E. S Arnold.
Edwin S. Arnold the subject of
this sketch, who is the present can
didate for congress in the eight1
teetith district, was boru at Port
Ticverton. Nov. 12th. is.liS.
Mr. Arnold is in every respect a
self-made man. His father having
been killed in the battl" of Sailor's
Creek, during the rebellion, the
maintenance of the widowed mother
and seven brotheis and sifters
early devolved up n the shoulders
of Kdwin. These duties ho dis
charged faithfully, sometime by
driving mules on the towpath of the
canal or perhaps as ploughboy for
the neighboring firmer. Ibiving a
desire for knowledge lie attended
the public schools and read the
various books to which he had ac
cess. When the state established
soldiers' orphan schools he became
a member of the one located at Mc
Alisterville. Graduating with hon
ors he set out to climb still higher.
Having no friends to help him he
again sought employment on the
canal, and there earned the money
to realize the purpose he so ardent
ly held in view.
Ho now attended the Freeburg
Academy, which was under the
principalship of tlu.t devout man
and scholar -Major W. H. Dill.
Here combining determiuat i.ui aud
genius, he made rapid progress und
came forth a promising young man
with more than ordinary ability.
For several years ho taught suc
cessfully in the public schools. He
also published a newspaper the
lt'yxtm- A' i-i illf a journal reple.e
with patriotism, instruction and en
tertainment, designed chiefly for
those, who like himself, were destin
ed to meet the difficulties of life
without a father's service. Finally
he was employed by the government
aud has continued in its service for
twelve years. His convictions are
honest, his integrity unquestioned,
and with his twelve years of public
life, he is not only competent, but
pre-eminently qualified to Ml the
position to which he aspires. In
Union towunhip this manly man
will be endorsed by practically cverv
vte. ,. -. X.
