OUR PENNANT WINNERS.
The gonfalon Is ours.
Brattleboro won the championship of
tho Twin Stato baseball league Labor
day In a strugglo which was not settled
until tho last man was out In the last
Inning of the last game, so close was
tho finish bctweerl Brattleboro and
The ending was extremely dramatic,
nearly 3500 people probably tho largest
crowd that ever witnessed a ball game
In Vermont witnessing virtually n per
fect game, full of the thrills and uncer
tainties which makes baseball tho great
est popular sport In America, but finally
ending, to tho home contingent at least,
more satisfactorily than tho novel which
tells us that "they lived happily forever
It was tho game of a lifetime.
Brattleboro people have been furnished
a season of high-grade, clean, wholc-s-omo
sport In nn attractive environment.
Tho young men who started tho move
ment for organized baseball nre entitled
to great credit so nre the managers of
Island park, who provided a place for
the jramcs which for attractiveness can
not be excelled In the country.
Brattleboro was strong In pitchers, ex
cept In the first of tho season, but many
of the players In other positions did not
meet expectations, especially during the
early weeks of the struggle. There were
many disappointments, nnd as every fol
lower of baseball has his own opinion of
how tho gamo should be played, there
was a plethora, of criticism and knock
ing at different times. But that Is all a
memory which Is fading away now In
tho satisfaction which comes from lift
ing tho flag. It Is a time for rejoicing
Brattleboro and Keeno led tho race for
tho reason that these two teams were
better managed than the other two. In
Individual players Bellows Falls and
Springfield were fully as strong as the
leaders. President Rice nnd Manager
Brcckcnrldgo of the local association
pulled together throunhout the season
and to them great praise Is due for tho
successful termination of the season's
struggle. Brcckenrldgo was In absolute
control of tho team, and deserves credit
for producing a championship team,
within the small salary limit, and In the
face of many trying obstacles.
As the season progressed all of the
league clubs were strengthened and
many shifts were made In tho various
line-ups. Horan and McLeod are the
only players who were with tho team
from start to finish
They havo given
tho club effective service and havo won
friends on every side. Wachtcl, with
but two defeats In nine games pitched,
undoubtedly leads the league as a reg
ular pitcher In tbe percentage of win
nings, and Jnckson pitched moro score
less Innings and scoreless games than
any other twlrler. Bosk, who was with
tho club the last two weeks, was a fac
tor In the result through winning two
hard games out of the last four played.
Brattleboro not only won tho pennant
but drew larger crowds than any other
team, and from a financial standpoint
tho season hero was successful, although
tho balance sheet has not been drawn
Tho league has run Us first year's
course without arousing any bitter an
tagonisms and it Is probable that nil
four clubs will be ready to battle for
another flag next year.
Hero's to tho pennant winners of 1911!
And hero's nnother to the Twin State
longuo In 19121 Long may It live!
The statement In an editorial In tho
Boston Herald that Senator Morrill of
Vermont wns kept In the United State3
Sonato for years after ho ceased to be of
real effectiveness Is refuted by The Pro
tectionist, which says that "up to the
tlmo of his fatal Illness Mr. Morrill had
nover coased to be effective; and not
withstanding his advanced ngo ho per
formed with great punctuality all his
Tho reciprocity agreement is by no
means certain of ratification in Canada,
although Premier Laurlcr Is leading tho
fight In Its behalf and is making ad
dresses In many cities nnd largo towns.
Sir William McKenzle, president of tho
Canadian Northern railroad, thinks the
outcome Is problematical. He says;
"Tho Idea of annexation has become so
strongly attached to tho treaty proposed
that Its defeat Is highly probable."
Some men don't seem to realize tho
dlfferenco between the simple llfo and
tho silly life.
THE RENEWAL A STRAIN.
Vacation Is over. Agnln tho school
bell rings nt morning and at noon, again
with tens of thousands the hardest kind
of work has begun, the ronewal of which
Is a mental and physical strain to all ex
cept tho most rugged. Tho little girl that
a few days ngo had roses In her cheeks,
and tho little boy whose lips wero then
so red you would hnvo Insisted thnt they
had beon "kissed by strawberries," havo
already lost something ot the nppear.mco
of health. Now Is n tlmo when many
children should bo given n tonic, which
may avert much serious trouble, and wo
know of no other so highly to he recom
mended as Hood's v SarsaparlUa. which
strengthens tho nerves, perfects dlgostlon
nnd assimilation, and aids mental devel
opment by building up the wholo system.
AN EFFICIENT NEW REMEDY.
Tho results of Inoculation as a prev
entive of typhoid fever have been so
bcneflclnl that, in tho opinion of medical
experts, It Is only a question of time
when nntl -typhoid vaccine will prove to
be ono of the most efficacious remedies
known to medical science. Dr. Henry D.
Holton of Brattleboro, secretary of the
Btato board of health, believes that Its
use will become ns general and as effec
tive as has the use of the antl-smnllpox
vaccine. MnJ, Gen. Leonard Wood has
become so thoroughly convinced of the
value of this new remedy that ho hns
Issued an order making It compulsory for
every officer nnd private In tho army to
subject himself to tratcmcnt with nntl
typhold vaccine. At the recent four
months' camp of tho regulars at San
Antonio there were nearly 13,000 men,
and the medical records show only one
typhoid ense and no deaths from that
disease. The one case was that of a
soldier who had not been wholly Im
munized by tho new method.
Inoculation to prevent typhoid fever
never has been attempted In Vermont,
but there Is no question but that the
practice will be adopted, in due time, by
the medical profession In the state, and
possibly It will be required by legislative
action. Meanwhile the state well may
congratulate Itself upon the Invaluable
service of Its board of health. In the
six years previous to the establishment
of tho stato board of health thero were
COS deaths from typhoid fever In Vermont.
For the last six years tho number was
351, a reduction of about 50 per cent. In
tho years from 1903 to 190D, Inclusive,
tho death rate In Vermont from this
disease averaged 17 for each 100,000 of
One of the most Interesting nnd stren
uous campaigns that New England has
ever known, a campaign that Is attract
ing attention from coast to coast, will
termlnato on September 11 when tho
voters of Maine will give In their ballots
to determine whether the policy of con
stitutional prohibition of tho liquor
traffic, which has prevailed more than a
quarter of a century shall bo retained.
For weeks past the state has been flood
ed with literature sent out by both tho
proponents and opponents of the move
to take prohibition out of tho constitu
tion, while hundreds of speakers have
voiced their sentiment at public gather
ings. The value of a good hotel to a country
town Is again emphasized In the an
nouncement that tho National Associa
tion of Cotton Manufacturers will hold
Its 01st annual convention at Hotel
Equinox in Manchester Sept. 27-29. On
the opening day the president. Franklin
W. Hobbs, will deliver an address, and
the distinguished visitors will be welcom
ed by Gov. Mead. It is expected that
James Wilson, secretary of agriculture;
Henry C. Emery, chairman of tho tariff
board; George W. Neville, president of
the New York Cotton exchange, and Con
gressman John W. Weeks of Massachu
setts will address tho delegates during
some of the sessions.
Tho conference of tho governors of tho
states of tho Union, which was Inaugu

editor that the people of his town could
get Just ns good trades In tea or coffee
or other groceries at home as from mall

that editor's paper and could not find a

MRS. GEORGE A. EELS.
Death from Dilatation of the Heart Came
Suddenly In Her New Home on Linden
Street Sunday Morning.
The many friends of Mrs. Jennie (Ab
bott) Eels, 53, were shocked and sad
dened Sunday to learn of her suddom
death about 10 o'clock that morning in.
her home at the corner of Linden street.
and Park place. Death was caused by
dilatation of the heart. Mrs. Eels had
not been strong for some time, but sho
took part In social affairs and on Satur
day afternoon attended a ball game at
Island park and In tho evening saw a
theatrical performance In the Audito
rium. She had been able to take fre
quent trips by automobile, In which sho
foimd much pleasure, and recently went
on a trip to Boston. For many years
Mrs. Eels lived on Canal street, but a.
few months ago Mr. and Mrs. Eela
moved to their beautiful new home,
bought- of the estate of the late Mrs.
Annie G. Cobb, where they anticipated
years of comfort and happiness.
Mrs. Eels was born In- Putney Jan. 2-4,
1S58, and was a daughter of the late Da
vid A. and Jane (Phlppen) Abbott. Sho
came to Brattleboro with her parents
when she was about eight years old and
had been a resident of the town ever
since. Thirty-four years ago she waa
married to Georgo A. Eels, who has been
successful In the bottling business for
merly carried on by C. II. Eddy & Co.
She was a member of the First Baptist
church, tho Brattleboro Woman's club
