Th official weather bureau report of twenty-two rainy days out of thirty in June can readily be belied. But it is a record which the mo.ith of July eeems to be hard after. if The further "emancipation" of wom en was indicated by the attendance of several thousand of that sex at U.e Leonard -Kansas prize fight at Mieni gan City, Ind. Shall we next have the spectacle of a woman's prize ring championship t That Canadian plan to eel out a tree for every member of the Scottish battalions from Montreal killed in the , World war makes an appeal to senti ment quite strongly; but trees - 4, whereas monuments in granite re likely to stand for centuries. . Thoe Jooking for a lasting memorial wo ild choose granite in preference to perish able wood in the shape of a tree. The customs men in northern Vor mont have reason to give thanks lo the mud, if other people are inclined to execrate that same mud; an auto , mobile containing cix cases , of whis key, having eluded the vigilance of the customs men. was held fast by the mud at Newport Center so that its cargo and two human occupants were tantured. However, mud is an lly which cannot always be invoked by the enforcement agents. Vermont's gypay visitors are finding Vermont a very inhospitable state this summer, which is due to the fact that the gypsies have outlived their welcome and made themselves outrageously a nuisance. The authorities in the cit ies ana villages have taken up. the right course in sending the wanderers along; without permitting them a chance to work out their schemes and commit their .bold depredations. More over, when the thieving gang has got in some of its work, some individual has been forced to make restitution, which is contrary to precedent in gypsy-land. Let the good work go on; shove the gypsies along. Step this way and you'll cover the whole . bag proposition for your vacation trip.

The voters of the first congressional district in Vermont finally have some thing on which to start their plans for election of a successor to Frank L. Greene as representative in the na tional House. After an almost contin uous word barrage in the form oflct ters to the papers, Martin S. Vilas of Burlington has started his real offen sive by declaring, formally, his candi dacy for the Republican nomination for that position. Vilas' chief claim to state-wide acquaintance, aside from his letter-writing proclivity, is his three successive terms as senator from Chittenden county, although he has held several other official positions of some importance.. In his work as a state senator he gained considerable prominence. He was known as a hard worker and a conscientious student c.f public questions, albeit somewhat tire some in his presentations of opinion. Vilas is the antithesis of the magnetic in politics and what he has gained in official life has been mainly through the medium of an undoubted prsikt ence, coupled with the fact that lie has been known as conscientious. If ome dashing politician with a modi cum of ability should enter the race in the first district he would quickly over come whatever advantage Vilas Las gained bf initial entry and well-laid decire.

JOHNSON, JR. f S' CURRENT COMMENT Takinc a Vacation. , The habit of taking a vacation, com monly in the summer, isoften spoken of as practically a universal one. Yet millions of people never enjoy this respite from work. Some get too much vacation. Workers in Industrial plants complain that factories usually run somewhat irregular anyway, and they have to take their rest at times when the shops shut down. Many business men feel that they simply can't stop their work even for a few days, and that no one could per form their duties if they went away. But their business is poorly organized if anything stops In case of their ab sence. H Millions of fanners also never take a regular vacation. They can not commonly get away in the ?rop sea son, and in the winter they may feel no special desire to go, and may have no one whom they can leave in charge of their work. Many busy mothers work every day in the year and never take a rest.. - When , the industrial mille'iium comes everyone will have a chance to lay off for a brief period and be fiee to seek rest and chanjre. In that colrien age, factories will be arranged to run so regularly that the vorkers will be able to quit work, without having to worry for fear they may be idle k tig er than they want to. Business men and 'farmers who tick to their work every week in the year, do not realise the losses that thiy suffer. Tbey get a kind of nental rut and often suffer from physical wearineas. A man can do more work in 50 weeks than he can in 52. Tbis is equally true of the tired housewife. The mind and body reover elafti-'ity as the result of a wholesome outing, and people come back with a fresher point of view. They can ce further into their business problems and thev approach the same with more hope and enthusiasm. Vacations pay if reason ably used, and everybody ought to have them. fSt. Johnsbury Caledonian. Described. Hul I've brought home some pogo sticks for the children. Wife What are they?

WARD CARVER Solve This Puzzle We know, an old man who is worth about $40,000.00 and he claims that he has never had a dollar given to him and that all his earnings com bined are not more than his present wealth. j And yet he has not saved all he has earned in a life time. What is the answer to this puzzle? It is all very simple. Early in his life he began to save at least 25c out of every dollar he earned. This money was deposited in the savings depart ment of a bank and from time to time he made in vestments when his funds grew large enough for that. . vV: ' This plan has been working for more than for ty years. His total savings are only about $12,000, The balance of his wealth is INTEREST MONEY. Think it over.
