HOARD OF TRADE NOTES The director of the Board of Trade met at the Court House on Monday evening:, June 6th and voted in C8 new members. Almost every day somebody report peeing- one of our Manchester road sign at some distant hotel in Maine, New Hampshire, New York or some other state where they were placed. It is very gratifying to learn that all the summer hotels and boarding houses In Manchester have reaaon to expect a big season's business. The summer resort business of the town is a good one, even in off years, and this year the employment given on new summer cottages and in other lines of summer work has kept about all the permanent labor in town em ployed. Our neighbors in East Dorset have complained somewhat nbout our cards directing traffic by way of Middletown Springs to Rutland. Fcrhaps the cards do exaggerate somewhat the condition of the road which ia under construction as it is almost always in passable condition as required by the contract. The road to East Dorset is in good shape and nearly completed. it Vi next monthly meeting of the Hoard of Trade on June 13th. James V Tavlor. Secretary of the Burling ton Chamber of Commerce and of the Greater Vermont Association, will be nregent and talk to the members. Mr. Tailor is the Vermont propagandist extraordinary. The "Vermonter" says of him: "Taylor loves Vermont He recog nized at once her tremendous possibil ities as the peer of all the States of America, and felt that it was worth his while to devote so much of his life, and expend so much of his dynamic force and genial optimism toward bringing those possibilities in to living reality." Mr. Taylor is the principal promot er of the "Long Trail" of the Green Mountains. her of the Board of Trade should miss the opportunity to hear Mr. Taylor. WHAT IS BOYS' AND GIRLS' CLl'B WORK?

McColl, from "The Con gregationalist" of May 19th, will be of special interest to our Dorset readers and we think to many others, also: "It is not often that South Africa comes to Vermont, bringing diamond and gold nuggets and other marvels; but the parish of Dorset among the Green Mountains has recently had a sub-tropical experience which ha en larged its mental horizon. His name was John A. McColl and he came straight from Johannesbrug. supply ing the pulpit during the three months' absence. Rev. W. L. Haven, who was forced to give up his work on account of ill health. Before his noiourn in Africa Mr. MacColl did o-itnA work as a pastor in New Eng land, notably at St. Albans and New Bedford. During his stay at Dorset he greatly endeared himself to hi parishioners. He called on every fam ily in the parih and that meant much in this Vermont community of scat tered farms. He was instrumental in organizing a Shake pea re Club and in instituting a New Years' Eve watch meeting. Informal gathering were held now and then in d.Terent part of the valley to inspect his African trophies and li. ten to the tle of tlieir acquisition. Mr. MaK.o.l wa neither a missionary in Africa, nor a settled pastor. He preferred to suj.ply pul pit in the absence of their pat.rs. He went all over the country, servirg In such places as Johannesburg, Pie' errrartizburr, Kimberley, Capetown, Durban. East London, King William Town. In a similar manner he hope to ?rve now that he ha returned to America, opplying ehurche that are temporarily without minuter.'
