Address all orders to the GAZETTE, Norwalk, Conn. mE® The Ways of Advertisers* Why advertisers select certain seasons of the year, prepare their copy is certain ways and publish in one paper 01* another—sometimes1 in many and often in one only—is a/mystery to some people. But the advertisers themselves understand the matter perfectly. They start from the fcasis of the pocket, to which they frequently return to test their theories. There is but one purpose in Advertising, and the advertiser alone can discover where, in what manner and how far he can be aided by printer's ink. We cannot deny that we are gratified by the favor with which advertisers seem to regard the GAZETTE. As we have already said, the advertisers know best why they thus specially favor the GAZETTE. They also know that it is not because of "cut rates," for in this respect, the GAZETTE never attempts to compete with those who are accommodating enough to take advertising at the bare cost of setting the type. Value of the Telephone. Every day we learn to appreciate more and more the great value of the telephone. It saves us much time and a great deal of travel. Recently a New Jersey man was called up at his place of business and told to hurry home. He responded and found a son awaiting his arrival. He returned tQ the store and a few minuti s later was sent for again. On reaching home a second son was presented to him. Feeling highly tickled he went again to his work and had hardly resumed his occupation before the third son was announced. Hanging the reoeiver in the hook he turned away with a weary air, only to be called up again in a few moments lo receive the gratifying intelligence that a fourth had been added to his household. His disgust was so emphatic that he ordered his clerks not to answer that telephone again if it rang all day. If it had not been for the instrument, however, imagine the shock in his nerves when he arrived home to the usual course of events to find all four of those babies ready to welcome him. This is why we say the telephone should be appreciated, for no man knowetu iu what day or hour, some cverblessed Norwalk paterfatniles, may be called up telephone, to have a similar over-joyous message sweetly whispered into his eager and expectant ear. So we say, support the Norwalk branch of the telephone system. Mr. E. T.

The job printing forthe annual Lawn Tennis club's ball was entrusted to our genial friend, J. Arthur Pinneo, who affects to be esthetic, and especjplly the esthetic percentages in? printing. Now there are in the town that supports Pin-neo's own business, five different places where he could have had his orders of dancing neatly, quickly and reasona-- bly printed, and at least two job printing offices where the work would have been done as well, and; more cheaply, than in any place he could find in New York—but he probably didn't know this—the knowledge of- some people is limited—and so the order for dancing cards was sent down to New York by Messenger Lock wood"' to be executed there. On Saturday Lockwood called for them but they were not finished. Not being able to call again he arranged to have them sent to him at the Grand Central Depot, by special messenger, a few moments prior to his train leaving for Norwalk, but the printing failed to connect with him at the New York depot as arranged. Thinking they must have been sent direct to Norwalk by Adams Express, as he had at first advised J.Arthur to have it done, Loc^aeod took his train and in due time reported he^e late Saturday night, minus the Ball orders of danc-cing. Well, to say that J. Arthur turned scarlet to the roots of his hair, isolating it mildly; still, he hoped against fear, that by Monday morning they would turn up here by mail, by express or somehow. Monday morning came with its genial and glorious sunshine, but it was all lost on Pinneo. He hied him after Lockwood and had him hasten to Gothum and return on the first possible train with the derelict printing. In vain Messenger Loqkwood protested that all New York was shut up and the great city on a,legalized holiday:. b,end-ey.., kft&y and go he did, ancTas "fie* expected, found the printing ofliee locked as securely as the Toflfbs. Lock-wood hied him then to the nearest drug store, and consulted the directory to find where this exasperating printer might resicle, determined to chase him to his lair, for, was not the ball to come off that very night ? But the elusive jobber in ink was .so inconsequential tnat his name and residence had no place in New York's great directory. So back home poor Lockwood wended his weary way, in a mood by no means pleasant. He had lost his holiday, missed his New Year's dinner with his family and, most texusperating of all, nad rushed to the train under the lash of J. Arthur's imperative commands, in his Sunday clothes, and left his commutation ticket .it home ;iu his every- [ day suit and had been forced to pay his lull single trip fares down and up, to nis utter disgust and loss of temper, tie reached Norwalk late Monday afternoon. l'he tennis show was to come off in a few-brief hours at the great Armory enclosure and no programmes and orders of dancing printed ! Here was a fix. but J. Arthur thinks quick— when forced to —and he then rusned after one and then another of the Hour office force,—its printers were sent for and double-quicked to the job room and the type was soon sec, the form dumped on the press and the orders went flying from its paper-devouring maw like snowflakes in a squall, but, *adly for Pinneo, at holiday, double lates for the labor. The "thing was did," however, and«lhe agony over, i'ne three days' fearful perspiration'be-gan to dry on J. Arthur's broad and expansive brow, extending as it does from eyebrows to the nape of the neck. Had his better angel of good sense made one of those "few and far-between" visits to his cranium and at the outset suggested taking his printing to the Hour office, he would have saved several dollars in cash and himself the narrowest escape of his life from mental paralysis and physical nervous prostration. But it is not every bookseller and dispenser of cards and slate pencils, any more than other people, who can always " be wise in time " and thus save the resulting vexations sure to follow upon egregious blundering. Thus much by way of the "joke " over which all the town is roaring in derisive laughter. But is there not a serious side to the misfit exploit ? Connected with the five printing offices here, that could have satisfactorily printed his orders, where Mr. Pinneo lives and tries to do business, there must be all told, not less than one hundred persons. How would he fare should all these people adopt Mr. Pinneo's code of business principles and conduct, and whenever they desired to purchase a book, cards or stationery, hould boycott the Pinneo store and send by messengers to New York for all such supplies, and worse even than that, as we are told, should follow his example in advising others not to have their printing done in Norwalk offices ? Should this example, thus thoughtlessly set by Mr. Pinneo, as we would fain believe, be followed, how soon would it be before a red flag and tiie shutters would be put up in front of his pretty little store? No, no, young friend, "support your own;" your own town's merchants and mechanics and citizens, in all the requirements of our daily life is the wisest philosophy and the best business morals. Try it, and tesfrit for yourself, young frieud, and you will never regret the change in your suicidal course. And not to Mr. Pinneo alone, but to every other citizen of Norwalk who thus inconsiderately acts, but desires to prosper himself and see his town prosper and business boom and our tradesmen thrive, we say, adopt and practice the doctrine in all local business concerns of—" SUPPORT YOUR OWN."

Position, / •••/> .y K-'i LONDON, Jan. 4.—The official statement , ": issued to the Cunard Company by Capt. Ferguson of the Gallia, regarding the; charge of deserting the Umbria while in distress, states that on approaching the , Umbria he saw a steamer near by blowing v off steam and the Umbria lying on tho , water like a duck, while his own ship ; was rolling heavily. ?; On reading the signal, "shaft broken," ]; he consulted with his own chief engineer, who, knowing the appliances on board . the Umbria, and being intimately acquainted with Chief Engineer Tomlinson, . as indeed the captain was himself, having;; sailed with him in the Mediterranean, he\ felt satisfied, from the next signal,.: "ready to proceed tomorrow," that the Umbria was in no danger whatever, especially as he knew that there were provisions on board enough to last some weeks longer both for passengers and / crew. Captain Ferguson had then to consider his own position, with the prospect of ; easterly weather leaving him short of coal should he expend a considerable! part of-what he had standing by the Umbria for.: one, or possibly two, days. Also considering that the Umbria had been bfoken down since the previous Friday, and yet. that there was no danger apparent, he considered that she was in a fair way to meet all the steamers crossing to or from.: New York, and as the weather, although unfit at that moment for the transfer of t passengers without risk, still showed^ signs of moderating, he decided that 'it was his duty to hold on his course and to inform all westbound vessels of the position of the Umbria. He sighted one of. these vessels within the next 10 hours and gave her the position of the Umbria. Capt. Ferguson's previsions of the weather was justified, for within 30Qtor 400 miles of the Irish coast he encounter-; er a severe gale from the eastward, with a-J head sea, and was thus delayed 20 hours i before reaching Queenstown. The directors of the Cunard company * ; hold Capt. Ferguson quite free from blame and say he was thoroughly justified ; in his action. NO WAR ON THE BORDER. Geu.

Ayres, the station 3-'^ agent at Brighton, near Sacramento, is the most remarkable criminal mystery California has known for years. The fact J that nearly all her money and jewelry was found in the burned ruins of her house Mj| led to the theory that in a despondent gj| mood Bhe had committed suicide. The railroad detectives, however, adhere to 0$ the muSrder theory and have arrested in Oakland Southern Pacific Engineer Geo. ' ^ Jefferis, who was married to Miss Ayres last July, although he has a wife and two children in Oakland. |f w ^ It seems he spent one night with his wife and the next with the Brighton station agent, thus having a girl on each end of his run. There are several suspicious circumstances connecting him with the gp murder but not positive evidence. It is ijgjff known that Jefferis and Miss Ayres bad frequent quarrels and that the day before Bhe was murdered she received a dispatch, presumably from Jefferis, that worried her greatly. She told several friends tha^ she was afraid of Jefferis.

The Ways of Advertisers*
Why advertisers select certain seasons
of the year, prepare their copy is
certain ways and publish in one paper
01* another—sometimes1 in many and
often in one only—is a/mystery to some
people. But the advertisers themselves
understand the matter perfectly. They
start from the fcasis of the pocket, to
which they frequently return to test
their theories. There is but one purpose
in Advertising, and the advertiser
alone can discover where, in what manner
and how far he can be aided by
printer's ink. We cannot deny that
we are gratified by the favor with which
advertisers seem to regard the GAZETTE.
As we have already said, the advertisers
know best why they thus specially
favor the GAZETTE. They also know
that it is not because of "cut rates,"
for in this respect, the GAZETTE never
attempts to compete with those who
are accommodating enough to take advertising
at the bare cost of setting the
Value of the Telephone.
Every day we learn to appreciate
more and more the great value of the
telephone. It saves us much time and
a great deal of travel. Recently a New
Jersey man was called up at his place
of business and told to hurry home. He
responded and found a son awaiting
his arrival. He returned tQ the store
and a few minuti s later was sent for
again. On reaching home a second son
was presented to him. Feeling highly
tickled he went again to his work and
had hardly resumed his occupation before
the third son was announced.
Hanging the reoeiver in the hook he
turned away with a weary air, only to
be called up again in a few moments lo
receive the gratifying intelligence that
a fourth had been added to his household.
His disgust was so emphatic
that he ordered his clerks not to answer
that telephone again if it rang all
day. If it had not been for the instrument,
however, imagine the shock in
his nerves when he arrived home to the
usual course of events to find all four
of those babies ready to welcome him.
This is why we say the telephone
should be appreciated, for no man
knowetu iu what day or hour, some
cverblessed Norwalk paterfatniles, may
be called up telephone, to have a
similar over-joyous message sweetly
whispered into his eager and expectant
ear. So we say, support the Norwalk
branch of the telephone system.
