In th golden glow of Sf ptemtxsr
the National Magazine brings forth
the Vermont issue. The September
issue, just out, contains over ninety
pages, with more than a hundred
illustrations of Vermcnt, the Green
Mountain State. The front cover is
an allegorical painting typifying the
rugged spirit of the "fighting Green
Mountain boys." The articles em
brace every phase of the state's
trrpntnpsa and will bo read with in
terest by Vermonters everywhere.
Tn "Affaira at Washington" there
is a touch of Vermont, calling atten
tion to the visions of vacation days
that absorb the mind3 of national
legislators in the grind of tariff and
financial bills. Peter MacQueen has
a rare story on "Peru nr.d the Open
ing of the Canal," written in the
flush of enthusiasm upon his return
from a visit to that country. "A
Charter Oak Senator," the story of
Senator Frank B Brandegee, is in
tensely interesting. "The Girl, the
Dollar and the Bull" is one of Will
Levington Comfort's splendid edi
torials. Excellent articles on a wide range
of interesting topics, snappy, whole-
Bome short stories, and a liberal
sprinkling of verse make up an issue
of the National that will be pr -served
because it is history down to the
minute of the state famous for "Men,
Maple Sugar and Marble."
