day. This closcd the evidence nnd tho
rcst of the day was taken up with nr
guments for thc nrosecution by State's
Attorney Bert L. .StafTord of Rutland
county and for tho defenco by Jasper
G. Pngc of Bristol.
Saturday forenoon James B. Dono
way of Middlebury made the closing
plea for thedefenceand it was probably
the best argument to a jury that Mr.
Donowny has so far evnr made, and
neither he nor Mr. Page minced their
words in referring to the Wrights and
State's Attorney Tuttlo closed the
argument for the prosecution in a half
hour's address, but did not seem to have
much heart or confidcnce in his work.
Judge Miles gave the case to the jury
just before noon on Saturday in a charge
of 20 minutes, which was a clear and
strong explication of the law points in
volved. A complication arose Saturday after
noon at about 4 o'clock, when it was an
nounced that Juror Carlos S. Martin
was taken suddenly ill. The whole panel
was immediately shifted to their lodg
ings at The Addison and Dr. E. H. Mar
tin of Middlebury was called to look
after the sick juror. The trouble with
Juror Martin was diagnosed as acutc in
digestion and Dr. Martin had two other
members of the panel sick on his hands
on Sunday. These were F. L. Kent of
Salisbury and Lewis C. Pcck of New
Foreman Warner on Monday morning
announced that the jury in tho case of
the State va Purinton had a greed upon
a verdict and that the verdict was "not
guilty." The respondent was immedi
ately discharged by order of the court.
Deputy Sheriff Fred E. Rowley of
New Haven and Noble J. Sanford of
Middlebury had charge of this jury in
terchangeably during their deliberations
on the case and Miss Mildred Brooks of
Montpelier, private stenographer to
Attorney General Rufus E. Brown of
Burlington, made a shorthand report of
the testimony for the use of the prose
Immediately after the receipt of the
verdict in this case, Jurymen Martin,
Peck and Kent were at their own re-
quest excused from further service dur
ing the term.
After tho jury was discharged nothing
further was done in court until 2:30
o'clock Monday afternoon, at which
time Benjamin Caswell of Hancock was
arraigned to plead to an informnton
charging him with having had in his
possession at Hancock iu December
last pai ts of the carcasses of thrue deer
killed in the closed benson. The res
pondent nnively acknowledged to having
so had in his possession parts of the cur
casses of two deer but liisclaimed all
knowledge of any third one. Caswell
was fined K0 with eosU of $3.0J,
which he piid. He was repres-Mited in
court by Mr. Iionoway.
Next came the case of George Bai-
nard, who was charged on information
by-State's Attornev Tuttle with having
stolen $114 lrom an uged mnn nained
James Murphy, at New Haven on the
night ot December 12, last. He and
Murphy had been in Vergennes the day
of the happening and there was more oi
less strong drink mixed up with the
case. The respondent pleaded guilty
and was sentenced to serve not more
than four years and not less than tluee
years at hard labor in the state prison
at Windsor. Leroy C. Russell of Mid
dlebury was barnard s counsel.
The case ot tne btate vs Altred l,eno
of East Msddlebury, charged with adul
tery with one Bertha Guyette, both
being set up as married parties, was
got started Monday afternoon, with
Mr. Tuttle conuucting the prosecution
and Mr. Donoway uppearing for the
defence. On Tuesday morning the case
for the deience went to pieces, as the
respondent withdrew his former nlea
of not guilty nnd pleaded guilty to the
charge. The sentence was immediate
ly passed and was for not more than
three vearb and not less than two nnd
one-half years at hard labor in the
btate prison. ine case oi tne para
mour is held in hbeyancc.
No other cases were taken up Tues
day and as all the remuining jury cases
had been settled or continued the jurors
were excused for the term, with the
exception of R. H. Hallock of Middle
bury, who was held as a talesman or
starter lor a new jury should one be
wanted later on. On Wednesday it be
came certain that there would be no
more jury trials at this term and Mr.
Hallock was excused at the afternoon
session, at which little else was done.
An unusual thing occurred on Wed
nesday afternoon when the court cut
down the amount of damages awarded
to Pola Hunt vs William J. Lee from
$500 to $400.
Judge Day presiied over Thursday
morning's proceedings, which came to
a close at 9:10 o'clock, when Sheriff
Olin A. Smith, under direction of the
court, declared the December term of
the Addison county court adjourned
The court was in session in all over
30 days, the term having opened on De
cember 3 and continuing in session,
with the usual recess over Sunday,
except from December 18 to December
30, when there was a recess of 12 days
in order thut importaut cases could be
got ready for trial.

many friends in this locality:
Mr. Pretident and Fellow Sheep
It gives me pleasure to meet the
shepherds of Ohio, and I consider
it an honor to be jilaced on the program
of this association's annual meeting.
Ever since the consolidation we hnve
been preaenting pa))ers on Type, The
Shepheid and His Flock, and various
other subjL-cts pertaining to Merino
.sheep; but today my talk will be on
"General Principles" pertaining es
pecially to problems that are just now
A would-be sheep breeder asked me
recently what is the future for Merino
sheep? Ireplied: "It is just what you
The popular demands and markets
for Merino sheep are just as much the
production of the sheep breeder as is
the type and character of the sheep we
breed, and furthermore, if you have not
helped develop and popularize the
breeed you have not earned a right to
the market. Someone asked me recently
if Hampshire sheep had not already
passed the height of their popularity,
and I replied it they had there was no
one responsible but the breeders them
selves, as Hamshire sheep had just as
much practicnl value today as they had
yesterday. Now the snme problem con
fronts the Merino breeders. If the breed
is not in demand and popular today,
no one is responsible but the breeders
themselves. There are a hundred
breeders today in this State, and more in
other States, who are eomplaining that
the "business is dead," "there is no
demand," and if they keep on eom
plaining and telling that business is
dead it will be deader than a door nail
next year. I don't know just exactly
how dead a door nail is, but the busi
ness will be dead enough it we neglect
our llocks and tell the other fellow we
are going out of the business. If I
wanted to encourage the industry and
bring new nnd younger men into tho
business. 1 would show them a llock in
good condition, a flock representing the
maximum ot progress in the develon-
ment of wool nnd mutton in the Merino
breed that were producing from 15 to
20 pounds on the avcrage and that I
had sold two-thirds of their produce,
reserving the best ewes nnd the best
rams to reintorce the llock nnd that I
cleared 50 per cent on the investment
the lirst year. JMow 1 believe this and
more is reasonably possible and the
reason we are not doing it is our ideals,
are not high enough. We have not
studied our business. We have not
bred well enough and we have not dem
onstrated or promoted their interests
betoro the sheep breeding nublic.
Gentlemen, the Merino sheep business
is dull today. The principlo reasons
nrc the neglect of the Merino breeders
and tho iailure on their nart to solve or
analyze the problems that confront or
dofeat them. I repeat, the breeder who
does not help the business is detrment
al to the industry and the causo of those
who try. Higher ideals and u deter
mined purpose to succeed, saving tho
best ewes for the breeding llock, and
never sell tho best stock ram, are tho
essential features of success in breeding
Merino as in breeding other stock.
Again, don't knock the other fellow.
Ifyou are the helpful shepherd and
neighbor that God meant you to bc you
will help and encourage your fellow
breeder and the interests of the mem
bers of the association, for your inter
ests are. all mutual, and your purpose

Fair Dircctors Meet.
The board of directors of the Addison
County Agricultural society met in the
grand jury room in the county court
house Saturday, January 18, with a
good attendance. Several important
changes were made for the coming
fair. It was voted to rebuild the horse
barn which was recently destroyed by
fire and also to add another cattle shed
to the already long string. It was also
decided to hnve but one band in attend-
ince at the fair and to charge admission
for all four days, which will include
Tuesday, the first day of the fair. En-
tertainment will be given each of the
four days which, it is expected, will
more than even up the change. The
principal reason for this change is that
the directors woulu have more leeway
in case of bad weathpr during the fair."
