The list of bad roads being issued oc
casionally by the state highway de
partment is a valuable guide to motor

get to a certain destination are willing
to take a chance at almost anything
once at least.
.Gov. Roberts of Tennessee does not
fear those pledged votes for suffrage
in his legislature as Gov. Clement pro
fesses to fear them in Vermont, for
Gov. Roberts will call his legislature
together notwithstanding that enough
votes are said to be pledged to ratify
the woman's suffrage amendment to
the national constitution.
If New England is assured of coal
under a priority order there will be one
serious obstacle removed from the
pathway of progress during the com
ing fall and winter. Another serious
handicap still exists in the shape of
poor shipping facilities, due to clut
tered lines or lack of freight cars, but
that .situation may be expected to be
cleared up before long. With that lat
ter problem. solved there should be lit
tle to block a season of marked pros
perity for this section of the country.
A statement in the Rutland News
that "building operations are complete
ly paralyzed throughout Vermont"
, does not apply to Barre, in which city
there is quite a volume of construction
work going on at the present time.
Contracts started or nearing completion
would probably aggregate over a hun
dred thousand dollars, at a conserva
tive estimate, ine DUiming operat ions
have been good' for a year and promise
to continue so for the remainder of the
present at least.
The Hartncss section of the Vermont
prefet professes to see many straws
showing a trend of public sentiment in
favor of the Springfield man for gov
ernor. It is perhaps possible that Hart
ness is picking up some votes as the
time for the primaries approaches, but
it is certainly just as true that Jhe
other candidates are gaining aupporters
as the nearness of the primaries forces
, the voters to make a choice. The ques
tion is, which one is picking up vote
the fastest. It would be our idea that
Hartness was about third man in the
process of gathering votes.
One of the many surprises of the
census of Vermont, already revealed
and to be revealed, is the announce
ment that Grand Isle county, which
had been counted as among those like
ly to lose in population, was actually
a gainer, having added 23 people togts
population since the census ten years
ago. The island county thus arrested
the decline which set in remarkably
strong from 1000 to 1910 when the pop
ulation dropped off 701. Grand Isle
is the smallest county in the state and
is also one of the finest in some respects.
If any of that party of horseback
vacationists now visiting Vermont are
gifted with the bump of observation,
together with the faculty for putting
their impressions into words, they
could present a very interesting de
scription of the beauties of Vermont as
teen from horseback. Cantering along
at a comfortable gait, they are in a po
sition to see many of the beauties
which are denied to motorists, whoe
one object seems to be to cover as
much ground as possible and who can
not, therefore, observe the wonderful
natural attractions of the region
through which they are traeling. A
horseback vacation tour is somewhat
ld-fahioned but for that very reason
i likely to come back into fashion to
a considerable extent.

It goee without saying that the Amer
ican athletic team, which leaves this
afternoon for Belgium to participate in
the 1920 Olympics at Antwerp, will be
one f the, leading contestants in the
great international meet. The team
has some of the beet talent that can
been gathered together from one end of
the continent to the other; and tome
of them, in addition to having given
remarkable performances In their own
land, have taken part in other Olympic
games, thus giving them the benefit
of experience in International arenas.
There it no disposition to be unduly
boastful of the athletic manhood of the
United Statee, but there is apprecia
tion of the fact that the United States
has not yet entered upon a stage of
decline in athletics, which stage, so
the students of history declare, marks
the decline of national preeminence as
well. The American athletic star is
yet in the ascendancy. Therefore, it is
expected that the United State will
give a good account of "herself in the
international competition. The 'ath
letes depart for the foreign shore with
the best wiehes and a good measure of
confidence of the American people.
May each and everyone of them strive,
to the uttermost even though the odds
may seem to be against some of tlwn.
Doing that, there is a possibility that
the banner of victory will come back to
the United State. In any event their
competitors will know that they have
been in a real contest.

Professional pike fishing in Lake
Champlain may never loom large in the
industrial activities of Vermont but it
is a good example of what a little fore
sight eight years ago on the part of the
state fish and game department has
accomplished. Pike were hard to get
until then when fry were placed iff the
lake at selected spots.
To-day, the professional fishermen
are said to be averaging $4 a day even
in the off summer season and a large
number are fishing daily about the
reefs and in the deeper waters. The
big pike harvest, of course, is in the
winter when they are caught through
the ice and the price is better. 1
Fishing in Lake Champlain is now
declared to be profitable and an in
creasing number of people each year
are making it their principal source of
livelihood. With further encourage
ment, the industry can be made of still
greater assistance in furnishing liveli
hood to the men who go down to the
lake in ships. Fresh water fishermen
in the Great Lakes are not only earn
ing good money pleasantly for them
selves but they are making a valuable
contribution to the food supply of this
country and Canada. A little vision of
future posibilities in other industrial
line may "turn the trick" again. Rut

Coolidge Among Old Friends.
"Coolidge day" in Plymouth, Ver
mont, was a halcyon, and a vociferous
occasion. Some three thousand Ver
monters took the trouble to go to the
birthplace of the lieutenant governor
that has been, the governor that is,
and the vice-president that hopes to
be. One sees the house, the ."modest
farmhouse" with its "little porch." Old
farmhouses in which the greatness of
the fufure was cradled were always
modest. All porches whereupon one'
old friends and neighbor congratulate
the eminent, illustrious emigrant are
necessarily small. They are so choaen.
So they contrast with the spaciou vis
tas and lordly arcades of political dis
tinction. "Vermont is my birthright,"
said the governor, with entire felicity.
"Here," Mr. Coolidge said, with that
fine poetry which is innate or imported
among all virtuous Green mountain
eers, "one get close to nature in the
mountains, in the brooks, the waters
of w hVh hurry to the seaj in the lakes,
shining lik silver in their green Bet
tings fields tilled, not by machin
ery but by the brain and hand of man."
One sees the charming country in one
of the mot delightful of July day.
The old folks, the old friends, may not
have known Mr. Coolidge too inti
mately in the past. Now he is famous,
deservedly so, and they all like to put
the good old honest .Vermont hand,
hard with the steering wheel, into hi.
"He was a steady boy," say his father
"not given to drinking and carousing
like' some folks." It it possible that
even the unsteadiest of Vermonters ere
pretty fairly steady now, not drinking
nor carousing to excess or by habit.
But Governor Coolidge is the kind of
character that is forcible and respect
ed everywhere. Vermont raises a lot
of people with the salient character
istics and mental and moral protub
erances that are hi.
A curious race to our assimilative
and imitative New Yorkers, Vermont
ers have their own thoughts, live their
own lives; on the whole, don't care a
rap for the rest of us. It seems that
they are in a golden, an Elysian youth
of the world still. For Mr. Coolidge
emit thee purple joys: "My folks are
happy and contented. They belong to
themselves, live within their income
and fear no man."
The old happy age of the world. Still
by the wild vine sucks the bee where
Amaryllis lives in state, whether in
Vermont or in Trinacria. Some of
us may be happy enough to fear no
man, contenting ourselves with mere
ly fearing the right woman. Some of
us may belong to ourselves. All of
us ought to be happy and contented.
The golden lads and lassies and all '.lie
people that are able to live within their
income in these austere times must be
a wonder and a joy. Few of us on
this tightened and suffering island can
appreciate the inimitable happiness of
Governor Coolidge 's Vermonters. They
can live within their income. If Mr.
Coolidge can communicate to the rest
of us the secret of that art, he will be
elected vice-president and president and
everything else as good. New York

The "governor pave but a brief
speech" at Plymouth, Vt., the other
day. It will be remembered that Lin
coln gave but a brief speech at Ot.tj
burg; but the world know that little
speech by heart to-day. Governor Cool
idge few remarks at Plymouth are
likely to be remembered long. They
went to the heart of a matter that all
men and women feel They brought
up the country air, the country faith,
the country sincerity, and all the
thing that go with the country inheri
tanre. "It i a great heritage to be
reared here in the hill of Vermont,
aaid Governor Coolidge; "to he given
the thrift, and understanding, and all
that i nol.leet to mankind. The farm
erand epeil!y the farmer on t'e
New Kngland hill doe every stroke
of hi work in the eve of nature and

The Mighty Dollar!
We hear it often said that a man's success in the world to-day is meas
ured very largely by the amount of wealth that he may possess but is this
an accurate statement? ' .... ,', (
We all know that few truly great men have been rich men, or at least,
men who would be called rich to-day, and we even know of instances where
great wealth has been a handicap to professional leadership, but m spite of
all this, history supplies ample proof to the fact that all great men have
recognized the importance of thrift as a vital force in their own lives and a
contributing factor to success.
Carnegie, Rockefeller, Sage, Field, and countless others, have been
wise philanthropists because they knew from the school of experience the
value ofthrift .ngpiratjon from th , virtues of thrift without being slaves
to its vices; they paid respect without practicing idolatry.

governor of Massachusetts went on,
speaking to hi old neighbors, "by
right of birth; Vermont it roy birth
right, and it is a noble and high birth
right for all to have. Living up to it
entails a very great obligation, for
here one gets close to nature, in . the
mountains, in the brooks, the waters
of which hurry to the sea, in the lakes
shining like tilver in their green set
ting, fields tilled not by machenery but
by the brain and hand of man." It all
goes into the child of the hills, and
comes, out In resolution and achieve
ment. It all came out when Dewey
threaded the channel at Manila; it
came out when Coolidge, having put
his hand to the plough on Beacon hill,
kept the furrow going straight through
the ranks af the striking policemen,
who did not know a "side-hill plough"
from a handsaw.
"In the schoolhouse up yonder, a
monument to popular education." so
the governor went on "in the church
across the way, ignorance-and aggres
sion are done away with. There the
voung are taught to realize the educa
tional condition of law and order and
the great privilege of being Americans,
going on as Americans, faithful to
themselves and all mankind." Just
that; going on, and the glory of it, as
Americans. That i the way the peo
ple are going on. They will like the
message from the hills, for their heri
tage is about the same as the gover
nor's. It is a heritage of simple pa
triotic determination of law and order
with thrift and prosperity. A little
speech, but big enough for all the peo
ple to stand on a a platform. Bos
