Mercer could not stand tho strain of
so many people being on the grounds
so he went home Saturday night.
There was an enormous crowd here
yesterday and it was a delightful change
from the dismal monotony of Camp
life. We were startled from our slum
bers Sunday forenoon by our old com
rade Bob McKenzie who still litis the
camera craze and satisfied his desire by
taking a snap shot of several of us as
we were just waking up.
On the Corner.
Last night's meeting was held at the
(ircen Mountain Trotting Bark, and
while the club assembled in the grand
stand, your Inspector was comfortably
seated on top of the judges stand, and
the first feature to attract my attention
was a half mile run between a citizen
of Topshani and one from East Orange.
The contest was around the track, anil
the slakes were, a right to use Giles
Durkcc's gun boat for coast defense
purposes against any Barre people who
came over into their country Ashing on
Sunday or undertake to abduct any
speckled beauties from a posted pond
or brook. It was a close contest and
would have been a dead heat, if at the
wire the East Orange racer had not
fell in the sand and lost his chance for
another heat. The club will now en
deavor to hire the boat from (files and
let the Topsham lish warden take it, so
that he will give a warm reception to
our merchants, lawyers, doctors and
jack at all trades who stray into that
section atter twelve pounders. The
reason why the club objects to the arlists
of rod and hook going over there is that
they want to keep these individuals in
Barre to carry out the schemes proposed
by the Club. But had the Inspector
cared to reveal his whereabouts he would
have informed the kickers that the gun
bout would not be allowed to leave the
Granite City so long as the Spanish fleet
nm n oi tee n o verraJten by im .irpson r '
The next number on the evening pro
gramme was the report of the agent
sent up to East Barre to organize the
branch club. He reported that two
nights ago the Club held a meeting on
the steps" of the East Barre and Chelsea
depot and decided to delay tlie organi
zation of the club at mat place, unni
more men can be induced to job, He
told the kickers that the only topic dis
cussed at the East Barre wigwam was
the prospect of better railroad facilities
in that booming village. He said that
either the railroad company would have
to promise to run regular trains imu
that place or the electric railroad com
pany would be asked to build a line
from this city to that place. And the
Inspector joins in a loud "Amen" to
that action by the. East Barre club. Why
is it that East Barre is not given better
railroad aeomniodtitions. It would be of
much benefit to the city if that hustling
village could have belter ways by which
the residents could reach the city. By
all means the Inspector hopes the East
Barre contingent of the club will not
rest until the proposed action is earned
to a succ ssful termination, (iive East
Barre the "Trolly" and justice will have
been done to that enterprising village
on tho border of the county.
The question of furnishing new dishes
for Company E was brought up and
every member of the, club was in favor
of asking the cily government to make
an appropriation for the object, as it
was argued that Barre has seat some
loyal lads to the front and ouirht to see
that thev have all possible comforts if
there are any comforis for a man in the
riny. The Inspector supposes that
the reason for wanting the city to pay
for the cups is owing to the club not

Intellect Against Intellect.
you want to see intellect play
against intellect," said a young lawyer,
yet in his enthusiasm, believing in
equity and the purity of the law, "you
should go down to the civil or the su
preme court when a big case is being
heard. It is not like sitting through a
criminal trial. A man's quickness and
eloquence are often assisted there by dra
matio details, but in the civil or su
preme courts a lawyer must depend
upon his own Mam aioue ana not upuu
emotional tricks. What a delight it Is
for me to listen to the wit, combats and
terse arenmeuts of two masters grown
gray at tho bar ! These men have at their
command the roaaing oi cwuscora jra...
Thev are armed with the humor of ex
perience and the cool sight of ago. Their
intellects, never having boen wasted in
idleness, are as fresh as a young girl's
dream of life and as unerring as a wood
man's rifle. When they take up an argu
ment on an important affair, it is not to
make a few palsied remarks. Siey go
iWn. nliinoiim into tho very core of
things. If need bo they begin to eluci
date law from its inception in the re
mntest confines of ancient civilizations,
and thev drift easily and gracefully
alone the centuries, giving a regular
comnendiuin of history as they go along.
To see these old fellows ordinarily you
would imacine that they were sleepy
and slow, but when they appear before
the bar their frames become erect, their
eyes flash and they thunder and roar as
if with voices of lions." New Orleans
