Town to satisfy a chattel mortgage held by Mrs. Ella Hardy. The matter dates back to the time when Cowles & Har dy ran the business and the present move was begun to protect the in terests of the holder of the mortgage. Mr. Cowles U an industrious "busi ness man and has a large cirele of friends, who hope the "tie-up" will not be of long duration. The stock was moved Saturday to the West Block. " The ol 1 order changeth and fiv eth place to the new." The" oil way was to keep stores open Irom early morn to late at night. The com mencementof doing away with this sort of procedure was inaugurated last night, when the large percentage of our business places were closed to the public at rix o'clock. It isa radi cal change, no doubt, but one that will be appreciated more and moreas line progresses. The printer. will have to remain in the ' chain gang," it would seem, unless correspondents are more punctual ing. tting the news in. This alo applies to others who would use our columns, whether for news or advertising purposes. Bear It iu mind, and act accordingly. Miss Jennie Waite of Manchester, N. H., is visiting her brother and sis ter, H. Waite and Mrs. II. Aller. The ice harvest has commenced in earnest. The Ice is of a prime quality and about 14 inches in thickness. E. E.

Hon. W. W. Stickney of Ludlow, C. H. Uobb of Bellows Falls, ex Gov. Hendee, Geo. M. Powers and 11. W. Hulburd were of the array of legal talent. It is quite gratifying to the News and Citizen management at tbe prompt way in which renewals of sub scriptions have been coming in, as well as the numerous new names that have been added to the list. The prompt stopping of the paper at the expiration of the subscription re ceives many words of praise from comparatively new comers, as well as those who have been with us as far back as the sixties. For the coming year an earnest effort will be made, as in the past, to merit this confi dence. HYDE PARK. F. N. Keeler is in Boston. Lumber has taken a big jump up ward. John Underwood was in Boston over Sunday. The moon is full. Nobody else gets so around here. Col. McFarland and wife were in Burlington to-day. Mies Nancy Farman is spending a week at her home in Westfield. . Miss Anna Chaplin of Enosburgh Falls was a guest at Will Harris' Tues day. The sleighing is just right; but hardly enough snow for the lumber men. The annual Cong'l church dinner comes Saturday Jan. 27. Bear it in mind. E. G.

Mrs. Sever ance has spent' considerable time here, and those who know her hold her in high regard. John Miner has lost his job in Bos ton. It seems that a lady in stepping off his car got hurt and sued 'the company and for this John was dis charged. A boy like John is likely to find another good job soon. He came home this morning and will remain here for the present. Miss Doris Denio entertained a number of her young friends last Wednesday evening. The event was in honor of her 12th birthday and it was a very pleasant affair. Hand some celluloid souvenirs, on which was the date, and a picture of the host, were given the guests. The pay train made its last trip Monday sure. It was thought a few weeks ago that it would not come again, but tLere were a few things to finish up before this noted traincould be taken off, hence the trip Monday. We think the contemplated change in tt e method of payingoff the railroad employes is a wise one. Since the electric lights have been extended out to the Minor place, several of the residents on that road have caught the fever. John Forster, the hustling baker, has had his es tablithment wired, and among those who contemplate following suit are V. V. Wiswell, (). Whittemore, Frank Nichols and J. Sackett. Sargent and Swit z r, the t wo young men from Stowe, who were sent to Rut land several months ago for stealing chickens, having served their time were brought to jail yesterday by Sheriff Burt, the State's Attorney having filed additional information against them for further depreda tions In the poultry line. Unless bailed they will put up at the county hostelry until next June The social event of the season was the recepDion at S. B. Waite's last Wednesday evening. It was the an nual "gentlemen's night" of the Home Culture Club. It is the only occasion when the men folks are al lowed to be present at a meeting of the club, aud so well are they taken care of on these occasions that they are quite anxious to have the club kept in existence. On this occa sion fcixty-five were present and all enjoyed themselves to the fullest ex tent. The guests were cordially received by Mr. and Mrs. Waite and the members of the club. Considera ble time was spent in social visiting and during the evening the following program was rendered: Duette by Mrs. T. H. Page and Mrs. A. H. Keeler; solo by Mrs. Page; flute solos by C. H. Crane with Mrs. Crane as accompanist; instrumental duette by Miss Waite and Mark Whitney; recitation by Miss Kinsley. The en tire program was nicely rendered and heartily encored. Dainty refresh ments were served by a bevy of hand some young ladies. It was certainly a "red letter" occasion and will be pleasantly remembered by those who had the good fortune to be present. The following from the Free Press of Monday will interest many of our readers, as the young man referred to is a Hyde Park boy and friends here are always interested in him : Bert G. Spicer, who has been for the past six years the obliging clerk of the Van Ness House, was presented on Saturday evening with a handsome gold watch, chain and charm, the occasion being his resignation to go to Massachusetts, where he is to be em ployed in similar work. The watch, which is a handsome one of solid gold, was presented to Mr. Spicer by sevtral of those who stop at the Van Ness and a few of his triencjs and as sociates at the hotel. The chain and charm were given him by the employes of the Van Ness and is also of solid gold. They were presented with a few fitting remarks by F. W. Taylor of Chase & Sanborn, to which Mr. Spicsr responded as well as his surprise would permit. Oa the bac'i of the watch are the initials of tbe owner handsomely engraved while inside the case are the words "From the boys who stop at the Van Ness," January 14, 1900. Academy Notes. The Preceptress was obliged to be out of school Monday by illness. Miss Mann of the primary department spent Sunday at her borne in Waterville. The young student who went to see his best girl the other nijjht and saw the Pro fessor's overcoat in the hall thought it best to postpone the visit until a later date. The rhetoricals last Thursday afternoon were very interesting. The debate was well handled and resulted in favor of abolishing the jury system. There were also reci tations, readings and music, all being of t'je u.mil high order. The members of the teachers' class are tak ing advantage of the special Saturday in structions at the Normal school at Johnson. Several ol them along with the Professor, Preceptress and Miss Brigham drove down last Saturday and had a pleasant afternoon's instruction in drawing by Miss Darling, who ranks high in this branch. Instruction in music and methods of school government is also to be given. The opportunity is greatly appreciated by those interested. Riverside. Mrs. Pvosie Kelley is again on the sick list. Hallie Stearns and wife of Johnson visited at Charles Wbitcomb's recently. Edwin Stygles and wife are spending sev eral days with their son at West Enosburg. Centervllle. Homer Calkins of Barre is visiting friends here. Prof. Cook has given up the Bhow business for the present aud is working for John Sco field at Greenfield.

Edgar Bullurd and his son Leo intend to go to Connecticut to work. They expect to start sometime in February. Phenomenal Growth of the Lamoille Couuty Havings Bank. The first of January statement of the Lamoille County Savings Bank & Trust Company shows that institu tion to have more than three-quarters of a million dollars assets ($764, 1GG.55), with a surplus of $41, 888.08. Its growth during the past year has been phenomenal, approxi mating $200,000. Its deposits Jan. 1, 1891), were $488,808 89. while .Ian! 1,1900, they were $G72:278.48. We doubt that there is a savings bank in Nw England, in a village the siz of Hyde Park, that can show an equal record. It still keeps its flig floating with the rrretto in scribed, "Never a dollar lost by bad investments, nor a dollar of doubtfuk assets so far as known."
