Jhe president of the organization, It. B. MacRea of Castleton Corners, and himself the owner' of an orchard of I'ii.OOO trees, told the apple growers of Vermont that they have most serious competition from the orchardiets of the state of Washington and that they might as well recognize that fact to tthe extent of improving their crops 15-22 ' and enlareinff their market.

Harding did nothing out of the ordinary in appointing a Dem ocrat, Pierce Butler of Minnesota, to the bench of the United States su preme court. In fact, custom decreed the appointment of a Democrat. Re publicans should not become alarmed. The tragic death of Dr. George A. Still at Kirksville, Mo., removes one of the moat outstanding figures in the field of osteopathy. He was one of the pioneers of that school of treating human ills and had attained as much prominence as anyone in osteopathy. William A. Gaston, Democrat, de feated in his aspiration to become United States senator, makes a sworn statement that his only cam paign expenses were two gifts, total ling $4,000, to the Democratic state committee. It would be worth while to hear from the Democratic state com mittee now. y As many as fifteen Vermont young men took the competitive examina tions recently for appointment to West Point and the Naval academies. This does not necessarily mean the outburst of militaristic spirit in Ver mont; rather, an appreciation of the advantages offered for improvement fcnd for service. , Parents seeking novelty names for their female children ought to study the Wellesley college catalogue, for there they will find names that will reach the widest range of the imagi nation. For instance, there are Chaille, Wilda, Silha, Varena, Laliah, Leoma, Juvanta, Gieella, Eltse, Elabel, Ce vina, etc There must have been close collaboration between the parents of these young ladies and the writers of so-called modern -fiction. David Lloyd" George, ex-premier of Great Britain, has started to build up his political prestige again. Election unanimously as the leader of the Na tional Liberal is the first public step in that direction. Such an honor is more or less a matter of course, but it nevertheless gives Lloyd George the groundwork for building upon more extensively. fruit. Several ventures which have gone' far beyond the experimental stage have already demonstrated the truth of the statement; there, h no needto go to western New York, to Virginia or to the far northwest in order to raiBe apples of the "A" va riety. Vermonters can raise such ap ples right at home and, after raising them, have, the advantage of a short haul to the New York City market or to some other of the many large cit ies easily reached from .Vermont, in contrast to the long haul across the continent from the state of 'Washing ton. It is strange, indeed, that there has been practically no apple, tree planting in Vermont during the last seven or eight years as Mr. MacRea staVs. To be sure, something besides enthusiasm is necessary in order to make a successful' venture; but per severance, as Mr. MacRea points out, can accomplish wonderful things. Ver mont ought to- be as famous for its apples as it is for its granite, its mar ble, its maple sugar and its butter and milk, along with other products. , , . . j LETTERS TO THE EDITOR j - ; ' Where Are tha Lights on Teams?. Editor, Barre Times: We often spoak of the above as we travel through the country in an auto, and it was brought quite forcibly to our mind last Saturday evening, on our way from Chelsea to Barre City. Aa we went down the hill, nearly to Washington village, we saw a pe destrian coming up, caj-rying a lan tern. The driver was watching him, and as we got juwt past him, the driv er happened to see a team on his left, even with the front wheel. They were without a light, and had evidently kept to the side of the road, out of the rays of the auto lights. By quick work, we passed them safely, but from there to the city, we met six more teams, three double team, and two single teams, without lights, nd just one team carrying a light.' If they could see how careless it looks from the autoist'a point of view they would certainly carry that one light to attract his attention, for he doesn't know whether It ia a team or a' one-eyed car, coming and will in variably slow down. But when they drive to one side of the road, out of the rays of the headlights, the driver cannot fee them until directly oppo site; then If there is a smash up, and someone badly hurt, the autoint geta all the blame. Safety first, please. An autoist. CURRENT COMMENT Methods of thief detection tried in Dummerstpn, though effective, are not recommended for general use. A resi dent of that town who had hern miss ing wood from his pile "loaded" one particularly attractive chunk with powder and waited results. He didn't wait long. The chunk of wood disap peared, and a short time later a neigh bor's kitchen stove was blown into scrap iron. Fortunately, no one was injured and even the neighbor' house was not set afire; but the thief was branded unmistakably. According to the Brattlcboro Reformer, the incident recalls the days of our grandfathers who sometimes took means of punish ment into their own hands without waiting for the slow processes of the law. If death or serious injury had been done through the blowing up of the stove, the present incident might j have turned into a boomerang prose cution instead of just a clever trick to make a certain person the laughing stock of the town. The latter possi bility ought to be taken into consid eration by anyone disposed to repeat or match the trick of the loaded'' chunk of wood. VERMONT AS AN AFPLE STATE.
