' ' ' ! - Lent is now here and, though for mafly observed by only two religious ; denominations, it exercises a very ma terial influence, particularly upon so cial life. - Many men cut off, during the penitential period, one or 'morel of -cvhalt may perhaps ' bp " called their 1 vices: many women abstain' from'so'- 1 clety. divertisements oT'ourse, "they have none pf. the vices" and 'tjiere'fore v cannot observe" Lept as do altogether top' fw ipeql; It is well that suph a pe .' - riod preyajis; it would 'p better t ail would give'lt "some degree"' 'of "obs'erv ance. : " ." The Farmer does -not feel repentant . over Its policies . durjpg Jthe' past year, and yet it desires Jo temporarily abate mom of ' the . yices, "pf which it s ac oused by opponents of Its policies!

Spring is coming; bluebirds and rob ins have arrived, hens are getting down to active business, and eggs promise to be, if they are not now, cheaper than' the products of the Beef Trust. ' Thus, Lent brings compensations. New Britain has a charter commit tee which voted, Tuesday nightl that the Common Council should be empow ered to enact an ordinance regulating sports and amusements - on Sunday. This, if granted by the General Assem bly, would practically give local option upon the Sunday law. There would be decided benefits. It would prevent dis putes and litigation over the proper interpretation of the Sunday law.and it would enable local sentiment to deter mine "precisely what degree of enforce ment should prevail. Also, it would be in accord with a growing sentiment in .fayor pf a more iiberal Sunday than is now possible under the state law , in localities " which have, as in " Norwalk, a specially active and vigilant Minis ters'.
