It is now positively certain that Mr. Alvah Brainard, second selectman, and candidate on the citizen and democratic tickets, lost a great many friends when he got away from the party platform and against the wishes of the people, expressed in town meeting, and voted with Mr. Bent to restore Mr. Bromage to his former position of chief of police. One by one the old-liners were heard to say this morning when the decision leaked; out,; "that the mistake was made 16ng ago," and one office-holder is reported to have said, "From now on I am out of it. I am in the future going to take care of myself." Another who realizes that he cannot come back said, so it is reported, "We should be satisfied; we have had things our own way a longtime." The decision in brief: ;; 1. A constable can not resign after qualifying. FRATERNAL SOCIETIES. 'f,', Reverie, K. Roberts Intermezzo, "Cavalleria Rusti-cana" . . . /. . . . P.

The home .of Mr. and Mrs. John Carney on New King street was the scene of a very pleasant gathering Monday evening when the Thompson circle, C.

The party broke up about 11:30 p. m., leaving their best wishes with Mr. and Mrs. Carney. . ,. Some People Are Talking Seriously About It Gossip About the Chief of Police Muddle Which May and May Not Have Reached the Ears of Enfield Officials. Usually the cold weather brings to the fireside a number of men who have not met in months and usually the subject of conversation drifts from jokes played on men carrying sandwiches to sleeping horses or horses waking up sleepy people, and it is not altogether infrequent that these same men who gather weekly, to gather up the news, shift their topic to the dry and dull subject concerning Enfield politics. The engine house in the olden days was quite a rendezvous, the office of the village hotel sometimes was the center of attraction and at the present time it is not uncommon to see some of the old fogies getting at it again in both these places. Of course there is today no large self-heating stove with a large base and an iron rail around it to place the feet on when one tipped back the chair, but there is the old atmosphere and with it the hammer must come out, and always with anJuncertainty as to who it will hit. During the weeks which have recently opened up the season for these old fellows to get together, there has been a topic regarding which a little more than usual has been said. It's not certain whether the officials of Enfield know they are being talked about for it is almighty hard to get in on these secret sessions and spend an hour where there is much roasting and plenty of smoking of the other fellow's tobacco, but it is a reasonably sure bet that Edward Bromage knows that the police were coming into prominence just as he was taking leave of the office of chief of police. An old fellow the other night, not knowing anything about the police question, started in to tell what Deputy Sheriff Wilson had accomplished 25 years ago, and the vote for the sheriff when counted showed that he has today a good hold on the general police doings of the community. It is not altogether easy to follow the conversation for it's apt to shift with the smoke or from orders or a passing comment from the man who allows the others to_remain around the fireside, and he also, is able, so it is understood, to let fire as big a noise with his hamiiier as any other in the party. Some nights stories are told which should make Chappie Burgess envious, but it isn't certain that Chappie stays out as late as the other fellows; therefore it is very likely the stories regarding the police force are not known to him. Want of space and time to tell the story is always an argument against starting in, but having gone so far it would be unfair to pass unnoticed the Remarks of one man who is not given to saying very much but who usually sputters and goes along always speaking to every one no matter whether it's necessary to turn the head or not. Confidently speaking he was heard to remark: "The selectmen are bound to abide by the vote passed at the town meeting. Darn it, I've gone to Hartford myself and found out that there is no law by which a constable can resign— after he is elected, he can take his choice, serve or not serve." Then another duffer jumped in and said he thought the attachment onto the appropriation for pay of patrolmen was all right because he understood Mr. Bromage had gone to Hartford and found out—that if the town has a right to appropriate money it certainly has the right to say how it should be spent. Well, at this juncture all were in roars and Officer Hayden was not the furthest from enjoying the fun. The surprising story was when one fellow in the party spoke up and said, "I could have told you long ago that the legal matter was looked into." And it's been decided at more than one of these sessions that Enfield should have a commission form of government and ere this inside talk is published it wouldn't be surprising if Alvah Brainard was "seen," with the idea of pulling away from the whole police business and coming out with a good candidate for patrolman who doesn't hold any office in the town of Enfield. The more subscriptions you make to charities the more the people who drag the money out of you act as if they supported them. Have you seen Non-Steam? It Forewarned is forearmed. In case of accident or sudden illness you are forearmed if you have a telephone in your home. N-2-4t Enfield Christian Endeavor Union Elect Officers and Hold an Enjoyable and Helpful Service. .: / The 24 th annual meeting of the Enfield Christian Endeavor union was held in the United Presbyterian church Friday evening.

Bartlett, D. D., of the. Farmington Avenue Congregational church, Hartford, the speaker of the evening, delivered an eloquent address, taking for his subject, "A Real Endeavorer." His address was practical and helpful and was listened to with marked attention throughout. OBITUARY, Young. Mrs. Charles L. Young, aged 89, died at her home in Springfield, Saturday morning from old age and a complication of diseases.

PRESENTATION TO MEMBER OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE Robert S. Norton Receives Gift from" fill Brother Odd Fellows at Meeting jffj Held Monday Evening. f||I On Monday night lodge, Friendship gSs No. 56, I. O. O. F., demonstrated that it was rightly named, by showing how strong the tie of brotherly love has cemented the members ^ .i4» together. While it was a regular' meeting of the lodge, there were spe-cial features of unusual interest. A f -v >$4 roll-call was held during which a large number of members responded to their names when they were read by the secretary. The third degree was conferred in a very impressive manner, each officer showing a familiarity with his duties which proved his interest in the lodge work. The degree work was under the direction of James Slattery, P. G. The special feature of the evening and one which illustrated the beauty and strength of the tie which binds Odd Fellows together, was the presentation of a watch charm to Robert S. Norton as a token of appreciation of his services as a member and officer of the lodge, the presentation speech being made by Noble Grand Harry H. Woodward. Mr. Norton was so completely surprised and so deeply affected by the demonstration of friendship and good will that for some time he could not reply. In a few moments, however, he arose and thanked the members for their token of appreciation and esteem, saying that it would always serve to remind him of the happy occasion and the many pleasant hours spent in Friendship lodge. Visiting members were present from Long Island, N. Y.; Taunton, Springfield and Ipswich, Mass.; Saco, Me., and Hartford, and briefly spoke of the order and its work. The Rev. Thomas Tyrie spoke interestingly and with feeling in referring to the gift to Mr. Norton, paying tribute to the latter as a man and citizen of Hazardville, where he has lived nine years. Mr. Tyrie stated that Mr. Norton, who is about to remove to Middletown, would be greatly missed, not only in the lodge, but in the community where he had lived. During the degree work vocal selections, among which were "Face to Face," "The Palms," and "Nearer, My God, to Thee," were well rendered by John Weeder, accompanied on the piano by William Townson. Refreshments were served and a social hour spent after the lodge closed. •in '1 • 'Nil % -1 :! vi J ' ' '$ ANNUAL BARN DANCE • Casey.

They will hold a similar meeting next Sunday afternoon.
