Mrs. Ashton Tells What the Woman's
Club has Done at Rutland
"Civics" was the ' subject of tho ad
dress given by Mrs. Oliver C. Ashton
before the Fortnightly Saturday ulter
noiin. Mis. Ashton who irf president
of the Vermont State Federation of
Women's clubs, was introduced "by
Mrs. W. K. l'utnam, chairman of the
committee on Civics.
Mrs. Ahhton, in her very interest
ing; tail;, told of the work of the wom
en's clubs in Rutland along civic lines
their efforts directed toward the bet
terment and beaut living or the city.
Some of the most important phrases
of their work were to aid in keeping
the streets of the city free from litter,
to influence the city hoard to provide
benches in the parks, to bring about
an inspection of the city markets in
the interest of pure food and perhaps
the most important venture, llu or
ganizing of Junior Civic leagues. The
latter euleipllze, Mrs. Ashton felt,
was of great importance because of
its great help to the younger genera
tion who will be the citizens of the
future. Their membership in this
league influences the children to be
better citizens by making them feel
that they have a part in the beainify
lng of their own city, in pledging
themselves to do every thing for its
good. Mrs. Ashton also spoke of the
phase of this movement regarding
child labor which is instrumental in
furnishing rightful employment for
Hundreds of
oatterns and
Going like the pro
ve rbial hot-cakes.
You'll understand
why when you see
and realize the ex
tent, variety and
moderate priceness
of this very large
stock larger than
many Troy stores
carry so we are
the child.
Mrs. Ashton showed how much the
women's clubs were doing throughout
the country for the betterment of civ
ic conditions and she did not fail to
speak of the true conception of the
word citizen and the efforts of the
Federation to bring about ideal citi
zenship. Before closing, Mrs. Ashton spoke
of the scholarship given by the State
Federation to go to the support of
some deserving young woman in one
of our state normal schools. Mrs.
Ashton said, that in view of the edu
cational conditions in the state it
would be a help and a benefit to Ver
mont, where there is a crying need of
trained teachers. She also touched
on the subject or the Ohristnias stamp
lou,(M)(i or which are to be issued by
the general Federation, the runds to
be used in the tuberculosis campaign.
The cost or the stamp which is to
have no postage value will be 1 cent.
A few remarks about the value of
a membership in the General Federa
tion and its help to the Fortnightly
closed the very interesting talk which
was filled with many helpful hints
and showed the great work which the
women's clubs in this state are doing
and a glimpse into the vast amount of
good done by the General Federation
throughout the country. The singing
of the song "Vermont" written by
Helen M. Winslow brought the pro
gram to the close, after which an in
formal reception was given Mrs. Ash
ton in the chapel where tea was served.

Tammany Candidate Denounced
By Priest
Recalls His Divorce and Likens His
Case to That of the Irish
Leader, Parnell
New York, Nov. 1. ISx-Justice Wil
liam J. Gay nor, Tammany candidate
for mayor, was denounced from t he
iltar of the Konian Catholic church of
St. Athanasius at Fox tnd Tiffany sts.
the Kronx, by the pastor, the Rev.
William J. Dougherty at yesterday's
mass as an apostate to his church and
a man ot immoral life, who, denying
his former membership in the Order
of Christian Brothers had denied God
Without once mentioning the candi
date's name the priest appealed to his
congregation not to be carried away
by party enthusiasm in this election,
but to vote according to their consci
ences, lie further asserted that
Archbishop Farley had tried to prev
ent Mr. Gaynor's nomination because
he was offensive to Uomun Catholics,
but had appealed in vain. After the
sennmi Father Dougherty said that it
was Mr. Gayuor, although he had not
mentioned the candidate's name to
whom he had referred.
The priest took for his text "Ren
der unto Caesar the tilings that are
Caesar's and unto God the things
which are God's" (Matthew xcil 21)
He began by saying that now, on the
eve of an election, his parishioners
should render unto Caesar the things
which were Caesar's; but while God
demanded this, there should also be
a rendering to Him of the things
which are His.
"Do not let us permit enthusiasm
and party feeling to carry us away In
the next few days," he continued. "Do
not let us be carried so far as to vote
for some one who is unlit to rule ...s
w underfill -city of ours. Let us exer
cise our consciences and our reason
and vote for a man with a conscience.
"There Is one candidate who seeks
our otes who is utterly unworthy.
This man has denied that he was ever
a niemlier of the Order of Chrltttian
Brothers. It is not so. I have a let
ter written by liroiher Jerome of
Manhattan college In which he says
that this man was connected with
that order and for several years was
a teaching brother in that order. I
do not question his right to leave that
order but he has not the right to ?leriy
that he was ever a member.
"This man has denied his God. He
has turned traitor. His wife divorced
him on the most serious of charges.
Such a violation Is one for which the
Irish will not stand. The fall of Par
nell for this Is within our memory.
Now comes a man who has been guil
ty of the same offense against socie
ty and his God and asks us to vote for
him. Let our answer be the right
one. lie is an atheist., a man who
has violated the sacred marriage tie.
"I am a Democrat and on Tuesday
I will vote the Democratic ticket but
I will cut off the head of that ticket."

As there Is often some one in your
family who suffers an attack of Indi
gestion or some form of Stomach
trouble, --why don't you keep some 1)1
apepsln in the house handy?
This harmless blessing will digest
anything you can eat without the
slightest discomfort and overcome
a sour, gassy Stomach five minutes
Tell your pharmacist to let you
read the formula plainly printed on
these 50 cent cases of Pape's Dia pep
sin, then you will readily see why it
makes Indigestion. Sour Stomach,
Heartburn and other distress go in
live minutes and relieves at once
such miseries as Belching of Gas,
Eructations of sour, undigested food,
Nauseu, Headaches, Dizziness, Con
stipation and other Stomach disord
ers. Some folks have tried so long to
find relief from Indigestion and Dys
pepsia or an out of order stomach
with the common every-day cures ad
vertised that they have about made
up their minds that they have some
thing else wrong or believe theirs is
a case of Nervousness, Gastritis, Cat
arrh of Stomach or Cancer.
This, no doubt, is a serious mistake
and your real trouble Is, what you
eat does not digest; instead, it fer
ments and sours, turns to acid, Gas
and Stomach poison, which putrify in
the digestive tract and intestines and
besides poison the breath with naus
eous odors.
A hearty appetite with thorough di
gestion and without the slightest dis
comfort or misery of the Stomach, is
waiting for you as soon as you de
cide to try lipf' Diapepsin.

New Cases and Disease Seems to
Ee Fast Disappearing
Kditor of the Banner: In t'eply to
iiimerous inquiries it has been
bought best to issue a statement,
hat people may know the exact situ
ition. At this date there are twelve
uses of scarlet fever in eleven fain
lies, all but two of which are situa
ed in Ward 7, or this village.
Neither during the past two months
nor during the preceding ten years,
has there been a known instance of
he disease spreading from the pa
ient in the family to other members
if the same household, nor from one
amil to another anywhere.
The disease appears to come from,
is yet, some undefined source.
Beginning with June 10, BIOS, there
vere seven cases In as many families
reported, and several of these linger
ed well along into the autumn. These
in addition to the present out break.
Dining the existence of the earlier in
stances there was no spreading of
scat let fever in the households, nor to
:ther families.
In this conned ion the writer ex
tends thanks to Professor Varney and
1 ho teachers of Bennington Graded
Schools, as well as to the phvsiclans
of the town, for their assistance, with
out which this disease would, un
doubtedly, have become more identic.
II. L. Stillson, Health Ofllcer.
Note. Since the above was written,
'he number of patients has been re
duced one-half; and, in a few days, a
further reduction will take place.
There has been no new case of scar
let fever reported since October 21st.

this morning, five bucks and two doe.
I'o help out the display there was the
skin of the fox shot by W. H. Brad
ford in the Dunville district and a
coon killed by W. H. Nichols in Stam
ford. According to some of the stor
ies on' the street Nichols shot so
many of his cartridges at the coon
that he would have had none left to
kill a deer had he been fortunate
enough to see one.
'i'W biggest buck of the seven, and
one of the largest ever brought iuto
town, was shot by Trenor P. Gregg
late Saturday afternoon. The atiiW
