THE FARMER: MARCH 9, 1912
Kews.-Oi Fairfidd County -Towns Westport BRADLEY AXE FACTORY NOT COMING HERE YET ' "(Special to The Farmer.) v.Rtrnrt- March 9. According to itlviees received ' in town yesterday G. W. Bradley's Sons will, not open their factory here at once, valthougli the company is still engaged in look in? for local capital to use in getting the business parted again and to use in rebuilding the company's plant in Weston. At the first of the month the amount of local cash which had been subscribed was far short of the needed amount and It was decided to take advantage of an opportunity to secure a factory partly equipped in Brooklyn, JC. Y. The following para graph, quoted from a letter received -in town yesterday is self-explanatory: j "After due consideration and deep thought it has been concluded that to save the spring trade for the Q. W. Bradley Sons, It would be wise to take a factory temporarily in Brook lyn, and not wait until it is rebuilt in "Westport. They have found one which Is partially equipped with the machinery that they- want. The oth r parts of the machinery will be brought at once and be installed. They are only taking a ' short lease and are prepared to then move ev erything to the plant when it is com-- pleted. v From that letter it will be. seen . that they expect to go ahead with ''building operations here and will -.imove from Brooklyn here as soon as the plant is ready for them. The balance of the letter quoted above is a solicitation for an. investment. 1 ' IiARGE TAXPAYERS."" .

Joseph March efti and Mrs. August Parnoffe, both Italians, are next door neighbors on Lenox Heights. Both families, as do all the other residents of that section, have been keeping hens. Recently many complaints have been made that the hens were trespassing too often.? upon neighbor ing property, and Mrs. Parnoffe, not to be bothered any longer, sold hers. Then last Sunday when she espied some of neighbor, Marchetti's hens-on her premises, she felt that she now had a right' to demand the trespassing to stop. But she not only demanded it to stop, but she caught one of tho hens and threw it over the line fence, doing no damage to the , hen,, but arousing Marchetti's anger. He pick ed up several stones and hurled them at her at . top speed, one of them striking just behind her right ear, and causing a very painful wound. Although. Mrs. Parnoffe has not yet consulted a, physician, her. ear bears the appearance . of being injured in such a manner that her hearing will be impaired. , Mrs. . Parnoffe had a warrant made out, charging March etti with assault, which was served Wednesday. On that day he was brought before Judge Wakeman, who held him under a small bond to ap pear in- court at three o'clock Friday afternoon. -Marchetti appeared on time and much testimony was heard on both sides, but It , appeared that Marchetti had done severe injury to Mrs. Parnoff ee, as well as being . un justified in doing it.

Out to Sea Without Damage The Housatonic . river is free from ice from its mouth to the dam at Derby. For several days the ice has been slowly breaking up in the har bor and open water has been gradual ly appearing on the way up the stream, s At 2 o'clock this morning the floes above the railroad bridge be gan to give way and since then . there has been a continuous procession of great cakes which have rushed down stream pounding and grinding again tt each other and against every obstruc tion met in their path. The cakes varied in thickness from J.wo to four feet. Drawtender Cosier was on watch all night to give the alarm if the Washington bridge was threaten ed but, although the ice came down with a deafening roar on the swollen river after the tide turned, it passed through the bridge without jamming and floated off into the Sound. Con ditions this year warranted the fear that a freshet would send the heavy Ice from up the river against the bridge with the probability-that it would be damaged if not carried away. Although the oldest inhabitant cannot remember a time when the ice on the river gained so great a depth, it has passed out with less trouble than usual. This announcement will re lieve the anxiety of people who have occasion to use the bridge every day and who would nave been obliged to go around Derby, or return to the primeval ferry had the bridge been de stroyed.

She argued with strike pickets, policemen and militiamen and got the point of view of; everyone whom she saw and who "looked interesting.".

Chandler to Talk To Men at Poli's Tomorrow Afternoon Brilliant Orator, Who Electrified Manufacturers at Recent Dinner, to Speak Under Y. M. C. A. Auspices " Probably the finest piece of oratory that has been heard in Bridgeport for many a year was the address of the Hon. Walter M. Chandler at the annual dinner of the Manufacturers' Association last month. Mr. Chandler held the audience so spellbound with . the brilliancy of his wit, the power and persuasiveness of his oratory, and the wisdom, of his remarks, that when Detective Burns opened the door at 12:20 and Mr. Chandler indicated that he would give way to the man whose deeds had made him nationally famous, the crowd shouted for him to go on.

Fine Tribute For Rev. Dr. McKenna -i- Worcester Priest to Lecture Here Tomorrow Evening for St. Patrick's Parish Excellent Concert Arranged In Connection With Lec ture on 1 1 Faith and Fa therland.' ' Referring to a reading of Hamlet by the Rev. Dr. Michael J. McKenna, who is to deliver a lecture under the audspices of St. Patrick's church at Poli's theatre, Sunday evening, the Worcester Gazette has the following to say of Dr. McKenna's ability: i "Father McKenna's reputation as an eloquent pulpit preacher and not ed Shakesperean scholar served aa the magnet that filled the theatre. His treatment of the character of Hamlet was discussed religiously, but without becoming in any sense controversial or even doctrinal. "That Father McKenna has made an exceptional study of Shakespeare no one will deny who was " fortunate enough to attend last night's recital. This is borne out by his dramatic reading of the lines, the ease with which he clearly pictured the situa tions,, and his Impersonations of the various characters. In his finished study, Father McKenna gave evidence that he can portray the characters of the tragedy with intelligence, ease and eraca. i J "In opening the recital, , Father Mc Kenna, paid a high tribute to , Shake speare, and especially" to his creation of the great drama, saying that in none other of the . great dramatist's productions does an understanding of human heart or of even the human soul appear as well as in "Hamlet." j In addition to the lecture at Poll's tomorrow evening there will be a fine concert by local and out of town tal ent, among the number being Nich-' olas Sebastian, tenor soloist of St. Patrick's cathedral, , New York; Wil liam Grab of New Haven, baritone; Miss Margaret Hogan, soprano;- and Mrs. John F.

Tells Farmer of Rapid Growth of Profession in America Stringent Precautions Tak en in Scotland to Guard Against Incompetence in This Line . "Public accounting in the United States Is gaining a strong foothold in the business community,". . said Wil liam Leslie, , of the firm of Leslie & Co., accountants, to a Farmer report er today. Mr. , Moore's company of chartered and certified public account ants has a branch office in this city, with headquarters in New York. Mr. Leslie and . William Moore, of his staff, were guests at the address delivered by Peter White at the Bus iness Men's lunch at the Stratfield, Thursday. He is convinced that pub lic accounting . is destined . to grow greatly in this country in the immed iate future. .Mr. Leslie has had 24 years experi ence in public accounting. Both he and his partner, Alexander Scott Banks, are charteded accountants of Scotland. - "It is not so many years ago since public accounting wras first introduced from Great Britain," said Mr. Leslie. "The first organized society was char tered some fifty odd years ago in Edinburgh, - which may be styled the birthplace of the profession. Scotland has turned out some of the ablest and most eminent accountants - the world ever knew, and to the land of cakes this country is indebted for the pro fession which is assuming nation-wide importance In the realm of finance and is yearly attaining such promi nence that the day is not far distant when every business house of any pre tension shall have its own independent auditor. ; - "The functions of the public ac countant are as varied as those of the legal profession and as important. Where the lawyer stands in relation to the law so does the accountant in the financial sphere. Unfortunately, however, the business man has yet to discern between the capably: train ed man and the 'expert' posing as such with nothing to substantiate his claim other than a little knowledge and voluminous nerve and audacity. It therefore behooves every man con templating the employment of such services to be guarded in his selection of the accountant to whom he unfolds his business secrets and be doubly sure that in the first place the selec tion falls upon one that is capable and equipped with the necessary training and that he has actually passed the reauired examinations. "But the passing of a written ex amination, however, is not, in itself, the full guarantee of the proficient practical accountant, for there are those who possess the ability to pass a test in theory, and elementary prac tice but fall far short of the mark when an intensely practical problem arises necessitating the exercise of a matured juderment based on a ripe ex perience. The Scottish method of training obligates the candidate for admission as a- chartered accountant -- -- - - Si) TWICE DAILY, VfEEK OF MARCH 11TH. The Originals! The Best! The Prettiest!
