The illustrated circular recently is sued by the Village Improvement As sociation is receiving favorable com ment and attracting attention throughout the state. Many of the newspapers in the state have a good word for it. The increase of the salary of the postmaster in this place from $ 1200 to 1300 is another indication of the growth and prosperity of our village. There are but 12 other places in the state where the salary has been increased. The object of the coming special village meeting is to see if the village can and will make contract with the town, for the use of town hall, for all purposes, leasing it for a given -amonir: and for a given time, which will make it possible for the corpora tion to advance money now, for the contemplated improvements, and in after time, re-em burse the treasury by rentals from the hall for differenet purposes. It is hoped that instead pf building in the rear, the present bHildiuff may be moved back forty feet and a more modern front, and an inclined floor, etc., be built.

Mc- Farland I"- The lecture on "Village Improve ments" last Wednesday.evening by is.u. rsortnrop was wortnyof amuch larger audience than it received. It was replete with good suggestions and practical hints. The speaker re- lerredto many villages that had been increased in population and wealth through the good work of the vil lage improvement society. He spoke very complimentary or our 'village, its excellent location and beautiful surroundings. We hope good re sults will come from this lecture, but we should all keep this fact in mind tnat to beautily our village every body must take a hand in it. Not only should the property owners do all in their power to improve their premises, but those who rent houses or tenements should take pride in keeping the grounds about them neat and attractive. Throwing pa pers and other rubbish in the streets should also cease. When all become interested in this matter then we may expect good results. Centbeville.

The long continued search for the body will be remembered by all. And now it comes to the lot of a workman about ten miles distant to accidentally find the remains of the unfortunate lad. John Driscoll, while mowing near the river bank, on Judge Andrews farm, below Johnson, on Monday momfng, was attracted by an un pleasant odor and upon investiga tion found the remains in a badly decomposed condition. Mr. Heayey received word by telephone and im mediately went to Johnson, fully identifving the remains by the cloth insr they were left in Johnson until afternoon when they were interred m the Catholic cemetery. Morrisville undoubtedly has an re department of which it may well be croud It has been brought up to a jive institution, thoroughly equipped and well organized and a credit to fa town. The department is com Losed of four companies, with the rious appliances needed in each, and yet with one thing lacking to make the whole affair on a line with tTe departments of other towns of HYDE PARK. Shepard Family at Town Hall next Monday evening. Slayton Bros, have purchased a handsome black horse for use about their mill. Miss Chris Howieson, of Chippewa Falls, Wis., is visiting at Frank Slayton's. C. A. Knight and wife are spending a few days with relatives at Stan- stead, P. Q.

The vacancy in office of President of the Lamoille County National Bank, caused by the resignation of C. S. Noyes, has been filled by the election of C. S, Page; H. M. McFar land has been elected Vice-President. Apropos to village improvements the suggestion is made that a paint ed box be placed at or near the post office, in which people may throw wrappers, envelopes, etc. This would be much better than throwing them about the street. The Board of Railroad Commis sioners are on an oflicinl visit over the S. J. & L. C. road. They stopped at the Phieuix Monday night. In addition to the board were Col. Fol som of Lyndonville, E. II.

The assistants have not been hired yet, but will probably be the same as last year Miss Dora Fairbanks and Miss Lucy Sawyer. In his lecture the other night Mr. Northrop alluded to the too frequent custom of neglecting " God's Acre," and in a kindly way suggested that with a very little labor our cemetery might be kept neat. His reference to the'straightening up of a few stones that have fallen over ought to be acted upon promptly. Hyde Park as a town has not a very large number of covered bridges within its borders. What few there are however might be greatly im proved by white-washing the interi or and iorbidding posting patent medicine and other cheap signs. St. Johnsbury leads oft" In this direction and the bridge in Itardwick village was also thus renovated before its centennial, making a decided im provement. Let this town take the lead in this direction in this county. A laughable joke was perpefrated upon one of the visitors from this place on the recent "Press" excur sion. The afternoon of the first day m snent in St. Johnsbury and among other places visited was the Athenaeum. One of the party was acquainted with thelibrarian and in troduced another to herasthe " Min ister Plenipotentiary to the Sand-: wich Islands."

SCHOOL, REPORT OP NO. SIX. Thinking a report of District No. 6, of Johnson, would interest and essentially bene fit the people throughout this county, I give the following statistics of expenses of schools taught during the spring of 1891. Two teachers were engaged one to teach the posterity in the studies prescribed by law for a term of twelve weeks, for which ser vice she received f75.00; the other to in struct the adults in "Practical Economy" aa long as they chose to pursue that course. The first lesson was recited before Justice Strong at Johnson; but as the technicali ties regarding school warnings, proper man ner ot conducting school meetings, district clerk's records, election and duties of offi cers, were not explicit to all, even after sev eral rehearsals at the school-house of said district, it was decided to review Economy (?) The interview, which was recited before Chief Justice Ross, left a lasting impression on all opponents of the true principles of "Practical Economy." . Verdict. $81.12. Costs, $37.84; lawyers' fees, f62.50. Total, 181.4. This decision requires a tax of 90c. on the Grand List, exclusive of expenses for the other school. A resident. in pros pect. Mrs. B. E.

While Miss Elite Wheeler, was coming to her home she found a purse in the road containing $15, and returned it to the owner, which was her father, David Wheeler. County Politics. Mr. Eoitor: The recent animated canvass for the Scna torship brings to mind the fact that Wolcott had the position in 1878, while Cambridge and Johnson held it so recently as 1882 and 1884. One other thoughtoccurs: Cambridge has held the position only three times in the past 40 or 50 years, (if our n'mory serve) and then, only by accideiiW Hon. Elisha Bentley was elected " under-bolt," as against Henry Stowell, Esq., 30 or more years ago. Hon. and Rev. Edwin Wheelock was elected in 1876, and nominated by acclamation, while others in the east were striving for the position. The others following in succession in 1878 and 1880: Mr. Parker of Wolcott, and Mr. Gleed of Morristown. Hon. J. Bv- ron Page was elected from Cambridge in 1882. and was nominated while the canvass " was heated " for other parties. Cambridge has ever been well treated when representative material has been produced. In 18711 the Senatorsliip was held Uy Kdwin Wheelock : AtoAwtLu.uk JJA J. 11. I'ltm. autl Judge of Probate, W. U. Griswold. The honors were bestowed upon our "old con servative town. So, all in all, we are content. Until 1870 conventions were held for the nomination of County officers by the old-system, denomi nated "mass conventions," with great ex- pensetotnetownsoutside of theLounty seat. Often 50to 150 men from the different towns assembled and held the caucus in loca tions given to the several delegates! This system was abandoned the day of the strife between Richard F. Parker and Philip K. bleed, which resulted in the nomination of Mr. Wheelock, as before stated. Since that date the Republicans have elected delegates at home under the "caucus-svstem." with the basis of three times the number desig- imieu ior state conventions. Little by little, we have changed the na ture oi our caucus syslem until it is now merely a machine run on a predetermined plan. For instance, should a candidate de sire some position on the County ticket he and his friends arrange the program before hand and everything works just like clock- worK tuus tree oallot and fair count, which doctrine as a party we hold to only in name, as it is a "misnomer," in fact. It would not greatly surprise old-fashioned people to see a revolution in this respect, and "ma chine politics" a thing of the past. So might it be 1 Cambridge, Vt,, July 4, 1892. CADY'S FALLS.

The heavens during the latter part of the night are of especial interest to astronomers just now. Last fall Ve nus and Jupiter made a splendid spectacle in the western sky just after sunset. Now Jupiter appears in the East soon after midnight, and Venus will soon be on duty as morn ing star. Still more striking is the appearance of Mars, the earth's next door neighbor in going outward irom the sun. It makes its appear ance about 10 p. m., and through the rest of the night is a most bril liant object. No one can mistake this planet on account of its firey red color. Mars is now nearer the earth than it has been since 1877. when Professor Hall discovered its moons. It will be in opposition on August 4. Astronomers are watch ing this planet closely in the hope that their observations mar throw some light upon the so-called "ca nals discovered by Shiaparelli, aa well as upon its other phenomena. The amateur astronomer has an ex cellent opportunity lijre-Jor making observations and expei imeuts.and it will profit even those who have little interest in astronomy to remain up late one night for the sake of paying their respects to a neighbor that is doin; its best to make a call upon the earth.
