The annual meeting of the; Watettown
Mutual Protective-Association was held,
Tuesday evening, the 1 1th. The reports
showed amount of cash in treasury,
$C7.r:j and the expenses for the year had
only been 1.25. This association was
formed directly after a horse had been
stolen from F. B. Ilurd and a member
ship averaging mere than 50 has been
the number that has annually contribu
ted 50 cents each. Only one case has
been necessary to take up, which was
promptly attended to, the team restored
and the thief run into Canada, where he
is to-day. This cost the association $12G,
or about $2.50 each. The result has
been that the horse thieves have given
Watertown a wide berth and as a means
of prevention is worth more than it costs.
This association also prosecutes burglars
and incendiaries, and every property
owner in the town should be a member.
All that it costs him to do all that can be
done towards apprehending the rogues,
is his dues to the association, and no ex
pense is spared to carry out the objects
of the association, while an individual
might hesitate to his disadvantage about
putting out 100 or more. The old offi
cers were re-elected with the exception
of Secretary French, who declined. The
officers for the ensuing year are II. J
Mattoon, president; Charles Smith, vice
president; E. W. Wheeler,seeretary ; II
M. Hickox, treasurer. The association
