MANNERS. Many people who would like to go to an occasional movie have given it up be cause they are unable to enjoy the show or the music when they get tkere. The people who talk, the people who spoon and the child who asks questions every other minute have become -too obtrusive. They take the center of the stage, so to speak, and reduce music and movie to a mere background. Then there are the people who love motor-camping or woods picnics, who l ave found every pleasant stopping place along the roads littered with -tin cans and papers and debris of all kinds. They used to clean, up after the sloppy pic nickers before getting out their own luncheon, but nowadays there' are so many sloppy picnickers that it has be come too discouraging. A great many automobile - accidents are due to the same lack of manners. The attitude of caring for nobody's com fort but their own which is disgusting in the theatre and on the picnic ground becomes, with the power of a gas engine in its control, not only disgusting but dangerous. What a fine thing it would be if the ill-mannered ones would begin to take l" though for others and thus be enabled to realize that in serving the comfort of their neighbors they, were at the same time ministering to their own.

Encouraging College Boj-s. (Bellows Falls Times.) The average board of trade or com- j Biercial organization ia absolutely true i w x y y. , a lis wwp to its name. Simply thinks in terms of trade and commercializes every proposi tion which as an organization it con siders. Positively selrish as a rule in every plan hat is devised. Kvery man connected with the affair thinks in dol lars and cents. Members contribute liberally for outside industries to take up their place of abode within our midst be lieving that the pay roll will eventually revert back to the local men. Some time it does and sometimes it doesn't. This is a fact and we defy any mem ber of the local board of trade to deny. Each year this community has several voun mn wh graduate from the dif- 1 ferent colleges. They come home after receiving their diploma, look arouna tor two months, see nothing to do, nosug gestions or opportunities given and they leave town. Under the circumstances it is the proper thing to do and they show good judgment by pursuing such a course. What would happen if a plan was put into operaton whereby the local board of trade took a live interest in the boys entering college and showed some signs of helping these young men which would fasten them to Waterbury after receiv ing their degree. There is not a worthwhile industry but some of our college boys will lit and with the right sort of encouragement 1 1 mething of a practical nature could be develowd. Think what it would mean if nly one healthy start was made. It would lie the beginning and we have faith to believe would result in many enterprisCAwhich would reflect credit on he board of trade as being worthy of its iiame. Waterbury Record.

Another summer season is closing, one that has been of much benefit to. New Hampshire and Vermont as summer re sorts. The hotels have had good busi ness generally, entertaining many people who never came this way before, as well as thousands who have long realized the attractions offered in the two states for a real vacation amid wonderful scenery. Probably, jf not a single thing should be done to increase summer, patronage next year it would be greater. Many of those who have been here this year will spread the news, thus sending others to the section next" year who never came before. But that is not enough. Vermont and New Hampshire enjoy exceptional pat ronage as summer resorts, but they could and should entertain even more guests from other parts of the country. It is no time to lie back on the oars. It is time to be pulling hard. The Vermont hotel men have done much the past year to show what guests may expect in Vermont, and their New Hampshire brethren - have decided to do likewise. Their efforts should meet with hearty approval of the citizens and they hould be Kiven every support.- There is hardly a town but what could benefit itself and thus increase the benefit to its state as a whole by some, inexpensive publicity. It only remains for someone in each place to start the ball rolling. The Times suggests that every town hereabout get busy this inter. Let every business man in the towns use for his correspondence envelopes bearing a few words concerning the attractions of his town. Let each resident use a few sending letters to friends in other parts of the country. And not a little good can be-rlone by the use of attractive signs on main roads in the town informing travelers where they are, what the town has to offer them and extending a wel come. It pays to advertise. mi Confidence in Vermont Hotels. (IJarre Times.) The confidence which the owners of the Summit house on Mount Mansfield feel in the iKrssibilities of Vermont as a summer resort ought to be shared in by various other interests of the state. Not only did these people spend thousands of dollars last summer in making a fine road part way down the mountain from the site of their hostelry but they are now going ahead to improve the accom modations in their little hotel bv the ail- ; dition of twenty sleeping rooms and bv the installation of bathing facilities. The Summit" house is far from palatial; it is even primitive in appearance and in some of its architectural features; but at the same time it is comfortable and has an air of coziness about it that appeals to the tourist who likes nature and just enough of the back woodsy atmosphere to give a zest to the experience of moun tain life. There is really nothing, that pleases antl satisfies more, after a tramp over the physiognomy of the Old Man of the Mountain, than to sit down to an appetizing supper (yes, supper; none of your night dinner designation) and afterwards to, go into the lounging room, draw up before a roaring fire in the old i box stove and recount experiences with kindred spirits. The life has a distinc- tion all its own, Knowing the appealing nature of their environment, the proprietors of the Sum mit house have piled up. expenditures on thejr original' investment and are con tinuing to il ) so in order to make their facilities more attractive. They thereby reveal faith in Mount Mansfield as a summer resort, faith in the future of all Vermont in that same line of industry. That faith is ijnite likely to be rewarded by fair reti:rrs later oj, int as similar faith iu.'vV-iin'iii i likely to S,r!jisr fiir refni-r.s in orl.er . to-rii"ns. We rted a jji w iiifi?--iin of this business faith. Good Eyes Are Rare. The Eyesight Conservation Council of America has issued an announcement showing an alaming statq of affairs as far as our eyesight is concerned.

(Express and Standard.) The speed with which the highway commission rushed through the meeting when the report of that foody was before it, looks as if there was "something rot ten in the state of Denmark." According to all information which we can gather Mr. Bates was not given a fighting chance at the meeting, but was caught in the gearing and thrown out before he had a chance to say. Ah, yes or no. We do not understand that Mr. Bates had n supplementary or minority report, but that he went to the meeting prepared to call in question some of the printed statements of the report. The minutes of the meeting as published in the press later would seem to imply that the re port was unanimously adopted. Where as, as a matter of fact, Mr. Bates either voted no or did not vote at all but was not recorded as so doing. Under the circumstances no selfre specting officer could remain on the board. To ask such an officer as was done later to submit a minority report to his colleagues for their consideration, and take their verdict as to whether it should he "published or not, is only adding insult to injury. It goes without saying that no official wfTuld consent to that. It looks as though there was a chance for some explaining by some one of the board, f Uncovering Ancrent City of Sardis.
