Two colored men, who gave their names

Adnnw, bul who weni under other names
to other people, cane to town from some
whero Saturday mid attempted soveial
sorts of different flimflam games which
resulted In their an est Sutnkn noon
nt Alburg, when they were rn their way
to Montreal on tho Kugles' excursion.
Tho Held ot operation-- wa.( over a lurge
part of tho business footlon of the town
and piobably all of the work done by
them has not been reported to tho polio;.
One of the first stores visited was Cot
trl'l'.s Jewelry storo on College stteet,
and In addition to this they went to the.
Concord (Undy Kitchen, the store of W.
E. Peters, the llorlst, the pool loom of
Harry Ullloway and tho tailor shop of i.
At Cottrlll's they ostensibly went In to
buy a collar button ami tendered In pay
ment a ten dollar hill. Mr. Cottrlll, who j
waited on them, bernme suspicious th.it 1
they were looking for Ills money and louU ,
this method to Induce him to produce his
cash. He replied that he could lint,
change the bill. They then wanted to j
look at some diamond rings and although i
ho hail a stock, he would not produce j
them for the same reason thnt he did not j
show his money. Their net rcciuet v. is ,
for some field glnses and as the proprle-
tor was rent nine for some in ihe window,
he turned suddenly, and was In time to
see. one of tho men put a cane through
tho glass of n phow oasc, wher there
were some, valuable rings. The ileum Im
mediately put his bunds in. when Air.
Cottrlll told him to take them out. This
command was not at once obeyed and
the man continued to feel about the rings,
saying that hn was taking out the .glass.
He wn.s then told :nnt ho must pay for
the glass, but refused to do so. Finally,
it tho mention of police, both went out
of the store, and ns Mr. Cnttrill was go
ing to the door they dashed up tho street
nnd around a corner.
The ten dollar bill was In evidence In
nil ot the other places and here their
work was smoother and In some enses
more successful. In some of tho places
they worked alone. At the Concord
( andy Kitchen, one entered nnd tendered
a ten dollar hill In payment for some
chewing gum. lie, by this mems, pot
some of the firm's monev out and then
commenced to confute the clerk, first
claiming thnt he had received too much
money In change, and then, after much
counting and changing of thn bills from
one to the other, he went out of the More
with a five dollar hill to the pood lie was
careful to have no one watch him, and
when one ot tho clerks cam nlong
to look on, he was sent for a quurt of
Ire rreara at once. This was tho plan
pursued at the flower store and so
Mnoothly wns the trick done that In nei
ther store was the fact that five dollars
had been stolen discovered until the day's
cash was counted at night. At the '.lower
store so clever was lil.s ncttng thnt noth
ing was suspected, although he went back
tin en times.
At the tnllor shop the mini thought to
be Adnni.s, struck a clerk severely In the
mouth and was chased by the police down
through the alley wajs In the rear but
m ule his escape. He tried the same came
w to the ten dollar bill here mid tried to
contuse tho clerk, whom he asked to
press bis coat. P. A. Levin, the proprle
t .r, saw Into tho came nnd knew when
I e lost sight of the live dollar bill. He
spoke of the police and went after them,
telling tho clerk to hold the man. It
was hem that the clerk wns struck and

Would like to do something really hand

tnl for such an enterprise. Now comes
the news of a man, neither of Vermont
hlrlh nor residence, who without thought
of pecuniary leward Is willing to do for
Vermont something really handsome and
epilte out of the ordinary. He does not
purpo.se to give Vermont n railroad, but
he intends to treat Vermonters to an ex
lilhtlon of a far older variety of loco
motive power than most railroads now
The sporting fraternity knuw who t'hlan
Is. Most other people know him by repu
tation In a general way; hut for tho bene
fit of those who may not be acipialnted
wdtli this intctestlng personality it may
be stated thnt Fhlnn Is a horse. He Is
black and he Is about 15 hands in height.
He is a horso of gre'.'it beaut v of form and
action. He was brel by Arthur H. Park
er of Bedford, Mass., and was foaled In
190). This makes him seven years old.
I'hlnn Is a trotter-not a pacer, but a
Miuaro trotter and a very fast one. So
great Is his speed that a year ngn at
Cleveland, o., ho trotted one mile In one
minute, llfty-elght and three-fourths sec
onds. This Is a record. No other horse
that ever lived In any country' In the
world has ever trotted a mile so swiftlv.
To see this wonderful horse go at tho
wonderful speed of which he Is capable
Is a sight never to bo forgotten. His
present owner bought him for only $'i5,iiOO.i
I'hlan's owner is Cornelius K. G. Bill
ings of New York, Chicago and Cleve
land It was from both his father and
his mother that Mr. Billings Inherited
his love of horses. Mr. Albert Billings,
the father of Cornelius K. G. Billings,
was a native of Roynlton, Vt., and one
of his horses wns the mnre, Princess,
which he bought from J. M. Densmore
of Hartl.md, Vt. Princess, In her day
and generation, was fast. She trotted a
mile In twn-thlrtv and .she became the
dam of the great trottlng-horse, Happy
Medium. A beautiful painting of Prin
cess is one of C. K. (J. Billings s most
treasured possessions. Albert M. Bill
ings married Augusta Stone Farnsworth,
daughter of Captain Jonathan Brewer
Farnsworth of Woodstock, Vt. She knew
horses well and wns a good Judge of Mor
pans. Her father onned "the Ralph
Horse," a son of Woodhury nnd a typical
Morgan of the old stamp. While Prin
cess's history nnd antecedents are not
fully known. C. K. G. Billings, who I.s a
believer In tho vnluo of Morgan blood and
who Is a member of the Morgan Horse
club, Is conlldent that she carried much

not unlikely that he owes to them much
of the strength of limb and stoutness of
heart that enable him to mn'nt.iln for

For I'hlan also It will be a visit to the

ore no largo cities In or near the Stato

a good attendance Is secured At best the
attendance Is peit to be compared with
that at les-s Important nnd comprehensive
fairs which are held nearer to the large
cities. Each year the nmnngement of the

that n roof garden may be ndild with
small expense If It is desired The new
section will add about 5'J more rooms
to the capacity of the house and In
all will make about 175. Tho old din
ing room on the Cherry str?et side will
be divided up Into apartments And this
will add still more to the number of
