Knowlton of the Prospect Hill cemetery is very much disturbed over the appearance of a peculiar boring worm among the promising young shade trees and has notified the trustees of the cemetery that some immediate action should be taken to prevent the destruction of Ihe trees. The worm which does the damage is white and makes a hole about the size of a lead peru'il right through the wood of the tree trunk. As many as a dozen holes nia.y be found in a single small tree. This pest is confined to a small section in Prospect Hill cemetery and nearby, but there is no reason to sup-nose that it will remain confined to this locality unless immediate steps are taken to prevent its spread. Mr. Knowlton has plugged up the holes in these trees as far as possible, but does not expect that this will stop the damage, as it will be necessary to use some means to destroy the insect.

Now for two reasons the WHITE SATJN" flour is better to use: The test shows that it contains 86 per cent of wheat gluten compared with other spring patents, testing 35.5, and the loaf has a volume of 121 against the highest competitor of 120, and quality 100.5 per cent and color creamy white in place of creamy, and moisture of only 10.8 per cent against 11.6 per cent. Possibly these figures will mean very little to you but when we state you can obtain 315 pounds of bread per barrel we think that will settle it, it makes a saving of over 50 cents a barrel on any other flour you can purchase. "WHITE SATIN" flour can be obtained through your regular grocer. E. Crosby Co. New England Agents 2i50 pis 1 the Jwin State Gas and Electric company arrived this week and the work of installing the new switchboard will begin Monday. The switchboard is 14 feet in length and 8 feet high. The board is equipped with all kinds of devices for registering disturbances upon the lines of the company and to determine the amount of current that, is being distributed upon the lines through this village. When the transformers arc in place the high tension wires from the Vernon dam of the Connecticut River Power companv will bring volts of current to the station where it will be "stepped down" to 2300 volts. Smaller transformers will step the current down to 104 volts for residence use. Inspector Foley of the Connecticut. River Trans' mission company visits Brattleboro every other day, making a pedestrian tour from Vernon to the pumping station on the Retreat meadow. To get an idea of the vigilance exercised by the transmission company iu caring for its high tension lines between Vernon and Fitchbnrg it may be mentioned that a broken insulntor cannot be repaired until orders have been issued from Fitch-burg. Whenever the power company desires to make other than emergency repairs on its lines running into Brattleboro a notice of one week must be given the Twin State company that arrangements may be made to notify all users of current in this place. This arrangement allows only for shutting off the power during the night. The rest of the new equipment is expected to arrive in time for work to begin Monday on installing the converters. New Fall Styles Are Here See display in south window.

E. J. Watennan informs The Reformer that newspaper men will be admitted to the bailiff!) meetings in the future. On jt. AVaterman says that reporters will not only be welcome but "as welcome as the flowers in May." This means that the people of Brattleboro will be given an opportunity through the newspapers to receive verbatim reports of proceedings in bailiffs' meetings. The Reformer lias contended in its editorial columns that meetings of the. board of bailiffs ought to bo open as are the meetings of nldermanic boards and those of city councils throughout the country. Brattleboro has joined the procession of progressive Vermont towns and invited the newspaper men to attend all meetings of its municipal government. There will, of course, bo times when the board will deem it wise to go into executive session and at such times newspaper reporters will withdraw. This action of the board of bailiffs is akin to the action recently taken bv Judge A. A. Hall of the superior court, in inviting newspaper men within the bar rnil where ho was holding court that such men might be able to hear testimony distinctly and be afforded facilities for doing their newspaper work which would permit them to secure accurate reports of court proceedings. on 's thrilling romance of a love behind a throne, has not only made a fortune for the author, but for two different firms of publishers, and now promises to make a fortune for a firm of theatrical managers who have secured the dramatic rights for the book and arc presenting the play in the leading theaters of the principal cities this season. It is conservatively estimated that more than one million people have read the book, and as there is an edition on the market now selling for fifty cents, it will probably continue to be read for some time to come. Judging by the immense crowds who turned out to see this play when presented in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, the majority of those1 who read the book desired to see the story pnrtrayed in dramatized form. As a sort of diversion local theatergoers will have an opportunity of seeing something entirely new in the amusement line at the auditorium, matinee and evening. Saturday, (Sept. 11. when J. O. Rockwell's New Sunny South company will appear. This season the performance is up-to-date to the minute, bright and pleasing from start to finish. There is every ingredient of gayety and melody nnd the olio presents a strong array 'of vaudeville talent equalled by few'nnd surpassed bv none. The songs and dances of the different players are characteristic of the negro, whose humor nnd comedy are responsible for the laughs throughout the performance. They present a snappy, gingery entertainment, well calculated to chase away frlie blues. Comedy is all that is aimed at and nothing else is reached bar some very clever singing and dancing specialties that will make the audience sit up and look, The organization is accompanied by a high-class concert band nnd orchestra. The band will head the Koontown parade, which will take place at noon. face, your pocketbook downtown in record time if they were needed. The bake was in charge of the executive committee of the club, and Lorenzo Leach was the chef of the occasion. A baseball game was indulged in between fire companies No. 3 and No. 4. As the occasion was purely a social affair no score was kept. The tug of war occurred according to plans but no record was made of the winners, though it is claimed that there were winners in the contest. Gwilym Miles of New York, a baritone singer of remarkable power and wide experience in concert work, gave a recital of songs at the Baptist church Wednesday evening, accompanied on the magnificent Estey organ by Edward F. Holbrook of Keene, N. II. A rather small audience attended and were amply repaid for their presence, A program of considerable length was rendered in such a way as to be almost, above criticism from a musical point of view. Mr. Miles 's songs were grouped according to the character of the composition nnd in each group he showed himself a master of interpretation nnd expression. Mr. Holbrook nccompanied the singer with perfect sympathy and unquestionable taste and rendered some organ solos in a manner which not only showed the possibilities of the instrument, but, also delighted the audience and convinced them that the player was master of his art. The appearance of Mr. Miles and Mr. Holbrook -in Brattleboro at this time was a piece of good fortune which music lovers appreciate, knowing that under ordinary conditions it would be extremely unlikely to occur. Mr. Miles spends his summers in Keene nnd Mr. Holbrook is the organist of the Keene church in which Nelson P. Coffin, who has directed the choral union in Brattleboro, is the director of music. Mr. Coffin, with a few friends, attended the concert. Now is the time to have your sleighs painted for Winter. We will call and store them until sleighing. Satisfaction guaranteed.
