Tbeir conlribution, however, amounted to only 91.00, which scarcely overi'ame the vote for the Apollo Club.

Thrrr has been lonaiderable mnic, tbe past week, In the Wheeler househobl on Eat State street, to judge from external anpear anoee. About lliree weeks ago Mrs. Wheeler appeared on the front stoop, arraved for : Journey, even to the blnl-cage. " 8be le; aurely drew on her gloves, glanced up an.l ilown the atreet, and walked off. In the house, alone, was left an adopted cbiid. Tbe kidlet behaved ouite well, however, until tbe arrlval of Mr. Wheeler, when it WM glven In charge of F.llen Allen. About; week ago Mrs. Wheeler smblenly appeared aml demanded the oblld, Ellen refuseil t.i give It up, aml the wotnan snatched It awa v from her. It was promptly snatched back", when Mr. Wheeler appeared, and, if it has not been " n-plevined " since, is safely in charge of lfs adopted papa. Mi s.

John Ivklly, who works on the farin of IrvingSparrow, near the Junction, attendi the diine theater, last Satunlay evenin:. The tragedy part of the play preyed on his mind, and he plnnged into a saloon and took a drink. Every time he tboiight of the sufferings of tbe heroine be took another drink, so tbat when miilnight approache.l, be was just able to toddle. His brother took him to tbe farm and left. him at the gate, inppoaing be could flnd his own way into bed. Insteail, Kelly apparently wati dered down tho track, for tbe early morn- ing traln struck bim In the bridgejnil t- low tbe farm cutting off one leg below tbe knee. He had apparently lald down near the track to rest, witb one leg over tlie rail, andit was more chance tbat he had not laial down with his body across the track. Wben the traln struck Kelly, tho engineer and llreman anipeoted something wrontr. and went back. The Injnred man was taken to the Sparrow farm, aml Dn. Kemp and Cbamller summoned. The mangled leg was amputated a few inches below tho knee. There was also a cut on the man'-i bead, presumably caused by a fall. Since a year ago laat August, Kelly is the third Montpelier man who has loat a leg on the railroad while drunk. Thk Unitarian fair, last Thursday and Friday, was lUoh an iinciialilieil, dailUng success that tbe ladies have not yet re covered from tbeir pleasant surnrise. Just think over 8000 taken in, aml about 94-V of that clear prorlt. " I am afraid," smiled one of the ladies, " that we have established a bad precedent." The fair opened Thurs day afternoon with a delightful tea. The vestry was thronged all the afternoon by people who seemed determined to make tha fair a notable success. The candy table wai a splendid feature, and netted over $11, while the time-bonored fancy tahle astor ished itself tiy earning aboiit 9100. Tbe votli.g on the telephone privilege was quitn spirited, Mrs. Henry Fullerton being the winner. Onoof tbe most enjoyable teatorei was the lunch which opened Friday'a pro oeiedingl, Oyster stews, eoffee and pie (oht fashioned kind) disappeared completely be- tween noon and two o'clock, " AuntSarab'a iloughuuts," " Aunt Jemima's puinpkin iie," etc., were all there, Thll lunch was snppleiuenteil by serving ooffee and sand wlcnea between iive and six o'clock. Noth- ing was left wben the fair closed, except a few dolls aml the remains of a ham san.t Wlch. We almost forgot to mention one of the most Important lnoldenta of the fair, the voting of a negro doll to E. O. Hyde, as the handsomest man in the Unitarian church. It was a happy chotoe, Friday evening, BowelU' farce, " The Albany De pot," was presented. Those people who inslst on tindiug Howells entertaining en Joyed the literary qnailtlei of the farce, but most of the audfenoe expended thelr pralae 1 011 the care and pains which tlie young BC ! tors devoted to thelr ralber tedloui mate rials.

Tlie boys say the girls did better tban they dld, ao we will take tbeir word for it. A wkll-known tigure passed out of tlie aotive bualneaa life of Montpelier, on De. oember 1, when Storrs 1.. Howe turned ov.-r his bOOkl and papers to E. W. Thompson, and retired as statiou agent at Montpelier j for tho Central Vermont railroad. Mr. Howe was born in Royalton, Deceinber 7, : 1820, and apent his boyhood on a farm, Montpelier lirst knew him in s.Y, when ho ' was installed as clerk at the station under 1 John W. Hobart, his brotber-ln-law, an,l until reoently the general manager of the road. Four years later, Mr. Hobart was 1 called to blgher honori, aml Mr. Howe su - i b d him as station agent. The Watch- man representative ohnted with Mr. Howe, reoently, at his pleasant home on Bahlwin street. Away from the hustle of the town, ! it alTorded a qnlet that was always con , genlal to Mr. Howe'a nature, and also to the taste of the late Prloolpal Gorhain, who 1 amiably Iniilted 011 boarding with him toi several years. Mr. Howe, deiplte bil J teventy-one years, ia still a vigorous man. His blue eyes smiled henignly upon tbe writer in respouse to an Inqulry as to tlie 1 ubangea which time bad wrought during his tenureof tbe statiou Sgenoy bere. " Yes, there has been a greal transfo'rmation during ine past nurty years, sanl .Mr. Howe. "The Btation and its snrroundings aro very different from what they were when I hegati work as a clerk under Mr. Hobart. Tben the track ran where the gentlemen's walting-room and the baggage-room are now sitnated. In KS11 the passenger sta tion was remodeled and the present com modlonj qaarteri obtained. Iu my early days at the station. Montpelier was the big geal sbipping station 011 tbe road. It was ihe oentral point for all the country roun I about. aud all tbe week long there rolled IntO Montpelier a constant Itream of four, six aud eight-horse teams. The hiiilding of ibe White Kiver brauch aml the Montpelier Wllll River railronl naturally cut int.) this heavy busiuess, but the great lumher aud graniie imluatries of recent yeara have enabled Montpelier not only to hold her own, but to lucrease. State street looked more like the main thoroiighfare of a new Weatem tOWD tban tbe weU-bnllt, thriviug atreet that now greets tbe vlsltor to tho capital. There were no towerlug iusurancit buildings to impresa him, no imposing fed eral buililing; ihe old Pavil'on was rather iuferior in appearauce to the present haml aome hotel; ihe Episcopal church had not been orected; while the old poit-offlOO blOOk and other busineas atructiirea were as yet 111 the fatOre." Mr. Howe's home life is very pleasant, and Ihe autumn of his life is still goldeu. A OOUrteOOJ gentleman, a good cltlzen, aud a thoroiigh home raan, ho is respecteil by all his fellow-residenta at Vermont's capital. Ciiahi.ks II.
