WINDHAM COUNTY NEWSPAPERS : WILLIMANTIC CHRONICLE 1879-1884
|The Willimantic Chronicle,
McDonald & Safford, Editors and Publishers.
Wed Dec 1 1880: About Town.
1697. Wed Dec 1 1880: F.H. Shaffer has been appointed special police by the Court of Burgesses. Slowly protection is being afforded to our people against the roughs which swarm our streets in some localities. Why not appoint a number of responsible persons as special police, and give them the power to make arrests?
1698. Wed Dec 1 1880: The Cleveland Herald records the death in Coitsville, Ohio, on the 24th, of Mrs. Polly Bissell Kyle, one of the oldest residents of the Western Reserve. Her father, John P. Bissell, went there from Lebanon, this state, in 1800. Mrs. Kyle lived on the homestead all her days. One of her fondest reminiscences was that she was a schoolmate of Jesse Grant, the father of the ex-president.
1699. Wed Dec 1 1880: A fire occurred in the picker room of the Linen Co's mill, No. 2, on Friday of last week, causing damage to the amount of a number of hundred dollars. It originated probably from particles of grit in the cotton being run through a picker. But for the perfect system of fire apparatus, the blaze would probably have produced considerable damage.
1700. Wed Dec 1 1880: We understanding that parties from out of town are contemplating starting a roller-skating rink in armory hall. We have never attempted the feat of skating on rollers, but we don't know any reason why, after the art has been acquired, there isn't as much enjoyment in this pastime as in gliding over the ice, besides escaping the severity of the weather. Roller-skating has become very popular in other places, and it probably would be in this place.
1701. Wed Dec 1 1880: Prof. Miller will form a dancing class at Franklin hall on Thursday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock for the instruction of Misses, Masters, Ladies and Gentlemen in the art of dancing. By this class an opportunity is offered to parents to have their children taught a desirable accomplishment which will be a source of enjoyment to them. People are becoming more and more liberal on the subject of dancing, and it is begin encouraged by parents very generally as a harmless amusement. We hope Mr. Miller will be successful in forming a large afternoon class.
1702. Wed Dec 1 1880: We are desired to call the attention of those who are interested in the formation of a night school in this place, to the fact that there will be one started by a gentleman who is fitted by education to give any course of instruction desired, provided he shall receive sufficient support in the undertaking. A few weeks ago the Chronicle suggested the idea to its readers, and it now heartily supports the subject. The young men among the laboring classes of Willimantic who have no particular place to spend their evenings, and who are anxious to inform their minds, and acquire a knowledge of the practical branches of study, which will be beneficial to them, should not be slow to avail themselves of this opportunity. A couple of hours spent in study would be an evening far more profitably passed than in loitering about the streets or in saloons, and it might awaken a desire to accumulate knowledge which will be a recommendation to some important position. The streets of Willimantic are full of bright young men every evening, who ought to be devoting a share of their idle time to this end. The tuition will be but a small item; just enough to pay the expenses of the school. Further particulars hereafter.
1703. Wed Dec 1 1880: Tuesday, as Robert McCarthy was returning from school, he met with quite a serious accident. He was riding on the step in the rear of C.A. Young's milk wagon, and when turning the corner of Jackson and Main streets, he lost his balance and was thrown violently upon the frozen ground. He was picked up unconscious and carried into a neighboring house, where Dr. McNally, assisted by Dr. Sawtelle, made a thorough examination. His injures were internal, there being but a slight scratch on his left cheek. After a couple of hours he rallied enough so as to speak, but was in a very critical condition all night. This morning, however, he is quite easy, and the doctors think he has a fair chance of recovery.
1704. Wed Dec 1 1880: On Friday afternoon Mrs. Anna Conway, residing with her son-in-law; Roland White on Maple Avenue was found dead in the room where she had been engaged in washing. Mr. White and family went to Gurleyville on Thursday to spend Thanksgiving, and returned at 5 o'clock on Friday, and found Mrs. Conway on the floor in a cramped position and cold in death. A lamp was burning in the room, and the amount of oil consumed showed that it had been burning since early Friday morning. A jury of inquest was called, consisting of the following persons: George W. Burnham; forman; C.J. Fox, M.D., A.T. Fowler, F.M. Fitts, George C. Topliff, Samuel Chittenden, E.E. Burnham, Wm. B. Avery, A.B. Palmer, M.E. Lincoln, E.B. Sumner, Thomas Jordan. The jury rendered a verdict that the deceased came to her death from apoplexy.
1705. Wed Dec 1 1880: But two days after the death of the brakeman who was injured in the smashup near Bolton the news was sent out that there had been another fatality on the same railroad. The victim was D.C. Scoville, a spare conductor, and the occurrence on Thursday morning. He was coupling cars, and the bunter to one of the cars being coupled was higher than the other and when they came together he was crushed between them, causing his death in about an hour. He was a son of John Scoville of Columbia, 36 years of age, and unmarried. On the following day a man in the railroad yard at Hartford had an arm smashed and was otherwise badly damaged. Freight conductor William H. Bliss, of Hartford, who had been employed for several years by the H.P. & E. road was killed on Saturday night near Franklin, Mass. Before reaching Franklin there are two bridges over the track, and Bliss either forgot that the car on which he was riding was two feet higher than the ordinary car or thought that the train had passed both the bridges. On reaching Franklin the engineer missed Bliss, and started with a brakeman to look for him. On walking to a certain part of the train they saw the feet of a man hanging over the side of a refrigerator car, and, on investigation, found the dead body of Bliss. A severe bruise across the face showed that he had been struck by one of the bridges, and his death must have been almost instantaneous. The railroad company has just had completed for it a number of elegantly finished passenger cars, and it is thought that they will order a new ambulance car built expressly for receiving their mutilated employees and run it regularly upon the road.
1706. Wed Dec 1 1880: According to the Hartford Times, a woman giving her name as Gertrude R. Scripture, of Hamilton, Ontario, was arrested in Norwich on Saturday afternoon for obtaining goods under false pretences and conveyed to the police station. It appears that she went to that city from Hartford on Friday, and took rooms at the Wauregan House. On Saturday she started out on a shopping tour, chiefly visiting drug stores and obtaining morphine, quinine and whiskey, and ordering them sent to her room at the hotel, where she was not to be found. After a day's shopping she was found by the officers at the depot, waiting for a train to leave the city, having apparently forgotten also to settle her hotel bill. She is known to have procured twenty grains of morphia, twenty grains of quinine and half a pint of whiskey, Saturday, all of which it is believed that she consumed. At night she was in a terribly nervous condition, and made a demand for a sufficient quantity of narcotics to kill five men. She had the money and the drug was furnished her. The same woman registered at the Brainard house on Thanksgiving night under the name of Mrs. G.R. Boynton, arriving late and not taking supper. She went out during the evening shopping and visited Dr. Rogers' drug store and purchased a porous plaster, a quantity of quinine and morphia and some pills. Part of the goods she took and directed that the pills, which had to be made, be sent to her room at the hotel in the morning. She requested the privilege of allowing the bill to go unpaid until morning because she had Canada money and wished to go to a bank and have it converted into our currency. The druggist suspected nothing, the woman being quite prepossessing in appearance, and acceded to her request. He called as directed to deliver the goods in the morning and collect pay, but the bird had flown, leaving landlord and druggist in the lurch. It is probable the woman was laboring under aberration of the mind.
1707. Wed Dec 1 1880: Scotland.
1708. Wed Dec 1 1880: Westminster.
1709. Wed Dec 1 1880: Rockville.
1708. Wed Dec 1 1880: A railroad man who was instructed to inform a lady that her husband had been killed by a railroad accident, and was cautioned to break the news gently, is credited with writing the following letter: "Dear Madam: I write to say that your husband is unavoidably detained. An undertaker will call on you tomorrow with full particulars. The funeral sermon has been arranged for.
1709. Wed Dec 1 1880: Married.
1710. Wed Dec 1 1880: Died.
1711. Wed Dec 1 1880: For Sale. 216 Shares Willimantic
Gas Stock. Proposals for the purchase will be received and information
given, by L.E. Baldwin, Hotel Commercial.
Wed Dec 8 1880: About Town.
1713. Wed Dec 8 1880: James Clune, formerly boss dyer in the Holland silk mills, has become interested in the Boston Shoe Store, and the firm name has been changed to Brennan & Clune.
1714. Wed Dec 8 1880: There will be a social dance at Cumming's hall at Liberty Hill, on Friday evening Dec. 17. Music by Kingsley & Kinne's orchestra. Edgar A. Rood, general manager.
1715. Wed Dec 8 1880: A.L. Preston will sell at auction on the Marcus Barrows farm near Gurleyville, on Wednesday, Dec. 22, at 9 o'clock a.m. his stock, farming tools, household furniture, wagons, etc.
1716. Wed Dec 8 1880: Station-master Marston was confined for a few days last week with a slight attack of pneumonia, and his place was supplied by Supt. Shepard and the head auditor of the railroad.
1717. Wed Dec 8 1880: Chas. Martin, station agent at Putnam for the past nine years, has resigned that position to accept a call on the New Jersey Central railroad, under M. Britton, former manager of the N.Y. and N.E. road.
1718. Wed Dec 8 1880: The railroad commissioners will, at their rooms at the Capitol, on the 15th inst. investigate the cause of the Hop River accident. The citizens of Rockville and Manchester and also the officers of the New York and New England Railroad Company have asked to have the affair investigated.
1719. Wed Dec 8 1880: Patrolman Worden has been over the course of the footrace at South Windham and has picked up between 70 and 80 pennies thrown away by the supposed burglars, and one revolver making four pistols which have been secured. Mr. Worden is confident that the three men had six or seven pistols among them, which would make quite a respectable armament for a peaceable trio.
1720. Wed Dec 8 1880: Dunbar Loring handed us a black bottle on the street one day last week which we brought into the office and uncorked. The compositors emptied it without ceremony, all agreeing that it was the best cider they ever drank. When the liquid was nearly gone it was discovered to be grape wine; and now if anyone don't believe that Mr. Loring makes good wine, let them come in and smell of the bottle.
1721. Wed Dec 8 1880: The prizes that are to be awarded at the Willimantic band fair and festival, are on exhibition in the window of A.W. Turner, Post Office block, and are handsome, useful and valuable.
1722. Wed Dec 8 1880: Willimantic people don't seem to like the West this year. George Washington Taylor and family returned a few days since from Michigan, and A.E. Welden and family returned form the stock regions last week. Wm. C. Crandall returned from his annual vacation in Colorado a few days since. Don't go West young man, don't go West!
1723. Wed Dec 8 1880: A five-year-old son of Homer A Barrows was sliding out of an alley to West Main street on Saturday, when he was caught under an ox cart belonging to Hardin Fitch, loaded with 4,500 pounds of iron. One wheel of the cart passed over the little fellow's right leg near the knee, crushing the bones and flesh to such a degree that amputation above the knee was found to be necessary. The operation was performed by Drs. Jacobs and Hills. The boy showed great fortitude both before and after the operation, and is now doing well.
1724. Wed Dec 8 1880: Our fellow craftsman, W.C. Crandall, who went west some three weeks ago but has since returned, receives the following complimentary send-off from the Fort Collins (Col.) Courier: "Mr. W.C. Crandall, a prominent manufacturer of Willimantic, Connecticut arrived Sunday over the U.P. We learn that he has engaged rooms at Loveland, and will open a bank there about January first. One of Collins' prominent business men is to be associated with him. Mr. Crandall leaves for the east to-day to bring on his family.
1725. Wed Dec 8 1880: Nothing has been heard from the missing pastor, Rev. John Marsland of Central Village, and the search in the vicinity has been abandoned. It seems to be well established that he took the cars at Plainfield, but no clue has been discovered as to his destination. Nothing has been found in his public or private life which can be urged as a reason for his flight from home, and the affair is as much a mystery as ever. It would seem that he must have been insane at the time of his disappearance, and we understand that this is the opinion of his wife, who clings to the hope that he will return to his family when he comes to himself.
1726. Wed Dec 8 1880: Supt. Shepard of the New York and New England railroad stated here on Saturday that the officials of the railroad decided to build a new depot at this place, and that work would be begun within a short time. The company has been desirous of providing more convenient accommodations for passengers at this place for a long time, and have had conferences in relation to the matter with the other roads interested, a number of times, but could arrive at no satisfactory agreement. They now say that a depot will be built independent of the other roads if they do not wish to join in the project. We did not learn the location, but probably it will be the present site. The freight yard will be moved to the sand cut just beyond the coal and lumberyard of Taylor & Son. This will relieve people who have business at the depot of much inconvenience, in being compelled to wait for freight cars to be shifted backwards and forwards over the crossing, and of being obliged to dodge between at the risk of their lives in order to reach the depot.
1727. Wed Dec 8 1880: Hammond and Wallen's orchestra, of South Coventry, are to play for a series of socials in Tillinghast's new hall this winter. They furnish music for a ball in the same place on the night of the 23d inst.
1728. Wed Dec 8 1880: Burglary and Attempted Murder.--Friday
morning, as Mr. Flint, of the firm of Walden & Flint, druggists,
arrived at their place of business, he found that the door was
unlocked, and upon examination observed that it had been pried
open by means of a chisel or lever. He entered the store expecting
to see that a large amount of goods had been stolen, but on looking
over his stock, found that there were no goods missing, and that
the thieves had confined their attention to the money drawer, which
was broken from its fastenings, and taken what change had been
left in the drawer, which amounted to some seventy-five cents.
Mr. Flint called on William Worden, the night patrolman, who was
on duty that night, to ascertain if he had any knowledge of the
offense, but found that he was not aware that anything of the kind
had happened. He said that according to his custom he tried all
the store doors upon his beat, and they were all locked. But it
seems that the watchman saw, while coming down the street, three
persons in conversation at the corner of North and Main streets,
at a late hour, and when they perceived him they moved up the street
on the opposite side, and as they passed, he discovered that they
were strangers and kept an eye on their movements until they were
out of sight. He thinks the breaking in must have been accomplished
while he was at lunch at about one o'clock.

1735. Wed Dec 8 1880: Died.
Wed Dec15 1880: About Town.
1737. Wed Dec 15 1880: The farmers hereabouts are pushing the white birch business very actively. Load after load is being drawn to the Linen Co.'s spool shop every day.
1738. Wed Dec 15 1880: The Rockville Leader building is to have some chimneys. Now we hope that some of the stove pipes hanging out of the back windows will be called in.
1739. Wed Dec 15 1880: The county papers have it that there is to be a double track between Willimantic and Putnam, and that the building of the additional track will be begun in the spring.
1740. Wed Dec 15 1880: J.C. Lincoln desires to close out his stock of furniture at cost before moving to his new quarters. When he says cost, he wants the people to know that he means business.
1741. Wed Dec 15 1880: S. Whitney Hall has taken a situation at the necktie counter of the Boston store in Providence.
1742. Wed Dec 15 1880: The third quarterly conference was held at the Methodist church, Monday evening, Dr. Talbot presiding. Dr. T. spent last Sabbath with the churches at Gurleyville and South Coventry.
1743. Wed Dec 15 1880: The employees in the Linen Co.'s new mill are required to wear uniforms. The females wear a white overskirt fitting closely and belted about the waist with a band of red ribbon, the males wear white coat and pantloons, with cap to match.
1744. Wed Dec 15 1880: On the first six week days of December the number of pieces mailed at the different post offices in the country were counted. The count at the Willimantic office was as follows: letters, 3,657; postal cards, 1,040; circulars, 349; packages of merchandise, etc., 81.
1745. Wed Dec 15 1880: We notice frequent loads of machinery are being shipped from the machine shop of W.G. & A.R. Morrison. Their business has been increasing liberally of late, and the extensive addition to their shop enables them to turn out a large amount of machinery. Their works are among the most important industries of the town.
1746. Wed Dec 15 1880: In the death of Mrs. Harriet Lathrop last Wednesday, our village loses one of its landmarks. Mrs. Lathrop was an original character, and under an unpolished exterior was hidden one of the kindest of hearts, as her neighbors and friends can testify. She had been feeble for some time, and passed away at the ripe age of 81 years.
1747. Wed Dec 15 1880: A.W. Turner informs us that he is to have a grand opening of fine jewelry and silverware on Saturday. We guarantee that it will be worth while to pay him a visit just at that time and examine his goods, for he will have something that will just suit your eye for a Christmas present, and of course that is what you are looking for about this time.
1748. Wed Dec 15 1880: The poles for the new telegraph line are being set between this village and Andover. The frost makes the rate of progress rather slow. Work is being carried on at the Boston end of the line, and it is said that the two gangs will meet at Providence. We understand that the route through the village, over which there has been considerable discussion, will be on Pleasant street.
1749. Wed Dec 15 1880: Rev. H. Montgomery will conduct the prayer meeting Saturday afternoon and preach at the Methodist Saturday evening. He will lead prayer meeting at 10 3/4 o'clock Sabbath a.m. and preach at 2 o'clock. Dr. Church preached Tuesday and Wednesday last week, at Greeneville, where he will conduct revival service, Friday and Saturday of this week, and preach next Sabbath.
1750. Wed Dec 15 1880: The caboose car on the early freight train east over the New York and New England road became detached from the rest of the train on Monday morning, and the conductor and all were left at this station, while the train went on its way. When at North Windham, the engineer received a telegram informing him of the loss, and he had the pleasure of returning for the conductor.
1751. Wed Dec 15 1880: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of the present week, will be days known in the ecclesiastical calendar as Ember days, fasting days of strict obligations in the Catholic churches, and also observed by the Anglican church and the Protestant Episcopal. The days are observed at each quarter of the year, and one of the terms used in describing them is "The quarter tenses." At these seasons the Catholic, Anglican and Episcopal churches ordain their priests.
1752. Wed Dec 15 1880: On Tuesday of last week, as C.N. Andrew was passing the corner at the junction of Chestnut and Prospect streets, he was guarding against slipping on the ice, but unawares struck his foot against the curbing, which projects quite a few inches above the walk, causing him to get an ugly fall, from which he was wounded quite severely about the head and face, requiring the services of a physician. Mr. Andrew thought the borough was responsible for the damages sustained. He has consulted a lawyer on the subject, and perhaps may bring a suit against the borough for damages.
1753. Wed Dec 15 1880: The second hearing in the case of the Willimantic Trust Co., was begun at the court room on Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock with Judge Seymour, of Litchfield on the bench. Before proceeding with the hearing to any extent, it was deemed prudent, in view of the emergency which arose at the close of the previous hearing which prohibited Judge Hovey from proceeding further, to ascertain if Judge Seymour was interested in any of the concerns which were creditors of the defunct company thereby disqualifying him. Upon investigating the matter it was found that he was debarred from presiding in the case in the following way: It seems that the Judge's wife owns stock in the Farmers and Mechanics' bank, of Hartford, and that bank is a creditor of the Willimantic Trust Co. By the statutes of this state a man is made trustee of his wife's property, and he being trustee of her property is interested in the settlement of this bank's affairs and therefore he cannot legally sit on the case. And furthermore, the Judge is executor of the will of the estate of a certain Mr. Beers, of Litchfield, that holds stock in the Hartford bank, of that city, and this will bequeaths a certain sum of money to an ecclesiastical society of which Judge Seymour is a member. These are hair-splitting technicalities, but the array of legal talent which was present and discussed the matter decided clearly the construction which must be put upon the law relative to the case, and the Judge acquiesced in the decision. After a lengthy conference on the matter it was formally agreed by counsel for all parties interested that the disqualifications of the Judge be waived and that he be allowed to go on with the hearing. In order to do this it is necessary to get the consent of all the creditors of the bank to the waiver, and consequently it was adjourned to some time next week. Some doubt was expressed of the ability to get a Judge on the Connecticut bench who might not be in some remote way interested in the settlement of the question pending, and this was deemed the most advisable course to pursue. The receivers feel confident that the case will be settled sometime, but just when is an open question.
1754. Wed Dec 15 1880: Buffalo Bill, the noted scout, guide and actor, appears at Loomer Opera house, Wednesday evening, Dec. 22d., with his monster combination of 24 artists, a troupe of Cheyenne Indians, his superb orchestra and brass band, not forgetting the celebrated trick donkey, Jenny, who will help to make it pleasant and instructing. Mr. Cody will produce his new drama, the Prairie Waif, a story of the far West, written expressly for him, and taken from real scenes in his past life, while in the employ of the government as chief of scouts and guide to the U.S. Army.
1755. Wed Dec 15 1880: South Coventry.
1756. Wed Dec 15 1880: Columbia.

1761. Wed Dec 15 1880: Montville.
1762. Wed Dec 15 1880: Children's Quaint Sayings.
The London Truth advertised to give a prize of 2 pounds 2 shillings
for the quaintest saying of a child. Several hundred contributions
were sent in and we give a few of the most pointed:
1763. Wed Dec 15 1880: Diphtheria. Its mode of attack,
the symptoms, the precautions to be taken, etc. The following circular
about diphtheria, issued by the New York board of health, will
be found worth reading by the people of any locality:
1764. Wed Dec 15 1880: A bill in equity to remove Z. Chaffee from the position of trustee of the A. & Sprague estate, was filed in Providence on Monday. A hearing will be had before Judge Lowell in the United States circuit court today.
1765. Wed Dec 15 1880: Illumination by electric light has become so popular a means of advertising in New York that its speedy introduction for general use in that city is being seriously talked of. It appears that the Brush Electric Light company have received permission to light Broadway from Fourteenth to Thirty-fourth street, by means of their electric light, free of expense to the city. The understanding is, should the experiment prove a success, the entire city is to be illuminated in the same manner. The preparations for putting in the necessary machinery are progressing rapidly, and it is said with the beginning of the new year, the bright, clear light of electricity will almost turn night into day on the busy thoroughfare. The admirable effect of this light, as illustrated by its use by the enterprising company in our midst, proves its superiority to ordinary gas to be so great that there can be little doubt of the proposed experiment.

1788. Wed Dec 15 1880: Nervous Children.--The following suggestion is worthy the consideration of parents: Nervousness with a child is almost always a matter of the stomach. A crust of bread will usually put an end to the most obstinate perverseness. Children, for this reason, should never be allowed to go to bed after a fit of crying with an empty stomach. A bit of bread and jelly or a cup of custard will bring smiles and happiness when all the moral law fails, and for the soundest of reasons.

Mr. Thomas is making rapid strides to success in life, with so few years on his shoulders--but ability tells.
1811. Wed Dec 22 1880: On Tuesday a horse belonging to H.C. Hall, grocer, was left standing alone in front of the post office, and becoming frightened by something ran away, doing a number of streets in the village in quick time and finally bringing up in Taylor & Son's lumber yard.

The next school will be on Thursday evening at room 4, Bank building.

1815. Wed Dec 22 1880: The last few days have been happy and fruitful ones to quite a number of overseers in the Linen Co.'s mills. Last Thursday Mr. Benjamin Jones, overseer of the winding room in mill No. 2 was presented with an elegant and costly hat tree and an antique silver fruit stand. The donors were the operatives of his room. Mr. Jones has for many years filled the position of overseer, and is widely known as a kind overseer, and is widely known as a kind overseer and gentleman of sterling qualities.

Hyde announced to the convention that Mr. Storrs, of Mansfield, had offered to give to the state a farm valued at $15,000 for the purpose of establishing an agricultural school. To this offer a brother of Mr. Storrs adds a piece of land of 100 acres and agrees to give $5,000 to help along the proposed institution. Mr. R.S. Hinman offered a resolution that a committee of three be appointed to examine the property and make such recommendations to the board as they might see fit. Mr. Day amended by having the committee report at the next meeting of the board. As amended the resolution was passed after some discussion in which Messrs. Robinson, Augur, Stoughton, Day, Hinman, Gold, Cressy, Wadsworth and Professor Johnson took part. The profered gift is the property that was given to the state for the care of soldiers' orphans, and which reverted to the original owner. Since that time Mr. Storrs has purchased it and desires to give it to the state for the benefit of agricultural knowledge. It has 50 acres and a building 100x40, 3 1/2 stories high and containing 50 rooms.
1817. Wed Dec 22 1880: The band fair proved a rather enjoyable affair to the attendants, and a profitable undertaking for the band. The first three nights were not very extensively patronized, but Saturday evening called out a crowd. The prizes which had been provided in the lotteries were valuable and numerous. By twelve o'clock there had been nearly two thousand votes cast, of which Giles Young had about eleven hundred and Eugene Latham, of South Windham nearly six hundred. Giles Young was accordingly declared the most popular man in the town of Windham, and given a cane. Mr. Frank Wilson drew the ice pitcher, which was very valuable, Henry Larabee, the silver tea pot, G.G. Standish the calender clock.
1818. Wed Dec 22 1880: A Whale in Our Midst. The privilege of seeing a huge whale, and a real one, too, way up in this inland town, would be a treat well worth enjoying, even at the expense of a few hours valuable sleep, and would no doubt have been improved by many curious eyes, had they known of the occurrence. Nevertheless such was the case. On Saturday morning, long before daylight, there passed through Willimantic, via the New York and New England railroad, the body of a whale en route for Chicago. The train stopped in New Haven for the reporters to interview this king of the deep, and the Register gives this interesting account of it:--The appearance of a whale in new Haven is a decided novelty, and when one showed up this morning there was of course a general stampede to see this monarch of the deep. A whale intending to visit the City of Elms would naturally come by water, but this whale was an erratic sort of whale, as he came by cars; but it wasn't the whale's fault for it was brought here in that fashion in charge of Messrs McCarthy and Jordan, two of the parties who helped to catch it. As it was cut in two and transported on cars, it may naturally be inferred that the animal was dead. The whale was purchased by Fred Englehardt soon after its capture, some 450 miles off Provincetown, Mass., by Captain Cook and eleven others, he paying $20,000 for it. His majesty made but a short stop here, as it was bound through to Chicago via the Pittsburg and Fort Wayne route, but during his stay here he attracted more attention in a given time than President Hayes did when he was here last summer. The huge carcass is expected to reach Chicago at 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning. When caught the monster weighed fifty tons, but some twenty tons of flesh which it was thought would not keep during the trip to Chicago were cut from the carcass before it was loaded on the cars, so that only thirty tons of him arrived here. On the trip between Boston and this city, so one of the sailors who is with the carcass, twenty gallons of blood was taken from the remains of his whale-ship, but this statement may, if the reader chooses, be taken with some grains of allowance, as it smacks somewhat of a sailor's yarn. The bow of the whale, so to speak, occupied the first car, and the spectator could not but be impressed with the fact that the greater part of the front end of a whale is mouth. The jaws each measure twenty-four feet in length, and a man can easily walk around in that tremendous mouth, which must have a smile that is simply entrancing. This will be better understood when it is stated that the whole length of the animal is but sixty feet. The stern or rear half of the animal occupied a second car, and this was really the valuable part of the huge fellow, for it contained the oil, and this was oozing out in little drops while the car on which it rested remained here. The carcass lay on its back, and rose to a height of some ten feet above the platform car. Heavy plants fenced it on the cars, and the carcass was bound together with twelve hoops made of inch and a half round iron. The weight of the rear portion was so heavy that the car platform had sagged somewhat, and fears were expressed that it would not hold out for the entire trip. On the cars were large quantities of salt, which were used for salting the holes in which the harpoon has been stuck when the whale was captured. The train which brought the carcass came over the New England road, and an eager questioner as to the route taken, who was supposed to be a resident of Hartford--for he said it was a shame that it wasn't exhibited in the Capitol--was informed of the fact by Officer Kennedy. "If it came over the New England road without accident," remarked a bystander, with a roguish twinkle of the eye, "you needn't have any fear of that 'weak car,' as you call it, for a car that can stand a run over that route without breaking down, can run from here over all the other roads in the world without injury. Good day."

Who will get it?
1837. Wed Dec 29 1880: Mr. A.S. Nichols, former superintendent of the Smithville Manufacturing Co., but now holding the position of superintendent of a large cotton company in Newmarket, N.H., was in town Monday to attend the funeral of his mother, whose remains were deposited in the Willimantic cemetery.

1846. Wed Dec 29 1880: An unhappy mishap befell the cook in Hotel Commercial on Friday last quite as unique as it was unfortunate. She had been paid the wages her due, amounting to some $29, preparatory to leaving for Hartford and placed the same in the pocket of the dress which she uses in performing her accustomed work. While about her duties she inadvertently put her hand in the pocket containing the money, and thinking it was some old scraps of paper took them out and without examination cast them into the stove. Before she noticed the mistake the scrip was ignited and the $29 was consumed before her very eyes without being able to recover it. She is a poor woman, and the occurrence is an unhappy one for her. Being then without money excepting a little change, Mr. Burnham, the proprietor, kindly contributed enough to take her to Hartford where she has friends.
1847. Wed Dec 29 1880: At the town meeting on Monday, it was voted with but little opposition, to build a jail free of expense to the county, if the General Assembly will pass an act to compel the holding of alternate terms of the Superior court in the town of Windham.

There is a total population of 30,000, most of whom are Indians, a few of whom are Aleuts (natives of the Aleutian islands, near Alaska), and some 1,500 are Creoles, persons of mixed Russian and Aleut blood. There are in the whole territory only about 300 white persons, but four of whom are women.
1861. Wed Dec 29 1880: Accusations of dishonesty are now made by some of the Mormons against their bishops in connection with the tithing system. Every Mormon is required to give to the church authorities one-tenth of all his products if he is a farmer, the same proportion of his profits if he is in mercantile or professional business, and of his wages if he is an employee. Special officers are appointed to collect these tithes, and they are exacted with the utmost rigor. Five hundred Mormons lately went into Colorado to work on a railroad, and supposed they were for the time safe from the customary exaction, but Brigham Young, Jr., followed them, and demanded a tenth of their pay. The tithes yield not less than a million dollars a year to the church, and of this large revenue the head men make no accounting to the people. It is charged that a corrupt and successful ring exists at Salt Lake City, and its early downfall is predicted.
