here and In adjoining towns before Mr.

The Boston Transcript In speaking of
the entry of King Crow at the Boston
horse show says: "He took two first prizes
in the St. Louis show last November, two
firsts at Cleveland, and two firsts and a
second at the last New York show. It
may well be believed that such constant
winning in such fast company betokens a
type of horse where power, courage and
beauty find the highest expression yet at

search for the best has gone on for genera

Tho arrival of St. Patrick's day, March
17. found the Brattleboro sons and daugh
ters of Erin fully prepared to commemo
rate, as they have done many times before,
tho kindly saint who evangelized the peo
ple of Ireland and to celebrate the distin
guished services rendered by Irishmen and
their descendants In public and private
life. St. Patrick brought to the Emerald
Islo a Christian civilization which has
been transmitted from generation to gen
eration for 14 centuries and which has
been of great luiluence In moulding the
character of the Irish people. Hence, it
Is entirely fitting for those who have re
ceived the benellls of this heritage to set
apart one day each year in which to sing
the praises of the saviour of their father
land. The Irish-American residents of Brattle
boro did not attempt an elaborate display
of decorations at their celebration last Fri
day night; tho end which they had In view
was rather to have a good time, and that
object was attained in full measure. The
celebration was held in Festival hall and
was attended by about 400 wearers of the
The children who were present in largo
numbers had their innings during tho
first hour. Tho older people then took
possession of the lloor and danced until 12
o'clock to music rendered by the Philhar
monic orchestra, A. H. Hlnes, prompter.
From 50 to 00 couples joined In the dance.
During the evening refreshments of Ice
cream, cake and coiTee were served by
Mrs. T. A. Murphy, Mis. Daniel Shea,
Mrs. Timothy Aher and Miss Nora Grady.
Tho prize table was in charge of Mrs. E.
R. Lynch, Miss Mary Corbett, Miss Katli
crlno Corbett, Miss Mary Martin and Miss
Johanna Baker. Fancy and iwnful articles
of home manufacture were sold from a
table at which Miss Mary Sullivan aud
Miss Nora Grady presided.
One of the leading features of the cele
bration was the drawing of prizes. Some
of the principal prizes and the winners
were as follows: Ten dollars in gold, Pat
rick Gulhcen, sr. ; easy chair, given by the
Catholic Order of Foresters. Patrick Ma-
guire; bedquilt, Mrs. Timothy Aher; din
ner set, airs. juarun Austin, sr.; large,
handsome doll, Mollle Ryan; parlor clock,

The StOrV of tho Pflrplinrnn .toll!,,,,

has been exploited often, suits arising in
several towns of Vermont and western
Massachusetts, where horses worth prob

attempt was made to work the scheme In
