VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1890.
Stotours' Btt>t Vermont at Hoston. Kditor Watchman : Your raaden, ami etpeolally ihc rctcmntof Vermont, will be iutercsted in the (ir.md Anny nokmpment here this week. it was probablv the largest and most nthuil astic gathcriug of any k i n I ever helil in Hoston, and ilii! dellghtfullj cool weather hU linil much to do with the ootnplete luoceti of the Doampment, Then, again, the local arrangements were the fttj best. It has been a week thiil DO one wlio hus been here will cvor lorget. Muie, Ihigs and streamcrs, men iu blue at every turn, badgea and souvcnirs n salo at strcct coruers aul on the Common, a few side-shows of living and dead curiosi ties in tents on the parade-ground, a city full of epeetatore, hand-thaklnga and cheers this is the history of the week in brief. it would tnke columns to tell half the Intereeting thtnga that happened, 10 I venture to speuk of little else than what conccma Vermont veterans. liut that will involve almost the wholo reeord of the week, for the story of Vermont comus pretty near , beiug the story of the eneaiupment. Every Verm ntor should be proud of the part whiuh the state took iu this enoampment. Tosay nothingof Oolonel Veazey's electlon to the lirst otlice in the organizution, Vermont took the most promineat part in the festivities of the week. Take a look at the Tremont house. Hore, on the secoud lloor, opposite the dining-roorn, are the state's headquar ters. The room is lilled with Veriuonl ollieers and men at all hours of the day and evening when tl reunions are not in progress. Not au ollieer of any dis tinetion but has dropped in here to see the boys and renew old times. What a list of offloera here from Vermont C'olonel Veazey, Colonel Albert Clarke, Ceneral L, A. Grant, Colonel Wood bury. General Gilmore, C'olonel Hooker, General Ilrnry, Colonel Bene diet, Colonel J. H. Luoia, Colonel F E. Smith, Major I'owell, Colonel J. II. Walbridge, General T. 8. Peck, Adju taut .1. C. Stearus, Colonel P. G. But- terfleld, Major B. H. Jeune of Iludson, N. Y., Colonel Charlea II. Forbes and others. Then there are Secretary I'roetor and Goveri'.or Dillingham, and seen everywhere are the familiar face and form of General Stephen Thonias, still hale and strong, and wearing hil eighty-odd years as lightly as many a man wears half that number. General Thomas was wannly greeted by hun dreds of old soldiers. The lirst event ot the week was the reunion of the " Old Vermont Hrigade" at the eorner of the Com mon, near the state-house, on Monday evening. There were some six huu- dred merubers of the Hrigade present, with about the same number of men troni other reimnents, who came in early to joiu in the interesting reunion. The apectators must have nuinbered toward ten thousand. As General L. A. Grant stepped on the platform, General Peck ealled for eheers for the old commander, which were given with an earuestness that showed the love and rcspect in which the general is held by his men. Then the men caught sight of the old Brigade tlag, which Colonel Forbes had brought with him. It was earried by the old eolor sergeant, James R. MeGibbon of Goshen. What a shout went u! You could have hcard it at the water-front. Colonel Clarke, president of the Hoston Asso ciatiou, now made a short specch, wel coming the veterans to the city, and closing by introducing Mayor Ilart. The mayor also spoke cordial words of welcome. General Grant followed, and then General A. P. Howe of Cam bridge, General Thomas, ex-Governor Selden Conuor of Maine, Ilon. L. D, Richards of Fremont, Neb., now can didate for the governorship of the state, Professor Alonzo Williams of Providence, H. I., and Colonel Veazey spoke. Tuesday was the great day of tl.e week. The weather was perfect for a huge parade. A little rain at one time threatened some discomfort, but not the slightest annoyance was caused by it. The procession included in the Violnlty of 40,000 men, and llve or six thousand veterans at least did not march. It took the lino nearly seveu hours to pass given points, and there were forty-three states represented a most remarkable fact. The reviewing stand at Copley square was of course the center of intcrest. Ilero the presi dent, vice-president, tnembers of the cabinet, governors, etc, stood or sat and saw the long column go by. Gov ernor Dillingham was atteuded by Ad-jutant-general 'Peck, the latter re splendent in brass buttotis and nutner ous badges. General s Sberman and Hutler were the heroes of the group. The former was cheered to the ecUo, He wore his irray blouse, and was a Grand Army man in every particular. The general has chauged greally wilhin a few years. Kvery soldier noticed it, and DO doubt with hardly an exception the lirst thought of each was, " Ile won't stand it mucb longer." Presi dent Harrison was assiduous in recog nizing and returning the salutes of ll iu'-', swords and muskets. Ile was on hU I'eet tho greatcr part of the tinic General Alger was at tho head of the irocession, and his handsome, snldiorly faco provoked one long ovation. It was a proud day for tho popular cora- mander. Uinoli lod tho statos, and very QttlDg it was that tho state of Lin coln and Grant should head the column, which it did by virtuc of seniority of OrganlEatlOD. HOW the clieerswent up along Washington itreet! And hoW bright and beautiful were tho decora tions of bunting that waved over the boys in blue! It was a sight of a lifc timc. State after state swept steadily, grandly on. And hero is Vermont! I was tired enough to drop," said a veteran cavalry ollicer who was a spec tator, " but when I saw tho Vermonters toming, I yelled until I was hoarse. I wanted tosee the Vermonters any way." Not so fair looking, not so well dressed as tho men that had preceded thera, thev yet ealled out as many choors as any division. There were about 2,700 men in lino, and no stato but Massa- chusetts did better. Colonel Mansur led a body of men that was not matched in the whole line for service, and those who knew anything of the history of the war were eager to see and applaud the Vermonters. Massachusctts brought up the rear of the line with an ini- raense body of men. It was well into the evening when the line was dis missed aud the tired veterans betook themselves to their quarters. In the evening the reception at Mechauics' hall was attended by a crowd of some 10,000 men and women. Speeches were made by General Shermau, Gov ernor Hraekett, (ienoral Alger, Mayoi Ilart, President Annie Wittenmyer of tho Woman's Helief Corps, President Harrison and Vice-president M rton. street, with about 100 mon pnsint.

Fridav anl Saturday wero dt voted to cxcursions to places in the Violnlty of Hoston and other ways of amuiement. It has been a w ek of unprecedented abandon and enjoymenl . The liuii hai entertalned its visitors royally, and the veterans have had thoroughly good time. r. a. w. Hoston, August 1(1. Jtibcrttsfmcnts. JOHNSON Penslong Grantril. To Charlcs I.

The business meeting of the encamp ment came on Wednesday, and, as was expected, Colonel Veazey was chosen commander-in-chief. The two other candidates prcsented were Colonel W. R. Smedberg of California and Gov ernor A. P. Hovey of Indiaua. Com rade II. B. Taintor of Connecticut pre sented the name of Colonel Veazey, and among those who seconded it was Colonel S. E. I'ingree. The other can didates, seeing how things were going, withdrew, aud Colonel Veazey was elected by one vote, east by the adju-tant-general. Ile was escorted to tho chair by Comrades Hovey of Indlana, Smedberg of California and Miller of New York. Colonel Veazey's speech was enthusiasttcally applauded. Ie troit was selected as the next place of meeting, and a large miss of m'ncella neous business was attended to. In the evenitig came the great camp-lire at Mechauics' hall. Again there were 10,000 people present. Speeches were made by Governor Brackett, General Alger, General Sherman, General Rut ler, Major McKiuley, Major William Waruer and General Sickles. " Tent ing on the Old Camp-ground " was sung at the close. Meauwhile Colonel Veazey had been making a speech at the banquet of Gettysburg post of Massachusetts at Faneuil hall. After this was over, he was given a rousing reception at the Tremout house. He was aooonipanied by Mrs. Veazey, and Mrs. 0. S. Walton of Washington, their daughter. (ienoral Peck had the honor of Introduolng the veterans. Oae in teresting thlng about the reception was the presence of Old (iuard post of Washington, of which Colonel Veazey is an honorary member. The happiest event of the evening, however, was the presentation of a badge to Mrs. Wal ton by the Old Guard post, thus mak ing her au honorary member, in recog Qitlon of the fact that she was born on the day of the battle of Gettysburg. Colonel Veazey was well tired out that evening, and was attended by a physi cian. Wednesday was also a day of re unions and of the meeting of the Rclief Corps. The " Old Vermont Rrigade " had its formal reunion at tho Rice school-house. Governor Dillingham and others spoke. At the close of this reunion tho veterans of the Second Brigade also had a meeting. l ilty membcrs of the three Vermont com panics of the Herdan Sharpshooters met at the Knglish high school building and organizod. The Vermont Veteran Randsmen's Association was also or ganized at this place. The Sixteenth Rogiment met at l'rince school hall, and was addreased by Colonel Venzcy. The Eighth Regimeut met at the otlice of Colonel G. N. Carpeuter, on Milk !&bertisnTunts. GRATUITOUS ADVICE.

" A cold dinner " iH in some families a kiixl of unwilling martyrdom, but it may be made a fcast rathcr than a fast, if rightly plnnned. Chooso for the maln dlab lometbtrjg that is not onlj really good when eateo cold, but tultt i to tho tastes for which you cater. In some familics a good picce of roast beef, terred cold and cut verytbiD,li the most acceptable dinner that can be offend on a hot day. Others like only obloken or wmic dalnty rallah, if offerea fresh from the ice-box instrad of the grtdlron. Prested oorned bccf orbolled ham is exccllenl cold, and to many more appcti.ing than frcsh meat. Whatever it be, let it be the best of its kind, and served in a neat, attractive manner. A tetnler becfsteak or cut lct of veal, cooked at breakfast tiUfl and ohopped, tben mixed with lettuce and served ai a lalad for an early din ner, is both grateful and satisfying. Cold bolled potatoes or green peas, or both, may be served as vcgetablei ; slring beans, with a salad dressing, will be a delightful surprise to some. Hadishes, cucumbers or lomatoes, sliced as cold as possible, are all capital ac cessories to the cold dinner. DellclOUS bread and buttrr are a little more dcli cious with a cold dinner than at any other time. There are very many peo ple iu thesedays who know the value of pure sweet milk, cold and creamy, as it can be had inabundance onlhe farm. A family inclined to criticism will be reconcilcd to a cold dinner by a su perior desserl. After the simple yet satisfying course outlined, at once hearty and refreshing, and to which the housc-mother can coine cool and com fortable, strawberries and cream is really an ideal dessert. With whipped cream, dritd peaches carefully stewed, or canncd fruit with a basket of cake, niake a suitable dessert for the most fastidious. A small oil stove will en oble the housekeeper to make a good cup of coffee without heat or trouble, and a really good cup of coffee after dinner is a real luxury. Hut if the tastes of the family incline to pie or a rlcb pudding, it is weil to provide amply iu this way, and as pastry is hest made in hot weather before breakfast, and a nuddiug can be started " when the milk comes in," and bakeil during breakfast time, it will not interfere with that leisurely and lireless condi tloo tbrough tho hottest hours of the day which is so greatly couducive to the comfort and health of every over tasked housewife. Erxhanrje. cascs of vatious sorts, antl scents are loattarnd avfrywbtM anona her pot IfHion. Tho lndy of ( qintlly rt lined tnstes imt srnaller Inooma can casiiy prodOOe theit tffl cls by the use of a very simple and ini xpensivc lUbttltntO, The otlor of llni'ly-powdered orris-root is almost prccisely the same as that of the double Knglish violets, which nrc sold at large prices. Twenty-livc cents worlh of orris or less than that if your druoKisl is at all libcral is suffloieDl to Itnpart a deliirhtful fragrance toall your pos8essions to which fragrance should be applied. The Wboletome. clean and d licato odors t)f the lavender llower, "strawberry" spruce and the lino blooms of sweet white dover, which are found in some parts nf our country, are qutte lUfflolent, il carefully gnthered and dUtrlbnted in proper qaantltles, to make a gcneious supply of delicate pcrfumc for the household lincn, ward robt and toilets of the farmer's wife and daughter. Pleasant perfunn s will not abitle with unwholcsome one. This is true of one's propcity and per son. No perl'ume at all is much more desirable than cither a strong or a corr mon one. Hut the orris-root can be safely ricommendcd, if used in the right way, for its delicacy, pcrmanency and sweet nrss. Ladittf Home JourfMU (l:uutational.

Gerrus of many evils are always about us, and for a long time, perhaps, are undiscovered, excepting by the odor. From drains this odor is a deadly poi son, rampant in a house closely shut for the night. If only the windows in the basemeut were protected by iron bars, aml the windows left open an inch or two at the top and bottom, a great doal of fever and other illnesa would be avoided. Hut even with every facility given for expelling the offensive aud deadly gerras of disease, few servauts care to see to the matter, this otlice falls to the mistress or mas ter, with whom it is, however, an es peclal duty if health is to be gained or kept, diphtheria and scarlet fever avoided. If an aperture of some length were made in the wall above and be low a window, and this protected with a frame-work of small iron bars, or strong wire netting, and two screens of wood to cover the upper aud lower draugbtl during the day, the poisou would be banished. Iu some way or other fresh air should be circulating in the basement of every house during the night. When bedateada are infested with detestable insects, carbolic ncid applied to the crevices of the bedstead and to the seams of the (loor sends them off as if by magic. Iron bed steads are also often infested. In some old houses, and motlern ones,too, there is a kind of " dry-rot," found generally in the corners of the doors, where no air peuetrates. It is a powder, and re sembles, somewhat, mites in cheese. It cuuses a disugreeable odor. Otherwise thau in lloors it is occasionally found in cheap chcsts of drawers that have been made to look ornamental by palnt and enamel. Cream of tartar, rubbed in drv, is a clean remedy, and after a short time the Bjpot should be washed with il in a liquid state. Water impregnated with copper and oil of vitriol is said never to fail to eradicate dry-rot. Sub limate of niercury is used for prcveut ing dry-rot in railway sleepers, and wood so treated becomei like iron for hardness. It is dry-rot in a uew or old house which gives ita close, old-clolhes kind of odor burtful to any ofHlcted with cough or asthma, bringing ou se rioui OOmpllcatloui in the human frame. Vet this (try-rot pest is unnoticcd, be cause the wood has the appearauce of a rathole or perhaps a mouse-uibble. llome Magazine. Emiiloy the Chlldreui (iive your childn n something to do. Of course it is much easier to do it yourself than to stop aud teach the lit tle one to do it, eithcr as well or as qaiokly as you can do it yourself, but that is not the thing. It is not a ques tion of time, ease or speed. Children must be busy; their little, active brains will scheme for something, and if not directed in the right channel, it must be in a bad one. They can not be Idle ; the little, restless hands must be doing something. The mother who keeps those little hands occupied in her serv ice is using an iiilluence for good in future years. If mothers wili study their children's tastes, and trv to culti vate those tastes, give to each child its favorite occupation, or some duty it seeras especially suitPd for, the mother will soon Bnd that these half-hours of occupation will soon really be ouite an assistance to her. For instnnce, let the child that has natural love for children help at certain times of the day in amusing the smaller children of the family. Don't make it a drudgery or a sacrilice, but a pleasurr; then she will soon grow fond of the responsibility of looking after a baby sister or brotiier. Let the child that is most fond of BoW ers arranne a few each day for sevcral rooms; let her see that the dishes are sct straight on the diniug-table, open the blinda and let in the sunlight, and take care of the bird if there is one, or per form sundry such little service. Kn courage the small boys to be useful. Fill your home with such books and tools as will help them to be useful; or, in other words, study the several tastes and wants of your childish vearnings, and gratify theirs, as it is possible, for their pleasure aud good. I'arlor and Kitchen. Delicate Perfatnea A delightful perfume has an inde scribable iiilluence. All people of re Bned taate love It. The odor of a clus ter of blush roses, a handful of sweet violets or tinted traillng arbulus, is sure, for the time, to drive uway frowns and unpleasant thoughts. No woraan can, delibcrately, set her lips to unkind, harsh, rasping w.irds in the jiresence of a bunob of lilies-of-the-valley , breath ing forth the very essence of sweetness and purity.
