USE IVORY SOAP IN THE STABLE.
THE Ivory Soap is most excellent fr washing galled spots,
scratches, etc., etc., on horses, for it will cleanse without irri
tating, and the vegetable oils of which it is made arc cooling and
healing in effect.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many w!iite soaps, each represented to be "just as good as t!ie ' Ivory ' j"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualifies
if tne genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

The canvHss just closed has been a
school for the nation. Fvery one has
leurned more about the tariff than he
knew before. This has been the bur
den tif thousands of speeches before im
mense audiences, all over the north and
west and in some parts of the South.
Almost every one has had an opportu
nity to read tariff history, to learn of
the nature and purpose of protective
measures, and hereafter when there is
legislation upon these mutters the peo
ple will know better what it means.
It may be said of the campaign just
closed that we have passed through it
with as little low abuse as any ("iin
paign in our history. It may be the
beginning of better days in respect to
the character of our political contests.
A little wit or fatire maybe enlivening
but scurrility is degrading. It may not
be out of place to tell the truth about
men and to criticize public acts, but
the practice of lying about men. of mis
representing niotics to destroy charac
ter and weaken intluetiee should be con
demned. iVc look more and more for
the discussion of great national tpics
tions in a spirit of candor.
Cabinet speculations are now the or-i
der. Newspapers are busy in forming
them. Next in importance to the se
lection of a president is the selection of
counselors, and while the people attend
to the former the president-elect must
attend to the latter. There are men,
however, whose names will readily
suggest themselves as suitable for cub
inet positions. Warner Miller, Gov.
Alger, Allison of Iowa, arc mentioned
along with others. Frye of Maine will
no doubt be the New Knglaiid member
though we should be pleased to sec Ver
mont honored in this direction. The
republican element of the South must
be recognized, and Golf of West Y ir
giniit is pointed out as the coming man.
The republican victory in Delaware
must be a great surprise to the people
of that state. Delaw are has been a
kind of a pocket borough for a great
manv years, the Hayard and Salisbury
families carrying it. There ha really
beeti no jMilitical freedom in that state.
There has beeu a law of the state re
quiring of every man that lie should
register and pay a poll tax before licing
allowed to vote. Registration Ixiards
have been entirely under democratic
control, and they have so managed af
fairs as to secure the registration of
democrat and keep the name of re
publicans orf the lists as much as pos
sible. To do this the lwianls met at
irregular times and places and while
the dene HTats were all notified no word
was sent to the republicans. l'roxy
pavinents were accepted from the dem
ocrats. life the republicans were re

Silpt. Dartt takes a rather gloomy
view of the condition of our schools.
Our schools are not as good as they
ought to he, but we do not believe they
are hs bad as it is the fashion V rep
resent thent. We have a great many
schools in poor districts, where it seems
necessary to employ cheap teachers, but
we have many excellent schools, many
excellent teachers, doing a good work
in all parts ot the state. AVe arc grad
uating excellent scholars from our grad
ed schools, fitting a goodly number of
young men and women for higher insti
tutions of learning and sending them
thither, some in our own tate and oth
ers without. We are not relapsing into
such a state of ignorance as will soon
make Vermont missionary ground, lint
we ought to devise some method of
I remedying existing defects and render
. r. ... . . , . ....
our scnoois mortj emciciii, which we
think can be done, even at the present
cost of maintaining them.
We have received a copy of the re
port of the commissioners upon the Nor
mal Schools. In this report the com
missioners say they have attended to
the duties imposed upon them, visited
the Normal S hotils, observed their dai
ly work and familiarized themselves
with former reports of their condition
and work, etc. They give tables. show
ing the number of graduates from each
school and the amount of money re
ceived by them, so far an they were a-
ble to ascertain. It is not necessary
to follow the reMirt through, suffice it
to say, the tenor of it is opposed to the
present arrangement and in favor of one
school situated so us to accommodate
all portions of the state. The fact is,
the report is an argument against three
schools and in favor of one. We un
derstand that the reHirt does not meet
with favor in the legislature, and that
its recommendation will probably not
be adopted. The report of the school
commission will not, as tilings now ap
pear, meet with much favor, though it
is possible sonic feature of the bill will
be incoi poratcd into existing law s.
The election on Tuesday, Nov. tith.
passed off very quietly in Vtrmont
republican majority varying but little j
from the Septemberelection. Of course
Harrison and Morton were elected.

Harrison electors. Conn, is very close,
and at this w riting there is some uncer
tainty about the result, w ith chances in
favor of the democrats. Outside of N.
England the interest was more intense,
because of some states that stood in the
doubtful list. The Republicans carried
all of the Northern and I'acific States
except New Jersey. They made gains
iu West Virginia and Delaware. In
the latter state they have elected a re
publican legislature which will choose
a senator in place of Saulshury. This
is a new state of affairs for that little

the other side of the old confederacy, a
republican representative having been
chosen from Iiuisiana. Indiana and

generally conceded that the result in
those two states would determine the
general result. Indiana, the home tif
Harrison gives him a plurality of over

ticket, goes republican by about 10.000
majority, though the democrats elected

bv saying that the republicans would
have won without New York or David
Hill to help. The democrats of New
York do not feel highly elated with the
result in their own state, for they have
lost Cleveland in winning 1 1 ill. The
democrats made up the issue for this
campaign, free trade against protection
j anil they have lost in the tight. The
j republican gains almost everywhere in
the republican states and in some that
have almost always been democratic,
show that the prevailing sentiment of
the people of this country is iu favor of
protection to home industries. Hut the
republicans have not only gained the
presidency, they have secured a major
ity in the National House of Represent
ative. This, with one or two more
senators, of which they are reasonably
sure, place the administration of the
government, once more, in good repub
lican working order. The result of the
election show sonic things, that we
may specify and set iu order :
First, whether free trade, be right or
wrong as a matter of national policy,
the sentiment of the people of this coun
try is opposed to it, as we have already
intimated. It has been a long time
' since the matt' r was brought so dis
tinctly into our national politics as iu
the canvass just closed. Heretofore
(or a long period people have talked a
bout it, at various times listened to ar
guments for and against, now they have
given a decided expression to their opin
ions on the subject. This generation,
like the former, believes in protecting
Second, the democratic party has
failed to satisfy the people of the coun
try in the character of its administra
tion. It took possession of the govern
ment with the cry of reform. It did
not take long to satisfy the people that
this word meant nothing in a demo-
I cratic dictionary. There have been
I no reform inaugurated. It has been
I found impossible for the party to reform
anvthing. There are no elements ot
reform in it. Reform must begin at
home and whenever a political reform
ation come over a democrat lie goes
out of the parly. The democratic ex
periment of the last four years is as

risk and they have placed the adminis
tration of the government back into
the hands of the only party that for the
last thirty years has show n ilself capa
ble of governing in such a manner as
to give confidence to the people and
dignity and character to it in the eyes
of other nations.
Third, with an administration in the
hand of the republicans, we may con
fidently look for a revival of industries
that have been partially paralyzed by
the fear of free trade. We may look
for a steady national policy for a term
of years at least, for now justice will
lie done to certain territories that have
been seeking admission to the Union,
but which have beeu kept out because
they were republican. It may be the
