Roy Jesmer and Amos Howard were
obliged to go to Glendorado Tuesday
to get a team which a travelling man
had hired from them. Th traveller
is a salesman for an Indiana rubber
house and his name is Klein, not the
man who makes regular trips to this
village. hired the team with a
driver and although only an hour and
fifteen minutes was consumed in the
drive to Glendorado over rough roads
he roasted the driver, Orren Hamilton
for driving at such a slow rate. Fin
ally he threw the boy from the rig and
went on alone. Th team was recov
ered a short distance beyond Glendo
rado. It is safe to say that Mr. Klein
will have trouble in securing livery
from this town should he ever return.

while drunk, sued the saloonist

A new boou entitled "Wh
Killed Joe's Baby," by Rev.
Charles Sheldon, is a valuable ad
dition to temperance literature.
The profits from this book are do
nated to the cause of prohibition.
Some time ago I was asked to
state what the Methodists were do
ing ..as a church in the cause of tem
perance. I will have some one
who is better posted than I give an
answer. I would be glad to point
out many Methodist ministers who
are doing effective temperance
work. For example, the prohibi
tion sheriff of Portland, Me., a
Methodist pastor. If the work of
this one man was all that was done
in that city we should be proud,
but as a rule Christians are doing
more each year for the cause of
temperance. Prohibition does
prohibit and the rank and file of
God's army are being aroused ev
A picture of what Portland was
before the days of prohibition, and
what it is now, has been well de
scribed by Hon. Joshua Baily, of
Philadelphia, as follows:
"Portland, its streets, its com
merce, its wharves, were familiar
to me more than forty years ago.
There were then liquor'salboos on
nearly all the business streets, and
there were blocks of buildings on
the streets near the wharves where
liquor selling seemed to be. the
chief business. Jamaica rum was
one of the chief commodities dealt
in, as evidenced by the barrels
which crowded the wharves.
There were then some half-dozen
breweries in Portland, and at least
two distilleries. Where are these
saloons now and the barrels of Ja
maica rum? What has become of
the breweries and distilleries?
They are not there. If it.was not
the prohibitory law which closed
the saloons and stopped the impor
tation of rum and silenced the
breweries and distilleries, what was
it? Tell me, ye whose traffic has
been destroyed, and who yet detold
nounce the law as a failure tell
me, .ye professed friends of prohi
bition who denounce the law as a
failure because it doesn't work
miracles: tell me, what has brought
about this marvelous change W
do not say that the people of
Maine have no foe to encounter.
The liquor trafic is everywhere a.
relentless, law-defiant and unscru
pulous foe to the highest "and" best
interests of the community, and
the drinking passion will always
and everywhere resist restrictive
legislation and be fruitful in expe
dients to avoid and evade it. But
in the prohibitory law, and in the
public sentiment of the people
which sustains, it, the prohibition
ists of Maine, and the whole peo
ple of Maine, have everything to
encourage and stimulate them, not
only on account of the advance, so
far made, but because of the rare
opportunities- which they enjoy of
keeping their State not simply
abreast, but in harmony with the
motto of the coat-of-arms of Maine
(Dirigo) in the very forefront of
this great reform."

at home I heard a sweet voice by
my side. I looked up and saw a

you, sweet child?"
The child said in a low sweet
voice, I am a fairy. Is there any
thing you would like to wish?
You may have three wishes."
I looked at her for a few min
utes and then I said, "You dear
fairy, where have you come from?"
"I came from a long wa}roff
just to let you have three wishes,"
said the fairy.
I then said, "Dear fairy, I wish
for a pony and cart and!" I
stopped. I thought I was wish
ing too muchv But the fairy said
I could have one more wish. She
said that it was all right.
So I said, I wish for the last
one and that is for a happy soul."

wished a very nice wish and you
shall have what you wish. Come
down in the woods," and she
pointed her wand toward some
pretty woods.. After a while she
