MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK. Thursday, January 12, 1893. L. H. LEWIS. - EDITOR. Equals the Slaughter cf a Battle. The synopsis of the statistics of railways in the United States for the year ending June 30, 1891, has just been issued by the Inter-State Com merce Commission and contains much valuable and interesting in formation. The part devoted to the number of lives lost and persons in jured during the year by reason of accidents of one kind and another shows that it is something appalling. Seventy thousand and twenty-nine were killed outright, whiie the num ber of injured was 33,881. This is equal to the slaughter of a terrible battle, and if concentrated in a single event would produce a profound sensation. Of the killed, 2,660, and of the injured, 26,140 were employes of railroads, and in many cases the causes of death and injury were of an unavoidable kind. In coupling and uncoupling cars 415 lives were lost and 9,431 persons injured; and these casualties would be greatly re duced in number by the general loption of automatic couplers. Js'early 600 persons were killed and over 8,000 injured by falling from cars and engines; and a large pro portion of such accidents are due to the lack of protection against falling from the top of freight cars. The greater number of other deaths and injuries was from the collision of trains, which could be rendered less frequent by the general use of the " block " system of signals. Of pas senger the largest number were killed and injured in collisions and derail ments and at highway crossings. As these are spoken of as "passen gers," they probably do not include persons killed and injured who were not riding upon the cars. The grade crossing is one of the most deadly contrivances connected with the rail road system of the country. It is rath er depressing to learn that the killing and maiming of people on railroads is on the increase, not only absolute ly but relatively to the mileage of railroads and to the number of per sons carried and employed. The controversy going on between the Rutland Herald and the Hard wick Gazette and the St. Johnsbury Republican, regarding free school books is decidedly interesting. The two latter papers strongly ad vocate the "idea" while the He; nhl, usually on the right 6ide, is en-dt-avoring to show that the times jtre not yet ripe for free books. It is struggling manfully, but it appears to us that it has an up-hill job on its h;inds. The people want free text books and it was only by a sleight-of-imnd movement that the bilf failed to becomealaw at therecent session. It will get through next time. That highly intellectual sheet, one lialf of which is printed at Cam bridge, got around last week to give a synopsis -of court business three weeks after court had adjourned. As the News axd Citizen gave a full report of court proceedings at the time court was in session, this is rather stale. But then "Rube" has had a little court business of his own to attend to of late and so could not eive ordinary court matters atten tion. The St. Johnsbury Caledonian is not very enthusiastic about street railroads for Vermont towns, ex pressing itself as of the opinion that " the Vermont town is yet to be dis covered where there is any immediate pi-ospect of such an institution being a practical or paying thing." And all this in spite of the " hurrah boys, whoop-er-up " tone of the Republican, which believes St. Johnsbury's great est need just now is a streat railroad. Another instance of Vermont pluck is that shown in the life of John P. Squire, the great Boston pork dealer, who died there last Sunday, aged 73, worth $3,000,000. He was born in Weathersfield, this State, and went to Boston in 1838 with a ten-dollar bill in his pocket. In order to save thi.- capital he walked the entire dis tance. mam The Montpelier Watchman came out last week in an enlarged form having added a column to ekch page, making it one of the largest and handsomest state papers. The W.itchman is a progressive paper in all its branches, and under the man agement of Mr. Ropes has become ou of the leading papers in the state. Secretary of the Navy Tracy, one of the most popula r cabinet officers, Kays modestly that he will return to his profession of the law to earn his liv ingafter March 4th. If hecannotget his bread and butter that way, then, says he, "I guess I can write for the hcrse papers and make a living in that way." Dea. Stephen V. White, whose fail ure startled Wall street a little over a year ago, began the new year with out owing a cent, having mailed checks to all his creditors Friday, Dec. 30. His failure was caused by connection with a big corner in corn He made an arrangement with his creditors and began to build up his fortune. When he failed the amount of ha indebtedness was nearly $1,- 000,000. To Dor ble-Track The Central. It is said that the enormous and con tinued increasing businpss of the Cen tral Vermont railroad company has brought President Smith to the con clusion that another line must be built trora St. Albans to Essex Junc tion, making a double-track road between those places. From Essex Junction to Bellows Falls the Cen tral Vermont is practically a double track road, thelines via White River Junction and Rutland merging to together at the latter village. The road from Essex Junction to St. Al bans i frequently blockaded with freight cars and trains, nearly all the freight which goes over the Central and Rutland divisions coming over this track. Wichita, Kan., has a cooking club whose members are taught seven ways to make potato salad and ten ways to make custard. But can any ODe eat them after they are made? The Movement for Good Roads. One of the good signs of this year 1893 is that the year will see the de velopment of an intelligent, deter mined and well organized movement in behalf of good roads. It is not to be expected that a great deal will be ac complished in the way of constructive work, in the first year of this move nt -it, but its character is such that the public attention will be purely aroused, and a strong public senti ment created. Last October, in Chi cago, the national league for good roads was formed. Its plan corn templates the formation of state leagues In every state, and local leagues in every county or school dis trict. Gov. Fuller has interested him self actively in the movement, a Ver mont league was formed during the session of our legislature. Maine has since followed suit, a strong senti ment in favor of road reform has been at work in New York and New Jersey for two or three years, and the movement is pretty sure to be come general in all the older north ern states before the end of the year. The six broad, general purposes which the league has in view are: 1. To combine, as far as practica ble the efforts of all persons now en gaged in the work of road reform. 2. To awaken interest in the sub ject among the people at large. 3. To receive, publish and discuss any well-considered plans for local, state, or national action or legisla tion. 4 To urge the passage by the house of representatives of the sen ate's bill for a national highway commission of inquiry. 5. To aid in providing for a prop er road exhibit and for free instruc tion in road-making at the World's Fair in Chicago. 6. To establish the league upon the broadest possible basis through out the country, so that its influence may be of weight in any direction in which it may be thrown. The work of the league will pro ceed on the general basis that, re markable as has been the progress of the country in a thousand ways dur ing the last half century, in the mat ter of road-making we are away be hind the times. Compared with Eng land, Germany and France we are not much better than barbarians, in respect to our roads in country dis tricts. This state of things is due more than otherwise to ignorance, and to lack of appreciation of the difference, on economic grounds, be tween good roads and poor roads. Circulars and pamphlets of practical information will be prepared for dis tribution, and a league paper or magazine will be published as soon ai subscriptions or other funds for its support are in hand. Ic is suggested, as one of the surest and best ways of reachingthe farmers that men familiar with the subject and competent to talk upon it, be sent to address the farmers' institutes in the various states. The impor tance of compelling teams which do heavy work on country roads to have wide tires, proportionate to the work, will be urged as one of the primary features of the reform. It is a significant fact that railr-.ad men fire among the first to take hold of movement. This is because it is recognized that good highways are the best feeders to the railroad sys tem. All hail to road reformers. Their work is needed, and there is room enough for us all to serve in their ranks. Brattleboro Phoenix. Where the Good Die Old. The mortuary record of the town of Ben nington, Vt., for 1892 presents some interesting facts. There were eighty one deaths, three less than in 1891. The prevalence of the grip last winter was particularly fatal to the very old, as is evidenced by the death-rate at this extreme of life. There are in the list nineteen who are more than severity, nine more than eighty, and two more than ninety years of age. The sexes are divided as follows: males, 47; females, 34. Consump tion had ten victims, heart disease eight, pneumonia nine, typhoid fever seven and Bright's disease eight. A large number of deaths, especially of the old, was due to a gradual failure of the vital powers. Excluding the deaths of the eleven infants, the average of each person at death was nearly sixty-two years, a remarkable average, and it is believed that few towns can make so good a showing. As the population of the town of Bennington is about 8,000, the mor tuary record shows that there has been only a fraction more than ten deaths in a thouand. Kempen, a town in Holland on the lower Rhine, the birthplace of Thomas A. Kempis, is a favorite residence of people with small in comes. The imagination of these Dutchmen must bo as limited as their incomes, judging from the droll stories that are told of them. At one time a fire broke out, and much damage was done because the en gines were out of repair. The coun cil met, and after much argument it was voted that on the eve ureced ing every fire the town officers should carefully examine theengines, pumps, etc. One of the greatest profits of the town was the toll exacted at the gates. The council wished to increase the income, and instead of increasing the toll it voted to double the num ber of gates. This same council also ordered the sun-dial to be taken from the court-house common and placed under cover, where it should be protected from the weather. But of all the queer things that are told of Kempen and its people nothing is so absurd as this: Grass grew ou the top of a very high tower, and the only way these droll Dutchmen could think of to jret it off was to hoist a cow up and let her eat it. Harper's Young People. Have you ever noticed how fre quently fairly intelligent people mis use words? It seems to be a natural failing of some persons, like stam mering or squinting. Not long ago a young man who had just returned from Europe, was exhibiting to his friends a collection he had made of remarkably fine photographs. He had been a close observer and kept up a running explanation on the views. He came to the tomb of Juliet, and, after giving an account of it said, "Juliet's esophagus is full of cards." This would be a degree or two worse for Juliet than cold poison, to say nothing of its utter impossibility at this late date. He wound up with a glowing talk on Venice and the "Dratic" sea. A pious old lady of my acquaintance happened in at a Christian Endeavor meeting, which is always held before the regular night church service. She was much impressed with the young people's earnestness, and es pecially pleased with the singing. She said, "I do love to hear 'em sing! They sing with such venom!" Chicago Journal.

ALL WOMEN WERE ES VIOL'S OP 11 EH FOR MANY YEAI5S. NOW THEY KNOW ALL ABOUT IT AND FOLLOW HER EXAM PLE. A lady well-known in our social circles has for years been the envy and admiration of all thp ladies hereabouts, on account of tiie won derful preservation of her health and beauty, and particularly because of her clear and dazzling compi.-xion. She has been many times mged by her acquaintances and friends to dis close the secret of her nmrvelously youthful appearance. Last evening she grew confidential to a little knot of friends, among whom the writer was present, and her secret is now a secret no longer. " Whv it is realy no secret at all," she said; "a perfect complexion de pends upon just two things, strong nerves and a good digestion. Most women are excessively ner vous, weak and languid, and as a result their complexions are sallow and their faces pinched, drawn and wrinkled. Female difficulties always aggravate the trouble. Few women have perfect digestion. Now ob viously, if women wish sound health and good complexion they must get their nerves st rong, their digestion good and have no female weakness. Disorders of the stomach and liver, with the consequent clogging of the svstem, is very trying to the com plexion. The best thing in the world to overcome these ditficultes is Dr. Greene's Neivura blood and nerve remedy for it is a wonderful strengh ener of weak n rves, and gives a vig orous appetite and perfect digestion. It should be ti.ed by every woman who is at all w ik or run down. Be sides, it is a vegetable remedy, pure and harmless."' FRANCES LYTLE. The above is born out by another no less popular lady, Mrs. Mary Frances Lytle, who resides at 2 Hun ter Alley, Rochester, N. Y. 7n speak ing upon the same subject sh ? said : "I was very pale and delicate and had no color whatever. I also had a very bad leucorrlxea all the time and suffered great pain at my periods. "I am now well, thanks to Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy. My lace is plump and cheeks are red, and my complexion pure. " When 1 began the use of this most excellent remedy I only weigh ed 81 pounds, now I weigh 115 pounds and am still gaining. Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy is a wonderful medicine. I have not had any trouble since I began taking it." This great remedy is the discovery of the eminent and well-known physi cian, Dr. Greene, of 34 Temple Flace, Boston, Mass. He gives consulta tion free of charge, and those who cannot visit him at his office are privileged to write him all about their cases and thus get his advice by mail free. It is certainly advisable for all to use his remarkable remedy, which can be procured at any drug store. The success of Chamberla in's Cough Remedy is effecting a speedy cure of colds, croup and whoopingcough has brought it into great demand. Messrs. Pontius & Son, of Cameron, Ohio, say that it has gained a repu tation second to none in that vicinity. Jas. M. Queen, of Johnston, W. Va., Bays it is the best he ever used. B. F. Jones, druggist, Winona, Miss., says : "Chamberlain's Cough Reme dy is perfectly reliable. 1 have al ways warranted it and it never failed to give the most perfect satisfac tion." 50 cent bottles for sale by A.

Ollice, 80 Park Place, N.Y. o o ooooo 00.0 MRS. MARY A REMARKA3LE ROBBERY. A Daring Theft of a Pair of Diamond Kuriinss on a Public Street. As bold a highway robbery as ever occurred in the city was committed on Euclid avenue early last evening. It in doubtful if the annals of the police can Ehow a case parallel to it. A party of fonr la;lit;.s were walking on Euclid ave nuo on the way hoina from a shopping expedition. They were Mrs. H. A. Grif fin. Mrs. F. A. Arter, Miss Griffin and MisaArter. At 5:30 o'clock they were iu front of the residence of Colonel John Hay, on Euclid avenue, opposite Huron street. It was dark, but many persona were passing on their way home. The ladie3 were interested in conversation and gave no attention to the stealthy ap proach behind them of a tall, spare young man, attired in a light colored overcoat. He stepped behind Mrs. Arter and placed one hand on each side of her head. He pressed them agi tnst either cheek and then turned and LVd. His ac tion was so unexpected and the ladies so startled that they failed for a moment to understand it. Then Mrs. Arter raised her hands to her head and learned that she had been robbed of her diamond ear rings. "Oh. dear, my earrings ara gone!" she exclaimed. A cry for assistance was at once raised by all of the ladies. Calls were made for the police. A large crowd gathered in a few moments, but too late to be of serv ice. The thief after securing his plun der started at a rapid gait along the driveway between the residences of Colo nel Hay and General James J. Tracy. A man left his buggy to chare him, but the fugitive easily eluded him in the darkness. He had probably ascertained the lay of the land in advance and knew exactly the beet course to pursue. The highwayman gained p issession of the earrings by opening the clasps and slipping them out of the ears. Mrs. Arter escaped injury and only learned the absence of the earrings when she in stinctively reached for them and found them gone. Each of them contained a large solitaire diamond, and she prized them highly. The value of the gems is about $400. "It is the only case of the kind of which I have ever heard," said Captain Humphrey, of the detectives. "There are a few cases in which earrings have been torn from the ears, but I do not be lieve that any other highwayman has had the nerve to open the clasps and remove tho earrings just as the owner would have done. Everything conspired in fa vor of the thief. When Mrs. Arter felt the man's hands pressed ngainst her cheeks from behind, she supposed that it was her husband, and that-he had over taken her and proposed to give her a sur prise. The first thought of the other ladies in the party was that Mrs. Arter was receiving a singular greeting from some relative whom they did not know. Of course it was all over in a moment, and then they discovered their mistake." Cleveland Leader. A Charitable Clearing House. It lias come to be fully recognized that the less red tape there is about a chari table scheme the quicker and most effi ciently are the two parties the needy and the helper brought together. Tho Needlework guild is a superb example of simple benevolence, and a pl.-.n recently proposed by a London man to aid the destitute of that city may be the incep tion of another equally vast and unob structed philanthropy. It is proposed that every person who is willing to undertake to contribute to the need of some, needy family during the coming winter shall send his or her name in to a committee. This committee acts simrly as a clear ing house, and the plan is known as the clearing house plan, forwarding the name to the clergyman or recognized head of some district where help is need ed, who in return responds with the ad dress of the family to be assisted. That is all. the gifts going directly from the reliever to tint relieved 'without inter mediaries or circumlocution. Her Point of View in New York Times. Keeping Cp with the Prucesslon. "I was a bearer at a funeral in Peeks kill." said Chauncey M. Depew. "The procession to the cemetery, which is three miles out of town, had been mov ing in the usual orderly and proper way, when suddenly we were surprised at the accelerated motion of the carriage. Pretty soon it came near upsetting. Looking out we found that we had run through the bars into a plowed field and were going furiously across it, making for a ditch. The driver meanwhile was standing up and plying the whip with both hands. I cried, 'Sam. are your horses running away?' 'No, sir,' was the reply. 'Well, what are you driving us across lots for? 'Well, sir, the horses attached to the hearse have run away, and up in this country it is the cnstoin for the bearers to follow the hearse." New York World. Pity for the Profession.

Water for the Fair. Owing to the difficulty of suppljing .Chicago with pure drinking water a company called the Waukesha Hygenia company has had a pipe line constructed from the springs at Waukesha, 104 miles distant, to the city, and the company has extended its pipe line for twenty-five miles through the grounds and build ings of the World's fair. The water will be dispensed at over 200 fountains and booths. Tho ownership of the spring, which is said to yield 500,000 gallons; daily, is obviously most valuable. ' During his connection with The Revue do Deux Mondes, the late orientalist, Renan, published an interesting essay on the myth of Prometheus, which he traced to East Indian legend, where the inven tion of fire is ascribed to the spite of a cunning demon. "Is it quite certain," asks M. Renan, "that the ancients regarded the doom of the inventive Titan as undeserved? If a debating club of scholars should dis cuss the question whether fire has, on the whole, been a benefit to the human ra-ce it might surprise the audience how strong a case could be made out on the negative side." The progress of civilization is of course inseparable from the use of fire. But the problem whether the phenomenon of combustion, in its various manifesta tions, has been a blessing rather than a curse is a very different question, and might be impartially answered as to the interest of individuals and single centuries, yes; as to mankind and the result of a series of centuries, no.

Boston, Jan. 7. Just at this time of the year the greenhouse vegetables inside the tnarket-house are very attractive feature. Suc'i has heen the advance of the art of cultivating garden truck under gln.ss In the winter season that at the present time it is possible to obtain almost any of the fine garden vegetables in the mid W'nter season as at the height of the sum mer vegetable season. Whs it not for the severe climatic con ditions in the outer world a visitor pass ing through Quincy market ci uld ensily imagine himself transported to a mid summer day. Lettuce of uncommonly large size and attractive appearance, rad ishes with their bright red roots, dande lions fresh from the fields as it were, green peas of fine size and quality from sunny Florida, fresh spinach from Nor folk, crisp white celery from the hie idl ing pits around Boston. All these, side by side with the finely perfected Califor nia fruit, combine to make a tempting display indeed. II utter. The market is looking better, the large an.ount of stocks held in cold storage have now been largely cleaned tip and trade is now depending on fresh made stock, which, although not plenty, seem inadquate to the demand. Extra fresh creamery brings 27 to !a) cent. No. 1 ice house stock S3 to 24 cents. Northern dairy HO to i cents; good dairy 25 t 2U cents. Vegetables. The extreme cold weather of the past week has somewhat shortened the general supply, but prices have not materially in creased.

Cauliflower, $1 to $1.50 a dozen heads. Onions, $2.73 to $3 a barrel. Pars ley, 50 to 75 cents a bushel. Squash, $1.75 for Marrow to 2 to $2.50 for li iy State, Hubbards aud Hydreds. Greenhouse to matoes, 25 to 30 cents a pound. Kutahaga turnips, $1.25 to $2.50 a barrel. The apple trade is quietly awaiting for an advance to unload stock now in the stores. Prices have not advanced but ap pear to be firmer tliau a week ago. Fruit. Pears have become somewhat scarce, and those few which are offering are quickly tiiken by tne hotels aud fine restaurants at good prices. These range from $3 50 to $5 a bushel for Anjous; (4 to $5 a bushel for Boscs. Cranberries are firmly held at $5 to $7 a barrel for light; $8 to $10 for dark for 1(X) quart barrels. Florida lemons and oranges are increasing iu supply and the demand is also with an upward tendency. Prices remain steady at $2 50 to $3 50 for lemons, aud $2 50 to $3 for oranges.
