DEMOGRAT, Funeral of the Man Who Might Have Hade Samuel J. TiWen President. The f,uheral of AmoB^Aldrich was held at his home at\ Woodford, Vt.. Saturday with a large attendance of friends, including a number of lead­ ing Vermont democrats. In addl- tlpn'toother honors given him, Mr. Alancn became a central figure In national politics during the cele­ brated Hayes and Tilden campaign in 1876. He was a candidate for elector on the democratic ticket and received the second largest vote for anv one on the electoral ticket In the contest that ensued, and the appointment of the electoral commission, Mr. Aldrlch took an active part. Before the commission it was argued that the Bepublican j elector who was declared elected was debarred from the position because of bis being a postmaster, and Mr Aid rich was the duly elected candidate. It was finally decided that Mr Aldrlcn's opponent bad resigned tne postmastersbip the dav before the election Had Mr. Aldrich succeeded in being named as the successful man he would have cast his vote for Mr. Tilden, and the latter would have been President instead of Hayes, who was declared by the electoral commission to be elected by one vote.

THE BIG CHATHAM FAIR. By th« \Courier Po «t.\ O' The great big Chatham Fair Everybody will be there The agricultural horse trots to enjoy When the band begins to play. And the horses get away The pleasure seems to be without alloy. How many people go Just to see thi great big show, Although they see the same thing year by year. Next year they'll go again At least nine out of ten. Without an invitation, never fear. We remember how we did When the' writer was a 'kid How we rode behind the big ox teamB, ' And it seems not long ago Though It's sixty years or so And bo looking back its longer than, it seems. O, bow happy we were then, And wa thought that we were men Though we changed our minds little Inter on. But then our greatest care Wus t<i reach the Cbutbam Fair, And it mattered Utile what we rude upon. Wnen we rpathnd n great ble hill Wo trudged ip it uith a will, aud walked wnilu going down the other tdrle. But ttiat we didn't mind. For, we woren't so far hobind And when we reached the level we could ride. There were lots of things to sco, Thuiigh now it seems to me That tbe fair is not so big us It was then And yet I may be wrong And I thought so all along For there's fifty years been added to tue^u But now I recolle It is not a retrospect That is needed most to advertise the Fair, It must be more up to date So you'll please to pass your plate •And we'll serve you what is likely to be there. There's a sbow down by the stand WItb performers well in band Where a Japanese will stand upon his head. While an educated dog Is a rolling off a log And another makes believe that it Is dead. And a thousand things besides To make you split your sides. While you laugh and are so glad to tnink you went. And tbe wild man from Borneo, Will be glad to see you so, nd you'll find bim in a 12 by H^J tent And so we ~BffiPfrT3W -Tiinney-- — -Y\ But thep It comes so easy, don't you know, 8o we'll go Jt while we're young Let the ndet hold bis tongue, And as long as Chatham has a fair, we'll go. Well, we may move away, But tbe Fair baa come t o stay, And new features will be added • every year , Perhaps it may be so, \ When we'-re-ipo oldlio-go; [ That we'llsit down and shed assent tear • •• , _ t , ~ .
