w. PIP THE WINDHAM COUNTY HEFORMEIl, FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 1002. the medbi2ER. "If the coatftla put it on." The Meddler opines that the town of Brattleboro would have a pretty law suit 011 its hands should some venture some wayfarer meot with an accident on the toll bridge. In its present shaky condition there is a very ffood ulinuoe for something of this sort to happen and the question would arise imme diately as to whether the signs which adorn the barrels at each end of the structure could be called suflieient warning. If the bridge is really such a frail piece of furniture as the experts make.it out the safest plan would seem to be the establishment of a substan tial board fence across each end. Speaking of the bridge reminds the Meddler of a story told him this week in connection with the advertising which is being done by the forthcom ing attraction "Out of the Fold." An orthodox-looking woman happening in at the postollice the other day was at tracted by the large poster which adorns the Auditorium entrance. The picture represents a woman thinly clad standing outside the window of abril liantly lighted house during a blinding snowstorm. In the background can be seen a church and in one corner a lamb standing alone in the storm. The orthodox-looking woman gazed at the picture a few minutes and then in quired at the postollice "when the meetings were going to begin?" . The usual display of Easter creations (which being interpreted means hats) were out, last Sunday, and many were the walking flower gardens and aviaries which could be seen on Main street during the day. It seems to have be come a custom hereabouts as well as in most places, the Meddler supposes, for young women of fashion to hunt up something as startling as possible and spring it as an Easter bonnet. No wonder milliners nave to go to farts for something new. For t he benefit of those who are inclined at times to com ment on the fearful and wonderful con struction of these lids it may be well to state that two boys' were shot in Chicago Sunday for doing the very same thing. INDOOR ATHLETIC CARNIVAL Did you ever come in contact with the Man Who Waits Until Saturday Night Before He Gets His Hair Cult The Meddler ran up against one of these creatures recently. He generally is found in about the center of the long line of tonsorial subjects which can be seen in any successful barber shop of a Saturday evening. He always is in a hurry for his turn to come and scowls malignantly at any person who. has tonic on his hair in addition to a shave, but when he himself once pets seated he gets a haircut, shave and often a shampoo and then wants the barber to spend several minutes brushing his clothes. No tips ever fall from his fin gers; on the contrary he is more likely to remain in the chair unt il ho gets his collar on and cravat adjusted. Com mend me to the Map Who Waits Until Saturday Night Uefore He Gets His Hair Cut, especially if I am in a hurry. 41 ' t W It 1 With the hepaticas, crocuses and ar butus which gladden the hearts of nature-lovers every spring comes the an nual appearance of another sort of plant which is hardly as "welcome though none the less a creation of nature. It is perennial and blooms in large quan tities on and near the railroad tracks, making its appearance with the first green grass and staying until the late frosts of autumn. It is a species of the family of parasites, has a pungent odor similar to that of a boiled dinner and is known hereabouts as the hobo. Large quantities of these blossoms are oftimes gathered by our town police and used to add beauty and fragrance to the gloominess of our local bastile. Benevolent housewives tind these ' spring beauties spreading their per fume on their very doorsteps and many of the more tender hearted matrons of ten cultivate them the whole season. How beautiful and noble is the thought of Natuie and how true are the words of the poet : "Floral Disciples, that in dewy splendor Weep without woe and blush without a crime; Oh. may I deeply learn and ne'er surrender Thy lore sublime." The Meddler. Held in the Retreat Gymnasium Saturday Evening Under the Auspices of the Y. M. C. A. Two Basketball Games and Exhibi tions in Aorobatie Work Baton Drill by Young Women. There was a good attendance at the athletic carnival given' in tho Kelreat gymnasiumSaturday evening under the auspices of tho . M. (J. A. The first eveut on the program was a basketball game between tho foi wards and the guards of the first aud second associa tion teams which resultod in a victory of 25-10 in favor of the guards. The contest was extremely exciting and al though tho forwards would naturally bo expected to make the most goals they were so well guarded by their op ponents that such was not the ease. Those who played on the guards' team were Briggs, L, Stafford, D. Stafford, Monroe and honguille. The forwards' team was made up of L. Cundiff, E. Cundiff, Ferritor, Woodward and Ellis. Between tho halves a baton drill was given by the following young women: Mary Cundiff, Mabel Hunt, Zetta Weld, Helen Rhode, Ella Newcomb and Margaret Averill. At the close of the game an exhibition in tumbling was given by Horton, Bixby, Wood ard, Chandler and H. Chandler. A basket ball game was also played between the first and second teams j with the men in their regular posi tions. The score at the end of the period of play was lf 1.". Luck seemed to favor the second team for it was extremely successful in caging the ball while the first team men were un able to shoot at all accurately. The first team was made up of the follow ing players: E. Cundiir and L. Cun dilf, forwards; Ferritor, center; Mon roe and L. Stafford, guards. The sec ond team's line-up was: Ellis and Briggs. forwards: Woodward, center; D.

The annual meeting of the Vermont Wheel club was held Tuesday evening in the club rooms with an unusually large attendance. The meeting opened with reading of the minutes after which one new member was voted into the organization. The rexrts of tho board- of governors, committees and officers showt;d the club to be in good standing financially after an exceed ingly prosperous year. It was voted to strike out section il of the by-laws thereby abolishing tho offices of cap tain and lieutenants. These officers were needed when the organi.at ion was principally made up of wheelmen and club runs were held regularly, but in late years the club has grown into a social organization and these officers have become superfluous. The annual election of officers re sulted as follows: President, Dr. (ieorge F. Barber; vice president, George S. Foster; treasurer, Charles H. Richardson: secretary, Adin F. Pettee ; governors, M. J. Moran, James F. Hooker and h. h. Perry. At the close of tho election a lunch was served by Hall and the remainder of theeven ening spent in sociability. The an nual sale of literature and periodicals also took place, C. R. Crosby acting as auctioneer. Report 0 Treasurer Shows the Organiza tion to Be about $840 in Debt System Adopted to Prevent Useless Expenditure Nearly All the Old Officers Re-Elected Entertainment for tho Benefit of the Club to Bo Given- The Wantastiquet Golf club held its regular annual meeting and n special aften meeting in the Brooks House parlors Wednesday evening, nearly 50 members being present. The present situation of the club was thoroughly discussed and a-plan of management for the coming season adopted. The report of the treasurer which followed tho reading of tho minutes showed that the club at the present time is about $810 in debt. The expenditures which have necessitated these loans have come partially from the construction of greens and repairs to the grounds, and partially because the committee which was appointed to build the ad dition to tho club house over-ran tho amount raised on subscription by about' &100. The amount owed the treasurer is on account of expenses which were contracted during tho year by individ ual members without tho knowledge of the treasurer. The secretary and treas urer's report was accepted and the fol lowing officers elected: President, Charles A. Miles: vico president. Miss Emily Tomes: secretary and treasurer, Charles A. Hoyden: board of govern ors, Charles A. Miles, Miss Emily Tomes, C. A. Hoyden, James Hooker and Mrs. C. S. Pratt. After tho election of officers C. il. Thompson sX)ke at length in regard to tho slipshod manner in which the club was carried on last season and recom mended that in order to prevent any further trouble each committee be ap propriated a certain sum at the begin ning of the season and made to stay within its limit Heretofore bills have been contracted by different members without the knowledge of the treasurer and as long as this is done the finan cial situation will be uncertain. On motion of C. F. Bingh.un a committee of three consisting of C. JI. Thomp son. C. A. Boydeu and C. M. Millt.r, was appointed to make out a list of ap propriations in accordance with the club's income. Tho meeting was then adjourned and a stieeial meeting WEST BBATTLEB0R0. Miss Lizzie Squiers is among those Out of the Fold. That the public never tires of an old story when skilfully reconstructed and well told, has many times been demon strated both in book and stage litera ture. Often a new treatment of an old theme will serve to attract attention to that subject more widely even than me original presentation, and it is , this well recognized fact that impelled Langdon McCormick to write a play upon the familiar Moody and Sankey hymn, "Ninety and Nine." The -old story of "the ninety and nine safely lodged within the shelter of tho fold" whilo one was "out on the hills astray," is treated different ly in "Out of the Fold" it is said, than it has been in any other play, in asmuch as tho heroine finally marries a good man who knows her history. Her early life out of the "fold" was spent in a city from which she comes to a village, a beautiful but unknown woman, bhe secures a position as a school mistress. Before her engage ment to a young school master is an nounced the story of her history in the city is made known to him. While her marriage to him violates all stage ver sions of the so-called inexorable "so cial law" the story is worked out in a manner to arouse the sympathy of an audience. This theme for a play has never before been brought to the "same conclusion. It will bo produced by Jepson and McCormick in the Audito rium on next Fiiday. Baptist Church Annual Meeting. There was an unusually large attend ance at the annual meeting of tho Bap tist cnurcn which was held Wednes day evening in the chapel. Tho re ports of the officers and committees oc cupied the first of the session and they were very encouraging. At pres ent the church after paying all debts has a small balance in the treasury, the deficit of between iStOO and $4(K which existed a few weeks ago having been entirely covered by voluntary subscription. There has " been, a net increase in membership during tho year of 85, and 1(15 new members have joined during that time. Reports from the Woman's Missionary and Aid soci ety, the Bible school and tho Chris tian Endeavor society were also given and showed these societies in a corre spondingly prosperous condition. These officers were elected : Deacons to serve three years, George S. Phil lips and S. W. Edgett: deacon to serve during tho late General Estey's unex pired term. Dr. it. 1). Jlolton: trus tee for three years, S. W. Edgett: trustee to fill out General Estey's term. J. Gray Estey: clerk, F. S. Knight; collector. A. E. Thurber: treasurer. H. B. Chamberlain: auditor. J. E. Hall: women members of the pruden tial committee, Mrs. W. E. Banks and Miss M. E. Horton. A committee consisting of II. P. Wellman. S. Wilcox and L. J. Retting was appoint ed to assist tho trustees in their work, and 11. P. Wellman was appointed trustee of a special fund which was formerly in charge of General Estey. called as soon as tho committee was ready to report. j The committee's report was as fol- j lows: Estimated income, ST it); fori green keeper. $275; for care of grounds, I $liRl: for equipment, s?!H): for prizes, e'.'ii; tor entertainment, tfl.i: leaving a balance of KM0 to be applied on the debt. This report was adopted, and attention was also called to article 7 of the by-laws which gives the greens committee full charge of the manage ment and improvement of the course. This article was made valid by rescind ing the-motion passed at a special meeting last September to tho effect that no bills should bo contracted with out tho approval of the treasurer. Although the condition of the club may seem anything but prospeious on the face of things it is in fact no more in debt than any young club with as many advantages. By the system of appropriations adopted the debt will ho paid in a comparatively short time and there will still be "left enough money tokeep the course in thorough ly good condition. There is also a movement on foot towards producing an entertainment the pioceeds of which will apply on the debt,- and if this is done a large share of it will no doubt bo liquidated. A resolution was handed in at the close of the meeting and will be in serted in tho call for the next regular meeting, amending the constitution so that all officers shall be elected by ballot: who are ill with the measles Listers met at Hotel Melrose yester day to collect the inventories.

GOSSIP FROM THE WORLD OF LETTERS- Tho French academy not kMg ago placed a tablet upon George hands house ntGai'glisse, which has resulted in a renewed public interest in the great French writer, and the recital of stories, old and new, about, her. Ono of these explains how she came to adopt the profession of literature. In 18.'U Mine. Dudevaut was living alone with Iter daughter in Paris, where, she earned her livelihood by painting mov ers and birds in water colors on a tiny surface of two square inches. Ono day she showed to Balzac five MS. of a novelette, and was aoviseu wiiu to her painting. Undiscouraged, she took-the MS. to Delatouche. editor to "Figaro," who at once gave her nn engagement, so that her earliest work was done on that journal. She wrote her first romance in collaboration with Jules Sands and the book was pub lished as written by "Jules Sand.' Her noxt work, "Indiana, " was en tirely her own, and to it she signed the name George Sand, which she never discarded. - It is probable that Mrs. E. H.

Easter was a day ot unusual interest i at the First Congregational church, j The fine weather brought out a large i congregation, many being glad of a bright Sunday after so many stormy j ones. The chorus of 18 voices rendered j tho hymns and anthems in excellent manner. The decorations were green anil white in great abundance and ar ranged with true artistic taste. The choral service at 5 o'clock, with reci tations and readings interspersed, was a charming service and delightfully worshipful.

The Oregon Agricultural Experiment station is making vinegar from prunes. If it proves satisfactory to consumers, its manufacture will be of great value to western prune growers as an outlet for tho very small prunes and those which partly ferment in drying. Prunes, being very sweets will produce a large quantity either of alcohol or of vinegar. The vinegar produced from prune juice in Oregon is said to bo so strong as to require its dilution ry one-half to bring it down to the com mercial stnndard. Essences are coming bacK into favor as disinfectants. Tho bactericide prop erties of a large number of them have been established and their power has been found much greater than had hitherto been supposed. Among the most active of these essences are card amon, Chinese cinnamon, lavender, origanum, wallflowers, geraniums, French wormwood and extract of tube- j rose. In less than an hour, by the j simple use of their vapors, microbes are killed, such as those of pus, of - cholera and the intestines. The ac tivity of these' microbes is visibly di minished after being subjected to theso vapors for six minutes. - Dr. Tore, a medical man of much re pute in Vienna, advocates as an effec tive remedy for rheumatism the satu rating of the patient's body with the venom of bees. For the purpose he ex tracts the venom, treasuring it up in quantity, aud applying it artificially in the way of punctures. He founds this treatment on his discovery that rheumatic patients do not suffer from a bee's sting to anything like the same degree as other people. When the pa tient' suffers himself to be stung re peatedly, his immunity against the! poison of the bee becomes complete, and he feels no pain, whatesoever. j What is more, he gets cured of his j rheumatism. , I Surgeons have recently performed an j unusual operation on a little boy in I New York who had a deformed nose ; the first eight years of his life which j caused him great suffering in his at- ' tempts to breathe. Ono nostril was en- j tirely closed and the other so dwarfed j and distorted that as he grew older he i strangled and had convulsions through his inability to get air. Physicians finally decided to attempt the boring of a new nostril and the building up of a new nose. They cut open tho left nostril and chiseled through a mass of bone to the base of the nose at the left eye and then established an opening through the natural nasal channel down to the throat. Then they folded back the skin over tiny wooden splin ters and fashioned the nose on this frame-work in the shape it would be if normal. The boy can now breathe through both nostrils freely and the physicians are watching the case with great interest. The Medical Times speaks of wood alcohol as a fatal and insidious poison whose virulence has been almost un suspected until recently. It is now so purified and deodorized as to beeasilv mistaken for grain alcohol and is used for many purposes for which ordinary alcohol is employed as its cost is less than half that of the latter. It is there fore not surprising 'that it is often j swallowed as a beverage.

The important conclusion ; that the country is flooded with a sub tle poison even more dangerous to vis ion than to life itself, since, whenever a toxic amount of wood alcohol has been taken (and this amount, as al ready stated, may be very small), we must expect a blindness more or less complete.

The soul dwells in its holy place, into which God alone can enter. Men hide their lives. They do not like to wear the heart upon the sleeve. Therefore, the tragedies upon our streets, of which we are ignorant. Therefore, heroisms which are quite unsuspected. What fidelities among the poor! What bat tles are fought and what victories gained by one who stands close beside us, whose heart history is unread! If we knew our fellows as God knows them, what harshness would turn' to gentleness and love! What enmities would become friendship Rev. New ell Dwight Hillis. : "Ben" Butler's Love for Flowers. Every one who was ever at. all inti mate with "Ben" Butler will remem ber his great love of flowers, but there are very few people today who could tell what led to this stroug attach ment. An interesting light was thrown on the subject by Judge Barker of the supreme court at the recent banquet of the Middlesex Bar Association. Tho judge was attending a reception at which Mr. Butler, then governor, was present, and the governor, as was his wont, displayed a handsome bou tonniere in his buttonhole. The care which he took to preserve it at last caused a smile from the judge, notic ing which the governor went on to say : "Many years ago, when I was" a struggling young lawyer, with an office in Boston and living in the suburbs, I was forced to be up early many morn ings nnd to come into town on an early train. But never in all those years d id my wife fail to be up before me, to see for herself that a comfortable break fast was prepared for me, nnd with her own barfils to pluck a boutonniere for my buttonhole. I grew to love those flowers, anil since she has passed awav, nn matter in what part of the world I am, if I can obtain Mowers for love or money 1 make it a point to do so, nnd wear them in memory of her.

The people of the United States have remembered their own declaration of independence and have fulfilled a dutv to mankind Statement by President-elect Palma of Cuba. I "There has been little stir thus far j in county politics. Indications point. I however, to several contests before tho , convention meets in July. It is gen- orally understood that Z. II. Albee of j Bellows Falls, will be a candidate for senator from tho northern part of the county. He was a candidate two years: ago for the nomination, but owing to defeat in his own town by John L. Divoll. his name was not presented to the convention. Mr. Divoll secured the Rockingham delegation and went into ' the convention with a good following, but was defeated bv A. E. Cndworth of Londonderry, who secured a renoin ination. It is said that Mr. Divoll in tends to try again this year, and if he does there will be an interesting con test for Rockingham delegates between Mr. Divoll and Mr. Albee. "It may be possible that tho contin ued illness of La van t M. Read, the present judge of probate for the West minster district, will prevent, his be ing a candidate for re-elect ion In thnt event Mr. Allbee, who has for a num ber of years been the register of pro bate. 'may boa candidate to succeed Judgo Read, which would take him out of the senatorial contest. It is con ceded that Anthony F. Schwenck. of this place, will receive the nomination for state attorney. C. D. Spencer of Wilmington is mentioned as a possible candidate for the senatorship from this end of the county. Mr. Sjiencer was defeated two years ago bv E 11 Miller of Dumni of Col. (ieorge W. Hooker would be gian 10 nave lnm consent- to become a candidate. Col. Hooker has not given his friends any encouragement, but it is thought if he will say the word that he can have the nomination and the lection. It is probable that all the other county ollicials will receive re nomination without contests." MORAN CO.
