POLITICAL ADVERTISING. WHY V? ill A P F R&RRFR? This is No. 4 cf a series of political advertisements issued by the opponents of Mr. Barber's candidacy for representative in the next legislature. Their object is to show why Mr. Barber is not justified in asking re-election why, in the opinion cf his opponents, he is not fitted to represent Brattleboro. Personalities vill have no place in these advertise ments, nq more than they will in the campaign so far as Mr. Barber's opponents are concerned. T. B. MASSACRE. (Rutland Herald, Oct.

Rut. putting it on n cold, business l);-.sis of reason and fairness, what riglit 'hr.s the state to tax about 50 per cent of the population for an enterprise that is supposed to improve the- herds of about 10 per tent? The pretext is that of public health, but that pretext will not hold in the light of statistics. There is not enough tuber culosis of the bovine type anywhere to n-i"inf li As The ilerald looks at it. to actual paternalism when take to tax the-majority for of the minority. it gets down they under time benefit , Against Doctors' Advice By a vote of the legislature of 1921, 400,000 of the state's money went for the eradication of bovine tuberculosis, although there is no certainty that the milk of cows that react to the tuber culin test is more dangerous to public health than the meat of cows killed by order of the State and paid for out of State funds. Frank E. Barber approved this appropriation, which cost the State nearlv half a million dollars, ALTHOUGH IT WAS OP POSED BY REPUTABLE AND EXPERIENCED DOCTORS LIKE SENATORS OSGOOD AND COBURN AND OTHERS on the ground that it was not a public health measure. This was one of the appropriations that brought the last legislature's grand total to the point that made necessary a 40 ceht tax, of which Brattleboro's share was $34,681.93 enough to pay a quarter of the town's total indebtedness. Did Mr. Barber "represent" Brattleboro when he supported this and other expensive measures?, (To be continued.) NOTE In his advertisement of yesterday Mr. Barber says the legisla ture of 1921 raised the State Board of Health Appropriation from $70,000 to $85,000. He blames that on the doctors, who may have had. some thing to do with it, but he neglects to say that Frank E. Barber was chairman of the committee which approved this increase. There were' not any doctors on the" committee, either. Had there been, the sum might have been still higher for the "gettin was good" in 1921. The Edward R.
