Vermont savings bank deposits have
been "coming back" during the last six
months, the total money now placed in
the Mvings deposits of the state banks
being $114 000.411', with many millions

Vermont lost SS8l,301 in fires which

able and another large amount which,
presumably, was lost by preventable
causes, we como to the conclusion that

criminally. for instance, it" we had

we threw our matches or discarded

not been so lacking in caution regard
ing the use of gasoline and other pe
troleum products. Yes, it is a sinful
waste; and we are almor-t criminally
negligent and careless in the matter of

course, there is jet plenty of time in
which winter can attempt to get back
to normalcy. The days of rcbruary
ami March have been wont to hold
their icv messages for us and to bring
their deep mantles of snow. So it is
too early to declare that the winter
of 1920-21 has been an "open winter"
throughout, although it can be said in
all truth that thus far the weather
has ben almost of the delightful sort

LETTERS TOTHE EDITOR
The Teacher of the Ages
Life is progressive and to live is to experience continued develop
ment mentally, physically and spiritually.
If life is progressive, it follows that we learn from experience, but do
we? We may answer "yes" occasionally.
Experience teaches that physical over-indulgence will cause pain but
the gluUon still stuffs himself and the drunkard imbibes everything from
hair oil to wood alcohol. v. .
Experience teaches that there is no royal road to wea th, but unsus
pectinj tamS ffaXl on the stock market with the simple credulity of
"Little Red Riding Hood."
Vvnprience teaches that for every fortune won on a quick turn, tnere
are a SXd Most ! but this means nothing to those who are infected with
the delightful mania of amassing great riches without effort Fortunately
hese specula ttoi are nearly always fatal. Fortunately for the simple rea
son that experience may yet teach her lesson before it is too late.
Experience teaches that those who save shall have, and they shall ac
auire no only wealth but a firm foundation for future accumulations.
4 The man who saves his money has learned the great lesson from Ex
perienSe Teller of the Ages.w He has established his identity
through his own wisdom. '
Begin to-day if you have not already opened an account and see how
easy it is to save money.

Favors Re-Election of Mayor Langley,
Kditor, Times: Thursday evening the
f it Ivan r,t Rorr w ill meet to elect ft
of mayor, city clerk, an assessor and do
any other proper ousiness. in many
wa'vs it promises to be a memorable
W art already assured of
kppn ran test for citv clerk and treasur
er and we have an avowed candidate
for mavor in the person of Alderman
Keefe. which is a srood siirn that the of
fice of mayor is not lacking of men who
aspire to one of the highest oftices to
which the citizens can elect a man or
In thia respect. I wish to say a word
or two in behalf of the present incum
bent. Mayor langley. It has been said
he does not desire another term of of
ficii. That he has given much valuable
time to the conduct jf city affairs is
common knowledge to those who have
and do take notice of things tnai mane
for the general betterment of our city.
Mayor langley has done one man's
work 'and done that faithfully and well,
and lie ha been a team-builder in eon
junction with our board of aldermen
where during the past year all parties
have set a precedent that may well be
followed in the days to come. This is a
poor tima to change mstyors. especially
when we have a public-spirited citizen
like Mayor Langley at the helm. He
has given of his tune and service to the
city without any , pecuniary reward
whatsoever, turning his salary over to
the Barre Citv hospital. When we have
a citizen of tint high type, it seema to
me we should hang onto him.
It has been stated that he would not
be an eowed candidate. That may be
true, but I feel that if the citizens ex
press anything like a desire to retain
til valuable services lor anomrr lenn
at the caucus. Mayor Langley will heed
fhs rsll to sen ice.
So all up Thursday evening for the
re-election of our able mayor ana snow
him that the vitwt-na of llarre appreci

Combining the glories of painting, fit to hang in
any art gallery of drama more thrilling than any
ever seen within the four walls of a theatre of
the greatest novels, narratives and brilliant trans
lationsof all life and all humanity.
SUCH REALISM: Awe-inspiring, titanic, over
whelming, to quote the New York Herald: "The
most sensational climax that ever aroused a cata
ract of emotions." And the New York Globe:
'Most amazing spectacle ever seen on sea or land."
SUCH BEAUTY: "A series of pictures that
might well hang on any wall," said the New York
Evening Mail. And, quoting the New York Eve
ning Post, "Wondrously1 Beautiful."
THE EIGHTH ART: "Mr. Griffith has made
the motion pictures the eighth Fine Art. He has
furthered the art of the silversheet toward that of
Michael Angelo, Debussy, Velasquez, Maeterlinck
and John Keats." C. Blythe Sherwood.
