The coasting fatalities and injuries will soon replace the motor vehicle accidents. It's just one kind of dan ger after another. Clemenceau passed through St, Loo ey without, tripping over a bomb or looking a gun in the face. In this case, the bark was far worse than the bite. We cannot honestly say the new half-hose rubberboota the girls are wearing are any improvement over the flapping overshoes of last year not for enhancing the beauty "of the said girls, -i Now they have started something worth while--an old-fashioned "spauk ing week." If ever any kind of a week was heeded it is a "spanking week" although there is some doubt whether there is time enough in one week to complete the needed work. The fire in a dormitory of Colby college in Waterville, Me., by which j several students lost their lives, is one of the terrible features of the news of the day; but the examples of hero ism on the part Wf some of the stu-1 jfrits m arousing their mates serve to add a brighter side to the awful story. The usual biennial clamor for clos ing up the work of the Vermont legis lature early has started, one newspa per, the Bristol Herald, declaring that the legislator can finish up their work ill sixty days. They'll have to work more expeditiously than usual if they accomplish such a feat. ' However, the sentiment of the people of the state" really is in favor of a short session. Charles ; Ponzi, acquitted in a Mas sachusetts state court of larceny in connection with his 50 per cent re turns in 90 days, appears to be about as much of a marvel in handling a jury as ha was in turning over mil lions of dollar. In fa"., he is so much of a marvel in the former re spect that he hai Attorney General Allen sputtering, if not guessing. Pon i handled his own defense in the pros ecution. However, he has about twa years more of his federal sentence., to serve, which is temporary consola tion for the prosecuting officer. , Be good to your hands They are the best you ever had or can get. .

Rogers & Company "The Strength of the Hills" What is more impressive of stability, more symbolic of per manence, than the rock ribbed monster of the hills? The mighty mountain with its face of rugged rock, " wind swept and tempest beaten, holds its head in a timeless firmament and looks down thru the valley of eternity. In comparison, how very short is human existence and how in finitesimal many human works appear. Verily, "A thousand years is as a day." v ; A banking institution must start from a very small beginning, growing larger and stronger as time goes on. Generations come and go but the old bank keeps steadily on; it faces the storms of business depression, checks the extravagances ef immature booms and keeps business going on an even keel. , i - . The old Peoples National is building for future generations and its conception of public duty is to so conduct its affairs that it shall go on ever and ever and be serving others long after the holders of its present trust have balanced their earthly ac counts. ' ' ' Peoples National Bank of Barre 4 per cent The Only National Bank in Barre -4 per cent Was Franklin Wrong? Ben Franklin said a great many wise things In his day. One of his sayings that has been widely quoted is : "A dollar saved is a dollar earned." But one of our depositors says this is not true that Franklin was all wrong. He says: fit is impossible to save all you earn. The average man earns $5 for every dollar he is able to lay - aside." You might say that he has ?4 expense to each dollar of profit. . If then, it is necessary to earn $5 in order to save $1, don't you see that any plan that saves an extra dollar is as good as ?5 earned? Or to bring Franklin's famous saying up-to-date we must say "A DOLLAR SAVED IS FIVE . DOLLARS EARNED" . What do you think about it? - ,- Quarry Savings Bank and Trust Co. QUARRY BANK BUILDING BARRE. VERMONT. RANDOLPH The woman domestic in the .Wash ington county jail who took it' upon herself, while in charge of the jail, to let two federal prisoners out of their confinement into the office in or der to telephone, resulting in the es. cape of one of them, seems to "have far exceeded her reasonable authority, in the absence of Sheriff Tracy, Depu ty Sheriff Law ton or Mrs. Tracy, who is also a deputy sherjff. In conse quence, the authorities had a pretty large-sized job forced on their hands to catch this man, Arsene Mady, who U charged with varying offenses, in cluding that of transporting liquor illegally. strikes by patriots of Ireland, so that a simple treatment of letting the pris oners alone (with food regularly pro vided) i likely to prove effective. It is safe to say that a few days of fasting will satisfy most of the fol lowers of this method of opposing the law, and they will be ready to eat their three1 aqware meals a day. , The let-alone policy is strongly reeom mended for them. The iunger-strike-in-jail fad has spread to the United States and is now being followed by a prisoner in jail at Lawrence, Mae., who is charged with passing worthless checks. There isn't the same feeling of mar trydom back of these -American cases as there was back of the hunsrer THE LUSITANIA CARGO. Revelation by Dudley Field Malone, collector of the port of New York in 1915, concerning the conditions aboard the steamship Lusitania, which was sunk off the coast of Ireland on an eastward trip from New York, may be taken to be accurate in so 'far as it was possible for the collector of the port to be accurate. Mr. Malone de clares in a definite statement that the Lusitania carried 5400 cases of ammu nition, wnicn, presumably, was con signed for the allies; but it did not carry any guns of any description on her decks, mounted or unmounted, masked or unmasked and, further more, it did not carry Canadian troops or any troops a such, albeit there may hve been individual soldier or nationals planning to enter service '. who engaged their individual passages. This Malone report silences some of th mg th man torpedo (if to sunk) was justi fied by the nature of the business be ing done by the Lusitania. For mak ing this revelation, tardy as it ia, and apparently done against the wishes of the United States government, Mr. Malone is to be commended. Where truth is at issue the wrapping of a lot of official red tape Heservei to be cut. The government had held, it is lirtderstnorl ihstt th mivW tV.

We understand there is still a substantial amount of these notes outstand ing in the hands of investors, which means a loss of interest from the call date is being sustained. t It is the announced intention of the Treasury De partment to call approximately $1,000,000,000, face amount, of the Victory 4 3-4 per cent notes as of De cember 15, 1922. The notes which will be called for redemption bear the distinguishing letters "A." "B," "C," "D." "E," or "F" prefixed to their serial num bers. , We suggest that you check your holdings of Liber ty bonds to make sure that you are not holding any of the Victory 3 3-4 per cent notes which were called last spring and also to see that your called Victory 4 3-4 notes are presented promptly to avoid loss of in terest In this connection, we offer our services to prevent the losses which sometimes occur when bonds are called and notice of redemption does not come to th attention of the holder.
