The carousal was purchased by Messrs. Adams & Reilly and shipped J Port Chester, with, as it is now clai1^ a bill of $300 besides the freight o: same amounting to about $44. The ca rousal was released by the agent of the Consolidated company to Adams & Reilly on the payment of the freight. The former owner of the carousal threatened to bring suit against the road for the $300 and it is understood his claim was paid by the company, who thereupon placed an attachment on the carousal as above. Mr. Horace Dann receipted for the claim, and it is thought the matter will be adjusted today. ^.<ii : Run Away From the Horned At South Norwaik on Sunday the attention of Harry Piatt was attracted to a youngster who seemed to be lost. He questioned the boy as to where he lived, but failed to elicit any definite information and he'turned him over to the care of Chief Vollmer. The Chief learned from the.lad that his name was "Oakey" or something that sounded like it. During the questioning Chas. Oakes came along and thought that he recognized the lad as one who lived on the Benedict Farm in East Norwaik, and he accompanied him to the house where the boy said he lived, but found that he was mistaken as to his identity on reaching there. As he was returning to South Norwaik with the boy, he met another lad who recognized him and called out "Halloa Oakey." It was then learned that "Oakey" was an inmate of the Children's Home, and had run away while over here with other boys of the Home to attend church. He was taken back to the Home. "Hubb" Blakeslee's DOBS. Deputy-sheriff Toner, Saturday evening, arrested Hubbard Blakeslee, on a warrant charging him with keeping two unlicensed dogs- On visiting the place it was found that, instead of two dogs, Blakeslee was harboring at least six canines, two of them females. Blakeslee claimed that he had entered into an agreement, (so a GAZETTB reporter is informed,) with the Selectmen some time ago, that his taxes were to be liquidated in lieu of his keeping a section of the road near his place in repair. This morning a reporter called at the Selectmen's office and was informed by Selectman Daskam that this was a fact, and that the agreement was first made when ex-SelectmanWheeler was a member of the board. Further investigation in the matter discloses the fact that no such agreement was ever made by Mr. Wheeler, in so far anyhow as it related to the registration of Mr. Blakeslee's canines. It is admitted by Mr. Daskam that the dogs are not registered, but in defence of Mr. Blakeslee, he says that gentleman did not receive the same notification as did other owners of unregistered dogs. He further told tho reporter that said Blakeslee called to see him, (Daskam,) and he told him .that it was all right. By what authority the Selectmen have the right to exclude one man's canines from registration in preference to another man's will probably be brought out at the trial of the case this afternoon. .'A- A Railroad Sued. jfv?* BRIDGEPORT, Conn., "Aug, 28.—Suit was brought for; $5,000/against" the New York, New Haven and Iliirtford railroad by the adtoinistratbr of the estate of F. :C.

B. hit the nail on the head. As to continuing to lay the large main all the way down to our distributing reservoir, it would bo folly, as it now requires that size at Grupe's to fill the 12 inch pipe discharging at the Borough. If the pressure is double and the • area of the main 113 inches, it will equal 226 inches, which will require pipe 17 inches in diameter, which we havn't got. If we put our outlet pipe of 16 inches into the storage reservoir, which is equal to 201 inches, we shall receive here but a fraction more water than at present. To supply a 16 inch pipe at our Borough reservoir, we need a pipe at Grtipes' of not less than 23 inches, 24 being better, as the supply pipe here will discharge double the amount of "water into the distributing reservoir that the larger pipe at Grupes' oan supply as there is four times the pressure at this end. Had we not better consider these simplest facts in hydraulics ? To have the main the same size.through-out, would, I fear, require some ''hair valves" or other contrivance to force the water down. Let us intelligently consider what is best to be done, and then promptly act, under the guidance of some thoroughly practical and skilled hydraulic engineer. It seems to me we have had enough of inexperienced and boys' play. I hope there is no African in the fence, and hope none will be sly enough to again slip in there, as our Borough tax payers have already been sufficiently" punished for our past folly anent our water works. w We ought to have a main feeding direct into the Borough: pipes, without emptying into our Prospect Hill reservoir at all, to provide against accidents and trouble to consumers. But let . every tax payer be present at Wednesday evening's Bor-roUgh meeting and there 'consider and calmly act upon this very serious matter.' K -' "A. O. A* . "Three Jacks."

As is usual on their periodical visits to this city, they "punished" (that is what they say in Norwaik) considerable liquor and were not in a very sober condition when ready to return. They drove through Stamford at a furious rate and two of them were thrown out of the vehiole on Noroton Hill. One of them received a bad cut on the head.—Advocate. Black's Pension. Apropos of the frequent suggestion that the pension of General John C. Black would be a good one for Hoke Smith to try his pruning knife on it should be noted that General Black holds his pension by grace of a special act of Congress. It was in his petition presented to Congress asking for his pension that Mr. Black described himself as a '-physical wreck," and which his enemies, after he oame to the head of the Pension office and began to fight other applications for pensions, altered to "mental, moral and physical wreck." Try It. An exchange says: Advertising is the spice of business life—the royal road to success. Every merchant believes in it, and practices it more or less. Those who advertise on the most approved plan, use the newspaper, by which means their invitations for patronage are conveyed directly into the homes' of the purchasers: others advertise by means of chalk upon the sidewalks or the heads of barrels, and while this method has the advantage of being cheap, it does not possess the quality of being penetrating. In fact, people nowadays have their eyes looking up and down, so many of these crude signs are not seen. If advertising is worth doing at all it is worth doing right. The newspaper is the proper channel. Try it. Creditable to Head and Heart. Some days since the - GAZETTE announced that Miss Jennie Fitch had been compelled to relinquish a lucrative position in Denver, whither she a few years since was driven on account of threatened lung trouble, and return home to Norwaik to care for her helpless mother, stricken down with an incurable malady. On Friday last the invalid mother was tenderly placed on the through Washington express, and is now comfortably established in modest apartments at the Capital, her daughter, through the kind personal efforts of Patent Commissioner John S. Seymour, as it is surmised, having secured stenographic and type-writing employment to be done at her apartments, so that she may personally care for the invalid, and sufficiently remunerative for her own and her slowly dying mother's support. This considerate kindness shown these needy and deserving persons, is most creditable alike to the head and heart of the benefactor. Amusements. OPERA HOUSE. .- Of Charles T. Ellis who will appear at the Opera House next Thursday evening, the Dramtic Times says: Charles T. Ellis is a remarkable German comedian, and it is a pity New York has not seen more of him. He sings well has a graceful carriage and dances to perfection. His play is called "Count Casper," and, like all German dialect plays, is full of good humor, has some striking situations, and moreover is acceptable.
