The Point is To Know How One of the best portraits of Dewey ever made was drawn with a red hot poker. The man inew how, The finest Ice Cream Soda made in town is being served eveiy day by from one day to the next one who knows how. WALKER'S. 109 Eastern Ave. It is gratifying to his many St. Johnsbury Iriends that Major C. M. Bonettewas so popular and so tfh cient in the Vermont regiment. He proved himself a good soldier as everybody in St. Johnsbury knew he would and seme day we hope to see him the colonel of the regiment Turn on the Searchlight. If half the reports are true concern ing the treatment of our Vermont troopsin the hospital and the field the next legislature ought to havean offi cial investigation and find out who is to blame. The stories that the boys tell of their lack of treatment in the hospital and the forced marches on the field are enough to make one's blood boil and manv of these stories are substantiated by reliable witness es. The incompetency of the officer in charge of the regiment, the pres ence of drunken nurses in the hospi tal, the appropriation by attendants of milk and food intended tor fever patients, and many other gross out rages, are proper subjects lor a legis lative inquiry and we believe it will not be very difficult to fix the respon sibilitv for such misconduct. The Vermont troops were commanded by Vfrmont men. attended by Ver mont surgeons and the nurses and attendants in the bospital were under orders from these men. As far as the care of the Vermont troops goes the responsibility for such utter lack of care can be placed on Ver mont men. Turn on the searchlight and let no guilty man tscape. orce." One of the stanchest and most observant republicans in eastern Massachusetts made this remark Tuesday. And there are thousands of republicans who agree with him. Even this official sacrifice won't bring back a single life or restore a single constitution that was lost or broken because of incompetency in the war department. Springfield, Mass., Homestead. Dewey as the Hero of the War. Admiral Dewev could, of course, at any time since May 1 have bombarded and conquered the city ot Manna; nui although his task ot waiting was an ex tremely trying one, he had determined to make no attack that shouirr expose ine city to the danger ol anarchy and rapine. It wus hi9 policy towait until tnc unucu States had sent a sufficient number ot soldiers to maintain a safe and firm occu pation and prevent the disorders that would now irom a state 01 civil wunarc. With their fatal proclivity lor postpone ment, the Spaniards had waited a week too long. Our complete conquest of Manila had altered the facts, btcauseit had destroyed the Spanish argument that Manila was prepared to stand an ndehmtely long siege. It was, upon the whole, highly fitting that Admiral Dewey, whose brilliant exploit on May 1 had been the first great event of the war, should have received the surrender of Manila and, in consequence thereof, virtually secured the American posses sion ol the entire Philippine group as the result ot the last naval action of the war. Admiral Dewey's tact as a diplo mat and administrator in these past four months is not less remarkable than his boldness and brilliancy as a naval strategist. Moreover, he has shown that well-nigh perlect sen-mastery wnicn can wait with infinite patienceor can act with lightning-like energy, as the occa sion mav nature, ivianua is so iur nwnv. and the news since May 1 has come in so condensed a lashion, that we htive not known in minute detail how Admiral Dewev was occupying himself liut tne peo Die ol the United States have kit that the admiral was in a very unusual degree the embodiment of American pluck, common sense, cooi-lieadcclness ana in genuous resourcefulness ; and so they have kit a great Batisiaction in tne iaea that the Vermonter in the Philippines could be relied upon to take care ot him self and dominate the situation, regard less of Spadish captain-generals and the intrigues ot pompous (jerinan admirals not to mention tne soaring asijinuiuiia of restless native patriots like General A(uimildo. The winning side m every war devnopcs its nerots. ve are an glad to believe that many another officer of our navy would have given a splendid account of himsel' tt he had in Deweys nlace. been in command of the Asiatic squadron at the outbreak of the war But Dewev had especially ciuanneu nim self in advance for preeiselv the work he has so well executed : and bv unanimous consent he will rank first in the list of heroes of the late war.! From "The Proirrcss of the World," in the American Monthly Review of Reviews lor Septem ber. Shopping In Italy. The American finds much to try her in shopping in Italy. In the first place, briskness is unknown. The Italian al ways produces the impression ot keling that he has the whole day ahead of him. Two of his lavorite phrases illustrate this-"C'e tempo" (there is lime) and "Civuol pitzienzn" (one must have pa tience). Whether one agrees with the first one or not, she has ample cause and opportunity to exercise the second. 1 ne leisurely bearing with which the sales men bring forth their wares arives tne hurried and unphilosophical shopper to the verge of desperation. The very manner in wnicn gooas are kept stored in Italy is a fruitful cause ot aneuish. Suppose, for instance, that one is searching for spring underwear. With us such articles are Kept in ooxes ana drawers, and it is an easy thing to whisk them out and display them to the buyer. In Im!v. on the contrary, each style and size is wrapped in paper, and the pack age tied with a string. To make a selec tion it is necessary to nave Bn enuiess untying and spieading out of parcels, during which the would-be purchasers suffer from the fidgets. It is the same way with stockings and a variety ot other necessary articles, and tne buyer must either say and practice Lt vuol pazwnza or render nerseit Daimrupt in cellular tissue Another source of trial is what appears to us the outlandish method ot having thincs that apparently belong together sold in different establishments. Silks are found in one shop, woolens in an other, and ribbons in a third. At none of these can one buv needles and thread. Il a woman wishes to hang a pair of curtains, she purchases the materials at one shop, the rod and rings at a ditterent . n . . 1 J 1 n ace. the iron nxtures at a tnira, ana has to go to a fourth to find an uphol sterer to put them up. She must visit a tobacco shop lor salt, and cannot find as with us, vegetables, truit or oread at a grocer's. It may thus readily be seen that one must travel a good deal to do her marketing or shopping. Add to all this the contusion incident to the fact that the standards ot measure and weight are different Irom ours, a meter exceeding a yard, and a pound contain ing but twelve ounces, and a faint idea may be tormed ol the mental complied tions ot the traveller, there is also certain amount ol beating down to be done in nearly every shop; and even alter hall an hour s bargaining the purchaser cherishes awful doubts lest she might not have bought the thing cheaper, Shopping is really almost equal to the contemplation ol laded trescoes lor low ering the mental tone, and it is hard to say which has the more to answer for in the exhausted state in which most travel lers leave Italy. fChristine Teihune Herrick, in Harper's Bazar. Fighting for Good Roads. The St. Albans Messenger is doing splendid work in trying to educate the people to having better roads and it tells Vermonters that it is their own fault that they have not better country roads. Col. Smith knows the value of a good railroad bed and it is just possible that in his coming message he will recommend that state action be taken in the matter as has been done in Massa chusetts and elsewhere. The Mes senger says : It is no les: .rue than lamentable that the taxpayers of the state have been and are being heavily burdened with annual expenditures for the maintenance and supposed improvement of highways, a large part of which is wasted much of it worse than wasted. It is not necessary to fix or attempt to fix the responsibility for these conditions. That they exist is beyond question. Yc have gone on year after year in the same old way, patching here a little and there a little, carting on dirt one week to be washed away the next week or to be carried off away the following week. The only apparent reason for this is because it is following in the footsteps of our predecessors No one fairly conversant with the facts will deny that if the state of Vermont had adopted a systematic method of road building under competent super vision a quarter ot a century ago, the attractiveness ol the state as a summer resort would have been enormously en lianced, and that, too, without the ex penditure of a single additional dollar, This, however, is but a small item com pared to the saving to our farmers which would have resulted Irom improved highways. Secretary Alger. "The republican party is smashed unless McKinley removes Alger at Land Force of no Avail. The peace establishments of the French, German and Russian armies are at least 1,850,000 men and, perhaps, may be two millions, all highly organized. Their possible war establishments might amount to totals from six to eight mil lions of men. On the other hand, the peace establishment of the British Em pire amounts to one million ot men a part ol which is equally well, and another part not equally well, organized with the European armies. The possible war establishment ot the umpire has never been seriously estimated. The peace establishment of the United States is under 30,000 men, doubtless well or ganized. Like the British people, the Americans have never reckoned their possible war establishment, but evident ly they could, it so minded, raise it to a might'v strength. But neither British nor American leaders will, under the existing circumstances, consider land force as a dominent factor in any world wide problem. Their thoughts will mainly be turned to sea force. They will anxiously inquire whether the sea force of an Anglo-Americnn combination would or would not compare lavorably with that of an buropean combination It were needless to stop and show that all the buropean land forces would be o no avail against an Anglo-American combination, if that combination really possessed the mastery of the seu. From "An Anglo-American Versus a European Combination," by the Rt. Hon. Sir Rich ard Temple, in "North American Review" for September. What Foreigners Think of Our, Railways. What a lew foreigners have said of merican railways may be of interest: Li Hung Chang, the viceroy 01 tnina, said: "Nowhere else in the world are there such fast and luxurious trains as in America. . . Marquis Yamagata, field mnrshall ot the Japanese empire, said: "The speed, the comfort, the luxury of your rail roads, is a marvel to me." Prince Hilkoff, imperial minister 01 railroads ol Russia, said : "There is noth- ng in burope to compare with your rail roads." Sir Henry Truman Wood, special rep resentative of the British government to the world's fair in 1893, said that "no where in Euiope could there be found such luxury in travel and such excellent service as are givtn on the railways of he United States." Paul Leroy Beaulieu, one of the great est economists of Europe, writes: 'The continent of Europe, bv the bonds in which it has always held private enter prise, has been able to follow only with a tardy step the example of the United States, which nation has realized in its railroad system three ideal conditions, rapidity, efficiency, and a good market, while burope enveloped in administra tive formalism was destined to attain neither of these three conditions. A Critical Moment for America. Whether we capture and hold the Phil ippines, or Spain shall successfully resist our efforts, on the one hand, or war snan not bring us lace to face with the specific problems outlined, the truth remains, beyond question or quibble, tnat now is the critical time when the United States shall strain every nerve and bend all her energies to keep' well to the front in the mighty struggle that has begun for the supremacy ot tne racinc seas, u we seize the opportunity we may become leaders lorever, but "it we are laggards now we will remain laggards until the crack of doom. The rule of the survival of the fittest applies to nations as well as to the animal kingdom. It is a cruel, relentless principle being exercised in a cruel, relentless competition of mighty forces and these will trample over us without sympatln or remorse unless we are trained to endure and strong enough to stand tnc pace. From "The Problem of the Philippines," bv the Hon. John Barrett, late United States Minister to Siam, in "North American Review" for September. Remember the Oregon." Mr. Tudor Jcnks describes "The Voy age of the 'Oregon' " in the September St, Nicholas, Mr. Jenks says; The Oregon's magnificent behavior nder her terrific trials of endurance is a matter of pride to every American, be cause it proves that every bit of work in her making, manning and sailing has been done on honor and with skill. 1 ne Iregon shows us that not only have we brave men and skilllul gunners such as fought in Manila Bay, or drove Cervera's last cruisers ashore; selfsacrificiiig and able sailors such as sunk the "Merrimnc" in Santiago Channel; hardy, cool sol diers like the marines at Camp McCalla; regulars and volunteers such as never faltered in the storm of fire from the de tenders of Santiago but also honest workmen at home. The Oregon's record says that America is sound to the core; that she has something tuny as impor- tant as the "men behind the guns namely, the men who make the guns and the ships, and make them sound ana nt for any work. It is no wonder that our snips, our nuns, and our men are as goou as tne best, because, from the men in the lound ries to the admirals on their bridges, all work is done by honest, competent, pat riotic Americans. bo. if anv should be reluctant to join in the cry, "Remember the Maine I" there certainly is no man or woman, boy or girl, who may not sny with genuine and heartfelt patriotism: "Kemember the Oregon!"

Trout Penned for Food. - "I am surprised that people who live in the country, near a clear brook, or have an unfailing spring nigh, do no keep trout; keep them tor food, I mean as poultry or pigs are kept. Thus writes a subscriber who lett crowded quarter ol one ot our large factory towns and has made a home lor himself on the line of an electric car road, a lew miles out of town. "My house is near a small lake, and water lor domestic purposes is lorced to it irom a clear, cold brook by means of an inexpensive hydraulic ram. The con trivance is constantly pumping, and much water runs to waste. It occurred to me to dig a series of three pools along the loot ol my vegetable garden. 1 lined them up with stones and put gravel on the botton. bach pool was about do feet long by seven or eight in width ; and when the water Irom the waste-pipe was allowed to flow in, it was about lour feet deep. Several maples shade the pools ; it is a pretty place. At hrst mv idea was merely to Keep a few trout to look at: I like to watch them, and I know that others do. I put into the pools only 20 at first; but alter wards I procured 200 small ones from the state hatchery and set them free in the upper pool. The pools were now separated by weirs. "My wile generally fed the trout twice a day with what fell Irom our table, Occasionally I bought a little waste meat or liver for them from the butcher, since trout are essentially carniverous. They grew quite rapidly. They are much nicer to keep than a pig, or pigs, for they are cleanly creatures; and the pools puri ty t hctnselvcs. "I have connected the pools, or pens, with a little cove down at the lake by means of a water chute. The outward end, or mouth of the cove, is stopped, or nclosed around, bv a network ot woven wire; and in warm weather I allow the large trout to go down there, to lie in the shadow of the bushes, where thecool rook water conies in. "These trout have grown well and are healthy. lean now take out a pound nd-a-half fish for breaklast at anv time. It is really quite a luxury, well worth the labor and expense which, indeed, have been trifling. If I desire a fine fish I lave merely to take my rod and cast a fly for one. "We find our trout preserve one ot the pleasures of our country life, and desire to recommend the scheme to others who contemplate an escape from the city to rural retreats. Youth s Companion "What Head aches fleam" The dreadful headaches which women suffer mean nineteen times out of twenty that there is more trouble than headache. There is prob ably some un healthy condi tion of the del icate organism of womanhood and often added to this the digestive func tions are out of order; these two conditions cause nearly all the headaches from which n'mimn GIlfTpr. There are two great remedies specially adapted to these ailments invented by the chief consulting physician of the famous Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo. N. Y.. Dr. R. V. Pierce. His world-renowned "Favorite Prescription" is the most successful medicine ever known for the cure of distinctly feminine ailments and his " Golden Medical Discov ery" is the one supremely effective cure for digestive difficulties. Taken in conjunction they completely rejuvenate the nervous system of weak and debilitated women; giving health, strength and capacity to the nerve-centers; renewed power to the blood-making glands and energetic force to the entire body. A lady livine in Coshocton Co., Ohio, Mrs. W. T. Stanton, of UlissfieM, writes: " I had female weakness very bad for nearly three years. Had draKgitiic down pains in nnd above my hips and such clreauliil pains in uie oacK aim up ui my head (just as though someone was lifting me by the hair). Had no ambition, would try to work lew dayi then would have to lie in Den lor a long time. No tonjrne can express the simcnng I endured. I had much pain at monthly pe riods. I doctored most of the time with ns (rood a physician as there is in tne stale, nut nan no ease bnlv when I was quiet and off my feet and then I had more or less pain in my head. When I began taking Or. riercc s medicines l wemnen ioj pounds, and was very pale aim weaic. i tooit twelve bottles of the 'Favorite prescription' and seven or the '(.olden Medical Discovery.' Now I feel like a different person. Have no pain in my head, can do all my work for self, nusnnnu ana one cnuti;nin gnuiing in wcrm. i feel it is through God's mercy and your wonder ful medicines that I nm cured." Where constipated conditions exist Dr, Pierce's mild and agreeable " Pleasant Pel lets" should be occasionally used in con nection with the " Prescription." Three Women In War Time. One said, with a smile on her proud young lips: "I have brothers three ; they are far on the pea. For they serve on the decks of the fighting shi pi ! , In It strange that war comet home to me?" "And I, had I father, brother or friend. I would give them all at my country's call! My sorrow Is I have none to send. And my share in the glorious war is small!" But the third arose with face aglow: "Mine are a hundred thousand strong,-r Wherever n y countryman meets the foe, And my h-arfs in the war the whole day long!" Edith M. Thomas, In the September Cen tury. Slang from the Days of Old Rome. Miss E. F. Andrews writes an article on "Some Vagabond Words" for Sept em bcr St. Nicholas. Miss Andrews says : Passing through a vacant lot the other day where some boys were having a game of ball, I heard one of them who had got a rap on the knuckles from a "foul," exclaim, "Jiminy, that hurt!" and then, after rubbing his fingers a moment, he went back to his place on the field, little dreaming that he had just uttered a solemn invocation to the old Roman dem'mods, Castor and Pollux. For our vulgar "jiminy" is but a corrup tion of the Latin "gemini," twins, a name applied to Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Jupittr and Leda. These hero gods were the patrons of games and festivities of all kinds, nnd the espec ial friends of travelers; hence, when an old Roman exclaimed, "0 Gemini!' it was a devout appeal to the gods lor help or protection, very much the same as when a knight ot old caueo on nis patron saint. What the Word 'Qrog" Came From. Miss E. F. Andrews writes on "Some Vagabond Words" for September St, Nicholas. Miss Andrews says : The word "grog" has a curious his tory. It comes in a roundabout way from the French. gros-grain, of which our English "grocram is a corruption, meanincastuft of coarse and heavy text ure. Bluff old Admiral Vernon, who commanded the English navy just before our war of indepeni ence. wore breeches made of this material, and was nick named from that circumstance "Old GroH. He used to have his men mix water with the rum that he always served to English sailors as part ol their rations, and hence any dram mixrd with water came to be called "grog," and the place wheie such thingsare sold a "grog-gery." oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o o o o 8 o o o o o o o o o WHAT would vou think of a man who would start on a long journey, leaving his family unprovided for?

One of the quietest, most modest men in the navy, as unassuming as he is bril liant and uselul, is Commander George Converse, of the Montgomery. Coin- mander Converse is admitted to be the best torpedo expert in the United States navy and one ol the leading torpedo ex perts ot the world. He was the mam designer of the Cushing. He designed the Porter and the Dupont. His mind has a mechanical turn of the highest order. Much of his most useful duty has been at torpedo stations. He was last n command at Newport. He is also an expert m all matters relating to ord nance. In matters of naval history, the composition of explosives and marine mines he is the finest authority in the navy. He has never been known to get excited, and all who have served with him attest that he does the right thin at the right time and that there is neve anv exception to this rule. Commander Converse is a Vermonter by birth, was graduated at Annapolis in 1803 and has risen through ability and high personal merit to his present posi tion. That he will prove himself, if op portunity allows, as famous as a fighter as he has already been proved to be capable as a student and an ordnance specialist is not doubted by anyone who knows him.
