Did you ever look at it in this light? Between two days you become unassurable. One day you are assurable the next you cannot secure assurance at any price. This is true not alone of you, but of every man. There comes a time in his life when, between two days, he becomes unassurable. Do you know when your day will come? Do you know that it isn't to-day? You may have assurance less than a year ago perhaps only a month ago and yet you may be unassurable to-day. You passed the medical examina tion then possibly you couldn't do it now.

Mr. Lamson also clalma in bia motlon that un der exlatlng laws. a highway cannot be lald acroas a rallroad at grade, and that this questlon must flrst be declded by tho rall road commlssioners. It la also claimed that not only the publlo good and prlvate con vonlence for sucb a highway mustbe ebown, but tbat the absolute necossity for sucb a road and bridgo mutt bo made clear. Judgo Start will probably rulo on Mr. Lamson'a motlon aomo time during tbe presont term of Washington county court, and lt the mo tlon to rr commlt the report to tho commis aloners prevalls the old straw must agaln be tbreshed. In the meantlme the Pioneer and South Main street bridgeaaccommodato publlc travel. Following tbese exceptlons by tho rallroad came the clty of Montpelier, tbrough Clty Attorney F. P. Carleton with an exceptlon that bids fair to vitiate the en tlro work of tbo commlssionors. Attorney Carleton clalms that H. W. Nlcbola, of Middlesex, who sat on the commlsslon with W. P. StalTord of St. Johnsbury and Leroy Kent of Calais waa never appointed by tbo court for thla posltlon, but that H. B. Nichola, the Middlesex merchant was tho man named by Judge Munson; tbat H. W. Nlcbola ia also lncapacitated to alt ln sucb a commlsslon because ot hia relations with tho petltloners; that tbe petltlon was vold because of its having been brought under the wrong atatuto. and that tho report abonld be rejected because it sbows sucb a multipllclty ot dangera ln tbe propoaed crossing of railroada. Judge Stari'a reply to all tbese exceptionB will be awaited with much intereat. It Ia an undlsputed fact that tbo court intended to appoint H. B. Ntchola, the represontatlve from Middlesex in tho Ieglalaturo of 180C, aa a member of the commlaaion, and lt was auppoaed that he bad been appointed until H. V. Nlchols appeared and took hia placo witb the other commlssioners. At the samo time tbe lat ter was regularly appointed, although bo waa unknowu to the court or the partlen at Intereat. Tbls leaves the case at present very much ln a muddle. Iu Meuiorlam, At a meeting of tho school board held last Saturday ovening, T. C. Phinney, Tliomaa Marvin and J, A. DeBoer, the committee ap- tointed to draft resolutious on the death of Dr. I. G. Kcmp, for many years secretary of the board, reported tbe following, wlnch wero unanimously adopten: Tho school commissioncrs for tho City of Montpelier and the trustees of tlio Washington County Grammar School record with great ro gret the death ofDr. Dean G. Kemp, tho lato secretary of this board. Our duty, here, dooa not reiiuiro of us that detailed recognition of his professioual and publie services, which their conspicuous quality. merit and deserve. But wo have worked witli liim so longandever found him so ready to tho task, that it would bo uunatural if wo did not bear testimony to tlio estcem in which we hold the man and his work. His professional services, on account of tiioir long contimianco and skill, in this community, at least, havo seldom been equalled or surpass ed. To natural capacity for tlio scienco and art of medicino, be adiled careful preparation for its practico, and all this was supplemented by sucb unreruitting toil from day into nigbt nnd into dav again that f ow men can be said to have introduced their services into moro honica tliroiiRliout this section. No mau was so poor, no cali so untimely, and 110 distant, cross country rido so laborious that it found him either unwillinir or unready to respond in tho spirit of hia lugh professional oath. In all kinds of weather, over all kinds of roads, in sunshine or storm nnd year after year, ho mado his way to the bedsido of the sick. It was tho ruark of tho man that he did this up to tbe very eud of bis own life, caring for othersa when ho himself was very ill and oftentimes in greater need of the pliysician than tho patient whom ho servcd. He did his work checrfully, wisely and well. Measured by any standard of effectivo results, liij contribution to tho health, comfort nnd liappiness of tlio town and country in which be toiled was unspeakably great. And it must givo to him in tlio professional annals of this section n doservedly highand honorablo rank. In his capacity as citizen, Dr. Kemp, for many years, was an earnest, honest, straight forward momber of tbia board. He was nover absent from ita meotings, oxcept for serious canso, and never present that he did not faith- tully accept lus tull sliaro 01 1113 responsibuities and constnntly act, according to his judgmont, to provido oflicient scbools. Many a timo has ho been summoned from its meetings to respond to n call tor professional servico, wiucli, bavmg di3charged, lio would promntly return to hia seat to discliarge his publio duty tbero. Wo desiro to expres3 tlus tact ot our appro ciation and to record his death. at the close of his loug kept records, ns a losstohis profession, to our city and our scliools. Chelsea, Lena E.
