I j I President Wilson will have an oppor ' tunity to ehange his cabinet. Tlie ' cor.utry will nppiove of several changes, feeling that there itc misfits in the I ecllection at tlie present time. Tlie Manchester Pnion expresses the h"po that the managers of the New Kngland fruit show, now being held in Moutpelier, will not overlook the fact that Tommy Atkins of the Moutpelier j An;', s is a poach.

Inle.s congress is called in special .-es.di u nest spring, these newly elected i oi.gre'.suieii, including Miss Kankiu of Montana, will not get an opportunity ti. appear in the spotlight until a year from next mouth. The government ruiing is that whenever a woman is in charge of a postollice she is postmaster. I'robably a similar application will be made i( mo mie :t a iemaie who is a member of the national house of repre sentatives. 1 One weather prophet says that De cember will be an ideal month lor out door life iii the northern belt of states J and warn weather prevail long after i '1 hri'iksgiving.

Football is a strenuous game at! any time, but it is rather of an unusu al condition even in Vermont for the players to be obliged to shovel the snow off the field, as was the case Mon day after the heavy storm in Burling ton. The Philadelphia Public Ledger discussing the political outcome of last week, takes a very broad and healthy view of it effect on parties when it savs: mis wholesale mlusion or the spirit of progressivism and of independ ence cannot fail to be a wholesome one, not only for the Republican party, but for national politics in the broader sense.

This is a thought worth cherishing. A few months ago all the newspapers were spying it was a great year for a man in public life who bore the name Hughes. Australia's Premier Hughes Was leading his people. Charles E. Hughes was the choice of the great re publican party for its presidential nom inee and (Sen. Sir ISam Hughes was the whole thing in a military way in Cana da. .Now all the Hugheses have had reverses. Australia's Hughes barely iiucnuw i uu'i uui 11 n t liil am U'fls i nTnfltod - "i ..-..wv..

Sir Sam Hughes has had to hand in his resignation from the ministry of militia in Canada. It turns out to be a year of ill luck for the Hugheses in several sections of the world. Cold weather is approaching, but that is no reason why people should slu t their doors and windows and heat their houses to a temit'rature far above that which prevails in the summer months. There is much more sickness in New England states in winter months than at any other time of year, for tlie reason that people do not get ii'.tn the invigorating air, but fill their lungs day alter day and night after night with the vitiated and over-heated atmosphere indoor. ' Fortunately there has been a great improvement in the mode of living during the winter, many people now sleeping in rooms where the windows are raised. There is a chance, however, to cut down both sickness and the death rate bv making a little effort to got fresh air. even if it is stinging coia. The End of the Milk War. (Manchester Cnion.) The strife over milk prices between the Huston contractors and the New Knglaud Milk Producers' association is undoubtedly brought to its close by the vote of the directors of the association recommend to the dairymen that thev accept the prices offered by five Boston fin. is and resume shipment of milk. The prices virtually meet the demands ol tlie producers, the only difference be ing one of deliverv details in P-oston. T!i" estimate of Richard Pattee of La- conia, secretary of the New England Miik Producers' association that the producers will receive about 200.000 :i:oe for their milk this winter than ci ty received a year ago, suggest the wisdom ot the directors recomineniia- ioa. There can be no manner of .quest ion that this victory of the milk producers has been won bv organization. The contractors realize this; the public real izes it, and the realization on the part of the producers themselves is illus trated in the vote of the dire-tevs to ( ail a conference of all the dairv inter est of New England at Springfield, Massachusetts, November 2S for the purpose of forming a greater New Eng land milk organization to include all fanners producing milk for New Eng Ian 1 markets. The power of the organ ization has been clearlv demonstrated in this milk war, and it is the evident determination of the New England Milk Producers' association to enhance that power to Hi; full. It may be a long time ere another serious dispute over milk prices shnll nii'e or it may not. In any event, tl-." farmers are manifesting the spirit of preparedness, and it can hardly fail to occur to them that organiza tion, so effective in this instance, is polentially as effectual in cither matters pertaining to agricultural interests, as in the dairy industry. Organization, in these days, is the secret of success in every human activity political, religions, industrial and all. It is well that the farmers of New England have convinced themselves of its eliicacv. To Abolish Gretna Green. (Kutland Herald.) It seems to the Herald that the good people ot Hollows falls are losing a h.t of sleep over a very simple matter when they undertake to make a legis lative issue out of the reputation which their town has gained as the (iretna Green of Vermont. The fact that, out of 73."? marriages pertormed since January, 700 have been of couples outside the state, seems to be the basic cause for the atr- itation. What of it? Outside of the 'Ji mi-humorous comment of the news papers, what harm is done, provided ahvays that the parties are of mature age If a Vermont town were becoming the Mecca of a divorce industry, there would be cause for protest, but who will go so far as to make it more dif ficult" for young people, resolved on marriage, to accomplish that result? In fact, a very sensible Driest has pointed out the remedy, so far as the clergy is concerned, when he refuses to marry such couples without certifi cates from their Darish Driest. The j clergymen have it largely in their own the magnitude ot their fees, which is not likely. With a largp amount of extremely important legislation coming before the general assembly, it would not be amiss to urge, most 'earnestly, that the state of Vermont should not be asked to legislate for the benefit of Bellows Falls.

Civilization is generally conceded to be a good thing when it does not go too far. There is such a thing, however, as getting civilized to such an extent that there is no chance- to rest up this side of the evergreen shore. When civ ilization was first introduced to this continent in small, furtive doses, the entire washing for a family of nine children could be clone in a pint cup and there was no ironing whatever ex cept when some small boy was smoothed out over the knee of an out raged parent. Yet people in those days lived just as long as they do now aiid were not obliged to halt' in tlie midst of the mid-week bath and yell for a fresh stock of towels. This teaches us that the more civilized we get the hard er it is to draw a full breath. The family wash is composed of everything in the house that has not Protected by The Adams DADDY'SMINS 4 VMARY"' GRAHAM 'BONNER ELF AND SWALLOWS. "Three little Swallows," said Daddy, "lived with their Mother in a Nest in the Chimney of a Farm-I louse. "The nest was one of the most won derful you can imagine, for It was built of Sticks, and there were little Patches and Dabs of Glue everywhere. "You see, when the Swallows make their Nests they get a great manv Sticks together first just as so many j other Birds and little Creatures do. But then while they are putting the Sticks together to make a Nest and putting them across from each other, they take their Bills and Rub them around and around the Nest. This makes the queer Glue we can see oa the Nests of Chimney Swallows. "Well, Mrs. Swallow had one of the finest Nests in the World, and certain ly she had chosen a very nice Chimney Home for it was stIU warm enough not to build a Fire in the Room that Chimney belonged to. Mrs. Swallow was sure of that. "As she was feeding her three Chil dren, along came a little Elf. " 'Hello, Mrs. Swallow, said the Elf. "The Swallow gave a shrill Cry, and all the little Swallows squealed for all they were worth even though their Eyes were not yet open and they didn't She Liked Talking. see to whom their Mother was speak ing. "Tm not going to hurt your Chil dren,' said the Elf. I like Chimney Swallows yes, I do.' " 'Oh, do you really?' said Mrs. Swal low. She seemed to know the Elf meant it, and so she said: 'Would you like to have a look at my Nest? It is quite a beautiful one.' "The Elf looked at the Nest and ad mired it greatly. 'How can you ever do so much with your Fingers?' asked the Elf. 'It seems wonderful to me to think of being able to make a Nest like that, and to put all that wonderful Glue on it, too. Don't you get youi Hands sticky?' ....... FAIRYME PONT FI6HT pot POOR our LRann boon rur; through the wringer since last Monday. It begins to 3ccumulate just as soon as the clothesline has been robbed of its precious cargo. The ra pidity with which the average family wash will gather momentum and bulk is enough to cause a courageous house- wire to taint on the cellar steps. As most ot the fanulv wash is caused bv tlie heartless actions of the male mem- i'ois or trie household, who use four towels and three wash rags everv time they shave, a law compelling " every husband to do the washing and ironing would do more good than a large armv and navy. There are only two ways bv which a weary wife can escape the family wash. One is by going visiting and the other is by clogging the nearest steam laun dry. It is a great boon to be able to send a family washing that would choke a three-story silo to the laundrv and have it returned home two davs later with an ot the buttons and stains intact. peach Newspaper Service The Swallow almost fell off tor of the Chimney where she was sitting, so hard did she laugh. And the little Swallows, in their shrill little Voices, laughed too, for the first time in their lives. "'Little Creature, who are you?' asked Mrs. Swallow. "Tm Effle Elf.' "'Well, and who am I?' "'You're Mrs. Chimney Swallow,' said the Elf. '" 'And will yon please take another look, and tell me where my Hands are that will get so Sticky, and where my Fingers are to make a nest with?' "'To be sure, to be sure,' said the Elf. 'How very, very stupid of me! Of course you haven't any Fingers at all. And you can't get your Hands Sticky, when you haven't any Hands. How do you ever manage?' '"Well, ni tell you,' said Mrs. Chimney Swallow, for she liked talk ing to the gentle little Elf. "'In the first place,' she continued, 'I have Feet to use instead of Fingers ! They do just as well ! And I make that Glue you see by rubbing my Beak around my Nest. The Glue conies from my Beak! Isn't that fine?' '"Marvelous, said the little Elf. 'I think your Nest is one of the finest I have ever seen. " 'And I am so glad you like it,' said the Chimney Swallow. "But just then the most terrible yelling and screaming was heard. "'Oh, what can have happened'' asked Effie Elf. "'Nothing,' said Mrs. Chimney Swal low. 'My dears have very strorjg Voices. They can make a great deal of noise when they are wee, wee birds with no strength at all. But just now I believe they want to Fly. I promised I would Teach them this afternoon, for then we're going to Move to an other Home. "'Oh, will you let me watch you?' asked the Elf. "'Indeed, yes!' said Mrs. Chimney Swallow. 'And then Effie Elf watched the three little Swallows have their Les sons in Flying. Soon they did so well that she said : 'Wron't you all come over to Elfland this Evening before it is quite Dark, and we'll have a fine Sup per Party for you all. I'll tell the Elves to hurry to get together all the Goodies that Swallows like best! We keep a Book made out of Moss and Birch Bark, and in the Book we have a list of the favorite Dishes of all the I'.irds, Animals, Fairies, Brownies, Gnomes, Fishes and every Creature you can think of.'
