Wilmington, Yt. Juno 17th, 18'JO, NOTES. An exchange says when a town ceases to grow it commences to die, and if the people try to kill each oth er in business and good names, all the more rapidly will utter ruin come to all. Stand together for the ad vancement of every citizen. If a man shows ability to prosper, do not pull him back through jealousy, or weigh him down with cold indifference. Would-be funny papers can pei ne trate as many alleged jokes on Wan- amaker and his Sunday school as thev choose, but the fact that the postmaster general's sagacity and vigilance have etlectecl lor the next four years a saving of $352,000 in a single item ot the contract for stamp ed envelopes proves that he can run a great department of the government as successiuiiy as a cunuay school. The Louisiana lottery company has gained a victory in the legisla ture oi Jjouisiana, the senate havino- passed the lottery bill to renew the charter of the company after increas ing the amount to be paid the State for lottery privileges to -$1,250,000 per annum. 1 he bill as it passed the lowerhouse placed the amount at 000,000. the governor nas no power ot veto, but the bill will probably be presented to mm ior nis signature. ISetore it becomes operative, however. it will tie submitted to the popular vote in April, 1892. Illinois in 1880 led all of the States of the Union in her State indebted ness. Now she holds second place. Her bonded debt is $11,467,586, and her gross debt $11,760,595.89. The first place in amount of indebtedness has been yielded to Kansas. Her bonded debt is now $14,229,674.80, and her gross debt $14,817,781.29 an increase from $6,885,077, of bond- ieU ueot. andfrcwi H'?l,71Oi gross debt, in 1880. Missouri in 1880 was the second State in the Union in amount of indebtedness. She is now third. The bonded debt is $9,334.- 74.78, and the gross debt $9,974 33.90. Texas has increased her debt. She was the fifteenth State in indebtedness ten years ago. She is now the seventh, with a bonded debt of $7,166,072.40, and a cross debt of $6,678,563.59. Just at present the newspapers are telling of another case of cigarette a l ,i .-.c i : i suicide. A lad of sixteen years died last week in Brooklyn as a victim of this vice. He was an exemplary lad, his only marked fault lyingin his cig arette-smoking. When brought to the hospital his very fingers were jaundiced with the tobacco smoke he had taken into his system. His suf ferings were excruciating. Just be fore he died he said pitifully: "I wish that all the boys who smoke cigar ettes could see me now." These warning words could well be repeated by parents, guardians and teachers in our village, to boys whom they know to be in danger of similar ruin. The law is violated, and the trans gressors should be punished who a bet this dangerous vice. Advertising should be to the busi ness what fertilizers are to the farm. year may pass without any great results but in the end the soil will be come so rich that the value of the farm will be largely enhanced. The fertilizer is apparently lost. So is the advertising, but the value of the farm and the value of the business is raised sufficiently to makethe investment in advertising or fertilizers good ones. Our merchants should use a little more printers ink. A casual glance ta newspaper will showa list of men n town who help to build it up.

Helena, the Montana metropolis, lias some comfortable features which would be appreciated further East. The city is built mainly in the cele brated "Last Chance uuleh, which ielded in years past more than thirty million dollars in gold dust. The abundance of the precious metal led the miners into shiftless ways, and the washing of the dirt w as carelessly done, leaving considerable yellow dust in the ground. When excavat ing for a house now the soli removed is again treated, with the result usu ally of finding enough gold to moter- illv lie p pay tor the walls, it is saiu that a gentleman, a resident, with an eye to thrift, has provided the foot scraper at his dwellings with a recep tacle to catch the droppings, and once a month he has a "clean up'' which about, pays his rent. Such op portunities would excite attention in other cities, but the vast output of the neighboring mines, constantly pouring into Helena, so gorges the town with gold and silver that they have become almost a drug on the market.

T-iin,,i,iM, hi cMaiinsii ami man tain a library in Montpelier, Vt. Tl deceased was the widow of Martin M Kellogg, a retired capitalist, who dit a few months before his wife, lea ving ner a large amount ot real estate, Mrs. Kellogg's will was made on Nov ember 8, 1889. It bequeathed to the executors, Herman 11. Cam man and William Marr, in trust $50,000 with winch to build a chapel in the ceme tery tit Montpelier, where her husband was buried, and an additional $5000 with winch to build an ornamental entrance to the cemetery. The re mainder of the estate, which is esti mated to he worth between $350,000 and $;(),()00, was also bequeathed to the executors, to beexpended by them in building, furnishing and stocking with books a public library in Mont pelier, the details of the undertaking being placed in the hands of the ex ecutors. The will is contested bv a brother and sister of the dead wom an, who was a daughter of Erastus Hubbard of Montpelier. Daniel G. Rollins appeared for the contestants, while Henry .Mann and John E. Par sons defended the suit. The witnesses to the will were E. P. Young, clerk of the Chelsea apart ments, and Dr. F. M. Townsend. the attending physician. They testified bctore thesurrogate that the will was not read over to the woman, who was at the time supposed to be dying; that she did not declare it to be her will, and that when she signed it she was propped up in bed and the place for her name pointed out. In their opinion she was not in a disposing mind. On the other hand, Mr. Cam man, one of the executors, and who was present at the signing of the w ill, testified that in Iris opinion the testa trix was of disposing mind and was fully conscious of what she was do- ng. 1 he testatrix did not die imme diately, but made a partial recovery and lived for some weeks. The sur rogate intimated that he should re ject the will unless further testimony I was produced in its behalf, and he ad- 1 - i n .. . . journed the case until October next. Business is Business. -The Argus and Patriot has the following on free advertising. "News is news and ad vertising is advertising. In the latter category belongs the announcement of fairs, concerts or any other enter tainment to which an admission fee is charged, or at which money is taken for any cause whatever. Hence when a newspaper is asked to give a gratu itous publication of a notice of any thing of that kind it is simply asked to do so much advertising without pay for it, just as it would be if it was asked to advertise the sale of a house, farm, or any other property without pay. There is an impression in the minds of many that such announce ments are local news, but this is erro neous. There may be reasons why the publisher would be willing to do nate to the object named the sum that would ordinarily be charged for such advertising, but as a rule he should expect to be paid. It has been the custom of late for the Argus nnd Patriot to so charge, and that rule will hereafter be more strictly adhered to than in the past.7' Who is the Most Popular G. Man ? A. R.
