Camilla Ukso, the distinguished violinist, Helen Potter, the emiueut reader and impersonator, Miss Marguerite Hall, talented soprano, and August Sauret, pianist, is a combination of talent and aceomplisements that should fill the Town Hall next Saturday evening, May 27th. Madame Urso and Miss Potter are well known and each is pre-eminent in her profession. Miss Hall is a daughter of 1). C. Hall of Boston, leader of the famous Hall's band. She is a delightful singer, and all in all an evening of ricli and varied entertainment is assured. As the entertainment is gotten up for a worthy object in aid of our public library it is hoped the people will turn out. Mr. S. B. Whitney, the well-known organist and director, and who conducted the musical convention here two years ago, will this season take a trip to Europe where he will remain till autumn. A host of friends in this State wish him much pleasure in his trip. Bellows Falls Times. Mr. Whitney is a Woodstock boy, and we take pride in knowing that he stands high in his profession. A tri p to the old world will do him good. We are indebted to Congressman Grout for a copy of his speech on the proposition to make the department of agriculture one of tha executive departments of the government. O. W. Richardson, printer, and a native of Woodstock, died of consumption in Boston, May 20th, aged about 49 years.. He learned his trade in the old Mercury office here, worked on the Age and Standard many years, and served in the late rebellion. He went to Boston about sixteen years ago to work on the Herald, and for the last ten or twelve years was employed on the Advertiser, He was a genial, whole-souled man, and all who knew him will regret to learn of his too early death. Cleanliness is next to godliness, and you can't do much without soap. There is as much difference in soap as in anything else.. Our folks have tried all kinds, but they award the premium to Frank SiddalPs. No 1 oiling or rubbing of clothes soaking and rinsing is all that is necessary. It is wonderful soap. H. E. Richmond & Co. keep it for sale at their drug store in Hatch's block. Try it and you will be pleased with it. Only 10 cents a cake. Pencil Makks. A cold, wet May makes lots of hay, but this May is too much of a good thing ; Judge Barrett is in attendance at Court ; General L. 3, Partridge of Norwich made us a pleasant call oil Monday we wish we had more such Democrats as the General in Vermont; we thought Miss Spring was about to unpack her trunk Sunday last, and take out her summer dress, but on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, she wore the same old sombre suit, and how loDg she will continue to do so, no feller can tell ; Joseph La Mountain, of So. Poml'ret, is a d. b. ; we can't write a local thai will make a soda fountain man smile just now ; they call it the "Landshark" down White River way ; we were glad to see the Hon. Prosper Merrill on the street this week in an improved state of health after his sojourn South he says he encountered bad weather at Washington, D. C. the worst known for twenty-five years by the oldest inhabitant, and it is no better here ; the Semi-Annual Meeting of the Vermont Medical Society will be held at the Van Ness House, Burlington, June 7th and 8th return checks on all the Vermont Railroads, except the Passumpsic lir, J. S. Richmond, Secretary, Woodstock ; Fred Chapman and Dana Bugbee are Avith the surveying party they camp out, and H. Rood is head cook ; there isn't a peep here about Decoration Day what is the matter?. Col. S. M. Pin-gree, of Hartford, and a few friends, made us a brief and pleasant call today the Col. delivers the Decoration Day Address at Rutland, and you can safely bet it will be a good one ; don't forget the Grand Concert next Satur day evening ; the average gardner looks blue ; if you have music in your soul, you want an Orgauette ; don't be 'scart' the railroad won't run through your back kitcheu this summer.

Any one wishing for a musical instrument, either to use alone or as an accompaniment for the voice, and not possessing the requisite knowledge to make use of one if they had it, will find just what they want in the Mc- Tammauy organette, both in price and simplicity. Just come and convince yourselves at W. D. McMaster's, River Street. The remains of Norman Williams (colored), who died at Worcester, Mass., was brought here for interment on Saturday.

The Berwick House, one of the best of Rutland hotels, is being painted red, giving a fine appearance to the street. The Howe Scale Company paid about $16,000 to their employees on the 15th.

The Village Improvement Society have set out 250 shade trees in various parts of the city. Ex-Gov. Page has set out and boxed 75 trees on Washing ton and East streets.

Johnson, as Postmaster at Vergennes, is said to have been done by Senator Edmunds against the protest of Congressman Joyce. There are various rumors afloat in reference to the candidate for congress in the first district. The latest is a consolidation and compromise on a new man, and he reported to be a Rutland county man. The suggestion of the name of L. W. Reddington as the Democratic candidate for governor, meets with a hearty response in this section. Hoa, A. L. Miner, of Manchester, spent the Sabbath in town as the guest of Gen. Levi G. Kiugsley, J, L, Brown has purchased the Z. M. French place at the Center for $700. Alice Barrows had the misfortune while at work in MeKenzie's woolen ncill recently, of having the first finger of her right hand caught in the machinery and so badly injured it had to be amputated. L. E. Weymouth lost a wallet containing about thirty dollars on the morning of the 14th, which was found by the writer in the road at the Center and returned to the owner in the evening, and he slept a trifle better, no doubt. Walter Stevens, who doubtless has given up the idea of ever having a lawful right to whip any children of his own, has concluded to go for children in the street with an ox whip, he being a teamster. Look out Walter you are marked. ' On Wednesday, the 17th iust., a little after 12 o'clock p. m., fire was discovered issuing from the horse barn on the farm occupied by Nelson A. Gillett at the Center, The wind was blowing directly toward the dwelling house at the time and soon the house, baru, dwelling-house with ell part, the wood sheds, hog house, and a new carriage house with all their contents except the furniture of three lower rooms in the dwelling house were burned to the ground, and if it had not been for the most strenuous efforts on the part of the few people present, two large barns not more than one hundred feet away must have been burned. Mr. A. B. Gillett of Tnftsville, the owner of the premises, loses about $1000, and the son $200. No insurance. Cause, smoking a horse for the epizootic. Mr. N. A. Gillett wishes us in his behalf to thank those neighbors of both sexes who saved what they could from the flames. South Woodstock: Last week the Green Mountain Perkins Academy closed a very suc cessful term of school, with examinations, prize speaking, and graduating exercises, followed by an excellent address by Rev. S. H. McCollister, D. D., ex-President of Buctel College, Ohio. All the exercises passed off creditably and satisfactorily, with some slight exceptions. One of the prize speakers a young lady was unable to get a rehearsal until two or three hours before her final rendering and consequently did not get a prize, yet she displayed marked elocutionary ability. Through the failure to be present of one of the gentlemen appointed, there were only two judges, these failing to agree, the first prize was divided between H. L. Rockwood and Carrie Walker ; the second was given to F. E. Meacham ; the third was divided between E. B. Mack and Mary Saw yer. 1 he announcement ol the prizes created no small amount of surprise, as the portion of the audience agreeing with the decision was exceedingly minute. Tails vine.

Beware of the stuff that pretends to cure these diseases or other serious Kidney, Urinary or Liver Diseases, as they only relieve for a tune and makes you ten times worse afterwards, but rely solely on Hop Bitters, the only remedy that wilt surely and permanently cure you. It destroys and removes the cause or disease so effectual ly th at it never returns.
