The camp meeting at Claremotit Junc tion wn Uio most successful In recent I venrs, with larger nttondanco mid more. profitable services. It only needs tho moro nctlvo support of somo nearly pastors mid churches to realize. Its greatest use- fUlllll'SH. An experiment In church federation Is about to be tried at Randolph Center. Tho Methodist and Congregational Churches have formed a federation. Each retains Its own organlzavton nnd the ser vices are to he held six months at a llmu In each house. Hut ono pastor Is to bo employed. Thoy expect to receive a Meth odist preacher ns their first pastor. Montpeller Seminary has had a Rood year: The enrollment had been largo, the discipline easy nnd tho Instruction of the bent. Of course, the annual re port shows a deficit, but seminaries are amotiR tho Institutions able to mnke u Klorlous record when showing a dellclt. Great credit Is due Dr. Iilshop as prin cipal of the school for his Inspirational methods and for tho actual (rood already accomplished. RIGHT TO A LIVING WAGE. The presiding elder urged the adop tion of n better system for raising money for current expenses nnd said there must be an Immediate nnd mark ed Increase In tho preachers- salary. i living expenses were now from 33 to 40 per cent, higher than 15 years urii, vnnco in tie puj ui .-v.-i . .,... It'nltod States senators up to common VatlOe labor, rs. It 1' about time the preacher bo remembered. Will we have to form a union nnd refuse to servo unless we receive a living wage? He urged the necessity of a district parsonnge, saying that In tho past six years he had lived In three houses and his mall had come to various places. Ife Fald there wns a pressing demand for morn recruits In the mln Islry, and young men should be taught that It Is a bigger and better thing to ho truly called to a life of service than allured by the prospects of the questionably obtained wealth of a Hnr rlman. The greatest need to-day was a sweeping revival of religion; one which raises up consecrated laymen nnd makes preachers out of the most unpromising material, but preachers whose words cannot bo gainsaid. In closing, he expressed gratifica tion that there was a limit on tho pre siding eldership; thanked all for the kindness shown him, nnd said his only hope was that he might be permitted somewhere to treat a presiding elder as his brothers have treated him. This was followed bv tho serond an nual report of Presiding Elder Hunt of the St. Albans district. PRKSIDINO EIiDER IICNT. Ill the beginning of this report, the Rev. Mr. Hunt expressed gratitude to God that he had not missed a single ap pointment throughout tho year, nnd that while sickness had prevailed In many of the homes of the preachers yet In nei in stance did he have to record a fatal ill ness. One of the venerable superannuates, tho Rev. W. D. Malcolm, died February y, and Mrs. Nancy C. I'olsom, widow 3f tho Rev. Kllsha Folsnm, whose name was transferred to the roll of the deceased members of tho conference in ISSf, died at St. Albans August 21. These pastoral changes havo occurred during the year: The Rev. G. C. West eott, the npiiolnted supply at North Hero, had a release to attend Montpeller Sem inary, and the Rev. John Loftns was se cured to fill out the year. Miss Harriet Knapp, tho deaconess whohn.s been work ing ut Middlesex, was obliged to give up her work last summer and the pulpit has been very acceptably supplied by the Rev G. S. Westeott. Iist fall (he Rev. G. A. Scott was transferred to New Yoik, leav ing a vacancy at Essex Junction and Es sex, which was filled by securing the Rev. A. C. Brown, an older In the Free Raptlst Church. In November the Rev. J. W, Illsley, stationed by Iilshop Moore at Grand Isle and South Hero, received a call to Nebraska and this charge has been without n pastor since his removal. Two of our eHeemed brothien will probably ask for the superannuated relation at this conference, the, Itev. C. P. Taplln after 44 years of unbroken effective service and the Rev. Sylvester Donaldson, after 4.1 years of active labor In the Itinerancy. Faithfully nnd effectually have they wrought, and worthy are they of the high esteem In which they are held by their brethren. FEDERATION AND REVIVALS. On the subject of church federation no said It was a splendid Ideal but he be lieved It ns a rule Impracticable an.l doubted somewhat Its desirability. "Shall not Methodism bo doing the Lord's will as fully In seeking to strengthen its own and extend its borders, nnd muljlply Its churehes, as it will In waiting and look ing for a federation, which If accomplish cd, would havo In It but little promises of permanency. Wliile church federation may be wl.o In places where an eepiltable ar langement can be made, yet faking our wholo field Into consideration, would It not bo better Instead of wulttng for 111) I ill us nil null.

With the exception of those at Hwnnton tbe meetings were In union with some other church. Moro than 300 conversions have been reported to the presiding elder and ncirly as many The Change of Life Sensible Advice to Women from nrs. Henry Lee, Mrs. Fred Certia and firs. Plnkham. MRS HENRY LEE Owing to modern methods of living' not one woman in a thousand ap-pi-oadios this perfectly natural change without experiencing a train of very annoying nnd sometimes painful symptoms. This is tho most critical period of her whole existonce and every woman wlfo neglects the caro of her health nt this time invites disease nnd pain. When her system is in a deranged condition or she is predisposed to apoplexy or congestion of tiny organ, the tendency is nt this period HK-oly to become) active and with a liostof nervous irritntions mnltc life a burden. At this time also cancers and tumors aro moro liable to form and begin their destructive work. Such warr ng symptoms as seuso of suffocation, hot flushes, headaches, bneltaches, m 'lancholia, dread of im pending evil, palpitation of the heart, irregularities, constipation and dizzi ness are promptly heeded by intel ligent women who are approaching the period o' .ife when this groat change may bo expected. Mrs. Fred" Certia. 1014 So. Lafayette Streot, So. Ilcud, Intl., writes: Dear Mrs. l'inkham: "Lvdla E.

The attenuance us on the Increase, and the Instruction is constantly ImprovliiR in dcflnlteness and thoroughness. The "men's Ulblu class" Is successful featuru In some of the rluiols. Mr. Hunt fald he wns tillable to Klve a veiy glowing report of tlio Up worm League, nttiiljiltliiR its condition to thu difllculty In securliiB efficient leaders n presidents, and said that In a few in stances all that remained of the organi zation was the framed chatter hanging on the vestry wall. lie praised the work of the district lilble school which pivcei-.led tlio einip meeting and said It promised permanency. He spoke of th legislation at Montpeller last fall, allowing tho association to en large Its scope, and said that Its property consists now of So acres of land laid out Into streets and lots. The camp will bo known hereafter as tlio Rlversldo camp of the St. Albans district of the Vermont conference. NEW CHUI1CRKS ERECTED. Tlireo new cliurches have been erecti'd during the year, at Middlesex, Underbill, nnd Sheldon. Tho church at Middlesex was dedicated 111 November nnd cost a- bout $3,Cii. The church at Underbill le placed thi edlllcff burned Inst July. Iloth were dedicated free of debt, while the chapel nt Hlce hill in the Sheldon charge cost f,yy1. A mortgage of KQi was raised on the parsonage at St. Albans Hay, through tho persistent laoors of tho pas tor, the Itev, A. W. Ford. We now on this barge hn,ve tho peculiar situation of a f,ood parsonage, nearly new, hut a society so weak that sufficient funds cannot b raised to support a man as resident paFtor. A number of the churches have received bequests during tho year, the total a mounting to nearly SKl.OoO. A piece of farm property from the estate of tho late Jo.'eph Hean of the town of Milton, to the value of about $3,orl, will soon come Into the hands of the Milton and Mlltnn- boro charge. A bequest of $1,000 has also comv to tbe church at ninghamvllle, the Income to aid In the support of preaching. He thought that the total benevolences from the districts would show a falling off. Nearly all the chaiges report net gains, but the lns will come from In dividual subscriptions. The amount ap portioned from this district for the Mont peller Seminary endowment fund Is all practically assured. In several charges n disposition lias already been manifested to advance tin- estimates for pastoral support the ensuing vear. None of our preachers are overpaid, many of them are undeipild. Not until a larger numbor of our people, shall havo j a righteous system to regulato their giv ing, and shall be ready to give as tho Ijrd has prospered them, may we hope to see tho prosperity of Zlon financially." FRATERNAL GREETINGS RECEIVED Fraternal greetlngn were received from Dr. William V. Kelley, editor of tho Methodist Review; Secrtary T. A.

If. Webb of nrattlo boro, tlio Rev. W. A. Frye of New Jer- soy spoke upon Immigration taking ns his theme, "Tho Sign of tho Cross nnd the Ontes of Empire." His address was crowded with facts and figures, full of oloquenco nnd optimism. Ho said tho church must settlo the grent problem as statesmen truckled too much to tho voter nnd the political nspeets of tlio quostlon. Incidentally In denouncing brl- bory he wondered If that law was still onNveternn ought to know whnt his experl the Vermont statutes that disenfranchised enco was and his gift of Uncle Sam's any man that wns guilty of giving or tak- money to help support an ox-rebol shows Ing a brlbo.

(From tho Rutland Herald.) Some of the veterans of the Civil War, who have not applied for a pension for various reasons, now that the government has firanted a service pension to all the survivors of that great conflict, nre at their wits' ends to know what to do with It. Former Commissioner of Pensions Eugene Wnre, who watched the applicants for pensions with an eaglo eye while In office, and who had a conspicuously framed motto over his desk announcing thnt "God Hates a Liar," has decided to bestow his pension upon tho child of a soldier, nnd will so transfer It. Hut thd most unhiiio disposition of tho service peu- slon wo have noted Is that of Cnpt. E. F, Grlswold of St. Johnsbury, who hns do- voted his to R. E, Leo Camp of Confeder- nto Soldiers nt Richmond, Va., for a In- mato of a soldiers' homo "In recognition of kindness shown me while a prisoner." Captain Grlswold served threo years In tho Union army and was twice an Inmate, of Llbby prison, having been onco recap tured nnd returned to that malodorous spot after having traveled .100 miles north- ward toward tho I'nlon lines. It may he a surprise to most people, even 10 years after tho war, that anybody received "kindness" In Ubby prison. Wo have been led to believe that kindness was one of the qualities conspicuous by Its absence within those walls. Hut the St. Johnsbury that his gratitude Is real, nnd has a foun dntlon In fact, The Incldont ut any rate serves to Illustrate, the truth that the war is over, nnd that men mo. moro and moro coining to reallr.o that thero Is no North, no South, but one country.

One of this vil lage's principal Industries, giving employ ment to 30 or to men, was almost en tirely destroyed this afternoon when the Oreen Mountain Pulp mill caught Urn. Tho loss will he from J.'AOOO to 60,n0O on which an Insurance of KO.000 was carried and Manager Robert Carttnell Is not sure to-night whether the mill will be rebuilt or not. The fire caught In the boiler room where workmen were engaged In blowing out the boiler. A telephone call was sent the chief of the tire department, C. F. Rich, who called out the cntlro force of firemen. The call waa received at 8:20 and a quick run made to tho mill which Is outside the hydrant system and locat ed on Otter creek a milo from the center of the village. 1'umps at the mill were the only means nvallablo hut Chief Rich sent back for the steamer and ns the pumps soon gave out he was dependent on it nlono. With this the lower story of the building was saved nnd most of the press room, throe of the presses being In fair condition when tho fire was under control at six o'clock. In the near by mill yard were Ifln.ono feet of logs which were prevented from catching fire by hard work. The Oreen Mountain pulp mill was built Ij years ago anil with tho marble mill formed Mlddlebury's chief manufacturing business. It wns a large frame building, three stories high on the river and on- story on the other side. It was T shaped and about 100x200 feet in dimensions. Owing to certain unsatisfactory local conditions the manager, ex-Senator Rob ert Cnrtmell, stated to-night that he Is In doubt ns to whether the mill will bo re built or not. In view of the Inadequate fire protection the Inflammable nature of the structure and the early giving out of the pumps at the mill, tbe work of the local fire depart ment In saving as much of the building as It did with tbe steamer alone is regarded with satisfaction. Firemen guarded the smouldering ruins- all night. SUES HIS FATHER-IN-LAW. UN for ?."0,OfMI fur Allecrril Alienation of Wife's A tVeetlons. Rennlngton. April 19. Forrest L. Jepson of Schenectady, N.
