But it must Vic admitted that some of the spokesmen for the rail roads of New Kngland are themselves responsible for the development of much of the talk about possible ro ceiveohip of tliiii rual or that roiul. If there hail not been so much loose talk about the condition of the railroads (here would not be so many rumors to day about rcceh ership, "unauthorized talk," as President Pearson savs. The rate at which United states sub marine are running up on shore indi cate that thev re misnomers. i:rt v colli snap in Into March means a fre,-h Mow of nip.

Kvacuation day and St. Patrick' dav sepin to lime ln-come considerably mixed up in Boston; but thpy both have to do witti driving out tbe Brit ish, in one way or another. The N'ew York judge who made stric tures on the mental stability of blondes moved to amend after jroing home and talking with his wife blonde ber.-elf. In other words, he saw the light. After eliminating the near-ogths and slsnj? from Charles G. Dawes' testi mony, the transcript of his testimony before the -House war investigating rommittee loses much of its verve but perhaps gains something in actual force. N'ew Hampshire is doing the wise thing in ordering heavy motor trucks off the country roads until the roads have settled after their winter's up heaval and soaking. The saving of the highways demands auch protection. It seems like tempting fata to start another daily newspaper in Boston un der the present conditions of the pub lishing business; yet the Boston Tele jrram has been started with consider able show of assurance. It probably will be a hard, uphill fight for a long time, providing the publisher is able to hold on for a long time. Here in the esst, and perhaps in some other sections of the country, it would be considered an impropriety for the presiding judge in a murder trial and one of the leading lawyers for the defense to be brothers; yet the Hamon trial seems to have gone along as if Judge Champion and Attorney Cham pion were in no wise related. Tint Okla homa people sometimes do things a lit tle differently. ' Some idea of the aire of the dairy industry in Vermont is given by the statement that one creamery, that lo cated in Milton, did $80(1,000 worth of business during the past year. This particular creamery also furnishes quit an employment list, having as many as twenty-five persona employed in iti plant. The creamery business in Vermont has not yet been devl oped to the extent of its possibilities. The use of marhine guns to stop rum smuggler droppirlg down frnmC'auada into North Dakota is probablyTntend ed more aa a threat than a a prob ability. The situation surely has not reached the point that we need to go to war to stop liquor smuggling. Rea sonably sharp watch by men who are equipped with automatic pistols for IMC In case of dire necessity seems to fee what ia required; not the actual use of machine guns. The self constituted guardian of the Vermont legislature, M. J. napgood of Pern, who is never happy when he is away from the legislative halls, put in advertisement in the Montpelier Ar pit, saying: "To the legislators: Boys, be careful. Statute book full of mush tlready. Don't put any more there. iVhen in doubt, rote no." The nneon iciou humorist will add to the mrrrl aient of tbe some hat tedious stay in the state' capital "B. L. T." A GENIUS IX HIS LINK. Thousands of newspaper readers in recent years have been refreshed and made more cheerful by perusal of that column of wit, satire and philosophy labeled "A Line O' Type Or Two," pub lished in the Chicago Tribune and syn dicated to seerul other papers in va foiiH parts of the country. In fact, so attractive has this contribution been that many readers of the press turn first to that column before perusing any other part of the newspaper. The maker of the column was u genius and his work was a dolijfht. It takes a pe culiar mental quirk ami a remarkable power of condensation to be successful in the "colyuining" business; and Tay lor was possessed of both. Ho could pound into a few words a mine of wit, ,-atire or philosophy, simply by writing an appropriate heading for a clipping from another paper or by adding com' ment on something printed in another paper. So the column signed "B. L. T." became famous the country over and Bert Leston Taylor rose to unusual height of distinction in that particular field of newspaper writing. . To Vermont people, and particular ly to Barre people, it is interesting to recall that Bert Taylor gained much of his early experience in newspaper work by editing a little journal in Barre which he called "The News." That was back in the early '90s short ly before Taylor went west in search of a larger field. Taylor's newspaper ven ture in Barre was not a financial suc cess although he turned out a read able paper. But finding there was no use in sending one good dollar after another, Taylor wrote his valedictory, put it in type, mailed the edition and waa moving to another field before the subscribers got their paper. That wa his way of springing a joke. The vale dictory to Barre was recently referred to by the "columist" in his "Line O' Type." Barre' recollection of Tay lor was pleaureable. $$$$$$$$$$$$: $ liiimBmsglrat j I CURRENT COMMENT j ! . Husband' Appointment on Merit.

Mr. Husband 1 an ex-newspaper man of Vermont, who has followed in the footsteps of softie other dUt in (pushed men in Washineton, being first secretary to Senator Dillingham and clerk of' the committee on immijrrstion. In the latter capacity he went to Ku rope with the commission of Congress which was delegated to investigate im migration conditions t the source, and, second to Senator Dillingham himself, has perhaps the best first-hand infor mation about immigration of anyone in Washington. In addition, the new enmmissioner general has devoted practically sll bi time of late years to an intensive study of the same subject and conditions, so that probably he' has in meticulous de tail the exa'ct facts about the prob lem, brought strictly and absolutely up to preent-day conditions.

The care and courtesy given to my sister, Mrs. Flora M.

I cannot too warmly recommend the devotion and personal attention which were given htr. It is impossible to express my sense of obligation. Clara A.
