SCOTT'S EMULSION is not a

The state of New York thinks it
very remarkable fact that it has seven
livincr ex-irovernors. Vermont has
thirteen of them : Stewart, Barstow,
Pingree, Ormsbue, DillinKham, I'age,
Woodbury, Grout, Smith, Stickney,
McCulloufrh, Prouty and Mead. The
former state beats us, however, in that
among its number are two ex-vice pres-
idents and one ex-president. The best
that we can do is one ex-congressman
and one ex-United States senator,
Stewart, and two present United States
senators Dillingham and Page. Mor

yards of dark print like sample and a
mop wringer, and please, she would pay

patron more thritty enclosed a dollar
bill for which she desired the carrier to
bring her two boxes of patent medicine

The death at the ripe age of eighty
seven of Mrs. Julia C. R. Dorr of Rut
land removes the noble woman who was
recognized in the literary world as
Vermont's most gifted poetess. If she
had been less a poet, she might have
become more famous as an author of
prose, especially as a novelist, for in
her earlier life she wrote a number of
works of fiction that won wide-spread
recognition for her as a billiant novel
ist. As years went by Mrs. Dorr was
moved more and more by the inspira-
tion of the muse, and in the course of
time her beautiful sentiments came to
find expression principally in poetic
form. Mrs. Dorr's "Poems," "After
noon Songs," and other poetic works
breathe the sweet spirit which animat-
ed her and reflect her unflagging love of
Vermont as well as the beautiful home
life which characterized her as a wife
and as a mother. Burlington Free

The performance was marvelous, if
not particularly useful. If the words

An examination of fortychildren from
two public schools in New York city
show some striking results. Thc forty
pupils examined were the worst that
could bu found in tho two schools;
eighteen of them being so stupid that
they wcre in ungraded classes, eleven
were so stupid that they required three
terms to do the work of one term and
eleven were delinquent. All of the
forty childrcn had defective vision.
They were fitted with proper glasses
and after six months it was found that
thirty-two of them had madc astonish-
mg progress. These tlnrty-two were
under as many difTcrent teachers. A
report of this work has been made to
the board of education recommending
that the entire care of the school chil-
dren, mental, moral and physical, bc
vested in one department with a single
head and that that should be the board
of education, that a suflicient number
of doctors be trained to dcal with all
defects of school childrcn who are at
present in the category of ungraded,
backward or disciplininary cases; thnt
any child whose work is unsatisfactory
for one term should be examined and
all defects of structure and habit cor
rected as far as possible. A report of
the work appears in a recent number ot
The Journal of the American Medical

Of friends I lost in other days,
When I am gone shall I be missed,

I doubt if others think the same,
Or even wish to share my thought,

Do all the good that you can do,
Someone will know thy place is blank,

New Possibilities of Marble.
The question what to do with the
enormous nuantities ot waste in con-
nection with quarries in the marble and
grunito quarries of Vermont is gradu-
illy being solved, and waste-so-called
may become a very valuable by-product.
It is announced that a company capi
talized at $75,000 and composed of Con
necticut men has leased the "Ilog s
Back" in West Stockbridge, Mass.',
through which runs an extensive vein
of marble, and will establish an exten
sive plant for the grinding and market
ing of marble dust in large quantities
to thc building trade. The plant will be
expected to turn out 150 barrels of mar
ble dust a day at theoutsetand will em
ploy 150 men.
It is a well known fact that in many
sections of Vermont the marble de
posits are useless for purposes of
quarrying on account of numerous
seams and other defects, but there
would seem to be no good reason why
such deposits should not be available
for the manufacture of marble dust,
which in these days of extensive use of
artificial stone, must rapidly increase in
If this should prove to be the case,
the marble deposits of Vermont would
be practically inexhaustible. The ex
tent of Vermont's deposits of marble
is emphasizedin a bulletin just issued
by the Geological Survey, dealing with
all the quarries in operation in this
State in 1910, and considering the light
marbles of Bennington, Rutland and
Addison counties, as well as the red
dish dolmite marble quarned in Swan
ton and the black marble secured on
Isle La Motte.
According to the author of the bul
letin, T. Nelson Dale, the construction
al marbles of Vermont range from the
coarse whiteish stones of South Dor
set and the milk-white and cream
tinted stones of Dorset mountain to
the mottled marbles of Green Peak,
Pittsford, Proctor, and Brandon, and
the medium bluish gray marbles of
the Albertpon, Florentine. and True
Blue quarries. These graphitic mar
bles are particularly well-suited for
rock-fa'ced constructionin thesoot-laden
atmosphere of cities. where white mar
bles become streaked in a very short
time. They are also much in demand
for electric switchboards on account of
their content of graphite and their lack
Tho range of marbles suitable for
interior decoration is very wido, includ
ing the various tinted West Rutland
marbles, tho "Champlain marbles, the
sorpentine of Roxbury, nnd the dark
emerald green chroine mien schist of
Shrewsbury. Tho fine-grained dolomie
marbles of Pittsford, at present unused,
from their fino quartz veining and
thin bedding can hardly be expected to
furnish many large Blabs, but nre very
well adaptcd for mosaic work and ter-
Mnny of tho marbles of Vermont
have been used in the construction in
wholo or in part. of noted buildings in
this country, including tho New York

The most improved marble mill in the

has a capacity for C0 gangs of marble i

The Banner Savings
Bank Town of
On the 4th day of October, 191 2,
there were 702 depositois in the Hyde

Hyde Park and the aggregate of their
deposits was more than a quarter of a
million dollars or, to be exact, S251,

and child, infant, youth, middle-age
and aged nerson in Hyde Park, 702
out of 1453, has an nverage deposit in

There is only one conclusion to be
drawn from this fact and that
that the people of Hyde Park, who
know all about the men who manage
the Hyde Park Savings Bank, have un
limited faith and confidence In them.
They know, from close contact with
them and as their nearest neighbors,
all about their i.abits, characteristics,
idiosincracies business abilities, conser
vatism and banking methods, and they
show their implicit faith in thes.e man
agers by bestowing upon them a nica
sure of confidence and trust which is
very rarely found. We doubt if a par
allel can be found anywhtre.
These home depositors know that

uniform and unvarying motto of their

to be absolutely trustworthy and safe
they make this bank the custodian of

fact that the bank pays four per cent.
