I?y misplarement of typo, the Rrattln boro Reformer calls its town "Brittlc- boro". We always knew it was a laird town. If any more nations propose to enter the war, they will be hard put to it to find a distinctive color for their paper of explanation. Italy has just seized upon green. Little Switzerland remains fairly se rene, although located in the very hot bed of war. There is possible virtue in being so small that little fighting is ex pected from a nation. For a beginner at operating an auto mobile, a 10-aere lot is none too wide, and the average Vermont road is too nar row.' In other words, care ought to be used in selecting a place for the first lessons. Francis J. Houghton Estate Case May Go To Supreme Court. St. Albans, May 21 . In Franklin coun ty court yeaterday judgment wax entered in the so-culled Francis J, Houghton con tested will case to the effect th;.t the, instrument is tint lust will and testa ment of Mr. Houghton, to be certitled to the probate court. Exceptions were : laiceii iy me contestants. . A motion for judgment was filed bv the proponents April 20. The motion asked the court for its judgment that the instrument produced in the trial ! was the last will and testament of the i late Francis .1. Houghton: that it was duly executed; that Mr. Houghton"' was ot sound mind, and that no undue in fluence was tinod. The jury sustained tne will and this motion was simply to have the court s judgment conform with that of the jury. The contestants ob jected and the court took the matter un der advisement. VERDICT OF $3,300. A medical practitioner in Springfield, Mass., who was found guilty of an ille gal act, was placed on probation provid ing he would leave the state, of Massa chusetts within 30 days.. In other words, Massachusetts simply shifted the respon sibilitv for the man onto some other state, although by no stretch of the imagination is any other state respon sible for the man. It is not right this policy of dumping one's undesirables onto somebody else nor is it certain to result in the correction of the ways of the of fending party. Each state ought to face its own responsibilities. Barre people assert with all sincerity that it was a pleasure to entertain a state convention like the Vermont Con gregational conference which has just concluded its sessions, because the con vention brought together a gathering of affable, intelligent and discerning people who are typical of Vermont life and as pirations. They entered into the bus Iness of their conference in all serious mindedness, but at the same time the were not forgetful of the social side of such a gathering. And, too, they brought a list of speakers whose addresses were on a bigh plane and which served as an inspiration to-the large audiences of lo cal and visiting people. Therefore, Barre was pleased to entertain them, as it will bc pleased to do again as soon as occasion offers. Slate Manufacturer Lost in Suit Brought by Administrator. Kutland. May 21. A verdict of $3,- 800 for the plaintiff was rendered in Rutlund county court yesterday after noon at 3 o'clock by the jury trying the case brought by Winthrop L. Uuih of mis cuy, as unminiBiraior oi xno esiaie of Richard 0. Roberts, against Thomas P. Williams of Granville, N. Y., slate manufacturer, and owner of extensive quarry rights in Paw let. .The suit was brought by Attorneys Joseph (J. Jones and M. C.

Moloney who was forced to go to the hospital this week, was counsel for the defendant and Ins place was taken (Sunday by Mr, lenton. WAR VETERAN DEAD. We trust that none of the Vermont firms now engaged in turning out war products for the belligerent, in Europe will lay itself liable to the justified com plaint of inferior goods now being brought against American manufacturers. It was asserted from an authoritative source tjiat of 25 manufacturers who have leen sending shipments to Europe during the past six months or more only one of the number never failed to meet the stipulations of the contracts, all the othera having failed in one or more in stance. It may be a sharp game to beat the customer who is not in the beat shape to resist such n imposition, but it is not at all commendable; nor dw it as sure for American manufacturers that prestige which is likely to prove of value to them after the close of the war when Europe ran make its wlections without the pressure of nececsity brought about bv ar. American manufacturers who "beat their contract' are pimply spoil : ing their chance for future benefit in a wild scramble for present pain, which i mighty poor policy, lt alone the honor of the thing.

F.H.Rogers& Company LIBRARY 124 YEARS OLD. Brookfield Has Original Book Containing Preamble and By-Laws. Editor, Times: I saw in The Times, in the issue of the 18th inst in the column devoted to state news, the claim was made that the town of Arlington, Vt., contained the oldest library in the state. organized in 1S03, which is an error. ,To the town of Brookfield, Orange county, Vt., belongs the distinction of having the oldest social library in Vermont, bavins been organised in June, 1791, and has never missed a quarterly meeting from that day to the present time, a record of continuous service unparalleled in the history of the state, if not of New Eng land. Among the interesting volumes it con tain is the original record book of un ruled paper, bound in calf, containing the preamble and by-law, just a they were recorded at the first meeting, and which are in full force and operation aj the preciit time.
