At thin jiMM'turo The Time woulil liko 10 illipi'OBS UpOll lll'VHH'r but It illsillp nd outside of the ntnto tlmt everything board or r'ioH'd concerning induHtrial i na tiers in IJiirre and vicinity i not to be taken as fact and ought not to lie lis neininatcd through tlie incdiiiin of the jinss without corroboration. Already there liaa bti'n evidence of a disposition to magnify conditioiifi lieyond a point tlmt is jiislilied by fact, nimply because hearsay report lias been taken to repre sent the actual state of affairs. It is unfortunate that newspaper men, toi whom entnihted the duty of writin the daily hintory of events either in their own locality or elsewhere and to whom that duty should be, a sacred trust it is unfortunate that they lose their sensp of reasoning and their mental poine just at a time when clarity of vision and cool judj-'nu'iit are very helpful factors !n Bolving dilliculties. Their experience in viewing events should serve to give them a clearer perspective than is granted to .the average observer of events; and when they fail to reveal that clearer perspec tive they indicate that they have failed to acquire the full benefits of their vo cation. Indeed, they are not a credit to their vocation. As for the case in hand, it calls for nothing beyond the truth so far as the newspapers are able to give it. Therefore, The Times would like to urge upon its contemporaries to exercise due caution, first, as to the sources of their information and, second, as to the man ner in wrhich the reports are presented to the readers of the newspapers. March did not come in like a lamb, not by several degrees of wind and tem perature, thus corroborating the ground -hog'a prophecy of a fairly early spring. But whatever your belief in these weath er predictors, you should not be at the bottom of the coalbin juet at present. Harre'g eligible voting strength this spring is surpassed by the membership of a single Harre labor union composed only of males and most of them males of voting age. It is a reasonable asser tion to make that if all the males ; voting age in Barre were eligible, the checklist would be a third larger than it is at the present time. The friends of the Kurn Ifattin homos t Westminster are rallying to the sup port of that institution in splendid fash ion, the donations -of the living having just lieen supplemented by a handsome Inquest of nearly IfHUHHt from the estate of a Wilmington woman. The purposes of this institution, the care and training of orphans, are such as to command hearty supKrt from almost all quarters; nd that fupxrt in constantly being brought to bear on the good aim of the homes. The oflicem having selected themselves for the new 'Ainericijn I-egion" for na tional defense, it is now left for the pri vate to enroll and do the fighting if lighting mines.

We Clean, Press and Repair Clothinj sage in a manner unprecedented and have thrust the residents of Constantinople into a frenzy of fear for the safety of the Turkish capital. Thus far the Turk ish defense has proved itself inadequate ly supported by guns and poorly sup plied with men to handle the weapons they have, while the Uritish and Frencn guns of longer range have succeeded in raking the fortilieatioriB along the first 1.) miles of the passage. The success ha been such as to warrant the expectation that the entire series of forts will, in due time, be reduced and Constantinople laid bare to the invasion of the allies. All this, of course, is dependent to a great extent on the plans which the allies have for covering their movement. Should their heavy ships enter the narrows and become bottled up there through block - ade of a greater fleet of hostile ships at the mouth, the effort not only would fail but it would turn into a disaster of great magnitude. But that possibility seems remote, and chiefly for two rea sons; that a stupendous offensive move ment of thut nature would not be at tempted without sufficient rear protec tion and that the foes opposed to the allies have not the ships available to carry out a rear attack or a blockade. It is more than prolmble that a fleet ot eommamling size, 'speed and equipment has be .'ii placed at the mouth of the nar row passage which lead from the Kgean sea into the sea of Marmona and thence into the Black sea. that fleet to ward o.T any attack that might lie esayed or any blockade of the entering fleet. Moreover. the uavv of I! rent Brita in. combined with t lie ships of the French navy, is so nu merous that it can attend to the major part of the (icrmau and AuMrian nay and leave the fleet engaged in the present great offensive movement free to carry on their work. There is little chanee of molestation by Germany and Austria by sea, thus heightening the chance for sue- eesful attack on Constantinople iteif, the goal of many ambitions. , CURRENT COMMENT Restore the Forest Preservation Fund.

"h.acn soiuier thought of a different hiss, but all sang 'Annie Laurie.'" Various tales are told of the sinping of "Home, Sweet Home," by the soldiers at Petersburg and else where in the American Civil war, and several poems founded upon the join ing of "the blue and the gray- in the uni vnrttul unnir nf tlie human heart" when the trenches were near enough together for the men to swan newsnaiMTS and tobacco without exposing themselves to each other's fire. The letters of the sob uiers in the trenches in France contain many such incidents. On a night lately, when the half-frozen mud was knee deep and nothing was heard but the crack of rilles. the dull misery of the routine w broken hv a Welsh soldier who pos sessed a fine voice. He sang for an hour . . . md the applause came trom tne ocrman trenches as well as the Knglish, and at length a liargain was struck that the firing, which had ceased, should not be resumed until daylight. Men well ac quainted with the life of the soldier seldom regard a liand as a hindrance. Kipling lately has been appealing in Kiighind for music for the soldiers at the front, and commanders say the High landers fight best when they hear the ,-kirling of the lxippiies. Boston Her ald.

Prohibits All Persons From Selling or Giving Habit-Forming Drugs. Washington, March 2. The act. of Congress prohibiting all persona from selling or giving away habit-forming drugs without a physician's prescription or under direct instruction of a physi cian went into effect yesterday. These, drugs include opium, cocaine, leaves, or any compound, manufacture, salts derivative, or preparation made from suuli drugs. Remedies that cannot be dispensed without a physician's orders include those containing more than two grains of opium or more than one-fourth of a grain of morphine, or one-eighth of heroin, or one grain of codeine. Violators of the law are subject to a fine of not more than $2,000 or imprison ment for five years or both. Enforce ment of the law is vested in the com missioner of internal reveneue, for which $l.r0,000 is provided. Champions of the measure contend it will greatly, benefit the country at large and the dope fiend in particular, while others predict that it will work unlim ited harm to drug habitues. Chicago, March 2. Ten thousand dis pensers of habit-forming drugs register ed their names with the collector of in ternal revenues here, as required by the federal act which went into effect yes terday and were supplied with licenses. Far-Reacbing Effects of Leal Poisoning. -ead poisoning has detrimental ef fect on the offspring of the workers, whether male or female. Half a century ago Constantantine Paul reported strik ing observations on tlm effects of pater nal lead-poisoning cases in which the father was subjected to plumbism, the mother being unaffected. He obtained the history of thirty-two pregnancies of this order; twelve of them resulted in the death of the child before birth ; twen ty children were born alive, but the mor tality among them was extremely large, only two surviving the third year. Chil dren so born were found particularly liable to vat ion ncrv?u affection. These unusual statistic, say The Jour nal of the American Medii-al Association, have not, so fsr as we ar aware, been refuted. In the Cnierity of Wisconsin.

Miss Norma Perkins, who wus operat ed upon in Burlington Saturday for ap pendicitis, is doing unusually well.

At On Time the Fruit Was Called ths "Food of the Gods." The apple has become so familiar as the commonest of all fruits that its value as man's greatest friend In the vegetable kingdom may not be fully realized. It was called the "food of the gods" because It was believed to b the magic renewer of youth to which the gods resorted when they felt them selves growing old and feeble. There have been many mystic tradi tions about the apple, which has been credited with varied potency. It is the healing fruit of the Arabian tales. Latin chronicles and institutes and ear ly English poems contain many refer ences to it Scientific analysis of late years has justified all the ancient glori fication of thbs fruit, which has been found to contain albumen, sugur, gum, malic acid, gallic acid, fiber, water and phosphorus. Malic acid of apples neutralizes the excess of chalky matter caused by too much meat and thereby helps to keep us young. Apples are good for the complexion, as their acids drive out the noxious matters which cause skin eruptions. They are good for the brain.' which those same noxious matters, If retained, render srugglsh. The acids of the pp!e diminish the acidity of the stomach tbut comes with some forms of Indigestion. The phosphorus, of which apples con tain a larger per cent than any other fruit or vegetable, renews the essential matter of the brain and spinal column. Boston Herald. Does Your Spin Shiver? "A shivering spine." said a psycholo gist, "is the one Infallible proof of an artistic temperament. Does a shiver run up and down your spine when you listen to beautiful music or read a lovely poem or look at a superb paint ing? If not the gata of art are closed to you foreTer. All great artists and all goes! critics experience this shiver ing sensation of the backbone before a worthy work of art. Some of these men use the shiver as a measure.
