P. Cnrpenter and Carpenter companies, George E. Crowell and M. Austia, jr., to recover the alleged value of his stock in the E. P. Carpenter company and a balance which he claims is due on book ac counts. Tho suit is returnable nt the September term of court. Mr, Huntley's Dog Wasn't Mad. A puppy belonging to C. A. Huntley of Bridge street was shot by ono of the police officers yesterday morning after it had cut up such queer nntics that many people had become fright ened, thinking that the third mad dog had come to the city. It is probable, however, that the dog was afflicted with tits which at any other time would have passed almost unnoticed by any one except the owner. Mr. Huntley is proprietor of the Meadow City laundry and had the dog there with him in the morning. When the dog began to act strangely the employes of the laundry were somewhat alarmed, but when the ...iiieil tu miss awnv. matters seemed about to renssmne their normal tone. But the dog was taken again and again with increasing frequency and finally Mr. Huntley decided to take tho dog to his home and started with him on a leash. His convulsions on the street attracted the attention of many people and by the time Mr. Huntley had reached his home and secured the dog there, the neighborhood was pretty thoroughly aroused. Some one tele phoned to Chief Gilbert, who at once dispatched Officer John Ruddy to the scene. When Mr. Roddy reached the house he found that there was consid erable excitement in the nir and the dog was surely out of sorts. I'rged by tho people who stood nbout Mr. Ruddy decided to kill the dog, hut Mr. Hunt lev wished him to wait until the arrival of VetetnnriiiD Harry M. Martin, whem he had summoned. . Mr. Ruddy was willing that the dog should have a chance for his life and so consented after communicating with headquar ters. Dr. Martin examined the dog and pronounced his trouble due to fits from which he said the animal would not be likelv to ever recover, although he might live for quite a while. This con vinced Mr. Huntley that it would be best to have the animal killed at once since in that condition he would be a source of alarm to everyone. Officer Ruddy promptly changed the dog into produce for the soap factory and every one seemed satisfied. Dr. J. II. Roberts, agent for the state in such matters, has decided that it will not be necessary to send the head nwav for analysis, for it is practically certain that the diseased dog did not bite any others. North ampton correspondence in Springfield Republican, Aug. 11. May Buy a Summer Home Here. Meredith Nicholson may buy a sum mer home in Brattleboro. The authoi of The House of a Thousand Candles, The Main Chance and other well-known novels was in town last Friday for the purpose of looking at Xaulahka, not knowing that the place formerly occu pied bv Rudyard Kipling had been sold. Mr. Nicholson was disappointed when he found on investigation that Xaulahka was no longer in the market but he was so impressed with the beau ty of the country about Brattleboro tiict he intends to come here "again in the fall to look for another place. In conversation with V. O. Jones of the firm of Clapp & Jones Mr. Nicholson said that his family was now at Ken nebunkport. The author himself will sail Aug. 28 for London on a brief business trip, returning the latter part of September. In October, he told Mr. Jones, ho intends to come to Brattle boro again and at that time will visit all the surrounding country. Mr. Nicholson was loud in praise of the scenery hereabouts and thought Brat tleboro an ideal spot for a summer home. . Mr. Nicholson is a good-looking young man somewhat over 30 years old. His home is in Indianapolis only a short distance from that of Booth Tarkington.

Thv great question is shall a man receive the full product of his labor which, of course, can only be answered in tho affirmative. Mr. Dunbar then went nn to prove by re ferring to the statistics of the various corporations that the workingman is receiving less than one-fourth the full value of his actual earnings. It is not just that capital should do so much less actual work and receive so much more in proportion. Labor should take the production of everything into its own hands and enjoy tho fruits of its toil. The state of affairs in New Zealand was used as an illustration. In former times the land there was in the hands of a few large holders. Labor had no status. But few men fould obtain em plovment. Finally the people took tlie land into their hands by the right of eminent domain. All coal mines, rail roads, etc., were run under public own ership. Xow New Zealand is the rich est country per capita of any civilized country. Crime is reduced to a mini mum. ' There is not a pauper in the land. All these good conditions were brought about by public control. Will the workhigman keep on year after ........

Emerson & Son EVERYTHING FOR HOUSEKEEPING 2 and 4 Main Street Brattleboro, Vt. Story of Carolina. The storv of Carolina, the new -American play which has its first stage presentation at the auditorium Satur day, Aug. 2", deals with the dwellers in that most picturesque section of our country which is included in tlie South ern range of the Appalachian ehnin. These mountains, lying to the west of the Caroliaas, have, until recently, bttcn little known to the outside world, although such authors as James Lane Allen, Charles Egbert Cra.Woek (Miss Murfree), and others, have done much in recent years to make the reading public familiar with the locality in which the scenes are laid It is amid these scenes that the author found the characters in Carolina. These charac ters are no creations of a plnywright's brain; thev are real because they are drawn from life and because their counterparts arc living today. Caro lina Tolliver, the child of nature, lov ing and tender; Jack Durrell, the man of native simplicity; Mam Tolliver, Strange Accident Near Bennington. Lewis Prntt, 23, a grinder employed in the International Paper company's milU at Cadyville, met with a shocking and pecmiar death Friday. On account of low water the machines he wis running were stopped, and he was set to work painting. About 2 o'clock he was directed to scrape the stock tank The last seen of him he was working on the side of the tank. A little later the pulp or stock failed to run from the pipes, and upon investigation a hat was found floating in the tank. The foreman of the mill opened the water valve and let the stock out of the tank, but this failed to reveal the bodv. Leading from this tank is pipe about 18 inches in diameter at the month and which contracts to 12 inches. The pipe was cut and the man't body was found 40 feet from the mouth.
