The remark of the New York Evening Post that it is not the custom to heed a serious social emergency until the cry of the hungry is actually heard" is founded on sad truth. The fact that the conference on unem ployment has been called for the early ; I'.-in. in the hope that the trouble ' " mitigated before cold weather with its hunger and general distress sets in. is a hopeful thing, in spite of the pessimists. There is no doubt that good can come from it, if the issue is fared with frankness and the remedies for are adopted with courage and pe. tnce. Meanwhile, unemployment can give place to employment in unnumbered cases if every citizen with a piece of work to do, however small, and money enough to pay for it, will hire that small job done. This is the time to add on the porch to put up the garage, to get a man to cut and burn the weeds on the vac.nt lot. It is the time to have t'"' fr. ve and chimnev cleaned, the loose on the roof replaced, the spouting In-ked after, the painting and papering done. In many a small business there is work enough to keep busy for a month or six weeks, perhaps. The manufacturer who is delaying because he can see bu little work ahead, and thinks it not w-th while to open, lest he may soon have to close again, is making a mistake. Every man employed for six weeks means one family fed and cared for during that length of time and longer. It means that much more buying power in the town, that much less work for the charities next winter. It means less crime and less disturbance generally. Charity is always a patch. Employment is whole cloth. BROOKS HOUSE G E. Sherman Manager When We. Call for Your Baggage ask for claim check which saves yon from losing your baggage LOUIS I.

Swat the Weeds! (Keene Sentinel.) Why docities and towns which hare arisen and swatted the fly until that omni-present iesf is actually reduced in numbers still submit tamely to the weed nuisance, when it is so much eas ier to get rid of weeds? In spite of campaigns for civic beauty, gardening and general improve ment, there is hardly a town to be found ithout weeds here and there, growing rank alonr the sidewalks, flourishing in the vacant lots and carrying on their ceaseless propaganda to nullify the ef forts of every citizen who plants or improves. Aside from their unsightly appear ance, unchecked weed growths, drying in the late summer weather, constitute a tire menace of no small degree. They provide unlimited garage space which all sorts of insect pests find handy for laying up their c.irs for the winter. They contribute to the ill-health and discomfort of the community, holding germ laden dust for the first breeze to carry along. They stimulate, and prob ably cause directly, hay fever and al lied ills. A steady campaign, right now for cutting down all weeds and burning them, so that neither, seed nor insert mischief-makers are left to spread trouble, will both solve this year's prob lem and diminish next year's labors. The weed and the insect know nothing of race suicide, and without some out ward check their tribes increase with a rapidity worthy of a liner strain. Today V Events gentleman to cottage.

The scandal in which the film comed ian., Roscoe Arbuckle, is involved, has given rise in many quarters to a demand for the suppression of all pictures featur ing him u..'H the extent of his guilt has been determined by the courts. The idea has a good deal to recommend it, and it is a pity that a similar withdrawal of publicity cannot be "-tnded to all the detnils cf the tragedy ia which be is a central figure. No good can come from pui.iish'ng far r.iA wide the details of any brawl of this type. Tf Arbuckle is free from blame, that fact can be ascertained and announced in due time by the proper authorities, siod he can go his way to delight or bore movie audiences according to their tate. If he is found culpable, the brand-of pub lic disfavor should be put upon him ami his works.

Basing the estimate on new names added by the compilers of the town di rectory, some Bratileltoro jn'orde believe j that their town's population is now ap proximately M.uim: i.s, to be exact ii contrast to the ollicial figures of 8,-""!-, as secured by the I". S. census enumerators less than two years ago. Such an increase in population in so short ii time and under such slack limes in business would le most re markable indeed; and there is consid erable doubt outside of Brattleboro and by more conservative estimators in Brattleboro that the town has made an advance of such proportions. It is pos-. sible that Brattleboro has been gaining in population during the last two years,. out we have found that figures com piled by makers of the directory are a rai her unreliable basis on which to ii -like an estimate. If we were to rely on the figures of new names added to tli! Barre directory, less the names di opped. we should have to conclude that Barre has made substantial gains in population since the l'.)20 census; but we do not beliee that P.arre has made si. eh gains as the net increase in names ir the directory would seem to indicate. Whether the system of taking names f r the Bratlleboro directory is more oact than it is in Barre is a matter of doubt. We understand that the direct ories were compiled by the same firm and. presumably, under the same system of gathering names and compiling figures. However, we sincerely hope that Brat tlboro has been making extensive grins in population even though the in crrase there might jeopardize Barre 's pi.sition as third in the state as to pop ulation, or threaten to displace Ben nington as fourth. , Fouling the Springs.

(Bennington Banner.) The New England crop report says that the Vermont potato cj-op is short this year by HoO.OOO bushels. If we believed gov ernment statistics we might be worried, but. as a rule, estimates that come from official departments are a little worse than guesses made at home. Some of the state papers are discussing the census report that 3 per cent of the adult population of Vermont is illiterate. It may be an inter esting topic but the point The Banner desires to make is that there is no good reason for believing the report. Aside from the defectives and mentally unbal anced, confined in state and local institu tions, it is extremely unlikely that even 1 per eent of the native :i(i:i!( p'.jwl.'ition of Vermont is illiterate. Of the foreign brn the percentage is a 'litth- higher, bui the statement printed that over IT. p"i- cent of the adult foreign Imrn people of Rut land county are unable to read and write seems to The Banner to be absolutely ab surd. Any such statement in regard to the foreign born in Bennington county would be ridiculous. The census of 1!2(! was badly taken. It came in the midst of the period of inflation. The remunera tion fixed by the government for the enu merators was so low that it did not en courage painstaking effort. If the census takers stopped to be exact they didn't make enough to pay expenses, especially when covering certain districts. As a re sult some of them were careless and used Must Be a Diplomat.
