Heed was spenker of the house a great furor was created when congress, in two sessions, appropriated a billion dollars. Tom Keed remarked at that time that this was a billion dollar country, but the explanation did not satisfy the Democrats, then out of power, who made the next campaign against the Republi cans on the charge of extravagance. If the appropriations could be kept down to a billion dollars at the present time the pledges of economy would be re garded as fulfilled.

One oi the "charges" of the FleUh er bureau has beea that Senator Page's vocational in 1 1 was a tiz.z.ie and was lost in the shuttle.

The despatch which the contenipor- lrv ouotcs was not sent out bv the As sociated Press but bv Senator Page! himself. It was cleverly worded, but scarcely accurate in conveying the ex act situation. As The Herald understands it, the bill passed was not Senator Page's educational bill, but the Smith-Lever ill. which had been slumbering in committee and was not scheduled for action during this session. This in formation comes from members of the press gallery in Washington and is be lieved to be authentic.

One of the most depress ing experiences in life is to ride all day in a lop buggy and never be able to see twenty feet ahead of the dash board on account of the dust en gendered by the speed-craz.ed tourist. There was a time in the history of our country when the man who owned a high top buggy that hail to be climbed into from a scoring .-tart was looked upon as one of the predatory rich. Most people rode in the resilient lumber wagon or the loose-jointed buckboard, and when an allluent neigh bor invested the price of a wagonload of fall pigs in a top buggy or a two- seated surrev everybody said he was making ntonev too fast, and the diref tors of the bank held a meeting for the purpose of going over his paper. Many a man has had to take up a promissory note with a heavy .heart, simply because his wife objected to having her spine crystallized by contact with the unyiel.li ig seat of a still legged lumber wagon. .Nowadays, however, it is getting harder to sell a top buggy than it is to peddle gents' furnishings in South Africa.

What people want nowadays is something that can be stepped on with the right foot and will land the steppee iu the next county before the owner of a top buggy could get out of the corpirate limits. This remarkable invention is known as the joy wagon, and its glad coming is filling countless thousands of homes with sweet peace and forbidding duns. There are times, nevertheless, when the top buggy is a household necessity. It must be confessed that it has its good points. For instance, the top bug gy does not have to have new tires every thirty days, nor does it run out of fuel late at night, making it neces sary to amuse some morose farmer from sleep and rob his gasoline stove of its contents. The top buggy does not bury itself up to the chin in a mudliole, either, and have to be vanked to its feet by a rapacious yokel at $1 per yank. O le can always start from home in 'a top buggy and be sure of getting back before the week is out. There are many nice things about the top buggy, but it is too slow for the present generation. If they ever make a top buggy which will get up to sixty miles an hour within a block from the tape, more will be sold and there will also be a perceptible and re freshing thinning out of the crop of s'toed maniacs. lacks pick up and get awav, and when Protected by The Adnnis Newspaper Service D4DWS EVENING ma ME MARY GRAHAM BOMNEB SMALL FIRE DEPARTMENT. lieiiernl .lofl're says the tide of bat tle has turned iu favor of the allies, with the (Jcimans lighting with their backs to the wall, lie does not, how ever,' place the turning of the tide at the River Soinine, as many others have done, but at the successful stand made by the French in the defense of Verdun.

That a sjicerh was necessary may be questioned in Washington; that it was necessary in Vermont is beyond doubt. The question naturally arises, there fore, as to whether it would be better to return Senator Page because he did something under the goad of a public ity canijiaign "back home," or whether a man should be elected who is willing to do things without the prod. Incidentally. Vermont editors who know- how things are done in Wash ington, are wondering what Senator Page traded to Senator Hoke Smith for the temporary glorv of beiuir vin- licated before his constituents.

Ihe public in general will Vie pleased with the sentence of a fine of $.'00 and costs and to serve from four to six months in the house of correction imposed on Harry Boyd by Judge F. E. Harbor of Hrattleboro. Boyd is the man who recently ran an automobile through Brattleboro while intoxicated and threw Mrs. W. M. Randall from his automobile, besides striking bridge, a team and injuring other peo le. Believing that a heavy enough fine could not be imposed for reckless driving, State's Attorney Hughes made the charge against him' breach of the j.eace which allowed the imposition of a fine commensurate with his offense. It looks as though the judicial depart ment of the government is ready to eo-operate with the- prosecuting ofli cers in stopping the operation of au tomobiles by intoxicated persons.

"It really was the idea of the Fairy Queen In the first place, for she told the Salamanders that they should be ashamed of themselves, to be able to put out Fires If they wanted, to not belong to a Fire Department. S they Paid they would have one themselves. which was just what the Fairy (jueen bad been hoping they would do." "What are Sala manders, Daddy?" asked Nick.

They have four legs and a tail and are very "We'll Have Our nlce' kiml aud Hose Ready." gt'"- 0 , ' "W ell, these Sal amanders agreed that they would have a Fire Department, and the next thing was to arrange for the Hose and Lad der. Finally it was decided tlmt thrdi- Snlnmander Cousins should be chosen to run the Hose and Ladder. "'We shall call ourselves the Fire and Water Fire Department,' said one of the Fire Salamanders. 'It will be our business to rush In and rescue the Animals who are in danger of being burned to death, and it will be your business to help them down to the Brook where we'll have our Hose ready to sprinkle thetn with good, cool water.' "So the Fire and Water Fire De partment of the Salamanders prac ticed and drilled and trained. They knew just what to do in case of a Fire and yet no Fire seemed to break out anywhere around the woods where they lived. The Fire Salamanders were a little bit disappointed, for they wanted to be thought fine and brave to go right into the Fire. You see, they can live just as well In Fire as not, and they don't mind it in the least bit. Days and days went by and still no Fire broke out. "'I know what's the trouble,' said another one of the Fire Salamanders. "'What?' they asked hltn. "'We have no Fire Bell,' he said. 'There may have been Fires that we knew nothing of; you never can tell.' "'Don't be gloomy.' said still another Fire Salamander. 'We'll have a Fire Bell.' " 'Where?' some of them asked. " 'It will be down by the Brook, and whenever there is a Fire in the neigh borhood whatever Animal sees it will go and ring the Bell. I know where a hind old Cow left her Bell from last year. Well put it by the stump just at the edge of the Brook and all the Animals can be told to move it when there is a Fire. Then we will all come out and stop the Fire.' " 'Splendid idea ! they shouted. And soon notices were put up all over the woods and around the Brook which read : "'To the Animals: Attention! In rase of Fire, ring the Cow Bell by the Brook. The Fire and Water Fire De partment of the Salamanders will TUT IT OUT.' "These notices were read by all the Animals, and the very next day the Salamanders heard the Cow Bell. "'Where's the fire?' they all shouted. "'Over there,' said Grandfather Frog, who was watching the Fire De partment start off. "They wiggled and crawled as quick ly as they could to the spot where the Fire was. It was the Vireo family's nest. You know the Vireos are those beautiful, shy Birds that live in the Woods aud have such love ly voices.

He says that the Hoke Smith vocational educational bill is on the senate calendar, bat that it will not be acted on this session." This information, received by The Allen M. Fletcher Senatorial Club, presented the condition as it then existed in Washington. The following news item appeared in the St. Albans Messenger on Friday, August 4: "Washington, Aug. 4. The vocational educa tional bill which passed the senate the other day without debate or notice of any kind, is to be pressed upon the House in an eleventh hour at tempt to secure enactment before the adjourn ment of Congress. It had been thought that the Senate calendar was too crowded to allow room for this bill at this time, and the plan had been to postpone the en actment of this legislation till the December ses sion. Favorable reports on the bill were made some weeks ago by both committees which handled it." Is it not true, Senator Page, that the Smith Vocational Educational bill would have passed the Senate if you had not spoken or voted for it? Is it not true, Senator Page, that for purely political purposes you at this time urged yourself upon the Senate to make a speech upon a bill which had been favorably reported and which as the St. Albans Messenger news item says, "Passed the Senate the other day without notice of any kind." We have no disposition to minimize the im portance of any bill which provides better educa tional facilities for the youth of the land, but we respectfully suggest that Senator Page's record is the issue and in the words of the Vergennes En terprise, "Senator Page's Vocational Educational bill was a fizzle and was lost in the shudle."
