Ml. View at East Burke
Features Bobby B, Which
Won State Prize
Because of the development of the
automobile the laising of driving
horses has disappeared to a large ex
tent and no longer are there huge
numbers of ladies' and gents' driv
ers exhibited at our fair. In fact the
only exhibit of drivers at the fair
this year was the line .string of Hon.
Elmer A. Darling from Mt. View
Farm at East Eurkc. There were 14
Morgans from the stables which con
tain some 40 head uiid included in
the lot wore prize winners from the
Madison Square Garden Horse show
as well as the bearers of the blue
ribbons from the State fair. One of
the finest, Sir Ethan A'len, was not
shown here, but he is now in training
for exhibition at the national horse
show !it Chicago, where he lias been
selected by the United States Gov
ernment and the Morgan Horse Club
as the finest type of Morgans. Bobby
B, is here, having just been awarded
tfce grand championship at the State
lair ana he also took first premium
at the last New York horse show.
Little Justin is an 8 year old gelding
that is matched with Hazella. This
matched pair of black chestnuts won
first prize at the State fair. Bob II

nut mare with a foal by her side. Mr.
Darling has one Kentucky saddle
horse, also a thoroughbred, and
Boots is his name.
There is the largest line of draft

Eelgian, which were bred in Illinois.
The average weight of each horse is
1,500 pounds. George C. Cary has
a good exhibit of draft horses, G.
II. Stanton & Son has a- - splendid
draft horse and others in this class

vine M. Cummings.
The saddle horses and ponies are
m the big barn presented to the so
ciety by E. M. Tait, now of Whitins
ville. The exhibit of Thomas Bass
of Mexico, Mo., attracts much atten
tion and though small in number the
quality is the best. Mr. Bass shows
"Belle Beach," the high school horse,
a handsome black mare; Nickel
Plate, a gray horse, and Jack of
Hearts, a son'el horse. The high
school horse has won prizes all over
the United States ami will greatly
please the crowd with her wonderful
tricks. Nickel Plate was winner of
the highest prize in this class of
two Madison Square Garden shows,
and Jack of Hearts has a big lot or
blue ribbons to his credit which he
received in the big western shows.

First War Bride to
Come to Lyndonville
At the home of the groom's par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. George A. Whip
ple of Lyndonville, at noon on Sept.
22, occurred the marriage of Harold
Allen Whipple and Miss Andree
Honedry of Rennes, France. The
ceremony was performed by Rev.
Charles Kimball of Glover, former
pastor of the Lyndonville Universa
lis! church beneath a drapery of the
American and French flags. The
couple were attended by Mr. and
Mrs. Myron Eastman, the latter a
sister of the groom. The bride was
gowned in white crepe de chine over
silk and wore a veil festooned with
pearls. Mrs. Eastman wore a gown
of white voille trimmed with hand
made lace from Brittany. After the
ceremony luncheon was served, only
the immediate relatives of the
groom being present. The bridal
pair left later by auto fpr a trip
through Vermont. Mr. Whipple
served 21 months overseas in the
26th regiment. He was mustered out
at Camp Mills, July 18. The match
is a culmination of a romance which
began when Mr. Whipple was at the
University at Rennes, France. Mrs.
Whipple is an orphan. She arrived
in New York, Sept. 15, on the steam
er, La France, and has been a guest
at the Whipple home since her ar
rival. She has traveled extensively

GRANGE WINS
FIRST PRIZE
Enterprise of Lyndon, Wide
Awake and Danville Fol
low in Order of Merit
Green Mountain grange of St.
Johnsbury Center carried off the first
prize of $30 in the competition
among nine granges for the booth in
Floral hall.
The second prize of $20 went to
Enterprise Grange of Lyndon with
the W ide-Awake grange of St. Johns
bury Center third, a prize of $10,
and the Danville grange fourth.
The grange showing was one of the
big features of the fair. So impres
sed was Starter Trafton of the track
races that he wired to the granges in
Maine to get busy and make the
grange exhibits features of the Maine
fairs. He said it was one of the best
things he had ever seen at a fair in
New England.
The Green Mountain Grange had a
wonderful showing of variety of farm
products, including 25 varities of
apples, 22 kinds of beans, 15 differ
ent kinds of eggs.
There was a big sheaf of tobacco
raised by N. H. Beford and a whole
shelf full of wheat and grain prod
ucts from E. A. Gray's maple
sugar, sage, Windsor beans and fancy
worn are Known 'in enaiess variety, a
deer head, a bear and bear rug give
an unusual touch to the otherwise
domestic display of good things. Un
ique in this collection were the fine
specimens of home made soaps, both j
hand and soft made by Lewis Le
clair and sand soap made by Mrs.
Eliza Allen.
The Enterprise Grange of Lyndon
showed over 200 cans of fruits and
vegetables, fancy work and a large
case filled with a choice collection of
fancy cooking. On a center table a
basket cut from a big pumpkin, filled
with fresh fruit. All the cloth work
in the display was made from the
products of Lyndon farms
In the center of the booth of the
Wide-Awake;Grange of St. Johnsbury
Center was a 'show case filled with
fancy cooking with a cake having the
initials P. of H. There were vege
tables, fruits, cut flowers and potted
plants in profusion, all tastefully ar
ranged and at the front is a line of
fine yellow seed corn. There was a
fine display of canned goods of every
sort and kind.
The Danville grange exhibit arous
ed deep interest. For unique features
it was in a class by itself.
H. E. Danforth's swarm of bees
occupied the center in front. This was
flanked by baskets of fresh straw
berries and raspberries and "Peter
Peter, pumpkin eater," a real Punch
and Judy rhow made in a big pump-
Idn with figures made out of veget-
watermelon cradle jealously guard
ed by a squash mother. They were
fixed up by Mrs. C. A. Adams. There
were 31 kinds of apples and as many
as 200 varieties of canned goods, all
wonderfully set off in a back ground
of maple leaves.
FAIR NOTES
The judge of the livestock was An
drew Elliott of Gault, Ontario, a man
of wide experience who has been re
presenting the department of agricul
ture in Vermont as judge of the fairs
this fall.
An episode that happened so quick
ly Tuesday afternoon that no one of
the officers got the names of the par
ties was the appearance on the
grounds late in the day of an officer
from White River Junction with a
writ to arrest a man charged with
stealing automobile tires, said to be
at Claremont, and selling them at
White River Junction. ' The man had
just arranged with Supt. Sherry to
set up a game of chance, but the
sheriff gathered him in, and after a
brief visit to the lock-up took him
back to White River Junction where
he will be held for a hearing.
The Caledonian booth in Floral
Hall had many visitors Tuesday and
throughout the afternoon the Even
ing Caledonian sold like hot cakes.
The bulletin in the booth had all the
Associated Press news of the day and
attracted much attention. Be sure
and visit the Caledonian booth before
leaving the Fair Ground.
The most disappointed man on the
grounds Tuesday was the party who
had secured a booth to make candy
throughout the fair and was unable
to get white sugar either in St. Johns
bury or elsewhere for the manufac
ture of his wares.
It may be there wer-busier men
Tuesday than President Cary and Sec
retary Harriman, but if there were
the Caledonian man did not see them.
Through the forenoon there was some
confusion in arranging the various
displays, but by night everything was
in readiness for a big fair.

A Real Fair
The Caledonian congratulates Pre
ident Cary, Secretary Harriman and
the Fair Ground directors for giving
the people of northeastern Vermont
a real fair last week. There were
fine exhibitions of stock and farm
products that it would be hard to du
plicate at the largest fairs in New
England for purity and quality.
The Grange exhibit was one of the
best features ever introduced and as
for Midway attractions and amuse
ments there were varieties enough to
suit all. The police and the traffic
men handled the big crowd on Wed
nesday like professionals and every
body helped to make it safe for ped
estrians and those in carriages and
automobiles. It was a great -lood-natured
crowd that came and went
away satisfied because they go their
money's worth.
FORMER WORLD
CHAMPSTOMEET
STRONG TEAM
The New York Giants who will
finish in second place in the Na
tional League this year will play an
exhibition game in St. Johnsbuiy on
Friday afternoon, October 10th. This
big sporting event the first time a
big league team has ever played in'
St. Johnsbury is made possible by
patriotic citizens making a substan
tial guarentee to the team to camo
here ' ' '
Capt. Max Gilfillan who since hi'
return from war service overseas has
worked hard to put this town ii i
the baseball map, is responsible for
the appearance of the Giants h?ie.
He has worked night and day fo
week to land this big attraction for
Northeastern Vermont.
If weather conditions are favorable
it is safe to bet that St. Johnsbury
will see one of the largest crowds ,
that has ever attended a baseball
game in this section. It is cxpecte.l .
'that the crowd will come from all
parts of the state to sec this major
league attraction.
The Giants played a double header
with the Boston Braves yesterday
and the teams split even. The Giants
wot the first game 14 to 2 with E.
Smith in the box. The Braves took
away the second game to the tune of
8 to 4. Scott pitched for Boston and
Snover and Barnes for New York.
One why the Giants wanted to
play here is because Dubuc, a St.
Johnsbury boy, is a member of the
New York teamThe nine is also on
its way to Montreal for a special
series' with the team there.
St. Johnsbury makes a convenient
stopping off place for an exhitition
game.
Capt. Gilfillan is picking up a team
to play the Giants and will have some
star players in the line-up which will
be announced later.

English teachers of the state for the
purpose of considering an affiliation

Harold B. Phelps, a farmer resi.i
ing near Kceler's Bay was discovere.l
dead in the body of his wagon near
the silo on his farm, death being due
to suffocation. In some manner Mr.
Phelps was evidently tipped from the
driver's seat into the rear of the wag
on which was partly loaded with corn
cobs from a canning factory and his
head hung over the side of the wagon
the weight of his body shutting off
his breath at the nock. It is presum
ed that when he fell he became dazed
and was unable to hglp himself. He

Delusions of Grandeur?
The Brattleboro Reformer advo
cates the manufacture of brick out
of waste granite and Washington,
Caieuonia and Orange counties ere
having visions of becoming the bick
centers of the world. One of the pen
alties ot progress is the continual up
setting of the existing order of
things. Bricks have been made of
clay since the days when the Israel
ites were not provided with straw
and now some individuals with a cur
ious turn of mind proposes to knock
the whole business into a cocked hat
and substitute ground granite. There
is probably enough quarry waste in
anrl around the town and city of
Barre to make a sufficient number of
bricks to build a few cities of tbe
size of New York provided the dream
is one that comes true. A half cen
tury ago there was a thriving oliro
mining business in the town of Ben
nington and a few small fortues were
built on the product. Most of the
ochre was used in the manufacture of
oil cloth. Some one discovered th.it
ground waste from slate quarries
would answer the purpose and the
ochre business began a slow ride to
ward comparative oblivion. The
world moves and the old move out
of the way for the new. St. Albans

Don't Shoot Partridge
(Barre Times)
Hunters in Vermont should bear in
mind that the partridge is a protected
game bird until September, 1921.
Failure to abide by that mandate of
the state will result in a considerable
expenditure of money providing the
violation of the law comes to atten
tion of the authorities. The reason
for the prohibition on the killing of
partridges this year and next is be-
cause of the threatened extermination

SAD DEATH AT
LYNDONVILLEOF
LULU BIGELOW
Had ftlllleied Severely With
Neuritis for the Past
Month
Lyndonville people received a sad
shack Monday morning when inform
ed that Mrs. A. Lulu, wife of Elisha
Bigelow, had met death at her own
hands some time between midniht
and daylight. She was found on the
back door step of the home of Dr. A.
A. Cheney, having shot herself with a
revolver. Mrs. Bigelow had o-vned
a revolver for nearly a dozen years,
keeping it in her store and occasion-'
ally bringing it home nighfs when
she had considerable, money with her.
Mrs. Bigelow had been suffering
terribly the past month with neuritis
from which she got little relief and
last night her husband stayed up
with her until 11.30 and then retired.
Sometime in the night she went over
to Dr. Cheney's house. About 3,30 in
the morning Dr. Cheney thought he
heard his door bell ring, but could
not discover that any one was
around. It is possible that she came
to the doctor's house about thi3 time
and that she took her life so-n after.
Miss A. Lulu House was born in
Beebe Plain, P. Q., 58 year3 ago tnd
was married in 1885 to Elisha Bige
low, the well known passenger con
ductor on the Passumpsis division of
the Boston & Maine railroad. They
came to Lyndonville at thi3 time iind
have lived there ever since. For al
most all of the time Mrs. Big-slow has
conducted a millionary establishment
and she had a fine trade-not only in
her home town, but in the suuour.d
ing country. Mrs. Bigelov: entered
heartily into the social and civic life
of the community and had n wide
circle of friends who - extend their
deepest sympathy to the husband in
his sorrow. No arrangements have

ACADEMY NOTES
Much enthusiasm has been aroused
over the fact that plans for the pro
curing of a greatly needed pjano
have been started. The piano that
now adds its contribution to the daily
chapel exercises was a gift to the
school of the class of '92 and now
feels the necessity of retiring from'
active service owing to its many
years of active service. Tuesday
morning in Chapel Principal Davis
brought to the attention of the Stu
dent Body that there were several
sums of money to the credit of the
school .which had been lef from the
proceeds of the various plays and
concerts givin during the last fewi
years. During the discussion that
followed it was unanimously voted to
use this money, to the total sum of
one hundred and eighty-seven dollars
for the nucleus of a piano fund.
Nominations for the officers of the
Athletic Association are as follows:
President, Merton Ashton; vice pres
ident, Miss Janet Sperry, Miss Olga
McClary; secretary, Miss Iris Under
wood, Miss Mildred Rann; Treasur
er, Miss Doris Cowlos, Miss Marion
Hall and Misr Ernestine Brown. The
office of assistant foot ball manager
