M early cvery day some one has asked us if we kept glass or
where he cnuld get a brolcen pane re-set. People naturally come
to us, as we aro headquarters for builders' materials, and glass is
usually found with these goods. In order to save people trouble
and aL tlie same tims to increase our business, we have pnt in stock
a full line of all sizes of glass. Tlie quality is superior, and as it
was all bought at hard titnes' priees we can sell it at low prices.
We have a competunt gluzier who will sct glass at your hoine, or, if
the frame is brought to our shop, will do it "while you wait," and
charges for tliis work are very reasonable. In buying our stock of
glass we were very particular about thc quality.

bonds, being all of ono grado, would bo
acceptcd all over tbo world as au cqui va

gestions, ho says, would ttirn tlio tido of
gold to this country. Tbis proposod is
quito a contrast from tho bill of rtiin rc
portcd by tho Demooracy to tho IIouso.
In a rcccnt issuo wo noted a docision
of tlio Vermont Suprcmo Court rolativo
to tho dutics of tlio trcasurers of tho old
school districts. Tlio school law of 1802,
establisbinf; tlio town system of sehools
providod, by scotion 2, No. 20, that "tho
sovoral towus shall tako charco of tho
school houses and proporty boloimint:
thoreto." It was clalmcd by many
school districts that tlie school "propcr
ty" did not includo moncy and uncol
lcctcdtaxes; and in tho administration
of tbo law aftor April 1st, 180:5, wbcn tho
law took effect, somo distiicts dividod
thoir surplus funds amons tho taxpayors.
Othcrs paid it to thoir town trcasurers;
whilo many did peiMicr but rctaincd tlio
funds, awaitiiiK a judieial docision. Woll
informeJ pcrsons estimato tho numbcr of
school districts which havo rotained
thoir surplus funds or returnud thom to
tho taxpayers, at not less than eight liun
drod. Tho ftfihjoct of tbo propcr dispo
silion of tbeso moncys has bccn untler
carncst and soinctiiues heatcd discussion
in many towns for more than a ycir and
a half; and tho public can lot fail to bo
intcrested, in tho opinion of tho Suprcmo
Court which lias now been publisbcd in
full. Our readers will recall tlnt tho
lcadinc papers of our Stato maintained
from tho btart that all the proporty of
thc districts, includiii); mouoy on hand
and uiicollectcd ta.xcs, bolonijpd to tho
town, coiicurrind in this viow with many
of tho most iutolligent friouds of cduca
tion in tho Stato. Tlio Supromo Court
unanimously sustams this viow, as a
lcgal propositiou, and tho equitios of tho
caso and tho public intcrcst will aliko bo
obscrvcd by tho docision, Tlio moncy
was raised and tho taxos laid for school
purposcs alono. Tbo districts, whicH
wcro onco tbo trustccs of tho funds.
havo ccascd to bo sucli. They oxist
simply to closo up thoir business. Tlio
towns tako their places as trustecs, and
tho funds and other proporty in tlio pos
scssion of each district wlien tho law
took effect, or sinco acquired by it, must
bo handed over to tho town. This is tho
gist of tbo docision, and thoso wlio paid
over to tho town trcasurer aro all
right, thoso who held thoir funds will
now pay it, whilo thoso who sequestered
tbo funds will now havo to hustlc. indecd
it is probablf they will bo ob!i;ed to pay
tbo aniounts out of their own pockets as

Tho Proposed Clevelantl Musoum.
In our Tuosday's issuo wo gavo tlio
Xow York I'rcss's vorsion of tho possiblo
Cliristmas at tho Whito IIouso, but hcro
follows a proposal that "caps tho cli
max" :
A committo has been formcd in Lon
don to putchaso Carlylo's houso in Chel
sea, repair it, llt it up as a Carlylo mu
soum and establish it as a momonal.
Tliis supgests tho idea of a Clovcland
memorial. If Carlylo can be thus honor
ed in Kngland, surely tho grcat and good
ana consocratcd Grovcr Clovcland should
havo a similar honor paid to him in this
land of his temporary rcsideuce. Tlio
houso wlicro Mr. Clovcland lived in liuf
falo could bo purchased and fltted up as
a memorial to tho-Man-Afraid-to Go-Out-Alono.
Such a Clovoland muscnm is
uceded, and it could casily bo fllled with
relics of tho Consecrated Onc. Hero
could bo put on exhibition tlio uniform
that Mr. Clovoland's substituto woro
duiitiL' tho war and tho cun Iio carrinil.
Land over thom a picturo showiug tho
suusiuuto uyina irom wanc in a countrv
poorhouso. In ono cornor would Btand
Mr. Cloveland's favorito llshing polo the
ono that ho used to ro fishing with when
ho refused to roviow a parado of Union
votorans on Dccora'iondy.
In anotber part of tho houso oould bo
shown tho chair in which Mr. Clovoland
sat, when ho flrst thought of appointins
Grcsham as Sccrotary of Stato, and tho
pcn witli which ho did not sign tho Dom
ocratic Tanff bill. Thcro would bo a
picturo of him in liis Shcriff's uniform
and ono sbowlng him dodging Into tho
Whito IIouso whilo tho soldicrin thoson
try box stood guard. llohind a thick
flreproof glass framo could bo oxhibited
his oplniou of Mr. Hill and on tho tablo
would Ho a dogoarod oopy of his favorito
encyclopodia. In a large caso could bo
secn such valuablo mciuontos as a dtary
of tho Hog Islaud tr.ip, a 11st of tho sup
plics which woro put on board tho Violet
upon his last flshing oxcursion, an auto
graph lotter of thanks from Qucon Lil,
writton with a missionary's wishbouo,
and a statomont lu Jir. Cloveland's own
handwriting of liow ho camo to know of
