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

not flatter Mr Clark and he would stand
a good chance before a jury of securing
a verdict for libel.

Notwithstanding the wind and snow
banks on Thursday evening, over 100
gathered at H. B. 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

mental or blessed to your people, so I
pray God that He will endow you with
wisdom from on High so that by your
preaching and by every act of your life
you will be enabled to educate and guide
your people. I thank God for the unity
in which our people have taken hold of
the work, and God having sent you here
as our Under Shepherd, may He bless
you in all you do. To this end I welcome
you into the church and extend to you
the right hand of fellowship, welcoming
you not only into our church to share our
joys and sorrows with us, but into our
hearts and into our homes. May God
bless you and your dear wife." Pastor
Jones then very feelingly responded and
approaching his wife, reminded his peo
ple what a joy it was when he baptized
her into the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and the
joy he experienced in welcoming her into
the church. Then extending the right
hand to her with clasped hands, he very
touchingly invoked God's blessing to rest
upon their young lives and upon the unit
ed family of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then
he welcomed her into the fellowship of
the church, after which the Lord's Sup
per was administered and 30 members
partook of it. It was a blessed time,
long to be remembered by all.
