Thoiupsou was called to tho stand Wednesday afternoon to testify us to tho peoplo crossing the railroad tracks ut the station iu Bel Iowa F'alls. Deputy (Sheriff tieorgo I'. Alexander testified as to tho shells that ho found iu the grip of tho re spondent at tho time of the shooting, lie was not able to identify them, however, when produced in court. On j cross examination ho said ho did remember telling Judgo (iibson that Fairbanks did uot have any moro ( realization of tho crimo ho had com mitted than his (tho o(lieer's) four -j vear old bov. Ho ulso remembered j saying that Fairbanks 's mind was at times a blank. The opening argument in tho trial was made yesterday by State's At torney K. C'" liacon. He claimed that Fairbanks was responsible for the crime within the eyes of the law and that ho knew right from wrong. Mr. Huron outlined the theory of the state which inaiutained that the re spondent assumed an illicit relation with the dead girl several years ago and that he continued in this up to tho time of t)ie shooting. When he became nwure that another, Thomas I'enniman, was sharing in her affec tions he made plans to take her to Ashuelot, X. H. On meeting Myra Tattle at Bellows Falls on tho fore noon of the day of the murder and learning from her that Mrs. Grout had been in Grafton to hiro a tene ment he went immediately to find out if it was true from Mrs. Grout.

De Witt was elected auditor in place of the late Adin H. l'ettce and a commit tee of threo was appointed by the chair to frame suitable resolutions shot her. Premeditation began, the attorney claimed, when Myra Tuttlo told Fairbanks of Mrs. Grout's change of plans. Mr. Bacon then reviewed the evidence and em phasized the point that strengthened the theory that Mary Grout did not do the' shooting. This last point was supported principally by the course of the bullets in Fairbanks 's body and the shot that pierced tho dead girl's heart. A. P. Carpenter made the opening argument for the defense. He main tained that Mary Grout shot Fair banks and then killed herself. From the testimony as to the position of Mrs. Grout with reference to the ac- ....., nr. l,.ii.n 'o flnnth After the.

OVER WINDHAM COUNTY. Stevens Balloon Seen in at Least Six Towns. At least six towns in Windham county were favored with a vy?w of the "balloon containing Charles J. Glidden of Lowell, Mass., and Leo Stevens of New York, which ascend ed from Pittsfield, Mass., at 10.45 Tuesday morning and landed in North Springfield, Vt., at 2.18 in the after noon after covering a distance of about 140 miles. Wafted northward by a gentle breeze the aeronauts cn-i-niiiitered a severe storm soon after crossing tho Vermont line at Iteads boro and were obliged to ascend to an altitude of more than 80OO feet where the drop in temperature was so great that it surprised even Mr. Stevens who was on his 1100th trip in the air. At Kcadsboro tho balloon struck a current blowing moro toward the east and passed over Wilming ton so near tho ground that the in habitants of that village had an ex cellent view of tho gas bag. Sailing over a corner of Dover tho balloon eontinued over Newfane, floating along for some distance directly above tho Main street of that town and then swinging across Brookline and into Westminster. The balloon as cended to a high elevation at this point and tho balloonists were obliged to drop close to the ground in Kock ingham to ascertain their bearings. Here they swung across the river into New Hampshire and later a shift of the wind wafted them back over Ver mont soil. They decided to effect a landing in North Springfield and ac complished the foat with absolutely 110 difficulty, coming down in an open field as lightly as a feather. After packing the balloon for shipment Mr. Glidden and Mr. Stev ens both left by train, the former go ing to Boston and the latter to North Adams, Mass., where ho intended to make still another fly today. At sev eral points in this county the balloon came so near the earth that people were able to see the balloonists and noticed that they waved a flag as a salute. At Newfane, according to a correspondent of that town, the vil lagers noted a flash as if tho occu pants of the basket fired a revolver. This is extremely unlikely, however, as nothing that would be likely to cause a spark of any kind, even a match, is carried by balloonists. Annual Convocation of O. E. S. Dis trict. Tho 12th annual convocation of the second district, O. E. S., was held in Masonic hall last Friday. Bingham chapter opened and closed the meet ing and exemplified the business meeting. Deputy Grand Patron F. R. Vaughan gave an address of wel come, and Grand Patron Dr. G. H. Gorham responded. The reception of grand officers was a pleasant feat ure. Alpha chapter of Bellows Falls presented the Vocal Star. In the evening the degrees were conferred by Kamona chapter of Springfield. Tho banquet was served at 5.30, cov ers being laid for about 175. Attend ance in the evening was fully 200. Besides Grand Patron Dr. Gorham, Grand Matron Mrs. Bigwood and Grand Lecturer Mrs. Hawley, there were many past grand officers pres ent who also responded with wit and wisdom when called upon. Mrs. Haw ley in her review of the work com mended the chapters which had par ticipated. Other chapters included in the district are Golden Kule, Put ney; Keystone, Ludlow; Mizpah, Chester; Pearl, Jacksonville; West Eiver, Townshend. Ascutney chap ter of Windham was also represented by the patron, Edson N. Pierce, and by Mrs. Pierce. Much credit for the success of the meeting is due to Dep uty Grand Patron Ferris K. Vaughan, Deputy Grand Matron Mrs. Etta M. Howard and the Brattleboro chapter, Mrs. Martha Swift matron. on the top stair of the front steps at least two feet above the respondent, coujded with the fact that the bullets in Fairbanks 's chest took a down ward course it was clear, he said, that she must have done the shooting. This theory was still further appar ent, Mr. Carpenter claimed, when the straight course that the bullet took in piercing her own chest was taken into consideration. Tho position of tho revolver which lay at her feet and the fact that the clothing about tho wound was on fire still further give evidence of her guilt. The state, he said, had not connected Fairbanks with the revolver. Only one witness said anything about the pistol. Mr. Carpenter further claimed that the stage's theory that Fairbanks must have bought a new one since May 9 was discredited as the revolver was an old one and rusted with ago. Taking into consideration the condi tion of Fairbanks nud his illness the statements made by tho respondent should not be tnken into considera tion. Mrs. Tuttle, he said, was of poor reputation as testified to by her own relation and the premeditation theory based on her evidence should not be given any weight. Judge E. W. Gibson closed the ar guments for the defense. He said that the testimony of the nurses did not agree with the records made; that the facts recorded there showed that Fairbanks sat on the bedside, swung his hands, sang out, did vari ous peculiar things, should appear be fore the jury. No attempt was made bv tho state to show that rairiianKS procured the revolver, he said. Evi dence showed conclusively, he said, that Fairbanks was predisposed to insanity and that a marked change had como over him during the past few years. Attorney General Fitts began sum ming up the case for the state at the opening of court this morning. He said that it was tho burden of the state to show that the murder had been dono with malico aforethought and to prove this to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt. Ho then took up the question of Fairbanks's crim inal responsibility, saying that it would have to be judged by his life within 10 years previous to tho mur der. The defense, Mr. Fitts claim ed, had a scattering theory and none of its grounds was valid. He laid particular stress on the insanity theo ry, pointing to the fact that none of the doctors placed on the stand by the defense had been asked tho ques tion whether they considered the re spondent sane or insane. On the other hand, he said, Fairbanks had confessed no less than nine times. As to the illicit relations between Fairbanks and Mrs. Grout the attor ney general placed all the blame for them upon the man 's shoulders, say ing that it was entirely unreasonable to suppose that a woman of Mrs. Grout's years could have influenced a man as old as Fairbanks to such an extent as was claimed by the defense. Taking up the circumstances just previous to the shooting Mr. Fitts pointed out to the jury the unsound ness of tho theory that Mrs. Grout had done the shooting, and on the question of premeditation maintained as did State's Attorney Bacon that it began when Fairbanks had talked with Mrs. Tuttle. HIGH WATER WORKS HAVOC. (Continued from First Page.) washed away by tho force of the current which is sweeping down bo- tween the west end of the coffer and the Vermont shore. Of the six acres which formerly composed tho island little less than a half acre remained yesterday afternoon and this was rap idly disappearing. At (J.30 yesterday morning the barn at the lower end of the island fell with a crash and disappeared into the stream. A flock of sheep which had been pastured on tho island were rescued Monday by boat but the current was so swift that it was necessary to take them to tho New Hampshire shore. In ad dition to eating up the islaud the river has swallowed about six acres of land on the Vermont shore just below the dam site. This land was owned by T. K. Stock well and Fred Stone. So much land bad been washed away yesterday afternoon that some of tho buildings be longing to the contractors were in danger and preparations had been made to move them in case the river should eat its way any further in land. A boat houso belonging to Hayes Bigelow was washed from its moorings at the mouth of West river early yesterday morning and passed tho dam site about 1 o'ciock. 11 went through the sluice without dam age and when last seen was heading southward at a rapid rate. A telephono message from tho dam headquarters at noon today says that the water has dropped two feet since yesterday noon and is now receding rapidly, the decrease this morning be ing more than six inches.

Washouts at Different Points Made Traffic Impossible Yesterday. The West Kiver branch of tho Ccn tral Vermont railroad was practically out of commission yesterday, wash outs havinir ocmirred in so many dif ferent places that it was impossible to run any trains. The regular mixed train started out yesterday morning at 7.45 when it was held up about a mile this side of Williamsville station bv a slide that had carried out several rods of track. The slide occurred at the point which was dam aged a few weeks ago, the rip rap which had been used to fill the road bed sliding down into the highway and blocking that as well as the rail road. By laying the tracks closer to the embankment the train was able to continue as far as Newfane and from that point mail was brought to Brattleboro yesterday atternoon. The regular passenger train due here at 10 o'clock was held up near Wardsboro station by tho washing out of a trestlo which was not re nlaced until last nieht. I here was also another break in the line just below Townshend station, the under pinning of tho small trestlo near Wil lard's mill being washed out. A repair train was sent up from Brattleboro yesterday morning to fill the washout this side of Williams ville, and after returning for a train load of cinders it, went further north and ballasted the track in several places where tho water had done minor damage. The regular passen ger train started as usual from South Londonderry this morning. CHURCH NOTICES. Center Congregational church, Dev. II R. Miles, pastor.
