Mrs. Turner admitted to the of

that he drew his money from his

to drive the vehicle upwards of six

With the excellent facilities that
are at hand for charging the storage
batteries at the station-house, the
new patrol ought to prove very eco
nomical. Engineer Loomis estimates that
the power is snfilcient to drive fhe

from 15 to 18 miles an hour. The
batteries are capable of supplying
energy for about a tnlrty nine run

Detective Burlison Has Found
Malignant , Letters
The marriage of Mr. Griffith G.
Roberts, jr., of Northfield, and Miss
Sadie F. Smith, of Northampton,
which was postponed two weeks ago,
because the intended bride and
groom had received threatening let
ters, hinting of bullets, Paris green
and certain destruction, took place
Thursday at the home of the groom.
No more letters have been re
ceived by either of the youngpeople
since Detective Burlison discovered
the identity of the writer.
According to Detective Burlison
the author of the letters was a
Northfield farm hand, who was in
fatuated by Miss Smith.
The case will be brought either to
the attention of the next grand jury
or the postal authorities.
The newly married couple is fear
ful that more letters will be received
or thatsome attempt will be made to
injure their property. Mr. Burlison
apprehends nothing of the kind.
The groom resolved to go ahead
with the marriage ceremony after
concluding that nothing more was
going to "turn up" in the case. Ac
cording to the marriage certificate,
Mr. Smith is 28; his bride, 20.
