P. Mills IRASBURG CHURCH DEDICATES 11 MEM ORIAL WINDOWS Exercises Tuesday Made Part of Greater Effi ciency Rally Tuesday was an important date in Iiasburg. It is not often that a country church has the distinction of be ing able to dedicate a memoria! window. Tuesday the Methodist church in Irasburg (leticateci cleven memorial Windows with ap propriate and inipressive services. The program was made a part of the rally for greater efficiency in the locai church in charge of Dis tri ot Superintendent E. W. Sharp of St. Johnsbury. The sanie day the annual meet ing of the; Orleans county fami bureau was held in Irasburg, and the two meetings brought a large num-ber of people to town and made Irasburg common look quite metropolitian with several hundred cars parked about the square. When the ministers and the farm ers of a county get togethert it means something, especitdly when it comes to providing the sump tuous dinner such as the ladies served at the town hall af noon and the chicken pie supper that wan served to a big crowd 4n tho evening. Former Govomor Bell u'sed " o $ay that one could judge of the pisjjeritv of a church by the con dition of the horseshed.s and their state of repair. If this is so, the church at Irasburg is one 'of the most prosperous in ci 11 this region, for it has a horseshed or gjirage of most genei'ous proortions and In first class repair. But it is not alone by its horseshed.s that the Metho dist church of Irasburg is judged to be in a live working condition. The pastor, Rev. Alfred J. Ward, radiates enetgy and helpfulness, and the building is a church home to be proud of. The church stands on the shoulder of the hill over ìooking a beautiful rolling country to the west and south, where the sunsets are a benediction to each departing day, and whose white spire points like a finger to the sky, typifying its purpose and high ideals. The eleven beautiful' memorial Windows that were dedicated are not the only marks of improvement and progress. A new bible adorns the pulpit desk, the gifts of the Willing Woi'kers class in Sunday school, and a new clock takes the place of the old one on the wall. The first of the memorial Win dows in the vestibule as one enters at the left is in honor of the sold iers of Irasburg, and at the right is (C'onrinued on page S.)

Finley of St. Johnsbury, State Highway OH'icer, Harry Dickens of Orleans and OH'icer Louis Morris of the locai force in conjunction with States Attorney James B. Campbell, struck a powerful blow . at highway lawlessness when they I dashed by automobile to High- ; water, P. Q., and returned last ' night with George P. Mills, one of the bandit trio who held up Mil ton .1. Warner, robbing him of his Lincoln coupé and about $120. I.yls Barribeau who held the gun on Mr. Warner at West Danville last Friday escaped from the Cana dian officers yesterday moming, but it i momentarily expected that Chief Finley's drag-net will etfect his capture. Chief Finley, State Highway OfTicer Dickens and Officer Morris comprized the American party who located the Lincoln coupé at Highwater yesterday. A Caledon-ian-Record reporter accompanied the officers, leaving St. Johnsbui-y yesterday afternoon at 2.00 o'clock. Canadian customs inspector, H. M. Clark, greeted the party of American. officers at Highwater, P. Q. The little hamlet of Highwater is- the next station beyond North Troy, Vt., on the Canadian Paci fic' raijway. Inspector Clark told the Anici' icans how George Mills and the lin coln coupé carne into the possesr-ion of the Canadian customs. Mr. Clark and two of his confreres wero on the ciuivive 10 miles up a back road fi'om Highwater before davbreak Tuesdav morning. They lay in wait, he said for a big Pierre Arrow that suppo.-edly bore a car go of liquor. It was about 1.30 Tuesday morn ing when Lyle Barribeau and George P. Mills carne along in the Lincoln coupé. Inspector Clark said it was bis bu-iness to cball- enge eveiy car anv attempt at "We ordered making certain ol booze-runniti"'. the Lincoln coupé to stop," Mr. Clark told the Amer ican officers. "I noticeli that Bar ribeau had a gun and I told my fellow offici t to look out. He went over to the other side of the car and Barribeau Iviiii'ed the gun over to him." Before the Canadian customs officers and the two bandits return ed to Highwater it was ò."0 in the morning. Mills and Barribeau were allowed to go to the Central House the only hotel in Highwater for a little sleep. They proniiscd the Canadian cu.-toms men that they would return to the former.-' office about 10.00 yesterday moining to explain matters. The only charge that the Cana dian customs men held agninst the pair of bandits was that of iliegallv entering the Dominion of Canada Mills and Barribeau had not re ported at either the L'nited States customs at North Trov or at the Canadian customs at Highwater. About 10 o'clock yesterdav morning Mills carne from the hotel to the Canadian customs otFicc. Barribeau did not come and a search disclo-ed the fact that he had made tracks over the bill to wards Jay. Yt. In.-pectors E .N. Draper and K. B. McKaye gave chase to Barribeau. They trailed his fresh footprints l'or a few miles j and then lo.-t trace ol' bini, ln.-pect- i or Draper told the American offi-I cers Barribeau could perhaps be ! found in Jay. Mills was incarcerateli in the "ciink" as the Canadian officers 1 cali it at the ('. P. R. rail'ond station. Mills was tiiere when Chief t Finley, State Highway Oticer ' Dickens and Officer Morris fou"d bini. The boy bandit, who said he was but 18 years of age, lay on a ì bunk, apparenth aslecp.

State Highway Officer Dickens and Chief Finlev negotiated with the Canadian officers for the re turn of the Lincoln coupé. Mr. Dickens told the Canadian officers the entire story of the hold-up at West Danville, clearly substantia ting the American officers daini to the car. Mr. Clark was courteous, but due to government "red tape," said he preferred to keep the Lin coln in his custody until Mr. Warn er called for it. Mr. Warner could not be reached on the telephone lato yesterday afternoon but his attorney was notified that the car had been locateci. Mr. Warner is expected to come for his car tomorrow. He will be accompanied to Highwater by some niemfcer of the St. Johnsburv police force, in co-operation with State Highway OfTicer Dickens. The bandit, Mills sleepy eyed was put in the back seat of Mr. Dickens' new Reo. The youthfui highway robber wore a gray heath er sweater. He had no overcoat. He pulled his cap over his eyes and slumued down between Officer Morris and the Caledonian-Record reporter. At North Troy, the American party stopped for a minute at the U. S. customs, where the olTicers peered info the tonneau and asked Mills about his parents. The boy told them bis father lived in Can ada, but where, he did not know. Lyle Barribeau, Mills declared, was the .-on of Ed. Barribeau of Gran by. Mills responded freely to iiies tions on the way back to' St. Johns bury. He took bis capture very calmly. "It's ad in a lifetime, I suppose," the mere youth ))liilo.-o-ph i zecl.

Mills exprossoil greti t surpri.e. He said the officer knew bini as they had often seen each other in Wor cester. The boy said nothing that would temi however. to indicate collu-ion with the police officer. "What is your regular occu;i tion?" he wa.--asked. "I used to be a plumbei-.
