NEWS AND CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1900.
LOCAL NEWS. MORRISVILLE. G. R. Townsend of North Hyde Fark visited at L. L. faraway's last week. Mrs. F. P. Keeler, who had been in Burlington for the previous two weeks, returned last Thursday even ing. Our Democratic friends are the possessors of a fine banner and a place to fling it to the breeze, and phould arrange for speakers of note. The being in the minority is no ex tenuation nor excuse for non-action. Mr. and Mrs. Leander Laraway and daughter attended the Co. E. 7th Vt. reunion that was held at Vernon Patch's in Johnson last Wednesday. They report an enjoyable time. The Company is to meet at Mr. Lara- way 8 home next ytar. The lathing and plastering work on the G. M. Powers bouse is being carried on, Will Towne superintend ing the plastering, whih Mr. Powers ia master mechanic on the lathing and furring. George eeema to fill the bill, both as a supervisor and a la borer. E. H. Eggleston left Thursday for a railroad rida across the continent to Oakland, California, expecting to be absent about a month. On there turn home he intends to come by the way of the Grand Canon, Colorado, where he will see some of the grand est scenery on the American conti nent. Matters are being closed up down at the tannery so that the beginning of the end can be seen. Connection has been made vith the big well, the brick work on the boilers and furnac es completed, the steam pumps placed in position, as well as much of the machinery, and in a few weeks from now it is expected that the big whitt le will send forth a blast sufficiently loud to waken even the soundest Bleeper. A little diversion was created on Portland street this morning that was fully enjoyed by the crowd. Will Sherman was washing the windows of Clark's tonsorial parlors, using village water, which has a good many pounds pressure. Jur-t then Izzie An drews came alone. The temptatioa was too great, so Will turned the hose on him. Izzie charged the bat tery, captured it and turned the wa ter on the retreating enemy, and was heartily applauded. Izzie may not be very heavy in theavoirdupoisline, but he has dead loads of dare. There are thousands of acres of land within easy reach of Morrisville, covered with full grown and second growth hardwood timber awaiting some one to come here and manufac ture it into a commodity that will meet market demands. A good 'deal of hardwood is shipped out now in the shape of lumber, but what is wanted now is another industry or two that can make this latent wealth available. The supply is great and the growth each year is more than the most extraordinary demand could deplete. It may be some consolation to know that in and around Ogdens burg, N. Y., is a rainy belt that ex ceeds this section of Lamoille county in number of rainy days. The con tinued lowery weather here, no doubt, interfered with agricultural opera tions to a large extent, but has kept the foliage and other growing things up to the greenest of green, a matter very much commented upon by those coming here from drouth stricken sections. These visitors all agree that the Green Mountain State is rightly named, but wonder at what a change in verdure is produced in the range of a comparatively few number of miles. It must have been a sense of relief to Irving Le Baron and to his parents, Mr. and Mrs I. N. LeBaron, last Thursday when they could freely come and go from their home, the smallpox quarantine having been raised that day. The young man contracted the disease at liardwick before its nature was known there or here, and came home sick to receive home treatment. The case was iso lated from the start, and to this can be attributed, more than anything else, its not spreading in Morrisville. People here are devoutly thankful that this is the one and only case, and that it is over with, and that in all probability no more cases will fol low, and should end the smallpox scare here. Prevented A Tragedy, Timely information given Mrs. George Long, of New Straitsville, Ohio, saved two lives. A frightful cough had long kept her awake every night. She had tried many remedies and doctors but steadily grew worse until urged to try Dr. King's New Discovery. One bottle wholly cured her; and she writes, this marvelous medicine also cured Mr. Long of a severe attack of Pneumonia. Such cures are positive proof of its power to cure all throat, chest and lung troubles. Only 50c and $1.00 - Guar anteed. Trial bottle free at 11. J. Dwinell's drug store.

CASTOR I A For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought The Republican Flag Ialel. The rain element that hf-ld sway the larger portion of Thursday abdi cated along towards fvening hIIow iug the raising of the b'g M Kmley and lloosevelt flag. As its folds caught the gentle breeze cheer upon clier from lusty throats resounded, and an impromptu chorus gave out in musical notes "Rallv Round tte Flag." The march towards town hall soon followed and in a short time it was comfortably tilled to listen to a Mor ristown ton, don. H. Henry Powers, who is well-known to all our citizens. The introductory address was by F. G. Fleetwood, chairman of the town committee and it was a good enunci ation of the general principles of the Republican party and delivered im promptu without reference to topic heads, and well illustrated that upon occasion he could talk, and bad a grasp upou the general issues that few could have carried out in tue manner he did. The speaker of the evening, Judge Powers, as most of us address him, virtually opened the cmpaign in Morrisville for the 1900 campaign, and there is noneworth'erof the hon or. Identified with the party for years, serving nearly ten years in Congress, wherein the greatest part of the legislation for the benefit of our country has emanated, he could be expected to give a good many facts and did. lie was greeted with hearty applause at the start and it followed up at times during his remarks. Without what is called oratorical display he fully explained the status of the two gteat party leaders Mc Kinley and Bryan and the principles represented by each, and what Re- publicat'ism had done, through the present leader, aided bv the Dmgley tariff law. The "Imperialism" ques tion received attention presuming such a coudition existed citing the number of guns posei?sed by the United iStates to be fur less than that possessed by little Portugal, declar ing that Uncle Sam should not rebt content until he had one more gun than any European power, a state ment that met with a hearty cheer ing response. The Judge handled the"free trade" question on the plan of wel paid la bor as against tie jobbing outfits li able to be sprung upon a commun ity. As a whole it was a forceful and in structive address and that portion directed towards the currency ques tion was a very fair presentation of the case why silver and gold could not be kept at a parity even though the government purchased from two to four million dollars a month in bullion from the silver miners and kept it up for some years. Perhaps, as are all matters on the progressive side that deal in statistics, which means figures, was not as entertain ing as a novel, yet the facts present ed were instructive and what the vot er should know. At the conclusion of the Judge's address the meeting adjourned, the public regarding it well to be present. Story Of A Slave. To be bound hand and foot for years by the chains of disease is the worst form of slavery. George D. Wil liams of Manchester, Mich., says: "My wife has been so helpless for five years that she could not turn over id bed alone. After using two bottles of Electric Bitters she is wonderfully improved and able to do her own work." This supreme remedy for female diseases quickly cures nervous ness, sleeplessness, melancholy, head ache, backache, fainting and dizzy spells. It is a godsend to weak, sick ly, run-down people.

The Pall Mall Gazette nnhlishpa n list of common misquotations which is too long to reprint in this space, but the followingare worth noting: "The tongue is an unruly mem ber." "But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil." (James 3,8.) . "Charity covereth a multitude of sins." "Charity shall cover the mul titudes of sins." (I. Peter 4, 8.) "A man convinced against his will will hold the same opinion still." "He that complies against bis will is of bis own opinion still." (Butler, Hudibras, Part III. Butler also was a man of intelligence.) "Make assurance doubly sure." "Make assurance doubleeure." (Mac beth. Act IV., scene 1.) "Benedict the married man" should be "Benedick the married man." (Much Ado About Nothing.) "Falleth as the gentle dew." "Droppeth as the gentle rain." (Mer chant of Venice. Act IV., scene 1.) "The man that has no music in his soul." "The man that hath no music in himself." (Ibid. Act V., scene 1.) "Falls like Lucifer never ' to rise again." "Falls like Lucifer never to hope again." (Henry VIII. Act III., scene 2. "Thick as autumn leaves in Val lombrosa." "Thick as autumnal leaves that strew the brooks in Val lombrosa." (Milton, Paradise Lost, Book 1.) "Fresh fields and pastures new." "Fresh woods and pastures new." (Milton, Lycidas.) "Just cause and Impediment." "Cause or just impediment." (Book of Common Prayer.) "The even tenor of their way." "The noiseless tenor of their way." (Gray's Elegy.) THE BIBLE. Some Evidence That There Are People Who Are Familiar With It Companion of m Prisoner for Thirty-three Years. (From The Jewelers' Circular ) A jeweler in Iowa, writinga jobbing house that questioned bis credit, quoted : "What is not of faith is sin," conveying theinference that the jobbers wpre siuners. The house re plied : I aitn witnout works is dead," and "There is none perfect, no not one. 1 bey are now sorry they replied in kind, for thU is what the next mail brought: See what Gene sis vi., 9, says about a perfect man. See what we are told to do, Matthew v., 48. Here is a good thought, James Hi., 2. Can we do it? See Job xii., 2. The trouble with people is this, Jeremiah xvii., 9. See what U said in I. Samuel xvi., 7. If it were not for this we would ull be lost. Can noteveryt.ody be perfect if they would see what is said in I. Corinthians x., 13 ? Which shows that there are jew elers whose time is not entirely occu pied with business cares. (From the New York Mail and Express.) The learned Prince of Granada, heir to the Spanish throne, imprisoned by order of the crown for fear he should aspire to the throne, was kept in sol itary confinement, at the Place of Skulls, Madrid. After 33 years in this living tomb death came to his release, and the following remarkable researches, taken from the Bible and marked with an old rusty nail on the rough walls of his cell, told how the brain sought employment through the weary years. In the Bible the word "Lord" is und 1853 times. foThe word "Jehovah" 6855 timr s. The word "reverend" butonce,and that in the ninth verse of Psalms cxi. The eighth verse of the ninety-sev enth Psalm is the middle verse of the Bible. The ninth verse of the eighth chap ter of Esther is the longest. The 35 verse of the 11th chapter of St. John is the shortest. In the 107th Psalm four verses are alike the 8, 15, 21 and 31. Ezra vii.,21 contains all the letters of the alphabet f xcept j. Eachverseof the 136th Psalm ends alike. No names or words with more tha n six syllables are found in the Bible, The 37th chapter of Isaiah and 19th chapter, of Second Kings are alike. The word "girl'' occurs but once in the Bible, and that in the third verse of the third chapter of Joel. There are found in both books of the Bible 3,538,483 letters, 773,093 words. 31,373 verses, 1189 chapters and 66 books. The 26th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles is the finest chapter to read. The most beautiful chapter is th 23d Psalm. The four most inspiring profr are John xiv., 2; vi., 37; Matthew xi., 28: Psalm xxxvii.,4. The first verse of the 50th chapter of Isaiah is the one for the new con vert. All who flatter themselves with vain boasting should read the sixth chap ter of Matthew. All humanity should learn thesixth chapter of St. -Luke from the 20th verse to its ending. It Helped Win Battles. Twenty-nine officers and men wrote from the Front to say that for Scratches, Bruises, Cuts, Wounds, Sore Feet and Stiff Joints, Bucklen's Arnica Salve is the best in the world. Same for Burns, Skin Eruptions and Piles. 25 cts. a box. Cure guaran teed. Sold by H. J. Dwinell, druggist. Qneer Chinese Superstitions. , An incident illustrative of the dan ger lying in this direction is related by Mr. Chester Holcombe, for many years Secretary of the American lega tion at Pekin. When General Grant was visiting China Mr. Holcombe se cured for him a privilege never before that time accorded to a foreigner, the privilege of admission into thesacred precincts of the Temple of Heaven in Peking. Now it is contrary to the settled belief of the Chinese to admit a member of the female sex, old or young, even to the temple ground under any circumstances. It is said that should a Chinese guard venture even to carry a baby girl in his arms within the forbidden lines he would probably bepunislfed with death. Not knowing of these restrictions, a num ber of ladies in General Grant's party ventured to follow him when he vis ited the sacred edifice. Realizing the seriousness of this action, Mr. Hol combe afterwards apologized to the emperor's representative for the con duct of his country women, and was informed that the intrusion would be overlooked, but must be kept as se cret as possible, for should the popu lace learn of it an anti-foreign out break would be likely to follow. Tby would not forgive such a pollution of their most sacred building. Leslies Weekly. , ' That Throbbing Headache Would quickly leave you, if ypu used Dr. King's New Life Pills.

A wooden house that would not burn was put to the test in New York the other day. The structure had been treated with some preparation that is warranted to render wood fireproof, and the tect tended to bear out the claim. The experiment was conducted under the rupervision of the rvew lorfe hoard of fire depart ments of New York. The building was two stories high, with a large space beneath in which a fierce fire was set going. Some of the visitors remained in the houseduring the test and suffered no inconvenience. The fire was said to be strong enough to burn down any ordinary building in New York, but it did no harm to the prepared wood beyond charring it a little. The wolf in the fable put on sheep's clothing because if he traveled on his own reputation he couldn't accom plish his purpose. Counterfeiters of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve couldn't sell their worthless salves on their merits, so they put them in boxes and wrappers like DeWitt's. Look out for them. Take only DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. It cures piles and all skin diseases. G. B. Foss, Hyde Park; F. Hazard. No. Hyde Park: H.J. Dwinell, Morrisville; Shattuck & Son, Eden: J. J. Vearen, stowe ; Dr. Hubbell, Wolcott; C. Campbell, Centerviile; O. P. Jones, Johnson; C. F.; Havford, Kast Johnson; N. E. Baldwin, Tsa. Wolcott The engineering feat of transport ing a steamboat of 550 tons from Scoltand to Lake Titicaca the most elevated lake in South America has just been completed. It was con structed in Scollind, and then taken in sections to Molendo, Peru, from which placn it was tsken in 22 cars by the railroad skirting the steep sides of the Andes to the lakeside, nearly 13,000 f.'et above the sea lev el. There the sections of the vessel were put together again an 1 the boil ers and engine installed. Chinese are dangerous enemies, for they are treacherous. That's why all counterfeits of DeVVitt s Witch Hazel Salve are dangerous. They look like DeWitt's, but instead of the all-healing witch hsz"l they all con tain ingredients liable to irritate the skin and cause blood poisoning. For piles, injuries and skin diseases use the original and genuine DeWitt's Wicth Hazel Salve. G. B. Foss, Hyde Park; F. Hazard. No. Hyde Park: H. S. Dwinell, Murrisville; Shattuck & Son, Eden; J. J.

The Army and Navy Journal brings together the statistics of lives lost in railroading in the United States the past year, and compares these with the casualties in the Philippines, reck oning on the basis of an army of 63, 000 men. The result shows railroad ing to be about four times as peril pus 88 war. Millions will be spent in politics this year.

It may be assumed with a good de gree of confidence that this campaign will not be as profitable for Mr. Bryan as was the last. The people will be slow to part with their good money to hear hard luck stories. In India, the land of famine, thou sands die because theycannot obtain food. In America, the land of plenty, many suffer and die because they can not digest the food they eat. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure digests what you eat.
