The Salvation Army Drive. James

E. Milliken is serving on the State Com

quota is $1,000; New England’s $2,285,000
and the National 13 million. The Salva

A fierce alarm of lire from box 2d was
sounded at 11 20 a. m. Wednesday for a
blaze in the F. G. Spinney tailoring room
in the Mixer block on Main street. Mr.
Spinney was standing at the stove near
the door at the head of the stairs lighting
his pipe and thinks that the paper pat
terns on tiie wall were ignited from the
match. He gave the alarm and at once
tore down the patterns, singeing the hair
on the top of his head. The curtains on
the opposite side of the door caught. Men
near at hand came to his assistance and it
was not necessary for the fire department
to turn on the water. The lack of a good
stream from the pipes in the building
handicapped the first aid. Mr. Spinney lost
some of his personal clothing, but his
customers’ property was not in the least
injured. The door and casing and adja
cent walls were injured. The chemicals
in the room would have made a serious
fire if the blaze had reached them.
The team game at the Ward alley Mon
day evening was the most exciting of the

Millbury Hunt, past master of Victor
Grange as follows:
■Worthy Master, Sisters, Brothers and
Visitors of Waldo Pomona:
To me again has fallen this honor, to
have this privilege of extending to you
our most cordial welcome, useless as it
may be, for you all know well that you
are welcome at ar.y time.
At this fifth monthly meeting of our
year, as all things are springing anew,
we are gathered here this morning with
our hearts full of thankfulness to the
Giver of all good gifts to meet again, to
enjoy the spirit of friendship, harmony,
truth, love, and peace. It is good for us
to be here, and we come because of our
love for each other, and our interest in
the welfare of our subordinate granges,
and our loyalty of this, Waldo Pomona.
We are glad of this love and loyalty,
these words which in these days mean so
much to us.
No doubt when you drove into our vil
lage you noticed our national emblem
flying to bid you welcome—that emblem
which shields and protects, that Ameri
can flag which asks the love and loyalty
so gladly and proudly given by every
“Your flag and my flag! and oh, how
much it holds!
Your land and my land, secure within its
Your heart and my heart beat quicker at
Sun-kissed and wind-tossed, the red, the
blue and the white.
The one flag, the great flag, the flag for
me and you,
Glorifies all this beside, the red, the
white, the blue!”
We are just one big, happy family,
bound together with the bonds of chari
ty, truth and loving-kindness. We are
glad to meet the old friends and to greet
the new, for we need your strength and
your interest. No strangers are within
our gates today, for we all are sisters and
brothers of one united household, and as
such, we extend to you, one and all, a
cordial greeting and a loving welcome.
To our honored guests and to ail visi
tors of the sister subordinate granges, we
say in all sincerity: “Our friends, you are
heartily welcome.” And as we are as
sembled here for our instruction, for the
honor of God and for the good of our
fellowmen, again to eacii and to everyone
of you I say, welcome.
“I hear a song;
It sings of brotherhood, of joy and peace,
Of days when jealousies and hates shall
When war shall die, and man’s progres
Soar unfettered to the sky.”
“If we knew the cares and trials,
Knew the efforts, all in vain,
Knew the bitter disappointments—
Understood the loss and gain—
Would the grim external roughness
Seem, I wonder, just the same?
Would we help where now we hinder?
Would we pity where now we blame?”
Bro. Clias. Howes,past master of Pomona
Grange, responded in liis usual happy olT
hand manner; piano trio, Helen Plaisted,
Verna Miller and Ruth Robbins; reading,
Greetings to Pomona, by Alice Andrews;
piano solo by Nina Townsend, was followed
by discussion of the topic: Resolved,
That the biggest phase of the war recon
struction task will be to establish agri
culture on a more secure oasis than it
lias formerly occupied, or rests on now.
A rather formidable sounding topic, but
very ably discussed by a large number
and said to be the most interesting dis
cussion held in Pomona Grange tor a long
time. The topic was opened by George
Butler,master of host grange, ami further
discussed by L. C. Morse,who favored or
ganization especially for selling purposes
at Boston. Charles Adams believed in
legislation and government guarantee as
great helps to farmers. Edwin Martin
made quite extended remarks. He be
lieved government aid, co-operation,
transportation and education should all
be factors to help farmers along to suc
cess. Under the bead of livestock indus
try farmers should keep only best ani
mals following three Trench methods, to
see that their stock is either subsidized,
authorized or licensed. Brothers Miller,
Stevens and Howard favored govern
ment aid and organization as that would
do away with speculators. Brother How
ard said he had heard co-operaiion talked
up ever since he was three years old and
he had not seen any results unless the
Farm Bureaus might do something. W.
M. Aborn replied to him in a few words
that caused a large smile to pass around
the hall. Brother Batehelder was asked to
give his experience in pig raising. He
estimated that he had saved eight or ten
dollars on a pig by raising them on dry
teed. On call of Brother Morse three
veterans responded. Two soldier boys
were present and tney were given three
cheers, followed by salute to the flag.
Brother and sister Johnston, master and
lecturer of Knox Pomona, were called
upon and made interesting remarks. Sis
I ter Johnston gave ail invitation to Wal
do Pomona to meet with Knox Pomona
at Burketville August 16th and enjoy
with them their Field Day. Later the
grange accepted the invitation. Rev.
1 Mrs. E. E. Harrison, the recently settled
Method st minister at Searsmont, made
some fine talk which was much appreci
ated, followed by pleasing remarks by
brother and sister Vose from Knox
county. The exercises were then turned
over to the host grange and the follow
ing program was given: Reading,
j “Sword my brave boy wore,” Matia
: Butler; cornet solo, Maurice Cobb, who
. responded to an encore; reading, Agnes
i Fuller; piano solo, Helen Plaisted; read
! ing, sister Ileal; piano duet, Mary Cobb
and Verna Miller; comic reading by J.
| W. Skinner, who was given an encore;
piano solo, Nellie Brewster; monologue,
George Butler. At the census twelve
granges responded. A vote of thanks
was given Victor Grange for the hospi
talities of the day. The secretary re
ported that 444 patrons paid dues last
year. Closing exercises. If all the pa
trons of Waldo county could know how
crowded full these Pomona meetings are
with matters helpful and enjoyable along
educational, agricultural and patriotic
lines, with good music, comic features, a
great dinner and sociability thrown in
for good measure, they would never miss
a meeting.—G. E. B.

“Shoulder Arms," the second Charlie
Chaplin million-dollar picture, to be
shown on Thursday picturizes his ex
periences and difficulties as an average
American doughboy, from the time he en
ters the “rookie" squad until, as a finish
ed product of military training, he in
vades Hunland and captures the Imperial
Herman Staff with a method typically
Yankee for novelty and surprise.
His feet got him into countless tro; bles
under the unsympathetic eye of his drill
sergeant, and even after his advent into
the front line trenches he finds new com
plexities in tne management of a rifle
and bayonet. Following numerous ex
periences in his dugout he volunteers for
a special spying mission. Camouflaged
as a tree, he invades enemy territory. A
Hun wood-chopping party attempts to
add him, disguised as a tree stump, to its
collection, with disastrous results. Charlie
is finally captured in a shell-torn French
house. He makes his escape by turning
the tables on the Germans, and, accom
panied by the French girl who befriends
him, he seeks refuge in what proves to
be the headquarters of the General Staff.
The Kaiser, Crowr Prince and von Hin
denburg surprise him in an attack on a
German officer, but Charlie saves the

"Too Fat to Fight,” Friday
Nation-wide and international is the
popularity of Rex Beach. With each
succeeding picturization of his famous
stories he becomes not better known, but
more beloved by the red-blooded races of
the world. His "Too Fat to Fight,” pro
duced for Goldwyn and featuring Frank
McIntyre, promises all that the Rex
Beach Pictures have offered iu the past,
with the addition of a distinct surprise.
"Too Fat to Fight” is a patriotic drama
with a purpose and a big punch. It is un
like anything with which screen devotees
have ever associated the name of Rex
Beach, yet it embodies all the vigor, im
agination and frank openheartedness of
the American author.
"Too Fat to Fight” shown one day

the love of a true scion of British nobility.
