A be- ginning has been niade but thero is jio such thing as real industrlal traln- ing in the schools of any town in tho State, while the chlldren who coine under the censure of the laws havc an advantage over those who remaln n the paths o rectitude.

If Montpelier ls to bulld a High School bulldlng it ls to bulld for half a ccn tury at lcast, pcrhaps longor. It would bo a scrlous mlstako then to pcrmit projudlco or temporary dls satlsfaction to stnnd in tho way. of puttlng up such a bulldlng as tho clty nccds on such a locatlon as secins most dcslrablc. Tho Clty Councll has borgained for, lf ln fact it has not bought, a plot of land for a High School bulldlng, on the exact spot where lt was instructcd to purchasc by a speclal clty meetlng called to dccldo that very mattcr. It has actcd as the agcnt and carrlcd out tho Instructlons of Its prlnclpal. It would be a pecullar and plcayuno pro ceedlng for the prlnclpal now to dls avow tho act of lts agent and refuso to confirm tho bargaln. There ls not a Illgh School ln New England so widely known as tho Montpelier High School. I happen to know that referenco to its activitles has reachcd as far as San Franclsco and that ln Hong Kong, Honolulu and Johanncsburg Its progressive metlv ods and unusual activitles havo been subjects of favorable coninicnt. Every taxpaycr knows that on tho vote of Tuesday ln rolatlon to the school houso depends the cducatlonal pro- gress of the clty for tnc next twenty' flve years. Does any taxpayer belleve that ho can afford to out off his nose and the noses of hls chlldren and grandchlldren, to splte hls own faco? Montpelier ls the capltal of tho State and it ls due to itself that it hold a high positlon in cducatlonal matters as It does ln other affalrs of popular concern. Thls is the best, most effjciently and most economl cally governed clty In the State. It ought to be the leatling clty ln all other respects. Montpelier spent more than thrce quarters of a mllllon ln ald of the bulldlng of a rallroad that has been of no speclal benelit to the town. lt can easily, for a sinall fraction of that cost, erect such a school building as lt needs. "I haven't got a chlld ln school," sald a man well past slxty to me, "but I want every chlld to have a good chanco in tho schools. I know that when I was gettlng what cducation I havo that the Montpelier schools wero the best about here and I know that a dozen years ago or so they had fallen far ln the background. I can see from tho reports and my own ob servatlon, that they are golng ahead agaln, and I'll be wllllng to pay an extra ten cents on the dollar to hold up the reputatlon of Montpelier." Now I wonder whether tho majority will havo that much clvic pride or will regard more thelr own pocket books and thelr own prejudlces. The St. Albans Messenger, looklng at the formatlon of a Woman's Club in Montpelier wlth a dopartment of doinestlc sclonce, remarks that the men of St. Albans mlght have a do partment of that sort installed ln thelr schools lf they deslred lt. I note thatata moeting of the doinestlc sci- ence department of the club last week two of the best cooks in Montpelier demonstrated the manufacture of di- vinity fudge and tomato rarebit. Good things, both of them. I know they wero good, for Mrs. Puffer and Mrs. Ilerry niade them. But such thlugs have nothing to do with donie!--tic sclence. They are the belles lettres of tho kitchen. Far bo It from me to critlcise the doings of such an aggre gatlcn as a Woman's Club, but a merc male may be pormltted to but In witU the suggestlon that they bcgln wlth the prluiary closses. I an not talklng about tho schools now. I know half a dozo.ii at least of good womeu in Montpelier, good housekcopers too, who can't niako good bread, and not only that, but know ind adm'.t that they can't makc it. Thoro Is plenty of opportunlty for :i AVonian's Club in town, and it is not for nie to polnt out lts activitles, but I feol certaln that lts best efforts can not bo cxpended In tho way of dhin ity fudgo and tomato rarebit. Plalnly speaklng, I want to warn tho woiiien lnterested ln such things that they should lct such things as rarebits alone. There are more good rarebit niakors among the men than among the women. I would bo wlll lng to wager soniethlng on tho prop osltlnn, but I would not be wllllng to bo tho judge. i ani gettlng old enough to havo sonie regard for my stouiach. Immcdlatcly followlng niy sugges tlon last week that tho Stato mlght well afford to hiro a houso for tho uso of I-egislatlvo comnilttces appear od a report of tho uso by tho Legts lature of Malne of tho old Dlalno nianslon In Augusta for offlclal pur poses. The Malno Leglslatura uses tho Dlalno manslon closo by tho Cap Itol, and makes good uso of lt. In fact lt is dlfflcult to sco how the Malno Loglslaturo could go on wlth its work ln proper manner lf lt dld not oecupy tho Dlalno houso, I ani not a real estato agont and havo no lntoreat in DOUSYOUIt IJAOK ACHUI If it does you should know that backncho ls generally causcd by weak or dlsoased kldnoys. A medlclno call ed "Kldncts" has all Its lngredlents prlnted on tho label so that evoryono may know just what Ib In lt. It Is the great kidney and bladdor medlclne. It stops freiment urlnatlon. Drugglsts and dealers sell It for COc. tho dlsposal of any real cstate, by rent or purchasc, and thercforo rc fraln from suggcstlng any speclal houso for that uso by tho Vermont Leglslaturc, but 1 know, and every man famlllar wlth conditlons at tho Stato Houso for tho last dozen years knows, that tho Stato mlght savo money by spcndlng money in rent. Wasn't tho clty caucus last week an oxccllent lllustratlon of tho Montpelier splrlt? Dallot aftcr ballot for Mayor and other offlccrs nud not tho sllght est bad feellng nt tho closo. Every ono fclt satlsdcd. Tho candidatcs fraternizcd and thelr supporters dld tho same. So long as that splrlt pre valls tho public affalrs of Montpelier will be propcrly cared for. There was somo little troublo to get the prescnt non-partlsan system under way but it ls under way and control llng way now. It ls so seldom that a break away from the dlcls lon of tho caucus, and so much more soldoin that such a break succeeds, that lt may be sald that the cltlzens' caucus ls supromc. Thoro may be occaslons when a bolt Is Jus tlflable, from a cltlzens' caucus as from all other noinlnatlng bodlcs, and Mr. Doucette may succecd in ward slx. I hold no bcllcf, for or agalnst hlin. He has a certaln advantage ln that Mr, Deady secured the offlcc two years ago by boltlng the caucus, but Mr. Deady ls a very resourceful man. The Board of Alderman of Itutland last week proposed to niake tho sal ary of the mayor ?800 a year. It Is worth more than that to preslde of tho niunlclpal affalrs of that communlty, but that ls too much of a salary to pay in a Vermont .town. Tho salary was aftorward cut to $200. ln the be glnnlng the Mayor and Aldermen of Montpelier servcd without conipcnsa tlon and we had just as good officlals as we have now. lt is altogether wrong that tho salary of a niunlclpal offlce should be so large as to Inspire nien to seek tho place for the sakc of tho salary, and on the other hand, it should not be niade so sniall that a poor man cannot afford to take tho place. The warning for the March meetlns of tho town of Berlin contaius a sug gestlon that the town take some ac tlon In regard to the acqulsitlon by Montpelier of land about Berlin Pond and for the protectiou of Its grand llst. lt may be well for Berln to remember that Montpelier has al ways dealt falrly with tho town, that it has pald for cverythlng it has bought thero and has never resorted to condemnation proceedlngs. Berlin has always been treated as a friendly nelghbor, whlle somo of its people havo always snarled nt Montpelier. Tho town in whlch our water supply Is situated has been allowed more than its legal rights and i ought to have sonie sense of appreciation. It is probable that tho town ha3 such appreciation and that the dlstUrbance about the taking of land about Ber lin Pond is the work o a fcw indlv iduals rather than of a majority of tho town. It ls a good thing for neighbors to dwell together in peaco. EAItNEST TUIFUCR. M:Wl'01tT 1VIXS HUHHi:i. Defeated llradford Aeadi'iny 22 to 21 in Hotly Contested Ganie Frltlny Kvciiiiig.

He expects to put hls men to work Wednesday mornlng ln shed No. 3 of tho Ellls Company and will start rlght away to rebulld hls demollshcd plant. The nccldent occurred just as tho men were preparing for work. Bcn- Jamln Davls, operator of the travcl lng derrlck, had just cllmbed Into hls place and got tho niachinery in oper atlon when tho whole bulldlng bcgan to squeak, grato and grind, and in less than ten scconds had tumbled to the ground, a huge mass of dcbrls, Davls had absoluteiy no chance of escaplng and fell with iiis lnachlne, part of his body landlng on a stonc whero he lay, a cruinpled, lnanlniato flgure, untll rescued by hls fellow worknien. When examlned by physl- clans, who wero hastlly summoned, lt was found that ho had sustalned lnternal lnjurles, ln addltlon to paliv ful abraslons and one or two frac tures, a couplo of flngers havingbeon brokon, and whllo lt was at flrst thought that he was fatally Injured, lt was sald last nlgnt that hls condl tlon was so much iniproved that he is in a fair way to recover. Willlam Hauver of Northlleld Falls was qutte badly Injured about the back and face. Louls Gaspcr escaped with injuries to the head and face. Edward Danal- uzzl sitffered sovero cuts on the head Mlchael Cashcn had hls hand lacer ated and his leg sllghtly Injured, while Kltt Mathleson, Fred Thomas and Louls Swan had thelr legs liurt. John Fontana sustalned a serlous scalp wound. Tho only man on the job who clulms to havo see; tno thing coniiug Is Antolne Miller, who says that ho had just barely tinie to bring the ln. stlnct of sclf-preservatlon into play and run for a place of securlty. He accomplfshed thls by golng undor a projectlng stone. A remarkable in cldont in connectlon wlth the collapse of the building, Is tho story of one man, who says he was standing in the center of the shop when the bull dlng fell. The sldes of the bulldlng fell out, not In, as proviously report ed, and the roof ln falllng became dl vlded separated so that the man ln (lRestlon was not touehed, tho rulns falllng on either slde of hini and leaving hini absolutely unlnjured, but so bowildered that ho had to be toueh ed on the shoulder hefore he came to. ln speaklng of tho matter last night Mr Burns sald: "There is absolutely no truth in the rumpr that went the rounds yes torday to the cffect that the wrecklng of the building was the work of somo malicious persons The building has been Jdle for such a long tlme on ac count of the labor troubles that the sudden heatlng of it and the startlng of the niachinery undoubtedly con tributed to the loss, but my oplnion Is thut there was some flaw or dofect in tho Iron cross rods, upon whlch there Is a great strain The boys In Northfield are among the best in the buslness and I wlsh to take thls oc- caslon to publlcly thank them for thelr generotis actlon yesterday ln votlng me the asslstanco that, they dld. lt was certainly a magnaninious niove to vote a day's work to helplng me ln my dlfficulty when one stops to thlnk that they have been out of work so long, and my appreciation of thelr actlon cannot bo expressea ln words." Mr. Burns oxpects to have hls plant rebullt and ln worklng order ln about threo months. Tho plant that was wrecked last Saturday we built last sunimer and was supciintended In tho constructlon of It by Mr. Burns hlmsolf. It was two hundred and Ilfty feet ln length and considered one of tho best ln thls viclnlty. It was equlpped with all tlio latest and most modern convenlences and wlth tho best niachinery obtalnable. As soon as the bulldlng collapscd, the firo nlarm was rung ln and when tho townspeoplo hoard of what the troublo was all hands turned out and rendered all tho asslstanco posslblo. Aftorwards, tho cuttors' unlon beld a meetlng and enthuslastlcally and un anlmously voted to give Mr. Burns a day's work. Whon conditlons are normal, Mr. Burns employs ovor 50 men.

Publlcatlon ln the Mornlng Joumal a short tlmo ago of tho story of tho St. Albans rald, as recallcd by formcr Governor Joslah Grout, brlngs up tho fact that the lion. B. F. Fiileld of thls clty was United Statcs Dlatrld. Attorney nt tho tlmo of a rald In nn other dlrectlon, when tiio Fcnlans un dertook an attack on Cannda ln Juno 1SGG and lt was through hls actlvlty that the rald was so qulckly sup presscd. Whon Mr. Fldcld learned that a body of Irishnicn had gathcred ln Franklin county and wero lntcndmg to march into Canada, he telegraphed Rocltwood Koarof Ia?l3'.ic!i'a6fi;ts who was then Attorney General of the United Statcs. He was lnformed ln reply that a company of regular trcops was on the way to St. Albans. Bofore the troops arrlvcd Mr. Fi ileld gavo a warrant for the arrest of Col. O'Nelll, tho leader, to United States Marshal Fostcr, who had cotn manded a brlgade at Gettysburg and who welghed somcthlng llkc 300 pounds. The marshal went to the place wherc the men were encamped, lf thelr irregular gathering can he called a camp, apprehcndcd Col. O' Nelll and took hlm nway without any resistancc on the part of his follow ca. "It mado a deep impression on my mlnd," says Mr. Fifield, "tho re spect for law and order shown' by these men who wero plannlng n law less rald." In about thrce hours after tho ar rest of Col. O'Nelll tho troops aniv ed. They dlsmounted from tho cars ln silence, formed In llne and marc'aed to the park without a word belng spoken excciit the necessary orders. In the park they pltched thelr tents, built flrcs, made coffee and cooked supper llke old campaigners as they were. Warrants of tho John Doe order were then Issucd for the other lead' ers and they wero gathered in with' out resistancc and without any oo caslon for omploying the milltary. Thls broke up the rald, as the nien were dlsheartened at the loss of thelr leaders. Mr. Fiileld then went to Gov ernor Smlth, who askea "What ani I golng to do? I don't want these men left here hanglng around St. Albans wlth no money." "Put them on the cars, shlp them to White Rlver Junctlon and dump them there." sald Mr. Fifield. Thls was done, and on thelr anival there the New Hampshlro authorltles took charge of them and shlpped them on to Massachusetts. There was little need of Fedcral ln tnrference, as the men were unorgan lzed, practlcally unarmed, poorly clothed, and possessed of nothing dangerous except a strong hatred for England. In reportlng the matter to the Attorney General Mr. Fifield com- pared them to Artemas Ward's troops, But this prompt interference to pre- vent a breach of tho noutrality laws was ln such contrast to the actlons of England ln several cases that lt lvaJe a strong Impression and placed t' e United States in a fine positlon bofore the world. Tht leaders were Indlcted and thelr trial took placo in the United States courl at Windsor before .Tudge Wood-n-.ff of New York, A verdict of guilty was soon secured and Col. O'Nelll was asked the usual questlon, if he had anything to say why sentenco should not be pioriounced. In responst- he sald: "I fiefi from Ireland to escapo the cruelty and brutality of England. I havo made my home here and have becomo aeltlzen of thls country. I en usteu in ner service as a privato m the war and worked my way along untll I was promoted to colonel. I lntend to be a peaceful cltlzen. But I bclieved it my duty to avenge my wrongs and those of my natlve coun try and thought I saw an opportunlty to do so In making a rald on Canada. I dld not lntend to violato tho laws of thls country but to avenge the wrongs of my own." Sen.itor Evarts and his famlly and a number of suuimer vlsltors and many people of Windsor wero presont and all wero deeply affccted at tho siniple remarks of Col. O'Nelll. Tho Dlstrlct Attorney mado no reply. Judgo Woodruff proceeded to sentenco the prisoners, and In dolng so sald: "For your conduct ln tho service of the country, whlch secured your pro uiotlon to tho rank of colonel, you deserve the country's thanks. For your ondeavor to become a good and peaceful cltlzen you deserve conimen datlon But theso things cannot se cure immunlty from punlshment for offcnscs you hnve commltted agalnst tho laws. Tho sentenco must bo exe cuted, and tho sentence of tho court ls that you bo conflned In jail for a poiicd of CO days." Thls enabled tho Govornmont to state to tho ropresentatlves of Great Brltaln that the noutrality laws had boen enforccd and offenders ngalnst them promptly convlcted and linprls oned. As a mnttor of fact Col, O'Nelll wns not closely conflned ln jall, though ho returned to hls quarters thero ovory night.
