carried out with great pomp.
In going to the Sistine chapel from his

As he stood against the window yester

claimed: "My tirst pleasure, w hen I can

garden w hich now confine my little world.
Heigho! llow shall I get on without my
long country tramps? How I shall miss
them and my sea!" Pope Fius wished to

manifested in the stock market today

lieve last iilitht that yesterday's demor
alization would be continued on an even
greater scale and several new failures
would be announced. While there was
distiuet and heavy pressure directed upon
ail securities, especially high grade and
Inactive stocks, causing several new low
records it was clear evidence that the
largest financial interests were putting
their shoulders to the wheel with a view
to preventing a panio.
Even in the face of heavy support and
much short coverings st cks melted under
the heavy offerincs to new low records,
but there was a leeling that the big men
had the situation under control. The re
covery of 1-2 points was made upon the
announcement that all the sheets had
passed the clearing houses ail right.

Stowe farmer Kal Victim to Lightning
Roil Agent.
Waferbiiry, Aug. 5. Fianlc I.add, a
farmer in Stowe, wants to see the light
niug rod men that visited his place last
week, lie also wants the note for $:loo
which he gave one of the men for work
doue. Mr. I.add was in town today and
gave instructions to the Waterbury Na
tional hank that he did not' want the note
paid, lie also consulted an attorney and
w ill take every possible means to regain
his money. He considers that he has
been swindled and wants the public to be
on their guard. Last week Thursday a
man signing his came as E. Wilson called
upon Mr. Ladd and after considerable
smooth talk drew a contract to put light
ning rods on Mr. Ladd's house. Mr. Ladd
states that the man said the rods wood
not cost him more than $5 or Sit in view
of the fact that he and some of his men
would probably board there.
The next day a man by the name of W.
Bentelitl called. Both men anted as
agents for Cole Brothers. The rods were
put up and when the work was done Bent
cliff gave a receipt for a $:J0O note civen
by Mr. Ladd, which he claims was the
cost ot the job. Later Mr. Ladd met W.
F. Harris of Stowe. Mr. Harris had
lightning rods placed on his house and
bam by the same parties. When they
had finished their work, $300 was de
manded as the price, Mr. Harris not
having signed the note, objected to paying
such a sum and finally settled the bill for
$50. All this Mr. Ladd learned after the
lightning rod men had gone away. He is
now trying to make connections with his
note and the smooth talkers.

Morrisville, Aug. 5. For the past week
or more the residents of Laporte and Ran

been entertaining missionaries of a varie
ty hitherto unknown in this vicinity. Two

Lake City as their home, are holding
meetings at the home of Mr. Iladlock on
Laporte road and at the home of Mr. Sul
haui, w ho occupies the Frank Spaulding
place on Randolph road.
These young men are going about their
work in a very quiet manner. No general
notice of the meetings is given out, but a
few families are invited in to hear the
doctrines of .Joseph Smith and Brigham
Young preached. At each meeting they
give away Mormon literature and inform
their hearers that Mormon bibles can be
bought very cheaply by sending to New
York city. The young men intend to stay
in this vicinity until winter.

Montpelier 8-irred lp Over Station Agent
Lang Itemoval.
Montpelier, Anif 5. The reasons for re
lieving Station Agent Lang at the Cen
tral Vermont depot are still uuknown, and
various rumors are in the air. One is that
it was due to a kick from the granite
shippers. Several of the dealers have
been interviewed aud while they say thev
have had cause for great complaint against
the service they have been receiving, they
do not attach any blame to Mr. Lang, but
believe the trouble Is due to lack of rail
road help to do the work. All the ship
pers speak in the highest terms of Mr.
Lang and several are talking of making a
protest to St. Albans. . Mr. Lang has ad
vocated a larger force to do the work, but
has never been able to get it.
Today a new freight train made its
appearance. I he belief is expressed that
this will cause more satisfaction. Mr,
Lang has been offered the station at Ran-
doldb, but it Is said that Ie w ill not de
cide for a week or so until after the trans
fer of the local station is completed. Prob
ably no agent has been as popular as Mr.
Lang and there is considerable feeling
about town over the matter.

Graniteville Boxer Won
Andy Watson, Colored, of Boston,
.Was Opponent of the Ver
mont Mm..
Montpelier, Aug. 5. Si.x hundred men
gathered in Armory hall tonight to wit
ness a so-called athletic exhibition, the
principal event of which was a ten-round
sparring contest for points between Frank
Dunn of Graniteville. light-weight cham
pion of Vermont, and Andy Watson, col
ored, light-weight champion of New Eng
land. W. II. Brown of Hardwick was
referee and gave the match to Dunn in the
fourth round on a foul amid loud cries of
Frank R. Dawley of Bellows Falls and
William Hooper of Montpelier put up a
pretty-exhibition, -which was scheduled as
a five round contest but Dawley was
knocked out in the third round. The oth
er events were an illuminated club swing
ing by John E. Lelatid and a sprightly
boxing match between two lads. Burke
and Jackson. The hat was passed for
the kids and $9.50 was collected.
The big event of the evening did not
start until late. Dunn weighed iu at 172
pounds, having the advantage over Wat
son of over 30 pounds. Arthur Ross and
Jerry Donahue acted as seconds for Dunn,
while William Hooper aud George Serib
ner oliiciated hi a similar capacity for the
colored man.
The mill was short and the crowd was
dissatisfied. The first round was occupied
cuieny in ieeimg around and no heavy
hitting was done. Both showed them
selves pretty well up in the art of boxing.
ilia second aud third rounds passed near
Iy as quickly and about as tamelv.
The fourth and deciding round was only
a minute and a half In duration. Watson
struck out; but bis blow evidently went
lower than he expected. A look of dis
tress came over Dunn's face, and Referee
brown called a foul and awarded the mill
to the Graniteville man.
The crowd set up a howl but the man
agement insisteil that there was no fake,
that the men had never seen each other
before and that they did not know who
the referee was nntil they stripped for the
The two fighters divided f 150, sixty per
cent going to Dunn and forty to Watson.
Another mill of the evening was a short
and sweet set-to between George Cavbo
and an uuknown novice who quickly threw
up the sponge. The latter admitted that
he never had worn a pair of gloves before,
and the crowd agreed with him to the full
est extent.
