The Toxas Siftiners of tho 21st. hasan anccdoto that is appliod to Bennington. Wt do notavouch for the story, but here itisastold: In Bennington, Vermont, a fow days ago, there lived-a prosperous farmor naraed Loan Potter. He was the sshool comraitteoman for his school dis trict. and ho would nover tolerato tho teachinc in his school of such a horesv as tho ono maintained by Columbus that tho earth is round. Mr, Potter reasoned in a comman sense way, and from obser- vation in tuo nelghborhood he concluded that tho earth is flat but tipped slightly to tho northwcst to lot tho water run off. Tho wags in tho villago storo would fre quontly arguo tho point with tho old man, but he always stuck to his bolief. One day a nowcomor who had heard of tho committeeman's poculiarity, ad dressed lnm in tho following macner. "iiow ao you do, Mr. Potter; 1 hear you think tho earth is flat. Is that so?" wall you may think as rou nlease." said tho common senso old man "I know you'ro d d flat." Mrs. Wm. Stockwell of Shaftsbury, was thrown outof a carriago, Tuesday. noar tho Court house in this villago, and narrowly cscaped instant dcath. Mr. Stockwell and wlfe camo into town just beforo dinner, stopped in front of Childs & Powers' insurance offlco, Mrs. Stock well held tho toam a spmtcd pair. A trace dropped down, tho span started and ran. Approaching South strcet, on ono sido, stood the village coach waiting for tho noon mail out, on tho other sido, in front of tho Putnam, stood another team, while in front of tho Court Houso was hitched Tom Halloran's carrler's cart. Had tho streot been clear Mrs. Stockwell. who is daughter of Maj. Collins, formerly of North Bonnington, would haro been all rigkt, but tha blcckado of both sides of tho streot was too much for evon this xcsllont horsewoman and in a second her span and tho mail cart. with tho car riago wero "all in a hoap." Those who looked on shuddercd at tho thought of tho woman in tho midst of that strug gling mass, but as good fortuno would have it sho had been thrown out and into tho mud boforo. Tho carriago body was wronched off tho runnlng'cear, tho mail cart was brokon, and, strango to say, Mrs. stockwell escaped witn oniy a bruisod lace. The Hartland correspondentof thoVer- montJournal has this to say: ThoDomo- cratio party, so far as it has bcon Clovo- lanizrd, is in a fair way of being swept out of oxistence.
