I And now they are mentioning Lieuteu h ant General Nelson A. Miles, retired, for governor of Massachusetts on a Demo cratic ticket. Let the jokers have their little fun. They have about run the gamut of possible oilices for the soldier, Hid it is very probable that the one men tioned has had nothing to do with the va rious breaks by his friends. Whether the latter know It or not they are holding their hero up to ridicule before the woildand are really doing him a lasting injury. Kuch shortsightedness on their part Is ridicu lous, and their zeal Is fairly running away with their prudence. General Miles him self would imt a stop to it no doubt if he were capable of so doing. The advice of Hooker T. Washington to his Xecro brethren at Nashville, Tenn., to "learn to be bigger than those who would Insult us," is sure to he misinterpreted by those hostile to the Negro and his advance ment. It is unnecessary to tell most peo pie that Mr. Washington did not mean that his people should cot to that point where they have an exalted opinion of them selves. Rather he meant that they should show themselves to be so broad minded as to overlook the insults that might be hurl ed at them. 1 urther along m the course of his talk the speaker uttered these - words which show the nobility of the man, "We must learn to hold up our heads and march bravelv forward, in spite of obsta cles and discouragements."

Ernest Gilman called in bis friends from Canaan, Leru ington and Colebrook, N. II., across the river to assist him In getting up the frame of what is now the largest barn in the north country. Early in the morning wagon loads of people began to arrive, for it was to be made a gala day, and the men brought the wives and children to enjoy Mrs. Gilmau s hospitality and to help pre pare food for the hungry, while the tall timber was being raised. Everything was in readiness and the men worked busily, until finally, when the dinner horn blew, the frame was more than half up and at 4 in the afternoon, 80 men who had helped build it had their pictures taken on what had been but a few hours before a mam moth pile of lumber. The dinner was the feature of the day, and about 150 people enjoyed the baked beans and brown bread, doughnuts and cheese, pies and cookies steaming mugs of cotfee or glasses of rich milk. Men and women who had not met for mouths enjoyed this social intercourse over the festive board ;farmers forgot their cares in the discussion of the marketing of potatoes or caring of stock, while the tired faces of their wives brightened as they, in turn, talked about butter making and bringing up babies. It was late when the last family had departed, leaving a cloud of dust from their horses heels; and it was an event that will not soon be for gotten, this old-fashioned country barn raising in a "truly rural" community.
