Beginning with next Sunday Brattle boro is to have a Sunday mail to Now York, Boston and other points. For sev eral years It has been one of tho hoped-for privileges of this office, and after no llttlo planning of details tho department has finally ordered a Sunday night collection by tho carriers and has established a serv ice by which arrangement letters for Now York, Boston, and other Important cities can be received and answered tho same day. Tho collections, to start with, will only include tho mall from tho Main street boxes, beginning at tho Vinton corner and going as far north as tho box on tho cor ner of Main and Walnut streets, with col lections from tho hotels. Tho first collec tion will bo mado next Sunday about 5:15 P. r., and the pouches will be closed at the office at 5:45, containing all mall de posited In tho boxes In the post-office be fore that time. These pouches will bo sent out on the owl train Monday morn ing and will arrive In Now York at 11:2", In time for the early afternoon deliveries, whllo mall for Boston, Springfield, Con ncctlcut and more distant points will have similar facilities. These deliveries will then be advanced soveral hours, a fact that will be greatly appreciated by the patrons of the Brattleboro office. Heretofore there has been no mall des patched after 8 v. m. Saturday night till Monday morning. This Monday morning mall did not reach New York till after the separation to carriers for the last after noon delivery from tho general post-office, though there is a delivery from the branch offices as lato as 0 p. m. However, by the new arrangement tho mall will hereafter reach the general ofllce at 12:23 p. m., In ample time for the 2:15 delivery, and pos sibly it can go out by tho 1:15 delivery. Should Brattleboro bo so fortunate as to get a Sunday train this summer the new mall service will be so much the better convcnieiiced. The need of this lncrcacd service has long been recognized by Postmaster Chllds and ho has tried to bring it about, but the situation was complicated by tlie fact that there Is no mall service by the Sunday night trains and the post-office de partment was loath to make a radical new departure by asking the railroads to lake charge of the pouches and carry them in the baggage cars, as will be necessary. The final accomplishment of the plan will meet with universal common lation. TRANSFER OF PATIENTS.

Italestler Ilelil In the Slim of S ! to Keep the Peace, mill 9 IOO Additional to Appear nt the Count)' Court. This has been fame's llttlo week for Brattleboro, all because of a family row that was aired In court,and one of tho per sons Involved happened to be Rudyard Kipling, tho eminent novelist. Thither have come newspaper writers who concoct ed descriptions that did not describe, and who drew illustrations that did not illus trate. The writers and tlie "artists" were here to get a sensation, and the material was worked for all It was worth. The first that tho public knew that there was a family jar was late Saturday after noon, when Realty Balestler was arraigned before Justice Wm. S. Newton. He had been arrested by Deputy Sheriff Starkey on a complaint sworn out by States Attor ney C. C. Fltts. The complaint charged Balestler with breaking the peace on May 0 In Brattleboro by making an assault up on Rudyard Kipling "with force and arms." it was alleged that he called Kipling op probrious and Indecent names, and that with force and arins he did threaten Kip ling that he would kill him. States Attorney C. C. Fitts appeared for the prosecution, assisted by liaskins & Stoddard, and G. B. Hltt was counsel for Balestler. Mr. Kipling's counsel moved that the hearing be continued until Tues day. This request was granted. There was considerable discussion as to Bales tier's bail, the question of bonds for keep Ing peace until Tuesday and for appear ance at that time arising. He was dually released on his own recognizance, after nr. Kipling had ollered to go ball rather than have Balestler sent to the lockup, and uaiesucr nan spurned this aid. The story of the hearlnc and of the as sault appeared lu the city newspapers of Sunday. There were still longer accounts in Monday's papers, showing the relations oi Kipling with ueatty ualestier's brother, tho late Walcott Balestler, the two having written "The Naulahka" together; of Kipling's wooing and wedding Caroline uaiestiei, the sister of his collaborator. etc. The distinguished Balestler ancestry was touched upon, even to mentioning Beatty Balestler's maternal grandfather, E. Pe shlne Smith, the New York jurist who was auviser oi ine Jiixauoof Japan on Interna tional law and who did as much or more than any other man to bring the flowery Kingdom unuer the light ot modern prog ress. Aim so, au nullum. The case was dished up for a clientele all over the country Tuesday morning, and here the correspondents who had come from out of town slopped over completely oy interviewing iseatty lialestier and giv lng a view of the case which not one per son in 10U lu Brattleboro would counte nance. Here aro a few choice samples: "Almost to a man, the sympathy of the iowiisioik is witn 'lieatty.' as everybody calls him. Kipling, by his eccentric de- meaner and his arrogant manner toward the residents of the town, has alienated many frieuds.' " "His conversation (Balestler's,) indi catcs that he has a sense of honor. He deplores the trouble, but holds that now that Kipling has seen fit to charge him with attempting to take his life, that the irouoie snau ue silted to the bottom." The hearing came Tuesday forenoon, and the large crowd of spectators who crowded into Judge Newton's office made adjournment to the town hail necessary, Kipling was sworn as a witness. Mr, Fitts first asked him about his residence here, etc., and then began on the proceed ings oi last weeK weunesaav. wh ch took place In the strip of woodland south of the Bliss farm. Kipling had lust fallen from his bicycle and cut his wrist, when Beatty Balestler urovo arounu uie curve. Beatty pulled up his horse close to the wounded cyclist and sang out: "See here, l want to taiK with vou." The men had spoken only once or twice for a year, aud Kipling replied: "If you tint u auy ming to say, say ii io my lawyer." , mis is no caso for lawyers," a ueaiiy s lunu response. Which was followed by other vocal explosions, like ii you uon i reiract those lies, I will punch the soul out of you. I will give you a week In which to retract, anu u you uon i, i win uiow out your brains." Through these blue streaks Kipling's tuitc iii icugiu peuetraieu, tuusiy: "lou will only have yourself to blame for the consequences." Beatty hurled back this: "Do you mean to threaten me. vou ?" Kipling could not remember much else mat loiiowed except that Balestler ap plied to him such names as "liar, thief, cheat and pnwnril ,f cheat and coward, I hen Beatty drove down to the cross roads, 50 yards away, turned around and started back home, while Kipling began iu uusu, not nue. ills uicvcie townrd umt. tleboro. Beatty did not dismount from the carriage, but waved his hands and shout- eu louuiy, and Kipling testified that he seemed not In his right senses. Are you afraid of him?" asked the states attorney. I honestly think he wou d kilt mo if he lost his head some time," said Kipling. Mr. Hltt conducted the cross-examination. Kipling said there was no open fric tion between himself and Balestler until about a year ago. Balestler's conduct be fore then had not been satisfactory, how ever. After a visit to Balestler's house, in May of last year, the cullminatlon came. Since then, there wero no dealings between tho two men, and they had spoken only once or twice. Kipling explained that ho went to Bales tler's houso twice with the intention of having their relations friendly, but Bales tier dropped him altogether. It aDneared that Balestler had acted as business agent for Kipling, and that he was accustomed to send In a kind of a bill, which was al ways paid by Mrs. Kipling. The last bill was rendered this spring, and Kipling him self drew a check for $40 In payment. The author was Interrogated as to al leged statements to the effect that he and Mrs. Kipling had assisted Balestler to large sums which ho was owing. Being pressed as to his conversations as to his financial relations with Beattv. hn i.i that Col. Goodhue had asked: "Have you not been holding Beatty up by the skirt of his trousers?" Kipling said ho told Col. Goodhue that he had been doing all ho could for him. Kipling denied that he had talkeil about his accounts with Beatty. -1 suppose you urn not tain with the re porters?" said Mr. Hitt. Back like a flash came: "The assump tion Is correct." Kipling said that he did not lmnlv that he had been carrvlnsr Balestler tlm m..t year, but that he had assisted him three years previous. ihere was a deal of testimony n tn tlm notes which Mr. and Mrs. Kipling had signed with Balestler, but which he paid, etc. 1 ' A dramatic situation Kipling declared that his main intention in settling In America was to "help that boy," meaning Balestler.
