THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1920.
. i' i OYSTER SHELLS The demand for Crushed Oyster Shells is growing very rapidly and the following interesting article is an explanation of it: The Department of Agriculture reMrts that an experiment run at the New York State Colleye of Agriculture at Cornell University for a period of 20 weeks, showed where a flock of 10 Leghorn hens, fed Crushed Oyster Shells in ad d''pn o tl'e'r other feed during that time, yielded 508 eggs, while a pen of the same number and breed of hens, fed their regular ration without the crushed oyster shells, yielded only 137 eggs in the same length of time, showing an increase of about 75 per cent in the production of eggs where crushed shells were fed. .This ex periment proves the value of the use of Crushed Oyster Shells in the ration of the laying hen.

He describes Dr. I, add is a son of New England who has :i 'id sense of the reality of t lie fanner 'ononiic difficulties and who proposes- (1 his part to remedy them. 1 f.add 'wnsr leted by the-eXon-:,artisaa league whiel is strong in that -tate and ff this league President But erfield says in parti There is no doubt but the program of 'e Non-l'artisaii league is radical, noj ' at it has deliberately invoked the prin M'le of state control and even of state nvnorship and given it a wide appli ation. However, the great mass of the 'armers who have adhered to the league re not Socialists: they are not even con cioiisly socialistic in their program, '"hey are not trying to "put over" the ocia'istie scheme. They are in rebellion rainst a system of distribution that - !!rod them year otit and year in. and 'at without much doubt was deliberately lanageil to their disadvantage. M,'ireover. the league, as a whole, i imply a rather extreme expression of n agrarian movement that is getting "der way very rapidly. It is a matter "t to be trilled with. It will not be ' -wned by abuse, but only by sympa hetic attention to the difficulties which or farmers face and hv constructive leg-;-lation to assist. The Non-Partisan 'o'giie itsr'f may go out of business, but he movement of revolt of which it is ii expression is only lginning. That the farmers are in rebellion against 'ho scheme of distribution that has 'ouged them year after year and that Tives 1- the speculator much better re turns than to the producer is an encour aging hit of news. It is probable, how ever, they will learn that this is an eco nomic rather than a political task and the reorganization of distribution must he made on a business basis. For this reason the Non-Partisan league is likely to go out of business and if business methods are substituted for politics th movement of revolt which President Put terliehl sees may be carried to success. Black Diamonds D EXPLOITATION OF I-AHOK. It is estimated that Robert P. Urin dell. "labor king" of New York city, in the past six months has received an in--ome of $4S2.(1, of which .tllUOO is fees and dues from laborers and !s(VJ,(i21 graft levied from contractors for influ- -nce in getting contracts or to prevent -strikes on contracts. These facts are set forth in the reiort of the lVckwood 'ousing committee which has been in--estigating housing conditions in that city. Mr. Brindell has posed as the friend f labor to the labor unions and as the lietator of lalor to the contractors. Vet he has made a great deal more money Mian any laborer he has claimed to he :iend. He has simply exploited labor ,-' -ns and robbed the members. It would that such robbery in the name of iii.-m would go a long way towards discrediting it and convincing the indi idual laborer that he is his own best master. ii! ' vJl j vliere the best work among boys and girls is done in Vermont. Neither north western or southeastern Vermont had a prize winner at the exposition and these eetions should attempt another year to vin a place of honor in this great work f boy and girl development. The fact that two Vermont university students were overcome bv a deadly gas 'eently while fighting a fire with chem ' band fir extinguishers, has led to vf rm'iti' n on the subject which oor! nti-i h'tber-to be-n nnnown to 1 ' e:age jierson. It is said by author- ies on tire apparatus that the use of -uch extinguishers in fighting fires inside ' closed room is dangerous as the gas I'hich escapes is deadly, but that they .re valuable where gasoline or electricitv s concerned in the fire or where the :re is in the open. Today's Events In the election news of the state it is "nteresting to note, the large number of 'vomen !0 or more years of age, who voted, getting out to the polls despite the' infirmities "due to their advanced ears. For some of them it will be their last as well as their hrst ballot, one woman from the town of Thetford bc- ;ng 101. We wonder if the youthful voter just turned 121 took any more in ' crest in the outcome than did these wo men who had watched the suffrage fight from its beginning? If the citizens of one Oregon city had been wondering what the women would lo they know now. Under a general in dictment of inefficiency the women or ganized a campaign Against the men of oce holders and carried it on so quietly that their opponents did not realize what was taking place until the votes were counted, disclosing that a woman had been elected mayor as veil as an entire municipal ticket of women chosen. Thus far this season Secretary Black has taken from automobile drivers 205 licenses and has received reports show ing that 132 persons have been convicted in Vermont of breaking the automobile laws.

"It is ridiculous to say that the run ning of liquor from Canada into this country cannot be stopped. If the of ficers are really honest in their efforts there can be no excuse for anv ouantitv of liquor coming over the line. It all depends on how vigorous the officers are. They can stop the game if they really set out to-lo it." Burlington Clipper. The Messenger cannot help but feel that this is an absolutely unwarranted indictment of a body of men who. instead of being pounded, are entitled to praise tor what they nave accomplished with the limited means at their command. Up here in St. Albans where we know per sonally the men in the customs force re flection on their honestv and lovaltv is resented. The truth of the matter is, the force is not large enough to make the boundary line leak proof. These men work night and clay, in stormv weather and fair, and are at all times open to the nodiiy attacks ot desperate smugglers. And their pay is not commensurate either with the work or the risk they run.
