to give the trans-Atlantic aviator a good

If there is a Kuropcan nation that has
not been swept into the maelstrom let
it now stand up and be properly cred

to some thousands of Americans who
were caught in European countries by
the onrush of war.
The Atlantic ocean may bq an impor

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
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.
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

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.
"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
