This Is what would naturally lie expected

I have held from tho start of the new
yachting interest among us that Lake
Chnmplalii could never become a tavorite
yachting resort or Hurlington a great
yachting centre unless the business of
building yachts should be established
hero Our yachts must be bnllded here
and by ourselves in order to have them
adapted to our waters and the conditions
of inland service. To build one good ser
viceable yacht here was my llrst am
bition. Such a boat home-built and
giving satisfaction to the local
owners would do more good locally,
and advance yachting interests among ns
more than the importation of a iloeu lor
eign yachts could do. The Unrlliiglou
was at its trial tri), and Is to d iv mote
than a yacht. She was and is a demon
stration of our local abilltyandenterprise ;
a proof that we are not beggars on foreign
bounty, but able to build and sail our own
cralt. To make this demonstration, and
give this sure proof to the public 1 re
garded full reward for a .summer's work.

gentleman Is .Mr. D. .1. Ij.iwlor of
Chelsea, Mass., and it is not too much to
say that his name is as well and honorablv
known as a designer and builder of fast
yachts as any in the country.
Tlie lolloiving clipped lrom .Mr. Law
lor's business card will give the leader a
fair idea of the scone and extent of his
ability and experience.
"Having had a) years experience in
draughting and building yachts, pilot
ooais, schooners, and steam yachts, and
having modeled the fastest vessels in the
fruit, oyster and lislilng business in New
Engl. mil, I am prepared to furnish models
and moulds for any class of vessels. Steam
achts and pilot boats a specialty. I will

down vessels ; and, also, show the simp

in view ot the aoove arrangements

that I shall open the building hott-e for
work about the JOth of Match, when Mr.
I.awlor antl his workmen will take tins-
session ot tho yard and that we will build
any craft of any size or model desired,
whether sail or ste.im at the shortest pos
sible notice and at reasonable rates. Mr.
I.awlor lias designed some of the fastest
cat, sloop, cutter and pilot bouts in
American waters, and anyone desiring a
yacht can trust its design and construc
tion to him as to oueof approved integrity
and ability. All correspondence concern
ing the subject can be addressed to me at
liurlington. Vt.. and will receive momot
attention, and any assistance I can render
to any, whether at home or abroad, will
be gladly and freely given.

Dedicatory Services of tlio New Itoom ot
tlie AV, C. T. It. Yesterday.
Dedicatory services were held iu t'jo hall
of the Good Templars, in Warner Hlock,
Sunday afternoon, by the Women's
Christian Temperance Union, upon tlie
occasion of the opening of their
new room. The exercises wero attend
ed by a good-sized audience, in
spite of the stormy weather. Ad
dresses were made by l'rof. S. F.
Kmerson of the University and States
Attorney I). J. Foster. Appropriate music
was rendered by the united choirs of tlie
1' list Congregational and College street
Congregational churches, C. W. Davis
presiding at the piano, l'rayer was otter
ed by President M. H. iiuckham. The
llrst address was by Prof. b. F. Kmerson,
tnd was an admirable setting forth of the
Christian aspect of tlie temperance union
work. Professor r.nterson said that the
cross of Christ has a two fold outlook, to
ward God and toward man. On the side
of man its significance is that of
sympathy, tlnding its human expres
sion In brotherliness, love for others.
Uisinthissen.se that tlie work of the
Women's Christian Temperance Union is
grounded in Christianity and the gospel.
The speaker dwelt upon the various
methods employed by the organization in
carrying out this spirit of lovo lor fellow-
men, and made a strong piea lor total
abstinence on the part of those who are in
sympathy with its work.
u. .J. rosier, r.sii., also gave an inter
esting address. Ho spoke of the organiza
tion and its worK in supplement ng the
enforcement ot the prohibitory law, and
refeired to the fact that tlie author
of the prohibitory law was a young
lawyer in .Massachusetts and was
written ;n or .lb years ago. 'the
bill was introduced in the Massachusetts
legislature and failed to passed, but was
afterward made a law in Maine and
then in other Slates. He also spoke
ol the work of the W. (!. T. U. and what
had been accomplished by them, and that
more hail been accomplished since its or
ganization than for the previous .V,) years.
Tlie teaching of sclenlllic temperance in
our public schools was uljo having a 'rent
influence on tlio young. He called the at
tention of tlie union to another phase of
their work for which there wts a crying
need, and that was in the line of social
purity, Tlie remarks ot both speakeis
were listened to witli deep attention, l he
members received much encouragement
tor the further prosecution of the work to
which iney nave placed ineir annus.
