Therefore Vermont is facing a serious problem, vi, how to keep our loads open and worked. Postmaster General Hays is too good a man in the department to be sac rificed to tho "movie" world. There i quite general hope that he will re main in his present job, reports to the witrary notwithstanding. . s We had no idea of the obedience of German youth until wa learned that Berlin boy turned in 40,000 books of detective, cowboy and Indian stories and exchanged them for classical and other good reading matter, after which the formwr book were burned. There is a chance, however, that the boys may have perused the detective, cow boy and Indian stories to their hearts' content ani were perfectly willing and ready to , turn them In for exchange, no matter what the substitute was. The state automobile department is ' finding new avenues for its activities, as wa note from the press reports that an agent of the department tracked a state prison fugitive from Windsor to a point north of the Canadian Una and was instrumental in securing the ar rest of the fugitive Such work seems to be almost out of the line of duties of that department except that the man was committed to prison on a charge having to do with state automobile reg istration ant", it seemed somewhat in cumbent on that department to aid in the search. At any rate, the depart ment is to be commended for its per severance in the search and its desire to maintain the department's edicts inviolate. . GOOD ROADS SELL VERMONT . FARMS. , It is rather disquieting information that a Vermont tc wn has felt itself j obliged to. discontinue more than a . dozen roads, which have been public ' highways for varying lengths f time, J because of the necessity of reducing i the road expenses of the town. Ex- planation if mado that these - roads have been practically united for some ' time ani that the upkeep of them . serves no immediate purpose. With-I out a doubt that explanation means ! that then are many deserted farms on j the roads in question and tffat the j property is reverting gradually to its former condition of wildness and lack j of cultivction, albeit some of ' the ( meadows will probably be cut over , each year and the pasturage of some of the farms will be utilized. Under such ' conditions, Jt does seem like poor busi- ! ness policy to continue the repairs ani upkeep on these practically unused THE CHRISTMAS FIRE WARNING. ' The firemen's warning against the use of lights in connection with Christ mas celebrations is so reasonable as to command attention at least from all adults Who have any connection with such celebrations. The days when light ed candles are used on Christmas trees and iii connection with inflammable materials are past and they ought nev-1 er to return If lights are found nec- j essary to add to the attractiveness of j the decorations for the Christmas fes-! tivlties electric lights should be used; J but even with their iiee extreme care should be exercised to see that inflam- j mable materia'- do not come in con-' tact with the exterior of the bulbs. ' The Christmas season ought to be free of accidents, disasters and holocausts having oripin from careless use of ma terials fo" celebration. The elders should convey the warning to the youngsters whenever necessary. officers are called in. They observe tho ruin wrought. Arrests follow. The bus hnnd in hrnniflit before the court. So bered, he admits all, a large part of which he 'really knows nothing of, for he was drunk when it all occurred. Ho tells the officers where he procured the poison that dethroned his reason. One who sold him for filthy lucre is fined some of the filthy lucre and goes free to dispense some more. Anotner, wno furnishes the "home brew" is sen tenced and allowed to go free on prom ises and under conditions. The authorities of the primary cause are at liberty.' What of tho vietiraT Having admitted that wb4 drunk the tmnifs alleeed- happened, lie is sen tenced to the house .of correction at Windsor for a term of not less than one venr nor more than two vears and is committed. Thero is deep gloom over that once happy home. The taxpayers can provide the food to leeri the wife and children, the tuei to ke them warm, but they cannot make the home without the husband and father. I would not criticize the officers nor the court, but I am told that thie wife and mother had no hearing before the court. Has justice been done herf Ought not mercy to be extended for her and the children's benefltf Rum did it.
