ASKS FOR PROHIBITION
Bellavod Trustees Would Be Backed
by Business Men Enacting an Ex-
eluding Ordinance.
Editor of the Banner: Do you not
think that the "Village Fathers"
would be carrying out the wishes of
every business man, and owner of
business property In town, if they
panned an ordinance forbidding the ex
ploding of cannon crackers anywhere
within the business limits of the vil
lage, (or belter still, eliminate them
altogether,) on the coming 4th of July
or 13th of August, or any other time?
The detonations made by these ter
rific explosions are exceedingly dan
gerous to the Integrity of the many
handsome plate glass windows In
town and it is fair to say that the ex
hibition of this sort of patriotism (?)
every year without protest from those
interested, Is not complimentary to
the well known good Judgment of our
people, ,
It seems to me now would be a good
time for the trustees to begin to reg
ulate the employment of these dan
gerous explosives. We have a splen
did board this year and I believe it
will only be necessary for the Banner
to bring the matter to their attention
to effect results tnat ninety-nine out
of a hundred of our adult population
will welcome with thanks too deep for
utterance. I am.
Very truly yours, '
Tax Payer.
CHANCE FOR GIRLS TO MARRY.
Lines of Business That Furnish the
Most Opportunities.
"I have noticed that girls from cer
tain counters in department stores
continually marry off,' said a clergy
man. "I refer to the counters that
men patronlze-r-the pajama counter,
the pipe counter, the haberdashery
counter. "and so on. Were I a girl
about to take a place In a depart
ment store, I should choose, even at
a lower salary, the pipe rather than
the ribbon line.
"Nurses, too, are a great class for
getting married. And they make good
marriages. They become the wives
of promising young physicians. It's
different abroad. Abroad a nurse is
treated almost as a servant. A physi
cian would regard over there a mar
riage with a nurse as a misalliance.
"Governesses, if the family travels
a good deal, marry the mates and
stewards of ships; With stationary
families their matrimonial chances
are less good, though now and then s
really pretty governess hooks in some
friend of wife or husband, a million
aire broker or publisher."

PROUTY 13 MORE SURE
Assurances of Support from all Quar
ters Convince Him,
Newport, June 21. It Is evident
from assurances of support coming In
from all parts of the state that people
generally realize Mr. Prouty has Von
his campaign for the governorship by
a majority ko pronounced that ho Js
sure to be tho rti-ubl'.mu caiulMute
next September. Reports given uiu
to the contrary during the past two
days are absurd in view of the infor
mation received at the Prouty head
quarters. A report was received by
telephone or telegraph from every
town In the state and statements
stent out from here giving the number
of delegates for Mr. Prouty Include
oalv.those known to be for him. Let
ters received during the past two
days from nearly every town In the
state verify the telephone and tele
graph reports received immediately
following the caucuses, and a number
of supposed Stanton men are an
nouncing their bellcX that Prouty is
sure to be nominated.
An attempt Is being made to class
all unlnstructed delegates as doubt
ful, but as a matter of fact there are
few doubtful delegates. For Instance
all of Rutland countys' 9i delegates
with the exception of five votes are
put in the unlnstructed column and
Prouty Is given no votes in Rutland
county by Stanton's statement, where
as the preferences of most of those
delegates are known at the Prouty
headquarters.
This difference In method of obtain
ing and treating information largely
explains the difference between the
two tables that have been published,
since .Prouty's support in Rutland
county alone added to the number
conceded him by Stanton would add
tremendously to his majority, to say
nothing of similar additions that
would have to be made to the Prouty
column In other counties by the Stan
ton statement. About the only
changes necessary ' to make in the
Prouty total of 433 are those result
ing from defections from the Stanton
ranks.
MANY MEN HAVE FREAK MINDS.
Better Able to Remember Complica
tions Than Plain Facts.
"Have you ever noticed what strange
hiemoranda man's mind makes?" asked
the observant Inquisitor. "You have
met people who cannot remember 2424
except as a number which they call
'twice 1212." That's an ordinary case,
but I think I got across a champion
freak mind the other day when I was
looking up a man who has been dead
for some 15 years. I got to his neigh
borhood and began questioning tho old
timers. 'Yes, I remember Charley
Johnson well enough, sure I do,' said
one old fellow. Then I wanted to know
what Charley Johnson's trade had
been. 'H'm, Charley Johnson's trade?'
answered my informant In a perplexed
ton; 'Charley Johnson's trade? Well,
darn it, what was his trade now? What
did Charley do, anyway? Just wait a
minute; I know that there Is some
thing here in the Abuse that will re
mind me what his trade was. Just let
me look around a minute. Let me see
what was It now? That's right, that's
right, there I have It. Charley was a
baker. That's right. You see that
there picture over there? It has some
Dutch writing under it That reminds
me of Dutch cake and makes me think
of it that Charley was a baker." Now
what do you think of that? Why
couldn't that freak mind Just as eas
lly remember that Charley was a ba
ker aa remembering the laborious pro
cess lor refreshing its memfcry?"

Commencement Exercises Held
Last Evening
OPERA HOUSE WAS CROWDED
Essays and Orations of the Graduat
Ing Class Were Above the Average
In Quality.
The largo and admiring audience
which attended the thirty-first annual
commencement exercises of the high
school lit, the opera house Monday
evening, was more than pleased with
the varied and Interesting program
carried out. The essays and orations
were exceptionally good and showed
much careful preparation and thought
on the part of the graduates and careful
training by their instructors.
The stage was tastefully decorated
with ferns, flowers and palms and pre
sented a striking appearance when
fully lighted up. Over it was sus
pended a banner bearing the class
numerals '08 in electric lights which
were turned on with a very pleasing
effect as the graduates marched on
the stage.
The orchestra opened tho exercises
with a medley of well known school
songs. The Invocation was then pro
nounced by Rev. II. S. Rowe, pastor
of the Methodist church. The pre
sentation of the class by the principal
was omitted this year.
The first essay of the evening The
Indian in Romance" was charmingly
read by Miss Kathryn Jenney. The
ohnracter added to fiction by the real
natives of our country and the ro
mance connected with the loss of
their lands was vividly described.
More Interest is being felt yearly for
these poor despoiled people and she
predicted that In the future they
would be given more of the respect
due to them.
Roy C. Denley delivered a forceful
and interesting oration entitled, "The
I nited States Among Nations. In
It the speaker declared that all the
nations of the world In times of peace
or .war, prosperity or distress look to
our country for advice and help. The
influence of our diplomats at the
Hague peace conferences was cited as
one of the many examples of this fact.
"Joan of Arc" by Miss Florence M.
Quinlan was one of the most interest
ing essays of the evening. The simple
lire, glorious deeds and tragic death
or this peasant maiden whom the
church has declared Blessed, were
vividly pictured to the audience in a
most pleasing manner.
One of the most practical and in
structlve orations was, "A Plea for
Good Roads," delivered by J. Guy
Livingston. The necessity of having
i?oo(i roads in our community and the
Desi means 10 attain mis end were
fully discussed. The speaker closed
with a plea for better roads and the
Use of limestone Instead of "hard
heads" in the building of our local
macadam streets.
"Forestry," one of the live Quest
ions or me aay, was discussed In a
very able manner by Raymond C. Per
cey. The need of the united effort of
all the people in preserving the
forests already remaining and the
planting of trees for future use were
the points chiefly urged.
Miss Margaret M. Dwyer delivered
her essay, "The Pathway to the Pio
neer" In a most able manner and held
the attention of the audience from
start to finish. The lives and works
of pioneers in literature, religion and
eaucauon sucn as Homer, St. Patrick,
. . ,7i . .. ouier" were l0ia
in a very-interesting wav.
"Cecil Rhodes" one of the mont In
nuentiai.men of his time In South
Africa, was given a glowing tribute
by Frnncis W. Smith. The awarding
in u rwiocies scnoiarsuip to a Vermont
student this spring gave the subject

The great contrast between the old
nurse of Dickens' time and the dainty
trained nurse of the present day was
viviaiy described by Miss Llla F.

of this town:
F. H. Estabrook and Miss Oma Hen
ry, both of this place, were married in
Mem. his, Thursday evening, Rev,
Hu;:h STpencer Williams officiating.
1 he marriage was a very quiet one,
only a few friends witnessing the cer
cir.ony, which occurred In the parlor
of tho Court Avenue Presbyterian
church. The bride was dressed in
a traveling BUlt of Copenhagen blue,
with hat and gloves to match.
Immediately after the marriage Mr.
and Mrs. Estabrook left over the
Southern railroad for Washington,
New York, Bennington, Buffalo, Niag
ara and other points.
The bride was reared In Humboldt

generally. She has been connected
with the postofliee for several years,
and will be missed from her accustom
ed place at the money-order window.
The groom Is a valued employe of
the Eclipse Marble Works and has
made many friends during his resi
dence here by his gentlemanly de
meanor. ,
Their many friends wish them much
happiness In their married life,
They will make their home in Hum

ALLIGATORS FOR THE CAMERA.
Amphibians Easily Managed Accord
ing to This Story.
I have seen a . barefoot boy, when
the alligator refused to respond to bit
call, wade In the mud to his waist, ex
plore with his toes till he felt the wig.
gle of the 'gator beneath them, then
worry him to the surface, grab him by
the none before he could open his Jaws
and tow the creature ashore to be pho
tographed. When an alligator that we
were hunting crawled Into his cave I
held a noosed rope over his mouth.
while the boy poked a stick through
the mud until it bit the creature in his
hiding place, and soon I had him
snared, ready to be dragged out on
the prairie and tied, to be ' kept till
the camera man was ready for him.
Then we turned the reptile loose on a
bit of prairie, and the boy and I armed
with sticks, headed him off when he
tried to escape, while the camera man,
with his head lu the hood of his instru
ment, followed the creature about
seeking for evidence in the case of
"Reason vs. Instinct." When the
camera man was through with him
he -"'Kator was set free, a final shot
being taken at him as he walked off.
Our hunter boys could never be made
to comprehend our reasons for restor
ing to the creatures their freedom.
They understood the photographing,
but when this was done, why not col
lect a dollar for the reptile's hide?
Their manner implied that to thii
question no sane answer was possible.

DOGS WORTHY OF ALL HONOR.
Recorded Instances of Sublime Devo
tion to Their Masters.
Many a deed has been done by doge
which would, it done by men, have
been honored by the Order of the Vic
toria Cross, says The Dawn. In devo
tion the dog Is superior to all other
animals, not even excepting man.
'How could one get relief from the
endless dissimulation, falsity and
malice of mankind," exclaimed Schop
enhauer in one of his Inspired mo
ments. "If there were no dogs Into
whose honest faces he could look
without distrust?"
A dog will follow a handful of rags
wrapped around a homeless beggar,
May after day, throujh heat and cold

.......... .. ... .
faithfully as he will follow the purple
of a king.
The dog who stood over the lifeless
body of his master, grieving for recog
nition and starting at every flutter of
his garments till he himself died of
starvatlon, had in his faithful breast
a nobler heart than that which beats
In the bosom of most men. And the
devotion of Greyfrlars Bobby, who
every night for 12 years, In all kinds
of weather, slept on his master's grave,
was well worthy the marble tribute
which to-day stands in Edinburgh to

Real Honesty.
A story is related of a young man
who was recently married .to the
daughter of a wealthy merchant The
groom did not have a penny, but he
was honest He was so honest that
he would not even prevaricate In the
marriage ceremony. He was repeat-
in what the minister said.
"With all my worldly goods I thee

This was real honesty. Sketch,

DEATH OF HENRY WHITE
8on of Mrs. Ella White of North Ben-
' nington
The village of North Bennington was
shocked this morning to learn of the
death of Henry White, son of, Mrs. El
la White of Factory Lane, having pass
ed away this morning at 1:45 a. m
after an Illness of about eight weeks,
being taken sick with rheumatism,
later developing into typhoid fever,
causing inflammation of the valves of
the heart.
Mr. White was 17 years of age, was
born In this town, and always made
his home here. Of late years he had
been employed by W. J. Hurley, being
faithful to his work and loyal to every
one. A young man of good character,
an attendant of the Baptist church
and a member of the Young Men's
Baptist association. He leaves a
mother, two sisters, and a younger
brother to mourn his loss, besides his
uncle, Luman White and family of this
place and an aunt, Mrs. George Cole
of Arlington and several other near
relatives. There has been no definite
arrangement made for the funeral as
yet.
OF INTEREST TO THE JUDGES.
They Were Concerned In Authorship
of 8hakespeare's Work. .
The question for discussion before
the debating society that had met in
I the little scboolhouse belonging to Dis
trict No. 13 was this: "Resolved,
I That the works published under the
name of William Shakespeare were
really written by Lord Bacon."
The debate was fleroe and prolonged,
but, as frequently happens in such
leases, the disputants on one side had

Hence the "Baconians," havlngiearned
all that could be said in favor of their
contention, made really a very plaus
ible case and had decidedly much the
better of the argument At the close
of the discussion the three Judges
who had been selected held a brief
consultation, and decided in favor of
the negative.
"Why did you decide against us?"
subsequently asked one of the dis
putants. "You know we presented
good arguments, while the other fel
lows didn't show any."
That's all right," answered the
Judge to whom this question was ad
dressed, "but two of us had Just
bought expensive copies of . The
Works of William 8hakespeare,' that
cost us $15. Do you suppose we were
going to acknowledge that Shake

The most conspicuous trait whloh
has been revealed in the character of

16,000,000 is a fair average. Suppose
there were but a single pair ef oysters

TWO WHITE MEN KILLED
One Confessed Negro Assassin Taken
to Jail by Guard of Stat
Militia.
Houston, Tex., June 23. Nine neg
roes are dead as a result of the recent
killing of two white men in East
Texas. All of the negroes were un
der thirty years;
Two weeks ago Hugh Dean and sev
eral other white men attended a dance
at a negro church in Sabine County,
during the course of which there was
a fight and Dean was killed. The
negroes made up a purse to enable the
guilty one to leave the county. 0111
cers investigated the affair, and six
negroes were arrested and Jailed at
Hemphill.
Then was much muttering but no
further violence Until Saturday night,
when Aaron M. Johnson, a well known
white farmer of Sabine County, was
shot through the window of his home
and killed while he was lying on a
cot. playing with his child. State
rangers made an -investigation and ar
rested Perry Price, a negro, who had
worked on Johnsons place. Price
confessed that he had eommltted the
crime and implicated "Bob" Wright
a brother-in-law of Johnson.
When this became known Sunday
night a mob went to the Hemphill
jail and took the six negroes out five
of them being hung to the same limb
oj.one tree. Frank Williams ran and
was shot' Inere were one hundred
and fifty men in the mob. The Jailer
was overpowered and his keys were
taken from him.
"Rabbit Bill" McCoy was shot and
killed the same night while standing
at the gate of Aaron Johnson s bouse,
A loaded pistol was found by his side.
The bodies of two unknown negroes
were found in the creek bottom yes
terday morning.
Wright, the brother-in-law of John
sou, and Price, who confessed to
Johnson's killing, were taken to Beau
mont under guard of the San Augus
tine Rifles of the National Guard.
