Mr. Ripley, the City Missionary, i •dangerously ill at his residence in Decring. Mr. O. 1*. Weston, a graduate of Colby ii 1872, has commenced the practice of law at22 Washington street, Bolton The West fluxion Mystery. Au investigation into the facts of tho West Buxton or Moderation Village mystery which was alluded to in these columns Saturday, shows that there are not very strong reasons to suspect that a murder has beeu committed, though a large number of the residents of the | town are still of that opinion. Tho facts are simply these: Wednesday morning considera ble blood was found on the floor of tho cover ed bridge and on the side of the window there wss the imprint of a bloody hand, while below on the granite abutment was a large clot of blood. There were also some evidences of a struggle or of a persou’s having beeu dragged along through the bridge to the window. Several persons testified that they heard the re' port of a pistol on the bridge the previous even ing and one man said he met two men on the bridge at about 9 o'clock, and that the firing occurred soon after. The story that Mr. Tar box turned two tramps out of his barn, and that they went across the bridge swearing at each other and that soon after tlie|firin2 occur red,is pronounced by him totally untrue.No per son is missing so far as known ;uo article of dress has been found in the river. Some of the blood is in the hands of State Assayer Bartlett, but he has not yet decided whether or not it is hu man blood. Many of the citizens think the whole affair is the work of boys who procured a hog’s or calf’s blood and sprinkled it on the bridge simply for the purpose of creatiug a sen sation. Some believe that the boys were insti gated by older persons who had in view to frighten the town into lighting the bridge. Which evor is the correct explanation it is cer tain the affair has created much excitement in the town and still forms tho prominent topic of discussion. Death of a Well Known Merchant.— Mr. .Tames Freeman, the well known oyster merchant, died at his residence on High street, yesterday afternoon. The deceased has been engaged in the wholesale oyster business in this city for about twenty-five years. He was born in Wellflcet, Cape Cod, and when quito young moved to Portsmouth, N. H,, where he commenced the oyster business. He had but a small capital wt-ich he had borrowed from a relative, but by strict attention to business he was soon able to repay the borrowed money and conduct the business on his own money. About twentv-five vears aco he came to this citv and opened an oyster house in a brick block on Fed eral street, near where the Advertiser office is now situated. The fire of ’GG destroyed the block and Mr. Freeman was a heavy loser thereby. After the fire he opened a large wholesale oyster house on Union wharf, where he has conducted a large business ever since. He can justly be called the originator of the wholesale oyBter business in this city, and since he has done more business than all the other firms] combined. He was a wideawake busi ness man and was always prompt in the pay ment of his bills. He employed a large num ber of men during his business here, and al ways insisted on paying them off every Satur day night. Those who have had basiness with Mr. Freeman pronounce him an honest,straight forward business man. Mr. Freeman joined Strawberry Bank Lodge Of Odd Fellows while residing in Portsmouth, and always retained his membership. He was also a member of one of the Encampments and a member of the Belief Association. He was a member of Portland Lodge and Blanque fort Commandery of Masons. He has been un well for about a year, and for several weeks has been confined to his house with Bright’s dis ease of the kidneys, from which disease he died yesterday, at 57 years of age. The funo ral will take place tomorrow afternoon, and it is expected the Masons and Odd Fellows will attend in a body. Sacred Concert.—The sacred concert at Chestnut street church last evening was a very pleasant affair and the church was crowded. The programme was mnch the same as that of the anniversary exercises Thursday evening. After an organ voluntary the chorus of Sab bath school children sang “We meet you once again,” with organ accompaniment. Mr. Chandler, who was present, assisted with the cornet. The effect of the combination of voices with the instruments was very fine. Bev. Mr. Baldwin read from the scriptures and offered prayer. Mrs. Baker sang “Flee as a bird to the mountain” in her usual pleasing style. Mrs. Cole sang “Not a sparrow falleth” much to the satisfaction of the entire audi ence. “Consider the Lilies,” by Mrs. Files was rendered finely. Owing to a severe cold Mr. J. B. Coyle was unable to sing alone. A quartette of male voices composed of Messrs. Everett, Davis, W. and A. Cole, sang several selections.during the evening. Dr. Files pre sided at the organ with his usual good taste. The concert was very appropriate to the Sab bath and every part of it was interesting. Forgery.-Saturday morning Marahal Bridges arrested William Costello, charged with forgery. Costello, who is an agent for Willard, Kimball & Co., of Boston, forwarded them an order purporting to have been signed by Mrs. M. Burton, 17 Clark street, for a fam ily Bible valued at ®18, for which she was to pay ®2 down, and ®3 monthly until the sum was made up. Costello then pawned the Bible for $1, Mrs. Burton denies the signature, and furthermore Costello gave a Bible to the pro prietor of his boarding house for his board, abd has distributed several others in different places.

Herrimau, who lives in Searsport and is master of the ship City of Brooklyn that hails from Belfast, left San Francisco about eight months ago for Liverpool. When about eight days out the ship sprung a bad leak and the captain with great ingenuity and perseverance rigged extra pumps so that his ship was able to reach St. Thomas. The underwriters having learned the condition of their vessel from a passing ship had sect to St. Thomas a steamer with a steam pump and engineer. These were taken on board and the remainder of the voyage completed in safety. The underwriters, as a 'testimonial of their appreciation of Captain Herriman’s perseverance and skill presented him with a splendid gold chronometer watch valued at $o00 and also £1000. On the Inside of the watch case is the following inscription: “Presented to Capt. H. N. Herriman by the underwriters of the ship City of Brooklyn ic token of their appreciation of his skill and ability iu bringing his disabled ship into Liver pool.’’ 1 The captain regards the generous present as an encouragement to himself and other master: i to persevere and use all possible exertions in ’ t*10 reservation of the vessels and cargoes en trusted to them. Tlic Goodall Eutcrprise. The Mills UI Sanford Corner—A Miraeli of Brains, Industry and Enersy-Whcie the Cap-robes are Made—An Enterprise Complete in Itself, etc , etc. Ten years ago Sanford Corner contained a couple of stores doing a limited business, a few dwellings that had evidently witnessed better times, and on the magnificent watei power of the Mousatn river at that jioinl were a grist mill, a saw mill and a small woolen factory—all beariug these marks which too plainly indicate that there are nc better days coming. In short, Sanford Cornel was just like almost a hundred other little vil lages near water powers and cross-roads which have lost their trade and life by the change in the channels of trade and travel incident to the building of railways. Bat better things were in store for Sanford Corner. Mr. Thomas Goodall, a man of English birth, had for years in that country and here, if we mistake not, been engaged in the exportation from England to this country of an article known as “lap robes.” A few years since hut comparatively few of the article were in use in this country. Now they are found in all good carriages and to a great extent are taking the place of buffalo robes in sleighs. Mr. Goodall after studying the subject came to the conelusian that a bet ter lap-rebe than that made by English manu facturers could be made in this country and sold at a much less price. After looking about the country, Mr. Goodall, with that rare judg ment which has characterized the management of this business, fixed upon the safe, constant and ample water power which Mousam river affords at Sanford Corner, as the locality where he should plant his thriving industry. It could he no haphazard work. He would have to compete with the established reputa tion, experience, skill and cheap labor of Eng land* In this country he had no one to pattern after. No workmen skilled in the production of this specialty wero to be found in this coun try. In fact Mr. Goodall had to begin at the beginning. His task was a most difficult one, but the result has proved that Brains, Industry and Energy have triumphed. As Mr. Goodall at first decidsd, he was able at tile first to put into the market a much better article of lap robe than the English maker could do. The tariff was in his favor, but years ago, before the tariff, when materials of all kinds were the cheapest, the English manufacturer’s lap robe Cost the Yankee purchaser quite four times as much as Mr. Goodall's larger and much better product sells for in the open market now. As soon as Mr.Gocdall commenced to manufacture, the British producer auu importer began to re duce his price, but despite the disadvantages under which he has labored, with such protec tion as the tariff afforded, he has held the field and has practically driven his foreign competi tors therefrom. If the tariff was repealed, the British (trader could doubtless greatly em barrass Mr. Goodall’s industry by flooding the market with an inferior production. Should the foreigner be able to compel Mr. G to shut down his mills and thereby drive him out of the business, he would have the market to himself again and would be tempted to restore the old prices he obtained years ago wheu the cost of production was no greater than at pres ent. Indeed, in the case of Mr. Goodall’s en terprise, it does look as though the tariff had a tendency to encourage a competition in this country, which has not only transferred the in dustry to our own people with all the advan tages derived from the employment of capital and skilled labor, but has actually reduced the price of a better article in the proportion of three to one if not more. At present the firm, which is composed of Thomas Goodall, his sons, George B. and E. M., with Messrs: S. C. Chase & Co., (who sell the goods) 12!) Washington street, Boston, have two mills engaged exclusively in the manu facture of lap-robes. They employ over 100 people in these mills, the greater part of whom receive high wagos. At present the greater part of the workmen aro natives ofSauford and adjoining towns who have learned the art. They make good workmen. The wool is all im ported. It is not produced in this country. It is long and coarse and very much resembles hair, and is a variety of the Angora. The ma chinery for spinning and weaving is the most improved used in the manufacture of woolens. When the cloth comes from the Isom it isn’t a fine looking material, aud very little resembles the beautiful goods which have made the name of Goodall and the Sanford mills familiar in the dry goods market of the country. After the cloth is printed plain, it is colored. This is done by means of stamps made on wooden blocks like type. It is in the designing of these stamps that much depends. The pattern has much to do with the sale of the goods. The colors are put upon the stamps and the cloth being on a long table, the stamp is placed where it is wanted and the colors fixed upon the cloth by pounding. Sometimes a single pattern requires nearly a dozen differ ent stamps. None but careful and experienced workmen are entrusted with this work. Bun gling in printing would ruin everything. New patterns are got out every year. The firm have just got out their styles for the ensuing season. They are varied, to suit the fancy of the va rious purchasers. The most striking patterns and those which exhibit the greatast skill, are those manufactured for the Centennial. The mixing of the colors is undoubtedly the secret of the business. It requires skill and expe rience. This department of the business is now in charge of Mr. George B. Goodall, who has displayed a remarkable genius for land scape painting. To him is intrusted this im portant branch, and the late patterns of goods indicate his excellence. The finishing comes after the printing, and here,too, the same skill ful workmanship is displayed. The colors will not work out for all the goods are rinsed in hot water. The Goodalls, father and sons, are born man ufacturers. The young men bid fair to become a3 famous as the father, who, now about fifty years of age, has not only made a fortune un aided, but has given the country a prosperous industry and Is so using his wealth and oppor tunities of doing good as to entitle him to be regarded as a public benefactor. The Mousam Itiver Mill was started a year If k, nnrxn.l kn /.nn C «l. --*1 _ T It Goodall, and Mr. Amos Guernsey and others. This mill is devoted exclusively to the manu fccture of woolen plush, both plain and crimp ed. This mill gives employment to about 75 people, and uses 2500 pounds o£ wool each working day. The owners are building a small machine shop and a large building tor slorago and other purposes. One featuie of the management is worthy of note. The concern makes all of its own ma chinery except looms. If a new machine is required for any purpose, some one about the establishment is equal to its planning and con struction. The Goodalls are all clever in this direction. Tl.ey keep three or four skillful machinists and by this policy save thousands annually. They purchase nothing which they can manufacture. They manufacture the boards used iu makiDg their boxes, and make the same by machinery. They purchase a lot of land, cut the timber and saw the boards in their own mill. The goods of the Mousam River Mill alone will require 100,000 feet of boards tor packing boxes this year. The pay. roll of the two firms is from $6000 to $7000 per month. Mr, Goodali ba3 not devoted himself so ex clusively to business that be has not had time to attend to other matters. His residence aud grounds are already among the most at tractive in the state, and he takes a deep inter est in the welfare of the people about him. He contributes largely to every public object. He owns quite a number of comfortable tenements ia the village, which be rents to his employes at low rates. He owns a hall which would be a credit to a larger town, and this is devoted to the culture and amusement of the village as often as required. It is fitted up with a stage for theatrical performances, which the sous aud other young meu of the village occasionally give. The depressed season has not yet reached the Sanford enterprise. Every man interested puts brains aud energy into the business, and con sequently they do not have to build sheds in which to store their unsold goods. In fact, they make to order only. From a few houses upon which little paint were expended, the village is now made up of fine dwelling houses and stores full of fresh looking goods. There are no loafers. The thrift of Mr. Goodall has been communicated to the community. Long may it thrive, and success to the Goodalls. May their tribe increase in Maine.

Sold by druggists everywhere. aprlleoillw Dr. Schenck’a Standard Ucmedie*. The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup, Schenck’s Sea Wefd Tonic, and Schenck’s Mandbake Pills, and, if taken before the lungs arc destroyed, a speedy cure effected. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenck, of Philadelphia, owes his uuiivalled success in the treat ment ot pulmonary diseases. The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs; nature throws it oil by an easy expectora tion, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it off, the patient has rest and the ungs begin to heal. To enable the Pulmonic Syrup to do this Schenck’s Mandrake Pills and Schenck’s Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse tbe stomach and liver. Sehenck’s Mandrake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstructions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and tho liver is soon relieved. Schenck’s Sea Weed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative; the alkali of which it is composed mixes with the food and prevents souting. It assists the digestion by toning up the stomach to a healthy couilition, so that the food and the Pulmonic Syrup will make good blood; then the lungs heal, and the patient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to cousult Dr. Schenck, either per sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office comer ot Sixth and Arcii Sts.. Philadelphia, every Monday. Scheuck’s medicines are sold by all druggist throughout the country. J?11 mhteod2in3dp&wsu NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
