It is reported from Washington that President Wilson has hampered and hin dered Gen. Funston from fear of offend ing Carranza, and his sending of Gen. Scott to Texas to report on conditions is regarded by military men as a reflec tion upon Funston, whose ability and gallantry none can question. Returns from the Massachusetts pri mary April 25th indicate the defeat of the Roosevelt contestants for election as delegates to the National Republican convention and the election of McCall, Lodge, Weeks and Crane, who will go unpledged. In New Jersey also the Roosevelt delegates were defeated. Henry Ford carried the Nebraska pri- \ T,ary for president hands down and his boom is launched, with peace and pros perity for the campaign slogan, But | .’an he deliver the goods? His attempt ! to cali the men out of the trenches in Europe was a failure and fighting is said ! to have been continuous on hoard his Deace ship. The Ellsworth American publishes a .etter from Congressman Peters in re ference to the reports, current for some time, that he was seeking to succeed Senator Burleigh iu the Senate in 1918, and which he declares to be “without :he slightest foundation.'’ Mr. Peters says that if Senator Burleigh’s health continues good in 1918, he will very like y be a candidate to succeed himself. Latest advices from the Nebraska pri mary concerning the race for delegates- ! at-iarge to the Democratic National ] convention left William J. Bryan in the i ■sixth place on a ticket of seven, only ! four of whom will be elected. C. W. Bryan, brother of the former secretary )f State, and mayor of Lincoln, has been beaten for the gubernatorial nomination on the Democratic ticket, according to returns from more than two-thirds of the precincts in the State. The Bryan sun has set. An interesting feature of the European war last week was the arrival in France of large numbers of Russian troops to reinforce the western battle line. Fight ing around Verdun has continued, with heavy losses to the Germans and no sub stantial gains. The Russians continue to gain in the east and there is little change in the situation elsewhere. Ger many’s reply to the American note has not been received, but it is said that Berlin hopes to avoid a break with this country. The Mexican muddle continues. Gen. F. S. Niciccrson of Roslindale, Mass.,is theonly surviving brigadier gen eral of the Civil War from Maine. Anoth er brigadier general from Maine, who has gone to his reward, was William Mudgett of Stockton. He went to the front as a private in the 2nd Maine regiment and came home a brigadier general. A broth er commanded a regiment at Fort Fisher and was killed in that battle. After the 'war Gen. Mudgett engaged in business in the South. He has three sisters, the oldest and the youngest of a family of eight or ten, row living in Stockton Springs— Mrs. Lewis Partridge, Miss Fannie Mudgett. and Mrs. Samuel West. Continued ill health compelled Rev. Haraden S. Pearl to retire, for a time at least, from the calling he had chosen as hi3 life work, and he closed his pastorate of the Congregational church this week. He had inherited a love for Belfast, strengthened by early associations and frequent visits, and entered upon his work here with high ideals, enthusiasm and zeal. Unfortunately he was unable to bear the strain and occasional rests brought only temporary relief, and real izing this condition he felt it was best to tender his resignation. Both Mr. and Mrs. Pearl have many and warm friends here, who are glad to know that their n ew home is no farther away than Ban gor. Waltham, Mass., April 20. The resig nation of Judge Enos T. Luce of the district court here, the oldest judge in point of service on the Massachusetts bench, has been accepted by Governor McCall. Judge Luce, who is 84 years old, was born in Wilton, Me., and was formerly Judge of Probate in Andro scoggin County, Maine. This will interest the students of the old Lewiston Falls academy, of which Judge Luce was principal in 1856-7, and per haps later. In the years mentioned the writer was a student there. Edwin Pond Parker, later a Congregational clergy man and for fifty years pastor of a church in Hartford, Conn., was the assistant, and had the classes in French and Latin. Most of the students of those days have passed away,and among them were Gen. Charles P. Maddocks and Capt. Charles A. Curtis, U. S. A., an author • as well as a soldier. The Brandeis nomination iB still held up in committee. Is not the fact that an investigation of his professional con duct was called for, whether the charges brought against him were substantiated or not, sufficient grounds for declaring the appointment unfit. His appointment was clearly a political one, made to -further President Wilson’s campaign for preelection, and no one should want to see the Supreme Court of the United States thus prostituted. Mr. Taft was the logical candidate, and his appointment 'was asked for by leaders of both politi cal parties and by the National Bar As sociation. He was never a politician; bad he been he would have been more successful as President, and his qualifi cations for a seat on the supreme bench will not be questioned. An article in the current issue of The Independent speaks of the Supreme Bench as “the one branch of the government that must remain sacred and out of politics, “ and that is cne reason why some do not favor the attempt to draft a member of that tribunal for a party candidate.

The capture by the Russians of the Turkish Black sea port of Trebizond, at this particular time, is of tremendous significance. A year ago it would have been exaggeration to lay such stress upon the capture of a town of 40, 000 in Asia Minor. Today, straws blowing be fore the wind cannot be ignored. Trebizond’s fall points the way toward Russian victory over the Turks, Turkish defeat points the way toward the first 4>reak in the alliance of j the Central Powers, and a perceptible weaken ing of either side in the gigantic contest points the way toward peace.—Brooklyn Eagle.

Physicians and pharmacists have long known the desirability of com bining iron—a superlative tonic—in a blood-purifying, building-up medicine. The combination of the iron with Hood’s Sarsaparilla lias now been se cured through the happy thought of prescribing Peptiron Pills to be taken in connection with the Sarsaparilla— one before eating, the other after. In this way the two medicines work harmoniously and beneficially, each supplementing the other and giving a four-fold result in blood-cleansing and up-building. Peptiron Pills also include pepsin besides iron,—note the name, Pept iron Pills,—and other tonics. What better course of medicine can you imagine for Spring? You get blood-purifying, appetite-giving quali ties in Hood’s Sarsaparilla and great tonic properties in Peptiron Pills. Buy these medicines today.

Mrs. Rose Whitehouse of Bucksport, with Mrs. Orilla Shute and Mrs. Kate Staples, took the afternoon train last Thursday for Dover to attend the funeral of their brother, Mr. John Sanborn, who died after a short illness of pneumonia. The house and barn owned and occupied by Geo. A. Crocker were totally destroyed by fire last Friday afternoon. The fire started from some unknown cause in the barn, and when help arrived the house was all in flames and it was impossible to save any of the contents. Mrs. Crocker had gone to one of the neigh bors, and Mr. Crocker, who was at work near by, noticed smoke, and looking up discovered the fire coming from the barn. The high north wind blowing at the time made quick work of the set of buildings and spread to the woods across the road. The wood shed ad joining the house, owned by M. S. Richards and occupied by Frank Heath, caught from flying cinders, but was quickly extinguished, as was a woodpile near the buildings of M. J. Turaer. Every man in the place turned out to fight the fire and several came in automo biles from Stockton Springs and finally suc ceeded in extinguishing it, much to the relief of those living :n that vicinity. Much sym pathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs. Crocker, who returned from Augusta only a few days ago, where they had spent the winter. Fortunate ly the team had been let for the afternoon and the cows were in the pasture, which, with the clothes they had on, is all they have left. NUKTU lbLEoBUKO.

RESISTANCE TO DISEASE Debility ia a loss of vitality, not affecting any one part of the body par ticularly hut the system generally. It is dangerous because it reduces the body’s resistance to disease. When debility follows acute diseaspp, convalescence ia slow and the strength ' does not return as it should. An at tack of the grip often results in debility that persists for months. Everybody recognizes that the remedy for debility is to build up the blood because the blood goes to every part of the body and an improvement in its condition is cju'ckly felt throughout the system. The problem in every case is to find something that will enrich the blood. Dr. Williams’ l’ink Pills suit most people’s need because they are non-al coholic and they really build up the blood and strengthen the nerves. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills are useful for grow ing children and for men and women whose nervous energy has been over drawn. Try them whenever your blood ,s thin.

Potatoes have home in hot so very rapidly for some days, the regular price heing from $2 50 t; $2 60 for Green Mountains and about $2.25 for Irish Cobblers. This question has been asked of some of our dealers, raisers and well informed men generally: What percent age of all the marketable potatoes grown in Aroostook county the past year are still on hand within the limits of Aroostook county, in storehouses or the farmer’s cellars, for ship ment now, outside of the stock needed for eating and for seed purposes? The answers have varied from 12 per cent to 18 per cent. It seems to us that the amount on hand can not now be larger than 16 per cent, if as large.— Fort Fairfield Review April 19th.
