Secretary Morton bad a lultcrlioud, when at homo in Nebraska, wUlcli consisted of a tree Htumllng on a lawn. Above tbo design was the motto, "Plant Trees." tiood advice, short ami to tbo point. The New York World lias been paying Its compliments to our state penitentiary at Wetlivrsncltl, dubbing It "The black bole ot Connecticut." The walls of the cells are said to exude unhealthy dampness, and the moft brutal treutuicnt ot prisoners, resulting In a number ol cases In death, Is charged. Tho charges are almost too brutal to be believed end the Legislature does well to investigate the The constitution aiid by-laws of the Brook field vlllugo Improvement association, print cd elsewhere, 'may well serve as a model lor other villages contemplating tho satno move Head It over. In 1NM4 tho city ol St Louis passed an ordl nauce charging telegraph and telephone com pan lex 3 a year for each pole eroded In the streets, and the United States supreme court has sustained tho validity of tho ordinance. The court held that the ordinance was not a license tax, but was in the nature ol ground rent, which the city had a right to demand and receive lor the use ot the space occupied by tho poles. It will bring St Louis 7,545 a year. Tho operation ol the bill proposing to make Htorrs a eollego and give it the lund approprl ated by Congress for tho agriculture and mo- chanio arts, which Yale has been having, is about this: If it passes, and Yale makes a contest, and the contest is decided in Yale's lavor, then the state shall pay to Tale the amount claimed. That Is, Storrs keeps the money anyhow, and the state makes up to Yale what it has lost, Tho farmers are pret ty smart. This Is tho Watorbury American' view. But Just tho same, Storrs should have tho money. The city dallies can always be counted on to array themselves against th tanner, but what good friends they are to the poor, abused tanner in tbolr weekly editions, which circulate In the rural sections! Good schools and good roads are evidences of the highest civilization. We have the first. Let us have both. It Is said that 14,000 people in Ilarttord have signed the pledge of total abstinence. As Itartiord paper remarks, "If one hall or one quarter the signers ol the pledge hold firmly to their word, It will Indeed be a blessing ot great magnitude. It will restore tho light to many a dark aud dismal home." We would like to see a total abstinence wave strike Fair Held county. Blackbirds make merry in thetroe-tops.and the son shines with a warmer glow; evlden ees that the time ol "bud and bloom" Is near at hand. " Give ns free delivery, or give us good roads so that we may get our mail dally," are the sentiments ot the farmers living away from the centers. The wealthy South Congregational flock of Bridgeport were given a surprise on Sunday In the resignation ot their pastor, Rev Dr G 8. McNellle, the letter being read by a visiting pastor. It Dr McNellle persists in his resig nation, It will be a great loss to the church and to Bridgeport. He is by all odds the ablest pulp't orator among the Protestant clergy in Connecticut to-day, and bis people appreciate tills fact. In tact, there are few men ot his ability and power in the pulpit, in the coun try at large. Possessing an imposing person al appearance, his use ot the King's Englisti being noted (or Its eloquence and beauty, and being a man of much personal magnetism, it's no wonder that he is popular. He is supposed to be independently wealthy, and has been somewhat noted tor his independence ol thought and action, which has naturally alienated some leaders In his congregation. The resignation was accepted at a chnrcb mooting, tield on Wednesday night. Will It be Oklahoma over again ? The num ber of people assembled on the border of the "Cherokee strip" waiting for the opening ol the land to settlement is upwards ot 50,000. It is practically certain that the Cherokee coun cil will accept the terms offered by Congress tor the rights ol the Cherokee nation in the land, and then the rush of the boomers and speculators to take possession will shortly be gin. - All accounts are to the effect that the ' land about to be opened is far more fertile and valuable than that of Oklahoma. The "strip" or "outlet" Is 60 miles wide by 210 mlleu long, and is a perfect rectangle In shape. Some 30,000 quarter sections will be open to seizure by the army of boomers as sembled on the border, and it is said that a very large proportion ot these are of the finest farming land. Unless the would-be settlers are given possession In timefor plant ing the crops great suffering must ensue, as most of them are already reduced to sore straits, and have no means of living out an- J other winter. It you want to bay or sell a farm, cattle or homes, there is no better medium to adver tise In than Tu Bkr. A gentleman who re cently advertised a farm had three customers Inside ot a week.
