THE VERMONT PHOENIX, BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1893.
BELLOWS FALLS NEWS.
The I'rclcrnl Ofllces.
The probable result of tlio contest for
the two Federal ollleen at Bellows Falls is
Interesting our people just now. Our Dem
ocratic friends arc divided Into two wing?,
one. composed latgely of the IrUh-Ameil-can
citizens) the oilier of Yankee extrac
tion. The former largely outnumber the
latter, llclng so largely repiwented, and
supplied with good timber In their ranks,
they demand recognition with at least one
of the offices. The office of stamp deputy
of Internal revenue, to which Geo. A. Wes
ton was appointed in Dee., I860, for four
years, Is attract lug the most attention, as It
depends upon which wing of the patty gets
that as to who will be supported for post
master bynch wing. For stomp deputy
arc Eugene E. Keefe, hacked by a petition
of about 200 local Democrats. Eugene S.
Leonard, who Is also supported by n large
local following, T. E. O'Urlen, who has
not attempted much locally, but Is depend
ing largely upon influence oulblde of Uel
lows Falls, and Fred II. Kimball, who
claims to be entirely solid with "the powers
that (are to) be" in the line of the Atkins
following, but who has been talked little
about locally. So it will be seen each wing
has two lively candidates, each of whom
considers himself certain of the place.
For postmaster two petitions only have at
tained any length, those of Charles V. Htit
tcrfleld and Daniel 11. Cray. The former
has the support almost unanimously of the
business portion of the patrons of the office,
and many good names are on the latter.
Mr. Cray evidently depends largely upon
the appointment of one of his nationality
as stamp deputy for his success as postmas.
ter, and we understand will at once with
draw his name should either Keefe or
O'Urlen be succes-ful. The Irish-Americans
lay claim to one of the. offices on the
ground of "their rights" which, as far as
numbers go, are well grounded. In our
judgment either petition for postmaster
would have been stronger had it contained
the clause "at the expiration of the term
of office of the present appointee," for we
think hardly any of our people would favor
a removal of Sir. Cannon any more than
they did that of Mr. Guild.
Tim IVorth Wnlpnle Water Syxlem.
.Nathaniel Monroe, the veteran resident
of North Walpole, who owns the water sys
tem of that village, gives some Interesting
points shown by his books. He furnishes
181 different families, and there are 10 or
17 only who do not take from his system.
This shows the total number of families
there to be just about 200. The average
Income ban been 10 families per year dur
ing the past 10 years, indicating that our
suburban sister has doubled in number in
that time number added the past year, 15.
Ills rents now amount to $1104 per year;
132 families are supplied from a large res
ervoir of "000 gallons, located -10 feet above
the village, fed by a few springs above It,
but principally from springs where the
Bridgman fish ponds used to be, the water
being pumped up into the reservoir by a
large water wheel in the brook. Next sea
son he expects to put In a steam engine for
pumping in place of the wheel. The main
pipe from this reservoir is inches in
diameter, and of cement instead of iron.
The rest of the families are supplied from
the first aqueduct, which was in use In the
village 20 years ago.
A. F. Wlnnerwisser has been in Boston
this week, buying new goods.
C. W. Osgood was accompanied to Wash

The annual ice harvest began on the
river last week, and Is of excellent quality,
14 inches thick. None had been cut from
Minard's pond up to Monday, but work
was to be begun there this week.
Mrs. E. J. Fullerton, Mrs. N. G. Wil

John G. Church, formerly ticket agent
here, and who has traveled for the New
York Central railroad the past three years,
has received the appointment of traveling
freight agent of the Central Vermont, un
der Traffic Manager Emerson. He began
his new duties January 1, and will move
to Rutland from Somerville, Mass. His
wife is spending some time In town with
her father, Randolph Dodge.
Frank Burge, driver for the Fall Moun
tain Paper company, is now the driver for
the steamer of the fire department. His
family is soon to occupy the tenement In
the second story of the new engine house
on Bridge street, to which the steamer has
been moved. An apparatus has been con
nected with the large coal stove In the en
gine room, so the water in the steamer
boiler is kept hot and ready for use at any
time. A. L.. 1'ike, the former driver, has
bought of Ira Earl e two heavy truck teams,
and all Mr. Earle's business for the mills.
The many friends of F. F. Ball were
pained Saturday to learn that ho had been
seriously Injured that morning by being
thrown out of his sleigh upon the frozen
ground. He had been to his snath shop
after some shavings and kindlings, and in
turning into his yard his sleigh slewed
around on the ice, throwing him out. He
struck partially on his head, badly bruis
ing him and rendering him unconscious
for the most of the day. He rallied from
the effects somewhat, and seems now In a
fairway to recovpr fully, although still con
fined to the house.
Owing to the extreme dry and cold weath
er of the past lew weeks the water in the
river Is getting low enough to interfere se
riously with the running of all the mills at
oue time, and at times it is necessary to
shut down a part. On Monday the water
In the pond was 22 Inches above the pipe.
This is somewhat lower than an average
at this time of year, although not seriously
so. At times in the winter months there
has been six feet of water, and one or two
years it lias been necessary to pump at this
time. The stream running into the pond
from the new pipe line from brooks is very
mall, ami If the cold weather continues it
may freeze up entirely.

The ftrent I lull of China.
Tim scenery from the Great Wall is very
fine. The wall is here a dividing line be
tween the high, rugged hills of China, which
towel above us on the one hand, and the
great s,ndy plains of Mongolia on the other,
with dim mountain-summits beyond in the
far distance. Over these barren, rocky
spurs and acclivities, ascending to their
very summits, winding about in irregular
curves and zigzags, Its serried battlements
clear-cut against the sky on the topmost
ridges, descending into dark gullies to ap
pear again rising on the other side, the
endless line of massive stone and brick
runs on and on until lost to sight behind
the farthest range. And so it goes for
miles and miles, eastward to the I'echili
gulf, and westward, mostly in two great,
rambling lines, along the bonier of the
Gobi desert and Kansu, until it ends among
the foot-hills of the Nan Shan range. How
ever we may regard it, whether as a grand
conception for the defense of an empire, as
an engineering feat, or merely as a result
of the persistent application of human labor,
it Is a stupendous work. No achievement
of the present time compares with it In
But it has outlived its usefulness. The
powerful Tatar and Mongol hordes, whose
sudden raids and invasions it was built to
resist, are no more to be feared. The great
Genghis and Kublai could not lead their
people to gory conquest now as they did
centuries ago. The Chinese civilization
has endured, while the once conquering
Mongols, the people who in their brightest
days established an empire from the Black
sea to the China coast, and a court at l'e
king of sucli luxury and splendor as Marco
Polo described, are now doomed to pass
away, leaving nothing behind them but the
traditions, and records, and ruins of a bril
liant past. The wall stands as a sharp lino
of division between the tribes of the North
and the Chinese. The latter, though re
peatedly subdued, and forced to bear a for
eign yoke, have shown an Irrepressible vi
tality to rise like a phcenix, and to reassert
their supremacy and the superiority of their
civilization. The Century Jor January.

that no one had got at his wealth. But
into the tin box had crept mildew. The

A ISootl Will Farm,
TUcy are trying what they call a Good
Will farm In Maine, with a considerable
degree of success. Had boys are sent to It
instead of to reform schools. On the farm
they are separated, as far as possible, Into
group), In a number of cottages that have
been erected. The Idea Is that In this way
the boys may be subject to the beneficial
Influences of home life. Tlio household
work in each of these families is divided
up among the boys, who also work on the
farm or In shops. The same thing is to be
tried in Massachusetts also. A farm has
been bought in U.mvcrs, on which it is
proposed to care for 500 homeless and des
titute children. Its distinctive feature, the
cottage syslem, might well be tried on a
larger scale In other states, in place of the
great institutions in which so many boys
and girls are huddled together.
