Boston over the holidays and has just
returned with Jack Anderson and Jus
tin McCarthy, who accompanied him
on the trip. The three young men

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. J
He was quickly girea nrrt aid and
ruhed to a hospital, and upon arriv-j
at in Barre received treatment at the i

VT. John Barrett is taking charge of
his case. It was not until well into the

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
