The St. Johnsbury Republican remarks :
An exchange says : Windham county has a
candidate for state superintendent of cen
sus. It would be something new if old
Windham didn't have just the man for the
place, for every office to be filled. In this
instance however, a first-class man is sug
gested. It is Eugene S. Kingsley of Ath
ens." The Northfield News says: "Wind
ham county has a candidate for State sup
erintendent ot census in the person of
Eugene S. Kingflev of Athens. The fact
that the State superintendent of the Census
for 1880 and 1890 both hailed from that
county leads to the pertinent enquiry as to
whether no other part of the s'ate has a
person qualified for the position. It can
not be denied, however, that the work was
well done in this state in the last two cen
sus years."
Political Speculation.
Several Vermont newspapers continue to
see political visions and consume valuable
spae in rehearsing them to their readers
The Randolph Herald and News is one of
these papers. Like the Northfield News
and a few other papers in that section of
the state, it was an enthusiastic Grout
paper until, for geographical reasons, it
became policy to change political faith.
The Herald admits that Hon. W. W
stickney ol Ludlow must be the next gov
ernor, but as regards the other officers
there is to be a warm time ahead. A re
ce nt editorial reads like a chapter from the
Prophets. Here for example is a pretty
sentence: "Anxious candidates are watch
ing by the cradles of incipient boomlets,
nursing them through the trying period ot
early infancy, feartul lest they fall victims
of neglect. The woods are literally full of
aspirants to the various places that bid fair
to be cast into the arena and the several
contests are certain to be close and ex
citing." .
Speaking of the congressional outlook
the writer says : "Then when we turn to
the seat in congaess which Grout will
vacate when he steps into the senatorial
arena, whether he succeeds there or fails,
we find an almost endless array of candi
dates. Plumley of Northfield, Stickney of
Bethel, cousin of W. W. Johnson of
Woodstock, Read of Bellows Falls, Has
kins, Martin and perhaps Estey of Brattle
boro are already in the field. Every
county on the east aide, save Essex nd
Orange, has anywhere from one to four
candidates for the two seats in congress
that are to be filled.
"But when we get down to Windham
county we find the most embarrassing
situation of all. With three or four candi
dates for Grout's seat, all dead in earnest,
the spectacle is none tbe more pleasing be
cause of its familiar features. Windham
has very seldom shown a capacity for get
ting together for any one of her favorite
sons. Windham countv politics is harder
for the outsider to comprehend than French
politics and after about the same pattern
a cere are plenty ol grudges and old sores
and the great difficulty seems to be that
tne politicians have uncomfortably good
memories. About a 1 that can be antici
pated from Windham is that the several
candidates will succeed in killing each

The Souvenir.
With this issue we send .out as a supple
ment tbe long delayed souvenir devoted to
tbe town of Rockinghsm. - Tbere has
been a great deal of work put into its prep
aration, but like all things mortal it is not
perfect. For example careful proof read'
lag nas been done, but no doubt some er
rors will be discovered, such as tbe date on
tbe second page, seen too late for correc
tion, wbicb should probably read 1752 in
stead of 1852, although the proof reader
followed copy. Then too some of the cats
are not as distinct as they might be. As a
partial explanation of this we wish to state
that a half tone cut can never be superior
to the photograph from which it is made
If the photograph is faded and indistinct,
tbe cut will not be perfect. A few ot the
photographs furnished for Cuts were very
poor ; one or two were the work of ama
teurs, and in one instance a letterhead was
furnished and the wondej jyhat even aver-

The Little Host.
Miss Delia Fox and one ot tbe best sup
porting companies on the road comes to
Bellows Falls opera bouse on Friday .April
14.
"The Little Host" is a departure from
the usual order in several respects, one, in
having a story which goes on with only
slight deviations lrom beginning to end ;
another innovation being a oborus strictly
feminine. Tbe plot of the piece tells of a
fay young student in New York whose
uritanical father visits his chambers sud
denly ; and to escape h:s censure, a little
actress playing boy's parts, and present in
male costume, tbe son's fiancee, assumes
the part ot host, only to find that the father
is not so much of a Puritan as be looks,
but is in mortal dread of discovery by bis
supposedly strait-laced son. Ihe mutual
unmasking ot father and son makes the tun
ol the piece, which grows tat and ranoos.
As tbe actress who plays the part of the
impromptu host. Miss Fox has a part full
01 tun and frivolity, with just a touch seri
ous enough to add piquancy to tbe whole.
She looks very fetching in ber masculine
clothes, a full dress outfit and a gay golf
suit, appearing at the last in gorgeous
feminine habiliments. She acts with spirit
and dash and is always warmly applauded.
As a production it is said to be quite
gorgeous. As affording an evening's en
tertainment, well, everybody who has seen
it, and the critics highly approve it. Miss
Fox herself never looked, sang er acted
more charmingly than she does in "The
Little Host."
