Work upon the large reservoir dam,
has progressed very fast during the
past six weeks. There are now 80 to 90
double teams of horses and over 300 men
employed. The Italian village on the
side hill is an interesting sight to visitors
with its numerous earth covered huts
and rude dwellings. Among the Italians
are many musicians, singers and a few
theatrical men and they pass their leis
ure time in having concerts, dancing and

together with as little fighting or un
pleasantness as there is here, as all seem
well disposed towards each other..

The Danbury Creamery" Co., having
done a successful business in Danbury
concluded to build a large and
complete factory in this quiet vil
lage, situated one mile west of the cen

S. Gorham, will have charge, it being
located on their father's property. The
creamery building is a two story frame
building, 26x50 feet, with 11 foot ceiling
and hard wood floors. It is strong and
neatly built in a workman like manner
by Eugene Adams, the mason work
being done by George A. Miller of Beth
el. An artesian well was bored by the
Westport hustler, E.N. Slipperly, which
affords an ample supply of water, which
by the use of engine, hot and cold water
is conveyed to all parts of the building
and used for washing churn, vats, cans
and all machinery. On the first floor as
one enters, the south door, he beholds a
gigantic boiler, furnishing power for
20-horse engine. After leaving the boil
er room, we come to the butter making
room where every thing is new, clea
and sweet. First stand two large vats
holding 300 gallons each fo: temperin
the milk and cream. A quartered oak
churn, of 250 gallon capacity, runs by
power: also the latest improved Ver
mont butter worker. A cooling room
near by, where one ton of ice can be put
at a time. A pipe is so constructed
case the cooler becomes musty, steam
can be turned into it and cleaned. A
improved separator and extractor makes
a complete machine. ou can either sep
aratethe cream or put in your whole mi
and it will come out butter all churred
The whole milk will be bought at this fac
tory, paying two cents in summer and
three cents in winter. It will be bought
by weight, two pounds and two ounces
making a quart, or 47 2-17 quarts to the
100 pounds. The creamery started. Fr

Arrangements are fast being com

the unveiling of the Barnum statue at
Seaside park. The statue is all comple
ted and the grounds nearly ready. Mr
Barnum's great granddaughter, Nancy
Barnum Leigh, will draw aside tne veil
thus giving the public a chance to look
again at the familliar face and form of
one whom every one was lond or, wno
was a welcome guest wherever he might
choose to go and known to almost every
human being in the whole world. It
will be ever a pleasure to not only this
city's people, but to strangers who. visit
here. One and all will be ever anxious
to see the great showman looking as
he dos, as natural and as peaceiui ana
with that calm expression of counten
ance for which he was noted during his
busy life. H. A. Bishop will be grand
marshal for that day. It is a wise
choice; young with fine business quali
fications, and thoughly competent with
his large military knowledge and ability,
there is no reason to doubt that any
thing necessary to make the day a suc
cess,, will be overlooked. Many out of
town companies and organizations have
accepted the invitations and many more
will come. A large grand stand will be
erected near the statue before which the
parade will pass. Already local decora
tors are receiving large orders for
elaborate decorations on private and
public buildings. Were the great show
man present in flesh instead of bronze
metal he would spare no expense and
take great delight in making it the
greatest day in Bridgeport's history.
