As the high-priced raw material is used up, the manufacturer can now buy in a better market and the cost of his product is correspond ingly less. Hence the retail price must be less, not for a week or two, but per manently, or until something happens to increase the cost of the raw material. The above applies to washing machines, too.

On the other hand, roads have their 'hare in the winning of wars. It was the difficulty of transporting war sup plies which finally awoke this country to its great need for good roads. In the years from 101."j to 1019, war years it is estimated that an average tonnage for 11 basic farm products hauled on country roads was '27 tons of crops for every 100 acres of land. The products included the grains, com. cot ton, tobacco, potatoes, rice, lla. -' ,i and cultivated hay. The .total average ton nage per year for the time given was S."i, rifUMMM) tons.

The past two years probably would show a decrease of the average, but as soon as business resumes its normal j v portions the figures will begin to rise, and keep right on rising as fast as prosperity increases and world markets open.

A distracted mother wrote to the edi tor of the Kansas City Star to ask what she could do to stop her 12-year-old son from "reading everything he can lay his hand on."

"There's a bit of bread and butter go ing away" is the gist of a remark credited to a Bellows Falls citizen by The Times of that place as he gazed at the logs of the Champlain Realty Co. going down the stream and away from the plant ot the born to be argued away. The logs are gone. The work they represent will never be performed in Bellows Falls, obviously labor has been buncombed by those it trusted. It is a pity, but it is a truth that cannot be gainsaid. And so too often is lalxir penalized by itself in all parts of the country through blind lead ership, often of the absentee type. It is a very tangible lesson down at Bellows Falls, one which ought never to be forgot ten there and which might well bp studied with profit elsewhere. The experiment has gone through the laboratory. It is possible to reach conclusions from the actions and reactions. The conclusion is that labor needs more than anything else umler the sun to test the quality of its leadership and to insist that it entrusts its case, its future, only to men of sound sense and good judgment. Charles II. Davenport. (Randolph Herald.) The death is announced in Ithaca, N. Y., of Charles 11. Davenport, for many years editor and proprietor of the Brattle boro Reformer. The more active period of his life wa spent at this work and he is properly regarded as a Vermonter, to brush the tops of passing vehicles, are a menace to those who travel in motor cars, the prevailing mode of travel. Our Bristol contemporary, the Herald, says : "Wonder if Governor Hartness. as one of the state's road-building department heads, miring his travels about the state ever notices that there is an over-abundance of bushes along thex roads and that in many sections it would appear as though the town authorities were making an attempt to cultivate such growth of shrubliery on the curves."
