Three very large elm trees were the victims of the woodman's axe here last week and the week before one in front of the postofllce, another one in front of New England hotel and another large one in front of the store of Evitts & Staub ; making the village look as thought it had been visited by a Western cyclone. Several more of our elms are dead and it is said they too have got to be cut down. The question now is are we to lose all of our fine elm tree? It so what a pity The one cut down at the New England house they figured it out to be over 100 years old. Well, there isn't so great a loss but there is some email gain. The village has already wood enough from the fallen trees to last all winter but we prefer to be out of wood instead of beau tiful shade trees. It looks now as if the maple will have to take the place of the elm tree in this locality. A VERY SAD CASE. Miss Amy Heritage, a very highly es teemed and beloved young girl scarcely 19 years old, was taken ill one week ago last Saturday and fell a victim to death just one week later with malarial fever. She was an only daughter of the late Cornelius Heritage who died less than one year ago. She had held the position of bookkeeper and treasurer at the store of W. F. Kinney $ Co., for the past two years or more. Her funeral took place Mofiday, October 21, and the remains taken to the Merryall cemetery for in terment. She will be sadly missed by her mother, two brothers, atdthe many, very many friends whuse sympathies are. inexpressible. " Why 'death should re move such a shining 'mark is one of the mysterious ways of Divine Providence. NEW MILFORD WANTS MORE WATER. The hearing between the New Milford Water Co., and the parties owning the land and water now under the process of condemnation before the state authorities is being heard at Town hall this present week and is to be tried before George W. Hurlburt of Roxbury, . John Hopson of Kent and Hon Herman O. A verill of Washington. The object of the aforesaid company is for the purpose of obtaining land for another large resevoir and a greater supply of water for the village. A great many people outside of New Mil ford have got an idea that New Milford er6 do not drink any water, but they do. It isn't all used for washing wagons. We want more water. V SERIOUS ILLNESS OF DR STAUB. . .'.

They were asked to give a penny for each year of age, quite a novel way. As each were provided with a neat little bag for the purpose, no one but the treasurer could know the ages of the giver.
