Everybody thought Baldwin & Stan dish's summer shoes were the finest ever shown in Bridgeport. Bat their fall shoes beat them. Their store is shining with a display of new styles in shoes that will be the admiration of all good dressers. F. E. Ilartwell fc Co., the Danbury clothiers, are all prepared for the fall trade with an unusually Hue line of clothing that they are going to dispose of to suit times. Give them a call while the assortment is unbroken. Courteous treatment is one of the principles of this house. Don't commit suicide on account of your "incurable" blood disease. The sensible thing for you to do is to take Ayer's sarsaparilla. If that fail?, why, then keep on trying, and it will not fail. The trouble is, people get discouraged too soon. "Try, try, try again." Wives and mothers, do not fail to read the large advertisement of the Ohio Chemical Co., in this issue. It mav be the means of saving your son or husband. If you wish to secure a certain and speedy result, when using Ayer's sarsa parilla, be careful in observing the rules of health, or the benefit may be retarded. A lair and persistent trial of this medi cine never fails, when the dilutions are followed. WARNES, Dentist, 420 Main St., BRIDGEPORT. INSERTS TEETH WITHOUT PLATES AND WITHOUT EXTRACTING.

It is thoroughly built of good material and workmanship, and it con tains first-class modern improvements, we opened up the furniture business at Haw leyville and it we now take advantage of this anniversary to eali attention to a lew faets oneerniiifi the business, we trust it will not ieK too strongly ot etrotiami. The severe ml adverse criticism called knit at the time by the tine stock ot Koods we put. in at this small, out ot-tlie way place is yen (resh iD our minds. We established a reputation far nd wide for heing a crank ot the first matrr.i- tude; and some wicked sinners anions the la ity used a word that sounded like damphool, which we presume meant something bail, but as we never ccuUl find the word or its mean iiitf in Webster we never laid it up against them. The people at that time did not fully ealize the many advantages ot Ilawleyville as a railroad center, r urniture is a bulky ar ticle ot merchandise, reiiuirinK an almost un limited amount of space tor t he ttorage and itable display ot a large stock. We bought and at u low figure right in front ol the ('niou lepot and erected on the siding a large and ommodious but not expensive building and ine which we inniK evervone to-day concedes s admirably adapted to the handling ot furni ture. Our main show room is one of the pret tiest in the state, not excepting the cit ies. We put. in a large and carefully selected stock at no sunt and nave been gradna v increasing and improving it in quality and design until we now have a stock that is attracting buyers n vuiage ami city aiiKe irom every part ot the state, not casual and accidental buyers, as they were at rirst, but those who come long listances for the express purpose of buying, ust oecause we nave a tine and tastv stock, a little out of the ordinary, to select from, and it prices below what the city dealer, strug gling under city expenses, can sell. Cars are unloaded directly into our ware oonis. We have no trucking to hire, either n receiving or sending out goods. Railroad tracks radiate from Ilawleyville in all direc tions. Our men attend personally to the load- ng of goods, and the re are but. few points with in ;o miles where we cannot send goods straight to destination without change of ears. itisk ot injury and breakage is therefore so slight that we guarantee sate delivery and pay an utiKUi. cuaiges. owning tne land and buildings, we have no exorbitant rents to pay. Taxes are extremely low. is o cartage and no extra handling and marring of furniture, our expenses, as anyone can see, are infinitesimally small as cotnpar- eu wiin ine city ways 01 uomg nusiness. iso similar concern of any size in the state can conform to circumstances or hard times and reduce expenses to the minimum as readily as we can. We pay all our bills promptly the day they tall due, and we mean to buy at the very bottom. Our stock is all new and fresh. not a back number in It. We do not, advertise to sell goods at cost or hall price, and never have to trump up any hocus pocus reason lor doing it. We are in the business to "buy and sell and get gain," but not at the sacrifice of reputation. We never advertised a low priced leader as bait to pave the way for the sale ol something else at a high price. We have no special bargains, they are all consistent one with nnot her and are marked to pay a living commission, but please take notice that some dealers would starve to death and fill a pau per.s grave on our livingcotnmissioii. We do not claim to be any smarter, shrewder, more honest, nor better than our fellow men and competitors, and do not claim to be endowed with any superior business methods, but we do claim most emphatically that we have many advantages ot location that are silently woi-King and counting steadily and faithfully in our favor as the months and years go by, even inougn inai location be awav oui in tne howling wilderness among the tall trees anil the frog ponds and pollywog hatcheries ot Ilawleyville. The above are no jokes; they are coin iacts presented tor the consideration or tnoiigiittul buyers. In conclusion we are willing now to acknowledge that our start here was, as many said, something of a ven. ture, hut we thought we could see our way clear to the building up of a successful busi ness, and now at the close of two years stead ily increasing patronage we know you will pardon us it we say in somewhat ot an exuf tant spirit that we now know we made no mis take and we can only look back to the two years that are past and the social and business connection and acquaintances we have made in city and country.tar and near.with a feeling or intense satisiacrion and pleasure, our cup 01 Happiness is luu.not simply from a pecum ary standpoint, but because our business re unions nave an been so very pleasant.

OS THE SHEPAUG The Shepaug railroad has enjoyed a heavy passenger traffic during the last season, the increase being very marked over the preceding year. A parlor ear has been run this year, which proved a successful venture. The freight busi ness has also increased. Those who are good judges predict that the summer business on the road is bound to steadily increase, every year. It is believed that this lovely and wild little valley is bound more and more to grow in popularity as a resort for city people. A good many extensive improvements have been made on the road during the last year. Three heavy trestle bridges have been replaced by more substantial structures, two or three miles of steel rails laid and numer ous small bridges replaced. These im provements have been earned and paid for, which shows that in the future, the road is to be a piece of good paying property. Horn, Sunday, the 15th, a son to Mr and Mrs Arthur D.

To secure it they lay before their patrons a most inviting line of goods m every department- They are goods, in every instance, that can be depended upon to be the latest in design and the most re liable in texture. It was a reporter's good fortune to-day to stroll through this magnificently ap pointed store. There was NO SIGN OK 1IAU1 TIMKS. On all sides, stocked to the ceiling, were goods of every description. Upon enter ing the tairheld avenue entrance tne first stock to attract attention is the dress goods department. In this part of the store the ladies like to loiter and in spect the tremendous array of dress fabrics. A tasteful arrangement of the goods at once announces the leading colors and combinations, as well as the different materials. The leading combi nations in dres3 goods this fall will be the black and white effects. These are in striped silks, as well as figures, and will be used extensively. There are also Deautuui ngurea cnangeaoie efi'ects which will hold a prominent posi tion in the fall dress. THESE KE- tCTS AUK IN' ALL colors, such as brown and green, blue and old rose, black aud green, black and brown and green, and erminene. lhe combinations in silks will figure conspic uously in trimmings of black goods and solid colors. In the black goods, satins seem to con tinue to lead, but bengalines, in plain and frosted grograin silks and l'eandesoies will be worn a great deal. The firm ex hibit for inspection a big line of the latest and most tasteful shades of silks, in bengalines, plain, brocaded, and Indian silks. In connection with these are shown a most elaborate line of vel vets for all trimmings, in all shades and combinations. The colored dress goods shown by the firm this year are better than ever. The designs are tasteful and full of harmony, while the colors are of the choicest. The firm have imported many French novelties in these goods that are very attractive, no two patterns being alike. These, like the blacks, will be made in combinations witn velvet and other trimmings. They are all of the newest weaves AND THE LATEST COLORS A lady after selecting a dress pattern should always Inspect the cloak depart ment on the second floor.

I KIIM i.l u M-K IAL IUII1.M-'M'I-M. UK INTRAMl RAL ELEVATED RAILROAD. This is an interesting feature of the make up of the fair. It is interesting, nstructive and restful to the sight st-er. It does not extend entirely around the White City, but the passenger vho goes its entire length obtains a good view of all the great buildings, at least a birds- eye view. Some make it six and a quar ter miles in length, but four miles is near er the truth. We will begin with the northern loop, which is near the Govern ment building, and on the side of it to wards Lake Michigan. It runs outside of most of the buildings, that is of the xposition proper, tstarting from the northern loop at the southeast corner of the Government building, it runs to the northeast extremity ot the grounds, passing just to the right oi me CONNECTICUT BUILDINC and to the left of the Iowa. which is situ ated on the lake front. Near the Con necticut building is a station. It curves toward the west and runs parallel with Fifty-sixth street until it reaches the northwest corner of Jackson l'ark, and with a curve winds around to, and runs parallel with, Stoney Island avenue, af fording a hne view or. tne woman s building and Horticulural hall and after passing Becital hall, leaves the avenue, turning within and passes over the an nex of the Transforation building, past the Terminal railroad, bending a little to the west, going around and quite near the annex of Machinery hall when it bends directly eastward until it passes the Colonnade and then it makes a long detour to the southeast, making a graceful curve at the Forestry building. running on a ngnt line Dy ine forestry aud Leather exhibit and makes its south ern loop near the building containing Kitcrr's BIG GUN. There are numerous stopping places along the route. This road was built by the Columbian intramural railroad com pany at a total cost of $700,000, includ ing power, house, rolling stock, ana everv thing ready lor operation, ine trains on it consist of four cars each, capable of a maximum speed of 30 miles an hour, lhe entire trip from one end of the ground to the other can be made in 21 minutes. To those who have not visited the White City, we would say, it is an electric road, but not the trolley system of wires and appendages over bead. Nothing is to be seen, except oc casionally sparks intermitted from the track. It Is very carefully guarded. JSO one is allowed on the track. It is said that if a person should so stand on the track as to make a circuit between two rails, it would be instant death.. The fare is 10 cents for the trip one way or any part of it, and 23 per cent ot the gross receipts go to the exposition. It is in COXSTAXT OPERATION and the revenue to the fair must be large in the aggregate. Its value in overcom ing distance cannot be easily estimated. Supposing a person or a group of persons have been visiting the Forestry or Con vent of Santa Maria de la Kabida and wish to go the art building in northern part of the grounds instead of a long tedious walk, they can take, right at hand, the Intramural railway train, and soon they are in the vicinity of the place desired,' and again suppose there is a company of Connecticut people at the Connecticut house, who wUh to visit the stockyard. It is more than a mile away. Here is a station of the Intramural rail way. - In- five or six or eight minutes they have enjoyed a charming ride, one both rotful and exhilarating, and are but a f-w rods from the srrct j id. Hurra! tor the Intramural. Kev A. Gardner, Warren, Conn.
