Flyiin, Ellas Lyman nnd C. Y. Brownell, tl'e recent rurcha.ers of the Otter Creek water power at Ver gennes, have Just recelvcil the deed of that property from Dr. Seward Webb. The power Is considered hy experts to be one nf the best In the State nnd the primary object of the purchasers was the pro tection of the Burlington Traction com pany. For the past few years the Traction company has been getting Its power from the Burlington Flouring company and H bar, not had a sufficient supply. When a plant Is Installed at Vevgenne how ever, there will be enough and to spare. An electrical engineer will be employed al once to make a pi ellmlnary survey with the object of ascertaining how to get the greatest amount of power out of the falls. It Is expected that the falls will devel op 3l horsepower In low water and fi,(in or 0,f) horsepower In high water. The new owners of the falls will build a sta tion at V.rgennes and Install three mo tors. The power will be brought to Rui llngton oer 7.', miles of wire. Three wires will be used and about poles. A distributing station will be Installed In this city at the car barns wheie the storage plant now Is. The generators from the Burlington Flouting companv and the American Woolen company's plants will be brought to the new building at the car barns. Two new motors will be required there to transfer the power to the above generators. The generator at the Flouring enmpifny's plant Is a 37.") kilowatt machine and will develop BftO horsepowe-, tho one at the woolen company's plant Is fi kilowatts anil develops V0 horsepower. The plant at Vergennes as It now stands consists of about 20 acres of land on which aie located the wotks of the llavl land Shade Roller company, a saw mill and several other buildings. The Havlland company will continue to operate under a lease. Wlslle the fir.st object of the put chase was ti ptotect the Interests of the Bur lington Ti action company and the prop erty will ultimately probably be turned oei to that eornpanv, V. F. Hendee snld yerterdny that the people of Vergennes would 1.. ml-en rare or and their needs supplied. After the firt-t obiect of the pur chase Is satisfied, namely, the ptoircllon of the Traction company, the people nf Vergennes ran have what power they want. Then power will be sold along the line between Vergennes and Burlington anil, lastly, power will be sold In this city. Dr. Webb has arranged to take lixi horse power for lights and power on his proper ty. He will use l.flifl lights Heieafter the car service In Burlington will bo ample and regular upon all ot. aslons.

THE PROPER PLACE TO LOOK. During tho moving a poi trait of one of the ancestor of tho Brent family had got lost. No one could find if nt either tho old or tho new house, and there was great consternation. William Brent, nged tdx, was offered n "treat," value not an nounced, for any hint that would lead to the return of the missing grandfather.

HOW TO ACT IN CASE OF FIRE Some Wnjs In Which n lll.ire Is Likely to tie .stnrtrd. (From Good Housekeeping.) Attics nnd closets are the breeding places nf many fires. An nttl Is gen einlly the asylum for all sorts of Inflam mable material, and ns It never Is prop erly ventilated It becomes a tire Incuba tor when the summer sun strikes the roof. Among the odds and ends that make up the contents of the average attic are old Miinlshed furniture, dry as tinder, rags, many of them giensy and ripe for spontaneous combustion, painting oils, llablo to take fire when the sun beats on the roof; broken toys and old clothes, the pockets of which mav contain matches. I Attics and garrets often have a teninrrn- ture of 110 degrees Fahrenheit, which Is the Ignition point for matches Floor sweeping under furniture or in a closet are liable to take fire spontan eously or from a flvlng match head. Sawdust used in sweeping flnois, If left In a corner whete theie Is no current of air to carry off the heat It generates, Is very likely to become hot enough to Ig nite Itself. A preiaratlnn advertised for sweeping erirpets Is composed of sawdust., imd and a mineral oil to give It color, touch er with tincture of benzine to give It odor. Fires hae frecpientlv tnrtd spontaneous! v from heaps of this ma terial. Greasy overalls kept In a tight wardrobe have been known to Irnite. The most dangerous closet 1" that un der a stairway, because Inflammable ma terials may hide there, nnd if a tire starts In It the best avenue of e-s-.ipe from up per stories Is cut off. Furnace ashes In the cellar have in them so much flue con! and litter that they nre liable to spontaneous cornhus. Hon if an open window permits them to get wet by a rain storm. The fine coal from the winter's supply may Ignite If w et. Playing with fire and matches by chil dren is n prolific source of fires In resi dences. One's alilllty to extinguish a starting fire depends upon Intelligence and clf control. If the blaze Is Just starting throw water on the burning material, not on the blare. One bucket of water will do more good If thrown on bv lmndfuls or with a broom than dashed on at once. A small fire may be smothered with a rug or blanket, or benten out with a wet broom. If you cannot put out the fire in a minute then give an alaim at once. Do not li'ave a door open when you run out to Klvo an alarm. If the doors and win dons are closed when a fire starts you may be nble to get the firemen there In time to put it out while It Is In only one room. The tire soon consumes nil the oxygen in a closed room and may die out If It gets no fresh air. After the firemen are called work at getting out the things you want most to save.
