Bushee returned last week from Woonsocket, R. I., whith er he had been sudden!' called two weeks before by tue death of his fa ther. The following from the n or- cesier y may be of interest to many of Mr. Bushee's friends in this county : Died, at his home in WoonNorfcet. It. I.. Pec. SJOth, I'rof. JameH Iiushee, need 83 yenrs. The dwoaned will Im remembered by tunny of the citizens of Worcester, where he rewhleil 2u years. Early in life he chose teaching "s '' profession, which he followed with enthushtH tic devotion 58 years, not relinquishing his favorite pursuit until hehad attained the are of 80. While in Worcester he tauiiht several years a private school for young In dies, lie was connected for some time with the Worcester Medical College an professor of chemistry. For ten years he was engaged in the Highland Military School as principal of the scientific department, and his lectures on scientific subjects, with experimental illustra tions, were a prominent feature of that insti tution. He was a member of the Worcester Natural History Society from its foundation and therished a lively interest in it as long as he lived. The last eight years of his life were spent in Woonsoclctt amid the scenes of his early labors in his chosen profession. His re mains were carried to the tomb by six of his former pupils, representatives of hundreds still living who will cherish his memory with grateful regard and think of him asoiie whose whole life gave evidence of his unselfish love fur his work and desire for the highest moral hh we-1 as intellectual welfare of those whom he taught.. Many in this .community will be pained to learn of the death of Mrs. Cornelia A. Gleed, which occurred at Pueblo, Colorado, January 9. Her worth and lovely christian character was well known to our people, and she will long be tendeily remembered by those more intimately connected with her. The following from the Lawrence (Kan.) Tribune of January 10 shows how deep a hold she bad upon the hearts of the friends in the home of her adoption : Mrs. C. A. Gleed came to this city from Ver mont, a widow, when her two sons, Charles and Willis, were mere children, and here the family resided until their removal to Topeka, in 1H83. She never lost her interest in Law rence and Lawrence people, however looking back to the citv as "home till the very last, ind ihe lias ulways had a firm hold on the af- fwtionate regard of a large circle of personal friends. She had an unusually bright mind, was patient and uncomplaining under years ol great physical weakness sail mirroring, anil possessed strong attractions for young and old ulike. Her courage and hopefulness under many trials were unusual. In strongcommon sense, in quick percept ions and shrewd insight, m forcible and quuint expression, and in nim bleniss of wit she was a typical New Eng lander. Hit loss will be keenly felt bv a large circle in our ch y. and especially bv the older memlers of Plymouth church, of which or ganization she was a member. But this blow falls with peculiar force on her sons who were devoted to her, and her daughters-in-law of whom she often said 1 hey are my daughters indeed."' The heartfelt svmnnthv of this en tire community is with them in this hour of trial. HYDE PARK. Half-rate tickets are sold to Burling ton the loth.

Mr.' Sherwin's father, Gil- man, has been a deacon ot tne unurcn since its organization, some twenty-live years ago. The present morning mail arrange ment does not grow in favor ; in fact, the complaints against it are more nu merous than ever. The sooner the old time is restored the better will the peo ple, on this end of the line at least, appreciate it. J udge l'age has just received from L. S. Drew's Lake View Farm at Burling ton, a pair of thoroughbred three-months-old Yorkshire pigs, which he claims far excels in beauty and other wise both his Berkshire and White Ches ter. They are beauties. During January, Venus, Mars, Mer cury, and Neptune are evening stars, and Saturn, Jupiter, and Uranus are morning stars. The January moon fulls on the 17th. A partial eclipse of the moon occurs January 16. visible in Eu rope, Africa. North and South America, and the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The eclipse begins January 16 at 10:58 p. m., and ends at 2 a. m. The Catholic fair last week was largely attended and proved a success, both financially and otherwise. We under stand that the net avails therefrom will amount to some S-500. The entire affair was under the direction of Rev. Father Coathuel who, with his active corps of assistants, labored very zealously to bring about successful results. The proceeds will be used in procuring new seats and placing a choir gallery in the etiurcn. Attention is called to the advertise ment elsewhere of the Equitable Mort gage Company, of which R. W. liulburd of this place is the asjent. To meet the requirements of those having small amounts or those who desire to make a temporary disposition of their means and yet get a good rate of interest, this company now issues its certificate, bear ing five or six per cent, and running for any number of months up to two years. providing always that the period of time is three months, or multiples thereof. and the amount received is at least twen ty-live dollars. It loans no money ex cept on improved farm property. It has a capital of 2,000,000, and so far as we can learn is in every respect perfectly reliable. Parties having money to in vest will do well to consult this com pany. Gov. Cumhack's lecture last Thursday evening on lhe Model Husband " was not very largely attended, owing to the attractions elsewhere, and perhaps be cause there are so many model husbands in town that but few cared to hear about what they already knew. The lecture was one in reply to one on " The Model wile," and took up the cause ot the husband. The speaker showed how man might he made better were a few of the many praises bestowed upon woman occiiKionally conferred on the sterner sex, and how in various ways many of the burdens of njan's life might be lightened by woman's aid. It abounded n satire, poetic fancv, and wholesome1 truths. lie is an excellent speaker, has a good voice, and uses it well. Mr. Cumback is decidedly affable, makes many friends, and drops sunshine wher-1 ever lie poes. T. I,, rearl. W. M. ; T. S. Scott. S. W.; Lyman Jones, J. XV.; T. A. ' Riddle, Treas. ; S. II. Waters.

S.; Joseph Farnham, delegate to department encampment. A full house erected Gov. Cnmback at Normal Hall last Saturday evening. The speaker and audience were put in pleas ant trames ot mind by Heman Water man, Eq., who did the introductory hon ors. Our people had been led to expect much from the lecture, along both the parallel lines of humorous sense and sensible humors. These expectations were met, and in the opinion of many good judges, excelled. At the adjourned mentinr of the Nor mal school trustees held on Tuesday eve ning the following oflicers were elected : Kev. A. A. Smith, Pres.; Judge J. A. Andrews. Vioe Pres. ; Hon. I. L. Pearl, Sec; John K. Hill, Treas. E. P. Car penter was chosen trustee to fill the va cancy caused by the death of Dr. P. W. J. Peck. C. II. Stearns to fill that caused by the death of Frank Leland, A. W. Ferrin to till that caused by the death of C. T. Sabin. of Montpelier, and Hon. N. W. Fisk, of Isle LaMotte.and J. II. Wal bridge, of Concord, to fill other vacan cies. Immediately after prayer meeting ses sion Sunday evening Gov. Cumback oc cupied an hour at Normal Hall, topic: 'Christianity a controlling and educating force." The steadily increasing influ ence, purifying and progressive, of the life, cross and religion of Jesus Christ was clearly shown. The acknowledge ment of the sovereignty of the Saviour brought better conduct among nations. There are those here who believe it pos sible for an individual to be successful as a numerous and instructive lecturer, i well known and thorough paced politi tion, a sincere and zealous Christian and withal an out and out apostle ot total ab stinence and legal prohibition. These "visible some people" are eager to doubt evidence to tne contrary in case ot uov Cumback Eunice Ilolbrook. the widow of Alfred Ilolbrook, died at her residence in this town Sunday mornincr.

We are aware that feeling is at high tide and that people are liable to say things that in time they will regret, but this gives no occasion on the part of either party to make threats of what will or will not hrppen if this or that vote i-t not east so and so.

After attaining his majority he moved to Windsor county, where for several years he worked as a farm hand summers and taught school winters, doing with a will whatever his hands found to do. It was while teaching in the town of Barnard that be first met Miss Aliphal Briggs, who afterward became his wife and with whom he lived more than 55 vears Fpw men are so fortunate in the selection of a companion as was- he. and undoubtedly I much of his business success was due to ! the frugality industry and unselfish de-! votion of his wife, wiio united with these I qualities unusual intelligence, an analyt- j ical mind and a remarkable memory ; in- deed her mind was a repository of relic- j ions and political history, as we as m; i nor events aim personal reminiscences. At the ripe age of SO years she preceded her husband, only a lew months, to the summer land. Fifty-six years ago the present month Mr. Waite moved with his bride to stowe, wnere be had alreadv bought a farm and fitted tu a home nnil in this town their eight children were born, six ol wnom survive them. Here, in time, he brought his aged and depen dent parents who remained with him to the close of their respective lives, finding in him a kind and faithful son in their de clining years ; an unmarried brother and sister received substantial aid and in bis family they also ended their days. He was a self-made man and his life is an il lustration of the success which attends an earnest fpurpose and unceasing atten tion to business. He at once won, and to the close of his life retained, as he de served, the confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens. On several occasions he was chosen an officer of the town and at. other times appointed to positions of pub lic trust in me uiscuarge ol wine n duties he manifested the same vigilance, ener gy, and zeal which characterized the management vot I113 individual affairs. Possessing a'.-oiind judgment and a keeu and progressive mind, he took a compre hensive view of tilings and sympathized with all reformatory measures. In relig ion he was an outspoken Liberal, but was not fanatical or aggressive; he believed emphatically in the right of private judg ment, and held with an ancient Hindoo priest "That the soul of man is greater than all religions and above all man made institutions. He scorned all shams and despised all pretence. He valued a man for bis individual worth and not be cause of appearances or social standing. Hospitable, genial and eminently social, he enjoyed life and clung to it with a te nacity which marked his affection for his family and steadfastness to his friends. Although past 85 years, his mental facul ties were as bright and active as in mid dle life. A very large circle of relatives, friends and neighbors regret his depar ture and hold in high esteem his memory. There is unspeakable consolation in the hope that he remembers and loves the friends he has left, and that bv and bv out of the shadows of time into the sun shine of eternity, we shall go home to be with him. Not too much, not too little, but just enough, is the golden rule for feeding poultry, and the same rule applies to the use of Prolific Poultry Food. Just enough will work wonders in tilling the basket, whether in winter or sum mer. L. B. Lord, proprietor, Burling ton. Vt. For sale by L. B. Sherwin, Hyde Park, and A. O. Gates, Morrisville.
