The increase in the number of houses
In Brattleboro and the constantly no
ticeable shortage of tenements is a re
minder that the population of the town
is growing. When the listers completed
the tax Inventories the past summer
there were 2222 poll tax payers on the
grand list. Since then practically 30
names have been added, making a total
of 2250. It Is generally estimated that
the population of a town Is four times
the number on tho poll tax list. This
rule would make Brattleboro's popula
tion nOOO, Probably thp number will
fall a little short of that figure, but It Is
believed there are at least S500 resi
dents here. The government census
figures published In October, 1910, gave
Brattleboro's population as 7541.
Not much time has been spent In the
actual trying of cases In county court
this week, but a good number of cases
have been disposed of. As there were
no cases ready for trial Wednesday
court took a recess to next Monday af
ternoon and the Jurymen were excused
until Tuesday morning. After being out,
20 hours the Jury In the case of tho
Cook Lumber company of Greenfield
against John M. Moore of South New
fane, which was an action alleging de
celt In the sale of land, rendered a ver
dict for the plaintiff to recover 500. T)e
case of E. A. Temple & Co. of Whlt
Ingham against Charles Beaudry of
North Heath, Mass., to recover on a
promissory note given for the sale pf a
gasoline engine was tried Saturday. The
defendant claimed that the engine was
guaranteed to run, but that It did not.
The Jury found for the defendant to re
cover his costs. A large number of
cases were disposed of the first of the
week, by settlement and otherwise, one
being the South Londonderry dog case
of Ezra Barney against Leonard Garfield,
which was settled. In the case of Hen
ry W. Goddard against William S. Flem
ing, both of this town, the defendant
has admitted liability and tho case will
now come up on the question of dam
ages. Mr, Goddard was Injured by be
ne, run over on Vernon street, Flem
ing s automobile running into his wag
on nnd scaring his horses. In the cases
of Mr. and Mrs. Charles F. Nason
against Ralph Grout, all of Brattle
boro, In which damages are sought on
the allegation that Mr. Grout ran Into
Mrs. Nason and Injured her while riding
his bicycle, Judgment was rendered for
the plaintiff by default, and damages
will be assessed.

Sudden changes of weather are es

more so than to the scrofulous and

during a normal October Is commonly
great. We never think of scrofula Its

thinking of the great good many suffer
ers from It have derived rom Hood's
Sarsaparllla, whose radical and perma

enough to make It the most famous
medicine In the world. There Is prob
ably not a city or town where Hood's
Sarsaparllla has not proved Its merit In
more homes than one, In arresting and
completely eradicating scrofula, which
Is almost as serious and as much to be
feared as Its near relative consumption.

The street railway company Is plan

curve opposite South Main street. The
tracks will be moved nearer the centre
of Canal street and both curves will be
straightened. This will allow a wider
sidewalk In front of The Abbott. The
town also probably iwill change the
street and sidewalk grade In front of
the new building, thereby making an
Improvement and adding to the appear

Recent improvements and the addi

Is a large plate glass clothing cabinet.

The hangers are suspended from a met

rear or the cabinet to ttio rront as de
sired. Farther down the Btore nre sev
eral oxidized metal standards support
ing long rows of hangers on which nre
suspended the overcoats, raincoats and
suits other than blue and black. The In

has enabled the firm to discard the

was piled, except a few for the odd

since Saturday, canvassed practically every
section of the town and offered a combination
subscription to the magazines at from 25 cents
to SI a year. If housewives were not willing
to pay $1 she dropped to a figure that did
appeal, collected the money and gave a re
ceipt without a business heading printed on

side by side she collected 50 cents from one
woman, 75 cents from the second and 1 from
the third. She obtained vveral suhncriptlons
