The general idea of a German cabi net is a piece of bric-a-brac that can be broken up easily. Burlincrton's tax rate of $2.70 may teem large to Burlington people but to most of the people of the state it look quite ordinary or even below ordinary. Frank Agan of Ludlow, one of the Republican candidates for governor of Vermont, has the distinction of having been born in the same town where Gov ernor Calvin Coolldge first saw the lifcht of day, Plymouth being the town. Notoriety is coming rapidly to this lit tle Windsor county town. Re-opening of the , Barre granite plants with a minimum wage of eight dollars a day to granite cutters has had the effect of draining the labor market ' in this vicinity to a remarkable de gree. There is great need of an influx of men for work in various lines of unskilled occupations, and no slight call for skilled workmen, because the gran ite plants have attracted those who are at all qualified to work there. Vermont cities and towns are expe riencing less difficulty than usual in retaining their public school teachers or a filling vacancies that exist in a few instances a the result of resignation or other cause.' The reason is not Jiard to find when one considers the salary increases which were voted in very many of the communities of the state. Down in the southern part of the state, where repose the gubernatorial candidates of Uartness, Babbitt and Agan, rumor has it that State High way Commissioner Stoddard Bates is supporting the candidacy of Curtis E. Emery of Xewport for governor. That would not be at all surprising, because many other Vermonters are doing the same thing. If Commissioner Bates be lieves in Emery he is justified in sup porting him, and there should be no questions asked or motives impugned. In refusing to intercede at this time in behalf of the'womsn suffrage cause to the extent of urging Republican gov ernors in recalcitrant states to call spe cial session of their legislatures to act on ratification, Candidate Harding shows a sense of the proprieties. He is merely a private citizen at the pres ent time and has no more authority or prestige than comes to such private citizens through having Wn chosen to represent a party in a national election. Moreover, be would be copying very closely after President Wilson were he to urge Republican governors to call special' sessions. Wilson has done so repeatedly in connection with states of Capital Savings Bank and Trust Co. Montpelier, Vt. .Commencing May 1 and until further notice this bank will close on Saturdays at noon, but will be open for business as usual Saturday even ings from 6:30 to 8 o'clock.

Apppointmenfc of women to seven positions out of 21 on the executive committee of the Republican party's nntional committee indicates that a wide-open appeal is going to be made to the women voters of the country when they are enfranchised. Twenty years back, or even 10 years back, poli ticians of the party would have held up their hands in horror at the thought of having even one woman as assistant doorkeeper for the national committee. But the Republican party is showing its adaptability to new conditions. Those who are interested in floricul ture will certainly find something of benefit by attending the flower show to be held by the Barre Woman's club Friday and Saturday of this week at the vacant store next door to The Times office.' These exhibitions, held each summer by the club women, are intended as an incentive to the people to engage in flower growing aa a means of beautifying the home and as an in fluential agency toward increasing the pleasure of life. There is an inspira tion, too, in a good exhibition of flow ers. People of Barre and vicinity should not fail to take advantage of the exhi The civil warfare between factions in Londonderry, Ireland, has gone to such a stage that it would seem ad visable on the part of the British gov ernment to take steps to end the blood shed. Admittedly, it is a delicate situ ation with the nationalists on the one side and the unionists on the other; and intervention might result in the extension of the warfare to many other places to the southward of London derry until, eventually, the whole of Ireland might become involved. In tervention without tact might prove cry disastrous, not, perhaps, to the British government, but to the people of Ireland, who are becoming inflamed over the issue between the nationalists and unionists. No government envies the British government its task; yet ail the governments recognize the need of a strong hand in terminating the bloodshed. Great Britain' problem is such as to challenge the greatest mind. rj 1 14 15 J6 Having admitted that he was entire ly out of order in his aspersions on the Wood campaign, Nicholas Murray But ler will now turn back to his job of running Columbia university. Edu cators, more or less cloistered, do not always remain in touch with the ! thought of the people; or, at least, their minds are apt to ran on tracks of their own building independent of the trend of events. Butler may have suffered from running on an exclu sive track. THE "WET" BATTLE IN SAN FRANCISCO. There is an unmistakable leaning among many leading Democrats of the country in. favor of a declaration in favor of a "wet" Interpretation of the nt.tional prohibition amendment, that is, as "wet" an interpretation as a dry thing can be. Postmaster General Burle son is for a liberal interpretation. President Wilson is reported to be in clined to the same view. Two of the cendidates for the presidential nomi nation are anti-prohibition. Many of the rank and file are believers iubring- As June is the begin ning of the comfort loving season when shirt sleeves are in tri umphant evidence, due attention should be paid to the shirts which furnish the sleeves. - It means that the man nervously fastidious about wearing only "correct" clothes should be particular as to the fabrics of his shirts. It follows as the night the day, that he will se lect his shirts in this store. Suits for summer ' some Palm Beach, some Mohair, some are chev iots, serges and homespuns,- some double breasted, and all are good money's worth at from $18 to $60. LETTERS TOTHE EDITOR To Use Barre Granite in Memorial. Editor, Barre Times: Toward the close of the World war, the national body'of the Ladies pf the Grand Army of the Republic requested, through the Bugle Call, a paper devoted exclusively to the interests of the Ladies of the G. A. R., that all circles send the names of husbands, fathers, sons, grandsons and nephews of their members wjio were called to the colors in the great World war. Not all circles reported, but the names poured in until there were 3,175 reported. Section circle of Chicago sent the largest number of any circle, 10U stars on their service flag. It was very interesting to read the names and see the different branches of service in which our boys were engaged. There were majors, several captain and a number of lieutenants in the Service. Captain John W. KUehell circle, Pana, 111., have awarded the contract for the erection of a memorial to the men of Pana township who enlisted in the recent World war and have suc ceeded in collecting the necessary funds, $8,000, for same. The design of the proposed memorial, which is to be con structed wholly of white Barre gran-H ite, is a group of three figures upon a base five feet high, 10x7 feet broad. The group is a goddess of liberty eight and one-half feet high,, standing be tween a soldier and a sailor, each of these to measure seven feet in height. This handsome cenotaph is to be erect ed in Kitchell park. Capt Kitchell, for whom the circle was named, was a worthy soldier and for many years a resident of Pana. His widow is a member of the circle that bears his name. This body of earnest workers, though not large "in point of membership, is doing fine work along patriotic lines, as is attested bv the effort mentioned. Mrs. H. E. Flagg, Dept. Patriotic In structor. Ladies of the G. R. R. East Braintree, Vt., June 23, 192q. F. H. Rogers & Company ing the matter in as a campaign issue. It remains to be seen whether Bryan and a few men thinking along similar lines can hold back the rush of senti ment in favor of sharp revision of the Volstead act. The divergence -between the views of these two factions makes the San Francisco convention stand out as full of prospects of a great shake-up. Victory for the "wet" element would, of course, tiring the liquor issue into the national campaign and further com plicate the situation. POST MILLS Crystal Lake lodge of Odd Fellow's conferred the second and third de crees upon C. Levett Sargent of Thet ford last Saturday evening.
