The mild weather has continued so
long this winter that it has reduced the
consumption of hard coal to the point
whpre the supply will more nearly meet
the demand, and unless the weather for
the rest of the winter is unusually se
vere and the cold continues far into
spring the shortage in supply caused by
last spring's strike will be made up.
The hews from the Pennsylvania coal
fields is that thereis now a normal sup
ply of coal. This should lead to a fall in
the price of coal next spring. Brattle
The Banker and Tradesman in a re
cent issue calls attention to the high
costof livingin the following manner:
"All this talk about reducing the cost
of living by the formation of leagues
and the use of the parcel post, comes
down to this: that the individual
who will expend a little intolligence
and time on saving a little money at a
time, can do it; those who are im
patient with the small things will con
tinue to find the cost of living high. It
would perhaps astonish most of those
who make so much fuss about the high
cost of everything, if they knew how
well and how cheap some families live
who are careful in their buying and in
the preparation of what they eat."
A judge the other day sent a New
YorK coal dealer to prison for giving
short weight. The driver was given
two ticke ts, one for 4,000 pounds for
the customer, the other for 3,000 pounds
for the city inspector. The cart had
1,000 pounds short of the two tons he
claimed to deliver. to the customer.
One-half ton of theft in an order of
two tons was a pretty decp cut. So the
iudtre fined the dealer $250 and sent
him to prison for twenty days. The
high price of coal, almost out of the
reach of the poor, makes its theft by
light weight peculinrly reprehensible.
Most men are honest, but the prisons
would not be large enough for all who
give light weight and short measure.
The few people who witnessed the
act of the young man who saved Mrs.
Frank W. Jackson of Liberty street,
Barre, as she was in danger of being
burned to death last Saturday say that
the deed of young Ernest Sprague was
about as remarkable display of presenco
of mind they ever witnessed and dono
withul as if it were a matter of course.
Mrs. Jackson had run out of the house
crying for aid and two women neigh
bors rushed to her assistance and tried
to extinguish the flames with a broom,
but all in vain. Just that moment a
milk team was driven around the cor
ner into the street, and the driver, see
ing the torrible plight of the woman,
reigned the team up to the curb and
without wasting a second in thought
ovor the course to pursue, grasped a
large can of milk from his cart and ran
to the place where the two women
neighbors were frantically trying to
battle with the upcreeping flames,
doused the endangered women with the
entire contents of the can; saw that the
work was successful and, without mak
ing anv remarks, returned to his team
and di jve along as if nothing out of the
usual run of his day's work had been
done. And yet, a minute more, and
the flames would have done their deadly
work! Barre Times.
My home was in St. Johnsbury, Vt.
That was my husband's home also. I
was born there July 9th, 1834, so you
see I am 78 years old. We came to
India in 1859. We sailed from Boston
on a sailing vessel April 16th and reach
ed Calcutta August 21st, a little more
than four months on the ocean without
landing anywhere. So I have been a
missionary more than 53 years. It has
been a very great privilege. When we
arrived there were very few Christians
in any of the missions. Dr. Butler's
work had been interrupted by the Sepoy
Rebellion and xhere were very few
Christians, less than a dozen, I think,
in our mission. I have lived to see the
number increased to more than two
hundred thousand. Weoften say, "Be-
hold what God hath wrought. To
Him be all the glory, we are but feeble
instruments in His hands."
You ask if I usud to eat maple sugar.
Much of my life was spent on a farm
and my father had a large maple grove
and it was said that he made the best
sugar in town. My brother-in-law
sends me a little cake by mail every
year. Uur sugar here is made irom
sugar cane. Itis very good, butdoes
not have as good a fiavor as the maple
sugar. It has ueen one ot our treats
when we have been at home to have
maple sugar. I think we only once had
it the old fashioned way on snow as
we were not there when there was
snow. We do not suffer for want (.f
the good things we used to have at
home. We have in these days good
comfortable houses and we have good
food. What we miss most is associa
tion with Christian friends at home.
I love the native people and the Chris
tians are very kind to me. I am the
only American among the million of
people in this district. There are a
few Government officials here two
English, a doctor and a judge with
their wives, so I am not altogether
shut olf from English society. My
work is all among natives and in the
native language. Our services are all
in the Hindustan language. I am glad
if my letters have interested the child
ren and the ladies in the church. Please
give them all my loving greetings and
thank them lor their prayers and what
they are doing to send the uospel to the
heathen. We will all work together
for the incoming of Christ's Kingdom in
the world. We may all be co-laborers
with our Saviour in this work. I am
! glad to tell the school girls of those who
are doing so much for them, often at
great sacrifice, and that it is expected
that they will labor for their heathen
sisters. Ihat is the object of our
school to teach and" train workers for
the needy fields about us. The work
here is hard, Satan has held the people
in bondage so long that it is hard for
the people to free themsolves from tho
bondage they have been in. But God's
promises are sure, and India is sure to
be the Lord's. I hope this will find you

Be it said to man's credit that this is
no longer true. Never before have
housewives found their labor so light.
No longer are they slaves to mending,
cleaning and cooking. Modern condi
tions have freed them from much of
this old-time drudgery.
A little article that has saved much
time and labor for the busy woman has
recently been introduced into this coun
try. This is the little Oxo Bouillon
Cube which has so rapidly become pop-
ular everywhere. At one time it tooK
several hours to make bouillon. Now
the up-to-date housewife drops an Oxo
bube into a cup, auus hot water, anu in
less than a minute is ready to serve a
steaming hot cup of delicious, savory
bouillon. Ard she doesn t have to

The Barre Times of Saturday, Janu

by Prof. McFarland delivered in that
city on Friday of last week:
"An interesting talk was given tho
members of Vincitia club at their club

McFarland of Middlebury college. The
speakers's topic was "Toilers of the
Sea,"andho described the life of the
fishermen ofl the Atlantic coast from
The Banner Savings

On the 4th day of October, 1912,
there were 702 depositors in the Hyde
Park Savings Bank .ho resided in
Hyde Park and the aggregate of their
deposits was more than a quarter of a
million dollais or, to be exact, $251,
081.59 and lne population of Hyde
Park at the last census was only 1453.
If there is another town in the State
of its size that can make such a won
derful showing we would like to know
it, and we will cheerlully give that
town a free notice commending Us
Think of it ! This means that near
ly every other, or second, man, woman
and child, infant, youth, middle-age
and aged person in Hyde Park, 702
out ol 1453, has an nverage deposit in
the Hyde Park Savings Bank of $357.
66. Thce is only one conclusion to be
drawn from this fact and that is
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 ln 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 laith in these man
agers by bestowing upon them a mea-;
sure of confidence and truht which is
very rarely found. We doubt if a par-
allel can be found anywhere.
These home depositors know that
ScifctlJ an(l not high rates ol inter
cst obtamed at far away points, is the
uniform and unvarying motto of their
home bank and believing its managers
to be absolutely trustworthy and safe
they make this bank the custodian of
their spaie dollars. Of course the
fact that the bank pays four per cent.

no more so than to depositors in
