The wind continues to blow off the snowbanks of the northwest. The Carratiza regime i? collapsing like a house of cards before the first puff of adverse wind. It looks like a close race between sugar and gasoline to see which reaches the H. C. of L. summit first. An indication of the very small part which the liquor issue is likely to take in elections this year is revealed by the action of the Democrats of Illinois in rejecting by a large majority in the state committee on resolutions a pro posed "wet" plank. Governor Edwards of Hew Jersey and some persons in Vermont should take due cognizance of the action. The death of William Dean Howells at the age of 83 removes one of the last connecting links between the pres ent day and the day of America's liter ary glory. It was Howells' privilege to gain an inspiration through personal relationship with such great literary minds as Henry W. Longfellow, Na thaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emer son, Oliver Wendell Holmes and James Eussell Lowell, a coterie of brilliant minds which brought fame to American letters and the like of which have not appeared in a group since their day. The inspiration which Howells drew from them stamped him as a worthy successor to that old school of Ameri can literary masters. BETHEL Frank Townsend has moved from Harnard into the hoUBe belonging to Rollin Gilson, lately vacated by F. W. Quimby. . , , Mrs. Charlotte Abbott or unuernm is visiting her sister, Mrs. Ellen (lilson. John A. Aldrich has sold his place in the Camp brook district to Willard ti.

He will preach again at the league meet ing in this villuge next Sunday at 7:'!0. Mrs. M. L. Wilson's faithful dog, "Trixie," died at the feet of her mis tress on the sidewalk near the Bethel inn yesterday morning, two or three minutes after being accidentally run over by a truck driven by Clyde E. Blossom. O.' J. Richardson, a well-known Civil war veteran, after spending the last two months with his daughter, Mrs. H. E. Boutwell, returned yesterday to his home in Gaysville. A spelling match between represen tatives of the five upper grades of the village schools and all of the rural schools in town will be held at the Bas eom theatre Friday of this week at 'Z o'clock.

Blijs of Burlington will "The Old Standby" Why is It that no shoes feel so comfortable, no pipe smokes so well, no gun snoots so straight, and no rod casts so far as the old one? We all know the reason; it is from the fact that a man forms a friendship for those things which he has tried; he knows what they will do and thats enough for any sensible man. ' - They are his old friends his old standby s, and he will not. forsake them without a protest. So too with your bank ; it should so serve you and you should so support it that it shall grow and be strong, and then you may point to it with pnde and say, "There's my Old Standby." . . We aim to be progressive and make this bank responsive to the ever-increasing demands of our friends, but we are always on our guard to keep it strong and safe, so that it shall live" through the years and be an Old Standby to successive generations.

Davis, for many years a member of the Boston xiliee force, with his wife and children, is occupying the Charles Davis farm neftr this vil las. He bought it recently -from his grandfather's estate. This is a case of migration in the right direction, for the farms and farm production. The place had been practically abandoned sev eral years, owing t its location on a high "and steep hill. Formerly the main highway between Bethel and Rochester villages went by this house. The dis tance by this route is about 10 miles. Several have planted potatoes. The Again it is said that no nation but the United States is fitted to restore peace in Mexico. That statement has a strangely familiar ring. It recalls that every time a nation gets into dis tress through internal discord there is a plea that the I'nited States can remedy the diflicutfy. However, the known attitude of Mexicans of nearly all classes ' towards the United States precludes the possibility of the United States being a peacemaker in the dis turbed nation. Of course, the United States could do it, but it might take several hundred thousand men to do it and the United States is not ready to sacrifice that number of men in order to intervene in a purely internal ruction in the neighboring country. Therefore, the talk about American in tervention in Mexico is rather farfetched. HOW DO THE VERMONT CANDI DATES STANDI Before Vermont Republicans select delegates to represent them at the Re publican national convention to nomi nate a candidate for president and a candidate for vice-president, these hav ing the electing power through the state convention have a right to know how the various candidates mentioned stand as retrards a pledged delegation and, also, if they are representing any special cliques having predilections toward certain candidates for presi dent. What Vermont really wants, we believe, is an unbiased delegation ready to size tip the situation in Chi cago and ready to ue their influence toward nominating tho man who seems at that time to meet the requirements best of all in the field. Vermont Re publican sentiment is at the present time divided up regarding the qualifica tions of several candidates, and it would be the unfair thing to attempt to deliver the votes of the state to any candidate, either by actual pledge r by recommendation in the state con vention. Therefore, it is only right the candidates tdiould frankly make statement of their position regarding the Republican candidates. Very lit tle is knonn by Ihe Republican voters of the state to the personal feel ings of these men who have been mentioned. A statement of willinpness to go to Chicago without bias might 1-clp the candidates quite materially. Yours may be Next! It all happens in a twinkling the unexpected accident!
