The custom of designating an annual Arbor-Day has already become honored by time, and the welcome recognition and observance of it by the citizens in I several of the commonwealths of our Union. It has extended from year to year and now prevails in many States, ana win, it is Deueveu, emorace our whole country in the near future. No measure can be devised which will con tribute more to the value, attractiveness and beauty of our Vermont towns, vil- , Iages and homes, than the judicious im provement of the economic adornments of nature, which may be so readily util ized by all. The so general and earnest response to the executive recommenda tion of last year by the people of the State, demands that a day be again des ignated lor united progression in tne work then so systematically organized and prosecuted throughout the towns and villages. Therefore, in obedience to the popular will, and In the hope that the practice may become general with Vermonters, as it has with the people ot other pro gressive States, I do hereby designate and set apart Saturday, the 24th day of April, instant, to be observed a3 Arbor Day in Vermont. And I recommend that the people prepare for its observance by an interchange of views, aud by further organization, discussion and distribution of information on the subject, that the labors of the day may be directed tow ards intelligent and enduring results. And I invite all societies, associations, army posts, schools and individuals to devote the day to the planting of trees, shrubbery and the viue, for ornameut. comfort and use in the parks and com mons, as well as by the private home. around the public buildings and society halls; on the school grounds, by the church, around the cemetery, and along the roadsides aud the village streets.

FROM WASHINGTON Correspondence of the News and Citizen. "Washington, D. C April 19, 1886. The recent elections in Ohio, Indi ana and other States have caused quite a ripple on the political surface, and the polititians are hard at work figuring out the cause of the great Republican gains. Of course anti administration Democrats attribute the result to the fact that President Cleveland has not removed every Re- Letter from Oregon. Hepner, Or., Apr. 6, 1886. Messrs. Editors : I have noticed several letters in your valuable paper from Portland, Oregon, signed "Doctor." I made some inquiries to find out who that Doctor was that has so much to say about this coast in his last, as well as other letters, and whose aim has been to "blow" the country, as well as the people. Now if you will allow me to say a few words" through the Neivs and Citizen I will say : I left Stowe 34 vears asro and have been on this publican official and filled his place I coast ever since ; have seen the "tips 1 nnrl Hrtnrrio7 rt thia mtintrV flnrl Sllf- Although the Senate has passed a bill to organize the Territory of Wash ington into a State, the chances are that it will be many years before it is admitted to the Union. General John A. Logan has been invited to deliver the Decoration Day oration before the Grand Army posts in New York city. The service will be held at Riverside park, by the tomb of General Grant. General Master Workman Powder- ly, of the Knights of Labor, has de clared war upon Jay Gould as the master monopolist of the age, and the latter having invoked the protection of the law, the battle will be fought in some legal arena if possible. The report that President Cleveland is to be married ia the Summer to pretty Miss Folsom, of Buffalo, the daughter of his former law partner, seems to be founded on fact, there now being lots of corroboration of the statement, and it is said that the mar riage will take place quietly, at the White House, in June. Secretary Manning is now reported to be progressing favoiably toward a with a Democrat. Administration Democrats say it arises from the same cause, but that the President has done all that he could, consistent with his promises before his election. That those who have temporarily voted with the ReDublicans while intending to A show their dissent towards the admin istration, in not making wholesale re movals are but punishing themselves, as the local offices and patronage tar exceed the public offices and patron age in number and value. They fur ther assert what is true, that outside of the 15,000 places coming directly under the civil service law, changes have really been made more rapidly than ever before, under any adminis tration, while about as many have been made in the civil service law. The Republicans, however, assert that the changes are but the natural result of the experiment of Democrat ic administration, that there is a growing feeling throughout the court try in favor of Republican principles and policies, and that instead of Mr. Cleveland's policy having had a ten dency to destroy Democratic suprem acy, it has really impaired the Repub lican strength in causing many who were heretofore hard, earnest workers, to keep quiet and not do the service they have in times past. They fur ther assert that further elections will further strengthen their views, and that the elections of this fall will show that the country desires the restora tion of the Republican party to power, and it will be demonstrated in the election of a Republican House of Representatives. The country had been led to believe that the Republican party had grown corrupt, that the rights of the masses had not been properly guarded, that extravagance was the rule, that the treasury had been robbed of millions and that a change would unearth much wrong doing. The change was made and the shrewdest Democrats were put in place to ferret out all wrong doing, point out where and when the treasury ha'd been robbed and to un earth all the extravagance and corrup tion that had prevailed. The keenest scented detectives and the shrewdest manipulators have been compelled to admit that under Republican control every department of the government had been managed honestly, economi cally and with an eve sinsrle to the best interests of all the people, and this has caused a reaction. The principles of the Republican the general direction of the treasury department before the hot weather begins, and to take up his daily office work again immediately after a sum mer vacation. Mrs. Gray's bakery in the city of New York, has suddenly sprung into fame as the scene of a boycott. Mrs. Gray refused to yield to the demand of the Bakers' Union, and her shop was boycotted, with the result that she is doing more business than ever. The persecution of Mrs. Gray is a sufficient proof of the tyranny to which the indiscriminate use of the boycott leads. In her case, however, the boy cott is likely to lead her to fortune. A terrible cyclone in Minnesota, Wednesday afternoon, played fearful havoc with the little city of St. Cloud, which is located on the Manitoba road about seventy-five miles north of St. Paul. The town, of Sauk Rapids, Dear by, also suffered heavily, many buildings being destroyed and several persons killed outright, among them the County Auditor, County Treasur er, Judge of the Court and his clerk, and the President of the National Bank. feisty-seven persons were killed outright and 140 injured. A large amount of property was destroyed. complete recovery, and it is believed party commend themselves to the bet by those nearest to him that if he has 1 ter elections of the people, and it bo set bacfrjww-irreable ta'Te9trme fbelaadmTtIed from Democratic sources that the business of the coun try has been conducted fairly, they, as one man, are in favor of a return to power of that party which has done so well. Not only so, but the people have noticed that the Republican party, out of power, has been just as honest, up right and just as when in power. From purely patriotic motives it has given to the country a law for the Presidential succession, non-partisan in its provisions ; presented an edu cational bill demanded by the exigen cies of the country, in which the south would be benefitted more than the north ; insisted on the admission of territories, having the requisite popu lation into the sisterhoods of States, whether Democratic or Republican in population, and in all its demands asks only that the rule of right shall obtain. Hundreds of other reasons could be given which challenge the respect of the whole people, prominent among which are its demands for a free bal lot and a fair count ; the protection of home industries and the strengthening of the national defences on sea as well as on land, and these things are tak ing deep root in the minds and con sciences of all, and causing an up heaval of public sentiment in favor of the return to power of the party of honesty, so proven by the acts and ad missions of its opponents. The quality of the feminine ele ments in man and woman was ex plained scientifically by Dr. Jacobs at a recent discussion. She said : The feminine elements might be enumera ted as discursiveness, 8Ui;k,;alit3r, immediate practicalness or shdTrfrange practicalness and personality. These are the result of ages of barbarous existence in which woman had to do her work and take care of her child at the same time. Three things were al ways on her mind, the baby, the din ner pot and the man who was coming back to growl about both. Hence, in her habits of mind she became discur sive and superficial.. Her short sight ed practicalness came from the appli cation of immediate and simple reme dies. The baby cried ; it must be soothed. The pot boiled over ; it must be taken from the fire. The man growled ; he must be cajoled into good nature. She never went beyond the second link in the chain. Her personal tendency came from think ing always of the child and its com fort. Queen Victoria's daughters are said to lead very dull and humdrum lives. They are too high to find equals in society; they must be surrounded with a certain degree of state and ceremony ; they have their people ia waiting, and everybody courtesies or bows to them. But this is the extent mcir grauueur. xnetr incomes are not to be compared with the revenue of the nobility ; their jewels and toi lets are interior to the trappings of many of the ladies who wait on them : they have no 'great estates, or man sions, even, but must put up with apartments in some half deserted pal ace ; and the spectacle thev present of impoverished royalty is pitiable rather than dignified. Most of the letters written by news paper correspondents in Mexico give very rosy accounts of the country, but one of them appears to have struck a very disagreeable section, although it is a health resort. . He says : "One may travel for days through this beau tiful wilderness without hearing the song of a bird, or meeting any ani mals but those that destroy. The ser pent is still master of the situation, and has begotten a numerous progeny. Gigantic rattlesnakes, deadly asps, and a hundred other dangerous spe cies glide away at your approach ; rep tiles prey upon each other in the mi asmatic lagoons ; most enormous lizards bask in the hot sunshine ; tar antulas, scorpions, centipedes and xins-xins abound in the burning sands, and parasitic plant3, like vegetable vampires 8uck the life-blood from every tree." Senator Morrill's Birthday. Sen ator Morrill of Vermont celebrated his 76th birthday last Wednesday evening by giving me annual party at which ail uis irienas aeiignt to oe in attendance. There is no man now in public life more esteemed than the senior Senator from Vermont, and his birthday parties are aiways ueugntiui. xue norai guts in the Senator's parlors were magnilicent. The a icsiuciii a uiu&cl, wim Liie wora con gratulations" on his card, was the finest of all. Next to this in beauty was the basket of roses from Secretary and Mrs. Whitney. A great many telegrams and letters were received. Among those who used the wire were Mr. Blaine and his guest, William Walter Phelps. Nearly all the Senators were present with their wives, and many Vermont friends. Among the guests were Gen. Edward Ripley, Gen. liazen and Miss Kate Field. Most of the justices of the Supreme Court were there, and many members of Congress. Boston Herald.

One cannot expect to come here and make a fortune without some exertion. If the Doctor is not suc cessful here, it is no different than is the case with a great many others of his profession. But, in regard to the Chinese movement, and the Chinese, he is very much in error. I have had thousands of dollars dealings with them, and as a rule they are honest in deal, if they can not help it, but a bigger set of thieves and gamblers cannot be found, nor a more filthy set, this sideof Canton, China. Any per son who has visited Second street in Portland will corroborate my state ment. I suppose the Doctor has no chickens for John Chinaman to steal, for if he had he would speak from the other corner of his mouth. In re gard to white labor, or this not being a hired man's country. As a rule, the ranchers in the Wilamette valley do not hire by the season, but there is always plenty of work in harvest ing, and at good wages. If a man wishes to work by the year he should go to Eastern Oregon. There is plenty of work on those stock ranges this sea son at $35 and 840 per month and board. I am in Portland every few weeks and see men of all classes who claim to want work. It is the same here as in all western towns filled with all grades of society that are looking for some place where they can live without work, or any exer tion whatever. I know of parties in Clackamas and Multuomah counties from Stowe and Waterbury ; Mr. Wil son from Waterbury and the Landon boys and Mr. Scribner, from Stowe, who to my certain knowledge are doing well. I was at Mr. Scribner's ranch not long ago, and it is one of the finest in the valle', situated 21 miles from Portland and seven miles from the Wilamette river. It is bench land and well adapted to whaat, and fruit of all kinds. He has this sea son put out a fine orchard, in addi tion to his others, of pears, apples, cherries, prunes, plumbs and no end of small fruit. His principal stock at present is hogs, but he is about to get a herd of Angora goats, one ol the finest kinds of stock for this coast. Although pork is low he has facilities for raising it cheap and easy. There plenty of government land within eight miles of him, and one piece of 160 acres two miles from his place, one mile from school and church and one-half mile from post-office. Now if men coming here want homes, let them go out into the country and they can nnd worK as well as Homes, in a climate, all things considered, second to none in the United States. The Doctor says, "We have lots of climate, and that is about all." There has never been a failure in crops, al though rancher's produce is low, and of course wages must come down ac cordingly. Wheat is worth 70 cents a bushel, oats 3d, potatoes 30 and 40. We are looking for better times in the future. I have known wheat $7 per and working oxen $450 and $500 yoke, and lumber in the rough $40 a thousand. That was what I called hard for a man without much capital to start in business. Now you can get extra cows for $35, and a 3'oke of oxen that will weigh 4000 pounds for 12o. iou can buy a span of horses weighing 3000 for $200 : sheep at $1.50 per head. It does not cost a very large sum to start on a ranch here at present Of course there is plenty of hard work here, as well as east, if one ex pects to succeed. I have no object whatever in the praise of this coast It suits me, and that is enough, and any man in good health can do well here if he tries. Things are different here than they are east, or at least dinerent than they were when 1 left I would like very much to see the changes that have taken place In 34 years on West Hill in Stowe. But am using too much space and will close for the present. A. Lewis. STATE ITEMS. An East Burke man has corn up six inches high already. Douglas Brace was arrested at St. Albans Saturday morning, on com plaint of James Currie for stealing a sum of money which the latter left by mistake on a table or counter in Dull ahan's meat market. Philander Davis of Richford, was arrested in Richford Thursday by Deputy Sheriff Draper, on the charge of burglarizing the store of George Bocash. Some of the stolen jewelry was found upon Davis, but he claims the ooods were given him by a friend. Davis now languishes in jail. Oscar Meyer was taken back to Windsor Friday by Sheriff Kennedy, his second trial having been post poned to the next term of court Meyer declared emphatically that he would not. go back to prison without a trial of his case. Work on the bridge from Alburgh to North Island has been suspended of late, but will be resumed when navigation opens. The contractors are to bring rubble-stone for the work from the Nathan Hill quarry, on the east side of Isle La Motte, where the3' will build a docs as soon as the ice goes out. A man named Curry, from Lamoille count', left St. Albans on the 6 a m. train on the Passumpsic road Fri day, got on top of a freight car and at Sheldon Junction was struck by a bridge and knocked down. When found some time later he was lying in a pool of blood. He was left at Sheldon, where medical attendance was procured, and at last accounts was in a fair way to recover. A town meeting was held at St. Johnsbury Saturday for the purpose of ascertaining if the town would ap propriate $5000 to aid in locating the Soldier's Home there. The meet ing was well attended. It was re solved to authorize Col. F. Fairbanks and Gen. II. K. Ide to offer $5000 to the State upon consideration that the Home is located there ; also that the Selectmen assesses a tax upon the list now in force. These resolutions were carried by a unanimous vote. Gov. Pingree has recently made the following appointments : Surry W. Stimson, special prosecutor at Lud low, under No. 112 of the acts of 1884 ; Dr. Joseph L. Perkins, of St. Johnsbury, a member of the State board of dental examiners, vice Dr. L. T. Lawton, of Rutland, removed to St. Paul, Minn. ; L. W. Vittum, of Veigenne, a justice of the peace within and for the county of Addi son, vice J. W. Parker removed to California. Asa Strong, of Northfield, who re cently died, at the age of 60 years, was one of the last of the living stage drivers of Vermont. For ten years he drove four six horse teams for Mahlon Cottrill, from Montpelier to Haverhill, N. H., and later four six horse teams from Montpelier to Roy alton, over the old hill road by the way of Northfield and Randolph Cen ter for W. II. Cottrill, now proprietor of the Waverly House, Appieton, Wis., and was a model stage man. His personal appearance was so neat that his fellow drivers called him "the band-box driver," and a cambric hand kerchief could not be soiled on his coach when brought to the door. He married Miss Coffrin, who was in the employ of the late Mahlon Cottrill, and after the completion of the Cen tral railroad lived at Northfield on bis well earned competency. A Reaction Against the Boycott I he popular j eaction against the unlawful and tyrannical methods adopted by some of the trades-unions which has unmistakably set in, has shown itself very distinctly in the case of Mrs. Gray, of New York city, the little woman whose modest bakery has been placed under boycott, be' cause she refused to compel her work' men to join the Bakers' Union, when they were satisfied with their places ana wages, and did not wish to join any union. The Bakers' Union has done its best to drive and keep awav her customers from her shop, but she has gained many more than she has lost. She has had over a thousand noiiars sent ner oy dinerent persons in the sums of $50 and $25, with di rections to send bread to that amount to hospitals and charitable institutions. The New York papers are giving her plenty of free advertising. Persons irom all parts ot the country visiting New York, go out of their way to load themselves with the products of her oven, and hand her bills of large denominations, for which thev refuse to accept change. The plucky little woman has about all she can do, what with baking, receiving assurances of sympathy and support, and running to the bank with fresh contributions to her fund. She is already obliged to employ extra help non-union, of course and all the men are working over time and getting additional pay for it. Meanwhile Mrs. Gray's friends have taken her case before the courts and the grand jury to see if some le gal protection cannot be secured for her against the existing coHspiracy to injure her business. hour members of the Bakers' Union, who have been actively engaged in the boycott, were arrested on Thursday, on a complaint of conspiracy, and the grand jury of the court of general sessions took up the matter of the boycott against her baker'. 'Ihe law construes the of fence as a misdemeanor, and the pen alty attached is a year in the peniten tiary or a fine of $500, or both, and as public sympathy is strongly on the side of the woman, it is not unlikely that the bojeotters may get a useful lessons; and. would-be boycotters all over the country receive a wholesome warning.

The "A CUE " subjects the soil to the action of a Steel Crusher and Leveter, and to the Cutting Liting, Turning process of Double Gangs of CAST STEEL COULTEBS, the peculiar shape and arrangers ent of which give immense cutting power. Thus the three operations of crushing lumps, leveling off the ground and thoroughly pulverizing tlie soil are performed at the tame time. The entire absence of Spikes or Spring Teeth avoids pulling up rubbish. It is especially adapted to inverted sod or hard clay, where other Harrows utterly fail; works perfectly on light soil, and is the only Harrow that cuts over the entire surface of the grouDd. Do not be deceived. Don't let dealers palm oft a base imitation, or some inferior tool under the assurance that it is better, but satisfy yourself by ordering art "jlCME" on trial. I will furnish a Double Gang ACME to any armer on trial. If it does not suit I will take it back free of expense. .Send for a deseriptiv pamphlet containing hundreds ot testimonials from farmers that have used the ACME in all the New England States .
