4. ABOUT THE STATE . . 1 HAPPENINGS OF INTEREST FKOM , DIFFERENT 8ECTION3 MYsj Belle (Baehand) Demain, widow of Mitchell Demain, wlib died recently at the home of her son, L. C. Demain, and daughter, Mrs. Amelia J. Watson, in Burlington, was. 02 years old Febru iry 21, and previous to her last illness bad scarcely ever been ill enough to Save a doctor. . . Three valuable fox terrior pups and an lder flog owned by Dr. V. YV. Town tend of Rutland were destroyed by Are Tuesday evening, when their kennel iaught fire, threatening t lie barn in vhich it was located and other outbuild ings, as well as the house, to which they ire attached. . The fire was due to an jil heater which was left burning to keep the pups warni. Mrs. A. A. Fierce came near losing lier home in Evarts by fire recently. She filled the oven to her stove with wood and leaving a good fire went to a near neighbor's, to call. ' When she returned the wood was all burned in the oven and some of it had dropped to the floor tend was blazing briskly. It was quick ly put out, but much damage was done by smoke all through the house. SHE SAVED . iwst' HIM ' By MAY C. EJHER1DGE In the case of the boys who stole cou pons from the .Malted, Cereals company at Burlington, Judge .T. H. Macoiuher decided to put them on probation un der the supervision' of Miss Sophia Ta- bourct, the matron of the Neighborhood house. Miss Tabouret was recently ap pointed policewoman. - The boys are 1-ouis Barlow, Cornelius Barlow, Wil liam Bushey, and diaries Corette. While Leon Wood was working in a . Chester mill a few days ago, a pile of bags of uoapstorie dust, each bag weigh ing 150 pounds, fell onto him, pinning i him to the floor. He was held there , some time before hp could attract any one's attention. No bones' were broken but he was severely wrenched am bruised and has been confined to bis bed ever since. It will probably be some tune before he will be at. work again. Rev. Oeorge B. Gilbert, who was bred , in ermont. now rector or l'.mmanuel Kpiscopal , church of Killingworth, a backwoods township in the vicinity of Juddletown. I onn., may continue to play ball on the church lawn with his warden and congregation and also cut boys' hair in the church vestibule. He lias received the sanction of the bishop of the diocese, the Rt. Rev. Chauneey Bunce Brewster. Some high church Episcopalians appealed to the bishop to etop ,what they consider frivolous prac tices of their rector. The second joint convention of the Vermont Association of Postoflice Clerks . and the Vermont Association of Letter Carriers will be held in Rutland on Me- v: morial day. There is important business to come before each association, and it will be followed by a banquet and a good timer in the evening. There will be prom inent speakers present to tell about many .things of interest to postollice employes, and every free delivery office in the state should be represented by a delegate for each society, and as many more members as can be present. The next day being Sunday, Rutland is hpp- f ing for ft large attendance. ' , ' Beginning with the opening of school next September, there will be but two classes in the grammar grades of the :. Burli?igton school system, shortening the school course from a term of nine years '" .to one .of eight. This move complies with a law enacted by the legislature of ' 1912 and is being followed generally 1 throughout the country. According to the decision of the superintendent and ,. the school commissioners, the A gram mar class, or the ninth grade, will be eliminated lrora fthe school course and the C grammar class or seventh grade, which is now the highest class in all the schools before the grammar school is reached, will hold its sessions in the grammar school building. This will give two-ears instead of three in the gram mar course. SIX MISSIONARIES EATEN. By Cannibals of the Hebrides Group, Says Report. Sydney, N. S. W.. March 23.

DILLON S ana 4 Bolster Block Barre, Vt "John, I've something to say to you. You're a good fellow, and I have no family. I have some stock In the Hope Mining company that is valuable and other securities. They're nil in this tin bos. There is also a will In the box leaving all I possess to you." "Why, Mr. Ilathorn," said John Mur ray, surprised, "what in the world put that Into your head? I've been work ing for you onl7 sit months, and you never saw ma before I came to you and asked you 'or a position In your store. Besides, you are a healthy, strong man. liable to live thirty or forty years longer." "I'll tell you. John. You've told, me about that wife of yours In the east and that little kid you set so. much store by. Somethiug tells me that I've not long to live. If I were to die to morrow there wouldn't be a person in the world to claim what I left If I will It to you you can bring your fam ily out here and go right on with the store. I might as well make some one comfortable, mightn't I? Come with me.". He took John to his bedroom over the store, pulled up a plank in the floor, put in the bor and relald the plank. Then the two went down stairs and resumed their work. That night John Murray wrote his wife In the east and told her of the bequest that might some day come to them. It was about three months after this that John, who took care of the books and the cash, made up a deposit of the cash that had come In during the weelt for the bank at the county seat, some ten miles distant While riding through a narrow defile a man sprang upon him and before he could draw his revolver disarmed him and, taking out a rope, bound him band and foot Then, appropriating the money he car ried, he left John beside the road and made off In the direction of the store. John remained as be was several hours before any one came along to release him; then be returned to re jsort the robbery. Entering the store, he found it deserted. Looking about the place, he found Hathorn's dead body in the barn, with a little hay thrown over it ' Here were two troubles John! had to report to his neighbors, though the first was nothing in comparison with the second. Ills story looked very un likely. It seemed more probable that he bad made up the story about having been robbed, had appropriated .the money himself and bad murdered his employer. The store stood alone, with no house within a mile. John was ar rested and tried, and, though the evi dence against him was purely circum stantial, it insured his conviction, and he-was sentenced te be hanged. - One day a woman entered a jewelry store at the county seat where John was awaiting execution, and offered to sell a watch. The Jeweler noticed on 'the case the initials E. L. II. lie ask ed the woman If these were her ini tials, and she admitted that they were not and looked frightened. This excit ed the suspicion of the Jeweler, and he kept the woman parleying till he could learn more of her. Then It occurred to him that the initials were those of Mr. Ilathorn, whose murder had ex cited so great a commotion In the com munity. He sent for an officer, and the woman was arrested. Having been put through a severe examina tion, she broke down and confessed that she bad murdered Ilathorn and carried off the watch with her. But she claimed that plunder had not been her object averring that Hathorn had married and deserted her. There were two opinions as to this confession, the one being that it was untrue, the other that It was genuine. Those who maintained the latter view were supported by the fact that Mur ray's lawyer had brought evidence to show .that Hathorn had feared some secret enemy. This turned the scale against the woman, though Murray was not at once released. As soon as he was he went to the jail where she wag confined to hare a look at her. lie was astonished to see his own wife. Fortunately the official that was with him' was behind Murray and the wife had time to give her husband a warn lng look not to recognize her before the man came up. During the Interview she also succeeded In whispering to him: "Fly for your life. I will be all right" John saw in this a scheme to save him and as soon as be left the Jail disappeared. A day or two later Mrs. Murray recalled her confession, telling the following story: She said that as soon as she heard of her husband's arrest she had gone west She had had Hathorn's Initials engraved on a watch that belonged to her brother and used it to get herself arrested. She told of the tin box of which her husband had written her and which had not been referred to by defendant's counsel in the trial since the will It contained would show a mo tive for the murder by Murray. Attended by court officials, Mrs. Mur-ray- went to nathorn's room in the etore, and the box was found. Be sides the articles In it already men tioned was a paper on which was writ ten, "Eben Greenleaf tins sworn to kill me. aad I believe be will." Who Greenleaf was never came to light John Murray was Invited to return, hut wrote his wife to sell out the stor and bring bis inheritance east THE BUSINESS FARMER'S CORNER SPRAYING FOR SAN JOSE SCALE The Only Way to Overcome Pests. H. W. Doyle. Department of Agriculture, Kansas. Look for a flattened circular 'scale about the size of the head of a pin. The color is almost or quite black, with a ring near the center, on the inside of which may be distinguisiieu a smau nip .le. The multinlvinjr powers of the San Jose scale are enormous. They lie flat against the bark, skin f fruit or leaves of trees and rapidly cover the entire plant with a motinous layer oi minute scales. Each scale sucks sap through a tiny beak. Fruit and scales cannot grow on the same tree. Young trees succumb. The San Jose scale is especially fond of the Deach. currant, plum, pear and apple. Hopelessly infested trees should be cut down and burneq completely, a verv effective wpray, which also destroys peach leaf curl, apple scab and other fungous diseases, is one consisting oi twenty pounds of quicklime, fifteen pounds ot flowers oi suipnur ana uny gallons ot water. Preparing the Lime and Sulphur. With a littlit water mix the sulphur into a thick paste in a separate vessel Place the lime with about ten gallons of warm water in a thirty-gallon iron kettle over the fire. Add water as need ed to keep the slaking lime from sput teriii!r. stirrinsr freauentlv. When the lime is broken up into a pasty mas, add time is broken upinto a pasty mass, add ing hot water from time to time. When the color changes to clear brown, remove from the fire and add hot water to make fifty galons. Stir and strain through burlap or an iron or brass strainer with at least twenty threads to the inch. Use while warm. In using lime, provide cov ers for the horses for protection against the spray. Old cotton sheeting or bags sewed together will answer the purpose. Apply in the spring just before the buds open. Before spraying is attempt ed trees should be severely pruned and all loose bark scraped off. Absolute thoroughness in covering all scales? is necessary because the spray kills by contact only. In orchards of 100 trees or less, a good spray pump with a large air chamber, mounted on a fiftv-gallon barrel, will, an swer the purpose. All working parts should be of brass. It should be fitted with a twenty-foot hose, an eight to twelve-foot extension rod and a noir.Ie that will throw a fine, misty spray. At least two men will be required to oper ate the apparatus, one to pump and the other to manage the hose. Large spray ers with gasoline engine power are used in big orchards, s , Copyright, 1914, by the Monte International Agency. All Riht Reserved.)
