2 High Cost of Living Coming Down One of tbe .most prominent commodi ties in the high cost of living, that is lower in pric(, is that of food, which is a blessing to the majority of people, as they will soon be able to afford better meals, but wbat god is a fine meal if yon suffer from indigestion and stomach troubles. You can easily be relieved of these disorders and keep your stomach and digestive organs healthy by taking SEVEN BARKS, nature's remedy of roots and herbs. The stomach is where digestion begins, but the most important work is done by the bowels, liver and kidneys failure of these to act efficiently allows the whole body to be poisoned and if neglected will lead to serious trouble. But if you will take from 10 to 20 drops of SEVEN BARKS in a little water after meals, you can eat and enjoy your favorite food with-feach out fear of serious results. Stomach disorders if neglected lead to kidney and bladder troubles, if you are compelled to arise from your slumber once or twice during the night, have dark rings around the eyes, feet or legs swell, palpitation of the heart, it proves your kidneys are affected. SEVEN BARKS will relieve you and keep you well. Ask your druggist for it. Price CO cents. Adv.

MEMORIAL HAY PLANS A Memorial dav which shall be such a day in fact, and not in name only, is sought by members of some of the great soldier organizations. They would have amusements minimized, or banished en tirely, and tbe day devoted to such exer cises and meetings as would keep it holy in the eyes of all Americans and serve to stimulate patriotism. The movemfiit was launched by pome of the American Legion men and Span ish war veterans. There is little doubt that it will be taken up by similar bodies alt over the country. It is noteworthy and phasing that the idea was sponsored by the younger generations of service men rather than, as might have been ex pected, by the Civil war veterans, in honor of whose comrades the day was set aside originally. There is a growing tendency upon the part of the public ty relegate the spe cial services in honor of Memorial day to the soldier organizations, their fem inine auxiliaries and the school children. Th rest of the community goes right on with its business or takes the day for. inaKing. 'iiiis is not good for the people themselves nor fair to the men who have died in the service of their country. Xeithar is it in keeping with the true purpose ot the day. Xow that the movement has been started to keep the day sacred, cannot Memorial day plans, both public and private, fall in with it? Such observ ance is both just and fitting. It holds promise not only of a nation united in ionoring its soldier dead, but united anew in the determination to keep faith with them in the preservation of free dom. ROY FORLSTERS. Articles in the Literary Digest and Popular Mechanics tell how the boys of Louisiana are being enlisted in the cam paign lor reforesting their state. It is believed that by the end of the year over 2.".000 boys will have enrolled for the project. Reforestation clubs .are being formed all over the state aud a wisely directed system of prizes will help to stir boyish enthusiasm. . " It is estimated that an ordinarily healthy boy can plant and care for five acres of forest and still have plenty of time for his other duties and for play. The interest of the boys will be led from the care and replanting of the home wood lot aud furnishing of timber for local demands to the restoration of Louisiana's forests generally. Advice and instruc tion will be furnished the boys by agents of the Forestry Rureau, but the actual planting and care must be their own work. Prizes will be given on proper spacing of trees, thrifty and vigorous growth and freedom from injury. Re planting of barren areas and proper for est ration of wooded areas will be in cluded in the instruction. The boys are seizing the idea eagerly. It is hard to think of a more healthful, wholesome and promising Snterest for any boy, in Louisiana or any other state Life insurance companies compile sta tistics which tell how long a man may be expected to live under certain condi tions. A Xew York surety company has statistics which tell where to look for honesty. The profane man and the fat man are both classed as good risks. Pro fane men give vent to their "cussedness" by "cussing" and rarely appropriate to their own use otberjjjeople's money. Fat men are generally good feeders and are p - 1- ....-.-. .-... - ..- 'i . .... 1 13 too satisfied with the world in general to inflict harm on their fellowmen. Mar ried men have been found to be more honest than bachelors by a ratio of six to one and women are found to be far more honest than men. The best riak of all is the man who saves.

"Where do all the pins go?" is a ques tion often asked but never satisfactorily answered. A girl worker in a Spring field, Mass., laundry, however, has found out where some of the safety pins go. Xot long ago she started saving safety pins from the soiled garments brought to the laundry with the result that in a month hhe had 2,7M pins. If these pins were clasped together, each measuring an inch and a half, they would form a string o37 feet long. The Missouri public service commis- sion has ruled that a telephone sub-' scriber, under his contract with the com-' pany, has a right to use abusive Ian - guage to an operator "at least .n.t 'when poor service has roiled bis temper.

Will Dempsey be willing do it?" to "let George (Jreene Gets a Scalp. (St. Albans Messenger.) In successfully opposing an increase in the appropriation for vocational edu cation in the army. Congressman Frank L. Greene seemingly hung a scalp to his belt. The Fort Mills (S. C.) Times thus comments on the event : ' Congressman McSwain of South Car olina must have felt about as important as a plugged penny when the Republi can house Monday cot throueh with the amendment lie proposed to the army ap propriation bill providing for a big in crease for vocational training. Congress man ureene of Vermont bowled over Mc Swain and his amendment with the state ment that 'the army is organized v for righting, not for going to school.' Mc Swain's amendment proposed a waste of public funds and the Republicans very properly rejected it." Daylight Saving. (Bennington Eanner.) The argument over daylight saving continues and the Randolph Herald and Xews expects to see it an issue in the next presidential compaign. Probably tbe ar gument isn't quite no serious as some, but it has developed one unusual slant. Day light saving is favored in cities and large towns and is opposed in the country. Wh en in effect it compels people to get up earlier in the morning and. naturally, to go to bed earlier at night. It is the city people who have always had the reputa tion of sitting un late nichts and lavinir abed in the morning, while country peo ple are born and bred to early rising. Logically, one would expect that it would be the town folks who would onnose day light saving and that country folks would iavor it. Welcome Home (Burlington Free Press.) The return 'of Kditor Pharlea V. PrAtis of the Middlebury liegister from his va cation in Florida in fully restored health will be welcome news to the craft throughout Vermont. He says in his edi torial columns that he returns with "a renewed appreciation of the green hills lrrtle ,fihj .VirlJirtt.:L. He says, that I .... To and Fro ' ' ' with "all due respect to Floral Florida it lacks, at any season of the year that lavish affection which nature bestows on spring."

And What Are "Succors?" (Rutland Xews.) A native of the South who reads The Rutland Xews rises to remark that if he should return home nnd tell about the .'." tons of succors removed from Chittenden pond and thrown away the residents of his native town would either regard him as insane or believe him to be a super liar. It appears that in the far South MlTfivtrs nr.. rrvnr1iiil ?w u fti;,!, ltl.,.

Miss Ann P.atchelder, prominent Ver mont suffragist during the final offensive that overthrew the opposition to votes for women, has left ""the state and accepted an editorial position on the Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Daily Star.

Rage will hardly encourage him to consider becoming a candiate for re- election to the federal senate next year It seems very likely that Hon. Frank L. Greene, who has abundantly qualified for service in the upper hou?e, will be urged to accept promotion. Muke the Punishment Fit the Crime. (St. Albans Messenger.) A Montpelier horse thief has just been given a prison sentence of four years. The auto thief, wherever he inav be. ought not to get off any easier. Good prison sentences for those who steal motor cars are necessary if this form of crime is to be kept within reasonable grounds. There are women in Xew York, it is said, who, make a living pawning arti eles for other people. And He Did !
