Bristol real estate men had an informal meeting recently at which the housing situation Here was considered. I he increased business being done by the Keystone aircraft corporation has brought to Bristol a Large number of men mostly Young married men w to Are accustomed to a different kind of dwelling than Bristol affords in sufficient numbers to meet the demands. These men want apartments or houses hat rent from $35 to $50 a month equipped with modern conveniences. Bristol a Supply of this Type of House is limited and real estate men say that every one on their lists has been rented in the last few weeks. As a result people who would prefer to live near their work Are compelled to live elsewhere. A if i had Twenty houses or apartments of this kind i could rent them today a one real estate Man remarked. Once the property owners feel certain that the increased activity at the air plane Plant is to be reason i ably permanent there w ill be much new construction in the sixth Ward and thereabouts. Plans Are being made now for the construction of about Twenty houses this Spring and More will follow. There Are Many houses available at from $25 to $35 a month some of which Reed considerable repair work and the owners of which Are ready immediately to put them in condition. These Are a a workmen Homes a but the demand for them is not so great As the demand for ii Iglus repriced Homes. There also seems to be a real demand for some modern apartments in Bristol buildings with apartments of one two and three rooms. Here again it is said that Assurance of permanent activity in the Industrial plants will be followed by the construction of such buildings. D. Rufe of Kintnersville who recently bought the hotel Loison has begun extensive alterations and improvements in the building. When the work is finished Townsend s restaurant will be Bmat cd to the hotel which will be conducted by or. And mrs. Townsend or. Rufe being mrs. Townsend a father. Boyhood occupations. I of know How it is when a number of men get together How they get to reminiscing about a the Good old nays and All that. One does no to need to Hae a huge crowd either to encourage memories of old Days. Apt. William e. Doron and ourself for instance. The Captain was telling us about the Good old Days of More than Lilly years ago and happened to mention the old Mill building at the foot of Pond Street. It seems that John Dorrance and Ellwood Doron Bapt. Boron a father forming the firm of Dorrance amp Doron built the Mill building now occupied Iii part by the Wallace wet Wash. Capt. Doron was but a boy when the Structure was put up. A every Square foot of tile Interior of the building was whitewashed a said the Captain. A the joists were All stiffened by bridging two pieces of Wood nailed diagonally Between the joists there being four Bridges Between each pair of joists. A i remember hearing my father say to or. Dorrance a we be got to get somebody to Whitewash those i spoke up and said a Why can to i do that Job a father looked me Over and finally said that he thought i could. He said he would give me one cent for each four Bridges i dipped Iii Whitewash. I dipped All die Bridges and stacked them up to dry and when the Job was done i was whitewashed it was Only a few minutes later when we not it Joseph Singer. We chatted a moment about the forthcoming filling of the canal coi Nany Basin and or. Singer recall d that As a boy he took Many a net Ful of i herring and other fish out of the Basin. One time he got a haul of Basso this of course happened before the Law was As strict on netting and fishing As it now is. A those sure were the Good old Days a said or. Singer. And then who do you suppose we ran into none other than Minot j. Hill. What did he do when he was a kid Well he had two jobs he will never forget one was candling eggs and the other was rubbing cheeses lie got so he could Tell a bad egg by its feel and he became so fed up with rubbing cheeses that for ten years he look at a cheese without having a funny sensation Iii the pit of his stomach. Then lie went to Europe and had to eat Stilton cheese on Toast cheese that had not been As carefully protected against a a Skippers As it ought to have been. Since that time ing has phased m. J. No changes looked for among methodist pastorate hereabouts pastors of the methodist churches in and about Bristol arc attending the conference in Philadelphia. It is not expected that there will be any changes in the pastorate hereabouts. Rev. George f. Hess pastor of the Bristol m. E. Church was assigned to the local pulpit last year and is expected to continue Here. Lev. J. B. D. Cooke pastor of the Cornwells m. E. Church Lias had a highly successful year in that Church and his congregation is hopeful and expectant that lie will be returned. Rev. C. C. Levergood pastor of the Tullytown Emilie and Fallsington m.

Hears assigned a Clever member of the staff of his Boston paper to write Tom s speeches to Drill him in them Ane to put him Over. This Man Clem Pollock was All that Tom was not and above everything else lie was conscientious ii. His drilling of Tom in his speech in aking. The Campaign went on with no noticeable Success outside of the pages of the Hearst papers but in one of the huge Cit its toward the end of the Campaign there was a tremendous audience. It was to be the key meeting of the Campaign Iii that part of the country. Tom had been carefully coached. His speech attacked Roosevelt Bel bored Taft and in general advocated scrapping of the old parties. When it came to Taft Tom said something like this a and Taft what about him he has sold his Birthright sold his Birthright for a for a a Tom recall exactly what he had sold it for but he finished by bursting out a sold it for a pot of Pollock told us afterwards that if there had been a Hole Iii the floor Large enough for him to sink through he would have disappeared. The crowd roared and Tom took it As applause.

J. Sledden. The purchaser a manufacturer of and hares and has Railroad signals been in business having been we lose a bet. Although we had been warned that Morris Grossman is infallible us a weather Prophet we were lash enough to bet his judgment was wrong and we lost. Wednesday evening after a Days wet weather we stopped in to say hello to Morris and remarked that the next Day would be Fine. A Pardon me gentleman but you Are wrong a said Morris in his usual courteous manner. A every night before i go to bed i go outside and look at the sky so As to get what the weather will be. Night when i went out there Large ring around the Moon and there were three stars inside ring. That Means that there three Days of we had observed the Bright strip of sky illumined by the setting Sun thai evening and had noted that tile Clouds were breaking away just As we entered or. Grossmann a place of business so we were kind of cocky. A bet you that it wont rain Between 7 of clock tomorrow morning and 7 of clock tomorrow night a we said. Morris took us up. Wednesday was Dollar Day so we wanted Good weather. Early in the Day it was Fine in fact it was Fine All Day except for about ten minutes when there was enough rain to win Morris his bet.

Mrs. Shemeley jumps fre fourth to second place and or. Moss from eighth to third. Crowthers drops from second to fourth and or. Wink from to sixth. Mrs. Carroll still holds Down fifth place. Mrs. Levergood mrs. Groom and mrs. Rigby each drop Down one position to seventh eighth and ninth respectively. It is a Battle Royal now and no club member can hold their position or gain on the others unless they get right out and do some real lioness to goodness hard work these remaining two weeks of the Campaign. If you really knew How close this race is right now two of the club members being in an actual tie and but a very few Points separating the others you would certainly let nothing stand in your Way of getting every subscription and Selling every Trade card you possibly can now when prizes of $9 75 and $717 Are at stake.
