A Political Correction.
A typographical error last week
made The Caledonian say just what
it did not intend to say in the tdito-
rial headed "Political Talk." ; The edi
torial as printed said "Sen. Dilling
ham's closest friends understood be
is not to be a candidate for re-election."
What we wrote and wanted to say was:
sen. Dillingham s closest friends do
not understand he is not to be a can
didate for re-election." As printed the
editorial does an injustice to Sen. Dil
lingham because what talk we have
heard indicates that the senator is to
bo a candidate for re-election. St.

St. Johnsbury, Jan. 4. Pending a trial
bv lury the county court was occupied a
greater part of Thursday in disposing of
criminal matters.
Two boys about the ages of nineteen
and twenty years, John Brown of Rye-
gate and Albert Colby of Lyndon, were
informed against by the state s attorney
for having broken into the store of
Frank Brown of Ryegate and taken
some articles. It appeared that the boys
broke in to secure some mileages to gut
on to another place. They were sent
enced to a term in state's prison for not
less than one nor more than two years.
Antoine Sullivan, William Druce and
Joseph Jennings were arraigned on the
charge of having burglarized the cigar
store of Robert Cobb and the drug store
of Flint brothers of St. Johnsbury last
November. It appeared that Druce had
already served a prison sentence In Con
necticut. He is twenty-four years of
age, Sullivan is twenty-one and Jennings
seventeen. Although these parties were
known to be somewhat under the in
fluence of liijuor at that time, the plan)
had a semblance of well -worked out le
slgn and that the end sought was money.
A few pipes were taken from Cobb's
when it was found that there was no
money and comparatively little damage
done. The Flint Brothers break was not
completed, the parties having been
scared away.
The respondents were arrested at Fair
banks village next morning and have

Campbell appeared for the respondent.
They pleaded guilty and were sentenced

Vermont history was repeated in the

Fletcher must feel a good deal alike.
New Hampshire, let it be stated here,
Las taken steps to see that legislative
election of a governor shall not be neces
sary hereafter as plurality of votes is
to elect rather than majority. Vermont,
in this matter, might well follow the
example of New Hampshire and not be
the loser thereby. With three parties'
somewhat near the same sie, it will be
necessary often to refer the election to i
the legislatre, thus making it possible
to thwart the sentiment of the great
est part of the voters in case the legis
lature should happen to be opposite in

Why the Lingerie Dresses Did Not Sell.
The following story is taken from an
article in the January Woman's Homo
Companion entitled "Behind the Scene
at the Bargain Sole:"
"An official in one of Chicago's biggest
stores, high up in the councils of his
firm, conceived the idea one dav of elim
inating all reference to comparative
values in the ensuing week's advertis
ing of stores. '
' "X will warrant, said he in answer
to the vigorous protest of the advertis
ing man in charge, ' will warrant that
the reputation of our house is so strong
that if we announce a sale of women's
lingerie dresses at 111.75, and pronounce
them absolutely the best value at the
price in town, we will sell them just as
fast as though we put a specific value
on them in dollars and cents."
" 'How much are they worth?' asked
the advertising man,
" 'The' cot us, wholesale, about nine
dollars; ordinarily they would retail at
$13 or S10.
" 'Because the people have lost faith ,
in the values recently put out in this
town by reason of the reckless boosting
of original values on the part of the
smaller fry: and I am firmly convinced,
if we simply say that these are extra
ordinary values, backed by our ac
knowledged record for truthful and
square dealing, that it will serve us
" 'You can't sell them even at nine dol
lars if you don't quote an actual saving
in so many dollars and cent,' was thy
last word of the 'ad.' man."
We have just received a carload of Mattresses and have
another car on the way, and to make room will make the
following low prices for cash only.
