Second-Hand
Pianos
Money spent on a piano should be in the
nature of an investment. A piano used but a
short time is "second-hand. Second-hand
pianos are not saleable at anything like a fair
price unless they were good pianos when they
were new. Money spent for any but good
pianos is not well invested as their value de
preciates so rapidly. We sell no pianos that we
cannot recommend as good investments and
we make the terms so easy that it's just like
putting money in the bank. Let us tell you
about it. If you do not want to buy an Estey
we can sell you some less expensive make but
the Estey is a good investment.

P, W. CLEMENT, CANDIDATE
WILL ACCEPT NOMINATION FOR
GOVERNORSHIP IN 1906.
Announces His Position Remedy for
Present Stat, of i Business Affairs
Must Be Found Savings Used for
Internal Improvements.
Peiclval V. Clemt-nt of Rutland,
who waa a ciinilhliiie for "ovt-nmr In
J90U on the Locul-Oiitioii-LlceiiHe tick
et, has authorized the publication of
the following letter, announcing that
he will be a candldute for the gov
ernorship before the next republican
state convention:
To the republican voters and citizens
of Vermont:
I huve been axked to be a candldute
for the nomination for the office of
governor at the next republican state
convention. The time seems now at
hnnd when It Is fulr to my friends to
state my position. I answer the ques
tion, Yes. I am a candldute.
I did not cure to enter Into a pure
ly personal canvas for the governor
ship, but If my views on state affairs,
which are fairly well known, meet
with the approval of the voters, I
should consider It an honor to be se
lected to carry them Into effect so far
as a Vermont governor can.
As a result of discussion and In
vestigation we are upon the eve of a
complete change In the business meth
ods of our state departments. If this
change Is made properly, retrench
ment In state expenses and a better
administration of stute affairs will na
turally follow. No private corpora
tion would for a 11 on-.ent think of
adopting the Vermont plan of trans
acting Its business. When this change
was first suggested It was ridiculed in
some quarters, hut now the question
is how best to effect a remedy.
The large amount which would be
annuully saved to the state when a
proper system of purchase, supervis
ion and accounting Is Inaugurated,
will be available for Internal improve
ments, and I know of none which can
be made with greater benefit to all
classes of citizens than a system of
permanent roads, opening up our
mountain regions to the main thor
oughfares of travel.
j believe the local option license
law, which prohibits when the people
so vote, or brings In a revenue If the
people so elect, should be retained and
perfected.
It is not my ambition or purpose
to build up or foster any political ma
chine; but. If I am nominated and
alerted. I shall undertake to give the
state a business administration anu
the taxpayer a square deal.

Mains Men Buy Local Enterprise.
Three local men, Kenneth W. Suther
land of (his city and Senator George E.
Morrison and Clarence W. Place of
Haco, have purchased practically the
entire Interest of the Peel's Food com
pany of Brattleboro, Vt., and will en
gage extensively In the manufacture of
the products of this company, retain
ing the factory In the Vermont city.
One of the owners of the original busi
ness retains a small Interest and will
remain at Brattleboro and personally
superintend the details of manufacture,
although Mr. Sutheralnd will manage
the business.
A comiwny has been organized and
incoriHiratecl and the officers are:
President, Clarence W. Place; treas
urer, Kenneth W. Sutherland. The
capital stock is 125.000.
Mr. Sutherland will eo to Brattle
boro this week to take charge of the
business and will later remove and
lake up his residence there.
On a recent trip through Vermont
Mr. Southerland learned something of
Peel's Food company and going to
Brattleboro made an investigation,
satisfying himself that its products
were in every way all that was claim
ed for them and that with proper man
agement and good financial backing
the business could be made a profitable
one. He met and had a talk with" the
largest owner and manager of the busi
ness, with the result that he made a
proposition for the business which was
finally accepted.
Upon his return home Mr. Suther
land laid the matter before Senator
Morrison and Mr. Place, and they at
once wired to Brattleboro, closing the
deal. Since then the business has been
transferred to them, the Brattleboro
man retaining a small Interest.
Mr. Sutherland was very enthusias
tic In speaking of the prospects of the
business, expressing his belief that
with extensive advertising and good
management it will prove to be a rich
ly paying investment. The products
are to be manufactured in large quan
tities and put on the market In every
state In the United States, as well as
In Canada, and it will be handled by
practically all retailers who deal In
such goods. The new company Is to en
gage in an extensive campaign of ad
vertising and will at once proceed to
enlarge Its factory and Increase the
output. Biddeford. Me., Record, Sept.

A pretty outdoor wedding was cele
