ot the hardest kind of baseball to win
l'ioni St. Johnsbury. The third con
test between these two teams the
strongest in this part of the country
is now being arranged for.
The g-ame opened by S. Johnsbury
with a run in their first frame ot the
first inning. Conner drew a base on
balis. Hoernle slammed out a three
bagger scorino' Conner. Conner who
ran for Hoernle was caught at the
home piate and SulKvan and Swan
fanned. This ended St. Johnsbury's
scoring for the 1G innings.
As the game warmed up and Sher
brooke fdiled to get a man around
to third base, a .feeling of bitterness
and disappointment grasped the
Sherbrooke players. Newton, an ex
cellent catcher and a hardworking
player, lost his head several times.
First, he blamed the umpire, "Ted"
Brown .of Sherbrooke for calling
balls instead of strikes wheri the
home team was in the field. Follow
ing an argument at the piate he used
abusive language to Woods of St.'
Johnsbury with' the result that
Woods of St. Johnsbury pavé the
Canadian a swift jab in the ribs.
The players intervened and Newton
took off' his catcher's outfìt and was
for quitting the game. But his fel
low players prevailed on him to re
sumé and he and Woods shook hands
and Newton went at the "ame again.
Att he end of the first half1 of the
8th inning the score was 1 to 0 in
St. Johnsbury's favor. Vaughan
sent a stinging grounder to first
which Slayton was unable to
handle. Vaughan started for second
and on a passed ball and a wild
throw to second, scored.
The game went the nine innings
without further scoring and into the
extra frames. From the tenth inning
on the contést was a- grueling one.
Everytime St. Johnsbury took the
field the Sherbrooke crowd started a
mighty shout and used every means
to rattle McMann, the clever Fair
banks pitcher. who twirled a magni
ficent carne. He did not allow a base
on balls and struck out nine men.

pital as a result of injuries received
late Sunday afternoon, when their
limousine Franklin car overturned at
the top of the Dole Hill in DanvHle.
The other occupant of the car, Bea
trice, tlK 12 year old daughter of Mr.
Bennetfl escaped without a scratch.
The party were touring through
the state and stopped in St. Johns
bury about 8 o'clock in the after
noon. After 'thev left everything
went ali right with the car until they
almost reached the top of the hill.
Here Mr. Bennett attempted to shift
from high into lqw and the differen
tial gears failed to match. The car im
mediately started down the hill and
landed in the ditch and overturn
ed. The car stonned just below the
sign board and had it fone much far-
ther it would have gone with ali its
passenpers over the steepest embank
ment on the road.
Being a closed car the occupants
were penned in and neighbors and
those in passing cars gave first ai(Jj
until Dr. M. J. Paulsen arrived. He I
gave them professional attention and
bròught the entire party to Bright
look Hospital. An examination dis-
closed that Mr. Bennett's left hand
was badly injured and some, of the
bones broken. Mrs. Bennett received
a bad scalp wound, nrobably from the
p;lass in the cai, and Mrs. Montgom
ery was badly shaken up. but as yet

Attempt to Hold Up Cary
Maple Sugar Co. Employ
. ee On Danville Road
When E. A.. Woodward, an em
ploye in the bòiler room of the Cary
Maple Sugar Co., was returning to
St. Johnsbury from North Danville
at about nine o'clock on Sunday
night, in the vicinity of the All
Wright Springs, he was held up . and
Early on Sunday morning, Miv
Woodward took a carriage from the
McGennis Livery Stable on Central
St., and went up to the home of H.
O. Ranney in North Danville, where
he makes his home when not at work.
For several years he has made the
trip every Sunday and holiday in per
At the end of the day, he had
started back to St. Johnsbury and
was Tassing a swamp just above the
All-Wright Springs when a man
jumped from concealment beside the
road and shouted at him to "Stop".
At first, Woodward thought the man
wanted a ride, and he pjilled up on
the horse. But the horse was a ner
vous animai and jumped forward,
and to that jump Woodward ascribes
his. life, for almost aimultaneously
the bandit shot at the carriage.
It is possible that the first shot
was merely to scare him, but the
horse kept runninj' at a breakneck
pace, and the bandit sent a fusillade
of bullets of which five penetrated
the top of the carriage leaving osi
tive evidencè of Woodward's narrow
escape. It was a miracle that Wood
ward escaped with his life, for the
lioles indicate that bullets passed
tiuoujfh ali pària of the top. He con
tinued his journey to St. Johnsbury
and turned in his horse.
Woodward, who rooms at the Y.
M. C. A., sayi that he Has no enemy
in the world, and that he. can think
of no reason why.he should be held
up unless it was for $15 or $20 that
he happened to have with him. It was
so dark that he could not recognize
the man's annearance, and the man's
voice was not used enougrt to ìdenti
fy him. In the future, he plans to get
a permit and carry a revolver with
him, and then the "other fellow will
get peppered first," as he said.

RUTLAND, Vt, July 12 Gov. Clement today issued
a proclamation refusing to cali the Vermont legislature
in special session to make possible ratification of the
federai amendment for woman suffrage, The governo r's
proclamation follows a conference
which he held at Washington recently

In giving his reasons for refusing
again to cali a special session Gov.
Clement said the proposed amend
ment clearly invades the constitution
of Vermont, that the present legisla
ture was elected before the question
of ratifying the federai amendment
has risen, and that the people of the
state have had no opportunity to ex
press themselves on the issue.
The governor proposed that the
matter be taken up by thè next leg
islature and urged that candidates for
election be required to declare them
selves on the matter.
