The prevalence of Influenza in many of the larger municipalities throughout the country has caused a little anxiety to many Barre people about it appear ance in Barre again. The heavy mor tality record established here during the epidemic of 101S is the foundation of this anxiety for the most part. And well it might be, for the death rate in the city of Barre was never so great as during those few weeks of the fall of 1018 and early 1910. Thus fur this year City Physician Wark has received ho word from any physician in Barre that would indicate that a single case of influenza existed in Barre. It is true that grip has of late caused consider able illness hereabouts, but for the most part these case have caused but a few davs' inactivity for the patient. At the present time there exist many canes of grip in this city, as well as pneumonia. Whether or not the num ber exceeds the average of bther years cannot be definitely ststed. though it is the belief of Dr. O. O. Stickney, former health officer, thst there are not as many cases as usual for this time of the year. What of California's Vineyards? The California delegation in Con gress has aked the House committee on appropriations to report an item of flOO.OOil for experiments and investi gations leading to some profitable use of our wine grapes. While The Chronicle is opposed to the continual running to the state and United states government for appro priations for the benefit of small mi norities of the people, in this case the people owe our wiue grape growers a Just debt, which should be aid promptly and in full. And if the American people are even reasonably honest, they will pay without question. And f 100,000 will go but a very little war toward it. The California wine industry has for years been encouraged by state and na tional legislation and by actual appro priations of money continued down to the very moment of prohibition. There are probably even now unexpended bal ances of appropriations made for the ncouragemcnt of th.win industry. But that which the peopl helped to build up they have now undertaken to completely destroy, and if there is any salvage to be got from the wreek it is the duty of the whole people to help se cure it.

The Vermont Legislature. It is an excellent thing to be talking about the kind of governor Vermont needs, but the fact should not be lost sight of that the governor, as a mutter of routine, is bound by the acts of the legislature, so careful heed to the qual ity of legislatures is jut as important a picking good executives. Rutland Herald. This is a good point, but it immedi ately brings u face to face with the proposed change in our prccent system of representation. It is a fairly safe proposition that the smaller the legis lature the higher the type of individual representative will be, that deduction being drawn from the fact that each representative can be selected from a mui h larger number of eligible than at the present time. Running the state of Vermont under present conditions presents a problem in the solution of whivh we can hardly afford to await too much upon tradi tions nor on practices that are desig nated a rigbt and proper merely be cause they have been handed down to us through the years. In any establishment where income and outgo is consideration, from the humblest home to the administration of the United States, the problem of cost f a serious one and require all the skill that ran bo mustered in an clhVient solution. Whatever progress Vermont make in the next g-ncra4ion will be crestly helped or seriouly retarded by our state legislature, so that it is easy to agree with the jioint scored by The Herald. That there i anything sacred about a system that every two year dump an "unwieldy mass of untrained legis lators upon us we seriouly doubt. Our .own idea has always been that one of our great needs is not only a smaller !. gii-lature, but one in hkh the untrained legislator shall never predominate.

Adams Lo. A Time for Hygienic Livinj. In the news columns of this issue a table is printed which shows, side by side with a like record for the corre sponding day of 10IB, the number of eases of influenza and pneumonia, to gether with the deaths therefrom, that have been reported to Boston's health commissioner during the 10 days from .Ian. 20-29, 1920. This comparison in dicates that until last Monday there was little if any cause for alarm over the current situation in Boston. The cases reported to that date were great ly less numerous this year than they were last year at a time when, even then, the epidemic was not at its height but was present only in the form of a recurrent attack. Beginning on Mon day of this week, the immediate sit uation in Boston, however, took a turn for the worse. During the last four i . i . t U . . .. U I nays ine nuniwr oi esses n iuh following course: Jan. 2, 145; Jan. 27, 1!7; Jan. 28, 307; this morning, 300. Although the marked increase noted during the last two days, and especially yesterday, is in part due to an influx of belated reports, occasioned by the ex tensive publicity, recently given the subject, there can be no denying the fact that insofar as number of cases alone is concerned, the immediate sit uation is far from favorable. It is se rious enough to command the prompt taking of every step, cither public or private, which can help to keep the epi demic from growing worse, and which will prepare us for thoroughly effective action if, despite all, the influenza doe go on from bad to worse. For the pur pose of preparedness the request tiled by the state board of health thst it be granted a $25,000 fund with which to combat any emergency that may arise, is most commendable, as is also the organization of the special commities appointed by Mayor Peters to as-ist the health commissioner. Pr. Wood ward, in any matters in which even his well-ordered ofllee may need assistance. For the purpose of preventing the pre cipitation of an emergency, for the pur nose of keeoine the influensa from growing worse at this time, it is not. our public agencies, however, which can be of most service, it i me l"""" citifien who ran best protect both him self and others by observing with scru pulous care all the dictates of hygienic living and all those amenities of con duct which help to prevent the spread of eontadion. , With this urgency recognired and with evcrv possible emphasis pla.-ed upon meeting it. there are reason, however, hy concern over the present situation should not asume the pro portions of public alarm. If the num ber of eases has lately risen to a high figure, it does not appear that they are so virulent this year a they were lat. Of this the health commissioners rec ords, referred to above, fir.ve a lair in dication.

Commiwioner Wood ward doe nnt regard the statistic as being either complete or conclusive, de spite all possible efforts to make them so. But he Las at hand the statements of many Boston physicians to the ef fect that the influenza in it present epidemic form is milder than it was last vear, and upon this professional evidence he feels justified in basing his own concurrent judgment. This is quieting new, but it should not be taken as excuse for any negli gence whatsoever. In itself the death that is one of ten is as much a cause of public loss and private grief as the death that is one of twenty. To for fend it there should be an equal Vig ilance, public, and private. If the pres ent epidemic is to be kept "mild," as the evidence now suggest that it is, there must be the greatest possible co operation of 'public effort and private eudeavor to stamp it out altogether. Boston Transcript, Vermont Druggists an w- The resolution adopted by the Ver mont Pharmaceutical association at its annual meeting in Montpelier this week will cause some surprise. Its members voted not to sell any liquor for any purpose whatever until the state and federal laws regarding the sale of liq quor be brought into harmony. They claim that while the federal law pro vides for the sale of li.pior containing mure, than one-half of one per cent of alcohol for strictly medicinal pur poses one the prescription of a physi cian and for religious purpose, the state law forbids such sales unless the town, under the state law, has voted to allow the issusnee of druggists' licenses. Article VI, section 2, of the I'nited States constitution says: "Tlis con 'titution and the law of the United States which shall bo made in pursu ance thereof: and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the au thority of the United State shall be the supreme laws of the land; and the judges in every sate shall be bound therebv, anything in the constitution or laws of any slate to the contrary notwithstanding." Such a declaration of the supremacy of the federal law over any state law would seem u(Tcient to give the drug gUts of the state the right to sell liquor under the federal law now in force. It looks a if they had decided not to carry out the prohibition law rather than trying to live under the law. Their act tends to showing more disrespect for the federal than respect for the state la w. Brattleboro Reform er. OHOS M ! Large cans Van Camp's Evaporated Milk, per can, 13c, 12 cans for $1.60 !

The F. D. Ladd Company ""NbXS ? Vim . ft Vermont Boys and Girls. Every Vermonter feels justifiable pride in the record of the 10,000 Ver mont boys and girls enrolled in clubs lHt season, who produced garden crops, canned goods, pigs, poultry, potatoes, corn, calves, sheep, cooking, sewing, handicrafts; and maple sugar worth $.'Ji),tS29.32 and on which they made a r,r.,fit of Slrt 40fi 7i. While the val ue of their product was less than $t per person and their net profit but $1.64 each, the whole result is of a very creditable magnitude. It is doubtful if adult farmers can show such a large percentage of net profits. Not every boy and girl enrolled was a success, and doubtless many of them were actually losers in their undertak ings. But the work of the season has opened to many of them an occupation in which they can win success. One girl made a net profit of $33.21 from her garden, another $286.64 canning fruit and jelly," a third successfully baked 115 bakings and the fourth was very successful in sewing. One Vermont boy made a net profit of $49.10 on a regis tered Chester White sow, one $173 on eggs, one $261.40 on 125 bushels of po tatoes, one raised 125 bushels of corn per acre, one $02.83 on purebred Ayr shire calves, one has produced a fine flock of sheep, one showed great skill in handicrafts and another made a profit of $19S on making maple sugar. Kveryone of these has become expert in his or her line of effort and has dem onstrated ability to produce necessities of life. Their success is greater than that of any student, because they have become masters of a useful and productive art. They have made great advancement in good citizenship and promise still great er achievement as they mature. The development of 12 such boys and girls a year is a worth-while result of the boys" nnd girls' clubs; but the clubs have done much more than this. Theso boy and girls are the firsts, but they are closely approached by more than 100 other boys and girls who have achieved marked success. The people of the state will want these club con tinued and see 20,000 instead of 10,000 young Vermonter developing their ab.lities to produce wealth and useful products. Brattleboro Reformer.
