LANGLEY, Publi.her SATURDAY, MAY 17, '9'3- The Concord, N. H., granite firm which advertise! Harro granit ahott 1 a fine dm crimination. Th Kr .Irthnsbnrv Commercial club hM adopted the "paid aeereUry" idea but apparently at the aahiry $300 the aecretary i not to devote hi whole time to booming the town. It would be difficult to estimate the value of to-day' rain in dollar and rents, but the cropa will prove that U is worth a great deal. Of lesser mo ment U the value of the water in put ting down temporarily the dust nuisance in country roads. The Times is pleaded to be informed by a correspondent in another column that Solon Richmond of Brettleboro, who has been appointed a member of .the Vermont state board of conciliation and arbitration, ia & trade unionist, hav ing been interested in furthering the la bor movement in Brattlcboro. We had been informed previously that Mr. Rich mond wae a superintendent in the Etey factory, and it seisms from the corre apondent'a atateroent that he is a fore, man. Just at this time when Brattleboro is striving to get a new federal building to bouse, the postoffice and the United State court, It ia fortunate that ax Congressman Kittridge Haskins ia the postmaster, because he ha been through the process so many times while in Washington that he ought to be able to unravel some of the red tape. And, by the way, it ought to be stated that the growing importance of the organ town demands a large appropriation and, consequently, a large and well-equipped building. Better to put the money in Brattleboro than to "plant" it in some 2,000 town in the middle West. BPS HAIL TO THE NEW! tj New Spring Suits, $15 to $35.

P. $221,000.00 HOLDEN BR ALE Y TOWN Open Monday Evenings from 7 to 8 r 1 CURRENT COMMENT T 4 The disapproval of high buildings in the city of Springlleld, Maw., finds its reflection in a. new protest against the erection of a large mausoleum in the Springfield cemetery on the ground that It would overshadow the more modest monuments in it particular section oi the cemetery. The mausoleum is pro posed in memory of Chester W. Chapln, builder of the Boston & Albany railroad and prominent in transportation affairs in Massachusetts. The erection of such a memorial as proposed would be a dis tinct addition to the architectural fea tures of the Springfield cemetery and would prove to be one of the attractions of an already attractive city, while the claim that other memorials in its im mediate vicinity would be overshadowed is so weak as to be a. negligible force against the proposed movement. The objection to a broken skyline in the busi ness section of a city as when some tall structure rears ita head above the others does not apply to a cemetery because in a street uniformity is sought, while in a cemetery a variation in the de Signs adds to beauty of the whole, pro Tided, of course, the individual designs be beautiful. WORKING OF TAX LAW ILLUS TRATED. One of the earliest returns from tax listing is furnished by the town of Enos burg and the working of the section of the law abolishing offsets is to be studied in consequence. Krora the report of the Enosburg listers we learn that while the real estate valuation showed a slight decrease from causes which are explained by The Standard of that town, the per sonal property appraisal is three and one-half times as large as it was in the preceding year, or $3(90,560 as against $117365 for tha year 1912. Inasmuch as personal property valuations in Ver mont were wont to be in the decreasing scale for Tears, probably in Enosburir as well as in the other towns and cities, it may be taken for granted that the great increase this year waa due solely to the abolishing of offsets. As a result the Enosburg grand list has jumped by $1,112.50, thus making a. bisis for taxa tion on which it ought to be possible to get along on a greatly reduced tax rate. Surely, the adding to the bur den of taxation by removal of offsets ought to be balanced in part by the lev aening of the rate of taxation, just as should follow in every Vermont city and town where personal property valu ation Jumps becatioe of the inability to offset it for debts owing. And every community is likrly to have an increased grand list a the result of the admin istration of the new law. Don't Knock Boost Many- a candidate for political office lias killed hinwelt by abusing hm op poiient. the average man has such a stroll? sense of fair play that be will in stinctively side with the one who is be ing attacked. It is the old principle of taking the part of the under dog in the fight. The same rule applies to the monu mental business. It ia the poorest kind of policy for any dealer to run down his competitors, and those who have tried it in their advertising, or in state ments made by themselves or their sales men to possible customer find it work to their disadvantage. Many a pros pect would never know much about the competitor if his informant stuck strict ly to the legitimate setting forth of tlie merits of his own stock and work, but the moment to began to run down his competitor, it immediately set the prospect to thinking that perhaps the other men's work was the best. The monumental man who endeavors to establish his own claims for orders by running down hia competitors for gets tbis trait in the human mind makes such a proceeding dangerous and does nothing to 4ielp his own chancea for getting the order. Far better to say nothing at all about your competitor, a friend'lv word for him on your part will do much to establish confidence in your self. Or if, on the other hand, you do not know him, simply say so. It may be that the competitor ia one of the kind who bids low to obtain the work, and then "skina" it to make a profit. Siimplv say you do not care to figure against him, as you work strictly accord ing to specifications, ana present vour proofs t to satisfaction given. Your probability of winning out by such a course is much greater than if you had knocked the other man. From Granite, Marble A Bronze.

Last week we published in the news columns something about what the fed eral government is doing for the im provement of Vermont fishing. But this is not the only work of the federal gov ernment in behalf of the state. It is en gaped in breeding horse for military service and in Vermont and New Hamp shire it is breeding (Morgan horses for this purpose. The headquarters for New England in thin work is at the Govern ment Morgan Horse Earm located in the town of Woy bridge. But to give the farmers of a wider section opportunity to use standard bred stallions as aires there have been good Morgan stallions located for the season at Northfield. Plainfield. West aKirlee and Hartland Four Corners in eVrmont, and at Woods- ville, Oxfordville and West Claremont in New Hampshire. - The farmers must furnish aound marea with a square trotting gait and if they v.ill give the government an option on the colt at $150 when three year old the service of the stallion is free. If the government does not wih to take the rolt no charge will be made for the aerv ice. But if the farmer thinks the colt worth more than $150 and decides to keep it he must pay a fee of $25 for ma ture stallions and a smaller fee for the younger horses. Thi is a most liberal opportunity for the farmers of thete two states to im prove the standard of horsea. It will cost them nothing unless they raise euch pood cnlts they do not care to part with them for $150 and they have the oppor tunitv to s'e whether the colt is more valuable or not before they are asreaaed the fee. Fair plav compels us to aay that the people of Vermont are indebted to .Towph Batiell of Middlebury for the stimulus m tne norse raising industry lecaii be presented to the federal gov ernment tne farm now ne4 as the head quarter of the New England hor breed ing district. Mad it not been for this peneroti gilt ermont would not have been selected as headquarters. Every person who is solicitous for the welfare and sure of Vermont farmers will al ways feel grateful to Mr. Battel for his generous and broad-minded liberality St. JohnUmrv Caledonian.
