The jiew premier of Italy, Benito Mussolini, appears to be of the mailed fist type, or else a terrible fire-eater. One interpretation of the British parliamentary election is that the peo ple intend Lloyd George to take a rest. The stockholders of the Citizens' Telephone Co. operating in northwest ern Vermont have decided that until the service on their line is improved to tie extent that there will be great er satisfaction on the part of patrons of the company they themselves will forego all dividends, putting the earn ings into betterments of the service. That (determination ought , to go . far toward restoring the Citizens' Tele phone Co. into popular favor up that way, A satisfied public, or as nearly eo as possible, counts, in the ultimate declaration of dividends. Maine towns and cities are naming committees tfor their winter carnivals. It is part of the campaign to rob the Kew .England winter of its terrors, and make it add to the joy of life. Bowton Transcript, Which reminds that Vermont is not to tie outdone by Maine in this par ticular, as many cities and towns of the former state have already desig nated their various committees to take charge of the general movement to capitalize Vermont's winter into health and money. Some people are predicting we are not going to have much of a winter, but it's certain there'll e enough to do business with anyway. So, let the winter sports preparations continue and redouble. Several letters to the editor regard ing the outcome of the recent election In Vermont have come to the office without the signature of the writer, and they have been consigned to the waste basket. Readers should not get the impression because letters -previously printed did not bear the name of the writer but were signed by a nam de plume that the real names of the (riters were not submitted along with the communications with a request that the nom de plume be used. Nora do plume letters in the paper do not ' mean that the editor of the paper does not know the names of the writers. In this connection we should like to J say again that letters signed by the namfes of the M'riters in the newspaper Itself bear far greater weight. 0L' WINTER IS COMING OUT!

This in spite of the vital statistics showing a natural Increase of 1,830,000 in population during the tn-year period, not to speak of the increase from immigration. Canada is over-ambitious in the matter of pop ulation and decidedly touchy about it too. Of course, the reason why Cana da does not grow faster is because of the greater general attraction to the people south of the boundary line. Io casting about for a solution of the double murder at Orford, N. II., In which two elderly men were slaia by having their heads smashed in by a axe, the authorities have, perhaps, given some attention to the possibil ity that the double crime (and probable robbery betides) was committed by pne or more of the desperado who bav been engaged in the transporting of liquor from the Province of Quebec down through Vermont and New Hampshire into the larger market for that kind of goods. Events prior la the) outbreak of this nartirnlar rrima have given positive proof of the 4prat character of some of th Bien engaged in this lawlessness of rum-running, lo some ol these law breakers, life of other is of no account If they meet resistance. It is possible that ona or more rum runners, ia the course of their jour trying Lack and forth became cog- nant of the two elderly men and card of tha stories that th two wer terurtnmed to carry large sums of coney aV.ut with them, with the r ,u't that the de.ire to obtain the nion it induced them to commit the double aurder. It i a theory thst deers Lower Waterford, recently described by a writer in a Boston newspaper as a deserted village, with empty houses and stores staring at the passerby, is described differently by a writer in the St. Johnsbury Caledonian, who writes at some length about a Farm Bureau meeting and who says: In point of interest shown in the pro jects presented and the number of peo ple in attendance, it (the meeting) was the most important meeting of; the series up to the present time." That's reassuring indeed. The Boston news paper writer's description of Lower Waterofrd left one with a depressed sta,te of mind that such an attractive little village as Lower Waterford should be going into decay, with its population practically wiped out through migration to other scenes of activity. Perhaps the picture was too much overdrawn. Perhaps Lower Wa terford was merely at the turning point of the ebb. At any rate, the writer in the Caledonian gives encour agement to believe that Lower Water (Mde of the cases occurring on grade crossings; and it is a reasonable ac tion on the part of the railroads to be sure. We blame the railroads when the entire responsibility for accidents at crossings should, In some instances, rest on the drivers of the motor vehi cles. This new defense by the rail roads should serve to establish a fair division of responsibility. CURRENT COMMENT Thinks Advertising Paid. It is noticed that those Democrats who told their story through news paper advertising got at least favor able mention. These were Ir. W. B. Mayor, James Kennedy and Burton E. Bailey of Montpelier. Aside from these one would not know there was such a thing in Vermont as a Democrat. Draw your own conclusions. Xorth field News. Don't Let Memorial Holidfya Lapse.

One can see in the present policy of one railroad company in Vermont reporting collisions of motor vehicles and trains to the state motor vehicle department a purpose to show up the eras carelessness of a large number of motor vehicle drivers. known, public opinion generally I against the railroads In the considera tion of accident at grade crossing; it is almost always considered that the railroad, or it agents ar to blame when trains and motor vehicle col lide; or, if not to blame, tha railroads ought t be made to stand the con sequences. Terhap it is to combat this state of mind on the part of the public that the railroads have begun the policy of Betting forth their own "Railing" a Show by Dartmouth Stu dents.
