Thkhk was one plaln and qulet mourner ln tho company of tho neareat and dearest at the great funeral in Cleveland yepterday whone deep tor row must have been strangely inlogled wlth prlde. Thomaa Garfleld, the older brother ot Jame, now a ttlmple cltlzcn of Grand liaplds, Mlchlgan, as be wltnotsed the rnarvetous demontratlonu of re- spect and affectlon for the late presldent, muat have recjilled wlth aatlsfactlon tbe dayg of hln boybood, hia early and long-contlnued atrugglea to aupport hin mutber and younger brother and eUters, and partlcularly the not easy sacrlflce of hls own detdre for educatloa and advanceinent, that hU more glfted brother mlght have the op portunttlea whlch he, too, craved. The flrnt omall wagen whlch Tboraas earned as a boy of ten or a dozen years, itin related, he carried borne and threw ln hls mother' lap, saying, " Now Jamea can have a palr of ohoett." Truly the greateet herolsms of thla llfe are oftentlmei) the slmplest. A kancifdi story has been told of the kllllng of General Garfieid's horse at Chlckamauga, The true story an related by General Garfleld ts thus told by the Cinclonatl Commercial: " Ile sald be was wrltlng, slttlng on the ground wbere thero wan a depreartlon such that the fllght ot shot was over head, IIIs horse was held by an orderly, when a round cannon ball carae clone to the group and striking another horne full ln the broast killed hlm lnstantly, General Girfleld sald he looked np, hearlng the thud, and saw tlmtltl' Iiorn w rrantic wlth frlgbt. Ile had peen the terrible death of the other horse and had abundant senae to be scared. Garfleld got up and stepped beslde hls h-roa speaklng to hlm ktndly and patttng hlm with hls hand. soothlng and reaasuring the anlmal, whlch at once bocam e calm and manlfested lil-t gratltude. The horae, Garfleld Bti'i, as much as sald to hlm, 'Old fel low, thls doeen't ImW well to me, but I hive con- fldence ln you that It Is all right The horse was not hurt." A TOLTiusa story, told by I)r. Totter ln Grace church, New Vork, illuatrates the popular feellng ln an effective way: "Apoor woman stopped on the btreet on Saturday and inqulred the prlce of a plcture of Garfleld. 'Ten centV was tbe answer. 'Couldn't jou let tne have one for five? she oaked, ' Ye,i sald the vender, She took lt and klnHed It again and agaln wlth the tears strearalng down her face. 4 Ve was a poor boy yourxelf once,' she sald, 'and yo knewhow to feel fur the poor. Ilut there was no clas feel lng even of thls kind In tho universal and spon- taneom emotton.

The mlnute guns of the French vesHels of war lylng In Now York harbor were an echo ot a eentlment nmong the people and the governraents of Kurope such m no event beyond thelr natlonal borders had ever before nroused, Io all the great capltals and perhaps in all the great cltles of Lurope the day was uttlngly hon- ored. Genriul Swaim says of the arrlval ot the Garfleld famlly at Mentor: "We accorapanled Mrs. Garfleld, Grand ma Garfleld and tbe chil dren to the old homette.Ld at Mentor on Tuenday, When we came ln slght ot the old famlliar spot, Mrs. Garfleld was qulte overcome for a moment. but soon recovered her compoiure and entered the desolate borne. General Garfletd's etudy re- malns jut as be left It, and one of the sorrowlng wldow's first steps was to go lato the room where she bad spent many bappy hours.

Alfred Joslyn of Waitsfield steadily increases hls show of Jerseva, fawn color and white, wlth a good dalry record. Tbts year we count elgbt aulinaN In hls cattle tens. Kdwln IIoue of Waitsfield, known throughout the state for hls splendid herdof Devons, had seven cows of regl-ttered stock; and C. Spaulding of More town aud W. C, Kelsfy of Fayston also bad thoroughbreds of thls breed. Durhatns are well represented by the herd of John A. Granfield of Waitsfield, who shows six large cows and five other head of full-blood John Ferrla ot Waitsfield show sa large Durham bull three years old, remarkably well-built And bandsome, and whlch weighs about two thousand puunds; and L.vman Hsk of Waitsfield has on the ground a )alr of grade Darbam tralnrd steera whlch welgh twenty-four hundred and ten pounds. L. K. Joaljn has two beau'ltul thorough bred Dutch cows, wlth two calves; whlle ln giade Dutch we notlce a large bull one year old owned by Patrlck Smith of Fayston, and A flne bull calf owned by E. L. Marble ot Fayston, whlch l-t as well tralned as the premlum tralned steers. One of the most Interestlng and amuslng feat- ures of the day was the trainlng ot steers by tbe boya Winnle Bowman, Eddle Prentloe, Bennle Marble, llugh Carpenter and Myron Ilanks, and It should be mentioned ln connectlon wlth thls class that there have been five or six palrs of Bteer calves sold out of tbotownof Waitsfield ihH season for 350 per palr, In tbe grand parade of cattle there were nlocteen jkairs of all colors, from calvea up to tbe roAmmoth oxen, splendid fellows and well -matched.

FLOltAL AND ACUICULTL'HAL I1ALU As we enter here we can but echo the general expresslon of surprlse and pleasureat thebmuty, variety, fullness and rarlty of tbe wbole dNplay, Wbero shall we begin to record, and what thall wesay? In inechanlc arts we flnd speclmens of heavy aud calf boota, ladles thoes, and a full assortmeot of goods In thatllue by G. D. Moultou of Moretown; cooper work by G, W, Olmstead of Waitsfield; J. B Fasnett of Moretown has Ilowe's scales on exhlbltlon aperfect artlcle, so tieful tbat every farmer should have them. We find also full entrles of butter, cheese, sugar, honey and bread, and a reference to tbe premlum llst wlll show who enters tbe good, better and best. In agrlcultural Iraplements wefind a few artlcles of merit, with no competitlon bowever, but ln graln, frult and vegetables we find a rare show of every variety. I W. Bisbce of More town has three eutries of turnlps three of table squabcs and two of beets; J, D. Marble of Fays ton shows the unusual slght of eleven good-slxed ttble squashes all on the same vlne, twelve large pumpklns both yellow and dark green, three varletles of potatoes, and a peck ot nlce seedling pples whlch he calls the " General Grant'," Ueu- ben llites ot Waitsfield enters table beeU, onlons, tomatoes, a variety of potatoea of twelve dlffer ent names, and tbe only plumsln the hall; A. E. Lovej iy ot Moretown exhlblts beans, beets, three klndsot toraatoes, pumpklns, rquashes, melons, cltrons and cabbage; J. B. Ilills of Middlesex exhtblts seed-corn, pop-corn, potatoes, eleven klndsof crab apples, fifteen varietles ot apples, ten pecks ot beans And " no two beans Alike." But we must not lake space to mentlon each lndl vidual. There was a fine sbow of seed-corn, a large show ot very large pumpklns, and tbe dls- play of apples of all klnds was larger and better than ever before, both In pecks and specimens 0. W. Pavls & Co. of Waterbury Center had very nlce specimens frura their uursery; Wllllam and C. U. Sawjerof Moretown had fifteen speci mens and also specimens of apples: Irotn the crops of 1831 And 1880 In the same box; J. B. Hllla had fifteen specimens; G, O Boyce ot Fayston had ten varletles ot sweet apples and ten of sour, and John A. Granfield of Waitsfield had twelve varie tles that could not be beaten for looks, and we presnine not for taste. In domestlc mantifactures we especlally notlce tbat flannel, frocklng, home-made llnen and home-spun yarn are not among the lost arts, whlle In rugs and rag-carpetlug thn entrles are numerous and tery flne. Among tbe bedquilta we can hardly say whlch waa prettlest or best when all Are so good, but wlll especlally mentlon three very nlce ones, by Mrs. Noah Uoblnson of Waterbury Center; and two nlcely done plece work pufTs, by little mlsses of ten and seven yeara old, F.llen G, and Josle C.

Fussett bad an elcgant llower-stand with a profuslon of spleudid plants ln full llower and of fine follage, whlch be frankly confessed to us belonged partly to bis wlfe and paitly to hls good neighbors. He also had two flue organs ln the hall, whlch wlth many good volces gave ptenty of muslc. Mlss Mary Garobllng of Atu- fleld show ed two tnosa landscapes a summer aud winter acene, which were very much adnilred; Mrs. N G.

ThU f.ilrwas held At Morrisville, Tuesday and Wednesdny, September 27th and 28'.b. The first day, Tnehday, opened wlth rather threatenlng weather, whlch doubtleHS prevented a good many from attendlng, though the day pruved qulte pleasant, wlthbutonesprinklln. Theopenlugof the exerclses accordlng to the programme was to take place at nlne A. m.. but the non-arrlval of tho band and other circumstances delayed that untll nearly eleven. Up to that tlme the sto k h ad been comlng In tn large numbers and a large nutnber ot people had arrived, The committees for arranglog artlcles ln the floral hall, the stock, pouttry, farmlng tools, etc , were very buy. The arrlval of artlcles for exhlbltlon commenced aa early as seven o'clock nnd continued untll past noon. Tbe cries of "pure clder," " detormed boy," the entertalning song-t by the darkey wlth the banj, were all heard atan uniHualty early hottr. At eleven A. m the format opeulng of the fair, whlch should have taken place at nlne, was observed, The band employed by the fair-ground company arrived at ten, belng tbe Waterbury cornet band of fifteen plcces. The band, seated ln ahay rack, was drawn round the track by the long strlng of oxen, The oxen woro divided Into two strings of ten palrs each, owned In Morris town and llydepark. Ia awnrdlug the premlums for the stringi, tbe committee dlvlded the money between the two towns, the cattle belng so nearly equal. The processlon was preceded by the ofH cers ot the company In ctrrlages. The several commltteet were then loatructed to report at the secretary's ofilce, to recelve intructlons. The tlme between half-ptst eleven and two was taken up by general arrangement of all artlcles or stock for exhibitlon, and things had begun toassume the usual appearance atsuch falrs.

Four horses were entered for this race, owned by Utton of Morrisville, Melvin ot Cam bridge, Clnrke of Morrisville, and Strong of llyde park. The horses belng green, lt was styled a ' running race" by a good many. Five heats were trotted and tbe race was wcn by "llyde park Mald," owned by C. M. Strong of llyde park, Tbo race took the remalnderof the after noon, and at tho close people begin to disperse. Tlie crowd for the day had not ben ery large, but as large as ls usual the first day here. Very good order had been kept and but little drunken ness was seen. The boardlng-hiuse ruu by Uan dall, ot the American lIoue, llydepark, was well patronlzcd, and people eatlng there were well treated. The show In the floral b ill was about as usual. A. N. Balley of St. Johnsbury had on exhibitlon a Mason & Ilarnlin organ and un lNtey organ, whlch were most excellent ln tone and flnish.
