Marlboro, Vt., Oct. 15, 1912.
The summer visitors are nearly all
gouo from the homes of our town. Tho
Merrlflclds nnd Miss Carrie Farrar are
still at tho Inn, which under the new
management Is prepared to render satis
factory service to all comers. The past
week has been one of the most delight
ful periods In all tho season and for
those who have nn eye for beauty nnd n
lovo of nnturo It Becms too bad to leave
Vermont boforo tho season of ripening
leaves, for never In all the year Is thero
bo much variety, nnd pleasing change
fulness, nnd charming landscape beauty
as In the first half of October. Towns
hend pcoplo feel that there Is no place
n tho West river valley, or oven In
Vermont, where tho foliage presents a
brighter picture than In nnd around our
picturesque town.- This season the color.
Ing has been especially rich. Many spots
might be mentioned ns representing truly
the artists dream, but "one there Is
nbovo all others," which has attracted
the attention of both the townspeople and
the stranger passing through, nnd which
hns made everybody who has looked upon
It wish he was an artist. It Is the beau
tiful glen on tho farm of Judge E. L.
Hastings, cast of the road from tho vil
lage to the railroad station. It contains
nearly 100 young rock maple trees of
ess than 40 years growth along tho
banks of Mill brook, a few birches and
beech trees adding to the view sufficient
variety to break any suggestion of mo
notony, while Just across tho narrow val
ley on tho side of Peaked mountain the
evergreen trees pine, spruce, hemlock
and cedar make a background which
brings out In striking contrast the bril
liant colors of the maples. The sugar
grove Itself had nt one time almost every
shade known In forest leaf colors, the
pure green of the uncolored leaf, the
golden green of the first changing leaves,
tho soft yellow of some entire trees, the
varlagated green-nnd-ycllow-and-red, and
the bright crimson of the tops of most
of the trees with the darker red, and
the bronze green of some wholo trees
among the maples, made a picture which
none of us will try hard to erase.

HOLDEN & MARTIN
"I had a cargo of grain to sell, and started to call on cus
tomers in Western Maine and New Hampshire. Being
unable to make suitable railroad connections, I decided to
telephone some of my customers.
"This experiment proved so satisfactory that I continued
selling by telephone.
"In two days I had made 38 toll calls from Portland.
Result : sale of 126 cars of grain worth $74,400. The toll
charges amounted to $13.50."
This is a bona-fide statement.'
Have you looked at the telephone on your
desk and ruminated : "I wonder if you
couldn't help mc in my business."
