POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT. POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT. FRANK W. AGAN His C aaipaign Since Mr. Agan began his speaking campaign, his political stock has gone up by leaps and bounds. "Vyhen he made his first important political speech in Felchville last month, he said: "I am the 'wet' candidate and I stand here on two feet and admit it, but I am not advocating the open saloon. I started pul 18 years ago to do something for temperance and the result was the local option law, the best temper- ance measure Vermont ever had !" i . . Vermont voters like a man who stands up and frankly and courageously tells whatTie stands for. Even if they disagree with him they can respect a man who has no "ifs" or "perhapses" in his make-up. They know where to find him. They know he will do as he agrees. Frank W. Agan to-day is the leading candidate for governor because of that faculty , for tejling the truth, telling it without any frills, telling it in his own words and without regard to whether it is "good politics" or just plain facts, told man-fashion, so everybody can un derstand what he's getting at. Although he admits being a wet candidate, ivfr. Agan can point to the record of the local option law, its en forcement and results, as first-class, constructive work for temperance. Under the old prohibitory law, there were at least 100 towns in which liquor was sold contrary to law. In the first year of local option, 92 towns voted for license. In the last year of local option only 13 voted "Yes" and licenses were issued in only nine towns. We say that was good temperance work. When 155 voters voted away our rights to control the liquor business in our own way, the people of. Ver mont were thunderstruck. They had not consented to national prohibition. , They had not given their repre sentatives any mandate about it. The first chance they got they repudiated the action of those 155 men. As against 13 towns voting "Yes" in 1917, 136 towns voted "Yes" last March as a protest against the 18th amendment and the Volstead act. Vermont repudiated the action of its Legislature by a vote of 16,075 to 11,320, a larger majority of protest than the majority for the orign inal local option law ! That's the secret of the success of the Agan campaign Vermonters resent having anything "put over" on them. They like to do their own thinking and regulating. They don't want 155 men to say that the state of Ver mont shan't run its own business. . . At the same meeting in Felchville, Mr. Agan had something to say about cider: "Taking up the cider issue, the speaker said tliat if a armer buys cider at a mill he has to certify to a govern ment inspector and give a. bond that the cider will be made into vinegar, what disposition is made of it, when, to whom, and, at any time, the government inspector may appear and demand the right to inspect the product. "If at any time the cider shows over of 1 per cent of alcohol, that farmer is a criminal in the eyes of the law. r " 'How would you like a government inspector call ing at your house to see how hard your cider had got?' " demanded Mr. Agan. "He said the housewife who takes the juice of black berries or elderberries or any other fruit and adds sugar becomes a moonshiner. " 'If your wife is caught on the street with a package of hops she is violating the Volstead act and is subject to prosecution,'" he declared. ' This is bringing this 18th amendment and the Vol stead act pretty near home, fellow-voters. How do you like it? How do you like the notion of having your homes invaded by paid sleuths of the federal government? How do you feel about what those 155 men did to you? If you don't like it. vote for Frank W. Agan. If you like it, vote for one of his opponents. Agan will voice your protest and make you a good governor. THE AGAN CLUB of LUDLOW ALLEN D. BALL, Secy. WHITE RIVER JUNCTION Nearly 500 penple attended the dance' given by Fred H. Perkins Fri day evening to celebrate the comple tion and opening of his new garage on Union street.

There was a magic for small boys in the ohl barn. There was glamour in the mingled aroma of liar no leather, mammonia and hay. There was drudg ery for you in the harness rmin and revolting toil in the stable, but the hayloft was a place of dreams. Dainty shafts of sunlight crept in through knotholes. Above, in the cu pola, pigeons cooed softly all day long and flew back and forth with whistling wings. Below, you could hear the horse champ-champ and stirring now and then with heavy hoofs and long draw n sighs. The perfume of dry clover and timo thy enveloped you.

Manse and Tavern Were Once Neigh bors. In many New England towns the old manses w ill lw found clone to n.n:c ancient taern as well a hard by the village rhiireh. For all their Put it mi ca! ordinances, our forefathers ipiite reversed our modem law, which up to the time of prohibition forbade the sale of liquor within a certain dUl.iure of any church, and granted licences un der the express condition that the tav ern must be located near by. Thcr:' were two reasons for this: The deadly atmosphere of the unhealed meeting houses in winter demanded some pl.-u-e near at band where the male portion of the congregation at leat might re pair lietween eessions hence the 'wide open houses of entertainment" which were often kept by men of the high est standing in the town and cliunh. The law avainst evVi..ive tippling was very severe and the nearness to the parson's dwelling gave him a better opportunity to watch out for offender.. Recent investigation ba brought to light the fact that around the mmer from the South Parih mane, v-a once located a tavern known as '" The Sign of the Horc-hoe." kept by one Deacon William handler, who w a man of good repute, according to the rei-ord. Though "undue tippling" was fmw ned upon, moderate conuniption of piritit ou drinks was universally indulged in even by the strict dominies them selves. So general wa their indnl geni in a little for "the tom-h l:e" that the total abstinence of Rev. Mr. Marh of the old Congrega ioa! ehnrch in lUddam. Conn , made hm famous. Wben the t-wnpeop a site(J in tbe "rai-ing" cf th mane in 118 he would allow- no drinkin aisd th event i 'ill referred to in l-al history the "cold water raisin" Oritin Herald. Signs of the summer and the silly season multiply. The sea serpent, has arrived. This year it has legs to it, and has been washed ashore in the shape of a corpse on the Argyllshire coast. It does not sound a very handsome corpse, but. the inhabitants of Argyllshire nev er lie, andwe uccept the details of their L "sea monster ' as accurate. "Report describes it as t,he size of a horse with four very stubby short legs, the body being covered with cream-col-Kued fur about three inches long." It is exactly a description that would satisfy the passport .authorities, but from what there is of it the "sea monster" sounds uncommonly like the populuar idea' of a polar bear. How ever, this is much too simple a sugges tion;' at this time of the year we can not have our sea serpents, even dead ones, explained in this contemporary manner. U may, the report adds, "be a mam moth buried in the ice age and now dig lodged by sea action." It may, of course; as the bishop of Exeter re marked to the enthusiastic visitor who said, "How like Switzerland!" when confronted with Torquay, "Yes, very like Switzerland, my dear lady only there are no mountains here." The monster sounds very much like a raaniv moth, only the mammoth was the size of an elephant and not' a horse, and its hide was not cream colored, un less the cream of Argyllshire happens to be reddisk brown. As a matter of fact, it is fatal to start explaining your sea serpent. "Never explain anything," is the guid ing principle of all its really accom plished discoverers Sea serpents are not there to be explained, any more than giant gooseberries are there to be eaten. Both exist as a part of the cal-1 endar and you cannot make a pudding out of Tuesday afternoon, or enter into an historical julification of the week end after next. Both serpents and gooseberries have got to be accepted simply as evidence that summer has arrived. Just as spring makes some people! break out into poetry, summer makes another class of writers break out into sea serpents and giant gooseberries. One of these days some genius will dis cover both of them simultaneously the gooseberry will be found, inside the serpent, together with a bunch of keys, ' a perfectly good bottle of horseradish sauce, and a return ticket to Cheadle Heath with the date chewed off. In the meantime it is all excellent evidence that the world is getting back to it pre-war form. But one could wish that the Arkyllshire specimen had left its legs behind. They are not worn by the best sea serpents. Manchester Guardian. Arthur Griffith, Editor of "Young Ire land," and Sinn Fein Political Head. Dublin, Aug.'O. Arthur Griffith, edi tor of Y'oting Ireland, and tbe political head of Sinn Fein, is said to be one of the most isolated and inaccensiile men in Ireland. The few visitors daily received by him say they are impressed by the unpretentiousness of his sur roundings. He is as difficult to see, they say, as any big American politi cal leader. Xo person not known to Griffith may visit him in his office without -ircvious arrangements made by someone high in the confidence of Sinn Fein. The sit uation is much the same as a stringer attempting to interview with a .-abinet officer in Washington. Relieved that the irksome prelimi naries have ended the stranger is t.ik-t en down a side street, ushered into an unimposing doorway and led tip two flights of narrow, unpainted steps to an, office. Inside the front door the stranger is confronted with N a pine board partition with one small door through which he is taken. He passes through a scene familiar in any small town newspaper into- an uninviting room where Griffith holds forth. The . .' . . e t. i- il.- left is that the Republican government is ruling the country properly but hav ing Home difficulty with aq army of occupation and number of police men. "Our volunteers are maintaining or der where representatives of the Brit ish government could not, our courts are organized and respected and oth er branches of our government ate working smoothly," said Mr. tlriflitli to a -correspondent. Griffith's sphere is only political, ti e planning and execution of force of arms being under jurisdiction of the volunteer army. The Highbrow Will.

It has been stated that a warrant for his arrest is ready but many leading Sinn Feiners believe gov ernment officials consider him a moder ating influence and worth more direct ing the party's activities than locked upon as a martyr in jail. ' Griffith is as unassuming as his sur roundings are unpretentious. To one who does not express convictions cn the Irish question and therefore safety; does not have any,' Griffith leaves out-! standingly the impression that he has ! ceased to believe any English govern- incnt in Ireland exists.
