brother-in-law ot the bride, performing the
ceremony. The wedding was a very quiet
one, the only guests being members of the
bride's family. There were several pretty
presents. Mr. and Mrs. Ingram wil make
their future home at the bride's home in
round hats worn over the face instead c f
rolling back as during the winter are quite
the proper thing. . Then, too, many of the
old fashioned Tuscan straws are again in
fashion. In colors, violets and purples are
more popular than ever, and the new
colors are the Cyrano shades and the dif
ferent tones in yellows. The trimmings
are characterized by large flowers, chiffons
and laces, the Battenberg lace being
favorite. The wings ot birds are also used
a great deal.
A black walking hat in the window was
much admired by toe ladies. J. his is one
ot the newest things,- and is trimmed with
a scarf of Brussels net with chiffon trim-
ing draped around the hat with ends grace
fully hanging over the hair. There are
three large ostrich feathers at the side.
Another typical bat ot the season is a round
Tuscan braid faced with black chip.draped
around the crown with a heavy roll of
ecru lace over black liberty silk. There
is side trimming of jetted wings while
massed in the back are deep crimson roses.

was pronounced very good by the large
audience present. While the work ot the
Glee club cannot be especially commend
ed, the. m r.dolin and guitar club performed
excellently.' Mr. O'Sullivan showed that
he is'master of the violin, notwithstanding
he "was handicapped by a poor accompa
nist, and Mr. Hoskins as impersonator was
a marked favorite with the audience.
The entertainment Monday night was
the first pu')lic appearance of the clubs

now on the spring vacation trip, going
from. here to Ludlow, Rutland, Glens Falls,

Death of Fletcher Carruthers.
Fletcher Carruthers, aged 52, died at
the home of Mrs. H. E. Atherton on Har
ris Place in Brattleboro at 6 20 Monday
evening after a severe sickness oi. a week
or ten days. The cause of bis death was
blood poisoning resulting from an abscess
which lormed in the lower part of the right
lung. It is thought the abscess must have
been some time in forming, although Mr.
Carruthers considered himself in his usual
health until quite recently. 'I &
Mr. Carruthers was born in Cocker-
mouth, England, December 23, 1846, rand
came to this country with his parents when
lour years old. He passed his' yourger
days in Lawrence, Mass., and was married
there 29 years ago last August. ; From the
age of 17 until four years ago he was con
tinuously in the employ of William A
Russell, first at Lawrence, then at Franklin
Falls, and later in Bellows Falls where he
had lived during the last 25 yearsJ'i Four
years ago he leased the Ross White paper
mill in Brattleboro and has since run the
plant as the Sunset paper mill.
The deceased leaves a widow and two
children, a daughter Eleanor,- and a son
Edgar, who will continue the business,
and a brother William, who is postmaster
at Norwich, Conn. He had been promi
nently identified with Immanuel ' church
during his entire residence in Bellows Falls
and was a vestryman ot St. Michael's
church in Brattleboro ; he was also a mem
ber of Beauseant Commandery, Knigh
Templar, in Brattleboro. The - funeral
which will be in charge of the Masonic

Town Meeting: Tomorrow.
The voters of Rockingham are warned
to meet in special town meeting tomorrow
at 10 a. m. to consider the following
To see if the town will vote to instruct
and direct the selectmen to order the cut
ting down and grading of the hill on Pine
and Center streets lying between Burt Place
and West street in the village of Bellows
Falls to the extent of 12 feet at leant at
the highest point ot the same and to there
after fully comply with the provisions of
section 3357, 3358 and 3359 of the Ver
mont statutes of 1894, or any other statute
in relation thereto and provide means
therefor, provided the Bellows Falls and
Saxtons River street railway company will
agree to do said cutting down and grading
free of expense to the town.
As already stated in these columns there
seems to be little reason to doubt that the
desired depth ot cut will be granted pro
vided the electric road company will stand
the cost ; but on the question of land dam
ages there is a wide difference of opinion.
borne ot tnese opinions are printed in an
other column. Some good citizens think
the town should pay all damages ; oth;r
equally good citizens say No ; while yet
others give qualified answers.
The Times believes that the voters of
the town should attend this special town
meeting prepared to hear arguments pro
and con and to act without prejudice and
as good judgment may direct. We are
decidedly ot the opinion, however, that
shou'd the town vote to assist the road in
paying the lapd damages, the amount
should be fixed, or a limit named ; that . is,
so many hundred dollars voted in a lump
sum, or voted that the town pay damages
not to exceed a sum named. We believe
that the assuming of all risk by the town is
poor policy and will establish an injurious
precedent, and as yet we have heard no
good argument why such a vote ought not
to be acceptable to the promoters of the

Opinions of Weil-Known Citizens
The Matter to be Decided To
Monday afternoon the Times sent the
following questions to several ot the citi
zens, tax-payers and voters in Rocking
ham,' for the purpose of ascertaining in
some degree the prevailing sentiment
regarding the matter which is to be brought
before the special town meeting to be held
at 10 a. m. to-morrow :
1. Are yon in favor of cutting Pine street
at least 12 feet at the highent point of the
same, provided the Bellows Falls Saxtons
River Street Railway will pay aU cost as pro
vided for in the call for the special town
meeting to be held Thursday f
2. Do you think the Town of Rockingham
should pay all land damages, provided the
electrio road company stand the expense of
the Catting and grading i
Answers, so tar as received in time for
publication, are given below. -
Those answering yes to both questions
are A. F. Winnewisser, W. A. Truax, C,
H. Shepardaon, and E. A. Norwood
Starks Edaon says No to both questions.
C. W. Butterfield and C. K. Labaree say
Yes to the first question, and No to the
second : and Mr. Butterfield adds, " I
should be in favor of paying the road
$1000 outright, they to pay all land dam'
agesa nd costs of cutting and grading."
B. M. Walker says to No. 1 : " I am ;
it would be a great convenience to the
traveling public. A 12 per cent grade is
too heavy and unsafe in a slippery time ;
should want to see aome estimates of dam
ages before answering your second inter
rogatory." W. H. Bodine to No. 1 : " Am in favor
of cutting the street what is necessary for
building the road." To No. 2: "Yes, if
land damages are not excessive."
F. B. Locke to No. 1: "Yes, if
nothing less will satisfy them." To No. 2 :
" Yes, but not to exceed $500,.. J think
the road would be benefiiaal to both Sax
tons River and Bellows Falls, and hope it
will be built at once."
George U. Babbitt, Jr., to No. 1:
" Yes, sir, as my understanding is this will
effect the least damage to property abut
ters." To No. 2: "I do not. In ex
pTanatioo of my reply to yoar aoennd-yies-tion,
I beg to say that in giving thi use of
the streets to the railway company the
town is, in my opinion, doing all that can
reasonably be asked."
J. C. Day to No. 1, "Yes": To No. 2,
1 don't believe in buying a pig in a bag.
Previous purchases of that sort will haunt
the taxpayers of this town till the end of
time. I would vote for the town to pay a
reasonable share of the expanse with a

Rockingham should give the electric road
sufficient help on Pine street to enable
them to complete their road and put it into
A. II. Brown : ."As the electrio railroad
now have permission to cut Pine street
seven feet it would increase the land
damage but little to go 12 feet. Should
the voters grant the electrio railroad to
cut 12 feet I do not now see any reason
why the town shoull be asked to pay the
land damages." . '
David Savage to No. 1 : "Yes I should
like to see the Lill cut. I want the rail
road to pay all damages and ask no favors
of the town."
C. E. Howard answers "Yes" to both
questions and adds: "The cutting down
of the hill would be a great help to the
C. E. Robertson to No. 1 : "I think a
12 foot cut ought not to be done." To
No. 2 : "No, I think the town better not
get mixed in this matter."
C. L. Barber to JNo. 1. "Yes, 1 am
decidedly ; it will be a great advantage to
the traveling public, especially for heavy
loads. To No. 2 : "Yes I do, as the
land damage will be sir all compared with
the expense of grading. This is the
only matter the railroad company have
asked the town to help them in, and I thii k
we as a town should grant this without one
word against it, as the hill graded as they
propose to do it would be a great and last
ing bei efit for all time to the town and to
the public at large."
A. C.Morre to No.l : "I am not in favor
of cutting Pine street." To No.2:"I am not
in favor of paying any damages whatever.
P. H. Hadley to No. 1 : "A 12-foot cut
would seem to me excessive but I hive net
looked the ground Over with this in mind
To No. 2 : "No, I believe the town ought
not to assume any liability in . this direc
A. A. ilailaday to JNo. l: "I am in
favor of the electric road, believing it to
be a move forward, but it seems to me tha
there might be some route selected that
would not so seriously damage private es
tates as the one r roposed." To No. 2
I am not in favor ot the town paying any
of the land damages."
F. J. Hall to No. 1: "It would make
no differ n ce whether I were or not, tbey
already hav8 the light. If you insert the
word, and d mage, after the word 'cost'
To No. 2 : "No. The principle is wrong,
and the town is badly in debt."
W. B. Glynn: "I am not 'decided as
have not investigated the matter. It took
our able orp of selectnen some time to
reach a decision and I think the average
votet will need to investigate the matter
and should be at the town meeting willing
to hear all sides ot tbe question and then
cast an intelligent ballot for what he e
lives is best. In answer to quetii n 2, 1
will say that I believe that an electric raiL
way connecting Bellows Falls and Sax'ons
River will be of benefit to the town. While
it may injure some tew lines ot business 1
believe it will benefit a larger n ember acd
be conducive to new and progressive en
terprises and I am a thorough believer in
progress and the greatest good to the
greatest number. Therefore while I would
not be in favor of bonding the town to
build the road or paying the road any con
siderable amount ts build it, I am in favor
ot granting them any necessary rights or
privileges that the town can and not do an
injustice to the traveling public and, in an
instance like this, the adjacent land owners.
And if we can secure the building of tha
road by paying the land damages, and such
action will not be used by the road as a
criterion for other instances that may come
op later. I should vote to pay the dam
ages in this case provided the damages are
not much in excess of what I have under
stood they are estimated, via., $100 to
E. C. Fairbank to No.l: "No. The
town should never cause or allow Pine n I
Center streets to be cut to the extent asked
for." To No. 2: "No."
