When President Wnson returns this month from putting up now fences and overturning the- soil of the European garden-plots, he may-find, that his own spring gardening has been somewhat neglected during his absence, and that numorous weeds will havo to bo pulled and tho ground tilled to a considerable extent be fore tho particular brand of Wilsonlan peed will bear fruit In the American soil. With Germany's submarines gone, her navy reduced to a mere toy fleet, her army cut down to practically one per cent, of what It was during the war, her colo nies taken from her, Alsace and Lorraine, with their niilno bridges, In the hands of the French, the Kiel cnnal open to all nations, many German forts on tho fron tier razed, and a tremendous debt on her shoulders, tho proud people of the Rhine land can hardly continue tho singing of the onco popular "Dcutschland uber nlles." And yet, the change must come from within lo be really affective. Tou may wlpo off the fac m' mt (.vtrth the land that is called Germany and relegate its people to a desert Island. If you havo not changed the heart of the people, if they are not penitent for their misdeeds, the germ of the evil Idea Is still there, and It is tho Idea that is to blame for all the trobule. GERMANY ASB TTIF7 LKAGCE OP NA TIONS One of the developments that has come In the nature of a surprise in con nection with tho peace negotiations Is tho demand of Germany that she bo in cluded in the .League of Nations. Wo confess that, if we had started out to persuado the nations of the earth to Join in a movement for a general agree ment not to engage in war, we would have thought of the Inclusion of Ger many, an one of the chief goals of such a project. Whatever we may say about the pros pects or probabilities or even possibili ties of the. future, we must admit in our hearts that if there Is to be another war, we feel that It will come from German dissatisfaction with tho terms Imposed by the allies and America. If Germany is willing to he bound by such an agree ment as has. been outlined In the cov enant of the League of Nations, then we would figure the consummation as so much clpar gain for the future peace of the world. As regards membership in the league, after including the signatories and othpr States Invited to accede, the second sec tion of the covenant provides that "a new State, dominion or colony may be admitted provided Its admission Is agreed to by two-thlrds of the assembly." The suggestion has been made that, if Germany and Russia and Japan are forced to remain outside of tho league, we (.hall be in danger of seeing a rival league formed. In such an event wo would havo two great rival alliances, with a struggle for the balanco of power of tho whole world as before, and the prae tlcal certainty that sooner or later there would bo another war between those rival combinations of powers. In this connection the New York AVorld says: "Germany's demand that she should be Included In the League of Nations Is just and should he heeded. If excluded at all It should bn only until such time as may be necessary for hpr to establish a stable government, with assurance of carrying out ln-good faith the conditions Imposed upon hor by the treaty of peare. The pro visions of the League of Nations should also clearly Indicate that Russia shall bo a member when It also gives proof of stability In government and a willing ness to abide by the conditions of the league. With both Oermany and Rus sia excluded it requires no prophetic vl slon to see that they will find or make common cause for another and opposing league that probably In less than a de cade will again plunge the world Into war." One would naturally suppose France would profit from Its own experience In connection with the rape of A'.sace-Lor mine In 1971, but some of Its demands now are well calculated to force Ger many to another war of revengo late on. If all the great nations can be drawn Into tho League of Nations now, It should be done by nil means. discussion will not be out of place this off year. Wo would suggest one change that would bo a wlso one to make. For Illustration, Chittenden county has four senators; divide tho county Into district, allowing eight representatives, Instead of ono from each town. The tunc rule to apply to tho other counties. This would make a Senate of thirty and a House of sixty members, a total of ninety members, Instead of 277 as at present. The present House Is too large to ac complish good results. It might, In truth, bo styled an cxpcnslvo luxury. We fa vor a flat sum as salary: say $400 and no limit as lo length of session. "The cost of our Legislatures has been tho subject of much discussion. Change tho constitution so cis to reduco tlje membership of ,tho Houso to sixty, tho State would save, baaed on tho present pay of legislators, 1748 each day. Docs tho expenditure of that sum secure the enactment of laws that arc worth the price? Is It not possible for sixty men to make Just ait good laws as 247 would? We believe sixty men would do better work and In loss time. The money saved could bo. used to advantage In helping build better highways or In securing un iform text books for our schools. It a law for that much-needed reform could be enacted. The matter of changing Ver mont's constitution to comply with tho suggestions hero made is worthy of care ful consideration by the taxpayers." An argument In support of tho present representation of one member from each town In the House, that has not been brought out In this discussion Is tho fact that the full representation of all our rural communities counts for safety against socialism and Bolshevism and all that sort of thing. Tho large centers or population In the United States havo shown themselves to be tho hotbeds of the I. W. W. and kindred movements. In a rural State like Vermont wo have heard nothing of this sort of thing. If It were to develop In connection with large Industries like those of Rutland and Burlington and Barre, the rural commu nities represented In the Legislature would soon take the legislative axe and "knock the stuffing" out of any such for eign excresence. Whatever one may think about legislative economy and all that, we find a gratifying sense of se curity In tho knowledge that the Ver mont Legislature as It now stands will always be close to the people of the State asva whole and never be dominated by hotbeds of socialism. HISTORIC FIUME Every Great War Has Changed Ruler of This Place Description of City Tn-dny Forty Mile from Itnllnn Irrcdcnte, but Culture I Unllnn since Vcne tlnn Supremacy VERMONT'S NEW JUDGE Representative F. L. WebBter, of Swan ton, having declined the appointment of superior Judge made by Governor Clem ent, as a result of the various changes on the bench following the resignation, as already announced, appointed the Hon. H. B. Chase of Brattlcboro to tho va- cancy. In this connection the Brattleboro Reformer says: "The Reformer extends Its congratula tions to Judge Harrle B. Chase and wishes him a long and successful career on the Vermont bench. To be appointed superior Judge at the age of 29 Is an honor of which Mr. Chase has every reason to be ex. tremely proud, and It Is a credit to Gover nor Clement that he has given the office to a man with the best years of his life ahead instead of to one on the verge of re tirement. Friends of Judge Chase have no doubt as to his ability; as tn his youth nd lack of experience, those are things that can be outgrown. 'Judge Chase was born In Whltlngham n 1889. Ho was educated in the public schools of Whltlngham and Wilmington high school. After graduation from Phil Ips Bxetcr Academy ho attended Dart' mouth College and later graduated from tho Boston University Law school. Judge Chase was admitted to the bar In 1912. In that same year he married Mss Mina A. Gllman and they have three children. He as been actively engaged in the practice law In partnership with Charles S. Chase of Brattlcboro and has been town grand Juror. Tho announcement that some men prefer private practice to elevation to the bench Vermont, shows that conditions hero are not wholly unlike those prevailing tn. New York whero Justice Shearn has Just resigned to resume a lucratlvo practice. Our Vermont judges are far from being overpaid, and if present conditions con tinue, we may yet have to revise our judicial salaries upward. Flume, tho beautiful Adriatic seaport, which Is picturesquely Bltuated at tho northeast end of tho Bay of Quarncro, in tho present struggle now raging for Its possession will probably find only ono more chapter added to a history which has been repleto with them. Since Its founding ns the Byzantine town Tersa tlca, throughout Its existence as the Hellenistic Vltopolls, even through Its dnyfl ns the Christian city of F.mum Sanctl Vltl ad Flumcn, from which Itn present name Is derived, Flume has hud a troublous history. It has been perilous to bo thcTmturnl outlet on the sea to half a dozen ambitious countries. First recorded among Its conquerors Is Charlemagne, who seized It, sacked It, and turned It over to tho Franks In 7U9. it was lator held In feudal tenure from tho patriarch of Aqullela by tho Bishop of Pola In 1139. and then by tho Counts of Dutno. After a few moro passings to and fro between medltcval lords, it was Incorporated with the dominions of the Houso of Austria by the Emperor Frederick III In 1471. It became a free port under Charles VI, and Maria Theresa In 1776 united In with .Croatia. of which It Is geographically a part, Three years later It became a corpus separatum of tho Hungarian crown Frenchmen occupied It during the cam. nalcns of Nurjoleon In 1S09, but tho British took it in 1S13, and Austria pre sently recolved it back. Hungary had It again by 1822, and for a brief period It becamo part of the crown lands of Croatia. In 1S70 It came finally under Hungarian control. Despite Its precarious and checkered career. Flume has had time to grow beautiful. The older part of the city Is built on a hill, with crooked, narrow streets, and the more modem city stretch es along tho shore, with broad streets. wide public gardens, and Interesting buildings. Its conquerors havo left their memorials In architecture. There Is a Roman triumphal arch, supposed to have been erected by tho Emperor Claudius Gothlcus; there Is tho famous cathedral founded In 1377, resembling tho Pantheon; iho Church of St. Vitas Is a copy of Santa Maria dclla Salute at Venice; the Pilgrimage Church Is approached by stairway of 400 steps. Its moro modern buildings, the Naval Academy, govern ment edifices, nnd municipal theatre. are also beautiful. Tho total population of tho city from the last census (1900) shows that It in cludes 38,955 persons. Italians prcdomi nate. numbering 17,354. Thcro are 14.SS5 Slavs, 2,482 Hungarians, nnd 1,945 Ger mans. The city covers about eight square miles, and the population to-day Is estimated as sixty thousand. Flume has several hnrbors, the larg est of which is capable of nccommo dating 150 large vessels. In 1902, 1B.513 vessels of 3,184,120 tons entered the port Practically tho same number cleared It The commercial fleet of tho city In pre war times was 140 vessels, Wine, rice tobacco, and raw Jute are its chief nrtl clcs of import. It exports flour, sugar and lumber. It is also a large manufac turlng centre, having factory plants cn gaged on a largo scale In tobarco, potro leum, refining, rice shelling, paper male Ing, tanning, and rope making. Tho city Is fully equipped with banks, Indus trial associations and commercial unions, There Is also a large torpedo factory there. The soil of the country is stony. but good for wine growing. The Gulf o Quanerno yields an extensive supply of fish. Flume does not belong to Italia Irredenta, which Is applied to Trieste forty miles to the northwest, and to th Trentlno. The culture of tho city, how ever, ns Is the case with many of th Islands of the Adriatic, Is Italian, dating from the times of Venetian supremacy I the Mediterranean. INSECTS OF THE SEASON (By VERMONT'S ELEMENT OF SAFETY Tho discussion In progress relative to tho desirability of a smaller Legislature has brought out many excellent point for and ngalnBt a change from our pros ont basis of legislative representation by -towns. Thn Bristol Herald, whoso cdl tor has served In tho Legislature, und who, therefore, spenks from personal ex perience as well as observation, com ments as follows: "Wo hnvo Ideas regarding the consti tution of our Statu nnd tho changes that mild ho mado.

That instead of ordering a ship to take him home President Wilson would have shown better Judgment to have sent for his summer clothes, That it Is proposed to relax on the col lege entrance requirements, but good southpaw and spltball pitchers have not boen complaining much about them, That In enlte of the fact that invari ably at this time of year the peach crop Is killed by the newspapers, some recK less and improvident people will continue to plant peach trees, That the Kaiser, placed on trial, will give a thrilling and heart-moving ac count of how 130,000,000 Teutons were at tacked by 7,000,000 Belgians and com pelled to tight against their will to iave themselves.

S. Brlgham, Vermont commissioner of agriculture, has sent out the following article by Harold L. Bailey, assistant I charge of insect suppression This Insect situation In the State at the present period Is somewhat remark' able for tho. comparative scarcity of cer tain of tho more notorious species such as the tent caterpillar and the brown-tall moth, with an nlmost complementary abundance of Insects which generally aro inconspicuous In their work and numbers. Also, the establishment In an adjacent State of a highly destructive corn Insect demands earnest attention. It Is the purpose of this circular to set forth the principal facts concerning several of these pests which appear most likely to attract attention this year. EUROPEAN CORN BORER (Pyfausta nuhllnlis Hulm) This Insect, accidentally Imported from the Old World, tins been found In eastern Massachusetts and near Hchnoctady, N. Y. Since It may easily havo been con veyed In shipments of green corn, there Is danger of Its appearance at any points where such produce has been received from the Infested area within the past five or six years. The damage is caused by tho boring corn from tlc nnslnn market Also. Very grower should L-o.n nlnnn wnleh for this Insect and Immediately report, to tho commissioner of agriculture, any thing which leads him to BUspoct Its presence. SADDLED PROMINENT (Hotcrocampa guttlvltta Walker) Lato last summer this Insect severely attacked maple and other hardwoods In tho southern part of tho State, notably In Guilford. Tho saddled prominent Is n native Insect, always present to somo ex tent, but only rarely becoming a pest. Tho best record outbreak of the species occurred In Mnlno In 1907-8-9. Judging by Its actions those years and by the usual course of such occasional rampages of native Insects, wo may expect a rccur- inco or the pest this season and possibly next, with probably a wider range of Infestation. The newly hatched caterpillars nppear lato In July, adorned with curious unt Icrllko appendages which later disap pear. When full grown, after about a month, they nro an Inch and a half long, green with a purple marking on tho back suggesting their name. They are practl- cally smooth, nnd taper toward the rear extremity. Late In August they form light cocoons In the leaf mold nnd trans form into shiny brown pupae In which state they remain till spring, the moths merging lato In May to deposit their eggs. Although tho cxcesslvo numbers nro euro to succumb within thrco or four years to tho attacks of Insect parasltos, birds nnd disease, tho saddled prominent Is extremely noxious while so plentiful. Artificial control In largo woodland areas Is Impracticable, but In certain cases, as f small sugar places, groves, shado trees, etc., It would appear that pro tection might bo had by rakfng and burning tho leaves and top leaf mold to destroy tho pupae or by pasturing hogs or poultry there for tho same purpose. heforo tho mlddlo of May. Apple orchards near Infcctations should bo sprayed with arsenate of load, 4 pounds paste to M gallons of water, cearly In July, for In Mnlno the species developed a decided tasto for npplo foliage. GREEN STRIPED MAPLE WORM (Anlsota rubicunda Fab) This species, sometimes known ns the rosy dryoenmpa, was discovered work ing with the saddled prominent, a com panionship of which there Is also record In other parts of the country, and an unusual number of adults nnd larvae were noted elsewhere about the State. From pupae found in the woods at Man chester whero trees had been stripped It would appear that this Insect wan particularly abundant there. Presum ably It may again be plentiful this year. Tho full grown larva Is two and a half Inches long, greenish white, marked with longitudinal dark green stripes. Thcro aro red patches on each side near the hind end and It may further be distin guished by two hornlike projections on tho head. Tho pupa is almost black and tho shell is hard. Tho adult Is of a hand some, creamy yellow color marked with rose. Tho Beasons of Its life history stages aro practically thoso of the sad dled prominent, but It feeds almost en tirely on maple. The pupae lie loosely under the leaves nnd may be destroyed by tho same measures as were recom mended for tho saddled prominent. YELLOW NECKED AND RED HUMP ED APPLE TREE CATERPILLARS (Dantana mlnistra Dru. and Schlzura conclnna S. & A.) These two native species usually In significant In Importance, have been so abundant In tho past two years as com pletely to strip many young orchards and to injure also larger trees. Their presence has often led to false alarms of gypsy moth discovery, it Is likely that they may again bo plentiful this sum mer. Their habits are, for practical pur poses, Identical. Adults deposit eggo in mid-summer, principally upon apple leaves. Thn caterpillars shortly hatch and begin feeding, all thoso from nn egg mass remaining cloSe together until full grown. While small trees may be de foliated, it is commonly only certain branches of tho larger ones which are stripped of leaves. As the egg laying period rovers several weeks groups of newly hatched cater- plllais aro frequently found on me same trees with fully grown ones. The common names well characterize these insects. Tho yellow necked cater pillars, when approaching maturity, are black, striped lengthwise with yellow and thcro is a band about the neck of tho same color. In tho earlier stages the whole body has an orange caM. It is over two Inches In length and Ib but thinly covered with hair. The red hump ed caterpillar is somewhat shorter, is dark colored, striped with fine reddlBh lines and has a pronounced red hump on the back. By close inspection Into In July the provalunce of these Insects can be noted In orchards by the beginning of their characteristic feeding and if many of the groups aro observed tho trees should at once be sprayed with arsenate of lead, 4 pounds paste to CO gallons of water. THE STATE MACHINISTS GO BACK TO WORK After being out for 10 days, tho strike of the machinists employed at tho Trow & Holdon plant nnd at tho Smith, Whit comb & Cook plant In Barre has been settled by agreement of employers and employes to a now bill, Under tho new ngreomcnt the men aro granted an olght-hour day and an advanco In wages over tho previous scale. Tho new agreement Is to bo run for ono year from May 1 and tho men resumed work Monday. Between 30 nnd 40 men nro af fected by the settlement.

PERIODICAL CICADA The periodical cicada Is scheduled to ap pear about the first of Juno throughout a largo section of the country; and al though previous records of It In Vermont are meagre, It is probable that the insect will emerge hero In at leaBt some locali ties. It was long ago misnamed "seventeen year locust," but It Is totally unlike the truo locust or grasshopper. The great locust plagues of history were caused by grasshoppers; not hy cicadas.

The adults are small moths wlthja wing expanse of about an inch, the fcmalo yellow and the rrnile brown with yel lowish markings. Thoy appear about the first of June from corn-stalks, stubblo and dry weeds within which tho caterpil lars havo wintered nnd pupated. They soon deposit oggs In little white inufses upon the plants and from them the first brood of caterpillars hatches within n few days.
