That viewpoint doe not,' however, prevent the American people from recognizing humanitarian consid erations, with attendant efforts to bring about relief for harried and suffering peoples of the Near East The negotiations between govern ments are chiefly, wholly, one might say, the province of the countries which are, closely concerned, such as Great Britain, France and Italy. y Rubber pavements in liondon ought to give tbat elastic step the medicine makers tell about. And now along comes "Forget-me-not" clay. We should say they haven't fcrgotten anybody or anything In this '"day" business. fl ' mfesm1 The beet thing that could happen to Lloyd George just at this time is to have a sore throat so be cannot speak and put bis toot in it. That good-sized verdict in the West Berlin grade crossing accident won't have a tendency to make the public any more careless at that point till the railroad puts in some safety de vice. - ' The crab-apple tree at New Bruns wick, N. J., under which the bodies of the murdered rector and hi choir singer were found, has been carried away, trunk, limbs and' leaves, by the morbid souvenir hunters. It is strange, indeed, that they haven't carried off the entire farm, soil and all. Dartmouth's newest football star, quarterback Halsey Mills, gained his rhief claim to collegiate fame prior to the Vermont game by impersonat ing women in college dramatics. They used to say that men playing wom en's parts on the stage got to be ef feminate themselves, but quarterback Hills proved that theory a roorback by the virile masculinity displayed in he Vermont' game and then in the Harvard game. Another man who carried his bank around with him has learned the fool ishness of the plan. He was a man with a wooden leg, who had 'a nice little repository inside the wooden leg for his $340 in cash. But the man had to sleep now and then, and one night a bold : burglar came along, opened up Ufa safe deposit box in the man's leg and carried off the, $340. Knocked the props right out from un der him, so to speak. Wouldn't that make you bank your money f It looks like an unwarranted as sumption of authority on the part of liquor enforcement officers to arrest four occupants of an automobile and seize the automobile because the men did not heed a warning to stop while drivtig through the town of Holland in northern Vermont one night re cently. When the automobile did not stop on signal the ofiluers began us ing their firearms arid then the occu pants of the machine changed their minds.' On searching the automobile the officers did not find any liquor, for which they were looking; but they placed the men in custody and seized the car. From all reports there was no violation of the law failing to heed a signal to stop does not con stitute a violation of the law j yet the '.occupant of the automobile were treated as if they had been violators of the law and were put to consider able ignominy and no little inconve nience. The claim that the men were resisting an officer in the performance of his duty makes a decidedly thin veneer to cover up infringement on the rights of the public. After fail ure to find liquor in the automobile the men and machine should have been released. The Bennington Banner calls atten tion to one thing which may prove of value to new voters at the forth coming election in Vermont, particu larly to women voters who are voting for the first time. That is, that names of candidates for whom the voters wish to vote (on? for each office) must bt marked with a cross after the name and that the names of other candi dates must not be scratched out in any way. There may b'e an idea in the minds of some, new voters that i. is necessary to erase or obliterate the names of those for whom they do not wiah to vote, which idea is wrong and which, if followed out, would probably invalidate the ballot. So all voters should bear in mind that all they have to do is to mark a cross after tbe name of the candidate they wish to vote for, or if they wish to vote for the straight party ticket all they have to do is to make a cross at tbe space designated at the head of the party ticket. A good deal of con fusion of mind would be eliminated if the voters follow these simple Instruc tions! Have nothing to do with the names you do not wish to vote for. A WARNING UNHEEDED. The danger of using the railroad tracks for walking purposes is shown ey the death in rieilow halls of a railroad baggagemater who was walk ing on the track near Uharlestown. If an experienced railroad man finds it fatal, what about the careless way farer? Rutland Herald. Oddly enough, on the very day the contemporary gave that warning as the result of the fatality in Bellows Falls a Rutland boy walking on the track in Rutland was killed. The sec ond fatality certainly added emphasis to the first warning. A third fatality will come- before long, no doubt, to add its strength to the oft-repeated but as often-unheeded word of cau tion. There are some who read a warning and do not apply it to them selves; they consider , it meant for somebody else. Possibly, the Rutland school boy did not read the newspa per's warning, but his own sense of safety ought to have told him, as it ought to tell so many others, that walking on railroad tracks is one of the hazards of life.

Rogers & Company CURRENT COMMENT Satisfaction of tbe people of the I nited State in the decision of the ptvrnmnt not to participate in the Near East peace conference at Lau- Greene and Potash. Adoption by the Lamoille County rarra uureau 01 a resolution condemn ing the vote of Conirreman Y. L. Greene for a small duty on potash and urging Vermont farmers not to vote for him as United States senator from V ermont, has aroused some feeling throughout the state. Most of the potash used in fertilizers is imported from Germany and the farmers claim that imposing a duty on it will in crease the cost of their fertilizers and is, therefore, against their best inter ests. Mr. Greene in an address before the Franklin County Farm bureau has ex plained bis vote on the question. He says that during the war it was im possible to get potash from Germany and American firms sprnt large sums Our Safe-Deposit Vault Offers You These Advantages: Most modern construction, affording the high est degree of protection for your valuables against loss from any source.

Timr E4r W. i DTUCTOMt J mis tj Mra in an effort to produce potash at home: wiai the admission of potash from Or many free would destroy these Ameri can enterprises and leave the Amrican farmer again at the mercy of a foreiirn monopoly in both the supply and price or ins potash, in conformance with the Republican principle of protecting American industry and developing home production and independence rrom ioreign monopolies, he had voted fin- a duty on potash for a period of inreo years. At the end of that period it would be demonstrated whether or not American production is practical and, if it is not the American fanner would be relieved of paying anv dutv on potash. lo Ihe Reformer Mr. Greene s posi tion seems the stronger. hTe develop ment of a dependable aif dadquat sup ply of American potash would be worth while, . The effort to supply Amrican potash durin gthe war when no other supply waa available was a patriot io one and it should be given protection long enough to demonstrate whether or not it is a practical com mercial proposition. 4 be ethical question of direct politi cal action by any group aided by state and federal Rpropriations is also .in volved. hTe funds for farm bureau ppropriations are drawn from all groups and political parties and for any group like them to use any part of these public appropriations for propa ganda for or against the candidate of any political party is a questionable procedure. Brattleboro Keformer. 1. 1 1. KORTIl CALAIS Success or Failure The question is not how muck you would save if you had plen ty of money, but the question is, "Can you save some of what you are getting?" Anyone can save money if they have more than enough to pay all their expenses. James J. Hill put the same question this way, "Will you be a success or a failure? Here is the test are you able to save mon ey? If not, drop out; you will lose." The person who will save through good times and hard times is the person wrho will win out. Are you doing it? Now is the time to prove whether you will be a success or a failure. This strong National bank is ready to help you succeed. Will you do your part? Start a savings account to-day.
