CLAIMS HE WAS ROBBED.
Gero Had Seyeral Drlaka vrlth a Stran
ger, Who Did the Rent.
A bold robbery was reported to the po
lice Thursday by Joseph Gero, a teamster
living on Bradley road, and from whom
an unknown thief forcibly took S192 short
ly before six o'clock the afternoon before.
The robbery took place on North Wlnoo-
ski avenue. The police are now conduct
ing a hunt for the man, but Gero's tardl
ness In reporting the robbery gave him
such a start that it Is doubtful If he can
Gero had the amount In n wallet in an
Inside pocket of his coat and was Intend
ing to pay a bill of JI25. On North Wl-
nooskl avenue he was accosted by a man
of apparently 25 or so years of age and
who. calling him "Joe." asked If he would
not buy him a drink. Gero took a dollar
from his roll and handed It to him. The
man bought n quart of cheap wine at a
second class place nearby and both men
then went into a house and drank It.
Gero thinks tho name of the man who
lived in tho house was Smith.
The stranger gave Gero tho change fiom
his dollar and after they had sat around
the house for a while both got up and
went out. When nearly at the corner of
North Wlnooski avenue and First street
the younger man grasped Gero and with
the words "give up that roll" slid his
hand Into Gero'B coat pocket, took the
wallet and was away nlmcw-t before Gero
knew what had happened.
The thief took the course down through
the old ball grounds and, although a cry
was raised and a crowd went In pursuit,
no sign of the man was seen He Is de
scribed as being of about Id') pounds In
weight and about five feet nine Inches In
height. He had on a light coat of sort of
a mixed brown. The general description
answers that of one of the men who
broke out of Plattsburgh Jaii two or three
days ago. Gero or any of the; other people
In the Smith house do not remember of
having seen him before.
The $192 represented the total of Gero's
summer's work. Tho roll consisted of
three, i'Ji bills, three twos, one dollar bill
and the remainder In fives and tens.

NEW INDUSTRY IN TOWN.
Kureka Vending Machine Company

Burlington has a new industry. It Is lo
cated In the building at 24 Mechanics lano
nnd is known as the Eureka Vending Ma
chlno company of New York State. The
company has been Incorporated with a
capital Btock of $50,000, of which $26,000 has
been paid In and the promoters expect
within W clnj'fi to be shipping goods to all
points in New York State. While the
company has its factory and office here, it
supplies only the New York State trade.
The trade In Vermont Is taken care ot by
the head factory at St Johnsbury. The
manager of the Burlington industry Is J
Edward Alexander of St. Johnshury, and
O. B. Arnold of this city Is also interested
In the concern
The concern comes to Burlington all
ready to do business, It has purchased
the machines for making Its products and
s soon as these ate Installed with motive
power operations will begin. Much of the
valuable equipment Is now in the plant.
In ft about $5,ooo worth of tool equip
ment Is here and a number of machines
are ordered and on the way. The new
concern will manufacture vending ma
chines, moro commonly known as slot
machines for sanitary water cups, toilet
paper, gum, chocolates and candy. The
manager of the industry stated yesterday
that the trade for the company's products
has been established some tine, and that
all that was necessary now was to get
the machinery Into operation to supply
the demand for the vending machines.
The mechanism of the vending ma
thlne.s Is so perfectly adjusted that H re
quires skilled labor to assemble the vari
ous parts. It Is estimated tint when the
Plant Is In operation nbout 50 men will be
employed. The company will have Its of
rice and salesroom In the rront of thn
building and the largo floor space In the
rear will be devoted to machinery. About
M.OOO tons of the latter will he Installed.
On the upper floor of the building will be
located the shipping room and other do
partments connected ultli the concern.

At the recent Iowa fair there were on
exhibition 9.71 pure bred cattle from the
best herds of the middle West, 2.11G pure

mares and several hundred sheep, all ot
which could have been sold readily to
the farmers on the grounds for much
more than Jl.nno.ovi, Exhibitors at tho

There Is noticeable at nil fairs held

which Is due to the high cost of feed In
the last year. A feature of the Iowa fair
which throws light on the highest pricos
of beef was the fact that there were
about as man dairy animals as animals
f the beef breeds In the cattle show. Ktve
years ago beef breeds at the Iowa fair
outnumbered dairy stock live to one.
Kreeders send their livestock to tho fair
as a business proposition. They are send

farmers are seeking that class of live
