They took their camp, canoe and provisions and were perfectly independent of wind and weather. They went to North East Carry where they entered the west branch of the Penobscot River. They canoed this river to Lake Chesuncook; then up Um bazooksus stream Jo Lake Umbazooksus. From this lake they were hauled over the two mile Mud Pond carry to Mud Pond. From here they went across Lake Cham berlain, then up the Allegash stream about ten miles to Lake Allegash, then to the head of this lake and over the carry to Round Pond. Then they went down the Cis stream about four miles to Can quoingomoc and the stream of the same name to Chesuncook. The trip was over what is known as the loop territory and was delightful from beginning to the end. They caught only a few fish for their own use. They began to keep count of the deer they met but stopped after reach ing thirty, as they were numerous and very friendly. One doe came to their camp three nights in succession. There is nothing like this trip for rest and recrea tion. A Sad Drowning Accident. Ervin J. Gray, the 14-year-old son of Perley M. and Aliena Prentiss Gray of this city lost his life Aug. 22nd while swimming in Messalonskee stream near Waterville. Ervin left here Aug. 20th for a long an ticipated visit with his sister, Mrs. John A. Proctor of 9 Main street, Waterville. He had earned a new suit of clothes, etc., for the trip and had also carefully saved his money for the expense of the trip. His mother, knowing his fondness for the water, had repeatedly cautioned him about the difference in the fresh water at Waterville and the salt water here and she felt sure he would be careful. He telephoned to his mother Monday after arriving in Waterville. Wednesday in company with a little friend, Oakes Nich ols, he went to the stream. Both boys had swam across and were on their re turn when the Gray boy was evidently taken with cramps and realizing his dan ger tried to keep afloat until help arrived. His little friend found that he could be of no help to him and went for aid. Workmen near at hand and the police patrol did all they could to save him, but were too late. His mother went to Wa terville Thursday for the remains, which were taken from the stream shortly after the accident. She returned Friday morn ing accompanied by her daughter. The funeral was held at Ervin’s late home in this city Friday at 2 p. m Rev. J. Wil bor Richardson of the Baptist church of ficiating. The interment was in Grove Cemetery. * The little fellow had always been a great comfort to his mother. He was always willing and pleased to help her about the home duties and was thoughtful and considerate beyond _Jiis years. His parents, two half-sisters, Elva Proctor of Waterville and Phyllis Shipley of Belfast, one brother, Perley M. Gray, Jr., and two sisters, Nellie and Viola Gray, survive. The School Committee Meeting. A special school commiteee meeting was held in the superintendent’s office last Friday evening to act on matters of im portance. On account of Mr. R. O. Hutchinson, the newly elected principal of the High school being in the draft at his home at Sparksville, Ind.; it was vot ed to postpone the beginning of the fall term of this school until Sept. 10th Mr. Hutchinson is 320 in the draft of his county and the quota is 196. He has passed the first examination, but had not been called for the second. The commit tee voted to wait the result of this. In the event of Mr. Hutchinson being called, his brother, George A. Hutchinson who is older, will substitute for him in the Belfast High school. The latter has had much experience in teaching in second ary schools and colleges and as superin tendent. He has the A. M. and A. B. degrees from the University of Indiana, and the Ph D. degree from Clark Uni versity. He had planned to take research work at Clark the coming year, but would defer that work to assist his brother, if called.The committee voted to employ H. Fair Holmes to transport the City point pupils.A communication was re ceived from the residents at the Hay ford district, where th^re are only 11 pupils, to have the school run this win ter, but the committee thought it was not expedient to try it, as it would prob ably not be possible to have an average attendance of eight, required by law, with so many very young pupils in the district.The insurance on the Hayford and Citypoint school buildings was placed with the Dickey-Knowlton Co.Miss Frances A. Sargent who has been em ployed the past year in North Conway, N. H., was elected teacher of the First Grade in the McLellan school. Miss Grace E. Walton, who recently under went a very serious operation at the Waldo County Hospital, was given a leave of absence until the winter term, and Mrs. Mildred C. Neal was made sub stitute principal at the McLellan school in Miss Walton’s absence.Mrs. Grace Roberts Emmons, teacher of the Seventh Grade, resigned to complete her course at the Castine Normal School, and Miss Phebe Cross, teacher of the Fourth Grade of the Peirce school, also resigned to take a Grammar Grade at Buckfield. Misses Charlotte M. Staples and E. Frances Ab bott, substitute teachers, will be given permanent positions. The matter of making the necessary transfers on ac count of these resignations was left with Supt. Woodbury. WHY YOU ARE NERVOUS •The nervous system is the alarm system of the human body. In perfect health we hardly realize that we have a network of nerves, but when health is ebbing, when strength is declin. ing, the same nervous system gives the alarm in headaches, tiredness, dreamful sleep, irritability and unless corrected, leads straight to a breakdown. To correct nervousness, Scott's Emul sion is exactly what you should take; its rich nutriment gets into the blood and rich blood feeds the tiny nerve-cells while the whole system responds to its refresh ing tonic force. It is free from alcohol. « Scott & Bowse, Bloomfield, ».J. SCENE FROM “UNDER COVER” AT COLONIAL THEATRE NEXT MONDAY EVENING Mrs. F. C.
