Bear Has Been Seen Several Times in Marlboro But is Still at Large. Marlboro has been surcharged with oxcitement for days over tho depre dations of a bear. which has kllled about 30 lambs. The animal has not folowed the usual bent of bears. as Iaid down by uaturnlists, lu simply kiillng lambs neces.-ary to satisfy its hunger, but has carried away a large iiiimbor of carensse.s. Some of tho hnntors think that the bear has cubs and lias carried away the lambs to feed the young ones. Our Marlboro correspondent sends tho following ac count: Friday moiuing of last week, as C. C. Ryder, who Uves on the Hugh Adams farm. collected his sheop for the pnrpose of shearing. lie found many lambs mlssing. Supiosing it to be the work of foxes, Mr. Ryder returned his sheop to the pasture Sat urday morning. but on going to the pasture Saturday night he found the (lock scattered and a large black bear lu hot pursuit. Mr. Ryder rallied such help as was at liand and Bruin lled. Sunday morning. as members of Deacon Hamilton's family were on thcir way to church, they saw the bear cross the stage road betwoen John Whltney's and Charles Fletch er's. As C. W. Snow and family were on thelr way to church they saw Bruin coming from the stage road and goins; towards tho North pond woods. This was the last sight of the bear. but tliere are many indica tions of his return to tho s'cones of his former efforts. All told there have been kllled 20 or 27 slieep and lambs in Mr. Hyder's pasture, and two or three In the pasture of E. P. Adams. The bear Is yet at large. and there are still a few sheep nml tender lambs left in onr pastures. Smallpox Scare. A sinall Pox seare has developeil thls week owing to the Illness of a 12-year old daimhter of Winlleld lloiiKhton, who Uves near tho deer p.irk In Halifax, owned bv his brother, 1.. l Houghton. Mr. and Mrs. Houghton ennie to Brattleboro Tues day wlth the glrl. She went into Thomas's pharmacy nnd asked for some medlcine whkh would 1h good for vy poNoning. Tho eruptlons on her face. hanris nnd arms wro then plalnly visi blo. btu they had not reached tho pusttile slage. She wns advlsed to consult a pliy slclan. She wont to Greene's drug store. where a slmllar Intiulry wns made to that at tho olhi'i- drug store. Slr. Greeno sum moned Dr. C. U. Aldrlch, who. upon ex nmlnatlon lu his oin.n nt iiounced the illse.ise smnll pox, and Dr. I JI. D. lloiton of tho stnte board of health. who wns ealled, eonllrmed thls dl.ignosls. 1 The glrl was taken dlreetly liack to her . homo in Tliillfnv ni- Vl,lt...i, n..,t Wednosday and vacclnated all the pooplo who had been exposed, and precautlons were tnken by fumlgatlng (ho places ln Brattleboro which the glrl hnd entered. The dlseaso Is In a mild form, duo to vacclnatlou. but owlng to tho exposure of Tuesday the glrl was serlously lll on Wednesday. Hor condltion was no worse yesterday. when Dr. Aldrleh made an other vlslt to Halifax, nnd vacclnated a numlior of other people. Tlio physlclans bellevo that thero Is no occasion for alarm. ns the glrl wns outdoor a largo part of the tlme, nnd saw only two or three people Indoor whlle she was In Brattleboro. Every precautlon wlll be takon, how over, to prevent the dlsease from spread Ing. lt is supiMjsed that she contracted small pox through tho vlslt of friends from a Massachusetts town, where a few nises have exlsted. The supreme court declded nt Montpel ier yesterday that James E. Burke, Dem ocrat, ls tho rlghtrul mayor of Burling ton, nnd ordered Dr. D. C. Hawley, Ue publlean, who has been nctlng as the clty's chlef executive, to refraln from In lerferlng ln any way wlth Mr. Burke in tho exerclse of his dulles as mayor. Judge Tyler nnnounced the declsion, Tho court holds that 10S liallots marked by a cross nt tho end of both tho Democrtlc and local optlon tlckets should havo been counted, ns lt wns plalnly tho Intentlon of the voters to voto for Burke. A man's wlfo should alwaya be the same, especially to her husband, but If sho ls weak nnd nervous, and uses Car ter's Iron Pllls, she cannot be, for they make her "feel llke a dlfferent person," so they all say, and thelr husbands say so tool HAWLEY.
