I The press of the state is giving much attention to a statement by an alleged farmer in a newspaper supporting Cur tis S. Emery for the governorship that industries injure the farmers of Ver mont. This alleged farmer is reported to have said we do not wiant more in dustries but more agricultural pro ducts to bring prices down so that living -will not cost so much. If any farmer, or any resident of Vermont for that matter, made such a statement it is surprising. In the first place Vermont , farmers do not believe that lower prices for ther products would be beneficial to them. Further more, most farmers know that the best markets for their produce is in the industrial centers near their homes, the nearer the better. The farmers also know that live in dustries are established to supply a public demand. If the people of Ver mont will not conduct these necessary industries the people of some other state will. Tf Vermonters are unwill ing to have their own people polish the marble and granite dug out of the Ver mont hills, make the fine pipe organs fo much in demand, construct the scales for a rapidly growing commerce, man; ufaeture cotton and woolen goods, wood products and similar things, they can not prevent people of other states from doing it. Should these useful indus tries be removed from Vermont their skilled employes would not turn to the production of agricultural crops. They would follow the industries to their new homes and move the farmer's mar ket just so much farther away from his farm. " . The value of home markets was very clearly proved in the article recently published in the Reformer,, phowrng that New Hampshire raised potatoes, dressed fowls, milk products, "beans and hay sold for from 10 to 12 per cent more in the industrial cities of New Hampshire than in Boston. Undoubt edly the same thing is true in !the Ver mont industrial centers. Discouragement of industry here irueans a smaller and poorer Vermont. The only places showing growth in pop ulation and wealth during the past decade are the industrial sections of the state. The purely agricultural sections have not maintained their population, supported their schools or constructed their highways. To take away the in dustrial life of the state would further deplete these agricultural sections and make Vermont a smaller and less pros perous state. Fersons who advocate such things are simply little Vermon ters who are not very popular with the mass of live and enterprising residents. LEAGUE OF NATIONS ISSUE. If the Wilson league of nations cove irant had been ratified by the United States senate, today this country would be asked to join Great Britain in sup pressing the Nationalist party in Tur key, (or more likely to suppress that powerful body ourselves) bear our pro portion of the 35,000,000-pound appro priation England has made to subdue Mesopotamia also of the expense of France's eighty battalious despatched fo subdue the Arabians and Syrians in Syria, bear alone the expense of sub- D Cop)-rti(li' ' " duing Armenia and take our part in protecting the Foles from the Bolshe viki. . That is the kind of a league Governor Cox is committed to support and advo cate before the American people. Senator Harding in his speech of ac ceptance said: "It is better to be the free and disinterested agent of inter national justice and advancing civil ization, with a covenant of conscience, than be shackled by a written compact which surrenders our freedom of action and givs- to a military alliance the right to proclaim America 's duty to the world. No surrender' of .rights to a world council or its military alliance, no assumed mandatory however ap pealing, ever shall summon the sons of this republic to war. Their supreme sac rifice shall only be asked for America and its call of honor. There is a sanc tity in that right we will not delegate." Here the American people have the league of nations issue clearly defined and there is little doubt what their answer .will be. m The "Waterbury Record makes what seems to be a good and practical sug-- o-Pstion. that farmers situated on the 1 trunk lines of automobile travel set ' are beyond he authority of the local up a tent or two in some attractive .'.traffic policeman.

And when they return to the crowded, noisy city they will brag just as violently alwut the country scenes they have left behind them. The half-dried creek in which they wade will become a regular river, the haystacks they climb will reappear in later narratives as miles high, the wood lots they berry in will grow into impenetrable forests. Nothing will remain untouched by the glorious imagination of thrilled childhood. The only thing for the kindly hosts and hostesses of such little visitors to be cer tain of is that the youngsters have some thing worth bragging about.

"In The Day's News." The venerable Cardinal Gibbons of 'Baltimore, who reaches his eighty-sixth milestone today, has long been recog nized as one of the foremost Ameri cans. Few citizens of. the United States have exerted such, a strong in fluence abroad as he. To mention his nariie",ny where- in America or in Tau rope evokes tributes i which 'come "qually from Protestants and Catho lics. Few will question the assertion that he occupies in the hearts of his count rvmen a position seldom before reached by any American churchman. The Cardinal is a native of Baltimore ind received his education chiefly in 'he Catholic institutions of that city. Recently he entered upon his 60th year :n the priesthood and his 3.1th year in the cardinalate. With one exception he ;s now the oldest member of the Sac red college of cardinals, both in years and in point of service.

The "governor gave but a brief speech" at Plymouth, Vt., the other day. It will be remembered that Lincoln gave but a brief speech at Gettysburg; but the world knows that little speech by heart today. Governor Coolidge's few remarks at Plymouth are likely to be remembered long. They went to the heart of a mat ter that all men and women feel. They brought up the country air, the country faith, the country sincerity, and all the things that go with the country inheri tance. "It is a great heritage to be reared here in the hills of Vermont," said Gov ernor Coolidge; "to be given the thrift, and understanding, and all that is noblest to mankind." The farmer and especially the farmer on the New England hills does every stroke of his work in the eye of Nature and her promises. If he had not faith as well as thrift, he would not farm at all. In a sense, he has to be born to it in order to do it, or to do elsewhere the things that are founded upon it. The grit comes bv inheritance. "And I am here, as you know," the governor of Massachusetts went on, speaking to his old neighbors, "by right of birth; Vermont is my birthright, and it is a noble and high birthright for all to have. Living up to it entails a very great obligation, for here one get 9 close to nature, in the mountains, in the brooks, the waters of which hurry to the sea, in the lakes shining like silver in their green setting, fields tilled not by machinery but by the brain and hand of man. It all goes into the child of the hills, and comes out in resolution and -achievement. It all came out when Dewey threaded the channel of Manila; it came out when Coolidge, havinff put his hand to the plough on Beacon Hill, kept the furrow going straight through 'the ranks of the striking policemen, who did not know a "side-hill plough" from a lianrlsaw. "In the Rchoolhouse up yonder, a mon nment to popular education," so the governor went on "in the church across the way, ignorance and aggression are done away with. There the young are laugnt to realize the educational condi tions of law and order and the great privilege of being Americans, going on aa Americans, faithful to themselves and all mankind." Just that ; going on, and the glory of it, as Americans. That is the way the people are going on. They will like the messaage from the hills, for their heritage is about the same as the gov ernor's. It is a heritage of simple pa triotic determination of law and order, with thrift and prosperity. A little speech, but big enough for all the people to stand on as a platform. Busy Inspectors. (Morrisville Messenger.) Secretary Black is very liable to make him.self unpopular with the joy riders, speed maniacs, and breakers of the au tomobile laws, if he does not call off his field inspectors. When thev hold up 211 one day, 304 the next, and 117 another day, it is evident a lot of autoists are not obeying the law. Most, however, are for slight infractions not having their license with them, etc. Inaccurate Returns. (Bennington Banner.) The census reports state that Bel lows' Falls has lost population during the past ten years. Frankly, we do hot believe it. The. census reports this vear are not accurate. The census was taken at the wrong time of year and 'he pay of the enumerators Was so poor that they did make a thorough canvass. Except in a few towns the census was far from being a complete count. Bel town Falls undoubtedly has more people than it had in J910. , . . , , . Never Too Many. (Barre Times.) 4 The present scarcity of "old" pota toes makes that estimated eight per cent increase in Vermont's 1920 crop look as if it! might come in handy a year from now. Sometimes we think we are raising too many potatoes for the market, but before the year in fin ished we generally . find that the sup posed too many were not enough. That eight per cent increase will be taken care of easily. Prolwbly the most famous of all fish is "Pelorus Jack," a grampus which regu larly piloted ships into Pelorus Sound, New Zealand, and was finally, after about thirty years service, protected by a Special act cf Darliaoitat in 1904 " CONQUERS RHEUMATISM It is an established fact that one teaspoonful of Kheuma taken once a day for a very short time has driven all the pain and agony from thousands of racked, crippled and despairing rheumatics.

If you are feeling rundown, weak, nervous, tired-in-the-morning, and gen erally ailing, these are the symptoms that should warn you to take care of your health. Four persons in every ten are needing more phosphorus in their bodies. When you see thin and fretful people; or those who are anaemic, pale, frail, oft despondent or lacking in energy, you may look for the need of certain element that make for a strong constitution. Some people, after relying upon preparations composed chiefly of salts, quinine, drastic drugs, iron, calomel, cod liver oil, etc., wonder why they find no benefit. That, is easily ex plained by the fact that such persons need the phosphoric element, which is a most potent essential to health, and contained in B1TKO FHOSPHATE, the famous health preparation. Now obtainable everywhere. The right thing for you to do is make a trial of BITRO-PHOSPHATE beginning at once.
