BARRE'S LATEST SENSATION Conspiracy Suit Brought Against the Granite Dealers' Association. The long expected sensation at Bane among the New England Granite Deal ers' association came SaturQay in the shape of a suit brought by the Boutwell Polishing company for $10,000 damages agamsi memoers oi ine association. These members represent 19 different firms of the largest dealers in Barre granite. All of the real estate of the defendants has been attached by Sheriff Tutue. Tne lioutweli company is com posed of J. M. Boutwell, H. W. Kemp and T. W. Wood of Montpelier and J. W. Dillion of Barre. Until recently the company owned a large non-asso ciation polishing mill in South Barre. The company claims that by the acts of the defendants its business was great ly damaged and that the association combined and conspired against the company because the latter is not a member of the association. By the al leged conspiracy the company claims it was obliged to sell its mill at a re duced price. The Boutwell company is also manager of the Langdon quarries, which furnished the non-association firm with its stock at the time of the big strike. The. plaintiff just sold its mill to Marr & Gordon, one of the de fendant firms. The case is to be heard at the Septem ber term of the Washington County court, and it will attract great interest as a test case. The Granite Cutters' union is not In the suit.

' The platform adopted urges Democrats to be steadiasi in tneir allegiance and to be undismayed by the temporary de feats. It denounces Republican legisla tion, approves oi pne measures proposed by the Democratic party in Congress, and hoids.the Republicans responsible for the present depressed condition of the country. The platform approves of the appeal of the Federal election laws and counts the repeal of the Sher man silver law an achievement for which President Cleveland and the Democratic party are to be thanked It demands a currency that shall be of its face value in every part of the globe. and states its belief in gold and silver as a circulating medium, and asks that tney be made oi equal value.

"What were the particulars of the accident?" inquired the reporter. "Tne cable car was going at a high rate of speed," replied the little man who had rushed breathlessly into the city editor's room for the purpose of giving "The Daily Bread" an item of news. "Just as it turned the corner a man in a light open ,buggy tried to drive across the track. The grip car struck the buggy squarely, knocked the man out, aud he fell senseless on the pavement. A policeman arrested the gripman, and the injured man was carried into Van flunk's drugstore, right on the corner. Ever been in that drugstore?

From the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Upon my place at home is an apple tree, the fruit of which is sweet on one side and sour on the other," said C. E. Harrington, of Baltimore, at the Em ery. "It has been known for many years that these apples existed, but no one has ever been able to explain the phenomenon. The tree in mv yard is an old one, and I do not believe that it was ever grafted. I think that it is a peculiarly original kind of fruit. One of these apples is about the size of an ordinary 'limber twig,' one side being green and the other having a slight Seized with La Grippe. I feel it my duty to acquaint all persons suffering as I. suffered, with the. facta pf my recovery and induce them to. seek the same source of relief. In the winters of '91 and '92 I was seized with La Grippe which com pletely shat tered my health. A complication of diseases set in which made my life aburden. I had Liver and Kidney Trouble, Dyspepsia, Neuralgia, Nervousness, and Catarrh, for all of which I found wonder ful relief in your valuable medicine. I was so prostrated after the second attack of La Grippe that I thought recovery im possible. Two doctors gave me medicine which did not benefit me in the least, A friend advised me to try 1U SARSAPARILLA and I began to mend before the first bottle was gone. For a year and a half I was able to work only a few hours at a time and every effort caused me the greatest distress. Now I can work all day in all kinds of weather and feel well and rugged. I feel as if I were a new being and had a New Lease of Life, ell of which I owe to Dana's Sarsaparilla, and I urge others who are sick to take "The Kind That Cures." ' P Algernon A. Hall, So.
