WFLUEWZA
WARNED OUT OF TOWN
Mr. Fun bunks, in his History of
St, Johnsbury, mentioned a book en
titled "Warning Out of Town," a
work descriptive of certain results of
a curious law which was in effect in
thij state for some 30 yeaiv, a cen
tury ago, and more. At that period
there were many new comers in all
our Vermont towns, people whom no
one knew anything about, who were
in many cases, shiftless and uncer
tain persons, who were likely to be
come town charges. There was a law
passed of which communities could
rid themselves of the support of such
persons by reading in their hearing
or leaving at their place of abode by
a constable, a precept signed by the
selectmen, warning the parties whose
names were on the summons, "to de
part said town." It is not recorded
that any one ever did depart in con
sequence of such intimation, but, in
the sequel, there were often events
which make a curious comment upon
the law. Mr. Fairbanks himself,
makes note that "Joseph Fairbanks
and family" were warned out of St.
Johnsbury in 1815. Had they taken
the hint that they were "undesirable
citizens," and departed the town, it
would have made some diflerence to
St. Johnsbury. Here in Barnet in
181", a gentleman who had been a
successful lawyer in another state,
had recently come to this town to
practice his profession, when he was
taken sick and soon after died. He
left a widow and five small children,
who were duly "warned out of town"
by the constable, under the warant of
the selectmen.
Whether the widow obeyed the
precept or not, I do not know, as
neither records nor tradition have any
further mention of them here, but
from what I know of the htdy she
was abundantly qualified to take care
of herself in Burnet or anywhere
else, and the sequel shows that the
children were equally able to "keep
off the town."
One of these children became a
noted physician in New York, anoth
er was a lawyer in Buffalo, and a
grandson was a prominent member of
the convention which nominated
Grovcr Cleveland for President in
1884, and seconded his nomination;
one of the daughters married a law
yer who, later, was a member of the
Supreme Court of New Hampshire;
a second became a noted teacher, and
principal of a ladies' school. The
third daughter, I think died young.
The biographies of two of these
children have been published, but
there is no mention of the Barnet epi
sode in either of them. The dece'nd
ents of these children have made n
good record for themselves wherevei
they have been, and so far as I have
been able to trace thoi"., not one of
them have made a failure in life. But
Barnet has acquired no fame from
their residence here.
A year or two later there was an
article in the warning for March
meeting, which, in the sequel, gave a
very pleasant impression of the
spirit of Barnet people a century
ago. The town was asked "to see
what shall be done for a certain
child."
It appears from the context, as the
ministers say, that a little girl, who
seemed to have been about six years
of age, was in Barnet, whose history
or friends were unknown. How this
child came to be here or why being
here, no one appeared to claim her, is
not recorded. Neither is it clear why
people took such pains with her, for
the town, ofter discussion, instructed
the selectmen to place her in some
Christian family, where she will be
"suitably clothed and treated."
In reports of the annuul town
meeting for two or three years this
child came up for consideration, and
the town clerk, who was Rev. David
Goodwillic, was instructed to discover
her friends, if possible. It appears that
he succeeded in finding her kins-people,
as at a March meeting about a
hundred years ago, it was announced
that friends who would receive and
care for the child, lived in Salem,
Mass, and the selectmen were direct
ed to place her in the care of some
trustworthy person who would sec
that she was placed in the hands of
her friends.
Henceforth the child disappears
from Barnet annals and I cannot
trace her after-history. And here
comes in the question why did the
people take so much interest in this
little waif? It is certain that she
was not treated us a pauper and
why not? ' She was not bound out as
other destitute children were. Was
there something particularly attrac
tive in the child that it should then
be singled out for consideration, or
were there circumstances which have
not come down to us which caused
the interest which people took in her?
We may never know, but I like to
dwell upon the kindly spirit manifest
ed by the people of Barnet toward
this friendless child.
And these are only two of some sin
gular circumstances that have come
to light in my research among the
early annals of the town.

RAY SHERBURNE IS
APPOINTED AS HEAD j
OF AERO ATHLETICS
Local Lieutenant Gets Important
Post at Kelly Field,
Texas
Mr. and Mrs. Frank C. Sherburne,
proprietors of the local restaurant
near the station, noted all over Ver
mont as selling the most luscious pie
ever put into the human face, have
received word from their son, a lieu
tenant in the army now stationed at
Kelly Aviation Field, Texas, tiuvt in.
nas been promoted to the position of
head instructor in athletics for the
aviators on the field.
The South San Antonia paper of
recent date, has the following to say
about the young man who has scores
of friends in this community:
Lieut. Raymond F. Sherburne has
been named as successor to Lieut.
Nnthan Malefski as athletic officer
! of Kelly Field. Lieut. Malefski ex
pects to proceed to his home in
Brooklyn shortly, having received his
discharge from the service.
Lieutenant Sherburne is well
known in Sun Antonio, although he
has been away from Kelly Field for
some time. In the early part of last
summer, before he was commissioned,
he took a prominent part in thcathlct
ics of the aviation field, meeting and
defeating all comers in wrestling. He
was famous as a wrestler during his
four years at Tufts college.
It is probable that Lieutenant Sher
burne will take over the basket ball
activities of the fields as well as piny
a big part in putting on the wrestling
and boxing cards. Lieut. John A.
MacD'jnuld was at first expected to
succeed Lieutenant Malefski, but he
is no longer at Kelly Field. Lieuten
ant Malefski is pleased with the
choice of his successor and is sure
that Kelly's athletic standard will be
maintained on its present high plan
by the new athletic department head.
Besides being an all-round athlete
young Sherburne is a past-master in
the art of letter writing, many of his
communications home to his folks,
narrating his experiences in a graphic
manner that shows he missed his call
ing as a newspaperman.

TWO
Although the bird of peace now guards the
world, humanity will not forget the war, but, with
its instinct to shield the sensitive cells of mind and
heart so long overcharged with suffering, will un
consciously seek to blot from memory the darker
shadows of the tragedy. The clear-cut moral issues
for which we have fought may grow a little blurred,
a little dimmed in the mind. Not in order to perpe
tuate bitterness, but to keep Truth in focus, we sug
gest a simple act of symbolism. Cut out a picture
of Foch and a picture of Hindenburg, frame them
side by side and hang them where you can see them.
Those two faces represent the whole meaning
of the conflict. They are Knight and Bully, Gentle
man and Thug. The stern, tender, pain-carved face
of Foch, lit by some inner flame of loyalty; and the
gross, brutal jowl of Hindenburg! Set them as
neighbors, and no .lapse of years will obscure the les
sons wTe must remember.
The face of Foch is a face for honest men to
study. There is honor on the troubled brow and noble
pain in the eyes
Those his goodly eyes,
That o'er the files and musters of the war
Have glowed like plated Mars.
And the face of Hindenburg? It speaks for itself.

Vermont Legislature elected Senator

as sixth Superior Judge, but one bal

den County Senator to defeat Attorney-General
Herbert G. Barber of
Iirattleboro and Ex-Senator W. If.
1'airchild of Fairfield. Acting Adju
tant General Herbert T. Johnson of
Montpelier, formerly of Bradford,
was elected to the office of Adjutant
and Inspector General over Major
Lee S. Tillotson, who left the state
position over a year ago to enter Fed
eral service. Gen. Johnson received
1",0 votes as against 7!) for Major
Tillotson.
The two contests mentioned above
were the ti ly ones in the long pro
gram of electing five Supreme Court
Justices, six Superior Judges, a scr-geant-at-arms,
an adjutant general and
three trustees of the University of
Vermont.
The House of Representatives hall
was packed to capacity and the spec
tators, many of them women, were
treated to a great deal of oratory,
every Senator and Representative
seemingly striving to outdo his neigh
bor in m.'Hr.g complimentary and
flowery nominating and seconding
needles.
Following is the list of officials!
chosen: Chief Justic Supreme Court,
John H. Watson of Montpelier; asso
ciate justices, Seneca Hazelton of
Burlington, George M. Powers of
Morrisvdle, William H. Taylor of
Hardwire r.nd Willard W. Miles of

the University of Vermont for six
years, H. M. McFarland of Hyde
Park, Senator Martin Vilas of Bur

Rutland.
The new Superior Judge, Senator
Moulton, was born in Randolph, was

chool, Dartmouth College and Har

lime been a practising attorney m
Lurlington and also held the im
portant position of Reporter of De
cisions of the Vermont Supreme
Court. He will probably resign as
t: member of the Senate before he
takes office as Judge February 1. Gov.
Clement will undoubtedly appoint hi;!
accessor scon after Senator Moulton
resigns.
The large vote which Adjutant
General Johnson received came as a
distinct surprise although many were
of the opinion that he would defeat
Major Tillotson. Those who nomin
ated and seconded the latter empha
sized the fact that he had left the
position of Adjutant General to enter
federal service and serve in France,
r.nd for that reason if for no other
consideration should be shown and he
should be chosen for the office he oc
cupied for several terms.
Those who seconded the nomina
tion of General Johnson asserted that
the present incumbent had worked
faithfully r.nd tirelessly to efficiently
curry on the duties of the office and
hud succeeded to a remarkable de
cree. Two of the three trustees of the
University of Vermont elected Sena
tor Vilas and Mr. McKarland will bo
new members of the board, succeed
ing Ex. -Gov. Onnsbce and Nelson P.
I'i.ske of Isle La Mottc. It was whis
pered in the corridors that the retire
ment of the two gentlemen hist
rained might, be due to the part they
played in the recent Applcmann case
and at one time it was thought that
possibly some contest might develop.
However, (lie nominations of Messrs.
Vilas and McFarland failed to bring
forth any opposition and they were
elected unanimously.

1 EAST BARNET MAN
HEADED FOR AMERICA
David Royal Warden of East Bar
not, Vt., and until recently a student
.it the Norwich University, North
firld, Vt., .-ailed on the steamship
"Pensacola" for Constantinople with
a large party of relief workers under
the direction of the American Com
mittee for Relief in the Near East.
Accompanying Mr. Warden on the
"Pensacola" were a number of form
er army officers and enlisted men of
the United States army, including avi
ators, who having seen service with
the colors, desire to take part in the
reconstruction work which the Amer
ican Committee for Relief in the Neai
East is carrying on among the 4,000,
000 suffering people in Armenia, Per
sia, Syria and Palestine. The three
years of military training which Mr.
Warden has had at Norwich Univer
sity and the active scrvie which his
associates on the "Pensacola" have
seen is to be turned to good account
by the committee in its campaign
against famine and destitution in
Western Asia. Most of the men who
sailed with Mr. Warden are young
and athletic and all arc well fitted to
tackle the big problems that are to
be found in Western Asia right now.
Like the other men of the "Pensa
cola" Mr. Warden has volunteered his
services to the committee and will re
main abroad for at least a year. The
committee is sending to Constaninople
and other ports in Asia Minor vast
;ua:ititias of food, clothing and modi
cal supplies. Scores of motor trucks,
ambulances and automobiles also are
being despatched to the committee to
be used in the transportation of these
materials throughout Asia Minor. Mr.
Wardm will take a hand at driving a
relief truck and other jobs that may
come up in the course of the cam
paign in Armenia and Syria.
To finance the relief work in
Western Asia the American Commit
tee for Relief in the Near Ea.t is col
lecting I?n0,000,000 throughout the
United Rtrtes.
Mr. Warden was educated at the
St. Johnsbury Academy before going
to Norwich University.
Shortly before the "Pensacola"
sailed Mr. Warden stated he hud join
ed the rank i of the Relief workers be
cause he desired to help out a people
who have scon misfortune and who
are in immediate need of assistance.
