Increase of deposits since January 1, 1899, over $100,000.00. Some of its Special Features: The Lamoille County Savings Bank and Trust Company takes care of home interests. It always has money to loan to the people of Lamoille County, and of sueh portions of adjacent counties as constitute a legitimate field for the investments of this Bank. It has never for one moment deviated from this line of action, and no panic or stringency has ever been so severe as to compel its managers to decline a Lamoille County loan if good, and coming within the rules of the Bank and the law. It acts as an intermediary between Vermonters who have money to loan and Vermonters who wish to borrow. It will continue in the future as in the past, a painstaking, careful, conserv ative steward in the investment and management of the funds of the people entrusted to its care. Safety, rather than high rates of interest, has ever been its motto. Because of the foregoing facts, it asks your patronage, whether -you wish to borrew or lend. TEN UNIQUE CLAIMS.

The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears In Use For Over Thirty Years THE CKNTAUfl COMPANY, NCW VOWK CITY. SignaturyJJ Some Wild Birds. A most extraordinary instance of the tatneness of birds in unexplored forests is related by a writer in The Naticnal Geographic Magazine, describing a tour of expiration to the headwaters of the Saskatchewan : As onr horses were winding through a deep forest a bird appeared which re sembled a pine bullfinch flitting from tree to tree and following us closely. Somewhat later it gave the most re markable instance of tatneness that I have ever seen. Having followed us for about two miles, it waited in a tree during the bustle and confusion of making camp, but in the afternoon, when all was quiet and some of our men were asleep, the bird became ex ceedingly familiar, walking on the ground near us and finally perching on onr extended hands. It was soon evident that the object of our visitor was to catch mosquitoes, which were hovering in swarms around our heads. It pecked at a ring on my hand, at onr needles, and, in fact, any metal article. But the climax was reached when by accident the bird saw its own image in a small looking glass which lay on the ground. Then, with extended wings and open bill, it ut tered cries of rage and pecked madly at the glass in which an enemy appeared. Among the solitudes of mountain for ests squirrels, finches and whiekyjacks often show unusual confidence in man, but this particular instance is remark able, because the bird "would alight cn our persons even after it had been mo mentarily, though gently, detained sev eral times as a prisoner in my hand. ' All More or Less Actorn. We are all more or less actors and are governed by a reputation which has been given us. justly or unjustly. For instance, a girl is brusque. Some kind friend characterizes this brusqueness as frankness or honesty. The girl is pleased with the name which has been given her, her brusqueness under the guise of frankness increases, and she finally be comes a terror to , her friends unknow ingly. Then some one remarks: "How sweet Ethel is I She has the loveliest charac ter and sweetest disposition of any girl I know. " Ethel must live np to her reputation for sweetness until this very sweetness becomes annoying. The man who has been dubbed a philanthropist is unwittingly more gen erous than he would naturally be, as he must live up to the good name he has received. So how much is real in our lives and how much assumed we hardly know ourselves. New York Herald. The Leech. The medicative leech is now prac tically a thing of the past. The falling Dff in the demand for leeches by the medical profession is quite astonishing, as may be judged from the fact that in the year 1845 the two largest hospitals in London called for abuut 50,000 of them, whereas now these institutions order only 50 or 100 leeches a irreg ular and infrequent intervals. Assuredly the leech has seen his best days. With the old regime, when "cup ping" and "bleeding" were the sheet anchors of surgery, the leech all but 3isappeared So constant was his em ployment in mediaeval times that his ranie furnished a synonym for the medical profession and the doctor came to be known impolitely as "the leech" perhaps a subtle allusion to the" rapacity'fur fees which character ized the profession in those times. At present the Hungarian speckled leech is most in request. ArtilU-in! Dream. Psychologists have undertaken the scientific study of dreams. When the olfactory sense of a sleeper is stimu lated by an odor, such as thut of helio trope, not only does he dream of "smell ing violets," but visual images of flow ers appear to him. If the experiment is prolonged, the dream visions become complex and filled with strange im agery. A vibrating tuning fork held tear a sleeper's ear made him dream of a lion roaring, and when a little salt and water was put on his tongue he dream ed that he was eating olives. lirave Explorers , Like Stanley and Livingstone, found it harder to overcome Malaria, Fever and Ague, and Typhoid dis ease perms than hmvhkh cannibal; but thousands have found that E!ec trie Bitters is a wonderlul cure f jr all mala ial dUeawn.

Darnell, Druggist. Small Farms JMoxt I'rofltttble. The profits from a farm do not de pend entirely upon the area of laDd cultivated, but upon the method and management. Some one who made a comparison claimed that a f irm of only two acres, under kUhs, gnv a larger froflt than a farm of 1000 acres. This may be tru or not. but the fact remains taut a small firm that is properly managed, and whiuh is made to produce the crops that sell the highest, will give better re turns than a.larger farm that is de moted to wheat, corn, outs and pota t es exclusively, but the market lo cation must also be considered.

It is hard to tell at first glance to what language this word belongs. It is French and has been adopted in Paris to describe the custom now universal of drinking tea at five o'clock. There are many people who can not be comfortable without their five o'clock tea. There are many people who, after they take after noon tea are not, even then, com fortable. The reason for this is that they do not buy 4he. right sort of tea. They are not careful enough in regard to the quality and purity of the article which they procure. Whoever would enjoy their " five, o'clocker" must be sure that the right quality has been procured. Chase & Sanborn's package teas come from tea gardens famous the world over for the highest qual ity. They are the Koh-i-Noor, an English Breakfast Tea, delicious and invigorating. Orloff, a Formosa Oolong, is gently stimulating, and their Orange Pekoe, a Ceylon and India Tea, with rich wine-like body, is found refreshing. Whichever one of these kinds you choose, you will find you have chosen well. They all come in pound and half pound air tight leaded forms. One pound makes over 200 cups.

They are very destructive to the young birds. Rub their heiie with, BWtet oil or lard. Never over-feed. Give your fowl what they will eat-up clean and no more. Rather have them lookicg for more than give them toi much. Farmers should breed for increasing the egg yield and the size of fowl rather than for feathers or shape; leave that for the fancier. Exchange. Clean up the poultry house. Th9 Poultry Monthly suggests that a couple of inches of the dirt be taken out, and freeh dirt supplied. Good suggestion. Feed all the chicks all they will eat up clean and feed often, ee they should be crowded forward ee much as possi ble. The farmer who take3 such gcod care of his horses, cows and hogs, and leta his poultry shift for themse.ves needs a little enlightenment on the subject of rearing poultry. Some one has said that a d'irty egg; is a disgrace to the shipper and that a salted egg is disgusting to the re ceiver. Salt will keep eggs in a way, but it will not keep them fresh. Western broilers are not proving satisfactory this year and the eastern grower has the advantage provided he improves the quality. A little extra care and feeding will settle the quet tion. Don't think you are saving money by feeding on poor grain. This Is the wildest folly, as it is the nutriment in, the tood which telle the story of worth. Poor or unsound food will demoralize any flock and empty any man's pocket. Moulting is a serious process, for it Is such a drain that the hen is liable to catch cold or contract other diseas es. The moulting hen may grow fat, because the feathers require very little carbon, and may yet be weak. Do not dispose of the early moulting hen for she will be the earliest layer. The digestion of a chick is not weak but strong, if the food is suitable. Same think that brooder chicks ar more liable to bowel troubles than are chicks with the hen; if they are given a very little or no water until they are four weeks "otd they will likely escape this trouble. Chicks are not all alike, and what may prove god feed for. 6ome may not prove good for others. It is often a matter of surprise that when the work 'f hatching for the year is over, poultry keepers do not start a few broods simply to furnish meat for the home table. We talk of economy in production, the small mar gin of profit, the incieised cost of liv ing, all of which is true, but at the same time we forget to take notice of the opportunities at hand to reduce the cost, add to the margin and find the economy by growing more of the home table products, especially the meat and fruit, and the meat prduct easiest to produce is the pou'.try. It is impossible to waJk through the markets at any time without seeing large quantities of extremely poor tur keys, towl and chickens. It is seldom that one sees a poorly-fattened hog la the market. If it pays to stuff with corn a hog that won't net his feeder, five cents a pound dressed, why isn't it g od business sense to use some of that corn to fat en a bird that will bring twice as much per pound? Will the same co.n make twice as many pounds of pork as poultry? If not. it would seem wiser to .put t".;e corn where it will do the moat go d. Rural New Yorker. ' We met lately a grower of ducks who was attempting the bu.-nes-i for the first time and flnling lots "f fault because it cost so much to feed and1 they were not fattening. On inquiry, we found they had a free run over the farm, access to water, and had lived beyond the pr' fit eha.-ing age. It is not. easy to learn the ora-time habits, and practices may not suffice to-day, that ducks to be grown at a profit must be forced for the market, that this forcing means confinement, restraint and plenty to eat, that no water can be allowed save for drinking and that the birds must go to market before the feathers start, 'before they are twelve weks old. He who grows in any oth er way will find loss instead of gain, but the poor ducks should not be blamed. Itonp. The most difficult poultry disease to control Is roup, and its destructive and far reaching influence is not lealized. A writer in an exchange states that he has killed a large number of hens and pullets which had the roup, and exam ined the ovaries, and in nearly every instance the small eggs were diseased, many of them being simply little, hard, black, reddish lumps, varying from the size of a pin's head up to a large cherry, but all destroyed. Hens with bright red combs and laying would suddenly die in midsummer. Those we killed would be in the same condition, all having the ovaries more or less diseased. "I visited brc:ders, saw their stork, examined stock that was lying, and both cocks and hens had the roup. I bought eggs, hatched and raised the chicks, and those chicks never failed to develop roup when cold weather came. In every Instance where I have raised chicks, or had them raised else where, from eggs laid by roup fowl or fowl which had been cured, apparently, the roup would break out In the fall among the chicks. 1 have tried this four seasons, and that is all I want' of It. Any person who will go at it sys-t tematica'ily will be forced to reach the same conclusion." Have you killed ff the surplus ole hens? If not, and there are any which, have not commenced to moult, get them on the market at once. If not over fat, they will sell at good prices, if the feathers have commenced to drop, let them al-ne, for the pin feathers will give no end of trouble. Grass Is the greatest developer ol bonce and muscle in .plgs. It is cheap and plentiful, and a clover pasture should be furuWaed every herd of hogs. Clover pasture ad hog cholera rarely ere found on the same farm. 'I
