2,609
copies, the laryest paid circulation of any
daily paper in this section.

The Rutland News pays a deserved trib
ute to a captain in the Rutland fire depart
ment who met a'tragie death Tuesday eve-
nine, as follows: "There Is no greater
hero, either in -war or peace, than the fire
fighter who dies in the performance of his
duty. Ail honor, then, to John F. Corey
whose life was crushed out while hasten
ing to answer the alarm."
"You cannot always judge heroic char
acters by the cut of the man's clothes,"
said Rev. Mr. Barr, a Presbyterian clergy
man of Quiney, Mass,, and he spoke
world of truth in that sentence. The con
nection of the truism was with a sermon
delivered by him last Sunday, the subject
being "Heroes of Toil."
The fact that a banking house which
bought last year's issue of Barre city wa
ter bonds at a good premium and is now
trying to dispose of them at par, is noth
ing against the bonds or the city's credit
Money rates are higher this year than last
and bonds that were saleable at a good
premium last year cannot find a market
this. Like everything eke, money costs
more this year than last, and the broker
could afford to make a discount to sell the
Barre bonds and then place it where it
could bring a much higher rate.

ABOUT THE STATE.
I ten) of
The Times is pleased to note the follow
lug Hyde Park item in the Morrisville
News and Citizen: ''The recent arrest of
a few men for drunkenness is all right ;but
there should be no discrimination what
ever. The law should be meted out alike
to all, and every person who gets under
the influence of mm and makes himself
obnoxious and disgraceful should b
brought to time,' It certainly shows the
right attitude to take in relation to offen
ces of intoxication.''. If any arrests are to
be made for Intoxication there most cer
tainly should be no discrimination on ac
count of money or social or business posi
tion. A man who abuses his privilege and
lowers himself enough to become intoxica
ted should have the same treatment that
is accorded all persons who are brought
into court on that charge There is apt to
be discrimination made in every town.
The sentiment expressed In the Morrisville
contemporary Is the correct one.
Interest defined From Our

The Second Congregational church at

Mr. and Mrs. Gilman Richardlon cele
brated the 60th anniversary of their mar
riage at the home of Calvin v. hicham
son of Worcester, May 19. Many friends
and relatives were present. A sum of
monev and manv valuable articles were
presented to the aed couple. The Rev.
J. W. lllsley made the presentation speech.
The listers' returns of Hyde Park show
the amount of first class property in that
town to be $161,075, second class, $250,
725, personal, 22(1,24, polls, $770. mak
ing a total of $713,084. Last year the lis
was S704.647, making the increase thi:
year U, 027. The number of polls this
year Is 3S5 as against 420 of last year.
The soldier exemption passed at the last
session, makes a large part of the decrease.
If any incident of the many that are
constantly happening at the state asylum
for the insane deserves investigation, this
most recent one, in which a patient re
ceived a fracture of thtee ribs, needs such
an investigation. To be sure the conse
quences of the incident were not. so seri
ous as in the ease of Mrs. Bennett who
died from the injuries received in being
scalded, but there was much less of the
accidental in this breaking of the bones of
an insane patient, such as happened Tues
day. If those who raised a cry for an in
vestigation some weeks ago were to raise
the same demand now there would be ful
ly as much justification, iu the opinion of
the Times. In the former case it was es
tablished beyond peradventure that the
causes leading up to the death of Mrs.
Benuett were purely, accidental. In this
latest case It is hot so certain. Here Is a
patient who tried to escape from the insti
tution, a man of rather small size and
weighing only 140 pounds. It was further
stilted that the man, whose name is Flan
ders, was plae'ed in the excitable ward.
Two attendants were with him at the time
he tried to escape, and it is supposed that
the attendants were of at least as mneh
weight and strength as the patient, yet in
order to prevent his escape the attendants
threw him to the floor and in the fall one
of the attendants landed on the prostrate
man hard enough to fracture three ribs.
The question arises whether undue vio
lence was not used, contrary to the rules
of the institution. There is, it would
seem, a chance for on Investigation,
Deputy Health Otlicer C. R. Aldrich of
Brattleboro went to Halifax yesterday to
quarantine a ease of smallpox in the fami
ly of Winiiekl Houghton, Mr. Houghton's
twelve year old daughter being the pa
tient. The girl thought she had ivy pol-
soiling and went to a Brattleboro drug
store for a remedy. The druggist saw that
the eruption was more serious than ivy
poisoning and called Deputy Aldrich and
Dr. H. D. Holton of the state board of
health, both of whom diagnosed the case
as smallpox. There were not many exposures.
As an Illustration os tha duration of the
present drouth, C. B. Hill of Richford tells
the following: Early iu the spring a pair
of robins started a nest in the piazza eaves
trough near the conductor. Mr. Hill re
marked that the robins would get drowned
but the nest was fmished.theeggs laid and
batched and the young ones reared unti
they are nearly ready to tly, and there bas
not been enough rain at any time to fill
the eaves trough behind Hie nest. Did the
robins know by a keener instinct than our
own that this was a safe season to build a
nest iu such a situation'.'

When he takes a newer page to chronicle

He must write his history with blood upon
his paws.
Ha must dip his ink afresh from littla

He must make it redder yet with woman's

All the blood of Innocence he dips with

All the field that makes his page is black

All the world without his land looks on

This the page he writes In blood, and
