For seventeen onsecutiva yars Barre has had a course of highclass musical and literary entertainments under the auspices of the Barre Entertainment association. In the course have appeared nearly all the leading loum lecturers of the country and many musical treats. They have been of an educational value impossible to estimate. The which It is dif-eoi;tinu- auoe of this course wonld we great loss to this community. belleve be a It is fur- nihingtour people intellectual treats which it would be impossible for tlipm to secure without a much larger expenditure of money if the work of this association should be discontinued On season tick ets the average admission has for ail thrse years been less than 25 cents for enter tainments which In the large cities would cost from 75 cents to $150. This low price has been possible only by the co-operation of a large number of our citizens. No member of the association or any fa cial has ever received any remuneration for services rendered and at ni time has any complimentary tickets been given away. For fourteen years the association met with financial success. At no time during those years was th'ere a time when the year's receipts did not more than pay the expenditures. During ttiese earsa hand.-onie surplus was accumulated. Things are, however, different now. During the last two years there have been large deficiencies which have ben paid from the accumulated surplus of the asso ciation. It now looks as 11 tuis year s course would be the larguht financial fail ure of any in the history of the associa tion. The executive committee and directors have arranged for the year what they be have to be one oi the best courses ever given in Barre and the following figures Will tell the financial part of the story. Expense of eight entartalunients,s1l,2!)0. Season tickets sold, $(51S 50, Admission to date,$'.U SO. Total receipts todat, $739.80. Deficiency to date, $540.20. L nles s the next fix" entertainments receive better support from yon we shall have the largest deficiency in tair history. Unless the cmir.-e shall receive the general support which it once, had its days of influence are past and its work must stop. It is for you to say ! Do you care to hear Frank R. Kobersoti, who gave us last year the best illustrated lecture ever given In Barre? Do you care to hear such able congress men as Charles B. Sanders and Champ Clark? Do you care to hear the able di vine, Dr. Newell D. Ililles or the greatest entertainers in the country, Rogers and Grilley? Or would you like to bear the greatest musical treat of the season, the Boston Ladies' Symphony Orchestra? If so give our course the patronage and gup port which it merits. Season tickets are now on sale at the office of G. Herbert Papa or may be pro cured from any member of the executive committee upon application. Admission tickets will be on sale at the Red Cross Pharmacy before each entertainment. Hoping you will lend the association your hearty support, we are G. Herbert Tape, R. S. Currier, Rev. B. C. Roberts, Executive Committee. GODDAED WEDDINGS. Two' Soul Sisters of Fairfield .Harried, One to a Goddard Graduate.

YHOLESALE DEALERS CLOSED THEIR SHOPS Both Mr. Zankoni and Mr. Sampici Went to Montpelier to Interview the State's Attorney. . After receiving the notice from the state' s'attorney of Washington county that they must not sell liquor In quantities under one gallon except to holders of li censes, the two wholesale liquor dealers of this city, Angelo Scampinl and Charles lUnleoni, decided to close their places of business, and this forenoon their doors were locked. Jqst what the outcome of the order will be is uncertain. The wholesalers claim that they cannot make their business pay if the right to sell by the In t. is cut i ff. Mr. Scampinl returned last evening from Boston. and he, with Mr. Zanieoni, went -to' Montpelier to day to interview Mr. Bailey regarding tke order. If the order is to be sustained they will probably ask the state's attor ney for permission to st-U out the stocks of liquor which they have on hand. When the two wholesale dealers saw Mr. Bailey at Montpelier this afternoon the latter simply repeated his explanation made Thursday evening. Messrs. Scampinl and Zanieoni en quired of the license commissioners what the cider meant, and the latter informed them that if the wholesalers attempted to sell after getting Mr. Bailey's notice they would be prosecuted.
