Should be Made Distinctively Agrlcul. tural In the Itest Sense by Furnish ing Prodnrtu That Cannot He Surpassed, Ambassador James Bryco of Great Britain, In a speech dcllverod In Burling ton on the 0th dny of July, 1900, at tho tercentenary celebration of the discovery of Lnke Champlaln and Vermont, said: "You men of northern Vermont nnd northern New Hampshire, living among Its rocks npd mountains in a region which may be called the Switzerland of America yon nrs the people here who have had hearts full of love of freedom which exists in mountain peoples, and who have tho Indomitable spirit and the tinconquer ahlo will which we always associate with the lake, and mountain lands of tho Alps nnd of Scotland." This phrase "the Switzerland of America" has stuck to Vermont since that utterance by Mr. Bryco and tho awakening of now life nnd enterprise In the State which has been apparent during tho past few years his been duo to some extent to tho placing before the people of larger communities ECtne of the great natural assets of Vermont. Probably no man Is better acquainted with the historical nnd statistical phases of Vermont than Is William S. ltossltcr, formerly expert special agent and chief clerk of tho United States census ofllco, whose statistical study of tho State was reviewed In some of the leading New Ens land nnd New York nowspapcrs In a, man ner not flattering to Vermont. These mis leading articles were subsequently chal lenged and the erroneous impressions they bad created were In some measure dis sipated Basing his questions on the sentiment expresf-ed by Ambassador Bryco, C. P. Cowles of this city recently put the fol lowing queries (In substance) to Mr. Rosslter: "Are not Vermont's men nnd women and her mountains, the State's two great est assets?" "Should not Vermont be considered the Switzerland and Scotlnnd of America?" Mr. Rosstter's reply to those questions Is Interesting because It comprises a tcrso summing up of the whole situation In Vermont. He begins by saying that ho does not believe ermont will ever be come an Industrial State and quickly ex presses a doubt whether it Is wise to press the Highlands and Swiss Idea too far. The Vermonter of tho future, ac cording to Mr. RosFlter, ought to be a mountaineer In the best sense, but ac tively engaged in making the cities pay him tribute keeping himself alert, sane and progressive. He warns against a ten dency in Vermont towards discouraging newcomers to tho State and suggests tho need of an organization to keep track of newcomers and lend them a hand. In his communication to Mr. Cowles, .lr. Rosslter says, in part; "We can, I think, both agree In hoping Vermont will never become an industrial State. As a matter of fact tnat means so much by what Is omitted that wo need not go much farther. I doubt, however, If It is wise to press the Highlands and Swiss Idea too far. Our conception of the Scotch Highlands nnd Switzerland is derived from what they stand for in his tory. During all the period that wo hear from them, tho men of both races wore nearly all hunters nnd warriors. These oc cupations, whatever their draw-backs, develop strength, daring, resourcefulness, energy, endurance nnd mental qulcknos. Theso qualities not only mean strong men and fine "human stock breeders, but a sort of automatic elimination of weak enlng vices. It was Just that sort of stock, the dwellers on tho slopes of tho Appen- nlnes, that conquered tho world tor Rome. As long as these racs had an objective which compelled mental and physical activity they were unsurpassed, but hunting and war have vanished in Europe, nnd Scotland's forlorn little Highland area is overrun by tourists In motors and trolloyB and tho settlements are suffering exactly as ours nro from decrease and deterioration, while Switzer land Is merely a tourist's paradlso in which the Inhabitants for tho most nnrt devote themselves to some form of serv ice maae profitable by the Immense tide of travel. "Our high-bred Anglo-Saxon stock must have a compelling, absorbing purpose, one that will create mental and physical strength. They cannot In our time In Vermont be hunters or warriors. To sit still and cultivate a little hillside farm Just to eko out a meagre existence didn't satisfy the yearning of our stock, and so In the early SCs they began to drift away nnd our present day problem had Its be ginning. In short, to our modern High lander If we would retain .ilm and keep him at highest efflclenoy, we must sup ply a strong, profitable, absorbing ob jective. TOe cannot find It a factory, and I think It would be equally unfortu nate to turn our people Into hotel keep ers, I mean making a business gener ally of living on tourists. It seems to me, however, that we can find the highest nnd finest objective by making the State distinctively agricultural in tho best sense, by opening markets, that is chan nels to markets, and by furntsntng prod ucts that cannot Ie surpassed. In 1830 there was practically no outslde-of-tho-fltate market even possible for Vermont food products. To-day In Now England and the mlddlo States slono neaily 14,. 000,000 people live In cities of more than 25,000 Inhabitants, practically every ono of which Is within 12 hours ride of St. Johnsbury. If tho Vermontera of 1830 had had such a chance, I doubt If thoy would have left the State. HILARITY AT SOCIAL. Amusing Stunt at Enlertntumrnt Given by Baptist Young People. Did you ever eat four dry cracaers and then utter tho words, "cock-a-doodle-do," like a rooster? Or as near llko a roostor ns you could with your throat filled with dry ernrker crumbs? This was one of tho stunta performed Tuesday night by somo of the young men who attended the social of tho Young People's society of the Bap tist Church, while the young ladles looked on and laughed. The smiling young lady who conducted the newspaper reporter to the class room In the church parlor where the program of stunts for the young men was displayed, explained that It was "Just for fun." A gentleman .representative from each class had to perform the feat given him and leave the young ladles to Judge bow well ha did It. Here are some of the comical things the boys had to do: Class yell, consisting of a different yell for arh class to be made up as trie per son doing Ihe yelling proceeded. Twenty feet dash, the "dashor" to carry gtaM rt itw la bit band and see If he could hop 20 feet without spilling n. drop.

Harrlsburg. Pa., May 7. In the small hall wheie the regular republican organi zation of Pennsylvania was overthrown last week, the regular democratic Stute organization was to-day swept nut of power by tho "reorganization" faction of tho party after a light of nearly two years. Tho victory of tho new men In control of tho parly's machinery was complete and no resistance was. made by tho regulars after the vote on permanent chairman of the State convention showed that the "teorganlrers" had control of the convention by 110 vote:) to 73. Tho party bad been spilt ior more than a jear nnd two State committees had been directing tho destinies of Pennsylvania's democ ra e.v . The "reorganize," under the leader ship of Georgo W.
