Ground will be broken within a few weeks for a large building whieh is to house the Rutland Foundry & Machine company, a new concern to be incorpor ated for the purpose of doing general machine work. It will be managed by Charles K. Davis of Rutland. The Rut land Business Men's association was in strumental in bringing the company to Rutland. The interment of the body of Rev. II. M. Douglass, a former pastor of the Baptist church at West Haven, took place at that place Sunday morning. He served the West Haven church for 17 years, but for three years had been pas tor at Bernardstown, Mass., where he died after a brief illness. Mr. Douglass was well known in Baptist circles and was a graduate of Colgate university. In order that he might rendered himself more useful to the people he acquired a conversational use of the French, Ger man, Italian, Spanish and Swedish lan guages. The rapidity with which he mastered a foreign language was phe nomenal. MAY EXHIBIT VT. LIVESTOCK. But Owners Must Pay AU Expenses to - San Francisco Exhibition. At a recent meeting of the Vermont Dairymen's association, held in Rutland January 6 to 8, Messrs. T. 0. Bronson of East Hardwick, W. K. Carter of Rut land, C. F. Smith of Morrisville and J. L. Hills of Burlington, a committee ap pointed bv the management of the Pnn-' ama-Paciflc exposition company for the purpose of assembling a Vermont . live' stock and agricultural exhibit for the ban Francisco exposition, met and or ganized. The state has made no appro priation for this purpose and the com mittee has no funds. It stands, however, ready if any citizen calls upon it to do what it can by way of advice. er monters who may wish to exhibit live stock or farm products at San Francisco may correspond with any of the mem bers of the committee. They should clearly understand, however, that the committee assumes no responsibility whatsoever, that it has no funds, that the state in no wise stands back of it and that all expenses must be met by the persons desiring to make exhibits WIL6 BE UNUSUAL EVENT.

United States Geological Survey Issues Report Describing Deposits Near Mel rose. Last year R. W. Richards, of the Cnfted States geological survey, visited a niter deposit on Camp Creek, near Melrose, Mont., said to have been discov ered by F. C. Moore, of Melrose. While the deposit may not prove of economic importance, it is interesting in that it affords another example of a nitrate de posit in a region having a fairly abund ant rainfall. The value of the deposit cannot be safely estimated from the data which have been collected. Further explora tion is needed to determine whether or not the potash and soda nitrates are in cluded in the limestone back from the outcrop. As the average soluble por tion of the samples collected by Mr. Richards is only about one to five per cent, it appears that about 35 tons of rock would have to be treated to obtain one ton of the crude salts. This quan tity refined would yield about 440 pounds of soda niter and about 790 pounds of potash niter, the former being at pres ent worth about $24 and the latter about $41, making a gross yield of about $1.80 er ton of rock treated. Better results might be obtained by treating the loose rock fragments which lie at the base of the cliffs, but such ' material is very meager in amount. CASTOR I A Per Iifeata and Ckildrem.

Albert II. Spence, Jr., pastor of the Church of the Messiah, Montpelier, commends Dr. Mark W. Richardson s book on "The Control of Tuberculosis" as a most valuable addition to the wide spread movement to stamp out tuber culosis. He writes as follows: Through your columns I should like to call the attention of the public to a valuable pamphlet entitled, J. he con trol of Tuberculosis,' written by Dr. Mark W. Richardson, secretary of the Massachusetts state board of health. "The several sections deal with such subjects as 'What is Tuberculosis?,' How Does Infection Occur r liow Lan One Protect Himself Against It?'

Rising & Nelson Sought Delivery of $2,180.39 fiom Bankrupt Concern. Rutland, Feb. 16. Ernest H. O'Brien of this city, referee in bankruptcy, has denied the petition of Rising & Kelson of Pawlet for an order that the receiver for the bankrupt Vermont Slate com pnny of Granville, N. Y., turn over to the petitioners slate to the value of $2, 180.30, alleged to be due them on a con tract. There was a hearing on the mat ter January 20, G. W. Piatt of this city appearing as counsel for the petitioners and S. E. Everts and Clarence Parker of Granville for the receiver and the bankdupt. In October the Rising & Kelson concern made an arrangement with the Vermont Slate company to furnish them slate to the value of $5,000, Rising & Kelson giving a note for the amount. At the time the Vermont company ceased to do business Kovember 5, slate to the value of about $2,800 had been delivered and it was to get the balance that the petition, just denied, was brought. The referee found that no actual title to the slate had been pnhscd and that the slate due Rising & Kelson had not been segregated from the rest of the slate at the quarry. ( SLATE WORKER INJURED. J.

DILLON and 4 Bolster Block Barre, VC THE BUSINESS FARMER'S CORNER PROFITABLE AND FRIENDLY How a Suburbanite Made $500 E. K. PARKINSON. A friend of mine had half an acre, with a house and barn, in the suburbs, where his mother lived with him, but he was of the kind who enjoy experiments and was always wondering how he could increase a small income. One day he noticed a pigeon fly into the barn through a broken window, and curiosity prompted him to go upstairs, where he discovered the pigeon on a rafter near a nest on which sat its mate, mat provea his inspiration, and those two birds were the starting point of a business which to-day nets about $300 annually, and this is the simple way be went about it: The barn, 20x30 feet, was divided up stairs into six pens, 10x8l3 feet, a three foot walk between, while downstairs was a pen, 10x10 feet. Each pen had a big window, and, the long way of the barn being north and south, the birds had plenty of sunshine. The partitions between the pens were boards, while par titions on the alley were of wire. The nesting places were of boards twelve inches wide (with parallel cross cleats nailed on, nine inches apart) set up richt twelve inches apart, with edges agniust the partition nailed top and bot tom. These boards extended from floor to roof, and when in position boards twelve inches square were cut and laid on the cleats for floors for nest boxes, making little homes for the pigeons. Nests and Feeding. Each pen had two sets of boxes, one against each partition, so every pair of birds had two nests, for pigeons start laving before squabs are out of the nest. No perches were allowed, the birds rest ing in their own boxes, and outside eacn pen had a flyway for them to exercise in. The breed of pigeons chosen was the Homer, decidedly the best on the mar ket for squab raising, and the feeds used were sifted cracked corn, Canada peas, wheat, German millet, Kaffir corn and hemp. On the floor of the pens a bushel of clean sand was spread, and a box divided into three partitions was kept constantly filled with fine table Bait, cracked oyster shells and ground char coal. At tf o'clock in the morning a ra tion consisting of equal parts of cracked corn, wheat and peas, well mixed, was fed at the rate of six pints to each pen of fifty pairs of birds. The afternoon ration consisted or cracKea corn, nanir corn, millet and peas in equal parts. Every pen was provided with small bathtubs, for pigeons are fond of bath ing. GAS ENGINES FOR SUBURBAN AND COUNTRY USE They Wash the Dishes and Mix Bread. F. WEBSTER BRADY, Mechanical Engineer. "If dreams came true, we should fly," was a very popular saying until recent ly. But the dreams of the country dweller have been of wings to lift the burden of heavy .muscular effort in agri cultural operations and for a hundred noiseless hands to do the monotonous drudgeries of country housekeeping. Ihe network of suburban telephone lines drove away the dragon of islation, and then the gas engine brought the mo torcycle and the automobile, which united the city and country dwellers, adding both proht and pleasure to the lives ot each. Plowing Without Horses. But it is on the gas engine that goes on to the farm to stay that the farmer builds his hopes of dreams realized. The tractor and the big gas engine do the plowing, harrowing, seeding, harvesting, threshing, hauling and grinding. 1 he lit tie engine does the chores, sprays the or chard, makes the cider and picks the potato bugs, and, glory to its invention, it furnishes the muids to relieve mother and the girls! With the little gas engine it is easily possible for the country home to be made healthier and happier than the city home. The ideal equipment for the house and barn is a small gas engine with a dynamo and a storage battery. This outfit will furnish the water sup ply, light the buildings, do the washing, churning, house cleaning (wet or dry), milk the cows, run the separator, mix the dough, wash the dishes, run the sewing machine, cool the house in sum mer and make the ice cream without the use of ice. The little gas engine solves the servant girl problem and the hired man problem by doing away with the necessity for either of these helpers. In selecting the gas engine, get one that will use the cheapest fuel oil that is available in your vicinity. Do not buy an engine because it may be the cheap est one on the market, but buy from a reliable maker who has a permanently established business and who will make good guarantees and keep them prompt ly Without treating his customers with petty indignities. There are air-cooled and water-cooled gas engines. The lat ter are made with either a storage water tank or with an open hopper jacket. Learn well the subject of gas enginery before purchasing an outfit, for by so doing you will not only save money, but forestall any disagreeable annoy ances in operating the new thing.

Washington, D. C Feb. 16. The de partment of agriculture baa taken a les son from the commercial book publish ers and hereafter will announce its pub lications in such a way that the public will know at once whether it is a bul letin designed for popular reading, or information for professional use or of service only to a special class of manu facturers or to a specific geographical section. Heretofore the brief titles used in the monthly list of publications and on the bulletins themselves, it has been found, were misleading to many people. As a result lay readers would ask for bulletins that could be of service only to skilled veterinarians or scientists, or would write from the West for a bul letin dealing with practical matters but in a way applicable only to certain sec tions in the South or East. 'In other cases farmers would write for bulletins designed wholly for manufacturers or shippers, or technical workers would re quest material intended wholly for popu lar reading. As a result of this system of titles the recipients of bulletins in many cases were disappointed and eith er found the bulletins too technical for use or else entirely inapplicable to the section in which they were engaged in agriculture. To avoid this waste of circulation and make certain that the bulletins go di rectly to those to whom they will be of service, the department has inaug urated a new plan whereby in every list the title of the bulletin will be accom panied by a brief statement telling ac curately the nature of its material, the class of reader for which intended, and the section of the country to which the information is applicable. To make dou bly sure that each recipient of a bul letin will understand clearly the class of reader for which it is intended, this brief description will be repeated at the foot of the title page of each publica tion. are curable.

Often Called to Make Great Sacrifice and Enter Danger. Do you know of any occupation that demands and receives so much from those engaged in it as the newspaper business? We admit we do not. The church requires a great deal from the clergy," but poverty is, perhaps, the most serious sacrifice it asks. The practice of medicine at times compels physicians to risk their lives in minister' ing to the needs of the sick, but . because Of the perteetion ot methods anil tlie discoveries made in the prevention and cure of disease danger has been reduced almost to a negligible quantity. Journalism, on the other hand, insists that those who engage in it shall be come its slaves and be ready to sacrifice health, comfort and even life itself. This is a strong statement, but is it not true? The man engaged upon a great metro politan newspaper, or even upon the dailies of smaller cities, is always on duty. There is not an hour in the twenty-four when he may not be summoned to the oflice to meet an emergency that has arisen since he left. He can make no engagement that is not subject to cancellation on a few minutes' notice. He is never sure that on the night he goes to the - theatre with his wife or sweetheart he may not be compelled to leave in the midst of the most interest ing part of the play to take an im portant assignment. The reporter, is of course, the one who is called upon to face real danger. Often he takes his life in hand when he at tempts to climb the ice-covered rope ladder of a belated Atlantic steamship in the lower bay on a wild winter's night; when he visits a plague infested ship to learn the story of its voyage; when he engages in trailing a murderer through the dark and dangerous pas sages of tumbled-down buildings in the lower i.ast hide, or among the moun tains of freight piled in seeming dis order upon unlighted wharves; when he accompanies the police in the raids upon gambling houses or the dens of thieves. Ihe reporter or correspondent who loves his work, and most of them do, rarely think of themselves when on an as signment, but always of the paper .they represent. And so they endure the! icy blasts of winter, the scorching heat ot a burning summer sun, the drenciurrg storms, the dangers of gun tests, with an enthusiasm and self-denial that is unknown in other lines of business. They go without food, without sleep, without rest and do it willingly all for the paper they represent. They take pride in their work and, although what they write does not carry their name, they are content. as long a the paper gets the glory. The pay does not begin to be com mensurate with the service they render, while their expenses are higher than those of men iu other professions. Even the frugal among them find difficulty in saving enough money or in carrying enough insurance to take care of their families in ease of their death. The most of theiu lack business foresight. Thev give everything in them to their employers, and on dying, perhaps the pnper does not scud a wreath .to grace the casket. The reporter stands in much the same position as a soldier always ready to sacrifice himself and all that belongs to him for the news; but the soldier can feel that a grateful country will care for his wife and children. It does some times seem to us that those who have to share in the profits they help to create ought in some way to be freed from anxious thoughts about the future of dependents for whom every law of humanity should require them to pro vide.
