Russell Sparks, formerly of Westerly,
who enlisted in Battery , Tenth Con
necticut, at Bridgeport and subse
quently encamped at Xiantic, is now at
Boxford. where the battery is a part of
the 103d regiment, training for service
i broad. He writes that Battery F has
been increased to fuU strength bv the

Radolfo Yanello, now serving a term
of three years on three counts for lar
ceny, prevaricated in regard to the
disposition of stolen white lead. He
said he used one keg in painting a
cottage at Pleasant View. He took
the contract, but did not do the work.
Instead of using the white lead on the
cottage, he stele green paint that was
to be used on the trimmings. Police
Chief Brown has found an owner for
the stolen extension ladder. The police
believe that Yanello committed manv
unreported thefts in this vicinity and
realized enough from the sale of stolen
goods so that he made a liing without
any legitimate work.
There is a man of good family con
nections. Louis Peabody. who is liable
to do almost anything that Is not on
the level when under the influence of
strong drink. He has been arrested
m Westerly several times for being
intoxicated, and was once arrested in
Mystic for the more serious crime of
I'Ui-giary. Now he is held on the
charge of larceny for trial in the Third
district court at Westerly.
Wednesday, Peabody was engaged in
cutting grass on the A. B. Collins es
tate in Pleasant street, and became
intoxicated. He opened the door, with
a key of his cwn, to the workshop of
Louis Collins, located on the prem
ises. and then went away. Soon after
it was learned that Peabody had taken
a box containing a dozen new augur
bits, a hand drill, carpenters hatchet,
a spiril level, a rule. screw-driver
and two snippers, and also a lee!.
All the goods, except the level, were
recovered Tuesday night, and Pea
body was arrested Wednesday morn
ing. He declared he was drunk and
did not remember taking the articles
that were traced directly to him. Po
lice Chief Brown is endeavoring to lo
cate the missing level, valued at $6.
before the arraignment of Peabody cn
the charge of larceny. Peabodv has a
wife and several children, depending
upon him for support.
While many are claiming exemption
from military service, by reason of de
pendency, and in many cases with jus
tification, one Westerly man. foreign
born, a Scotchman, with wife and
three children, left here on Wednesday
for Canada, having enlisted in the
McLean regiment of the Canadian
Highlanders. He is William Clachrie,
a painter and a member of Clan Les
lie. He is very well known and es
pecially among the Scotch residents,
that frequently listened to him play
ing Scotch airs on the bagpipes. A
number of friends were at the rail-
) way station to wish him good luck
ana saie return.
