MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The AwocUted Preef la exflnaively entiU'd to the dm foe repnhUration of all new dia patehee credited to It or not otherwise ereo ,ited in thie paper, end alo the local aim abUshed therein. This is the season of the year when Vermont has few roads, or even apolo gies for roads. Congressman Porter H. Dale has not yet made an announcement that he is to be a candidate to succeed himself in ;the national House. Perhaps a word on the subject may be expected from ' him within a short time. Ex-Pres. Taft has good reason to ap peal to Vermont for ratification of the i suffrage ameudment, for Vermont was 'about all Taft had la the presidential election of 1912, and Taft feels a sort ,of proprietary interest In the Green 'Mountain state. Hoover has replied definitely "No" to the query whether he would accept the Democratic) nomination for president providing it were offered to him. This ought to dispose of the silly argument that Hoover is trying to ride two horses at one and the same time. - Although Vermont's brook trout sea son will open to-morrow there are few evidences that full stringg will be se cured. The delay due to the weather will probably have a tendency to make the sport better a month from now, giving the trout timo to develop. . Rummaging around In the old flies of the Brattleboro Plucnix, The Reformer of Brattleboro has found an editorial of April 8, 180!), which stated that woman's suffrage "is only a question of time." The asseveration eems to be as true to-day as it was half a cen tury ago and quite a bit nearer realization. The day when women are considered unfit for the medical profession is past, and the University of Vermont does well to recognize the change by decid ing to admit women to matriculation in the medical department of the in stitution on the same basis as men. Women are not taking to the profes sion in large numbers but there is no reason why they should not .be as suc cessful as the men in practicing medi cine if not in surgery. 1 St. Louis is one of the exceptions to the rule as regards population statis ticsthe rule of marked increase in urban population and a proportionate falling off in the country districts for St. Louis gains only 12.5 per cent, the smallest in the history of that mu nicipality. No doubt a strong reason for the slow development of the pop ulation of the city is the decline of the liquor industry through the incoming of federal prohibition, inasmuch as St. Louis had a considerable volume of business in the line of beer-making, be ing almost as well known in that busi ness as is Milwaukee. Thus national prohibition has done an unexpectedly good turn in preventing the cluttering up of some of the great centers of pop ulation with more people than can be conveniently cared for. The abandonment of the handsome, two and one-half years' old boy in St. Johnsbury was undoubtedly a good thing from the standpoint of the boy, for the man and woman who left the youngster to his fate proved them selves unworthy to bring up the boy and make the best kind of eitixen out of him. Now, the boy will be sure to get a good home and be given all the tender care and attention that i lav ished on a child iu the average Amer ican home, wliereas his life under the control of the man and woman who brought him to St. Johnbury, would have been moat uncertain and unsatis factory, while the crime of aban doning the child was most reprehen sible, it seems probable that the re eults will prove of great vslue in giv ing the boy the right etart in life. How ever, thst ehcuU no prevent a keen aearrh being made for the offenders. FAITH To have "and hold our faith in our f ellowmen is the foundation upon which our government was founded; it is the essence of true democracy. Whatever differences of opinion may arise; whatever con flicting emotions and passions may for the moment warp our judgment, we still have enough, faith m each other to believe that eventually a common viewpoint can be reached - a common ground of interest where we can work together for the greater food of all. If this cannot be done, we must deny all. progress and regard man as a being insensible to moral and spintual in fluences, just merely a beast. We as a bank have absolute confidence and faith in those "with whom we are doing business and the community at large, and if our conduct is worthy of such confidence, we shall take new hope in our mission of public service.
