Tattle accused by Mrs Caro line Booth of shooting her on April 10, was held at the Town hall on Saturday afternoon at 10 o'clock before Judge M. J. Bradley. Attorney Charles H. Northrop prosecuted for the state and Attorney James T. Lynch appeared for the accused. The story is a well known one now, how on that date Mrs Booth was in the roadway near the hut at Botsford and at first it was thought to be the work of two tramps who purchas ed eggs of her, she claiming that she told the story of its being their work for fear of the man Tuttle, of the fruit less chase after the supposed cul prits, and later of the arrest of Tuttle on her confessing that he was the one that shot her. The case has attracted a considerable attention and the mysteries that have surrounded it will cause the progress .of the law to be watched with much inter est. Mrs Caroline Booth is a woman GO years old and was so enfeebled from the effects of the wound that It was with much difficulty she was able to tell her story so tbac it could be heard by the court. She was accompanied by her daughter, Miss Emma J. Booth, and her husband, Silas L. Booth. Her testimony was that on April 10 she lived at Botsford in a twe-room board shanty, with James W. Tuttle, and bad lived with him there for a year. That a week previous to the shooting her daughter came to see her and tried to get her to leave and Tuttle was mad about it. On the morning ol April 10 she left the shanty and started up the road, Tuttle getting his revolver from the shdlf and following her, and when she turned o look back saw him Are at her and she fell and knew nothing more until picked up and carried back to Dho shanty. She also testified that Tut tle had never threatened her, but had threatened to kill her son, Truman, who lived in Stratford. She also identified the weapon that wa3 produced in court as the one Tuttle owned and used. Cross examination brought out addi tional facts that she was 60 years old and had a family uf 12 children. That her re lations with Tuttle were pleasant. That on the morning of April 10,t wo men came up the road singing and Tuttle told her to lock the door. That they knocked at the door and she sold them a dozen eggs. ancr wuicu tney went away. This was about 20 minutes before the shootinz. That they took more eggs than they bought, but she did not know how many or did not follow them up the road to get pay for them. That ehe saw Mr Tomlin- son, Mrs Moran and Joe first after ehe came to after the shooting, and they car ried her to the Bhanty and Mrs Moran cared for her. That two daughters and three sons called on her afterward. That Tuttle to'd her to say if any one asked who did the shooting that the tramps did it. That she at first testified that the tramps did it before Tuttle told her to, but later said she said that for fear of be ing killed by him. She said Tuttle had shot at her once before when she lived with him at Branchville, and that she left him then, but be got her back again. That she didn't know how far away the tramps were when the shooting occurred. Mrs Booth somewhat annoyed Attor ney Lynch with a poor memory. The only other witness called was Dr James W. Gordon, who testified that he was called to the shanty about 1 30 o'clock, April 10, and found Mrs Booth lying on a cot bleeding profusely from mouth and nose, as the result of a pistol shot. That he asked ber how it occurred and tTuttle poke up and said two tramps had shot her, and Mrs Moran also said so. That he made an examination and found the bullet had entered about one and one quarter inches below the left eye and he probed for it but without success. That he cared for the wound, which be con sidered a very dangerous one. Cross examination brought out the fact that he asked Mrs Booth if the tramps shot her and the first time she did not an swer him, but when he asked her a sec ond time said they did. That he told her she might die and they would like to get a statement which he wrote on a sheet ot his note pad as follows : "April 9, '97. Two tramps. The biggest one shot me about 11 30 a. m. They were taking my egga and would not pay me." This was signed by a cross and witnessed by Mrs Moran. At this point the state and defense both rested and Judge Bradley found probable cause and bound Tuttle over to the May term of the Superior court under bonds of $1000, in default of which he returned to the Bridgeport jail, Sheriff Bodgers taking him down on the afternoon train. Quite a number of spectators were pres ent at the bearing. P. J. Bolan,a former Sandy Hook bo y but now one of the foremost merchants of Waterbury, makes an announcement to the farmers of Western Connecticut in this week's issue of The Bee. Like many another man Mr Bolan owes his success to. his indomitable pluck and en ergy. Beginning as a cierK, ne Decame a partner in a large hardware business, and for some years has had a store of his own. He has a charming home on North William street, occupying one of the his toric houses in the city. Mr Bolan, al though a successful man, has not been puffed up by his success, but is one of the most approachable and affable of men. His olerks have caught his spirit, and all who visit his store are assured of consid erate and polite attention. Some sneak thief stole C. . Minor whip from bia wagon under the church sheds, last Sunday night. He says if the party who took it will return it he will give them a new one as the one taken on it and cannot be used Scientific Farming. SOME FARMERS GRUMBLE ENOUGH STUNT THE GROWTH OF CABBAGES. TO O. O. W. is right when he says some farmers grumble enough to stunt the growth of cabbages and when cabbages do not head they are "2i. G." no good. Scientific farming is what might be term- . ed high farming, and a scientific farmer i must raise large crops every year and at the eame time increase the fertility of his soil. Good farming aims to produce equally as 'good crops per acre every year, but not eo many of them. Now here I differ with O. O. W. in re gard to the amount of $700 or $S00 being 1 realized from one acre of land for that man used all of his dressing mostly on , that one acre and after his crops were harvested his soil was no richer in the composition of plant food than when he 1 started in the spring. Xow if a farmer I owns or has 10 acres of good land he uses all of the dressing he hag on one " acre, put his seed on Jthat acre, devotes his time to working that one acre and realizes a good return from that acre. Can he be called a scientific farmer, be- I cause, like the ia?t ebeap of old, one is safe but where are the nine? That man is perhaps scientific as far as ' his one acre as one tenth of his farm is tilled but what of the other nine tent'u? i'es, it is useless to farm it as our ar.ces- ' tors had to. The new South and even the West has opened up new fields for the farmer and we farmers hre in the East- ! ern States can hardly compete with the new fields. Clljiateatd scile are againtt ' us to a certain extent. And every farmer here who can get his livirg and lay aside a few dollars for the rainy day that we hear about has got to hustle in this day and time in the Lurry and bustle of this 19th century, which is the brightest and best of them all, even with crying Ar- t irienia, etruggliug Cuba and helpless Crete, asking for help and succor from a , Christian.and civilized world. We can not but call this IJUh century the gem of them all. And when in the busy toil of life this thought comes to me : V "tackward, turu backward, O time in thy flight, And make me a child again just for a night," beside a glowing hearth stone, the room lighted from a bright and blazing fire in the fireplace, surely some of those days were spent in happiness and content ment. And one cannot forget tbetn. But sgain comes the watchword : Look up and noi down, Look out and not inj Look forward and not back. And lend a hand. H. W. Wright. ST ROSE'S CHURCH.
