Everyone In Barre and vicinity had a vague notion Tuesday morning dur ing the thunder shower that lightning struck somewhere not many miles away, and in the course of events the fact that lightning dismantled the chimney of Eli King's house in lower Graniteville has come to light. U the time Mrs. King's attention was ab sorbed in working over a washtub.

Mr. King escaped injury and warned her 12 year-old daughter to move in time to prevent any harm being sustained by her.

Friends in Barre of Mr. and Mrs, W. A. Price, formerly of Barre, but now of Newport, will he interested in the following clipping from the New port Record concerning the marriage of their daughter, Miss lolet May Trice formerly a student in the Barre schools and previous to the family's departure from Barre a rlerk in the Woolwortli store: "St. .Mark's Episcopal church was the scene of a quiet wedding Sat urday evening when Miss Violet May Price, daughter of Sir. and Mrs. V. A Price, Glen road, became the bride ci Maurice Edward Willey, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Willey, also of this city. The ceremony was performed by Kev. A P. Banks, rector of St. Mark's. Owiny to the family being in mourning tin" wedding was very quiet. The bride was attired in a navy blue suit, geor gette blouse and hat to match. Mrai.d Mrs. nil lev left, last n'glit for a ten days' trip to Boston and Hartford. Thev will make their future home in Hartford, where Mr. Willey has a good position with the Hartford Electric Railway company. Both Mr. and Mrs Willey have many friends here who wish them much happiness. The Barre friend and acquaintances of Stanley 11. Averill, grandson of Mr and Mrs. I M. Averill of this city, will rejoice with him in the winning of the high honor attributed to bim in the Music Trade Indicator, in the article reprinted below, a great compliment to Ins salesmanship: Baltimore, Md June 9. The honors of a friendly. though spirited, battle in salesman ship held last month by the Knabe warerooms, Inc., this city, were carried otT by Stanley II. Averill, who went over the top $2,000 ahead of anv salesman in the concern's Washington or local organization. Considerable credit is due Averill as he worked his way up from the ranks of outside salesman and has been in the pisin industry only one year. He was given chance on tha floor two months go and showed his worth by fighting every minute for the prize. Mr. Averill, who ia 23 years old, served aa an artillery man in the 2jih division and was over seas 19 months. He fought on seven) fronts and saw action in three major engagements. Averill entered the trade in Springfield, Mass., but later accept ed a position with the Knabe ware rooms, Inc., and has met with success on every side since his arrival here. He is a native of Barre, Vt." At a regular meeting of Barre post No. 10, of the American Legion, it was voted last evening that the Legion club house on Church street be opened for public inspection next Wednesday evening, June 18. This opening will first be made at 2:. 10 and may be In spected by anyone from then until 5 o'clock in the afternoon. In the eve ning again it will be opened from 7 until 0 and from 0 until 12 oclock sll friends of the Legion msy enjoy a com plimentary dance in the Legion dance hall. This opening was settled up.'n since the work of remodelling the old schoolhouse into a comfortable club house is practically completed. Car penter and painters have finished work, plnmliers have practically com pleted all connections, and tdectrician are adding the ornamental fixtures. Five Legion members who have been doing the clean-up work nights and any spare time also consider the house in excellent condition for inspection. Practically all credit for the uccessf:il remodelling of this old achoolliouse into one of the most attractive Legion club houses in the state is due to William A. Murray, now a memler of the gran ite firm of Novelli 4 Calcagni, hut for merly local manager of the Harrison (ranite Co. Mr. Murray, a veteran of the Spanish-American war, went to the trouble of furnishing detailed draw ings from day to day of the various changes. The public ia invited in par ticular to note the design and different features of the remodelling, all of which are in accordance with Mr. Mm rave designs. The ingenuity of Con tractor A. B. Lane and Fred L. Pag in adapting all things to new uses can hardly be overlooked in this work, tor much expense was averted in this manner. MAKING CHILDREN EAT Nothing is ever gained by forcing a child to eat when it refuses food. Make sure that nothing is being eaten between meals to destroy the natural appetite, and if your growing child does not have a healthful craving for good, honest food at mealtimes there ia something the matter. Threats of punishment if the cliild does not eat will not correct the difficulty. A fitful-appetite in a growing child, t-DpeciulIy if the patient is pale, lan guid, nervous, irritable, and without ambition, usually means that the blood is thin. A non-alcoholic tonic such as Dr.-Williams' Pink Pill Is demanded. During her 'teens a girl lays the foundation for her future health. Lack of blood at this time may rob her of robust, healthy womanhood. It is of the greatest importance to administer to girls who grow pale and weak a safe tonic, and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills meet every requirement of the most careful mother. They make the blood rich and red and it carries renewed health and strength to every "part of the body. . Write to-day to the Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N. Y., for the free booklet, "Building. Up the Blood." Your own druggist sells Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, or they will be sent by mail, postpaid, on receipt of price, 60 cents per box. Adv.
