The subject of a public library la tak ing form, and is attracting the public in terest more and more. J( will not be surprising if the First Congregational society should offer their old lecture room, rent free, during the pleasure of the parties for the use of the library, So mote it be. A NEW INDUSTRY AT THE 'VILLE It is reported that a new shop is to be started in the 'Ville for the manufacture of wool mats. Charles VVhitlock is at the head of the enterprise, and the busi ness will be carried on in the old factory building of Henry Dawson's. PEOPLE WHOM WE KNOW. Editor !Knox of the Woodbury Re porter is slowly recovering from a ee vere attack of grip. The unusually cold weather has frozen a large number of the distributing pipes from the main of our new waterworks George Smith of Grand Rapids, Mich. is visitiDg his uncle, George F. Smith, on Judson avenue. The Reporter says we congratulate our "oldest inhabitants" in having had samples of weather such as they used to have. Well, the "oldest .inhabitants" say in reply that the samples this winter taken all Id all have been more severe and unpleasant than any winter in 50 years. Albert S. Barnes fell from bis sleigh last week, and injured his knee so as to lay him aside for several days. Our old friend, Samuel Li. Bloss of Carmel Hill, on account of feeble health has sold his personal property, and is at present residing with his daughter, Mrs A. C. Lake. Frank Allen of the 'Ville is suffering with the grip. Dea Israel Minor, aged SS, died in Brooklyn, N. Y., last week. He was a native of Woodbury, having been born in a house that occupied the site of the present residence of Caroline Lines. Interesting meetings are being held at the Methodist church. Dr Henry A. Benedict, nephew of Henry S. Benedict of this town, died at the residence of his parents at Jersey City, February 4. He has been a suffer er from consumption for the last three years. The grip is quite prevalent in the Ville. ' NEW MILTORJJ. GAYLORDSVILLE. Daniel Warner and family have had series of unfortunate accidents. Mr War ner is now limping about, having stepped into a hole in the floor while at work at Morrissey's tobacco shop. Dr Donlon has attended him, and he is getting along nicely. Some weeks ago, it will.be re membered, The Bee gave an account of the accident to Mr Warner's youngest son. He borrowed a gun of a neighbor loaded It and the thing "busted." It was a wonder he wasn't killed, but he escaped with a few injuries, and is none the worse for the accident. Accident No. 3 hap pened to an older son. He was sitting beside the stove, when a younger brother accidentally spilled a teapot of scalding tea on to his leg. James jr.. morrissey has i or 23 men at work sorting tobacco. He has bought about 100 cases. The shop is in charge of W. J. Roberts as foreman, an efficient young man who understands his busi ness. NORTHVILLE. Cards received here announce the mar riage of Miss Lori Beardsley to Charles Bunnell, to take place February 19 at the residence of the bride's parents at 1'lainville. Mr and Mrs Bunnell are ex pected bere to spend a few days. We suppose Mr Bunnell desires to see the place where such a charming young lady was reared. Many here are sick with the prevail ing influenza. Mrs Payne is very ill, and Miss Alecla Payne is hardly able to be about. The others mentioned last week are improving slowly. Mr Hodlin and family have moved to Bridgewater to take charge of the farm belonging to Mr Welton. Mr Welton will board with Mr and Mrs Hodlin. Miss Jennette Stone visited Mrs Whea- ton In New Milford, last week. The statement made in your paper last week, that only eight were at the church service should have read 20. We desire to be thought very courageous here. Carr Lyon is recovering from the hurt received in New Milford by the upsetting of bis sleigh. Will Piatt returned on Monday to his home in South Hampton, L. I. ROXBURY. Clayton B. Squire, the youngest son of C. T. Squire, has bjen detained from school for the past week and is still un able to attend by reason of a hard cold and grip. Willard B. Hodge is assisting In the store of E. W. Preston taking Inventory and helping attend them during the sick ness of B. S. Preston, father of E., W. Preston. Burton Hodge and wife spend a few days at Marbledale visiting friends, going by way of New Milford on account of the uncertainty of the traveling since the blizzard. . A winter bath was taken by Horace Squire while dipping up some water from brook to water one of his cows. The ice broke land precipitated him into the stream, wetting him all over. With great exertion he succeeded in reaching his home, only a few rods distant, and soon had on dry clothes and a warm fire soon fixed him all right and at this writing is no worse for his adventure. John Morris drove to Waterbury on Friday and on bis return brought to his home a load of household goods. The little daughter of Dr Pons, who was quite sick for a few days the past week, Is nearly well again, we' are - very glad to announce. Leverett Castle, assisted by James In- nis, is packing his crop of tobacco, as the prices were not to his liking at present. rni . . . . . mere are several more in town doing likewise and many crops are unsold the owners would like to dispose of. ' WARREN. CONTRASTS. A neighbor next door to us has re ceived a photograph of Mr and Mrs N. B. Strong, spending the winter in Pascua, Florida, or the Holy Day of Flowers. Mrs Strong is represented as standing at the body of a large tree full of oranges, while Mr Strong is standing outside (he is about six feet tall) and reaching op in the act of picking the luscious fruit. It occured to us that there must of necessity be a slight difference in latitude. Hart ford is in 41 degrees 45 minutes and 66 seconds North latitude, while Orance City is 29 degrees North latitude or 12 degrees farther south, 720 geographical miles or 834 statute miles. Florida has 58,680 square miles and 39 counties. She is more than 13 1-2 timds as large as Connecticut, while Connecticut has more than twice the population of Florida. . A good many people from the Nutmeg state are spending the winter there. Twice the cold breath from Old Boreas has been breathed upon them, when sud' denly the mercury has fell 60 degrees or down to 16 degrees. We are sorry the orange growers lost so much fruit. We should have been more than happy to have paid them well for it, ould it have been kept from the frost.g AN OLD FASHIONED SPELLING SCHOOL buch occurred at the Center school room on Friday evening. There were over 50 visitors present to hear 30 or 40 children of school age, spell by chosing sides, and also standing up until spelt down. There were many recitations dialogues which prolonged the exercises until after 10 p. m. A curtain was ar ranged diagonally for the convenience of the performers. While arrangements for the dialogues were being completed a violiL and guitar dispensed music and trie guitar player sang a solo. The teacher delivered two recitations. One of them was an account of the soldier condemned to death by court martial for sleeping at his post, whom President Lincoln pardoned. The scholars and all did their part remarkably well. . Nearly every thing was cheered and occasionally the apparent expression of approbation was generously prolonged. The teacher required each scholar to pronounce each syllable of the word and not rush through it pell mell. This was the old way and can we improve upon it? If not let us come back to it. Time cannot be better spent in orthography than by pausing to pronounce each syllable distinctly, Selectman Forestelle is left alone in his glory in his important office, and his voice has rung out over the town with no uncertain sound since the blizzard. What has it said! "Open the roads! Open the roads. How can people travel if the roads are snowed up?" He does it so pleasantly, that we presume he generally obeyed. MORRIS. " CONDOLENCE AND APOLOGY. uur profound sympathy goes to the young man who vindicates himself nobly in last week's Bee. A scheme that will use a man's name in such way ought to fall as .flat as that dance did. We apologize for seeing any fun in it, and for not taking life as seriously as he does, but would remind him that the wise man said, "A merry heart doeth good like medicine" and having tried the remedy well on toward three score ytars and 10, can safely recom mend it as a grand sedative for the little ills and vexations of life, including those arising from floating rumors and news paper reports. . It works better than chasing them ; that is like stirring up a bumble bee's nest. lraveung has been a sore perplexity the past week. The wind has made sad bavoc with the roads which have been dug out nearly every, day, only to be speedily filled again. Sets and upsets have been of more than daily occurrence. but we will not particularize, lest some chevalier announce that he "took no more stock in it than your correspond ent."- Coughs, colds, grip and influenza are almost universal. ' "... Mrs L, B.,Camp is quite sick with pneumonia. . ; C. S. Loveiand is suffering a long and severe illness. , Dea David Whittlesey is quite feeble BANTAM. THE VILLAGE AND VICINITY. Miss Minnie Brown, a former resident of Woodville and once teacher at Ban' tam, , accompanied George ; Clemmons and wife from Plainfleld, N. J., Satur day, and will remain in their care for sometime. Henry Kuntz has returned from New York. He says that Lena Willis has a fine job on the Brooklyn Bridge. Won der if he still lives in a cabin. Mrs Eno8 Benedict is quite sick. Charles Fellows, agent for thelMil burn Wagon Co., was here on business, last week. Mrs Cora Miller died, last Wednesday, of consumption. She was buried from the home of her sister. Mrs Charles Dudley, Rev Hiram Stone officiating. There is to be another dance next Fri day evening. It will be under the man agement of Messrs Morey and Ravens- croft and will take place in the hall. Of those -who attend the school none are more regular in attendance or more appreciative than a little colony of mice and the neighbors' chickens, all of which make a fat living off the fragments left from the children's lunches. WEST MORRIS. SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO DAVID ; ATWOOD. : David Atwood, while chopping down trees, came near being killed by the fall ing of a tree. The tree rebounded and What it Does Backache and Kidney Troubles Kidney trouble is indicated by pains in the back; neglecting the pains results in serious ill ness. The Kidneys becoming clogged fail in their work of relieving the system of impur- ities. A change or decom position takes place. Once the structure is destroyed no rem edy will avail. There is only one time to attack the dis ease and that is in its early stage, when the first pains are felt. Buker's Kidney Pills area specific for Backache and Kid ney troubles, if taken in time. Druggists sell them for 56 cents. Book about Backache, free. Euker Pill Co., Bangor Me. hit Mr Atwood, knocking him between two rocks and holding him theie until assistants came and pryed the butt Of the tree off from him. The rock proba bly saved him from severe injuries. Mrs Jerome Wedge and daughter, Winnie, are visiting relatives in Water- bury. February 13, a son was born to Mr and Mrs William Zeigler. ; Monroe Throop is on the sick list. Clarence Senior had the ill luck to lose one of his best cows. ' NEW PRESTON. AT THE VILLAGE CHURCH. Rev Mr Evans' sermon at the Village church, last Sunday morning, was an in vitation to all Christians or professing Christians to try and save their fellow men and to extend a hand to all other brother mortals and to children, too, in viting them to consider and practice those things in life most essential to their immortal souls. The theme of his evening remarks was upon O. W, Holmes and the hymns be composed. WHOSE BUSINESS, THIS? How many children in this village between four and 16 years of age, have not been seen at school, this winter or if at all, by no means regularly ? Whose buBiness is it to attend to this matter? Mr Isaac Smith has been confined to her bed for two weeks being afflicted with the grip. This makes it bard for the balance of her family who depend on her so much for daily household duties. " Oscar E. Beeman is again afflicted with rheumatism, confining him a por tion of the time to his house. . Theodore Hemingson has decided to sever his engagement as blacksmith O. i. Bee man's shop by April 1, and rec tum to the service of his former employ. er, H. W. Woodruff at Washington Depot. - . Miss Emily Tyrrell's health is so far improved that she is able part of the time to be with the family at meals. We are pleased to learn of this change in her condition for the better. The scarletlna scare here, mentioned two weeks ago in The Bets, passed by with no more cases reported and all those in quarantine have been released BRIDGEWATER-. MANY ABE SICK.

The day was pleasant and the attend' ance good (35) at the ninth annual meet ing of this organization on February 16. The election of officers resulted in the same president and treasurer, Mrs Hun gerford and Mrs Stuart.

Mr and - Mrs McKnight sarg two beautiful .songs en titled "When the Roll Is called up Yon der" and "Sowing, Ever Sowing." One new member was added, Ruth Rogers, which makes out number 65 and 20 hon orary. Time did not suffice to speak of the polyglot petition which was that day and the previuos one being exhibited at the Convocation of white ribboners in Washington, D. C, and presented to the president and Congress. If there weregone signature on each line, the pe tition would be 63 miles long, bat there are millions of signers by attestation.

Miss Willard's address was read by Miss. Gordon. La dies from Chicago, Boston and other places addressed the meetings.
