It will bo Interesting to know just what card ex-Sccrotary Joseph Chamberlain now has up his alcove. Congregational llcolprocity. The Quebec Congregational association which meots nt Island Pond this week, will afford a fine examplo of congrega tional fellowship between tho two lands. In Canada are many pastors who once served in the United States, whllo In Ver- mor.t Is a good-sized contingent of clergy men tvho hailed from tho Dominion. Among these are the Rov. Thomas Hall of Island Pond and tho Rov. A. F. Mc- Oregor of Newport both of whom woro superintendents for tho Canadian Con- Eregatlonal Missionary socloty. The Itcv. "Dr. S. N. Jackson, formerly of Barro and now of Burlington, was also for many years the treasurer of tho snmo society. Other ministers from Canada nro scatter ed up nnd down the State, a number of whom aro expeoted to attond this unlnuo meeting. Senator Proctor Did Not Hunt on Sun day. Those who know Senator Redflcld Proc tor do not neod to be told that ho never hunts on Sunday, or that the report sent out from Newport, N. II., In relation tc paying a fine for killing a raccoon on th feabbath did him a great Injustice. As a matter of fact Senator Proctor whllo out hunting In company with his- grandson on Saturday afternoon shot a raccoon, not dreaming that there was a law pro tectlng that animal, and in view of the manner In which tho animal Is viewed in most States this supposition can hardly bo regarded as strange. Indeed consulta tion of the gamo laws of all tho States In the Union shows that tho Crnnite State Is the only one In which there is a closed season fcr raccoons. After the raccoon had boon bagged he learned of the law, and at tho first op portunlty ho Informed on himself to tho commissioner nnd paid the penalty with out waiting for apprehension by any rep resentative of tho law. Under tho cir- :umstnnces It Is evident that Senator J'roctor did all that lay in his power to remedy the mistake. Tlie New Hampshire Liquor Lnu. It is related that In a New Hampshire city the city marshal had "posted" th; name of a certain man as a drunkard and snloonKrcpers were instruoted not to sell to him. He was found on the street the worse for liquor, and was arretted. In the police court ho said he had procured the liquor through ono of his friends, who bought It for him at tho saloon. Although the friend denied this, the city officials derided to bring him to trial. Rut thero was nothing to charge him with. Had he old whiskey to his friend, ho would have been llablo for selling without a license nnd for selling to ono "posted" as an habitus, drunkard. But the new law- does not prohibit giving liquor to a "posted" man, nor acting as his pur chasing agent at tho bar and it remains o bo seen if the law can be stretched enough to take In tho "obliging friend. Idleness niul Pauper KxpenseR. One of our prominent business men upproachod ono of tho crowds of loafers who can be seen at different points in our city on almost every pleasant day and endeavored to secure the assistance of sovernt of their number In a piece of clean work he had on hand; and In srlto of the fact tjiat ho mado a substantial offer not one of tho strong and able bodied men Importuned could be induced to work. Different citizens have nt various times spoken of tho difficulty of securing tho and Mrs. Phelps nttcndod this grand func Borvlces of men for work about their tlon together, and by applying (against premises at homo or at tholr places of tho remonstrances of tholr husbnnds) to business, and, Judging from the frequency with which this complaint Is heard, there would seem to bo need of measures to bring about tho remedying of this situa tion. There are probably n few common laborers out of employment In tho city who really want places, even while cltl- rens are searching for help; nnd If some means of bringing the two together could be devised, It would be a great conven ience to tho ono and a pronounced ad vantage to the other. Possibly laborers out of employmont and willing to work could leave their name3 at tho pollen of- flco where residents In search of help could upply. Borne more practical solu tlou of the difficulty may suggest Itself; lmi In the meantime, If men leavo their names there, and tho department notify iiv.

Letters of n Diplomat's Wife. Tho diplomat's wlfo Is Mndamo Wad- dlngton. Her husband, William Henry Wnddingtou. who died in 1KM, was of !nBlS, descent, born in Frnnce, educated ... nnrt at Cambridge. England, where besides making his mark as a scholar ho rowed In tho Cambridge crow, In ono of the big Oxford-Cambrldgo boat races. Entering public life ho won high dis tinction as a member of tho Natlonnl Assembly of France, senator, minister of public instruction and Inter of foreign affairs, premier, ambassador extraordi nary to Russia and ambassador to tho Court of St. James. His wlfo, tho writer of these most entertaining letters, was Mary A. King, nn American girl, daugh ter of President Charles King of Colum bia college, Now York, and granddaugh ter of Rufus King, who was tho United States minister to England soon after the adoption of the constitution of tho United States. After her father's death she went to live in I'rnnco with her mother and sisters, nnd thoro met and married Monsieur AYaddlngton. Most of the letters were written to her sisters, Gertrude, who was tho wlfo of Eugene Schuyler (who was secretary of legation at St. Petersburg!!, and at Constantinople. United States minister to Greece, nnd consul-general at Moscow nnd Cairo, Egypt ) and the Misses Henri etta and Anno King. They aro tho let ters of an exceedingly bright American woman, moving in but not spoiled of high life in European courts, possessed of nn observant eyo, and gift of vivid description, nnd sotting down In familiar correspondence tho thlugs sho saw, and tho impressions maao upon ner by men and women of rank and high distinction In court and camp and hall, across tho Atlantic. Tho llrst part of the handsome volumo In which her lotters nro given to tho public, is devoted to her experiences In Russia in tho summer of 1S&3, when M. W'addlngton represented ids govornment nt tho cornoration of tho Czar Alex- nnder III, and wo do not know where a bettor Idea of the gorgeous displays and festivities, attending such an event, can bo obtained, than from these letters. Her stay In England, whllo her hus band was tho Trench ambassador thore, covered tho period during which our lato townsman, Hon. 1Z. J. Phelps, was United st(ltC3 mlnlster at tllc court of St. James, and she makes repeated mention of Mr. and Mrs. Phelps, In her letters. In ono, written soon after Mr. Pholp's arrival In London, sho asks; "Do you know any thing about Phelps, Waddlngton is anx ious to have your opinion? Ho says you ought to know about a Vormont man. Ilo (Phelps) will havo a difficult 'suc cession'. Mr. Lowell Is much liked and admired." Sho camo to know well and much admire both Mr. and Mrs. Phelns. Describing a visit to Windsor Castle, upon Invitation of Queen Vic toria, she says: "Tho party was a small one no other diplomats but Mr. and Mrs. Phelps, both charming. Waddlngton took Princess Beatrice Into tho dining room, and Mr. Phelps mc, so I was qulto happy Mr. Phelps says Ameri can women are not mauo tor couits and convennnc. They lose all their charm If not natural, and I think ho is right." In another letter thero is a do- scrlptlon of tho great State Jublleo cele- bratlon of tho fiftieth anniversary of the coronation of Quoen Victoria, at West- minster Abbey. Madame Waddlngton the Duke of Cambridge, commander of the army, nnd Sir Charles Warren, chlof of police, obtained special passes through the lines of troops, and policomon to guard them through the crowds, and so had much better vlows of the royal cor tege and th" parade than tholr husbands did. For this and many other most on tei tabling descriptions of gioat occasions, ami splendid palaces, and distinguished people, nnd lino dresses wo must refer our readers to tho prlnteU volume, It Is a book of 420 pages, handsomely printed nnd illustrated by Charles Scrlb- ner's Sons, Now York, and Is certainly ono of the most vivacious nnd readablo books of the year. Different Wnys of AhHlstlnjr Voters .In view of tho varied experience of residents of Vermont In dealing with the problem of assisting voters at tho noils our readers may bo interested in developments along this lino in Mnssa chusotts, ns brought out In connection with preparations for caucuses in uos ton. Inasmuch as Tuesday was a feast day observed us part of tho Jewish new year festival, and no orthodox Jow is permitted to wrlto during tho three days thus obeervod, application was mado to tho election commissioners to designnto somo caucus officer at each polling place to mark the ballots of such Hobrows ns might appear. In support of this appeal It was urged that its refusal would mean the practical disfranchisement of several thousand votors. Tho commissioners took the application under advisement and after deliberation announced that It would bo impossible to grant tho relief asked for. It was held that tho only nsslsstanco that can bo given a voter thero Is under tho pro visions of chapter 11, section 220, of tho general Btatutcs of Massachusetts, which provides that "a, votor who declares on oath to tho presiding officer that he ran not read or that from blindness or other physical disability ho Is unable to prepare his ballot, shnll bo nsslsted In tho marking thereof by ono or two of the presiding offlcors." It will be romombered by somo of our readers tint Vermont's Australian bal lot law, as first adopted, contained it provision not wholly unllUo that quotod from tho Day Stato's ballot act. Section 23 of tho secret ballot law, which was passed In 1802 by tho Legislature pro vided that any votor who by roason of physical or mental disability Is unablo to mark his ballot shall so dcclaro to tho presiding officer aforesaid and said voter Inasmuch ns our law did not compel voters asking for asslstanco to declaro on oath that thoy required assistance, It did not tako long for politicians to dis cover that tho provision quoted furnished an unsurpassed means of ascertaining whether tho purchased votor "dellverod the goods;" and soon voters who could readily read and write were frequently calling for asslstanco In order that party representatives might know they hod voted ns they had promised, In order to remedy this evil tho Legls- laturo In 1900 passed nn amendment to the election law, providing that two assisting clerks representing tho two leading par ties should help the voter propnro his ballot when requested. This measure did not suillce to meet tho situation, however, for when the purchased votor had oast his ballot the assistant representing tho party whoso ticket ho voted gave a pre concerted signal and tho party outside immediately understood that tho voter had earnod his money. When this method was first tried tho fact was overlooked In some quarters that tho assisting clerks were required to remain In their rcspcctlvo booths dur ing voting hours, nnd when this require ment was compiled with It becamo im possible, of course, for signals to be given but even now It seems to to pos sible In somo way to reach tho purchased voter. Massachusetts has plainly the best method yet devised to meet tho case, so far ns wo have observed, for if a voter commits perjury for the sako of selling nls vote and showing that he has de livered It, he can be sent to prison fr such perjury. The assisted vote should be reduced to tho smallest posfIMo pro portions, In order to guard against tho use of the assistant clerk as a spotter for his party. WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAY, Why Farmers Cnn Xot Join with Labor Uulunn for Shorter Honrs. (From tho Landmark.) ino Vermont Union Rimini nrlvlsns mo close co-operation'of the farmers uf Vermont with labor unions. It I trim that tho capacity of wage-earners, such as constitute tno various unions, to pur- uiiuHc agricultural and da rv tirnduets varies according to tho amount of waircs received. Apart from grange orKanlza- tlons, whoso obiect is tli hottormpnt nf tanners and farming conditions, wo fail to see in wnat nraot cnl wav any a i- anco between farmers and labor unions could be fonned. It is next to ImnosKlliln for farmers in anv ono section tn nlnnn advance prices of their products. In fact f'e fanners Is tho only producer In tho i.um wiiu nas iittio or no snuro in llx ing the prices of his products. Theso nro generally settled upon according to tho law of supply and demand nt commer cial centres, and tho foreign as well as the home demand has to be taken Into consideration. From tho very naturo of tno case farmers form a class by them reives, iiiey cannot demand with suc cess higher rates than prevail In tho markets, except in n few instances In wmcii tnc supply nrlvnte customers with a better article of production, llko butter for Instance, than Is found In open market. And wo have noticed that by some sort of telepathy or a wireless telegraphic system tho rise of a cent or two on a pound of butter or a dozen eggs In Boston Is immediately mado known m all tho country towns. A fall In prlco. however, of theso commodities Is not heard of In tho country for somo timo afterwards! The average farmer knows pretty woll what ho Is uliout when disposing of his products, nnd a strlko for higher wages by any labor union means loss to the local producer ns long ns It lasts, because men out of work can. not afford to buy as freely as when they nro earning wages. JUDGU MUNSON'S FOURTH CLASS LICENSES. (From the Brattleboro Phoenix,) If Judge Munson reads tho liquor law a-rlght, In his Interpretation for tho grand jury In Rutland county, ovnry 'wholesaler In tho Stato will bo knock ed "out." There will bo little If nny questioning of tho judge's opinion that tho fourth class or wholesale licenses cannot sell In nny other placo than that described In his license, and that tho licensee cannot solicit orders from a consumer In a town that votod for license and deliver liquor to tho oonsum crs. The point In tho judges statement which will provoke argument is that by tho fourth class Ucc-nto the Legislature Intended to provide "for authorized sales by wholesale dealers within tho Stato In supply of tho authorized retail trade and not to provide nn additional class of licenses for sales directly to tho con sumer." The fourth clas-s llcenso costs J1.000 a year, and It cnn bo scon thnt with tho business limited tn sales to tun retail dealers who aro nlso buying from largo concerns outsldo tho State, the fiold for tho wholesaler Is oxtremoly limited. Somo wholesalers in tho Statu, recogniz ing that tho question now under discus sion might bo raised, took out 'in addition to a wholesale llcenso a second class llcenso for selling liquors not to bo drunk on the nremlsos. Tho United States government in is suing Its licenses to retail and wholcsalo dealers, makes tho distinction thnt a license for retail business provides for n sain of less than Ilvo gallons, whllo a wholcsalo llcenso Is for a salo of not less than live gallons. The Rutland Herald, tho god-father of llcenso In tho Stato, evidently holtovrs. that Judgo Munson s Interpretation Is suund doctrine on all points, and that tho enforcement of tho law on thn linos Scrofula Fsw aro entirely freo from It. It may develop so slowly as to cause llttlo If any disturbance during the whole period ol childhood. It may then produce Irregularity of thr 5iomacu and uoweis, ayspepsia, camrrii and marked tendency to coiiBumptloi before manifesting itseir in much cmaucuu eruption or glandular swelling.

It Is repugnant to tho moral sense of the com munity that tho wholesalers should im portune the Individual consumer. It is enough that the Individual consumer Importunes tho rotaller. SHADE OP HANK MONK. Hark Tnnln WiiiiIh tn Ride nt the Wnrld'n Fnlr with a Hollo of tllc I'uimiui Northern Xi-w York Stntfo Driver. That the staco driver of tho pioneer days played an Important part In tho development nf tho gn.it west, and fairly won a place In tho national history. Is evidenced by tho (loop interest that has been aroused by the Inducement thnt tho Hank Monk relics will bo exhibited b Nevada at the world's fair, St. Louis. Jt nas boon announced that J. A.

Mark Twain's first famous book, Hank Monk was Immorta lized by the famous humorist, . when he doscilbed tho celebrated drlvo by which ll.ink Monk got tho great editor into l'lacorvlllo in timo to keep a lecturo en gagement. Dr. Clemens, nt his plcturesquo Onarrv farm, in Klmlra, N.

Those two names carry mo back thirtv-two years -Hank Monk and Ycrrlngtnn. 1 think I waa present when tlie watch wan given to Monk, but ono cannot bo very sure of things thnt happened In such an cient times. 1 am only am sure that 1 knew Monk a little, nnd that I know Sir. Yerrlngton's father woll. I mmlo one trip with Monk In that old stage. I wish I could bo In St. Louis on my day next Juno and make ono with ills ghost."

"Hank always had a ileslro to drive stage," said Mr. Monk In speaking of tho proposed exhibit, "from the days when ho was a mero boy at Waddlngton, and could scarcely trudge around and was only Btrong enough to snnp n whip with great exertion of his llttlo arms When ho was only twelve years old ho drove stago from Waddlngton to Mng i-cna, and I am told of tho older rorl dents of the town that ho was n good driver, oven at that early ago.

(From tho Chicago Chronicle ) The Wisconsin stato fair last week was a dismal failure. Tho attendance was small; tho exhibits wero inslgnilh nt; tho principal attraction, an aut-.m--bdo race, resulted In killing a man nnd smash ing his machine; tho gato money was ln sulliolont to pay expenses, nnd the pre miums aro In default. This is tho history of nearly nil lucent Stato fairs depend ing for maintenance on public patron age. The only successful Stato fairs aro supported by Stato appropriations of doubtful constitutional authority, not by fjato money and tho funds otherwise legitimately derived. The Illinois State fairs aro not self-sup porting into tent of thousands of dollars n year.
