Foot School St f wnu can not helu but admire the everlasting persistency of the federal courts of the United States. State courts Ireouently appear to possess short memories but their big brother of the national government neither forgets or stops. The Luneaburgh man who was charged with shipping watered milk into the state of New Hampshire thirteen years ago prob ably hasn't been worrying much about the alleged offence ot late but a deputy marshal hit his trail during the present week. That shipment of 400 riot guns and 20,000 rounds of ammunition from the Vermont date arsenal to Hoston ia a rather strong intimation that law and order at the Massachusetts capital is to have backing stronger than words, if needed. The gnns are the cylinder bored "pumps" with which the home guard was equipped during thq war. With the magazines filled with 12 giuige cartridges, twelve buskshot to the cartridge, and in the hand$ of men who know how to ubg tbem, these weapons would constitute an argument capable of phazing almost any mob of era p-shoo Ling hoodlums. Remember that the Judge Alton 15. Parker touched the right key in his recent speech in .Man chester, England, when he said, "Na tions can, if they will, settle their dif ferences either through diplomacy or arbitration." War is no more neces sary than disease. It is much more easily avoided "if they will." This re fers to both parties to a dispute; and there is the rub when one of the par ties believes he is the stronger, or in some other wayha8theadvantaKe.lt Is 'easy to look back and see where the differences which served as ex cuses for starting the recent war might easily have been settled by di plomacy or arbitration if all the .par- (ties involved had wanted them settled j by that method. A terrible war may have taught the lesson; but subse iquent events are not proving thai has done so. 1 The motor runs far and' true on a rilling of So-CO-ny Gasoline.

STANDARD ; While there will be no ruffed 'grouse shooting in Vermont during , the fall season because of the ban en t acted by the legislature and not many woodcock will be killed be cause of tho restrictions ot the migra tony bird law, men and boys will tin doubtedly take their guns into th woods as they have been accustomed since the days of the early settlers, Grouse and woodcock constitute about all of the upland gamo birds to be found in this state and with uoth under protection of the law therp will come the temptation to "try the gun" on some of the other feathered inhabitants of the woods and covers, The laws of this state expressly pro hibit the killing of all wild birds with the exception of a few predatory species and this fact should tie borne in mind by every boy or man" who goes afield during the hunting season The birds are toa valuable to be usefl for targets. : : . Not many months ago tho Hartford Building association was organized for the purpose of meeting the hou.4 ing situation in,. the village of Whte River Junction. White River June tion, liko every other community that is not positively dormant, is short of houses. The association was organl zed with the understanding that the incorporators could not expect to do rive a direct profit from their money wJitfii was Invested with the laudable nuntose of making it possible for more people to live at White River Junction. The association not long ago began the construction of live six-room houses with bath which 'it planned to have ready for occupancy in December. So far only the foun dations have been completed, but the association is already receiving In qdiries from prospective purchasers, liven at the present cost of materials and the high wages received by car penters it is more than probable that a unit of five or more houses similar to those beirus built at White River Junction could bo constructed in this village and sold for a sufficient profit to pay interest on the investment for the period that the capital was tied up. The Bennington Haifner, predicts that tho North Adauii'-HenningtMi branch oj the Berkshire Street Rail way system will have na trolley . car service until next sprint, and possi bly not then.

The situation cannot fail to bo regretta ble all around. The line is well constructed and amply equipped. It afforded residents of Bennington and a large territory in southern ermont a short out to Boston and Massachusetts cities generally. The instance is simply one of many throughout the country where elec tric railways art hard put to it in these days of increasing wages, high er cost of materials and stiffer com petition from automobiles Rutland News. Jt is more than probable that the compel ion of the automobiles has been the larger factor in reducing the net income of the trolly roads. The problems of higher wages and increas ed cost, of materials could have been met with a corresponding raise in fares. People are paying more for everything else and they would ex pect transportation to cost more than it did throe years ago. What the trolley.- roads have, lout is business and the loss is due to the competition of the automobile, Any person who can afford time and money to ride for pleasure owns a car. About all the business that is left for the trollys is the industrial end, tho carrying of employes to and from their work. This provides busines during not nuicli, juore. than two hours morning and night and during tho remainder of the day the'rouda are carrying fey passengers. It is a problem that must be solved-somehow. The trollys are absolutely necessary to the industry of the country, -What tho solution to bo no ono just now appears able to say. - Getting Over the Difficulty, Two little boys, James, 5, and' Alex., 4, went to their aunt's, house and she had always given them some? i thing to eat.
