Tbe county officers elected last Soptember as
sumod tbelr duties Docetuber 1st. With two
exceptions they are all Democrats. Capt Ken
nedy, the new sheriff, has appointed nearly all
the deputies and tbe appointments wore gener
ally satisfactory to all parties. Ex-sheriff Hal
bert & Son, Wm Walker and I T Beeman were
appointed deputies In this town. It is under
stood that Mr Halhert will take charge of the
Jail nntll spring. John F Draper (Rep) receiv
ed the appointment for Sheldon; II B Ladd
(Rep) In Enosburgb; J P Goddard (Dem). In
Rlchford; A L Hall (Dem) In Uakerstleld.
The other appointments will probably soon be
made. Geo W Burleson of East Fairfield is
tbe now state's attornty. Mr Burloson is a
lawyer of ability and will make an efficient and
faithful officer. The . administration of A A
Hall, the retiring attorney, was one or marked
success and our people may well congratu late
themselves upon tbe prospect of having his
good work supplanted by the same Arm, Inde
pendent methods which characterized tbe pub
lic services of the former gentleman. We be
speak for the new administration, the hearty
co-operation of all our citizens.

Judge Royccs pumpkin pie festival is tbe joke
of the county. Those who conceived of the

bave signed it if thsy bad thought otberwiso.
