Wallace & Co's menagerie and three ring circus, which is to visit us the 14th, comes well recommended, and is undoubtedly one that is well worthy of general patronage. Its roll of performers is second to none in America in point of general and spec lai talent, ana within the list are many that have won cosmopolitan fame. The Congregational church of this place has issued a new catalogue of members, together with a Confession of Faith. It is a very neat specimen of typographical work, and, of course, is from the News and Citizen press. It contains a full list of its pastors and membership from the organization to the present time.

Carbee, of East Hatley, yue.. appro priately gave us the history of Canada, giving hs much information on a subject not very generally understood. Easay, "Cheerfulness," by Eva T. Ilendrix. of Westford. Cheerfulness was shown to be largely dependent upon good health, therefore the preservation of our health was for our interest as well as our com fort. Upon teachers, especially, is the duty of cheerfulness incumbent, to make the path of learning a pleasant and flow ery one for the pupils. Ahna M. Drug- gett, of Newport, gave the valedictory, and were excellent introductory remarks on character, an appropriate address to the school, an affectionate leave taking of the teachers and a few earnest words to the class, given in trembling tones which showed she felt the coming sepa ration. The class song by Lill B. Judd would do credit in its writing to a more pretentious poet, and in its rendering to a more pretentious choir. "We need none of us be ashamed of that," re marked an appreciative gentleman in our rear. After a piece by the band the cer tificates were presented to tne Class witn a few well chosen remarks oy rroi. Campbell. He claimed that our Normal schools were something more than an ex periment, in spite of the statement of their enemies to the contrary. The large audience which crowded the hall, friends of the graduates from abroad, visiting alumni and an interestod public general ly could but know that what tney nati seen and heard was the result of earnest, faithful work. Without saying anything derogatory to previous classes, we think ail must unite in pronouncing these grad uating exercises superior to any that ever went before. Without exception all the pieces were hneiy written, well com mitted, distinctly rendered and not wea risome in length, holding the undivided attention of the audience from first to last. The near friends of the young la dies who graduated can but be proud of their success, and all well merited tne beautiful boquet and basket of flowers presented to each as she closed her essay. The exercises were concluded with benediction "by the Rev. Mr. Sterling. Instantaneous Process. Carlos S Noyes is having the house on the farm occupied by Heman Thompson re-shingled.

The love and i.,it, Ieach of the four brothers in rendering as sistance is worthy of commendation. TOE NORMAL SCHOOL. The Normal school seems to go in doz ens this year. A round dozen names appeared on the programmes which were handed to us at the B exhibition on Thursday evening, June 23. The stage was tastefully decorated with potted plants in bloom, boquets and ferns, with festoons of cedar everywhere. The class motto appeared in the center of the back, wrought in daisies in the semblance of a boat with oars crossed underneath it "Row up, or you will drift down." The Johnson serenade band furnished the music, wherefore it "goes without say ing" that it was good. The rest of the programme was as follows: "Heroes of Uie Land of Penn ." W. Grant ran cher, Johnson. The Slaves of Martimciiie."IIattie M. Parker. Johnson. "How Girls Study," Clara M. Benton, Enos- bnrprh Falls. l tie aiiuucn Martyr, r.isie auanw, oiowe. Uncle 1 aniel'a Appropriation and Prayer. Liillian V. Ueeclicr, Johnson. "The Scholar," Florence E. Glllis, Barton. "The Light trom over the Range," Mary E. Wheeler, Fairfax. . , . . - "Baptism Defended?? Nida E. Uertrre, Stowe. "The Death Bridge of the Tay," Minerva A. Gordon, South Hero. "Extract from the last speech of Robert Em met," Melville O. Maurice, Cambridse. "The Bells of Lynn," Fersis L. Landon, John son. The last speaker was not present, ow ing to a sudden death in the family that day her grandfather, tiie venerable Mr. Chapin, being called home without a mo ment's warning. Aside from the omis sion of the last piece, the programme was fully and very acceptably carried out, to the manifest delight of the audi ence, who laughed or cried, as the selec tions ranged from humorous to pathetic. Many of the speakers showed great pow er of elocution and all evidenced the care ful training and drill they had received Normal Hall was as bright on Friday morning as sunshine gleaming on the flo ral decorations could make it. In place of the emblems of the night before, a large white shield bore on a massive gilt arrow the class motto, "forward, with "A" and "'88" all beautifully wrought in pansies. Above it hung a crayon por trait ot tne late lamented Mrs. Campbell. It seemed especially fitting that she, who m life had especial charge of the gradu atlng essays, should hover, in her pic tured semblance, above the scene, while we could but sadly remember that last graduating day she was on the stage in her usual health. To the inspiring mu sic of the band, the twelve "sweet girl graduates," all in creamy white, marched in and took their places on the stage. Prayer was ofiered by the Rev. Mr. Ster ling, of Glover. Genie B. Austin, John son's only representative in the class, de livered a very fine salutatory, practical and appropriate for the embryo teachers who are graduating. Jessie A. Rogers, of Waterville, told us of "Doing Better than Dreaming." She drew a charming ideal picture of the land of day dreams. but showed us that a sojourn in that land only enervated and unfitted us for life's actual duties. Julia A. Galusha, of Jer icho, the youngest member of the class, was the historian, and proved to us con clusively that those who had said "a class of all girls can't amount to much," were mistaken in their prediction. Five of the twelve graduated here completed the course in two years continuous study. The political preferences of the class she stated to be eight Republicans, one Pro hibitionist and three Democrats. In an swer to their future course in life, two had proposed to study medicine, one law, one fit for a soloist, one enter a con vent, one go as a missionary, and the rest Intended to make teaching their vo cation. She gave some amusing statis tics of the aggregate height, weight and age of the class, and took a wistful look at the future lying before them. Her pa per was a happy commingling of fact and fancy, provocative of smiles, and also of tears. The whole school finally rendered a song, "Happy and Light." with piano accompaniment. Essay by Lucia M. An drews, of Hinesburgh, "Power of Thought." The many instances she brought up of the great inventions of the world, proved her point conclusively. KIHe E. Patterson, ot South Albanv, spoke to us of "A Fixed Purpose," a sub ject especially appropriate to a class fit ted for teachers. She showed us that fix edness of purpose is a positive essential to success in all departments of life. Lilll B. Judd, of St. Johnsbury, gave an ad dress upon the class motto. Unlike the others, she brought no manuscript in her hand, but needed none to refer to, her ad dress being thoroughly committed. "For ward" was proved to be an appropriate motto for every station in life, and pro gress the Inevitable result ot right effort. VVe never do and never can standstill; if we do not go forward we are retro grading. Essav, "The Hand and its Work." Nellie S. Allen, Craftsbury. The hand is beautifully arranged, suited to every variety of motion and work. Man is the only animal that possesses it, and many philosophers have attributed man's superiority to the brute creation more to the hand than to the mind. Poem by Maybelle I. Gray, of West Derby, sub ject, "Shadows." "Where there are shadows there always is light." Many beautiful thoughts were enclosed in the musical words so clearly spoken. Cora B.Allen, of Craftsbury, enlarged upon the fable of "The Hare and the Tor toise." an encouragement to the plodding many as contrasted with the piunomenal ly gifted few. IVtseverance is the main thing la life. History teems with exam- CAMBRIDGE. Prof. Stone, of the Morrisville acad emy, was in town for a short time last week. The preceptress of the Morrisville Academy visited our village school re cently. The matched game of ball between the Morrisville nine and the Lone Stars, re suited in a victory for the former, the score standing 25 to 16. Miss Clara Colburne, so favorably known here as a teacher, was among the graduates of the University ot Vermont at the recent commencement. Viewed in the light of recent happen ings, the title of the operetta to be given by the D. Vs. is quite enective, viz "Goldeu Hair and the Three Bears."

Many years ago, when there was but one steamship line from New Yotk to San Francisco, the company took advantage of the people by charg ing them the exorbitant price of 100 for a single passage. Later on a new company started in and put the price down to 890. Then the old company reduced their price to $80. Finally an Irishman came to the office of the new company and enquired the price for a ticket and was told $90. He then went to the old company and asked the same question, when he was told that it was $80. " How is"this?" says Fat, " I thought it was a $100." So it was," said the clerk, " till these other fellows came in and made us come down." " Bejabbers,'' says Fat, "the ones I will patronize is the man that brought the price down." The above now applies in the cas e of I. A. White & Co. as to the price of crackers. Thev have brourrht the price down and they are the ones to patronize. Thanking our kind friends for their patronage in the past and soliciting a continuance of the same, we are yours truly, A. WHITE Co., Ana jueauei :s m rvsorrssville, QNOPOLISTS m IT" TPfii m Vermont.
