They know how to roll up big popu lations in tlie west. St. Paul has dis covered that in Minneapolis the doj: are entered on tlie directory lists. Here is a hint for the next census takers. If all tlie dos are enrolled we can r-well our population to nearly a hundred mil lions. The trouble would be that in the South where do?s are numerous it would increase their congressional del egation vastly out of proportion to the North. Put in the dogs, it will not es sentially lower the average intelligence of the voting population of many sec tions of the country. The Poultney Journal sighs for the good old days when we had stalwart governors, throwing out the inference that the present stock are mere pigmies in comparison. We often hear it said that "distance lends, etc." When we have gone a generation or two into the future the governors oi to-day will ap pear to men in larger outline than now. This practice of belittling the present is not always in good taste to say the least. We are inclined to think that Vermont is governed as well now as she has ever been. The fact is men allow their opinions to be shaped by their prejudices and thus take away their worth. W. H. H. Murray has prepared a course of lectures upon some of our modem social problems which he pro poses to deliver to expectant audiences. Some of the papers seize upon this lit tle circumstance and insinuate that he himself is a problem most difficult ol solution. No doubt he is to some men who can live only iu a conventional way. AV'e see nothing remarkable in Murray's career. Like many others who feel the irksonieness of restraint he was inclined to fly off ou a tangent, and the forces that should have restrain ed him drove him out still fartluir from the common orbit of life. We presume however,that he has done as good work in the field he has chosen as he could have done in any other. When we con sider that there are deacons and dea cons we may be able to exercise great er charity towards him without count ing him perfect iu all things. We should like to hear his lectures. The question has been presented to Supt Palmer : Can teachers going from one county to another have their certifi cates eudorsed without examination? lie replies substantially that, while the law has been silent on the point .the custom of endorsing grew up among town superintendents, and in a certain specified instance the .Supreme Court recognized the validity of the practice. In this condition of the law the new statute was enacted. This new statute in section 58 allows the endorsement of first grade certificates. By a principle of law this would exclude the other two grades. But uuder section "l it is clear that the holder of a second or third grade certificate would lie entitled to a private examination, but such certifi cate would be good only until the next public examination. The fact is the Supt. does not positively answer the question, but recommends that exam ination papers be sent by the supervisor conducting the examination to the su pervisor asked to endorse his certificate that the latter may look thein over for himself. He hopes the question may be carefully considered at the next an nual teachers' meeting soon to be held at St. Albans. We can only infer that the county supervisor's power to eu- dorse is limited to first-grade certificates. VERMONT'S PROSPERITY. More than the usual amount of at tentiou is being called just at the pres ent time to the development of the re sources of Vermont. It is assumed that the State might prosper more than it is now prospering if the right meth ods were employed to encourage man ufactures, agriculture, mining, etc. It is assumed that our kills are full of wealth, that riches abound iu our val lies, and that what is needed is some of the enterprise that goes to build up oth er communities applied to our own. We look upon this movement as a favora ble sign. It indicates that as a State we have not settled into the apathy of old age, thinking only of the feeble a chievenients of the past, with but little to hope for in the future There is an implication iu much of this talk that we have not done as well iu the past as we might have done. This is true. There is the same feature in all past records. Yet Vermont hits occupied no mean place. Her position has made her more of an agricultural than a man ufacturing State. Instead of growing rich as sonic of the other States have done, there has been a continual drain upon her both of men and money. We know that Vermont has crown in wealtl at times and then a decline in prices has shrunk out some of the gain of pre vious years, i akmg a term ot years and comparing with former periods we think the State can show material ad vance. But it has never been the boast of Vermont that she was keeping or could keep eveu pace with some of the Middle and Western States, but the nieu and the women and the wealth of the Stnte have gone to aid in building up those States. There is not a State west of Vermont to day that is not more of a State than it would have been had there been no Vermont from w hich to draw men and money. We have given of the best of our possessions to help others, sometimes it is feared to our owu detriment. If Vermont cannot boast of great things, her thousand acre farms, her immense mills and her mill ionaires, she has her specialties and by means of these she has impressed herself upon the whole country. The poet Saxe, in his best days, wrote of four things for which Vermont was then famous, men, women, maple su gar and horses. Some things have been added to this list since his day while these have lost none of their val ue. Our sugar is as sweet as when Saxe sung of it, and it has a far wider market, our horses are as fleet, and the prices they command would have aston ished the poet, and we are slow to be lieve that the quality of our meu and women averages less than in former ' days. But we have added to these the choicest products of the dairy, some ot the finest marble iu the world, granite that cannot be surpassed for all the va rious uses to which it is applied, and lumber for the choicest kinds of wood manufacturing. It is uot to be suppos ed that as a State we can attain to full growth at once. It may not be desira ble to do this. Our ambition ought to be fairly well satisfied if we are not falling behind other States. Not one of the States, even the most advanced, has reached the limits of its growth. We admit that for farmers the present time is not as favorable as a few years ago, but the agricultural interests are the fundamental interests of any com monwealth. We all live upon what comes from the soil. Many of our younger meu are farming outside of the State, and by so doing they bring them selves into competition with those left within the State. Yet they assist in advancing the general interests of the country in which this State takes a share. Io the recent efforts made to quicken the interest of Vermonters iu Vermont special account has been made of her material prosperity. This is an essential feature. We need money or its equivalent to help us along. But wealth alone will not build up a State or make it prosperous and happy. The richest of men are sometimes in poor health. Men whh large fortunes are sometimes exceedingly corrupt. Per haps the moral condition of Vermont will average fairly well with that of other States. Without claiming to be any better than the average we are not ready to admit that we are any worse. Vermont has good laws. Some are open to improvement, but what is need ed is such an interest in our laws by the people as shall secure their enforce ment. We are injured more by lax ex ecution of law than by the quality of our law. But in this we will not ad mit our inferiority to other States. We demand as a condition of prosperity that we make an advance on our present statin. We are not specially lax in morals, and yet we are open to improve ment. In intelligence we compare fa vorably with the people of other States, and yet we have an educational system that is open to almost endless improve ments. It may be that we are not far behind the mass of our fellow-meu iu the observance ol the higher duties ol religion.yet there are multitudes among us exceedingly inditlereut in regard to religious duties. When wo talk about booming Vermont we want to boom it in all these directions. Prosperity conies from a variety of sources. A good name with a solid "backing" is wortl; as much as money. A FEW SUGGESTIVE FIGURES. There are in this state 3.'),522 farms valued (listers valuation) at ovc 12l,00l,000. Thevulueof the ma chinery alone, used on these farms is over $5,000,000. The live stock worth over 20,000,000 and these farms annually raise over 25.000,000 of produce, divided nlxmt as follows: Barley, Zi.r),000 bushels: corn. Z0O0, 000; out, 4.000,000; wheut, BoO.tXM potatoes, 4.500.000; apples 650,000, ana over 1,000,000 tons of liny are an nually cut. Vermont has over 3,000 nianufaeturinsr establishments, fur nishing employment to over 20,000 bunds and the wiiires amount annual ly to over 3n.o,oo(p. The value of the finished linxlucts is over $40, 000,000. Is this a showinir that a little Stat the size of Vermont heed be ashamed of ? Green Mountain State. IS VERMONT POOR? What are the facts! With a popu lation of about 350,000 she has almost 60,000 detwsitors and over $16,000,000 to their credit in her savings banks. Oue in six of every man, woman. and child has money iu the bank. besides this she Las over $6,(K)0,000 on deposit in her National Bunks and a moderate est imate places her invest ments in the West and South at over $75,000,0 HI more. Poor indeed! mind you this money was made in Vermont. ltememlter this is over and altove the vast sum loaned in Yenuout,everv dol lar of which is Vermont money. Stop then and think, that her people are th rw;t fed. lst clothed, best housed and have more advantages than those of any state in the L nion ami what is the conclusion? Vermont is a good state to make money in as well as to be Itorn and live in. NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY A FARM. Mr. E. L. Bass, secretary of the Ver mont Dairymen's Association, advises young meu to Imy Vermont farms. and stats that in "the town of isam ard a good farm of 130 acres wras late ly sold for $1100, and farming tools, including 500 tin sap buckets, thrown in. This farm will keep 10 cows. The buildings are in good rt'iair, horse bam and sugar house lieingbuilt with in two rears and a house that cost $2300 20 years ago. There is an ex cellent orchard on the place, and 30 barrels of choice apples were sold last year at $2 per Itarrel; also a large sugar orchard, from which Slot) worth of ninple sweets were sold last spring. Beside the sugar orchard there is lnm lier enough to pay for the place when delivered at the mill, only two miles distant; in fact, the farm was offered for what the lumber would sell for at the mill, after reserving 5( 0 sugar trees. The location is only three mis. from church and store and J mile from school. Still this is not an exception ally rare offer, for several eqiiaDy as desirable farms have been sold in BarnanL antL I doubt not. in other towns at as low a figure. This ought to make mighty interesting reading for a cood manv lieople. Perhaps the time may come when capitalist in stead of investing in Western lands will give yonnjr atern men a chance to make a home and develop and bmld Tip New England. Herald. COMING FAIRS.

The most noticeable feature was the entire exclusion of all games of chance and intoxicating liquors from the ground. A good move due to ITesiiient ueo. vt . Hooker. The exhibit of cattle was mea ger, that of horses the best we ever saw. I here was a good showing of sheep. Floral Hall was not as good as many County fairs, being mainly used by Bur lington merchants tor advertising purpos es, llie trotting the first and third days was very good and the best feature of the fair. There was a luige how of vegetables, machinery, etc. One of the most noticeable departments in Floral Hall was the music exhibit. II. W. Hall of Burlington and J. F. Waterman of Montpelier being the principal exhibit ors, lhe latter exhibited the ( onover upright pianos in beautiful English oak, dark, rich mahogany and figured walnut cases the Krakauer pianos in figured walnut and ebonized, aiso two flue Wor cester organs, 'lhe exhibit although not as large as some was finely arranged and very attractive the pianos shown being the tincst in style, design, finish and tone of any we ever saw. Prof. Al- vah (i. Salmon of .Boston and Ueo. II. Wilder of Montielier brought out the wouderful power and exquisite tones of these matchless pianos to the delight of large crowds. Hereafter the C'onover and Krakauer pianos must rank high in the estimation of those w ho saw them. A CURIOSITY.
