To-day also marked the beginning of the interactional glomes with Jlicni- gan playing at Syracuse. Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 0. Unshed by a big victory over the university of Pennsylvania last week, Brown univer sity was prepared to give Harvard to day what was believed would be the stif fest test thus far on the Crimson's schedule. Harvard has always defeated Brown, but generally the scores havo been elose and the games very spec tacular. Princeton. X. J., Oct. 26. Anxious to avenge their defeat by Princeton Inst fall when DeWitfs "famous dropkick robbed them of a tie score, the Dart mouth college football team came here to-day, determined not to be overcome easily in this afternoon's game.

State Geological Survey Cooperates with Federal Survey to Secure Them West Virginia by financial coopera tion with the United States geological survey is securing for itself a topograph .. ic map which when completed will show every important physical feature of this y mountainous state. The survey is being made in four-sided areas known as quad rangles, averaging about 200 square miles each, and as the area are sur veyed the resulting map sheets, 14 by 18 inches, are engraved and published by the federal survey. There re 131 of these quadrangles in the state and al ready 103 have been surveyed and the maps publinhed. The latest map issued is that of the Bald Knob quadrangle, surveyed in 1910 by Fred McLaughlin, a topographic engineer of the federal survey. This quadrangle lies in the . southwestern part of the state, covering a portion ot Uoone, Wyoming, and Kal eigh counties, and is traversed by Coal river. The map is published on a scale of approximately 1 mile to the inch and portray an exceedingly broken and mountainous country with elevations ranging from less than 1,000 to over 2.800 feet. The ridges, mountains, and valleys are shown clearly by contour lines. "4. Another West Virginia map just is sued is the Holden sheet, representing the area a quarter of a decree to the west of the Bald Knob quadrangle, the Logan quadrangle intervening. The Holden area U similar in topography to the Paid Knoh quadrangle, being moun ts immA and intersected y many creeks and stream. It is alo traversed by several railways and in rhown to lie a coal-mining and coke producing region. The Holden quadrangle was mirveyed by K. I. Ireland of the CniteJ State geo logical survey. The msps are printed in four colors black showing ttwns, farm house muds, and other works of man; blue bowing the rivers, creeks: green, show ing the forest areas; and brown, fur the contour line which show the sires and hipea of the mountains and hills and their altitudes above - level.

C Roosevelt's Would-Be Visitor Was Hus tled Away from the House Yes terday Afternoon Ht Is Not Thought Dangerous. Oyster Buy, X, Y., Oct. 2(1.--On ac count of a number of threatening letters received by Colonel Roosevelt and the presence in Oyster Buy of a stranger who attempted yesterday to make his way into the colonel's house, steps were taken last night to guard the life of the ex-president. Tentative decision was reached to engage one or two men to protect Colonel Roosevelt during the remainder of the campaign and for a time thereafter, if the colonel had not recovered sufficiently by election day to be able to defend himself. Colonel Roosevelt's condition continued to improve and his physicians said that he would be able to speak at the Madi son Square garden meeting in Xew York on Wednesday night, if no unforeseen complications arise. But they said that ho would be unable to do any further campaigning. the man wlio attempted to see I oio- nel Roosevelt arrived in Oyster Bay in the afternoon and set out on foot for Sagamore Hill. He was met at the door by the colonel's secretary and in sisted that he must see the ex-presi dent, although told that no visitors were being received. tie was a tall, well-dressed man, witn flowing black moustache and a som brero, which gave him the appearance of a westerner. He would give no rea son for asking to see the colonel, but persisted in his demands until he was cut oft sharply and told to leave Saga more Hill. He then asked to see Mrs. Roosevelt. The colonel's secretary final- y persuaded him that it was useless and he went away TUiere was nothing about the man s manner to suggest that ho would at- empt violence, and he was described hy those who saw him as being apparently harmless. The stranger returned to the village and wrote a long rambling let ter to Colonel Roosevelt. Then he disappeared. lhe attempt on lolonul Koosevelts ifo was said by Dr. George W. Fa Dec of Ovster Bay, one of the colonel's phy sicians, to have stirred up "cranks" and to be responsible for the letters which Colonel Roosevelt has received since he returned to Ovster Bay. In some of them, threats have been made againsi lonel Roosevelt, and it was decided that the danger of another attempt to assassinate him was sufficient to make it necessary to guard him. The colo nel's physicians wish to have him get out of doors as soon as possible, be- leving that he will be benefited greatly by doing so, but they are unwilling to lsk the chance of another attack, it is probable that Colonel Roosevelt will be kept in the house until adequate provision has been provided. Frank Tyree, United States marshal in West Virginia, is the mnjj to whom the guarding of Colonel Roosevelt would be intrusted if his services were avail able, but there was some doubt whether he would be able to leave to come to Oyster Bay. Mr. Tyree is an old secret service man, who was a member of President Roosevelt's personal guard. If Mr. Tyree is unable to come to Oys ter Bay, a private detective probably will be engaged. It was the idea of Colonel Roosevelt's friends to have a detective in Oyster Bay, watching the trains for arrival of suspicious characters and keeping in touch .with strangers in the town. Dr. Taller received a letter of warn ing yesterday from John A. Waldron, appointment clevk in the office of Gov ernor Dix at Albany. Mr. Waldron wrote that a man who had attempted to force his way into Mercy hospital in Chicago, while Colonel Roosevelt was there, had been a prisoner in Clinton prison dur ing the Roosevelt administration and at ,L. j , in i . .. : . . i. : OFFICER SHOT DOING DUTY Deputy Sheriff Herman J.

The boys, who were busy among themselves, had only a hazy remem brance of an individual who they said, had entered and gone out again, carry ing something under his arm. Mr. Green brought the cash box to the store as usual at about five o'clock plac ing it on a desk in the rear of the store in preparation for the usual morning hank deposit.

B. Dodge went to his creamery building at the corner of North Main and Granite streets and discovered two young lads hiding under a churn. Robert Donald of Grant' avenue, who was released from the industrial school in Vergennes on parole thirteen months ago, and J-rank JJeforge of Granite street were the culprits whom the but ter man delivered over to the custody of Officer Harry Gamble and the pair had just returned from an excursion of plunder covering two other stores, when Mr. Dodge happened to visit his place ot business around 7 o clock. Young DeForge has made a clean breast of his short criminal career and the Donald boy has corroborated a part of his companion's story. Both are 15 rears old and have parents living in this city. They were brought to the police station last night on warrants issued by Grand Juror Hugh H. Carpenter, charging them with breaking and enter ing. It is likely that these charges will be withdrawn in favor of larceny accu sations when the respondents are ar raigned nelore Judge Jl. . eolt in city court. Mr. Dodge was called to his creamery early in the evening by two patrons who wjshed to deliver a load of milk, The patron and his wife went to the hack door of the building, while Mr. Dodge entered from the front. It was the woman who first saw the face of a boy peering out from under a churn. and as Mr. Dodge came through from his office she asked him if any boys had accompanied him 'nto the creamer-. Ho replied in the negative, and it was then than the proprietor went to the churn and dragged out two very unwill ing youngsters. While Mr. Dodge was calling police headquarters, young Dp Forge made a break and gained his lib erty, Donald was held in custody until Officer Gamble arrived. Afterwards, the officer procured a war rant and apprehended DeForge at hit home on Granite street. After he had been lodged in a cell for a short time, the DeForge boy grew reminiscent and began to unfold his tale to the rhief. He confessed to accompanying Donald to the Tassie market about a week ago, forcing an entrance and stealing two rolls of pennies, esch containing 50 cents. DeForge said that they made their way into the market through a window. I Afterwards it developed that the Tassie market was again their goat last night, when a few apples repreented the booty gained on the second visit. Immediately after this theft, they went to the rear of the Howland block and forced a window leading to the Woolworth store. Here they regaled themselves by opening all of the ten or a down easn register nirinniei about the store. The tills had been emptied, however, and the youthful bur glars made off with a few" candy boxes am! other trinket easv to lug. he IVvlge creamery was the next place vi itcd and it there that their errand ended in capture.

Fire Broke Out in the Bolster Circle This Morning FROM A WORKMAN'S TORCH Johnson & Gustafason Sustained Slight Loss and the. rlding Was Little Damagee" J' Alarm Called 0' Ivt entire Department. - A' . LITTLE DANGER OF FURTHER SPREAD OF SMALLPOX So Says Dr. Holton of State Board of Health Business Intercourse With Other Towns Not Prohibited. The danger of any further spread of smallpox in Barre is passed. There may be isolated cases, but from now on the number of cases will decrease. Dr. Hen ry D, Holton. secretary of the state board of health, said yesterday: "There is very little danger of its spreading. This is due in a large measure to the energetic measures to stamp it out taken from the start and continued until the present time, and which will be con tinued until the state board of health believes it safe to relax. The past twenty-four hours has de veloped no new cases, or suspicious eases. In response to a query to him as to the present situation in Rarre, and re garding business intercourse with other towns, Dr. H. I). Holton of the state board yesterday sent the following tele gram to City Attorney E. L. Scott: "Rutland, Oct. 23, 1912. "Hon. E. L. Scott, Barre: "The situation regarding smallpox in Barre has not reached the point where the presentreguiations can be safely changed. There is nothing in them that was intended to interfere with doing business with any adjoining town under these regulat ions. J here is very little danger of its spreading. "Henry D. Holton, "Sec. State Board of Health." TALK OF THE TOWN F. S. Williams returned to Bradford last evening, after a few days' business visit in the city. W. B.

Mrs. Barclay and daughter have been visiting at Randolph for the past two weeks. The formation of a literary organiza tion, which will be under the adminis tration of the Socialist local of Barre, fire In the south end of Mrs. L. J. Bolster's steam polishing mill on Granite street this morning made business for the firemen and threatened for a few moments several buildings in the samo group. An alarm from box 5 on Granite sfrwt brought the combination onto truck, chemical wagon nnd ladder truck to the shed nt (;." r o'clock, and when the firemen .dismounted they found flames running up through a partition to the roof. Two tanks of chemical so lution were spread over the burning area and the fire was out. The lower end of the shed is occupied by the firm of Johnson & Gustafason, who do cutting as well as polishing. Before the whistles sounded, one of the men who reaches the shed early lighted a gasoline torch which hangs on" the wall in the boiler room. When the work man's back was turned, the torch flared partition-ward and presently a lively little flame was creeping toward the roof. The crackling of dry tinder first led to the fire's discovery and someone turned in a general alarm from the box near by. Owing, it is said, to low press ure at the gas plant, the big whistle that usually booms out an emphatic alarm emitted only a feeble noise that sound ed like fizzle and then gave up the job ot serving notice on the call men. Los on the building will not exceed if.'iO, and the Johnson & Gustafason com pany is well protected. One member of the firm is absent from the city, and the second was not present at the out break this morning. Mrs. Bolster's loss on the building is also well insured. The all-out signal sounded within fifteen minutes after the firemen arrived, al though one of the regulars was left at the shed to guard against a second out break. Chief Gladding stated this morning that the failure of the gas company's whistle to sound the alarm was due to the extremely low pressure of steam at the time, no visited the gas plant soon after the fire was extinguished and found, 20 pounds of steam registered, where, as he declared, a pressure of SO pounds was desirable. A watchman at the plant explained that the whistle's silence was partially due to a valve leak, which would be repaired. ORANGE LUMBER CO.'S MILL DESTROYED BY FIRE Heavy Loss Sustained Last Evening, Just at Opening of the Lumbering Season Other Buildings Saved. The large sfeam saw-mill of the Or ange Lumber company, located nt tha base of Knox mountain in Orange, was wholly destroyed bv fire last evening, but the other buildings of the plant escaped destruction because of the fact that there Ma little wind. The mill and its contents were valued at $20,000, on which there was a partial insurance. Members of the company stated this morning that they had not decided whether they would rebuild or not. Tho company has lumbering work ahead m thnt vicinity to cover a venr or more. The fire broke out about 8 o'clock. Workmen had been engaged in the mill luring the day, laving a cement founda tion for the engine, quitting work at about 8 o clock in the evening, lliere was no one about the mill at the time, and so it is possible that the fire may have started from a match which smoul dered for some time, 6r from spontane ous combustion, there 'being much oily material about the mill. When the fire was discovered, tho building was enveloped in' flames and nothing could be done to check the file; but efforts were directed toward saving the other property. A large barn is lo cated near bv and a little further away re two buildings occupied by the chop pers and the mill men, while still fur ther away are several residence build ings. There were no logs near the mill, so that, fortunately, the loss is not so large as it would have been a few weeks later. The mill had not started for the win ter's work, but the owners were over hauling the machinery ready for starting up. Part of the engine was outside oi the mill and was not damaged, although other necessary parts to it were in the building and were ruined. Much of tho equipment was new. having been put in a year ago. The building was erected by the Orange Lumber company when lumbering operations were started thren years ago. The company is comsed of the Hiii man family of North Strat ford. N. H. 1. 0. 0. F.
