THE BARRE DAILY TIMES. BARRE. VT.. SATURDAY. JULY C. 1912.
A Dealer In Foreign Fruits , By LUIGI CONTA In lower New York there Is a sign "P. Martelli, Dealer In Foreign Fruits tnd Oil." One day a young man enter ed the shop and, seeing the proprietor working on his books, said to him in the Italian language: "Slgnor, I hare Just come from Na . pies to America to better my condition. I wish a position." . "I cannot afford a clerk. I wish could. I am poor at accounts. They bother me." "I kept books for one of the largest exporters of oil In Naples. I know all about bookkeeping." i, "That may be, but I have told you "my business does not admit of an as sistant" "Let me work for yon without pay, I have brought over with me a little money on which I can live while I am getting a knowledge of America. I will . serve you for, say, a year. By that time my money will be all gone, but I can then find a position with a salary." Martelli was much captivated with the proposition. He told the man, who gave bis name as Giovanni Micele, to take hold of his books and straighten them out If he showed that he knew how to do so he would teach him his business. He told Micele that his face was familiar to him. but he could not tell where he had seen him, to which Micele replied that nothing was more likely, since they had both lived in the same city. , Micele did not know anything about bookkeeping, but he talked very learn edly about Martelli's accounts and suc ceeded in confusing the merchant and showing him that his affairs were in much better condition than be bad supposed. Micele became a great fa vorite with his employer, and. with the former's assistance, the business seemed to Improve. It did not appear that the sales were larger, but some how or other when Micele took off a statement from the books he always showed an increased profit Indeed, so pleased was Martelli that he told his clerk be might draw $3 a week for salary. But Micele said that be pre ferred to stick to his contract and would not accept any pay for his work, Martelli lived In a room in one of the narrow streets of lower New York, When be left his shop after business hours he Invariably went to this sleep ing apartment alone. But one day, after drinking a bottle or two of wine with his clerk, he Invited Micele to go home with him and have a game of cards. Micele accepted the invitation, Martelli bought some more wine on the way, and during the evening the two finished it The wine came from California and is much stronger than the wines one gets in Italy. Martelli showed its effects. When be got tip from his seat to get some tobacco Mi cele slipped a little pellet Into his glass. When Martelli returned he was too drunk to notice it lying In the bot torn of his glass, and it was soon dis solved. Soon after he bad finished his glass his eyes began to look heavy, his bead sank down on the table, and he ,was tinconscioua. . Micele arose and began to search the room. Producing skeleton keys, he on locked everything that was locked and searched under the bed and In every nook and cranny. Unlocking the closet, he found an old pair of shoes. Thrust ing his hand down Into the toe of one, he withdrew a chamois bag, from which he poured a number of valuable diamonds Into the palm of his hand. , From the toe of the other shoe he se cured several papers, which he hastily glanced over and put them in his pock et Then be turned and contemplated for a few moments the senseless fig ure of bis victim. Taking up the glass from which. Mar ten! had drunk, he rinsed and wiped It, then partly filled It with wise. His next act was to carry Martelli to the bed, take off his outer garments and 'put the bedclothes over him. Then, putting out the lights, n left nun, In the morning Martelli awoke and looked about blm. Empty bottles and bis own half filled glass stood? on the table. He got off the bed, staggered to the table, took Tip his glass, smelled of It, sipped it and, discovering no taste, seemed relieved. Going to the closet he felt in the toe of one of bis shoes. . He started. Thrusting his hand into the other shoe, he gave a cry of an , guiah. Rushing to the door, he tried i to open it, but found it locked. He was looking for some other avenue of exit when he heard footsteps without the door was opened, and Micele, backed by two policemen, stood in the opening. "Good morning. Signer Fabroni." he said. "I shall have to trouble you to make a sea voyage with me to our be- , loved Naples. Slgnora Martelli missed some valuable diamonds, and at the same time her butler disappeared. He was traced to New York, and I was deputed to come over and bring him back. The government being interest ed in a murder case of which he is suspected, chose me, a member of the national police, to do the work." "I have been a fooL I knew I had seen you before. Now I remember you as you appeared In uniform," said Mar telli. "It has been worth my while to come so far, since I have recovered the treas ure you possessed yourself of when you murdered the traveler you waylaid on the road to Sorrento." A pair of bracelets were slipped on ' the captive, and he was taken to a ship that sailed the same day for Naples. ECZEMA ON LIMB ITCHED DREADFULLY Scratched in Sleep. Spread Rapidly. Cuticura Soap and Ointment Worked Wonders. Stopped Itch ing and In Less Than a Week Healed Entirely, Cost 75 Cents. 27 Whitney Ave.: Cambridge; Mass. "My trouble was eczema. It began by my hoae-supporter rubbing and poisoning the skin on my log just above the knee. The eruption was small pimples which itched dreadfully. When I scratched them tbey would scab over and they itched so nights that I scratched the scabs off in my sleep. Tbey spread rapidly. I used witch bazel, different carbolic salves but nothing did it any good until a neighbor told me how her hands were cracked open and bleeding and that Cuticura cured her. I had been to so much expense buying remedies that did no good that I sent for samples of Cuticura Soap and Ointment before using. They worked wonders. Tbey stopped the Itching and in loss than a week's time It had healed entirely, after using a full-sized box of Cuticura Ointment and a cake of Cuticura Soap, costing but 75c." (Signed) Mrs. "W. E.

Steamer Ticonderoga Hit in Thunder Storm Thursday Evening. Burlington, .Tilly 6. The steamer TI ronderoga, while en route to Plattsburg from this port Thursday evening, was p ruck by lightning off Colchester point.

The Advent of Canadian Premier Con nected with the Navy Question. London, Julv 6. Robert I Borden, Canadian premier, with his colleagues, I). Jiuzen, minister of marine; C. J. Doherty, minister of justice, and L. P. Pelletier, postmaster-general, arrived here yesterday afternoon. Lord Strath cona and many Canadians welcomed them. Mr. Borden is the most heralded colo nial visitor to come to London for years. The press and the public are making much of his pronouncement: "I stand for a great navy," which is interpreted to mean that Canada is prepared to make a handsome contribution to the British navy in the shape of two more dreadnoughts. Mr. Borden, however, is reticent as to the form m which Cnnadi an assistance to the mother country is to be ottered. Among the many subjects to be dis cussed between the Canadian statesman and the British government is that re garding the proposal of the Senate corn mittee in Washington that no ship owned bv a railroad shall be allowed to use the Panama canal. Before returning to Canada, Mr. Bor den intends to visit Paris, to discuss trade relations with the French govern ment and the question of steamboat connection between Canada and France.

Oyster Bay. X. Y.. July 6. That the Democratic platform adopted at Balti more was for "public consumption" niy ami that it cannot be put into opera tion was the position taken by Colonel Roosevelt yesterday. The former presi dent expressed the opinion that Gov, Wilson was a "free trader," and t'.en said: "Either the Democrats will, if elected, have to plunge the country into ruin by means of free trade or elsa continue the present tariff system and wink at their plattorni declarations and say that they were adopted for cam paign purposes only," Col. Roosevelt expressed the opinion that both the Democrats and the Re publicans had taken the wrong position on the tariff questions. "Both these platforms call for the rigid enforcement of the anti-trust law, and both are wrong," lie said. "! was the first and only president .that ever rigidly enforced the anti-trust law. Yft know that trusts have come to stav and that the only remedy is competent regulation. Col. Roosevelt positively denied that he had offered the vice-presidencv on the new progressive ticket to Judge Lin 'sey of Denver. "Last night it was Henev that thev had me picking out as my running mate," he said. "To-day it is LinJsey. I want to say that I haven't offered the vice-presidency to anyone. If the con vention nominate me for the presi dency it is not likely that it will aak my views as to whom it will nominate as my running mate." CONSERVATION OF WATER.

Plans for the new" progressive party, which were to have been made public last evening, have been withheld until Mon day. This action was decided upon by Col. Roosevelt following the discovery that most of the big newspapers of the countrv were planning to kutJre Yv ov.- row ilson, his family nud plans in their editions of Saturday afternoon cod Sunday morning. It was agreed that if the pi un of (lie third partv movement were to be cis closed vesterdav they might lie over shadowed bv the Wilson pubbcitv. So it was decided that the plans of Col. Roosevelt and his associates should not be revealed until Mondav, when thev would have a clear field and be assured of the publicity requisite to attract the attention desired.

Other details came out yesterday of how Chicago, in stead oi ;ew iora, was seieciea as tne meeting place for the Democratic na tional committee on Julv 15. at the sug gestion of Governor Wilson. Although several eastern committeemen had arrced upon New York, the governor asked that Chicago be selected after he had been advised bv southern and western com mitteemen that many members would be represented by proxy at New Y.'rk. Ihese men, he was told, could and would be present at Chicago. .Josephus Daniels of .North larol'na laid the case before Governor W'.'son. One-third of the committee will be represented by proxy if we meet in New York," he told the nominee.- "That wouldn't be right," commented -the gov ernor. "We want them in person. ho would hold those proxies?" "We don't know," said Daniels. "Then it won't do," said the gov ernor. Presently' the governor sent for Mr. Mack and suggested the change. The committee was canvassed again and Chicago was chosen. .. COFFIN IS BURGLAR PROOF. Harriet Quimby Feared Body Would Be Taken for Experiments. New York, July 8.

By Dr. Henry H, Vail, Woodstock. Prepared at the request of the com mission on the conservation of natural resources of the state of Vermont. Where does our water come from Even in Vermont most of our water comes from the ocean. The great spinal storms that are daily reported by the weather bureau at Washington cover thousands of square miles and thei winds bring clouds from the ocean to drop their burden of moisture on the land. It should be remembered that the ocean surface of the earth is three times as large as the land surface. The ocean is the great magazine of water that supplies the land however remote from trie snores, jjui me liumeuiuie sources of the water we use are wells, springs brooks and rivers. Jn an uninhabited region these sources would supply water entirely pure and Bafe. If the sources are dangerous in populated regions j is because of the action of men. It is now perfectly well known that many of the diseases most fatal to men are communicated from the sick to the well by means of infinitely small germs living organisms many ot wmch may live tor a considerate tune in water, These disease germs are so minute tha a thousand of theai would not if lair side by side extend across the period used in writing this article. They are wholly invisible to the naked eye and the finest microscopes are needed to dis tincuish one kind from another. They are 'in effect the seeds of disease. Sev eral kinds may be conveyed from in valids by water to healthful person and may produce in "them the disease existing in the patient, typhoid lever conies from taking Into the system ty phoid germs as certainly as wheat seed sown in the earth produces a plant. From a patient millions of germs are thrown out in the excretion. These, germs are more dangerous than are the drucs marked ' Toison in the apothe caries' shops, for there is no known anti dote for typhoid germs. If they are once lodged' in a man's body under cer tain conditions, a run of typhoid fever is inevitable. Since there are many kinds of dis ease germs that may be conveyed from the sick to the well by drinking water it is exceedingly important to secure the sources of water from contamination. The history of one case will make this clear. A village of some two thousan 1 inhabitants in ef.Jsont was suppli with water from a reservoir made bv damming a brook. This brook ran through farm lands. In one house wis a patient having tvphoid fever. It was winter and the excrements from the in valid were thrown out on the snow. By the melting of the snow the disease germs were carried to the reservoir, and were thence distributed to all the users of public water. Typhoid fever broke ent all over the village but was limited to those using the public water. Thus the epidemic was traced to its cause. The germs of one endemia disease were conveyed through drinking water from the mucoim membrane of an invalid to the bodies of hundreds, and of these many died. The carelessness or ignor ance of one person caused the death of scores. In this case the germs of disease were carried in surface water down slopes that were visible. But the water that falls in any re gion does not all at once run off as surface water. A large part sinks into the earth through the loam, the fijind or gravel and through the loose rocks, until it comes to some continuous un broken surface of clay or rock along which it slowly trickles until it comes to the open air as a spring. Some of this "ground water" is caught and held through the summer by vegetation; some is held bv the earth, maintaining it moisture, but a large part passes down to the impervious layer of clay or rock and runs, out of sight, carrying with it soluble matter from the soil and rocks and also carrying anv dlsense germs that have been scattered on the surface of the soil. It is therefore nec essary to guard not only the surface water in the form of brooks and rivers; but the ground water that finally unites with the surface water. Wells and springs are all fed by the ground wa ter. The clearing away of forest growth, the plowing and smoothing of the sur face, the draining of swamp places have all lessened the flow of ground water. On cultivated land the rain flows off quickly., A heavy rain floods th brooks, which quickly drop away to a much lessened body of water. Ail the processes of cultivation have tended to hasten the flow of water from the land. It is quite certain that the annual rainfall in Vermont has not materially changed since it has been inhabited by white men, but it is equally certain that the water flows off more quickly and the surface flow i greater while the ground flow is less. The swamps that borrow every stream have been drained, the lied of the streams have been straightened and the brooks nnd rivers are less constant m their now than thev were even half a century ago, Brooks that were mill streams fifty years ago are now nearly dry after long spells of dry weather; they are roaring torrents after a heavy rain, lhe con ditions that existed w hen the entire state was covered with a dense forest can never be restored. T,n winds will bring the water from the ocean as they have done for centuries; but the downward flow of the rainfall will In? rapid. This rapid drainage mav be modified and checked by the erection of reservoirs at convenient places near the beads of riv ers; but this expedient is costly. It is, however, the only method by which the water power of the state can be re stored, and at some future day it will be done. The continued prosperity of the state will demand it.- the future heat, light and power of the state lie in the streams that now down its beau tiful valleys. Most of the cities and villages of Vermont, as well as other states, have systems of sewage that emptv into the streams that flow through them. The water of the larger streams is therefore SHE SUFFERED TEN MONTHS Mrs. Blankenship Tells of Her Restoration to Health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg etable Compound. Topics of the Home and Household.

As so often happens at functions of the kind in England, the United State ambassador was the chief speaker. Aft er paying a tribute to Dickens, who ha said was recognized in America almost as soon as in his own country, Mr. Reid mentioned that he was one of a small number who remembered and participat ed in the farewell banquet to Charlea Dickens m the. old fourteenth street Delmonico's in Kew York at the closa of his second visit to America in April, 'it was a banquet," said Mr. Reid, 'not onlv to a great novelist, who had' written manv things about our people too near the truth to be popular at the time, but also, to a great editor in his own country, from great editors in tho country which he visited; and it wa. presided over by the greatest of them, n editor of immortal memory in th listory of the country which he served n its gravest crisis and in its grandest achievement, Horace Greeley. At his right sat Charles Dickens, and next to the guest sat a spotless chevalier in tha warfare of opinion that preceded tha tivu war (ieorge MIIiam Curtis, a, man of letters worthy to be associated with Mr. Dickens, and an orator worthy to speak on the same platform. There was a long list of representative mem bers of the profession, and all cordial and eager to make the honored guest fed welcome and at home as eager a if Jefferson Brick had never been paint ed from the life from the occupant of a Kew York editorial office.' Referring to the disregard, in the ab sence of international copyright, of Dick ens' moral right to the receipts from, the sale of his books, Mr. Reid asked: "Does anyone happen to remember tha precise terms of the British copyright account with .Mrs. ilarnet lieecher Stowe, for a novel that was read here almost as widely as some of Mr. Dick ens' and was credited with almost as great an effect on tbc progress of tha world- a work that was translated into all languages and sold in all lands? Can we see the settlement of the English copyright for the works of a poet named Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who sold here as widely as Alfred Tennyson; or of the similar account for the contribu tions to our common nolde English lit-' erature by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Wash ington Irving, Ralph Waldo Emerson, James Russell Lowell or John Lathrop Motley!" , The aniliassador thought it wiser to forget these mutual shortcomings and recall instead the spirit in which Dick '. ens dealt with them at that banquet at Delmonico's forty years ago, and his promise to have reproduced in every sub- .' sequent edition of Martin Chuzzlewit and of the American Kctes the words he used on that occafirn " a pledge most honorably kept by his family and pub lishers to this day. The spirit seems to me still of good omen for both Eng land and America: " 'It would tie better for this globe to be riven by an earthquake, fired by a comet, overrun by an iceberg, and aban doned to the Arctic fox and hear, th.ut it should present the Mx-ctaclc of ti'ose two great nations, each of whom hae, in its own wav ana hour, stren so hard and successfully for freedom, vver again being arraved the one against the other." Cottage life, which used to be a pic turesque feature of rural England, prom--ises to become a thing of the past. The cottages are falling into ruins and nj new ones are being built. This condi-. tion is a No having a serious effect on marriage in the rural districts. Bridal couples of the working classes cannot find homes and the orercrowd:ng has become so bad thafslum onditions are reproduced in the eountry, where spacO should be ample for ait residential re-; quirements. It is said that the owner of the land are declining to build on the ground that the newly enacted land taxes make the future of the holdings precarious. In Essex there are parishes where n marriages have taken place for fifteen years. . In other places a rural exodus ' is taking place on account of the con- . demnatim and collapse of the old cot tages. In the neighborhood of a smalt holding district of Berkshire several con-, pies were recently forced to take lodg ings in the workhouse tor want of cot tage accommodation. MRS. PENNYPACKER WINS.
