DUPRAY COULD NOT DO A BIT OF WORK IN WEEKS After Effects of Flu' Now Overcome and Middlebury Citizen. Feels Like a New Person Gives, Tanlac . Credit "If ever a medicine made a new man out of a fellow, Tanlac certainly has done it for ine," said Ben Dupray of MMdlebnry. Vt. "Two yenrs ago last fall when we were living in New Haven, Vt., I had the 'flu' and it left me so weak I wasn't able to go back to work for months. My stomach, which had been bothering me for years, got worse and it seemed that 1 couldn't eat a thing but what caused indigestion. My back ached a lot and iny nerves kept me restless and at a high pitch all the time. I was bothered a great deal of constipation and could not find a thing to relieve me. .- "I was getting worse every day when a friend advised me to take Tanlac. The way it tixed me up was remarkable. I have picked up ten pounds and feel just fine in every way. Tanlac is simply grand." Tanlac is sold by all good druggists.

A re-opening of the discussions be tween the Russians and the other powers at The Hague is hanging in the air. Al though the original conference has been officially declared cloned there seems to be a tendency on the part of delegates and sub-committees to linger on, presum ably m the hope that some agreement yet may be accomplished. It is not surprising that both sides feel the pressing need for some sort of working agreement. The stagnation of such a tremendous territory as Russia is a bad thing for everybody immediately or remotely concerned. But there can be no practical, satisfactory, or honorable traffic with Russia so long as the Bol shevist program is upheld. Bolshevism and practical commerce do not mix. Time spent trying to make them do so is wasted. The sooner the other powers, particu larly Great Britain, recognize this definitely and refuse finally to discuss matters until there is a change in the Russian policy the better. So long as the Russians have any ground for hope that they may win out without chang ing their theories they will not change them. "When they understand definitely that Europe will do no business with them on their ground of "What's yours is mine, and what's mine is my own," they will have to change their platform. HOT, CROSS DOGS. Let dogs alone in hot weather! As the thermometer rises wisdom indicates that it is better not to pet strange canines nor tease the Lome pet.' Stray dogs running the streets should be herded in by the authorities, the pets should be kept at home, provided with clean food and then let alone. Water should be plenty in private yards and on the streets. Leash and muzzle must play their part when necessary. Every year when the hot days come the mad dog scares begin. As a matter of fact few of the dogs who do the nip ping have rabies. They are only hot and cross, just like Human beings. Not being human they cannot vent their woes in biting words, their only . method of defense against irritating weather con ditions and still more 'irritating people is their teeth, and so they use them. Co operation between the authorities, the private owner and the public will reduce even these less serious casualties to a minimum. Isn't it a sad commentary that when we have motored in to attend church on Sunday Ave lock our ignition system, lock our tool box, lock our spare tires, see that all wraps are removed, congrat ulate ourselves that we have insurance against theft and then go in to the serv ice? Randolph Herald. This sad state of affairs is brightened somewhat by the fact that in spite of the crime Wave the editor still goes to church.

A country club and golf course opened for colored piople at West field, , N. J., is appropriately called Shady Rest. A Good Point. (Randolph Herald.) In trying to score one against the present state highway organization the Brattleboro Reformer makes onq good point in its favor. It says the big Montpelier personnel of "map-makers and other experts" in the department " makes necessary the printing of sev eral extra menus at the Pavilion hotel." Boston's Street System. (Boston Transcript.) Boston needs no system of numbered streets, as the existing names afford suf ficient guidance. Winter street Cannot be far behind, and when you are in Milk street you know that Water street must come next. Getting Down to Business. s (Montpelier Argus.) The Brattleboro police have been called before the village commissioners to discuss complaints about non-enforcement of certain laws, especially the auto mobile speed laws, and the police were told they would be backed to the limit. That's the stuff ! Looking for Bootleg. . (St. Johnsbury Caledonian.) Last week Governor Hart ness's car was held up and searched by federal agents. looking for bootleg stuff, and now Senator Dillingham has been overhauled "on the highway for the same purpose. When we hear that Frank Plumley of Northfield. Curtis S. Emery of Newport and Judge Leighton P. Slack of St. Johnsbury have been similarly dealt with, we shall begin to think there is really something in it. Another Dangerous Driver. (Randolph Herald.) One meets all kinds of drivers in the road on a pleasant day. but next to the intoxicated one, the fellow who has his best girl along and is steering most of the way with one hand is about the most dangerous. lrattleboro Reformer. About, but not quite. How about the girl who doesn't know how- to steer, but is being "shown" by the fellow with both arms around her? , No Barge Terminal Needed. (Rutland Herald.) ' The, St. Albans Messenger notes that the steam packet line between New-. York and Burlington is on the point of giving up the ghost because of lack of business. There has always, of course, been sufii cient docking accommodation for this one line at Burlington, yet the legislature of 1919 would have committed Vermont to a barge terminal at Burlington had the bill not been vetoed. Why a barge line when a steam packet can't get freight enough to live? It takes the best part of a year to turn out a first-class tennis racquet. For the finest specimens only the lower part of the parent ash trunk is used and it is kept for several months to be properly seasoned.

Us children liked the kitchen room About the best of all; We liked the clock with great, big head And feet and legs so small, That stood 'way up so tall; Another place wa liked as well, And I don't know but more, Was where the cooking 'tensils hung Behind the buttery door. Each thing was on its proper nail, . Jest where it ought to ,be, Or t Ise stood back upon the shelf, Like grandma's Hysou tea, Too fur for sis of me; "The iron brownbread spoon, so old It showed the iron ore Right throught the tin, was number one Behind the buttery door. The cookie cutters then was next, By (ol! they hung up high; The biggest one cut out a dog That had a holler eye, Through which a fly could fiy; And one, it' cut a lion out, , -Although he. couldn't roar Twas like a bit of Nora's ark Behind the buttery door. ' i t Then came the nutmeg grater rough As sinners' tongues that scoff; The cutest box to hold the nut, A little chute or trough To run the powder oil; The straddling piefork hung the next, I 'blieve on number four My Stars!

That beat an etrg up fine enough For spirit folks to. eat; ' We bought the thTng complete, ; But, didn't throw away the spoon - We'd used for years before We wasn't much on thinning out Behind the buttery door.

Ice-cream is said to have been known to the Japanese in the 13th century. -.4 :.- . TUE GENTLE. SEX.".f' - . ' If you want a. tale that's gory, let a woman write the same; to com-l pound a thrilling story I'd appoint some gentle dame. Man at times seeing rather sparing, daubing in the scarlet tones, but a woman, greatly daring,? fills her narrative with bones. When her inspiration's wrapped her she ha blood and bones to spare, with a corpse in every chapter, and. an inquest, here and there. Woman writes detective stories by the bushl,'!in these times, .and we can't deny the glories of her plots and sleuths and crimes! And thej reader murmurs sadly, ''What a , dragon she must be, sbe who writes so blithely, gladly, of red carnage in a sea !" Then some-day the reader sees her, and he cries aloud, "Gadzooks !" And a most astonished geezer is that reader of her books. For she's quiet and retiring, she is of a queenly grace p and if bloodshed she's desiring, there's no symptom in her face. Nearly all this season's thrillers are by female authors writ ; through their pages wild eyed killers like the movie phantoms flit. And the gentle authors render all their fury in their books; in their private lives they're tender, drinking tea" in quiet nooks. ' . ,w r. '.
