THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, AUGUST 30, 1899.
3 PEACH AM ACADEflY ALUHNI. Full Ilcport of their Ilecent Interest, ing Gathering. The second annual meeting of the Alumni Association of tbe C. C. G. S. held at the Academy Hall on Thursday eveuingi Aug. 17, wa9 well attended and was considered by every one present a great success. The business of the association was first considered. One object of the asso ciation is to aid the Academy 6nancially anil the treasurer reported that $128.10 had been expended by the association since its organization in equipping the laboratory and $50 for an extra teacher. This year it has been decided to expend the income of the association arising from interest on its fund and the annual dues for painting the school rooms and making them more attractive. The income of the association arises largely from the annual dues, and all old students of tbe Academy who are inter ested in its wellare should be members of the association. Applications for mem bership may be sent to the secretary, Miss Mary L. Martin, Hackettstown, N.J. Another interesting feature of the busi ness meeting was the appointment of a picture committee who should try to obtain for the school picture of a his toric nature, or of famous buildings or anv that would cultivate a love for the beautiful, also pictures of former teachers or noted men and women who were educated here. The following committee were appointed: Prof. N. J. Whitebill, Montpelier; Julian Rix, New York; Mrs. F. E. Sargeant, Anaconda; Miss Tirzah Guy, Feacham; E. C. Blanchard, Peach am. It was decided to have a banquet at the meeting next year. The following programme was then listened to: An address was given by the president of the association, Francis E. Sargaent of Anaconda, Montana, which was tbe feature of the evening, and is given in full below. This was followed by a trio, "Distant Chimes," by Nellie May Har vey, Minnie E. Brown and Elizabeth Parker. Five minute speeches were then piven by C. A. Bunker and George P. Blair. The former concluded his remarks by saying that it was the one regret of his lile that he was not an alumnus of this institution, and the latter thought that after listening to the eloquent address of the president Blair had better take a back seat and listen to the visit ing strangers. Miss Sarah Williams pave a piano solo. Then a few remarks were made by Charles Choate, who said in conclusion that when he was a young man he made up his mind he would always keep good company and he was very sure he was in good company this evenitii;. A paper was then read by Mrs. Mina Hooker, who began by saying that it seemed strange to limit a woman to a five minute speech, and concluded by saying that as a watch maker hangs out a wutch as a sign of his trade, so the man's face is hung out in the White Mountains to show that men are made in New England. An address was made by Lewis Meadcr of Providence, K. I., which is given below in full. Frank Gould of Chicago was then called upon and madea few remnrks to the effect that he would not deny his birthright by letting his voice be silent. Following this was a solo by Margaret Harvev. A paper was then read bv Miss Florelfa F. Clark of Plninficld, N. ., who related an anecdote of a little boy who was kept after school by the teacher for some misdemeanor and on asking him what he bad to say about it, the boy replied, "I haint nothing agin ye," and the application was made that we should do for this school so that the young people of the future would have nothing "agin" us. We were then favored with a solo by E. R. Mackay, concluding the exercises wtiicta were followed by a social at which refreshments were served. REMARKS BY P. E. SARGEANT. It affords me great pleasure to meet the Alumni of the Caledonian County Grammar school here tonight on this occasion of the second annual reunion of the association to view the scenes and renew the acquaintance and the friend ships of school days. It was a great disappointment to me that I was prevented by an unfortunate accident from attending the centennial anniversary of the school when this as sociation was lormed. I am heartily in nccord with both the idea and the ob jects of the association, and the large at tendance here tonight is evidence of the great interest you all leel in its success, and the further fact that there are pre sent the young, the middle aged and the old Alumni, representing as they do widely separated sections ot our country is proof if any were needed, that how ever great mav be the time and the dis tance which seoarate the Alumni of the Academy from their school days, the fires of affecton for their beloved alma "inter still burn brightly upon the altar oi their hearts. It is I think natural and perhaps allow 'hie on these occasions of reunion to in dulge a little in reverie, and in selt con gratulation at havine been connected with an institution so venerable, so honorable, so successful and so eminent ly worthy of all the affection we can be stow upon it. Established during the in fancy of the republic, within ten years or 'ssirom the adoption ot tne constitu tion which made us a nation, instead of, as before, a mere confederation of states, only five or six years after the admission of Vermont into the union as a state, while the foundation principle upon which our eovernment is builded, namely uPon the consent of the governed, was as. yet comparatively speaking an un tried experiment, our Academy witness ed the earlv struggles of the republic, w it grow trom small uegimnngs iu us present magnificent proportions, and itself trrew with the irrowth and strengthened with the strength of our common country. The founders of the Academy, as we have always known, but as I for one more particularly learned from reading the very able, interesting and instructive historionl nHrlfpaa n( Prnf. Rnnkcr. de livered at the centennial anniversary of me school two years ago, are among the 'ost Honored and respected men in Ver mont's history, who laid firmly and se curely the foundations of the school's subsequent career, whose labors in its behall, and whose memory constitute its most valued legacy, and whose names are still borne in honor by their descen dants, some of whom are members of our association. The school was alwavs verv fnrrnnnr almost without exception in the high order of ability and of character which its corps of instructors possessed. Other members of the association will doubt less, as opportunity offers, speak more particularly of the instructors who pre ceded, and succeeded my time at school. vji inose wnom I personally kuew the preceptresses and their assistants in all the various branches taught by them were always without exception well qualified by nature and wel fitted bv education for their respective duties, Huuec to wnicn each possessed a charm ing personality which endeared her to her pupils and for whom I, in common I Deiieve with all the male pupils enter tained a school boys love. Of the principals of the school without desiring to be invidious when all were so worthy, the two whose influence was very great and upon whose virtues me mory particularly loves to dwell, were the first and the Inst. I was too young at the time to understand and appreciate at their full value as I did later the sterl ing qualities of mind and heart which Thomas Scott Pearson possessed. Be neath a somewhat stern cast of counte nance as 1 remember him beat a kind and gentle heart. A man of sterling worth, and exalted character, as well as a competent instructor his whole life walk and conversation was an impres sive object lesson to his pupils of a digni fied manhood. A little later in the his tory ol the school it was its good fortune to secure tbe services as principal of Mr. Charles 0. Thompson, whose many virtues, those of you who were fortunate enough to attend the centennial anniver sary two years ago heard very eloquent ly and feelingly portrayed by one of his pupils, Mrs. Augusta Hunt, a man whose lovable disposition, frank engag ing manners and winsome smile drew all hearts, who governed through tbe affec tions, who had the happy faculty ot being pleasant and sociable with bis pupils out of school, without loss of dignity or impairment of bis government in school who although a young man jnst out of college when he came here at once took a leading part in all the affairs of the community outside of the school both in church and state by virtue of his high character and abllitv, who left here for a wider field of labor, but whose phvsique was not equal to the demands made upon it, he early succumbed to disease, and a life of great usefulness and value to the world was prematurely ended, when Mr. Thompson died. If the spirits of our departed friends ever revisit the scenes of their earthlv tabernacle then surely the spirit of Charles 0. Thompsou must be looking with intelligent interest on this scene of his earthly labors, where for years he presided over the destinies of this school as teacher, counsellor, friend, whose con nection with the school records one of the brightest pages in its history and whose influence upon the minds and hearts of those who were fortunate enough to come under its sway will ever live and abide with them, as a cherished possession as long as life and memory last. As the rivulet unites with other rivulets from countless ravines to form the river, so the graduates of our Aca demy have gore out to mix and mingle with the stream of humanity. Some of them achieved national distinction and their names will be honored so long as the history of our country endures, and the great majority although to fame all unknown have yet played no unimpor tant part in shaping, influencing and directing the current of public opinion in the communities in which they lived. Carrying out w ith them from these walls into active life the high moral principles inculcated herein, they have helped form the warp and woof of that excellent moral fiber of "which American, and ee pccially New England character is made. But it is not alone in the peaceful walks of lile, in the days of personal and na tional prosperity that their influence has been felt. In the crisis of the nations life, when two great antagonistic moral ideas met in deadly conflict, and it seem ed for a time as though the" onward march of civilization would be checked and turned backward and the bright sun of liberty set in blood never to rise again, the granite monument on yonder hill, and the monuments on a thousand hill tops throughout the country which re cord the names of the nation's patriots are silent bnt eloquent and unimpench able witnesses to the loyalty and devo tion with which the graduates of our academy in common with many hun dreds of thousands of their fellow citi zens responded to their country's call, in the hour of its supreme need, when the blood of heroes was spilled like water, and tbe very life of the nation hung tumbling in the balance. When' this school was organized our country lay like a lringe along the Atlantic sea coast, and with the English possessions to the north of it, and the French and Spanish possessions to the south of it, it was westward, and neces sarily westward that the . course of empire steadily and not slowly took its way and the broad a-gis of the constitu tion threw its protecting shield over all our citizens until now over all the land where our flag floats, with two or three exceptions only and they will soon be added to the shining list, from the furthest eastern boundary of the republic where the land of liberty is first kissed by the rays of the rising sun to its utter most western extremity where it sinks into the Pacific sea, we behold one unbroken chain of sovereign states inhabited by a law-abiding, liberty-loving people, animated by a common purpose, with common aims, common objects and a common destiny, keeping step to the music of the Union, marching onward to the conquest of nature, and Bowing broad cast the seeds of duty and devotion to country which shall ripen in a purer patriotism and in a higher civil ization to come. Among the pioneers who blazed the trails, who braved the dangers of Indian warfare and all the perils of a then unknown land to rescue those vast domains from solitude or savagery and hand them on to civiliza tion and to freedom and among those who followed after to help lay broad and deep the foundations of great commonwealths which have added so much to the population, wealth and glory of the country, the graduates of our Academy have played an honorable and no inconsiderable part. Our country now spans the continent, there is no more Irontier to tempt the daring and adventurous, but American enterprise is no longer confined within territorial bounds. The nation has at last burst its swaddling clothes of infancy, is stretching itself like a young giant just conscious of its strength, and is prepar ing to fulfil its manifest higher destiny. By a series of most brilliant exploits during the late war both on sea and land our country challenged the respect and admiration of the world, and took its rightful place in the front rank of the nations of tbe earth and ,the hero par excellence cf the moBt important battle of the war, a battle which is destined to make an epoch in history, and is worthy of being classed among the few decisive battles of the world, is a son of Vermont, the brave, modest, diplomatic, level headed Dewey. But wherever, and whenever, in the interest of hnmanity and of civilization, American arms shall exhibit American valor, and introduce American principles of government, it will be found in every instance that they have been preceded bv the representatives of the Prince of Peace. Standing on either shore looking over the waste of waters, listening to the cry for help and obedient to the Divine command to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, many grad uates ot our Academy are included in that noble and self-sacrificing band of men and women, who have left home, friends, country, and all except devotion to duty, which life holds dear, often at great personal peril, to carry the light of jife to those who dwell in darkness. The 'influences which have gone out from our Academy like the ripples when tbe waters will go on ever widening and extending until they break in a gentle murmur upon tbe distant shores of eternity, and only when the accounts are closed out and the books balanced in the Day of Judgment will it be known in its fullest extent, the influence which the Caledonia County Grammar School has exerted during the century and more of its existance, upon the education, the civili zation, and the. Christianity of our country, and of the world. Our thoughts, however, on these occa sions of reunion shall not be altogether retrospective, but inspired by the success ot tbe school in the past, we should look forward with equal hope to its future. It is true conditions have changed. Competition is much keener now than then when the school started or than it has been during the greater portion of its history, and vet our Academy pos sesses some advantages which, so far as 1 know, are not found to an equal extent elsewhere. The developement of the material resources of this state and of adjoining states along material lines, has side-tracked this town; the railroads, the modern evangels of progress along whose lines traffic moves and the restless stream of humanitv flows, pass it by on either side, and the only sound which comes to the ears of the dwellers in this quiet nook of the rush and roar of the busy world and the daily ebb and flow of its human tide is the occasional shrill whistle of the distant locomotive as it echoes and reverberates among the hills This is a land-locked haven, an ideal place for the young during the years in which their education is being acquired and their habits and characters formed. Where no distracting intrusion fnora the great throbbing world of business and of pleasure interrupts the current of their thoughts or divides attention with their studies, but where all the conditions are favorable to that concentration of mind and attention upon their studies which is so essential to the successful pursuit of Knowledge, and where, moreover and this to parents is not its least attraction the entire social and moral atmosphere which surrounds the pupil both inside aud outside the school is sweet and pure and wholesome. These advantages, to my mind, more than offset the ease of access and the other attractions which many schools located in larger centers of population and of business possess, and should surely and steadily operate to its continued and uninteriupted success in the future. But I am trespassing too much upon tbe time of others. One word of a more personal nature and I close. To many present this occasion of reunion and all its attending incidents and events serves to remind them only of tbe experiences of a greater or less length of school days passed f.ere, to many others there are added the tenderer recol lections which cluster around their birth place and early childhood days. In closing my remarks I trust it will not be considered presumptive in me in behalf of the latter to say just a word expres sive of our happiness at being permitted once again, and especially at this time, to revisit the scenes of our childhood days, where every feature in the beauti ful face of nature as we again look upon it recalls hallowed associations and revives the teuderest recollections, where the pleasant smile of recognition, the friendly word of greeting and the cordial grasp of the hand by old-time friends warm and rejuvenate the heart, where sleep the honored remains of loved ones gone before, and where other loved ones to our unspeakable happiness still linger with us, with loving hearts and tender greetings to bid the wanderers welcome home. LEWIS II. HEADER'S ADDRESS. Two significant events of this century are coeval with the active life of this Academy. The one occurring at the close of the Napoleonia Wars in Europe, and the other so recent as to be but a matter of newspaper history; yet both are marks of progress and full of suggestions as to future problems. The Vienna Congress and the Holy Alliance marked a desire to restore the rigid conditions of the past in Europe aud to break up the reforms that followed the footsteps of Napoleon. While these events stirred Europe, popu lar government was struggling for exis tance on the shores of America. This Academy, with similar institutions, trained the men who made popular gov ernment a success. These men from the homrs and schools of America met their problems and gave them heroic treat ment. They made our land in reality the home ol the free, they made it possi ble for all the people to participate in the affairs of government; they preserved that government when its overthrow was threatened by secession and internal discord. The Treaty of Paris of 1898, just at the close of our century, marks the close of a barbarous war that had long been waged almost at our doors, and to which from mo.ives of humanity, not of conquest, we called a halt. The events of Manila and Santiago ushered our countv into the group ot world pow ers; and here we stand to-day, confronted with new responsibilities, and serious problems to solve that the civilization we represent may not take a backward step. Where shall the men be found and what shall be the training to meet the requirements suecesslully ? As in the past, we must look to the homes and the institutions among the hills. The train ing that made us worthy to be a world power may be safely relied upon to en able us to preserve our liberties under the new conditions. The varying fashions of the hour may rute out or rule in this "fad" or thatin the schools of our large towns and cities; but the constant factor, the character building, must re main. Tbe lessons ot the father in estab lishing and preserving our liberties are fundamental for us to-day. Such are some of the lessons of the hour, and our inference is that the mission of tbe old time academy is not ended, and that the principle it taught are not yet "old fashioned." May we not reasonably rely in the future upon that training that made it possible for us to take Manila and Santiago. "While all the world wondered?" Who shall say that the mission of the Academies and the training of our Amer ican homes are no longer ot avail ? Army Officers called "Mr." People who are not versed in matters of army usage often ask why certain army officers are addressed as "Mister," and not by their titles. To the men who enter the service from West Point the custom is well understood, because they know that, no matter how much author ity they may have, or how gay their unitorms may be, they are simply "mis ters" until they wear two bars on their shoulder straps. A recent occurrence in the Army Building illustrated the matter. A man who had been a field officer in the volunteer service in the war with Spain had been appointed to a Lieutenancy in the new volunteer army, and called at one of the offices at the headquarters on a matter of business, there the omcer in charge presented him to a United States Army officer, says the New York Tribune. "Major Blank, allow me to present Mr. Smith Mr. Smith, Major Blank." The volunteer officer hinted in a modest way, when the Major had with drawn, that it might have been well to let the fact be known that he also was an army officer. "Oh, that's all right," said the officer who had acted as host, "everybody is mister until he is Cap tain." Even in service the first and second Lieutenants are addressed "mister" by officers of higher rank. The custom is so general that it is not unusual for Lieutenants in the regular service to have their visiting cards with the "Mr," prehxed. Tbe officer in the regular service also shows a preference for civilian's dress, which the volunteer officer does not al ways share. When not on duty, at home on leave or on his way to post the regular officer usually wears no part of bis uniform, and prefers to appear as an ordinary citizen. An Elephant's Choice If there is anything in the world that an elephant loves better than a peanut it is an orange, and if any boy who reads this wishes, when be goes to tbe circus, to give the massive creature an especial treat instead of paying five cents for a bag of peanuts to put in the elephant's trunk, let him purchase for the same money, one good-sized orange and pre- sent that to the small-eyed, flat-eared monster. A number of vears ago, in a book which was culled "Leaves from the Life of a Special Correspondent," Mr.O'Shea, the author of the book, gave the follow ing description of an adventure he had with a herd of elephants, baid he: "A young friend asked me once to show him some elephants, and I took him along with me, having first borrowed an apron and filled it with oranges. This he was to carry while accompanying me in the stable, but the moment we reached the door the herd set up such a trumpet ing they had sented the fruit that he dropped the apron and its contents and scuttled off like a scared rabbit. There were eight elephants, and when I picked up the oranges I found that I had 25. I walked deliberately along the line, giv ing one to each. "When I got to tbe extremity of the narrow stable I turned, and was about to begin the distribution again, when I suddenly reflected that if elephant No. 7 in the row saw me give two oranges in succession to No. 8 he might imagine be was being cheated and give me a smack with his trunk that is where the ele- pliant falls short of the human being so I went to the door and began at the be-' ginning as before. "Thrice I went along the line, and then I was in a fix. I had one orange left, and I had to get back to tbe door. Everyelephant in the herd had its greedy gaze focused on that orange. It was as much as my life was worth to give it to any one of them. What was I to do ? I held it up conspicuously, coollv peeled it and ate it myself. It was most amusing to notice the way those elephants nudg ed each other and shook their ponderous sides. Tbey thoroughly entered into the humor of the thing." Greater than Niagara, The falls ou the Godavary cannot by any stretch of the imagination be de scribed as "larger and more magnificent than Niagara." So far as my memory serves me, I should say they are not above forty feet high, if as much. You evidently intended to refer to the Ger soppa Falls on the Sharavatti River in South Kanara. Sir William Hunter says: "These falls surpass any other waterfall in India, and, in the combined attributes of height, volume of water, and picturesque situation, have few rivals in the world." The river is two hundred and fifty yards wide, the clear fall is eight hundred and thirty feet. The Gersoppa Falls, in the rainy season, are incomparably finer than Niagara in every respect; the roar of the falling wafers is simply terrific, the whole earth shakes, and the thunder is so great that it completely drowns the human voice. When I visited Niagara and told my American friends about Gersoppa they replied with polite incredulitv: "We never heard of Gersoppa." I replied: "Make your minds easy, the people at Gersoppa have never heard of Niagara." If Niagara could see Gersoppa she would wrap her head in a mist. Letter to London Spectator. "Now, Sammy," began the teacher, "I want you to tell me in which battle Lord Nelson was killed." Sammy was in despair, hut he must prove himself equal to the emergency. "Did you say Lord Nelson ?" he asked cautiously. "Yes." "Which battle?" "Yes." In which battle was he killed?" "Wal," said Sammy, with apparent surprise at Buch an easy question. "I 'specs it must er been his last." Lon don Spare Moments. "T'is strange but true, that both white and black peppers are red when they are green. Salt-rising Bread. Some dyspeptics think salt-rising bread much more digestible than bread made up with other kinds of veast. It is the favorite bread all through the valley of Virginia ana Maryland. The following recipe is given by a Virginia house keeper: Pour half a pint of boiling water on two tablespoonfuls of cornmeal and add pinch ot salt. Let this stand ten minutes, then stir in two tablespoonfuls of flour and set it in a warm place to rise overnight. In the morning add half a pint of fresh sweet milk or warm water and flour enough to make the yeast smooth. Then put it in a kettle of water hot enough to bear tbe hand in. V hen this rises pour it into a batter which has been made of two ciuarts of the morning's milk, scalded. Be careful not to scald the flour by mixing when the milk is too warm. Beat this well and set it to rise again in a warm place, which it will do in twenty-five or thirty minutes if managed right.' Be careful that the place is not too hot. Now put in flour enough to make a stiff batter that cannot be stirred with a spoon, then pour it out on a molding- ooara which has been well covered with sifted flour, and add a piece of lard the size of a large apple and mix it well with the dough. Work it well, and after dividing it up in small loaves put them in well-greased pans and set them in a warm place to rise again. When risen sufficiently bake as quickly as possible. When done brush over with a little melt ed butter to prevent the crust from har dening. Housekeeping Matters. Unbleached canton flannel makes the best dish cloths. Ammonia and water is an excellent antidote for mosquito bites. Washing the hands in bran water will whiten and soften the skin. Flannel should be ironed as little as possible and with a moderately hot iron. Vegetable soups are nourishing and not as heating as those made from meat stock. Plantain leaves applied to bee stings or mosquito bites will remove the in flammation. Nothing will improve the complexion and give grace to movement better than housework. A menu for each meal, made out week ly, will save much anxiety as to each day s meals. Water can be kept ice cold bv putting it in a common earthenware pitcher wrapped with wet flannel. If grease is spilled on the floor cold water poured on it at once will prevent the spot trom soaking into the wood. Ice can be kept for several days by wrapping it first in old blankets and then in several thicknesses of newspaper, Those who sigh for cool resting places in warm weather and yet can not give up their sott beds, can gain what thev want by laying heavy white awning canvas under the sheets. If a clean cloth wrung out of water to which half a teaspoonful of ammonia has been added is used to wipe off a carpet recently swept, it will remove the dusty look and brighten the colors. The starch should be washed out of all colored or thin dresses belonging to the children belore they are put a way. Thev will last twice as long if put away rough-dried as they will if put away ready for next summer's use. Specialists in housekeeping matters aver that for rubbing smooth surfaces, such as highly polished wood or metal, a flannel cloth is less likely to scratch than even a chamois. Silkoline is also excellent for use about a handsome piece of wooden furniture. Before dusting a room enough time should be allowed to elapse for the dust to settle, and then it should be taken up with a soft cloth, not merely displaced with a feather duster. The latter may be used to dislodge particles beyond the reach of the hand, but it is not practic able for any ether purpose. If the tea steeper contains any cold tea and soaked leaves, no matter how small an amount, do not throw the mixture away, but pour it every few days into the cut-glass water bottles. Shake the bottles well and then thoroughly rinse them in clean water. Treated "in this manner, the inside of the bottles will re main bright and clear.

Mbs. G. H. Chappkll, Grant Pabk, III. " For several years my health waa miserable. I suffered the most dread ful pains, and was almost on the verge of insanity. I consulted one of the best physicians in New York, and he pronounced my disease a fibroid tumor, advising an operation without delay, saying that it was my only chance for life. Other doctors prescribed strong and violent medicine, and one said I was incurable, another told me my only salvation was galvanic batteries, which I tried, but nothing relieved me. One day a friend called and begged me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I began its use and took several bottles. From the very first bottle there was a wonderful change for the better. The tumor has disap peared entirely and my old spirits have returned. I heartily recommend your medicine to all suffering women." Mrs. Van Cleft, 410 Saunders Am, Jersey City Heights, N. J. FOR SALE.

'This is the season of the year in which to set out bulbs. Prepare the ground for them before they are received by hav ing it dug up to a depth of at least a toot-a toot and a hall is better ana worked over until it is mellow," writes Eben E. Rexford in the September Ladies' Home Journal. "Mix with it a liberal quantity of old, rotten manure from the cowyard, or, if this is not ob tainable, use bonemeal in the proportions of one pound to a square yard of soil. It the soil is naturally heavy, it is well to add considerable sand to make it lighter and more porous. Plant the bulbs as soon as possible after they are received, as they are greatly injured by exposure to the air., Set tulips and hyacinths six inches deep, smaller bulbs from four to five inches. All bulbs should be placed fiveorsix inches apart, and each kind kept by itself." CONSUMPTION. The germs of consumption are every where. You may breathe them in with the air, drink them with water, eat them with your food.
