WIFE OVERJOYED AT HI SREGOVERY Somerville Says He Feels Same Way About What Tanlac Has Done For Him '"My tvifp is so overjoyed at the way my health has been it-stored that she tells everybody she sees about Tanlac," said S. .1. Somerville, a prominent citi zen of St. Johusbury, Vt., living at .' l'rosrieet Ave. - "Well. I feel the same way about it for the way the medicine has built me up is simply astonishing. I had a bad c:o of tin winter before last and again last winter. All of this left me in . a completely run-down condition, with no strength or energy whatever. .My appetite was gone, my stomach all out of order and. in fact, it looked like I was going to be a chronic dyspep tic. I also had such paipitatiou or me. heart 1 became seriously alarmed. I; suffered a great deal from constipation., my head got to swimming so at times 1 could hardly stand up, and my nerves just went all to pieces. I had rheuma tism in every part of my body and felt so stiff and painful in the mornings II could hardly move. My condition was' truly alarming. "Bui Tanlac has changed things right about for me. My wife says my appe tite beats anything she ever saw, and what 1 cat does me good, for 1 feel splendid now. My rheumatism has gone and so have all my other aches and pains and I never suffer from constipa tion, nervousness, dizziness or palpita tion of the heart. Tanlac is going to be mv standbv from now on."' Tanlac is sold in Urar'"boro by the Ilrattlcboro Drug Co.. in South TiOiulon derrv by Ceorge (J. Smith, in Jamaica l.v 11. J.

Simple Phosphate Supplies Strength and Energy Building- Elements That Modern Foods Lack. Just one or two little tablets of real organic phosphate dispensed in drug stores under the name of Bitro-I'hnsphate taken with each meal is probably just what you need to cause you to jump out of bed in the morning eager for the industrial battle of the day. Modern foods lack sufficient phosphorus, and that is why 40 per cent of men and women today are nervous, weak and run down. Bitro-l'hosphate is safe to take and lirattleboro Drug Co., or any good druggist can supply it at reasonable cost. EXCLUSIVE UNDERTAKING EMBALMERS Automobile Service Tel. 2G4-W BRATTLEBORO, VT.

(Continued from Page 1.) the collective views of the large number of members of the organization who attend ed the hearings. While the views ex pressed at these hearings differed widely n inanv tonics, there was in fact a una nimity of sentiment in favor of continuing the work of the organization, expressed , even more forcibly than at the mass meet ing Nov. 1T. It was repeatedly suggested that the organization undertake a more delinite program of accomplishment in the future than had been taken in the past with a view of putting on its record of things done something so imjwrtant and obvious that it would serve every member as an immediate answer to the frequently asked question. "What has the Chamber 01 Commerce ever accomplished ?" I Accomplishments. A careful survey of the records of the organization since its formation 16 years ago resulted in a list of achievements too ' long to incorporate in a report of this kind. The record contains many things vhieh have had a vital influence on the town's growth and prosperity and could not have been accomplished unless there had been an organization of this kind to undertake them. In the first year of the organization, for example, it was instrumental in averting the drastic increase in fire insurance rates which fire companies endeavored to spread over the entire country to retrieve their losses from the San Francisco disas ter. Advances were not needed to safe guard the insurance interests in New England, and were in no way warranted by local conditions. This accomplishment alone had a considerable and definite value to every member of the organization since all members pay insurance in one form or another and would doubtless have been paying a much higher rate ever since r.MMl but for this accomplishment. t The bulk of the work entailed by the long-continued agitation which resulted in a new passenger station for this town was done by a committee representing this organization and it is safe to say that the influence which the name of the llrattle board lioard of Trade carried enabled this committee to secure much better results than would have been possible if they had dne the work merely as a group of indi viduals. The Board of Trade had a prominent part in locating here the Fort Dummer Mills, which for the past several years has distributed a larger payroll than any other industry in town. These mills have brought added income into the community ! and have benefitted either directly or in-j directly every member of the Board. j The Windham County Farm Bureau and the Brattleboro Co-operative Savings and Loan association, both live organiza tions which are playing an important part in the-welfare of our community, were originated by the Board of Trade. j The rest room, which many merchants believe to be one of the most valuable fac-' tors in making Brattleboro the trading center it is, has been liberally supported by the Board of Trade ever since its or ganization, j (iu.'st day, which was of untold benefit in promoting harmonious relations be-, tween the business interests of Brattle- boro and the residents of the suburban ter- ' ritory on which they depend for so large a measure of their support, would never have come into being if it had not been lor the Board of Trade and it is the opin- i ion of more than a few of the members that the idea is too good to be abandoned. The rates which the village now pays for its street lighting service were estab iished as a result of an expert's report which the lioard of Trade secured and paid for. The present efficient hydrant svstem is the result of the agitation which the Board of Trade started in HKJO. The fact that the freight and passenger service of the West River railroad is as good as it is at present is due to the alert ness of the board to take up cudgels in favor of shippers along the line whenever any proposal of curtailment was made by railroad authorities. These are a few of the definite things in which the Board of Trade has had an active part, but a recital of them does not give anything like an adequate idea of the almost innumerable calls which j have been made on the organization during ' its 10 years of life. Those who have served it in an official capacity can testify from experience that a week never goes j by without one or more requests for help ' and the fact that people have come into j the habit of depending on this organiza- tion for assistance is m itself the lest sort of evidence that no matter what some may say in thoughtless moments they realize down deep in their htyirts that the influence of the organization is some thing very definite in value and its bene fits are worthy many times all they have cost in time and money. . Suggested Activities. One of the defiuite questions asked at each of the hearings given by this commit tee was. "Whar definite thing could the Board of Trade d"i to help your business ?" The answers to this question were numer ous and varied and while they brought out topics having to do with individual diffi culties they showed a widespread feeling that members as individuals should ex pect to get their greatest benefit from accomplishments which help the commun ity as a whole. A frequently repeated suggestion was that the Board of Trade start an active campaign to bring about an improvement of the local station surroundings by the transfer of the freight depot from its pres ent location to the west sidi? and upper level. Better facilities for express shippers were also mentioned 'as among matters on which the Board of Trade might extend energy to advantage. It was suggested that a well-organ;zed ami actively sustained campaign for better streets, sidewalks and crossings, and a more efficient street lighting system would be an excellent thing. The need of promoting better relations with the surrounding territory, upon which Brattleboro depends to such a large extent for its mercantile trade, was still another suggestion. This is especially im portant in view of the town's geographi cal location. A considerable portion of our outside trade comes from towns which are situated in other states. We must not overlook the fact that while county interests draw Hinsdale people to Keene and Northlield people to fJreenfield. the natural and convenient place for Hins dale and Northfield people to trade is Brattleboro. We should make every effort to keep their trade coming to us. This is perhaps a good time to al'ude to the fact that Keene, Greenfield and North Adams, all of which draw in part troni the same territory that we do. have active Cham bers of Commerce, which are known to be doing everything in their power to pro mote the interests of their communities. Among those who offered opinions at the above hearings there was not one who was not outspoken in his belief that the organization should maintain its present quarters. These rooms not, only make an excellent home for the Chamber of Com merce itself and for the Farm Bureau, but they provide a meeting place for all sorts of committees and other organiza tions of a semi-public nature. To be of value, however, they must be kept open at regularly stated hours and they must be provided with proper facilities for serv ing not only the members themselves, but all visitors desiring information pertain ing to the town's resources. A list of available rooming and boarding places suouw always be kept on hand, as well an detailed information concerning all available industrial locations. Suggested Changes in Constitution and By-Laws. While our hearings revealed a differ ence of opinion as to the need of making changes in the constitution and by-laws, it may safely be said that. the majority of those who were here were in favor of going back to the namerof Board of Trade, and of providing for the nomination of di rectors by means of a .specially appointed committee instead of through the primary vote now provided by the by-laws. The suggested changes, however." are not of such importance as to need immediate ac tion, and probably could be taken up just as well at the annual meeting next spring as at the present time. In this connection it might be said that the particular ad vantage in having a committee to make nominations is that such a committee can make up its list from members who will serve if elected. The fact that the Board of Trade has been without a president for nearly a year is 111 all probability due to the election of a board of directors who had no previous knowledge that they were likely to be chosen. Budget Needed to Function Adequately. The amount of money needed to support the organization depends on the policy adopted. To maintain the present rooms and to carry on the clerical work neces sary to make the rooms worth while would necessitate approximated S2,7(M per year. Possibly it could be "done for a few hundred dollars less, provided co operative arrangements could be made with the Farm Bureau and the IJ(d Cross.- It is undeniably true that the continu ance of the organization on a successful basis demands the employment of some paid leadership. The time has passed when members feel able to give so freely of their time as was done in past years. It is jKissible that in its present inactive state the organization is not in a position to give the necessary support and co-operation of a trained executive, particularly one who was not familiar with local con ditions and would have to depend in a large measure on the assistance of the president and board of directors during the first year of his iiicumbencv. Consc" quently. if it is jiossible to obtain some paid leadership on a pait time basis this might be resorted to for part of the first year with a view to the subsequent em ployment of a full-time executive who would make the organization the sort of a machine which would be of most value to the town and would most efficient lv utilize the surmort triven ir If it decided merely to maintain the present rooms and suitable clerical help. approximately $2,700 a year would be needed. These figures are based cn a budget of estimated expenses containing the following items: ESTIMATED EXPENSES. Item. Amount. Rent $ ,r(M) Rest Room 240 Telephone and telegraph KM) Postage and printing 2.0 Advertising 1(H) Flower bed and civic improve ments 100 Entertainment and miscellaneous "1(H) Stenographic !K)0 members into close touch with the prob lems of the organization. In conclusion, we feel like expressing I our conviction that no organization can I function properly without a head and the 'sooner one is chosen for the Brattleboro Chamber, of Commerce, whether he be called president, manager or executive secretary, the quicker it will commence tj prosper. SMITH GIRLS MEET TESTS. ST. TAI L'S SCHOOL DAMAGED. Total f-2fi'M) Considering that there is a present in come of about $1,(500 from dues, this would necessitate the raising of approxi mately $1,100 additional-income. If a part time secretary is to be em ployed, the income needed annually would be approximately $M,!MJO. since it is doubt ful if a secretary of the proper sort could be secured for part time work for less than $1,200 a year. This would necessi tate raising $2,3lt0 in addition to the present income from dues. If the organization is to employ a full time paid secretary, however, the budget must carry a salary allowance of at least $,'i.(HK) in order to obtain the type of man winch our recent hearings showed would be required to meet the approval of the members. It has been conceded that unless we employ a well-trained secretary some- j what above the average, we may as well get along without a secretary or with only a part-time man. With this type of man additional funds would be necessary for travel and incidental expenses. This would necessitate raising about $.".400 in addi tion to the present income from dues. I The committee believes that a concensus of opinion of the majority of the members warrants the following recommendations .to the board of directors: I 1. That they maintain the present rooms and adequate clerical help. j 2. That they should employ a part-time secretary, commencing immediately. j .". That a full-time secretary be em ployed as soon as the organization is in condition to support and properly co derate with such an official. ( In this par- Iticular recommendation four of the com mittee concur and one dissents.) We suggest that the directors, assisted by a part-time secretary, institute a once an active campaign for additional members. In the opinion of the committee it ought to lie jKissible to secure and re tain a membership of between iM and noo.r , We suggest that a canvass be made im mediately for a sustaining fund of suffi cient size to meet the financial require ments of the organization until such time as dues from increased membership shall have made the organization self-supiort-ing. The committee teels certain from opinions expressed in the recent hearings that no difficulty would be experienced in raising such a fund. We recommend that meetings of the entire members Im- held at least once a month, except through the summer, to discuss problems of common interest to the members and to the community, with the object of promoting a stronger feeling of personal responsibility bv bringing the Fire Caused by.
