MARTON.
Hr.A.vnER Suit Decided. The case
of John Tripp vs. C. B. Leland, where
the former sued the latter for slander,
and which has been in our county
court two years, was finally decided
at Barton Landing a week ago last
Saturday, by referees. It appears
that Leland had accused Tripp of theft
when Tripp sued for slander, daina
ges laid at $4000. After being run
through the legal mill the time above
stated, it was thought advisable to
have it left to three disinterested per
sons, who proceeded to inves-"a'e
the ease and to report that ''ie words
uttered by Leland wf- false, mali
cious and slumlords, and they gave
the plaintiff with which to repair
his woijj Jed spirit. We are told that
Mv. Tripp is one of the most reliable
men in Brownington, a member of the
church, and every way stands high in
the estimation of his neighbors.
Query. If a respectable man's char
acter ain't worth but a dollar of bad
ly depreciated currency, what ought a
roving brawler to have and be paid in
demoralized wheelbarrows ?
Christmas. Christmas was cele
brated at both our churches in the

deserves special mention entitled
"Feed my lambs, " which was well per
formed by eleven little girls who were
neatly dressed. After the exercises
of the Sabbath school, about three
hundred useful and ornamental pres

young, from a Christmas tree in the
orchestra. Rev. G. II. Biekford was
the recipient of $20 in greenbacks,

pleasant memories of the merry Christ

The people of Barton manifest a
commendable degree of zeal in pre
paring for such festive occasions. The
reflex influences are full of profit to
the social aud moral natures of all
participants.
A Surprise. Miss Adnah Jenness
of this village, had an agreeable sur
prise and present on Christmas eve.
Her father had a $4.10 pino set up
in the parlor, and all in running or
der while she was away at the church
looking for sauta elaus. She had not
the smallest intimation of the pleasure
in store tor her. Sueh presents in
such a way are worth something. We

Mr. Robinson's Readings. Mr. C
1). Robinson gave his second reading
in this village, last Friday night, to a
splendid house, in fact it was such as
to disappoint every oue present, for
wc arc not accustomed to give such
audiences here in Bartou. He read
even better than on the first evening,
besides his selections were better.
It is worth the price of admission to
hear him in any one of them, and
doubly ' so in " Iliawatha," " Shamus
O'Brien," and " More Hullabaloo."
Iliawatha was read in splendid style,
and it is a grand production of geuius.
The people of Bartou Landing and
vicinity met at the church on Christ
mas eve., and filled the house to over
flowing, when after listening to good
music &c., a huge Christmas tree load
ed with presents was the center of
attraction. The many presents were
noon disposed of among both old and
young, and all seemed well pleased
aud satisfied.
Hand Sawed. Antoine Valle got J
his hand cut on a circular saw in the
chair factory, in this village, on Sat

seriously.
Lectures. A course of free lec
tures are now being given at the
church, Barton Landing, by J. V.
Xichol3, on the subject of phrenology.
The two first lectures came off Satur
day and Friday evenings, and were
highlv entertaining and instructive,
and well attended, the house being
full. Mr. Nichols is a veteran in the
science of phrenology and handles
the subject with ease and interest.
There are to be five more lectures th'13
week.

COVENTRY.
Christmas. The celebration of
Christmas eve at Coventry was a very
successful affair, and much credit is
due to the energetic and efficient com
mittees who had the management of it.
It was a union movement and the
spirit of union governed the whole
proceedings. Persons from all parts
of the town, and of all shades and va
rieties of opinion came together upon
terms of "peace and good will." The
congregational church was crowded
full. Dr. I). W. Blanchard officiated
as master of ceremonies. Music wa
furnished by a quartette, consisting
o f Mrs. Porturi B. Hancock, Miss
Jennie Wahvorth.aud Messrs. F. How
land and Earl Baldwin, with instru.
mental accompaniment by Miss M. E.
White, and songs were sung by two
choirs of juvenile singers. Recita
tions were spoken by Miss Ida
Burbank and master II. Blanchard
and W. II. White. The several orig
inal charades were acted,amomr which
were "Carpet-baggers" and "Grecian
bend," to the great amusement of the
snectators. Tableaux of ''Faith. Hone

Mrs. Parker was a daughter of the
first settler, and came into the town
in 1800. These circumstances made
the occasion a matter of much local
interest. All the children but one,
who lives in Chicago, were present,
some of them having come a long dis
tance, and eiy-ht of the nine srrand-
i children were also present, besides
many invited guests. The Judge, not
withstanding his seventy-eight years,
looked as hale, and fresh as if he were
twenty years younger ; nor was his
wife any less youthful in appearance.
When the company had all assembled,
prayer was offered by Rev. A. R. Gray,
after which Rev. Pliny II. White ex
pressed the congratulations of the as

responded, and the af ternoon and eve

rents was surrounded in concentric
circles by the hair of all their living
children.

for pain, it is a perfectly safe medicine even in
the most unskillful hands.
FOR SUMMER COMPLAINT,

without doubt been more successful in curing
the various Kinds of

than any other known remedy, or even the most
skillful "physician. In India, Africa and China,
where this dreadful disease is evermore or less
prevalent, the Pain Killer is considered by the

climates.
A SURE REMEDY. 52w4
I EBILITY.
U Every one at times feels the necessity of
something to tone up the system depressed by
inental or bodily exhauston. At such times let
every one, instead of taking alcoholic or medi
cal stimulants, which afford only a temporary
relief, reinvigorate his debilitated system by the
natural elements of the
PERUVIAN SYRUP,
or Protected Solution of the Protoxide of Iron,
which vitalizes and enriches the blood by sup
plying it with its Life Element, IRON.
Being free from Alcohol in any form, its ener
gizing effects are not followed by corresponding
reaction, but are permanent, infusing strength,
vigor and new life into all parts of the system,
aud building up an Iron Constitution.
Wm. C. STERLING, Esq., of Poughkeepsie,
N. Y., says:
"Since taking the Peruvian Syrup i feel better,
my strength is improved, my bowels are regular,
my appetite first-rate.
There is an old physician in this c.'r tolder
than I am,) who has been in the d'Ug business
for 40 years, who ha used the Syrup for three
months, and gives it as his decided opiuion that
it is the besi Alterative Tonic Medicine he ever

Peach am, Vt., Nov. 10th 186S.
This is to certify that I bought in 'Mav, 1868,
two barrels of Phosphate to use on my corn; one
was manufactured by W. L. Bradley of Boston,
and the other iy ruddock 6c Dean ot bt Johns
bury. My corn ground was manured and plowed
in wnh yard manure. I planted the hrst 4 rows
with Bradley's Phosphate, the next 4 rows with I
raddi ck & Dean s, and so on until i used the two
barrel-, up. I put one table spoonful in a hill,
and piit one hoe fulf of dirt on each hill Itefore I
dropp;1 I my corn. 1 done this on purpose to
test the oualitv of the two kinds of Phosidinie.
The result with mc is, mat where I used Brad-
lev's Phosphate the worms did not eat any ot the
stalks mu, while they eat out a good many etalks
and S'iae whole hills where I used Paddock &
Dean's ;;; 1 w hat remained of Paddock & Dean's
was not two-t birds as good, either in fodder or
corn as it was where I used the Bradley Phos
phate, the trial of the two kinds Phosphate has
satisfied me that Bradley's Phosphate is cheaper
at 3 1-2 cents per lb. than the Paddock & Dean
would be at a gift ; therefore I shall never lose
any more time in using the Paddock & Dean
phosphate, and shall always use Bradley's on all
the corn and turnips that I plant, for it always
has proved of great value to my crops whenever
I have ued it.

W. L. BRADLEY,
Dear Sir : I used two barrels of your Phos
phate and half a barrel of the Paddock brand as
an experiment, side by side, on potatoes, corn
and turnips, last spring, and find vours all it is
claimed to be, while the other does not becin to
answer my expectations. I have used yours
severaiyears with good success.
Yours truly.

ITS PURITY AND EXCELLENCE.
It is a well known fact that many articles used
in various families are more or less adulterated,
but it is Dot so generally known that confection
ery, au article used in every family, is adulterat
ed to a large extent. Formerly flour and starch
were used, but latterly au ingredient called "Ter
ra Alma, or White Earth," is used.
Now, as holidays are near, when a large am
ount of cenfectionery will be consumed, it is im
portant to every person foa them to procure that
which is pure and free from any deleterious
matter.
It is better, far better, for parents to refuse all
confectionery for their children than to give them
that which is so adulterated.
Purchasers desirous of a pure article, I will
guarantee every particle of Confectionery manu
factured by me to be as pure as the very best
Stuart's crushed sugar.
The wholesale tradt will find a large assort
