A disturbance In which considerable
property was destroyed ntvl sovernl Uvea
imdangerod was tho culmination Satur
day nlKlit of tho cclobrntlon of tho stu
dents of tho University of Vermont over
tho Dartmouth victory of ten to nothing
In tho afternoon. 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. Tho flru was, however, e.xtln
gutshed Iioforo the hose was cut and was
not rc-llghteil.

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

"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.
Gnge, and the executive staff consisted
ot A. N. Ijockvvood, business manager,
II F. Barton, musical director, B. A
Field, master of properties, with H. L.
Thompson In charge of tho numerous
electrical effects. A font tiro of tho per
formance was tlie hinging nt the be
