I'ri in thla paper, and also tha local newa published therein. ' , ' Incidental!;, 'winter lias been having earjiivHl on dm own hook. A Hood deal lias been said about Licttt.-Uov. Foote's feelings .while tem porarily iii, the governor's chair, but nothing bus becnsaid as" to how Gov. Ilarlness fell" as a private citizen. " Cardinal Bourne is in Rome. Per. hapi he went early to explain how it happened that positive , report came f roin his ottiee in London that Pope Benedict had died approximately ten hour before the end actually eaine to the pontiff. That is something which needs explaining almost, as much as the' announcement of the armistice in the World war long ifefore the armi stice wai a fact' : 'The dear young things in the femal section of the freshman class of the University-of Wisconsin who vow they will not marry a man having an annu al income of less than $20,000 must l:jvc In mind a world of professional baseball in which diamonds are an ev eryday occurrence and the stars won't swing a bit for less than ten dollars a swing. The "Wisconsin freshman co-' eds have a long life of single .blessed ne"ss ahead ef them, it seems probable. triumph or American and allied arm would be chronicled. Then, too, there was th" awful fear in the Jieart of tlio,e wl;j had near relaliva and loved ones "an the front." Those day are nearly four years gone past but they are still fuirly fresh in the niid of the American people, coining back to attcMtlcrij now and then with fresh re surgence of pity that such tilings have to be and that such things are per mitted to be. If the homo folks in Oreece'an," In Nationalist Turkey have any Mich feelings as the home Ameri cans experienced thry are no doiibf vearniua even no for - the cessation of the trifp in the war area of Asia Minor, allieit the warfare, there Is of infinitely smalle? proportions than that which brought 'anguish, and euflcring in the World war. It is a pity that nations revert to barbarity a pity In Asia Minor just as much as it is a pity 'in. the western world. Lack or any startling news from the various cities of Ireland must be put down as evidence that the Irish Free State is making progress toward the establishment of a stable government fend that it i. being given at least the quiescent supprot.of the groat mass of the jieop.'e of Ireland. Ex-President Do Va'era'i attitude as ft private citi zen has not been" clearly set forth. No doubt there will be an important berth for him providing he is willing to ac cept office tirfder the new government Poland is said to "be anxious to do business with American concerns, but on a credit basis only. American con cerns can do. that kind of business in the United fctatei any time they wish toj but there is a certain drawback to that line w activity5. One would ex pect that a greatly, intensified draw back . would attach to similar trade with .busiress interests in Poland. American ccncerm that engage in manufacturing for Polish interests will go into the matter 'with their eyes open and their wit sharpened. "WASHBOARD" KOADS AND TREES 'The mult of the questionnaire con ducted by the state highway depart ment !n order to find out the cause of the "'washboards ' on Vermont high ways, seems to shows, among other things, that the "washboard" effect is rarely fcund on hill roads or on "curves, The inference from this information points unmistakably to the fact that the "washboards'', are. caused .by -the speed of the motor vehicles passing over tiio roads. 1 At . the - same time speed of moto vehicles does not have a tendency to develop "washboards" unless the otha. conditions are right for that Hieet. A highway in a shaded or damn territory is protected irom the "washboards." We have an illus tration of that in Williamstown gulf, At the base of the little hill at the porth end of the gulf is a level stretch of road whiclurs the favorite spot for speeding by; motorists. ' Cars traverse this stretch at a rate anywhere from 10 miles an hour to (10 miles" an hour and more; yet this highway is not cor rugated with "washboards ' and, s as smooth a 'boulevard as one could wish for. Of course, the toad is "a good one and is well maintained, so that its re sisting powers are. perhaps greater than the average highway in Vermont; but that condition would - not be proof against "tie ' wearing influence of mo tor vjhich-s were it not for the fact that the read is protected to a con siderablo i-xlent by trees and is fur ther protected by the dampness from a brook st its very edge. The lesson to be drawn is that roads are protected very much by trees and that it would be good economy, in the years to come, to set oi' t shade trees alongside the roads of Vermont The policy of tree planting along the roads of the state has its merits in this respect. . .'. . & Attention ! Income Tax ers ' ' Pay ay Mr. Archie M. Peisch, Certified Public Accountant and Profes sor of Accounting at the Amos Tuck School, ; Dartmouth College, will be at the.

The Peopies National Bank of Barre Mat VPS? A New York clothing store advertised, Uri derwear you've always worn WORTH CALAIS A confession is made by the Middle bury Register that it has been beaten out in n business deal. A few weeks ago thi esteemed contemporary re ceived a request from Ifenry Ford's paper, the Dearborn Independent, for exchanjj privileges, and it acquiesced, fcince then the Middlebury editor has been perusing the columns of said Dearborn Independent and, while try ing not tc be hasty in judgment and purposing to give the other fellow the benefit of the doubt, it really inclines to the Jirlitf that it has "lost out" in the excluinjre courtesies although ad mitting that "it is too soon to pass Judgment " The chief trouble in the exehanfe was that the Middlebury con temporary gave a real newspaper in rxchangc for a bit of private amusement. Taken at their face value, Japan's word in declaring that she has no in tention ot violating the territorial in tegrity of llusaia are about all that the other nations of the arms confer r nee can de; ire in t!iat phase of the Sicusion. Sow, if Japan will set a ! tlste not too far ahead when she plans to evacuate Siberia the confer tnce may conclude that 1t has done wry well indeed and can turn its at tention toward clearing up tome of the ather diliiull problem of internation al relslion.
