One of the happiest weddings ever held in Windsor Lobks, was that at the residence of MM. Wm. Mather, at 7:30 o'clock last evening. The contracting parties were Eloise, daughter of Mrs. Mather; and Mr. Frederick Lyvere Baxter, of South Norwalk. The bridal party, to the music of Colt's orchestra, of Hartford^marched through the spacious parlors preceded by Dr. H. W. Northrop, of New York, Arthur D. Coffin, of Windsor Locks, Everett Noyes, of Stamford, and Edmund E. Crowe, of this city, to an alcove, which was a perfect bower of choice flowers, where, under a handsome floral horseshoe, the bride and groom stopped and the Rev. Mr. Wilson, of Windsor Locks, spoke the words that made them man and wife until death do them part. T he bride looked beautiful in a dress of white faille francaise, lace trimmings, diamond and pearl ornaments and in her. hand t a bouquet of choice roses. A '' '' The maid of honor, Miss Ethel Mather, was prettily attired in a pink surah. There were 200 guests present. The wedding supper by Habenstein of Hartford, was a marvel in the cuisine art. Mr. and Mrs. Baxter were in receipt pf hnndreds of valuable and beautiful presents. They left on the 10 o'clock express for Springfield, from whence they will start on a five weeks' tour of all the leading cities and watering places.

Schultze in this city, was written to Alvin Neukerchner, also of South Norwalk, which was interpreted and transcribed for us by Editor Ellen-dorf WETHERSFIELD, July 26,1891. DBAR'FBIBND:— I have read your letter with much emotion and with tears of profoundest gratitude. The contents of the box were very acceptable, indeed, and I am at loss how to thank the Pitzer's family and the other good friends for their kiudness. You cannot imagine what consolation- these tokens of love and friendship are to me in the midst of my sufferings, compelled, as lam to live in .a place where all the joys of intercourse with one's friends are wholly wanting, and the restraints to which are so detrimental to my well being. Still, I trace all this back to the hand of an inscrutable Providence, which doubtless, has shaped my fate for some hidden purpose of its own. I have received a letter from Mr. Bollman in which he advises me to engage a first class and influential lawyer, who should petition the Board of Pardons in my behalf, explaning fully my case and the reasons existing for pardoning me and who should act as my attorney at the hearing. He suggested to me the name of W. C. Case, of Hartford, and I have written to my friend Rosentretu in Philadelphia, to oommunicate with you on this matter. I understand that Mr. Bollman has ceased to be Chief of Police and has returned to his law practice. May God bless all your endeavors" to restore to me my liberty. Accept, together with all other friends for all the kindness and generosity shown to me in the past, my most heartfelt gratitude. , . , I remain as ever; your friend, WIMIIAM BUCHHOLZ. EXTRA SOUTH NORWALK NEWS. Proposed Odd] Fellows' Home. Odd Fellows' lodges all over the state are discussing the question of an Odd Fellows' Home. At the last session of tlie grand lodge,1 Judge Cowl of Wa-terbury, and at present grand master of the state, made a j proposition to give fifty acres of land near Water bury for an Odd Fellows' Some if the several lodges in the statewould raise the sum necessary for the ejrection of buildings. It is proposed to levy a tax of $1 per year on each meir(ber of the otder in the state. As thefce are about 13,000 members, the amount required for handsome and substantial buildings could in a few years be raised, and with scarce any one member feeling the outlay., The lodges throughout the state are voting on the question, and soon the state officers of the order will know what the feeling is regarding the Home. It is to be hoped that the members will see the matter in the light of a great benefaction, as other states have already found these homes to be. The grand officers are heartily in favor of the idea.

Death of Hon, Henry G. Hubbard. Hon. Henry G. Hubbard, of Middle-town, died yesterday afternoon, aged-seVenty- seven years. He was president of the Russell Manufacturing company and Middletown National bank and was a state senator in 1866 and a presi-dental elector in 1884. A wife, the daughter of Commodore McDonoghue, and one daughter survive him. He was very liberal, contributing largely for the Episcopal, Catholic, Methodist and Congregational church buildings in Middletown, also for the new Y, M. C. A. building. Worth $9,000,000. v, .' , Road Repairing. -V* .KW The borough authorities are doing a, good work on Main street in repairing the cobble stone roadway and relaying and raising the crosswalks, but are they aware that the two crosswalks across Wall street in front of the Masonic building and the one further below in front; iof the . MfB. James' and Weed's residences, which were taken up when the roadway was macadamized, have not been put down again and pedestrians have had to go down to the Danbury tunnel bridge to cross the street, all this week? - Again Postponed. The weather still looks so threatening as we go to press, that the managers oi the Children's Play and Lawn Fete ask us to announce that they will' postpone the affair till to-morrow, Friday, afternoon. They will then make a final effort to give the play, and if still prevented by the dampness, they will be obliged to abandon the affair conclusively. They very much regret the necessity which has left the matter so uncertain, as th« long preparation and eager anticipation .of the children seems to deserve better treatment. The managers have been so repeatedly asked iby such numbers of people to be sure to repeat the play if ppssible, that they have made every effort in this direction. V ; ' ^ t ' • - s ^ . The Elm Tree's Foes. The insects that are wprking such damage to the elms, this season, are described at length by Prof. 0. V. Riley in the July Agriculturalist. It is a European beetle and is especially fond of European elms, the common American elms not being so popular with it. It came here about 1837 and is a pale yellow beetle, marked with black. The larva or worm is what does most damage and there are two crops each season. They are hatched from eggs of a straw color, deposited by a beetle on the under side of a leaf, in groups pf from five to twenty eggs. The eggs hatch out in a week and the larva „ or worms do their worst- in about two weeks, after which they go in to the ground and are transformed into beetles. Prof. Riley says that the best way to destroy the pest is to, spray the trees, the last of May or first of June, with a solution of Paris green of London purple, one pound to 150 gallons of water,'with a pint of kerosene emulsion added for every .twenty gallons of. water. Another Way is to build a tight box about the ^base of the tree, so constructed that it will catch'arid holcHhe larvae or worms as they descend the trunk to reach the earth.? TO DISBAND A REGIMENT.1 •v.; Reduction, of the Connecticut tional C Na- Guard Proposed. vl J - • . ' v From the Hartford Post. A iact has just come to light that will cause considerable talk in Connecticut militia circles, and cause no end of speculation. ,s': 5-1 The Post is in a position to state positively that last February, even in the midst of the state officers' muddle at Capitol hill, the country members of the House of Representatives met to- gether and proceeded to get after the onnecticut national guard. An impromptu caucus was held, at which was present a large majority of the members representing the smaller towns of the state. The national guard was very thorougjily discussed, and several speeches were made declaring that the taxpayers didn't get their money's worth from the militia. Several members were in favor of disbanding the entire brigade, but more conservative counsel prevailed, and after a rather informal, but none the less thorough discussion, the country members decided to unite in voting to disband one regiment of the brigade. This measure will be advocated so soon as the legislature gets down to business. The Post relates this story on the authority of on^ of the leaders among the rural members. He vouches for it, and affirms that measure providing for the disbandment of one regiment will undoubtedly be introduced into the House of Representatives. What regiment will fall under the rural axe, is a question. The dissensions in the First make it a prominent candidate, but it does riot seerii likely that a regiment composed largely of Hartford companies would tie annihilated. It would be unwise, certainly, with the capitol and other state property here. About Mortgages. The census bureau, having had all the mortgages on record of June 1, 1890, looked up, has sent to each owner of mortgaged property a blank to be filled out, by which the actual amount due on the mortgage at that date may be stated, thus correcting the record, which stands for the full sum until the whole is discharged. Norwalk people have received a very liberal shower of these official letters. A New Chairman. Senator Quay and W. W. Dudley resigned their positions as chairman and treasurer respectively of the Republican National Executive Committee yesterday, and the resignation was accepted. James S. Clarkson was chosen as Quay's successor. v An Kditor Steals His Sweetheart. CHAKIKSTON, W. Va., July 30.—John W.

The big brother and father are in hot pursuit,' and vengeance is threat* ened. The World's Fair People Are Awake. CHICAGO, July 80.—Stuyvesant Fish's railroad will not sweep into the World's fair grounds alone. The Exposition company- has leased a right of way of its own, provided every railroad coming into Chicago with an entrance into the exposition grounds, snatched a large and desirable monopoly from the Chicago Central and gone a long way toward settling the question of the switching charges.

PHILADELPHIA, July 30.—The books oi the Keystone bank show that the $945,000 represented by the due bills actually went into that bank.

The committeemen say that they hope to see where this cash went after it got into the bank. ; A Captain Charged with, Cruelty. NEW YOBK, July 80.—Captain J. A. Thompson, of the clipper ship J. F.

One of the injured men, an unknown Hungarian1 laborer, died shortly after his arrival at the hospital. The building was 193 feet long and 103 feet wide. The upright frame was just finished, and the workmen, were placing the roof stringers in position. Forty-two men in the employ of Riter & Conley, the contractors for the building, were working at the time of the accident. About thirty employes of the Elba iron mills were standing below watching the progress of the work Without any warning the massive structure came down with a frightful crash, carrying with it several furnace stacks, heavy iron stringers and braces. A falling beam snapped a large steam pipe, and in less than a second a tremendous volume of steam was pouring out upon the riien imprisoned in the wreck. T^e workmen in the mills rushed to the rescue of their companions. When the steam was shut off the dead and injured were quickly removed. ' That so few were killed and injured is remarkable. Collector Erhardt Resigns. NEW YORK, July 80.—Collector Erhardt has resigned.

The majority of the business houses are filled with mud to the depth of three or four feet. The water roared terrifically as it came down the canyon. The streets present the appearance of a vol;, , canic eruption. The water receded in'" three hours, but the indications are that another flood will come, and people are ready to flee to the hills ait a moment's no* tice. _ .- •v>. To Sue the South Fork Club. JOHNSTPWN, Pa., July 30.—There was a. large meeting of the business men of . this city to take , action in regard to bringing suit against the South Fork club for damages sustained by the great flood.

A proposition to proceed . with the suits was passed unanimously.; Another meeting will be held Friday, when the money necessary, to prosecute the suits will be subscribed. Among those who took an active part in the meeting were dozens of persons who had lost from $35 to $100,000 in the flood. r 1 Accused, of Gross Plagiarism.
