This week's Walpole correspondence in the Claremont Advocate contained the fol lowing : . ; -The writer has been' asked by an anti quarian friend in Massachusetts to look up the subject of the early navigation of tbe Connecticut river. One oi his own early but rather faint memories is of seeing large flat-boats loaded with goods pushed up the rives by poles. This must have been be fore the opening oi the Cheshire railroad in January, 1850. He also remembers the tradition that a small steamboat once ran up the river as far as Bellows Falls. Inquiry among older residents connrms these mem ories and shows that for many years heai : goods, such as salt, molasses and rum were brought up the river on flat-boats. These boats were propelled by pole s.except when the wind was from the south, then a large sail was set, and more rapid progress was made. They passed around Bellows Falls by means of the locks in the canal and went a considerable distance above the Falls. The southern end of the route was at Hartford Mr. Allen Duaehee, who has lived near the river all his long life oi 85 years, sa) s tbe boats were in use as long ago as he can remember, but were discontinued after 1850. He remembers distinctly the little steamer which ran one seasen 65 or 66 years ago from Hartford to Bellows Falls. It was commanded by Capt. Griswold oi Bellows Falls, who had been a lumberman I along the river, and it carried passengers and freight. At that time John lurner, who lived where Mr. Dunshee formerly lived and afterwards moved to Alstead, kept a boatmen's tavern and entertained the boatmen over night. They were hard drinkers, and often kept him busy until midnight nrxing toddy. Later the boat men cooked their meals on the boat. Mr, Dunshee remembers that Capt. Griswo'd stopped his steamboat opposite Turner's and took aboard Turner's daughters and a young lady, who later became Airs. Van she?, and brought them up as : far as the village. - t ' , Perhaps some old resident of Bellows Falls, through the Times or Gazette, can add something to these memories,' which seemed to the writer of sufficient impor t&nce to be preserved. letter from claremont. ::' ',r: Tue following lette? was received at the Times office yesterday. tV-. To the Editor oi the Bellows Falls Times : t Dear Sir : In looking over today's issue Oi the Claremont Advocate, I notice among the Walpole items, an article upon the for mer use of flat boats on the Connecticut river, as a means of transporting freight etc., as a regular business. The sugges tion was also made that some one might be able to give some data concerning tbe same, through your paper. My father, the late Oscar J. Brown, who was the well-known stage proprietor, and who died here in Claremont, in March, lsyz, ha' from my earliest recollection, spoken to mo a great deal about his lather, the me Amos Brown oi Hartford, Vt., as having for many vears been engaged in running a regular line of these flat boats, propelling them by means of poles, or occasionally sails, when feasible, ihe boats carried down tbe river, to Hartford, Conn. , farm produce, and brought back such groceries and other freight, including some kinds of cloth, as were needed by the people at the northern end, ot tbe line, which was at Harttord, Vt. Ihese voyages were con sidered to have their perils, especially at the locks at Bellows i alls and Holyoke and the families ot tbe boatmen were always in a state of anxiety. I am sorry that l am unable to give you more dates but my grandfather, Amos Brown, died at Hartford, Vt., in October, 1834, so this method oi transportation must have been in use tor many years beiore that time. I cannot think that these boats were used ior such transportation as late as 1850, ior my father's business was such as to bring him into' connection with public freightage of every sort, and he always spoke oi them as something belonging to the past.

Vow the Actor, Who Refuses to Be Har ried, Taught a Bervltor a Ceaasn. William Gillette, tie playwright and actor, la extremely deliberate in man ner and speech, both on the stage and off. While In Ban Francisco recently he had occasion to take his meals at a well known restaurant in that city. The waiter Who attended to his wants was quit tne opposite irom wuene In disposition and had a way ot skipp ing off before the latter had finished giving -his order, which, necessitated his being recalled time alter tuna. "I "will have a iporterhouse steak,"' Mr. Gillette would drawl, "and some asparagus and same new potatoes." " "Yes. sir," and off would skip the aer waiter, with the order only half glvwn. Alter a week of 6tich treatment Mr. Gillette got tired end he laid for the waiter. "You may .bring me," began the ac tor at dinner one night, "an order of roaat mutton, some new peas, and ah potatoes, and" Off started the attendant. But Gil lette waB ready for him. Arising from his seat he took the waiter gently by th arm and walked down tha hall with him. the menu In his other hand, "A-nd some nlneanple ice. and let me tsee yes, an order of queen frit ters and ah Jafter that you may hrino' snmA Bochefort cheese and a toasted biscuit and ah a small cup of coffee." By this time the two had reached ;he door leading into tne kitcnen . tie- leasing the speechless waiter Gillette waved him courteously through the swinging portal and nonchalantly re traced his steps up the dining naii Thereafter" the waiter waited. King Menellk's Toya, The child in King Menellk of Abys sinia was once easy to amuse. Very little sufficed to entertain blm, and Vi- comete de Ponclns relates in the Nine teenth Century that the first sugar loaf which was presented to him threw him into ecstaciea of pleasure, and that he and his consort were discover ed with that blessed product of ciliT Izatlon between them, licking It vigor ously. ' ... But those good times are past; Euro peans have brought Menellk bo many toys that he has become critical. When a new traveler, la announced he now awaits with impatience the customary present, trying to find out beforehand whether tt is to he something new,-in which case tha audience is speedily granted. He is much interested in all machin ery, which, including watches, he in variably takes to pieces. Sometimes he deigns to be present at the unpack ing of the traveler's boxes, and to ap proprlate any little object that pleases him. Such Informal examinations please him vastly. "If I had not been a King." he re marks- at times, "I should like to have been a custom house officer." Vlcomte de Ponclns pleased Menellk so much with a pair of hastily darned socks that 'he insisted on'unsocklngl for his own benefit a party of mission aries who passed through Adls Abeba shortly afterward; but nowadays he musitj receive more costly gifts, anflj like Oliver Twist, he asks for more.
