! Miss Amelia Bingham's special
: company will present her production
i of Clyde Fitch' play. "The Climbers,"'
i in this city Wednesday evening. "The
: Climbers" is a satire upon the pre
vailing craze for so-called social dis
tinction, and the dehumanizing effect
of the mania for the accumulation of
wealth, is altogether seasonable and
wholesome. This comprehensive topic
is handled with adroitness and force
by Mr. Fitch.
A number of the friends and neigh

The first really cold weather of the

hills were covered with snow for a
short time. The temperature was still

About oO members of the Woman's ,
club gathered in the Brooks House
Wednesday afternoon to listen to the
lecture on "Art" by Miss Vryling A.
Buffam of Winchester. N. II. The lec- '
turer treated her subject broadly, mak- '
ing no attempt to go into detail. She
spoke of arts in different countries and
its relation to the progress of the world, .
and emphasized the benefit of a knowl
edge of art as a help to appreciate ev
erything that is beautiful. Miss Buf
fam is thoroughly familiar with her
subject and her lecture was exceeding
ly interesting.
A lecture under the auspices of
the Chris' ian Science society of Brat

Ewing has serve,! as United States dis
trict attorney for the northern district
of Illinois, was also elected to the su
perior court bench of Cook county,
111., serving several terms. He refused
re-election a few years since in order
that he might devote his entire time
to the cause of Christian Science and
to the benefit of his fellowmen. The
lecture is free and the public will be
cordially welcome.
Miss Amelia Bingham's production
of Clyde Fitch's "The Climbers."
which' will lie presented in this city at
the Auditorium Wednesday evening
will set the millinery end of the town
agog, because of the gowns of its -feminine
interpreters. Its scene of a
Christmas dinner party is so perfect in
all its details that it establishes a new
precedent in the matter of stage set
tings. For artistic effect and absolute
naturalness the scene has never been
equalled on an American stage. Joined
to all this a story which in all its de
tails is typical and representative of
Xew York life as it is to-day. The
company, which stops at Brattleboro
on its w'ay from Philadelphia to Mon-
is now working. Come

The temperance committee of the
legislature yesterday agreed on four
sections of the bill which they are to
report. Two sections are from the
I .emocratic or Conlnnd bill. These sec
tions refer to the establishing and de
fining non-partisan license boards. Two
sections are nominally tho-e of the
Fletcher bill but which are substan
tially as all the othr bills, defining
what shall be considered intoxicating
liquors and exempting cider from the
operation of the law.
- Miss O-lla Wilder Clark, T. died
at the home of Mrs. Mary Acker iu
Hornell-ville, X. Y. . Tuesday morn
ing after a long illness. The body was
brought here last evening and was
'buried in Prospect Hill cemetery this
morning. Miss Clark was a niece of
the late Judge R. W. Clark and lived
in Brattleboro for many years, attend
ing the Br-ittleboro High' school. She
lived in the (.'lark house on High
street for som- time after Judge
Clark's death but removed from town
about eight years ago. Since that
time she had spent some time in
Bridgeport. Conn., but lately had
1 been living with Judge Clark's daugh
ter, Mrs. Acker.
- Local interest attaches to the fire
which partially destroyed the Ameri
can House in Greenfield Friday even
ing in that the proprietor, F. A. Eels,
is a brother of (. A. Eels of this town'
and formerly lived on the Putney road.
The tire was discovered about 11
o'clock in the coal bin which is in the
L of the hotel and it was nearly two
hours before the flames were under .
control. All of the guests escaped in ;
safety although a few suffered not a
little from the effects of smoke. The
hotel has been thoroughly remodelled
and refurnished by Mr. Eels only a '
short time ago and was doing a good j
business. Among those who occupied .
stores in the block were Dunham
Brothers, whose stock of boots and
shoes was badly water soaked, and S.
Wilcox, also of this town whose X-w
York bargain s.ore suffered some dam
age. The attraction on the local foot ;
ball tield to-morrow will be a tame be
tween the Bratth-lioro Athletics and'
the eleven representing the Greenfield
St. Joseph Temperance society. After
the surprisingly strong showing of the
local players last Saturday there is no
doubt that they are able to make it in-:
teresting for any eleven in this section. ;
The game will be called promptly at
: ::5i rain or shine, and as the field
has been entirely roped off by the man
agement every pla.v can be seen from
the grandstand. With the pn seut ma
terial at hand there is no reason why .
Brattleboro should not be represented
by the strongest team ever organized
here. Nearly all of the games will
be played in Brattleboro and it is
hoped that every date between now,
and Thanksgiving will be filled. Ar
rangements are now being made with .
Shelburne Falls and the Keene High'
school teams anil strong efforts are be
ing made to secure a college team for
the Thanksgiving day attraction.

Ben Hendricks and his company in
the Swedish dialect play "Ole Olson"
appeared in the Auditorium Tuesday
evening and furnished amusement for
a rather small audience. Mr. Hen
dricks portrays an exceedingly comical
character in the title role and his dia
lect is funny if not exactly true to life.
Ole Olson is a big Swedish youth who
has "bane in dis kontry feni mont and
sax wake" and is supposed by every
one to be slow witted and green. He
was smart enough however to fathom
all sorts of schemes which are brewing
around h:m, and bobs up serenely just
at the proper moment to prevent evil
from triumphing over good. Mr. Hen-
Miss Amelia Bingham's production
of "The Climbers," which, by reason
of its perfection in acting, mounting
and costuming established her in the
front rank of America's theatrical pro
ducers, will be seen in this city at the
Auditorium Wednesday evening. In
this play Clvde Fitch has given some
very effective pictures of Xew York so
ciety with well drawn types of Xew
Y'ork reonle. Throughout the drama
there and Lyman May has contracted
to do the cutting and hauling.
The famous G!)th regiment band of
Xew York with its splendid array of
soloists will appear in Brattleboro

the best known musical organizations
in the country and its concert will af
ford the music lovers of Brattleboro a
genuine treat.

I C. S. Winchester's horse gave a

The fifth annual harvest day of the
Brattleboro Home for Aged and Disa
bled w as held Wednesday and as usual
was a gratifying success. About 7o
people registered in the guest book
during the day. and in response to the
appeal of the directors a large quanti
ty of vegetables, canned fruits and
jellies were given to the home in addi
tion to alum! in cash. The affair
was entirely informal, iiut all the more
pleasing on this account. Light re
freshments were server! during the
day. The thanks of the committee
are extended to everyone who heljied
to make the event so successful.
Charles F. Dennison, who died
suddenly of apoplexy at his home in
Springfield. Mass.. Tuesday evening,
was a native of Green River and lived
' in Brattleboro for several years. He
was employed for some time in Crane's
machine shop and afterwards worked
: in a sewing machine factory. Mr.
Denison was a man of much mechani
cal ability and invented a number of
mechanical appliances. Most of his
' life was spent in Springfield where he
i held a position in the office of the Mas
sachusetts Mutual insurance company.
, He is survived by a widow. The body
will be brought to Brattleboro this
morning and the burial will take place
iu the family lot in Prospect Hill cem
etery. In a letter to the Bellows Falls
; Times Principal Downing of the High
; school there, has the following to say
regarding the failure of the Bellows
Falls team to put in an appearance
here a week ago Saturday: "I wish
to bring before the mind of the editor
and the public the emphatic denial of
Manager Brosnahan's failure to cancel
the Brattleboro game. There are two
reliable witnesses to the fact that on
the Tuesday preceding the date sched
uled for the Brattleboro game. Mr.
Brosnahan mailed a letter to the Brat
tleboro manager canceling the game.
Certainly from Tuesday to Saturday
ought to give ar.y live manager time
enough to circulate a notice of such im
portance in a town the size of Brattle
boro. " Mr. Brosnahan in all proba
bility mailed the letter but it never
reached its destination.

in her native town but since her mar
riage to Mr. Barrett in lsol she has
lived in Brattleboro. Besides her hus
band she is survived by two children.
Mrs. Herbert F. Brooss of this town
and Charles D. Barrett of Springfield,
Mass. Mrs. Barrett was one of those
who founded the Brattleboro L'niver
