CAMP 75 North Main Street Barre, Vermont Summer Pleasures without Summer Discomforts! Indoors it's sticky and moist. On the porch it's cool when the Vudors are down. Why not eat, sleep, live there this summer? Thousands do it. The cool air gives appetite and forces you to dreamless sleep because it bathes the nerves wAi'o you sleep. It cure them. Vudor Porch Shades cost little. They give air but keep out glare. You can look out through Vudors, but not in through them. They last they keep "that new look," for they're stained, not painted, nor dipped. Authorized Agents for Barre . W. Hooker & Co.

Around 100 friends and relatives of Miss Louise Boulriee gathered at the Last Barre opera house last evening to remind her of her birthday anniversary. Dancing was the principal diversion of the evening, music being furnished by the Boulriee orchestra of four pieces. The guest of honor received a gold-piece as a reminder of the occasion and before the party dispersed she received a fusil lade of congratulations. A dainty lunch eon was served at intermission.

The bearers were: Peter Dewey, George White, George Dumas, Wilfred Pine, Mr. Moss and Mr. Jerue. Many Barre people attended the fun- ral. The usual weekly open-air concert by the Citizens' band will be omitted this evening on account of the presentation of "The Price," by the Newman Dramatic club in the opera' house. Next week mu sic lovers will be compelled again to forego the pleasure of outdoor music, as there is an unwritten rule which inhibits the band from giving concerts during commencement week. So the next con cert will not be heard until week after next. Meanwhile the musicians are re hearsing assiduously for the series of 13 remaining concerts to be held on each Wednesday evening during the summer months. Next Saturday the city council and the mayor plan to make a trip to Bur lington for the purpose of inspecting the Queen city's garbage collection system. The trip is a part of the investigation which the city fathers are conducting preparatory to providing some meaus of removing refuse and rubhisli in tnis city along systematic lines. For three years now the matter lias been uiseussen by as many councils. At various times feas ible 'plans for solving the garbage prob lem have come out in the light, but for one reason or another a definite working program for the removal of garbage ac cumulations on every street has never been obtained. The recent clean-up cam paign awoke a desire on the part of the council to preserve the cleanly appear- once into which the city emerged after "pick-up" day. It has been predicted that the end of another year will see an efficient collection system in operation. An all-pervading gloom settled down over one section of North Main street round suppertime last night when "Sic-O," the big brindle bulldog that has made his headquarters at the Co-operative store on Granite street for so many years, learned what happens to a dog when he gets in the way of an automo bile. Although muzzled to the ears, "Sic-O" was having a friendly bout with a houn'dog in the middle of the street at Depot square, but frequent changes in the methods of attack pursued by the two presently shifted the scene to the flagging in front of the Miles block. It was when the brindle drew back to re connoitre the position of the enemy that Dr. W. E. Lazell's runabout came along and nipped the belligerent bulldog on one of his rear legs. ".Sic-O" set up such a deafening veil that pedestrians, moved to sympathy, took account of his in juries. One broken leg was enough to convince the most sanguine that the dog's days were about to be ended. Lat er a policeman was called to put the animal out of his misery. Horsemen and lovers of the racing game in Barre will be interested to learn that the Dog River Valley Fair associa tion has secured the services of the vet eran, Frank Muzzy, of Pittsfield, N. II., to act as starter for the trotting events at Northtield fair, September 8. ! and 10. It will be recalled that Mr. Muzzy was in Barre to start the last races that were run over the Granite City trotting course off Avers street. Yearly his services are sought by fair associations all over New England. At a recent meeting of the Dog River directors, it was decided to feature an aviator from the Wright Aeroplane company, who ia to make three flights daily. The fair is to be the 4'2nd annual exhibition of . the as sociation and early plans are already takimr shaoe. A number of Barre men are interested in the association this year. i t t X a.WW . . .
