Henry Towle died yesterday afternoon at
the age of 76.
■Mr. Towle was in many respects a remark
able man. He was all his life a laboring
man, a hard worker, yet by dint of strong
ability he made for himself a career of
One of the old guard of anti-slavery men,
Mr. Towle lived to see nearly all of his old
leaders, with the exception of Rev. Parker
Pillsbury, pass away. He believed in
freedom, and was one of the first men in
Maine to accept the message Garrison bore.
He was a man of peace and faithful to the
central idea of Garrison’s creed. Mr. Towle
was a working anti-slavery man, one of
those who knew all about the ''underground
railroad’’ that connected the South and sla
very with the North and liberty.
Every temperance man in Maine knew Mr.
Towle. He was one of the first to stand out
as a champion of total abstinence from strong
drink. Long before the Washingtonian
movement of 1840 he was on the “iron clad”
platform. With his life-long friend, the late
Hon. John T. Walton, he began work in the
temperance field before there was an organ
ized temperance movement.
He went into the great movement of 1840
with all the vigor and fire of youth. He said
In a public address delivered a year ago tha*
he felt “you must do something,” and “Hen
ry Towle, the shoemaker,” as they called
him, began then and there his public labors.
He spoke with John T. Walton and others
wherever an audience could be gathered,
and he was one of the first men to come to
the support of Neal Dow, when he proposed
the prohibitory law.
Mr. Towle was not the man to hold back
from telling what he believed to be the truth
and his indignation at the course of the
liquor sellers sometimes called out bitter
words from the man who was of so gentle a
nature. He hated the sin but was sure to
forgive the sinner.
Mr. Towle was the oldest member
of the order of the Sons of Temper
ance. He was also a prominent Good Tem
plar, and a frequent speaker at the meetings
of both organizations.
He was one of the first of the old line tem
perance men of the state to encourage the
late J. K. Osgood to go forward with the Re
form Club movement, and his last public ad
dress to a Reform Club was made last year
when he was one of the speakers at the last
public meeting over which the late W. H.
Mr. Towle was a spiritualist, and as such
was very widely known. Always a strong
and interesting speaker, his addresses before
spiritualist societies were always Impressive
and often pathetic.
Mr. Towle was a good man, liberal beyond
his means, anxious to do what he could for
humanity, never trying to secure anything
for himself, but simply trying to "serve God
by helping others,” as he once said, he lived
out Ills days and died full of years, and re
taining to the last the respect of all who

Indians at Church.
Yesterday afternoon a party of the
Indians attached to the Forepaugb Wild
West show attended the Second Parish
church. Dressed in their go-to-meeting
blankets and wearing their Sunday paint,
the Indians as they rode down town on their
bronchos with the squaws and pappooses
in the coach which once carried travellers
through Western wilds, attracted a great
deal ol attention. They had.some big chiefs
with them, notably Black Bear, Sitting
Bull’s lieutenant at the Custer massacre,
Long Tooth, Grey Eagle and Short Horn.
Their demeanor in church was all that
could be desired. The Indians attend
church every Sunday In the place where the
show may happen to be stopping.
Freight Train Wrecked.
Freight train No. 4 shortly alter 10 o’clock
Friday night was wrecked about hall a mile
west of Kennebunk station. Three cars
were badly smashed ud and others slightly
damaged. The wrecking train was sum
moned from Portland and after working a

Col. Osgood Promises Great Things.
The three-year-old wonder, Col. Osgood,

Dazzl ng Parade of the “Wild West”
and 4-Paw Shows To-Day.
The census enumerators would have
found a new city if they had been abroad
yesterday. On the Forest avenue grounds
in Deering there had sprung up since day
break a community sheltered by canvas. The
great Forepaugh show had arrived, its many
tents had been pitched and the army of em
ployes were enjoying their day of rest and
receiving visitors, a great number of inter
ested people thronging the grounds all day.
Today at - and 8 p. m. the performances will
be given. A description of the street pa
rade, which leaves the grounds promptly at
9 o’clock this morning, gives some idea of
the many wonderful things to be seen in the
Forepaugh circus under Colonel
Cooper’s able management. Thorn-ln-HIs
Eye, Lone Bear and all the other famous In
dians of the Ogallala Sioux nation, the dark
skinned, bright-eyed squaws; the "cute”
papooses, brave and daring scouts, lasso
throwing cowboys, cowgirls, hunters, trap
pers and Mexican hidalgos; all the survi
vors of Custer’s old regiment, an emigrant
train, with a prairie "schooner," 144 years
old, the whole enlivened by a genuine cow
boy brass band, together with buffalo, elk
and other denizens of the Far West, will
march with the great features of the world
famed Forepaugh Show—an amusement ag
gregation that alone will exhibit free upon
the streets scores of glittering chariots and
open dens of performing animals, the largest
herd of elephants ever brought together in
America,a cavalcade of mediaeval knights re
splendent in their armor and panoply of
war, a series of magnificent tableaux on
wheels, illustrative of Lalla Kookh’s depart
ure from Delhi and Cleopatra’s journey to
meftt Mam Antnnv a t.rnnno nf or an nlnn I
Southern Jubilee Singers, six complete,
handsomely uniformed brass bands, and a
score of other features that want of space
prevents the mention of.
MUSIC AND DRAMA.
fills week, commencing this afternoon,
the Howe Dramatic Company will present
Joaquin Miller’s beautiful Mormon drama,
entitled ‘The Danites.” It will be presented
with all the thrilling scenes and incidents,
and a strong cast of characters, Katherine
Howe takiDg the part of Billie Piper. Those
that have seen her in the different characters
this season should avail themselves of this
opportunity as this is one of her strong parts.
The company this week has been strengthen
ed ; this with the new scenery will make this
play a strong drawing card. At the band
stand there will be a guessiDg match for a
gold watch. The one guessing the nearest
and holding the ticket on Saturday evening
will secure the prize. Take garden steamers
foot of Exchange street.
Tonight Mrs. Keane will appear as Rosa
lie in ‘‘The Life of a Actress.” The play deals
largely with life behind the footlights and In
the flats and wings. In the rehearsal scene
very funny men, Burnham and Phillips, will
introduce the screaming farce “The Modern
School of Acting,” which is calculated to
make those who witness It loose all sense of
care and give themselves up for the time be
ing at least to unrestrained merriment. An
nie McVeigh is assigned to the character of
Bob, the debutante, and the Boston Herald
declares that she is full of mischief and as
merry and hoydenish as could well be ima
“Con, the Shaughran,” will be on the
boards this week at the Pavilion Theatre.
This play is reproduced by universal re
quest. In no play that he has taken part in
has Mr. McCallum won such renown as in
the character of ‘-Con.” To see him in this
role is well worth the price of admission.
Miss Florence Hamilton has joined the com
pany, and the cast will be otherwise

Dr. Bennett F. Davenport, tbe State Analyst ol
Massachusetts, at the request of the “New Eng- '
land Grocer,” analyzed the three leading Baking
Powders now on the market—The Royal, Cleve'
land’s and Thepure.
In spite of the trumpeted claims of the two for
mer. It was found that Thf.pube was ahead in
all qualities that make Baking Powder valuable.
With retard to strength ana keeping qualities.
Dr. Davenport’s report savs: “When first opened
Thepure was found to be tbe strongest, yielding
8.83 per cent, more leavening gas than the Royal,
and 8.U2 per cent, more than Cleveland's," and
again, “after exposure to light and air In my office
window and re-tested at Intervals of one, two and
three weeks, they were found to still rank In tne
same order. At the last test, however, Thepure
was 13.39 per cent, stronger than tbe Royal, and
2.92percent, stronger than Cleveland’s.

ita excellence—Try it.
