The Vest turkeys received in the Boston market Thanksgiving week, says the Boston Cultivator, were rais ed in Vermont. They were as well fattened as Vermont turkeys were last year as late as Christmas. More tur keys are now received in Boston mar ket from Vermont than from any other New England state. In some of the leading hotels in Boston where meals are served on the European plan Ver mont turkeys are honored with a spe cial place on the bill of fare and com mand a special price. Hooray for the Vermont turkey ! Mrs. Whitney, wife ot the secretary of the navy, denounces in unmeasured terms the absurd and silly slanders that have been industriously circulated of late concerning domestic infelicity at the White House. She thinks it time "that some one competent to speak" should publicly "denounce every one of the stories as utterly false and baseless." Mrs. Whitney says that the happy course of the domestic life of Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland "has never been interrupted by an unkind word, look or thought. I speak with the authority of one who knows." We believe that Mrs. Whitney is better authority in this instance than Mrs. Grundy. Vermont at the Inauguration. A special to the New York Tribune says that Vermont will bo more fully represented at the inauguration of Gen. Harrison than it has been for many years on such an occasion. The Ver mont contingent will number fully 100 persons, and will include Gov. Dilling ham and fetalf, the Chicago delegates and alternates,ex-Governors Smith and Ormsbee, the state officers, Chairman Page and the members of the republi can state committee, the officers of the republican state league and many rep resentative republicans, most of whom will bo accompanied by their wives. Their headquarters will be at the Maltby, a new hotel ou New Jersey avenue and B street, northwest, front ing south on Capital Park. Wants Groceries Included. A valued correspondent in another state "catches on" to Carroll S. Page's newspaper scheme and wants its scope enlarged so as to include magazines and groceries. Here is what he says about it : I wish to take advantage of your club rates for city papers. Please send me the Boston Journal for 1881). 1 wish the chairman of the Republican Committee of Vermont would arrange with magazine publishers for similar reductions ; and if he will extend his protecting wing to groceries, etc., I shall like it still better. The grocery plank in our corres pondent's platform is respectfully sub mitted to Mr. Page. The Springfield Republican. On Saturday last the Springfield Re publican announced that it had remov ed into its own new three-story brick block, and celebrated the event by is suing an 8-page illustrated supple ment giving the history of the paper from its foundation in 1844 by Samuel Bowles to the present time, a sketch of the men who have made it one of the leading independent papers of the country, together with letters from of fice graduates and present employes The Republican has more than held its own against its metropolitan contem poraries and is the most marked ex ample in the newspaper world of what energy mixed with brains, tinctured neither by partisanship nor self-praise, can produce. Long may it flourish. The Nicaragua Canal. There was some lively sparring in the House Saturday over the Senate bill to incorporate the Nicaragua canal. The democrats undertook to defeat it by adding amendments that would nullify the charter. The debate, how ever, showed that the bill is likely to pass upon its final vote. Commenting upon the debate the Springfield Re publican says: "No loosely worded incorporation act would, of coarse, be justified in a project of this magnitude, and the solid men of both parties should be relied upon to draft a char ter which shall lead to the building of a canal and not to the floating of an other speculating scheme. The men who are engaged in this enterprise have the confidence of the country, and ask only the sanction which a national charter will give without in volving the government financially." Boston Election. The election in Boston on Tuesday was a great victory for the lovers of good government, resulting in a com plete overturn of Mayor O'Brien and the democratic machine and the elec tion of Thomas N. Hart as mayor by over 1700 majority. This result was brought about by a combination of re publican and independent votes. The public school question was the leading issue of the campaign, the re publican school ticket probably being elected entire. This issue was brought before the people last summer by the removal from the public schools of a text book distasteful to the Roman Catholic clergy. Believing that in this action they saw an entering wedge by which Catholic supremacy in the con trol of the public school was to be ul timately obtained, the friends of the public schools fought out the question on this line. It is thought that nearly 18,000 women voted. NOTE AND COMMENT. The November Century is a very attractive number of this most popu lar of magazines.

Hie case of Francis A. Cush- man v Willis A. Somers went to the jury Friday and a verdict was returned for defendant, Ide & Stafford for plain tiff and Bates & May for defendant. The next case tried was that of 0. W. Tyler v Ira Humphrey, a suit to recover for a board bill. The jury went out immediately after dinner on Monday, fought it out until 4 o'clock Tuesday morning and brought in a verdict of $1 and costs for the defend ant. Cahoon &. Stafford for the plain tiff and Bates & May for defendant. The case of John O. Hale v Grand Trunk Railway was called the first thing Monday afternoon. It looked from the array of counsel as though a long, hard contest was in prospect, Bates & May and Ide & Stafford ap pearing for the plaintiff and Ossian Ray of Lancaster and Judge Thompson of Irasburg for the railroad. Mr. Bates stated the case. Mr. Hale was in Ber lin Falls, N. II., on the evening of Nov. 2, 1885. At about 6 o'clock he went to the depot to drop a letter into the mail car, and while searching for the car fell off a platform on to some rocks below, causing a six month's ill ness, and injuries from which he will probably never fully recover. No light or protection was provided by the com pany where the accident occurred, and suit was brought to recover damages to the amount of $5,000. Mr. Ray for the railroad company maintained that Mr. Hale was searching for the mail car at altogether the wrong point and that he had no business to be where the accident occurred. After some dis cussion it was finally decided to send the jury over to Berlin Falls to view the premises and while the necessary arrangements were being made the counsel got together and settled the case. Just how much was awarded Mr. Hale is not made public but it is generally understood to have been be tween $1000 and $1500. Concerning the legal aspects of the case we know nothing, but as regards the serious character of Mr. Hale's injuries there can be no question. The next case called was that of Salmon Stearns of Lyndouville v E. P Clifford, an action in trover. Stearns let Clifford have a fur overcoat and enough money in addition to make $100, accepting Clifford's note for that amount. Afterwards Clifford went in to insolvency. Stearns claims that Clifford knew he was insolvent when he made the note and seeks to recover. In the new entry docket there are 49 cases and 17 in chancery. BARNET. The Clement Auction Sale.

To Stop Betting. New York Sun. At the session of the legislature of Vermont a new law was adopted to prevent and punish betting on elec tions. The provisions of the law are very stringent, and the meaus to bo taken for its enforcement seem ou their face to be efficient. It is evideut from the debate on the law in the legislature that the extra ordinary growth of the bettiug mania in politics within recent years has been a subject of serious apprehension in Vermont. It was more widespread and upon a larger scale in the elections of this year than it ever was in those of auy previous time, as a reference to the newspapers of the past few months will show. Yet we fear that the bettiug law will take its place by the side of prohibition It won't work. Christmas Stock NOW OPEN. Come and see our LAMPS, all prices.
