The library, post office, grocery stores, the Eastern Underwear plant, and even the liquor shops were closed. There were large congregations at all the churches. The day was uncommonly quiet and dull. Such was the demand for hot cross buns at the Home Made Bakery that the establishment had to be run all night.

Postmaster Bristol observed Good Friday by closing the post office, and partaking of hot cross buns for break fast. Capt. E. Bedell Benjamin said yes terday that he never had any intention of going to Bermuda, as has been an nounced in some of the public prints. He has not as yet recovered from the effects of the grip, and thinks he is better off at home than traveling. Thursday evening last Frederick S. Schnell, who is one of the test opera tives at the central telephone office in Bridgeport, and who lives on Freeman avenue, near Paradise Green, was very agreeably surprised by a large num ber of his friends who came over from the city to celebrate his silver wedding. In the company there was a quartette from the choir of St. John's church, and there came by trolley and auto nearly all the employes of the South ern Telephone Company. They load ed the big table in the dining room with presents in the shape of hand some china, cut glass, silverware, and many other things which all women delight to have in a house. The chief from South Norwalk was present, and a good number of "hello girls" added to the delights of the evening. There was a plenty of music, and during the evening abundant refreshments were served. Mr. Schnell says there is a steady increase in the telephone busi ness and the company counts upon having 100 additional telephones in stalled every month. Just now these instruments are being put into school houses, where they are much needed in cases of emergency. All the schools in Bridgeport have telephones with a branch office at the city hall. The schools of this town are also provided with them. It can only be a question cf a short time when all the schools in the State will have telephones. There were nine deaths in town dur ing March, three of which were in fants. The oldest persons who died were David B.

In his last sermon lie v. Mr. jEggle ston spoke of having seen this spring already more than 20 blackbirds on the limb of a tree not far from the par sonage. Our local ornithologist, who is up in such matters, says the appear ance of the red-winged blackbird is a sign of spring not likely to be decep tive. Unlike the weather bureau the birds eldom make mistakes in their weather predictions, and this year they have arrived a fortnight earlier than usual. Robins and more rarely blue birds occasionally remain all winter in Stratford, seeking the depths of the j woods and swamps, and the song sparrow is not an invariable migrant. But these birds cannot be regarded as characteristic of the winter season; so that when robin, bluebird, red wing and song sparrow are here, not as spies, but in battalions, as seen by Mr. E.ggleston, we may feel certain that spring has come. In truth the woods in winter are full of life. Think of the number of birds who come down from the north when the snow robs them of their food. The lively wood- j peckers, the noisy jays, the cheerful 1 chickadees, the nuthatches never de- I sert us, and on almost any day in the winter a walk in the woods up Putney way, or sneiton, win discover tne juncos and tree sparrows, and perhaps the red-polls and other northern war blers.
