The burning of an additional building at the Industrial school at Vergenues last week, this time the barn, valued at about $ 15,000, set fire by an imbecible boy, is no loss to the state because it was fully insured. Theargument is advanced, however, that the building might have been saved had there been an abundance of water. To rebuild the first burned building and the barn will require a large outlay and of course a more modern in- c'ock. stitution must be erected.

It is a good farm, near enough to Morrisville to be easy of access but outside of the village. Per haps if Morristown should get buy the institution might be located here. Why not? While it would be a good thing for the town it would certaiulv be much better for the state than its present Io- j cation. I Pair of Horses Killed Last Monday afternoon a pair of horses belonging to Fred Jackson of Gar field, hitched to traverse sleds, and driven by his son, Leon, were left for a moment in front of the residence of Will Twiss on Court street. Almost as soon as left they started on a dead run and came out on Congress street, thence went down Portland turned in at the depot and struck the track east of the freight house and, went up towards Tenney bridjre at rapid gait. The freight train coining from the east was a few minutes late and met the runaways at a turn in the track about two rods this side of Tenney bridge. The curve there is so abrupt that they were not seen by the train hands and the first the engineer knew that he had struck something was when the crash came. On looking out he found the forward part of the sleds across the pilot of the engine 'and along side of the cars the bodies of the two horses. They were instantly killed. En gineer Delaney at first thought a driver was with the team, but greatly relieved to learn that nobody was with them. The horses were valued at about $350 and it is a severe loss to Mr. Jackson, who is a hard working man. For School Director There are various sorts of rumors con cerning town officials to be elected next week. It is not within our power to enumerate the qualities of this or that man. Morristown always makes wise selections by choosing the man best fitted for the place. This no doubt will be the case this year. We want to speak, how ever of one office that is to be filled and that is a member of t he board of School Directors. Geo. I. A. Smith, who has done good service on the board for 12 years, is we understand, not a candidate for re-election. With' this in view the friends of Harry Neuland intend to, pre sent his name. This young man is in every way well fitted for the place. He is one of the enterprising and progressive farmers of this town, takes an active in terest in all public affairs and especially along educational lines. He would make a excellent member of the board and we believe the town would make no mistake in selecting this industrious and worthy young man for the position named. Sintvi going to press, we have been re quested by Mr. Smith to state that we have been misinformed as to his attitude with reference to further service by him on the School Board and that if the town should honor him by are election that he would accept the same. Union Service Prof. Raymond McFarland of MiJdle bury College delivered an address at the union service at the Methodist church last Sunday evening that fully justified all the good things that had been said about it in anticipation of his coming. A large congregation greeted the speaker and listened eagerly to the message on "The Making of a Man." The speaker pointed out the three agencies that are most potent in making human lifo what it is Heredity, Environment and Will, showing in a concise and scholarly way the part which each plays in fashioning the man or woman, the crowning work of the Creator. Prof. McFarland will find appreciative hearers whenever he speaks in Morrisville. At the next union service, which will be hel-.I at the Congregational church Sunday evening, March 8, Hon. C. W. G ites, State Highway Commissioner, will be tlie speaker, i Death of Capt. G. J. Lewis A telegram received by his nephew, C. II.

If we have no sorrows, liquor creates them ; and if we have them, it increases them and makes them harder to bear. It blights the voting man as lightning does a tree, and leaves him stripped of hjs heritage. It takes from middle age ambition and hope, and robs old age of its serenity and peace. It is the thief of character. It turns men into monsters and women into harlots. It invades the ballot box to corrupt it. It weakens the administration of justice. It is the polluted stream which mingles with the current of public affairs and poisons all it touches. Whenever it comes it brings a sorrow, and whenever it goes it leaves a remorse. ' Liquor ! liquor ! how I hate it ! I hate it for what it has done to me and those I love ! I hate it for what it has done for Others ! to the state ! and to my country ! I hate it with every fiber oi my being with every passion of my soul ! ' . , I hate it for the tears it has caused to flow, for the blood it has shed, for the homes and happiness it has wrecked, for the men and women it has ruined -Ex-Gorcrn$ M. R.

A. 17-Morrisville 31 The Morrisville Town Team again demonstrated their ability to play fast basket ball by defeating the Peoples Academy Agricultural classes 17 to 31 last Fridav evening-'"'' The game was decidedly interesting and deserved better attendance both from the student body and the townspeople. The management of the Town Team wishes to inform the public that it is their intention to give a serks of games with the best teams of the stale as op- ponents. These games are o lie strict ly basket ball games and free from the so- called slugging matches in so fir asitlles in the power of the management to make them so. They wish to say further that playing under professional rules the games will of necessity be just a little rougher and faster than the game as plaj-ed under amateur rules and allow ance must be made for this, but they also assure you that there will lie no prize fights as the price of admission is rather inadequate to warrent any such treat to those who ca.e to see them. The game last Friday night was notice ably from roughness and was a fast and interesting game throughout; Follow ing is the line-up and summary : P. A. A.
