Capture of the man who has been setting fire to hotels in Boston during the past week brings a feeling of re lief, for, although his five attempts were unsuccessful, one can easily ima gine what a terible tragedy might have been the result of his perverted mind's activity. To-day, a new style, if unfavor ably criticized by women, is doomed to oblivion. - One reason for the un usual popularity of our Palm Beach suits is, they are so becoming to men that they get the approval of the observ ing eye of women. - Of course to men the comfort and coolness of the suits are the main appeal, as we men are so indifferent about our personal appear ance.

BROOKFIELD Those reiterated official statements from Berlin that Germany must keep faith with the allies under the Versailles treaty read well fro foreign con sumption. The next thing is, do they have the right kind of effect on the German people? They may be mean- irgless, empty words so far as the German populace is concerned. F. H. Rogers & Company The Democrats in convention assem bled gave President Wilson a splendid ovation, but Democrats in private walks of life have not been giving him such rousing support as the demonstra tion at Ean Francisco would seem to ifcdicate.

The automobile accident in East Mid dlebury in which one car went over an embankment because the driver was unable to determine the location of an oncoming car because the latter vehicle carried only one headlight is one that might easily happen again and again on a narrow road.

There is no disposition on the part of the public to railroad any persons through the courts or to secure conviction against those who were not immediately concerned irt the escape; but there is an earnest de sire to get the principal and to exact punishment on the wilful contributors in the escape. The respect in which the government of the United States ought to be held demands complete clearing up of the matter. BAPTIST SLATE ELECTED. The assertion from San Francisco that Governor Clement of Vermont was In a close race with Governor Roberts of Tennessee to be the first to call a special session of the legislature to act on ratification is denied by the for' mer, who says that he has no present Intention of railing the Vermont legis lature together. The whole story was of doubtful authenticity to one who had been acquainted with Clement's at litude regarding a special session. Pos libly the story was concocted for the purpose of stampeding Clement into railing the session, in whkh event the ittempt has fallen flat. Clement is not to be easily stampeded, either oq. the liquor question or the suffrage que lion. Opposition to J. C. Brougher Not Enough to Defeat Him.' .Buffalo, X.

Tustin of Philadelphia was elected, the tellers reported at yesterday's session. Rev. J. C. Brougher of Los Angeles was elected as one of the 13 members of the execu tive committee.

Cross, who has been visiting London expressed herself hopefully with regard to the future of her country. "There is a promise of a good har vest," she said, "the sugar beet crop is estimated at 700,000 metric tons, of which 400,000 tons will be available for export. The political outlook ii also good, the new constitution having provided a sound working basis. Its democratic character afforded protec tion for the minorities in the German districts which could not be given up. "The Germans," she remarked, "will not have Mich a hard time in the re public as we had when they were in power." The children of Czecho slovakia are being organized into a junior Red Cross, men of the Serbian army as sisting. Over 3.000 schools were built in one year in the eastern part of -the country, which was very much ne glected under the Magyar rule, and the children are being taught the impor tance of personal hygiene. That Word "National" No law is stronger than the force of public opinion behind it, and like wise no bank is stronger than the c haracter of the men who manage and direct its affairs. Now the interesting point in this connection is that the character of the management of a National bank is determined not by the bank itself altogether, but under the direct influence of a guiding hand at Washing ton, D. C. V The United States places the responsibility and the directors must meet the same in just one way and that is- the straight way, and there is no deviation from the course, no compormise, no arbitration, and no res ervations whatever. It has been said that no corporation of a private nature doing business to-day places as much individual responsibility upon its management as rests upon the directors of a National bank, and this is undoubtedly true. Supervision at Washington, ; examinations by experts, frequent inqui sitions and suggestions of a most searching nature, have a constant ten dency to force strict adherence to safe and ethical banking procedure. For this and many other reasons, people, who have money to deposit, instinctively prefer the National banks, and why shouldn't this be so? They know that the National banks offer what amounts to banking insur ance as well as ordinary protection through wise management ; they know that the United States government is constantly watching their little de posit as it would watch its own, and all this at nq expense, to them whatever! This bank offers you a large capital, surplus andprofits for your pro tection, all of the facilities which any serviceable banking institution of fers, and beside all .this the added protection of United States supervision. If you do not know what it means to be under the control of the United States government, ask anyone who has had this experience. There is just one way .with Uncle Sam, and that is the right way. .

Pheps I 4n 3 Cummings & Lewis DRUGGISTS MUTUAL FRIENDSHIP Mutual friendship means friendship that is reciprocated or appreciated. The word "Mutual," which is always applied to the old type savings banks, means recip rocally acting or for the common good. In plain language, it means the depositors have the benefit of all the profits, a part of which is reserved, according to law, for the protection of deposits from possible loss, andihe remainder is distributed among the accounts of the depositors at an equal rate of interest.
