In regard to a newspaper report copied by the Reformer in its last is sue, James E. Byrne, manager of the Fall Mountain A. C. of Bellows Falls, writes us: "In your issue of February 21 is an article 'police stop athletics at Bellows Falls. ' I cannot understand how such an article should appear as there was no interference of any description, as the chief of police can testify. On the contrary, the manager was com plimented by the officials present (and there were several) for putting on such a clean, scientific exhibition. There was not an objectionable feature, and tbe audience was as well behaved as at any performance given in any theatre, and if more people attended such ex hibitions there would be less criticism as the faultfinding (if any) comes from persons who never saw a clean scien tific boxing match. They are not prize fights, as some people would infer, but simply good clean scientific ex hibitions of boxing. The management is just as particular to have clean sport as the people of Bellows Falls are to have him. " EAST DUMMEBST0N. Mr. and Mr. E. H. Brown gave a party Wednesday evening.

If I had all that is due me I could square up with the world and have money in the bank. Now I have some accounts on my books and if they are not set tled at once, I shall be forced to collect them. You pay me and I will pay the other fellow. If you do not, you will have to pay the other fellow and he will pay me what is left. Blue Store. JOHN GALVIN, Prop. BllA TTLEBORO, VERMOST.
