Burton F. Perry, 34, formerly clerk In tho Brooks House Pharmacy, died of paralysis this morning at his home In Dummerston. He sustained a shock of paralysis Aug. 13, 1899, but had been able to go about with the use of a cane since then until a week ngo Inst night, when he sustained another shock, after which he was unconscious practically all of the time. Ho was born In Putney Juno 20, 18T1, nnd was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Zenas Perry, now of Dummorston. TTr. frnriimtA.i from the Hlnsdalo high school, after wmcn ne learnea tno drug business and was employed In Hinsdale, Dalton, Mass., and Brattleboro. Ho leaves, besides his parents, one brother, George Perry of Clinton, Mass., nnd one sister, Mrs. I,ydla Brown of Millers Palls. The funeral will be held at his late home at 2 o'clock Sun day, nev. J. D. King of Putney officiating. Mr. Perry was honorable In every contact of life, and had tho confldcnco and esteem of all who know him. Hundreds Killed In Russian Mutiny. A frightful mutiny and massacre, In which hundreds of. lives were lost. Is re ported from Cronstndt, Russia, near St Petersburg. The accounts of the trouble are conflicting, but It seems that both sailors and soldiers have turned against the government, and that civil war Is rag ing. Game Commissioner Thomas has been notified of the killing of 395 deer In Vor mont during the recent open season. "Square (Mr.) Root" the Story of a Col lege Nickname. In the November World's Work Henry Beach Needham has written a character study of Ellhu Root, tho now secretary of state. One story of Mr. Root's college days Is a significant contribution to the understanding of his character today. Says Mr. Needham: In college he was a consistent worker. He carried oft the first prize In mathe matics. On his record In scholarship ho was appointed valedictorian of his class and thereby hangs a tale. During his Junior year occurred what was called tho "German rebellion." Because of dislike of and dissatisfaction with the Instructor In German, his class withdrew from college In a body every man save Root. Tho class was out about two months, but dur ing that time ho went regularly to his recitations. The explanation vouchsafed Is that, because of his father's official con nection with the college as a member of tho faculty, Root could not Join In the secession. It was an unfortunato situa tion, for which he may have been entirely blameless. At all events, he never lost tho nickname which had been given him, tho son of "Cube" Root, early In his collego course. It was "Square" Root, and of this significant diminutive his fellow students considered him worthy, despite his lack of popularity. After nil, the only importance attaching to the secession Is that, when tempted and sorely tempted he must havo been he would not desert his work. This trait has followed him throughout his career, as will be shown, nnd In con siderable degree has .contributed tq his success. Following his graduation In 1864,. Mr. Root became tho Jicnd of the co-educa-tlonal aoademy of Rome, N, Y., In which ho taught the classics and mathematics. Ho was popular with his students, who not only respected and admired tho young Hamilton graduate, but formed a warm affection for him which has lasted through the years. Somewhat to his father's dis appointment, he abandoned teaching as a career after an experience of one year and turned to the law. Professor Root offered his son letters of Introduction to Influen tial persons In New York city who could help him; these he refused. "I am going to make my own 'friends -without any family pull.

Vermont's Great Healer, Performs No Less Than Mlrlcals the Past Week. One woman came with organic con dition of years standing which the medical faculty had repeatedly re fused to treat unless sho would sub mit to an operation. Prof. Wllklns dared to attempt tho case and the woman left his offlco so much relieved that sho cried for Joy. Prof. Wllklns treated one of tho worst ruptures on a man 63 years old. The rupturo was as largo as a man's head and had not been put back for 2 years. Prof. Wllklns replaced It without Injury or pain to the patient. If suffering men nnd women wish to be convinced let them come to Prof. Wllkins's olfices and see and learn for themselves. It wont cost you one cent to seo nnd consult tho man who makes these cures. A doctor came to seo If this power was what It was claimed to be. and went homo and brought his wife for treatment. Magnetism cures whether tho case bo doctor, minister or priest.
