Because of Breakage at Power Plant

tiunibei of stoneshcdn wer- paralw.el tor
the uiiv. Jn ia:'l. all of the concerns
depending upon the Consolidated com
pany alone for power were obliged to
suspend this morning shortly alter '
o'clock. The power company reported
tlint an accident had happened to
one of the pumps in use at the Montpe
lier station and that it would be noon
before the break could be repaired. La
ter it was learned that the repa'rs
would take longer than was at first ap
prehended. ' Consequently the sheds will
probably remain closed until to-morrow
Plants affected bv the accident are
(located at the south end, in RurnhamV
meadow. Depot square, and at the north
end of the city. In all, it is estimated
that nearly 1,000 men were compelled to
lay down their tools for the day. When
the water is too low for the Consoli
dated company to generate its power en
tirely from that source, the auxiliary
steam plant at Montpelier is used. Just
now. and, in fact, throughout a greater
portion of the year, the Montpelier sta
tion is pressed into aervicc on account
of the shortage of power.

BACK TO THE FARM.
Figures from a Barre Real Estate Of
fice Show Such a Trend.
In opposition to tho general impres
sion that present-day tendencies lean
away from the farm rather than back to
the soil of our ancestors, a local real
estate company produces figure and
facts which go" to controvert this popu
lar belief and show beyond a doubt that
there is. in reality, a trend toward the
farm. The I). A. Perry Real Estate coin
puny, one of the largest firms in Ver
mont, makes a specialty of handling
farm propositions and figures given out
at the company's local office this morn
ing prove conclusively that at least fif
teen persons from several states, in
cluding Vermont, have recently been dis
posed to show their faith in Vermont
farms bv investing money jn agricul
tural hinds and occupying their purchas
es as early as possible after the trans
actions are completed.
The sum of $70,000 a little more than
that, in fact spent on farm in the im
mediate vicinity of Barre since August
1 is pretty convincing evidence that not
everyone is contemplating city resi
dence. Farm sales at the Perry com
pany's agency from January 1 would
total nearly ijU(Ml,00O, but the purchases
made since August 1 indicate clearly
enough that thinking people still have
a good deal of faith in the producing j
possibilities ot erinout soil. Jt may;
be said by way of explanation that a
small portion of the $70,000 spent on j
farms in this section went for personal j
projierty. The largest farm sale in- j
volved $12,000 and the smallest panel j
went for $1,500. Two were over .)).00O, ;
four over ijiii.OOO, three over $5,000 and ;
