Three more of the Sherman lawsuits have been disposed of as far as the low er court goes. The suit brought by the prosecuting agent of the town of Derby against Horace Sherman for selling li quor without a license while in charge of the Hoffman house of chat place, was discharged by the court, because of se rious legal flaws in the prosecution, while the suit cf Charles Hoffman against Frederick Sherman for trespass and damages through the use of water on the land of the former (which the Ucter's hotel has long enjoyed), was withdrawn, Saturday, after repeated ad- I jourutneucf, by the plaintiff, who paid all coats. The hearing for the appoint ing of a trustee on the insolvent estate of Helen It. Sherman took place here before Judge Ford, Saturday. Some seven lawyers were present, represent ing even more creditors.

There was a display of many valuable and use ful presents as a testimony of the well wishes of their friends, who after par taking of the delicate viands awaiting on a well filled table, either wended their wav homeward or tarried later to escort the happy couple to the station to bid them adieu, while embarking on the first journey of the unknown voyage of life.

It is probable that his friends will purchase his return ticket and etart him home He has been in Litchfield jail all summer The reason for this leniency is based on the fact that the young man was con sidered "a little oft-" and would be better cared for at home, where his peculiarities were known. j. u. neuey oi JNew Minora is in charge at Wildman's new blacksmith shop, just across the railroad.

The subject of Rev Mr Ivans' sermon at the Village church. Sunday mornlne. was "The soul, sin and death," taking for his text "The bouI that sinneth, It shall die." His views of eternal punish ment were much modified from the be lief of the former days. The literal meaning of hell fire he felt that he' could not accept. The 'punishment meted out to the sinner.the willful, unconverted sin ner, he thought to be in" the next : world banishment from all that is good, and true and noble and still further accelera tion toward the evil, being led On and made to mingle altogether with the vicious and bad. Surrounded by such associations he deemed the dinner's hell but a continuance in wrong doing and evil companionship of vile spirits till.the soul of the sinner in eternity would be come loathsome to Itself. The sermon was rich in thought, easy in comprehen sion and modern in spiritual ideas. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE VILLAGE HALL? What has become of the Village hall project? After securing the site, are we to wait another year or two for further action? Nothing seems to have been done since the deed of the site was grant ed and we hoped by strenuous efforts, and confined mutual action on the part of the entire community and vicinity, we should see the building erected before the new year came in. But we commence to think some one has gone to sleep, or the matter has reached such a state and condition that action will surely be de layed. T. C. Black still sends his team daily to the station to replenish with grain the bins in his grist mill. Hon C. P. Lyman was in Litchfield two days of last week, on official busi ness. The stab of the knife and the squeal of the pig almost daily now in different places in this village, demonstrating truly the fleetness of the swine's existence in this hamlet of ours. He who owns no hog knows not the satisfaction of seeing the scales tip at 400 pounds or more. We failed to mention in last week's Bee that Mrs Frank Humphrey andfson started from Dea G. S. Humphrey's here for their home in Redfield, Sooth Dak. on Thursday, November 1. A game of football was enjoyed in Watertown, - last Saturday, between students of Taft's seminary at Water town and teacher and students of Upson seminary here, resulting in a tie which we suppose means another game in the future.

Lem mon, of Bridgeport, who is detained here by illness, able to ride from G. G Hopkins' at Lakeside to this village, last Saturday. s We consider this locality fortunate in being represented in the coming State Assembly.

It was the largest eel seen in the Shepaug in some time, weighing seven pounds and meas uring three and one half feet in length and nine and one quarter inches in cir cumference. FARMERS CAUGHT NAPPING. The sudden advent of winter and the early snow of the year has caught many farmers with corn to pick and turnips to gather. We understand that potatoes are not yet dug in some localities. . " , VETERAN VOTERS. : At the late election there v eie four votes cast by men whose ages were each over 87 years of age. We hardly think that another town with only 226 voters can beat this. . W. & H. Bronson are busy at their fall castings. It will take them into the mid dle of winter to get all the castings need ed, as they intend to have a large num ber of Wakeley plows ready for market in the spring.

EXPECTS A REVIVAL OF NEWS. It is Borne weeks since I have written any article for The Bee, and it is for this reason that some one has got to "get a gait on," or do something that will be of interest to the community, or spoil something, and make it better, or in oth er words, have an old fashion jubilee, and let folks know we are on earth. I don't oare which, if I can have some news to write about for The Bee. But now elec tion has got simmered down to a nut-1 shell, we want peace and business, and I hope this letter will get up some spunk that will inspire us all to some great and good deeds, that may be chronicled in The Bee next week.

The purpose of this article is to pre sent to the public a few reasons - for our claim of the best Business and Shorthand school in this vicinity. Ever., since our school opened in 1887 we have pursued our way quietly and steadily, instructing our pupils with thoroughness and care and making no claims for superiority over other schools. As a result we have placed more of our graduates in good positions in this city and New York city and other places than any other school in this section, and now feekthat we can truthfully claim that Martin's school of business and short hand is in every sense of the word su perior to any other school in Bridgeport or vicinity. We say this in all modesty and in proof of this statement the reader has only to interview any of our active recommendations as we have listed them herewith. We would ask the reader : Have you ever seen a list of graduates of any of the other schools and bu sinets colleges in this city ? Cannot the graduates of the other schools secure positions? Why tin Boonrn nnait.innn? Wht not? Don't the other schools graduate their students? If they do, where are they ? They advertise that they actually secure positions for their graduates. Probably as their graduates are at the most few and far between they feel safe in making this assertion. But are they truthful in so advertising? We have tried ever since our school was establish ed to secure a list of the graduates of these other schools but as yet have been unsuccessful. Another thing, we make but one price to all of our students without exception for tuition at our 6chool. Our students pay that price and are satisfied because they feel assured that they will obtain a first-class education in the various branches taught in our school, and also that we will do our utmost to place them in good paying position upon graduating, as has been our practice in the past with most gratifying success. , The proprietors of other schools in this city have taken in students at various prices, and sometimes even without cost, and what have they gained by it? ' What have their students gained by it? Have they any competent graduates, or any graduates at all for that matter, and especially whom they have placed in positions? If so, where are they ? The proof of the pudding is in the eating The proof of the school is in its grad uates.
