A John McLean.

John McLean, one of the oldest and

most esteemed business men of Danbury,

died at his home, 62 Deer Hill

avenue, Thursday, November 24, 1932,

in the eigthy-fourth year of his age.

Mr. McLean had been confined to his

bed about six weeks and until shortly

before that time had been able to give

attention to the business of John Mo-

Lean, Inc., of which he was the founder

and executive head, although the

illness which resulted in his death is

believed to have had its beginning in

the nervous shock resulting from a fall

last August, while he was descending

a flight of stairs in his home.

Mr. McLean had been associated

with the retail merchantlle business

in Danbury for sixty years and as a

merchant for nearly thirty-five years.

His business success, together with his

reputation for integrity and the high

standard that he set for his merchantlle

aims, made him an outstanding

figure in the business community.

Mr. McLean was born in Aberfeldy,

Perthshire, Scotland, June 29, 1849, the

youngest son of the late Robert and

Isabel (Campbell) McLean. He was

descended from an old Highland family.*

He learned the trade of carpenter

in his native country and after coming

to the United States with his parents

in 1868, was employed at his trade in

Yonkers, N. Y. He went to Hartford in

1870 and was employed in the construction

of the present state capitol


In 1872 Mr. McLean came to Danbury

to take a position in the retail

dry goods store of McLean Bros., which

two of his brothers had established in

1869. He became the a member of this

firm in 1898 and the partnership was

continued until 1911, when he with­

drew. In 1912 Mr. McLean established

the business of John McLean, Inc., for

which he erected the spacious and attractive

biulding at 213 Main street,

which his store has since occupied. Associated

with him in the establishment

and management of the business were

his sons, John R. McLean and Ronald

A. McLean, and his daughter, Miss

Christine McLean, now Mrs. George


Mr. McLean remained active in the

business and gave personal and cordial

greeting to as many of the patrons of

the establishment as possible until the

time of his final illness. It is doubtful

if any merchant in the city had a

greater number of personal acquaintances

among the people of Danbury

and the surrounding country than he


He was a member of the First Congregational

church and also of the

Ridge wood Country CJub, the Danbury

Club, the Danbury Business Association,

and of the Masonic bodies of

Danbury. Union Lodge, F. and A. M.;

Eureka Chapter, R. A. M; Wooster

Council, R. and 6. M., and Crusader

Commandery, Knights Templars, and

also Pyramid Temple, Nobles of the

Mystic Shrine, of Bridgeport.

In 1885 Mr. McLean married Miss

Jessie Menzies, of Danbury, whose

death occurred in February, 1931. He

is survived by three sons, John R. Mc­

Lean and Ronald A. McLean, of Danbury,

and Duncan M. McLean, of

Bridgeport, and two daughters, Mrs.

George Ferrier, of Danbury, and Mrs.

H. H. Williamson, of Bridgeport, and

by one brother, David McLean, of Danbury,

and one sister, Mrs. Grace Henderson,

of Hartford.

The fdneral service was held at his

late home, 62 Deer Hill avenue, Saturday

afternoon, the Rev. John M. Deyo,

minister of the First Congregational

church, officiating.

The attendance at the service was

large and the many floral tokens included

pieces from the employees of

John McLean. Inc., Danbury Lodge of

Elks, Board of Managers of the Danbury

Hospital, First Congregational

church. Union Lodge, F. and A. M.,

Pyramid Temple, Nobles of the Mystic

Grass Fire Season

Started This Week

The first of a series of grass fires

gave cause for an alarm sent into

"Central" by Mrs. Fred Grifiln last

Tuesday afternoon.

There was not much fire or damage,

but it was an opportunity to try out

the new Packard Fire Service Car,

which worked perfectly. Before the

grass fire season is over it will undoubtedly

prove its economic worth as

compared with running the big La


Tuesdays fire was caught in the bud,

which classes it as one that did not

amount to much and really was not

necessary to call out the fire company.

It is strange unless a fire burns

down a house or two and endangers

life and property some will always

remark, "why call out the fire company

for a little fire like that?" When

in fact it's the little fire promptly reported

and extinguished that should

receive the favorable remarks instead

of tlie action being ridiculed.

Later, #cm the same day the Patterson

Fire Company were called to extinguish

a large grass fire south of the

State Police Barracks on route 22.

They had a big job on their hands but

put out every spark of fire before any

serious damage was done to the Barracks

or Mr. Elting's house and barns.

Of the above schedule Coach Geesman

only expects to win about half of

the games. The second and third games

are believed to be the hardest and both

Katonah games will be worth a cold

ride to see.

The girl's schedule is about washed

up, with only three games on the schedule

and unless such schools as Central

High, Carmel and Pawling come

through with a date with our girls

we'll miss a lot of feminine action on

the basketball courts this winter.

It is apparent that the athletic trend

for girls is toward afternoon games of

the intramural variety.

Readers Question

"Reporter's" Meaning

In a recent issue of the Putnam

County Reporter, of Cold Spring, N.

Y., appeared the item quoted below.

The Reporter's use of the language

caused amusement to several people,

so It is reprinted for the benefit of

others who may smile at the peculiar

use of words. The Reporter states:

'Dennis Durkin has returned to the

St. Lawrence O'Yoole Church and

Parochial School for the winter as

caretaker after spending the summer

months in St. Lawrence OToole Cemetery."

Dr. Payson Smith, Commissioner of

Education for Massachusetts, recently

made this statement:

"There has been some discussion

about eliminating some of the newer

things in education, that the things

that have come last into the program,

including physical education, music

and art, should be the first to go. I

am not at all of that point of view. I

am trying to believe that If we study

our program with a view to eliminating

something, we might eliminate

what came in the 18th and 19th centuries,

and not those of the 20th. The

things that have come into the educational

program in the latter century

have presumably been thought out in

relation to the needs of the children

of the century. Threfore I think the

programs of music and art. and programs

having to do with health and

with recreational opportunities, are not

among the first to go, but among the

last, because they have been thought

out in relation to the needs of the

modern child."

Brewster Merchants

To Trim Windows

Brewster merchants went on record

last year at Christmas time of decorating

their store windows more attractively

than at any other time in

the village's history.

This year there is every indication

that our Main street store windows

will be even more elaborate than last

year and each merchant is planning

on special lighting effects during the

evening; so there will not be a dead

spot from one end of our main thoroughfare

to the other. .

Such cooperation on the part of the

merchants is worthy of favorable comment

and a good thare of genuine

home trade. Keep these things hi mind

when you are cashing your Christmas

club check.

That a crooked stick burns just as

well as a straight one should be the

guiding rule in cutting the winter fuel

supply. The demand for wood as a coal

substitute will be greater this year

than In any year since the coal strike,

and the temptation will be to clear

cut a wooded area as the quickest and

cheapet way to get the needed' cords

of wood, says J. A. Cope of the department

of forestry at Cornell University.

But a judicious use of the axe

in cutting crooked, diseased, defective,

forked and leaning trees, will assure

the winter's fuel and the wood lot is

left In better shape for future growth.

Big, limby, wolf trees, particularly

of beech, take up too much room in

the wood lot. Such trees should be

used for fuel to allow the better kinds

to grow into straight timber. On a

conservative estimate hard wood wood

lots may be expected to yield from

half a standard cord of wood to threequarters

of a cord to the acre each

year without lessening the capital

growing stock. Wise cutting in the

wood lot proves an exception to the

maxim "you can't eat your cake and

have it too" for one can certainly burn

fuel wood and have a better wood lot,

he says.

Guernsey Leads

New York Sires

The Guernsey bull. Reservation Pirate

87216, owned by L. T. Hull, of

Wyoming comity, leads dairy sires of

all breeds in New York state for transmitting

high production of butterfat

to his daughters as recognized by the

United States department of agriculture,

according to S. J. Brownell, of

the New York state college of agriculture.

Records show that five daughters of

this bull averaged 10,518 pounds of

milk and 589 pounds of butter to the

cow a year. The production of the

mothers of these daughters averaged

8,148 pounds of milk and 461 pounds

of butterfat. This is an increase of

2,370 pounds of milk or 29.1 per cent

and 128 pounds of fat or 27.8 per cent.

The five daughters gave a total of

648 pounds more of butterfat a year

than their mothers. With butterfat at

forty cents a pound, the Reservation

Pirate is in increasing his owner's income

about $256 a year.

This record is all the more remarkable,

Professor Brownell points out,

because the mothers produced an average

of as much as 461 pounds of

butterfat. Many breed bulls can increase

the production of their daughters

when used in herds that average

300 pounds of butterfat, but few bulls

can increase a 400-pound herd average.

Only eight of the 112 proved sires

of all breeds In New York state have

daughters that average more than 500

pounds of butterfat to the cow a year

in dairy herd Improvement associations.

Reservation Pirate 87216 replaces the

Jersey bull, Maple Slope Gypsy Gamboge,

that previously held the State

record with 8,478 pounds of milk and

550 pounds of butterfat. Following Reservation

Prlate in order of transmitting

ability the second and third bulls

are Jerseys and the next 25, in order,

are Holsteins.

Of the 112 bulls proyed through

dairy herd improvement associations

in New York state, 11 are Guernseys.

Of these 11 three have transmitted an

average production of more than 466

pounds of butterfat to their daughters.

Four Guernsey bulls increased

the milk production of their daughters

as compared with that of the bulls'

own dams and five have increased the

butterfat of their daughters as compared

with the mothers of these

"Robin Hood" Obtained Infor-

•nation About Jewels on

Handball Court.

Newark, N. J.—Affable, cultured,

yet well versed In the jargon of the

underworld, Arthur Barry, regarded as

America's most cunning and dangerous

Jewel robber, gave police details of his

astonishing career of crime.

He pictured himself as a sort of

modern, romantic Robin Hood who

robbed only the wealthy, from which

he confessed, police said, of thieving

between $5,000,000 and $10,000,000 in


Barry, who made a daring escape

from Auburn prison three years ago,

was captured in a farmhouse near

Andover, N. J., by a ruse. He accepted

his arrest qnietly, but regretted

he had no chance to "shoot It ont"

with the detectives. He remarked:

Life Term Awaits Him.

"If I'd had the chance I'd have shot

It out until the last bullet, and kept

that for myself. What's waiting for

me nowT The book."

"The book" Is thieves' Jargon for

life Imprisonment.

Barry insisted he had nothing to do

with the Lindbergh baby kidnaping.

He was questioned about the abduction,

because a ladder was found at

the scene of the kidnaping, and because

a footprint might have been

that of a lame man.

Barry frequently used a ladder, and

he is lame from a hip wound.

The thief disclosed he had enough

of the proceeds of bis criminal career

to yield an Income of nearly $100 a


Robbed Only Wealthy.

Long Island, Miami, Palm Beach and

Key West were the most profitable

fields for his operations, Barry told

inquisitors. Be said:

The fat old matrons there loved

to play handball with me. I'd find out

where they lived, and then put on a

surprise party for them.

"I robbed only the wealthy. If a

woman can carry around a pearl

necklace, she knows where her breakfast

is coming from.

"She knows where she can get

strawberries and cream In December,

even if.that pearl necklace Is gone."

Daniel left home in July with

a casual goodby and failed to return.

Mrs. Sullivan was much concerned,

but there wasn't anything she could

Recently she read that "Daniel Sullivan"

Identified the body as that of her Daniel.

She sent a mortician to give Daniel

a funeral be could be proud of.

While on ber way to tell some friends

about bis death she came face to

"You're dead!" she exclaimed.

"You're cuckoo," retorted Daniel.

"God the Only Cause and Creator"

Is the subject of the Lesson-Sermon

In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on

Sunday? December 4. The Golden Text

is from Psalms 75:1: "Unto thee, O

God, do we give thanks, unto thee do

we give thanks; for that thy name is

near thy wondrous works declare."

Among the citations which comprise

the Lesson-Sermon is the following

from the Bible: "In the beginning God

created the heaven and the earth."

(Genesis 1:1). The Lesson-Sermon also

Includes the following from the

textbook of Christian Science, "Science

and Health with Key to the Scriptures,"

by Mary Baker. Eddy: "There

is but one primal cause. Therefore

there can be no effect from any other

cause, and there can be no reality* in

aught which does not proceed from

The two shawled old ladles, both

such victims of rheumatism that

watching their neighbors and gossiping

cheerful sitting room.

"I think," said Martha, "that 'Vinla

"Well, they say." said Julia, "It was

until Ben up and broke one. They

to another—silly young things they

complacently. "They sure are


It was really unfortunate that the

from their post at the window quite

so soon. Hardly had they scuttled out

to the store than Ben Cooper walked

slowly down the street, paused a moment

at Miss Lavinia's clematis-hung

"Is it possible," Ben was thinking,

"that I am going to see the only woman

He's called there now half a dozen

times. If what everybody tells me is

A few minutes later, the Bradley

sisters were rewarded for repeated

trips into the parlor' by seeing the

courtly figure of Mr. Thomas Wendell

emerge from their neighbor's house

across the street. They would have

given much to have heard what he

said as be lifted his hat to 'Vinla who

stood In the doorway.

"1 can count on your answer Wednesday

without fail? I thank you."

That evening, well after dark, when

Julia and her sister were peaceably

knitting together, Ben Cooper made

bis way to Lavinia's. They knew

nothing of his visit Lavinia herself,

when she saw his once familiar figure

at her door, drew back with her hand,

still white and slender, against her

throat "Why, Ben—" she breathed.

"It's me. 'Vinla," he said hoarsely.

"I—I—cr—that is. I just had to see

"Tell me, Lavinia," he demanded

Lavinia gave an amused, throaty

chuckle. "I don't know what business

it is of yours." she said, "but I'm perfectly

willing to tell you he's coming

for an answer Wednesday."

"Wednesday." repeated Ben helplessly.

"Wednesday." Then, with one

single stride, be came over to her and

picked her up In his two strong arms.

"When he comes," he said harshly,

"you tell him you're going to be married

on Thursday to we. What fools

we bave been. La vinla! What years

we have wusted!" his voice broke and

he pressed his head against Lavinia's

hair, as Lavinia's two arms crept slowly

up around his neck.

came for his answer, nor did it apparently

displease him.

"I've dreaded to sell them. Mr.

In its annual report the radio research

how radio rangeflnders traced the

used is to record the waves of

radio "static" sent out by the storm.

With this method.they claimed to be

able to detect the birth of thunderstorms

as far as 2.000 miles away

and as high as six and seven miles

above the earth. Resides, they were

able to follow the path of such storms

across the country, making It possible'

to warn air routes or cities In their


How Spelling* Differ

Some of the principal differences In

English and United States' spelling are

the Inclusion of the letter M u*Mn the

English form In such words as labour

and honour* the substitution of "que"

or "k" In such words as check

(cheque), the use of the letter "s" Instead

of "z" In such words as organisation

(organization), the substitution

of "re" for "er" In such words as theater

(theatre), the use of the letter

"y" Instead of "I" In such words as

tire (tyre).

The leaves of a tree correspond to

although under ordinary circumstances

what we get out of some of the nations

of western Europe it looks very much

as though Uncle Sam can charge up

the three hundred million which Mr.

TtfcAdoo loaned to Russia to experience.

But so far as the other governments

which owe us are concerned, there can

be little doubt that if Uncle Same

keeps a stiff upper lip, as he shows

every evidence of doing, we will get at

least a part of what is due us.


Milk in Disguise.

Although milk is undoubtedly the

most important single food for children,

it has no value unless it goes

where it can do its work—inside the

child. Comparatively few children refuse

to drink milk and those who do

refuse to drink it can generally be induced

to take it in some other form.

It is up to the mother to think of other

forms in which to give it.

At breakfast, the milk may occasionally

be flavored with cocoa, or the

cereal may be cooked in milk and

served with top milk. Thin white sauce

poured over crisp hot toast may be acceptable

in place of plain milk toast.

Scrambled eggs furnish three tablespoons

of milk to each egg'; or the eggs

may be poached in milk and the milk

in which they are poached poured over

the toast on which they are served.]

For luncheon or supper almost any]

vegetable or vegetable combination

may be sccessflly served with white

sauce, or as ^vegetable Umbales. Toast

with cheese sauce supplies milk in two

forms, as does cheese soifle, while any

kind of souffle makes an excellent milk

dish. Creamed meat, fish or chicken,

cream soups and scalloped dishes are

other possible ways to use milk.

Desserts probably make the greatest

appeal to the child and they offer

Buy Your 1933

Auto Plates Now

Early purchase of the 10S3 licenses

for passenger automobiles was urged

upon all vehicle owners in this state

by Charles A. Harnett, Commissioner

of Motor Vehicles, who also stated that

on December 1, in every issuing office

in the state, the plates were on sale in

strict numerical sequence beginning

with number 101 of the latter prefix

assigned to each office. Commercial,

omnibus, trailer, semi-trailer, tractor,

suburban and ambulance registrations

for 1933 are not due until March 1,

1933, therefore plates for these types

of vehicles will not go on sale until

February 15.

It is hoped to have a heavy sale of

plates early in December so as to eliminate

the last minute rush that always

prevails during the several days preceding

the first of the new year and

the issuance of choice, numbers on the

first day will, it is thought, enconrage

the public to procure the plates.

Because of the change in the law

enacted last winter and which became

eaectlve in July, the commercial plate

year begins March 1, 1933.

A Szechwan Medicine Man.

Prepared by National Geographic Society.

Washington. O. C.-WNO Service,

SZECHWAN province, China, center

of recent disturbances, is one

of the richest, most populous

and picturesque regions of China.

Marco Polo described It as a cultivated

garden with great cities. A more modern

sobriquet is "The Garden of Asia."

Chungking, the Yangtze port, is a

great doorway of Szechwan. It is a

walled city with 000.000 inhabitants,

situated at the confluence of the

Yangtze and the Klaling rivers.

Through the fiction of a foreign treaty

it is an open seaport notwithstanding

the fact that It is 1,500 miles from

the coast and 1,000 feet above the level

of the sea. It Is now the head of

steam navigation on the Yangtze, the

seat of maritime customs for tin

West, the point of distribution for all

western-borne commerce and the as*

cembling depot for all shipments to

other parts of China and foreign lands.

The chief exports to America and

other countries are paint oils of the

tung-tree, medicines, bristles, feathers

and hides, and, of manufactured articles,

silks, satins and crepes of the

finest grades.

Confined between its two rivers, this

city, like New York, is growing tnto

the air. It has no suburban lines to

relieve its surplus population, and

real estate has accordingly Increased

in the past decade from 100 to 200

per cent in value, making it profitable

to erect fine foreign buildings, in

which it excels any purely native city

in China.

The English, French, German, Japanese,

and Americans compete for Its

trade. United States trade is represented

in kerosene, sewing machines,

cigarettes, patent medicines, hardware,

and nulls.

From Chungking northwestward 800

miles to Chengtu. the capital, one travels

by sedan chair, borne on the shoulders

of two. three or four bearers, as

one's avoirdupois requires or his.Troy

weight permits; for the rich ride In

fours by choice, as do the portly without


In addition to the chair-bearers, the

foreign traveler requires a coolie to

bear his cot and bedding, another to

carry his food, and an attendant to

cook it A small party easily becomes

a regiment, and If an armed escort accompanies

It, as is usual, the party

resembles an army.

City of the Dead.

Beyond the walls of Chungking the

traveler enters the city of the dead.

Here are square-built tombs of the

Ming period; near by are the crowded

lines of public graves for beggars and

the very poor; and then, far away to

the top of the hill, about four miles

distant, are the regulation mounds of

Chinese graves, with here and there

beautifully carved, terraced mausoleums.

A more orderly section of broad extent,

reserved for Mohammedan

graves, shows that the followers of

the Crescent are no mean or inconsiderable

company among the city's


Over these sleeping camps the telegraph

lines are now strung and the

Chengtu railway will tunnel beneath

them. Factories and homes are push

Ing them farther from the city, which

is a sure indication that the hand of

superstition is losing its grip, for a

quarter century ago this would have

spelled riot

The Sczechwanese from of old have

been expert workers in stone, as is

evidenced by the many tombs, homes

and places of defense carved deep Into

the rocky cliffs along the rivers. Their

Chinese conquerors have inherited this

art along with their land, for the country

abounds with artistically carved

stone bridges, and memorial arches of

massive proportions ornately wrought

in stone.

One never sees a monument dedicat

ed to a warrior, but many to virtuous

widows, who refused to remarry aft

er their husbands had died. Others

reared by royal permit have the four

characters \Vu Kiu Tung Tang, five gen

erations living together in one home

This, though not common, is by no

means unknown in West China, am)

surely. If five generations can live to

gether In one home and live peace­

ably, they deserve recognition, and the

Chinese accord It.

West China might be called "The

Land of the Pagoda," for nearly every

city has Its towering sentinel from

three to fifteen stories in height They

are generally placed upon some eminence

overlooking the city they protect

and may have served as watch

towers in times of trouble, but the

real purpose of their erection most

likely was to exert a benign influence

upon the fung Btiei—the spirits of wind

and wave that bring prosperity and

ward off disaster.

Out from the crush and the hum of

the city of the living and past the

quiet camp of the dead, one comes to

the country—not however, the country

of the western world; rather a mass

of terraced paddy fields and farm gardens,

with human beings always in

sight People are the only feature of

the landscape that cannot be left behind

or ignored; so one stops to glance

at the Inhabitants of Szechwan, who

surpass in rugged diversity of race

the variety of the province's scenery-

The People of Szechwan.

More valuable than its rich mineral

deposits and superbly tilled lands, the

people of Szechwan are at once its

prime asset and Interest

Four epochs mark the Szechwanese

and help to explain them:

First the slow retreat of the ancient

aborigines up into the mountains

of the south and west and the

occupation of the fertile land by the

oncoming victorious Chinese.

Second, the ruthless Chinese wars,

culminating in the ravages of the tyrant

Chang, who, In accordance with

his slogan, "Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!

Kill! Kill! KIU! for aU men are evil."

left many of its cities desolate and its

fields without Inhabitants. .

Third, the repeopllng of the province

by emigrants from the north, central,

and southeastern provinces of China,

who, fusing with the scattered Chinese

and aboriginal inhabitants and with

Mohammedan mercenaries from western

Asia, formed the composite Szechwanese,

styled "Chinese, with a difference."

Fourth, the contact of Christian life

and thought upon these peoples, a period

of reforms and revolutions, a

transition from the old order to the

New China of today and the China

of promise of tomorrow.

Remnants of Many Races.

The western part of Szechwan

might well be called the Museum of

the Human Races, the as-yet-undiscovered

happy hunting ground of the

ethnologist and physiognomist Here

are to be found the surviving remnants

in the most heroic struggle for

existence that humanity has ever

waged and who. for lack of a fetter

term, are called the "Tribesmen."

As one crosses the Mln river, which,

flowing south divides the province Into

east and west, and moves westward,

towards the snow-covered mountains,

he comes upon the shambling homes

of these people, hidden In Impassable

ravines or perched upon cliff or moun

tain side, of which they seem to be

part and counterpart; for as the irre

sistlble side thrust of continental Asia

pushed these mountain masses high

Into the snows and left them crumpled,

of powerful peoples of Asia, in

their movements toward this center,

Shut Off Rainstorm

Greeley, Colo.—When it rained

here recently, and flood waters

started to flow Into tbe basements

In fact, one reliable officer reported

that a caller requested that

the officers "Just bad to come up

Carl H. Loh, wealthy Tarrytown society

man, civic worker and churchman,

has been revealed In Surrogate's

court in White Plains.

Loh, realty developer and broker,

died June 8. He was a vestryman in

the exclusive Christ Episcopal church

of Tarrytown, N. Y., where Washington

Irving worshiped. He was a member

of the Conqueror book and ladder

company, a volunteer unit composed

of blueblooded residents of the village.

He was a familiar figure In Tarrytown

drawing rooms.

His will left a $2,000 fund to supply

Thanksgiving and New Year's day

dinners to the fire company, and a

Hie interest in tbe bulk of his estate,

listed as "more than $30,000," to his

secretary for twenty-one years, Sarah

II. Elliott, tbe estate to revert to charity.

But In his will he left one avenue

open that led to his past—bequests

of $5,000 each to his mother,. Mrs.

Mary Carter, and sister, Daisy, of

Macon, Ga., not knowing they were

dead. Another sister, Mrs. Rosette

Carter Perdue, wife of a negro farmer

at Hyde Park, went Into Surrogate's

court and asked to be declared

Lob's sister, and to be given the $10,-

000 ns next of kin to ber dead mother

and sister.

After examining- specimens of the

dead man's handwriting, Surrogate

George A. Slater stated he hsd little

doubt that Lob was really Howell

Cobb Carter, a Georgia mulatto.
