The housewife who tried boil every dish or to rrench-hund-heiu every dish tov.! would swn go mad. Fortunately, neither i necessary. A half-hour spent in fussing over the books because she fi-rgor the 32 cents spent on Christmas m-uIs is a half-hour wasted.

KiH'ii!!jj vj-c nints simply and as ac curate'y as possible, holding pretty close o the budget, saves much worry and heartache.

Savings are supposed to come out first, with the amount left over re garded as 100 per cent. - LAi;OI5 SPECLIAIZATION. . Savs Sceretary of Labor Davis: "The lesson of" tlM' past ye:;r seems to be not so much a problem of an actual dearth of employment but rather one of inability of American workmen to adjust them selves to changing circurustauces. We recognize that the exalted place of our craftsmen has been attained through specialization,. ' but in specializing we seem to have lost sight of the. fact that there are other lines of employment than thre habitually followed. I would be the last one to suggest that skilled work men should undertake te beomic so callcel Jacks of all trades, but I would urge upon every idle workman that when there is inactivity in his tftuls he use every -effort to adapt himself to some other line ef work. ! Manifestly the skilled workman can, if he will, do w"trk of sVme other kind; but my experience has lecii that too often when idleness is I 'lecd .upon him he rejects the thought f ether employment." That is sound advice, from u man v.lfo knows industry and knows labor. It is logically absurd for a workman to- as sume that when employment stops in his particular line, there is no more in the world. Often, there are good jubs right around him. And if the work of painters or coal miners "or any other group" is necessarily 'seasonal, the obvious remedy for regular periods of idleness is to develop some "avocation" to bridge the gr.p. Labor unions might profitably ex periment along this line. It is, however, a problem demanding the attemiou of employers as well as employes. The occupants of that Rutland auto mobile which skidded on a concrete high way, jumped a three-foot culvert, struck a tree, went through a wire fence into another tree and stopped right bide up in a pasture lio feet from the roadway with no one seriously injured, have good reason to believe that the age of miracles is still with us. Ho many St. Albans people are leaving for Florida next week that a t-pecia) car has been chartered for their transporta tion. Can't Ave get the. Floridians in terested in our winter sports?

Not The stage is all set for winter carni vals. Buying at Home. (Rutland Herald.) One of the almost threadbare slogans of boards of trade, chambers of commerce and boosters' clubs is "trade at home," but very few of them have denionstrateni exactly what trading at home really means. As an objectN lesson what such tradin? means, the editor of the Houston "(Texas) Post recently attached a sheet of linen paper to a dollar bill, wrote his name and address thereon with a request that all those should do likewise through whose hands the bill passed. The result was that 24 merchants in Houston reported the bill as passing through their cash in two days. While this stunt was possibly fctage managed a trifle, it is nevertheless sig nificant, and unit for unit of poulation and business, the same things happen every week in Rutland when the buying public spend their money at home feir such things as they need. The dollar sent to the mail order house never comes bae-k. It helps some other community a trifle, perhaps, but not so much as it ..would help the town from which it was sent. It pays no help, buys no produce, consumes no "juice." sup ports no families, helps no churches or schools, contributes nothing to taxes, trade or education after it leaves your home town. Stating it in terms of the Houston ex-! periment. even if the dollar sent to the mail order house saved the sender an other dollar whieh it docs. not the ra tio of benefit would still !e 12 to one in favor tf spending the dedlar at home. Even if some price saving were af fected by "sending away"' for attractively advertised goods, the actual benefits are small, negligible, in fact, when e'ompared with the advantage the home-spent dol lar brings with it. Buying at home pays in the broadest, most .public-spirited community sense. i An Effective "Dry" Agency. (Bane Times.) The most effective "dry" enforcement agent is now stationed em the Vermont Canada line. It's a exmsiderable depth of snow. A little girl in southern California was having her first glimpse of snow. "Oh, mother,, what is it what is it?" she shouteel excitedly. 'Why, that is snow, Peggy. What ever did you think it was?" "Snow ! Why, it looks like popped i rain!"
