This is a literal statement of fact. For in
every one of the 8225 Nokol homes an
even temperature will be automatically
maintained, no matter what the weather.
We knovv this because Nokol has served
for 5 years now: we have the ovvners'
word for the superlative service Nokol
has rendered.
Nokol means a lifetime of scientific hcat
ng, not an experiment with a hearing de
dee. It removes the human element troni
your heating; it is as certain in operation
as your electrip light and requires hardly
more attention.
Nokol does away with the uncertainty,drudsery
and dirt of coal heating; cold rooms in the morii
ing, banked fires.'noisy grates.càrryinjj outashes.
It does away with smoke, soot and dust. A Nokol
basement is as clean as a living room.
And .Nokol is not expensive. With the present
prices of coal and oil it costs much less to operate
than a coal furnace. Nokol is an investment that
will makeyou payin; returns year after year for
ali your lifetime.
Nokol burns oil in your present hearing plant and
does away forever with the uncertainty, dirt and
drudgery of coal hearing. Nokol can he installed
in any type of home lieating plant steam, hot
water, vapor or hot air without alterations. Nokol
operate automatically the temperature is per
fectlv controlied hv a tbermostat.

hat is going to be the ultimate
result of the development of our
water powersV We are ali familiar
with our abandoned farms and in !
one instance I have seen an aban
doned village. A large share oi the '
blame for pu.-t abandonment of j
farms I have laid to our present i
centralization of scnools; the vii-
lage in question I was told was
abandoned for the sanie reason. '
Uut today I believe we are con
i'ronted with more abandoned vil
lages and the blame will not be ali
laid to our scliool system but will
be chaiged lo tho present develop
ment of water power. This proph- ;
esy needs explant tion. It is this.
Today the pian scems to be to take
and tlevelop a water power in a
.-mail village for the benefit of a
larger community. The new coni- :
pany will agree ;th the preent
owner of the water power who is
today using it, say for a grist mill,
that they fuinish him enough iiow
ei' to run his mill for five years i
without charge. At the end of five '
years what is going to happen? '
In ali probahihty the charge for
the use of electric currcnt will be
.-o high as to be prohibitive and
your gri-t mill or other locai in
dustry will go out of existence, I
firinly believe in this possibility
as an actuahty unless remedia
legislation is enacted. Our next
Governor has stated that the ow- j
er of our Public Service Commis- i
sion .-hould be enlarged. If it is the
Comniission may see to it that
such a possibility does not become '
a fact. Jloubtless you will say ali !
this may sound well and that i ani i
right but how does it concern the 1
Village of St. .lohtisbuiy. It con- !
cei ns St. John.-bury as it does :
many other municipalities locateti
on a lini of railroad who serve the 1
villages not .-o avlvantageously lo- i
cateti, and as 1 write this I have in
mind the fact that Vermont is ,
primarily an agi'icultural state, j
There is no other state in the
Union which can raise per acre
what we can both a. regards
quantity but (juality. W'e aie not
an industriai state, our timbri- has
been early ali cut altho consider
atile (uantities of pulp wood and
hardwood remain.
My thought ubout preserving lo
cai indu.-tnes in our'small villages
may .-ceni ineonsistcnt with my
statement that Vermont is an
agricultural .-tate, however, the
fact remains that the small com
munities mean cultivated farms,
at leust it has in the pas! and
ought to hold truc today and for
that reason it seems to me that it
oueht to be the policy of the
state to entourage rural life rath
er than discourage it and without
any fixed ))olicy it would seem
that with the automobile, the tele
phone and dectiicity, the farm
and .-inali village ought to prosper.
I h;ive alicady written much
more than inteiuied altho 1 had in
mind an explanation of what the
fixing of a freight rate, a
telrphone rate or an electric light
rate means. It would date back to
18'.'2 when Ju-tice lirewer of the
United States Supreme Court

The Christmas Message
"Good Tidings of Great Joy"
Fear was turned into joy by the Advent of Jesus Chris!.. Christianity is a religion
of joy. It was good news to the slave, to the workraan, to the child. It began w ith a
song out of the sky and earth soon began to vibrate in sympathy with the angelic
music. The Advent reveals God in a joy-giving way. God made flesh that is the
sovéreign remedy for the world's fear. The Advent reveals man in a joy-giving way.
In the face of Christ we see what man is capable of becoming. God became the Son
of ma n, that man might become the child of God.
