Gleed, and a singer of the first order, ren dered several selections that were heartily enjoyed by those present. Mr. Walker, under the auspices of the young people's society, will give a recital at the Town Hall this (Wed nesday) evening that will be well worth public patronage. " Mr. Francis Walker was born at Glenn Falls New York. He early manifested u talent for music, and easily mastered its rudiments. In due time his voice developed into a line, power ful bassiK antante. After some years of study and public singing in this country, he went to Florence, Italy, to study with the famous Van iini'cini. Some months later he placed him self under the tuition of Francesco Coi tcsi, one of the greatest teachers of dramatic singing. With the maestro Cortesi he studied the leading roles of the best Italian operas, at the same time studying acting with the well-known teach er and veteran actor, Sclieggi. After some suc cessful appearances in Florence, Mr. Walker decided to go to London to study German and Fnglisli songs and oratorio. Then ensued his successful debut at the Crystal Palace and two years of work in oratorio and concert, which made bin favorably known to the English public. He returned to America a year ago and the fol lowing notice from a New York paper speaks for uim." "Mr Francis Walker, the basso who has had such marked success in New York during the nast wasoli. is destined to be a leading interpre- , ..1...... ...,-;,, iii tliiu iiilllltrv llw ler ' OI Illgll-l H""'1"' voice has a wild range, is very powi has a peculiar vibrating uuality which lingers on the ear.

A beautiful object in the western sky now is Venus, the evening star, which is fast moving on to her period of greatest brilliancy, which will occur August la. On that da-, at noon, she reaches a point about 40 degrees east of the sun. At this period in her orbit but a crescent of illuminated disc is turned our way. During the entire month of August she may be found at highest some 30 degrees high on the western heavens, so bright that one can scarcely marvel that the ancients regarded her as the flashing shield of the beautiful goddess of love. There is one less person indebted to the town for taxes this week than last. Arthur Leach was at the village last Wednesday evening and, besides being considerably boisterous " had quite a sum of money with him. Col lector Waite s iw him and thought it would be a grand opportunity to col lect some unpaid taxes. Mr. Leach positively affirmed he had not enough money wherewith to pay up, but Mr. Waite saw him get a bill changed and did not take any stock in that declara tion, and told Leach that he would jug him if he didn't pay at once. Arthur refused so to do and was promptly taken in. After being in the cooler about an hour he came to his senses and sent for the collector, and, after again trying " bluff game," but with out avail, paid up and was released from custody. We are of the opinion that Mr. AVaite means business with ail who are in arrears, and it would, be well for such to pay up if they wish him to keep away from them. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather Saturday morning, and the announcement two or three times that the pic-nic was postponed, about 140 accompanied by the band took the 11 o'clock train for Cambridge. At that time the skies brightened and shortly after the train reached Cam bridge the sun came out clearly. It was too damp to pic-nic at Lookout Park, so the excursionists were invit ed to State's Attorney Parker's lawn where the several baskets and boxes were opened and dinner partaken of. After dinner a stroll about the village and the base-ball game in Cutting's field (to which all the pic-nickers were admitted free) were the principle diversions. Some, however, went up to the Park and passed the time very pleasantly admiring the various views to be obtained from the several look out points. The Park is located on top of the mountain, is but a few minutes' walk from the village, and is nicely situated for pic-nic par ties. A large number also visited Reuben Brush's premises and were given a liberal supply of flowers. The excursionists were very kindly recived by the people of Cambridge and all were delighted with the afternoon's outing. We are sure our people will only be too glad to receive the Cam bridge folks, should they ever decide to pic-nic up this way. Little Classics. Supreme Court next Tuesday.

Born in this town he lived with bis parents until 24 years of age, when he married Laura Downey, whom he leaves behind to mourn his loss, with five children to bring up and lit for life's duties ; a task we think she will be equal to. Attend ing strictly to his own business, yet he was civil and courteous to all be chanced to meet. Master of his trade, that of a painter, he was called into close business relationship with the well-to-do class of people in Lamoille and Franklin coun ties, and the esteem in which he was held by all attests the worth of the man.
