Fred Livingstone is hoping to again make a market for the maple sugar product of this vicinity. With as good a sugar season as last year, this will mean a large amount of ready money in the farmer's pockets. With no settled home for the work, with room large enough to do all the work at one place, Mr. Livingstone will not be able to handle as much as he otherwise could. He handled twen ty thousand gallons of last year's crop.

The town hall filled to over-flowing on Tuesday evening, testified to the interest our people have in theacade my and its students. The evening with Oliver Wendell Holmes, as par ticipated in by the junior members, marked the close of the winter term of school and the end of twenty-four of the thirty-six weeks of the school year. The numbers upon the pro gram including one song by chorus, were all selected from Holmes' works, and the large audienca was furnished a very enjoyable evening's entertain ment; two selections by the full chorus, with Prof. Whipple as organ ist and director; a finely rendered solo by Miss IlaNiles, a double Quar tett and a selection by the Keogynist Quartett, which was giyen an encore, made up the musical part of the pro gram.

The Lecture Association Below is given a summary of the financial work done by the Lecture Association during the five seasons it has been running. Total amount received $2157.99; have paid out for talent 1720.0; for other expen ses $ 285.06, leaving in the hands of the treasurer $ 241. Jd : I think it safe to say that the entertain ments given have been a source of pleasure and profit to every one who nas attenaea them, and no one would like the idea of their being discontinued, lhey nave Deen tne means of improving the character of amuse ments in our village. Before the organiza tion of the association it was difficult to get fair sized audience to attend a lecture: a concert would attract a large house, but a minstrel would would draw a crowd; that this is changed now is plaiuly seen. While we may thank each other for the. united in terest that has made it possible to hear these courses, much credit is due to a few, through whose untiring effort and self-denial, at times it has been possible to reach the very satis factory conclusion as is above much appar ent. It must be the wish ot an wno attenaea the Bourses thus far, that the association now made a branch of the work of the Library Association be s. stained, and as has been the rule in the past, each new course better than the one proceeding, make earn one in the future a little better than the one before. So may we each one stand by and help all we can to keeD our lecture course. Everi'thing eoes to indicate a more successful course another season, tnun any we nave naa tnus far. As a means of social enjoyment, what can be better? As un educator, who can es timate the amount of good they have done, and will do? iota auditor. HYDE PARK. Gov. Page is in New York and Bos ton the present week. A. J. Blanehard anu his men are filling the creamery ice houses. The entertainment by Miss Emma Wetherell, the elocutionist, Monday and Tuesday evenings, drew good audiences. All were well pleased. II. L. Fairbanks has completed his school at rerkinsville. As usual "Herbert" has given excellent satis faction, and leaves many friends in that district. The total amount paid out for the poor trie past year is iuj.", airainst o4G,14 the year previous. The overseer, however, has had more business this year. School commences next Monday. It is expected that there will ue classes formed beginning physical geography, history and geography of V ermont, ana aigeora. Bernie, the eight-year-old son of Alvah Jones, died last Wednesday. The funeral was held at the house on Friday afternoon, Bev. L. layior officiating. The remains were taken to the Hooper cemetery for burial. Trip mail train was delayed 2 hours Monday morning at Johnson. The acpident; it Waluen knocked the wires endways ana nanny woum uuti leave Johnson until orders came, which had to ue seni arouuu vm White River Junction. Attendants at church last Sunday had the pleasure ot hearing some very fine music by Messrs. V. II. Crane and T. H. Page, who accom- inied the choir with nute anu cor net It is hopea iuai lihb aumuuu to the already excellent choir will be permanent. An interesting meeting oi me ive publicans of this town was held last Saturday evening. The organization of the club was completed and a gen eral talk on political matters fol i..,,i Tho Huh intends to hold fre- mutt infra notice of Which Will be e-iven through these columns. t Mr Tavlor will preach next Snn.lav morning on "Job." People freDerally wonder how this character, : v,r. rr,(Ut of all his afflictions and misfortunes maintained such remark- ol.ioTintipnce. and prooamy many win avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing a sermon concerning mm vv-oMr. TJricham and H.

Her funeral will occur Tuesday." The profit to the town from the sale of liquor the past year is $397. 41. The report made last year, which covered a period of about 14 months showed a profit of $969.48. It will be seen that the profits for the year just closed are much less pro portionately, notwithstanding the grip. But then it is said that this town does not patronize its own agency as exclusively as some other towns do. The athletic portion of the board ers at the Hotel Phoenix have invest ed in a set of boxing gloves and fre quently indulge in the Sullivanistic art. The station agent and the dom inee have had one or two bouts, in which it is said the s. a. was knocked out. The'landlord threatens, if this artificial means of increasing appetite is continued, to raise the price of board, as he thinks these young men already have sufficient appetite with out resorting to this sort of exercise. THE COMING TOWN MEETING. The interest in town matt9rs has livened up considerably since our last issue. All sorts of rumors are prev alent and '.'there is blood on the moon." The indications point to a lively tussel regarding several of the offices, particularly Selectmen. The opponents of Mr. Strong, chairman of the board, say there must be a change, and the most prominent cause they set forth is that last year, after the town had voted to return to the old system of highway survey ors, he urged she rest of the board to appoint but three, instead of one for every district, thereby practically continuing the road commissioner system. For this reason they say he must go. On the other hand there are those who say Mr. Strong has served the town faithfully, that he has always had the best interests of the town at heart and that the oc casion demands his retention on the board. When asked recently if he was a candidate Mr. Strong said that he "never was a candidate, that he was not a seeker for office." Yet we think that if the town should again elect him he would not refuse to serve. It is said that the name of W. G. Bassett will be presented for the position. If he could be prevailed upon to take the office there is no doubt that he would prove a most excellent official. No. Hyde Park was not satisfied with being left with out a member of the board last year, and it is said that they will insist upon one this year. Amongthenames suggested we hear those of George Allen and Jos. Foss. If the people in that part of the town wish either of these men, or any other good man, we do not think the rest of the town will object. The other member will prob ably be from the east end. Town Clerk Wood has given general satis faction and will have no opposition. We think the same is true regarding Treasurer Strong, although there are some who think that F. It. Child was removed last year " witnout just cause or provocation," and they would not object to having him re instated. For Collector, Capt. Waite appears to have no opposition. We do not know as he desires a re-election, but we do know he is ever ready to "go where duty calls," and if the call should be again extended to him he would not turn a deaf ear to it. For Overseer of the Poor, II. C. Lan pher will again be honored with the position. For Listers, in addition to the present members, the names of C II. Bliss, E. G. Sherwin, H. D. W. Doty an C. B. Swift are men tioned. If there is to be a change any of these men would be found fully competent. Judge Page, who has for many years acted as the cus todian of the Surplus Fund, will de cline a re-election. As this is one of the most important trusts in the town great care should be taken in the selection of the official. The best man available should be given charge of this fund. We have heard but lit tle concerning the various other of fices, but undoubtedly from now on there .will be many "suggestions" made for all of the offices on the list. Every tax-payer should endeavor to be present at the meeting next Tues day. It is the tax-payer who has to foot the bills incurred by the public servants, and if an officer has been derelict in his duties, he should be re tired. On the other hand if an offi cial has been tried and found true and faithful, if he can be prevailed unon to continue in office he should be kept there. Come out to the meeting and exercise your duty as a citizen. centerville. School closed Friday. Rev. E. W. West and wife have returned to their home in Lincoln. Evelyn Whitcomb from Morrisville called on friends in this place the past week. The young people had a candy pull up to Bert Bachum's last Thursday evening. A good time was enjoyed by all.
