Estey Pianos
Are satlsfactory in
Tone, Touch, Action,
Construction ,
Finish, Design and Price.
Among the leading pianos of the world, none stand hlgher than
the ESTEY; Its envlable reputatlon has been galned by MERIT
ALONE. The piano of today Is not the plano of ycsterday. The
Estey Plano Company have not stood stlll the past fifteen years;
every effort Is made to Improve the plano and keep It up to date
and ahead of competltlon. More than double the number of
Estey pianos were sold in Brattleboro and viclnlty last year than
In any other prevlous year. Any local prejudlce that may have
exlsted agalnst the Estey plano has passed away; you wlll only
hear of It now from those who have "axes to grind."
When you select a plano, first for tone, second for durablllty,
thlrd for case design and fourth for price, an Inspectlon of the
Estey wlll convlnce you that It Is the plano for you to have In
your home.
Easy payments If deslred.

Our Congratulations.
We congratulate the people of Brattleboro for not letting
themsolves be mlsled by sweet-sounding advertlsements. Judg
Ing from the wonderful increase in our orders the last few weeks
over those of a year ago we are r-onvlnced that somethlng more
substantlal than brllliant advertislng is getting popular. It
wears better.
The great secret of the fast growlng popularity at our place
Is that the people are finding out the meanlng of our claim that
ve make suits for $10 less than others, which means, In a nut
shell, that thc goods we put in our $20 sults cost exactly tha
same as that in the $30 suits sold by other concerns.
Useless to talk of workmanshlp, as that is well known as the
best. We def y conipetitiou, not in the advertislng way, but we are
ready to put it at a test any time.
Don't forget that our Special Summer Suit for $10 and $12.50
costs less than ready-made suits, and by giving your order early
you will have ail the style and comfort through the summer, ab
solutely free of charge.
In order to attend better to our men's work we are forced to
dlseontinue taking orders for ladies' suits for at least 30 days.
We thank tkem for their kind patronago and hope to be favored
with the same in the future.

To thc man who wants to dress well, is the
subject of this week's argument. Perfect fit
is thc first element of perfect dress. To dress
well a man's clothing must, above all things,
fit well. The coat must shapc smoothly over
the shoulders, and Rracefully throughout.
The vest must be snug. The trousers must
carry just the right amount of looseness, yet
never ' ' bag. ' ' The clothing that does all this
must, first of all, be made right.
Schloss Bros. & Co. are considered the
most expert, careful clothes-makers in thc

The Vermont supreme court has

A Bit of Typewrlter Hlstory
A recent eenstis bulletin glves inter
I esting facts about the history of the
1 manufai ture and use of typewritlng
, machlnes in this country. The tirst
, typewrlter was invented in 1S2U, but
; was so cumbersome and slow as to be
. of no practiral use. An improved
macliine was made in 1S57, but was
not avnilable for practieal work for
the same reason. The first improve
ments which looked toward a mchine
I available for everyday work were made
1 in 1SGS. The first person to make a
1 practieal business uso of the type-
writer was S..N. D. North of Hoston,
I the presldent of tlie Natlonal Wool
Growcrs" associatlon. He used the
I typewrlter in his edltorial work, and,
tllOUCh it Was slow nnil olnniKV nm.
parcd wlth the light-working, rapld
machlnes of the present day. Mr.
North says: "I was ablo to accomplish
all my editorial writlng upon it. and
I began dlmly to realize what an un
speakable boon to all weak-eyed per
sons lay here in embryo." But it
was not untll 1S74 thnt tho typewrlter
was placed on the market for general
use. The census of 1000 shows a
total vlauo of the product of the 47
manufacturing concerns ln this coun
try of $0,932,000. This includes the
value of the machlnes manufactered,
and the whole Hne of "supplles."

Ernest Crosby.
The Dr. Conland Memorlal.
The total amount recelved ln sub
scrlptions during tho past weck for
tho proposetl monumcnt for Dr. Con
land's grnve Is upward of $100. Of the
$67.75 recelved at The Phtcnlx of
flco nearly all has been ln subscrlp
tions of one dollar each. One Brattle
boro Icttor contalned five dollars, but
the name of tho sender was not given.
While there are a good many mdro
people who will wlsh to givo a dollar
In Dr. Conland's momory, it ls tho
hope o'f those who have this matter in
charge that it may appeal to thc great
body of the doctor's cliontago who
may not feel able to glve more' than
a tjuarter of a dollar or a dlme, but
who will wish to be represented in
this way. There are in Brattleboro
and the country round hundreds of
men and women. yoftng and old. of
llmited means, whom Doctor Conland
llterally fathered and mothcred and
befrlended during all tho years of his
professlonal llfe, rogardloss of any
money consideratton, and those men
and women ought now to be glad to
lay their little tributes on hls gravo.
It is the purpose of thoso in charge
not to koop the subscription open be
ond a very limltetl time. Let what
is given be given at once.
These are the days when the fish
hog flourishes,. He is tho man wlth
so mueh of a porcine nature that he
sees nothing in fishing except tho
catching of a lot of flsh,, and his en
ergies are bcnt on getting a sufll
ciently large number so that he can
brag. He does not know the mean
lng of sportsraanship In any sense.
The two doctors from Bellows Falls
who spent the first three days of
May skinnlng the trout brooks in
Windham, returning with 43 pounds
and the men from Island Pond who
In two days took from big Averill lake
100 pouuds of lake trout are evidently
of the specles that may suffer from
iugrowing bristles.
Chester A. Arthur was the only na-!
tlvo born Vermonter who ever became -presldent
of the United States, and it ',
wlll be extremely fltting to have hls
birthplace in Fairfield near the Can-
adian line, marked with a monument.
Ejc-Gov. Stickuey has the arrange
ments in charge, and the dedication 1
wlll take place In July, when two of !
Arthur's cabinet, Kobert T. Lincoln of
Chlcago and William 12. Chandler of '
Concord, N. II., will dellver addresses,. '
History would have been written dif- '
ft-rently if the Hepublican party had
given Presldent Arthur the recogni- '
tiou to which he was entitled, and ,
Vermonters will do well at this day
to honor his nieniory. i
Haskins Under Suspiclon.
Northfield News. ,
It is hinted that Icepresentative '
Haskins of the second congressional !
dlstrict, who has always occupied
such a warm place . in the hearts of
his townsmon, is Just now under sus
picion. lt seems that Col. Haskins
provided geuerously for his constitu
ents this spring in the way of govern
ment aeeds. This was all hlghly ap
preciated until some of tho recipi
ents caught Col. Haskins buying
seeds for his own garden from a local
store. Now what they wlsh to know
Is if the genial Colonel was a victim
of his own generosity or if he knew so
much about the seeds ho sent from
Washington that he did not daro to
plant them on his own "farm." As
Col. Haskins is reckoned a pretty
good polltician he will probablv wait
with anxietythe harvost of tho fruit
which the free distributlon produces
before announcing his candidacy for
another term in congress. "

There is but one "best" way to catch 1
the publlc ee. ln an Inoffenslve and'
inirely leeitiinate manner. The great
tt merehants long slnce found out that ,
way. Look at the amazlns amount of
spread "ads,'' dlsplayed and small
"ads," publlshcd In all tho really
sueeesaful papers of tho land. In each
elty thtre are favorlte medla used by the
ehlef traders, and also by the humbler
cekers for help In tlmo of nced. Ar
raved attractlvely and classlfled exrertly,
tlu-se eolumns of announcement tell,
even to the onlinary reader, a story of
human Interest that few romances can
equal. Every phaso of exlstenco has Its
pliotograph, suBgestlcn or plea. The
classlllcatlon of announcemcnts ls a com
paratlvely new and ccrtalnly a hclptul
ald to the student of modern llfe. Old
Mr. Cennett Justltled the personals ln hls
paper, on tho ground that everythlne of

The deslre to know the news makes peo

Interosted to see his appeal. Tou are not
likely to look from your paper to the pos

car the freaks on tho street don't catch
your cye. "Prlnters' Ink" made Bonner

The most disastrous flro which has

j broke out early Sunday near the pin
I nacle, and lt has slnco swept over
the entire wooded area, from tho Gulf

j least 4 mlles long and nearly tho same
distance wide, as the ilanies spread
past the pinnacle, to Mine Mountaln,
and then nearly to the road leading
from North Hinsdale to Chesterileld.
Mr. Taylor's bulldings in North Hins

sunnuoned from Hinsdale to save
them. Some of the farmhouses In
Chesterileld havp also been endan
gered. Tho fire Tuesday destroyed
fiixty cords of wood owned by the
Brattleboro Iletreat. The total dam
age amounts to thousands of dollars.
livorything was dry and the liames
spread with great rapidity and ln
some places large trees are nothing
but blac-kened stumps.
lt is probable that many other trees
not destroyed will be left in such a
condition that the beautiful vlew of
Wantastlquet, which in recent years
had become almost a mass of green
in tho summer and a beautiful blend
ing of bright colors in the autumn,
will be marred for years. The men
from tho .Brattleboro Iletreat farm
have been fightlng the flames all the
week, but they have been powerless
to check them. Tho fire burned moro
fiercely to the north and east ends of
the mountaln, but Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday nights the flames made
a beautiful pyrotechnic display which
was watched by hundreds of people.
Regret has been expressed by almost
everybody over the fire. While the
loss falls largely on the Brattleboro
Retreat it is felt that in a general
way everybody has as all the people
of the village have an interest in the
mountaln which adds' so much to the
picturesque appearance of the vil
lage. How the fire started no one
knows definitely, but these fires oc
cur so frequently each year that the
belief will not down that they are ac
cidental. The condltions this time for
a devastation were more inviting than
ever before. the leaves of last year
and fallen brush belng as dry as" tin
der, after a month with only two
slight falls of raln.
Fire has also been running through
the Plsgah woods northeast of Hins
dale, where there Is a fine tract of
primeval forest. It was feared at one
time that the fire would play havoc
wlth 1,000,000 feet ot lumber owned
by George Amidon of Chesterfleld,
but tho result cannot be learned defi
nitely, as the section In which the
lumber is plled is a remote one.
