5 CITY AND VICINITY. It Is iinnounccd that James Averlll of Champlaln, N. Y., has received an order to construct a steam launch lor Dr. W. S. Webb. The Youuk Men's Catholic Union at their last meeting voted to hold a musical nnd variety entertainment within three or four weeks. Mrx Julia A. Parker has sold to A. S. Webb the Jutlue Parker homestead on the corner of Main and Pine street. The consideration was $5000. After a thorough Investigation of the Mibject City Attorney Uurnnp gives it as ( his opinion that there can be no question as to the legality of the last city election. At the meeting of the Stntc board of dental examiners held Thursday morning A. L. Mlnott of Northlleld was examined nnd granted a license to practice In this Stnte. Tho speakers of the sophomore exhibi tion entsrtained the ushers Tuesrtny even ing, tendering them u banquet at Coon's. Toasts were responded to and the occasion was u pleasant one. The Methodist Sunday-school realized about $125 from Rev. Sum Jones's lecture Tuesday evening. The money will be used for replenishing their library nnd for other Sunday-school purposes. An organization was perfected Tues day afternoon among the medical students who are opposed to the secret society sys tem ns a non-secret, non-exclusivo society. This candidate for student favor has not as yet been named. The residence and contents of Mr. Job Hates, which was burned Sunday night at Essex Junction, were insured for j:)500 in the Royal Insurance company of Eng land, through T. S. Peck's agency. The loss will receive prompt attention. While iu the city Pev. Snm Jones visit ed the Hillings library and expressed him self much pleased with the building. Ho thought it surpassed any library building he had seen at any other college, iuclud ing Harvard and Yale. Manager Walker has succeeded in sc enring the strongest attraction iu Ameri ca, the English tragedian, Wilson Bar rett, supported by the charming actress, Miss E.istlake, and his English company, who will appear here May 2.

The Plattsburgh Tclojrnm says that it may be interesting to local fishermen to know that the streams on both sides on hake Champlaln were formerly tilled with salmon, but they are totally extinct. In 1823, 1500 pounds of salmon were takeu at a single haul of a sieue near Port Ken dall. J. A. McKenna is to make the neces sary cluiiiL'es m the property recently pur chased by him at the corner of Church and Mechanic streets for a large restau rant, which will include the space now occupied by Anthony - Williams barber shop, Lucas's glazier shop and P.iyu's machine shop.

The list as re vised will be published about May 1. Chnrles, the nine-year-old son of F. H. Parker, tell from a toboggan slide at Frank Converse's place Thursday after noon and fractured the bone in his right leg above the ankle. It is not a serious injury, but will keep him laid up 10 days or so. He sas the most that bothers him is the fact tint the spring vacation has just begun. The Plattsburgh stage started out on its return trip at the usual time Tuesday af ternoon, but when it reached the orphan asylum on North avenue, tne wind was blowing so hard that the flying snow rendered It almost impossible to see the horses. It was decided best under the circumstances to abaudon the trip and the btage returned to this city. The University Cynic Board organized Monday as follows : Managing edi tor, J. M. Cautwell, 'SS; business man nger, C. C. Stafford, '83; general litera turo. M. E. Story. '8S and G. Y. Bliss, 'Ml, science, G. E. Hyde, '88 ; local, C. I Barstow, '89; medical, A. W. Shea; per sonals, A.B.Gilbert, '69 ; exchanges, IJ M. Mcintosh, '89. The new board had a spreiul at Coon's last evening. Probably tho oldest representative of horse flesh in Chittenden county departed this life, Monday, at the remarkable age of 38 yenrs. We refer to the horse owned and driven for the past 30 years by our townsman, E. C. Lioomis. This faithful animal has been in constant bervice for many years, and is well-known to most of our citizens. It is a remarkable fact that he was driven the very day before his dentil. The annual meeting of the medical stu dents, U. V. M., of the class of '87 was held In the college building Friday afternoon and the election of class olllcers resulted as follows: President, G. H. Parham ; vice-president, J. F. Dlauchard ; secretary, C. M. Severance ; valedictorian, J. C. O'Brien ; treasurer, F. A. Goodwin ; his torian, A. W. Shea; marshal, W. I). Nut ter; executive committee, W. N. Fry, K. O. Crossman, J. M. Cheeuey. W. F. Wright is no longer a clerk at the postofllce. It Is understood that he was informed that he was to exchange places with Mr. Denning, receutly appointed, In which position his salary would be 200 less than at present. He said he would not nccept the change, whereupon he was notified to hand in ills resignation May 1. He said lie would leave nt once and Earl Kinsley was appointed to the place nnd assumed his duties Saturday. Tho trustees of the Home for Aged Women held a meeting Saturday nnd adopted by-lawB. A committee consist ing of Mrs. Jane Gray, Mrs. D M. Bing ham, Mrs. George L. IJnsley, Mrs. Mary C. Wheeler and Miss Jennie Stacy, was appointed to prepare rules for the govern ment of tho institution and devise means for carrying it on. Mr. Edward Wells, Prof. V. G. Barbour and Mr. C. P. Smith were appointed as executive committee. Entertainment wns afforded quite a largo number of people Tuesday after noon by the spectacle of two impromptu officers, D. Hall and II. Bigsbee, attempt ing to take to jail a young fellow named McKenzle for Intoxication, but who, to Judge from appearances was better nb'.o to stand than his captors. When opposite Ripley & Holton's on Church street, the young fellow made a break for liberty, but after running half a dozen steps Into the middle of tho street, lie was captured by a third party and taken back to his guard on the sidewalk. At Hank street, iovvever, ho rcgalued hl3 liberty and ran out of sight. The jail commissioners have just return ed from their tour of Inspection In the West. They were most favorably im pressed with the new rotary jail ntCraw- fordsville, Ind.,andthe probability Is that they will decide to erect a similar one in tills city. The plans and exterior view show that it will be a fine structure. Tho jail proper will be rotary and of steel and will contain 8 or 10 cells, each of which will contain two cots. There will also be three cells for women nntl.three for insane persons over the sheriff's office. It is ex pected that a jail erected on this plan will cost about .1S,000. Lieut. Crosby P. Miller, Jr., -1th artil lery, after three years faithful service as post adjutant of the artillery school at Fort Monroe, Va., has been relieved and ordered to Fort Adams, Newport, Rhode Island, for duty as regimental quarter master. Lieut. Miller's many friends in Vermont are always glad to hear of his success in the line of duty, and remember with great pleasure his pleasant sojourn u his native State while on duty at the University. The A rmy tinil Xavy Jour iikI says that on Friday evening, March 11, the ladles of the garrison gave a recep tion to the Lieutenant and Mrs. Miller, who were to leave In a few days for New port. SOl'JIOMOIli: UXIII1UTION. Orations by tho Ohms of '8!) ut tho Colleen Street Church, Tuesday. A driving storm and the most disagree able nnd forbidding conditions in the air and under foot, did not prevent the usual large audience gathering iu the College street church, Tuesday afternoon, to listen to the exercises of the annual Sopho more exhibition. The class was repre sented on the programme by 10 speakers, who appeared in alphabetical order. President Buckhnm announced the speak ers, having with him on the platform Rev. E. P. Uould. Excellent music was tur nished by the Howard Opera House or chestra. The following was the order of exercises : oiiiiKit or kxiuicises, Music. The Oucst of the Holv (irnll. Gcorgo Yerunns Miss.

The orations all showed careful investi nation, clear thoucht and a uniformly oootl stvle of eomnositlon. Some of them were unusually thoughtful and discrimi nating. l,ess attempt nt oratory or ora torical display was made than usual which was ratherof an imnrovemont than otherwise. Gestures, as a rule, were few and far between, but the appearance ot theyoung gentlemen for the most part was graceful and theirdeliverv excellent The speakers were nil made the recipients nt imnasome nnsketsor boquets ot dowers Not one of the sneakers had to be nrninnt- ed which is something quite unusual and the exhibition was in every respect one which reflects credit upon the class of 'bi and their instructors.

To tho Hdltor of the Free Press: Having of late received several applica tions for the Rest Treatment by persons who are unable to meet the necessary ex- lense attending it, but who are evidently n need of it and would undoubtedly re ceive benefit from it and aro every way worthy of help, I am moved to write to you and through you to aupeal to a char itable public iu their behalt. it mav nut be generally known that the dams Nervine Asylum receives as pa tients only inhabitants of .Massachusetts.

J.WII.LAKI). The Adams Nervine Asylum at Jamaica , near Boston, was established by its tounder "for the benefit of sucli indigent debilitated, nervous people, who are not nsane, inhabitants of the commonwealth of Massachusets. as may be in need of the benefit of a curative institution." it has saved many such nervuus invalids from years of terrible suffering, from insanity, and from the grave. But the benefits are limited to inhabitants of Massachusets. No Vermont invalid can share them. The man or woman who will establish a simi lar institution for our State would do a great work for the relief of human suffer ing, and earn the life-long gratitude of many deserving objects of such a charity. The editor of this paper has already , on his hands business and cares enough to keep him out ot mischief. But lie cannot refuse to receive any funds that may be bestowed for the purpose indicated by Dr. Willard, if any giver wishes to have him do so, and would take pains to see that they were properly appropriated. It would be well, however, it any consider able amount should be contributed for such a purpose, that the givers should select their treasurer for the same.

It may not be generally known that there is an order In existence in this coun try composed of veteran officers of the war of the rebellion, called the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, which is di vided into three classes. The first class Includes officers who have been honorably discharged, having served their country well and faithfully.

STA- t A I.I st of experiments tu be Conducted the Coming Season, As is well known, tho State Agricul tural Experiment Station has no farm of its own, and hence It must rely on the farmers ot the State for the land on which to conduct the series of experiments that arc to be carried out tills summer. It Is desirable that these experiments be tried In each part ot the State. They are as fol lows : 1. The testing of new fodder plants to see If they urn adapted to our soli untl climate, (l.

The trials with new fodder nlnnts will be on plots.ot one-fourth of an acre. The fertilizers trial on blots of one-tenth of an acre with several uumanured plots for comparison. The experiment station will furnish the seed and the fertilizers free of cost, only stipulating that whoever takes them shall agree to report to the station the results ot the trial. All who are willing to try any of these experiments will please send in their names and signify which experiments they desire to make. I'll directions will be sent with eacli package of seed or fer tilizer. Address all communications on above subject to W. W. Cooke. Director. State Agricultural Experiment Station Burlington, vt.

No. 11 freigh train which leaves this city at 0 o'clock was stalled in a cut about a mile south o Vergennes nnd remained there about Hi hours, detaining the .Montreal sleeper whicli was held at ergenues. The New York sleeper due here nt 4:10 Wednesday was also detained the first part reaching hero at 11:45 antl the remainder which had been stalled at Mount Holly did not arrive till 12:-t3.

"Forbes" writes the Boston Journal as ( follows : The production of maple sugar in Vermont tills year promises to be much ' less the average yield of former seasons I TlieState annually produces about 11,000, I 000 pounds, but the lateness of the season . and nrevailincr climatic conditions mak i the nronect of a aood suirar crop rather '"Kpoor. The great depth of snow everywhere is likely to prove a hindrance to sugar making, while the fact that there is littl 1 frost in the ground precludes a great How of sap. In some places the sugar houses i will not be opened at all, while in other ' sections fanners will not tap their full complement of trees.
