Of course there are quite a few who are waiting, myself among the rest, but 'twas ever thus, there always has to be a second table. Lest I stray from my subject which .for today will be: "How are things at home,' I'll get into line with this argument. Unless petty politics are cut out Vermont won't show her usual strength on the presidental end of the game. It is perfectly proper to go in lor town ana municipal rerorm, dui when you try such a game as trading votes with a weak opponent you have got to have the sagacity -of Russell Sage to avert disaster. When you trade votes between the sheriff and the states attorney you will elect two graft ers, whereas if you put up a fight for 1 both offices and lose one you can rely on the fellow chosen to tend strictly to business. You'll have a tour flush combination if you trade off the side judge's scalp for assistance toward electing a county clerk or judge of probate. Stay on the firing line and pass the ammunition to the enemy. How are things at home? Get out among the people and in doing this don't go at it as though you were capping a shell game. . He frank. Talking about virtue in politics, business or love, let me tell you that if you are frank and your fellow man can not discern double dealing between the lines in your conversation and actions you are scheduled as a winner. H y pocrites are the parents of thieves and liars. There are lots of 'em in Vermont, too. Watch them and when you are sure of your man get into him. Put him to the underbrush. It was this type that advocated prohibition. It was the same crowd that enacted a law making the penalty for murder in Vermont hanging and then 1 By the "Tw-Eyed;Man." The Weekly Gazette How we love the little paper e'er so modest and so meet As it comes its lengthy journey from the country every week; From the good old town behind us that we left so long ago. When the city fever becked us with its artificial glow. Oh, the news is never startling, and the pictures are bnt few, And it's crowded with stock matter, and the type is never new; But it brings an old time feeling as we tutn its pages o'er, Keading here and there of neighbors, as we've often read before "John Smith has gone to Meadowbroolc To see his brother Bill." "Ike Marvin's hired the Peckham place On top of Miller's hill." ''Sam Barton's fixed his cider press." "Ben Holmes has bought a cow." 4,Hamp Culver'a going to paint his barn,' "It's time to hay it now." "Doc Sanders' boy has cut his foot," "The wells are getting dry." "The price of eggs has dropped a cent But butter still is high." ""A drummer came to town today." "Bill Brown has sold his mare." 'Ice cream at Baker's corner store, It's cooling to be there." Yes, we love the little paper, it's so brimming full ol news, And we tear the pasted wrapper, we're so eager to peruse; And we settle by the fireside while the world goes rushing on, And devote an hour to reading, which is all too quickly gone. And we look across the distanee from the city to the town, And we sigh and brush a tear drop as we lay the paper down; For we're carried Iwck to school days, and to good old days ot yore, When we read these simple items, as we've often read before: 'The band wi'l meet on Friday night.' 'Dick Wade is out again." 'Lem Wallace's sold his sorrel horse And team to Enoch Lane." ""Will Miner's passing round cigars A bouncing boy, they say." ''Dot Clarke his got the chicken-pox."

Joh Cone in Saturday's Utica Globe. On April 2r, just passed, ex-Gov Carrol S. Page of Hyde Park commenced his 50th year as a purchaser of green calfskins. His has beeu a nota tie career in business a most successful business life. Few men could have succeeded where the governor has. Just think for a moment that the largest hide business of the country lias been built in little Hyde Park, remote from the large markets and on the line of a single railroad. The big business successes in Vermont have been raised Observed near I1UW U1C LUIUJS ill UUlllCr iUOJt Out for the hypocrite whtn you settle on a lad to go to the next general assembly civilized sections of the world, to pro ...... . - ' X. vide for the investigations; fires when of apparently incendiary origin, to pru-vide for a rigid investigation when men and women die under suspicious circumstances, when you find such a party don't weigh him in comparison with tnei duck that refuses to make any promises' and says he'll do what he thinks best after he gets there. The latter type is a hypocrite. Such a man won't do anything Put his constituents." Beware of this fringe of humanity. They are the left overs of the "old Vermont." DeBoer for governor means a man of the new thspensftion. Give him a general assembly of men with ideas. He is a man with an .idea and above ail things abhors grandstand players. He is not one himself. He does not hanker after the job of being governor of Vermont and he is perfectly frank in saying so. His business demands the bulk of his attention but the new idea that prevails will prevail upon this brilliant, polished, reserved man of business and for the first time in the history of Vermont there will be a shut-out for the cheap ones. The appointments that DeBoer would make, it elected governor, will be the kind of men that do things, men that Mr DeBoer has the assurance are capable of performing the duties assigned them. A political pull won't amount to a tinker's dam with the DeBoer administration. If you have business capacity and ';he other lad a pull you will get the appointment, provided of course DeBoer should be the next governor of Vermont. Now, don't get frothy round the gills. DeBoer has not got to make pledges. The party has got to make the promises to Mr D. It doesn't relish doing so, but to save the scalp of men of smaller cUibre who have future aspirations the party will go down on its knees and DeBoer, the man with ideas, will be elected. Stick to your flannels a day or so longer. Two Dollar Bill. I where is found the material, like mar ble, granite and wood manufacturing. But Hyde Park or the territory round about has never been noted as a beef raising section and consequently the hide business is no more fitted for that territory than it would be on the islands of the lake. Then, to the personality of the man, is due the building of one of Vermont's greatest industries. Thousands of capital are invested, millions of business done annually. And I wish here to remark, that a man who can build an enterprise like the hide business of Hyde Park is worthy of most anything in this world's goods, and surely worthy of the respect and admiration of his fellow men. I am reminded of a little story I heard some time ago concerning the governor. He was about 15 years old and had had considerable experience in the store of his lather, who sent out peddlers carts all over this section in the late fifties and early sixties. The elder Page had made his purchases mostly by correspondence with the wholesalers of the cities, but he conceived the idea of going to market and he sent the son. The boy wasn't reluctant to go. In fact he evidenced considerable interest in getting to the big marts of trade and Boston was his first place to visit. At that time Horace Partridge was doing business on Hanover st and the establishment was extensive even at that time. Young Page landed in Boston and visited the Partridge store with memoranda of what was wanted at Hyde Park and for the peddling trade. He was introduced to Mr Partridge, a business man from his toes up. In those days the ladies wore a hoop in their skirts made.ot rattan "and young Page had on his memoranda this article. "What is the price," asked the future governor. Mr Partridge, evidently amused and somewhat in doubt about the boy's knowledge of things, named a price cot more than half the actual value. "How many have you," was young Page's inquiry. "We'll look at 'em," was Mr Part-ridge's response. They did look at them and there was a good sized room pretty well filled, enough to put a row of hoops into every lady's skirt from Boston to the Canadian line. "I'll take them all," said the gov- LIGHTNING has struck the grand . old state again. Vermonters don't have to die before they go "to the good place they are drafted to Vashington as fast as the dead 'uns step down. Judge Wendell P. Stafford of the Vermont supreme court is the latest selection by the powers that be and he will grace the bench in the supreme court of the District of Columbia and raise its standard, too. The glory of receiving and the glory of giving are about equal. Judge Stafford's personality will lend Lomething to Washington as well as Washington will bestow something on him. Hon George M. Powers, now reporter of the Vermont supreme court, is mentioned more strongly than any other man as Judge Stafford's successor and up to date this office has no objection to this appointment and sees no reason why it should not congratulate ludge Powers on being selected. DUSY IZZY" of the Chittenden ' county jail has another act in the Vergennes Wrecked Bank drama up his sleeve. It is no less than the starting out on the road of a company which will present to the public a play written on the events of the bank episode. The first act of the play is laid in the interior of the defunct bank; the second in the interior of the Chittenden county jail and the third in D. H. Lewis' apartments at Vergennes. If Ketchum never gets a pardon on account of injured innocence he may on the grounds of being so busy m jail that the sheriff will have nervous prostration keeping tabs on his activities. pUTTER prices are going to bs low this summer. Farmers say that the extremely cold winter is responsible. It has cost the people in the cities so much for fuel and extra clothing that many other necessities were dispensed with and therefore much farm products are yet in cold storage unsold. TN some respects Hon Percival -W. Clement resembles Hon William Jennings Bryan. He hires his own hall, advertises his own appearance and pays the bills. Hon P. W. has slated himself to appear at the opera house in Burlington next Thursday night. TSN'T it strange and yet pleasant to feel that there is a man wanted for governor who doesn't care a d for the office ernor, and this fairly took the breath out of Mr Partridge. "Take them all," he exclaimed, 11 why, boy, you can never sell them." "That won't bother you, Mr Partridge." said the boy, and the rattans, nearly a car load, were shipped to Hyde Park. . I failed to find a single rattan the day I went over the governor's hide plant, which was only a short while ago. Doesn't Dye His Hair Lynn Hays of Syndicate Junction, after a couple of weeks spent in disembowelling a gasoline engine, started the automatic sparker, pressed the proper buttons on the foreman and came to state convention. Here's one of the things he saw: "Hindley was a delegate from Ludlow a Clement man. He wore a three sheet poster on the lapel of his coat declaring the fact." Which ieminds me of the following conundrum : What is the difference between the man who dyes the wool on the little sheep and Hays? Give it up? Well, the fiist is a lamb dyer and Hays is a good newspaper man. H. L. Hindley in Brattleboro Reformer. A Little Late, but it's Getting Here A few weeks before the usual spring influx of eggs for Easter the Burlington Clipper adroitly began a series of articles on how to make hens lay, reckoning, of course, on the certain credit of such arrangement of apparent cause and effect. Now it's offering a free trip to any licensed towa named if some one can locate Gentle Spring. "The best laid plans of mice and men," etc. Brattleboro Reformer. Suspected Murderers Held Hollis Heath and Willard Ainsworth of Worcester have been held for the September grand jury without bail, charged with the murder of Charles McLaneon March 1 12. It will be remembered that the body of McLane was found beneath a bed in the house where he lived alone on the morning of March 14. There were wounds on the head, McLane had accused Heath and Ainsworth of stealing his farming tools and it is alleged, a quarrel followed. Test Case Against Mail Carrier 1 P. H. Ryan of Fairfax has brought suit against William Barkyoumb, mail carrier on rural free delivery route No 2, tor damage for cutting wire fences and passing across his premises when the highway was rendered impassable by drifts last winter. Other carriers are awaiting the outcome. THE friends of Henry Ballard have given his candidacy for the lieutenant governorship a push that gathers momentum asfcit rolls along. Such spontaneity means success under ordinary circumstances, but it should be taken into consideration that this is not the average or the ordinary year. Henry's boom may receive a bump, and that's just why his advocates should not get sleepy. It may not be recalled by many that when Gov Page was asked to appoint a man to succeed Senator Edmunds Mr Ballard was one of the men considered for the office and that the governor received more letter endorsements of Mr Ballard than did the other men under consideration. It wouldn't be strange, after what has happened, if the governor has had moments when he wished he had named Mr Ballard for United States senator! NORWICH UNIVERSITY and its early history occupies considerable space in our papers this week. The remarkable number of graduates who have figured in the history of this country's building and military annals awakens a feeling of amazement that so much has come from such small beginnings. The reading of this article ought to stir the strings of generosity to a large extent towards the institution. The cuts illustrating the story were kindly loaned by W. A. Ellis, librarian of the university, and the story itself was first produced in that bright little piece of Vermont enterprise, F. E. Sheldon's "Expansion." TThe unternfied of the state will in convention assemble in Burlington June 23, principally to nominate state officers and delegates to the national democratic convention. The choosing of a governor candidate is quite as perplexing to the democracy as it is to the republicans, but with the former the result in September is certain. 1 A S an a:tiic bouquet thrower no man ever visited Vermont the equal of Senator Foraker. , He "laid it on" to Proctor till the opera house stage fairly creaked with its burden. And through it all not a blush mounted the cheek of the venerable senator! STRIKES, and there are many of them, are the surest signs of spring. WESTFORD MAN DIES SUDDENLY While Eating Supper He Was Seized with Heart Failure Julius F. Goodrich, a successful farmer of Westford, died suddenly while eating supper at his home Sunday afternoon. Heart failure was the cause. Mr Goodrich had always lived in Westtord, being born there 79 years ago. His wife died three years ago. Seven children survive, as follows: Forest and Mrs H. H. SafTord of Fairfax, Fayette J. of Westford, Oliver H. of Berkshire, Lucius L. ot Westford, Mrs O. J. Remington of Essex and Levi A. of Morrisville. Mr Goodrich enlisted in the 6th Vermont regiment in the civil war and when discharged enlisted mthe 13th Vermont, being drummer in both regiments. He was a member of Bostwick post, No 69, of Underbill. The burial took place Wednesday in the family lot on Osgood hill, the funeral service being held from his home. All his children, except Mrs Remington, who is ill with the measles, were present. Twenty Home Games Each The schedule for the ball games to be. played by the teams in the Northern league. Burlington, Plattsburg, Rutland, Montpelier-Barre and St Albans, allows each team 20 games in their home towns. The first game comes off June 25 and will be between Burlington and Montpelier-Barre, and Plattsburg and St Albans, the first to be played at the Montpelier grounds and the second at St Albans. Burlington's first home game will be June 28, The committee arranging the playing schedule is very harmonious and a great season is predicted by all. For the Good Roads Cause The Good Roads movement has taken hold in Vermont. The association formed recently bore fruit in a convention at Mont pelier this week, May 5, when many road commissioners from many parts of the state met and formulated plans for definite and aggressive work. R. S. Currier of Barre is president of the association and H. M, Mcintosh of Burlington is secretary. Although the attendance was small a good deal of enthusiasm was noticeable. Hon Fuller Smith of St Albans advocated bonding the state for $4,500,000 and making trunk lines through the state, over 900 miles in all.

Burlington Man Honored Prof John Dewey of the Chicago university, a native" of Burlington, has been offered the chair of philosophy in Columbia university. New, York. Mr Dewey'i father carried on the grocery business in the store now occupied by C. A. Barber, for many years. The professor graduated from the U V M in 1879. Columbia will have two Burlington men in the instructors' chair if Mr Dewey accepts the offer, the other being Prof Wheeler, professor of Greek. AN EVENTFUL DAY Golden Wedding Anniversary of the Parents Recalls Many Other A goodly number of relatives and friends assembled at the home of Dea J. W. and Mrs Crockett in Champlain on the afternoon and evening of April 25 to celebrate the galden anniversary of theii: wedding. The afternoon was passed with music, reminiscences of 50 years ago by the bride and groom, the reading of letters of kindly greeting received from absent friends, a pleasant address, the reading of poems appropriate to the occasion and words of prayer by the pas tor, Rev J. T. Buzzell, after which light refreshments were served. A large number were present in the evening and the Colchester orchestra rendered several fine selections which were greatly enjoyed by all. Vocal music with words suited-to tWoceasiea-was given by J. M. McNall, accompanied by Mrs Emma McNall. The letters were again read and the presentation of bank notes, silver,: sold ard other beautiful gifts was made by Al- Dert vvaiston, in a nappy manner, followed by words of acceptance and thanks bv the bride, interspersed by quaint remarks by the groom. The bride exhibited her wedding shawl and the groom donned his wedding hat, these articles being all that were left of the finery of 50 years ago. Cake and coffee were served and the company broke up in the "new sma' .hours," wishing their host arid hostess many IMPROVEO MAIL SERVICE Prospects of Additional Mails Between Vermont and the East There i3 a fair prospect of an additional mail service being established between St. Albans and Springfield, Mass. on trains No's 2 and 5 as follows: Leaving St. Albans at 11:55 a. m., ar-rivingatSpnngfieldat6:2op. m. Leaving Springfield at 12:37 p.m., arriving at St. Albans at 8 :os p. m. This additional service will be one of the very best, having very important connections at Springfield lor dispatching and receiving, giving the people of this section of Vermont excellent service for all Southern and Western mail as well as important local service. The large accumulation of mail at Springfield at that time of day necessitates an outlet for dispatching the same. The above proposed service will successfully till the bill, and should a petition be presented, it is earnestly hoped that business men as well as the public generally will give it their hearty support as this additional service cannot but be of accommodation to all. Supt Crandall Retained Superintendent Crandall, whose 17 years at the head of Burlington's water department, has made him an invaluable member of the Queen city's official family, has been re-elected. In view of the democratic tendencies of the new city government it was feared his head might come under the knife, too, but the commissioners voted right at their meeting Monday. Herald Stevens, superintendent of streets for 17 years, was also reappointed. Soldiers Escape from the Guardhouse Six soldiers confined in the guardhouse at Fort Ethan Allen escaped between midnight and morning Thursday, doing the trick by sawing the bars of the window. At the time there were 36 prisoners in the guardhouse but only six took advantage of the opportunity of the hole made by the enterprising man who conceived the idea. The bars were two inches thick and the man or men must have worked on them some time. The sentry found the break at 4 p m and aroused the authorities. Offers of rewards o $30 for each man caught, have been made. You shouldn't miss reading the "Want" and "For Sale' columns in this paper each week.

It seemed peculiarly fitting, that the gclden anniversary should be celebrated on Monday, that being an eventful day in the family history. Besides being the birthday of Mr Crockett and his two eldest daughters, and his wedding day it was his eldest daughter's wedding day and the day jon which the youngest daughter died. John Woodman Crockett was born on Starksboro mountain Jan 1. 1827. At the age of 14 he began the trade ot woolen manufacturer, at Milton, working in the mills at West Milton and Winooski and being ;in partnership with Mr Nay at Hinesburg and Mr Shepardson at Fairfax and overseer for Pearl at Johnson. He was employed in the mills at Lawrence and Chelmsford, Mass, and was a popular and efficient overseer in a large establishment at Glenham Mills, N Y. From the latter place he was obliged on account of failing health to retire to the farm where he now resides. Cordelia Antoinette Parker was born in Milton. A;. ril 6, 1330 and was united ,in marriage r John W. Crockett, April 24, 1S54, at Winooski. Four daughters have blessed their union: Mrs Ellen McNall of Champlain, Mrs Luther Hunt of Stoughton, Mass, Carrie Leo-nette, who resides with her parents, and Nettie Evelyn, who died at the age of nine years. Four geaerations are represented in this family, Mrs J. W. Crockett, great grandmother, Mrs L. A. Hunt, grandmother, Mrs Frank Atherton, mother, and Bby Ruth Merrill Atherton, A PROSPEROUS LODGE New Masonic Lodge In Essex Junction is Growing in Members and Enterprise The annual meeting of the Ethan Allen lodge No 72 F and A M was held Thursday evening and officers for the ensuing year were chosen as follows: W.

JERICHO Trout Fishers The opening of the trouting season was duly observed here but, owing to the high water, with rather a slim showing thus far. There have been several people in town during the week from Burlington who were after a few and were most successful. George Buxton came up Monday, B. R. Seymour and Ernest Spaulding Tuesday, and also Tyler Pease, who it was reported had a string of 30 to carry home with him. Death of Mrs S. S. Briqham The following Fairfax news item will be of interest to the people of this town and Underhill. Rev and Mrs Brigham will be pleasantly remembered as former residents here. 1 Mrs Annie (Beals) Brigham, wife of the late S. S. Brigham, died Wednesday night, April 27, at 7.30 o'clock, after a lingering illness with Bright's disease. The funeral was held at the Methodist church in Fairfax Saturday, Rev C. P.
