'V ' Danbury, is IIAWLEYVILLE ? Perhaps, gentle lender, you do not know where Ilawleyville is. No.' Well, it's your own tanlt, for she is right where she always has been, anil has never tried to Skulk nor hide herself. Ilawleyville is built on one of the oldest and ripest sections ot land in North America. It is built on what is known as made land, so is a ponion ot Chicago, the only difference being that Chicago land has mostof it been made du-ing the last decade, is a change from the original plan and is made from banana peels, broken-down hoop skirts, cigar stumps, corks, and street sweepings in general. What the Ilawleyville land was or iginally made trom is a question that has puz zled, mystitled and paralyzed the minds ot theological and geological students and deep thinkers in general for ages, but unlike the Chicago land, it seems to be an iudisputed fact that it was made during the same week and irom the same material that the celebrated and seemingly indestructible great Kocky mountain ranges were, and this land has been slowly maturing and settling down to bed rock and a solid basis tor thousands of years, so when we speak ol Ilawleyville, we always refer to her solid and stable foundations, and not to the temporary destructible structures erected from time ta time above them. Just think whuha transpired in the world around since the foundations c Ilawleyville were laid, bhe ante-dates me J'yramius ol Rgypt and the great Chinese wall, Pompeii and iler eulaneuin, the rise of Baker's Furniture Husi ness and the tall ot the Koman empire, ISel shazzar's feast and the hand writing on the wall, the birth ol Columbus and the first Con necticut river shad, would be comparatively fresh entries in her diary, as would also the lite and death struggles of Lydla Pinkhain and Julius Ca-sar. It she could speak she would mention as but the happenings of yesterday the liood and the wanton destruction ol En glish ta in ISoston harbor. She could have given Adam and Eve valuable pointers on wnat 1 know aoout tne early days ot sue- eesslul gardening," and could point to the time when the running of railroad trains was even more detrimental to the interests or the traveling public than is the present schedule on the Berkshire Division. The noble red men of the torest shot down the bison and the bear, built their council flres and signal mokes, jerked their venison and roasted the pain faced captive on these same grounds, and the smoke irom hundreds ot tepees curled heavenward from among her stately forest trees. The great frog and tadpole pond north ot Ilawleyville was undoubtedly the half-way supply station on tne main trail ueiween me fertile clam banks of Long Island sound and the great muskrat hatcheries of the North. When the foundations ot Ilawleyville were laid, Mark Anthony had never heard of Cleo patra, and George Washington had never been called upon to choose between a lie and a wol- lopmg, aim so on aii-innnitum. w e claim ior Hawievvnie an aiuniuity deserving ot public acknowledgement an I recognition. That she will become tamous some day is beyond question. The two great and growing indus tries 01 tne place now are Bauer's iurniture business and the equally successful pollywog hatcheries in the great north frog pouds. Baker's furniture establishment is now so well known Irom one side of the state to the oth er that it needs no mention, but the pollywog hatcheries are really wonderful, rney are located near the Shepaug ear shops and em brace some three acres of land and water and niuskrat-biiilt islands. The nutritious quali ties of the water, its temperature, the altitude and everything else here at Ilawleyville seems to be just right tor the successful birth and propagation ot pollywogs. The layers are wonderfully productive, and we venture to say that one lull grown native layer can, when she teeis line it, lay eggs enougn in one night to almost stop navigation in any slug gish or tidewater stream ol onfy a lew fath oms' debth, and we can produce pollywogs enough in one good warm July week to stock iainy wen every river, irrigating aitcn ana laguna in the great state of Texas. We will tell you more of Hawley ville anon, but we are too busy to write olten. Call and see us when you visit ilawleyville. A. G.

SIGNS OF SPRING. WHITTEN FOB THE BKE. Ye who long to see old Winter 1'ack his trunk aud buy his tickets, Should you ask concerning spring time, And it3 certain signs of coming, I would answer, 1 would teU you Signs are on that never lail us. Storms are raging every whither, Storms peculiar to the spring time With storm centers in each household. Wives have pulled out all the windows, Letting in the cutting east wind, The promoter ol discomfort. Old clothes on the line are swinging. Dangling in the chilling breez s Kugs and mats and ancient carpets, Quilts and spreads and unnamed garments. On the outer wall are waving. White, aud red, and blue, and yellow, Made in strange and weird devices Like the flags ol many nations. Wives look wild and husbands wilder, Casting glances this and that way With great fear and sad fortjodings, As they dodge the svraylng broomstick And the house-maid's flashing dust brush. And the flying pans and kettles, Bushing as it spirits moved them. Boots and shoes, and twanging coni hods, Last year's hats and ancient "bonnets," Trunks and boxes, bags and grip-sacks Ornament the back veranda; Hassocks, wash-stands, dining tables. Easy chairs, settees and couches, Baby carriages and rockers, rictures, brie a-brac, and mottoes Mottoes "Peace to this Household," "Home, Sweet Home," "God be your Help er" Legless stoves, and rusty stovepipe. Shovels, pokers, tongs and glassware, Husband's cuspidores, (wives' horror) Dressing bureaus. Queen Ann bedsteads. Satin gowns and cotton dresses. Seal skin sacks with old sun bonnets. All in fine artistic grouping, Or mixed up most picturesquely In a wild-entangled medley, Grace the stoop, the lawn and door yard. And perchance, in doubting dodging. Husbands, picking out their fool-steps, Step upon a tre.tcU'rous soap cake. Slip and strike against the cook stove. Which deflects them towards the wood box. Dodging which they sit tbem splashing, ' In a steaming, sudsy washlub Standing loaned In mid-kitchen. With appealing eyes protruding, And appealing legs and elbows Flashing mid tlie flying water, Coming out red-mad and dripping. Fulling at their clinging trowsers, Rubbing wheie the suds embraced them, While dense dust and choking ashes Save them from profane expression. And the wife firm in commanding In these scenes of wild commotion Seems determined and grows bolder. Nay, delighted, like the storm-bird Wblch is happiest and screan shrillest When th8 winds and waves if;e wildest. All house-cleanings have ij' nooning," As all tempests have a lulling Good wives then bring oiv hold victuals. Husbands lunch on tain Sett over,) Standing in some vacant Or sit on a ragged fragmi arner, it From their tempest-smlt Ln household And there gnaw their ies in silence. While the wile and i "piece it." Husbauds now for; - sousing And all mishaps of t lining. As the happy meal pr tses, And good wives o'erloo Lrt-comings. Dinners always warm. dinners Soften down the chafing 8? These then are the signs ol Ving-time Ot which I am tain to tell yo Look ye well and sharp abourwra While the cleansing cyclone ragfes. Be discreet, and mostly silent Let it rage, but keep from under Lest a flying missle hits you, Fierce storms clear the air ot vapors And the lurking germs of sickness, Ever seeking for destruction. . Cyclones thus have useful functions. God is always good in sunshine or in shower. Bringing good Irom seeming evil, every hour. And gives man in pressing need sustaining . power, Guidir g where the storms rage wildest As when winds and skies are mildest. . And when busy wives are mildly scolding As they whack at rug or carpet, liaising a domestic racket, -Turning new domestic leaves and pages, God some grace or blessing is unfolding, Unseen or in plain beholding, While the wives' redemptive cleansing rages Good has grown from Beeming evil through . all ages. If his Eve, his charmer Madam The first man-extracted daughter . Leads at times through soap and water, Tis a blessing to her brave, undaunted Adam. When the erstwhile fearful storm is folly over And yonr wife has conquered and bro't order Within all the old domestic border, And yonr nesting place renewed in sweetest clover; And you feel the atmosphere is bracing. And your footsteps to your rest you'r ing; When yon feel your fears have all subsided And the cleansing storm you have abided, Aud new lite appears to be commencing Under spring's new styles and regulations, Kiss your wife congratulations, (Lacking wife go kiss your mother, Or your sister but no other,) Thank her, thank her kindly tor the healthful cleansing. Such-kind recognitions never do escape her; She feels much repaid tor carpet shakings And for painful, sharp rheumatic achlnga. And you just you use the door mat or the - - acraper. fH. E.

Hammertown, so called we think when "Ferris & Sharp" hammered out the mowing scythes for the farmers in "all the,country 'roun," was stirred to its very depths, last Saturday night, by the musicale at George Osborn's. Willis Sherman and wife from New Haven, II. E. Bradley and wife from Shiloh, F.. W. Wheeler and son, with numerous others, enjoyed the rapture which the delighful charms of music and dancing always did and always will bring to man ! Bass viol, three violinists, Miss Annie Osborn's or gan, and "Himalaya Sherman's" harmon ica waked up the family "in the other part" arid forbid sleep until "5 o'clock in the morning.'' Willis Sherman, son of Charles Sherman, plays classical music. It is a pleasure to write well of one of Shiloh's boys who has done so well for himself and as an example to other young men. A SUCCESSFUL DASCE. One of the most eniovable events of the season was the hop given by the Ked Rose social club at the Town hall, Fri day evening, May ID. A very pleasant company was in attendance, including visitors from Hawleyville, Bethel and Danbury. The committee of arrange ments, consisting of P. H. McCarthy. J. A. Donovan, James Brown and J. M. Cox, received many compliments for the able manner in which they conducted the affair. Each of the members wore a but ton hole bouquet of red roses. Good music was furnished by Davis' band of Kedding and dancing was indulged in un til a late hour. William Beebe, who has fired on the Shepaug passenger for some time, is now braking on Conductor Owen Meehan's train on the New England.
