A Mauy aided Divine From Jerusalem will
Hold an Upon Parliament on the Life of
Christ in the Camp Meetings.
The District Superintendents, Rev’s. H. B.
Haskell aud John W. Hatch,and Rev. A. E.
Luce, have succeeded in securing the ser
vices of Rev. John B. Kaloria, who was
born and raised in the lloly City of Jeru
salem aud has a Methodist pastorate iu
Vermont. He will be at the Littleton,
Northport and Jacksonville Campgrounds
and conduct Bible conferences on some
important incidents in the Life of Christ,
which is his specialty. Mr. Kaloria has
been called “the living polyglot,” as he is
conversant with a good many languages;
“the living Bible concordance and cyclo
pedia” because he is not only familiar witli
the Old and New Testaments but quotes
scriptures in the original Hebrew aud
Greek. Among his distinguished students
iu languages, etc., he has had priests, min
isters, principals of High schools, physi
cians and artists. Besides his erudition in
international literature he has gathered
considerable information on his journeys
in many countries on both hemispheres,
afoot and in all sorts of conveyances. His
sermons, lectures and literary productions
have beeu written in different tongues and
he has delivered edifying, instructive and
entertaining lectures in many churches of
different denominations in the eastern, west
ern and northwestern States. His Bible con
ferences are an open parliament, where
everybody is invited to ask questions on the
subject under discussion. In these spirited
debates one is reminded of the scholarly
discussions in the ancient halls of learning
within the Temple precincts in Jerusalem.
In his exposition of Scriptures Mr. Kaloria
acquaints his audience with Hebrew and
Mohammedan social and religious life in
Palestine, as well as with the Catholic,
Lutheran, Reformed and Anglican theology,
which lie has studied to a great extent, lie
has been gifted with the rare ability, of
presenting the Bible truths and historical
facts not only in a vivid manner, but makes
i them practical for the present day. 11 is
methods aud tactics are so that tlie chair
men in his Bible conferences gladly extend
the time of his expositions. Come with
your friends and enjoy a rare treat in these
Bible conferences.
The funeral of Edwin 0 Chadwick was
held at his late home in Palermo July 15th,
Rev. II. W. Abbott officiating. S. B. Jones
took charge of the services. Tiie six
brothers of Mrs. Chadwick, Wesley, Orville,
Yeaton, Frank, Rodney and Warren Nelson
acted as pall bearers. There was a very
large attendance. The Grange ceremony at
the grave was very impressive. There was
!a profusion of beautiful flowers from
friends and relatives aud 54 pinks from the
Grange. Those who attended from out of
the, State were Mr. Will Chadwick, Mrs.
Ella Eastman, Mr. Yeaton Nelsou and Mrs.
Ella Powlowsky. The interment was in
the Perkins* cemetery.
Mrs. Rosilla B. Mason died July 22nd at
her home in Ellsworth at the advanced age
of 91 years. Mrs. Mason was born in Or
laud and lived there until after her mar
riage, when they moved to East Boston,
where Mr. Mason was engaged as a com
mission merchant and lumber dealer. About
fifteen years ago they moved to Ellsworth,
Mr. Mason dying a few years after. The
Ellsworth American says of the deceased:
“Mrs. Mason was a quiet, reserved lady,
who was especially thoughtful and consid
erate of neighbors and friends and most
devoted to her family. By her quiet, sincere
life she demanded the confluence and re
spect of the members of the entire com

The Missing Bangalore.
Capt. A. X. Blanchard of No. (>2(j Fiftieth
street, Brooklyn, owner of one-fifth of the
missing American ship Bangalore, who was
also her master fioin 1897 to 190(1, lias not
given up hope. Capt. Blanchard was follow
ed by his brother, Capt. P. B. Blanchard, as
master of the ship, and he by Capt. Luke IS.
Colby of Thomaston. Her mate was John
J. Cox, 21 of New York^and second mateT.
B. Davis, 43, of Baltimore. She carried a
carpenter, steward, cook, bos'n and 14 sea
men, being greatly undermanned for her
size. The Bangalore left Newport News on
Oct. 22, 1907, aud was last seen Nov. 24, 1907.
when she was spoken in 7 degrees north and
2(5 degrees west. Capt. Blanchard says:
“If she is lost 1 feel pretty sure it was caus
ed by ice, for neither fire nor collision could
hurt her much without her being heard
from before this.”
The Shoe Situation.
New England footwear shops are still well
occupied, but wholesalers have left the Bos
ton market without placiug any large vol
ume of business, and western jobbers have
not continued to purchase astreely as open
ing sales promised. Prices are not changed,
except where the increased cost of raw
material has forced shoe manufacturers to
advance figures, and little business is done
on tbis basis because buyers insist that
genera! conditions do not warrant the rise
that has occurred in hides and leather.
This attitude does not tend to improve sales
of shoes on the higher basis. Most new
business is in medium lines of calf, patent
leather and glazed kid that retail at $3 to
$4 per pair. Working shoes, such as heavy
split and satin leather goods, are neglect
ed. Local wholesalers repoit trade in July
less active than in June.—linn’s Keview,
July 25ih.
Men and Church.
Why Men Go to Church.—The Examiner.
Do they? Last Sunday—or was it the
Sunday before?—there was one small boy
but no man at all in a certain Protestant
Episcopal church in this immediate vicinity .
Such at least was the report received on the
golf-links near by, and everybody there
seemed shocked and grieved.—Harper’s
Murder in Stonington.
Crazed with jealousy over the attentions
of his brother to his sweetheart, who lived
in Stonington, Frank Baldasara, aged 30
years, July 21st, shot and instantly killed
Antonio Baldasara, aged 25, in an Italian
quarry-men’s camp on Crotch Island. Bald
asara then turned the weapon on his uncle,
Ebomedio Sorretti, who tried to prevent his
escape, and shot him through the neck.
The latter was seriously wounded but is
expected to live. The murderer was arrest
ed in Bangor Tuesday when about to land
from steamer Tremont, and taken to the
jail in Ellsworth.
“Hove-To” and Saved the Cat.
It was from au American ship, the
William 11. Macy, that the cat fell over
board at sea and Capt. Grotb is the first
man on record to heave his ship to, lower a
boat, and rescue “Muggins,” the pet of the
i Macy, which was on her voyage from
Sy dney to San Francisco. Capt. Groth can
depend upon being-a hero with all lovers of
. dumb animals, and especially ofjcats, who
. learn of his humane act.—The Marine
Wood-Vaughan! Leroy Wood of Knox
and Miss Agnes Vaughan of this city were
united in marriage July 23d at the home of
the bride’s parents, Rev. and Mrs. J. W.
Vaughan at City point, in the presence of
the immediate families of the contracting
parties. The bride’s uncle, Rev. William
Vaughan, pastor of Trinity Reformed
church, East Belfast, officiated, using the
single ring service. The ceremony was
performed in the parlor, which had been
tastefully decorated for the occasion with
ferns and red berries. The bride was
attended by four bridesmaids, Miss Julia
Vaughan, her sister; Miss Avis Wood of
Knox, a sister of the groom; Miss Claire
Vaughan, cousin of the bride, and Miss
Bessie Krone of New York. The groom
was attended by his brother, Wesley Wood
of Knox. Otto Vaughan of East Belfast, a
cousin of the bride, was usher. The bride
was given away by her father, Rev. J. W.
Vaughan. The bride wore a handsome
gown of white organdie, trimmed with lace
and insertion. Her going-away gown was
of brown cloth, tailor-made, with hat to
match. The bridesmaids wore dainty white
gowns and made a very pretty picture as
they stood against the background of green.
After the ceremony lunch was served by
Misses Clair and Julia Vaughan assisted
by Miss Wood and Miss Krone, and an in
formal reception followed. Then came the
start for the wedding journey. The bridal
couple had planned to drive to Northport
and there take the Boston boat for a round
about trip to their destination, a summer
resort near Old Orchard, hoping thus to
escape the showers of rice and other dem
onstrations of their friends. But they reck
oned without their hosts, for the carriage
was debated with all sorts of white
streamers aud proclaimed wherever it was
seen that it contained a wedding p irty, and
at Northport they were showered with rice
as they boarded the steamer. The bride is
a graduate of the Maine Central Institute
of Pittsfield, and has taught in Brooks and
more recently in New Boston, N. II. The
groom is a graduate ol the eastern Maine
Normal School of Castine and of Colby
College. It was while he was principal of
the Brooks High school that he met Miss'
Vaughan, who was then assistant in the
school. He has for the past year taught iu
Wells. On their return from their bridal
tour they will visit in Belfast and Knox
until just before the time for the fall term
of school to begin, when they will go to
Wells to reside. They were the recipients
of many handsome and useful presents and
of the good wishes of a host of friends.
Call-Mills. Leroy J. Call of Pitts
field and Miss Agnes M. Mills of Burnham
were quietly married at the Methodist par
sonage in Pittsfield at 7.sn “'clock Saturday
evening, Kev. B. W. Russell officiating.
Mr. and Mrs. Call will reside iu Burnham.
A league has been formed including Cam
den, Rock laud and Warren, and Thomaston
is expected to come in. The teams will be
entirely made up of unsalaried players,
their only pay being what profit they can

admission to this will be free. The Camden
team will be managed by Geo. Frohock and
captained by Millard Long, and will be
made up out of the following piayers: Fish,

It is a distinct pleasure to and from speak
ers and lecturers from other sections of the
country, who have traveled in Maine, that
there is a general recognition of the excel
lence'and superiority of the grange halls of
the State. A recent utterance I rom E.
Cyrus Miller, the Massachusetts orchard
ist, which will be read with interest is as
follows: “Iu no other place in New Eng
land have I found such fine grange halls as
in Maine. To my mind this is ample evi
dence that Maine farmers are in a prosper
ous condition. You have every reason to
congratulate yourselves that this condition
of affairs exists.”
