Amidon the influenza situation to the Public a As Many inquiries Are coming in daily As to the influenza situation in his District i wish to say that thiere is no wide spread epidemic As yet and such cases As we have Are much Milder As a Rule than those of a year ago. During the prevalence of this disease one of the greatest mistakes that can be made is to try to discriminate Between cases of so called a Ippen and influenza. All authorities Are agreed that they Are one and the same disease except that the a gripped so called is of a Milder Tye and not so contagious. Therefore All cases of so called a a gripped should be considered As influenza. The instructions that have gone out to physicians Call for quarantine of the entire family where cases occur except that the wage earner is allowed to go to his work provided that he can do so without endangering others and will remain at Home or go Home on the appearance of the first symptoms. Teachers Are hereby notified that they must not allow children to attend school if they come from families where there Are cases of a a gripped or influenza. If a child appears in school that can be plainly seen to be coming Down with an acute cold a ale should be sent Home both on Hii own account and danger of infecting the Well children of the school. It is thou Ruht Best not to close schools except in exceptional cases As an attempt will be made through instructions to the teachers to keep he disease out of schools whereas if the schools Are closed a Large proportion of the pupils run about the streets and into houses More or less where there is danger of infection. During the prevalence of influenza crowds should be avoided As much As possible and no unnecessary gather Newport chamber of co farm Bureau notes a big boost to club work give miss Reba Porter spent the week of that City one of the City a wealthy end with friends in St. Johnsbury.

I Cwi be taken not to cough or sneeze with of tomorrow. By appropriating $100 toward the employment of a boys and girls club Leader the chamber of Commerce at Newport has a in taken the initiative in stimulating farm Bureau work this time in behalf of the boys and girls. No definite plans Are available yet As to How this work will be carried out till july 1st. A possible candidate for the position of club Leffier is in View and if he decides to consider the proposition he will not be available until the 1st of july. In the meantime the farm Bureau will make an Effort to locate a temporary Leader who will take Over this work until july 1st. This prospective candidate is a Man of unusual ability and will be sure to prove of tremendous value to this county if he considers this position. To support club work As a regular it of the farm Bureau work it will a necessary to raise considerably increased funds during the membership drive in june the Extension service will pay into the county regularly $1500 a year but this amount will not pay All the salary of such a Leader to say nothing of travelling expenses and extra office help that will be necessary. A club Leader to do effective work will also need an automobile in which to travel. All this will mean a much added expense to the farm Bureau a budget of probable expenses shows that around $4030 will be needed in the june Campaign. Business interests farming interests and All local people in the county will be asked to strongly support this move which is bound to mean so much for the boys and girls of this county.

D. Carriers Rural Carrier a. W. Davies of Orleans on route 3, sends the editor of the paper the following taken from the Edinboro a Sun saying that saw a nyx. A a a 043kjf ill Ulli Mitno doubt every statement made in i the article applies to the carriers a of Orleans county. A for some time past up to within few Days the mail carriers especially going South Over the. Hills have had an extremely hard time of it. Some of them on account of the deep Snow and unbroken roads were unable to Complete their routes for some two or three Days and the accumulated mail was so Large that one of the carriers hired a Man with a double team and Bob sled to break through the roads and deliver this mail. He states that the team fell Down something like a dozen times and the horses would lie for a time on the Snow and rest. A in our opinion this is radically wrong. If the people in the Back districts want their mail delivered by carriers they should break the Road for them and where the roads Are not broken the gov emment should not compel the carriers the deliver the mail. A parties who want their mail in times of Deeo Snow should not Only break the roads but shovel a path from the main Road the their boxes and not compel the Carrier to Wade three feet deep to get from the main Road to the boxes. A the slogan should be in our opinion a no roads no it is not Only cruelty to animals but cruelty to men to compel them in Zero weather to deliver the mail when the Faar ers will not break the roads and the teams used by the carriers on account of the extreme deep Snow often fall Down and Are with difficulty placed upon their feet again. A Rural carriers Are human and should be treated in a human manner especially As the wages they receive last weeks Newport news published Friday said the True character of the so called a Russell g. Bancroft a promoter of a scamp Westmore for girls a at Willoughby Lake will be disclosed today at a hearing to be held in Burlington. It reads like a veritable sensational drama. A petition has been filed with tee United states District court for the District of Vermont by Chas. Dudley amp co., inc., of Hanover n. H., asking that a scamp West More company be adjudicated a bankrupt. Or. Dudley is one of the largest creditors of the company. The petitioners claim that the company owes debts amounting to Over $80,000, while the assets in its Possession Are probably less than $3,000. They claim that acts legally known As acts of bankruptcy have been committed by the corporation. Furthermore More than 12 creditors desire that this petition and subpoena be served and bankruptcy be declared. The following is a list of the company a creditors who have already brought suit Basing their claims on goods wares and merchandise delivered and York and labor unpaid Carroll Jenkins or leans b. F. And h. L. Jackman Barton c. O. Stone amp son inc., Middletown Conn. Laura Joll Compton que. George c. Lang Barton Chas Pierce West Burke Joseph wills Orleans r. And c. Calkins Barton c. A nut Barton mrs. A. L. Peene who holds a mortgage on the real estate has brought foreclosure proceedings and secured a decree. Besides these there Are a Large number of creditors Many of whom Are the leading Newport business men and firms. President of the Camp corporation is mrs Anna d. Justis of Newport Delaware on whose credit and Thal of her friends the Camp Wesl note Enterprise was largely financed. The clerk is Joseph f. Freston of Fitchburg mass. Both of these desire that the company be adjudicated a bankrupt. The treasurer of the company was Russell g. Bancroft who is undoubtedly the cause of the financial failure of Camp Wert More. The following is a sketch of or. Bancroft a former career reported from a reliable source which cannot fail to be of interest to tee stockholders and creditors of the Camp West More company. It is alleged that or. Bancroft has been crookedly affiliated with Many different corporations several of which have been financially utterly ruined through the same methods he has taken to drive Camp Westmore to failure. In his Home town Worcester mass., or. Bancroft there Knovs As Wilfred a. Bailey is first reported to have been connected with tee a shredded wheat co.,�?� As stockholder and close Friend of shredded wheat a inventor and president of the company Henry d. Perkey. After the shredded wheat co., had moved to Niagara Falls or. Bailey remained in Massachusetts buying up the Stock at a very Low Price which he is said to have sold at a High figure to people of new York state thereby doubtless making for himself a Small Fortune. About this time it is said that Bailey had promoted and built the Worcester amp Southbridge Street railway and also a big summer hotel the hotel Outlook just outside of Worcester both of which Are said to have been utter failures. He is reported to have been ousted from the management of the latter because of at a special meeting of the congregational society tuesday evening c. E. Hamblet and George King a a were elected members of the trustees a Are Only sufficient to pay the Ordin to take the Ace off w. Coms Kary wars of common labourers after and r. P. Webster the Board now standing As follows c. E. Hamblet mrs. Batchelder George King mrs. Barrows and f. B. Tower. The question of incorporating the Church was referred to the committee having in charge the revising of the Church by Laws. So called next in line is reported a big farming proposition in Maine called a the Carrabassett c3o.�?� which met with the same financially disastrous results and a paper Mill proposition which went into bankruptcy. The paper Mill Bonds Are said to have been sold by Bailey and doubtless provided him with funds. Soon after this newspapers told of his arrest in his Home town Worcester and report four years served in jail for forgery with 18 months additional sentence for perjury. Working As his clerk was Frank Kemp who is alleged to have served a year in jail for perjury with Bailey. Or. Kemp was introduced last Winter in new York and in Newport and Barton As or. Franklin. He seems to be a very decent fellow but is apparently completely under the spell of Bailey a influence. After this a a Bancroft is recorded to have travelled under the name of a Callison Bailey a instead of Wilfred. He immediately been Selling Stock in an invention for Long distance transmission in of Telephone messages. In this alleged swindle which met failure with the others Many of the very Best Boston people were trapped and named on the Board of directors. Among others were leading Hanover people. It was at this time that Bailey became a Russell g. Bancroft a As he said in an attempt to Bury the past. There followed his interest in Camp Westmore and his meeting with mrs. Justis and her friends and or. Stone the contractor. What happened to All these other enterprises has happened to Camp Westmore. Bancroft is a very Cable and Clever Man in Many ways a most a xxx a xxxix to .x engaging talker and really seems to he expenses of keeping up i a mesmeric Powers in convincing a Veteran mail Carrier ple against their better judgment. He is said to have literally talked millions out of the pockets of investors and put them in he own pocket. He is very likeable and succeeds in making friends with the very persons he continued on Page three paying their 1 who carried mail Over the Southern Hills for some ten or twelve years stated to us that there was nothing in it not hardly a Good living and he was very much pleased to get out of
