Prlor to the cruel dlBappolnt ment that ontered her young llfe she waa clerk in tbo atore ot O. II. Groag & Son. She waa marriod to Mr. Birtel in February, 1898. Sho boro her aflllctlon wlth a torti tude and cheerfulnoaa that gavo to her end all the triumnha ot a Ohriatlan'B victory over death. Slnce tho ahadow fell acrosa her pathway her endeavor haa seoined to be to prevent, ao far aa poaalble, burdenlng thoae neareat to her.

Wlth the Odd Fellowa' plcnlo at Waita fleld aa an objoctive point, and wlth a vlew to feeling the pulae of promiuent rofjldenta of Mad River Valley on eloctrlo road uiat ters, a Watcuman roporter left Montpelier oarly Tueaday mornlng for a tlylng trlp through that tertile region a trip that linp pily proved u comblnation of buaiueaa with pleaaure, with thu accent on tho pleaaitre. A fullroportof tho Odd FellowB1 flold day Ia printoil in another column. To that it ia uunoceaBary to add anythlng uxcopt to aay that thu rank declalon of Uiuplro Thayerof Warren In declarlng a Watorbury mau out at flrst in thu aovouth inning ot the baae ball game and for which tho Water bury teain left tho tleld and refuaed to fln lah tho game, waa not auatainud, uven by mombers of tho Warren team. They and their WaltBfleld frlenda declarethat the de cIbIou waa the ranksat they over kuew, and that Uiuplro Thayur ahould have had aand ouough to reverau auch a palpablu error. The Warren team wlll probably be pald tho 825, but thoy wlll not be partlcularly proud ot lt under the clrcumatancea, eapecially when they were practlcally auro of wiunlng the game on lta merits and tho money by out playing their opponentB. TIIB DllOUTH AND T1IB CIIOPS. Wlth tho reat of Vermont, Mad River valley ia aufTering from thu drouth. Mad River ia "mad" only in name, in fact lt now haa not tho proportiona of a reapect ablu trout brook. Bpringa that have not been known to fall for tho paat forty-llvo yeara are perfectly dry, and with tho oxcep llon of one mill at Moretown ownod by Ilon. II. O. Ward, hardly a wheol ia tum lng from Mlddleaox to Warren. Mlll own ers have diacharged or lald off their men, aud are waltlng for ratu, and lu mauy paa turea thero ia uo water for atock. Notwithstauding thla, thu valley from Moretown to Warren haa an appearanco of June freahneas. Corn ia looklng llnely.heavy crops of rowen are belng cut, and the meadowa wear a dark green hue auggeativo ot the uiouth of roaea. Thia Ia partlcularly notlceablu from Moretown to Waitalleld. A dozen or rnoro inquirlea by the roportor aa to the cauae of thia brought no aatiafac tory auswur. To be auru the aoil is deep and fertlle, neithor aandy nor lurgely of clay, but that hardly uccounta for thu freah appoarance of thoae rlch uieadow lauda while tho reat of cruatlon lu thla part ot Now England ia parched, brown and with ured by a drouth ot unprecedented dura tlon. On tbo river road, from Moretown to Warren la 500 acrea of ripeulng corn, wlth ubuut an cqual acreage of oata. Not an ucre of oata haa proved a fallnre aud not a fleld of corn but what glvea promlae of abundant harvoit. The hay orop waa uearly lt not qulto up to thu average aa to quality and quantlty, and potatoea aru yiulding guneroualy. Small wonder la it that tho proaperoua aud well to do farmera in thia aection have no deairu to change their location or their occupation. A VOICB KUOM FAYSTON. Siuce the proapecta for an electric rail road through thiB valley thia auinnier have, of late, been growing luaa, reports havu crept into somo of the Statu papera that the inhabitanta of Mad River valley havu thrown thu wholu thing overboard, that the sentiinont that was formerly anatronglyin favor of bullding auch a road ia now ad verau to It, aud tha thoy wuru ready to hound any man out of thu valluy who Bhuuld dare to talk eloctrlo road to them. To verlfy or dlaprovo auch general and sweeplug atatementa waa the aelf impoaed tusk of the Watcuman reporter. From hia long and faithtul servlco of Beventeen yoara as town clerk of Fayaton aud becauao of the fact that he la a large manufacturer of ahinglea aud clapboarda S. J. Dana la, perhape, aa well qualifiod to speak the aentltnentB ot that town aa any ono man. In reaponse to queatlons by the reporter Mr. Dana sald: "Wo are all inter eated In the road up thla way and we want to aee It bullt. Thla la thu thlrd time that we have been fooled about gettlng a road up through here and we aro getting dla couraged. But we need it. It coata sixty flve cents athouaand to get clapboarda from my mill on a car at Middlesex; lt we had an eloctrlo road we could for 85 per car, hire cara to load at Warren or Waitsfield that would carry from atxty to elghty thousand feet. Fayston voted to bond for 85,000 or flvo tlmes ita grand liat, and we have not changed our mtnda. Btlll I aui luclined to think that whon tho road ls bullt aa lt sure ly wlll be, It wlll be doue by prlvato enter prise." WAUIIKN IIKAUD FHOM Ilon. Horaco W.

Mr. Norton'a popularity, slnco ho was trlumphantly eacorted by hia townB mon to Statu Houae halla a year ago has not waned, and he haa apparently little cauae to be anxioua for tho luture. The atoru of O. G. Eaton la a buay place. Mr. Eaton'a trado in farmlug ImplemuntH, farni machlnery, hardware, llotrr and foed extends mauy miles beyond the bordurs of Waitalleld acd ia conatantly Increaaing. Tho general atore of F. A.

Some live or slx yeara ago the Watcuman man tnade a apecial trip to Waitsfield to "write up" the flrst crearnery bullt ln tho county. Thu crearnery buaineaa iu Mad River valley, aa elaewheru haa ceaaed to bu a novelty aud haa paaaed beyond the ex perlmental stage. One of the most aucceaa ful eatabllahmenta lu that aection ia thu Waitsfield Crearnery comnany. Thla was bullt in 1897 and opened for buslnesa In June of that year with twenty patrona. It now haa aeventy-two, ia taklng tho tnllk from 700 cowa, aud lta buslnesa ia Bteadlly Increaaing. B. L. i'alrner, formerly clerk for H. A. Bowman, Montpelier, la the but ter maker. They aro at prosent making 375 pouuda of butter per day, but ln tho good seaaon tbey average 500 pouuda dally. By paylng good prices from tho start thia crearnery haa helped tho farmera, evon thoau who aru not their patrona, by forcing compotltora to pay fair pricea. Hon. C. E. Jonea ls prealdont and treaaurer, and tho dlrectora are G. W. Wallace, O. C. Wilder, J. T. Palmer, and G. W. Folaom. TheBO oQlcers havu sorvcd contlnuously slnce thia crearnery waa opened for bualnoaa. The Gold Sprlug crearnery at Moretown ia another concern that haa "buccobs" wtitten in big lettora acrosa lta front door. Thla crearnery waa Btarted lu 1892. It now has flfty-four patronn, takes the milk from over 500 cowa and ia making over 325 pounda ot butter dally. In June 550 pounds per day waa averaged. FrumJan. 1, 1898 to Jan. 1, 1899, tbia crearnery mado about 90,000 pounda ot butter and for tho year ending next January wlll probably oxceed thu 100,000 pound mark. It Ib run by II. W.

Mr. Ward ofTered to glve outrlght to the Burlington partlos a site for a power plant, where hls mlll was burned, about balt way between Mlddleaox aud Moretown.

SURGERY BILL FOR A CAT. Tobby'a Xoic AVna Cyrnno ile IIltkc roc Ilullil nnil It Und to Ile Clinniri.'d- Timson, a large tortoise Angora cat, owncd by Mr&. Samuel Itawlcy, a wealthy woman, Hving on a farm about slx miles from St. Louis, had an opera tion performed on bis face recently, to tho like of which probably no eat ever before was subjccted. Tirnson was a feline Dc liergerac. All his nativc cbarm und beauty, his chiv alry and the courtly manncrs inherited from u proud, unbroken line of nn cestors, were spoilcd by a big ycllow smudge on his liose. For Timson to ussunie Beau Brummel airs with that plebeian ycllow nose was as absurdly iinpossible as Chuck Connors in an oiicra bat. If science, through the agency of dcrmatology, eould'retnove the blemlsh, it should be rcmovcd. Correspondence was opcncd with a prominent surgeon, and nfter tho nature of the blemlsh had been minutely deseribed to him he con sentcd to remove it, nnd suggested that Timson be forwarded to his clinie in New York. After examination of tbe stricken nose the doctor announccd that elec tricity was the only mcans which could be employedi to remove the tortoisc hued hair, and that nfter it had been taken out the nose would have to be blistered slightly to insure that the hair would grow in white. The clectrical ncedlcs, he ndmltted, would be more or lcss painful, and nfter watehing his paticnt sinking his long elaws into his blanket and then draw them out, as though toV;ep him self ln training, be declded to ndmin ister au anesthetic. After Timson had succumbed to its influence the ncedlcs were applled and one by one the disfiguring hnim were removed. As the patch eovered more thau two inehcs on cach side of the nose, the opcration was necessarily n long nnd tedious one, nnd it was more than nn hour before it wns eompleted and Timson was brought to. A llght bllster was applied then, and the paticnt put to bed. The cxperiment was a great success. No complicntions get in, nnd beyond an nnnoying irrita tion caused by the blistcr Timson suf fered no inconvenlenoe. He wns around agaln in two or three days, and already a soft white down has taken the plnce of tlie ugly blotch. The operation, in eluding the feo and the doctor's ex penses, nmountcd to $90. N. Y.

Labori continued to bait Gonao, saying generala muat ana wur for tho crooked ncts of eubordi natea. Gonse intimated that othora woro involved. "Whom?" Bhouted Lubori. "Thero aro too many veiled ladies, arwnymous pcraona in thia casc" Gonse's roply was evaeive. He claimed that dccrecy waa neceasary, but men tioned do Clara, Henry and General Souasier aa some otbers. "Exact'v," said Lubori; "but who gave them or dora?" Gonae'a answer waa evaeive. Hennes, Aug., 24. Court opened at 0.30 uud the regiatror road the de poaition of M. Deniea Renot, who aought to exculpute Col. Sandherr of any wronf; and alBorefuted Eutorhazy'a ataiemeut that Sandherr ordered hiia to writo tho bordereau. George Lelr.ir fl itly contradicted the teatimony of De Uruil given yeaterday. Colonel Mauriel, preaident of the court which convicted Dreyfua iu 1894, aaid that ho waa sure then aa now that Dreyfua waa guilty. He aaid tbut he had aeen only ono of the documenta of the aecret doaaier. "Which one?" aak ed Labori. The witneaa pleaded Be crecy nnd anid Genoral Mercier proba bly knew moro about it thnn he. La bori acized the chancc and recallcd Mercier. Mercier waa in full uuiform. Labori queationed him relative to hia part in bringins the aecret evideuce before the first court martial without the knowledge of the accuaed. Mer cier begun to anawer frankly aud pleaaantly,. but soon loat hia temper, when Labori grew more relentleaa, and aeemed as if it muat bo a peraonal en counter, "Dld you order that secret doisier to bo presented to tho llrat court martial?" aaked Libori. "Yea, I tako entire reaponaibility," replied Mercier. "At tho time tho priaoner was arrcsted I waa tnere other ovidence ngatnat him uesiaes tbo bordereaur" aaked Labori. "Yea." "Then why wero these proofa concealfd from tho Preaident of France?" Mercier hotly refuaed to anawer. "Why did you arreat Drey fua flrat?" "Becauae of tbe greatness of the treaaon in quration." "Did you read tho article in Lt'bre Paroie in Octo bor, 1894, aayinc that Dreyfua was ar rested becauao "tho Generala were hot aftor tho JewB and detcrminod to rid tho army of them?" "I never follow the paper. Thoro waa never anv auch propagand again8t tho Jewa." Labori siioed that tho article had been writ ten by ColOuol Henry. Lubori then queationed Mercier about the contents of the bordereau. Mercier Baid Dreyfua was in a poai tion to doliver tho documonta named. Preaident Jouaust tried to check the repititiou of old teatimony when La bori, referring dramatically to tho ahot which had cauaed him to be abaent from court, inaiated on full examina tion. He then aaked Mercier ahout the thirty-five million franc ayndicate to free Dreyfua. Mercier anawered: "Geu. Defreycinet told me formally of the esiatenoo of thia sjndicate," La bori: "How, formally?" Mercier pro tceted ugainat the lawyer'a manner, aying ho was not the accuaed. Hennes, Aug. 24 Labori demanded tho meaning of the red pencil marka on pieccB of the doaaier. Mercier, Gonae, Roset, Louth und Gribelin all bagan storming at once, and when Gon8e ehouted that Henry had written them, asmile went over the court room. Major Carriore protested that all of Henry's thinga were -not forgeriea. Mercier ngain loat his temper whon Labori referred to him aa De Clam'a apokeaman. Dreyfus nrose und era phaaized tho point that secret ovidence had been given against him ut tho for mer court martial. Ho exclalmed that only tho bordereau was sbown him on that occaaion. Gen. Riaburg, preaont at Drovfua' degradation, gavo hia ideaa why Droy fua "waa guilty. Thia caused Dreyfua to riao and in another outburat, cry out: "Phrnaea aro valueleaa, bring proofa, proofa I" Mojor Curo, detailed by Picqunrt to inveatigato Eatorhazy's charactor, tcatiQod an unfavorablo re port that Esterhazy wns ulways. having thinga copied.
