Boston Grand Opera ' Singers Coming
Augmented by some new world-famed
artists, with an. entirely new and novel
program of concert and opera, and with
an added feature in the form of a beau
tiful bevy of ballet dancers from the
Boston opera house, the splendid aggre
gation of Boston grand opera singers
which appeared here during the pust
season, will pay us another visit at the
opera house, ' Barre, Monday evening,
April 27.
Brilliant as were the artists the last
time, and delightful as the program pre
sented then was, the coming engagement
holds forth some new artists of sveii'
great brilliancy, and promises a pro
gram which for variety and novelty, has
never been surpassed anywhere, iind
rarely equalled even in the largest citks,
like l?oston and New York.
Five of last season's great company
ever heard in Boston. Another splendid
addition to the company is M. Jjtngi
Mainiero, a great golden-voiced 'tenor,
who brought to this country triumpns
from nearly all the big European opera
houses. -
. A feature this time which is going to
delight others beside the music lovers,
is the petit ballet of solo dancers from
the Boston opera house. These young
ladies were selected for their remarkable
beauty as well as for their terpsichorean
ability.. They will contribute . to tho
program the bewitching "Dance of the
Hours," from Gioconda and also a por
tion of Copelia. This novelty has won
unstinted praise in every city thus far
visited. . ... ... ...... ... . .
The musical part of the program will
be composed as before of opera and
concert. Eight big operatic numbers, in
cluding the duet from "Forza del des
tino," made famous by Caruso and Scot
tie, the thrilling duet from "Andre
Chewier," and other equally well known conference.

You know you do not. You read or do some
thing else that keeps your eyes busy ; you
work your eyes until you go to bed. That is
why sq many have strained eyes and finally
other eye troubles that ' threaten partial or
total blindness. Eyeglasses an merely

scription which has benefited the eyes of so
many may work equal wonders for you. Use
it a short time. Would you like your eye
troubles to disappear as if by magic T Try
this prescription: Go to the nearest wide
awake drug store and get a bottle of Optons
tablets; fill a two-ounce bottle with water,
drop in one tablet ant allow it to thoroughly
dissolve. With the liquid bathe the eyes two
to four times daily. Just note how quickly

How to Regain Strength After a
Severe Attack
With so much grippe prevalent this
winter, a few words of advice regarding
its cause and treatment will not be out
of place.
Grippe is an infectious disease easily
taken when the system is in a tired
or run-down condition.
The best means of prevention is to
keep' the blood in good healthy condi
tion, and if the system gets into a-'weak,
run-down condition, take mol, our de
licious cod liver and iron tonic.
A lady from Long Branch, N. J., says:
(lirppe left me in a nervous, weakened,
run-down condition. After taking three
bottles of Vinol, I am better and strong
er than I have been for years, and I
cheerfullv recommend Vinol to all who
have suffered from the grippe and need
strength." (Name furnished on request.)
e have never sola in our store such
a valuable strengtn creator ana neaun
restorer for the convalescent, the weak
and run-down as Vinol, and your money
It - Applies to Vermont Told
Forestry Department.
Although Sweden is one of the most
extensive exporters of timber, and the
market conditions there are not nearly
as good as those prevailing in most parts
of Europe, the torestry worK is particu
larly interesting to Americans because
of this very fact, that market conditions
are more like our own than in Germany
and France. Much of the land was for
merly very badly deforested, but since
l7 the government has been steadily
purchasing forest areas of the country,
making state forests amounting to
about twelve million .acres, (an area
twice as large as Vermont). The effi
ciency of the fire protective service is
shown from the fact, that of this total
area less than five hundred acres were
burned over in 1008.
About 47 per cent, of the population
of Sweden is engaged in the practice of
agriculture, but like the farmers of
Vermont, they make a considerable part
of their income by working in the for
ests during the long winters. The wood
industries alone employ 67,000 work
men. Owing to the great amount of
snow most of the lumbering is done on
sleds, as in northern New England. .
The chief trees of Sweden are Scotch
pine and Norway spruce, and in the
southern part there is also considerable
beech and oak. Birch and aspen are also
present. -Sweden exports to other Jt,uro
pean countries, mostly to Great Britain
about $o4,000,000 worth of lumber and
wood annually. The government nn
poses an export duty on this, part of
which is used in the maintainance of the
forestry department. Compared to those
of the German states, the state forests
are of very low value, and the income
is proportionally small. However, the
net revenue has , increased during the
last thirty years from $300,000 to
While the state forests are not as in
teresting as those of some of the other
countries, many of. the Swedish commu
nities have become famous for their mu
nicipal, or so-called "Spar" forests. The
returns from these are used for the pay
ment of taxes for the maintainance of
schools, hospitals, and other public pur
poses. J hey nave also furnished an ex
ample for the present forest protective
movement, which has lately gained much
headway. ' .
By a law passed in 1905, provision was
made for county conservation boards;
these boards to have control of private
forests, the law does not prescribe in
letail what is to, be done, but leaves it
to the discretion of the board. The
boards have the right o enforce their
rulings . in the courts by injunction,
money fines, confiscating of logs, etc.,
and the regulations are strict. The
owner has the right to cut as he pleases,
but if natural regeneration of tree
growth fails to appear, he is obliged to
plant, the board determining when the
necessity for such planting has arrived
More forest planting is done in the
southern provinces of the country.
About 2,000 trees pes acre are planted,
nursery stock and labor being cheaper
than in this country.
In 1002 a lumberman's trust was
formed to regulate the output, but the
attempt to restrict the cut proved a
failure. , It was expected that the law
of 1905 would tend to decrease the cut
for the time being, at any rate, until
the forests had regained their former
Sweden, like Vermont, has suffered
from emigration, due to a lack of profit
able industry. It should lie interesting
in the light of the diminishing industries
of certain parts of Vermont, to consider
the measures which such progressive
countries have taken for the maintain-!
ance of their industries, and the perma- j
nent prosperity of the people.
Washington, D. C, April 20. More
than 2,000 patriotic women, descendants
of patriots who fought for American
liberty, lilled the big auditorium of Me
morial Continental hall here to-day,
when Mrs. William Gumming Story, of
New York, president generai, called to
order the 23rd annual meeting of the

Representatives from every state in
the country with 1,377 chapters whicli

beautifully gowned women.
Vice 1'resident Marshall erected the

session had been devoted simply to roll
call and reports of credential and pro
gram committees. "Our Glorious Uan-
ner was tho march whicli the Marine
band chose to start the congress on its
patriotic way, and this was followed a i
little later in the afternoon program by
iue Mars and btripes forever." Right

the invocation. In addition to the vice
president, other prominent ollicials who
welcomed the daughters were Secretary
Duniels of the navy, Senator Works of
California, John Barrett, director gen
eral of the Pan-American union, and
Rogers Clark' Ballard Thurston, pres
ident general of the Sons of the Amer
ican Revolution.
Mrs. Story, president general of the

society during the past year, and paid aj
triDute to uatmany activities along pa
triotic lines. I
