Colonel Levi K. Fuller. Levi K. Fuller is a self-made American citizen of the best type. Born in West moreland, N. n., February Ma 1841, bis parents, of English and German stock, re moved in lXi.'i to Witidhain couuty, Vermont, wbere, at the age of thirtecn, the boy set out to make bis own way in the world witb a silver qnarter in bis pocket. He attended the High Scbool at Bellows Falls and Brattleboro, workcd at the trade of a printer and learned tilegrapby. At slxteeu, having developed an aptltude for me chanics, he won a pretnium for a Bteam engiue improvemeiit at the Windham County Agrlcultural Society's fair. Going to Boston be served an apprenticeship as a machinist, acting for a time as a nigbt telegraph operator at the Merchant's Ex change. During a great portinu of bis residence iu Boston, he also took a sclen tlflc courso at the evening scbools. Keturning to Brattleboro in 1800, he euterod the Estey Works a machinist and mechanical eugineer and later established a uia- ohlna ibop of bis own, Bnannfaotntlng wood-worklng and otber maohlnary success- fully. Iu April, 1806, be entered, with Colonel Estey, the flrm of J. Estey & Co., (now the Estey Organ Company), Ittparintanding the manufacturing ilepartment, and for twenty years has been vice-president of the company. IIIs relatlons wlth the employaa of the EBtey Company, whethcr in the fornier or latter capaclty, bave al ways been most cordial, and the attitude ol Colonel Fuller and bis partners towards amployad labor bave donbtlaaa proran one very safe solution of the vexed ipiestion of "Capital and Labor." He is an active member ol the American Soeiety for the Advancement of Science and of tbe Aniorican Soeiety of Mechanical F.nglneers, is also interested in astrouotny, has an observatory of hls own and the tinest (qnatOTlal talaaoopa in Vermont.

His jnivate business has not preveuted bim from partlcipatlng active ly in pnbllc affairs, botb local and state. He has held im portant town and village ollices. In 1880, he was elected to the state senute, takiug an active part in the important leglslation of tbat session, iucluding what was tbeu known as the "new tax law," a measure teuding to eipialize tbe burden of taxation and proving satisfactory to the people. Iu 1888, he was elected lieutenant-governor, BUing tbat position with credit to bimself and bonor to the state, proving himself one of tbe best equipped presiding ofticers the senate has had. His interest in educational matters is well known. To Saxtons lliver Academy he has given largely botb of time and money, and, under his management as president of the board of trustees, it has taken high rank with institutions of its kind in New Englaud. He bas always been practically interested in agriculture and tbe developiuent of tbat brauch of Ver mont's iudustries. His put cbase of a farm and preaentlng tbe same to Vermont Academy, introduction of tine-bred sbeep and otber stock, and the inauguration of new features in connection witb practlcal farm educational work, bas attracted wide atteution. He is a well-rounded, capable, public-spirited cltlzen, with an eye for the welfaro of all classes. By the grace of tbe republicans of Vermont tliis self-made man, tbis architect of bis own fortuno telegraph boy, mecbanic, developed into a broad-minded citizen, a cultured gentlemau, a man of high aud philanthropic purpoaea, using liberally the fortuue he has acquired for tbe good of tbe people of his state (and particularly tbe youtb of the state), witbout dlatlnotlon of i lass or sect tbis man will be the next governor of the Green Mountain State. Tbere is everything in what Colonel Fuller has been, in what he has done and is capable of doing, to inspire the zeal of every voter and bring bim to the pulls to crown tliis wortby man 011 his entry to the vesti bule of the otlice of chief executive witb as strong a title to bis ottiee as has been vouchsafed to any of bis predecessors.
