Ic is only of late years that rheumatism
has been treated as a blood disease.
But that this is a correct theory is proved
by the extraordinary success attending
the use of Ayer's sarsaparilla, in this
painful and very prevalent malady. It
seldom fails of radical cure.
W. W. Walker of 500 Main, street,
Bridgeport, has on hand,and is constant

do well to call, look over their stock and

town people who have traded with them.
In fact they have a nice trade all over

ly feel proud of it as their reputation has
been honestly earned by making reliable

fair and polite, no matter whether they
wish to purchase small or large amounts

THE MUSICAL CLU3.
The musical club was favored with a
program of unusual excellence at tue
regular meeting on Monday night, at the
gathering with the Misses Ella and Jen
nie Fairchild in Taunton district. A 'bus
from the Grand Central conveyed part
of the party from the Street. An origi
nal verse sketch on the history of the
club, by Miss Hattie Northrop, elicited
much applause. Mrs Arthur D. Fair-
child also recited effectively. The auto
harp solos by Miss Iloyt and the duet by
Mrs A. P. Smith and A. J. Smith, were
especially enjoyed. The program as a
whole deserved praise, and was by all
odds one of the best the club has had.
The next meeting will be held on June 12
with Miss Addie Fairchild and Mrs Ar

li. D. Hawlej', the Hartford seedsman,
whose name is familiar to every far
mer in New England and New Xoik
state, died in Hartford week before last.
He was a native of Ha wley ville. He was
born in the house where Amos Hawley
now lives, near the four corners, not far
irom tnetsricK sciiool nouse. He was
the son oi the late Tvrus Hawlev. A
orocner, aiarsnan ilawley, live3 in
Bethel. Another brother, Burr Ilawley,
and a sister, Mis3 Carrie Ilawley, reside
in Hartford. Mr Ilawley had been in
failing health for a long time, and whol
ly unaoie io attend to business tor some
months, his disease being an affection of
the liver, complicated perhaps with.some
other disorders. . From this he seemed to
rally at times with a fair prospect of re'
covery, but those hopes proved delusive.
He went to Hartford and 37 years ago,
engaging in the hardware business with
J. W.'Royce, whose daughter he married
ana to wnose Dusines3 ne succeeded in
ISOO.since which time he has been active
ly identified with the mercantile interests
of the city, developing business capacity
of the first order and building up a very
large, widely extended and profitable
trade, even in tnese days ot low prices
and sharp competition. Two or three
years ago Messrs S. F. Cad well and W.
F. Jones, who had been long with him;
became partners in the firm and have of
late carried its entire burden. " '
As a man, -Mr Ilawley, when in the
fullness of health,was an unusually gen
ial companion, the life of any group of
whic h he was a pat, an admirable story
teller , with a happy chpaeity of throw
ing aside the cares of business when
business hours were over, returning to
his work, fresh, keener, and more alert
for the change.
He had a hobby, and unusual one for
a man of bis stamp. It was the violin
and he owned certainly one of the choic
est collections in the country, including
some instruments of the most famous
manufacture of past centuries, whose val
ue ran up into the thousands. His keen
est enjoyment was to meet a man fully
competent to appreciate these treasures,
and such an one held the key to his most
intimate friendship.

DEVOTED TO P.EE RAISING.
II. n. Knapp, one of the thrifty farm
ers of this place, i3 extensively engaged
in bee culture. He has IS swarms at
present and takes much pleasure in
watching the large amount of business
they do in a season. Mr Knapp strives
to keep the Italian bees, but says it is
almost impossible to keep them clear as
they cross with the black bee. He uses
the "Simplicity" hive, and being an in
genious man has arranged many little
contrivances of his own to be used about
the hives. He raises for hi3 bees, the
Alsike clover and was the first man to in
troduce it into the town. He thinks 50
pounds about a fair average for a season's
work for one swarm of bees. Mr Knapp
finds no difficulty in keeping his bees
during the swarming period as he use the
Alley queen trap. Ever' year he exhib
its at the Daubury fair and last year took
first prize. He and his grandson togeth
er won $28 in prizes on their bees last
year at the fair.

"The greatest show on earth'' left it3
Winter Quarters about six week3 ago, to

ter a few weeks there to start on the

went near the lion's cage; in an instant
he threw out his paw catching the man's

nearly out of breath. Dr McLellan se
cured an ax and crashed his skull in.
That settled his fate. Then came the
worst of all, the lion. Dr McLellan ap
proached the cage which contained this
king of beasts, who was roaring so he
could be
HEARD FOR NEARLY A MILE.
He fired two shots at his head. Both took
effect. But the lion seemed better than
ever and wilder. " At this point the chief
took a hand. He fired one shot at his
heart with no effect. The next one pene
trated the animal's eye and he rolled over
dead. Chief Rylanda has a good record
in the city in regard to handling crim
inals, but in regard to wild animals he
must certainly take a back seat. Mon
day, Superintendent Middlebrook had Dr J
McLellan on hand again, and by the use 1
of poison and a repeating rifle two more
vicious and ugly dogs were put to death.
; Dr McLellan on Monday received a tel
egram from e friend of his connected
with the state militia inviting him to take
part in their spring target practice. - He
considered it a good joke.
