HANNIBAL HAMLIN CENTENARY
Maine to Erect Memorial to ' One of
Her Greatest Statesmen.
If Hannibal Hamlin, once vice presi
dent of the United States, bad lived
till Aug. 27, 1909, he would have been
hundred years old. This circum
stance has ever been kept in mind by
the people of Oxford county,. Me., and
particularly of Paris Hill, the scene of
his birth. His centennial will be mark
ed by the dedication of a memorial
tablet on the centennial anniversary.
The citizens have provided an im-
tnense bowlder which was selected by
committee from others on the land :
of Hiram Heald, lying south of the
village and formerly the Hamlin pas
ture lands. Loren B. Merrill, chair
man of the committee In charge of the
bowlder, had a long bunt for the right
kind. It is six feet square and three
feet thick. It required ten draft horses
to haul the bowlder to its present posi-
tiou. In front of the old Hamlin man
sion, where a foundation naa Deen
prepared for it and a terrace put about
it. On this rock the memorial tablet
will be placed. . . .v.
Miss Julia Frances Carter, daughter
of Mrs. Mary B. Carter, will unveil the
bowlder. Miss Carter and her sister
are the only living descendants of
Hannibal Hamlin who now own . a
home at Paris Hill.
The speakers will be United States
Senator Eugene Hale. ex-Governor
Long of Massachusetts and Governor
Fernald of Maine. Ex-Governor Long
was invited to deliver an oration upon
this occasion, but told the committee
that he thought it would be much bet
ter to have a few short speeches than
one long one. and 'they hare acted upon

between these Ederheimer-Stein clothes that are made
especially for you and other kinds that are sometimes sold you.
Too bad you can't see these clothes alongside some of the
makes you're shown when you go to buy a suit. But we don't
have the ordinary kinds and you won't find garments of this
make anywhere else.
Three and a quarter yards of cloth
is usually supposed to be enough for a
suit. Ederheimer, Stein & Co., put 334,
sometimes more, into theirs.
It takes this much to make a coat
roomy and full chested, to give it plenty
of length and bottom sweep, to get the
right hip effect to the trousers.
Not all clothes makers use enough
goods to make clothes stylish. ; Eder
heimer, Stein & Co., make clothes right
and put in all the material that is needed.
And they're strictly Young Men's
