To setup your own standard of right and wrong and judge people accordingly. 2. To measure the enjoyment of others by our own. 3. To expectuniformity of opinion in this world. 4.

Morrisville, Vt. Dear Sir: One coat of Devoe is bet ter than two of mixed paint. The American House at Tanners ville (Catskill Mts.), N. Y.,Chas. L Wiltse, had two coats of Mixed Paint five years ago; last spring had two more coats of the same. Owner was going to use Devoe but got his mixed paint a few cents less Right across the street. Charles Haner painted one coat of Devoe at the same time last spring. The Haner house ia the better job but wait five years. The point of the story is that Wilt se is sorry already. He has learned something that not one man in thousand knows that a gallon of one kind of paint can contain twice as much paint as a gallon of another kind of paint. You can't afford to put on another paint even if you have it given to you. At the same time, you see, that Mixed Paint appears to have worn five years give the devil his due. Yours truly, 23 F. W.

Thoreau n joiced when it rained because he knew his beans were happy. One day my man was agitated because the wookchucks were eating the beans. He would go to town at once and buy a gun. I asked him how many beans the woodchucks would probab ly destroy. He thought from one eight to one-quarter of an acre. Now, one-quarter 01 an acre 01 Held beans should bring me a net cash return of three or four dollars. I told him that he could not buy a gun for that money. If he bad a gun, he would waste more time killing the wood- chucks than the beans would be worth. But the worst part of it would be that he would kill the wood- chucks, and at daylight morning af ter morning 1 had watched the ani mals as they stole from the bushes, sniffed the soft morning air, and nib bled the crips young leaves. Many a time 1 had spent twice four dollars for less entertainment. My neighbor thought that I ought to cut out the briers in the fence corner.

BLODGETT SPECIAL AGENT Morrisville, - Vermont LOCAL OPTION. Therolumnsof the News and Cm ze. are alwaysopenforthediussion of anything that is of public interest. We wish our readers to have full in formation upon any topic of special importance and therefore we give herewith an article in which the evils of local option ai e Bet forth : Some of our fellow-citizens wnnr to change the existing statute of Ver mont and substitute for it a Local Option License Law. The "Local Option " is, to some minds, an entic ing caption. It implies that the people may have, want-to have and ought to have, a chance to decide whether they would like to have plucfs in their midst open for all "who would to satiate their appetites for drink. Some of them think that it is a hardship that the "self-respecting," as they think themselves to be, cannot have the privilege to drink if they want to. They do not think of those whose appetite is already. a cultivated power and to whom there ought not to be an open temptation in the community ; nor do they think of that other class, the young and uninitiated, to whom surely there ought not to be allowed any alluring temptations. Nor do they think, Christians tho' they be, even of a high official sort, to whom it is be coming that they Bhould give an ex ample of the Christ virtue of self-denial, even unto death, if need be, as their Master and Lord did, in things pertaining to the flesh and to the spirit. Furthermore I say they do not seem to regard it of any special i It. . 1 f ll 1 ill ujuuituuuc tuai, in iud iulcicol u. morals in the community or state, there should be no legal approval of institutions out of which it Is admit-1 ted evil m large proportions come. M - The question of local option should be considered from the broadest and deepest Christian principles by Chris tian people and Christian representa tives and leaders. As lor those who are outside of that category, they may consider the question from the basis of natural laws and natural morality, if they desire, and we would join tbem there in iseueorin harmony as the case might be. But for Chris tian men it would seem that they might consider the question from the principles of Christ, whom they pro fess to follow and whom they ac knowledge as absolute authority in all realms of principles and conduct. The question indeed, admits of dis cussion on the rock principle ot right. If there be such a principle it is al most folly to dabble with mere ex pediences. Ia it right for a Christian people, or for citizens outside of all Christian consideration, to license liquor traffic? The question will never be settled as a permanent fact of civilatlon until that Question of right is settled. I am ol tCtifc t" W people, remember when soraemenSvRt?wTyouVli slavery was right. We could not readily find men who would so reason to-day. Is it not possible that the time will come when men will as uni versally see that it is not right to li cense the liquor traffic? I for one be lieve so. The question may be stated in form of logic, dangerous as it is to put questions in that form. The liquor traffic is a benefit to the state. lue state nas a ngnt to approve whatever is of benefit. Therefore the state has a right to license the liquor traffic! But suppose it be shown that great evils are always in cident to the state in the liquor traffic, has it then a right to license it? Or, to take the matter in another way. If the Lquor traffic is a benefit to the Btate why should the state license it at all ? If it is a benefit why put any restictions upon it? Why not foster it, give it bounties even to make its benefits larger? Now, is the liquor traffic an educationul, a moral, a financial, a religious benefit to the state? Has anybody yet written a book to prove it so? Mnn did write books and used the Bible as a support of their argument in favor of the Tightness, even the divine right, of slavery. Why can't the liquor traffic get some Doctor of Di vinity or some Bishop to do a simi lar service for it? If the liquor traffic has a right to be it has a right to be at least free and on equality with all other sorts of business. If I believed as some of my fellow citizens seem to do, I would tight for the freedom of the liquor traffic from all restraints. If on the other hand the liquor traffic, in the form of licensed saloon, or licensed sale for any use other than medicinal, chemical or sacra mental, is a source of eyil, then it ought not to be allowed and theetate ought not to secure any profits from it by fees, by fines or otherwise. Surely all will assent to the proposi tion that tne etate ought not to put restriction on a beneficial traffic, nor share in the profits of an evil traffic, lest in either case the etate itself be immoral. It must also in a Republic be assumed that the people will not approve of a traffic which is, in any measure, in the nature of the traffic, an linury to tnemseives. T . I . .... ic may aiso oe assumed tnat a state ought not to be divided in its policies, some sections for and some sections against. A divided state makes friction, especially where in subjoining towns different policies are adopted, and such is the case where Local Option prevails. It is far better that one policy should pre vail throughout the state, either all the state for the present law, with amendments if needed, or all for the law for free traffic. 1 here is no mid die ground of righteousness. 11."

VALUE OF THE LOCAL PAPER TO A COMMUNITY. FHU r Demand Thnt Cannot Be Sup plied In Any Other Wayflow the I'cople Can Help It Along Ilenefita of Ad vertUinK. Some time npo the editor of the Rich mond (Ind.) Enterprise published an article lu which are catalogued all the services of the local paper, coupled with Injunctions as to how to help the editor thereof In return for the paper's help. lie says: "The paper has done 50 things for you and is only anxious to do 50 more. "It told your friends when your par ents were married; It announced to the world whan you were born. "It recorded the great events of your childhood when you were lost as a wandering baby, when you had the measles and scarlet fever, when you fell into the wash tub and nearly drown ed, when you fell from the cherry tree and broke your collar bone, when you first started to school and when you earned your first prize. "Later on it told how yon had com pleted the studios of the district school and how eloquently you recited your graduating oration. "It told of your entering high school or academy. It told of your contests In baseball and tennis. It told of your departure for college or your first ven ture in business. "It told of your various visits back to the old home neighborhood, and it al ways wished you well in your greatest UUtlortlk ll" ..It blutcd modestiy about the first time you went a-courting and gave timely warning to 'her folks that the neighbors knew that matters were growing interesting over their way. "It announced the time of your ex pected wedding, and it published the notice of the marriage license and gave you a nice puff concerning the wedding ceremony. "It told of your extended honeymoon tour and of your settling down to housekeeping. "When you were sick, the home pa per week by week Informed your more distant neighbors of your lapses and Improvements. "It told about your lost cow and led to her recovery. It told how your horse had been stolen and led to the arrest of the thief. "When you were getting dull and tired through the monotony of your la bor, the paper urged that the people get up a celebration, and you were named as one of a suitable committee on arrangements. And when it was all over it gave you Just praise for the suc cess of the undertaking. ! "In numerous ways the paper has helped to put your name before the and you would never have had lucrative office or your houorable recognition from the community but for the kind aid of the local printer. "If you are a member of a Sunday school or society of any sort, that same paper publishes your announcements and the various proceedings of your meetings. "It tells the people much which you would like to hare known, but which modesty or necessity prevents you from telling. "If you and all your folks have been prosperous aud fortunate In your af fairs, the paper has boosted you all the way. If you have had misfortune, the paper asked for sympathy In your be half. "Thus the paper has rejoiced when you rejoiced aud wept when you wept. If you are a good citizen, the paper will always be your friend and will back you in your enterprises and will help to find you business frieuds. 'It tells you where to buy and where to sell. It tells of rogues to be avoided. "It tells vou of current prices and nrevents vou from being ciieateu anu swindled in a hundred ways. Finally, when you die, the paper will publish your obituary and will cover over your faults and will recite the story of your good deeds. All these things the local editor will cause his paper to do, but uo one else In the world will do them or can do them for you, even for love or money The city paper will tell you of the world, but It won't tell the world about you or yours. The outside paper Is stranger to your little world and Is not at all interested in Its Improvement, Yet your local paper does all this free of cost to you If you are willing to re ceive It In that way. However, for your sako, we hope you are too gener ous to accept so many unrequited fa vors and that you are willing to recip rocate the same. 1 "Ileln the editor. Be his friend, and he will prove his friendship to you. "Subscribe for his paper and pay for It regularly in advance and get your neighbors to do the same. "Send him the news. "Invite blm to your picnics and fam lly dinners, so that he can eat a square laVMil occasionally. "Don't call the ticket you give him to the church concert a deadhead.
