EDITORIAL NOTES.
Two men have been caught fishing
on Lake Clmiiiplain contrary to law and
sent to the House of Correction to work
for a long term. It is an unfortu.uu.te
case for one of the men who leaves nine
children in poor circumstances. 5tit

with so much at stake ought to be cure

thing when it warns all hands off the
seals in IJehring sea. It has sent a war
vessel up there with orders to arrest all
intruders. This means business.
any of the effete kingdoms of the old
world have any doubt about it let them
organize a fishing party and come over
this summer and scurry round after
seals. Tlie navy secretary doesn't talk

There has been much excitement grow-
in" out his disappearance, and now it
is clear that he was murdered. The
singular part of the affair is, that he
was marked out for assassination and
his assassins chosen by a secret society
of which the Dr. was a member. Some
troubles arose and this man had made
enemies and his death was calmly and
coolly agreed upon. His story reads
like one of the bloody tales of the Ital
ian secret orders of the Middle Ages.
The detectives are searching for tlie
murderers, and for the sake of the pres
ervation of the good order of society we
hope they will be discovered and strict
ly dealt with. The country is filling
up with secret societies, most of whitfh
no doubt are well enough, but the pop
ular indignation will be aroused against
them all when even one takes the lives
of members into its own hands regard
less of the law of the land.
We wish to call attention to an act
of the last session of (he legislature ap
propriating money to the State Univer
sity and Middlebury College. This
money is to be distributed as scholar
ships to worthy applicants through tlie
members of the present State Senate.
Each Senator holds the gift of one
scholarship for each institution, and ap.
plication must be made by those desir
ing them sometime in the month of
June in order to secure an appointment.
The Senators for this county are S. F
Frary of So. Strafford and Millard T
King of Tunbridge. Any of our young
men about to enter college aid desiring
to avail themselves of State aid can gov.
em themselves accordingly.
Laura Iiridgman recently died in So
Boston aged about 00 years. Her life
was remarkable. When about two
years old she lost all her senses except
that of touch, thus her contact with the
outside world was narrowed down to a
pretty fine point. Her mind was quite
clear. The object was to bring it into
contact with the outside world. She
went to the Perkins institution for the
blind and was put under a course of dis
cipline, the outcome of which was that
she learned to read, write, knit and
sew and could entertain visitors. She
was uncomplaining, cheerful, interested
in the affairs of the world. Her case
was unlike any other of which we ever
heard, and shows what patience and
perseverance can accomplish under the
most untoward circumstances.
There is a great deal of risk about
raising boys iu these days. They are
compelled to run tlie gauntlet of all the
diseases incident to childhood, and in
addition to these they must encounter
the perils of cigars, cigarettes, tobacco
chewing, ruin-drinking, small gambling
and bicycling and base ball playing.
Now and then one passes through all
these and grows into manhood, but the
majority sutler physical, mental and
moral deterioration, eveu if not totally
wrecked. And the dangers thicken. In
the cities they are much greater than
in the country but rum and tobacco
aud degeneracy and ruin find their way
into the sparsest settlements. In addi
tion to these agencies that work for ev
il is a nameless vice that is taking the
strength and vigor out of young man
hood, fitting victims for hospitals and
patients for insane asylums and thereby
adding to the burdens of community.
It must needs demand the pressure of
the strongest moral forces that can be
brought into action to keep society iu
the line of advance.
THE OTHER SIDE.
Some thirty years ago or thereabouts
the people of West Randolph had a
course of lectures during the winter sea
son. One exceedingly cold and stormy
evening Pres. Lord of Dartmouth Col
lege was announced to lecture on the
subject, "The Other Side." The Dr
was expected to arrive on the afternoon
train and a committee was in waiting
to conduct him to the hotel, but he did
not arrive. Word went out that the
lecture would fail. Some who had
not heard of his non-arrival by train
went to the church, and, lo ! at the ap
pointed hour the Dr. was there. He
had driven from Hanover with his own
team, coming into town on the east side
of the branch. The gentleman who in
troduced the speaker wittily announced
that while waiting for him on this side
he had come up on "the other side,
Dr. Lord took the other side view of
everything, and those who remember
him know how successfully he could
work the shadows into the picture. The
lecture was profoundly interesting from
a literary point of view,but it left shad
ows on the minds of all his hearers.
The "times" were all out of joint, some
great catastrophe was impending, the
nation was on the verge of dissolution,
religion and morals were in a sad state
f decline. One would suppose that
the Dr.'s chief anxiety was to get safe
ly out of the world and then the devil
might take what was left. This was
before the war. The Dr. was a dem
ocrat, pro-slavery, anti-temperance, at
loggerheads with every movement that
we think is reformatory, and his old
age fell on a period when much of the
leaven of reform was working in socie.
ty. Abolitionism, temperance, and
many principles that are now guiding
men in their conduct were then strug
gling for recognition. But the Dr. was
one of a class of men who are always
looking on the dark side of things. We
have those now who think the world is
moving down grade with an accelerat
ed velocity. Their look is backward
and their chief comfort is found in med
itating upon things as they were. They
look upon human society now and they
see political corruption, insincere mo
rality, religious hypocrisy, degenerate
manners, superficial education, a kind
of lawlessness of spirit that refuses to
submit to authority. Things are not
managed as well as when the country
was new. Bishop Potter touched this
strain in his Washington centennial ser
mon. We catch some notes in a mul
titude of occasional discourees and mag
azine articles. It may be well enough
to consider possible dangers in order to
avoid them, but a continual watch for
and fea- of them takes a great deal of
comfort out of living that we cannot
well afford to spare. There are plenty
of things in the world that war against
the peace of society, but like the Brigh
ton rector we ought to be able to ex
tract good from things evil. Call the
world as bad as we please, we shall
find that after all much of the coloring
is iu our own minds. In these times
and in this country we certainly have
a right to take a hopeful view of things.
It is true, the sun may be obscured by
a thunder cloud here and there, when
it shines brightly in the regions all a-
bout. There are local disasters and
disorders that throw a passing shadow j
over communities, but the generarout-
look is bright, the general tone is
healthy. There is no urgent demand
made upon us to spend much of our
time in standing off and gazing at the
other side. We have social and polit
ical evils to contend with, but one way
to do this is to work up to the fullest
extent all that makes for good, and by
this process crowd out the evil. We
ilo not expect to make a paradise of the
earth, but if we work matters shrewdly
we can keep the devil out of full posses
sion for several generations to come.
There has never been a time in our his
tory when our political condition was
more favorable. The friends of the ad
ministration are hopeful, its enemies
can only utter the faintest growls. Our
material prosperity has never been sur
passed at any former period. There
may not be a perfect adjustment of la
bor and capital, but there are only few
labor troubles. There never was a pe
riod when fewer men and women need
to go hungry. We have reached a
higher degree of civilization than any
nation ever attained before. We have
secured the enactment of better laws
regulating the evils of society than ev
er existed before, and these laws are a
well sustained by the sentiment of the
communities in which they prevail as
such laws ever have been. Life and
property are as secure as at any pre.
vious period. Work is constantly push
ed in the field of reform. Churches
are increasing in numbers and size.
Theology may be discussed less but the
vital principles of religious faith take a
stronger hold upon the hearts and con
sciences of the people. New customs
arise, old ones become obsolete, but
change is not necessarily decay even
though it may not always mark prog
ress. It is better for a people to con
tinue hopeful than to sink into despon
dency which is almost certain to bring
the troubles that are feared.
