A well-known Itepublican business j man (who predicted the election of the I local Renubliean renresont.itii'ol mol I tins significant remark in the course of ' conversation night before last : "Any member, of the last ' legfsla ! tnre who attempts to defend the , record of that body is up against an i almost impossible proposition." i Tin outcome of yesterday's represent ative fight in Urattleboro proved the truth of this statement beyond all shadow of dispute. It was that record more than anything else that was re sponsible for Mr. Iiarber's defeat. And tin- lesson should be thoughtfully con sidered by every man. regardless of party, who was chosen yesterday to serve in the next legislature. Vermont ers are in earnest in their de sire to get relief from the overburdening taxes which became necessary to meet the expenditures authorized by the gen eral assembly of 11)21. Thev are in no mood to tolerate excuses; they want definite results. And if the next legis lature does "not produce them the politi cal upheaval that will come about in 1!'24 is likely to make yesterday's re sult look like nothing at all. ElVINti WAGE IN DETROIT. To the majority of the railway labor board, the "living wage" idea is an ab straction and an absurdity, according to a recent statement. To Edsel Ford, head of the Ford Motor Co. and one of the biggest employers of labor in the country, it is a definite, practical and commendable thing. And in view of the success the Ford family has had in a highly competitive business, possibly the yourg man knows what he is talking about. According to the Ford idea, every workman ought to own his own home and have "a garden and a bank account and be able to give his children a good education, and in order to accomplish this he ought to have a wage of not less than ?." a day. The city of Detroit seems to agree. On Nov. 1 a' minimum wage of .$. for an eight-hour day went into effect on one of the municipal street railway lines, with a view to extending it to all the other lines if it succeeds. Most people, whether theoretical ex perts or actual employers, will hardly put the minimum so high as this. Yet it is surprising how many people not on the railway labor board believe that it is possible to fix a wage minimum to in sure decent living according to American standards, and that employers should recognize such a minimum when it is established and would profit by doing so in the end. TIMBER IS A CROP. Timber used to be regarded as a "nat ural resource." Thus it was classified with coal, oil and ore supplied by nature to be drawn upon by man until ex hausted. That view was largely re sponsible for the rapid depletion of for ests. Now there is a wholly different view. j well-expressed by Secretary Wallace in a recent address. Timber is a "resource" I rTTrT Mir--"J"'"" ' - mmia. -mmmm i , . . only in the sense that wheat or corn or cotton is a resource. "Timber is a crop ; one of our most important crops. It grows, ripens and becomes ready for the harvest, just as other agricultural crops do. It should be harvested in season and another crop grown for the use of future generations." As for the methods of crop cultiva tion: "It must be protected from fires, from plant diseases, from insect pests, just as other agricultural crops are pro tected. That requires the services of the horticulturist, of the entomologist. (if the plant pathologist "and" of the for est specialist, all of these men being trained in their own lines, working to gether with the closest co-operation." Let this "crop" idea once find firm ledgment in the public mind, and there will be no further difficulty about our timber supply. Already the state highway commis sion of Maine has decided to bar heavy trucks from the state highways after the middle of November, and truckmen have been given notice that their heavy work should be done before that time. In reference to Maine's decision the Keene Sentinel says: "There is usually a con siderable winter interval during which roadbeds are so frozen as to be beyond injury from trucks, if the latter can ne gotiate the snow and ice. A reasonable provision for the use of state roads while such conditions prevail might well be made optional, it would seem, with division highway engineers nnd select men. But it is well to have the gun loaded all winter to stop immediately wanton road destruction by those who don't care." A Sharon, Vt., motorist has had his license suspended foY 30 days, after hav ing been in a smash when he failed to negotiate a curve properly. He was do ing what any driver should know bet ter than to try driving his car with three people on the seat with him. He claimed he did not have free movement of his arms. Naturally, four people on the driver's scat would cause a scarcity of elbow room. That Ki-year-old boy up in Plymouth who shot a 102-pound bear on Shrews bury mountain recently has a right to be a little chesty with the other fellows if he feels like it.

Misfortunes hit me unawares and made my spirit groan the way my gouty father swears would rend a heart of stone, my aunt fell down the cellar stairs and bnke her collarbone.
