Archie Persons and Will Foster of Xorth Montpelier were recent visitors in the village. ', A new rtar lias appeared on the hor rizon of politics from recent remarks heard about the State House and, in fact, reports along that line were heard last week in the eastern side of the state, namely, that Silas C. Carpenter of Riehford, who has been so often mentioned of late as a candidate for state treasurer, is in reality looking over the field to see how the governor ship stands. It is being urged in business circles that with the financial conditions aa they are now and are likely to be for a few years there ahon'ld be at the head of the state (government a man who understands I business affair and that Senator Car-; penter is the best fitted of any ot thorn who have been mentioned for that of-j fice. There seems to be quite a bit or agitation in some quarter over the new name. There is also some feeling that J. Rolfe Searles of St. Johnsbury, recent ly elected potentate of' Mt. Sinai tem ple, Nobles of the Myotic Shrine, will not be a candidate for attorney- gen eral against Frank C. Archibald. A recent trip through Vermont shows but little interest being taken in politics, there being a feeling that those who, have been making cam paigns in their quiet ways have en tered the game too early and there j seems to be ft feeling that it is bet to wait and see if some new names will not appear for the several state offices. A vcar ago Neil Clawson stated he would not be a candidate for state auditor but of late there seems to be quite a bit of feeling that be miu'ht he induced to seek the oftiee. air. l.lawson has a good position now and in the last campaign intimated the reduction in compensation did not appeal to him. That Charles Staples of Brattlcborc who was mentioned recently to sueeeci', W. F. Scott as state treasurer, is not in the field seems to lie the sentiment recently heard from the southern por tion of the state. Aside from a few dissatisfied auto--nobile owners, the general opinion if hat Harry A. Black will have no oppo sition for secretary of state. But every person in public ofliee, who does his duty, is sure to meet some disgruntled person e.pecial!y if his license is taken away so he cannot operate his automo bile. Fred B. Thomas of Montpelier, who waa surprised when offered the ap pointment of tax commissioner to suc ceed M. G. Morse, seemed to be bctUr acquainted with the duties1 of that of fice than it was at first believed. He is changing the policy of the office rela tive to peddlers and may find "other places for improvements. IP YOU DRINK JAPANS .-.

CHRISTMAS Sh'OPfii.5 When a Federal Bureau reminds you that children should not drink coffee or tea Why not think of your own health? The Federal Bureau of Education includes in its rules to promote health among the Nation's school children, the warning that children should not drink coffee or tea. The reason is well known. Coffee and tea contain drugs which stimulate and often over-excite the nerves, and so upset health. The harm is by no means confined . to children, as any doctor can tell you. If health is valuable to childhood, it is valuable always. If harm to health should be avoided until bodies grow up, is it worth taking a chance with health when bodies have grown up? You can have that delicious and satisfying cereal beverage, Postum, with any meal, and be safe you, and the children, too. There's charm with out harm in Postum. Postum cotnea in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins) made instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling water. Postum Cereal (in package of larger bulk, for those who prefer to make the drink while the meal is being prepared) made by boiling for 20 min a tea. Soldy all grocers. The road to health is a good road for anybody to follow. rfir r- V . I I 1 1 jap-. " - - fc.
