" PUTNAM The police were actively , interested Wednesday in "William Kempf", now at Brooklyn jail awaiting trial at the Jan uary term of the superior court after pleading guilty to stealing articles from automobiles in this city.. Captain Remi Delage. was satisfied Wednesday that William Kempf would serve as well as any other name for a person who finds himself in the predicament of the prison er. In Danielson the prisoner was known to his erstwhile friends as Kelley. His real name may be Kloposkl or Delemeir. In any event, it has been ascertained that he speaks French. Local police will interview him at the jail In the near ' future relative to cer tain important matters on which it is believed he is able to shed some light Kempf has established ; that he is a slip pery proposition. He has loitered about Putnam, off and on, for more than -a year, and the police say they cannot establish that he has had any real oc cupation or legitimate source of revenue. Tet he has been well dressed and has made himself companionable to those with whom he has associated. And all of these friends are (surprised that he has confessed himself a thief and is await ing the punishment that : will be meted out to him when court comes in in Jan uary. .

Sumner. s3ft: Safe J'yL3, f Milk UAZ- r4 Much has been made recently of the fact that the Babcock cornet band of Ashford recently observed the 60th an niversary of, its organization. It is no reflection on this musical organization to set forth that thousands of AVindham county people never heard of its exist ence until this anniversary comment started, though the organization was engaged in entertaining people when Sousa was in swaddling clothes, if' born at all, and Creatore and Gilmorc and all that galaxy of bandmasters were in the kindergarten. The band, it appears, owes its exist ence to Archibald Babcock, who provided in his will that certain portions of his earthly goods be devoted to establishing a public library in Ashford and for the maintenance of a band of music. A trust fund was created by him for the purposes mentioned. Babcock was one of the famous 49'ers. who made their way across the country or around the horn to seek quick riches in California's golden fields and upon his return he seemed to have been successful. His death occurred about ten year3 after his venture into the west' and the trust fund he set aside for the purposes mentioned amounted to $6,000, the in come of which was to be equally divided between the support of the public li brary and the band. Like the library, the band has endured and today is rated the oldest independent band in these United States independent being used to distinguish this musical organization from any band that is in the military service of the United States or is maintained under civic or municip al auspices. Interesting tales are told of the period during which the band was in the form ative period. It appears that about ev eryone in Ashford who could buy, bor row or otherwise legitimately acquire a horn annexed themselves, , thereto and joined the band. Old . singing books served for which some,, according, to a historian, could 'read" and other could not. But this mattered little. Those who could, read music; those who could not played by "ear" ; those who could do neither played just the same. All were determined that the income from the Babcock trust fund should not go to waste and to date it never has ! It is related that dogs crawled under barns and screech owls shrieked out in terror In those early days when the ; Babcock band was getting into trim, but little attention need be paid to these stories. It may suffice to record that the band has endured and has given joy to the residents 'in the far oft corner of the county for more than half a, century and is still going strong. Musicians will be interested in the fact that some ef the horns in use by the band at the present time were pur chased soon after its organization. Edmund Gagne of the post office, is announced as the winner of the Govern or's club at the Putnam Country club, he having defeated Armand Lizotte.
