All these articles were sent in between Aug. 25th and Sept. 1st. They are asked to provide 1525 of each of the above knitted articles as their share before the winter months. They have ordered a large shipment of yarn and from now on will furnish it for socks, mufflers, helmets and wristers. Since June they have shipped 284 pairs of army socks, but it will be readily seen that they must have many more knitters in order to provide the number allotted to them in the given time. They will be grateful for contributions, small or large, for the purchase of yarn.Acknowl edgment is made for the following con tributions: $50 from Mr. Geo. Stone of Lewistown, Mont.; $2.41 from class ’17 B. H. S.; $12 from sale of Larkin’s goods. .... The following letterhas been received from Boston: io an urgamzations or me ivew Eng land Division: Several reports have come to us from various Chapters stating that people in their community claim that the soldiers were having to pay money in order to get Red Cross sweaters, etc., also that the Supply Service was selling to various department stores the finished articles. If these rumors come to your attention I wish you would please em phatically deny them, as the American Red Cross has not sold any of its finished Red Cross articles to any individual sol dier or department store in this or any other city. What may be possibly considered the crowning event (of its kind) of the season was pulled off at The Battery last Satur day evening at the celebrated open air beach theater owned and operated by Im presario Johannes Duntonio, when a grand operatic performance was present ed to a large (at the beginning) and en thusiastic (on account of the brevity of the program) audience, consisting of the elite of the town and neighboring States. The artists appearing on this occasion were Mile. Wescottstowfski, the cele brated mezzo-contralto from the Royal Opera at Moscow, Signorita Pitcherini from the opera house at Milan, M’Emorio de Whitte, renowned tenor from Paris, Bertrando Davissessi, buffo tenor from Madrid and Signor Pitchicardi, basso profundo from Belgium. The orchestra was under the direction of Mile. Gil christioso from the Metropolito Opera House in New York. The principals were fearfully and wonderfully costumed in old raiment, table covers, bath robes, milliners’ supplies and sundry articles too numerous to mention, pinched from the nearby cottages and their inmates. The stage settings were superb, the back drop consisting of a beautiful moonlight view of East Belfast and Sears Island. Mr. O. E. Frost kindly furnished the elec tric illuminations. His auto headlights were the stage footlights. The per formance was simply indescribable. It consisted of scenes from three of the most popular comic operas, Pina fore, Pirates of Penzance and Mikado. Between the acts Madame Wescotts towski and M. de Whitte rendered excel lent songs and duets. Altogether it was a most satisfactory performance. The audience were satisfied because they es caped with whole ear drums and with sanity unimpaired. The artists were much gratified at the character of the specimens of the vegetable kingdom that were presented to them and in the man ner in which the presentations were made. They were prepared to dodge. The beautiful flowers that were handed over the footlights were from the famous gardens of Miss Margaret Duntonio, sis ter of the Impressario. The receipts at the box office were all that could be ex j pected from the audience present and j will insure bum Battery roads for the next season as these fu .ds were to ne used for road improvement. It is to be hoped that these artists will again appear in the distant future. The New Belfast Fair. The new Belfast fair will hold its third horse race this season Saturday after noon, Sept. 15.

On one day they hiked from 5 a. m. to 4 p. m., and on another day covered 22 miles over wonderful mountain scenery.
