Accordingly he purchased an ounce of hydrate of chloral in BostoD, which he took on the steamer.

To the Editor of the Press: A delegation from the Denmark Reform Club came down here Sunday, April 23d, and held a meeting. To the surprise and joy of all, many of our young men of intemperate habits, unsolicited, came forward and signed the iron clad pledge. A Reform Club was or ganized the next Tuesday evening. More than one hundred signed the pledge, and still they come We have a very efficient elub composed mostly of men who have never identified them selves with any temperance organization nor have heen considered temperance men. The whole town is alive upon the question. The cider sellers are^trembling; in fact some have closed up and like Davy Crockett’s coon have come right down. LastSuaday the club, ac companied by nearly a hundred friends, went to West Baldwin and held a meeting. The Methodist church was filled, and it is safe to say that there never was a temperance meeting in that town so enthusiastic and so thoroughly in earnest. The sad stories,the fearful tempta tions, the firm resolves, the impassioned ap peals,the entire reliance upon God for help, im pressed the vast audience with the genuineness of the reform and the unmistakable sincerity of the reformers. Tbs interest was at fever heat when it was announced that a drunken man was at the door and wanted to sign the pledge. “Let him come in” was passed, and a reeling, haggard, intoxicated fellow being was led up to the stand, and amid cheers, tears and rejoicings, he placed his signature to the iron clad. It melted the whole assembly to tears. It was an appeal too powerful to be re sisted, and men, women and children rushed to the stand and sixty determined citizens of that town wrote their names, a la John Hancock. The club will meet there again Tuesday even ing, May 231, to organize a reform club. Hiram, May 23,1876. M. K. M. Maine Business Notes. ilr. Frank S.

Indications of sickness should at once be at tended to. Fatal d isease3 may be caused by allow ing the bowels to become constipated, and the system to remain in a disordered condition, until the disor der has time to develop itself. An ounce? of preven tion is worth a pound of cure, is an old and truthful saying. Therefore, wc advise all who aro troubled with the complaints new very prevalent—headache, indigestion, disordered liver, want of appetite, nau sea. or feverish skin,to take, without delay, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills. We know of no remedy so harm less and decisive in its action. It at oncestiikcs at the root of the disease and produces a healthy tone to the system. People never need suffer from any dis ease arising from a disordered condition of the liver if they would take this excellent medicine when they feel the first indications of the malady. Families leaving home for the summer months should take three or four boxes ot these pills with them. They have an almost instantaneous effect. They will re lieve the patient of headache in one or two hours, and will rapidly cleanse the liver of surrounding bile, and will effectually prevent a bilious attack.
