SAVE 16,000,000 BUSHELS
OF WHEAT THAT FORMERLY
WAS LOST IN THRESHING
Farmers, Urged by Food Administra
tion, Provide Seven Extra Loaves
of Bread for Every American.
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
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.

Total number of pounds dressed
venison 97, 371, value at 15c per lb,
Number of deer reported as il
legally or accidentally killed: Does 17,
Buck fawns 9.
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
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.

Will Not Be Placed On Sale This
Year, But Ten Will Be Given
Every New Member.
The Red Cross Christmas seals will
not be placed on sale this year but
ten will be awarded to every person
who joins the Red Cross at the
Christmas Roll Call. The seals have
been printed by the Red Cross for
sevevsJ years for the purpose of rais
ing find for the fight of tuberculois.
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
H. W. Slocum, Secretary of the
Vermont Tuberculosis Association
states that during 1919 the Associ
ation will enlarge the capacity of the
Preventorium, endeavor to extend
the Modern Health Crusade move
ment to every school in the state,
provide for personal visits to all sold
iers discharged on account of tuber
culosis, and also take up intensive
work in a limited district probably
Montpelier and Barre.
SUGAR CARDS MUST BE USED.
Food Administrator Brooks Made
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.

Can't touch the man with the "saving habit."
We don't mean the miser he is one of the worst
sufferers in the spirit.
The sensible, prudent man who lives within his
income and regularly lays by a little of his earnings,
can defy war times.
The best war to get the "saving habit" is to
start a savings account with the Island Pond Nation
You'll take pride in watching it grow to pro
portions where it will work for you.
Yours for mutual prosperity.

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
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
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
