OF Mrs, 3. ) r.FAIR HAYEN. esterday was a pretty bad day wn the harbor and there was not .ery much oyster dredging. At about the time that the McWilliams line lost seven barges the dredge Luzerne Lud ington was down on the oyster beds.

The ..u..i. rt-iiaja waa lu uclyi; uccn .sciii. down the harbor, but a valve gave out and this prevented making the trip. vv hen the steam tug James McWil liams' danger signal blew yesterday morning the whistle was heard clear up to Fair Haven, and several re marked that some boat was in trouble. s told in another column of this pa- r, seven boats were lost off the West akwater, and the captain of one ,'sat, Captain Scribner, and his wife frere lost. The captain of the tug, Avho is well known in Fair Haven, did all in his power to aid in saving the people ou ine uarges, anu 11 jh siaieu that had Captain Scribner taken his wife to the largest boat, as the cap tain told him to do, both would have been saved. This tug has brought in many boats for Fair Haven coal deal ers. Had the usual number of Fair Haven dredge boats been at work some of them would doubtless have Christmas Turkeys, THEY ARRIVE TO-DAY.

Yesterday was a day of busy prep aration for Christmas, notwithstand ing that the weather was about as bad as could have been. The cars were crowded, especially in the afternoon and evening, and the storm did not seem to make much difference in the tide setting toward the center of the city. Despite the fact that the Fair Haven people have been trading now for several days, there were a large number of people who had to make another trip to the big stores to com plete late Christmas purchasing. It was one of the best days imaginable to contract the grip, and doubtless, a whole lot of people in this part of the city laid the foundations of one ,of these severe grip colds. But no mat ter what the weather was, blow high or blow low, the Christmas trading had to be attended to. Station A felt the tide of business yesterday, and the genial superintend ent, Mr. Mulvey, didn't have time to say Jack Robinson. When asked about the Christmas business he re plied: "I haven't any time to talk." And no one doubted It, for he was surrounded by a pile of Christmas packages higher than his head. Mr. Mulvey and all his assistants were working like beavers, and it was ap parent that it was their busy day.
