Mr. Cliapman,who has been quite ill for a few days, is reported convalescent, and will probably soon resume his daily routine of business in Hartford. These are the days when sinners stand on slippery places, but unfortunately the righteous are in about the same predicament a.s are the sinners. Considerable sickness is prevalent about town. Mostly throat and lung troubles, with a few cases of diptberia, one new case having manifested itself a day or two since. Attention is called to the advertise-ment of the Iowa mortgage company in another column. Good investments can always be secured at the office of the Iowa Mortgage Company, Xo. 51 Asylum street. Mr. Wright, superintendent of the rail way track, H. R. R., stood the turn-table on its head, Tuesday, knocked] out about a pouud of ice, and then set the table down again. Siiice then "she was rolled once more," serenely. Sleighing parties from and to Wethers-field have been numerous all through the week, although the "beautiful snow" owing to the appearance of the January thaw, lias been, for the past few days de-cidedly thin in spots. The Grand Army lecture, which was announced for Wednesday evening last was postponed on acco'unt of the storm which prevailed throughout, the day. The lecture will be held next Monday evening, and the tickets now held are good. The seed companies are now daily shipping large quantities of seeds, and the trade may be said to be in a flourish-ing condition, with fair prices ruling in most iitt(«mcet, I the pHoM rate last year.

The damp atmosphere was favorable for growers who desired to strip their tobacco but beyond this there hag been very little movement in the trade. The following directors were elected at the annual meetfaig of the Iowa; Mortgage Company, at the office to Hartford, at 2:80 Wednesday afternoon: The Hon. J. O. Phelps, of Simsbury;T.O.

Thti present Dr. Crane, has kept up the reputation of the office in every respect. He truly says "Poor Dentistry is worse than no dentistry, We believe in first-olass work, and caarg-ing fair prices."

It has been the aim of the publishers of the Farmer to put the paper in every home in Wethers-field, and thus far this has been accom pushed with the result of addtog two-thirds of the residents of Wetheisfleld to our list as paid Bubaeribers. Mr. Mildrum will call upon those from whom we have not heard, and as many as as favor us wiUi their names as sub scriberswill be gladly welcomed upon our books. No attempt, however by EiniP eto.,wUi be made to secure subsonbers. The Farmer is a Wetbersfleld institution, It* publishers are grateful for the geuerous support It is receiving, they will be glad to re-ceive as many more subioriOQra as it is ible to secure. ThoM however who ^o not wish the paper left will ol ^ its publishers by so informing Mr. Mil-drum when be calls. Heretofore we have sold no single copies of the paper, preferring to give them aw»T upon appli-cation, more byway ofadTertiaemeat than for any othtf reason. Single copies hereafter will oolLtwo oentttaoh. The Taaac Sfaa'a Sapablieaa Olab. The Farmer is independent in politics, but our columns are open to both parties, and for this reason, we give place to the following communication: [ICDRROR FARMER. During the past few weeks, and indeed, ever since the meetings of the Younf^ Men's Republican CInb, of Wetbersfleld. held Just previous to the lust election, letters have been received here by mem-bers of the Wetbersfleld club, urging that their association be made perma-nent. The last letter is from the secreta-ry of the New Haven Young Men's Republican club, and is substantially as follows: MY DEAR SIR: Will you please inform me whether you have succeeded in organizing a Young Men's Republican Club in your town. I am desirous of ascer-taining immediately, as we are ar-ranging to have all the clubs meet by delegation, at our annual banquet, in February . If you have not organized, get together, and get into shape, no mat-ter if you only have enough for officers. You will get members enough after you have orgf^zed, and you could not have a harder time than we had. I hope, therefore, that a few of the boys will get together and start, so we can have a legation frou) your club at our ban-quet. Anything we can do to aid you in organization we will gladly do—and I think the Hartford club will be glad to also. Mr. E. C. Frisbie is president of the Hartford club. By 1888 we want similar organizations in every city and town in the state. It can be done if the boys will only make an effort. When-ever you are ready, let me know, and if agreeable, I can assure you of the atten-dance of some of our leading members, who will help stir up some enthusiasm. Rest assured tbat we are with you, HEART AND SOUL. Don't let up unW ou have started a club.' Hoping to lear from you again. I am, yours truly, Wade H. Thompson, Secretary N. H. Y. M. R. C. In consequence of the reception of those letters, and for other reasons also utiiip letter have ctHusltuiecl ^ ^ o t f i i K re^Ucatoa' cil lersfleld to hold a meettog as soon as practicable for the purpose of effect-ing a permanent organization. In pur-suance of the alMve a call will soon be issued looking to the attainment of the above ends. Respectfully yours. Several Young Republicans. To the Editor of the Farmer.
