THE MIDDLEBURY KEGISTER.
(KTOBER 11, 1912.
A recent city ordinance adopted in
Boston forbids the keeping of roosters
inside the city limits, says the Rutland
News. This has come of the new
movement againat unnecceesary noises.
Aa operating against roosters that in
sist upon crowing in wheezy falsetto at
such time as night workers wish to
sleep, the movement might very
properly extend 167 miles by rail north
west from Boston with prayerful and
Congressman Frank L. Greene has
resigned the editorship of the St.
Albans Messenger, which he has so
ably filled for the past ten years. Col.
Greene will be succeeded by John T.
Cushing, a successful young newspaper
man and forceful writer who has been
connected with the Messenger for some
time. The Vermont newspaper fra
ternity deeply regret the departure of
Col. Greene from the newspaper field,
but are sincerely glad to have the state
enjoy his services as congressman from
the first district of Vermont.
Sunday afternoon at the corner of
West and Grove streets, this city, at
the moment a West Rutland car, at the
usual stopping place of tho line, was
discharging and receiving passengors, a
big automobile, owned in Rutland and
containingonly the somewhat youthful
driver, turned from West street into
Grove street without any material
slacking of speed. The driver blew his
horn, one of those creations the sound
of which causes more people to stand in
their tracks under suspended animation
than to move out of the way. As the
big machine was about to run over a
woman and a little girl who were di
rectly in its path between the curbing
and the West Rutland car, the driver
got it under control. The escape of the
woman and little girl was sufliciently
near hairbreadth to make on-lookers
shiver. While "a miss may.be as good
as a mile" in things of this kind, it
does not look that way. At the cor
ner here referred to, there are many
narrow escapes every day. If automo
bile drivers will not be careful at such
places, the sooner an example is made
of one, the more remote will be the
mangling or killing of somebody.
It never does any one harm to meet
his fellows in whatever vocation he
may be engaged in for purposes of ex
changing ideas, says the Tribune
Farmer. There is an ancient maxim
that says "The day is lost in which we
have not learned something new."
This, no boubt, originated when the
only means of interchange of ideas and
thought was by means of meeting and
talkingwith one's neighbors. In this
age, however, with our numerous news
papers and weekly and monthly maga
zines loaded with good things, our tele
graph and telephone service and fast
trains, one would havo to be a hermit
indced who did not momentarily have
opportunity to hearandlearn something
The world has taken to spccializing
in every walk of life, and the individual
is required to keep in close touch with
his calling or something new will be
developed on lines of economy, and he
will very quickly lose out if not posted
to the minute. The National Dairy
Show at Chicago, October 24 to No-
vember 2 this year, will be filled with
new features for the dairyman and
farmer on all of the branches of the
dairy industry, and there will be thou

The suns of September, having
brought tho rosy blush to the cheek
of the apple, thc orchards are full of
harvesters, and the cheery rattle of
the plump fruit is heard in the barrels.
Tho apple crop has become one of
the largcr resources of Amcrican
farms, and the ho'.ds of many European
stc'amships are full of ,the fragrant
fruit on its way to fecd tho old world.
The old-fasliioned orchnrd was a
drenry swamp of untrimmed trces,
where, on ycars when tho cankor
worm wns taking a vacation, tho farm
er might get a barrel or two of fruit
from each tree. No ono cvor thought
of enriching the soil or of cultivating
nround the trees, any moro than you
would attempt to fertilize a tract of
scrub pines. If insect pests got ""at tho
trees, you no moro thought of getting
out to fight thom than to drive them
out of a tract of woodland.
Under modern sciontific spraying and
cultivation, tho apple has become tho
most importantsinglo cropon thousands
of farms. As thc prico of good fruit is
higher than it was years ago, the de
mand does not yet seem to be supplied.
Steep hillsides on which cattlo could
scarcely stand upright are turned from
waste land into lavish production, and
the farmer hands ovcr an inheritance
to his children that is just like a bank
account. Tribune Farmer.
Fancy Fruit Pays
"Outing" for October, says under
the caption, "A Real Orchardist,
Julian A. Dimock, author of "Outdoor
Photography," has taken upon himself
a double responsibility, a wife and an
apple orchard mcidentally he is
demonstrating to the farmers of Ver
mont that that state is one of the
greatcst in the Union in point of ap
ple growing possibilities.
Mr. Dimock's methods are out of
the well worn rut. His apples go di
rect to the consumer and are sold
through advertisements in current
magazines. The apples are all care
fully graded, packed in boxes of from
84 to 160 at a price of from ?2 to $3
a box. How many farmers in Ver
mont get three cents apiece
their best fruit?
Those who do not know Mr,
will be surprised to learn
man who is showing that
neod not be a step behind Oregon and
Washington in apple growing is not
to the manor born. As an illustrator
of magazine stories and books on out
door subjects, he has no superior. His
work has always stood in a class by
itself as his apple growing now does,
What he has done with apples, how
ever, can be duplicated by every farm
er in the state who will apply the
same amount of enterprise, foresight
and ingenuity, all qualities for which
Vermont has so long been nqted
Others have come into
the state and
showed profit in specialization.
Dodd writing in Outing on her expe
riences in sugaring in the Green
Mountain hills said, "We have per-
sistently followed every hint of better
methods until we have advanced the
pr ce of our product 400 per cent. We
sold our first year's sugar without
grading at 10 cents a pound. Now we
make three grades, soft sugar, cake
and cream in one pound boxes, and get
40 cents for the best."
Another specialization crop in Ver
mont, one as yet scarcely dreamed of
by the majority of farmers is that of
raising late season crops, especially
strawberries to come into market
when prices are high and juBt before
the produce has passed from consider
ation for another year. The farms on
higher altitudes in Vermont are ad
mirably adapted to catch the market
on this flood tide. Yet one will travel
far among them without seoing more
than hay and potatoes with an occa
sional field of oats. These are the
foundation upon which lumbering has
been carried on and now that so many
sections have given over lumbering,
the farms are going back to wild land.
Experiments have proved they could
be put to far better use.
The soil is unsurpassed in any
state of the Union. The climatc is
suitable for growing almost any crop.
Drought is unknown. Crowning this
is altitude, delaying maturity just long
enough to catch the crest of the wave
of high prices. It is like a special
privilege. Vermont is full of such
special privilege, unrecognized, un
claimed, even spurned.
In Vermont the advantages of soil,
cliraate, strategic location for agri
cultural specialization are combined
in a degree not found elsewhere.
When will the farmers of Vermont
awaken to their opportunity?
