NOTES THE question has frequently been asked, “What are Admiral Dewey's church affiliations?Ever since the founding of the Episcopal church in Montpelier, in 1840, the Dewey family has been closely identified with the management of Christ Church, the Episcopal society then organized. Dr. J. Y. Dewey was one of the first board of vestrymen chosen, and his sons have succeeded him in office. The first church edifice was of wood, and was consecrated in 1842. In 1866–68 a commodious church of Vermont granite was built on State Street to replace the wooden structure, and this is the church in which Admiral Dewey has worshipped when he has been in Montpelier.

THE OLIVE The olive is one of the oldest-known fruits. It is noted by Pliny and is frequently mentioned in the Bible, where it forms the basis of many parables and figures of speech. In Grecian mythology the olive-tree occupies an important place, and to-day the <olive branch is the world symbol for peace. The olive-tree itself is rather melancholy in appearance; but the eye soon becomes accustomed to the tone which the olive-trees give to the landscape, and in nearly all the Mediterranean countries they are found almost everywhere. In general the olive will flourish wherever the vine can be cultivated for wine-growing purposes. It will not bear a temperature below 21° or 22° F., and in Europe it cannot be grown above 460 latitude. The young plants and fruit are very delicate, but the tree itself is quite tough. In Italy, where the olive forms one of the principal agricultural products and contributes so largely to the wealth of the country, the trees are cultivated with the greatest care. The kernel of the olive requires about two years to germinate naturally; but it is found that by applying clay and goat manure Nature's processes can be hastened so that it will germinate the same year.
