Tlie condition of G F Small, who suffered a fail down the stairs in the Drowne block, Monday morning, is re ported, toda, as critical. Although no hones -vere, biokeu, Mr Small was badly buiised and shaken and a kidney trouh'le from . Inch he had formerly been a suff rer was badly aggravated by the accident. His advanced age is also a discouraging (actor in the case. At the meeting of Lamoille Grange, next Thuisoay evening, the first and second degrei-s will be conferred and all cnndiilales for those degrees are requested to be presen1. The meeting, .yesterday afternoon, was largely at tended, the program, especially the talk by G II Temll, proved very inter esting and instructive and the display of apples was larger than at the pie-vious nn eting. It is now expected that Evergreen Looge, N EO I', of Ilardwick will eil-teitam Lamoille Lodge, next Wednesday evening, in pavment for the bad "w hile.-washilig" the former lodge lf-ceived in the recent membership contest.

A good size circus crowd was on hand at A G Small's throw-a-way deal at nine o'clock, Wednesday morning. In the event, Small was Hue to his advertised word ami delivered the gooiN, all riuht, "without money and without price". All good usable stuff it was, too, and while not charity lot a minute, some of it was caught where it was appreciated. Of com so there was some sciapping, particula; ly when four or five strong men all wanted the same trousers, shirt or coat, but all the mills were good-natuied. As an advertising scheme this throwing a way of goods is new m this vicinity, a fact, that cuts another notch in Small's record for effective originality as a pacemaker in merchandising. MISSING OB GALS. Wolcott Physician Not Heard From Since Oct 15. The unexplained absence of Dr C S Gale of Wolcott since the middle of October has been generally known in this vicinity, but up to this week, out of regard to the wishes of his family, particulars of liis disappearance have not been published in the newspapers. From the fact that bo knowledge of his whereabouts has been secured, newspaper publicity has at last been invoked in the hope that it may be the means of finding further trace of the missing man than thus far has been obtained, if not the man himself. On the evening of Oct 15, Dr Gale, who possessed a large and growing medical practice in Wolcott, left his home by the mail train going west with the announced purpose of meeting his wife at Troy, N Y, where she had been visiting, in order to accompany her home. Before starting, he borrowed a rifle, supposedly for the purpose of taking any advantage of the hunting season that his trip permitted. It seems that his coming to Troy was expected by Mrs Gale, but that if he did not arrive by a certain date, she was to understand that he could not leave his practice aud she was to return to Wolcott alone. While it is known that Dr Gale reached Burlington the same evening that he left Wolcott, all eflWc has failed to trace him beyond that point. Regarding Ins being in Burlington, the Daily News of that city reports as follows: A man answering to the description of Dr Gale was. seen by Adolph Tellier, who runs the mail wagon between the statk.y and the postodice, upon the arrival of' e Burlington and Lamoille train at 9 u clock on the evening of Oct 15, the sameday that DrGale started for Troy via Btiriingtou. The man Mr Tellier saw had a rifle and a dress suit case. After mVttina off the train he was seen by Mr Tellier on the platform of the station. Further tlnui that noth ing is known of him. v,tfe had an hour to wait before taking the evening tram south. He disappeared dining that hour. . - Word was received oy " Frbt'ulwles Jones of the University from Mrs Gale, upon her return to Wolcolt from Troy and a quiet investigation was made in Burlington for the missing man, not the slightest clue being found, however, as to his whereabouts. The police was given a description of him and Dr Gale's fatiier came to the city, investigated hotel registers, looked up boarding houses, made in quiries from old neighbors Mid others on Henry St where Dr Gale and his wife resided while he was attending the medical college, all to no purpose. Dr Gale was a large, powerful man, and was a notable athlete. He was of quiet, retiring disposition, a gentlemen in appearance and demeanor. He made many friends in Burlington, during his residence here, and news of his disappearance was received with surprise and regret. OFF-YEAR ELECTIONS. Republican Successes General on State Issues and Party Majority in (Congre3s not Impaired. As the lesult of Tuesday's elections, Charles E Hughes, republican candidate for governor of New York, defeated William R Hearst, the democratic candidate, by a plurality of 01,109. In New York the rest of the democratic ticket is probably elected, aud that such is the case is probably duo to a large number of democrats voting for Hughes. The New Yoik legislature is strongly republican as heretofore. In Massachusetts, Gov Curtis Guild Tr, was re-elected ovei John B Mor..n, the democratic candidate, by nearly 40,000. In New Ilampshiie the republican candidate lor governor failed to get a majority, but as the joint assembly is strongly republican, he is as good as elected. In Rhode Island, a democratic governor was chosen but the legislature remains republican. The result of 1 he congressional elections throughout the country, shows some democratic uains but the present republican majority will trot be effectively dimmisiied. Death of Beryl Cecil Jones. The death of Beryl Cecil, five-months' old daughter of Mr and Mrs Wallace Jones, occurred, List Sunday morning, after a few days' illness from bronchial pneumonia, against which medical skill and nursing were of no avail. Funeral services were held at the home of the parents on Park St at 1 o'clock, Tuesday afternoon, Rev P A Smith, pastor of Puffer M Echurc' officiating. Included in the many floral offering which surrounded the liny casket was a beautiiul bouquet of white roses from the six babies, who with Beryl were guests at Mrs P A Smith's brownie part., two weeks ago. The remains were carried to Hyde L'ark Center for inteinient in the Whitcomb family lot. The parents have the sympathy of the community in their sudden bereavement, especially as fears have been entertained regarding the remain ing daughter, Ha, who has been suffering from illness in which many sjmo-toms of pneumonia appeared. She is. however, now considered past all danger. LEGISLATIVE LETTER. Last Week For Introducing: Bills, Much Important Business Awaits Attention. Montpelier, Nov 7. Just a little more doing at the capitol this week than last,the committees fairly busy and the grist being turned out a little more rapidly, but, after all, only one of the really important matters finally determined. Capital punishment, plurality, the cattle commission, railroad legislation, and other things of tlie first grade, are still awaiting the pleasure, or dis pleasure, of the lawmakers. The bill providing for skilled supervision of schools, by means of the uniting of neighboring towns and the financial assistance of the state, has passed the senate and only awaits the governor's signature. If the expecta tions of Chaiiman Hulburd and his associates on the committee on education are realized, this piece of legislation will greatly strengthen the educational system of the state. The bill providing for repairs on Limioiile County court house has passed both houses, so the repairs are "safe". The house has passed the grade crossing bill without a ripple of opposi tion, a measure calling for the abol ishment- grade crossings at the rate of r.Va year by the railroads of the state, the towns and the state treasury being called on to share with the tail- roads in meeting the heavy expense in volved. The treatment which this important bill is to get in the senate can only be guessed at. Another measure which has been up several times before and always clowned made a suceesslul trip through the lower branch and is now "up to" the senate namely, the bill removing the $20110 limit on savings banks deposits ex nipt trom taxation. Ihe house evi dently took the word of "the gentle man trom Cavendish that the passage of such a bill would keep money in the state and be beneficial ail around. One of the latest bills creates a state highway commissioner, calls for a high way supervisor in each county, and appropriates $50,000 for improvement ot Veimonis roads. Others piovide aiN-T'itural courses lor certa'n schools; hold Corpotations liable, under pre- scribed :pditions, for injuiy to their employes; calls for a single penal board of three to look after state insti-tulions, one of the three to he purchasing agent; appropriate $19,309 to compensate towns lor freeing toll bridges over the Connecticut and to help build new bridges; d mand the niompt testing of cattle coming into Wimoni ; make a change m commitment fees; allow condemned cat'le to be sold in Massachusetts markets, under regulations, and compel quick report of sales to Vei mon t cattle com mission; provide for centralization of small schools; providing that standing timber sold without the land shall be taxed to the owner thereof, with no deduction for debts owing; punishing municipal officers for neglect of duty, etc, etc, the list including a large num her of trivial measures. A bill m which newspaper men are specially interested is one preventing recovery j for newspapers sent after the subscrip tion has expired. Up to date an even 500 bills have been introduced in the house and about loO in the senate. The revision committee still in hand nearly 100 hills, to be introduced this week. The lull requiring the redemption of all rebate checks given on trains has passed both houses; so has the bill in corporating l he Home Telephone Company, a million-dollar corporation I hat is stai ting out to do some! hing; and the bill 1 1 prevent fraudulent sales by merchants. The house has passed a bid putting park privileges within the reach of the smaller towns. Amonir the "funerals" may be mentioned the bill to repeal the law making Sunday a close season for huntii.g, the bill providing for a distribution of tlie two per cent insurance tax among the towns and villages, and the hill to lim f the term of imprisonment for mioxication. Quite a number of other bills, of no general importance, have been killed. The regulation of telephone lates, and woman suffrage, called out "full houses" last night, at public hearings; and at a meeting in behalf of a "greatei Vermont", a society with that purpose in view was organized, with Lieut-Gov I'routy as president and Hon C S Page chairman of the executive committee. NOTHS. The Vermont Association of Boston, expected to visit the legislature on Fnda.N, is not coming. Gov Poctor was 40 years old, tod;iy, and the general assembly shook his hand and congratulated him. An important bill, strengthening the railroad commission in their dealings wi h the railroads of the state, is looked fur tomorrow ( Thursday). J W S. Lawrence Bapp. Last Sunday evening in Bakersfield, occurred the marriage of Fred H Lawrence, son of Mr and Mrs Geo Lawrence of this place, and Miss Grace LI Bapp of Fairfax, the ceremony taking place at the home of an aunt of the bride. Kev Mr Blount of Bakersfield was the officiating clergyman.
