The Wilson-Clement Case Burglary at
Northfiold The Washington County
Crimes Vermont'a Industrial School
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
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

burglars, clothing, dress suit cases, and
valises being stolen from the Colbuln

Merrick Man's Successful Hunt at
C, D. 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
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.

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
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.

A Few Minute Use of Hyomei Four
Timet a Day Cures Catarrh.
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
Such as bade us turn again when we

The Englishman chastened by the
war is described In "The Return," part
of which follows:

I did no more than others did.

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;

Before I felt it flush my own.
