                       ARTICLE IX-PROMPT PAYMENT OF RENT

          It is agreed that if LESSEE shall fail to pay the rent or any
installment thereof as aforesaid within the ten (10) days after same shall
become due and payable and/or any additional rent as herein provided, although
no demand shall have been made for the same, or if LESSEE shall violate or fail
or neglect to keep and perform any of the covenants, conditions, rules,
regulations and agreements herein contained on the part of LESSEE to be kept and
performed or if demised premises shall become vacant or deserted, then, in each
and every such event, from thenceforth and at all times thereafter, at the
option of the LESSOR, the LESSEE'S right of possession shall thereupon cease,
and the LESSOR shall be entitled to possession of demised premises and to re-
enter the same without notice to quit or demand of rent or demand of possession,

to LESSEE by LESSOR. LESSOR, however, shall not be obligated to give a notice to
cure more than two times during each year of the lease term or more than two
times each leased year during the extension thereof.  Such re-entry by the
LESSOR shall not operate to release the LESSEE from any rent to be paid or
covenants to be performed hereunder during the full term of this Lease.  The
LESSOR shall make all reasonable efforts to mitigate the LESSEE'S obligations to
the LESSOR by attempting to relet the demised premises.  For the purpose of

alterations in or to the leased premises as may be necessary to place the same
in good order and condition.  The LESSEE shall be liable to the LESSOR for the
cost of such reasonable repairs or alterations, and all reasonable expenses of
such reletting.  If the sum realized or to

rent provided in this Lease, the LESSOR, at his option, may require the LESSEE
to pay such deficiency to be realized during the term of the reletting. The
LESSEE shall not be entitled to any surplus accruing as a result of the
reletting. The LESSEE agrees to pay, as additional rent, reasonable attorneys
fees and other expenses incurred by the LESSOR in enforcing any of the
obligations under this Lease. No provision of this Lease shall be deemed to have
been waived by LESSOR unless such waiver shall be in writing signed by LESSOR.
No payment by LESSEE or receipt by LESSOR of a lesser amount than the monthly
installments of rent herein stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on
account of the earliest stipulated rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement
on any check or any letter accompanying any check or payment as rent be deemed
an accord and satisfaction, and LESSOR may accept such check or payment without
prejudice to LESSOR'S right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any
other remedy in this Lease provided.

                             ARTICLE X-TERMINATION

          In the event of any termination of the Lease by the LESSOR for any of
the reasons set forth herein or elsewhere in the Lease, termination shall not
relieve the LESSEE from its liabilities or responsibilities for the rental

made or hereafter to be made upon the security thereof, and shall be
automatically subject and subordinate to the lien of any mortgage or mortgages
which at any time may be made a lien upon or affecting the premises herein

covering the fee interest of the leased premises, obtain from such mortgagee a
'Non Disturbance' Agreement, in form reasonably acceptable to counsel to the

                            ARTICLE XIII-NON-WAIVER

          That upon the failure of the LESSOR to insist upon a strict
performance of any of the terms, conditions and covenants herein, it shall not
be deemed a waiver of any rights or remedies that the LESSOR may have and shall
not be deemed a waiver by them of any subsequent breach or default in the terms,
conditions and covenants contained herein. The non-waiver provisions of this
Article shall also apply in favor of the LESSEE.


          That the LESSOR covenants that the LESSEE on paying said rent and
performing the covenants aforesaid shall and may peaceably and quietly have,
hold and enjoy the leased premises during all of the term and this covenant is a

the initial term of this Lease, or any renewal option term, or during such final

          E.  If a dispute should arise between LESSOR and LESSEE with respect
to the number of days required to repair or rebuild any damage pursuant to this
Article, either or both parties shall

request a mutually agreed upon arbitrator to make a determination of the number
of days so required.  Such request shall also contain an agreement by the
parties to hold the insurance company harmless for any good faith determination
made by it.  The determination so made shall be conclusive and binding on the

corporation, or transfer or assign this tease without the prior written consent
of LESSOR, nor shall any subletting or assignment hereof be effected by
operation of law or otherwise than by the prior written consent of LESSOR.
However, in neither case shall the LESSOR unreasonably withhold consent to such
a subletting or assignment.

                           ARTICLE XXV-CONDEMNATION

shall be the sole property of the LESSOR; provided, however, that nothing
contained herein shall prevent the LESSEE from collecting moving expenses as
provided by the Connecticut General Statutes. The LESSOR shall give the LESSEE
written notice of any condemnation within five (5) days after the LESSOR becomes
aware of such condemnation. There shall be no compensation to LESSEE for
destruction of the Lease term. In the event that less than all of the premise
are condemned by any competent condemning authority, the LESSEE shall have the
right to:

          (a) Terminate this Lease as of the earlier date of the transfer of
title or the date of the taking of possession by the condemning authority, in
which event any unearned rent paid or credited will be refunded by the LESSOR to
the LESSEE; or

          (b) Continue this Lease in full force and effect with a reduced fixed
rental commensurate with the reduced area and/or with reduced utilities to the
premises in lieu of the amount of rental herein provided, which reduced rental
will become effective on the earlier date of the title transfer or the date of
such taking. The LESSEE shall elect between these rights and shall give notice
to the LESSOR of its election within sixty (60) days after the date when
possession of the premises is acquired by the condemning authority.  Any taking
of fifty (50%) percent or less of the parking area in front of the building
shall not be considered a substantial condemnation so as to entitled LESSEE to a
reduction of

rent, provided the rear parking area remains as now established.


          Upon default by the LESSEE, the LESSEE agrees to pay any reasonable
attorneys fees, court costs, or other expenses, incurred by the LESSOR in the
successful enforcement of any provision of this Lease.

                              ARTICLE XXVII-SIGNS

          The LESSOR will advise the LESSEE the size and location of any sign
that is currently approved for the leased premises.

          In the event the LESSEE desires a sign other than the one already
approved for the demised premises, subject to the written approval of the
LESSOR, the LESSEE will at its own expense have any sign it requires approved by
the Planning & Zoning Commission of the Town of KENT.  In the event a zoning
variance is required, the LESSEE will at its own expense petition the Zoning
Board of Appeals of the Town of KENT to obtain the variance. The failure of the
LESSEE to obtain a variance is not a conditioned precedent to the inception of
this lease pursuant to its terms.

                          ARTICLE XXVIII-PARKING AREA

          LESSOR shall provide a parking area for the common use of the
occupants of the shopping center. LESSEE shall have the nonexclusive right, to

KENT zoning regulations for the continued use and occupancy of the leased
premises by the LESSEE and LESSEE'S business operation.

and repair pipes, cables, conduits, plumbing, vents and wires, in and to and
through the demised premises, as and to the extent that the LESSOR may now or
hereafter deem to be necessary or convenient for the proper operation and
maintenance of the building which the demised premises are located or any other
portion of the shopping center. All such work shall be done, so far as practical
in such a manner as to avoid interference with the LESSEE'S use of the premises.

                            ARTICLE XXX-ALTERATIONS

improvements or repairs after the commencement of the Lease as described in
Article III to the leased premises shall be at the LESSEE'S sole cost and
expense and that prior to making any alterations, additions, improvements or
repairs, the LESSEE shall obtain the written consent of the LESSOR, which
consent will not unreasonably be withheld or delayed. All alterations, additions
or improvements whether temporary or permanent in character, which may be made
on the leased premises either by the LESSOR or the LESSEE shall be the property

the LESSEE at the end of the Lease term.
