In the work he lias done on that paper during the last few years he leaves an excellent record behind him. It is to be hoped that he will remain in the state in some newspaper connection for he is an excellent editorial writer and such men are none too plenty. A Philadelphia correspondent of the Maine Farmer who signs himself "A Swedi.sh Visitor," hag been visiting the creameries of New Kngland and given an expression of his views of them, lie says the following about the creamery in this place : "The finest creamery you haTe in New Kngland is undoubtedly the one at West Itandolph, Vermont, and it surpasses everything I have seen for compactness and convenience, and any one intending to build a creamery would do well to visit it. It was, I believe, designed by the operator, to whom great credit is due." The executive committee of the Re publican League of Vermont receutly held a meeting in Burlington. Oificers were chosen for the coming year, there being ouly a few changes in the old board. Ex-Gov. Proctor was not pres ent but having declined to serve as pres ident any longer, Col. J. J. Estey was chosen in his place. Delegates to the national convention at Baltimore in February were chosen. It was thought best not to hold any state convention the present year, inasmuch as politics would not be very lively among us. The organization will be kept and be ready to enthuse the people when occa sion requires. The fire at Gaysville was a very un fortunate affair. It is not simply that the interests of the little village of Gays ville were seriously impaired, the peo ple driven to seek employment else where, but one of the industries of the state has been injured, one of the few mills we have, destroyed. An excellent water power remains, but there is noth ing for it to do. It seems to be a set tled thing that the burned mills are not to be re-built. The company that rua them has separated into its component parts. Judge Gay died before the ca lamity came upon the firm. His wife who retained a portion of his interest and allowed it to remain in the busi ness has since died. Mr. Kimball has closed out his mercantile business and removed to Burlington and formed new business relations there, and soon Mr. Ilolden, we learn, will go into manu facturing at Penacook, N. II. This disposes of those who were active part ners in the concern. The older ones do not appear to care to undertake the work of rebuilding and reviving the business. The directors of the Woodstock & Rutland road recently held a meeting and the prospect of entering upon the work of construction seems brighter than it has forborne time. There ought to be a road built from Woodstock to Rutland. We need better facilities for getting aeross the state than we now possess. e can go norm ana ttoutn but when we wish to visit our neigh bors just over the mountain we must take a long journey around and be out over nieht. v nen tins roatt nas Deen constructed then a branch can be ex tended up Whito river and open for de velopmeut some of the best portions of the state. Such a road will make ea sily accessible an abundance of wood and lumber. It will run close by what appear to be ledges of granite of excel lent quality, near an abundance of soap stone, limestone, and it may be other stones and minerals that have not yet been discovered, and through a farming region now prosperous, and only wait ing for connection by rail with the out side worm io increase us prouueuve- . . i r . . . t - . ! ness two ana tnree-mia. n e nope that some of the plans proposed will take shape before long and something be accomplished. Where shall the Dew insane asylum be located ? is the question. Put it where it will be most easily accessible to the largest number of people who need to patronize it, is our answer. One item of business of special in terest to be transacted at the town meet ing in March is the election of a mem ber of the county board of education, upon which will devolve the duty of choosing the county supervisor of schools under the new school law. The duties ot the board are not specially onerous or their responsibilities great aside from this one duty that bus been entrusted to them. Before March meeting candidates for the office of su pervisor will appear. The people will have time to make up their minds as to whom they would prefer, and when the time comes to vote for a member of the choosing board, they can vote for the man whom they think will best carry out their wishes in the matter. It is to be hoped that this board in the vari ous counties will not be too deeply im pressed with the idea that seems to prevail with our legislatures and feel that they must select a member of their own body. And it is to le hoped fur ther, that these boards will not select supervisors who are openly opposed to the law. Let the law have a fair trial. THE WINTER OF 1888-9. For the benefit of the "oldest inhab itant" of the future, we wish to place on record a statement regarding weath er the present season. This is written on the 17th day of January, lluin has fallen during the former part of the day, at noon the sun was shining quite warm, there is uo snow to bo seen, ex cept a thin covering on the summits of the highest hills, the streets in the vil lage and the roads in the region about are muddy antl there is more the ap pearance of spriDg than of winter. So tar the present winter there has not been a decisive snow storm. There have been some light snow-fnlls or flur ries of snow, aud on the occasion of the first one in November a few sleighs were taken from their summer quarters and dragged over frozen ground aud ice in the vain attempt to force the sea son. But these were put aside to await a turn in the tide. The thermometer has descended to zero only on one or two occasions and then quickly mount ed the scale. The general range of temperature has been from twenty to fifty degrees above zero, with much cloudy weather, a great amount of rain, not much wind, and a few remarkably pleasant days. The surface of the ground has frozen and thawed several times, holding the rainfalls tear the top and quickly filling the streams. In the intervals between the rain-storms there has been excellent traveling on much used roads. Lack of snow has impeded wood and lumber business, and the crying want ot lumbermen has been, more snow and less rain. Some maple sugar has been made by parties anxious to see what could be done. No ice has been gathered yet. There has beenjin unusual amount of skating. The trees have shown signs of renewed life by swelling buds, and some kiuds of birds accustomed to migrate in the autumn have remained until the pres ent. In many gardens the more hardy flowers have blossomed, and many unseasonable things have been found . in the fields. The weather prophets have prophesied in vain. The past summer and fall have been wet and cool. There were indications of an early winter. Frost the first of the autumn killed the corn, snow fell the last of September. Soon after the 1st of December the weather took a turn, and all one's calculations were upset. Meat froze but it soon thawed and the winter's stock that was to be enjoyed fresh was put into the salt barrel. In some cases sheep were allowed to run ;,, fie(s ard forC!,ts And the kind of i weather that has prevailed in Vermont has been quite common through the north and west. From almost all sec tions of these states the mildness of the season occasions much comment. The work of building has been carried right along. Work in the fields has not been uncommon. Some farmers have been ploughing in the Southern part of this state. There lies before us a Boston paper in which we are told that among the many incidents that come to the knowledge of the editor illustrating the mildness of the season are several from Conn. One young lady picked violets in her garden, another a bunch of dan delions in the field. One man had been weeding his strawberry bed and was looking for blossoms in a few duvs. In another town the lillies and the crocus- cs were in blossom, and the pussy wil low buds had begun to swell and rttbins and blue-birds were making music in the erccn meadows. One farmer had seen striped snakes basking in the sun shiue. However much some of these may be enlarged there is a basis of truth iu them, in the mildness of the season if not elsewhere. The two pre vious winters have been very Bevcre aud what is coming to us now may be looked upon in the light of an offset. The weather for nearly a year has been the occasion of much remark. It has been unseasonable, the reverse of what we ordinarily expect, and yet if we em brace a term of years in our survey, we shall find that the weather like history repcuts itself. No two winters are ex actly alike and yet no series of winters is so uulike any other series as to oc casion alarm or lead to the supposition that we are passing through some great climatic revolution. Changes that come about in the temperature of the earth are too slow to be perceptible to a single generation of men. We have our doubts as to whether any continued effect can be produced upou the weath er by the operations of men upon the surface of the earth. Mau cannot turn away storms, or overpower the torna do, or temper the heat of the sun, or melt away the frost. lie is powerless in the presence of the great forces of nature that surround us. The season we are now passing through closely re sembles some former Reasons that fall within the memory of men who are yet living. Occasionally one remembers a winter not very far away with many points of resemblance. One reflection we can make, if a winter like this im pedes busiuess it limits the suffering of tlie poor. I.et us make the host of the present and not fear the future. INTERESTINGJO VETERANS. The annual school of officers of the 1st regiment is to be held at Montpe lier sometime this month. A eampfire was held at Hotel hall Northlield, Friday evening, under the auspices of Boynton Post. The drama recently given under the auspices of Phil. Sheridan Post tx.
