Mr. Hanley has been a staunch friend of Burlington and we shall be sur prised If his appointment does not mean You can not conceive of Vermont repub licans opposing protection for American Industries and tho products of American labor, nor 100 per cent Americanism In other connections. How can we consist ently claim to be genulno republicans If wo oppose the national party on this is- largely Increased patronage for the Con- suo of s"nB and political justice for Ul Vermont. women, which at this time completely overshadows tho protection Issue? Here is what the St. Albans Messenger says on tho subject: "William Howard Taft points out to Governor Clement the responsibility a THE INTERCHUnCU MOVEMENT In another column appears a communi cation quoting utterances by different publications In opposition to the World Inter-Church Movement.

The Rutland News speaks of this sub. Ject from another angle as follows: "There aro some evidences that the ad vocates of women suffrage In Vermont believe Governor Clement Is going to conserve the forces of Christianity and , tnaw out sufficiently to call a special ses to make It thus possible to reach out Into slon of tho Legislature for tho purpose new fields. It Is difficult to understand.0' taking action on the proposed equal how much a world movement for Chris tian uplift can be regarded with apprehen sion by nnybody except the champions of narrow denomlnntlonallsm. MEDICAL COI.I.F.fiE OPEN TO WOMEN An event of far-reaching significance and Importance Is the opening of tho Col lege of Medicine of tho University of Ver mont to women students. At one tlmo the opening of a medical college to women would have bcen re garded as revolutionary. At least it might have created a revolt In certain schools of medicine. As tho situation la to-day, this alep is recognized as a distinct ad vance' In service. In the first place wom an In the practice of medlclno Ib no longer an experiment. In the second place It is now recognized that women have a dis tinct and fitting field In medicine and its allied branches. In the third place there Is a growing scarcity of physicians, which apparently can be supplied In no other way. In tho fourth place woman are es pecially adapted to the caro of jatlcnts, and they will be able to perform a much needed servlco In response to nn ever In creasing demand. In opening the college of medlclno to women the University authorities nro not only holplng to provide a new field to tho women of tho region but they are also responding especially to tho call o rural communities which In so many Instances now havo no resident physician. In other words tho university Is again showing It- to ratify tho federal suffrage amend ment. The telegram follows: Paris, Texas, April S, 103. Lilian H. Olzcndam, Burlington, Vt. Forward the following to Governor Clement. "Your Excellency: Earnestly urge upon you the calling of a special session of the Vermont Leglslatuie to consider tho question of ratifying tho woman suffrage amendment to tho federal constitution.

Hi The picture shows, the drug stores, the collectors of luxury taxes out West, have been required to split the nickels just as Is done on the Atlantic seaboard. The penny has been forced Into general uso In tho Rockies and beyond for the first time. A MOUNTAIN OF PENNIES It is interesting to take the measure of It seems only fair that tho competent authorities In the other States who have not acted should gl-e their Legislatures an opportunity to act bofore the next presidential election. It would seem to j be great responsibility for a governor to I assumo to prevent his State from taking action where so much depends upon tho this penny Hood that Is sweeping over the j Stato action. The Republican party Is land. It takes 120 pennies to weigh a fully committed to woman suffrago and pound. On this basis, a month's coinage " grcauy in mo interest, ot mo party of G0.000.000 pennies would weigh 500,000 suffrage amendment to the foderal con stitution. It Is almost too much to hope, howovor, because His Excellency's habits of thought stamp him as one opposed to change of any sort, and unless further political aspirations lend him to bow to tho dictates of expediency It would be strange Indeed to see Mr. Clement lend ing his support to any departure from the established order." Governor Clement hns been trying to set up tho Vermont constitution against tho Constitution of tho United States. However, the federal constitution, which even Vermont's governor must admit to bo the supreme law of all States em phasizes over and over again equality, equality not excluding colored people and foreigners, who become citizens. And yet somo people would bar the most Intelll gent American women from that equal ity we give freely to ex-slavesl Vermont was one of the first States to write Into a constitution emancipation for the color ed race. It should not be tho last to con cede emancipation to the women of Ver mont as well as of the ontlre United States. pounds. This would load 133 big draye. To haul a year's output of pennies would require a train of freight cars half a mile long. There Is not a railroad engine In tho world that could pull It up a four per cent, grade. Pennies are 95 per cent, copper and five per cent, tin and zinc, which latter ma terials decrease their tendency to cor rode. A pound of the resulting alloy costs about 23 cents, and the coin Is valued at W.S0. Though the pennies register the big in crease In .'mall coins used, thero has also been a larger demand for nickels. Be fore tho appearance of the unubual con ditions that have grown out of tho war the country consumed about 28,000,000 nick els a year. That number has recently in creased to about 100,000,000. This develops another neat task in man ufacture for the government. When ono gets behind the scenes at the treasury It develops that a nickel is not a nickel at all, or at any rate. Is but one-fourth nick el. This coin Is largely the same mate rial as the penny. It Is 75 per cent, cop per. To the copper is added 23 per cent, nickel which hardens the metal and dom inates It In appearance. The treasury takes a quarter's worth of this alloy, puts tho stamp of the government on It and turns out M.OO worth of the coin ot the realm. It takes 73 nickels to weigh a pound. A hundred-pound bag would contain 7,500 of them nnd would bo worth $375. Tho nickeld that tho nation uses In a year would require rtyru than 13,000 such bags and it would take ICG four-ton trucks to transport them. In those 10 years before 1910 the United -States had turned out silver subsidiary coin at the rate of about $10,000,000 a year. For the past three years the demand has been around $25,000,000 a year, and this year it promises to reach $30,000,000. LOST MONEY One strange feature In this manufac ture of small coin lit the fact that a con stant flood of It Is kept going out, is be ing poured into the pockets of the people, nnd almost none of It ever comes back. This is particularly true of pennies. The larger and more valuable coins come back to the treasury for redemption but not the pennies. It Is supposed that people are careless with pennies nnd thnt they are lost. So great Is the quantity of them that It would seem, If this thing goes on In definitely, the ground would eventually become covered with them, Thero must bo millions of lost pennies lying around the country now. that republican governors should recog nlze this and act on it. I take the liberty of appealing to you therefore to call your Legislature. "(Signed) "WILLIAM H. TAFT." WIIY PLANTS TURN TO THE LIGHT Plants and animals have many factors In common; they both respond to certain stimuli from without, and turn toward, or away from, this source of action. Theso turning movements aro called "troplsms," and the most common of theso Is ono which wo can observe every day when a plant bends toward the sun, or tho sourco of light. This particular troplsm Is called "hello-troplsm" (form the Greek Helios, Sun). The leaves of plants seek the light for the reason that the chemical activity which goes on within thorn only proceeds in the presence of sunlight. This Is tho so- he regained possession of tho stono, add returned home In despair. Incldontally he found that ho had lost his position as furnlturo polisher In a largo furniture house, A fow days later ho appealed to Edmund II. McCarthy, lawyer, 628 Bee Building, with whom he was acquainted. McCarthy took tho stono to Chicago, It was cut and polished by Gustav Glllmann, lapdlst, 1131 Webster street, who pronounced It tho largest flawless ruby In the world and valued It at more than J1CO.000. WATCHES JEWEL CLOSELY During tho cutting and polishing process Mr. McCarthy never onco allow ed the stone to leavo his sight, ho says. Ho returned the stone to Mlhok yester day, a great shining Jewel, larger than pigeon's egg. "And now I can send the kids to school so long as they care to go?"smlled Mlhok, his eyes feasting on tho great gem. "Is It not so? And was not my good-tuck stono a regular good-luck stone?" he added. Mrs. Mlhok, a frail llttlo woman, 1 poered shyly over her husband's shoulder for a glimpse of tho flaming Jewel which , was to bring her caso and rest. There i was tho trace of a tear In her eyes as sho stammered: "Perhaps we can add a room or two to our house, now, John?" And John, who had some conception of tho value of money, assured her that thoy could add several dozen rooms if she wanted them. Local Jewelers say the stone will be come world-famous when It Is placed on the market. It Is 8.5 hard, and its specific gravity Is .0;". The largest per fect ruby In tho world Is only 17H carats, according to local authorities. It Is owned by the king of Blscnpur, India. Mr. McCarthy has named tho gem the "Grent Mlhok." Ho will tako immediate steps to market It. Tho "Great Mlhok" is now safe ln a safety deposit vault In a down-town bank.

Tho number of disturbances last year was S7. and tho numbor reported the previous year was 127. A very large proportion of these, of course., aro so slight ns to bo en tirely unnoticed by the public. On tho Pacific coast slight earth tremors are of sufficient frequency to cause no comment whatever. The majority of quakes re ported aro from that region. One surprising fact, however, shown by the summary of earthquake reports for 1919, which has recently beon prepared. Is that moro than a score of these dis turbances occurred In tho Mississippi Valley. The region comprising southern Illinois, southern Indiana, western Ken tucky, and western Tennessee experi enced 30 quakes, while one was recorded In northoastern Missouri, two immedi ately south of Wichita, Kans., and one In Washington, D, C. Many disturbances ln t the total number reported would have wholly escaped attention but for the seis mographs, which are so delicate that they usually will detect a violent shock, no nyuicr in what part of tho world It occurs. this chemical action begins, and pro ceeds rapidly and food for the plant Is thereby manufactured. The onset of darknoss stops this, and even a passing cloud will halt Its activity appreciably. Plants and animals arc said to be positively hcllotroplc when they turn toward the source of light and negatively helltroplc when they turn away from It. Light tends to stimulate tho chemical activities of the body, particularly th oxidations. Henco. If both sides ere stimulated equally, the croaturo some times tends to move directly toward the light or even right Into It, as In tho caso of the moth. Whether an animal Is positively or negatively hcllotroplc depends upon whether light causes an In crease or a dcrease In the tension of tho muscles. It Is thought a certain acid Is created ln tho animal's body which pro ducer, theso results. Prof. Jacques Loeb has even applied these facts to ethlcsand psychology. Heroward Carrlngton, in Leslie's.
