GRANGERS SHOULD STAND SOLIDLY BEHIND GOVERNMENT State Master Frank E. Blakeman of Stratiord called upon every member to use nis utmost endeavor to stand firm for the principles of integrity and sobriety upon which the solid founda tions of our government are laid in making his annual address at the thirty-fifth annual session of -the Connecticut state grange at Foot Guard hall in Hartford Tuesday morning, In attendance at the session the premier event in grange activity ev ery year are nearly 300 delegates from the ten Pomona granges and the 146 subordinate granges. .Numer ous visitors are expected during the session, and one Natiorlal Master Sherman J. Lowell of New York will install the new officers Thursday af ternoon. One of the features of the- session will be the. election of officers for the coming two years. It is probable that the present officers, who have served only one term, will be elected. Moster Blakeman said on the sub ject of prohibition "Our Connecticut Senate voted to place the disgrace of refusing to ratify' the prohibition amendment on the state, although forty-five state and Congress and the highest courts In our nation sustained .every measure for its adoption of and enforcement For tunately our delegation in congress and those senators who refused to ac cede to a demand for a higher and better .civilisation are net permitted to deprive our state of the advantages of a saloonless nation in 1920. Therefore it becomes tle duty of every patron to use his utmost en deavor to aid the federal government in the enforcement of the law. The rapid growth of our cities in recent years, populated very largely by peo ple of foreign birth and foreign ideals. has carried the sentiment of our staite far from its reputation of' being the land of steady habits. Therefore it behooves every home loving patron to stand firm for those principles of in tegrity and sobriety upon which the solid foundations of our state, gov ernment were laid. 'Master Blakeman said that earlv this year a request was sent out from the master's office for an extension regarding the daylight saving law and nearly every grange voted emphatiear iy in favor of its repeal. This session, he said, should take some clear ac tion whicH will express the policy of tne grange in a. clear and unmistakable manner. Country Thieving. One of the problems which con front the farmer, Master Blakeman said was that of protecting his crops from thieves. "After successfully combatting drouth, storms, winds, hail, blight, bugs, caterpillars and fungus" said Mr. Blakeman, , "the worst rodents of all are the city thieive They d(icenf upon our crops just before maturity and, in the cunning of their maliciousness and destructiveness exceed all - others. Our experiment station, or our Agri cultural college, has - not devised a practical method of exterminating them. -This is a rapidly growing evil and while the last general assembly provided a law with a very heavy pen alty it does not abate the nuisance. The farmer must be watchful of sus picious persons and be willing to ap pear as witnesses in court whenever they are in possession of evidence which might lead to conviction. It would be well - if this session could formulate a plan which our legislative committee could' urge before the next legislature as a possible remedy." Highway. VLt. Blakeman m referring to high way development said that there should be further dvelopment of the so-called feeder roads that the farmers may be more easily in touch with the enters of trade at all season of the year. Many of the best farms are not being operated at a maximum of their producing ' capacity because of. the condition of the highways leading to them four months in the year. lie urged the grangS to adopt a definite! policy to be placed before the legisla e legisla- ture whereby state aid can be used to improve feeder roads: This would increase the value ' of farm lands and so Increase the amount of food produced to assist in feeding our own people. -Relations With Labor, In reviewing the session of the Na tional Grange Mr. Blakeman analyzed the matter of Grange affiliation with the Federation of Labor. He said: "Wherever efforts have been made to bring organized labor and the farmers together it has always result ed in the labor unions wanting short er hours, higher wages ' and eheaper food;' but when the problem ef what Mother ! Be Watchful of a Growing Baby's Teeth . However 'pegleetful you may have been ot your own teeth, you owe It to your children to. see that they take care of -'theirs. When epidemics like influenza and spina! meningitis come, children who have clean mouths are most likely to escape. Dr. n. r. Walker of Denison, Tex., always advises Albodon Dental Cream, and Mrs. H. B,. Putler, a - dentist s wife of Ogdensburg, N. Y., uses "it ex clusively for herself and young daugh ter. Albodon is calcium carbonate, saponified and mixed with the well known antiseptic oils of cloves, cin namon and eucalyptus, which au tlrorities declare is the effective and safe composition for women and chil dren. . . A tube of this . fine cream contain ing S5 brushings can be bought under Strict guarantee at any drug or de partment store. The most discrim inating families use Albodon. labor would do to help the farmer produce cheaper food the unions refus ed to affiliate. Their demands were gimply impossible." Of the reconstuctiop period, Mr. Blakeman said: "The farmers have been producing steadily and faithful ly to the limit of their ability to feed a starving world while labor has beenv loating on the Job. Yet they tlabor) expect the farmer to potiuce the food at the same old cost while labor has forced up the price of every thing, the farmer uses in, cultivation. Why should the farmer and his wife work from dawn to dark that laborers in other industries may have shorter hours and more pay? The common ground between the farmer and the demands of union labor has not been yet discovered." CRIMINAL COURT ENDS . - WITHOUT A TRIAL Disposing of two cases -in the crim inal superior court here Tuesday, the January term of the court adjourned without day at o'clock in the after noon, the first criminal term which bas been without a tr.al while he has been state's atton.ey. Major Hadlai A. Hull of NewJ-ondon said after the court session was over. There have been about 30 ca-ies, on this docket The cases whiih closed the cou--c on Tuesday were those in whicn iibou czcr F. Marsh of Longmeadovv, K. I., and Dr. Frank C. Atchison of tins fi.y were the accused. . In the informrt.en against him 2lr. Marsh had been charged with man slaughter, but tiiit was changed on Tuesday and he was allowed to plcj. I guilty to recklius tiiiving of an aatj moijile on which lis was fined $50 ml c-6ts,. which amjuiaed to $233. J;r. ilarsh paid the lin and costs. On '-he night of Dec. 1 in Quaker-Hill on the Norwich-New London turnpike he was driving his automobile and ran into and kil'n-d ten-year-old Desmond M. Crighton. The boy was pushing a small cai't at the time. Attorney Ar- ! thur M. Brown made a plea for Mr. Marsh before the court, saying that this was the man's first mishap in 14 years of driving a car. The accident happened on a bend in the road and was partiahy due to the lights whirh did not focus on the boy ahead of the car. Mi. Liown said that Mr. Marsh did a.l he co-lid after the accident and remained in Waterford over night where he might have gone on and es caped without anyone knowing whose car had hit the boy. The case against Dr. Atchison, who had for his counsel Attorneys King, Shields and Barnes, was settled just belore court adjourned in the after noon. Dr. Atchison was charged with attempting to procure an illegal oper ation upon a married woman from Westerly a number of months ago. The case was noiled uoon motion bv the state's attorney upon the doctor' s- agreement to, pay to the state $500 and the same sifm to the husband of the woman. The settlement nft case included also the doctor's promise not to engage in future in the practice with which be was charged. The jurors who have been in at tendance at court in case they should Co called on for a trial were thanked by Judge George E. Hinman as In discharged them and they were paid off by Clerk George E. Parsons.
