So backward a season has not been known In a long time, for everything except grass and winter grain. The latter nev er looked greener, and cattle can in many Instances get their sustenance without a bite of hay.

The president of Gate's college, Ne braska, llev II. K. Warren, spent a few hours in Washington, last week. He stopped oft' from the down train in the morning to see Mr Turner, not knowing that he had left Washington. He drop ped In at A. S. Baldwin's to make some Inquiries, who, finding him a stranger, stranded him for some hours, took oc casion to get a team and show him some of the beauties of our einbrio ''Lennox of Connecticut," and to Introduce him to some of our leading citizens. He ex pressed himself as highly pleased, but regretted that more of the surplus mon ey, spent so lavishly, could not be used for the higher education of the youth of the land, that came to him in such little driblets. It was probably a natural feel ing as the average total cost of a student in their college, including board and everything is less than $125 a year, so that a little money with them goes a great ways, and he could hardly help thinking how much good some of the extra thousands spent in adornment would do in education. But It is the same the world over. He stopped for dinner at Frank Woodruff's and was ad vised to attend the Cape-Church nup tials, at the Episcopal church and wit ness the departure of the bride-elect from the Cape of Good Hope, to launch out once more on the broad ocean of connubial bliss. May she have a pros perous voyage over the sea of life and at last exchange the church militant for the bosom of the church triumphant A somewhat aggravating incident in connection with the wedding occurred with a young lady who had ordered a dress, from Worth s, to grace the occa sion (we suppose), which arrived at the Washington depot in good time, but was or rlooked or left there by the messen ger who carries packages on to the Green till an hour or two after the wedding. We don't know know exactly what kind of expletives young ladies use under very great provocation, but this certain ly was an occasion that justified a very vigorous use of the king's English. How ever, as she got a ring also, it ought to partially make amends for the disap pointment. B. Mlsj May Brown has returned to Stamford. Dr and Mrs Van Dyke of New York were at A. G. Baker's, one night, last week. The Poquasset met at Henry Church's, last week. A. T. Compton was in New York, last week.

DEATH OK MISS F.I.SIE HERMAN. It seems ns though we had written more obituaries from this place during the present year than ever before in the same lergth of time. Although a partic ular matter as well as sad, we consider it a painful dutyv this week, to record the decease of another who a native of this place. By her life work and duty, was called three years ago to New Haven and died there on Tuesday of this week. Miss KIsie Beeinau was the only daughter of Mr and Mrs Oscar E. Beeman of this place and among 10 grandchildren, she was the only granddaughter of the late Charles Cogswell of the village. She re. ceived a good common education and when arrived at maturity chose stenog raphy as her chief occupation, learning the art at F. II. Cogswell's school for stenography in New Haven. After per fecting herself sulllciently in this line of educatiou, she found wprk in Bridgeport and New Haven and for the last three years as mentioned, she has been near ly all the time at work in New Haven. Several weeks ago she felt obliged, on account of ill health, to come home, which f he at tributed to overwork. About two weeks ago she deemed it necessary to return to New Haven for a short time for medical attendance. As soon as she reached New Haven she seemed to grow worse and on Friday evening of last week a telegram arrived here for her mother to come at once to Elsie's bedside in the city. Mrs Beeman accordingly went down on Saturday morning's train and found her daughter then past all hope of recovery. As a result of a consultation of doctors it was decided that acute Bright's disease had strongly developed with Mtes Elsie and the result was a question of time only, which proved to be short, as slit: died on Tuesday morn ing of this week, aged about 23 year". Her mother returned here on Tuesday evening and the funeral was held at her late home here on Thursday afternoon at o'clock. The interment followed in the cemetery here. So ends the earthly ife of one whose hopes were bright, and future seemingly most pleasant only a few days ago. We have been told that she was looking forward joyously to the time in the near future when she intend ed to be united in marriage to Cyrus M- Tones of New Haven. Her many friends most deeply S3'tnpathi.e with Mr and Mrs Beeman and all other near relatives in this sudden and great bereavement. She has long been the idol of her parents and the sad .event comes with almost crush. ing c fleet upon them especially. MARBLEDALE- AN IMPOHTANT MKKT1NO.
