amounting to over as well as quite a large amount of Jewelry and other Unflor tho supervision of Sheriff Illley tho ruins were carefully ffons but not a trace of tho missing silverware was The man and lived in a llttlo houso at about 15 rods from the Pratt Tho Tuesday bo fore the which occurred Thursday morning at Mrs Wright left for St as tho first stage In her journey to N as she Tho couple had determined to go to as Wright had se cured a situation on the electric He says Mrs Wright went to St Johns bury to get somo dressmaking But as St Johnsbury is 40 miles to the the real reason why she went there Is believed to be something At any rato she got off at Bradford and called for her which she had checked at Falrlce for St Just where she went then Is not but the next night she turned up to tho Wynona and asked for a horse and sleigh to go to Bradford and get her In a little place like this each Inhabi tant knows everybody else and often more about ones business than ones The hostler know that Wright was not In six miles to the but at across tho to the so he thought something was wrong and would not let the turnout without consulting the Mr Before he called his employer he asked Mrs Wright what train her husband went to Bradford to which she rather pertly Nona of your If I cant get a team here Ill go somewhere The proprietor ana as he knew nothing particular to Mrs Wrights dis advantage he let her have the horso and She said she would be back In two and as that was about the right time for a horse to travel to Bradford and all was thought to be She left the stable at B p m Wednes day and came back at 2 a m Thurs having been gone five Instead of She want going toward and came alone from tho direction of and as she had said she was going for her but back without it was thought especially as Wright had boen in Fairlee while she was As she returned the horse and sleigh she asked if the m train for Bos ton had When told that It had not she left in great after paying for the use of the But this trip to Bradford Is what throws suspicion upon and Is what has led more than anything else to tho Investigation which has ended in the The morning after the flro tho horse which Mrs Wright had hired was tracked to a cemetery about onethird of a mile from tho where the horse had been From this hitching which is but a few rods across the fields to the Pratt were found a double row of those of a man and of a lead ing up to the back door of the Pratt The horso and sleigh were also seen by half a dozen persons about und In tho vicinity of a ohwch not far from tho Wynona One of these was a engaged In a wooing did not euro to have his whereabouts Ho drove up to the church horse sheds and Into a stall about 11 p As ho drove into It his horsu stumbled over something He got out to and found it to be a cape a soft black hat and a pair of all of which wero later Identified by Mrs Pratt as tho property of her late hus band which hud been left at tho houso which was Tho feeling that perhaps there was more fun in watching a trap than In a prolonged sitting even with a pretty drove into another stall and sat down to It was but a little while before he saw a horse and sleigh driven up by a lone woman and Into the stall whore tho overcoat In a few momenta tho outlU backed out of tho stall and wont south toward I01y which Is on tho road to Thrue other persons also saw the and are sure that thciro was a large bundle covered uji under tho lap Thu outfit was seen by another witness going at a good pace In thu direction of To make nura that the outfit let to Mrs Wriolit and liin omi hitched ncnr the cemetery tha Pratt house were tho Mr Warren of thu Wynona houso had a John remove the shoes from the horse and test them by tho tracks mutle In tho though olayey They were ac companied by Dr Burnes and half a doz en other promlnant They fitted even to the number and plac ing of the together with peculiar marks on the shoes and tho arrange ments of the In tho condition that It was in on that night and day Is as to re ceive and hold an impression as and as there had been no change In the weather between tho time the impres sion was made and the time tho shoes were the tost was regarded as highly But when the authorities had arrived at this stage it was found that neither of Iho Wrights were at Further investigation showed that when Mrs Wright returned tho horse and sleigh to Mr she left for the depot to catch tho a m train for Tho station was but a few steps but instead of going direct to tho station she cut across lots to strike tho rear of the Brakeman Wyatt and other freight hands were about tho and observing a woman way back at tho rear of the proposed to go to find out whut she was after and who she Just what a woman could be climbing over lumber excited their tlio womans was amonu and volunteered to go buck and find Ho did re turned and Informed the men that it was merely a woman who wanted to catch tho No more questions wero anil no more remarks but when the train pulled Wright got on the forward cur and went out with Tho auUorltlcs wonder why he did not recognize his wife or say It was his wife if everything was all It was also found that Mr Instead of going on to N as ho said ho was going to Got ofC the train at about 18 miles south of here and went to N where he hired a horeo and sleigh to go back to Just how far back ho went Is not but ho old get as far as North about five miles from for lie stopped at tho house of Hunry Downer and took breakfast with Ho told Mr Diwner that ho had left a valiso containing scmo very valuable property on I ho station platform at Fair and that ho had not dared to leave It there till tho station agent got there In tho He exhibited a valise to Mr as confirming his yet ho did not say ho had been to Fairlee and wos on his way back to Hanover with tho noreo and Ho had no valise when hewas at station with tho freight nor had he any when he got on the But tho theory of the authorities is that Mrs Wright had concealed tho valiso about the station Just before she had re turned tho then took the horse returned to the rear of the sta took the valiso and boarded tho train with It is also believed that this valise was in the custody of1 her brother whilo she was and that when she met Wright on tho train she gave It to him that he got off at Nor hired the horse and sleigh at Han and drove to some secure hiding place with and then returned with the livery This valise is what tho authorities are far It Is almost certain that it contained the worth of Just where the silverware Is not even guessed What makes tho au thorities sure of their case is because Mrs Pratt It la been ap proacliod with an offer that If she will drop the prosecution tho property will he together with a bonus of though Mrs Wright had a for tune ot 53000 left her about nine years ago by her Charles once president of the Flrat national bank of It Is looked upon as
