Lamoille County Court
The trial of State v. Joseph Demanche
of Morrisville was commenced Wednes
day afternoon and the following jury
was empanelled: Tracy Badger, Don
Chapman. H. L. Fairbanks, Geo. L.
Gile, W H Harris, E. R. Lilley, F. B.
Noble, Chas Parker. J. C. Peck. E. W.
Potter, Page Uflord and L. A. Wolcott.
The panel in State v. Wells being still
out the regular panel was soon exhaust
ed, and Sheriff Town and his deputies
were busy for some time calling tales
men. Mate s Attorney Maurice, assisted
by W. E. Tracy, prosecuted, and the re
spondent was defended by F. G. Fleet
wood and R W. Hulburd.
The evidence of the State tended to
show that Demanche and Mrs. Grace
Grimes of Johnson attended the Barton
Fair alone last summer, and stayed at a
small hotel where they were seen by sev
eral parties; after that time Demanche
continued to visit Mrs. Grimes at John
son, and until recently was at her house
many times.
The case went to the jury at noon
Thursday, the respondent making no do
fense but relying on the witnesses im
proved by the state, among whom were
several whose testimony showed the ad
reputation of Mrs. Grimes. The jury
came in shortly, after court came in
Thursday afternoon and reported a ver
dict of "guilty."
At two o'clock Thursday afternoon
Orange Wells was brought into court
and sentenced for rape. His sentence
was not less than seven or more than
eight years in the State Prison at Wind
sor. The criminal
docket waa then called
and the following disposition made of
the remaining state cases: State v. Will
Horner, State v. Barney McManus, State
v. W. T. Burt, State v. Will Rich, and
State v. May Burnor were all continued
for variods reasons.
The following entries were directed:
Joseph Dorr v. Mark Stevens, with the
court; G. E. Smith y. Mark Stevens, con
tinued; C. E. Bragg v, F.;H. McFarland,
settled and discontinued; R. II. Powers
v. E. D. Gussman, referred to F. G. Fleet
wood, and continued; Edward White v.
St. Johnsbury & Lake Chaplain R. R.
Co., referred to Alexander Dunnett and
continued.
The civil jury calender was called
and two cases were still standing for
trial. Brown v. May, and Burt Lumber
Co., v. Shaw and Horner.
The first case was ready and a jury
empannelled. The case is a suit by Geo.
W. Brown of Morrisville against J. H.
May of Burlington to recover a claimed
amount due for a commission on the sale
of a livery barn in Winootki to C. II.
Prentiss. The defense claimed that the
arrangement was that if Brown would
sell the barn for $3000 that a commis
sion of $100 would be paid, but that
Brown instead of selling this barn to
Prentiss sold him the livery in the Bedell
stable at Morrisville and received his pay
for same. When May learned that Brown
waa selling other property than his to
Prentisa and not acting under the ar
rangement he notified Brown that the
property waa taken out of hishanda and
that nothing further would be done with
him. Brown wanta hia money juat the
aame. M. S. Vilas of Burlington and R.'
W. Hulburd appeared for Brown, and V.
A. Bullard and M. P. Maurice for May.
The jury waa aa follows: F. I. Allen, C.
S. Brenan, A. M. Carpenter, E. M. Da via,
H. O. Fisher, O. L. Gale, H. S. Gates, E.
M. Houston, II. G. Hutchins, E. R. Lilley
and H. E. Pike. This case occupied the
attention of court until Monday after
noon when it went to the jury.

BETTY AT THE FAIR
Letters of the Panama-Pacific Expo
sition by Florence Livingston
LETTER VI
.8an Fbakcisco, June 2, 1015.
(Concluded from last week.)
A zino mine next absorbed nay atten
tion, The original is in Missouri, but a
facsimilie has been arranged here with a
part ef the earth removed to show the
interior workings. The zino was found
15 feet below the surface and has contin
ued down 200 feet or more in an enor
mou8 deposit. In the excavating, big
pillars of the zino have been left as sup.
ports, worth about a million dollars.
Tbese win eventually De Diasted away
when the mine has been worked out, al
lowing the earth to cave in.
I learned a new kind of jack, father.
It has to do with zino. One kind is
known as ruby jack, occurring in red
crystals, which look like rubies. There
are also black jack and rosin jack.
have likewise become acquainted with
zino silicate, which is very curious in
deed and more nearly resembles tripe
than anything else that I can think of.
If serious statistics appeal to you, I am
now prepared to say that Missouri fur
nishes a large proportion of the zinc in
this countrv some years more than half.
The next time you go by Tiffany's, fa
ther, you may feel that I ban do the same
thing here in California only that we
shall be seeing vastly different things.
Here it is chiefly uncut jewels, but they
are so beautiful and interesting in their
natural condition that one lingers in com
plete absorption over the glass cases.
With feminine frivolity I could hardly
tear myself away from a piece of opal
about twelve inches long and five or six
Inches thick. Imagine how many orna
ments, gleaming with elusive lights,
that might be evolved from this one
piece ! Al most as fascinating was a b uge
slab of amethyst crystals from South
America, and then there were wonderful
specimens of sapphire from Ceylon, am
ber from Roumania, silver and volcanio
glass from Mexico, geodes of various
sorts, striking lenses of the eyes of the
giant cuttlefish, and agate-like sections
of a mastodon's tooth.
The varied Industries contains many
beautiful and costly things: fabrics and
furs; tapestries and rugs; china and
wearing apparel; jewelry in artistic set
tings. We began tiptoeing past connect
ing rooms filled with chiua so fraeile
that one instantly felt the responsibility
of moving softly. A smiling attendant
lowered the inevitable plush rope, and I
accepted the invitation, but I grasped
Joe firmly by the hand, that the damage
might be as light as possible. They need
not have printed any of those "Do Not
Touch" signs for me; I feel no tempU
tion to tab chances with a platter worth
$30. They may sit on their respective
tables for all of me.
This does not mean, however, that I
do not appreciate them. If I owned a
home and a fat check book, I should be
elad to empty the latter to fill up the
former, and this would be a good place
to begin. I don't know how to describe
the varied beauties we saw here, but I
lingered most loapingly over gold orna
mented goblets with pink enamel, over
plates with soft underglaze effect, over
acid-etched vases covered with color in
stead of gold.
A paper pattern manufacturer has In
stalled an attractive display of miniature
uies, wearing smart dainty gowns that
represent the latest notions in dress.
Costumes are shown for every possible
oocasion, and I never pass these long
glass eases without finding them sur
rounded by spectators. I can under
stand why the overplump ladies should
be drawn irresistibly to the slender, girl
ish models, and it is only natural that all
women should be interested, but it don't
stop there. Sometimes I think it don't
begin there: in other words, there are
usually more men than women, standing
spellbound before these tiny figures that
might have stepped out of a fairy exist
ence. It was on the Chinese day that I
saw two shabby Chinamen standing here.
They gazed a long time, and then simul
taneously they turned toward each other
and began chattering excitedly. I wish
I might have known what they said.
You would like to see the monster
typewriter that I came across the other
day. It is so big and funny that it makes
you laugh as inevitably as looking in a
big magnifying mirror. It is almost
2.000 times as large as the ordinary type
writer, standing 15 feet high, and being
21 feet wide. It runs by electricity and
weighs 14 tons. The paper required is
nine feet wide and the key cups are seven
inches in diameter. It is very diverting
to watch this ponderous contrivance
writing letters that can be read half a
block away.
I mustn't forget to tell you that the
French exhibits have been recently un
loaded from the Jason, which has bad a
long, perilous trip and has finally reached
here with invaluable treasures for the
Exposition. I saw some of the exhibits
being conducted with great ceremony.
Guards marched in front, followed by a
band playing martial airs; then came Ex
position and French Commissioners on
foot; and bringing up the rear were
trucks loaded with packing cases, draped
with Preach and American flags. It was
one of tbe most impressive things imagin
able I In a solema way America waa
saying to France: "You are in trouble,
but don't worry about the part of your
self that you have sent to me. It shall
have my protection."
When we got back to the hotel this
afternoon we found Mrs. Winwood there.
Mrs. Drake and Alice were entertaining
her; but when Jon and I entered tbe
room there was a hush, and I knew that
my protege had been under discission.
Tbe Drakes still feel that I have been
very much misled in keeping him, and
the poor little fellow is opologetio in
their presence. But Mrs. Winwood is
different. She has tbe mother instinct,
and Joe was at home with her at once.
In no time at all he was standing in the
circle of her arm, telling ber excitedly
about all the small interests in his mind.
"You seem to have adopted him", she
said to me with a twlukle in ber eye.
"No, ma'am, I 'dopted hei", explained
Joe proudly.
"Oh,did you, indeed?" responded Mis.
Wingood with charming gravity. "Then
perhaps you'll bring her to see me."
"Sure I will", agreed Joe with more
energy than elegance. "'Bout next
Thursday."
It was really arranged, thanks to Joe's
impetuosity. My infatuation is as com
plete as bis, but I might have managed
more outward restraint. Inside, how
ever, I am trying to curb my impatietice
to have her talk with Mrs. Winwood in
her own borne. That is the only setting
that gives you a key to a person's char
acter. V
Here's my love to you, a great deal of
it.
Affectionately,
Betty.
BITS OF WISDOM.
Therefore well does Agathon
say, "Of this alone Is even God
deprived, the power of making
that which is past never to have
been." Aristotle.
There is, however, a limit at
which forbearance ceases to be
a virtue. Burke.
This nation, under God. shall
have a new birth of freedom,
and' that government of the peo
ple, by the people, for the peo
ple shall not perish from tbe
earth. Abraham Lincoln.
In the lexicon of youth, which
fate reserves for a bright man
hood, there is no such word as
fail. Bulwer Lytton.
Beeswax for Cri.ci-3.
Cracks in furniture should be fltU.ii
in with beeswax. Soften the bseswcx
until It becomes like p'tty, then
press it firmly Into the crack3 and
smooth the surface over with a thlu
knife. Sandpaper the surroundlr-g
wood, and work some of the dust Into
the beeswax. This gives a finish to
the wood, and when It is varnished
the cracks will have disappeared.
Putty used in the same way soon
dries and falls out.
The Story of Esau Wood
Esau Wood sawed wood.
Esau Wood would saw wood.
All the wood Esau Wood saw Esau
Wood would saw. In other words, all
the wood Esau saw to saw Esau sought
to saw.
Ob, the wood Wood would saw I Wood
would saw wood.
But one day Wood's wood-saw would
saw no wood, and thus the wood Wood
sawed was not the wood Wood would
saw if Wood's wood-saw would saw wood.
Now, Wood would aaw wood with a
wood-saw that would saw wood, so Esau
sought a saw that would saw wood.
One day Esau saw a saw aaw wood as no
other wood-saw Wood saw would saw
wood.
.In fact, of all the wood-saws Wood
ever saw saw wood Wood never saw a
wood-saw that 'would saw wood as the
wood-saw Wood s.iw saw wood would
saw wood, and I never saw a wood-saw
that would saw as tbe wood-saw Wood
saw would saw until I saw Esau Wood
saw with the wood-saw Wood saw saw
wood.
Now Wood saws wood with the wood
saw Wood raw saw wood.
Oh, the wood the wood-saw wood saw
would saw I
Oh, the wood Wood's woodshed would
shed when Wood would saw wood with
the wood-saw Wood saw saw wood 1
Finally, no man may ever know bow
much wood the wood-saw Wood saw
would saw, if the wood-saw Wood saw
would saw all the wood the wood-saw
Wood saw would saw.
