Too bad to spoil outlaw Beardsley's

Mayor-elect Curley, who committed
the egregious sin of , writing the phrase

thinking), may still have another eye for

-The total circulation of books from
the Aldrich public library during the
past year indicates that the institution
is increasing in its influence in Barre
and vicinity, and the efforts made to ac
commodate the public show that the li
brary continues to merit the support of
the community. The library is a busy
place at all hours when opened to the
public.
War has been declared right down in
Claremont, N. II. war against the pro
posed organization of labor. In these
days of comparative freedom to organize
along such lines, it is odd enough to note
the fiery antagonism which has developed
in Claremont against one particular or
ganizer who was virtually ordered out
of town and never to return. Doubtless
the merchants of Claremont would feel
within their rights if they should form
an organization for mutual betterment.
The name of Ginn has been so long
associated With textbooks that to speak
of it conjures up in the minds of the
youth of the country some great obstacle
to perfect happiness. Edwin Ginn has
been known far and wide as one of the
great publishers of textbooks, perhaps
the greatest for a considerable part of
the time in which Ginn & Co. has been
engaged in the business, and he founded
a concern which is so wen established
that it is likely to continue an impor
tant career along its line, still using the
name of the man who started it and who
has just passed away at Winchester,
Mass.

The success which met the efforts of
the state of New. York to sell $M,000,00n
bonds yesterday indicates that the mar
ket for that particular kind of security
is coming back rather strongly. The
bids from the great banking and brok
erage concerns o the eastern section of
the country ranged much above par and
the highest bid will give the state some
thing like $3,000,000 premium on the en
tire award. However, there is not so
much encouragement to prospective float
' ers of municipal . bonds, as the market
for them is not nearly as strong; and
municipalities would do well to delay
such issues for a little longer period if
such delay is at all possible. State
bonds, especially of such a state ss New
York, are a different proposition even
in the face of a slack market in general.

FOR HOUSEHOLD ECONOMY.
The suggestion was made recently by
State Commissioner of Weights and
Measures Hugh Henry of Chester that
correct housekeeping demands that test
ed scales and measures be as much a
part of the household as any other uten
sil of accepted use. Such a suggestion
seems to be very reasonable, too, be-
cause in the first instance it will enable
the. housekeeper to determine whether
she is receiving accurate weights and
measures from the storekeepers and, in
the second place, it will enable her to
fix accurately just the amounts required
in cooking, for instance, thus perhaps
saving some of the ingredients which
are now being wasted by the guesswork
method of cooking. Of the two, the for
mer is of far greater consequence, as it
is known that storekeepers' scales are
apt to vary, in some cases by design,
in others by accident. On taking pack
ages home the housekeeper can readily
determine by tested scales whether or
not she has received full measure for
money expended, and if discrepancy
against her is found she can readily'find
redress by calling the matter to the at
tention of the storekeeper, who, no
doubt, will le willing to make up the
difference. By the same token, if she
should learn that the merchant was
cheating himself she might find it in her
heart to go to him and tell him of the
unfortunate condition. But however that
be, it would certainly be a protection
to the housekeeper to have a set of test
ed scales, as well as tested measures, in
her house.
employment in Canada and that there
are as many as 100,000 people who are
forced to be idle at a time when employ
ment is perhaps the most needed. Of
course, Sir Wilfrid's pessimism must be
ascribed in part to political manoeuver-
ing against the party in power; but it
is nevertheless true that Canada is un'
dergoing a period of depression the like
of which has not been teen in a long
time. However, there is no need for
serious alarm in the' neighboring coun
try, for Canada is young and is blessed
with considerable vitality and . at the
same time has abundant natural re
sources, combined with advantageous lo
cation. Moreover, it is so closely al
lied (though rarely is it admitted) with
the United States and the progress of
this country that it is bound to reflect
conditions to be found south of the
boundary line. And the prospects of
the United State are not looked upon
with anything but confidence. Canada,
therefore, is likely soon to feel the re
bound from its present poor'condition.

serious as to be very depressing to those
who are students of the situation there.
There is a great deal of enforced idle
ness in various parts of the Dominion,
while the cost of living has risen in
something like the same degree as in
the United States. In the course of a

for the first time in about a quarter of
a century there is such a thing as non-

Bitter fate is pursuing Battiste So
maeni, a Barre granite cutter who re

for an indefinite visit. The latest mis

character of his former troubles. So
maeni, while engaged at his trade in
this city, was left practically without
vision as the result of two accidents in
granite plants. The accidents happened
within the space of a year and his trip
to his native land was for the purpose
of restoration of sight through the me-
auim or rest, tie arrived in his native
land with a capital of some $400. This
principal, according to informatitvn re
ceived by friends nt Montpelier, was de-
fnmiic'i in a oanic ot his native town.
According to the correspondence received.
the day following the bank failed and
Somaeni was the loser of A40n.
