It is.witli much regret that we liavo to announce today that Col. (Ieorge T. Childs whom the 11. B. Cramlall I'ost No. 56, G. A. R. were so fortunate as to se cure for a Memorial Day speaker will be unable to bo in attendance on account of a sudden and serious illness. Col. Childs is a popular speaker and one of the best known men in the slate. The people of Barre were congratulating themselves that he was to deliver the address, and now there is a double cause for regret, in the solicitude for his health and, the disappointment caused by the news that he cannot be present. In response to a letter written to Col. Childs on Monday the Evicnini; Tki.k gkam received the following reply : Epitok Evening Tei.kouam. Dear Sir. Your letter of May 2;Srd to my father, Col. George T. Childs, received yesterday. In reply I have to say that he has been eon fined to his room and bed since Friday and is now prohibited from the transaction of any business. Although improving his at tendant physician absolutely forbids any mental and physical exertion for some days to come. He has therefore been obliged to advise the committee of ar rangements of Crandall Post, Xo. 60, of the impossibility of fulfilling Ids en gagement with them, lie begs mo to express his sincere regret that the sit uation should be such and to assure you that nothing but a question involving his health would have prevented him from being in attendance in Barre on the !30'h. Thanking you on his behalf for your courtesy, I remain, Yours respectfully . Harold I). Ciiii.ds. Just before going to press -Rev. J. Edward Wright has accepted an invita tion to deliver the address. . A SUGGESTION. WHAT TIIK I'OST-M ASTEK SAYS Al'.ol T ;i;ttin; moke cakkikks. When the people of Barre read the now letter earner schedule widen nas been handed to the post-master to carry out. there will probably be a good deal of fault-linding. Some of those who have been receiv ing their mail twice a day will in the future only receive it once a day and some will be compelled to call at Ihe office to get it. It will be a great in convenience to some, while with others who live near the center it will make no material difference, l'ost-inaster Mc Whorler has done all in his power to get better service; for the people of Barre for some time, and lie has failed, but the fault does not lay with him. If it was under his jurisdiction there would be no question but that this city would have as good a carrier service as any city in the State. An Evening Tki.k;ham reporter had a little conversation with the post master yesterday afternoon and he had a suggestion to make to the people of Bari-e"whieh ought to be appreciated. He said that there was no question that Barre is in need of better carrier service;. If the residents of liarre would circu late a petition for the same and get a large number of signatures and forward it to Congressman Grout, he would use his influence and Barre would have a first class mail service by the 1st of July. The term of the Congressman runs out in a short time and he would bo none too glad to get on the right side of the oeonle of Barre and will do all in his oower to hell) them Who is the first to start this movement r CLAN GORDON N Of ICS.

The As sociated Tress has obtained definite in formation which confirms the news of the arrival of the Spanish fleet at San tiago. Washington, May 25. In reply to queries to the President this morning he said the report that Cervera is bot tled up in Santiago harbor is undoubt edly true. Secretary Long said it is supposed that he went in there for coal, Schley can have whatever aid lie wants and it is only a question of hours when the Spanish navy will lay down its arms before tin; mighty power of the western hemisphere. How the boasted strategy of the Spanish navy allowed Cervera to be caught in this manner cannot be ans wered bv the American naval ofllecrs who maintained a wholesome respect for this opponent. Will Serve Spain. Mapuid, May 25. An official des patch from Manila announces that most of the chiefs who led the recent insur rection have presented themselves to the Spanish Governor General and announc ed their intention to serve Spain.

Dor cey, n prominent niachinest here, was found dead early this morning near his hotel. His face and head were bruised beyond recognition.

One hundred Ihousand dol lars has been spent on buying mules this week. American Bark Released. London. May 25. A despatch just received hero from Hong Kong says that the American bark Saranae, which was captured by the Spaniards at Iloilo has heen released. . News of the Oregon. Washington. May 25. Secretary Long has received an official despatch announcing the arrival of the Oregon in Jupiter Inlet, Florida. The fact was reported to the president immediately. At 10 o'clock this morning Secretary Long said that he had received no offi cial news of the bottling up of Cervera in Santiago harbor by Schley. All he had heard was the press reports, still he said that he had rc ison to credit these reports. The latest press accounts say that Cervera with his whole squadron is inside the narrow passage which leads to Santiago and that Schley is outside the gate, not making any preparations to rap and eules, but wailing for Cer vera to come out and greet him, while the Spaniard on the inside is waiting to see what his visitor will do, following out tiie old fable of the spider and the lly, except that the fly is not one of the ordinary kind. If the report of the sit ualion is true in every particular Cer vera is sure to surrender or the whole fleet of which he is in command will be annihilated.

One hun dred and twelve thousand men have now been mustered into the United States service. A majority are ready to move to the front. 'Iwo-thirds of the States have already completed their muster. The failure of some southern states to furnish the men called for is surprising to army officers. It is not regarded as alack of patriotism! but on account of home ties many members ex pect men unhampered by such ties to enlist iirst. Shot His Son-in-Law. M ancm i.sTEii, X. II., May 25. A special to the Union says that Benjamin C. Young, one of the most respectable citizens of Stewerlstown, shot his son-in-law, Ira A. Reed, late Monday night. Rued died from the effects of the wound yesterday. Weed had an ungovernable temper and was considered very dan gerous, lie frequently beat his wife and four-year-old son. He took them to a chopping-block and threaten ed to cut their heads off. His wife left him Sunday and Reed declared he would come to to the house and kill the whole family. Young was afraid and watched all night. When Reed came hi; raised his rii'.o and .-hot at Young, but the 1 itler was too quick for liiin and shot him in the hip. Reed died. ion: I.: i'r-'pr. ro Water Them Wlit-ll No Hot 1:1 tit llllllfl. Fomentations of hot or cold water aro often very useful, and every one should know bow to f.;ive them. A flannel cloth may bo folded, wrung out of hot or cold water as is desired and applied directly to tho skin. It is much better after wringing out tins llannel as dry as de fired to fold it iu a dry fliu:nil cloth of one or two thicknesses t i tore applying it to the patient. A little time is re quired for tho beat of the fomentation to penetrate tho dry flannel, and thus the skin is allowed an opportunity to acquire tolerance for the heat, and a higher dofri e of temperature can bo boruo if tho moist cloth is brought di rectly into contact with tho surface. Tho outer fold of dry flannel will also servo to keep tho cloth warm by pre venting evaporation. A hot fomentation is sometimes need ed whtu no hot water is at hand. It is not necessary to wait for water to bo heated in the? usual way. Soak tho Man tel in cold water, vriuR as dry as do sired, fold in a newspaper and lay upon tho stove or wrap it. about tho stove pipe. Iu a few minutes it will bo as warm as the patient can bear. The pa per keeps the pipo from becoming moistened by the wet flannel and at tho same time prevents tho flannel from being soiled t y contact with the pipe. Fomentations thoroughly applied will relievo most of the local pains for which liniments, lotions and poultices aro gen erally applied and tiro greatly to be pre ferred to these remedies since the&aro cleaner and aid nature more effectually in restoring the injured parts to a sound condition. The fomentation may be changed fre- pjueutly, and after it has been removed massage may be given cither by tho per son himself or another, so as to strengthen the part and promote a bet ter chi ulutii.u of blood iu it.
