His devotion to base ball is as great as ever, aud duriug tbe summer he has been with tbe Hoyalston team, which played balf a do.en games at Burlington reeeutly.

Warren GfBBI, ) Thk Montpelier .V Wtdls River railnstd tnanagemenl has arranged au excursion to Mount Washington which for attraotlveneaa and cheapness surpasses anything the rail ways have offered this summer. Fare for the round trip, from all stations, is only 4, the regular tarilT h.ing 13, Tlcketl are good to go 011 all regular trains on Thurs day Beptember 10 only; good returning until and Inoluding Beptember 12. Trains will arrive at Pabyam at 11:40a. m. aml .":.,o P. M. ; leave Fahyans for sumtnit of Mount Washington at 4:40 p. K., arriving at 6 T. M. ; returning leave lUtnmit at 7 A. M aml 2 P. M , oonneotlng at Fahyans witb all trains. Bldl IZOUnloni to Prolllu Hottso and return ($2.00), Fltitne C-s'l 00), Maple wood (thirty-flve cents), Bethlehem flifty Oents), are arranged. Arrangements bave been made witb tbe manager of tbe Sumtnit House and other botels for rednoed rates for those hohling excursion tickets. Banaet and innrlae from tbe anmmit of Mount Washington are tbe grandest sigbts In tbe world. (ndeed, " you cannot aihnl to miss this excursion." The sermon of Rev. J, Edward Wiigbf, Sunday morning, was tipnn Cbristian ser vice, as contrasted witb WOrlhlp, Ile notetl tbe fact that the tendency of tbe ohurohei to-day was in the directlon of service. An applloatlon of his retuarks on this theuie was made to the churchei in Montpelier, whlob, although they had alrea.ly don mnch for the viilage aml its reaidenti, ongbt, he thougbt, to do more. One of the great, needl of tlie viilage is a buildlng iu which the young men who have no homes tuay Hnd readiog-matter, refreihmenti, amuse roents and an opportunlty for gymnaitlo ezercise, Suoh a buildlng would greatly promote the pbysical, niental and moral bealth of the communlty, It would call for a large suiii of uiouey, but the one who will fnmlsb it will do a great good to tbo viilage. The buildlng should be entirely free froin a sectarian oreven religious atmos phere. Anotber need of the viilage is a lioine for aged and helpless people, and still anotber is a cottage boapltal. Slr. Wriglit dwelt earnestly upou the subject of acottagd boapltal, referriug to the one at New- ton, Mass., which was the tirst, to bo Bltab I lilhed iu this country, a few years ago. All j that would be ueeded to establish inofa a bos ; pital iu Montpelier would he a building aml a trained nurse as matron. A private resi dence could be purehased for a moderate ium. No reiident pbyilolan would bo ueeded, for eaeh patient could bave any pbyatelan he ohose. Tbe advantagaa of mon a ho-.pital are obvious. Voung inen witbout homes, persons taken ill while passing throiigh the town, and the poor, whose sur roundings make recovery nearly impossible, even witb the best tuedieal attendance all these and others could be taken to the bos pital and cared for in the best manuer, Mr. Wrlght'i luggeatloni ongbt to Hnd roiponaa somewhare iu Montpelier. There is a real need of these tbree InititUtiOUI, aml it is likely to grow more imperative as timn goes on. Labor Day ftl Montpelier, Tbo labor orgauizations of this viciuity planned the most extenilve damonitration over made on Labor ilay iu this state, aml as far as it was possible the programtue was oarrled ont on Baturday, Tbe unfavorable weather, however, was a serious lnterfer ence, aud all regretted it. Tbe streets w. rt, in a muddy oonditlon aml marcbing was far from pleasant, but the real obstacle was the rain Itielf. There were tnauy visitors in town, and the streets put on the appear ance of a gala day. Tlie Northfield delegn tlon of stone-workers arrived earlv, and martial niuilo woke tho eoboaa before a good many Montpelier people bad put their beadl oitt-of-doors. The procession fortued at about half-past uine o'clock, 011 Batro street. F. W. Carver, marshal, and F. E. Bowman and Williaiu Haskell, aids, were mounted and rodeat the heal ol tboco!- umn, The Barre inen left tlieir train a) short distance abovo tbe viilage and took their place iu liue by marchiug down Barre street. The delegatioti from tbe Grunife City numbered ahout 400 men, Montpelier turniihed toward 200, and Mortbfleld eon tributed some forty. The colutun made a very titie appearauce, aud to mauy it was surprisitig to see such a large nuiuber of Uen iu line. Let tis stand on Maiu street aud watcb tbe procession as it passes. The Montpelier branch of the Granite Cut ters' Union, with the Montpelier band, has the right of the line, aud certainly no part of the procession looked better tban this. The men wore soft brown hats, white jackets aml striped aprons, aud eacb carried a caue. Tbe branch was in coinmaud of Presideut George Keboe, with Vice-Presideut, Williaiu Dunitan ai bii lieutenant, a squad ofilx lnetnbers of the Cigar Makers' Iuternatioual Union, No. 204, of Rtitland -all Moutelier inen catne directly iu tlie wake of the cnt ters.
