Alonzo Cobleigh, a long-time resi- ent of Hyde Park, and one of its most highly respected citizens, died at his residence in this village on Sunday morninc last. Until within a few months he had been a man of unusual- robust health, but in the latter part of the past winter was taken with what seemed to be a fever which his physi cian supposed he had broken up However, he did not rally from the at- tpU nd for the oast three or four months he has been slowly failing, and for some time past it has been evident that his disease was bejond the con trol of his physician. A post-mortem examination revealed the fact that his hpnrt. lnncrs and liver were diseased to such an extent that the best medi enl aid. had they fullv understood his case, could not long have prolonged his stay with us. Mr Cnhleio-h has been one ot our nrominent citizens, active, inrmy, nublic-spirited, an excellent neighbor, and one the best and most satisfactory public officers our town has ever had ai tiiu time of his decease he was Chairman of the board of Road Com missioners and First Constable and Collector of Taxes. He was for long time the trial Justice, and was repeatedly called to serve as county grand and petit juror. vui vaiuaoie as he was as a citizen the greatest loss is sustained by the Methodist church of our village, with which he has been connected for more than a quarter of a century. It is no disparagement to anv of the other members of that church to say that Mr. Cobleigh was its chief pillar, the one upon whom more than any other devolved the labors which all who are connected with any church so well understand devolve upon some leader. To Mr. Cobleigh's activity, energy and executive ability that church owed in a great measure its prosperity in this town. To his purse they always went for their heaviest contributions, and never vain. He was a cheerful giver in al most all public, and especially in all church matters, and although alway a strong Methodist, he was liberal minded, charitable and fraternal in his intercourse with sister denominations The Congregational church in this village has been the recipient of con tributions at his hands that show that his sectarianism was entirely of the unselfish kind, his subscription for the present year being we believe exceed ed by only two, and those, financial ability considered, were proportion ately much smaller than his. It was not alone in money contributions that he responded, for whenever any per sonal work was to be done (and who connected with any public, religious or charitable institution does not khow how much of it there is that some one must do?) his strong shoulder was always at tiie wheel. Did the Sunday School lack for a superintendent, M Cobleigh took the helm. Was there difficulty in raising the required sub scription for the support of the minis ter, Brother Cobleigh was the cue who must circulate the paper. Did the Methodist class lack a leader, Brother Cobleigh was called to that position. In fact, we recall few if any of the religious or church labors in our village, since it has been our good for tune to reside here, to which Mr. Cobleigh has not lent a cheerful and strong helping hand. Mr. Cobleigh was built with his an gularities. He was a square man, and he couldn't be made to fit a round hole. He had his views with reference to all nnhlie matters, and he was not slow in expressing them. He was especially outspoken in his views upon temper ance, and those views were somewhat radical. These things being so, he of course had his enemies. But since he has passed away we believe there are but few of our better citizens who do not "love him for the enemies he has made," and we opine that those of us who are left behind, as we glance along the ranks of our older citizens that have been so fast thinning out during the past decade, will find few whose loss we shall more deeply ap pr edate than that of Alonzo Cobleigh As a neighbor, as a Christian, as a temperance worker, as a friend, and as a townsman, we shall miss him. Mr. Cobleigh was born upon the 21st day of March in the year 1819, and was one of a large family of chil dren, nearly all of whom married and settled in this vicinity. Four brothers, Ira and John of this town ; James of Elmore and Simon, In the West, and three sisters, Mrs. Edmund Towle, Mrs. Asa Holbiook and Mrs. Alfred Mlolbrook, survive him. He was first married to "Miss Eliza Wilson, who died in this village in 1876. He again married Mrs. Julina Hyde, by whom he leaves his only surviving child, a bright boy of four years. The funeral, Rev. E. J. Ward offi ciating, was held at Union church Tuesday morning, and was attended by a large circle of friends, who thus bore testimony to the high regard and respect in which he was held. Camhell, Re-uniox. In the reign of King Benjamin the people said one to another, let us make unto our brother Robert a feast. Accordingly on the 13th day of the 0th mouth they arose, they and their children and children's child ren to the number of seventy or more, and went down to the land of their brother, taking with them goodly things of the fat of their land, wherewith to make their brother glad. And when their brother saw his people coming, he and his household ran out to meet them, saying, why hast thou come hither The king answered and said, to celebrate the remembrance of our fathers, the Camp- bellites. And he said, make thyseives at home whilst thou tarryesfc with me. And Flora, the daughter of Calvin, the sixth son, took with her an organ, on which the young damsels didst mane much music. The clergyman they also took with them, who spoke many words of comfort and advice. When the time for exercises arrived, the king arose and said, peace, be still. When quietude reigned the young men and maidens with May (the eldest daughter of David, the scribe,) presiding at the organ, didst rend the air with melody, (which they did many times during the exercises). Then the high priest, upon the bended knee, didst invoke divine blessing upon the occasion ; after which the editor and editress, Leo and Abbie, the son and daughter of Delia, whose surname is Gates, didst read the Campbell journal, a paper printed by the society semi-occa-sionally, in which there were many things wise and otherwise. Then the King spoKe at lengin or uie miner oi ms tribe, portraying his life while he inhab ited the land in which the tribe now sojourn. At the close of which, the matrons announceu tnac tne least w as readv. and the king said to his tribe, the Campbellites, we will now repair to the tables spread with the goodly things brought rrom the Jana or our nomes auu partake thereof to strengthen the inner man while we return to the land of our fathers. Accordingly they proceeded to the feast with their brother and ftis spouse at the head, followed by the king and queen and under officers and invited guests in their proper places. As the bodyas well as the soul had been sup plied with food, the king said, we now bid our brother Robert and his house hold good bye, and return to the -land from whence we came. D.

A comi cal adventure happened to fine a looking drummer for a liquor house who was lately doing Baltimore. One evening he was passing a place where a crowd were ascending a stairway, when a grave looking gentleman seized him by the hand saying, "Come along, Colonel, I am glad to see you." Thinking it a good oke the drummer compueu, ana was taken to a seat on a platform facing a brilliant audience of ladies and gentle men. It proved to be a temperance meeting, and after several speeches the gentleman who had carried the drummer n. remarked that Col.lBlank was with them, and that although obliged to catch a train he would address them briefly. He waved his hand to the drummer, who, finding himself in for it, advanced to the front of the stage, took a drink of water and sailed into his subject. He indulged in a few general remarks, and made the crowd laugh by telling a few ot John B. Gough's jokes.

' 80 WHY THE ' 3ST IE "W iimiMih RAKE Is Better Than Any Other: It has a slcd rucner tooth to prevent scratching. It costs more than an ordinary Bake tooth, but ia worth ten times the cost. It will run over trash lyi g on the ground, and leave it there. It Will rake Barlev. Rvn. On tK. Hnnimrlnn and Millit free lrom dirt. It is so easily managed that a boy that can drive a horse can use it as well aa a stroDg man. It can be locked down to make very large windrows, or bunch them up. It will rake green grass perfectlv, without trouble, even if the grass ia heavy. It has an oscillating cleaner that keeps the hay from rolling and working out at both ends, and from working into the wheels. It will rake " scatterings " perfectly, because the cleaner keeps the bay from rolling, and the sled-runner teeth from jumping. It is very easy to keep ud the teeth after iroinor over a windrow. It packs the windrow, leaving it In good shape for rolling up or pitching. It has no springs to get out of order. It will give better satisfaction than any other rake sold in this country. It can be returned at our exnense. ifit does not prove as above, by any one that will use it long enough to understand it. These Rakes are sold with the Express understanding, that, if not better than any other in the country, we will pay the freight and order away. H. A. Slayton & Co. Morrisville, Vt.
