FURS, TAKE NOTICE !
Don't read this "ad" all through to-day. Wait until after Church, Sunday afternoon. It's good Sunday reading, and you will have time to think about it all the week. We have a ntore full of goods and don't know what to advertise first or where to leave off. We had much rather be used as a football In a pro fessional game than to write an "ad" anyhow. But they say advertising pays and we are going to try it once more (Just for luck) anyway, before we say it does not. We have about 40,000 little things that we cannot mention at all. But we will make a start on AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENTS, Aud can truly say that we have a large and well selected assortment of all kinds of Implements used on the Farm. To begin with we have the agency for the vicinity of the following FLOWS: The Gale, the Imperial, the Columbia, the Wakelee, the Centennial, the Yankee, the New York and the Syracuse Wing Shovel Plows. All these Plows have been used in this part of the country and do not need to be talked about too much. They all sell on their own merits and do their own advertising by the good work they will do on the farm. Now about We sell the following: the Cutaway, the Acme, the Syracuse Spring Tooth, the "A", the old fashioned iquare tooth and the Thomas Smooth ing Harrow. These are all good and can all be judged by their "good works." Now about SEED SOWEBS and Planters. We have the Planet Jr. Seed Drills, for all kinds of small seeds In drills and the Planet Jr. Hill Dropping and Fertilizer Drill com bined. For a Broadcast Seed Sower we have the Cahoon, which is very highly spoken of and beats hand sowing all to death. CULTIVATORS, Come next, we are the wholesale and retail agents for The Planet Jr. Horse Hoe and Cultivator, which takes the lead over all others up to date. The No. 0 has the Lever Expander and the Wheel Lever, this makes it the easiest cultivator to handle and the Steel Frame makes it the lightest Cul tivator (with all the improvements) cn the market. The No. 5 has only the Lever Expander and the wheel hung on arms so that the depth can be regulated and changed by the use of one bolt. It will do just as good work as the No. 0 and does not cost quite as much money. For lulling we have the The Newtown Bee 'FRIDAY, JOSE 21, 1895. JANDARI ;. 1883, At mentioned above, both with wheel and without. These Plows, when once used, will be used every time In preference to any other Hilling Plow as they are so light and strong,being made of sheet steel and a good strong wood frame. We are also agents for The Which kills all weeds without tearing up the ground too much. This takes us up to Haying time when you want a Mower or a Horse Rake, we want you all to know that we tell the Walter A. Wood And the Walter A. Wood Horse Rake. They are acknowledged all over the whole world to be the lightest and best machines on the market. We sold 40 of those tubular SteeKMowers in one season. We fully expect to sell 50 of them this year. We have already had orders placed with us for several to be delivered in the early part of June. This fact alone leads us to believe that we shall reach the "high water mark" before the season Is very far advanced. If you are thinking of getting a sew Mowing Ma chine this year, tend to ut for Catalogue and our prices on the Wood be fore you decide. What about Horse IRGolszes At we have talc before, we sell the Wood. We cannot say too much in praise of this rake. It has Steel Wheels, no tires to get loose and no tpokes to come out right in the middle of the afternoon, when you have a six acre lot all down and ready to rake up. We also sell the National Hone Rake, It's a good one too, there's no use talking. But we have blowed enough on Raket. Come and tee them, then use your'own judge ment. We should like to Bell you one of both kinds if you don't know which yon like best. Well now we have By the dozen or gross, just at you want them, all pricet. Forks of all klndt all tlzf s, Horse Hay Forks and Hand Hay Forks, Hay Forks for the Boyt and for all the City Cousins with nice smooth bandies and gilded ferrules if you want them.'' Well now we forgot to say a word about HOES We have got them on hand though, all sorts and all sizes, for little folks and big folks, some that will help the "slow coaches" to hoe their own rowt, and not "shade the corn." v And Scythes. What looks nicer about the farm than a well kept door yard. The only way to keep one nice it to have a Lawn Mower and use it We have all klndt the Philadelphia, the New Model, the Henley and the Triumph, all good tnaket and fully warranted. For SCYTHES , we have the Clipper, the Mohawk and other leading brands at the lowest market pricet. Well we have written a long "ad"and have not had much to tay about lots of thing! we have in our ttore. But come and tee us if you want any thing In our line. Don't forget that we tell everything In the Hardware line at well at ' IFairLto, Oils, Grlaos,Etc, and will guarantee you low pricet and fair dealings and hope you will give ut a share of your patronage. JDcaATa. On DPotcito DB-u.gr ! We have again secured the agency for Leggetta' Paris Green Gun, and are all ready now to fill ordort for the same. Everybody that had one of these Guns laatjyoar, liked them and we expect to tell large quantities of them thlt year. CAST WEEK, filO sioo Town Topics. CHTLDBEH'S BIGHT AT THE GRANGE.

Baker, the Hawleyville furniture man, first broke ground for hi great furniture warehouse, some smiled, some scoffed, while others look ed on, in amazement at his grit and ener gy.

He had been in (the place but two or three days when he was taken sick and died with the small pox. He was a batter boy by trade, just out of his time and was probably taking his first "tramp.". A young hatter was never considered to be a full fledged journey man hatter until he had traveled over the country and visited or worked in the dif ferent bat shops of the trade. If be be came hard up he was given a "lift," or in other words a small sum of money to help him along to the next hatting local ity, wnere pernaps ne would nnd worK tor a time. It was customary for old hat ters to go from shop to shop and work up the oiders and pass on to the next. By so doing the old hatter became ac quainted with every locality where hats were maae m tne country and became the most expert workmen in the trade by leading this kind of roving life. Many of them became addicted to the habit of intemperance, a fault to be excused at that date. A more generous, sympathiZ' ing class of men never lived. The writer visited, a half century ago, a lonely grave on a hillside field, which made a lasting impression on his young mind at the time, The grave is situated about one mile southeast of the above named village and was enclosed by a neat picket fence with trees of cedar at each corner. At a late visit we find that the fence had fallen from decay and was laying across the grave and the cows rested in the shade of the grove, we copy the following In scription, which has been handed down in history. It may interest workmen of the trade and readers ol xhb jjke: in is monument is erected by the Society of Hatters, to the memory of their brother, Fisher Hartshorn, a native of Charles town, Mass., who fell a victim to the small pox and was buried in this lonely place, February, 1S25, aged ai years. In this retired and lonely grave The Stranger is at rest; His Spirit gone to Him who gave, To dwell among the blest. PLUMB HARDWAKE CO., 452 Main St., and 85 Middle St., Bridgeport, Conn.

The occasion was the unfurling to the Dreeze oi a oeaucuul American nag the gift of the trustees of the academy A most pleasing feature of the occasion was the presence of many of the schools of the town. The Foundry furnished its full quota, brought to the academy grounds in a four horse team gaily deco rated wicn nags, a large Danner noatmg from a pole in front et the wagon. Em ory Sanford handled the ribbons most skillfully. The Ridge school, accompac led by their teacher, followed in a vehi cle driven by John McDonald. The scholars were all dressed in white and each carried a small flag. Couch Hill also was in full force and presented a fine appearance.

The most perfect and powerful mower ever built, retains all the basic principles which were the foundation of the most successful of all mower, our original Buckeye, combined with improvements of such novelty and - evident value as to appeal to the intelligent judgement of all users of mow ers. A remarkab'e gain in efficiency and power in proportion to weight and draft. The greatest advance made in mowers for a long series of years. The Adriance Buckeye is the only mower embodying the following features : Every pound of weight of the entire machine and cuttting apparatus can be utilized for power. The proportion of weight of the cutting appa . ratus can be utilized for power. The proportion of weight of the cutting apparatus to be left bearing on the ground, can be adjusted to weight of driver and requirements of work. Foot lever and hand lever for lifting both ends of the finger bar, can be used separately or together. The pow er exerted by driver on either lifting lever is automatically doubled in ef fect by reaction of force on the pivoted seat. Lifting or folding the finger bar throws no weight on the necks of the team. The lightest possible draft and quickest motion ever attained on any mower. All extra parts are kept on hand.
