He took old place on the South Lee road on h the bank had a mortKace, and fixed p rather luxuriously. The commission- could get no sort of statement from i, and as a result the court removed i six weeks ago, appointing AV. C. Hiding in his place.

When a dep- and physician went to Hobbs's house nday they found him with both legs tlf.iseil in plaster casts. The physician loved these caits. One leg was perfect .vell and the other had been somewhat ised. The Indications are that Hobb3 morphine fiend, not fullv responsible his acts, and that he lost the missing ,000 in speculations.

A terrible accident occurred over In "Spencer Hollow" Thursday, which result ed fatally for Don M. Putnam, says the Springfield Reporter. In company with Frank Lockwood, who works for J. I).

A flock of partridges How up, and In endeavoring to shoot at the birds Putnam slipped and fell backwards, strik ing Lockwood's gun, which was discharg ed. The shot took effect in his back and he died in a very few minutes. Mr. Putnam was a bright, active young man of 21 years. His mother is Mrs. Thomas Madigan of Springfield.

A hatchet, sledge hammer and pick were left in the ollice by the burglars, who secured only a few dol lars from the outside drawer. The Claremont Advocate says : "A man In AA'indsor and a boy In AVeathersfield died last week of cerebro-spinal meningitis, and from the fact that the bodies turned black or became covered with black spots shortly after death, an erroneous and alarming re port as to the nature of their disease got into circulation." A SEA CLASSIC. "2I Vears at .Sea," by F. Stanhope II II I . "Twenty Years at Sea" is a book which is destined to be ranked as a sea classic. Its. author Is F. Stanhope Hill, editor of the Cambridge, Mass., Tribune, and it is published by Hougton, Milllln it Co. The best of his story Is that it is substantially true, for in his preface Captain Hill con fesses that he has taken "a little, a very little, license, such as must be allowed any old barnacle back when he starts out to spin a yarn." His story reads like a ro mance. It is more than 50 years since he first went to sea as a raw country boy in the good old ship Bombay forSouth Amer ica. That was before the steam boiler and the telegraph had driven all the romance out of the mariner's calling. Every am bitious youth had a chance for the quarter deck, and every quarter deck a chance for a fortune. Advancement for men of the right stamp was rapid. Captain Hill was a second mate at 17 and master of a full rigged ship at twenty-one. He met cy clones, mutinies and pirates, and In 18511, whilo still young, he left the sea forever, as he thought, with a snug little pile of savings, and set up his lares and penates in a pleasant Boston suburb. But two short years wasj all he was des tined to pass just then as a landsman. In April, '01, came the firing on Sumter, and while Capt, Hill's neighbors were go ing into the army he. naturally turned to the branch of the service with which he was more familiar. He was' one of the first of thousands of merchant ofilcers to join the volunteer navy from Massachu setts. On the steam frigate Kichmond he was with Farragut in his magnificent vic tory at New Orleans. Then he was order ed to take charge of a blockader in the Gulf of Mexico, and subsequently com manded the river gunboats Benton and Tyler, which bore such a useful part is as sisting the operation of the Union armies Thus Capt. Hill's career in the navy was an unusually varied and eventful one, and, like so many men who have done notable deeds, he has the faculty of crisp, concise and picturesque narrative. No manly boy can read the little book without a quicken ing of his patriotism. The book has a local Interest from the fact that Capt. Hill received his early edu cation in Brattleboro, being a pupil of the liev. Addison Brown, a former editor of The Phoenix. Mr. Hill went from here to begin his career as a sailor. Ho lived hero with his uncle, John H. Blake, afterward of the noted banking firm of Blake Broth ers, at what is now the corner of Main and Elliot streets. AVhen Capt. Hill was in Brattleboro last May at the burial of his cousin, Mrs. Mary Houghton, he related many facts of interest concerning the Brattleboro of 50 years ago. Death of a Jflexlcan at the uge of 11111 Years. The death of a man named Jose Cor tez at the age of 10:1 years, near the city of Morelia in Mexico, seems beyond1 credibili ty, although the fact is declared to be thoroughly substantiated by the records of the parish. It appears hardly possible that the human organism can endure up to within seven years of two centuries of ex istence. Should there be, however, any real evidence for the genuineness of the case, It Is something' that ought to be wor thy of the closest scientific Investigation, Morelia is not a remote city, as the world is today. It is on a prominent line of rail way, and is frequented by tourists, so that it should not be difficult to arrive at the bottom facts. The conditions of the Mexican tablelands and of the elevated regions of Peru are such as to be exceptionally favorable to longevity, and many thoroughly authenti cated instances are said to be on record of persons living to an age of 1-10 years and beyond. Fortunes for Forty Heirs. The fortune of several millions which Marshall Durand left when he died in Bal timore some years ago, is likely to make two people of North Adams, Mass., inde pendently rich. They are Gilbert Savole, a coachman, and Mrs. Frank Eddy. There are about 4 ucirs, each of whom will re ceive about 200,000, , THE PROFESSIONAL 0LTJB, "Iloretllty" as Discussed in Dr. Thompson's Pa per. Am li lit mill .limit ni Theories ltt'Kiu-il Its I.ihih tinny Facts mill lllitstrit. lions or tienernl 1'iihllc Interest. The December nipctlnc of the Profes 8ion.it club, held at the Brooks House Monday evening, was marked by an un usually largo attendance of members and guests, llie paper, by Dr. AA . N. Thomp son of the Brattleboro Ketrcat, was a re markably strong and carefully compacted statement of the facts and theories, upon mis interesting subject ot investigation, which science has established or suggested. It was a paper which admits of no satis factory abstract, and our purpose is only to touch upon some of Its more salient points. Dr. Thompson said In beginning: "The general truth that organisms of a given type descend from organisms of the same type has been so well established as to bo axiomatic. The trite aphorism of Lin naeus, 'Like begets like,' Is written on the universal face of nature. From the simplest form of protoplasm, which repro duces Itself by division, to the highest dif ferentiation In the human organism, there is no exception to this rule. A creature that did not resemble Its parents would bo a monstrosity. The matter of transmission of hereditary tendency, physical and men tal, characteristic of the parents, Is a bio logical problem that has not as yet received a satisfactory solution." The theories which have been advanced from the earliest time to the present, es pecially those of Darwin, Prof. AA'elsmann, antl of the Neo-Lamarcklan school, were outlined. A fact especially to be noted is that while certain nervous tendencies or habits, or Injuries strongly affecting the nervous system, are transmitted, mutila tions of various organs are not. For Il lustration, the Chinese habit of compress ing the feet and the Indian habit of com pressing the head produce no effect upon the posterity of these races. AA'elsmann cut off the tails of mice through a thou sand generations without Influencing the growth of that appendage. The conclu sion is that acquired variations to be trans mitted must be in the line of utility. Among domestic animals useful varia tions are brought about by the artificial se lection of the breeder, which accomplishes in a few generations the same end that would be attained by natural selection only after almost countless generations. Lord Somervllle, speaking of the work of breed ers in this respect, says: "It would seem that they had chalked upon the wall a form perfect in itself, and then given it ex istence." In the same line history records that Frederick AA'llllam I., the father of Frederick the Great, who was noted for his love of colossal statures, would not al low his guards to marry women of stature inferior to their own, and the result was a generation of men and women of Impos ing size. It is to be noted, In passing, that any relaxation of vigilance on the part of the breeder is followed by a ten dency of the animal to return to its nor mal form. The tendency to variation Is not incom patible with the laws of heredity, but rather a confirmation of them, for the reason that every animal is the composite representative, not only of Its immediate progenitors, but of many lines of ancestors. Even In the fifth generation the number is o2, and if wo include but five more It reaches a round thousand. Only among the invertebrata and the sub-species of vertebrata, where the envi ronment is uniformly the same and instinct the only known form of mental activity, does like really beget like, and the species and genus remain constant. AA'hen we ap proach the higher forms of vertebrata, where crossing is carried on in all degrees of varying dissimilarity, the species alone is found to be constant, while its traits and characteristics present almost limitless va riation. Heredity is not, then, a simple law, but instead a miss of complex phe nomena, dependent in turn on certain laws of generation upon which the whole su perstructure of heredity is founded. The tendency of Inbreeding to Intensify individual characteristics is well known, but among breeders It is a recognized fact that If carried too far It leads to Inevitable deterioration. In the human race the same rule holds true. It cannot be main tained that the evil effects of marriages of persons near of kin is great if occurring only here and there, and It cannot be de nied that a somewhat larger per cent of diseases consequent upon degeneration ap pear in their families. The more dissimi lar the parents or the ancestry the less will be the evil effects. The offspring of colo nies of criminals steadily deteriorate, not only mentally and morally, but physically, until sterility results and the race or fami ly becomes extinct. Interesting examples were quoted of the results produced by crosses of different breeds of animals and different races of men. Darwin experimented by crossing pure breeds of fowl, in which there was not a trace of red, which was the original coloring, with the result that In several of the mongrels red appeared. Children of the union of a white woman with a Hot tentot have always the good nature and the gentle disposition of the father, but the children of white men and Hottentot women have in them all the germs of un ruly passion and vice. AVhen the negro is crossed with the Hottentot the product is a mild, industrious person. An instance of reversion to the primitive type is recorded by Livingstone, who says that the children of Portugese and negroes are so notorious ly bad that an inhabitant once said to him, "God made the white man and God made the black man, but the devil made the half-caste." The various phenomena of heredity are conveniently grouped under the three heads of direct heredity, reverslonal heredity, and indirect heredity. Under the second classification many illustrations were noted. Plutarch relates the case of a Greek wom an who gave birth to a negro child. AA'hen brought to trial It transpired that she was descended in the fourtli degree from a ne gro. Darwin quotes the remarkable case of a pointer which gave birth to seven puppies, four of which were marked with blue and white, a color so unusual among pointers that the mother was thought to have played false with one of the grey hounds, and the whole litter was killed ex cept one, which was kept as a curiosity. Two years afterward it was proved that the young dog was the perfect image of a celebrated pointer named Sappho, and was In fact his great-great grandson. To complete the classification Hlbotadds that of the heredity of influence, as when the offspring of a second or subsequent un ion shows the characteristics peculiar to the father of the first. For illustration, an English mare, which in 1815 was cov ered by a quagga, gave birth to a mule marked with spots. In 1817, 1818 and 1823 she was covered successively by three Arab stallions, and produced three brown colts with bands like the quagga. It is notably the same among dogs, and human history is not without Illustration In this respect. The tendency to reproduce the same la tent attribute or defect in succeeding gen erations is well authenticated, as when blindness or deafness appears in succeed ing representatives at a given age. After Insanity the most common morbid tenden cy subject to the laws of heredity, Is crime. Aiisioiie recognized tins 2;juu years ago, Speaking upon the heritage of moral de pravity he tells of the case of a man who denied his responsibility for beating his lamer, "becauso my tamer beat his father, and he again beat his, and he also (point ing to his child) will beat mo when he be comes a man, lor it runs in our family.' The case of the New York family of crim inals, known as the Jukes, often quoted In literature upon crime, was cited. The his tory of the family begins in 1700 and In cludes 70!) persons, of whom more than 100 were the descendants of "Margaret, the mother of criminals." One hundred and eighty were paupers and received, al together 800 years of aid, while aside from petty crimes and thieving 1-10 were con victed of crime and received sentences ag gregating 140 years. Francis Gallon has shown, in a careful review of the lives of the kindred of about -400 Illustrious men of all periods of histo ry, that the qualities which characterized them were, under the limitations already mentioned, hereditary, and he states the conclusion that, "as It Is easy by a process of careful selection to obtain a breed of dogs or horses gifted with a peculiar pow er, so it would bo quite practicable to pro duce a highly gifted race of men by judi cious marriagedurlng several generations." His statistics show that ability does not often rise abruptly, but rather by a gradu al and regular curve In the generations that preceded Its culmination. The essayist said In conclusion: "The enquiry might be continued through every attribute of any species, race or individual with the same result. The offspring al ways combine in some degree the qualities of both Hues of ancestry. Capabilities and aptitudes must descend from the pa rents. Crime and disease come In the same way. Heredity Itself develops noth ing, but it holds and faithfully transmits from generation to generation, patent and latent characteristics. The tendencies of the organism we Inherit may be in the main, good or bad, they could scarcely be exclusively either, and they may bo modi fied by education and other forces of envi ronment." The paper bore the unmistakable mark of exhaustive reading in Dr. Thompson's specialty, and of able and faithful work In summarizing and preparing the conclusions reached for the benefit af the club. The discussion which followed It was led by Principal Home and Dr. Uonland, anil de veloped an unusual degree of spirit and interest. Mr. Day read a letter, received by him from Hon. Donuan B. Eaton, in which Mr. Eaton says that he lias suffered, since Dec. 1, a severe attack of nervous prottra tion, and though now improving, it is doubtful If he deems it wise to try to fulfil his promise to prepare a paper for the club during the present season. From Judge Shea a letter was read stat ing that he will piobably prefer to give his paper on Fort Sumter in April or May. At the February meeting of the club Lawyer Clarke C. Fills will read the paper on "The American Congress." Gov. Fuller, as president of the club, appointed Judge Wheeler and Judge J. M. Tyler to open the discussion, with Hon. J. L. Mar tin and C. II . Davenport as alternates. BISHOP-ELECT HALL'S DEGREE. In a brief item last week reference was made to the distinguished honor given Bishop-elect Hall by the University of Oxford in conferring on him the degree of doctor of divinity. The Latin speech de livered on the occasion was at once so fe licitous and so complimentary in its terms as to be worth reproducing. It was written by Dr. luce, reglus professor of the Ox ford divinity school, who was to have pre sented Father Hall for his degree, but on ac count of Dr. luce's Illness that .service fell to Archdeacon Palmer, who recited the speech, of which a translation is here given: Dr. luce's Speech. "J present to you the I!ev. Arthur Craw shaw AUIston Hall, M. A., of Christ church, in whom we have a remarkable In stance of how closely the bonds of con cord and affinity bind the Anglican church in the trans-Atlantic republic to our own church in Great Britain. For this our alumnus, after he had given his youthful years to the study of the liberal arts, be took himself to theology and was admitted to holy orders. He did not, however, un dertake the office of a pariah priest, exer cising the pastoral care of souls within a limited district; but having been admitted to the Society of St. John the Evangelist at Cowley near to Oxford, he was train ed for preaching the word of God wherev er opportunity offered. Students of an tiquity will not fail to remember that an ciently our university possessed the right of granting licenses to preach throughout the whole of England. "After two years this reverend man, be ing sent to America by the command of his superiors, distinguished himself as a most excellent preacher In the United States and In the adjacent country of Can ada; for all men with grateful mind were wont to acknowledge his sacred eloquence, his integrity of life, and his most fervent love for religion. Nor did his preaching lack critical and keen-witted judges; since during 18 years he was residing in the city of Boston, the very citadel anil home of literature and of the Muses In the AA'est ern world. Having been recalled to Eng land by the command of his superiors, he has, during the two years which have just elapsed, persevered in the same manner of life. At this present time the Americans, mindful of former benefits, have called him back to greater things. Though an English citizen by birth and an English presbyter by ordination, the clergy and lai ty of the diocese of Vermont havo elected him by their suffrages to be their bishop. Forgetful of his oiyn people and of his own home, but not without the hope that he is obedient to a divine call, this our alumnus goes forth. 3 "And now, that thero be not wanting tokens of the friendship duo to himself and to the great Republic of tho AA'est, anil to the American church, let us who are here assembled send him away adorned with honors from this, his own university. The Church of England to tho church of America, the mother to the daughter, com mends her son. The ancient University of Oxford hands over her pupil to the more modern universities of the New AVorld, In the full assurance that he will receive from them a most kindly welcome.
