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.
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.

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
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.

Brat 1 1 e borw's Popula t ion .

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

Government Statistics Sometimes Wrong.
(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

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

make enough to pay expenses, especially
