The Russians have captur ed three more cities and the Austrians are fleeing in disorder to the Carpathi ans. Other fronts in statu quo. Gov. Curtis has referred the matter of choosing a successor in the U. S. Senate to the late Hon. Edwin C. Burleigh to the attorney general's office for a decis ion as to the law covering the subject, but believeB there will be a special elec tion to fill the vacency, and of course a special primary election The Census Bureau’s report on Maine manufactures shows substantial in creases in most departments. Compar ed with 1909 the value of products has increased 13.8 per cent and salaries and wages 16 3 per cent. The capital in vested is $233,744,000. No boom, but a substantial and healthful increase. The National Democratic convention in St. Louis last week was a one-man af fair. President Wilson dominated. He wrote the platform, and though many of the delegates wanted a stronger man thafi Marshall for vice president, Wilson demanded his retention and the conven tion obeyed. The onlv ripple was over the woman suffrage plank, and the one adopted is considered by the suffragists less liberal than that of the Republican convention. Last Monday morning a luminous body appeared on the eastern horizon and caused considerable discussion. Some thought it to be the headlierht of the big German airship on a scouting expedition; others contended that Green mountain was in eruption; still others thought it was the moon which had been thrown out of gear by the excessive cannonad ing in Europe. But finally the oldest in haoitants, who had seen the orb in their youth, recognized it as the sun. “Truly the light >s sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eye to behold the sun.” Everybody rejoices at the appearance of the robins in the spring and loves to see them hopping about the lawn and pa trolling the garden. But this season they have lost friends by their persistent and incessant “calling for rain.” Of course you know that the heavy rains bring to the surface of the ground the big fat angle worms which have a promi nent place in the robin’s menu, and this saves the birds much labor, and that is why they call for rain. But while no one would obj'ect to occasional labor saving showers— for the robins — they have certainly overdone the thing in the past few weeks, and even the other birds have begun to scold. Last Thurs day morning a number of the birds held an indignation meeting in the apple trees, and while we can not undertake to re port their exact language, it was evi dent that they were excited and indig nant. All over Maine the news of the death, June 17th, at his home in AugUBta, of Hon. Edwm C. Burleigh came as a se vere shock, and by many in this State and elsewhere it was felt as a personal loss, as well as a great loss to the State and nation. Born upon a farm in the Garden ot Maine be developed into the best type of Maine manhood, physically as well as in all the attributes of true citizenship. In the positions of honor and trust which came to him in his busy and useful life he was ever mindful of the f: ct that a public official is the ser vant of the whole people; and as has been well said by the Portland Express “as Governor, as representative to Con gress and as United States senator, his thought has always been for the good of the people of Maine.” And further: “The generation which has known him will ever cherish his memory, and his name will go down in history as that of an honest and devoted public servant.” The chief topic of conversation for some weeks past has been the weather. The national conventions had some at tention for a while, but the war news from Europe was practically ignored. The weather was of more immediate and vital importance than the doings of the politicians or the bloody struggle across the water. The dollar to buy bread ar.d batter, shoes and clothing, depends upon weather conditions, and the weather conditions have been decidedly adverse. ' The oily crop oi> promise is the grass crop. In many cases the seeds for other crops are not yet in the ground. It has been too wet to plow, too wet to plant. We heard of one piece of ground, plowed early, on which the grass had grown so that it was necessary to mow it before it could be plowed the second time. Gardens generally have been planted, but farming has been at a standstill, and unless there is a speedy and favorable change in the weather it will Boon be too late to put tn some crops. The be lief is growing that the almost continu ous rains are due to the heavy cannonad ing in Europe, and if that theory is cor rect there is no relief in sight. LaBt year was cold and wet, as this season has been, and there were few places where the ground was in fit condition tc cultivate during the summer, A Belfast man recalls the fact that the season fol lowing the close of the Civil War weTiad a severe drouth, and thinks that the close of the European war may be mark ed by a like experience. But let us hope for better luck, and that the weathei man at Washington will soon change hie formula of "Showers tonight and to morrow.” Without orphaning a single American child, without widowing a single Ameri can mother, without firing a single gun or shedding a drop of blood, he wrung from the moBt militant spirit that ever brooded above a battlefield the conces sion of American demands and American rights. This passage from the speech of Sena tor James in the Democratic convention is said to have “swept the delegates off their feet” and the Brooklyn Eagle says it “is an achievement of Woodrow Wil son which will be appreciated in millions of American homes from which husbands and sons would be called to arms in case of war,” But what of the orphans and widows of Americans murdered in Mex ico, who were refused the protection of our flag by the Wilson administration. The loss of American lives when ships and troops were sent to Vera Cruz to de mand a salute to our flag, and incidentally to aid the cutthroats and bandits who were seeking to overthrow the defacto Mexican government? The Balute to the flag was never given, and today, Carranza, recognized by Wilson as presi dent of Mexico, has threatened to attack our troops sent in pursuit of Villa—Wil son’s first choice for president—if they move in any direction but back to the border, and two artillery companies from Maine are now on their way to Texas. In fact we are today, and have been for some time past, practically at war with Mexico, due to the unwarranted inter ference of President Wilson with the in ternal affairs of that country. Monday’s papers brought news of the calling out of the militia in all the States and the send ing of additional war ships to the eastern 1 and western coasts of Mexico, and later reports are that Carranza is raising an army of 500,000 men.

The Boy Scouts entertainment and benefit Wednesday e vening, June 14th, was a great success, for the Colonial Theater was filled to its capacity and the financial returns were very good. The street parade giyen by the Belfast BoyB* Band and the Belfast Boy Scouts attracted a great deal of favorable attention. The boys carried their troop flags, which were seen in parade for the first time. The war picture which was to have been presented did not ar r ive in season, and Arthur N. Johnson, who was to have rendered a tenor solo, did not ap- 1 pear. Reginald Boardmr.n, the boy pianist of I Islesboro, gave two selections which pleased ' the audience. The short comings in the pro gram were not due to any fault of the Boy Scouts, and Scoutmaster Dickey, who acted as drum major for the Boys’ Band in the parade, so explained to the audience. The winners of the prizes in the sale of tickets for the Boy Scout benefit were as follows: Tolford Dur ham, first; Frank Downes, second; Walter Omar, third, and Harry Rumney, fourth.

They expect at least two battleships in the harbor and that the marines will take part in the festivities.

A superlative blood-purifying medi cine like Hood’s Sarsaparilla, com bined with a superlative iron tonic like Peptiron Pills, makes the ideal Spring Medicine. No other medicine possesses such curative properties as these two re storatives working together. They reach the impure, impover ished blood, and the run-down, ex hausted system. They awaken the appetite, aid digestion, purify and vitalize the blood, give renewed strength to the whole body, produce sound, natural sleep, and a complete restoration to good health,—the great est of all earthly blessings. Two dollars invested in these two medi cines will bring better results than four dollars spent in any other course of treatment or attendance. It is wise to get Hood’s Sarsapa rilla and Peptiron Pills today. The Minister who Feels' Well on Monday With many ministers, Monday is an ' "off day.” Not in the way of doing nothing, but in the sense of not feel ing well. After the hard work of Sat urday and Sunday, comes the nervous and physical reaction of Monday, with that “all-in” feeling. This is a con dition many ministers would be glad to be freed from. They can avoid it by giving proper attention to diet, and taking “L. F.” Atwood’s Medicine to keep the bowels in order, the stomach toned, the liver regulated, and the head clear. This old home remedy is so good that many ministers* are glad to recommend it, feeling that they are passing along a kindness in so doing. We will send a free sample to any minister, upon request. But m 35c bottle at your nearest store, j or write to-day for free sample. “L. F.” Medicine Co., Portland, Me.

A team owned by Ambroie Ellis caused no little excitement last Friday night. The horse was hitched to a truck wagon, and the hold back becoming unhitched ran down the Page hill. Two young daughters of Warren Pierce were sitting on the back of the cart and the older one jumped, but the younger one was so frightened that she clung to the wagon, which struck a telegraph post, the horse clearing himself and turning the wagon bottom up and throwing Mr. Ellis from the seat.
