not nccept the change, whereupon he was

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.

BuilMNtiTON, Vt,, March 18, 18S7.
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.
Those lor whom 1 here n pad are so un
fortunate as to be inhabitants of Vermont
and are consequently not entitled to that
charity.

A. 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.

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

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. Alfuifu. n snoclcs of clover, reuillres
land well chained, und Ironi which tho snow
does not blow ott In the winter: sown bnmd.

like benns, makes n very heavy Krnwth nt ex
cellent lodder; used only lor green leed ; can
bo Brown on poor, weedy soli, but does best
on u soli naturally rich In potash.
d. Horse bt-uiis, sown broadcast with hurley
or oats thutare to be cut for liny, to Increase
the nutrltlousncss of tho lodder.
2. Tests with fertilizers. Tho work with fer
tilizers will he confined to nslmrlo line of In
quiry, namely to ascertain whether fodder
plums can usu phosphoric aciil when
it Is supplied In the cheap lorm
of undissolved phosphate rock or un
dissolved bone black. Theso experiments
will bo tiled on permanent grass land only as
It will take two or moro rears to determine
how much benefit has been received I mm the
fertilizer. Tho phosphates will bo supplied.
(i. Ill tho lorm of lino ground .South Caro
lina rock,
h. In tho form of fine ground bono black.
c. These two form? mined with tho addition
oi piustcr.
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.

is likely to prove a hindrance to sugar
