A..m.itu1 Prm in .tHiikIv.Iv entitled to the use for republication of all newa die patch credited to it or not otherm-iae cred ited In thia paper, and also the local nevra published therein. Just for encouragement winter is on the second half, we'll say. If precedent set by the other Ver mont college amounted to anything, Middlebury will turn to the State House for her next president. It is juRt four weeks to election in Vermont, and in not a few of the cit ies and towns there is strange apathy. Perhaps the politicians are centering their attention on the legislature. 'The nation's record of suicides -6.171 during the past year is a mute bit of testimony to the unsatisfactory business conditions that obtained that year. Given plenty of work, there is a less tendency to committee suicide. When Maine loses her governor he goes to Uie president of the Senate. AVhcn Vermont loses hers she goes to the lieurnant -governor, who also is the presiding ollieer of the Senate. So there isn't so much dilt'erencc in the procedure as one might expect at first thought. Peaceful and gentle Brooklield is tilling a strange role indeed with a homicide in its environs. Brooklield is one of the towns of Vermont which re tain much of Ihe flavor of thn Vermont of old and is a delightful little town. That is why the slaying of a man, even a newcomer ut the hands of a newcomer, seems so out of place. Victor L. Itergcr flatters himself that his acts were justified by the United States supreme court when the truth is that the supreme court reversed the lower court's decision on a technicality rather than on the merits of the case, after hi eligibility was attacked. That decision by (he supreme court does not in the least justify Berger or his ecti. Acceptance of the home of J. Pier- point, Morgan in London to be used a a home for the American ambassador to Great Britain does not, necessarily, carry any obligations on the part of the United States government toward J. rierpont Morgan. Nor will it carry any obligations. Those who voted against the acceptance of the offer when the matter came up in the House probably could not dissociate the offer from the possibility of obligations be ing fastened on the United States. Postmaster General Burleson admits that the United States postal service is "not 100 per cent perfect." There are many who would mark the service below the passing mark, which is con siderably below 100. His admission comes rather late in the administration and opens the way to criticism of his successor if there is not any improve ment. The prospects are that the next postmahter general can take advantage of the mistakes which hate resulted in. the "not 100 per cent perfect'' score. Another instance of imposition on iharily departments is furnished by the cae of the SO-ycar-old woman of Newark, X. who had been receiving luppnrt from the city for fifteen year until she was found to posspss six thousand dollar in money and bank deposits. The woman had been pent lo the city alii'liou-e by charity work ers and wa- refused admittance when the discovery of her wealth was made. Vo doubt the income on her property, ell invested, would hip nearly stip orted the woman in Ihe manner she required, while the prim ipa! ',uM not have been touch d. Konietitiiea there it much need of business advice at of alms giving among thoae wha apply to municipal charity department and charity societies for nupport. In thia particular instance it was an imposi tion whether intentional or not. Each case ia peculiar to itelf and needs 'areful examination lest a great in justice he done by giving aid to those who do not need it thus depriving oth er deserving peraont of assistance or in mult ting the whole people who eventually pay the hilU. 'Maple ujrr time is here," boldly assert a news story from a povern ent source in Washington. Which assertion i calculated to make Ver mont sciff at the theoretical fellow down ! Washington. However, a fur her reaj;n; f the article sbnw that he statement i qualified to the extent "f saying that th Msn c-f maple sug ar waking is rea.ly to open "d irirg the .rrvr Tr.i!!!e of February, in the -c-utheia ecii..a and later ia the nirth- m regions."

The result is your splendid opportunity for a live bargain. PRICES All Boys' Suits priced i4 off, and Mackinaws now are just the former price. You can buv now and feel safe the price is as low as it will go. F. H. Rogers & Company time for the groundhog: to make his annual inspection and for the house holder to take a look at his depleted coalbin and calculate on the possibili ties of carrying on during the. remain der of the winter. It may even serve to warn the Vermont farmers that they ought to be getting up their "sug arin' wood" if they have neglected to do so until this time. MAINE'S LOSS. Maine has sustained a considerable loss in the death of her governor, Frederic Hale Parkhurst. just as he was beginning his term of office. His work as a private citizen and as an office holder in small position had indicated that in him Maine had been unusually fortunate in the selection of her ex ecutive for the two years. Governor Parkhurst was a man thoroughly de voted to the interests of Maine, having lieen born in one of the small towns of the state and having been reared in tha city of Bangor, where his father had manufacturing interests; and he had spent practically all of his life in that state, the chief exception being while he wa away attending college. Xot only was he devoted to the state but Governor Parkhurst wa a firm be liever in Maine's possibilities. These considerations taken in conjunction with the known ability of the man gave promise that the Parkhurst ad ministration would be fruitful of much good to the state. Maine people will, therefore, regret the passing of one of her finest eons. SPORTING NOTES. University of California May Send Crew East.
