Charles Arnliolm of the Fulaee gar cge left this morning for the province of Quebec to bring back a Winton car belonging to Dr. K. H. Bailey, which wan abandoned there last June when a part broke and couldn't be fixed at that time. Only recently the part came, and now the car is waiting to be driven back. A young couple from Massachusetts arrived in Barre this morning at an extremely early hour, bound for points south, and having proceeded as far as Depot square, stopped, out of gas. The young fellow set out to make a tour of the various garages, but with no success, and it was not until 6 o'clock this morning that any assistance was obtained, and the two could continue on their way, A very interesting golf match was played over the Meadow Brook Golf cli1) course on Saturday between the home club and the Hartfo'ick Golf club of Hardwick, the result being that Meadow Brook won seven matches a,nd Hardwick one. Although on the los ing side, the visitors did very well, as a good many of the matches were not decided until the 18 holes had been played, the home players being more familiar with the course pulling thera through. That George H. Fraser ot Barre. now a professional golf player at the Wau banakee links in Burlington, is still playing up to the form which he main tained while In Barre is indicated by a statement in the Burlington News of July 20. saying that Fraser "sent any ing all previous records held by Hugh Gordon, fornurly the professional at Waubanakee." It seems that Fraser made the niie hole course in .14, cut ting one off the record made by Gor don and which has stood for four years. Fraser made the 18 holes in "i, cutting, two off the record made by Arnold J. Statz last year. In concluding the an nouncement of Kraser's performance, the article in the Burlington paper says: "Kraser, who has been at the local links for three years, is probably the most popular professional that has been at Waubanakee for some time. His enthusiasm and tireless energy have done much to add to the interest of local people in the links game." James Hillis of Elm street was still live this morning, though there was a time yesterday when he wouldn't have been willing to lay a plugged nick el on his chances of err seeing Barre again. He set off in his car for Dia mond mountain, armed with a com pass and some berry pails, and finally ran across an extremely promising patch, far in the woods. Leaving his car behind he penetrated into the mid dle of it, laid compass and coat on a nearbr stump, and commenced pick ing. Almost before he kneW it there rose in front of him a mother black bear and two cubs. ' Whether or, not he had picked any of the fur oft of them, Hillis did not take time to dis cover. One leap and he was off through the woods, bearing in his mind the pic ture of the mother bear busy demol-i-hing verv carefully and pleasantly his coat. When he finally came out into the open again he found that he was about seven miles from where lie left his car earlier in the day. Having at last found his car.
