in The Vermonter that the Vermont
Hotel association ha offered $100 in
prizes to high school students for Uie

respective towns. The boys and girls
are thu to be stimulated into found
ing the glories of their thriving burgs.
Some of these eulogies would be worth
reading. J lie best effort in this line
of local glorification that the Nomad
can now recall is .). Whitcomb Riley's
poem on Tallholt. Ind., which contains
the refrain, 'The little town of Tallholt
is good enough for me.' The Nomad
ha alwayi been interested in the form
of local eulogy which may be called
Tallholdt literature, and at he is also

any country Inn or boarding house, as

The occasional snarl of a stray lynx
or a bob-cut in the woods is also a de- j
cided asset. But bears are getting so ,
scarce on the Vermont hills as to bs '
practically - non-exktent. Meanwhile
the . rulfi'd grouse, or, in the - local
toimue, the 'patrldge,' is going the way
of the passenger piireon, and the recent
change of the state law authorizing
the nhooling of does threatens the ex
tinction of the deer, lately so abun
ant in nearly all jiarts of the state. It
is f i tiiinlv' a very short-sighted pol
icy for the Vermont peplc to permit
the extermination of the wild crea
tures, What a sad picture of a possible
future for the state Is that which Incj!
Howe draws in The Vonnonten ,
" 'Let us imagine, If we can, a visit
to tho Vermont hills in 1975. If mat
ter go on as they are now fast going,
instead of wooded hills and fertile
valleys, watered by gurgling moun
tain streams, numerous song and insec
tivorous birds in woods and fields, wild
game and matchless wild flowers, this

rock-rib of their being laid bar by
erosion, meadows below laid waste,

wild life at its lowent ebb, and we
shall crv out, "Whera ire the green
hills of Vermont"?'
"The Nomad refuses to believe that
this scene will ever be witnessed. No
body can denude these wonderful hills,
But it U highly probable that the peo
ple need to be aroused to the unfor
tunate effect upon the attractiveness
of their state of the' reckless destruc
tion of wild life."
Queer Salesmanship.
A London weekly in an imaginary
interviow with Lloyd George makes
him say during an oratorical outburst,
This Ship of State lurches perilously
on the ocean. The helmsman stands
ttark and Arm on the crosstrees." No
wonder it lurches perilously with the
oelmsinan standing half way up the
