With the very best ot feelings towards yonr respective organizations we propose to address a tew words to each individual of your order, also to the order as a body. The subject we propose to discuss is your method of purchasing goods of RETAIL DEALERS, for immediate use; and while we do not hesitate to say that we hope to derive some benefit from our efforts, we trust at the same time that we may benefit each individual mem ber of yonr order. Asa body, through a Committee, you make arrangements with cer tain dealers to supply the wants of each member of your society, stipulating that in consideration of the great amount of custom to be obtained from the order, that a discount of lO PER CENT, must be deducted from the “REGULAR PRICES” of the dealer. Your object in so doing is to obtain your goods at as low a figure as possible, or as near the manufacturer’s price as possible. THIS IS JUST AND WHOLLY RIGHT. But we ask DO YOU obtain your goods at as LOW a price as you should under the circumstances. Has a merchant that does business on a principle OTHERWISE THAN ONE PRICE, A FIXED OR STANDARD PRICE! Can you conscientiously say that you are not charged an EXTRA PRICE so as to enable the dealer to deduct the 10 PER CENT agreed upon! But you say we do not let the dealer know that we are a member of any society until after the “BARGAIN” is made, therefore we gain the 10 PER CENT. We beg to differ, and can prove what we assert. You may obtain the desired result THE FIRST TIRE, BUT BEWARE OF THE SECOND ! You are known and a price Is charged accordingly. We do not say this through malice or prejudice, but strictly in a pure business view. We Speak of What We Know! We are manufacturers ot clothing on an IMMENSE scale, probably no other concern in America manufactures and sells more clothing than we do in all of onr various stores scattered throughout this coun try. We buy our cloth for CASH of the mills, make it up into all grades ot clothing, and sell it directly to the CONSUMER AT A SMALL PER. CENTAGE ABOVE MANUFACTURING COST. At the prices we sell onr clothing we could not deduct 10 PER CENT from our prices -&.2<T1D LIVE I The tact that we own our Clothing at LESS prices than NINE TENTHS of other dealers, justifies ns in saying that “FANCY PRICES’* must be asked to admit of so great a deduction. WE CH1LLENGB EM BEER OF THE ORDERS To call and compare our GOODS and PRICES with the goods and prices you have seen at other stores. Our prices are marked on each garment in PLAIN FIGURES, and we defy any and all others, unless having equal facilities, to sell as GOOD CLOTHING for as low figures as we do. We will venture to say without fear ot contradiction, that there is not a single individual connected with the orders named but what will agree that the When carried out to the LETTER, is not only the MOST FAIR, but the MOST HONORABLE method of doing business. It guarantees EQUAL RIGHTS to all, either YOUNG or OLD. EXPERIENCED or INEXPE RIENCED BUYERS are sure ot obtaining their goods at a uniform price, and arc positive of -receiving the full value of their money in vested. This Fact Must he Apparent to all Fair Minded People. j Common goods are marked, in PLAIN FIGURES, a LOW PRICE. Medium goods at MEDIUM PRICES. First—lass goods at HIGHER PRICES. There is no chance for MISUNDERSTANDING or MISREPRESEN TATION, the purchaser receives EXACTLY what he pays for. And Under Our System, IF THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ENTIRELY SATISFIED WITH THEIR PURCHASE, OR IF THE GOODS DO NOT FIT. OR IF THEY FIND TH AT THE V CAN BUY THEM CHEAPER, RETURN THEMAT ONCE AND EXCHANGE FOR OTHERS OR RECEIVE YOUR MONEY. That we are not "MIDDLEMEN,” but MANUFACTURERS, and that the CONSUMER conies directly in contact with the Manufacturer when purchasing of ns. BE3AR IN MIND That we have the LARGEST stock of l BOYS' A! CHILDREN'S i to be ionnd cast of Boston, and that we shall always be happy to see I yon whether you wish to PURCHASE or LOOK, and that OUR PRICES ! are always lower than all other dealers. G. D. B.

Taking into consideration the character ot its vouchers, the history of its cures and the immense increasing demand,'Vegetine may be fairly en titled the leading medicine of the age. For scrofula in the blood, Vegetine is an in fallible remedy, and no person need suffer from humors, ulcers, and all diseases arising from impure blood, if Vegetine is used according to directions, There is not a case of scrofula in existence tbal Vegftine will not cure, provided, however, the vital functions have not lost their power of action, all that may be said to the contrary notwithstanding, Vegetine is pleasant to the taste, mild in its in fluence, and absolute in its action on disease, as the following unquestionable evidence will show. PAID NEARLY $400.00 ! ! _ January 2, 1875. H. R. Stevens, Esq: Dear Sir: When about six months old I was vac cinated. The parties who where vaccinated from the saiqie virus died from the humor. The humor spreairover me to such an extent that I was rolled In bran to prevent me from scratching my person. The disease finally settled in my head. I remained in this condition about twenty years, troubled all the time with sores breaking in my head anil dis charging corruption from my ear. At this time a small kernel appeared on my neck, gradually in creasing in size until a tumor formed of such im mense size I could see it by turning my eyes down ward. All this time I was taking various remedies for my blood without any substantial benefit. I then went to a prominent physician in Boston, who, during his treatment of six months, lanced the tumor eight times, which cost me nearly $400. This left me with a rough, aggravated sore, without at all liminishing the size of the tumor, and in a sicklv, feeble condition. 1 consulted another physician in Nn.t.tak’. whn. ftftpr limp uupppaiImI in sealing the sore without reducing the size. At this point 1 commenced to use Vegetine, through the sarnest persuasion of a friend. After 1 had taken ^his medicine about one week 1 experienced wonder ful sensations. My whole body seemed to be under going a radical change, until, finally, the tumor broke ind discharged frightful quantities. From this time t decreased in size until the hunch disappeared, hut ny neck still bears the ugly scars of the sore and lance. I am now healthy and strong and able to work, every day. I will also mention that I have been an acute suf ferer trom inflammatory rheumatism ever since I can remember, until commencing the use of Vegetine, vhen almost immediately all rheumatic pains ceased, this statement I volunteer for the purpose of bene iting other suffering humanity, and you will confer i favor by giving it as much publicity as thought proper. Very gratefully, O. M. SAVELS, Ashland, Mass. "What is Vegetine 1 It is a compound extracted from harks, roots and lerbs. It is nature’s remedy. It is perfectly harm ess trom any bad effect upon the system. It is nour shing and strengthening. It acts directly upon the >lood. It quiets the nervous system It gives you a rood, sweet sleep at night. It is a great panacea for iur aged fathers and mothers, for it gives them itrengih, quiets their nerves, and gives them nature’s weet sleep—as has been proved by many an aged jerson. It is the great Blood Purifier. It is a sooth ng remedy for our children. It has relieved and :ured thousands. It Is very pleasant to take; overy ihlld likes it.

Scarcely a day passes without some of my customers estifying to its merits on themselves or their friends.

The Republicans of the several cities and towns in the First District of Maine are invited to semi dele gates to a District Convention to be held in City Hall, Saco, on Thursday, May 25th, 1876, at 12 o’clock M„ tor the purpose of choosing two delegates to attend the Republican National Convention to be held at Cincinnati, on the 14th June next. The basis of representation will be as follows: Each city and town will be entitled to send one dele gate, and one additional for every seventy-five votes cast for Nelson Dinglev, Jr., at the Gubernatorial election of 1871; a majority traction of forty votes will be entitled to an additional delegate. Delegates are authorized to fill vacancies only with actual residents of the city or town they claim to rep resent. The District Committee will be in session in the ante room of the Hall at 10 o’clock A. M. for the re ception of credentials. The apportionment of delegates to the several cities and towns in the District, is as follows: Baldwin.3 Acton.3 Bridgton.8 Allred.3 Brunswick.5 Berwick.5 Cape Elizabeth.5 Biddeford.12 Casco.2 Buxton.5 Cumberland.2 Cornish.3 Deerlng. 5 Dayton.2 Falmouth.2 Eliot.4 Freeport.4 Hollis.3 Gorham.5 Kennebunk.4 Cray.3 Kennebunkport.3 Harpswell.2 Kittery.7 Harrison.2 Lebanon.3 Naples.2 Limerick.3 New Gloucester.3 Limington.3 North Yarmouth.2 Lyman. 3 Otisfleld.2 Newfield.3 Portland.26 North Berwick.3 Pownal.2 Parsonsfleld.3 Raymond.2 Saco. 9 Scarborough.2 Shapleigh. 3 Sebago.2 Sanford.3 Standish.4 South Berwick. .5 Westbrook ..5 Watftborough.4 Windham .4 Wells. 4 Yarmouth.,.3 York.5 THOS.

Who Bids Highest i The Democratic party in Connecticut con tains a number of men who would make creditable United States Senators. There are also living in that state several gentlemen who are known as independents or liberal Republicans who weuld fill the bill, promi nent among whom is Mr. David A. Weils. It would appear, therefore, that the decided Democratic majority in the legislature of the Nutmeg state might have no trouble in se lecting from a half dozen able men at their call, one who could serve the state creditably if not conspicuously in the United States Senate. Such, however, is not the fact. Neither of the gentlemen embraced in the class named i3 thought of by the Democratic legislature. Two men are striving for the seat, neither of whom has any qualification for the responsible place; and the latest re ports indicate that of these two aspirants, the one whose unfitness is most conspicuous will win the prize—for such under the circum stances the office has become in that state. Deprive these Senatorial aspirants of the one thing which now commends them to the Democratic legislature and every town in that state has from half a dozen to several scores of party men who would as soon be thought of in connection with the position as Messrs. Barnum and English. These gentle men are senatorial aspirants because they are rich. Separate either of them trom the mil lion or half million which they possess and the Democratic legislators of Connecticut would unite in a guffaw should either of these gentlemen solicit the position. They could not get a half dozen votes. In other words, tow money bags,one labelled Barnum and the other English, are the leading Democratic candidates far United States Senator in Con necticut. It is a question which of tbese money bags is the largest, or rather which money bag is willing to dispose of the greater part of himself to secure the coveted honor. It is now declared that Mr. Barnum is that bag. He has nominally held a seat in Con gress for several years and has achieved the name of the Great Absentee. English is a little better, for while in Congress during the war he had sufficient patriotism to vote tor war measures and the constitutional amend ment abolishing slavery. Both these gentle men have gone to Hartford with the Legisla ture. The senatorship is a commodity which will be disposed of to the highest bidder. This method of disposing ot seats in Con gress is not confined to Connecticut. Mark Twain once remarked “first get rich and then go to Congress.” Already we have had Stew art and now Jones and Sharon. Jones is a man of views. Sharon is in the Senate by vir tue of his great wealth. He has no fitness for the position and has shown his dislike of the same by returning to his mines, where he feels more at home. This tendency to regard wealth as the chief qualification for Congress is not confined to any section or either party; and it becomes a serious question how far the sentiment that a man must be worth hun dreds of thousands of dollars to go to Con gress can become a popular conviction with out producing wide-spread mischief if it does not result in positive danger to the Republic. Already the incentives to acquire wealth are sufficiently numerous and powerful in this country without having it understood that the highest political honors are reserved ex clusively for those who have a fortune. It is now a matter of regretful comment that so few men of first class talent and general cul ture participate in politics. When it comes about that mere wealth controls the selec tion of men to fill the highest legislative positions of the nation rather than brains and culture—that money bags and not men fill the halls of Congress, may It not be said— "III fares the land, to hastening Ills a prey Where wealth accumulates and meu decay?" The Republican convention in the , fourth district to choose delegates to Cin i cinnati is called to meet on the 24th inst. It is practically agreed among the Republicans of that district to send Capt. C. A. Boulelle, editor of the Whig, as the Penobscot dele gate, which is an excellent thing to do. From Piscataquis the delegate will be Dr. E. A. Thompson of Dover or J. B. Mayo Esq. of Foxcrolt. The report that the Cabinet has decided to notify the British government of the intention of the United States to abrogate the extradi tion treaty appears to be incorrect. Probably this government will take no action unti some demand is made by Great Britain fo the extradition of some fugitive, and then the treaty will be considered as abrogated. It is difficult for people on this side the Rocky Mountains, though it is easy enough for a Californian, to understand how the murder of a Chinaman is justified by the fact that he laughed at the idea of becomJnj a Christian. Yet that is the excuse m ade before the committee at Sac remento inve.itl gating the Chinese question. Jere Black seems to be in an awful hur ry to get in out of the storm. The genera opinion has been that he is the least subjec to lightning of any man in America. Sergeant Buzfcz of the Argus has com forward again with his sauce and ruiat ton chop theory of Mr. Blaine’s guilt. T1 \< old man is as funny as evetr. Ip Secretary Robeson is guilty of corrup tion why don’t the Democrats prove it in stead of making vague accusations, to sustain which they can bring forward no evidence? Those Michigan greenbackers must be a shabby crowd as well as a small one, if Moses Field is the most prominent man among them. Congress would do a decent and honest thing by passing over the residue of the Jap anese indemnity fund to that nation without further debate. Political News. South Carolina sends eight colored and six white delegates to Cincinnati. The Louisville Courier-Journal Is very hot for Tilden as the only man qualified to be a Moses for the Democratic party. The Philadelphia Item hears the cry of “Conkling and Don Cameron” from New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Mr. John G. Whittier is talked of for dele gate to Cincinnati from one of the Massachu setts districts. The Utica Herald insists that at least thir ty-seven of the seventy New York delegates to St. Louis prefer Seymour to Tilden. There is trouble among the Democrats of Oregon said to grow ont of the scheming of Gov. Glover to secure au election to the United States Senate. The Illinois Democracy put off electing their national delegates till just before their national convention, but now they are very decidedly set up for Judge Davis. The Chicago Journal notes that Mr. Caul field and Mr. Cate, who both hold seats in Congress, frauTlulenUy obtained, are the lead ers in investigating Mr. Bristow. The Boston Journal’s Washington special says that Mr. Riddle, a lawyer there, takes offence at the allusion by Mr. Blaine to his deceased son-in-law, James W. Knowlton, and has written a letter in which he declares that he shall investigate the matter further. Some of the Democrats in Congress want to wind up the session aud get away from Washington before their party makes many more criminal blunders, and gentlemen of that way of thinking will put their heads to gether, and see if they can work ont a plan for adjourning by the 1st of July. The Chicago Journal, in speaking of the resignation of Boughton the Confederate vivin vt tuv iivuac iuuuiuj vuuiuiiucu, auu ot the men chosen from the South for posi tions, thinks the Democrats of the House must have selected their officers out ot some Southern penitentiary. There are eight counties in Ohio which have sent delegates to the State Convention pledged to William Allen. The Thurman movement has not made much of a show yet. The Enquirer of Cincinnati says the men who go to the National Convention in favor of Thurman will all vote for Tilden, but the men who go pledged to William Allen ‘•will’ not vote for Tilden, nor for a man of that kidney—if it takes all summer.” Current Notes. That last speech of Blaine’s was a positive cruelty. It leaves Sammy Smart and the rest of the skunk-hunter? all in the horse pond.—N. Y. Tribune. As matters are now conducted, the Demo cratic House i3 a national slander mill; and Republicans on the floor should take the op portunity to hold up its machinery and its products to universal scorn and execration.— Gen. Boynton. Dr. Holmes says: “We count the broken lyres that rest.” But were the doctor to go to Washington and undertake to count the blasted liars that don’t rest he would strike for more wages—or for home—in less than two hours.—Norristown Herald. How Clymer & Co„ opened their eyes and then took to their heels, when the spectre of the ante-bellum Southern postmaster stalked into the House yesterday, and in sepulchral voice demanded pay for his last quarter’s ser vices!—IV. Y. Com. Advertiser. It seems to be a good time for somebody to father any further charges there may be against Mr. Blaine, and a good time for po liticians who are caucusing for some other candidate to stop insinuatiug charges which they do not dare to father and are not pre pared to prove.—N. Y. Tribune. The exploits of the House committee in “investigating” Mr. Davenport remind us of the adventurous sportsman who went out with his dog to hunt a wolf. He lost sight ot the chase, and made inquiry of a passer-by. He was informed that the dog and the wolf when last seen were close together, with the dog a little ahead.—N. Y. Herald. In the early days of the scandal there was a loud outcry against the President, the At torney general and other persons for discour aging witnesses and protecting the criminal After all was it Clymer who really shielded Belknap? This is an inquiry better worth making than some of the investigations in which the bouse of representatives is en gaged.—New York Evening Post. Without doubt there is a gang of bummers at Washington who are anxious to “testify,” as mere always is aruunu a great ponce court. But most of this manufactured testi mony is against those officials whom it is for the manifest interest of rascals to break down. The public are not likely to be de ceived into giving credence to such witnesses as against such men.—Springfield Republi can. The nomination of Mr. Tilden would al first strike the country as a strong one. Bu it would soon prove very weak. From the hour of his appearance in the field to th« hour of election, he would be subjected to a raking fire which would riddle and shattei him. His many scandalous railioad opera tions would be blazoned everywhere, and th< result cannot be doubtful. The great fight would be in this State, and with a New Tor candidate against him, he would inevitably be beaten. We rejbice at his candidacy. Albany Journal. The Cleveland Herald, in a recent article entitled “The Campaign of Slander,” says: “What the tactics of the Democracy will b< in the coming Presidential campaign is suffi ciently indicated by the course pursued tow ard the candidates for Republican nomina tion. It is to be a campaign of slander am abuse. Lies are to take the place of facts and mud throwing will supplant argument The Repubtican candidate is to be held up ti execration as a malefactor, whose plao should he in the penitentiary instead ot thi White nouse.” These investigating Democrats arc doinj more against themselves than against others Their investigation is a mere hunt lor some thing that cau be used against the Republi can party and prominent Republicans. The; have nothing else to aid them in the comlnj Presidential canvass. They dare not show the actual spirit and aim of their party They arc in trouble when impulsive South ern Democrats are moved to “speak out ii meeting.” Their only resource Is to “inves tigate” Republicans. So far they have dont no more barm than kill off Secretary Beik nap and George H. Pendleton, for whom w< do not mourn. For the rest, their opera tions have tended chiefly to kill off them selves.—Worcester Spy. What is left of the story is this: That thi Union Pacific company did take some bonds and that it is alleged that somebody toll somebody else that Mr. Blaine got the moDe; paid by the Union Pacific road for them. H brings all possible proof that he did nol which satisfies the only possible interest tb public ever had in the affair. To find ou who did sell them is merely a matter of im pertinent curiosity, not in the least degre affecting the main question, which has beei | settled. We do not know whether the Unloi Pacific company will be willing to gratify th extraordinary thirst for knowledge of mei who act on the theory that an accused per son can only be acquitted when somebod, ’ else has been convicted of the oflense charge ' against him. We hope, however, that th t company will make no objections, and tha the whole affair will be explained as far 9 any witness can testify.—Boston Advertiser. » Since there seems to be some difficulty 0 - the part of the reformers in understands why Mr. Blaine, though once a school teacl er, should now be in Independent clrcun stances, it may be proper to explain that bn made his money in business as other honest men do. As an example of the methods em ployed, we may give the fact* of one inrat ment made by him, which was the founda tion of his prosperity. Mr. Blaine, as Is gen erally known, is a native of Pennsylvania. While on a visit there, in 1861, he saw a piece of mining land about to be sold at m ecutor’s sale. He had confidence in the wi pe of the land, and at the sale be purchased it,‘°r *21,000, borrowing most of the money with which to make the payment. The war came on- the mines proved productive, and Mr. Blame s property proved to be worth hai a million dollars.
