Earn -Save "Industry cam money, and pru dence plana what to do with one's earnings." Experience teaches us that it is the part of prudence to save a portion of one's, earn ings for that proverbial "rainy day," which, sooner or later, comes to most of us. Experience teaches us, also, that it is the part of wisdom to deposit those savings in a well-managed savings institu tion, where they will earn FOUR per cent, interest. It is said that in 1820 there were only 9,000 savings de positors in the whole United States, wmle to-day, less than a century later, there are more than 9,000,000 savings depositors in this country. There must be a reason for this wonderful increase peo ple have learned that if they would have they must first SAVE. If others have learned this lesson and profited by it, you can do the same if you will. We shall be glad to have you open an account in the "GRANITE" at 4 per cent, in terest.

Moreover, it is a warning to every city and town. Lieut. Gov. Walsh of Massachusetts took the pole position away from Gov. toss and any Democrat who may hanker after the governorship job in the Bay state. Meanwhile the publio of the neighboring state professes to be anx ious to know in what party Foss will land when he comes down. If Gov. Fletcher wants to be United States senator, it is up to him to say so.

During the past three months it has cost the city of Rutland the sum of $000 to maintain quarantine for con tagious diseases; but in the end that probably will be found to be much cheaper than Burlington's plan of let ting smallpox patients and suspects have We are glad to see that the secretary of state has seen the need of cancelling some of his Chautauqua dates in order to return to Washington to act on some important matters coming before tho state department. We should be more glad if he should decide to cancel his re maining dates and stay on the job or within easy call. The longest bis chief, Pies. Wilson, hag seen fit to stay away from Washington, was a single week spent in New England and he then hast ened back to Washington to meet pos sible emergencies. It is almost as im portant that the secretary of state be there also, especially as some trying matters are to come up for decision. OCCASIONAL DEATHS OF FRIED MANN PATIENTS. " The deaths reported occasionally oi persons who have taken the Friedmann treatmunt for tuberculosis need not act as unduly depressive to those other Friedmann patients, because those pa tients may rest assured that so far as known, the Friedmann treatment has no deleterious effect so far as hastening the progress of tuberculosis is concerned and that they have the fighting chance for recovery just the same es all others who may have contracted the disease. As a matter of fact, too much stress is being put on the deaths of those per sons who took the treatment for tuber culosis and who failed, for some reason or other, to gain the benefit which was hoped for. Of course, there seems to be greater cause for magnifying the items inasmuch as the Friedmann treatment ha been so prominently before the pub lic and has been in dispute to such marked extent, but there is always the possibility that the treatment waa tak en too late in the cases of those who have since died, which minimizes the im portance of the items. Remembering that fact it possibly is unjust to infer that the treatment is a failure, which surely has not been proven. But in any event, those patients who have taken the treatment never for a moment should lose their courage, having in mind that many persons have recovered from tu berculosis and have lived many years in such health as to permit them to en- gnge in open-air occupations and earn their livelihood and their family's maintenance. fresh manure. Knowing thin, the farmer ought to make quick disposal of the munure pile.

It is plainly to the farmer's interest to break up tlie happy Homes ! of the stable fly if he wants to keep I his own happy home intact. It is more of a choice than at first seems apparent. 1 here ought to be no question of what the farmer would rather have, his or the fly's home. Kt.

A fatal accident which recently oc curred in an Orleans county saw mill was such as may happen at any time in almost any saw mill without the shadow of excuse. There can be no excuse for allowing heavy belts to run with no guard to prevent them from flying wild when thev break. No mill-owner should take such a chance with the lives of those in his employ, or with his own. How many heavy mill belts are running without proper protection in Lamoille county? Morrisville News 4 Citizen. Approximately $10,000,000 of Product ! Were Exported There During the Fiscal Year 1913, Govern ment Bureau Reports. j Washington, D. C, July 18. Russia is now the largest purchaser of Ameri can agricultural machinery. Export fig ures of the bureau of foreign and do mestic commerce, of the department of commerce, indicate that approximately $10,000,000 worth of agricultural imple ments were exported from the United States to Russia in the fiscal year 1913, against $7,000,000 worth to Canada, 6 500,000 to Argentina, $4,000,000 to Ger man v, $3,500,000 to France, $1,000,000 to the 'United Kingdom, and $1,000,000 to Australia and New Zealand. The ex ports to Russia exceed those of any earlier year and form practically one fourth of the total value of the exports of this class of American manufactures. Even these figures do not, apparently, represent all of the American agricul tural implements entering Russia, since her latest official figures (those of the calendar year 1911) show importations of practically $12,000,000 worth of Amer ican agricultural machinery, or nearly 50 per cent, more than our own exports of this class of merchandise to Russia in that year. Russian official figures of imports "from the United States are usually much larger than the official fig ures of exports from the United States to that country, this difference being presumably due, in great part, to the inclusion in the Russian figures of cer tain American products purchased in Europe countries. The growth in exports of American agricultural machinery to Russia i more rapid, proportionately, than that to oth er parts of the world. Our total ex ports of agricultural implements in Wi were $21,000,000 and, in 1012 approxi mately $42,000,000, having practically doubled in that period. Our exports of agricultural implements to Ruswa in 11)03 were $3,500,000, and in 1913 ap proximately $10,000,000, having practi cally trebled in that period, liver one half of this total goes to Wack, sea ports of Russia, approximately $1,000,000 worth to Asiatic Russia, and the re mainder to Russia on thR Baltic. Mowers and reapers form about one htlf of the total value of our agricul tural implements exported. For the clev- eu months of the fiscal year 1913, for which detailed information is available, the figures of total exports to all coun tr'es were: Mowers and reapers, approxi mately $20,000,000; plows and cultiva tors, $7,000,000; threshers, $4,500,000; planters and seeders, $11,250,000; and hay rakes and tedders, $750,000. The total value of American agricultural im- lements exported t ten-vear intervals as been: In 1913. $42,000,000; in 1003. $21,000,000; in 1H!3, $4,HM000; in 18R3 $3,750,000; in 1S73, $2,500,000; and in J803, less than $1,000,000.

Make Out Your List and Come to This Store. More Salespeople This Week GRANITEVILLE Stable Fly Indicted. Infantile paralysis is a terrible dis ease with which medical science is not yet able to cope. If the victim survives the attack he is generally partially par alyzed for life. The disease is worse in every way than typhoid. Vermont has had local epidemics of the disease and often the cause of the outbreak has been a subject of speculation. The government is soon to publish a pamphlet which puts the blame for this disease on the stable fly. People have been educated up to a campaign against the house fly, but it now develops that, deadly as it is, it has a more deadly competitor in the stable variety. Some of the unexplainable outbreaks of infan tile paralysis are put on the stable fly, which makes its home around animals and in the filth about barns. This resi dent of the barnyard is a real blood sucker and one bite of an infantile par alysis patient makes it ready to spread the disease to whatever individual or individuals may fall a victim to its thirst. Country people are in greater danger from this source than those who live in the city, which explains why infan tile paralysis mav have its start on a farm before reaching the more congested districts. The one way to overcome the disease, since there is no preventive ser um which may be injected, aa in typhoid cases, is to get rid of the fly. But it is no easv task to do this. The stable fly is not lured to its death by sweet things, as is its house-living cousin. It wants blood of animals or humans, and is con. tent with nothing else. So if it can't be done away with after it has come into existence", it must be disposed of be fore it "has begun its deadly career. This disposition mav be accomplished bv doing awav with the potential birth- places, the stanie ny is oom in nun, in the manure pile that is too often left standing near the barn door.
