Krnest Lafayette, veteran of the YD division, attended the reunion in Boston over the holidays and has just returned with Jack Anderson and Jus tin McCarthy, who accompanied him on the trip.

The tires on their car were in comparatively good condition when! about to start for Barre, but before they got here they had occasion to re pair 14 punctures or blowouts. A snske measuring full six feet long and known a a Texas roach-whip snake, escaped from one of the tents of the California Exposition f hows Co. on the. Berlin street grounds Tuesdsy sfternoon and though nearly all the employes of the company were put out in search the Texan succeeded in keep ing from sight. The trail it left as it escaped from the, ground over the sandy dry earth gae the hunters a clue to its whereabouts, and it was evident that the snake bad made fur the swamp at the edge of the grounds near the Canton Brother atoneshed. After making a thorough search the party was compelled by darkness to aoandon it. Yesterday James Shaffer, the handler of these reptile in the shows, took up the hunt again and found the enimal sunnyig himself in a garden adjacent to the grounds. Be ing a non-poisonous animal, Mr. Shaf fer had little trouble, after once lo-1 rating him, in the recapture. Mr. Shaf fer, the handler, who has visited Barre before with this same company, was bitten last Saturday In Berlin, X. If. by a Diamond black rattle-, one of the I most poisonous reptile in the world.

There is a rumor among railroad men that a movement ia on foot which would result in the Montpelier & Well Kiver lo. operating tne irnm iwiij between Montpelier Junction and Wil liamntown and do all of the yard shift ing in the communities through which the roads between these point oper ate. This, if it went into effect, would probably mean one station in Mont nelier and that the Central Vermont branch train would not operate. Prob ahlv the recent conference on other matters such as the remodeling of the nidinir in the Central Vermont and Wells River yard is th basis of the rumor, for it hardly seemed probable that such a program would be worked out.
