The engagoment of Phil Sumner, of Rochester, chairman of the Yale prom enade committee and the cless of 1907, and Miss Emily Ensign, oi Orange, N. S., Is announced. THE FORGOTTEN POINT. Speaking of Senator Allison, I recall a story which, in its time, was much enjoyed by those who persisted in re garding President Harrison as hard to get at. The senator arranged a call on the President with three Iowa friends who desired to pay their respects to the Chief Magistrate. There was no delay, and before they could catch their breath the grangers found themselves shaking hands with the man whose face they had seen in all the magazines and newspapers, and on innumerable banners and transparencies. They had heard the persistent stories of the President s frigidity, and were sur prised at the warmth of their reception. After a few commonplace remarks back and forth, the President alluded to the senator's then recent narrow es cape from defeat for reelection, and was reminded of a "funny Incident" in some Indiana campaign in which he, himself, had narrowly escaped defeat. The four Iowans laughed heartily at the story, and again shaking hands with his Excellency, departed. The story as told the next day by a facetious correspondent was that, on resuming their seats in the carriage, Senator turned to Colonel Swaim (pres ant consul at Southampton, England), and Eiid: "That was a clever story the Presi dent told." The colonel responded, "Yes, senator; very good. Somehow I hadn't thought of the President as a good story-teller." The senator continued: "That was a capital joke at the end of It, but I can't just now recall it. Give me the point of It, and it'll all come back to me." The colonel turned to the Iowa edi tor who sat opposite to him and said: "Brlgham, you remember the point of that joke the President got off. What was It?" The editor at once grew thoughtful, and, after a brief silence, replied: "I remember the story in a general way, and I remember the joke at the end of It struck me as very funny at the time, but for the life of me I can't recall It now." Turning to a prominent Iowa politi cian who sat next to him the editor said: "Pat, you must surely remember it, for I observed you laughed louder and longer than the rest of us." By the this time Pat had sunk down into the big fur collar of his capacious overcoat and was almost asleep -for he had been out late the night before. The question was repeated, but the on ly response was a gruff "damflno." Thnonn 'RHe'bam'. in .Tilde1?. WORK ON STATE ROADS HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER J AS. II. MACDONALD. Is Preparing a Circular to be Sent to Contractors, Higiway .Commissioner James H. Macdonald is preparing a circular,; says the Hatrfod Times to be sent tol contractors of work on state roads calling their attention to the ni cessity of completing the work on un finished contracts as early as possibl this year. The circular will be replet with sound advice on road making, an will contain useful hints for the gu dance of the contractors. Commissioner Macdonald's enthus; iasm in the cause of good roads con tinues unabated. It is the kind of en thusiasm that is contagious, and hi s visit to a town is generally followed y a town meeting which votes an ap propriation to obtaina share of tJie state money for the improvement of jfre highways. He has arranged this yjar to begin a road in Greenwich near wvi state line at Portchester. This, as ie in terms of courtesy, describes It, f'i" be ' "Introducing Connec;icut to Njew York." The two states have had con siderably more than a bowing acquain tance for some time and to the 'advan tage of Connecticut when Mr. Maccjon ald left Albany, N. Y., to take upfhis residence In New Haven. Commission er Macdonald says that traveler In Europe have told him that in many respects Connecticut bears a resem blance to Switzerland. i Mr. Macdonald bears a willing' tri bute to the excellence of tii roails In Hartford and in the immediate ylclrv lty of this city. He says there .Is ho city in the state that can compare 'even approximately with Hartford it Its streets, where improved pavemc'nt is laid, and as for the outlying higpways his difficulty has been to determine Just where the state money should be expended on improvement, all th? high ways are so well taken care of( This remark suggested a query if the com missioner found much difficulty In In ducing the local authorities of towns to agree with him when the location, "f a piece of improved road was to be de termined. The reporter, wiio fiad th conversation with Mr. Macdonald, knev that the commissioner's powers of per suasion were irressistible, but he wa curious to know If the operation of the law produced a conflict between state an'd local officials. Commissioner Macdonald said he had onll a veto power as highway commissione"" and he could not dictate to a town vhere to ; "But you can withhold the state ap propriation If the town authorities do not satisfy you In regard to location-" pemarked the reporter, j I "Yes, but we manag to get along 'without serious friction' the commis sioner replied. j j "In the long run you have your way I guess about location-" i "I see that the state gets the best possible return for Us money spent on roads. The policy of tii4 state is to im prove the highway between tpwns," Commissioner Xfacdonald s re- INSTITUTE FOR THE BLIND. SYNOPSIS OF ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1905 ' was ply. Commissioner Macdonald . said his hope was to see the state road of 120 miles completed. This' would give a passage through the state and 'would open up its scenic beauties, and natural advantages to visitors. With the auto mobile traveling in the country Is be- j coming more general land it beoooved; the state more than, ever to improve Its highways. They aij used than ever before advantage of Connects as easy as possible foi e more generally and it is to the ut to make them' travel. IMPORTANT REAL ESTATE SALES.

Submitted to Governor Henry Rob erts by the Board of Education for tbe Blind. The board of education for the blind has submitted to Governor Roberts Its report for the year ending September 30, 1905. The report says to-at 1150 blind people are to a greater or less degree now under the care and oversight of the board. , A part of this number is at school and a part learning trades. Reports from the Perkins institution and the school department of the Con necticut Institute for the Blind relative to the scholarship and conduct of ttie state pupils at the respective institu- j tions are very satisfactory, and the re commendations for their continuance j as state pupils have been approved by this board. The progress of those at j the department of trades of the Con necticut institute was of a very satis-; factory character, their application and tiie result accomplished being better than in any proceeding year. Five of the pupils In this department finished the course of training during the year and are being established in business. One was discontinued by reason of in ability to learn and there has been one doath. A comparision of the work done in the trades department of the in stitute this year wife, the work done there last year shows that 3,617 more brooms were made and 500 more chairs were caned. The. superintendent re ports that he has found a ready market for all their work, and in fact he has baen obliged to decline a large number of orders. This goes to prove the need of a workshop. The general standard of health has been rather above -the average of preceeding years. It is a matter of particular note that a substantial begining has been made towards a building fund for the school department and the outlook In this I direction is very encouraging. Up to I this time subscriptions and gifts towards this fund have come mainly ; from Hartford. At tiie annual meeting of the board in July Mrs. Foster, to the great regret of the board, resigned the office of soecretary and treasurer, and John Dunbar Rusher was elected her suc cessor. The receipts for the year amounted to $21,492.89. The disbursements were as follows; Perkins Institution, Boston, $3,600; Connecticut Institute. Hartford, $16,650: transporatlon and clothing; $798.02; re port, $84.85; traveling expenses of secretary, $296,37; office expenses, $63.65; salary of secretary, $1,800; state bene ficiaries, $641.94; expenses delegate to St. Louis convention, $58.25; state audi tors, $176.03; premium on secretary's bond, $17.50.
