Societies are assisting in forming Thrift Clubs for the benefit of the young, believing that boys and girls who form the habit of saving regularly, a part of their earning or al lowance, are more sure of making honest and prosperous citizens, it giving them a definite object in life that is sure to shape their course for good in future years.

Sidney K. SpatTord. Manager Larrabec of the traction com pany states that the somewhat prevalent idea that with the inauguration of the new schedule of fares on ec. J!H the fare between Montpelier and Harre would be 15 cent", is to a certain ex tent erroneous. He says that the cash fare of five cents within the limits of the three towns is nude in order to con form with the sections in the franchises of these towns relating tu fare, which I the supreme court has held to be a ! binding contract. Hy the use of the in j terurban tickets, how ever, it will be pos sible for a passenger to trawl irmti Montpelier to Harre or vice vers, for 12 cents. Since these ticket will te on sale not only at the cnuipsny's ollhw j in Montpelier and Harre hut also by I the conductors on the ears, it will I I possible for every through paen? r to avail himself of a l-'!4 cent rate if h j so desires.

A pamphlet issued by the department of public welfare of the city of Cleveland deals with the history, functions and pos sibilities of the Cleveland City hospital. The following statement, copied from the Journal of the American Medical As sociation, indicate that those in charge of this hospital have a clear conception of the invaluablu serice to the public which can lie rendered by a great muni cipal hospital if properly conducted: "A municipal Imspital is an institution ot or ganized society provided by a city to care for the nick. It is but a medical means to a social end, and this end -public welfare must never be forgotten. The modern hospital has outgrown tV) narrow held of Isiarding and treating sick people, and the time has come when a proper city hospital can no longer pas sively receive the sick from the commu nity at huge, without regard for the rea son why thev became eh k, use them hietlv as material and often discharge thein without the slightest intcret in their convalescence and rehabilitation in wholesome living nud working conditions. Hospitals more than urty other social agency accumulate the evidence against. the dangers to life in the community. dangers from contagion, from ways of ivmg and from industry, and they mut feel the responsibility to study this evi dence and Isvome leaders in the progress of prophylactic medicine. The idle con valescent is of no noire value in a com munity than the liedridden snd scarcely loss eiensive to support. It is not only charity and social service, but also sound economy for a city to supervise con xah'scence; to make it such that the pa tient can return to his work the sooner. A city hospital of to-day must continue to give to a community scientific care for its sik and must afford opportunity's Isith for scientific investigation snd for! the education of physicians, nurses and orderlies. Hut shove all. it must. through co-operation with all other com munity social agencies, give h watchful ness over public lieslth and result that will result in more days of life, work and happiness to its citiretis."

The state of Vermont is making an experiment in connection with its com ing legislative session which we bhall watch with intercut. An oliice for the "revision of bills" lias la-en opened at the state capitol in Mont pelier and to it members-elect are re quested to send or bring measures which they intend to introduce into the legis lature. The oflice is cMahlisJicd under un act of the last previous legislature which provided that two men of legal train ing and practice, who have had legisla tive experience, but who shall not be eligible to membership in cither branch ot the legislature during their incum bency in this oifice. shall lie appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Sen ate, to la- known as "revisers of bills." The salary of the oilice is $7..Vi a day while the revisi rs are actually engaged in the duties of their otlice. The act pro vides that the revisers shall not be re moved except fur cause, making the po sition virtually of hie tenure. The re vise rs are permitted to hire clerical as sistance at the expense of the state. The law provide that tho ievirs shall ls in session nt .Montpelier .'io days in advance of the ronveniny ! the gen eral assembly for the receipt of hk-ji- ores which memls-i s-eb-i t m.i v wish to introduce in the legislature. We can sec h" . if Ci light icon sre found for thi s' o:!i,cs an I if thev scenic the hearty n-opcMtion of the l.-vislj-, tors, a great del i f money can be avcd 1 j fur the slate and ni'ich ha'.l-b.ikcd leg is- I lat ion avoided. If the plan works well in Vi round this state should net lietate to copy it. ('.noord Monitor. Do the Rich Have Contempt for the Poor? In the January Woman's Jlome Com panion Kathleen Xorris. writing a serial story entitled 'Tneducating Mary," pre sents as her principal character a young married woman, named Mary Constable, who when she was first married was rich and now is poor. In the following ex tract she tells how she used to look at poverty when she was rich and how she looks nt it now that she herself is poor: "1'overty but hadn't there always seemed to be something wrong with peo ple who were always poor? Something to criticize, something at which to won der, some quality to which one felt su perior ? Marys cheeks burned some times when she remembered her crisp riticism of men who allowed their wives to go on year in and year out without servant. . "And she thought with a new under standing and pity of those women of her own old world, 'society women,' who had struggled year out and year in to maintain the pretense of financial ease. Women, thought Mary, who hnd at tempted vo gradually to replace with witty conversation and daring innova tion the luxuries to which their guests were accustomed. And tho guests, too often, saw through the pitiful little pre tense ;:nd laughed at it, or despised it." Presbyterian Men's Supper.
