But Van derpool got full again Wednesday and after spending the night in the lock up, was hauled before Justice Newton and found he had feacbed the end of bis resources. He waa fined "0 and costs for intoxication and $20 and costs f ir disturbance of tbe peace, the a.'teiBJJtiv-e sentences amouoitng to 208 days in the House of Correction, and Hall took bim up yesterday. ' Michael Galvin.a cigar maker who has been here but short time and MichaelFl"ining and bis so-called wife. were another aaturday night trio, and after playing cards arid soaking about all night got into a jealous racket over tbe woman which necessitated Otiieer Hall's services.

Its Ravages In Westminster and Other Towna How to Cheek It-The grlen tlnc Fact. About It. - The army worm whose ravages bad for 10 days previous been reported at various points in Massachusetts and New Vork, is appearing at various points in tbe Connecticut Valley in this section, like a veritable Egyptian plague. Our Hinsdale oorrepondent tells a woful tale of its work there and in Weatm inter hundreds of acres of corn and oats have been entirely ruin ed and thousands of dollars of dam age done. In some cases farmers have burned tbeir crops to ret rid of tbem. Several other towns report the destruc tive worK in less serious proportion. Many fields about Centreville and east Brattleboro have suffered severely, and even some gardens in .the village here have been attacked.' It is the habit of the pest to devour everything j green in a field it attacks. It tras 'M years ago that this worm appeared here in serious proportions and J B Thomas whose fields were suffering, took a specimen to the late C C Frost who recommended a remedy which Mr Tbomas successfully applied and which the agricultural depatrhent officials are seuamg out in bulletins cow, with-some additions It is to plow around the affected field a deep ditch or furrow, leaving a perpendicular wall on the outside, up which the worms cannot climb. Then bolen made a foot or two deep, at 15 or 20 feet apart would in a short timo tie HI led witn them, where thev could easily be crushed or killed with kerosene. A broad band of tar also makes a good Imrriei, and is renewed as it becomes tilled with its captives. When marchng over a comparatively smooth piece of ground a heavy roller can be used to crush them. When al ready entered into a cornfield they mav oe kept from proceeding lurtner by ditching as above indicated. A few rows in advance of the progressing army should be spiayed with Pans green in water, or dusted, wnne tne dew is on, with dry Paris green and air-slacked lime. It is believed that the sudden ap pearance of the pest in localities 11 due to the fact that it thrives in marshy and wet . places from which it has beeo driven by the drying up of its haunts, and it is forced to seek its food in the fields of grass, rye, oats and wheat Prof. Lintner, the New York state entomologist says: It is not quite certain that this is the true army worm, Leucania uni- nuueta. Some of its operations in dicate that it nisy prove to be what is known as tbe wneat neau army worm, Leucaoia albolinea. The cater pillars of the two are so much alike that I cannot determine this point until some of tbe moths have been reared. 'The armv worm, when abundant is UBuatly'at tacked by a parasite which lays a number of its eggs on the fore cart of tbe. body near tbe bead. None of these are tojjtie seen on the caterpillars now with us, nor nas another parasite been observed prey ing upon thera. But otner observers say: mobi 01 the larger worms now bear on their backs, closely adhering, small, white eggs, which were stuck were oy an active little insect looking very mucn ke our common house fly ; from the eeg tnere will soon naicn minuie maggots, wnicli will Durrow mto tne army worms and revel in the juices and fatty tissueB of their bodies, grad ually sapping the life of the caterpil ais. raw, 11 any 01 tne army worms bearing the eggs of this little parasite nv will ever succeed in passing through the wonderful trafiformation to tho moth age."

THE REPUBLICAN RALLY. Small Audience, Chiefly Women and Little Enthusiasm Kindergarten Tar iff Talk by Col. Hooker -Account ol the St. Lonl. Convention by Or. Hoi ton-Sliver (Question Discussed by Mr. Martin. Because of the hot weather, the audience in Opera Hall for the open ing Republican rally was a verv small one and there were more ladies persent man men. ine lack of enthusiasm was marked but, much better, it was an attentively Jitetening crowd, in dicating that this is to he n campaign of thought and information, seeking instead of shoutng. Tbe "Bratlteboro Protective Quartette" consisting of Walter Gilbert Walter Stearns Fred erick and Frank Brazor ren- drred three selections very spiritedly from the Republican song book and the speeches were bv Col. Hooker, Hon. J. L. Martin and Dr. H. D. Hoi ton The Colonel's was chaarcterstc, abounding in bis bright turns, genrous in his allusions to .Mr. Kryao than whom be admitted there was "no more brilliant man living" but fur nishing assertion entirely iu place of arument His topic was the tariff and bis position, was ever, with the ques tions that have puzzled the profound est minos of tbe world, was that it was "too simple" to admit a discus sion before an intelligent audience. Ail'tbere was of it was a question of WBger, whether our labor shall be reduced to Englard's standard of living. "Free trade" (with a tariff on the article it covers averging higher than in war timet bad brought such importations (which as a mat ter of fact are running 810,000,000 to ?20,000,000 than under the McKinley cia) bad shut down shops and tha was the reason for the duloess in our organ business (fully half of whose product is going abroad and beating "cheap labor" in competition) and tbe shutting down of the Hinsdale and Ashuelot mills. And some one in England had told some one in New York who told bim that mills in Lan cashire were running 18 hours a day and if Democrats would give them five years more of it, they would get rich enough so they could afford to give away tbeir mills. Dr. Hoi ton came in late because be bad been called to Vernon for a sur gical operation, but gave a very graphic and interesting recount of the Chicago convention, which be re garded as the most notable in tbe history of the party, and like that of 1800 for importance to the country. The Doctor was on the committee of resolutions and told of many of the in cidents of its work and tbe discussion over different planks, especially on woman's suffrage, interspersing it ali witn many orient turns of tbougtK. The chief address of tbe evening was tnat of Mr Martin, who made a strong, a well-thought and well-studied ar gument on tbe money question. Especi ally good was bis illustration about bank deposits and checks and tbe effect of confidence or tbe lack of it One or two of bis positions might be controverted, but as a whole it was a discussion such as tbe people are look ing for in these times, and we there fore give it Dearly in full: The first claim of the sHverltes Is that under the act of Congress of 1873 silver was taken from Its place as money, thereby forcing a sin gle gold standard for our currency, resulting In a contraction of the money In circulation. This jioslUon is erroneans. In the first place the act of demonetization of lt73 has nothing to do, can have nothing to do, with the contraction of currency. We are using now all the silver that cm lie used and lie kept on a parity with gold. From ITui to 1871, a period of SI years, there was coined almiit 14,oii,ooo of silver. Prom 17:1 down to we coined tinder sjtecial acts of Congress, in a period of H years, 5(i0.0is),000. We have coined In tbe 12 years since the act of demuneUzation over three times the amount of silver buillion that was coined tn the 81 years proceeding It. 1 tvery nnancier admits tnat to maintain BRATTLEBORO W1CIF.TV.
