destroyed, the loss being $4,000, on

Dewev park there will be something at
tractive for tho veterans to-morrow fore
noon and fit the afternoon, too. At 10
o'clock in the morning the annual bus
iness meeting will be held, with a camp
fire to follow. It is understood that Dr.
Foster and Secretary Wilson will be re
turned to the offices they have held so
long. That is the prediction, if the
sentiment found at the park to-day
rings true to the feeling of the majority.
Enough of music and to spare there
will lie at the grounds to-night and to
morrow. Plenty of vocal talent from
Barre and Montpelier will be on hand
to sing the. old martial strains that
stirred men's hearts iu the dark days of

pavilion and the singers will not lack
for accompaniment. Then, too, the
Barre Citizens' band has been engaged
for this evening. A detachment from
the band joureney to the park this
afternoon and placed at the camplire.
In this connection, the passing of the
famous Getcbell drum corps should le
mentioned because of the prominent part
which the drummers and fifcrs from
Calais have plaved at the reunions .f
other rears. The death of Andiew
Getebell last spring removed the leading
spirit in the corps organization and at
the park to-day there was not a veteran

The bucket brigade was driven from be

they went to the roof and threw water
over the side, in that way preventing
the flames from being communlcated"tW
it.
Meanwhile the flames were being driv
en to the opposite side of the store and
they caught on the Campbell barn sev

guished. So the barn still stands.
The store had been conducted by Mr,
and Mrs. R. A. Campbell for about two
vears and a half, during which time the
postoffice had been .conducted by them
also. Mr. Campbell was not at home
when the fire broke out, having gone-to
the granite quarries nearby to work.
Neither he nor Mrs. Campbell can ac
count for the outbreak of the fire un

caused by a spark which fell through
