I W HOME FOR STATE BOARD OF HEALTH KVH1 Soon Move. Together with Laboratory of Hygiene, from, a m rt i A A t 1 184 Church Street to 2 Col- Chester Avenue, Adjoining College of Medicine The State Board of Health Is to leave Its present home nt 184 Church Btrcot Boon and move Into the house (it 2 Col chester avenue Just cast of the College ' of Medlclno nnd now owned by the Uni versity of Vermont. This house was bought about the time the S. A. T. C. came Into existence and during the quarantine was used as barracks. A I different times during their stay here It alBo was used as a place of recreation, a, sort of club house, , Alterations on the house will begin this morning nnd as soon as they are completed the hoard will move In. Th outside of the house, except for a fov necessary alterations, will be unchanged as lt"!s considered desirable to spreservi (the architecture which has stood since Ihe house wu built In 1789. The Insldf " however, will be completely renovated When finished, the first floor will contain tho business office, the private office o th secretary, three small offices for uri cf the different departments and a large library and meeting room, t'pstnlrs wll he the business office, the olllce of tin director, laboratories for water nnalyslp bacteriological and pathological work, medico-legal work, the food and drug aboratory and the serological labora- I tory. In the rear of the house, which Is now a shed, will be a shipping room and a veterinary laboratory, and behind this will be a morgue for autopsy work. In order to fit the house for use as a (laboratory, It will be necessary to put iln new walls, nwfloors, a complete new 'heating system,. a new system of electric 'lighting', which will be Indirect through out the house, sufficient plumbing for laboratory purposes and general repairs. THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH The Vermont State Board of Health Is rather an old Institution. It was organ lied In 1886, after 14 years of. persistent trork with the Legislature. Dr. Henry D. Holton of Brattleboro was the orlg llnal promoter of the cause, and stories are still told nt Montpeiler of how Dr. Holton would appear at eaoh session of the' General Assembly to argue the need of & State Board of Health, only to be disappointed at the end of the session. As each bill was killed, he would re- tmark. "AH Tight, Gentlemen, that makes me a -member of the third House forthe next-.cession," and he would appear as Usual. In this work, he wan assisted lay Dr. L. C. Butler and Dr. Sumner Putnam. Finally, in 1886, when the act estab lishing A'Stato Board of Health became a law, the Governor appointed Dr. C. L. Alton, of -Rutland, Dr. A. S. Chesmore of Huntington and Dr. J. H. Hamilton of Itlchford as members, Dr. Allen being secretary to the board In 1890 and Dr. Holton In 1891. In the meantime. Dr. J. H. Hamilton had .-taken on the duties rof -secretary, which office he continued to hold until December. 1900, when Dr. Holton '"won elected as secretary and ex ecutive -officer of the board. During all this-time, the State. Board had no estab lished headquarters. Dr. Hamilton con ducted the duties of secretary in hlB Own offtoeiand when-Dr. Holton became secretary, ho established the offices of the board; in a email ell part In his house in Brattleboro. It waB not until Dr, Charles F. Dalton became secretary and executive officer of the board In 1912 that the entire organization was brought to gether at Burlington and established In (adequate quarters. LABORATORY OP HYGIENE The laboratory of hygiene was es tablished as a department of the State Hoard of Health by an act of the Leg Islature In 1898. Dr. J. H. Llnsley had previously conducted a small labora tory for chemical and bacteriological examinations but found that he could not do the work which the board de sired. A campaign was. therefore, carried on to arouse the Interest of Vermont citizens In the necessity for h laboratory in connection with the 'State Board of Health. Dr. Llnsley who hart tho hearty support of th Free Press from the very outset, made n thorough canvass of practically the whole State, during which time he used the first automobile ever brought into thefState. Part of tho time he was ac i companled by Dr. Caverly and their experiences with the new automobile were both amusing and exasperating. The object of the trip, however, was mccompllshed and the Legislature passed the act. Dr. Llnsley was appointed dl- . rector and quarters were secured in the IHayward block on Main street. The lab -atory was successful from th' livT-f : i from time to time, addi tions have I t. f i nnd- to Its work so that now It In omii of the "npnrtant institutions of the t.-.t. Dr. JI. J. Wlltse became director on the death of Dr. Llnsley In 1901 and in 1904 he "was succeeded by Dr. B. H. Stone, the present director. With the ex ception of a small State laboratory- in Rhode Island, Vermont was the first State In the Union to establish an organisation of this kind. ORGANIZATION UNITED The divided work of the State Board of Health by reason of the secretary's office being in Brattleboro and the laboratory In Darlington became more and more of a problem as the work of the board in creased. A change In the location of the laboratory became necessary in 1908 and the -temporary nostofflce buiidimr fcad been acquired by the Strong Hard ware company was secured nnd refitted for purpose of laboratory work. Dr. Dal ton became secretary of the board In 1912 and immediately fitted up offices In the same building, thus bringing the entire organisation together. Since that time. I the work of the State Board of Health has grown rapidly and acts have been passed 'by the present Legislature, which will 1 greatly increase the scope of the work. At present the board li composed of Dr. i F. Thomas Kidder of Woodstock, Dr. W. i , T. aiayton or Morrisvllle and Dr. C. F, Dalton of Burlington. THE BOARD'S NEW HOME The new home of the State Board of ' Health is said to be the oldest frame house in Burlington. It was built In 1789 by Fred Sax ton, when there were very few houses at tho head of Pearl street, The property has passed through many hands In the oourso of Its existence, hut tho rec ord of the first years of Its history are not very clearly defined .From 1MI, how ever, the records show plainly to whom It was sold. At that time It wiih owned by b, ana f, iiuoii. They sold It to Charles Caldwell In 1832 who lator sold It to Con elder Severance, who lived In the house until 184, when he sold It to Hsmuel Par one. Twelvo yean lator It went to Alvan Foote, who gave It to hie dauRhter, Mm, Anne L. Marsh. In 1800 O, H, Wood bought the houee from Charles Poole, who hod bought It from Mrs. Marsh, At thle time lit' Included CO acres. Four years lator It Jfcecamo the homo of L. C.

At this time North Prospect street was known as Goch Btreet and because there was a cemetery at the end of tho street the people said when a man died "He has gone up Goch Btreet." In 1872, L. C. Dodge sold the house to , H. Frcnoh with about three acres of land. Nine years lator It was sold again thlB time to A. W. Allen and tho land which went with the house had dwindled to 1 5-8ths acres. From then on, It changed hands several times until Anal ly it was ownod by Ellas Lyman, who sold It to tho University of Vermont. To have the laboratory of tho State Board of Health so near to tho College of medicine will be of mutual benefit to both Institutions, but especially to tho col lege, for the medical students will be near enough to know just what 1b dono at the laboratory and why; also, some of the facilities of the laboratory can be used for teaching purposes. H will bo of equal benefit to both, too, because of the fact that bo mnny of the men In tho laboratory are also Instructors In the college of medi cine.

DISTINCTION FOR T Miss Hanna Halonon of Wards boro First Creamery Butter maker and Manager in New England, if Not in the United Slates To a Vermont woman belongs the dis tinction of being tho first creamery but tcrmakcr nnd manager In Now England, .f not In the United States. This Is Miss 11 ilium Halonon, who has recently won a cup In tho Windham county creamery Im provement contest for having tho most at tractive creamery In tho county. There nre n lot of Interesting nnd out f the ordinary things connocted with 'lsf Hnlonon. She came from Finland in ' nV and did not know a word of English '.en she arrived. Previous to her de :irture, r!io had taken a course at one f tho Finnish government croamery licols and had a couple of years of sub sequent BUccossful'mnnagcment of a Fln i nh creamery. Upon her arrival In this otintry, she was constrained to work nt hotel until she became acquainted with e English language. In 1902 while work- in Massachusetts as a housekeeper learned, through a newspaper ndver mont, that tho Wnrdsboro, Vt., Cream nssnclation was In need of a compe it mannger, because they wero to -nngo from a milk station to a butter .. 'ailing croamery. Miss Halonon got .ifter this position as buttcrmaker nnd has held it ever since. DOES ALL THE CREAMERY WORK This crenmcry Is located In a small mountainous town In one of tho most beautiful sections of the State and its nv ercrage annual output Is about 40,000 poundB of butter. Miss Halonon does all tho work connected with tho creamery, from taking In the cream from the farm ers' wagon to the weighing, the sampling, testing, ripening and churning the cream, packing nnd printing the butter and send ing it to the market and scrubbing tho floors. HAS CLEANNESS BEAT ' According to a statement recently made by Mr. Mads Sondegaard of tho Federal Dairy Division, and he ought to know, because he has pernaps seen more creameries all over this country and Denmark than any other man, Miss Halonon has the cleanest creamery in the country. Ills statement Is substan tiated by a Boston party who recently made a visit to the place and when re turning one gentleman very aptly ex pressed, "That woman actually has cleanness beat!", for although she did not know we were coming, the floor In the boiler room was so clean and free from dust that a fellow would not soil a white handkerchief if he should try to use It for wiping the floor. Everyone else who has been fortunate enough to see the crenmery will say tho same thing. Miss Halonon herself, of course, Is clean also. She wears whtte caps and aprons, blue bloomers, and rubber boots when working, and as one gentleman expressed recently.' she docs work which many a man would call hard and difficult. UNIQUE ARRANGEMENT OF WORK ROOMS It is interesting, to say the least, to visit tho Wnrdsboro creamery. In one room Miss Halonon has combined re ceiving room, testing room, engine room, and parlor. In one corner she haw lino leum on the floor where she receives the cream, weighs and samples It. Ad jacent to Hint she has her desk and olllce room. In one corner of which her Bab cock tester is stationed. There sho has a wooden floor. In the noxt corner, the blank polished engine! protrudes on a cement floor nnd without the customary oil stains and greaso ordinarily associa ted with engines. In the fourth corner she has carpets spread over tho floor, and thih part she calls her parlor, which com prises it hook case, small organ, a violin, a few rocking chairs, center table, and sundry atftcles Including several pic tures, all artistically arranged. Any stranger Is welcomo and Invited to in spect tho various parts of the croamery, and, as previously said, they stand In spection. Another Interesting thing about tho creamery is hhut Miss Halonon never seqma rushed with work, no mat ter how much she has to do. The wood shed, the boiler room, the churn room, the cold storage all present the same im maculate appearance. The hutter pack ages are put up and arranged Just so and anything Hint clcnnllness nnd proper workmanship can do for tho creamery are not found wanting in Miss Holonon's crenmcry. DOES HER "BIT" While the Wnrdsboro creamery Is small, and located in a far and out of tho way place, Miss Halonon lots this be no obstacle for doing her best In regard to giving tho formers a good return for their raw products. The last few years sho has been experimenting Ith the making "f cottage cheese from tin t buttermilk. She haw been very suc- essful In producing a verv fino quality buttermilk cheese and has thereby een able to return tn tho farmers from $18.00 to $20.00 for amounts of buttermilk that otherwise would have netted them only $2. Besides this, she is doing her part for an Increased food supply, and is doing some missionary work in order to make buttermilk cheese the moro wide ly used part of tho diet. IS ACTIVE IN COMMUNITY AFFAIRS Besides attending to her creamery duties, Miss Halonon finds time to take a prominent part In the vlllago affairs. Sho Is the financial commltteo of the hurch and as such has raised tho funds for paying the minister's salary. Sho Is ecturcr of the Vermont grange, past lohlo grand of the Colfax Rebecca Evun I ho you may havi IneurunoQ nn ymip prnport)- iinrl your llfq It may not bo phouhU and III that ensa wa win advleo yrm of how much you really phoulr) vrry.

In addition to this, Bho does considerable roadlng and lectur ing for the Fintilah people In the neigh borhood, Sho has procured' a lantern and gives them Illustrated InlkH In re gard to conditions In their home land. WINS LOVING CUP Miss Halonon docs not confine her du ties to tho Insldo of tho creamery, but takes care that tho buildings nnd outsldo surroundings compare favorably with tho Insldo of the creamery. When npproach lug tho creamery In summer time, you aro agreeably surprised by finding tho driveway, tho lawns, and tho general surroundings of tho crenmcry kept up In first class condition. Flower beds, vines, and pot plants protrude from .everywhere and greet tho passershy, theroby making the appearance of tho creamery nil tho moro pleasing. Last yeaf the Brattleboro board of trade decided to do something for tho creamery Interest and offered a very handsomo loving cup to tho creamery wnicn was ablo to make tho greatest lm provement on mo Inside nnd outsldo ap- piuriuiLu 01 tno creamery. i Aiinougn tno Wardshoro creamery Is, practically speaking, "hung up" on the hillside, thus leaving only small space to do any work of benutlflcatlon, Miss Halonon with masterly hand made the best of tho edverso conditions and was ablo to gain the admiration of tho Judges nnd win the prize. In ordinary times, work of this nature Is very commendable, but In this present world s crisis, when the demand for man labor Is getting more urgent. It Is cer tainly nil tho more commendable that some women nre able to demonstrate their ability to step In In tho different lines of industry and carry on the work of some of those who have answered tho call to the colors.

CHASED BY DEER Grove' Street Mnn'a Unique Experi ence nt Break, of Day To be chased by a deer In the cold gray dawn of tho morning was tho ex perience Monday of Charles A. Klrby, who lives on Grovo street, and he at tributes the fact that ho was not seri ously Injured to his ftcctness of foot nnd excellent wind. Mr'. Klrby was awakened just at day break by the barking of hla dogs. Ho thought some marauder was about and went out lo Investigate. Tie searched tho barn and on finding no one, went out Into a lot nearby, where the dogs wero busy. Ho found they worn bothering a largo buck which was keeping them at a distance. Charles went a llttlo closer and swears the buck stared at him defiantly nnd then started for him. Mr. Kirby's attlro consisted mostly of a suit of overalls nnd thero wn3 llttlo to Im pede his progress. Ho turned on full speed and made the front door far In advanco of the deer, which Is supposed to havo a reputation us a sprinter. It was Mr. Kirby's Intention to get a hired man in the way of reinforcements and then venture out again as soon an he had recovered sufficient breath but to his horror nnd surprise, ho heard tho deer butting away nt the rear door. Ho could hear the horns Jab Into the wood. Mr. Klrby remained in tho house for quite a while and tho deer, presumably tired of hanging around, went away. LOCAL K. OF C.

UNITED STATES COURT Argument Made by Attorney In CiMe ngalnRt Piano Company The entire day in United States court Friday was occupied with the argu ments of the attorneys' before Judgo Harland B. Howo In tho claim of the National Piano company against the bankrupt estate of the Clark, MacMasters Piano company, who formerly conducted stores In Rutland, Montpeller and Clarc mont, N. H. The amount Involved Is about J10.000. It appeared from the arguments of Attorney Robert E. Healy of Benning ton, who appeared for the trustee of tho bankrupt estate, that The National 'lano company agreed to tako preferred stock In the Clark, MacMasters company n payment of the debt, and that tho stock was issued and tendered. Mean while the company went into bankruptcy and the stock became worthless, and the' National Piano people did not want it Other companies who mado tho samo agreement took their losses but tho Na tional Piano company, which has slnco gone Into bankrupt itBelf, has been flght- ng the case. In tho hearing before Thomas Brown, referee In bankruptcy, thoso claims wero all disallowed. There will probably be a number of other cases growing out of tho bankruptcy cases, as It is understood, that some banks In Vermont havo notes ngalnst tho company which are secured by mortgages on pianos, vlctrolas and other Instrument which the company sold on the Installment plan. M. C. Webber and P. M. Mcldon of Rutland were present, appearing foj some of tho creditors In tho estates and W. F. Frccdman of Boston for the Na tional Piano company.

Enlistments will he mado in the rating of apprentice seaman for yeoman, and the advancement will be as rapid as the man shows aptitude and ability. A person after information said the other day: "What Is a yeoman in, the navy and what do they do?" Yeomen are clerical workers and Piter the splen did training receive .,. the yeoman schools of the navy they become speclal-l ists In their line. These men are com potent to nil secretarial positions when, they have had the course of tralnlnn afforded In tho schools of the navy. Men enlisted at Burlington are sent to the school located at Newport, R. I. A knowledge of stenography will aid the applicant in promotion, but it Is not required for entrance. If ho Is a stcnog- i raphcr so much tho better; If not, h can join a class In stenography.
