Sherman N. Parker of Barre is the possessor of an interesting volume, en titled "Washington's Political Lega cies," which was printed In Boston in 1800. One of the Interesting chapters of the book ia ft medical review of George Washington's last Illness, which oc curred in December, 170!). The chapter, which is here reprinted, is of particular interest at this time when the birthday of the first president' is being cele brated. " Some tima In the night of Friday, tlio 10th instant, having been exposed to a rain on the preceding day, General Washington was attacked with an in flammatory affection of the upper part of the wind pip;, called in technical language rynache tracheali. The dis ease commenced with a violent ague, accompanied with some pain In the upper and fore part of the throat, a sense of stricture in the same part, a cough, and a difficult, rather than pain ful, deglutition, which were soon suc ceeded by fever and a quick and labo rious respiration. The necessity for blood letting sug gesting itself to thp general, he pro cured a bleeder in the neighbourhood, who took from his arm in the night Is; or II ounces of blood. He could not by any means be prevailed on-by the family to send for the attending physi cian till tha following morning, who arrived at Mount Vernon at about 11 o'clock on Saturday. " Discovering the case to be highly alarming and forseeing the fatal tend ency of the disease, two consulting physician were immediately sent for, who arrived, one at half after three, and the other at 4 o'clock in the after noon; in the meantime were employed two pretty copious bleedings, a blister was applied to the part affected, two moderate doses of calomel were given, and an injection was administered, which operated on the lower intestines, but all without any perceptible advan tage, the respiration becoming -t ill more difficult and distressing. " Upon the arrival of the first of the consulting physicians, it was agreed, as there were yet no signs of accumula tion in the" bronchial vessels of the lungs, to try the result of another bleeding, when about 32 ounces of blood were drawn, without the small est apparent alleviation of the disease. Vapours of vinegar and water were frequently inhaled, ten grains of calo mel were given, succeeded by repeated doses of emetic tartar, amounting in ill to five, or six grains, with no other effect than a copious discharge from the bowels. ' " The powers of life seemed now manifestly yielding to the force of the disorder; blisters were apphed to the extremities, together with a cataplasm f pran and vinegar to the throat. Speaking, which was painful from the beginning, now became almost imprac ticable; respiration grew more and more contracted and imperfect, till half after 11 Saturday night, retaining the full possession of his intellect when he expired without a struggle. " He was fully impressed at the be gining of his complaint, as well as through every succeeding stage of it, that it conclusion would he mortal; submitting to the several exertions made for . hi recovery, rather a duty, than from any expectation of their eflicacy. He considered the opera- MRS. KOEIIN GAINED WEIGHT AND VIGOR How many women would like to get a good complexion, freedom from ner vousness agd new energy for the day's workt If your blood is thin read the experience of Mrs. Charles Koehn, of No. 7ofl Elm street, Buffalo, N. Y. She found the right tonic. " I was weak, rundown and without ambition," says Mrs. Koehn. "It seemed as though practically all of my strength had left my body and small tasks left me .exhausted. I was very nervous and worried so over my condi tion that I could pet little sleep. , My appetite was poor and I was daily los ing weight as well as strength. Med icines were prescribed for me but they gave only temporary benefit. " A friend, visiting at my hcim one day, asked me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. She told me they helped her und her daughter. 1 procured a box and began taking th' pills, In about two weeks I began to pick up strength and my appetite improved. As I continued taking the pills my complexion be came better and I knew my blood was growing richer. I have gained weight and am no longer nervous. I don't have difficulty getting to 6lcep and feel so rested now in the morning that I can go about my work with energy and en thusiasm, I feel that I owe a great deal to Dr. Williams' Ping Pills and strongly recommend them to women in need of a reliable tonic.'"

Adv. tiotis of death upon his system as coeval with the disease; and several' hours before his death, after repeated efforts to be understood, succeeded in expressing a 'desire that he might be permitted to die without further inter ruption. ' During the short period of his ill ness, he economized his time, in the arrangement of such few concerns' as required his attention, with the ut most serenity; and anticipated his ap poacliing dissolution with every dem onstration of that equanimity for which his whole life has been so uni formly and singularly conspicuous.

Road building and dirt road maintainance with Cletrac have passed the experimental stage as there are more of this make of tractor in use than anv other. Voters of Washington and Orange Counties See that an article is inserted in your M.irch meeting warn ing to purchase a Cletrac. Horses are too slow and expensive to draw road machinery now-a-days. We can refer you to towns which are using a Cletrac to the greatest advantage, and saving, and who are contemplating the purchase of additional Cletracs. Act Now in order thawhe coming season's road-building campaign may be benefited. H. G. Bennett, Barre, Vt.
