Depend upon it that the man who is idle, when
his business is in season, has not the proper
requisites to attract, but when he is active from
sunrise to sunset, and engagements are ditlicult to
make, his work has the merit that attracts, and he
deserves his success. Such is the condition of
Mr. Bourdon at the Notman Photo Studio here.
If you wish to be convinced, look at his work, and
seek to make an early appointment.

at all events the ancient Greeks and Romans had
some covering for their horses' feet to protect them,
and the superstition regarding the horseslioe is
lost in the fogs of the early ages ; furthermore if
Solomon truly had, as we are told, " forty thousand
stalls of horses," and no horseshoes, then an
additional source of superstition was lost to them,
and goodness knows they had enough.

Here at Poland Spring with over a hundred
horses of our own, and scores of others tliat are
not Poland's, only temporarily, it is not to be won-
dered at that as large a number as thirty-six horses
are sometimes shod in one day at the wayside

To elucidate further it may be said, that the
shoeing is only done for Poland Spring horses,
and no general slioeing is done for others not
