At the auction Bale Tuesday, the property of the Stowell Manufacturing; company of Putney was sold to George T. Aplln of that place for $19,000. The plant and stock are valued at $35,000. The buHinexs is said to have been bought for a company of local citizens several years ago, and 20 citizens of Putney signed a note with the com pany for $20,000, which was borrowed at the Vermont National bank In Brattleboro to keep the factory run ning. The factory afterwards went Into the hands of receivers, who bor rowed additional money to put the factory In shape to be bought by the National Novelty corporation. The factory was rejected by the corpora tion, and the court ordered It to be sold at auction. The money received from the sale is about enough to pay the Indebtedness created by the re ceivers so that the signers of the $20,000 note will have to pay the note. NEW BOARD WAS ELECTED.

Much Election eering and Transferring of 8tock. Reformer's Predictions Verified. Almost every stockholder of the Brattleboro Street Railway company was quite astonished last week at the news given In this paper that all the directors and officers of the company would refuse to accept re-election at the annual meeting of the corporation to be held the following Monday even' Ing. There were some expressions of surprise that such news should he printed, and one man pronounced the prediction "a tissue of lies. However, in the light of subsequent events, it only remains for the Re former to say that Its prediction was fulfilled to the letter. At the annual meeting of the company, held last Monday evening, the old board having given notice that re-election would be absolutely declined, an entirely new board was elected. Just as was stated In these columns a week ago. The new board of directors is composed of the following well known men: C. V. Robbins. Frank L. Hunt, M. A. Coolidge, H. J. Clark, C. K. Jones. Interest In the proceedings of the meeting had been considerably arout' His Honor Adds that He Would Build New One Himself if He Could One Man Told the Court that He Almost Died There in 24 Hours.

George C. Wilson, general secretary of the Brattleboro Y. M. C. A. ha tendered his resignation to the board tired of It," said Judge Newton of the of directors, and has accepted a slm- town court to a Reformer man Wednesday evening. "I'm sick of tulklng about It. I won't say another thing. I told you last night that I wouldn't put my cat in that place. Ask Mr. Hall, the policeman. He knows all about it. So do the select men. They have heard these com' plaints. Why, a year or two ago there was a man confined there who told me that he almost died in the 24 hours be tween his arrest, Imprisonment and trial. I won't say another word about it. Everybody knows all about it. Certainly it is no place in which to hold a man, innocent or guilty, 'till he is tried. The lock-up and its con ditions are known here in this com munity just as well as the houses of the leading residents of the town. I've said enough; I've scolded enough The selectmen know all about it. It I could build a new one I would." A professional man of this town, lawyer of recognized ability and use- ed, and the attendance of 50 persons fulness to the community, said yester- WHY NOT bring that order for Job Printing to the Reformer Office and if it isn't done to please ypu, you needn't take it.

A party of Boston capitalists have recently been In Readsboro looking for a site Just below that village for a dam across the Deerfield river for electrical power with which to supply different towns nnd villages, besides affording a large storage for the man ufacture of paper and pulp wood. Howe's pond, several hundred feet above Readsboro, is also to be util ized, the water being conveyed in flumes to the river reservoir. There are a number of schemes afoot in the valley behind which are prominent lumbermen and manufacturers whose plans are developing, and which, If carried out as positively asserted, will unfold several new an Important In dustries. Ball Located by X-Ray. N. A. Blouen of H.nsdale who was accidentally shot with a revolver at camp in Pisgan on the night of Aug. 1, was taken to Keene Friday to have the X-ray used to locate the bullet. Blouen was in a sitting posi tion when shot. The ball from a 88- calibre revolver struck him on the inside of his left knee and took an up ward course. A physician probed for the ball, but was unable to locate it He had complained of a great deal of pain since the shooting and had other symptoms Indicating that the bullet was causing trouble, although it was thought It would become incased in the flesh nnd do no other particular harm. The X-ray showed that the bullet was in the inner aspect of the thigh, about 10 inches above the wound of entrance. was in excess of the record of any pre vious meeting. President H. E. Bond presided and Secretary A. E. Thurber took the record of the meet ing. Of the company's 550 shares 416 were represented. There had been a lively skirmish for three days to get In every share, transfers and sales of the stock being recorded as late as 5 o'clock Monday afternoon. At the opening of the meeting Secretary Thurber read his minutes of meetings of the year and gave a de tailed statement of the road's receipts month by month. The report of the treasurer, as printed here a week ago, was accepted. There was considera ble discussion of the question whether some transfers of stock made Monday afternoon, but not recorded on the company's books, should be accepted In the voting, but they were finally ac cepted. During the meeting D. Cowles had considerable to say about the Reformer and its article on the road's affairs. He wished to know who Inspired the article, where the Reformer obtained its information, why It was printed on the eve of the annual meeting and a few other things intimating that the Reformer's article was furnished by the old board, as a lever for the re-election of the old board. He was never more mistaken in his life. The election of officers followed. Printed ballots were distributed bear ing the names of the members of the new board, proving that somebody had been hustling for three days, but in spite of that the members of the old board received a very complimentary vote, an evident desire existing to re tain their good services. The ballot stood: Total number of shares voted, 416; necessary for a choice, 209; for the old board, 179; for the new board. 237; and the new board was elected, as stated above. "Just what the Reformer said." somebody remark ed, and the meeting, after re-electing John Galvin auditor, adjourned. The newly elected directors have not yet held their meeting for organ ization. It will probably not be held until next week sometime. They are expected at their first meeting to elect a president, vice president sec retary, treasurer and superintendent.

A meeting was held in the chape! of the Central church, last Monday evening, to consider and discuss the subject of the protection of animals from cruelty. . Mrs. Jennie B. Pow ers, whose noble and devoted work as agent of the local society is known of all. read a paper in which she presented an array of facts enough to move every humane heart. She wan especially vigorous in de nouncing the wholesale slaughter of birds for the purpose of furnishing adornments for women's hats. Her lecture, however, comprised the whole subject and the deacon who worked his horses with gaUed shoulders did not escape her atten tion. The lecture was listened to with earnest attention and le't a deep impression oil the mind of ev ery hearer. Mrs. Powers' paper was followed by remarks, readings and recitations by Mrs. Sawyer, Mrs. DeWitt, Miss Stewart and others. , The recitation by little Miss Clark was specially well (tone. Before the formal proceedings be gan photographs were passed from hand to hand around the assemblage. which bore unmistakable evidence of the need of humane work. They were actual pictures from life, showing horses and other animals In all stages of emaciation and suffering. Our New Minister" Will be Given August 29. On Monday next, August 17, the stage of the Auditorium will awaken from its summer lethargy and for the next two weeks be the scene of busy activity. The company that for the past two years has been presenting that great est of all modern plays, Denman Thompson and George W. Ryer's "Our New Minister," assembles here on Monday next, and begins its annual two weeks rehearsals, opening Its own season, and that of the Auditorium, on Saturday, August 29. All the old favorites that were seen in the play when it was last given here are still with the company, so Curt Ho'ten "on the fence." Darius Startle, the country detective. Sjivanus Bartlett, the store keeper, "Skeezlcks." the Bowery lad, Obediah Blurton, the skin flint farm er, will be in the hands of their orig inal creators. Ernest Hastings, one of America's best leading men, will be the Thaddeus Strong, the new min ister, and Grace Housan will be the Nance Ransom. The entire production will be given here intact, every stitch newly painted this summer, and is the same that will be used during the forthcoming run of the play in New York at Klaw ani Erlanger's American, theatre. day morning, when asked about the condition of the lock-up: "I can hardly say all I think and know about the lock-up. It is ' a dirty, nasty stinking place; it is no place in which a person who breathes should be put, Its condition Is damnable. Brattleboro Is so very generous In its provisions for other things that this lock-up problem is a great thorn In my side. The condemnation of it In your paper Is excellent work. You cannot put it too strong. But you must keep up the fight for if you don't the whole thing will be forgotten in a week or two. Push it right along until you awaken the people to the state of affairs right in the middle of the town." Dr. H. L. Waterman, health officer, says that in view of the many com plaints as to the condition of the lock' up he will make a personal examina tion of the premises. Before he makes his visit the powers that be will give things a generous scouring, If they can take this advance tip. Bailiff Bacon says that he remem bers a Fair day, a couple of years ago when 14 various persons were con fined In the damp, ill-syielling lock up. His duties called mm to tne place and he admits that be nearly dropped dead when he entered, so foul was the air, so polluted with filth, He contends that the board of bailiffs has nothing to do with it; that It is up to the electmen. One of the best known men in town. occupying a prominent position as head of various Brattleboro industries, sends us. voluntarily, the following note: "Tour article in last week's issue concerning the condition of our lock' up was as true as It was timely, and I am sure that all good people feel very grateful to you for the interest taken In the matter. It has long been known, by many citizens at least that the condition of the lock-up was such as to make It unfit for either man or beast, and no time should be lost In thoroughly cleansing the same, If not making an entire change in the loca' tion. The time has long since gone by when even criminals are placed in so foul and inhuman a spot as the lock-up is at the present time." But in this issue it is curious to find so many prominent men in the community who don't care, who say Oh. let it alone." or "What is it to me; It is amazing to tninit oi tne suffering that has been produced by that miserable den of darkness and badness, right in the center of the town, beneath the post office, where the ringing of the church bells on Sunday is so distinctly heard. Is It true, in this beautiful town, that such suffering must pass unno ticed? liar position in Kalamazoo, Mich., at a salary considerably increased and more commensurate with his ability. It is a pity that such a good man, so full of the true and earnest spirit In his work, should be lured from this place, where his services, while not unappreciated, have not been fully re warded. Secretary WTiIson is of the right stuff, one of the sort of men who un derstand young men, a man who can coax by gentleness and tact where others fail in persuasion. Although he has served here but four years or so his record is quite out of the ordinary. When he came here from Keene, and a previous trial of his manhood at Concord, he found a debt of $2500. This he has wiped out In his brief term of service, and meanwhile he has done a thousand helpful things. He found a membership of 150, and has made It 250. He has made himself very useful in the community inter ests and has never failed at critical points. It is too bad that he is to leave us, for he is a citizen of value. Mr. Wilson will go on a fortnight's vacation, leaving Monday, Joining his wife and young son. Then the fam ily will return to thir home on Oak street and two weeks later they will take their departure for Michigan, where Mr. Wilson will assume his new duties Sept. 15. Good luck! PENALTY OF OLD AGE. City Horses, Worn Out, Go to the Country to Die. Apropos of a recent visit to Boston by Mrs. Powers, agent of the Humane society, "Our Four-Footed Friends," the official organ of the league, has this to say of the end of good horses who have faithfully served their own ers until they have finally become worn out: There is a firm in Boston who have the finest stables in town and all the most approved conditions for the care of their horses. The horses belong ing to this firm are well fed, carefully driven, groomed by expert stable men, rested sa day out of each week, and then sold as soon as they show signs of age to farmers up in the country. An agent actively engaged in humane work in New Hampshire and in Ver mont has recently visited this city. and all who think it is a humane act to sell or give old horses to farmer- . should have a chance to hear what she has to say about this matter. They are taken from warm city stables to old country barns, where the wind sports through every crack, often left standing all night in narrow stalls, unblanketed, fed on coarse hay with scarcely a taste of grain, and one might as well say that it is humane to take an old person from a snug city home, well heated, where every com fort had been enjoyed, and put him or her into a farmhouse to live In a cold room and have the poorest food and no care. Most of us would rather die than to suffer such a change in old ' age. THE NEW DAM. Mr. Reed Up Here of Washington, With Ideas. W. F. Reed of Washington, a civil engineer of the United States service Here is a Note from an Inmate. William Bailey wishes to thank the people of Brattleboro for their kind ness on Sunday, Aug. i, during nis sojourn In the lock-up. He did not have to go looking for bugs, the bugs came right to him. He says the cooler of Brattleboro is one of the filthiest places he has ever seen. In fact Judge Newton made the remark he would not let his cat sleep there. After a party of 10 had visited him from Saturday night till Sunday night, his sole companions were bugs of all descriptions, who made it very interesting. "Bill" says all who wish to join this order can do so. The initiation fee is only $25.14. He has Joined it and his dues were paid in full. and a man who knows what he is talk ing about, has been in town this week and he Is very much Interested in the plan of damming the Connecticut, giv ing the town some water power and, incidentally, doubling the population of the place. Mr. Reed is on a visit to his family at Park Hill, N. H. He is well known and he belongs to the United States service. He knows all about the prob lems of electrical engineering, dam building, bridge construction and all that. He has had much to do with the construction of the navy yard plant and is up to date in his work. He is a personal friend of Col. G. H. Bond of this town with whom he hits spent a day or two in investigat ing problems of damming the river and making Brattleboro grow. He has full faith in the project and will con tinue his investigations and report to cepitalists in Washington. There seems to be every reason for the guess that something will soon be done. Y. M. C.

It will be good news to many who have been anxious but unable to at tend the famous Let-Go-Sale of E. J. Fenton & Co., to learn that this pro gressive firm have decided to continue the big sale of Clothing, Furnishings, Hats, Trunks, Suit Cases, etc., all next week. Numerous inquiries have been made as to whether or not the sale would run after the monthly pay day which occurs the 15th, so the firms decision to continue the sale next week will give many a last opportunity of securing reliable merchandise at a great saving as the dollar Is very pow erful at the Let-Go-Sale; in fact it al most does the work of two.
