Tho con , ii,..u nf hla buslness was such that i HiibortKon would not havo sold mill for $25,ono. It was Instired for through H. K. Taylor & Son's iu y In Urattleboro. it w.is thouplu nt flrst that spontunc - i omliiistlon probably was tho causo n: tlK- llre, but thcre are Indlcntio'us that ,i w.is set by a trntnp. Aliout 1 o'clock tijnliv morning Josoph Humrlll, nlght v un in In tlu Stowoll factory, i . .imh he henrd a nolse In tho upper part ,' thc fartory, but ho was unable to de ..inilne tho source of tho nolse. Later, wnli j:oing hls rounds on tho thlrd lloor, i, i s-melled tobacco smoke. and on mnk- ii. g an inrestlsatlon found a tramp on t'n lloor smoking. Ile nsked thc tramp i w hc got in and tho latter replled that 1 came In through one of the ground f "ir windows. Mr. Ilumrill ordcrod tho trttnp out of tho bulldlng, but he re fused to bo until he was threatened with nrrest. Then lio startcd In tho dlrectlon nf the Itobertson mlll. Tho mlll had been h it down to nllow somo repalrs to he made, there was no flrc under tho boll ers and all tho rmployes wero away. About & o'cloek In tho morning Danlel C'rnwloy, mnrhlnc tender, wbo hns been employed by Mr. Hobertsqn 23 years, went to the mlll and ln a few mlnutes heard n crnokllng sound ovcrhead In the west end, farthest from the en trance. On looklng up ho saw flre on the second lloor and Immedlately gave an alarm. Then he attempted to got a stream of wator on to the llre, but the locntlon was such that he was unable to do so. The flre Uepartment lald 1100 feet of hose from the water pump ln the Cole mlll, there belng no steam with whlch to operato tho steam pump, and by hnrd work they wero nble to savo the of fice bulldlng, nlthough lt took flre sev oral times and on ono sldo was badly charred. If the olllce bulldlng had burn ed, the store iiouse, In whlch was ovcr $jii00 worth of paper, also probably would have burned. The flre throws about 13 persons out of cmployment. The mlll was devoted prlnclpally to tho manufncture of colored paper. Its dally capaclty was about 4000 pounds of battcn paper, used for wrapplng up cotton, and from 2300 to GuOO pounds of tbln tlssuo pa per. It was enulpped with a DG-lnch machlne, two englnes and other ma chlnery. The machlne had slx drlers, two of whlch were put ln a year ago. Included ln the property burned was about $2000 worth of paper ready for shlp ment, $1000 worth of colnrlng matter, an ncetylene gas plant put In last wlnter at a cost of $300, and $2X worth of nearly new beltlng. The mlll was put ln flrst class condltlon a year ago at an ex pense of ff.000. The prospect for busl ness was unusually good. The mlll stood ln what 1s called "the pit," belng down ln the valley east of the vlllnge, near a huge cllft whlch rlses to a helght of nearly 100 feet. About 100 years ago a saw mill stood there. Af terwards Capt. Robcrtson's father made paper thcre by hand. In 1S2S tho old mlll was washed away by a freshet. A new paper mlll was erected whlch was owned by Kphrlam Holland of AValpole, N. II. Whcn Capt. Itobertson was 2i) years old ho leased the mlll and made straw paper. Afterwards he bought the mlll and ran lt unlll lt Was worn out, when ho tore It down and built a new one. whlch was tho ono burned. Thero has been somo talk of formlng a stock company to put up a new mlll and continue the buslness, but nothing deflnlte has been declded upon. The slte and water privllege certalnly is too val uablo to lay idle. The dam, penstock, bleach, and probably tho bollers, are not damaged, and these with the pxcellent busineys prospect otight to be utlllzed by all means. Deepest sympathy 1s felt with Capt. Itobertson in his great loss. The F. L. Florce estato will bo sold by auctlon May 23 by W. S. Adams, trus teo. Tne Uaptlst society ls rehearslng for a May day festlval to bo glven ln the town hall.

Hoplng Always for the Letter Whlch Never Comes. Hb Is a poor olil fellow, very poor, very feelile, with. shnklng bend and trembllng hands; hls back ls Ijent and hls skelelun frnme Is percheil upon two long tliln legs llke those of n stoik. A few locks of white halr strnggle from under the old brown felt hut, whlch has been scorched by the sun of mnny u summer and wnslied by the rnjn of many a win 'ler. Ile uuist fa iiuite sn, but iione of us know hls real age. When 1 wns a little boy, he seemed alreudy an aged man. Hls forehead ls bnld and hls little oyes bllnk under thelr red llds; hls face ls very pale, but hls look Is gentle, his smlle sad. Often as he goes along, he talks to hlmsolf, and hls long sharp uhln wngs ln n oomlenl mnnner between tho polnts of hls hlgh collnr. llo Is very nent, nl ways cleanshaved. uud hls elothes, though very coarse, worn theadbaro and shlny nt knees and ellwus, and patched iu many a place, are withottt staln, or trace of anciant dust. He is tho postman of a little vlllngo high up in the Vosges, a vlllage of so little Importanee that the government bas not deigned to supply lt with a unl formed olllclnl postman, and so old Frnnz goes down evety day to the near est town to fetch the mail. The way Is long slx miles at leasl to go, as mnny to leturn. wlthout taklng Into account the many (btu.irs he must uuike to dellver letti ts at outl.lng dialets and farms scat tered along the shb-s nf the valley. Hnp plly hls lond is a very light one; one does not read much iu thuse parts, and the postbag whUii the old man brtugs back In the evening, Is generally nearly tlat, For parcels iranz nses a riueer son of cur whlch he hns eontrlved out of u plank fastened on a couple of wheels, and to whlch he hns attached a long linndlo. Thls he pushes along with one hand, while ho supports himself on a henvy stnlf held ln the other. For 30 vears the old man has earned his bread in thls mnnner; summer and wltitrr he comes and. goes. puuctual as tho suu, passlng nt the same hours be foro the same houses; be Is a pernmbu latlng clock. But I can seo thut lately ho Is aglng rapldly; every ilay ho seems a little older; hls step heavlcr and slow or; his stlck Is wearing out at tho polnt, and yesterday, for the llrst tlme, I snw hlm stop nnd rest at the top of a sloep hlll. Thu road hu follows ls a long, windlng one, between two barrlers of pasturo lamls and the wauderlng of a mountain stream. He illtrlhutes hls letters, reoelvlng ln excbnnge. now a smllo, or a happy "Thank you, Franz." soint'tlmes a scowi or ftltempered word. as If he were responslble for the news be brlngs. be it good or lmd. l"p here. fur from the movement of cltlw, a letter Is almosl an event; ona opens It on the spot, on tho door-step, ln the street. as If one felt the ileslre to have a witnes of one's Joy or sorrow. Moreover, Fninz sees every day the drlver of the mnll catt and the pot-ol!lce clerk: he knows what Is golng on in the world; he can glve good ndvice. Besldes all this, he will take b.ick the answer. when he de scends tomorrow morning. Can it be mirprtslng that be knows everybody's buslness, the love nffalrs of the mlller's pretty daughter, the dlttlcultles of the fnrtner to whom the slght of stamped liaper Is becomlng too fnmlllar. But old Franz ls dlcreet, tnciturn by nnture. he never nllows hlm-elf to be drawn Into gossip, and he is a match for the most Inuuisltlve womnn in the vlllnge. (Jt only one thlng will the old mnn spenk freely; of the son who hns gone to AmerUn. nnd who promlsed Vb writo as soon as he reached the other slde of tho ocean. But the news dld not come. and the mail, whlch hns brotmht so many letters for others, hns brought none for hiiii. Every morning when he goes to the town. ho hopes to flnd tho letter waitlng for hlm. hope lends streilgth to hls old llmbs; he hnstens his step. hls eyes ghsten. nnd as lie nenrs the post otlice. his heart beglns to beat more qulckly. Sometlmes ho stops, over come by emotion; "If It should not le there:-' But tt cnnnot fail; so many long months havo passed, It has had pli-nt of tlme to nrrlve. and reassured. almost Joyfully he enters the little low room. where tho clerk. Milml a wooden rall. Is mnklng out hls nccounts to the nci oinpanlment of the tlcklng of a tele graph. "Good morning. Fntber Franz! Here is vour packet. look lt over." The old mnn. pnler than uunl, puts his stick in a corner. With trembling hands he takes from hl lsicket n elum sv pnir of steel spectneles and tlxes them with dllllculty upon hls thln nose. The sorting beglns, but hls llngers tremblo vlolently only the letters, nn otllclal doi-uinent for tho school mnster and a fewnewspnpers One after another he reads the uddresses, slowiy. to be qulto sure, and becauso hls eyes nre not very good. now. There ls the last lt is not for hlm. lmposslble! He cnnnot hnvo read lt rlght. hls glasses are dlm. nnd tlie room whlch faces the north. Is rath er dnrk. Taklng out a large c'neck handkerchlef, ho carofully pollshes hls glases and then rocommcnces hls Inspec tlon. turnlng over each letter thls tlme, as the poor mnn turns over the last coln in hls pocket, bofore partlng with It. Aguin nothing! Perhaps It has sllpped into n newspaper, thnt hnppons some tlmes; so he turns over the newspapers carefully. liftlng tho hand. peering be tween the folds. It ls not thore, lt Is certaln. Mournfully, with n henvy slgh, he puts hls spectneles Into his pocket, the letters Into tho bag, takes up his stlck. "Well. Frnnz. hnve you got lt thls tlme?" nsks the clerk. "Alas! no. but I dld expeot It. Jie must hnve nilssed the mail. It will como to morrow." Why the Leaves Trembled. Savages are supposed to have keener oenses, especlnll a keener senso of sight. thnn eivilized rnces. The nuthor ot "Idle Days in Patagonla," doos not accept thls iheory: Ile belloves that sav ages hnvo no keener sensos, but that they pay more attentlon to what comes with in the range of thelr perceptlon. As nn Instnnce ot qulck response to lmpresslon, he tells the kollowing story: On .Mareh 21. a company of hunters wero cumplng beslde a grove of wlllows In Patagonla. About 3 o'clock thnt ove nlng, whlle they wero.seuted around tho flre, roastins thelr ostricli meat. Sosa huddenly sprnng to hls feet und held hls open hand hlgh above hls head for somo momi'iits, "Thero Is not a breath of wind blow lng,"he exclalmed, "yet tho leaves of tho trees nre trembling! What can thls por- tend?" Tho others stnred at the trees, but could see no motlon, and they bogan to laugh at hlm. Presently he sat down ogaln, ren.arking that the trembling had ceased. but durlng the rest of the ovo nlng he was very much dlsturbed iu hls mlnd. He remarked repeatedly that such n thlng had never happened In his cx perlenco before; for, ho said, he could feel a breath of wind beforo the leaves felt It, and thoro hnd been no wind. He feared that It was a warnlng of somo dlsnster nbout to ovcrtako thel.' party. The dlsaster was not for them. On thnt evoning occurred tho earthquako whlch destroyed the dlstant clty of Men dosa and crushed twelvo thousand poopl to death beneath tho rulns. That tho subterranean wavo oxtended east of tho Plata and southwnrd Into Patagonla wns afterward known; for ln the cltlcs of Rosarlo and Buenos Ayres clocks stop ped and n sllght shock was also exper lenced In tho Carmen on the RIo Nogro.

How important thls power. und how great the need of lncreaslng It Is, may bo percelved If It bo conslJered that the control over thought Is perhaps the greatost factor over whlch the indlvldunl has domlnation, not nlono ln maklng hlmseir huppv. hut In maklng hlm a con trlbutor to the hnppiness of others. lt Is withln tho range of ordlnary obser vation to see two men who nre' equHlly blessed in health. strength. intelllgeuce nnd tlie fundnmentuls of character. and ei ono is wretched nnd a burdon to hls coinpiinlons. whlle the other Is a bles Ing to his famlly and frlends and at the same tlme gets real satlsfactlon from llfe aml Its dutles. And yet tne only dlfference lietween the two Is tho power one hns over hls thoughts. whlch is tho result of resolutlon ndhered to steadlly and constantly until a hnblt ls formed that changes hls character and hls lnflu ence tqion others for the better. Thls power to dlsmlss tho unnleasant. the eil as;ect of llfe, the communing with the hlgh. helpful thoughts; the establlshment of mentiil self-restraln nnd self-guld.inco in medltatlon. Is a very dlflerent thlng from the hubit of constant self-analysis and introspectlon whlch Is the mark of morbld. self-consclous. sub- Jtctlve personnhty. lt should be the oim to avold too much self-examlnatlon and to strlvo to look at the brlght and hope ful slde of nll thlngs. So vltnl ls this dlsposltlon to shun the dark aspects of existonce, nnd of tne ordlnary concerns ot lifo tnat a moral phllosopher has said wisely that the happlness of man depends less on "the nmount of plensurable or painful thlngs thnt are encountered thnn upon the turn of thought whlch dwells upon one or the other". Good naturo depends upon the polnt of view of tho Indhidual. The amlable man sees the merlts und not the defects of hls companlons nnd frlends; the dls contented see only the hardshlp of thelr lot; the bad tompered man dwells on the unavoldable. the Irritatlng thlngs, the dls agreable features of llfe. whlle the good nniured man overlooks or dismlsses from hls mlnd and dwells on the brlght, pleas nnt nnd attraellvc slde of ever thlng.

An Example for Office Boys. "Be good to the olllce boy," ls a moral tauglu by the career of Wllllam Aldon Smlth. He had saved a little money nnd wanted a place to study Blackstone. Thls wns in 1S79. llo thought flrst of Chlcngo, nnd even went so far as to go to that clty and npply for a place as oftiee boy in the firm ot Walker & Dex ter. But lt was ln the summer, and the heads were all out of town, and he end ed by returnlng to Grand Raplds. Jlere he selccted tho tlrm of Burch & Mont gomery. He had suggested thls beforo, but they had not needed hlm;, he was this tlmo confronted by a closed olllce and a card tacked on the door saylng thoy were out ot town and would not be back for several weeks. But thls dld not daunt Smlfh, who Ilnally looked up Mr. Plerce, tho owner of tho bulldlng nnd a man of somo promlnenco In the town. He told Plerco what ho wanted. and tlnally persuaded hlm to glvo hlm a pass-key to the olllce. And so It hap pened, when Judge Burch returned he found hls otllccs swept and garnlshed, antl n brlsk young clerk dlllgently read ing at ono of tho desks. To tho ln qulrlea of tho Judgo the young fellow re plled that ho had come to stay; thnt he was tho olllce boy at noth ing a week. All ho wanted, he said, was a chance to make hlmsolf useful, nnd Incldentally to read a little law, Thlngs looked so clenn and tho young man was so respectfully determlned to reinaln that Judge Burch good naturedly ncqulesced. In seven years Smlth was a member of tho flrm. In seven years more he was part owner ln tho prlnclpal news paper ln tho place, and proprietor of a branch rallroad. In another seven years ho had added two moro rallroads to hls assets, and was In Congress. Meantlme tho whecl of fortune has been turnlng; Montgomery ls on tho bench of tho Mlchlgan Supremo Court; Judgo Burch, through tho Intluence of,hls for mer olllce boy, had been appolnted as slstant to tho United States nttorney general, and resldes ln Washington; whllo Plerce, who had met with financlal reverses, was rewarded for the pass-key whlch ho had glven Smlth by an appolnt ment as asslstant sergcant-at-arms of tho United States Iiouse of Representa tlvea. A man's wlfe should always ba the same, especlally to her husband, but if she ls weak and nervous, and uses Car tcr's lron Pllls, she cannot be, for they make her "feel llke a dlfferent person," so they all say, and thelr husbands say so too!
