Every few days we notice items from some town in which complaint is made of the scarcity of teachers and of the necessity of closing many of the schools. The requirements of the new law are too severe. The next legislature will find it necessary to make some changes in it in order to fit it to the needs of the people. So radical a change as it involves could not be made without a little friction. Col. Swope and Col. Goodloe killed each other down in Kentucky the oth er day. These men were Union sold iers during the rebellion, were members of the republican party, and both fell victims to a false sensxs ot honor thnt has become a part ol the moral outfit of the high-toned gentlemen of Kentucky and in fact of the South .generally. The tragedy is a lilting outcome ol a ki"d of civilization that encourages caste in so ciety, and nets at defiance laws that do away with distinctions that society seeks to perpetuate. The pa n-American who have been perambulating the country under the auspices of the department of state ter minated their journey at Washington on Wednesday last. It w as one of the best planned and most successful trips ever made by rail by a pleasuse party in this country. It was undertaken and carried out by the Pennsylvania railroad "omianv, nd the cars were run over thirty litlerent lines and cov ered a distance of nearly ten thousand miles. Jt was an illustration of the d gree of perfection to which our railroad system has attained. The opusitiou journals must criti cise the acts of the president as a mat ter of course, but that they find it diffi cult is apparent from the fact that they are compelled to resort to falsehood. The lawyers iu Montana think he was guilty of a little sharp pract-co in ad mitting Montana before the settlement of some contested election questions that were liefore the democratic terri torial courts and by the act transferring these questions to the republican state .... . i i , courts. I lie ISrooklyn j-.agie says ne hastened to admit Montana first, as if to get these questions out of the terri torial courts lafore their settlement, when the fact is, the Dakotas were de clared States first. A man s enemies cau easily read unthought of things in to his conduct. All this talk about high license re ducing liquor drinking in tho state is nonsense. A man w ho pays a high li cense will find it necessary to sell as much liquor as he can to make the bus iness pay. Say what one will, legalize the sale of liquor, open saloons on the streets of our cities, and fill them with attractions 9nd hundreds of young men will be drawn into drinking habits who would have escaped the vice under oth er cTcumstances. No letting down of the bars if we wish to keep the good name of the state. We do not believe the high license racket will work here with any sort of vigor. It is too thin. We recommend those papers that are advocating it to see if they cannot do something to help the morals of com munity. At the recent Catholic centennial at Raltimore the announcement was made that the ban of the church had been removed from all secret societies except the Masons. So far as this matter is concerned but little attention seems to have been paid in this country to the requirements of the Catholic church. It looks as though this action of the church was only a yielding 10 the inevi table. It is not au easy matter for the clergy to regulate the actions of the la ity under republican institutions. So far as Masonry is concerned it would be iust as well to remove the ban from it.' Some think this wili be done; oth-) ers are not sanguine about h. Iu the meantime "those who were trained in the Caiholift church are received into j Masonic lodges, and so far as appears j to the outside world their connection j with the church is not severed. Eccle siastical ties are not very strong in our day, in some directions not as strong as they ought to be. Any democrat who can find much satisfaction in the recent elections ought to be able to draw sunshine out of cu cumbers. And yet they do it. . The Argus throws out its roosters to the breeze, and parades majorities and gains with as much satisfaction as tho' a great crisis had passed and the coun try had barely escaped shipwreck. So far as the democratic party is concern ed no one need fear regarding its health. It will live until the niillenium comes, and the niillenium will not come so long as the Argus can stave it off. We are not pleased with the returns but our disBppoin.moiit does not begin to meas ure democratic joy. Small things give satisfaction to those accustomed to small lavors. W e do not look upon the returns as indicative of any mark ed change in the political sentiment of the country. Local issues produced a temporary falling tiff iu the republican vote as it has done on other occasions but on national questions we may look lor the old time majorities. A NEW PEST. At a recent agricultural meeting in the vicinity of Uoston there came up for discussion the appearance of a new pet. This pest is a worm about the size of a man's little finger so that it cannot escape observation. It comes from the larva? of a species of butterfly into which the worm developes. The proeesB is some like that by which the earth is watered. The insect is sup posed to have been introduced by a gen tleman from Europe who came to Mil ford live or six years ago ami started the culture of silk worms. In some mysterious way this insect formed a part of his outfit. He discovered the presence of the stranger soon after his arrival and undertook to limit his cir culation. He failed, however. Some o the butterflies escaped through rents in the netting. For two or three vetirs little or nothing was thought of the matter. Theu the increase led some of the farmers to look up its jiedigree It was found to belong to some of the old families of Europe and had fount its way to this country along with much else that conn from the old world to curse us. In Europe it had never been very damaging to crops because of a parasite that kpt the numbers down Unfortunately it came to this country without the parasite, and like most ev erything else it flourishes unehif kl on our soil. We may be saved a great oa lamity if some one will bring over the parasite and start it upon its true mis. sion. This est has spread out quite a distance from its point of departure, Each year shows that it occupies a wid tr area tli.iii the previous year, and if the people are sullioiently apathetic it will in a few vears spread itself over the entire country. This pest has some features that remind one of the potato bug. It increases and multiplies witli astonishing rapidity. It can easily out strip Chicago or any new Dakota town on the census rolls. But it has a more voracious appetite than the gentleman from Colorado. The latterconfines his attention mostly to potato tops, now and then under the stress of hunger working his way down into the tulers. The new immigrant does not find but little that is foreign to his appetite. He will strip the foliage from the trees, he is very fond of corn, and in fact will eat nearly everything but potato bugs. The marks of his presence are very clear. He works like a man with a mission, and should he keep on unre stricted in his field of operations he w ill developc a multitude of abandoned farm lands in New England and realize the most extravagant dreams of the French Canadian in his occupancy of this re- gion of t,lt ""fy IIow are we go- ing to help ourselves ? This is the ques tion that is looming up before the peo- I"e minora and vieinity.oecause tl.ey s,,an'1 r'fc'llt ,he f ont f,f th 1'a!,,'' ''ut " ""i"' f'T the fight that is now theirs may be ours. It is real ly a fight for bread and butter for our selves and our children, not against the forces of nature but against an invad ing host that grows by what it feeds upon, and in the struggle for existence with humanity can discount the latter, taken unarmed, at every turn. What arms shall we use in the encounter with this foe ? The weapons of our warfare are the same as against the potato bug. But this new pest goes everywhere and into everything, and it becomes an ex eeedingly difficult matter to apply the remedy. Some inventive genius must contrive a way to scatter paris green among the clouds and be able to bring on a shower whenever and wherever he will. F'orce pumps have already been brought into use, but what are these as against shade trees and orch ards and forests? They count for noth ing. It has been suggested that the people turn out in force and destroy the larva' in a hand-to-hand fight. But this is easier said than done. Enough will escape each season to furnish seed for the season to follow. A man might as well undertake to kill all the bed bugs in a tenement house as to clean a fruit or shade tree of all insect eggs. Well, what is to be done? AVe must a wnit developments. Forewarned ought to be forearmed. It may be tho issue iu this case, provided only we can dis cover the arms we need. The discuss ion of remedies is now going on and it is earnestly to be hoped that some dis coveries will be made w hile the enemy is confined to a comparatively narrow area. Let us rally to the support of .vliltord. It we can lo no more we can lend them our sympathy and possibly aid in devising some plan for the exter mination of this pe.t. There is one more insect we should like to see. We do not know that it has yet been evolv ed. That is an insect that will eat up small dogs, stray cows, hoodlums, and other small vermin. It is one of those curious contrivances of nature that ev ery new form of life comes to assault the means of life provided for man. It sometimes appears as though man was an interloper, entitled to nothing except what may he left when the rest have got through. But these insects are no worse than the majority of men who spend their lives planning to live upon what the minority has produced. WANTED, FARMS. Believing our own New England peo ple are the most desirable class to set tle on the so-called "abandoned farms" and that if it was fully understood how low really desirable farm property can be obtained in this Slate there would be a big demand for it from this class, we advertised iu a few of the Boston dailies. As a result we have had ma ny letters from which we select the fol lowing addresses of parties who want to buy farms and have some cash with which to pay for them. Any one hav ing farms to sell cheap will do well to correspond with them. When writing to them state distance from R. R. sta tion, churches, stores, post-office, and schools, and condition of roads, num ber of acres iu fann, amount of wood, sugar and fruit trees, size, number and condition of buildings, water, produce ot farm, etc. E R York, Brockton, Mtiss.,18 Peckham st.

Vermont News. John Mills dropped dead in North Hydo Park last Thursday night. A half-mile race course is being laid out in Dauby for the benefit of the horsemen in that town. Edward Thiebault of St. Albans, who was accidentally shot several weeks ago still carries the bullet in his head but is improving. Peter McClennan, a brakeman, was bound over at St. Johnsbury on the 7th in $2.10 bonds for attempted crimi nal assault on a 14-year-old girl. The farm buildings of T. II. Hos kins, agricultural editor of the Ver mont Watchman, were recently burned. The contents were partially saved. Holland Feefee of North Hero lost 810 out of his vest pocket the other lay. ,lle went to bed, had a dream as to where he lost it and the next morn ing went to pitching over the bedding iu his horse barn and found it. Windsor business men are agitating the question of forming a stock compa ny for the purpose of quarrying the granite found at the base of Ascutney Mountain in three colors, pink, gray and green. The mountain is compos ed of solid granite of superior quality tor general building purposes.. S. M. St. John ot Milton over 80 years of age, employed a traveling den tist who happened along to extract a tooth, which was painful. He has since suffered intense pain, and is to day totally blind, which is supposed, to be caused by the bungling work of this transient. A German named Miner stole a horse, carriage and harness from the barn of V. A. Weed of Shelburn, the other night, and after a lively chas ing was captured in Benson by Con stable Roberts of Shelburn. The thief was taken into city court at Burling ton, where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in the state pris on at Windsor. It is stated that while Mrs. X. Mc Quivey and daughter, Mrs. Dcane, were crossing Rochester mountain they met four bears in the road, and as it was a lonely place and as the bears seemed to bein no hurry the ladies were considerably frightened. But the bears soon left the road for a piece of woods near by. Dr. Powers while crossing the mountain from Hancock also saw bears near the road.
