Who Will Speak
COL. CHILDS ILL.
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.

Edward Wright has accepted an invita

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
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

Fleet at Santiago Sure.
Tout Af Pkinve, May 25. 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. It is
said here that the Spanish prisoners of
war of the United States si ill complain
that they are treated as convicts.
Washington, May 25. The Presi
dent has issued a call for 75, ODD more

Alger said this afternoon that the ad
ditional volunteers are not to be recruit
ed from the National Guard as was the
others, but the enlistment will lie open.
The call indicates a determination to
push the campaign vigorously.

Key West. May 25. James J. Dor
cey, n prominent niachinest here, was
found dead early this morning near his
hotel. His face and head were bruised
beyond recognition. He was paid off
last night and was murdered for his
money, This crime, together with the
assault by the negros upon the sailors
last night, has roused f'e people to de
mand that the city be placed under
martial law. There are only two po
licemen in the city.

Sr. Eons, May 25 The assistant
quartermaster general hereof the army
has received orders to buy mules with

. 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
German Story Denied.
15r.ui.iN, May 25 It is semi officially
denied that there is any truth in the
story from Manila regarding the Ger
man Consul's threatening Diw y for

night left this noon. Destination unknown.
Do Not Lack Patriotism.
Wasiiin;von, May 25. 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
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.

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

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

A hot fomentation is sometimes need

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.
