You mnv not be able to fill An- .Irrw Carnegie's shoe but you can oc cupy Carnegie's houses if you have It he price. The Bates college debater who re- Icently scored a triumph over Yale are entitled to full measure of credit for putting Bates in debates. Austria is admitted aa a member of I the league of nations, but Germany is still knocking. By the way, knock- ling is becoming chronic with Germany. Although there have been but few cases', smallpox is breaking out in I various Vermont communities with disquieting 'persistency. Failure to iso- Ilate the patients quickly enough ac counts for the outcropping. 'When in Idoubt, keep away from others. i The Barre Times last week had a half tone of a church in that city. A caption under it read, "Do you recog nijie (his building? Then help us to till it." Very clever, we say. North -field Xews. Kvidcntly Bro. Tarsons of the con temporary did'not recognize the build ing, for he has fallen into the error of believing the church in question ia located in Barre. Lest he make an other error, we will say that the church is not located in Northfield either. The summing up of the summer tourist business in Vermont during the recent season has indicated to thi tate publicity agent, Walter II. CNickctt, that Vermont is making con siderable progress in the business and has 'every prospect of increasing the number of visitors during 1921. Bet ter still, many of the tourists are be coming permanent holders of real es tate and all the year residents of the. state. The summer tourist business is as yet in its initial stages. It offers splendid opportunities for Vermont. Let's see, wasn't it a prediction of a wise one in Boston newspa'perdom that President Wilson would be out of of fice in November, 1D20, and that Vice President Thomas Marshall would be in the executive chair that same month? The tip must have led the wise one astray. Here it is mid-De cember, with Wilson still in the White House and Marshall holding down his own job. It's another specu lation about Wilson that has gone wrong. The point is right here It's not what you pay it's what you get. You can pay $70 for a suit or overcoat and get stung. . You can pay $29 and get disappointed. Come to F. H. Rogers & Co. and whatever you pay for you'll get your money's worth.

If Cork had been a thriving, hum ming city it would not have felt the 1om of $15,000,000 by fire so much as it will feel it. Cork did not have the impetus 'of industrial life as much as Belfast far to the north or Dublin only l.TO miles away. Cork gave the impression as of one sitting down and v, aiting for something to happen, which something in this case was a terrible catatnphe. It will be ex tremely hard for Cork to recover from the tremendous blow. Iti'prcspntative Dale of Vermont has 1rgtin an effort to insure two repre riital iies in the national House of Kepri'srntHt h e The effort is in the nature of a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the federal constitu tion providing, that each state shall have at least two representatives. It was stated during the campaign prior to the primary in Vermont that Mr. Dale'a experience in Congress would make him better fitted to fight for a representation of two men in the Hon?e from Vermont. Now that he 1ms made a move by the introduction of the resolution as above mentioned the outcome of the effort will be Aatihed with great interest in Ver mont. ... x v F. H. Rogers & Company because they believe he is a go-getter; that is, that he is a live, resourceful individual who will bring a great deal of energy to the enforcement of the mandates of the government respect ing the traffic which passes through the Vermont collections di strict. More over, they have a good measure of confidence in Mr. Whitehill's integrity, so much, in fact, aa to warrant the be lief on their part that he will fill the requirements of the position very well indeed. Then too, it is recognized that Mr. Whitehill has been an ?an est worker on behalf of a bigger a:id better Vermont and he has given much of his effort toward the upbuilding of the state; and loyalty of this sort stamps a man as worthy of official rec ognition. As a consistent Republican worker he has also been noteworthy; and if that counts for anything in the selection of a collector Mr. Whitehill surely should have strong support on that ground. Taken altogether, there are many reasons why Mr. White hill should receive the appointment, and few, if any, why he should not be thus honored. Conclusive evidence if profiteering ; in foodstuff is furnished by the Mis- i ihusetts commission on "no " ri 'f life in its report for N'ovemlier, the report stating that only a small part of the three per cent reduction made by producers of food had reached the public and that such reduction as had !een made by the retailers was grudg- irtgly made and only on insistence by ' the buying public. It is evident that! the n-.rwhat common practW of pa- ' !nj the bnrk baik to die producer can- I not r.jrate in this case without bare faced lying. The producers of f.Kl hae rrduced their prices three jut ivni to the retailers; but the retailers hate as jet reduced their prices to the puMir only a small fart of th re- d'Hf i..n they are enjoying at the tnnl of the prod-ieer.

Few words are more frequently mis used than "mad" and "angry." It must be confessed, however, that there is gome excuse for the misuse of the words, since many psychologists hold that it iev&iflicult to tell when the emo tions of a person are aroused, junt where anger ends and madness begins. But in grammar there is a sharp dis tinction between "angry" and "mad.". The former mean to be vexed or out f ....;.. while the latter indicates madness, insanity. A person who ia insane is mad, but a person whose mail is delayed is not mad, but merely an- gry. , There is a figurative use of the word "mad" that is, a use in which , words are not to be taken literally--1 such as "mad with pain," "mad with terror," etc. "I am mad at that fellow," say a; man. "he cheated me in a stock deal." . '""" i. aLi He should say, "t am angry i umi fellow, etc." Philadelphia Inquirer. EAST BROOKFIELD . o : c,l of 9. o'elnelf n. m.
