It may be well for the French to keep an army at the door of Kuhr for a time at least. Here's hoping that the state of Ver mont does not pi that printing shop it has recently bought. When the city fwhermen hear of that four-pound, five-ounce trout hauled out of a little stream in Warren, they make all haste to Warren. There's fine fish ing in Vermont this year. It was twenty-three years ago to-day that the old Co. E left Barre for serv ice in the war against Spain. The in tervening time is fast increasing to a generation. ' In buying horses for delivery to the allies in payment of reparations claims, Germany has found that Americans de liver the goods up to specifications. Perhaps there is a lesson for Germany in that transaction. Kear Admiral Sims is to receive an honorary degree from Cambridge uni versity. Let not the presentation be the signal for a charge that Sims is letting the British pull the wool over his eyes. Sims is apt to go into a thing with his eyes open. , The cables ara doing their best to kill off the two leaders of the Rus sian soviet; now they have it that Trotzky is very ill with a cancer. If they had said that Russia was very ill with a cancer they might, perhaps, have hit nearer the truth. A Bradford store talks wth consid erable assurance when it. advertises its goods as "permanently reduced" but it hastens to add "until further changes in the market." He is a bold, cour ageous man who declares anything to be permanently fixed these days of rapid mutations. The United States government turned toward the logical man in se lecting the chief of staff for the army. None is so well fitted by stern experi ence as General John J. Tershing to di rect the activities of the army at this time; and the country will commend the selection. Applicants for automobile registra tion may consider the secretary of state department a trifle slow in re turning the permits; but various op erators have found that the depart ment was not at all backward in can celling or suspending permits to op erate. The number of revoked or sus pended licenses is going up rapidly. With its initial step toward laying granite block pavement, Montpelier will put itself in the class of municipalities which are making really permanent streets or as permanent as H is possi ble to make them. Moreover, Mont pelier will find that the upkeep of a granite block pavement is negligible, barring, of course, the cleaning of the urface. Having been the first, we believe, to raise the funds necessary to secure a site for the proposed shelter home of th state charity department and hav ing a naturally good location as to geographical lines in the state, Mont pelier ought to get the institution. An other reason why the home should be located in Montpelier is because of its close connection with the state de partment of charities and probation, which Las its headquarters in Mont pelier. The best work of the depart ment can best be tecured by placing the department and the shelter home in Mich close proximity that they can function together with the least possi ble delay or handicap. Ke.-ent events in both Barre and Montpelier indicate that the Tenney to. should begin at oif e a systematic insrwetion of the poles of it aervice in the two citiea lent serious results attend the fall of the jioles. In Barre recently a pole fell of its own weight and the weight cf a transformer; and the lae of the pole was found to be completely rotted through. In Mont pelier, runaway pair of barses knocked down two poles and loth polfs were found to be in a bad condition at their lae. Such lieing the condi tion of ihe-e three poles it is ea-ily poUle that many other of the same tympany are in had condition and like ly to fall of their own w right or if sub jorted to j.imf pressure.

CALLAHAN law expressly states that all persons' over 13 years of age are required to take out licenses wheu they desire to fish or hunt, and it applies, of course, to women and girls as well as to men and boys; yet the state department of fish and game is said to have informa tion that the requirement is not being lived up to ifi all instances. If, after due warning, members of the female sex fail to provide themselves with licenses thre will be only one course to pursue; that will be to bring prose cution. There should not be discrimi nation in the matter of enforcement of the regulations.. THE ALLIES' DUTY IX THE TOLAXn SITUATION.

K Wasting Words , Wasting words is a good deal like wasting money. How easy it is to substitute argument for logic, to fritter away words just for the sake of so-cailed sociability. Money often goes the way of the easy word, thoughtlessly and flippantly spent as the thoughtless word is spoken Everybody realizes that it is a duty to save something for the day of need but it too frequently occurs that the good resolution is merely lipservice or wasted words. It's action that counts not only say, "I'll save!" but "Do it!"

Under no conditions could the allies see their way clear to give military surtDort to Germany in any outbreak with Poland; but it is possible that j the good offices of the allies might be used along the channels of intervention to prevent bloodshed, and thereby firm ly to impress upon Poland the neces sity of living up to obligations with the allies. Poland has proven to be somewhat intractable when it came to the point of conducting herself in ac- An Understandable Mistake.
