NEWS AND CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1897.
3 IN MEMORIAM. Gertrude Helen Sheldon. From the Vermont Chronicle. We offer no biography, but only a humble tribute to our friend whose earthly presence we 00 sadly miss. Mrs. Gertrude Helen Sheldon had a unique ending to the story of human life. She wished her friends a Happy New Year in the morning and receiv ed the same welcome from a shining host in the evening. That one should leave her 'family when to human thought it would seem that they need ed her most appears like a dark mys tery of God. That life itself should end when only wellbpgun appears al most a mockery. Indeed it is to us all a tansled skein until we link the pres ent with the future. But some of us are comforted because we thiuk we heard a call saying that it was the Master's wish that our friend (should stand before Ilim clothed in garments of immortality and we think we saw her cross the river well nigh dry shod. It is our joy to thiuk she will never cross it again forever. We knew her as a friend and neighbor quiet, re tiring and loving peace. For the pet ty quarrels which divide families and make life in a country village a bur den she had no taste. Were nil like her many a rough place would grow smooth and we should pluck iloweis in paths now overgrown with thorns. To the last she remembered friends and gave New Year's gifts till tliny fell from her palsied hands, llr family was her throne and slu- was content to gain her queeuly honors there. We kriw her as a member ol our church. Declining health for bade her taking part in some of the rougher activities of church li 'e, but her heart was always with us. Some serve who only stand and wait. It was three years ago when she shrink iuglv came forward as one who would be known as a member of God's family. When the anniversary came around we stood in tearful silence beside her bier. The regard in which our friend was held was shown by the quick response of sympathy which came unbidden from the whole community. Delegations from the church, the Masonic fraternity, and the Woman's Relief Corps, accompa nied the body to the residence of her father, Hon. Carlos N'oyes in Mon is ville, aud there in the old home we bid the long good-bye. Refoie the week had passed her sister who had twined flowers about the casket, met her iu the light aud together they be gan to study the wonders of eternal life. "We spend our years as a tale that is told." The beauty and con eolation is that the story will be continued. E. J. it. jjwanton, Vt. A STOLEN MATCH. The Daughter of a Prominent Verinonter 31 al l ies the Man of Her Choice. Col. Myron M. Parker of Washing ton, D. C., has maDy friends in this city and in Vermont and is well known throughout the country. His friends here have been very much sur prised to learn that Col. Parker's daughter was married to Horace H. Burdette last May. The young groom is ot the farm of W. W. Bur dette & Son and is well known in Washington. The fact of the mar riage has only just leaked out, aud, at present, some of the members of the immediate families are still ignor ant of the details of the event. The Parkers aud the Burdettes are near neighbors and reside in preten tious editics on Vermont avenue. It was no secret that there was an at tacbment between Miss Hattie Park er and Horace Burdette. They were frequently in each others society, and people for whom these little affairs possesB an especial charm, predicted long ago that a match was not far distant. Nevertheless, they will be quite as much surprise as were the members of the respective families to learn the that young people were wed ded last spring. Miss Parker is a charming and at tractive young lady, while Mr. Bur dette is not only a successful young business man but is extremely popu lar in social circles. So far as is known, there was no objection ou either side to the marriage, and the impression is that the young people had the knot tied in such an informal manner merely for the sake of ro mance. Miss Parker's friends in Ver mont wish her many years of matri monial felicity. Burlington Daily New8.

The West field correspondent of the Newport Express writes that paper as follows concerning the Johnson Normal and the excellent work done there : Quite a delegation from this place went to Johnson last week to attend the graduation exercises at the Nor mal school and to see four more of V outfield's most promising daughters graduate. The class consisted of 18 young ladies, all of whom graduated with honors. The examination board pronounced it the brightest class that has been examined at any of our Nor mal schools for a longtime. The hall was very prettily decorated with the class colors, pink and green, and thegraduates were attired in costumes for the occasion of these colors, and wore white gloves and slippers and carried flowers. An eye wit ness says they looked very pretty and present ed a fine appearance when they marched into the hall to the music of Johnson cornet band. Class parts were assigned to each member of the class, but they thought it best to have a sneaker and engaged Prof. Walter E. Howard of Middlebury college, who gave a splendid address on the nubj ct "True Socialism." Supt. M. S. Stone, and Prin. Hunker of Peai ham Academy were also pres ent aud made short addresses. The class motto. which struck us as being a. very interesting and appropriate one, '-(bit of the Life of School Into the School of Life." The graduation exercises were l hursday aiternoon and in the evening the class gave a reeptiou, which was followed by a concert and promenade, the Johnson and turniseii music tor the occasion. The young ladies Irom this town graduated are Misses Ada Brown, Dollie .Trumpass, Helen Wakefield and Ruth Wright. Sarah Dixon and Grace Chaffee are standing well in their classesand will finish the course in one or two t,jrms. Although, the Johnson Normal is the best one in the state, and th only one having a training school for teachers, Presi dent Bunker of the State Board of Education savs there is to be a de cided im pro v merit in this school in the near luture. 1 here will tie a higher standard required for en trance and, nt no distant day. one will probably be obliged to be a gradaa le of a high s-chool in order to enter. Spitixt; field's Elephant. Spi ing fiVll evidently has an elephant on her hands in the shape of a partially completed electric road. The town was asked to take $30,000 of the stock, the sale ot $100,000 being suilkient to complete theroad. Town bonds were not required until the cats were running. 1 he town did as agreed and purchased the 130,000. Of the remaining $70,000, about $2o, 000 has been purchased by citi zens and others, and now the road is stalled, no one wishing to invest fur ther. The latest proposal is that the town guarantee theiutereston $100, 000 at live per cent, for twenty ears to rini-h up the load. The people naturally object, tor the money to be thus paid is to be raised by taxation, necessitating the mortgaging of the entire taxable prop -"ft, v of the town, and then there is no certaiutv that the road when complettd will ever make running expenses, to say noth ing of dividends on stock. Twenty two per cent, of the railroads in New England pay no dividends. Death of Dronson Hopkins. From Adrian (Mich.)

Fifty-two Specimens of Fish in Vermont. Somethimg lor the anglers' season of rumination may be extracted from the report of the United States com missioner of fish and fisheries for 180(5. It is a little pa mphlet of less than 30 pages, containing an anno tated list of the fish known to in habit the waters of Vermont. The paper is based chiefly upon observa tions and collections made in July, 1894, in the interest, of 1 he national museum. The investigation showed that the Vermont waters contained 52 specimens of fl-.il. Previous to the investigations made that year the waters of the state were known to contain 48 specimens, listed by Rev. Z idock Thompson, Vermont's historian. Mr. Thompson's investi gation was made over 50 years ago and was done with great care. The pamphlet contains many extracts from Mr. Thompson's observations which will be of interest to all ang lers. The list of game-fish is large, but the investigations tell a sad story of depleted waters, caused by refuse f-om mills aud olsM'ueting dams. Trout and bass and longe, abound in certain waters, white fish hold their own, but the salmon, which in the old days made ripples in the river by their migrations, are disappearing.
