The soclety Ineludes in its memberabip Governor Page, both oongreaamen and a maiorlty nf the state aud military oflleers. 1 heae otlicers were ohoaen for tbe year enaulng: Prealdent, General MoOullough of Bennington) vloe- prealdeut, Hon. Henry Powers of Morris ville; seeretary, t'barles S. Forbes of St. Albana; treasurer, M. K. Paine of Windsor; rogistrar, H. L. Stillson of Bennington; hiatorian, G, G, Benedioi of Burlington; chanlaln, Kev. L M. Hardy of Burlington. The Soeiety of tbe Sons of tbe Ameriean Revotutlon is non-partisan and frea frotn bias in favor of any partieular religious de nomination. Its objects are iatrlolie and social to oherish aud maintain Ameriean InStitUtlons in tbeir purity; to perietuate Ihespirit and ineniory of the patriots who aehieved Ameriean indepemboice; to pro inote and encourage tbe proper observance of Bnniversarics and days commemorating Importanl eventa in early Ameriean hla tory; toerect inonumeiits marking blatorio plaees and statues OOmmemorating beroic natiies; to preaerve docutnents, relies and private records relating to peisons and events con neoted Wltb, or wbo took part In, the estab lishment of tlie Independeiiee of tbe L'nited States of Amertca; to encourage such edu OBtion as will best prepare our ohlldren for tbe dlaobarge of the Importatt duties of Amarloan oitlBenBhlpi and to promote social Interoourae and fellowshlp among its niem bers now aml bereafter, Kaeh soeiety is in harmony with all other ooletlea of tbe kind in tbe oountry, and the objects are: fflf, to UnlteinB soeiety every male realdenl of eaoh state wbo oan traoe bis deaoent from aome peraon wbo assisted in establishing Ameriean iiidependenoe. Second, to preaerve the tradltlona, diarlea, letteri and mementoes wbieb are now bid den in attics aud trimks, and to gather and preaerve tbe relies and records of tbat period now iu tbe possession of private per- sons. Third, toatlmulate tbe prideof birth, as being Ameriean, and deadended from revolutionary ancestors. fotirfA, the so eiety la eapeolally deaigned to atimulate a love for our cotmunn country, its brave peo ple aml grand Inatitutlone. Tliis is a work wortby of tbe earnest sup port and BCtlve sympalby of eery true A rioan, and tbe Soeiety of Sons of tbe Ameriean Revolutlon conndently asks and ezpeota tbe bearty co-operatton and entbu siastic help of sons of revolutionary ances- try in avery state of tbe Onlon, Any peraon may be eligible to i nber- ihip iu tbe aooiety wbo is a male above the Bge of twenty-one years. aml is deacended from an anoeato? who aaalated in eatabliah ing Ameriean Independence during tbe war 1 of the revolutlon, eitber as a military or naval offioer, a aoldier, or a aailorj au ofiiclal iu tbe servlce of any of the thirteen origlnal colonlea or atatea or of Vermont j a mem ber of a commltte of oorreapondenoe or of , publio aafety ; or a reoognhted patrlot wbo rendered material aervioe in the cauae of Ameriean Independence. To become a lneinber of the soeiety it is uecessary to till out aml sign two applioa tiona, one to be filed with tbe seeretary of tbe state soeiety, and one to be sent to the regiatrar-general of tbe n itioiial soeiety, to ; be preserved among tbe naliotial records if the applloation la approved. I' is expeoted 1 tbat theae records will bring to ligbl many untold blta o family history aud peraonai bravery beretofore unknown. At no time, perhapa, iu tbe paat oentnry lias the de- mand fiir such a soeiety been more pressing. Witli unres'ricted imiuigration aud burried i nat uralization, it bebooves all good Amer- ioana to awaken to tbe faol that we must take a more active part iu the admiuistra- I tion ot our affaira, and not leave it to the foreign elemeiit au eleinent among whbdi we find tbe Moiiy Magulrea, the Dlan-na-Gael, Rungarian Ghoula aud L i Matia all of wblob are foreign and oppoaed to every tbing wbieb is truly aml distinctivel.v Ameriean, MAKE SURE OF THIS. WHENEVER a cooking re ceipt calls for baking pow der, use only the "Royal." Better re sults will be obtained because it is the purest.

Great preparations for this fall. Great expcctations also. A positive force directs the COining antl going in the Cloak 1 epartment. No use for a toy bell to her ald the news. It refpiires the largest ever east to tell it loud and long. We catch some of the notes : "We wish to make the an nouncementto every lady, every miss and every girl in this state that we have jtist what you want in (iarments." That's Btraight from the chief's right arm. He don't want you to think that he liasn't always provided just what you watlted, but the conditions this year are different, and he wants you to know that he still leads the procession, and that he lias now, as ever, just ivhat you want, And he has. We know it, for our eyes hath seen the marvels he displays. In a confident tone the words roll out next : " Do you de sire a rich, inexpensive, truly beautiful Jacket, plain or fur trimmed, a handsome cape, 40 inches long ; the newest Xew markt:t, with the long cape ; a I'lush Sacque ; aquilted lined Circular ; a Gretchen ("oat : a Fur Cape, 1 7 inches deep or 3 1 inches deep, in any kind of fur fur by the yard in the variety of widths : Mackintosh Liarmems ; i ea Ijowiis ; rlouse Waists in silk, llannel or cash mere ; Little Coats two, three and four years' sizes ? We have them in grcatcr variety and rangc of pricc tiau ever before." There, that is breezy and important, and you will. of course, consider it well. The next point made by the Cloak Department refers to the Plush Sacque at $28 ; worth 540. This is the claim made for it. " We will put it in competition with any Sacque at any price above $o." You will want to look into that also, for you are pretty sure to find that whatever the head of our Cloak Department says is pretty nearly so. Krinncr Capes, at $27.50, will also be of interest to you. There are two more points wanted to be made for your benefit, and you are contidently ! mvited thus : " Please see the 1 new deep Capes. Piease see the new 30-inch Fur Capes. Please see the $5.00 all-silk Waists." You must accept that invita tion surely, because you would not be asked unless there was something good for you to see. Last of . all comes an im portant assertion : " Large. stout people, who NEVER have been able to get a gar ment reid) -made we CAN tit you to a Jacket. Try us." Well, ladies, that covers the case for the zealous chief of the great Cloak Department. You have his own words. with our runtling comments on them. We can add to what you'H find between the quotation marks that his long experience in selecting for you gives you the best of all certainty that whatever you want in low-price or high you will get here a little better than you are likely to get anywhere else.
