MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The AssoelaUd Pms is exclusively to the use for republication of all new a patrhrs credited to it or not otherwise cred ited in this coper, and also the local new published therein. Vermont people will be pleased to learn that V. 8. Senator Carroll S. J'uge i making gain, though slowly, at his home in Hvtle Tark and that he hopes to be abb to return to Wish iivjton to resume his duties within a short time. They tell about one Vermont agri cultural fair whose midway covers "several acres." Is there not danger that the original idea of the agricul tural fair is being lost sight oft In the desire to secure large attendance and popularity are we not trying to cater too much to the desire for the pwtacu!ar and the bizarre! Vermonters are said to be putting more of their money into legitimate and reasonably safe investments in stead of wildcat schemes, which blow .in from the west or which arise in our more immediate breeding-places of doubtful ventures. For instance, Ver mont has passed Montana in the p-o-portion of purchase of United States government savings securities and is tied with California. More Vermont money is also finding its way into municipal bond issues and savings banks or itd possessors are turning their attention more keenly toward that class of investment in preference to the wildcat schemes. Vermont's even position with Ore gon in the struggle for sixth position among the tuberculosis registration states as regards low mortality from tuberculosis is a proud one and worthy of maintenance against the great odds which are opposing the various efforts at work in the state. According to the publicity department of the Na tional Tuberculosis association, only Utah, Kansas, Wisconsin, Michigan and Montana have a lower death rate per 100,000 of population than Ver mont has. Utah and Kansas have the surprisingly low rates of 45 and 01, respectively, per 100,000, while Wis consin, Michigan and Montana are practically the same as Vermont and " Oregon. Wisconsin has a death rate of 84 and Vermont has 01. Our posi tion with Oregon and closely followed by Miunesota means that Vermont must make a great struggle to main tain its position. The Rutland News hints that dif ferences of opinion among citizens of its community caused the manager of the Rutland Chamber of Commerces to resign after trying for a year to get things going satisfactorily. Differ ences of opinion about matters per taining to the welfare of a communi ty are inevitable; and it becomes the duty of the city manager, "the manag er of a chamber of commerce and a paid secretary of a civic organization to harmonize those divergent views as much as possible with a purpose to make one strong, concerted pull in the direction of progress. This duty pre supposes that the official in question has a superlative degree of taut and persistency combined at least more than the average amount of tact and persistency. Perhaps the emphasis should be laid on tact. A man with out considerable tact cannot hope to make good, however much co-opr-tion be may receive from some mem bers of hi organization or from the citizens of his community as a whole. Admittedly, it is a difficult position to be in. Basing th estimate on new names added by the compilers of the town directory, tome Brattleboro people be lieve that their town's population is now approximately 10,00V 9,SS8, to be rxaot in contrast to the official figures of f-TU,' as secured by the V. S. census enumerators les than two years ago. -Such an increase in pop illation in so short a time and under ruth slack times in business would be most remarkable indeed; and there i considerable doubt outride of Brt tlehoro and by more conservative a timators in Hrattlcboro that the loan has made an advano of such propor tions. It is possible that Brattlfboro ha been gaining in population during the last to years, but we have founj that figures compiled by makers of the dilatory are a rather unreliable basis on which to make an estimaUt. If are were to rely on the figures of new names added to the liarrc direc tory, le the name dropped, we should fcav to conclude that Barre has made substantial gains in popi lation ainca the 1920 census; but w do not b licre that Barre has made siK-h gams aut the net iixreasv in name in the directory would wm to ind'K-ate. Whether th ylen of tailing namea for the Brattleboro di rectory is BJre exact than it is in Barre is matter of doubt. We unj-r-ftnd that t te LicUr wrrr com piled by the same firm and, presum ably, under the same system of gath ering names and compiling figured. However, we sincetely hope that Brai tleboro has been making (extensive gains in population even though the increase there might jeopardize Barrc's position as third in tho state as to population, or threaten to displace Bennington as fourth. THE UNEMPLOYMENT DISEASE. It is more or less negative consola tion to be told that unemployment conditions in the United States at the present tiniu are not so bad as tiVy were in 1014; yet one is compelled to accept the statement of Secretary Da vis of the labor department at its face value. Secretary Davis declares thrn were 7,000,000 out of employment in the United States in 1914, as compared with 5,735,000 at the present time. No doubt the unemployment comes more forcibly now because of the fjet that it follows a lush time in whic!i everybody was working who wanted to work and in which the scale of wages was so high as to induce proflig acy in a considerable portion of the workers. To slump after such condi tions to a state of affairs in which millions are walking the streets in search of something to do is more striking than it would be to taper down gradually to a similar situation. So the country really is no worse off, if as badly off, than it was in 1914, and with this difference that the sup plies are being consumed so that ,-oon-er or later there is going to be a marked demand for commodities of nearly every sort. The glutted mar ket caused by the over-production of the war period and immediately there after is being depleted. Sometime that market will have to be replenished, and the normal course of supply aud demand will once more take up its in fluence, unhampered by the extraordi nary conditions superinduced by a woTld cataclysm. There is gTeat hope in the resumption of normalcy. PLAIISFIELD Mr. and Mrs. Fred Buffee and Sam. Harmon attended the Rutland fair. Misses Ruth and Ellen Greeley visit ed their aunt, Mrs. J.

T am ijfounMant Too Many Duplicates. "I'm through with Gloria for the rest of my life," said Charlie as he seated himself in a comfortable chair at the club. "What's the trouble!" asked Jack. "Hasn't she written to you lately!" "Yes, I just received a long letter from her," answered Charlie with a long face. ' "Wasn't it as endearing as usual! asked Jack with a twinkle in his eye. "Yes, just as much as ever," replied Charlie. "Then, for Pete's sake, what is the trouble!" inquired Jack impatiently. "The letter," mumbled Charlie, "was a carbon copy." New York Sun.
