Executive Ability Recognized
(Barre Times)
The election of Prof. George E.
Howes of Williams College to be
dean of the college is recognition of
executive ability of a pronounced
sort. While at the head of the de
partment of Greek in the University
of Vermont, Prof. Howes was called
upon to conduct duties requiring tact
.and discernment, and he performed
those duties satisfactorily, so satis
factorily that there was quite a
general regret that he accepted a
cali to become a professor in Willi
ams College. There is no doubt that
Prof. Howes will be successful in
carryirig out the duties of dean of
Williams college.

troops. While holding this office the
troops once attcmpted to mutiny, but
Capt. Montgomery soon showed the
stufi he was made of and quelled the
disturbance. After five years and two
days of continuous service he was
discharged at Galveston, Texas, May
17, 186C. He was in ali the battles
of the Third regiment for two and
onehalf years, and in two engage
ments with the Tenth colored regi
ment. Mr. Montgomery served many
years ago on the school committee,
when Summerville was a separate
school district, and always took an
active interest in town and village
afTairs. He was a familiar figure at
the municipal ' meetings and often
toòk an important part in the busi
ness of the session. He has long
been identified with the South church
and was for some years the teacher
of the men's class. He was a member
of Chamberlin Post, No. X, G. A. R.
- and at one time the Post Commander.
Mi'. Montgomery married in 1873
Miss Flora Sibiey of Laconia, N. IL,
who died in 1909. He leaves one
daughter, Grace, wife of George Gib
bons, of St. Johnsbury. The funeral
will be held at his late residence No.
9 Harrison Ave., Saturda'y afternoon
at 2 o'clock and it is expected his pas
tor, Rev. Dr. F. A. Poole, will officiate.

No More Guess and Gamble in Trucking Costs
Packard Figures Based Upon Severest Service

lT does it mean when thirty cities
report demands for more housing con
struction and- increased industriai
building? What does it mean when memfcers of
the National Àssociation of Builder's Exchanges
promise to "attempt to carry on building ali wintcr
regardless of weather conditions"?
It means that if demands and plans are carried
out, motor trucks must db their bit. ,
And motor truck users must know how big a
bit they can do when cold is extreme and going
is hard.
Winter building has always been more or lese
a gamble with the contractor. A man cannot
work a system when the weather deals the cards.
In winters gone by, transportation has fallen
down first. Materials were delivered behind
schedule or not at ali expensive workmen were
forced to slow down costs were increased ao
Replacement of horses by motor trucks helped
to an extent. But reliable figures on winter motor
truck performance have been hard to obtain.
Consistent figures have been even harder.
Now the gamble is being taken out of winter
hauling by Packard transportation figures.
Records of Packard trucks during last winter
and the winter before are available.
Many of these trucks did not lose a trip or a
miriute's time during the winter.
Gasoline and oil consumption and repairs ruti
at the same low average that Packard owners
expect to find
Average loads were hauled, even where they
consisted of cement or gravel or other materiate
whose weight and bulk increased where wet or
Trailers and special dumping and loading equip
ment were kept in use according to schedule.
Packard transportation figures and Packard
trucks necessarily go together.
For it is the extra margin of strength and stam
ina that enables the Packard to meet the emer
gency when it comes.
And it is that same margin that extra factor
of safety which has kept Packard trucks in con
tinuous service, some of them over ten years. We
have yet to hear ofia Packard truck going out
of active service. 0

Many St. Johnsbury people are us
ing simple glycerine, buckthorn bark,
etc, as mixed in Adler-i-ka. This
fiushes BOTH upper and lower bowel
so completely it removes ali foul, ac
cumulated poisóns from alimentary
canal and prevents appendicitis.
Adler-i-ka relieves ANY CASE gas

CURES constipation. In one case of

produced wonderful results. W. B.
