All who own SOLDIERS' LETTERS Bassenheim, Germany, April 22, 1919. Dear Charles: ' ' Received your letter some time ago and was glad to hear from you and get the news from my old home town. At the time the armistice was sign ed we had no thought that some of us would see Germany. We had a song when out on hikes, which ran: "We don't care for your bacon; all we want is a piece of the Rhine." Rumors were thick at that time. One was that the tank corps would all be home in Jan uary and have a big parade in New ork. But orders came through call ing for all automobile drivers and re pair men, so they began to rake over our records and formed the 19th Pro visional Motor Transport Command, which consists of 420 and seven com- i panics. j We left the Tank Center December , 21st ard went to Dejou which is 40 miles from Percey.

Plumlcy, who recently resigned as' State tax commissioner, sent a final report to Governor Clement last night showing the status of the department, as he turns it over to the State, no successor having been appointed. Mr. Plumley made the following state ment as a part of his final report: "Every cent of corporate revenue due the State of Vermont as of and for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1919, has been collected and turned over to the treasurer of the State of Vermont "Every cent of corporate revenue due the State of Vermont as of the date when I assumed .the office of commissioner of taxes, as well aa every cent of corporate revenue which has become due during the period cov ered by my term of office, approxim ately 111,000,000, has been collected and turned over to the treasurer of the State of Vermont" It is known that when Mr. Plumley took office taxes due the State from corporations were in arrears to the extent of many thousands of dollars. BOARD OF TRADE'NOTES Arrangements are being made for a meeting at Montpelier on July 10th, to close the affairs of the Patrol Commit tee and on the same date there will be a meeting for the purpose of organiz ing a Vermont Good Roads Associa tion to continue the work commenced by the Patrol Committee. The Patrol Committee was organ ized for work during the last session of the Legislature while the proposed organization is intended to be a per manent one. The new organization meeting will be summoned by a call signed by prominent men from all parts of the State. The first meeting on July 10th will be addressed by Prof. Arthur H. Blanchard, professor of Highway En- gineenng at Columbia University; president of American Road Builders Association, and president of the Na tional Highway Traffic Association. Mr. Wm. A. Hart, who was publicity manager for the Patrol Committee, is directing the organisation of the Ver mont Good Roads Association. Manchester business ftien stood loy- t ally back of the Patrol- Committee, and although our work did not result in any beneficial legislation at the last session of the General Assembly, the campaign was by no means a failure so far as results are concerned. The failure of the Legislative to take action has aroused the progres- DORSET Remember the date for the opening of the Community Canning Kitchen is Tuesday, July 8th.

(Page 115.) Freely translated into English, it ruas like this "Only the ruthless use of all vio lent means leads to a quick, decisive defeat of the enemy and prevents the setting up of new defenses. When thi is accomplished, the defeated party must submit to the will of his enemy, must give up hi own demand and the causes of the war for which he contended." There is no question about the man ner in which Germany conducted the war. She made "ruthless use of all violent means." She did not hesitate to destroy thousands of innocent women and children. She did not hes itate to use against non-combatants, whom international law had tried to man's pocket either directly or indi-, rectly. Manchester is fortunate in having both substantial all the year industries and a prosperous summer business and in' being so situated that neither interfere with the other. The Equinox Mountain Spring, Inc. is advertising a new product, Gordon Dry Ginger Ale. Attractive full page advertisements are appearing in many magazines, and Manchester is given prominence in all of them. . Such ad vertising by men whose products have always had the reputation of being the finest in the market, means not only that a successful business is assured for 'Manchester, but that Manchester is going to be more widely and favor ably knows than ever before.
