When one has had the misfortune
to suffer from backache, headaches,
dizziness, urinary disorders and other
kidney ills and has found relief
from all this sickness and suffering,
that person's advice is of untold
value to friends and neighbors. The
following case is only one of many
thousands, but it. is that of an Ells
worth resident. Who could ask for a
better example?
Mrs. I’ercy Lindsey, 153 Main St.,
says: "1 suffered from kidney trou
ble and was in bed most of the time.
1 ached all over and many times was
so dizzy I fell. My feet and ankles
swelled. Doan's Pills rid me of the
Nearly four years later, Mrs. Lind
sey said: "Kidney disorder hasn’t
annoyed me since giving my recom
mendation for Doan’s.”
Mrs. Lindsey is only one of many
Ellsworth people who have gratefully
, ndorsi’d Doan’s Pills. If your hack
tP'lit s if your kidneys bother you, don’t
simply ask for a kidney remedy—ask
distinctly for DOAN’S PILLS, the same
that Mrs. Lindsey had—the remedy

home of her father, Evert on Gott,

Mayo, one of our most prominent
citizens, sustained a heavy fall,
causing great distress, and he was
taken to the Bar Harbor hospital.

covery. Sunday morning, Dec. 21,

tions of life, serving his town and
the fraternal lodges with marked
ability, lit the discharge of duty as
janitor of the high school building,
he was popular with both teachers
and pupils, always kind and genial,
making friends everywhere. Deep
sympathy is felt for the widow, who
has been an invalid for many years
and will sadly miss the tender care;
also for the son Fred and two (laugh
ters, Gladys and Chanie Trenholm. to
whom he had ever been a loving
father. Burial was at Mt. Height.

Pear M. H. Family:
I am writing this the morning
after. You all know what the
“morning after” means. While we
hgve slacked down from the busy
thoughts, and work anil plans for
Christmas, our sins of omission begin
to rise up before us. They were not
intentional sins, and we did not for
ge! the friends to whom we ^wished
and intended to prove by written card
or note, that we still remembered
them. It may be the days were too
short ; interruptions we did not count
on; a shortage of remembrances too
late to he supplied before the last
mail went. * * * * And then
comes a hope yes, something
stronger than a hope—a belief, that
old friends and new friends trust us i
to be unchanged in our friendships. |

Friends and Customers of Ours;
Again the season has arrived when we should give thoughtful
pause to the finer things life brings to each and all of us.
We are all a bit older, a bit wiser and, we hope, a bit hap
pier, than we were a year ago. Time in his rapid flight has touched
{us, some familiar faces are gone. In our own organization we miss
the kindly presence of the late president, 0. W. Foss, whose wise
:counsel and upright methods we, as an organization, in the days to
:Come can only hope to emulate. Not replacing, but helping fill the
void, new faces appear in our friendly circle.
All of us, we hope, have made smooth the path for some strug
gling footstep and won, when sincere, that prized token, "I thank
you"—springing from the heart, the wealth of a Croesus could not
{buy it.
To you, friends and customers of ours, "Thank you." Thank you'
for your confidence, your patronage, and your unfailing, patient
courtesy, if by chance a slip in our wheel of business annoyed you.
As the old year drops out into the "Past and Gone" may your
cares go likewise, and as confident 1925 comes in, may it bring you
and yours Good Luck, Good Health, and Prosperity, to last through
all of its days and all of your days to come. _
Sincerely yours,
