A Sp6rtsman's Chance
Everybody thrills to the story of the person
who takes a chance on his own life to Eavc
another's that is indeed a sportsman's
But people take chances every day that arc
neither heroic nor necessary.
Keeping valuables in the home, where they
serve as an effective bait for burglars, is
chance-taking of the second order.

Northeastern Vermont sustained all the fine tradi
tions of the Republican party in Tuesday's national elec
tion by giving every candidate, from President down to
town officers, a handsome majority. The only consola
tion the Democrats received in Caledoria county was
the election of two town representatives, A. J. Goss of
Danville) who won by one vote over William Clement, and
John Buckley, who won in Wheelock over G. R. Dresser.
I lie election brought out a tremen
dous vote in every city and town.
The vote was nearly doubled
over past elections m every
instance by the advent of women
voters. They showed a great inter
est not only in getting to the polls
early and voting, but also in follow
ing the returns in all the contests.
Caledonia county gave a handsome
majority to James B. Campbell, Re
publican, in the spirited contest for
stale's attorney. lie was elected over
Samuel Richardson, Democrat, by
! 18G8. This is a fine endorsement of
the administration of Attorney Camp
bell and the futility of the Demo
crats in running a candidate as an
independent in an effort to befog the

The voting became so neavy tiur
ine the afternooft that the cl-ction

ballots left. In the afternoon Lyn
donville election officials telephoned

FUND SWELLING IN
Need Only $195.30 to Com
plete Quota. School
Only $195.30 to raise to complete
it's quota. That is how the village
of St. Johnsbury stands today in the
drive to secure funds lor the Chil
dren's Aid Society of Vermont in an
effort to help the chilci. ei. of the state
Officials in charge of the campaign
are hopeful that the fund here will go
"over the top" this week but will be
satisfied if the quota is completed
earlv next week. St. Johnsbury's
ouota is $1,000 and 804.70 of this
amount already has been subscribed.
Every citizen is urgently requested to
give according to their means, if only
a few pennies. '
The first contribution in the cam
naigning was received from the City
Mission. The check forwarded by this
organization was for $20.00 which
gave the fund a good start.
The town of Lyndon has passed
wav beyond its quota of $500 and is
still going. Up to date $769.55 has
been given to the society and the
money continued to pour in. Why
can't St. Johnsbury do as well.
Mrs. M. N. Heywood, who is chair
manman of the drive, has received
the following letter from Miss Ruth
' Nov. 3, 1920.
My dear Mrs. Heywood:
i it. ii wnn xnc greatest pleasure
that iendou tihe renort of 'what
It ii with the greatest pleasure
the school children pf St. Johnsbury
have done in the Drive to help the
"Children's Aid Society".
Two weeks ago they were given
the slogan "Work, Earn, Give" and
faithfully have they remembered it
as the results prove. The fact that
the money has actually been earned
by the children gives it far greater
value as a gift.
The total is $112.17. To the third
grade in the Summer street school
goes the honor of earning the largest
amount, that sum being $15.74. The
fifth grade in the same school came
second with a credit of $13. The sec
ond grade came in third with $11.50
and it is with pleasure that we note
the little tots in the first grade earned
$8.50. They should have had first
place if enthusiasm could have given
it to them but little folks cannot
earn the amounts that the larger
folks can. However, they deserve rec
ognition for their splendid spirit. .
Reception to Representative
Elect Gilbert E. Woojds
Notwithstanding the numerous at
tractions Thursday evening over 5O0
of our citizens accepted the invitation
of Representative-elect Gilbert E.
Woods to call at his Summer street
home where he and Mrs. Woods kept
open house throughout the evening.
The St. Johnsbury band led the crowd
to the house and early in the evening
Mr. Woods came out on the piazza
and in a few well chosen words
thanked the ladies and gentlemen of
lit. Johnsbury for the splendid sup
port they gave him at the polls. The
crowd then filed through the house to
PTttsp Mr. Woods' hand and extend
personal congratulations. In the re
ceiving line with Mr. Woods was hi.'

of the republican town committee, W.
A. Ricker, Charles W. Steele, Frank

been extended the crowd passed into
another room where each lady re

Republican victories in party history today stood record
