I KNOW ONE THING
If I vvere a woman, I wouldn't swelter
over a hot stove making bread, cakes
and cookies. I'd just call up Bendict's
store, and give him my order. Johnny
Gill's "Splendid" bread and "Berwick"
10 cent cakes are sure good.

Prospects for Prosperous Year.
Addltlona to Faculty and
Middlebury College will begin its HGth
year Thursday, September 23rd. The
opening exercises will be held in the
McCullough Gymnasium at 8:45 a. m.
The college will be present in a body,
the students sitting by classes, and the
public are invited. The opening address
will be made by President Thomas. The
first recitation will be held at 10:30 a. m.
The faculty haa been increased and
several changes have been made. Pro
fessoi Frank E. Howard, a graduate of
Clark University and recently of
Nebraska Wesleyan University, will
join Doctor Collins and Professor
McFarland in the department of Peda
gogy. Dr. Howard's specialty is edu
cational psychology. Professor Charles
St. Clair Wade will give courses in
romance languages, taking the inter
mediate work in French and introducing
courses in Spanish. Professor Wade
comes from Tufts College. In Chemis
try Mr. Arthur R. Davis, a graduate of
Wesleyan University, will assist Pro
fessors MacGilton and Voter. In three
departments, English, Chemistry, and
Pddagogy, Middlebury now has three
In addition to the three new instruct
ors, there are four changes in poaitions;
Miss Ross succeeding Miss Throop as
Dean of Women, Miss Graham taking
the place of Miss Spaulding in Home
Economics, Mr. E. N. Holmes of the
Springfield Training School having
charge of the department of Physical
Education in place of Mr. Fisher, and
Mr. Luther I. Bonney joining the de
partment of Mathematics in place of
Professor Cresse. The schedule which
will be submitted to the students on
Monday will be the largest ever offered
in Middlebury College.
While the formal opening will not
take place until Thursday, the college
will be a busy place from Monday on.
The faculty hold the first meeting of
the year Monday evening at 7:30.
Every student is required to register
for the year and the Registrars' office
will be open for this purpose Monday
morning. The advisers meet Monday
af ternoon and each day thereaf ter both
morning and afternoon. Mr, J. A.
Fletcher, treasurer, will establish his
offke in Warner Hall for the con-
.venience of the students.
Hillside Cottage is already occupied
with Seniors who are teaching in the"
High school and Hamlin Commons is
also open. Starr and Painter Halls
will be open tomorrow and Pearsons
and Battell Cottage next Tuesday.
In accordance with the tradition es-
tablished by Professor Howard, no fig
ures are given out as to the size of the
ineoming class, but it is evident that
the authorities are preparing for an in
creased enrollment. An unusual num
ber of students are expected to join the
upper classes and the prospect is that
fewer old students will drop out than in
some recent years.
Besides the new chapel and Hepburn
Hall under course of construction, the
most considerable addition to the plant
during the summer has been the com
pletion of the new grand stand. Dress
lng rooms and shower baths have been
installed and will be of great conven
ience during the football season.

SWIFTS BUY SCRANTON HOME.
Famous Scrnnton Estate on Lake
Champlain Passes to Middle
Mr. and Mrs. Charles May Swift of
Middlebury have acquired the large
house and extensive lands of Mr. Wal
ter A. Scranton in the town of Ferris
burg on Lake Champlain, known
as Woodbridge Hall. It is located
north of the mouth of Otter Creek and
south of Long Point and is one of the
most prominent points on the lake. The
site is one of the most beautiful in the
Champlain region, an extensive point
with sheer bluff rocks, beautifully
wooded, and opposite some of the wild
est and most romantic scenery in the
Adirondacks. The grounds include over
The house is large, built of light gray
stone, of beautiful lines and proportion.
There is a dock sufficient to accomodate
largejsteamers and anobservation house
built over the extreme point of the
bluff. There is a story that a sight-seer
passing up the lake noticed this little
structure and inquired, "Say, is that a
porte-cochere or an esprit-de-corps?"
It is understood that Mr. and Mrs.
Swift will further improve the estate.
A golf course will beconstructed. Prof.
P. N. Swett is now surveying the
grounds to lay out the course. Mr.
Scranton a year ago sold a portion of
the estate, some sixty acres, to Prof.
Byron S. Hurlbut, Dean of Harvard
College, a native of Shelburne, and this
is not included in the Swift purchase.
Mrs. Swift has recently fitted up the
Seymour-Battell house in this village
and her many friends here are much
pleased that she is bound by an additional
tie to this region. Mr. Swift has sold
his former home in Detroit, one of the
largest in that city, and will make his
future home in Vermont.
The consideration is not stated, but it
is reported that the house and grounds
cost the original owner considerably
more than $100,000.
