Kirby, a Middlesex county detective credited with having obtained the statement from Raymond Schneider on which Clifford Hayes, 10,'was charged with murders of Itev. Edward Wheeler Hall and choir leader, Mrs. Eleanor It. Mills, was attacked by a group of indig nant citizens here early today. Horn barded with bricks Kirby escaped un hurt by locking himself in baggage room at Pennsylvania station. Later he was surrounded by armed iwlicemen in uni form. Prison bars closed last night on a third imiKirtant figure in the Hall Mills murder mystery but the in farceration. instead of helping clear the labyrinthine tangle of clite and, counter-clues, served only to emphasize the 'difficulties the authorities are en countering in their efforts to check, up the evidence on which 10-yeur-old Clif ford Hayes stands accused of the double slaying. The third to go to jHI was Pearl Hahmer. Sue is the loyear-old girl who, Raymond Schneider says. Hayes thought he was slaying. with her father, when according to Schneider's story Hayes pumped four bullets into the Iwidies of the Uev. Edward Wheeler Hall and Mrs. Eleanor Heinhardt Mills, on the night of Sept. 14. beneath an apple tree on the deserted Phillips farm. Schneider is held as a material witness. Pearl was not officially jailed in con nection with the Hall-Mills case. The charge against her which she calmly admitted was incorrigibility. Prosecu-: tor Strieker, of Middlesex county., who has been sictive in the investigation of the Hall-Mills case, appeared - lterson nlly against her. however. County Judge Daly, before whom the hearing was held, departed from the rule of secrecy in juvenile cases and threw his court open because, he declared, the jx'ople "have a rijzht to know why the is being put in jail." At the end of the hearing, after she had testified to intimacy with Schneider and her father. she was officially committed for a week, pending a decision on the incorrigibility charge' Unofficially, it was said, that she was being given a chance to "think over'' the conflicting stories she had fold. An additional reason for her incarceration was said-to be the fact that she was too difficult to find when she was wanted for ruesfioning.

Incidentally, she has turned against Schneider, once ad mittedly her sweetheart, and has sought to convey the impression that he knew more about the murders than Hayes, whom he accused of the crime. Schneider, it was disclosed yesterday, told four different stories? about bis knowledge of the slayings he fore . he reached the story of Hayes's commission of the crime, on which the authorities acted. His final story still fails to jibe with facts about the murder brought out from other sources not ably , his in sistence that neither Hayes nor he had cut Mrs. Mills's throat after the shoot ing, although an autopsy showed the head had been almost severed. Detectives and slate troopers con tinued their efforts to uncover more evidence about the murders, many of them frankly expressing skepticism as to Schneider's story, and indicating they had leads which pointed to a wholly dif ferent solution of the case.

I MONKEY ESCAPES S ON SPRUCE STREET Member of Joseph Gangler's Circus Jumps from High Barn Window Is Perfectly Harmless. If anyone sees a Java monkey roaming around I'rattleboro just call him "Pete" and try coaxing him a little, but don't have any fear of being bitten if he re sponds to the coaxing. "Pete" belongs t Joseph Gangler's animal circus at 10 Spruce street and he cut up a monkey shine last night after Mr. Gangler had given him his supper, jumping through the third story window of the barn and disanpearing. "Pete" is about a year old and Mr. (.angler bought him of the Ilingling Shows when he was a baby. Between (j and 7 o'clock last evening Mr. Gangler let him 'out of the monkey quarters in the barn to eat his supper, and after he bad eaten to his satisfaction be espied an open window near the top of the barn. He edged near a stairway and darted up stairs to the hay loft. The hay was altout six feet below the window, but the monk easily leaped to tlfe window and then made a long drop, at least two and a half stories, to a small cherry tree, seven or eijjht feet full, which stands a few feet away from the barn. That was the last, that has been seen of Mr. Monk, but his owner believes he has not strayed far away. He is per fectly harmless, and any child can haiii die him without danger. Mr. Gangler says. He shows his teeth by curling his upper lip. but his owner says this is characteristic of Java monks and is not done ns a warning. He has a long straight tail and on his neck is a collar with ring attached. He is very fond of fruit. :'"t Mr. Gangler, whose telephone call is lllfl-X. is very desirous of catching the little animal as soon as possible, be cause if he takes cold he is verv likely to die of consumption. "Pete" took leave without permission once before, but Mr. Gangler. had no difficulty that time in finding him.

PLAZA SIGNPOST MISLEADS TOURISTS FOR H US 01 Indicates One Road for Hinsdale and Guilford, and Another Road for Keene and Bernardston. Attention has been., called to ihe mis- leading information that is given tour ists by the signpost situated . on the plaza near the honor roll at the junction of Vernon, Canal and Main streets. This sign, which has been in that location a long time, is understood by the villagers, but to an outsider it is confusing. The sign, which L elliptical in shape, ' is supposed to show the way to Hinsdale and Keene on the one hand, and Giul ford. Bernardston and Greenfield on the other. From an artistic point of view, the sign is a success, but otherwise it is nor. The upper fist is supposed to in dicate the route to Hinsdale and Keene, and the lower fist to the other tqwns mentioned, but the town names are so arranged, that the upper fist, which points to the last, is taken by tourists to indicate the road to Hinsdale and Guil toid, while the fist that points to the west, is taken to indicate Keene and Bernardston. Greenfield is placed at the bottom as though the artist who made the sign was in a dilemma as to just where it should be placed on the sign. .''. The Reformer has been informed that mrny tourists have been led astray by -this sign, and it is pointed out that such a direction post does not add materially . to the assets f the town, from the stand point of tne tourist, at least. it nas been suggested that if a line of demarca tion be drawn vertically down through the center with the two New Ilamp shire towns painted on the east side and the three other towns on the west side with fists pointing in the proper direc tions, much misinformation would be avoided. .
