This is one of a series of meetings held and to be held in Oxford County under the direetion of Rev. Charles \V. Shelton, one of the national tield secretaries, and Kev.

Only the family and a few of their most intimate friends were present at the ceremouy, a larger circle of friends aud neighbors comiDg in at a later hour to extend their greetings and congratu lations. Light refreshments were serv ed. aud all went "merry as the marriage bells." The wedding presents were both numerous and valuable. Mr. and Mrs. Allard will make their future home in Cambridge, Mass. The selectmen finished their work of issessing the l!X)2 tax last week, and committed the same to the collector, who will probably be around promptly uid let you know how much you owe. The result of the valuation is pleasing. There is an increase in valuation of *29,100 from hist year, about three fourths of which is on real estate, and one-fourth on personal property. The selectmen say that more stock is being kept, and that the quality of it, particu larly of cows, is distinctly improving. Although the total assessment is very nearly the same as last year, the increase in valuation reduces the tax rate halTO mill, so it is even 1ϋ mills this year. The number of polls taxed has also gone up from 814 to 878, notwithstanding a uumbcr oL>aged and feeble men have been dropped.

The audience at the Norway Opera House Thursday evening, May loth, will have au opportunity of comparing the merits of one of the most successful plays of some years ago, The Galley Slave, with the more recent examples of the romantic drama, and adaptations from novels, which have tilled the stage for two or three years past. Bartley Campbell, in his life the most able and prolitic of American dramatists consid sidered The Galley Slave his best work, aud over 2,1)00 performances are record ed for it in this country. So success fully was it received last month in New York that it was decided to give the play another road tour, with new scen ery and a special company—and like old wine, it may bo found better than the new. The strong human interest of Campbell's plays has certainly never been surpassed in any recent dramas of the day. The company consists of four teen New York artists specially selected for this play. There can be no doubt that our playgoers will see a first-class attraction as excellent in every detail as they could have at either the Portland or Boston theatre, as this is the smallest town the company play on their way to Portland, Bath and Bangor.

I., while al , work as brakeman on the New York New Haven and Hartford. His heat struck a bridge which be did not see. The Maine Civic League held its an nual meeting at Waterville Wednesday. Principal George C. Purington of Farm ington was elected president, and Rev. W. F. Berry secretary. In the evening an address was given by Sheriff Pearson. The Central Labor Union of Portland has unanimously passed a resolution binding its members to purchase no beef for 30 days as a protest against the unjust discrimination of the beef trust as espe cially directed against the working class. The opposition in Bangor to the re nomination of Congressman Powers all disappeared when the caucuses were held, and Joseph E. Hall, the other can didate, announces that he has withdrawn from the canvass, leaving Powers a clear field. In the suit brought by Mrs. Abbie D. Ramsdell against Dr. James B. Grady, both of Eastport, for damages resulting from the alleged unskilled treatment of the plaintiff's late husband, Henry F. Ramsdell, a verdict was given in favor of Mrs. Ramsdell for the amount of $3,000. Ezra Fisher, aged 35 years, under arrest on charge of stealing liens, com mitted suicide in a cell in the Bangor police station Monday by hanging. He took a belt which he wore, placed it about his neck and fastened it to an iron bar at the top of the cell door, then drew his legs up beneath his body. Clarence A. Mears of Rockland tried to take his life Monday night at Bangor by drinking an ounce and a half of laudanum. He was discovered by the people where he roomed in time so that physicians saved his life. He left letters to his mother in Rockland and to a young woman in Bangor bidding them good bye. On Tuesday, Charles Tripp of North Anson was working in a sewer near the ! post office when suddenly one side slid ; in on him, covering him up to the shoulders. It pinned the young man against a rock. Willing hands dug him out with all possible speed, but he was hurt internally and died in a few minutes ! after he was carried into his home. The coast down Eastport way seems to be about the only place they can . beach and burn the discarded warships. There the old Minnesota of glorious his tory was destroyed, and there they are to take the old Vermont and burn her for her metal. The keel of the Vermont was laid in ISIS, but not launched until 1S48, and had lain at the navy yard most of the time since. Of the 4018 school houses in the state 3,135 are reported in good condition which was a slight gain over the year preceding. Of this total number, 1,950 schools have the United States tlag. During the past year there were 00 school houses built at a cost of $103,448, which brings the estimated value of all school property to $4,53S,018, which was a decrease for the year of $161,457. The case of Henry Lambert, who was convicted of murder at the special ses sion of the supreme court for Piscataquis County, last November, will probably be argued before the law court at the Portland term. The Lambert trial oc- : cupied thirteen days, and a great amount : of testimony was taken. An idea of the | amount of testimony so taken is to be gained by the knowledge of the fact that the evidence makes a book of 1200 typewritten pages. Three men were captured in tne ! clothing store of M. M. Bartlett at South Berwick early Thursday morning, a clerk having been aroused by a burglar alarm. The clerk on being aroused by the alarm quietly called upon three neighbors and they surrounded the ! store. They found that a window had been broken and that three men were at work inside. On finding that they could not escape the burglars surrendered without resistance and were taken to the I station. They were bound over. The sounding of the burglar alarm was the repetition of an occurrence of a year and a half ago, and the clerk who was awak ened by the noise did juet what was done on the previous occasion. Four were captured in the previous raid. James F. McManus of Waterville re cently received a letter from Charles L. Beat, now serving a life sentence for the murder of hie father fourteen years ago. Beal writes that his confession will be seen in the papers in a few days and the letter is dated May 4. Mr. McManus was one of the witnesses for the state and testified to having a conversation with Beal in the former's drug store relative to the power and effect of strychnine. Beal asks McManus to assist him at the next pardon hearing. The elder Beal was poisoned by the ad ministration of strychnine to whiskey and the family resided in Clinton. Sev eral attempts have been made by Beal to secure a pardon. In Beat's confession, which was published a few days later, he admits putting strychnine in his father's whiskey, but says he did it to cure his father of drinking, without knowing it was a poison. A NOTE When I read the criticism of the Lord's Prayer by him who changed is to are, thinks I to myself: It is perfectly grammatical just as it stands. I do not believe that the translators intended to make a "lump sum" of the three sub jects else they would have made use of the predicate are if they were fit for the position to which they were appointed, it would have been grammatical but it would have weakened the expression. Thiue is the kingdom, Thine the power and Thine the glory is better, more finished and has the ring of church bells over the hills and far away. I agree with your correspondent Stowe and the translators most emphatically, not only because of its truth to grammar, but be cause of its rhythm. By the way, I assume that correspond ent No. 2 is past middle life, has been iu the "big class in parsing," and has had some jolly disputes. John. MASONIC GRAND OFFiCFRS.

PAPERS NEVER MENTION IT. f A PECULIAR CONDITION OF THINO I THE REVELATION OF WHICH WL r PRORABI.T SURPRISE MOST READEI • Denmark, Mat 1,1901. 1 Editor Democrat : · I have been a subscriber of the Dem ■ crat a number of years, have read qui ι a number of other Maine papers, b ! have never seen a single Maine papc ) that has ever had a word, line oreyllab ι to say in praise of, or for, or in behalf > ι the old soldiers, or in favor of the pe sion laws, or for the poor old cripplc soldiers, their widowe or orphans. 1 will speak of Denmark. It has alwa; been a little inclined to Copperheadisu a strong Democratic town. While a Democrats are not coppery, lots of thei in Denmark are given to that particul: color. I have seldom met a Republica that was colored a little, but have met few that got the color by reading tli I Eastern Argus. I The class of men in this town who, dui ! ing the drafts in the time of the R< i bellion, skipped to Canada or had var j cose veins, or dependent parents tha j couldn't be left, are now the men abov mentioned, who are cursing the ol pensioners, and damning the pensio ! laws, and men who made the laws—wli I are always upholding and extolling th j man Evans, Ex-Commissioner of Pen sions, because lie lias been a pensioi ! hater from the word go. He has ignorei < the pension laws that Congress lia passed from time to time. He has fron the beginning of his service in the pen j sion bureau, done all he could do, t< I blockade pensions. He has ignorei the reports of our examining boards ii thousands of cases, and the poor oh , soldier, or his widow and orphans, hav< I had no place in the heart of Evans foi what they are rightfully entitled to bj ; the pension laws. In order for a persot who is entitled to get a pension, he οι she must furnish proof enough to liant a man, and the chances are all against tin claimant for pension or increase o: pension. Maine sent into the army during th< war of the Rebellion seventy-two thou sand one hundred and fourteen men (72,114), and I don't think there are tor men in town who know that Maine evei sent a baker's dozen, and all this igno· ranee because our state papers tell noth ing to give them information on the sub ject. 1 was a soldier in Co.

St. Louis, May 3.—Several times the amount of power employed or required at any former Exposition will be used at the World's Fair here. The policy of the management is to encourage life and motion in exhibits and ample provision is being made in the power plant which is to be installed in the western end of the machinery building. Present esti mates place this amount at 22,000 horse power. The Director of Exhibits, Frederick J. V. Skiff, in a recent report to President Francis, says: "Letters have been addressed to ex hibitors in machinery at previous expo sitions, requesting an expression of their willingness to participate in the Univer sal Exposition at St. Louis, and the re plies have been in the highest degree satisfactory, and indicate that practically all who exhibited there desire to do so at St. Louis, but on a much larger scale. A circular of instructions is being pre pared for general distribution, de scriptive of the purposes and of the general plan and scope of the Depart ment of Machinery. It will reach not only the makers of machinery and ma chine appliances but also those interest ed in the machinery trade, it being the purpose to create a widespread interest and a sentiment favorable to the Exposi tion. The Chief, in his contact with machinery people, finds that the grant ing of free power and space appeals not only to exhibitors but to the general public in a forceful way. He reports 'The people see that we are not asking for National and State appropriations, and then exacting fees from the very class for the special benelit of which the Exposition professes to organize and theoretically exist.' " A JUUIUIUUa MUVt. The New York Commercial has these pertinent remarks regarding the recent distribution of £>000 among its employes on a profit-sharing plan, by the Hyde Windlass Company of Bath: The Hyde Windlass Company is one of the constituent corporations embraced in the general affairs of tho Bath Iron Works, whose best known business is the building of war-craft. This move on the part of its management is some thing new "up in Maine." It is pri marily, of course, an act of generous ap preciaion of the efficiency and loyalty of the employes. It will, no doubt, prove also to be a most excellent invest ment. Bath is far removed from the centers of labor agitation and disturb ances. Heretofore its chief industry has been singularly free from embarrass ments arising from that source. But with the recent growth of the city and the incoming of hundreds of outside wage-earners who are lacking in that fraternal and neighborly interest which naturally characterizes the native work men, industrial peace could not be reck oned on as a permanency. It was the part of wisdom therefore to demonstrate thus early and in the most practical way the kindly interest of the windlass com pany management in its workmen, and its desire to have them stand in the rela tion of partners in so far as possible. Strikes are expensive and whittle down profits. If any of the Hyde em ployes are hereafter disposed to strike, they may now understand that the at tack would be on their own pockets. A possession of that knowledge by the employe is perhaps the beet of all way» through which to establish a perfect community of interest between laboi and capital. FIRST REGIMENT COMPANIES. Major General Farnham, adjutant general of the state, has received the re ports of company inspection of th< organizations comprising the First Regi ment of the National Guard. He liai tablulated the standing of the respective companies according to tho recordi made by them in the various branchei of the work they are to do. The rela tive standing of each company is obtain ed by taking the best credits out of : possible 200. These are the figures ο the First Regiment companies for tin past year in the order of their rank : I, l^wiston, 181 27-49; M, Westbrook 173 3-43; L, Portland, 171 7-47; C, Au burn, 149 15-45; G, Biddeford, 140 29-49 A, Portland, 140 4-43; II, Rockland, 13: 22-52; D, Norway, 131 22-46; B, Port land 128 20-45; E, Portland, 115; Κ Brunswick, 113; F, Augusta, 101 30-41 When the reports from the Seconi Regiment and the other organization are completed the question of the dispo sition of the prizes offered by Governo Hill will be made. There has been quit a rivalry among the companies for th prizes. KEEP THE BALANCE UP. It has been truthfully said that an disturbance of the even balance of healt causes serious trouble. Nobody can b too careful to keep this balance u] When people begin to lose appetite, c to get tired easily, the least imprudenc brings on sickness, weakness, or debi ity. The system needs a tonic, crav< it, and should not be denied it; and tl best tonic of which we have any know . edge is Hood's Sarsaparilla. What th ι medicine has done in keeping healt): Copie healthy, in keeping up the ev< lance of health, gives it the same di tinotion as a preventive that it enjoys ι a cure. Its early use bas illustrated tl wisdom of the old saying that a stitch ; time saves nine. Take Hood's for app • tite, strength and endurance. PENSION MATTERS !

These figures are interesting in comparison with prices of the present day. Wages were higher then than they are now, but not nearly proportionately so. Yet people got along then with no particular hardships. They made goods go further than is the habit now.
