The through freight traffic on the Lake road has been seriously crippled by the refusal of the Central Vermont manage ment to haul the colored lines of freight over their road from Rouses Point to Swanton. Cars of the red line, white line and blue line came from Chicago to points in New England under a through tarriff arrangement and as a result of the Central Vermont's policv four extra freights on the Lake road have been cancelled and train hands discharged. Years ago a charter was obtained for building the Lamoille Valley extension from Rouses Point to Swanton and sur vevors are now at work over there, but not in the interests of the Boston & Maine. Concerning this move the Swan ton Courier savs: "The rieht of Wav is still owned by the oarties that built the rond and no doubt but verv little work in the way oforadinff would be necessarv. Consider O c? ... . . . . t , able trestle would have to De Duiit, Dut that is a small matter with modern methods. It would be passing strange if that road between Swanton and Rouses Point, fully constructed and ready for business so many years ago, then sud denly abandoned and the rails removed, should again come into existence. Indi cations point strongly in that direction todav." RECENT DEATHS. Wright. Solon B.Wright died athishome about two miles from the village Saturday morning of heart failure. Mr. Wright had a severe attack of cholera morbus the day before and no results were feared until heart failure came in the night and he passed away. Mr. Wright wasborn in Thetford, April 10, 1827, and had resided in this town about 60 vears. He was married June 17, 1849, to Abbie B. Trcfren and their golden wedding was fittingly observed a few weeks ago. At the time of their marriage Mr. Wright worked in the scale' shops, but 36 years ago he moved to Four Corners" and took the Arnold house. This is one of the oldest houses in town and whs built by William C. Ar noi l, the son of the founder of St. Johns bury. Mr. Wright's farm consisted of 0 acres and he has been a hard work ing larmer, a laminar ngure on our streets where he came to market his produce, and one of those industrious types of farmers of whom this state has none too manv. He never held public office except to serve on the school com mittee when under the district svstem. He leaves a wife and two sons, George Wright, who lives on a farm above Fair banks Village, and Guy C. Wright, who lives on the home farm. He also leaves four brothers and two sisters, W. H. Wright, of Gilmanton, N. H.; Luman F. Wright, of Palo, Ohio; Dr. Arthur H. Wright, of Rochester, N. Y.; Hosea D. Wright, of West Concord ; Mrs. Elmore Hurlbutt, ol Elmore City.S.

JOHNSBURY, VT. Summer Receptions. A delightful "At Home" was held at "Monatiquot" last Wednesday after noon when Mrs. Elisha May received, in honor of Mrs. N. F. Putnam and Mrs. F. D. Buckley. In spite of the rainy after noon their many friends were glad to meet them again in this social way. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Elmore T. Ide was the scene of a large party last Thursday evening given in honor of their children, George P. Ide and wife, of Jack sonville, Ala., and Dr. and Mrs. Henry C. Ide, ot Mclndoes. The grounds were brilliantly lighted with incandescent lights and had the weather permitted many would have enjoyed themselves on the lawn. Music was furnished during the evening by the St. Johnsbury orches tra and the gathering was one of those delightful social events that make life in St. Johnsbury so attractive. Four gen erations of the Ide lamily were repre sented at the party from Miss Helen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George M. Gray, to the venerable Jacob Ide. The Misses Ide gave an atternoon tea Mondav in honor of their distinguished guest, Mrs. Isobel Strong. There was a large gathering of ladies and the after noon hours were most deugntluny spent The Fourth at Pretoria. The editor of the Caledonian has re ceived from Mrs. James Gray, who will be pleasantly remembered as a sister of William C. Tyler, a copy of the Pretoria News containing an account of the Fourth of July celebration at the capital of the Transvaal. The paper has fine illustrations of Presi dent McKinley, Consul-General Macrum of Pretoria, Dewey, Miles, Evans and Hobson and the account of the celebra tion is full of patriotism. During the day some of the Americans paraded the city carrying the stars and stripes and plenty of firecrackers and the affair wound up with a banquet, toasts and a hop. Besides Rev. and Mrs. James Gray many of our readers will be interested to know that Miss Cordelia Nevers, teacher in Johannesburg and a graduate of our Academy, was also a participant in the celebration. Tennis Tournaments. J. B. Richardson and Arthur G.Sprague returned from St. Albans Friday where they entered the tournament for the Gov. Smith tropy cup. They found themselves in pretty fust company, but put up a good game of doubles, winning tour games in each ot the two sets. Mr Worthington of Bennington, who has won the cup the Inst two years, was beaten in the finals by Mr. Fuller of Boston. It is getting so late in the season that the St. Johnsbury boys decided to give up the proposed tournament here and try and arrange for a state gathering here next summer. ' The Seventy Club. This organization met last Thursday afternoon in Grand Army hall to jointly observe and celebrate the birthday of Mrs. N. P. Bowman, which occurred on Aug. 12, and Major N. P. Bowman, an Vinnnrarv member of the club wno rounded out 77 years of active life on that day. Despite the heavy shower over a dozen members of the club were present and a few gentlemen guests. After a social hour the ladies read from various books, exhibited old schoolbooks, and Mrs. Lenora Brown recited a poem she learned in school. Following the custom Maj. Bowman was called on to give a brief history of his hie and he gave a most interesting account of hisearly life, his ex periences as a school teacher, Ins thrilling adventures in helping his father in pass ing fugitive slaves along through the un derground railroad and his army life. Rev. A. C. Hussey paid a deserving trib ute to Major Bowman's character and complimented the ladies highly upon their club. A fine supper was then served in the banquet hall which was a dcligutlul close to an enjoyauie aiternoon. The St. Johnsbury Fair. President Stiles has engaged two more attractions for the Caledonia county fair at St. Johnsbury, Sept. 19-21, which can not fail to interest many people. Prof. C. C. Bonette of this town and a lady aeronaut will appear the last two days of the fair. On Wednesday they will start out together and Mr. Bonette will land in the balloon and the lady will come down in a parachute. On the last day they will start out together in the balloon and both come down in para chutes. A strictly new feature will be the appearance daily on the track of a locomobile or horseless carriage and on the last day there will be a race between the locomobile and Dr. Stiles' running horse "Colonel." This promises to be one of the most interesting races ol the fair as both horse and machine are full of soeed. The attractions in front of the grand stand include the performances of the Martine Brothers, acrobats and tricksters, Reed's acrobatic bull terriers, Mile. Louise with ner rolling globe nnd the wonderful performances of Mile Nooyah on the wire and aerial ladder. Gift to the Athenaeum. Samuel N. Brown of Boston has lately presented the Athenaeum with a copy of "The History of the First Baptist Church of Boston, 1665-1890" written by Rev. Nathan E. Wood, its minister. In the preface the author says, "The church has made a history unsurpassed in interest by any other Baptist church in the new world. Its metropolitan position and its antiquity have made it a conspicuous and an emcient actor in many ot tne most startling scenes, not only in coloni al but in our whole American life." Much of the book is given to the re cords of the early years of the church and is a thrilling srory of suffering and perse cution, of perseverance and bravery. Tribute To Dr. Lamson. In the last issueol the Chicago Advance Rev. Dr. F. A. Noble, of Chicago, has a strong plea for President Angell, of Ann Arbor University, to succeed the late Dr. Lamson as president of the American Board. Our readers will be especially in terested in the opening paragraph. It is a sad necessity this of being obliged so soon a.fter his death to turn our thoughts to a fit successor to Dr, Lamson in the presidency of the Ameri can Board. This quiet Harttord pastor came so providentially into his place; he took up the responsibilities oi tne posi tion with such an easy, nntural grace; he was so earnest and Inithlul in the dis charge of all the duties which fell to his high othce; and ne gave sucn univer sal siitislaction to all the friends of foreign missions within the circle of our Congregational churches, that the question of a suitable leader for the Board seemed settled for many a year. But in a moment all our fondly cherished expectations were overturned ; and the place lor which it seemed so dif ficult two years ago to nnd tne ngnt per son is once more vacant. This place must be filled. Who shall fill it ? Establishing Golf Links. Alex. H. Findlay of Boston, represent ing the wen-Known nrm ot wrignt Ditson, was here last Thursday to lay out a golf course on the Underclyffe grounds. He laid out a nine hole course which he declares will iriake one of the finest golf links in the country as it com bines so many hazards with long drives up and down the hills to the north of Mr. Brooks' house. The holes range from 100 to 260 yards apart and work men have been busy this werk cutting away trees and shrubbery in the line of the course. Mr. Findlay came from Scotland about a dozen years ago and is regarded as the champion golf player of the world. Those who saw ins Deautmu unves nere last week were astonished at the skill with which an expert can control the ball and the great distance to which it can be driven with apparently so little effort. Railroad Notes. The Boston & Maine road is seriously cramped for cars to move the business that is being offered from all points and the shops all over the system are being rushed in an effort to supply the demand. The shortage is most marked in the freight department, and on account of the inability of the corporation to get new cars without great delay on account of the demands of railroads all over the country, the management have turned attention to the damaged cars which have been allowed to accumulate during the period of dull times. Everything that has got wheels under it is being rushed to the shops. These cars are generally in all stages of decrepitude, but given one sound sill to build on the car is turned out practically new within a very few days. , A ITanlla Paper. A copy of "Freedom," a newspaper printed in Manila comes to our notice this week, sent by Martin French who was on theU. S. S. Cudgua, and who was here through the winter. The paper was sent to Miss Emma A. Babcock and bears the date of July 4, 1899. The cover is very patriotic and is printed ia many colors. Admiral Dewey is given a conspicous place at the top of the page and at the bottom is a group of natives welcoming the Americans.
