The spirit which binds Vermonte.rs together In whatever part of the coun try they may bo Is well Illustrated by Hio following statement printed by tho Council Muff Nonpareil: ''Associations of Vermontcrs In tho different pnrts of the "West havo al ways attracted a good elcal of atten tion from thoso promoting the 'home coming celebrations In our good old "Jiatlvo .State, and Incidentally havo re sulted In many social gatherings In different sections of this western country," recently remarked a vener nblo Vermonter residing In this city.

ACROSS ON A TEN-DAY BOAT Atlantic Tr!i for a Tlrnl Man VhcIii btl!y on n Slim -bulling Mi-aiiier. (Charles B. Ixmmls in New York Sun.) Have ou uver traveled on an avowedly slow -'dp? "Getting time quickly" Is a fine American habit If you an' pressed for time and don't mind vibratory exer cise continued night and day fur five or six days, but if you nn thoioughly tired out and want to go where school doesn't ki-op and you can do as you please lot mo recommend a slow steamer. Of course, you must not be seasick. That Is the first rulu of the game. Now In order not to bo seasick It is just as well to comn of a long lino of senfearln? people. Run back to the Vikings if pos sible. Imagine a seasick Viking! Von cannot, because thero never was one. Having established your nautical an cestry to your own satisfaction the next thing Is to bo a careful guardian of your stomach from your earliest years. If you can line your parents and grandparents careful guardians of theirs from their earliest years it will lie better yet, but I am not insisting on impossibilities. Nov,- then, for at least M months before sailing Insist on the proper countersign from every bit of food that enters your mouth. Mluco pie and t-c.ttlops at mid night should be sunt to tho guai dhouso. They aro a boisterous pair and will rough-house u man's stuinach from sheer lovo of mischief, Thero are many other roisterers. You ought to know them when they come. The connterilgu. by tho way, la very old, albeit a trifle long: "Now good di gestion wait on nppotlte and health on both." Aro you ready? Up tho gangplank then and bid goed-by to cars. See that ho charters no tug and that If he docs ho Is not allowed his right as a free-born American citizen to causo trouble to others. Cast off without him nnd give yourself up to tho best Imitation of b soluto happiness to be found. You need not court sleep. Sleep will court you. Why, th first 43 hours I slept sc. And If you nre mentioning ap petite! If you ar0 energetic a walk of from three to six miles a day win u, found beneficial. It uets in two ways. It gives you a ravenous appetite nnd It makes a ravenous appetite safe to huibor. Give yourself up to being friendly after a day or two of reft. Remember that tho man In the unoklng-room who Is so silent nnd who slth muling or thinking whllo he puffs mioke ,U his feet Is only waiting for you to offer some coinmonphu'e llko "Unite a run to-day, S3) miles," to causo bis future to relax and his mouth to open, and In five, minute time ho will bo telling you the story or his lllo und you will bu swapping remlnlsi encis of school days In the mlddlo West, or your first trips as tnnclllne salesman or, but this is an extreme liijstpnre.- how you propos ed the llrst time you did It. Lefoio the voyage h over ho will con fess to you that he had seen you walking solemnly around tho proinenado deck unit he had thounht you u taciturn nnd dis gruntled mail, Tho man or woman who Is not dying fur frlpiulllness on board an ocean steamer Is a rnra avis. This siting up of your fellow-mortals fioni their appearance Is a curious game. Any one ran bo an adept at It If ho Is never called upon to piove hli conclu- 10 IS, Mrs, It, nt the second table, wlio over. 11 mil the ,.. pmiu railing down a cirelrun itlor foi npiiiinu mi paim un u pablicll. gcr's dress, writes homo to her slstert "Tho captain Is a, burly brute, red facftd. and hot tempered, 1 havo not met him, but 1 havo read his chnrnetor to a nlcoty. Such u display of Ill-temper at a poor f-allor who had dono nothing that I could 11 tut out you never saw." lint Mrs. 11. did not seo him tench s little olght-ycnr-old girl to glvo him a butterfly kiss. It was a pretty sight. Bho had never heard of It, so Ae lifted her In his big nnns nnd, putting his sen-rcddenel race against her apartment whitened check, winked his eyelashes on It. "Thoro dearie, that's a butterfly l:ls." (This In broad Bcotrh ) Those who sat at tablo with him sized him up for a witty nnd Jolly man, with u ncuman's breadth sometimes, It must ba confessed, but with a sailor's simplicity always. Onco ho said: "Did you over hear tho story? run away, Johnny, nnd play on tho deck; tako an orange along. Good by." Then, after Johnny had gone, ho went on: "Vc'rd nil married," und Mulsh ed his shnll Wo say "wide" ptory? Thero was no harm In it, and all tho whllo an organist on his holiday was plsvlng "Lead kindly light," on a llttto cabinet organ In tho music-room above. An octognnal captain, nnd, llko Capt. Corcoran of his majesty's ship rinnforo, "beloved by all tho crew, a really popular commander." Then camo a bit of roush weather; nothing to causo the. flutter of an eyolld to the extent of a butterilly kiss on tho part of a ship's officer, but direful In tho extreme to thoso women who were up In hysterical parts, one very heavy wave upset a woman Insecurely r rated nnd sent her and her baby ."pt.iwilng on tlm deck. Tho captain happened to be passing, and ho picked up the baby and cuddled It nud coddled It. Then he picked up tho mother, offered her a Scotch pleasantry she was Scotch her self and W(!U on his wny. After be had unn the mother came bT me and In a S"otch that would sound v eil, did sound well, but would look 111 In ptlnt. snld. "Do you think there Is any chnnea of the bont being saved?" Ono might have Joked with her, but her distress was too evident. She wrung her hands ns sbo snuggled her baby to her breii.st and moaned in terror. 1 called her attention to the young men holding on to tho tnffrnil nnd shouting In high spirits at the rolling of tho ehlp and asked her If (he thought there could be danger of shipwreck and no evidence of It in any face but hrrs, but she will tell her friends In mldocenn while the captnln probably forgot by evening that nny ono hml thought tt rough In the morning. I wish Mrs. H. had seen the captain rescue that baby. I wish people didn't slzo up other pernio on such Insufficient evidence. I'll venture to say that Mrs. 11. is of a gos siping disposition, A.s the days go on if the passenger list Is small the traveleis become nuinbers of a large, good-humored family. A poor llttlo Joko Hint would not causo a ripplo on land Is prospered by gales of laughter at Its birth at sea and becomes n sort of catchword for all. Sra, air makes folk simple-hearted. And then comes tho ship's concert, tho money from which goes to make sailor's orphans happy. Ti'trazzinl ha,s to cross the ocean if she wishes to get to tlip other sldo. So dues Otis Skinner. So do John A. Lukens of Smithvllle, Vt., who plays tho Jewsharp, and Miss Florence O. James of East Lib erty, Ind., who Is not kind to pianos, cross the ocean if they would go to Europe. The result Is obvious. When tho ener getic cltl.un who gets up tho concert he may be an express mevsonger from Texiet-looks at the passenger list or calls for volunteers It Is certain that John A Lukcns's heart will bleeil ror tho orphans, and getting his Jewsharp out of Ills stea mer tiunk he 'Oil offer his services to tho man fivm Texas. .Miss Jones's lingers will Itch, and her tongue will burn to tell what the piano Is net safe from when she lets loose. Then Trtrnzztnl Is asked for a contribution and Is fornil to refuse "owing to her contract with Hninmer stiln" and Otis Skinner Is roped In for Romeo's part of the bnicony scone. Ant1 they find a retiring fellow with a loely lyric tenor voice. He lb going across to have It cultivated and he can play his own accompaniments, for he is a real musician. Now bring on your concert. If you aro a performer you will stand behind a pil lar that pre vents almos.1 anyone from see. lug voir and you will do your prettiest for those poor orphans. If you nro a plain passenger with no parlor tricks you will sit In your scat and try to catch a glimpse of the performer and will split the palms of your hands applauding Romeo, jewsharp and music banlsher alike; nnd the women will rovo over tho llttlo tenor Just as if ho were a Caruso. Perhaps ho will be nome day. Then how the qunrters nud tho dimes will Jingle, their ring deadened here and there by falling on a greenback! Lucky llttlo orphans who never gain any benellt from ships' concerts. At lat you sail up the lovely Clydo after you have had a fascinating gllmpsn of Ireland's green shores, and if you nro very lucky tho sun &hlnes on Scotch heather and make such pictures that you do not wonder that Glasgow artists are at tho bead of their class in Great lirituln, Tho ship Is at rest, thu god-byes are nid nud knots of new-found friend who will cling together for several das go In quest of different hotels. You could eat n whale. You're at top weight. You'ro so good-natured you don't know yourself. Oh, a 10-day voyngi; If you're not seasick, Is a thins that mujt ha tried to bo appreciated.

To the Editor of The Free Press: List summer a lady gave a llttlo girl three turkey eggs. She anxiously watched for tho hatching time, nnd after 2S days hatched out one llttlo turkey She watched and fed the llttlo bird, which llko other little turkeys had Its sick and well days and finally developed Into .i gobbler, which was a great disappoint ment to her. She advertised him for sale In the Hur llngton Freo Press and received 15.00 for him. (She Invested her money In two hen tur keys and her father bought her two more, and a broruo and wild gobbler which cot $0.30. Then a person threatened she would see that thoy did not raise" any turkeys and procured a dog warranted to bring a tur key every tlmo it was sent after ono. The llttlo girl watched her turkeys, gathered her etrgs until she had 120 eggs. She then set CO eregs under thri'e hen turkeys and the other under hens and waited for tho hatching time. Last Sunday they found one turkey mysteriously dead orr the nest with tho emts Just hatching. Monday night the barn was entered and the other turkeys taken nnd shut out of the barn, the feathers all torn out of one nnd scattered along the street north of whero they live. Thirteen eggs, were missing from one nest, the other eggs were partly hatched but nil were spoiled and destroyid. AVednesday night the same little girl had two set tings of Hrown Leghorn eggs taken from tho Natural Hen Incubator, which was near the house, probably by tin.' same par ties. A few dnys later their little cosslt lamb wns taken mysteriously sick nnd has died under very suspicious circum stances. FLORICNCE E. LACY. Illl'i: T Till', tit itnt:. (From tho Cincinnati Enquirer.) It is relnted of Napoleon that he was walking one day with a companion along a narrow roadway ctrt In the rock which held him a prisoner, when they met u laborer struggling tip the hill bearing n heavy burden. The companion showed a disposition to shove him out of the way, but Napoleon, with gentle courtesy, stepped aside to let him pass, saying us he did so, "Respect the burden." It seems ns though it would be a uni versal human Impulse, whan n fellow man 's struggling with dlfllcultles, doing tho best ho ctn to oercotne them, nnd carry Ina a load almost too heavy for nny one to stand up under, to give him a lift, If po-slhlc, or at lenst to stnnd out of the way and "respect the burden." As a mat ter of fact, It Is generally dono, so far ns tho titfsirs nf ever) -day life nro con cerned, but onco politics enter, nil con siderations of charity, sympathy or ordinary coiutcsy seem to vanish. The president of the Fnlted States is u con-i'teuous victim of tills perfectly hu man tendency. Rearing, a ho does, a griat load of responsibility, to which ho is undoubtedly bringing honest nnd un tiring effort, the public might, with en lire propriety, respect and observe tho admonition of tho Corsica n quoted above.
