MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK, Thursday, May 18. 1893. L. H. LEWIS, - EDITOR. Vermont's Day. Wednesday of lust week was Ver mont's day at the great fair at Chi cago, and the little structure which stands on the boulevard between the Maine and Massachusetts buildings, representing Vermont, was presented to the World's Columbian Commis sion shortly after noon. Although Vermont has one of the smallest buildings on the grounds, she has managed to lead off in dedicating her headquarters. The ceremony is re ported as having been exceedingly interesting and the addresses elo quent, the following report of which we take from the Free Press : Upward of 500 people made up principally of press excursionists and former Vermonters, now prominent in Chicago, witnessed the dedicatory ceremony. Cols. Jewett of Swanton, E. L. Bates of Bennington, and J. P. Fos ter of Derby Line, of Gov. Fuller's staff, were present in full uniform and assisted his excellency iu receiv ing visitors before and after the exer cises. In the absence of Col. A. F. Walker, lion. J. L. Martin of Brattleboro, ex Spenker of the House of Representa tives, presided. After a selection by an orchestra, Mr. Martin said that the people of Vermont have always believed that women had wrought great things and had great influence, and announced that the committee had (-elected a man to offer prayer whose whole life had been more or les3 moulded by Vermont women. He then introduced Rev. Simon Gil bert, who invoked the Divine blessing. Mr. Martin stated that he had also been assigned to give the Vermont building to the World's Fair commis sion. He said that the World's Fair lifts the curtain that has wrapped the ages in its veiled mystery. The marvelous changes wrought by the skill of men reveals to us far more than Columbus could possibly have anticipated in his frail ship tossed by the billows of the deep, more than Moses fancied in the land of promise, more than the most skilled and learned of this generation supposed had been accomplished by the handi work of man. Grand indeed is the contrast of the present with the past. Imagine the condition of pioneers of our beloved State who assembled in their first convention representing the commit tees of safety, a little over a century and a quarter ago. They could read ily perceive their poverty and destitu tion in their contest "for the New Hampshire grants with the authori ties of New York under the king, in tensified by the shadows and stern reality of the Revolution. But they could hardly realize that their sacri fice in united action with their fellow countrvmen would give birth to one of the most prosperous and powerful nations on the earth. It would have been sublime if they could have foreseen that the valleys of Vermont adorned by her moun tains would grow up statesmen, ju rists and soldiers who would stand in the front rank of all ages of the world in sagacity, learning and cournge. Other states may well feel proud of the beauty and grand ner of their buildings erected hereon. Vermont makes no criticism and offers no apologies. This building which we open to-day and present to the authorities of the World's Fair is neat, substantial and sensible, but without imitation or unnecessary ex pense and adornment. It has always been characteristic of Vermont to copy from no one. She reflects her light by the burning of her own lamp. During the revo lution Vermont maintained an inde pendent government unlike and more independent than any of the colonies. She coined money, issued bills of credit and treasury notes which were promptly redeemed in specie, estab lished postal routes and rates, ap pointed a postmaster-general, adopt ed the common law and established her courts of justice, and, when she represented the first star added to the old flag in 1791, she was a little giant of the ereater giants of the fed eral Union. How fitting it is that she should be represented by this unique and classi cal structure amid these grander edi fices representing as they do the other and more populous states of the nation. Vermont yields to but few in the products of her tilled acreage. Her organs, scales, granite, marble, and maple sngar command the markets of the world. She is the first to send her members of the Press Association here and 6he has always been one of the first in the councils of the nation. The moral, intellectual, and physical development of our men and women of every period of our history chal lenge the whole earth for superiors. If all the heroes of ourdead were here they would put a tongue in every stone of this building that would chime the praises of Vermont in the grandest music of the republic. Mr. Martin then made the formal tender of the building to the Exposi tion commission and was followed by Director-General Davis, who accepted it on behalf of the commission. Gov. Fuller made an address. The exer cises closed with the orator of the day, Hon. William P. Dillingham. We are in receipt of a very artistic pamphlet of sixty-four pages, issued by the State Board of Agriculture, on " Vermont, a glimpe of its scenery and industries." It is edited by Vic tor I. Spear, and presents in a yery interesting manner many of the points of attraction that Vermont has, its industries, its educational interests, its agriculture, its quarries, and its scenery. It is profusely il lustrated by cuts, and is an improve ment over anything ever before is sued by the Board. It is from the press of the Argus and Patriot, of Montpelier, and is a very unique and tasty job. O The appointmentof Rev. L. 0. Sher burne,"as Presiding Elder of the St. Albans District, is a fitting recogni tion of his faithful service, and is most gratifying to his many friends, not ODly in the members of his own church, but among all religious de nominations in St. Albans, who learned to appreciate his sincerity and manly interest in all that per tained to the moral and ma terial welfare of the community, dur ing his former residence amongthem. Mr. Sherburn was born in Achons Windham County, in 1853, is a gradu ate of the Vermont Methodist Semi nary, and the Theological t-chool of Boston University, and has been a member of the Vermont Conference since 1877. He is the youngest of the Presiding Elders in New England, is a sincere and devoted pastor, an eloquent speaker, and a good and loyal citizen. His return to St. Al bans will be cordially welcomed.

No crime committed in New En gland ever began to awaken the in terest that this murder has created, and the shocking story of Almy's last crime has burned itself into the hearts of every household, and al! are familiar with the circumstances con nrr'ed therewith. Almy's last day was no more eventful than many previous ones, he haying passed the greater part of it in reading. He left no statement and met death calmly at Concord, N. H., Inst Tues day, the following account of which, we take from the St. Albans Messen ger: At 10:13 the death march was be gun from the matron's room, Almy being in charge of the Sheriff aud his deputies, and accompanied by the Chaplain. In a moment the scaffold was reached and the stillness at this time was very painful. Almy's arms and lower limbs were quicidy strap ped. His face became ashen pale and he was very nervous, swayingslightly in either direction, but the support of the officers helped him to keep his place. His spirit was evidently broken, and as Sheriff Hurlburt concluded strapping Almy's lower limbs, the condemned man, looking into the officer's face, said twice, in an almost inaudible tone, "may I speak ?" The sheriff shook his head and adjusted the rope about Almy's neck. Even then the latter appeared to want to speak, but the black cap was hastily placed over his face and he said nothing. The sheriff placed the hangman's knot under his left ear, and then stepped off the scaffold, aud at 10:16 touched the spring. The drop fell heavily, and Almy's body went through. To the horror of the spectators his feet struck the floor, and his knees bent. The rope wa6 evidently too long, as it did not stretch any. As his feet touched the floor his body swayed to the right and slightly forward. When the offi cers on the scaffold pulled the body up several feet, another shudder ran through the witnesses when they saw the position of the rope and knot; the former was pulled over the left ear, while the knot was fully one foot above the neck. But one or two tremors or twitching motions could be seen, and then there was an entire absence of struggling. Life was pronounced extinct at 10:30, and the body was taken down. The wit nesses left the prison, and the gal lows was token apart and put away before the dinner hour, so as not to be seen by the other prisoners. At the post mortem examination of Frank C. Almy, thirty minutes after death, it was found that death came instantly with the drop, by reason of dislocation and fracture of the spine, at the second and third circular vertebra?. Almy did not leave any statement, as it was supposed he might, or a request for anybody to make one for him. The ring he wore will be buried with him. It is the same one which was in the package given John Ful ler by Almy in the Warden barn at Hanover before his surrender. Green Goods Men Beaten. To James Gillespie of Freeland Pa., belong the credit of beating green coodsmen at their own game. Gil lespie is usually employed as a col lector of a commercial agency. His income nets him a modest living. To an intimate friend on the 7th inst. he imparted the information that he was negotiating with New York green goods men, and he was to make an effort to beat them. He went to New York the 8th and returned the 9th, and iii evidence of his success now ex hibits two rolls of money. One con tains $1500 in crisp, genuine bank notes; the other, to all appearances is the same, but an examination shows it to be nothing but green paper. Gillespie began a correspond ence with green goods men a year ago. He had a thorough knowl edge of the methods employed by them. A month ago this region was flooded with the green goods litera ture, and he received one of their cir culars. He re-opened communica tions, received a code of signals for identification, and was instructed to use the telegraph. Newark, N. J., was the point to which he was instructed to telegraph. All messages that he received came from New York. He was to put in $300 and receive $1500 of the etuff, which would "defy de tection." It was arranged that Gillespie should go to Newark, and when an early train pulled into that city Thursday morning Gillespie carried a carpet bag and an umbrella. He was met at the station by a man who had a coupe in waiting. When he introduced his friend there was some hesitation exhibited on the part of the man with the carriage, but not serious. After driving for about 15 minutes the cab was halted before a hotel and the trio entered. They were here met by another man. Again it was necessary for Gillespie to explain that his companion had in his clothes hard cash, and was willing to make the deal. After being conducted to an inner room the first man whom they met exhibited and counted a roll of money containing $1600. The confederate suddenly appeared, but the patrons kept an eye on the roll, and before the flim flam game of exchanging the money for bogus paper could be accomplish ed Gillespie held the wad and offered his own in exchange. The dealers again tried to divert attention, but to their surprise found themselves looking into a pair of pistols. Believing that they had been duped by detectives, the men made a dash for the door. In their haste they dropped the roll of bogus paper which was intended for their victims. Pocketing both rolls Gillespie and his companion escaped through the window and arrived home to-night. This is the story he tells, and he has both kinds of money to prove his words. The Cost of the Faik. It may be worth while to set down for reference the various sources from which the enormous sums of money put into the World's Fair have been derived. The amounts as stated in Director General Davis' report are as follows: Appropriated by foreign govern ments, 0,572, 000 Contributed bv states and indi viduals, 0,021,000 Appropriated by tlie United States lor exbibits, souvenir coins, nationnl commission, and board and medals, 5,374.000 From stockholders, 5,554,000 From Chicago, 5,000,000 Debenture bonds, 4.004,000 Gate receipts, interest, etc., 019,000 Total, f35,234,000 It will be observed that foreign gov ernments have appropriated more for representation at the Fair than the states of the Union, through which, for the most part, the re sources and progress of the United states are to be exhibited. That the contributions of the states are no larger is due mainly to the South, which does not seem to have entered very heartily into the enterprise. The total contributions from that section. Delaware included, amount to but $914,000. The great state of Texas has given nothing. This was an advertising chance the new South should not have missed. General Edward D. Townsend for a number of years adjutant general of the army, died Thursday at Washington. Our New Navy. Washington, D. C, May ll, 1893. Mr. Editor: If we have been astonished by the progress made by the world's navies in building vessels of iron and steel, one of which would be able to with stand the combined attack of the most powerful of ttie world's great fleets at the commencement of our war, we shall be none the less so when we come to the armament of these vessels and of the works which are planned, and a beginning made in their erection, to withstand them. In fact it has been a race between armor and guns all the way through first, the ship would seem to be in vulnerable and then a gun would be made that would "laugh to scorn the efforts of her builders " and make it seem as though nothing could be made that would be able to with stand the shock of itsprojtctiles; but then came the wonderful method of strengthening the resisting power of the armor by various processes, among which our own, known us "Harveyized steel," is considered to be the most effective, which e.nables a plate to double its resisting power, so that at the present time so far as guns and armor are concerned the honors seem about equally divided. At the commencement of the war ten-inch Dalgrens in the navy and Rodmans in the navy were the most powerful guns we had in use, and they were considered as good as any in the world. There had been a little talk about rifled guns and some ex periments had been made with them but had not on the whole proved very satisfactory at least in this country. A practical breech-loader was then a thing unknown. Right here, however, I want to say that the man who thinks a breech-loading cannon is a, modern invention will charge his mind very soon if he will go into the Navy Yard museum and see an old bronze specimen there. I do not know its age, but more than one hundred years, and 1 think more than two, have passed since it was founded. As far as the weapon goes it seems to me it would be more dan gerous to the men behind than those in front, as its mechanism consists of a block of bronze with a handle like a flat-iron to work it by and a key to bring it somewhere in the neigh borhood of the bore to the gun. Great ships armed with a large number of broad-eide guns of moder ate calibre and one or two pivot guns of larger build, that would sweep fore and aft, composed the fighting navies ot the world ; and while steam had been adopted as the motive power it was still so imperfectly de veloped that the fast sailing vessels of the world only wanted a good wind to 'get away ' from the steam vessels, and on them sails were used as auxiliary power. For our Moni tors we built what were then enor mous guns of fifteen-inch bore; ami I well remember my astonishment when I got a man to row out beyond the target that was built to try the first ones tor the original Monitor, when her thirteen-inch ones were dis placed, and on getting outside of the target, eighty rods from the gun, 1 saw that it had made a clear breach through five and one-half inches of iron and three feet of oak. Thearmy not to be outdone built sixteen-inch Rodman pattern guns that carried a round shot that weighed about 430 pounds and had an effective range of from three to tour miles. 1 hese guns were thought to be well nigh mvinci ble. Early in the course of the war we began building rifled guns of small calibre, I'arrotts and some lards, a gun that it seems to me did not get the credit due to it, for those who used them called them effective and eivsy to handle. I think they were the first guns made of steel in this country. The I'arrott was a good gun in the smaller sizes. Most of your readers are familiar with a very good example in " Black Bet sy," but her carriage is not as good as the service guns. Parrotts of the largest size were never safe to use on account of the danger of bursting, or rather blowing out the breech, al though the charges were very small ones, never being as I remember more than one-fifth the weight of the shot. Now comparetheseguns with those of to-day, an immense mass of steel more than forty feet long and weigh ing more than seventy-five tons, with a calibre of thirteen inches, using five hundred pounds of powder and hurl ing a bolt of steel with a hardened point to a distance of more than ten miles, and with a force sufficient at a distance of one mile to pierce more than twenty inches of solid iron, the shot weighing one thousand pounds. Such are the largest navy guns we have to-day, but other nations are building thewi much larger, as those who go to the fair will see in the im mense Krupp gun that uses a shot of twice the weigut mentioned. But all the attention is not de voted to great guns as all the vessels are provided with guns of from four to eight-inch calibre that are the ones intended for the destruction of commerce and all uses except great battles. Beauties these guns are too long and slim, looking as though they intended to perform their work in the neatest possible manner, al beit a gruesome work it is at the best in time of war. There are the rapid-firing guns, too, and the Gat- hngs, saucy little fellows, one and all, as any one would find who should have occasion to feel their power. Then there is that other element of destruction, with which every mod ern war-ship is provided, dynamite, which bids fair to compel the world to be at peace on the sea, at least, for what construction of man can withstand its fearful power, so im mense that a single charge of it would send the strongest ship of the earth to the bottom of the sea in less time than it takes to tell it. And what of the torpedoes that can be be guided by the electric current for miles under the ocean and made to come and go more obedi ently than a well-trained horse. The mind is dazed when it thinks of all these things of which mere mention has been made, but I will stop with the remark I made in my last letter that they are peace-makers, one and all, for they make the science of war too dear to play at even for the nations of the old world -dear both in human life and in treasure, for it takes more than a thousand dollars to fire one of the greatest guns of the world to day, h. That Sugar Exhibit. The statement that the sugar makers of this state did not take as much interest in the exhibit at Chi cago as was hoped would be the case when the matter was first broached is borne out by the list of exhibitors which Supt. Whitman publishes in a recent issue of the Free Press. This list, while containing quite a number of names, represents mainly the cen tral and southern portions of the state. Several sections which have a special reputation as sugar-produa-ing localities are conspicuous on the above-named list either by their ab sence or by the meagerness of their contributions to the exhibit. If the display of Vermont maple sugar and syrup at Chicago is a fine one which let us hope is the case the credit will belong mainly to a few sections of the state, and cannot be distributed as generally as it might have been if a lively interest had been aroused among the sugar makers of every county in the commonwealth Caledonian. NOTES. Commissioner Blount has be n ap pointed minister resident to Hawaii. With a World's Columbian exposi tion at one end of the town and a cinnamon bear hunt at the other,' Chicago is preserving its reputation for vivacity and variety. The tenth anniversary of the open ing of Brooklyn bridge w ill be cele brated on the 24th of this month. The bridge was fifteen years in build ing and is now used by 40,000,000 people annually. Warm Vermont maple suirar is to be served at the world's fair, under direction of Supt. Whitman. How the lips of the al en multi udi will smack when moistened by that de lc!ous substance direct from Ver mont. Ex-Secretary Fairchild declines to serve on the commission to investi gate the New York custom-house. .Vir. laircnild states that his business engagements will not permit hiin to accept the position tendered by Sec retary Carlisle. Reports from thirty of the sixty two internal revenue districts giving the number of Chinese who have registered, which has been received at the treasury department, show that 3,043 Chinese have complied with the law. The wealth of the United States was never so great as it is to-day. The resources at the command of the United States Gov- rnment are prac tically unlimited. There is no reason why any American citizen should be disturbed by the clamor of alarmists. The new leather trust is reported as having a capiinl variously esti mated from $120,000,000 to 130, 000,000. Whatev r the figures, it is one of the biggest combiues ever or ganized. And rig' t in the face of a Democratic ndmii.istration and its professed hostility to trusts! The Philadelphia Centennial expo sition opened just thirteen yearsago, and the total number of admissions at the gates during the season were 9,900,000. The receipts wer $3,813, 723. The question is how far the show at Chicago is going to surpass this in point of patronage. It has got to bo a great deal petter in order to begin to pay thp expenses. The new Cunarder Campania ar rived last week from Ncv York, mak ing the passage in five da vs 17 hours and 42 minutes, the qui. J est east ward passage on record. The best previous eastward record was held by the City of New York and was five davs and 19 hours and 57 minutes. i A Wyoming editor has patented a plan for a railroad which he claims will work easier, swifter, with less noise and less dust, than any system now in use, and he expects trains to make a hundred miles an hour on it. This is another proof of the wisdom of the remark that what a newspaper man can't turn his hand to isn't worth considering by ordinary mor tals. May 31 has been set apirt as "wheelman's day" at the World's Fair. There will be a parade by bi cyclists through the grounds from 10 to 11:30 a. m., and from 8:30 to 10 p. m. All bicyclers, whether be longing to clubs or not, will be allow ed to take part. It is expected that there will be nearly 20,000 wheelmen in line. Nearly half of the village of Spring Lake on the Detroit Grand Haven and Milwaukee railroad and on the Grand river, two miles above Grand Haven, was destroyed by fire Thurs day. Two churches, tfie residences of William Gee, James Emery and fifty smaller houses were burned. Eighty families are without a home. The loss will foot up $160,000. Kansas has solved the tramp ques tion. Women justices of the peace in that state sentence a lazy, dirty, good-for-nothing tramp to thirty days' imprisonment for vagrancy and two baths a day. This settles him, for the genuine tramp hates water as much as a cat does. Wom an's wit is equal to most emergencies and by means of it the tramp nui sance is fast being washed out of Kansas. It is estimated that tbe "shrinkag in values" in Wall street since the re cent excitement is over $30,000,000. This is more apparent than real, however. The shrinkage is on paper. The properties represented are about as valuable as before. Booming fancy stocks for speculative purposes adds nothing to the actual posses sions of the country, and when the air is let out of the balloon no harm is done except to those foolish enough to invest in such shaky property. E. A. MacDonaldof Toronto, Cana da, who has been in New lork for a few weeks, has, it is said, organized a syndicate to construct an aqueduct from Georgian Bay to Toronto, 60 miles, to supply l oronto with domes tic water and motive power. The plan also involves the construction of the ship and canal projected over 40 years ago by the late Mr. Capreol and others, to shorten the route 40 miles between Chicago and New Y'ork The plan contemplates the expendi ture of over $30, 000,000. Amateur photographers do not fare well at the world's fair. Only small hand cameras are admitted to the grounds, and these only on the payment of two dollars per day. The exposition managers are running the photographing business them selves, and do not propose to have their profits reduced by competition, even of the amateur kind. Another cause of complaint is that their charges resemble those of the expo sition restaurants, but the visitors can get along without pictures, while they must have food. Mrs. Isaiah Emerson Of Manchester, N. II. After the Grip Hood's Sarsapariila Restored Health and Strength "Last winter I had tho Grip and was quits sick. After I began to get better, being weak and run down, I concluded to try Hood's Sarsa pariila, seeing it recommended so highly. I must, ay that I was moro than pleased with it. I recovered my health completely in a short timo and think I Am in Better Health than before I was sick. I feel suro that this Is due to Hood's Sarsapariila. In the package of Sarsapariila when I opened It I found a sample box of Hood's rills. I was surprised and de lighted to find how well tliey agreed with mo, no grilling and no weakening afterward. I have tried many other kinds of pills, but Hood's Pills the preference every time now. I think they are just wonderful.

Morrisville, Vt. 2ST T iXIIOSTONMAUKETS Kolliin? to IVs Seen That Can Bo Callel a Feature. Strawberry Trade Oucuple Attention of Fruit Dealer Fine Jlerrle From Nor folk Demand For Apple. lVis-rov. M,iv II. There is nothing to be Becu in the various liues of market trado for the past week that might be called a feature. Th hnttpr troile is nerhang not as fluc- t anting as it has been. Receipts are of the best quality. Poor butter is not com- inir at this time of year, so that even 11 the retail buyer pays a long price for his butter he is sure of a good thing for his money. Kound lots or western creams have been selling at 27 to 29 cents a pound. Dairy butter ranged from 23 to 20 cents, and in jobbing lots fine creamery selec tions went as high as 30 cents. It is pre dicted that with the increased make of butter prices cannot be sustained at last week's basis. The Strawberry Trade now occunies the attention of the fruit dealers. Georgia terries are coming in all stnees of ripeness, with prices ranging from 10 to 20 cents a box. Some fine berries are being received from Norfolk, Va., and these sell as high as 85 cents a box at wholesale. Cranberries are no loneer to be seen In barrels. They have been picked over and Dacked in bushel crates and these are worth $4 to 5 each. Apples grow less in demand as the season advances and their good qualities decline. Baldwins bring $2.50 a barrel and Spies from $4 to $5, for the soundest fruit. The Poultry Market. is quiet with little home reared fctock in trade. Western turkeys sell for 16 cents a pound; Philadelphia capons, 26 cents a pound; fowl, 13 to 15 cents; pigeon, $1.75 a dozen and squab, $2.25 to $2;75 a dozen. Vegetable. The vegetable market is quiet. Quota tions are: Old beets, 11.15 a bushel, old tifiuasb, f5 a barrel; carrots, DO to CO cents a bushel; yellow turnips, $1 to $1.25 a barrel; w hite Sweedes, 2.2o to $2.50; old cabbage, $2.25 a barrel; potatoes about $1 a bushel for well kept stock. New vegetables from the south largely renluce the home grown stock of last sea son, but the new stock brings a fancy price, which would be out ot place uere. The Qnotatlons.

The Chilton Paint Co. does not make a fire-proof paint. If they ditl what a business they would do among the sinners. Fire-proof paint for outside work has never yet teen a success. Many people are prejudic ed against mixed paints, possibly rightly, too, nt least they think so; but let them lay nsidetheir prejudices, get a good painter, some Chilton Taint, and follow instructions. The strong -r they were neainst us the better we like it, for once convinced of the superior qualities of Chilton Taint, they will use no other. The instructions are, mainly, to have the paint npplied to a dry' surface. The paint- r who is not afraid of brushing his paint out, stretching it, as it were, is tlie man who will do for you the best work, and use the least paint in doing it.

DAKOTA AND MINNESOTA, REAL ESTATE worth from two and one half to five times the amounts loaned. Interest and Principal will be collected and paid here and Insur ance and Taxes looked after with out expense to investors. o The following are some of the reasons why I can positively rec ommend these investments : 1. The Red River Valley is one of the best farming regions in the wo; Id, is well settled and prosperous, and Has Never Had a Failure ok Crops. 2. Loans there have much Lar ger Margins of Security than similar loans east and interest is paid more promptly. 3. An experience of eight years in loaning in all parts ot the Valley has given me a reliable knowledge of lands, values and all necessary details which enables me to select the best loans on Mv Own Judgment. 4. I either know personally the security for each loan or have it specially examined by men for whose good judgment and integrity I can fully vouch.' .
