It has been almost a Jear since they tried to elect a governor in West Vir ginia and it h' " been decided yet who was elected or whether any oue was chosen. But civil affairs have moved along apparently as well as tho' the question of governer had been clear ly settled. Of what use is a Governor anyhow, except as a figure-head on the ship of State ? A. N. Cole, one of the founders of the republican party and the inventor of what is known as the "New Agri culture," has just died at his home in Wellsville, N. Y. He was a great genius in certain directions, and proba bly ditl more than any other man to de monstrate the high productive powers of the soil. We hope there is some one to continue the work which lie has commenced. Topographical engineers are about to commence surveys for a new map ot' Vermont. We are informed that it is to be. very accurate. We should like to see some changes made in town and county lines before auew map is drawn up and put on the market. We hope it can be sold cheap enough to admit it easily into the homes of the people ami that in order to secure it it will not be neoessary to support a large corps oi map agents. Steam presses have been taken out of the bureau of printing anil engraving at Washington and hand presses substi tuted. Secretary Windom is said t have done this at the instance of the Kuights of Labor. It cost the govern mciit 81")0,0OO to make the change. This Order does not seem to be dead yet, but a few more moves of this iind ought to kick the last breath out of it. Men never win suoeess by trying to set the world back into some lost century The number jf murders, accidents and drownings and fires that are each day reported are astounding to sensitive nerves. We need to reflect, however, that this is a large country, that these events happen at wide distances apart and that as much as possible is made of small affairs for the sake of produc ing a sensation. This is a busy world and much room is given for the play of human passions, and these sometimes break over all reasonable bounds. The degree of D. I), which our col leges confer give a man a little tempo rary notoriety, but it is scattered so freely that more notoriety can lie se cured by declining than by accepting it. Hence, nearly every year, in imitation of the late Henry Ward Beeeher, some one or two men will decline the proffer fid honor. There is a vast difference between a popular preacher aud a teach er of theology, but not many know it. Only now and then is a clergyman hon est enough with himself to recognize the fact. An interesting feature of the muster at West Randolph will be the presence of the Fuller battery ol Hrattleboro with four new steel breech-loading rifled guns with a 32 2-10 inch bore, capable of carrying projectiles six miles. They are said .o be the finest specimens of artillery ever produced, surpassing the famous Krupp guns of Germany or the Armstrong of England. They are the first that have been given out by the Government. We are glad these guns are coming here, as we have a small army of woodchucks near the camping r -Hinds and have failed to rout it. It mar be this battery can drive the ene my out of its rifle pits and bring about a surrender. This is the season of the year when city boarders eome into the country. The country is new to many of these, and many of these are new to country people. We wish to assure our friends of our cordial sympathy in the trying circumstances in which they may some times find themselves. We assure them that our dogs will not kick them nor our horses hook them unless they are abruptly familiar. We trust that the natives will behave in a friendly man ner towards these strangers who have wandered from their accustomed paths. Of course they are not used to our ways and may do things that seem queer to us, but we hope no one will sit on the fence and guy them as they pass along the road, or throw small stones or roots of grass at them, or smile at oddities of dress or other idiosyncracies they may discover. Such treatment is liable to generate homesickness. It is not nec essary to pretend that we know gome of their city uncles in order to cheat them out of a few hundred dollars. Let us be honest with them and give them wholesome impressions of a wholesome manner of living. VERMONT DISGRACED. Within the past month thi. state has suffered a violation ot her laws more shameful and fur more demoralizing in far reaching effect thau the Sullivan- k drain affuir in .Mississippi and as yet the proper officials have taken no steps to vindicate the honor of Ver mont as the Governor of the barbar ous state of Mississippi has done. Two great lottery schemes have been drawn openly in the past month, one at St. Albans and one at Montpelier We will not by giving names further dismnce the orjanizations that have o)Knly chosen to violate the laws of the state, to got a few paltry dollars. Over 10,000 tickets sold at St. Al- tKlllS. Nearly as many more at Montpe lier. 1 lie drawings held in tbe preneuce of officials sworn to suppress just such gambling schemes. If it is rmht fur these organizations to openly violate the law of the state and run lotteries why not let every one do the same ? Massachusetts Las prosecuted Post that brought shame on the noble order of the G. A. R. and n that commonwealth by running a lottery like these two mentioned. How Ions will Vermont see herself disgraced? That these lotteries were run for charitable obiects does not alter the shametul character of the matter. The state forlrids the sale or adver tising of the Louisiana lottery yet per mits the open sale of tickets for the advertishiff and drawinz of lotteries here. Let us boast no more ot our superi ority in morals over Mississippi ; Louisiana. Verily Vermont is very much like the Pharisee of Christ's time and Mis sissippi the poor Publican. SOMETHINGS TO CONSIDER. Much is said uow-a-days in the news papers and at gatherings of the farmers about Vermont and how to increase her material prosperity. The truth of the matter is, to begin with, this State is in as prosperous a condition as the oth er States of the Union. We are pass ing out of the war period when farm product commanded high prices, on account of unusual demands and the withdrawal of productive forces, and are coming into the ante-bellum state. The descent is not so easy to bear as the ascent. It was pleasant to make money fast and enjoy the extras of life and irksome to come back to he old methods of saving by pennies as the rank and file seem destined to do. The disadvantage under which our farmers now labor is that the price of farm la bor has not settled down in the same ratio as the price of farm products.and yet with the aid of machinery now in use it costs but little if any more for help on the farm than formerly. The fact seems to be that a man can and does on a farm produce by his labor muvh more than formerly. The natural result is to bring more products into the market and lower the price. There has been a steady decline in the price of butter, about proportionate to the in crease in the number of cows, until, as compared with the wages paid to a farm laborer it is made at a loss. The rem edy in part is to turn industry into oth er channels. We talk about inviting immigration. But what shall immi grants do? We have slate and gra-ute and marble and a few products that we can dispose of to advantage. But the bringing of labor will render it necessa ry to bring capital to utilize labor. In almost every department of manufac tures for which Vermont offers any spe cial facilities, there is a full market and profits are fine. If we bring in agri cultural laborers and further develope our farms we only increase products out of proportion to consumption, and this will tend to lower prices still far ther. As matters now are, one pro ducer can supply several consumers,but these consumers must have something with which to pay producers or these latter might as well lie idle. In order to take what the producers furnish the consumers must have employment and a market for what they produce. In other words there must be au inter change of products among all clusses of producers and in such a way as to keep up a just balance between them. The matter of supply and demand is an exceedingly difficult oue to adjust. It belongs to political economy and there are about as many theories of political economy as there are writers on the general subject. These matters cannot be considered with reference to one State independent of other States, or one country independent of other coun tries. The tendency is, w ith so much machinery, to produce in all directions more than can be readily consumed. When we look at the matteron the side of labor and see how many are strug gling for positions, how low wages are in many departments of labor, and how ninny women are crowding into the oc cupations of men, and that the struggle for existence is becoming closer, we say there are too many people in the State or the country or in the world at large, and that a war is needed to thin them or open a market for the products of labor. When we look at our re sources, and tlie possibilities of produc tion and the facilities for producing and the crowding upon the markets in eve ry direction, we say there are not peo ple enough. The fact is, when one in dividual prospers beyond measure, it is reasonable to presume that some other individual or individuals will fail to ob tain what properly belongs to them. Upon the supposition that there is just about enough in the country to meet the needs of each individual, if there falls to auy oue more than he needs some other oue or more must receive less. The same is true if upon a care ful reckoning and adjustment the am ount rises above the necessities of each We question not the propriety or legal ity of the principle of unequal distribu tion. The fact is what concerns us. But applying the principle to States, is not Vermont as well as each of the oth er States seeking to increase the wealth of individuals in building up its mate rial prosperity without reference to how it may affect other States ? We do not say this is not all right as States as well as individuals must look out for themselves. Those who are seeking to advance our interests have no evil or unfair designs against others. The West and the South are inviting capital and labor for the purpose of increasing their wealth. Each section of the country seeks to build itself up and asks not how it shall fare with other sections. Vermont has suffered a constant drain in labor and capital, and this to such au extent as to affect its relative pros perity. That it may regain a portion of what has slipped from it and check the drain upon it we need to make the best exhibit possible of our advantages and offer such inducements as will at tract and hold. This we can do with out infringing in a legal or moral sense upon the rights of any one. Free Sample Copies This Week We 6end out a large number of sam ple copies of this issue of the Hkkai.d. We auk all who receive one to look it over carefully, and if they do we are sure they will agree with us that it is the BEST LOCAL PAPER in Orange or Windsor Counties. We propose to publish all the news from these counties and to make the paper, although the lowest in price, the best one for you to take. Be sure and read the great Ameri can story by Emma II. Southworth, than whom there are few more inter esting story writers, entitled "FETTERED BY FATE." It will be run in liberal installments on the inside pages and will be the best story we ever published. Another noted American writer, who has already made her name fa mous the world over as the author of "The Quick and the Dead," Amelia Rives, has written a delightful short story entitled "MY LADY TONGUE." This we begin in this issue. Be sure aud read it. J ow why do we do this ? Adver tising is dull and we have room for these stories without crowding out any of the news or the other good things we publish every week, and besides we want every one who does not now take the IIkkai.u to try it during the next three mouths. We send you this issue aud oue next week free and only ask that you read aud enjoy them. We will send it to you ON TRIAL TILL OCT. 1 ST FOR ONLY 10 CTS. You need not send the money to us but baud it to your post-master. AIL papers will stop then unless renewed, so you need have no fear the paper will be crowded on you. I lease try it. Yours truly, L. r. Thayer. Editor. Col. Walker was shrewd when he accepted tlie presidency of the Associa tion of railway Presidents, in fixing his term of office with full salary at not less than three years, whether the As sociatiou itself continued to exist or not. Human nature is about the same among high as among low officials and there are present indications that the whole scheme will, ere long, crumble into the dust, it is unfortunate that some just and equitable plan of operations cannot be agreed upon and abided by in the management of railroad business. VERMONT HIGH SCHOOLS. The following figures, with a single exception, were obtained by correspon dence withthevarious schoof committees. The rate per cent of tax in each case is not the increased rate of the present yr. which our new school law rendered nec essary, but the ''usual'' rate. Benning ton and Jirattleboro each employ a untie teacher for first assistant, Bennington paying the same 81200; Brattleboro, $1000. Montpelier High school is united with Washington cotintytiminiuar sohool and Is largely supported by rents on school lauds, etc. (1) C2) f'3) C4) Bellows Falls Bennington Brandon Brattleboro Burlington.
