Over 600 granite cutters in the Barre sheds have been thrown out of work on account of the lack of business.

One of the pair of large black horses belonging to J. E. Walbridge, an undertaker of Bennington, was struck and instantly killed last Wednesday evening at the Rutland railroad crossing near the Vermont Soldier's home. The other horse and the two men riding on the ambulance when the train struck the vehicle were uninjured. On account of a blinding snow storm the men failed to see the train until it was too late to escape. A pull of the reins drew the horse to one side so that the force of the collision was spent upon the horse nearest the locomotive. The horse was valued at $500. Alex Denesk, 19 years old, lost his life and Steven Baginiski sustained a broken shoulder and a' broken arm while at work in the quarry of the Vermont Marble company last Thursday. The men were at work in the bottom of the quarry when a large block of mable weighing 200 or 300 pounds became loosened from the bank 70 feet above them and came crashing down on them before they had time to get out of the way. The rock was probably loosened by the action of the frost. Denesk was instantly killed, being struck on the head and his skull crushed.

Green who is an express messenger was on the expess running from Burlington to Ogdens-burg, when a light engine which was trying to get to a siding in order to clear the track for the express collided with it head on. Nothing left the tracks which accounts for the saving of lives. The engineer and fireman of the light engine escaped without serious injuries while the engineer f the express sustained a fractured skull. An application will be made between now and March term of Washington county court by Mildred Brewster through her counsel, Lord & Carleton that she be removed from the insane asylum at Waterbury to the brattleboro retreat. She believes that she will be more contented at Brattleboro. Under law recently, passed by the legislature the court of chancery is given authority to make such an order when the court is satisfied that it will be for the benefit of the person so confined. The law is a general one but was introduced especially to cover Miss Brewster's case since there was no authority for the court to make such an order previously. George T. Chaffee of Rutland has been appointed by Governor Mead to be a trustee of the state school of agriculture for a term of one year.

The owners of the mine, who have been quietly working all summer on their plans in regard to this mine, are well known as shrewd business men and have bought several farms in Newfane and Wardsoro, with a total of more than 1,000 acres, and will work the mine with the expectation of developing a valuable property. The ore has been assayed and has been found to be worth enough to warrant the owners to expend money in development of the mine. SCREEN WORKS TO MOVE Plant Now Located at Winooski to Go to Roebling, N. J. The prospect is that the Porter Screen Works, now located in Winooski, will be removed to Trenton, N. J. during the coming year. The concern is controlled by the John A. Roebling Sons' Company, manufacturers of various kinds of wire. This concern has built up the modern town of Roebling near Trenton and the object in taking the Porter Works there is to concentrate all their plants at one point so as to save expense in freights both on raw material and the completed product. About 200 hands are employed in the Winooski plant but the majority of them are residents of Burlington. Verdict Against C. V. A jury in the Windsor County court last week rendered a verdict against the Central Vermont Railway company for $4,900 damages in favor of Miss Euber, 17 years old, of Troy, N. Y.

PROCTORITES FEAR LOSS Agent of Austria-Hungary Goy-ernment Missing Poor People Had Intrusted Savings to Him to be Sent Abroad, Which Have Not Reached Destination. The authorities of Rutland county fear that Carl Grossman, a former prominent citizen of Proctor, has left for parts unknown carrying with him the savings of several residents of Proctor which were entrusted to him to be forwarded to the old country. Grossman has the consular represenative of Austria-Hungary having charge of affairs in Vermont, He has been missing from his usual haunts for more than two weeks and representatives of the government for which he acted are making an investigation. It is feared that an amount approximating $7,000 is involved. The consular office at Proctor will be discontinued. It is impossible to learn what action will be taken to prosecute the charges that are likely to be lodged against Mr. Grossman. It is probable that no formal charge will be made against him by the state of Vermont until his troubles with his government have been settled and then there is the question as to whether or not he is exempt from any charges that might be made here on account of the office he held. It is understood that Mr. Grossman has some property in the old country and the auhorities have a plan to first make retribution to the poor people whose money he had in charge. In several instances, at least, the money which Mr. Grossman . had in charge was the earnings of poor people. A local merchant found one woman who had lost about $60, in fact all the word-ly wealth she possessed. One man Frank Jacobs, gave Mr. Grossman $1,500 last January and wanted it forwarded to him in the old country. His brother later came to Proctor and he reported that the money never arrived. Recently he displayed the receipt signed by Mr Grossman and when asked if he had any proof that his brother did not receive the money he showed a letter from Mr. Grossman, received since he went away, saying that he would return to Proctor soon and at this time would refund the money. This showed that he had not transmitted it. Mr. Grossman is a well educated man and among his accomplishments is the free and easy way in which he speaks different ( languages. His friends are of the opinion that in some way he has become unbalanced in his study of the question of perpetual motion. He was also interested in a big painting, representing a battle scene with life size figures and which covered thousands of feet of canvas . He had invented a perpetual motion machine which he claimed would work. He said he had solved this problem. . Milton Man Loses Wad I Ebenezer E. Herrick, Jr., of Milton, : while in New Haven. Conn., with a load of potatoes last week either was ' robbed or lost his bag containing $200. I He was pushing his way through a crowd to the railroad station when he j discovered his loss.

BURLINGTON RENDERING CO., Burlington, Vt. FOR SALE BY A. B, KILBOURN, Bristol, Vt. The Number of Depositors was 27,656 NO TARRIFF TINKERING Congressman Plumley Talks About Congressional Prospects Congressman Plumley, who is spending the Christmas vacation at his home in Northfield does not think that there will be any attempt made to change the tariff at the short term of congess now in session. The time would not be sufficient and the tariff board is not ready to make its report. Mr. Plumley believes that this board should be strenghtened and should be made permanent. , This board has an important work to perform. It investigates costs of production in this country and abroad so as to arrive at a tariff standard which shall compensate for the difference beween the cost of production in this country and foreign countries. In other words it will ascertain the point at which the tariff will protect the home producer without burdening the home consumer. Congressman Plumley regards the election of Champ Clark to the speakership of the House as assured. Furthermore, he does not expect any opposition. "The people have asked for a trial of Democratic policies," said Mr. Plumley, "and the Republicans of the House, as an organiaztion, will attempt no partisan legislation in the short time before the new members come into office." He said such action would be very properly opposed by the Democratic members. No' radical legislation is to be expected so long as the Senate remains Repubican, and there is no reason to expect any will be attempted. Women Braver Than Men It has always been maintained that women were more courageous at standing physical pain than men, but it is a new claim that they are braver, more careless of their own safety, quicker to act than men in an emergency. Yet according to Herbert Longfellow, chief of the United States Volunteer Life-Saving Corps in the January Designer not only women, but children are braver than men. He is quoted as saying: "It has been my experience that women and children are more heroic than men. They are more impetuous. A man thinks of his responsibility, of thoce dependent on him, and of his own personal well-being. Women and children think of nothing but the human life in peril. They act on the moment, so quickly that fear has no chance to sway them at all. It is in the nature of things that men are more frequently at ' the pos of danger. Yet when opportunity presents itself a far larger percentage of women and children will risk their lives. Heroes are not those who deliberate upon their chances. Heroes are those who rush to the rescue without considering themselves at all. This women and children do." Fell 60 Feet To Death Herbert Patterson, aged about 24 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Patterson of Putney, was instantly killed last Sunday morning when he fell from the trestle near the West Dum-merston station on the East River branch of the Central Vermont railway. With four companions he started to walk across the trestle and was behind the rest of the party. It is not known whether he slipped or fell off a3 the first his companions knew that anything had happened was when they heard him strike the rocks below. He struck on his face which was crushed by the fall of 60 feet. Besides his parents he leaves three sisters. The number of Vermont corporations filed at the office of Secretary of State Guy W. Eailey for the year 1910 to date is 88, which is somewhat below the number filed in 1909, when 103 new corporations, not including foreign corporations, began business in the State. 1 The fifth annual show of the Vermont Poultry association at Barre opened with nearly 1,000 birds.
