The house on Pine street, Seymour, occupied by John Miller and his wife, an aged couple, reputed to be quite wealthy, was entered by burglars some time Monday. The thieves had evident ly knowledge that the couple had mon ey in the house, for they went to the bureau In a sitting room where the money and valuables were and took $300 in gold, $292.50 in paper money four watches, one of them a gold one, and about $100 worth of other Jewelry, There was nothing but the bureau disturbed. Mr. Miller, who sleeps in an adjoining room, Is very deaf and heard no one. His wife heard something and called out but supposed It was a man named Jacob Sunheim, who, with his wife, lives with the couple. Mrs. Sun heim heard nothing. The robbery was discovered when her husband returned home from a German lodge meeting at midnight. The alarm was given and Constable Adams notified the police of surround ing towns and cities. A man was seen taking a trolley car about 11 o'clock with a bundle, who was a stranger, but he was not molested and -is now believ ed to have been the burglar or one of them. The buglars entered by breakiing open a rear window and it is thought they had been watching the house for some time and selected a time for the rob bery when they knew Mr. Sunheim was away. Boston, July 2 The Washington cor respondent of the Boston Transcript gives some Interesting Information of the earlier views of Secretary of War Taft. He says that when the class of which William Howard Taft was a member graduated at Yale In 1873 there was a serious doubt in the minds of his classmates as to whether they had not come to manhood at a time when their active lives would cover a period much less interesting and offer ing much less oportunity for Individ ual distinction and success than the thirty years preceding. Doubtless there Is such a doubt in the minds of many college graduates who, at this time of the year, are starting out from the sheltering arm of their Alma Mater to their field, of work the world. To these It will be encouraging to know that one member of the class of '78 at Yale has lived to see the error of his belief that with the passing of the Civ il war and 'its resultant period of ac tivity, "everything would then come down to a dead level of life, and that a humdrum existence with small re sults would be the fate" of those who graduated a generation ago. 1 In discussing this possible view the other day with some college graduates Secretary Taft pointed out how far wrong he and his classmates were In their sizing up of the period ahead of them.' "As we look now," he said, "upon the generation which has pass ed, we see far greater progress than any tha had taken place in the pre vious generation. Indeed, the last de cade has been one of such territorial and national expansion that no one In his wildest imagination could have anticipated it uhen my classmates and were looking out eagerly to know how the world would treat us, and whether we could Justify by our works, the trouble that had been taken to give us a collegiate education." It was because he remembered the un necessary dlcouragement at the seem ingly uninteresting period ahead of them that Secretary Taft took occa sion not long ago to: call the attention of a group of college graduates to the generation which lies before, and to point out the professional and busi ness opportunities that will be open to them as individuals. Secretary Taft believes that It is impossible .to expect that the enorm ous growth in trade will continue in the proportion in which it has expand ed daring the last ten ywr-ut- be lieve," he said, "it is reasonable to suppose that within the next decade there will be some reaction, some fin ancial stringency, perhaps a financial panic, but I believe the progress that has been made is real and substantial. There may be a halt; there may be a scaling of values, these we have had from time to time, followed by a re covery which indicated only a mom entary lapse. It is true that the condi tions of business have changed very materially and that the combination of instrumentalities for the reduction in the cost of producing and selling things has never been equalled in the history of the world, and the opportun ity for individual, Independent effort In business does not seem so great now as it was formerly, still the statistics show a vast number of mercantile and manufacturing firms, Independent of combinations, Indicating that we are not all one trust and that there is still room for individual effort. The great desideratum In all business, In all en terprises; large or small is the men who carry thrm to success." It is the conviction of this man, who has had much to do in handling men, that "successful business, whether governmental or private, whether small or 'large, depends chiefly on the selection of the men by whom this business is to be done, and that the promotion which men secure is not that which comes by favor, but by the logic of the circumstances and for the benefit of the employers: that there is to-day as much room for fit men as there ever was and that the kind of success that Comes from intel ligent fidelity and industry in the cause to which a man devotes himself, and the work which he does, speaks far louder in the demand for his pro motion than all the good will of his employer or the influence that kind friends may seek .to bring to bear in his behalf. paper ought to be; and while the edi tor occupies the j.osition of an instruc tor of public taste, and ought to ex ercise the function as such with more constancy and courage than he usual ly does, the limitations that there are upon him by reason of the public de mand those of us who would criticise the press know little of. "Certainly Journalism Is a profession in which men of disprlmlnating intel ligence, of high courage, of accurate Judgment, of a love of truth and real patriotism, can find a sphere of useful ness not excelled in any ot,her; and if the standards of truth, of taste, of re finement and of moral tons set by some of the most successful of the newspa pers shall not Improve in the next gen et ation it will vindicate pessimists of to-day. In the change which has taken place in the influence of the editorial writer and the increased importance in the statement of news, the influence of th oollege-bred Journalist must contin ue to be of the greatest weight. It needs a trained mlndt a Judicial tem perament, quick perceptions and a high standard of integrity and self-respect, together with a nice and graphic liter ary touch, to make the leading special correspondence of the paper, which is in many respects one of its most Influ ential parts, what It should. It is a field well worth the ambition of any man to succeed in. It has many temp tations. It has rewards which may be permanent ana sonu, or, as mc uune- p.indent yields to the temptations, may be meretricious and temporary." MILFORD NEWS Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gill of Walnut Beach are receiving congratulations over the arrival of a son.

Henry La combe of New York, senior circuit court Judge for this circuit, assignea Judge Martin for duty here to re main until Judge Piatt recovers his full vigor. Judge Martin is well known in Ver mont. He has served several towns in the legislature of that state and before being appointed a Judge of I the United States, district court he had served as United States district attorney for the district of Vermont. Judge Martin's public career began with his election to the Vermont legislature as representative from Londonderry in 1871 in which body he served on the committee on edu cation, having charge of the bill to abolish the board of education and for the appointment of a state super intendent. Two years later he was again returned to the legislature, serving as chairman of the commit tee on elections and as a member of the Judiciary committee. In 1878 ho was for a third time elected to the some position, and was chosen speaker of the house on the second ballot. He was elected to the house in 1880 and 1882, and at both of the last named sessions was again chosen speaker. In 1892 he represented Brattleboro, and declined being a candidate for speaker. He was chnlr- man of the Judiciary committee and second on the ways and means com mittee.
