The cause of temperance is taking a

Mr. J. M. Thompson had a narrow es

The friends of temperance at the Hub
are, we should judge, losing some of the
valor heretofore shown in purging them
selves from the traffic in 'hardware." If
half we hear about guzzling, carried on
within a stone's throw of the temple of jus
tice, is true, the traffic must be not a little
lively. Some of the poor fellows from this
region, whom the grand jury got hold of,
are of the opinion that a saloon under the
court house would be preferable to any
other locality in the county.
The Pierpont case, to , which allusion
was made a week or two since, involving
Prof. Andrews, principal of the school at
that place, took its turn before the grand
jury and was dismissed. The injury to

been from a fall from scuffliog upon a
window casing. The blackboard pointer,
though broken in the Professors hand, in
chastisement of the boys, could not, ac
cording to report, have produced the
wound, which was but a small affair.
We have been handed a copy of the
N. T. Weekly Witness of Dec 28th, 1876,
which was taken from the wreck at the
bridge. It contains a fine portrait of the
late P. P. Bliss, and an article about his
talent as a composer of Sunday-school mu
sic Little did the editor of the Witness
think when he penned those lines, that Mr.
Bliss and a large number of his papers con

be wrecked at Ashtabula bridge. The pa

There is another evil under the sun
beside obituary poetry and obituary reso
lutions, and that is local puffery by corres
pondents. We have in mind a certain itin
erate professor, who, wherever he turns
np, secures from our local correspondents
a laudatory notice of not very modest
length or detail. We have thought but
this may be a mistake that where we have
no correspondent, there is one improvised
for the occasion. Now this seems to be a
very cheap way of building up a reputa
tion, especially as it does not cost even the
price of a subscription $2 a year. When
this thing becomes regular and uniform, it
is rather an imposition upon the press
which calls for reform. As we have been
quite generous but perhaps not more so
than our co temporaries in this way, there
will be no offense taken, we presume, if
we hold up a little hereafter. .
The L. S. & M. & Ry. Co. have now
got their water works at this place for ex
tinguishing fire, in working order. In ad
dition to the five hydrants located about
the depot buildings, one more has been
placed in the pump house by the bridge.
All the necessary hose is at hand in conve
nient places and in sufficient quantity, to
play on any of the company's buildings.
At the pump house there is 200 feet of 2
inch rubber hose, one end of which is at
tached to the hydrant and the balance is
wound on a reel, and can be drawn out
upon the -Jrm of fire. Last Wednesday
afternoon iv trial was made to see how far
and with how much force a stream of wa
ter could be thrown. The hose was laid
and a stream was thrown through 200 feet
of hose and a inch nozzle, . over the
bridge and nearly to the east abutment.
Mr. Tilden, the company's Superintendent
of water works, was present, and all were
satisfied with the result.
Presentation. The retirement of Judge
Canfield from the bench, which took place
on Monday last, was made an occasion for
a testimonial of respect from members of
the bar, officers of the court, and of the
county, on Tuesday evening of - last week.
A handsome ebony cane, gold mounted,
duly inscribed with the names of donors
and donee, was presented, at the Jefferson
House Judge Chaffee making the presen
tation speech. Judge Canfield was taken
by surprise, and somewhat at a disadvan
tage, .but acquitted himself very creditably.
After the presentation, the company in
dulged in a snpper of oysters, in Berny
Baldwin's best style.
Judge Sherman took his seat immediate
ly upon the retirement of Judge Canfield.
Guards were in receipt of their long-looked
for Springfield rifles. They are in the
very best condition, being free from rust
and dirt, and have no doubt seen little, if
any use. - There are fifty of them, with a

company is now happy.
Fire Alarm Telegraph.
The Lake Shore & Mich. Southern Ry.
Co. are preparing to connect all of their
principal buildings at their depot at this
place, by an electric fire alarm signal with
their pump house at the foot of the hill,
near the bridge. The round house, which
is nearly one half mile west from the
pumping engine, will also be connected
with the alarm signal. Should a fire break
out in any ef these buildings the alarm is
immediately telegraphed to the engineer at
the pump house, who will force a stream of
water into the pipes to which the hydrants
are attached. There are five of these hy
drants located about the depot grounds,
and each one has connections for two lines
of hose, one connection being the same size
as the hose of the city fire department,
and the other a little smaller, to fit the
couplings of the hose recently purchased
by the company. The pumping engine is
large and very powerful one, and a stream
of water can be forced a long distance by

C. ' 'nson, one ef the
injure. . ter at this place,
died laa rnoon at the resi
dence ox h. lrn, where he has been
for the past six weeks. Uatil within the
last twb weeks there were strong indica
tions that he would soon recover from his
injuries, but he was severely attacked with
pneumonia, which was followed by cerebro
spinal meningitis, which resulted in his
death. A post mortem examination reveal
ed the fact that there was a double frac
ture of the hip and indenture of the spine.
The last named injury, even though he
otherwise recovered, would have made him
a cripple for life.
For some weeks after the accident Col.
Tomlinson would not permit his wife to
come to assist in taking care of him, say
ing that the attention which he received at
the hands of Mayor Hepburn's family,
was as good as he could have at home.
CoL Tomlinson was born in New York
city, Dec. 21st, 1825. Early in life he re
moved with his parents to Bridgeport, Ct.
In 1844 he removed to St. Louis, where
considerable portion of his life was spent.
He was at one time a partner of the well
known firm of Samuel C. Davis & Co, of
St. Louis, from which he retired on ac
count of ill health. Subsequently he went
into the banking business in the same city.
He was Deputy Provost Marshal during
1862-3, was President of the St. Andrews'
Society, three times, and was invested with
the Cross of the Legion of Honor in Au
gust, 1874, for services rendered during the
yellow fever plague of that year, in Mem

At four p. m. the remains were removed
to the L. S. & M. S. depot and placed on
the St. Louis express and taken to Bridge
port, Ct., in charge of members of the Ori
ental Commandery of Knights Templar.
It is expected that this delegation will be
joined in New York city by a delegation of
the Palestine Commandery of that city.

New Lyme, Feb. 13, 1877. ARCTIC.
Eds. Tel. Our community was thrown
into quite a ferment ef excitement, by an
assault upon a lad named Granville Loomis
by D. B. Walker, on Sunday afternoon,
Feb. 4th. The facts seem to be briefly
these: The lad had formerly been employ
ed by Mr. Walker, though not now in his
service, and on the day in question went
into Mr. Ws barn, and in the presence of
his children, took a handful of tobacco,
and left; Mr. W., not knowing he - had
taken it till he had got some little distance,
followed after and called to the lad to stop,
which request, or command as the case
may be was not complied with, and the
lad turned into Mr. Smith Walker's car
nage barn and bid the tobacco and denied
having it to Mr. W., who thereupon as
saulted him in a most brutal and savage
manner, inflicting serious injuries upon his
person, with the possibility of losing one of
his eyes. We understand Mr. Walker re
covered his tobacco, and afterwards follow
ed after the lad and offered to settle with
him. The offer was declined, and a suit
has been instituted against Mr. Walker for
personal damages. Xo one claims that the
boy did not take property that did not be
long to him, but the value taken was too
small to justify a resort to extreme meas
ures. All law abiding citizens regret the
occurrence, and will be satisfied with noth
ing short of a thorough investigation, and
will see that equal and exact justice is
Saybrook, Feb. 13, 1877.
Eds. Tel. As the small-pox is so preva
lent in Wayne at this time, perhaps the
least that you can learn from ns will be
the most acceptable. At this date the ter
rible disease is confined to three families
those of Mr. Lyman H. Fobes, Edward
Bladon and Frank Niles; at Mr. Fobes' 5
children are reported sick ; 1 at Mr. Bla
don's and 2 at Niles' where there is a large
family of small children exposed. The
family is the most destitute of any in town
owning no home, and are now living in
a small hay-barn belonging to Mr. S. A.
Babcock; the prospects of the family are
distressing, and they have the sympathy
of our people, although little can be done
toward caring for the them.

the water. It is soon .to be tested by the
weight and motion of one hundred and fifi

of street cars as well as teams of every de
