Mr. Vinton, in an informal, conversa tional manner, talked for a few min utes on the causes which led to the funning of Brattleboro lodge, aud the place it had filled in local Masonic his tory. Sturtine with 1(5 members, only nine of whom are now living, it has grown to a membership of over 200. Jlr.

I valuable past master s jewel. Air. Vinton was visibly affected and sur prised and his words of thanks were plainly sincere. Jlro'ther E.' II. Miller of Dummerston then sang a baritone solo which called out a hearty encore. Past Master Ferris R. Vaughan gave a brief, but extremely fitting historical sketch, a summary of which follows: .

Read of Bellows Falls, granted a dispensation for a lodge in Brattleboro to be called Brattleboro lodge. The number, 102, was supplied later when the charter was granted.

Leonard, George K. fircene, A. C. Davenport, Henry D. Hol- t iMvid A. Abbott, A. V. Cox, A. L. ('lark, C. R. Stevens, Edward Clark nnd W. H. Taft. The grand master ap pointed William K.

An illustrated Viavi lecture on mat ters pertaining to the wellbeing of women will be given Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 3:45 p. m., at the Congregational chapel bv Mrs. A. M. AYiggin of the Viavi company. All ladies are cordially invited to attend. Vermont Phoenix, Oct. 19. A fake concern, called the Viavi com pany, which preys upon impressionable women, has organized an elaborate "lecture bureau," mostly women and clergymen, to spread its doctrines, the chief' of which is that every woman has something wrong with her, and that, Dartmouth-Williams Tomorrow. The big task of building stands with a seating capacity of 10,000 was com pleted on Hampden Park, Springfield, Mass., Monday and only n few minor details now remain in the preparations for the annual Dartmouth -Williams football game tomorrow nfternoon. J. Frank Drake of the Springfield board of trade, who is in charge of arrange ments and tickets, announces that the advance sale to date is larger than it was last season the same length of time before the Brown-Dartmouth game, so that the indications are that the crowd will be close to the 10,1100 mark. Sup porters of Dartmouth are to have the west side of the field, and those of Wil liams will be on the east. The general public has the opportunity to select as the individual spectator pleases, an equal view of the field being given from either side. The well-known abil ity of the Williams students us-singers has caused many to choose the Williams side with a view of getting the benefit of the side with a view of getting the benefit of the singing as well as the playing. All the Springfield hotels are making special arrangements to care for guests, and no city of its size in the country is better situated to care for a throng in this respect than is Springfield. The same fact is one of j the main incidents responsible for hrininntr the came here this year. The park is about five minutes' walk from the center of the city, and electric cars from all directions pass close to it. a., Davenport; c, Warren; I. g., Hoi brook; 1. t., Harlow; 1. e., Oakes; q. b., C.

The teams were supposed to come one from the sophomore class and the other from the freshmen and juniors but each team played "ringers." Glen Jones of the senior class was enlisted on the side of the sophomores while Crosby Adams sided with the consolidated team. When the dust of the fray had cleared the score was 6-0 in favor of the sopho mores. Owing to delay in collecting ida vers the came did not start until 4.30 o'clock and was played in two halves of 15 and 10 minutes each. The sophomores kicked to the consolidated team defending the south goal and af ter the ball had changed hands several times on fumbles and holding for dis tance, Jones carried it over for a touchdown for the sophomores and fol lowed -up the good work by kicking a goal. Neither side was able to come within striking distance of the goal during the second half. Both sides were penalized frequently for rough playing.
