Reed is clerking in F. A. Scott's GRAND ARflV ENCAMPHENT. A CSrriil Merling Aiircl iu Montreal. Chambcrlin Tost G. A. K.. is deeply in terested in the encampment next week and L. B. Harris of Lyndonvillc, depart ment commander, assures the Cai.kdo kian that the arrangements are all com pleted lor a notable occasion. As this is the first time the Grand Army has ever met in Canada the city government of Montreal and the citizens generally are going to make the affair a not able one, and there will be a great display of friendship between the two English-speaking nationalities. Mayor Lc Fontaine has written Mr, Harris a most cordial letter, and one paragraph is as follows: "I trust you will carry out your intention ol parad ing in our streets, bearing the American and British colors, which, intermingling, can only loster a good feeling between the two great nations." The mayor also informed Mr. Harris that the second day of the encampment is the holiday of the St. John the Baptist society, and it has been arranged to have the department of Vermont, with its bands, join in the parade on June 22. By order of the city council this clay has been made a local holiday. The American bands which will accompany the department have been invited to compete with the French bands for a silk banner and an interesting tournament, is assured. Veterans a'.l over the state and in the other states of New England are greatly interested in the encampment and the meetings will be the largest attended of any ever held by the Vermont depart ment. None of the invited guests have declined and the list is a notable one. It is especially fitting that the Grand Armv should meet in Montreal, and De partment Commander Harris is to be congratulated upon his selection of a place. During the civil war 44, 000 Canadiaus crossed the border and enlist ed in the northern armies. At the pre sent time there are posts in Quebec, Toronto, Coaticook, Hamilton, Belleville and Winnipeg, and it is expected that there will be goodly delegations from each of these posts, besides Hancock post of Montreal, the largest in Canada. On Tuesday, June 20, a special train will be run from Brattlcboro to Mon treal, reaching St. Johnsbury about 11 a. m. and comrades who are on the west side of the state can take a similar train. On Tuesday evening a reception will be tendered the visitors at the Windsor hotel by Hancock Relief Corps of Mon treal. The encampment will be called to order ot 10 Wednesday morning in Windsor theater, where all the meetings will be held. At 3 in the afternoon comes the annual election of officers, and there are two candidates for department com mander, W. H. II. Slack of Springfield and Hiram A. Huse of Montpclier. At 8 in the evening comes the campfire, at which Speaker Haskins of Brattlcboro will preside. The speakers will include Gov. Smith ol Vermont, Lord Linton, the governor general of Canada, and many distin guished Yermonters. The parade comes on the morning of the 22d, in conjunc tion with the St. John the Baptist so ciety, and at noon the newly elected officer will be installed, closing 1he official programme of the encampment.

COUNTY COURT. lutei-CKlinK Cimcs before the Jury. Last week Wednesday trial was begun intWrnsrol lennic Simpson vs. B. O. Davis. The cause of action was breach of promise to marry and the damages claimed thereby $2500. The attorneys were B. E. Bullard and Alex Dunnett for the plaintiff, J. P. Lamson, Elisha May and R. W.Simonds. Mrs. Simpson is widow of the late Oscar Simpson of St. Johnsbury, who died seven years ago last winter. She has a son aged 21 and a daughter 15. Her maiden name was Jennie Colbum and ner latncr s name iuum umjuh. . Barton, the home farm being near West Glover. The defendant is a widower of 52 and he has a son about 24. He is the proprietor of a general store at Greens boro Bend. From the evidence it appears that Mrs. Simpson entered upon the duties of housekeeper for Mr. Davis in June, 1895, continuing in that capacity for about three years. The plaintiff's evidence was in sub stance as follows: Very soon after she began working for him Mr. Davis began to show affection for her, in fact the next day alter her arrival he asked for a kiss as a reward for bringing in wood for her and he got it. They rode out together, walked together, attended various religious gatherings together. He had a habit when walking or sitting beside her, both in company and alone, of keeping one arm around her waist and holding one of her bands in his.

The doctors inform us that ulum is a poison, and that alum baking powders should be avoided because they make the food unwholesome. Prominent hygien ists, who have given the matter most study, regard these powders as an evil that should be suppressed by state ac tion. In Minnesota and Wisconsin alum powders are not permitted to be sold unless they are branded to warn con sumers of their true character, while in the District of Columbia the authorities have under the direction of Congress, adopted regulations to prohibit the use of alum in bread altogether. Are not the people ol other states, us well as those of Minnesota and Wiscon sin, entitled to a warning of a danger which is apparently menacing them at close hand, and is not the whole country entitled to absolute protection, as the people of the District of Columbia arc protected, by legislation which is en tirely prohibitive? Until we can have protection in the form of a statute, how can our state boards of health, state analysts or food commissioners better serve the public than by publishing in the newspapers from time to time the names of the bilk ing powders which they find to be made from alum ? Meantime, it will aid the housewife m desiLMiutine the alum powders to remem ber that all powders sold at twenty-five cents or less per pound are of this dan gcrouB class. Pure crenm of tarter pow ders are usually sold at from forty-five to fifty cents a pound.

The defendant looked upon the events ni those three vcars in a dillerent light n rlilT.Tcnt. in fact, that he denied nhmit idl the olaintiff affirmed. He never agreed to marry her, never though f it tifver wanted to. He didn t re member of kissing her in the presence ol uny of the witnesses, but as the side waiks are pretty narrow in Greensboro, "he may have had hold of her hand, on the way to church." She worked for him for $1.25 a week, although she claimed to have previously got $2 50 nrwiSriOO. She seemed to De trying to capture a man and when she found that he wasn't inclined to submit to capture, she was after many other men, notably one, Klkins, a photographer, with whom she was especially intimate and spent considerable time in his studio. The case was vigorously conducted on both sides and argued with ability, es pecially bv Messrs. Lamson and Dunnett. The jury took the case for considera tion Friday morning at 11.30. A ver dict was returned Saturday morning upon the opening of court at 9 o'clock for the olaintiff to recover of the defen dant $25 damages and costs.

Randall is an action in trover to recover the value of certain goods taken by the defendant from the house of the plaintiff, October 12 and 18, 1897. The plaintiff's name was Miss Mc Naninra before her marriage and tor a number of years she was in the employ r.f Mr Unmlull in his dry and fancy goods store on Railroad street.

On this occasion he took a nice hat from a trunk and ruined it bv stumping upon it. The va rious articles taken were enumerated and the reasons given for purchasing them. The plaintiffs salary, from $2.50 a week for a short time in 1887, to $9 during quite a part of the time she worked for Mr Hnnrifill. was used economically and in anticipation of her marriage she pur chased, at the reduced rates allowed clerks, many things for future use, as b he could spare the money. Some of the things taken by Mr. Randall were bought nil had been paid for, nnd receipted bills were held for many of them. , , , , The plaintiff made a remarkably good appearance upon the stand and a rigid cross examination of between four and five hours left her testimony unshaken. The defendant's evidence was to the effect that the search in question was made r nhiprtinn on the part of the plaintiff, that she confessed partially her guilt and expressed a desire to settle the matter. He claimed to nave ui large unaccountable losses while the plaintiff worked for him, in '94something like $900, in '96 about $1400. A part he claimed was due to alleged stealing by a younger sister of the plaintiff, whom he testified, he told the plaintiff had re turned to him 172 articles and $130 in money. . The retail value of the goods in ques tion was between $50 and oU. The evidence closed Tvesday afternoon and the arguments begun. The case will go to the jury today.

Snakes have the sense of smell. difficult to obtain food for the rattle snakes and copperheads out at the zoo logical park. The keeper has been try ing them on the honse rats and mice he has caught about the building, lie would leave tbeui in the snake cage over night and through the day. They would run over the snakes vith impunity. The snakes would pay no attention to them, bat when he happened to secure some field mice and put them in the cage the snakes ate them at once. He put in several rats nnd mice of the or dinary House variety mat were living out of doors under the Bidewalk. and these were seized by the snake9 almost as readily as the wild species. The keeper then conceived theidea of making an earth box to keep the rats in for awhile before feeding, and he found that if they were put in there for 12 hours or so before they were given to the snakes they would be eaten. The only npparent explanation is that the smell of the earth is agreeable to the snakes, and that the smell which the animals acqniro about buildings is ob jectionable. Chicago Record.
