One of the first examinations made by the new board of Pension Exam iners here was the case of Charles A. Sanders of Morrisville, who was or dered before them.

After the midnight revelry had died away, it is very probable that Mor risville never saw a more quiet 4th of July.

A disgraceful scene, in which a certain town official uncorked the vials of his hatred and spite and poured, forth foul and blasphemous language in uuiimited quantities, occurred in the most public p trt of the village last Thursday evening. While it may have been "entertain ing" to a few, it certainly was dis graceful and insulting to ladies and passers-by who were compelled to hear it. We hope tha- good reputa tion of our village will not again be sullied with a like exhibition. The railroad commissioners have made a report regarding the removal of the depot at this place. They recommend that it be moved from the present location to the northerly side of the track and that it be done by Dec. 1 next. This decision has been reached after much persistency, and to Col. Sawyer isgreat creditdue for bringing it about. He has had the matter in charge for several years and his "keeping everlastingly at it" has at last secured a decision in favor of the community. We have no doubt that the' railroad offi cials will put the depot in good shape and give this place as good station accommodations as other points on the road now have. So much has. been said and done regarding this proposed transfer of the depot that we-gve thG.eomijQiiuonei3 report in lull elsewnere. On Sunday morning last while. Mr and Mrs. Joseph LaPage were driv ing on the No. Ilyde Park road they met with an accident which terminat ed very seriously for Mr. LaPage As they neared Cassius Gray's place the horse became restive at sight of two old valises directly in the road Mr. LaPage, thinking to get out of the buggy and quiet the animal, was just in the act pi rising lrom the seat as two gvpeieB i stepped suddenly from the bushes, and the horse wheeled completely around, over turning the carriage and spilling its occupants. Mrs. .Lai age escaped with a tew slight bruises but Mr. La- Page sustained a bad fracture of the crest of the left hip bone. He was carried to the house of Mr, Gray and later in the day brought home.' Drs Genge and Hall attended to the in jury and pronounced it a very dith cult break to set properly. The accident will confine Mr. LaPage for a long time, but the danger of in flammation over, there will be no question as to his ultimate fu'l re covery ot the use ot the limb.

"When in the course of human events" the settlement of dates back 100 years "it becomes necessary to" observe the anniver sary with festivities which shall al ways remain fresh in the hearts of air who share In them. Op the 1 Gth of jSpril, 1794, Ol iver Luce moved his family into what afterwards be came Stowe. and by what to-dav would seem a very primitive mode of conveyance. Having moved his fam ily and household effects from Hart- land, Tt., as far as Waterbury, he was forced to abandon big team for lack of road nnd resort to a hand sled to transport his family and goods to their destination. Follow- ; this event many more sturdy men with their families migrated thither, till on the second Monday in March, 1797, the town of Stowe was organized. The people of Stowe, having a iust pride in their town and being desir ous of honoring the memory of its found' r nnd all th long list of good and noblp men who have lived in and helped to make the town what it has been and now is, decided at its an nual town meeting to celebrate its centennial. This event will also com memorate the settlement of the old town of Mansfield (now a part of Stowe) which occurred after that of Stowe. A libtral appropriation was made and a commit tee appointed to arrange a programme and name a date for carrying out the same. The committee has already perfected an interesting programme aad decided upon Wednesday, August 8, as the date. It is especially designed to make the day attractive to all whose interests have ever been identified with the town. Speakers have been selected either from men of ability who have gone out from the town ami won distinction in their various fields or from time honored residents who, with no less ability, have al ways used thtfir taleatsjfor the bene-" fit of the town. On that day let all lend their pres ence and share the joys, being as sured that a hearty welcome awaits any who will join in honoring the day. -In due time a programme of the exercises will be issued. .; NORTH HYDE PARK.
