Leonard that burglars who cracked the safe in the post-office at Castleton before daylight today made off with post-age stamps valued at about $800 and between $50 and $60 in cash. The stamps included manv commemorative issues which are of value to collectors. Entrance to the building was gained. Leonard said, by prying open a window. Although the safe was of simple construction and could easily have been opened by experts the burglars took the trouble to bore into it and explode a charge of dynamite, leading the investigators to believe that the theft was the work of amateurs. Similar methods were used in recent postoffice burglaries in Dorset and Londonderry. Persons working in a restaurant near the postoffice at Castleton heard a dull explosion at 3 a. m.

This is expected to bring keen competition. Although Captain Fred Boswell with his famous jumper "Tid Bits" of the Teela Wooket camps is well known locally and throughout the New England states for their performances in past shows, they .start this season with a greater reputation that is known nationally. Last fall at the National Horse show held in Madison Square Garden in New York city Mr. Boswell was runner-up with his mount for performance, against the many famous riders and horses competing for world honors in the show. Some of the competition Mr. Boswell was up against was the American army, Irish Free State, Canadian. Chilean, French, English. Swedish armv jumping teams. The Olym pic, the most difficult of courses, was used entirely. In the finai classes for elimination, Mr. Boswell was competing for fourth place and lost by only a few points from being with the winners . This was a real achievement for both Mr. Boswell and his mount, as the National Horse show is the final word in horse- shows in the east. Funeral of Orsoiji 1).
