street nnd wns taking a short cut to Main
street a few rods towards the center of
tho city when he saw what appeared to be
tho body of a woman. Ho went to tho
police station, but findtng no one there
went back towards tho Placo looking for
an ofllccr. Finding Officer Curtis, he told
him that ho thought a woman had been
killed. Tho policeman gave little credit
to the story, but accompanied Jackson
and found tho body.
The woman was laying face down on
tho grass, her hands tied with her skirt
behind her back, while another pleco of
clothing was drawn tight around her
neck. There was a gag of cloth In her
mouth. The only clothing sno had on was
her stockings and shoes and her gloves,

a short distance. Her clothing had been
literally torn off.
Her husband was found at his
homo about 10 o'clock this morning.
He went to Mr. Davis' office and said

then, saying she was going to tho
pictures, left the house. Mr. Broad

Montpeller, May 2. The case of Mary
Ethel Button vs. Worthcn Button, libel
fur divorce, camo to a sudden stop
Thursday afternoon and shortly after
ward W. G. Knight, one of the principal
witnesses for the plaintiff, was lodged
In Washington county Jail on a civil
process, charged with alenlation of affec
tions, the claim being made by Mr.
Button, the defendant in tho suit.
Papers were served on Mr. Knight whllo
he was carrying the plaintiff and her
witnesses to their homo Friday after
noon. He was driving his automobile
near East Barre when ho was stopped
by Deputy Sheriff H. T. Slayton, who
served tho papers on him and then In
stead of giving the man a chance to carry
his party home, only allowed him to
drlvo the machine to the side of the
road and brought the man to the county
Jail. The suit Is to recover $10,ono.
Knight did not try to secure ball that
The suit brought by Mrs. Button is on
the grounds of Intolerable severity and
her witnesses tended to show that she
had been abused, but when her case
was completed tho court did not hear
further evidence and It looks as though
the caso would be continued or dis
missed. The caso of John A. Parker vs. the
estate of James Dcmerltt, one of long
standing on the docket, ns well as that
of estate of Mary A. Town vs. fhe estate
of James Demerttt, have been settled nnd
The case of H. W. Kemp vs. the
estate of James W. Brock will go to
the Supreme Court, It was announced
in court this morning. This Is an
action brought ns a result of the dis
appearance of a trust fund created from
the last will and testament of C. C.
Putnam In favor of Harriet Putnam.
When Mr. Kemp was appointed trustee
following a change In trustees he found
the fund hnd disappeared and he claims
that tho bondsman of tho former trustee
Is liable for the fund. Mr. Brock was
bondsman. He hns died and thereforo
it Is claimed thnt tho fund must ho re
placed out of his estate.
The Judgment In the case of Nichols vs.
Foley was entered on the docket this
morning In which the defendant really
wins, although the plaintiff is given a
Judgment for $25. This sum tho defend
ant admitted he owed it for wiring a
garHge, but that he had not received
any statement for the snmc. The plain
tiff brought suit to recover $196.88 on a
wiring nnd electrical Job. Thero was a
contract between tho two parties for
$92. this the court held covered all work
done, while although tho plaintiff
claimed the amount of the suit was duo
him for additional equipment. The
court found thnt none of the $196.88 need
be paid tho plaintiff except such part
as related to tho garage, which was a
$25 Job, some of which was In tho $190.88.

'Man with the Voice of nn Angel lint
with 4he Deeds of the Devil" I Onr
of the Jinny Choice Epithet Hurted
nt American Executive
Toklo, May 0. (By the Associated
Press.) The anti-American campaign In
the .lapanose press continues with re
newed force. Up to tho present no seri
ous overt acts have beon committed
against Americans or American prop
erty. Evldonco cxlets, however, that tho
newspaper ngltatlon, which has spread
to virtually all tho leading journals of
the empire, Is Inciting popular feeling
against America and thus paving tho
way to possible open demonstrations.
Representative Japanese deplore the
press campaign nnd havo begun to criti
cise tho government for its failure to
check tho literary outbursts on the
ground that they aro going bp far that
they are liable to engender ill feeling.
Tho participants In a mass meeting
held Sunday, at which some antl-Amcrl-enn
speeches were delivered, announced
their Intention of continuing tho demon
stration In front of the American em
bassy. The police, however, Interfered
and prevented this step.
Tho belief Is expressed here that the
basis for tho agitation la fear of the grow
ing Influence of the United States In In
ternational affairs, as evidence by her
position at the peace conference, and that
It will act as a curb on what are regarded
ns Japan's legitimate aspirations In China
and Siberia,
After declaring that renewed attempt
for anti-Japanese legislation on the Pacific
slope Indicate that the Americans perse
cute Japan in everything, while wearing
the mask of liberty and fairness, the
Hoch Shlmbun charges the Americans
with having Incited the Chinese to make
the secret treaties public and also accuses
American missionaries of fomenting the
Korean Insurrection.
The Yorodzu Choho Rays the Americana
responsible for nttempts at anti-Japanese
legislation are nothing better than
barbarians; that their actions are more
despicable than those of the Germane,
whose barbarities they attacked.
"Hypocrite," "Despot," "transformed
Kaiser," "man with the voice of an angel
but with deeds of the devil" are some
of the epithets applied by the newspapers
to President Wilson.
To-day's newspapers print articles ac
cusing Americans and British in China
with exciting the Chinese to the recent
Chinese-Japanese agitation in Peking,
based on the Japanese victory at the
peace conference on the question of
Shantung. The aim Is declared to be the
rooting out of Japan's superior rights In
China and substituting their own in
fluence. At a meeting of the Kokumlnto party
held In Osaka a resolution was passed
declaring that recognition of tho Monroe
doctrlno by the League of Nations should
be Interpreted as recognition of Japan's
predominance In the Far East.
