Assid Kourie, who has American ized his name into Isaac Corey, is in jail here under $1,100 bonds on the charge of kidnapping and as sault. He was brought here from Berlin, N. H., last Thursday by State's Attorney Simonds and Sheriff Winch who went to Berlin, N. H., to secure their prisoner. His offenses are the kidnapping of Hazel Simons, a 14 year old girl of Stannard, and striking her adopted brother who at tempted to prevent the kidnapping. Kourie lived in Barre at one time with his wife and one child. When a second child, the girl in this case, was born, Kourie deserted his wife. She was unable to support the fam ily and the city was obliged to help her. Finally the girl, Hazel, was given to Frank Simons and wife of Stannard, and she has since made her home with them. About three years ago, when the girl was old enough to work, Kourie appeared on the scene and tried to get a writ of habeas corpus on which to take the girl away from the Si mons'. The court refused to grant him one and he went away. Last week Monday Kourie, with his brother, secured James Clark and his automobile in Hardwick and went to the school house in Stannard where the girl - was attending school and seized the girl and forcing her into the automobile was driven to Berlin, N. H. Complaint was made to State's At torney Simonds and he and Sheriff Winch went to New Hampshire and 'secured Kourie and let the girl re turn to her home in Stannard. Kourie was brought here and given a hearing before Judge Worcester who placed him under bonds of $1,000 for kidnapping and $100 bonds for assault for striking the boy who tried to rescue the girl. GIRL BADLY HURT. Arm and Hand Crushed in Ma chinery at St. Johnsbury Laundry. Miss Geneva Carr, aged 15, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugenef Carr. of Sum merville, was badly injured at the St. Johnsbury laundry Monday forenoon. She attempted to smooth " the cloth covering of one of the rolls on the mangle while the machine was in motion and her right hand was drawn between the rolls, crushing her hand and arm nearly to the elbow. William Dow, another employe, heard her cries and immediately threw the belt off and Mr. Babcock did what was possible to alleviate the girl's sufferings until the arrival of a doctor. She was taken to Brightlook Hospital, where it was found that amputation will not be necessary. ' Deputy U. S. Marshall Ralph Sullp way went to West Burke, Monday, and arrested Curtis Stoddard on the charge of assaulting and impeding a customs officer. Stoddard was taken before U. S. Commissioner Harry Blodgett, who fixed his bail at $500 and it was fur nished. Old age and a bare cupboard make a hard combination.

Mead's plurality was 16,731. He believed that the com plete returns would give him 17,000. Rutland gave Mead 1,212 and "Wat son 732, or a plurality of 480 for Dr. Mead. Two years ago it gave Prouty a plurality of 735. St. Albans City, Mr. Watson's home, two years ago- .gave Gov. Prouty a plurality of 165 and yes terday gave Watson " a plurality of 415.

Worthen Sheriff by Narrow Margin. . Probably in no other county in Vermont was there a hotter - fight than in Caledonia county.

Bundy, democrat and 'independent, got 1883 votes giving Worthen the narrow plurality of 92. In the governorship fight John A. Mead got 2353 votes compared with 3067 for Prouty two years ago, a loss xf 714. Charles D. Watson got 1264 compared with' 1126 votes for Burke two years ago, a gain of 138.

DEATH OF SIAS RANDALL. Was the Oldest Business Man of St. Johnsbury and Famous V Funeral Director. Although he had passed his 88th birth day, the news of the death of Sias Ran dall on Sunday morning was a great shock to all for he had been in his son's store on Thursday and was apparently recovering from a ten days' illness. Death was due to heart failure. Mr. Randall was one of St. Johnsbury's first business men and his recollections of the early days of the village were always listened to with interest. Few persons SIAS are so fortunate as to live such a long and useful life, reaching nearly 90 years with every faculty unimpaired and a spirit as joyous as when a boy. Sias Randall was born near North Danville on June 12, 1822, on the farm cleared by his grandfather, Israel Randall, before the Revolution. Of his six sons and three daughters, the young est, Thomas, remained on the farm and raised a family of eight sons and three daughters, of whom Sias was the young est. He was educated in the common schools and at Phillips Academy and after ttaching two terms of school spent seven years in company with his brothers in the manufacture of threshing machines. In 1850 he came to St. Johnsbury after a short residence in Sheffield and con tinued the same business at Paddock Village. ' By profession he was a car penter and in 1854 he erected a small structure which is now part of the large Randall block paying $200 ior the land on which it stands. There, in company with Dr. Hoyt, he started the second drug store in town and for many years did a large business. He rebuilt the block in 1868, giving it its present front age, and has since added to ; it from time to time until it contains many tenements, became known to a great many people Too Much for the Money We offer one year's subscription to "Current Literature" ($3.00) and a copy of the Comprehensive Edition of the Standard Dictionary (publishers' price $4.00) for only $3.25.

Bargains ie Briars The tax on briar wood was fixed at 25 per cent. Many dealers have already marked up the price of all briar Pipes in stock. While our present stock lasts, we will sell at the old prices. In 188i he sold the d;ug store to his son, George Randall, and retired from active business but has devoted himself to the care of and repairing on his block. The old drug store and much space that was formerly occupied by tenements is now used by Mr. Randall's son, E. N. Randall, for a department store, making 56 years of history as "Randall's store." Mr. Randall came here the same year that the railroad did and before there was any Railroad street. That year two furrows were plowed up as far as the "gully" and the Passumpsic house was built. Before that the only house on the street was the old Fairbanks farmhouse, now at the lower end of Pearl street and owned by Mrs. Kate G. Brock. Part of the house now owned by the Gilman Brothers was put up that year, and Eastern Avenue was laid out. One of the, ways in which Mr. Randall RANDALL. was as conductor of funerals. He kept record of these and when the custom passed out of fashion, had conducted over 1100 funerals. He held many town offices during his life consta ble, collector, selectman, overseer of the poor, and for nearly 50 years served the town as surveyor of wood and lumber. He was one of the oldest Odd Fellows in St. Johnsbury and was also a member of the Knights of Pythias. He was three times married. His first wife was Laura Ann Weed, whom he married in 1846 and by whom he had four children, George, deceased; Clara, Mrs. P. J. Noyes of Lancaster; Frank of Stam ford, Ct.; and Edson N., of St. Johnsbury. After her death in 1866 he married Philura Stearns, who had one son, Arthur C, of St. Louis, Mo. The present Mrs. Randall was Mrs. Mary Ann Bab cock. Besides his wife and children Mr. Randall leaves five grandchildren, Misses Pauline and Madeline Randall of St. Johnsbury, Miss Gertrude Noyes of Lan caster. Mrs. Myrtie Pettigre w of West field, N.
