Wednesday evening, July 2.", a score or more of the business men of Sandy Hook gathered in Glover's hall and or ganized themselves into a publiu meet ing. A delegation of one, W. B. Sniflen, was dispatched to St John's rectory to notify Hev O. O. Wright that a gathering of his fellow citizens of the Second vot ing district of Newtown awaited his pres ence. Although tired out w ith his exer tions during the day (his parish had a Sunday school picnic that day), he re sponded to the call. Arriving at the hall he was at first totally at a loss to com prehend what it meant, the a flair being very wcretely mentioned. The presid ing olllc r, T. J. Corbett, then arose, in vited M r Wright to a chair at the head of the desk, and in a few well-chosen words told hliu the object of the meeting, and presented him with a very unique gold headed cane, bearing this inscription, "Jiev O. O. Wright, from citizens of San dy Hook, Conn., July 4, 1801." The gift was In behalf of all the business men of Sandy Hook as a token of their appreciation of his efforts towards bring ing about the recent (uecesaful celebra tion of Independence day. The recipient was surprised, but in a few moments re covered himself. He accepted the gift gracefully and made a very effective pre mutation of the matter of the celebration from the inside, all of which is now a matter of history; for in having history It is always nece-i.-ary to have it written right. After a further vote of thanks and confidence in Mr Wright, the meet ing formally gave way to social congrat ulations. DEATH OF ISAAC X. HAWLET.

Last Saturday night the second raid was attempted, by Sheriff Glover and deputies, on the Taunton nouses or in repute, but the first raid was so success ful that there were no arrests. .It really looks now as If we might expect to see them blotted out of existence. More eyes than one are watching these places, that for so long have cursed Newtown, and should they dare show signs of re suming business, the cry of alarm will be raUed so loud and strong that it will take gross neglect of duty on the part of our I'tiiciais (.wtio state tnat tney are equally iu earnest in this matter of breaking them up), to allow them again to be open for business. Another very effectual point is that the owners of the property, a man by the name of B.

That our townspeople still have a live interest and appreciation of the Newtown library was attested on last Tuesday evening, when the library benefit took place at the Town hall, and was very largely attended.

North rop, Miss Florence Warner, Harry Beers and Homer Baldwin assuming the char acters, for which a small admission fee of 10c was charged; It had also been planned to have additional stage attrac tions, but at the last moment it was found necessary to give them up because some of the leading characters declined to act. The ladies hid liberally provided refreshments of ice cream and cake and the tables were largely patronized. The young people concluded the evening with dancing, good music being furnished by Prof Piatt and Danbury parties. Taken altogether the library benefit was a so cial and financial success.

The tuition remains at the same low offered. The Classical course prepares for college, but the Regular or Academic course is adapted to the wants of a large class of young men and women who desire a preparation for teaching and for the actual business of life, but do not expect to enjoy further school advantages. Students who enter the school late in take up the full course may select for themselves what studies they wish to pursue. Several of the studies in the regular courses are elective. . The school has recently been equipped some laboratory supplies, and experimental teaching of the physical sciences .will henceforth be a prominent feature of the school. The class in Physics,, this year, should be even larger than last. Six recitation hours a week, or more, Forms and Commercial Arithmetic to those members of the Academic course who wish to make their course largely a business one. Instruction in Vocal Music (Charts), ture (including Delsarte) will be continued, The study of English, its grammar nent position in the school. Rhetorical exeicises will, this year, be held each week, consisting of orations, declamations, essays and recitations. The progressive new education ideas Tn order to secure the best results it is only necessary that the attendance shall be regular. Want of success in the studies is usually traced to absence from recita tion. The parents are asked to aid the teachers, so that there may be no absences, tardinesses or dismissals except in cases of necessity. There is need of study out of school there is no study at home the parent may be sure that there is a want of faithfulness. The Preparatory Department fold advantages by being connected with the academic work. They all receive instruction from the special teachers and marked success has crowned the efforts put forth in behalf of the very youngest classes in physical training, singing and drawing, as well as in the regular work. ,Few schools offer the advantages to the pupils of the lower grade that are given choice supplementary reading books have More definite announcement will be address, PRINCIPAL NEWTOWN ACADEMY, NEWTOWN, CONN.
