' - The early fairs in Vermont are dol ing the raindrop:-. However, the Northfield fair is yet to come off. Instead of buying bond of private thrift concerns, the small savers woul 1 do better to invest their money in some savings bank or in United States government securities. There is a strange dearth of news regarding rum-running operations in Vermont's northern tier of counties. Terhaps the whistle of bullets has giv en the operations a quietus. The Vermonter who stood up and paid an income tax on an income be tween $300,000 and $400,000 has not been named but he certainly is a strange creature not that he paid the tax but because he had the capacity for paying. Representative Frank L. Greene i home from Wathington for the recs of Congress. Those thirty days will give the first district man a good op portunity to make a political survey of the state to determine the sentiment regarding a successor to Senator Page. France's welcome to the small body of American Legion members during the last few weeks was only exceeded in wanrlth by Jie eagerness with which France welcomed the first con tingent of American Expeditionary Forces back in 1917. Both welcome were exceedingly warm. While attending to various interna tional squabbles in Central America and elsewhere, the government at Washington will not, of course, over look what seems tojse civil war in the coaT mining regions of West Virginia. That section of the country has been a hotbed of trouble for a long time, so long that it should be ended now. With as many as one hundred auto mobile parties in Smugglers' Notch last Sunday, the popularity of that region is certainly being established. And, too, when the highway through the Notch from the Stowe side to the Jeffersonville side is completed so that automobiles can go through easily, the region will become even more pop ular. It is a real playground of na ture, Speed with which Austrian and Hun gary signed up treaties of peace with the United States after Germany did the same may indicate an un&atiated ap petite back of the action. Moreover, the action came soon after the UniteJ States began sending food into famine-stricken Russia and it may haw been partly induced by the expectation that the United States will rend aid to Austria and to Hungary to tide those, countries over the time of short rations. When anyone with such a matter-of-fact mind as Vice-President Coolidge declares that "there is every reason for the American people to feel encouragd at the outlook" (meaning the indus trial outlook) there is strong encour agement for all to take a more op timistic viewpoint. Coolidge is not uu excitable man, easily stirred by im pressions, but he takes a cool-calou-lating survey before he comes to a con clusion. Therefore, his opinion carries weight. Now that the horses of mounted jwv liccmen in Providence have been pro vided with shoes of live rubber to that the officers can steal up on the crim inals, the plan reminds of the intro duction of rubber heela on the shoes of school superintendent and teach ers as a mean to noiseless approach to the mischievous boys and girl who were not obeying the rule and regu ltions. Tho rubber heel were the ue for no slight degree, of pertur bation among a certain element in the schools. however, that the conference will bring a great deal of business to them inas much as the delegation from each of the countries attending will be quite numerous. For instance, there i Great Britain' delegation numbering one hundred people. Taking them al together,, it means quite an acclern tion in tha activities of Washington. In trying to secure a photograph and material for a life sketch of the new president of Middlebury college in it home town, the Middlebury Reg ister implored the new executive by mail, telephone and telegraph and met with the response tha.4 Pres.-elcct Moody had no photograph of himself of recent enough date to give an im partial representation of his appear ance at the present time and was averse to sending on advance material concerning his own activities up to date. So the contemporary concludes that "he is evidently the kind of man who prefers to do things unheralded" and takes satisfaction in the thought that "the few in Middlebury who have had an opportunity to make his ac quaintance arr unanimous iq his praise," etc. In some respects, Pres. elect Moody is much different from the usual run of persons in public life. HOTEL PROFITEERING. ' A Manchester (N. H.l paper reports that tourists in tho White mountains have had to pay from $24 to $42 for accommodations for two persons over night, with dinner and breakfast. If the story is true, it will not help to attract motor travel to New England. Not all motorist are millionaire or persons Who like to imitate million aires, and among the wealthy are many averse to paying twice what a thing is worth. Springfield Republi can. That sort of thing, if true, is what is going to kill the summer vacation business in New Hampshire despite the natural attractions which New Hampshire has. Taxing of guests to the limit of their supposed financial resources without regard to the value given in return is an utterly foolish policy. As the contemporary says, not all people who travel by motor vehi cles are millionaires and do not ex pect to pay prices which millionaire are able to pay and which they do pay in some instances although millionaires are quite often a averse to being "stung" as the person of lesser means.

These words were the thought of the writer of this brief sketch a he etood beside the open casket and looked upon the face of an acquaintance and friend of his youth, Fred Era Clark, who passed away in Benton, N. H., last week and whose remain were brought to Newbury to the home of John Good win, where the last rites of the church of which he was a member were con ducted on Saturday afternoon by Rev. Henry 8. Ives, and from thence, lvs body tat taken to the Oxbow cemetery and laid at rest with hi kindred. Fred Ezra Clark was the eighth child of Moses and Anna Kincaid Clark and was born in thi town Nov. 8, 1842. His boyhood day were spent in our village and at the early age of 19 years he heard and responded to the call of Abraham Lincoln and marclwd away with other Newbury boys to the south land with one indomitable purpose, that our union should be pre served and that this republic should not perish from the face of the, earth. Of those starting with bim few are left. He recently named them and gave their ages. ' So many are gone that long associations with them in cline the remainder to seek them, and make those left behind less reluctant to follow those gone before, even into the chambers of death, and thus it was with Ezra Clark. He was ready when the summons came. t Mr. Clark married June 14, 18(5, Sarah E. Page of Ryegate. Three chil dren were the result of this union, Fred D., Charles E. and Mabel, whose death occurred in infancy, while Fred passed on a few years ago. Mrs. Clark died July 20, 1894, and on May 28, 1895, Mr. Clark married Mrs. Eva Moore, vjho survives him. Howard Olmstead, a on of the late A. A. Olmstead of this town and now a resident of Washington, D. C where he is in the government employ, was calling on friends here the firt of the week. For the last fourteen months, Mr. Olmstead ha been at Guantanamo Bav, Cuba, and arrived in this coun try on the U. S. transport Hendern last week, feeling thankful that he was once more in God' country, and to get a little nearer heaven he im mediately took a train for Newbury. He expect to return to Washington next week and go from there to Tam pa, Fla., where he expect to remain through the winter month.
