Mr. Carpenter was born on his father's farm in Chelsea, Sept. 5, 1830, and was educated at the public schools of his native town. When about 25 years old he came to St. Johnsbury and entered the employ of E. & T. Fairbanks & Co. He was given a place in the lumber yard and very soon was made its foreman and was in the employ of the corporation 35 years, b or 17 years he was one of the selectmen of this town and was better acquainted with the manage mentoftown affairs than any other citizen. He was also the real manager of the af fairs of the St. Johnsbury cemetery, being secretary and treasurer of this corpor ation for 22 years. Hiscon servative business methods and his honesty were every where recognized and he had a great many estates to settle and was also guar dian of several minors. Mr. r. Carpenter was an active member of the North church and one of its most faithful attendants. For many years he was a deacon in tbe church and in the vari ous committees ofthechurch he was always a most valu able member. His record for regular attendance at the Sunday services and the weekly prayer meeting was not surpassed by any other person, and it is probably not generally known that for ten consecutive years he never missed a session of tbe Sunday school. He was especially interested in this work and had a class of young men for a number of years. The immediate cause of bis death was brights disease, though he had been fail ing in health for two years and had not been able to get out for over a year. During his last illness be was a great sufferer, but bore his pain with a rare Christian spiiit. His first wife was Mary Durkee, daughter of the late Dea con Durkee. They had three children, all of whom died in infancy. His second wife was Joanna Warden, of Bradford, who died about five years ago. His third wife, who was Alice Cowdcry, of St. Johnsbury, survives him. Mr. Carpenter was not a brilliant man, but he was one of those reliable, kind-hearted, God fear ing men who are the mainstay of the community in which they liveand in his death St. Johnsbury has lost a good citi zen and an honest man. The funeral will be held at the house this alternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Dr. Edward T. Fairbanks. Dickinson. The older residents of St. Johnsbury and especially those of Lyndon were grieved to hear of the death of Mrs. Celia Dickinson, which occurred at her home in Jersey City on Sept. 29. She had been in failing health for several months and her death came as a release from the fail ing powers of a ripe old age. Mrs. Celia Goss, wife of tbe late William L. Dickinson, was born in St. Johnsbury, Dec. 25, 1816, and was the daughter of Philip Goss. In early life the family moved to Lyndon and she was educated at Lyndon Academy along with a num ber of other people whose descendants are now living in that place. On Aug. 28, 1843, she married William Leverett Dickinson of St. Johnsbury, the mar riage being performed at Lyndon by Rev. Rufus Case. Some years after their mar riage they moved to Jersey City where for about 20 years Mr. Dickinson was superintendent ot the schools of that city and the county and was one of tbe lead ing educators of the state at the time of his death, which occurred about 15 years aco. Mrs. Dickinson is a sister-in-law of George Ide of Lyndon and leaves two sons, William Henry, a member of the New York stock exchange, and Dr. Gor don K., one of the leading physicians and surgeons ot Jersey City. I he inter ment wus at Greenwich cemetery, Brook lyn. Mrs. Dickinson was an active member of the Dutch Relormed church and a lady of many lovely traits of character She visited her sister in Lyndon as long as her sister lived and several summers since the death of Mrs. George Ide Btie has come to St. Johnsbury where she has made many friends. Remarkably intc gent, full o good works and always of a cheery disposition she has left a host ol Iricnds to mourn her death. St. Johnsbury Center. Miss Grace Woodbury, of Bartlett, N H., has been visiting friends here. The Ladies' Sewing Circle, of the Uni ver8ahst church meet with Mrs. N. M. Shorey on Friday afternoon. Rev.

Hobart Passes Away After a Oal lant Fight for Life. Vice President Hobart died at his home at Peterson, N. J., yesterday forenoon at the age of 55 years. He has been in very poor health for several months but for the last few weeks has seemed stronger. Since his inauguration in 1897 he has made an able and efficient presiding offi cer and a most able vice president. He was a lawyer by profession and has always been eminently and distinctively man of affairs and of distinguished business ability. During his life time he has been a member of both houses of the New Jersey legislature, a member of the state republican committee and of the national republican committee, a direc tor in 50 cr 60 corporations and legal advisor for manv of them. Daughters of Vermont Club. The gratifying fact that the influence of the traveling library movement by the Vermont Federation is extensive, will be seen by the following extract from the Boston Globe of Nov. 17. 'The Daughters of Vermont club had a pleasant meeting at the Vendome yester day afternoon, at which Miss Helen M. Winslow, the president, presided. A very interesting letter was read by the 'corresponding secretary from Mrs. Emily A. Miliken, who is 81 years old, and perhaps the oldest club member. Mrs. Miliken has seldom been absent from a meeting since the club was or ganized and she regretted that owing to ber removal to saco, Me., she would be unable to attend the meetings this season, it was also very interesting to the club members to hear that she had joined a class to study Spanish this win ter as the only entertainment she antici pated outside her church work. Mrs. Miliken was born in Montpelier. The secretary also gave a very inter esting report pf the Vermont federation which is doing excellent work in tbe traveling library movement. At the sug gestion of the Vermont federation it was proposed and alterward voted that the Daughters of Vermont shall contribute one traveling library to be used in the small towns where there are no libraries and where good reading matter is sure to be appreciated. The general discussion brought out some very interesting tnets concerning the need of these traveling libraries in the rural districts. It was stated that of the 246 towns in Vermont 107 have no libraries. It was also voted that the club shall contribute toward the Dewey monument and each member is invited to contribute to this lund. Mrs. Shreve will take charge of the fund. At the conclusion of the business meet ing there was a social hour and refresh ments were served. Self-Denial Week. The close approach of the Army's Self. Denial week announced in our column's the past two weeks, is already in evi dence. Every Salvationist is putting into practical effort the plans made for the success ol the effort. The current issue of the War Cry and the special ap peals already scattered far and near give a good idea of the high hopes they entertain toward the raising of a total exceeding that of any other previous year. Many of the Salvationists have pledged themselves to live on bread and water and to the denial of what must be out of their own slender resources for the Sell-Denial week and the aims which it is intended. Twenty seven thousand poor people were helped last winter, free, to good clothing etc., while many times that number were helped in lesser degrees; tne Army tins a sneiters lor poor men, children's shelters, etc. These figures arc lor this country alone and are chiefly the results ol the Sell-Denial effort. Donations lor this worthy cause will be gratefully received by the officer in charge ol the local corps, whose address is i.apt. is. Mcwaney, Salvation Army, at. jonnsuury, vt. State Orange Coming. Theexrcutive committee of the state Grange, F. H. Spauldingof West Brattle boro, Hon. Alpha Meoser of Rochester, W. L. Park of Lyndon, I. T. Story of Essex and the State Master, C. J. Bell of Wdlden, and State Secretary A. A. Priest of Randolph, ex officio, has fixed upon Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Dec. 13, 14 and 15, as the time for their next meeting which is to be held here by invitation of the County Grange and our. local Board of Trade. Instead of the customary public session this year a banquet will be held to which outsiders will be invited. Among the speakers already engaged are Governor E. C. Smith, Lieut. -Gov. Henry C. Bates, N. J. Bachelder of Concord, N. H., master of the New Hampshire State Grange; State Superintendent Mason S. Stone, Mrs. R. B. Galusha of Jericho, wife of the state lecturer, and Mrs. C. F. Smith of Morrisville. The programme . has not yet been arranged in detail, but promises to be one of the most instructive of recent years. It is several years since St. Johnsbury has been honored with this gathering, which includes many of the representative farmers of the state, and the Grangers may be sure of a cordial welcome. It is expected that there will be from three to four hundred people in attendance and among them some of the most practical farmers in the All railronrls offer reduced rates. state. Interdenominational Comity. The first meetiug of the Interdenomina tional Comity Committee for Vermont was held here last Wednesday. During the current year the matter of a closer relationship and understanding between the various religious denomina tions of tbe state has been discussed and the following denominations have acted upon the matter at their regular annual conventions; Baptist, Free Baptist, Methodist, Christian and Congregation al, and in each case have appointed a committee of five, altogether forming a board of commissioners. The ideal work to be accomplished is when in any local ity there are two, three or four weak, struggling churches, depending in great measure upon outside aid Irom mission ary societies or otherwise for their sup- . port, the larger or stronger church shall survive and the others retire sooner or later Irom the held in the hope that in many cases tbe result will be one strong and independent church. The commis sion is to consider such cases and recom mend in the premises. There were present at this hrst meet ing from the Baptist church, Rev. A. C. flussey ol St. Johnsbury and Rev. L. D. R. Meacham ol PassumpMc; Methodist, Rev. J O. Sherburne, St. Johnsbury, Rev. W. R Davenport, Burlington; Free Bap tist, Rev. E. Blake, South Struffonl, Rev. Bovd, West Tophnm. Rev. B. F.
