FEIDATi JAHCAEY 10, 1896- CIRCULATION: January 1, 1882, 610 Last Week, S20O Around the Fireside. THE FAMOUS GUNNERY SCHOOL AT WASHINGTON, LITCHFIELD COUNTY, HON J. C. BRINSMADE, MASTER. AN INTERESTING; ARTICLE FROM THE SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN WITH THE 8 TORT OF THE FAMOUS REUNION OF 1892. There was a man named Guno who made a school for the making of men He was go much of a man himself and he made such good men that they called bis school the Gunnery. The man is dead but the Gunnery continues making men. Of these, who are the "old boys," a re-union has been held beginning Fri day, wherefore this much i written. One may be forgiven ;for saying that he had never heard of the man, the school or the town until three days ago, inasmuch as the statement is made in the spirit of a humiliating confession. Now that one's eyes have been opened to the vernal glories of the most beautiful regiou .in the state and have studied even from within the in nermost circle the fascinating story of an JOHN C BRINSMADE. institution truly rare, a feeling of com passion arises for so many others to whom these things that are to remain un known. The stranger within these hid den gates may feel at such a time tht after all the "old boys" are "old boys" everywhere. No schoolmaster was such a man as theirs ; and no school mother o tender and sweet; no school da"ys compared with those passed here; no spot like this in nature's lap was ever reserved for such an end. So think they all the "old boys" everywhere, yet none apparently with such intense and pervasive feeling as the graduate? of the Gunnery. Informed that you are an "old" somewhere else the Gunnery graduate looks surprised and disappoin ted and then he would pity your unfor tunate fate. For 24 hours thi sort of thing goes on and then the stranger be gins to feel that, never having hugged a tree in retribution for some school-boy sin, his life has indeed not been ordered right. THIS ENTHACING TOWN IS CLEVERLY TUCKED AWAY. In reaching it a change of cars is of ten necessary, but at last the Shepaug Litchfield and Northern railroad, after a stern chase of the Shepaug river's tor tuous course, lands one in Washington Up the valley, the hills reach higher and higher into the air and the banks of the now turbulent stream become more pre cipitous. At one point the waters break into foam as they dash through some narrow rapids, suggestive of that other river in the Deerfleld valley farther north. In Washington one finds the hills even worthy of Vermont. On the top of one, facing the Gunnery stands- an old, abandoned farmhouse, with four dark rectangular holes on a side and the resemblance to the Green Mountain state now - seems complete. To reach the school one rides up a steep hill, atop of which the main village lies, and across an old-fashioned "green," over whose fresh-laid carpet a severe old Puritan church looks askance at the broken out lines and plate-glass windows of a mod era country bouse.. Half-way down the other side of the hill is the Gunnery. A large reddish-brown building em bowered by trees and of a most curious shape is this structure. It is the an tithesis of the factory-like buildings, an eighth of a mile long, more or less, with dormer windows every other yard, in which the students of some modern academies are housed. The Gunnery's architecture reminds one of a selfmade man, because the building seems to have grown from small beginnings and to have shot out In various directions as necessity demanded or opportunity offered. One's attention is first drawn to a two-story hexagonal structure whose longest diameter is about 30 feet, con nected with the main part by a covered bridge under which is a driveway lead ing Into a backyard full of hillocks. There is a veranda 'running around the front, and a cupola proudly surmounts the whole. On the other end is another wing while in the rear many edd pro jections emphasizing the oldsaying that "there Is always room for one more." The interior bears out this promise of wonders within. Was there ever such economy of space as here? A semi circular niche la a corner is made the receptacle of books. Passageways shoot out in the ;most unexpected directions, and here and there a corner of the house expands Into a wee conservatory. ' Then there are bed rooms, which like hats, may be bad In all shapes and eizas. In some of the stairways leading to them a very large man would be in danger of sticking tight like a eork in a test tube. Near this rookery, which is In fact one of the most home-like places in the world, is the commodious class-room building, and across the street, on the edge Jot the athletic field, stands the gymnasium with its bowling-alley and apparatus. - THE PRESENT MASTER OF THE GUNNEKY and Immediate successor of the founder, is a Springfield boy, John C. Brinsmade, whose farther, the late William B. Brinsmade, was formerly superintendent of the Connecticut Blver railroad, and whose mother was a suter of E. D. Cbapin," president of the John Hancock bank. Mr Brinsmade, the schoolmaster married the daughter of Mr Gunn, and they now have six children of their owa besides the 40 or 50 other juvenile mem bers of their family. It is not to much to say that the school has prospered under Mr Brinsmade's direction In a manner most gratifying to the "old boys," and it is certainly true that while the unique personality of the fonnder is wanting, the efficiency of the institu tion as a training and collegiate-fitting school for boys was never greater than now. One of the most noticeable features of the reunion of '92 was the hero-worship of the genuius who died some 10 years ago. JNo matter what the exercise bis personality was recalled at every turn. As the "old boys" watched the ball game' that afternoon between the Gunnery and Litchfield teams, their thoughts went back to the days when Schoolmaster Frederick William Gunn played first-base and batted home runs at the most critical points in the game For he was a pioneer among American educators indeed, he was a generation ahead of his time in this as in other matters, in emphasizing the physical side of character-building. Mr Gunn knew 30 years ago the value of the train ing a boy receives in being the focus of all eyes on a hotly .contested field, and evidently he recogniesd the use of even the rough play in football in strengthen iug the fiber of the will. In that won derful book, "The Master of the Gun nery," which, without, disparagement to its talented and graceful writers, may be said to have almost written itself, so rich was the store-house from which its materials were drawn, Mr Deming tells the story of the fat boy who was placed by the master on second base to take "liners" in order to cure his timidity. One soon came so hot that the lad In a fright made no effort to catch the ball, but took it fairly in the pit of the stomach. QUICKLY DOUBLING UP IN PAIN, the leather was caught in the fold the fat boy's belly made and the runner was declared out, and Mr Deming says, "amid shrieks of laughter." At the Satuday evening dinner in the torn hall, which was delayed one and one-half hours by the exasperating breakdown of the cranky kitchen stove, the spirit of Mr Gunn seemed to inspire every utterance. It was an interesting dinner to watch, by the way. Nearly every placs at the tables wai occupied while the gallery was a vision of loveli ness in spring millinery at &l a seat. Mrs Gunn sat at the bead and was justly the center of attraction. A face with strong lines, an expression of rare sweet ness and serenity, white hair covered in part ..by a bit of lace that was "the mother of the Gaanery" as Mr Gibson, the toastmaster, tenderly and with ill suppressed emotion kissed her placid brow at the conclusion of his introduc tory remarks. The speeches that fol lowed were many and often were filled with true eloquence or remiaiicent humor. Senator Orville H. Piatt, who vas one of Mr Gunn's earliest pupils, told an interesting story of the school master's advice as to his calling in life. Young Piatt was puzzled to know what to do, so he asked Mr Gunn what pro fession he should take. The master ADVISED THE FUTURE SENATOR UNITED STATES OF THE to buy the Widow Bull's 50-acre farm and cultivate the soil for the rest of . his days. Mr Piatt felt sure, as he told the story, that Mr Gunn would have been satisfied, had he accepted the advice much better than be ever was with the prominence and prosperity which came Uter to his pupil. For, the master of the Gunnery was not ambitious that his boys should become famous charac ters ; he aimed to mke God's yeomen of them which was the, point of the senator's speech. ; Clarence Deming annalyzed the great ness of this Washington schoolmaster as a character builder much as he has done it before but with renewed earnestness and eloquence. George Hickox of Litchfield spoke as one who had been contemporary with Mr Gunn In the local life, and W. S. Legan of New ITork, a handsome stalwart man, reviewed Mr Gunn's place as a pioneer of the new education, physical, mental and . moral, la the United States. Richard E. Bur toaof the Hartford Courant offered a gracefully written poem, which he ; read with much expression. " Will" Beeoher, son of Henry Ward Beecher, Who was the dead schoolmaster's close friend. touched upon the more humorous tide of Gunnery life. Some of the stories he told, illustrative of MR GUNN'S QUAINT METHODS OF DISCI PUNK, t : are not to be found In Mr Demlng's de- itgntiui cnapter in the memorial volume. One Implicated Mr Gibson. The masher and some, of his boys were gathering appies jm tne orchard one day many years ago.- A boy named Dixon amused himself by pelting bis mates with apples. v many Mr Gunn, who was awaltin the chance, took an apple and threw, it at tne onenaer with accurate aim and con siderable force, ut the sly fellow ducked and Will" Gibson, who was Immediately .behind and bending over got the apple square on the j seat of his trousers. "I havn'6 been, doin anr. thin wrong," shouted the outraged Gibson. "Well, Will Dixon has." an. swered the master, who was shaking witn laughter : "Xou can get even with him." There was also a certain dot named Kelly, said Mr Beecher, who once tor mented some cattle. So the master told him. to go over oa.tbe bill-side where a nerd was grazing mount a stump and make a speech to the cows.' As soon as . the boy mounted . the rostrum ' HIS BOVINE AUDIENCE CROWDED ABOUND while the lad was to bn Gunnery windows emulating Demos thenes to the best of his ability. It was this same Kelly who was told to go into the yard one day and sit on the end piece of a stick of wood as punishment for some offense. Look i no- after Mr Guno saw the boy sitting in a most placid manner.

Eric Kossiter, the architect, also told a story which has not appeared In print. While a pupil young Kossiter one day defied authority and went on a bug hunt without permission. After an all-day's luckless tramp he returned and was immediately summoned before the tribunal of the master. First, Mr Gunn asked to see what he had caught and the lad, opening his box, was able to show him but five very commonplace bugs. Eyeing his pupil with a glance full of pity Mr Gunn said, "Is that all you got?" "Tessir." "Well that's pun ithment enough," such was the mas ter's disposition of this refractory pu pil's case. The influence of this school upon the town may be seen in the beautiful and costly country houses of such men as E H. Van Ingen, Eric Rossiter, B. D Barnes of New York and Belden Brown of Stamford. Many of these summer residents are numbered among the "old boys," and in them and all its graduates the Gunnery of to-day has strong friends. HOW LIHCOLl- LEASHED EXOLISH GRAM MaR. "I have talked with great men," he Lincoln told bis fellow clerk and friend Greene, "and I do not see how they dif fer from others." He made up his mind to put himself before the public, and talked of bis plans to his friends. In or der to keep in practice in speaking be walked seven or eight miles to debating clnbt. "Practising polemics" was what he called the exercise. He seems now for the first time to have begun to study subjects.' Grammar was what he chose, He sought Mentor Graham, the school master, and asked his advice. "If you are going before the public," Mr Graham told him, "yju ought to do it." But where could he get a grammar? There was but tone, said Mr Graham, in the neighborhood, and that was six miles away. Without waiting further infor mation the yoang man rose from the breakfast-table, walked Immediately to the place, borrowed this rare copy of Kirkham's grammar, and before night was deep into its mysteries. From that time on for weeks he gave every moment of his leisure to mastering the contents of the book. Frequently he asked his friend Greene to "hold the book" while he recited,, and, when puzzled by a point he would consult Mr Graham. Lincoln's eagerness to learn was such that the whole neighborhood became in terested. The Greenes lent him books the schoolmaster kept him in mind and helped him as he could, and even the vil lage cooper let him come Into his shop and keep up a Are of shavings sufficient ly bright to read by at night. It was not long before the grammar was mastered "Well," Lincoln said to his fellow clerk, Greene, "If that's what they call a sci ence, I think I'll go at another." He had made another discovery that he could conquer subjects. McCiure'a for Janu Fairfield County News. SHELTON. HORACE WHEELER RE-APPOINTED POST- ' MASTER. .'.
