the Seminary grounds. Monday afternoon,
came to a most antimaly end. During the
earlier part of the afternoon the heavens
dislilled coplouslv upon the already moist I
earth, and it lookeil for a timeas if there
would he no game. But before four o'clock
the clouils had taken iinto themselves wings
and the Montpeliers took the Held. For I

it was impossible for the pitcher to control '
its erratic Rtght. The Burlingtons scorecl
two rnns in the lirst inning and seven in
the second. After this the Montpelier bat
tery settled ilown to business and the visit
Ora were nnable to get a man across the
plate. The Montpeliers were steadily
gainlng on their opponenta when. with the
score seven to six in the last ball of the tifth
inning, the hreak came, The umplre had
been getting in his deadly work against
the bome team all througb the game, and in
this inning. with Montpelier at the bat, no
one OUt and two men on bases, he perpe
trated a most villninous decision that '
caused the spectatora to groan in agony,
A prompt protest was entered against the j
decision, whereupon the burly Burlington
captain ordered his neta otT the tield iind
refused to continue the game. Theuinpire, I
after waiting the prescribed time, awarded !
the game to Montpelier, nine to nothing.
The action of the Burlington team was
childisb in the extreme and was due solely
tO their desire to escape the defeat in store
for them. They were evidently diaap
OOinted in flndtng that they had at last run
up against a team which was no "snap"
for tliem, and took that way of extricating
themselves from the hole in which they
were located.

Kihki.d. By the death of Colonel orange
Plfleld a eoininanding ligure atld a famous
obaracter has dlaappeared from the atage
of mortal activlties. Gf robust physical
fraine, he had prolongeil the peraonal inan
sgement of his estate far beyond the period
when uan'a aotlve partiolpatlon in affatra
enda. Thrown from a oarriage some yars
ago, and receivlng Injurlea that materially
crlppled his . nergies and enfeebled lilm,
accluenl aeemed to prevall where time aml
the strain of a busy life had faileil to make
their powers felt, The fatal eneniy of
inany elderly people, pueumonin, assailed
blm, aiul on Wedneaday morning, Jnne B,
his vital forees sni remlereil. Celonel
Orange Pideld was deBcended from old New
Eugland stock. His parents, Colonel Sam
uei Flfleld aml Barali Davis Fifleld, came
from Hopklnton, N. II., and settled in
Orange, vt., In I79T, when this land, now
threaiaed by Llghwaya aml raitroads, was a
wilderness and the blazed tree was the set
tlers' gulda-poat. In the " forest primeval "
Mr. Kitield was born April 2. 1808, and he
had the primitive advautages for edneation
possessed by the Vermont hoys of that day.
Nature had liberally endowed the youth
with qnalitlea that fonnd a rapid develop
nient aiuid the OPPOrtunities for trallic pe-
CUllar to a newly-sottled country. He had an
aptitude for trade, and became a leading
operator in the staple articles of mer
chandise of half a cenliiry ago. A shrewd
ness that became proverbial, a Judgtnent
that was rarely at fanlt, an enterprise that
was never timld were his leading charac
teristics as a tradesman. He was for many
years postniaster at tlrange and repre
sented tbe town ln the legialature. Heim
bibed the martial spirit of his tlmea and be
came colonel of a regitnent of state militia,
and also commander of a brigade in tlie
palmy daya of the old New England mns
ter. His liusiness and Bnancial BBgacity
made him a direetor in the old Orange
County Bank, the associate and business
peer of the notable men of the county. Mr.
Fifield possessed an intelligence that was
peculiarly his own, and he had a faeulty of
diaCOVering tlie strong polnta in a case and
of atating them in language that was dis
tlngulahed by its teraeneaa, tucidity and
plotureaque force. His formulas for attain
ing luccess iu business, his uuirpie eiu-
boulmenl of every-day wiadom in striking
phrase may not ha'c been c'assic, but they
were instinct with originality and compact
common aenae. The gener.itintn among
which he lived will not soon forget his
maxlma and pungenl aaylnga, liy reasou of
their Inherent wisdom, as well as of the
groteaque garb ln which he olothed them.
In 1868 Colonel Kitield moved to Mont
pelier. In 1832 he married Melissa Nelson,
whose death occurred some years
Fonr of their six chihlren survive B. F.
