ness session resulted in tne election ot john w Vogel's Big Minstrels, which
the dejot lately to the effect that the
Boston & Maine railroad is negotiat
ing for the purchase of the Central
Vermont system. How much truth
there is in the story cannot be found
out but everyone who is in any way con
nected with the Central Vermont

true. In spite of the many promises
which were made when the Grand

In spite of the bad weather of the past
few weeks the work is going on rapidly
the frame of one building being par
tially up. Holden & Martin, contract
ors, find it exceedingly difficult to pro
cure foundation stone and this has de

which retards progress is the inability
to get lumber shipped from points on
the narrow gauge.
Of all the names in the minstrel i
world, there are none which better con
jure up pleasant memories of youthful
admiration than those of Duprez and
Benedict. Who does not remember the i
magic that was once in tlje name of '
Lew Benedict; who is there of middle j

lurgest theatre of former days? What

E. M. Douglas of Worcester, Mass.,
who spent a part of last week with his
family in town, is one of several Wor
cester men who are interested in a
mining company which has proved suc
cessful. It was formed last spring un
der the name of the Goldeo Link Min
iog& Trading Co., ita principal object
being to carry on fur trading in north
ern Alaska. The company sent a rep
resentative to Nome last May and he
recently returned after spending the
summer in that mining region. The
success of the venture' has been unus
ual for aside from the quantity of val
uable skins secured the company
bought several extremely valuable
claims in the Nome region at a low fig
ure and its representative brought
bome the most valuable quantity of
gold brought out of the miniDg region
this season. The company has just
paid a good dividend and its holdings
have increased 500 per cent in value.
Mr. Douglas brought to Brattleboro
about $500 worth of Duggets and dust.

er than an English walnut and con

Coal continues to be at a premium
in Brattleboro. Small lots of different
sizes have been received by both deal
ers the past week but. the outlook is
not verv encouraging. The holiday
celebrations at the different mines
have cut down the output at the mines
about one-half and add to the uncer
slier, clerk. The object of the club as
stated in the by laws is good fellow
ship and the advancement of technical
knowledge in the art preservative. It
meets every other week at the home of
its members and is open to all em
ployes and employers of the printing
and allied trades. It is patterned af
ter the various printers' technical
clubs in various parts of the country

The universal commendation of the
lecture in the Auditorium Wednesday
evening by Senator J. P. Dolliver of
Iowa is proof that the committee in
charge of the Y. M. C. A. course of en
tertainments made no mistake in en
gaging Senator Dolliver as one of the
attractions. The speaker took for his
subject. "A Poor Man's Government
and a Poor Boy's Country," and it is
perhaps unnecessary to state that that
country is the United States. Senator
Dolliver has traveled much and has
had much experience in investigating
the various problems and conditions
that exist, and it is reasonable to be
lieve that he is right when be says that
the country never offered more or bet
ter opportunities to a poor boy than it
offers to-day. It is necessary that the
boy cultivate the elements of good cit
izenship, apply himself to his task,
master its details, and the rest is com
paratively easy. As illustrating the
truth of his remarks he reviewed the
careers of William McKinley and oth-'
era whose success was the reward of
hard work along the lines indicated.
This is but one of the many good points
in the senator's address. It was really
one of the very best entertainments of
the season, and the applause of the au
