hnvc been rustic ling tbo past week fit St.

crenndod ft few nights ngo, nnd on being
called on for a speech, made, os usuaI, n
fow happy rcinnrks nnd wound up by say
ing: "You havo n delightful plneo hero
in tbo summer,' how It l in tbo winter 1
don't know and 1 don't intend t." Ills
needless to sty that on that point Sher
man's head was level," as it is on most
subjects In general. Nothwithstanding
tho4 winters arc so sovcre bore, it sooms to
promote longevity. Vermont is ono of the
most healthy, if not the healthiest state in
the Union, nnd Middlelmry Is said to be
tho healthiest town In tlio elate. Thorco-
plo hardly ovor dlo of dlscnso hero, they
'dry up' nnd "fall away." Tho skin
gets as tight on their bones In old ago as a
heop skin on a drum head (forciblo if not
eloquent) and thoy gradually "fudo out."
When n person dies hero it is tho custom to
announco tho fact by
TOLLING TIIK HELL,
at elated intervals for n short time, and
then, striking tho samo in quick
succession for tbo ngo of tho deceased.
Last season, when wo woro hero, nnd en
sconced in tho barber's chair, enjoying the
luxury of a good shave, tlio boll com
menced "tolling." A friend, who was
with us, from tho west, not being posted,
asked for an explanation, and on our tell
ing him, wo also rcmarked'.that wo would
mako a bet with him that when tbo "ago"
of tho deceased was rapped out it would
not bo less than fifty. You may think
this was a grace thing to bet about, but as
the wager was only for tho ctaara, of
courso it all ended in smoke, anyway. But
to return, tho boll soon commoncod strik
ing, and wo both commenced counting
aloud, nnd continued on up to sixty or sev
enty, when our friend stopped through
shoer cxhnustion. "Wo struggled on to
ninety-nine, whon tho boll ceased. Wo nt
onco rcpairod to tho church across
tho park to soo if tho old sexton had not
mado a mistako of half a contury
or so, whon wo wero told
that no misUko had been made an old
lady, a good old soul, who had completed
her ninety-ninth birthday, had "faded"
out. Surely, wo could eay in hor caso Key
Sinco our lust lotter it bus rained, wo
