Fletcher of the State railroad com mission, in the loss of his estimable wife, whic h occurred suddenly Monday afternoon at St. Johnsbury, The "outlook" reports that nil the world physically, politically, moral lyseems to be in a state of appre hension at the present time. The map of Europe is bound to be reconstruct ed before long, if not the map of the Americas; and the fluid in the pen that reconstructs must probably be human blood. AVho holds the pen? and who "joggles?" h? Democratic senators in the Montana legislature, unlike their fel low Democrats in Congress, believe that leing present in the legislature aids in making a quorum, and conse quently have run away. The Repub lican senators at once adopted reso lutions imposing heavy lines upon all absentees. This will probably bring the runaways back double-quick. Considerable attention just now is being given to discussing the prohibi tory laws of this State, and in con nection therewith two or three news papers are making desperate efforts to arouse enthusiasm in behalf ot " high license. We have no doubt but that the papers which advocate high license are honest in their efforts to bring it about, and perhaps have given the subject much study. But as far as investigation goes it is very evident that the public pulse beats loudly and with no uncertain sound for a continuation of our present pro- hibitory laws. The public are not yet ready to take on high license with all of its uncertainties and put off pro hibition, which they have had for many years, and has thus far been proved the best for the people. Now we believe the besl and wisest course is for the people to see that our pres ent laws, which are good enough, are enforced, and if enforced would pro duce better results than any high li cense law could. Let the people take the matter in hand and in every town elect men to office who are pledged to, or decidedly in favor of, sustaining and enforcing the law. Orleans County Court. At the Orleans County Court last week was tried the case of S. A. Cleveland of Coventry vs. I. L. 1 earl & Co. of Johnson. The case was a iXH-uliar one, involving mixed issues of law and fact, and is, as given m evidence, as follows : The Defendants boimlit of the IMaintiff, S. A-Cleveland of Coventry, in June, liSNS, the hitter's wool, to be delivered at the store of Geo. R. Hoyt in West field. The Defendants, through Jed. Fearl, the junior member of the Defendant firm of 1. L. Fearl & Co. of Johnson, testified that it was stipulated at the time of the purchase that they would leave flie money with said Hoyt to pay for said wool; this, however, Cleveland denied, as he did that there was ever anything in any manner mentioned relative to the time, mode or place of payment. The wool was delivered agreeably to contract, on the 22d day of June, 1SSS, and the l'lamtitt took in pay ment therefor of Hovt $135, and his (Hoyt's) check for 137.40. Cleve land testiiied that at the time Hoyt said he had only 13.") in money, while a deposition from Hoyt was put into the case which stated that he (Hoyt) ottered at the time to pav the Plain tin the money, but that he preferred the check. The Defendant swore to having given Hoyt the money to pay lor the wool. I leveland negotiated the check and before it reached Bar ton bank, on which it was drawn, Hovt had tiled a petition in the court ot insolvency ami became an insolvent debtor. The defense moved for a verdict on two grounds: 1st, that the taking ot the check in pay ment was a discharge of the Defend ant: 2d, if it was not, the nejrlect of the Plaintiff. to make presentation for navment at once would so operate. - Touching the lirst ground, the Court instructed the jury that if they found that Cleveland m tact elected to take the check when the money was offered hfm, then they must find for the Defendants. The second ground resting entirely upon a mat ter law, the Court held the presenta tion to have been duly made, and with reasonable diligence. The jury were out a few minutes and returned a verdict for the Plaintiff to recover $l-"57.4 together with, interest and costs. Prouty and Parrel appeared for the Plaintiff, and Hon. L. II. Thompson for the Defendants. Speaker Keed. Speaker Reed is right, if not all right. It has been the custom for nearly sixty years for n mluui liy oil either side now and then to screw down the brakes of legislation by sit ting in their seats and refusing to rote either way when their names were called. Then one memler would arise and call attention to the fact that there was no quorum, and a call of the house would result, which con sumed time, was often repeated for days, until the majority was tired out. Both parties resorted to " filli bustering" upon occasions a nd were equally culpable, though we believe we are right in saying that it was a Democratic invention. All good men were tired of this bad habit, and Speaker Reed and a few others had the courage now to say it should be stopped. So the speaker prevented the usual call of the house by counting- those who were there, though silent, and thus made a quo rum. Ui course there was a howl m the "bear-garden" then, but the fpeaker could not see a Democrat seeking to make dilatory motions. We believe we hope he has beat en the minority in a parliamentary way so soundly that they will behave in the future, even though the time may come when it would be handy to "fillibuster" on the other side. Anil if there is anything unwarrantable in the action of the speaker, let him be legally condemned. This, however, is a ease where all the sympathy ought to go with the upper dog. The annual statement of The .Mu tual Life Insurance Company of New York shows the remarkable progress made by that institution during twelve months. I he record made by the Jlutual eclipses its own Inst efforts, and naturally exceeds that of any other financial institution in the world. The new business written amounted to $131,002,483.37 an increase of $48,38K,222.05 over the new risks assumed m 1888, and a gain of $82,144,013 over the busi ness of 1887 showing a continuous and phenomenal advance. Hie as sets of the Mutual Life now aggre gate $130,401,328.02, indicating a gain for the year of $10,319,1 74.4(5. The Company has now an outstand ing insurance account amounting to $363,949,933.82. Its total income frorr all sources is reported at 31, 119,019.02. It paid to its members during the year for death claims ami endowments and other obligations $13,200,008.38. Up to date the Mu tual has 182.310 policies in fon t showing a gain in membership for tht: year of 23,941, thus forming the big gest army of policy-holders in any regular Life Insurance Company in the world. The surplus fund was in creased $1,717,184.81 in 1889, and the Mutual now has $9,037,248.41 over and above every liability. "Ben Franklin" Sold. Vermont's celebrated stallion "Ben Franklin," the sire of "May Be," 2-24, and six others in the 2-30 list, has lcen sold. Four gentlemen from Nashville. Tenn., now own him; he was shipped to his new field last week Monday. Mr. Cutts received for him $10,000 cash, probably the largest sum ever paid lor a . horse born m ermont. He was 10 hands high, weighing 1100 lbs., and in color a beautiful chestnut.

In the past few years a number of towns in this State have been obliged to hold tlft-ir March meetings two or three weeks after the first Tuesday in March, owing to th? failure of tlieir Town Clerks to give proper notice of the same. The statuteprovides that notices of town meetings shall be given at least 12 days before the date of DieetiEfr. ana gives run uireetions in relation to the preparation of the warning. Town Clerks will undoubt edly profit by the lesson of the past and see to it that the voters of their respective towns are given proper notice of the March meeting. Klectric fSiTTEHS.

INSTALLMENT OP NOTES OF SOME OF LAMOILLE'S HPCNKY MEN. In a recent issue of vnnr miner read with pleasure a letter from Rich ard 15. Carpenter, formerly of Belvi dere, now of Southern California. No it is history that Richard Car IH-nter was a got id boy ; he could not be otherwise, for his father, like the father of the Gleeds, was a religious man. Bro. Belcher Carpenter was a preacher, although not as eloquent as his son Richard, and was afflicted with an impediment of speech. One of his charges was at Montgomery Center, and usually, on Sunday morn ings, as lie started forth to preach the gospel he took with him his trus ty rifle and on his return would bring in for Richard and the rest of the family sufficient game for a sumptu ous meal. At last he was brought before the rural ecclesiastical tribu nal, when in all due solemnity Bro Belcher arose and said : " Brothers and sisters, the reason I take my gun w ith me on da Lord's day is to t-teach the black t-tals, the white cat-tals and de ta-tatamounts that there is a Dodin Isiael." His gun was restored to him. ANOTHER. Martin Armstrong was one of the first sheriffs of Lamoille county, and when ordered to open court, in "due form" commenced: "Hear, hear, hear ve. all, all, all good men, an swer to your names when your names are called, and and and you won't be fined," whereupon Squire Sawyer remarked "Units the hrst time ever heard of a court being torn open." Still, Uncle Martin was an honorable man, and died in a ripeold age. His profanity was simply "by doddy. ..JUDGE POWERS. 1 notice that manv of the leading men of the State and leading papers, are supporting II. Henry Powers for Congress. If 1 were a voter and could control my own vote I should "op pose the motion." Judge Powers is wanted on the bench, for it must, be conceded that Judges Royce, Powers and Taft are the head of the present bench ; their natural ability and train ing has fitted them for the position, and Judge Royce will no doubt soon retire. I was at Montpelier the day the Legislature raised the salaries of the judges $."00, and for a time it looked as if the honest fanners would defeat the measure. Judge Powers was at that time holdingcourt there I met him on the street, and he looked at me anxiously and said "How is it up tothecapitol?" I told him thev had increased his pension 300, when he said: "Just as I ex pected; I" knew we were not asking for enough." While II. 1 lenry Powers would make a brilliant congressman he is needed where he now is. ABANDONED FARMS. I notice quite, an original epistle in the News and Citizen from Esquire Parker, of Cambridge, on this subject, and for once think he is about right. Vermont does not need colonizing just now, but Vermont funds need to be retained at home. I recently met a young acquaintance, who with a hundred others "went west," settled in South, Dakota, named a town " Vermontville," and there they have struggled for three years, only to buy seed at exhorbitant prices, plant it and receive no crops, and he was on his way east to buy an "abandoned farm." Yes, build up the mills at Waterville, inspire the water-power of the Lamoille, make it an indus trial State, and there will be no more croaking about "abandoned farms." Wallace Parker generally is thejoker, but his ideas on this subject are cor rect. T7NCLE JO. BAKER AND THE BELL. For many years Uncle Jo. Baker rang the "meeting-house bell" in Johnson. Unfortunately, one dav, yffiTila Tame oil' Hie til's t tia V bT April, ami some evil-disposed students stole the bell-tongue; then the sons of 1 ncle Joseph stopped the Grand father's Clock on the Sunday morn ing about a quarter before bell-time. At last he seized the situation, and on a dead run started for the old church ; he pulled the rope, but no re sponse, and then it is said he pro faned. A few got there about 12. Father Dougherty made a short prayer for the wayward sons, and by 1 o'clock the tongue was in its allot ted place, and divine service moved smoothly, REV. O. S. BASFORD. I notice that this reverend gentle man, formerly editor of the Hyde Park Xews, has secured a presiden tial post-office in Southern Dakota. Such is life. During the Barlow and Grout campaign I met the reverend gentleman on his way home from St. Albans, and he put his hand to his vest pocket and assured me he had been spiritually advised to support Barlow, and would have to do it. But politics in Vermont to-day are different from what they were twenty years ago. Now, every vote is given as a labor of love, and no candidate aspires for office only to sacrifice him-self-for the public good. Selah. for NORTH HYDE PARK. Elihne Wheelock is iu town.

We, lisffued the other day to an address delivered by an able and well-known authority on poult rv-rnisinir. It wns very practical,-nnd, abounded in good common-sense; hut it lost all of its value and force in one remark. It was one that is irfore or less true, and is common to the areraire poultry article in the newspapers. It was Ins: "Ifyou want etrirs be careful and nut have your hens fat." We felt like "getting right up in meeting" ami contradicting. This is not our experience; und it makes no differ ence who says it., it is a mistake. It requires pualification. A hen made fat by fat-forminir foods like corn-menl. is apt to be "too fat to ay;" tint one that is fed on the I'ro lHc Poul try Food will lie plump and round nnd "lay all the time." In this essential the Food haB o rival. There are preparations fed for the same purpose that "Make hens lay," but the ens are as on Hesti ns if fed on oats, rnot so the Prolific Food. Mixed with the morning niess tho hens will not only return manv imes the cost in the increased production of eggs, but the hen can be taken from hop nest for the table and be as fit for it ns a young cockerel. More than this, there is no prepa ration more economical. Only small quanti ties are fed, and the cost is but 25 cents a pound, of any druggist orseedsmnn, or direct from Ij. B.
