Miss Margaret Kelly, reputed to be
the highe9t saleried woman employed
in the government service, is tobe mar
ried, according to reports from Wash
ington. Miss Kelly is a protege of
Charles S. Hamlin, who was assistant
secretary of the treasury under the late
President Cleveland. Through a rela
tive Mr. Hamlin was induced to secure
a position for Miss Kelly, andhe placed
her in the treasury department, so the
Btory goes.' From the start Miss Kelly
"made good" and has the distinction of J
being the only woman ever tobe in com-
plete charge of the U. S. mir.ts during
the absence of her superiors.
Gov. John A. Mead has named Wed
nesday, October 9, as Fire Prevention
Day. This is in compliance with the
request of the National Board of Fire
Underwriters, and the governor urges
the public, school authorities and heads
of other institutions to set aside this
day for the removal and cleaning up of
itll rubbish and materialwhich increases
risk of conflagration. He also urges
the adoption of means for fight
ing as well as preventing fires and tu
hold fire drills regularly and to provide
every means of safety. It is hoped that
the people will bear this in mind and
profit by the suggestions of the gov
ernor. A commission that has investigated
the high cost of living in New York city
flnds that it is due largely to the cost of
bringing the produce from the farm to
the city, from the railroad station to tho
wholesale house, from the wholesale
house to the store of the retailer, and
from the store to the home of the con
sumer with a trade profit at each step.
In this way potatoes that sell for seven-ty-five
cents in tho country are two dol
lars a bushel in the city to those who
buy them by the peck. Apples rot on the
ground in the country because there is
no demand for them at fifty cents a
bushel, yet at the fruit store in the city
they still for three cents apiece. This
New York commission recommends the
uniting of a large group of people in the
city in a purchasing agency and country
groups into rural selling agencies, so
that the producer and consumer may
deal directly'with each other, thuselim
inating the profits of the wholesaler
and retailer, and the cost of two trans
portations. Mirror and Farmer.
The Farm and Fireside, in a recent
issue, pays a high tribute to Dr. W. J.
McGee, who died on September 4, as
follows: "In Dr. McGee the world lost
a true soldier of the common good. For
many years he has been in the employ
of the scientific bureaus of the United
States Government in one capacity or
another. He was an ethnologist, a
geologist and an expert in a dozen
lines. But his best work has been done
since he reached the age of fifty. No
man was more potent in the great
conservation movcment than Doctor
McGee. A son of the common people
and self-educated, he devoted to tho
principlo that the earth on which we
liveisthe common inheritance of the
race, perhaps the most wonderful store
of knowledge possessed by any man of
his time. He was the quict, working
force back of tho more spectacular
demonstrntions of the conservation agi
tation. He was a true believer m the
common people of whom he was one,
and all his work was for them. The
nation and the world will be the better
for his having lived."
The Groton Times says: "Tho deer
hunting season will soon open and the
army of hunters will then tramp the
forest and fleld for a shot at the sly and
elusive deer, which to lovers of nature
lend enchantment and beauty to our for
ests and make our scenery doubly at
tractive. Hunting with the high-
powered rifles now made, keeps up tho
Jist of slaughtered deer from year to year
nnd decreascs the number of these
nnimals, nnd it is only a qucstion of
time when Vermont yill be without
these bcnutiful creatures. If hunters
would follow the chase lawfully, the
decrease would not be so marked. To
day the custom prevnils, in many local
itics, of shooting at first sight of a
deer and if the animnl shot is not law
ful, to leave the carcass and continue
the sport (7) untilalawfuldeeris killed
or the season closes.
"Tho indiscriminate shooting ofdoes
and fawns should be discouraged by the
enforcement of our gamo laws and the
only way to do this systematically is to
have the leRislnture provide means to
pay for a well orp;anized force of game
wardens. If the State is to continue
the care and protection of the deer,
this must be brought about or their
cxtermination will be only a question
Increaslng Pay to Farm Help
A contributor to the current issue of
Farm and Fireside, says that the time is
coming when farmers will have .to in
crease the wages of their help. Follow-
ing is an extract:
"There is ono phase.of the question
that the farmers rarely touch on in
speaking of farm-labor difliculties, and
that is the wage problem. Back as far
as 1870 farmers were paying about as
much for hired men as they are now, yet
nobody ever seems to take into consid
eration the lact that if ibetter wages
were paid youngmen mightbeattracted
to the farms
In my childhood a neighbor of ours
who needed a man the year around, paid
a young capabie Inrmer one dollar per
day, furnished him house-rent, fuel,
chickens, cow, pig and garden, and con-
sidered himself fortunate to have him.
That is aboutlasjmuch as the married
laborer can getjnow, and of ten farmers
deduct for holidays and stormy periods
when there is only the feeding on hand,
Personally, I know of graduatesof agri
cultural schools being offered only twen-
ty-five dollars and board permonth, the
same wages paid to untrained and un
taugnt worKers. un our own tarm a
young college student (not an agricul
tural student) worked last summer for
twenty dollars per month and board, and
was well pleased to get it. To be sure,
he was only a boy, and a boy with sev
eral fingers ofT one hand, which rather
handicapped him, but he was faithful,
honest and intelligent. He set his own
price andsaid heneverearned that much
before. In my childhood my faaher paid
a man twenty dollars per month and
kept a horse for him, putting up with
various tribulations in the way of much
running to town and staying out nights,
Careful inquiry among our neighbors
revealed the factthat twenty dollars per
month is considered a fair price for
young and lnexpenenced farm-hand,
with one dollar per day on working
days for a grown man.
"Now two hundred and forty dollars
per year doesn't look very attractive to
the average youth, oven if living is
thrown in. Tho time was when a young
man could pay attention to a young lady
without very much expense, but that
time is past. Entertainments, suppers,
lectures and all forms of amusement
have doubled in price, but the wages
have remained stationary. And when
the young man bcgins to think of set-
ting up a home of his own, what can he
do with the savingi of two hundred and
forty dollars per year? It is no wonder
the sons of farmers take to town as
soon as they are old enough to work.'
Gov. John A. Mead has issued the
following proclamation for the observ
ance of a fire prevention day, as re
quested by the National Board of Fire
ine immense anu steadily lncreasing
fire losses in our state and nation are
and should be the only nrgument neces
sary to stimulatc our people to an active
campaign to eliminate or largely reduce
this burdensome and total waste of life
inenve mutuai lire msurance com
panies of our state alone during the
year ending August 1, 1911, paid to
their policy holders and for expenses
$51G,580, and for the year ending
August 1, 1912, these same five com
panies paid for the same purposes $537,
az, snowing an increase ot over
$21,000 in these mutuai companies
alone. Add to the above the losses
sustained by the stock companies in
Vermont and the aggregate loss will
largely exceed one million of dollars
annually in Vermont.
The aggregate loss of property in our
country for the year of'1911 was in
excess of $217,000,000, over $3,000,000
in excess of the fire losses of 1910, and
in aciiimon, in iuiu neariy 7oU persons
died in buildings destroyed by fire and
neariy 4200 lost their lives as the
result of burns, and when it is estimated
that many of these lives and fully
$150,000,000 of this loss of property is
due to carelessness and should have
been prevented, this subject should ap
pcal to us as one surely of great import
ine Bocini as weu as tne economic
welfare of our people is ever improved
through educational methods and thus
it has seemed advisable to call the
attention of the citizens of our state to
those conditions which are permitting
this immense loss and urge them to
carefully consider those methods which
should surely prevent one-half of this
waste of life and property.
Believing that the welfare of Ver
mont so demands, I, John A. Mead,
Governor.'do hereby designate Wednes-
day, the 9th day of October, A. D. 1912,
as Fire Prevention Day, and do hereby
call upon our people to devote the day
to inspecting their buildings and prem-
iscs, thoroughly removing all unsightiy
and combustible matcrial, to carefully
repairing and cleaning all parts of their
heating apparatus. All soot and nshes
should be removed. rendering the same
safe for winter use. Boards of educa-
tion should personnlly examine the
institutions in their charge. City and
village authorities should cooperate
with them and with the public gener-
ally in the adoption and enforcement of
such rules and regulations as will pre
vent.this cnormous and constant drain
upon the resources of our state. The
superintcndents and teachers of our
schools should carefully consider this
eminent danger. Fire drills should be
had regularly and every means of safety
provided. I invite the public press to
take an active part in awakening the
public to the importance of this move-
ment and impress upon every individual
a sense of responsibility to his neighbor
and himself, to the end that the loss of
life and property by fire may be reduced
to a minimum.
Let us remembcr that our per capita
oss annually by fire in Vermont is
$2.96, twenty-five per cent. higher
than the average per capita loss in the
United States, nine times as large as
that of the average per capita loss of
the five leading nations of Europe.
As another has said, "America is a
nation of money makers Europe a
nation of money savers. America
figures that the most important thing
is to make a dollar Europe, that it is
equally important to save one.
"America regards a fire as a misfor-
tune and one sympathizcs with the man
who has had one Europe regards a fire
as the result of a crime, and they inves
tigate and if possible punish the man
who is guilty.
"We figure that the insurance com
pany restores the loss they, that the
insurance company indemnifies the
owner for a loss, which can never be
restored. Our supreme efiort is to
extinguish fires theirs, to prevent
"We are losing a fortune every day
they are saving one."
Should we not, then, endeavor to
profit by their example, the result of
two thousand years of experience.
Given under my hand and the great
seal of the State, this twenty-seventh
day of September, in the year ot our
Lord, one thousand nine hundred and
twelve, and of the independence of the
United States, the one hundred and

paved in y life. I suflered more or Ipsb
from kidney complaint for neariy twenty
years. The first nyinptom was rheumu

and painful in pa6sane and unnatural.
IuilHininatlon of the bladder also existed

no relief from the treatment of local
doctors, I went to Burlington to see

in fact, wns so helplesa I could hardly
walk. Finnlly a comrade urged me to
try Doan'ti Kidney Pills, nnd 1 went to
Sheldoii'a Drug Store and got a supply.
They helped me right awny. I notlced
