Two clergymen, one a Unlversalist, the other
of the Congregational faltli, recently placed
thelr slmilar looklng vallses near together ln
the stntion at West Randolph. On tho nrrival
of the traln, tho Congregntlonallst selzed tho
wrong vallse nnd started oft with it, but tho
mlstake wns seen by tho Unlversalist brother
nnd an exchange mado. The result, if tho
error hnd not been rectlfied nnd they had de-
llvered each tho other s sermon, we leave our
readers to imaglne.
The Tunbridge corrcspondent of nn oxchnngo
reports thnt n headstone furnished by tho gov
ernment wns recently erected at tho gravo of
J. W. Marston, by some soldlers of the last
war, pormission belng given by n woman
claimlng to be hia nearest relative. Wlthln
half an hour nf ter the stono was set, this woman
toro lt up and, after defacing it and drngging
it nway, pilod n lot of rubbish on the grave. lt
would seem that tho law mlght bo invoked to
punish Buch nn outrage.
In roply to our item that A. 1'. Chllds wns
not to leave tho stato that inveterato punster
says in the last lly'onner : ' ' Our Montpelier
cotomporary may watch-a-man first-rate, but
It don't watch a Chlld worth a cent. It is Bafo
to tay that the item is qulte llable to bo very
inaccurate. Our esteemed co-scribblers should
console themselves with tho fact that probablj
Mr. Chllds will nover agaln be n candidate for
any olllce, blg or little, ln Vermont, though
thls consolation should bo saddened with the
tearful tidlnga that Mr. Chllds may be ' un
comfortably near ' wheu othera are olected to
olllce or defeated."
Gen-ekal W. W. Lynde in tho Ileformcr
shows that thero was nn oxcess in the state
tax collected ln Brattleboro for tho yoars 1803
nnd 1801 over the tax levled, whlcb with intor
est amounta to 3,703.18. It is alleged that
dlscrepancies and errors exlst in nll the subse
queut years, exccpt two, down to 18S3, but
wbat the amount wlll be does not appenr. A
small part of the defklency may be accounted
for by abattmoiiiji and uUkollecled taxes. Cul
lect Ilerrlck is unable to see how there can
be any deficiency. If he owes the town any
money, he says he is anxious to pay it, and
asks that the entire matter be thoroughly In
vestigated by competent men.
The Dwigbt-Wiman club of New Yoik and
Toronto, Outario, with guests.drove up tho val
ley from Greenfield, Mass., last week, in an
old-time Concord coach, zigzaging their way
through Vermont and New Harapshlre towps
nlong the rlver. At West Randolph they wore
reclplents of the bountiful hospitality of W. II.
Duliois. Monday evenlng as they drove up to
tho l'avilion, ln thls village, the unusual spec
tacle attrncted much attentlon. The clubcon

go to Europe, nnother to tho interiorof Canada
nnd ngaln to some otber polnt. They show
good judgment ln coming to A'ermont in June,
aud they expressid great dellght with tho
scenery of tho ttate. From Montpelier they
went to Burlington,
M. J. FitA.NCibCO, secretary of the Vermont
Accident Association, makes the following ex
planation in regard to the case of Willlam
Smith of Victory the s titement of which in n
recent issuo of Tiii: Waiciiman was taken
from n Caledonia county paper: "Wllliam
Smith of Victory was Inbiired June 23, 1882,
p.ild the advance payinent, put ln n claim for
injury July 12, aud lald olt until it nmounted
to 520 05. We deducted 82 dues which he wns
owlng us and onenssessmentthen due of 52 80,
nnd paid hlm 21.85 on the 13th day of Sep
tember, 1882. Uo never pald a cent after thnt
up to tho tlme he waa klllcd ln January, 1883.
Tho astcssinent had run the thirty days, the
policy had lapsod nnd hnd been mnrked oil
the books before ho was killed. He rofused to
pay the ussessmcnt we made to pay others
aud now Mr. May wants ua to nssess those
whoni he refused to help, to pay hls claim
when hls pollcy had lapsed by hls own act and
no one to blanie but himself."
An accident ln the copper mino nt Ely last
woek Thursday rcsultod in the death of one
man, an Engllnhman nnmed Tope. Apieco of
rock weighlng some five hundred jxunds fell
from the roof upou the track or tramway and

Tho rock left the track at that polnt and Btruck
Mr. 1'ope on tho legs jnst above the kneos, cut
ting one leg off entirely oxcept n ploceof llesh
onone sldeaud breaklng the other leg. lle
was brought out as soon ns possible nnd taken
home, but dled shortly after. The shock wns
so grcnt that allhough fully consclous, he dld
not soffor greatly and dld not reallzo the fatal
oharacter of hla injurles. He was nn estl
mablo yonng.mnn and a devotod Chrlstian, aud
had been marrled but n few months. The
lunorul took placo at West Fairlee on Sunday,
nnd was nttouded by theOdd Fellows, of which

Thk Boston Journal prlnU tho following
statlstlcs ln relation to the Central Vermont
systemof railways: "Tho Vermont Central
and Vermont & Canada roads propor comprlse
187 miles of ranfn llne, the leaBOd llnes bring
lng the Central Vermont eystem up to 410
mlles. The Bo-cnlled trust roads have 110 loco
motlves and 2,23.'! cars. The gross enrninga of
the roads In 1881 wero 2,002,818 01, tho net
earnlngs belng 015,088.40. For the two yoars
endlng with 1880 the gross earnlngs were 84,
320,078.57 and the net earnlngs 1,220,025.27.
From 1870 to 1880 the gross earnlngs nggre
gated 25,000,01.0 and the net earnlngs over
88,000,000, maklng the annnal gross earnlngs
2,600,000 and the net earnlngs 8775,000 ou nn
average. Deductlng the nmount pald on
leased llnes pr nnnum sbout 8350,000 we
find a balance of 425,000 ns tho nveiage net
earnlngs of the roads elnco 1870, nnd which
can now be npplled on the samo basls of earn
lngs on tho payment of the lntorest on the now
87,000,000 of bonds of tho Consolldated Rnll
way of Vermont, nnd which Is now a flxcd
chargo of 8330,000 on the consolldated roads."
And now A. J, Wlllnrd, Esq., like nn tin
natutal monster, Is breathlug out " uncalled
for nbuso " on St. Johnsbury, hlmeelf a cttlzen
of that town. He wants the llstors to nnswer
some snch conundrums ns theso: Why wns not
15,000 of renl estato owned by the Flrst Nn
tional bank nppraised and sot in the 11st, nnd
why not n slmilar nmount owned by the Mcr
chants National? Why waa stock of tho former,
worth not less than 115, nnd of the latter
worth 112, apprnlsed nt par? Why was Mont
pelier bank stock owned ln St. Johnsbury and
which cannot bo purchased for less than fifty
per cent ndvnnco, npptalsod at par? Why wns
corporate property valued nt nnd paylng good
dlvldonds on 3,500,000, nppraised nt less than
a rallllon? These nnd other puzzllng thlngs
" Jnck" nsks tohnve oxplalned. Now, Brother
Stono, ns the only aource of " rellablo " Infor
raatlon, come out from under the bed, show
"thesplrlt of a mnn" nnd put to shamethls
pestlferous Wlllnrd, the unrellable Chase nnd
the lrreverent Harris, all of whom nre slnglng
tho Bamo old tune about the listing matters of
certnln interests whoso champlon you are sup
posed to be. The " inimicality " Bqueal is los
ing credlt. And whlle you nre nbout it, ex
plain how it can be that St. Johnsbury with
nearly five tlmes the area nnd doublo the popu-
lation, wtth Its rich farmlng landa nnd many
wealthy cltlzens, has n valuation only nbout
200,000 largor than Montpelier. Here are the
figures in regard to St. Johnsbury's valuation
taken from the Caleilonlan : Total real estato,
1,024,108; total personal proporty, 1,128,023;
total valuation, 3,052,131. The correspond.
lng items for Montpelier are: Real estate, 1,-
305,024; personal, 1,488,105; total, 2,851,110,
Montpeller's personal estate is more than
350,000 larger than St. Johnsbury's. There
are no uiaterial condltlons to oxplatn such a
wldo discrepancy. Those thlngs givo color to
tho allogntlons of lncapacity or disbonesty
ngninst tho llsters of your town. The Watcw
5ian called you out about a year ngo on a slml
lar showlng and dld not get any very definito
answer. The town has mnde n little Improve
ment since that tlme, but atlll there is room.
