Ilutchins. lie had rallied from the slight injury received from a fall, consequently that was not the cause of his death. The sad news of the death of Mrs. Cora Tenney Buck, wife of Mr. Frank L. Buck of Minneapolis, Minn., was received on Friday last. She died on Thursday evening, the result of a surgical operation. All interested are asked to remem ber thepinafore rehearsal to-morrow, Thursday evening, at the home of Mrs. Warren. Next week we hope to be able to give the cast of the opera and the chorus in full.

Morrisville basket ball players go to St. Johnsbury on Friday of this week, Feb. 17, to play a return game with the St. Johnsbury Y. M. C. A. team. The Morrisville gymnasium team will be the same participating in the first game here, and they hope to meet the same players over there. It of course goes without saying that Morrisville Methodists will ex pect, at the hands of the coming ses sin of the Vermont Conference, the return of their pastor, Rev. M. S. Eddy, for his second year. The most interesting question just now prom ies to be, wno lor the new Presiding Elder? The Elmer Smalley property on Congress street is now owned by A.R.Campbell in exchange for the bitter's place on Maple ntreet. The late William Utton, at the time of his death, owned the Smalley place, and Mrs. Utton would now find it pleasant to be as near her sons on Maple street as the Campbell place. The record thus far of this lovely month of February has been almost beyond comparison. The snowstorm nt almost zero, which continued nil day and night Monday, gradually slipped into a blizzard, and thestorm of last Thursduy and Friday was easily outclassed. The railroad was particularly affected, as cuts were more easily filled t han in the preced ing storm. Ronds about town have more than been filled. ' Mr. Drowne, father of G. T. Drowne of the Currier it Co. store, is here from Peabody) Mass., on a visit. Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Robinson nnd daughter go in a few days to visit friends in New York City and Phila delphia. Mrs. II. It. Hardy, who went five or six weeks since to visit her brother in Connecticut, remains there for the present. Not very good weather for bicyc ling, but, a good time to have Dyke put the machine in order for next summer. Sunday morning t- nuerature went to twenty-six below. The tempera tun did not get up to z.to all day Saturday. The Ladies' Aid of the M. E. church will meet, at; the vestry Wednesday afternoon, to lie followed by the usual supper. Saturday b.'ing a bleak day and G. S. Houghton having free hot cnf'f'e on the docket, it was busy limes about t hat place. There is good reason to accept the long severe cold weather with good grace. It has in a large measuresue cessfully stamped out the grip. Frank Small, the well known clerk who recently completed his engage ment in t he Hall ov: Cheney drugstore, has a position in a Boston drug store. Mr. tmd Mrs. Feed Utton returned to Morrisville from Connecticut the last of last week and will soon be lo cated again in tie ir home on Maple street. Lawrence Palmer has graduated from hisolli, i ili-unnceiion at (lough ton's stoie and lionse, an 1 is now hoarding at II. D. Bryant's and go ing lo school.

The Academy students hi I 1 an en joyable soci il on Fridav evening. The event and the rtfreshments served ad came under the auspices of the senior class. Thurs lay's bleakness did not keep away the searchers for the festive bjan and spouse cake, and the Uni rsaiist, vestry was the sene of a i igoroiis attack. Harrison Dodge, who filled to rent his farm ns he had expected, vacated his home on Summer street, the last of last week, and moved back to the farm with his family. The J. C. Rockwell Dramatic Co., will appear at Morrisville all next week, giving nchnngeof play uightly. The troupe is well spoken of by those who have seen it lately. The U. V. M, boys will not give their concert here tuxt week ns has been announced, but probably they will appear later. The date cannot he given now. ns the postponed ar rangements are not completed. Notwithstanding the severity of the weather, the sixth annual gather ing and dinner held by the members of Lamoille Grange was well attend ed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Smith at Morristown Corners last Thursday afternoon. It was a good old-fashioned rally of friends and neighbors, with a jolly spirit ."float, and a feast of good things. It was an all day affair. A very light freight train going west about 2 o'clock Tuesday after noon was stalled in the enow just around the curve west of this sta tion. A trainman was sent back with a flag and to get the section men to go to the rescue with shovels. The blow continuing, as it did, 48 hours, or more, was very successful in pack ing down hard and fast whatever snow was in reach. One of the smaller items that will come into the warning and to be con sidered in town meeting a short time hence, is thequestion whether the fire men may be given the oceanional free use of town hall, provided they furn ish their own fuel and do the work necessary in caring for the hall. This is a matter which should not need very much argument to sustain at the hands of the voters. One of the busiest places in town is that hive of commercial activity, next door to the post-office, where the popular grocer, T. B. Ellis, is do ing an increasing business. Looking around there the other day aud see ing the great number of new things in foods and table delicacies,v8taples and luxuries ns much up to date as in many a city store, the mind went back to the now to beconsidered very primative style of grocery stock and business here in Morrisville only a few years since. The movement to close the stores for nn indefinite time at eight o'clock on every evening but Saturday, seems to have met with a very hearty re sponse thus far. Several dealers have not yet been interviewed on the sub ject, but the paper already signed by a largn number, indicates that the plan may be expected to carry. It is a plan that should go and t hereby shorten up the hours of a long day and evening a little. In case of enter tainments going on it will give mer chants and clerks a chance with other Iieopli. The many friends of Mrs. II. C. Fisk will be glad to know of her com fortable and improving condition, following an operation by Dr. Tenney of Granville, N. Y. A day or two since we were given a peep at IL Waite's round up of busi ness for the past year. The figures looked big without the use of a mag nifying glass and must be extremely satisfactory to the fellow that did the business. He has just got a raft of crated tin cans from Ohio, in w hich he will ship uewsenson'smaple.yrup. The Duplicate Whist Club will meet with Mrs. C. H. Slocuin Friday even ing of this week, at which time the gentlemen ore invited. All members of t he club who can nob be present with gentlemen fire requested to semi their regrets ns early as possible, so substitutes may tie secured. The Sub urban Whist Club was entertained Tuesday evening at the home of Miss Belle and Leon Gates. The club will meet next week with Mr. nnd Mrs. Geo. Tillotson. The home of George Smith at Mor ristown Corners, where was held the Grange anniversary last week is one of the most interesting and substan tial abodes iu town. Therelichunter would there revel in great fire-places with andirons, cranes, etc., pewter dishes, old furniture and many things that remind one of the past includ ing hugh brass door knockers, latches, etc. This substantial brick house is nearing seventy years old but seems as good ns ever. An Important Deal. Practically assured but not entire ly closed up, ns we understand it, is the purchase by II. A. Slay ton of all the Saflord water power, and mill property, including grist mill and wood-working shops. With such a transfer ns this consmipitcd and tak en in hand bv Mr. Slnyton. with his well-known ent erpriseand push, a new era for the business is nt hand. A Pretty Home AVeddiny;. In appropriate keeping with t In spirit of St. Valentine's day, was the marriage of Albert II. Slavton. son of Henry A. Slaytou, and Miss Maud Kellogg, daughter of Rev. nnd Mrs. Geo. N. Kellogg, which was solem nized at 4 o'clock yesterday afhr noon. Because of the illrn-ss'of Miss Neiiie; the ycungest daughter of . and Mrs. Kellogg, the event took place at the home of the groom, on Park street. The father of the bride performed the marriage ceremony in tin impres sive, yet happy manner and gave the bride away. Just about 50 invited guests were present. The window shades weredrawn and the electricity turned on. Miss Augusta Little of Winooski wns seated at the piano and played the wedding march as the young couple appeared, preceded by Miss Addie Edwards and Miss Josie Slayton as ushers. The ceremony completed the couple was introduced to the guests as Mr. and Mrs. Slayton, aud then there was a rush of friends with congratula tions. Light refreshments were then served, the bride perlorming the us ual ceremony of cutting the bride's cake. At one end of (he room a large table was well filled with nn ele gant array of gifts from the friends present and absent. The newly married couple drove to Waterbury, taking train for Boston, thus fooling a large party of young people who had gathered at the sta tion here with numerous bags of rice. A pleasant feature of the event was the use of a handsomely engrossed bound book, in widen the officiating clergyman made record of the event, with two special witnesses signing, and in whicheach guest was requested to register. Oa their return some time next week, Mr. and Mrs. Slay ton will take up their abode at Zara Griswold's pleasant residence on Main street. HYDE PARK. Mrs. C. S. Page is spending a few days in Boston. Miss Anna Li I ley is home from the U. V. M. for a few days. Judge Kelley and family have got moved into their new home. Chester Leach, M. I), hopes to be, was up from college over Sunday. Millard Wiltshire, was up from Barre last Saturday calling on old friends. ' II. M. McFarland spent several days last week at Troy on banking business. The Odd Fellows will work the first degree on two "live" candidates Fri day evening next. Moes Goodhue spent Sunday at East Franklin, where his wife is very sick with the grip. Gov. Page goes to Boston to-night to ntteud the monster Home Market Club banquet to-morrow. Major Willard of Burlington made one of his semi-occasional visits to thU place the first of the week. Tho trains were greatly "discom bobulated" Tuesday by the storm. Tiie express going west reached here about 4 p. in., some six hours late, aud going east at .).30 p. tn. There was no mail train from the west and that from the east went through in the dead hours ol the night. Selectman Manning has another boy in his family a bright little fellow putting in an appearance there last Sunday. The cold weather Saturday and Sunday froze up the pipes at the Academy and made things decidedly frigid there Monday. Owing to the severe gale Tuesday business was suspended at the Acad emy for the day. School will be held Saturday to make up for the loss. Sunday was the coldest day thus far this winter thermometers indi cating in the morning from 20 to 24 below zaro. In a number of places water pipes were frozen. Capt. Waite willattend an OddFel lows' district meeting nt Barton to night and another at St. Johnsbury to-morrow evening. Col. McFarland will also attend the latter. A social "prom" is announced to come off at the town hall, Friday evening. The Academy students have the matter in charge and no doubt a good time will be the result. There was an addition of flute and cornet to the instrumental music at the church last Sunday. Messrs. Crane and Foss rendered good ser vice and the congregation hopes they have come to stay. J. II. Macomber, a former school teacher here, but now a prominent attorney in Burlington, was in town Monday. He came up on professional business, but had to devote quite a little time to shaking hands with old friends. A neat four page roster has just been got out of this office for Sterling Lodge, I. (). 0. F. It contains a list of officers, 'committees, etc., and a complete roll of the lodge, which now numbers 8.1. The lodge was organ ized in 1S90. Preston Denio took a "header" from the roof of his house Tuesday. He wns shoveling snow off and slip ped, coming down onto the veranda and then bounding eff into a snow drift, where he alighted "right side up" with the grace and dignity of an expert acrobat. Judge Sherwin received word last week of the death of his brother-in-liw, Norman Baker at Vacaville, Cal , which occurred Jan. 20. Mr. Baker was a brother of Mrs. Sherwin ' r!u wear- west so -toI years ago, where he met with financial success, lie w as 83 years old. Don't forget the oyster supper, to be followed by the comedy-drama, Saturday evening, Feb. 23. The "Rebekahs'' will spare no pains to make the event a very pleasant af fair. The small sum of 35 cents for supper, with a free ticket to the en-" tertainment, will be charged. Every body invited. C. II. N'owell of Boston, accompan ied by Mrs. John Hardy, Jr., and Miss Mattie Sawyer, spent Saturday and Sunday . in town, returning to the Hub Monday. They came up to get a whiff of genuine Vermont winter weather, and they struck it just right finding it fine and unadulterated at 25 below Ziro. The boys' and girls' debating clubs held a joint meeting last evening with Miss Alice Page. The question for discussion was that hope of re ward had a greater influence on char acter than fear of punishment. This was ably discussed by Miss Fitch and Wilson Leach in the affirmative and Miss Ilolbrook and Arthur Grimes in the negative. The jury decided in favor of the negative. After this came a social time a sort of Valentine party which was great ly enjoyed by all. Light refresh ments were served. Town politics are very quiet at present, but will no doultsoon warm np. We hear of no special changes contemplated, but it will indeed be strange if there isn't quite a general shaking up when March meeting romes around. A. C. Davis, who has been Road Commissioner for a couple of yenis announces that heisout ofit and doesn't, want, a re-election. This announcement, may wake up several candidates. As soon as we hear who would like this or any other town job we will give our naders the in formation. By the way Davis makes a good showing as to last year's ex penses. He has laid out on the high ways this amount: Winter of 18!)8, $31)2 05; summer ofl 808. $1122.34; winter f i899, 290.22; total, $1805.21. This is $455 78 less than the year before. ltlverslde.
