Still Greater Benefits Never was the power of this ; store in reducing the cost to the ! consumer so absolutely and com pletely thorough as now. Our policy to Bell cheaper as we sell more has been so indisputably evident throughout the store that new customers have been made daily. As the fact is indisputable that we are the largest dealers in our lines, so is the fact equally indis putable that our prices are lowest for reliable merchandise. Our prices are based on the market they are not ironclad. If prices decline during the week you get the benefit Send your orders right along any time. Thpr are other honest men hpsidpg ourselves, but vou cannot find a dealer who Will use you more fairly and honestly than we do all our customers. We don't expect any one to trade with us and pay us 10 per cent more for goods than they could be bought for elsewhere. Human nature is not built that way. But when we offer goods less than other dealers we thinkwe are entitled to a share of your patronage, rather than to use our prices as a lever to pull down the other man. We Refund Money Encourage us with your orders, in our work of furnishing the best roods at reasonable prices. We refund money cheerfully and quickly on all goods not entirely satisfactory. Credit Our charge system is for the convenience of responsible per sons wishing to run monthly accounts. Bills rendered the 1st of every month and payable before the 10th. Please bear in mind that we are here to serve you and that we expect to do everything possible to make your dealings with us more satisfactory.

Park Pollard was a power in the Legisla ture during the last two sessions, and generally his power was used for the good of the state and its tax-ridden citizens. The Standard has a very real respect and admiration for this leading member of th minority party. If you feel that the Republicans of Vermont are napping, since the primary, a Pollard hoped they would. and that he may be able to Bcale the breastwork and win election without real opposition, glance at page 10 of this paper and note the campaign which has been started by the State Committee and which will be taken up all over the state. Vermont Republicans are not asleep' on this issue. Ypu may read on (he next page of thia paper a quotation from the Brat- tleboro Reformer, In which that paper suggests s clear-cut division of the voters upon the Volstead issue, regardless of party, as follows: "In view of the line-up The Reformer believes it would be an excellent thing for the future of Vermont to make the forthcoming right along the definitely established lines above mentioned. This paper has no shadow of a doubt of the outcome; it is confident that an overwhelming majority of the voters of the state are on the dry side of the issue. But until that fact is definitely established by a clear-cut campaign the wet and dry question will be raised every time candidates come up for national office, and mediocre aspirants will frequently win merely because like Mr. Dale they are on that side of the liquor issue that the majority of the voters of the state insist upon their being." ' The Standard has no bricks to shy at Mr. Dale, but is thoroughly in ac cord with The Reformer in the belief that as between two candidates Vermont will not jhoose the "wet" one. John W. Redmond of Newport, de feated "wet" candidate for the Senate, is quoted as saying that it is a "shame" that the wet issue was injected into the campaign; which might be inter preted as meaning that he feels that the wet issue contributed to his defeat. Mr. Redmond is recognized as a strong man and of senatorial calibre. If he does feel that way, his conclusion is not without logic. What if certain of us desire our occasional glass of beer or ale or wine, desire to enjoy it legally, frank ly, respectably, and believe ourselves entitled so to use it, as an "inalienable right" under a government of personal liberty as framed by our wise forefathers? The fact remains that this government stands or falls, in the last analysis, upon the rule of the majority; and laying prejudice aside, It is perfectly evident that a large major ity of Vermonters, as well as of citi zens in other states, are emphatically in favor of the Eighteenth Amendment and a law substantially like the present one for its enforcement. The majority has got what it wants, and the majority intends to keep it. Undoubtedly it will be kept, at least for some years to come. The result of the primary a few- days ago is pretty conclusive evidence of the attitude of Vermonters on that ssue, and the issue was thoroughly fought out. If Park Pollard at the November election ran poll a large a vote as was cast against the dty candi-1 date this month, It will be a very re markable tribute to hi personal pop-: ulanty. The prospect are that he will fall considerably short of It be-! cause the verdict has already been pro-, nounced the issue i not pending in this state at this time; and there are other problems of importance which are alive and are pending for the Immediate future. Therefore, a vote cast for Pollard in November i ballot tossed to the junk heap. Vermont is the home ttate of the Republican president. Calvin Coolidge; and Vermont Republicans will be inclined to rally strongly to the support of hi policies, which are no lets their own.

This ia not aayuig, however, that the Lake Champiain valley is the only good apple-growing section in Vermont, for today some of the largest and best orchards of that State are situated in the hili country. The warm summer, cool fall nights, and severe winter conjoin, as a rule, to make a combination most pleasing to the apple grower and conducive to large crops of fine fruit. Occasionally, it is true, the extreme severity of a particular winter results in damage to some of the trees, but this represents simply one of the ordinary hazards of farming and does not constitute any greater risk than is to be reckoned with elsewhere and in other branches of agricultural work. Of course up-to-date methods are called for in order to obtain the same results that are obtained in the other sections of the United States which are given over to apple growing. If such methods are used, however, the Vermont orchardist obviously occupies a position of advantage, in relation to the great eastern markets, over his brother of the Pacific coast region, be cause the mere difference in freight on a delivered price in the eastern section of America would of itself give him a handsome profit. It is no longer a question as to whether Vermont can grow satisfactory apples; it has now become far more a question whether it can grow a sufficient number to meet the demands. The daily produce reports from the commission nouses in New York city during the apple season almost invariably place Vermont apples at the head of the list, both as to quality and prices. This speaks louder than many, arguments might do. There ia perhaps still a need for greater co-operation between the growers both in regard to marketing and such phases of the actual growing as spraying, pruning, etc., but undoubtedly any lack along this line will be taken care of in the near future satisfactorily. The editor of the rural New Yorker, a well-known farm paper, in a statement regarding Vermont's future, af ter calling attention to the fact that J jjuinaiiiy fine ib mi uKiituiiuitii mute, explained that her soil, climate and situation fit her admirably for two great Industries dairying and orcharding. To this he added: "Vermont's future stands with the cow beneath the shade of the apple tree. At present dairying contributes more to Vermont's yearly income than all other industries combined, but this is an age of co-operation. The cow needs a partner." And, be it said, in the apple growing of the state, all indi-tions point to the fact that the cow has obtained a worthy mate. RESULT OF TARIFF ACT FULLY VINDICATE REPUBLICANS The present tariff law has been in effect a year and in that period it has produced a revenue oi .04,541,b;.L In this respect it has confounded its opponents who predicted that it would prove a failure. It was contended that the higher rates would discourage imports, yet it has yielded $200,1)00.000 more than the preceding tariff which ostensibly was a revenue one. There is a joint purpose in a Republican tariff the production of revenue and the protection of American industries. The Fordney-MeCumber act has demonstrated it efficacy in both respect in all line wherein foreigner leek our markets. An enemy of protection recently ad vanced the idea that if the duty were removed from wool and woolen we might buy clothing at a reduced price. Possibly. But what would become of the sheep which now graze on the farms and .ranches? Perhaps the advocate of tuch a course would have the farmer grow more wheat We miirht buy steel a bit cheaper were all duties removed, but who would get the benefit? Germany able to pay labor in worthless currency would be delighted at the opportunity to sell in America unhindered. In the meantime what would the tens of thousands of employees of steel mill b doing while foreign workmen were making steel for our market? The question has far wider ramifications than as a matter of price. If the duties levied were excessively high it is clear that import wjuld be discouraged. That they have come in in great volume is demonstrated by the gures quoted. At the same timt the revenue i needed. The more than half-billion produced remove Jurt much diret taxation from income and profits. The result shows that th present law i I better revenue producer than it predecessor which was proclaimed a distinctly revenue act. Thus it excejs in both objects tought. The Fordeny-McCumber law has vindicated it f rameri and rnnfound-d IU opponent. Pittsburg Gazette-Times.
