Answer i Nearly half a million packages were handled by the Boston postofflee in the first fifteen days of the new regime. One of Vermont' regrets at the death of Julia C. R.

SIX THERNO?ETERS, NEEDED IN EVERY I 1 By the close of the present week the legislature should have made deep in roads into that grist of 234 bills re maining to be disposed of. Let the committees work assiduously and be pre pared to make report on the bills early in the week. Such a program is all that can save the legislature from the condition of lingering long Into the month of February when its work should have been completed a month or rupre sooner. Tn requiring that Brandt, whom he released from a thirty-year term in pris on, refrain from going on the stage to tell of his (Brandt's) recent criminal career, Governor Rulzer of New York softened the effect of the pardon upon the general public immeasurably. There was a fear , that Brandt might inflict himself on the long-suffering public to that extent, having listened to the im portunities of some stage manager who loves money more than decency. bound to remain. However, the large number of such structures may have blinded the observor to the trend of modern road-building, which, of course, includes the construction of bridges. The trend is toward the abolishing of the enclosed type of bridges and the sub stituting of structures which at least furnish the users of the highways the greatest degree of safety as far as abil ity to see ahead is concerned; and in many instances steel or iron bridges are replacing the wooden bridges as saf er for travel and less hazardous from the standpoint of the fire risk. In all parts of the state the towns are putting in open-sided bridges just as rapidly as the condition of the old structures seems to warrant and the financial standing of the towns will permit. Much of this change of heart away from the old-fashioned wooden bridge has come in recent years, and it is due as much to the automobile as to any other sin gle agency, perhaps far more. The in creasing: number of motor vehicles and the greater frequency of their appear ance on tlie iitgiiways nas impressed upon the towns the necessity for safe guarding the highways as much as pos sible, and that includes the desirability of keeping the roads as open as pos sible so that the longest possible vision is assured. Therefore, the observation in the contemporary was rather inaccur ate. Moreover, it was unfortunate in its comparison between wooden bridges and maple sugar outfits as being fixtures in Vermont because, while the trend has been away from wooden bridges, there has been a halting in the trend away from maple sugar making and conse- i quently in the holding of maple sugar outfits. For several years the maple sugar industry was markedly on the de cline, indicating that the retention of the "outfits" was far from certain; but lately through frequent prodding and the alhvement of a steadily growing mar ket, the owners of sugar orchards hare been resuming their operations each spring, so that the maple sugar "out fit" promised once more to be a fixture. We hope it will remain a fixture of Vermont and at the same time we re joice that the wooden, blind road bridge SHIPS AND SEALING-WAX "The time has come," the Walrus said.

President-elect Wilson and Governor Fletcher seem to be of one mind when it comes to eliminating the inaugural ball. It is a common-sense view the brother governors tak and the fact that the Washington affair would mean a cost of $85,000 in pension bureau wages alone seems to justify the next execu tive's suggestion. Meanwhile, Vermont women who missed the gala event at Montpelier may offer condolences to the wives of numerous senators and representatives.

Anyway, it isn't so serious as it might be, for we presume the po tatoes are nesrly all moved ere this, and the backwardness of the winter has pre vented great lumbering operations, which precludes the necessity for moving much lumber at the present time.

In referring to the covered wooden road bridgvs in Vermont, a writer in the Boston Transcript makes the fol lowing observation: "The covered bridge Is just as much a fixture in Vermont as are maple sugar outfits."

R. Dorr, the ever-young, genuine and strong poet, who died at her home in Rutland, Vt., yesterday in her HHth vear, will never lose her honor- sble place among the best writers of New England. She was endowed with unusual literary capacity, and had been writing since her childhood. There was nothing in her of the mere versifier, but there was always thought to bo ex pressed, nd her diction was delicate, al ways felicitous, and often strikingly powerful. The strength of Mrs. Dorr's work grew with the years, and she gave in her writing no hint of waning pow ers to the last. Hers wss a most at tractive personality, which nowhere shone brighter than in her home. While omitting nothing which contributed to the pleasure of husband and family, Mrs. Dorr lived a large and free individual life in her writings. Middlebury col lege never did a finer thing than in con ferrinjr the degree of doctor of letters upon Mrs. I)orr. It is not easy to think of a more distinguished citiaen of Ver mont thsn Mrs. Dorr csme to be she wlis incomparably first in her state in the literary world. Troubles came into her life, a to all the rest of as, but no hint of them ever tinned her work, which was resonant with spiritual qual ity and a serene phihphy that never faltered. She took life in a large way, and the world wss enriched by her high service to it. She rase ont in the ripe ness of year with riwts of friends and admirers t" mourn her departure.
