If is easy to get a wrons view of tax free securities and an unfair opinion of those who invest in them. Granting that the present flow of investment money in this direction is unfortunate, because it tends to starve industrial enterprise and gives the government less taxes, a fair- minded person must admit that such in vestment is legitimate. It may be unpat riotic, in the larger sense, but it is not reprehensible. It is a natural form of investment just now, owing to unusual conditions. There must be bond issues, and bond is sues must have purchasers, and there must lie a public market for them. Mod ern business is based on this foundation as much as on any. Rond-s are simply mortgages, secured like any other form of mortgage. Investors turn to them in a time when other invest ments are doubtful. Stocks are different ; they represent partnerships in the busi ness, and business partnerships just now are not rated so high as usual becauso profits are doubtful. S' stocks are down and bonds are up. The latter pay comparatively low rates of interest, but they pay regularly. Free dom from taxation is an added incentive at present, but it is only a detail. Ronds that are not free from taxation have to pay higher interest rates or sell at a lower valuation, or both. Such matters adjust themselves auto matically in the market. When corpora tions start making big profits again, bond-owners will be unloading their bonds and loading up again with stocks. was rebuffed. The world was not ready for the idea. And now we are entering upon a 10 year holiday, with the three leading powers voluntarily scrapping nearly a million tons of fighting ships, while all the nations applaud.

Xext to picking a wife for the Prince of Wales the greatest of Europ ean pastimes, is that of picking a king for this Italkan principality. Douglas Fairbanks in his movie stunts has nothing on the I'roctorsville man, who. when an engine struck at a grarle crossing the automobile ifi which he was riiling. jumped and caught onto the cow catcher and rode unharmed until the train was stopped. Chicago's prohibition chief, who has promised to make that city "so dry it will squeak," has started in with the ar rest of r0i) persons for violation of the "dry" laws. Even that number will hardly start a single squeak in Chicago. No doubt the "sick wife" who was rushed across West river bridge the other night to save her life will recover in time ito enjoy the. holiday festivities. VERMONT NEWS.

The Germans frequently flavor their tea with cinnamon and rum. THE FIGHTING ANIMAL. Still there are cynics who keep on par roting the familiar refrain : "You can't stop warfare, because man is a fighting animal, and human nature never changes." . Whether human nature at bottom really changes -may ! open to discussion, but that is not exactly what the cynics usually mean. They mean that human nature keeps right on expressing itself, age after age, in the same way. And history, past and present, is crammed with facts disproving that assumption. Take this naval holiday business. Sup lose any (Statesman, native or foreign, had suggested 10 years ago that we will all -top building warships and sink half of what we had. including our latest and test models. He would have been howled down as a crazy dreamer. The British government in 11)13, driven by fear of the growing German navy and the increasing cost of armament, did sound out the German government about a two-year suspension of building, and promptly withdrew the proposal when it Tlig Growth of Christmas Clubs." (Bellows Falls Times.) Christmas Cutis as an educating force in establishing the habit of saving, espe cially in the young, are coming to the front more prominently each year. The jhinks of the country are now handling tnese ciuds in a systematic way witn tne result that the number of members and the aggregate of savings increase re markably from year to year. So import- Iant has the Christmas club idea become that the American Bankers' association fas this year made a survey of the snb 'ject and found that about $200,000,000 was distributed by the clubs inTl'JO. And He Did! As to Anto Fees. (Manchester Journal.) Much adverse criticism has from time to time been leveled at the so-called, in justice of the rates charged by Vermont for auto fees, comparing them with Mas sachusetts. New York. New Jersey, etc. Perhaps it will be brought out that we were not so very far out of the way after all as it now appears the Common wealth of Massachusetts finds it is not getting enough out of what it charges and a bill is to be introduced in the next legislature looking to a decided increase in auto fees. Acting for the Capital. (Barre Times.) Marshal Foch may be pardoned, per haps, if perchance he considered Brattle boro the capital of Vermont.
