It ts now "Bennington Battlc Dny" in Vermont, why not "Bunker Hill Day," in tho Old Bay Stato?

Rkokntly thcro camo into a ncighboi ing villago a man, apparontly a strangcr. IIo was unknown and spcnt scveval days passing up and down tho streets. It was not until after ho wcnt away that it was lcarncd tho supposcd strancer for incrly residcd in tlio villago, but now su thorotighly disguised that recognition by thoso with whom ho convcrsed was imposslble. Many years before tho war ho residcd in tho villago just visttcd, and as a young man was rcspected and likcd, althougli ccccntric. Ho becamc intcicst cd in thc mechauism of safo locks, aud soon becamc an expcrt. Ho flnally cn tored tho employ of Lillic, tho safo inakcr, and was soon in great dcmand to opcn safcs whoso owncrs had lost their combinatiou, or through somo accident thc safo could not bo opcncd. It was said that he never failcd to opcn a safc. Onco ho remarkcd to a friend, who stood by him as ho opcncd ono: "Thcro is ono thing that I am afraid of. I can opcn any safo cver mado, and I am a puor man. Tliero is u tcmptatiou comes to ino at times that I can hardly resist." In tho 00's ho wcnt to Califoruia, whero lfo pursued his profcssion as a safo cxpert. Ono morning tho oflicials of ouc of tho largest banks in San Francisco, whcn thcy opcncd thoir safo door, found that duriim tho night it had bccn opcncd and $20,000 takcn out. Tlio door was found lockcd as usual. Tho castcrncr was at onco suspectcd, becauso Ikj was an cx port. Detectivcs shadowcd him, and proofs of his guilt wcro soon found. tio was arrcstcrl, tried and sentcnced for a long term in Stato prison. Through tho influcnco of leading pcoplo in this seo tion ho was pardoned out bcforo his tcrm expircd. and, dcsiring to rcnow his youth in memory and lmagination, has recently visitcd his old homc, but to no ono did ho royoal his idcntity. D. G. Burt, in Boston Sunday Hcrald. Wn aro in rcccipt of thb aunnal ad drcss of Ilon. Alpha Messer, Mastcr of tho Vermont Stato Grangc. Wo aro sorry, however, to seo that ho attacks Gradcd bjhools, for wo know ho is mis informcd. IIo says: "It is said, and I apprehend with moro than a shadow of truth, that tho staudard of our Gradcd aud High schools is not cqual to that of tho samo grado of schools in somo of our sistcr Now Englaud Statcs, but that our district schools aro fully cqual to, if not ahcad of, thoso in a-jy othor Stato. Tho rcason for tho comparativo lowcr staud ard in tho first-uamcd schools I will lcavo otliers to givo. Tlio rcason for tho high cr standard of our district schools is not owing to any distinctivo featuro of our school systcm, becauso, in rcality, wo had no system until two years ago, but it is owing to tho fact that Vermont has tlio smartcst childrcu of any Stato in tho Uuion. Tho Town Systcm, which was adoptcd by act of tho Lcgislaturo two years ago, has, in tho main, givcn satls factory rcsults; but in somo instanccs moro or less frictiou has bccn caused by acts of tho Lcgislaturo which grantcd special school privileges to portions of given towns." Mr. Mcsscr is mistaken in his comparison of Gradcd schools, as ho can find out by a visit to Burlington, Rutland, Bennington, or to any othor of tho 27 Graded districts in Vermont. Tho frictiou complaincd of is causod by tho asts of school dircctors in towns whoro tho attcmpt is mado to Compel cbildrcn to attcnd ono or moro cputril schools, and aro ostcusibly carricd back and f orth, rathcr than to any ovcrshadowing of "favorito districts," as ho calls tho Grad cd or incorporatcd schools. In licnning ton, with two Graded schools, tho town systotn works wcll, it is itdministtrcd ac- cordlng to tho spirit of tho law, as Mr. Mcsscr or auyono clso can loarn by com ing hero. And why cannot this bccomo tho oxperionco of otliers? In othcr ro spects tho addrcss, which was delivorod at tho 23d annual scssion of tho Stato Grango, last wcok, is an admirablo ; paper. ENfJiNEER.
