"A Midsummer's Xight Dream," by Mr.

tention. His utter abandonment of self
in portraying so naturally the characters of
the play was the key to his justly earned
success. His support, the Sextet club,

Brattleboro has never received a greater
shock of surprise than yesterday afternoon,
when rumors began to be circulated that
Leslie Scott, teller at the Vermont national
bank, was under arrest for forgery in
Nashua, X. II.
The first Intimation of the trouble came
to Mr. Scott's brother, Freeman eott,
from a Xashna attorney. A few minutes
later a telegram brought the news to The
Only the most meagre information was
known on the streets, but even that caused
an unusual sensation. People congregated
in little groups and speculated on what
they had heard, and advanced their
theories. To many it seemed impossible
that Scott had committed the crime
The Pluenlx at once began using the
wires between Brattleboro and Xashua,
and in the eenlng received by a special
despatch the following, which appeared in
the Xashua Evening Telegraph :

also a Clerk of the Church.
The biggest capture that the Nashua
police have had for years was accomplished
this afternoon. A cool looking young man
was leaving this city for the north at Con
cord Junction when Deputy Marshal W.
W. Wheeler caught him, and thereby
hangs a tale of a fall that will startle Ver
mont. A young man :i years old struck
Nashua this morning and tried to cash a
check for fl04.",.04 at the Nashua Trust
Company's. He asked to have f V,00 of it
put on deposit and to receive the balance in
cash. Treasurer Bobbin did not "see it,"
although the check was a finely made out
one, and apparently all right.
It was signed by J. E. McFarlane. presi
dent of the bank on which the check was
made out, and was properly endorsed.
The young man also tried to cash a
large check in a similar mannei at the Se
curity Trust company's , but met with
the same reception there. At the Second
national bank he met with such success
that he will probably land in state prison.
There he presented a check for f :J71!'.0."j

Dubuque, Iowa, on the Xew York national
bank, payable to Frank Harrison and
properly endorsed. lie asked the same as
at the other banks to have 700 cash and
the rest on deposit. He was paiil the .f700
and a deposit book was made out and
Soon after he departed the trashier tele
phoned the particulars to the city marshal
and said he feared all was not right.
Deputy Marslul Wheeler and Cashier
Eaton went to the Concord Junction, and
other bank officials and policemen to rail
road square and to the depot.
It was a wise move, and on it rests the
capture. As the conductor of the out
going train for the north called "all aboard"
a little well dresed man dodged out from
behind a comer, and ran rapidly to the le
eeding car. That was the man.
Officer Wheeler caught him, and soon
he was landed in the police station. Here
he gave the name of Frank Harrison.
On his person were found checks for
fl94.j.l7. fUI7l'.:l-', f 1305.0.-1, i2f07.44, all
elegantly made out. He had three rail
road mileages on his person, and papers of
a creamery association which showed him
to be from Brattleboro, Vt.
He gave the name of Frank Harrison,
He had on a new suit of clothes and a new
overcoat. When his clothing was exam
ined it was found that they weie all made
by one firm in Brattleboro, Vt.
"You came from Brattleboro," said the

he had been in the bank nine years, and

In addition to the above, the Telegraph !
printed an Interview with D. , Harriett, ,
now general 'oeu-tan of the ashrn Y.
M. C. A., but formerly a well-known
Brattleboro man. In this Interview Mr.
Bartlctt spoke of the high standing of Mr.
Scott and of the confidence which he had
always enjoyed In Brattleboro, saying
substantially what any Brattleboro busi
ness man would have done had he been
asked for an opinion concerning Scott.
It is understood that the statement which
Scott made at the office of the trust com
pany was that he wished to buy a barber
9hop. He presented a check for J1000,
saying that he wanted $300 In cash and
would leave the rest on deposit.
Scott left Brattleboro on the 5:31 train
Friday morning. He said he was going to
Springfield, Mass., explained his proposed
business there, and urged his wife to make
the trip with him. He left the train at'
Greenfield and went to Nashua via the
To none outside his family has the
blow come with such force as Mr. Scott's
associates in the bank. When the first
despatches came they declared that there
must be a mistake, and even wlien the
full statements were received at The
Plnvnlx office they were hardly convinced.
Mr. Scott's term of service in the Ver
mont national bulk began nine years ago.
Aftet serving a comparatively short time
as bookkeeper he was promoted to the tell
ershlp. at the time Mr. Dowley was ad
vanced from cashier to president, and Mr.
Averlll became cashier.
In all his relations with the bank Mr.
Scott has always been a model official,
working diligently, and never showing a
trait that had the semblance of dishonesty.
He has been generally regarded as a
young man of ability, and outside the bank
has served In positions of responsibility.
He was for a term of years cleik of the
Universalist society. At the present time
he is the treasurer of the Creamery asso
ciation, while he has been treasurer of the
Vermont Wheel club from the date of Its
organization over eight years ago.
While everyone has been struck with
a feeling of surprise on hearing of the pro
ceedings a". Nashua, there comes a still
greater feeling of sorrow, not only for the
young man, but for those cloely connected
with him his elderly father and mother,
than whom no people in Brattleboro have
ever been more highly esteemed; his
brother and sister, and his wife and her
family, all of whom stand on the same foot
ing as his family.
Mr. Scott's friends say that the story in
the Telegraph in regard to his investments
in the Xew Hampshire Trust company
cannot be correct, and that his holdings of
the company's stock did not exceed $.100.
They are not aware that Scott had engaged
in speculation, but it is not improbable
that the fact will be developed that specu
lation was the caii'-e of the young man's
downfall. He is known to have held
property on which he could quickly realize
from fiOOO to ji'.IOO.
Had Mr. Scott wished to ue money be
longing to the Creamery association or the
Wheel club he could have done so, but the
balances at the bank are all right.
Scott's habits have always been exem
plary, and he has lived modestly, and well
within his means. Those who know him
tuot intimately say " He must have been
insane." It is evident, however, that the
crime was premeditated, as the several
cheeks must have been prepared before
Scott left Brattleboro. It would seem that
the object must have been to raise money
and then leave lor parts unknown: or that
Scott thought that lie could realize a cer
tain amount and then return to Brattle
boro. covering his movement' so that Iih
crime could not be traced. The fact, that
he was leaving Xahua for the north would
indi:ate that he did lmt intend to return to
The books of the Vermont national bank
were carefully examined by the president
and cashier last evening, and they are
satisfied that his accounts are correct.
The checks which he ued were samples
from the Buffalo company which 1ml been
sent to the bank, and had laid in his desk
for a long time. For some reason the
company had neglected the usual pre
caution of marking them " sample."
Dr. Janie Conland, Mr. Scott's bro
ther, his wife and her father left for Xash
ua by the early train this morning. Bail
will undoubtedly be fumihed at the hear
ing. The case will come before the grand
jury In May.

;opt. Morris C. Foote of the Oth United
States Infantry, who was detailed to the
last encampment of the Vermont brigade,
at Rutland, has made an extended report.
M.tj. Foote submit several recommenda
tions. He thinks that the companies of
the infantry regiment should be supplied
wilh haversacks similar to those In ue In
the regular service, that they be provided
with Held cartridge belts and shelter tents
and that a subsistence department be or
ganized. The encampment should be held
the longest period allowed by law, eight
ilajs. Major Foote approves of the plan
of having a permanent camp ground at
Fort Ethan Allen. Some system of exam
ination might be established for officers on
being commissioned and promoted; this
would tend to give a class of officers who
would be zealous and ambitious, and keep
them Up in a knowledge of drill regulations
ami generaldutles. As the National Guard
Is liable to be called upon in case of riots,
Maj. Foote lecommends that a Ilotchkiss
or Gatllng gun be attached to the Infantry
regiment. In closing lie says:
" There is no fear lmt that the Vermont
National Guard will maintain the excellent
standard it has held in the past, and con
tinue to improve in the future, so long as

A friend enquire. Why do j.u tart n cash tore
My reasons: it oots h0 to deliver the good soht
iu this Milage, and S-J00O has to be added for poor
bills for thoi-edoini; a credit bn5iness, and the con
timers have to pay this $10,000. You not only pay
for the Roods you consume, but you have to pay for
those that cannot or do uot pay. The blind cau see
the reasonableness of this conclusion. They can
also see how a man can sell you better Roods for
much W money u hile dealing on the cash principle.
