the bushes had thrown out a fragrant

The big moose of Maine are very saga
cious animals,evidently. Apparently real
izing their perfect safety under the gov

invade the city streets even in some
places. We understand a big bull moose
perambulated about the street of Brewer
last week, and several have been seen in
different localities in close proximity to
buildings. A big fellew was following
the railroad track some two miles out of
this village, the train slowing down for
some distance to avoid running him down,
before it finally decided to strike off into
Stanley Higgins’ woodlot. There is a

BED LIPS AND HEALTH
The first place that anemia, or thin
blood, shows is in the lips and gums
and the membranes that line the eye
lids. You may tie naturally pale and
still be healthy but when these mem
branes lose their bright red color your
blood is deficient in quantity or color.
Thin blood is a danger. It invites
disease. The organisms of the blood
fight off disease germs. Thin blood
means less power to do this. For in
stance, when you cut yourself it does
not heal so quickly if your blood is thin
To build up’ the blood there is one
remedy that has been a household word
for a generation, Dr. Williams’ Pink
Pills for Pale People. They tone up
the entire system, make the blood rich
and red, strengthen the nerves, in
crease the appetite, put color in the
cheeks and lips and drive away that
unnatural tired feeling. Plenty of sun
light, good wholesome food and fresh
air will do the rest.
Two books, “Building Dp the Blood”
and “What to Eat and How to Eat”
give just the information that every
mother of a growing girl needs. They
are free. _ Write for them today to the
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenec
tady, N. Y. Your own druggist sells

i Mrs. C. W. Peters, Lancaster, Pa.,
R' 3., writes: "My six-year-old girl has
wet the bed since she was a baby. I
found no relief until I tried your sam
ple of Foley Kidney Pills. I saw they
were helping her, and bought two bot
tles of my druggist and she is alto
?ether cured. Thanks to Foley Kidney
'ills for the benefit I have found in
them, as it takes a lot of washing off
me. I have told a number of mothers
since I found the cure.”
Parents no longer scold or punish a
child for bed-wetting. Instead, they
improve the little one's physical condi
tion, until the annoying and mortifying
act is done away with.
A few simple rules aided by the use
of Foley Kidney Pills will stop any or
dinary case of bed-wetting that is not
caused by obstruction or malformation
of the parts. They are safe to take and
absolutely free of harmful drugs.
Foley & Co., 2835 Sheffield Av., Chicago,
will send their leaflet on bed-wetting to
any one asking for it.

the sad tidings Oct. 9th of the sudden
death of their only son. Rev. Arthur F.
Linscott, who was preaching in East

telegram announcing his illness was fol
lowed by one of his death the same day.
Seldom does death bring so much of sad
ness to the entire community, as Arthur
was widely known, and a general favor
ite. He was a graduate of M. C. I., of
Bates College, and also of Hartford
Theological school. We have often heard
President Chase of Bates College speak
of him in terms of the highest praise,
as did all with whom he associated. A
friend who had known him from child
hood remarked: “Arthur was born a
Christian.” The funeral services were
held at his home in Troy, Oct. 12th, and
the large company present and the abund
ant floral offerings bore testimony of the
high esteem in which Arthur was held.
Rev. Wm. Snow’s heai tfelt words of the
pure, noble, consecrated life were much
appreciated by all. The parents and only
sister have the deep smypathy of the en
tire community. Arthur’s age was 32
Oh, cruel death, thou hast thy share.
