PUTNAM, General Agent. The Wilson-Clement Case Burglary at Northfiold The Washington County Crimes Vermont'a Industrial School for Negroes. A hearing in the mystery surround ing the death of Ephralm Root at Went Rochester last week was held Friday and Saturday. Some 25 witnesses were called and the testimony pointed strongly to Joseph Bean as the mur derer. Ho was held without ball for trial in Windsor coifnty court and was placed in jail at Woodstock, the charge being murder in the wilful, deliberate and premeditated killing of Ephralm O. Root. Bean is said to be very down east and broken In spirits. Many of the witnesses testified to the former good conduct of Bean and many Rochester people believe him in nocent. Frank Hubbard at whose house Bean was found after the mur der, testified that Bean entered the house at 8 o'clock and that he was not aware of his having left it after that time. Against this evidence Deputy Sheriff Tlnkham testified that meas urements taken of the tracks found leading from the Hubbard house to the Green saw-mill around the scene of the crime at the Green barn and re turning to the Hubbard place, and the measurements made of Bean's shoes were the same. A son of Mr. Green tes tified to having seen Bean peering through the window of the Green house while the family and Root, the murdered man, were at supper. Elmer Martell of Rochester also testified to having been offered $50 by Bean if he would kill Root. Other testimony showed that Bean was intensely Jeal ous of Root on account or tne atten tions of the latter to Mrs. John Green, wife of the saw-mill owner, and for merly wife of Bean. Bean had pre viously been a partner with Green in the business, but had sold out and left town. During his absence Mrs. Bean married Mr. Green, believing her for mer husband dead. Bean finally turned up very much alive, but consented to abandon his wife to Green, although he frequently referred to her as "our wife." Of late Bean has been living at the home of Frank Hubbard, about four miles from the saw-mill owned by Mr. Green, where Root was employed. On the night of the murder Bean called on Mrs. Green and had an interview with her, when, it Is alleged, he complained of the attentions Root was paying her. Mr. Green was in Canada on business and there was no one around but his two sons. When Bean was found in bed at Hubbard's, after the murder, he was much excited and told conflicting stories of his whereabouts the previous night. He was covered with perspira tion and the bed clothes were saturated with it. Dr. W. Seward Webb was badly shnken up In a wreck at Orange, Tex., Friday morning. .

Farnsworth of Bridge street, Merrick, returned Thursduy from Wardsboro, Vt, with a bag which he has substantial grounds for claiming to be the record for this season's coon hunting. With his friend F. B. Kid dor of Wardsboro, he hunted for three nights after waiting five nights for the weather to clour, and the results of their expeditions were 15 coons aver aging 15 pounds each, the largest tip ping the scales at 22 pounds. Be sides those they brought home, three were treed in trees he hunters were unable to climb, and several more were driven into ledges. Mr. Farnsworth believes that if their fatigue had rjtit prevented a fourth night of hunting, they would have Increased their bag by at least three more. The coons are all big fat fellows, with heavy pelts, and eight of them are displayed front of King Bros' store In Merrick, Including the 22-pound one. Mr. Furnsworth is not afraid to chal lenge any. one in this section to go ahead of this record. This trip was the sixth annual hunt which Mr. Farnsworth has taken with his friend Kidder, and they have always been well rewarded. This, however, Is their best season; the second best was last year, with 14 coons in five nights, Their unusual success Mr. Farnsworth attributes largely to the excellence of the dogs. Mr. Kidder has had con slderable success in breeding hunters, and the two who accompanied the men on this hunt are two of the strongest and most acute dogs he has ever bred. They are Ranger, owned by Mr. Farns worth, and Rattler, owned by Mr. Kid der, and are valued at $100 each. One feat of Rattler's, and one remarkable for any coon dog to perform, was his carrying a 19-pound coon he had cap tured. He had treed the coon which Jumped and ran a half mile down steep mountain through thick brush, pursued by the dog. After a while the men heard the dog breaking his way up the steep Incline, and soon he reached them with his bulky prey hanging In his Jaws. This Is the first time Mr. Farnsworth has ever known a coon dog to carry. One night Ranger started on the track of a coon a little after midnight, and did not return un til 5.30, coming In on his back track One coon he ran four miles before tree ing him. Coons are sometimes savage fight ers when at bay, but Mr. Farnsworth had one narrow escape from an ac cident which happened without design on the part of the coon. A coon had been treed and Mr. Kidder climbed to secure him. Calling down that he could see nothing of the animal, he began to shake the limbs. At last finding a limb that seemed heavier than the others, he gave it a vigorous shaking and sure enough down fell the coon. Mr. Farnsworth was sitting under the tree with the lantern, and the 22-pound coon, with a heavy Jar, landed within four feet of him. The weapons the men used were 32-calIbre Smith & Wesson revolvers, with eight Inch barrels. The results of each night were: On the 12th, four coons; the 13th, seven, and the 14, four.

Taylor Whiskies tssd ij eritioal jnigH, The Wilson-Clement Slander Case. The trial of the suit of Samuel D. Wilson of Washington against Hon. P. W. Clement of Rutland for alleged slander has been in progress at Rut land since Thursday. The suit is to re cover $50,000. Plaintiff claims that while in Vermont to secure evidence of violation of the prohibitory law, he killed a man in self defence and that Mr. Clement referred to him as a "murderer" In campaign speeches In 1902. Mr. Clement was called as a wit ness and would not admit that he had called Wilson a murderer although he acknowledged that he had referred in his speeches to the shooting of Gosher and had said that Wilson had been indicted for manslaughter, when, un der Vermont procedure, he should have been Indicted for murder and the ques tion of degree of crime left to the Jury. Miss Sadie Smith, stenographer for Mr. Clement on his campaign tour, was placed under arrest the first day of the trial, for not answering properly, but afterwards testified that she could not swear to the exact words used In Mr. Clement's speeches. Several wit nesses were examined In regard to the circumstances attending the shooting and death of Gosher. Arguments In the case began Tuesday afternoon. Sir Charles Rivers Wilson Did not Ap pear as Expected. Life is full of disappointments and the people of the West River valley ran up ngalnst one of them on Wed nesday. It was given out that a special would run over the narrow gauge on that day, carrying a party of railroad officials Including the I president of the Grand Trunk, Sir Chas. Rivers Wilson, K. G. C. B.. of London, Hengland. Great preparations were made at Brattleboro and along the line to re ceive the distinguished visitor. The best coach on the line was taken In hand and thoroughly cleaned, for the first time in three years. All Tues day night men were kept busy killing microbes, scouring, scrubbing and varnishing. A new carpet was laid In the aisle and the whole shebang made spink and spank as Marvin Howard's golden pheasant, every depot on the line was scrubbed, yards cleaned up and buttons sewed on the section men's breeches. In short It was made fitting to receive the distinguished Sir Charles of London, Hengland. Alasfor human hopes and aspirations, the K. G. C. B. didn't come. No inkling of this was had here until the train arrived. Now Londonderryltes don't mean to get left when It comes to hospitality nnd the entertaining of celebrities. So when the special pulled in at 8.30 the mayor and many promi nent citizens were on the platform ready to receive Sir Charles and escort him to the Riverside where a sumptu ous lunch would be served and an in formal reception held. But O It was a sad sight when it was discovered that It was only Hays and Fitzy and a few understrappers of the Canuck breed the reception committee looked like thirty cents. The mayor took to the woods and hasn't been seen since Prominent citizens' disappeared as if the earth had swallowed them and the Canuck officials were left to shift for themselves. Whether these felt the Indignity or not the Sifter is un able to say but it is certain that they made a stop of only 30 minutes and went out as if the devil had kicked them In end. The next time Sir Charles comes let us know, please. Londonderry Sifter. KIPLING'8 NEW BALLADS. "The Poems of the Boer War from Five Nations." , Twenty-five new poems from the pen of Rudynrd Kipling were published Oct. 1. They appear In a volume en titled "The Five Nations," published simultaneously In New York and Lon don, the American edition coming from the presses of Doubleday, Page & Co. The poet gained Inspiration for most of his new work in the South African war, and several of the poems take rank with the best service songs that he sang in India In bygone years. He Is generous In praise of the Boer and not afraid to ridicule the errors of his own countrymen. One of the best of the poems is tribute to the Boer under the title of Diet," written in the same spirit that produced "Fuzzy Wuzzy." Here are two stanzas from It: I do not love my empire's foes, Nor cull 'em angels; still, What Is the sense of 'atln' those 'Oom you are paid to kill? So, barrln' all that foreign lot Which only Joined for spite, Myself, I'd Just as soon as not Respect the man I fight. Ah there. Plet! 'Is trousers to 'a knees, 'Is coat-tails lyln' level In the bullet-sprinkled breeze; 'E does not lose 'is rifle and 'e does not lose 'is seat I've known a lot o' people ride a dam' sight worse than Plet! No more I'll hear 'is rifle crack Along the block'ouse fence The beggar's on the peaceful tack, Regardless of expense. For countln' what 'e eats an' draws. An' gifts an' loans as well, Es gettin' 'alf the earth, because 'E didn't give us 'ell! Ah there, Plet! with your brand new English plough, Tour gratis tents an' cattle, an' your most ungrateful frow. You've made the British taxpayer rebuild your country-seat I've known some pet battalions charge a dam' sight less than Plet! (Copyright, 1903,.by Rudyard Kipling.) The colonials who served In South Africa are praised In "The Parting of the Columns." Two verses from It fol low: There Isn't much we 'aven't shared since Kruger cut an' run. The same old work, the same old skoff, the same old dust and sun; The same old chance that laid us out. or winked an' let us through; The same old life, the same old death. Good-by good luck to you! Our blood 'as truly mixed with yours all down the Red Cross train. We've bit the same thermometer In Bloemlngtypholdtein. We've 'ad the same old temp'rature the same relapses, too, The same old saw-backed fever-chart. Good-by good luck to you! (Copyright, 1903. by Rudyard Kipling.) The Dirge of Dead Sisters" is a stately, solemn tribute to the women who nursed the sick and dying. In South Africa. Some stanzas from the poem follow: Who recalls the twilight and the ranged tents in order (Violet peaks uplifted through the crystal evening air)? And the clink of the iron tea cups and the piteous, noble laughter, And the faces of the Sisters with the dust upon their hair? the Ml mi a Is i-9 Hod Carrier will lighten you labors and bright en your home. Tasteful i design, it is un surpassed ii efficiency. Mates? Fuller & Warren C TBOT. M.T. SOLD BY JOHN CALV MtATTLKBORO, r r r IN.

The pleasantest, most convenient and the only scientific method for the treatment and cure of catarrh Is Hyo mei. Simply put twenty drops of Hy omei in the inhaler that comes with every package and then breathe It for a few minutes four times a day. It seems remarkable that so simple a way of treating cixtarrh will effect a cure, but the most Important discov eries of science have always been the simplest. By breathing Hyomei in this way every particle of air that en ters the air passages of the throat and head and goes Into the lungs is charg ed with a healing balsam that kills the germs and bacilli of catarrh and soothes and allays all Irritation. The first day's use of Hyomei will show a decided improvement and In a short time there will be no further trouble from catarrh. Its action is rapid and lasting. You take no risk in buying Hyomei. A complete outfit costs $1.00, and if after using you can say that it has not helped you George E. Greene will re turn your money. What other treat ment for catarrh is sold under a guar antee Ilk this? (Now and not hereafter, while breath is in our nostrils. Now and not hereafter, ere the meaner years go by Let us now remember many honorable women, Such as bade us turn again when we were like to die.) Till the pain was merciful and stunned us into silence When each nerve cried out on God that made the misused clay; When the body triumphed and the last poor shame departed -These abode our agonies and wiped the sweat away.) Who recalls the noontide and the fu nerals through" the market (Blanket-hidden bodies, flagless, fol lowed by the flies)? And the footsore firing party, and the dust and stencn and stainless, ; And the faces of the Sisters and the glory in thpir eyes? I (Copyright, 1903, by Rudyard Kipling.) The Englishman chastened by the war is described In "The Return," part of which follows: Peace Is declared, an' I return To 'Ackneystadt, but not the same: Things 'ave transpired which made me learn The size and meanln' of the game. I did no more than others did. I don't know where the chance be gan; I started as a average kid, I finished as a thinkin' man. If England was what England seems, An' not the England of our dreams. But only putty, brass an' paint, 'Ow quick we'd drop 'er! But she ain't! Before my gappin' mouth could speak I 'eard it in my comrade's tone; I saw it on my neighbor's cheek Before I felt it flush my own. An' last it come to me not pride, Nor yet conceit, but on the 'ole (If such a term may be applied) The making's of a bloomin' soul. (Copyright, 1903, by Rudyard Kipling.) The married man Is playfully de scribed in a piece called "The Married Man." A sample stanza follows: The bachelor 'e fights for one As Joyful as can be; But the married man don't call It fun. Because "e fights for three For 'im and 'er and it (An' two an' one makes three) 'E wants to finish 'is little bit. An' 'e wants to go 'ome to ls tea. (Copyright, 1903, by Rudyard Kipling.) South Africa idealized as a wonder ful woman is the theme of one of the most Interesting poems In the volume. The following stanzr.a are quoted from the poem: Lived a woman wonderful, ! (May the Lord amend her!) Neither simple, kind nor true, But her Pagan beauty drew, Christian gentlemen a few Hotly to attend her. Christian gentlemen, a few From Berwick unto Dover: For she was South Africa, And she was South Africa, She was South Africa, -Africa all over!
