i r . 4 " 0 The Certain-teed Guarantee as a Basis for Estimating Roofing Cost The Certain-teed guarantee provides a basis fcr estimat ing the approximate cost per year Qf your new rocf. Certain-teed Roofing, Number 3 Heavy, is guaranteed for fifteen years. It usually lasts longer. Taking fifteen years as the assured life and dividing the unusually low cost of Certain-teed, as compared to most modern types of roofing, by this figure, ycu readily see how economical Certain-teed is. The light and medium weights of Certain-teed are also guaranteed, five years for the former and ten years fcr the latter. In addition to its durability, Certain-teed is weather-proof, fire-retarding and spark-proof. And it costs less to buy, less to lay and less to maintain than any other type of good roofing. See a Certain-teed dealer about roofing. If he hasn't enough of the weight you want in stock ho can quickly get more from a nearby Certain-teed warehouse or distributing center.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7. There are 352,421 inhabitants in Vermont, according to the announcement made by the census bureau. In the census of 1910 the pop ulation of the Green Mountain state was given as 355,956, the 1920 census show ing a loss in the state of 3,535, or minus 1 per cent. In the decade ending with 1910 the population of Vermont was 355,950, rank in it as 42nd etaate in the Union. In the first census in 1790 Vermont ranked as 12th state. Vermont's increase in population in 1910 was 12,315 or 3.6 per cent over 1900. In area Vermont ranked as 42nd state in 1910 with 9,124 square miles of land, making its popula tion per square mile 39.0 inhabitants. In the early censuses there was a very rapid growth in Vermont. During the 20 years from 1790 to 1810 the absolute in crease in population was 132,470, while during the century from 1810 to 1910 the increase was only 138,061. Between 1810 and 1S50 the increase was 90,255, or 44.2 per cent; from 1850 to 1910 the increase was 41.830, or 13.3 per cent. The in crease in those six decades was not evenly distributed, as in three of them the absolute increase was less than 2,000 persons, and the relative increase for each of those three decades was less than 1 per cent. Comparison of the rates of increase for the state with those for the United States shows that the increase for the whole country for the decade ending with 1910 was almost six times the rate of increase for the state: and that at every census from 1810 to 1910 the rate of growth for the state has been much lower than that for the country as a whole. wrmont s population in r.nu was a little more than four times as large a? in 1790, when the first census was taken while the population of the United States in 1910 was more than 23 times that in 17,00. ' When the first census was taken 1790 Vermont had 8.5 per cent of the total population of the New England states, which was 1,009,408. In 1810 the New England states contained 1,471,973 inhabitants and Vermont 8 proportion, after 20 years of rapid growth, was 14.8 per cent. A hundred years later, in 1910 in an aggregate population of 0.552,081 in the New England states, Vermont was represented by 5.4 per cent of the whole. In the years since the first census in 1790 the population of the New England states has multiplied only a little more than four times. The record of Vermont's growth fol lows: Two .Women and a Man Killed by a Slide of Shale in Cave of Wind3. NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y., Sept. 7. Two women and a man were crushed to death and two men were injured yester day afternoon when a slide of shale forced out a bridge leading to one of the stair ways in the Cave of the Winds under Niagara Falls. A hundred or more tourists who were in the cave at the time had narrow es capes, many being bruised and cut by the falling rock. " The dead are A. Hartman, Brooklyn; his' wife, Louise Hartman, and Clara M. Faust, Pittsburgh.; ; ' v.. The injured are: T. W. Lee, Pittsburgh and Frank ' E. Haehlirig, Detroit. The dead and injured were members of a party: of i tourists just completinc; a tour pf the cave. With a guide leading, the party "was in the middle of one of the four bridges in . the cave when the slide came, its noise drowned by the roar of the cataract. The Ruide was not touched by the slide, and his first inti mation of it came from the screams ' of the women in the party. To recover the bodies of the dead it was necessary to take a rowboat from the steamer ilaid of the Mist, which had Wen run up as near as possible to the falls and cave. It was' a hazardous ven ture, but the rowboat crew finally brought the bodies out of the pool and regained the steamer. Should a British peer ever be sen tenced, to death for some criminal of fense, and become liable to -. tho last penalty of the law, he can demand ns his right that a silken cord bo used in stead of the ordinary hempen rope.
