This is the Republican opportunity and should be embraced without fail. The Hardwick Gazette published last week a picture of Judge Powers, which it styles as "an excellent cut of that gentleman." We fear Rro. Harris' judgment of good cuts is not as good as on some other things. t The Montpelier Argus' repoit of the late Republican convention in this count v was such a mis-statement of facts that we fear the author has forgotten the fate which lefell one Ananias for prevaricating the truth. On our first page we publish an in teresting article from the Boston Glol1 entitled "Among Vermont's Hills." It is a descriptive account of a trip to Mt. Mansfield via Newport and No. Troy, and is from the jen of one of Vermont's most graphic ami entertaining writers. Read it. The approval by the President of the "original package" bill disposes of this much mooted question. By the bill all liquors sent into any State, in original packages or otherwise are subject to the same laws as liquors manufactured within the State. By this bill connection with prohibitory laws is disposed of. Tjf p7iforw of th'T.tiilhv Tn'l.iiii," and reunion I'nion are having jin amusing controversy just now, and some strong inuendoes are hurled ut each other. It is difficult to state how the affair will end up, but as a jsort of quietus to their raging pas sions we suggest they repeat the lit tle oem, "Let dogs delight," &c. The presentation of a stand of col ors from Gov. Smith to the Vermont Veterans Association at Boston Mon day evening will be recorded as one of the pleasant events of the Encamp ment. Coming as it does from the old war Governor, the gift is exceed ingly appropriate, and again testifies the high regard the Governor has for the Green Mountain veterans. If the " weekly payment " question does not receive consideration by the next Legislature it will not le the fault of M. II. Davis of Island Pond, who lias sent a letter to every news paper in the State regarding weekly payments. It is an important ques tion and we believe it should not only lie considered, but a law passed by theeoming legislature. The "labor er is worthy of his hire" and the best results are always attained where the cash comes round once a. week. We note with pleasure that almost very paper has published the letter and many of them strongly .advocate the adoption of the proposed law. The Democratic papers are all mak ing a great howl and hnbbubover the Federal Election Bill, which they seek to make odious by calling a "Force Bill," and by wilfully and HTsistently misrepresenting its provisions and intent. They fail, in many instances, to give the text of the bill to their readers, even in a condensed form, liecause if they did it would show it self to lie so fair, just and reasonable in its provisions and exactions that no one who really wants a fair vote and an honest count could find any fault whatever with it. These Demo cratic organs know very well that this bill would secure a fair and hon est vote all over the South as well as other points of the country, but they fear the result of a fair vote and count. Hence the opposition and misrepresentation. Freight Ratks by Lake and Canal. Senator Morill in his recent speech in the senate stated one of the chief difficulties with which the Vermont farmer has to contend, when he said : "The cost of freight by railroad of corn or wheat from Burlington, Vt., to Boston for 100 pounds is 22 cents or from White River Junction lo cents. If by carload from Burling ton, 10 cents, or 12 cents from White River Junction. These are very reasonable rates, and yet the cost of the freight by lake and canal from Chicago to New York would be hardly more for two bushels of corn or wheat than for one from any place in Vermont to Boston, though ordv for 200 miles instead of 1000." Gov. Dillingham, in reply to a re quest for his opinion on the force bill said there is no need of such legisla tion as the Lodge bill contemplates in the State of Vermont, and that he has not given the measure sufficient attention to feel warranted in predict ing its effect upon elfctioim in other States. Census of Lamoille County. Through thecourtesy of Supervisor Howe we have received the approxi mate census returns, showing the population of Lamoille County, which we give herewith : 1S90 lssn 400 lir.o !I.U liS2 171". 14!).- 20!! ism; r.47 ik;i G;iin Loss 1M r.o 01 Kt Kl Itelvidere Cum bridge, Eden Kluiore Hyde Turk Johnson Morristown Stowe Waterville AVoleott, 571 ll.'.IO st.t "i'.IH l.m nr.ii 2415 1SS!) r7'.) 115S) ao 31 (S :t2 128.U 120H4 519 30.0 Gain over 1880, 150. An analysis of these returns show that Belvidere and Waterville, towns dependent for their prosperity largely upon the lumbering interests, have made gains the former nearly 25 per cent. Morristown, by reason of the large increase in population of the village of Morrisville, shows an increase of 15 tier cent. Every other town shows an absolute loss. The losses, however, in the aggregate are less than the gains, leaving Lamoille one of the six counties in the State which show a net gain over 1880. Morristown has especial reason to congratulate herself upon this fact; for outside of the 31(5 gain in her population, the net balance is on the wroner side. We know of no village in Northern Vermont where growth has been more substantial than in Morrisville, and but few in which the per cent of gain lias been larger, and from present indications her growth seems likely to continue. It should lie borne in mind that the growth of the village is more than 316 which the census shows the town to have gained, for we have no reason to be lieve that the agricultural districts remote from the village do not show the same proportional loss in Morris town that is shown m the other ag ricultural districts of the county. There is little doubt that the increase in the village iroper has been fully 33 per cent in the last decade. It is probably true that with the exception of Eden, Elmore and possi bly Stowe, the other villages in the county have all shown a greater or less increase. But tlieyoung men from the hillsides have graduated from the tarms and gone to make the blood and brain of the wonderfully thrifty cities of the West. It is true that the best element of Kansas City, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Denver, and other cities of the trans-Mississippi region have no lietter personal element of pro gress, enterprise and push than the bovs whom we have sent from these districts which show a loss of popu lation. The country has not lost them, although we have, and if they go forth and become the lever of pro gress elsewhere who dares say it is not all for theliest? We wish it might le otherwise, and we have great faith that the time is coming, and that not in the distant future, when the tide will again set eastward. Lamoille County Savings Bank. The Lamoille Co. Savings Bank and Trust Co. shows a growth that is not only constant and steady but much beyond the expectations of its friends. It draws its deposits almost exclusively from Lamoille Co., in fact of it entire deposits jire from the towns of Hyde Park, Morristown, Johnson, Wolcott and Stowe, thus showing the high estimation in which the institution is held by those best acquainted with its management. It is conducted as a Lamoille Co. insti tution and none of the residents of that County have ever applied to it in vain for any loan which it could le gally make ami which the directors deemed safe and conservative. It is needless to say that not one dollar has lieen lost, nor has the institution a single dollar in doubtful paper. Its investments are entirely within this State. No loans, except of the most conservative kind, are made upon the strength of individual names, nor is any loan made upon mortgage se curity without a full knowledge on the part of one or more of the direct ors as to the value of the property loaned upon, either from personal ex amination or previous acquaintance with the property. The following shows the growth of the institution from the month in which the bank opened, January, 1889, up to the present time: Januarv, 1KS9 February. IMS!)....

John Boyle O'Reilly, the poet and editor of the Boston 'Pilot, died sud denly of heart failure at his summer residence in Hull, Mass., Sunday. Mr. O'Reilly had been a sufferer from an affection of the heart for several years, and for some time past had I wen afflicted with insomnia.

That to the people of Barton Landing who have so kindly opened to us their houses and public buildiiifis, and in so many ways administered to our comfort and happiness by their generous hospitality and uniform kindness, we express our hearty thanks mid warm regards. The Orleans County Sum mer School closed at 3.30 Friday p. in., Aug. 8, and in every sense of the word was a success. The whole number of stu dents enrolled was 144 ; average at tendance was 100. There was a bal ance of $58.05 in the treasury. There was a good amount of hard work done by both pupils and teachers and the schools of the coming year ought to show a good degree of improve ment. To all the teachers was ex tended a vote of thanks. At the closi of Prmcinal Ldward l.onant s in struction in civics, English and peda gogics Thursday noon, Mr. B. C.

Thurs day evening the Barton Landing cor net band gave the 3d and last prom enade concert for the Summer School and Brown's hall was filled to over flowing. Photographer L. M. Clement suc ceeded in making three excellent photographs of the school which were eagerly secured as souvenirs of the pleasant term. The corps of instruct ors includes Principal Edward ton ant of Randolph, and two of his com petent assistants. Misses Gates and Putnam ; Principal Chas Putney of North Troy; Miss Emma Fairchild of Derbv; Mr. E. H. Davis and Miss Boyd, of Chelsea. Mass., and Mrs. A. K. Biaisdell, supervisor of drawing in Wachita, Kansas, and Miss Kate Healey of Morrisville, Vt., Supervis ors Goodhue, Booth. Redmond, Has selton and Taylor gave suggestive talks on methods. Principal B. C. Day a very practical talk on relation of common schools to higher schools, and many others including Judge O. 11. Austin gave short talks, and lec tures were given by Hon. L. H. Thompson of Irasburg, President G. A. Gates of Grinnell College, Iowa, Hon. Geo. II. Blake, Barton Monitor, Principal Chas. Putney, St. Johns- bury, and last but bv no means least Prof. G. II. Perkins of U. V. M. Bur lington, which was a revelation and inspiration of what might be done in the line of natural history by each one. Assessment Insurance. The State's Attorney at St. Johns- bury issued body writs Wednesday of last week for the organizers ot vari ous fraternal insurance orders on the ground that they were violating the State law by soliciting insurance without a license from the Secretary of State. The agent of the " Order of the Solid Rock was called home by the Massachusetts Supreme Lodge before the writ was served. Wednes day the organizer ot the "Order of Unity." . wuu found tvnd lie wu put under jirreKt. J list ice Nichols rendered his decision in the case of the State vs. George S. Hall, which is quite a blow to the Massachusetts' assessment insurance companies, who are trying to obtain a foot-hold in Vermont. Air. Hall was trying to establish a lodge of the " Order of Unity," a secret fraternal and benefit society, chartered in Massachusetts last June. The order gives certificates of $1,000 maturing in seven years, with sick" benefits at the rateof $20 a week, thecertifieates costing members about $300. The organizer was interrupted in his pro ceedings by a body writ, issued by the State s Attorney, on the ground that he was a foreign insurance agent and soliciting business without a license from the Secretary of State. At the trial the question of law involved was whether the respondent was soliciting insurance or simply canvassing for a fraternal society of the Knights of Pythias or any similar order. Jus tice Nichols ruled that he was engag ed in insurance business, and bound him over to the higher court under $150 bonds which were furnished. Justice Nichols' decision has been widely commented on through the State; and the Burlington Free Press expresses the general verdict when it says: J'The St. Johnsbury justice merits the thanks of an organiza tion-ridden public, and we trust that his action will liear fruit in stopping the further increase ot clubs and lodges which promise, upon the con tribution of a comparatively insig nificant amount in assessments, the payment at the end of a term varying irom one to ten years, ot a large en downient." Result of the Census In Vermont. An erroneous impression of the re sult in this State of thecensus of 1 890, not authorized by anything given out by the Supervisor, was drawn from the publication ot the popula tion of the larger rowns, in many of which greater gains had lieen niade than in any previous census decade. It was announced in some of the city payers that Vermont had made a substantial increase in population. The official count will be likely to show the same population in round thousands as in 1880. The gain in Burlington, Rutland, Barre, Brattleboro and in all the large towns and villages generally, is offset by the loss in the agricultur al districts. In no other decade of the census has the loss in the farming towns been so great. About 58 towns will show a gain of population and about 184 towns a loss. Of the gaming towns Addison county has three, Bennington county two, Cale donia county five. Chittenden county five, Essex county eight. Franklin county five, Grand Isle county two, Lamoille county three, Orange coun ty two, Orleans county five, Rutland county seven, Washington county six, Windham county three, Windsor county two. Six counties gain and eight counties lose; the loss in one, however, Orleans, is so small that it, may possibly disappear in theoflicial count. The gain is nearly all in four counties Washington, Rutland, Es sex and Chittenden Washington county making t he largest gain, and the others in the following order: Rutland, Chittenden, and Essex. The counties suffering the heaviest losses are Orange and Windsor on the east side of the mountains, and Addison and Bennington on the west side. Orange and Windsor counties each lose from 3000 to 4000, The losses are almost entirely in the agri cultural districts, there being hardly any large villages that do not show at least a small gain.

Burlington Clipper The Drift from the Farms. The movement of the young people from the farms to the towns and cities is a modern social symptom which is popularly believed to be pe culiar to New England and the older Eastern states. But the new census is fast demonstrating that the same drift is already apparent in the re gion west of the Alleghany moun tains. In Indiana, for instance, Grant county, which lies midway be tween Fort Wayne and Indianapolis, has had in ten years a gain of 7987 in population. But when the figures are examined it appears that 0409 of this increase has taken place in the towns, while many of the rural dis tricts actually exhibit a decrease. "Ah, the iniquitous protective tariff !" our free trade friends will say. "How it oppresses and impoverishes the farmers." But this is only another instance in which the tree-traders generalize from incomplete data. As a matter of fact, as the census also demonstrates, the productiveness of thetarm lands in Grant county has doubled in a. decade, and their value has trebled. The editor of the lead ing paper in the county says that more money .than ever is being spent in roads and drains and other public improvements, and that since 1870 100,000 acres of land have been brought under cultivation. This is the editor's explanation of the fact that the farm holdings tend to be come larger: "Now there are scores of farmers who each own a section and more of highly cultivated land, which former ly supported a colony, but is now farmed by a single family with hired help. Improved farm machinery, stumpless fields and better drainage, railroad and convenience of markets, reduce expenses and increase produc tion. The ambitious farmer of small means emigrates, to some western state where land-is cheaper. It is said that there is a Grant county farmer in every county in Kansas." The prosperous Indiana farmers' sons, instead offking to the land cities, where theypicy life is less mo notonous and easier. The experience of this typical county of Indiana and the situation in Ohio is said to be much the s.ij"e should help to disabuse people of the notion that the drift to the eiry from the farm and the decline in the number of farm holdings is a condition to be found only in New England. In the course of time there may come a. reaction, and the tide may set the other way. Young men mav seek the free life of the farm as a relief from the stifling air and crowding and fierce compe tition of the cities. But the present tendency is the exact opposite of that, and it is not peculiar to this state, or this section, or this coun try. It is a tendency which is felt on the oNier sideof the sea, and is about equally marked in protective France and Germany and tree trade Britain. Boston Journal. Farmers Must Be Business Men, The farmer who would make a practical success of farming must re gard it as just as much of a business as the buying and selling of dry goods and groceries; and to his fail ure to do so must beattributed some of the agricultural failures that have discouraged many farmers in recent years. In old times the farmer kept his set of books the same as the merchant; but for reasons difficult to under stand, this very business-like and wise practice has been almost wholly abandoned, so that the average far mcould not tell the exact cost of p.-oduction of any crops. Let the farmerenter in his book the labor, manure and every other out lay made on each individual piece of land, the cost ot seed, the expense of gathering the crop and that of mar keting it , and he may then ascertain at any time, by reference to his books, precisely what has been his profit or loss on each lot of land and each crop produced; and at the end of each sea son he may study the lessons of his books and from thein learn wherein he has failed and succeeded, and t herefrom make his calculations for profitable production in the future. The farmer must he a businessman if he would succeed; nndthe sooner he realizes that brain is as essential as muscle in agriculture, the sooner will his vocation be raised to the level of profitable industries. Herald. An Estimate of Base Ball, The New York Tribune has a high ly commendatory as well as a just view of the attractions of baseball. " Long observation," it says, "of nu merous popular amusements, has convinced us that scarcely any other possesses so many excellent features and so few that are to be regretted. The game is played under sanitary conditions; it is as free as any public competition can be from the "defile ment of gambling, and it has no ot!ter harmful accessories.

Kiiei ou News and Citizcn : As a native of Vermont, a resident of Florida and a regular reader of the News am( i rizex I wi.sh to ro Icst aaiiiHt your editorial article on Florida I'liospliate hands, as niisleadin"; and injuri ous to one of the fairest regions of the earth. You say 1 hat ' Tin- discovery of phosphate in various partsof Florida lias hecii made the occasion ol a yicat deal ol lallc. not tosa.v lira, nliout (he immense advantage to real estate which this iliscovery would fj'h'e to the state." 1. should rather nay that many state ments of facts have I wen made reardine; the incalculable wealth which has been added to the State bylhis discovery. lovernment fiol oc,istH and seienlilie experts anile in sayine; that t lie phosphate, deposits are of enormous extent anil practically iuexhaastablc a per fect, mine of wealth. Your correspondent, (it would interest many Floi-iihins to know his name) tates that, " as for Florida everything is dead and for my part. 1 think it always will be so. ex cept for some of t lie la re,e hotels that will fill up ill the winter with visitors." This will be news indeed to the many whose business sa gacity has never before been questioned who are investing millions of dollars in the State. Last year a larger number of individual land sales w ere made, and a larger number of peo ple went, to Florida than ever before during the same period. I nfort unately, Florida is as yet unknown even to its own people. Its increase in popu lation between 1S70 and 18S0 was 100 per cent greater than Vermont. It has an area of cultivable land greater than that of all the New Fiifiland States. It will produce a great er variety of products than any other State. It is the most perfect sanitarium in the world. Few Vermonters I think would be adverse to spending; their winters in Florida. The President of the Florida State agricul tural college Prof. F. L. Kern, a distinguish ed scholar who recently went to Florida from the North, says: " Including all deaths from yellow fever, which once in ten ortifteen years may find its way into some seaport town when imported from some tropical country, and ail deaths of consumptives and others from the North, who come almost invariably when too late for any earthly power to save them even then the rate of mortality in Florida is less than iu any other State in the Union." After making a tour of Florida during the w inter of 1SSO. (ieneral Grant, wrote the fol lowing letter to the Philadelphia Iwltor: " I am very much pleased with Florida. It has a great future before it. A peninsular extend ing out from a great country like ours, af fording an unlimited demand for all the vari ous tropical productions it can supply, there is scarcely any limit to its resources. It is capable of supplying; all the oranges, lemons, pine-apple, and other tropical fruits used in the t'nited States; one hundred million dol lars of sugar now imported, material for rope, bagging, coarsematting. etc. It hasan area greater than New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut combined, with deposits of fertilizers under and above it sufficient for many generations. It only wants people and enterprise, both of w hich it is rapidly obtain ing. Florida to-day affords the best opening ill the world tor young men of small means and great industry." The Editress of one of Florida's leading newspapers has very recently written: ' Flor ida is the coming Kt Dorado of our nation's adventure. This is no visionary forecast, and not many years will have passed before it shall have been demonstrated. The combi nation of advantages possessed by Florida for the development of great wealth is not equalled by any other State in the I'nion. In climate, phosphate and timber wealth, in navigable rivers, in a long sea coast, in healthfulness and in every other advantage that could be asked tor, nntureseems to have done her best for this -Southland.' The wealth in phosphate alone is beyond esti mate, and, in fact itsextcnt is not yet dream ed of. With the rapid progress now being made in the development of these resources, the State is entering upon a period of pros perity greater than has ever been known. At the close of the most disastrous war in the world's history, the State was in a deplorable condition beyond the power of words to de scribe. So rapid has been the advancement during the last eight or ten years that the business world is now seeking information about, Florida's growth and her resources. Capitalists in Europe and America are com ing to Florida as a held for in vestment. The cry is no longer 'go West,' but 'go South. voting man, go South.' The manufacture of fertilizers is t o be our leading industry. Thud many millions of dollars which formerly w ent North for fertilizers will be kept at home. Every portion of the State is at work. Her people, are awakening to a spirit of energy and enterprise never before known. Her vast resources are being opened up, and their de velopment is adding to the prosperity of ev ery section, and her manifold attractions are bringing a steady stream of wealth to this fair land, (.rent fortunes are going to be made in Florida during the next few years. Men who make judicious investments now will find themselves rapidly growing rich. Villages will grow into towns, and towns into cities, based on the most solid foundation The utilization of the almost unlimited stores ol phosphate is only a questiou of time. If you investigate you will invest. No one can study t he situa tion of Florida to-day without being amazed at the future prospects. No language can adequately describe, the possi bilities of this section nor exaggerate the wonderful period of prosperity upon which we are just now entering." The climate of Florida has. probably, no equul in the world. It has inspired the pens of travelers, health-seekers and pleasure tonrists, and is a never failing source of de light anil enjoyment to all dwellers and so journers in that fair ami sunny land. The enjoyment of i loriila s climate is free alike to those who can live on an assured income and to those who must labor for their bread. There is a land that, is never chilled by snow in winter, nor parched by drouth in summer, nor swept by cyclones and blizzards n land robed in perpetual verdure, where fruits and flowers may be gathered each month in the year a land bathed in sunshine nnd fanned by pure sea breezes which are for the healing of the nations. Such is Florida, and within her bounds millions may live in happiness and prosperity. Akthur V. Jackson. The Merits of Wood Ashes. In an essay read before the Ameri can Horticultural .Society at the t-leveland (Ohio) meeting a few days ago, Mr. J. X. Smith gave an account of the means employed for the pre vention of the evil effects of a pro longed drought. Among these means a free use of wood ashes was named as one of the simplest and most effec tive, Itecently Mr, Smith has made a, comparative test of the effects of wood ashes and barnyard manure on a scale large enough to show results that are more than "indication," Two acres lying side by side were treated exactly alike in every respect except that one was manured with leached wood ashes and the other with stable manure, .Mr. Smith re ports the results of the trial to the Prairie partner as follows: The acre fertilized with ashes j-ield-ed fifty-one bushels the most, and if there was any difference in quality it was in favor of those that had the ashes. Now, the fair inference would be that the ashes were much the best manure for potatoes. Let. us look a little further, The last of May and the first half of .June were wet and cold, and so far the two acres seemed to keep about even. After June lo the weather became very dry and there was little rain upon the plants until they were ripe, cry soon after the ground began to get dry it could be plainly seen that those manured from theeompost heap were suffering from want of rain, while those man ured with ashes were growing very rapidly. This continued until they were ripe, The simple fact is, potatoes or strawberries manured with ashes stand drought that would be ruinous to crops fertilized with any manure I have ever tried. To this fact I at tribute the failure of the compost heap acre to hold its own with the acre upon which ashes were used. I have tried the experiment many times, always with precisely the saine result, provided we had a dry season during the growth of the crop, I do hot know but the rule will hold good with all farm and garden crops, but with the above there is no doubt. 1 do not underate ashes as manure. have used them in preference to any other fertilizer 1 could get for pota toes many years. Popular darrfen The execution of Kemmler by elec tricity occurred last week. It re quired two or three shocks of elec tricity to kill him, and there is a di versity of opinion as to whether this mode of disposing of murderers is more human than the method of hanging.

In Morrisville Aug !), IS'.IO, passed on to a higher state of existence Mrs. l.vdia T liomas, aged )1 years, widow of the late David S. Thomas, who preceded her tothe better home fifteen years. She had lived in Morristown sixty-five years, coming here with her hus band when a greater part of the town w as an unbroken forest. They settled on the farm now owned by Luther Adams, giving Hie road running through the farm tl .line of Uan- dolph road, in honor of thetown from whence they had removed. That road, now running through fruitful tarms and dotted liv pleas ant homes, was then u dense forest, with only a foot path and marked trees to guide the oc casional traveler on his lonely way. There, with neighbors one mile and a half on either side of them, they made their home, where in dustry soon drove back the forest, and iu its place rose up fruitful fields, surrounding a home where love made all burdens light and labor a pleasure. Six children were born to them, four of whom are now living to bless the memory of kind and loving parents. For the last, twenty-seven years she, and her hns Jiand until he died, lived with her son, A.I). Thomas, at Morrisville, from whose home her mortal remains were caaried by her lov ing children.

" Where can I do this and have my money absolutely safe " let us give you some facts. The Lamoille County Savings Bank and Trust Co. of Hvde i'ark is an institution run on toe following principles : 1st. Xot a dollar is loaned without the personal knowledge of some one of the Hoard of Directors mat tue loan is safe beyond question. 2d. It is run as a home tinsitution Every dollar is loaned in Lamoille and adjacent counties, and every worthy en terprise in the vicinity or the towns whence the deposits of the Hank come. is fostered and encouraged in preference to other investments, so tar as it can ue done with absolute safety. Sd. Under no circumstances is a dol lar invested in any western morgage or other out-of-the-State security. We might perhaps pay our depositors one half of one per cent, per annum more interest by incurring a little additonal risk, if no loss should come, but we believe there is to-day a "long felt want" in Vermont for a saving3 institu tion which will loan its funds at home. It is needed that Vermont may not become impoverished. It is needed for the building up and fostering home in stitutions. Vermont towns will not boom without money any more than towns beyond the Mississippi and in Alabama. It is needed for the greater safety of the savings of widows and or phans as well as of all those who look rather to the absolute security of the principal than to high rates of interest. With no disparagement to our neighbors who prefer to occupy western fields we t ffer to the depositing public the La moille County Savings Hank and Trust Co. as an institution organized to meet the demand for a strictly home investment Savings Bank. That such a demand ex ists, and that the people are ready to be stow their confidence and encourage ment upon such an institution, is evi denced by the fact that the aggregate of the small deposits alone iu this bank not counting any in excess of $1000 were at the end of the first six months of its business. $57,196.00, a record without parallel, we believe, in the history of Vermont Savings Hanks. 4th. Under no circumstances does this Hank take over ( pur cent. Itwould not, knowingly, make an investment which would pay over C per cent. The safest class of loans and securities will command money at 6 per cent. The Hank pays the State a tax of six-tenths of 1 per cent, on deposits in lieu of all taxes to the depositors. It must then be evident that 4 per cent, per annum is all that the Hank can safely pay. This rate it will pay. It is guaranteed and rests on no contingency. Interest will be compounded semi-annually if not withdrawn Tie Lamoille County Savings au& and.
