DAIRYMEN ANO sucar mm Two Vermont Organizations in Annual Session in This City. (Continued from page me) breakage Implies a one-tlmo wholeness. ITIie triangle has never been completed In Vermont. It has always Iftckod ono Angle. Vermont appropriates twenty-one times s much for court expenses as she does In the Interests of agriculture and of forestry She appropriates nothing lo tho college of agriculture for agricultural purpose. The college does much In Ihnso lines, hut does It because, of na tional bounty, and not because of Sts.t appropriation. Thu national funds ari not ttvall.tblo for extension work. Intension, If It Is to be Inaugurated, must be. a matter of gtato Initiative. The Vernu.nl experiment station hss been eurrylnc on several lines of exten sion work In the past It has been forced to ahnnrton what little It hos done, owing to the now prevailing stricter construction of the national law under which It Is conducted. Such mnttcrs as the conduct I tie of Informational cor respondence, of field demonstration of Improved farm practices, of the giving of ndvlos an to farm, orehard, and factory operation, the making of farm surveys and orchard mirvcys, the conducting of co-operative field tests, variety trials and the llk, th Installation of reading rournas, the Issuance of Informational bulletins and the like: these and a multitude of other lines which a modern oxtenslon service carries on, the Ver mont station has In part tried to do In the past, but now hns abandoned. The "PaKe bill" contemplate" the estab lishment of a national oxtenslon sen-Ice. This, however, cannot be put Into opera tion 'until such time n the State Leglsl.1 ture has provided for the establishment nt tho 8tate University of a State exten lon Kervlce. The Legislatures of forts odd States have already done thU. It would be lamentable If In Senator Page's own State no action were taken In this matter. The State grange at Its annual meeting last month passed resolution favoring the establishment of intension service at the State university, and similar resolutions will be presented for adoption at tho dairymen's meeting. THE BOY ON THE FARM. The Women's auxiliary did not take Its expected part on the evening pro gram, and the place that Dr. Harvey VV. Wiley of Washington, the pure food expert, was to have filled was taken by Andrew Elliott of Oault, Ontario, a retired farmer and a widely known lecturer. I'r. Wiley Is scheduled to peak at tho banquet this nvenlpg. Following: a musical number by the orchestra. Miss Marlon Jordan render ed a flute solo, and at the close of the program there was another selec tion by the orchestra. Mr. Elliott made a hit with his aud ience. He discussed "The Boy on the Farm," with rare understanding of tha boy nature, and with full appreciation of the point of view of the fanl homesteader. "Keep the boy on the. farm by mak ing the farm attractive to him," said the speaker, Mr. Elliott urged thrft the boy or the girl on tho farm be en couraged to bring friends to his or her home, rather than bo drivan Away by hard and unsympathetic home In fluences. There were Idoae in his ad dress, and he was welcomed to the floor a second time, when In a sort of "postscript number one," ho said some, things in n flve-mlnute talk about the woman's part In tho affairs of to-day that not only entrenched him firmly In the estimation of the fomlnlne por tion of the audience, but drew the hearty applause, of the mon as wall.

Id Mention has pie- vlously bsen made of the plan of the republican minority of the House ways and means commlttre to Introiuce sub stitute far the roioid tarlff-fer-revenue bill of the detnocratlo majority of the committee, la the matter of the wool and other tariff schedules. Such bills would revise downward as far as possible aad at the same time pieterve the yrateetlre principle, and by tukltur such a stand all factions of the party might vslte en common around. eaator ram ewertlslly endorses such a proposition on the part of the Hou rapubllaanf, If they base their action on the report of the taiiff hoard report and In respect to most items f,a as far In the matter of downward revision ns a proper party resiard for the protective principle wilt admit. However, he sug gests the fact that three or four senators who yet retain the Republican party nams might vote with the democratic minority of the Senate, and thus the republlcuu measnro might fail of substitution In that body. All but three or four republicans of All shades of npinon In the Senate would vfry probably favor such .a re publican bill, but with only seven ns tho ostensible republican majority the de sertion of Xour would, send a democratic meaMife through. Of course this applies to ar.V political measure.
