Large deposits of talc have lteen dis covered at Montgomery Center. Already Vermont produces more 'tale than any other state, and there are said to be mrfrv talc' deposit as yet unworked.

He adds that "a clear recognition of the conditions as they exist should help us to realize this hope." In large part the troubles of the farmer today are due to world-wide conditions and the inevitable result of the World war, the secretary of agriculture fcaye, adding that it is not to be expected that by some "miraculous transformation" the period of adversity may le turned over night into a period of prosperity. High freight rates, big crops produced jn the face of high costs, unemployment in other industries in the country with attendant lessening in buying of food stuffs, and the lack of foreign markets for the farm surplus are given by the secre tary as the more immediate causes for present conditions in agriculture. lie lays particular stress on the lack of for eign markets and high freight ' rates.

A slight change in the schedule of the Foch special train has been made, so that instead of arriving here at S o'clock as announced the train will not reach here until 8.25 o'clock. It will remain 15 minutes, however, as pre viously planned, leaving at 8.40. Brattleboro post is busy making ar rangements and is making them with a view to avoiding any loss of time. It is planned to have the Foch train stop so that the car containing the noted French man will be directly opposite the stairway at the railroad station. The crowd will not be allowed in. the station, and an aisle will be roped off through the sta tion, through which the official party will pass out the front entrance. A platform is being erected on the walk from the station to the street, the top of which will be level with the top of tha wall between the sidewalk and Bridge street. A program of speaking will take place on the platform. This will bring Alarshal Foch up high enough so that everybody can see him. As soon as Alarshal Foch mounts the platform the Brattleboro Alilitary band wilpfday the French national hymn. The Alarseilaise. Commander Ernest W. Gib son of Brattleboro post will present Gwv.
