" David Ilanini." fully the equal of Den
man Thompson, and that is praise

If Lyman Howe's n oving pictures
had never come to Bellows Falls the
entertainments given by the London Bio
scope company in the opera house Mon
day and Tuesday evenings would have
been considtifcd first-class. As it was the
programs goo very good satisfaction.
The audiences, however, were not large.
Some of the scenes were unique, as " A
Trip to tlie 'Moon,"' while others, like
views from the famous Durbar, seen here
before were shown with taking effect.
While driving Sunday J. T. Dodge and
Fred Timothy r were thrown from their
carriage at unurcli s corner and Mr.
Dodge was seriously injured. The horse,
one that Mr. Dodge had purchased in
Keene the day before, was frightened by
the electric cars ami bolted in such a
way that both occupants of the carriage
were thrown to the ground. The horse
then went on at a mad pace and was
captured in Bellows Falls village, neither
horse nor carriage being injured. Mr.
Dodge was injured in the back and side
and suffered a slight hemorrhage from
the stoibac-h. The accident will prob
ably keep him from work for some
time. (
The following regarding a company in
which John W. Flint of this place is in
terested is taken from last week's issue
of The Taper Mill: "The Katahdin
Pulp and Paper company, at Lincoln,
Me., intends to make extensive repairs
and changes at the mills in the near
future. It has had a large knot dryer
built on the roof of the wood room and
intends discontinuing that department in
the pulp mill, removing it to the saw
mill where the chips will be prepared at
the river and loaded into cars and hauled
to the pulp mill. It is the intention to
take out the two upright tubular boilers
and install in their places two of the
latest make of Sterling's boilers of great
steam capacity."
Moses Miiler had a day of rare enjoy
ment Tuesday. For the sum of one dol
lar he purchased a ticket good for con
tinuous passage between Bellows Falls
and Saxtons River from 7 A. m. until 11
p. m. Mr. Miller put in the entire day
and evening riding back and forth, stop
ping only long enough for necessary re
freshments. This was a formal celebra
tion of the fact known to all the world,
viz., that Mr. Miller was really the
originator of the electric road idea. Mr.
Miller never tires of reiterating that if he
had not set his mental machinery in
operation Bellows Falls would never
have had an electric road. lie often tells
how the idea tame upon him as an in
spiration and how hatless and breathless
he fled up Westminster street, through
the Square and to the depot and caught
the late Judge Read, who was then rep
resenting Rockingham in the legislature,
just as he was boarding a train for Mont
pelier, and told him that there ought to
be an electric road between Bellows
Falls and Saxtons River. This hint was
sufficient. The bill was introduced and
a company incorporated. Under the
circumstances the wonder is that the
road should have asked Mr. Miller a dol
lar for the privilege of celebrating.

stated many times. In order that the

may make out their program for another
year and secure lecturers they must
know definitely the sum of money they

dates must be made many months in ad
