FINDS STRANGELY FASIIIONED

Jacksonville road, found a strangely
fashioned little creature in the cross
road Monday morning, in the town of
Brattleboro. He calls it a lizard. Itis

HORSE BADLY INJURED.
One of a span of heavy horses, be
longing to Jay Button, was shockingly
injured Saturday when the team became
frightened and ran for a ccnsiderable
distance at St. Albans town before one
of the animals fell upon an iron pipe
protruding above the surface of a lawn.
The pipe was driven entirely through
j the horse's body. Two ribs were frac
, tured and two injured. Otherwise the
. animal apparently cscaped injury ex-
cepi irom ine ugiy wouna.
RELEASED ON BAIL.
Harlow Hatch, held for the murder
of Sumner G. Brown in the former's
pool room in St. Johnsbury last July,
! was released Monday under bonds of
$5000 furnished by several of the young
' man's friends. He has been in jail since
! he was captured by deputy sheriffs two
days after the crime was committed.
A grand jury in Caledonia County
court indicted Hatch for manslaughter
two weeks ago and bail was fixed at
that time. As no motive can be es
tablished for the crime bail is allowable.
It is expectcd that Hatch's trial will
begin early in January.
CATTLE KILLED BY ELECTRIC
Four head of cattle belonging to
Rufus J. Blanchard of Rutland were
killed at Center Rutland Saturday
night, when they ran heatl-first into a
main line electric car. The accident
happened about 8:30 o'clock. The coivs,
which had been purchased by Mr.
Blanchard were being driven towards
Rutland, while the car was on its way
west. An automobile horn frightened
the cows and they headed for the tracks
in the meadow between the West Proc
tor road and the Hogan stop. Two were
injured so they had to be shot.
FIRE AT ST. JOHNSBURY.
A fire which practically gutted three
of the four floors of the Fairbanks Inn
Sunday afternoon made 50 mcm, em
ployes of the Fairbanks Scale company,
homeless for a time. Practically all of
the contents of the building was de
stroyed. The loss, partially covered by
insurance, is estimated at between
$7000 and $10,000. The flames were dis-'
covered about 3:30 o'clock on the fourth
floor near the roof and are thought to
have originated near a chimney. The
third and fourth floors were almost en
tirely destroyed and the loss to the en
tire building by water will be heavy.
It was owned by the company.

OVERCOME BY GASOLINE GASES.
"Petromortis," or death from the
fumes of automobile gas, is given as
the cause of the death of a prominent
Chicago lawyer, who was found dead in
his garage Saturday and the strange af
fair is one that should be noticed by
any automobile owner inteniling tostart
his car insido his garage. Last week at
the Rutland Garage company, two em
ployes, who started a machine which
had been standing on the floor for sev
eral weeks, were overcome by tho
fumes, but because of the sizo of the
room, they recovered after being taken
tofreshair. Itisclaimed by automo
bile experts that gasoline which stands
in a tank causes different gases when
exploded which are fatal in some in-stances.
