Said faun is aituated '.' miles south of Barnard Center, and was formerly known as the Capt. Alvin Wood farm. Said farm contains i.'7(l acres, more or less, is well adapted to all kinds of crops and is not one of the run down, neglected or deserted farniathat you read about, but is at the present tune in a good state of cultivation and is called one of the best in town. Cut this season &t tons of best quality hay, by actual measurement. The house was built nine years ago, is well painted but not all finished. No. 1 barn, HUxtf-'ft, with basement and stable. No. 2 barn, x:W, with basement. Both barns are in good repair and tilled to their utmost the present season. Farm has an abundance of marketable wood with a large quantity of sawing timber. Pastures as good as the best. Sugar orchard of 700 trees, new sugar house with evaisirator, tKKI tin tubs, nearly new, and everything in first class shape for business. Sugar crop yields alaiut -.!UU0 pounds on an average nearly sufficient to pay rent. Proceeds of said farm from Jan. 1, on to Nov. 1, ' were l72.l, as I have figures to show, to say nothing of the raw material necessary for a family averaging five persons. I the same indicating that the tann is tuliv equal to what is claimed for it. To a good, honest. I industrious man I otfer a bonanra. No other 1 need apply. Possession given March next or before if desired. I offer for sale my 3 year old gelding Kent colt. Said colt is large rangy and good color, ! with the beat of linilis and feet, has got plenty i of speed and good judges say that with more I age and goKi handling he will prove himself a first-class trotter. Please bear in mind that the Kents carried off a large share of the pn Ues offered at the late Windsor County Fair, fully demonstrating that the get of the horse Kent are soon to be recogni.ed as among the best in the country. Also offer two weanling I fillies, one by Kent and the other by thealiove ' named colt. For further particulars call oh or address the subsciilwr at lianiard. 1 ins no- H RitwHr one month only. HEKIitHT A. OOD, liarnard Vt, Trade, Holiday trade and we propose to make EDITORIAL XOTES. The editor of the Ilardwick Gazette ha calmly but definitely settled the question of abandoned farms aud Swed ish iinmiffTHtmn. Commissioner al- cntii'e should be notified at once so that he can settle his accounts and retire. It is not probable that any Swedes can be induced to come here after reading his "settler" on the subject. Some one has written an article late ly upon the best method of judging of the worth of a picture, upon w hich a contemporary sarcasticallyobservcs that the true way is to look down in one corner and read the name of the paint er. The point is that the value of a picture must be determined by the rep. utationof the painter. Pictures are not the only things measured in this way. Many an excellent sermon fulls flat upon an audience because there is not a great name behind it. Many an excellent book is written and published and only a few buy it because the au thor is an unknown quantity. Great names are sought after to give a 'boom' to a multitude of things to which they add no intrinsic value. Just at present the editors of most of the leading New York dailies are in Kurope but the pa pers move right along just the same while obscure men do the work. A man makes a fortunate move on some occasion and gains a point in the pub-1 lie eye. After this the public take the wares he offers without close criticism. The moral of all this is, get all the no toriety you can and your success is as sured, for awhile at least. The Australian system of voting was tried in Mass. for the first time, and so far we have seen only words of praise in regard to it. The voters were sur prised at the simplicity of the scheme. The voting was done quicker than was expected, w ith greater ease, a clearer understanding on the part of each one of what he was doing, aud freedom from annoyance aud surveillance. Each man stepped into the appointed place, marked his ballot, deposited it and then passed on. In only a few instances were men so illiterate as to need assist ance from those in charge of the polls. The election w as quiet. Men could not crowd up close around the polling places and interfere with the free ac tion of voters. There was no occasion for ballot distributors. "Heelers" and il.li.p.lprs" were out of place. The scheme was quite an innovation upon long established methods, aud it is not probable that it will be given up at ouce. It seems to us that the intro duction of this method of voting takes away one of the most frequently urged objections to female suffrage. Women can go and vote and meet with no more annoyance than upon the streets or in the shops. While we admit this re form is more urgently needed in Mass. than in this State it seems to us that it would be a good thing to introduce it into Vermont. What is good for one State may be good for all. Let us have the Australian ballot. The editor of the Burlington Clipper is anxious to hear from the person whom he designates as the "ministeri al editor" of this paper some more in reference to lotteries. Now the person whom he probably has in mind has nev er uttered anything on the subject in the columns of this paper. However, if he should say anything he might as tonish the Clipper editor by the liberal ity of his views. Life is a good deal of a lottery anyhow. When the Clipper man started into life not only his par ents but himself took immense risks. When he buys his ticket for the uext world the risks will be infinitely great er. We advise him to put off the jour ney as long as he can. As to the grand scheme of marriage so extensively ad vertised, it does not appear to the pub lic that the Clipper editor will ever take a ticket in it. But the time covered by the ticket is shortening up so close with him that it makes but very little difference whether he wins or loses. The effort to get money that you do not earn as is the case with every one who buys a ticket in the Louisiana lottery, performs an act that some people think is closely akin to stealing. It the edit or of the Clipper has been buying tick ets in that enterprise and lost then some one has got his money without paying for it, if he won then he got the money of some one else without paying for it. Is he guilty of any crime ? No, for there is no law in this state that forbids a man being born i fool. Is he guilty of any sin? That depends. If helms a clear, keen, sensitive conscience ite the editor of the Ilardwick Gazette, the answer will come at once. If long practice in the purchase of lottery tick ets has deadened his moral sensibilities then his sin is not so great as it other wise would have been. Should he con tinue on in thislineof conduct he might bring himself into the moral cond'lion of his remote ancestors and thus escape accountability. But then, who would want to buy lottery tickets and take all these risks ? If the editor of the Clip per is losing money in lottery tickets we advise him to let up at once. If he is getting rich he should compromise , . i , , i i th his conscience by subscr.bmg lib- w erally for the support of preaching and the maintenance of orphan asylums THE ELECTIONS- This is w hat is termed an off year in politics. There Bre comparatively few elections aud these are not of a na tional character. Only local issues are involved. It is one of those years when the republicans relax their vigilance and the democrats make some gains aud really think the party is gaining in strength. This year we have about the usual result. Perhaps the demo crats have gained a little upon former off years, but the general features ot the result are not very different. Ihe earliest returns were of a strongly dem ocratic color. As they continue to re turn there is a better look for the re publicans. Massachusetts, the only New England State that held an elec tion, elected a full state ticket. The republicans won with decreased major ities. The democratic candidate for governor had the advantage of a great er popularity. New York went demo cratic on the state ticket, but the legis lature is republican. This legislature will elect a successor to Senator Evarts. The old rebel states of course went democratic. New Jersey chose a dem ocratic governor. 1 lie Mate is hardly far enough advanced in civilization to be held closely in the republican ranks. Most of the Western states that held elections went republican. The excep tions were Ohio and Iowa. In these two States the results were mixed. In both the democrats elected the govern or but failed in some portions of the State ticket. In Iowa the legislature is republican w hich keeps Senator Al lison in his seat. Boies is chosen gov ernor by a small plurality. Iu Ohio the republicans claim all the State offi cers except Governor and possibly the Lieut.-Governor. The result in these two States is a surprise to both parties. It has happened once or twice since the war that the republicans have lost their hold upon them, but they are strong republican States, nevertheless. Some of the free traders claim that the dem ocrats won on the free trade issue iu Ohio, but the new governor is a protec tionist. The fact is Gov. Foraker lost the support of Sherman aud his friends by some unwise political moves, and in consequence the democrats scored a poiut. Besides, there is a strong sa loon clement, backed by the breweries, arraved against the republican party. Iowa has been steadily losing its re publican vote. It is estimated that at least 30,000 republican voters have moved out of the State into the regions beyond, since the war. Their places have been taken by foreigners whose sympathies are with the democrats. In the large cities along the Mississippi there is a large foreign eiement bitterly opposed to the republican party w hich stands for prohibition and law and or der, The success of the democracy in these States is in reality the success of the baser social elements. The rum driuking elements have come to the top in those States. And when temper ance is made a distinctive issue rum will win nearly every time. The dem ocrats may make as strong disavowals as they please, the rum element of the country, as a rule, gravitates towards the democratic party. This form of the law of gravity was a leading cause of republican failure in Oh:o and Iowa. STATE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. THE NEXT STATE FAIR WILL BE HELD OS THE EAST SIDE OF THE JIOI NTAIX. The annual meeting of the Ver mont State Agricultural Society was held at the Van Ness House in Bur lington last Thursday evening.

Hooker read a letter from J. L Baivii of Wliile Kivi-r Junction slating that from 8700 to $10,000 could In raised for the state fair. A half-mile track would have to be built, one-half of which could be graded with a road machine. Parties from Montpelier have written asking the society to come there and examine the Bailev farm near Montpelier Junction, which citizens there will buy if they decide to locate there. The follow ing was adopt ed ; Resolved, That the union proposed by the conference committee between the Vermont State Agricultural Socie ty and the Champluin Agricultural As sociation having been consummated, the next annual fair be held on the east side of the mountain in Septem ber, 1890 provided that the citizens of any desirable location raise an equal a mount to that subscribed by the Ver mont State Agricultural Society, not to exceed 81300.
