Darre'a Btoneeultera ought to be get ting n good breuth of puro air in their hmga in the long vacation. Ono erf the proudest men at Montpel ier this work was John C. Coolidge of Plymouth, Vt. Ha has a reason. The property of the Worceste Mass., Evening Tost was saved by a "curtain of water." That curtain is a very handy piece of equipment to have around. Great Britain proposes to stop eml gration to the United States. Fortu nately, Burre got a good slice of the TTnited Kincdora and Ireland before these efforts were started. Winooski has voted in favor of ( city charter and will apply to the leg ielstture for the right to become a city. If Winooski can take on such a hustle as Newport showed following its incorporation as a city it may be a good move for that community. Newport has' been making consider able noise, and some progress, one u led to believe. The Vermont Historical society wants an endowment, or at least a legacy with which to acquire omc of the almost priceless Vermont books and other articles that are going into the hands of private collectors. It is a reasonable desire, and it is to be hoped that someone with a full purse mid a proper appreciation of the de sirability of collecting tliee. articles under the control of a semi-public or ganization will respond to the appeal. l'andolpli has a rapid-fire author in the person of Fred O. Copeland, who is said to average a story or article published in some magazine or jour nal every two weeks The young man also finds time to work in a bank, and thii latter vocation, or avocation, whichever it may 1k, U reflected in the titles of some of the stories or ar ticles from his pen, such as "Looking t!i6 ( rook in the Kye."

GET ONTO HIS CURVES PRE-WAR PRICES Does it cut any ice with you to buy a suit or overcoat at half last season's price? Here's the opportunity Suits, $23.50 to $50.00 Overcoats, $32.50 to $45 Mackinavvs for men, $7.00 to $12.50. Mackinaws for boys, $6.00 to $10.00. Special prices on Und erwear, Sweaters, Hos iery, etc. F. H. Rogers & Company The tin umstances surrounding the heroic effort of Arthur W. Rossier of Newport to save N. K. Mailhot from drowning in Luke Willoughby on Aug. SI. 1010, were so clear that the early impression that his art should be re warded by recognition by the Carnegie Hero J'und commission is borne out by the action of the commission in granting adequate aid to the family of the young man. It is just recogni tion on lie pjirt of the commission. KILL THE SEVENTH I'KOTOSAL OF AMENDMENT. If. as Mehin G. Morse, secretary of the commission to prepare proposed uiucmlnicnts to the Vermont constitu tion, declares, the chief reason for pro posal mnnlier 7, to change the state elect ions ba k to September from the uniform time in November, is to get the state of Vermont into the limelight as a "barometer'' of the nation, there should be short work in disposing of that proposed amendment. It would le a very evanescent glory indeed for Vermont to go to the expense of hold ing double elections in presidential years just for the sake of putting a few figure liefure the people of the country, rsprriully when those figures !i not amount to anything from a standpoint of prophecy, Vermont be ing a "sure enough" state for a party that has always been in the saddle ever aince the party was formed. W't are bidding for a cheap notoriety when we propoae to get before the public gart in this way. Better would it be to do something worth while in order to get - talked about, if there is any virtue in being talked about. It ia to b hoped, therefore, that the proposal number seven will be voted down stronijly when it come to the test. hall virtually elect a representative- at-large, that is, a candidate picked re gardless of geographical division. This means a marked change in the per- sonnel of the Vermont representation! in Congress, as one of the present in-1 unibents will have to go, possibly both, as the will of the voters may direct. It mav be, too, that there will be still further readjustment as Ver mont's junior senator, Carroll S. Page, completes his term of office in 1(23. The senior senator, William P. Dilling- J ham, has just been re-elected for the j nix-year term and, while advancing in ears, is still in good health and might ' be expected to finish the full term, and more. The next two years promise to' be full of political significance to Ver mont as they will bring forth some in teresting developments, providing, of course that the vote just taken in the national House remains unchanged. There is a natural regret that Vermont is to lone one of her two representa tives in the House, but even so one fun recognize that the constant 'in crease in the number of representatives is bound to make a very unwirldly body and that the lest interests of government might be conserved by keeping the number as at present, or even reducing it although allowing a representative to each and every state. New Hampshire is no longer content to be counted among the states rated as backward in support of public eln-! cation. The sixty-first report of its board of education for the last biennial : period records progress that is proof, of the state's creditable discontent on this score. An equalization plan has been put into effect under which mon ey raistd by a general tax is lumped and distributed in the interest of tlio poorer towns, making possible a thir-! ty-six-weck school year in every town' in the state and giving to 0,500 chil-j dren four more weeks or more of I schooling last year than the districts in ; wliinh fhfiv livfwl nvpr hff.rp nrovulrtil ' ..... . x r-- j Two years ago the state was without a certification or licensing require in cut , for its teachers. Teachers were scarce, so all were tentatively certilled for one year. Gradually the unfit were let g and those who could qualify were duly certified and retained. Others were af forded a chance to complete their train- j ing at the normal schools. Already the effects of the change are beginning to be felt. j State-wide supervision is another achievement of the last two years. Su perintendents of schools must now be experienced teachers and graduates of colleges giving the A. l!. decree. They receive a minimum salary of $2,000 anil this may be increased with the sistanee of the supervisory unions in which the towns are grouped. To day New Hampshire lias some sixty superintendents the average of wh-isa work is good. Many, assured of per manency, are entering heartily iiin helpfully into the community life of their respective towns. Apart from this, the New Hamp shire board reports an agreement bv which all the paroclrial school stale are given the same helc .r j .1. 1 ..

On her return, the forgot the pocketbook and lighted the burners of the gas stove in a hurry to prepare supper. As a result all that is left of nine $20 bills, one $10 bill, an insurance policy and sonic other papers is a ma of ashes. The loss amounted to considerable.
