WELL HONK, VERMONTI In tlio krent Victory Liberty Loan drive Uui Grron Mountain State has won new glory. It not only exceeded its quota in tho number of bonds taken but It leads tho Union In tho proportion of towns that went "over tlio top" by taking far more bonds than wero neslgned to them. Out of 217 cities and towns in tho Stato no less than 131, or more than half, exceeded their quotas, many of them performing this feat In a drlvo of a single day. The example ot Colchester desorves special mention because Chairman E. B. "Wright of that town, owing to the bad condition of somo of tlio roads, visited many homes on foot, but under his leadership the Own oxeceded Its quota, State Chairman K. 15. Morse of Rutland and Chairman Warren 11. Austin, who had charge of the work In rhltlendon county aro to be con gratulated upon the splendid results achieved. THE GRAHAM AND HANLEY CASES Tho renders of tho Freo Press have wen In thesn columns the announcement of tho postponement of the trial in the Washington county court of the oases ngilnst former Governor Horace F. Gra ham and former State Purchasing Agent Hewry T. Hnnley. As the administration of Hornco Grnham recedes into the past iiml takes Its place in the list of notablo administrations of which our common wealth haa boasted, it is Impossible for ono to consider It without being Impress ed anew with tho pathetic features of this wholo situation. This Is particularly Iho caao when one compares the Graham administration with other recent admln I tratlons. It so commended itsolf to the pernio of the Stato as a whole that there Is a marked degree of sympathy for Gra ham even now, although we all realize that Justice must take its due course, despite tho fact that a high station may bo Involved. In this connection the Rut land News says: "It rcrfialns to be seen how tho post ponement until September of the crim inal cases against former Governor Hor aco F, Graham and former Purchasing Agent Dowcy T. Ilanley will be received by tho public at large. There cannot fail to be regret at .dllatorlness in bringing these cases Involving the Integrity and good nnmo of Vermont to; a speedy ls suo. Thoro may bo good and sufficient reason for the Inability of the attorney goneral to try these cases as scheduled. But ho has authority under State law to employ assistance, and It seems perfect ly natural that ex-Attorney-General H. O. Barber, who Is thoroughly familiar with tho cases by reason of his Investi gations, would bo natural prosecuting of ficer. The- people will be Impatient doubt less at tlio r.ctlon that has been taken. If the repo-i from Montpeller of the post ponements Js trustworthy." It will be recalled that thero was fric tion between tho old attorney-general and the now previous to the election In con nection with the assignment of State's Attorney Allen Martin, of Chittenden county, to tho handling of certain mat ters In Bennington county, This fact may explain the Innblllty of representatives ot tho Stato to get together. Thero havo also' beon marked evidences of sympathy jn tho part of men In high place with tho retired oxocutlvo. Whether It will be necessary to take this case outaldo of tho State In order to get a fair trial of the case by Jury rcmalnB to be seen. IIICnER EDUCATION HIGHER Even tho colleges nnd universities are beginning to reflect tho Influence ot tho lilfeh cost of living. Somo time ago Dart mouth and tho Massachusetts Institute of Technology found It necessary to so euro larger fees for tuition nnd now Yale Vnlvorslty announces nn enrly increase In its tuition fees. Thnt corporation haB voted to levy on all students onterlng next fall and thereafter a chargo of J210 a yoar. This represents an Increase of $10 In tho Rheinid Sclontlflc school and of $80 In the rollegn Itself, It Is specifically stated, howovcr, that every effort will be made to prevent any great hardship being Inflicted on poor and deserving students. Scholar ship aid will bo extended and the univer sity will co-operate with the bureau of appointments to provide larger opportun ities for self-support to those who need nt. Another important decision of the Yolo corporation has to do with faculty sala ries. In tho futuro no man with tho title of professor will recelvo lees than W.000 a year. There, (a no Intention of slighting tho men already paid more than 4,000, but action on their cases will not bo taken until It is undertcrmlned Just what their duties' aro under tho schemo of university reorganization soon to go Into effect. Tho pcoplo of Burlington and of Ver mont in genoral recall tho predicament In which tho University of Vermont was left, when tho war department suddenly announced tho discontinuance of tho war training started last Benson. Most of our Institutions of learning have war-legacies in tho shape of heavy deficits and there aro only scant prospects that the Immodl- nto futuro has in store any great finan cial relief. Because there havo been so many other calms upon men of means, gifts to colleges have been neither as fre quent nor ns large as In years past. In other words, endowment funds as a rule have stayed virtually stationary while ex penses havo mounted with leaps and bounds. It follows that if the cost of living in general has risen, the cost of operating and maintaining colleges and universities has also advanced materially. This is aa true of Vermont as of other States. The young pcoplo of Vermont are fortunate, however, owing to the faot that as yet tui tion In our institutions of higher educa tion is about where it was before the war began. WHY MEAT AM) MILK ARE DEAR In spite of constant repetition of rea sons why prices are high in different di rections, people are still saying among themselves, the high cost of living must como down. Even men and women who have Just struck for higher wages and helped to boost the cost of living in some particular direction, are trying to pull down the wages of others, by In sisting that the products of tho latter shall bo sold for less than at present. Tho world is rapidly learning that so long as the cost of the actual necessaries of life ore high wages must be high and the products of that labor high. When the farm Is able to make food cheaper, then we may expect lower cost of living and not before. We have shown that the ensuring of a high price of American wheat by the Wilson administration makes it ridiculous to look for cheaper bread this year or the next. Flour, potatoes, milk and meat are the absolute necessi ties of life for the different ages of hu man beings. We have only to look at'lo cal conditions to realize that meat and milk cannot be lower owing to the lack of home supply and the foreign demand. We in Burlington are paying In the vi cinity of $4.00 per 100 pounds for cereals. That means the farmer Is paying corre sponding sums for grain tor his dairy and for tho fattening of his beef and pork and fowls of different kinds. Farmers are paying from J30 to 135 for hay for their dairies, where they are short. Yet the price of dairy cows continues high. The Malone Telegram shows what con ditions ore prevailing In northern New York as follows: At nearly all of the farm auction sales which have been held In this vi cinity during the present month, dairy cows have sold at remarkably high prices, In one instance the average on the sala of a herd of upwards of twenty cows being over 1160 per head. At another re cent sale the average was $120. This Is another Indication of the great Improve ment In tho quality of dairy stock which has taken place in Franklin county In recent years. Cows which produce six ty pounds of milk per day aro not un common in the dairies of local farmers and some cows that have produced nine ty pounds per day in record testa are to day owned In Franklin county. While dairymen are paying from $100 to $160 for cows, from $3.50 to $4.00 for feed, from $30 up for hay, and from $40 to $60 n month and board for "hired men," more than double In most cases the prices of two years ago even, It is worse than fu tile to talk about the lower cost of liv ing. Until you are willing to take less for your work than you are now receiv ing it Is almost criminal for you to ask other wage-earners to come down In their wages. WHERE THE CIRCUIT-RIDER HAS RONE (From the Christian Herald) While the farming regions and the mines of Alaska attract a population that for the most part represents real settlers and not nomads, the fishing industry, which in 1317 amounted to more than $St00O,0O0, Is carried on by transient labor of a very low class. At the opening of the season droves of men of the most vicious and abandoned typo migrate northward. Because of the transiency of the fish ing villages and the tremendous dis tances between all Northern settle ments, missionaries have to play hide and Beek with an elusive population. Much of Its shifting, and much of It, including the native half-breds who havo suffered at the hands of the white man, is skeptical of all offers of service. The missionary In Alaska can't simply stake out a claim and camp on It. He has to be a traveling-salesman sort of preacher. His traveling equipment is a dog-team, or, If he is located on a navlgablo waterway and his mission Is prosperous, a gasoline launch. SHE MXDS HEnSEI-F MUCH BUTTER Lame back, rheumatic pains, stiffness nnd soreness In muscles and joints can be quickly relieved. Mrs. L.

HOTEL BLOCK BURNS The Frontier Hotel block at North Troy was destroyed by flro early Wed nesday April 23. Somo of tho contents were saved. Tho building was put up In 1872 and was owned by the widow of B. P. Gilbert. Mr. Gilbert was acci dentally burned to death by a gasoline explosion five years ago. A GREEN MOUNTAIN BOY Jenn Dubuc, tho pitcher, who Joined the Giants last week, and who was a twlrler for the Detroit Tigers for six years, was born In St. Johnsbury. He broke In as a right-hander with Holy Cross College In 1006. Tho following season he was with Notre Dame Unl- vrslty, whence, In 1008, he went to Cincinnati to begin his professional career. Dubuc also has pitched for St. Michael's College. WESLEYAN CONFERENCE OFFICERS Tho Rev. H. C.

EDITOR HAS A BIRTHDAY The employes at tho offlce of tho St. Johnsbury Republican recently entor talned Editor C. T. Walter at a flupper In observance of his liGth birthday an niversary. He was presented a birth day cake and flowers. Mr. Walter Is a graduate of Bates College, 1885. Tho Republican was established 35 years ago and he was its first editor. In 1888 Bates College conferred the do gree of master of arts upon him. Ho has always been a prominent republi can, was a member of tho republican State committee and secretary of civil and military affairs under Governor Bell. 00 YEARS AND HALE Mrs. Rosella Hlldre,th Conant quietly celebrated her 00th birthday anniver sary last' week In Windsor. She is In good health and bids fair to round out a century of life. She Is the only sur vivor of a group of 15 ladles of tho UnlversallBt Church In Felchvllle who contributed to the Murray fund In 1860. THIS AND THAT Mr. and Mrs. Solon T.

Mr. and Mrs. Harley Howland havo returned to Bethel from llorlda, hav ing made the Journey by motor in 10 days. The theatre in Barre's City Hall, dark for some time, may be re-opened as a former lessee, John E. Hoban, has mndo application. The Rev. E. D. Cornell has resigned the pastorate of tho Putney Baptist Church and has accepted a call to tho Baptist Church at West Brattleboro. THE CANDY RATION (From the IndlanapollB News) While hostilities were, In progress most of the American fighting men ate such food as they could get, and wero glad of the chance. That was especially true If they were In tho battle zones. When near enough to canteens or huts they could purchase chocolate and hard candy. but the supply was limited. Since the armistice was signed the wnr department scemB determined that every soldier re maining overseas shall have enough candy and perhaps somo extra to make up for lost time. Up to the time the armistice was signed 7,615,695 pounds of candy had been ship ped abroad. Since then the war dcpai t ment has placed orders for 2I,0(iO,O0A pounds "of the best candy made," and 12,000,000 pounds of that order already has been shipped. The greatest increase in candy shipments comes ns tho result of the introduction of a candy ration. This gives every man one-half pound of candy every 10 days. Thus 3,493,000 pounds of candy waij required to take care ot tho first allotment. Mrs. Gertrudo Athnrton, the writer protested against sending clinw Ing gum to France lest tho French people adopt the American habit, but tho war department sent .3,500,000 packages of gum as this month's ovcifceas shipment. Gum seems 'to be in greater demand during cold weather than In warm. Summer shipments only average about 1,500,000 packages monthly. Tho Increase in candy shipments should bring about a lessening of the demand for gum. THE WOULD CAPITAL. (From the Cleveland Plain Dealer) Geneva, the city chosen to bo- tho RAnt nf Ihn Twtiirrlln nt Mntlnim lu n French city In all but nnmo. The can- ton of Geneva Is almoBt surrounded J Every kind of a troo and shrub that will by French territory. The Geneveso niojgrow In the semi-tropical land Is to be of French blood and speak tho French I planted that nroner close-up atmosphere language. During tho great war tholr sympathies wero overwnolmlngly with France and Franco' allies. It Is fitting that a 'neutral nation hn. heen riven tho honor of l.eh.T hOBt to tho govornlng bodies of tho League of Nations. It Is also fitting that a city has been selected Which haa manifested nn ardent sympathy with the cause of democraoy. Brussels was passed over because Belgium was not neutral. Tho Hague was not chosen because of the divided sym pathies of the Dutch people. Geneva la an ideal selection and the fact that It Is one of the most beautiful of cities only serves to make more Impressive the fitness of tho choice, WORK OF VERMONT COW TESTING ASSOC I A TIONS Following Is a summary of 'the work of tho Vermont Cow Testing associations for the month of March, prepared for the benefit of the testers and the members of tho various associations and all others Interested in dairy improvement: SUMMARY OF TESTERS REPORTS FOI MARCH No. of Breed of No. Cows 40-Ub'. high Lbs.

MORE COMPLETE REPORTS RECEIVED The testers In tho various associations are cooperating In an excellent man ner with this department. Eight of tho twelve testers sent In complete reports of each herd In their respective associa tions for March. This makes It possible to ascertain tho highest herd average in each association as well as tho as sociation having tho highest average butterfat production. Comparisons of this sort as shown above are very val uable In many respects. Observation will show that six of the eight best pro ducing herds In tho cow testing asso ciations aro cither all or part purebred. This ought to set some of us thinking. Tho number of purebred bulls In tho as sociation is so small factor in production as will bo shown later. Look these tables over and compare them with your herd for last month. It may bo worth your time. ONE NEW ASSOCIATION During tho past month tho Northern White River Association began operation. Thirty dairymen owning about 435 cows In tho locality of Barnard, Bethel and Rochester, compose tho association. Law rence E. Hardy, who has recently been discharged from service, has been en gaged aa official tester. Mr. Hardy was formerly tester in the St. Johnsbury as sociation and his ability Bhould bo very valuable to the members. CONSTRUCTIVE TUBERCULOSIS LEGISLATION With the passage of House Bill 76 by the legislature on March 12 and signed by the governor on March 25, a thorough ly efficient measure to cradlcato bovine tuberculosis from cattle was put Into ef fect. Heretofore, cattle owners could receive indemnity from the stato for reacting cattle when slaughtered, after private tost, but were not under obligation to Bubmtt tho remainder of their herd for the tuberculin test. Under such a law the state treasury last year paid out over "HEARD ON THE STREET" (By a Whlto River Junction Landmark Man) That It is said there are some artists who can make as much as a houso i painter. I That the people who don't drlvo auto mobiles can still get kicked to death while milking tho cow. That President Wilson is wearing a plug hat in Paris. If he does that on this side he'll get taken for a circus agent. That it Is almost impossible to hire any work done about tho place, but it you want any jobs bossed you can get all the help you want. That some people deny that they never show any public spirit, as they run to all the fires and point out tho mistakes that the firemen make. That during tho war the soldiers learn ed to dig In, and already the neighbors chickens show they have mastered this element In military science. That the net result of the investiga tions of tho last Congress was that tho next Congress should take up these questions and do something about them. That these highbrows that favor tho Bolshevist movement should move to Russia where the Intellectuals are not fed until all other classes have had what they want. That Judging from tho way they run down pedestrians some motorists seem to regard them as good road-making material when properly crushed and rolled down. That after complaining because of the indlclslon the government showed In the war many people put oft the Liberty Loan solicitor three or four times before they can decide to take a $50 bond. That the four-hours-a-dny workers will probably go home and claim they are oppressed by tho boss who works eight hours at the offlce and spends eight hours more plnnnlng how to keep the business going. That clothing Is so ecarco In the Bal kans that many peoplo put on as outside CarmentB the pajamas sent from this country. That may throw light on tho reason why nctressos In this country aro so fond of wearing 'em. MOVIE NOTES Mrs. Sidney Drew Is to go right ahead making comedy films.

When tho test was conduct ed by an employe of tho State and fed eral departments of agriculture, acting Jointly, a -signed agreement was entered Into with tho owner for tho observance of certain uniform methods and rules for tuberculosis-free accredited herdB. Under this system, a small number of entire herds wero placed on tho "tuber-culosls-frce accredited list." The new measure provides In part that payment for reacting cattle will bo made, "provided the owner of the reacting cat tle and the owner or owners from whom such cattlo have within ninety days been bought, has tested his entire herd or herds within one year In accordance with the regulations prescribed by said commissioner under section five hundred, or provided tho owner or owners of such herd or herds from whom the cattle were bought shall agrco to test such entire herd or herds under said regula tions, in which case the claim shall not be paid until such entire herd or herds have been tested." This provision makes It clear that erad ication of tuberculosis is the main aim rather than insurance to thoso who formerly tested part of their herd only when required to do so when they wished to ship cattle out of the state. Since tuberculosis can bo transmitted to chil dren by feeding them unpasteurized milk from tubercular animals, we should safe guard our public health and submit our animals for a test, especially since an Indemnity la paid to the owner If the ani mal proves Infected. There are now 16 "accredited herds" (passed 2 annual or 3 semi-annual tests without reactors) In Vermont and 133 herds have passed one clean test. Thero are 348 herds now under supervision, 216 of which are purebred. With this foun dation and a constructive law In force, Vermont bids well to become a center of clean herds. Owners desiring to havo their herds tested should communicate with this department. H. E. BREMER, Agent in Dairying. SnoRT AND SHARP.

WHAT IS MAN f (From tho Electric Experimenter Maga zine) A man weighing 150 pounds wilt contain approximately 3,500 cubic feet of gas, oxygen, hydrogcA nnd nitrogen in his constitution, which at eighty cents per thousand cubic feet would bo worth J2.80 for Illuminating purposes. He also con tains all the necessary fats to make a 15-pound candle, and thus, together with his 3,500 cubic feet ot gases, he possesses considerable Illuminating possibilities. His system contains 22 pounds and ten ounces ot carbon, or enough to make 7S0 dozen, or 9,300 lead pencils. There are about fifty grains of Iron In his blood nnd tho rest of tho body would supply enough of this metal to make ono spike large enough to hold his weight. A healthy man contnlns 54 ounces of phosphorus. This deadly poison would make 800,000 matches, or enough poison to kill five hundred persons. This, with two ounces of lime, mnko the stiff bones and brains. No difference how sour a man looks, he contains about 60 lumps of sugarof the or dinary cubical dimensions and to make the seasoning complete, there aro 20 spoon fuls of salt. If a man wero distilled into water, he would make About 38 quarts, or more than half his entlro weight. He also contains a great deal of starch, chlorid of potash, magnesium, sulfur, and hydrochloric add In his wonderful human system. Break the shells of 1,000 eggs Into a huge pan or .basin, and you have the con tents to make a man from his toe-nails to the most delicate tissues of his brain. And this Is the sclentlflo answer to tho question, "What Is Man?" Thirty thousand depositors trust it with their savings Its million and a half of surplus all invested in United States Bonds, its careful yet progressive policy, its seventy years of stability, entirely justify that confidence.
