WESTPORTER ACTING
AS GOOD SAMARATAN
STRANGELY ASSAULTED
John Lyon, Main Street number, Sus
tains Broken Jaw Was Helping
a Supposed Drunk on His Way.
(By Our Special Correspondent.)
Westport, 'July 8. It was ' under
rather peculiar circumstances that
John Lyon, the Main street plumber
was assaulted in State street near the
Fable building early Sunday morning.
To-day, Mr. Lyon under the care of
Dr. J. M. Nolan is confined to his
home with his Jaw in splints. Mr.
Lyon with Fred Mills was walking
homeward early Sunday morning
when in Sach's doorway he noted the
.prone figure of -what h thowrht was
a drunken man. Both men awoke the
supposed inebriate who took offense
at oeing awakened from his slumbers.
xney acted only in a friendly spirit
intending to help the "ilnfoztunate"
man to get on a car and proceed to his
destination. They did this aa the man
was a stranger to them and believing
that he was from out of town. Ac
cording to Mr. Lyon the man sat up
in the doorway pouring abuse ' upon
him and Mills for their assistance.
When thep had him thoroughly awoke
ana upon jus feet they left him and
proceeded towards home. Mr. Lyon
says mat when near the Fable build
ing in atate street, 'the supposed
drunk came up to them demanding
to mow why they wanted to fight with
uuu. w oraa louowea. uyon says
mat without warning he was struck
on the Jaw and momentarily stun
ned. Before he could raise his hand
to defend himself he was struck under
me eye. At is JUypns opinion and
that of his physician who examined
the wounds, that Lyon's assailant did
not use his fists when he struck but
wielded a black Jack. The Injured
man claims that when they were ar
guing before the blow was struck,
that the supposed drunk kept putting
his hand into his pocket. No oth
er blows were struck for immediately,
after a crowd of young fellows from
the center appeared on the scene and
separated the combatants. It was
stated about the center yesterday
that the stranger Is an ex-member of
the navy and is now a resident of the
Greens Farms district.
Lyon advances the opinion that the
assaulting is a new hold up game. He
believes the man feigned intoxication
so as to grab an easy victim. . He
followed his men and when he saw
a chance assaulted one of them. The
fact that other men appeared on the
scene prevented him from carrying
out his purpose. Lyon has not made
a complaint to the police.

BACK TO THE SOIL
REMEDY FOR HIGH
COST OF LIVING
Small Farm With Something to
Sell Every Day the Secret
of Getting by V
(Special o the Farmer.) V
Stratford, July 8, "There will be
a bumper crop of peaches this year"
asserted Former Sheriff John J. Wil
liams yesterday. This will he-good
news to the housewives of this sec
tion who were disappointed by the
small crop of strawberries and the
consequent high prices for the local
product -The former sheriff operates
one of the most complete ari'y profit
able fruit farms and markpy gardens
In this state and his methra are wor
thy of attention and stiyiy by those
who have an Idea of getting hack to
the soil. -. --..' "
Yesterday and foe a week - past
Squire Williams has kept every avail
able man on his place In - his peach
orchard thinning out the crop to in
sure larger and more perfect fruit.
The men remove about half of the
fruit on .the tree leaving what re
mains well apart to allow the sun and
air to reach every side of the fruit.
On this farm there is something' to
sell every day in the year. So trees
are planted and the ground between
the rows Is utilized for other crops.
The ground is very rich and early In
his career as a, fruit grower the own
er found that this was one cause
of winter killing. The rank growth
encouraged" hy plenty of feed failed
to "harden and mature before the
freezing temmperatureB of - winter
reached them. As a. consequence tbe
fruit 'bads which are formed In the
fall were winter killed. A sturdier
tree developed In ground less rich
and the branches made , more wood
and were able to withstand the frost
of winter with greater, succeea.
With markets so close it ia unwise
for the grower to put all his eggs
In one basket." Squire Williams avoids'
this as far as possible. . If some crops
fan others will snake good, and be is
never totally swamped as some far
mers are when their one crop fails.
On ths farm which is located on the
Canaan road the season opens with
asparagus which lasts until it Is time
to pick strawberries, ; In the mean
time the garden begins to offer beets,
lettuce and other early vegetables. '
This year the owner estimates that
he was short 16,000 quarts of straw
berries on bis usual oropv but be
filled In "with other garden crops. The
strawberry season Is now practically
over. The late frosts in the spring
caught the blossoms Just as the fruit,
was setting- and two-thirds of -the crop
In this section was destroyed.
Black and red raspberries are now
coming in and a. Mg. crop Is expected.
This' wQl make -up . in some -measure
for the shortage in strawberries and
the provident housewives will have
something to put away In jars for the
future.
The value of care said cultivation by
Improved methods is demonstrated "by
the currant crop which, is now being
marketed. Ten thousand quarts have
already been sold at good prices. They
bring 8 to 12 cents a quart at whole
sale. Squire ' Williams has taken
great pride in his currants and prob
ably has the finest fruit in the state.
Side by side are rows of bushes treat
ed differently. Those which have
been neglected and will be removed
having? been supplanted by peach trees
are full of fruit but of about the or
dinary size. Those bushes which have
received greater care are loaded with
currants of enormous size. The
greater part as large as the ordinary
marble. The crop is profitable. ;
Plum trees are loaded to the break
ing point and the thinning process
will be extended to . these as soon, as
possible. - So all through the year in
terspersed with garden crops the
fruits come along making a continuous
return in ready cash. There is about
an acre of onions on the place which
will be harvested and stored away for
sale next winter or spring. Besides
these there - is celery, carrots, cab
bage early and late, sweet corn, now
commencing to tassel, and a hundred
other crops so arranged that the force
is always busy rain or shine and cash
flows in all through the season to pay
them off.
Squire Williams believes in local
markets. Every morning; he loads
two wagons which have regular routes
in the city. Peas, sweet corn and
other vegetables whose. virtue and pal-
atabillty are dependent ' upon their
being absolutely fresh thus reach the
customer as early and as fresh' as if
taken from the garden in tbe , back
yard. Customers have discovered
this and the demand often exceeds
the supply. It ia not in every city
that the housewife is able to place on
the table at noon vegetables which
have ' been taken from the groun the
morning of the same day.
Squire Williams has made money
from his farm and expects to make a
good deal more. He says that any
intelligent man can make a good liv
ing on a small place and lay up mon
ey if he operates his ground proper
ly. It is not bo. much a. matter of
luck as some people believe as it is
of care and attention under a proper
system. . There is plenty of Jcod in
this vicinity which can be operated
as market gardens with profit. "Visitors
are always welcome at the Canaan
Road seed farm and the owner is al
ways redy to give amateurs the benefit
of his experience in raising almost ev
erything that is indigenious to this cli
mate or can be forced to grow here.
He has saved many amateurs from
loss by his timely suggestions. He
asserts that this is the true remedy
for the hight cost of living so much
complained of.
A bunch of flowers and long stream
ers make a charming touch on & parasol.
