Mrs. Lincoln was possessed of a rarely beautiful and lovely Christian charac terher gentleness, self-possession and hopefulness inspiring everv one with whom she was connected. Her long life was marked by her great sincerity and generous devotion to her friends, and especially by her unselfish giving of time and personal ministries to the sick, the poor and the needy. Her many deeds of kindness and nameless gifts of tender service will long linger in the memory of tnose wtiose Durrens she lilted. During a painful illness of several months her Christian fortitude and im plicit trust in her God shone out in the same brightness which bad illumined her whole life, imparting cheer instead of gloom to the very end. The funeral was held at her late home on Saturday afternoon and was largely atteniVd The casVet was li den with fioral tributes from loving friends. Rev, Dr. Moxon of the South church, of wnicn Mrs. Lincoln was a member, con ducted the service and spoke very tender ly of the influence in the world of a Christian mother. The interment was at Peabody cemetery, Springfield. Weeki. George Langdon, the ten months old son of Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Weeks, died last Wednesday night at 8 o'clock.

At "Cedarhurst" a pretty home wed ding occurred last Monday evening, the contracting parties being William Rees Lloyd of New York city and Miss Marion Adelia Gilpatrick of St. Johnsbury, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nehemiah Gil patrick.

The snciul science committee furnished the programme for the September meet ing of the Woman's Club and Mrs. La ura Merrill, chairman of the commit tee, presided. A paper, "The Value of Fads," by Mrs. Lilla Patterson was first given in which was brought to notice many of the prevailing fads. Some were deprecated and others were suggested which might be made valuable helps to comfortable living. The paperabounded in wit and good sense. The last part of the afternoon was given to a talk(bv Prof. S. H. Brackett on "The Mitigation of Human Suffering due to Recent Scientific Discoveries." As to science in general, all scientific work is in the line of the higher culture and the devotees of science have always been ready to give their time for the "investi gation of truth, finding their reward in the pursuit of knowledge in itself. Aside from the discovery of anrestheiics, that of the Roentgen or X ravs is one of the greatest achievements of modern times. By electrical demonstrations, supple mented by blackboard drawings, it was shown bow the test of this wonderful discovery is being applied to surgical work. The lecture was illustrated with photographs taken by Prof. Brackett with the fluoroscope. Current events were given in three minute talks by Mrs. Martha Titcomb and Mrs. Abbie Perkins on "Vacation Rambles." Mrs. Titcomb gave an ac count of the mid-f ummer meeting of the Fish and Game League at Isle La Motte with incidents by the way.

The adjourned meeting in regard to building a new school house in Summer villewas held last Saturday afternoon. The meeting was called to order by George Ranney and Hon. H. C. Ide was elected moderator. The report of the committee was read by Harvlin Pad dock, and they recommended the build ing of a brick school house, to cost $10, 000 to $15,000, to be located in the place occupied by the present building, and the work to be begun early next spring. ii. l. Hovey spoke very strongly against placing the new building in the same location as the present one, on ac count of the proximity of the railroad and the public highway and suggested that the building be located on the op posite side of the road. Mr. Paddock said that the committee reported as it did because the town owned the land on which the present building stands and that they did not want to spend any more money than was necessary. Chief Justice Jonathan Ross, Prof. D. Y. Corn- stock, isupt. H. J. Jones and John Mc Donald all made speeches in favor nf locating the building farther from the rauroaa. Judge Ross moved that the same com mittee or some other be appointed to look up the matter of securing a lot on the other side of the road, and report to an adjourned meeting. Mr. Orcutt made an amendment to the motion by the addition of two more to the commit tee. Judge Ross and Prof. D. Y. Coni stock werendded to the committee and Siipt. Jones was chosen in pUtce of T. M. Howard resigned. The committee were instructed to report at a meeting to be held in two weeks, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The meeting was then ad journed. Business Notes. J. C.

A telegram was received Saturday from Camp Olympia to the effect that Com pany D would arrive in St. Johnsbury Sunday at about 12.30. Although the time was short the citizens hustled around and made preparations for a fitting reception for the company. At about half past 12 the grounds around the depot literally swarmed with people and there must have been nearly 5000 spectators present. The train was about 30 minutes late and when it did arrive was received with a salute which plainly showed the feeling of the crowd. As the train rolled into the station numerous railroad torpedoes were dis charged and cheers burst forth from thousands of throats. As the company alighted tbey were surrounded by rela tives and friends and many touching scenes occurred as they were greeted. Finally a line was formed which con sisted of a detachment of police, the St. Johnsbury Band, the Boys' Brigade, Chamberlin Post and Company D, headed by Maj. Bonnett. As they marched up the avenue lined with people the air was filled with cheers for the company, its gallant major and captain. The pro cession moved to the Armory, where the boys were served with an abundant re past provided by the ladies. It was a day of gladness for the sol diers and for the people. Almost no mournful faces were to be seen and the boys were received with smiles and laughter and hearty congratulations. Although the boys have seen no actual fighting, their thin faces and worn ex pression showed the privations which they have undergone in the last three months. For a time after the boys entered the Armorvthey were surrounded and greeted by relatives and friends. Rev. Thomas Tyrie, acting as chaplain of the day, requested that thedoxology be sung, after which he offered prayer, and the boys seated themselves at the table to enjoy the repast which awaited them. When the Vermont Regiment was given a 30 days' furlough a number of men were obliged to remain at Camp Olympia and do guard duty, and three were taken from company D. The ones left for guard duty are Corporal Morris and Privates Smith and De Marc he. Among the Churches.
