In tho nffrny many wero Injured, snmo of thorn seriously, nnd several others had narrow escapes. Tho student body enmo down In much tho customary manner early In tho even Ing, organized for a night shirt parndo iind hemled by the linnd. Tho main streets of tho town were thoroughly covered but no serious trouble arose until a bonfire was started shortly after nlno o'clock on tho city market grounds. For tho flrn any kind of property which was mov able was procured. Among tho articles which quickly disappeared In tho flames wore n number of step ladders, belong ing to O. n. Stone, itorao lumber and Uher paraphernalia which wns found icneath J. F Hurko's blacksmith shop, nnd signs too numerous to mention. Two wagons, ono belonging to tho National Biscuit company, had narrow escapes, us did some other things. Meanwhile the flames had crept higher and higher and the stiff south wind, which prevailed, sent the sparks flying right and left, over Smith's livery stable, the garage of the Vermont Motor com pany, In which Is always torcd n quant ity of oil, nnd the storehouse of the C. I Smith Feed company, which Is filled with hay and other combustible ma terial. A spark lighted In tho Vermont Motor company's garage and a small fire was stnrted. This was extinguished by some of tho help, but tho flro depart ment wns called out as the danger had been mado apparent. Chief Nllcs and five men went over with the hoso wagon nnd laid a lino of hoso fmm tho hydrant at the corner of South Wlnooskl avenuo and Collego street. No sooner was It down than It was torn away from tho hands of tho firemen. Chief NHes spoke to tho crowd, which by this tlmo occupied the entiro street and every available spot. IIo told them of tho danger of allowing the fire to continue and said that they were going too far. Snmo of tho students saw tho strength of tho argument and called to the others to allow tho firemen to lay the hose. This tlmo a hitch was made, around n telegraph polo so that It could not bo torn awny and tho water was turned on. Seeing that the hoso could not bo taken, some of tho students began cut ting the line. Two lengths were cut so that they are useless and In tho mlx-up one was stolen. Tho hoso Is worth nbout Stn a length, so that this bill alone amounted to Ji:0. Chief Xiles discovered one man at work on the hoso and at tempted to arrest him. Tho chief dragged the student for a few feet when ho was set upon by the mob and thrown to the ground. Capt. Cnrty and somo others went to his assistance and wero likewise thrown. While the chief was on tho ground somo ono kicked him and although it Is not thought ho was serl c usly Injured ho was very Inmo yester day. Tho man escaped In Uio mix-up. A block away. Deputy Sheriff Todd wns engaged In much the samo manner. An attempt was mado to tear up his fence In front of the Jail. Mr. Todd attempted to save it and was also Jostled about Sfvcrely.

About 0:15 o'clock Mr. and Mrs. Pratt retired and It was nbout 10;I0 o'clock when Mrs. Pratt wns awakened by tho crying of n baby and upon looking out of tho window on to tho piazza saw tho little ono lying thero. She awakened her husband who sent word to tho police. Shortly after ward Officer Wardwoll arrived with Selectman F. E, Blgewood. Tho child was then ordered removed Into tho house. The baby was very well clad In u new dress nnd coat and was wrapped In a lap robo and woro a bonnet. Besldo the child lay a handbag which contained moro clothing nnd u nursing bottle. It Is very evident thut tho party who left the child had gono to some little cxpeno as the clothes In which tho child wai dressed and thoso that were In tho hand bog Were practically new. Tho child's clothes wero very dttrty, nnd the child had all the appearances of being starved. The 1'ip robe was of n dark green shade an 1 showed sumo signs of wear. The llttlo undershirt was tho only garment that hnd any tng which showed tho make cf the garments. This shirt had "Baby Hell' stamped upon It and this with the lap robe Is the only possible ovide.nco upon which tho authorities have to work. The child Is a very pretty boy of from tin days to two weeks old, has light curly hair and dark blue eyes. Some of 1 ho clothes hnd tucks taken In tho sleeves nbout two Itichc") wide. There vv.ih ono Inmr drp's and one short dress In the handbag, besidis other wearing apparel and a paper of about a dozen safety pins. Selectman F. E. Blgwood and Health Officer J. G Thnbault went to tho Pratt home Tuesday morning and found the child looking very much improved after hnving been fed and given proper care, Arrangements were made with Mr. and Mrs. Pratt to take care of the baby for a few days when arrangements will have hren completed to have tho little one placed In nn orphanage. Whether this child was placed on the ('nor.te") by some one who had driven by the place or whether the person was on font could not be learned from Mr. and Mr. Pratt as they had gone to bed and heard nothing until tho baby began to cry. The homo of Mr. and Mrs. Pratt Is at the top of the hill at Hood's cross ing, a little red house to the right of the road. The house Is near the road, nnd the piazza Is on the shaded side of tho house, and this made It very easy for any ono to step Into the yard and lay the child on the steps without causing much notice as the nearest house Is fully 00 feet nwny. There Is a street light at the crossing and tho next, which Is about n 32-cnndle power Incandescent light, Is in front of the homo of Mrs. S. II. Weston, nnd tho piazza Is shaded from this! llht by the trees. SCORED ANOTHER SUCCESS. "The Ispiihnn Riut." Clever Comedy. l'rrneiited by ColleKc Ilojn. "The Lpahan Rug." given under the auspices of the Wig and Buskin sciuty of tho university at Tho Strong theatre Monday, aids still another si'cccs. ful production of an original play written hv an undergraduate. It Is a delightful comedy, brik In action, witty In dia logue and with every part a good one. Tne amusing story concerns the struhgles of different people to get po. ession of the rug. First of nil there Is Sevvnva Antnar, the man Horn the cast, an International criminal, who is after the priceless rug; then there Is Theodore Burns, who i anxious to In sure It; there Is Mursden, thu cub re porter, nnxlous to get a story about It; and llopkinvon Brown, who Is trying to steal It for a practical Joke. And they all meet, the purpose ot each la discov ered, the rug Is Insuied, the criminal ap prehended, and the cub gets his story and the girl. Thero aro many amusing scenes In tho play. The editorial room sccnu of "The Blade" was full of action, and the neroplano with Its two passengers croat ttl a genuine sensation, dcsplto a slight mishap to the rigging which prevented tho lull effect as planned and which has worked without a hitch at the pre vious performances. There are some capital parts In tho pl.i. Mr. Ttittlo played, with his usual facility, the loquacious Theodoro Burrs. 1 1 if- scenes with the waiter In the lir.'l t'Ct and Ills' Insurance "spiel" uruu. id roars oi laughter. Mr. Tattle has fine ability and he never acted more easily or more naturally. Tho difficult role ol Se.vpya Antnar, tho man from the east, was portraytd by Elluj Lyman, Jr., a role entirely different from those he has prcliiily flayed In tho college plays. lie acted with vigor, with ln-ti'ii'-enesh nnd with flno effect, and ono regretted thai tlicru was not moro of the part. Donald W. Elpper as Edward Dallas ami Paul Krusc as James Brookes acted with spirit the piirts of reporters on "The Blade." Elpper v,-iih especially good In the scene In the collego inn. Marsdeu, tlie cub reporter, wns manfully acted by E. Hamilton Dutchcr, and Burton A. Field played llopklnson Brown In the light spirit. Roswell F.mihiin, In the part of Evelyn Douglas, made a stunning girl, and Curtis M, Hitchcock ns tho vegetarian Mia. Harvey was amusing. Guy W. Powers, In three distinct characters, was capital, playing the obsequious waiter at tho Inn, a reporter on "The lll.ule," nnd the owner of the rug In the last act, The remaining characters were well done by I .nil W. Waterman nn the city editor, It, W. Slmonds and A. J. St. John as re porters, and R. L. Gibson as i wireless operator. Thero was In fact not a weak spot In the enst. "Tho Ispahan Rug" will rank with "William Warren's Welcome" nnd "The Bachelor Cure" ns an amusing, bright and brisk original comedy. The play wast staged under thu direction ot Harry E.
