NEW TELE­PHONE POLES The noise caused by the vi­bra­tion of so many wires on the new tele­phone poles at Stanstead Plain in the night when the wind is blow­ing, is some­thing ter­ri­ble, and makes the walk hideous. For sev­eral days some of the wires of the Bell Tele­phone Com­pany in this place have been crossed or other­wise dis­ar­ranged ren­der­ing the in­stru­ments al­most use­less, The JOUR­NAL of­fice is among the un­for­tu­nate. PLANS FOR NEW BULD­ING ROCK IS­LAND Mr. John A. McGre­gor of Athol, Mass., Pres­i­dent of the Union Twist Drill Co., spent Wed­nes­day in town with Ar­chi­tect Charles Cham­ber­lain of Worces­ter, Mass., who has made plans for the pro­posed new build­ing at Rock Is­land. Stakes were set for the foun­da­tions yes­ter­day. A strong strata of gravel was found at a depth of about 30 inches be­low the sur­face of the ground on which the build­ing will be placed. This will save the com­pany a good deal of money as the build­ing will be a very heavy one and needs strong foot­ings.
