" New York and the other large cit ies are now rnpaged in passing the buck, the buck, being the full-sized criminal. Those early morning workers (should take courage from the fact that the daylight in growing longer-that is, the dark will not he so dense in the morning. In making an appeal to the allies to reduce their demands for 800,000 milch cows from Germany, the "women of Germany" say they have full sym pathy with the people of the devas tated regions of France. The time to have shown that sympathy for the French people was back in 101418. Did the German women feel that sym pathy then? If they did, there was little evidence. of it in the treatment which the German nation gave to those same sufferers in France. The increased usefulness of the Barre City hospital, as revealed by the reports submitted at the annual meet ing of the corporation, cannot fail to be a source of satisfaction to all who are in any way interested in the in stitution, which means the -public in general. It is the purpose of an insti tution of such nature to give the max imum service with the least expense to the patrons; few, if any, public ho;.pitals are conducted with the idea of profit on the investment. So the aim of the City hospital is to do the most it can with the resources avail iible. That it has been doing mors and more is clearly indicated by the Mat is- ; lies presented by the superintendent of j the institution.

The examination and general supervision of National banks has become more thorough from year to year and the responsibility of offi cers and directors as to management and investment of funds is directly imposed and cannot be evaded. Among those who are familiar with the requirements of the Comp troller's office, the word "National" has assumed the distinction of be ing the hall-mark of good banking. " It is therefore little wonder that people look with favor upon the national banks as a bulwark of strength and financial rectitude. If you wish any further information as to the supervision of Na tional banks ask the "man behind-the counter or the man around the table." , The Peoples National Bank . 4 Per Cent The Only National Bank in Barre 4 Per Cent It might be interesting to the world to know what nation is financing Greece now that Constantine has re turned to Athens and Great Britain and France are reported, in const!-j quetice, to have withdrawn their finan cial support. The possibility of a mon archal trust in Europe is interesting in view of the fact that there is yet S underground warfare between mon uny and a republican form of gov eriin.vit. The. republican form of gov ernment mad rapid strides during the war; but .ime the close of the war there have b. "n persistent rumors of the efforts being made by monarchy to recoup some of th losses it sustained when the people gr.isped the control of government. Cons'antine's return to Athens may he taken as an inci dent in the development of that war fare between the two forms of gov ernment, with monarchy seemingly gaining a point in the act. The iitji ation is such as to warrant a some what close watch of the German royal family in Holland to determine wheth er there is any effort toward a re sumption of monarchy in modified form in Berlin. 1 it Give him a Hickok Initial Belt for Christ mas $1.50 and $2.00. F. H. Rogers & Company XEW YORK CITY AND ITS WIXTKR TROBLKM. New York City is up against it u-ual winter problem, accentuated by prevailing conditions throughout he country, as to how best to cope with its criminal class. With the approach of ld weather and wintry conditions which prevent much of their activity in the more open country, the crimi nals, as well as the idlers, flock to ward the larger centers of population; and Xew York gets a larger propor tion of this element than any otllr. Then, too, there may 1 some honest seekers after work when they go to New York who, when driven by des peration, resort to crime to keep them selves alive. At the ssme time Xew York's permanent criminal class is greatly augmented by the lack of la bor and by a feeling of unrest, mt-n and women turning to robbery and other crime. These two great forces of evil, those driven cityward by win-1 ter's oncoming and those already rei-1 dents of the great city, make a situa- tion which is, admittedly, very hard i to meet. Opportunities for crime are j at almost every corner and the weak and the vicious accept those oppor- j t unities with eagerness. A store rob-1 lierr here, a hold up there, a murd.-r J in another pla-e and so on down j through the criminal list. The papera j are filled with accounts of crime. It is comparatively email proportion off Ihe criminal who are found out and! punished. Already Xew York I.as a j murder lit in tbe last few weeks thitj would fill many pats of criminal cal endar; and the reports of robber r j and similar crimes would atretrh out -lmit into a continued etorr. The j police and detective forces are worV'ne tertiroe. jet they are unsMe to put down crime or ferret out all the pr petratota of pat crimes.
