THE PLAINVILLE CAMP AllRAyGE.VVSTS JO MAKK II OF SrHCIAL INTEREST MIS THAU. Camp Opens August 83 and Clones August 88 Assembly Lusts From August SO to September 3 Several Churches Erecting New Bouses Interesting Frogrnmme Arranged. The New Haven Methodist churches are making arrangements to have large delegations at the camp meeting which pens at Plalnvllle August 23 and con tinues until August 28, Inclusive. Houses on the camp ground are owned by the First Methodist church, East Pearl street church, Epworth church end Trinity Methodist of this city. The house of the Epworth church is now being built and will probably be nearly enough finished to use at this year's camp. Last season the attendance from New Haven at the camp meeting was larger than ever before since the camp has been held at Plalnvllle, and the Indica tions are that if good weather prevails during the camp week this year the attendance from this city will be even greater than it was last year. The grounds are being put into fine shape and the drainage of the camp site has been put into perfect condition. The water supply is good and an ample supply of pure water is conveniently at hand. Several houses are now in course of construction on the grounds for various churches about the state. This will be the thirty-second annual camp, and the programme of services to be held during its continuance Is one of unusual interest.' A fine list of speakers has been secured. Three ser mons will be delivered each day, after Monday, the opening day, when there will be besides the presiding elder's ad dress by Rev. Crandall J. North, a ser mon by Rev. H. L. Glover of Durham. In addition to the sermons each day there will be meetings in the interest of various special lines of work. The Young People's services will be under the direction of Rev. G. W. Car ter of Hartford during the entire en campment, and the children's hour will fee .conducted by Miss Lillian E. Glad win of this city, and Mrs. W. F. Prince of Bloomfield. On Saturday morning, August 28, at 10 o'clock, after the close of the annual love feast, the Swedish camp meeting will open under the auspices of of the Swedish Camp Meeting association. This meeting will continue through Saturday and Sunday, and will close with an early love feast Monday morn ing. Last year about 200 Swedes were In attendance, and still larger numbers are expected to be present this year. The Sabbath will be observed with euitable religious services by the Eng lish speaking people remaining upon the grounds over Sunday, but no visit tors are Invited to be present on that day from abroad. The singing will be conducted by Mr. I. H. Meredith, well known as a sing ing evangelist and composer of popu- lar religious music, recently director of music in the First church, Waterbury. The Methodist. Hymnal will be the standard book used both at the camp meeting and at the assembly. Those who have Hymnals will please bring them to the camp meeting; those who liave not can obtain them at the office at very low prices. On the Monday following camp week proper will 'begin the so called as sembly, which will continue until Fri day, September 3, inclusive. Each day during the assembly will be devoted to same special subject or to a special class of people. Monday, August 30, will be people's day, Tuesday, August 81, Epworth league day; "Wednesday, September 1, Grand Army day; Thurs day, September 2, Sunday school day; Friday, September 3, Temperance day.

Tho Ti1ir,i,nia Knv who rjut in the past week under canvas at Short Beach arrived home Saturday, xney ,were Harold Hlgglns, George Hisoock, Frank Wright and Willie Eustls. They report an excellent time. During the week they had several visitors from up Plalnvllle way. Misa Hattie Robinson and Miss An nie Roberts of Plalnvllle are staying Bt Woodmont. Twenty boys belonging to the Boys' brigade section connected with Hum phrey street Congregational church, who camped out the past week at Say brook, arrived here Saturday evening all well pleased with their week's out ing. at Birws1 roisr, Mitvonn. Annual Plonlo of the Thaddens Nettleton Ansoalutlon A Pleasant Occasion. The annual picnic of the Thaddeus Nettleton association was held at Burns' Point, Milford, last Saturday. The arrangements for dinner were made by Messrs. Joseph R. Clark and George W. Plumb of the executive committee, who performed that work in a very fine manner, Mr. Peterson as usual preparing the chow.der aad if anybody knows how to ,do it in good shape It Is "Pete."1 ' After the dinner the 'members Were called Into the pavilion for the election of officers for the ensuing year In the absence of the president, Almon C. Nettleton, who" met with ;an accident some time ago. Mr. George W. Coy, the vice president:, presided. The secretary and treasurer were read and accepted. The following offi cers were elected: Almon C. Nettleton, president; Albert Nettleton, vice presi dent; E. W. Baldwin, secretary; Joseph R. Clark, treasurer; executive commit tee, George W. Plumb and Mrs. George W. Coy of Milford, Mrs. J. S. Lane of Meriden, Mrs. S. F. Baldwin of Bridge port, Mrs. G. T. Smith of New Haven. After the election 6f the officers the company were entertained by remarks from George W. Coy, the retiring vice president, and music by Mr. Peterson, who, if not called on, would think this share of the entertainment had not been perfocmed. While "Pete" was in the act of performing his culinary la bors and when in his most diligent and devoted work one of the company took a Kodak snap shot of him, which alarmed "Pete," who was mollified thoroughly, however, on being assured that the "picture" would not appear in the newspapers and that a copy of the photograph would be sent to him. About forty people attended this very pleasant annual gathering. . TELEGRAPHY THROUGH LOVE. (Continued from Fourth Page.) enough, It might appear, to turn one from aimless visiting, but still the pres sure continued, as if a hand were drawing one, and I set out to discover their new house, till I had disturbed four families with vain inquiries. Then the 'remembrance of my unmade and imperative calls came upon rrie, and I abandoned my fruitless quest with some sense of shame. Had a busy clergyman not enough to do without such a wild goose chase? And one grudged the time he had lost. Next morning the head of that house hold I had yesterday sought in vain came into my study with such evident sorrow on his face that one hastened to meet him With anxious inquiries. '.'Yes, we are in great trouble. Yesterday our little one (a young baby) took very ill and died in the afternon. My wife was Utterly overcome by the shock, and we would have sent for ;you at the time, but had no messenger. I wish you had been there if you had only known." "And the time?" "About half past 3." So I had known, but had been too Impatient . Many other cases have occurred when it has been laid on me to call at a cer tain house where there seemed so lit tie reason that 1 used to Invent ex cuses, and where I found some one es pecially needing advice or comfort, or I called and had no courage to lead up to the matter, so that the call of no avail, and. afterward some one asked whether I knew, for she had watted for a word Nor do I remember any case where be inig inwardly - moved to go after this fashion, it appeared, in the end that I had been befooled. ' u People may live in an atmosphere of sympathy which will be a eommunt eating medium. When some one an pears to read another's thoughts, as we have all seen done at public exhibitions, this was, evidently by physical signs, and it served no good purpose. It was a mechanical gift, and was used for an amusement. This is knowledge of an other kind, whose conditions are spiri tual and whose ends are ethioal. Be tween you and the person there must be some common reeling; it rises to a height in the hour of trouble, and its call for help. The correspondence here is between heart and heart, and the medium through which the message passes is love. Rev. John Watson, D. D. (Ian Maclaren) In the Independent TURNIP SEEDS ALL KINDS.

As we remarked last week, very few non-taxable securities are being offered for sale. There is a continued call for New Haven Water company and Fair Haven and Westvllle railroad.

Diamond Match company was steady around 141 M; New York Biscuit at 50. The sustained rise in the New York stock market continues and attracts the attention of the local Investors and brokers. The Union Pacific stock sold at 14 yesterday, and on the heels of this rise In the stock comes the announcement of the first assessment of $5 per share, payable August 26. Total assessment to be paid will be 15 per cent. Other reorganized railroads will probably soon have reorganization schemes call ing for more capital from the afflicted stockholder.

He Starts a Fight and Gets the Worst : '.' .of it. Saturday night Patsy Donahue, an employe of the' Yale Safe and Iron Works, entered Morton's saloon intoxl cated, and finding three negroes there began to abuse them. They set upon Donahue with beer glasses, knocked him down and trampled on him, at the same time pounding him on the head with bottles. A general saloon fight ensued. The West Haven police were sent for, and on their arrival, the fight was stooped. The negroes, Charles Low, Fred Perse and David Cornell, ' were arrested and locked up. Donahue was taken home, where Dr. Wilson sewed up a great cut across his nose and face. Later the injured man was sent to the hospital, where he will be confined for some time. DIED OF HIS BURNS, James Wade, the three-year-old son of Patrick Wade, who was burned Sat urday morning while playing with matches, died at the hospital at one o'clock Saturday afternoon.
