run, this time. For before "Mike" was
aware of the situation he was placed in

morning at the time of rising, failing to
respond as was ner custon lor years, the
hubband sought her bedside and found
her unconaclou, though alive. The
son, Thomas, then tried to arouse her
without success. ' Messengers were im-
meJiately dispatched, both for medical
and for religious ministration, but her
stupor had turned to death before the
arrival of priest or ductor. Her passing
away was so quiet, that those gathered
around the death bed could not tell the
exact time of the upward flight of her
spirit. The news of her sudden death
spread with lightning rapidity, and its
announcement, was a shock to the citl
zns of the community and town in
which she was well known and liked.

Despite the chilly driving rain that
had a tendency to keep one near one's
own hearthstone, a goodly gathering of
representative Bridgeporters assembled
at the North Main Street Methodist
church, Thursday evening, October 31.
The occasion was one of the popular
album socials and under the skillful su-
perintendency of Miss Daisy Hubbell it
passed off with such a degree of perfec
tion that none were sorry for venturing
out despite the inclemency of the weath
er. - Many of the figures were arranged
in garments representing the style of
dress in vogue in our ; great (great
grandfather's time, and if our ancesters,
especially our female ancestors, resem
bled in the least their ls'Jo prototypes.
then is it no wonder that the Americans
are a race of such goodlooklng men and
women as they are. Although the hair
was gray (varied with 11 ghts and shad
ows, streaked witn gray one might say)
the faces beneath were so bright and win
ning in their expression as to.suggest per
ennial youth as their lot. All parts were
well taken, owing, no doubt, to thorough
drilling and practice In posturing before
the event. Applause was frequent and
generous. On account of tne storm
many or tno3e who were to take part
were not present and owing to this fact
the entertainment was not as complete
as its promoters Intended it to be. How
ever, it is to be repeated, we understand,
sometime next week, when It will be
given intact and better, if possible, than
ever. A special feature of the evening
was a whistling solo, especially well ren
dered, by Mrs Theodore Bradshaw,
w,hicn was heartily applauded.
