At 10 o'clock in the morning the annual bus iness meeting will be held, with a camp fire to follow. It is understood that Dr. Foster and Secretary Wilson will be re turned to the offices they have held so long. That is the prediction, if the sentiment found at the park to-day rings true to the feeling of the majority. Enough of music and to spare there will lie at the grounds to-night and to morrow. Plenty of vocal talent from Barre and Montpelier will be on hand to sing the. old martial strains that stirred men's hearts iu the dark days of 1SH1. A piano haa been stationed in the pavilion and the singers will not lack for accompaniment. Then, too, the Barre Citizens' band has been engaged for this evening. A detachment from the band joureney to the park this afternoon and placed at the camplire. In this connection, the passing of the famous Getcbell drum corps should le mentioned because of the prominent part which the drummers and fifcrs from Calais have plaved at the reunions .f other rears. The death of Andiew Getebell last spring removed the leading spirit in the corps organization and at the park to-day there was not a veteran on the grounds who did not mis the familiar figure of the little old drummer bov. -'f,'i Death has laid a heavy hand on the association in the past year.

Mr. Campbell was not at home when the fire broke out, having gone-to the granite quarries nearby to work.
