AT THE TOP.
It is laudable ambition to reach the top of the ladder of success. But many a man woo reacnes we topmost rung finds his position va torment instead of a triumph. Me has sacrificed his health to success. A man can sue ceed and be strong if he heeds Nature's warn ings. When there is indigestion, loss of appetite, ringing a the ears, dizziness, pots before the eyes or palpita tion of the heart : any or all of these symp totns point to weakness and loss of nutrition.

It says: uAt last there is a pros pect of some kind of a new depot at Bel lows Falls. The townspeople want a new location, and the railroads want per mission to use the old site ana the old walls. The townspeople, if they have reason on their side, better not accept any compromise. The rnew depot, once built, will have to stay where it is put for a long, long time." A vigorous war is being made in cer tain quarters against pictorial supple ments to Sunday newspapers, aiming to furnish entertainment for the young. It is argued that these supplements are do ing an immense amount of wrong in con tinually suggesting to the youthful mind that it is a shrewd and laudable thing to play tricks on his elders and practice all kinds of deviltry. Rudeness, coarseness, bad manners, dishonesty and silliness are a few of the things taught by these gaudy attempts at entertainment. The great metropolitan Sunday papers ought to be able to provide their young readers with more wholesome and serviceable reading. The Xorthfleld News thinks that the United States government ought to pay for what advertising it wants and not send newspaper publishers requests for gratuitous booming. This sounds like business and the motion ought to pre vail but will not until the legislature has been educated a little more. But why not go a little further. Why should the general government pay for its advertis ing. Publishers are continually receiv ing requests to publish certain matters providing it can be done without cost to this or that department. The News continues: "This unwarranted burden on the publishers of the state, who prob ably receive less compensation for their exacting work and capital invested than almost any other class of business or professional men, will continue .to in crease until they take the matter up either as an association or individuals and put a stop to it. If any apology is needed to the reader for talking shop in t'ie editorial columns it may be said that the matter is presented in the interests of better newspapers which must be the inevitable result of fair compensation for state advertising.11 Tough for Weary Willies. Our neighbor up the line, The Ver mont Union Signal, the state organ of organized labor, indulges in a Utopian dream. It thinks the time is coming when every man can secure work who desires it or who is compelled to work by neces sity. It takes a good deal of necessity to compel some men to work. Farmers all over Vermont, and the same is probably true of other states, are crying long and loud for help, but there are none to assists notwithtanding thousands of shiftless specimens are tramping about the coun try and asking for charity on the ground that they cannot secure work. If told where work can be secured they make tracks in the opposite direction. If organized labor could force these fellows to work as opportunity presents it would do society a lasting favor, but cause weeping and gnashing among the weary brethren. The Signal says: The union labor movement is respoiv sible for the prosperity of the country, There is not a man in the country who can logically contradict it. The lessen ing of the hours for a clay's work lias taken the formerly idle men from the ranks of the unemployed. It has divided the work to be done among all those who have no means of subsistence accu mulated, and that has given better wages than formerly and the better wages hare increased consumption and given a great er volume to commerce. The fewer hours for a day's work for each person minimizes the desire of the wage earners toe ngage in commercial or manufactur ing lines for themselves. This leaves a iield more prolific of good results for those engaged in traffic and thus the bet ter conditions prevail. The tfme will come when the industrial conditions will be so simplified as to' leave-no main with out work when he desires to wrk .or when necessity compete. Bishop Spaulditvg on Labor. . Bisbep Spamiding, one of the commis sion to investigate the anthracite coal strike has saifJ some sensible things re garding; labor smd labor unions. F'r ex ample: "The root ot our industrial titouble is the fierce competitive system under which we live, and which results from over capitalization and over-production. Soroe-of ourgreatest industries are capitalized at four or five times-their real value, ami every possible device is resorted to in order to pay dividends on watered; stock. The outcome of tiis will be, sooner or later, disaster. "We need not so nvneh new measures, but a new heart. In mr labor difficul ties the moralization f both employers and employes is an indispensabie condi tion in the bringing about ofi a better state of things. "And since the employers are fewer in number and presumably more intelligent than are the laborers, the chief effort should be to give them new minds and new hearts, that they may understand that they are trustees not less of public interests than of private interests and that the rights of workers, to say the least, areas sacred as are the rights of owners. "Just as the union is recognized, just to that extent it is foiced into responsi bilities which it could not shirk if it would. The time may come when it will be advisable to incorpprate unions, but it is not yet here; it is enough that union labor is recognizing that the union which repudiates its contracts literally kills itself. "Today the trades union needs to be counseled to a more conservative policy with reference to men and things. It needs to modify its attitude toward the non-union man; to temper its aversions to new inventions; to curb its disposition to limit output, to discourage the most efficient workers, and to resort to the sympathetic strike and the criminal boy cott. "American laborers are not socialists, much less are they anarchists; they are for the most part religious, law-abiding men, and unionism as it exists today in the United States is a beneficent and con servative force, and where the unions are strongest their influence is most helpful. "The church should do what it iS pos sible for it to do to improve the civil and economic condition of the people, but it will work more effectively by eliminat ing and purifying its own members, by inspiring them with an eager desire to be of help; to labor disinterestedly to lessen the sin and sorrow and suffering of men." s Letter to L T.

The following story from the lirattle boro riumnix of My 8 vvi11 De of Inter est to peo,e in this place. Indorsing cashiers' drafts and receiv ing money (in them mndu trouble last Friday fr j. s. Sidelinger of St. Joliiishtiry, who has beei in Brattleboro several weeks Woikiiig up the member ship of the Modern Woodmen of Amer ica. On Frjtiay, April 24, Mrs. A. J. Tewksbury of' Brattleboro, who is an agent and camasser for shoes, was in possession (,f two drafts, one for $110.25 and one fur $08. One was issued by the Hlack Kiver bank of Proctorsville on the National Kxchange bank of Boston and the other was issued by the Orange Na tional bank on the State National bank of Boston. Desiring to get the drafts cashed Mrs. Tewksbury indorsed her name on the baik of each draft, put them in her bank book and started with them for the Ver mont National hank. She handed her bank bonk to Teller C. II. Thompson, who asked what sho wanted done with it. She said she wanted the drafts cashed and was told that there were no drafts in the book. Thinking that she might have lost them or left them at home Mrs. Tewksbury re' raced her steps home ward, but could n' t find the drafts Then she sent word to Boston to have payment on tue drafts stopped. A few days later Mrs. Tewksbury re ceived notice from Bosto 1 that one of the drafts had arrived, that it had been cashed in St. .lohnsbnry and had been indorsed by C. K. Or en and then by K. S. Sidelinger. On last Thursday night Mrs. Tewksbury drove to .Newfane alter StahTs Attorney Schwenk, who was a: tending county court. Mr. Schwenk rt turned with her to Brattleboro; issued a warrant for Sidelinger's arrest and gave it to Chief-of-Police Hall, who arrested Sidelinger at his room in the American House ni t far from midnight. Sidelinger remained in custody of an officer until morning when, he was taken to State's Attorney Schwenk's office. He said that he was at the brewery one even ing, that a man there who was-a stranger to Imn wanted to play poker- with nun, t&at he invited the man to-his room in the American House and that) when they usished playing the man was- intlebted to him. ' lie said the man had n& money, but that he drew from his pocket a draft indorsed by Mrs. A. J. Tewksbwry and C. K. Green. SidelSmger said he cashed the draft, deducting the amount slue him on the game. lie said that afterwards he started for St. Jonnsbury on Business and met the man on the train, that the man asked him te'Cash anothes draft which was indorsed the same as the first one and that he complied with the request, that he cashed one at St. Johns bury and one in St. Albans. He said he was innocent of any intentional wrong doing and supposed the drafts came into Green's possession in a rightful w'ay. He said the O. II. Green who has been assisting him in his-work in Brattleboro was not the man who indorsed the drafts. Sidelidger furnished bail for the amount of the drafts, E. M. Angrier ai d II. B. Hans becoming surety. A hearing in the case was held Monday before Jus tice F D. E. Stowe. At a hearing Monday Mr. Sidelinger denied that he was guilty of any inten tional wrong, but was convinced that he was liable for the asnount of the- drafts, lie refunded a portion of the money and the hearing was continued until May 27 to enable him to pay the remainder. Mr. Sidelinger organized ai branch of Modern Woodmen in Bellows Falls, re maining here several weeks. Mrs. A. J. Tewksbury is agent for the Furber shoe and conies to Bellows rails often. George A. Clark. The following extract from a notice of the funeral of George A. Clark at IIol yoke, Mass., is taken from the Spring field Republican of Wednesday, May 6. Mr. Clark was a former resident of Bel lows Falls, a son of A. S. Clark of the firm of Clark & Chapman, owners of the the machine shop here owned later by Osgood & Barker. The funeral of George A. Clark, for nearly 27 years treasurer of the Newton Paper company, and for 19 years deacon in the Second Congregational church, was held yesterday afternoon at the house, 245 Beech street, Holyoke. The funeral was largely attended, many of noiyoKe s best-known business men and manufacturers being present and the floral tributes being numerous and costly. A mixed quartet sang several selections ana the services were con ducted jointly by Rev. J. H. Lock- wood of Westiield and Rev. Dr. E. A. Reed of Holyoke. Dr. Reed's remarks were delivered with deep feeling. George A. Clark was born in Hub- bardston, October 11, 1847. His family removed from there to Bellows Falls when he was two years old. where he attended the public schools, and later tooK a course of study at Kimball Union academy at Meriden, N. II. He went to Holyoke when 18 years of age, and entered the Franklin paper mill to learn the business, under the advice of James U. Newton, and after learning it was for a short time superintendent. The New ton paper company was organized in ifeib, and he was connected with it from the start, beine secretary for a short time, and then being appointed treasurer, a position which he had held ever since. He also had for a while the management 01 the Clark Slachine company of Tur ner's Falls, and was highly successful in nis Dusmess administration. 111s con nection with the Home and the People's savings banks has already been told, as well as his church relations. He was married to Miss Ellen Dibble of West field in 1884, by whom he had five chil dren, John G., Ruth, Rachel, Marion and George A. Mrs. Clark died in 1S91, and for his second wife he married, in 1893, Miss Hora Wilson, a kindergarten teach er, then in Holyoke. Three children resulted from this second union, Robert W., Paul W. and Fred "Hall, all living. Two sisters, Mrs. William Mann of Bos ton and Elizabeth of Northampton, and one brother. Dr. J. S. Clark of Westheld, are also left. The burial was in the For- estdale cemetery.

Henry Powers for a subject and treats it 111 a humorous and entertaining sort of way. According to 1 Her, the ex-congressman has "dosed" himself almost since he peeped over the sides of the cradle. Iller says: "The early part of his career in the legal profession was in keeping with the usual hard strule of theyourg lawyer, and it became pain fully evident to him that he would have to spring something on litigants in order to secure a clientele, lie accordingly took three bottles of 'Palne's celery com pound,' and repeated the 'oft-told tale How I was cured.1 " Iller says that this testimonial elected him prosecuting attorney, state repre sentative, state senator and judge of the supreme court. The judge's next "dose" of patent medicine was when he was cured by Greene's Nervura. Iller says that the Nervura tea imor.ial landed the judge in the United States congress. , Soon after he became acquainted with the Washington bunch lie felt the need of something new in the medicine line and he wrote a glowing account of what i Pi iiim nan none tor liim. This testimonial, according to Iller, gave tbe congressman the leadership of the Peruna party, which was very pow erful before he arrived at the national capital. Iller continues: "Under his (Powers) leadership the Peruna party made won derful strides forward but, strange a. omaly, the more the congressmen professed being cured, the more feeble they grew, and stimulated- by the exam ple of Mr. Powers, there are now over 50 'active1 members in the party taking the cure." "Powers tried to make Peruna the national tonic," asserts Iller.. The presi eleiit was opposed to this movement, as He Had accepted Moxie Nerve Food for a toii and believed his judgment was better than that tf the man from Ver mont. Iller concludes- his autobiography of the ex-judge and ex-congressman by saying: "Powers1 term expired in 1901, and his constituents failed to return him to congress. They claimed that a man niav have iains all the time, that he may get rid of all the pains some of the time, but they doubted Powers when he got cured 01 an ins pains an the time." If Uler is correct the Powers patent mediciue testimonials were his undoing as a national politician. 11 is retirement from congress, how ever, is attributed to another cause by the majority of Vermonters. Essex Record. Made Drunken Assault. Frank A. Larrow, a salesman for a wholesale liquor house and formerly proprietor of a hotel in Guilford, was before the district court in Greenfield. Mass., Saturday afternoon on the- charge of assaulting his wife, Angelina Larrow. at Guilford Friday night and attempting 10-niiuruer uer. Larrow was asres-ted in Greenfield Sat urday morning by Patrolman Wilcox on a complaint telephoned to liim from Brattleboro b.y Chief of Police Hal!,. The only question, which the local court could pass .upon was whether Larrow should be held for extradition papers from Governor McCullough of Vermont Larrow s counsel moved to. quash the complaint issued by the local court on the ground that it did not set forth that there was an indictment or complaint against Larrow: issued in. another state. This was overruled by Judge Lyman and bail fixed at 2000. In default, Larrow went to jail. Larrow finally consented to go to Brattleboro without requisition papers and did so. The Vermont authorities gave this ver sion of the alleged assault for which Lar row is wanted: Larrow and his, wife separated about May 1 and the wife is an applicant for a limited divorce. She asked for alimoruy of 15 a week. Be cause of alleged threats made by Lar row, Judge Tyler of Brattleboro had is sued an order restraining Larrow from interfering with the personal liberty of the wife and an arrangement by counsel had been made whereby alimony of $35 a month was to be given her. Larrow wanted a full divorce and, after drinking, drove out to Algiers Fri day night and, according to the officers, brutally assaulted his wife because she would not consent to a full divorce. Neighbors took a hand, the woman es caped and Larrow secured an axe and threatened to make things lively for those who had taken the part of his wif , Taking his eight-year-old son Larrow then drove to Greenfield and his arrest followed. Papers were issued in Brattleboro by State's Attorney Schwenk, charging as sault with intent to kill. The boy was taken back to his mother at Brattleboro during the day. A Palatial Saloon. For harmony of color, light and fur nishing with the general arrangements the business place of John II. Dugan of Center street in Rutland will probably surpass the attempt of any Vermont liquor dealer. In conformity to the statutes the store is so arranged as to offer a full view of the interior from the street and attracts the attention of every passing pedestrian. To the right of the entrance are combination show cases, and on either side are swell front wall cabinets. Ten oil paintings arrest the eye in pleasing effect with steel panels representing spring and autumn. The statues of Bachus and Bachanti, thegod and goddess of wine, and the figure of a Turkish maiden are resplendent with small incandescent lamps. Vases of roses and carnations alternate with the paintings, two of the receptacles for the flowers being imported work of old pot ters, while here and there are rare pieces of bric-a-brac. The cases used for the display of goods are of oak and black ash and were made to order for Mr. Du gan by the Brunswick Balke company of Aewiork. The ceiling is of steel ana the floor tiled with inlaid linoleum, and the lighting is -by clusters of electric lamps covered by jackets of cut glass. Mr. Dugan was remembered by several friends in and out of the city on the oc casion of his opening recently by fine floral pieces. Vermont Union Signal.
