Is your work wearing you out?
Are you tortured with throbbing
backache—feel tired, weak and dis
couraged? Then look to your kid
neys! Many occupations tend to
weaken the kidneys. Constant back
ache, headaches, dizziness and rheu
matic pains are the result. You sut
ler annoying bladder irregularities;
feel nervous, irritable and worn out.
Don’t wait! Use Doan’s Pills—a
stimulant diuretic to the kidneys.
Workers everywhere recommend
Doan’s. Here’s an Ellsworth case:
Arthur Brown, carpenter, Birch
Ave., says: "My kidneys were in a
bad shape. My hack bothered me
when about my work and there was
a deep seated pain just over my kid
neys. Every time I caught cold I
was worse. I used Doan’s Pills
from Alexander’s Pharmacy and was
Price 60c. at all dealers. Don’t
simply ask for a kidney remedy get

Brown had. Foster-Milburn Co.,

time Mr. Gouldsboro was for nearly
half a'century the village black
smith. Though he retired a few
years ago from active labor in his
shop, he is always glad to accom
modate his friends, and has recently
made a set of ox shoes for a neigh
bor. Possessed of more than the
average ability, lie can turn his hand
to almost anything. He can play the
violin for others to "trip the light
fantastic,” and call off a quadrille or
contra with as much grace as those
many years his junior. Last spring
he built a camp for his convenience
while chopping wood, and has it
finished with neatness, which is one
of his many virtues, and furnished
with a table, two chairs, and water
bench. Here lie is always delighted
to see his friends, and have a pleas
ant chat and smoke. The camp he
had built at his residence, which is
one of the neatest and most con
venient in town, and had it hauled
into the woods, a distance of more
than a mile, where his estimable wife
often takes dinner with him. Three
yeairs ago in February they cele
brated their golden wedding. May
they live many more years to enjoy
the fruits of their labor.

The wedding reception of Mr. and
Mrs. Kim ore F. Richardson was held
Saturday evening, Dec. f>, at the
home of the bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Raymond Williams. The rooms
were prettily decorated with potted
plants and crepe paper. The bride
was charming in a dress of blue can
ton crepe. There were many beauti
ful gifts, consisting of cut glass,
china, silverware and money, and
fifty dollars in gold, the gift of the
bride’s parents. The bride Is em
ployed at the Eastern Manufacturing
Co., of Brewer, where she holds a
fine position, and for several years
previous was a successful teacher in
the rural schools. The groom is an

“Those who can, do; lliose who
can’t, go to college," is an exploded
idea. Witness the results of a sur
vey of the student body of the Michi
gan Agricultural College recently re
ceived by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture;
It was found that more than 7 per
rent, of the students at that school
previously had been members of 4-H
clubs, those organizations of boys
and girts, fostered by the Department
of Agriculture and the agricultural
colleges, in which the only results
recognized are those which are ob
tained by “doing." There are now
133 students at this college who had
received training and inspiration
from their club work under county
agents and club leaders. They did
things with llelds of corn, with gar
dens, with docks of hens, with pigs,
and calves and sheep, in canning, in
sewing, and in a score more ways.
But because they learned lo do these
things well they did not scorn the
lecture hall and laboratory. On the
contrary, their curiosity was aroused
and their desire for a better educa
tion was whetted by doing things.
Of particular interest is the fact
that, although engineering and lib
eral arts also are taught at this
school, more than twice as many of
• these former club members are en
rolled in agriculture and home eco
nomics than in all the other courses.
The knowled e and skill these boys
and girls acquired in their practical
club work stimulated an interest in
farm life and an appreciation of the

To the cradle-bough of a naked tree,
Benumbed with ice and snow,
A Christmas dream brought suddenly
A birth of mistletoe.
The shepherd stars from their fleecy
Strode out on the night to see:
The Herod north wind blustered loud
To rend it from the tree.
But the old year took it for a sign.
And blessed it in his heart:

Let now my soul depart.”

For some time I've been promising
myself that 1 would write to you and
tli. .Mutuals, hut kept putting it off.
I Lid planned to spend the winter in
L ist 15lu. liil 1. but finally decided to re
m.-iin in tin- land of sunshine on.- more
winter before returning to Maine.
My son passes liis papers on t<> me,

I recently spent a few days at Cata
lina island, where one of my sons lives.
This magical island lies about twenty
live miles off Los Angeles harbor, be
ing connected by daily steamers. The
island, then densely peopled by In
dians. was discovered by the Spanish
navigator. CabrHIo. in 1 “»41?. About five
years ago. William Wriglcy. jr.. the
.hewing gum magnate. purchased
Catalina island for three million dol
lars, and has since spent four millions
in improvements, including water sys
lem. paved roads. sewers, telephone
cable to the mainland, etc.
The island is about twenty miles
long, of volcanic origin, and in many
places rising in steep bluffs from the
water. The main settlement, Avalon, is
built around the bay of Avalon, which
forms a semicircle. Many of the
houses are built upon the terraces, high
bluffs banking the horseshoe. To reach
my son's door. I had to go up 1 •!.< steps.
Needless’ to say. 1 paused for breath a
few times during the ascent, but the
view is well worth the climb. From
the sun porch we look down on the
roof of Zane Urey's new summer home,
while on the terrace below stands the
cottage of Tom Mix. of movie fame.
On this roof is painted in huge let
ters, “T. M..” reminding me of the old
lady’s pies, marked with the same let

Farther down, near the center of the
horseshoe, is the new summer home of
i fene Stratton Porter, built of Cali
fornia redwood in its natural colors.
'Phis home is called “Singing Water,
the name coming from a very unique
fountain in the yard, being built with
pebbles and abalone shells, set in con
crete in irregular fashion, so that the
water as it ripples down in little
streams, dropping from shell to shell,
produces various musical notes, similar
to the low tones of a canary.

Livestock Necessary.
In a talk delivered during tile In
ternation Livestock Exposition, held
at Chicago early in December, Dr.
John R. Mohler, Chief of tlie Bureau
of Animal Industry, United States
Department of Agriculture, told
briefly of the importance of live
stock in our national economy. “One
may ask.” said Doctor Mohler, “why
it is necessary or even desirable to
have a large animal population in the
country such as this with its millions
of automobiles and trucks and its
vast acres for producing cereal
grains. The answer is simple. Our
domestic animals, developed through
long years of evolution, are marvel
ously efficient in converting vast
quantities of grasses, forage, plants,
and other products which are of
slight direct value to mankind into
valuable anintal products. These
products include meats, milk, butter,
cheese, leather, fats, wool, mohair,
and almost countless by-products
ranging from violin strings to
“The United States contains the
largest corn-producing region in the
world, yet the human population uses
only about one-tenth of that crop di
rectly as food. The public appetite
much prefers to use the corn crop
in the form of juicy steaks and
savory hams. Through the stock
man's skill our domestic animals are
becoming gradually more efficient in
converting coarse feed into refined
and concentrated products. As al
chemists for the refinement of base
materials, cattle, swine, and sheep
to say nothing of goats—have an
enviable record."
Study laical History.
A "local history contest” in the
schools of Douglas county. Ore.,
sponsored by the extension division
of the University of Oregon, has of
fered a new significance to local
history and has increased a spirit of
pride and interest in the community
and state, according to School Life,
a publication of the Interior Depart
ment, Bureau of Education. It also
formed the basis of interesting and
valuable work in English.
in writing their stories for the con
test the children were limited to
events and incidents within the terri
torial boundaries of their respective
school districts, although they were
permitted to go into other districts
and interview former residents.
Anything of historical interest was
permitted in (lie contest, such as the
first settler in the district, the Hirst
home, the history of the school, the
church, the first store, the first roads
and how, perhaps, they grew out of
the old pack trails and developed into
the splendid highways of the present
day. the history of the transporta
tion system, any special industries
in the district and the history of
their development, Indian legends
and stories of battles between In
dians and whites, and of points of
historic interest in the community.

Writer Sees Agriculture Be

After studying the existing facts
carefully and seriously, 1 can imag
ine the future unrolling in somewhat
tlie following fasVoti:
With the progress of science anil a
a more thorough diiutt-cm of knowl
edge than there has been in the past,
the development of agrhutturo should
compare favorably vvilii that of me
chanical industry. Though the odds
tire against revolutionary discoveries,
there will be a marked advance in
agriculture us an art ; and In a coun
try having a considerable density of
population this will require a real met
amorphosis in agriculture as a busi
As the complexity of the situation
increases, thus demanding more and
more in the way of capital and knowl
edge, both the little farmer anil the
inefficient farmer will be forced to
the wall. There will he a survival
of the fittest.
Paralleling the tendency of the last
liti years in manufacturing there will
he a trend toward larger units. Suc
cessful farming will require compe
tent managers and highly paid special
ists, and these (tin be retained only
where there is u relatively large pro

To what lengths centralization will

surely be different in the various
branches of husbandry, it Is not like

To Observe Sun Spots
A very small telescope, or even an
ordinary field glass or opera glass, will
afford the reader a view of sun spots
at a time of solar activity. The
safest way to observe them is to point
the instrument at the sun and focus
tlie eyepiece until a sharp image of its
disk, several inches in diameter, is
projected on a surface of smooth white
cardboard held at a distance of from
two to four feet. The spots can easily
lie distinguished from specks on the
eyepiece by noticing that they move
with the sun’s Image. At present we
are just emerging from a period of
solar calm during which no spots have
been seen for weeks at a time. ltut
a new cycle of activity has already be
gun, and a few spots are beginning to
appear. The reader hardly needs to
be warned that if he wishes to look
directly with his telescope, field glass
or opera glass he must protect his
eyes with the blackest of smoked glass,
as the intensely bright Image would
otherwise seriously injure them.—By
George Rllerly Hale in Scribner’s.

j ((M01 1 won't! No! 1 shan't!'’
Lucilla cried hysterically. Evi
dently to the amusement of Carl
Grig,., Esq., who held both her hands,
and laughed so; .A. murmuring: "Let
me see! Two negatives made an af
firmative when I studied grammar.
| Thanks for them kind words, honey!
i Now—we’ll set the day, and have
j done with it all.”
“I hate you!” Lucilla shrilled, try
ing to free tier hands. Carl slid an
arm about her, then released them,
saying: “Poor little girl! Is she so
afraid of me! Or just plain angry?”
“Both!” Lucilla snapped. "Afraid
you'll break my wrists, mad because
! you are—yourself—the very moral of
j presuming vanity.”
i “Mow come?" from Carl airily. “Can
' I help seeing how much you love me
when you fly in a passion if I am so j
much as civil to the stranger within
the gates?”
“No sucli thing! I only hope she
takes you home with her for keeps,”
said Lucilla.
“That would he nice,” said Carl.
“Lime Court is next thing to Heaven.
i Unless, that is, it lias changed since
I played there with Linda. You know
we made mud pies together.”
“I—I didn’t know. 1 can't believe
It.” Lucilla stammered. Then rally
ing her forces: "So site is here to re
claim tier property—and it comes at
her whistle.”
"Who wouldn't?” Carl’s eyes were
rapt. "Such a darling she is. Only
i thing wrong with her is that pest.
! Jimmy Granger, lie's going to marry
her, coming Christmas.”
“Any objection?”
Carl shook his head. “That’s the
worst part of it. He's not good enough
of course, hut as near it as one could,
I hope for."
“How noble of you!"
“Not a hit.” said a placid Carl.
' “What Is to be will lie, whether or no
, it happens. That's that. Suppose we
I return to our own affairs."
“Please, what are they?" asked a
prim, almost drooping Lucilla. If she
hit(1 only known—Carl ought to have
told her— instead he had proposed
plumply. and gone on to asking a wed
ding date, taking consent for granted.
"My honey going to be good?” he
asked softly, thrilling her In spite of
tier wrath. “I think yes. Now .Tim
my Granger is my fore-ordained best
man. Linda’s to stay a month. Won’t
you please, plee-nse, marin, ask her
to play maid o' honor, and got the dis
1 turbance over before she goes?”
"How can I—when I’ve been nasty
about her?” Lucilla pouted.
Carl shook her gently. "She’ll un
dersmnd, being herself an engaged
person,” lie said. “Now, Missy, say
yes—say it right—I mean with a kiss."
Linda accepted rapturously. Lucilla
rejoiced—she had not quite forgiven
Carl tier abject surrender. Subtly,
with her softest eyes, her softest,
most luring tones, she took possession
of Jimmy, thereby forcing Carl to keep
Linda company. Time brought them to
the era of rehearsals almost before
they knew it.
It went off with a bang, having ev
erything hut the flowers, the music
and the bridal veil—heirloom lace was
not to be lightly risked. Lucilla was
letter-perfect, but Carl, despite his
audacity, fumbled and bungled ter
ribly the first time—so much that hy
Linda’s suggestion Jimmy took ids
place in the second attempt. Which
was something to remember. Looking
gratefully up to him, Lucilla whis
pered: "Thank you. But Pm almost
sorry you showed me the difference.”
At that he started the least bit,
i wheeled away, wheeled again, bent
low and said huskily: “Y’ou are also
different." Very low of course—but
Linda sensed rattier than heard the
words. She did not turn pale, nor
scream, nor faint—rather she laughed
more gaily than before.
“How about a suit for damages?
Seems to me you’d have a ease.”
Judge Trenor, Lucilla's guardian com
mented. Linda put on a reflective
look, laid her fingers over her lips, and
was silent ten seconds. Then she
smiled at the judge, saying: “My
gentleman, you’re crazy ! Me sue Carl,
whom 1 love rather better than myself?
He can do anything he likes If only
. he isn’t trying. Here’s to him and
1 his bride. May they live long and
J prosper. We'll try it over the magic
third time.”

lie was so thoughtful, so tenderly
kind It hurt tier sorely. She was glad
when he sent her straight to bed the
minute they were home. But sleep
fled her eyelids—dawn was blushing
in the east when she stole gray-faced,
haggard to Linda’s room, knelt at the
bedside, and said between sobs: “If—
1 if you want—Carl—you shall—shall
have him. 1 don’t—deserve him—not
1 good enough."
Linda must have slept lightly. In

penitent. With her lips in the wavy
hair soft as a baby’s she siiid:
