TALLAPOOSA AGAIN. A new enterprise has been started in Tallapoosa, Ga., called the Georgia Fruit Growers and Winery Association. G. M. Williams is president and C. A. Norton is treas urer, both former residents of St. Johiisbury. The company claim that $125 invested in this company will yield $1308. If any one wants to invest he can address the com pany for further particulars. The New York Herald thinks that "the scheme is just two lovely for any - thing." AMHERST COLLEGE NOTEt. William A. Raub, Academy '89 and Amherst '93, remains at college this year as assistant professor in physics. William J. Hoardman, Academy '91 and Amherst '95, who left col lege last January to enter the em ploy of the John B. Alden Co. ol New York and later of the Critic Company, has returned to college. Prof. J. M. Tyler, who has many friends in St. Johnsbury, will spend the coming springand summer at a German university. Prof. Emerson, who was so severely injured in a western railroad accident this sum mer, has been granted a year's leave of absence and will take a trip around the world. Williams defeated Amherst at foot ball on the 18th by a score ol 30 to 12. The game was played at Amherst. This was the last game in the cham pionship series. INSURANCE FOR RAllWAV EM PLOYEES. It is a little surprising that no American road has adopted the English system of insurance for em ployees. The Pennsylvania and the Baltimore and Ohio have excellent relief departments, under which the funds ot the men are administered by the companies, free of charge. A number of roads have built hospitals and employed surgeons tor the care ol those injured ; while all com panies spend money for.the relief of disabled employees in various ways. Yet it is all indefinite and somewhat of the nature ol charity ; it forms no part of the implied contract of em ployment. When the employers' liability act was passed in England, the British railways took alarm- needlessly, as it has turned out fhey instituted departments for insurance against accidents, death and old age. Membership was made compulsory and servants had to waive their rights under the act In return, the companies agreed to contribute to each fund an amount each year equal to the total contri butionof theemployees. These funds are managed by committees formed from railway officers and servants, und the scale of payments is figured out by actuaries according to the statistics of accidents in past years. 1 hesc accidents have now ac cumulated balances amounting to several millions of pounds sterling In the accident department, for ex ample, each trainman pays six cents per week. He is entitled to five hundred dollars in case of death by accident or permanent disability ; or weekly allowance of five dollars when "temporarily disabled. The of ficers and clerks receiving regular salaries contribute two and a half percent of their stipends to n super annuation fund. Upon retirement each receives as a pension a percent age of his salary, that percentage varying with length of service; after thirty years' service it amounts to half his salary. There is also pro vision for death. Another lund provides pensions for the wage earners. When it is remembered that railway servants of all classes in England' receive much less pay than our own men, these sums art very liberal and art- to be measured bv the small payments inquired. II a'mnn leaves the company's service in good faith he receives back his own contributions only. If he is dis charged for fraud or dishonesty he forfeits the whole, at the option of the company. In this simple plan of insurance may be found one of the reasons for the excellent discipline on the English railways. The com pany testifies to its interest in its employees by contributing to their insurance from its own earnings. In the United States, unfortunately, there has grown up a feeling of antagonism between the corpora tion and the employee. What can be done to bring these two great forces into better sympathy with each other? The plan of insurance against death, disability and old ma-. throiiL'h the helo of the com- pany, would do much to bring about a reconciliation, to say nothing of the rebel to the injured from the point of view of humanity. En gineering Magazine lor November. A SVPERSTITIOUS VILLAGE. An old woman in a village near Salzburg recently died. Her death gave great satislnctioii to the other villagers, for she was looked upon as witch, and feared accordingly. Alter the funeral, several of the chief inhabitants repaired to the Wirths- chafl to celebrate suitably the relief experienced at getting this dangcr onr person safely under ground; but while they were sitting drinking pleasantly, in came a messenger to sav that the cow ol one ol those present, a neighbor of the deceased, had died suddenly without any ap parent cause. The meeting, horror stricken, adjourned ina body to ex amine the cow, and unanimously agreed th.M the animal had been be witched. No doubts were enter tained as to the perpetrator of the deed. Evidently burying was not enough to stop this dangerous old lady, and it was decided, after earn est discussion, to adopt the plan of making a horse jump over the witch's grave, and thus put an end to her powers. A horse was accord ingly fetched, but, strange to say, nothing would induce him to jump over the grave. This incontestable proof of the unholy influence eman ating from the spot caused the pub lic excitement to increase. The may or of the village decided to use a somewhat drastic means, much in favor in the Middle Ages, viz., to stab the witch's body with a red hot pitchfork. The body was exhumed, the fork heated, and the whole cere mony carefully carried out. But by the time the company had finished their work, and gone back to refresh themselves at the Wirthschaft, the authorities of the neighboring town had heard ol what was going on. A party of mounted police were sent to the village, and all those who had been concerned in the affair were taken into custody London Ex change.

Positive Proof OF Til U POWKB OP Hood's Sarsaparilla AR A Blood Purifier Hood's Cures the Severest Cases of Scrofula. "Gurncrville, N. Y April 17, 1893. "C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell : Mother has derived such marvelous benefit from Hood's Sarsaparilla that nhe wants me to write about It. A year ago the grip lelt her with Pains Around Her Heart and dreadful faint feelings. Then her neck began to swell nnd became very unsightly, she could not keen anything on her stomach: she was rnpidly running down, and we were very anxious n bout her. We read of a case ol goitre cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and she decided to try this medicine. Before she had taken one bottle the swelling began to decrease; she continued to Improve till she Regained Perfect Health and strength. She weighs 185 pounds and our whole family can truthfully say Hood's Sarsaparilla I a blessing to mnnklnd. We believe it saved mother from the grave." Miss Gkktkudb Slauson.

Well-Known Trustee ot tbc Painters' Union In Toledo. MANY OTHER WOKKINGMKN HAVING TUB SAME STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE, The panic just past bore hardest upon the working men and women. Theirs bus been the greatest worry. They have had to labor harder than ever to suport their families. Today there are thousands' of overworked and overworked people struggling along, ninny of them under the burden of dys pepsia, or insomnia, unhappy and fret ful, but not helpless as Mr. Moore shows. Those who awake more tired than when they went to bed, with an unpleas ant taste in the mouth, and the tongue parchcd.contcd.aud dry, know one of the signs of overwork. A poor appetite for breakfast, at times a complete distaste for all kinds of food (even the little reluctantly taken produc ing general discomfort) these symptoms demand n sober thought. Today it is known that the nerve centers govern all the processess throughout the body. Per fect digestion and assimilation require that the nerves work in harmony with the digestive apparatus. And it was on this recent highest medical information that Paine's celery eompoud, the medi ieine that makes people well, was first prepared. To nil who arc overworked, the following letter from Mr. T.J. Moore tells a story that should be read and heeded. It is from one of the plain peo ple: "I am greatly pleased with the good results obtained from the use of Paine's celery compound. Previous to its use 1 doctored with two of the best doctors here, and iny health was not improved in the least by the treatment 1 received. On the recommendation of a friend I procured a bottle of Paine's celery compound, and before I had used one bottle I noticed an improvement in my health, and I decided to continue its use and give the medicine a fair trial. 1 have about finished the fourth bottle nnd I have almost entirely regained my old-time health and vigor. My ailment was a disordered stomach, and my whole system was out of order. My ap petite vv;is poor arid very irregular, and as an old friend whom I met on the street expressed it, alter enquiring about my health when 1 was under thedocior's care, '0, you are a goner!" But iny im proved condition has convinced him of his inefficiency as a medical examiner and prophet." Mr. Moore is a citizen of Toledo, and lives at 2101) Finch street in that city. He is president of the trades' council and trustee of the painters' union. "He stands high with all union men," says the Toledo Blade. A careful man or woman either keeps Paine's celery compound on hand, or knows just where he can easily procure it. It is the remedy that makes people well. It has shown itself to be an ideal remedy in cases where nutrition is an im portant factor, and where digestion is feeble. It Is as lar superior to the ordinary nerve tonics and sarsaparillas as the diamond is to the ordinary glass. Dry it and be convinced. Gloves. New lot of Oloves Just received.
