Long, the tenor of the choir at the Baptist church at uenning- inn. to sine for him in private.

Gibson, drug gist, Mr, Van Vleck has bad four years' training in a drug store, serving in one place, and comes highly recom mended. There is a proposal to run a young men's ticket for village officers. This much can be said in favor yqung men, if not too young, that they generally take pride in an official trust and pains to do their work well. The nejr office for Dr. Chisholm in the Gibson drug store building is peering completion. It will be a nice office when done, and the entrance is beside the door to the residence of C. D, Gib son in the second story. For wedding stationery come to this office. The Banner stationery store has a very fine stock to select from and printing is done both by letter press and copper plate proems. We are not out done by anybody in this line.

Y,, was defeated last Tuesday. HnoBick is a democratic town and Mr. Tibbits's candidacy was urged upon him this time, and probal ly that fact is the reason for the resu.t. Jin pre vious elections are highly complimentary and suggestive of great popularity. Last Wednesday evening at the meet ing of the Choral Union, Vice-President Cobb read a letter from Prof, Meitzke of Rutland, inviting as many of the members of this society as may be able to assist in the May festival in that send him through Mr.Cobb their names.

The insurance controversy begins to attract tbe attention of our exchanges. The Troy Press of Monday says : "From the extremely cordial relations existing between the Hon. L. P. Norton and the Hon, A. P. Childs, as shown by their friendly puffs of each other in tbe local papers, it is thought they contemplate forming a copartnership in the life in surance business. It will make a solid firm." The general agent ot the Northwest ern life insurance company pays his respects this week again to the New York life company. These arguments pro and con will serve to draw publio atten tion to the merits of tbe respective companies in controversy. The statement of Mr. Norton this week seems to be in accord, in its argument, with the re marks we have heard for several years. In fact tbe Northwestern has attracted the attention of capitalists and prospective policy holders atthe east, and Mr. Norton is competent to discuss its side of the question. The Village Fathers.

Last evening at the hospitable home of Decon Myron Clark of Shaftsbury, there assembled a company numbering, more than one hundred, Ths spacious residenoe was crowded with happy faces.

Several wars upon all the tick ets, among whom we might mention David F. Sou res. Geo. F. Graves. Jobn Nash, and possibly one or two others. Ed. S. Chandler was voted for unoo one ticket for 'sealer of weights and measures,' but as that office has been abolished there is none awaitinar althoush eleoted unanimously, Tbis condition of tickets made so much work for the can vassers that It was a late hour in the evenintr before the result was known The result on ths selectmen is gratifying to every inouitniiui citizen, me rule should be to retire one each year and thus keep in the service of the town a majority of the selectmen who are experienced. This rule, if followed, would insure competency in tbis one of the most Important offices in town adminis tration. The same remark applies with equal force to the listers. Tbe town veted $50 to Custer Post towards the ex penses of Memorial Day. The article 'to see is the town will adopt the town sys tem oi scnoois, was negativea Dy tne decesive vote of 209 noes, to 18 yeas. It was leit that our Uraded Schools sup plied all that was Isckine. and that the outlying schools could profitably send tneir advanced scholars to these two Graded schools rathsr than to come under the town system with its central high school, etc lue discussion of the day occurred upon the highway tax muddle. That is, it is a 'muadie if the tax is not voted in money. After some discussion the tax was voted to be raised in cash and that ends the matter for two years at least. The legislature that needs a scribe to re write its bills before action is taken is a body likely to pass just such a law as our present No. 12 of 1884. And we shall have just such a botch of tbe statutes (tnis awe of a general revision Dy competent lawyers,) as lone as towni Bend tbe motley assembly they do to montpelier, and call it a Legislature. Ihe tax voted was one hundred cents on the dollar, as per tbe recommenda tion oi the selectmen in tbs town reports. Good News-The Fisher Mill Sold. We have it from what we consider good authority that probably before this reaches our readers the Fisher Mills will have passsd into the hands of a firm who will run them. It has been known for some time that negotiations were pending for tbe purchase of this admirable property and hopes have been freely expressed that the sale might be consummated, This is likely to be the case. The firm is tbe old and reliable one of Knower, Haines & Cooley, whose New York office is at 24 and 26 Thomas street. Mr. Haines, by the way, was formerly in tbe employ of the late Hon. Setb B. Hunt, and knew about tbe or iginal erection of the mill. Armed with ample capital, this enterprising firm will give the business interests of Bennington a great boom when they start their looms, It is said that one of the gentlemen in interest will reside here, and that tbe style of cloth made ill be of a tine and bigb grade, calline into service a corps of employes such us any village would be glad to welcome among its permanent inhabitants. We hope that these and many other things will become true before long, and tbey are certain to if the above firm purchase this property. Last Evening's Serenade. The Hon. John W. Williams, the popular shoemaker near 'the corners' in this village, elected by ths suffrages of his fellow townsmen to the lucrative and responsible office of 'Inspector of Leather,' was complimented by a serenade last evening. The occasion was a complete surprise to tbe Honorable gentleman. Our citizens turned out en masse, and, accompanied by the band, appeared entirely unannounced. Speech fail ed, so the address of welcome which might otherwise have graced the pages of history is lost to posterity. 'Looks,' however, 'spoke volumes,' and the honors of the evening were duly exchanged. It is in order to explain that tbe successful candidate for the office ot Inspector of Leather was in the midst of preparing for the entertainment of a few chosen friends when the public ceremonies appeared, and later on this banquet was duly served but pen fails to record further, We only pause to say that the Inspector of Leather of Bennington would have been glad to have invited all in to partake of his hos pitality, but space and time forbid, as well as rations, and for that reason- space and time we conclude this re port. North Bennington. Samuel Simpkins died at North Bennington March 4th, aged 20 years. Burial at Shaftsbury Ceuter Thursday afternoon. The Y. W. C. T.

The Baptist church have decided to oall the Reverend Mr. Shepard to the pastorate. He is a young man, and conies highly recommended from his former charge in Massachusetts. H. T.
