THE LAND OF THE SACRED GANGES When a Hindoo, Protap Mooomdar by name, was visiting this country, he went as all sijjtit-seers go, to Niagara. fter wards he wroto: 'Vheu I stood near the vast crah of the waterfall, the whole heavens seemed to melt in endless masses of the omnipresent fluid. Water above, water below, water streaming from horizon to horizon, water dancing. limping, foaming, rushing, roaring. threatening you with destruction. 1 wondered why ttie American men and women did not build a mighty cathedral near the Niagara, and with the music of the eternal cadence of the waters wor ship God, the Greater of all that is great and vast." This deftct in American life, discerning God through His migh ty creations in nature, which the Hindoo so quickly discovered, is surely not a fault in bis own land. The native re ligion of India has from earliest times been a nature-worshipping religion. With such charming scenery as India possesses, and such cloud-piercing moun tains, on the banks of such giant rivers, with such a clear sky, with such a glori ous sun, it is no wonder that the people have always looked at God as He has revealed Himself in nature. At the next meeting in the course of missionary sub jects, to beheld in the Congregational hureh. Sunday evening, April 22, some thing will be told about the ancient re ligion of India and its religion to-day, tiow missionaries live there, and what are the signs of promise that Christ, in stead of Buddha, will yet reign supreme m the hearts of the people. A most cordial invitation is given to all to be present who may be interested to learn of this subj-ct. HATTEETOWN.

The contest over the several road ma chines took place on the highway near the residence of Alfred Scoville, Thurs day. Some time ago the selectmen de cided to invest in a road machine. There being so many kinds on the mar ket it was a dillicult matter for our town fathers to decide which was the machine they wauled. After long deliberation ou tlie subject at several meetings they decided to have the several companies each send a machine and have them cstcd. There were five forwarded and very company sent a man along to ma- ipulate their own mechanical produo on. After a full day's trial, under dif- rent conditions and different qualities of roads, the selectmen had cut the num ber down to two but between these they idn t think they could with justice de- ide, as they were in their estimation so ear an equality.
