The Pari -dressmakers have produced a great sensation by advertising the high society i.ji.. now fnr their fine dresses. Tho Brattleboro' dressmakers and milliners could probably show some unexpected names in their list of "lieats." Walter Men ill, son of Rev C H Merrill, of West Brattleboro, had one side of his face bad ly burriod with gunpowder from a toy cannon, Julv 4. Ernest Winchester also received a charge of powder in one of his cheeks from a gun barrel with which he was playing. Dr Geo P Tvlerof Lanslngburgh, N Y, will . preach at the Congregational church Sunday. The son of Commodore Theodore P Green, f the Andovcr Theological seminary and a grad uate of Amherst college, will preach in the same church the first Sunday in August. Mrs E T Housh's engagement on tho "Sig nal" at Chicago is for only one year, during . the absence of the editor in Europe. Brattle boro people will all be glad to learn that she will then return here to her cheery work among us. She will continue her literary management of the Woman's Magazine here while at Chica go.

Aout 400 people attended the picnic of the Baptist, Congregational and Methodist socie ties at Sylvan grove, Bernardston, Wednesday. Six cars left here at 8 :30 in the moraine, and many went down on the ten o'clock train, while othors went with teams. .The day was fine and was passed most enjoyably in games, races and other sports. It was a basket picnic, but cof fee, ice cream and lemonade were furnished in ' abundance. The picnickers returned home on the five o'clock train. ; W W Newcomb has placed with J G Ul . lery of the Reformer Job Department, an order for 5000 copies of "Newcomb's Guide to Brat tleboro and Vicinity." " This guide is a neat lit tle pamphlet of 28 pages, and besides the R R Time tables, a table of distances and fare's, stages and express lines, and similar matter, it will contain a fund of useful knowledge lor everybody. The work will be delivered by Aug. 1 , and every one should call and pet a copy at Newcomb's jewelry store, as it will be gratis. Charles Chandler inquired of Dan Bresna lian Wednesday night "how his liver was." Dan undertook to show him that it was in vig orous condition, and thev bad it all the way from the Estey stables on Birge street to Dan's house on Elliot street. They once agreed to go up in the Charlier woods to have . it out, but the spectators were too numerous. They did considerable jawing and some pommelling. Dan went down three times, but still vows that he will lick him. ) Prof John M Klein, a somewhat noted as tronomer of Kentucky, predicts a brilliant comet in the s6athwestern heavens early in Au gust or the latter part of July. He says that he can now see in the heavens the orbit of the comet, made visible to bim by the streak of gaseous matter that ' always 1 follows In the wake of a great comet. It is impossible, he says, to see it at present, as it is traveling in the orbit of the sun, whose brilliant light during the day prevents the human eye from gaging at it. The deflection by the latter part of July or the first part of August, will, however, bring it al)ove the horizon during the early evening hours, when it will be plainly visible ana wden it will he a comet of the first magnitude. The Louisville Courier-Journal says that Prof Klein has heretofore predicted comets with unfailing accuracy. The Boston Journal has been, Ratherlng fig nres and estimates of this year's bay crop in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. From its reports from 300 different points it concludes - that the Vermont crop, which usually reaches 1,100,000 tons, will fall about 200,000 tons short. This represent a loss of about $2,000,000 to our farmers, for only a part of which it will be possible to reconn themaelves in bieLcr prices, either for their hay or beef. The experience of last winter, in which bundreds or tnousanns oi dollars were spent to bring hay Into the state, will have to be repeated, and the outlook Is certainly not an encouraging one. New Hamp shire's hay crop is never over about half of Vermont's, but it is estimated that it wilt fall from 447,000 tons last year to 401,000 ton", and Maine's from 1,123.000 tons to 963,000 Everything seems to have contributed to the trouble. The winter was unfavorable in most sections and there are great patches of winter killed puss. In the spring the prospect was favorable, but the severe drouth in June was very disastrous. The late rains bava caused the grass to thicken up approciablv, and as the fanners have generally waited for"i the dam age Is partly repaired. Co! Wm Austine baj presented the cele brated "wall" enn from Mexico to the Col John S Tyler ramp No 2 Sons of Veteran, for salute firine Memorial day and otber occasions. This "wall" gun was nsed on the walls of a fortreos, bad a musket flint lock on one side of the breech to explode it; it swung by it trunnions on an iron wmi-cirole, with a pia'ile bolt let into the upper surface of the wall, that the gun coold not be moved in any direction and with out recoil when fired. It was loaded with a tin rase containing twelve musket balls, and kept off the storming party when the fortress wa at tacked.

It wa tored in toe arsenal in the City of Mexico, at the date peace was declared with the United Wates this arsenal wa restored to the Mexican government. The Mexk-anVmn who relieved Col Austine, the American officer tn charge, resented this gun to the latter a a memento of be orcaioo, and the colonel brougbt it home.

Intelligence was received Wednesday of the death at St Paul, Minn, of Marv A, wife of Rev J Marvin, and slater of F H Harris of this place. As she has suffered from a lung trouble tor manv years it is supposed that this was the cause of "her death, though no particulars were received. Her remains are on the way here for interment. It is said that at the recent convention of the stat- medical society at Bellows Falls there was a long debate of the doctors over ac cepting the invitation of the local brewers to inspect their brewery.

In speakins of the recent commencement exercises at Middlebury college (the Congreca tionalist says : The graduating orations, July 1, were of great merit, original, practical and well delivered. Special mention should be made of G S Lee of Brattleboro, whose "Plea for the Individual" had an individuality of thought and style that was creditable to the Ipeaker and heard with the closest attention.

John Gleason, the painter whose face Mike Kelley gashed in a drunken row on the island a few months ago, was caught by Officer Alls carrying off a ladder from the basement under the wash room of Ray's stable about 3 o'clock Sunday morning.

Enginear Clark met the bailiff and a num ber of the citizen Monday to report upon bis survey of the Valley railroad line oack oi the Main tret tore, and of his interview with the road' officials at Springfield. He found the fxrt.a as reported last week, that the railroad. the blacksmith shop, and one side of the nar row gauge track are upon private land against Col Hooker' property, and perhaps at other places. On the otber nana tuey ciaun mat Uman Herrick' land tranche upon them. The original railroad survey seems to have been at different width to provide for the slope of the bank. He did not seem to have any definite proposition to make and the impresion wa that the railroad has no intention of putting in any wall. Hooker froporied to give them a deed of hi land which they occupv, and mo vuj, u wjcj wm uuuu the wall. Col Fuller proposed to agree upon a man to treat with the eomnany, but it wa not acted upon. The railroad idea seems to ae to keep their land clean if the property owners will do the same. This is better than nothing, but the agitation ought not to be permitted to drop until we get a substantial wan ana a nice sward there. The railroad ought to do ometbfog towards it .and perhaps citizen ongbt to contribute also.Jlf the railroad won't do that, it is the duty of cit izen whose land they are oa to apply the law to them.

Mr Brook made a fortune and then came -back to his nat ve town and invested Sl&u.UiW in this hotel. It is a monument to his generotity which nil the traveling world can see and appreciate. Nor is Mr Brooks the only benefactor in Brat- tlehoro. Geo E Crowell. the 'modest man ana publisher of that excellent paper, the House hold, is bestowing nis good guts upon uis own town without stint. May he find many imita tors, not only in the clean and pure paper be nrints, but ia his public benefactions. St Johnsuury Caledonian Prof E M Bowman of St Louis gave a free organ recital at the Baptist church last evening, rMh m vnrv largely Attended and highly ap preciated. Prof Bowman is a native of Barn- nrd, and the only. American who has ever bad the honor of being admitted to the college of musicians in London. He is now president of the American organists' society, and an organ 1st of superior talent and culture as his perform ance last night demonstrated. Passing through this place he was induced by Col Fuller to give an organ recital for the entertainment of our people. After bia introduction to the audience bv Col Fuller. Prof Bowman made a few re marks, and said that the first organ he ever played was the father and mother or the pres Estev organ. It was in melodeon form and was first brought to his father's farm houce when he was a child. The next morning be crept down the stair and before his parents had arisen he had sicked out "Araby's daughter," and he wished to thank the Esteys' for his first musical inspiration. He then read the programme for the evening, whicn was a very enjoyaoie one, each selection being encored by the audience. The one thing which impressed the edito rial visitors last week wa the spirit of im provement and enterprise which tbey found pervading the very atmosphere of Brattleboro. Tbe Christian Messenger, the Methodist paper of the state says: "Brattleboro is a very for tunate town, in the prevalent public spirit of its citizens. Evidently they delight in the well deserved reputation which the town has ac quired, and local jealousies have no manifesta tion in the united and most generous display f r.s attractive features, and tbe unstinted credit which is accorded to each and all who have contributed to tbe prosperity of the town. Among those who have aided in this work, Mr Geo ' E Crowell, publisher of the Household, occupies a prominent place. The .growth of his circulation to some 80,000 subscribers ha given him the means, which he has used with most generous public spirit, to advance the growth of the town and to benefit its citizens in numerous way. His work is also weli ap preciated by tbe people of Brattleboro, and he ia honored by all." The Fairhaven Era ays : "Brattleboro iKars every evidence of having either one of the most active village improve ment societies to be found in the world, or people who take more than an average pride in their surrounding. With their nicely painted cottages, closely cut lawns, many of which are surrounded with hedge of hemlock, tbe intab itants of Brattleboro have the most attractiva looking homes to be found in New England.

SEVEN BURGLARIES. IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE VIL j .,. JAtiE L.A81' NIUtM.'. . . From SlflO to 00 In Caah Packed In Jewelry, Sllvor Ware and Watehe lln touched Closing Lunch In Uerrlek'a Cellar. ' The advance guard of tbe circus, probably made us a visit last night, and . burglarized 7 residences, making a haul of from f 130 to 4)200 In cash. Night before last tbey were at Keene. and went through half a dozen houses. They went to Springfield Mas a short time ago, and repeated their burglaries three nights in succes sion. They have" been board from at several points in western Massachusetts this week with from two to half a dozen robberies in each. Evidently they (are making this tour ahead of their circus as unexpected visitors. Theymust have rec. n miter id the town carefully, for they operated whore tbey would be most likely to escape the beat of the officers and where their plunder would be most likely to be plentiful. Two hard looking men weie notic ed on tbe streets yesterday and in tbe early part of the evening, stopping at Bliss' rcstau rant. Blacksmith Baily noticed them walking back and forth in front of Mrs Simond' on Elliot St. About half past 8 a man called at Wm Leonard's on the corner of Chase and Asy lum Sto and inquired for "Mr Cutlers." A call was also made at the upper end of the street on the same errand, but as no one called at Cutlers, it is supposed that this must have been a part of the recDnnoisance. Peleg Bar rows also noticed a man standing by his path as ne went home about 10 o'clock. Operations were evidently begun at F D Fisk's boase on North St. Mr Fink before he bad gone to sleen about 11 o'clock beard some noise about the house but paid no attention to it for some time thinking his servant had a vis. itor. But as tho noises continued in a sup pressed way and among them he noticed was the creaking of a door and as it was getting late he thought It would be well enough to get up and look round. He noticed then that tbe bock door was opon a few inches and then almost instantaneously he saw a man elide by tbe window and out or his yard He had a revolver all loaded in his room, and it would have been a fine chance to pepper the burglars if he bad half suspected anything wrong and had taken anything with him when be got np to look round. Col Richard Bradley's bouse off from the same street, N F Cabot's on Terrace, Wm Leonard' on the corner of Asylum and Chase, fllasa Willi' on Walnut, were tnen burglarized in tho course of the next two or three hours, but in what order no one can tell a the people at eacn place slept tnrougn it. At Mr Bradlev's they first wont in through tbe cellar but found the doors locked up stairs so they could make no progress. Then they cut throngh the screen of the kitchen but as the doors of every "room were locked thev found themselves no better off than iu the cel lar and had to give it up: Col Bradley says he cannot find as anything is missing. wnen Air Leonard got up io oress mis morn ing he found his pantaloons missing but they nimuy were round in tne nan. nm pocicet book'had been taken out and emptied and then laid conspicuously on the mantel piece in the sitting room. Mr Leonard thinks they found less than Si m the pocaet dook. notmngeise was missed. His watch bung in his vest at the head of his bed but was not disturbed. A lamp is always left burning in his sitting room, and a valuable pin beside it belonging to Mrs Leon ard was not touched though tho pocket book shows that thev did their main work in that room. The burglars evidently entered the side door of the house, which was unlocked, and they went out through the ban anc;tue front aoor which thev left unlocked behind them. At Masa WilliB's houso they turned the key in the tront door and came in tnrougn toe hall to the dining room. Thev went to a desk containing some valuable-paper belonging to his brother's estate and some pocket books. They looked these over but took nothing except Mrs Willis' portmonnaietontalntng about $10. Mr Willis had considerable monev and valuables in his bed room which opened fronrtjie dining room, but for the lost two nights he bad locked kis bed room door and the room was not n- tered. Tbey did not boar the burglars and knew nothing of their visit until morning.

About half-past one they made considerable noise by opening a door against a table, and Mrs Barrows saw a light flash pact the window and a man in his shirt sleeves or a light coat burrv by.

Seleclman 8 N Herrick's house on Main St, was the last place where they made a call. The family retired about halt-past nine, and Mrs Herrick .is sure she locked the window and front door, and Mrs Plummer who rooms up stairs, heard her. But tbe burglars evidently came tn tbrjtngh the front door. Mr Herrick placed his pantaloons on a chair not more than six feet from ttc head of hie bed;- when he re tired, and left tlsjraterr in his vest on the table. But one of theburglars who, as the tracks show, wore rubbers, abstracted them safely Herrick cannot tell exactly how much money he bad. but it waslsomewhire between fifty and one nunarea aouars anu we uurgiurs gut n. He found his watch andlbis pocket-book spread open in the cellar this morning. There were some ilOO in checks, besides notes and other valuable carters ia the pocket book which the robbers left for him. Mr Herrick narrowly scaned the loss of several hundred dollars which a man talked of paying him yesterday afternoon.but which Herrick.as an accommoda tion allowed to wait for a few days.

A somewhat singular .will in which tbe seam stresses of this town ore interested, seeraa to have been made about 20 years ago by Thomas Thompson of New York, once a visitor to this town. In 1865 he and his wile Elizabeth spent a few weeks at the water cure and other places here. Mrs Thompson had just bad one foot amputated for some reason and the couple were traveling for her health. Mrs Elizt Hastings, who is now living oh Frost street, but who at that time supported herself by her needle, be came acquainted with the couple through do ing some work for them and frequently called upon Mrs Thompson and read tuber. She says that Mr Thompson once observed to her that a seamstress' lite was a toilsome one, and said that he should leave his propsrty to the women of that vocation. She asked him if by tbat be meant to include all seamstresses and he said "no, only those who were obliged to sew for a living." She says they became very much attached to tke place and were much im pressed bv the kindness of the people here to them in their sickness. Mrs Hustings had let the matter drop from her mind nntil she read the probate notice in the Phoenix last week. This notice was dated at Boston and by it.it appeared that Mr Thompson who died in 18G9 leil tue DUIK oi uis large property io me ecaiu stresses of Brattleboro and Itbeinbeck, N Y, his native town, after the death of his wife who held the property during her life time. It also appeared that four child ren of an aunt of Mr Thompson, being the next of kin, purposed to contest the will, and the date Julv 29, 18S5, was ap pointed for a meeting at 209 Washington street, ftnston. of all those inteaested. SN Herrick Tuesday wrote to the register of probate at Boston for a copy of the will and he has re ceived reply that there is no sucn win more. As Mr Thompson was a New York man there may be a mistake in the printed notice, or if not tbe affair is probably a hoax, limns win b s made at once to obtain some light upon the subject. BELLOWS FALLS. INDUsTRI tL PROJECTS. The Manufacture of a New Can Also a Superior Look In vnntlon Still Another ' Kataullshad Business to Employ from 800 to 400 men. W M Farrow, of Springfield, Ma, well known in tbe rifie trade, and for year tbe traveling representative of tbe Belknap gun, has been In town tbi week showing our people the merits of his newly invented gun, for which rvrtfanrK make Very Low Prices now on all and believe so fully in it, that tbey induced bim to agree to locate here, if the necessary capital can be raised, though he has good opportuni ties to go to any one of several otber places. Every one of our riflemen says it is unquestion ably the best gun made, and it can be manufac tured cheaper than any of the others, so that it certainly seems as if tbe outlook is as good as it can be for any new thing. Tbe gun has only 27 or 28 parts, instead ot 60 or 70 in tbe other high-class rifija. It capacity for good shoot ing is shown by the extraordinary score which Mr Farrow made with it at Oak Grove range Saturday. i Rifle 'making is as hopeful a branch of in dustry as any other manufacture in the coun try. The demand in the public markets for rifle and ammunition has increased rapidly. Rifle clubs that years ago could have been numbered on one's fingers, are now springing np all over the country andean only be num bered by tbe hundreds, and each of these clubs has a membership from 50 to as high as 300, and all are looking and experimenting to find tbe best rlfla and ammunition tbat tbe country can produce Mr Farrow can bring into the business tbe valuable experience of nine years, which time has been spent, traveling over this and other countries, Introducing, shooting and selling rifles, so that there is hardly a dealer in tbe country that he has not sold rifles to and knows personally, and he is known by reputation. He proposes personally to take as many shares and put as much money into the enterprise as any otber subscriber. He says he will make the Farrow Fire Arm Co of Brattleboro, Vermont, an institution that will be known not only throughout this country but through every country where guns and ri fles cau be introdu ced. ... Messrs Geo E Crowell, C L Cobb and Arthur Knight, have been at Springfield, Mass, looking over his correspondence and prospjets, and they find order for several hundred guns already on band, and expressions of confi dence from skilled riflemen in ail parts of the country. Tbe idea is to organize a stock company with $30,000 capital. Mr Farrow will put in bis pat ent at $10,000 and subscribe $1000 himself. A mee'.iug was held at Geo E Crowell' office Monday evening to discuss and look over tbe matter and considerable progress was raai'.e toward the stock subscriptions. The papers are now in the hands of the local riflemen and after they have subscribed as much as they wish it is believed that our large capitalists will make np the rest. Last year Mr C C Dickerman, the inventor and proprietor of the Dickerman lock which is already a well and favorably well known ar ticle in the market, and which is already on tbe Reformer office door and many other business places in town, was here to make arrangements to locate his business. But he suflered a stroke of paralysis soon after, and has been sick ever since, and the matter has been neglected. His ill health prevents his pushing the business as he wishes, and he wants to get it into the hands of a well managed company. He is ready to put in several thousand dollars himself. Tbe lock is unquestionably the best thing made, it is in use at the White House and some of the Departments at Washington, and there is no question tbat the business if properly managed, can be made a good one. Mr Dickerman is attracted to Brattleboro by its natural beauty and social superiority, and if suitable accom modations can be found we ought to have him here. The manufacture could "be worked np to employ 150 hands. There is still another project of which we can't give full particular this week, because another town as well as this is trying to get it, and we don't want to give them any points. It is an established busiuess, which has outgrown the place where it is now located. One of the partners wants to come here and the other to the other place, and as tbe business men of tbe other place are a wide awake lot who don't lose chances we must bestir ourselves. The parties are to be invited to meet some of our representative and public spirited cit izens to see what can be done. They don't ask for any additional capital, though it is doubtless a question of inducements, between is and tne oiner puce, and we ougut to orange among ourselves in advance what we will offer. Mr Crowell offers to put np auuther building for them at once if necessary, or Vinton old rule factory iiiiubt be utilized, provided the Dickerman enterprise does not take it. It is a business which can give employment to several hundred hands, and a particulalrv favorable feature is that much of the wore is of a kind which women can Wke to their homes and do. The Farrow enterprise will need only a few hundred dollars worth of machinery besides I tbat of tbe Higby Sewing Machine Co, and about $800 worth of tools. If successful $20, 000 cash will be needed to swing it, hut the investment of not over $2500 for tools and machinery and $5000 to get out the first lot of good would be sufficient to test it.

Dr Henry K Vaille a well known physician of Springfield Mass, and who at one time had the largest practice of any doctor at that place died at that place Wednesday. He was attacked with cholera morbus Sunday night, and bis constitution, enfeebled with 76 years, yielded rapidly to the disease ; he became unconscious at ten o.clock Wednesday morning, and passed away about noon. He was a native of Marlboro and his real or original name was Ozni Un derwood son of Thaddeus Underwood. But when a young collegian and showing promise ef a successful career be courted a daughter of the famous Rev B H Pitman, then at Marl boro, and afterwnrd of Albany N Y, and it is said tbat on account of the bad standing of bi family and especial ly of hi brother in tbe community, she would not marry him unless he would change his name. At any rate he did this, and being full of vim and fire worked bis way to an edu cation. He went through tbe West Brattiebjro academy, graduated at William's college in 183a, attended the Pittstield medical college and also studied in Paris. He began practice in Longmeadow. but soon succeeded to a large practice in Springfield, left by bis old friend and instructor, Dr Joshua Frost. He had be fore been principal of the town high school, and be bad earned the money for bis education all along largely by teaching. His public offices were those of teacher, school committee and city physician, he having held the latter posi tion for a considerable period. At one time during tbe war Dr vaille wa in tbe service of tbe Christian commission ; in tbe fall of 1863 he spent tome time in tbe hospital at Middletown, Md, attending tbe wounded after the battle of South Mountain and Antie- tam. Ho retired from general medical practice a few year ago and since then had devoted himself to some specialties of practice. The doctor 1 described as. having oecn a splendid specimen or manhood, over ix feet tall, erect and lithe, with fine manner most engaging presence and a man of such strong convictions and fidelity to friend as to be a power for good,though he never took any part in politics or social organizations.
