Cobb of the board of assessors yesterday defeated Bart Smith in a clam-eating, contest held at Anawam Grange in Rehoboth. Assessor Cobb de; voured 117 pans to his opponent's 2'J. Each pan held two quarts. There has been considerable rivalry between the two men as to their prowess in clam eating. Friends of both decided to put them to a test. Besides the clams, eacli c-ontestant was obliged to eat his share of watermelon. Representative William I'lattner was referee. Senator Silas D. J teed, Stanley Hall and several other well-known politicians acted as a com mittee on rules. I I T i I and yon install gating!

Nokol is not merely a better way of heating, though it is as supe rior to current methods of heating with coal as electric light is to the tallow dip Nokol is heating com fort in the most emphatic sense you can read into that phrase. Nokol automatically gives a heating service that no janitor could approach, if he gave his whole time to your furnace. main tains an even heat, thermostatically con trolled, at precisely the temperature you wish, regardless of the winter weather. Nokol does more. It rids your home for ever of the dirt and grime of coal and ashes. Nokol burns kerosene, or Nokol fuel, with a sootless, odorless flame. Nokol, plumbing and electric light the three great modern conveniences for your home. The Nokol Heater burns oil, in any type of heating plant, instead of coal. It can be in stalled in a few hours. Controlled by a ther- , ' mostat, it consumes only the amount of fuel necessary to maintain the temperature desired. It operates automatically.

J HANNA HALONEN OF CREAMERY Wardsboro Butter 'Maker and Manager Over 20 Years RAY E. LYMAN HER SUCCESSOR Miss Ilalonen Made Creamery Cleanest in Countrj't Accordinr to Federal Dairy Officer, and Won Many Honors in High liutter Scoring. (Special to The Reformer.) WARDSBORO, Aug. IS. Miss Ilanna Ilalonen, who-has served as butter maker and plant manager of the Wardsboro creamery for over 20 years, and who has made for herself an enviable record in that capacity, has re- ;- 1 in j - , . , i t ftfc- '.. ...... J. A,. MISS IIANNA IIALOXEN. ccntly tendered her resignation to the creamery association. During the time Miss Ilalonen has been here she has won many honors for the creamery and for herself, scoring high in all butter contests with other cream eries in the state, and three times win ning the loving cup given by the Brattle boro Board of Trade to 'that creamery in the county which through its improve ments inside and outside presented the i neatest and most attractive appearance. ! On the first occasion when the cup was presented the president of the Board of Trade said : "'Wardsboro has made no improvements for the reason that there are none to be made." According to a statement made by a federal dairy officer, who probably has iu spected more creameries all over t iw I'nited States than any other man. Miss Ilalonen has the cleanest creamery in the country. Besides putting out a high grade of butter, which has never lacked a market, she has often utilized the but termilk, and made a delicious brand of I Hitch cheese, which has always for nd a ready sale. At one time she used the proceeds from the cheese for the purpose of painting the outside and inside of the creamery. Coming here as a stranger in a strange land, having come over from Finland only two years previous, she has adapted herself to the needs of the community in a remarkable way ami while keeping her I own work above' criticism she has don much in soci.il service. During the Lib erty Ixian drive she was chairman for the town and was instrumental in rais ing nearly .20,0O to the credit of the town, exceeding the quota in the last three loans. That the resignation of Miss Ilalonen was brought about is a matter of regret to the stockholders of the creamery in general and to many friends far and near. It is gratifying to know that she will continue to make Wardsboro her home and will accept no position else where at present Iteyond the continuance of. the chemical iniik and cream testing for the Windham County Milk Produc ers association of Brattleboro, which she has done as a side issue since February. Hay 11. Lyman of Stratton has been engaged to succeed Miss Ilalonen as but termaker and to succeed Mr. Glenson as manager, who also has resigned after years of faithful service to the cream ery association. Mr. -Lyman needs no recommendation to the people in this community, lie is a self-made man and has held the high est honors his native town could give. He has endeavored to fit himself for the po sition he has secured and it is expected that he will make good. The people of Wardslwo are glad to welcome Mr. Ly man and family. 23-25, and an attendance of 3."0 is ex pected. These lecturers in a body will be at Dartmouth college the night of Aug. 2.". The next morning, Saturday, Aug. 26, the party will leave for Bellows Falls, reaching here about 10 a. m. and will inspect the plant and products of the Vermont Farm Machine Corp. This cor poration n w sells all its products through the Grange organization. Fol lowing the inspection of the plant, lunch eon will be served at the Hotel Windham, NORTH WESTMINSTER WANTS LESS SPEED Petitions State for Traffic Officer Say Main Street Is Used as Speedway Despite Had Road. WESTMINSTER, Aug. IS. Some of the residents of INortb. estminster are thoroughly aroused over the speed men ace. They say that their main street is being used by autoists for a speedway and that the lives of children and even adults are in danger. It is said that conditions have been reported to the selectmen of Westminster, but they re fuse or neglect to take any action. Friday George A. Bailey passed among the residents for signatures to a petition to the selectmen and if they refuse to try and stop the speeding it will be sent to" state authorities asking that a traffic officer be appointed who shall put a curb on speeding autoists. W. K. Church, first constable for the town of Westmin ster, has had signs painted and put up at both ends of the village which read. '"Speed limit through this village miles an hour,," and on several occasions has stopped autoists who have exceeded the speed limit, taken their numbers and warned them that if they are stopped the second time something else will hap pen. By this method some of the speed sters have been driving much slower through the village. It is thought that a few arrests followed by good, stiff tines will have a salutary effect. Why drivers of automobiles want to speed through North Westminster is a hard question to answer. The road is full of hides and driving at slow speed affords plenty of bumps and a constant strain on springs. A thriving village like this one deserves a better road. NEW.POPE CLOSELY WATCHES HIS COOK Trying to Reduce Expenses of Larder Domestic Reorganization at the Vatican, ROME, Aug 18. A fresh and search ing wind of inquiry and reorganization is blowing through the Vatican with the advent of the new pope, and some of the old-established dependents of , the pal ace, who are very numerous, find it alto gether too bracing to be pleasant. Pius XI comes of a" practical aud prosperous bourgeois stock, and feels himself per fectly competent to look into even the smallest details of the vast organization of which he is the head. The pontiff, while adhering on state and ceremonial occasions to all the pomp and splendor which is traditional in the Basilica of St. Peter and the Vatican palace, desires that his private life be ruled by a truly apostolic simplicity and frugality, and he is reported to have said that he intends to stiend money rather on the propagation of the faith than on the restoration or beautifying of build ings and monuments. In Italian households, humble or aris tocratic, the cook buys all that is nec essary for the feeding of the family, and good housewives usually go through the cook s accounts every day in order to keep check on them. It appears that His Holiness does the same. It is re lated that the other day a fowl, price 20 lire (rather less than a dollar) was pro vided for the pope's supper. For some reason he did not eat it, and orders were given that the following day. the cook make chicken croquettes for lunch. The croquettes duly arrived, but- when the accounts were looked through in the evening it was found that another fowl, price 20 1 ire, had been charged in the cook's book. The cook was called in and "had his head washed," which is the quaint expression for getting a good scolding, and the pope told him he has no use for any servant who was not strictly honest and . accurate . in his charges.
