Leading Putney Citizen, While in "Process" by Bunco Steerers and Apparently a Little Stay, is Robbed or (6,000 Barn Set Aflre to. Make the Opportunity An Extraordinary Case. A very rank case of bunco has in.t. inm. tn light at Putney. Saturday morning a stranger mute mio iscuiuMju i7uvih yaru aim represented himself as Mr. Joslin, a son of a banker of Keene,N. II., am soon engaged Mr. Davis in conversation in regard to the sale of Mr Davis' farm. He also convinced Mr. Davis that he was well and personally acquainted with him and also with a great ma jority of the good citizens of 1'utney. And then came the old "put up" game. By some art of mesmerisim or byptonism he got Mr Davis to agree to go to Brattleboro with him and draw from the bank $ 6000, which was done the same dav,Mr Davis riding with the stranger. J5000 of the money was borrowed on a note which Col Francis Goodhue signed with him. but with security. . That a man of Den-nison Davis' shrewdness, for a generation known to be one of the most capable business men of the county, should have been caught by such an old game, one that has been described time ancf time again in the newspapers and one about which the Reformer gave full details only a year ago when it was played on an Addison county farmer, is remai-Kaoie incieeu. ine explanation probably is that he is breaking down. While the two were returning from Brat tleboro to Pntnev, buueoer No 2. appeared, according to schedule. It was near the "Murder Hollow" bridge and No 2 had a great tale of woe to tell. Josyln, so called, claimed to be a friend of the stranger. Apparently Mr. Davis was too shrewd to Jet them "tak"e him m" in the regnlation way, so it developed during the conversation that the stranger No 2 must return to Brattleboro at once to do some telegraphing. So Mr Davis was allowed to walk" home, a distance of some four miles but he was overtaken after about a mile by Mr Field and rode with him. . Perhaps the plan was to rob or kidnap him and was prevented by this. Mr Davis remembers encountering another stranger on the road, with a long cluster on. The stranger was to meet Mr Davis at his home in Putney next Tuesday when their bargain what ever it was was to lie closed up. Now comes the finishing touches. .. ' . . ? 'Wednesday night about eleven o'clock several people in the village heard a team drive through the village headed toward Mr Davis, which Mr Davis himself heard. There was one, and some claim two men in the buggy. At twelve o'clock Mr Davis was awakened liv a light shining in his window. Getting up and looking out. he saw his buildings across the road from his residence were afire. Calling the hired man, Mr Phillips, who had just then seen the fire himself, they started in to save what they could, at the same time giving the alarm, but the buildings including barn, grainery and other outbuildings with about 30 tons of hay, a steer, hens, etc, were totallv consumed. The were insnred for $1300 on the big barn, $900 on the contents and $200 on the grainery and contents perhaps half what they were worth. On returning to: the house Mr ? Davis bethought himself of his money which he had placed in a tin trunk in his room. Upon looking in the bureau in the dining room where he kept it, no box was to be. found there. His money had taken wings and gone. He then made an examination of the house and found' at one of the rear windows the screen torn off, the window raised and a chair beneath it on the outside. The stranger's appearance was brought quite forcibly to Mr . Davis's mind and he will remember him as long as he lives. Mr Davis is rather reticent about the matter and feels that he haa been made a fool of and buncoed out of his hard earnad ash. Bat from various state- menu it Is snntllsed that the buncocr talked about bo: Hiybip other farnni or other profitable fill &llfi.i Mith wa . .A n. . .. n K 1 w " sirsngeai part of tha thing is, that the man who took the money naa to pass wunin six reet of the watch dng, which Is considered a model, allowing no one to enter the yard without barking or taking hnlil nf ttia fntinlo.
