Vt., says: 'Since I got Tanlac I have sained 30 pounds and am so well and strong that 1 feel just like new. For more than two years I had been in such bad way that I was discouraged. My stomach and di gestion had troubled me so Ions and so .severely that I never thought it possible to get Well. H I ventured to eat any substantial food it would take me a week to recover from the miserable affects of it. VI lost weight until I dropped down 2o pounds or more and pot so weak I couldn't even -walk down the street and took very little interest in anything. One day 'while having an awful time with my nerves and stomach I thought of what 1 had read and heard about Tanlac. So I began taking the medicine myself with the results already stated. Seven bot tles have put me in the best of health." Tanlac is sold by all druggists.

A man greatly interested in music deplores the fact that choral singing is not more popular in every community. An experienced musician and leader i ),;.cnif v.- i, . rv i .: : r 1 naii.ii, ur u.is uuvlvu ill? M"ivii;es irrf of charge in forming musical groups In any part of his city. The idea and ex ample will bear consideration by those who are pondering ways of bettering their communities. The choral society is the old-fashioned singing school brought up to date. More over, many of the modern organizations are finding their richest field in the same quaint or splendid melodies which de l'ghtcd the hearts and ears of their fore bears in the singing school. One such society, open to anyone who "an carry a tune, started a year ago with thirty, members. Today its mem bership numbers 120 and the organiza tion is acquiring fame beyond local bor !ers. me musician mentioned aoove. urg ing the formation of separate clubs and their meeting for unified or competitive work, well says: "It would seem as if the whole city, with all its races and different elements, rich and poor, would ha-ve one heart, and one voice to express itself." Truly a general revival of this old art should have a beneficial ef fect upon today's tinrest. WHY BONDS CO DOWN. Many people are puzzled by the drop in the value of government bonds,. after all the outstanding issues had risen to par or higher. There is no particular mystery about it. The government's credit is still good, but the government is very short of cash, and from all in dications i,s destined to continue short for some time to come. That situation is naturally reflected in the market price of government securities. Secretary Mellon stated the basic facts early last month, in connection with the ilotajion of the four and a quar ter per cent refunding issue. Including that issue, there were altogether Victors notes, treasury tax certificates and war savings certificates aggregating about ?...400.000,00() maturing before June 30, 102M. the end of the present fiscal year. All of, those obligations must be either paid or refunded. That throws the gov ernment into the market for vast sums of cash and credit, because there is no cash in the treasury to pay the maturing debts, and accordingly lower the price obtainable for government securities, old and new. Although we are near neighbors of Keene, X. II., how many of us know that a manufactory in that city furnishes large quantities of the "Christmas snow" for decorative purposes which we are all familiar with? The Keene Mica Products Co. will ship this year nearly 100.000 tons of it to various sections of the country. The "snow" is made from the waste pieces of mica which under goes certain processes until it takes on its frosty appearance. People who use anti-freezing liquid in the radiators of their automobiles should not forget that it, like gasoline, has a great affinity for lighted matches. A Montpelier man found this out the other day when he stood with a lighted match in hand by the radiator of his car, from which the cap had been taken. He is now waiting for facial burns to 1 mmmmmm - i ileal and for some new eyebrows and lashes as well as 'some hair to grow. According to scientists who have been making intensive experiments, the hu man brain is at its keenest in November and December. There should be a hint here for those who have problems to set tle or long to get ahead. They should improve this good thinking weather. Will nil those Dartmouth students who are to keep diaries for one week re cording the activities of each day in 15- minute periods, tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? The way husbands are being, killed off nowadays is enough to make any sensitive young man hesitate on the brink of matrimony. Lots of candidates promise the people what they want and when they are elected the people get what they deserve. Speaking of investments, the Better Stock movement is especially recom mended to farmers. Tomorrow is election bet pay day. Self-Appointed Representatives of the Farmers. Rutland Herald.) The Herald occasionally receives a let ter of protest against its )xsition on one thing or another, say on Greene's jiotash vote, the Muscle Shoals proposition or the eradication (?) of bovine tuberculosis. This is natural plough, and dissent merely means that the writers do not agree with us: it is when writers accuse The Herald of being "against the farm ers," for instance, that we take issue with them. One of them is as follows: "The Herald is privileged to oppose fanners' organizations and probably al ways will do as it has in the past, but it would be more becoming to state whole truths in support of its views." The Herald, of course, has not opposed farmers' organizations at any time: on the contrary, it has given probably more space to its local farm bureau and to the activities of other farmers' organizations than any other newspaper in the state. What it does oppose and will oppose is exploitation of farm bureau member ship by professional agitators or manipu lators, just as it opposed an attempt, not by the farm bureaus, but by a highly paid marketing agent, to squeeze the creameries out of the whole-milk market. It opposed and will oppose the plan of exploiting, not only the farmers but the taxpayers of the state, through the ex penditure of nearly a million dollars for bounties on dead cows. It opposed and will oppose the attempt of farm bureau organizations to get into politics, knowing full well that politics will kill the best farmers organization that ever existed. It opposed and will oppose the attempt of the farm bloc to break up party organ ization and take possession of congress. All this sort of thing is done, not by the farmer himself or even by a majority of farm organization memners. but by If aders, special agents and self-appointed spokesmen who speak without any au thority whatever except from little croups of one kind or another and who happen to have charge of things while the real farmer is going about his busi- ne: Labor is suffering now from this sort of thing: the farmer will suffer from it later. The Herald doe not recoenize Mr. Pattee or Mr. Cornwall or the Brigbam De Fosset T. B. machine as the author ized representatives of the Vermont farmer. Finally, it will oppose special privilege and minority rule, whether it is advo cated by farmers, union men, prohibition ists, preachers or politicians. The Her ald stands for all its readers, not a sec tional or minority group. A Dangerous Occupation. (Burlington Free Press.) Judging from the number of; men who have been shot, poisoned or otherwise ex terminated by women of late, being a husband must be added to the list of what the insurance people call "danger ous occupations."

Old Wilhelm's story of his reign proves what I've always said, that he, alone yas safe and sane, and sound in heart and head; all other men were born in vain, mere strips of gingerbread. On useful labors he was. bent throughout his long career, his mighty intellect was lent to studies he held dear, he did not give a punctured cent for warlike atmosphere.. He wished to build up German schools and see the churches grow, to watch the farm ers, with their tools, go forth to reap and sow; the thought of blood in crimson pools filled all his breast with woe. Judge, then, his majesty's sur prise, when war broke out one day; some insolent and meddling guys had shooed World Peace away ; they plotted war while Wilhelm's eyes were fixed on fields of hay. He had a pencil in his hand, and he was doing sums; how much, he figured, will this land produce when , harvest comes? And up there came an army band with martial fifes and drums. The war was on, and Wilhelm leaned against a fence and wept; the greatest blow since he was weaned -Mars labored while he slept ! The old world trembled and careened while he 'mid daisies stept ! Designing men of many lands, were plotting, in cahoot; and captains drilled bloodthirsty bonds to emulate the brute, while Wilhelm's white and saintly hands were toying with a flute!

New Voters, Attention. j (Barre Times.) The Fennington Banner calls atten tion to one thing Avhich may prove of value to new voters at the forthcoming election in Vermont, particularly to women voters who are voting for the first time. That is, that names of candidates for whom the voters wish to vote one for each office) must be marKed with a cross after the name and thar the names of other candidates must not be scratched out in any way. There may be ai idea in the minds of some new voters that ft is necessary to erase or obliterate the names of those for whom they do not wish to vote, which idea is wrong and Edward C. Foco.

Matthew Adams which, if followed out, would probably invalidate the ballot. So all voters should bear in mind that all they have to do is Ao mark a cross after the name of the candidate they wish to vote for, or if they wish to vote for the straight party ticket all they have to do is to make a cross at the space designated at the head of the party ticket. A good deal of con fusion of mind would be eliminated if the voters follow these simple instruc tions: Have nothing to do with the names you do not wish to vote for. A Decided Advantage.
