Vermont women are hpard of al
most the world around. One of the
late ones to demand her rights is Miss
M. A. Thompson, well known to a
good many Lamoille county people.
According to the San Francisco (Cal)
Chronicle she applied to the registry
headquarters to be enrolled as a vot
er. The polite clerk inquired what
her husband's name was, but was
given to understand by Miss Thomp
son that she was a taxpayer and
that she could see no reason why she
should not enjoy an equal right with
the malj population in voicing her
sentiment as to who should have
charge of the government, giving no
tice that she would be heard, from
through the courts in case of refusal,
A Fiendish Attack,
An attack was lately made on C. F.
Collier of Cherokee, Iowa, that near
ly proved fatal. It came through
his kidneys. Ilis back cot so lame
he could not stoop without great
pain, nor sit in a chair except prop
ped by cushions. No remedy helped
him until he tried Electric Bitters
which effected such a wonderful
change that he writes he feels like a
new man. This marvelous medicine
cures backache and kidney trouble,
purifies the blood and builds up your
health. Only 50c at H. J. Dffinell's

Four Years of Emnloytnent.
"A prominet resident of Kensing
ton, who is a mechanic by occupe
tion, was invited a few days ago to
attend a Democratic meeting. Why
should I attend your meeting?' in
quired this gentleman of the one who
had extended the invitation. 'I was
out of work four years during the
Democratic administration, but since
the Republicans have been in control
of national affairs, I have had plenty
of work and money to buy necessities.
Vote fjr a change? What kind of a
change, lor the worse? Oh, no, I
don't want anything of your meet
ing.' We think the gentleman quoted
has expressed the sentiments ol every
mechanic and laborer in the country.
Work has been plentiful since Mr. Mc
Kinley's election and no man of busi
ness will vote for Mr. Bryan 'for a
change. "Change' is the one thing the
mechanic will be short 01 it Mr. Bry
an is elected."
The above is from the Kensington
Press, and what is true of the me
chanics ol that clace, is also true of
mechanics in Annapolis. There are

In a brief conversation with Prof.
Ranger of Johnson he professed the
utmost confidence in the success of
his candidacy for the office oPState
Superintendentof Education. A vast
majority of instructors of the State
have endorsed his candidacy, not to
mention scores of prominent citizens
throughout the State, and he also
has the unhesitatingsupport of 11 of
the 14 county supervnor. 1 believe
that his support as thus indicated
assures his-election without any con
test worthy the name. Mr. Temple
of Rutland may feel himself to be se
rious in his candidacy for the office,
and it is within the range of possibil
ity that he may have a few friends
who thus delude tbemseves, but the
most they ran hope for is a place in
the returns as an " alsoran." Is this
worth while? John E. Harris, in the
Montpeher Journal.
Senator Davis of Minnesota says
that when e go down to bedrock tbe
real pr.ratnouut issue of the Presi
dential campaign is the protective
tariff. And come to think of it, is
there not a good deal of truth in it?
Look over tbe list of men and news
papers booming the "anti-imperial"
business, and in nine cases out of ten
it will be found that they are dyed-in
the-wool free traders. They have
. never forgiven Mr. McKinley for be
ing a stiff Protectionist, and they
never will. The anti-imperial hum
bug is the tbiunest kind of veneer for
covering up the real cause 01 their
hatred of a man whose worst fault in
their eyes is his ardent Americanism.

Returned from my first return vis
it to the old home in Morrisville, my
first desire is to registerstill stronger
al egiance to and faith in her and her
people. My home fora lifetime up to
two years ago, the place and all its
contents is very dear to me. The
most cherished memory of that visit
is and will be, tbe evidence that
kind and staunch friends are there. I
pr'ze them highly, and shall not let
go the hope thatsomedaysomething
may some how lead me back. Inclin
ation might prompt the summing up
of some things you have done in tbe
time of my absence, but that is use
less, you know. But let it be said
that the spirit of enterpi i-ie, of go-ahead-a-tive-ness,
and of harmony,
which has made the town what it was
discovered to be, untarnished, and
very active, and said too that Morris
ville men know how to join hands
and make for themselves and for the
community the very best results and
ends, as no other collection of men I
know of can and this is not taffy oh
The city has just completed a new
electric elevator in the tower portion
of the city hall. It was open for pub
lic use for the first time this week, and
now by getting a permit from the
proper authority one is whirled up
and up to within ten feet of the feet
of William Penn in brocz , the climax
of the tower. The elevation reached
by the sight seer is just five hundred
feet above the street and affords a
fine view of the town. The crown of
'"Uncle William's,' hat is forty-seven
feet higher up.
Monday, the 24 tb, was a holiday
to a great many people in this burgh,
it being the Hebrew New Year day.
The event was celebrated with great
ceremony in the synagosues on that
and following days. Hebrew New
Year's cards were much in demand j
and a vast number of people partici- j
pated in the strange doings.
Mr. John Wanamaker, who was
sick here and at his Cape May cottage
in June and July, returned last Sat
urday evening from a European trip
evidently 'fully restored to health.
He resumed his work at Bethany
church last Sunday morning, ad
dressing a leaders' meeting at 9.30 a.
m., giving a practical talk in the
men's Brotherhood meeting at 9 45,
speaking to the children at 10.30,
opening the Sunday school at 2 30
and teaching the lesson in the great
Bible Union at 3.00 p. m. By this it
may be seen that he is in health
again, reports to the contrary not
withstanding, and that the pressure
of business cares does not, and for 25
years or more has not deterred him
from constant active work with tbe
church which he founded, Bethany
Presbyterian church at 22nd and
Bainbridge streets.
The movement here in behalf of the
Galveston sufferers from the recent
disaster has been quite remarkable.
About Sfoo.000 in cash have already
been forwarded tothUcity besides two
or three train loads of supplies. The
various theatres have given benefits
and through the efforts of the Phila
delphia Inquirer a special Galveston
relief benefit in which the stars from
several theatres appeared in special
program was given in the Academy
of Music last Monday. The rectipts
from that one entertainment footed
up nearly $G500. There can be little
doubt of the generosity of Quaker
The University of Pennsylvania
opened its IGOth year this week and
hundreds ol students are here again.
Jefferson Medical college and the two
or three dental colleges are about
opening, the great number of public
schools, lesser note colleges, commer
cial, musical, and the like, are open
and Philadelphia has awakeued from
the going to seed spell which hovers
around it more or less densely during
July and August.
There has been torn down an old
landmark on the south side of Chest
nut strtet between 11th and 12th
streets, known as the Baldwin Man
sion. The demolished building opens
up a gap with a frontage of about
125 feet. The site has been purchas
by the well known amusement fur
nisher, B. F. Keith, and on the face
of the board barricade to the front
there appears in larire letters "Here
will be erected B. F. Keith's new 1,
000,000 theatre, to open Sept. 1,
1901." It is a splendid location and
will give tbjs enterprising show man
an opportunity to give Philadelphia
something far ahead of anything it
has, an opportunity he is very likely
to take full advantage of. At pres
ent Mr. Keith has an attractive thea
tre on North 8th street.but the loca
tion could be bettered, the house is
inadequate in size and is nearly al
ways packed to an uncomfortable de
gree, uncomfortable to everyone but
the management.
And as to the theatre season, it
seems to have opened in nearly all
houses, Klaw and Erlanger's great
production of "Ben llur" appears at
the Chestnut street opera house. The
Chestnut street Theatre has "The Vil
hge Postmaster" with Archie Boyd
as "it" this week and Primrose and
Dochstaders huge minstrels next
week. Minnie S-leigman in "When a
Woman Loves" is at the Broad street
theatre. Ni-xt week's attraction
there will be the fanion Bostonians
in tbe opera "The Viceroy." The
openiDg event at The Park is "The
Adventures of Francois" with Henry
E. Dixey as Jb'rancoi. "The Cadet
Girl" with Dan Dily as the leader, is
at The Walnut. The popular come
dian, refer F. Daly, in "Hodge,
Podge & Co." comts to that house
next week. Girard avenue theatre
has "Cyrano De Bergerac" this week
and "What Happened to Jones" next
week. The Grand Opera House,
Keith's. The National, The Star,
Forepaugh's, Gil morn's Auditorium,
lltb street Opera House, The Lyce
um, The Norcadero, 9th street Arch
Museum, etc., etc., all have attractive
Was amused to note "Paradise Al
ley" Co. recently playing in Morris
ville to the effect that the intense ex
citement attending the political cam
paign in the large cities precluded
their showing therein, hence their ap
pearing in small towns. Bosh, I saw
and heard more politics tpn times
over in the few days spent in Vermont
than I've heard here since t he nation
al convention in June. There is ab
solutely no excitement, no fl irry.
Only once have I heard even a con
versation between two which smack
ed of a political discussion. By com
mon consent and understanding,
both parties have refrained from in
dulging in flag raisings, it seemingly
being considered that the use of the
national colors shall be for patriotic
purpose only, and without the hitch
ing on of any partisan names or
watchword. Not a single campaign
flag has been thrown out here that
I've seen. The absence of excitement
is all the better for business and is
proof enough that the people are
calmly thinking the matter out. Of
course there can be no question as to
the vote of this great industrial cen
tre, but what is true concerning a
lack of campaign flurry here is no
doubt true of many of the larger cit
ies throughout the country. The
fact is people in general are too busy
to stop and talk politics very much.
In '96 people killed their spare time
(nd they had lots of it) loafing
around and talking politics.
Emulating the action of the father
of hi country a number of years
since, somewhere hereabouts I cross
ed the Delaware on Monday evening
of this week and went over to the city
of Camden, to greet and hear Congressman-elect
D. J. Foster of the
first Vermont district. I take it for
granted that the good people of Mor
risville, yea, of Hyde Park, have
heard of him. In company with Sec
retary of the State Republican Com
mittee Mr. Gibson of Newark, ex-Congressman
Pickney of the Camden dis
trict and Chairman of the Consres
sional Campaign Committee Babcock,
Mr. Foster addressed a large gather
ing of Jerseymen who had assembled
in and on the lawns about tbe ele
gant club house of the Camden Re
publican Club, a powerful factor in
holding up an eight or ten thousand
Republican majoiity inCamden coun
ty. This is enough. Rob

Few things are as dis-'

other medicines fail, because it is more
than a cough medicine. The cough is
but a symptom. "Discovery" makes
new and pure blood, heals the lacerated
tissues, and gives the body the needed
strength to throw off disease. It cures
the cough by curing the cause of the
cough. There is no alcohol, neither
opium, cocaine, nor other narcotic in
the "Discovery."

The striking and important events
of the last year have established the
overwhelming value of tbe Thriee-a-Week

almost nominal sum it has kept in

it were a daily. With our interests
stillextending throughout the world,
with our troops operating in the
Philippines, and the great Presiden

is fuither increased.
Tbe motto of The Thrice a-Week

The New York Times says in its re
view of books and art: Edwin Asa
Dix, the author oi "Deacon Brad
bury," has lately been in Vermont
accumulating impressions and ma
terial for further work in the same
New England field. He has visited
some of the old villages and commu
nities, away from the line of the rail
road, where the life is little changed
from that of the seventies, describee!
in his novel. Mr. Dix spent much
time in Vermont at that period, as
well as before and since, so that he
knows his ground intimately.
