A couple of our amateur cyclers, with more ambition than discretion, laid out a CO mile pln the other Sunday, on their wheels, over our Connecticut hills, to Call on their best girls, and get the hang of their "bikes." Like the owl and the pussy cat, they returned "by the light of the moon," aud got home after mid nlffht. but we did not see them exercis ing their bicycles any the next day. HERE'S A SUGGESTION. Numerous lake dwelling parties are een wending their way over the "Itos iter drive" to Steep ltock, and not In frequently they return through our em bryo "Lenox of Connecticut," making a fine drive over good roads. Now if some public spirited lndivldual,like Faroum of New Haven, who built the finest drive in Connecticut, If not in the country, to the top of West Uock, would Immortalize their names by building some -such drive to the top of the l'Innacle, they would win the everlasting gratitude of Ightseers from all over the country. THE CHILDREN THANK HIM. A. S. Baldwin of Riverside cottage, evidently has not forgotten that he was once a boy himself, with a vivid recol lection of the pleasures of a good swing, for he purchased a new strong rope and had a fine awing put up on Mr Foulois' mammoth elm, to a limb nearly 30 feet high, which ha been generously patron ized by the children of the neighborhood, and sparingly by girls fiom the Vacation home. One of the favorite methods of utilizing it Is to climb up a ladder set against the side of the tree, putting one foot Into the rope, grasping the rope firmly with the hands, and with a spring winging far out over the river bank. As there Is a spice of danger about It, It seems to be enjoyed about equally with the boys and the girls. Another method is to swing In a circle, wlt,h pushers sta tioned on the outer circle to keep them going. This certainly gives variety of motion and exercise of muscle. .

"Oh yes," he eays,4'lts all on account of the drought." Some fishermen, who had not had any luck, thinking to guy him a little, asked hltn about the fishing and the kind of bait he used. , He an wered them politely, that he sometimes used worms,sometimes bloomers or min now. Then they asked bow the large butterflies wonld do for bait. "Well, he said, "he did not know, he bad never tried them, but he would recommend that they nr"st try humming birds. Humming birds wiggled around lively In the water and attracted the attention of the fish. He felt sure If they would bait their hooks with humming bird?, they would catch a fine string of suckers."

The character and life of the above named individual deserves more than the brief mention it received in last week's Bee, deserves more even than we feel within our capacity to bestow at this time. His life has been in experience a long one, passed entirely in this vicinity. Born of most worthy parents, Benjamin and Mary Wadsworth Carter, in Warren, August 1, 1819, he remained in that town engaged in farming, and at one time, mercantile life, until April, 1870, when he was constrained by fair business pros pects to remove with his family to Ter ry vllle, where he conducted, with the most valued assistance of his estimable wife, a hotel for six years. Then, per ceiving a good opportunity to dispose of his hostelry interests there, he did so, and finding a vacancy here in the same line of business, he came toL ake Wara- mang and located at the house which had. previously been conducted by Isaac Smith, but vacated, at Cheerie Point. The friends of Mr and Mrs Carter in Terry vllle and many other places seemed to follow them here in patronage. No lake or summer hotel in the state seemed to have a greater popularity", for years, than the Cheerie Point house, under the management of Mr and Mrs Carter. They studied to please and succeeded, in dumber of guests and financial benefit to themselves. Scarcely any hotel has ev er been run on so conscientious, orderly and with such hiw abiding principles as this noted summer resort. Under no consideration could Mr Carter bo tempt ed to violate law or order, and the secret of success there seems to have been just this close adherance to principle and faithfulness and desire on the part of Mr and Mrs Carter to cater to the de sires and good taste of their guests, who were always of a most respect able order, for no rowdyism or dissipa tion would be allowed about the hostel ry. He continued there in charge and proprietorship for about 10 years, till be and his wife felt that the strain on their energies was becoming almost too much for their declining years, and with the popularity the hotel had gained, he found no trouble in disposing of it for a valuable consideration, and then erected for himself and family, a cottage on the same point nearby the hotel. Here he thought to live more quietly aud in ac cordance with his advancing ag?, but many of his former patrons could not let him so remain. They found their way to the cottage and many were the din ners again prepared by Mrs Carter for excursionists from miles around. Par ties numbering from 20 to 50 found their way there frequently in summer and the house was filled for weeks with board ers. An addition became necessary to his barn to accommodate teams and Mr Carter found his patronage so much more than the capacity of the cottage, that he was influenced to erect another and larg er cottage close by, and for several sum mers both houses were well filled with guests. He continued in business till about a year ago, when he felt with his wife that he must retire from active work, being also prevailed upon by his children to dispose of his interest in the same. His son, John A. Carter of Gene va, Ohio, who Is agent and one of the di rectors of theJEagle Lock Co., at Terry- ville, Conn., became the purchaser of the cottages and has since sold one to Mrs O. J. Winans, late of Newark, N. J. The other has been occupied by himself and family, this season. So Mr and Mrs Carter finally severed their business con connection with Lake Waramaug and went for a time to live with Mr and Mrs Perkins, their children, at Terryville. But Mr Carter did not seem quite eon tented without a roof of his own over him. Watching his opportunity, he se cured of E. Galvin of New Milford the large two story house, formerly occupied , by Mr Galvin when here, and moved in as early this year as the place could be conveniently vacated, and at once com menced plans and contracts with proper parties for thoroughly repairing and al tering the same to his taste and conven ience as a residence and home. A double veranda was put around the south and west sides of the same, doorways cut and all finished and painted in such taste as to become one of the most desirable and convenient houses in the center of the village. Before the vesanda was finish ed, Mr Carter was stricken down with what was very near, if not quite, a para lytic stroke. He was forcibly reminded that his Etay on earth might be limited, but he was privileged to live to see his plans carried out regarding the house, and seemed up to the last week of his life to enjoy the benefits of the same. At last, surrounded by his children, John A. Carter, Mrs Perking, and Mr and Mrs F. G. Kelley of Conneaut, O., and hi3 faithful wife, he closed his eyes in death on the morning of August 21, having seemingly known all up to the hour of his decease, but unable for some time to coherently converse with them very much. We believe Mr Carter . never sought or really desired ostentatiously, public notice or office, but in every town in which he lived through life he was called nearly every year to nu some po sition of trust and influence and always performed his part faithfully and well. In 1807 he entered Rising Sun lodge, F. fc A. M., at Washington, as an accepted candidate for its rights and privileges, ana on August 2J, oi mat year za years to the day previous to his burial), he was declared by its W. M., to be a worthy and just M. M., entitling him to all the benefits oi tne order, borne time previ ous to his death he expressed a desire to his wife that when it came he might be buried by the brethren of the lodge which had his high""; respect, and as long as he was able, his presence at its communications. His wishes in this re spect were fully carried out, and 40 ; or more members of the lodge circled about his grave with the sorrowing family, at the cemetery in Warren bti Wednesday afternoon of last week. Solemnly and impressively was the Masonic burial rit ual read by past Master Guy C. Ford of Romford, a most esteemed veteran of the order and lodge. After the casket had been lowered in the grave by six of the bretheren, slowly they passed around the grave and dropped the emblematical sprig oi evergreen tnerein, on the apron never to be worn again. Quietly they stepped forward, one by one, and took the shovel and lei. fall three shovels full each of earth on the oak bos containing the casket, and then in like procession as they entered, they retired from the yard, leaving the form, cold and silent, to await the great resurrection, but feeling in heart assured that "The spirit had re turned to God who gave it." f So has closed the life of one who has been for more than three-score years and 10, a true friend, a good neighbor, a worthy citizen, a kind husband and loving fath er durimr his earthlv soiourn with us Most just and of sound integrity, eschew ing evil, and repulsing the same when necessary, he has left an example for all who knew him to emulate and adopt, and a blessed heritage to his family, more valuable than much riches or great worldly prosperity. Would that we could write as truthfully of all, who hav ing passed the years of their pilgrimage here, are called to that undiscovered country, from whence no traveler re turns.. BRIDGEWATER. RESULTS OF THE BLOW. Last Thursday's storm blew a large locust tree over on to the roof of Arza Morris' house. It was no small job to get it safely down, several men working at it. Trees were brought to the ground in several places and corn and apples, as well as tobacco, su tiered from the gale. AT THE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. As St Mark's was closed, last Sunday, a goodly number .worshipped at the Congregational church and listened to an able discourse by Rev Mr Doane, his subject being, "The need of faith in the world" and the text from Mark 11,22, "Have faith in God." The chapel was also well filled in the evening. The Y. P. S. C. E. meeting was led by S. P. Treat, the topic being "Continual wit nessing." This was followed by a hymn writer eei vice, in which a printed pro gram was followed. Dr Watts was the hj'nin-vi it'-r under considers! ion.

WOODBURY. THE HENRY H. PECK FUND. Henry H. Peck, an aged and reputable citizen of this town, died some two years ago, leaving a will. The will was pro bated without objection, and no appeal was taken. After one month no appeal could be taken. That matter was there after forever at rest. One provision of the will created a fun,' of about $26,000, in trust, for the benefit of the highways and paupers of the town, forever. He left two sons. John I. and Frank B. The income of one half of this fund was giv en to his son, John, during his lifetime The income of the other half was given to said Frank B., during his lifetime One half of the body of the fund was given to the town at the death of the sons, respectively.- John has died and the first $13,000 of said fund is now in the hands ' of the town. The ;' second $13,000 awaits the death of Frank B., when it will also go to the town,. and so complete the fund in trust for the bene fit of the poor and the roads, forever. It Is a Carefully drawn will. . The income does not go into,and become mixed with, the other monies of the town, but it is to be kept by Itself, "the one half thereof to be applied for the direct purpose of keeping the highways within the limits of said town in good repair, and the- otn er half thereof to be applied by said town for the necessary support and care of its paupers within said town.',' The surviv ing son, not feeling exactly satisfied with the fund provision of his father's will, took the statutory course, to have a spe cial town meeting called, to see whether the town would accept the fund given in the will, for if the town refused to ac cept the gift in the will, by another pro vision of the will, the whole fund would revert to the heirs-at-law of Henry H Peck, which sole heir said Frank B. Peck is. The meeting was duly warned and held, last Saturdav. when the lar gest meeting of voters,estimated at three fourths of the whole number in town, since those held during the Civil war, as sembled to consider this matter. A sim pie resolution to accept the provisions of the will was offered by William Cpthren, and speeches in its favor were made by him and by Messrs Huntington, Skelley and Dr G. H. 4twood. Judge George TT. Cowell of Waterburv. as counsel of Frank B. Peck, was heard in opposition Bv unanimous consent of the meeting, on motion of Mr Cothren, Messrs D.C.Som era and R. C. Partree also spoke on the same side. During the-discussion, Mr Peck laid in a bond for $15,000,signed by himself as principal, and Charles Mun- son as surety, proposing to pay the town $12,500 if it would refuse to accept the will. It was with this proposition be fore the meeting that the vote was tak en, and the provisions of the will accepts AT HAND In a dangerous emergency, AVer's Chkbrv 1'ectoral is prompt to act aud sure to cure.': A dose taken on the first symptoms of Croup or Bronchitis, checks further prog ress of these complaints. It softens the phlegm, soothes the inflamed membrane, and Induces sleep. As a remedy for colds, coughs, loss of voice, la grippe, pneumonia, aud.even consumption, in Its early stages, AYER'S Cherry Pectoral excels all similar preparations. It Is en dorsed by leading physicians, is agreeable to the taste, does not Interfere with digestion, and needs to be taken usually in small doses. ?'From repeated tests In my own family, Ayer's Cherry Pectoral lias proved itself a very efficient remedy for colds, coughs, and the various disorders of the throat and lu rigs." A. W. Bartlett, Fittsfleld, N. H. For the last 25 years I have been taking Ayer's Cherry Pectoral for lung troubles, and am assured that its use has Saved Wly Life I have recommended It to hundreds." I find -the most effective way of taking this medi cine is in small and frequent doses." T. M. Matthews, P. M., Sherman, Ohio. , "My wife suffered from a cold; nothing helped her but Ayer's gherry Pectoral which effected a cure." R. Amero, Flym;ton, N. 8. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral Prepared by Dr. J. O. Ayer & Co., Lowell, taut. Prompt to act, sure to curs ed by an overwhelming majority. As the town already had $13,000 in hand, John being dead, with the certainty of $13,000 more on the decease of Frank B. Peck (which we hope will be many long years hence), the voters could not see the wisdom of giving him $500 out of what it . already had in hand, together with the other half of the fund, which would be its own at his decease. But if the negative vote had prevailed,Mr Peck would have taken the whole fund for $12,500, or perhaps, worse yet for the town, he might have taken the "whole lot" for nothing, because the town had refused to accept the provisions of the will. The vote was submitted to the vot ers in the most favorable shape for Mr Peck. M0BRIS- "GUSTY VTIXDS" ABROAD. The storm of Thursday was of un usual severity. The wind blew tremen dously, even for these breezy heights. The trees were denuded of fruit and leaves, and many twig3 and larger branches were twisted off. But the rain came, the blessed rain ! It came in lorur a white slanting lines,"searching out every crevice m roof and clapboard, filling cisterns and brooks, and in manv in stances even the wells were filled nearly to the top. One can now use a big basin of water to wash ones face without feel ing wasteful or extravagant. A RISE IN pork. During the Thursday's gale one of the neighbors took advantage of a tempora ry lull, to carry a pail of the amalgama tion known as swill, to the barnvard. As he reached the pig-pen door, a fierce tornado-like blast came upon him, whizz ing the door from its binges, throwing him and the swill-pail into the pen and taking the pig with a rotary motion up ward about seven feet and depositing him among the timbers overhead. Our neighbor didn't say how the pig got down, but we think he balanced himself with the skill of a tight-rope dancer un til a return breeze took him earthward again. In proof of his statement our neighbor is ready to show the pen and the pig and we are sure the double twist in the pigs tail caused by the rotary mo tion will convince even the most skepti- I - 81 - Tnis story will clas3 well with the pan oi snaKes ana the nine-inch mons ter related in The Bee a few weeks ago THIS, THAT, AND THE OTHER.
