HEWTOWIf, FRIDAY, MARCH 26. The Editor's Familiar Chat. Our friend and fellow citizen, A. F Clarke, hai remembered us with a copv of the Hawaiian Star. It Is printed lo English, ha both dally and weekly editions, and has all the snap and bustle of an American publication. douthbury loses a good cltlz-w In the death of l)ea Sherman Tuttle. A plain, honest, righteous man he was, of a type of which we have too few. lie was faithful In his day and generation, and like One of Old, "went about doing good." lie was a man of solid worth, a citizen like our own lamented Philo Clarke. J. M. Fluke, says Newspaperdom, Is a wide-awake farmer of Nankin, O , who believes In advertis ing farm products. In a paper read re cently before the Polk Farmers' Insti tute, Mr Fluke contends that what farmers call over-production is under consumption and poor distribution, and that a remedy for these conditions, caused partly by a lack of Information of what the farmars have to sell, and bow It may be obtained, lies in the proper use of printers' ink. Taat many of the farmers In Tub Hek's field II id it pays to advertise is shown by the large number of advertisements this paper re ceives, and they come without solicita tion. The movement against slum journalism Is steadily training force. Libraries in all parts of the territory, which certain New York sensational journals enter are being excluded from their reading rooms. And if all people who cherish the sanctity of the home will unite In withholding their patronage, the propri etors of these sensational sheets may be brought to terras. This idea was most aptly expressed by Kev George T. Llns ley, rector of Trinity church, who spoke as follows from his pulpit, last Sunday morning : I feel It to be my duty to call the at tention of the congregation to a subjoct which Is now occupying much of the thought of right minded people, namely, the evils of the so-called "new Journal Ism." There are two daily newspapers published in New York City which are the leading exponents of this sort of lit erature. They have already been ex cluded from several reading rooms and libraries and from many homes of re spectable people and have met the public disapproval of at least one bishop of the church. I believe the contents of those newspapers to be coarse, Impure, untrue, sensational, and degrading. I therefore call upon all Christian people, especially members of this parish, and upon all loy al cltlzsns who love purity of life and good morals, not to patronize or read the papers referred to, and to use their Influ ence to persuade others to a like course. Loss of patronage to the publishers Is the only thing which will check this evil. SOUTH BRITAIN. PERSONAL CHAT. Miss Dora Pierce has been spending a week In Sandy Hook.

Miss Bessie Shaw sang a solo and Miss Mary Shaw gave a reci tation entitled "Only a Penny." Ap propriate anthems and songs by the choir, accompanied by the Dew organ, added much to the i'jteiec of the occa sion. On the whole it was one of the most interesting and successful enter tainments of the season. t -There was a large and enthusiastic au dience at the lecture room of the Con gregational church on Thursday even ing to enjoy the graphophone entertain ment given by Col Phillips, and the peo ple were not slow in showing their ap preciation of the marvelous powers cf this wonderful invention. The repro duction of the speeches of McKinley and Bryan, the perfect rendering of the mus ical selections both vocal and instrumen tal, the stories told by some of our well known humorists were all thoroughly enjoyed and heartily applauded.

THE CONCERT A G BEAT SUCCESS On account and absence from home six of the leading singers of the "Old Folks" were net present at the concert last week, and to say they were greatly missed by the rest of the singers is a very- mild statement. Still the concert was well , received and quite a success financially, I when the condition of the roads was considered, and the fact that two notices of the date given in the paper conflicted, . leaving it in doubt which evening was , the correct one. The ladies furnished '. a finely prepared supper, from their best cooks, after the concert, to which great respect ana surprising attention was given by the "Old Folks." ORANGE TOPICS.

A Milburn wagon used 10 years brought quickly $40, while an agent there after the sale was passed in formed his hearers he would be glad to furnish tbem to all who wished, new,',for the same money, but it was an auction, which sometimes raises values, and sends all home feeling that it has been for them a glorious day of opportunity.
