Several complaints were made to the Dolice department yesterday aooui young lads playing ball on Currier park. This practice must be stopped and Chief of Police Sullivan, therefore, issues warning to this effect. The board of school comminsionera held a special meeting last evening to consider the selection of teachers for the high school from the applications brought back by Supt. White, who has been out seeking new teachers. The Barre Woman's club wish to ex press their sincere appreciation to all those who in any way helped to make successful the two presentations of "Springtime," and although they may not be able to thank eacTi one person ally they feel very grateful for all as sistance. Nat Batchelder of the Plainfield road had one of the most thrilling rides of his life yesterday afternoon while driv ing a team, loaded with hay, down Merchant street hill. According to re ports, Mr. Batchelder's horses became frightened at an automobile at the top of the hill and started to run. The momentum of the vehicle consequently increased rapidly down the hill and in an endeavor to "decrease this and pre vent his horses from being seriously hurt or possibly killed by accident, which seemed inevitable if the team was allowed to go straight down the hill. Mr. Batchelder reined his horses in a zig-iag path down the descent to lessen the momentum. Complete con trol of a pair of horses under suc h cir cumstances is impossible and when he discovered his horses on the sidewalk of Merchant street and hi team appar ently on the ergc of crashing into the iron fence and possibly goine" over the :)0 -foot embankment, Mr. Batch elder chose to let the horses and wagon go alone, if at all, though before jump ing to the ground he reined his hori.es away from the fence. The result were quite satisfactory as the team contin ued on its way "down the hill without collision, but "when at the jmrner of Summer and Merchant street the en tire load of hay toppled over with the wagon when the horses turned sharply south into Summer street. Mr. Pnquet and other men nearby stopped the horses, which were recovered by Mr. Batchelder, and aside from the task of reloading the hay nothing serious hap pened to anything.

White, superintendent of Barre schools, returned to this city yesterday afternoon, after making a business 'trip to Woodstock, Bethel and Randolph, learning of records of teach ers applying fr Barre school positions or engaging them for the next school year. Summer heat and weather conditions coming early in April have a telling effect on streets and roads, especially country road. Only yesterday an au tomobile truck loaded to capacity tra versed Oranste heights without ftfficnl ty or experiencing muddy travel. Of course, modern road construction elim inates considerably the possibility of mud or soft roads, but it is seldom that country roads in Vermont afford con venient travel so early. The Hard wk'k automobile stage has begun its summer itinerary between Barre, Montpelier and Hardwick, and commer cial auto traveling between Barre and Montpelier is quite satisfactory, the road, though rough, being dry and easi ly passable. Such condiflons have been attained by the oivasional strong winds, sunt-hine and existence of but little frost in the ground. Communication from Ensign Clifton Maker to his near relatives in this city bears the information that Ejisign Maker was attached to one of the big sea planes, the N'C-fl, which was one of the twelve planes sent by the I'nited States government to Panama about two weeks ago to cpiell any out break that wss threatening in that country. Mr. Maker is attached to the sea plane as a machinist, and gcs up with it every time it make a flight. He wrote home from Balboa. Bacque tot, Republic of Panama, but be for merly was stationed at San Diego, and his letter would indicate that he did not expect to remain in the canal coun try more than a month.

Damage of About $5O0 Don at Fran , Baithrow'e House. The fire department was called to Frank Baithrow's house on Hill street about supper time Wednesday evening for a Are that utarted near the garage and in which fhe damage has not been established nor the cause. Chief Per sons investigated the matter to-day. Posibly spontaneous combustion i-HiMud the fire, some $000 damage being done. The. department was delayed be cause the hydrant is in a field and seme tt.)0 feet of hose had to be laid before water could be used. The motor truck kliovred its worth In hill climbing, whore stops and a hard pull occurred. This is one of the worst hills in the city for apparatus to climb. Mrs. Frank Pratt, who broke one leg curlier, in the "week, is recovering as much as can be expected. Francis O'Heare of St. Albans wa here last evening for the Legion dance. The Montpelier American Legion gave a dance in the city hall last eve ning, attended by a fairly good number of couples, altho'ngh not as large ait xhould have been for the music pro vided. It was Ferdinando's marine or chestra and the music was excellent. The will of George It. Waterman, Ints of Xorthfield, has been presented for .prolate. Harold Howe, of Xorthfield was in the city earlier in tha week, making arrangements for the arrival of and servioea over the body of Taul Grand field, who was Killed in service in France. The second meeting in the formation of the Manufacturers' Association of Vermont will take place in Bailey hall in Montpelier Friday evening when it is expected 400 of the manufacturers of the state will be present and the or ganisation perfected. William L. Mc Kee ha had printed 1,500 letters, tell ing the story of the value Of the or ganization ai set forth by he informa tion received from the speakers from New Hampshire, who were present at the Ant session, and L. A. Kelty, for the publicity committee, has sent these to aa many manufacturers in the state. The nominating committee will have a list of officers to suggest to the assem bly when they meet Friday evening. Very likely that committee as well as the "publicity committee will meet in Montpelier Friday afternoon and will wofk out plans for the foundation of the different branches of work to place before the organization Friday evening, which will be perfected or changed later as the effort of the organisation seem to warnilit. It is hoped That a goodly number of the manufacturers in Wash ington county will attend the meeting.

Miss Bertha Bus jiell; associate matron, Mrs. Nellie Holmes; patron, Irving Henson; secre tary, Mrs. Jessie Kelty ; treasurer. Mrs. C. J.

The children's night will occur early in Mar. The quarterly meeting of the Ver mont firemen's relief fund commission occurred at the Hotel Vermont in Bur lington last evening, with all members of the ronunistoon present. Three claim were considered. Joseph Couter marsh of Hartford, a volunteer fireman, was injured by an axe falling and hit ting him on the back, escaping the spine and ribs, although an artery was cut. He was laid up 43 days. Henry J. Hosier, a call man in Rutland, was laid up 17 days and Ernest J. Bent ley, who wa fighting fire at Bennington and was nt a member of a company, but a volunteer. The first two were honored while the third wa held up until the TO AVOID PAINS OF RHEUMATISM When rheumatism is associated with thin blood it cannot be corrected until the blood ia built up. . The chief symptom of rheumatism is pain. Tho most successful treatment is the one that quickly relieves and ban ishes this disagreeable symptom. Many rheumatic people suffer pains that could be avoided by building up the blood. v . . Mr. Oscar Downs, who lives at No. 7 Ashland street, Haverhill, Mass., suf fered from rheumatism for years but ho was more fortunate than a great many victims of the disease, for he found a remedy that so built up his en tire system that he is now free from rheumatism. When seen recently at his home Mr. Downs saidt "I suffered from rheumatism, off and on, for years and at times it was so se vere that I was flat on my back for weeks My trouble began, I believe, when I caught a severe cold while in a badly run down condition. The cold seamed "to srttle in my joints. My hands became stiff and swollen at the joints and there were time when I could hardly uie them. They pained me all the time". There was alao a pain across my back. When I straightened up the pain went through me like a knife. Both my knees were swollen and ktiff and I was just able to drag my self along. I began to think that I should be a cripple all my life and be came greatly discouraged. "My wife had taken Dr. Williams Pink Pills with benefit bo I decided to try them. After takhig the second box I could feel that the pain was less se vere. The swelling gradually disap peared from my hands and knees and then I got so that I could walk without effort. I continued taking tho pilla until my blood was built up. The pills also strengthened my nerves and I sleep well now. I do not hesitate to recom mend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for they saved me from a life of pain." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are sold by your own druggiet or will be seirt d"ireet by mail, post paid, on reoeipt of price, sixty cents per box.

Mr. and Mrs. Jinks had come to that all-important part of naming thair new baby. Mr. Jinks, who, by the way, detested work, and liked nothing better than to sit in front of the fire and watch other people do it, wanted the baby named plain "Bill." "I shall name the boy William Oli ver Robert Kenneth," she asserted. "But why all those names!" asked her husband. "Because," replied Mrs. Jinks tartly, "if you look at the initials you will find that they spell 'work,' so perhaps when baby grows up he will take to it better than his father."
