Another success has been scored in this season's lecture course. Col. G. W. Bain in his lecture on Saturday evening surpassed many if not all others, seems to be the verdict of ev ery one who listened to his portrayal of "Traits of Human Character." Col. Bain has a keen sense of the hu morous, and throws in a wave here and there, convulsing his hearers with laughter, while in the next moment all will be touched with his masterly expression of sentiment which comes with such tenderness of thought. His lecture to young men in the Congre gational church on Sunday evening was listened to with deepest interest, by an audience which packed the house, His Jeoture was an earnest, telling appeal for sobriety, and was a grand temperance lecture.

The funeral services were held from the Congregational church Tuesday afternoon. The tribute to her worth by her pastor, illustrated by the at tendence in a body of the Eastern jftar XyOdge, her Spday-school cotss, and many pf the Christian Endeavor society, as well as the large congre gation of neighbors and friends, the profusion of flowers, the casket in uhfte and the sweet faces of the young' mother with her t)al,P MPRH her arm. within It, constituted a scene very unusual and impressive, and an object lesson not to be for gotten. The following from the Farmer's Advocate is of local interest: There is a farm in MoFriavill village thai, was once tilled by the t'oossuck Indians, and afterwards owned by Luke Poland, that five years a o was an abandoned place, with a fair house and old shattered barn on it. The present owner has repaired the barn, cut some brush, done some ditching with some other improvements, has it stocked with res ist red sheep, and blooded hens, supplied the premises and public with good water. The barn has the farm's name on it, also the Ver mont ensipn inscribed thereon. Therailroad company have erected a ftood fence along their route. In our state there have heen jftifta on priyate dwellings but this s the first coat of arm to my knowledge. Give nip opinion of its use. Perfectly proper. It is only the symbol of a patriotic sentiment in this country. Ed. ACADEMY NOTES. For the past few days the students have taken advantage of the skating, which was found on Whitney's Pond.

('harles Crane, whose death has be'eii expected for several 'days past, died Saturday morning last, aged 73 years. Thd funeral was held Monday a.iternoon, airs, bmma lUiul ofhcia ting'. Mr. Crane was born' at Griston, England, ijr 8l8, arij was the third ciuiu iu u lauiiiy oi six, au nut, on whom are stjll Hying. 'JI, is fa ther and fatnily came tg'meripo; in 1$ and iQcapeu iq innaaq,, where t,i,Py re mained a short time and then re moved to Vermont. The subject of tiiis came nere jrom v estneld in !. and has resided here ever since. He engaged extensively in shoe manufac turing, employing many men therein his shop standing on the grounds in front of where the academr buildin now stands. When the manufactur ing of shoes b.V machinery, came into existence, Miv Crane went out of that and ente.-ed into the mercantile busi ness, in which, with the exception o a few years, he continued until his death. He w;is $ thorough rHyde Parker aiul Bh'pwed his 'faith 'bv the interest ne took in its welfare. He was public-spirited and to the extent of his ability aided in all enterprises ihirty-three years ago he was One of the five who erected the American House, and when that building wa burned last February was one of the hrst tq take stftcfc in, the flew hotel enterprise. He built the house on Church street, now occupied by Levi ;ome, ana aisotneiarge double bnc house on Prospect avenue. About thirty-five yeura ago he erected the lame store so long occupied by him He was Selectman during the time the present town house was erected tf believe this was the only town ofhVe ot importance he ever held. Mr, Cralne married Elvira W. Hitchcock of Westfield in 1845, who with two sonk. Edward C. and C. II.. survive him A young daughter died in 1858. Mr. Crane was a man of strong indi viduality and on many matters of ngli it and wrong disagreed with good men but we believe the general ver- dicWwill be that taken all in all he wasa man of good impulses and gooA intentions, llequiescat in pace.

Xo claim was made that the property had not paid its taxes through the stockholders, who reside in Morristown, Wolcott and Hyde Park, but the listers of Hyde Park claim that it should all be set in list in Hyde Park, the same as though the lumber companv was an individ ual. The court ruled that ia, ts. opinion the listers were correct and that although it evidently involved double taxation of the lumber com pany the company was in this respect in no worse condition than real estate. To this rulingthedefendantexcepted. The court also held that the town had not proceeded legally in the col lection of this tax. and so directed a verdict for the defendant.
