The Jury In tho case of State vs. Lewis J Hinders, charged with criminal ai sault, returned a verdict of guilty in ChH tenden county court Friday morning at 11 o'clock after about 2i hours' de'.lbera tlon. Tho Jury recommended leniency to the respondent. The Jurors came In for the second time at nine o'clock Frl di' morning and for the sec- ond time reported that they wero unable to agiee. Judge Hall admonished them of the importance of arriving at verdict and two hours later they re port i as above (-tated. Iewls J. Sanders, who was last week,, found guilty of criminal assault on statu tory grounds, was brought into Chittenden county court Monday afternoon and sen tenced to servo not moro than four nir less fhan three years In the State's prison at Windsor, besides paying costs. In pro nounclng sentenco Judga Hall Enid he took Into account the fact that the re spondent had already been In Jail nearly nine months and that tho Jury recom mended leniency. In tho case of State vs. W. C. (iuyette, the resmndcnt being charged with fur ni.shlng, a line of f300 and costs was tm posed. The execution of the sentence was stayed and rjuyette was placed In the hands of the probation otlleer. He conn s from liolton. Tiio greater part of the session of Chit tenden county court Monday afternoon wis devoted to the aiguments on the de murrer filed by V. A. Milliard for the do fendont In tho case of State vs. (J, ! Peet of Khelbiirne, who Is charged with"! having "bob" veal on hand, with Intent to sell. The d fendnnt's brief sets up that tho demurrer should bo sustained as to nine of tho counts hi cause nono of them charge tho respondent with any offense, not even that contaniplatrd by tho statute, N'o. 1R2 of the acts of Tuo lmef continues that tho demurrer should bo sustained as to jill of the counts In the information because the statute upon which they arc based Is unconstltu tlnn.il: (a) It Is a violation of Fcctlon S, article 1 of tho federal constitution, which give Congress the power to regulate commerce between States, foreign nations and In dlan tribes. (b) It Is In confl ct with article 1 of the declaration of rights of tho Inhabitants of Vermont In that It deprives tho respon dent of tho natural and Inherent right of possessing and protecting property. (c) The act deprives the respondent of tho benellts of si trial by Jury. Tho a" provides In the matter of evidence thnt "the possession of any such flesh, dressed or packed In a manner suitable for sale or uso as food shall bo prima facie ev delicti of tho Intent to sell the same or to ship tho same out of th State for use us food." This provision of tho law deprived both court and Jury of any legnl right or opportunity to determine tho weight or Importance to be attached to clrcum stances that are nothing mom than evl denco having a tendency to establish cor tain things. Thero would bo only one course for a court to take and that would bo to compel the Jury, If a respondent have In his possession the flesh of n calf under size or under weight, dressed suit ablo for sale, to convict him whether the Jury believe such a respondent gTillty or not, unless the effect created by the sta tuto Is overcomo by other evidence State's Attorney Sherman, who repre scnts the State In tho case, claims In his brief that the calves In question were not articles of commerce, becauso they were unwiolcsomo and unfit for food; that they would not como under tho Jurisdiction of ti.e Intorstato commerco law until trnm portatlon had actually begun and that the constitution of tho Vnlted States does not protect any one 1n tho perpetration of fraud.

Sugar innkers In Cambridge and Fletch er, two of the banner sugar towns, claim thnt they have already niade two pounds of sugar to the tree, which Is a good average for an entire season. Tho pat week has been an extraordinary one for sugar makers, who have had to work night nnd day to keep up with the flow of sap. On Friday nearly all sugar makers were In the sanu predicament, all their receiving tubs were f'lll nt sap, the buckets were running o r and the evap orator was kept hot all night to asl mlllate the oceans of sugary liquid. Saturday was an off day, however for thero uas a cold east wind and the sap did not run. Hut most of tho farmers did not care for It gav them a chancn to catch up wUh their work. A Freo ress mnn visited several sugar orchards In Cambridge nn Saturday nnd In nn In terview one sugar maker said: "I don't care much whether we have another run of sap or not. I've already made two pounds to a tree and nm pretty tired nfter working nlgl-t and day for threo days. I have refused to contract my tub sugar for ten cuts a pound, al though many of my neighbors have sold theirs for much less and call me foolish for hanging back " Maple syrup Is retailing for a dollar a gallon In the country towns and buyers are paying as high as rents.

April 1".- TU- surgeons of St. Orcsory's hospital perfornnd an opera tion yesterday on a six-year-old Italian boy, Peter Leparl. of No. ., Van Hrunt street, Hrooklyn, by which they leplnced a portion nf a necrotic bone of the left torcarm with a substance known as "bone wax," which will In time, tho surgeons say, turn into bone. Tiio enure si.ut or the hospital was present. The .surgeons t,aid that the npcratlnn was one nf the first of Its kind In this country. Professor Joseph Forbes, of tho Flower hospital, and Dr. C. II. Duncan chief haute surgeon of St. (iregory's hos. pltal, who performed the operation, as slsted by Drs. David and Payne, said that without a doubt It will be a sue cess. When the bny was brought to the hos pltal." Dr. Duncan said, " It was found that he was suffering from a tubercular bono In tho foreann. Decomposition had ct in. To prevent the loss of the uso of tho arm nnd the complete removal of tne bone, we decided to bring iho 'bone wax" Into use. A X-ray will be used dally to watch the progress of healing. "ilortofore," continue d Dr. Duncan, "In cases of this kind, whero the bono Is ex cised, tho limb becomes useless, 'Hono wax' was discovered by ii flerman scientist ten years ago, and has been used In Vienna. The 'ljonn wax' which was put Into tho boy's arm was moulded In tho shape of the cavity from which the necrotic bone had been removed. New vessels and bone tissues will soon form, nnd the chemical substanco will gradually disappear, leaving the arm In Its normal condition. "An Illustration of this character," Dr. Duncan sa'd, "Is Interesting becauso of Its Innovation nnd utility. It has been dem onstrated beyond doubt thnt healing can be brought about In places where tissues In mass hnve been destroyed nnd a cavity exists. Cavities have been tilled with va rious substances, provided tho wound Is sterile, nnd new formation of tlssuo has been tho result. Now vessels will push their way Into the material; new connec tive tJBsuo fibres will pler o It, tilt finally the foreign substanco has been completely absorbed, and the placo It occupied Is lUlcd wlUi nntmal tissue. Dr. Moorhof of Vi enna, who discovered tho 'bouo-wfix,' found that where It was used In the caso of complete loss of heel bono now heel bono was formed, which haH been demon strated positively by tho X-ray. "X-ray pictures of the bone In tho boy's arm have been recorded, and when hcib Ing Is over new photographs will bo tnken Wo have every reason to bellovo that In this selected cane our endeavors to form a now bono will bo successful."

Hie PntcIunllnK Hnuce and Its Slgnl nennrfe Trade Notei In l.ltfs of Slnvrn. Much has been written nbout the geleha girls of Japan for American comic nperns Hut this does not nnswer tho question: Who arc tho gelshcs? In tho April House keeper, Marian Honsall writes from a personal knowledge. Hy n fortunnto accident, I saw my first geisha dance from the vantage point of a. back stairway in a Japanese Inn, and the dance Itself was an Informal rehear sal before a largo mirror, and was inter spersed by many little giggles. and many Interruptions for tho dancers to play w ith a tiny Japanese baby who was continually toddling In their way. From that moment the fascinating little geisha In their marvelous ceremonial robes, with golden tassels glittering against their black hair, smiling with roughed lips wero very human girls to me. And when that evening I saw them In their profes sional capacity, dancing before the guests nt the banquet, serving them with food nnd sake, always with the most pei-fect of bows, amusing them by their enchant ing little mannerisms and graces, play ing at the coquettish little game of jan-ken-Ko with tho men guests, I felt a per sonal Interest In their lives, which al ways gave to tho dance thereafter a par ticular Interest nnd charm. Probably you know that the geisha ;;lrls are bought by their masters when they aro little children, and that their training begins straightway. The object of their training Is to becomo beautiful, graceful nnd fascinating, that they may cam njoney as entertainers at feasts. They nSiiFt learn to dance nnd to sing md to play musical Instruments, to be apt In conversation and to have bewitch ing manners. Their training Is very rigid. Sometimes on bltterlj- cold nights tho little glils who are to become geisha are sent upon the housetops to ting until It is no longer possible to make a sound, fur the long period of hoarseness which follows Impart a desired timbre to their voices. The hours fnr their pract'ec are long, nnd their lessons hard. They must knnw i many, many dances and games and the . greater thV number of their accomplish - ments, of course, the brighter Is their future. When they have learned to plav sufficiently well on a nris'ci! Inst r i- , ment, they nre s-nt nut to feasts with I the older geisha, and ns thev take some I little part in the music which nciom-j panics the dance, thev observe, for fu- tore use, the mnnm r of the geisha to- wards the guests. Tho money they re reive Is given over to their master. He It uovldes them with their gar - Is who provide mefrts, often nf Indescribable beauty Only geisha, by virtue of their profcr slon, may wear such elaborate garments, and they heighten the effect by manv lit tle tricks of dress, not permissible by other women. Lives so superficial have always a trag'c note, and tho romances nf tho little geisha are often unutterably sad. The brightest future they may look fnrward to Is that thev sufficiently win tho favor nf some man to havo him re deem their liberty. Hut at the feast, while they dance, no sadness Is apparent. Imagine yourself rented on the floor before a tiny table, at n Japanese banquet, and about to witness the geisha dance for the first time, Hefore the dancers enter. older geisha, moro soberly dressed, take their places upon the floor nnd play upon ftrlnged Instruments and little drums, making sounds that seem wild nnd wlerd nnd unmusical, vet undeniably fascinating, Aro the r.idlont creatures who follow, In their soft, trailing silks and brilliant obi, with costumes an nban don of richness, girls, or nre they women" Vou do not know, nnd you cannot know, for tho little girls under their smiling childlike fares, conceal the experience of women, and the women are In many wnys but little children. They am' puzzl ing, and bewildering and benuttfid,-that Is all you know, ' Their dance, a series of poses, expres ses an Iden, or a poem, as our music Tho charm nf tho motion la In tho little feet In spotless white tabl. In the obo dlant motion nf their sllkon drapeiles upon the floor, tho fluttering of the long sleeves, the position of tho brad, and the opening nnd clos'tng and undulating of a fan, that speaks nnd lives ns a fan only can live and speak In tho hands of a , Japanese dancing girl. , During the dance the geisha do not smile; afterwards, as they till your cup and set vlandH before you, they laugh nnd chatter gaily.
