Boston Daily Globe (Newspaper) - October 19, 1894, Boston, Massachusetts THE BOSTON DAILY GLOBE—FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1894. 3 A Well Attested Fact. Yea, you know all about it; of course you do; your mother made you take it; her ■ mother did the same with her; it was repulsive to your palate; you tried hard to escape it, and often said “I won’t;” but then that dose was castor oil, and possibly saved your life. Such has been its history for generations past. The scenes have changed since then; another stage is set. LAXOL Saves the Baby’s Life. M. Calm & Bro., N. Y. has the boards, and your baby plays a part: His lines are short and to the point. ‘‘Mamma, I want some mort' . That’s because he likes the taste, aud won*t he happy till he gets it. What he craves is LAXOh, a new product ofthe castor bean, made by a recently discovered process. It has all tile medicinal propel* ties of pure castor oil but, unlike that nauseaus dose, it is delicious to the taste and acts upon the sensitive tissues of baby’s delicate organs with a subtle sense of soothing gratefulness that may save your baby’s life. Ask your doctor. All Druggists, WIND HELPED THEM. THEY ARE NOT ARTISTS. f Hand Tubs Make Big Records at Peabody. ftoxburyi Make the Best Play and Get a I    5400    Cash Prize. Is 'Torrents and Union Vets of Peabody Get Second and Third Money. J PEABODY, Oct IS—Rockdale park was today the mecca of hundreds of fare fighters from all parts of the state, f as well as New Hampshire and Maine, 'the occasion being a tournament, in I which 17 hand engines were tested, and Trig records made. | The opening feature was a parade at ,10.30 a rn, in which there were seven veteran firemens associations and nine engines In line. There was only one band in the procession. Many of the firemen did not arrive In town until noon, and went directly to the park. The muster opened at 12.45 IP rn, upward of 3000 spectators being on the ground. The Judges were George Cushing of Hingham, Capt W. F. Martin of Hingham, Capt R W. Brigham of Hudson, Capt W. E. Cade of Cambridge, H. L>. Chase of Westboro and Capt Dow of {Boston. The prizes aggregated $1000, divided as ’ollows:    First prize $400, second $225, third $150, fourth $100, fifth $75, sixth $50. The platform where the engines iworked was on the right of the en-\rance. The hose, 250 feet in length,was Tun across the road leading to the track over a slight rise to the platform, to the ipipe on the left of the track. The playing board began at a point 150 feet from the pipe, and was 84 feet long, making the distance 234 feet. Each company was allowed 15 minutes to get in position, play and retire. The first tub to make the trial was the ►Phenix of Marblehead. Four trials were [made, the best play being 129 ft 9% in. The Phenix boys worked hard, but the Wind, which blew hard across the track, cut the streams into spray. I The next in line was the Roxbury tub, which was given six trials In all they made a distance of over 170 ft. On the 'sixth trial the wind carried the stream way over the paper, and landed large 'drops of aqua pura 218 ft 11% in from the starting line. A short time after a protest was entered against the Roxbury company, it being alleged that the engine played from the tank. The protest was not fav-; creel, however, by the Judges. The Torrents of Peabody took the • stand at 1.15 p rn and made five trials, covering in each over 180 feet. In on* trial a stream was thrown 216 ft % in. The wind favored the stream each trial. When the Nashua machine was placed In position the wind greatly assisted the firemen, and a stream was thrown 201 ft 11% in. At 2 n in the Watch City crew of Waltham drew in line. Her best play was 186 ft 4% in. When the White Angel of Salem drew In line the crowd got excited, as sentiment was about evenly divided on the capacity of the tub to defeat the Union of Peabody. On the first trial the wind favored the W'hite Angel stream, and a record of 207 ft 10% in was made. Four other trials were made, but owing to a change of the wind the streams were broken, the next best play being 192 ft lh in. The Essex tub made a record of 183 ft 7% in, and the M. A. Pickett tub of Marblehead played 201 ft 2% in. When the Unions of Peabody took the stand at 3.30 p m the crowd cheered themselves hoarse. Five trials were made, of which the third was the best, 208 feet 2% inches. When it was announced that the Unions had defeated the Saloma the unionites and their friends shouted and hugged each other, and ran about wild ■with Joy. The old Gerry tub of Marblehead made five trials, the best play being -177 feet 4% inches. I The Butcher Boy of South Braintree made five triuls, the second test proving the best in a play of 191 feet 7% Inches. The C. F. Burgess tub of Rockport, He, scored 202 feet IO inches, the Hyde Park veterans 179 feet 6% inches, the {Franklins of Essex 168 feet 6% inches, and the Kennebec of Brunswick, Me, 388 feet.

Sec Carlisle on Association Football Players. Opinion Was Asked by One Who Wished ..-JUSSX'* to Import a Team. Some Baltimore Players, it is Said, are Subject to Contract Law. WASHINGTON, Get 18-Considerable interest is manifested in treasurer circles over the statements that a number of the players in the Baltimore professional football team are Englishmen, and prior to their coming to the United States were engaged in professional football playing in England. In August of this year the treasury officials were asked if professional football players under contract would be allowed to land. The application came from Baltimore, from one who wished to import a complete English team to play in the United States. In answer to this request Sec Carlisle telegraphed as follows: "In the opinion of the department football players are not artists, and coming into the United States under contract would be prohibited from landing.” Whether these players now engaged by the Baltimore team are part of the players who desired to come into the United States in August last is not known at the treasury department, but the immigration bureau of the treasury department probably will lnveatigata the allegations made. BOSTON 4, NEW YORK 3. Fifty People Se® the Association Game in New York. NEW YORK, Oct 18—The New York and Boston professional association football teams met at the polo grounds today for the second time, and Boston won by a goal. Fifty people saw the game. Considerable trouble arose over the referees of the game, as the league has not appointed any one for this position, and durlnr ** first half today, on account of poor decisions given by Purdy, the first referee, another was substituted. Boston kicked off, and after hard playing, A. Jenkins kicked the first goal for Boston 20 minutes after the game started. After some excellent play by Connelly and Lupton, Boston took the ball on a foul. Sunderland kicked the second goal for Boston. Galloway made several shots for Boston’s goal, but missed. Finally Cooper, after a good stop, kicked New York’s first goal. The New York team, who had the ball most of the time, gave Galloway another chance to kick a goal, but he failed. In the second half, after a quick play by Cooper, Connelly kicked a goal for New York. The New York team kept the ball at Boston’s end, and twice Lupton attempted a goal, but failed, and Flynn did the same thing. After a scrimmage NewYork succeeded In scoring a goal and stood one point ahead, but as soon as the ball was placed in play again, Boston succeeded in getting it at New York’s end of the field, ana by bad defense Barlow scored for Boston. The ball was then played up and down the field, and by good defense McKay kept Boston from scoring a hard-earned goal. The teams both played sharply, and Just before the fame closed A. Jenkins scored another or Boston.

Oct 18-It does not look as though the sporting public in this vicinity were going to die of heart disease caused by over enthusiasm for the game of professional football. Still the game seems to be gaining In popularity in Brooklyn, for at Eastern park this afternoon 18 persons paid their way into the grounds. It was “Ladies’ day,” by Pres Byrnes’ order, and four youthful members of the fair sex were on hand to see the Brooklyns defeat the Philadelphlas. The Brooklyn players are anxious about their pay. They left good positions in Fall River to Join the league, and now it looks to them as though they would be left out in the cold. In spite of their anxiety, the Brooklyns played well and won the game.

REED’S Niff LIGHT; Not Anxious to Have a McKinley Tariff. He Discovers a Change in the Pale Sentiments. FEARED DESIGNS. His Views iii Accord with Democratic ideas. High Tariff Champion is Coming East. Smalley Thlnts Hill Will Win in New York. WASHINGTON, Od 18-The Interview reported with ex Speaker Reed in Ann Arbor, Mich, in which he said that conditions had changed so much during the last few years as to make many changes desirable in the McKinley law, is very pleasing to the democrats here. "If that Interview is accurate,” said Senator Faulkner, in discussing the subject this afternoon, “and I Judge that it is, since it accords with Mr Reed’s speeches, though going farther, he acknowledges the correctness of the democratic position. “The issue is one between McKinley-ism and the new law. Mr Reed, when he repudiates McKinleyism and advocates lower duties, Justifies the democratic position. “Reed knows very well that the people of this country do not want to return to the McKinley tariff law, and that there Is a popular demand for lower tarlif. The democrats have given the lower tariff, and Reed is only reluc tautly accepting the inevitable. “The public want a rest from tariff agitation; Mr Reed acknowledges that. This amounts to an acceptance of the present law. There cannot be another general revision of the tariff for a number of years. No democrats on the stump are advocating it. “From time to time imperfections In the new’ law, which are developed by its application, will be corrected by separate bills. Things that there Is a popular demand for will be done in separate measures, meeting individual cases. "The fight of the democrats is against McKinleyism, and when Mr Reed repudiates that he confesses Judgment in the case made against his party.” A. Maurice Low. SMALLEY'S POLITICAL VIEWS. He Thinks Hill Will be Elected Governor of New York. WASHINGTON, Oct 18 — Collector Smalley of Vermont was very busy today visiting the various bureaus of the treasury department and attending to the routine matters which had occasion I his trip to this city. It is probable that as one of the results of his visit the force employed in some of the divisions of his office at Burlington will be Increased, especially In that branch which has to do with the inspection of incoming Chinese. Asst Sec Hamlin and Mr Crowley, the supervising special agent, are preparing a new system for the purpose of more effectively carrying out the provisions of the exclusion law, and It will probably require the services of an enlarged force at each of the ports of entry used by the Mongolians. Mr Smalley expects to return to Burlington on Saturday. He says that the duties of his office have kept him so busily employed that he has had no time to devote to the study of politics. “I know less of the drift of political events now,” said he, “than I have for many years. I have been somewhat interested, however, in the situation in New York. “From all that I can learn, Hill is growing stronger there, and I hope and believe that he will be elected. He ought to be elected, for it was a very courageous thing he did when he assumed the leadership of that fight. “His candidacy, and the gallant fight. he is making, is rriore for the success of the party at large than for himself, and I do not see how any man who calls himself a democrat can bring himself to vote against him this year. “The democrats have much at stake in New York now, and if there was ever a time when they needed to settle up their differences among themselves, and stand shoulder to shoulder for party success, it Is this year.” Speaking of the congressional situation, Mr Smalley, who is the representative of Vermont on the democratic national committee, said: "I do not take much interest in the fight for a majority in congress. Here we have had a majority or nearly IOO, and yet Tom Reed practically ran the house. If he could do that with such a majority opposed to him what will prevent him doing the same with a smaller democratic majority? I for one would prefer that it should be a republican congress that he was running, rather than a democratic one. "The great evil we have been subjected to in recent congresses has been that of absenteeism. With the democrats in their seats they could have managed the affairs of the house, without leaving them to the management or mismanagement of the republican leader. “I suppose if I was living In a district represented by one of these democratic absentees I would do everything I could in a fight to reelect him, but I would take the occasion to say what I thought of his conduct.” Representative Apsley is now In charge of the republican congressional committee in the absence of chairman Babcock. Just before leaving, Mr Babcock gave out a statement of the claims he and his colleagues are making on the result of the congressional elections. He says that his present information leads him to anticipate the election of 190 republican members. He gives up the contest over the senate, and concedes that that body will remain democratic for the next two years at least. He says: "I do not think that we can hope to gain a majority in the serin: 3 this year. The democrats have 29 holdovers, while we have but 21, and I shall be quite satisfied to hold our own. That, I am convinced, we can do.” MCKINLEY IN NEW YORK. Ha Will Speak at Eight Meetings In Ona Day of Hi* Tour. NEW YORK, Oct 18 -At republican state headquarters this morning Sec Hackett Said that arrangements had been made for Gov McKinley’s tour in this state. The governor will begin his New York campaign on Oct 25, when he he will speak In the afternoon at Dunkirk. In the evening he will appear at a monster mass meeting in Buffalo.

Continued from the First Page. Q. Did you meet the late Dr Henry J. Bigelow? A. Yes. Q. Did you carry a letter from your sister to him? A. Yes; I delivered it to him at 52 Beacon st% Boston. I handed him the letter and told him it was from my sister. Q. Do you know that she received letters from Dr Bigelow from 1874 to 1878. A. Yes, she did. Mr Hadlock—How did you come to see Dr Henry J. Bigelow In the cool weather of 1889? A. My hand was shocked at that time, and at my sister’s suggestion I went to see Dr Bigelow. I told him my sister was very anxious about his health, and he said lf he could bear it she could. “I have provided for her,” he said. I said she had told me so, but that she still felt anxious for his health, and hoped that he might get better. He then said he had provided for her in the sum of $150,000 in case of his death. The witness was then cross-examined by Mr Hoar. Q. Have you ever stated to anybody that you never had any conversation with Dr Bigelow in reference to this case? A. No, sir. Q. Did you go to Mr H. M. Ayres in reference to this case’’ A. Yes, sir. Q. Did you tell him that you had never had any conversation at all with Dr Bigelow? A. No, sir, I never stated so. Q. Did you state that you knew noth.. ing of the promise on the part of Dr Bigelow to pay your sister $150,000, or any other sum? A. No, sir, I did not Q. Did you understand him to say that he had made provision for her? A. Yes, sir. Q. In case of his death? A. Yes, sir. Betsy Noyes Bartlett, mother of Miss Bartlett, was then helped to the witness stand by the plaintiff. She knew that her daughter made preparations for her marriage in 1878, but she was not married then or since. She did not know Dr Bigelow personally, but she knew of him, and he was very highly spoken of. Mr C. II. Bartlett, recalled, stated that he had malled letters to Dr Bigelow from his sister in Haverhill, Malden and Boston. This closed the plaintiff’s case. Mr Hoar then said he would move the court that the plaintiff be compelled to select which of the counts he would go to the Jury on. The case ought not to be permitted to go to the Jury on all the counts in the present state of the testimony. After some further argument Chief Justice Mason directed Mr Hadlock to select some one count on which he would elect to have the case go to the Jury. Mr Mr Hadlock (smiling)—I object, I except. I elect the fifth count. Judge Mason (smiling)— Very well, Mr Hadlock. Mr Hoar—Now, your honor, I ask you to rule that on this fifth count the plaintiff is not entitled to recover. This count was filed Sept 29, and in it the date of the alleged promise, as it has since been changed, is set down as May, 1887, instead of June of that same year. Chief Justice Mason in giving Judgment said the case of Chase against Fitz, of which Mr Hoar had spoken, contained language which tended to support the claim he had made, yet he was not aware of any distinct authority that would sustain the proposition, to his mind, and he could not readily adopt it. He would, therefore, rule that Mr Hoar’s motion could not be sustained. Mr Hoar asked that an exception be noted. Mr Hoar then proceeded to make the opening statement for the defense. He said: “If the date of the alleged promise had been fixed at any time subsequent to 1888 the court would not have allowed the case to go beyond the pleadings, for it would have been held that the promise must nave been in writing. “The claim here set up is for $150,000, and if you find for the plaintiff at all you can only find for that sum, with interest. If she does not sustain her case the defendant is entitled to a verdict. It is a question of $150,000 or nothing. “Very close relations existed between father and son. “In the seventies Dr Bigelow indulged in western speculations, so that he became financially embarrassed out of his own estate a sum of money over $135,-000, and with interest to over $160,000, which Dr Bigelow at that time had no means to pay. “His son directed that the notes be torn up, and that he should never be asked for the money. This was at the time that the plaintiff claims that Dr Bigelow was worth $1,000,000. “An income was also settled on him during his life, and the actual estate left by him at his death was less than $200,000, or less than the amount loaned him by his son. "He and his son had made wills by which each provided in his will that the other should benefit by hts death. In case his son did not survive him Dr Bigelow provided that the museum of Fine Arts, the college and hospital, with which he had been connected, should be the beneficiaries. “That will was made In 1882. In 1888 he made one codicil, and in 1889 another. At one time he feared his lungs were weak. Except for that he had been a very vigorous man. He met with an accident In 1887.” "The Inheritance of Dr Bigelow’s son, Dr William Sturgis Bigelow, came from his mother, who died In 1853. The relations between the father and son were of the most cordial and affectionate nature. “They always occupied the same room since his son’s boyhood, the only time they were separated being when the son was in Europe, and another time when he was in Japan. "Dr Bigelow had purchased the estate in Newton and built a house there, and we shall show by the architect and others that it was built with a special care for the welfare of his son, and the alterations made therein were suggested for the purpose of making matters pleasant for his son. “It was intended for bachelors, and It was never Intended that a woman should occupy any’part of It. “On July 23, 1887, be received an in-ury when he was out driving and fell. In, touring his head. He did not feel the effects for some days, when he began to grow unconscious, finally becoming totally so. “His son, who was in Vienna, was cabled to, and at once set out for home. His father rallied to such an extent on his arrival that it was possible to remove him to Newton sometime about the 1st of September. “Dr Bigelow was not able to attend to the furnishing of the house and he requested yofing Dr Bigelow to take charge of tho furnishing of the house, which he discharged with the assistance of some lady friends. “Dr Bigelow had a house at Tucka-muck, at which no ladies were ever known to go, though they sometimes visited at his Boston and Newton houses. "After the doctor’s death Miss Bartlett wrote to Dr Sturgis Bigelow asking an Interview. It will be shown that at that Interview she made no such claim as that which she now makes. Up to that time not a single member of Dr Bigelow's family, nobody connected with him, officially, socially or professionally knew anything of Miss Bartlett with one exception, which will appear later. "That exception was this: Dr Bigelow had received many letters from this lady, all of which he turned over to Mr Welch. He could not understand what she was up to, or what her intentions were. He was doubtful what her purposes or designs were, and so he went, to his old friend Mr Welch and laid the letters before him. “When his executors were confronted, after his death, with an indefinite proposition from her whether there was anything in the will for her or not, the executors referred her to Mr Welch. He alone was aware of her having any relations with Dr Bigelow in his lifetime What a World-Renowned Writer Ha* to Say About the Requirements of Modern Time*. Dr. Robert Farquharson, an eminent “She went and saw Mr Welch, not as ^English physician, has an interesting she says alone, but in the presence of another person, and we shall expect to prove by Mr Welch and that other person what took place at that interview. “She wanted to know whether there was any gift for her or provision made by Dr Bigelow, in his lifetime, for her, or if there was anything left for her by will. Mr Welch said there was neither, so far as he knew, and she said she expected that she would receive $2000 or $3000 by will from Dr Bigelow. “Her claim had a growth which was stimulated and nurtured by the condition of the statute under which the claim is brought. “It was impossible for her to have had an interview with Dr Bigelow at the time she says, except in the month of August. All the time from May till then Dr Bigelow was Inconscious, and incapacitated from seeing anybody. “After August he went to Newton, and was not accessible to her until after the period when the statute would debar her from recovering. “We shall show that when Mr Chaa. H. Bartlett, who has been examined here, went to see Mr Ayres, he said he knew nothing whatever personally of any promise to pay $15(5,000 to Miss Bartlett on the part of Dr Bigelow, or any other sum. “A proof that Dr Bigelow was not unmindful of his obligations was shown by the fact that he left the sum of $10,000 to Miss Slayton, a nurse who attended him in his last illness. He directed that it be deposited in the hands of Mr Edward W. Hooper, his old friend of 45 years’ standing, and one of his executors, and that it be deposited in the Massachusetts hospital life insurance company, the interest of which was to be given to Miss Slayton while she lived, and the disposition of the sum itself to be made by her in her will. “We shall show that her claim is inconsistent, and we ask that it be scrutinized with the greatest care, so that in forming your judgment upon the known conditions under which it could or could not have been made you will have everything which it is possible for us to show in order that you may form a proper judgment. “We ask that you shall not be swayed by the fact that the claim is made by a woman of dramatic power, of nerve and coolness and skill, who has testified to certain things which Bhe states were facts.” Nine witnesses for the defense were then called and sworn. A GREAT MAN’S WORDS plea for moderate drinking in Blackwood's Magazine. The doctor contends that under the stress and struggle of modern civilization few people beyond middle age are placed under normal physiological conditions, and he things that a little alcohol helps to round the corners and plane away the asperities of existence, He advises that alcohol be taken with food, and preferably at the principal meal of the day. The advice is also given that it be taken in the form of pure whiskey diluted. This he claims aids digestion, and tones up the system to a wonderful degree. Be sure, however, he adds, that only pure whiskey is used. “The maker of a pure whiskey deserves the gratitude of a nation.” The words of this eminent man need no endorsement. And they are just as true for America as England. The best physicians of the present day all agree upon this point, but they are very careful to say that the whiskey must be pure. There is also a universal agreement that Duffy’s Pure Malt is not only absolutely pure but the only medicinal whiskey upon the market. It has stood the test of time. It is the most popular preparation in America. It accomplishes what has not been and cannot be accomplished otherwise. Be very careful that your druggist or grocer gives you the genuine Duffy’*and under no circumstances take any other. Mr Henry M. Ayres, a lawyer, partner of Robert M. Morse, was the first witness. He testified that he had filed the original bill for Miss Bartlett, and had talked with Charles H. Bartlett in regard to the case, Mr Hadlock objected to the conversation being put in, as the conversation was privileged between a lawyer and his client. Thp question was admitted, subject to objection by Mr Hadlock. Q. What did Mr Bartlett say to you? A. I asked him if he had himself talked with Dr Bigelow as to his being engaged to his sister, or why he had not married his sister, or whether he had promised his sister that he would leave her anything on his death if they were not married, and I understood him to say that he had seen Dr Bigelow, but had not talked with him on these particular subjects. Cross-examined by Mr Hadlock—This was all you asked Mr Bartlett about? A. Yes. Q. When did you tell counsel on the other side what Mr Bartlett had told rou? A. I told Mr Hoar this morning, was summoned last night as a witness Q. Did anybody ask you about it previously? A. Yes; Mr Ring asked me. Q. Who is Mr Ring? A. I believe he is a claim agent of the Boston & Albany railroad. Q. Of which Mr Hoar is the counsel? A. Yes. Q. So as counsel for Miss Bartlett you stated what Mr Bartlett, her agent, had told you to opposing counsel? A. I did, sir. Mr Hadlock—That is all, sir. Edward W. Hooper was the next witness. He testified: “I am treasurer of Harvard college and knew Dr Henry J. Bigelow for more than 40 years. He was married to an aunt of mine. I was an executor of his will, and also his son’s will.** Q. Did you know whether Dr Bigelow about 1880 borrowed money from his son? A. Yes. He had been interested in some coal speculations in the west, and they turned out badly. He borrowed about $135,000, which with the interest amounted to about $166,000 up to 1880. Q. Do you know whether money was advanced to Dr Henry J. Bigelow by his son, Dr H. S. Bigelow? A. Yes, his affairs had been quite bad for years, and about that time looked hopeless. Q. Did Dr Henry Sturgis Bigelow direct you to cancel the notes held by you against his father? A. Yes, he directed me to cancel the notes, both principal and interest. That was, I think, about $114,000, from 1881 to 1890. I know that he was distressed in his mind in 1881, when he gave up his hospital work, as to how he would be able to provide for himself in his old age. Q. You wrere acquainted with the will of the father, Dr Jacob Bigelow? A. Yes y.‘ He dies Jan IO, 1879? A. I believe so. Dr Bigelow’s will was here offered as evidence. Mr Hooper stated that the personal property disposed of by Dr Bigelow’s w’ilf amounted to about $135,486. and real estate to the value of $121,500, and Identified an inventory shown him, of the property. The executors had charge only of the personal property. Evidence as to the provision for Miss Slayton was ruled out by the court, and an objection was noted on the request of Mr Hoar. Q. What was Dr Bigelow doing while at Newton, from 1887 to 1890? A. He was interested in horticulture, and giving good advice to his friends. He used to attend the meetings of the directors of the museum of fine arts. He was keen mentally, and sometimes well, and sometimes otherwise physically in those years. The witness said that the house at Newton had four chamber*, one for Dr Bigelow, the one adjoining for the nurse, Miss Slaton; a third for the wit-nea, and one for Dr Bigelow’s son. There was a peculiar chair in the doctor’s room, which seemed as though it would topple over when one sat in it. It was not one that a woman would care to sit on. Mr Hooper further described the Beacon st residence of Dr Bigelow, substantially as the other witnesses had done. Q. Was procrastination one of his habits? A. Not in important things. It was in small things, for he had not time to do everything. Q. Do you remember a picture of Napoleon at his Beacon st house? A. Very well. Q. Do you know Its history or value? A. No, I do not. Q. Did you turn over the property to the appraisers? A. No, I simply gave them a list of the property. Q. Do you know what Dr Bigelow’* income was in the last 20 years of his life? A. No. sir. The witness further stated in reply to Mr Hoar that he had never known of Miss Bartlett until after Dr Bigelow1* death. The relations between Dr Bigelow and his son were very affectionate. They were devoted to each other for life, pr Sturgis Bigelow gave up the medical profession when ne went to Japan. *’l bought the house 6ft Beacon st for Dr Bigelow's non, while he was a,way. by his father's direction.” The court adjourned to KSU a ut today.
