His last illness was of four days' duration. Mr. Weeks had never been well or free from pain since he sustained a severe wound in the right hip in the battle or (Jhantilly. Mr. Weeks was born in Boonville, N. Y., July 9, 1843, a son of John and Lucy (Smith) AVeeks. lie lived there until nine years of age, when with his parents he moved to Xorthfield, Mass. lie continued to make his home there until he enlisted for the war in Com pany D, 21st Massachusetts regiment. The regiment was sent to Annapolis and then became a part of Burnside's expedition and participated in the bat tles of Newburg, Koanoake Island, the second battle of Bull Run and Chan tilly, where Mr. Weeks was shot, a minie ball going through his right hip. lie fell and was brought off the field by comrades and placed with others of the Federal wounded in an old barn. There ' they remained 10 ! days with their festering wouads un attended until the arrival of ambu lances, in which they were taken to Washington. Mr. Weeks remained in the Clifton hospital in Washington three months and was finally able to travel on crutehes and was given a furlough. He returned to Northfield, but at the expiration of his furlough he was still unable to walk without the aid of crutches and applied for his discharge from the service. This was granted as he was so wounded that he would never again be fit for military duty. Mr. Weeks was only 19 years old when he received his wound, and from that day to the day of his death he never was free from pain. i lie worked on a farm m v ernon af ter he was able to resume active la bor and on Oct. 3, 1S64, went with Alice Graves of Vernon to Deerfield where they were married by Rev. James K. Hosmer and thev returned to Vernon. Mr. and Mrs. Weeks contin ued1 to live in Vernon several years, moving later to West INorthfield and finally in 1881 to Brattleboro, where they bought the house at 6 Pearl street, which has since been their home. Mr. Weeks conducted a barber shop in Brattleboro until 12 years ago, when he sold out owing to failing health and for four years was engaged in the milk business, but eight years ago he was obliged to retire from all active employment. 'In spite of his infirmities he was always cheerful and hopeful. He was an unostentaneous man, and a firm believer in the. gold en rule, which he always practiced. He leaves his wife and one daugh ter, Mary, Mrs. Spencer W. Knight, who with her husband has lived in the Pearl street home since her mar riage. The funeral was held this af ternoon at 2 o'clock at the house, Rev. Roy M. Houghton of the Congrega tional church conducting the service. The bearers were relatives, J. L. Stockwell, S. W. Tonight, John E. Gale and Fred C. Gale. The burial will take place in Christ church cemetery in Guilford. Big. Mass Meeting Held Auditorium Last Night KEEP TOWN CLEAN WAS THE MESSAGE to be habitual users of liquor. Some legislation on the license question was accomplished at the recent session and it all was along the line of progress. The temperance sentiment in Vermont never was as strong as it is today. The fact that Brattleboro has given a con stantly increasing no-lisence majority ; has attracted attention eisewnere I and if the standard were to be low- ered the influence would be detrimental. From a financial point of view also we i must keep the town in the no-license j eolumn. It is a poor saloon that does , not take in $50 a day. If that is con i tributed by the wage earners it means i just so much less for necessities for j their families. License in towns which ) now have it is unsatisfactory. It is our j duty to keep the town in the no column. ! Mr. Smith said there were 1000 boys and girls in this school district who would be voters some day, and he urged a no-license majority for the influence it would have upon them. The audience caught his point about the girls becom ing voters. Mr. Hayward said there was but one way to vote, and that was against the license institution. The schools consti tute the most important function in our town. The town is one mill, the schools are another mill. If the machinery in the town mill slips a cog the effect is felt in the schools and they cannot turn out the finest wheat. The saloon puts shoddy into the finished product. It draws upon the vitality of both the ; town and the schools. The license fee cuts no figure at all. The open saloon is the most destructive agency which the school in license communities has to contend against. Mr. Bond urged the voters to infrom themselves upon the questions at issue before voting. "I have faith in the people," he said, "if they understand the question." Why should we vote no? First, for a clean town for Brattleboro. We are trying to get manufactures here and we have splendid power for them, although we are somewhat handicapped in the matter of freight rates. We want more labor, but we want a class of j laboring men who will check their bal lots tor no-license. The state of Ver mont is fast coming into its own. It is bringing in people who are striving to find a clean place in which to spend their summer vacations. Those people will turn their backs on a saloon-ridden town. If we cater to them, as we should, we must keep the town and the 1.. very man in this town A Five Speakers Presented Strong Ar guments for Voting No-License Tomorrow Concrete Illustrations Clinched the Points Made. Strong arguments for a clean Brattle boro through a continuation of the pres ent no-license policy, illustrated by many concrete examples, were made be fore several hundred persons in the Auditorium last evening, and the vot ers were urged to go to the polls early tomorrow to cast their ballots against legalizing the sale of liquor in this town. E. B. Smith, principal of the high school, was chairman of the meeting and the speakers were Attorney O. B. Hughes, Sanford A. Daniels, Edward C. Crosby, Assistant Principal Fred D. Hayward and Henry Bond of Tyler street. Leitsinger 's orchestra rendered several selections at the opening, the combined choirs of the Baptist and Con gregational churches sang an anthem and Frederic C. Adams sang a solo with violin obligato. Chairman Smith announced that the meeting was preliminary to the town meeting, that for four years there had been a steady increase in the majority for no-license and that he believed a majority of the people of the town were opposed to the liquor traffic. "We are here tonight," he said, "not simply to urge you to vote no, but to try to stir j state clean up the indifferent. If we can do that 'is deeply concerned in this question. we shall feel that we have accomplished ! no-license speaker in North Adams was a great deal." ! asked by a man in the audience, "What Mr. Hughes said he desired not so J is it to you?" Six weeks later that much to present the reasons why a no I speaker was married and on his wed ding trip.

"Let every man make this a personal matter, and when von enter the booth do tout dutv." vote was desirable as to impress upon every voter the necessity of performing his duty at the polls. He told of the system of cheeking up the voters as they cast their ballots, in order that those who were attempting to get out a large vote might know what voters to notify as the day wore on, and he said it was astonishing to know how many merchants and others within a short distance of Festival hall delayed voting jTHE VETERAN uiiiii mtj last minuie or zaueu to vote at all.

Huges said, with a no-license, majority of 400, but ought to set higher mark as a larger majority would offer still more discouragement to the opposition. For the past few years we have been en deavoring to improve Brattleboro. Em ployers of labor will be more willing to invest their capital here if they can be assured that the town will vote no license in the years to come. Mr. Hughes stated that the ballots on the j subject of licenses would contain two questions, one relating to general ques tion of license and one to see if licenses of the fifth class would be granted. He said it was not necessary to vote on both questions and that a ballot would not be invalidated bv marking it in j only in one place Years, is Oldest Railroad Man in Continuous Service in United States In Brattleboro 36 Years.

CLEVELAND The Tobacco Man death made an impression upon him which never had been effaced and that from the time of the incident referred I to he decided never to use liquor. He said he did not know the taste of beer or liquor of any kind, never having used it in any form. "Some people say the saloon makes business. Is it a legit imate business? Is it the kind we want? Tf you were going home some night and a man with a revolver held you up and said, 'Your money or your life' what would vou do? Any man witn Drains would give up all he had. little to Uo soon lhat would not hurt his reputation or character or his home. If you form the liquor habit it not only takes your mon ey but ruins your character and works an injury to all that yon hold sacred. We don't want any saloons in Brattle boro. ' ' Mr. Crosby brought a good report from the legislature, of which he is a member. Of the nearly 300 members of that body he said only three were known the Brattleboro & Whitehall railroad. now the West River Railroad. Mr. Brooks's record of railway service is believed to be unequalled in the entire United States. Still hale and hearty he can be seen behind the window screen of the Gardner station each day. When railroad officials suggested retirement two years ago he scoffed at the idea, telling them that as long as he was in good health he was bet ter off working than sitting rouud do ing nothing. He based his argument on the principle that a man who has finds that he is not able ;to do much. Mr. Brooks was the first president of the Railway Veter ans association. PAID $300 FINE AND COSTS.
