Bead Track.
St. Johnsbury had a fortunate escape
from the effects of high water Sunday,
the only damage being a slight washout
on the road to the Hatchery and some
damage to small culverts. The north
part of the county had a heavy storm,
but the severest was in the Lamoille
valley in the towns of Hardwick, Wol
cott and Elmore. In the two latter
towns bridges and highways were swept
out of existence and it will cost each
town at least $10,000 to repair their
loss. With Elmore's small population it
will be necessary for them to get aid
from the new Legislature. From 5
o'clock Saturday night until 7 o'clock
Sunday morning 4.5 inches of rain fell in
the Lamoille valley and the Lamoille
river became a raging torrent sweeping
away bridges, and washing out the
Lake road track between Hardwick and
Hyde Park and delaying traffic for 48
The passengers on the mail train
going west Saturday had an experience
they do not care to repeat. The train
left St. Johnsbury all right, but before
Walden was reached Engineer Reed said
it grew as dark as night and it seemed
at 6 o'clock as if he was running his
train through a tunnel. Tbe50passen-
gers knew there was trouble ahead and
they soon struck the high water and had
the rather unpleasant experience ol
riding on a track covered with water.
After leaving Hardwick the storm was
at its height and culverts were filled
and the river a mountain torrent. The
last culvert the train crossed the trucks
of the rear car sank so perceptibly that
the passengers were alarmed and the
train was stopped. The culvert was
soon washed out and as there was a
big washout ahead the train was
stalled over Sunday between Hardwick
and Wolcott. Some of the passengers
braved the storm and reached various
destinations, but the most of them
stayed in the train and Sunday morning
the good people of Wolcott brought
mem provisions wnich were gladly re
ceived. Sunday afternoon a work train
succeeded in reaching them and brought
the passengers to Hardwick and Mon
day morning they came to St. Johnsbury.
The railroad had a large force of men at
work Sunday and Monday, employing
everybody in the immediate vicinity to
help the section men and their panes.
and by Monday night the track was
blocked up and they handled the Fourth
of July traffic with only slight delays.
The mail train from Swanton did not
fare so hard as they knew of the condi
tion of the track and turned around at
Cambridge Junction and went back to
Swanton Saturday night.
Old residents here say that they never
saw the Passurapsic river so high in
midsummer as it was Sunday morning
after the heavy showers, but no damage
was done except to flood some meadows.

manual training should be tauerht in public schools. It is true that many of our best
citizens come from the ranks of the workers. Many of our modern factories are
practical manual training schools where the "gospel of work" is exclusively and
agreeably taught to apt pupils. In this pleasant kind of factory voune oeonle learn
to " do things " and earn their own living.
The visitor to the factory of Smith & Son, at White River Junction, can not fail
to be impressed with the atmosphere of good cheer, coupled with attention to busi
ness, which prevails. There are no floor-walkers, no inquisitive "supers." They
are not needed. The young people find pleasure in their work.
