Scmp of the new Iwioks have arrived within the last week but Miss I'lumb it'll experiences some difficulty in the advanced algebra class because these lxmks are a little late. On Tuesday morning a motion was made and seconded that Mr. AVright's suggestion of the preceding morning be ac-epted and the matter was left to be disclosed for a few days before being vi ted upon. At the assembly Monday morning Frincipal Wright suggested thet the stu dents should form a !oard to govern school activities and that, rather than elect another board, the athletic, govern ing board should serve also in that ca pacity. At present the seating is a bit crowded because there are not enough desks for the whole student body, so that some are c I liged to occupy chairs but our enter prising school board has ordered 20 of the large armed chairs with a drawer in which to keep books. The sixteen members of the Athletic committee held a meeting Monday at which Nathan Dauchy. "J'2. was elected chairman. Doris Morse, "2?,, .secretary, fed F.loise Ctimmings, 'J'J. treasurer. This committee is made up of a boy and ?iir! from each of the four lower clashes and two b:tys and two girls from each of the upper classes: Mr. Wright, innch to the sorrow ot many students, seems to have a plan for keeping them at work. If he sees a per son with no work to do gazing vacantly around the room h requests that person to' write a theme on the. origin of the po tato or seine other interesting ( 't sub ject.

As this place is a. considerable distance from the village the long Walk helnod to make the martdi inallows, corn and apples disappear rap idly after they were roasted over a huge bonfire. The festivity ended with games and cheers. of challenge., The completed Jury .was made up of the following: i'mest Cn'; bett of Wilmington, W. F. Cud worth of Londonderry. W. (i. Worden of Guilford, Floyd Gernsh of Halifax, Finest Mur doch of WhHinghnm, W. F. Walker of Wst Hrattleboro. George Carpenter of Wilmington. Fred Hall of Londonderry. George 1'. Hubbard of Wilmington, I--lie II. Adams of Wilmington, L. S. Streeter of Wardsboro and M. J. Ander son of Whitingham. Clerk W. It. Daley read the indictment against the respondent, which charged that on May ". 1021. he feloniously and with malice aforethought killed George Itace in the towii of Chester, in which town the village of Gassetts is located. Attorney General Archibald asked all the state witnesses except the physicians leave the courtroom so as not to hear the testimony, and then he made a statement as to what the state would try to prove. He f-aid the evidence would show that Gibson and William Leseord were sol diers and deserted from Camp Iix, going to South Ashburnham, Mass., where Fcs ord's mother lives. They came from there to Vermont, which was the first time Gibson had been in the state. They had no monev. he said, and after going from F.ellowVFalls to Gassetts Gibson se cured work on a farm while Fescord went to work for liace in the latter gen eral store. They were in uniform and visited each other several times and made plans to rob the aged merchant of his money, the attorney general said. The evidence would show further, Mr. Archibald said, that early in the evening of May .r the two deserters met at the store and three other persons came there. Thev had a Moxie bottle of lhpior, which was drunk. The three others left about 11 o'clock, and there was only circum stantial evidence to show what happened after that until Hace, nearly dead, was found next morning on the floor of his kitchen in the store building. Hace was struck several blows on the head and was robbed of alxiut !?""'(). and the attorney general said the evidence would show that Gibson remained with Knee while Fescord hitched Hace's horse to a buggy. During that time, he said. Iiace revived and Gibson struck him the last blow. The two deserters then drove to liellows Falls, the state claims, arriv ing there at "2 a. in., went to the railroad station and bought tickets for Kerne. N. II., but; remained on the train until it reached South Ashburnham, Mass., where they were arrested in the heme of Fescord's mother the following night. At that time Gibson had from S17 to SL'O in his pockets, which in the attor ney general's mind tended to confirm the state's theory that the motive for the mur der was robbery and that the two divided the money taken from Race. Attorney P.icknell said he had in pre liminary statement to make, so the first witness was called. About 1" spectators, besides witnesses, were in the courtroom at the time. The state first called livron A. Ribin snn of Fellows Falls, a civil engineer, who went May 7 to the scene of the murder and with the aid of a detective from the Woi-d agency in ISoston and I' red He land made a plan of the ground floor o the buihliiie. which was introduced as an exhibit.
