For its information we will state that tne net profit to the town for the past year was $780.42 and not "about a thousand dollars." We would also add that this is a falling off of $331. 81 from the previous year. The entertainment last Wednesday evening by the Starrs we must witn-"-""ouT hesitating pronounce a grand sell from first to last, silly m t he ex treme and with scarcely a point ot merit. The Grand Army I'ost deeply regret that they have been so taken in and that such a tortuous enter tainment was thrust on an unsus pecting audience as coming under their auspices. J. P. Clement, familiarly known w all as "Joe," for many years a resi dent here, died at his home at two o'clock last Thursday morning alter a brief illness with pneumonia com bined with a brain trouble. ine funeral services were held at tne house at two o'clock Saturday after noon, Rev. P. B. Fisk, officiating. The business places were nearly a i closed out of resiteet and the attend ance was large. Theentertainment at the town hall on Salnrdav evening, announced on the bills as a "spurring match, was a regular Bowery dive show, wit li i an audience boisterous and regardless of goo order as can be imagined, and' the presence of a few women seemed not to improve the character of the occasion. The whole thing was far from the sort of entertain ment that should be countenanced by our village fathers.

She was in apparent good nealth in the morning and suggested to her husband that thev drive down to J ohnson to see her "sister's hus band, Isathan McFarland, who was w poor health. The doctor thought it was too cold to venture out, but his w ife thinking it was their duty to go, they finally went. They found Mr. Mcl arland in much better health than they expected and spent several hours there, taking dinner with them, alter which they started for home, the wind was blowing pretty hard and when near the Catholic cemetery a gust took the doctor's hat off. He told his wife to hold the horse and he went after it, it taking him several minutes to recover it. When he re turned to the sleigh, Mrs. Thompson said she had a terrible pain in her side and urged her husband to drive rapidly to some house. The first house they come to, the Whiting house on the hill, they found no one at home and so hurried on to the I atch farm, occupied by Mr. Sargent. Before reaching there the doctor saw that his wife's lips were blue and her head fell over and he at once realized that she was dead. At Mr. Sargent's she was carried in, and everything was done to revive her, but death had claimed her. She had succumbed to heart disease. The bodv was taken to their home at Morristown Corners, where the funeral was held this ( Wednesday) afternoon. The re mains will beburiedatRivtland. Mrs. Thompson never appeared in better health than on that day. She greatly enjoyed her visit and expressed pleas ure at finding her brother-in-law so much better, and was indeed happy. She leaves besides her husbandtwo children, Dr. Eugene Thompson, a very successful physician.at Rutland, and a daughter Hattie, who lived at home. Mrs. Thompson was a con sistent member ol the Universalist church, a woman of rare attainments and one of whom everybody speaks highly. The family have the deepest sympathy of all in this sudden bereavement. Prof. Cilley of Jericho, Chittenden county school supervisor, writes Rev. P. B. Fisk as follows: My Dear Sir: Allow me to express to you my liitrh ap preciation of your lei-ture entitled, " What a boy costs," delivered before the Chittenden county teachers' institute at Essex Junction on the evening of .Ian 21,1891. The lecture was highly entertaining and instructive, deep in thought, beautiful in expression, eloquent and forcible in utterance. Such was the opin ion of all who listened to you on that oc casion, with earnest and undivided attention from the beginning to the close. That lecture must do good wherever given, and I hope it may often be repeated. Very truly yours, J. S. L'illev. The question naturally arises, why do we not have this lecture at home? The many friends and acquaint ances of James C.Clement of Chicago, will leai-n with much rpgret of his death in that city February 6th. The deceased was the husband of Miss Diana Chamberlin of Johnson, also brother of W. R. Clement of Mor risville and Charles Clement of Rut land. The following extract is from the Chicago EvennakPost : James ('. Clemenjj Vi ie wholesale cloth ing firm of Clemenit .-' 4 & Co., died at his residence. G9 VarriV-jmp, this morning at 10. HO o'clock, after an illness of some dura tion, llr. Clement was well known on the West side, wh-re he has lived for some years. and was a prominent factor in the building up of thnt portion of the city. He was born in Martlanrt. Vt.. m lflia. ana came to i ni- cago in 18l7 and has since resided here. He was one of the organizers of the old clothing firm of Clement, Morton & Co., afterward changed to Clement. Bane & Co., and retain ed his interest in the firm, although he re tired from active business in 18 1 8, owing to failing health. He leaves a widow and two daughters, Anue and Belle.

Mrs. John Child has gone to Crafts bury, where she will probably reside in the future with her brother, Nelson Rand, Esq. School in the Reed district closed Friday. It was taught by Fred Bick nell of Johnson and was a very suc cessful term. Judge Kenfield was confined to the house several days last week with an attack of neuralgia, but is now out again and able toattend to business. Gov.

Mudgett and his family from South Dakota, are visiting his mother and sister at J. S. Waite's, ami his brother, George Mudgett, in Hyde Park, after an absence of 20 years. The laws of 1890 are now being distributed by the secretary of state to the towns, through the several county clerks, of whom the towns are to procure their supply of copies as provided by law. C. F. Randall has leased F. R. Child's house, directly opposite the American House site, and will open it in a few days for the occommoda tion of guests. Although not as roomy as.the American, it has several good sleeping rooms, and the cuisine, for which the American was noted will be of the same excellent charac ter. Hyde Park will have a new hotel. Before the sun went down the day the American house burned $5,000 was subscribed towards this object. The sum has since been greatly in creased, which leaves no doubt what ever that a new hotel will rise Phoenix like from the ashes of the old one. A meeting of the subscribers is to be held Friday and we shall give our readers the result of the conference in our next. CENTREVILLE.

NOTES FROM THE FIRE. It looks pretty vacant around the ruins. Judge Smith of Morristown, did valiant service. A considerable quantity of coal in the cellar of the ruins is still smok ing. The telephones were very handy in calling aid from the neighboring towns. The hot coffee furnished by the la dies was greatly appreciated by the thirsty workers. "Uncle Adna" had the post-office pretty thoroughly disemboweled, and was ready to toss out the mail bag at a moment's notice. Brown holds forth at the American barns, which luckily escaped the con flagration, and he is able to continue his livery business at the old stand. An item of no small sum was the burning of some fifty cords of dry wood in the shed. A large quantity ot green wood was also considerably damaged. The Wolcott people showed their friendliness by coming down in large numbers, bringing their engine with them, and aiding Morrisville in load ing their machine on to the cars. C. A. Knight and wife, who were boarders at the American, lost most of their clothing and a lot of furniture. They had $300 insurance which will probably cover about half of their loss. Three ot the hotel girls Mrs. Henry Hall, Etta Grimes and Ida Durivage lost about all of their clothing in the fire. A subscription paper has been circulated in their behalf and about $33 subscribed. Herbert Hyde's heroic work on the bank building is worthy of especial mention. He climbed on to the roof and remained on the hot slate until all danger was past, pouring water on to the heated roof. Dr. Randall and family are greatly indebted to the people, both at home and abroad, for the great aid ex tended to them at the burning of their hotel. They request us to ex tend thanks to all for the aid ren dered. L. P. Jackson, tonsorial artist, who has had his shop in the American House for ten years, is now located in the Kelley block, where he will be jjlensed to see his old patrons and all others. Remember the barber and give him a lift, as he loses by the fire a large traveling patronage. The proprietors . of the American receive fb,uu insurance, ot winch $2,000 is on furniture and provis ions. A careful estimate of the amount paid out for furniture Sc. reaches the sum of about $4,500 From this it will beseen that the loss in this direction is about $2,500 The proprietors estimate their total loss at a jout ;),000. We desire to express our appreciation of the prompt and satisfactory manner in which the insurance on the American House, placed bv H. M. McFarland has been adjusted; ;,700 placed by the Vermont Mutual I'lne- nix of Hnrtford and the Springfield was ad- liisted within 24 hours of the time of the tire. We heartily commend tne agency or u. M, Mcr arland to the insuring public. David Kakdali. C. F. Randall, Hyde Park, Vt Feb. 21. 1891. NOHTH HYDE PARK. E. W.

Mrs. Thompson of Morristown corners, sister ot Mrs. Nathan McFarland, died last Sunday, while riding with Mr. Thompson be tween Hyde Park nnd Johnson Should a modern Rip Van Winkle from out, west visit us he would hardly know the old Dr. Chamberlain place, so completely meta morphosed by repairs and changes, by Diana Clement of Chicago. The parents of pupils in the intermediate grade especially, and all others as near as possible, equally regret that Miss. Allen de clines a 'call" for the coming term. The peril of having a superior teacher is, that you cant, keep them. Mrs. Supt. Andrews of Vergennes. is spend ing a few days among her friends in this vil lage. Scores in the state can testily to her painstaking devotion to the inmates of the Reform school, and would be pleased if they knew of the abundant welcome she received in her old home. The Farmer's League will meet at Town Hall Friday, Feb. 27, at 1:80 p.m. Topics of general interest to farmers will be discuss ed. We hope nil thoseinterested in the Farm er's League will be present. Com. When N. P. Banks, in the fifties, seemed to be drawing dangerously near the upper rungs of the political ladder, a rival Demo cratic office-seeker flung at him this pen and ink grenade: "He never said a wise thing, nor did a foolish one." This epigram in its Brst half is a misfit for the lending personage named below, so like a tailor who fixes a coat too long in the neck and too short in the sleeves, will change it. "He never launched an ill-timed witticism, nor one with a barb or a sting in it, nor said a foolish thing." Reinforced by their daughter, Miss Louise, Mr. and Mrs. Henri' Stevens gave a reception last Friday evening, which was a twin to the one given three weeks before by Mr. and Mrs. B. S. Fullington. In the flexible imaginations of the "old timers" was any one there except the 110, who left at eleven nnder beavers and bonnets? Was there other sounds than those of music, laughter and re partee? Was there an indescribable somt thing in all the well-filled rooms, more inspir ing than song or wit, or spoken eloquence. " rarer than odors .sweet from roses blown"? Were there "stars and harmonies" felt, seen and heard by all of Henry's gray or bald con temporaries? Let us see. Thirty years ago, when the host drove his four-horse cracker and candy prairie schoonerinto forty villages in northern Vermont, was any boy denied the felicity of driving four-in-hand from store to Btore? Were not kind words and rare smiles thrown in to boot? From those days to these days not a few dealers in Mr. S.'s cir cuit, on the first trip from "Jerusalem to Jericho," from various causes, lost all, and left the highway with capping wounds. To such, in car and street, hotel and office, in tactful ways, has not Mr. Stevens given the " oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness" ? Has not he been to those and burdened others, a progressive new edition of the " Good Samar itan"? So Friday night, at the reception, there were praises bestowed that did not find voice; unseen forms and faces, twice 110. friends of the host, "fastened by hooks of steel." Were others reminded of the words of Starr King, "There are things more potent than material forces?" STOWE. Horatio Calkins is quite sick with pneumo nia. Lyman Churchill is very poorly from heart trouble. Oscar Alger will move to the Will Smith place this week. There is more than the usual amount of Bickness about town.

Cook remains in a declining condi tion, with but little chance of recovery. Jerome Ayer and wife will soon move to the house of J. F. Wade, on the Branch. The prefix Mrs. should have appeared be fore the name of John Fairbanks in last week's item. Miss Swift, of Seattle, Washington, a Bister of Mr. C. B. Swift, is visiting with her aunt, Mrs. Geo. Williams. The great depth of snow this winter hns prevented sporting and no furs are to be seen about the Btreets. Dr. H. D. Martin, the famous occulist. will be at Brick Hotel, Monday, March 2nd, to remain until March uth. The annual March meeting will be held on Tuesday next with no unusual excitement in prospect, unless it is there mude. The next Farmers' meeting will be held at the town hull, on Saturday afternoon of this week, at 1 o clock, to discuss phosphates and the best means of burying them. The death of Mr. Joseph Miller, aged 67, occurred on Friday, He died very suddenly from some spinal trouble. The funeral ser vices were held on Sunday at 2 o clock p. in , Rev. Mr. Emery officiating. On Tuesday of next week, town meeting day, a good substantial dinner can be pre cured at the vestry of the M. K, church for the small sum of 15 cents. The ladies are taking this method to raise a little money for necessaries, AH who are hungry can eome and be filled. The death of Mrs. Horatio Calkins, aged 70 years, residing at Moscow, resulted from pneumonia on r rulay morning. Uriel funer al services were heid early Sunday morning, Hev. Mr. Kmery officiating.
