The present case, the Rock well show, is by no means the isolat ed case that some have claimed.

EASTEU SERVICES. Easter Sunday came with quite an elaborate observance in our churches. Special attention to the song service produced very interesting and suc cessful results at each church. Ihe Congresrational church , was very tastelully decorated with potted plants, with a white cross in the cen ter. Prof. Whipple sang with the choir, and Mrs. Sevmour took his place at the organ, playing with fine effect. Ihe pastor s sermon was upon the theme Immortality. The evening service was well attended and consist ed of selections by the choir and in dividual members, recitations and songs by the children, and remarks by the pastor as well as a further de scription of Jerusalem by Mr. Slay- ton. At the Methodist church Rev. Mr. Nanton preached an interesting ser mon appropriate to Easter. In the evening the church was filled to over flowing with an audience interested in the Easter concert. Chorus singing recitations, vocal and instrumental selections were rendei-ed, making a successful and enjoyable evening ser vice. Rev. Dr. Booth preached a very in teresting sermon upon the Renurrec tion, founded on the text Luke 24 : 2 A chorus choir aided in the service and the sacrament of the Lord's supper was celebrated. Owing to the evening concerts at the other church es, it was thought best to defer the Easter Sunday-school concert until next Sabbath evening. THE SPECIAL TOWN MEETING. Saturday's special town meeting called out an attendance about one half in number of that of the regular March meeting, and was made up in the majority of voters outside of the corporation. With the meeting for mally opened by Moderator Powers, Mr. Doty again stated his views in connection with the new cemetery, and in favor of taking the cemetery trom the hands of the Mslectmen, where it was temporarily placed, and putting it in the charge of a board of Cemetery Commissioners to be elect ed, whereupon Mr. Brigham objected. Several other gentlemen offered a word in favor, and Mr. Doty backed up bis stated ideas by reiteration, but ever and anon and sometimes of tener, Mr. Brigham held the floor, and his hearers were refrecfieti ly the reading of exceedingly existing pas sages of the law, supplemented by quite extensive argument unfavor able to the creation of a Board of Commissioners. Motion was made by Mr. Whitney that the cemetery be taken from the hands of the Select men and placed as aforesaid, and the motion was carried with a rush, there being but two dissenting voices heard. Proceeding to the election of Com missioners, G W. Doty, C. H. Slocum, G. M. Powers, Dr. E. J. Hall and G. W. Clark were elected, for terms of five, four, three, two and one years respectively. Mr. Doty thanked the voters for their action and promised a careful, wise and practical treat ment of the matter in hand, and that so far as he was able to direct there should be no drawing upon the town treasury. He also stated that a place in the center of the elevation in the cemetery had been reserved with the hope that at some time the town of Morristown might take action in regard to a monument to the fallen soldiers who went to the front from this town. If the town should at some future time wish to do this, he would personally give $100, and would guarantee a considerable amount more from survivingsoldiers and patriotic citizens. The town is surely to be congratulated upon the outcome of this meeting. It means that the new cemetery is in the hands of public-spirited men who will take an interest in it, and as fast as pos sible make it what it is destined to be, one of the finest burial places in Vermont. In regard to other articles in the warning, Mr. Barrows was unani mously elected highway Commission er, and it was voted to exempt from taxation for the term specified in the statutes any additional machinery or capital that may be put into I. A. White & Co's bakery plant. The proposition to purchase a team for the use of the town was discussed at length, resulting in a vote to instruct the Selectmen f;o purchase one good team, if in their judgment it Was deempd best. No further business npppnrino-, the meeting ad journed. TRE OLP MAN'S SOLILOQUY. The following bit of verse comes fresh from the pen of our disappoint ed bridegroom of seventy-nine sum mers, relating his recent trying ex perience : I am an old man of seventy nine, I wanted a wife both good and kind ; I found a widow I thought would do, 1 thought (he was both jtiBt and true. We hadn't besn married but just one night, I found her ways were not just rite; And when we had been married junta week We quereld and jawed so we could not sleep. I found some fait about her bread, Because I hadn't a tooth in my head : Her prusts was hart, ('er hreijd was old, 'Tyyas enough tq make a mimstpr scold. And when I found J could not stay, laid my plands to Ri't away; Our honey-moon was sad and dry, went away and did not pry. Special Notice.

At the meeting of the Cong'l church of this place held last Thursday, the matter of selling the lot bought by the church some twenty years aero was discussed. The lot has been un occupied all these years, and it was argued by some thatit would be best to dispose of it and place the money at interest; others thought it better to hold on to the land, as it was the best location in the village for a cnurcn. a resolution that the lot be sold for $400 was defeated. EASTER OBSERVANCE. The Easter services at the church last Sunday were largely attended. The audience room was handsomely tlfmuied onil yOtcaratexl, showing that great labor had been spent in beautifying it for the occasion. The morning service consisted of an exer cise by the Sunday-school, which comprised responsive readings, reci tations, singing and short addresses. We do not believe that ever before in the history of the school has it given an exercise of this character where the parts have been so well taken and everything so admirably arrang ed. While each one did finely, we cannot refrain from making especial mention of the singing by the little ones. The song, "Lift up, O Little Children," was beautifully rendered. The training of the primary depart ment was in charge of Mrs. S. B. Waite, and she succeeded admirably in bringing out the voices. Brief addresses, appropriate to the occa sion, were given by H. M. McFarland and I). L. Griggs. For the success of the affair, much credit is due Mrs. N. G. Wood and Miss Adah Barber, who with an able corps of assistants spent much time in preparing the ex ercise. In the evening the meeting was also held in the upper room, and consisted of a service of song, followed with a very interesting address by Mr. Griggs, upon "God's Picture Gallery." Mr. Griggs is a pleasing, as well as forcible speaker, and was attentively listened to throughout. The services atthe Catholic church, which were appropriate to the day, drew a large attendance. The church was nicely trimmed and decorated and all the attendants entered heart ily and earnestly into the spirit of the occasion.

A. L. week. WATERVILLE j, Laraway was in Boston the past airfield, whore ho were visitini; in t week. A "MORRELL LIQUOR CURE." The meeting last Thursday eyening in the interest of the "Morrell Liquor Cure," was well attended. ).' L. Griggs of lirattleborp, the secretary, spoke of the evils of intemperance and gaye an apcount of the ways and methods of working by the in stitution. He also gaye a graphip description pf several, cures, effected by this treatment. As a result of Mr. Griggs' visit ft branch of the "Morrell Cure Company" has been esLublittliL-d bore, Tho necessary stock has been subscribed and as soon as the medicine arrives, business will be commenced. Dr. Genge is to be the physician in charge and any infor mation desired may be obtained of him or the secretary. Read the ad vertisement elsewhere, and watch it from week to week, as important an nouncements will be made therein. There are, doubtless, many in this county who are anxious to get rid of the liquor appetite, ant to them will this institute be of especial benefit;. From a pamphlet issued by the man agers of the cure, we take the fol lowing paragraph regarding the length of lime necessary tp effect q, cure; "Thp treatment for the liquor habit requires three weeks, the pa tient; takipg three injections a day. To cure the morphine habit takes from three to six weeks, according to the condition and trustworthiness of the patient. If the patient can be trusted, the cure is effected iq q short tinae. The tobacco habit is cured in two weeks, the second, week being home treatment. Prices and all other information may be obtained by addressing any of our institutes." We would add that the "Morrell Liquor Cure Company" is a legally incorporated concern, with a paid up cupital of $,0q(). The nUes for treqttnent are much lower than the '"Keeley" prices, and the fact that a patient may continue his daily voca tion while under treatment, gives it a strong advantage over other insti tutions.

An Honest medicine Hood's Sarsaparilla Was of Great Benefit After the Crip and for Dyspepsia and Rheumatism. "C. L Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.: "I will make a true statement of what Hood'f 6arsaparilla lias done for me. Some eight years ago I was troubled -with dyspepsia, and for three years 1 tried doctors, took many different kinds of medicine, and received no benefit I was so bad I could not cat half a cracker with out distressing me, and would soon spit it up. I Lost in Flesh from 180 pounds to 149 pounds. I frequently bad rheumatism, and was, I thought, pretty well used up. I bought a bottle of Hood's Sarsaparilla, without much faith of its doing me good. I soon found it was helping me and after taking three or four bottles, I could eat what I wanted, without distress. My ankle broke out with salt rheum. I began taking Hood's Sarsa parilla, after writing you about it. The swell ing has gone down and it is now well. I have also had the grip. Did but just pull through, being C5 years old. It left me in bad shape. I had Dyspepsia as Bad as Ever besides catarrh, which I never had before. Jly doctor told me I was all worn out, might patch up and live a year or two. I commenced to take Hood's Sarsaparilla and I am much bet ter. I have not bad rheumatism since I took Hood's5313 Cures the lirst bottle. Sly digestion is good and I am gaining in flesh. I think Hood's Sarsaparilla Is a good honest medicine. I recommend It to all my friends, for dyspepsia and rheumatism ana lor cleansing ine oiooo." .-. . j-hii.lips, Wardsboro, Vermont. Get HOOD'S.
