The former Middlebury man has been prominent in Colorado molitics for some years, particularly so as a friend of Colonel Roosevelt.

The election of Redfield Proctor, son of the late senator of the same name and brother of the late Governor Fletch er D.

It looks as if Vermont were going to be left severely alone by the national campaigners from now to November clec tion. What's ermont's four votes worth anyway? Apparently little. How ever, the situation in the electoral col lege may so frame itself that four votes would be very powerful. But the cam paigners cannot be blamed for directing most of their energy to the big states with tremendous first influence in the doctoral college. Massachusetts, as well as Vermont has her towns the officials of which are careless about protecting town records, and so Massachusetts enacted a law em powering a "state commissioner of public records" to go about the state and see that the towns place their records in safes and keep them in good condition. It would be more than one man's work to go about Vermont and see that a law of like nature was lived up. to, because of the present careless methods of many town officials. It was rather careless oversight to per mit a crowd to get the upper hands to the extent that a woman is shoved off jthe steamboat to death, as happened at St. Albans last evening. Pocsibly the stationing of attendants at proper posi tions might have averted the second fa tality of the day from the steamer Chateaugay. Furthermore, it is hard to see 'why the woman should have beeu drowned inasmuch as the boat was at Edock at the time the woman was wded overboard. There must have n a few men aboard, even if there v-were not enough boat attendants. A Republican View of Democrats. Well! Well! There are to be three Democrats in the state Senate, accord ing to the latest returns. They are Dodds from Grand Isle, Roy from Cale donia and Pollard from Windsor. We do not apprehend any serious result from that, as somehow the Democrats who do get into the Vermont state Sen ate are always remarkably good men. Take the Senate of 1008, for instance, it had two Democrats and there were none better than Kennedy of Chittenden and Wright of Grand Isle. They were strictly attentive to business and laid asiih partisanship whenever the good of the state demanded it. We honest ly believe that a little Democratic leav en injected in every Vermont Senate wouldn't be a bad idea. Morrisville News and Citizen, With an entering class of one hundred 0snd two this year and the prospects of a (Still larger class next year, Rpaulding high school is making strides in num (beta equal to any high school 5n the tate unless it be Rutland high school. Already the registration in the Barre Institution is nearly as large as that of the high school in Burlington, and at the present rate of increase it promises to equal the enrollment there within a few years. Moreover, a high scholas tic standard has been maintained at Rpaulding, as shown by continued cer tification by the New England college entrance board for the longest period allowed.

Come to the campus for a good game. Political Data Scarce. With the Maine and Vermont elec tions passed into history practically all the valuable political straws in the shape of stato elections are behind us, and we shall be compelled to grope our way in the dark till the vote on November 5 settles it all. It is true that Arkan sas voted on the same day as did Maine, but the result there was with out national significance, the Democrats sweeping up the state in the usual de cisive fashion; and it ig true that (ieorgia will vote early next month, but nothing politically startling can be ex pected from this southern state. Tractically all our data is at hand in the shape of the Vermont and Maine figures. In Vermont, where the Progressives made a fight with their own ticket, the old-time Repub lican plurality was cut to about 6000, while in Maine, where the Progres sives united with the regudar Repub licans, the Democrats were defeated by a narrow margin. V hen the Repub licans unite and carry Maine in Septem ber by less than 4000 plurality, it is left to the imagination to speculate how large the Democratic plurality may be in November with the two factions of the Republican party at each other's throat. The Maine election is different from of almost any other state. There was no Bull .Moose state ticket, but there will be one in practically all the rest of the states, and wherever the third party ticket is presented the chances of Democratic success on the state and national tickets are greatly heightened. In each state the tangle is peculiar and shaped ny local conditions and by parti san expediency, but in general the Dem acratio party is the beneficiary of the division among the Republicans.

Colorado, the Most Diverse River in the United States. For some 2,000 miles the great Colo rado river sweeps diagonally across the country from the high mountain plateau ot Wyoming and Colorado to the farth est southwest corner of the United States. Jhe basin drained of the Colo rado and its tributaries is about 300, 0(H) square miles in area, and much of it is of high industrial and scenic in terest. The Colorado basin comprises twodis tinct portions, i The lower third is but little above the level of the sea, though here and there in it ranges of mountains rise to elevations of 2,000 to fl.OOO feet. This part of the valley is bounded on the north by a line of cliffs which pre sent a hold, and in many places, vertt cal step of hundreds or thousands of feet to the tableland above. The upper two-thirds of the basin stands from 4,000 to 8.000 feet above sea level and is bordered on the east, west, and north by ranges of snow-clad mountains, which attain altitudes ranging from 8,000 to 14.000 feet. Through this plateau the Colorado and its tributaries have cut narrow gorges or canyons in which they flow at almost inaccessible depths. At points where lateral streams enter, the canyons are broken by narrow trans verse valleys. The whole upper basin of the Colorado Is traversed by a laby rinth of these csnyons, many of which are dry during the greater portion of the year and carry water only during the melting of snow and the brief pe riods of the autumnal and spring rains. T it. 1 - . - . 1 ' i in me lower portion me river strong ly resembles the Nile, having annual floods which distribute silt over the ad joining lands and render them as fer tile as those in the historic valley of North Africa. The Colorado and its tributaries sre not only of value for irrigation, but, descending in steep chan nels, they present abundant opportuni ties for the development of water pow er. Power has been developed at a few points, but the resources of the Colorado basin are in this respect yet practically untouched. Nearly one-fourth of the bovs and girls who enter the American public schools reach the high school. This, too, when the work of the high school of to-day is almost as advsnced as that of the college of a few years ago. HIS OCCUPATION By ALBERT KENYON Kg Iamson& Hubbard Best in America Leaders for Fall and Winter FOR SALE BY THE FRANK McWHORTER CO, Barre, Vermont. I was stopping In London at Char ing Cross and one afternoon strolled down Whitehall street and entered Green park at the horse guards. Pass ing on through the park to Queen Vic toria's statue opposite ' Buckingham palace, I stopped to look at It I no ticed a man standing before the statue admiring It and asked blm if he could tell any Interesting facts concerning Its construction; He replied very dv lily and proved quite an admirable guide. lie was evidently not a polish ed gentleman, for he was plainly dress ed and misapplied bis h's. " 'Er majesty," be said, "was one of the finest .sovereigns that hever lived. Ill was In tbe public service under 'er for many years, durln which 'er peo ple was 'appier than at bany other reign, though that 'appiness was con tinued under the reign of 'er gracious son King Hedwnrd." "Did your office bring you In con tact at all with tbe queen?" "HI! In contact with 'er majesty! Not fll, air. HI never sor 'er except when she was bout hairing. But HI was hoften at court, sir." "Had you duties there?" "No, sir. Hi 'ad no duties at court; HI went there to see the notables. sir." "I presume you could give bits of In formation about many royal and emi nent people." Yes. iilr. nrve seen Justice B. often and Justice W. occasionally and many of tbe most hemlnent barristers in England." Army magnates?" No, sir. HI never met any army officer. But ni once met a parson. HI 'ad official connection with him, sir." "In what way?" "He was doln' too much talkln'. Very windy, sir. HI shut it off. 1 was puzzled to make tbe fellow out At this bit of information I fan cied he might tie a sergeant-at-arms or something of tbe kind attached to the residence of some one of the royalties, employed to see that no inadmissible, person forced his way Into the palace, - or if such succeeded In getting there It was his duty to put him out Hav- ing been brought tip to consider ques tions as to people's business ill bred. 1 refrained from asking blm what his office was. I let blm go on talking, ex pecting that in time he would state It of his own accord. "It must have taken a fine lot o' cordage to swing that block o' marble into position, sir." said my companion. I don't think they used much cord age for the purpose," I replied. "It would only be needed to guide the mass as it was swung on to its pedes tab They doubtless used chains to lift It" "Now, really, ni wouldn't 'a' thought that Hi should think ropes would be better. Chains might break the marble, elr. They couldn't 'ave swung It by tbe neck, could they, sir?" I looked at tbe man surprised. He appeared to be sufficiently Intelligent to know that a statue would not be lifted on to its pedestal by the neck. "What made you think tbey would do It In that way?" I asked. "Well, sir, it seems to me the nat ural way to lift a person." With rope? You would break a living person'a neck by lifting him that way." But you wouldn't break a marble person's neck." "I think you would in this case. The figure la solid and must weigh a great many tons." "And it wouldn't do, sir-not in this case to awing 'er most gracious majes ty even In marble by tbe neck. 'Earen forbid that hany of 'er loyal subjects should think o' auch a thing! Hit's rank treason, sir." ne seemed terribly shocked. I waa not especially edified by this latter part of bla chat though before he got on to It be talked sensibly enongb, so I tbanked blm for tbe In formation be bad given me and start ed away, saying: "I expect to go to court soon. Per haps I shall bare some attention from you there In your official capacity." "HI shall try to make It as easy as possible for you, sir. If you do." This added so largely to my curios ity that I was sorry I had not asked him tbe nature of tbe position be held. He was not a gentleman and likely would not bare taken It amiss. How ever, it was now too late. Some time after this I was walking on Oxford street with my friend Har grave, a Londoner, when I saw ap proaching the man I had met at tbe statue, It did not occur to me to ask Hargrare who be was. for I bad no idea be would know. "Do you see this man coming?" ask ed Hargrave. "Yes." "He's Calcraft, the hangman." Then I understood tbe man's refer ences to court that be meant a legal court Instead of a royal court I ap preciated his horror as a loyal subject f Queen Victoria at the Iden of put ting a rope around bis sovereign's neck even In stone. But I was more especially affected at the remembrance of his words when I told him I ex pected to go to court Boon, "HI shall try to make it as easy as poBstble for you. sir." Since that memorable interview t have never passed Queen Victoria's statue without thinking of Calcraft and tbe court to which he belonged. Sale of Sweaters Begins Friday and Saturday until sold.
