The grand jury which Wednesday began the considera tion of the case of DeWitt Ballard of Castleton, who on Oct. 31 fatally wound ed with a revolver Thomas F. Leahey of West Rutland while the latter, with oth er boys, was celebrating Hallowe'en near the respondent's house, reported in Rut land county court yesterday afternoon that they had found an indictment for manslaughter against Ballard. , The evidence was presented . to the grand jury Wednesday afternoon, and as they did not report until noon yester day, it is believed-that some difficulty was experienced in deciding upon the de gree of the crime on which Ballard is to be tried. . The statutes provide that the penalty for manslaughter shall be from one year to life imprisonment or a fine of not more than $1,000. Ballard will bo tried during the present term of county court.

AMUSEMENT NOTES. To-night Balalaika Orchestra at Barre x Opera House. The balalaika is a musical instrument the national instrument of Russia. It has a past, that loses itself in. the nebu lous unwritten history of the early tribes of northern Europe. Its tones delighted the uncouth nomads of those parts when Greek and Rome civilization were at their height. The balalaika is the connecting link between primitive savagery and civiliza tion. Every great museum attests this fact by giving the instrument represen- A ! In the Old Days There Were Several Men to Win 7 Renown GEO. W.

It was the first step to ward culture, undertaken qy, what is now a great people. Its dulcet notes were the first out pouring of Russia music. The balalaika's strains inspired the pioneer Russian dancers whose successors now hold two hemispheres enthralled by their marvel ous ballets. , It was M. Andreff whose wonderful work in organizing balalaika orchestras I won for him the first place at the im perial court of Russia. His music is played by all the balalaika orchestras in Russia and by the orchestras that have gone from the czar's country by imperial permission. His music will be featured by the Rus sian balalakai orchestra when it appears at the opera .house to-night. Adv.

Harold Bell Wright, the author of "The Shepherd of the Hills," which comes to the opera house on Saturday, matinee and niglit, .Nov. 8. is conceded to be the most popular American novel ist. No modern author s books have had anything like the sale that has been ac corded to Mr. Wright's works. Xearly everyone is familiar with the characters in "The Shepherd of the Hills." They are people out of the or dinary run of life, people in whose veins run good, rich, red blood. They do things in a natural, human way; thev love and hate with deep passion. In making a play of lus novel, Mr. Wright, with the assistance of Elsbury V. Reynolds, lias retained all the dra matic moments of the story and en larged upon the character of "Preachin' Bill," making a character of him that will be long 'remembered by theatre goers. Naturally, the love between "Sammy Lane" and "Young Matt" Is the pivot upon which the play revolves. Messrs. Gaskill and MacVitty, the pro ducers, have mounted the play :in a sumptuous manner and given it a cast that promises to prove unique in the matter of types. Adv. J. W. Gorman's Comedians, in a Reper toire of Musical Plays. The fact that these will be presented by one of J. W. Gorman's companies carries an assurance of high standards in all that the term implies. This of itself will please our theatre goers who appreciate merit wherever found. And when informed that these musical plays are from the pen of Mat thew Ott, whose genius is international for creating bright, snappy, scintillat ing farce, thp kind that not only drives away that feeling of erulean hue, but leaves the sides aching from convulsive laughter, this bit of news will prove all the more welcome. "I Should Worry," "Merry Chaperon," The Happy Hunters," are the names of the musical comedies and they are par ticularly brimming with eccentric nov elties as well as rollicking music of the whistleable kind. . Take in the trood things as they come. Go to the opera house next Monday and see the show. Then when you're satis- lied that J. W. Gorman's comedians will please your friends, why tell them 80. Adv. - "Where are the wrestlers of yester day ?" It was ex-Senator George W. Flagg of Braintree, the lone survivor of a race of wrestling men that once made history In the sporting world, who re peated, a question that hundreds have asked themselves as they scan the sport ing sheets that sow teem with such strange men of wrestling fame as Yus- seff Mahmout, "Shad" Link, Zbysko, Frank Gotvh. Dr. Roller and Cyclone Burns. The man who out-wrestled the flower of Vermont youth in the muster ing days of '61 smiled a bit sadly ana talked of the past. In spite of his 74 summers, Air. Jagg, the one-time heavyweight champion, con verses with the ardor of youth and ac companies his remarks with gestures that belie his years. He was in a remi niscent mood when a Times reporter met him yesterday. "They are gone, most of them," he said by way of reply to the leading question. "In the liey-dey of my career on tue mat, the second-rate performers in Ver mont could throw anvbody in the United States," explained Mr. Flagg by way of indicating the prestige which once at tached to a coterie of wrestlers who claimed the Green Mountain state for their home. "Up in Fairfield, in north-J em Vermont, there were men galore who could fling the best the country afforded in those days." It was a generous trib ute to a town that has produced some famous wrestlers, for men of another generation who followed the game still tell of the time when Mr. Hagg met and won his falls from John MeMahon, the cleverest wrestler that ever represented Fan-held on the mat. In the years before the war, the Brain- tree man, then a stripling, first gained a local reputation as one of the most dexterous wrestlers in his home town. A few years later he enlisted in the sec ond Vermont volunteers and it was while the regiment was encamped at Burling ton and waiting for orders to the front that considerable rivalry developed among the several companies that made up the Old .Second, as it is fondly-called. From Bennington there came a private Who was heralded far and wide as an invincible man on the mat. John MeMa hon, a nine-months' man, met the down state champion and flung him in straight falls." The regimental honors went from company to foml ny until Mr. Flagg was induced to enter. Thereafter the championship rested with Company F. Throughout the war, the man from Braintree continued to shine in' army circles, and while the regiment was in winter quarters, he had ample opportu nity to try his skill with the champion wrestlers of other regiments. After the war he devoted most of his spare time to perfecting himself in the art. A trio consisting of If. M. Dufur of uaterbury, now a resident of Los Angeles, C'al., the doughty MeMahon, snd Mr. Flagg traveled up and down the state, and whererer they went the local champions usually had to take the count. Rivalry for wrestling honors was keen in those davs and every town had its champion. In the matches between themselves, both MeMahon and Dufur often managed to take a fall out of the Braintree champion, but the matches they always lost. Latterly, the favorite diversion at the county fairs came to be wrestling, and many were the times when one town backed its champion to the limit against an invader. At the state fair in Vermont, agricultural fairs in Xew York, the principal cities of the Empire state, large centers in Michigan, Wisconsin and other western states, Mr. Flagg was ready, with his ma linger to accept all coiners. One and all were uniformly unsuccess ful in downing the rugged" Vermonter. Presently from one quarter of the sec tion would come forth a mighty man to do battle-with the pride of Braintree., but it was an old story once they came together. There are men living "to-day. and many of them, who well remember the Fourth of July celebration at Lyn don fairgrounds 32 years ago. The day was warm and thousands came by train and team to see the invincible pair, Flagg and Dufur, struggle for superior ity. mi a rAOOO delicit in the treas ury, the fair directors hoped to cancel the obligations by engaging two excel lent drawing cards. By nightfall the deficit was wiped out and there was $500 in the fate box to boot. Flagg won, and after that no one questioned his claim .to supremacy. Despite his advancing years, Mr. Flagg Mother! Your child isn't naturally cross and peevish. See if tongue is coat ed; this is a sure sign its little stomach, liver and bowels need a cleansing at once. When listless, pale, feverish, full of cold, breath bad, throat sore, doesn't eat, sleep or act naturally has stomach ache, diarrhoea, remember, a gentle liver and bowel cleansing should always be the first treatment given. , Nothing equals "California (Syrup of Figs" for children's ills ; give a teaspoon ful, and in a few hours all the foul waste, sour bile and fermenting food Which is clogged in the bowels passes out of the system, and you have a well and playful child again. All children love this harmless, delicious "fruit laxa tive," and it never fails to effect a good "inside cleansing. Directions- for ra bies, children of all ages and grown-ups are plainly, on the bottle. Keep it handy in your home. A little given to-day saves a sick child to-morrow, but get the genuine. Ask your druggist for a 00-cent bottle of "Cali fornia Syrup of Figs," then look and see that it is made by the "California Fig Syrup Company." Counterfeits are be ing sold here. Don't be fooled! Advt. continued to seek glory on the mat. His quest was invariably successful. No longer ago than 1901 an offer came from Manchester, N. H. It was on the occa sion of the dedication of a large gym nasium, and sporting men from all parts of New England gathered there to see the Green Mountain farmer meet his bet ter. ' For three days matches were pulled off, but the end saw the man from Brain tree still in the lead. It was his last public appearance on the cushion. De clining years and a desire to improve his large timber tracts in Orange county led him to abandon the game. Mr. Flagg Was married in this city ThursdaA and after a few days ut sight-seeing he in tends to take his bride back to the an cestral farm in Braintree, there to de vote his whole time to reforesting im mense areas of mountain land and to breeding fancy Cotswold sheep, for which he has already become justly famed. Here in America wrestling as a sport has fallen into bad repute. .Too often the matches have been "fixed" and a long-suffering public is averse to 'believ ing that the game was once elevated to high levels in the sporting world. To the fact that every man jack of them wrestled straightaway and fair, Mr. Flagg attributes the craze for matches that once existed. Individually, the champions in those days were men who rarely used liquor and' seldom smoked to excess. It was bad for the wind, they said. During his long career as a wrestler of the first class, Mr. Flagg never aroused the anger of hia opponent. Neither did he allow his adversary to anger him. The same was true in a measure of the other famous wrestlers of the dav, Dufur, MeMahon, and the others. Those who recall the scene which followed the lute defeat of the Terrible Turk in one of the large eastern cities will smile at Mr. Flagg 's concluding ob servation of the-wrestlers then and now.

There is no other treatment for ca tarrh that is like Hyomei or just as good. None can take its place, nme give such quick, effective and sure relief and at so little cost furthermore, the Red Cross Phtfrmacy will refund your money if you are not benefited. Hyomei,. as sold by all druggists, reaches the most remote- cells of the' air passages. kills the catarrhal germs, soothes and heals the irritated mucous membrane.

Francis F.aton of the Boston Journal says that JJartmouth has the best team since it beat Harvard 22 to 0 back in UM)7. Hoegsett and Loudon, the Dartmouth pair of ends, are rated as among the best of the season. These players showed championship calibre in "the big Tiger game under the most adverse conditions. Yale has not developed anything of championship type, while Harvard can lay claim to just O'Brien, the versatile left wing man. Dr. Carl WiPfams say that Wagner, the right end of the Uni versity of Pittsburg, is one of the best ends of the season. One of the candidates for the position of quarterback on the All-American team, is Miller, the, diminutive Penn State team general. Miller's open field work has been one of the big sensations of the past few football seasons. Ever since the inauguration of the Haiighton system of coaching at Har vard the Crimson team has been success ful on the gridiron. Harvard rufeds not to send out hurry calls for grads to re turn and place the eleven in line for the big games. The backlone of the Har vard system is Percy Hausjhton, Leo Leary, and the two Withingtons. Others who have figured in pouring out advice to the Cambridge warriors this season are Dave Campbell, the best end Har vard ever had, Tau Cambell, James Knox, Reggie Brown, Harry Gardner, Ham Corbett and Parmenter. Larry Cheney, a star pitcher of the Chicago Cubs, feels optimistic over the prospects of the Cubs next season. He says that the. Cubs will win the pen nant in the next Xational league race. Cheney will keep in condition this win ter hunting in Oklahoma. Bill Hollenbach, "the old Penn player, says that Pennsylvania's line compares favorably with "the Harvard ' line. . He does not venture to compare t!;e back field of the two colleges. At the present date the Xavy once more rules favorite in the annual battle with the Army, which will be staged in Xew York during the latter part of this mouth. The Army has had an in auspicious season, being humiliated with a defeat at the hands of the Xotre Dame team and having several other close scored games with minor colleges. In comparison, the avy has had a most successful season, downing all opponent with ease, lhe Xavy had a great ad vantage in having a veteran team. Their line is described as one of the strongest in the country. A new idea has been realized in Xew York for staging football contests in in- teischolastic circles. Doubleheaders in stead of single contests are afforded the public. At the initial trial of this nov elty on Tuesday, over 10,000 person turned out for the Manuel-Erasmus and Poly Prep-Boys' high games. President Comiskv of the White Sox has acquiesced in the wishes of Doc White, the veteran White Sox pitcher, and will declare him a free agent pro viding White can effect negotiations for the purchase of Thomas Fairweathers interests in the Des Moines club.

In holies of bettering the Yale team, Captain Ketchnm has shifted from the middle of the line to an end position. Ketcham played center during the past few seasons, but has alternated both at guard and tackle in the course. Yale has been decidedly crippled with wing men, several of the best material becom ing incapacitated. Ketcham's appear ance on the end of the line is expected to bolster up their strength. Bob Zuppke, the former Oak Park high school coach and Illinois coach, was nev er a star footliall player during his ca reer. He learned the game in a hard way, as a member of the scrub team at the University of Wisconsin. Nevertheless-. Zuppke acquired a fundamental knowledge of the game and now ranks as one of the leading exponents of coach ing in the country. Hnrrv Williams, who has worked won ders with football at the University of Minnesota during the past few seasons, has a contract that calls for two addi tional Reasons. Williams' proteges have had rather adverse fortune during the past season, but undoubtedly that has been due to lack of material. A. N. S.

Criticism of progress of football at Yale this season is not being hurled at the door of Howard Jones, who is serv ing his first season in the capacity of head coach of the eleven.

"Of course, it was perfectly disgrace ful, but what could we do! Emma was tempted to place a woman on the school board, about fifteen years ago, most of the men objected, and they decided to hold a town caucus and call the women in. There were a great many reasons why a woman shouldn't leave her home and sit around on a school board, and they felt sure that if they were to talk it over frankly in meeting they could show them these reasons. And anyway, the chairman would be a man, twhich wduld, of course, take care of the situa tion. "So a caucus was called, and the grand opera house, which holds six hundred human beings, and about a hundred boys in the front seats, was jammed until it bulged. We knew that no woman could out-argue our seasoned old poli ticians, and when Calvin. Briggs, who has planned all the inside work in the congressional district for twenty years, got up and showed just just why women ought not to intrude, there "was an abashed silence all over the house, until Emma Madigan, who is a town character and does just as she pleases, got up. She stood up about fifty nine seconds after Briggs had got a good start, and she argued with him as follows: "That's all right, Mr. Briggs You can't make me sit down, Mr. Chairman, you nor any of you politicians You're a fine man to talk tbout schools, Mr. Bribes. Xo. 1 won't stop. - You know a lot about children, don't you, coming up here with tobacco ' juice all over your shirt front; and why don't you pay some taxes before you get up here and tell how to run a town? All right, chairman, I'm. done.' "But so was Briggs. We eouldn't help laughing at him. Editor Simpson, who runs the 'Sentinel.' stepped into the hreaoh and regretted greatly that so dis graceful an attack had been made upon a well-beloved citizen by a woman. Xo man would dare make such an attack, he opined. Then Emma got up again. The chairman called her to order, but he might as well have rapped down the rising tide.

Following is an ex tract: "When the Homeburg women first at- a woman. Ae couldn t throw her out. We couldn't even get her to listen to parliamentary rules.
