ClTYPOINT. Over on the Poor’s Mills
road the other day we met a well known
citizen of that neighborhood and talked
with him about the fishing. ‘Yes,” he
admitted, ‘‘sometimes it is a little trying
to have the fish caught in our very door
yards. One morning I started out after
a mess of fish and met eleven men fishing.
I asked the eleventh one if there were
any more coming. Yes, there are pick
erel in the brook. One day a little fellow
was fishing up there just below Boynton’s,
where the brook curves around at the
bend of the road, and he caught two
small pickerel. I offered to buy them,
but he said he wanted them for his din
ner. He had them on a stick, and bent
down to wash them. Quick as a flash a
big pickerel grabbed them I grabbed
him and landed him. The little fellow
was so excited he couldn’t move. The
fish was 26 inches long and weighed 4
pounds, and I could run my fist into his
mouth without touching his teeth either
side, 'll oung Wentworth, who married
the Beckwith girl, was with me and he
will tell you that this is a true lish story.
No, I don’t think a pike is same as a pick
erel, any more than a porcupine is same
as a hedge hog—but they are like certain
twins we know—you can’t tell them apart
unless you see them together.”.... A Maine

“Lime ISLAND.” A deed was record
ed the past week, in the Waldo County ,
Registry conveying “Lime Island” from j
Louise Palfrey Norman, wife of Guy :
Norman of Newport, R. I., to William H.
Morrison and George C. Fletcher, both of
Stockton Springs, et als. The new own
ers will use the property for fish weir
purposes The island has 25 acres and is j
one of a chain on the south of Islesboro. i
In 1813 the island was deeded by Thorn- ;
dike, Sears and Prescott to Erastus Foote, j
It appears that they did not hold a clear ;
title as it was outside of the three mile j
limit, and a deed was recorded in 1838 j
conveying the same property for the States
c*f Massachusetts and Maine to Erastus 1
Foote. Ai that time these two States 1
held all the tame islands and wild lands
in common, but soon after Maine bought
Massachusetts’ holdings. Later Lime Is- I
land became the property of Edmund C.
Frye of Camden, who in 1913 conveyed
ii to Guy Norman.
After Many Years. The grove of

interest was received and which we are
pleased to give our readers. Mr. O. E.
Frost, the builder of the schooner, has

Reading, Mass., April 23, 1919
129 High Street
To The Belfast Journal: In a late num
ber of your paper I was more than inter
ested in a short item under Citypoint
news, pertaining to the grove of locust
trees at the top of Wilder Hill which had
been cut and went to the builders of the
Jennie Flood Kreger. I woncer if anyone
except myself know how the locust grove
happened to be there. My mother once
1 owned that corner where a house was
built and I passed much of my childhood
there. The house burned some years ago.
Now fifty years ago I was nothing but a
child. Wishing to beautify our home
grounds I dug up over in the cemetery
some small locust trees and with nothing
better than a small fire shovel dug holes
and set out the little iocusts, my mother
looking on and making fun, but every
tree lived and began to spread, as locusts
will. I remember my uncle, who lived
where Mr. Doak now lives, remarked one
day “that those trees would spread all
over that side of Wilder hill and be a
nuisance.” I felt quite proud and elated
to read that my trees were the means of
putting dollars into some one’s pocket;
also that they would be carried to foreign
ports or sail the seas. Certainly we build
better than we know, i would be glad of
one little chip as a souvenir of the day
: fifty years ago that I started a grove
which gained or became so much con
