In the New York World of last Sun day was published a picture of a former Newtowner, Herbert S. Clark of Meri- den. Mr Clark was one of a committee that had charge of a grand ball in that city. We must say that the picture does not flatter Mr Clark and he would stand a good chance before a jury of securing a verdict for libel. amongst her many friends.

Banks' to the barn warming. Mr Banks had left nothing undone that would add to the pleasure and enjoyment of the company. As the night advanced the wind subsided and at the time of going home there was a calm which was enjoyed and appreciated by the merry crowd. Mr Banks' two par ties have been enjoyed exceedingly by the middle aged as well as the young and they wish there were more new barns and more generous hearted men like H. B. Banks in old Greenfield. H. N. Ayres, the Bridgeport shoe deal er, has decided to leave the settlement of the strike now existing at his store be tween good goods and no profits to the ar bitration of the people. It does seem though, he said, as if there was something to be said on both sides, for when you come to sell a man's $0.50 French calf, hand sewed, cork sole shoe for $4 it must hurt the profit's feelings, or a lady's $4 shoe for $2.89, or $3 kid button for $2. On the other hand the goods declare that they have a right to be sold and if profits stand in their way they propose to annihi late them. That's why they are offering so many goods below cost. If you want a heavy shoe for a child look at those Mr Ayres offers for 43 cents. Number 381 Main street or 7 Bishop Block. F.
