S --(Special to the Telegram.)--A question of keen inteiest to all people in town is who v.ill be tho next yostmastei of the local p'ost office. The term of Hemy Kelley, the present postmaster expires in March of the coming year, and his successor has not yet been appointed. There arc many candidates work- Ing for the position which is one tor the best paying, politically, of any town For the year pnsl rumors have been heard of this per- on and that persons being appointed. The position oC postmaster has been hi Id chiefly by Republicans. Mr. Kelley received his a p p o i n t m e n t u n d e r the Wilson administration. His term of office will terminate in Maich and then he\ states he will go back to \\ork and real lilt? on tho farm. Mr. Kelley, by the way, owns ono of the richest fruit farms in the state, and his crop ot peaches and growth ot special ornamental trees a re ribbon winners. ' RutledRc M a Win. The latest report has it that |j B. Sutton, a previous postmas r ei under the Taft administration, will receive the appointment. Another r u m o r equally as wall substantiated is that Edward C Rutledge, assistant town clerk, will be the lucky person to receive tho appointment. Next in line oC those reooitecl after the job is William B. Simon; warden of the borough, and a member of the Republican Town committee. Mr. Simon possibly has the greatest favor owing to being a m.embcr of tho town committee. f Another person seeking the position is Isaac Nesblt. of the post office staff. Mr. Ncsbitt is the one person having actual office experience and for several years has-been connected \\ith the New Canaan post otifce ,' Still another out for the 1ob, but v/bo statefc he -\\ould not take it handed on a sll\er plater, is William A. Smallhorri of a gio- cery lieie. AH these seekcia of tho highest paid political oltico in town are working under cover ,-ind with a backing of many fri.nds. and each is hoping that he will bo the successful candidate. The person receiving the support of tho Town committee undoubtedly will get the job.

The cloud is film You feel on your teeth a viscous film. Under old-way brushing, much of it clings and stays. Soon it becomes discolored, then forms dingy coats. That is why so many teeth lose luster. Film also holds food substance which ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay. Germs breed by millions in it. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. Thus film is the greatest enemy of tooth beauty and tooth health.
