Sec our window display. 4 1 uio utate or Vermont is already in the throes of legislation, and one of the most important bills yet brought before the law-making body is one drawn by S. H. Jackson of the Vermont state public service commission relative to the employment of women and children in manufacturing and mechanical establish ments. It is modeled hi general terms upon the act which went into effect in this state at the beginning of the pres ent year and provides that no woman and no child under eighteen years of age snail be employed in laboring in a man ufacturing or mechanical establishment more than ten hours any one day or more than fiftv-four hours a week. If there is a special demand upon the labor' ing loree because of teasonal require merits, these hours may be extended to fifty-eight in a week, provided that 'the whole number in a year shall not exceed an average of fifty-four a week, exclu sive of Sundays and holidays. This is a humane measure and the state can hardly justify itself if it shirks the responsibility of the protec tion called for in its proposed require ments. It has also the approval of the social service commission of the Episco pal diocese of Vermont, which has been very active and thorough in the inves tigation of existing conditions and prop erly insisted that something substantial should be done through legislation for their correction. The report of the find ings of this commission, which is entitled to full credence, is that in the textile mills especially, of a number of towns and cities, ten hours a day constitute a day's work and sixtv hours a week as a regular schedule. Hut often it hap pens that there is a "rush," when men, women and children work twelve and thirteen hours a day for days and weeks consecutively. In some cases, also, this steady de mand has no cessation on Jhe Sabbath day and that intensifies the strain upon women and children at tho growing c riod of their lives. One case is men tioned, not we trust entirely representa. tive of the system, where a girl of fif teen was employed thirteen and a half hours a day for a month. At the end of such an experience, her boss came to her bouse between 2 and 3 o'clock on .Sunday morning and requested her to get up aim come to work. Mie refused and was immediately discharged, and such an alternative has to be faced by those who decline to accept all the burdens that may be put upon them, for there is no law upon the statute books of the state that makes these establishments re sponsible, for such excessive demands. It is rather surprising that Vermont has delayed taking proper action upon this situation for so long a time. She has a very intelligent population and one that we might suppose would be in advance of many states in caring for the interests of the classes referred to in the bill. Possibly the extent to which her population is of a rural character has raused a failure to realize what goes on in tne textile industries. Hut the commission lias furnished the facts, and it is now up to the state,' law-makers to make the logical and proper use of them. Xew Kngland, certainly, ought not to be lacking with respect to proper law for the protection of women and children, and not onlv should such laws lie adopted, but they should alo be en forced, Something that does not always happen even when the statute books read all right. For such a purpose it is de sirable that state inspectors should be appointed, as local oflicials are some time too much inclined to overlook in fractions. HoMon Transcript.

Other gifts of linen and silver by people in town were also pre sented. Refreshments of cake, coffee and grapes were served, after which the crowd returned to the hall for more miii-ic by the orchestra, and a few fig ures were danced, then bidding the hap py couple long life, happiness and pros perity, all dispersed to their several homes, having had a very pleasant even ing.
