There was little in the appearance of
Col. Roosevelt to indicate that he was
not in his usual hpalth. His face has
not lost its color and as he sat propped
up with pillows he moved about easily
and apparently was free from pain.
As he talked he used his characteristic
gestures although with perhaps less
vigor than is usual with him, and at
times his laugh could be heard in'the
corridor outside. He scemed deter
mined to make his stay in the hospital
an enjoyable vacation. His three
children, who are in Cnicago, dropped
in to see him three times during the
day, talking for a half hour each time.
Mrs. Roosevelt would not permit them
to remain longer, lest her husband tire
Once during the afternoon, Mrs.
Roosevelt found G. K. Davis, secretary
of the progressive national committee,
in Col. Roosevelt's room. He remained
there only a few seconds after the ap
pearance of Mrs. -Roosevelt who exiled
him to the coridor.
Messages of condolence continued to
pour in today from all parts of tho
world. Among them were cablegrams
from crowned heads of Europe. Col.
Roosevelt read over a large number of
telegrams but found it impossible to re
ply to them all. One of them was from
Samuel Gompers, reading:
"Upon learning of the outrageous
attack upon you I was too much shock
ed to find expression. ' I join with the
men of organized labor in common with
all our people who are profoundly hop
ing for and expecting your speedy
Col. Roosevelt's old friend, Father
Curran of Wilkes Barre, Pa., arrived
at the hospital late in the day, having
come from Battle Creek, Mich., to see
the colonel. An hour before he arrived
a telegram was received from him say
ing. "I cannot rest until I see you. Will
be at hospital today.",
Col. Roosevelt talked with him 15
NO POISON ON DULLETS.
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 16. All fear
that the bullet with which Col. Roose
velt was shot might have been poison
ed was dispelled today when Prof. R.
E. W. Sommers, analytir. chemist, no
tified District Attorney Zabel that no
traces of poison were found by him in
the empty shell and upon the other
bullets in the pistol with which John
Schrank shot Col. Roosevelt Monday
night. A solution made by Prof. Som
mers from scrapings from the bullets
and the empty shell and inoculated into
guinea pigs, but no traces of poison
To satisfy himself of the mental con
dition of the would-be assassin and as
the first step in the preparation of his
case, District Attorney Zabel has en
gaged the services of three alienists to
examine Schrank. It is understood
that each alienist will make his indiv
idual examination of Schrank and then
Schrank spent most of today writing
but so far nothing he has written has
been made public. SherifT Arnold says
Schrank has not attempted to pass
anything that has been written out of
his cell. Until he does this the sherifr
will not avail himself of the privilege
of scrutinizing any written communi
cations. The letters found on Schrank after he
had shot Col. Roosevelt, indicate, alien
ists say, paranoia. Rutland Herald.
THE EXCEPTIONAL MAN.
Only the exceptional man, the ex
traordinary man, can offer to the
world such an exhibition of fortitude
as Theodore Roosevelt gave when suf
fering from a serious hurt no ono
knew how serious it might be and
against the protests of his physicians
and fhe entreaties of his friends, he
insisted upon making his speech at
Milwaukee Monday evening. But it
was characteristic. Mr. Roosevelt
showed the indomitable courage, or to
use the word that he would be al
most certain to use, the grit, that is
ingrained in his being. Upon most
men the cfTect of a bullet wound, even
of a wound much slighter than that
received by Mr. Roosevelt, is imme
diate disablement. We must look to
the field of battle where in mad ex
citement men fight on unaware of se
vere injuries, for a parallel to what
Mr. Roosevelt did at Milwaukee. In
stances of personal and physical hero
ism nre common upon the battlefieltl,
but probably the history of politics
afTords no example of it worthy to be
compared with this. It was rash, it
was an act of hardihood, we may say
even that it was nn act of folly, but
it was characteristic, and the judgment
of the country will be that it was mag
nificent. Certainly it would have been
more prudent for Mr. Roosevelt to
abandon all idea of addressing an au
dience, and to put himself in the
hands of a surgeon. That, however,
would not have been like Mr. Roose
velt. Peril does not suggest prudence
to him, it arouses all his unflinching
courage. New York Times.
GOV. WILSON STARTS OUT.
Cnndldate to Make Two Days' Trlp
-Cancela Other Engagementi,
Princeton, N. J., Oct. 16. Reluctant
ly, Gov. Woodrow Wilson started on a
two days' campaign trip tonight
through Delaware, West Virginia and
Western Peonsylvania. He had tried
to have these engagements cancelled,
he said tonight, because he did not wish
to be the only presidential candidate on
the stump. The local committee were
unable to break previous arrangements,
but the governor will do no- speaking
after Saturday night when he rnakes
two addresses at New York and Brook
lyn. The governor said tonight that be
fore the attempted assassination of
Col. Roosevelt plans had been made
for a trip through Maine and eastern
Massachusetts as well as Pennsylvania.
These had been definitely abandoned,

and Judge W. R. King, national com

Farrington, youngest son of Mr. and
Mrs. F. H. Farrington, met with a fatal
accident while automobiling in Big Stone
City, South Dakota, Wednesday evening
and remained in an unconscious condi
tion until Thursday morning, when he
died. William R. (Ray) Farrington was
born in Brandon on Jahuary 1, 18S1, and
was gratluated with honors from the
Brandon high school, the University of
Vermont, and the Boston University
Law school. He was admitted to the
Vermont bar but wasobliged to abandon
his profession because of his health,
which demanded an outdoor life. His
health finally improving, he took a
position with the Gold Securities Co. in
Big Stone City, South Dakota, last May
and was connected with the mortgage
loan department of that firm, with
whom in a legal and business way he
had realized the promise of a successful
career. Mr. Gold is accompanying the

TO FINANCE THE FARMERS.
It is a most intere'sting suggestion
which Mr. Taft makes in his letters to
the Governors of the difFerent States,
lushed into print this morning, for the
establishment of agricultural credit sys
tems operating through land mortgage
banks, and co-operative mortgage bond
societies. Germany has long operated
such a system to the great advantage
of her farmers.
The aim is to secure for our own
farmers the $6,000,000,000 they have to
borrow each year at a rate of interest
from 4 to 6 per cent, instead of the 8
per cent which they now pay. It sup
plies to the farmer the machinery fof
financing his business just as that of in
dustrial corporations is financed.
It is only a preliminary andpartial re
port from Ambassador Hernck which
has beeir made upon it. It has yet to
be featured in detail. The singular
thing is that Mr. Taft should break out
with this appeal for it. The StateK
must act if action is taken at all, and
the Governors can do nothing in con
nection with it at this time. But the
farmers of the country realize it was
Taft who snuifed out the Country Life
Commission which was established by
Roosevelt for this very field. And
Taft's promotion of jug-handled reci
procity with Canuda was a blow the
farmers remember in the keenest way.
If Taft had any chance of election at
all, one might think that his rushing

Century Club Entertalnment.
The Century club gave its first enter
tainment of the series at the town hall
on Wednesday evening. Every seat in
the hall was taken at the hour an
nounced for the beginning of the enter
tainment, which was one of the
best ever given under the auspices
of the club. White's Musical Re
view, the Women's Club of Symphony
City, rendered a program of vocal and
instrumental music of high order and
pleasing to the audience, which was
evidenced from the many encores. The
singing of "Good Night" by the entire
company, as a finale, was highly com
mented and it was the concensus of
opinion that this entertainment was the
best ever given in the history of the

The Freshman Banquet.
Chaperoned by Professor and Mrs.
Cady, and accompanied by many upper
classmen and a few sophomores, the
class of 1916 went to Rutland for their
banquet. In previous years it was us
ually well understood who the president
was, though his identity was kept
secret. The class of '16, however,
in some way kept the rest of the
students guessing and it was not until
the afternoon of October 10th that
Arthur J. Mott of Bristol was known to
be at the head of his class. Miss
Roberta Arnold is vice-president;
I. Glenn Anderson, treasurer; Miss
Anna Fisher, secretary. A number of
tmcounters between some of the more
fiery-tempered members of the two
classes particularly interested in ihe ban
quet occurred during the week before.
A rather spectacular ''scrap" resulted
when some inquisitive "sophs" at
tempted to eavesdrop about the windows
of the Physics room in which the Fresh
men were holding a meeting. Some
panes of glass were broken and quite
an amount of yelling. The afternoon
of the banquet the freshmen met at the
station ready to take the train to Rut
land. They were almost all at the banquet,
only a few being unable to get away
from the sophs. The banquet com
mittee of Messrs. Giilmore, Bruce, Mc
Closkey, Misses Fisher, Myers and
Bosworth arranged what some of the
upper classmen call "the best feed
ever." The following toasts were
given, Donald W. Saulisbury being
toastmaster: "Class of '16." Arthur
J. Mott; "The Faculty," Marjorie Lee;
"The Paddle," Alban J. Parker: Prof.
Frank Cady; "Our Worthy Sophs,"
