We sometimes think that the dry goods storekeeper gets more than his share of the world's misfortunes. Perhaps he does and perhaps he does not. We are not given to worry or solicitude, and it's only a passing thought. But this time
the reason for the "passing thought" is really causing us some anxiety. Xmas is only a few weeks off ; we ordered goods sumptuously for that occasion, and we haven't the room we expected to have for their display. You see, this delightfully
.warm weather hasn't tended to hurry sales any, but has acted to the contrary. So we've decided to "buck" against the weather ; to make people buy their winter things whether the thermometer guarantees it or not. IN SHORT WE ARE
GOING TO HAVE A SALE A RECORD BREAKING SELLING EVENT in which the seasonableness of the merchandise, timeliness of the offerings and lowncss of the prices, will, hand in hand, make this the most wonderful week in our
history. Naturally we will extend these economies to every stock. It's a general stock-reducing, room-making sale, and we are going to stop at nothing during the next week to make it do the business. Read this list ; study the prices.
Aren't such bargains worth coming for? You know they are, and when you come you will be sure of the fact and mighty glad you came. SALE BEGINS SATURDAY AND LASTS ALL WEEK.
Relics of Last Year's Garment Assem
blage, But an Innovation in
Because Uiese garments are last year's, don't toss your head disdainfully and pass
this item by, for there is better in it than you can imagine. For instance, we offer at the
littlest of prices, Coats that were left from last winter's stock. We could have closed
these out last spring, but we foresaw that they would not be radically different from this
winter's styles ; and true enough, they were not.
But because they are last year's coats (and if we didn't tell you, you would question
their being so), we, of course, have priced thtm accordingly. You can get a coat for every
day wear at a price almost too small to mention less than half, less than a third of the
real value of the garment. Included in this same class are a number of Suits, and Misses'
and Children's Coats, excelent coats for school. You'll find these priced to teaturiie this
sale as the wonderful saving event it is.
Remember, you're not to toss your head in disdain, but investigate this offer-surprise

BRATTLEBORO'S NEW WATER SUPPLY
Abundance of Pure Water Adequate for All Domestic, Fire
Elevator and Light Manufacturing Purposes
PLEASANT VALLEY RESERVOIR
Crosby & Parker Who Have Contracted to Build the New Pipe
Line, Already Have 50 Men at Work
Brattleboro Is again to bo congratulated.
The new water supply of the Chest
nut Hill Reservoir Company, exclu
sive announcement of which appeared ln
The Phoenix last week, will provldo not
only an abundant supply of pure water
Hufllclcnt for all the needs of a population
several times larger than that of the
present day, but for far better tiro pro
tection than at present and power for
elevators, water motors for small manu
facturing and for any other purposes de
sired. Practically a new system will be con
structed and tho present reservoir will
be used as an auxiliary supply. Tho
plans contemplate tho use of the water
of Stlckney brook, which is the outlet of
Marlboro North pond. A dam will bo
constructed on the brook 2 miles below
the pond and about a mtlo above the S.
W. Estoy farm. A 12-Inch pipe will bo
laid from thero around the bend of tho
hill to the Oliver II. Carpenter farm, a
distance of about 9500 feet, and from
thcro tho water will run ln the bed of the
brook about IK mile to a large reservoir
which will bo constructed on the Atkin
son farm In "Pleasant Valley."
This route is ono of three surveyed
severeal years ago by C. T. Wolcott of
Greenfield, Mass., for tho Chestnut Hill
Reservoir Co., with the view of adding
tho water from Stlckney brook to tho
present system, and during this time tho
necessary rights have been secured from
the property owners along tho line.
Tho dam of the reservoir Will bo about
400 feet ln length, 20 feet high In places,
nnd will provide a storage capacity of
80,000,000 gallons. From this reservoir
a 16-Inch pipe will be run down the val
ley to connect near Samuel Sargent's
farm with tho pipes now in use by the
water company. In order to provide
for this winter's supply of water for the
village without recourse to the pumping
station, pipes will bo laid at once from
a point near Mr. Sargent's to the proposed
site of tho reservoir In "Pleasant Valley,"
where a temporary catch basin will be
built. The contract for the construction
of this line, as -well as the one from the
reservoir to-Stlckney brook, has been let
to H. O. Crosby of Brattleboro and Car
roll 55. Parker of Fitchburg, who are now
completing a similar, but more extensive,
work In Wllllamstown, Mass.
Messrs. Crosby and Parker have already
begun. operations. About St Italians will

week and the work of digging the trench
from Mr. Sargent's to the reservoir site has
been begun. Some of the 16-Inch pipe has
already been shipped from Philadelphia
and It Is expected that the first con
signment will bo ln Brattleboro avallablo
for use during next week. The contrac
tors will push the work as rapidly as
possible and will have the line ln use to
"Pleasant Valley" before cold weather
puts a stop to outdoor work. If the con
ditions are favorable It Is hoped that the
entire line will bo built to Stlckney brook
this year. Tho big dam will be built and
the remainder of the work completed on
a separate contract later.
The distance from Mr. Sargent's In
West Brattleboro to tho Atkinson farm,
where the reservoir will be built, Is about
The plans contemplate eventually a
great enlargement and extension of the
present Chestnut Hill Reservoir pipe lino
from West Brattleboro to and throughout
this vtllago. Tho present pipe will bo used
this year, but in tho near future a 16

The Importance to tho village In In
creased protection from fire can hardly
be overestimated. The new reservoir will
be from 140 to 150, higher than the
present reservoir and will provide a pres
sure of about 60 pounds more per Inch
than at present In the village districts.
The higher sections of the village, where
the pressure Is now low, will then havo
excellent protection. It will be entirely
feasible when the improvements are com
pleted to Increase the number of hy
drants throughout the village. In sec
tions where new water works are being
laid out hydrants in even the suburban
districts are put ln at a distance not
exceeding 600 feet apart. The building
of this extension is regarded as the
only practicable solution of Brattleboro's
water problem. Any new system would
involvo an expense that would be a
serious burden to the village.

leading. In taking water from Marlboro
South pond It would be necessary to pay
water rights to mill owners all tho way
from Marlboro to Greenfield and tho cost
on this account alone would be at least
$60,000, while tho expense of laying the
pipe from tho pond to the village would
bring the total figure Into the hundreds of
thousands, especially If n new system
had to be built throughout the village.
The supply direct from Marlboro North
pond would bo wholly Inadequate. Ex
cept ln early spring little wnter flows out
of the pond, while nt tho point on Stlckney
brook whero tho smnll reservoir will bo
built more than enough water Is now flow
ing to fill a 12-Inch main. The Increase be
tween the pond nnd the alto of the small
reservoir comes from a number of small
streams and from springs which dis
charge their waters Into Stlckney brook.
Tho Chestnut Hill Reservoir company
lias the right to raise Marlboro North
pond four feet nbovo Its present level
and use the amount of water contained
In stgorae there; It Is not thought probable
that this will ever bo necessary, but by
building a dam four feet high at the
pond an extra reserve over 125,000,
000 gallons could bo secured for any
unexpected call such as tho development
of, Brattleboro Into a large manufactur
ing city through the erection of the Con
necticut river dam. If the water should
bo taken directly from the pond It would
be necessary to provldo for tho sewerage
around the pond from the cottages used
by summer residents. The wnter natural
ly purifies Itself in flowing down Stlck
ney brook, but In order to remove all
possible sources of contamination a sewer
will probably be built around tho shores
of the pond next spring.
The purity of the water, as shown by
several analyses, will bo beyond all ques
tion. Tho following Is from n report from
the Vermont state board of health:
To tho Committee on Water Supply for
In reply to your request that we give
you a synopsis of our report of Oct. 9th.
1905, we have to siy that the wnter of
Sunset lake Is at this time (October) a
safe, acceptable water for- domestic use.
If this water la to bo used for domestic
purposes It must bo carefully guarded from
pollution from any cause.
Stlckney brook water above the pro
posed dam Is apparently a safe water:
there Is, however, danger that some of
the small streams which enter it on the
north sldo may become contaminated and
thus polluto the main stream; hence,
theso small streams should be procured
from such contamination. You should
secure samples from these small streams
"Pleasant valley" brook shows signs
of pollution, probably from the Carpenter
farm; this wnter should be In some way
freed from pollution, which Is undoubted
ly caused by the drainage from the farm
The expense of removing all sources
of contamination of these waters and
thus securing a pure water supply for all
tlmo would be comparatively small. For
more detailed information see our report
of Oct. 9th.
