Partlow & D.ivis beeun business at their new stand, just west of IlanHall II or I, with GO bicycles to repair. Not so bad for a starter. "Three Times and Out." The third appearance this season of Black Diamond Minstrels at Town Hall last Thursday evening was wit nessed and enjoyed bv a fair sized audience. Some of the songs and jokes were different from thone on the program of the previous perform ances. The singers were in good voice, the orchestral music was very good, and all in all, "thethird night" was a success in every manner. Letter to Powers & Cheney. Morrisville, Vt. Pear Sir: Your business is, when a house burns down, to give the owner some money to build a new one. It is a good business. Queer that the world got on so long with out it. We paint the one that burnt down and the new one too. What is bet ter, we paint the house that don't burn down. You injure the houses that burn ; we insure the houses that don't. You have the anhes and emoke; all the houees are ours. We paint lead and zinc: Devoe. We sell the paint to painters; wedont paint. Lead and oil is the old-fashion paint. Devoe is zinc ground in with the lead and linseed oil same pro portions as ueei by U. S. Govern ment: the best paint in the world: and the cheapest, because the work is all done by machinery. Nobody wants poor paint; there's lots of it, thousrb, in the world. Yours truly, 19 F. W. Devoe & Co. F. S. Geo. W. Doty sells our paint in your section. Who Will Succeed Justice Gray? The retirement of Justice Gray, of the federal Supreme Court, believed to be near, aromes di-cussion as to his successor. Several contempora riee.q'ioted elsewhere, speak strongly for Judge Hoyt H. Wheeler, now of the district and circuit court. There was a similar suggestion some years ago when a previous vacancy oc curred. No better appointment cer tainly could ever be made. Judge Wheeler ever since he cmne here from Williamsville a green boy, to study law here in Brattleboro with Dorr Bradley and in every place he has held has grown to its full measure. He has his limitations as do all men; but in the realm of law and its kin dred lines of thought he is indisputa bly a master, with a marvelously clear and cogent mind and that pow er of resolving questions into their simple and fundamental dements that mans analysis to tbe bottom and that forms the basis of compre hensive knowledge. II" used to be criticised as too mueh inclined to turn issues On technicalities. But if tfiat was ever so, thw broadening t ffjct of his long service on t he bench with its 32 years of 'clear and high thinking has obliterated any undue tendency in that direction. The ap pointment, if Justice Gray retires, will naturally come to New England, and there is no fitter place for it to alizht than right here. Brattleboro Reformer. NigHt Was Her Terror. "I would cough nearly all night long," writes Mrs. Chas. Applegate, of Alexandria, Ind., "and could hard ly get any sleep. I had consumption so bad that if I walked a block 1 would cough frightfully and spit blood, but, when all other medicines failed, three $1.00 bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery wholly cured me and I gaiued 58 pounds." It's absolutely guaranteed to cure Coughs, Colds, La Grippe, Bronchitis and all Throat and lung Troubles. Prices 50c and $1.00. Trial bottles free at H. J. D smell's drug store. America's Exports Continue to Increase. The total of America's exports keeps on growing. The reason for this is that America makes better goods than the rest of the world, makes them cheaper, and can usually fill orders quicker. This condition of things is of the highest sort of conse quence, and it is caused by teveral considerations abundance of raw material, low rate for the use of money, and superiority in inventive ness and manual skill. A Horrible Outbreak "Of largo sores on my little daugh ter's head developed into a case of scald head" writes C. D. Isbell of Morgantown, Tenn., but Bucklen's Arnica Salve completely cured her. It's a guaranteed cure for Eczema, Tetter, Salt Itueum, Pimples, Sores, Ulcers and Piles. Only 25e at U. J. Dwinell's drug store. Our social insolences, our irritating matters, our censorious judgment, our venomous letter, our pin-pricks in conversation, are all form of de liberate unkindness, and are all evi dences of an ill conditioned nature. CASTOR I A For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Signature of THERMOMETER RECORD. Morrisville Man Has Taken "Observations" During the Past Ten Years. C. A. Sanders of Morrisville kindly furnishes this paper with an article upon the weather, including a ther mometer record taken every February during tbe past ten years, as follows : Morrisville, Vt., March 4, 1901. Editor News and Citizen: These words of Confucius were very good: "Let us all live in peace as brothers." But, when we meet people, at the present degree of pro gress, who still adhere to the old superstitions maintained by people in the days of Confucius, we feel like disputing their over credulity. Many people believe that when the Sun crosses the line, whichever direction the wind may be, will be the prevail ing wind the next following several months. The last time, the wind was East and South, during three days, and all the time during the crossing. The prevailing wind, ever since, has been Northwest, and largely South. I have kept a dairy the laBt tbirty five years, and for several recentyears have made observations which en ables me to dispute all superstitious savings, such as "the woodchuck on Candlemas Day," "Christmas for each following month of the year," " t he position of the new moon " and others, and particularly the "goose bone" sign. Some people when looking at a new moon term it a wet or a dry moon. Science claims the form of a crescent has no connection with the weather. You will notice the horns of tbe moon always point from the Sun. When the new moon is in tbe same degree of latitude with the Sun it will lay fiat, and when the moon journeys Southward, at every degree of lati tude it will become more perpendicu lar, or what some people call a wet moon. I am able to prove from observations that the moon has nothing to do with wet or dry weather. It may sometimes rain when the moon is in eitber pot-i tion. The moon running " high" or 'low" is another very superstitous idea in regard to cold or warm weath er. My record shows when the moon runs lowest, declinati-i 8outh, the coldest spells of weather; and when running high, the warmest. The most iidiculous of all superstitious beliefs is planting in the old or new moon. The best time to plant is when the soil is right. The year 1900 was exceptional for its sudden and potent changns of weather on record. Scientific study reveals the planets grouped on the same side of the Sun, except Neptune, an event which has had no au . hen t ic record in past time, and, it is said that t he same may not happen for a long time again. Some of these changes may be interesting to remember. September 18, 1900, everything looked fine, vegetation progressed fairly well, but did not mature. That night the thermome ter went below lretzing, vegetatives were badly damaged ; anothersudden change October 16; wind South in the morning 1 went out and picked nearly a pint ot nice red raspberries, at noon thermemeter 67; in less than two hours the wind was North west, thermometer 46, and tbe fol lowing morning snow on tbe hills, the ground frozen. October 23 was the warmest day in 29 years in corres ponding months, thermometer went up to 80. The severe changes con tinued until January 20, 1901, when the thermometer went down to 27 below zero, and in just twenty-four hours temperature had changed sixty degrees warmer. The wind, in the month of January 1901, was North west 23 days and February 27 days. Some weather prophets said we were to have a short and open winter, and an early spring. Snow came on the 25 ot November last, since which time good sleighing has been enjoyed. Plenty of snow to day. February 1901, was a severe cold month, wind in the North day and night a little more than twenty-six davs. Theonly days up to freezing mirk were Feb. 19.35; Feb. 25, 32 and Feb. 2G, 40. Lowest thermometer 18 below zero. Below is a record of the February average of the thermemeter the last ten years: Year Morning. Noon.

Selected Items of Interest That Everybody Should Head and Remember. Commercial reeding Stuffs. The feeding frtnff inspection estab lished at the Vermont experiment station is beginning to work. The station is just sending out another bulletin giving additional results of the year's inspections and analyses. This shows that 226 samples of feeding stuffs have been analyzed. These were collected, mostly from dealers, during the fall of 1U00. Cottonseed, linseed and gluten feeds were all found to be free from ad ulteration, though as might have been expected, the various brands showed considerable variation in composi tion. Some of them were better than others; and the station analyses will help buyers in picking out the best. Amongst oat feeds, corn and oat feeds, provenders and the like, the conditions were found not so satis factory. Some brands contained con siderable quantities of oat hulls, more than they ought to have were the goods made of "pure grains ground together," as suggested in the state law. Such feeds, of course, are in ferior quality. The farmer Bhould buy something else. Bran, middlingsand mixed (wheat) feeds are exempt from the state in spection, but, so far as they were ex amined this year seem to be fairly good grade. Paint Your Buggy For 75 Cents.

The "elephant beetle" of Venezuela Is the largest Insect in the world. A. full-growu one weighs about half a sound. The choir boys of St George'? Chapel, Windsor Castle, in accordance with ancient custom, have the risjht, to claim five shillings as "spur money" from any military man wearing his spurs In church during service. The most characteristic feature of Si berian farm life is that the farmers live not scattered all over the country, remote from neighbors, but In villagcu as near as possible to land they are cultivating. The. municipal control of the ga3 works at Rochdale, England, is so suc cessful that a profit of $05,000 has been turned over toward reducing the rates. Camels cannot swim. They are very buoyant, but ill balanced, and their heads go under water. They can, how ever, be taught to swim rivers with the aid of goatskins or jars fastened under their necks. During the Beluchistan expedition of 1898 the camels were low ered into the sea from the ships, and their drivers, plunging overboard, clambering on to the back of their charges, causing the animals' heads to come up; and thus assisted, they wero successfully piloted ashore. In Berlin, advertisements In tho Streets are allowed only on boards or columns especially prepared for -the purpose. These are to be erected under the supervision of the local magistrates of the police presidency. The adver tisements must not be printed on red paper. Flashlight advertising is pro hibited altogether. All street adver tisements must pay a tax. Berlin re ceives an income from this source of 63,750 per annum. There Is a spider In the London Zoo, obtained from somewhere in the Sou dan, that is the fiercest bea3t cf h s kind that ever spread out his legs in a menagerie. The ordinary spider has only four legs on a side. This creature has five, and those who have seen him find his counterpart in the terrible "devil-fish" described by Victor Hugo in his "Tollers of the Sea." ,The scien tific name of the terror io Galeodes. There are four cardinal points, four winds, four quarters of the moon, four seasons, four figures In the quadrille, four rules of arithmetic, four suits ot cards, four quarters to the hour. We have four incisor and four canine teeth, and our forks have four prongs. The violin, greatest of all strins; instru ments, has but four strings. Four nf a kind is a pretty good hand at poker, even if they are only fours. . DO YOU DO THESE THINGS It Is bad manners to make remarks about the food at dinner. To talk about things which only in terest yourself. To contradict your friendu when they are speaking. To grumble about your home and rel atives to outsiders. To say smart things which may hurt some one's feelings. To'dfeS3"habbily In the morning be cause no one will see you. To be rude to those who serve you, cither In shopis or at home. To think first of your own pleasuro when you are giving a party. To refuse ungraciously when some body wishes to do you a favor. To behave in a street car or train as if no one else had a right to be there. To speak disrespectfully to any one older than yourself GEMS FROM EMMA CARLETON Many persons fancy they are cul tured, when, in fact, they are only bookish. Getting time to mind one's own busi ness Is more difficult than minding it. Reputation is a bubble which a man bursts when he tries to blow It for him self. It Is all right to call a spade a spade, but modern novelists seem to "want to call it a manure shovel. There are no humorists' clubs; hu morists cannot exchange ideas without giving away good copy. Repartee is any remark which Is so clever that it makes the listener wish he had (said it himself. When a woman has an unhappy lovo affair it adds to her unhappiness that she cannot go around and tell of it. Plagiarism Is often only taking another writer's poorly expressed thought and giving it to the world in good shape. Getting famous li not by any means bo arduous a task as staying so. Some writers are famous for the books they have written. Others for the books they ought to have written. When the avera-ee man talks of sit ting In sackcloth and ashes he always means broadcloth and cigar ashes. The heart always pays the highest price for the happiness it has never purchased. Belief In a personal devil is a sura sign of profound spiritual laziness. Man was made to mourn, but most widowers think he was made to mourn nly one year. FEMININE OBSERVER It would be a good thing if every time we are tempted to say a mean thing we could first try It in a phono graph to see how It sounds. 1 Our greatest pleasures are those we share with others. Why Is It so many of the gentler sex are called "summer girls?" Have we not "summer men" also? More Jewelry than ever is being worn. No young man can hope to marry to please all his relatives, nor a young lady, either, for that matter. It takes a courageous woman to paaa under a ladder. More than one woman spends a lot f money on a best black silk which she saves up for 31 and occaoions; then when the time comes around to wear It she spends a lot more money getting It altered up-to-date.
