MONTPEUER Montpelier Legion Had an Easy Time With St. Albans Legion Team Montpelier post, American legion, basketball team added another to its list of victories when it met the St. Al bans team in Montpelier last evening, winning by a score of CO to 115. There was no time after the first five minutes of play that the visiting team had a chance of winning the game. In the first period the local boys played all around the visiting team, with the re sult that the score stood 3li to 8 at the end of the 20-minutc period. The reg ular team played a portion of the see.- ond period, and then Hudson, Kelley and McGibney were placed on the team, relieving Gross, Bartlett and Juurd, This weakened the team work of the team quite a little, but even then the visiting team were unable to do much scoring. The regulars, during the first part of the second period, "stalled" around, just trying to prevent the vis itors from scoring and occasionally throwing a basket to "keep their eye" in case the visiting team should brace up some. The game was clean and fast at times, made io because the local team is getting in training to meet some of the faster teams from Massa chusetts when they can get games. A gixid deal of passing occurred in the first part of the game, with the result that Bartlett, a guard, came down the floor frequently, obtaining six baskets. This plan was abw followed because tlw visiting team were watching Clark and Gross very closely, but it did not prevent Gross getting eight and Clark four baskets in the first period. Jn the last period the guards and forwards of St. Albans changed positions. I he summary! Montpelier.

The records of the fire department show there were 12 bell alarms during the year in Montpelier, of which three amounted to nothing, two being false alarms. Cine was when it was thought a soldiers' train was passing through Montpelier, another when the wind short-circuited the wires, while the third was in June, when a man tried to put a letter m a lire alarm box near the l'avilion hotel. The fire loss was small, probably the smallest in year. Some of these losses have not been secured, because the insurance paid on them has not been ascertained by the chief of the department. The bell alarms, other than false alarms, are: Jan. 12. Luigi l'ilini: March 14, G. St. Onge; March 2o. Holmes block; May 12, L. Aron; July Forest Merrill; Sept. 20, Mrs. Cantillon, henhouse; Oct. 10, Sheridan & Boole, over-heated pulley; Nov, 24, Frank Huntington, house; Dee. 28, John Sarkis, Iwiiluni-e. There have been 3!) still alarms, against ." in 1018. There were nine bell alarms in 1018, the same number as in HMD, excepting the false alarms. Chief Persons is unable to ac count for the decrease in sVill alarms, unless it is due to better care of the chimneys by tenants and owners of houses. The total loss in 1010 probably will not exceed $0,000. John Benjamin has liotight i Lillian and II. . Naramore of Williainstown the Cross block on Kim street.

American rye whiskey has been blamed for a notable increase of drunk enness in (ireat Britain, but this theory is scouted by the Manchester Guardian, which points out that the lapse from war-time sobriety has been noted in cities where little of the imported liq uor was sold, and that in any case un der the regulations it must be broken down to the strength of .Scotch and Irih whiskey, 30 under proof. It quote a Manchester dealer as saying that to call the American whiskey "fire wa ter" wa unfair: "It was quite toler able atuff if inferior to our whiskies." At 'all events it seems clear that the dumping of American whiskey on the market was not the cause "of the in: crease in drunkenness, except as it helped to relieve the "whiskey short age" of whih the British press has been full. Probably demobilization has been a much greater factor. Spring field, Mass.. Republican.

In thi campaign there were ent to Murliiieton rendering nlant for slaughter from the vicinity of Barrej about 1 carload of tuberculous cattle which aupplied many home with tnilkj which undoubtedly wa consumed be- j fore it was pasteurized. The total number of row condemned in and! around Barre by the state and federal ! officiate a tubereulou was 37. Sixty ! one had tuberculosa is a generalised j form and were considered very danger-! oua to health. 1 here were six cow oi the total .number condemned which showed no visible lesion of disease on autopsy, inree or inese ix. now-j ever, had" other abnormal conditions, for which one was condemned on meat inspection. Suspiciou tissue of the six were sent to the pathological lab oratory at Waahington for examina-! tion and two came hack a positive of! tuberculosis. That left Jour which re- j acted to the test whii h did not show tubercular infection, but a above atat-; ed. three of the four showed abnormal conditions and it is quite probable that these would have shown visible lesion had the disease had time to progre much longer. ' A very striking example of the dan ger of consuming without previously pasteurizing milk of tubercular cows was noted in two dairies near Barre where a number of calves were found tuberculous on test. These animals re ceived skim milk and the milk was not pasteurized before it was fed.
