Addison county sheep nien wlll learn wlth Interest that nfter Jan. 1 a special pcrmlt wlll bo requlred ln order to land ln Capc Colony. Cltlzens of South Amcrlca must learn wlth a shock of surprlse that "the Inter- lor of Colombla is almost entirely quiet.'i That lsn't Colonibla's norraal condltlon by several degrces. Conslderable cxeltenient was created ln Chicago last wetk by the appearance of a strange light ln the sky. The cx eltement was probably due to the phe nomena of scelng anything through Cblcago smokc. As lf gold, silver and hlgh grade mar ble was not sufllcicntly attractlve, Alaska now announecs that shc can also furnlsh petrolcum, the Important dUcovery hav lng been made in the Cook inlet reglon. Vermont may not have the coal oll, but she ls developing a goldmlne at Middle sex and can beat Alaska to a standstill on marblc. Owing to the press of advertislng and the publishlng of the president's mes sage, the Uegisti'.u has been obliged to oniit the weekly lnstallment of the llome Circle. We wlll next week complete D. r. Thompson's chapter on "Early Settlers of Middlebury," and tbis wlll be followed wlth a second very Interestlng sclectlon from another of Mr. Thomp son's novels. The South Carolina hiterstate and West Indian exposition op"iied oh Jlon day last at Charleston, S. C. Thls ex position has not been so widely adver tlsed as the Iluflilo or St. I.ouis falrs, but it is, ncvcrtlielcss, reported to be a hlghly creditable cxlilbition of Southern lndustries. Considerlng thac it reeeivcd no governtnent aicl, it ls entltled to the applause due to evidenee of independenee and energy in the Southern people. The supreine eourt seems to have set at rest tlie tiieory of a large nuiubcr of politieians, who, having suceessfully dclled the Constitution in ncqulring the I'hilipplne lslands, supposed tliey could phiy fast aud loose witli the new possess ions ln the matter of taxlng imporU therefrom In the nianner prescrlbed for "forelgn" territory. Juggling wlth the statutes of a eountry is a natural cor oliary to dellanco ot the fuudamental laws. The threHteued destructlon of large areas of forest in Vermont makes the reference of President Uoosevelt ln his message to forcst pref crvatlon of pecullar interest to Vermontcrs. The plan pro posed would not be operatiye in thls state, but the suggestlou is valuable because it calls attcution to tlie necessity for taking some action in tho prcmlses. We prlnt elsewhere on thls page the full text of the 1'resldent'e reference to the subject. The record of dcaths by rallway accldent ln the Unlted States, as glven in a government report, ls sufllclently ap palllng to justlfy the demand that at tcntlon be glven to life-savlng appllanccs. It ls not sufllclent to polnt out that more people proportlonally areklllcd In various other ways, or that the chance of being struck by llghtnlng ls greater than that of being kllled whlle traveling on the stcam cars. The point is that there are means of avoldlng much of the de structlon of llfe on railways, and that only tho parslmony of the rallway cor- poratlons stands in the way of thelr adoptlon. Tlie l'renldent on I'ureiit (rviitlin. l'roa. Hoosovolt'a Mi'asago to UongrcH I'ubllo oplnlon tlirough the Unlted States has moved steadlly toward a ust approclatlon of tho value of forests, whether planted or of natural growth. Tho great part played by them ln the creatlon and inalntenaiice of liu national wealtli is now more fully reallzed than ever before. Wise forcst protection does not mean tho wlthdrawal of tho forest rcsourccs, whether of wood, water or grass, from contrlbuting thclr full share to tho wel fare of the people, but, on tho contrary, glves the assurance pf larger aud moro ccrtaln supplles. Tho fuudamental idea of foreBtry ls the perpetuatlon ot forests by use. Forcst protectlon Is not an end ofitself; it ls a means to lncreaso and Bustaln tho rcsourccs of our eountry and ttic lndustries wuicn uepenu upon tncm. Tho presorvatlon of our forests is an lmperativo business nccessuy. vtro havo como to sce clcarly that whatevcr de- stroys the forcst execpt to mako way for agrlculturo threatens our well being. The practical usefulness ot the na' tlonal forcst rcscrves to tho mlnlng, grazing, irrlgatiou and othcr Interests of tho rcglons in whlch the rcserves lle has led to a wldcspead demand by tho peoplo of tho West for thclr protcc tlon and extenslon. Tho forcst rcBcrvcs wlll Inevltably be of stlll greater uso In the future than In the past. Additlons should be made to thcm whenever prac tlcable, and thelr usefulness should be Incrcased by a thoroughly buslncssllko management. At prcsent tho protectlon of the forest rcscrves resta wlth tho gencral land ofllce, the mapplng and (Uscrlptlon of their tlmber wlth the Unitcd States geologleal survey and tho preparations of plans for thelr conservative uso wlth the burcau of forestry, whlch Is also charged with tho general advanccraent of practical forestry In the Unlted States. These various functions should be unlted In the burcau of forestry, to whlch they properly belong. The prcs ent diflusion of responslblllty is bad from every standpolnt. It prevents that eflcctivc co-operatlon bctween the governmcnt and the nien who utllize the resourecs of the rcscrves without whlch the Interests of both must sufler. Tho sclentinc burcaus gcnerally should be put under the departmcnt of agriculture. The presidunt should liave by law the powcr of transferring lands for use as forest rcscrves to the department of agriculture. He already has such powcr in tho ease of lands nccucd by the ue partments of war and the navy. gradeETschool NOTES. Cyrus Norton, "03, ls Hl wlth typhoid fcvcr itt his home iu Addison.

Z - -y pctlt iurors were excused untll 0 o'clock 'next mornlng. The casc of Aliue I. Twltchell y. M. S. Carr was taken up and a Judgmcnt glven for tho plalntlfi by dcfault. It had been cxpcctcd that the case of Wm. Arthur Marcelle by his next frlend y. Hutland Ilatlroad Co. would be the flrst one on trlal, but after negotla tions betwcen the counsel tho case was settled and taken out of court, the plaln- tiffbcing glyen 8o00 and all his costs, in- cluding counsel fccs. Tho basls of thls case was the Iniury of young Marcelle In the frclght yard ln Middlebury last Jan uary. He was a new brakcman nnd owing to not havlng been properly ln- structcd in the worklngs of tho new au tomatlc brakes got the llrst flnger ot his rlght hand and half of the second tlnger cut ofl, white the thumb was badly crushed. Judge W. II. ltllss of Middle bury and Butler & Moloncy of Hutland wero Marcelle's counecl, and F. II. But ton of Hutland appcarcd in belmlf of the rallroad company. As no case was ready to be brought on the court at 3:13 o'clock took a recess untll 9 o'clock Wednesday mornlng. The absenco from court on the flrst day of two Middlebury attorneys who have died slnce the Juno term was gen- erally notcd, they being Ilon. L. D. El dredge and Jamcs E. Stapleton. The llrst trial of the term was got un der way W cdnesday forelioon at 10 o'clock. It wa3 tho bastardy case of Anna May Kimberley v. Chauncey Ackcrman, the town of Orwell bringlug the case through Oversecr of the I'oor II. D. Branch. Tlie platntlfl, Mlss Klm berley, told her story on the stand Judge Brnneh of Orwell also tcstlficd for the plalntiff. The defensc conslsted In a flat denlal of the uiaiD charge and an cflbrt to show that some one else was re sponsiblc. Slrs. Bazie, Ackerman's sls ter, Charles Feuton of Clcns Falls, and the defpndant himself were put on the stand for the defense. One Lyman Chandler was called but did not respond, and in resting its case the defense re served the rlght to call Chandler next day if he made his appearance. The plalntlfi was called agaln In rebuttal, but before sho had goue far wlth her story the court at o o'clock took a recess to 0 o'clock Thursday mornlng. Miss Kimberley did go far ennugli, however, to dcny point blank tho truth of about all the important polnts brought out for the defense. The case had taken up the entirc day unlnterruptedly, with the prospect that lt would occupy at least half a day tnore. The counsel were F. h. Fish of Vergennes for the plalntiff and Judge Bllss of Middlebury, assisted by Frank II. Thomas of Middlebury, for Ackerman, and there was some pretty strenuous work on each side in the course of tlie day. The character of the testi mony was for the most part such as to make it unprlntable ln a famlly paper llke the Ukgistek. Work was resumed Thursday mornlng promptly at 0 o'clock, wlth Mls3 Kim berley agaln on the stand in rebuttal. She agaln denied the truth of Fenton's testimony and was excued wlthin a couple of mlnute3. Then Mrs. Bazie was recalled. In response to two or three queitlons she contradictcd the prevlous wltnpss emphatically on cssential points. The defense aeain wanted Lyman Chand ler and statcd that ho was expected on the S:.')G train from tlie south, wlilcli was reported to be half an hour lHte. Judge Watsnu, however, said that tlie wltiie!s wanted was already 21 hours late, nnd as there was no eood reason to suppose that ho would be here on that train ho did not thlnk he would be justilled in liolding the case open on the strength of tho posslbility that Chandler mlght cuuie on tlie train; and the defense then resttd their case. The argumonts were at once bcgun and were all very.brief. Mr. Fish opened for the young woman plalutlll and wa3 followed for the defense by Frank V. Thomas. Judge Bllss then made the closing plea for young Ackcr man and Mr. l-isli aguln suoke brk'lly and closed the case. Judge Watson's charge was clear and short, taking up only 15 mlnutes, and the jury retired to conslder thelr verdict at 10:35 o'clock. They did not como back luto court before the noon recess and had not brought ln any verdict as we close our report. After a recess of 20 mlnutes another case was at once taken up and a jury was spcedlly empannclled. The case was that of Edson Tart's admlnlstratrlx v. Bristol Eleetrlc Light Co., George L. Ilasseltino of Bristol ond Mr. Fish rcpresenting the plalntlfi and Judge Bllss and W. B. I)un ton, of Iilcc & Ounton of Hutland, ap pearlng for the defendaut company Thls case Is brought by the wldow of Edson Tart to reeover damagcs from 1 tho Eleetrlc Light company for the death 1 of her husband, who was kllled whlle In thclr cmploy, negligence being alleged on tho part of the company The grand jury have been hard at worli slnco they took up thelr labors Tuesday ' afterno and have plcnty of work be jforctheni to occupy thelr time for the 'remninderof the week at least. They . . t . ... . ,, . have not yet brought ln any indictments. I The case of Xelson Jones of Shoreham, , , , ,..nru . . 1 who Is under 000 bontls on a charge of an attempt to procure an abortlon In conneetlon with the death of Ida Fos- burgh at Sliorehani In Mnrch last, was up for couslderatlon beforo them yester- day and wlll be agaln today Lati:i: No testimony was taken In I 10 lau-Jiectric i.ignt co. case yester- ' afternoon, but an hour was spent by the parties out of court in an attempt to arrlve at a settlement. A settlcmeut was llnally reached, by whlch tho plalutlll is to recelve S500 from the com patiy, withiiut costs; and the jury wero dlscharged from consldcrathyi ot the casc. At .'I o'clock tlie iury in the Kimberley Ackcrman caso cainc In, reported that they had not agrecd, and asked for fur- ther Instructlons, whlch wero glven by Judge Wntsou at somo lengtll', aud they agaln rctlred.
