I'aul Coolidn graduated from Dart mouth college in 1912 and will have the management of the new business. During a thunder aiorm in Water bury, last Sunday night, light ning struck the barn of E. J. Grout, three milea from the village, but did not aet it on fire. The lightning splintered a ventilator and entered the barn, killing an ox but doing no other damage. There were U head ftf cattle, four horaea and 30 tona of hay in the barn at the time. R. D. Fletcher, amative of Burlington, where he was born .in 1831, died Sunday at his home in Tituaville, Pa. Mr. Fletcher'a life wa noteworthy in that he wa a partner of John D. Rockefeller t the time the latter was a poor man and he furnished the funds that made pog ible the drilling of the oil well in that state, which was a gusher and out of which grew the Standard Oil company and Mr. Rockefeller's fortune. t Through the efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin C. Whitney the national govern ment has been apprised of condition in Alaska, and a number of high officials have been removed from office. Mr. Whitney i a son of George Whitney of Groton and a graduate of Dartmouth. His bride, formerly Miss Jessie J. Gibson of Burlington, was also a student at the Dartmouth summer school. In August, 1912, Mr. and Mrs. Whitney went to St. Paul's island, employed by the govern ment to teach the children and provide entertainments during the long winter season for the grown folk. They found such barbarous treatment and atrocities imposed upon the people that, after keeping a diary of scecnes they had wit nessed, they entered a formal complaint with the government. The charges are against government officials, who were supposed to have been protecting the simple Alaskan folk, but who were in reality imposing upon them the worst of cruelty. . Prouty Again Define Attitude. The Monitor to-day publishes the fol lowing letter from C. A. Prouty: ... "Newport, Vt., August 1. "V. H. Gilpin, Barton, Vt. "Mr. Kditor: Upon getting back to Vermont this morning my attention is called to the suggestion in your last is sue that I shall lose many Republican votes through my statement that I would not at this time accept a Repub lican nomination. Before you pass final judgment I would like to put: you, and through you, your readers, in possession of niy Kact thought. --- -- -- -. "I am running in this campaign as a non-partisan. As such I belong to no party. To put it in another way I have for this particular purpose formed a party of my own. I am appealing to all other parties for support, and I treat all parties exactly alike. Just as I have refused to declare myself a Progressive in order that 1 might receive the nomi nation of that party under that name, so I. cannot solicit nor accept a nomina tion aa a Republican although I do, a a non-partisan, most earnestly solicit the support of all Republicans who be lieve with me. "If elected I must register in Wash ington as a non-partisan, but I could not do that if I were nominated and elected as a Republican. "If this position alienates Republican support I sincerely regret it, but this has been mv attitude all along and I must try to be consistent and to play fair even if it should cost me the elec tion. . . "Very trulv yours, "C. A. Prouty." AUCTION SALES of any kind made anywhere. I am now ready to do the outside selling that, owing to other busi ness, I have for some time past been obliged to refuse.

In Windsor county from Dec. 1, 12, to May 1, 1014. the Wood-Morgan de tective agency was paid for services $2,215 and for expense $1,506.10, making a total of $3,721.10. Covering the same time under the head of detective service the sum of JU26.8S wa paid to local officer. Of the amount paid to the Wood-Morgan agency, practically one-third was in con nection with the investigation of the mysterious death of Eugene F. Carr, who was found dead by the roadside in Hartford, Oct. 1, 11)12, and in the in vestigation of state vs. Drown, charged with the crime of rape. Practically all of thia expense accrued before the pres ent attorney general took the office, but was paid afterward. In all, seven matter in Windsor coun ty, including those above referred to, have been the subject of investigation by the Wood-Morgan agency. Of these in one case (in re Eugene F. Carr) no prosecution was instituted. In one case (in re Drown) a nol pros was entered. The other five investigations resulted in prosecutions and convictions. In three of these sentence was to the state pris on, one to the house of correction, one to the county jail. In each of two cases a tine of $.iiK) and costs was imposed and collected. The mrmt important matter invest! sated in Windsor county was that of the death of frame .. ioidj- oi "w stock, whose dead body was found in a corn field near Woodstock village about one month after his death. The matter was investigated by the wood-Morgan detective agency. In connection with this case the state's attorney of Wind sor county under date of May IS, 1014, wrote the Wood Morgan agency as fol lows: "The finding of the body of Frank Tolby in a corn field in Woodstock, Vt., under circumstances which warranted the belief that he had come to his death bv foul means was a most baffling mys tery. I held an inquest at which 1 ex amined 63 witnesses. This inquest dc veloned the fact that the last man seen with him was George W. Briggs, who was in a team with Tolby apparently headed for White River Junction, Vt.. at quarter past ten on the evening of August 25. Briggs committed perjury at the inquest; so I had him arrestea on that charae and he was held in jail for the December term under $10,000 bonds. I was convinced that he either killed Tolbv or knew who did, but could find no evidence beyond the fact that he was with Tolby at the hour atore said. If there ever" was a case that war ranted the assistance of trained detec tives this was one and with the con sent of the attorney general I employed your agency and received from you very efficient service. Alter a most care ful investigation it became apparent to us all that the only way to clear up the mystery was to secure a confession from Briggs, and your operative, Mr. Stearns, with the assistance of Officer J. II. Ober and other county officials, skillfully obtained this result, llie con fession of Briggs made the crime man slaughter ami the state under the cir cumstances was obliged to accept this plea." The above is a fair and unprejudiced statement regarding this case. Briggs is now serving sentence in the stale pris on. Another important matter in connec tion with which detective service was used was the investigation of the escape of one Patrick McGowan from the state prison with the' assistance of one Laura Osmere. McGowan was finally returned to the state prison and Laura Osmere, who assisted in his escape, was prose cuted in Windsor county court and sen tenced to serve not less than one and a half years and not more than two years in the house of correction. The case in re Charles Batchelder was also investigated by an operative of the Wood-Morgan agency. Three ind:2t ments were found against this respond ent, one for obtaining funds by use of a fraudulent check and two for em bezzlement. To each of these indict ments the respondent pleaded guilty. A small expense was also made in the case of state vs. Gerling. This man was an old offender and had passed fraudu lent checks in several different counties in this state. He was convicted in Windsor county and is serving sentence in the state prison. In view of the serious nature of the matter investigated and the results ob tained, it is believed that no just crit icism can be made regarding the use of detective service in Windsor county. Respectfully, R. E. Brown, Attorney General. NURSE TELLS HOW TO PREVENT BED SORES Mrs. Ada L. Strange, trained nurse, Swansea, Mass., says: "I always use Comfort, Towder where I nurse.

Naeeaak 41M THE PUBLIC DEFENDER By F. A. MITCHEL In a western community Into which the people were Introducing courts of law John Bradshaw, a man to whom every one looked tip a a yery wise man. smg.wted that together with a public prosecutor they have a public defender. Mike Conover replied to the suggestion. "It aeema to me." he Mid, "that It's bard enough to get at the truth with a prosecutor to muddle the jury. If we haye a defender to throw up the ame amount of dust who's going to see through It alir But Mike had no standing with the community beside Bradshaw, who ws a large man with an impressive de meanor and seldom spoke, but when be did his words seemed to weigh a ton. The public defender was sppolnt ed, and the citizens congratulated them selves that justice thereafter would be provided for accused persons as well as for the state. The first person to come before the court wss Mike Conover himself. A robbery bad been committed In the town Involving the loss of a watch and about $10 tn currency. It had oc curred about 12 o'clock at night. Joel Harkness had been walking home when some one came op behind him, put bis arms around him, and a scuffle had ensued. The street was not light ed, and Harkness did not see his as sailant, who soon released his hold. When Harkness arrived at home he found that he had been relieved of a gold watch and chain and the money which he had carried in his vest pocket. He reported the matter to the police, who advised blm to say nothing about the matter for the present They were engaged in ferreting out other crimi nalities, and it would aid them If the criminal supposed that Harkness had pocketed his loss without reporting it. A few days after this Mary Doolan went to see Mrs. Conover, but, not finding her at home, sat down In the living room. Mary had very keen ears and, hearing a ticking, wondered where It came from. Making a search, she found a gold watch and chain In a bu reau drawer. Mike being a poor laborer, Mary knew that he could not afford any such timepiece and talked about her find to her neighbors. The Incident reached the ears of the police. A search was made of Mike's home and the watch' found. Harkness without hesitation identified It as his property. The bills he had lost were not found, but they could not have been identified If they had been found. Mike was arrested, and the public defender called upon him to hear what he had to say and prepare his defense. The lawyer was a young man full of the dignity of the law. He was am bitious to take a prominent part in politics and hoped to make capital for himself out of this bis first case ss public defender. Mike assured him that he was perfectly Innocent. He had gone out to work very early one morning and came upon a gold watch and chain lying on the sidewalk. He picked them up and took them home after his day's work, showing them to his wife and asking her what to do about it. Bridget said that the owner of the watch had doubtless dropped It unawares and would advertise it In a loss notice tacked to a tree or In the town paper, which would be issued In a few days. He had better be on the lookout for such notice. But nothing appeared on the trees or in the paper, and Bridget told Mike when be went to work on the day of his arrest that she would try to find the owner. The public defender listened to this statement with supreme contempt In the first place he did not believe it, In the second he could not prove it and In the third he proposed to show his Ingenuity in getting his client off. He asked Mike how much money he had, and Mike said that Bridget was his banker and he believed she had something like $200 In a stocking. The defender told him to bring It to mm. "Mike," he said, "your story would never go down with a jury. We must prove sn alibi." Mike didn't know what an alibi was, but he produced the $200. At the trial the prisoner was aston ished to learn that on the night of the robbery he was in a town fifty mile distant and at midnight was drinking in the Alhambra saloon with several witnesses who swore to the statement Th defendant made a strong case. and the prosecutor was much troubled to disprove the alibi, ne talked all day to gain time and during the night paid one of the defendant witnesses $10 to swesr that he had been mis taken in the man. This broke down the statements of the other witnesses for the defense, and the facta were so conclusive against the prisoner that he was convicted without tne jurors leav ing their seats. "Michael Conover. stand up. said the judge. "Have you anything to say why sentence should not be passed upon youT "I have," said a voice, and a man In clerical garb csme forward and ask ed to be sworn. Then he said: "Brideet Conover. the prisoner's wife. tame fo me recently to be confessed. She told me that her husband bad found a watch and chain and asked me what he should do to find the owner." Here was evidence that even tbe nbllc rro-ecntor did not think of re butting. Mike receive.! a new trial sud was acquitted by the Jury that bad convicted him and went forth a free mil.

Fred Lloyd May Not Operate Machine, Was in Two Accident. Rutland, Aug. (S. States Attorney B. L. Stafford of this city received word yesterday from Secretary of State Guy W. Bailey of Essex Junction that the automobile driver's license of r'red Lloyd of Fair Haven has been, 'suspended on recommendation of Mr. -Stafford. Mr. Lloyd has recently figured in two auto mobile accidents. He was driving a car, in which W. H. Dunn of this city was a passenger, which a few weeks ago left the highway near Castleton and ran down an embalm ment into a meadow, keeping right side up by good fortune. On July 28 a ma chine Mr. Lloyd was guiding met head on the car of William Bernard of Glen Kails, N. Y., on Green's bridge, near Glens Falls, P. W. Lalor of this city was a passenger in the Lloyd machine at the time. No serious damage was done in the collianon. Mr. Bailey states that he is preparing a letter to be sent to each constable and police officer in the state asking them to report to him any accident' that may come to their notice. In this way an im mediate investigation can be ukeJ for and a record made. Mr. Bailey believes that in the case of a-serious accident it is a good plan to suspend at once the license of the driver concerned and then make an investigation, restoring the license if the facts warrant such action. The secretary of state says that the va rious town authorities in Vermont have been lax in reporting automobile acci dents. Executor's Sale AT AUCTION At the residence of the late Mr. G, W.
