Joel H. Holton of Burlington will in all probability be tho next Demo cratic candidate for mayor of Burling ton. Ho is likely to be opposed by Hon. Hamilton K. Pcck.ex-city judge. Thero is a lighting chance for tho Democracy in Burlington, and, with such a man us Joel II. Holton at tho head of the ticket the chances are certainly improved. If Col. Bradley B. Smalley desires to continue his membership in tho uational committee he will be unani mously supported for the position, thero 'is no doubt of that, but the Globe may say ho has intimated that his connection with tho national com mittee is likely to cease with the close of the coming campaign. He has de voted a great many j ears, at consider able Riicrifieo of ncrsonul time, con venience nn monev. to the affairs of the party. ' . There is likely to be no serious division in tho party at tho conven tion. There may lie, there always are. a few personal differences which may lead to a little excitement, but there is no prospect for factional strife. All that sort of thing seems to have passed away with tho death of Hiram Atkins The younger element is com ing to the front in the party, and is strongly m favor ol harmony ami progress. The old scores are fast oe incAvined out. and u unified party- will in al probability attempt to lower the Republican majority this year. There is every probability that tho Vermont Democracy will take a strong and advanced position on tho liquor question, and will make an aggressive canvass for high license. The party has long been tho champion of greater liberalitv in this matter, and the present agitation of tho question will enablo it to even more effectively pur sun its policy. Tho Democrats of Vermont expect to draw recruits this year from two sources. Thev expect that their lib eral attitude on the liquor question will reinforce their rani's by the ele ment scattered hero and there through ., the. Ktnte which is opposed to nmt.ihitinn.

The surgeon removed it and transplanted a piece of tiesh from the patient's arm, and the last report is that ho is doing well. It is fervently hoped by his many friends that they will soon see him homo again, ready to expound Democratic principles, which he has so ably done m the past. Last week Rev. Virgil YY. Blackmail, the author of "Practical Christian ity,"' ami the more recent book "Sparks from an Anvil,'- wife and little daughter were thrown from their carriago and quite seriously injured, al Bethel. The carriage axle broke near tho left rear wheel and caused the misfortune. Only a few months ago Mr. Blackmail was thrown over a bridge and seriously, almost fatally, injured. One of the electric line men, 1. Ransom of Woodstock, fell from a step ladder while at work on wires in the Bethel shoe shop, and broke his left shoulder. The fall was not great, but the injury was very severe.

Senator Frank I'lundey.of Northfield, Vt., is a man of national reputation. No man today stands more prominently before tho people of the Statu of Ver mont than he. A lawyer by profession, ho waB elect ed to tho Houso of Representatives in 1882, is Trustee of Schools, Trustee of Northfield Bank, and Trustee of Nor wich University (a Military School under patronage of the U. S. Govern ment), has been Trustee of the Mont polier Seminary, Chairman of tho Re publican State Convention 188(1, Dele gate at large to the RepnblicanNation al Convention in 1888, was United States Attorney for Vermont 18811 to 18tU, and is now State Senator. Senator "Plumley is well-known throughout tho United Slates, having been selected by the National Republi can Committee as speaker to stump the State of Michigan for Blaine in 1884, and again in 1888 and 181)2 he spoke through the West for the Re publican presidential candidate. When ho came out of the presiden tial campaign in 'i)2, owing to over work ho was almost a complete nervous wreck. To our representative the Senator saiil : "In the fall of 1802 I came out of tho presidential campaign with my nervous system almost broken. "Rest and ordinary remedies did not assist me. Some of my personal friends advised mo to take a course of Dr. Greene's medicines, which I did with entire success. "'J use Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy for that exhaustion caused by long continued mental work, and think well of it. " We undertsand that Senator Plumley's cure is radical and complete, and while we congratulate the popular Senator on his recovery, we cannot but add that thiB is a distinct triumph for that marvelous medicine, Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, which, owing to the high standing of Senator Plumley, and the fact that he is bo widely known, will give Dr. Greene's Nervura a great boom. The remedy deserves it, for it is in truth a most wonderful curer of dis ease, a restorative and invigorator which stands at the present day with out a rival in making people well: a remedy which is always sure to cure, to give health and strength, to make whoever uses it strong and vigorous. This most valuable remedy is not a patent medicine and should not bo classed as such, for it is the discovery and prescription of ono of our leading specialists in nervous and chronic dis eases. Dr. Greene, of '.11 Temple Place, Boston, Mass. The doctor gives an added value to his great remedy by al lowing all who desire to consult him without charge, either in person or through the mail. 9 I'MICSIIIHK COl'KTV, H. II. IliUNilule.
