THE BARRE DAILY TIMES, RARRE. VT.. TUESDAY. JUNE 11, 1912.
WHERE DECEIT WAS JUSTIFIED Stratagem Used to Save an Old Man From Misery. A young man stood with his band on the latch of a house In the country, admired the cheerful appearance of the place, then knocked and was ad mitted by an old man. "You are Deacon Merivale, are you : not?" asked the visitor. "Speak louder. I am hard of. hear ing." "Are you Deacon Merivale?" the questioner repeated, raising his voice. Still he was unheard and shouted the 'question In the man's ear. "Yes; my name's Merlvale." "You bad son, Edgar, who ran way and" "Edgar? IWbat do you know about Edgar?" am Edgar's" "You Edgar? Can it be that my son has come home to be with me during the last few years I have to live?" "I was going to say that I am Ed srar's" "My boy! My boy!" sobbed the old man, falling on the stranger's ueck, , Meanwhile the two had drifted from the hall into the living room. As the .visitor looked over the old man's shoul der a door opened, and he saw the face and figure of a young girl on the threshold. The situation ,was awk ward. The deacon did not see the girl or hear her. She looked, at the newcomer for an explanation. "He thinks I'm Edgar." he said. "A quick intelligence passed over the girl's face. "Don't try to disabuse his mind," she said. "He has been talking of my brother continually of late." This was a great relief to the sup posed son. Now that the responsibili ty was on another he resigned him self to play his part "Father, forgive me," he said, with feigned emotion. The old man raised his head and saw his daughter. "Emily." he cried. "Edgar, yout brother, has returned to us!" Here was a new embarrassmen. Any brother returning from a long ab sence would naturally take his sister In his arms for an affectionate em brace. Any sister would naturally fly to the arms of her brother. "Daughter." snid the old man se vereiy. "I have forgiven Edgar. It is my wish that you welcome hlra home." The spurious Edgar advanced pent tentiy and, gently putting his arms about the girl, who blushed red as a .' rose, kissed her. That night after the old man had gone to bed. thankfulness in his heart at the return of his son, the stranger told Emily Merivale the story he had tried to tell her father. Edgar Meri vale and Frank Tucker were Joint prospectors in Colorado. Having ac quired a valuable mine, it was decided that Tucker should go east and organ lze a company to work it Just before Tucker left Merivale died, having charged his partner to bear the news to his father and sister. Emily dared not at present announce it to her fa ther. She determined to advise bet neighbors of the deception and for the present keep it up. Tucker was successful in his busi ness efforts and was making prepara tions to leave for the west One even ing Deacon Merivale entered the living room suddenly to find Emily in Tuck er's arms. "It beats all," he said at a church so ciable the next evening, "what broth erly and sisterly love there is between my boy and girl." This speech was not long in getting to the ears of the pair. What was to be done? After long deliberation they decided to be privately married and, telling the old man that Edgar desired his sister to go west with him, take their departure together. It was not an easy matter to per petrate an act that must be known to all the world save one person and he of the nearest relationship, but the place was small, and every one thought It would be a pity to break the news of Edgar's death to the old man, be supposing his son bad come home to him. It made Emily's heart bleed to 'leave her father alone, but there was no way to avoid doing so except by a confession. The couple were married in the dominie's study, then went home and bade adieu to the father. From their western home they wrote the deacon that the mine was doing famously and as soon as its success wa9 assured they would bring him out to Join them or return to him. His neighbors were much interested in hearing the old man talk about bis rhildren's affection for each other so great in fact as to render tbem insep arable. But as time passed and they neither returned nor sent for him he concluded to make them a visit He disappeared one day, and his neighbors at once Inferred where he had gone. It was generally admitted in the village that the secret would be out but all hoped that the shock would not break the old man's heart In a few weeks it was announced that he had returned. The first person to meet him was the dominie. "Well, deacon." asked the latter, "have you visited the runaways?" "Yes." replied the deacon, "and found them prosperous and happy. But na ture will have its way. Emily, to make up for her sacrifice in devoting her life to her brother, has adopted the pret tiest baby you ever saw." A few months later the deacon died, nappy in his children's happiness. "Girls! Girls! Vo Can All Stop Wear ing Dress Shields!" Eip Them Out-Here's PEESPI-NO.

In the June Woman's Home Compan ion, in an article on "The Girl Who Is Nervous," appears the following: The American girl, generally apeak tig, is a nervous girl; the nervousness, n one form or another, seems to crop up in all classes. "I happened to be in the train the other day with fifteen young girls who. with two chaperones, were going to rvew iorK City tor a matinee. Ihey were from one of the well-known fashionable schools on the outskirts of the city; the average fashionable boarding-school type daughters, doubtless, of the wealthy. "Some of them, wore helmet-shaped affairs that would have frightened Launcelot himself; others appeared from certain views to be ncekless, the brims of their hats literally resting on their shoulders; some seemed to have bor rowed for headgear the hats or stewing kettles of Og, Hog, and Magog; one had a quite flower-like beauty, seen full face, but only a huge hat-crown and a little bit of chin in profile; and so on and on. Around their shoulders were draped whole foxskins, or other animal skins with dangling claws and open or snarling mouths. "But noticeable as was the fashion of their dress, there was something even more unirmly noticeable about them; their nervousness. It was manifested in many different ways; their voices, first of all. These were high or loud, or hur ried or uncontrolled, not a really fine or beautiful modulation in one of them. Their language, too. was clipped and cut and illy pronounced; and their conversa tion full of 'very,' 'awful,' 'perfectly stunning.' 'perfectly adorable,' 'heavenly,' etc. All this with a smattering now snd then of the most execrable French, slovenly pronounced, too; and little snatches of affected laughter. "One girl twisted her gold chain; an other tapped her foot; another had a lit. tie jerky way of sitting up straight and g'gging. nd prefixing almost every speech with, 'Oh, girls, lemme tell you!' another hit her lips at little intervals; another had a nervous trick of frowning snd then raising her eyebrows; another, as she talked, played with some bangles she wore; another would give her huge muff a little shake and .then smooth it with a long stroking motion; another looked out of the window with what seemed a certain quietness, but when anyone spoke to lier, she gave a little start. To Influence Delegations Strong Press ure to Break Southern Loyalty Rockefeller Forces Said to Be for Third-Term Candidate. Chicago, June 11. Only the power of Wall street money used with a lavish ness which would put all preceding per formances to blush, will nominate Roose velt as a candidate for president of the United States, is, the opinion of men who are trying impartially to estimate the chances in the unprecedented contest just nearing its last days. This is a re markable statement to make of a great party and a great moralist candidate, but the fierceness of the contest cannot bo appreciated on the outside, and men who are close to the heart of things are talking plainly. Word has reaches Chicago that already "two strangers from the north," with unlimited cred are operating in one of the large south ern states, every one of whose delegates is definitely instructed by a regular and legal convention to vote to renominat President Taft. Treasure of the mo extraordinary character has been brought to bear on every man who seemed line lv to yield in his loyalty to the presi dent. The use of money is the last re sort, and is invariably a confession weakness and at the same time an in dication that the contest is so close and its outcome so doubtful that money would not be wasted in an effort to change a few votes. The stability of the Republican na tional committee in the. face of attac has been the feature of the week, an has forced a resort to extreme tactics, The steady gains of the president, as gisted by a remarkable change in pub lie opinion outside of Chicago, has dis posed of the pretensions of Senator Pix on that Roosevelt 'is as good as nom mated now. No man is as good as nominated," not even Taft, although the chances, to-day strongly favor the presi dent. That the Taft men are appre benaive, knowing the power of the MRS.

To make the owner of a building take a healthy interest in his property and force him to pay the moral as well as the financial tax: which society 'has a right to assess upon his earnings, is the object of a campaign to require every building in New York City to display conspicuously a brass plate jearing the name snd address of the owner. Already an ordinance to accomplish this has been introduced in the board of aldermen. Dubbed by its opponents, in ridicule and contempt," the "Little Tin Plate" ordi nance, this phrase has now been caught up as the slogan of a campaign which promises to yield results. "This ordinance," says John ITayncs Holmes in The Survey, "is nothing mow or less than a device to enable the oppo nents of unsanitary tenements, law-defying saloons, Raines law hotels, house of prostitution, etc., to trace back the evil in question to its ultimate source of responsibility, namely, the owner of the property concerned. "Simple in the extreme, practically: self-enforcing, rallying automatically on the side of social health, that universal love of personal reputation which is an essential part of our human instinct of j selt-preservation. utilizing with astonish ing ease and effectiveness that pitiless light of publicity which is always the most effective agent of social progress, no more useful 'ways and means' of cleansing a city of its pest-spots has ever been suggested.

In its favor can be urged everv consideration of public decency and or der. . , . A Skin of Beauty 13 a Joy Forever. DR. T. Falls Qouraud'a Oriental Cream or Magloal Beautlflor.

The Wall Street Journal editorially charges that the Rockefeller influence is being used directly in fa vor of Roosevelt. The United States Steel corporation for moaths has been doing its best to tleteat the president and The Journal is authority for the statement that Roosevelt lias assured the railroad interests that if elected he will permit a slight increase of railroad rates to enable the railroads to meet the steadily increasing charges of opera tion which have been' forced upon them This assertion, however, overlooks the important fact that the president of tho United States has no more control over railroad rates than the chairman of the civil service commission, that function being lodged exclusively in the interstate commerce commission. But that the colonel is not slow at making promises was demonstrated afresh yesterday, when his managers in Chicago gave out a four-page letter writ ten by him June 6, 1912, to L. S. Lake of Tennessee, in which, after stating that the recent floods afford proof pos itive that the levee system can no long er be relied on to protect the lands along the lower Mississippi, the colonel de clares thst, "In the event of my election to the presidency I shall proceed with out delay to have made a comprehensive study of the whole .Mississippi water shed with a view to the immediate in crease of the usefulness of this wonderful river to the people A more direct bid for the southern delegate vote, coming, as it does, at this psychological moment could not be conceived in the mind of man. The colonel also seeks to encour age southern political unanimity in his favor by complimenting the bill for the improvement of the .Mississippi intro duced by Democratic Senator Kewlands of Nevada. "The machinery and the trained force brought together for the Panama canal would be ready and avail able for this work, he says. Comment yesterday ran strongly upon the two great political mistakes made bv Roosevelt within two weeks, the first his sntagonism of Klihu Root, whom he attacked as a creature of boss Barnes of New York, and his second in personal ly sending to Chicago boss Flynn of Pennsylvania and thus placing himself as positively under boss leadership as he has charged Root with being. With in the last twenty-four hours the Roose velt managers have sent out hurry calls to their delegates and other leading Roosevelt men in every state in the I n ion. and the incoming doubtful delegate will be met at the portals of Chicago by the' personages in his community most powerful to influence his judgment in the voting during the convention. This influence will expand into an army by the middle of next week, and it is this army which Roosevelt proposes to place tinder command of William Flynn, thus virtually supplanting an able and faithful manager who publicly refused to "stultify" himself by accepting the national committee proxy, which Mr. "Flynn had no objection" to using, and who, moreover, as a candidate for re- "Just Say" HORLICK'S It Means Original and enu!na MALTED MILK The Food-drink for All Agas.

Declaring Fed eral Judge Cornelius H. Hanford of Seattle is a "judicial pervert, a moral bankrupt and a tool of corporations and special privilege, Attorney John H Perry of Seattle yesterday filed with Representative Norris (Rep., Neb.) an affidavit to supplement the impeachment charges already hied. Nine specifications of alleged miseon duct are made by Perry against Hmiford. .Most of them were included in Kepre (tentative Berger's jndictment of the jur ist. To-day they will be prest ntr-.l to the judiciary committee. A new charge is that Hanford, a the "agent of corrujt politicians," enjoined holding the "recall election" in Seattle March 7, 1011, when the , removal of Mayor (Jill was sought, and thwartel the will of 70,000 voters. A more serious allegation is that Han ford conspired with Attorneys Carey and MeCom of Seattle in bankruptcy pro ceedings in 1005 in which the Alaska Packers' association was interested. Perry also asserts that Hanford gave the attorneys a re-eivers fee of $104. Oi'O, and then all three organized the Hanford Irrigation & Power company."

Threatened with sununary chastisement by his aunt if he diil not stop hugging her, Moses Lazaro- witz, a resident of the Home of the Daughters of Jacob, in Fast Broadway, felt uulv humiliated Sunday.

A WORD TO PARENTS Look After Your Child's Health Daring the Yean of Most Rapid Growth. School children who are nervous, who cannot sit quietly on a chair, who are always dropping things, and perhaps have twitching of the muscles f the face, need Dr. Williams' Pink Pills at once. Growing girls who become pale and thin, who have fickle appetites; who are out of breath after climbing the stairs, and who have palpitation of the heart after tho least exertion, need them also. Parents of such children should not delay the treatment. Nervous children " do not develop properly. A sickly girl hood means a sickly womanhood and lack of blood during the years of most rapid growth means flat-chested, listless, ambitionless men and women later on. Pure, rich, red blood is what is need ed. Strength for the nerves follows naturally. The time to correct tho need of these is now, before any more barm is done. Miss Carrie E. Hathaway, of North Houghton street, North Adams, Mass.. was cured of amemia by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills after her case was pronounced hopeless by her doctor. The statement of per cure is told by her mother, Mrs. A. A. Hathaway. "My daughter, Carrie, was confined to her bed for two years suffering from anirmia. She seemed to have no blood and was as pale as a ghost. She was thin and did not weigh more than 100 pounds, had no strength or ambition and could no. sit up. Iler appetite was poor and she had difficulty in breathing. No one expected her to get well and our minis ter, before going on his vacation, came to bid her goodbye as he did not think she would live until his return. We spent hundreds of dollars but the doc tor seemed to be puzzled and could not help her. She had been sick for over two years before I decided to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial. The pills gave her ouick relief and cured her after a fair trial. She has had no serionj sickness since .nd weighs 170 pounds. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills rse a wonder ful remedy and I cannot say enough in praise of them." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all druggists, or sent postpaid, on re ceipt of price, 60. cents per box: six boxes for $2.50 by the Dr. Williams Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.

The labor members of the House of Commons had been pressing the home secretary for some time to grant to the suffragettes the privileges of political prisoners. NO ESCAPE FOR LAND THEFT. Always hang a broom or stand on han dle if you want it to do good work. A pair of cotton blankets make bet ter lining than cotton batting. They require little tacking and can be washed successfully. When sewing at the, machine it will be found convenient to sew a piece of cloth around the arm of the machine to use for a pin cushion, .; Should you spill hot fat on the floor or on a wooden table, poor cold water upon it at once. It can then be mora eusily scraped off, not having had time to sink into the wood. Always wash a board with cold wa ter and soap if you wish to keep it a pood color. A little silver sand added to the soap will greatly improve the ap pearance if the board is discolored. When using Chinese lanterns for deco rative purposes, put a few handfuls of sand in the bowl-shaped bofttom, around the candle, says Pictorial Iteview. This wiil keep the lanterns from swaying and also tend to prevent their catching fire. To wash greasy tin and iron pour a few drops of ammonia into every greasy pan after half filling the pan with warm water. A bottle of ammonia should al ways be kept on the shelf near the sink for this purpose. An excellent way to clean a net waist is said to be as follows: Take gasoline in a pan (dish pan) out of doors. Din in the waist; then have a flour sieve with some flour, and shake on the wet lace and rub until the gasoline and flour are both soiled; then put on line to dry. When dry shake and brush well, and the waist will look like new. Laundry Hints. It is one of the most trying ordeals for the woman who does her own laun dry work to go from a hot room filled with steam and vapor to the chilling and bitter winds outside. After bein; put through the wringer, every pieco should be carefully shaken out, and all pieces of the same kind may be placed together. If clothes are put into the basket in proper order and condition, the work of hanging them out is re duced at least one-half. They also dry in better shape and are easier to iron. Clothes pressed into folds in the wring er. then hung upon the line still in wrinkles and dried that way are exceed ingly troublesome when they reach the ironing board. It is an axiom of the housekeeper that "work properly begun is half clone." . Certainly the laundress who flings clothes on the line regardless of the shape in which they dry has loat sight of future advantages that may come from a beter way of handling. Frozen Delicacies.

Smallpox and Vaccination in the United States. To those interested in public health, vaccination for the prevention of small pox is always a subject of interest. In the countries where vaccination has been consistently and uniformly practiced, smallpox, which formerly was one of the most common diseases,, has become one of the rarest. This is notably true in Cuba, Germany, France, England, Porto Rico nnd the Philippine islands. In the continental United States smallpox has been Avidely prevalent for a number of years, thousands ot cawes neing report ed annually. No section of the country seems to be free from the disease, al though during some years certain states have 'had but few reported cases. This prevalence of the disease indicates a gtneral disuse of the practice of vac cination, or its limited application. In this country a general vaccination law is impossible as the authority to legislate on matters of this kind is vested in the several states. In a recent bulletin issued by the public health and marine hospital" service, the laws snd regula tions of the several states relating to vaccination have been compiled and com pared. It is shown that there is a marked lack of uniformity, and that legal requirements for compulsory gen eral vaccination exist only in Kentucky, the Philippine islands and Porto Rico. Arizona, Hawaii, Maryland, New Mexico and North Dakota have laws requiring the vaccination of children, which, if enforced, would in time produce a popu lation of which a large proportion would hove been vaccinated at least once. Although smallpox has been widely ptevalent in the I'nited States for years, it has, probably because of its general extreme mildness, received less atten tion than fhould have ln-en given to it. In many sections it has been so mild that the case death rate has been iis low as 0.2 per cent., or one death in 5'K1 cases. This is quite at variance with the usual experience with the disease. In most countries, the caw death rate varies from 15 to 40 per cent., and this was apparently true in the Lnited Mates previous to 1 808. The Journal of the American Association says that the gen eral mildness of the present form of smallpox should not produce the belief that the people of this country are pe culiarly immune or resistant to the dis ease, as it has been shown by repeated local outbreaks of the virulent form that no such immunity exists. The fact that the disease is at present usually mild in no wise removes or lessens the need for the general practice of vac cination and revaccination. the syrup and freeze. The lemon may be omitted and less sugar used. Milk sherbet calls for a quart of milk, two cupfuls of sugar these half frozen and then the juice of three lemons, added and the sherbet frozen stiff. Lemon sherbet requires a quart of milk in which half a cupful of sugar , has dissolved to the juice of three lem ons and six tablespoonfuls of sugar. Have the milk and sugar very cold. Add the lemon juice and extra sugar and pack and freeze as usual. Whipped cream beaten into ice cream at the last minute makes a simple par- ' fait that ring a change on the frozen . desserts. Coffee ice cream served in this : way is delicious. And chocolate ice rieam is excellent. The parfait should be served in glasses. A pint of cream is needed to a quart of the ice cream, i For tea frappo, which makes a more refreshing beverage on a hot afternoon than the steaming cup, cook two cup ful, of sugar in two cupfuls of water ui.til it spins a light thread. Then turn thi;' syrup over the grated rhind of half an orange and half a lemon. Cool and add the fruit juice. Turn in a cupful of strong tea made fresh. Cool, strain and freeze to a mush.
