The farmers are hocomlng discouraged about hoeing. The ralns continue to fnll and many farmers have not hoed a hill. The prospect now is not good for doing It very soon. Many pleces of grain are nearly ruined by water. Corn Is late, but is of good OOloti and If we could have a few days of sunshine and warmtli It would go right lODg, The prospect ls good for a full average crop of hay, but huying miist be pottponed untll hay weather, and the hoe ing go by default. It is a disgrace to our town that so niuch dniiikenneHS is seen nearly every day on the streets In our village. The llquor is ex pressed in or obtained from town agents in towna not many miles away. It is hrouglit in and distrlbuted among tbe rum men, and even the young boys get it.

' Dr. Leonard Graves arrived from New York, last Thursday, and has assumed his duties as assistant physician at the asylum. He will keep his home at the Graves house on North Main street. A terrible storm was in progress duriug the funeral services of the late Levi Graves, last Thursday afternoon. Yet a goodly number were present to pay a tribute of respect to one hald in universal esteem. Some of the farmers have l)een quite dis couraged over the lack of opportunity for labor, through the nearly constant rains, butthegrass, grain and cereal crops have been making rapid growth during the last three weeks. Several of the inmates of the asylum have been discharged as cured, and others are making rapid progress toward recovery. The out-of-door exercise and larger liherty accorded has had very henetlcial results. Great care is taken, however, to allow no liherties but what are consistent with per fect safety to the townspeople. Miss Mabel Palmer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Palmer, died of consumption on Friday, at the age of nearly eighteen years. A year ago in May these bereaved parents laid their eldest daughter, Miss Annie, to rest. Both were heautiful girls, of lovely character. Their untimely decline 1111s many heart with sadness,' and sympathy deep and geueral is felt for the' attlicted family. Funeral services were held at the house on Sunday afternoon, Rev. L. H. Wheeler officiating, assisted by Revs. A. B. Truax and W. R. Davenport. In the death of Levi Graves, the whole commuuity mourns the loss of an honored, upright citizen. After a brief lllness he p issed away from us, on the morning of June 28, in his seventy-sixth year. We know not how much we owe to the hard working, patient men and women whose lives are full of loving toil. What relmke toour pride and false amhitlon is the quiet, peaceful lifeof one who simply seeks to do his part at home, true to his neighbor and to his God. About two months ago his younger brother, Cecil Graves, was buried; now leaving but one, the last of a largo housobold of strong Christiau men who have done much iu sileut and unseen ways to mould the character of the commuuity in which they have lived.

A thresher tells us there is prumlse of crops so larg., hereahouts, that the barus will hardly slore them, and much of the threshing will likely bedone iu thu tields. BOOM one was bantOMling to us tlie ahuse of a horse, on Friday last, by some Barre cbaps, who were ilriviug hereahouts. But why not use the lash of the law upon the blped brutes? Conceruing the decline in prices of watches, iu the last twenty years, a dealer tells us that a certain movement he once paid S54." for, he now huvs for 8l(i. Other moveiueuts that he then paid S1U to $18 for he now gets for 8i; and this from improved methodsof manufacture and com petitlon in business. A question of general interest to the pub lic arlses lu connection with the receut fire here. Who must sustaln the loss of the burned horses that had been taken into the livery and feed barn the nlght of the fire? the exact olnt heing what constltutes " due care " on the part of the proprietors of the stable, as we understand it. Slx union granlto cutters have started In business for themselves, In the railroad had. with Will Young as sharpener, Another lot of them are planntng for a stock company, to commence work as soon as possihle. These three new tlmis will be known a Dow & Huntcr, Murray & Moore, and the Edwards Brothers four of them. Some artlcles of housebold furnlturo come to he amusingly deslgnated, betimes. An heirloom in a family here is known as " the spanking triink." Years ago it occupled the end of a small closet to which the ohll dren were sent to " refiect " after various COrpOreal punllhmenU, In another family Is another closet, slinilarly furnlshed, to whlch the mother hetakes herself in thun-iler-ntorius, and the trunk has been dubbed " tho thunder trunk." A friend In the West, who is consldering the matter of a Barre granite nionument, wrltes of the dlfilculty experlenced iu get ting at the facts conceruing the material. Tho lctter reads: "One man showed us a very llght gray as Barre granite; another man .showed a very dark gray as Barre granite; and still another said the best Barre granite was red, and showed us a speclmen of it." The case of the last man Is easily read. It must be one of " color-blindness, Mpeolally in dilOOVering shades of trutb. Less than thirty years ago one of our ac quaintances went West from Vermont with his family. taking 8000 with him. As a far mer he has been very snccessful. This is his view of what a wideawake, capahle man can do out there. For Instance, he says: " I have a farm I can take .$12,000 for, a'ny day. If such a man as Ispoke of, having some fivo horses, seven or eight cows, fif teen swine for breeding purnoses, and suf ficient farm machinery, would buv my farm for $12,000, running into debt for every dol lar of it at six per cent interest. in six vears' time he would be beyond my power to hurt him; for he would then have no trouble ln hiring any money needed to pay the regt of his indehtedness to me." The Fourtli was ushered in here with a continuance of the rain of the last weeks, and the midnight ringing of bells and firing of cannon, that such is the Hight of time seemed but the echoes of events of one or two scores of years ago. In the forenoon it cleared off, and sky, earth and air were pro pitious. The South hill enllvened the morn ing hour with a mounted procession of hor ribles that was comical enough. The atten tions of the place were dlvided largely be tween the attractlons ofTered by the farm Ing community on the South hill and those of Barre. With many there will be no question which of the twain will be the more patriotlc, healthf ul and elevating, with the fewest sad memories in the days to come. An extract from a letter on our table, just received, may prove of vital interest to some young man without means, who is wanting a collegiate education. The writer, aScotch man, and an old school friend of ours, in the early sixties, is now a prominent Con gregational clergyman in one of the well known college towus of the country. With intirm health, as we knew him, he fought his own way through school and college, without auything to help him. Speakiug of this subject, he wrltes that he has seen so many in the last twenty years beginning a course of study without much means, aud coming out all right, that he feelssuiea capahle young man with grit and the truest principle ueed never hold back for want of money. A Grand Army post was organized here, last Thursday afternoon, at the town ball. Oelegations from Barre, Northfleld, Bethel and South Royalton were present. (J. Bean, road-master for the Central Vermont Rail road Company, was master of the ceremo nies. In the first ballot for a name for the post, tbe choice seemed to be between Wells, Martiu and Lvnde reference heing had to the late General William Wells of Burlington, the late Lieutenant W. Henry Martin. and Charles Lvnde of this place. The second ballot deotded it as "Wells." The post starts out with ten memhers a nuiiiberof our veterans having previonsly joited other posts. The latter, however, are likely to eonnect themselves with Wells post at an early day, The occasion was a very pleasant one. The following is the latest phase of the granite trouble hereahouts: Last week there was posted iu this place a clrCUlM prepared by tbe three bundred aud eighty one tirms of the New England Association, pledging protectlon to any and all work men who would returu to work. Whlle no other terms are olTered or asked, a member of the association tells us It is understood that " the manufacturers are willing to give work h.v the old hill of prices," thougb he thinks it more than can well be afforded. Will any or many of the workmen return.' Naturally the Granite Cutters' Union will strain every nerve to prevent it, and prol ably notliing but direst necessity will cause many to go bick, such is tbedread of the average workmau of heing " scabbed " by the Union. Up to last week, it is said that of the two months' pay due the workmen, ouly six dollars had been paid all arouud, though some had received twelve and more, according to individual necessities. Seen ln all its bearings, then, this contest is a tremendous and a sad one, each side feeling that the issue of it is a matter of life or death to them, and we are sorry for.the one who witnesses it with any other feeling than nialiee toward neither Bide, and charity for both. Even then the subject will tax the wisdoin of the wiseBt. But wherever the line of exact right should be ilrawn, the public here have souiehow come to feel that its Interests deuiand some cbange in the general condition of thlngs that has prevailed in the last few years. Mr. and Mrs. Aaro Nichols have just re turned from a visit of several weeks with friendB in Massachusetts. Clayton R. Ditty, a student at the Methodist Seminary.
