John McCrae of Montreal in his beautiful poem, “We Shall Not Sleep,” written while the sec ond battle of Ypres was in progress, lias immortalized the red poppy fields of Flan ders, where his own body now lies. The Boston Herald’s calendar distributed early in the year, with its colored picture illus trating this poem also with its text and brief explantory notes to be treasured by all who appreciate the artistic, struck the key note of using poppies red for our honored dead. In a recent note to Mrs. F. G. Spinney, Mrs. Charles Bradbury writes of another happy thought along this line. Mrs. Bradbury said that she with Mrs. Kate Bickford Self were guests of Mrs. John H. Judge, a frequent Bel fast visitor, at a card party given by the Criterion Club of New York. At their table was a lady who had conceived the idea of planting in public ana private gardens all over the United States a bed of red poppies and in its center placing the Stars and Stripes to show we have not broke faith with those who died on Flanders fields. Mrs. Bradbury also re quested that the thought be given to the newspaper in her home city and county. Arthur P. Barnes, who was recently heard before Judge Maurice W.

Cushman for the alleged larceny of a watch, suit case and a pair of pants, from Kenneth Conner of Castine, a youth of 18 years who is employed here in the shoe factory, and rooms in the Moody house on Spring street. The respondent hired a room of Mrs. Moody on the night of May 16th and left the t7th. Barnes, aged 18 years, was arraigned and plead not guilty, but claimed that the articles were stolen by one, Wilbur Wright, who he thought belonged in Burnham, but had been at work with him at the Hubbard fertilizer plant at Mack’s Point. Mr. Conner, Sherilf Cushman and Deputy J. A. G. Beach were called as witnesses. Mr. Conner identified his property and the officers told of finding the respondent i near Holmes’ Mills Sunday and later at ' his father’s home in Waldo recovering | the goods. They have been searching : for Wright for this case and also on the 1 charge of Augustus Larrabee of Sears I port, who alleges that he took a suit of new clothes and shirts belonging to him I before leaving Searsport. Judge Lord found probable cause to hold Barnes un , der $500 bonds for his appearance at the September term of the Supreme Judicial Court and he was placed in the custody of Sherilf Cushman until he could secure bondsmen.
