OWKN MCCARTY OF SANDY HOOK THE VICTIM. ri1K .a. .... ine n"vy Miower or Monday were very welcome at far as the water was concerned, but the lightning that struck and put out a human life, came as a sud den and unwelcorned visitor at the home of John StUWon In Tlnkcrfleld. Mr Still on had at his guest Owen McCarty, son of Martin McCarty of Sandy Hook. Mr McCarty iias been In poor health for long tune, suflerlng with rheumatism and thinking a change from his home might be of bent-tit, he came up to Mr StlUson's, last week Thursday. On Mod- day morning Mr Htlllson went about his work as usual and Mrs Stlllson was busy with the weekly washing when the heavy shower came up, between 10 and 11 o'clock. All of a sudden there was vivid flash of lightning and instantly tremendous peal of thunder and a bolt had struck the rod on the house. It fol lowed the rod to the bottom of the house when It left It and jumped In under the house, which has no cellar in this por Hon, and up through the .floor into the bedroom where Mr McCarty lay on the bed. Reside tearing up some of the floor It split one of the bed posts and In an ad joining room tore oil' a little plastering Mr McCarty could not make out what had happened and Miss Kate Hurley, who was In the next room,al- felt the shock severely, the lightning tearing a hole her shoe. Mrs Stlllson, who was in the other side of the home, went to see what was the matter and its she entered the rooms she found t'letu to be full of smoke. She spoke both to Miss Hurley and Mr McCarty and after a few mo ments they seemed to be all right. Mr McCarty called for some water to drink and said he believed the lightning had truck him, but Mrs Stillson told him he guessed not. Help was sent for and about 15 minutes later there was another flash and crash, which struck a tree about 130 feet distant from the house. This seemed to aireet Mr McCarty visi bly and he folded his hand across his breast and breathed his last in a very few moments after the second shock. There were no marks on hU body and the sup position is that the shock was too much for him, weakened as he was by so many wcks of painful suffering. The dog felt the shock and it took him two or three days to recover from its effect. Mr Mc Carty'B funeral was held from St Kose's church on Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Father Fox officiating, and the interment wag In St Kose's cemetery. THE OFFICE CRICKET REMARKS That he hopes the small stones will now be raked off the roads about town. That he expects the clergymen will be happy, this fall. That there are rumors of various wed dings. That the crop of wild carrots promises well. That the largest yield he has seen is in a lot on the flat ea.-tt of Mr Otis'.

NEWTOWN FALL TERM BEGINS The cowing year will again be marked increased facilities for better work. The tuition remains at the same low offered. The Classical course nrenarps 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 life or for other reasons do not wish to 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 with much new apparatus, including 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, O - -w.j;raugjf4u0J4V.aa Forms and Commercial Arithmetic to those members of the Academic course who wisn to mane tneir pourse largely a business one. Instruction in Vocal Music ("Charts'. r)ra.winr and PinMn ani Ph..;.i r-.,i ture (including Delsarte) will be continued, this year. The study of English, its grammar and its literature, has been given a promi nent position in the school. Rhetorical exercises will, this year, be held each week, consisting of orations, declamations, essays and recitations. The progressive new education ideas nermeate the wort in n tha Honarimonio In 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 t.hfrp. mnp hp Tin o hQ&nnca tardinesses or dismissals except in cases l Here is need of study out of school by all tbe pupils in any full course. If there is no study at home the parent may be sure that there is a want of faithful ness. The Preparatory Department fold advantages bv beinsr connected with w V ' ' . " . . -- J . ItVlCIIC instruction from the special teachers and marked success has crowned the efforts put forth in behalf tf the very youngest classes in physical training, singing and drawing, as well as in the regular work.
