CONDENSED MILK FACTORY IN
Rutl nnd is to have a condensed milk
factory. C. Brigham & Co., of Boston,
who for some time have maintained a
shipping station in Rutland in leased
premises, have bought a tract of
land bordering on the Rutland rail
road from George T. Chaffee and
Newman K. Chaffee of Rutland and it
is understood that they propose to erect
on it a brick or cement building, which
will cost $30,000. Theproperty, which
is to chnnge hands, no deeds being pas
sed as yet, has a frontage of 240 feet on
the track and a depth of 120 feet. It
is now vacant. In the event of build
ing, Brigham & Co. will give up their
old quarters here. It is said that tho
building of a condensary here is due
to the fact that the concern has given
up its estublishment at Bellows Falls.

needed. Itmakes special suggestions
as to soil treatment and as to the most

indicates what sort of fertilizers will be

REPORT OF THE PATRONS' FIRE
We submit the following report for
the yearending January 11, 1916:
Total insuranc in force, $210,502 0
Receivedpremiums to date, 601.39
Paid out for printing post-
age and mileage and pay
of oflicers (all oflicers are
paid $2.00 per dny) 188 73
Balance in treasury, 412 66
We have had no fire losses.
The Patrons' Co-operative Fire In
surance company was organized June
14, 1915, under act No. 159 of the Ver
mont Laws of 1915.
Its purpose is to carry the insurance
of Vermont Fnrmers who are members
of the Grange on their property against
fire and lightning. The charter limits
tho company to members of the Order
of Patrons of Husbandry and in terri
tory to Addison, Bennington, Chitten
den, Franklin, Grand Isle and Rutland
counties in Vermont.
The company is not run for profit
but endeavors to give insuranc; at
cost, and is strictly Mutual, all of
the members contributing their propor-
tionate share toward paying the losses
and expenses of management. The
company has comparatively few risks
in towns, the rules are so matle that there
will nrobablv never be a very heavy
line of insurance bunched in towns, the
idea being to keep our risks scattered
so that there will be only one loss at a
time, and that no conllagration can
sweep us out of existcnce.
Properly rodded buildings are prac
tically proof from lightning. We ad
vise the purchase of chemical fire ex
tinguishers. As we do not advertise,
we depend on the patrons to induce
every other Granger to cancel his old
policy and unite with us. He can well
afford to do so, as the average cost of
Grange fire insurance is only about
$2.00 per thousand per year, or about
one-half what it is costing through the
other companies who are taking farm
insurance here in Vermont.
Our great ndvantago over the old
line companies is that we reduco the
expense to a very small proportion of
the whole cost and by care in taking our
risks we reduce the normal hazard to
In conclusion, we nsk for the hearty
co-operation of the members in the
work and especially in exnmination of
all risks carried by the company.

NEW STATE FORFST.
The Vermont Forestry Department
has just concluded the purchase of a
tract of about 2,000 acres lying on the
east side of Mt. Mansfield. This
property, ndded to the onu acquired a
year ago on the west side of the range,
makes the total area about 5,000 acres.
The Mansfield Forest will eost Vermont
about $13,500, the timber not included.
A fairly satisfactory arrangement has
been made by the State Forester with
the grantors whereby they agree not to
cut spruce nnd fir trees which nre less
than 10 inches in diameter; andhemlock
and hardwoods less than 15 inches
(all trees to be measured at breast
height). On certain areas no cuttings
are to be made and the time limit will
make it impossible to cut close.
From n forestry standpoint the pur
chase of this large area at a reasonable
price with a fairly good stand of grow
ing trees, makes this by far the finest
area in the State. Markets for lumber
in Sti.we and Underhill are bound to
improve and there can be no question
but what the purchase will prove a good
investment to the State in future
Governor Gates, who has been in
favor of this purchase since it was first
called to his attention, is particularly
interested because of its scenic aspects.
On the north the tract crosses the
Smugglcr's Notch Road, which the
Governor hopes to develop as one of the
chief attractions of the State. It is un
surpassed in benuty by anything in New
England. Further south the Nebraska
Notch crosses the State Forest. By a
development of roads through these
two notches a splendid circuit wotild be
thrown opon to the nutomobilist. State
Forester Hawes believes that the dem
onstration of practical Forestry princi
ples in a section that will be so witlely
visited cannot fail to produce good re
suits throughout the State.
