than to Colorado — Springs. Not, yet

of about 2,000, and is a prosperous

Here the Me Pass opens out on the

about 95 per Cent. of consumptives

The followingis the second article
appearing in the Press and Standard,
relative to the history of Shrewsbury
township, Lyooming county: \ '
The most important event 'in the
history of ShrewsburY township, after
the first opening. by Hobert Taylor,
was the advent of George Lewis. He
was a man of •wealth, and built . a re
markable establishment for making
glass at the Lake, since called by his
name. , We have sought diligently
for.material to give , a' history of his
early life, and the motives which im
pelled him to commence such an en
terprise, so deep in the wilderness,
when modes of conveyance were so
difficult, but have , been obliged 'to
content ourselves witha few meagre
particulars. It is certain that he was
English, but the date of his arrival
in this country we have not been able
to obtain.
,In 1794 Mr. Lewis bough a large '
body of lands in. Shrewsbu includ
ing the lake known -by his name:
This was before a tree was gat with
in the present bounds of Shrewsbury,
bat there were settlers on Muney
Creek above Hughesville. We have
no evidence that • • Lemiis took any
steps to • improve his 'land before
1808: About that time he employed
a large number of laborers, who cut
roads and made a i great clearing
about the lake. They also put up
the necessary buildings for. -manu
facturing glass from the beautiful
white sand found ill the margin of
the lake. The main building was a
large stone house ; there were also
three stone dwelling houses and six
framed dwelling houses painted red.
One of these was used as a boarding
house.. A commodious frame dwell
ing hods() was erected fer the rise of
Mr. Lewis.:He had no children, and
his family, consisted of himself and
his wife, Drusilla, andlei sister who
resided witn them part of the time.
The most substantial building of all
was a large stone' barn. , The times
were lively at thalake when the war
of 1812 broke out. The glais works
were in fall i blast, and numerous
hands were busy at variant; kinds of
labor. The little village, which was
really the first village iti the county,
seemed on the high road to prosper
ity. , -
If we are correctly informed the
work went on successfully until after
the, war closed,mhen 'the business
became unprofitable, and after car- ,
rying it on at a loss for,a while Lew. -
is was compelled to sgspend opera
tions. -' In 1822, Lewislwas still at
the Lake with his family, but the in
dicatioris of decay were already ap
parent. The tenant hews were all
empty, and moil business, except farm
ing, going on. Mr. Lewis then had
about four hundred sheep and stock 1
of various kinds, with: plenty of farm
ing and grass , land. His clearings
werelarger than the clearings there
now, for several hundred' •acme then
in fields and fenced have now grown .
up to woods. .
Mr. Lewis, however, was not cal
culated to make money in farming.
He was not practical in his business
matters, and not a man to learn
much from experience: An incident
will serve to show one of his pecular
ities. Virhile his active , business was
going on, he had a " boss " who had
general charge'of his,work, but occa
sionally he would wine around and.
" boss ' himself. On.. one occasion
hie' men were putting . up a Icig house,
and a man was at each comer to 'cut
the notches ad the legs. were' rolled
up to their places. One r of these men
at the corners was the hest axeman
there, and with t a few well-directed
blmis could cat his "nick " as neat
ly as could be desired; while the less
.xpert man at the other' end of the
log would work several minutte lon
ger to get his end ,•ready. • Lewis
came along and stood looking on for
some time ; finally he called the
" boss.". Said be, -- .."_Do you see that
man upon the &nd - there ? " point
ing to the geed chopper. "Certain
ly,"replied 'the "boss." "Well,"
said Lewis, "call him down and die ,
charge him at once; I've been watch
ing hith ever since. I came, and he
sits still about half of she time." The
" bess '-'• knew Lewis too well ' to at
tempt, an explanation. He called
the delinquent who chopped too fast,
and told him' to go to the office and'
nettle up. Lewis was satisfied. Af
ter Lewis was gone the "boss " told
the hand.what was , the matter, and
kept him.. As Lewis did not person
ally know the man, he never knew
the difference, and the circumstance
remained a standing joke in the
neighborhood. ' '
What year Lewis left the lake we
do not know; but ho was not there.
in 1830, for about that time a TOAD
named Adams took the glass' works
and run them a year or so, but be
could not make the business pay and
finally gave it up. •

A poop story of Gov. Cbittenden,
who was one of the early Governors.
of Vermont. He was quite an exten
sive farmer, and in those days to be
Governor did not greatly. interfere
with the incumbent's ordinary voca
tion, as the Legislature was rarely in
session longer than thirty days, and
the Governor only resided at the cap- -
itol during the session. Gov. C. had
two sons. One of them was a boy of
bright intellect, and the other de
cidedly dull. The old gentleman
thought that nature had done enough
for the younger, and that he would
make his way in the world without
more than a common school' educa
tion, but that the , elder one would
need all the aid of a liberal educa
tion to make - up the natural deficien
cy, and he was 'accordingly sent to
college, while his brother was kept

that among the fruits of the Glover

it would not suck 'or drink, and no
amount of effort on the part of the
father, son, or " hired man," could
induce him to take his sustenance.

son: "Freeman, what on earth shall

The first burial of a member of the
Patrons of ,Hasbandry with the hon
ors of "the ! Order that . hai .como to
our notice, took - plane day before yes=
day inifickapoe, when the remains
of Minty --were consigned to
their last rusting place with all jthe
pomp and , funeral pageant .of
Granger burial service. Mr. / Bolin
was a prominent member, and: the
attendance west Very large, some . 460
persons being 1 present:; The -pro
gramme of the burial was -
,about : as
On leaving the residence of the
deceased, the learse which contained
the remains lids flanked, on either
side by thiee pall-beatura,whe - walked
with uncoiered heads and regalias
draped in mourning. Following the
hearse came til e, relations of the de
ceased, and nest marched the Sis
ters of the Order,' clad in full, re
galia.l, The Brethers Came next, and
following them the. bast'concourse of
people, wild had come from- far and
near to witless the ceremonies. The
remains were first taken to the church
where a priest-went through a ser
vice peculiar. to the Catholic Church,
of which the deceased , was a mem
ber. 'When the exercises here had
been concluded; the procession took
up its' march for the c - Ameteryi,wherA
the granger; ftineral rites were per- 1
fortned. The I coffin was placed on
supports directly over the open
grave,' and iremained there till the
impressive and , interesting service
was concluded. G. B. Coffin, Mus
ter of the IFranklin, Grange, dm
ducted the ceremonies.
When the brothers and sisters of
the Grange' of which the deceased
was a member had assembled about
the grave, the Master read a selection
from the burial ritual, folloWed, by a
second 'selection by the Chaplain,
and then the members repeated slow
ly and solemnly the Lord's Prayer,
closing with, a beautiful and apprnz
priate ihymn. . The brothers of the
Order lhen stepped to the grave and
'threw into the opening Reveral boa- -
quets of flowers and evergreens. A
short but powerful , address was nest
delivered by the 1 , chaplain. While
the cciffiii was being lowered, a beau
tiful and soul-inspiring hymn
sung, and during the Singing the sis
ters showered_ boncinets of flowers
upon the descending coffin until it
reached the wooden box at the bot
tom of , the'grave., The master then
sprinkled a portion of dirt thrown
from the grave over, the coffin, and
the service closed, with the solemn
benediction of the Chaplain. Taken
throughout, the ceremonies are very
beautiful and impressive. This is
the first krial of' a Granger in the
the county, and if, wo are correctly
informed, in the State, that is, with

Wiikr is scolding.? It is a lashing
with the tongue, a, moral and, men

about it, no persuasion, no law, no
kindness; it is mere , cruel 'fimish

be ashamed to treat - a' child unspar

the entire mental force very unmerci
fully indeed. "What are you doing
now? How dare you! Didn't I tell
you not to touch that? Yoil are all
the time into some. mischief! 'You
are the most troublesome brat I ever
saw ?" and se; on. Ju'st imagine all
that brought to bear on a sensitive
child, the tone and the look making
every impression seem like'a distinct
blow. The
, spirit is crushed into
silence or grieved to tears; when it is
repeated again and again; bar-,
dened into indifference, or morerfre- -
quentlY into deriance, l screaming back

children get th eit scolding; for they
