TIip mangk'il body of James Cunnlng-linn, jr., of Hanover, ti graduato of Dartmouth, scientific department, class '88, well known In New England haso ball Circes was found last October on the lioston VV Maine railroad near Olcott station, two liiii. s below Hanover, N. If. He had been r: n over by the north-bound night express. 1' was generally thought that ho had par-t iki'ii too freely of the contents of a jug fii ind empty near the track and had fallen lliM'p UelWCCIl U1U lima, mo uuuiia juui tint lu-en such as to entirely warrant that conclusion, and suspicions of foul play , ic entertained. The town of Hartford, Vt.. six weeks after, offered n, reward of -.; lor evidence that would convict the tmmlerer, and Officers Clark of Lebanon ami Peck of Hartford have been at work on ' he case. They found facts which di-r, ( 1 1 -il suspicion against young men In Han-(i , r. A warrent is now out for the arrest f ( harles Klbby, who has disappeared. YA ni. Stone, another member of a gang of which Kibby was a ringleader, has lied to C.uiaila. On the fatal night Cunningham left his siti i' at Hanover, and said that he was foiii; up the street, but would return in a Fi H minutes. Early next morning his fam-ilj ucie notified that his body had been nicked up in pieces on the railroad track neat Olcott. It was ascertained that he ri'ivhed a letter at the post-office at Han-owr, took the 8:30 train for Whito Kiver Junction and returned as farasOlcotton a speiial train from a rally at Lebanon. Kriu Olcott he was obliged to walk to Han- OVCI. Later investigation showed that there was a large pool of human blood back about 13 rails from where the body was found, and that the blood was not strewn nliinu' as in the ease of accidental death. h mcrcnat, which was found In a badly tin n condition two mile? up the road, has in the back, running diagonally across un-uVi i he right shoulder blade as clean and sh.ui b defined a cut as could be made, riii, i ttt i only about two inches longand i;ie- i u'i v sign of a stab in the back. The stiiiiu.'it theory at present is that the mur-,1,1 w i piemedltated, that the letter was a .In,.), that he was wilfully murdered and mi the track to cover up tho crime. 'J in lug may have Important connection wuh the cave, as the otllcers know who received it at tlie express office at Hanover. 'o one now doubts that Cunningham's ile.itli was the result of foul play. Tlir"lliR Six" null nt Krrnr. The social event of the year at Keene, the "I!ig Six" ball occurred Wednesday evening "of last week.

About 110 couples participated in the dancing, while the galleries, which surround the hall, were packed with spectators. The Germa-nla orchestra of Iloston gave a delightful concert for an hour and afterward played for the dancing. The patronesses were Mrs. Horatio Colony, Mrs. S. G. Griffin, Mrs. C. L.

In the afternoon Mrs. Julia Newton gave a talk upon the Importance of farm ers' meetings. She held that farmers needed to organize as well as other people. mil they should not combine to seltlsuly promote their own Interests. Their meet ings should be public educators, banners need a good education to carry on their work. Formerly, when there was so much manual labor to be done on the farm, there was not time for this; but now there are more opportunities, and more advantages, also, because of the Interest in farmers' work recently shown by the state and national government. George 0. Wright of Walpole, X. II., spoke upon "Private dairying." He said that the associated creameries and private dairies are not antagonistic, but that the creamery helps the farmer and private dairyman. That butter made from one herd In a careful manner must always bring a better price than that from mixed herds. He urged absolute neatness from the first to the last and attention to the smallest details, saying that we could leatn much from the city business man, wlio comes Into the country and purchases a farm, and shows by his work what can be done by system and ability, and his method of disposing of his products. He advised all farmers not to be satisfied with present attainments, but aim for something better all the time. V. I. Spear followed with an address upon "Raising and harvesting farm crops." Ho pointed out the necessity for studying economy. Tho best economy is always found where the production is made to be large per acre. He recommended a liberal use of clover and tho early cutting of hay where the fields are rich enough to grow a second crop. With regard to growing corn, he said to use all tlie modern machinery the corn planter, harrow, weeder and cultivator. With these it would not cost much more to raise corn in the East than West. He thought the silo was the proper thing and spoke of the various ways of stowing away fodder, saying that on small farms it could best be done without cutting. Mr. Spear then referred to other fodder crops. Peas and oats sowed together in the ratio of one to two and one-half and cut In blossom are excellent. Barley can be kept standing ln the field until snow comes and cut green, as frost does not affect it. He could not recommend the growing of much grain, because the straw Is worthless and the cost of threshing Is heavy. The main discussion brought out at this session was with reference to the silo, It being held that it could be used to advantage for storing corn fodder. Kvening Nei.lan. Friday evening tho last session of this series of meetings was held. Misses Gertrude Gorham, Huth Noyes and Abbie J. Prouty of the High school gave excellent recitations, and the program was further enlivened by singing by Mr. Miller, with Miss Izetta Stewart as accompanist. A fair-sized audience was present. The principal address of tho evening was delivered by C. M. Wlnslow of IJrandon upon "The Influence of heredity." The reason why progress in breeding stock has been so slow, he said, Is because man lives so short a time there is no continuation of method. As illustrating the changes that can take place, he cited the case of tho buffalo. Many years ago It was a large, short-legged animal. Then It leisurely roamed tho plains whero there was an abundance of food. With tho advance of civilization, however, it had to lleo before tho hunter, or travel miles In quest of food. This, together with the fact that of tho young buffaloes only the swift or long-lesgcd survived, has made the buffalo of today smaller and longer-legged. To Illustrate how both good and bad traits may bo perpetuated In mankind and shown at different times, Mr. Wlnslow gave a detailed account of the genealogy of the Jews Wild animals do not change rapidly, but put them In the hands of man, or place restrictions upon them, and- the change Is more marked. Shetland ponies, for example, are small because of exposure and the scarcity of food on the Shetland Islands. Coming to the more practical part, of his subject the speaker gave tho pedigree of "Sweepstakes," tho famous ram that sheared 27 pounds of wool, showing how he received traits through several lines from "Old Illack," and of "Itlsdyk's Ham-bletonian," who had tho Intensified speed qualities and vigor of "Messenger." In his closing remarks Mr. Wlnslow said that the study of heredity should forcibly remind us that traits, evil and good, are handed down from one generation to another. The address was illustrated with carefully prepared charts. II, M. Anns closed the session With a talk upon "Vermont, Its resources and attractions." Ho paid a tribute to Ilrattleboro, and referred to tho resources as they effect tho fanners. Tho largo manufacturing concerns, ho said, enhance tho value of real estate and afford markets for produce. Ho regretted that so few young men had attended tho farmers' meetings, because, ho said, there never was a time when a young man could engage in farming In Vermont more profitably than now. He urged that we should wake up to the desirability of opening our homes to outside people In the summer time, and spoko of the attractions which Vermont has for city people In words so earnest that one would almost have believed that It is, as lto said, a "paradise of God." In ('nnrlimloii. These Institute meetings have been of great profit to those Interested In agriculture In this vicinity. Tho subjects up for discussion have been varied and well treated. Aside from tho addresses and remarks, Protective grange choir and Misses Goodcnough and Herrick, witli Mrs. Dearborn as accompanist, furnished music for tho day meetings, which added to their Interest. To them, and also to the others who took part In tho evening sessions as mentioned In our report, the state board extended Its thanks Friday evening. A NOTED "WOMAN'S POItTHAIT Willi h the Women of l(niin Will .S1111I to the W01I. I'll 1'nlr. We find In a Topeka, Kansas, paper, sent by Mrs. A. J. Hincs, who Is spending the winter In that city, the Interesting announcement that the Wyandotte County Ladles' Columbian association has had painted a portrait of Mrs. C. I. H. Nichols to be sent by the association as a part of its exhibit at the World's Fair. The portrait was painted by a Topeka artist. Mrs. Nichols was chosen as Its subject in recognition of her identification with tlie early history of Kansas and her labors In behalf of the equal rights of women at tho formation of the constitution of the state. She was well known to tho older residents of Urattlcboro through her work here for a long term of years as editor of the Windham County Democrat, the Illness of her husband, who owned the paper, compelling her to assume Its management. The Topeka paper gives this sketch of her life: "Clarinda Howard Nichols was born in Townshend, Windham county, Jan. 2."), 1810, and die;' in Poino, Mendocino county, California, Jan. 11, IKS"). She was one of the earliest and ablest women who, with tongue and pen, championed the rights of her sex. No woman In so many varied fields of action more steadily and faithfully labored than Mrs. Nichols as editor, speaker and teacher in Vermont, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, and California, where she spent the closing years of her life. "From 18-1:1 to ISM she edited the Windham County Democrat and ably discussed tlie many phases of man's Injustice to woman and her helpless condition under the law. In 1S4T she also began addressing the people of Vermont from the public platform on the Inequality of the laws as to tlie property rights of women, and in the same year secured the passage of a law giving to the wife real and personal property, with Its use, and power to defend, convey, and devise the same as if sole. Thus early and by her was made In Vermont the plea for woman's educational, industrial and political rights. "In 18.1:5 she traveled through Wisconsin, lecturing upon temperance and tlie rights of women. In 185-1 she came to Kansas with her two eldest sons and settled at Lawrence, and still continued her favorite work, that Kansas might be as free for women as for men. She attended the Wyandotte constitutional convention in I80O, and sat there dally through all the sessions, the only woman present, watching every step of the proceedings, and laboring with tho members to so frame the constitution as lo make all men and women equal before the law. The women of Kansas will never forget that to her influence In that convention they enjoy the exceptional rights they enjoy today. From Vermont to California she sowed tlie seed of liberty and equality, and nowhere did they take deeper root than in Kansas." FOH GOOD ROADS. (iovi Fuller nml Col Hooker Ailtlres the Vermont I.engne. Gov. Fuller and Col. Hooker were the principal speakers at the meeting of the Vermont League for Good Koads at Burlington last Friday. Gov. Fuller said he became Interested in good roads about a dozen years ago, when two residents of Brattleboro circulated a petition for the improvement of the sidewalks throughout the town. The questioli was taken Into town meeting, and for several years the battle was carried on, the progressive element winning every time until now there were 15 miles of excellent sidewalks and several miles of smooth roadway in that town, and public sentiment had advanced so far that a complete plant for modern road making had been purchased and put in operation. The governor spoke Instructively in regard to the building of macadam roads, and gave interesting statistics which he obtained from the Massachusetts commission. I recognize the fact, he said, that at present It Is not possible to macadamize all of our highways, and that whoever would aid a solution of the case must present some economical system. With tho dirt roads as they are today we must secure a bard and even surface, which can be done by plowing, draining and then scraping Into proper form and rolling into shape, and If a steam roller is at hand a surface can be so compacted, and at a minimum of cost, that tho outlying districts of our larger towns can be made to answer a fair purpose until they can be replaced with broken stone. Tho Massachusetts commission estimate that the cost of keeping a clay road in condition is about 15 cents a square yaid for five years or three cents a year. Good macadam can be laid for (50 cents a square yard that will last 25 years, saving 20 per cent on the cost of construction. A roadbed 14 feet wide, eight Inches deep In the middle and four inches deep at tne edges will cost about $1700 per mile. In closing Gov. Puller called attention to tho road between Bel ows Falls and Saxtons mver, which Is 12 feet wldo and six Inches deep and bound together by crevices of clay. It is a beautiful road and Its cost was about S500 ner m He. Col. Hooker told what had been done In his own town, and read extracts from the road commissioners' report to tlie taxpay ers of Brattleboro. saying that what was good for that town was good for all other towns in tne state.

Crnaliy Itepllrs In a "Hummer Vis itor's" Protest. Mr. Editor Dear Sir: My attention has been called to a letter In your Issuo of Feb. 10, signed K. A. Slack, protesting against building an electric railroad In Brattleboro. Tho writer evidently discusses the matter from only ono side, and that side entirely a selfish one. Let us look at some of his statements. First: He says no argument Is necessary to prove that Main street, between the People's bank and tho Brooks Hotiso Is too narrow for electric cars to run on. Let us see how this Is. Washington street, Boston, in front of tho Adams House Is 50 feet wide and has two car tracks In It, both lolng a very extensive business. Main street, In front of the Vermont National bank Is 50 feet wldo between the curb stones. In front of tho Brooks House and the Vermont savings bank, 47 feet, and this width north to Asylum street. The road commissioners' report for tho city of Boston gives the width of Washington street, near Summer street, as 00 feet wide (this the widest point) and tlie southeast corner only 52 feet. It In lioston there can be run two elec tric car lines on a street from 50 to U0 feet wide, with all its vast business, could not a town of tho size of Brattleboro get along with ono electric lino on a street front 47 to 50 feet wide? Mr. Slack asks, can one-half of the street bo spared for electric cars. 1 lie width of the street has been given above, and as the cars would take up only eight or nine feet in width, running only onco In 20 or !!0 minutes, our peo ple must judgo for themselves whether we would give up half of our street or not. Again, you will notice the complaint of Injuring the roads for pleasure driving. Not a word In favorof, or in regard to, tlie business Interests of the town. I ask which is of most value to our all-the-year residents, a good line of electric railroad that will bring all parts of our east and west village within easy and quick reach of our Main street and depot, or to go without tlie road for the sake of giving our summer visitor a chance to drive on Western avenue for eight weeks in tlie summer? There are many other streets that could be used for pleasure driving. I his is taking Mr. Slack's views that Western avenue could not bo used for anything except elec tric cars it tho road was built. I his 1 do not believe. I have been in towns and cities where pleasure driving and teaming were many times more than It ever could be on Western avenue, with streets no wider, and there seems to be no trouble. Again, Mr. Slack comes here for a short time in the summer, all his business Interests are elsewhere, his taxes paid largely elsewhere, and much as the town likes and appreciates Its summer people, does It hardly seem right for them to say to our people that do business and live here all the year, you must not have the electric road because tho people who spend a few weeks here in the summerare not ln favorof it? Another point made by Mr. Slack in the article was danger to school children and others, claiming that the West End railroad of Boston had killed 200 people (ollielal facts say an and Injured '.'OUU (ollielal facts say 270) during the past year. Now this Is drawing the long bow without regard to facts. Tlie attention of the manager of the West End railroad has been called to the matter and he sends a report which is appended to this article. It seems to me as though the electric railroad, whether ever built in Brattleboro or not, is in the line of progress and convenience for a majority of tlie citizens of the town, and white our summer residents, and some residents that are not in active business, are somewhat opposed to the building of tlie road on account of it would seem, personal dislike or inconvenience to them, I believe that nearly all of the active business men would welcome the building of the road. One other itoint made by Mr. black was that if the road was built, at least one place would be for sale on estern avenue. While we should be sorry to have our nonresidents feel obliged to sell their property here, the opinion of our most conservative men Is that it would make property on Western avenue more salable than now and that he would have iio trouble In finding a customer. While I do not know as the road would be of any direct personal advantage or dis advantage to me, I do believe It Is for the advantage of the town. I am fully In sym pathy with the movement and hope the road may be built. EDWAllII (J. uitosiiv. lioston Street ltnllivny Accidents. West Ksd Stkeet Kailuoid Company, i Hosto.v, J-uliruary II, IW).

These figures show. In connection with the sta tistic of our traffic, that including passengers injured through their own carelessness ln getting 011 aud off cars, and Including all fatal accidents, that oue person was killed for every eight and one-third million car miles run, and out of 120,-000,000 and odd p issengers, seven were fatal y injured and 188 injured severely or slightly, as the case may be. uurstreets are so crowueu mat collisions wun vehicles by electric cars have been In somewhat greater proportion than with horse cars, but the eeneral run of our accidents In proportion with car mileage differs hut little with electric and horse ca s.

On the day appointed for the culogium there assembled at tho nation's capitol such an audience as never can assemble again. The members of the House were In their seats. Then came In tho Senate, two by two. Tho supreme court filed ln, with their stately robes of rustling silk. Tho distinguished generals of tho United States army Sherman, Sheridan and Hancock ''bearing their honors thick upon them," came next. All the foreign representatives, the ministers of kings and queens in their glittering uniforms, followed after. Eminent citizens, like the histo rian Bancroft and tho philanthropist Corcoran, took their scats as honored guests, President Arthur came in, leaning on tho arm of Senator Sherman, The galleries were tilled by attaches of the House and the wives of tho world's foremost men who sat on tlie floor below. The Marine band, the fame of whose silvery music is as wide as earth, had finished their richest harmonies. Prayer had been said and the speaker was announced. We sat In the gallery, whero we could see every flash of Blaine's piercing eye and hear every syllable as it came, clear-toned and sad. Every word was a sympathetic heart-beat for tho noble friend and companion who had suffered so long and so patiently. For an hour did this ever memorable audience listen to the funeral oration with mingled emotions or sadness and gladness sadness at the cause of the oration, gladness that one who had always been so true could bo represented in his death-hour by a friend so able.
