On the Brattleboro end of the bridge Foreman Kittredge is tearing out the old abut ment, heavy stones being dumped into the river by the aid of a derrick. The middle stone pier, which It was sup posed would have to be removed, to gether with foundation or the west abutment, will not be touched until the bridge Is completed, us the main floor of the bridge will span the pier by several inches.

This com pany will improve the property and will erect a factory which will employ bout 1000 hands. Several wealthy- men connected with this company were In town this week looking for a location and found jus' what they wanted in the M. C. Meagher Co. prop erty. The sudden awakening of the Cen- ral Vermont railroad to the absolute needs of the Narrow Gauge road, by its removal of a large number of ties nd employing an increased number of men for the betterment of the track, is surprising as It is right eous. The reason or this quick re sponse to the demands made by the directors of the Narrow Gauge is not pparent, but at all events we feel uite sure that not only Its directors but the people along the line are very grateful for anything that will conduce to the safety and comfort of the trav- llng public. Mrs. George W. Hooker and cous- n. Miss .Elizabeth Frost, wno nave been spending a fortnight at Watch Htl.l were among the pasengers on the steamboat "The Ella," which runs be tween Watch Hill and Iew London, Friday last when the steamer boiler exploded and the boat was unable to proceed to New London. The pas sengers and the boat were towed Into New London. AH . the passengers ar- vried there safely, although several hours late. It was a very narrow escape; the boat. had been condemned as unsafe, and but for the fact that the explosion found an upward and not a downward, vent the story ould have been more tragic. Speaking of the history of the old toll bridge demolished last week, the Republican says: The old bridge. In connection with its predecessors, had an interesting history, and was made to pay profitable returns on Its cost from tolls, collected for a long period of years by the late John L. Putnam. There was a Joint ownership between the towns of Brattleboro and Hins dale, N. H., in the possession of the bridge, which was one of the first to span the Connecticut. The late Jacob Estey, together with officials of the town of Hinsdale, made a successful attempt several years ago to free the bridge, resulting as expected, In in creased travel across it. For some time the bridge had been out of re pair, and finally became dangerous from its severe racking during the spring floods. The bridge was de stroyed by the flood of 1869, which drove a wall of water from the net stone across the Connecticut, taking out the east abutment. This was the second time the bridge had been de stroyed within a period of 10 years. HINSDALE. A large numbr from here are camp Ing at Narthfleld and others drive to and from the meetings.

The Hinsdale base ball team defeat ed a team from Pine Grove Springs at Riverside park Saturday afternoon. The boys put in some excellent work and made the game Interesting. The score was five to 0. The ferry near the Adam Roeder farm is now in operation, but many prefer to go to Brattleboro by the way of the Worden ferry and Vernon, as the road to the new crossing is very steep on both sides of the river. The basket picnic held by the Con gregational Sunday school at G. M. Wright's Saturday afternoon was well attended by both old and young and all had a very merry time. Ice cream was served for all, which fact was highly appreciated by the little ones. A cow owned by O. S. Higgins, was badly mutilated by some unknown person Sunday. The animal was slashed with a knife in many places and may not recover from the in juries. It Is hoped that the guilty party will be apprehended and pun ished as anypne who would do such a cowardly ana inhuman act certainly ought to be.
