The whole civilized world has been interested in the success of the gliding 1 lanes recently demonstrated in Europe. Yet, while they were regarded as open ing an entirely new branch of aviation and as rather marvelous achievements in themselves, few persons believed they would ever come to be of any practical use. Glenn II. Curtiss, an American leader in airplane development, has suggested two possible uses for the glider. One is the small motored plane which would make use of gliding possibilities as well as of its comparatively, small engine. Such a plan would cost less than $1.(H0 ami would be suitable for very general use, for sport and commercial purposes. The other suggested development is the air train. Mr. Curtiss has been ex perimenting recently with sea gliders. Towed by a speed boat, a glider rose from the water and reached a height of "0 feet. While the glider is in the air the tug on the tow line is not great. In one llight, when the tow-line was cut the plane stayed up 40 seconds, then alighted gracefully and safely on the water. Mr. Curtiss believes that this is the forerunner of the air train a series of gliders towed by a hydroplane, starting from the water level and rising as high as necessary, following the motored plane easily and alighting safely at the end of the trip. There my be trains of gliders towed by airplanes. Gliding experiments are so new that it is impossible to prophesy their full future development. It. is more than likely, however, that the successes so far! achieved have been merely beginnings, opening the eyes and minds of inventors and air-engineers to a big new field of experiment and progress. CHURCH MERGERS. An executive of a big denominational union maintains that one of thp most serious obstacles to church progress is "too many small churches and too few large, centrally located churches." He speaks particularly of the situa tion in large communities. In his own city his denomination is represented by 2S churches. He is satisfied that if that number were cut to 20, the result would be a stronger influence exerted by the united churches and the reaching of more people than is possible at present. "Larger churches," he says, "mean attractive buildings with social, recrea tional and educational equipment, ade quately manned by a staff of workers and substantially financed." He speaks of a feature of such merg ers seldom thought of the effect on the foreign-born among whom the church work is to be extended. Foreigners, he suggests, are "familiar with the dignity and stateliness of European churches," and expert something of the same sort here. But it is seldom possible without large congregations. There is a strong tendency in recent years to merge rural churches, even those of different denominations. This process becomes easier with the break ing down of denominational differences and with the examples set in business and education. If city banks and coun try schools can merge, argue the relig ious efficiency advocates, why not y6 t '"'- '5 ...U ' ;-' . c i . churches, too? Particularly as the cen tral idea of religion is human unity. Word comes from Berlin that German Christmas toys will be more expensive than ever before. Prices cannot be forecast with accuracy, but it is pre dicted that an increase of l.V) per cent in the cost of many articles may be ex pected. America has advanced so rap idly in the making of satisfactory toys that the conditions governing the for eign supply affect us less than formerly. Then. too. German toys are not so pop ular as they were before the war, and if the Teuton prices soar too high, the dealers will find their stuff neglected just as it was rejected in war times. An unusual golf competition was scheduled at a Cleveland. (., country club yesterday. It was a tournament for golfers who had made a ''hole in one" and is said to have been the only tourna ment of its kind ever held in the coun try. P.rattleboro, while not represented, has a player who would have been eligi ble. The 7."-year fair attendance of Melvin Walker of Whiting. Vt., beats only by a narrow margin that of Mrs. Clara Hastings, 02, of Gill, Mass., who has attended every Greenfield fair since the first one 73 years ago. The primaries did not stir up any great amount of enthusiasm in cither Vermont or New Hampshire. Six New Hampshire towns held no primary elec tions on account of the citizens' lack of interest. One newspaper tells us to do our coal shopping early, while another suggests that we put one of those "Don't open until Christmas" stickers on the furnace. Up to date the Republicans seem to be holding the fort in Landgrove and Peru. Not a single Democratic vote was cast in either town Tuesday. Secretary Hoover wants the coal trade reorganized. The public is with him. The old-line politician knows that the man who bolts his party is a nut. "ToreaIor" and Other Styles. (St. Albans Messenger.) AVho wi'l be the first Beau Brummel in Vermont to wear those bell-bottom, side-laced, pearl button-be-decorated trousers exhibited in the name of art in clothes at the National Clothiers asso ciation exhibition? One never can tell. It wasn't so far back that the average he-male scoffed at the idea of wearing knickers, as a mode so ultra-kiddish and dudish that even the younger men tried to hide behind their clubs when on the golf course. And look at 'em now! Father couldn't make the course in less than 110 on a bet if he didn't have the proper togs. Those with classic limbs also seemingly delight to appear in pub lic places, offices and elsewhere, in knickers, and the wooly-woolies that go with them. But you can always tell the man who has just adopted the knicker mode. He's always "just going for a round of golf," or he says in a rather devil-may-carish sort of way he far from feels, "So comfortable, you know." "Wish I'd taken them up long ago," or "the boys said to me, 'Jim. you'll never make a golfer until' " etc., etc. You know 'em all, so what's the use Mean while, the women are wearing 'em longer as the men wear 'em shorter and are merely waiting for tbe mongrel trousers mentioned above to appear to have the last laugh. No. you never can tell who Dame Style will pick on next. 4 Can Stay at Home. (Springfield Reporter.) The Brattleboro Reformer notes that there were sent to a state hospital for the feeble-minded last year 139 single men and not one married man. The lat ter are more fortunate than their single brethren in having someone at home capable of looking after them. 1 CLIPPINGS With Now a Comment and The Only a Caption.

A pad old man sat by the sea, and wept in trumpet tones, and every time he looked at me he heaved some bitter groans; "I was a merchant prince," quoth he; "my name is Jimpson Jones. I had the finest dry goods store that ever eyes beheld, and strangers, when they glanced it o'er, threw' up their hands and yelled; I was a happy man, of yore, but all my joys are knelled. 'I will retire from active life,' I said, though trade was fine; 'I'm weary of the toil and strife, at ease 1 would'reeline ;' I was encouraged by my wife, and by my daughters nine. 'In some nice grad beside the sea,' I said, 'I shall abide; a chair beneath a banyan tree, and I'll be satisfied; there with my pipe and fiddlers three, I'll let life's autumn slide.' And oft I heard my wife declare that such a course was bef t ; my daughters went up in the air and said I needed rest ; and so I sold out every share, and all that I possessed. All day I sit beside the wave and sigh and beat my slats, and people, when they hear me rave, imagine I have bats; oh, I would thank some surly knave to shoot me with his gats. For when a man is used to trade, with all its rush and roar, he feels like something dead, decayed, when he's outside a store; he'd see things measured out and weighed, and rest's an awful bore. I sec you with your wooden lyre, you swat it once or twice, and while I sit here and perspire, I hand you this advice: Oh, never from your graft retire, while you can put up ice."

The use of the word "teller," as ap plied to a bank cashier, is of interesting origin. In the early days, when banks were still more or less a curiosity, women used frequently to drop in ami ask clerks unnecessary questions. The officials, feeling that their duty was to attend to bank matters rather than to the inquisi tive inquiries of the fair sex, got into the habit of passing the visitor on to a neighbor, remarking as they did so, "You tell her, I'm busy." in Tea Qualit V Selling Cost B271 v 1 It
