Whitney has purchased the Burlington Clipper and taken pos session. The first number under his management looks well and reads well, and we feel sure he will make it a live and wide-awake local paper. t;h; village ulacksmitii.

A WORD OF WARNING. There are rr-ny w!:.'te zi!3, 8?.ch rrp'ejented to be " just as good as the ' Ivory ' : " they AKt NOT, but like ail counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qui! the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and Insist upon getting it. Copyright, 1R86, by Procter A Gamble. f It is about time for John A. Brook the third party candidate tor vice-pres ident, to be bottled up and laid away. Ho has won the place of champion tool of the campaign. He had an abomin able political record to begin with, and then like the old darkey he never could open his mouth without being liable to put his foot in it. He has now stolen the title that somebody gave to Blaine and attached it to Cleveland. "Un crowned king" is good ! "discrowned king" is infinitely more appropriate. Iirooks should go into a dime museum. The effort made by some of the mem bers of the legislature to secure to wo men the right to vote does not seem to have been appreciated by the women themselves. It is clear from the com ments reported to have been made by the wives of members and others that woman suffrage sentiment is not very strong in this state. Vermont women do not quite see how political duties and responsibilities are compatible with their duties as wives and mothers. Most are content to let the men run the ma chine while they act as the power be hind the throne. We do not suppose that any of those who oppose the giving of the ballot to women do soon the "round of their incapacity, as some who are aggrieved would represent, but they simply question the propriety of the measure. We believe now as for nierlv, that when the women of this or any other commonwealth almost ttni versallv demand the ballot it will be granted to them ; but, so long as nine' tenths are opposed or indifferent it is folly to force it upon them. The little baud of woman suffragists in this state has an educational work to do before our legislators will be ready to incor porate their schemes into the body of our laws. 45 CENTS INTERESTING TO VETERANS.

Dr. (ieorge Dutton, formerly prin cipal of West Kandolph academy, has come to the surface again, this time in the character of an opponent of vacci nation, lie appears before the com mittee of public health and protests a giiinst compelling persons to submit to vaccination. He argues that the prac tice is unhealthy, that it spread dis ease, etc. Well, the Dr. isn't anything without a hobby, and we presume this is as harmless as any be can ride, as our legislators w ill not be likely to pay much attention to it.

We can hardly un derstand whv the Governor and Coun- il should have taken this action, unless because of stiueaniihncss about hatifr- ing a woman. l!ut when a woman makes a h'end of herself it seems as though she ought to be treated as a man would lie treated under similar circumstances. Vermont authorities ilid not forget their duties to the public The ques tion of sex should be passed by entirely when great criminals arc to be dealt with. and it see The marriage of Joseph Chamberlain a prominent English politician, to the daughter of Secretary Endicott.and the prospective marriage of a member ol the ISritish Embassy to another Amer ican girl, has alarmed the English pa pers, and the American girl is now un dergoing a thorough discussion. The idea that our girls should compete and win in the English market is distaste ful to them. It would not be surpris ing if the English should attempt to check the importation of American wives by means of a high tariff. We would recommend some of these per turbed writers, befo-e finishing the dis cussion to come over and see the girl. i Thev have only to come and see and be conquered. But all joking aside, is it not a good thing tor prominent anil in fluential families, whe'her titled or un titled, to lonn these domestic alliances. J The legislature of 1" provided for the appointment of a laiard of commis sioners to investigate thu condition of the Normal Schools and make such suggestions anil recominenilations as seemed best to them. The work of this commission and that of the com mission appointed to prepare a new school bill touched in p-irt iiini) com mon ground. In accordance with the joint resolution (!ov. Orinsbee appoint ed Jonathan Koss, II. (I. Wheeler ,Jtis tus Dartt, II. M. Wilhird and Edward II. Dutchcr as coiiniii-sioners. These gentlemen have made their report to the present legislature. We made ref erence to it briefly last week, we wish to speak of it mure fully this week. At the end of the report are figures giving the number of graduates from the three normal schools of the state since their organization. From thc-e it appears that Castleton has graduated i'.U't ; Handolph, 770 ; Johnson, IS.S.j ; total. 1 I'iO. Randolph has graduated more than both of the other schools. These schools have-' received from the state appropriations varying in amount from ?1,."00 to nearly 811,000, total a ni'Hint appropriated ?10S,('8."i. Most of these students have been natives of Vermont, and the larger proportion have come from those sections in which the schools were located. Two points are made'agaiiist existing arrangements one is. that there should be one nor mal scho-d instead of three. We take I executions to this. It would be better i to increase rather than diminish the number of our normal school. We believe our common schools can be im proved through them more than thro' any other agency. Better multiply our normal schools and not build so many Bennington battle monument. These are the monuments that do honor to any counnonwealih. The more schools there are the more students there will be in them. These schools take the place of the old academies in the sec tions w here located so far as an Eng lish education is concerned. We do not believe the statement needs any proof, that other things lieitig equal, the jrraJuates "f our normal schools: make the most efficient teachers. The existing schools do not furnish only a small proportion of the teachers need ed for the common schools. If the nor mal school are doing a good work e quip them lor more work so long as that work is needed. And facts show that the work is needed. The consoli dation of these schools would most like ly diminish the total numlwT of normal pupils in the state Bust wick Post at Underbill recently held a well attended campfire. The Rutland Sons of Veterans gave an entertainment Friday the 10th. The il. A. K. Post at Newport gave an entertainment at their hall last Fri day evening. Governor Dillingham has signed the bill making the regular appropriation to the Soldier's Home. The G. A. K. boys of Bennington have engaged C. M. Russell of Wil mington to deliver his illustrated Get tysburg lecture in Library Hull, Fri day ami .Saturday evenings, the 2od ami 24th inst. The youngest soldier in the war was Alfred C.

Busbee is nrepanng Many good teachers are now made up 0 oave Morrisville. from the raw material of whom the Wilhinl Sti....t..r r.f V..., u ublic would have known nothing if i vear lit Rutland for stealing poultry. 1 only one school had existed The other point is, that the one uor- mal school recommended be located in some large community, so that the pu- can have the benefit of training schools and demonstrate their aptness to teach. They more than broadly hint that the normal schools located as they now are in small communities do not give to pupils the training demand ed for the practical work of teaching. Theory and practice should be connect ed in u course of training, and our im pressiou is, so far as the Randolph school is concerned that the theory and practice are combined. Some of the time, at least, there has been a training school in connection with the institution and very few of the graduates of that school, who were intending to teach hne passed through the prescribed course of study without some experience in the practical work of teaching in the districts and towns near their homes or in the vicinity ol the normal school. This is a natural method of training not an artificial one. This s just the kind the. pupils need. We question w hether it be the best method to place a teacher in a city school under the eye of a normal schoolteacher. The posi tion is too constrained and ari'lieial. (iive the pupils points upon teaching, discipline them thoroughly lor their work and then scud them out to apply these points according' to the ability gained, independent of any direct per sonal supervision. More of the good sought by the state can be secured un der the present arrangement than under that suggested. There is a sense in which each normal school is the center of a large field of training schools, in which the independence and resources of the teachers are developed and bro't into use. It seems to us as though the report of these commissioners might have been made much shorter and convey all that they intended. Stripped of all that is superfluous it might be made to read : Let us have one normal school iti the state and let it be located at It is not probable Burlington, where it can come under ers at ; prices. that any one school could gather to its ' ,he eve 0f ,le i -. ..I.
