Strawberry hunters have been quite successful in the fields about "Wethers-fleld for a day or two past. The Rev. G. M. Gardner of Boston, has been visiting his sister Mrs. Luther Adams, of ^ u t n Wethersfleld. Charles Bhodes bati -the! credit of picking the first strikinrberries 6t the season, this year i a Wflther^fieldL Two Wanted advertisements In the Farmer this week, one is of interest to farmers, and the other to men out of work. At the dental parlors ot Erichson & McLean 3 Asylnip stroct,. fini denliT work can be secured nnd nt reasonable prices. A driven -well has been put down on Kailroad avenue for the purpose of fur-nishing water for the steanii road roller. Mrs. Hurlburt, widow of the late Capt. William Hurlburt, is very ill at the family homestead on Village street. Martin Cadwell, produce dealer, has, during the past week, bought large uantities of tobacco in Ellington and luftield. A copy of the New York Sun, dated September, 1833, has been ^handed in. It is about one-third the size of the Farmer. George Richardson, ^vho is something of a com fancier, has several rare old coins, one is a British penny and bears date 1749. A number of fine yokes of cattle for the Portland quarries have -passed through the streets of Wethersfleld recently. Over sixty cl.og8 have thus far been registered. Estimate say that about one-third of the dogs in town have not yet been registered. The board of pardons convened at the state prison on Monday, and listened to the ancient story of sundry appli-cants for state clemency. T)ie chU^ienilof Mftrti^ Cad:R< have been under th^cax^f I k with illness resultingfrflm acttrlel are on tlie road'to recovery. Dr. L. G.

The gardens, are all In pretty' fair growth with most of tbe crops, although the com Weather for the past week or so has made corn rather backward. A runaway horse belonging to Henty B. Bailey brought up a ^ n s t a tree ana post on Wednesday. The w a g ^ was damaged, otherwise the loss was slight. Dr. G. F. Luther has removed ^to tWe office formerly occupied by Dr. L. G. Chapman, 300 Main street, opposite the. old State House. Deutistty l a all its branches. There is one fleld in the western part of the town where the daisiea are so thick that the fleld presents the appear^ ance from the road of a heavy crop of buckwheat in full blossom. About 800 barrels of ale wops were salted at the Buck flshery this season. Capt. Thresher salted about the same amount. Both fisheries also shipped large quantities of fresl; "whops^" A yearling Ayreshire bull, dark red in color, ana sleek and shining as a bottle, with a clean cut "blooded" head, is one of the beauties owned by S. M. Wells, herdsman, at iVells Quar-ters. It is certainly a very fine year- Ung. A number of Wethersfield people have been on the sick list recently, but happily all are now reported in a fair way to recovery. Mrs. A. A. Coudray, Mrs. E. F. (Jriswold and Mrs. Ralph Rhodes arc all now reported as conval-escing. Collectors for the V. I. A. report col lections "slow." Something over f4()0 is the amount needed, and as sev-eral generous contributors to the fund heretofore have died during the year, tho probability is that no more than is wanted will be raised. Something over a dozen candidates for the position of chaplain at the Con necticut state prison have thus far come to the surface. A candidate offi-ciated at tho prison last Sunday, and preached acceptably. The salary is said to be ®liOO a year with perquisites. 11. Spieske, furniture dealer, Music Hall, has greatly enlarged his ware-rooms in Music Hall, and has restocked them with a large line of new furniture. Read his announcement in anoj^her column. You will find a statement of facts therein of interest to every one. The net profits of the Mission circle fair at Griswoldvilie last week Frida; were over 850. This fair was. wel managed and liberally advertised by the Farmer, and as this paper goes into about every house in this section every one knew of the fair and attended it. John M. Morris Post G. A. R., will attend the dedication services of the Midlers' monument at New Haven, June 17th. The post will parade with 'uU ranks, and will be able to show the arger part of other societies partici- )atirig, a. thing or two in the way of a rrana Army flag. iWe| are Informed by Selectman [ftuisthat thej^e is no town record of lag. The mSter was talked up some years since, but owing to the large price demanded by the Hartford gas com-pany for a lamp and gas per year, the matter was dropped. The stone crusher shut down work on Tuesday for an unlimited time, owing to there being about four hundred yards of crushed stone now on hand. The non-arrival of the steam road roller has prevented this stone from be-ing utilized, and work will therefore not again begin mitil the roller gets to work. The onion crop, which covers the hills and dales, round and about Wethersfleld is looking very finely now, nothwithstanding the dry weather of May. There are other sections of the countiy where onions arc raised in large quahtitities, but from present apearances the AVethersfield crop will hold its own this year against allcom-ers. William Meggatt was the firat to mow his hay this season in Wethei-sfield, the probable reason being that the rain beat It down somewhat, and probably the best thing that could be done with the crop was to cut it. Several pieces of grain on Tuesday lay flat in some parts of the fields, while in other parts of the same fields little damage seems to have been done. One section of the Boston -excursion-ists came into Alamosa last Thursday. This party consisted of about thirty people, and it was probably as fine a looking party of eastern ladies and gen-tleman as has come into the city this year. Among the party we noticed Mrs. J. E. Wilson, George Smith, John Amidon, John R. Smith, 8. Stiles, Frank Aldrich and C. F. Paine.—[Alraosa, (.^ol-arado Journal. A salmon weighing 9,^' pounds was aught in the shad net of Smith & Hale, on Wednesday. The catch of shad was 225 on the same day, and on Tuesdav the catch was something over 3(K) shad, 79 being taken in one haul. Uue .<^mall sturgeon was among the shad caught on Thursday. Another salmon was caught the same day, weighing 10^' pounds, this being tho largest one caught by Smith & llalc. The Farmer is young yet, but it al-ready has subscribers in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, California and Ore-gon and Rhode Island, which proves that Wethersfleld people have emigra-ted and settled in all parts of the coun-try, for the presumption is that these subscribers in the main, want the Far-mer for its local news. We invite attention to the large ad-vertisement of Allyn, Blanchard & Co. in our columns to-day. This firm is one of the largest importers in coffees, teas, spices, etc., in New England, and the new brand of coffee wmch they have recently introdued is meeting with such a ready sale to consumers that It is fast taking the front ranks in the matkets. Thu delicious coffee is known in commercial circles as "Menado Java," and it is certainly a superior article in everyway. Call for It at your grocers, they all keep I t The town lot next to Hills' Hotel has been occupied by the town with stone for some time, mainly for the purpose of making title of the lot good b/reason of possession. The lot was taken for road purposes, and it was so decreed by judicial authority. Hence, the proba-bility is that it can be used for no other purpose. But as the town now has valid possessslon it will of course clean it up and make the land a little less of an eye-sore than it has been for some time past. Street Ughtlnv. The town has been divided into three collection districts by the Village Im-provement Association for the pun?ose of securing contributions to light the lamps for the ensuing year. The Broad street district contains eighteen lamps, and the residents in that section are contributing very fairly. The High street district contains thirteen lamps, and the North Brick district has eleven lamps. Collectors in the two last named districts flnd the collections of their quota of the funds harder work than it was last year. This should not be the case. The Village Improvement Asso-ciation has taken upon itself a work which is in every sense for the public good. When a citizen contributes to this fund he is not paying for a light for the path ot his neighbor alone, but for himself quite as much. Surely no man cares to wander through the streets of Wethersfield in total ^rkness, and this is exactly what he will have to do unless a sufficient sum is raised to li^ht the village lamps. It does not require much public spirit to help pay for a light which benefits the cotitrlbutor quite as much as it does anyone else. We trust every citizen called upon will respond promptly with his contribution ana instead of giving the solicitor the cold shoulder will come dowtt hand-somely with his cash. Fine MortffnKe InveatuioBt. In these days of uncertaint;^ a^d in-security it is a great boon to be'^o^vh a line of investments that is perfeotjly re-liable and at the same tune a good return of 7 and 8 per cent' '^uch - are the Western mortgages ne^tiated this established flrnfeshii^ > m- WTfairrdogeffdr _ " banks—E.
