Incorporated "77t? Store Where Quality Counts" 1! II V turner's The Corsets that Women Like We know this because we sell so many of them and sell them over and over again to the same customers. It is probably because Warner's is such an "all round" corset. It is fashionable in its lines, giving any type of figure those firm trim contours that are just right under tailored clothes; it is the soul of comfort, women tell us and we think that is because it is so well made and the boning is so skillfully placed. It is certainly the most economical corset you can buy, because it is guaranteed not to rust, break or tear.

"IMPOSSIBLE BUSINESS SYSTEM" Another person's life was extended for another month, at least, by a donation of $10 to the Hoover fund, solicited by students of Spaulding high school and, therefore, the students should be credited with the saving of 00 European lives instead of 5t. as shown in this paper previously. Prin cipal Hunt believed yesterday that he had the final figures for the total amount collected by the student body during the two-day drive, but was in formed yesterday that a F10 check, which had been solicited by a high school student, went directlv to Mrs. ('eorge N. Tilden; vet should have been credited to the school. The amount to date collected by the stu dents was, therefore, $tH)1.45, quite probably the total The fire department' was railed to the large house at the corner of Mount and Academy streets last evening, shortly after 0 o'clock, for a raging chimney fire in the home of Captain A. J. KunJ! of the Barre Salvation Army. The department found it nec essary to empty the contents of two hand chemicals to squelch the flames and doubtless would have had a more serious fire to contend with if the roof of this large four-tenement house had lwen covered with anything ele but slate. Large sparks were distributed upon the roof by the fire, and many of them rolled off the roof to J he snow- before being extinguished. No dam aie was suffered from the fire. Th house is owned bv A.

Cart-r, mannger of the Barre thou t res of the Black circuit has experienced an unending chain of dilhculties during the past week, when making arrangements with musician for an orchestra. Mr. Carter s most crucial moment of this week, thus far happened Tuesday evening about 7:45 o clock, when a pianist, w hom he hap encaged for the evening, phoned him savini; his presence at the theatre would be impossible. Mr. Carter had already ransacked the town for pian ists and now at the very last moment received this unpleasant bit of news. In his frantic ellorts to satisty hi patrons he dashed from the Barre opera house to Hotel Barre, his last resort. to secure an able musician, a pianist From the hotel clerk he learned that a certain voting man there ws fa miliar with a piano, and it was soon after that Mr. Carter's situation was made knoivn to Fred T. Davis, a rep resentative of the Hamilton Institute of Learning, who happened to be stop ping at the hotel that evening. Mr, Davis consented to accommodate the theatre manager, and at the scheduled hour was at hand to lead the orches tra. His ability as a pianist was un questioned bv inr of the audieneo. and the evening 1iow passed as all do. the pianist being acclaimed hv many of the sndienoe as a capable player, yet none know the eircnmsl anoe un which be had been procured. Mr. Carter finds that most of the Barre musicians are huy lmot every ev ninT playing at dances and one of his principal' tasks is the orirani.ation of an orchestra at various times for spe cial pictures.

A fall atT"Jv is rqut --d. In-tallatioa ut 'Ker. I'rr -r-!'f X. G. President-elect Harding fo secretary of the treasury. Mr. Dawes, who has been comptrol ler of the currency and who was in charge of the purchase of supplies in trance for the American expeditionary forces, spoke of the conditions that have controlled departmental expendi tures in the federal government as an impossible business system. In carry ing out an analogy between cabinet otlicers and the administrative vice- presidents of a corporation, bo said the president! of the United States almost without exception had allowed their administrative vice-presidents to run their particular depart menta and to make estimates of the amount of which should ibe appropriated to them entirely without presidential super vision in the interest of the govern ment as a whole. Rt-ferring directly to Mr. Harding, General Dawes continued: "With the power of selection, ho also has tho power of removal and I do not think h will temporize for a minute with the old system so far as his power over his administrative vice-presidents so to speak can alter it. If the cabinet heads are not willing to do teamwork and to co-ordinate and to carry out his plan for business super vision and economy, made simply in the interests of the people of tho Unit ed States as a whole, he should remote them and I hope he will. "Under the law of March 4, lfXifl, as has been frequently pointed out by members of Congress in recent times, the authority to unify the business of the government and put it into proper system, exists in him. His very posi tion as head of the executive branch of the government implies not only the power but the duty to t'o this. Union he is willing to assume this great task, a budget law will not materially cor rect the situation. The budget law will help the president to do his duty and it should be passed. But even without a budget law, with the control he has over the cabinet, he can inaugurate this system. In my judgment it is riot neces sary, and it would not lie best for the country if, in connection --with the making of a budget law, Congres should surrender any of its present power to the executive. Congress is made responsible by the constitution for appropriations. In carrying out this responsibility, I say without hesi tation that if it had not done its duty and protected tho people against the enormous anil excessive appropriations kod by the presentation durinir the last two years, the credit of the United States would have bei-n gravely in jured and irreparable damage done to the people of the country. , i he propnsod reform is particiilnrlv an administrative as di t iniailie,l . from a congressional reform. What Cnnuress prcrly detnnmls when it I appropriate money, is that there i houId be a proper business onranim- tion to exiend it economically, and ' what former presidpnta have failed to do is to so organize their business ma chine as to make this possible.
