" On Thursday, Jan. 8. John W. Vo gel's Big Miostrels will be seen at the Audit rium. The company is half a hundred strong and boasts of a roster second to none. Manager Vogel's rep utation for being a standard bearer is enough to satisfy anyone that the per formance will be in keeping with me heralding. The O'Brien troupe of ac robats, which is said to be 'one of the most sensational novelties of the Cen tury, will be one of the features of the performance. State's Attorney Schwenk and a corps of deputy sheriffs went to West IJummerston last Wednesday 'or tne purpose of raiding some places which were supposed to be selling intoxicat ing liquors. lhe raids were mane out they were fruitless.

A petition is beinc circulated in Brattleboro asking that the Vermont senators do what they can toward the retainment in the immigration bill of the clause which prevents anyone un able to read from coming into this country. The clause is being opposed by many of the steamship companies. The Reformer publishes this week a table of figures which are furnished by the Vermont anti-salooD league. showing the difference in the number of arrests in certain towns under pro hibition and license. Although the Reformer does not believe in placinr such fragmentary evidence before the public, the figures are worth attention.

How much truth there is in the story cannot be found out but everyone who is in any way con nected with the Central Vermont would be delighted to learn that it was true. In spite of the many promises which were made when the Grand Trunk took possession of the system its condition now is but little better than before. Mr. Parker, of the firm of Parker &. Xourse, Worcester, Mass., the archi tects who designed the Souto & Co. plant, was in town Tuesday to see how the work on the plxit is progressing. In spite of the bad weather of the past few weeks the work is going on rapidly the frame of one building being par tially up. Holden & Martin, contract ors, find it exceedingly difficult to pro cure foundation stone and this has de layed them somewhat. Another thing which retards progress is the inability to get lumber shipped from points on the narrow gauge.

Douglas of Worcester, Mass., who spent a part of last week with his family in town, is one of several Wor cester men who are interested in a mining company which has proved suc cessful. It was formed last spring un der the name of the Goldeo Link Min iog& Trading Co., ita principal object being to carry on fur trading in north ern Alaska. The company sent a rep resentative to Nome last May and he recently returned after spending the summer in that mining region. The success of the venture' has been unus ual for aside from the quantity of val uable skins secured the company bought several extremely valuable claims in the Nome region at a low fig ure and its representative brought bome the most valuable quantity of gold brought out of the miniDg region this season. The company has just paid a good dividend and its holdings have increased 500 per cent in value. Mr. Douglas brought to Brattleboro about $500 worth of Duggets and dust. The largest nugget was somewhat larg er than an English walnut and con tained about $100 worth of gold. by a pole. He was unconscious for some time but is uow improving at the ; home of his father in Dummerston. i There was a hearing before Judge ; Wheeler Tuesday asking for the opening of the case of two young I Chinamen who are claimed to have i beeq ordered deported as the result of ! perjured evidence.

All are cordially invited to hear him on this occasion. Coal continues to be at a premium in Brattleboro. Small lots of different sizes have been received by both deal ers the past week but. the outlook is not verv encouraging. The holiday celebrations at the different mines have cut down the output at the mines about one-half and add to the uncer slier, clerk. The object of the club as stated in the by laws is good fellow ship and the advancement of technical knowledge in the art preservative. It meets every other week at the home of its members and is open to all em ployes and employers of the printing and allied trades.

Yauvey is selling pea coal at $10. He has this week bought two cars of chestnut coal for which he will be obliged to get $14. He expects to receive this shipment next week. The universal commendation of the lecture in the Auditorium Wednesday evening by Senator J. P. Dolliver of Iowa is proof that the committee in charge of the Y. M. C. A. course of en tertainments made no mistake in en gaging Senator Dolliver as one of the attractions. The speaker took for his subject. "A Poor Man's Government and a Poor Boy's Country," and it is perhaps unnecessary to state that that country is the United States. Senator Dolliver has traveled much and has had much experience in investigating the various problems and conditions that exist, and it is reasonable to be lieve that he is right when be says that the country never offered more or bet ter opportunities to a poor boy than it offers to-day. It is necessary that the boy cultivate the elements of good cit izenship, apply himself to his task, master its details, and the rest is com paratively easy. As illustrating the truth of his remarks he reviewed the careers of William McKinley and oth-' era whose success was the reward of hard work along the lines indicated. This is but one of the many good points in the senator's address. It was really one of the very best entertainments of the season, and the applause of the au dience was frequent, long and loud. block Sunday at 11 a. m. Sunday school at 12 m.
