If you are in nerd of a now roof foi',- your house, barn block or factory, and have never seen Paroid in use, you can have no idea how strong and durable it is, and you had better investigate it. There are hundreds of imita tions of Paroid. None are as smooth, tough, or as dur able as Paroid. You buy a cheap roofing, in a few years it is gone, and you must buy another. If you had paid a little moro nnd bought Paroid, it would have lasted and at only one cost. Sand for samples. Hagar Brothers BURLINGTON. WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAY Large Amount of Cimh Distributed An. Dually liy Insurance Companies. (From tho Rutland Nows.) i'erhaps few people appreciate the large amount of cash In the aggregate dis tributed annually throughout thin State by the life Insurance companies. Of tho total amount paid In 1904 In the United States and Canada, :;71 ,42.577, Vermont re ceived $1,KB,:0. This docs not Include n large amount distributed by fraternal or assessment societies. It Is of Interest to nolc where In tho course of a year this Immense stun of moi.cy found Its way for distribution. Of the amount paid lit Vermont, Urnttlc- boro received the largest, J9I.5S7. Rutland followed with jS'.fKt. while Burlington was third with m;.0!I. In Bennington there was $M,C"i0 p.ild. In other towns In this part of tho state the following amounts were rcceh'cd: Brldgewater, JJ.trtO; Bristol, $5,750; Ches ter, $1,3.11'; Dorset.

Vermont towns In which other large minimis were apportioned were; Barro, $i:'.O50; Mont poller, J53.079; North Benning ton. $11,544; Randolph, JIS.1SI; St. Albans, $tiS,."i06! St. Johnsbury, o0,203; Waterbury, $1S.0,V- Windsor, $2H,1S2! WlnoosUI, MO.S.IO. There was Industrial insurance paid ag gregating $1P,2C.0. while the unclassltlcd In surance amounted to $!)0,u0n. the largest Individual payment was on tho life of Alonzo B. Valentino of Ben nington, JI.'.f.TS. There were three other payments of between $10,0M) und $1R,0(0. From these figures It Is apparent that Vermont people are u provident and well Insured class. It Is hard to over-estimate the value or life insurance to the family of any man when he Is removed by death. Often it keeps the widow and her dependents from positive want; it furnishes ready cash witn which to meet pressing obligation and thus to preserve intact whatever estate is left without wasteful sacrificing In order to realize. There Is no man, in however moderate circumstances, who cannot af ford to put at IcaM a small portion of his earnings to this purpose. HIGHEST COt'BT HKLPLKSS. (From the Bennington Banner.) Many people fall to understand why this latest lease of life for Mary Hogers came as a reprlve lrom the governor Instead of a May of execution granted by thu su preme court. The rc.-n.nns are these. Ordinarily when a person is convicted of murder In Vermont exceptions are taken and the case Is carried to supreme court and tho death sentence if Dually pro nounced Is pronounced by supremo court. Then If there Is to he n stay of execution tlie supreme court merely revises Its own action in granting further delay. The Mary Rogers case was different. No exceptions were taken In county court or at least none wi ru hied on which tho case could bo passed to the higher court. Consequently the death sentence was pronounced by Judge: Watson In tho county court at Bennington and not by the supreme court at Montpeller. Accord-' Iiir to federal statute when an appeal Is tukeu to a higher court, as tlic supremo court of the United States, in a capital case, a stay of execution shall be granted by the court which pronounced sentence. When the question of appeal to the federal supreme court was considered in the case of Mary Reisers at Montpeller Tuesday evening. Chief Rowell and his nssoclates held that Inasmuch as the Su preme Court of veimont nnd not pro nounred sentence on the condemned wo- wan, that court had no Jurisdiction to grant a stay of execution. Tho court of sentence, that is the December. !J3, term of Rennlngton county court had passed out of existence more than a year ago. Judge Rowell concluded that no court nad the authority to Intervene to savo Mrs. Rogers's life. (Sovernor Hell was hurriedly summoned to Montpeller, arriv ing early Wednesday morning and, at the ir(uest of tbei r.upteme court, the gover nor used the authority conferred on lilm by the constitution of the State and re prieved tho condemned murderess until her attorneys have time to act. It was a peculiar situation and Gover nor Hell could not do less than act ac cording to the advice of the highest State court. SWINDLING SCHEMES. (From tho llarton Monitor.) Too much cannot be said against wild cat schemes. There is probably no town in the State of Vermont that has not suffered from mining swindles, lottery offeis or something of the kind. Tho llardwkk Ganette says that a certain promoter of a swindle made the following remark: "I can sell tho American people chunks of blue sky, and have them chas ing after mo fur the privilege of buying It." I low often our own Stnto and town products and Institutions go undeveloped for lack of llnanelal support, while people buy "blue sky" and expert to build castles with it later, but In nine cases out of ten the ensiles are nothing but iilr. CEMENT CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION. (From the St. Johnsbury Caledonian.) A great deal of building Is now going on in this country nnd In Europe, using a mixture of ecmeni, sharp sand nnd broken stone. A mill has been built the past winter at IVtIIii Falls, N. II , of this cement concrete, or Dltnr, as French peo ple call It, when the ttmperatuie averaged in degrees below zero; the water and sand being heated. A mass of concrete SS feet sipiare nnd SO feet thick has been built In New York us .1 foundation for a chimney, over flW leci iiign. 111 ureal 1 niuu nia- llnn In Washington, D. C Is being con structed of this material. The people of this part of Vermont will be Interested in the progress In construction of a largo building built of cement concrete In a neighboring village. I.AKII FOR THE WIFE HEATER. (From the Monisvlllo News nnd Citizen.) Delaware maintains the whipping port nnd has stated seasons when tho lash Is well In Id on the backs of convicted cul prits. The institution has been criticised on humanitarian grounds, and as not In keeping with 20th century methods of punishment, hut no Inclination to give It up Is shown by tho people of Delaware, Their example has been followed by Oregon, which State, however, limits the punishment to the crime or wire-ocating. The whipping post law, which waH passed by the Legislature of Oregon last Jan uary, went Into effect last week. It pro vldes that a man convicted of wlfe-beat-Ing may be punished with whipping, not exceeding 20 lashes. This, however, Is not exclusive penalty. The old punishment by line or Imprisonment is still In effect un der the new law. According to tho now law the whipping Is conducted within tho walls of tho county or city Jail, und tho lash Is wield ed by the sheriff, of the county or a regu- BEST OF SEPARATORS ACTUALLY FREE OF COST.

Such machines quickly lose their cost instead of saving it, and then go oit losing instead of saving.

A Mg flock of Angora gn.us Is to ho turned loose in Hrandon and the experi- ment of raisins tliem will be watched with Interest. Tho Ancora, is moro valuable than sheep or ordinary poatr in clearing land from bushes. It prefers browse ti Kood pasturage that cattle desire and it tee ds so closely that It clears the land of bushes and makes a place for Rias to trrow. Tho wool or fur of the Atujor.i is much different from ordinary fronts' wool and is more valuable, belntt used in the manufacture of plush. The flesh Is ex eellent for food nnd If of pood eiunllty can hardly be distinpulsheel from venison. The department of agriculture has issued somo publications advising the culture of tho Ancora for some purposes but there havo been few flocks In this part of tho coun try. There are a few plush mills In tho country, but the supply of Angora went Is not sufficient for their demand, so mot of it Is Imported and there is no well set tled market for It at present. It will prob ably he necessary also to overcome somo prejudice before a good market can bo established for the meat. Some Western growers have found Angoras profltablo and they may bo made so In tho Enst. HOW VICTORY WAS WON. .Inimnesf Story of nattlc Russian Went Into Action with Thirty-tno Vessels. Toklo. May 31. A Japanese officer who has returned gives the following account of the sea fight off the Tsu Islands: At f.vM o'clock Saturday morning a wireless message reading, "The enemy's squadron Is in sight," reached tho naval Ki'c. This message wns transmitted to all nur ships by the flngshlp, w'th in stitutions to get ready for action. Our Mlt'i'dron left their rendezvous and head ed for the eastern channel off Tsushima.

These Japanese consisted of four battleships and the armored cruisers Toklwa, Nlsshln, Knsuga. Iwatn ami Irizumn. They Immediacy opened a heavy fire which was especially directed ngalnst the flagships of the various squadrons of the Russian fleet. Admiral Rojestvensky signalled to the squadron to the transports to place themselves on the right of the squadron of light cruisers, so as to increase their distance from the fighting portion of the fleet, which was now hotly engaged and suffering under the well aimed tire of the Japanese. "As a result of the precision of the Jnpanee gunners and the concentration of their fire on the flagships, within an hour and 11 half the Kniaz Souvnroff and the Oslabya were reduced to wrecks and soon sank. Almost at the same time ns the opening of the engagement between the battleship divisions a column of light Japanese cruisers appeared from he eastward and fell upon the retlrlnit Russian transports and the light cruis ers. Tho cruisers Vladimir Monomach and Dmitrldonskol were detached from the left column and sent to their aid. They were repulsed by the Japanese cruisers, but not before the L'ral had been brought to a sinking condition. ALEXANDER til SL'NK. The battlo continued until five o'clock. Thereafter tho battleships Alexander III began to list badly and dropped nut of the line, but was quick ly repaired, resuming her place and re opening fire. The battleship Borodino was then heading the line. The Japan ese noticing the condition of the Alex ander III, concentrated their tire upon her and sho again dropped out of tho line, this time finally and disappear ed. Such a heavy fire from the Japanese 12-lnch guns was then directed against the Borodino that she was disabled nnd sank. This was at 7:30 o'clock In the evening. TORFEDO BOATS DID THE REST. The battleship Slssol Veliky was now ablaze but was firing every n unable gun. At this hour the onslaught of tor pedo boats from the coast of Japan nnd tho closing In of the battleships from tho left broke up the Russian fleet, all of which, except four battleships and tho converted cruiser l'ral were still holding together. During the night the Japanese torpedo attacks continued, the result of which was not known hero until the teport of the commander of the cruiser Izumrud was received from Vladimir bay. During th. battle a mass of Japrtne.-o Junks is said to have obstructed tho movements of the Russian fleet.
