The Guest House In Asia Minor.
The guest house Is a real Institution
In Asia Minor. It Is sometimes owned
by an individual, but Is usually the
common property of the Tillage.. To
this guest bouse, like the travelers'
bungalow in InrMa, every traveler has
a right, but as all bare the same
rights one may hare more company
than be desires. However, the bead
man of the village will usually ar
range matters for the foreign traveler,
" and the native guest will often courte
ously make way for him. In the guest
bouse Is one large room, in one part
of which our horses munch their hay,
with the drivers lying beside them,
while In the other part we spread onr
rugs and set up our beds and anlltnber
our cooking apparatus. Some guest
houses have two rooms connected by a
wide opening, without a door. In one
of which the animals and animal driv
ers sleep and in the other the pamper
ed guests from abroad. Dr. Francis E.

len, last of the Allen clansmen to be
tried, was acquitted vesterday of the
charge of having participated in the Cal-
roll county courthouse murder at ilills-
ville last March.
Allen had been charged with the mur
der of Prosecuting Attorney W. M.
roster. The jury took only half an hour
to reach its verdict, which was re
ceived by a demonstration from many
spectators. At the request of counsel

sheriff, the comraonwet-lth s attorney, a
juror and a witness met death at the

What If All Advertising Were Eliminat
In the September Woman's Home Com
panion appears an interesting editorial
on advertising, an extract from which
Can vou imagine what existence
would be like if -all advertising were
eliminated t ,
It would mean more than the ab
sence of advertising in the pages of pe
riodicals and newspapers. ' It would
mean that the grocer would not have
his name or his business printed over
his door or on his window. The drug
stores would not display the globes of
colored water. The minister would not
announce the topic oi hia next sermon,
nor. the wid-week, meetings, from the
pulpit. 1 here wouldn t even be eicn
posts at country crossroads, nor on the
street corners m towns and cities. .
"If you should visit a strange com
munity where there was no advertising
whatever, you would realize how abso
lutely dependent you are upon advertia
ing. If you wanted to go to a store,
particularly the best store, no one could
direct you, for that is advertising
word-of-mouth advertising, which is
sometimes as important and as valu
able as any other. Frankly, you would
find it practically impossible to live with
out advertising, although you might
manage to exist after a lashion.
"A mere child could tangle us. up in
about a minute if his insatiable curios
ity were directed to advertising. To his
first question we could promptly and
truthfully reply that a man advertise
to make money, ilut tor the next logi
cal inquirv, 'How does he make money
by advertising ' the answer isn't so easy.
Possibly the childish mind might be sat
isfied with the explanation that adver
tising increases the volume of business,
which is true, of cvmrse; nut it is neith
er comprehensive nor final.
"lou may follow it through ever so
many ramifications, and in the end you
will "find that advertising pays for the
simple reason that it renders a service
to you and me and to tne man and
woman next door.
"The great agents of civilization are
those which save time and increase the
comfort and convenience of people.
These are the things that make the rail
road and the many applications for elec
tricity the telegraph, the telephone,
light, power so enormously valuable.
Advertising belongs in the same cate
gory. There is no way of estimating
its capacity for saving time, for increas
ing comfort."
Duluth, Minn., Sept. 14. Business or
ganizations last night appealed to Gov,
Eberhart for troops to help quiet the
riotous outbreaks that yesterday com
pelled the street car company to sus
pend service after six car men had been
injured by strikers and their friends.
Five arrests were made but the police
could do little with the crowd that surg
ed around etch car sent into the down
town streets. Stone throwers were lost
in theNmasg and there were not enough
officers to drive back the attackers.
Mob violence flung itself up the Main
street and through the city, coming
from the west end where for most of the
week an ungoverned mass of men ha
dared the police and wrecked the cars.
Racing and swearing through the busi
ness section the mob stopped long enough
to uproot and destroy a starting station,
then pursued the employes but failed
to catch them and went on to meet a
cross-current at Lake avenue where mill
hands joined the west enders just as ii
car came into sight. The conductor and
motorman each received an awful thrash
ing, one being pitched through a window.
Then the crowd dissolved.
In the west end fi.000 men, boys and
women stood with missiles. A car would
clang into the crowd. The motorman
would put on all power, drop on his knees
in the vestibule and try to run through
packed humanity, but his trolley pole
would be pulled from the wire and the
crowd pouring through the car would
beat the car crew until in some instances
they had to be carried bruised and bleed
ing to drug stores. Appeals, demands,
charges and counter-charges were made
by civic organization heads and munici
pal officials. Business organisations are
appealing by wire and telephone for
state troops to quell the trouble. Gov.
Eberhart is hastening back to St. Taul
to look into the Duluth situation. He
may order the troops here.

Ia Case of Rutland County Man Who
Died Mysteriously.
Rutland, Sept. 14. The grand jurv in
Rutland count v court, which yesterday
reported five true bills found and one
not found, failed to find an indictment
in the matter of the sudden death on
April 22, of Carroll C, Patterson of Dan
bury, who was taken suddenly ill and
died under auspicious circumstances.
The bill, which was not found, had to
do with this case. It was against John
Doe and murder was charged, Pat
tison's death resulted in an inquest and
soon after parts of the man's vitals
were sent to the state laboratory of
hygiene at Burlington for analysis, the
examination disclosing strychnine in his
stomach. As the man had been taking
considerable medicine no one yet knows
whether his death waa the result of ac
cident, intent on his part or the deliber
ate act of another.
One of the indictments is against C.
A, . Hancock of Canada who is already
out on bail on the charge of fraudu
lent stock in a coffin concern. No ar
rests have yet been made under the
other indictments. The grand jury re
ported that the county jail was found
to be in excellent condition but inade
quate for the county's needs.

Barre Followers of Roosevelt Met In
Miles Hall Last Evening and Elect
ed Al. H. Gerhard As
1 Fifty followers of the third-party flag
met in Miles' hall last evening and took
steps toward forming what it is hoped
will be a permanent Progressive club.
The new organization starts with a
healthy membership roll, and one charter
member stated this morning that pro
visions had been made for the reception
of additional members before the dawn
of election day. Enthusiasm was rife
and before the Progressives started to
elect their officers several members of
the party had voiced their views on
the political situation. Among those
who contributed to the apeechmaking
were Rev. J. W. Barnett, S. D Allen,
Eugene Sullivan William Jack, George
W. Mann, Al. if. Gerhtrdt and Edward
" Dr. C. F. Camp presided and William
H. Duthie was elected secretary pro
tern. The chairman outlined the pur
pose of the metting and first submitted
the question of organizing the proposed
club to a vote. It appeared to be the
unanimous sentiment of the Bull Moose
men that such a club would help to
sustain interest in the campaign and
the election of officers followed. Al.
H. Gerhardt was elected president and
the following vice presidents were chos
en, first vice president, Wiliam Jack;
second, Ezra White; third, S X. Parker.
James S. Milne, jr., was elected to serve
as permanent secretary and W. H.
Duthie was appointed treasurer. The
executive committee comprises the fol
lowina; men: ' Noble S. Love, Fred C.
Eaton, Dr. L. L. Leonard, James M
Other meetings of the Progressive club
are planned and it is likely that the
newly formed political organization will
continue to give tangible indications of
its existence.

nt,N.H. Was Badly Hurl
Accident Happened Near Milton Two
Other Members of the Party Were
Caught and Were Injured
to s Small Extent. , ;
Milton, Sept. 14. At the same bad
place in the road where twice before se
rious accidents have occurred, the largo
Rambler touring car of E. J. Bouchard ,
of Claremont, N. H., turned turtle yes
terday and injured three of the occu

scions nearly all day. ,
The car was being driven at a slow '
speed over the section of road which
starts from the trunk line between Col
chester and Miltons and leads directly:
to Sandbar bridge. About one-half mile
from the "old red chimney" is a bad
stretch of clay road, narrow and rough.
The machine was in a rut and Mr. Bouch-,
ard waa endeavoring to get the car out
of it when the automobile slid off tho
narrow space between the rut and the
embankment. There is no guard rail
and the bank is nearly three feet ia
The heaw machine turned turtle and
pinned beneath it Mr. and Mrs. Bouch
ard and one of the children. Mrs. Bouch
ard would doubtless have been cut In
two by the running board, were it pt
for the roots of a tree which stood out
and caught the car. She received se
rious injuries to her head and body.
Whether or not she was injured inter
nally is not known.
The smallest child and her father,
who were also pinned beneath the ear,
were not injured so badly, their hurt
consisting mainly of cuts about the head.
The other daughter, 10 years of age,
ran half a mile for assistance and
brought help from a farm house. Dr.
I. S, Coburn was called to attend them
but could not arrive for some time, M
he was six miles away.
The tourists were taken to Skeels' ho
tel in Milton, where they will remain
until they have recovered sufficiently ti
resume their journey.
