Mills of Milton were driving on the ice from Milton Boro to St. Albans Bay, the team went into a crack in the ice. One of the ani mals was rescued by a rope thrown around its neck, but the other drowned. It was valued at about $100. As the for ward end of the sleigh went into the crack Mrs. Mills was thrown out of the other end. Mr. Mills went into the water up to his neck in rescuing the horse. Mrs. Frank Rose of Rutland has a . lemon plant, on which is growing an ex traordinarily large lemon. It resembles one of the largest oranges in the market, though it is somewhat lighter in color, even more so than the lemons grown in the usual climate. The lemon is 12 in ches in circumference at the smallest part and 14 inches around lengthwise. There are several blossoms and buds on the tree, which is not two feet high. Miss Mnrv Martin, who has lust fin ished work for the Estey Organ Co., Brattleboro, had been employed 31 years in the filing department and for several years had been forewoman of that department She gives up the work on account of a nervous trouble.

When they fail to do this, the kidneys are weak. Backache and other kidney ills may follow; Help the kidneys do their work. Use Doan's Kidney Pills the tested kidney remedy. Barre people endorse their worth. Mrs. Emma Gay, 8 Harring ton street, Barre, Vt., says: "We have used Doan's Kidney Fills for many years and we have always found them reliable. Mv kidneys were weak and I had pains in my back. I used Doan's Kidney Pills and they helped me greatly." Mrs. Gay is only one of many Barre people who have grateful ly endorsed Doan s Kidney Jf His. If your back aches if your kid neys bother you, don't simply ask for a kidney remedy ask distinctly for Doan's Kidney Pills, the same that Mrs. E.

Purpose la To Better the Quality and Profit From Vermont Butter. Burlington, March 5. The butter ex hibit, one of the features of the newly established extension service of the Uni versity of Vermont and state college of agriculture, is for the purpose of better ing the quality and profit from Vermont butter. Buttermakcrs, both creamery and dairy, are invited to send in samples of butter quarterly accompanying the butter with a method blank furnished by the extension service. The butter is scored and criticized by the judges and a letter written to each, giving his lndivia nal scores, also criticisms, and suggested means by which improvements may be made. The figures for the first educational butter scoring exhibit held January 23, have been tabulated, furnishing some very interesting data regarding the qual ity and methods used in the manufac ture of Vermont butter. Orrin Bent of Boston. A..A. Borland, professor of dairy ing at the state agricultural college, and VV. E. Ayers, state creamery inspector, were the judges. The average of the 28 butters exhibited were as follows: Ferfect Average Score. .Score. Score on flavor. ....... 45 58.8 Score on body 25 24.8 Score on color. 15 14.8 Score on salt 10 9.7 Score on package 5 5.0 Total , ..100 93.1 The average salt content was found to be three and eight-tenths per cent and moisture 11.9 per cent. The' high est score of 97.2 was made on a sample sent from a creamery where the but termaker practiced more than ordinary care in grading and ripening his cream. A more complete summary of scores and methods will be published later. The next exhibit will lie April 23. All interested should write Thomas Bradlee, Director of the Extension Service, for further information. M. D'S. ON FOREIGN TOUR. Personally Conducted Party To Visit Europe Next Summer.

A year ago the legislature of Vermont bade the governor appoint a commission to survey the educational system of the state. Without delay this commission asked the Carnecrie Foundation to make the desired study and offer plans for bettering the f schools, the foundation has just issued its report a well knit document of more than 200 large page's. While the report abounds in counsels of perfection, even on affairs so hope less as the wall decorations in college students' rooms, it particularly urges three sharp changes: in the first place, a revised course of study in the grades and high schools; next, a centred admin istration for all the schools as parts of a single system; then -full freedom of school and college from political entan glement; training teachers for the ele mentary schools. These general advices are self approv ing. And most of the narrower recom mendations they ground will find but few opponents. Vermont for herself has come to see the harm in making small towns and even their districts the sov ereign units of school administration; in subsidizing rival colleges with yearly grants, competitively teased for; in maintaining normal schools not equipped for a normal school's work. Moreover, like Maine and . New Hampshire, Ver mont has eome to see that education as now directed favors the migration of her abler sons and daughters to otiier states. And so it will doubtless hear gladly the foundation's advice to weld the system under one strong commis sioner aided bv skilled supervisors; to give the course of study in the lower schools a new stress on farming; to drop the normal schools at Castleton and Johnson, replacing . them with one good training school; to cut off, as soon as permissible, all state aid to the Uni versity of Vermont, Miudlcbury college and Norwich university. i5ut these judicious counsels are not the whole story. However at the first look the state may like the report, every vermonter who believes in education as the door of opportunity should ponder with care and only the foundation's well defined conclusions but still more its vague and undiscussed assumptions. Here and there the report takes for granted what every old-school New Eng lander condemns at sight. The most loyal Vermonter from Pownal to Canaan would never dream of saying in cold blood, keep the boys and girls in the state by schooling them only for the cow-barn and the lumber camp. Yet the foundation says the same thing in a sotter wording; it advises the er monters to "educate the sons and daugh ters of Vermont for service in Vermont." Those who know the Green Mountain state know what that service would mean. With no larger cities, with a total population less than that of Cin cinnati, with resources almost wholly in pastures and meadow, forest and quarry, Vermont has little need for lawyers and classics, little scope for bankers of captains of industry; for its own service it needs sheep raisers and dairy men, foresters and farmers. If Vermont Bhould adopt all the foundation's views and advices, if for instance it should start the ordinary high school course down at the seventh grade and stop it two years short of readiness for college, the ambitious boy who wants an education not for the walls of an upland valley but for the whole world's work,, who wants a train ing for the widest service to his kind would better choose his birthplace in a state that still aims its public education upward.
