A brief life sketch of Neal
Dow: paper read by Mrs.
Scrrurior at W. C. T. U. meet
Neal Dow was born in Port
land, Maine, March 20, 1801
lie was the son of strong,
sturdy Now England (Junker
stock, industrious, frugal and
lomporalo through several gen
orations. His early schooling
up to the ago of II) years was
at tiio roriinnti Academy, then
his parents decided to send him
lo the " Friend's Academy" in
Now I fed ford, Mass. Tli
reason for this change was not
only the desire of his parents
to assist the academy, but they
believed it would bo or advan
(ago lo him (o mingle with peo
plo outside of his own homo,
Ho was content from thu very
beginning. Ho had the gooi
fortune to come under the in
lluonco of a circle in which his
mind and manners had oppor
(unity for improvement. 'J hero
was an exceptionally fine
library in the school whore he
could gratify lo his heart's con
tent, his love for reading, lie
cause of his love for reading be
said, "1 have had in all my lift
very few If any onoly hours.
His school days undod at the
ago of II). Ho wished to llnish
his odcuatiou and attend col
logo, but his parents had a fear
that it would bo at the peril of
liia soul. A friend of his was
a medical student who gave
liini the prlvi ego of study mi
with him in his home, ami lit
kept pace with him in all his
HlwIiiNj. His earliest business
venture was surveying a largo
trad oi laud. It was no easy
tank to outer thu woods of
.Maine in those days, and they
had many interesting advon
lures. I no guide employed on
tliitf occasion was addicted to
the use of liquor, and of course
would not go on a trip of tins
kind without a generous supply,
hui mo journey was much long
or than they had anticipated
and ho had to go without am
after being in the woods sever
al mouths, acknowledged that
he was in better health than he
had been for several, years
which fact of course plonsoi
Neal Dow very much. At the
ago oi -i no traveled all over
(ho settled part of the Unltet
States and after bis return his
lather took him in as a partner:
he was a tanner. This gave him
a comiorinoio income ot Ms
own. Ho was married at the
age of 20 and became the father
of nine children, always in
structing them in the principles
ot true temperance, of which ho
was an ardent advocate. Al
tiiougu temperance was by no
menus popular in (hose days.

years, no spent threo years in

of his country in 18151 and serv.
od two years, bight months
ot that time lie was in I.ibbv
prison. He is called the father
of probition because Maine was
the tirst prohibition state and
it was largely through his in
Hueuce. In the yoar of 18SI the
inllueuco ot the Washingtoniun
