The wisdom of the Vermont State Bank Com
missioner in cautioning Trust Companies in Ver
mont against paying a higher v-ate than f our per
cent on Savings deposits has been proved by the
present troubles of several of the Trust Com
panies in Boston; where there has been competi
tive bidding for deposits.
The Brattleboro Trust Company guarantees its
depositors 4 per cent on Savings accourits. A
SAFE rate and a FAIR one.
Small accounts as well as large ones are received.

oKiiltion of the necessity of rcvisitiB thc
quor laws of thc stnte to make them
consistcnt with thc fedcral law on the
subject. l'erhaps the word similar docs
not necurntely descrlbo what tho new
lnw must be. It miist bc concurrent
ith the federnl law, or contributinfc
to thc sanic effect, Rcpeal of tho
'erniont liquor law would be insuffi

The first chatiKC in thc Vermont lnw

uecd to onc hnlf on one per cent nnd
n nddition to bcvcrnftcs must bo in
c'.udcd "lhpiids nnd compounds, whether
medicnted, proprietnry, patented or not

The prohibition of the new lnw must
be more complete thnn the present lnw.
The present Vermont law says : "A
person shall not furnlsh or sell or
cxpose or keep witli intent to sell, any
ntoxientiiiK lhiuor, except ns ntttliorized
by this chaptcr." Tho fedcral law
savs: "No person shall manufacture,
ell, bai-ter, trnnsport, import, export.
deliver, furnish or possess any intoxl-
ating liqtinr. except ns nuthorized n
this nct." More compreliensivc prolu
biton thnn the stnte has ever had must
now bo made. The federal nct nllows the
sale ot liquor for non-bcvcrngc purposes,
wine for sncramcntal purposes under
n federal permit, nlso the manufac
ture and sale of denntured nlcohol or
denatured ruiii, mcdieinnl prepnrations
unfit for bevernge purposes, patcnt or
proprietnry mcdicincs, toilet, medicinnl
ind nntiseptie preparatons or solutions,
flnvoring extracts nnd syrups 'unfit for
levernge purposes, vinegar nnd pre-
served sweet eider. A'ermont enn pass
a law allowing the same privileges.
I'hysicinns under permit mny be nl-
lowed to preseribe not more thnn n pint
in ten dnys for n person nfter ninking n
hysical examinntion nnd being con-
vineed sueh preseriptton is necesary for
the relief of some known nilment. A
regiilnr phnrmacist, under permit, may
sell liqilor on n doetor's preseription, but
can lill n preseription lmt once nnd must

I'robnhly n revision of tlie pennlties
for violation of thc wlll nlso have to
be revised to eomply witli the federal
act. Vermont law prohihlts intoxicntion
nnd imposcs pennlties therefor, whieh
tlio federal law docs not. I'robably
this feattire of thc state law can bo rc
talned in tho new nct,.
It will be seen sueh radlcnl changes
