That's the way for the citizens of Barre to turn out Sn caucus. There should proportionately be as i?ood a turn-out at the ward caucuses No-night. We trust that Gov. Hartncsi will not feel called upon to refer to the Iwilful many in the Vermont Senate. Plans for road construction in Ver- Imont are being held up as long as winter continues to give us such good highways. All Ui early predictions about the I personnel of the Harding cabinet indi cate that the middle-west will be in the saddle. The young nian southern Ver- Imont who set fire to a house to cover up the theft of a graphophone now has quite a record to go with the grapliophone , having been sentenced to fifteen years in prison. It will be dull music, however. The Whitman investigation of al leged vice in New York City adminis tration should be divorced from all consideration of politico, yet one can not forget that an investigation of somewhat similar nature was the moan of making one other man a na tional figure. Ford's announcement that he intends to start branch automobile factories I in many small communities in various parts of the country, as well as in for eign lands, recalls the visit of the famed automobile manufacturer to Vermont last summer, at which time it was intimated that Ford was look ing up water power sites for the pur pose of starting manufacturing plants. The towns which Ford visited during that visit will take on fresh courage as a result of the new declaration by the somewhat eccentric automobile manufacturer. Courses in the German language have been re-introduced in the high schools of Chicago for the first time since the outbreak of the war between the United States and Germany. The world learned its lesson about Ger many from 1914 to 1018, inclusive; there will be no need to know more about that Germany. However, there will be no harm in learning more about the German language providing the students elect to study it. IJut courses in the German language will not re gain their popularity fur a long time except in the middle-west. , It has been ten days since that ter rible catastrophe in Rochester iu which pine persons lost their lives through faulty housing when fire broke out in their miserable quarters. At the time of the fire many were the resolves made to see that a similar thing could pot occur in many places. Yet what has been done? It would be interest ing to know in how many Instances the terrible warning was taken suffi ciently to heart to cause action to be Instituted where conditions were well nigh Intolerable. The trouble i that we are inclined to weigh those warn ing! too lightly once the occurrences are softened by the passing of time. The comic papers of Germany must be finding plenty of material after that ipeech by Field Marshal Von Hinden burg in christening a cargo steamer. aid this man who was sending his thunder bolts into the allied armies for four years: "May this vessel prove to the world Germany' honest desire to live at peace with all nation as long as she honorably ran. and may it establish a link between them and ua which will bring humanity closer to other." A pretty little speech indeed for a man whose daily consumption of human beings reached into the thou und. and whoM sole purpose was to bring the world so cloe to Germany that it would be a strangle bold. k GOOD NAME BEIXG DRAGGED IX THE DIRT. Keenest by Secretary f War Baker lhat the newspapers u discrimination to the ue of the statement that rrim tiala haled into court were "former leniee men- will, we feel sure, meet tiih pmper consideration by the news taper men of the country. There is lo desire to cast r-rrsion on the great fcdy of men who served their country well or who stood ready to s ac tive eenioe in case thir service were eired; and there is iso J iu'.t that request repetition t.f the tUUucbt yiat criminals were former sen ice nun t tendency to harm the gnod tsstne 4 the great cf h:ch-in'n4d nn-n I bo partipte4 in the World war. Because a few of the million engaged in service go wrong is not a reason why the good name of the whole should be subjected to the eVil influ ence which cornea about through asso ciation of ideas in the minds of the public. So it is probable that the news papers and the news gathering agen cies will act with a great discimina tion wherever they use the expression "former service men" in conjunction with criminal matters. There is the ever-present possibility that criminal caught in the toils of the law will re sort to the expedient of claiming to have keen service men in the hope of receiving a degree of clemency from the courts and sympathy from the public; they feel sure that the story of a good war record will go far to ward getting them out of their diffi culties. So the unscrupulous may bo expected to make their claims of hav ing been "former service men" when, as a matter of fact, they never got nearer to khaki or the navy blue than to pass it on the street. A great deal of deception is being practiced by crim inals under the guide of this designa tion, which makes it exceedingly dif ficult in the swift movements neces sary to getting out a newspaper to verify the declaration. Therefore, it would be well to exercise great care, if not to eliminate the use of the term entirely when referring to criminals who make such a claim of serving their country. SMILES AND SIGHS Down in Bennington, to the papers say, in speaking of a recent church service, "There was a large attendance in spite of the rain and mud." That is one thing that won't detain Barre people for a while and hasn't since lust November. The lt-inch storm that fell November 21 settled that matter for the winter. Orwell' Generosity.

A considerable number of school chil dren took their first lesson in civics Inst night as they gazed on the proceed ings from the gallery. . The mantle of presiding officer fell on ' good shoulder when it landed on James Mackay. The duty of tellers as watchers at the ballot box has been more or less perfunctory; but teller Angus McDon ald adopted a vigorous course last night when he spotted a man going through the line a second time and attempt ing to deposit bis vote for mayor again. Mr. McDonald promptly chal lenged the voter withs "Hey there, you've voted once." The man, evidently of foreign extraction, wa much per plexed by the challenge and seemed at a loss to understand the meaning of the challenge; but he wheeled out of line when Mr. McDonald and other tellers insisted that he had no right to cast the ballot. The man' good in tentions were not doubted, but hjs in terpretation of the right of suffrage in a caucus was held to be wholly at fault. was acting as clerk of the caucus and when he came to look for the head gear the 1021 model was gone. In it place, or rather a the sole residue of a collection of lost hats which fea tured the big caucus, was a four-cylinder hat of about 1919 model which was entirely too small for Mr. Wish art. The latter hat was stamped with the initials "A. D. 8." and it await the owner at the city attorney's office in the city hall, while Mr. Wishart hopes to get back the "hat he hot," a Mr. Raymond would say. There were more lost hat in the caucus last night than ever before, due lurgcly to the fact that men left their head covering in the wire racks under the chairs when they got up to march in the vot ing line, with the result that the on coming rush of voter swept the hats j out of the racks and under the jeet or I the marchers. Men groped about for i their own hats, and the chairman' bench wa a sort of clearing-house for these article. City Representative William Wishart is mourning the loss of a 1921 model Darcy hat which he wore to the cau cus. He laid the hat down on a bench on the opera house stage while he At the close of the caucus, H. W. Scott, who was second man in the con test for the city clerk and treasurer nomination, stated that he would file nomination paper and run for those position in the election March 1. The ward caucuses to be held to night promise to bring out interesting events in three of the five wards af fected, as there are contests for the aldermanic nominations in those three waAls. Those wards are one, three and five. Big attendance ia anticipated. In the second and fourth wards school commissioners are to be nominated, and it is probable there will be no contests Bjjainst the present encum bents, if they desire the positions. BETHEL Mrs. K. W.
