Edward Little was born in Newburyport, in 1773, and was the second son of Colonel
Josiah Little of that city. He graduated at Dartmouth in 1797, and prepared himself for
the bar. His early and middle life were spent in Newburyport and Portland. At one time
he was a bookseller and publisher in this city, his stand being in Muzzy's Row, Middle
Street. We occasionally find old volumes containing his imprint.
At the death of his father, who had large landed estates in Maine, he removed to
Danville, now Auburn, and build a mansion in a sightly position, overlooking the
grand water-power, the value and use of which he appreciated. While laboring to
develop the industries of the villages clustered on either side of Lewiston Falls,
foreseeing as he did for the first the grand possibilities of the situation, he did not forget
to plant and to foster the church and the school. One of his first acts, after building the
church, was to give the large and valuable tract of land to Lewiston Falls Academy,
which he also endowed with gifts of money. It is characteristic of the man that he
selected the fairest spot in all his broad domain for the school and had it all planted in
an ample park near the confluence of Little Androscoggin and the Androscoggin rivers.
He was an early laborer in the temperance cause, and the writer of this article well
remembers the series of temperance meetings held nearly forty years ago in his drawing-
room; for there was no hall or vestry then on the territory now occupied by two thriving
Mr. Little died in 1849. His sons, Thomas, Josiah and Edward survived him, but have
now passed away, leaving many descendants. Two of his daughters are now living, Mrs.
Samuel Pickard, of Auburn, and Mrs. Charles Clark of Lewiston. His young brother,
Josiah of Newburyport, founded the free public library of that city, and many educational
and benevolent associations were benefitted by his munificence. He endowed a professor-
ship at Bowdoin, which has taken his name, and now another professorship in the same
college is to be endowed with funds transferred for the purpose by the trustees of the
Institution founded by Edward Little.
The sculptor who is to model the proposed statue has a noble form and a benignant
countenance to represent in bronze. Fortunately many excellent likenesses of the good
man are in existence. Doubtless a Maine sculptor will receive the commission, and it is
hoped that the first portrait statue may be in every sense a credit to the State.

The Statue to Edward Little. It now seems probable that the first public statue erected
in this state in honor of one of its citizens will be the one which the city of Auburn has
voted to place in the park of the Edward Little High Institute, hereafter to be known as
the Edward Little High School. It is creditable to the city of Auburn to be first to conferred
upon one whose sole claim to it rests upon philanthropic grounds. It will be a statue not to
a warrior or a statesman, but to an ardent and steady friend of the cause of education and
of temperance. To the public spirited man, whose wise planning and unselfish enterprise,
laid broad and deep the foundations of education, morality and religion in the twin cities
of Auburn and Lewiston, where he spent the last and most active years of his useful life.

Saccarappa, October 14th, 1873, Mrs. Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Rounds of Saco,
aged 47 years, 7 months, 24 days.
In noticing the death of Mrs. Rounds we can but feel that it deserves more than a
passing notice. She was a member of the Methodist church in good standing and by
her Christian kindness endeared herself to a large circle of friends and relatives with
whom she was on the most intimate terms; as a wife and mother she was all and
everything to her husband and children; she was ever faithful to her household and
although she was for many years deprived of the privilege of attending to the wants
of her family by a long and severe illness, yet their grief shown that her labor was
appreciated; as a Christian none who knew her could for a moment doubt her sincerity
and devotion; she was all her heavenly Father saw fit to lay upon her. Her record is on
high where she will be with Jesus until the trumpet shall sound and death and the grave
deliver up their dead and the righteous receive immortality. She lived a humble Christian
life here and will receive her reward when Jesus comes to be glorified by all them that
loved Him, and while those who held her most dear mourn their great loss they can but feel
comforted with the thought that while they bear the cross she wears the crown. M. H.
wears the crown. M.H.
While in this vale of life and sorrow
She felt her Father's promise sure,
And asked for faith to be more stronger
That she might all her pains endure.

Mr. T. Frank Jones, manager of the Mercantile Agency, issues a circular in
regard to business prospects of the State. The potato crop falls far below that of
last year, but yield proves better than was expected before the harvest. The

will benefit dealers, and to some extent produces. Wheat has rusted and is deficient
in quality, oats are a fair crop, and buckwheat look well. Evidence of thrift are
noticed in every direction. A large amount of new buildings and repairing of old
ones is observable all over the State; mortgages canceled or reduced, and the rate
of interest lessened.

The dedication of the new court hose at Skowhegan, on the 5th inst., was a very
pleasant affair. Everyone was glad to learn that Mr. Coburn has so far recovered from
