The use of the surgeon's knife is be coming' so general, resulting fatally in such a large number of cases, as to occasion general afarm. Mr. William Walpole, of Walshtown, South Dakota, writes; "About three years ago, there came under my left eye a little blotch about the size ot a small pea. It grew rapidly , and shooting pains ran in every direction. I became alarmed and consulted a good doctor, who pronounced it can cer, and said that it must be cut out. This I would not consent to, having little faith in the indiscriminate use of the knife. Read ing of the many cures made by S. S. S., I determined to give that medicine a trial, and after I had taken it a few days, the cancer became irritated and began to discharge. This after awhile ceased, leaving a small scab, which finally dropped off, and only a healthy little scar remained to mark the place where the destroyer had held full sway. A Real Blood Remedy Cancer is in the blood and it is folly tocxpect an operation tocureit. S.S.S. (guaranteed purely vegetable) is a real remedy tor every disease of the blood.

Apinwall Brothers of Washington hive laid fine concrete walks about the church during the past two weeks and at a meeting of the ecclesiastical society here on Wednesday afternoon of last week, it was vored to extend the walks to the iron bridge on the east and to the highway leading up New Preston Hill on the west, which will make a little over 200 additional expense. The last is to be paid from the treasuy of the society. Mrs S. C. Goodhue, with her horses and retinue of servants, are expected from New York City to her summer resi dence at Arrow Point, next week,for the season. She comes thus early this year on account tf ill health and hoping the change of air may bring restored energy again to her.

Hopkins' horses, while being chased in pasture by another horse, on Sunday, May 16, became so injured in a barbed wire fence that the owner felt obliged to kill her.

The North Street school is to observe Decoration day, with a variety of reci tations embracing "Sheriden's Ride," etc. This is well. It is not only good for the children, but it will be entertain ing to any of the patrons of the school who may dpsire to be present. Decoration day occurring on Sunday, many sermons on that day will be likely to be on themes in harmony with it. It will be so here. The sermon will be founded on the text found in lit Chroni cles 5:22, "There fell down mny slain, because the war was of God." The topic derived from it Is, war Eettles The war of the covenant people, through the bat tle bere recorded, settled things for these border tribes for nearly six hundred years. This was a final battle, as much as Marathon of Waterloo. The great Rebellion settled two things, slavery and the unity of the government. Slavery was its cause and it abolished it forever. The idea of state sovereignty received its death blow, nor is it likely that any state will hereafter have the presump tion to withdraw from the Union The boys in blue decided the question that as one government we bad a right to be. Thus a fundamental fact was settled. We are one nation from the Penobscot to the Sacramento, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf. The whole country is our country. We share In its com mon glory. These facts are wrought out with other practical things in the sermon for May 30. Rev George Banned, Jr., preached in the Methodist church on Wednesday evening from Paul's last words to Timo thy, 2d Timothy 4:6, 8, "For I am now ready to be offered. " The Sunday school has begun prepa ration for Children's day, using the Pil grim service- entitled "The Child in the Church." KENT. KENT DAS A BAD FIRE. Last Sunday at about two o'clock in the afternoon an alarm of fire was given and a house belonging to the estate of E. M. Judd standing east of the railroad and near the hotel, was seen to be in flames. The house was occupied by Patrick Lyons. The neighbors gath ered quickly and did what they could to save the contents of the house, but the fire spread so fast that they were unable to get out very much. The family were out walking at the time and returned to find their home a mass of smoking ruins. The whole village was alarmed, as a high wind was blowing and other build ings were in danger. The origin of the fire is unknown but it is probable that it was caused by a defect in the chimney. HE WANTED TO BORROW FIVE DOLLARS. Last Saturday afternoon a well dressed man called at several houses in the vil lage and tried to borrow money. He said his name was Mallory and that he lived in Sherman, and also that he was an ex-senator. He had left his wife In West Cornwall and wanted a loan of $5 to enable him to go and get her and take her home to Sherman. He gave as a reason for his need that his pocket had been picked of what money he had. He didn't have very good success in borrow ing and when last seen he was going north. PLANS FOR MEMORIAL DAY.

THERE IS NO PROFESSION, whose labors so severely tax the nervous sys- tern, as that of the ministry. The de rangement of the nerve centers of the brain by over work, frequently brings on attacks of heart trouble, and nervous prostration. Eev. J. P. K ester, SI. D., Pastor U. B. church, London Mills, Ills., himself a physi cian, writes Feb. 26, 1895t "Heart affection and nervous prostration had become so serious last fall that a little over work in the pulpit would so completely prostrate me T IVTilfi' nat 1 seemed certain I ut . jjiixw must relinquish the work Heart CUre of the ministry entirely. Heart palpitation became ReStOreS so bad that my auditors TTf'jItri would ask me If I did not IlCillIl.... have heart disease. Last November I commenced taking Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure alternately with Dr. Miles Nervine and derived the greatest possible benefit. I have just closed revival work of 10 weeks, preaching nearly every night and twice on the Sabbath. I can speak for hours without suffering as I formerly dlu.i Hard working ministers should keep Dr. Miles' grand remedies on hand." Dr. Miles' Heart Cure is sold on guarantee, first bottle will benefit or money refunded. NOT A SICK DAY For Over Thirty Years! EE STILT OF USING AYER'SPILLS " Ayer's Cathartic Pills for over thirty years have kept me in good health, never having had a sick day in all that time. Before I was twenty I suffered almost continually as a result of con stipationfrom dyspepsia, headaches, neuralgia, or boils and other eruptive diseases. When I became convinced that nine-tenths of my troubles were caused-by constipation, I began the use of Ayer's Pills, with the most satisfac tory results, never having a single attack that did not readily yield to this remedy. My wife, who had been an invalid for years, also began to use Ayer's Pills, and her health was quickly restored. With my children I had no ticed that nearly all their ailments were preceded by constipation, and I soon had the pleasure of knowing that with children as with parents, Ayer's Pills, if taken in season, avert all danger of sickness." II. Wettstein, Byron, 111. AYER'S PILLS Highest Honors at World's Fair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla Strengthens the System. In Fairfield County. SHERMAN. DK AND SENATOR WOODRUFF. The Hartford correspondent of the Waterbury American is a very shrewd observer of legislative events. In the course of a spicy letter in Saturday's American he makes this reference to Senator John M. Woodrufi of the Fif teenth district, who is one of the most level-headed, conscientious and reliable members the general assembly has ever had. The correspondent says : "One of the liveliest men in the Senate comes from the little town of Sherman, representing the Fifteenth district. Everybody throughout western Connecticut knows Dr John N. Woodruff. He has attained considerable fame in his profession and at the same time, apparently, no small competence. But the hard life of the country physician hasn't told on him much, probably because he has always taken a warm interest in something out side of powders and pills, so that at 61 he is still fresh for a score or more years of the comfortable living he has earned His chin whiskers, trimmed in the good old Yankee style, are somewhat gray and his hair is frosty, yet there isn't a nerve in his body that isn't as responsive as it was when as a boy he roamed the hills of the old town where he was born and which is still proud of his citizen ship. Some say he's 'cranky-' They say that of about every man who takes par ticular interest in whatever is going on around him, whether it directly affects him or not. Dr Woodruff has an idea that he has come up here to legislate not for Sherman alone, .but for all the state, and it's part of his business to keep his eyes and ears open. It isn't safe for anybody to count on a bill going through without bis knowing it and he's as lively as not to make a sug gestion or two about it kindly to say so As chairman of the committee on public health he has had opportunity to drive the lance of common sense through several airy creations of overwrought imaginations, but least among them the pure-milk bill this week, which was at best a wretched understudy for the law now on the statute books. Then, as familiar from infancy with the senti ments of the better class of farmers, he has been prominent at many of I he hear ings which affect their interests. Several times in the tubeiculosis hearings sug eestions were made which struck a layman as exceptionally reasonable till a question or two by Senator Woodruff let daylight through them. He has the advantage, too, of freshness at legis lation. He isn't so frightfully bored as not a few of the veterans appear to be and there's mighty little doing that doesn't have some element of interest in it for him. The senator is a married man, like every one of bis colleagues, except one Senator Plimpton, who Is a widower He remains here every week and is rarely absent from his seat." We have known Dr Woodruff since the days when, as a school boy, we looked forward with pleasure to his semi-annual visit to note the progress of the scholars and the effectiveness of the teacher. We can heartily endorse all that the Waterbury American corres pondent says concerning his worth and the sterling attributes of his charac ter. Dr Woodruff is a man fully equipped intellectually and by experience for any office is the gift of the people of Con necticut. His home is in one of the smaller towns of the state, but his mind is as broad as that of the most progress ive citizen who has dwelt continuously amid more bustling surroundings. He has always been a close student of public affairs and has kept In touch with every progressive element of the age. He is a man of the most exemplary character, "honest as the day Is long," absolutely fearless and independent, one who can be relied upon to do what is right no matter who is hit. As the Waterbury correspondent says, Dr Woodruff is one of the most able and one of the most respected ruembers of the general assembly of 1897. -New Haven Leader. ME MCKNIGHT'S SISTER MARRIED.

The presents included filver, bric-a-brac,- ut glass and pictures. IN THE PROBATE COURT. At a session of the probate court on Saturday, Judge Woodruff appointed a conservator over Mrs Jane Suarrow. Mrs Suarrow is an aged crgro lady who has lately come into an inheritance of 1000. For some time she has been a t wn charge and the application was made by the selectmen. Mrs Suarrow is about 80 years old and has passed her entire life in Sherman. Lawyer Frank Marsh of New Milford a? n i:: ei h c n?ervator. George Durgy wat in Danbury on Sat urday last.

The town court was regaled with an other neighborhood quarrel in which Mrs Thomas Reynolds, Mrs Matilda Girard and a young man by the name of Frank Miller figured. THE BOROUGH GRAND LIST.
