JINGLES AND Jests I Now that it has secured a settled pol icy, the" New York, New Haven &. Hart ford railroad is expected to get back onto its feet, even though that policy was forced upon it. Nothing so disturbs the progress and prosperity of an en terprise as uncertainty. So for months the New Haven system has been exist ing merely from day o day, so to apeak, while awaiting the outcome of the nego tiations being carried on by its agents with the government representatives. With the acceptance of agreement be tween the conferring . parties, the rail road may from this time proceed to re habilitate itself as'the great volume of business it receives will make possible under careful management. It ought to Be the dawning of a better day for this sorely tried railroad. New Version. " Mother "Tommy, what was the gold en text at Sunday school to-day T" Tommy (who lives in Alaska) "Let me see.

Brooklyn Citizen. His Idea of It. ' "George Washington," read the small boy from his history, "was born Feb. 22 1732 A. D." " "What does' 'A, IV Stand for?" in quired the teacher. The small boy pondered. "I don't ex actly know," he hesitated. "After dark, I guess." Exchange. The total deposits in Vermont savings banks at the close of the last official re port, were $89,543,081.78, showing a gain of about a million and one-half dollars in six months. It is a good sign that over one-third of the amount represent ed by the gain was devoted to the up building of Vermont instead of being sent out of the state. The Waterbury Record says: "The fact is that Mr. Dillingham's supporters are not concerned in the least over what would seem on' the face a determined effort to make his campaign for re-election a strenuous one.'' We trust that the attitude does not presuppose that Mr. Dillingham is Biire of re-election and that, therefore, work is not needed. The presupposition is wrong. The conduct of colleges is not a wild scramble ol competition, we are remind ed, by the generous contributions of rfuipment and apparatus by five higher institutions to Wellesley college in the time of its great need following the r00,000 fire that destroyed the main col lege building and itsvcontents. It was an indication of co-operation that serves to remind that after all the purpose of all colleges is to disseminate informa tion, not merely for one institution to build itself up at the possible expense of some other institution. Competition in colleges is getting to be a feature of n past era. THE ULSTER SITUATION, It is almost inconceivable, that civil war will break out in the British Isles over the proposal to enforce home rule pn Ireland and, indeed, the reports which come from many sections of the domain indicate that the people are not greatly excited over the present war-like move ments and they refuse to believe blood shed will follow. The precautions which the British government has made in send ing troops into the troubled district of Ulstter are taken to mean nothing more than demonstrations calculated to show, that the British government is deter mined to stand by the amended proposi tion presented to the Ulster men and is ready to cope with riots which might break out through efforts of the more excitable of the two sides to the discus sion. Both sides have pointed to the Civil war In the United States in justi fication of their movements, but they have failed to recall the terrible sacri fices of human life which followed the outbreak of that warfare between coun trymen. Contemplation of those terrible sacrifices is likely to halt both sides be fore actual warfare is resorted to and blood is spilled. Forjot the Password. An old cavalry horse was in the shafts and the officer was in a hurry. Tak ing the reins from the driver, lie shout ed, "Charge!" and away the animal gal loped, stopping dead when he readied the barracks at the word "Halt!" The next morning an Englishman wanted to catch the boat from the quay, and the driver said, ".Sure, your lienor, there ain't no horse in ould Ireland who can go so fast." He cracked his whip and shouted "Chargel" and away the horse went. Nearing the quay, Pat yelled: "Jump for heaven's aake. I've forgotten the password!" N. V. Globe. - Not In His Place. While traveling on a steamboat, a no torious card-sharper, who wished to get into the good graces of a clergyman who was on board, said to the reverend gentleman: "I should very much like to hear one of your sermons, sir." "Well," replied the clergyman, "you could have heard me last .Sunday if you had been where you should have been." "Where was that, thenf "In the county jail," was the answer. Philadelphia Star.

The Hardwick academy basketball team disputes the Spaulding hiirh school's right to claim the inter- Kcholastic basketball championship of A'ermont for the season of 1U13-14, and bases its right of recognition in fighting for this title, not on the number of games won and loot but from the fact that it has played most of the teams that Spaulding has met and others equally as strong and has been nearly as successful, even defeating Burlington high twice, once on its own floor, a feat that no other preparatory scliool team in Vermont has been able to accomplish this winter. These facts alone entitle Hardwick academy a chance to try for the honor, and to that end issues the following challenge through the columns of The Times I hereby challenge the Spaulding high school basketball team of Barre for a series of two games, one to be played in riardwick and the other in Barre and if a third game is necessary same to be played on neutral floor. This chal lenge is based on Montpelier high's stand in refusing to play Ppaulding high a third game on a neutral floor, Hard wick academy offering to play the for mer team anytime for the second game between these two teams, thus culmi nating M. H. S., which allows Hardwick academy's right for a try at the bunting. (Signed) Joe H. Cordelia, captain II. A. V"' TALK OF THE TOWN CURRENT COMMENT I A report from the Kellogg-Hubbard library at Montpelier states that the average Sunday afternoon attendance at the reading room of the library dur ing the year 1013 was 74 persons, which was considerably more than in any pre vious year. The increased attendance shows that the opportunity is being ap preciated more and more and it gives promise that much good can be accom plished in a community by having the reading room open during a few hours on Sunday afternoon. The opportunity Is particularly appreciated by the visit ors in a community, as the usual amuse ment places are closed on Sunday and the visitors at hotels and boardinir- bouses have no place to go after the church services. The transfer of the old Boston Jour nal from the hands of Matthew Hale to parties who announce that they will run the paper Independently adds another bit of evidence to the conviction that a newspaper run purely as a party organ falls short of its mission and is not like ly to be a success from all standpoint. The Journal has been confessedly run as a Progressive party organ and has devoted a great deal of its energies toj the advancement of that party's inter ests during the past few months under the Hale management. To dispose of the newspaper after this short experi ment as a purely party organ is an ad mission that the project has fallen short of the expectations of its promoters. The BoBton Journal has seen some rather violent changes in its long career but Activities in the Small Community. Readers of this newspaper, we take it, must be impressed by the evidence it piles up from day to day, from week to week, and from month to month of the existence in the United States of a great number of smaller communities, as regards population, trade and wealth, that are entitled to rank with the larg er communities as regards every form of intelligent activity. It is often neces sary to brim; into prominence the ma terial side of these communities that the interest of the average reader may be arrested. With hardly an exception they have interesting stories to tell of growth in size, of industrial progress, of business expansion, of municipal achieve ments along material lines, that warrant local pride. One after another they em phasize the fact that the present is a period of great material prosperity. But if the stories ended here they could leave behind them, for right-thinking people only unfavorable and disappoint ing impressions. Fortunately,' they do not end here. They go on, rather, and with greater warmth, tel! what the communities are doing in education, in art, in the ad vancement of civics, in the promotion of ethics, in the uplifting of popular taste and the spreading of popular culture. The really striking thing about these t-tories is the revelation of conditions, nrtf in ldnlatml inflfanfi.. liur in fTATi.r.l mat. regaroicss oi wnai pessimuas say. establish beyond doubt, the survival and growth throughout the land of whole-! some intellectual and moral forces andi influences. The activities of the hundreds of smaller communities of the United States give flat contradiction to the re-j cently advanced theory that decadence . has set in within these borders.
