Mi)llum of Johns Hop kins universitv says that if Americans would each drink a quart of milk a day, and eat proportionately less meat, they would live to a riper old age. and would be healthier and have better eyesight right along. lie has proved it by rats, which for ilietnrv numoses are said to be much like human beings. For !." years Prof McCollunThas been experimenting with his charming little nets, feeding them va riously, after the manner of human be ings. ns far as the fiftieth generation i When a rat is not fed properly, it suffers from malnutrition just like a child, with 'rickets and other familiar symptoms When it gets the proper amount of butter '. fats and other requirements for an am 'ule and balanced ration, it thrives. So do children, and so, the professor insists, will men and women if they will pay as much attention to their diet as intelli gent people now pay to the feeding of children. So what the country needs is not more beef steers but more milch cows, not more herds but more dairies. And with them, or as a condition precedent to them, it needs a public more appreciative of the virtues of milk. The ordinary adult, male or female, really has little ap preciation either of the dietary value of good milk or of its cheapness compared with other foods containing the same amount of nourishment. It is especially desirable in the summer time, when it combines the virtues of a non-heating food with seasonal plenty and cheapness. WOMEN NEED JOBS, TOO. Whenever a shortage of work appears, somebody raises the howl to let the wom en go and give the jobs to the men who need them. Income tax returns indicate that the need is not all on the male side. When the tax returns for the state of New York were made up for 1010, it was found that 107,003 single women had reported as self-supporting, and 20. 011 single women answered as heads of families with others dependent upon them for support.' In addition to these single wage earners there were several thousand married women with depend ents. These arc the figures for but one state. These women are not working for fun or for a little pin money. They are work ing because, in their cases, the old fond notion that man is the wage earner lias proved an economic fallacy. The industrial problem cannot be solved by stealing from these women the jobs they need. Instead, there must be such a revival of business as will make jobs for everybody. The sooner the al tered economic situation is recognized and people resume work on the best basis they can arange, the sooner this will hap pen. One job does not shut out another, but creates more jobs through its demand for working materials and the purchas ing power which its wage confers. THE FARMERS' EXAMPLE. The winter wheat crop will -not be of remarkable size this year, but it will be vastly important, none the less. It is to be marketed promptly and the money from its sale used by the farmers to take up their over-due notes at the bank, thus starting a revival of prosperity. There are plenty of freight cars to move the crop swiftly. The elevators are waiting to hold the grain. The farm er is listening to no more tales of high finance to persuade him to hold his pro duce for profiteering prices, nor to any whispers of the agitators for weird un- scientific combinations against the cap italists" Instead, the farmers are aeknowleilg iut- v ceiveti rrom cows. banks which have faithfully! Another statement ma eir notes during the past few'ence in Uoston that may ins that the extended the months are their best friends. In turn, they will prove themselves trieudiy, paj : their debts, and go about their business in a sensible manner, cured of the desire for outside cures which take .no account of the basic trouble. Isn't there soniei ihinp- here which other lines ot business I" c- could well emulate? The Uarre board of trade has raised; nlioiit S.'i.OOO for hiring a full-time sec- retary, despite the business depression in the granite muusirj. vim-i ,nii.. trade organizations will watch the P.arre effort in the hope it will blaze the way to;Xcept those which hav n,.tivitv thronchout the state. Parre is said to be facing the competition of cheaper granite and lower wages in the West and must either lower the cost of its product or convince the outside public that its granite is worth more than the western stone. The re-election of Samuel Gompers, president of the American federation of labor, by a vote of 25.022 to 12.324 for John L. Lewis, head of the I'nited Mine Workers of America, is a decisive vic tory for the conservative forces of organ ized labor. Lewis openly declared for government ownership of the railroads and other Socialistic schemes and was so effectively turned down that labor radi- cals can no longer hope to control mis powerful national organization. Hiking by means of free rides with au tomobilists is likely to suffer a period of depression in Vermont. The other day three men stopped a motorist on the high way between Morrisville and Johnson and asked for a ride. After they got aboard the car they drew a pistol and forced the owner to get out and drove away with the machine. These robbers have discredited the whole hiking' fra ternity and many a deserving walker will now be passed by cautious automo bile drivers. Fber Huntley Palmer of Duxbury graduated from the Waterbury high school last week with the record of eleven years of school attendance without a tardy or absent mark. This record for approximately 2.014 school days probably cannot be matched in Vermont, possibly not in New England. Three American steamships, a schoon er and two foreign freighters are mys teriously missing in the Atlantic. As a speedy solution of the mystery is desired, it is hoped that congress will not under take another investigation. President Harding has declined to ac cept invitations to speak for the next six weeks. If everybody else would fol low his example, most of the troubles of this country would soon evaporate. One of the fine things about this dull period is that business men who for years have been selling goods to customers with the air of doing them a favor are learn ing the art of salesmanship again. Representative Paul Johnson of Mis sissippi has introduced a bill to forbid women's snufking in Washington. And yet there are times when congress itself needs a smoke screen. The IJovine Tuberculin Test. ... (Barre Times.) One statement made at a bovine tuber culosis eradication hearing in theissa chusetts state house recently may be of interest, if not of help to Vermont, in which state there is at the present time more or less discussion regarding the de sirability of spending quarter of a million dollars annually in the eradication of bo vine tuberculosis. This statement, as made by Dr. John F. Devine of Goshen, N. Y., is as follows : "We can never eradicate tuberculosis in the human family while we nourish it iu the bovine." This is a very positive statement but is, we believe, based upon medical opin ion that is of the highest sort. Of course, tlnere are medical men who believe to the contrary, that bovine tuberculosis is not communicated to human being3 ; but there are others xrtxo have given the matter much study who are very positive that much of the tuberculosis in the human family is attributable to the infection re ceived from cows, ie at tue comer be of interest to Vermont is that bovine tubcreuloMs can be eradicated, and that statement was SUpioniont,Ml bv still am-ther and by an other authority who declared that during the past hve years tuberculosis has been reduced 0 nor cent and that today a large number of purebred herds in the I'nited States are free of the disease. We know trom statistics that tunercuiosis is being eradicated in Vermont under the campaign that is now in operation That campaign cost niinscy; but it i- money well spent if th gains already are developed. t mailo fi r iiih i ntn i nid nn Vermont is, we believe, on the right track and ought to continue the work as fast as possible, the work to !c followed up by a strict quarantine against any cattle Iteen subjected nnd have been to the tubreculin test 1 J i, c t tt... ..... .

My stomach was in such awful condition I couldn't digest beans or other vegetables. Finally my nerves gave way and I got so little rest at night I could hardly drag myself around the house. As I had failed so often to get relief I was discouraged and melancholy. 'Tanlac did for me what all the other medicines I had tried failed to do.
