Office open Monday and Saturday evenings. BRIDGEPORT, CONN. A. 6. BAKER'S AD Do you contemplate committing matrimony this fall? If you do you will need Furniture and Carpets be fore you can settle down to house keeping and we are going to suggest that it would ba a very proper and a very prudent thing to come to Eaw- leyvills and look us ovsr before you buy We have an immense stock to select Iron and our facilities for hand ling are such t,ht we can make a liv ing commission and yet sell way b3 low city prices We hive no so called leaders in the store. Did you ever ac a'yza a leade;? It's an article of low vilus, fold ,--t cost or a little less, for the purpose of creating a false impres sion No expensive piec3 of furniture is ever madj use of as a leader- All of our goods are marked on a consis tent commission- You can pick up some of the other fellow's leaders at a less price than we will sell, but if you want a fine piece, or a general assort meat of furniture, to furnish up a house, you will find that the sum tot al of a bill selected at Hawleyville will be much less than the sum total of the same bill selected in the city We are selling a great many goods to the cities of Connecticut in direct com petion with large stocks in those cities- This no doubt seems to you lat first thought absurd, and a stretch of the truth, that people should leave places like Hartford and New Haven and come to Hawleyville to buy but there is a good and valid reason why. We can make it for their inter est to do so Did you ever think how much room it required to handle a large stock of Furniture? And did you ever think what it costs to rent and maintain that room ia the city? Just consider for a moment the odds in our favor, both in expense and facilities for hand ling, and you will see nothing so very absurd in city people coming to Haw leyville to buy lumiture. In these times people are quite apt to buy where the purchasing power of a dol lar is the most- It will ever be thus until we have fres coinage, and silver dollars are distributed around to the masses in a basket- We are selling pianos, now, and if you are going to buy one this fall don't fail to let us know it.

Now comes politlcs.gcnerally filled with ruin, Some are sent to legislate and some stay at "hum But the golden rod and asters are happy all the time, And swing about the roads and fields as If in sweetest rhyme. The st.irs begin to glisten, the leaves begin to tall, The hunter starts at 5 o'clock with his dogs and all; He wonders why he didn't kill that quail that flew away, And wonders si ill at such bad luck, in an Oc tober day. The woods! they are lust beautiful! the col ors are sublime ! The good can see the beautiful, not the man ot crime. The summer birds have flown away, the win ter birds will stay. And we shi.ll hear the chicadee, and our dear blue jay. The cawing crow will stay with us and take hia chances here. inuimgn ne-s Diacs:. like "other folks," lie's always in good cheer; He is the best oi watchers, a carelul sentinel, I.'would that every man would always watch as well. The Newtown fair is past and gone, but it will come again, And be prepared tor sunny days, or a drench ing rain. The slippers that Mrs H ly wore she cn wear next year, And not go to Hawlev's store, with "tootsies wet, oh dear!" Kow soon the "winter hats" must come, lor ladies must have hats. Some men will pinch their pocsetbooks and call the ladies rats; But just give us, in tall or spring, a handsome girl around, With one o' the "'-. jtfest little hats" that ever lady found, And we would take her to some fair in charm ing old Newtown, Where 1 he "lull" just settles things and puts presumption down; Where "Citizens" admire a change, and gold ond silver, too; We're not so "regular" as we were, we are looking rather blue. "How soon treads sorrow on the heels of joy!' Shakespeare said, How soon "a nomination" may put one sick to bed . But let the foliage drop, the highly colored leaves Should soothe a "fall" like the gentle r:iin from eaves. We add two lines to this last verse to make the matter sane : The prophecy has been fulfilled we made in the matter of old Gray's Plain ! Shiloh. SHILOH. The author of "Trilby" is dead. Tho wisest words he ever uttered were theae : Too much popularity has killed me at last." Well, I'm certain it will never kill me, as it has thousands of others. We see almost every day men and women who will die of over popularity. Alex ander the great died young, 33. Napol eon was killed in consequence of his pop ularity ; so was Ceasar. It will not do to become too popular. I.incoln lost his life by his overpopular- ty. If he had remained a "rail splitter" he might have been enjoying the pleas ures of a quiet and unknown life to-day. But God requires that some men shall be martyrs. But in the author of ''Trilby" we are inclined to think that death was cau?ed by late hours and the fascinations of that life which inspired "Trilby." The above is the "pro" or' the argument ; now comes the "con !" It ha3 been said that Horace Greeley died because he was not "popular" enough. George B. McClellan, Winfield Scott, Flenry Clay, John C. Fremont and thousands of others died "just because they were not popular enov ;h !" Well, we used to read when a boy that "Xer xes the great did die and so must you and 1." The author of that contemptible coup let did not seem to know that Xerxes was only "great" by inheritance of the "di vine right" to rule over men, and that aa a king and general he was a nonenity. Greece scared him, and he died, probab ly, for want of "popularity." Well, let us be popular or unpopular, we've all got to go to that "Bourne from whence no traveller returns." G. W. B.

He had what is call ed "twin carbuncles," and Dr Hubbard of Bridgeport, who was called in consul, tation with Dr Smith, said that in hla practice of 50 years, he had never seen a sirni'ar case.

THE CALI.F.X COKUAM WEDDING. Wednesday, October 1 L was not a beautiful vredding day as far as the weather was concerned but a beautiful ceremony was witDessed in the St Taul's church. The contracting parties were Miss Annie Huntington Gorham of this place and William Her riot Callen of Waterbury. Miss Gorham was lovely In a white satin gown cut entrain, and a tulle veil, and carried a bouquet of lil lies of the valley. Miss Edith Smith of Waterbury was maid of honor and was most becomingly attired in white mouselline de soie. John Callan, a brother of the groom, was best man. Shortly after 5 o'clock the bride was led to the altar by her brother, Frederic S. Gorham, preceded by the four ush ers, Fred Martin, Harold L. Foote, E. Hoss Hawley and a brother of the groom. At the altar steps they were met by the groom and best man where the betrothal was said by Rev Ralph H. Bolles of St Paul's. Then followed the impressive marriage ceremony by Rev George H. Bjick of St James, Derby. Numerous fine selections were rendered on the organ, as was also the regulation Lohengrin on the appearance of the bridal party and Mendelssohn's wedding march at the conclusion of the ceremony. Mr Holt of Waterbury was the organist. The interior of the church was tastefully decorated with autumn leaves and the chancel was banked with wild flowers, the whole effect being very pleasing and artistic. The fact that the church was filled to overflowing on such a stormy day shows the esteem in which tha young couple are held. Considerable annoyance was caused by the spectators rushing down from the gallery and crowding npon the bridal party and their guests as they were leaving the church. It Is hoped this rudeness was the re sult of thoughtlessness and will never be repeated. A pleasant reception was givsn at the home of the bride's uncle, E. J. Buckingham, where a. choice col lation was served to the immediate fam ily and a few intimate friends. That the bride had scores of friends Is evinced by the innumerable gifts both usefnl and beautiful which have been showered upon her. Early in the evening Mr and Mrs Callen departed for a short wed ding trip from which they will return to make Shelton their future home.
