The circulation of books and maga

'14 per cent non-fictioh, 23 per cent.
was juvenile. Tlio largest circulation

circulation of non-fiction. The fines for
the year amounted to $93.47. The num

from 871"Janunry 31st, 1912, to 1300.
The reading table has been supplicd
with 13 papers and magnzines.

have availed thernselves of the privilege
of taking these magar.ines to their

since Febiuary 1st, 1912, is 417. Of
this numbcr nine were given to the
library, twpnty-two replaced worn out
books and eight replaced books that
had boen lost. Tho libriry now has
790 volumes. The jnventory taken in

the installation of the Newark system.
The number of books mended during the

I At the request of the library board
' a second traveling library has been
placedby the state in the Case street

been received it has undoubtedly met
with the same success as the first

' have taken several books at once from
1 the library for the use of their schools
and have reported that their pupils were

better ventilated. If this larger room
were provided more eiiicient service

The following is a (letailed report of
the'delegates to the confcrence of the
Boy Scouts held at White River Junc
tion: CKOUP CONKnitENCES.
Snturday nfternoon tho delegates
formed into five group conferences. In
the Baptist church were tho farm bovs,
presided over by Prof. O. A. Morton of
Amherst, Mass., and W. Edward
Davies of White River Junction. Mem-
bers of church clubs, adult leaders and
pastors with Mr. Whitcome, leador,
and Boy Scouts under Mr. Loomis' di
rection. In the Congregntional church, Mr.
Howe was in charge of the high and
preparatory school etutlents and Dr.
Fisher for members of the boys' de-
partments Young Men's Christian asso
Mr. Loomis spoke on scouting nnd of
neeessary cooperation. The most im-
portant thing is patrol leadership and
the leader should accept the actual re
sponsibifity. Hikes, camps and other
features were touched upon. There
were 20 patrol leaders l'rom different
towns that made reports of the past
year. Mr. Lcomis clos- j the n" eting
by telling what tho Boy Scouts Council
of Boston were doing toward stopping
nnd preventing forest fires, distributing
literature pertaining to health, and
volunteer guides in parks.
Prof. Morton gave ideas on corn con
tests and forming as a new profession
and urged the boys to take up teaching
as a life work.
Saturday evening Dr. Fisher spoke on
"Clean Sports." He said "that there
are three points of view in sports,
physical, social and charaater. And if
we play as a child does these will be
used spontaneously. Victory should
not be considered an honor."
Prof. Morton of Amherst, Mass., gave
an interesting stereopticon lecture and
the clear, colored pictures finely illus
trated his words on a "More Practical
Education for Farm Boys." Prof.
Morton claimed the public school sys
tem, at least in rural communities, fails
to meet the demands. He showed dif
ferent types of industry taken up by
boys and girls, such as basket weaving
and city garriening.
The mass meeting was conducted by
Mr. Whitcome and his subject was
"The Needs of Young Men." He said
"that there weru four sins common to
young men which should need attention,
dishonesty, intemperance, impurity and
selfishness. About 50 young men re
mained after this meeting and said they
would follow the Christian life.
The evening meeting was conducted
by Dr. Fisher and Mr. Hinckley.
Fisher spoke on what constitutes the
boy's strength and power. "A boy,"
he said, "has tfemendous power through
the affection of his loved ones, in his
capacity to make friends, and by being
a real boy.
The final business of the confcrence
was then transacted. The reports of
credential committee and resolutions
committees were read and adopted.
Mr. Hinckley gave the closing address,
"Three Things About Boys." He said,
"it was every boys duty to remember
his Creator in the days of his youth; to
fight your battles with your own nrm,
and be willing to stand alone if neses
sary. Everybody then held hold of hnnds
and sung "Blessed be the Tie That
Binds." At 8:40 the president pro
nounccd the confcrence at an end.
After a pleasant ride to Bellows Falls
and a fast trip on the six mile electric
cris-cross from Bellows Falls to Saxtons
River we arrived at our destination. !
Our delegation numbered eight so we
constituted about one-thirty-fifth of the
number present. '
Tbe first thing on the program was a
banquet in the two churches. We j
certainly were not sorry to begin in ,
that way and tried hard to do credit to '
the standing reputation of Vermont ap
petites. After supper we went to
Fuller Hall V. A. The principle of the
ncademy gave us a most hearty wel-1
come in behalf of Saxtons River also j
Scout Kenneth Earle, a former Middle
bury boy, gave n sincere welcome,
representing the town troup of Scouts. "j
Arthur W. Howe, the famous Yale
football man, gave a short talk in 1
which he pointed to tho fact that foot
ball is like life in that you need the '
same good qualities to lend a useful life
that are required to play a game of
football. He said that he had come
into contact with fellows wbo thought
that religion was effeminutu and not for
a true man. Mr. Howe said thut tbo
only proof against that view wus that
all,of the great men of our nation or of
any nation have been Christian at
heart. If they didn't acknowledge re
ligion they unconsciously followcii its
course by their actions. The main ad
dress of the evening was by G. W. i
Hinckly of Hinckly, Me. His themo, I
"The Old Call", was based on .the fnct ,
that God does not call every one in the ,
same way or perhaps by name but we ,
may De uisobcymg or turning away
from his call by throwing nway oppor
tunities of helping our fellows nnd de
Saturday morningsaw all of the fel
lows assembled once more in the Bap
tist church. Mr. O. E. Loomis of Bos-
We have on hand a fine

ton spoke to us on "Believing and Do
ing." He said that it is perfectiy
natural to doubt and that nobody should
be blamed for doubting until there is
proof enough against thnt doubt to
banish it. Also a fellow should be care
ful in choosing his belief, to understand
it and to believe in it. A belief not
backcd by one's own determination and
resolve is useless. A belief is worao
than no belief unless it is put in prac
tice continually. As proof of this influ
ence he told this incidence: A slum
worker had a band of tramps which he
gathered nearly every night and talked
to about their faults. He noticed ono
night that one was missing; he didn't
see that man for a month. At the end
of that time he came to the worker and
said, "Sir, I have followed you every
where, at all times for a month and 1
have tested my faith thoroughly in
what you say and in you. I now intend
to practice an outline myself with the
same persistency that vou use and I
hope that I can be revived. What
caused this decision? Tbe power of the
teacher's life. A. W. Howe next gavo
us a fine speech on "Tho Older Boy's
Relation to His School." He men
tioned three groups of fellows: Those
just good enough not to be fircd, those
that ought to be fired and those who
try to make good. The lns-t bunch is
the group that adds to the reputation
of the school. He said if a man is a
Christian he will be strongj r and he
will be a man. Immedintely after this
we were limbered up somcwhat by the
directions of Dr. G. J. Fii-hcr. who told
us that we would be classed as good
gym. candidates if we could touch the
floor with our heads by bending back
ward if we did not grunt in the effort.
We all tried and of course indulged in a
short sentence of pig language. He
proved by many examples that. if we
all would cooperate and have a brother
ly spirit toward those who are less
fortunate than we are thnt the entire
spirit of the age would be changed.
After dinner Dr. Fisher delivered the
finest address of the confcrence. The
subject was, "The Relation of the Bible
to the Physical Nature of the Boy."
The common opinion that science is in
opposition to the Bible he proved to bc
false. The Bible is ofexactiy the same
principle as science when we consider
good physical health. A faultless bor'y
is demanded in both cases. Dr. Fihher
proved by quotations from the Bible
that science and Christianity are one
James A. Whitmore then delivered a
good address on "How to bc a
Counter." The field of. Christianity
offers as clear a field of opportunity to
any boy for accomplishing something
worth .whilc as any other. The priee is
absolutely nothing but a clean life and
firm determinntion and the result will
