The seventh annual game dinner of th Newtown Social Hunting Club at tin Grand Central hotel on Monday night was a success in every way, and Senator Houlihan was felicitated on every side for his ability as a host and entertainer The attendance was larger than a year ago about 10 sitting down to the banquet. The tables were arranged in the form of a horseshoe, so that the banqueters look ed each other in the face. The menu, as usual, was a splendid success, and for two hours, the people at the tables gave it their close attention. 1111: mkni: WAS AS l-'Ol.LOWS : .SOl'l'. (.'onsoiiiiiie.

FKUIT, Oranges, Grapes, Apples, Mixed Nuts, Tea, Cotlee, At about 11 o"clock, Co) Stevenson of Bridgeport, the vice president of the club, arose and set the speech-making ball a-rolling. Ilia fund of wit was ef fervescent, as ever, and he kept the ban queters in a continuous roar of laughter. In opening Col Stevenson said briefly: There are a great many distinguished men here to-night, men you are proud to meet and men you are anxious to hear There are distinguished men here from New Haven county, Fairfield county and I don't know but what Easton Center is represented. County Commissioner Key nolds of New Haven was first introduced Among other things he said were : I trust I 6hall have the pleasure of meeting with you on future occasions. The New Ha ven county commissioners are endeavor ing to be FAIR AND HONORABLE with the people of the county.. He spoke of their intention of doing the right thing in dealing with the liquor dealers. He hoped he should be able to meet with them another year. The veteran news paper man, Alexander Troup, was re ceived with applause as he arose to speak He paid a handsome compliment to Col Stevenson in opening. Said he : I desire to say to you in all seriousness, that we all admire the colonel. When in charge of the Shore Line divisioo, again on the New York division and when on the Housatonic, he displayed great, ability I believe it would be advantageous to the New England, if he could be placed at the head of that road. We are here to night, not with the same feeling as in '92. We find, (notwithstanding what was accomplished in '92,) there has been a set-back. The attention of the people has been drawn to the cause. Some peo ple said it was the advent of the demo cratic party COMING IN POWER. Well now my friends, with the exception of the silver bill, the laws now on the statute books are the same as under the previous administration. I Say the blame rests with neither party. We are in a land full to the brim, with fine crops, di versified manufactures, etc The leaders of the party have strayed away from the old purposes. Without the aid of the republicans there wasn't enough votes in Congress to repeal the silver purchase law. Now my friends the trouble with the democrats is that they have drifted away from the principles of Jefferson and Jackson. 7 believe that the men who do the work ought to get the positions. In closing he said : Now I want to say to you, that there is nothing I so enjoy as coming to this town. I KNOW OF NO BETTER LANDLORD than the man who keeps this hotel. You have honored him as town clerk, repre sentative, senator and county commis sioner, and when he retires from office yon will say, "Well done, good and faith ful servant." When Mr Stevenson arose to introduce the next speaker, Mr Troup arose and proposed three cheers for Mr Stevenson, thenext governor of Connec ticut, which were giten with a will. Mr Mahan of New London, next introduc ed, expressed his pleasure at being pres ent. "I have this to say," said he, "speaking of the gubernatorial question, if Fairfield county wants the nomination and Mr Stevenson is selected, no county will roll up so large a majority as New London. It is about time the young men took hold. I an! tired of working for old fossils for governor." Lawyer Morau of New Haven, the next speaker, expressed his pride at being a member of the hunting club. Said he, "The men who have got the get up and get that Stevenson has will make a success." Lawyer CTHara of Bridgeport was intro duced as ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST legal lights of Fairfield county. Among other things Mr O'Hara said were : It has always been a pleasure to visit this town since I first set foot in it in 1882. Look over this broad land and see the hundreds of men out of work. Neither the success or defeat of either party has been responsible for it. The party that placed the existing laws on the statute books is indirectly responsible for it. The victory of '92 demonstrated the fact the people didn't believe in the idt a of gov ernmental paternalism. I have always been an admirer of Col Stevenson. He has always been genial and wide awake. If he desiies the honor of the democratic nomination for governor, it would be my purpose to assist him. County Commis sioner Rowland, who was next on the list, spoke but a word, paying a compli ment to the repast and expressing his pleasure at being present. County Com missioner Mead also spoke in the same vein. Mr Stevenson next called up the host, SENATOR HOULIHAN, who expressed his pleasure at entertain ing so distinguished a company of gen tlemeu. He closed by thanking all for their presence. F. W. Wheeler of Mon roe was next called to his feet. "I be lieve that best sentiment of the county lias been represented here. The vote you received, Col Stevenson, at the last con vention, was more than complimentary. The result o the present state of things is the result of extravagance for the last :'A) years. Give the democratic party a chance before you condemn it. In clos ing be expressed his thanks to the host and hostess for the fine entertainment. Col Stevenson wound up the speech-making. What is the cause of the present depression in business? You will go all over Connecticut, and you will find that business depression has affected manu factures. The real trouble in the coun try is that the manufacturers do not un derstand and are afraid of the legislation that may be placed on the statute books. Don't let anything come into America that can be manufactured here, except the raw material, let that come in by the ship load. Among the other speakers were Col Tracey of New York, C.

Rodgers of the Congregational church attended the meeting of the Fairfield East Conso ciation at Bridgeport on Monday, No vember 27. The business that brought the consociation together was the request of the pastor of the West End Congrega tional church of Bridgeport, Rev George F. Prentiss, that his resignation be ac cepted by his church and society. Mr Prentiss gave as his chief motive for this step, the fact that he had suffered much from throat trouble in Bridgeport and had found it absolutely necessary that he move to some drier climate. After presentation of the church's action In unanimously accepting the resignation by its delegate, the consociation agreed to dismiss Mr Prentiss from the pastor? ate. " Mr Prentiss has accepted a call to the Congregational church of Winsted, of which Rev Henry N. Kinney was for merly pastor. EEV HE JAMES TO SPEAK. Rev Joseph H. James, secretary of the Connecticut Temperance Union, will speak on temperance work, in the Con- gregatlonal church) Saturday afternoon of this week, December 2, at 4 o'clock. He comes to Newtown especially to give some hints for work to the Loyal Tem perance Legion, an organization of the young people, but he has been asked to make his talk of application to all, and will undoubtedly do so.

When earth haa tribute paid, Anl groaning bins and ladened mows, The truit of Held and bending boughs, Provisions well have made. A time lor rest and thankfulness, When, turning to the home, The scattered flocks from lar and near, To taste the good Thanksgiving cheer, With laugh and frolic come. But on this gladsome, iestal day, One home all joyless stood, Within Its halls no joyful chime, No children laugh, and run and climb, Or play Red Riding Hood. Seven years had passed, since Farmer Brown With hot aud angiy word, Had thrusthis son forth from his door, Had cursed him, called him knave and boor His heart with passion stirred. Ah! shadows 'cross the threshold tall, When love from hearthstone flies, For life grows bitter, days are long, The sigh is frequent, rare the song, II love grows cold and dies. 'Tis trifles, light and thin as air. Which sorrows bring, or joy ; The son had made a foolish jest, The lather scorned a slight request, He swore "he'd train that boy." And so with angry word and hot They parted, sire and son, The lad went forth to seek for bread, The household thought of him as dead ; The house seemed drear and lone. On this, the seventh Thanksgiving day, llusbaud and wile sat down Alone to taste the harvest cheer, (But on the mother's cheek a tear), The husband wore a lrown. The table groaned with goodly things; Turkey and chicken pie Were flanked by sauces, fruit and cake, And fixings for the stomach's sake Iu great sufficiency. And they two at the feast alone; The husband bowed his head, And in the set and formal word, His usual stilted prayer was heard, In blessing on the bread. But ere he raised his knite to carve, A gentle tap was heard Upon the well bound outer door, The mother hastes across the floor, Her heart by faint hopes stirred. And as the door swings open wide There stands a little maid, Bright, rosy, cunning, two years old, Earth's rosebud, some day to unfold, And these the words she said : "Is oo my gamma, gamma B won. My pa and ma and me, We wants to spend Fanksgivin' here, I corned a little first, lor fear P'r'aps you away might be. I wants to kiss my gam pa dear, Sit 'side him in a chair, An eat, an eat, an eat, an eat, Ot pie, and plums and chicken meat, An' have him smooth my hair. My pa he's in the choo choo house, We corned here cn the car, Say, can he come back home to-day? Don't send your little girl away ! We corned from awlul far." Ah, baby fingers smooth out scars, Made by old Father Time. And when the little voices plead For peace and love, he's hard indeed Whose deaf to their sweet chime. The grandpa caught the little maid. He hugged her o'er and o'er, And somehow tears were on his cheek, While love grew warm and hatred weak And anger was no more. Again they gather 'round the board, Five now, instead of two, And as the father bowed his head, These were the thankful words he said Over the feast anew : Lord God.we thank thee that we see Thisdear, dear son again, Bless hini and his, our lood we pray, And keep us loving day by day, For Jesus sake, Amen. Rev Charles H. Smith, Harllord, Ct. In Fairfield County. GREENFIELD HILL- TWO HORSES DIE. Ilezekiah B. Ogden's faithful horse Top8y,died last Thursday,-after two days illness with that dread disease, cereoro spinal meningitis. His mate is also sick with the same disease. Dr Prophett of Bridgeport attended them at first, but suffering with a broken ankle he was obliged to send a substitute, a veterinary from Norwalk. They both gave as their opinion that this one would soon follow in Topsy's footsteps. It will be a great loss for Mr Ogden and he has the 'sym pathy of all his friends and neighbors. Mrs Allen Jennings and Miss , Georgia Banks spent Sunday in the Farms. Frank Banks drives a new horse, a re cent purchase. Mrs H. B. Ogden has been a guest of Mrs Fred Wildman. Henry Banks has purchased a car load of New York manure. Mrs Arthur Hull has visited her sister- in-law, Mrs Frank Edwards. DEERFIELD. Miss Abbv D.

Tayer and Solomon Davis Speak to Victims of These Terrible Diseases. E. P. Tayer, one of the most influen tial citizens of East Nassau, New York, says, "I wish it were possible for me to speak personally with every rheumatic victim, for I would tell them of mv terri ble experience and of the relief and cureJ I found in the use or a simple remedy. wneninrsi saw in tne newspapers, "Rheumatism can be cured," I was loath to believe it, but when I found that the statement was made by Dr David Kenne dy of Rondout, New York, I inquired in to it, ana upon nis auvice I began to use what is known tne world oyer as Dr Dav id Kennedy's Favorite Reraedv. My condition at that time, seemed to my friends and myself as boneless, for I had suffered for 15 years with inflamma tory rheumatism. My physician said 1 would likely be a cripple for life, but it certainly was not ordained that way, for I had not used Favorite Kemedy long, before I was convinced that it was the right medicine, and in a short time I was cured. That was three years ago and I have not felt a trace of the disease since." Solomon Davis of North Kortright, N. Y., suffered awfully from neuralgia and insomnia (sleeplessness), as is the case frequently with elderly people, and in speaking to the writer ot the great comfort in being freed from the constant pain or neuralgia, sain, "I have found that Dr Kennedy's Favorite Remedy re lieved the bowels, improved the circula tion of the blood, and the old pain left me altogether, and 1 feel as hale and hearty now as ever." ravorite liemedy dissolves the excess of uric acid in the blood, cures sciatica, lumbago, pains in the legs, arms or any part of the body and relieves stift' or swollen joints. As one of Newtown's physiciaus re cently said : "There is no reason iu suf fering with rheumatism or neuralgia, for Dr Kennedy's Favorite Remedy will cure them."
