Supremo Court convened this morning In Its second week of the May term. Tho work of the trial calendar went along with rapidity which Indicates that the attorneys must watch their cases in spite of the fact that all of those in which there were unwritten opinions In Justice Hasolton's hands have been set nt the heel ot the calendar for re-argument. The first case disposed of this morning was the Essex county case of William H. Rlggic vs. tho Grand Trunk Railway company, In which H, B. Amcy, attor ney for the plaintiff, asked for a stay In execution that he might prepare the papers to carry the case to the Supreme Court of the United States. Ho ex plained that he. had not had time to read the opinion and nsked for CO days. Tho grounds for taking It to the higher court are that negligence was shown and that is a question fop the Jury to pass upon and not tho Supreme Court of Ver mont. In the lower court a verdict of $2,000 was given tho plnintlff, but tho Supreme Court reversed that judgment. In Washington county a stipulation was filed In tho case of Herbert Llntott vs. C. H. Utley, also a petition for a now trial. The Judgment was vacated, peti tion for a new trial granted, and cause remanded which carries tho case hack to Montpeller city court. Other cases dis posed of this morning were: Orleans county: In re Mary St. Ongo and Eugene St. Onge; .1. II. St. tinge, relator, habeas corpus, which was sub mitted on briefs. Caledonia county: Dane vs. Bean, con tinued bocause it was stated that domes tic affairs are such that It did not ap pear wise to argue tho case this term, Orange county: Salisbury Bros. Fur niture company vs. Eureka Lumber com pany, a stipulation which disposes of tho caso was filed. It provided that a pay ment of JIJXO bo made the plaintiff, set tling the ease. E. H. Mason vs. Georgo Sautt was submitted on briefs, Windham county: E. W, Gibson vs. Car men Stowcll was submitted on briefs. Windsor county: State vs. Elliott fur nshlng. submitted on briefs. In J. M. j Madden vs. F. G. Spauldlng thero will bo no trial nnd a motion for a new trial Is to bo argued In the lower court. Following tho advice of flic Supreme Court made lust week relative to the dls opsltlon of cases which were In Justice Haselton's hand unwritten tho following j cases are to be submitted on briefs: Wind. ham county, Carpenter vs. Central Ver mont railway; Addison county, in re estate of William A. Lawrenco Alma Whalcy and Arthur O'Brien, apts.; Chit tendon county, M. L. Powell vs. estate of E. F. Moore Is continued. At 10:30 o'clock thero was no case ready for argument so a recess was taken until two o'clock In the afternoon when the arguments wero commenced In tho Windham county caso of Edward J. Lavello, administrator estate of Peter Lavclle, vs. Central Vermont Railway company. In the lower court tho plaintiff received a verdict of J7.562, the caso com ing to Supreme Court upon the exceptions of the defendant. THE DAY OF RECKONING "A quaint sort of feller came along hur yesterday in a motor car, nnd stopped In front of the gate," related Mr. Oap Johnson of Rumpus Ridge, Ark. "Ho asked If he Could get n drink of water, and I snld, M reckon !' Ho wanted to know If I could tell hlni how fur II waa to Tumllnvllle, and I said 1 reckoned there was fourteen. He Inquired If It was going to rain, and I answered that I reckoned It was. Then ho grinned at mo nnd says 'This seems lo be the day of reckoning,' and 1 said, 'What say?' Just like that. Ho grinned again, nnd drive on. Something sorter funny about that feller, and still he didn't 'penr to bo precisely ernzy. Mobby he was one of them Gor man proporganders, or something." Judge. Readers or this newspaper are ad readers and for an Increasing number of them tho clasaltled columns are galn lug In lnt TO BE REOPENED SOON Expert and Assistant Secured by State Board of Health to Re sume Investigations and Care for Patients Afflicted with Poliomyelitis Within a few days the research lab oratory for Infantile paralysis at tho University of Vermont, closed slnco last fall because of tho difficulty of finding nnyono fitted to carry on the work, will be reopened, and the research work will continue under tho direction of Dr. W. L. Aycock, who Is now In the Post-Graduate hospital In New York city, hut has been secured by tho Stato Board of Health to take up the research and diagnostic work In poliomyelitis for tho Stato. Ho will come to Bur lington soon. Tho Stato Board of Health also has secured tho services of Miss Bertha E. Wolsbrod of Luthervllle, Md., to take up tho work of after-care In Infantile paralysis cases. Miss Wolsbrod already has arrived In tho city and will begin work at once. She hag had long ex perience ns a nurse nt Johns Hopkins and has Just returned from France, where Bho has Berved as a Red Cross nurse for Beveral months, having been In many hospitnts throughout France. Miss Welnbrod Is a pupil of Dr. Rob ert Lovett of Boston, ono of tho most eminent specialists In America on tho treatment of poliomyelitis and she -was employed In this kind of work before going overseas. Sho will tnko up the work formerly done In the State by Miss Rebecca Sclfrldge and Miss Helen King, who wero In tho city last year. Miss Wolsbrod will begin conducting clinics In Burlington next week. Later, sho will go to different parts of the State, holding clinics in the larger cen ters and visiting Individual patients in tho smaller towns nnd communities. Sho will make her headquarters In Bur lington at the ofllce of the'State Board of Health. Dr. Aycock takes over the work at the research laboratory which was formerly performed by Dr. Edward Taylor, who Is now In Johannesburg, South Africa. Dr. Taylor left tho work here last fall, and during tho winter the laboratory was closed because, on account of the wnr conditions and tho great call for specialists of this kind, It was found practically lmposslblo to find a man who was fitted for this particular kind of research work. Tho whole program of work on polio myelitis began In this State following the disastrous epidemic of 1914, and has been made possible by a private donation. It will now be carried on to tho fullest extent through the addition of these two trained specialists In this line, Dr. Aycock nnd Miss Wclsbrod. It will now be possible for the board of health to continue tho work with crippled cases and also to assist the physicians of tho Stato to make diag noses in nny cases which may occur. The research laboratory at the univer sity, of which Dr. Aycock will have charge. Is under the direct supervision of tho Rockefeller Institute of New York. Several Important discoveries In rcgnrd to the dlseaso of poliomyelitis have been made at this laboratory, which is rated high among those of the coun try. Thero are no cases of infantile paralysis in tho Stato at present, but It Is felt that preventive efforts In this direction are always wise. It Is usually In tho sum mer that new cases of this dangerous dlseaso first appear, and there will bo concerted efforts made to keep It out of the State this year. Last year there wero only four cases of infantile paralysis In Vermont. Tho disease first appeared In the State to any considerable extent back In 1891. At that time, the Into Dr. C. S. Cavcrly of Rut land wrote the first comprehensive account of the workings of tho disease which had been published In this country. Later, in 1910, there wore a number of cases In tho State, and the big epidemic In Vermont camo In 1914, when there were hundreds of cases. As a result of this epidemic, thero are at present be tween 300 and 400 cases which are being treated for the after-cure, the work which Miss Wolsbrod Is to take up. BROKE JAIL. BUT RECORD IN ARMY SAVES HIM St. Albans. May 13. John Bean, or Bushey, as ho Is sometimes called from tho fact that he llvos with an aunt of that name, was arraigned before Judge ft. N.

He was sentenced to servo three months at the House of Correction and to pay a flno of $20.50 and costs.

Fight over Cow St. Albans, May 13. Tho case taken up In Franklin county court this morn ing was that of H. J. Stanloy vs. Smith B. Waite. This Is an old cnBe that has been docketed slnco July, 1918. Stanley claims that Walte sold some cows which belonged to him at a public auction, but Walte claims tho cows ho sold wero his own nnd he gave all those present at tho auction to understand that fact. At tho time of the auction Stanley seemed to agreo to this, ho said. Stanley Is rep resented by Attorneys W. B. Locklln and G. F, Ladd, while Walto Is defended by R. W. Hurlburt nnd M. P. Maurice. This Is not a Jury caso.
