"WHAT'S YOURS IS MINE."
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
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
Isn't it a sad commentary that when
we have motored in to attend church on

There has always, of course, been sufii

of 1919 would have committed Vermont
to a barge terminal at Burlington had
the bill not been vetoed. Why a barge

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
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! I'd like to look again
Behind the buttery door.
One time a peddler come along
With something mighty neat.
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.
'Twould take a week to calkerlate
How many things there was.
From strainer dish to sweetcake knife.
That come from Santa Claus;
It makes my penstalk paine
To think thev all were, used by hands
Whose "faithful tasks are o'er
I os !t' better riot to look -
Behind the butterv door.

-.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. '. "V '
