THE NEW COMMERCIAL ASSOCIATION ORGANIZED TO PROMOTE THE BUSI NESS INTERESTS OF TUE HATTING CITV. The following interesting article from The Weekly Record of New Haven, con cerning a former Newtowner, Dr W. C. Wile, will be read with great interest by his friends in this section. Dr Wile oc cupies a position as a leader in the medi cal and business circles of Danbury. Danbury has just passed through one of the worst periods of business depres sion the city has ever experienced, and it has stood the ordeal well. There have been no failures of any magnitude during the entire period, are far from being des pondent, the enterprising citizens are looking on the bright side and are ready to push ahead with renewed vigor. Danbury has one disadvantage iu her dependanee on one main industry. Hat ting is the barometer which gauges the activity or depression in business all through the city, and the general dull times all over the country, coupled with special depression in the hatting business and a local lock-out, combined to strike an extremely hard blow to Danbury. Iut Danbury came out on top, as she always does, and circumstances are all favorable for an early return of good times as soon as the outside causes which North Avenue, Corner 'Wood Avenue, -AGENTS FOR- COLUMBIA, STEARNS, LEAGUE, HICKORY, HARTFORD, CRESCENT, Every Wheel Fully Guaranteed from Tire to Handle Bar.

The following communication recently appeared in the Jiew Haven jueaaer Dear Sir: I noticed not long ago m your paper the account given of liiver- side institute, ueroy, uonn. ; its ueauu f ul situation, surroundings, etc., and the treatment afforded there for the victims of morphine, alcohol, etc. '. The writer, who was then under treatment for the former disease, and recently recovered. can say that all your correspondent wrote in rezard both to the place and methods of treatment are fully justified. The remedies known as the Bellinger German remedies are used and will, I be lieve, do as much as remedies can for the deliverance of those held captives in that most helpless, hopeless bondage, result ing from the continued use oi arug poi sons. Their treatment for drink appears, so far as the writer knows, successful al so to a degree not less than other reme dies longer-known. . Iam aware that many people look upon the victim of morphine as a moral leper and speak of bis Ioolish "haDit.'.' ii naDic were ever the proper name for it, it soon becomes a terrible disease, sure to work out sooner or later, not only its deplorable work on body, mind and soul, but lead to a fatal termination. The effects of the drug especially on the nervous system is to make it an- utter wreck, and it is so peculiar in its manner of working there is little to compare it with.
