Bratti.khoro, Vt, June 17. The rumors
upon which yesterday's dispatches were
based concerning the inBolveney of the
First National Bank of Briuleboro ure more
than realized. Although tliornnifh in
ventigation had not begun at 2 o'clock,
enough ih already known to warrana tne
statement that the loss will reach upwards
of a quarter of a million of dollars through
forgeries of the president 8. M. Waile,
who has undoubtedly left the country,
and the director believe has taken a large
sum of money with him: how much can
only be determined by a seanhiiii; investi
gation which will be begun on the arrival
of Bank Examiner Hendree to-day, who
will act as receiver for the president.
The forged papers include the Connec
ticut lliver Railroad for about $.0 000,
Frederick Billing $20,000, Tronor W. Park
$20,000, Lyon & lleuly.of Chicago, $20,000,
Laiinwn Locomotive Works about $12,000,
C. J. Amidon, Hinsdale, $15,000, Vcrmilye
A Co , New York, some 75,000 and others.

Waile has insisted on having nocashiur,
as being an unnecessary expense, and Jias
officiated himself as that ollicer of the
bank. It is Lelieved that his frauds have
been going on over ten years having bc
gnu when $70,000 was loaned to Wuito's
orothcr in Chicugo to help him out of a
dilliculty in a bank. He took fraudulent
notes as collateral for this debt, and these
he passed on tho directors as assets.
Bank Examiuer Hendree first discovered
the discrepancies and notified Waite of
his discovery, and it is supposed that he
granted Waite's requests and allowed him
a week lo make up the missing amount.!
Waite improved bis time by bidding
Ids wifo good bye, on a pretense of going
to New York on business and he next
wrote from Portland: "I shall quit the
country." Detectives believe that he has
committed suicide. Certificates of stock
have been issued for which as yet there
has been lio record found, and u double
issue will undoubtedly bo unearthed. The
books of the institution are badly gardled.
The present board of directors consist of
S. M. Waite , J. M. Tyler, at present mem
ber of congress from this district, T. A.
Fash, W.T. Kiehardson, 11. C. Milliard,
of Ilratilehoro; Warren Parker, of Putney;
Addison Whitehead, of Vernon; W. P.
Kiclmrdsoii, of Chester; and C. J. Amidon.
of Hinsdale. Two of the members claim
to have never qualified. Suits have been
brought against these directors by the
stockholders who claim derelictiuii of
duty. Several stockholders are known to
liavo lost their all by the collapse, and the
feeling against the directors is very strong.
It is believed that some of the directors
are also ruined, and that another county
bank will stiller.

Glycerine is the sweet principle of
oils, the base of compounds found in ani
mal fats and also in some vegetable sub
stances. It is a product of the process of
saponification. As prepared by the
pharmaceutists, it is taken np with toil
ing water from its mixture in a free state
with the plnmbiferons map called lead
plaster. The plaster is made by boiling
together litharge (oxide of lead) alive
oil, and water. The oil is decomposed
by the lead taking its acids, and tbe
glycerine is thus liberated. The lead ia
got rid of by filtering, and the wafer ia
removed by evaporation at a tempenture
tselow 212 degrees, leaving the glycerine.
Various other methods of prepariig it
are in use.

The Yalue of a Business Education,
It is said by good authority thai
ninety-seven of every one hundred that
engage iu mercantile pursuits fail. It ig
also contended thnt there is no necessity
for so large a porcentage of failures: that
the existing cause in most cases is a lack
of business education or training, and
that defeat follows in the footsteps of
ignorance. A man would not undertake
the practice of law, or medicine, or en
gage as an enginoer or an artist, without
a preliminary education for tlie special
Held of his endeavors. But thousands
recklessly enter into the arena of busi
ness, seemingly without thought, and
certainly without previous special educa
tion. Edward T. Freedley, in his prac
tical treatise on business, says: "Every
business that is worthy of the name has
two departments; its science, to be un
derstood by study, and its art, to be ac
quired by practice." Many writers be
lieve that business education should
commence at youth, and that, instead of
sending a young man off to college to
learn Greek and Latin against his will,
if his predilections f avor, after a thor
ough practical education, he should be
inducted into the mystery nnd nrts of
that particular line of trade for which he
expresses a decided preference. The ad
vantage of nn early educution is, thut his
knowledge comes, as it were, automatic
ally, nnd he really grows up' into and
with the business, while, in later years,
learning is acquired by much harder
effort and more mechanically.
To the successful merchant there must
bo ever present a wide scope of informa
tion, lie must be versed in the styles
and qualities of goods, and know their
adaptability to ends and uses. He must
know their comparative worth and rela
tive fineness; their special adaptation to
givon localities ns well as their seasoiia
bleness nnd durability. Ho should hare
full knowledge of the various markets
for the goods he deals in, and inform
himself as to the advantages which one
market affords over another, in point of
price, or other feature of benefit. He
should employ tho best judgmeut in
purchasing the proper quantities in their
season, and study to forecast the market.
He ought to carefully weigh the question
of supply and demand, and particularly
note the liability of his goods to deteri
oration. But how can all theso things be
accomplished without special fitness by
study and experience? A neglect to ob
serve any of the things we have .suggest
ed is very likely to entail loss, if not dis
aster. How can a mere novieo in business
guard against any of tho results which
follow from any of tho conditions here
suggested? He must grope blindly in
the dark, and if failure threatens he will
be powerless to arrest its progress; be
sides, by his ignorance, he heeds not the
r . - ... ,1 l,,a
impending shadows tliai inn acro
path, betokening a sure coming misfor
tune. Wooed by his ignorance, he, as it
were, floats on in utter heedlessness of
that fate which soon will engulf him in
irretrievable ruin. But to hiin who is
rooted and grounded in the knowledge ot
his business, and the dangers that beset,
there are materials of assistauce on even
hand that aid in averting the calamity ot
failure, and beeoruo oft times the step
ping stones to a future success. In the.
race for business existence, the educated
and enlightened merchant has by far the
liest chance. Ignorance is handicapped,
but education has the inside track, and
bound to win. The young man who
looks forward to a mercantile career will
do well to thoroughly acquaint hiuifc
by study and practical observation,
the laws of trade and business, and once
having fortified himself with a snflicieut
knowledge, he may reasonably hope tor
abundant success in his chosen neW
