Mrs. Rachel A. Kingsbury died at 3 a.
m. Thursday, May 22nd, at the home of
her daughter, Mrs. J. Lee Patterson. She
had enjoyed good health the past winter
and had been employed in her regular
duties as a nurse the greater part of the
time. She was taken ill about a week
before her death with influenza followed
by bronchial pneumonia. Mrs. Kingsbury
was born in Montville, Sept. 16, 1850, the
daughter of the late Job and Achsha
(Bumps) Foster. When a young woman
she married Almon Clements of Waldo,
who died many years ago, leaving her
with three daughters, Phebe M. Nicker
son of North Belfast, now deceased; Lu
cinda A. Avery and Martha L. Swift,
both of Belfast. Later she married Sam
uel Kingsbury and two of the four chil
dren of that marriage survive: Marie V
Patterson of this city and Mrs. Caroline
S. Drinkwater of Newport, R. I. Two
sisters and two brothers also survive,
Mrs. Eliza Vose of Freedom, Mrs. Sarah
Thompson of Belfast, Ephraim Foster of
Knox and John Foster of Leavenworth,
Kansas. She was planning to leave in a
short time for a visit with her daughter
and family in Newport. Mrs. Kingsbury
had lived a quiet, peaceful life and was
respected and beloved by all who knew
her; but it was in the family circle that
her genuine worth and dependable char
acter was best realized. Her children,
grandchildren and great grandchildren
constantly sought her advice and coun
sel. The funeral was held at her late
home Saturday at 10 a. m , Rev. Arthur
E. Wilson of the First Parish church of
ficiating. The interment was in the fam
ily lot in Grove Cemetery. The bearers
were members of her own family, Sher
man G. Swift, now of Bath; Herbert A.
Drinkwater of Newport, R. I.; J. Lee Pat
terson, now of Portland; and Albert H.
Morse of Belfast.

Twenty-six of tile Belfast Boy Scouts
accompanied by Scoutmaster Dickey made
the trip to Fort Knox last Saturday and
it was oce of the long trips of the season.
The party left Belfast in the Decrow
launch Louise at eight a. m. and landed
at the old fort a little before eleven. Re
porting to the officer in charge of the
fort, they were shown over the grounds
and through the underground passages of
one of the best pieces of masonary in
the world. This old fort which was com
pleted in 1861 and required some 25 years
in the building, certainly offers much to
the visitor. Through Hie dark passages
and in the magazines, ove. the cannon
and down the massive sides of the great
granite structure the Scouts went With
the freedom of the old place thev had a
. delightful outing. Luncheon was served
on the grounds and then the trip across
the river to quaint old Buckspo t, the
home of actors and especially the "Farn
j hams” of moving pictures. Visits were
made to the bank, the library and the
“Old Jed Pouty Tavern,” a half heur at
the gym in the East Maine Conference
Seminary. Later they went to the Blod
gett tanning factor), where immense
quantities of hides were passing through
the process which made them high pr.oed
leather and then the return trip home. A
little rough water was encountered on
the way home and some of the Scouts
contributed to the fish, but on the whole
the Louise sustained her excellent reputa
tion and none were the worse for the voy
age. No local trip can be offered which
lias more educational advantages and the
boys were most enthusiastic.

On Friday, May 23, 1919, Frances Louisa
Jones, widow of Charles B. Hazeltine, died
in her home on Primrose Hill after a briel
illness. Mrs. Hazeltine was the daughter
of Joseph and Mary Ann (Brown) Jones
and was born in Camden, April 30, 1832,
spending her early life in that town till
her marriage to Mr. Hazeltine on July 12,
1854. At that time she came to live in
the beautiful house on Primrose Hill just
built by Mr. Hazeltine, which remained
her home till het death. With her family

grandson, Frank D. Hazeltine, son of Ben

long life was spent quietly among her
family and friends, busied and occupied

boston & Bangor line resume
On Monday, May 26th, the Eastern
Steamship Company began its summer
season between Bangor and Boston and
the schedule includes three trips a week.
The leaving time from Bangor is on Tues
days, Thursdays and Saturdays at 2 p.m.,
and the return trips from Boston will be
made on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fri
days at 5 p m.
It will be good news to patrons of this
popular line to learn that the Steamship
Camden is assigned to this branch of the
service thereby assuring excellent ac
commodations with express speed and
altogether good service.
The schedule from Boston enables pas
sengers to make immediate connections
at Rockland early in the morning with
the steamer for Bar Harbor, thereby af
fording a delightful sail along by the
slopes of Mt. Desert and arriving at Bar
Barber at noon. The time of leaving,
Boston bound, from Beifast is 5 p. m. and
from Camden at 6.15 p. m. The steamer
from Bar Harbor leaves at 1.30 p. m,
making connections at Rockland for the
Boston boat.
