The elm trees which have been spray ed In the town of Stratford seem to be doing fairly well, but the worm pest is not entirely destroyed. Those trees that have received no treatment are In very bad condition.

It will be a brilliant number, trust the ladies for that, and how the workers on The News will enjoy their vacation! Undaunted by a dozen more or less a'- tempts to establish a newspaper in Bethel, Johu T.

Five million dollars and sold to John W . Simpson of New York, representing the re -organization committee." This in brief Is the story of the sale of a great railroad property. If we had entertain' ed any Idea the property was going so cheap, we might have gone to Hartford and put in a bid. This season so far Is noted for its almost entire lack of clover, which means a loss of one of the richest, most nutritious portions of our ordinary crops The dry weather may account In part for It but not entirely. During the hot week early in May it grew very rapidly This rapid growth also made It unusually tender. Generally it Is so hardy as not to be affected Dy trie frosts, Dut the re peated severe frosts of last spring were too much for It, killing much and giving the rest such a check as to prevent further growth. In Fairfield County. STEPNEY AND VICINITY. REV H. MT. JONES DELIVERS HIS FARE WELL SERMON. It was with feelings of uncertainty that the members of the Stepney Baptist church , entered their sanctuary, last Sunday afternoon, when Kev H. W Jones, who has been their pastor and leader for the past two years, was to preach his last sermon to the people Itumors were rife that he would make it warm for some members of his church but contrary to expectation, be proved himself very sensible and gave as bis farewell words a sermon that was filled with good spiritual truths. The facts that have led up to i he resignation of ltev Mr Jones are well known. When he first came to Stepney be was universally lined, being a orient speaker ana verv social with his people. But be had not been here lone before be started a cru sade against the wrong doing he saw In the town, and in his enthusiasm and zeal in trying to ferret out wrong, many think ne overstepped tne Dounas oi ms canine At any rate it had the effect to divide bis church, some supporting him and some working against him. Such a state of affairs can never promote a deep religions church growth and fervor and owing to tnese circumstances people ana pastor de cided to separate, l ne cnurcn was well filled when ltev Mr Jones stepped for ward and announced the text for the ser mon. The Scripture passage was taken from Joshua 17:14, "The Lord hath blessed me hitherto," and the theme was "A retrospect of the past." Said the Ereacber in part : I presume one of the ardest things to try to do is to try to please every body. 1 never aia ana i nev er will. Joshua was placed in a very pe culiar and trying position wnen ne bad to divide the land among the claimants and notwithstanding the fact that though ne was a wise man oi uoa ana divided the land ot Canaan justly, yet there were tnose wno complained. That is the way with men to-day ; not satisfied with God's dealings with them. They were not sat isfied with the Lord Jesus Christ when he was on earth and I believe were he to come to earth to-day he would have the same barriers to break down now as he had then, for men would not be satisfied with him. No Christian man or woman has a right to grumble and as the best parting word i can leave with you would say be satisfied with your. lot. Look at the grand old truth of predesti nation. Some of you don't like it, but I believe In It, and 1? I only implicitly trust In God I believe all will be well. Some of you are only to your ankles In the wa ters oi uoa's grace, but launcn out. for the waters of God's grace are deep enough to swim ana enjoy yourselves in. Uod has let some sunshine Into every life so that none need be entirely Id the shade. The trouble with so many Christian peo ple Is that they will sit In the cold and shiver and will not go to the source of neat to get the warmth. The text has two principal points. First a confession. You and I are either lost or saved, but the man who Is wearing a spotless robe of Christ's righteousness, whether he be in the pale of the church or not, I believe la a Christian. lie then referred to God's Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOUITEE.Y PURE unchangableness, His justice in that all men are equal in bis sight no matter what their position here, His blessings which run through the life of a Christian like a silver thread. He then referred to a mother's love and to his sick baby girl, saying that though God in bis infinite wisdom saw fit to take the little jewel to Himself, Heaven would but seem the dearer to him from the thought of her be ing there. His closing words, he stated, were not for the audience but ' for the members of the church. Two years ago I came among you and from this pulpit preached from the text, "Bear ye one another's burdens." Have you been do ing it? In my ministry I have only preached one farewell sermon and I mean never to preach another, for when I'm through 1 step out and that is the end of Jones for the present. I said when I firBt came that it any had a grievance against me to come to me personally and tell me. Have you done it? 1 ou know you have not. lam ashamed to leave Stepney and I am ashamed that I have ever been the pastor of the Stepney Baptist church, be cause the Stepney Baptist church wont eat and when a church wont eat look out for Mr Devil skulking in. The service of prayer has been sadly neglected, but if you want the church to grow you must pray, and pray earnestly. Some have said that Jones has had too many irons in the fire, but I don't think so. I wish I had hat 25 more. It wasn't the Christ ian people who had said that, but Mr Devil. One of the society's committee has told tns that he did not believe in this work I was carrying on (referring to the work of trying to suppress illegal rum selling), but I believe the church should be strong against the rum and rum poli tics of this country. The brave men who went to the front did not fight for brib ery but for honor and that is what tbe church of Christ should fight for. Ail I have to say in closing is that our time has come to part. Be men, be women, and loin the ranks of those moving on ward to the land where parting? never come, and I say farewell, farewell. May we meet in Heaven where partings never come The ordinance of the Tord's Supper followed the sermon. Just before tbe service Rev Mr Jones apologised to Dea Burr Hawley before the church for his unchristian conduct toward him since he had been in Stepney and then continued with tbe communion service.
