Theodore Tilton, per announcement, deliv- ered his lecture, "The Problem of Life," at tlic Opera House, to a good audience, on Thursday evening last. The lecture Is generally regarded as a brilliant effort aud characteristic of the man. Eloquent, brilliant in a literary point of view, eccentric both in composition and in delivery, it made a profound Impression on tho audience. He is evidently deeply convinced of tho truth of his theories, and aims to us deeply Impress upon his hearers the truth as he sees It. The necessity of marfkind, he believes, Is a higher standard of morals, and the solution of this problem Is only through tho Individual character. While there arc. few great men, few wealthy men, yet the du ty of each individual is the highest cultivation of his own character tho making the most or mm self that his nature will allow, and thus, through the Individual, to raise the race nearer and near- er to ultimate perfection. Co-operative Insurance. Editor of the Free Trailer It was suggested at our anuual election, lasl week, that since the Rutland and Manilas Farmers' Mutual Fire In surance Company (being the Hrst of the kind In this county, and perhaps, also, in the state) has been in successful operation for five years, It might be of sufficient public Interest to warrant you in publishing the following short statement of progress and condition : The company w as chartered Dec. aoth, IS?), and began insuring property Jan. 'A'lth, 1873. At the close of the year there were reported slxty- j four members, and an ugggregate of one hun dred and twenty-seven thousand dollars insured. As stated, the company has been doing business for five years, and now numbers more than one hundred members, w hile the amount Insured has gradually risen to two hundred and thirty-seven thousund dollars, (237,000,) as reported on the lilst day of December last. Thus far tho compa ny has beeu remarkably fortunate, having sus tained mi losses, and the members have been ee. curely insured at a merely nominal coBtof a little loss than otic dollar and twenty-rive cents ou each on each one thousand dollars for live years. The following officers were uonniinously re-elected: J. R. Shaver, Pres.; .1. T. Nichol, Trcas.; E. P. Bosworth, See, ; A. C. Barnes aud A. B. Good rich, Surveyors. It will be readily understood that these olllcors draw no princely salaries, and no one, not even a Yankee, would guess that much of the necessary business is done almost gratuitously. However the case may be, none of them are likely to buy votes for the sake of re taining the office. Very respectfully, Marseilles, Jan. 14, 1ST. E. P. Boswokth. LOCAL MATTERS.

Kiiitok: Having- read hi vour paper ro norts of the remarkable cures of catarrh, I am induced to tell "what I know about catarrh."! aud I fancy the "snuff" and " inhaling-tutie " makers (mere dollar grabbers) wi.id be elad if they could emblazon a similar cure In the papers. for JO years i stiiiereu wun catarrn. ine nasal passages became completely closed. " snult," Must. ' "uslies, "innaiing-lttiies" ami "stiehs ' wouldn't work, though at Intervals I would sniff up the BO-ca!leu cuuirrn smut, until l ticcatne a valuable tester for such medicine. I gradually srrcw worse, und no one can know Imw much I suffered or what a miserable being I was. Mv head ached over mv eves so that I was confined to my bed for many successive days, suffering the most intense pain, which at one time lasted continuously for ItiS hours. All sense of smell and taste gone, slirlil ami Hearing impaired, noay shrunken and weakened, nervous system shat tered, and constitution broken, und I was hawk inir and Isnittinir seven-eighths of the time. I prayed for death to relieve me of my suffering A favorable notice in your paper of Dr. Sage't Catarrh Remedy induced me to purchase a uuck age, and use it with Dr. Pierce s Nasal Douche, which applies the remedy by hydrostatic pressure. the only wav compatible with common ncnse, Well, Mr. Fxlitor, it did not cure me in three fourths of a second, nor in one hour or mouth but in less than eight minutes I was relieved, and in three months entirely cured, and have re mained so for over sixteen months. While usinir the Catarrh Remedy 1 used Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery to purify my blood and strengthen my stomach. I also kept mv liver active and bowels regular by the use of his rleas ant Purgative Pellets. If mv experience will in duce other sufferers to seek tho same means of relief, this letter will have answered its purpose. Yours truly, S. 1). Kkmick.

McDougall, and tho reading by Mr. Geo. W. Sweet of "Obcd, the Skipper," which wus done in very pleasant style.

O., at Willis's Hall, to begin, as the Invitations read, ut 8 o'clock. This is go ing to be the event of the month, at least. A large number of invitations have been issued several hundred and a great attendance is ex pected. To make a creditable oppearanco the boys have been put through a severe course of drilling, und wc venture to say few companies of its age can surpass our Guards, though specta tors must not expect to sec (on a wuxed floor es pecially) the degree of perfection exhibited by companies whose training has extended over a number of years. The utmost pains have been and will be taken to make the whole evening as enjoyable as possible, and If those who have re ceived invitations attend, it will be their own weakness if they do not enjoy themselves. And aside from the intrinsic attractions of the enter tainment, which ought to draw all lovers of amusement, tho guards should receive the hearty patronage of their Invited guests as a matter of encouragement, this being the tlrst and only time they hove called for assistance, and surely they will be giving the money's worth. I desire to call attention to the fact that our military company, which was lately organized under the laws of the state, is an important insti tutioM in this city and well deserves from our people the encouragement und assistance neces sary to make it a complete success. Tho com pany Is composed of a large number of the best young men of the city and is commanded and drilled by officers of high character and rare ability. The expenses attending the organiza tion of the company have been ((iiito large- amounting to about live hundred dollars all of which have been borne by the company, they never having solicited any aid from the public The service which the young gentlemen com prising this company are performing under the law is purely a patriotic service, and they should not be left to bear all of the expenses alone, w hile growth and prosperity of the compuny is a subject which should enlist the sympathy of all. An exhibition drill will be held on the 'Jlth Inst, and u very large number of invitations have been Issued. This w ill furnish an opportunity to persons who have been Invited to contribute w hat they may think proper to aid this enter prise, und I trust then-fore that all persons in vited, with their presence and moiicv, will en. courage and aid a company that reflects credit upon the city and in which we all find u Just pride.
