Many beautlful homes are to be fonnd
wlthin the borders of the village of Mont
pelier ln which tho community as a whole
takes prido, and which have holped ln no
small way to enhanco the reputation the
capital of the state enjoys as being one of
tho loveliest and most attractlve places In
New England. For thoroughness of con
structlou, convenlenco of arranRement, and
elegant, though botnellke, furnishlng and
equipment from basement to attlc, tho roal
dence of O. M. Fisher on Stato street,
erected during the past year, is excelled by
nono. A little moro than a year ago, Mr.
Fisher purchased the Sldney P. Redflold
property, movcd away the old bulldlngs
and latd the foundatlon of the homo ho oc
cuples to-day. The locatton of the houBO ls
unaurpassed. Situated just nt the bend of
the Winooski that has been reproduced
upnn moro than ono canvas by- artists of
noto, a charmlng view ls Jobtalned from the
front porch, or from almost any window ln
the house. Stately spreadlng elms dlrectly
in front of the house shado the front and
west side from the glarlng sun. Tho founda
tlons are of grauite, as are the walls above
grade as high as tho windows on tbo tirst
lloor, tho remainder of the superstructuro
belng of brick. Tho roof ls slated and fltted
with coppergutters. Entering through tho
front door, the hall and vestibule, both fin
ished ,in oak, first attract the eye. At tho
right of the hall is the slttlng-room,
fluished in ash, with a cosy circular win
dow that commands a view of the entire
street east. The llroplaco in this room is of
bronze-green tiling. At the left of tho hall
is the library and parlor, connected with
folding doors. Tho elegant furnishings
of theso rooms aro from tho Paino Furnl
turo Company and Keeler & Co., Boston.
Every window ln tbo houso Is fltted with
plato glass, and thu hamlsome stalr and
mantel work, dono by Jlr. Sanborn of West
Randolph, would bo hard to Improve upon,
The entiro houso ls wlred for electrlc lights
and niped for gas, both of which are used.
Tho gas flxtures aro from Waterbury &
MeKenna. Boston. The dinlng-room is
tinished in chorry. Under a rich-lookiug
inautel ls a nrepiaco oi tea-pot urown
tlie, which harmonizes perfectly wtth tho
cherry tlnlsh. Between tho diuiug.room
and kltchen, which ls llnlshed lu Georgia
pine, is the butler's pautry, fltted with
a porcelaln utsli.wnsher, with hot aml
cold water. Tho entranco from the west
slde of thu house ls from under a porte
corhere. Tho drlveway ls luld with cou
crete, as ls the lloor ot tho barn at tho rear
of thu house. Tho latter is tinished and
furnished in a way to suggest comfort for
dumb animals. A solld wall of graulto ls
lald at the rear of the barn, beyonil which
is a spring of cold water for drinklng and
cullnary inirposes, olovated onough so that
lt is pined to the second story of the house.
In tho basement is tho laundry with sot tubs,
coal liiiiH, etc , and the heatiug apparatus.
Thu houso is heated by the Spenee hot
water system, which works to perfectlon
and ln pralso of which Mr. Fisher caunot
say enough. The drnlnageof all tholmildliiBS
ta purfect. In addition to an tmlependeut
draiu to thu river, a lilintl dralu is lald eu
tirely nrouud the house aml under all tho
partttious, to tho maiu sewer. On thu second
story of tho houso ls tho Ilbrary chambur fur
nished lu hlack walnut, with open plumblng
ln this aml overy room. Tlie guest chainber
has mahogany furnlture, with white silk dra
peries.and hot and cold water. Across the hall
thu rooms of Mr. and Mrs. Fisher aro fltted
with beautlful bird's-oye maple furnlture,
with yellow silk drapiugs. At tho rear ls
tho bath-room, with porcelaln tubs, and
both spring and Berlin water. In tho attlc
Isthetank room, electriu light closut, fur
closut llned with cedar, truuk room, etc.
Whllo Mr. and Mrs, Fisher havo no deslre
to mako any ostentatlous dlsplay, the ma
terial put into tho bulldlug aud thu furnish
ings have been the best that money could
buy. Wherever lt was ln any way prac
tlcable, Mr. Fisher has patronlzed Mont
pelier merchants aud dealers, and has hlred
lils help right hero at home. Whllo Mrs.
Fisher iuodestly disclatms the credlt of tho
archltecturo of tho bullding, as awarded her
by her husband, the quiet and excelleut
taste shown ln the arrangement of overy
room that blemls ao perfectly Into a barmoni
ous whole, thu unexcelled sanltary arrange
meuts, and tho many convenleuces aud
luxuries that cannot bo onumorated lu this
brlef and imperfect descrintion of tholr now

guiding haud, fertilu braln and rellned
tasto, many things that now mlnistui' to
their comfort and happlness would havo
been forgotten, oven by so thoroughgolng,
nlert aml practlcal a buslness uinu us Mr.
Fisher is known to be.
