LANGLET. FabU.hat Villa, Carranza, ft al take a vacation. Vermont'a political partiea will ob nerve the conventions -also the conven tionalities, The war happened most opportunely to give the trans-Atlantic aviator a good excuse for postponing" his proposed trip. If there is a Kuropcan nation that has not been swept into the maelstrom let it now stand up and be properly cred ited. The statue of Liberty will look pood to some thousands of Americans who were caught in European countries by the onrush of war. The Atlantic ocean may bq an impor tant theatre for the international drama now beinjr staged and not so very far from the United States shores, too. The bumper crops, so-called, in the United States will find a ready market in Europe if not wanted at home. Hut there may be trouble in collecting for it Bar Harbor cannot be accused of re sorting to advertising means in the Kronprinzessin Cecilie pursuit into the Harbor, yet it serves very well in a dull season. Ultimatums -arc' rebounding and rico cheting throughout Europe with all the resiliency of a rubber ball. Meanwhile there is some satisfaction here in know, ing it is 3,000 miles across the ocean. Gov, Louis D. Hanna of North Dakota is a former resident of Vermont town of Stamford and he has been visiting scenes in that vicinity during the past few days. If Vermont could welcome all its famous sons at the same time it would be a grand party indeed. The high cost of having disastrous fires is shown by the increased assess ment of mutual insurance companies in Vermont, and the whole has to suffer from the shortcomings of the few com munities which neglect to provide them selves with proper equipment. A large proportion of the aggregate fire loss in Vermont each year is to be located in towns which have not taken steps to provide adequate apparatus and to sup ply sufficient water supply; but, hap pily, the number of delinquent towns is decreasing, although slowly, and gen erally not until warning has Wen given in the Ioks of considerable property. A Putney clergyman was fined recent ly for riding a bicycle on the sidewalk while returning home from church serv ice on Sunday. In some places it is punishment in itself to be forced to ride in the street, so bumpy arc the roads; but, still, the sidewalks ought to be re served for pedestrians in any town. However, we fear there are those in every community who do as the minister did and yet are not called to account for doing it. That which happened to the minister ought to result in drawing the lines a little tighter on all violators of the laws and ordinances restricting the use of sidewalks to pedestrians and baby Carriages. Without doubt most of those Amer icans who are in Europe at the present time and who have been caught in the war net, so to speak, are financially able I to get out of the country or have friends who are financially able to assist them in getting home, but they are unable to get bold of those funds, having depend ed on letters of credit, etc., for their ' ordinary expenses. Therefore, the pro posal by Congress to appropriate a con siderable sum of money at this time is not because of the poverty of the thous ands ao caught hut because of the exi gency of the situation which prevents them from drawing on their own re sources. That their condition is some what serious, practically alone and in stranpe eonntries, "is generally believed; and the efforts to relieve their distress will be commended. A LITTLE ROAD WORK SEEDED. Now that work is to be started on permanent road building on South Main .street in Barre to the Barre Town line and also in Williamstown from the Barre Town line southward on the main highway, it would be a good thinp for TUrre Town to take 'up road work in the intervening space and repair some very much worn places. Notable spots which stsrd in need of repair are the assent into otith Barre villas, which Our Facilities for properly treating your printinjr supplies are known by many tatisfied customers. Are you among them ? ? N. J. ROBERTS K Serta -Yam St Basel umom Quality Printer Yes, that is exactly it HATS HALF OFF in price. $6-Panamas now $3. $3 Sennits now $1.50 $2 Splits now $1. Only a few pairs of out ing Pants left, $2.50 a pair. The new Fall Caps are here. Wa Clean, Press and Repair Clothing F. H. Rogers & Co. is full of rocks, and the top of the hill at the entrance to the village, and fur ther along southward near the Roben place, which has become covered with depressions. Moreover, some work ought to be done on the. same strrp or high way south of the Smith stock farm to the Williamstown line, where the per manent work in Williamstown is start ed. When these jobs are completed, to gether with the permanent work con templated in Barre and Williamstown, the highway will be fit to compare with the remainder ' of the route to White River Junction over which there is so much traffic during the summer months and especially during state fair week. The 52-mile road from Barre to White River Junction is called the best con tinuous stretch in Vermont, but there are a few pieces at the north end of the stretch that belie the good reputa tion of the whole at the present time. WITH BEAUTIFUL SETTING "The Romancers" Was Pmented in an Open-Air Performauee. Favored by a most attractive natural setting, Rostand's "The Romancers" was presented by the Frank Lea Short com pany under the auspices of the Barre Woman's club last evening, the lawn of Mrs. Isabella D. Smith of Elm street having been transformed into a theatre for the engagement. The fair-siued au dience was much pleased with the excel lent presentation of the play. A most beantiful scene greeted the audience when three calcium lights were turned on the stage, while the moon cast its soft light upon the al fresco performance. The lawn had been cur tained off by a large canvas, and the streets bordering were roped on to guard against the noises of vehicles. The story, containing many thrills, also pictures a sweet love tale in which the shattered dreams of two fair lovers are at last settled in a fitting climax. As Sylvette, Miss Kathryn Vincent, in her charming, yet simple manner, won the closest attentions and her acting was one of the worthy features of the performance. The role of Percinet, the poet and nature-lover, wag well por trayed by V. L. Oranville. J. P. Mae Sweeney as Bergeman and Frank How son as Pasquin, the two fathers, were all that the characters called for and they had little trouble in bringing out the humorous lines which run through the playlet. Mr. Short, himself an ac tor of 'ability, proved an interesting character as Straforel. He it was who produced the fake abduction and who finally brought the fair maiden and her devoted lover together again. Miss Eya Quintard supported the part of the maid. From the onlookers' view point it was the most picturesque piece of stape work yet given to a local audience. The production was under the direction of Russell Janney, who is the general man ager of the company. From here the company go to Woodstock, where they play under the auspices of the country club.
