H., Center St lauds explanation of Security act dear editor allow me to compliment those concerned for the enlightening and Lucid explanation of the a social Security act a which was published in the journal times very recently. Women especially seem to have much difficulty in understanding the current Laws and policies held in balance by our government. By Hibert Johnson a dream was the basis of a a murder Quot mystery for which two Brothers were sentenced to death in Vermont in 1819. Only the appearance of the a a victims saved one brother from the Gallows and the other from life imprisonment. The slow communications of that time made such a farce possible. A number of booms lived in Manchester vt., at the time of this Case there were Amos his brother Barney Barney s wife and the children of Barney Stephen Jesse and Sally. Russell Colvin was the husband of Sally Boom Colvin and the father of two children Lewis and Rufus. His mind was in a vague condition. had the habit of disappearing. On May to 1812, he disappeared and was not heard of for years without anyone being worried. The War of 1812 took up All interest. Amos describes dream. After the War rumours and supernatural revelations concerning the missing Man were mouthed. Uncle Amos dreamed that Russell Colvin came to his bedside and told him that he had been murdered and that the body was buried in an old cellar Hole Over which a House stood formerly. The Hole had been used to Bury potatoes but was now filled up no one has doubted that Amos dreamed the dream he described. The potato pit was opened and was found to contain a Large knife a pen knife and a Button. Mrs. Colvin identified the Large knife and the Button As her husband s. No one claimed the pen knife. A boy and his dog were near Barney Boom s farm when the dog began to dig near a hollow stump. A searching party was called and exploration yielded two toenails and a Cluster of Bones. Brothers Are arrested. A or. Salisburg had suffered amputation of a leg and his leg had been buried respectfully. The leg was dug up and compared with the Bones. It was decided that the Bones were not those of a human being but that the toenails undoubtedly were those of a Man. Jesse Boom was arrested and imprisoned. After the Bones proved not to be human he was about to be released when he murmured that the first time he had an idea his brother Stephen had murdered Colvin a was when he was Here last Jesse gave an account of a quarrel. A posse went 198 Miles a three Day trip to Denmark in Lewis county new York to bring Stephen Boom to Manchester in chains. Barney Boom was arrested As an accessory but was discharged after questioning. Jury indicts Brothers. In september the grand jury for Bennington vt., declared a that Stephen Boom of Manchester and Jesse Boom of the same place not having the fear of god before their eyes but being moved and daughter and songs but three states major slice of widow claim huge enter bitter fight to $80,000,000 Fortune estate collect which eccentric amassed by prodigies of Thrift. By Willis Thornton port Henry n. A the Hundred millions of Hetty Green who loved Money As other women love the memory of their first sweetheart Arr again being whips wed through the courts in a three Way Battle. Hetty s daughter and the widow of Hetty s son Are the principal claimants. But several states and the Federal government Are also Sharp on the Trail of a Little matter of $53,000,000 in taxes. Hetty Green died 20 years ago an aged woman forgotten even then by a new generation remembered by a former one Only As a synonym for miserly avarice. In june of last summer died her son Edward Howland Robinson Green. Despite lavish Ben fac registration is arranged Lions and expensive hobbies. Green left behind him some $80,-000,000 of the Hetty Green Fortune. At first it was believed that he left no will. The matter of taxes was vastly complicated by the fact that Green had maintained Homes in Texas Massachusetts and Florida. Which state was entitled to the taxes sister produces will. Then Green s sister mrs. Matthew Astor Wilks of new York came Forth with a will signed by her brother in 1908, Long before his marriage. It left everything to mrs. Wilks. And that was believed to be in line with the known wishes of the late Hetty who had a fanatical fear that some of her millions might get outside the family. Rabid was this fear of the Rich old woman that before she would allow either of her children to marry she tried to assure herself that Matthew Wilks and Mabel Harlow who married her daughter and son respectively Post office ready for so get no Are of Money that was for her blood descendants not for the families into which they married. In accordance with this phobia son Edward when he married Mabel Harlow secured Mabel a signature to an agreement to accept $625,000 and an s18,000-a-year annuity in return for renouncing All claims to the Green estate. Widow put up fight. But Mabel Harlow Green is now contesting this agreement in court in port Henry n. Y., claiming that she had no idea what she was signing when she put her name to it. She related that her husband took her to a new York Bank to see the Diamond encrusted electric train of Diamond Jim Brady and that while there she signed the agreement thinking it Only an arrangement for a pin mrs.
