For a long . time there has been complaint that the entrance, to the post-office was not equal to the crowd. A larger entrance has been provided, and seems to giveconsider able relief, yet there are many who seem to think that it is not quite up-to-date enough for Morrisville.

Mrs, and Miss Eaton are cousins of Mrs. Tal cott, who baa been In former yeara connected with People's Academy. The ladies having charge of the rummage sale wish to thank all who helped make it a success either by work, contributions or patronage. The exchange of commodities seemed o fair, and the enterprise so success ful that the ladies think they shall have another similar salo next year, but with some new and desirable fea tures added.

The catamount that has been ter rorizing several neighborhoods, or some relative of the "varmint," was heard near H. C. Sherwin's barn last Sunday morning, about 4 o'clock, as Mr. Sherwin was going to do his milk ing. While this maynotbea warning against early rising, those who per sist in doing it should take a gatling gun along tor protection. E. S. Robinson has greatly im proved the appearance of his proper ty near the river, by clearing off the ledge, making walks, and setting out small trees. He intends placing benches there in the spring. This is a move in the rightdirection.andone that should be followed by others, as we doubt not there are many places around town, in gardens or on lawns that might be made pretty and at tractive nooks, by a small amount of labor. A procession, that "takps the cake," wended its way down Main and Portland streets last Saturday, be ing an aggregation of vehicles dating way back In the way of usefulness. Darius Bedell acted as engineer, and Uepnty Sheriff Town as conductor, To w n bei n g sea ted u nder an u m brel I a , fanning himself, preparing for the or deal ahead of him in the auctioneer ing line.

The reading of the thermometer for the past eight years, beginning with the year 1893. is 58, 55, 50, 50, 56, 5t, 53, 61, for the noon hour during the month of October. Octo ber 15, '94 two inches of snow fell. This plainly shows that all remarks made of the mildness of 1900 October weather are well founded, and Novem ber thus far is as promising as the beautiful rainbow of Monday evening, though the higher hills were whitened Monday night. A fair under the auspices of the Wo man's Club of Morrisville will be held in the Town Hall about the middle of December, coneistingof booths repre senting the tour seasons in wnicn ar ticles corresponding to them will be sold.

L Spear, Mrs. W. L. Tillotson, Mrs. C. A. Gile, Mrs. W. L. Wakefield, Miss Ednah Rublee and Mrs: J. F.Thomas One thing will be apparent since last night, at least, that the New Eng land Telegraph & Telephone Co. is not a "monopoly'.' all the time, and that in the giving out of election re turns, not only lor this but in for mer years, it has been very liberal, making no charge. The Presidential year has added zesfc to the getting of election news, so Manager Uealey con nected Town Hall with the main line, appointing D. A. Sanders as, 'phone operator. An orchestra com posed of P.E.Stone, violin; Lin Paul, 'cello; with Mrs. E. H. Stone at the piano, gave excellent music during the even ing. This was all free, but the " man with the hat" at the door must have received quite a sum from those pass ing out, as a complimentary testi monial to those who had labored to make the occasion an enjoyable one It was an enthusiastic crowd. Re turns were also received at the depot by telegraph. The Halloween party of last week netted the Senior Academy class $20. There will be an inspection of J. M.

Returns were long time coming in and not until after m dnight was anything oi im oortance heard. The news by tele phone from Morrisville was the best by far. Those "Rough Rider" hats are still in style. The boys "didn't do a thing" Hal lowe'en night that is they didn't do anywhere near as much cutting up as a year ago. bo me old culch was moved around, a sign or two taken down and a few unique ones put up in .various places, throughout the village. Alcohol seemed to be very free about the village Tuesday and at the depot in the evening the drunks were Dumerous. While it may not be gen erally known where the liquor came irom it is very evident that too much is diHoensed somewhere for the morals and good of the community. The work of re-shingling the hotel barn gee merrilyon. lb is estimated that it will take about 50,000 shingles to do the job. It may not be known to many that the barn formerly stood where the bank now stands. It was moved to its present location by L. U. N ayes some thirty-five years ago, at which time it was enlarged to its present proportions. We do not know when the original barn was built, but probably 50 or 60 years ago. Josiah Perry has concluded to give up farming, for a year at least. He goes down to Cambridge Nov. 20 to run a boarding house for Morse & Child at the "Notch." His wife "and two youngest children go with him, the other two remaining in school here. Mr. Perry has lived on the same farm for twenty years, and is a good townsman whom many will re gret to have go away. His brother Norman will carry on the farm in connection with the one he now owns. R. W. Hulburd and F. H. McFar- land attended a law suit at Lowell last Friday. It was between Mrs. Thos. Long and L. L. Cross. Mrs. Long sued Crots for assault and battery, claiming that last summer Long forcibly eijcted her from his berry field. Crons denied this, stating that he simply ordered her out. The plaintiff s sisters corroborated this statement and the inrv returned a verdict of "no cause for action." Rufus Kinsley, Esq , was the Justice. Hulburd for the plaintiff, McFarland for the defendant. The election wrfs a very quiet affair in this town no very large attend ance at any one time. At ten o clock the polls were opened with J. T. Stevens in charge of the ballot box, Pn. G. Wood in his usual place as clerk, with Amos Davis and Peter Parriu as. ballot clerks. The first vote was cast by R. W. Hulburd and the last by Dewey Hanley. There were 291 ballots taken from the tab lets, one of these was torn and in counting two were found marked defective. This left a total vote of 288, of which the Republicans cast 191, D-mocrats 92, Prohibitionists 4, People's party 1, giving a Re publican majority of 94. This is a falling off of 30 as compared with the mpjority of 1896. The Democrats cast one more vote than in 1896, the Prohibitionists 2, People's party the same. In 1896 there was one National Democratic vote cast. Add this to the Regular Democratic vote and that of 1896 and 1900 is the same. The loss is entirely on the Republican side, caused by the indifference of about 30 Republicans. Riverside. Mrs. Eliza Lilley is visiting in Cam bridge.
