In the February Woman's Home Com panion appears a department called "The Exchange" in which contributors make various practical household suggestions. Following is n Indiana contributor's advice tor lengthening the uneven legs of tables and chairs: Tack a piece of cork to the short leg, using small tacks and driving them well into the wood. They will sink way in and so will not scratch the floor and the cork itself will act like a rubber pad. eliminating that disagreeable scraping sound." A Healthy, Happy Wife is the greatest .inspiration a man can Mexico City, Feb. 10. Exchange on New York Saturday at' Mexico City closed at 3 for 1 and a short time pre viously touched 3.10. It is explained that the increase was not due to the demand of concerns having foreign pay ments to meet so much as to the fact that the shippers of henequcn, who have heretofore distributed their exchange business, have opened an ollice of their own, thus creating something like a corner. Bankers believe the exchange rates will increase still further. Cer tain diplomats have been unofficially ad vised that the government is planning to issue fiat fractional currency and also impose a special tax on ail investments in the federal district. Chief interest in the military opera tions centers in plans of the war de partment for a campaign around Tor reon. A federal victory of minor im portance is rerted from Tepic on the west coast and 'a skirmish lias .occurred near San Angel, a suburb of the capital, in which the rebels were forced to take flight. ' In spite of the protest made by Nel son O'Shaiighnessy, American charge d'affaires, and of the instructions of the Mexican foreign office to desist from at tacks on President Wilson, El Imparcial, under a three-column first-page head line; '"The word of Wilson lacks honor as does lie hiniBelf," comments on the recognition by the United States of the new Peruvian government , within four days after the success of the revolt. This was done, the newspaper says, in face of the declaration from the White House on March II. 1013, that the pur pose of the I'nited States is to deny sympathy to all revolutionary govern ments. From this the conclusion is drawn that "Yankee processes work only along the line of evil passions." With similar prominence, El Imparcial publishes an account of the alleged fail ure of 150 banks in the southern I'nited States because of President Wilson's and Secretary of State Bryan's "iniquitous Mexican policy." An effort is made by the newspaper to show that President Wilson's policy is disapproved by the great majority of people in the i'nited States and by practically all those in the-southern states.

Mayer, bead of the department of anat omy in the Stanford medical school of Stanford university, went on record Saturday as saying that eugenics would never make a perfect man or a perfect woman. .Natures laws in tne mating have and the life of the family, yet how:of nmn ami woman are immutable." ihe many homes in this fair land are blight ed by the ill health of the wife and mother! It may 1ms backaches, headaches, the tortures of a displacement, or so..ie ail ment peculiar to her sex which makes life a burden. Kverr woman in this condition should rdy upon Lvdia K. I'inkham's Ycgetcble Compound, made from, roots and herbs, to restore her to health and happirIws. Advt. he said in an address, "is inferior superior to the other. 1 am in svtn thy with the eugenic movement,' he said, "and breeding methods cannot be applied to the human race." "Neither sex or puthv with tlie euge said, "but it never can be brought to the point its foremost advocates would have us believe. The mere'selection of per fect types will not necessarily breed perfect types nor accomplish any good for the human race." STATE AND NATION TO JOIN. In Protection of Forests from Destruc tion by Fire. The rfport of a conference on forest fire protection by the various states has just, been issued by the federal depart ment of agriculture. This conference, was attended by representatives from r.U the New England states,' New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Vir ginia,'" West Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington. The meeting was called to discuss the section of the Weeks law which author izes eo-operation between the federal government and the states in protect ing from lire forests situated on the watersheds of navigable stnytms. The conference considered not only the de tails of carrying out the law, but the results which the law has accomplished and the promise which it gives of future accomplishment. ( The various subjects discussed includ ed patrol work, co-operation with pri vate owners of timbcrland, and eo-operation with other protective agencies and with railroads. The conference is said to have established beyond a doubt the great value of tire lookout stations and towers, and the imperative need ot telephone- communication, as well as other permanent construction work, to Inoluda roads and trails. In all of these activ ities the value of co-operation between the various agencies was emphasized, and ' it was brought out that efficiency could be raised and expenses lowered, when, state, nation, lumber companies, and pri vate individuals work together in ac cordance with a plan evolved by all, It was shown that the disposal ,of the slash left after lumbering means the elimination of a great source of danger' from fires. In some cases it was shown that it was best to dispose of this ma terial by burning it under supervision when there was little danger from fire. In other cases it was proved to be suffi cient to lop the branches, so that all would lie close to the ground and decay quickly. In the discussion of actual lire fighting it was pointed out that the secret of the suppression and control of fires in the woods is not essentially different from that in the city, and lies in having a trained and dependable fire-fighting or ganization. EAST MONTPELIER Till further notice, services in the brick church will begin at 11 a. ra., in stead of 2 p. m. Subject of next Pun day's sermon, "The Narrow Way," Re member the change of time and come, everybody. nwiwo 12 sn 14 Fifteen years ago this month the D. A. Perry Real Estate Agency was established, with the sole assets of two chairs, one desk, a disposition to work, and the confi dence of our acquaintances. - The first year was a hard one, and every year since we have found it necessary to work but we have grown. 1913 was our banner year; over 6,000 acres of farm property being sold through us, aggregating about $203,560.00, besides a large volume of town and city property, stocks of goods, etc., etc., making our sales for the year amount to considerably above 300,000.00. Our six sub-agents deserve no small credit for their part in making this the most successful year in our history. We wish to thank all our patrons for their confidence in us, and we shall aim to merit their future business. And, while we do not expect to do all the business which is done in our line inthis section, we shall appreciate any and all business which you may see fit to give us, and heartily pledge ourselves and our fifteen years' ex perience to handle it in such a way as to bring the best possible results. Good salesmanship does not consist-wholly in making a sale of property regardless of other conditions. If the buyer and seller always knew where to locate each other, there would be no use for the third party, but here is where the offices of the real estate man come in; getting the buyer and seller together on terms advantageous to both parties. A satisfied customer is the best advertisement any business can have. With our large and constantly growing list of farm and other properties, extending, as it does, over the various sections of the state, the prospective purchaser has little difficulty in making a selection, as to price and location. And, vyith our sub-agents working with us, as well as our connections in Boston and the West, together with our extensive advertising (having expended more than $10,000.00 in the past 10 or 12 years), we are able to reach a large number of people. In fact, last year nearly one-half of our farm buyers came from outside the state. Only a few weeks ago we sold a $5,000.00 farm to a purchaser from Montana who became interested in Vermont farm property through one of our catalogs, which we send into nearly every state in the union, as well as Canada, MexicoItaly, Switzerland, Scotland, and England. We propose to make "Real Estate a Quick Asset" our slogan for 1914. t)oe wants to sell his farm: Jones wants to buy: we get Doe and Jones together. Perhaps Jones lives hundreds of miles from Doe, but our advertising, our sub-agents, or possibly he is on our waiting list of buyers; we find him and the deal is closed even before your neighbors know you want to.sell.
