Although President Wilson lias post poned announcement of his stand con cerning another nomination from the Democratic party for president of the country, there is a growing sense of ''certainty in the minds of people of all political oeneis tnai xnai, uwwiuu, when unnounccd, will be in renuncia- j tion of a third-term ambition. There is probably little doubt that Wilson is of the mental make-up to wish for a third term, not as a precedent -breaker but as a sort of "vindication" of his course in the negotiations leading up the framing of the treaty of Versailles. .Wilson lias been attacked attacked most freely and most venomously in some quarters for the part which he played in that conference of the allied nations; so he desires time to present proofs. Of course, the time is too short in his present term of office to give opportunity for proper judgment of the wisdom of his action for a vin dication of his course, so to speak. Naturally, therefore, a man of pro nounced ideas and somewhat overdevel- oped mental arrogance would desire to remain in office for a period long enough to let the scheme of things work out to such a degree as to justify itself. An other term in the White House would not, by any means, allow complete working out of that scheme but it would give time for starting a founda tion on which Wilson might hope to build a vindication. That being the case, Wilson might reasonably be ex pected to desire a third term. But there are other considerations to be weighed beside the personal desire for vindication while still in office. The chief of those considerations, and per haps the only one which needs to be mentioned, is thafr of the health of the president. For months he has been virtually an invalid following an attack which he experienced while on a west ern tour; and the progress which he is making toward health i sovBlow as to make it seem likely that his health will be somewhat frail from this time on. He may be restored to reasonably good health in due time but he will always be more or less susceptible o attacks by the ills to which the body is heir; and a consciousness of such a frailty will be apt to sway him in making a decision as to a third term candidacy. If he senses the warning of nature correctly, as it is believed he will, Wilson will renounce any third term ambition. That is the basis for the growing certainty to which we al luded in the first instance.

Guest. Somebody said that it couldn't be done When the Christmas Club scheme was spied Maybe it couldn't, but 'twas worth an effort To make it so we tried. We buckled right in and explained the thing, -We never were worried or doubted Its success was assured For memberships just poured In the thing that couldn't be done, ; And we did it. In December, 'thirteen, twenty thousand and more Was paid to the members so eager They joined right away, ne'er losing a day, On the second year's CLUB On a thing that wouldn't pay Did we do it? Somebody scoffed:. "Oh! you'll never beat that," But listen, friends, till we tell you Sixty-two thousand-seven-fifty-six Was the sum of the second year's horrible Styx! "It couldn't be done" but we did it. With tumult of war and financial stress We questioned the outcome in 'fifteen But forty-four thousand, eight hundred and more, Was paid in the CLUB that weathered the war, By the good Barre people. They did it. In 'sixteen and 'seventeen we struggled along With bonds, war savings stamps, and all kinds of drives, . i But still money came in, the saving habit would win On the thing that couldn't be done, And we did it. Fifty-four thousand, seven hundred plus, Fifty-nine thousand, four hundred plus, And forty -three thousand, three hundred plus Are the records of three years of war And this year was paid forty-two thousand, seven hundred sixty-five-eight, ' On a thing that couldr.'fr be done, And we did it There are thousands of things to eat up your "mon," There are thousands of troubles to count one by one, The Peace League is lodged in a political mess While the Senate is sleeping in self-righteousnss But start in and sing, Make Barre Savings Bank ring With the jingle of, the eighth year membership money . Our nineteen-twenty slogan is SAVE Go bun the knave who aid that It couldn't be done for we did it ! I I FRANK G. ROWLAND, Treasurer, fj A. W.
