An Evening with Holmes.
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 winter work has been
very successful in all departments,
with an unusual attendance. After
two weeks vacation the spring terra
will begin on Wednesday, Mar. 9th.
The program of the entertainment
was as follows :
Declamation The Boys. Harry H. Hardy
Recitation The Steamboat.
Edna I. Smalley

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.

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 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
