We believe that there has been no place where modern merchandising is so far behind as in the shoe business. Not that the business has paid an excessive profit, but that in the process of transfer, from the maker to the consumer, so much of expense has been added, as to make the wearer pay more than he should for his shoes. We have determined to change this by removing every unnecessary item of expense in handling and all micTdlemen and giving these goods direct from the factory to consumer. We expect, by so doing, to be able to make a price so low that our business will double at once and that we shall, in consequence, reduce the expense of handling in our stores to a large extent, as a large business is handled at a very little more expense than a small one. This is not a hasty move on our part, but is the result of long study along these lines. We have decided for greater convenience and facility of selling, to put the great variety of styles that we have carried in the past, into four great uniform lines, viz: $i.ii, $i.88, $2.22, $3.33. THE $l.ll LINE TO BE KNOWN AS THE "WON-ELEVEN" GRADE THE $2.22 LINE TO BE KNOWN AS THE "MONADNOCK" GRADE THE $1.88 LINE TO BE KNOWN AS THE "STANDWEAR" GRADE THE $3.33 LINE TO BE KNOWN AS THE "CUSTOM" GRADE $1.11 (Won-eleven Grade.)

We euaranteo tliat no shoe ln thls llno ls ever sold at ! than $1.23 and many of them aro sold ti- good values at $1.60 to $1.75. Our factor man tells us some of these -iinos actually cost moro than we ask f"r them, but ln accordance with our tem they make us so many cases of '"li klnd, so as to enahle us to offer j'u' customers at a uniform prlce of $1.11.

Three of the strongest individunlltles In Brat tleboro, and cnch of a pecullar typo, have gone over tho great dlvldo In llttlt' more than a year. ! Vermont people liavo been bo buslly engaged In diseussing license and no lleense llquor laws tho past year that Vhey have forgotton to say anythlng about temperance. Now that they have been lellevcd of the nialn re sioiisll)lllty for the cnforccmont of the law lt wotild be a good plan for prohlbltionistb to devotc somo encrgy to the promotion of temperance along tlie llnes of ralional appeals and ln struelion. The Insurance Press flgures that a grand total of $320,109,382 was "pald on polleles last year In the Unlted States and C'anada by Hfe Insurance eompanles. The total dlstributed In Vermont was $1,430,478. By far the largest amount whlch came to any town fn the state was paid In Brattle boro, $230,431, these cxceptlonal llg ures belng aecounted for In large part by the policies hcld by Gen. J. ,T. Es tey, aggregating $160,000. Mr. Cleveland, ln hls speech at St. ! Louls. touched upon a curlons but al most forgotten fact of hlstory: we owe the possession of the vast tract ac fiUlred as the Loulsiana purchase to the circumstance that Franre was at war wlth Santo Domlngo. whlch sho wns flndlng it dltTlcult, and eventually found it impossible, to conquer. It Is an aniazing rellectlon that 100 years ago .NaiKileon deomefl wliat Is now the despised Island of Haytl of moro value than the territory of flfteen of our cominonwfnlths. The Hutland Herald calls the at t'ention of llquor dealers to the seo tlon of the license law whlch provldes for a flne of not less than $100 or imprisonmpnt of not less than three nor more than six months for tho per- , son who ls convlcted of fcoliclting or ders for the salc of llquor in towns which voted no license. The Herald is of the opinlon tliat if a licensed dealer sends clrculaars into "no" j towns, Boliciting ordera for tlie salo I of liquors, hls license and hls llberty 1 te Ir perti; The lncal option test of the license , law In New Hampshlre towns will take place May 12, next Tuesday.

The Country Physician. The personal loss whlch comes in the deatli of a beloved friend is ac centnated ln many homes in Brattle- ' boro by the thoufiht that tho good physician wlll be seen no more, that i Dr. James Conland, upon whom so many of us depended in the hours of anxlety and sufferlng, has finished hls work and gone to hls reward. Naturo endowed hlm with a strong physlque, but he was so unsparing of hlmself in ! hls dutles to others that he llterally wore himself out, and ended hls days ln what seemlngly ought to have been the very prime of his mattire man- ' hood. Hls wab' a strong, virile, but at traetlve nnd gentlo personality. In thls day of the praise of speclal ists let us not forget the helpful, self sacriftcing and noble work whlch the all-around country physician Is do ing. Day and nlght he must hold him self ready to go. forth ln all conditions of weather, frequently for long, try ing drives over the hills, to answer the calls for help. Giving words of counsei, and sympathy, alleviating suffering, made a repository for fam lly secrets, seeing the seamy side of Hfe, struggling with the probloms of life and death. the reward of the country doctor from a tlnanclal standpolnt is not eommensuratc with his labor, but, to the physician llke Dr. Conland. who was true to tho highest elhics of his profession in hls practlce, there was the approval of the conscience ln a life spent in useful ness, ln hclpfnlness and ln the ser vlce of others. and in having won the respect, confidence and love of those for whom he labored. , ln the case of Dr. Conland this ideal profes-sional life was simply ono side in the dovelopment of a strong, full, well-rounded nature. Hls interests and his sympathics were bounded by no lines of sect or race or creed. He was so broadly tolerant and appreci ative, and he had such a genulne 11k Ing for human kind, that all men wlth whom he was brought in contact rec ognized ln him a friend, a companion and a brother. lt is because he was the good country doctor, and because he was so genuinely human, that so many men and womon In Brattleboro and on the hills and in the valleys of all the towns around feel that in Dr. Conland's death they have lost a dear personal friond. Dr. Conland's Monument. It is an admirable suggestlon whlch Is made in our eolumns today by Gov. Holbrook, nnd by several other per sonal friends of Dr. Conland that of placing on the doctor's grave as tho tribute of his friends a rugged boulder from tho hills he loved. to be his mon ument. We believe thls sugges tlon will meet lnstant approval, and that the response wlll be prompt nnd general. We hopo the fund wlll rep resent not alone the contributions of those who wish to glve the dollar namcd as the maxlmum individual sum, but the dlmcs and nikols of the great company of those hundreds of others who thought of Dr. Conland as thelr friend in time of need. In ac cordance with the suggestion made, a book has been opened at The Phce nlx ofllco, where all contributions sent or Ieft wlll be entcrel and dulx aecounted for. Cleveland. To be or not to be is a questlon which is now whirllng around ex- 1 Presldent Grover Cleveland. When in- ! terviowcd to determine whether h will be a candidnte for presidential nomination ho studiously avoids giv ing a direct answer. It was a curlous colncidence, or perhaps some would , say a eonspiracy, that he should have been recelved with a great popular demonstration of approval upon his appearance at the dedicatlon of the World's Fair grounds at St, Louls, and that at tho same time such wlly pol- 1 lticians as ex-United States Senator Siulth of Now Jersey, aud Norman W. Mack of Buffalo, Democratlc state commltteeraan from New Vork, should decluro for hlm as tho Moses to lead the party out of tho wilderness, while the Brooklyn Kagle, New York World, Now Vork Herald and other papers camo out, clamoring for hlm as the one available Democratlc candidatc. Cleveland's admlrers claim to seo in hlm tlie only man who would have a . llghtlng chance agalnst Roosevelt. lt Is ovidont thut freo sllver and Bryan isra wlll drop out of the comlng cam- , paign, although Brynn's slogan is stlll no surrende nnd he goes out of hls way to nssnll Mr. Clovoland at every . opportunlty.

The be loved physician, he has ever held 1 himself ready at call at all hours of , day or night, in all weathers, wlthout regard to hls own health or comfort. Ho has been called In consultatlon from far and near, hls judgment and opinlon theroln commanding respect. Now it secms to me, and I desire to suggest to the cltizens of Brattleboro, that a lasting memorlal to hlt worth as a man and citlzen might be gra ciously recorded on the modest monu ment, procured and erectel over his grave by thoir combined action. Will The Phcenlx, or someone, et the work ln motlon whereby cltizens -will com bine to porfect a method for accom plishlng what seems to me to he so laudable and worthy a purpose? Truly yours, PREDERICK HOLBROOK. ' Nothlng would be more flt to mark Doctor Conland's grave than a rug ged cropping-out boulder.
