A Day of Sunshine and Shadows. Large Attendance in AU the Churches, Which Had Special Programs. Easter Sunday, April 20th, was observ ed in all the city and outlying churches. The weather was typical of spring with sunshine ana shadow alternating. There were large audiences present, particularly at the special service held by Palestine Commandery, K. of T., in the Universal ist Church at 4 p. m. The floral decora tions, in charge of Mrs. F. G. Spinney, were in a color scheme of yellow, white and purple to blend with the tones on the hand embroidered satin altar cloth. Tu lips, jonquils, hyacinths, were used in abundance, while one handsome hydran gea with several blossom clusters graced an altar standard. About 50 Sir Knights were in attendance and occupied seats in the main section of the auditorium. The music was unusually impressive and ap propriate and was rendered by the church’s chorus choir, with Mrs. Basil R. Allen soloist, Mrs. Bessie Keyes at the organ with violin accompaniment by Lloyd D. McKeen. The response was by a choir, Miss Katherine C. Quimby, Mrs. Allen, Harold S. McKeen and Frank R. Keene and was listened to with pleasure. Ex-Prelate Morris L. Slugg, Rev. A. E. Wilson of the First Parish Church, and Rev. H. W. Gould of Portland, the Uni versalist’s candidate, took part in the services. Mr. Slugg also presented the In Memoriam and paid tribute to the two most worthy members the Commandery has lost the past year, Sir Knights George T. Osborne and Chellis II. Mich aels. The sermon was by Rev. Ashley A. Smith of Bangor, who was knighted by Palestine, when pastor of the church. He was in uniform and preached on “The Heaven Bathed Sword of a Knight Tem plar.” Always a convincing speaker Mr. Smith was a’, his best and was moved by the spirit of friendliness of all and the brotherhood of the large body present from the Commandery. The discourse was a blending of high Christian ideals from the time the Knights of oid drew their swords in defence of innocent maidens, helpless orphans and the Chris tian religion to the recent world war, when the speaker declared that chivalry was in its fullest flower. The age of heroism is not passed but is exemplified by millions of Americans in khaki, to day. A life is measured by the inward worth of Hie soul and not by what is claimed by doctrines or rituals. While of general interest it was very apparent tliat the sermon was dealing with the most sacred principles of the order who were present as his fraters. I wo oilier pleasing and helpful ser vices were held at the Universaiist church at 10.45 a. m. and at 7.30 p. in. under the direction of Rev. W. H. Gould of Port land. The decorations and music were similar to those mentioned in the K. of T. services.

The a.tar was prettily decorated with jonquils, tulips, carna tions, etc Special Easter music was furnished by members of the Dorcas Guild under the leadership ol Mrs. E. p. frost with Miss Edith M. I avidsnn as organist. Very helpful and interesting discourses were given by the pastor.

A backiround of green was furnished w ith potted palms, etc., and the same were used in the. win dows near the pulpit. Large quantities of jonquils, tulips and hyacinths were massed in front of the altar, while bou quets graced the stands and pulpits. The pastor, Rev. Arthur E. Wilson, gave one ! of his best sermons, whicli was followed l by a communion service. Tile regular church choir was assisted by children of the Sunday school in an Easter carpi. Mrs. C. W. Wescott’s Easter solo was particularly line in expression as well as I in volume and tone.

The action was brought to recover $115.04, the amount due on a contract for sawing lumber and building a sled for the defend ant. The total sum of the contract was $500, of which an account showed $384.96 had been paid. The plaintiff claimed that he contracted to saw a M feet of lumber at $5 per M, while the defence was that the price was $4 and that the work was not done when agreed, thus leaving him with the lumber on his farm when the prices went down and the demand less urgent for sawed lumber. A large num ber of witnesses were called. The jury after nearly two hours’ deliberation re turned a verdict for the plaintiff with $66.30 A motion for a new trial has been filed. Buzzell for pllf; Ritchie for deft. One of the most complicated cases to come before the Waldo county court for several terms was that ot Albert E. Drummond of Burnham vs. Carrol J. Trickey of Corinna, agent of the Borden Conuensed Milk Co. The action was brought to recover $1,000 on the sale of several cows and calves. Trickey loaned Drummond money to buy seven cows, so that he could furnish milk for the factory, and took a mortgage on the cows as se curity. Drummond was to pay at the rate of $5 per cow during eight months of the year or when the factory was in operation. It was claimed by the plaintiff that the factory ceased to buy milk after the cows were partially paid for. He was unable to make the payments, the mort gage was foreclosed and the rows taken by the defendant. The plaintiff then raised the money to pay off the balance, within the right of redemption, but he claimed that when he went to clear the that the cows and their calves had been sold. The case went to the jury at 5.30 p. w, Thursday and at 9 o'clock they re turned a verdict for the plaintiff with damages assessed at $117.68.

Mr. ftnowlton went out to the Jackson place with Ezra A. Carpenter of Brooks, who was looking for lumber. Mr. ftnowlton introduced the men and said that Mr. Carpenter was a customer, hence claim ing the sale. Later Mr. Carpenter paid Mr Jackson §2,000 for the lumber. The defence was that the sale was made with out the agents’ assistance, as Mr. Car penter came on the second trip without Mr. ftnowlton; and t:iat he never prom ised to pay and did not sign any contract to. The jury brought in a verdict for the plaintiffs of §100 and interest from July 10, 1018, to date of trial. The jury was drawn for this case and Judge Morrill appointed Chas. F.
