DIX CORP. ON MT. TABOR-DANBY M. I. Loud & Son, on New Haven-Waltham Road ; Arborio Co. at Barnet Thf gn of a reliable dealer and the world best Gasoline Every motor highway and byway throughout picturesque New Eng land and New York is a part of the long "Socony Trail", . the Same" Webb House, Wethersfield, Conn., in which, on May 21, 1781, Washington and Rochambeau planned the siege and capture of Yorktown.- FROM Wethersfield, Conn., to old Provincetown, down on tha Cape, and from there to Niagara Falls over the city boulevards and all along "the trail" you Can find the familiar Socony sign. It is the symbol of a superior product and supreme service. It has always been the policy of the Standard Oil Company of New York to anticipate the public needs for gasoline and motor oils. Along a newly opened road or in a recently developed suburb, the Socony sign of quality and service is invariably there to supply the needs of every motorist. And Socony service fulfills the weekly demand for one drum of gasoline or a hundred, with equal promptness and care. Socony gasoline is a standard-quality motor fuel always uniform, always clean, always powerful. It is chock full of mileage. It represents a half-century of experience and constant improvement. For permanent motoring satisfaction and economy, fill up regularly at the red, white and blue Socony sign. STANDARD OIL CO. OF NEW YORK gj?3 H2 SS53 rjEa py ffl Esll eLsj zM if j 1 REG. US. PAT. OFF. MOTOR GASOLINE Bids were opened in the Vermont state highway commissioner's oftir-e at Montpelier Tuesday afternoon upon five federal road projects and later in the afternoon Gov. P. V. Clement reviewed them and attached his aigna ture of approval to four of them, after which Mr. Bates and 0. H, Stilman. who represents-the federal government, conferred upon these four, and aotice that they had been awarded were sent to the persons having the lowest bids. Those awarded contracts were:' New Haven-Waltham job, M. F. Loud & Son, Quincy, Mass., $108,1 10.05. He had no competition. This bid is $20,000 lower than the lowest bid in July. The. Arborio company of Hart ford. Conn., got the Barnet job, ?28,- 497.20. The other bidder was Perini 4 Son ofSAshland, Mass., $3.10.60. On the Mt. Tabor-Panby job there were four bidders but the contract went to W. E. Dix corporation of Springfield for f 20.242.20. The other bidders were: Limburg and Street, Boston, $156,82.5.16; Aim Contracting company, Boston, $U.1,P!.38: Pascal Rieri,-Rutland, $12:i,R28.90. On the Dorset job there were five bidders, but the contract was awarded to (. L. Gregoire and company of Barre for $132,716.68. The other bidders were W. K. Dix corporation, $142,3!W.40; A loo Contracting company, $154,605.0; Daniel O'Connell'a Sons, Holyoke, Mass., $106,107.08; Limburg and Street, $170.:02.4fl. These last two jobs are a division of the Dorset-Danbr-Mt. Ta bor job which was 14 wiles long and upon which Mr. Ricei was the lowest bidder in July when lie bid $287,000. By dividing the job into two contracts and calling for new bids they reduced the contracts over $.10,000. The St. Albans job of .70 mile was rejected and it is likely that if the job is done at all it will be on a forced contract. John H. Button bid $23, 538 on the job, which is considerably above the eotimate. EAST MONTPELIER , VERSHIRE Misa Thelma Lynch and Frank Phepard were recently married. A daughter.

Sure Relief 6 Sell-ans Hot water Sure Relief FOR INSIOCSTiON Reading in The Times some weeks ago of a black beetle called blister beetle, which was threatening the po tato crop, in some localities in Ver mont, brought to your correspondent's recollection an incident which hap pened in a local postoffic in Vermont A beautiful luny moth was pinned to the wall with the following scandaliz ing label attached, "Dangerous, kill on apot." Concerning the blister beetle we can now say on the authority of one of the best of New England's entomol ogists, who, by the way, is always ready to gjve information upon the science of which he ia master, that. 'from the description of the pet ap pearing upon potatoes thi year, I should say it is the blister beetla, Epi canta Cineria. This ia of the same Limily as the old fashioned potato bug. It is also railed the Spanish fly, and, as I understand it, years ago was used to draw blisters. The larvae of the beetle are beneficial, as ther eat the eggs of the grasshoppers. Ihese beneficial inserts have parasites prey ing upon them. Undoubtedly the para sites were somewhat depleted this win ter, causing the blister beetle this year to multiply greatly. A spray of pari green or artenate of lead will kill the insect." Mr. and Mr. John Emery of North Montpelier were tecent guests of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Emery of this place. Richard Copping has recently pur chased a new Dodge, one of several lately sold in thi vicinity.

" The movie managers would be renting half of their theatres for store space, if it weren't for the automobile. It is typical of Americans that they took to the auto mobile as a matter of course just as they have to the movies and to every other great invention of the last half century. And the same thing has happened every time. Taking things as they come is a fine way to foster waste and ex travagance. ' . As regards tires, the come back is about due. People are pretty near through pay ing for something that isn't there when they look for it. ; What a man pays for in a tire is quality not a limited number of miles or the privi lege of getting a rebate 'in case the miles don't come up to the limit. J. S. Tires are guaranteed as to quality with no limi tation of mileage. And that holds just as good for the small car tire as for the biggest U. S. Tire we've got. There's only one stand ard of quality with U. S. and the size of the car has noth ing whatever to do with it IV We represent U.S. Tires in this town. You'll find it worth while to talk to us be fore you buy any more tires. United States Ti re s Palace Garage. H. G. Bennett Barre, Vt !l spending some weeks in New York City, is now at home. The weeds along the roadsides are most prolific breeding places for every kind of minimis pest.
