THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, JANUARY 28, 1898.
I A Bad Disease. Editor Caledonian: It is an old trouble and a very bad one. If we now try to diagnose it, it is quite likely we will be thought not much of a doctor. But as newspapers and other publica tions hardly ever say much about it, we venture the task, even withoutadiploma, or a guarantee of our ability in the line of political therapeautics. This disease has already become chronic, and is assuming greater virulence each successive year. It is a germ dis ease of great magnitude, and why some moral doctor has not discovered a remedy for its buleful influence is more than lean guess, especially so in this ageof wonder ful discovery. This disease, without a Latin nam', is called the office-seekers' disease. That it is "catching," we have no doubt. And when it gets to going, how it spreads! Strange as it may seem, it runs in the blood of some of our best families; and the more the civil stomach is out of order, the harder the disiase is likely to run For one. we think it wouid not be a bad plan to quarantine chronic office-seekers and hang up at their doors placards of a sicklv color, as danger warnings to all who have not caught the disease. This disease is likely to break out at anytime; but it is apt to show sym toins, sometimes alarming ones, just be fore town meeting, or some public elee tion. The only quieting remedy we have noticed for such symptoms, is the defeat of the candidate. He is then apt to lie in a comatose state until another election, which is worth something; but it is no cure. When this hungry disease nas "gotten him in the wind," the only way to Ret along with him is, to give him the official nursing bottle now and then, as a soporific to ease office-seeking pains; and where this help cannot be had, the patient is apt to fall into premature decay from the unsatisfied longings of the heart. This disorder is far-reaching in its con sequences. When the disease is fairly on, the poor victim dares almost anything. Good counsel or advice Irom friends isn't worth a cent to him. He spends his time and moi ey in political lottery. He soon believes he is a man of importance, and that his "turn" has come to serve the dear people. He becomes puffed fp with personal conceit, boldness, and vanity. And sometimes he resorts to question able methods to carry out his ends. This disease, so lar as civil life is con cerned, is a bad malady. Our remedy would be. that no decent man should seek for office ; for in a large measure t bis proves a delusion and a snare. Let men wait until such time as the people 6hall call for them, then it will be all right. If they are not culled for, it is evidence enough that they are not wanted ; and to want an office belore this lime, a man had better wish himself in tophet and done with it. A man who gets to love office, soon thinks he owns it. Office holding, in its true sense, is the serving ol the people. It is ol honor to any man when honor ably gotten and honorably filled, and in no other way. There is no money in most of offices, unless one surreptitiously use it to speculate wiih. Let us say to the good people of St. Johnsbury, that at our next town meet ing they be not over anxious about it. Let the people choose their own servants without let or hindrance. Don't go into intrigues or privatecaucusesatall. There can hardly be any serious mistake made in the election of officers in this town, when there are so many good men to choose from. We ought to feel proud that this is so. And it will remain so, it the Dtoule do not catch the office seekers' disease, which to make the best of it we can, makes fools ol us all. F. V. Powers.

The strike of the Queen Cit v cotton mill weavers is ended. Practically all the weavers resumed work Monday morn ing, and at the reduced schedule of seven and three-fourths cents per cut. The carders, too, have resumed work at the revised rates. There were no quarrels, no compromises in this btrike. The cotton mill people said the price of labor must be reduced, and the weavers said they would not work for less than they were getting. Thev held out lor two weeks, but the mill people made no concession, and most oi the weavers nave gone back to work, preferring to work for smaller wages than to suffer the alternative of starving. It was the intention of the strikers to lorm a union on Saturday and to bold out for a time longer. Late in the afternoon they held a meeting, at which all the strikers were present. They were addressed by Mayor Peck. Hesaid that be believed it would be better lor tbem and their families to go back to work. He urged them to keep at work until they could better themselves. He told them to try to be faithful to their employers and to better their condition in that wav. Mayor Peck also prom ised Ins assistance to induce thecompany to give higher wages when the times and conditions of business warranted it. So the strikers took his advice and the mill started up again this morning. Mana ger Cook says that nearly all of the striking operatives are back again and he anticipates that all of them will be back by tomorrow or next day. If not their places will be filled. Thus ends the cotton mill strike. Electric Railroads. E. C. Crosb of Brattleboro, a member of the syndicate which owns the Spring field electric railroad, and has in prospect the building of a road from Northamton to Amherst, in Massachusetts, besides one or two others, has given out the statement that the svndicate stands ready to construct and equip an electric railroad from Brattleboro to Northfield, Mass., if the towns of Brattleboro and Hinsdale will pnt in the necessary bridges and if these towns and Northfield will take a certain amount of the stock in the road. He believes that a road from Brattleboro would be a paying enter prise. The cost of the road complete, aside from the bridges, would be about $175,000. The Bennington and Hoosick Valley electric railroad has been morigag d to the International Trust company ot Bos ton for $250,000. The mortgage deed covers the Hoosick Falls road, which has been in operation several years, and the road which is in process of construction between Bennington and a point some distance below North Bennington tocon- nect with the Hoosick Falls line. Both roads were recently consolidated under the above name. The total length of the road is I6V2 miles. It is thought by the company that tne Bennington eno 01 me line will be run within two months. 1 wo of the fine vestibule cars have already arrived at Bennington. The brick car house at North Bennington has four tracks and will store the company'sfour- teen cars. The Bradford Bank. A new development in the affairs of the Bradford Savings Bank and trust com pany was brought to light Jan. 14, when a minoritv of the stockholders appeared bv their attorneys E. W. Smith, Paul Lnno and . H. Fcckett at a meeting 01 the board of trustees and demanded in formation as to the condition of the bank. President Hale stated that the buoks of the bank, its securities and nil iis affairs were ooen to inspection. W M. Stockbndgeol Boston, whoappeared as ihereoresentativeof Robert F.Straine. insisted uoon the right to be informed unon be hall ot Mr. Straine as a scock holder. Mr. Straine's stock having been sold and transferred upon the books ol the bank. Mr. Stock bridge was relused George A. Dickey represented Mr. Arnold ol New Bedford. Mass., a large stock holder. The meeting was harmonious and at the request of the trustees a com mittee ot thiee was chosen to co-operate with others and make a thorougu inves tigation. The trustees and depositors and a majority of the stockholders have confidence in the institution and look forward to a report of the committee in reliance that it will vindicate the bank.

E. Kiser in Cleveland Leader. His Wedding Fee. The wife of a well-to-do Vermont farmer called the attention of her bus band to a newspaper article describing a wedding, where the groom had compen sated the minister for his services in farm produce. " How ridiculous! commented the good lady. Her husband smiled. "It isn't tne or dinary thing," he remarked, "but then people who live in glass nouses mustn t throw stones." 'What do you mean, Jonas Farmer r asked his wile 6harply. "Well," returned Jonas, "when 1 mar ried vou I paid the minister two pigs, and he gave me 35 cents change;" And with that Mr. farmer oursc into a laugh, to the great discomfort of his wile. "I've lived with vou thirty years, and I never heard that belore," she said ; and I should like to know what you mean bv it. I believe your saying that just to hector me." "No, M n, answered ner spouse wnen his mirth had somwhat subsided. "I II tell you how it happened: You know I had been, running tne farm for father before we were married, and Parson Steadman, who married us, had just come to town. He wanted a couple of pigs and came over to our place to get them. I was gone, but the hired man sold tnem to mm ny weigui, and they amounted to just $10.35. Parson Steadman told the man that he hadn't the money bv him. but would be over again in a few days and settle, and the hired man told him that would be all right. "Well, when we were married, 1 gave the parson a brand new $10 bill, one that I had got clean lrora tne bank, lor that purpose. "Next morning, bright ana eariy, over came the parson to our place. He asked the hired man if I was at home, and when I came out he was pretty much surDrised to see that I was the same man that he bad married the night before. He turned kind of red and looked a little queer, and said he had come over to settle for those two pigs; and he took from his pocket that very $10 hill that I gave him the night before, and 35 cents besides, and handed them to me. "I burst out laughing, and he looked kind of sober for a minute, then he burst out laughing too. "If I had recognized you as the man 1 owed for the pigs when you were at my house last night.' he said, 'I could have handed you the 35 cents, and we should have been square." "So you see, M'ri( that while we went through the form of passing the money back and forth you were practically bought for two pigs minus 35 cents." London American. A ticket was taken up, the other day, on the Boston & Maine railroad, says the Lebanon Free Press, good from West Lebanon to Lebanon, that the purchaser had had for more than 30 years. It was bought during the war, but never used until this time. It was issued belore the birth of the conductor who took it. FROM FOOT TO KNEE Ohio Woman Suffered Great Agony From a Terrible- Sore-Her Story of the Case, and Her Cure. " For many years I was afflicted with a milk leg, and a few years ago it broke out in a sore and spread from my foot to my knee. I suffered great agony. It would barn and itch all the time and discharge a great deal. My health was good with the exception of this sore. I tried a great many kinds of salve, but some would irritate the sore so that I could hardly stand the pain. I could not go near the fire without suffering intensely. Some one Bent me papers containing testimonials of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and I told my husband I would like to try this med icine. He got me a bottle and I found it helped me. I kept on taking it until my limb was completely healed. I cannot praise Hood's Sarsaparilla enough for the great benefit it has been to me. It cleanses the blood of all impurities and leaves it rich and pure." Mrs. Anna E. EAKEN, Whittlesey, Ohio. You can buy Hood's Sarsaparilla of all druggists. Be sure to get only Hood's.
