The Typical Society GlrU One is often ignorant of the existence of foUDK Kiris in the houses of one’s friends until by chance they are revealed at a matinee of the opera, sitiin}? demurely in the family box, or at their summer homes, an horseback, or playing at tennis on the lawn. The daticing class, t:ontr<jlled by a bevy of matrons who carefully select tlie names sent out upon invitations to belong to it, is her training ground for polite society. At these classes, meeting in the tftemoon or evening once a week, the mothenssit around the halls while the boys tnd girls go through the exact forms to be observed in the ballroom of the future. When the young person is ready to be in-trodaced into society, the mother, as often as not, issues cards for a general afternoon teception of her friends. Gowned in simplest home dress, liiyh at the throat and of pure white, tlie debutante st^inds beyond her mother a t the chic-f entrance of the drawing room. Behind her. piled upon tables or the piano, is seen a verit;;ble hecatomb of llowerssent in by frit nds to celebrate the hour. Kach ;;uest. ai.er speaking to the mother or ciiaperuiie, is then mentioned by n.ame to the tit ’-.inante, who bows or curtesies as slie lias been taught to do. Later in the afternoon, when the crowd thins out, the girl, surroiuideil by her par-t ic a la r s e to f friends, di'i-'lays in-i- flowers, her gown, her new rinii or <lu' s; ring of pearls presented by a g(»od papa. A dinner follows, a t which her mother presides and aroand which the same younj; peitple aasemble. Here she is queen of t he feast, and amid flowers and lights and music and kind words no wonder that the vista of society seems to her like fairylan«l. From that day on she is rarely seen iu public without her parents, or one of them, or a fitting ■nbstitate.—Mrs. Bar ton Harrison in La~ diM’ Home JoornaL ^.01. a ........I lo r liiv a lld ii. Rice is such a harmless looking food, with such a r» putation for wholesotneness, so seemingly "cliildlike an<l bland,” that few people realize it is actually a food for out of door wf>rkers and for people who live active lives, uot for sedentary folk, and only rarelj' for an invalid. A misguided creature who fe<l during an unhealthy summer on “ plain” l>oiled rice, with plentiful butter, oiled by its heat, a person vi ho took almost no exercise and who suffered severely from the heat, was astonished to learn that his diet was aggravating the liver trouble and .stomachic irritation, and that his “ harmless” food had been suitable only for a railroad “navvy” or a stevedore. Rice with butter is undoubtedly a real food and nourishing, since a whole people live on it and work hard on it in the lands where cholera flourishes. Rice, in a time of precaution when people are advised to watch their diet and avoid indigestible food, is not nearly so useful as boiled flour. —Philadelphia Ledger. “ B o o k ” M u s lin . A correspondent asks, “Won’t you oblige by saying why the word ‘book’ was applied to muslin?” The idea th a t book muslin derives its name from the peculiar manner in which it is made up for sale, namely, folded in yards, and each yard doubled in again on itself in such a way that the process of openin^i it strongly re.sembles the opening of a book, is ingenious but incorrect. The word has its origin in “ liuke’’ (which was erroneously written “ Book” ), the district in India where it was first made. It was uot until 17»0 th a t the nmnufacture of British muslins l)ecame a rival to those in India. Imlia muslins are still famous for >r«Mer>’iiig their whiteness. — Brooklyn 15K K L I N B R E V I T I E S . What a j;orj(eous transformation in the foliai^e IS just taking place. Keep in mind the sidewalk to the depot. Its got to come, you know. Mrs. K. C. W’oodrufT left Tue.sday for a visit with friends in Woodstock. II. H. Rootain who has occupied W. II. Risley’s house near the mill, will move to Bristol Monday. The scholars of our graded school are rehearsing an interesting program for next Friday, Columbus Day. Let the parents of the children particularly, make an effort to attend. At the Democratic senatorial convention held in East Hartford yesterday, our townsman Mr. Earl Cooley received the nomination by a unanamous vote for senator from this district. The slight frosts recently have not effect the flowers that were out of doors. The gay salvia, zinias, and even the foliage plants are looking as finely as earlier in the season despite the cold, chill air. To Rent—The Mrs. William B. Pierce’s place on Berlin etst.er * The following persons from Berlin attended the installation services of Rev. Magee Tratt at Kensington, Tuesday : Dea, Leonard Hubbard (delegate) Mr. and Mrs. B. K. Field, Mrs. John Webber, Mrs. Geo. Sage, Miss Louise Warren. There are rumors current, coming from what are considered most reliable sources, that parties from New York State are negotiating for the purchase of the old Blair property, with a view of rebuilding the dam and once more starting this excellent mill pri\-ilege into life. There are rumors current, coming from what are considered most relable sources, that parties from N. V. State are negotiating for the purcqase of the old Blair property, with a view of rebuilding the dam and once more starting this excellent mill privilege into life. Huber Bushnell was run into Tuesday night just this side of Henry Hollister’s, by an unknown team that was driving like fury, and thrown from his buggy to the ground. His face and head look as though he had been having an argument with one of the celebrated prize fighters. A. B. Goodrich is having a covered stoop, build the entire width of the front of his store. This not only improves the appearance of the building but will afford a good place for the display of goods. He is to extend the improvements by changing his covered driveway into a kitchen and sittingroom. Bertha, the little three-year-old daughter of Cieo. Rich, of Beckley Quarter, was taken with con\Tilsions early Tuesday morning, and died Thursday afternoon at five o’clock. Everything that human and medical aid could accomplish was done to alleviate the little one’s sufferings, and save its life, but without avail. A meeting of the executive committee of the V. I. .S. was held Tuesday evening, Oct. n th , to listen to the report of the sidewalk committee, who was instructed to ascertain the cost of concrete and flag pavement for our village walks, it being the desire of the society to make permanent improvements of this nature year by year, in proportion to their means. .\t the meeting of the Ecclesitical society of the Congregational church Monday evening, reports of officers were heard and the election of the following to office for the coining year were made : Society’s committee, B. K. Field ; treasurer and clerk, Francis I.)eming ; warden of the .South cemeterj-. Wm. Bulkeley ; warden of the Briilge cemetery. H. F. Damon. Rev. Chas. II. Dickinson of Wallingford, occupied the pulpit at the Congregational church Sunday, in exchange with the pastor. His discourse in the morning was from the story of the Prodigal Son, the words of the text being “ This, my son.” Mr. Dickinson presides over one of the largest and wealthiest parishes there are in the conference, and next to Dr. Cooper of New Britain, is the senior pastor, although quite a young man, in years of settlement. Miss Mary Wilcox and Miss Bessie Wilcox who have been visiting at F. L. Wilcox’s for the past month, have returned to their home in New York, taking with them Mrs. Norris Peck. We were most glad to welcome Mrs. Peck among us this summer, aijfl may her life be prolonged in health and happiness to return often. Thus the many pleasant and familiar faces that have lent charm and numbers to our community the past summer are retiring to other scenes, refreshed in mind and body. Those who were fortunate enough to be at church Sunday morning were well paid by the singing of Miss Elizabeth King of Hartford, who was visiting friends in town. The lady has a voice of remarkable sweetness and purity combined with a rare distinctness of expression, and in her first solo, “ O Lord Correct me”, accompanied by our very able organist, Miss May Hall, she displayed a perfect command of a range of notes and quality of voice that few can equal or excel. The audience were charmed. Francis Deming and wife were the recipients of a friendly visit from a number of the members of the Grange Tuesday night that took the form of a “ house warming.” The object of the visit was to give him a surprise in his new house. This was done most effectually as Francis was up town when the invasion was made. An unusually pleasant evening was passed—in fact the evening extended into the morning—with music, singing and refreshments. As will be seen by reference to the church services. Rev. Dr. Baird of New Vork, Sec’y of the A. M. A. will occupy the pulpit at the Congregational church. The reverend gentleman preaches in New Britain Sunday morning and Mr. Clayton exchanges with him in the evening, so that our people may have the opportunity of hearing him. There should be an effort made to give him a large audience. Let everybody attend church Sunday evening. There is to be an entertainment at East Berlin next week for the purpose of raising funds to put a little new life, if possible, into the Library association, and start it into working order. Through the personal efforts of W. W. Mildrum, it has been kept np for a number of years past. The entertainment will be select and first-class in every respect. Berlin people should remember what substantial aid the East Berlin residents give this part of the town when any local object is under consideration, and should respond in a hearty manner to this most worthy call. Give them an illustration of what true reciprocity means. See posters for dates, price of admission, etc. As the evenings begin to lengthen and the presence of the early fall fro.sts put a sufii-cient sharpness in the air to make a seat before a little tire on the hearth preferable, to one on the porch, it is peculiar what an at-trai tion there is, a magnetism almost for some, to congregate around the stove at the village store and discuss the various local matters, particularly tho.se incidental to an election. Berlin is not an exception to this old, time-honored custom and habit, as may be readily observed by a visit to any of the stores after the lamps are lit and the evening fire started. The old stand of Mr. Cialpin's seems to be one of the favored resorts for these evening gatherings, for an interchange of local and other news. ( >ccasionally some of the older boys will fall into- a reminescent mood, when old memories and old associations of days lang sine are revived, the days “when we were boys." There is a certain mellowness, as it were, a peculiar charm connected with the old stories, told and retold almost nightly around the stove in a village country store, that is to be found at no other time or place. Let for instance Lafe Gladding, Noah Smith, Weather Bennett, W. A. Riley, Dr. Gillin, and many others, all with either a chew of their favorite tobacco, or one of Galpin’s choice cigars, get around the stove and there is a review of the past and present, that to the younger portion of the rising generation at least, is most interesting.

Sunday, Oct. 9th, preaching at 10.45 by the pastor, Rev. Thomas Clayton. Sunday School at 12 o’clock. Junior society at 4.30. Y. P. S. C. E. meeting at 6.30. Rev. Dr Baird of New York, secretary of the A. M. A., will conduct the evening service at 7.30. This is an unusual opportunity for the people of our congregation, and we hope a large audience will assemble to hear Dr. Baird. Prayer meeting on Thursday evening at 7.30. All are cordially invited to these services. The Fall meeting of the Central Conference of Congregational churches will meet at Plantsville on Tuesday next, at 10 a. m. The Rev. S. H. Sandwell of New Britain, will preach the sermon, and Rev. Thomas Clayton will present a memorial on the Rev. A. H. Hall, late pastor of the Centre Church, of Meriden, so well known and beloved by Berlin people. Eight delegates will be elected by the church to attend the conference, but it is hoped that many more will try and go as the Plantsville people will make it very pleasant for all, and the programme is an interesting and unusually good one.

E A S T B E R L IN E CH O E S . The East Berlin Banjo club have been having frequent rehearsals for the concert, which is to be given some day next week for the benefit of the society, for the promotion of physical culture, so energetically advocated and pushed forward by Miss Johnson. Miss Mabel Good returned to New York last Tuesday, after a week’s visit with her sister Mrs. Budd. Her stay was a short one but it is hoped she will return in the fall, and take part in the opera which is to be given by the East Berlin Choral society. At a meeting of the E. B. C. .S. it was decided to re-commence rehearsals of the opera “ The Sorcerer,” as soon as possible. E. A. Frink will again be musical director, and it is hoped that it will prove as great a success, as Patience proved last year. W. L. Atwater of the B. I. B. Co., accepted an invitation from Nathan Hall of Cobalt, to a coon and rabbit hunt last Tuesday evening. They started out at 9 o'clock p.m., returning at I a.m. with the result of four rabbits and one coon. Nathan Hall is not only a sportsman but a genial and capital host, as Atwater can testify. He speaks enthusiastically of the hospitally he received, and the good time he had. \V. Fogette had a sharp attack of the chills last Tuesday, but is better now. Mrs. and Miss May Fogette attended the wedding at Westfield, of their friend Miss Anner Cornwell to Arthur Birdsey. At which wedding Miss May acted as bridesmaid. F. F. Miller of the engineering department of the B. I. B. Co is now settled in East Berlin, as his wife and child came from Montreal last Saturday. Mrs. Smith, the aunt of Mrs. Miller also came with her. We hope that our Canadian cousins will like our Connecticut \-illage. H. Dowd has a good cinder footpath laid down from the depot in a westerly direction, coming out opposite Hubbard’s store, which is a great convenience to the public, and much appreciated. K E N S IN G T O N . The next meeting of the \\'. C. T. U. will be held at the house of Mrs. Frank Stevens. Mrs. John Miner and Miss M^gie Miner of South Hoboken, were the guests of Mrs. Jason Graham last week. Mr. and Mrs., Theron Upson have removed to Hartford, to the regret of their many friends here. Several members of the local W. C. T. U. have been in attendance at the state Convention at Norwich this week. Preparations for the observance of Columbus Day are being completed.' The public exercises to be held at Grange hall, Thursday evening, October aotb, are to be conducted bv the West l.ane, l.edge and I’ond sch<K»ls. At the several school houses there will be appropriate e.xercises some part of the day Kri-day, at which the raising of the new ll.igs will be an impressive feature. J. C. Lincoln is soon to erect a hotel in the rear of his feed store. E. S. Kilby has already begun the foundation of a tenement house just west of 1 aylor \ Kilby’s store, and more cottages will be built in the near future. The Envelope factory is progressing, and will be ready to be occupied January ist. ('harles Phillips new house is almost completed. The chimney of the chapel which has needed attention for so long has been repaired. The United W'orkers recently gave a sociable at the chapel in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Pratt. A very p l e ^ n t evening was passed with recitations, music and games. Some of the local sportsmen are putting in thoir fine work this fine weather. The platform in front of the old freight house has been removed and work on the new depot will begin as soon as possable. T h e RlalnK—P ie r c e Muptials. One of the pleasantest times of the season was the wedding of .Miss Eva L. Pierce, formerly of this place but now residing in Brightwood, Mass., and Mr. Emerson B. Rising of that town. The wedding took place in their new home which was costly furnished ready for them to start housekeeping. The bride wore a gown of white mohair, cut entrain, and trimmed with white silk and carried a boquet of pink roses and smila.x. The groom wore a neat black suit with a buttonhole boquet of roses and smilax. The bridsmaid was Miss Leora L. Pepper of New Britain, who wore a dress of cream Torton cut entrain, with feather trimmings, and Mr. Dwight E. Bacon of New Britain, was best man. At five o’clock the couple came down^ to the parlor where they met the Rev. Mr. Fo-crow of the Baptist church of Springfield, who united them in marriage beneath an arch of evergreens and flowers. There were a number of friends present from Ware, Worcester and Southwick, Mass.. and also from New Britain. They received many beautiful and costly presents. In n ta lla tlon o f R e v . M a ce e P r a tt . The installation of Rev. Magee Pratt over the church in Kensington, took place Tuesday, as had been announced. Many of the churches within the conference were represented by pastor and a goodly number of lay members. After the satisfactorj- examination of the candidate he was welcomed into fellowship with these churches, and the cordial tone of this part of the ser^'ice was evidently beyond a mere formality. Mr. Clayton in giving the “ right hand of fellowship” felicitated Mr. Pratt as well as himself upon their opportunity for increasing usefulness through the growth of the town, and among the many who had come and would come to make their homes here. He touched upon the material side of the matter as he predicted with a humorous optimism the disposal of the land for building lots. “ Unless" he added “ the soil is all used up for making bricks.” His words were not all in the vein of pleasantr)-, however, but expressed as well many true and helpful sentiments. BLUE HILL BRIEFS. James Hall, formerly of this place, now of South Carolina, is visiting his mother and brother Mrs. Lydia and John Hall. John L. Watrous has purchased the large tract of timber on the west side of Cathole Pass. H« will have steam power on the lot for cutting up the wood for market. Mrs. Byrne of Newington, is visiting her daughter. Mrs. W. Coirigan. The selectmen are doing a good and much needed job raising and macadamizing the road between Mr. Bull’s and Mr. Burr’s on the Meriden and New Britain road. D. B. Allen who has purchased the Coan place is making many improvements there by a new covering to the barn and having both house and bam painted. He is going into the poultry business having built a large hennery divided into compartments, each to hold twenty-five hens. With more such men as Mr. Allen, Blue Hills would soon be the leading part of the town. Vf. J. Corrigan left Tuesday night on a business trip through northern New York by Albany, Syracuse and Buffalo. Thomas Conlon, a former citizen of this place has become insane, the result of a shock. He was taken to the Insane Retreat at Middletown, Saturday. A Wonderful School. The moclern metho«l of teaching differs from the methods employed a generation aj£o. The fathers and mothers of today can remember the ra ttan—how it seasoned their school days and, like the .sword of Damocles, hung over maps and problem.s. The teacher of today is not a driver, but a leader. The teacher is full of idea.s, and the modern methods emboflies a plan of— not punishment for ill doing, but reward for well doing. The negative government is replaced by a positive government, and the youthful nature yields to the trear ment. In a certain public school in Now York city there are no bad boys—nr> iwjorly dre.s.sed boys—no dirty boy.s—no laggards— no boys with mud on their shoes—no boys with button.s off their coat.s—and th'* school is situated not far from a tenemeni house district. There is but one rule in this school—and that is as unchangeable and inflexible as it is .simple. “Do right because it is right,” is the rule. There may be other schools of this nature, but of this one 1 know personally. Every boy in the school is individualized. There is a roll of honor, than which the book of the recording angel is not more carefully kept. Good work i.s recorde<l therein. The keeper of this liook aims to strike the keynote of every child’s nature —which, once sounded, every liber of that nature vibrates in unison. Does a poor boy need a coat or a pair of shoes? There is a storehouse of supplies which never fails. No one knows whence the supplies come, but they come. This is a new element in public school education.—New York Recorder.

When a girl feels an attack of the blaes coming on she withdraws herself from the cold and cruel world and locks her door. She lets down her hair and puts on her homeliest gown.s. She pulls down the blinds and makes it nice and gloomy and buries herself in the depths of a big chair with a large handkerchief to hold the tears. She curls around with her cheek again.st the back of the chair and cries a little and thinks how awfully mean Jack was last night. He needn’t have gone off in such a huff, and he might have known she didn’t mean what she .said. He ought to know that girls don’t mean things when they say ’em, and he m ight have come over this afternoon and let her explain. Pi-esently she gets up and looks in the glass to .see how awfully melancholy she does look. Then she curls up and cries some more, fjettiu}? deeper anil deeper into the slough of despond. Her nose begins to get red, and siie has just reached adelight-fully nii.serable state when----- “My goodnes.s, th a t ’s Ja ck’s voice down in the hall!” Then she flies up in a hurry. dal)bles her eyes in cool water and does lier hair up in a ravishing curly little knot behind.

Clioosing Names. If we are to fight for an extension of our privileges we shall be obliged to conduct it along less rigid and natural lines, .such, for instance, as the matter of naine.s. We might compromise by agreeing that the generation before us shall inflict upon us such titles as please it; that we shall bear these for a term of five or ten years, as shall seem best upon due consideration, and that thereafter we shall take to ourselves an agreeable name as freely as we are now pemiiited to take a wife. Our names are given to us for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, and it is quite pos.sible that they will have 41 serious effect upon our fortunes. Under the new arrangement Galusha Elisha, with the burden of dead generations upon him, might blos.som out at the appointed time as Reginahl or Raymond. Parental sway, so far as names are con-ceraed, wduld be over, and he would have no cause to hide two or three disagreeable syllables Ijehind an initial. Like charity, the initials cover a multitude of improprieties. But more seriously, this question of names is by no means an idle one. On the one hand there might be a go<xl deal le.ss of reverence and respect for relatives and connections manifested iu the matter of naming children, and on the other hand, the sentimental parent, who goes to the romantic e.vtreme instead of to the ancestral, sotospeak, needs to be curbed.-^Providence J o u r n a l . ___________ __ Aitltiui; a Great Deal.
