" Last Friday," says tho Now York Sun,
" the whole country lay ewelterlng undor the
flerce hoat. Comfortable temperatures wero
roported onlv from Wyomlng nnd from tho top
of Mount Washington. Many persons were
prostratod and some killed by tho heat. The
blg bridge was shunned by both pedestrians
and drlvers. On euch a day everybody must
fool thankful that the earth stlll turns on Its
axis, for tbero comes a little rellef after sun

Somk of our Massachusetts exchanges nro
publlahlngan account of a patriotie famlly ln
that state that sent six aoldlers into the Union

that furnlshed seven sons for the nrmy. Mr.
Levl Lackey of Swanton Bent aevensons, slx of
whom are stlll living. One dled in tho sorvlco
and his agpd mother drnws a penslon on his
Bccount. Seven Shontell brothers of Middle
sex served in the rebellion and tho mother
draws a pension for one that dled ln the ser
vice. A mother reddlng ln Iowa applled for a
penslon, representlng that she had eloven sons
In the army. Tho penslon ofllce refused her n
pension, but congres voted her ono on account
of the many soldiors she had f nrnished.

Ocn Groton correspondent writes: " Qulte a
perious accldent happoned at the saw.mlll of
A. H. Ricker last Sntnrday. A young Gnrman,

canght his left hand in the revolving knlves
'and In an instant his hand and wrist half way
to the elbow wero gone. It was necessary to
nmputate tho mangled limb, leaving a stump
some three Inches in length, nnd the young
man Is dolng well at prosent. He is from the
provlnce of Saxonv In Prussia, and had been
at work for Mr. Ricker nbout flve days. He
was landed at Castlo Garden in New York
just two weeks before the day of the accident
and Mr. Ricker hlred him from the agent at
Essex Junctlon. It is a sad accident, as the
young man is nmong strangers and cannot

Tiik plan for reorganlzlng the Vermont rail
roads has recelved a teraporary set back from
an injunctlon granted by Jndge Field of tho
Massachusetts supreme court, at tho reqnest of
the plaintlff in the stiit of Roland G. Hnzard

and the Consolldated Rallroad Company of
Vermont. Mr. Hazard is one of the stockhold
ers of the Vermont and Canada company nnd
one of the mlnority opposed to tho plan of
conoolidatlon. A hearing has been hold, at
which tho polnts arcued were conflned entlrcly
to law, and the defendants clalmed that, if the
plan were defeatnd, n retnrn to rhaos in rall'
road affalrs In Vermont would be the result,
On tho other hand, lt was clalmed that the
court was bound to construe the statute of Ver
mont as it found lt, and lf the plan to be
carried out wns ns now suegested, then lt was
not so exprewd In the stntute. Judge Field
took tho matter under conslderatlon, bnt intl
maled that tlio plac to settlo tho controverey

Mit. Edwahi) Johnson of the Freo Press has

Space forblds our givlng nnythlng further than

solemn sllence of tho nlght was harsbly broken
by the hoarso crles of command, the tread of
the soldlers, the rnttle of arms, the nelghing
nnd prnnclng of horses." A little lnter he
glvea loosereln to his feellngs, and says: "Tlie

fadlng mlst rose In llght clouds from the calm,
stlll bosom of tlio Inko, cnrressed tho Bummlta
of the groen-covered hills and gently faded
away ln the expanso nbove." The only expla
natlon we can glve of this last paragraph is
that our worthy frlend had not boen up in
tlme to see the sun rlse for n good wlillo and
the slght rathor overcatne him. However, the
report was, ns n whole, well gotten up and
although Bomewhat ovordrawn, was nevertho
