Enos Adams is laying a concreto walk in front of tho building occupiod by J. T. Shurtleff and Millor & Williams.

Mr. Ward will como to the dedication of tho monumcnt in a narlor car. accompanied by a party of f riends. Mr. Ward has rea- son to do prouu oi ms joo ana tiianKtui that so great an undertaking as tho ercc-tion of this suporb mouument was ac-complished withoutany serious accident About noon yesterday Will Babcock, being slightly indisposed from unduo contact with poor rum, attompted to lond to himself H. D. Fillmore's safety bicyclo, which was standing unhitchcd. near A. Y. Adams! on Main strcet. Fill-moro at onco procecded to recover his Eroporty, and only succccdedafterit had con considorably injured. Babcock"then turned his attention to- J, P. Norton's machino, which was jusC theirla tho hands of Fred Packard. Ho unscated Packard, but Julius apnearod at onco with "blood in his oyo,'' and forcibly domonstrated his property rights. , Babcock was carricd away by a passing team. Thoro wero nolcgalprocccdingslordam-agcs in tho matter, as that part of tho af-fair will bo settled among tho partiescon concorned. but tho other offcnso will be prosccuted. That Bennington is onjoying tho suro and steady growth which indicatcs solid prospority, rather than "mushroom" in-llation. is apparent to any ono who walks about the town. Now industrics aro com-Ing forward each weok. Among tho latest of theso is a company which is still no-gotiating for a location in our town. Tho business is that of manufacturing flt-tings for stoam and wator pipes. A now valvo, tho invention of a promincnt Co-hoes man'who is a membcr of ono of our best-known families, is tho prominont featuro. Tlio valvo is a great improvo-ment over tho formor stylcs of such fit-tings, and combines simplicity of con-struction, caso of managcmcnt, strcngth and cconomy in a large measure. A stock company of $100,000 is contomplated. Col. Olin Scott will probably tako a con-siderablo interest in tho company, which will insuro both onterpriso and business ability. Tho organizors havo boen om-ployod in tho Ludlow Valvo Company of Cohoes, nnd are thorough machinists. It is to bo hopcd thencgotiations mayprovo succcssf ul and tliat this induatry may bo added to tho many raanufacturing'intor-csts now finding a prosporous homo in our villago. A musical trcat which was all tho moro pleasurablo ou account of its rarity, was onjoycd by a number of the musically inclined of tho villago on Wedncsday ovening, by invitation of Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Childs, tho occasion boing'a musical rccital by Mr. and Mrs. Edward Severn of Spnngfield, Mass., who aro making a briof visit at Mr. Childs' on tholr way to tho White Mountains. Tho moro mention of tho names of theso colcbrated artists will bo sufficient assuranco of tho cxcellence of the cntortalnmcnt Both aro artists in tho highost dcgrce. having a raro powor of oxpression and internrctation. Mr. Sovern nlays tho violin with tho touch of amaster, and under his sklllful hand that most beautiful of all instrumonts gives forth a sweet and sympatlietic tono which holds tho rapt attention of an audionco during tho wholo prc-grammo. Sovoral ploccs of Mr. Sovorn's own composition wero played, most notoworthy, of which woro "Romanco" for violin and piano and "Gavotto" for piano alone. Tho sclcctions, intcr-spersod with music of an oxcellcnt charactor by somo of tho guosts, was as fol-lows: "Romanco" and "Gavotto" by Franz Rlcz; Mr. and Mrs. Severn; "Sherzo,"by Godard, Mrs. 8evern; "Ro-manco,'' by Sovoro, and "Mazurka" by Wieniawski. Mr. and Mrs. Sovern ;i "Gavotto by Severn. Mrs. Severn; "Scene do Ballet'' by Saurot, Mr. and Mrs. Severn. Tho piano selcctions playcd by Mrs. Sovern show hor to be a thorough muslclan in all pointe. Her playing exhlbita a pieasing combination of strcngth and dcll-cacy. In view of tho oxpectcd appoar-anco of Mr. and Mrs. Sovorn at tho Contenial, this introduetion to somo of our local znusicians, in advanco will. doubtless bring most pleasant rcsults to all partios. Mr. and Mrs. Childs aro woll known for their hospitality and dcservo hcarty thanks for their thoughtf ullness in this instanco.
