How far can we put it over the top? Would we not all like to see ,$60,000, which, with the $40,000 from Miss Cros by would make a starting fund of $100, 000 Can we do this? We all feel relieved that we have al most succeeded (aud will succeed) in reaching the stunt set for ourselves of $50,000 and will not stunt ourselves again for the other $10,000 but let’s everyone get busy among those who have not yet contributed (and there are many yet) and see what can be done. May not there be someone yet who will contribute $5,000, or one-half that amount, leaving the balance to be made up from smaller amounts? We will need all the money we can get for the new school building. The city of Gardiner is to expend $175,000 this year for a new school build ing. We do not expect to expend $175, 000, but just the same we will have a school building we will all be proud of. As soon as possible a complete list of all contributors will be mailed to each one who has already contributed which will enable him in checking off from those absent the ones he wishes to solicit. Nothing succeeds like success. Now, let us all gird ourselves again and make a new dash for the other $10,000! C. W. WESCOTT, Mayor. Subscriptions Received the Past Week Mrs. Annie L.

He main tained that it is the duty of every young man to take a course of military training, so that when called upon, he will be train ed and ready to take up arms in the defence of his country. The discussion which followed centered mainly on the question as to which was the better, vol untary service or the draft; some arguing in favor of the voluntary system and maintaining that the troops produced under conscription, as represented by | Germany’s huge military machine, were I not equal to the troops produced by the | ' free people of the world, inspired as they j : were by patriotism and love of liberty. The value of the trained man was recog nized, however, and the general opinion expressed was that compulsory military training would prove beneficial to our boys and a safeguard to our nation. Dr. W. L. West presided with his customary tact and consideration. Next Sunday morning the subject will be: “Ought the Ex-Kaiser to be Punished?” Now, men of Belfast, come and tell us what you think about the War Lords of Germany. CLIFTON S. WEBBER. A very sad and appalling accident took place Saturday shortly after noon at the Leonard, Stevens & Bearce shoe factory, which resulted in the instant death of Clifton S. Webber. A snow slide had disconnected a high tension electric wire of 2,200 volts and allowed it to rest on a lighting wire of 110 volts. This had burned out the light over the coal bin in the engine room and Mr. Webber, the engineer, was attempting to replace a light bulb that had burned out and re ceived the full shock of the power wire. The little finger of his left hand and his cnest were severely burned and he fell to the floor where he stood without know ing what had taken place. Mr. Webber was working as he usually did, over time. The only members of the office force there were Mrs. Luther A. Ham mons and Miss Clara R. Steward, who were ready to leave. Mr. Webber was found by the watchman, Joseph Kenney. ! Dr. Foster C. Small was called and found life extinct. Later Dr. Eugene D. Tap ley, examining physician of the Penob scot Bay Electric Company, was also called. Supt. Herbert P. Blodgett found no difficulty in immediately locating the real cause of the accident. Supt. Her bert H. Stevens says that Mr. Webber was one of the mos. faithful and efficient men ever employed by the factory. He was always on time, his engine room was a model of neatness and he was not only willing but anxious to learn new methods and devices that their increasing busi ness demanded. To do his work well and faithfully, even if it required night times and Sundays was his endeavor. Mr. Webber was born in Searsport Aug ust 10, 1866, the youngest of the six I children of Augustus and Matilda (Col- ! cord) Webber and is the last to pass away, At the age of 16 years he began work as an engineer for the Merrill Spool Mill Co. in Searsport and went with them to Dixmont to set up their engine, etc. In October 1888, he came to Belfast to work in the shoe factory, where he had since been employed. Mr. Webber was an honest man and an up right citizen. He was modest and re- I tiring, preferring to remain with his fam- j ily where he found his greatest pleasure. He had been for years a faithful member of Waldo Lodge, I. O. O. F. His wife, formerly Miss Arvilla S. Black, and their three sons, Leroy A., Percy C. and Dr. Ernest S. Webber all of Belfast, sur vive. The funeral took place at his late home, No. 4 Beil street, at 11 a. m. Tues day with Rev, Ashley A. Smith of Ban gor, a personal friend, officiating. The shoe factory was closed from 10 a. m. to 1 p. m., to allow all to attend. There were 33 beautiful floral offerings, includ ing relatives, etc. Every individual in the factory was represented by rooms and personally. Among the rormer was the firm, the office, and the stitching room with his nickname “Kip,” and of the latter Messrs. Leonard, Stevens and Mr. and Mrs. Hammons. W. E. Hamil ton, the florist, sent to Mrs. Webber the cards for 20 orders he was unable to fill. He said it was the largest display he had handled in his forty years’ business. The bearers were Messrs. Manter Decrow, Elroy Michaels, Byron B. Greenlaw and I T. Clough. The interment will be later in Grove Cemetery. EDWIN C. HOLBROOK Edwin Clarendon Holbrook was born in Knox, Me., the son of Benjamin F. and Susannah M. Holbrook. He was educated at the public schools of Knox and later at Bucksport. Coming to Brooks after being married on Nov. 24, 1881, to Emma O. Pratt of Benton, Me., Mr. Holbrook was in business for some time. He was a member of the State Legislature in 1916 1917, and also at the time of his death was first selectman of this town, having filled the position with credit for several years.

II Electric Curling Irons ■ ■ Women who like their hair to look the best at all times, find their dressing table incomplete without an electric curling iron. Quickly connected to any light socket, it is ready in just a few seconds at just the right temperature. It is clean and safe and will last a lifetime. Curl Hair the Ideal Way When the iron is heated it is clean and ready for work-no fuss-no bother. The hair is beautifully curled by the crisply correct heat-the work of mo ments only! The aluminum comb, which slips onto the iron, makes a convenient and most efficient hair drier for use after a shampoo. It heats quickly and with the current left on it stays hot and dries the hair in a few moments. The cost of operation is trifling-l-3 of a cent an hour. The price, complete, is $7.50. ■■ Central Maine Power Company
