Harry Noyes has lieen improving his vacation by-building sail-neat, which was launched on Llniore Pond last Friday. The boat, which is a very pretty and handsome one has been christened the " Idle Hour. It is substantially built and reflects great credit upon the builder. A number of those who attended the picnic Saturday had the pleasure of testing its sailing abilities and pro nounce it a well behaved craft. Another of those diminutive eggs, size 3x3! has found its way to our sanctum this time from Abbie Allen's hennery the product no doubt of a Democratic bird. Now if some one who has a dozen or two of the ordi nary sized ones, such as Republican fowls usually produce, will bring them in we are sure they will prove a pow erful restorative to our optic nerves, which have become somewhat dim med by gazing upon the late samples brought in. The Sunday school picnicat Elmore Pond last Saturday was attended by a large number adults as well as children making up a very pleasant party. Although the day was some what sultry, the occasion was enjoy ed by all. Elmore Pond is a fine body of water, and no better place in this section can be found for a day's out- ins. The great need however is a fine grove the shade now being some what limited. Mr. isacon, the owner of the grove is, constantly making improvements on his land and prom ises to have in a short time plenty of shade, minus the underbrush. Upon the earnest solicitation of his friends we understand that L. E. Harringtonhas consentedto hnvehis name used as a candidate for Repre sentative this fall. This will lie good news tojiany, as Mr. Harrington has repeatedly refused to allow the use of his name heretofore for the po sition. He is one of the thri vins bus iness men of the county, closely iden tified with all that pertains to build ing up the town ami is in every way a worthy citizen, lie has held various public offices and will go to Mont jielier fully prepared to labor for the best interest of the people. We hear of no other name on the part of the. Republicans for this position and we lelieve none will be presented against him. The fact that a Republican will lie elected no one doubts, but with Mr. Harrington as a candidate the Republican majority will not shrink. CENTREVILLE Those polts still continue to run the road.

And those persons who are aware that they shall have occasion to procure books should at once call upon the local seller and give him such information as will aid in calculating upon the quantity of mtroauciory oruers zo oe made. ine miroaucxory prices are. in nearly all cases, considerably lower than trie contract prices after. With but one exception, only six months from the 1st of July, 1890, is ariven for introduction and exchanges; so that, those who wish to avail them selves of an exchange of an old book tor the new one, or to buy one at the lowest price, will do well to attend to the matter withm,the time named Besides, it should be recollected that until another selection is estab lished, the use of any other text-books in the studies prescribed by law in the schools of the county is prohib ited." The law requires that the publishers of any book selected by the Board of Education, shall enter into a written contract to furnish for sale in the towns of each county, at such prices as shall be agreed upon, tor hve years tor all the books ordered. It is a matter of general notoriety that there was an exceedingly sharp and persistent competition among t he various publishers by their agents to secure the selection of their respect ive uooks. Tne Hoard think that, under the condition of things, the best practicable terms were secured. They have given especial attention to the matter of exchanges and obtained concessions oi all that was practic able. As the Board were not only authorized, but absolutely required to make such contracts as they were able to effect, all persons interested will readily see the propriety of stand ing by those contracts whether they happen to suit the convenience of all towns or individuals, or not. What ever may be thought of the wisdom of the law, or of any authorized pro ceedings under it, while it remains on the statute book, the duty of full acquiescence is clear. All the persons appointed to keep, sell, and exchange the books selected have been furnished with full lists of the books, and all the terms of con- ract with the different publishers, together with such instructions and directions as were thought .advisable by the Board. To avoid misunder standing and possible disappoint ment, it may be well to state, more explicitly, the conditions of exchange and prices. The person who keep3 the books is entitled to receive for his services ' ten per cent, advance upon the pub lisher's contract prices, together with such freight and express charges as he may actually pay out." The Board consider that he is entitled to lie same per cent, on books kept and exchanged by him Yor old books that he would receive on asae of the same book. The publishers will have to be paid the full introductory and con tract prices of the books ordered, and the keeper of them will have no means of realizing the ten per cent, which belongs to him, together with such transportation charges as he has paid, but to add it to the publisher's prices of the books, when he sells to the final purchaser or exchanger. To illustrate: Suppose the publisher's price of a book is 20 cents. If there were no transportation expenses the ook would be sold to the hnal pur chaser at 22 cents. If it was ex changed for an old book the party receiving the-new book would have to pay the keeper two cents at least, and more if there were transporta tion expenses. To entitle any party to the benefit of an exchange he must present a book of a kind which has been in use to some extent in the schools of t he county. Only such exchanges can be made as are specially provided for in the several contracts of publishers ; and full information about them can be obtained by applying to the keepers appointed in the several towns.

Bryant, who died in Elmore July 27, was born in Woodstock, Vt., in 1810, nnd wus therefore 74 yeurs of age. He received his education in thecommon schools. At the age of ten years he came to Elmore with his parents, the family remaining in town a part of the vwir,.then removing to the farm iu Morristowu now occupied by Harrison Dodge. Joseph studied law in Stowe and practiced several years after his. majority. Jn 1844 he married Laura M., daughter of Dr. Joel Camp and sister of Nor man and Joseph Camp, of this town. The licwly wedded couple then began housekeep ing and farming upon the Dodge iarm in Morristowu aforesaid. His next business venture was in purchasing the farm now oc cupied by Phil" Darling in Elmore, The re mainder of his life wasupent in this town, five years upon this farm, then living near Levi Doty's ut the Centre and upou the Carr farm, resjiectively, at which latter place he died. Until within a few years Mr. Bryant had some law liruetii'p in justine courts, and it is conceded by nil that had he duly qualified himself nnd entered the bar he would have been siH-cesnful as a lawyer, being endowed with great command of language, Hueney of expression and grace of manner, At or neur the close of the war, Mr, Bryant conceived the project of nn agricultural fair, to be held by the towns of Elmore ami Morristown eo jointly, and labored persistently ipitil the project was suicetsfiil, several annual fairs being held nt Elmore pond, of which Mr. Bry ant was the first president, we believe. The movement soon developed into the Lamoille County Fair Co., which held its first fair on the old grounds above Morrisville in or near the year 18(17. Well does the writer remem ber the delight, he experienced when a boy in attending those incipient displuys of pigs and peanuts, ot Jerseys and gingerbread. Af ter the organisation of the I.iinioille Fair Co. Mr. Bryant became its secretary, which office he held' until the project took the form of a stock company at a later stage. For a score of yeurs it has been universally affirmed that the conception, development and success of the Lamoille county fair was due more to J, W. Bryant than to any other man. About three years ago Mr. Bryant suffered a stroke of npoplexv, since which his mental faculties have rapidly failed him, and he has not left home during this period, we think. In politics he was a lifelong Republican. Aside from the office of grand juror we do' not learn of nny political preferment which he re ceived. Mr. Bryant was tall and spare in form, pleusant in person and courteous in inminer. He was studious in temperament and hubit. His wife survives him, also three children Roxana, wife of Curtis Brown; J. Hervey. residing in Williston; and George A., who remains at home. h. Elmore, Vt., August 4. 1800. The Tannery of the Past we remember it distinctly. There were, say, twenty vats out of doors chiefly used for naokino- dnwn hoIp- leather to tan during the winter, the accumulation of spent tan-bark being piled on top too deeply for Jack I'rost to penetrate and do any iiaun. inevats wesaw themmade indeed helped make some of them ana also helped "pack" them with blue clay before the inevitable nn well-nigh inexhaustible tan-bark filled around them to their brim In the house (almost buried in tan bark, was first the "heater," a wood en tub of twenty-five barrels' canaci ty, with a sheet-iron bottom, set on an arch, the flue of which coiled up to thecenter, and the water-tight (some times) pipe went ud to the roof through the middle of the heater. Great two-inch plugs or stoppers were to be found on three sides, and it was a tournament to see the tan ner astride the "spouts" withdraw the plugs and not eret scalded There was one power pump worked Dyaiong pole from the "tullinsr-mill attached almost over the said pump to one spoke ot a wheel, and the sue tion rod of the pump to another spoke quartering to the first, in a big oiu hub on a wooden gudgeon that was someliow nold ot the root of the building. The pump was a square wooden tube about four inches edge ways, and the suction was made by a pocket of leather at the bottom of the rod, held up by shoulder-straps nailed to the rod a suitable distant above. The mysteries of the lower valve the writer never fathomed (though he fell into the vat often enough and had to be fished out). and the system of conductors bv which the liquor in most of the vats could nnd its way underground to the one in the corner of which that old pump-stock was nailed was only understood because we had been t here mixing clay when the thing was put in and before it was covered. The water was understood to come in logs, first to the tanner's house on the hill above, and then to the tannery. Ihe bark-mill was a boisterous. complaining piece of machinery on the top of a shaft which constituted the center of an over-shot wheel, and it often got out of bark when we were tending it at the wages of "a whin- lash an hour," or rather looking out of the window at the overflow of the water above the "pent-stock," or up there at the top to see it another trout had got down the raceway. Ihe bark came semi-occasionally by way of the tanner's eldest and not very hopeful son, and his poor old horse, who wore the neighborhood soubriquet of "Hippity-clinch"; or by some team of a better grade belong ing to a neighbor, who had borrowed the tanner's "spud " (the only one in all those regions) and had peeled his hemlock logs before taking them to the saw-mill. There was an old up- and-down saw-mill above, which usu ally ran while its poor little pond lasted, and the bark-mill had to hur ry up and use the water over while it lasted, and the spent tan-bark how it did fill and make lurid a good deal of roadway for miles around. A lit tle of it when well dried was burned n the heater, and in winter the fires were often banked with it; but what a waste it was, and not even the tan ner knew thereof. His head was lull of philosophies trying to invent a perpetual motion, etc., but he never thought of making his business pay better, poor soul ! Ihe "curry-shop" was up the hill. and was often the resort of the neigh borhood in a rainy day in summer, and many a day in winter. Every man brought his hides thither, usual ly one or two per year, had his initials cut in thecorner, and inquired when the leather would be tanned, and if one hide would pay for the tan ning of the other. If any man want ed a harness, a new pair of tugs, or a pair ot boots, he would nnd the tan ner ready to cut the articles duly, and charge him a price by weight. Indeed, any man could buy a pair of taps tor his boots there, and go up in the loft of the building, where was a shoemaker's shop, and get them put on while he sat by in his stockings and discussed national politics or the af fairs of Hungary (Kossuth had just reached America), or compared notes witn otner neighbors as to cattle and crops. How much lore there was to be learned gratis in that tannery, to be sure. We learned to haul the hides from the vat into a pile, to spread them back so that they should color evenly, to cut and braid four-strand whiplashes, and even tried to test the strength ot the hemlock in the liquor by tasting; when the sole-leather was to be sent off we assisted in handling the dies which stamped the exact weight on every "side" of it, and ad ded the incontrovertible dictum of a B" or a "(," as the proper town officer directed. Indeed, we did a considerable business alone in "tan ning in white" cat, woodchuck and squirrel skins, which duly went into mittens or whips, or porte-monnaies, or book-covers, or little box-covers, or any of the thousand-and-one in- entions of a boy; and a smell of even an unseen tannery now brings it II up, with a variety of memories, some ot which we rejoice to recall : the faces of workmen and boys are as plain, now and then, as an amateur photograph, b. Morristown in this State recently held its centennial, which created much interest among the people of that town and vicinity and was largely attended. Ex-Governor George W. Hendee was president of the day and gave the address of welcome ; Judge Powers gave the historical address and W. A. Robinson preached a ser mon. There were several poems de livered and on the whole the exercises were elaborate, able and interesting. Those exercises which have for their object the perpetuation of our early history are very important for that purpose, and it is gratifying to observe the enthusiasm with which the Mor ristown people entered into the mat ter. Had they cared no more about it than the people of some other towns seem to, the historical matter thus collected would soon be lost.
