All departments of the city schools closed down this afternoon for the an nual Christmas vacation of two weeks. The sessions will be resumed on the morning of Jan. 6. In many of the grades to-day there were Christmas trees, accompanied by appropriate exer cises. The afternoon session ended at 3:30 o'clock in the grades.

The local Salvation Army corps will follow a custom established several years ago by distributing food and clothing to the needy at Christmas time.

Granite men who are familiar with the condition of the stone industry throughout the country will be surprised to learn that the splendid new plant of tne ranipton Uramte Co. at 1'omptou i Lakes, N. J., is to be shut down for an 1 indefinite period. Secretary Fred W. Suitor of the quarryworkers' interna tional association, who is in constant communication with a branch of the association at Pompton Lakes, learned yesterday of the company's decision to abandon operations both at the quarries and in the cutting plant. The shed was completed only last summer and stone men pronounced it a model, so far as its facilities and sanitary system were con cerned. It includes a large polishing mill and 'boxing room. No reason is given for the shut-down. The quarries produce a variety of white and pink granite! that is nearer marble than hard granite. It has been used extensively for building purposes and close observ ers of the stone industry had predicted a great future for .the company's prod uct. In the south window of their store on North Main street, Smith & Cuminga have installed a combination coffee grinder, peanut and coffee roaster. The machine has attracted considerable at tention from passersby and T. J. Coffey of Lowell, Mass., who installed the ina chines for the Royal company of Ilor nell, N. Y., said yesterday that many had stopped inside to watch the grinder and roasters in operation. The ma chine is the first of its kind to be used in Barre. It is .operated by gas and a small electric motor and the grinder has a capacity for turning out from four to six pounds of ground coffee per min ute. Its salient feature is the steel cut ters, which reduce the coffee bean into minute particles rapidly and thoroughly, something that the old fashioned grind er could not do. It is specially designed for householders who use a percolator for their coffee. Smith &, Cumings have adopted a new policy in purchasing their peanuts and coffee. Both will be im ported raw and roasted in the new ma A. P. ABBOTT & CO. A. P. ABBOTT & CO. j A. P. ABBOTT & CO. A. P. ABBOTT & CO.
