Situated on a blull'un the ast shore of Luke Mempbremagog, commanding a view of tlie lake and of Newport, und of the whole northern limits of the Oreen Mount ains, no finer place for residences could be found In the state. In fact, at present It Is a village of residences, mostly, with plenty of room for more, and the population is equal to that of Newport or Burton, within the town corporation. For many years West Derby was called the "Sleepy Hollow" of Vermont. Forty years ago it contuined about all the en terprise of thin vicinity, which was followed by 25 years of Blp Van Winkle sleep. Ten years ago It awoke by the sound of the Inter national Company's gong und commenced a new life, which has since been verv healthy. Just south of tho village lire Ball's Bluffs on the immediate shore of the lake und 50 feet above It. Nearly surrounded by the lake waters these bluff's are in fact a peninsula, for ine waters or rentier's cove reucblug well in- iiinii nearly cut on the mutts. They are eov- ; ered by a growth of Norway and soft pine, with an entire absence or underbrush. This beautiful spot is approucheil by "Lover's Lane," a shady street on which there are no buildings "Lover's Lane" because lovers do congregate there and walk Itsshailv length or turn aside into its beautiful groves of pine, uchcu. romance, anil natural beauties A dozen or. more summer cottages, well uuiu ami conveniently arranged are occupied every year. Seats, swings, hummocks and lovely nooks are near the very edge of the uiuii, uuu ncrc nature is seen lu its loveliest mood. There Is room for more cottages. A steam pump hits been recently placed upon the shores of the lake and water is pumped to each of the cottages. The purest of drinking water is obtained groin a newly bored well. nuu me locution ueiug within gunshot of all the modern conveniences of Newport, makes it one of the most desirable health and pleas ure resorts in America. The business of West Derby has experi enced a notable Increase in the past few years. The foundry and machine shop of V. K. Grundy has been in operation about nine years. The machine shop is completely equipped with six lathes, an iron planer, a milling machine und three drills, while there is a blacksmith shop and foundry in connec tion where a general foundry business is prosecuted. There is ulso a store-house in connection where is curried u line of belting, valves and fittings. A large business is done ia repairing saws for lumber mills hammer ing and re-toothing and this is the only firm in the state doing an extensive business in that line. Mr. Grandy is known all over the United States as an expert at hammering saws, and being recognized as an authority on this difficult work, ho receives requests for information and advice from all parts of the uouuiry wesi, norm ami south. Another extensive institution is the bottling works of W. II. Darling & Son, who occupy a large three-story building and were estab lished in 1887, with H. W. Dnrlintr, the son, as manager. This firm employs seven men, including two traveling salesmen. The plant with its complete equipment of machinery is operated by steam power and a very exteu sive business is done in the bottling of all carbonated drinks, while they manufacture the celebrated Newport beer, a nou-intoxicat- mg uriiiK. Tiiey also bottle Whcatley & Bates' non-intoxicating hop bitter ale. made in Shef field, England, and for which this firm are sole agents for Vermont. The nnrest nf n. ter is used by this firm, as it is taken from a viy ueep uriesiun wen. it. w.
