MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK. Thursday, March 1. 1894. I. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. The country is becoming very weary ot Mr. Willis and his letters. Call him home. The President has left Congress to itself for a few days, and gone off down South on a fishing expedition. May he have better luck than he does in handling the Senate. It gives one faith in humanity to witness the efforts made in every city and country neighborhood to relieve the sufferings of the poor this winter. It is a good world after all. Not since the conviction of Boss Tweed has there been a verdict in the courts of this country which has given so much encouragement to the lovers of law, order and honest government as the conviction of John Y.McKane, the Gravesend "czar." Never before has the Keystone State made so emphatic an utter ance in favor of Protection as she did in the election held last week for Con- gress-at-large, when that veteran statesman, Galusha A. Grow, received the prodigious and unprecedented m c frr -f itin nnn the laro-psr, V i V jV w uuv n ' majority, by the way, any Congress man ever received. The suggestion that the best meth 'od of improving the road law of 1892 be brought up for discussion at the coming town meetings is an excellent one. The experience and knowledge of everybody is desired, and in no way can a better expression of the nublic be obtained than as above suggested. Such a discussion would also be beneficial to the coming legis lature. Both of the St. Johnsbury paper? have come out for Henry C. Bates of that town for Lieut.-Governor. The matter who shall head the ticket be ing practically settled, all the fun now centres onthetail. Manygood names have been suggested, yet we think the man who gets the nomination will have to state very emphatically that he will not at any time be a can didate for the Governorship. Lamoille County " Boys" In Chicago. The following brief mention of a few now prominent men of the city of Chicago, who secured their first "inspiration" here in "spunky Lamoille, will be read with interest by many and we are promised sev eral installments; and some of Chi cago's " first ladies " may anticipate at least respectful mention in the near future. The notices are from an "old timer," who has contributed several articles for this paper under the cognomen of "Trouble," etc., etc. Further the deponent saith naught: ISAAC N. CAMP. It was something like forty years ago that Isaac N. Camp, of Elmore, and Hampden L. Story, formerly of Cambndce. came to this city and es tablished b musitt store".' Their busi ness was most successful for they were men of push and were always at the front. Some fifteen years ago Mr. Story retired and was succeeded by the house of Deacon Estey & Co., the firm thus being Estey & Camp. To-day they are among the leading dealers of musical instruments in the west, and the house of Estey & Camp is one of the bulwarks of the garden city. Isaac N. Camp is rich; he has a, palatial home and is most pleasant ly surrounded, and is always pleased to meet a Vermonter, especially from "Spunky Lamoille," and extend him the right hand of fellowship. He is reserved, but not an autocrat. He has great reverence for that badge "In God AVe Trust." A big round dollar in the embrace of Isaac N. Camp, father or son, is generally there to stay; but they pay the freight. CHAS. E. MERRIAM. This gentleman is the youngest son of the late Hon. Samuel Mer riam, of Johnson. He came to Chi cago when about eighteen years of age twenty-five years ago and se cured a position as shipping clerk in a large wholesale grocery house. He afterward secured the heart and hand of the head of that house and to-day is the senior member of the firm of Merriam, Collins & Co., one of the largest business houses in Chi cago, their specialty being wholesale groceries. Many people in Johnson will re member the red-headed boy, Charlie Merriam, who was brought up ac cording to the creed of the good old Congregational church as expounded by Father Dougherty but up to date he has made a success of this world; how it will be in the next, time can only tell. To-day he is re regarded as a cautious business man, among the first of Chicago. Yes; I have ducked Charlie Mer riam in the snow-drifts of Johnson many a time, and he deserved it. As a lad he was full of life and tricks, but now, like many of us, he is a bald-headed, sober man. BRAINKRD M. PARKER. w nen a .vouch Urainerd-.HarKer at tended school in Johnson at the old academy, sang in the Baptist choir, and attended the Baptist Sunday school. Thirty or more years ago he drifted we3t, but not to the bad. He settled there in the suburb of Hyde Park, near Jackson Park, now in the city, bought farms, kept liv ing, and is now well-to-do and re spected by all, save a few old maids, who wonder why-he will persist in living a single blessedness. Mr. Parker has been most success ful in all his business ventures, and has only friends among his numerous acquaintances. He is a cousin of statesman Parker, of Cambridge; but, unlike his relative, has no Presi dential aspirations. Vermont Day at San Francisco. The program for Vermont day at the California Midwinter Fair promises to be very pleasing. After the Ver monters have been escorted through the grounds, literary exercises will be presented in Festival hall. Com missioner Dillingham, a brother of ex-Gov. W. P. Dillingham, will begin the speech-making and a number of Vermonters, residents in California, will follow, among them Senator It. B. Carpenter of Los Angeles. In the evening a New England dinner will be served and a reception held at Odd Fellows hall. The day's exer cises will end with dancing. A large and enthusiastic meeting of Ver monters was recently held at San Francisco to take steps for the cele bration and elect officers, F. Dilling liam, whom the Governor of Vermont has appointed honorary commission er, presiding. BOOK. OF GROVER. By Hezekiah, the Scribe. Chapter I. Now it came to pass in the last days that the followers of Grover the great, surnamedthegoldite, thearne which begat Ruth and Esther and the panic and the Hawaiian tremble, vexed with vexation exceeding, inasmuch as they listeth not to the localitv where they abideth at. For 'behold, in the beginning they girded up their loins and went before the people, crying with a loud voice. Verily, we say unto an men mat r are Groverites from exceeding far back, and woe unto ye who forget it. And verilv, we hold in exceeding orpat detestation that which the children of men called the tariff, for is it not a thing fashioned by our enemies, the same which hath licked the everlasting stuffing out 01 us from generation to generation? Yea, verilv, tnis same ucue pro tective tariff it buildeth furnaces in the valley and smokestacks on the mountain top; it turnein me wneeis of progress and causeth the desert to hlnssnm like unto a ereeu uay tree. Whorpinre do we of the tribe ot Grover the great despise the same as a curse and an abomination in the sight of men. Yen., a stench that offendetn our nostrils, the same which we smelleth from atar on. And behold, in the great and terri ble day of the ballot, when the armies of voters be gathered together, shall we arise in our might and smite our enemies into mincemeat Yea. we shall lay them out cold on the platform of free trade, and cover thetu overrwitu piatiKs form. And our enemies shall be scattered like unto the leaves of the forest, for Grover shall rend them into frag ments like unto a potter's vessel, the which hath been smitten by the fl'tp ner of a vouth, and then shall the end come. For in that day shall our banner be planted on the outer wall of the great citadel 01 tne nation, ana we shall bow down unto urover, our deliverer, who shall thenceforth be known as our Saviour on Mount Buzzard. And he shall reign lor lour years and shall shower good times and fat offices and special messages and free raw materials upon us in rich abun dance forever. And the black smoke of industry shall no longer obscure the noonday sun, and the farmer shall wear pants woven in foreign parts, and socks from the isles of the eea. And it was even so. And after the space of a time, Grover, who was a mierhtv fisher, girded up his lines and his chattels and his Cabinet and went up and pitched his tent over against the Capitol, which is in the land of Columbia, and the band played be hold the cat hath come back Chapter II. Now when Grover was crowned kins of the Nation, it came to pass that he was puffed up in the pride of his heart and his other viscera, was much as his raiment became several cubits too small to contain his joblots. And he shook himself by the hand, which is after the manner, of his tribe, and spoke unto himself, say ing, ha, ha I Behold. 1 am monarch of all X can get. Four years more of Grover four more years in clover 1 0 Ameri ca, America, how often would I have gathered ye under my wing, but ye would not But now I have ye on the hip, and ye are confronted with a condition not a theory, for behold I will rule or rum ye ! Yea, verily, to commence with, I will brandish my great silver sjird, and all who, believe on me and 14 my will shall be saved, all who don't shall be broke. And I will call my soothsayers to gether and they shall tinker at the tariff, and when they have finished their tinkering McKinley, the father of the factory7will not recognize the same. And it shall come to pass that all ye who harken unto the sound of my voice shall have sewing-machines from Glasgow at cost and ten off, and corrugated copper gaskets from the ends of the earth. And when Grover had spake these words he crew thrice and the people went out and wept bitterly. Chapter III. And after the space of a time it came to pass that when the shep herds took of the firstlings of their flock and sheared them, and went up to the city to exchange their fleeces for pieces of silver, the wise men of the season said unto them : Not this season! Some other season. Yea, Grover is great. He is all wool and a yard wide, but the slump in wool is several cubits wider. And the shepherds marveled ex ceeding, and some of them, yea even they which had harkened unto the voice of Grover, smote their breasts and went up and down with bent heads crying one to another, "Be hold, if thou wilt kick me I will do even so unto thee." And when the diggers of the earth went up with their silver and lead and precious stones and said to the money-changers, " Give us food that we may eat and clothing that we may dress up," the money-changers laughed little cold hard laughs and sang songs of great sacrifice, saying, " Grover, Grover, four years more of Grover; we would buy your lead, but times are dead, till four years are over, and other psalms And when they heard the psalmists many hired kickers and others tore their hair and all the inhabitants of the nation said damn And it came to pass that the storms came and the panics descended and the children of darkness lifted up their hands and wrung them ia great. lamentatioiu-sajing Wherefore art thou, Grover, our deliverer, and wherefore are the good times at?" and a m'ghty voice came back from the wilderness, saying: "The President is fishing and must not be disturbed." Salt Lake Trib une. One of the Dangers of Mexico. " The principal pest of Mexico," said E. P. Brewer of Central America, " is the scorpion. In damp or wet weath er he is omnipotent, and in hotels can be seen to run up and down upon the walls. He is about four to six inches in length and is not particu larly repulsive in appearance, but his sting generally results fatally. I was in a hotel at one time where two other salemen stopped in the same room, and as we went to go to bed I saw the scorpions chasing each other up and down the wall. I called my fellow-travelers' attention to them, but they thought that they could protect themselves, and we all went to bed. I put up a shield, as is common in that country, but my friends were not used to this protec tion, and in the morning the man who thought he was safe was dead. I never go to bed in Mexieo without thoroughly protecting every exposed portion of my body." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Editor News and Citizen ; A circular from Burlington admits that the Road Law needs a large amount of amending, and to help the next legislature to determine what changes and improvements are need ed and demanded by the people, six questions are asked of men of ability iu the several towns, and a sugges tion made that it might be well if this subject could be discussed at the coining town-meetings. So far as towns are concerned, the only questions needing discus sion are: Would you favor the change from the state to the county method of distributing the five per cent, high way tax? Would it be advisable to have a practical road-builder as supervisor or instructor in each county c What chances in the law of 1892 would you suggest? At this late date, we know of no way to so forcibly bring home to the people for discussion at our next town-meetme these questions, as to ask you to insert this in your paper HEADER. A Peep Into the Future- We read about the "swarming mil lions" of Russia, and suppose that the poor people of the czar s domin ion are coming over here for lack of room. Well, the census says there are 124,000,000 of them, or about double the number of people in the United States. But Russia has 8,- 400,000 square miles of territory, while the United States, counting Alaska, has 3 569,530. With an tverage of forty acres apiece, or 200 cres for every family of five, it is ev ident that our Russian immigrants are not crowded oif for lauk of space. When our country becomes filled with people, there will be a great rush for the unoccupied helds ot iiussia But still the cry will go up, " Young man, go west," for the Behringstraits will be bridged, and the entry into Asia will be made by rail, the emi grants carrying our free institutions with them. These pessimistic students of social science who are already fig uring upon the over-population of the rarth and its failure to feed the "swaroiintr millions," should take Russia into the account. A century hence the descendants of these Rus' sian immigrants are likely to enter on tne return journey to the "mother country," but it will no longer be "the land of the czar." The Wool Growebs' Memorial. The memorial of the National Wool Growers' association presented to the senate last week, after giving statis tics of the magnitude of the sheep raising iudustry, with its invested capital of five hundred thousand dol lars, lays down a number of proposi tions, the substance of which is that free wool will destroy the wool indus try here, will be an act of bad faith to investors who were led into the business by the promise of the exist ing laws, will disastrously affect all related and dependent agricultural industries cutting off demands for pasturage, etc., and so affecting the oue-balf of the population engaged in agriculture, and in turn reacting upon the merchants. The Russian Thistle. The Rus sian Thistle, which was imported into the northwest by immigrants from the land ot the czar, has cast the Canada thistle into thick shade. It grows to the size of a cart wheel, and forms a thick and solid mat of sharp branches and thistles without leaves, through which no plow can penetrate, nor fire consume. Three counties in North Dakota, near the South Dakota line, have been aban doned on account of its presence and 70,000 square miles of lnd liav been rendered unproductive. The agricultural committee of the house had the matter under consideration last Saturday, an appropriation for the extermination of the weed having been asked for. It is estimated that at least $1,000,000 will be required to make the work effective. Bradford's New Library. Bv the will of John L. Woods of Cleveland, Ohio, Bradford received $15,000 for a public library, two-thirds to be used for the building, the balance to be held as an endowment. The plan of Lambert Packard of St. Johnsbury was selected by the committee. The new building will be 66 by 33 feet, with 14-inch brick walls, and of the Romanesque style of architecture. It will contain book room, delivery room, reading room and librarian's room. An octagonal tower in front has stairs leading to the curio room above the main entrance. The esti mated cost of the building is $8,000. The town is also building a $15,000 school house. A Veteran of Ninety. The 90th birthday of Neal Dow, the Maine apos tle of prohibition, will occur March 20, and his friends are intending to celebrate it with special ceremonies. Not only will it be celebrated at his home in Portland, but meetings in honor of the " Maine law " will doubt less be held in many other places by advocates of pnohibition and total abstinence. Mr. Dow's first interest in the temperance movement was in connection with the Maine temper ance union, which in 1837urgedupon the leeislature the abrogation of all license laws. In 1839 he appeared as a public advocate of prohibition, ad vocating before thealdermen ot Port land the reference of the question of license or no license, to a vote of citi zens. Since then Gen. Dow has been actively interested in temperance work. He served in the war and was twice wounded ; he was captured by the rebels and in 1861 wasexchangecl for Gen. Fitz Hugh Lee. In 1880 Gen. Dow was the Prohibition candi date for President, sad -received 10,- ttrrroteS. La Grippe. During the prevalence of the Grippe the past seasons it was a noticeable fact that those who depended upon Dr. King's New Discovery not only had a speedy recovery, but escaped all of the troublesome after effects of the malady. This remedy seems to have a peculiar power in effecting rapid cures not only in cases of La Grippe, but in all Diseases of Throat, Chest and Lungs, and has cured cases of Asthma and Hay Fever of long standing.

The fact is that the graves are filled ea soon as the friends leave the cemetery. I do not think anybody would take pains to compliin to him, if such was the case. They would more likely come to me.

In the life of eosiiiopolit.m p-aris tho pen sion plays si r-qlu of prominence. It is a iri.n-kcd i.nrt characteristic feature of the City, as IoL-al to it as the lodging bouse of liondou is to English life, or the boarding house to the land cf free Americans, but Occupying a totally different position in the social scale from either of these Institu tions. The Paris pension is distinctly and un deniably cosmopolitan; it ia even more, ii that it is democratic, or, &a the French themselves would say, republican. It is no respecter of persons or localities, for it is equally at home in a narrow street off from the old Faubourg St. Germain, or when it looks out on the beauty of the Champs tlysees. You will find it away out on the road to Passey, or just around the corner from the Boulevard des Italiens, and you will discover its inhabitants to be as di verse in aspect and nationality as its situ ations are various, but in spite of all this the pension will still maintain certain un alterable characteristics that pronounce it to be, all in all, a true Paris outcome of a distinctively Parisian need. In Paris there is not the same social gulf separating the dweller in a hotel from the resident of a pension that is to be found be tween those who live in hotels and board ing houses in the States, where the one may bo "in the swim," but the other never is, being debarred by the very fact of his exist ence within the tabooed walls. Here the reverse of this is true, rather, forpf the two the pension is the more highly estimated, and the better and more relined social ele ment, whether of resident foreigners, tour ists or native Parisians, will always be found located there in preference to the ho tels. Tho pension differs in grade according to the locality In which it is situated, and the amount of French 'gold you will part with in return for the shelter of its walls and the use of its accommodations will fluctuate with the same actuating cause, also a little with the nationality of the proprietor. If, as an American 1 should say, as do the Parisiana, a "States American" you neleot 8 pension presided over by a host of the same nationality, you may reconcile your self to paying for that privilege at a rate based upon "States" calculations. The cooking will be French, likewise the service and the servants. The principle of the household system will be entirely French in all probability, and very likely not so well executed as it would be under French management, but that will have nothing to do with the price, which will be truly American. If you de sire to test a combination of English and French tastes as illustrated in household life a very risky thing to attempt, by the way and you find a true son of Briton who is condescending to exist on the hated French soil, your condition will bo nearly as bad, but possibly not quite, if the house Is one much frequented by Englishmen, be cause the traveling Briton is deeply and in curably averse to parting with his money, and the English standard of prices is there fore lower than the American. As in any case, everything but the land lord or lady is sure to le French, it is far more satisfactory on the whole to dispose of yourself at a purely French pension to begin with, where the prices are much less and the comforts much greater than in the hybrid establishments. Boston Herald. It is probably littio known that the material damages resulting from railroad accidents in Germany have to be borne by the officials who on investigation are found to have caused them and from whose salaries they are gradually de ducted. It may be supposed the railway administrations are rarely fully compen sated. A case is known of an official, at present stationed at Berlin, who for 14 years has hud to submit to a deduction, but requires 10 years moro to work off liis indebtedness.

Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. : "Gentlemen: Last winter, my two girls, boy and wife -were taken 111. The doctors said they were poisoned by drlukhig water from an old well. The two girls failed to rally under the doctor's treatment. Eva, aged four years, fell away so she only weighed 18'A lbs.; coughed all the time and was helpless. Physicians said She Had Consumption. Lily, aged eight years, was nearly as bad as Eva but being older and stronger, held up a lit tle better.

The nuccenn of the filibuster nKiinstt the Bland nilver eiRnioi-.- g bill forced the Democratic ud vocntet oi the tnensure to invoke the de cree of a caucus, nnd Immediately after adjournment a caucus win held in tne hall of the house to consider tbe lit u .lion. The opening session of the senate was unusually devoid of Interest. Senator Hale presented a resolution to inrestifrate certain printing contracts, but the matter did not even create a discussion, although the resolution was adopted. WASHIXOIOJf. Feb. 21. The deadlock on the Bland seigniorage bill was not broken in the house. Rollcall followed rollcall nntil 4 o'clock, when, it being apparent that Mr. Bland con Id not muster a quorum on his proposition, he moved an adjournment. The high water mark yesterday was 170, nine short of a quorum. Washikgtox. Feb. 23. Less than 80 representatives were in their seats when the session of the house was opened. A long colloquy occurred between Speaker Crisp and Mr. Reed, and finally, on Mr. Bland's motion to order call of the house, Mr. Reed asked for tellers, and, having secured them, Mr. Bland de manded the yeas and nays, thus intro ducing a variation of the routine of fili bustering and slightly complicating the situation. Boon ufter the senate uet, Mr. Voorhees denied a statement mucle as to the action of Democratic mcmbeii of the finance committee who were represented as hav ing gone to the White House to consult with the president as to certain items in a bill. He declared that there was not the lightest trace of truth in tbe statement. Vashixgtox, Feb. 23. The house cele brated Washington's birthday by wrang ling over the deadlock caused by Bland's seigniorage bill with such unusual ex citement that the house had to be ad journed at S o'clock. v. Washington, Feb. 24. Every effort to secure a ijuoram for the passage of the Bland seigniorage bill having failed, the friends of that measure are willing to have another, and are circulating a peti tion to that end in the hope ot agreeing upon some plan that will relieve them from their present dilemma. Washington, Feb. 28. The battle over the Bland seigniorage bill will go merrily on in the house this week. Despite the many reverses Mr. Bland has met in his attempts to procure a quorum, he is as determined as ever to fight it out on this line, if it takes all winter. The senate has mnde bnt little progress during the past two weeks iu its efforts to clean up the calendar in advance of the forthcoming discussion of the tariff bill in the senate. Ift'ae opportunity is af forded, it will continue its work on the calendar during the present week. Lou of About 30,000. PnoviDKNCE, Feb. 26.
