THE WEDDING OCCUB9
AT TRINITY
CHURCH. ,
An event of unusual interest to many
people in ," Newtown, Westport , and
Bridgeport transpired ' on Wednesday,
when Eev George Weed Barhydt, rector
of Christ Episcopal church of Westport,
and Hiss Jean Kissam, the eldest daugh
ter of the late Daniel W. Kispam, were
united in the holy bonds of wedlock.
The ceremony trok place at 3 30 o'clock
in Trinity church, the wedding being
strictly private, attended only by the im
mediate relatives, owing to the recent
death of the bride's father. Rev George
Thomas Linsley, the rector of Trinity
church, and a personal friend of tl.e
groom, spoke the beautiful words of the
ritual which welded for life the interest
of the bridal pair. lie was assisted by
Rev R. M. Kemp of St Paul's church,
New York. The bride was given away
by Joseph Kissam of New York, an uncle
of the bride. The church was very pret
tily decorated with flowers, which were
afterward sent to the sick in hospitals
Among those present at the wedding
were Joseph Kiseam, Miss C. R. Kissam,
Miss Elizabeth Kissam, Mr and Mrs Syd
ney .Cornell, Mr and Mrs Joseph Pigot.
Rev and Mrs Barhydt will reside in West
port in the new rectory" which Mr Bar
hydt has handsomely furnished for his
bride. They go away for a week's trip,
Notwithstanding the fact that no invita
Hons were Issued they were the recipl
ents of many beautiful gifts. The best
wishes of many Newtown friends will at
tend R v and Mrs Barhydt in their new
home.
THE 0ASB0LL WILL COHTEST.
Before Judge Tallmadgeof the Bridge
port rrooace t;ourt tnere was held on
Monday a hearing on the admission of
the will to probate of the late Andrew
Carroll of Bridgeport, a cousin of the
late Patrick Carroll of this town. Messrs
Beecher & Canfleld appeared in the in
terests of Miss Susie Carroll and Mrs
Mary Wells of Newtown, daughters of
the late Patrick Carroll. In the course
of his remarks to the court, Mr Beecber
brought out the fact that although the
children of the late Patrick Carroll lived
with'n 20 miles of Bridgeport, they did
not know of the illness of Andrew Car
roll till he was dead and buried. This in
spite of the fact that they bad been to see
him in the past. Mr Beecher further
said that the whole estate amounted to
about $30,000 and that it was very odd
that no blood relatives should be remem
bered in the will except one brother who
was believed to be dead and to have left
no descendants. He also stated that he
had not the least doubt that the man who
signed the will oftered as the last will
and testament of Andrew Carroll was un
der the Influence of other persons at the
time of the act, that the instrument was
presented to and signed by him at the
dead of night and that the attorney who
drew it up was related to the undertaker
who interred the remains, while the
physician who attended the man when
ill was related indirectly by marriage to
the family which would profit the most
by the terms of the will. It looked to
him as though there was a combination
tal"2s-,'2
and not In the manner he might want to
of bis own accord. The defendant in the
case, Lawrence Gill, who was left $5000,
was represented on Monday by State's
Attorney Samuel Fessenden of Stamford
and Messn Lvnch and Dono-lass nf
Bridgeport. ' The hearing on Monday
was not without interest, and it nromisBs
to be a pretty contest before conclusions
are arrived at. The hearing on Monday
was adjourned for a week. The contes
tants were not present and the court de
cided that tuey must appear and prove
th lr relationship to the testator before I
evidence on their claim could be Intro
duced. .-' '' -
LIFE'S S0HSHIHE HD SHADOW.
The illustrated lecture that is to be
given at the Congregational church, next
Sunday evening, October 27," at ' 7 30
o'clock, is noted elsewhere. All the peo
ple are cordially invited to come and see
what pictures and words can do in set
ting forth the many phases of the drink
problem, which is, beyond all question,
the problem of the age. Of a similar
lecture recently given by Mr James in
the town of Danielson In this state, the
local paper said: Rev J. H. James, Sec
retary of the Connecticut Temperance
Union, gave his lecture on "Factors of
the Drink Problem" in the CoDgrega
tional church, Sunday evening. There

placed on a large screen by means of a
stereopticon. The financial, economic,
social and moral phases of the drink
evil were emphasized by the excellent
illustrations, being indelibly impressed
on the" minds of the bearers. The sun
shine and shadow of life were clear and
convincing. Eev Mr James has happily
solved the problem of how tp secure and
hold the attention of people on the tem
perance question, and this Innovation la
a practical and pleasant departure of in
calculable good.
'THROW DEM PE4-N0T SHTJ0KS THE OTHER
WAT."
iion jonn iveny, popularly Known as
"Jakey" or "Bed Jack," had a close call
from sudden death, the other day. ; He
was engaged in cleaning out a well at
Merchant Morris' place, when a stone in
some way became loosened and fell to
the bottom, striking him on the head and
making two serious cuts. Mr Kelly
pluckily kept at work and did not come
out of the well for a half hour,, when his
wounds were discovered. Mr Morris
sent a messenger for Dr Smith, who
dressed the wounds.. . Mr Kelly la inclin
ed to take the accident philosophically,
even if the stone did weigh eight pounds.

their doors to all. Many thanks are due
to them and many others who helped to
make it successful. During the early
part of the evening a pleasing program
was given, which was as follows : Song,
VMiU May," by seven girls ; recitation,
"A bad doe." Miss Irene Bradley ; reci
tation, "When I'm a big boy," Master
Roy Smith ; concert recitation "The cob

by seven girls. ' After the program the
cobwebs were attacked with vigor.
Mise Elva Banks was the first to untan
gle a web, 65 feet long, thereby winning
a very pretty prize. . After the cobweb
bad been swept down, dancing was in
dulged in. At an early hour all went
home feeling that a cobweb party at C.

good time. The net proceeds of 917.40
were realized.
