Tenney of New York. The Sun has this to say of Mr Tenney : "The candies of to-day of the first class, the products of the masters of the con fectioners' art, seem the acme of perfec tion in sweetness. People who visited the candy show and have admired the beautiful display made by A. M. Tenney and sampled his confections, say they are as good as any candies made in New York, aud are equal to the finest bon bons manufactured in Europe. The es tablishment of Mr Tenney is at 10 and 12 10th avenue. His facilities for making tine candies could not be improved upon. The A. M. Tenney Candies are put up in handsome boxes and when a lady receives a package of his delicious bonbons or chocolates she is sure to think kindly of the donor. Mr Tenney'a name is as fa miliar to the fashionable ladies of New York as Worth's, the Parisian tnan dress maker. In- most of the swell confection ery stores of the city Tenney's bonbons are on sale, and those dealers who do not keep his candies are themselves manu facturers, and operate retail stores to sell their own goods. In Chicago, Boston, Washington, San Francisco, and other large cities, Tenney's candies are sold in all first class stores."

In offering the use of Sargent to the breed ing public tor the above low tee for 1394, we do so with the knowledge that times are bad, nnd money scarce, but we do not expect to af ter this year for any such money. We also venture to assert mat it win be impossible to find another horse in Connecticut that is from such a great sire as Alcantara, out of a dam in the great brood mare list, that will rank with mm as a trotter, ana in iorm.ior several times the fee we ask. Sargent obtained his record in the fall ot 1393, after a sea.-on of many acci dents and difficulties to overcome, and is therefore nothing like his limit. We expect him to obtain a record in 1894 ot at least 2.20. E. B. MARSH & SON, NEW MILF0BD, CONN. OTEAL Yes, a steel roof that is better than O shingles.
