The newly appointed aldermanic police committee is confronted with the neces sity for filling the vacancy in the ranks of the regular police force caused bv the death of Officer G. K. Carle. When the latest acquisition to the force was ap pointed, there were two men on the waiting list who had passed the civil service examinations conducted by the committee and the chief of police. Both of these men have left the state and the committee is now contemplating a second exnmination for the purpose of securing a list from which to rill the va cancy. According , to the rule fixed when the civil service system was in troduced, the examination is advertised for several da.vs. Usually it is held in the council chamber and in the past there has always been a large numlier of competitors. Candidates must con form to the provisions of the civil service act. From the list of applieants who take the examination, the three highest are set aside and from their number the one whose qualifications seem to lie the most desirable is usually recom-, mended by the committee. The other two remain on the waiting list.

The entire store has been re-covered with a hardwood floor and all drpartments have lieen ma terially enlarged by the removal of the tailor's hearoiiarters.

George Beattie, who is employed as baggage agent at the Central Vermont station, was the victim of a peculiar ac cident this forenoon that detained him temporarily from his duties and left a reminder of his narrow escape in the shape of a bad gash on the forehead. The agent went to the basement around 10 o'clock to look for a switch-lamp. AS he reached for the little button which controls the cellar lighting system, he bumped into an iron bar that extends across one corner of the basement. His foreheail came in contact with the bar so suddenly and with such force that the young man was knocked nearly senseless for the time-being. Laborers in the far end of the basement heard his cries and came ' to his assistance. Water and liniment helped to revive the agent, although he continued to suf fer severe pain from the blow.
