The corn crop this year is immense
so large that it cannot be "cor
nered," it is hoped.
The Democratic cry of extravagant
expenditures by the present adminis
tration is indeed ludicrous. Every
cent spent is by appropriations made
by the late Democratic House of
A prize of $6,000 is offered by
the Spanish government for the best
essay, in any of the modern lan
guages, on the fourth centenary of
the discovery of America by Co
lumbus. We'll bet some Yankee
takes the prize.
The Ohio campaign livens up with
the approach of fall weather. It may
be a brisk one, but the Buckeye boys
in blue have not forgotten Foraker's
little speech regarding those rebel
flags, and they will again rally around
their soldier-Governor.
Major Valentine's colonization
scheme seems to be taking in other
States. The Major has received nu
merous inquiries regarding the move
ment and also letters asking the price
of land in Vermont. Perhaps the
movement will "boom the State."
Another murder was committed by
"Jack the Ripper" last week, and not
discovered until ten days after it had
taken place, showing the slothfulness
of the London police. How long
will these atrocious crimes go unpun
ished, is a question which is agitating
the entire world.
Gov. Dillingham has selected Hon
Loveland C. Munson of Manchester,
as the successor of ex-Judge Veazey.
The appointment, which is an excel
lent one in every respect, is highly
spoken of on every hand. Judge
Munson is a lawyer of large experi
ence, has for many years been Judge
of Probate, and has served in both
the House and State Senate. Con
cerning the appointment Judge Pow
ers says : "Mr. Munson will make
an excellent Judge. He, like the late
Judge Pierpoint, has had many years'
service as Judge of Probate ; and this
experience will aid him in his new
duties. I am pleased with the ap
pointment." Just now a movement is on foot to
secure uniformity of text books
throughout the State. The movement
received its origin in Washington
county, that county having appointed
a committee to investigate the matter,
and as a result, a circular has been
from each county board of education
at a conference to be held in Mont
pelier September 2c. -The movement
we think is one in the right direction
The law compels uniformity of books
in each county and it can be easily
seen how advantageous it would be
were the books the same throughout
the State. They could be bought
cheaper, there would be a great saving
when families moved from one coun
ty to another, and would be a benefit
to districts that include fractions of
two counties. Other benefits would
no doubt result therefrom, and it is
to be hoped that at the conference
refered to, a decided stand will be
taken in the dirc;tion, which will be
of great benefit to the patrons of our
public schools. The Supervisors are
nearly all in sympathy with the
President Harrison has received the
resignation of James Tanner, com mis
sioner of pensions. The act is volun
tary on the part of Mr. Tanner,
though growing out of the somewhat
strained relations between that gentle
man and his superior officer, Secre
tary Noble of the interior department
This condition of things proved em
barrassing in the administration of the
pension bureau, and Mr. Tanner,
with a soldier's loyal recognition of
the value of discipline, gives way to
bis chief. His letter of resignation is
manly and good-natured, and shows
that cordial personal relations exist
between himself and the president
It is intimated that another excellent
and remunerative position has been
offered to Mr. Tanner, and it is cer
tain that nothinsr in connection with
the affair reflects in the remotest de
gree upon bis integrity or personal
character. There will be some disap
poinlment among veteran" Union sol
diers who are warm admirers of Cor
poral Tanner over the resignation, but
the assurance is given that there is no
desire or intention to-change the pen
sion policy of the administration, and
the old soldiers and tbeir dependents
may be certain that their necessities
will continue to receive the considera
tion which they deserve.
I be progress or the campaign in
the new States show how entirely mis
leading were the free trade prophecies
of Republican disaffection in the
northwest on this question. There is
every indication that the policy of
protection is just as strong among the
voters of the new State as it is here
in the east. Washington is the last
to adopt its platform, and the dis
patches indicate that it is fully up to
the standard of eastern Republican
ism and protection.
One good reason for sparing Jeff.

the present date the city is rising
from her ashes, with remodeled

seen. The new Seattle will be the
pride of Puget Sound. The immigra
tion this year from the East has been
immense similar to the California
immigration of the past. The coun

to get government land in the Puget
Sound country. Next year it will be
too late. Most of the money is to be
made in the rise of land. There are a
great many chances for the grocery

A Remarkable Storm. A wind
storm of phenomenal violence pre
vailed along the Atlantic coast from
Delaware to Cape Cod the first three
days of last week. Beginning at the
south with a cyclone storm from the
southeast, the furious gale chased up
the coast, piling up the waters of the
ocean in great masses and rolling
them in on the coast with irresistable
force many feet beyond their usual
limits. The greatest damage was on
the New Jersey and Long Island
coasts, where piers, walks, pavilions,
drives, bath houses, and all the para
phernalia of seaside summer resorts
were ruthlessly destroyed. On both
sides of New York City cellars and
basements were flooded, and great
quantities of goods were destroyed.
Blackwell's island was partially sub
merged, ferry boats made their land
ings with difficulty, and the coastwise
steamers were compelled to omit their
trips. The loss at Coney Island is
estimated at a quarter of a million of
dollars, and other resorts have suffered
in like proportion. On both Lonr
Island and the Jersey coast the rail
roads have suffered severely, and the
damage to shipping has been large.
According to the signal service ob
servers, this portion of our coast line
was within the outer edge of a verita
ble cyclone, which originated -in-the
West Indies, struck the United States
coast at Cape Hatteras.
On v ednesday the storm had
moved toward the South and was cen
tral over the Virginia coast. Atlantic
City on the New Jersey coast was
submerged and all railroad communi
cation was cut off. No less than forty
vessels were driven ashore on the Del
aware coast and many lives were lost.
In its suddenness, extent and phe
nomenal violence this storm will be
remembered as a companion to the
blizzard of March, 1888.

A Letter from Missouri.
St. Locis, Mo., Aug. 9, '89.
Editors News & Citizen :
St. Louis is agitating the question
whether it is possible to obtain the
world's fair, which it is presumed will
be held in some pait of the United
States in 1892 to commemorate the
discovery of America. If this expo
sition is not held in New York or in
Washington. St. Louis professes to be
able to capture the prize. Money is
being pledged freely " aid tl e enter
prise. There are certainly some points
in favor of this city. It'is the ceute;
of the United States, geographically,
and nearly the center of population.
All railroads lead here. The climate
is not so bad as it has been described,
by any means. There is plenty of
room, the hotel accommodatfons are
good, and the city has successfully
bandied large crowds. Contrary to
general belief, the city is as healthy as
any in the country, as shown by the
table of mortality.
Onething St. Louis will not toler
ate, and that is that the fair be held
in Chicago. To mention Chicago as
the proper place is to set the average
St. Louisan wild. The city is fairly
prosperous in a quiet way. There is
not such a noise made in the world
about St. Louis as about Chicago, or
Kansas City, or Denver, but if the
truth was known there is a greater
degree of prosperity existing here than
at any of those places. St. Louis is
owned by St. Louis people ; there is
little or no outside capital invested, so
it is ,to nobody's interest outside the
city to take it up.
It is curious to note the character of
the office holding class in this city and
in every other large town in the United
States. Ninety per cent, are either
foreigners or the children of foreign
ers. Americans are not found in
office. Irish and German prevail

We have had lately some interest
ing exhibitions of the incompetency of
insanity experts. A reporter of the
Republic, wishing to investigate the
com"tion of the insane asylum, had no
difficulty in getting himself declared
insane, but had a good deal of trouble
in getting out of the asylum. The
physicians declared him a dangerous
lunatic and pronounced him incurable
They did not then know he was 1
reporter; his friends were trying to
get him out on the plea of being able
to take care of him. They succeeded
after a good deal of trouble. He was
not more insane or dangerous than
newspaper men generally are. An
otner case was mat 01 a woman, an
Italian, at the Union depot.. She
began to act strangely after sitting in
the waiting-room a few hours. A
policeman came to the conclusion she
was insane, and took her to jail. She
could not speak a word of English.
The doctor at the dispensary exam
ined her and pronounced her danger
ously insane. She had a baby in her
arms, which was sent to a foundlings'
home, and the mother was bundled off
to the insane asylum. In a few hours
an Italian came raging around to
know where his wife was to be found.
He had left her at the depot while he
went to transact some business. On
his return she was gone, and he was
told his wife had gone crazy. He
hunted her up and found her hand
cuffed as a dangerous lunatic at the
asylum. It seems, when matters were
explained, that he was gone longer
than she expected, and becoming
alarmed, she began to make frantic
inquiries, and the intelligent police
man and physician mistook her anxi
ety for insanity . not being able to
understand her language.

A Visit to Mount Mansfield.
After many days of waiting and
wistful scanning of the oft cloud
capped mountaiu top not far away,
we, at last, have gathered from far
and near, and being favored with a
beautiful day, climbed the highest of
Vermont s Green Mountains, old lit.
Mansfield. We are assembled in
Stowe, from different towns in Ver
mont, New Hampshire and Massachu
setts and being long-separated rela
tives, the occasion is doubly joyous to
us. We all retire early the preceding
night, that we may be able to start
early in the morning. When morn
ing comes, all 13 confusion.
We already have secured one three
seated mountain wagon and find that
we need another. One man goes
to find the necessary conveyance,
while another makes a trip to the vil
lage in quest of crackers and cheese.
Every one is in a hurry, but with all
the flying around with fastest of
horses, it is nearly 1 1 o'clock before
the last shawl and dinner-basket is
tucked under the seats and we are
waving good-bj-e to those who remain
at the farm house to have supper
ready when we return tired and hun
gry. We roll swiftly along past farm
houses whose inmates rush to the
windows to see the noisy excursionists
pass, and pastures where handsome
colts break into a run and race with
us. Suddenly we spy a tree loaded
with beautiful rosy apples and with
the laughing consent of the owner, fill
our pockets. On we go for four
miles when the foot of the mountains
is reached where work for the horses
begins in good earnest. Up, up,
slowly winding around the mountain,
each ascent steeper and rougher than
the one preceeding, until we begin to
pity the horses and several of us jump
out and with the aid of a stout staff,
walk some distance, when we are
ready to exchange places with the re
mainder of the party. This is con
tinued until a shout from those
ahead informs us that the half way
house is near and we have climbed
two and one-half miles. That we
have all gained an appetite is soon
proven when we gather beside a cool
spring in the shade of the maples.
The house, old and partly tumbled
down, has long since passed its useful
days, except that it serves as a way
mark. Some time passes before we
start on again much refreshed and
rested. Higher and higher we climb.
Dizzy and more dizzy grows the sight.
first on the right, then on the lefi,
when suddenly coming around a bend
in the road, we see just ahead, the
Summit house, and towering two hun
dred feet above it, a black mass of
rocks called the Nose of the moun
tain. Arriving at the hotel, we rest awhile
and then climb the Nose. It is bard
work and some of the part- need con
siderable urging before they accom-
plibh the ascent. Once at the top,
we haye a fine view of the surround
ing country. Mountains are seen on
all sides, and awaj- to the west, a
long line of blue, stetcnes Lake
Champlain. The largest of barns
and houses look like tiny specks in
the vallev below. Wo find many sil
very and golden rocks to carry away
as mementoes of the occasion. The
wind is blowing at a brisk rate, mak
ing a long stay on this elevated
point somewhat disagreeable. Two
miles away is the Chin which,
upon finding to be about 300 feet
higher than the Nose, we are anxious
to climb ; but it is getting late and as
the descent of the mountain is slow
and dangerous, it is thought best not
to visit the Chin, but instead a cave
near the foot of the Nose. This is
large enough to contain several people
and affords comfortable seats of natu
ral formation in the rock.
It is now time to harness the horses ;
and leaving the gentlemen to attend
to this, we proceed to examine the
hotel which shows many signs of pre
vious visitors. Every window is cov
ered with names scratched in the
panes, and on looking over the hotel
register, we find many familiar names.
Having registered our names, we find
the horses ready, and with all brakes
on, start for horns. The road seems
rougher than ever and riding is not
extremely comfortable. After goin
about two miles, we overtake several
of the party who were afraid to ride
over the steepest places and have
started on before us. We try to be
patient while explaining that we have
plenty of brakes and finally succeed in
persuading the whole party to ride,
and in less than an hour reach the
foot. Now we unfasten all hold-backs
and drive fast until just at dusk, we
reach home, tired but well paid for our
trouble. Nellie L. Sanborn.

Vhen You Need
An Alterative Medicine, don't forget
that everything depends oil the kind
used. Ask for Ayer's Sarsaparilla and
take no other. For over forty years this
preparation has had the endorsement of
leading physicians and druggists, and
it has achieved a success unparalleled
iu the history of proprietary medicines.
" For a rash, from which I had suf
fered some months, my father, an M. 1.,
recommended Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
effected a cure. I am still taking this
medicine, as I tind it to be a most pow

Aver's Sarsaparilla for inany'years. It
