"John Center is a brave old Roman at that. A lifelong Democrat like John, t,ood old philosopher that lie is, doesn't mind a little thing like a defeat." With such salving words does a contemporary console a defeated man, pour ointment on his wounds, bind up the torn liga ments, wash off the marks of conflict and lay liim gently on the nhelf. Ho, John so! Hut there's many a. kick left in the "old Roman" yet. White River Junction is euro to prove an important point in to-morrow s dis patches. It is the news capital of the Green Mountain state. Boston Tran script. That's rather peculiar, too, since the headquarters of the Republican state committee was in Rutland, the chairman of the committee was in Newport, the headquarters of the Democratic state committee was in St. Albans with its candidate, and White River Junction is only one of the smaller communities of the state. The advantage of the place lies in its location midway the length of the state and, therefore, able to get in communication with all parts of the state rather easily and collect the elec tion returns. White River Junction is advantageously located, as we have pre viously had reason to point out. A RUMBLE OF DISCONTENT. By virtue of a Vermont Republicanism which is almost as unshakable as the Vermont hills, John' A. Mead of Rutland will be the nest governor of Vermont. Yesterday's results give him a majority somewhat better than the low-water mark of Vermont off-year elections and JT"7S'X 'Vl K- "Eternal vigilance is the price of finan cial safety."

At the same time, it is apparent that the defection from the Republican ranks was not as large a was threatened, or rather that the accretions, of the Democratic aide were not a large as were anticipated by the Democratic leaders. Republican who sought to enter a protest against Mead did so by refraining from voting for the hiad of any ticket, rather than by vot ing for the Democratic candidate. It is evident from certain sections, notably Washington county, that this protest was considerable. For instance, Mont pelier, which ia a Repuhliran stronghold, shifted to the Democratic column in the governorship contest and at the aame time maintained a good Republican ma jority in all the other positions. North field, which gave LeigMon P. Slack, the Republican candidate for lieutenantgov ernor, 279 votes, gave only 103 to Mead. Among the smaller towns, Berlin, for example, gave 100 votes to Mack and only 70 to the head of tho ticket. Those cases illustrate the feeling of the people around central Vermont. That was shared to more or less extent throughout the state; but the dissatisfaction wa not general enough to make itself felt in the shape of a great protest. It was nothing more than a rumble of discon tent, but still is worth listening to by the Republican party and it candidates. Current Comment The Vermont Militia. It is encouraging to lenrn of the splen did part, the Vermont militia played in the army manoeuvres at Pine tamp un der the command of Col. J. Oray Estey, because it means that the First regi ment is steadily acquiring tirst-class ef ficiency in the practical knowledge of arms under the patient efforts of this excellent officer. Perhaps few people in the state realize at what sacrifice Colonel Kstey, with bis pressing business af fairs, . retains command of the regiment after a long service with it in peace and in war. But be is giving the best that is in him to make Vermont's militia force the equal of the best volunteer sol diers and to prevent, for this generation, at least, the humiliating experiences that . befell the regiment in the war with Spain, because- a mistaken state policy had not prepared it for actual service.

Charles W. Eliot's new book. 'The Du rable Satisfaction of Life," we have a volume of charm ing essays. The ti tle Indicates that it la the lasting pleas ures of life for which he eek, those pleasures that grow rather than pull by repetition and cause roan to lay, when comes the time of dimmed eyes and whitened locks, not "All is vanity and vetatlon of spirit" tut "It Is good to have lived." But be empha sises the necessity of cultivating tbs faculty of enjoyment as one goes along. "The Lest way to secure future happiness Is to be as happy us Is right fully possible tjday." And together with this it is necessary to realize how common to all average men and wom en are the grent, the most important, sources of human happiness. Neither great riches nor ruucb leisure, he points out, can add n great deal to the possibilities of the fullest satisfactions In living. Among these possibilities he gives smple measure to the satisfactions of sense. Even such humble delights as eating and drinking receive due recog nition. "Takiug food and drink." says the president emeritus of Harvard, "is a great enjoyment for healthy people, and those w ho do not enjoy eating sel dom have much capacity for enjoy, ment or nsefulness of any sort." But of far more Importance are the pleas ures to be gained through the eye and the ear. "The whole outward world is the kingdom of the observant eye. lie who enters into any part of that kingdom to possess it has a store of pure enjoyment in life which is liter ally inexhaustible and Immeasurable. Ills eyes alone will give him a life worth living." , Some years ago Colonel John Jacob Astor was known as the millionaire society man. Then he went into pol Itlcs, and the word politician appeared fter bis name. Later on he gave as many clever and useful inventions, and we called hi in the millionaire Inventor. But now that his book, "A Journey Into Other Worlds," is attracting . so much attention hi will probably be called the million aire author until he makes his mark in some other field. The volume is a Cight of fancy, la which the author tells of the triumphs of science and the COrrwtr. stoh. wonders to come. In writing of his work recently Colonel Astor wrote: "In my book I assumed the discovery of a force counteracting gravitation. We know that mnguets can repel as easily as they attract and that the earth is a great magnet I coined a word, 'apergy,' for this gravitational counterpart With apergy, if w e could produce It, we could do almost any thing, from lifting weights on earth to a trip to the moon or farther, if prop erly equipped. Think what emnncipt tion from gravitation, if we could neu tralize that ancieDt force, would mean to the aeroplane! It would need no wings, could carry ns much weight as the aviator wished, and the engine would be needed only for propulsion. "With ' apergy tremendous speed would not be difficult. As a falling body drops sixteen feet the first sec ond, thirty-two the next, siity-four the next, and so on, so the speed would increase in geometrical progression, with repulsion equaling gravitation, as we happen to And it. but if we could make the earth repel at all there is no reason why this should not be in creased so that soon we should acquire cometary Telocity." "'Now,' said the doctor, 1 am go ing to show you the effect of alcohol upon your circulation.' 1 think it was 'circulation,' he said; it may have been advertising.'

Like the very last line of one of his deep, whimsical stories were the Inst conscious words he said. It was dark on Sunday morning, and he knew that be was going. "Turn on the lights, doctor." he said and smiled. "I'm afraid, to go home in the dark." The Inst volume of stories from O. Henry's pen was gone over by him not a month before his death. These sto ries will be published soon under the title of "Whirligigs." In less than ten years this man became the roost popu lar and the bet short story writer in America. He left behind him ten vol umes. EAST CAEOT. S. E. Houghton is on the sii'k list. Mr. and Mr. S. F. Mile were in Peaeham Monday. ' Charles Oiiitnt of Crafti-burv i vi.it- ing at O. D. illnke'a.

There are no more Gsb in tbs Atlantic ocean, it Is useless to con front me with statistics.

Anyway, It's a perfectly punk ocean without any fish ia it." Mr. Ford's new book ia a companion volume to "Horses Nine." It la most entemlolng and should be read by owners of borses who thoughtlessly often feel inclined to part lightly with tbelr humble and useful friends after they have served their turn. There is a sympathetic note that runs through the poges and betrays In the author a kind fellow feeling for man's four footed friends. Many good stories are going the rounds about James Whltcomb Itiley, the "Hoosler poet" who was stricken with paralysis recently. One of bis queer traits has always been an un willingness to tell his own age. He always looked hurt when It was men tioned by anybody else. In response to a request for an autobiography a few years ago be wrote: I" 4 y "The unhappy snb- ject OI IUJB BHCIWU was born so long atri flint ho rwr- jf, .' , " , - r , .' , I shits in never re- I - ferring to the date.
