That a few inches of snow could make such a visible differ ence in business and traffic as must have been discernable to the most unobserving even during the early hours of Monday morning, would seem improbable. But so it was. Teams loaded with lumber, tan bark, wood, etc., before noon began to arrive in and pass through the vil lage, cutters were flying about and on all sides there were signs of alert ness, activity and bustle. For the lumbermen the season is just begin ning, and realizing a good thing they will "push it along." Rt. Rev. Bishop A. C. A. Hall of Burlington presented a powerful dis course Sunday morning, taking for his text Luke 2: 52. The speaker . presented Christ's life as the exalted, ideal example of duty to family, duty to friends, duty in public, work, of prayer and of suffering, dwelling earnestly on His ability to sympa thize as man with man in all that comes to vex and annoy in any of these different phases of life. Es pecially did he linger on the sasred ness and sanctity of the home, the family the fountain head of all so ciety, municipal, state and national. The sermon throughout was strong, practical, eloquent. Rev. Dr. W'm. J. Han is of Rutland asmfed ithe Bishop,,,,., ; iti iuc tfi v luta. v J The well-known and popular Shep nrd Family will appear at town hall Fiiday evening of this week.

Several new features have been added to their programme since they were here last. Popular prices. Tickets nca on sale at Foss' drug store.' A paIT',' of the proceeds are to be used to pay for thesidewalk in front of the church. A good cause. Turn out and give them a full house. The Eastport, Me., Sentinel, has the following con cerning the Shepard Family concert; One very interesting feature of the week's entertainment was the charming concert given by the Shepard Family on Wednesday evening. Tho family consists of the lather, mother and live children, the latter being very talented musically. Little Flossie, aged five, is very cunning and attractive and ber little eongs, etc., add much to the entertain ment, and a lover of the violin cannot bnt admire Miss Laura's skill in playing that in strument. The entertainment is first class in every respect and those who attend cannot fail be interested and to feel amply paid for their outlay. If there is any one thing more than another on which Col. Edward B. Sawyer particularly prides himself, it is punctuality in ketping an appoint ment. If he agrees to be at any eertir tain place at a given time, he is sure to be there, prompt to a minute. "The best laid plans" but never mind; anyhow, arrangements were recently made by the Colonel to hold an important hearing here on the 11th day of January before Judge U. R. Start of Bakertfield. The ap pointed day arrived, balmy and mel low, with no sign of impending dis aster, and promptly on time Judge Start, Lawyer Monteith of Johnson and other interested ones assembled, cocked and primed for a legal scuffle; but the Colonel was invisible. All was in readiness, and still the Colo nel lingered and assembled not. An investigation was instigated, dis closing the fact that he had skipped from town tor the day and that he was chasing the ever fleeting bread, butter and molasses through the jungles of Fairfield or thereabouts. Mr. Monteith returned home dis gusted, the Judge passed the day in quiet meditation on the inscrutable ways of the legal fraternity, and the Colonel on returning home and learn ing of the misdemeanor he bad com mitted in forgetting so completely his appointment, immediately en gaged upon the task of hitting Rn explanation which should satisfy alt concerned.
