One Day Last Week we saw a t in' of uiipowder standing right in trout of thi! depot lit Hawley villi; anil we Uionglit what it a thunder shower should hap pen to come up and lightning fdiould happen to strike, that oar and it should happen to strike it right in the middle so that it tiurnt both ways at the same time, it would very likely tear the depot all to pieces before the ear could be shunted in on the siding anil then we'd have a brand new one built, and in that ease we should undoubtedly have a big meet ing at Hawleyvibe ot all the prominent rail road men connected iwith the Consolidated, the N". Y. ,t N. K., the llierkshire division, the I. X., the Fictliel branch and the S., L. & X. railroads, ami we would adjourn to the banks ot the "Little Jordan'' and have a clam roast with champagne sauce, a la pollywog, anil af ter dinner we'd have toasls ami speech mak ing un Mr Clark would sit on Mr Mel.eod'H knee and they'd sing old college songs and drink Mrs Winslow's isootliing syrup, and tell how they used to go to school in the same lit tle red school house, and roast chestnuts ovei the same lire, and would remind eacli other how much better it is for "brethren to dwell together in peace and unity," ami mutual tears ol repentance, would Iroll down and make a record on Mr McLflod's immaculate shirt front, and then they'd smoke the pipe ot peace and till it up "Hot only seven times, but seventy times seven," and iet by gones be by goTies and agree to join hands in building a Hue, large union depot and vie with each oth er in each striving to pay more than his share, and the new depot would have both a ladies' and a gent's waiting room and a stove with a real tire in it, and they'd have toilet rooms, and light, pleasant tr jight oflices, and a cana ry bird and a parrot liung in the ladies' wait ing room, and the whole tiling would bo cov ered Willi fresh paint all over the outside and they'd do everything to make it real home like and pleasant, and while they were in this frame ot mind and lnll ot smoke and syrup and gootl thoughts, Baker would step across ami suggest a more I friendly interchange ol freight rates, so thatilurniture could be trans ferred from one road to the other .vithout breaking the ten commandments, and perhaps suggest a comparison and revision of passen ger time-taliles and connections. This latter, however, would work untold injury to Baker, as now everybody expects along wait at Haw leyville and they go prepared to pass away the time buying tuiniture. We thought what a wonderful change tor the better all this would make, but coihe to look around there wasn't a thunder cloud in sight. We had in our vest pocket a box of these patent sweed safety matches, hut Inever having had occa sion before to fire oft a ear of gunpowder we didn't know just how to do it, not even witli a safety match, and wje telt a little afraid, al though when a resident of Colorado we used to hunt witli and occasionally tire off a Sharp's buffalo gun, which, we take it, amounts to about the same thing so far as general near- ny results are concerned, but we nave grown timid since then anil we let the opportunity and the car pass, so, dear friends, you will have to put up withlthe old depot a while lon ger. It makes no difference to us personally, we are only kicking on treneral mincinles. just because others (lo and because we like to go with the popular1 crowd, we can sell just as much furniture with the old depot in front ot us with its one dingy waiting room, tint it you don't like it you must step across and kill time, while waitingjtor trains, in our waiting and reading room, where you will find the daily papers, illustrated weeklies, magazines, writing materials, etc , etc., all of which you are invited to make free use of, or if you don't care to read you cait sit in a nice, comforta ble easy chair in our front window and "see the wheels go round."

Dampen a piece of flannel with Cham berlain's Pain Balm and bind it over the seat of pain. It is better than any plas ter. When the lungs are sore such an application on the chest and another on the back, between the shoulder blades, will often prevent pneumonia. There is nothing so good for a lame back or a pain in the side. A sore throat can near ly always be cured in one night by ap plying a flannel bandage dampened with Pain Balm. 00c bottles- for sale by E. F. ilawley, Newtown, and S. C. Bull, San dy Hook.

Owing to the bad condition of the race track, the field day of the Newtown Academy, advertised to take place Wed nesday afternoon, November l.",was post poned until the following afternoon, Thursday, the ICth, at 3 p. m. In spite of the bleak weather, a large number were out to applaud the contestants. The following is a list of the contests, the winners and records made : Two-hundred-yard dash, 1st class, I'.radley C. Rodgers; time 25 seconds. Leap frog, James Betts. Two hundred-yard dash, second class, llo- bart G. Warner; time, 30 seconds. Running long jump, 1st class, Henry Moore; distance, It teet. Standing long jump, Richard Reilly; dis tance, 8 teet.

The splendid all-round work put up by Henry Moore was a fea ture of the afternoon. His pole-vaultin was especially good, no one else coming within a foot of him. The jumping in the second class was also very good in deed and the general verdict was that the afternoon exercises were a success. MARBLED ALE- AT THE ASPETCCK CREAMERY. The Aspetuck creamery has had a pros perous season. The present output var ies from 1 100 to 1COO pounds per week. The president and general manager of the creamery is Virgil Hatch ot New Preston Hill, and much of the success of the creamery is due to his energy.

It is a rectangular 1CS7x7S7 feet, with a ground area of nearly 31 acres, and with the galleries -i t acres. It is more than seven-eights of a mile around it and there is one-half mile of promenade on the roof, reached by an elevator, 210 feet high. The Old Coliseum at Rome seated 80,000 people. This is four times larger than the Coliseum. The entire buildiDg will seat 300,000 persons. There are 7,000,000 feet of lumber in the floors, and it required live car loads of nails to fasten this '215 car loads of lum ber to the joists. To grow the AMOUNT OF LUMBER would require 1100 acres Michigan pine land. The iron and steel in the roof would build two Brooklyn bridges, and there are 1400 tons more of metal in it than in the great St Louis bridge. In the sky-lights are 11 acres of glass, 40 car loads. The roof is only 11 feet lower than Bunker Hill monument, six feet lower than the spire of Grace church Broadway, New York. Its ground plan is more than twice the size of the great pyramid of Cheops in Egypt, and six games of baseball might be played at one time on this floor, and ample room be afforded to all players. It is the World's architectural wonder, though of gigantic size, it is severely simple, its lines of architecture are chaste and beau tiful. The editor of the Review of Re views, in AX ADDRESS L CHICAGO, V just on the eve of the closing of the Fair, pled with all the eloquence he could command, for this and other noted build ings of the Fair to be allowed to remain, but it will not be heeded, on account of the great expense. It is said that It would cost at least $23,000 a year to simply keep the buildings in order. We simply say in closing, that this building is said to be the largest roofed building that was ever erected by man, and is an astounding wonder in its architectural construction. The view from the root is unsurpassed. We ascended in the Hale elevator twice, and were no better satisfied with the last, than the first view. It is quite unsatisfactory to talk about it. There is SO MUCH OF GRANDEUR, that we would grasp, and feed upon, bat alas ! human limitation presents itself at every point, and says, seek and be satis fied, be not rash nor presumptuous. Consider it undesireably grand, and turn away from it. This we were compelled to do, and so with reference to our read ers, who bave never seen It. We are obliged to break off in the middle. Be thankful for a little, this is the lay to get more. Rev A. Gardner, Warren, Ct. - " ' - - Ca&'auur Leads to Consamptioa. Kemp's Balsam stops I be cough at once. .
