Y. M. C. A. NOTES.
The Y. M. C. A. 4 o'clock meeting
next Sunday wlll be comblned wlth
the union mectlng to bo addressed by
Hev. E. E. Davldson, the evangellst.
A siiecial meeting for young mon
will be held in the Congrogational
chapel this. Friday. evenlng at It
o'clock, following the regular meeting
to bo held there.
Eight new meinbers woro votod ln
at the monthly meeting of the assoei
ation Monday evening. . A voto of
thanks was oxtended to the children
of Peter Cooper, for furnlshing tho as
sociation wlth a biography of Pctor
Cooper. the founder of Cooper Union
in New York clty. and also to Mrs.
Delia Wilder for tho gift of $500 re
corded clsewhere.
A gift of $300 has been made to the
association to apply on the fund for a
bulldlng. The donor is Mrs. Delia
Wilder, who is greatly Intorested in
the work of the association and in the
plans for eventually establishing a por
manent home for the association. She
specifles that the $500 shall not be
avallable unless the buildlng is orert
ed withln IS years. Tho buildlng
fund was flrst started in 1SS7. when
S. W. Edgett made a contrlbution of
$5. Miss Susan Salisbury gave tho
association $100 for this purpose, and
the buildlng fund amounted to $107 be
fore Mrs. Wlldor's gift wns announced.
Mrs. Wilder's generosity calls the at
tontion of Brattleboro poople to the
dosirability of giving to the fund now,
to advance still farther the interest in
this desirable iiroject.
The Remodeled Postoffice.
Tho town of Brattlel)oro, through its
seloetmon, who rocently leasod to the
government the quarters occuplod by
tho local postoffice for an addltlonal
torm of flve years, practically has
fulfillod the torms of its contraet. re
tiuiring certaln nlterations and ad
ditions. and Brattleboro now has ono
of the bost appointed and enuipped
postofnces of its size in the country.
Viewed from tho outside, the. most
notable chango bas been mnde by
moving the stamp. money order and
registry departnu'nt sovoral feot
farther out toward tho eentre of the
corrldor and roplacing the old busl
ness window wlth an Iron grllle such
as is Boon in banklng houses nnd many
other places whore large amounts of
money are handled. Another grille
six feet higli separates the cash de
partment from tlie mail department,
excluding from the cash department
all exeept thoso who handle funds.
Three sets of oak drawcrs havo been
provlded. one each for the assistant
postmaster and two clorks. so that
the cash transnctions of each may be
kopt entirely Independent of the
otliors. ln the uppor part of the for
mer hallway leading from the post
niaster's private ofllce to the maln
corridor has been fltted up n room for
the storage of documonts. In tho
mail department the cases and othor
paraphernalla have beon roarrangod
to better suit the convonienco of tho
pmployes. The walla tbroiiRljout
havo been tlnted a harmonious shade
of green and the eherry wood-work
has been reftnished And varntshed. A
"wing-room," to use the vernacular
of the depaitment has beon fltted up
ln th,- basement of the bulldlng, light
ert by olertrieity and furnlshed wlth
arm tbalrs and reading mattor, whero
the carriers may spond thoir tlmo. if
(lesired, while off duty during tlie day.

Andrew Jackson as a Soldier.
Of all the careers in our army there
is no parallel to thnt of Jackson. Ho
treated his mllitia with the utmost
harshness, but they worshipped hlm
and rendored such service for hlm as
no othor general ever got out of them.
Ile was the terror of his superlors in
Washington, his only idea of discipline
being the enforcement of his own wlll
against thoso above hlm ns well as
those under hlm; but ho had such a
hold on tho people by reason of his
strmgth of sharacter, his integrity,
and his great deeds, that no one dared
to call hlm to account for any of his
acts. His flghting was always against
Indians, exeept ln his one brief cam
paign at Now Orleans; the theatre of
thls campalgn was a six-milo plot,
where there was no opportunlty for
sinitegy or grand tactics, or the exor
clse of any of tho qunllties of general
shlp oxcopt one; he selected and
fortlfiod a posltion about a thousand
yards long, ono flanlc on tho river and
tho othor on a swamp, and the onemy
dushed hlmself to pieces against it.
But his enemy was the best regular
troops in Europe, who had defeated
the plans of Napoleon in Spain. Jack
son crushed them, and this one fact
blots out all of his mistakes and leaves
hlm unperlshable fame as a great sol
dior. Scribner's Magazine.
