Death of Mrs. Ida Churchill Mrs. Ida Churchill, who has been seri ously ill from a complication of diseases for several weeks, died Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock, the immediate cause of death being cerebral apoplexy. Mrs. Churchill was taken ill on Christmas day and has been confined to her bed nearly all the time since that date, al though at times she had seemed greatly improved. Ida Cleora Matthews Churchill, was born in Fort Covington, N. Y., Sept. 26, 1853, one of three daughters of O. Dwight and Roxana Spaulding Mat thews, her two sisters dying when quite young. At the age of three years she moved with her parents to Builington where she received her schooling ard musical education, and where thev re mained until she was 17, when they moved to Stowe, where her father en gnged in the hardware businesss. In 1851 she was united in marriage to j A. At. lnurctnn. Alter their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Churchill resided in Stowe fur a short time, coming from there to this place where he engaged in the hard ware business and where she has since resided, his death occurring Dee. 1, 1895. For the past 30 years she had occupied the house, where she died. The deceased was organist of the Uni versalist church for 30 years, of which church she was a member, being a regular attendant and a most liberal supporter and worker. She was also a member of the Mission Circle aud Woman's Club. Mrs. Churchill was a woman" of many excellent qualities and had a large circle of friends who sincerely mourn her death. The funeral services were held from her late home this afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. R. D. Cranmer officiating, and burial was made in Riverbank Cemetery in Stowe beside the remains of her hus band. The bearers were three nephews C.'H. A. Stafford and VV. F. Churchill of this place and D. A. Barrows of Johns' son, and a cousin, Charles McGaffey of Burlington. The Morrisville Band The newly re-organized Morrisville Band is progressing finely. Many of the former members and several new ones nave Deen aauea ana trie Band is now largely made up of activeyoung material and has a membership of twenty-eight with that live and starling musician, Don Sanders, as leader. Rehearsals arc held twice a week and when "The good old summer time" returns it is expected that those popular out-door concerts will be among the attractions this village offers to her people and visiters from surround ing towns. C. C. Warrtn of VVaterbury was in town Monday. The post office at Morristown Corners will be discontinued after March 15th. Mrs. Mary Dubray, who is suffering from pneumonia, is more comfortable. The union temperance meeting at the M. E. church Sunday evening was well attended and proved a very enthusiastic meeting. Friends here have received news of the birth on Mar. 3, of a nine pound son to Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Hope of Boston. Mrs. Hope was formerly Miss Jessie Wombell of this village. The Mission Circle will meet at 2:30 Thursday afternoon of this week with Mrs. Lizzie Fisher at her home on Sum mer street. All ladies interested in the work of the Universalist church are cordially invited to be present. The W. R. C. monthly social for Feb ruary met last Thursday afternoon with Mrs. Gilman Barrows. The rooms were prettily decorated with red, white and blue tissue paper streamers and tiny flags, in memory of the birthday anni versary of George Washington. Each lady was presented with a tiny hatchet as a souvenir ol the occasion. AnecdoUa of his life, of both serious and com e nature, were read by a number ol ladies present and Miss Althea Reynolds gave a very interesting paper on "Mount Vernon," his late home and other inter esting places seen during her late south ern trip. Mrs. Allen Philips read an amusing sketcn trom I be Habitant Papers, whien was tnucn enjoyed flffor XO ColleCflOll I 'which refreshments of cake and coffee J were served. Morristown Town Meeting At the usual hour on Tuesday the vjiers of Morristown assembled at town hall to carry out the time-honored cus tom of closing up the year's business- the election of the new set of officials and planning the business of the coming year so far as possible. Moderator, T. C. Cheney called the as semblage to order and celled for nomina tion for Moderator. Mr. Cheney's name was the only one mentioned and he was duly elected to succeed himself as soon as Town Clerk, Niles called for the vote. In the same spirit Town Clerk Niles was re elected 0$ Clerk for the 14th time. At thi' req-jestfof Moderator Cheney, M. I' Maurice explained the primary ballot. On motion of C. H. A. Stafford the printed report of the official nets of the town officers was adopted, with a few corrections, which did not materially effect the tctfals. The question of the selection of one or more road commissioners by the Select men was apparently votee down by a viva voice procedure, but upon a ballott being taken, the selection was left with tlie Selectmen. C. F. Sn-ith was elected Selectman for the three-year term and for the second Selectman R. J. Caswell and Guy damp bell were placed in nomination, the vote standing as follows: Number votes cast, 214; necessary for a choice, 123; Campbell, '155; Caswell, 8G. ' II. L. Stevens was selected for First Constable, For second in rank, the i:;i;nes ol J. R. Parker, Harry Neuland a:;l George E. Town were brought for ward arid all refused to have honors t :.i u.st upon them. f. R. Parker finally c i Tied oif the honors. The spirited contest of the meeting was over the tlcction of a menhber of the s.'hool board, when the names of Geo. I. A. Smith (to succeed himself) and George II. Terrill vveie brought forward. (J. II.. A. Stafford in a few pertinent remarks brought out the fact that the school board was in the midst of working out an untried problem in educational mat ters and should not be changed, a mat ter that appeared to strike the voters as being correct, for it was upheld by a vote ofI57to38. The election of C. H. Richardson as Lister for three years, and W.M. Sargent as Trustc.'.of public money followed. Then quickly followed the election of C. H. A. Stafford, II. A. Slayton and Levi Munson as.Auditors; T. C. Cheney as First Town Grand Juror and R. VV. Eaton as Second Grand Juror; A. A. Niles as Treasurer; F. G. Fleetwood as as Legal Agent; M. B. White as Ceme tery Commissioner for five years and 0. VV. Chaffee as Overseer of Poor. In the line of appropriations $50 was voted for Memorial Day; $25 as a pre mium in Agricultural work by schools; $200. to the Band provided ten concerts were given during the summer; $200 to the Morrisville Fire Department, and $1000 to State Aid for Roads. The 15th article in the Warning, relat. ing to tree warden was passed over. The McDermott case was brought up by George VV. Clark, but as it had not been included in the warning, was with drawn. Town finances was practically the last order of business a summing up of town demands and how to meet them. It was started about by Judge Powers, in a motion of a $2.25 tax on the dollar levy. This was debated by others pro and con and a two dolla vote finally reed to and voted. It is expected that this will meet all demands and leave a little for a sinking fund. Thin was completed what may be properly called Town Meeting routine, what the fathers so considered before the 'cult" and progressives came to be the vogue. The license box did not close until three o'clock p. m. and was a tame affair, as the "promoters" were not in evidence and only about a third of the voters re sponded to a choice. The vote stood 245 no to 81 yes. In spite of the fact that it was more than a three to one victory for temperance in a light vote, it still remains patent that a full vote might produce a change, very unpleasant to the victors. The druggist proposition was "snowed under," being 38 yes and 217 no. The following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That the total tax vote for the ensuing year, including all taxes awssed by .law, shall be $2.00 on the dollar of the Grand List. Of this sum, sucb amount shall be set apart to the various departments in the same amounts as shown by the expenses of these de partments last year, or so much thereof as may be necessary, and the balance ap plied on the indebtedness of the town. Thnt a discount of four per cent be al lowed on all taxes paid to the Treasurer on or before November 1, 1914. Grand Jurors J. H. Atchinson, G. S. Stancliffe, G. VV. Clark, VV. S. Newcomb, . p.

Senator Sherwin and A. J. Saleeby of Johnson were in town last Monday Tbey reported "nothing doin' " there that day, but predicted "something do. in' " there town meeting day. Judging from reports their predictions were not 1 far from correct. The executive committee of the Village Improvement Association held a meeting Monday evening at which several bills were ordered paid and other business transacted. There are a few subscrip tions to stock still unpaid, which it is hoped will be taken care of at once. Two brothers named Conway, who have been working in the lumber woods at Stowe, were lodged in jail last Satur day charged with drunkeness and assault, offenses committed last fall.

The Ladies' Club outdid itself last Fri day night in its "gentlemen's night" en tertainment at the Inn. It was "the best ever." The interesting program, which included a "fruit pie."

This will be an evening of "Musical Not cities," by T. S. Russell with a variety oi musical instruments, in playing which, he is an expert. He will be assisted by Misg Uornholt, a baritone soloist aud dramat ic reader. The finances of the course are on the wrong side and the committee would like to see a liberal patronage not only because of a splendid entertain, ment, but to help out on the deficiency. It might be well to state that this defi ciency is mainly owing to tue iuct that a more expensive and better course was se cured this season than heretofore.
