lodgings for the night in a small
village hotel. Seated about the oificc
were half a dozen villagers.
After tho .stranger had been eyed

Hohenzollon,. "What do people here

"Think ef him? He should be
clapped in jail, and hanged," rapped
out a sharp faced man fiercely.
"That's what I think of him."

One of the best things along edu
cational lines that has come to our
notice recently, and which has secur
ed a great deal of commendable pub
licity from newspapers and letters of
endorsement from' Business Organi
zations in the largest cities, is the
lecture and moving pictures on Retail
Merchandising that is being sent out
by Tha National Cash Beg. Co, of
Dayton, C. The Commercial Club has
been ivblc to secure this entertain
ment for the benefit of the merchants
and clerks of St. Johnsbury and it
will be presented at Pythian Had
Wednesday evening at 8."0 o'clock.
The title of the pictures is "The
Troubles of the Merchant and How
to Stop Them."' The feature film
was made by the Essanay Company,
at great expense, and is pronounced
one of the cleverest pieces of work
ever produced covering retail mer
chandising. Tho wide-awake business man to
day is rag?r to keep pace with the
latest ideas of storekeeping and bet
ter ideas in merchandising and these
pictures and lecture come to or city
at an opportune time. The lecture
covers: Retail failures ineir caus
es; store organisation; newspaper ad
vertising; window display; clerk's ef-
ueiency; selling mc'Jious; credit ousi
nesn; delivery problems, and system
in retail business.
Any one of these subjects would be
of went interest to the merchants
and clerks and the one in particular
which should receive favorable con
sideration from the business man to
ikiv is the value of newspaper adver
tising judiciously and constantly
used. The lecturer will give some
useful hints along these lines, as
well as other phase.; of efficiency me
thods that will be helpful to the mer
chant and clerk.
There will also be run a numerous
cartoon and altogether the program
will be one of the. most pleasing enter
tainments ever offered io our business
men.

WAITING FOR THE NEWS
Fort McPberson in Canada Hasn't
Heard that the War is Over
Edmonton, Alberta, Jan. 21
There will be no premature celebra
tion at For; Mcl'herson, Canada, 70
miles south of tho Arctic Ocean, for
Fort Mcl'herson will not know that
the war is ever until Jan. 20 or there

'returning soldier may find in Ver
iront an opportunity to acquire a
farm ready to occupy, with' land
cleared, which may be bought for
less mon:y than it would cost under
present conditions to make but a
portion of tho improvements which
have already been made. The com
mittee believes that the best proced
ure for Vermont is to take a census
of the farms which we have for sale,
preferably through the listers next
April, and to have the agricultural de
partment investigate such farms and
ascertain such facts about them as
prospective purchasers would desire j
to know. Then the publicity depart-!
ment of the slate should advertise
these farms in such a way that they
will be brought to the attention of the
icturning soldier and such assistance
in the way of advice on the part of tilt
slate should be given to the return
ing soldier so that he may secure a
good title to his land and so that he
will be located in such a way that
them will be a possibility for him to
succeed. Not only should tins oppor
tunity appeal to returning soldiers,
but. also to young farmers in the
West, where land has now reached a
very high pi ice. Land in Iowa sell
