The Victor road machine, which we
mentioned last week, has been given a
fair trial and is pronounced generally
a success. Lovers of good roads
should examine that made by the ma
chine between V. D. Fitch's and H.

made and shows that the method of
road making, like many other things,
has been greatly improved on in the
past few years. We understand the
selectmen have purchased the machine.

Death of Alonzo Cobleigh.
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.

The new Victor road machine Is being
continuously employed, and with general
satisfaction. But the query arises, how
much of ihe 100 miles of highway in town

while other portions are perspiring over
the shovel and the hoe? It is said that
the machine will make all things smooth.

A Drummer's Adventure. 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. He then wound up by
saying that intemperance was mainly
caused by bad liquor, and that people
should be careful what they drank. Then
he sat down. A dead silence followed
and the chairman growled, "That was re
markable ending to your speech, Colon
el ; one would think that you were in the
whiskey business yourself." The drum
mer reached for his hat, got to the wing
of the stage, briefly explained matters
and left amid the howls of the audience.
