Montpelier Is mighty fortunate in having in Its service a man like Fred L, Crulkshank. Few cities can boast of an official that renders such high class service as doeB Mr. Crulkshank. He understands the affairs of this city perhaps better than any other man, and right now, and for the past year and a quarter, the detail work in connection with the bonding and paving proposition, the service ren . dered by this official has been moBt .valuable to the city. The city clerk's office has been a regular man's job during this period and Mr. Crulkshank has filled it with credit and satisfaction, city officials will find in Mr. Cruik shank a valuable associate in office. The Bame is true of F. N. Bryden. Mr. Bryden was re-elected council man from the Second ward. He has been a faithful officer—always in his chair at council meeting and taking an active part. The service and experience of these gentlemen will add greatly to the success we see in store for the administration. The new HIGH WAGES AND NO WORK Michael Artery has issued one of the clearest and most logical bita of common sense on a matter of im portance to the Nation's reconstruc tion programme that has been heard in this land for weeks. Speaking on the contractors pro posal to cut wages 12 1-2 per cent to a Chicago building trade union of .which he is secretary, Artery sum med the situation up as follows: "What's the use of making a dol lar and twenty-five cents an hour if you can't get work? The cost of living has dropped 29 per cent in the last year. We are asked to make a cut in our wages to correspond to this decrease. The carpenter's un ion has rejected the proposal. The result is 80 per cent of them are out of work and are not drawing a cent. At the reduced wage they might be working and making a living. Let's trim our wages, boys, and we'li all eat." The union served by Artery imously voted to-accept the wage cut 1 . High costs are killing the build ing industry. Materials are too high with the exception of lumber; labor is too high in relation to the cost of living. Ajll those engaged in the building industry—producers of ma terial, employers and workers should co-operate to that end—lumber and a few sane labor leaders have point ed the way. Revival of a great Industry like that of building will have a good ef fect, ramifying throughout all Michael Artery or Chicago said a mouthful to his mates. unan our economic structure.

Wright Is in receipt of information from the state highway department at Boise, which sets forth the amount of fed eral aid extended to the states of the union since 1917, and the amount which is available up to and includ ing the present year. From the Information gathered out of a chart furnished by the fed eral government, it appears that the state has had and used all its al lotment with the exception of about 2300,000. This amount, if ap portioned among all the counties of the state according to population, would not give this county enough aid to do anything. Their Greatest Menace.

Even In Druidic worship In pre Christian times, the trefoil leaves of the clover plant were symbols of re ligion, setting forth the three grades of Druids, Bards and Neoph| Christian mythology its leaf quently held to symbolize the Trinity, and some Irish authorities Insist that It is the true and original shamrock which St. Patrick used to illustrate how three separate objects, such as leaves, could be • one. The ftmr-leaf-clover Is a- freak growth and the causes that produce it are heredity and nutrition. After a moist season clover plants with from four to seven leaves, and some having only two leaves, are found, plants are abnormal by heredity, and reproduce themselves with the same characteristics In successive years when their environment remains the same, exterpal influences merely modi fying the size of the leaves. The four-leaf clover is everywhere held as an omen of good lock to tht finder, partly on account of its rarity and partly because of Its crosslike form. tea. In Is fre Some Carved 8tatue of Famed God. The name of Unkel, is a household word to the Japanese. The son of a fisherman, and in his youth a humble fishermen himself, he was responsible for one of the most remarkable epochs In the history of Japanese wood sculp ture. The story is told by those who 4« Supposed to know that the king of tlte underworld was very much Irri tated that Unkel had never done him ^justice, although the sculptor had at tempted to carve his Image many times, says Elsie F. Well In Asia. So when he died, the king of the dead Buddhist souls sent Unkel back to earth, that after having seen the god, he might make a faithful portrait. The result may be seen today in the temple Enno-jl at Kamawkura, where Unkei's statue of Emma, cruel and savage in Its strength, strikes terror into the hearts of all who fear to meet the Judge of Hell. Daisies Like 8heep. One would think it impossible for a daisy to be mistaken for a sbeep, yet in New Zealand a member of the daisy family grows to such a size and is like a sheep that It is often mistaken, even by shepherds, for one of these animals. SO The vegetable sheep, as it Is called, grows in exposed places, and its branches are clothed with small leaves which have the appearance of wool. The shape and size of the plant make its likeness to a sheep complete. Vegetable sheep are tound on grass which Is suitable for sheep, and they often cause the shepherd a good deal of trouble. Thinking that one more of his sheep have been left be hind, he goes out of his way to investi gate, only to find that the supposed sheep is merely a plant or ( , '/Æ m. m hi SHE MUST BE ENGAGED— TWICE And where la Herbert! ■later, Tommy?
