The rule recently made by the Bos ton & Maine railroad in regard to train 42 from White River Junction, which was announced in the Reformer last week, has been the cause of an extra train from White River Junction to Springfield, Mass., several evenings dur ing the past week. According to the new rule the train due to leave White River Junction at 2.30 is not held long enough to break the New York connect ion at Springfield. Heretofore this train has waited for the Montreal train over the Central Vermont but now if that train is more than 40 minutes late, as has been the case several times recently, the mail car for Springfield has to be sent down on a special. This train carrying both mail and passen gers, has "passed through Brattleboro shortly after 7 o'clock. The change is ann'oving on account of the frequent delay of the afternoon mail from the north but this annoyance is more than balanced by the assurance that the 4.23 out of Brattleboro will not miss the New York connection. The marriage of Miss Lulu Eliza beth Cressy and Francis Percy Blake of Melrose, Mass., was very quietly solemnized at nine o'clock on the morn ing of Christmas Day at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. R.

Only the immediate members of ti, fnmilv wore present, with the groom 's sister, Miss May Blake of Mel- rose, and Mr. and Mrs. Blake left at , 10 0 'clock for Boston from whence they j later went for a two weeks ' trip, after which they will return to live witn tne bride's mother in Brattleboro. Mr. Blake is the son of John Blake, presi dent of the Bay State Belting company at Atlanta, Ga., and travels in tho in terests of tho same firm 's Boston house. Mrs. Blake has for some time been pro minently identified with the musical life of " Brattleboro as a pianist and teacher and it is pleasing fo learn that she is to remain here and to continue in the good work she has boon doing. 34B-12 13812 228-4 16913 2612 New Telephone Numbers.
