Boston Herald' Wonderful Tale of Detective Work With a Woman ai Heroine Chased Her Prisoner Through Four States. After following the trail of George M. Bruce of Shirley through four states and finally finding him In Chesterfield, N. H., Mrs. E. J. McCloskey of 16 Un ion Turk rtostun. had the man hand cuffed to her and brought him all the way from New Hampshire to uoston. They arrived here at 4 o'clock Satur day afternoon. After giving him a good meal Mrs. McCloskey took Bruce tn tt,a ri.,tnntion ntutinn. She later rode with him in a patrol wagon to the Jail, where she bade mm "good nignt. Mr. Bruce had been arrested on a charge of perjury. Mrs. McCloskey had furnished ball to the extent of $2000. Bruce It is said was advised by sev eral people to disappear. He did so. Mrs. McCloskey wished to sa'e her $2000 and so turned detective. She was eminently successful. She worked with the acumen of a Sherlock Holmes and followed a trail of boarding houses, mileage books and Angora goats with the tenacity of an Old Can Collier hero. Bruce went away Just before Hooker day last June. He had relatives in Connecticut. Mrs.. McCloskey wrote him a letter, sending It to his mother In New London. Brute answered the letter, but first sent it to his mother for her to remail It from New London. He dated the letter from Schenectady, and said that he was going to Califor nia. Mrs. McCloskey then went to Con necticut and had a talk with his rela tives. She learned that Bruce had a brother Fred In Massachusetts. She returned to Boston and started out on a hunt for the brother. She went to Athol, to Shirley, to Fitchburg and then to Leominster, where she found Fred Bruce. ' Fred was told that there was an Im portant paper that needed the signa ture of his brother. It must be dorte before a Justice of the peace. Would he take the paper to his brother, get It signed and Immediately mall it to Mrs. McCloskey? Yes, certainly. He came to Boston. Mrs. McCloskey gave him a Boston & Maine mileage book. This book, however, was good only within the limits of Massachusetts. Bruce did not know that. When he went to change to $o across the bound ary a clue would be furnished. This Is why she gave him a book good only In this state. Still further precau tions were taken. A. private detective was waiting to shadow Bruce. He fol lowed his man from the office and lost him before he got out of the building. In due time the paper was returned. It showed that 1t had been sworn to before a Justice of the peace In Hins dale, N. H. This did not furnish suf ficient evidence, however. The two brothers might have travelled some distance to get there. Where did Fred Bruce brnnch off to go north? Mis. McClosky went to the North station to see if she could learn anything from the conductors of the trains on which he would have been likely to travel. Yes, one conductor remembered a man who had a Massachusetts mileage book. She followed on the trail of that mnn all the way from Boston to Fitz william, only to find that he was not the man she was looking for. Bruce had a sweetheart In Athol, Mrs. McCloskey got word that the young lady Intended to buy a boarding house. If she could establish an ac quaintance with the young lady, she might get trace of the man she wanted. The boarding house was In Kcene. Mrs. McClo'key became a prospective purchaser of boarding houses in Keene. The young lady was already there, with a house that she expected to take. Mrs. McCloskey then became a dress maker who wanted a room In the boarding house. Bruce'a sweetheart had to return to Athol for a week. The woman detective saw disaster stare her in the face. A whole week! and her property was already adver tised to be sold In order to satisfy the bail bond. She started out on a new clew.

Love's Birthday, like a great, white, tranquil star, Throws, through the old year's gloom, its light afar. Christmas again I How shall we make it gay ? That is the query of the world alway. No deed of valor, that bold heart of flame To compass, cunning brain and hand employ; No jewel thought, or unguessed truth revsaled These are not things to waken Christmas joy.

She took a team and a constable and went to Hinsdale, where the paper had been signed. She went up through lumber camps. All - to no purpose. She sent the team back by the constable, and went by train to Keene. She found that Bruce's sweetheart had not re turned. It was no use to wait there, and she had business In Boston that must bo attended to; so she returned. In the meantime she had heard that Bruce was working on a fancy farm where the proprietor kept Angora goats. Now Angora goats are scarce. She had until Dec. 21 to produce Bruce or forfeit the ball. Dec, 15 she started out looking for a farm where they kept Angora goats. First she went to North Adams. There she learned that thSre was a farm somewhere up in Vermont where they had Angora goats. She came back to Hoosac Tunnel, then up to Keadsboro, Vt From there she went to Davis Bridge. She was getting nearer Angora goats all the time.

Mrs. McCloskey felt that at last she was on the right track. They went to the doctor's office. In the mean time the people at his house had telephoned him and he knew what to expect.

They thought he was going to warn Bruce, but such was not the fact He was after a man to take his place. It turned out that it would have been superfluous for any one to have warned Bruce. When they arrived at the farm he was somewhat surprised, but greet ed them pleasantly and said: "T nm --aV ,rt crn With VOU." n at nnn. Mrs. McCloskey thought that it was best to be on the safe side.

BRIDGE FORMALLY ACCEPTED. Commissioners Met Representatives of Company Saturday. The new steel bridge across the Con necticut river was accepted formally Saturday by the Brattleboro and Hins dale commissioners who met represen tatives of the United Construction Co ot Albany, N. Y., and made the final arrangements for releasing the con cern from Its bond. Those present at the conference were J. H. Holt, A. H. KjUredge. James R. Watt and W. R. Marden representing the United Con struction Co., E. Stebbins, F. A. Davis, and James O'Brien, the Hinsdale com missioners, W. H. Vinton, James L. Martin and George W. Pierce, the Brat tleboro representatives, and H. F. Lis com of Hinsdale who has aided the commissioners greatly through his thorough knowledge of bridge build ing. The party took dinner at the Brooks House and went through the formalities of acceptance afterward. The cost of the new bridge is about $43,000 which is about $3000 In excess of the combined appropriations of the towns of Brattleboro and Hinsdale. The additional expense was due to the cost of moving the old toll house and the increased amount of filling and stone work which was found to be necessary. The bridge company's or iginal contract was for $37,000 but the additional stone work found to be necessary amounted to nearly $5,000. Brattleboro's share of the Increased expense will be in round numbers be tween $2000 and $3000 which the com missioners will borrow to pay the bridge company and ask the town to appropriate at the next town meeting. There will be no opposition to this In all probability for the reason that the commissioners have succeeded in get ting the towns Joined by one of the most substantial bridges in New Eng land.

GARRETTO FOUND GUILTY MANSLAUGHTER THE VERDICT IN BARRE MURDER CASE. Dr. Harkness Pleads Guilty of Forgery Boom for C. J. Bell for Governor1 Likely Woman to Be Tried in Bsn nington for Attempted Murder. The Jury n the case of state vs. Al exander Garretto, charged with the murder of El' Corti at Barre October 8, brought in a verdict of manslaughter at Montpellcr Wednesday afternoon. The Jury was charged Wednesday morning by Judge Stafford, who con cluded at 9:30 o'clock. The charge oc cupied 25 minutes in its delivery and was clear cut and admirably woroeo. He said a verdict might be found of manslaughter, murder in the second degree, or murder In the first degree. Half an hour after the verdict Judge Stafford sentenced Garretto to not less than 10 years nor more than 12 years at Windsor. In imposing the sentence court said there were certain exten uating circumstances connected with the case that would cause It to be len ient, still it believed such a penalty should be Inflicted that It would be a lesson to the prisoner. Garretto is the Italian socialist who fired the fatal bullet that killed Ell Corti, an anar- chist sympathizer, in the Italian riot at the socialist hall in Barre Oct 3. rn Waahlneton county court Wed- ftemoon Eugene Davis and Neil, Kriapp of Northfleld pleaded ri,ntr to bnro-larv In Northfleld and to breakmg Jai!.
