WASHINGTON, Nov. lo. Presi dent Wilson blamed middlemen for the high cost of foodstuffs here last night in a speech welcoming to Washington the convention of the National Grange, and in urging farmers to increase their output, the President said: ve ougnr to raise such lug crops that circumstances like the present can never recur, when men can make it ap pear as if the supply was so short that the middleman could charge for it what he pleased. It will not do to le nig gardly with the rest of the world in re spect to its food supply." President Wilson did not mention re cent pennons to mm to declare an em bargo on exportation of foodstuffs from the Cnited States, and he did .not refer even indirectly to the outcome of the presidential election. "It seems to me," said the President, "that some of the most interesting problems of our life and of the life of the world lie before us, problems in con nection with which the farmers of the Fnited States will play a part such as they have never played before. "It goes without saying that the phys ical life of the nation has always de pended upon the farm. It goes with out saying, also that to a large extent the physical life of the world has drawn its sustenance from the great areas of farm land in the Fnited States.- We have sent food to all parts of the world, and the American farmer has contribut ed to the life of all the countries of the world. IJ nt you know that as our own population has increased the proportion in which we could help foreign countries as contrasted with oar own has de creased, and there are problems that are comparable with the problems of states manship lying ahead of the farmers of the United Mates. "In the future we have got to bring more of the area of the Fnited States under cultivation than is under cultiva tion now. We have got to increase the product at every point where it is sus ceptible of being increased. "I wish that all problems of govern ment were displayed in as clear lines of duty as this problem of government with regard to how the farmer ought to be treated is displayed. I wish, for example, that foreign affairs wore as simple as agriculture. The great satis faction about what you have to discuss is that when once your duty is deter mined we have got a great force of in telligem-e to go forward in the line of duty. i .. " The. thing that makes a free country vital is the large number of people who got together to do important things without asking the leave of the govern ment to do them. The striking thing about a great country like the Fnited States is that if the government neglect ed everything, the people would do it; that you do not beckon to the peo ple of the Fnited States, they command you to go on, and things that are neglected they have got plenty of brains to get together and do for themselves." EDUCATIONAL VALUE OF GOOD BOOKS Practical Education to Be Gained by Familiarity with, One's Own Li brary Illustrated Bible. l ew there are who realize the exten sive knowledge that can be gained through nn occasional reference to what might be termed commonplace books. There is probably not a family in Hrat ; tleboro that does -.not possess et least , one such volume that is seldom referred , to, or that is possibly concealed in I some hiding place where it is not even , seen, except at such times as there is , a general house-cleaning. Run over in rr mind the titles of some of these the Bible and Shakespeare; h.rdlv a quotation used in literature that is'not. taken from one of these works," and fJ r : A2 5 .i Scene from A. H.

The Reformer is now offering the New Illustrated Bible, a volume that is unique in that it completely illustrates the subject wl nich each pic- ture accompanies. The alone cost if.jti.iHiO. It is illustrations j (ossicle to embellish a book without actually ilhis trating it. This Bible is not merely em bellished; it is truly and accurately il lustrated. Other Bibles there are con taining pictures; none other in which the individual texts are actually il luminated, as though by the touch of inspiration. Comparison is impossible, for this new Bible stands alone there is no other of its kind. Therefore, praise of this superb new book means no disparagement of the many excel lent editions published heretofore. Nor is this superiority surprising; for more than lot) of the world's greatest ar tists, working under the advice of ar chaeologists and historians of wide renown, have contributed the choicest products of their skill and genius to prodme this grand triumph of artistic beauty and perfection in historical de tail. These pictures are not mere re productions of mediaeval frescoes and more or less familiar modern photo graphs, inserted at random; they have been specially made, jn the light of exact knowledge, to illustrate selected texts in accordance with the matured belief- of the greatest living scientist"". It must be rem-inbered that this new Bible also contains everv essential special feature that trives peculiar val ue to tho best of ordinary Bibles, such as marginal references, descriptive helps, and beautifully colored m;es.

This was the way the 'r.lisn goldsmiths did busi ness. - - i But things aren't so simple today. More and more the banker is sub ject to governmental regulation. For banirs are so necessary to the wel fare of the community and so full of possibilities for good or evil that they are classed among the "public utilities" and subjected to govem merital oversight. We still nav private unincorporated banks, but the states are tending to put them under the same restrictions as the incor porated hanks, and there are few of them which do a commercial banking business. So in most cases, the man who wants to start a bank has to get a char ter. Under the National law in a town of Brattleboro 's size thi3 means that he must get at least four other persons to join with him, and be tweea them they must subscribe for at least $100,000 of stock. This is the minimum set by lew. Some capital would be necessary in any event, for a bank like a grocery store has to have some money to start with. But the law requires this money to be paid in in cash, not so much with, the idea of giving the bank funds to do business with as to provide a re serve fund from which depositors may be reimbursed if any of the bank's investments turn out badly.
