Those nine men who haye volun t&rti to ride on the rocket to Mars are, of course, contributing to the hu mor of life. The farmer of Kansas are building ikoiises out of sods. There are plenty 'of tods in Vermont but the timber has !not all been used up yet. From ao authoritative source comes 'the statement that the paying of one 'Vermont newspaper for printing Hart ness publicity matter which other Ver mont papers were .asked to print free was a mistake, a misapprehension or something like that. It was, of course. v The allies of France may not join in the military movement in Germany, but they cannot well refuse to back up France if worse comes to worst. That much is certain. Even the United States, which' is not a party to the treaty of Versailles,1 has a certain mor al obligation in the matter. The Waterbury Record sees nothing to it but Dale if the present represen ts tive from the second Vermont dis trict ia opposed merely by Raymond Trainor of White River Junction. But there is a long time between flow and ihti primary, and a number of things might happen in the interim. One ean readily imagine the pent-up feelings of the. American soldiers in the German occupied area when they see their former comrades in arms, the French, marching away into a new ad venture further into the heart of Ger many. The red-blooded Americans no doubt feel themselves deprived of a chance to be in on a big thing. Announcement from an apparently official source in Rome that the Italian government was reluctantly forced to accept the Wilson plan of the settle ment of the Fiume dispute had an ad dendum which, unfortunately, came some time after the first announce ment. The Fiume question is not set tled yet, either according to the Wilson plan or any other plan. We shall have to receive these inspired announce ments from European capitals with a measure of reserve lest we be led astray in our conclusions. This does not apply merely to the announcements from Rome. The generous heart of the people of the United States is being revealed in the large contributions being made for relief of the suffering people of the city of Vienna and of other parts of Austria. When the story of the war is written this generosity to the people of a nation which was arrayed against the United States in the World war ought to have important consideration The display of good feeling is evidence enough that the United States did not go into the war with any sinister mo fives. that the contest in the convention is likely to run into several ballots at least. And if the contest is long drawn out there are chances for great devel opments. One of those chances is the upbuilding of the support for Herbert Hoover, a man who gives evidence of being strong with the people, and who would, therefore, be a natural choice of the Republican party as standard-bearer. The splendid vote given Hoover in the Michigan primary is good proof of his vote-getting capacity, inasmuch as he entered the campaign late and even then was handicapped by having his name on two tickets, the Democratic, an well as the Republican, through no fault of his own. If the popular senti ment in 'favor of Hoover continues to develop as it has grown during the last two weeks the former food administra tor will be bound to be a very powerful factor in the Chicago convention even though he may not have a great num ber of pledged delegates at the outset, It is conceded that Wood has the great est number of instructed delegates thus far, but every setback such as that in Michigan in which Johnson won is likely to react in favor of Hoover, it being quite generally conceded that Johnson has little chance of securing the nomination. LETTERS TOTHE EDITOR J Advises Adherence to Standard Time. Editor, Times: In looking over The Times of March 31, I noticed that many granite manufacturers and work men are in favor of the daylight sav ing plan of going to work one hour earlier in the morning and leave the clocks at standard time. Please let me say a word about how this turned out here in some cities. The stores and factories and working shops tried this plan and had to go back on standard time again this morn ing, after a week of confusion to the people. The N. V., X. H. 4 H. railroad refused to shift its time and as a re sult the working people who had to use this means of travel were late for work. I think the people of Vermont would better stay by the standard time as usual and save lots of confusion to working people and housewives also. A Vermonter in Connecticut. April 6, 1020. CORINTH Life Insurance The question is often asked us: "Do you believe in the principle of life insurance?" We suppose that this question is put to us frequently from the fact that many people believe that if they save their money and deposit it in our Savings Department, they have all the insurance they need. In some cases, perhaps many, this is true; but in many more, a great many more, we believe, prudence and forethought should dictate the necessity of carrying adequate life insurance. In the principle of life insurance," we thoroughly believe, and this might bk said with equal force of other forms of insurance ; and fur ther, we believe that the old line companies handling, as they are, the combined savings of the people with great skill, constitute one of the chief economic bulwarks of modern society. . Take some insurance! Not too much, not more than you are sure that you can pay for, and deposit in our Savings Department to take care of your premiums ! You will in this way get the fixed habit of saving, and you will have a larger bank account, too. The Peoples National Bank of Barre 4 per cent National Bank Protection for Your Savings 4 per cent fttZSKtiSBSBSE POST MILLS While the offense was particularly flagrant, it seems almost too strong a sentence to send seven men to prison for not less than a quarter of a century and not more than 40 years for the murder of a parader in the armistice day celebration at Ontralia, Wash., on Xov. 11, KIS. AH seven were not di rectly guilty of the killing of the pa rader, it would seem, although the others might have been accessories in the crime; and if they were accessories rather than principal in the particular crime charged they should, have been sentenced according to the offense the long term for the principal and lesser terms for the accessories, providing it were possible to differentiate. The non-appearance of the name of Wood row Wilson on the official ballot of th Georgia primary aftef petition had been filed for having it placed thereon may lie taken to be the first public intimation that Wilson intend to retire from the presidency at the rlose of his present term. Of course, (his is not conclusive evidence that he will not be a candidate. The situation r.ight develop at the Democratic na tional convention in the weakness of randidates or in a deadlock whereby the party roipht fall bark upon its Standard-hearer of two campaigns providing there waa any good evidence that Wilaon would be able fo carry on :he duties of present. Therefore, it iay be put down as a fart that Wilson !s to be merely a reerve candidate, ami lhat, too. will be dependent upon the itate of hi health, both mental and hrairal. Funeral Here of Hiram J. Brown, Who Committed Suicide in Portland, Me. The funeral of Hiram J. Brown was held on Fridav afternoon, April 2, at the Sawyer Memorial chapel at Brad ford. The body arrived on the Thurs day night train, accompanied by bis father, Arthur If. Brown, from "Port land, Me., where they had both been working for the past year. Hiram was employed in a livery stable and bis lifeless body was discovered in the early hours of the morning of Tuesday, March ,30, being a victim of suicide. The deceased was born in Bradford, April 13, 1895, the second son- of Ar thur H. and Ada (Davis) Brown. His mother died when he was a small boy and he, with his older brother, Ed ward, was taken into the family of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward B. Brown, at East Corinth, and reared to manhood. He is survived by his father and a second stepmother; his brother, Edward, and wife, who reside on the. old home farm at East Corinth, and his grandfather, E. B. Brown, who is 82 years old. Xo cause has been assigned for the rash deed. He was a very quiet, unassuming young man and hia employers always spoke highly of his labor. The bearers were his school mates, Henry Metralf, Leo Hutchinson, Winn Taplin and Earl Carter. The traveling was so very bad from Cor inth to Bradford that it deterred many from attending who would otherwise have been present.
