WINDHAM COUNTY REFORMER, BRATTLEBORO, VT., FRIDAY, FEBRUAIll 2, 190G.
3 3ELL0WS FALLS TRIMMED JkTHLETICS WIN THIRD GAME OF CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. V Srowd the Largest In Local History of Basketball Final Score 42 to 17 In Favor of Brattleboro HagRorty's Bomarkaulo Exhibition. In a little the wurincHt game of bas V'tbnll that Iihh I'vir taken place In fcratUi'tmro anil before the lurxest and Burnt enthiiHluHile crowd thut Iihh ever Kitiii-HHed a context in this -town the Athletics Tuesday evening defeated Bellows Fulls by a score of 42 to 17 tmd thereby made themselves a factor n the race for the Vermont elate Championship, lie t ween S00 and 900 people, Including a delegation of near y 200 from up .the valley, crowded Dto Festivul hall to see the text of Itipremacy. and bedlam reltfned su Hreme from the first to the tinal wills tle, Stimulated by two victories out of jhree and confident of making It three but of rive, the Bellows Kails uggrega- lion Htarted at a pace which made them look like "the real cheese." It took only a fow moments, however, for them to find out they wore up against a 4-11-44 combination, and the Inter nals when the paper-town rooters could i legitimately exercise their lungs were 5 decidedly scarce. Brattleboro fans, on i the other hand, found something to ex I ult about In nearly every play, and when it Is stated that this exultntion was accomplished by means of cow bells and tin horns the result is not difficult to I inn if I lie. 4 lioth teams were strengthened for 'i the contest; Bellows Falls by MeGrall J of Dartmouth and Corry of Eusthnmn- ton, Mass.. and Brattleboro by "Flo' , Haggerty of Holyoke. While Haggertv's f. work proved a factor In winning the 4 name for Urattleboro It Is doubtful if i llellows Falls was materially aided by Its importations. Hoth MeGrall and J Corry are first class players but their i apparent unfamiliarlty with Hellows 5 Falls's system of passing seemed to 'i spoil the effect of the team work. i Time and again one or the other of it these players would pass the ball dl- i rectly to a Urattleboro man and thus give the home team a grand opportun ity to score, and very few of these op portunities were allowed to pass unim proved. On the whole It Is a safe con clusion that Hellows Falls would have done as well if not better by using its regular forwards. Frost and Horse. But this statement should not give the impression that Bellows Falls did not I put up a fine exhibition. The tea Pluycd u wonderfully fast game, coy t-i-liig closely ami shooting with great accuracy. It lost becuuso Urattleboro was tust enough better to win. The score at the end of the first half was 22 to 4 In favor of the Athletic and the Bellows Falls rooters had ver little to suy. For a few minutes In the first of the second period the visitor appeared to take a brace as did tl spirits of their loyal supporters, but the rally was only temporary and the relapse that followed allowed Brattle bom to .tump to its original lead. Haggcrty certainly "had 'em all fad ed when It came to accuracy I shooting and skill In floor tactics, "Dunny" Thompson, who attempted to cover the Holyoke ex-lenguer in the first half, was made to look like an ice-bound frog and It. Bothwell ap peared to little bettor advantage In the second period. Hageerty simply cut circles about his opponents and his ex hlbltion will no doubt be remembered for many a day by those who came from the town where his fame had not reached. Stafford s task was to cov or McUrall of Dartmouth and he did this so well thut the husky Hanover rlun fulled to make a single successful connection with the basket. Davey easily had the better of H. Bothwell In the center and was second to Hag gcrty In scoring. He ran the team with good judgment and was always on hand with the goods at critical times. Long had his hands full with Corry but he managed to keep within covering a, 'ance of that player most or the tlm.4 ind repeatedly broke up Bellows Falls's team work. Kills, as usual, got Into the game with every ounce of strength he possessed and he led Bothwell nnd Thompson a merry chase. The summary: Brattleboro. Bellows Falls. Haggerty, r. f. I. g..

Next Tuesday the Athletics will play against the Turners Falls Father Mathews. The receipts from Tuesday's game must have enhanced greatly the finan cial condition of the Athletics, and the crowd tonight ought to be nearly as large. The boys merit all the money they get. Comparatively lltllo money was wa gered, on Tuesday evening's game, the odds being about even. The Bellows Falls delegation supported Its team nobly but no large wads were flashed In the faces of the Brattleboro sup porters. The Vermont Academy basketball team challenges any team In Vermont for the supremacy of tlio state, accord lug to an Item in the St. Albans Mcs- seugur. Vermont Academy has thus far played six games and won all, scor ing 323 points to its opponents 81. Bel lows Fulls was beaten by V. A. a short time ago. The fifth and deciding contest be tween Brattleboro and Bellows - Falls will take place In Keene, N. H.. al though the date has not been settled yet. Managers Riley and Thompson expect to complete arrangements for this game next week. A large follow ing of rooters will no doubt accompany the Athletics to Keene, and Bellows Falls can be depended upon to send down a good representation. ORGANIZATION EFFECTED. T. M. 0. A. Notes. Another interesting program will be given in the association rooms at 4 clock Sunduy afternoon. E. T. Math- ison is the speaker and the usual mu- leal program will be rendorod by the association orchestra. Fourteen vounjr men enjoyed the sup- er and discussion of the Life Problem tub Wednesday evening at the associa ion rooms. This club meets every Wed' nesilay at 6:30, and after the supper an our is spent with a real live life prob- cm. Membership in the club is open to any young man. A large number of young men met ev. A. J. Mitchell in the association rooms last Sunday afternoon. His ad viee was most thoroughly appreciated nd everyone present resolved to live more congenial nnd helpful life. A teeiiil word of praise ib given the asso ciation orchestra for its splendid work. Tlio board of directors, with the offi rs and chairmen of all the commit eg, will enioy a lunch in the associa' on rooms Monday evening at 6:30, af ter which a business meeting will be held. Several very important matters will be considered, and a full attend nee is desired. flo.4 rnrn mm btraigm Taircs on Patent Medicines Some three years ago a number of ed by the various druggists constituting prominent retail druggists realizing the company. that a big change was to be made in the proprietary medicine business, that the public demanded to know what the in gredients were of the preparations they were advertising, and that a general reform was about to take place in pro prietary medicine manufacturing and ad vertising, formed a co-operative com pany to meet the public's demand. This company was called The United Drug Company, of which the undersigned is one of the thousand members. Our object was, first, to manufacture a line of prescriptions such as we had tried out in our stores and found to give the very best of results, and second, by owning our own co-operative manufac turing company we would be able to know the exact formula of every prepar ation we were selling, thus enabling us to give to the public the very best rem edies we could find at actual manufac turing cost, plus a single retail profit. This enabled The United Drug Com pany to escape the heavy charges for advertising and other expenses such as have to be paid by proprietary remedies. What was most important, it insures safety and satisfaction to our customers, because we druggists know just what we are selling. A committee of experts was ap pointed who spent a long time in testing From these, about two hundred were selected as being the best rente dies known to medical science for the cure, each of its particular ailment The exclusive rights to these remedies were then transferred to The United Drug Company, which has since manu factured them in its superbly equipped laboratories in Boston under the now famous name of" The Rexall Remedies." Note then, first of all, these facts : 1st. " Rexall " refers, not to one rem edy but to about two hundred each for some one particular purpose. Nobody knows better than The United Drug Company druggists the absurdity of the "cure-all." 2d. Each " Rexall " Remedy is a test ed and proved success, selected for its conspicuous merit from many of its class. All had established rep utations through their continued use by physicians before they became members of the " Rexall " family. 3rd. " Rexall " Remedies are sold at low prices because they are free from heavy manufacturing charges, job bing profits, and the heavy expense of being advertised separately, as formerly. The United Drug Company, which manufactures the Rexall Remedies, has aireaay scorea the greatest success Windham County Fish and Game Pro toctive Association Now In Exintonce, The Winilliaiii County Fish and (iiimo I'rotective association, which may come to bo known hereabouts as "the ho ciely with the long name," was organ isied at a meeting in the Brooks house parlors Saturday nfternoou when tlio following ollieers were chosen: l'resl dent, George W. l'ieree of Brattleboro vice presidents, i'r. h, If. Campbell of Bellows Kails and Orrin H, Knell of Wilmington: secretary, Robert C. Bacon of Urattleboro; treasurer, Dr. flcorge Y, Burlier of Urattleboro; executive com mittee, James F. Hooker of Brattleboro, M. 11. liny of Bellows Falls and Frank K. Barber of Brattleboro; auditing committee, John K. fliilo of Guilford, Marvin Howard of Londonderry and Arthur 1. Williams of Bellows Fails. A membership committee of 23 from the various towns in the county will be ap pointed by the president. The object of the association, as stated In the con stitution, is "the preservation and prop agation of fish and gnme in Windham county; to procure nnd enforce suitnblo Inws for the protection and preservation of food fishes, game, song and insectiv orous birds; the introduction of new species and varieties of fish, game and useful birds; to disseminate informa tion relating thereto, and to procure the revision and codification of the laws on the subject when found necessary." Tho meeting was called to order at 3 o clock in the Brooks House parlors by Cieorgo W. Pierce, about 40 members from different towns in tho county be ing present. Mr. I'ierce was electod temporary chairman nnd K. C. Bacon temporary secretary. James F. Hooker then moved that a committee be ap pointed by the chair to prepare a list of officers, and Mr. I'ierce at once named a committee with Mr. Hooker as its chair man. After retiring for a short time the committee brought in the list given above, which was elected unanimously. Motion was then made for the appoint ment of a committee to prepare a con stitution and by-laws, II.' 1). Kyder of Bellows Falls being named as its chair man. After some discussion this com mittee reported the constitution and by laws substantially as printed in The Reformer last week, slight changes being made in several of the articles. After the different articles had been read by Mr. Kyder and discussed by various members, tnev were again read by the secretary and adopted by a un animous vote. Tho remainder of the session was de voted to an informal discussion of the dub's purpose and plans. Dr. Barber emphasized the need of keeping on good terms with the farmers and landown ers of the county and thought it impor tant thnt everv member do his share m xplaining the true object of tho or ganization. Dr. t amphell was in favor of having a banquet in the near future with possibly some well-known speaker from outside the state. It seemed to be the sentiment of the majority present thnt the club's funds could be used to better advantage along other lines, and it was finally voted to leave the matter in the hands of the executive board, which consists of the officers and the executive committee.

The holding of the Universalist fair, savs the locnl correspondent of the Springfield llcpublican, recalls some in tiTCHting Universalis! history. Wind ham county may almost be said to be the cradle of American Universalis!!!. Hosea Hallou preached his second ser mon in Urattleboro in 1701; he was then n his 21st year. Among those living n Urattleboro at the tune, who prob' ably listened to tho founder of Amen an Universalisin on this occasion, were Col. Daniel Stewart, Levi Goodcnongli and lieu lien Stearns. Some historians say the doctrine of the final restitution of nil things was believed here ns early as liSO. While Hosea Ballou preached some of his enrliest sermons in Windsor count v, vet the scene of the greatest effectiveness of his preaching was here in indlmm county, nnd especially the southern towns of the county, lfosea Hallou, 2d, was a native of Guil ford, and he preached some of his first sermons in Brattleboro. It is believed that he preached at the residence of Levi (ioouenough in his ltb year, in 1814. He certainly preached there, the historian says, not later than 1S16-1S17. Between tins date and 1H29 there was occasional Universalist preaching in school-houses or privnte residences by Hov. John Brooks, Key. I nomas ,1. Saw yer. Key. William A. Balcn, Key. rtus- sell Streeter anil Key. Isaiah Boynton. In December, 1H20, Rev. Matthew' Hale Smith, then only a boy of IS, was set tled over a society in the west village. His time was divided between that church and a church in Guilford. Mr. Smilh continued his pastorate in Brat tleboro until 1S32, which was a suc cessful one so far as indicated by out ward results. It is reported that he was popular, and his congregations al wavs large. He was succeeded by Rev. Aurin Bug- bee, during whose ministry occurred one of those episodes the like of which could hardly take place in this genera tion in which sectarian spirit is cer tainly less fierce than that of the last generation. The old church in West Urattleboro was owned principally by Universalists. Thcv asked for the pnvi lege of using it occasionally on Sunday, but their request was refused. There upon they went to church early Sunday morning, .November 2:4, IMA, forced open the door and took possession of the house. Meantime two clergymen, Kevs. F. Lonng of Hinsdale, Js. H., and War ren Skinner of I'roctorsville, had been engaged to conduct the religious ser vices during the day. Mr. Lonng be gan his service at 9 o clock in the morn ing, nnd continued it until 10.30, when Mr. Skinner took the pulpit for another service. At this time the other party with their members, one of them the principal of tho academy, came in a body to the church, entered tho yes tibnle and demanded admittance to the auditorium, the doors of which were all closed, long seats filled with men being nlnced auainst them. They requested the Universalists in the vestibule to call ' out their committeefor consultation; but they answered thnt they should not in terrupt the services, which had then be gun. Next the Congregationalists pro posed to overpower the Universalists in the entry, rush into the churcn and ex pel Mr. Skinner by force from the pul pit and take possession themselves, They were advised that by this course they would all render themselves name to indictment and heavy fines as dis turbers of a religious meeting. The academy bell was then rung, and they departed m a body to that place and held their meeting, leaving the Uni versalists in undisputed possession of the church for the rest of the day. As a result of this contest, after some months the Universalists sold their in terest in the church to the other own ers, and in 1834 built a brick church in the west village. The new church was dedicated Janunry 31, 1835, and Rev. Charles Woodhouse assumed the pastor ate, which he continued two or three years. Sample Examined by State Laboratory Shows Contamination. Dr. Henry Tucker, health officer, re ceived Wednesday from the state lab oratory a report on a sample of water which he took from the Frost street pond of the Crystal Springs Ice com pany Jan. IS. According to the analysis the water in this pond is contaminated, the report containing the following items of interest Turbidity, distinct. Sediment, slight. Free ammonia, .044 per cent. Chlorine, 4.9 per cent. Nitrogen ns nitrates, 3 per cent. Nitrogen as nitrites, .007 per cent. The unusual amount of chlorine and nitrates shown bv this report is thought by Dr. Tucker to be due to decayed or ganic matter which may have entered the pond bv surface drainnge. The samplo was taken under favorable con ditions, the ground surrounding the pond being frozen and covered with snow at the time. In view of the fact that the ice crop his year promises to be unusually light ho Crystal Springs company will prob ably be obligad to use ice from the Frost Kind in order to supply its customers next summer. For this reason Dr. Tucker advises tho public to cool its drinking water by setting it on ice in stead of putting ice in the water. In this way no danger can come from any contamination that may be in the product. $20,000 Fire at Windsor. The Fay building, one of the two largest In Windsor village, was com pletely gutted by fire at an early hour Saturday. Jan. 27. only the brick walls being left standing. The loss will ap proximate 120,000 and Is nearly covered by Insurance. The cause of the fire Is unknown. The building was owned by C. T. Kay of Holyoke. Mass. The lower floor was occupied by the hard ware store of Stone. Payson & Blake, the furniture store of Cabot Bros, and the barber shop of Hayes Jones. The upper floor was occupied bv the tene ment of Mr. Jones and Edgar Ami den's billiard and pool room. Stone. Payson & Blake saved a part of the contents of the store In a badly dam aged condition. This firm carried an insurance of 15,500. Almost every thing In Cabot Bros.' store was de stroyed. The Insurance on the stock and fixtures was $7,000. Hayes Jones saved most of his belongings. Every thing on the upper floor was destroyed. The building, which probably will be rebuilt, was Insured for $9,000.

Hunter who is one of the regular contributors to The New Eng land Farmer, not long ago said In the columns of that paper: "Feeding fresh cut bone to fowls, to Induce abundant laying, has proved a decid edly profitable thing. The bones are rich In animal matter, and contain lime of which the egg shells are made, and hens fed on fresh cut bone will lay a larger number of eggs than If fed no bone. Not only will they lay a larger number of eggs, but the eggs will be stronger-bodied, will be better eggs, and If Incubated will have better and stronger chicks." C. S. Page of Hyde Park.
