Warren, the horse andearria deiiler has sold seven camagea receni in WethersHeld. Mr. Warren says "six of these carriages were sold directly by reason of my adveitteenent in the Farmer. • Run my 'ad' right along; I'm satisfied." Occasionally strangers call at the Farmer office in quest of summer board. This has occurred several times recently, and leads one to think, all the more, that a good summer bowrding house in Wethersfleld could easily ba Med with desirable boarders. It is rumored that the Wethersfleld Horse Railway compaoy will, before cold weatber sets i u a t t f i u c l S f t w«it> The village barber "closed" on Tues-day for a two hours vacation. During his absence some one placarded the door with the sign "(;one to Heaven:; back in two hours." It is strongly sus-' pected that a last year's razor will be used on the man who put up the sign the next time he gets a shave. A coon baiting match took place in Wethersfleld a few days since. There was some fun and a number of terriers were mixed up in the melee with the coon, but at last accounts the coon still held the hogshead against all comers, the terriers having been whipped in all their onslaughts on his cconship. An unprovoked stone slugging match is reportm by four voung men to have been indulged in on" Wednesday even-ing by a resident of Main street. The bncks thrown came within an inch of the head of one young man, and if it same number. The boys say it wasn't UT trouble to make home nms, butM>mu<>ii home running made them tired. The battery for the next game of the Tonng Elnts will bs Clark and Greene. There is one number of the Fanner, the number bearing date, Saturday. March 12th, which we have severid times advertised for. The last time we advertised for twelve copies, we got three copies, one of them from Mr. Thomas Talcott, of New York, the other two came from Wethersfleld, parties. AVe are therefor" obliged to say to parties wishing full sets of the Farmer, that we cannot fill your orders. Two men, a woman, a brown bear, a monkey, and a push cart passed through town on Saturday last. They were the dirtiest, most uncouth speci-mens of humanity, the men and wo-man, which have passed through here since Xoah's mud-lwapattered cattle drivers went through during the great rain storm preceding the launching of the ark. The woman's dress, cut low necked in the basement, was decorated with fringes of rags, and her feet was clad in Gypsy kid to the knees, and dirt to the eyebrows. The men were not much cleaner. The monkey and the bear were decidedly the most respecta-ble looking members of the procession. This was the caravan which the young man walked into the night previous at the North Brick school house. have made Last Sunday was "Children's Day" at the Congregational church. A number of infants were baptized at the morn-ing service, and the evening service was made specially appropriate to the day by the participation of the children in the service. The church was hand-somely decorated with choice llowers. Four hundred and eighteen copies per week of the Wetherstield Farmer are taken by subscribers in the town of Wethersfleld. And this takes in most of the dwellings in Wethersfleld. AVe do not believe there is another town in the United States which so universally reads its home pjiper as does Wethers-fleld. VS:ia«e Mchta. The collectors of the Village Improve-ment As-sociation are .still upon their rounds, but the necessarj' sum has not yet been raised. It is admittedly so much better to hare the streets well lighted than it is to have a poor lamp service that it would seem to be an easy matter to raise the required 8400. But for some reason the people are not responding to the urgent appeals for this very necessary' purpose, and indeed it seems to be haraer work than it ever has been before to raise the amount required. We certainly regret that this is a fact, but so it is. The result now seems to be that unless the required sum is raised less lamps will be run IB the, future than were lighted last year. Anoaal Meetlas "(Gb a^llaf tnfi Seed Association took place this w e ^ in Philadelphia, on Tuesday, Wednes-day and Thursday. Important busi-ness of interest to the seed trade was transacted. The foUovring gentlemen represented the seed houses of Weth-ersfleld: Thomas N. Griswold, E. Decker, William Meggat, their respect-ive houses, and Deacon Richard Rob-bins, represented the Johnson & Rob-bins company, and Mr. Frank Willard theComstock & Ferre company. Wil-liam Meggatt was elected president of the American Seed Trade Association, for the ensuing year. A grand ban- ?uet was held Thursday evening, and 'riday was spent in visiting points John M. Morris Post left Friday of interest around and about the city, morning by the 7:40 train from Weth-' erslield. ' The post numbered about thirty men, and left Hartford with oth er Grand Army posts. The post was well equipped with flags, and made a flne appearance, and will add to the appearance of the great procession in New Haven. If coffee gets much higher buyers will need step ladders to reach it. It has steadily gone up until it now sells in Wethersfleld at an advance often cents on the pound over the rates asked a month since. But no matter what the price, coffee is something ^he average citizen must have for breakfstsl, if it gets so high that a man has to take a balloon to reach it. Drivers in light carriages should make a note of the fact that the curve of the horse car track at Southworth's corner can stand about all the bucking that can be given it by heedless drivers. Far into the night on Monday, or rather a little before 3 o'clock last Tuesday morning, a team struck that curve, and the wild yells evolved in consequence woke up the neighborhood in short or-der. "Go slow," is the moral. The Aitertainments at the Baptist and Methodist churches took place re-spectively Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. "From S8 to SIO" is said to have been made at each entertainment. These sociables richly deserved to have been well patronized, and would have been, had tlie public known anything about them. The sure way to reach this public is to hand your items iu for the Farmer which every one reads. Mr. Ernest Elton well known as vocal-ist in all this section, will open a sing-ing school at the Baptist church, begin-ning this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Mr. Elton's terms are reasonable, and he needs no recommendation here. ^Vs a word to the wise is all tliat is necessary, we expect soon to hear that this gentle-man has gathered a larro singing class for tuition in music. Air. Elton has a class in Bloomfleld, two classes in Bocky Hill, and scholars in Plainville and Southington. Read the advertise-ment The Young Elms of Wethersfleld went to Rocky Hill last Saturday and defeated the Rocky Hill club by the astounding score of 70 to 35. The toys on both sides should take a rest after that game Seven home runs were made by Clark, four by Hubbard, two by Deming, one by Feoa. Our carrier who had delivered his papers before he left for Rocky Hill made ten runs, Fennmade nine. Deming made nine, aad ottien of the club mxfa about the Old Ueeonb. Tlie following is the amount ut' the taxes paid for building the brick meeting house, 1700, in Wethersfleld: £4,761, 15«,4i4d. Or in dollare and cents, 815,- 872.5014. Tlie records also give the amount of school taxes collected in the Broad street district in 1818, with each i-dividual's name and amount paid. The name of one individual is given where the school lax amounted to 63 cents. Either he couldn't pay or wouldn't pay. At any liite he didn't pay, and the record then cites the law and gives the action whereby the delinquent's body iwas seized by a minion of the law lind transported to Hartford, acd there incarcerated in the "goal.,' the entire expenses of the trans-action, including summons, horse hire, mileage, etc., etc., being 81.S6. There i» no record that the refraetocy individual ever psid that Oil cents. tJtruwberry C'altora. The strawberry culture in Wethers-fleld is each year attaining not only larger ^dimensions, but better results ia ithe quiUity of the fniit. The advance duriug the past few years has been so ereut in this respect that berries from Wethersfleld are now as eagerly sought after as are fhose from East Hartford. A few years since when a Hartford merchant labelled his berries "East Hartford," he had put a trade-mark upon them which was regarded by the public as equivalent to saying '*'The world can't beat them." And East Hartford berries certainly are choi^ But a business man iu uartford in* formed us a few days since that for "choice fruit he thought the Wethera-fleld berries quite as good iu every way; and iu one or two varieties of the berry, those from Wethersfleld were a little the best." (juite a number of acres are now under cultivation in Wethers-fleld. The varieties raised, include about all that are best adapted to the soil hereabouts, and the demand for them, notwithstanding the large yield, is greater than the supply. The amount of land given to the ma-ture of strawberries in Wetherstield by the prominent raisers is about ten acres. The list of berry raisers, tbose making a busineBs of it, in the season, is as follows: H. a Wooley. Jolin Wooley, A. E. Btone^. B. Knapp, Bob-ert S. Griswold, and Frank H. Bobbins, and these gentlemen have this year put upon the market as fine an assoctoMBt of truitasooold be wisbad for bjr wiy Wi'-'
