The escape from serious wreck of the New England States Limited train on the Central Vermont railroad at West Berlin last evening is a. matter for great congratulation, for the conditions were such as to make a terrible catastrophe possible. The train was traveling at a rate estimated at around 45 miles an hour and it wa occupied by upwards of 100 people, perhaps by as many as 150, when it struck the switch' and was di verted to a sidetrack with a lurch which sent several cars off the rails and shook the passengers out of their seats, to be further jarred when the engineer ap plied the brakes so promptly that the train was stopping on the siding It was an exhibition of good trainmanship on the part of the engineer and served to avert great loss of life and untold suffering, not to speak of considerable financial loss to the railroad company. However, the causes leading up to the wreck (if current reports are to be cred ited) are as reprehensible as the action of the engineer was praiseworthy. Those current opinion credit the theory that the wreck was caused by an open switch to a siding with (a utilized for the pass ing of trains, both freight and passen ger. An investigation is being conducted by the railroad officials to see if there was dereliction of duty in leaving the switch open, one of the gravest offenses in railroading. Meanwhile, the accident serves as another argument in favor Df a double track system on the Central Vermont railroad. But eight governors have been im peached in the history of the United States and of the colonies prior to the forming of the republic. It is a grave undertaking which has been undertaken in New York and one which should no be prosecuted too hastily from thi time on. These reunions of Civil war veterans of the Washington County association must take on new interest every yea to the surviving members who gather for the exercise at Dewey parkj and that the interest ia strong is indicated by the comparatively large attendance at the reunion. The backfire which the Impeachment proceeding against Governor Sulzer have started is -likely to raise not a little smoke, as indicated by the first cloud New York may have such an airing as it hasn't had in years. Hennessy vs Horgan is the first j there's no telling what will bs the last. There is hope for Boston & Maine stockholders in the announcement that the gross earning of the railroad dur ing the last fiscal year show an increase of two and one-half million dollars al though the operating expenses showed a considerable increase. The conclusion to be gained from the report is that the Boston &. Maine i operating in a grow ing field of industry and that judicious management ia likelj to bring the road out of the financial slough of recent year. The Sulzer probe has brought out a new definition of a Wall street specula tor, or rather what is not a specula tor. This definition state that a buy er of stocks and bonds Is not a specu lator unles he keep in hourly eommu nication with hi stock broker to learn the condition of the market. In other words, the fact that a man buy in order to sell on the rise of the market has nothing to do with it unlee he is pestering his stock broker by 'phone constantly during the day and night. Still, authorities may differ. The town of West Rutland get more than its fill of notoriety with two cases of alleged manslaughter in two days; but one satisfactory feature of the dou ble portion of disrepute is the speed with which the prosecuting officer got to work in searching out the alleged crime. They lost no time in starting an invea tigation of the death which first came to notice and within a few hour had placed seven person under arreet for al leged connection with the crime or for alleged knowledge of the facts in the case. In the second instance, too, there was equally as prompt action in endeav oring to solve the mystery of the death of a woman whose body was found yes terday. Rutland county people must feel a measure of relief, in a distressing sit uation that they have alert prosecuting officers. The decision of Congressman Augus tus I Gardner to enter the contest for the Massachusetts governorship has been received with great enthusiasm in some part of the somewhat shattered Re publican party in that state; but his entry ha not served to simplify a con fused situation in the least. The enthu siasm is borne of the knowledge that Gardner is a fighter from the hurling of his hat into the ring and that he will conduct a strenuous campaign before the direct primaries. There is something refreshing in having a candidate who come out into the open, state his wishes frankly and prepare to lay his claims to the office squarely before the voters. Such a man is Augustus Pea body Gardner, Harvard graduate, ol- V. N. G.

Infantrymen hur ried up and set things to rights. I he national guardsmen were busy resterday afternoon breaking camp, and last night they slept two arid two in shelter tents. This morning they will entrain for their home towns. Governor Fletcher expressed himself yesterday a much pleased with his stay in camp, and with the showing made by the guardsmen. He spoke of the annual encampment of the regiment a a factor in keeping alive the spirit which has made a reputation for Vermonter in defense of their country, and said that the work of the officers and men is be ginning to receive appreciation, a is evi denced by the appropriation made at the recent session of the general assembly for the first of a series of new armories. Adequate and attractive quarter for all the companies, he said, would do much to stimulate interest and attract Vermont era to the service of the state, as well as to maintain the present high charac-1 ter of the men holding commissions and serving tn the ranks. The miiitarv knowledge and experience gained here, he added, is of just the sort that would be urgently needed in case of a foreign war, and it would be well it more citizen could have this.

St. Loui Republic I waa one Bigbt called from my bed to visit a patient of whom I had never beard. I asked the person at the phone bow be came to call upon me, and be could give no reason. Bat be aid there was A young girl there who bad received an Injury and It be could not get a doctor for her goon be feared ebe would die. He bad called op sev eral doctors and 411 bad refused to come. "For heaven's sake, doctor," be add ed, "don't leave us with. a dying wo man, on oar bands. We'll pa what we can!" I lived on a street- which, though It was eminently respectable, was not far distant from a district wbtcb was quite tbe reverse. I decided to walk rather than take oat my chauffeur, who bad driven me a good deal late at night recently and was tired out Tbe man at tbe phone bad given me the street and nambert, and as I pro ceeded I saw that I was In tbe worst part of the town. Tbe bouse itself was neither good nor bad, tbe worst thing about it being Its surroundings. I hesitated for a moment, then rang tbe belL A woman came to the door. and I noticed that Instead of harrying me to tbe sickroom she looked out through the open doorway to see whether 1 had come by conveyance. "Did yon walk, doctor?" she asked. "Yes. Why do you wish to know thatr "On, nothing. Most doctors go about In automobiles nowadays." This Interest In bow I bad come in creased my suspicions, especially since the call had been so urgent As 1 passed through tbe hall to a room In tbe rear I noticed that there was little or no furniture in the house. Indeed, It was what we call vacant, and the people In It had come Into It for a purpose. Wbnt that purpose was I could only conjecture. If It was to rob me I bad no arms with which to defend myself. As soon as I bad entered the room I saw that I bad not been called to isit a patient The only furniture In It was a rickety chatr. Two men were there, and the woman who bad admit ted me remained without locking the door. Tbe two men looked me over without saying anything. "Where is the patient?" I asked. "There is no patient here," replied one of the men. "What we want is money. Write as a check on your bank for $5,000, and tomorrow after we have drawn the amount we will let yon go." "And if I refuser Tbe spokesman shrugged bis shoul ders, and tbe other man felt some thing Inside the shabby coat be wore wblcb I supposed to be a knife. 1 knew that all this was to terrify me. "I haven't $5,000 in bank." I said. "My balance Is a little over $900. If I remember corrertly. I will give yon a check for $000." The men withdrew to a corner, where tbey held a consultation In whispers. Presently tbey came to me and said that If I would make it sore tbey could get the money on tbe check they would accept the amount and I wrote a note to a friend of mine asking him to draw tbe funds and Cite them to tbe bearer of tbe check. This satisfied tbem. and there" seemed nothing to do bnt for me to sit on tbe rickety chair till tbe next morning and as much longer aa was needed for my captors to get safely away. One of tbe men went out; the other remained with me. I chatted with blm for awhile, apparently making tbs beat of tbe situation. Suddenly I sniff ed tbe air suspiciously. "There's ozone In this room," 1 aald, affecting to be much frightened. If there waa anything in tbe air it was not ozone; it was rather tbe want of it "What's that?" asked tbe man. "Have yon got ozone?" X asked the man, approaching blm and sniffing the air as I did so. Then, putting my cose to bis sleeve, I added: "You bare it Let me get oat of here. 1 don't want to die with yon.' Tbe man looked at me, evidently somewhat frightened, and asked, VTbat ia it, doctor?" "Do yon know what leprosy is?" "Yes." "Well, ozone la a similar disease, though it works much quicker. In two weeks yoo will be a dead man." He turned pale, but kept , enough I nerve to look at me with an lnquirlng glance that I knew was to determine my sincerity. "Let me out" I repeated. "The dis ease la contagions." I kicked furiously on the door. The other man came in to learn what waa tbe matter. I told blm bis friend bad a disease that would carry blm off possibly In a few days, and If be didn't get away from It be would come down with it him self. 1 persisted tilt I bad got them frightened. Then tbey asked If I could not cure tbe disease. I told them there was an antidote, bnt I would have to go for it Following up my advantage, I made an agreement with them that tbey would surrender my check and call the whole affair off if I would give one of tbem a prescription for tbe medi cine and they woo Id let me go as soon as it arrived. I sent the man oat with the prescription and the money to pay for the medicine. I ordered laudanum and when it came gave the patient a dose to cure blm and tbe other a dose for an antidote. Having tbns drugged them, I left and a few minutes later the police bad tbem in charee. ff f f f f f f f f f f f f f vv? ? f f vvvvvf vvvvvvvvf f ff f VffTf f ffTV jllfflu f I Persons desirous of becoming competent and successful Accountants, Book-keepers, Stenographers, Secretaries, or Commercial Teachers, with assurance of employment, will find in the !
