For good practical benefits the Akeley
memorial building in Stowe meets the re
quirements exactly, and the donor had the
right idea when he planned a building to
ba used for the every day affairs of the
village. As constructed the building can
be utilized for nearly all the purposes
which the civic life of the community de
mand), including oflii-.es for the town offic
ials, court room, voting place, etc. The
gift is exceptionally valuable for the rea
son that it is so designed for the use of the
town, not merely to be an ornament, al
though it does serve the latter purpose.
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."

At Smith Canaan recently. Ernest Gilman
called in bis friends from Canaan, Leru

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.
