Or the Pains and Penalties of Catching Small Pike. Once upon a time there was a Creature in the form and general semblance of Man. and It answered to the call. "Hey. Rill!" and all was and remained well, until the coming of a certain season 'when It be came possessed of a great unrest and had a geueral mental upheaval, and after suf fering therefrom for a time It violently possesed itself of divers and sundry tackle and gear and hiked forth to a place where many waters mingled. Arriving there It proceeded to perform certain la- I bors and rites, the same being accom plished only after great exertion and with much expectation. After small living I organisms had been attached to appro priate parts of said tackle and gear they were dropped through apertures pre viously made in the congealed portion of the overflow, and there followed a period of much mental anguish, hope and des pair, alternating in rapid succession as the mechanical aids of this stranie Creat ure became at times spasmodically opera tive by reason of contact with some Thing hidden within the underlying wetness. Occasionally It hauled from their nat ural element some violently Hopping, slimy, queer looking Things which It pounced upon with whoops of joy and seemed to prize very highly, thereafter de voting all of Its snare time to their cap ture, and lugging Them to Its home at the close of day in a state of delirious joy. Arriving there It proceeded to perform certain bloody rites, followed by subject ing the remaining portions of Its Captives t a fiery ordeal, and then devouring them with great gusto. For a time all would be serene as the f'rgy proceeded, but it is a sad fact that every rose has its thorn, and everv little . : 1. . : . . ) 1 : . 1 . 1 11 ihm1 iv.s iimiiiMi ihiu-s, i-uiistiiut-uii.v nitre ! :...t . ... were iiciiucui pernios 01 vioit-ui Hgiiauon i I .... e n i i .. .1.. fromBlts lnin face aporture of a spiney mass Much anguish maketh th mind active i 1: 7. n . .. t. aiuiii,1 liin-s iriiuniK lu lis uut-t Klliuii, su u finally, after much cerebral activity, de , vised a contrivance similar in outward ap pearance to the festive gas mask, the same to he strapped on over Its food entrance.

Jan. lS.-Acoonlin to the lepoit of the state department of ag multure, it is estimated that the annual value of Vermont's farm products exceeds 80,000,000. This amount is considerably greater than the total gold production ot 1919 in the United States which was val ued at $o8,2Sj,1)G. 1 he census figures recently issued show that in 1919 Vermont's dairy products, not iiH hiding home use of milk and cream, amounted to 27,182,934. It is probable that figures for 1920 aie even larger. The census figures indicate that Vermont pro duced eggs in 1919 which were worth 82.- 738,343, and chickeus valued at $1,300,150. According to the United States Crop Re porter, Vermont's maple products in 1920 were worth 4,149,050.

Editor of The Reformer: As the Montnelier session is at and hand and I see the dog ouestion is in circula tion,- I wish to soeak a word for one of our helping fiiends, the dog. How many readers realize the value of a good farm dog, for getting the cows? They can't throw stones like the hired man and put what is called a spider in the teat, to be "orrned by the next time the cow freshens, which spoils so many valuable cows. Do they stop to think of the many steps ?aved ? Now if it were not for dogs what would t cost the farmer to keep his mowing nja chine in repair after cutting through woodchucks' holes and losing from one to three hours to replace new sections by the woodchuek nuisance? My ' dog averages around 50 woodchucks a year, then when the skunk season comes my. Jboys get about 3.1 and when trapping is over and when "ov coinos w get five foxes or so through the winter by going out a few nice days, which is great sport. As a guard to home and 'property what would it cost to hire a person day and night to be as watchful as a good dog? t v-ill tell you tight now, you will not find many hoboes necking in your windows watching for a chance to trim you when -ou are asleep with a good dog of any breed. Txt "s provide higher penalties so no one will violate the law. as it is the ;mall crime that leads to higher ones, and Vwyors making wealth ' out' of our laws diould be abolished. If this state is to be 1 game t.resrve. turn it over to the law yers, kill off the dogs and make still rea'r slaves of the farmers and their "amilies and then wonder . win- the - far- Tiers produce costs so much at retail. sinTily because the farmer is so burdened wil st'idyinor Jaw or fear of law that he will not take the time to - wholesale "not -"oduce and von can settle with the mid dle man or fhe lawyer.
