By adopting cleaner threshing meth ods and by literally combing harvest fields to gather grain formerly wast ed, threshermen and farmers of the United States this year saved fully 16,000,000 bushels of wheat, estimated as equivalent to about seven one-pound loaves of bread for every person In' the country. This result, accompanied by corresponding savings of barley, onts, rye and other grains, Is shown by reports from 33 grain states to the U. S. Food Administration. Other states, although not prepared to furnish dett nlte figures of conservation In the grain fields, report greatly reduced harvest losses. This rural food saving achievement, accomplished In scarcely six months' time, was In direct response to re quests by the Food Administration, which nsked farmers and threshermen to reduce harvest losses from about 8 per cent. the estimated average in normal times to the lowest possi ble minimum. Country grain thresh ing committees carried Into every grain growing community the official recommendations for accomplishing the results desired. In numerous Instances drivers of racks with leaky bottoms were sent from the fields to repair their equip ment and frequently bad order thresh ing machines were stopped until the cause of waste was removed. But In proportion to the number of persons engaged In gathering the nation's grain crop, cases of compulsion were com paratively rare. The Food Adminis tration freely attributes the success of the grain threshing campaign to pa triotic service by farmers, thresher men and their crews. Incidentally grain growers of the United States are many millions of dollurs "In pocket" as a result of the grain saved.

A considerable smaller number of deer were killed this season than for two previous seasons, namely 1916, and 1917. Two facts should be con sidered, first: there was a smaller number of hunters than usual due to war conditions; second: the weath er conditions were such, being warm and without snow, that the herds were not broken up and remained in the mountain region. Our wardens have been active and in most counties organized to do most efficient work and be of great est service to sportsmen and the gen eral public. In several counties our wardens report a new spirit on the part of hunters both resident and non-resident, showing a desire on their part to conform to the law The warden force consider it as much a part of their work to give information as to prosecute for vio lations. No accidents due to carelessness of hunters have been reported. No complaints have come to this office from landowners reporting damage to live stock or property.

This year, however it was decided to make a unified effort to enlist every one in the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call and to award Christmas seals as a pledge that tuberculosis work is not to be neglected. The Vermont Association for the Prevention of Tuberculosis has been promised a minimum appropriation from the sale of seals of last year. This arrangement was made thru the National Tuberculosis Association which has approved the work of the Vermont Association and recom mended it for as worthy of help from the Red Cross during the coming year.

SUGAR CARDS MUST BE USED. Food Administrator Brooks Made Statement To-day. Frank II. Brooks, federal food ad ministrator for Vermont, after com municating with Washington, an nounces that for December and Jan uary sugar cards must be used to secure an equitable distribution of sugar until the new Cuban supply becomes available. When the Associ ated Press dispatch from Washing ton indicated that all sugar restric tions would be removed, it was inter preted by Mr. Brooks, in which he is now confirmed by Washington, to mean that the wholesalers could sell to retailers a 30-day supply. If the card system is dropped, it will mean buying on a pre-war basis. Mr. Brooks wants to assure a proper distribution for the next two months that all may have some and not a few have all. Because of this, he assumes, that the people will gladly continue the card system for De cember and January. ' Red Cross Notes. Mrs. H. E.

The Bosworth Store Company , House Furnishers MURDERED FOR MONEY BUT FRIGHTENED AWAY James Allen of Orleans Found in Mill Yard His Body Badly Gashed Orleans, Dec. 7. As a result of in vestigation of the death of James Allen of Orleans, State's Attorney Frank H. Thompson of Barton says the evidence points to murder in the first degree. He believes that the man was decoyed to a pile of lumber in the mill yard of the Parker-Young company in Orleans and a second person secreted on the lumber pile killed him. Allen was 70 years old and was employed by the Parker-Young com pany. He left work at 5 o'clock Wednesday night and at 6:30 was found dead in an unfrequented place in the mill yard, with several gashes in his body. The gashes were made with a sharp, heavy instrument. The wounds were inflicted in the top of the head, and in the opinion of doctors the man was struck by a person on the lumber pile. If robbery were the motive, the old man's assailants were not succes ful, for $247, which he was known to have on his person, was un touched. A team drove into the Times NATIONAL BANK yard about 5:30 and probably fright ened them into a get-away. Bert E. Kelsey, aged 34,a mill hand, in the employ of the Parker Young Co., is in Newport jail, charged with Allen's murder. A Boston detective with State's At torney Thompson of Barton and Sheriff E. J. Hill of Newport are said to have secured a confession from Kelsey, who said that he plan ned in the afternoon to get Allen into the upper yard and get his money. He described the instrument with which the crime was committed as a brass rod about two feet in length, This instrument was found and identified by him. He struck Allen once on the back of the head, knock ing him down, but Allen got up and he struck him two or three times more, and was then frightened a way before having opportunity to secure the $250 which Allen had on his person. Kelsey has worked here more or less for several years. He has served one term in the workhouse and two in state's prison, his last term being; for stealing a horse and burning a barn. Mr. Allen leaves three children, a son in Burlington and two sons in the west.
