H. K. FIELD DEAD. Was a Resident of Montpelier 26 Years Ago.

News has been received by Rev, J. Edward Wright of the death at his home 10 Alameda, of Henry K. Field who passed away very suddenly yesterday from heart trouble. Mr. Field was at one time a well known and highly esteemed resident of Montpelier.

Mr. Field was born in Newfane in 1848 and spent his early life in Brattleboro. He graduated from Amherst college and was admitted to the Windham county bar in 1871. He came to Montpelier and formed a law parnership with the late C. J.

Gleason remaining here for about 10 years. He left Montpelier in 1881 and has been general agent of the New England Mutual Life Insurance company since that time, with offices in San Francisco. He married Miss Katherine Daniels, of Hartford, in 1872, who survives rim. Five sons were born to them Charles, Martin, Willard, Russell and Allen, and one daughter. Katherine, all of whom survive him, save Martin.

He was the brother of Mrs. E. P. Jewett, and the uncle of Mrs. J.

W. Burgess. Mr. Field was a man of force, intellect and unusual ability and made a marked success in the west. NOT A MAD DOG.

The dog was not mad as first reported, simply overcome by the heat and had a dizzy spell. The dog will be sent back home as soon a as it recovers.

There was a littla scare on Elm street for a while because of the rumor the dog had the rabies. SKIN DISEASES AND MEDICAL ETHICS How Good Dootors Are Sometimes Mislead by Old Habits Good doctors are sometimes misled by their prejudice or habits. Many condemn manufactured medicines, the good with the bad, seemingly forgetting that there are manufactured chemicals that eradicate disease in the surest way. And such doctors also forget that their own prescriptions are manufactured, too, when the druggist puts them up by hand. Think of the little difference between putting up a prescription in a drug store and putting it up in a large factory? slaves Not all doctors are of habit.

Many have abandoned the internal treatment of skin diseases with remedies. With the recent discovery that skin diseases caused by a germ that works on the surface of the cuticle they prescribe that mild, soothing liquid of Dr. Decatur D. Dennis, known as D. D.

Prescription," which destroys the germs quickly. These doctors no longer dose the patient's stomach with nasty drugs or smear him with offensive salves. Credit is certainly due these doctors for sending their tients to the drug store for a remedy when they can maxe so much larger fees by writing out their own prescriptions. If you are suffering from eczema, psoriasis, salt rheum, ringworm, dandruff, or any rash, get a bottle of D. Prescription and a cake of D.

D. D. soap and that aw ful itch will disappear with the first few Harry A. Slade, Montpeller, Vt. drops.
