The Morrisville Citizen's prejudice against the Lake road has reached such a pitch that it referred to the road last week as"theSt. Johnsbury division of the Boston & Maine railroad." It also christens the two mixed trains the Sunset limited" and "Suburban flyer." Some St. Johnsbury men can make money while on a pleasure trip just as easily as if they were at home.

It is expected that a special train will be run from Lyndonville and Wells River.. A Patriotic Service. The evening service at the North church on Fast day was intended to be a patriotic service and all the speakers advanced ideas along these lines.
