Mr Kingman Is one of the few members of the Legislature who have not been ah jent a slogle time yet, but be says the business there Is just like his mill at the Depot. He gets everything ready for grinding a large grist, stones are sharp, water plenty, wheel la splendid order and everything starts off finely but soon nothing comes out of the hopper, and he finds the elevator belt is slipping, the buckets are clogged up and while the mill Is grinding away there ia no grist coming out, just like the legislature. We see the major is on the committee for Litch field county to see to adopting a state flag, and a better one for the purpose could not be found. The Hartford Times says he is one of the youngest and ener getic members of the House, although he is ou the list at C4 years. A REASONABLE REQUEST FROM ROMFORD It is getting to be an every day occur rence to hear of safes beiDg blown to pieces, stores snd private bouses entered by burglars who carry away all th money they can find and the best the bouse furnishes to eat. This quiet little place was not forgotten. Last Friday night they entered D. Gillett's store lo cated in the depot, by prying the door open with some tools: gotten from the car house. They went away with about $5.50 in money which was unfortunately left in the draw, and a bundle consisting of canned goods, bread, cake, pie, soda water, cheese, etc. S. A. Anderson's cellar has also been ruminated by some unprincipled wretch, since which time four cans of fruit, one of mince meat and a quantity of corned beef cannot bt found. Mr Anderson thinks he wil have no reason to find fault, considering the hard time?, if the light fingered gentleman will be so good as to return the empty cans. A VILLAGE TRANSFORMED. The new store of W. A. Watts ia near ing completion and will be an immense Improvement upon the old one. The Masonic lodge, Rising Sun,, will have a much larger and better ventilated ball and ante rooms. The new depot will be pushed along and visitors who come up by Saturday will be surprised at the new aspect of our "city in the vale." Mayor S. F. Seeley will soon see that water works are furnished to the community for theii water s upply, atd as to coal he has a large and fine supply on hand a ready which he will sell. ROMFORD.

Miss Case observed Memorial day by taking a ramble through S. D. Ford hemlock grove with the school children Mrs P. D. Ford and daughter of Long Island are visiting at M. C. Ford's. Thomas O'Hara sold a handsome pair of three-year-old horses, last week, to Charles Mason. Mr O'Hara has now eight horses on his place, including pretty pair of three-year-olds and a fim team of six-year-olds. H. W. Woodruff has just sent out from his factory a large lot of finely decorated carriages, some of rare design for the country. A. L. Baldwin, our watchmaker, has really fine fuchsia in his store window and the fine watches and jewelry there do not attract the attention the fuchsia does It Is about two feet high and the stem is fully one-half Inch in diameter. It Is weeping fuchsia and it stands upon a ped estal to accommodate the branches, which are over four feet long. It has now been ia flower for two months and still has a great profusion of blossoms that are very large and charm the eye. Fairchild Wheeler and Miss Nellie Brothwell of Bridgeport were the guests Over the Sabbath of Miss Evie Clayton Kingman. Sidney Lockwood, the rising young lawyer of Bridgeport, and son of Judge Lockwood, was aUo of the party, and they seemed to enjoy the country, the delightful weather and the rides about the town. Mrs Frank Buckingham, with her children, will spend the week : with Mr and Mrs S. C. Kingman.

A laigcr number of people gathered than ever before to listen to the child ren's program, Sunday evening. The in fant class had a larger share in the exer cises than usual. Their motion songs Gently fall3 the rain" and "Like the .lilies,"" were very pretty. 8everal cf the little folks had pieces. Recitations were given by Josie Bauman, Mildred Payne, Josie Clark and George More house. Grace Buckingham spoke the piece to stimulate the givers and the in fant class marched to a song and deposit ed their offering in her flower laden basket. The sermon in the morning was addressed to the children who occupied the seats in the middle aisle. Mr and Mrs Starr Kinney spent Satur day and Sunday with ber daughter, Mrs Giddings of Sherman. Rev Mr Luddington read a letter, Sun day moraing, he had received from Rev Dr .Newman Symth of JNew Haven con demning the anti-pool bill, making gam bling under certain restrictions legal 12 days in the year.

THE VILLAGE Children's day was fully observed at the Village church, last Sunday. In the morning the children of the several classes of the Sunday school were placed in the rront pews, and ltev Mr Jivana preached a beautiful sermon to them and all the other children present. It was simple in language, but quite affecting in narration of stories suitaole for little folks and others and very impressive. We hope all of them will retain the les sons intended from the entire sermon and remember how great is their influ ence on older people in many ways. IMPROVEMENT AT THE LAKE. J. Burr Wilson has iust completed the improvements about the Wilson house at the lake, and is naturally pleased that the work is finished. The changes give him a hotel with a lw-loot front. The di mensiona or the entire buildings are something like 100x72. The hotel throughout will be lighted by gas. Mr Wilson has continued the transformation throughout the entire hotel, and this pop ular place is bound to be more attractive than ever. Mr Wilson began the hotel business here in 186, and his patronage has grovn with the passing years. MISS HUMPHREY MR HOPKINS. The wedding of William C. Hopkins and Miss Alice Humphrey, at the home of the bride's parents here on Wednes day evening of this week, passed off very nicely and satisfactory to all inter ested parties and guests. The gifts to bride and groom were mott numerous and elegant. About 100 were present The ceremony was performed by Rev Mr Evana in appropriate manner and the congratulations offered to bridal couple were unanimously sincere for their future life and comforts. Ms.v prosperity and contentment ever attend them through all these coming years. THE CHILDREN COVERED THEMSELVES WITH GLORY. We failed to mention above, the exer cises in the evening of Children's day at the Village church. They consisted of songs and recitations by the Sunday school entire, with the exception of two selections by the choir. All the chil dren performed their tasks well and most satisfactory. It is needless to mention any names in particular for we failed to see or hear one which was not seemingly imbued with the spirit of trying to do his or her best. The service lasted for one and one half hours, but seemed much shorter because the renderings were so well done. Many thanks are due to Rev Mr Evans for his hearty co-operation in all the children's efforts, also to the su perintendent, Burton G. Humphrey, and Miss Laura Burnbam, who bag for weeks had tbe children in training and rehears al and accompanied them at the organ throughout the services of Sunday even ing. ve wish Children's day came much oftener.
