Harvey C. Garber, the chairman of the

Wednesday, that William J. Dryan will

boiling, and far beyond human or animal
endurance. The record of 117 degrees,
while exceptional If not unprecedented In
Texas, Is not unknown in tho United
States. Even higher temperatures have
been recorded In tho Arizona "sink'' and

The candidacy of William H. Taft, sec
retary of war, for the Republican nomlna-
lon for President was endorsed Tuesday
by tho Republican state committee of
Ohio by a vote of 15 to 6. An attempt
was made to secure harmony by coupling
he endorsement with a declaration that
he Republicans of Ohio are opposed to
the elimination from public life of Sen
ators Foraker and Dick. The adherents
of the two senators refused to accept this
olive branch extended by the Taft sup
porters and no attempt was made to
make the action of tho committee un
animous. It Is probable that the Ohio del-
gatlon will be divided in the next na
tional convention, as Foraker will con
tinue his fight nnd will be able to secure
some of the district delegates. The Re

Considerable excitement was stirred up
last week by) some boys who let out the
water from the large reservoir east of tho
village on Wednesday night. Most of the
families on Main street arc supplied with
water from this source and all the hy

village. Tho water failed to run on Fri
day morning, the families depending on
tho supply In tho pipes when tne dls
covery wns made that tho large plug used
in tho outlet had been forced out. The

STOLEN MILEAGE BOOK RECOVERED
It Wat Sold by Stranger to Austin Mil
ler and Identified the Next Day as One
Mlsslnu from Newfane.
One of the mileage books stolen from
tho Newfnnu station of the We4t Hlver
railroad Thursduy night, July 25, was sold
to Austin Miller Tuesday of this week
und fell Into the hands of the railroad
again Wednesday. Mr. Miller was much
urprued when Informed tlyit the book
was a stolen one as he had bought It In
good faltli from a respectable looking
man nnd believed that it was all right as
It bore n. station agenta cancellation
tamp dated nt Brattleboro July 29. He
had received no warning to be on tho
lookout for the stolen books and when
the man camo Into the store Tuesday
evening about 9.30 o'clock with threo
mileage books, his suspicions were not
aroused. The man explained that through
a misunderstanding between himself and
his wlfci they had bought a new Central
Vermont mileage book when they already
una enougn mileage remaining In two
other books for their Immediate use. He
wanted to exchange one of the books for
a Boston and Maine book with enough
mileage to take himself and his wife to
SL Johnsbury. He even asked Mr. Miller
to figure out how much mileage wns
needed for the trip. After talking the
matter over a few minutes Mr. Miller
gave him a Boston & Maine mileage with
about 400 miles remaining and paid him
tne remainder in casn.
It so happened that Mr. Miller was
short of Central Vermont mileages and
was glad to get this 1000 mile book. A
few miles had been taken from it
ednesday morning he let the book out
o Charles B. Sprngue to go up the West
River branch jnnd the conductor on the
morning train was on the lookout and
took possession of the book. He tele
phoned to Mr. Miller and asked him
where he got It, satisfying himself that
.Mr, hprague was innocent In having the
toien boon in his possession. Mr. Miller
reported to the station agent a descrip
tion of the man as nearly as he could re
member. He appeared to be about 45
years old, well dressed, wore a derby hat
and was smooth faced. His manner was
pleasant nnd easy and Indicated a. man
of experience In travel.
Directly after the Newfane station was
broken into Deputy Sheriff Myron P.
Davis was Informed of the loss of the
books nnd their numbers, with a request
mat lie notify the men in Brattleboro
who dealt in mileage books. He failed
to notify Mr. Miller. If he had done so
It would have been nn easy matter to have
placed the man under arrest while he was
In Mr. Miller's store.
One of the unexplained aspects of the
affair Is the station agent's stampmark
on tne book. Though the date was
stamped July 27 It was In an old style
square stamp and not the round stamp
used at the local station at present. The
supposition is that the stamp was made
up or else someone connected with
the railroad in some manner had got
possession of one of the discarded stamps
andj allowed the thief to make use of It.
The stranger who could tell most about
the history of the book after It left the
Newfane station Is probably well out of
the way and everyone In any way con
nected with the affair admits that he
was a most nervy man to wait nearly a
week and then sell one of tho books In
the neu rest -large town to where the
robbery was committed. Altogether he
appears to bo about the slickest thief re
cently heard from.
Mrs. Mary G. Hlgglns.
Mrs. Mary Grltlln Hlgglns, 72, the last
survivor of one of the sturdy Irish fam
ilies that have made Bratlcboro their
home for more than half a century, died
Sunday night in her home on Elliot street.
She came here with her family1 when IS
years old and had lived hero ever since.
Just a month before she died her last
remaining brother, James Griffin, died In
Los Angeles, Cal. Mrs. Hlgglns had been
failing rapidly in health since sho was
hurt by falling downstairs Jan. 9 and for
the past two weeks had been confined to
her bed. The news of her brother's death
reached here July 19 and she was then
falling so rapidly that she could not real
ize that ho was gone. She was the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Griffin
and spent her early life In Ireland, With
her mother and brothers she came to
Bratleboro when IS years old and three
months after her arrival married Michael
Hlgglns of this town, who died about 14
years ago. Of the nine children born to
them only three) survive. They aro Miss
Mary E. Hlgglns nnd Mrs. John A. Lar

Complication In Three Suits.
A hearing on the Involved financial re
lations of George Ware of Brookllne and
his father-ln-law, James C. Church of
thai, place, will be held In Brookllne to
day. Three suits are to be decided. The
first Is ono brought by Mr. Ware against
Mr. Church to recover about J2300 alleged
to be duo as a balance of money owed
him for board In the past 17 years. The
seconnd suit Is brought by Mr. Church to
recover seoo on a note given by Mr. Ware
to hm. Tho third suit Is on a fore
closure of a mortgage note for $1200 given
to Mr. Church by Mr. Ware. All three
will bo referred to a board of arbitration
consisting of Attorney General C. C,
Fitts of Brattleboro, Hon. F. B, Pier of
Jamaica and Hon. E. P. Adams of Marl
boro. Both parties agree to abide by the
decision of the arbitrators. It appears
that Mr. Church, who is now 87 years
old, came to live with his son-in-law In
1890 and remained with him until the
spring of 1906, about 10 years. Ho then
left his home owing to a disagreement
nnd Mr. Ware brought the suit to collect
money for board during the 16 years. This
suit was brought last fall and Mr. Church
Immediately brought the two offsetting
suits on tho two notes given to him by his
son-in-law. Mr. Church claims that tho
