The Calcdonian suggests that a guardlan be appointed over A. J Willard. To an outslder, It has seemcd as though Willard had about as sound a head as any one ln St. Johnsbury, acd had shown good reasons for his actlons. Ocn Tunbridge corrcspondent informa ua that complalnt haa been mado to State'a At torney J. K. Darllng, of Eaet Corinth, of the outrnge mentloned in tho Watchman of last week, and tho matter will doubtless be m vestlgated. It la rumored that Harria of the Index does not find his effotts to reform St. Johnsbury very heartlly reciprocated, and that he is soon to retire from the publishing business.

The Poultney Journal tells n serious Btory about J. M. Ilaven, the proprletor of the Bates hnnse at Rutland, claiming that he has been largely over-Issueing Rutland railroad stock, a blg proportion of whlch he sold to Charles Clemont, who is said to have bought for the purpose of oustlng Jolin B.

Thua does the RtjmlAican poke tun at lts nelghbors. Aruanoementb have been made for a new fast traln between Chlcago and Boston, over tbe Grand Trunk and Central Vermont roads, by whlch tho tlme wlll be rcduced to forty honrs, three hours lesa than the present run nlng tlme.

Edwin Dillinoiiam Post, Grand Army of the Republic, Waterbury, proposes to lta fel low posta in thls and cdjoiuing towns to uuito ln a basket plcnlc nt Waterbury by way of celebratlng " the glorloua Fourth." The idea Ib warmjy recelved and wlll probably bo carrlod ont by the posta.

Speaklng and fittlng exerclses wlll bo arranged If the plcnlc comes o(T. The blackmall cnso agalnst II. W. Lovo of Rut land was concluded Saturday. One Wooloy clatmed that Lovo extorted money from hlm by threatenlng to prosecute hlm for selllng liquor. Lovo admltted taking money, but clalmed that it was slmply to establlsh a con- nectlon wlth the bnslness, whlch Wooley de nled.

Keeto waa afraid ho would lose his sltuation lf his spreo waa known, and a frlend offered to pay hla fine and coats, but the jallor had no dlscretion and a court could not be held on Sunday. Flnally Justlce Keyes offered to try hlm aa soon as the clock struck twelve. Accordlngly tho prlsoner waa brought into court at 12:01 and heavlly fined.

Professor Brown's address, whlch was recently given at Hanover, is very highly spoken of. The exerclses ou Tuesday after- noon are expected to be very imposlng and In teresting. Many distingaished gentlemen have been invited. The statue wlll be nuvelled by the Bculptor, J. Q. A. Ward, and Judgo J. A. Jameson of Chlcago will deliver the principal addresa. The appalllng consequencea of a westem cyclone should be seen to be appreciated. Inspired by a desiro to glve hia frlenda a "graphlc" if not a reallstlc conception of tho awful havoc wrought by these elemen tal disturbances, a former resident of thls vlllage sends to a frlend bero a copy of tho Sunday Graphlc, portrayiug Kansaa City's lato bout with the storm fiend. Tho " fiend," sur- rounded by inky blackness streaked wlth chaln llghtnlng, in tho Bhape of a rutabaga ia de scending upon the dooraed city. Treea and ve hlcles are flylng through the alr and a stone bulldlng Is golng to plecea beneath the polnt of tho gyrating vcgctable. The Btreets are filled wlth debrit and a single indivldual, undenlably wrestllng with the "jim jams," Is sole spec tator of the ruinoua acene. "Just as it ap peared, of coursel" Is "Pnt's" endorsemont of the accuracy of the engnvlng, and the work of art ls cherlBhed accordlngly. " W. C." of Middlesex wrltes aa follows con cernlng the measles: "Thls contagious and loathsome disease seems to prevail in nll parts of the state. Ia It not about tlme that the pso ple were warned to be more carefol about speadlng lt among their frlenda and nelgh bors? It coats a good deal to have this disease run through a family at any tlme, and at thia busy Beaaon among the farmers the tax is a aevere one tosay nothingof the danger, suffer- Ing and discomfort of the ones alllicted. It seema to be a generally accepted opinlon that everybody must have the measles ometimc, and many folka thlnk the qulcker the botter. But 1 do not see the necessity any more than in the cafe of small-pox, cholera or other conta' gloua diseases. If those who havo the disease or have been exposed to lt would only be rea- Bonably careful, lts apread mlght bo stopped to a great extent; nnd lt they will not, let the Btrong nrm of the law bo used to raako them careful. If we have not a law for tlils case let us make one." The grand jnry of Caledonia county has In dlcted J. N, Gale, formorly superintendent of the St. Johnsbury water works, for embezzle- ment. No blll wns returned ngalnst Lelghton, who stabbed Heath at Barnet recently. Thla refus.il to Indict would seem to lndicato a be llof that Heath waa the aggrossor. Judge Judevlne of Hardwick f oems to have just aa poor luck unlDg tho law as ln trylng to make lt. The Index thua reports: "Tlio caseof A. K Judovlne of Hardwick vt, Dr. Weeks of Walden was trled Tuesday . In thla.case one Frank Williama fatled, and hoiihi property was at' tached nnd bld otf nt sherlff'B snle by Jude vlne. Somo of the property was afterwards bought of Williama by Weelis, who clalmed that tho attachtnent and pretendod ownershlp of the property by Judevlne was fraudulent. Judevlne, however, malntalnod hia grlp ou the property under a clalm of ownershlp, and eued Weeks In trover for trading with Williama and taking the property away, Tho only question seemed to be wbether Williama and Judevlne colluded to defraud tho former's lawful credlt ors. The jury evldently concluded that tho trade between Willlams and Judevlno waa not a bona flde one, and returned a verdlct for tho defendant." Alexandek D. Pierce, who llved In Orford, N.
