Dr. G. II. Anderson Approves Reformer's
Suggestion for Town's Getting To
gether with Thompson Trustees.
Kditor of, the Reformer:
The article appearing in last Satur
day's Reformer, setting forth the atti
tude of the trustees of the Thomson
Fund towards the expenditure of money
in Brattleboro for "kindred charities"
together with a suggested plan of action
by yourself, merits the careful consider
ation of our townspeople. For a great
many years "Brattleboro has accepted
aid from, the Thompson Fund as a mat
ter of course, and wirn one exception,
has never contributed anything to the
support of the work which has been of
such inestimable value to the commu
nity. '1 lie Memorial hospital, which comes
under the caption of "kindred chari
ties", was built and equipped aliout 17
years ago. at a cost of approximately
po,t!0. Since that time it has cared
for about S.OliO patients. The gifts and
outribut ions during this entile period,
with the exception ot l-),,NM' given by
Mr. atid- -Mrs. George L. Dunham for
the creel ion of a nurses' home, have
not totalled SCViO. Communities the size
of Brattleboro ordinarily build and
maintain hospitals at the exjense of
their own townspeople. Kven communi
ties wh'ch are so fortunate as to re
ceive money for the erection and en
dowment of sin-h an institution, take
an active part in it's supirt.

According to the census of Manning &
Co. there has been an increase of approxi
mately 1.551 1 since the government cen
sus. The new directory lists the names of
about 5.400 adults, and to this list must
be nddeil the children down to the babies
in arms to get the total populatini.
That Rrattlciv.ro is growing is a fact
we!l known to nil residents. There never
was a time when tenements here were
as scarce as at present, and the shortage
of housing facilities is one of the pressing
problems that Brattleboro will have to
take under consideration at once if the
town is to receive the benefits that are
knocking at the diMir.
When asked for his views as o the
correctness of Manning Sc Co.'s estimate,
S. W. Edgett. real estate agent, said he
had no doubt that they were approxi
mately correct. "In the '2" years that I
have been in business here," said Mr.
Edgett. "T have never before known of
such a demand for tenements as there has
been the past six mouths and as there
is at the present time. Two or three per-

no question but that our population

there would be plenty of building."
These are not alne Mr. Edgett's views,
as many others have the same ideas as to
the building situation in Brattlekiro.
President Carl S. Hopkins of the
Chamber of Commerce said it was evident
to all that the population of the town
was growing rapidly, but he was not so
sure that Manning & Co.'s figures were not
too high. "They may be correct at that."
Mr. ll tpkins admitted.
Sometimes it is said that because of
general prosperity and high wages people
have abandoned the cheaper tenements
and moved to the more expensive ones,
but whether this is true or not the fact
remains that all the cheaper tenements in
Brattleborc are occupied.

for the Springlield train, but that the
public insisted on a southbound train

the matter might be arranged by inducing
