liroadway star, who needs no introduc
tion to the theatre-going public of Barre.
The leading female part" is taken by
Pearl White, picturedom's cleverest per
former, and the work of Miss White and
Mr. Daly easily surpass any ever seen in
a serial. The' balance of the east is up
to the expectation of the most critical
and the entire story has nut with in
stant success wherever shown. An epi
sode of this picture will be shown in this
theatre every Thursday. To-day, in ad
dition to "The Exploits of Elaine," three
other classy reels will be shown, while
the change" of vaudeville makes a pro
gram of merit. Advt.

ot the most favorable seasons in several
vears. The local ice company. Ward A
Sun, has cut and stored in its several
storehouses more than 7,000 tons of ice
since the first cold snap in late Decem
ber. The bulk of the crop was gathered
soon after the mercury went down to r2
degrees below the zero mark at Christ
inas time, as a second period of cold
weather put the ponds in excellent shape
for the work. In big figures the ieemen
believe they have sawed and transferred
to storage quarters more than H.000,000
pounds of ice of first q.iality. The tee
attained unusual thickness ami the iitf.iNM
cakes garnered during the seaison will
average 2.0 pounds each in weight.

This morning while driving up North
Main street, Charles Villa, a Granite
street man, had a rather disagreeable
dump. He was driving a rather spirited
horse ami when he got too near the side
walk opposite the Moore &. (Mens cloth
ing store, the sleigh struck a post. Th;
shock turned it turtle and broke off part
of the sleigh body. He was dragged as
far as the Hub restaurant before the
horse saw lit to stop. In this distance
nearly all the body of the sleigh was
stripped off, but Mr. 'tlla escaped with
out any very serious injury.

gum venders. When Magistrate II. W
Scott announced his findings a short time 1
ago ami intimated that the law hadiily
one fate in store for the furniture, At-j
torney R. A. Hoar declared he would I
carry the cse to the highest court in

ments of the warrant, the ollicers will

Business in the quarter ending Feb. 1
at city court was slower than in any
other quarterly period since P.J10. Ow
ing to a change in the statutory pro
vision for making reports to the state
auditor, the latest report of City .fudge
H. W. Scott covers December and Jan
uary alone, whereas the regular reports
under normal circumstances .are to be
made every three months. 'Heginning
Feb. 1, the usual schedule will be fol
lowed. In December and January. 2d
cases were recorded in court, and tines
and costs paid in to the state amounted
to $114.03. From the state treasury the
court received the sum of $1 05.00 t'o be
disbursed among court officers. Rack in
1911 there was a quarterly period when
only 112 eases were reported, while in
1910 the total in one quarter was much
smaller. With scarcely an- exception In
the past decade, the winter quarters, as
they are called, were prolific of fewer
arrests than in toe other quarters. On
the first day of the present month there
were 11 arrests and indications point to
a big month's business in court.
