A feature of tho evening was the

Commlssloner of Agriculturo O. L.
Martln, and T. G. Bronson of East
Hardwick nnd II. L. Hatch of Straf
ford, members of tho prcscnt legls
lature, to purchase property at Ran
dolph on or near tho locatloniof the
old Normal school for tho locatlon
of tho proposed Stato Agricultural
school As n result tho commlttee
has bought 90 ncrcs of land for tho
state, lncludlng tho Maplowood ho

covered wlth growlng tlmber.

permanent lease of the Normal school

Thls locatlon ls the best and most
deslrable and has a street frontage
of between 30 and 40 rods. There
are many large shadc and frult trees

erectlon of other bulldlngs as tlmo
Tho commlttee arranged wlth Mrs.
Julla A. Stono of Barre, Luke Par
lsh of Randolph, Georgo A. Hart of
Boston and Judgo Boyden of Ran
dolph, the ownors of tho property so
that the State acqulred tltlo a a
moderate prlce, tho entlre cost
amountlng to about ?10,000.
The Normal school year does not
closo untll the month of July but
it is underetood the trustees propose
that the agricultural school lp readl
ness for the fall term of 1911.
It is proposed to use the Maple
wood hotel for dormltory and board
Ing house purposes and it is practi-
cally furnlshed and equlpped for that
purpose, although some mlnor re
palrs may be necessary.
The present Normal school, whlch
is now ln the hands of the State
Board of Educatlon, will pass to the
hands of the trustees of the new
agricultural school on July 1, 1911,
and will be used for instructlon pur
poses. It has an excellent and well
equlpped chemlcal laboratory and
furnacee and all modern conven
iences. The lease of the Normal school
carries no expense to the State ex-
cept for maintenance and repalrs,
and includes the income from a
school fund of about $10,000. The
school ls now known as the Gram-
mar and Normal school and the fund
cannot bo used for any other pur
post than thls school so lt naturally
goes wlth the lease.
It is generally believed that tho
proposed school ls only the begin
nlng of what will be accompllshed in
tralning the young men of tho State
to tlll the soll. For a number of
years the great cry has been that
Vermont was not doing what she
should do to keep the farmers' sons
on the farms and prevent them from
golng lnto the cltles and the new
school will certalnly bo a step in
the right dlrectlon.
Agriculture is one of Vermont's
greatest resources and the openlng of
an agricultural schol indlcates that
lt is not golng to bo neglected.
