Vacation Crowds Going and Coming Cause Congestion. Trains Late in Leaving South Station. The meeting of two titles of travel returning vacationists, and those bound for the country and seashore for the holiday yesterday gave railroad men at both the North and South Stations a nerve-wracking day. It Was bad enough at the North Station, but it was confusion confounde I at the other terminal. Long before the noon nour the con gestion was of serious proportions at the South Station, and as early as 8 o'clock trains were not dispatched until several minutes after their sched uled time. Around noon the delays in leaving lengthened, and this affected not only the trains bound for the Cape and distant points but local trains as well. A train for Braintree n.nd points on the South Shore, scheduled to leave Boston at 12:50, did not pull out until 1:13, and this was a fair sample of the delays throughout the afternoon. As far as could be learned, nearly all the New Haven trains were late In leaving The result was a great deal of confusion among the throngs of people at the South Station. Gaten.en were surrounded by crowds in search of infor mation about their trains, but. the employes could tell them little of value. There was much rushing to and fro, and frequently a jam, when an Incom ing train emptied its great load of humanity. At the North Station the crowds were nearly as dense. The most noticable feature here, however, was the accumulation of baggage. The inbound basreae'e room was pile! hierh with trunks and suitcases, and the line of trucks loaded with additional trunks was continuous. More piles of baggage were to be seen at the outgoing room. The Saturday before Labor Day is considered the hardest day of the season for the baggage handlers, but yesterday appeared to establish a new record. One reason for the congestion at both terminals was th.l the railroads were obliged to care for crowds coming in and crowds going out. Most of the people who have been In the mountains or at the ehore throughout the Summer and thos. who have spent the month of August in the country returned home yesterday. With them came those who are completing a wilts' vacation. At the terminals ;h! hrr.ieward-bound host came face to face with the throngs who had bought tickets for the Summer resorts for a stay over the holiday an unusually large number of them. Many of the Boston-bound trains were In two sections, and all had additional coaches. This same condition applied to the trains leaving yesterday from both stations. The problem seemed to be how to make room for the train coming In, and at the same time dispatch the trains outbound. At the South Station this problem was not solved, at least not to the satisfaction of hundreds of people who were delayed in reaching their destinations.

Life of Town's Oldest Resident at 90 One of Varied Adventure. HILL. N H, Aug 30-Moses F. Little, the oldest man In town, will be 90 years old tomrrow and as the date falls upon the Safobath his friends and neighbors helped him observe the event today. A large number called during the afternoon to offer congratulations. Mr Llttie has had a career that rivals the plot of a novel. He is a '49-er and before going to the California gold fields was for four years aboard a whaling vessel from New Bedford, cruising on the Pacific. Mr Little has a collection of clippings from various newspapers which is probably unrivalled. The Boston Globe stands first upon his list of favorite, and he has many volumes of fiinnirurs oasteH from It. These include entire books with Globe poems and oth ers with Globe puzzle pictures, .aar kittle has 70 volumes of clippings In all. Mr Little calls this his "knitting." He has been "scrapping." as he calls it, for 20 years. He still keeps it up and sets himself a certain amount to do each week. He also has an album filled with cuts of famous men and women taken from newspapers. Each volume is properly labeled. One containing poetry selected In 1911 is marked "Poetical Scrap Book, 1911." Another Is labeled for 1912. Each book had a card saying, "Private library of Moses F. Little, Hill, N H." Moses F. Little was born in Bos-cawen Aug 31, 1823. His father and grandfather were both named Ellphat Little. The family moved to Salisbury nnrl lived there until Mr Little's father died. Mosras stayed at home and helped his father on the farm. He also learned the shoemaker s trade. In his 21st year he made himself a mlr of shoes, nut them on and on July 4, with Augustus Call, a friend, walked from Salisbury to Portsmouth. Then the young men went by boat to Boston, where they heard wonderful tales of life on the ocean from thfc lips of "runners Jor whaling -vessels. These so influenced young Little that he shipped aboard the whaler Arnolda at New Bedford and cruised four years in the Pacific. Then, in 1849, with a friend, he signed with a mining company in Lynn and left with a party of 50 for California across the plains. Presently he went into the milk business. He kept one cow and was the first "Yankee" who ever carried milk Into San Francisco fors ale. Mr Little had been writing to a girl. Miss Caroline Straw, in Salisbury and came East to get her to go to California with him. Her father declined to let her go West, however, so he settled up his affairs in the West, married and moved to Hill. Here he conducted a general store, both alone and in company with his son, Carroll. In 1500 be retired and purchased the house where he resides today. In Winter he lives with his son and family. Mr Little lost his right hand at the wrist July 5, 1878. it being caught upon a saw in Blodgett's saw mill. After the accident Mr Little tan to the railroad track, hailed his friend the engineer, the train was stopped and the injured man was taken to Franklin, six miles, where the hand was amputated. Mr Little has held practically every office in the gift of his townsmen. He has been town clerk and Selectman and nlnce 1864, a justice of the peace. He belongs to the Good Templars. He is in good health, although a little harr of hearing. His father was a Democrat and he was until the war, since which time he has been a Republican. The war turned him. He is a Progressive. One of his I works is a book of poems written with ; a goose quill pen, the pen being of his own make. He is an expert writer. ; These poems were copied when he was ! a boy. He has books of 800 pages filled with poems that he has clipped and pasted up. One volume is poetry from a Manchester newspaper, another Is a Boston paper, but the Globe is his favorite. Mr Little has been three times married. He has a brother, Rev Eben Little, in Michiteant two sons and three daughters. Carroll of Baltimore, Ellon of Hill. Carrie of Pittsfleld, Mass, Fannie of Franklin and Annie of Franklin.

Aug 30 Slxt - members from all over New England of the John Bean Association of America family attended the 17th annual reunion at Elks' Hall today, at which an interesting program was carried out and dinner served. A feature of the reunion was a historical address by .toy lr E. S. Stackpole, pastor of the First Church of Christ (Congregational), Bradford District. The exercises included an address of welcome by Frank Chase Bean of this city, reports of the president. Rev Samuel C.

Just bear In mind as you slouch along with your English boy's size suit, your baby Paul eyes, your sample mustache and that chlll-reducl g walking stick that you'd be hatpinned if you were in Germany. If there's anything the girls In the Vaderland can't tolerate it's a handsome heart-wrecker. During the last week some of the pinkest-cheeked young women In Berlin, all unmarried, of course, organized a "League Against Beauty" and vowed that If they ever married it would be men of exceptional plainness who would accompany them to the altar They declared that the soft-spoken he beauty is a aellgnt to ine eye, dux mai wnen It comes to furnishing the wheat cakes and sausag'3 and prying the mortgage off the old farm all he has is a fancy vest and a tottering excuse. It takes the plaln-fa.ced chap with the prehistoric tailoring to trek home with the pay envelope and remain constant but broke. It's Just one of a thousand instances to prove that new adage: "You can't get away with it." Just think of the admiration that has been wasted along Broadway by honest country lads, who, equipped with a suit of store clothes, the family blessing and about $3 in currency, have dropped in to get a peep at the city. They have creaked along the flashlight groove for all the years, their new congress shoes busily ruining their honest feet. And as they have gazed Ution the gorgeous clothes fillers that Hue Broadway hope has Invariably died. But now is all changed. The true-hearted, honest type, whose facial outline causes horses to drop back on their haunches ana mutornu n to put on the air brake, will drift along contentedly, aware at last that they have been "declared in." The possibilities that the new order of things present are nearly endless. WheQ the boycott has extended to the various Nations there will be a rush to cover of the handsome persons whose sole ambltlwn has heretofore been to resemble the Impossible demons who represent the leading collar brands. Undoubtedly me lauors win oe set at work to wreck an or tnese chronic sigh-producers at once. Apparel will be so constructed that It will be Impossible to tell whether the victim Is traveling with or against the wind, and every detail of the ruined lines will make for plainness. Shoes that show off the foot in all Its ijristine width and length will be displayed In all of the shop windows, and the chap who is lucky enotgh to have large, warty, honest hands will be constantly fus!ng with his necktie Just so the girls will be sure he's a regular homespun person and jnt the thing for a weddln? It will develop the age of plainness. The tendency to buck up and look as military and dashing as possible will fade- from all men's Inclinations. Tho old top who is carrying a hundred pounds overweight will stroll along in precisely the same manner he affects when walking around his home In bath slipperti. The long suffering fellow who has been trying to disguise the fact that he is round shouldered will drop Into a perfect circle and the human needle who has been affecting a pillow In t it shoulders of his coats will order hie tailor to cut out the sunsense and. let the whole world know. REV F. P. JOHNSON RETURNS TO BOSTON Will Be Assistant at Gkurch of Ascension. Went From Emmanuel Parish to New York City in 1911. Rev Frank Poole Johnson, who has Just severed his connection with All Saints' Church, New Tonjc, is to assist Rev William L. Clark at the Church of the Ascension, the South End mission of Emmanuel parish. In this capacity he succeeds Rev Franklin U. Bugbee, who has completed a year's service there. In coming to the Church of the Ascension, where he assumes, his duties tomorrow, Mr Johnson Is returning to a parish In which his work is already well known and where his personal popularity Is strong. From 1909 to 1911 Rev Mr Johnson was associate rector of Emmanuel Church, with Rev Dr Elwood Worcester and before that associate rector at St Paul's Church, now known as the Cathedral Church of St Paul. He Is a member of one of the oldest families In this city. On May 1, 1911, Rev Mr Johnson left Emmanuel Church in order to become rector of All Saints' Church, New York, one of the oldest Episcopal churches In that city and located in the midst of the foreign colony. His work there has been almost entirely among the poor. Mr Johnson was bortv in Woburn in 1870. He graduated from Amherst College in 18a3. He studied at the Union Theological Seminary in New York and at the Episcopal Theological Seminary In Cambridge, and after making a tour of the world, was appointed assistant at Christ Church, New Orleans. In April, 1904, he was ordained deacon of that church and a few months later was made rector of St Andrew's Church there. Next he came to St Paul's here as assistant to Bishop .Taggar. He has also been rector of parishes In Worchester and Marblehead. Mr Johnson has received numerous calls for his services. These have come mainly from American parishes, although one particularly tempting one came from the vicars of St Augustine's and St Mark's, East London, to Join them in their work among the poorest in the East London slums. ' , V v--:-:W - V ' THE NORWOOD HOUSE. ALLEGE SECRET PROFITS. Wilbur and Other Stockholders Ask for Investigation of Acts of Potosi Mines Directors. In a bill of equity fiied in the Superior Court yesterday, George B. Wilbur and other stockholders of the Potosi Mines Company, demand an investigation of the acts of the board of directors of that company. The plaintiffs allege that Benedict J. Baker, Den man Blanchard, Edwin M. White, Charles Q. Norrls, Arthur W. Pitman, William H. Tyler, Thomas Reed. William E. Baker and James R. Simpson, the board of directors of the Potosi Mines Company, at a meeting held on July 2, 1912, voted to convey all the property of the Potosi Mines Company and the Potoal Lead, Marv&t and Mercantile Company to the St Francois Lend Company for $50,000 tn cash and 17,500 shares of Its capital stock. The property thus conveyed, the plaintiffs' claim, had an actual value of $750, 000, and as a result of a syndicate agreement the plaintiffs alleges that the de-fondants made large secret profits In violation of their fiduciary relations to the stockholders of the Potosi Mines Company 1 NORWOOD, Aug 30 The removal of the old "Norwood House" this week from the site which it has occupied for more than a century, and Its passing as a public house, takes away from the center of Norwood a landmark which will be missed by the thousands of automobilists who pass along Washington st, the old State road of past years, to Providence from Boston. This historic house was known to former generations as "The Old Tavern," later as "The South Dedham Inn" (for Norwood was South Dedham till 1872), and later as the Norwood House. When it was first built or what was its first name is unknown for part of it is very old. A woman who died at the age of 100 in 1897 told her grandson that the central part, the "Old Tavern," was an old inn when she was a little girl. The Old Tavern vas built probably some time before the Revolution on land owned by Paul Ellis, a part of his many acred farm, in the centre of what is now a large town of nearly 12,000 inhabitants. The first proprietors are believed to have been Paul Ellis and Lewis Rhodes, and they carried on the inn business for a quarter of a century. For many years the centre square of the village of South Dedham was known as "The Hook." and It is known as such to some of the oldest people of the present day. This was where the Old Tavern stood. Many legends have come down from the past explaining the meaning of the name. It is said that from the iron rod. on which swung the sign, extended a hrok, over which the horseback riders visiting the tavern bar would throw their bridle reins while they were gossiping with their friends and sipping "flip" and other drinks. There are well authenticated stories of Revolutlnary soldiers marching over this road and stopping at the old tavern for refreshments, and as the community was a hotbed of "rebellion" In the Revolutionary days, they were doubtless welcome. The story that Washington and his suite visited the tivern while besieging Boston, while unau-thenticated, is not regarded as apocryphal by many of the historians. It is certain that Abraham Lincoln stopped at the inn while passing through the community, and remembered it through having his tall hat knocked off by the branches of some trees while riding under them, just below the inn. When President in the White House. Lincoln recalled that fact to a visitor from this community, when he heard the name of South Ddham. In tho second story of the central part, the oldest section, where the four windows are close together, was a dance hall. The barroom was below. Many Interesting stories are told of the Innkeepers. Uncle Joe Sumner was the landlord for many years during the early part of the T9th centurv. It was during the time of the great temperance Washingtonlan movement that Rev Edwin Thompson was pastor of the Unl-versallst Church of South Dedham. He was much troubled by the sale of liquor in this community and after much investigation decided that the Old Tavern was the headquarters of the business. So he pleaded with Joe Sumner to stop selling, and finally the landlord agreed to quit the business forever it someone would buy his stock of .'quor. Rev Mr Thompson was a poor man, but he pledged his salary, bought the liquor and- poured It out on the ground. His salary was at that time but $300 a year. Mr Sumner kept his word and become president of the Washingtonlan movement here. The son of Rev Mr Thompson, the late Charles Marsh Thompson, a newspaper man and former correspondent of the Globe, used to complain that hi writing about the affair of telling of it, peopJe and especially reporters would always omit to tell what his father did with the rum, leaving the outcome uncertain. But Mr Thompson assured the writer that It was emptied in the gutter. There are some darker thapttrs to the old house. In 1868 occuired ther one of the most bloody murders ever committed In the State. A Dr Marslon lived there with his wife and little daughter. The wife grew crasy with jealousy, hid under -the bed in their room, which was the one at the corner, and when her husband went to bed, shot him dead. She 'then went out into the hall, met their little child, awakened by the noise, and shot her, killing her instantly. Then she got into bed with her husband's body, put her arm around his neck and shot herself. The place has not b-en free from the taint of suicide in the olden time, according to legend, while other stories more or less authentic are related of death within the old house. The front part was built probably 100 years ago, while the part at the rear was- erected in 1856. The Odd Fallows bought the property some years ago and used the hall In the rear of the second story for their meetings. When Norwood separated from Dedham in 1872 the old place was called the "Norwood Hotel," afterwards "The Norwood House." As such it was known and used as a hotel till last Spring. About a year ago Mr Georgs F. Willett bought the property of the Odd Fellows and later sold the land to the town of Norwood. The Odd Fellows built a fine, new block. Mr Willett has had the old building moved to a place on Nahatan st, where it Is understood it will be used as a work-ingmen's boarding house. The site, on what is known now as "Norwood sq," will be used by the town as a park, while at a later period a town hall may be erected on adjoining land which the town also owns.
