(Special to The Reformer.) PUTNEY, Oct. 10. A fire, the origin of which is very mvsterious, completely destroyed Walter Amidon's barn this morning. begin ning at 1 o'clock. The barn was across the road from the house and was all on lire inside before anyone discovered it. Mrs. Amidoii was awakened at 12.30 by Jfer little girl crying, and she started upstairs, where she saw that the barn was filled with flames and the five cows were pulling at their chains. She imme diately called to Mr. Amidon and the three boys-. Stanley, Edward and Wil liam, but by that time there was noth ing that could be done to save the cows, which were burned to dealh. Mr. Ami don installed a $300 milking machine last year, and this was destroyed be sides all the winter's supply of hay. Fred llannum was awakened by the bright light almost lief ore the boys had aroused the neighborhood, and he called the central telephone operator, who telephoned, those a little farther away. The paper mill did not have steam enough to blow the fire alarm at that time on Monday morning, but there was nothing anyone could have done; toward extinguishing the , fire. After all the neighbors had gone home someone rang the alarm. , which aroused people in the lower part of the town, who up to that time were wholly unaware of the fire. The loss is heavy to Mr. Amidon. as it was only partly covered by insurance. SUPT. M'CLELLAND CHOSEN PRESIDENT To Head Vermont Teachers Association Association Favors Depart ment of Education. ST.

BRATTLEBORO CAR ELUDESJFFICERS Shots With Customs Offi cials Exchanged at the Border TWO OTHER LOADS OF BOOZE TAKEN Automobile Directory Gives Registra tion of Car 4067 Under Name of Clara A. Arms, but Xo Such Person. Is Known by Local Officials. Local police officials were on the look out all day yesterday and last, night for a Buick automobile with a Vermont license plate with the number 4067 which avoided capture by the customs officials at the Canadian border near Island Pond after an exchange of shots last Friday night. The mystery of the disappearance of the car has been fur ther deepened by the fact that the regis tration of the car in the state motor vehicle register is under" the name of Clara A. Arms of Brattleboro. Inquiry by. local officials faihj. to show that any one by that name lives in this town or has lived here. ' v - The Buick was one of three cars which attempted to get past the officials at Island Park. The Buick was first in the procession and when the driver was asked to stop he stepped on the gas and sped along. The customs officials lost no time in drawing their revolvers and firing at the car, the fire being returned by the men in the escaping car. Appar ently the customs men failed to damage the tires of the car, as its speed in creased and in a few seconds it. was out' of sight. The second and third cars were stopd and 28 cases of booze were iou ml in one car and .10 in the other. Immediately the police in all towns in this and neighboring states were noti fied and a watch was set, but thus far the much wanted car has failed to ap pear here. The name in the automobile register is thought by the officers to be fictitious, and it is believed by them that the name was chosen by rum runners in order to serve the bootleggers in just such an emergency as has happened. Local officials were in telephone com munication with the customs officials last night, but at that time the latter had heard nothing further about the car.
