Richard Mansfield is a level-headed business man as well as a clever actor. He has recently issued instructions to his manager to discontinue the use of lithographs and printing-»of all kinds for-us# in windows and on walls^and to confine all advertising exclusively to the newspapers. He believes that this is the best way to reach all theatre-goers, and .makes these observations *;in support of liig position i '' The^infiuence^ and tremendous power, of. the press as an adverti|i|iff' aaedium is- making if-?, self felt more and more every day, both in business and theatrical circles.*? ijk man who does not read the newspapers .^ever attends a theatre. ' The * weekly expenditure rfor printing,' at -a low average, is $150, which makes f o; a season of 40 weeks $6,000. In. ev^nt of 100 companies adopting my system, wTrich is aantall ratio of the number- of companies on the road, it' would .give to tkie newspapers throughout the country a yearly revenue of $240,000, which I ?m satisfied would bring'greater and inore satisfactor^TesMtS'lJWFli lo-the- thaatr-e*: going public and the attractions." There is certainly sound sense in this position and there is not the slightest doubt that Mr. Mansfield will be the gainer by the new plan, says the New Haven Register. The newspaper is coming more and more to be recognized by keen, intelligent businessmen as the best medium toj use in spreading the knowledge of thei • business enterprises to the public.

It is the cheap, flashy, second-rate show that needs the bill board, and tke rule is that the poorer the show the) more gaudy and imposing the pictures Vhich stare at pedestrians from the walls\ The truth of Mr." Mansfieldi observations regarding the superior Value of newspaper advertising over tllvt afforded by paper that is thrown fcbout or'pasted upon a bill board is bang seen by business men. Money spftnt in that class of advertising is Vjry largely wasted. The Newspaper is,* daily visitor to the homes of the people and it is read by all members of tie family.

They are incongruous and inharmonious, not fitting their surroundings. They, along with the despicable signs that adorn fences and rocks, advising the people of the merits of patent medicines, are abnormal developments of advertising enterprise and ought to be abolished. As the cultivation of the esthetic becomes more common, and in co-ordination with that, as the precep-tion that the newspaper is the only valuable advertising medium becomes more general, less and less attention will be given to those forms of advertising, and money will be expended mainly in the direction of newspaper advertising. • - "Are You in it?" - . —Any butcher in Nor walk who will exhibit 100 Turkeys of better quality, weight or appearance than those exhibited at the People's-Market, 21 Wall street, may select 10 of the finest of Wadham's Turkeys for use at the Town .Fafm on Christmas day. 255-3t Meyer won in the forty-third round in the fight with Carroll at New Orleans last night.

About 8 o'clock last evening, Mrs. Mary Anderson, who resides in the upper portion of No. 24 Park street was down stairs talking with her neighbor Mrs. Jane Drake, when her little daughter ran down stairs and startled the ladies with "O, Mamma, baby has set the table cloth afire.'' Mrs. Anderson rushod up stairs and found her infant child, whom she had left but a moment before playing beside the table, enveloped in flames. Mrs. Anderson with the aid of a wet blanket succeeded in putting out the fire, which in a few minutes more would have fatally burned the child. When Mrs. Anderson went down stairs she left a lighted candle standing in front of the stove and it is thought that the baby's attention was attracted by the flame, which is so apt to be the case with a child, and that it picked the candle up and set the bottom of the table cloth on fire. The child was quite badly burned about the feet and legs, and it was only the mother's prompt action that saved it from being burned to death, and possibly the total destruction of the house. —Any person calling at the office of the Singer Sewing Machine Co., No. 49 Main street, during the Holiday season, will be given one of the latest popular songs with piano accompaniment beautifully lithographed. 254-lw mftSiiJ: Savings in Connecticut.

She resided alone in a small tenement a mile from the center of the village, and her death is charged to John Hawley, a colored man, now under arrest. When Chief Tomlinson, who had been sent for by a neighbor, arrived at the house he was horrified at the sight that met his gaze. Mrs. Monson lay on the floor dead with a ragged gash in her forehead which had been inflicted with an axe and her breast was torn away by a bullet, and another bullet had entered the unfortunate woman's abdomen. Hawley was arrested at his home in Birmingham later, but refused to talk. He was in an excited condition arili appeared very much heated. He said he was sick and had been taking a sweat. His wife said he returned home at 11 o'clock. Everything points to him as the murderer. Coroner Doten viewed the remains yesterday.

There is an under-current of confidential gossip in high political circles, that there are grave fears of our Chilian Minister being assassinated at the American Legation, and that if he be murdered that war is more than likely to be a sequence, as the President and Secretary Blaine are thoroughly incensed at the insolence of Chili and the quasi encouragement that government, inspired by jealous .
