STl'DENTS The Rhodes scholarship contest in 32 states this year have brought out the largest number of applicants ami the keenest interest and competition in the history of this unitpie institution. Every men's college in America, it seems, has students eager to go to 'Oxford. This competition insures that men of good quality will be sent men who repre sent the best there is in American college life and who therefore are good repre- sentatives of the American people. It is interesting, though, for the new attitude it shows toward foreign education. I'.efore the war. American students usually preferred to go to German uni versities. Now there is little inclina- tion to restore the old traffic between American and German institutions of learning. The English and French uni versities have the call, with the empha- sis on the J.ngnsti. ,ircunisiances 01 which Cecil Rhodes never dreamed when he made his princely bequest have co- operated in helping along the purpose for which he founded the scholarships bringing together the educated men of the English-speaking nations. SILVER DOLLARS Silver dollars have been scarce cat of the Mississippi for two decades. During the war they dissappcarcd even in the West. Lately they have' been coining back again. Treasury department re ports tell why. For months past the Philadelphia mint has been operating on a 24-hour basis turning out ."MMMHX) standard silver dol lars a da v. The Denver, and San Fran- cisco mints, likewise, have been working at top speed. They have, in fact, ox- haustcd the supply of silver bullion in these last weeks. ore.gn orders are taking the place of domestic ones. The Philadelphia mint T, , , '. . , . . rrancisco has a big order from Indo- China. It is profitable work, whereas minting money for America circulation is not always so. In October our mints turned out 2.'V 41..(00 silver dollars. Now they stop, to work for other nations, when there aren't nearly enough to go around New York state at the last election adopted an amendment to its constitu tion establishing a literacy test for voters. It will not affect those who already have exercised the voter's privilege, but every new voter will be compelled to qualify. Massachusetts already requires such a test. It is a provision which might well be adopted by other states. It is tine that many a man who can read is a bad .ii.Tii, aim man. a mnn nun ruuuoi read the required number of words mav be a good citizen ; but the general aver age of citizenship would certainly be raised by better education. Anything which sets tho voting qualifications a litt'e higher works for the good of the community. u-i,- ,.,, .: , ,, i . .

There's an old saying: '"Its a poor rule that won't work lioth ways." This rule seems to have worked perfectly going up but has got stuck coming down.

The question of opinion ns to the harmful effect of tobacco does not enter into the decision of the hish school ath letic council to prohibit indulgence in the weed by candidates during the training season; it i merely one of loyalty to the school. If athletics are worth the slight est consideration they are worth the very best efforts of tho.e who participate in them, and it goes without saying that such efforts are possible only by athMes in the very best physical condition.

With as good a road between Urattleboro and Ilernardston as an ex tension of this road would bring about, there is no doubt that a great deal of the tourist traffic which has been bearing right at the llernard.-ton Inn would keep straight north on this side of the Con necticut, thus passing through this town and finding above here fully as good roads as are "encountered by the New Hampshire route; The Meddler hopes that the proposed new buildings on Elliot street will be built of brick or some other firenroof Ju a t o i- i a I There are too many wooden structures in that localitv at tli nrxinr ti vvrt&my if t, ' ' , 1(M, Wfltf.r n,irp .section is ever to be improved it ' , . .-.... i. .. .

"The winter" will be long and cold.. observed the prophets, bent and old. who know the goosebanc lore; "the signs and tokens all agree that there'll be weather tierce to see, and stormy winds-will roar. The little creatures of the w-oods have stored up nuts and other goods in quantities immense in hunting deep and stormproof lairs, the groundhogs and the grizzly, bears have manifested sense. The bark, is thicker on the trees," the 'prophet say : "such signs as these were never known to fail; we'll have a winter long and stern, and he who'd have some coal to bum should salt away -his kale." The sign. and tokens all agree, and yet the seers don't worry me,. for always they are wrong; I rever knew a prophet yet on whom a man might safely bet; tin; winter won't be long. The winter won't be long or cold, since length -and fierceness are foretold by these prophetic boysj the skies will be serene and clear, and Gentle Annie will appear, and raise a cheerful noise. There may. be sundry puffs of snow, and now and then cold 'winds may blow, but they will wink out soon; when all the prophets are agreed that winter will be tierce indeed, it's sure to be like June. When prophets differ Ave can't guess what sort of elemental stress is scheduled to appear; but when they're ad agreed we know that nothing they predict is so, and thus our course is clear.
