ABANDONS BUSINESS ON CALL TO ARMS Claude Druge, Barre Tailor, Going to Fight for French Tri-Color In Re sponse to Appeal to Reserv ' ists Others May Go. There is reason to believe that a con siderable following of men between the military age limits in Barre and Barre Town may be liable to service in the great European strife, but the first man to receive a positive call to the colors is Claudn Druge, a tailor whose shop is on the second floor of the L. M. AveriB building. Since President Poineare's uc- famous declaration 01 rranc.es siai- o' the present controversy was pul a in America, Mr. Druge has been qii. ,. awaiting the summons. In came tilis morning from the consul-general's of fice on Bridge street, New York. The call is written in French and contains a moving appeal to all Frenchmen to rally around the tri-color. As he talked to a reporter this fore noon, Mr. Druge busied himself in pack ing his belongings into a small port manteau which he will take to New York. His bench and other tailoring accessories he will store in Barre for the time-being. The -tailor man let it be known that he means business and that all the customers in the world cannot keep him from fighting for his country if his services are needed. Druge saw three years of military service in a pro vincial regiment organized near Bordeaux. Afterwards he was placed on the reserve list and allowed to depart for America. By virtue of his service and the knowl edge of tactics gained in the three years he is in the third class of reservists and therefore likely to see some of the fight ing. Either to-night or to-morrow Mr. Druge Will leave for New York to pre sent himself at the recruiting ollice, 17 Slate street, no later than Saturday morning. , BLOW ON HEAD TOOK HIS LIFE William Ewen.
