A number of witnesses testified to
buying what they wero all careful to
call a very mild beverage, and which
they all said was bottled goods which
was taken from cases. The trouble
here was that after the seizure the

analyzed by sample at some i or 5 per
cent. But as no sales of that were
proved, all there was for the prosecution
to claim was that the mere possession
of it, though in the original sealed
packages and though claimed to lie
only kept in storage for sale in New
Hampshire, was enougn, with the sale
of this lighter beverage, to constitute
a "common seller." Evidently this
was tho point the jury was bung on.
for there could have been no other in
the evidence. If there had been a
conviction on it, it would have been
a good point to fight on in the higher
courts; for those sealed kegs, "orig
inal packages," according to the Iowa
decison, while they remain so, clearly
come within the lines of interstate
commerce, and the only power any
state law has over them is in 4he Ed
munds act giving tho states under their
police power the right to "regulate
the traffic;" but it is quite a stretch
to Bay that there is any "traffic" until
there are sales. There was no proof of
the possession of a federal license
which the law makes prima facie
proof of a seller for the h lat street es
tablishment, though of course there is
one at the brewery.

AM and Inaplriu. Address by Rev. Mr.
Temple Resolutions on the Armenian
The Thanksgiving day services were
neiu in tne uongregationai church yes
terday morning, the attendance being
fully up to the average. The meeting
was in charge of Rev. C. O. Day and
tne music was lurnisned by the church
choir. The opening prayer was made
by Rev. A. J. Hough and the Scrip
ture reading was by Kev. Air. Max
wen. i
The address of the dav was bv Rev,
Lk D. Temple who' took his text from
Paalma 82:1-2.
The fundamental truth of the Chris
tian religion, he said, that there is a
personal God to whom worship and
thanksgiving may be addressed
Thanksgiving is rational because God
is our father and cares for us. It is a
good thing to give thanks. It makes
one observant and reflective. Many
of our blessings are subtle and unsus
pected. The habit of thanksgiving
developes refinement. The essence of
refinement is courtesy, gratitude and
recognition of kindnesses. Giving
thanks leads to clearer perception of
the character of God. It brings tho
human will into truer harmony with
the Uivine will. As a result man re
signs himself to God and is more con
tent to rest in God's care. Thanksgiv
ing sweeps away the clouds from the
sky of our soul's lifo and lets the
sweetness and sunshine of Divine love
come in. Beneath the sense of the in
finite goodness the hardness melts
from our hearts. Thanksgiving makes
tne soul hopeful. The .New England
settlers at first endured many pnva
tionis. They observed many days of
fasting and prayer. Constant reflec
tion upon their distresses made them
discontented. Another fast was pro
posed. A plain old roan suggested, it
was high time to consider their
mercies. Tho colony was growing
strong, tne news wero more prouuc
tivo, the Hlreanis were full of fish and
the woods of game, tho air was sweet.
the climate good, their wives helpful
and their children obedient and above
all they had liberty. Therefore he
urged a day of thanksgiving instead of
lasting. Hie most adequate thanks
giving is impossible, without' faith in
the unfailing wisdom and constant
watchfulness of God. Famine and
pestilence, death and disaster, are all
for tho good of human society. 'They
are factors of a justice that is tem
pered with mercy and forces in a re
demption that makes not only happy
but holy.

side of the river, that he couldn't tell :
the books would show" and they
were kept by Turner. The latter was
put on the stand Tuesday and the
books called for. and ordered bv the
justice to be produced. Mr. Wason in
open court forbade Turner from going
on to Gale's brewery premises. Mr.
Martin vehemently declared that unless)
the order was obeyed he would move
for Mr. Turner s committment for con
tempt of court Mr. Stoddard quoted
the constitution protecting every man
from giving evidence in criminating
himself ad against unreasonable
searches and seizures. Mr. Fitts ad
mitted that Gale himself couldn't be
compelled to produce this evidence
against himself, but it was different
with Turner, who was only a witness,
who was protected by the statute from
this evidence being used against him
self in any subsequent proceeding and
who was to testify about the things he
had done, the charges and entries he
had made, as Irnok keeper. The argu
ment waxed hot. Col. Mask ins appear-
; ed at a later stage, and read from the
! decisions of the United State court!
, the Boyd and Counselman cases, that

Resolved. That the Saltan os th e exponent of
tne i urai.n government in allowing, or as some
ronorta indicate, in dlrectlns; the Di!la.6. rauine

burning of their home, and tho destruction of
their villages and cities, deserves the anathemas
or the whole civuueii world.
Resolved, That In common with the patriotic
citizens oi our wnoie country, in tne name ot a
common numanity, we urge upon our govern
ment at Washington, that thcytako such effici
ent nnd Ininiedtnle action, as will at once term!
nate these infamous acts of a wicked and Im
becile government.
Resolved. Thai we reuuest the various
churches of the town to take a collection at their
service next Sunday in atdoflhe "Armenian
Kouef una."
Rev. A. J. Leavitt then made the
closing prayer and Mr. Hough pro
nounced the benediction.
The Uuiversalist church had a
special Thanksgiving service Sunday
morning, with a thoughtful and up
lifting discourse from tho pastor, Kev
II. D. Maxwell. He took for his
theme, "Is this the possible of
worlds." He began by referring to
the statement in the fifth verse of
Psalm 100, "For the Lord is good,"
and said in part: Our attention is
called at this hour to larger questions
and graver problems than any inci
dentally connected with the passing
days of a single year ; let us see if
we can discover any evidence which
shall justify the assertion that this
universo as it is, is the work of a be
ing of intelligence and love. Many
severe indictments have been made
against things as they are, the good
ness of God has been bitterly im
pugned. In each life there are . indi
cations of divine beneficence. In a
healthy and normal condition of tbe
body every function operates with a
pleasure ereater than that is necessary
for the discharging of its office. The
mind, with its powers of observation,
reasoning, memory, imagination,
piration, stands in the world as the
source of the highest and richest joy
that we can know. It is mean and
small and selfish to refuse to be thank
ful. It is a wonderful thing to live,
to live in a great, grand, splendid way,
worthy of what we are and what we
may be; it is a wonderful thing to be
living in such a stage of the world's
Drotrress when the accumulated intelli
gence, knowledge, affection and freedom
of the countless generations that have
gone are all ours, the source of great
nenenis ana oi greater lnspirBiiuuB.
Ought we not to be thankful for all
tbe good and great or the past, tor
every form of life which has toiled
and sacrificed and suffered, and whose
toil and sacrifice and suffering made
our lives easier, grander, happier.
Then, we ought to be very careful not
to charge God with unkindness or
cruelty when misfortune or sorrow ap
proaches, if that misfortune or sorrow
has been due to our own disobedience.
If a man destroys his life by overwork,
by dissipation, or abuse of any kind,
it is blasphemous to speak of God's
hand having been laid heavily upon
the affection of his friends: the cause
must be looked for in the man's own
disobedience. God should be acquit
ted and man convicted of many of the
crimes against society. j
Tha entertuinment course at the
Retreat opened last evening with a
dance. "
The Ruthianshavo decided to hold
a quilting, Dec. 12, to be followed by
a supper.
