Kemp severs another link between the old and new in Vermont business and politics. Born and brought up almost within sight of the State House, he drifted naturally into Montpelier, was active and successful in county politics and for many years one of the pillars of the Kepubucan organization. Jn bust ncss he was not always successful, and at one time it probably took the united financial power of some of the oiggest men in the state to avert very evident and menacing catastrophe, Hi death removes another human landmark of the older Vermont.

The verdict of over thirteen thou sand dollars against the Central Ver mont railroad on account of a cross ing accident is a pretty sharp re minder of what a jury may do when the question of negligence is raisea The crossing at West Berlin is dangerous crossing, alwav has been always will be. Long before there were automobiles it represented piece of road where drivers of teams realized the necessity of the warning: fstop, Look and Listen. . tven though the evidence ni ay have Aj the Springfield, Mass., Republi can says, if the forces of prohibition are to capitulate to the "wets" let it come about in orderly retreat by re peal of the 18th amendment rather than by successive defeats in skirm ishes over the enforcement act. On other hand, if the prohibition forces are not going to capitulate at all, they should stand to their guns convinced of the merit of their cause and certain of its eventual benefits to mankind. . f the It has been a long time since a New England railroad has had more busi ness than it could attend to, the sit uation in which the Boston & Maine finds itself now so that an embargo on freight from connecting lines west has been declared. Many Vermont points are favored by this unusual rush of business, and the increase of business is much appreciated from that standpoint. To the stockholder of the Boston & Maine it must seem like deferred dividends even though embarrassing in its volume. A fair agreement seems to hare been readied between the city govern ment of Holyoke, Mass., and the street railway company of that city, whereby the company will remove the enow from its track and then pay the city for the further removal of that snow from the city streets. Of course, it is to be expected that a street railway company will keep its right of way clear for the passage of its vehicles, else it would have to go out of busi ness; but when the company merely deposits tbie enow on the remainder of the roadway it is imposing on the shown a failure of the railroad to maintain its share of the premises sately, there is no reasonable doubt about the fact that if the driver of the Lefebvre car had stopped, looked and listened before entering on Ihe crossing the accident might not have happened. Juries, however, are apt to be swayed by the horror of such an accident! they feel sympathy for the bereaved: they overlook the possible careless ness of the driver: they find against the railroad. There was also a peculiar feature in the Lefebvre case a cinder ramp m the road which led to the station platform. This, the jury seems to have found, was a proximate cause of the accident. However that mav be and the su preme court will probably have to pass on the case before it is finally set tled The Herald cannot believe that the driver wag wholly blameless, any more than thousands of other drivers are blameless who dash across rail road tracks at a speed which would certainly mean an accident if they encountered a moving train thereon. Until the railroads and communities can get together on the elimination some of the more dangerous crossings, it does eeem as though the public might co-operate more with the rail road's "careful crossing"' campaign..

Rogers & Company - LETTERS TOTHE EDITOR j A Friend of the Little Red School house. Editor, Barre Times: I have fol lowed the discussion of the school question that has appeared in your paper very closely. X wish to sav I am very much in sympathy with "an old teacher and taxpayer," "mother of five," L. F. Kortney, D. J. Boyce and "Omega," and it seema ae though our next legislature ousrht to give this matter serious consideration. We call ourselves a great nation. great in every way. e feel we have (jreater intellect than most nations. We are proud of the state of Ver mont, we sire proud of her sons and daughters who have gone out into all parte of the world. Is it not true that a great per cent of them got most and the best of their training in the "little red schoolhouie"? Then why so unjustly condemn it an in stitution that has turned out more men and women with sound minds and practical education than any of the modern high schools to-day are ca pable oft I think the W.

They may have more expensive teachers that teach more languages and some new fangled notions, but I doubt if they can compare with many of the teachers of the "little red schoolhouse" when it conies to worth while educa tion that helps in bread winning. How do the mothers teel who so tenderlv and lovingly care for the lit tle children in their homes to have them sent off from three to six miles in some team or auto driven by any one who may be hired by the town, not knowing how they will he cared for on the trip or whether they will be half frozen on reaching school or not. It touches a tender spot in my heart to hear instructor and pupil alike underrate our good old district schools. If we had more of them, our country life would be happier, our hildren would attain a higher moral and intellectual standard, our aban doned farms would fill up and we hould altogether be progressing. Another point. I thinlc it little less than wickedness to teach our tiny tote things they are learning in our schools at the present time. Fables, nonsense, nothing that is true or could be true, eithor in what they read or have read to them, as near as I can learn. It is right to educate our chil dren, but shall we educate them on untruths, or on stories that have a real moral, that thev may profit by all their lives? It is true that the first three or four year of school life will be the ones that form impressions that last longest, in fact, all their lives. Is it nut, then, up to educators and instructors to see that there is something in their readings that will help to teach kindness to another, re fpect for others and the love of God, home and country! For God is left out of the schools too much, as well as everywhere else, and without God is failure everywhere. I wikh lornt of the educators and instructors would take the trouble to look up some of the primers and first readers used from fffl to rM) years a?o. I doubt if thev find them filled with "Jack Horner," "High Diddle, Diddle," and worse things. I think if the two W. II . S. students had been instructed by methods that surpass those of 60 years ago, there would have been competition among them . to see who would get the an swer first and someone would have sent in one that was correct. But now thpy can't do them, so they do a the whole world is doing now. They A Measure of Barre A well. known automobile manufacturing company in an advertisement, recently made this statement: "The modernity and importance of a town or city may be judged rather accurately by the extent and character of its automobile registrations. A locality high in truck registrations and with av erage proportions of low, medium and high priced passenger cars is a mod ern, industrial and mercantile community." This statement undoubtedly has somej merit as an index of community development, but there is also another measure which appears worthy of attention and that is the bank deposits of the town. The first measure is important but the latter is vital. Capital is created largely through savings and the- amoant of capital which an individual can command or draw upon 18 definitely m easured by what he has saved. ", The capital of a community is made up principally of the combined sav ings of the people within the community. ' . . Banks are reservoirs of capital taking in and letting out, according to the needs of the community, and if the community is strong and virile the flow of capital becomes constant. ' V Deposits are the streams flowing into the reserVoirand loans and invest ments are the streams flowing out, a reserve supply of capital being main tained at all times in the reservoir, the maintaining of which supply is es sential to the vigor and prosperity of the town. The bank deposits of Barre will compare very favorably with those of communities of equal size in "Vermont, and the per capita average is unusu ally high, the average deposit in this bank alone being $400.20. Save , what you can and make regular deposits. In this way you create a fund of capital available at any time for1 investment.. The savers of to-day are the capitalists of to-morrow.

One candidate claims . that his name has been illegally removed from the official ballot atthe instigation of thefriends of the other, who control the party machin ery. He has evidenced his intention to run just the same; apparently by the use of stickers.
