Interesting Kxerrlses on Tuesday Jlve-
In commemoration of the qtiadrl-ccnten-nlal
of this organization, Protective
grange extended an invitation to all grang
ers In this vicinity to meet at their spa
cious hall on Elliot street, on Tuesday
evening of this week, to participate In the
enjoyment of a program specially arranged
for the occasion. About 300 members of
the order partook of the supper in the ban
quet hall, which fully sustained the repu
tation of the cooks of the local grange.
Grange hall was beautifully decorated in
red, white and blue, many flags and a
qttant.ty of bunting being artistically ar
ranged. Soon after 8 o'clock the hall was
filled to Its utmost capacity, nearly all
the granges within a radius of twenty
miles, being well represented.
A fervent and appropriate invocation by
Rev. E. S. Morse, of Protective grange,
opened the program. Music by Protec
live grange choir followed, after which a
cordial address of welcome was delivered
by Worthy Master, P. S. Eauies.
Mrs. A. A. C. Ware followed with the
"History of Protective Grange," which
was concisely and ably presented. She
said that the history of Protective grange
shows that au organization was effected 2.j
years aco. Mav 31st. In the little brick
school-house in John Goodenongh's dis
trict. More than one-half of the 23 mem
hers whose names appear as charter mem
bers, are still members. The organization
was very unpopular hereabouts at that
time, and it therefore required great cour
age for any one to join it. During the
first 10 years the records show that the
number of members was less than 100.
Now the number Is SOS.
11. K. Chamberlain was the first master.
I. B. Taft, John F. Houghton, C. W. Sar
gent, John T. Goodenough, David T. Perry
J. C. Newton, Oscar T. Ware, Geo. W.
Pierce and Prescott Eames have occupied
the master's chair. M. J. Sargent has serv
ed as secretary, 17 years.
A patriotic selection. "Union and Lib
erty," was beautifully rendered by Miss
Cora Eames of Brattleboro. A tabloau by
Protective Grange Dramatic club was pre-
sented In a realistic manner and heartily
encoied. Next followed the first master
of the local cranee. II. K. Chamberlain of
Brattleboro, who recalled the adversity
which attended its early days.
Past Master Chas. W. Sargent then
spoke briefly In his usual pleasant manner
and was followed by the venerable J. I
Goodenough, also a past master, he being
succeeded by Past Master David T. Perry
who responded eloquently to his call. Pas
Master O. T. Ware also entertained the
audience for a tew moments in his usual
A tableau, "The Second Degree," was
then presented, which evoked great ap
plause. District Deputy Geo. W. Pierce,
always a popular speaker, then ably and
instructively closed the list of past masters.
Hon. M. I. Reed of Vernon grange then
addressed the assembly upon "The Educa
tional Features of the Grange."
Mr. Reed was followed by "The Third
Degree," a tableau representing the Court
of Ceres. It was beautifully executed by
the three lady officers of Protective grange
Mrs. Maveretto Fisher, Ceres; Mrs. Lois
Clark, Flora; Mrs. Frank Famham, Po
mona. The marching statl of Protective
grange then cave an exhibition march,
representing the return from the fields.
This was an admirable performance.
The Hon. Willard Bill of Westmoreland
next added materially to the value of the
program by his scholarly dissertation up
on "The Grange In New Hampshire."
Mrs. Wesley Dunklee of South Vernon
read a pleasing selection. Next followed
G. W. Pierce of Brattleboro, who spoke
briefly upon "The Grange in Vermont."
A duet by Misses Brown and Baker of
State Line grange was tho gem of the
State Master Hutchinson of the New
Hampshire grange, whose home is in Mil
ford, then gave a general address which
included some instructive remarks in re
gard to the working of the insurance plan
adopted in the sister state. John E. Gale
was, as usual, an effective speaker, and
gave a vivid portrayal of tho "Future of
the Grange." The entertainment closed
with another tableau, followed by dancing
in which a large company joined until a
tm from llinttlehoro Klondike!.
A letter received by Luke Ferrlter from
his sou Joseph was dated at Lake Tagish,
Alaska, May S. Young Ferritcr says that
ho and his companions are over the worst

and that they will float down the river
through Miles's canon and White Horse
rapids to Dawson City.
Ferrlter says ho has not had a day's Ill
ness in spite of his hardships, and that
George Wilson and Hugh Adams, who are
with him, are also well. Tho Brattleboro
prospectors have already made a deal on
some mines at Dawson. They are extreme
ly hopeful and believe that they will return
Mrs. II. M. Adams has also received a
letter from her husband dated at Lake
Tagish May 0. He says the party have
their boats completed and are waiting for
the ice to go out of the river. He was
writing tho letter at 0 o'clock in tho even
ing, and one could see to read without a
light at 10 o'clock. The weather has been
fine. The men get but little news. Pa
pers are brought In only occasionally, and
are sold at 25 to 50 cents each. No letters
from Brattleboro have reached the party.

John Tnfl'a Mill nml Other IlulltlliiRS
ItiirneilM West IMimnierstoii.
Fire was discovered In tho steam saw
mill of John Taft in West Dummerston
about 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon by
an employe of the place, and although
everything possible was done to check the
flames, the mill, jelly factory, barn and one
house were destroyed beforo the lire could
be gotten under control.
The mill was a large two-story structure
with jelly works and boiler house attached,
the tipper lloor being used by Mr. Taft as
a dance hall.
The fire evidently started from an over
heated journal In the lower part of tho
building. It had gained but littlo headway
when first discovered, but on account of
the lack of appliances for fighting it gain
The flames soon brought the mill to the
ground and spread to the barn, which stood
but a short distance away. By that time a
large crowd of people, including 30 or 40
men from the granite quarries, were at
work trying to check the fire, but the most
they could do was to remove the furniture
and other articles from the house and barn.
Those two buildings were destroyed lu a
short time, and It was only after a hard
fight that Mr. Taft's other house was saved.
This was done by covering it with wet
blankets, and by the use of several fire ex
tinguishers which were brought from Brat
tleboro by C. C. Turner, John Galvln, C,
H. Thompson and N. T. Ryan.
The total property loss will amount to
nearly $5000. Several thousand feet of
lumber owned by C. H. Thompson were
destroyed, besides a large quantity of lum
ber owned by Mr. Taft. There was no
Insurance on the mill, but the houses and
their contents were Insured through C. F
R. Jenne in the Vermont Mutual Fire In
surance company. Mr. Thompson's lum
ber was also Insured.
Mr. and Mrs. Taft were away when the
fire was discovered and they did not re
turn until the buildings were totally de
stroyed. BREWERY WILL BE CLOSED.
limitless nt the Island KstablUhment
Closes this Week.
From Tuesday's Dally.
The brewery on the islaud will be closed
this week. J. A. Taylor, who owns the
land on which the building is located, has
notified the proprietors of the brewery to
slop selling when the stock of wet goods
on hand has been exhausted. It is re
ported that the bailiffs intended to have
another raid made on the island premises
this week, but it is probable that the bttsl
ness will now be closed out as quietly as
possible, without molestation. Mr. Ellis
the owner of the building, will probably
move the structure from its present site,
F. C. Gale, who has been associated with
Mr. Ellis, is plauning to erect a hotel on
the land which he owns north of the Little
river bridee. between the river and the
The Bean saloon, where, aecordini: to
general report is a place where customers
ate served who cannot set drink at the
island on account of their reputation, has
not been closed. Tho efforts of the au
thorlties will undoubtedly be directed
against this place.
The brewery closed Wednesday night
It thus appears that the work of the board
of bailiffs last year was not in vain, and
that the fight for their re-election was not
made In vain.
A BASE BALL TEAM.
Our .liny lie OrRnulirit In Himtlrboro by
F. C. Cnlr.
Fred C. Gale is looking over the groun
witli the intention of formins a base ball
team in Brattleboro. Good players can
be engaged for about one-half the sum re
quired in the days when Biattleboro
boasted of the "championship of Vermont
and the Connecticut valley." There are
several good teams which would make
lively opponents for a Brattleboro aggre
gation. At Hinsdale Manager Atnidon has got
together a very strong semi-professional
team. Millers Falls is in the field again
with an aggregation headed by the old
timers, Hamilton anil Berard. Athol and
Orange support the Central Park team.
Holyoke, Northampton, Easthampton and
other "down country" towns have clubs
which could come to Brattleboro in the af
ternoon, play a game and return home on
the new 7:15 train the same evening. In
former years these clubs have been obliged
to remain In Brattleboro over night, thus
increasing the expenso very largely.
James Collopy. the old-time favorite,
who began his professional career In Brat
tleboro and who has played In nearly
every league in the country, is auxious to
come here again. Greenfield has proved a
poor base ball town as In other years, and
the team which Collopy has been manag
ing there has disbanded,
If a team is formed it will beg'n playing
about July 1, In order to get the benefit of
the July 4th games, and the local season
will last about six weeks.

An anxious inquirer wants to know if
we are not going to have our streets sprin

If the present atmospherical conditions ex

cart has been converted into a buttermilk
tank with the sprinking annex removed.
It is understood that E. E. Stockwell
had made an offer to sprinkle the streets
but nothing has been done about raisin
money for that purpose.
