PROTEST TOPRES. ILLES COMMUTERS COMPLAIN IIS m ANNUAL FAIR GUILFORD PLAYS HOST IT Takes the Three 10 ! of tA' petition has been circulated and igned by nearly 100 commuters be tween this city and points on the New York division to Bridgeport to have the train which leaves Bridgeport at 8:53 every week day morning and stops at ell stations continued In the Winter schedule. It came out unoffi cially a few days ago that when the fall timetable goes Into effect next month this train will be discontinued. The commuters had nothing direct from the higher officials of the road on the matter, but Friday morning It 1 said a petition was sent through the train and about 100 persons put their names to it. This petition, according to the intention of the commuters, was to be forwarded to President Mel len and It asked that he continue this train In service. This is the only train operated by the railroad which will bring the dally riders Into this city before 1 o'clock and some of them assert that it is quite necessary in their business that they get here before that hour. The trolley service, they say, is too slow, on the Bridgeport line to give them a reasonably good service and they pro test quite vigorously against the com pany compelling them to wait until the next train which arrives here at 7:25 a. m. A passenger official of the rail road, in confirming the statement that this train will be withdrawn next month, said that while appearances might indicate that the accommoda tion was a payer, such was not the fact He stated that a majority of the riders were dead heads, railroad em ployes, etc., who travel on passes. A few years ago this same train was removed. Protests were entered .. with the management and after a while the service was restored. I. W. C. A. ATTRACTIVE.

New Haven Water Company Will Car ry Pipes There Next Year. Stockholders of the New Haven Water company at a special meeting held yesterday morning accepted an amendment to the company's charter granted by the general assembly per mitting them to furnish water In Ches. hire. The extension of the company's plant to Cheshire is the result of the com pany a year ago acquiring additional water sheds in Prospect by the pur chase of a pond there known as Ger ald's pond. This is about three miles outside of Cheshire and it is at the head of Ten Mile brook, one of the trib utaries of the Quinniplac river. President Whitney of the Water com pany said yesterday that the company has not yet made any arrangements to build a pipe line In Cheshire but it is probable that the water will be car ried Into that town in another year. It will also supply water to some parts of Hamden. i's Safe Object to the Withdrawal the Early Train from Bridgeport. You run no risk when buying a Studebaker Automobile, because behind every car is that Studebaker reputation for thoroughness born of over fifty-five years' experience in the construction of vehicles of every kind. The Studebaker long ago passed the experimental stage. Its past achievements and proved efficiency makt it a car of unusual reliability. This year's Model H combines all those points of superi ority for which last year's car was so famous supplemented by that refinement of detail characteristic of the name Studebaker. Made with Limousine and Landaulette bodies, painted and trimmed to suit purchaser. Many unusual advantages are offered New Yorkers in the purchase of a Studebaker. First, any possible repair can be made instantly at the great Studebaker establishment right here in New York, without any delay or expense of shipping car to the factory. Then again you have ail the convenience of our fully equipped garage, situated in the heart of the cilv. We promise quick delivery.

NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY & MADISON. 1 & (Special Journal-Courier News Service.) Madison, Sept. 23. Miss Grace Hall Johnson was in Madison Saturday with her brother Edgar and returned home. Near Summer hill, north part of the town, feeling well as usual. Sunday she went to North Madison to church, returning home felt badly and went to bed. A physician was sent for, but she lived only until about 9 a. m., hav ing had a shock of apoplexy. The fam ily is one of the old families of that part of the town. A brother a few years ago was found apparently mur dered, but no one was ever found that was punished for his death. Friday night a musical was given at the residence of the North Madison pastor. A number were there and took part. North Madison has a num ber of good voices to take part In such gatherings as well as pianists who can Play. Saturday nht a number gathered at the home of Joel M. Hill, North Madison, the occasion being his birth day, 74 years old. Mr. Hill has been a lifelong resident of that'part of Madi son and until the brother, Horace O., moved away, the three Hill brothers were always to be seen up that way Deacon Henry S. Hill, Joel M. Hill and Horace O. Hill all lived within sight of each other, and near them was their father's old home. Seldom do three brothers settle in life oo near their birthplace and so near each other, and it wtlll be a long time when three other brothers with the same standard of honesty and woi'th will live, in a com munity. Old fashioned in their Ideas -of what man to man should be and if those ideas were more prevalent to day, would we hear so much about trusts, etc? Oliver H. Dudley, the North Madison selectman, has been doing some repair ing, much needed on the roads-and in a substantial manner. Wapus Woods road Is a favorite drive for those who go spooning. A man says he has seen many a kiss giv en up that roadway the past summer, and not once did any one appear ,to be mad about It, In fact he said the young ladies were pretty enough for any one to kiss and he didn't blame the young men a bit. In the tearing down of the house burned July 4, it carries many of the older ones back to years a?o, when Joseph w. Hand owned much of the land near where this hou.se stood to the time when Alva O. Wilcox was the man who conveyed Uncle Sam's mail to and fro over many miles, cast and west of Madison. Mr. Hand was also interested in Uncle Sam's postal ser vice. He was sort of a judge In the postal department at Washington. D. C, that Is he had charge of the return letters what is now termed the dead letter department. Mr. Hand sold this house aforementioned to Alva O. Wil cox, who sold It to John Dan Ms about or a little before the war. The housj was moved f.om the comer, now occu pied by Mrs. 'Emily L, Wilcox, to wlure ilt was burned. Mr. Daniels fold it to Peter Vog.-l and to the present gencrx tions it was known as the Vogfl Ivmso since Mr. Vngel vacated it.

The apple crop in Madison and north of here seems to be in strnnv down towards the seashore, many trees o-d lUHueu. rnougn small in mitny cases, th'ls condition continues until nearly up to Rockland, while there to see an anple tree with apples on It Is rare. After leaving iuH.-.mmi, going towards Durham, soon after reaching th,e Durham town line, apples on the trees are quite plenty! Some trees have, none,. but not many.' The same rule seems to hoid good go ing from DurhnrH'to Guilford. Streaks of apple trees with apples; then for a few miles, none. One partv in Dur ham had 1,000 baskets of peaches for which it Is said 'he got $2 a basket. Other peach orchards had not even one on the trees.
