Wednesday was one of autumn's fairest days and surely no more fitting day could have been chosen for a wedding. This was the appointed day that Miss Lila F., daughter of A. B. Mallett, was to be united in the holy bend of matri mony to Frank II. Beach of Bridgeport. The ceremony took place at 3 in the af ternoon at the home of the bride s father, Rev G. II. Smith tieing the nup tial knot in an impressive manner. The parlor, in which the ceremony took place, was beautifully trimmed with wild flowers and autumn leaves, and the bridal couple stood before a large bank of autumn leaves and ferns while the ceremony was performed. The bride was becomingly attired in a dress of mauve Lansdowne, trimmed with white lace and wore white gloves, while the groom wore tne coventionai suit ot black and white gloves. The maids of honor were Miss Bessie, sister of the bride, and her cousin, Miss Tillie Bene dict of Riegefield. After the ceremony and the usual congratulations a bounti ful collation was served with ice cream and fruit for desert. Some time was then spent in social chat, during which time all present inscribed their names as witnesses in a handsome gift book. The bride then donned her traveling suit of navy blue ladies cloth and the happy couple, amid pouring showers of rice, and with their carriage gaily decorated with old shoes, left for New Milford, where they took the G.22 train for Bridgeport. Several friends accompanied the party to New Milford to see them off on the train. The preb" ents were numerous and valuable. Among them was a haudsome gold and silver piano lamp from the Sunday school teacher and class of which the bride wa3 a member. Mr and Mrs Beach will make their future home in Bridgeport. The bride will be greatly missed in this place, especially by the young people, but we feel that the song bird that leaves us at the summer's close, perchance she has gone to seek a more congenial clime and shine in higher and wider circles. Our best wishes for the happiness and success of the young couple follow them. Among the guests from out of town at the wed ding were the parents of the groom, Mr and Luman Beach of Bridgeport, Misses Ida Jackson and Grace Merwin and A. Hamlin of Danbury, Mr and Mrs William Hamlin of Lanesville, Mrs Andrew Ben edict and daughter, Tillie, of Ridgefield, Miss Fannie Warner of New Milford, and Misses Fannie and Amelia Thorn hill of Brookfield. SOME BRIDGEWATER STORIES. Your Roxbury correspondent does very well on the eel question, but the eel was too small and should not have been picked quite so early. We had the pleasure of bagging two, which together weighed eight pounds and five ounces, the larger one four and one half pounds, and the smaller three pounds and 13 ounces. The larger one was 45 1-2 iaches in length and nearly 11 inches in circumference. Next! Enclosed please find a sample of our snake crop ! Don't send another oce.J WATERT0WN.

We are glad to hear that the sewer spoken of in these columns a few weeks ago, is likely to be built, everybody, or al most everybody, falling in with the idea. As usual there are some who do not see the need of it, but probably the day will come when they, too, may be glad to use it, which we have no doubt they will be permitted to do by paying well for it. The time to help is when help is needed. We hope every one will have enough vil lage pride to take hold now and not wait until their help is not needed. Jared Ingersoll still continues very ill. ROXBURY. AT THE FALLS. Down at the Falls, Jay Tyrrell is tending to all the cider apples that comehis way in a press of his own get up.

The shingle mill has been vsy this fall and he has already cut np over 100,000 shingles. The prospects are for a busy season at the saw mill, as there are many who have already spoken for the sawing of their timber. Four eels were recently caught at the Falls that weighed 18 pounds. The eels are said to be larger than usual, this season. Who can beat this?

Don't wait if you want to buy good stock at cheap prices, reader. We give below some of the advantages of buying birds in the fall. Here they are: The breeder has a larger stock on hand from which to select. He has more birds than he can accommodate and will "thin out" at a sacrifice. As business is dull at this season, he can do a better part for you. If he is compelled to keep his stock over until spring he will add the extra expense, and if eggs are in demand he will not sell at all. In the spring the yards are made up and the breeder will not break his mating?, nena and pul lets of any breed are seldom to be had in the spring. By buying young birds now you may get the best, as the best birds cannot be well selected until they are matured. Cockerels are in excess now, you cannot appoint a better time than tne present to secure one. D. T. II. P0ST0FFICE GUIDE. MAILS CLOSE. GOING sooth : 8.38 a. m. !M " a. m.
