GOV. MEAD'S GIFT TO RUTLAND.
As'for the gift itself. it ofTers a
splcndid chancc for the young people
of Rutland; and the pcople of that city
should feel a debt of gratitude to Gov.
Ex-Gov. John Abner Mead appeare
again in the role of a public benefactor.
His gift of the Mclntyre property as
a community center on non-sectarian
lines for the young people of Rutland
will provide jU3t the kind of an estafr
lishment needed to give the risinggen'
eration a place for whoiesome enter
taidment and recreation. The gift rep
resents a value of $50,000, and the
commodious buildings will be used for
club rooms, comtnittce rooms, reading
rooms, gymnasium, etc., while the
grounds are of sufficient size to furnish
a playground where tennis and other
exerciaes may be enjoyed out doors.
That uov. Mead has done a generous
deed in securing this valuable property
and devoting it to the community is
not less true than the fact that he
has by this gift made it possible to
carry on a work of constructive good
citizenship and Christianity which
should continue long af ter he has joined
the great maiority m the "undis
covered country from whose bourne no
That he will live to see the plans he
has set in motion uccomplish all the
good he hopes therefrom is the earnest
wish of the city and the fellowship
which he has so nobly rumembered, and
assuredly such a work and such an in
stitution will constitutc a monument
more enduring than granite, moru noble
' Rutland Newe.
' Rutland received a worth-while
Christmas gift in the splcndid present,
announced yesterdny at the Con
gregationul church, from John Abner
Mead, former governor of the State,
of the L. H. Mclntire property on the
southeast corner of Center and Court
streets, to be used by the youth of Rut
land as a social center. While the gift
is placed primarily in the hands of the
trustees of the Congregational church,
it is the earnest wish and expectation
of the donor that it will be absolutely
non-sectarian and open to the young
people of Rutland, regardless of church
or no-church affiliations.
It is the best gift that Rutland has
ever received from any of its citi
zens. While many communities in
Vermont have been generously re
membered by its successful and loyal
citizens, Rutland has had little hereto
fore along this line. The example of
Dr. Mead may be infectious. It is cer
tainly a splendid example for others to
The property when it is developed
along the lines that are in the mind of
the donor will fill one of the greatest
needs in this community that of a
whoiesome, well-equipped gymnasium
and recreation center for the youih of
the city. The half-acre, with com
modious and well'constructed buildings,
is one of the choicest locations in Rut
land, practically adjoining the business
district and therefore easily accessible.
The gift is further proof of Gov
ernor Mead's devotion to the church
of which he has been a member for
nearly a half-century, but far beyond
that it is evidence of his interest in
the city which has been the scene of
his remarkable business success, and of
his love for the youth and his desire to
see them grounded in good health, sur
rounded by right influencesand founded
on good principles. If citizens in their
making are carefully nurtured there
need be no fear of the future of the
This institution will stand as an en

JOSEPH A. De BOER.
Rutland Evening Nowa.
The highest type of citizen, a man
whom any State would be proud to
honor, is with us henceforth only in
spirit but what a magnificent heri
tage! Rutland Ilerald.
Working his way through school
and college, teaching school, studying
finance, working as an actuary, serv
ing as secretary and vice president and
finally as president of the National
Life, Mr. DeBoer gave every evidence,
not only of apowerful, clear and acttve
mentality, but of a capacity for sus
tained effort seldom surpassed in busi
Obitqary notices aro cold, unre
aponsivo things. A mcre recital of the
business, educational, political and
public activities of Joseph A. DeBoer
conveys no impression of tho man as
his friends knew him. Wonderfully
keen of intellect, with a wealth of
knowlcdge stored in his mind, he pos
sesscd the quality of knowing and ap-
preciating other men, and having a
sympathy for thcir hopes and strug
gles. Burllneton Free Presa.
His was a grand life which afTorded
constant inspiration. It was inspiring
in its upward progress frnm a little
immigrant boy forced to sell papers to
eke outa scanty living, to an cnviable
position at thc head of one of the great
est insurance companies in the United
States. His life was an inspiration in
its constant striving toward grand ideals
of manhood, lofty conceptionsof citizcn
ship and broad principles of patriotism.
Every worthy cause found in him an
earnest champion and an cloquent advo
cate. Bennington Banncr.
In the death of Hon. Joseph A. De
Boer Vermont has lost its most bril
liant citizen. He was brought to this
country from Holland when a chlld
and never had any advantages save
those he worked for and earned by hard
labor. He never had a pull, but rose
from his start as a newsboy to become
at the age of 41 the head of one of
the great financial institutions of the
country. HiB career reads like a
romance, but the key to his success
was study, hard work and honcst ser
vice. His death at the age of 64 is a
great loss to Vermont and to the whole
Waltcr II. Crockctt.
It is seldom that there are united in
one man the qualities of a great busi
ness executive, a profound scholar and
a brilliant orator, but such a union was
exemplified in the life of Mr. DeBoer.
It was always a delight to listen to his
public addresses. His enunciation was
clear and distinct, his argument was
logical and his familiarity with the mas-
ters of literature, ancient and modern,
cnabled him to adorn his speech with
npt and graceful quotations.
Mr. DeBoer believed thoroughly in the
future of Vermont and was inter
ested in all that pertained to its devel-
opment. His political ideals were high
He stood firmly for what he believed to
be right and his career takenas a whole
is a splendid example of faithful and
efficient servicc in public and private
life to hold before young men.

FEED THE BIRDS.
Now if ever is the time to make
known your love for the birds. The
heavy snow is a decided handicap to
our feathered friends in getting food.
A sweeping from the barn floor thrown
out under a tree in the yard or even
taken to the edge of nearby woods, will
help the birds greatly in getting enough
to sustain themselves. It is jiot the
cold that the birds mind, as much as it
is the depth of the snow which will
hinder them in reaching the ground or
even some hole in which they have a
store of food.
FREEDOM FOR COLLEGE PRO
FESSORS. Rutland Evening News.
If thc rumpus aroused by the dis
missal of Prof. Scott Nearing from
the Univeriity of Pennsylvania last
summer seemed to anybody a mere
tempest in a teacup, that view is now
dispelled and the storm is justified by
Professor Nearing in himself was
unimportant, but the principle of the
thing--the question wheth'er college
trustees might curb the free utterance
of professors by discharging them for
expressing their personal opinions
was very important. There arose a
demand throughout the country that
scholars intrusted with teaching our
American youth should be untrammeled;
that at least there should be no ground
for suspicion that wealth or vested in
terests in any form had power to con
trol the teaching of npeciaiists in edu
Now the University of Pennsylvania
itself has yielded to the storm of
criticism. There will be no more ruth
less "firing" of professors. It has
been decided that the trustees, in dis
missing professors or instructors, must
have the consent of the faculty, and
the professor's own colleagues will have
the deciding voice, Moreover, when a
man is dropped for a good reason, ho
will be notified in time, so that ho
needn't be left without a job.
Such a conclusion shonld give a new
spirit of self-respect and freedom to the
teaching force of every college in the

with just the right nmountof snow to

right. No big extremes meet here.
ROBERT COBB, BFNEFACTOR.
It isn't the size of the gift that
counts, it is the proportion as compared
to meanB and the spirit that is back of
it. The widow's mite, which was all
she had, outweighed millions from other
sources. Robert Cobb, a colored barbcr,
who died in St. Johnsbury last week,
was a poor man, but he deserves to be
ranked higher as a public benefactor
than many men with great fortunes. It
is rather pathetic to read of the way
that he diBposed of his savings, as fol
lows: $100 to the Sunset home for
aged women; $100 to the Red Men, to
be used for flowers lor funerals of
members; $100 to the North Congrega
tional church; $50 to the St. Johnsbury
cemetery association. When additional
chapters of the St. Johnsbury history
are written, the name of Robert Cobb
oughtto be perpetuated in them.
County Agent Wood of Caledonia
county ndvises the farmers of that
section to buy the chemicals and mix
their own fertilizer, alleging that 99
per cent of the farmers who do this
are satisfied with the result, and also
save from $5.00 to $10.00 per ton by" so
doing. The farmers of that county
may pay a dollar and belong to the
county association, and purchase their
chemicals co-operatively and save a
tidy sum. Besides all this, there is
this advantage to the farmers in co
operative buying of fertilizers; the
product when mixed is much purer
than the products sold on the open
market, the "fillers" in such brands
varying in amounts from 100 to 1000
pounds per ton. This 'filler" has, so
it is alleged, absolutely no fertilizing
value, and is putin merely to save the
more costly materials. Hence the ad
ded value to the farmer of doing his
CONGRESSMAN GREENE GROW-
The Daily Evening Argus says
Representative Frank L. Greenc has
been assigned to the military com
mittee in Congress and we predict that
he will be one of its most valuable
members. Col. Greene has long been
associated with military matters es-
pecially with the Vermont National
Guard, and has given the subject much
study and attention, which, addcd to
his unusually good judgment, will prove
valuable. A better choice for the com
mitte could not have been made.
No Congressman in recent years has
grown faster in theappreciation of the
leaders in theHouse than Congressmtn
He is a personal friend of the Speaker
of the House and sits at "the Round
Table" with the leaders on the republi-
can, or "opposition side" of the House
Meanwhile he is just as popular at
home and no man, since D. J. l''oster, is
more mindful of the interests and re
quests of his constituents,
Congressman Greene isone of the
coming big men in this country.
The recent meeting of the State
Grange of Vermont and New Hamp
shire, the former in Burlington and the
latter in JCeene, has called renewed at
tention to the Patrons af Husbandry,
undoubtedly the largest and most in
fluential farmers' organization in the
world. Life in the rural regions lacks a
social side, and the Grange meetings
with their literary programs and de
bates go a long way in providing this
important feature. The Grange is in
terested in all the various phases of
agriculture, its needs and its problems,
but its good work does not eud in try
ing to teach its members better farnv
ing. The Grange stands strongly for
better methods of living, for temper
ance, for improved highways and more
' efficient public schools, and its position
is usually right on all matters concern
ing public welfare. Vermont is better
and stronger and people in the State
are better contented on account of the
Grange and its activities. We believe
the organization will continue to grow
and prosper and to find still greater
fields for usefuldess.
