EVER GO TO RENO
New England Women, Now Seek
ing Divorce There, Number
75 or Iiess.
Reno, Nov., Dec. 3. Tho Christmas
4ason finds a mlnslInK of pleasure and
pathos, of Joy nnd K.-idness, of IlKht
hearted Bnycty nnd sombre henrtnche
among the members of the "divorce
colony" In Ileno. There are hero to-day
upwnrd of BOO mlsmated souls, SO per cent,
of whom are women, here for no other
purpose thnn to Hocure lepal freedom
from mnrltnl bonds nnd then to hurry
back enstwnrd, northward, southward,
westwnrd to the pccnes purroundlnn their
AmonK these. New KnKland Is well
represented, the Influence of Its early
Puritan days not sufficiently pronounced
In this latter nee of unfortunate mar
riages to withstand the divorce courts.
To the credit, however, of the rlymouth
Rock section of this nation, bo It said,
that from the New KnKland States come
less of the jray frivolous, yes, dlsreputnblc,
men and women seeking a divorce decree,
whose conduct, or rather misconduct,
has cast disrepute upon this serious busi
ness than from any other section of tho
There are notable exceptions, but os a
class, the people whose complaints specify
some Now Knclnnd city or town as
tho place of their family connections and
marriage arc less conspicuous by any
reprehensible social proclivities thnn those
from any other part of tho country.
This may ho simply a matter of coin
cidence: on the other hand, the moral
tore of New KnRlnnd life may have
mi.rh to do with It. Sufflco It to say
thnt to-duy there Is not a Blnslo man or
woman from New Kntrlnnd, ns far as
Known, amonK tho many here for this
one purpose, who Is numbered nmonfi
those who have thrown all regard for
reputation to the four winds nnd are
"flylnp hlRh" in the social Bwirl of the
pleasure seekers conspicuous in the
limelight of Ileno.
SUIUNK FROM LIMELIGHT.
However, this does not contemplate by
nny means that all of those from New
Knfrland nre devoting their undivided
time nnd attention to religious, ehnrlt
nble or reformatory work or keeping
themselves entirely within the confines
of their own home cottages, or the four
walls of their nbodes in apartment
houses or hotels. Mnny of them arc
familiar figures In public, on the streets
and In the shops, cafes nnd places of
While some avoid public attention nnd
tind occupation quietly with others of
their family who may be here with them,
within their modest little homes on a
'lulet street of the residential section of
the city, others find their diversion In
the saddle, nutomoblle, dances, theatres
and cafe dinners, the lntter the only
places in which to appen.se their love,
for music, outside of tho theatres and
With tho thoughts of Christmas and
the New Tenr approaching, those com
pelled to spend thtse holidays In Reno,
Z.fOi miles from their kindred nnd tho
r-cenes of former homo circles, rind
themselves confronted with n new ex
perience, strangely unique. In which past
vfiub, wnicn can never be forgotten,
loom up before them.
The women especially, as at no other
time, in a rain effort to forget, a deter
mined attempt "to make the best of It all
nnd bo happy," enter Into tho now life
of the West, yet realizing thnt not even
the bright, cheerful Nevada sunshine can
penetrate the overhanging cloud of a
broken homo nor render the sequel bright
er by contrast.
OVKIt 200 NEW ENGLANDEHS.
Thus Heno, with Its aggregation of
seekers for the little pieces of paper which
can sever them completely for all tlmo
from one whom they once loved and cher
ished, presents to-day a situation un
paralleled on earth.
In this some 200 New Engenders have
plnyed a part during the past two years,
while others are to-day occupying places
of more or less prominence In the continu
ous performance of untying marital knots
of the ill-mated from other States. Be
hind the glamour of assumed content
ment one finds a scene truly pathetic.
The Joy-rldlng In automobile or behind
a spirited tenm, or galloping with a. party
of companions in the saddle, does not dis
close the story of sorrow and heart break
ing which preceded such apparent care
free diversion, but a glance Into the moth
er's countenance as she fondles her little
child does, the recital in the witness chair
nt the court house of what finally hrought
her to Reno, often does, the little confi
dential chnt with n sympathizing new
found companion far from home does,
and the crucible of adversity Is full with
memories as the Thanksgiving passed
without the cheer of Its family reunion
and the Joyous chimes of the Christmas
morn and happy ringing In of the new
year herald anything but "peace and hap
piness." Hut to thore who with apparent seri
ous thought of ronsequences entered Into
marital relations nnd with equal In
difference seek relief In the courts, Christ
mas in Reno and Christmas In New Eng
land offer nothing In variance. Tho gifts
have to travel a greater distance, that's
They are having a good time, here ns
there, with no compunctions of con
science nor suffering from actions of
another to disturb their exacting dp
ninnds upon tho Goddess of Pleasure.
HETRAYINO IIOMB TOWNS.
There are between M and "5 women
members of the "colony" hero to-day
from various parts of New Kngland,
not generally known, either ns to their
identity or tho fact that they came from
those States. This is explained by the
fact that many aro determined to avoid
any publicity and resort to extreme
means to accomplish such Intention by
assuming fictitious names and giving
wrong names of homo places for tho pur
pose of misleading.
The Overland limited train, upon which
a great majority of them come, arrives
at four o'clock in the morning and they
go direct to the Riverside Hotel, whoro
they remain only that day and then dls
appear to some cottage or apartment
house, eeleeted frequently by their at
tomeya, to whom they are usually re
ferred ly eome eastern law firm before
leaving for the West.

"This action of the Central Vermont

The roads of Chittenden county nt the
present time, when work for tho season
of Hill ha.H Just been completed, nro un
doubtedly in tho best shape thc.v have
been since trails were first mndu through
the wHdernoBs Stnt. Itniid Commissioner
O. W. dates has been liberal In his appro-1
prlatlon of money for tho betterment of I
road conditions In this, the most traveled
rounty of tho State, nnd the results arc '
apparent to nny ono who does nny travel
ing outside of tho city limits. This Is all '
of considerable Importance to Burlington I
mid Is, moreover. In ono hciisc the city's I
due, .since Its contribution to tho State
road fund Is more than Jc.OCO, far In ex
cess of any other city or town. This 1
money consists of nvo per cent, of tho
tax on the grand list, and an Burlington '
leads the Stnto In that particular It con-
sequently lends In the amount paid 'nto 1
tho road fund. !
South Burlington, Krstx, Bolton, Col
chester and Milton are tho towns In
which thn greatest Improvements have
been made, all of which nre ojT a perma
nent nature. A traveler along thu Willis
ton nml lllnrsburg road would hardly
recognize some of the bad places which
formerly tormented him. The State nu.,
put In $:,C"l near the lOldrldge schoolhoufo
and made l.fdO feet of crushed stone road
way. Much has also been done there In
reducing the r.rade by cutting down the
hill and lining In. On litneaburg road, or
Fourth street, the State expended J1.S0O
In putting In crushed stone, and effectu
ally wiped out nearly a quarter of a mile
nf very sandy road.
The road between Burlington and Mont
peller ha.s been greatly strengthened In
Bolton, where f-',i;i) was spent mile and
a halt above the village In what was con
sidered by automobllls'ts about the worst I
place between here nnd Boston. There
was a stllf hill at that iolnt with a num
ber of bad turns which made passing dan
gerous. The turn ere largely taken
away and a large difference, mndo In the
grade. A number of rocks formerly Jut
ted out to the road's edge so thnt thn
passing of two teams was an Impossibil
ity and the load was little more than a
trail. Then,' were blasted away, about J-io'j
being spent In this task alone.
The sum of $J,(Ki was spent in the town
of Lsscx. but the work was more scat
tend and confined mostlv to ridding the
highways of several sandy stretches.
Crushed stone and gravel were put In
large qitnntitlex on the main road between
thu Junction and Colchester and tho work
carried right up to the Colchester line.
About $500 was spent near the old Buell

experienced at tills point with h'gh water
which swept parts of tlic road bed away.
It Is now believed that this trouble has
