NEWS AND CITIZEN, THURSDAY, JULY 25, 1895.
4 News and Citizen, MORRISVILLE AND HYDE PARK. L. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. Senator Roger Q. Mills does not attempt to assert that the Demo crats will sweep the country for free trade next year. He only observes mildly that in his estimation the De mocracy will get a licking slightly less tremendous than it did in 1894. The President's third daughter has been named Marion a most sensible and pleasing name; pleasing to every body even the people of Marion, Mass., where Mrs. Cleveland spent one summer, and also to the old Irish lady who insists that it is a compli ment to the many "Mary Anns'' amoDg her people. Ordinarily it would seem that Bos ton, after taking the excellent care she did of the multitudes who flocked there to the recent Christian Endeavor gathering, would want a rest and cry bold up. But not in the least wearied by that immense gathering, she is al ready making preparations for the Knight Templars conclave, and will give them a like royal reception. Bos ton never does things by halves. Say what you may about the bi cycle and its excessive use, here comes a good word for it from New Jersey. Having good roads in all directions, the state is resorted to by bicycle riders. But the keepers of roadside saloons complain that they receive but little patronage from these tour ists. They claim that while the bi cycle creates an appetite, it does not create a thirst; hence the cyclist usually eats a big dinner, but he sat isfies his thirst with water. There fore the hotel man complains because there is so little of that which pro duces big revenues called for by the bicycle rider. Connecticut spends each year $1, 500,000 upon its highways, yet so little is done towards permanent im provement that, despite this large outlay, the roads are not much im proved. Other states, including Ver mont, spend .large sums in this same way. Not until some regular method is adopted and planned, can the roads be permanently improved. Ver mont is slow in reaching this method, but every year shows the folly of bap-hazard repairing and we believe the time is not far distant when this etate will adopt a regular plan re garding the repairing of its roads the chief of which will be that which leads to permanent, not temporary, improvements. The papers last week contained a etatement that ex-President Harri son, in an interview, stated that he was not a candidate for the Presi dency and did not want the office again. Later comes a rumored de nial of this statement friends of the General claiming he never made it. The time is drawing near for items of this kind to be thrown out, and the truth of these articles should be verified before beiDg given to the pub lic. General Harrison is not a talk ative man and therefore we are hall inclined to believe that the state ment originated in the brain of some over-anxious reporter and did not come from the ex-President. If it did, however, the country knows that he meant what he said and that he was not "talking through his hat." General Harrison is not given to saying things he does not mean. The old vets doubtless have it as fresh in their minds as if it occurred but yesterday ; Btill when we recall that thirty-four years ago last Sun day was the first battle of Bull Run fought even those who participated in it will hardly believe that time has fled so rapidly. What a change has taken place since then 1 How many of those who were prominent in na tional affairs then have "passed over to the silent majority," and how many active in the busy events of to day were then unborn or children of tender years I How the grand old nation has prospered and grown I Is there anybody who will say to-day that this battle or any of the battles of those days, has not made men more patriotic and stronger in their devotion to the nation? As time flies on it is well to pause and think over the stirring events ot the sixties. We are the better citizens for so doing. The report of the superintendent of the Military Academy at West Point on the result of the June examina tions, shows that out of ninety-nine cadets examined iorty only succeeded in passing satisfactorily. The lawn mower is a good thing j0t ' " Takes Two to Make a Trade. It has been reported, perhaps falsely, that some of the canny English man ufacturers complain that the wages paid by them are morethan they can afford'and that they, therefore, favor the cheaper standard of 6ilver as the surest method of reducing the wages of English laboring men. This idea may have occasionally found a dreamy lodgment on this side of the Atlantic; but here, in a free country, such pinching by artfully lowering the standard of moDey could not be enforced. An old neighbor of mine, a good deacon, as well as a good judge and lover of horses, once told me that he sonietiaie3 made a good horse trade before he got up in the morning, but found, after he got up that the other fellow wouldn't agree to it. When the greedy employers get up in the morning after the free coinage of silver, they will not find shoemakers, weavers, and iron found ers ready to agree to a reduction of their wages by a bogus standard of money. Senator Morrill. Corn ami Cotton. Cotton and corn are the two great American staples, and the ,'two in which theJJnited States stands easily at the head, not only of all countries, but ol all countries combined. The total cotton supply of the world, figured on the basis of bales of 400 pounds each, is about 12,000,000 bales, and of this amount the United States produces about 9,000,000 bales, or two-thirds of the whole amount. The crop here attained the highest figures before the war in 1860, when it was 4,G00,000 bales of 470 pounds ; 1892 was the best year for cotton since, the crop being 9, 000,000 bales of 470 pounds. The corn acreage 01 the United States for 1894 is 63,000,000 acres, and the total product 1,200,000,000 bushels, or the value of about $600, 000,000. The great corn year was 1889, with a crop of 2,100,000,000 bushel; 1891 followed with 2,000, 000,000 bushels. In 1892 and 1893 the figures were about the same 1, 600,000,000 bushels. Compared with the value of the-corn and cotton crop, the other agricultural produc tions of the United State3 occupy a subordinate position, the value of the wheat crop being $225,000,000, oats $214,000,000, potatoes $91, 000.000, barley $27,000,000, rye $13,000,000 and buckwheat $7,000 000. Two supprises because of the dif ference in value compared with ordinary public expectations are hay and tobacco. The hay crop of the United States amounted last year to $459,000,000 in value; the tobacco crop, on the other hand, amounted to only $27,000,000. The last year preceding (1893) the tobacco crop was 50 per cent greater, and con siderably more than half of it came from two states, Kentucky and Ten nessee. Kentucky stands at the head of the tobacco states. Pennyslvania is at the head of those in the North. Connecticut comes next; New York is fourth. State Finances. Advance sheets of State Treasurer Field's annual statement of the finances of Vermont for the past fiscal year shows the total expense of legislature of '94 to have been $58,815.04. The payments into the state treas ury by towns of all profits upoa the sales of liquors, in excess of 10 per cent, which law was passed last year, amounted to but $514,36, as many towns have reduced theselling prices, so that the profit will not exceed that figure. There probably will not be as large an excess next year, as a number of towns did not expect the law ta be retroactive. It was dis cussed very largely during session as a measure of large income to the state. The total expenses of the state for the past year were $683,803.67, and the treasurer estimates the income for the coming year from corpora tion and state taxes at $520,000. Neatly Put. A prominent liter ary man who has passed several summers among the Green Mountians of Vermont, and who is there again this year, sent this happy reply to the note of a city friend who asked about Vermont's charms : " No sum mer visitor to Vermont draws a blank. Every stranger within her gates who perseveres is certain to secure a mild meerschaum brown complexion; to experience rare en joyment in doing nothing or every thing except deep-sea work, and to go home with a storage battery fully recharged with ozone. One ticket a railroad pasteboard ad mits to the combined shows, and all who desire can remain to witness Vermont's autumn glories, which brings to a close the season's varied entertainment. Do not forget the date and place this summer and Vermont." Boston Journal. A count just taken shows that there are now stored in the vaults of the United btates mint at Philadel phia 40,999,367 silver dollars. They are packed away just as they were coined and all efforts to get them into circulation have been futile. The people do not want them. They are willing to take the paper certificates issued to represent them, because these are interchangeable with green backs and are redeemable in gold. But the silver dollars themselves the government has to keep, issuing in their stead what is practically a gold currency of twice their value. And still there are those who profess to believe and loudly proclaim that the people are crying for the free coinoce of silver into an indefinite number of these same discredited dollars: "J The year ia on the home run now. . A Hermit Who tame from Vermont. A curious old character died in Benton, Mo., recently, lie went by the name of D. S. Herbert. On his death bed he acknowledged that his true name was Dewit C. Ilurlbut; that he was a son of Hiram L. Hurl but of Grand Isle, Vt., and a member of the Seventh Regiment Vermont Volunteers. He furthermore 6aid that he was once in a crowd where a man had been shot, and a friend ga ve him $1000 to leave so as to give the impression that he had done the deed. He spoke of his daughters in Denver, but there is no means of tracing them. He was a hermit in his habits. Vermont's Oldest Woman. In a tiny farmhouse ou the shore of a beautiful lake in South Shafts- bury and near North Bennington, lives Mrs. Honora McCarthy, who, if she lives till next February, will be 106 years old. fehe was born in Cork parish, Ireland. She married Dennis McCarthy in the place of her birth when a young woman, and had two children. She came to this country many years ago. Her daughter Abi gail died in Ireland and her son Den nis, who is about 70, owns the farm where his mother lives. Honora's father and mother both lived to be over 100 years old, and both died in the place of her birth. She was one of 14 children, and is the only sur vivor ot the family. She occasion ally walks the whole distance to Ben nington, five miles, to visit her grand daughter, and is a constant attend ant at the Sunday service at the Roman Catholic church in North Ben nington, walking a mile each way. She is a vegtarian and eats no meat, but is fond of tea, bread and crack ers. Good Bicycle Rules. A surgeon gives, in an English magazine, some excellent rules for bicycle riding : 1. Never ride within half an hour of a meal, which means either before or after. 2. Wheel the machine up any hill the mounting of which on the wheel causes any real effort. 3. See that the clothing round the stomach, neck and chest is loose. 4. Have the handle bar sufficient ly raised to -prevent stooping. 5. Be as sparing as possible of taking fluids during a long ride. Rinsing the mouth thoroughly, as well as gargling with cold water, will quench the thirst as well as, if not better than, taking fluid into the stomach in large quantities. G. Except the wind, roads, etc., be favorable, never ride more than ten miles an hour, except for very short distances. 7. Never smoke while riding. Attention to these points will tend to relieve the pressure on the right side of the heart, brethlessness will largely be prevented, and even per sons with certain forms of heart dis ease may ride with safety, y The l'.allooii Sleeve Must Go. Much interest attaches to the ru mor which comes from London that the Princes of Wales and her daugh ters have been lately seen in public in gowns with small sleeves and narrow skirts. This bit of intelligence does not necessarily clinch the doom of the balloon 6leeves and the letter A skirts, but it will tend to make pru dent investors wary of locking up much capital in these varieties. Of course the balloon sleeve must go presently. When fashionable moth ers began to put them on little boys' legged night-gowns it became ap parent that the taste for them had come to be an extravagance, and could not last. But it will be a shock to miss them. Doubtless we will find our friends much changed when we get down to their real selves again. Some that have grown stout wont shrink as much as we expect, and others who wore away in the hard times perhap3will shrink much more. But let us have the facts at any coHt, especially as there must be material enough in the present sleeves and skirts to cut over into anything con ceivable, and have enough left over to clothe a child. Harper s Weekly. The Nicaragua Canal. It is understood that the govern ment commissioners sent out to in vestigate the Nicaragua canal, who are now on their way home, will make a favorable renorfc on the en. terprise. They will give as their unanimous conclusion tnat tne Uol orado bar, which has caused so much trouble at the entrance to Grevrnwn harbor, can be partially removed by dredging, and a permanent opening through it maintained. A slight chancre in the Dronosed rniir nf t.hn canal will be recommended, owing to a belief that several serious obstacles exist on the route as heretofore laid down. The commissioners think that the work of constructing the canal can be ended in six or seven vears. but that the total cost will considerably exceed the limit set by tne projectors, and tnat $u.u,uuiv 000 will not be an excessive figure. The Vermont legislature havinc granted the charter for the reorgan ize company, ail vermonters have a special reason lor hoping to see this great enterprisa become a suc cess. rhoenix. . , A death from unusual cirenmsfnn cos isreported from New York state. me other night a farmer dreamed that he was attacked by a dog. In his sleep he kicked at the canine, and his foot went throno-h n. winrlnw The glass cut him, and blood-poisoning did thpjrest. The moral of the story, if moral there is, is that one either should avoid the stuff that dreams are made of, or should be careful not to fall asleep within kick ing distance of a pane of glass.

On last Thursduy evening the citins of Stowe had the pleasure of listening to a band that thirty years ago was the leading or chestra of this section of the state, Robin sons Band and last week was the first time for tweuty years they had played together. Two of the former members, Tarrent Robin Bon and H. G. Thomas, both of whom went to Minneapolis a score of years ago, and there played in the best orchestras of that city, are now in Stowe for the summer, to gether with Nat. llobiuson tbe old leader, and Warren Seaver of the original band, as sisted by C. P. Scribner and L., W. Buzzell, held a reunion and dance at the Green Moun tain Inn, to which old and young erei nvitej. About twenty-five couples took part in the dance and the hull was well filled with spec tators. Daucing was in duledin until the "wee sma' hours," and it only needed the presence of Sam Kaiser, with his Bass Viol, for ono to easily imagine hn was twenty-five years younger, as most of the company pres ent on this occasion had danced after the sume music that number ofyears ago. Every one testifies to a splendid time, and the an nouncement that this was the first of three such gatherings to be held within a short time, was received with much pleasure. The Event in Poetry, Wrapped in the sunlight and beauty, Clad in its verdure of green, Bounded by mountains of sculpture, With the rippling river between, Sparkling with dews of the twilight, Curtained at night by the Btars, Abounding with birds of the foreBt That pause in their wearisome flight, And seeking a place of refuge Descend to the beautiful sight; To this Paradise Laud of Heavenly light, To this Garden of Eden, called Stowe, The birth-place of scientists long laid low, And many now living, return to their youth, To the old home of long ngo, Come back to the hauuts of their childhood. Those who came from the far-away city, . To pay one more visit to their loving friends, Invited the townspeople to mingle among them In the gay festivities on which life depends. Tbe wheel once started, each one did his best, And the message was carried north, south, east and west. All people nocked to tho Green Mountain Iun To trip the light fantastic toe; And then rejoiced to think they had been, For 'twas the celebrated band of long ago That furnished themusicto gluddenthe heart And made each and every one take a part. The names of this famous band here we give: Th9 Honorable Robiuson Brothers that live Far away from each other in their ripe old age; Their history, written, would fill many a page. And then Mr. Heaver, a rcsideut of Stowe, Of whom all have heard and many may know. Mr. Thomas of Minneapolis ccmrs next, Tho fua in bis life would make some vexed. Dr. Bingham for years hns been one of fame, But last Thursday night was a child again ; He tripped with ease over the hall And was as light as a bounding ball. All were pleased to have the Burlington ladie9 participate Who invited us to their city to reciprocate. Mrs. Gillette and her lovely little daughter Had a great deal of pleasure dancing together. Dr. Barrows, in his own gracious way, Tried to have everyone merry and gay ; And his efforts to have each one join in the dance Were appreciated by those who had had not a chance. That tbe man with the bald head and big toe Enjoyed himsi It, all ought to know. Me said he liked to dance, "Yes sir," Excepting the "waltz," that made his eves " blur." And the most they seemed td be doing When they llnw around so, Was to get Irom the place Where they already were I Whs Camp and Miss Perkins were the gayest of all, And we decided that they were the belles of the ball. May we meet many more times in a similar way, And we hope each will be there without delay Rut let all remember, as through life we suit, That the Over-ruling Powerdoth prevail, And soon some one of them will be called from the throng. But we will all meet again with the hunter's wild song. There the strains of music from the Robinson band Will rise higher and higher in harmony grand, Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report i&B&OI&TEKV PURE Until all the nngels around the throne will stand And re-echo those notes with a joyful sount Until the air with gladness abound. As each one of us enters tbe Golden Gate We will join the chorus, and may we tot be late, For the breezp will bear it away o'er the eea, And soon 'twill be loBt in eternity. A Participant.

He was town clerk nine years and postmuster nine years. On the road to Lake Griffith in Danbay, a man came upon a motbtr lynx mid two cubs playing in the road. Old Lady Lynx showed her teeth, growled and advanced on the man with the bubit s following suit at a respectful distance. For a moment or two war seemed inevitable. Then the man took off his coat, waved it in the face of the lynx family and succeeded in keepintrmndam lynx from spring ing upon him until he neared civilization, when they disappeared in the woods. Rutland bad a genuine sensation last week, when a full grown deer galloped through her main streets with a crowd at its heals. When first seen the deer was runuing down South Main street, insane with flight. A man named Barrett and a companion finally cornered him, but the deer showed fight and knocked them right and h ft. He got stuck in a mud hole, howtVir, nnd after a terrible struggle, was made a captive and taken into a barn. He died a little later in the evening, not from injuries received, but of pure fright. Cost of Raising Wheat The con solidated returns from over 4000 ex perts and 30,000 farmers to the Ohio department of agriculture show that the average cost of raising an acre of wheat in New England is about $20, in the Middle states $18, in the Southern states $11, iu the Mountain states $10. and in the Pa cific states $12. In New England an acre of corn costs $28, in the Middle states $21, in the Southern stutes $12, in the Western states $11, in the Mountain states $13, and in the Pa cific states $18. The total average cost of an ncre of wheat is $11.48, and of corn $11.71. The average report placed the average values of wheat at $0.10 per acre and corn at $8 21 per acre, which dots not, how ever, include the straw and fodder. For more than a hundred years the Shakers have been studying the reme dial properties of plants. They have made many discoveries, but tl.elr great est achievement was made last year.
