The new building is to be planned of such size that it will allow for the still further expansion of busi ness. Incidentally, it is hoped by the general public that granite may be used in the exterior construction in or der to match the State Houne and the new state building, which stand in close proximity to the site of the proposed new insurance buildTng. A structure of the same material would add great ly to the architectural beauty of the group of notable buildings. President Harding is an earnest di ciple of that intangible teacher, pub lic opinion. Newspapers die of malnutrition just the same as human beings, as witness the demise of the Northampton, Mass., Daily Herald after having lived vears. Published comment on Harding's message is pretty effectually divided according to political bias. To some it was an excellent message, to others I very unsatisfactory. I Trout finhermen in Vermont should ear in mind that the first essential for the expedition on April 13 is fish ing license or a temporary permit from ' It ity or town elerk. It's as necessary as hook and line now, under the law. Harding's first attempt at addressing the iSenate from his executive position was probably read by Woodrow Wil son with great eagerness. Wilsons comments could not have been entirely favorable to the document in all its particulars. EACH COMMUNITY'S DUTY. The explosion of a quantity of fire works stored in a building in a con gested part of the city of Chicago,, causing the death of eight persons and the injury of many more, illustrates that despite the supposedly marked ad vance made in conduct of municipal af fairs there are marked relapses now and then in supervision. Chicago has ordi nances and regulations prohibiting the storage of fireworks within certain areas, and they are reasonable ordi nances and regulations too. Yet here was an instance where the prohibition was flagrantly violated without inter ference until a catastrophe revealed that a violation had occurred. Un doubtedly there are scores, if not hun dreds of other cases of similar viola tion In that city, while in other com munities, even of the smaller class, there are proportionately us many as in Chicago. Our ordinances and regu lations may he all right, but they amount to nothing if not lived up to rigidly. In he cae of Chicago the fire works explosion might easily have re sulted in tremendous destruction of property through the spread of flames and it might have eventuated also in wholesale loss of life. It was in part a matsar of good fortune that Chicago Come and meet old Mr. Dollar. good You'll be glad to see he has regained his old time SIZE, WEIGHT and VALUE, and in fact he's stronger than ever Good suits, good Pat terns, good tailoring, good cloth, $35, and sr. good fit guaranteed. F. H. Rogers ,& Company SOUTH RANDOLPH NORTH RANDOLPH Lightning caused nearly one-third of jd'd not another great fire like the fires and occasioned one-seventh 'of the loss during 1920. Thus the natural elements are vying with the human ; element to make Vermont a great ash- , heap. It is left for the human element i to take a move in the other direction, 'toward reduction of the ash-heap. Perhaps the people of Rutland do I not appreciate their good fortune in I ld'ing able to buy coal (stove size) at f $14.50 a ton," which is nearly two dol lars a ton less than in other parts of Vermont and even half a dollar 'less , than the cost of the same size in Bos ; ton. If they do, they are not saying anything about it. the conflagration just ntty years ago, when property valued at $190,000 ,0(10 was wiped out, nearly 20,000 buildings consumed, 100,000 people made home less and 200 people killed. With the remembrance of that great calamity still held in the memory of many of its inhabitants it might have been ex pected that Chicago would be more careful of the causes which lead up to such disasters. The fireworks explo sion was but a gentle reminder of Chi cago's duty.' Also it was a reminder of the duty of every community.

The town of Strafford gets an in crease (if population by thirteen per sons at one time, a family of that number having come to town from Massachusetts to engage in farming. That family goes far toward making up the numerical loss sustained through the departure of others to seek their fortunes in other states. Still there's room for many, many more families VLas great size as the Strafford new-7fmers. A New York moving picture eensor !hip bill, which bids fair to become a aw, proposes to eliminate any films hat are "obscene, indecent, immoral, ihuman, sacrilegious, or of such a Iiaracter that its exhibition would tend corrupt morals or incite to crime." hat scope of power seems to be in lusive enough to cover all purprwps for ihich the censorship is designed. Rigid y enforced, it would bring about a larked change in the tone of tome of e "movie" pictures, particularly ose foisted upon the public in the nailer communities. Mrs. I. T..
