Veazey, which occurred by drowning on Lake Caspian, Greensboro, on the 16th. Brother Venzev was Past Com mander of the Alabama and Tennessee Division, a clergyman, and a resident of St. Johnsbury. He bad a host of friends who will mourn hit death." Welleiley Benefit. "All ball to the College Beautiful, All hall to the Welleelev blue I " is the sentiment which will pervade the entertainment given Thursday evening of this week in the Academy ball to swell Vermont's contribution to the Wellesley College Endowment Fund. It is expected that Miss Ada L. How ard, the first president of Wellesley, will be present. Everyone will be most cordially welcomed and isearnestly asked to come to help in this widespread move ment of removing the debt from Welles ley. After a social hour in which views of the college, candy made by Wellesley re ceipts, copies of the receipts in decorated covers, and ice cream will be sold, there will be an entertainment consisting of college stories as told by Miss Mabel A. Carpenter and illustrated by tableaux, college songs, and the inimitable "yell." The admission will be fifteen cents. Those who have known Wellesley slightly and from an outside standpoint have been under the impression that she has been amply provided for and have turned their gifts in other directions in ignorance of her debt. Within a short time however, generous gifts have pro vided a new chapel, two new domitories, and an observatory, yet the old debt re mains. The history of the attempt of the Alumna; and former students to raise the amount of indebtedness, $93, 135 65 and a permanent endowment fund of a hun dred thousand dollars is short but strik ing. A general appeal was made at com mencement time 1S98. The report comes to us this week that the total amount already given or pledged is approximate ly $63,64-6.85. At this time Vermont's gift is about $425. On Oct. 3 the new president oi ucnesicy, Miss Caroline Hazard, is to be inaugu rated. It is a wish near the hearts of all former students that at that time Welles ley may at least be free from debt. Will you not aid in tins great enort r New Form of Postal Money Order. The postoffice department has adopted new form of domestic money order which will be introduced gradually, or as sup plies of the old form become exhausted, at the various postoffices throughout the country, after the 4th of .September. The new form is somewhat smaller than the order now in use. Its dimen sions are about those ot the ordinary bank draft. It has two adjuncts the advice, or notification to be sent by the issuing to the paying postmaster, is a reproduction of the order through the use of carbonized paper (the manifold process) and a receipt for the amount, to be furnished by the issuing postmaster to the remitter. On the back of the order separate space lias been provided for the stamps of banks through which it may be passed for collection. In color the order is blue, Having a light blue ground, with fine, closelv nterlaced, tinted lines of geometrical lathe work of darker shade. It is expected that oh or about January 1 next the tee charged lor orders will be materially reduced. East St. Johnsbury. Mrs. E. Hovey has returned "to her home in Chicago.

Travels In a Locomobile. William E. Hicks of Lowell, Mass., is visiting his uncle, James P. Hicks, and is traveling through New England in a locomobile. As this was the first ap pearance in St. Johnsbury of this kind of a horseless carriage it attracted much attention on all sides. The motive power is furnished by an engine and boiler underneath the seat of the carriage and the fuel is gasolene. This makes the car riage different from an automobile which obtains its motive power from electricity. Mr.Hickscame from Boston to Littleton in 18 hours and on country roads averages about 18 miles an hour. The horseless carriage is soon to supersede horses in many ways and after the first cost the expense of running them is a mere trifle. The cost of a locomobile like Mr. Hicks' is $750 and the firm that make them have all the orders they can fill lor two years ahead. The Liquor Nuisance Cases, The St. Tohnsbury liquor nuisance cases in chancery are practically disposed of so far as the county court is concerned After hearing thereon the demurrer in each case was overruled ; motion for jury trial was denied; motion to have benefit of demurrer reserved and answer brought for hearing denied. Judge Thompson further proceeds by decretal order to adjudge that common nuisances have been kept in every case and perpetually enjoius the parties from keeping, main taining or suffering to be maintained in tne ouiidings described bucq nuisance. The state recovers costs of property owners. The cases will most ot them be taken to the supreme court by appeal, to settle, among otner questions, tne constitutionality of the law under which these oroceedines were instituted. A final decision will occur. at or soon after the October term. At Summervllle. Mrs. Esther Lowe of Otsego, Mich., is visiting at J. H. Moore's. Mrs. Lucian Richardson of Wolcott visited at E. L.

Preston of Cabot notified Sherriff Sulloway last week Monday night that his horse had been stolen from the pas ture and that a harness was gone. Mr. Preston suspected Jeremiah Willcy who had recently left Cabot for parts un known. Mr. Sulloway communicated with the deputies in this vicinity and within 24 hours located the thief at Grovetou and found that the horse had been sold for $18 to a Lancaster livery stable keeper. The thief turned out to be Mr. Willey who had previously served a term in state prison for horse stealing. Mr. Willcy is now in the Cherry street jail and will be taken to Washington county at the next term of court. Supt. Dempsey. Clarence II. Dempsey of West Fitch- burg, Mass., the new superintendent of schools, arrived in town Thursday, and is pleasantly located in Murray Cliffords house at 18 Main Street. Mr. Dempsev has been filling a simular position at Valley Falls, R. I., and his resignation there caused many regrets. When his resignation was presented there a Provi dence paper says: Mr. Hindley spoke in glowing terms of the conscientious work done by Mr. Dempsey and of his regret that he had seen fit to.tender his resignation. All of the.committee expressed their regret at Mr. Dempsey's departure and wished him continued success in his new sphere." Mr. Dempsey will be cordiallv welcom ed to St. Johnsburv and all wish him success in the management of our schools. A Veteran in the Service.
