Present Conditions Working
Force Cut One-Third and No
Improvement in Sight
Tho chaotic condition of business over
the country hits begun to niatcrlnll.v
affect Wlnooskl and Burlington through
the curtailment In production of the
American Woolen company, which nt the
present time la doing about two-thirds of

In a short time. The principal reason is
that the manufacturers cannot get tho
price for their goods which It would cost
under present conditions to produce them
and therefore they arc letting down.
How long this condition will last Is
problematical, but there are few who see
any Indications of Improvement for some
tlmo to come.
The American Woolen company, which
with the exception of a few weeks directly
following the signing of tho armistice, has
operated night and day to capacity for
several years and through the immense
sums paid to employes contributed to
tho prosperity of Wlnooskl and Burling
ton, has cut its force to two-thirds th
former size and the pay roll has there
fore been diminished from ?60,000 weekly,
the largest ever paid In Vermont by a
single concern, to" W0.OO0. Business con
tinues to slack and many are laid off
daily, with no Immediate prospects of
There is nothing peculiar to this mill
In this connection, as the conditions arc
tho same all over the world. Small mills
In Vermont employing less than a hundred
hands have stopped production, and In
every industrial center, small and large.
In the United States, help is being laid
off In smalt and large numbers. The
tremendous cancellation of orders and
refusal to accept shipments growing out
of the uncertain state of affairs ts the
reason, for only a short time ago busi
ness on the books of the different woolen
mills made the outlook good for a con
tinuance of the record business for some
time to come.
Tho same situation is true In England,
where a great slump has occurred In Lon
don, and In the West, where the wool
growers are trying frantically to escape
disaster. The market has simply backed
up on woolen goods and this mill, llko
the others, will have to take Its medl
The result of laying oft help In Wlnooskl
has already been felt by the other con
cerns in the city who have suffered from
a help shortage. At one mill yesterday 30
people applied for work. This mill has
been operating with only two-thirds the
force needed because the help could not
be secured. The same is true to a lesser
extent of other mills in the city. The
farmers are rejoicing over the situation
and see in it at least a partial solution
of the help problem which had become
their greatest source of trouble. Up to
now there has been no exodus of people
from this locality and It is not tellevcd
there will be, as the help can be
assimilated here as well as anywhere
else, and probably better,
At tho Queen City Cotton mill, the plant
continues to operate to capacity, as it
has for the past few years with tho
exception of a brief period following the
signing of the armistice. A. M. Young,
treasurer, stated yesterday that there
was no prospect of a curtailment in the.
Immediate future but that there was no
market for goods at present. The. mill
Is busy on orders which have been taken.
The market Is at a standstill when It
comes to orders for future delivery or
tho disposal of any surplus stock which
may accumulate. This mill employes
about f23 people.
A. E. Wade, superintendent of the
f'hace mills, when interviewed by a Free
Press man yesterday, said that he could
sec nothing alarming in the situation at
present. The mills are doing a good busi
ness and while silks, woolen and leather
have fallen way off, spot cotton Is still
up. The products of his mills continue to
Hnd a market nnd he felt optimistic re
garding the situation.

located tho father and motile.;-, brothers
and sister of his wife, of whom they hHd
been unable to learn anything Blnco tho
vory outbreak of the war, when tho Ger
mans began the Invasion of Russia.
Kersohner has tried every known mcani
of learning whether tho family of his
wife was livlug or dead, without success
until Tuesday, when two letters arrlwL
Tne letters contained the information
that th parents, Mr. and Mrs. Israel
Order, children and grandchildren, wore
living in some of the trenches which had
been used by tho different armies. They
had for food buckwheat, which is now
selling for seven dollars per pound, In
the money of Russia. At that it Is diffi
cult to get enough to aartalr, lite.
Before the war, Mr. Order was a pros
perous shoemaker and the other members
of the family had plenty with some sur
plus capital. At the very outset of the
war. the village In which they live, about
18 miles from Kovel, was totally destroy
ed by tho bombardment and from that
day six years ago until the present they
had not had anything that could be call
ed a home. They have roamed from ono
placo to another and havo been driven
for hundred of miles by the retreating
armies, but through It all, the family
remained Intact and all survive.
Kerschner will go after thorn personally
as he can get no guarantee that monoy
sent to them ever will reach tbcm under
the present unsettled conditions, or that
tho old people could get to this country.
Ho estimates that it will take about two
months to make the trip over and return.
SERVICE AND SACRIFICE
Prt-arnt-Iay Nred of Both, Snjn lie v.
S. 11. Watklna In Memorial Sermon
At the memorial service at St. Paul's
Church Sunday evening for members ot
the Odd Fellows and Robckahs who
have died stneo last memorial day, the
Rev. S. Halstcad Watklns delivered a
sermon on the value of service and sa
crlflco In the present day.
"There Is a danger to-day," said Mr.
Watklns, "that the beautiful Ideal of
manhood and womanhood will be lost.
The words that should receive the
most stress to-day are those of serv
ice and sacrifice. There are those who
are searching for ease rather than
service and for self-indulgence rather
than sacrifice. The life to-day that is
going to be worth while Is tho life of
service nnd sacrifice.
"Let us think at this memorial sen1
ice of the real meaning and value of
these two characteristics of the ideal
man. Service, what It It? Work, faith
ful work. Jesus said 'I must work' and
no ono will question that He did work
and work hard from early childhood
when He helped his father in the car
ponter shop until the great sacrifice,
and tho keynote of to-day should be
work. Too many people think of work
ns unworthy. It would be well If more
people would realize tho dignity and
need of work. Labor is not a curse but
a blessing, the example of Him who
came not bo ministered unto but to
"The motive of work should not bo
gfaln but service. There are thousands
of people starving and yet tho fields
arc calling for laborers nnd they
should be filled with men and women
so thoy could produce, with God's help.
that which will feed tho starving.
"As for sacrifice. Tho definition I
would give for sacrifice is the offer
Ing of self without counting the cost.
Work is duty but sacrifice Is volunt
ary. If we aro working because we feel
an obligation to God nnd man, well
enough, but there is something higher
and sweeter. What Is our Ideal of
friendship? Not that spirit of self-ad-vancoment
that seeks friemds for his
own benefit, but tho spirit of those
who want to pour out their manhood
or their womanhood In service. Love
Is tho joy of giving.
"Thoso we remomber in affection
are those who have In some way re
flected the llfo of Christ. What do you
remember about thoso who havo gone
from your midst, thoso In whose mem
ory wo aro holding this service? Not
their worldly wealth but that In their
character which has the groateat like
ness to the Great Life."
The following are those who have
died since last memorial day and for
whom tho servico was held: From
Green Mountain Txdgo No. L Frank 15.
