Aftor much questlonlng the sick man, who was very retlcent to speak, sald his name waa Danlel Purdy, and that he formerly llved in Mont pelier, Vt., but now had no horae. IIo sald hla wifo died several months ago, and that ho dld not know tho whereabouts of his little boy, Ho said ho had taken morphlno yesterday. Two ofllcers led Purdy to the Chambers Street hospital, and from thenco ho waa transferred to the Bellevue hospital. The surgeon of tho Chambcra Strcot hospital thought Purdy was suffering from alcohollsm, and that his case was not one of nttempted suicldo." We have made inquiry, but have failed to flnd anyone who ever knew any such man. AccoitDiNO to the Montteal Gazette, thero is llkoly to be another hotel at Lake Mernphre macoe. It pavs : " At tho invitation of the Hon. J. Grecory Smlth, president of tho Cen tral Vermont rallway, a party of about thlrty Montreal and American gentlemen left the clty by special train on Saturday for Lake Mem' plire.magog to select'a.slte for.the erectlon pt mammoth first-class summer hotel on the Can- ada Bid of tho lake. Among them were the non. Mr Smlth, Mr. A. C. Stonegravo and Mr. Futvoye, of tho Central Vermont; Mr. G. W. Swett, manager of the Windsor hotel, and Mcssrs. Hartt, Hcctor, MacKenzle, Arcli, Cis sila and R, McLea of Montreal. In the oplnlon of one of tho gentlemen present the slto se lectod Is one of tho finest placea on the beauti f ul and far famed lake, and be had no doubt In his own mind but that the erectlon of the hotel would bo shortly commenced." Mit. Wilde has temporarlly abandoned hla work asan apostlo of the beautiful, and iaglv- ing lectures in London on the prosalc subject of America. "If you agk rae," heaald, "what first struck my attentlon in Now York, I would say lt was thls, that if the Araericana aro not tho most well-drcssed people in the world they aro certalnly the most comfortably dressed. I I saw no raga ln New York at all. One Is struck wlth, the proiperity that Is seen overy- where; and tho second thlng thatstrikes ma Is that evorybody seems to be In a hurry of some kird. Ab regards nature in America, when ono Ianda lt rather tries to bully one by its en ormoua slze. It behavea llke a blg boy in a private school. lt saya it ia bo much bigger than evervthlng else that one haa to admlro it. But I confesa it ianot tho blg thinga in Amorica that aro to bo admlred nt all. Magara, liko tho Atlantlc Ocean, Ia extremely dlaappolnt- Ing." Callfornla opened upon his vlewasthe most beautiful part of America. The people "Well, tho American glrl is theprettlest dospot In the world. Sbe seems to me to be a little oaai of picturesque unreasonablenesa ln h de- sert of common sense." A suit haa been commenced ngainst Sher- man & Jenne, insurance agenta at Brattleboro, by the New York Llfe Insurance company, A. P. Chllds, general agent, for llbel. An auony- mous clrcular haa been dlstrlbuted by tho de fendants In whlch wna quoted an article from tho New York Ileraltl of February 1G, Btating that tho general term of New York courts had held the New York Llfe Insurance company's tontine syntem to be based on false representa tiona nnd breacb of contract, in fnlllng to keep th tontino funda Beparate, and then went on to make comparisons unfavorable to the New York Llfe of Its agenta" commissiona and ex ponsoa, wlth those of the Mutual Llfe. Tho plalntlff 'g clnlm ls that no such declsion as that reported ln tho IleralU and circular haa In fact ever been rendered, and that tho lcglslaturo of the Btate of New York and tho full bench of the supremo court In general term, have fully nus talned the action of the company, decldlng that Ithad fully carrled out both tho letterand splrlt of the contract. The clrculars wero dla- tributed by Sherman & Jenne, but lt is under- stood that lt was by tho lnstructlona of the Mutual Llfe, whlch company it ls expected wlll defend the case. Since the nbolltion of the match tax the mak era have reduced prlces. In Now York recently tho wholesale prlce foll to fifty cents n groaa upon which the tax hnd been one dollar and forty-four cents. Tho consutuers, however, nro not gettlng tho full beueflt of the tax abo Htlon. Somewhero botween tho maker and the usor onough of the former tax is stlll ro talned on the price to make alono n fair prollt Not only thia, but the shortage ln tho count of the packagos would ltsolf make another largo profit, it a eingle case is an Indox of the gen oral condltlon of packagea, nnd we prosumo lt la. An lndlvldual rccontly bought a ono- elghth groaj of Portlands and had the curl oslty to count them. Thobunchea should havo contalned ono hundred matches, but the actual number waa fonr carda of twenty-threo eoh to a bunch , maklng a shortago of one hundred and forty-four in a oae-elghth groBS, or fraud of eloven and ono-half full bunches ln a gross. Thls explalng why thoso artlcles nfe called luclfer matches, and undoubtedly tbo term should wlth cqual approprintcncss be applled to many other klnds of merchan dlso by reaaon of short count, llght wclght, or patanlc adulterntlon. Thb Sunday JlepubUean had the followlng account of the game of round ball nt Brattle boro, which was mentloned ln laat week'g Watchman : "Tho gamo was called promptly nt threo o'clock, wlth II. R. Lawrence ns um- plre nnd Captaln Ilooker nt tho bat. The lat ter was taBtefully nnd rlchly attlrod ln white pantg, a gllk velvet coat nnd white tlo. Ilo would hnrdly have been recognized nfter the first round, howover ; his pantg wero thoroughly used up, hlg faco waa brulsed, and ho was completely wlnded. A new palr of pantg was sent for nnd tho gamo proceeded wlth energy, Captaln Hooker's men, Messra. Starkey, Clark, Haskins, Chllds, Taylor, Tucker, Stoddard and Allen proved good hltterg and Bwlft runnerg, Captaln Brookg cirao to tbe bat becomlngly ahd coolly attlred. Hlg men were Messrs, Martln, Cox, Cressy, Fullor, Gale, Chllds, WU- lard, Taylor and Lynde. There were thlrty' nlne lnnlnga in two hours and a half, the gamo endlng In n tle. Durlng tho last innlng an 1m- provlsed nmbulance, escorted by a drum corps, 'camo upon the ground and took threo of the dlsablod from the fleld, followed by tho nlncs, the captains bearing a protty banner presented by the women. The spectatora voted thegame tho most remarkable and langbablo oxhlbitlon ever wltnessed In the place." A Rutland correspondent of tho Sprlngfield Iiepublican has thls to ay about tho Rutland railroad trouble: " Clement clalmato control forty thousand Bharea out of slxty-elght thou- Band, and may very llkely win; but then agaln he may not. Governor Page'a frlenda say that thero is n good doal of bluff in the Clement claima, and intlmate that now both sldea aro falrly understood a good many proxles glven the Clements on the Btrength of thelr first statementa may be revoked. Tbe feellng In town certalnly is strongly in Page's favor. Ile Isamanwhoso frlends stand byhim, ho has done a great deal for tho town, and he has be haved well ' under firo,' all of which helps to turn publlc feellng in his favor. Aslde from tho first hot-headed outburst of his attorneys in tho local paper, he has acted on the defenslve and hasn't injured his case by ' shooting of his month ' ln public. IIo walted until people had begun to get curloua ns to what ho had to Eay for hlmsclf, nnd then spoke ln a wny that has helped hiui wlth tho community and wlll be llkely to do so wlth tho stockholdera. Thero Is a little feellng that he hmn't had a fair show, and his lnalnuatlon that tho Smith ilng ls back of the Clement raid won't hurt hlm nny. Tho Idea of hla backlng explaina to them why the Clements, who never have been railroad men, and who have got blg interest on thelr invest ruents, are trylng to buy a road that lan't in first-rate financlal condltion, Moanwhile Ifayen, who waa the cause of all thia bobbery, ls lost Blght of. He is in town nnd his affalrs are bclng settled up In the insolvency court, yy. 'o rsw fivimnt thau attends any largej failuro. The truth Is the man was mo're of a figure-hoad than n power. He was thought to be rlch and ho Invested ln local enterptisea recklossly, which gavo him a good deal of prominence ln town and more out of it. But ho la not a strong man, and hla disappearance from active llfe only lnakes a break becauso of tho withdrawal of his money." Montpelier. Pcrsonnl.

On Thursdav last a teletrram wag received from Burlington clty authorltiea, statlng that tho ntght prevloug thelr pollco had arrested a man and boy, on tho Btrength of a telegram nent irom tma piace on tne morning aner ine rocent burglarles. They had found tho parties ln n car ln tlio depot yard, nnd nad recognized tbo man aa belng ono llurley, a convict who had recently served out a throo yeara' term at Windsor, to whlch placo no nad been sentoncea for a robbery committed In Burlington. Slier iff Tuttle and II. A. Huse, Ktq., went to Bur lington at once, whero they held lntervlewg wltn tno man and boy geparateiy. ine ooy, who was fifteen yeara old, gavo his name as George Willlams, and statod that bo had for merly and uutll ma parentH died, nveu in Akron, 111. ; that he had recently como from Malne, whero ho had vlsited several places; that he went from there to Canada; that ho had etopped at Sherbrooko and St. Albans; and thnt bo had never been as far south In Ver mont as Montpelier. IIo further stated that he had never Been his companlon until tbo day before, when ho met him In the cars. It ap peared from tho Interview with tho man that he had been ln oxactly tho same placea ag tho boy and at much the same tlraea; and the boy was at last mado to confess that ho had been wlth blm some of the time since ho waa ln Malno. A careful examinatlon of artlcles takon from them at the tlmo of thelr nrrost served to reveal notblng sugplclous, but only to indlcate that there was notbing to prove that they had ever been In Montpelier. Mr. Huse camo home on the nlght expresa and returned to Burlington on the early morning train, ac companied by Dr. W. D. Reld, who went to Identify the rogue, If posslble. Upon seelng them, Dr. Reld waa at once convlnced that the man waa not the aamo whom he had encoun tered at Mr. IliU'a on the nlght of the bur glarles. His declsion belng in thia dlrection, it ls needloss to glvo -hla reasona for the same. About tbe boy he was not bo posltive, but could give no evidence to prove that he waa the rlght one. It further appeared tbatthetwohad been travellng ln company with two others, nnd it la thought by aomo that tho latter may have been tho thievea ; but thoae under arrest claimed to liavo parted with them tne day ueiore, nnd to know nothlng of thelr whereabouts at that tlme.
