It Is expected thpt their I'ellberatlons will take several days, Edward Oero pleaded guilty to sending a threatening letter to the Hutland nail road company.

Cup Won by Mcillcnt Fraternity Who Presented n SiKIre on Osteopathy f'likr Weill tu Messrs. How mill llurrnuc. The annual kako walk went off Tuesday night with great eclat. 1 ho L'nlvcrslty or Vermont uaslttm was literally crowded a throng of spectators that beted well over 1,100. tho "stunts' gym with n u in -were morn elaborate than ever before and the kako wnlk proper was well represented by six couples. Tho cup this year went to the medics, being won by Delia Mu, u medical frat ernity, with the 11th and lo-st stunt en titled "Dr. Fult-um-nll-Osteownlk, In a series of Wonderful and Soul-Raising Cuies." Dow and Hurrase, both seniors In the academic department, won tho walk easily, with some of the most nr llstlc high slcpplng that was ever seen In tho "gym." Tho cup offered by T. H. Wright, manager of the 3yndlcale Cloth ing company, for the best rig In the pre liminary grand march waa awatded to Messrs F.asso and Stone, who appeared as two Xultts, without mucli of any attlte, one leading the other by a nose ring. The evening began with a concert of three numbers by the college band, a march, a medley overture and an In termezzo, all admirably rendered. Then eamo tho stunts and, though the wa'ts between wcro long, no ono seemed to mind It very much. It was decidedly n good-natured audience. The first stunt was called "In Mo murium" and v.'es put on by the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. Un a high pedestal, at the four corners of which stood four continental sol diers, rat the Father of Ills Country mounted on a gray horse which look ed suspiciously like one that has done long sentinel duty In front ef a cer tain Burlington harness shop. The wholo wn lighted with myriads of colored lights and altogether made ono of the best of the stunts. The ap plause continued through Its brief appearance and long after the lights had been turned off. "Pomona Orange on a Ixtrk" came next. It was the work of the Lambda lota 'raternlty and offered many an In teresting study In rurnl character. There were a good many local personalities and Fiime minstrel show features. The -horusei went off well and the end man work was funny "His Majesty's Oame." by Alpha Tail Omega, represented a miser suddenly surprised by tho devil In the very act of gloating over his gold. The bags of coin were turned to skulls with one sweep of His Satanic Majesty's wand and the miser passed away In disgust. It was n well staged and artistic stunt, though rather meagre In effects. Kappa Sigma offered "l.'nele Sam's Customary Custom House Customs, showing what happens when one comes Into ols country. The trust magna tes escaped with whole skins but the or dinary people had to be run through a coffee mill effect which turned them out minus most of their raiment. A street scene In Washington, D. C Mrs. Crlstabel Parkhursl, Mrs. Annlo Kennedy and the Rev. Annie Howard Shaw." was the long title of the Alpha I'.eta entertainment. A real, live automo bile appeared on the floor containing a bunch of well made up suffragettes who pulled off a lively campaign. There wero some comic features which took well. Sigma Phi presented "The Mystical In cubaiion," In which an old farmer, from over t:dv of poultiy literature, falls Into a deep and dreamful sleep. There was a hen about SO, sizes larger than a mas todon and a lot of two bushel eggs. Thn eggs hatched out a lot of green and red devils who did a dance to rome doleful music from aloft. What with the music and the red lights and the occasional Hying leaps of one of the devils, the stunt wns one of tho best. Phi Delta Theta put on "Robert Houdln In the King's Garden," a very elaborately staged and costumed act v. Inch had as a motif the magic performances of Houdln. With a burst of flame several doves came nut of n box which magically appeared on tho stage. The act ended with a danen by a ghost and n Job tot of skeletons, all conjured out. of thin air by Houdln's wa r.d. "An Indian Pow Wow, or Wllllo Went West" showed the adventure; of a youngster who longid for the plains. It was gotten up by the Sigma Nu fiater- uity and showc-d careful preparation In the matter of costunnng ana make-up, Wllllo was at last roall-tleally scalpel and burned at the ' ke, In full view of tho audience. Delta Psl gave a charming representa tion of the myth of Pandora's box. Mur der and nvnrice and all tho other human Ills came out of the fatal bow each In a burst of flame, when It was opened. But hope at last appealed a shining tnper In her hand, and tho Incident wns rioted under promising nusplces. Tho Inst stunt, "Dr. Fiile-l'm-All," Delta Mil's cup winner., was pietiy neaily a plain slam at osteopathy. The learned doctor delivered n long lecture proee-dlng his demonstration, which sparkled here nnd there with witticisms that did not fall to make a hit with the crowd, A young l.-dy of uncertain age was then placed upon the operating table, her neck was stretched out several voids nd then hammered back. She died. Walking for the cako Immediately fol lowed the concluslun of tho stunts. The first couple Introduced a novel fentiuc Into thulr walk. Bales of cotton were strung nlong their path and at the touch of a cane pickaninnies Jumped out aud Joined In. Of tho six couples who walk ed all wero clever and It wns only by a. marked superiority that Dow nnd llur rago won. Tho rake walkers wero: Ryan and Irwin (medics), Dow and Bur rage, MeCrae and Pattce, . Hayes anil Fnrrcll, O'Brien nnd Graves, and Brown and Bloomer. Tho committee In charge consisted of Hayea '10, chairman; Thayer '10, Grout 'Hi. Guthrie (medic) '10, Farrell (medic) '10, Donahue '11, Bench 'II, DyniHti, Jr. Ml, Lord 'n, w. P. Ryan (medic) Ml, Hunt '12. llrlgham M2, nnd Waterman '12 The Judges were Dr. II. C. Tinkbam, D. A. Ioomls, Mnyor J. K. Burko, Prof J. F. Mes songor and Dr C n Beechor. While thoy were out making up their minds DOES THIS MEAN YOU?

Perhaps not one of these, however, would want to buy the house you want to sell. If your advertisement, how evor, were to be printed Iu thoso columns to-day It would "stop" KVKRY man in town who WANTS TO BUY A IIOL'SE and It wouldn't "stop" ANYON'B who DIDN'T want to buy a house! That's the beauty of tho ad vertising way of finding a, buyer. Tho ad iltuls the buyer through the slmplo process of being easily and readily found BY the buyer!
