AVith the approach of election day, Nov. 7, Vcrmonters seem, to be arousing themselves somewhat from the lethargy that characterized the early stages of! nit- puuiicai campaign in tuis fciaie, yet except where there are local or sec tional lights there is no indication that the vote will be a heavy one. Of late, however, the question of government ex- j pense has been brought prominently to the fore as an issue, and it would not be surprising if in towns where there are representative contests quite a little of the normally Republican strength swung to the opposition. The Burlington Free Fress, one of the staunchest Republican papers in the state, says "if the Democrats ever had a chance to make a dent in the legisla ture they have it now" and continues that "it is generally admitted that the bnefits our people are receiving in dif ferent directions are by no means com mensurate with the jumping of state ex penditures from $4,000,000 to $0,000,000 annually." The Free Press admits that the majority are always much more likely to give 100 per cent service in the direction of economy and efficiency 'if they have a live and energetic minority to egg them on." and concludes that "there should be enough scraps over leg islative elections to prevent members from forgetting real issues are at stake for the taxpayers of Vermont." Real issues are at stake, without doubt, and they all center about the question of governmental extravagance. Figures brought oilt in the advertising connected with the Brattleboro repre sentative fight show that the legislature of 1121 granted increases to regular de partments amounting to $G01.G10 a year or $13)3.220 for the current biennial period. Bovine tuberculosis got, an in crease of $120,000 a year, the depart ment of education ?5G.000 -a year, the board of charities and probation $23, 000 a year, administration of justice $40,000 a year and so on down the line. The average voter and taxpayer not only feels that the state is not getting benefits commensurate with the increased expense these items represent, but he also feels that even if it were there is a very serious question whether the state can afford to spend so much. .What he wants to know is whether the next budget cannot be cut down at least by a million dollars so that he won't have to contribute $1 on every $100 of taxable property in the shape of a direct tax that never used to be necessary. This question is a live one in the small towns as well as the large and is likely to make itself felt indirectly even in places where there is but one candi date for representative. If it results in a program of real economy in the next legislature it will, have been well worth while. THE ENGLISH ELECTION. That is a curious election campaign that is going on in England. It is all rather perplexing to Americans. When we want to change an admin istration, wc hold an election first. Eng land first changes its administration and then holds the election. It amounts to a referendum to determine whether the new . "government' shall remain in power. The determining of that question is in itself a curious process. Hardly any "Every I ! - , -j body, even in England, seems to know exactly what the present campaign is about. The "ins," personified by Uonar Law, the new premier, are differentiated from the former government only by being honestly conservative whereas the old coalition government merely acted as if it were conservative. And now, with Lloyd George free to take what stand he pleases, there doesn't seem to be any clearly drawn issue at all. Bonar Law continues to praise Lloyd George and compliment the former ad ministration. Lloyd George, swashbuck ling around and announcing that "his sword is in his hand," can't find any enemy to impale on it. So far as anything definite can be ex pected from Premier Law's speeches,, his party program is to save Great Britain and the world by the conservative pro cess of doig nothing. And what the middle-of-the-road party that Lloyd George is trying to form would do if it got control of the government nobody knows. What it seems to amount to is simply that Gem-ral Discontent has won at last in England, as it has previously in va rious other countries since the armis tice. England wanted a change. Defin ite policies, suited to the new time and looking to the future, may be evolved later, there as elsewhere, when public opinion itself clears up. THE ENGINELESS BOAT. Following closely upon the engineless airplane comes the engineless boat, which goes the air glider one better in that it dispenses with sails as well as en gine and depends for its motive power upon a turbine driven by the wind. Three French engineers have been making experiments with this type of craft, and it is said that with the com pletion of a few details the boat will be an assured success. The connection be tween the wind-driven turbine and the screw has been contrived so cunningly that the boat not only will move before the breeze and tack yi the most ap proved style, but will sail directly into the wind. Great possibilities lie in such an in vention, and this is only a forerunner of many more developments in the con trol of natural forces. Man is just be ginning to master the elements. Sun shine, wind, water and the ether itself are full of potential energy whose se crets of light, power and heat man will master before long and subject to his every-day needs. Some day, not too far distant, he will throw away his present noisy, dirty, cumbersome machinery. Perhaps the former kaiser's bride will take much pride in the title he is to give ber Her Imperial Majesty, the Kaiserin, but it has little meaning to the outside world when bestowed by a crownlCss, thronelcss u:id powerless em peror. A baby born in New Bedford, Mass., the other day already had one tooth. What a lot of trouble would be saved if the stork would make an intensive study of efficiency and bring 'em all with a full set. Statesmen and experts are hard at it again, insisting that the way to avoid war is to be ready for it. That would be more convincing if they hadn't figured exactly the same way before the World war. A man up in Warren, Vt., was fined $30 this week for beating a horse so it Dog Has His Day But Me!!" had to be killed. Our idea in such a case would have been to accompany the fine with a little of the medicine he gave his horse. "According to many masters of mu sic," says a Chicago despatch, "jazz is on its last legs." But almost any in nocent onlooker will say that some of the legs are still pretty lively. Business men who know, the difficulty of collecting all their bills will have considerable respect for the New Jersey woman who left a dollar to pay for the gas she used for suicide. The Hartford Courant says the shav ing mug is coining back into popularity. If the mustache cup only comes with it, what helps they will be in deciding on pa's Christmas present ! , Headline: "Arctic regions getting ' too hot for the seals." Looks as though the seals would have to put on their sum mer furs. My kingdom for a Ford"! A Syracuse man signed his wife over by deed of bar ter to another man for a Ford touriir. car, one tire and a pump. Add. winter sports: German marks on the toboggan again. The Predatory Motorist. ' (St. Albans Messenger.) The predatory motorist, the one who makes a collection of fruit and vegetables and even chickens along the road, is a nuisance in almost every state. 1 His raids on farmers' orchards and gardens are not unknown here in Vermont. Down in Massachusetts there has been a big improvement since the s-tate police came into existence. There : have been only three such complaints in the whole state so far this year. The thiev ing motorist has learned that the com parative safety of old days has gone. He may encounter the state police and. get into trouble at any time. The rural regions are entitled to pro tection eoually with the municipalities. And in Massachusetts the farmers are supporting the state police because they have found real protection, from them. Perhaps the same thing would result in Vermont if we were to have a state con stabulary. And He Did! . ' ' Mill I j .

My Aunt Jane is passing wise, and her husband's love she holds, for tbe feeds him up with pies ere she lectures him or scolds. As a cook she s hard to beat, gorgeously her husband fares; it's a privilege to eat anything my aunt prepares. If she thinks it right to say things unpleasant to the ear, tshe won't speak while Uncle Jay is as hungry as a steer. For all hungry-men despise words of warning and advice, butwhen they are full of ptes they will listen once or twice. Wives by thousands every day on the path of error tread, throwing household peace away, jawing men who should be fed. Wlen my Uncle Jay has placed luscious victuals in his craw, my Aunt Jane, serene and chaste, tells him of a hat she saw. For that hat she makes a bid, saying, "Now, so help me John, I have worn my old bum lid till I blush to put it on. You can buy yourself cigars, you can play your billiard game, while my wornout bonnet jars every fibW in my frame"." Filled with pastry, Uncle Jay, heaves a wide, forgiving smile; '"Go and buy that hat today I would se my wife in stjle."
