Germany had designed . an airship with sufficient power to carry - ions oi utoiuu: materials and intended to use this craft to destrov New York, testified livig.-Uen. William Mitchell before the house uuval affair .-committee, yesterday.. This ship was the L-72 and was completed ami readv to make the trip when the armistice was signed. It was taken over as a trophy bv Franee. "I believe it could have attacked New York citv with success," said General Mitchell." "It was designed to tly at a height, of T.O.ooO feet, thus making it vir tually immune fiom attacks by airplanes on its trip here. "It was equipped with electrical de vices that kept its engines warm at the high altitude. Its crew was protected with electrically heated clothes and sup plied with oxygen from tanks. The big ship was built to carry 2o tons of explo sives." General Mitchell said that the army is now designing similar ships capable of thir.g at the ;',0.0OO feet altitude. upon the streets than sitting quietly in movine picture house listening to good music? 'Would you rather have your VOUH2 daughter put in the afternoon pa radiue up and down i'hurch street to ex cite the remarks of sidewalk loafers or would voii prefer having her going with her eirl chums to the movies? Is it right to play golf on Sunday or go motoring or walking and wrong to witness movinir pictures.' The question at present is one which is receiving much attention all over the countrv and as such deserves considera tion. Proponents of blue laws or similar Sunday legislation will of course be op posed to any such idea as Sunday movies, but 'on the other hand there are large numbers of people who are opitosed to I?lue Law Sundays. And there the matter stands. It is a question and undoubtedly iteontrovertable, hccau.se ot which it is worthy of thought WIRES IN RE LEAST Cl'TV Attempt Made to Prevent Circulation of Sir Edward Carson's Speech. 1SHLFAST. Ireland. Feb. .". Attempt to isolate P.elfast from the rest of Ire land was made last night, telegraph and telephone wires being cut in every Kree I ion. It was believed that the object of the attempt was to prevent the cir- dil.iion throughout Ireland of the ad l.. ss niiide by Sir Edward Carson at the l ister Unionist council meeting here. 'I he address, however, had already been telegraphed. Communication between V.eHnst Dublin and Londonderry was affected. .MYSTERIES OF REVELATIONS. Vermont.

P.rownell will preach the first sermon in a series on The Mysteries of the Rook of Revelations. The series, numbering seven sermons, will be conducted on succeeding Sunday venings. The topics of the entire series are as follows: The Seven Candlesticks, The Seven Seals. The Seven Trumpets. The Woman and the Reast. The Seven P.owls. The Great Judgment, and The New Jerusalem. Puts Vermont On An - Equal. (St. Albans Messenger.) .. . It is difficult to understand why the bill creating a commission on foreign v and domestic commerce should have eneoun tered any opposition in the house at Montr.elier. It probably wouldn't hav had the word "commission" not been at tadied to it. There are some men who have an unreasoned hatred of that word. This bill does not carry an appropria tion with it. Its puriose is to give commission which already exists a 1 ual status, the same as similar coninns sions from the other New England state have, so that Vermont, in the important conferences dealing with the common in terests of .New r.ngland. will le on an equality with the other states. It is gratifying to those who look for a co-ordinate - development of ermontj that the vote resulted as it did for it shows that the members from the agricul tural towns, or a goodly number of them, are anxious to work in the harness with the industrial representatives. The fait is. it is only by this kind of team work that Vermont can go for ward. The in ban representative must be willing to give his assistance to all proper measures benefiting agriculture while the rural member must be willing to give support to proper measures which aim to build up our industrial centers. Not only this but Vermont must work with the other New England states in order to safeguard and protect her own interests. It was a son of Vermont, Cal vin Coolidce, who emphasized, as gov ernor of Massachusetts, the necessity of New England team work and who caused these state commissions to be apiKiinted. Vermont would have taken a backw ard step had this commission lill 1 1; not received the approval of the house, and it will take a backward step if the senate does not concur in the house action. The Cliangin (St. Albans Messenger.) During the past few years there has been more or less discussion, in the state press and in private conversation among individuals and groups of the changing complexion of farm life in Vermont. It has been lamented that the old Vermont type is disappearing from our count ry- wde and that foreigners are tiling the vacancies so far as they are being filled at all. The federal census statistics on agri culture in Vermont present an oppor tunity to test the theories that have been advanced durinz the past decade. These figures ' substantiate the contention ot those who hare claimed that-the Ver monter is disappearing and that his place is being taken by the alien. In the first place the number of farms has decreased in the past 10 years by .i..4. J hat m itself is significant. Now. the w is one calss of people who above all others are coming in to the state. They are near-by foreigners ; they are Canadians from the province of Ouebec. lhe counties alons the northern tier have long been aware of this Canadian invasion for they , have een some of the very ' best farm lands in the entire- state bought atid occupied by these newcomers who have shown an exceptionable industry and thritt m quickly discharging the financial obliga tions incident to the purchase of our farms. Perhaps the people down state have not realized what this invasion has meant because the Canadian has not penetrated that tar although his prog ress is yearly further south of the bound ary line, lhey have only to study th census figures to come to a full realiza tion of the extent of the displacement of the old Vermont families from the farm which often had been in the family ios session for genrations While the number of farms in the en tire state has decreased from J12.700 in P.tlO to 20,.07." in RVJO, the number of Canadian farm owners here has increased from 2,4iY. to To express this in percentage of the ratio of Canadian- owned farms to the total number of farms in the state one would say that of the total Canadians owned seven plus per cent in 1!I10 aud nine plus in !'.(. While the number of native-born on the farms have shown a loss and while the number of farms has decreased, the Can adians have shown a considerable in- J crease. i The only other foreigners to show an increase are the Swedes but their num ber is small. In fact, while the Canadi ans owned nine per cent plus of the to tal farms all other foreigners are cred ited w-ith only three per cent plus. Other foreign farmers except the Canadian and the Swede have shown not only relative but actual losses, the most marked being among the Irish born, of whom there were not half as manv in 11 CO as in 1010. Anyone who is interested in this would do well to look at the figures of farm wncrship in GrsrfKr-Tsle, Franklin. Or leans and Essex counties, keeping in mind the truth that foreign owners in these counties are almost without excep tion Canadians, and Canadians- from Quebec who have come into the state in ecent years. Then they win realize what, from the stamlioint of statistics, is coins on. Rut the standpoints other than statis tics are the imjxirtaut ones, lhis inva sion cannot help but bring a change in manners and customs. it involves a change in the environment, in the very atmosphere. Without trying to draw any moral, here is a condition that hculd be seriouslv pondered over. It is evident if the invasion continues we shall, with the passing of a few decades, have a new Vermont. Rut will it be the kind of New Vermont so many of us have been looking forward to tor so many years .'

WIDOW OF PARNELL IS DEAD. Death Claims Romantic and IV.C.ctlc Figure of Gladstone Era. LONDON, Feb. (. Mrs. Charles Stewart Parnell, widow of the great Irish Nationalist, leader, died today at her home in Brighton after a lingering ill ness. The Evening Standard says of her career: "One of the most romantic ami pathetic figures of the Gladstone era passed, away in the person of Mrs. Parnell." Absurd Old English Law. Under the English common law no one bua a right to bathe lo the sea. This was decided by the courts a hun dred years ago, and an attack on tb decision at the beginning of this cen tury failed to upset It, the higher court deciding that Id the strict legal sense one could fish In the sea but could not bathe In It. Mabel Normand cured her own blues in "What Hap pened to Rosa." Let her cure yours. She fell down a coal hole and came up a bride.

Small Towns. (P.ellows Falls Time...) Some are expressing reiret because the Vermont house of representatives voted Sir.0,000 of state aid for the so-called back or town roads. To this paper it eoiis more a matter of congratulation than regret. It will be a sorry day fir the state when rural cimont is left to decav. Good roads are needed in the country, in fact they are necessary for rural growth. The small towns cannot maintain these roads, the financial bur den is too great. The state should aid and aid liberally. Never heard of seconds at Wellman's did you? There ain't no such animal. H.P.WeUman Co., Inc.
