There was a good turnout to the annual inspection of G. W. Doty Camp, Sons of Veterans, on Monday evening. Inspector A. L. Cheney went to Cambridge Tuesday evening.

He is filling large orders from new dealers, and the business is brisk with a favorable outlook. The Lamoille Valley Veterans' As sociation will hold its annual reunion on the fair grounds here July 4th, making it a one day affair filled with interest and an exceptionally attract ive program.

Tho ad dress ot Memorial Day will be deliver ed by Hon. Henry Ballard of Bur lington. Department Commander Doty will be in Rutland that day to participate in exercises of special in terest there. As will be seen elsewhere this year's graduating class at the Academy will continue the idea inaugurated by last year's class in the giving of an entertainment under its auspices in connection with the closing days of the school ear. The announcement of L. B. Boyn ton, which appears this week, should be carefully considered by the buyers of this and surrounding towns. Mr. Boynton has been before the people in various enterprises, and has the reputation of meaning what he says. Hyde Park people have undoubted ly plugged their ears with cotton and put a forty-ton weight on the roof of The Phoenix, preparatory to "the frnst of wisdom and flow of soul" which occurs there to-night under the auspices of our ladies' Current Topic Club. Rev. Mr. Seymour spoke with refer ence to the different branches of work in his church and society on Sunday, congratulating all that such a meas ure ot success has been attained, but earnestly urging a still more hearty co-operation in and consecration to the needed work. The meeting of the Cniversalist la dies' circle in the Matthews' building last Thursday afternoon, and the regular meeting of the United Work ers at the Cong'l church on Friday afternoon, were both well attended, enjoyable affairs. The customary dime supper was served at each. Capt. Kenfield has been engaged in measuring the highways of the town during the past week. The measure ment is made by an odometer, a de vice for recording distanoe traveled, which is attached to his buggy wheel. Morristown's roads will show up not far from 100 miles in length. The measurement is made under the new law, the State road tax being divided according to the mileage. The class cf '93 at tho Academy have arranged with Mrs. Edgetly, Principal of the Boston College of Oratory, to give an entertainment consisting of readings and statue poses from Greek models at the town hall, May 30th. Mrs. Edgerly is an acknowledged master of her art, and a pleasant entertainment may be ex pected. Her entertainments are very highly spoken of by the press. The time for weighing of mapTe sugar expired on Monday, when C. H. Slocum closed up his business as gov ernment weigher, His record shows 26,572 pounds weighed. The largest lot of one make was 2,610 pounds, by H. H. Churchill of Elmore. This amount of sugar represents but a small part of the maple product of this section. It represents but few makers, while they as well as the ma jority of producers make a large amount of syrup which doesn't figure in this connection. Mr. Blanchard of St. Albans, an expert machinist in the Central Ver mont car shops, has leased a part of the new foundry building here, and in a few days will occupy it for a general machine shop, which will be equipped with iron working machines intended to do all sorts of repair work. This will be a matter of much importance to the many mill men in our vicinity who are now obliged to shut down their works and go to Montpelier for repairs. There would seem to be an open field for such an enterprise here, and all will hail Mr. Blanchard's com ing and wish him abundant success. The clouds of dust encountered nearly every day of last week by any one on the streets, as well as the discomforture of merchants and housekeepers, served to again bring to the front the question of sprink ling our streets. As to the need there can be no question, but how is it to be done? The practical suggestion is made that an elevated tank might be built near the watering trough and a sprinkler filled directly from it, with no expense for water. If the corporation or private individuals could accomplish this much needed improvement a dust-begrimed public would rise up and call them blessed. Sunday was anniversary day with the Epworth Leaguers, and was duly celebrated at the Methodist church here. Rev. Mr, Nanton's morning sermon was upon the League and the ideal Leaguer. Using the name as an acrostic he drew lessons of desirable attainments with words beginning with the letters in Epworth League. The evening service was devoted to a concert by the Junior League princi pally, assisted by older members, i Great pains in drilling the children and decorating for the occasion were taken by numerous ones, which, with the kind aid of those assisting in the program, went to make up a veryenr joyable as well as profitable day and evening. Col. A. O. Gates, one of Morrisville's long-time resident business men, has by reason of poor health sold out his drug business, which has been suc cessfully conducted by him for twenty-six years in the same location. The purchaser is Mr. H. J. Dwinell of Lyndonville, who took possession of the business last Ffiday. He is a young man, well equipped with a thorough knowledge of the business, and . will be welcomed to a place among our thriving business con cerns. Col. Gates retires for a well earned rest mindful of the favors re ceived from the surrounding com munity, bespeaking for Mr. Dwinell a continuation of the same, Mr. Gates will remain here and all will wish him a rapid and complete restoration to sound health. Sir. Dwinell will soon remove his family here from Lyndon ville, where he was engaged in the drug business. M. E, Ciiuroju Notices -Thursday at 7 P m. Prayer meeting Friday at 4 p. m.

Warren Robinson moves to the place vacated by Tulliert, having bought the same lust fall. All the parties moved last week except FiUgerald, who came last Monday, There is nothing I have ever used for muscular rheumatism that gives me as much relief as Chamberlain's Pain Balm does. I have been using it for about two years four bottles in all as occasion required, and al ways keep a bottle of it in my home. I believe I know a good thing when I get bold of it, and Pain Balm is the best liniment I ever met with. W. B. Denny, dairyman, New Lexington, Ohio. 50 cent bottles for sale by A. O.

Bert has many friends here who wish him success in his new calling. We are pleased to note the good work which has been in progress the past week of cleaning up the yards and surroundings of the residences of oar village. There are many places back of buildings that are still in a dirty, unhealthy condition. Of course, such a condition is a nat ural consequence during the winter months in every locality, and now is the time to go through the pro cess of renovating, thus guarding against any infectious diseases that might arise from unclean surround ings. Let the good work go on. The change of time, which went into effect on the Boston & Maine railroad last Monday, does not make very much change in the ar rival of trains at this station except ing the mail train east, which leaves here at 12:03 p. m. instead of 9:47 a. m. as heretofore.
