j H E greatest of English historians, Macaulay, and one of the most brilliant writers of
the present century, has said: “The history of a country is best told in a record of the
lives of its people.” In conformity with this idea tlie Portrait and Biographicai
Record 0f this county has been prepared. Instead of going to musty records, and
taking therefrom dry statistical matter that can be appreciated by but few, oui
corps of writers have gone to the people, the men and women who have, by theii
enterprise and industry, brought the county to rank second to none among those
comprising this great and noble State, and from their lips have the story of their life
struggles. No more interesting or instructive matter could be presented to an intelligent public. In this volume will be found a record of many whose lives are worthy the
imitation of coming generations. It tells how some, commencing life in poverty, by
industry and economy have accumulated wealth. It tells how others, with limited
advantages for securing an education, have become learned men and women, with an
influence extending throughout the length and breadth of the land. It tells of ...

On the 4 rolls of this microfilm publication are reproduced the
records from the decimal file of the Department of State, 1910-29,
that relate to internal affairs of Ethiopia (Abyssinia). The records
consist of loose documents. They are mostly instructions to and despatches from diplomatic and consular officials; the despatches are often accompanied by enclosures such as diplomatic notes exchanged,
pamphlets, and newspapers. Also included in these records are notes
between the Department of State and foreign diplomatic representatives in the United States, memoranda prepared by officials of the Department, and correspondence with officials of other Government departments and with private firms and individuals. The Lists of Docu- *
ments or "purport sheets" reproduced on Roll 1 give brief abstracts
of the documents reproduced in this microcopy and serve as a finding
aid to the documents themselves. The arrangement of the entries on
these lists corresponds to the arrangement of the documents in the
file.

Since 1910 the central files of the Department of State have been
grouped and arranged by a decimal system of subject classification.

The decimal file initially consisted of nine primary classes numbered
0 through 8, each covering a broad subject area. Under Class 8, Internal Affairs ...

The Secretary’s office has received so many suggestions con­
cerning the contents of the State Register and Manual th a t it
seemed wise to make a complete study of the m aterial usually
published. Inasmuch as this Manual is used constantly by
Town Clerks, R egistrars of Voters, and newspapermen, they
seemed the logical people to consult. Meetings were held with
a committee of the Town Clerks’ Association and a committee
of Legislative reporters. A letter was sent to every Town Clerk
and every R egistrar of Voters, asking for their suggestions.
There was a complete unanim ity of opinion th a t the list of
Notaries Public and Election S tatistics should be restored, and
th a t the photographs and biographical m aterial of the State
Officers should be included. Many completely new features are
included in this issue. To list a few of them, we have included
the dates of elections for the Towns, with the list of Town Officers,
office hours and location of the Town Clerks and Judges of P ro ­
bate, and an alphabetical list of all Town Clerks.

dodging in and out of the State of Alabama.” This latter
evidence was, upon motion of the State’s attorney, excluded
from the jury, against the objection and exception of de­
fendant.
The evidence excluded manifestly tended, if the jury
should believe it true, to establish an excuse which the law
allowed, for appellant’s carrying a pistol concealed about his
person; to-wit, that he had “ good reason to apprehend an
attack.” It was not objected that the fact of prowling and
dodging about, without employment, was not sufficiently
proved by legal testimony; but the evidence appears to have
been ruled out on the ground, that the circumstances proved
were not relevant. In this we think the circuit judge erred.
We do not pass upon the question, whether there was
error or not in the charges of the circuit judge to the jury,
or in his refusals to charge as requested; because, in some
respects, they were certainly not erroneous; and in those in
which there may be error, it was not so specified as to call
the attention of the judge and the adverse^counsel to the

THE THREE MOUNTAIN ROAD.
[OWE]
Centuries of observation have taught man that countless
paths stretch through space for the convenience of innu­
merable worlds that move with inconceivable velocity, yet,
with perfect safety and with such quiet that “there is no voice
nor language their speech is not heard.” He has learned
that our world travels on a way of its own in its annual jour­
ney around the sun, bringing the constant fulfilling of the
promise “while the earth remaineth, seedtime and har­
vest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and
ays
night shall not cease.” These are the wT that Jehovah
hath made for the moving of His creations and they continue
in use only at His pleasure. As we look upward on any
clear night we behold the Milky Way, which seems to en­
circle the universe with its myriads of worlds, so far away
that even the power of the greatest telescope can discern no
more than a mere thread of light. This is a path of God's
creation that we may admire with awe but can neither fathom
nor understand.
In all his history man has had an undying desire to ...

Nearly ten years ago a history of old Kittery was begun by Dr. William
B. Lapham, encouraged by John F. Hill, now Governor of Maine. Dr.
Lapham collected much useful material and outlined some chapters of the
proposed work. All his material has been utilized, but no line of this book
was written by him. His arrangement and style of expression could not
be made to harmonize with the author’s plan and language, yet due credit
is cheerfully accorded to the memory of Maine’s leading local historian,
whose town histories and historical essays are well known.

The death of Dr. Lapham caused his material to be laid aside a few
years. About three years ago, by the encouragement of Governor Hill,
the author was induced to begin anew the history of old Kittery and her
families. The sources of information are sufficiently pointed out in footnotes and the preface to the genealogical notes. The many helpers have
been indicated in like manner.

This work was begun with no subscription list, and its financial success
rests upon its own merits. The aim has been to write such a book as the
many descendants of old Kittery families would ...

T he objection urged of old time against novels, that they give false views of life,
does not apply to Mr. Trollope’s books. They are characterized by a fidelity to
Nature, and a skill in seizing and transferring her salient points, which make
them strike home to the consciousness of his reader, and commend themselves to
his judgment. Without much sentiment, or ideality, or poetry, there is a healthy
common sense which goes straight to the mark.
Mr. Trollope’s characters are drawn with an outline firm, bold, strong. His
side-thrusts at some of the lies which pass current in society are very keen.—Bos­
ton Congregationalist.

 TO TH E READER.
I n the preparation of the following pages for publication, there
has been little more required, than to select and arrange the
matter, from the copious and long-kept diary of my late beloved
brother. In them will be found depicted, in simplicity and selfabasement, the dealings of the Lord with one, whose main de­
sire from early life, next to the salvation of his soul, was to
be qualified for the service of his Divine Master, and to be rightly
employed in his Church.
As the reader traces his growth in Grace, he can form his own
judgment of the stature he attained in Christ Jesus his Lord.
It will be seen, that in common with other faithful servants of a
crucified Master, he was often baptized into suffering and death ;
that he might be prepared to visit the oppressed Seed, to par­
take, in his measure, of the afflictions to be filled up for the
body’s sake, which is the Church, and to experience in himself
the work of sanctification, and ...

The slightest examination of the following pages must
be sufficient to convince every one that it has been constructed on a different principle from any of the numerous biographies of eminent men which have recently
issued from the press, and partakes in many parts more
of the character of general history than personal narrative. This plan was not adopted without consideration,
and the reason of it was this :—

That the principal object of history is the narrative
of events—of biography, the delineation of character,—is
a common observation, which, in the general case, is undoubtedly well-founded. But in its application to particular instances it requires considerable modification.
If the interest of a character consists in the genius by
which its productions have been distinguished, or the
vigour by which its thoughts have been expressed, no
narrative of surrounding events is required, and any
such would be misplaced. Every one would regret a
page given to contemporary events in the biography of
Michael Angelo, Tasso, Newton, or Johnson; but it is vi

S O M E W H A T detailed sketch of the organization and
growth of this Society appeared in the first volume of
its “ Records,” in the form of a report from the then Record­
ing Secretary, under date of J u l y 22d, 1886.*
Following the example thus set, this report is respectfully
submitted as the continuation of a narrative, the first instal­
ment o f which has been already published. A t the abovementioned date the Society had passed safely through the
purely experimental and formative stage, and had become
established on a firm basis. T o parody a cant phrase, there
is nothing so stimulating as success, and it is needed only that
the members should realize that their efforts had so far proved
successful to induce them to continue the work in hand with
renewed zeal and activity.
Prior to September, 1886, all business had been transacted
at the regular and special meetings o f the S o c i e t y ; the regular
meetings being held quarterly, and special meetings being
called as often as business would require. Hence meetings
of the Societv were held at least once and sometimes twice a
month. ...
