At nightfall It was blowing almost a hurricane That night the passengers and crew were ordered to lash them selves to the rigging. The foroe of the wind and waves swayed the vessel In a terrible manner ana finally she parted her heavy anchor obalns almost simul taneously and began to drift. Tbe terrible situation bad its effeot on Miss Emerson, and she finally grew weaker from exhaustion and fright un til her lifeless body hung by the lashing In the rigging. Tbe action of the waves soon tore tne clothing from the remains, s At 3 30 a. in., the sohooner stuok on Handkerchief Shoal and, with an awful lurch, capsized and lay with ner star board side and three musts under water. Toe mate was plunged beneath the waves, but euooeeded In ollnglng to the mast. The captain and little girl, the steward and the two members of the crew-Magnuesen and Hejinan, were drowned.

My Dear Sir:—I did not say weMeeJy what 1 am resorted to have laid The meeting to which yon me wae sailed la relation to liquor selling In Lewiston, and what 1 said was: My deliberate lodgment, is that there to so worse man to be found than our rumseller, and If every rumseller In tbs state of Maine were in jail today, the state would be ten tboueand times better off than it Is now. You muss remember that the liquor sell ers In our state were not only dealing out their poison, but they were doing It In violation of law. I am, very truly, Win. P Frye.

In asking for the prayers of the people he said It was no empty request as already tempatlons had oorae to him sum dent to stagger any or dinary man The tight Is not against alcohol as a medicine, but against alcohol 08 a beverage. 1 say to every druggist: “You will not be disturbed unless you are In the ram business. If yon are, you ha<t better get out" Mr. Pearson saM he thought there should be a plaoe where people who believe In the use of aloohol as a medicine can get It without being compelled to violate law.” POH1CK WEKN UU3Y.

It wae a ead leeeon to the Portland High aohool boy* who a week ago held down the Invincible Hangar eleven to a •score of nothing to nothing to a hard fought oontaat. Naturally the Portland lad* anticipated an eaey thing of It at Freeport bnt they were not only defeated but pretty well need up before the tint half wae over. They were out weighed, out-played and out-olaeeed. The Freeport player* average many more yean to the man than the Portland boys and an thoroughly familiar with the game. 'They are aggressive and snappy and Saturday gave a rattling good exhibition of the waa In whleh kn win victories Their on ptinanity came la U» second hall when by tbeir rapid playing In the tlrst half they had pat soma of Portland's bestjmen out of the oonlest and forced them to pa t In substitutes. The regular tram held the Free port men In the tint halt In spite of their superior weight and playing and no soore was made although the ball was kept see sawing between tne Portland twenty yard line and the oenter of the tleld.dnring the entire half. The Port lands soon discovered that they had a bard proposition to master as tbe big Fr eport becks hammered away at the Portland right laakle again and again for bl« gains. When the Portlands got the oall they behl It for a short time only, their nervous desire to do something against tbslr stronger antagonists result ing In bad fumbles at orltloal moments Woodbury's putting was the star-feature of the tlrst ball and tbe second ball as well He Is a wander at booting the ball and once sent It Ofty yards up tbe lleld against a strong wind Thu aided tbe Portlands very moot in preventing the Freeport* from soortng In the tlrst hair. Several times the Portland boys won the ball on downs but this cost them a good deal and when the half ended It was plainly evident that the Portland men were not In the race. In the second halt with the substitutes In the line the Freeports kicked oil Portland rambled on tbe tlrst play and lost tbe ball on tbeir thirty yard line. The Freeports hammered away at the right taukle, making three yards to a play and Phil Cushing went over fur the first touchdown. Mo goal was kick ed from this touchdown Portland kicked oil again and Curtis caaghttbe ball on Free port e twenty yard line. Un the tlrst line up Coombs went around the Portland’s weakened right end and mads a ran the length of tbe held, scoring tbe eecond touchdown. Cartls kicked a goal from this. After these two touchdown» tbe Portlanl boys settled down Into tbeir harness and fonght valiantly. They held the Freeports for the rest of tbs half bat that was all It was a gloomy day for tbe Portland boys bnt they took tbeir defeat well.

Kcw Br«V(d It to flee Port Preble Sol diers Play. Only football enthusiasts had ths cour age to face the oold wind of Saturday to see the soldiers from Fort Preble play tbe Newburypjrt A. A team ana mere were not many of there. The crowd numbered less tban two hundred, not oonntlng tbe ever present aggregation of boys, Tbe vis iting team played a olean, gentlemanly game, surpassed in team work, In fast playing and won by a soore of sixteen to Uve, Port Preble's only touchdown was mads mure oy luck than anything else. Tbe soldiers fought hard but did not seem able to stand up before the onslaughts of tbe Newburypjrt players Tbe visitors opened big bolee In the sol diers line through which they pushed their plays Tor big gains. Tnery were also successful In running tbe soldiers’ left end but wben tbey attempt to make gains around the end defended by Cobn they were not so fortunate. It was a rather pretty game to witness, however, tbe aggressive, snappy work of tbe visit ors being as good as any seen here this season. Preble kicked off and the Newburyport half backs by alternate line booking mads big gains trom the beginning Nspjolal ly did they lind It easy to pat tbelr plays through Kaynor. The soldiers hnally made a desperate stand near the center of the lleld ana Lawson and Slade for the soldiers made good gains around the end.

When within twenty-live yards of the soldiers’ goal tbe Preble lino went to pieces and Colby went over for a touchdown tor the Newburyport team. A try at goal was a failure and the soore was llvs to nothing Kaynor kicked off again tor tbe soldiers ana the ball went to Pope on the 15 yard line, lie made a bad fumble of It and the ever present quarter back of tbe sol diers, little Jervey, was on top of It like a oat. Thompson and Slade made ten yards and on tbe third down with ten to gain Byrne was pushed over tbe New burypoirt line for tao soldtrs’ only tonoh down. This evened np the soore and the soldiers failed to klok a goal. The Newburyport players kept at the weak spots In the soldiers tine, making big gains and K.
