"Keep Strong" The story is told that when the Chemical Bank of New York was organized a cen tury or more ago it had on its directorate one man who seldom took part in the discus sions of his fellow directors. He did, however, continually urge them to "Keep strong." This sound counsel was apparently followed and the Chemical Bank became one of the strongest banks in the country. - This counsel to "Keep strong" which proved sound in the case of the Chemical Bank has been steadily followed by the trustees of the Montpelier Savings Bank & Trust Company throughout the nearly fifty years of its service in this community. As a result of this sound investment policy of the management "The t)ld Bank on the Corner" is recognized as one of the strongest banks in Vermont. During our business experience of nearly half a century we havehad the confidence and the co-operation of the people in our community; through their support, we have grown in size, in strength and in ability to give satisfactory service. We men tion this spirit of friendly co-operation because we believe it may appeal to you when you have occasion to open a savings account or a checking account and wish to have back of you the strength, the stability and the friendly spirit of one of Vermont's strongest banks. , Because we have found that Banking by Mail is a convenience to many of our out of town customers we give to this department of our business prompt service. All busi ness coming to us through the mails' receives the attention of one of our officers. We shall be glad if we can be of service to you in this department.

High prices of materials and increased overhead have macie necessary a stricter economy along merchantile lines. Advertising should be'eonsidered as well as the commodities in which merchants deal. By choosing only those publications whose circulation is accurately measured, you not only practice economy in your advertising, but are assured that your money is buying a definite quantity of circulation. The Times' circulation is measured by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. Advertising placed in its columns is an economical investment. last few years.

Two notable sales of Jersey cattle! were held in the county this week". The first one was the dispersal sale of J. C. Greene's herd of purebred Jesreys on Wednesday, August 2o, at his farm in ICast Randolph. This herd was com posed of exceptionally fine and well- brud animals which were the result of Mr. Greene's life-long experience as a breeder of Jerseys. A number of ani mals were closely related to Success ful Queen, world's champion for pro duction and reproduction. Most of the aqimala were .sired by Pogis 00th of. Hood farm 5th, 1 16,179, a bull owned by Mr. Green until this spring and who had register of merit daughters. It was very gratifying tjo see these ani mals sold to Orangecounty men as all but one of the head som are to stay within the county t The second sale was held by the Cen tral Oranee County Jersey (Hub at the Tunbridge fair grounds on August 26. At this wale 26 head of purebred Jer seys and 43 head of grade Jerseys were sold. It was estimated that over 300 people were present at this sale. Among the purebred animals consigned there were some exceptionally fine individ uals which sold well. There were over 30 consigners to this sale and as far as can be learned every one is pleased with the results. The club is already planning for anot her better sale for next year. On Friday, Mr. J. E. Carrigan, assist ant county agent leader, assisted the count? agent in making a .survey of farm bureau work in the county.

I BELIEVE IN Personal liberty, the constitu tion of Vermont and the right of every state to administer its own internal affairs; The submission to the voters of every amendment that in fringes or invades our, state constitution ; A road law that will permit a scientific, state-wide plan for better highways and, more Z' help for town roads; A lump sum for legislators and shorter legislative sessions. I AM OPPOSED TO The Kule of any minority; The eighteenth amendment federal prohibition and Volstead enforcement act ; r the Any further funds; waste of public Patchwork roadmaking. If nominated and elected, I will do all I can to further these ends. WITH MITCHELL LEWIS And a E12 Ca?t cf All Stars This I3 One of the 3ig .Things in Tictures and Everyone Should Avail Thmsejves to See it To Be Shown at the Regular Admissions Also "THE ilEART 3NATCHER" A Fox Two-Act Comedy And "The Latest News Weekly" TO-MORROW TOM MIX, In ihe Hg Western Feature ''Dessert Love" A Drama That Ties the Imagination in a Bow Knot Also OUTING CHESTER rnd BOBBY COMES MARCHING HOME I it HIS FITNESS Frank W. Agan is a self-made man. His par ents were just plain folks, poor like most Vermont ers. They gave him common schooling. He went to high school, then went to work. 1 Successful manufacturer, inventor of im proved methods, employer of well-paid, satisfied labor, energetic local booster and benefactor, faith ful public servant, champion of the local option law, student of taxation and road-making, opponent of minority rule, friend of the people. Frank W. Agan will make a good and success ful governor just as he has made a good and suc cessful business man and citizen. HIS CAMPAIGN Frank W. Agan's campaign is all in the open. He has 110 paid fixers, no political grafters, no underground work ers. He is taking his issues directly to the people. Since he began his speaking campaign, he has made thousands of votes by his plain, straightforward state ments of what he stands for. In brief, he stands for Return of the people's right to self government, voted away by 155 men ; Better highways by changing the system of building and maintenance; Benefit of rural districts by restoring district schools and improving back roads ; Business methods in state affairs, fewer commissions, more teachers, better school; More money for roads by equalizing tax on automo biles; more money for schools by shortening state pay roll; , 1 No more big-money political campaigns. This is a simple program. Does it seem worth try ing? Is it good business ? If so, he would like your vote. HIS OPPONENTS Three candidates entered the field before Frank W. Agan all good men. One is an out-and-out prohibition ist, one si nds on an industrial platform and one is ouj; to get votes. If any one of them had stood for the peo ple's local option law their right to run their own busi ness and conduct their own government Frank W. Agan would never have entered the contest. In alphabet order, Mr. Agan's opponents stand as follows: Mr. Babbitt stands for local option in wet towns and for prohibition in!dry towns. He has wet workers work ing for him in Burlington and dry workers .working for him in Bellows Falls. He is trying to straddle the issue and get away with it. Mr. Emery stands for town prohibition, state prohibi tion and national prohibition. He is drier than" a covered bridge. He harks back to old prohibition days when rum was sold in every town of the state and the violation of law was a public scandal. Do you want any more of that sort of thing? Mr. Hartness is advocating "industrial Vermont." It's a very good plan if we don't need help on the farms. He helped Springfield to become an industrial center. He can help other towns whether he is governor or not. It isn't necessary to elect. Mr. Hartness to try Mr. Hartness plan. If it's a good plan, he'll work it out and towns that want it can have it. HIS PROPOSITION TO THE VOTER It's a fair and square choice up to you, Mr. Voter no pressure, no promises, no peanut politics, no preju dice or passion, just plain old-fashioned horse sense be tween men who don't need political bosses to tell them how to vote. If you can trust a man who changes politics every little while, vote for Mr. Babbitt. If you're satisfied with present conditions, if you be lieve Vermont ought to be governed by Oklahoma or Ala bama, vote for Mr. Emery. If you think Vermont needs an industrial genius for governor; if you believe in depopulating our rural dis tricts, vote for Mr. Hartness. If you believe that some one has voted aay your rights; if you want better roads and schiols; if you want less people on the state pay-roll; if you want to serve notice on organized minorities, vote for Frank "V. Agan. He will voice your protest and make you a good governor. ""HE AGAN CLUB OF LUDLOW Allen D. Ball, Secretary
