The 50th annual fair of the women of the first Univorsulist church was held in Festival hall last evening, tak ing the form of a flower fete. As usual the scheme of decoration was original and well carried out and of course there was a largo attendance and everybody had an excellent time. Supper was served at prettily decorated tames from 5.30 until 8 o'clock, Leitsinger'g orchestra furnishing music meanwhile From 8 to 9 o'clock the orchestra gave a concert, whii'h was much enjoyed, and from then until 12 o 'clock dancing was in order. The decorations were very effective. Streamers of vellow and white hung rom the central chandelier to the sides of the hall, and the stage was trans formed into an arbor of evergreen and wisteria blossoms. Near one corner of the stage was the lemonade booth, de corated with yellow chrysanthemums and in charge of Miss Addie Bailey, Miss May Spear and Miss Alta Bishop. Near the other corner Misses Carolyn Clark, Edith Farr, Elizabeth Tuthill and Annie Lamb sold flowers and pot ted plants from a booth trimmed with red crepe paper, Gertrude Plummer and Edith Staples acting as flower girls. The gipsy camp consisted of two wigwams in tho midst of evergreen trees and sur rounded by a fence of birch twigs, was in charge of Mrs. G. E. Warner and Mrs. H. J. Clark, who were dressed in gvpsv costume and told fortunes by means of palmistry. Misses Ruth Brown, Marion and Alice Allen sold baskets within the camp. Ices were served by Mrs. Charles Staples, Miss Stella Stickney nnd Miss Marion Knight and Mrs. W. H. St. Gormaine at a table decorated with smilax and poppies. Various colored morning glories on a background of white composed the de corations of the fancy articles booth which was in charge of Mrs. A. W. Rockwell, Mrs. F. L. Burnett, Mrs. F. R. Vaughnn, and Mrs. Fred Crcssy. Candy was Bold at a booth decorated with white chrysanthemums over a background of green by Mrs. A. E. Ho bart, Miss Minnie A. Scott and Miss Annie Richardson. Pink roses were used in the decoration of the booth for useful articles which were purveyed by Mrs. Jerome Amidon, Mrs. J. A. Lind sey, Mrs. Abbott Stone and Miss May Edwards. Tho grab took the form of an immense kettlo suspended on a tri pod between two evergreen trees, and the destinies of those who took a chance within the depths of the pot were in the hands of Miss Ada Mason and Miss S. E. Griswold. All of the various committees, at the head of which was Mrs. H. F. Brooks, shared in the success of the event. FOUND DEAD IN BED. Osmer C. Clark a Victim of Heart Trouble at West Brattleboro Home. Osmer Charles Clark, 34, a brother of Fred C. Clark, the grocer, was found dead in bed yesterday morning at his home in West Brattleboro. He was apparently in good health when he re tired Wednesday night but as he had complained of not being able to sleep the night before his mother, Mrs. Em ma Clark, did not call him yesterday morning until about 10 o'clock. When she did call no one responded but Mr. Clark 's little daughter, Nella, who was in bed with her father. Mrs. Clark then went upstairs and found her son dead with his little daughter, uncon scious of the tragedy, beside him. The neighbors were at once notified and meflicftl aid summoned. It was appar ent, however, that Mr. Clark had been dead for several hours and the cause of his death was undoubtedly heart dis ease. Mr. Clark was born in Wardsboro and had lived in that town the greater part of his life. A few years ago he went to Readsboro where he worked in a drug store for a short time, re moving to West Brattleboro last spring. He was a trained nurse by profession, being a graduate of the Westboro, Mass., training school, and only re cently returned from Hinsdale, N. H., where he had been employed for a considerable time. Besides his daugh ter, a child of about three years, and 1 his mother Mr. Clark leaves two broth ers, Fred C. Clark of this town and William Clark of Wardsboro and three sisters, Mrs. Addie Howe of Windham, Mrs. Herbert Franklin of Townshend and Mrs. Etta Davis of Hinsdale. His wife, who was Miss Nella Smith of Boston, died in June, 1902. A prayer will be held at the house in West Brattleboro tomorrow afternoon and funeral services will take place in the Wardsboro Methodist church Sunday. Mr. Clark was a member of the Reads boro lodge of Odd Fellows. WINDHAM COUNTY hctQUMBK. BKATTLEBORO, VT., NEED OF FEWER LAWS. Mass of Poor One Now In Forca to Breed Disrespect. Editor Reformer: I have road with interest your editorial on tho political advertising luw passed by our 1902 leg islature, also the article from the Springfield Republican on the cbucub or primary law passod by the laBt legisla ture. I urn surprisod that those laws and others passed by the laBt legisla ture and other on the statute books of Vermont have not received more com ment in tho nowspnpers of tho stnte. To sny that thoy aro "drastic," "dis criminating," "unjust," "unconstitu tional" nnd "foolish" is stnting it mildly. To say that they aro a disgrace to any state would bo better. We often see indignant protests by peoplo of Vermont against disfranchis ing tho negro by unjust election laws in tho southern states, but why should we, when wo have our prosent laws in regard to voters? As a crowning effort of the l!it legislature wo have tho law labeled No. 2 in regnrd to caucuses. A voter must fill out r certificate on tho 1st of April with his inventory, stating how ho intends to vote in September, or bo disfranchised in caucus. Also Act. No. 70 of tho Inst legislature say ing that a voter must present a receipt showing that his taxes nro paid, or be disfranchised. We shall expect that at our next ses sion our aspiring law-makers will com w.l im tn on tn the noils laden with ad ditional certificate nnd receipts; for instance, a doctor's certificate that we - nl.ln tn he out. and receipts show ing that our Btore bills have boon paid, and we may liavo to present our bank Kiutlii fnr inflnpetion. Is it constitu tional or in spirit with our supposedly f-no inntitiitinna to tnck on a disfran chisement clause to the collection of taxes! The law nlready gave all the power necessary for the collection of taxes by allowing tho property of any person to be sold at, public auction to satisfy any claim xor tuxes. Another Inw or tno same nature Act 'No. 147, session of 1904, which savs that a man wno nuns ciu;, watches, groceries, oranges, bananas, or dry goods, etc., when he goes afoot shall pav $15 fine and when he goes horseback $30 fine. Why do we not have persons who sell groceries and Arv cmerta or conduct nnv other kind of legitimate business, and do not go afoot or drive in a team, pay a ucviuw iu i state for the privilege of buying and selling! According to tho constitution, a per- son is supposed to unvu a m-v-u..... ..... religious belief, he Bhould not be obliged by law to accept any estab lished religious sect; yet Act No. 134, session 1904. ignores this right of every citizen. There are many honest citi zens of this state who keep tsnturany instead of Sunday and they have as good right to this day as any other and thorn is no leeitimate reason why they should be restricted in their actions over Sunday. The tendency of this mass or poor laws is to breed disrespect for all law. What we need is fewer laws and just laws and laws that can be enforced. II. A. Howe. Newfnne, Jan. 22, 19013. MR. OALVIN EVOLVES A SCHEME Thinks Village Can Get Adequate Wa ter System for Less Than $200,000. In tho discussion of this matter, says tho Brattleboro correspondent of the Springfield Republican in reference to the village water problem, the best sug gestion apparently yet from any source is that of "Mayor" Galvm. It com bines suggestions which curiously enough none of tho engineers who have been over the matter have combined. It nlso meets the one great defect of all previous plans or combinations, in that nono of them, except by uniting the waters of the north and Bouth branches of Broad brook and Marlboro South pond, would afford a surely suffi cient supply for a population of over 12,000. Mr. 'Calvin's plan is to take the water of Wieltopoe brook, sometimes called Halladuy brook, which would af ford an ample supply for the present at a cost of $126,922, which, according to engineer's figures, and which with a street main distributing system costing about $75,000, would give a system complete for about $200,000. This source of supply would have a water shed four-fifths as large as any of the others under consideration, except Broad brook and its combinations, a static and working pressure as large as any of them, with less houses on its watershed than any of tho others. By itself its onlv lack in comparison with the others is' that the area of its reser voir would be onlv 8 1-2 icres, and its reservoir capacity only 22,000,000 gal lons. This would be sufficient, however, for any present or near future needs. Its great and apparently decisive mer it is that it can be reinforced by sup plies from South pond, North pond, and the north branch of the Whetstone brook whenever necessary. The analy sis of water by the state board of health Bhowed this from Wickopco Hill brook, next to South pond, the best of any. Except for possible claims on Green river, this proposition of Mr. Gnlvin's would eliminate the question of water damages entirely, an element which figures $43,000 in the Wickopee Hill scheme alone, and $44,000 in the South Whetstone scheme, which En gineer Brainard recommended, and a large amount in any of the other schemes, because adding the water of either the Marlboro ponds would give mill owners more water than they have now. Death of Mrs. Jane A. Abbott. Jane Augusta Chippcn, 77, widow of David A. Abbott, died Monday morn ing at her home on Canal street after an illness of several months.

Modern Women for February, in its denartment devoted to interesting mod ern women, contains a portrait of Mrs. Harriett Brnsor Pratt with tho follow ing story of her career: Mme." Stella Brnzsti, otherwise Mrs. E. R. Pratt, who hns lately opened a school of opera in Chicago, is one of the foremost contraltos in America, and though a young woman nt the height of her power, sho has behind her a brilliant record of successes on the operatic stage. It was in London dnr- j ing a season at the Covcnt Garden the atre not many years since, that she was generally mentioned as the successor of Annie Louise Cnry. She had made her debut as Siebcl in Faust and was instantly recognized as one of the best the London stage had ever seen. She made a name for herself as Ortrud in Lohengrin, a role in which her dra matic power had fine opportunity. She made her debut in this opera two sea sons previous in Jiice, where during both winters of her engagement she was tho talk of the Riviera season. But all the while she was pursuing serious study, the result of which wns a large repertoire in French and Ital ian. Her rich voice grew in power and flexibility, and she became a better ac tress as well as a greater singer. Ana yet the triumphs which she won appear never to have spoiled her, tor she relin quished them all to become a vocal teacher in America. This she did out of consideration for her husband who had a distaste for her stage life. She had been a poor girl, though an amaz ingly pretty and talented one, when she became the wife of E. R. Pratt, a young but wealthy business man of Brattleboro, Vt., their native town. He was ambitious for the beautiful singer and took her to Europe for the best in struction it afforded, and thus it was that Harriett Brasor became the Stella Brazzi of the music world, it is about five years now since she left the stage and settled as a teacher in Buffalo. This city, however, she has now desert ed for the larger center where both east and west will feel the magic of her trained vocal powers, and her charming personality. Miss K. B. Manning spent Sunday with her sister in Springfield. Mass. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Eels of Green field and Mrs. Geonre Roberts of New York were In town Wednesday to at tend the funeral of Mrs. Jane Abbott.
