conceived, fmaneed and built, by l.rattle
boro men. The biiildinK "f the colton null
made feasible and neeesHary the reloeiition
of the southern end of South Xbnn street,
which is nearly completed. This will cost
several thousand dollars and is a develop
ment to be included in the buil'lintf record
for the vear. Tlunit-'h there is no way nt
gettinK n'n ncciiriite estimate of the amount
of repair ami alteration work done on
house, stores and industrial plant tin
item will run hitch into the thousand ol
dollars. ...
While the record of 1!U will probably
not be ftiualled for a number of years 'I he
Kcformcr is assured that another industry
of equal iiniKirtanee to the Kurt Dummcr
Mills is likely to be found in the record of
the coming year. There are also reasons
to believe that the dream of Hi att hiborn
people for electric connection with the out
side world will come true and tlmt inside
of five years it will be possible to reach
Brattleboro from the south throimh North
field, Mass., and South X'eiTion by trolley.
This opinion is based upon statements ot
men back of several enterprises in which
the welfare of lirattleboro is vitally con
cerned. , , , 1
The bit? mill. t,le nucleus of the textile
industry which Brattlchnro not only hopes
but firmly expects to see established, has
been completed. -Probably ""i per cent of
the people ef the town have seen the
structure and descriptions of the biiihlitiif
that have appealed from lime to lime in J he
Reformer have kept the lirattleboro people
informed of the progress of the woii,
which started late last May. I he building
is 321 feet in length. 1120 feet wide, and
three stories in height. Its capacity is
35,000 spindles and (US looms. The heat
ing plant is housed in a separate building
as are also the electric transformers. The
company has so planned the structure as to
permit the building of another mill of the
directly north of the present
building, and the chances arc that this en
largement will come in tne near iiiunc.
provided for "1 families i.t the extreme
southern end -of the village.

Though opened up for building less than
two vcars ago the section south and west
of the Memorial hospital shows evidences
of the boom which has struck Brattleboro.
The broad field on the 11. (i. Carl; farm
lying between Mr. Clark's buildings on
Pair View street and the hospital was
plotted into house lots and sold over
a vear ago. A street was cut through the
property to Maple street and named Bel
mont nven lie. Development has begun on
this avenue where II. P. Emerson has five
thoroughly modern houses of seven and
eight rooms tinder construction. They will
be ready for occupancy within two months.
On South Main street Charles Xason has
built a two-tenement- house and Hubert
Slehhins a cottage structure. Carl Kkbcrg
and Carl ("iustavson have built commodi
ous homes on Fail-view street and K. B.
Barrows has four cottage houses completed

Insurance payable in one sum is indeed a great thing. But to make
it payable in monthly instalments, fixed, certain, definite, in such a way
that the housewife may know just how she stands just how much she can
relv on it doesn't have to be a large amount-and make her arrangements
accordingly, that is the ideal way in which to finance the insurance problem.
And the Life Income, which a man thus arranges for his family, is
paid promptly on the first day of every month like a pension or a salary.
There is no attorney or banker to consult, no agent to employ, not a penny
of expense is required to collect the amount. It will be sent by mail from
the Home office of the New York Life Insurance Company once a month.
All a man's wife or family has to do is to receive it from the postman,
when he brings it to the door. This income cannot be lost or depreciated;
it is as safe and sure as a pension from the government. Should every
other investment, which the family might have, fail, this monthly income
would be the one resource, always certain and secure.
The great New York Life Insurance Company with 650 million dollars
assets guarantees this.
