He also urged the raising of more grains, saying that the average Maine produc tion per acre was above that of almost every State in the Union. The next speaker was Mr. DcForest H. Perkins, formerly the secretary of the Portland Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Perkins laid bare some unpleasant facts. Among other things he said that at a meeting of some 1200 students in the Portland schools the question was asked how many of them intended to remain in the State after their school life was ended, and 90 per cent of them voted no. The question was then asked how many would like to remain in the State under business conditions as good as in other States, and nearly every one voted in favor of Maine. This, Mr. Perkins said, was what is the matter in this state and the only remedy was to j make business better and more of it. There are 27,000,000 people living with- I in 500 miles of the center of the city of ! Boston. These people must all be fed and clothed and with these people is the easily accessable market for what we produce and manufacture. Mr. M.

L. Slugg, C. B. Holmes, 11. H. Coombs, M. R. Knowlton and Maine Hills was ap pointed to see if a sufficient number of our citizens would open their homes to visitors on that occasion. A committee consisting of F. L Whitten, M. L. Slugg, Edward P.vans, Ralph 1. Morse and N. S. Donahue was appointed to enlist the Board of Trade members in the ranks of the Agl. and Ind. Leagut. A resolution was adopted pledging the Board of Trade to co-operation with the Golf club in in creasing its membership.

Jones, Belfast, Me. Colonial Theatre Elsie Ferguson, Annette KeUerman, Bryant Washburn, Norma Talmadge, Paul White and WiUiam S. Hart to Be Seen The Next Few Days. Elsie Ferguson, Thursday. Admirers of Elsie Ferguson, the beauti ful and talented Artcraft star, have an other treat in store for them when her latest starring vehicle, “The Marriage Price” is presented Thursday. Miss Fer guson has a new and delightful role in this photoplay, that of a young society girl who is impoverished when her father is ruined and after he commits suicide she is cast upon her own resources for a livelihood. Of course it all turns out right in the end, but the suspense is quite gripping before Helen Tremaine’s ship steers in the harbor of love and happiness. Also a Mack Sennett comedy, “Her Blighted Love” will be shown Thursday. Annette KeUerman, Friday Annette KeUerman, champion swim mer and favorite screen actress, is the amphibious star of the William Fox super-production, -‘Queen of the Sea,” which comes Friday. Miss Kellerman’s unique talents, both as a thespian and ! natatorial artist, are well known to the picture-loving public, from “A Daught r of the Gods” and other acquatic produ. - 1 tions. In “Queen of the Sea,” she plays a naiad in a submarine fairy story de signed to display her abilities as a swim mer and high-diver in the most spectacu lar and sensational style. The picture is packed with thrilling stunts and dramatic situations, and the hair-raising climax is a scene where Miss KeUerman, walking a wire 85 feet in the air, is suddenly precipitated into the water by the severing of the slender strand. Scenes for “Queen of the Sea” were taken in Bar Harbor, Bermuda, Florida and many other places. Also on Friday a Ganmont Weekly containing views of the damage done to the steamer Belfast. Bryant Washburn, Saturday. The story of a young man who is gen erally known as “Simp,” because of his supposed bone-headedness, is told in “Poor Boob, ” a Paramount picture which will be seen Saturday with Bryant Wash burn as star. This Simp, however, has really some thing to him, as he proves when he gets an opportunity. The natives of the home town, who predicted that he would never amount to much, are forced to take back their prophecies when he returns to the town as a millionaire. He puts up such a big bluff that he not. only wins their hom age but also really establishes himself in business and gets nominated for Congress. On Saturday also a Sunshine comedy and a Pathe News. Norma Talmadge, Monday Norma Talmadge is the bright particu lar star in the Colonial Theatre sky for Monday, appearing in a powerful emo 1 tional play of love and monev entitled “Her Only Way.” Urged by her guardian to accept Paul Belmont, who has sought her in marriage, and who promises to restore her eMate, Lucille Westbrook, 'Miss Talmadge), is torn between what she considers her duty to the home of her fathers and her love for young Joseph Marshall (Eugene O’Brien', who is poor and has no pros pects. Fearing that he is about to lose her, Jo bitterly denounces Lucille and her love of money and angered by his lack of faith, she sternly dismisses him, telling him that when Belmont comes for His answer it will he “yes.” As in a dream the girl finds herself accepting Belmont, and the wedding sup per lik; a distorted picture floating upon a disordered brain is at hand. Even now Belmont shocks her, for intoxicated, he shows an easy familiarity with a society woman, Mrs. Randolph. The climax is reached when Mrs. Ran dolph, more and more enamored, urges Belmont to divorce Lucille and make her his bride. Never had a play a more unexpected ending than this one at ; he Graphic. It is worth seeing. “Life of Gen. John J. Pershing,” Tuesday Everybody in these dats is anxious to know all that they can about General Pershing and the word that his life story has been put into a film will come as ex tremely welcome news. It is announced i that the Colonial Theatre will present the great William Fox picture, “The Land of The Free,” or “The Life of Gen. John J I Pershing,” on Tuesday. There is no doubt that this is one of the greatest moving pictures that has ever been presented. It recounts a tale such as has never been told anywhere in the world before. It is the first time that a great man’s biography has been written on the films before it was given to the world, to any very large extent, through a book. Beyond its interest as a historic subject it happens that the story of tlie life of this great man is one of the most inter esting that could possibly he told. The film that will be seen here shows that he has had more adventure tr his career than has fallen to the life,of any man we can remember. Also on Tuesday, the latest episode of “The Lightning Raider”’and a Mutt A Jeff eomedy. William S.

Army, has a One role, and the otb i ers in the cast are all well known players. | The Barbary Coast alfords a colorful background lor the story—the under world of San Francisco.

It was written by Jack Boyle and adapted to the screen by C. Gardner Sullivan. Sergt. Freeman E.
