Though there is a friendly feeling among the students of both sohools. the name of one to the other gives rie to a sense of rivalry, and contests between, them never fail to lie exciting, for if there is one game that must be won It's that one. How. ever, they never fail to recognize the rules of clean athletics, which undoubt edly is the chief factor in bringing out each time these teams meet a record breaking crowd.

Rowoll of 16 Seminary street is suffering from the effects of a fall downstairs a few day ago and is able to get about only by use of crutches, the ligaments in ona heel hav ing been broken. She was leaving the house and a the head of tlie flight of 15 stairs,, which is very steep, she turned to pull the door together and lock it, when the door km pulled out and, there being nothing to cling to, she fell the entire length of the stairs to the piazza. A physician who was summoned found no broken bones, but the injury to the ligament above men tioned. Aside from this, Mrs. Rowell i very lame as a result of Iter experi ence. In the club rooms of the Montpelier council of the Knights of Columbus this evening, the deciding tournament of the winter series will be played. These clubs have met in 10 weekly tournaments of pool, billiard and cnb bage, and at the final game the Barre council which was behind five points, won eight of 11 games and tied with the Capital city council team. No pool or billiard player was allowed during the past game to play twice unless he had lost a game, and his second ap pearance at a contest could bo made only in the kind of a game he had been defeated at. This final and de ciding meet will be won and lost by the best player of each council, re gardless of past games. Representing the Barre council in billiards will be Joe Weafer and IHinard lender; .in pool, Perlcy Rucl, John Downs and Clarence Burke. Opposing these will le: In billiards, J. Jerome and A. Da ley; in pool, P. Hamel, (J. McDonald and C. Tobias. Within the past four day a vast quantity of tin cans, beer battles, and other refuse has been removed from the street of Barre by four employes of the street department with the aid of a large auto truck, behind which is attached a vehicle with an equal capa city for rubbish. During the summer month refuse and wate matter may be tidily disposed of by Barre denizens by simply placing the material at easy disposal for the street workmen on the last week of every month fnm April 2 to IVc. 1 People in every ward have taken this opportunity t-- dipoc of the winter collection of surh material this week, and for this reason the tonnage i extremely large. From time to time these four workmen have had occasion to lift many a "dead sol dier" or empty beer bottle onto the hep and carry them to oblivion and the city dump. In the days of old, only occasionally were the bottles found on the waste pil, for they then had a money valuation and were redeem able as well as useful. To-day they are retaino'd as ornaments only that the reminiscence of the joys, sorrows and sensations of old John Barleycorn may not pas too soon. Occasionally one see one or two are decorated with hand paint ing, but two used for such purposes in a home are a great suffi ciency where 24. retained for a different purpose, were once considered innffi. rient to la.t a week. Then again. Tom, Dick and Pete, chool lad, all knew their value and ksw to it that the ctreet workers mere e"nnd to visit the pile. especially those separated a two wte package, one of rcftie matter and the other Wtle. So it is evident that 'Pussyfoot" Johnson and the pro hibit ionists affected the younger gen eration as well as the old. NATIVE OF WILLIAMST0WN. Miss Emma C. Maxham Died in St. Albans Tuesday. St.. Albans, April 30. Mis Emma C. Maxham, of North Main street, died Tuesday shortly after 10 o'clock at the St. Albans hospital,' where she was taken about a week ago for treat ment. She had been in ill health sev eral yeurs. ' . . Miss Maxham was born May IS, 1847, and was, therefore, nearly 73 years old. She came to this city from Williamstown over 50 years ago and except for a few years which she passed in Montpelier had since made this her home. When Miss Maxham first came to St. Albans he was a clerk in a women' furnishing store, holding that position about three years before purchasing the business. In lOOi), after conducting the business 37 years, Mis Maxham sold out. to Miss E. O. McDonald and retired. Mis Maxham was the last survivor of a family of four children, one daughter and three sons, Henry, her twin broth er, Charles and Hiram. She is sur vived by three nieces, Mrs. Henry Sessions, of Chicago, Mrs. Lawrence Colony, of Keene, N. H., ami Mrs. Henrietta Metcalf, of Springfield, Mass. Miss Mavham was of the old New England type, strong in her convictions and standing firmly for what she be lieved. During her long residence here she waa held in deepest regard, both in her business and social life of the city. Newsprint Paper Consumption Far Ex ceeds Production in U. S. Consumption of newsprint paper in the I'ntted Stata has increased 21 per cent in the last five vears, during which period domestic production of the com modity ha shown a gain of only five per cent, according to a survey, of the newsprint paper situation published in the May Commerce Montihly, the mag azine of the National Bank of Com merce in New York. Although the present acute newspaper shortage is partly due to greatly increased use of paper in newspaper advertising, thi lack of a nonnail increase in production is "one of the principal causes of the stringency, the bank says. In ltK)i, it is pointed out, the United States produced all the newsprint pa per it used, but by 1910 it had become dependent on foreign source for a third of its supply. Between 18!0 and 1104 production increased (SO per cent. But between 1004 and 1919 the increase amounted only to 45 per cent. "Canada' recent development a a newsprint producer has been much more marked than our own," the arti cle states. "While only one plant has been constructed in the United States since 10O9, Canada has increased her pulp mills o" per cent in that time. Her production in 1917 was H80.847 short tons as compared with 159,01'i tons in the United States. Canada uses be tween 10 and 15 per cent of her own production and exports the rest al most entirely to the United States. Most of our foreign supply come from Canada, but small amounts hjv also imported from Norway and Swrednn." Although imports of newsprint pa per increased 98 per cent in the last five years, this country's export dur ing the same period increased 81 per cent. Argentina led the countries of the world in purchasing newsprint from the United State. During 1919 thi country exported nearly a sixth a much newsprint as it imported. Shrewd Advice. "He told me that he loved me.' "Has he told snvone else?" "No." "Then get him to do so." Boston Transcript. POLITICAL ADVERTISING Randolph Herald Thinks It Is Not an Unlawful Act. The action of Candidate Hartness in refusing to do political advertising on the ground that it is illegal practice has made the other three candidates likewise "gunsky." The result being that, further than the statement of the platform of each, no general publicity lias been given the candidates. Jn oth er words 90 per cent of the voters have only the platform and a vague impres sion of the man on which to base their preference. Vermont is small and a few men within Its borders may be termed as "generally known," but even at that a voter is riot always satisfied to vote for Jake Smith because four years ago last Decoration day Jake made a rattling good speech on "Patriotism in the School.' The voter has his own idea, k is for the best interest of the state and nation that he be allowed to vote for the candidate who best promises to fulfill those ideas. That is the basis of our national government. How is this voter to choose his can didate? A very, very small per cent of Vermont's freemen are that fortunate or unfortunate that they can slap Jake on the back and say, "Hallo, old man, how's is?" A very small per cent have ever heard Jake epeak or, in fact, ever saw him. A small per cent have received letters from him outlining his stand. A large per cent have read their home papers for "dope" on the respective Jakes and this year have found little. This because of sections 105 to 107, inclusive, statutes of Vermont. Sec tion 105 reads in part. "A person may incur and pay in order to promote his own nomination, or the nomination of another person, as a candidate for a public office. for writing, print ing and preparing for transmission any letter, circular or other publication not issued at regular intervals, whereby he may state his position or views, or the position or views of another person, upon public or other questions, " We interpret this to mean that a candidate may issue letters, circular 0' other documents spasmodically but not at regular intervals. We do not believe this section is concerned with whether or not the medium in which these documents are published is issued at regular intervals, so long as that medium i not wholly consumed by and solely intended for the publication of said documents. In other words, this section was aimed at the publica tion solely existing as a means to sup port a candidate. Certainly, if we are in the wrong in this interpretation, there are few Ver mont paper that have not violated this section many times since 1902, when it was enacted. It would seem highly probable that in the past 18 years" the flaw would have been dis cerned had it existed, for it is a known fact that political advertising is a choice morsel for the newspaper. To continue, section 100 reads in part: "No publisher of a newspaper, in this state, shall directly or indirectly, receive or accept money or other valuable thing in payment or compensation for the support or ad vocacy of the nomination of any person as a candidate for a public office in this state." Because a newspaper publishes an advertisement of Kur'eniquiik it is no criterion that the publisher ha person ally taken two bottles, lost 'all the red spots on hi tongue, and therefore ad vocate and supports Kur'emquick. Likewise, if we must interpret this section according to the letter of the law, because a publisher receives paid advertising he hss not necessarily sup ported or advocated the advertised commodity. However, again we prefer to believe this section refers to that The original and firt colored Tarnish ever produced. Has given complete satisfaction for orrr 34 years.
