The ladies of St. Aloysius church will hold a strawberry festival on Thursday evening of this week in St. Aloysius hall for the benefit of the church.

According to an act of the legislature of 1898, which takes effect July 1, every package of garden seeds offered for sale in Verniont must have the year in which they were grown plainly printed thereon. A penalty of $10 is fixed for every viola tion of this In w. This statute was en acted to prevent fraud in the sale of seeds. The annual camp meeting at Beebe Plain opens June 16 and closes June 26. Round trip tickets will be sold from all stations from Lunenburg to Morrisville and from Sherbrooke to White River Junction, the rate from St. Johnsbury being $1.65. On Sunday, June 25, a special train leaves here at 8 a. tn. and returns at the close of the afternoon meeting. The state board of health has issued its preliminary programme for the school of instruction for health officers to be held at Burlington, July 10-15. A very attractive and profitable series of meet ings have been arranged and the St. Johnsbury doctors who appear in the symposiums are Dr. W. J. Aldrich who speaks on infectious diseases and Dr. T. R. Stiles upon the Widal test for typhoid fever. A brisk breeze on Monday afternoon took off a large section of a tree in the corner of the Bullard lot, in the rear of the court house, and blew it with great force against the telephone line which crosses at that point. A large new pole which carried some thirty wires was broken off about halfway up, and the wires fell to the ground. It took Fore man Landon and his men several hours to put up another pole and get the wires into shape again. Special Town Meeting. The selectmen have posted the warning for a special town meeting to be held in the Town Hall on Saturday afternoon, June 17, at 2 o'clock. Following are the two articles in the warning: Article 1. To see if the voters will authorize the town school directors to rebuild the schoolhouse in Pierce's mill district, so-called, to replace the one that was burned on April 29, 1899. Article 2. To see what action the voters will take in regard to the propos ed construction of a bridge or viaduct on Portland street, in said town, from a point west of the track of the Connecti cut & Passumpsic division of the Boston & Maine railroad, extending easterly over said track, and over the tracks of the St. Johnsbury & Lake Cham plain railroad, and the Passumpsic river, to a point nearly opposite the dwelling house of John N. Gale on said street. The first article ought to be easily dis posed of as the school directors have made a satisfactory settlement with the insurance company and now ask for authority from the town to rebuild the schoolhouse. The second article gives the voters of the town a chance to ex- Eress their opinion on the subject of a ridge and viaduct and there ought to be a full and free discussion of the sub ject, and the Caledonian believes that there will. Hints from an Expert. Through the courtesy of Charles II. Horton we are permitted to reprint a letter received by E. & T. Fairbanks & Co. from City Forester Gale of Spring field, Mass., upon the best means of de stroying the caterpillars that are injur ing our fruit and shade trees. Mr. Gale, who is an expert upon this subject, writes as follows: Gentlemen: Replying to your enquiry, I would say that we have a gasoline engine and pump, that for spraying large trees is as good as anything I have ever found. It was made by the Daimler Motor Com pany of Steinway, Long Island City, N. Y. Should you correspond with them, they billed our machine as "Complete spraying apparatus';" this is ready to be mounted on any kind of a spring wagon. For smaller trees the bbl. pumps made by the Deming Company, Salem, Ohio, are what we use. I have three styles of their pumps but prefer the "Peerless" Fig. 449 all brass air cham ber, the action of the chemicals will soon destroy an iron pump. If they are not sold in your place Charles J. Jager Co., 174 High St., Boston, are their agents. My formula is as follows: Acetate of leadj 7 9-16 lbs. dissolved in 5 gals, hot water. Arsenate of soda, '2 3-4 lbs. dis solved in 2 gals, hot water. Glucose "H" 6 qts. dissolved in 2 gals, hot water. This is now all poured together and forms Arsenate of Lead. Always use wooden dishes, for the dissolving and mixing. This should be strained through cheese cloth, when it will be ready to use by adding 10 pails of water to one of the solution. That is, one part Arsenate of Lead to 10 parts of water. At this strength there is no danger of burning foliage, and it will kill all leaf-eating insects. The Acetate of Lead and Arsenate of Soda can be bought, I presume, from your druggist. Arsenate of Lead is being made this year for the first time by William H. Swift & Co., 66 Pearl St., Boston. They have my formula. Northern New England has been troubled of late very seriously with the Forest Tent Caterpillar, a black worm with lighter spots. If this is troubling you it can be destroyed easily when they are not feeding, then they are in their tents or bunched together. Fasten a sponge to a pole to form a swab, fill this with kerosene, break open their tents and swab tbem thoroughly with the kerosene, or if they are bunched, swab them off. This will kill the worms and there will not be kerosene enough to injure the trees. I am very much interested in the de struction of injurious insects, and if I have not made wnielt clear please let me know and I will gladly do my best to explain. I should have stated that should you use the Arsenate of Lead as you get it from Swift & Co., the Glucose should be added, that is to hold the poison on the toliage. Use your spray very hue. Yours truly, W. F. Gale. Sixty Days at Rutland. Landlord Herbert L. Doyle of the Avenue House has been found guilty of eighteen second offenses of selling intoxi eating liquor and of keeping a nuisance, by Justice Albro F. Nichols and last Thursday morning was sentenced to sixty days in the House of Correction and fined $25 for each offense of selling, $50 for keeping a nuisance and costs in each case, amounting in all to $519.02 Mr. Doyle paid his fines and left for Rutland Thursday morning on the 7.30 train west, in the custody of officer N R. Switser. The hotel having been adjudged a common nuisance, Justice Nichols has issued a warrant to the sheriff of the county, directing him to close it against the parties in occupancy. A bond will be required before the hotel can be rt opened, as in the cases against the beer dealers. State's Attorney Slack has also brought a bill in chancery against Mr. Doyle aud the parties in interest as owners of the building, asking the court to abate and enjoin the hotel as a com mon nuisance. The parties interested in this proceeding aside from Mr. Doyle are B. G. Howe, C. H. Stevens, W. E. Peck, Dr. T. R. Stiles, the Passumpsic Savings Bank and the Citizens Savings Bank and Trust Co. During Mr. Doyle's absence at Rutland L. B. Boynton of Morrisville will assist in running the hotel. Railroad News. The steamer "Lady of the Lake" is being thoroughly renovated for the coming season and will start her regular trips on Lake Mcmphremagog on June 26. C. C. Bullock will be the captain, but there will be a new pilot this year. Libby's Mills, a station in Canada on the Connecticut & Passumpsic division of the .Boston & Maine railroad, has been changed to Boynton. The Morris ville News and Citizen thinks this is an honor bestowed upon their townsman, L. B. Boynton, on account of his tem porary residence in St. Johnsbury. On June 18 the Canadian Pacific rail way will inaugurate a fast train to the Pacific coast to be called the "Imperial Limited." It will make the distance from Montreal to Vancouver in 100 hours. By leaving Boston at 8 p. tn., or taking the same train here at 3.15 a. m., it will be possible to reach the Pacific coast in less than five days and only changing cars in the Canadian Pacific station at Montreal. At the Academy. The changes and additions which have been in progress of late, within and with out the Academy buildings, are rapidly nearing completion, and very soon both buildings and grounds will be in readiness to receive the many friends who will re turn to St. J. A. at the Commencement season. To one who has not followed the vari ous changes that have been made the Academy buildings will present most striking and pleasing transformations. Every change has been in the line of strict utility, which has been secured with an accompaniment of great attrac tiveness. Few institutions can produce finer rooms and appliances, better adapted to their purpose, than those which are now to be found in South Hall, as the result of reconstruction. The five rooms in which Mr. Barbour's courses are being conducted present a busy picture during the school hours. Here practical business problems are solved by practical methods, and the se rious air that pervades the room shows that serious work is being done. In the Academy building new recita tion room furniture and apparatus have wrought marked changes in the general appearance of affairs. The new physical laboratory, connected with the science recitation room, is most conveniently placed and well equipped for effective work. Friends ot the Academy will alwajs be welcome and it is hoped that their interest may lead them to visit and inspect the buildings under the new con ditions. The Athenian society has elected the following officers for next year: President, Miss Grace Merrill. Vice President, Miss Hunt. 2nd Director, Miss McLam. 3d Director, Miss Greenwood. Secretary, Miss Carpenter. Asst. Secretary, Miss Darling. Keeper of Keys, Miss Rickaby. Student Correspondent, Miss Poole. Mr. and Mrs. P. F. Hazen entertained the senior class, the faculty and the trustees last Friday evening. The Athenian society has received an other very welcome gift a picture from James Ritchie. Convention at Barre. The Congregational Convention of Vermont is to be held with the Barre Congregational church June 13, ,14 and 15, the programme of which meeting was given in the Caledonian of May 24, Tuesday is to be devoted to the Woman's Meeting when various reports will be given and officers elected for the ensuing year. ' Addresses will be made by workers from the field and in the evening the closing public meeting will be held iu the Congregational church. Convention tickets on the railroads will be on sale Monday, June 12, and will be good to return until Friday, June 16. Kound trip tickets from at. Johns bury are $2.45. Macadamizing the Avenue. The village trustees have commenced the much-needed improvements on East ern avenue and it will take tbem several weeks to complete the job as they mean to be thorough in the work. The street will be greatly improved in various ways and an even grade of about seven per cent established from Dr. Bullard's house to Main 'street. This will necessitate lowering the street in front of the old Caledonian office and filling in a little opposite the Pythian building. At the latter place the street will be widened and a concrete sidewalk laid onthesouth side of the street after the street has been widened. A concrete strip of walk will also be laid from the Pythian building to the V. M. (j. A. building to conlorm to the grade of the street. After the crade of the street has been established the crushed stone will be put in and very thoroughly rolled down by thenewroller. Annual Heetlngs VV. H. M. U. Mrs. Abijah Smith served tea to 23 members of the South church W. H. M. U. at her home on Summer street Thurs day afternoon, May 25. The following officers were elected for the next year: President, Mrs. C. H. Merrill. Vice-president, Mrs. George M. Howe. Secretary, Mrs. Harry M. Nelson. Treasurer, Miss Elizabeth J. Hawes.

Bids for the Schoolhouse. The bids for the construction of the Summcrville schoolhouse were opened last week by the school board and they were as follows : George E. Gookin, Lyndonvllle, $23,250.00 M. H. Gibson, Ryegate, 17,11114.00 Ward & Douglas, Woodsville, 17,8411 00 Bragg Sc Morris, St. Johnsbury, 17,795.00 Mason & Co., Burlinuton, 17,225 00 E. C. Gitchell, Woodsville, 10,594 93 0. H. Welch, Clinton, Mass., 16,074.00 Mr. Welch, who is the lowest bidder, will undoubtedly get the contract and he is prepared to commence at once and complete the building this fall. The di rectors have not yet decided as to the location of the building and so nothing can be done towards starting the building. The Woman's Club. Village Improvement was the topic of the afternoon at the Woman's Club on Monday and, as usual, proved a most interesting and practical theme. Believ ing that "Charity begins at home," it has become the custom of the club to give this committee first place in the year's program, that the suggestions given may be put into practice during the months following. Mrs. Minnie Hazen, chairman, opened the meeting by giving "a brief review of the work of the club along village improvement lines since its organization in 1892. Mrs. Helen Ross and Mrs. Florence Stafford followed with practical talks on "The Forest Tent Caterpillar" and "Street Cleaning." "The Club House" was the subject of the paper given by Mrs. Belle Stevens which outlined a plan for our model club house which is sure to add to the movement of village improvement in the visionary future. The picture "Christ Among the Doc tors " by Hoffman was on exhibition. It is to be placed in the eighth grade school room where it may be seen by visitors on Patrons' Day. It may be remembered that the school children of this grade cooperated with the art com mittee in selling tickets for Mr. Bailey's evening lecture in April the proceeds of which furnished this beautiful decoration for their school room. A Reciprocity Bureau has been lately established in connection with the State Federation. Three essays read before the St. Johnsbury Woman's Club are to be sent to this bureau. The topics of these papers were arranged by the com mittee on History and Travel and were given at the March meeting us follows: Moorish Influence in Spain, Miss Maud Sprague. Spanish Conquests and Colonial Rule, Mrs. Emma Cheney. Our Relations with Spain, Miss Martha Hall. It is hoped that the- exchange of thought in this way may give the club movement a new impetus in the state. The chair appointed Mrs. Hattie Story, Mrs. Ella Horner and Mrs. Sarah Marshall to serve for the year as rooms committee, Mrs. Mira Blodgett, Mrs. Martha Titcomb and Mrs. Annie King as calendar committee. .It was voted to withdraw from the National Federation. The July meeting is to be a Patriotic Garden .Party given by the social com mittee at the borne of Mrs. Belle F Fletcher. Thirteen new members were added to the club list.

Charles Taylor of White River June tion, the octogenarian driver of Factory Boy, was thrown from his sulky in the races at Barre Inst week. Mr. Taylor is as nimble as an athlete and escaped without any injuries. Entries for the races July 4 should be made with Fred S. Harriman, secretary of the association that is arranging for the trot at the St. Johnsbury Fair Ground. Mr. Ballard of White River Junction, the veteran owner ot Snowfluke, was here on Friday. Mr. Ballard still keeps up a lively interest in the turf aud is the owner of Robert B., a very promis ing trotter. Officers of the state fair at White River Junction, the Sheldon fair, the Morris ville fair and the Caledonia county fair, met at St. Johnsbury last Friday to ar range for a circuit of races for the fairs which come the first four weeks in Sep tember. All the fairs will have the fol lowing classes: 3 minute, 2.40, 2.35, 2.22, 2.18, and free for all. Each asso ciation will arrange their own purses and these will be announced later. The dates of the Caledonia county fair are September 19, 20 and 21. This is the best circuit ever arranged in this section and it means some excellent trotting at the county fair. A Temperance Address. Music Hall was well filled last Sunday evening to listen to the address of Judge L. H. Thompson of Irasburg, under the auspices of the Anti-Saloon League. The exercises opened with music by a quar tette from the North church choir, scrip ture reading by Rev. Dr. Fairbanks and prayer by Rev. G. W. Hunt. Dr. Fairbanks in opening the meeting said the league was formed to promote the interests of sobriety, good order and good citizenship. He referred to the for mation of the first temperance society in this town 71 years ago and said he held in his hand the book containing the 61 names of that society. In closing he said he voiced not only for one citizen but for many others the work of the state's at torney and the officers associated with him. In introducing the speaker of the even ing, Wendell P. Stafford said this move ment was not a crusade or anything fa natical, but the enforcement of a law which had been on our statute books for 50 years. Judge Thompson spoke for an hour in a clear, convincing and very fair manner and was occasionally interrupted by ap plause. He began by referring to the fact that no nation of drunkards had ever prospered and that the drink bill annually was a tremendous burden upon the laboring man. "No one thing is a greater promoter of divorces in this state than the drink habit; it is one of the most fruitful sources of crime and pauperism as well. The state has a right to make laws to preserve the sanctity of the home for that means the life of the state. "The present prohibitory law is the most efficient and most reasonable liquor law of any state in the Union." Judge Thompson then spoke for a few minutes upon the use and abuse of the town agency and explained very clearly the wording of the law regarding the selling or furnishing of liquor. He said that the only defect of the law was that the penalty is not large enough. He then cited a number of murder cases in this state in recent years that were di rectly the results of intemperance. He paid his respects to the supporters of high license in the last legislature and said that if that bill bad become a law a saloon could have been placed by the side of every house in Vermont as there was no limit as to the number of saloons. "The passage of the bill was urged in the interests of temperance, yet every saloon keeper would have to furnish $5000 bonds to prevent any damages that might accrue from liquor selling. In the eyes of the law and morals the hand that casts a ballot for high license is just as crimiual as the hand that passes the whiskey over the counter." "Public sentiment has been lax in this state and we need more old-fashioned, energetic temperance work. All good government rests in the end upon the individual. We should first do our duty by electing good men to office, then we should watch the officials to see that the law was enforced. However efficient a Btate's attorney is he must be aided by the citizens in enforcing the law. When you elect a man to office you should insist that he does his duty or ask him to resign. It makes no difference what your opinion is of this law ; it is the law of Vermont and it is your duty to enforce it on any and all occasions. "There is a great improvement in the drink habit in this state over past years, but there must be eternal vigilance along the whole line. Have a fixed determina tion that the saloon shall not become a factor in politics and if the question is again tested iu the legislature they will hear from old Vermont."! County Court. The June term of the Caledonia county court opened Tuesday morning with Judge Laforrest H. Thompson presiding. Under the law passed by the legislature last fall the jurors did not appear until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The forenoon was occupied by the opening formalities and reading of the docket. Prayer was offered by Rev. G. W. Hunt of Grace Methodist church. A larger number of cases were taken from the jury list upon the call of the docket than nsual, by continuance", set tlement and otherwise. The cases in the first day's assignment were all disposed of. The first case now standing for trial is that of Jennie Simpson vs. B. 0. Davis. This is a breach of promise case. The attorneys are B. E. Bullard, and Alex. Dunnett for plaintiff, Bates, May & Simonds for defendant. A jury will probably be impaneled the first thing this morning upon opening of court at 9 o'clock. Next in order is the case of A. H. Rickcr vs. Montpclicr & Wells River R. R., a suit to recover damages for burning over land. Hon. Thomas B. Hall of Groton was appointed foreman of the grand jury. The charge of the court to the grand jury especially emphasized the require ments of the prohibitory law. Base Ball Notes.
