HAZIXU AT TAVAL ACADEMY. Action by Secretary of the Xavy Denby in ordering the di-mi-l of two midshipmen from the naval acad emy and the reducing in class standing of three other midshipmen for the prohibited offense of hazing meets with approval of the American people who care for the best god to be done by that institution.

Rogers & v ' Company ' 1 A Happy Solution Many of the vexatious family financial troubles could be elim inated through the exercise of a little forethought. - For example: every family, has certain necessary expendi tures to make during the year such as those for clothes, food, taxes, insurance, charity, entertainment, etc. If an estimate was made of the probable total of these iems and, at least once each month, a proportion was taken from in come sufficient to pay one-twelfth of the total, bills would become less burdensome, prompt payments could be made, and the neces-v sity of-keeping within the family income would be reflected in increased family savings. This simple program would avoid many of the complications and details of so-called "savings clubs" and could be carried out ' without inconvenience to the depositor. . Already hundreds of depositors come to the bank regularly with a part of their earnings saved in pursuance of this plan. You may style it, if you please, the Common' Sense Savings System.

Kditor, Times: Having rcc?ntly been present with several others at a post-mortem on condemned cows, I want to ask Dr. DcFossett or any of his worthy subordinates a feWqucs tions. It so happened that there were in this herd three that were called reactors. The owner, not betieviiia that any of the three showed proper reaction! insisted upon slaughter on the premises. Now, let 'me say right here that not a trace of tuberculosis was found in the first two. And as to the other, it was thought best not to kill her.--Parts were taken from each pi the slaughtered animals by the vet erinary himself and were sent by the owner' to Washington to the bureau of animal industry, und reported back free from tubercule bacilli. Now, li not the owner entitled to full value for is tells us that tuberculin is worthless to trace tuberculosis. That man's name is John B. Frazer, of Toronto. He has no axe to grind, but speaks as he knows and believes. Let us sincerely hope that Ooverhor eleet Proctor will do as he advocate in his campaign literature and cut this appropriation, and cut it to one' dol lar. . F. B.

There is no doubt, of course, that the Montpeiier ministers who have offerej their services to the sUtc tj art u c'laplains during the legislative session free of charge are impelled by- the highest, motives, even if the actual impetus to the move did come from the outside. It is doubtful, however, if the legislature will accept the offer, and The Messenger believes it should le declined. There have been offer of free service in previous years, but neith er branch of the general assembly Jias felt ft compatible with it dignity to accept. Tiie chaplaincy is an office jjign ity and the state has not asked charity in this regard Itefore. The only argu ment in favor of the plan is that it will save money, but those at all acquainted with legislative procedure kioW full well that if the olfer were accepted, some one at the close of the session: would intrvwluce a resolution giving a in Now, the Ceterinary who conducted this test made the trip through this entire herd of twenty without once disinfecting his needle used to make the insertion. Is that alone not enough to spread disease? Each of these eondepined animal had passed five or more clean test. That bein2 the case, what nro're are you making to eradicate this dis ease? Now, during this post-mortem I asked the veterinary if he ever found a case where it affected the milk. The reply was "No; we are not testing to improve the milk, but to eradicate the disease." Now, if that is the case, why does Barre require milk from tested cows only? By any such ordi nance I believe you are raising the price of milk without improving the quality. If you get the milk deliv ered to you as free front bacteria as the cow .give it, you will be better off than to have the cows tested and put up with all other contamination' which has been lost sight of in this craze of testing. Now, then, how long do you expect farmers are going to let this go on takiiiir , their be-t them 6. K. paying choose to pay for them? In direct contrast to what this veterinary stated, a local veterinary addressed a meeting he'd in Barre, and tells you how milk has been safe by testing cows with tuberculin. Jt mere were more veterinaries, there would be more theories. How far would you lt in a court with one veterinary making one statement and another contradicting? Mv idea is that there is more disease ami far more danger in the mind of certain of our veterinaries than there can be found in the cows, and the germ is located in their pocketbook. I-et us have a dcmmi.tration that will sbnw the facts. Let the -tale of Vermont buy 8 herd of accredited cows and slaughter them, and let the tax payers lie represented there and see if thee are l! clean, or if they are worse than herds that have never been; tented. The moit eminent doctor in Canada will be recognized, so that communities where nirus are disap pearing measures will be taken for their propagation. Boston Globe. Frank S. Streeter.
