We refer to the opportunity to lop off some valueless expenditures which now go with the av erage presidential campaign. For in stance, the national committees of the three leading parties in the present cam paign might dispense with the practice of sending highly colored letters broad cast over the country letter which few read and even less take any stock 111. As a rule, these letters are hurled into the waste basket, having received only a cursory glance from the recipient j thus they axe of no value to the candi dates, and the distribution of them in countless quantities results in no good menta that can be made in Vermont farms. During the year ending October 1, a Colchester farmer, who tills 1iI5 acres of land, sold products aggregating a lit tle over Iffi.OlMl, or to be exact M,8H0. That bare statement ought to iinprrH every reader as abundant demonstration of what can be aiTomplished in Vermont by a combination of brains and soil. The farmer in question did not have a college education to help him In nl work, anil so it follows as a matter of rourso that every farmer can profit by his example, The lirst fact we desire to emphasize in this connection is that our success ful farmer keens fifty cows on his MS acres, and this is one key to bis sue cess. The second fact of importance is that ne raised Via tons of sweet corn from 22 acres of laud, which he sold for ten dollars a ton, aggregating the handsome sum of $1,250. Kight here let us emphasize the fact that some farmers claim they can not profitably produce sweet corn for can liing pm'iKxen, but inasmuch as the can ning factory pays $10 a ton for 350 pounds of green corn and returns the cob and husks to the farmer, the latter real ly sells his corn to good advantage, to sav nothing of the feed. Our successful farmer has two silos full of cut corn stalks and another filled with cobs and hunks, and lis figures that tins is a very profitable prop, consider ing the fact that he has all his feed in addition to his $1,230 received from the factory. He sells his milk in bulk to those who retail it in Winooski and he also has a handsome income from the sale of potatoes, hogs and calves. If 3,000 worth of product can he sold from this farm of 1(15 acres, the same thins can be accomplished with other farms of equal size or a much can be done in proportion. When these possibilities confront the young men of Vermont, why go west or south or anywhere else? Uuurlington Free Press.

The small num ber of uncollected poll taxes in Ver jnont cities and towns look bad enough on the records until a kindly board of civil authority sweeps them off in their entirety.

Mr. George W. Perkins describes his occupation as that of a "retired work man. The order of retired workmen is new to American politics. If we follow the testimony of the leading member of the order we shall learn that this re tired citizen waves clenched lists, as severates, shouts, denies with heat, dis putes with anger, and keeps only such memorandums 01 past transactions as it is convenient and wise to retain. That is going some. What more would he do if he. were still on the active listt The order of retired workmen holds, moreover, that the conduct of the In ternational Harvester company is not only legal but highly moral. from all of which we come to the conclusion that a retired workman must follow lines somewhat Bimilar to those adopted by the big and busy interests.

Now Ivers Whitney Adams, a native of the town and a wealthy Boston manu facturer, has bestowed his gift. It is worth mentioning. It is an example to other givers. This because of the character, rather than the size of the gift. What Mr. Adams has provided is not a church, or a school, or a library, or a hospital, or a puoiie hall, it is a utilitarian water supply drawn from a neighboring lake and sent by pipes through all parts of Ashburnham Center and South Ashburnham. Benefactors of the public have been educated to give while they live they do not so often "drape their charities in the shadows of the tomb." But scarcely more than a beginning has been made toward making the giving more intimate in its relation to human lives. Nothing is more conventional and imitative than philanthropy. Witness the over-endowment of our educational institutions something that led a leading educator not long ago to exclaim that the best way to serve msnv of the colleges and universities of America would be to give them nothing for ten vesrs.
