Who will not say 'Amen," to the sen timent so admirably expressed by Senator llawley in an address at a fl ig raising at Trinity College, recently: I Hill run that ours is the bet form of (government and the best government the world has known. The ablest men of the old world pruixe the Constitution a the noblest work of the human intel lect. As time passes ami it ix tested in foreseen and unforeseen emergencies, thn winder grows that the fathers did so marvel, usly provlile for all iiecessir.HM and datmer. While c have an iron rule, wtyet have full play for legiti mate freedom. In the beginning it was not doubted by foreign cities that, a dem ocratic form of government would be accompanied by violent tumults, dissen sions, ll net n i Mod-, anil reconstructions.

At any rate he fell off of the wagou seat under the horses feet, it looked for a moment, as if he would be stamped on aud the horses would run. Some good saaiaritaus near-by sprang to the horse' heads and ho crawled out of his uncomfortable quarters unhurt, for which be should be profoundly thank ful.

A notice is potted at the creamery offering to test cows or herds for individ uals at a nominal prlca by the use of the Babcock machine. The results of these tests may be depended upon as positive. There is no guess work about tbe Bab cock machine, it shows definitely how much butter a cow is giving, and enables the owner of a poor cow to detect her at once and dispose of her. On the con trary If a cow Is a good one the machine tells how good she is. Many an owner of cows fondly imagines they are all good until surprised by the story of the Babcock test. There is no sense in keeping any but fcthe richest milkers these hard times, unless you are making milk for the unthinking or helpless masses of the cities who usually pay the same for milk, whether it be good or poor. The time is not far distant how ever when miltt peddlers will be com pelled to sell milk rich in fats or go out of business, for it is rapidly coming to be understood that milk deficient in but ter fats Is deficient also In caseine and other nutritious properties, so that the less fat, the more water is the rule, whether the water be put there by the cow or her owner. The caseine will about equal the fats In neraly all sam ples of milk. This widely acknow ledged truth shows the importance of having cows that produce quality, and the man who weeds out hla poor cows is the sensible man, for he alone will be the money making man of the future. ' THE L'NIOX SUNDAY SCHOOL. The Union Sunday school at Stepney Depot recently elected officers-as fol lows: Superintendent, Hollister, Sage; Assistant superintendent, Mrs Wesley Edwards ; secretary and treasurer, Mrs George Turner; organist Mrs Sage. The school is improving In both num bers aud Interest and its friends mean it shall accomplish much geod. Our children need and should not be denied such an opportunity for education and Influence. The people of Stepney De pot and surrou'iding places are cordially and earnestly Invited to attend and be come members of the school. Tbe future of the younger portion of our population, and the prosperity of our social aud financial interests alike, de mand that we have a laTge and active school. All of the children are heartily welcome, and everything will be dona IU PRIVATE PRACTICE. 8ach strong proof3 of the marvelous cures made by Dr David Kennedy's Fa vorite Remedy have been brought to public notice lately, through the various newspaper investigations, - that it has become now the standard medicine for tbe diseases for which it is prepared. Dr G. H. Inzraham, of Amsterdam N. Y., states where the regular pre scriptions used In acaseot kidney disease and gravel utterly failed, he prescribed Dr Kennedy's Favorite Remedy, and it cured the patient. Dr William Smith, of Jewett's Heights, N. V., prescribed Favorite Remedy for Mrs Casper Brooks, of Athens, M. i. ., who was sunering ironi kidney disease, ulceration of the stom ach, complicated with sickness peculiar to tier sex ; after the second dav, steady improvement was noted, and final per manent recovery. Dr Kenned' Favorite Remedy acts directly upon the kidneys, liver and Dlood, in cases or nervousness, dyspep. sla, rheumatism and Bright's disease; it has made most pronounced cures, after all other treatments have failed. Druggists sell it. to make them enjoy the hour. Beauti ful cards are given every one wbo at tends regularly, and a rivalry has al ready sprung up to obtain the largest number of these attendance cards. Af ter reciving five of these card3 they may be exchanged for a larger, prettier one to keep. When a pupil nas secured three of these ownerships cards he is entitled to a large, beautiful card, upon wnicn is expensively stamped some of the rare and lovely tropical flowers or birds with most brilliant plumag . These cards may also be kept. In addition to them, at the end of the year, the scholar having the largest number of ownerships cards is entitled to a special prize that will be well worth striving tor. Sunday school opens at 4 30 and closes promptly in one hour. Repeated tests of the milk of Wilbur r rench s herd show it to be excellent. It has run as high as 54 per cent for the entire herd (nearly 5 1-2 pounds of but- terfats to 100 pounds ot milk.) A sin gle cow in the herd has tested 5.9 per cent,(about 5 1-2 pounds of fats per 100 of milk.) 1 his tine animal is a small, homely beast, but she has the money I i m 1 i r v - Her name is Pansy, and she is leseended from choice stock owned in Litchfield county, npar the Massachu setts line. Mrs .1. T. Porter visited her sister, Mrs Sherwood Pwt., last week, and has been on the sick I i r. for a few days. Mr Thrall ot Hartford and Mr loucey of Trumbull, otlleers of the Humane so ciety, have been in town looking after several parties here, who use horses which are crippled and otherwise dis abled, and certain ones who abuse those horses by whip and other brutal treat ment, which if continued will result in the arrest and prosecution of these oll'enders and as public sympathy is in favor of the abused animal, it is well that all who handle this class of worn out horses take a timely hint, and avoid a skirmish with the law. Linda Milton, niece of Charles Thorpe, received the badge of honor for first rank in her class at the Barnum school in Bridgeport.

The feud that for a long time seemed to have subsided between the neighbors living on the road leading to John Fin nell's domicile, broke out afresh on Fri day, when John attempted to run Mrs Wells into her house because she object ed to his old horse pasturing in front of her door yard. This indignity proving to be a grievance too great to endure, she promptly brought a complaint to the grand juror and the ofl'ender, in custody of Constable Bartram, was hauled before a justice and lined 2 and Josts, amount ing to $12 in all, which he paid in pref erence to going to jail. It is to be hoped the war will now cease and peace once more prevail in this belligerent neighbor hood. Mrs J. Belle Santord aud Miss Helen S. Barnes arrived at home on Wednes day, to spend the summer. D. S. Sauford, after a short visit to Martha's Vineyard, will join them.

Turner of Hampton Uni versity will give a talk on than institu tion in the church on Sunday evening, July 15. This will be a most interesting and instructive meeting. A collection will be taken m connection with the talk. The Christian Endeavor society is holding its meetings through the summer, not on Tuesday evening as in the past moDths, but on Sunday evening at 7.15, immediately preceding the even ing service. The change finds the meetings well attended, and increases the attendance on the evening services. The Christian .Endeavor society has been dismissed at its own request from the Uousatonic Christian Endeavor Union, and baa become a member of the Pomperaug Valley Union, being rer ceived by it at the last meeting held in Morris.
