Tho New Hampshire Satiate on Wcilne day considered the liquor license bill In committee of tlio whole, and passed It with amendments.

When the rural free delivery service was first Instituted probably few people dreamed that the demand for facilities of this character would have u far-reach ing Influence on tho problem of pcrma nent highway improvements, yet present Indications arc that the necessity of pro viding good roads In order to accommo date this service will be one of the nost potent influences working to that end. It Is a, well recognized fact that though people may recognlzo the need of public Improvements like tho construction of permanent highways, they are often backward about carrying out tho same until circumstances compel action to be taken. We nil realize the value and econ omy as well as the need of permanent highway construction, yet most towns neglect to take even the first steps In the direction of building good roads un til forced by legislation to act. Word conies from Washington that tho piotractod wet weather of the present Vinson has sered to convlnco tho postal authorities of tho necessity of the pro iMon of better roads. If rural free dellv- i is to be extended to the expected limits. The wretched condition of tho i'iads now used by many of the free ili livery carriers has gioatly rctnided tho malls und brought the department face to fa e with a serious problem, What action will be taken with refcr tii'O to those free rural delivery routes ulready established can not be stated at this time; but fear Is expressed that some nf the routes must bo abandoned unless t le local authorities pay more atten tion tlo tho provition nt good roads. In relation to proposed extensions of the trrvice one of tho must Impoit.mt ipies tions manifestly will be whether or not Hie new territory in traversed by high ways that arc passable in all conditions of weather; and it will behoove every town desiring rural free delivery to look lo tho condition of its highways. Indian Names and Indian Poetry. The people nf the Champlain valley can leadlly appreciate what It would mean to obliterate lrom this region all the romance und tradition wrapped up in the Indian names borne by some of our lakes and livers and various geographical points. There is a growing appreciation of the value to our language as well as to the historical Interest in this locality of the nomenclature which constantly keeps bc foro us visions of a vanished race, and re minds us that in addition to making this alley the gateway of the north nnd the hci'iie of stirring conflict here too the war nor "wooed his dusky mate." Itesldents of this section would ilse lu indignant protest were any natlonnl or local nuthor it to seriously suggest substituting for uir existing nomenclature one that should liavc no Indian names and one that would compel us, fur example, to again abolish, us did our geographies oner upon a time tho euphonious anil picturesque name of thu Wlnooskl" to make place, for tho prosaic though highly .suggestive "Onion liver." We have recently given still fur ther evldcnco of our duslto to preserve suggestions of tho aboriginal life of this alley by calling lllnesburgh pond, l.aku Iroquois," These examples might be mult! piled to si t length locally, and If wo wish lo dwell upon tho mellllluuus beauty of Indian names elsewhere wo can te peal '.Minnehaha," "Alubama," "Susiiue liann.i, 1 and others that will readily sug gest themselves. Hut Willie wn would regtet oxieedlngly to wipe out of our current literature and our language of eery day such terms us s-Mggcat the Indian sti ugglcs and scenes that have combined to help make famous th valley of Luke Champlain, probably lew of us have thought of the poetic In spiration with which Indian llf and tra dilioli were so leplele, or of tho poelio loss which the complete disappearance of 1 idiau legends would InvnHc. Students of aboriginal life, will theiefoio hull with di light tho appearance of a volume of Algonquin puems, for which the Into t liarles U, Lelnnd arid Piof. Dynolcy 1'iincc were Jointly lesponslble, Till work contains the metrical translation n u number of Indian legends relating l a deml-god 'Kuloskap" and most of llieso legends are said lo have been tram fja'fd literally by l.ouis Mitchell, a Passa mnquoddy Indian, who was at ono tlmo a member of tne .Maliio LigMatiue. v. If w rxli.uts will set vi 1 ft show the j.iluic ol this work aa well ua furnish nn Idea of tho tradition embodied In tho Indian poetry. Hnvlng tnndo u giant lnooso tho demt-god railed the animal to him und nsked what tho latter would do, if it should sec :i man coming. Answered the monstrous Team, "I would tear tho trees down on him." Then the Lord Kuloskap Maw that the mooso was too strong; Ko ho made him smaller and weaker, So that tho Indians could kill him. Another extract is the following, slimy lug tho divine side of Kuloskap; lie greatly loved mankind. And wherever ho might be, Though afar in tlio wilderness, Ho never was far away. Away from his Indian children. He dwelt In a lonely land, Hut whoever went to seek him, Tlio masteitver found. This Is a more concreto cone'eptlon of the Great Spirit so conspicuous In Indian thought of the hippy hunting ground than wp nie wont to attribute to the red man, and It Is difficult to conceive of a, child of the forest writing poetry of this character in tho picture lnngitago of his day. A moment's reflection, however, will serve to recall the fact that tho typi cal language of the Indian was almost Invariably figurative to a degreo ap proached by the speech of no civilized people, and that all conditions of life wore highly conducive to the development of tho imagination, every tree and plant belnf Invested with a spirit. if wo atlaeli so much to the nomencla ture and the poetry of the American abo rigines, what shall we say of any project that would deprive tho Indian not only of tho significance! of his picturesque name but of his very namo Itself? Yet this is tho step now being seriously considered by tho Indian bureau at Washington. Ac cording to this programme the depart ment will rechrlsten all of the Indians In the 1'nlted States that have not nt ready adopted modern names. The In dians will not be consulted as to whether they wish to substitute American names like John Doc and James Jones and Thomas White for the polysyllublle cog nomens which to us are as meaningless as' thoy are tinpronuuncablo in the Indian tongue, but which to them are almost in variably ligur.itlve. being typical of some quality, char.icti'i Istie or idiosyncrasy of the bcal er. The Indian n cords will thus be deprived of those names whiih being interpreted rend "IUiii In the Face." "Eagle Heart," "Son of the Winds," as well as of the less poetic but none the less expressive names of "Jumping Hear," "Double Hi art," and "Chief Who Beats His Mother-in-law." While tome of the Indian names appeal ridiculous lo ui as translated, they are almost invariably liquid and pleasing to the ear In the original, and they are the exemplification of that tendency lo deal In metaphorical language In even the most prosaic relations of life. so charac teristic of the untutored son of the forest and of the prairie. Tho necessity which dictates the sub stitution of modern names for those so long borne by thu red men Is typical of our practical age. Though taking much that is savagely poetic out of Indian life, it will enable members of families to trace their relationship and also make it possi ble for the Indian depailment to keep clear on tho government records all titles and allotments. Whiln the change will rob the Indian of one means of cultivating his propensity to indulgo in figurative speech, it will also cut him off from much that Is repulsive In his past. The transformation, while having Its pathetic features, will yet mark another step for ward in the slow but steady progress of the civilization of tho American Indian. Fifty Years in the Free Fits'.. On the lirst of April, fifty years ago Wednesday, the Free Press became the properly of Geoige W. and G. U. Hcncdkt. The Weekly Free Press had then been published for twenty-six years. Tho Dally had been for live years the first md only dally in Vermont. The paper md printing office had been owned und edited for seven years by Gen. DcWitt I'linton Clarke, (whose military title came to him from his having held the of- llco of quartermaster-general of Vermont). General Clarke was n witty and able nil- tor, but was unsuccessful llnaniially; was obliged to assign his property for the benellt of his creditors, and the paper and Hie Free Press building, erected In KJ2 by the former proprietor, Henry H. Stacy, for ills printing ofllce and residence, which has been the homo of the paper for oxer seventy years, was purchased of his assignees by tho Benedicts, father and son, who thereupon becamo the cditois and publishers. Tho transfer was made without flourish of trumpets. The name of "G. W. Benedict, editor and publisher," (soon replaced by tho firm name of the new owners) In place of that of General Clarke, at the head of tho first column on the first page, was the only Immediate Mulo change, though that something had happened might have been Inferred from (lie circumstance that tho first editorial ifter the transfer of the paper, was on "Preventive legislation," and in support of the prohibitory law enacted a few months before, which measure at that time, as in iicent months, had been the iliief Issue in Vermont and had hail no support and some opposition from tlio pre, Ions editor. In PiiO tho elder Bene dict, whose health had compelled his ab sence from home in warmer climates for several years, lellred from tho paper, anil Mr. G. G. Benedict, who had then been for tim e years or more the editor-in-chief in fuel, assumed tho chief ehargo lu name, a position which he has occupied con tinuously for the lust forty years, and still occupied, ills expei lenco in Journal lm Ilius coers fifty years a. period long er than that of aiiv Journalist In Vermont, and equalled by few, if uiiy.

From a vlllago with a popu lation of less than 7,000 In ISM, without paved streets or water works, or street cars or telephones or public libraries, Burlington has become a city of 20,000 In habitants with these and many other facilities and Improvements. In ISM the first gas works had Just been built, and tho people were burning whale oil nnd "burning fluid'' for light In their dwell ings. Tho town hall was then In process of erection, nnd an object of moro pride than It has excited In later years. Of the school houses und college buildings of that day none are now standing. Tho Dally Frco l'rcss In April, 1SJ3, w.i3 a small sheet of four pages, having live columns, IS Inches long, to a page. Ono page was chiefly devoted to reading mutter, divided Into a column of editorial, three columns of political and general news, culled from city exchanges; half a, column of State and local news, with some days not a local Item and about n hundred words, as often less as more, of telegraphic news. The other fifteen col umns were tilled with advertisements, most of them 'standing ads" and lists of uncalled for letters, advertised by tho postmaster. The list for April 0, an nounced by Postmaster I.. P. Blodgett, 1 i 1 It-tl a column and a half and contained nearly 100 names of persons who had not called at the otllce fur ihelr letters. A glance at the advertising columns of the dally at that time shows the names of the two leading wholesale houses (hi flour, grain, salt, etc.) of J. & J. II .Peck & Co. on Hi" square; Follett At Co., in the stum- building at tho head of the south whin I, ami Cut Ms & Walker, corner of King and Water streets, W. H. Wllklns A.

Tho leading retail groter and wag of the ad vertising columns was A. S. Dewey, on the west side of the square, who an nounced "hams and cigars, smoked and unsmoked" choice figs under the head ing "A fig for your cents-ability," "a couplo of fresh eggs" anil "a pound and a half of good butter to arrive"; and un der "The downfall of Gicece," a lower prlrc for his lard.

Them were forty thrco lawyers here but the only ono who had a card In the paper was William G, Shaw. Of the men and women mentioned above, not one, so far as the wilier knows. Is now living. It was a "day of small things" in the Free Press olllce. Thu entire outfit of tho paper, editor's sanctum, counting room, and newspaper printing and Job ofllce, occupied but a single, floor, (the second) In the Free Press building, then but half as deep and a story less In height than now. The mechanical plant when the Benedicts took possession con sisted of one Washington band press, a small card press and a few fonts of type. The force of "hands" comprised a fore man (who besides making up the paper set the horse and auction hand bills, and bill heads which constituted the bulk of the Job printing); a pressman, two or three compositors and an apprentice.

Be fore I tried this romcdy my fingers were swollen and all my joints pained mo terribly.

New IInuiisliiri;'fi License Law. The license law which has Just been enacted in New Hampshire resembles tho Vermont local option and llcom.0 law in tlio fact that it Is a compromise measure, but otherwise It differs materially from tho liquor legislation now in form In the Green Mountain Stale. While tho New Hampshire law is nominally a local option measure, It lu reality makes It Impossible lor those opposed to the granting of II censes for tlio sain or intoxicating 11 quor to prevent thu traflle entirely for beverago purposes. Kven though the legal voters volo not to grant licenses tho statute provides tho means whereby tho no-license vote of any community may bo over-ridden by a State board of license commissioners. Tho State commissioners may in their discretion grant licenses to hotel keepers anywhere In tho State, and that at a fee ranging nnywheie from J'.'j to Jl.OeO a year. This feature of the (Irnnlto State's law was lu nil probability formulated for thu oxpresH purpose of conserving tho Inter ests nf llio commonwealth's summer vis Itor business. It la, however, a manifest violation of the spirit as well as tho letter of local option, and It lu reality grants local option only lo the lluuor Interests uh to whether they shall have licenses through local commissioners or through thu Stato board. The Stall! commission of New I lamp shire is constituted much the same as nro tho local commissions in Vermont. Tlio body consists of three commissioners who are appointed by the governor, for six years, lour yeurs and two yens, respec tlvely, so that the term of one of tho coin mlssloncis will expire every two yeais, Tho commission is bi-partisan, the com mlssloners who have.

Now that the two States, lying side by side and , .... . having so many things in common, have new local option and license laws with widely differing features, it will bo in (cresting to watch the opera ton of the same and compare notes with lefercnce to itsults.
