BODY OF SUICIDE GIVEN TO WOMAN WHO PROVED CLAIM of Three Women Asserted That "Flash1 , Rogers Was Their Husband, But Houston, Texas, Woman Had the Best Proof. Boston, Sept. 3. The body "Flash" Rogers, a boxer, who commit ted suicide by gas, was given to-day to Mrs. Ruth E. Rogers of Houston, Tex as, as that of Manuel A. Rogers, her husband, after two other women had claimed it. The description which each woman gave' of her missing husband 'fitted the body almost exactly and the names were identical, but the possi bility that he had married all three was eliminated by the dates they gave It required several hours for the au thorities to dispose of the conflicting claims. Rena Rogers of Xew Bedford first claimed the body as that of the man she married in that city in 11)13. He disappeared in 1918. Ruth E. Rogers said she met the man while he was soldier in camp at Houston, Texas, in 11(17, and had lived with him since, except for the time of his service over seas, and a week before his death when they separated, after a quarrel While Medical Examiner William J Buckley was trying to weigh these claims, a telephone call came from an other woman, who had read of Rogers' death, and said he was her husband but her claim was thrown out, w-hen it was found that the body did not show a scar she mentioned. In each instance the woman gave the man's measurements, age and prinei pal items of description as the medical examiner had found them. A picture of Ruth K. Rogers in the effects of the dead boxer, and a reference to her. .in ths note which announced his intention to commit suicide, eventually estab lished her claim.

TOWN LISTER ON TRIAL. Charged with Undervaluation of Ver mont Marble Co. Property. Rutland, Sept. 3. A huge" pile of marble blocks, estimated bv the state's expert witness to be valued at $l,l!H, 624 and which is in the list at $20, 000 on which Vermont Marble com-- pany is paying taxes, was the first un usual evidence introduced in the pros ecution of the case of State against illiam R. Dwyer, a lister of the town of West Rutland, in which he ia harged by State's Attorney P. M. M. Phelps of Fair Haven with malfeasance of office. It is specifically charged that he understated the value of thia pile of marble blocks with intent to de fraud the town of taxes and in favor of the marble company. it is a unique case in more ways than one and when the trial started yesterday morning the chief counsel of the Vermont Marble company appeared as counsel for the respondent His at torneys now include Attorney L. R. Xoble and Edwin W. Lawrence, Bert L. Stafford and Asa Bloomer of the firm of Lawrence, Lawrence k Staf ford. State' Attorney Phelps is be ng assisted by hia partnor, Judge Leo E.

Lanthier, swore falsely as to the value of the personal property of the Vermont Marble com pany in West Rutland and also that he exempted certain other property, ncluding the Wcstland quarry and the ime plant of the same companv from axation without the authority of the oters. It developed yesterday that the slate's attorney in his investigation of he ease finds the town of West Rut land with a strange grand list for the present year. It is only sworn to by wo listers and it is said that one of these is disqualified. . In the years lOl.i and 1918 the county prosecuting officer could find no official records of the town meetings of those two years and no official document purporting to be the legsl call for the town meeting.

OVER laoo MOTOR ACCIDENTS -I Have Been Reported to the Vermont Secretary of State. The automobile acvidents in Ver mont have reached 1200, as reMrted to the secretary of state's office.

To-morrow morning marks an epoch in the life of the Barre Drug Co., when it opens the,doors of its new store and invites the public of Barre to inspect it. Excellent arrangement of depart ments, tastefully installed illumina tion and a pleasing amount of floor space are the mott noticeable features, of the store. s In many drugstores some of the de partments have been sacrificed to oth ers, particularly the musical depart ment. This is not true in the case of the new Barre drugstore.' Every de partment is on an equal basis, and each is so situated that there is no enroach ing or overlapping. Each has its own particular place. The entire establishment has reen fixed up in the most modern manner. The soda fountain has all the latest devices. Fruit wells, protected by a special patented top to prevent the en trance of dirt and flies, are only one instance of this. The fountain is a 20 foot united one, is aclf-refrigerating and made in a manner "which insures heathful conditions. Two draft sta tions and two sinks are added features. The entire stand is, composed of slate and marble, not a bit of wood being used in its manufacture. The new store has branched out in a new direction with its opening, and has installed a complete line of Fathe phon ographs and records. The rear of the room has been chosen as the best place in which to show these machines, as there the customer may have the feel ing of seclusion desired in many in stances. The ample space in the build ing also gives a listener an opportunity of hearing a record at a slight distance, allowing a better opportunity to gain the full tone at its best advantage. It is safe to say that there ia no better fitted out record and phonograph de partment in the city. Aa a special feature, the managers office is in the rear lefthand corner, and is raised to a height sufficient to allow a survey of every section of the room. Directly underneath is a mod ern laboratory for the prcparatian of prescriptions, well fitted out, and in easy reach of the various drugs re quired. In the" establishment of the tobacco department the management has again expanded, in an effort to offer tbe pub lie the best there is to be had An that line of soods, and has obtained the agency for the United Cigar store, carrying the best of cigars at the most reasonable prices. To a customer the appearance of the new store is one of the best. There is a large amount of open 'floor space, and it is in a compact form, rather than in extended alleyways. The woodwork ia mission finished in a pleasing green the walls washed with an attractive grayish green, and the ceiling of spot less white, dotted now and then by modern light fixtures, well placed and assuring the public of a soft light, clear, yet not dazzling. The front of the store contains three large show windows, and was designed by E. J. Bolen of Boston, the architect for the Black Theatre Co., to corre spond to the front of the new Black theatre now in process of construction. Two entrances appear, one fronting Main street, close to the expected exit of the theatre, and the other facing diagonally up toward City square, The new store will be under the man' agemcnt of Charles Zanleoni, jr., and Joseph Zanleoni. They will be assisted by J. K. Pheulpin, who has been em ployed in a similar capacity in Boston up to the present time. The soda foun tain will be under the direction of Brunetto Chiardi, who will have Ben Gmile, formerly employed at Lander's cigar store, as his assistant. The store will be opep to the public for the first time to-morrow morning. Everyone will have an opportunity to observe the modern equipment, the well lighted interior, and the well arranged departments, and nothing but a good opinion' of the establishment, thought, can be formed.
