I 4i3E IMeueiieiit ii all things; Neutral 11 notHiig. 1M 'M The Gazette has the largest circulation of any paper In Norwalk, And furnishes the lowest advertising tSj§ rates. ' ::*• •&§0 WgMMM fp rl <fer\ ; W ?.*&" Hint to Advertisers. r StV jjj§ lb 1 % ' * S|88§: ~C^ ^T. • ; ' ' I**'' ' it?:. te'T Thisis the way Mr. Emerson, 6f the • Ansonia Sentinel, and one of the bright- -:ti est and most enterprising men connect-f §?| ed with the Connecticut press, puts it: ^ " It is the season of the year when trade is dull. People are out of work, ' > or are working on short time, and for • that reason they are spending but little money and that in the most economical 1 manner. Consequently the storekeepers— the grocers, the dry goods, the olothing, the shoe dealers and others _ > feel the relaxing of business, and each ia striving to get his share of the trade. / For that reason, therefore, the enter- U j prising merchant will pay more atten- •7;| ] tion to his advertising. He will not '. - only keep his advertisement running, but be will strive to make it more at-tractive to the people whose trade he is n seeking. He will introduce bargains j- if he has them and draw trade by letting the people know.it. There is but little j money spent at this Reason of the year, and the aim of the merchant is to get what there is. • i, To stop advertising at a Beason of the ^ ''*• year when trade is dull is the height of absurdity. No merchant will take in the sign over his door during the summer because there is little trade. Then why should he withdraw his sign from ii the newspapers, which is seen a thou-sand times where the other is once. The writer once knew a prominent New- & York dry goods dealer who did his t heaviest advertising in the country | newspaper during the summer. We i asked him* one day, why he did so. ; His reply was : "Because trade is dull Y everywhere and I want Till I can get. In the spring and fall and winter I have all I can take care of here at home. In the summer the country merchants take out their advertisements from the local weeklies and I put mine in. It would astonish them if they knew what a heap of trade I ' take away from them by that method. But it's none of my business if they ; don't want it; I do, and I get it." There is a brilliant truth in this which country merchants would do well to ponder." • /" Banks and their Customers. V Nothing conduces more to a general sense of security in tight times like these, says the Washington Post, than the maintenance of mutually helpful relations between the banks and their customers.. Their duties are reciprocal* The obligation is not all on one side. . The sagacious business man, having confidence in the honest management of his bank, keeps np his deposits. To that extent he contributes to the bank's assets. He fully appreciates the danger of that nervous timidity which impels some i»eople to withdraw their funds and hoard them elsewhere. He thoroughly understands the importance of doing by the banks as he would be done by, of strengthening their credit as he would strengthen his own, of manfully standing by them and extending to them all the moral and financial support that he legitimately and prudently may. So much for the customer. If ho does this he does well. £he solvency of his bank is thereby the better assured, but the party of the other part has also a duty to perform. The banks themselves are under certain obligations in this, matter. They are bound to make some return for the unabated confidence and loyalty of the men'with whom they deal. . ;When a financial storm Is at its height and bills are to be paid out of slow collections, then it is that the banks may be of most service to their customers. It is when a business man needs help that he ought to have it. It is no relief to him to borro# money that he doesn't want. It is when he is hard pressed that he requires assistance. Hence the banks must bear in <YH mind that there are favors to be given as well as to be taken. They are always ready to accept deposits, but this is not their only province. Were such the case they would be as useless as so many safety deposit vaults. i:f They should be as ready to let their money out as to take it in whenever the customer who asks their aid is as worthy of trust as the bank of which he asks it. There should be no hoggishness in these perilous times. .It is unfair, it is unwise, it is liable to put men in jeopardy who, with a helping hand, would come out all right. ~ . There must be -reciprocity. The banks must do their part towards easing their customer^ out of difficulties. It is not enough that the customers ease the banks. Let both do what they can to weather the storm, and the chances 'of shipwreck will be minimized." Of the Norwalk banks it may be truly said that they have manifested as great a desire to aid their customers as to fortify themselves and their depositors and the public have unlimited confidence in their ability and desire to continue to do both.

Rylance, rector of St. Mark's Episcopal Church, New York underwent an operation for appendicitis and although it proved successful from a medical standpoint^ his condition causes the gravest apprehension to his physicians and friends.

Of what use it is no one lias been able to learn. It catches seeds and grape-stones and other troublesome things, and when it has done so it becomes inflamed and must be removed to save the patient's life. Within the past tfew years this malady has became remarkably frequent. , , i V?? -- ... Wants to Know, Again. -; - EDITOR GAZETTE :—Evidently "C. P. T." has never read the City Charter, or if he has, certainly doei not comprehend* its restrictive and beneficial features in regard to municipal expenditures. Under the old borough system any gang of hoodlums could be drummed up to attend a borough meeting called to make appropriations, and by a vocal howl, made in every known tongue, pass appropriations for anything and for any amount. CJ. P. T. has no doubt seen and heard men vote for questionable appropriations, under this viscious viva voce system, who were not in fact, residents of the borough. Under pur better and more modern city charter, all appropriations are to be voted by ballot, and any scheme once voted down cannot be •started afresh and voted for again as soon as a sufficient number can be huddled together to carry it, as has constantly been done boroughwise. Again, will C. P. T. halt on surmises and tell us how it is possible for our city charter to work any worse for tax payers, than the borough system has ? 1^4 Vox Popuiii. .Bates Bros.

Adams, the famous clown and pantomimist, in his marvellous stilt act. He is known the world over as "Pico the clown," and "Funny Adams.'' Mr. Adams was born at Rams-gate, England, January 28, 1856, and is a son of Charles H. Adams, a well-known clown and comedian, and Mary A. Adams, nee Mary A. Cooke, of the famous Cooke family. He served an apprenticeship of eight years with Stephen Ethair, the great European acrobat and gymnast. He has been in this country since 1870, and has been seen in all the principal cities and towns, both in circus ring and on the stage. Wherever he has appeared the press and public have lavished praise on his performance. His work on the stiltb is simply wonderful and in his famous character of "Humpty Dumpty" he has no equal and is a whole show in himself. This season Mr. Adams has been engaged at a large salary to head Bates Bros, new "Humpty Dumpty," which is soon to take the road. The company will be under the direction of W. S. Bates and J. B. Austin and will be first class in every respect. The company will consist of 35 people together with a band and orchestra and nearly a car load of trick scenery. Some of the very best theatres have been booked, the opening night being at Mt. Vernon, N. Y. The third performance will be given at the Town Hall, Stamford, Monday August 7, and from there they go to Danbury August 8, Winsted Au-fust 9, Great Barrington August 10, 'ittsfield August 11, Turner's Falls August 12.

Main's Circus. The city was filled yesterday by one of the largest crowds that has been seen on the streets for a long time. They came to see a first-class circus, and were in no way disappointed. The parade in the morning was fully up to all expectations; the wagons, chariots and cages were all new, and the horses some of the finest ever seen in a parade; The big tent was filled in the afternoon, and the people saw the most varied, complete and difficult performance ever shown in a circus ring. The closing with the Roman hippodrome made the crowd go wild with excitement, and during the entire afternoon and evening performances there was nothing said or done to which exception could be taken.—Minneapolis Messenger.

Some weeks since O. L. Bassett placed several annealed steel, copper-covered lightning-rods on the mansion of Mr. J. M. Craft, at Ridgefield, locating the ground end about 150 feet from the house. During Wednesday's storm the house was struck by lightning, and the fluid was carried over the rods to the ground end, where it knocked down two men and killed a horse. Mr. Bassett accounts for the fact that the two men were not killed when the horse was "knocked out," as being very simple. They were, he thinks, lightning-rod agents. Saved the Soot. The soot in the chimney of Ben. Bechtel's house, on Cross street, caught fire this morning and threatened destruction to—the soot. Ben is a fireman and did battle with the flames alone, not caring to call out the fire department. He succeeded after herculean efforts in saving—the soot. Sub rom, the flames were extinguished with two tomato cans full of water. » Sails To-day. Sjplkeif Isaac W. Brooks of Torring-ton sails to-day, for a trip to Europe, taking the Bretagne of the French line. An Italian I-evee^ Attorney AUred 3|5nranee Austin, who returned from Norwich last night, held an Italian levee at his office in the Masonic building, this morning, and his leading guests "paid the freight." The first to receive; his august attention as he sat in his judicial ermine as justice of the peace of the commonwealth of Connecticut, was no less a personage than George Queen, who has been in this country long enough to understand the King's english and do a sue cessful business in working the highways. A very serious charge was preferred against this Queen, that of an aggravated assault on his married sister, Mrs. Mima Parillo. At the request of Messrs. Hurlbutt and Walsh, the former representing Queen, and the latter the State of Connecticut, the justice adjourned a further hearing in the case until Saturday next. Queen, who was accompanied by his, as the justice expressed it, "mighty pretty niece," then left the room, followed by his sister, who looks- very much like him, and is also very good looking. The next party to address the judge was Attorney Walsh who appeared for Mr. M. Barillo, an Italian who is charged with selling intoxicants without a license. Mr. Walsh stated that prosecuting attorney Honnecker could not be present this morning, and prose, cute the case, and asked for an adjournment until this afternoon at 3 o'clock. The judge good naturedly granted the request. At this juncture Attorney Gray came in and informed the Judge that he had two Italians under the "wing of the the law,"said "sunny sons" having on Sunday last, as alleged, committed an assault on one "Felix" and also a breach of the peace contrary to" the law in such cases made and provided, near the Rocks, so called. Their names sounded something like Regerrio Bologna and Alberti Skilletto. Mr. Gray stated that the prisoners wished to plead guilty and asked that he treat them with as great financial leniency as his pardoning spirit might dictate. The Justice put on a wise but at the same time Sympathetic look, and after a moment's thought decided to set the prisoners free, on the payment of the: costs which as he figured it amounted to $19.66. Messrs. Bologna and Skilletto thanked him in Italian and immediately commenced to gather together the necessary coin with which to liquidate their obligations to the court. The levee was still in "session" when the GAZETTE reporter left, George Wend ling at the time being the party who was addressing the court. The reporter, as he went out of the door, heard-himr-say something about jurisprudence and the profit on an eight cent loaf of bread, and since learns that his remarks had the effect of breaking up the levee. ; - • ., - Tax Collector's Sale. ^ VTOTICE is hereby given th&t; the under-signed, Collector of Taxes, under and by virtue of a certain tax warrant, duly executed and signed by proper authority and directed to the undersigned, commanding hi*" to levy and collect of FBEDEBICK A.
