ly, "of a whole army that was put to

Then the crowd applauded, and the
young man thought that at last ho had
scored, But his triumph was shortlived,
for again came n voice from the crowd,
this time In a resigned tone:
"Young man," It said quietly; "go
ahead. This army's been testoJ."

WATER -POWER DEVELOPMENT.
The Vernon Power Plant. ,
In 1902 a number of business men of
BiratWeboro organized Informally and
procured surveys of tho Connecticut
river In that vicinity for the purpose of
determining the opportunities for tho de
velopment of water power. That move
ment resulted In tho creation of the
Connecticut River Power company by
the legislature of 1902, with charter
amendments In 1901 and 1906. Many sur
veys wero mado and a largo amount of
preliminary engineering work was done,
and finally tho requisite capital was In
terested, a like olmrter procured In
Now llampshlre, nnd In 1907 was begun
the construction of an electric power
plant on the Connecticut river, with the
power home In the town of Vernon;
and power was first delivered In the fall
Tho location of this plant makes tho
enterprise an Interstate one. How much
of the plant Is actually In Vermont and
how much In New Hampshire depends
on the locution of the boundary line be
tween those two states, which Is In dis
pute, nnd, because of steps taken by
tho town of Walpole, New Hampshire,
telatlve to taxation of property at Bel
lows Falls, is likely untlmntcly to be
determined by the Supreme Court of
tho United States.
The plant at Vernon Is operated from
the Vermont side. Tho operatives live In
Vernon, nnd the transmission lines ra
diate from the Vernon side. The Con
necticut River Power company owns the
plant nnd all Its transmission lines In
Vermont nnd New Hampshire. The
transmission lines In Massachusetts are
owned by a Massachusetts corporation
that Is auxiliary to the Vermont cor
poration and controlled by tho same
parties. The undertaking, aside from
rights, franchises, etc., hns cost more
than $3,500,000. The Connecticut river Is
dammed, giving a head of 32 feet, and
forming a pond 23 miles long, which cov
ers, Including the rlVer surface, .nearly
5,000 acres. The plant generates from
25,000 to 27,000 horso-power. which Is
distributed by seventy-nine miles of
transmission line. Tho plant Is one of
the most modern and efficient In the
United States. The dam and power
house foundations aro of solid concrete.
The power house Is of brick, and con
tains eight main generators, and their
appurtenances, each with a capacity of
more than 3000 horse power. The gross
earnings of tho company In 1911 ex
ceeded $400,000. It furnishes substantially
all the power used In Brattleboro, as It
furnlffljes electric current for domestic
lighting and power to all the Industries,
and for the street railway. It has re
duced the cost of electricity in Brattle
boro substantially 40 per cent, and stim
ulated Its Industrial activity. Several
new and Important industries have al
ready been attracted to locate in Brat
tleboro because of this power, and sev
eral others aro already planning to lo
cate there. About 100 new tenement
houses were built there last year, and
as many more will be built this year.
The plant also lights Vernon In this
state, Hinsdale, Keene and Winchester
in New Hampshire, and Marlboro and
Gardner In Massachusetts, and Interven
Deerfield River Power Development.
In 1908 the parties that financed the
Vernon plant became Interested In the
Deerfield river. A charter was secured
from our legislature In 1908. and in due
course charters wero procured In Mas
sachusetts covering the part of the riv
er In that Btate. The company acquired
substantially all the rights from Shel
burne Falls, Massachusetts, to Somer
set, Vermont, about 20 miles of the river
In each state. A plan was formulated to
acquire rights sufficient to warrant the
development of storage In the head
waters. It Is claimed that the project
when completed will result In the de
velopment of 80,000 horse power contin
uously for every hour In the year.
There will be ten separate generating
plants, five In Vermont and five In Mas
sachusetts. Six of those plants are now
under construction, Including the great
storage reservoir at Somerset, which Is
by far the greatest part of the whole
undertaking. A dam Is being there con
structed, after the engineering designs
of the Gatun dam at Panama, to be
nearly 2000 feet long, 100 feet high and
COO feet thick. Construction work has
been In progress now for some months,
and more than 400 men are employed
thereat, and It probably will not be
completed till the fall of 1913. The pro
ject requires four miles of construction
track, seventy dump cars, six locomo
tives and two largo steam shovels. A
construction camp of an unusually sub
stantial character has been established
there. Before this work was begun the
population of Somerset probably did not
exceed 20 persons. Since then streets of
houses, a 'sewer system, a hospital,
stores, club" rooms and an electric light
plant have been constructed. Tho ultl
mato expenditure for the reservoir and
power plants at Somerset will approx
imate $2,000,000. . Tho pond will cover 2000.
acres. It is proposed to hold tho whole
flow of water at that point, to be let
down the stream In times of low water.
These plants are being connected by
transmission lines with the plant at
Vernon, so thnt the system of power
distribution will ' run from one to the
other, and their transmissions of power
be mutual, . making thee two systems a
unit, or rather an organism, and giv
ing to tho whole service the combined
power producing capacity of tho two
rivers. The completed project will In
size and quality be second In the United
States only to the electric plants at
"Fifteen Miles Falls" Power
The same financial Interests that con
trol the two enterprises Just described
have also acquired a large portion of
the rights on what Is called the "Fifteen
Miles Falls" In the Connecticut river
opposite tho towns of Waterford, Con
cord, and Lunenburg In Vermont and
Monroe, ' Littleton and Dalton In New
Hampshire. A charter for the develop
ment of this property was granted by
our legislature In 1910, and a like char
ter has been procured In New Hamp
shire. Preliminary engineering work
covering tho watershed has been done,
nnd carefully prepared development
plans have been completed. Corpora
tions have been organized, nnd in due
time tho Connecticut river will bo dam
med between tho towns of Waterford,
Vermont, and Littleton, New Hamp
shire, nnd a largo electric power plant
constructed. It Is asserted thnt from 50,
00i) to 00,000 horso power will bo devel
oped here. The plan Is to run power
lines from this plant to Littleton, nnd
that vicinity, to St. Johnsbury, Hnrd
wlck, Barro nnd Montpoller In this state,
and to build transmission lines to Brat
tleboro, covering Eastern Vermont and
Western Now Hampshire, furnishing
electricity to towns and private con
cerns. Tho ultimate cost of this plant
with Its main transmission lino?, exclu
sive of branch lines an,d BUb-statlons,
will exceed $7,000,000.
Those threo enterprises, the Vernon
plant, tho Deerfield River development,
and the "Fifteen Miles Falls" construc
tion, will all bo connected, nil under the
same control, and all together will form
one enormous electric power plant, so
Bluated, connected, ntid constructed ns
to make substantially ono system, nnd
to give a reliable and continuous elec
tric power for nil the needs of all the
territory within Its reach. From the
blennlnl report of tho Vermont public
The largest bell Is the great bell nt
Moscow, which Is KB fe'ot In clrcumfer
enco at the bottom, over 21 feet high
and 23 Inches thick at tho top. Its
weight has been coipputed at 217 tons.
It has never been hung.

Do you know that thrift is
lagely a matter of habit?
Do you know that if you com
mence saving your loose change,
the habit will grow upon you until
it will be a greater pleasure to save
your money than to spend it for
things you do not need?
The Lamoille County Savings
Bank and Trust Company accepts
deposits of any size no deposit is
too small, no deposit is too large.
The following table shows the
amount you will have at the end
of one to 25 years, if you deposit
$5.00 each month, computing inter
est at 4 per cent, compounded
semi-annually, as is done by the
Hyde Park Savings Bank:
Note at the end of
your deposits will amount to
$1500, but with interest at 4, per
cent, compounded semi-anmially,
the amount to your credit at that
time will be $25GG.G4. How many
boys spend foolishly, needlessly
and oftentimes for something that
is worse than useless, $5.0,0 per
month? Think it over and see if
you cannot bring yourself to be
lieve that you will enjoy saving;
better than spending and thereby
become a capitalist.
It is absolutely safe to send your
money by mail to the Hyde Park
Savings Bank, either by postal or
express money order, personal or
bank check, express or registered
letter. In the nearly 24 years of
its existence not a dollar sent by
mail to this bank has been lost.
Remember too, that during its
entire existence this bank has
never lost a dollar by a poor note
and does not, in the judgment of
its directors, today own a single
dollar of poor or doubtful assets.
Its managers are thoroughly con
servative bankers, men who never
speculate, never deal with Wall
Street, and the bank does not own
a dollar of paper paying more than
six per, cent interest. Safety, rrth
er than the higher rates of interest
the universal ruleof this bank.
