Few people realized that there was uch a position as treasurer of the "nited States until the person holding he office resigned and was replaced by 'resident Wilson. Vet one would nat irally suppose that the position of rrasurer of the United States ought o be a rather important office. Vice-President-elect Calvin C'oolidge is out of a job, so he is coming back to his native state of Vermont to get a little vacation before assuming his new duties in Washington, D. C. Cool idge almost always has found what he wanted in Vermont, and he just natur ally turns to the Green mountains when he wants recreation and rest. Incidentally, Vermontera will have the opportunity of seeing the next vice president and hearing him speak wlin he comes to Montpelier to address the Vermont Historical society on dan. 18. This ought to prove an occasion of considerable significance to Vermont people and particularly to the Vermont Historical society. Always carrying a liberal amount of cash and an exceptionally large proportion of quick assets as a secondary reserve, this bank, directed by active local business men, managed by an efficient organization and super vised by the United States government, offers your account the fullest pro tection. You will get not only protection, however, but a type of service that comprehends your needs and that aims at co-operation. This service is not disinterested nor impersonal but its application is en tirely impartial, the same principle of sound banking being applied in our conduct toward the kiddie with his bank of pennies as towards the corpora tion with its extensive financial interests. . The same courtesy, the same service, the same diligence and the same protection to each and all, has earned a reputation for this bank as a de pendable depository.

Therein Mont pelier high school is setting a good example for every high school in the state; a course in home nursing should be established in every one of them. The simple methods to b followed in the care of the sick in one's household ought to be taught to every girl and to as many boys as can be induced to participate in the instruction. Some dav those if iris and those bovs will be called upon to act in cases which require prompt attention and probably also in cases of minor sickness in the family. If they can be taught some of j the simple rules of home nursing whi n they are in their school attendance years, they will find themselves well- fortified against emergencies emergen cies in which many adults find them selves hopelessly ignorant and incom petent if they have not had the bene fits of special training or experience after their school days. Instruction in the simple rules of home nursing should prove invaluable and not at all educating beyond what is necessary to make the pupils good and intelligent citnens. by persons in the service of the Unit- erally extended to a commanding offl-1 cd States. The race for the first news cer, to whom initial report is sup-i on the part of the newspapers Is so i posed to be made. There was merely i keen that the newspapers sometimes the danger of commercializing the in-! SELLING NEWS OF ADVENTURE. The reason why Secretary of the Navy Daniels interposed his objection to the revealing of the letters, sent ahead by the three naval balloonists after their adventurous trip into the wilds of Canada, mav have been that e desired to put a check on the com- mercialir.ing of the information gained offer large sums of money for the ex clusive stories of adventures ; and in view of that fact there is, admittedly, some danger that army and navy men, perhaps other government employes, w'ill get into the habit of expecting great returns from newspapers ond will sell their stories to the highest bidders. Of course, that would prove detrimental and demoralizing to tha service, whether it be in the armv or the navy or in some civil position. Moreover, the practice might go so far as to work to the decided detriment of the United States government through the revelation of information, whih ought to be kept secret, at least from the prying eyes of other government. But in the case at hand there seems to have been no particular good rea son why the meagre facts regarding the adventures of the balloonists should have been suppressed until after report had been made to the navy de partment. There was a great deal of heart interest, human interest one might say, in the story of the liht with the wind, the narrow escape from disaster in the flight, the landing in an almost uninhahitated land, the wan dering about for days with nothing to subsist on except two carrier pigeons and moss,1 and the discovery of a lone and frightened Indian trader, who un der strong persuasion led them to a camp of traders. There were prob ably no military or naval secret in volved. So there was really no in fringing on the rights of courtesy gen- We are still overwhelmed with business.
