Out Annual Collecting Trip.
As has been our custom for many
years, a representative of the Mews
and Citizen will visit the several
towns in this vicinity within the next
few weeks, for the purpose of receiving
subscriptions for this paper. The
collector expects to meet many of the
old subscribers and hopes also to
see a large number of new ones. On
the second page of this paper, in the
first column, will be found a complete
clubbing list. Look it over carefully,
make your selections and have them
ready when we visit your town. We
want to see those who are in arrears,
as well as those who pay in advance.
It takes considerable money to run a
newspaper, and although the amount
each subscriber may owe us is small,
yet in the aggregate it amounts to a
large sum. t?o it is easy to see how
important it is that everybody pays.
Remember the time and place and be
on hand when we are there.
We shall be at the post-office at the
following places :
from 11 a. m. to 4 p. m.

At the present time our columns
are pretty well filled with advertise
ments, and it is necessary for us to
abbreviate somewhat our usual
amount of general reading matter
As this will last but a short time, we
crave the indulgence of our patrons,
it will prove interesting as well as
profitable to all to give the adver
tisements a close inspection.
ihe bt. Albans Messenger was oJ
years old last Saturday, and observed
the event by giving a review of its
past history. The paper has im
proved from year to year until now
it is one of the best weeklies in Ver
mont. A large number of our pat
rons take the Messenger in connection
with the News and Citizen. The two
papers make a first-class team when
yoked together, and at the low price
of $2.25 both find their way into
many Households. wtn these two
papers you get all the news.

Editors of Aows and Citizen : This evening
while sitting at my writinir table, undecided
whether to go to bed or take up a book, my
eye fell upon your paper, and the first thing
met was "Lamoille County Teachers." Tha
interested me and I followed it along to the
close and found it signed J. W. Redmond
County Supervisor. I have not the pleasure
of Ins acquaintance, but as he appeared
print, I want a little talk with him through
the same source, hoping that we may some
time meet and compare notes. 1 now au
dress mvself to Mr. Redmond.
I quote, "Does it behoove us then as citi
zens, and above all as teachers, to be igno
rant of our organic law?" I cannot agree
with you that teachers have a paramount
dutv to that of voter and the law-maker.

is it not quite possible yotf would leave both

unseat the Executive? Don't understand me

"onlv fault fif Buch it be called) that I find
with you, is that you stopped short of what
you should have done while on tnai sunjeci.
Look at our last legislature, violating the
eleventh article of the constitution and one
of the most comprehensive articles, and it
seems that there should be some test to know
if one is qualified to sit as a legislator before
taking his seat in the legislature. iow i am
going to propose an amendment or addition
to the constitution ; that the legislators be
fore taking their seats, shall pass as rigid ex
amination to determine ineir quaiim-ammo,
as vou erive the teachers. Let us have fair
play in this. Don't say the unqualified may
make our laws or violate our organic laws,

There is a natural reason and excuse for

Now Mr. Redmond, should you again re
turn to the subject, please carry the whole
thing to its legitimate end Then will you
have done something worthy of your pen.
I admit that it is a sad and dangerous fact,
that as a whole we know so little about con
stitutions, both State and .National. We
should know our rights and duties when
weighed by them, if yon want the proof
that there is need of a more thorough study
of the organic law, then try this experiment :

asked the above question of a Representative
just before he was going to take his seat in i
the legislative hall, and found I might as well j

The house of Normau Webster (formerly of
Johnson) was taken by storm the afternoon
and evening of Nov. 13, by a company of
about eighty. They were well burdened with
good things to eat and substantial presents
of silverware, etc. Webster and wife proved
equal to the occasion, and did their best to
make everyone happy. That they succeeded
is attested by all. The evening was passed
pleasantly in visiting and singing.

The Fellowship Meetings.
The Fellowship Meetings at Eden
Corners and North Hyde Park last
week were lairly attended, the pro
gram well rendered, and the results
will be found to have been profitable
The general topic at the Lden meet
ing was "Christ's Law the Basis of
Good Society." Rev. Mr. Anderson
opened with an excellent sermon on
the text "The fear of the Lord is the
beginning of knowledge," and Rev
Mr. Fisk closed with one on "The end
of the commandment is charity."
All the speakers were present except
one ; the little church has earned the
respect of the community; and its
guests expect to hear of its growth.
At Aorta Hyde .Park the general
topic was " The Bible and the Sanc
tuary Man's Best Blessings."
Rev. Messrs. bmitli and Tenney
were moderators oi the two meetings
respectively and save for the bad
weather the houses would probably
have been as full as the boxes were at
the "box dinners," The closing ser
mon was ou the text " AVe will not
forsake the house of our God." If
the Congregational churches of La
moille county only knew it, this pro
gram is well worthy of a number of
repetitions this winter.

mission has been called to the urgent
need of Congressional action for the
better protection of the lives and
limbs of those engaged in operating
the great interstate freight Jines of
the country, and especially of the
yardmen and brakemen. The Star
agrees with the president that it is a
reproach to our civilization that any
class of American workmen should,
in the pursuit of a necessary and use
ful vocation, be subjected to a peril
of life and limb as great as that of a
soldier in time of war. Nearly 10,000
railway brakemen petitioned the Com
mission asking that steps might be
taken looking to the use of automatic
bra kes and couplers on freight cars,
and the fetate railroad commission-

Adopted unanimously, upon the invi
tation of the Interstate Commerce
Commission, a resolution urging the
Commission to consider what can be

coupling and in handling the brakes
of 6uch cars. It is an astounding
fact that in a single year, or between
June 30, 1887, and June 30, 1888,
over z.uuu railway employes were
killed in service and more than 20,000
injured, surely this slaughter and
wholesale maiming can be stopped by
a little judicious and constitutional
legislation. Public Opinion.
Manual training is slowly making J
its way in all the civilized countries
of the world. No reform movement
has spread so rapidly, and because
the needs of the people demanded it.
It is already not only established,
but endowed under the London
school board ; classes for instruction
of teachers are being held in twelve
centers in London, to each of which
is given four lectures. This must ex
ert a great and salutary influence
upon all schools, even those not in
troducing the special devices of man
ual training. Such a reform as this
is far-reaching in its effects. We can
not begin to measure its influence.
The fact that "manual training" has
been demanded at all, shows a spirit
-of unrest and inquiry that is one of
the most hopeful signs of progress.
When the people legin to look out.
even though blindly, for something

thing better will be found. But man

more. The School Journal.

ing a good account ot himself as
soldier of the Union army, It is dated
Washington, July 2G, 18G3, and was
one of a series entitled "Stray Shots
from a Masked Uattery by an Old
Gunner," which appeared in the
Newsdealer. The writer once met
this poet of humble garb in the vil
lage of Johnson, Vt., and was forcibly
impressed by the intellectual vigor
and poetic taste ami discrimination
he exhibited. He had only a very or
uinary common school education
yet he quoted Shakespeare and the
leading poets, Lnghsh and American
with surprising facility, appositeness
appreciation and feeling. What has
now become of this untaught child of
genius lam unable to say. I havi
preserved the following specimen of
his poetic ability as being the best
tribute known to me, in fact the only
one to "uur uood Old Saxon
Tongue," and, bating perhaps, the
poetic license in the closing line (re
lating to a matter ol syntax), not
unworthy the late John O, Saxe or
the muse of Oliver Wendell Holmes
I love the good old Saxon tongue,
Legitimate and strong.
That sweetly rings in honest prose,
And sweeter still in song;
That has but one superlutive:
Whose adjectives are few
As wise and foolish, good and bad,
Fair, stormy, old and new ;
That ne'er confounds, with many words,
The false with what is true.
Has no " insc-iitaMe decrees,"
But boldl.vJ-J'UOyf fate:
No best reiwor "strong dislikes,"
But saya " I love," " I hate;"
That takes no journey round about
To reach a meaning plain.
But goes directly to its goii,
And then is off again.
And he who runs may read apace
Nor find his study vain ;
That needs no foreign phrase to add
To beauty or to strength
To crop its fair proportions, or
To give the needed length ;
That's pnre and perfect in itself
No wrinkle and no spot;
That's sure. in fitting words, to tell
Each sudor merry thought;
The most neglected, worst abused.
Best tongue of all the lot.
And many worthy learned men,

Through school-boy and collegiate days,

O'er authors grave, profound, they
With pale and sallow look.
Proud to be praised and nothing more,

The English spelling-book.
O, I love the good old Saxon tongue,
Legitimate and strong,
That sweetly rings in honest prose,
And sweeter still in song.

A Saxon lullaby
To soothe your infant lids to rest,
Or hush the rising sigh
There is no language hulf so sweet
On earth to you or I.
