AroLLiNARis, the famous table water, has found a rival for popular favor in the Eipilnox Spring water, Manchester, Vt., and good judges pronounco in favor of tho Equinox in preference to any imported water. Three kinds are bottled, the " nat ural," the "sparkling" and "sparkling ginger chainpagne." All are certainly waters that are exceedingly delightful, particularly the sparkling kinds, the hase of which is natural spring water carefully carbonated. Tho water ls slightly alkaline and of wonderful purity. The spring is git uated about 1,500 feet abovo the village of Manchester in the heart of tho Eiiiinox Mountain. The valuable curative qualities of the water have been but recently dis covered, and they are especially elllcacious in kidney troubles, dyspepgla, gout, rbeu" matism, etc. But the water is a most agreeahle beverage whether or not one is atllicted with any of the ills of the rlesh. As a table water it is not surpassed by any foreign or domestic. Rolfe & Slade in this village have the tbree kimls of this water, and it is earnestly commended to the favor of those who use mineral water of any kind. The "ginger chainpagne" is a particularly delightful and invigorating beverage the purest and best ginger tonic. Montpelier nnl Vlefnit). Mrs. Theron Bailey of Milwaukee is ex pected here to-day.

To many suffering people the noises that smote tbe alr on Saturday, Sun day and Monday nights is lingering death. If there is any virtue in municipal power it should be employed to limitand coutrol this barbaric revelry, if it cannot be entirely abolisbed.

Date of frost, the 1 1th. Barrino the traditional nocturnal racket, Montpelier had a qniot Fourth. Tho laying of the corner-stone of the Cathollo ehnroG was tbe event of the day. A few rockets, rotnan candles aml many and various-cali-bered crackers wore fired ofT Monday night, and "sonorous metal " blowing diabolic sounds disturbed tho peace till mldnight. The beneflt of the late enforcement of the prohibitory law was visible and gratifyiug. Many persons went to Barre. The order tbroughout the day was excellent, and not an arrest was made. One or two slight ac cidents have been roported. George But terfly's right hand was seriously injured hy tho exnloslon of a giant cracker, and L. C. Stone liad his lashes burned and oneeye in jured by an explogion. Theue are some thlngs that have a greater projeetile force than even Biirlin pond water doploving through a gardon-hose. One of these is acannon flre-cracker; but itis souie timeg inclined to proiect itself baekwards. An ardent young patriot invested a small fortune in one of these explosives of giant si.e, on Haturday. The Declaration of In dependenco was adopted on the second dav of July, and the ardent young patriot pro posed to celebrato the day the deed was done. The cracker was lald out upon tbe lawn at a safe distance, tired, and tlie lookers-on with suspended breatb awaited the explosion. The splrit of '70 was in the red missile. It blew up, but it kicked, too kicked itself through a plate-glass window, ruined the curtains and created bavoo gen eral ly. And now the ardent patriot is look ing for some one to turn the hose on bim again to quench his flery zeal. Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Blackwell received their friends informally at their home on Main street, between seven and eleven o'clock last week Thursday evening, that day being the fiftieth anniversary of tbeir marriage.

The ceremouy of laying the corner-stone of the new St. Augustine church ou Barre street took place Mouilay afteruoou iu tbe preseuce of a large number of lnterested spectatorg. The weather was, fortunately, exceptionally favorable to the exercises. A lloor had beeu lald level with the top of the foundatlon walls, and on this seats had been placed. Tho greater part of the au dlence llltened to tho exercises from this convenient positlon. The walls were dec orated with DOnghl of cedar, and the awn ing beneatb whi. h the olergy sat and spoke was also adorned with green, as well as with tlags and strips of bright-colored ma terial tastefiilly entwined and featooned. Tbe exercises were preceded by a street pa rade of 8t. Jean Baptisto societ v and others of the church, the Montpelier Militarv band beading the colnmn.

Some ten years ago an inter sting family went from Montpelier to swoll the ranks of the great artny of Ver monters in the West. Margaret Reed, child of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Reed, was the youngest member of the family. She was a winsome chick; tbe suns of four hright summers spanned her life and wrougbt their gladsoine light into the artless smile and inerry laugh and captivating way. This was tbe little lassie whom friends and nelghbors kissed a loving adieu ten years ago, and hers is the image that rises before the eyes of the greater number of her father's anil her motber's Montpelier friends when Margaret's name is spoken, for she had never revisited the place of her birtli, aud only a few had known her in her girlhood years. The painful intelligence was recently received that the disease that a few months ago extingtiished the bright ligiit of the life of an elder sister, Miss Ntrllie, had laid its dread hand upon Marga ret, ano sorrow ueep and tender came to all this oomtnunlty when the announcement was made that, on Saturday. the second in stant, she also had yielded up her young life to the fatal typhiis. On Tuesday noon the family brougut the broken link of the ohain that had hound fond hearts together to lay it away in the peaceful precincts of beautiful Green Mount cemetery. A large processiou of sympathetic friends accom panied tbe sorrowing group. Tender were the memories awakeneil as the cortege passed under tlie arching olms beneath whose branches Margaret had played away ber childhood bours, by the house which had been her childhood home. The preacher spoke words of Christiau cbeer for the broken hearts. Above tbe calm of the blue skies, all around the sunlight of a perfect summer day, the leaves murmuring sooth ing lullabies, the birds singing of hope and joy, roses breatbing their sweet incense so Nature reinforced the teachings of the man of God and minlstered to hearts all crushed and bleeding.

Thk " practical appointment " of Colonel J. H. Goulding of Rutland as secretary of civil aml mlUtary alTairs by Colonel U Iv. Fuller was anuouuced by the Rutland . r ul't, last week. The Brattlelioro Phanta has this to say of the auuoiinceiuent ; " In announcing the engagemeiit of Colonel J. II. Qouldlng to enter tho employ of the Hste Drgan Company at Brattleboro the Rutland IhmUi makes the erroneous state ment that Oolonel Goulding has been vir tually appointed secretary of civil aud mil ilary atTalrs in advanee by Colonel Fuller. The fact is simply that on account of Colonel Fuller's large business iuterests Colonel Goulding will act as his private secretary, a positlon for which he is adniir ably quahtled. Further than this, it is to be said that Colonel Fuller will make no promises, pledges or anuounceiueuts with regard to any otliclal position until the proper time arrives, after his election and Introduction to oilice.
