"Your farm has wonderful possibilities, even greater than you nro now enjoying." said James, "I find one of your cows shows signs of tuberculosis. Several others do not look as though they were able to give enough milk to make them profitable. I would weed them out and keep only good healthy cows of the highest possible productive capacity.

"Well." replied James, "I know of no place where labor-saving machinery and an inventive mind can be used to better advantage than right on a dairy farm.

A SUCCESSFUL, SUMMER SCHOOL, Superintendents and teachers from tkher parts of the State who have been ih touch with the 12th annual session of the University of Vermont's summer BChool tell us that It has been a remark ably helpful and successful undertaking. They say that teachers are certain to take greater advantage of this opportun tfy for "brushing up" during the summer Vacation. They predict a pronounced In crease in the attendance from this source alono next year. SVe nre naturally gratified to Becure this unprejudiced testimony. It confirms the Impressions we have gained from a close observation of developments during tho session. Wo felt that the BOO people In attendance were securing material re sults and aids that would be of service to them in their work during the coming year In the schools and elsewhere. This outside testimony Is also In line with what advices we are receiving rela tive to the coming year In all the de partments of the University. So far as" We can see, it will be by all odds the fclggest year In the history of the Insti tution. The session of the summer school Just ending as helped to contribute to tJis end.

Here is one man of tables and averages who is human. He was, during tho World Wajr, Colonel Leonard P. Ayres, attached to the office of the Chief of Staff. He is now Mr. Ayres, director of eduoatlon for the RUBSell Sago Foundation. SAVE THESE WAR FIGURES At the close of tho war Colonel Ayres compiled for the War Department a statistical summary which, showed at a glance what had happened during those months of conflict. His summary showed, for Instance, that tho total battle deaths ln tho recent war wero greater than the deaths ln all wars for a hundred years before; that Russia suffered most, de- spno ner witntirawai; tnat uermany lost thirty-two times as many men as the United States; Franco 28 times as many, and Great Britain 18 times as many. In this war St men In 1,000 were killed in battle ln a year, while ln the Civil War 33 ln 1,000 were so killed, and in tho Mexican War 15 ln each 1,000. Thus the death rate in battle during the World War was highest of all wars. Colonel Ayers further reported that during the Mexican War 110 In each 1,000 men died of disease, and that 65 ln each 1,000 men were lost from the same cause during the Civil War. But during the World War the loss from disease was only 19 In each 1,000 men, so that the late conflict scored a great success through making a science of cleanliness. Now the man who compiled these vital figures has been counting the words people use. The ten next most used words are have, not, with, be, your, at, we, on, he, by. They are all little fellows, who, like Peter Pan, never grow up. Colonel Ayres, ln his study of educa- 1 tlonal problems, developed tho theory 1 that tho words ln the spelling books ( should be those which people use ln that most common form of writing which appears ln the letters they transcribe. Spoken words do not need to bo spelled. Few people write anything other than business and personal letters. Would It ho possible, he asked, to find out what words were used in this sort of writing, and to make sure that they were in the spelling hooks? FEW WORDS ARE USED He went to a dozen different organi zations which received typical letters, and got great packs of them for statis tical analysis. Ho tabulated letters run ning Into more than 300,000 words altogether. The surprising fact was de-1 veloped that but about 2,000 different words wero used in all this correspond ence. A man with a vocabulary ot 2.000 words could have dictated these letters from thousands of people, writ ing on hundreds of subjects. Yet the child In the elementary grades studies nbout 12,000 words, and a desk dictionary contains 26,000. Many of these words are bo rare that the avarage Individual never uses them, The practical thing would seem to be to learn the used words first. To find out those words was the object of this queer statistical compilation. Half of the bulk of the letters written by the people Is made up of a simple list of fifty words, all of which are of ono syllable except the modest word, any. Three hundred words constitute thrce--"rurths of the space ln tho letters wo write, and a thousand of them do ninety per oent of the work. In th first 200 of most frequently used words there are but b half-dozen of moro than one syllable. They f-ro nearly nil homely words of Anglo-Saxon derivation. Thoy , aro such words as when, time, eome, any, can, what, send, them, more, week, night, their, good, say, could, mnlte, write, thing. If you run along the list of Colonel Ayres" words you find nt the bottom of the eight columns tho following: Men, came, matter, separate, tenth, push, oon corn, and the thousandth word, In the frc quenoy of Its use, Is wreck.

The reference reader need only turn to the pages he Is Interested in, then take the pictures, He will there fore avoid elaborate tracing of drawings or designs, copying of statistics or quot ations and long hours of reading In the library. His finished pictures he can put direct ly Into his notebook, studying them at his own pleasure Instead of within library hours. To the ordinary re'ader this method pre sents some slight difficulties. The high cost of developing and printing Is one of them. Another lies In tho temptation to and danger of getting a groat deal more material than one really needs and so cluttering up ono's notebook or desk. In the small library, however, there would bo ono great advantage.
