With favor able weather the Barre City band will give a concert every week for 13 weeks, this being an increase of three more than the maximum in past years.

DEMOCRATIC CITY COMMITTEE. Barre, Vt., May 22, 1020. ANNUAL PIN OUTPUT 14,000,000,000. Crop, With Needles, Is Worth $13,000, 000. Judging by the stupendous number of pins and hairpins manufactured in this country every year, the task of the fair sex in keeping up their "crowning glory and pinning their clothing to gether must be something terrific. Also, according to the number of nee dles manufactured each year, the American sewing must be some job. Fourteen billion toilet pins are pro duced by American factories annually. American mothers find it necessary to purchase 720.000,000 safety pins every year in order to keep the blessed little kiddies propertly harnessed. The yearly crop of metal hairpins is 1,250,000,000. Ncedlea of all kinds aggregate 235, 000,000 every 12 months. The value of this pin and needle crop is $13,000,000 at the factories. There are 4!) factories engaged iu the making of these articles, the total capi talization being $0,421,000. Back in 1850 there were only four pin factories in the United States. They had a combined capital of $104,000. It will thus be seen that the growth of this industry has been tremendous. J Horns and fish bones were used as a means of fastening clothing long before ! the discovery of pins and needles and thread. Among the remains of the lake dwellers of central Europe have been found a great number of pins some of bone, others of bronze. Some of them are quite fancy, having ornamental heads, while others are very crude. Some have double steins, and a few have been found that were made exact ly like the safety pins of to-day. Among Egyptian and Greek ruins have been found many specimens of artisti cally made pins. Ancient Roman bronze pins and bone hairpins, with fancy heads, have been found at Pompeii. Pins for the use of the toilet were first made in England during the 15th century. They were mode of iron wire. Brass wire pins were introduced from France in 1540 by Catherine Howard, Queen of Henry VIII. The foundation for the manuiacture of the present-day pin commenced with the invention of the process of drawing wire. For many years all pin manufacturing was con fined to France and Germany, where this process was invented. Brass wire pins were first made in England in 182tJ. In the earf-lUvs of the pin making it was a tnvSl tedious process. Thev were made by filing a proper length of wire to a point and then twisting a fine piece of wire to the other end, thus forming a head, llus required 14 dif ferent operations by as many work men, all of which was done by hand, as machinery had not been invented. In 1775 the American Congress, rea lilting the absolute necessity for pins in the development of the civilization of the country, offered a bonus of JC50 for the first 25 down domestic pins equal to those imported from England. In 17f7 Timothy Harris of England devised the first solid-headed pin. American inventive genius, as usual, continued on the job until the best idea was hit upon. Lemuel Wellman Wright, ) of this county, invented a machine in I 1824 which gave the industry much J headway. His machine made solid heads ! to the pins by a process similar to the making of nails, by driving a portion of a pin itself into a counter sunk hole. This was done automatically. Seven years Inter, in 1SS1, John Ire land Howe, a doctor in Bcllevue hospi tal, New York, invented a machine for making perfect solid-headed pins. A company was Organized and a factory started at Derby, Conn. The modern automatic pin machine completes the pin in all details except the coloring and polishing. Samuel Slocnm of Connecticut, in vented the first pin sticking machine. Dr. Howe utilized it in his factory in 1841. This machine is almost human in its workings. One workman feeds it with pins and another feeds it . with papers. I he packages come out at the other end of the machine exactly as tbe ladies buy them at the dry goods stores. The Chinese were the first people in the world to use steel needles. The Chi nese needles slowly made their way westward until they were brought into Europe by tbe Moors. The earliest needles known to history did not have eyes, but were like awls, and were ued for making holes in the skins, through which long roots of plants, or leather thongs were passed and then tied. Ijiter a hole was bored through one end of the stone or bronze keedle, through which the root or )cather was passed, and thus dragged through the hides as punched. uch needles are found in the remain of the stone age. Bone needles with eyes are found in the reindeer caves of France and the lake dwellers of central Europe. It was not until after 18M5 that nee dles were made and finished entirely by machinery Dearborn Independent.

Among the thousands' of men dis abled in the World war, there are about 200 practically totally deaf, and 100 with peech defects caused by wounds in jaw, neck or throat. The majority of these men, while atill in army hospi tals, received lip-reading and speech training. They are now taking voca tional traninj?' under the federal board for vocational education. Soldiers and nailors who did not re ceive instruction in lip-reading and : lessons for the correction of speech de- ! fects are now in training under the I MipcrvUton of a special agent of the ! federal board. One of the moot interecting speech defect caes is that of Private Henry i ,1.

In every day lan- j mtaffe. he could neither speak nor un- ' tlcrtand speech. His hospital record' showed that before the operation, Koopman spoke KiiRlish without an accent.
