The editor of the Breeder's Gazette magazine of stock raising, was invited to go to the agricultural conference at Washington, but he did not go, becau he felt that what this country and the world needs is not more talk but more work. V.'hile understanding and respectuj the purposes and hopes of the confer enee, he had this to say: "We believe that hard work, thrift and economy offer the only way out the "ne absolutely sure way out and with all due deference to the President, who lent the dignity of his great office to the opening session, we wish to say that the attle and hogs on feed today in the rn belt are doing more for the restora tion of prosperity every 21 hours than the "talkfests" can accomplish in a year. '"There is not an intelligent man, woman it child in America but knows that we are suffering not from some in curable or dangerous disease, but from the wounds of the war gunshot wounds, if you please; and thec are to be healed by time and honest co-operation, not bj patent medicines. '"Relieving that all should practice what they preach. xand believing that the man who attends to bis own business closely these days is the one who is do ing the most for his country, we have saved the price of the Washington ticket, a hotel bill and a Aveek's time." It i.-s a philosophy which cannot be emphasized too often or too strongly. The conferences are good as far as they go, but they can never take the place of individual "hard work, thrift and econ omy" in the netrlal restoration of indi vidual and national prosperity. A Los Angeles judge dealing with se rious traffic rule infractions has hit upon a punishment which really appears to fit the crime. Fines were tried with lit tle success and over-speeding and other offenses still continued. Finally the judge established a rock pile at one po lice station and proceeded to sentence law-breaking motorists to from 10 to ISO days breaking rocks for roads. The first day of the new regime saw 13 of fenders at this city rock pile and there is no suggestion that a good time was had by anyone except the judge. A dras tic measure, perhaps, but the insolent and defiant attitude of a few selfish mo torists in every community is forcing the adoption of sterner methods everywhere. A well known Parisian modiste not only identifies her work by attaching her autograph to every garment, but to avoid all possibility of fraud adds her thumb-print for good measure. This is an idea for other manufacturers a new kind of trade mark. Later we may see such instructions as these: "Look for the thumb-print on the label," or "None genuine without our finger prints." Commissioner Ilaynes has instructed federal prohibition directors in all states to co-operate to the fullest extent with physicians and druggists wherever in fluenza is raging or there is other catas trophe. Some insist that we have been suffering from a public catastrophe for the last two years. One building defect would be enough, but the engineers picked to probe the Knickerbocker theatre tragedy at Wash ington report the discovery of twenty- f pcetnTV of X ROOM (N FRONT 1' SlS- ' T f ALWAYS 1 Vfevu V Room on?. What do building inspectors amount to if they caM overlook even one or two? The Massachusetts legislature is once more wrestling with the daylight saving law. Southern Vermont continues to be an interested bystander. Blaming things ou the movies may give prohibition a little rest. Already, Mr. Foote. (Morrisville Messenger.) Two receptive candidates for governor. Max L. Powell and Frank E. Howe, have defined their position on the road ques - tion. 1 he former is for bonding the state to build trunk lines that u-p mnv pniov them and let our children pay for them, The latter says, "pay as we go," "no bonds." Now listen to Abe Foote. ' Crude Summary? (Rutland Herald.) In contrasting the abilities as pub lie servants of Representatives Barber of Wilmington and Barber of Brattleboro, the Wilmington Times says that the legislator from its town "stands head and shoulders above his namesake in mental equipment and knowledge of state af fairs." Isn't this a rather crude summary of the situation? A Hand for Foote. (Rutland Herald.) Lieut. Gov. Abram W. Foote, as of ficial representative of the state, got a strong hand when be was presented to the throng that gathered last Saturday at the christening of Brattleboro's new ski jump course. K Last nite 1 woak up all of a suddin and rememliered there was still a half of a lemmin merrang pie down in the bred box and the more 1 thawt of it the more I frit like a hunk and I got out of bed and started to sneek down stairs in my pidjammers, and there was a lite in the setting room and 1 could heer a newspaper ratteling, proving po was still in there reeding, me thinking," Heck, O well, if I sneek down easj' maybe he wont beer me. And I cot past the settina: room door without pop heering me and I got all the way down to the t'runt hall without him heering me, thinking, llerray, victery, the coast is clear. Wieh jest then wat did I do but bumk into the dining room door in the dark on account of it beimr closed and me try ing to wawk throo it as if it was open, and it made a feerse noise and pop called down. Wats that, who's that? Me jest standing there not hree thins in my pidjammers, and pop dident say eny more and I opened the dining room door slow and it skreeked a little and Ii opened it last and it skreeked a lot! and jest then wat did I do but nock over a . dining room chair, making the werst '. noise yet, and I herd pop jumping up! nrd he called flown over the bannisters, Who's down there, wat is that? Me thinking. Good nite, gosh. And Tj started to sneek up the back stairs quickr iest as pop started to run down the! frunt stairs, and I ran up to mv room) and jumped back into bed ond pulled the. covers up, and pritty soon pon wavvked i in. saying, Benny, are you in bed? j Me jest keeping my eves closed with-' out saying weather I was or not, andj pon came over and felt the bed to see, snyMig to himself. Its confowjided funjiy.j there must of bin somebody there. . j Proving he dident know as mutch as I ' knew, and I went to sleep and dreemwl T ate 12 lemmin merrang pies without stooping and the ony reason T dident eat 13 was because it would of bin xin-4 lucky. The Meddler "It the coat fits you. rut it on." It is wholly within the realm of pos sibility that Brattleboro may stage a more largely attended ski jumping con test than that of last Saturday, and it is even probable that Johnny Carleton's record of 1T0 feet i ci:nso There is s may suffer total tbt likelihood, how ever, that any future contest will take .place under conditions more ideal from j the point of view of the spectators. The weather gods were certainly kind to the ,' winter sports committee of Community Iq; th meet took place. Temperature but two or three degrees higher than that of last Saturday morning would have melted the snow to such a a extent as to have made jumping out of the question. On the other hand, temperature of the sort tl at might easily have prevailed (like that of yesterday, for example! would have made the job of standing in the snow an extremely old one even for folks properly dressed. So far as the jump itself is concerned, there will never be many times when it will be better suited to distance jumping than it was a week ago. All those who participated admitted that it lacked nothing in the way of speed. Indeed, if the committee's prayers for additional snow had been answered it is safe to say the 1, "0-foot mark would not have been approached. There can be no doubt that the contest 'took" wilh the spectators, and the possibilities of future events are even greater than were at first supposed. One good feature of the outlook is that Brattleboro has little to fear in the way of competition. The natural advantages of the local slide place it in a class by itself when it comes to record-breaking possibilities. The success of the carnivals that have been held in Vermont this season, despite instances where the weather was not en tirely satisfactory, suggests to the Rut- And He Did! PLEASE, GET ME Aw CKN -pF THOSE SNIPES OFFj fTjTQ Trotected by George Matthew Adamf land Herald that another winter it might be possible to arrange a circuit of such outings much after the manner that rac'mg events are scheduled. Such a plan would offer plenty of opportunity for originality upon the part of arrangement committees in planning programs and lend a spirit of competition. Starting say the middle of January and ending not later than the middle of February the various outing clubs, hotels, cham bers of commerce, and other organiza tions or individuals interested, could work out a circuit of winter carnivals starting, for instance, in the south part of the state and ending on the northern tier of counties. Such a chai.i of winter sport meetings, the Herald thinks, would naturally attract the followers of such events and more comprehensive programs could be given because oi such assured patronage. Basketball is a perennial sport in St. Johnsbury. If we can judge rightly from the space given it in local newspa pers it is flourishing just as strongly this season as it was 11 years ago this month, when the Caledonia county me tropolis and Brattleboro were ia the throes of a championship series which took up columns of newspaper space, cost hundreds of dollars and ended in a dispute that had the makings of a near riot. In this connection basketball fans will 'note with interest that "Tobey" Matthews, captain of St. Johnsbury's famous 100S team, journeyed up to his old haunts this week at the head of a bunch of hoop artists and showed the folks that age hasn't withered his ability. Edward Wachter, star of . the Brattle boro outfit that went against Matthews'a 1008 aggregation, is now coach of bas ketball at Harvard university. The Gardner, Mass., chamber of com merce directors have filed with the se lectmen resolutions condemning traveling carnival shows, declaring they arc in jurious to the morals of young people and a serious detriment to the entire community, and stating their opposition to "indiscriminate admission." The di rectors recommend that applications for permits to conduct such shows be thor ouhly investigated and only after find ing the applicant reliable in every re spect should permission, to locate be granted. Irt the past few years numer ous Gardner organizations have con tracted with -carnival shows on a per centage basis and replenished their treasuries but the departing entertainers left anything but a good impression The chamber is out to erase Gardner as one of the life-saving stations for this t.vpe of amusement makers, although legiti mate traveling shows will be given a hearty welcome.

Oh, he'd be happy selling quarts of vinegar all !,fleeked with foam; but he is doomed to talk of torts and leases till the cows come home. He'd wrap salt codfish in a poke, and weigh Out prunes with glee and vim; then why did fate spring such a joke, and make a lawyer out of him? And yonder grocer, selling slaw and pickled figs and potted steers he has a talent for the law; be'd make a jury melt in tears. In dreams he argues in a court, and hears astonished people say, "Dan Webster seem a tinhorn sport compared with this toplofty jay." lie hates to labor in a store, and sell old cheese and marmalade, and so he makes his patrons sore, and every day he loses trade.
