When you settle down to live in a
place, you become a partner in the
public enterpri.se of maintaining
community life. This partnership ex
ists, even araong people who pay no
taxes. If they buy supplies or pay
board, they help pay taxes indirectly.
Hence they are interested in this pro
position of community maintenanca.
But some people do not seem to
e any share in
this community of interest. Men who
have charge of public parks say that
hoodlums will come in and deliberate

plants, and do other damage. If they

The 11)20 annual exhibition of the i
Canadian Eastern Townships begun j
so inauspiciousiy ,6 years ago, will I
again be staged at the exhibition
ground of Sherbrooke, Que., Aug. 28
to Seit. 4.
By reason of the unique interest
which the Great Eastern Townships
l'air holds for Americans, it is expect
cd that even last year's remarkable
record for American attendance will
be shattefed. The Sherbrooke exhib
ition has in the past attraeteci visit
ors from ali sections of the United
States and Canada. This year the
educational as well as the recreational
features of the fair have been trreat-
ly augmented
Even hot weather and busy farm
wVrk seem to put no damper on the
sold ! thusiasni that covers New England,
over the coming session of the Na
tional Grange in Boston, November
10-19 next, which thousands of Pat-1
rons are planning to attend. Big
classes of new members for subordinate-and
Pomona Granges, with
groups of hundreds rromised for the
special sixth degree sessions to be
held in ali the six states the ntxt two
months. are the signs that point to
the certainty that the 10,000 class for j
the -soventi! degree in Boston will be i
reached. !
A competent housing bureau has j
been organized, which assures lodg-1
ing to ali who come to Boston, no i
matter how many come! Provided,
however, that early application is
made to this bureau at Room 1"6,
i State House, Boston. It is conscr-
vativrly estimateci that not less than
20,000 New England Grange mem
bers will attend some of the Boston
sessions, while the greater part of
them will be there on Friday, Nov
ember 12th. for the" seventh degree,
either as candidates or as spcctators.
Following the degree work on the
above-mentioned evening, a great
program will be put on, which an
nouneentent will make every New
England patron want to be there.

Increased co.-lt of lice bears down
hard on two classes of people of about

hoodlums who promote the wedding

ought to do something positive to
help improve it. But if you can't set
out a tree or plant shrubs, at least
refrain from any damage to its pro

session, is hardl realized as yet; but1
it is certain to bc one of the best
quality displays of New England ag-;
licultural produets that has ever been !
macie. Plans for the state exhibits !
are ali well under way and largo
space is to be ued therefor. ' The
market gardeners, the fruit growers, !
the cranberry growers and other
.-jiecial lines of agriculture are ali to '
be much in evidence, while some in- :
dication ot the interest shown is
seen in the fact that the National
Cranberry Growers' Exchange has i
appropriated $2ó00 for their exhibit, :
while the maple sugar makers' as-
sociation ol X'ermont will undertake !
the most pretentious exhibit they.
have ever made. While some of the i
states will specialize in their leading ;
produets, Massachustts agriculture
will be shown in its great variety of :
staples, doubtless surprising many of i
the distant farmers as to the num- j
ber of such staples being rcgularly :
grown in the state. i
In addition to the large number of I
Grange members who will come to ,
Boston for several days of the ses-1
sion, and those who will drive their;
machines, plans are under way to ;
ìun in special trains from ftlaine,
New Hampshire, Vermont and Con- ;
necticut; whje it is confidently ex-
pected that a reduced railroad rate of
fare and one-third will be secured for,
ali who come bv regular trains, from !

It is to be borne in mind that, ex- j
cept when the highcr degrees are be- j
ing confermi, ali National Grange;
sessions are open to ali subordinate;

Pcx Bcach's tremendous drama of
Alaska, "THE BltAND." Tlie moj
lealistic, thrilling picturc since 'The
Spoilers." The biggest, most unusual
of ali Rex licach production. Des
perate fight scenes, startling climaxes;
the frozen trail of Alaska in the dead
of a raging storm-night;a man brand
ed with the white-hot barici of his
own gun; the Northwestern mounted
police in action; the sensational ruid
in the City of Gold. And through this
story of unleashed passions there
also runs a tender story of love and
romance; a story of two men, one
woman and the unwritten law of the
great northland. The best Iìex
