Miss Vida Hemenw. y. one of the op erators in the central office of the Liberty j and Belfast Telephone Co., spent Feb. 15 j with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles j Hemenway. Mrs. Abbie Norton, teacher of the High school, went to Searsport Feb. ' 13th to visit her husband, Mr. E. Nor ton, who has been suffering from an at- j tack of the grip, and she was unable to come home for school Monday on account of the storm Sunday. The farmers improved the good sled ding of three weeks ago to harvest their ice, get the year’s wood out and haul lumber to the mills. James Bean was very fortunate in getting nearly all the lumber from the Henry Neal lot into his mill yard. He employed eight menVith their teams and has had a crew cutting lumber on the George Spear lot. Lan caster & White have been hauling the lumber from the Charles Hemenway lot to Belfast to load cars. Searsmont was snowbound in the heavy storm of the 5th and 6th. No mail reached here for three days. Mr. Bryant, the stage driver, brayely man aged to reach Belfast, in spite of the dan gerous traveling, on Monday the 9th but could not return until the next day. Charles Hemenway had to go to his barn on skis and Charles Andrews was obliged to climb out of a window to shovel the snow away frpm his storm door so he could open it. Mrs. Abbie Bryant, teacher of the grammar school and Mrs. Etta Marriner, teacher of the primary school, have closed a very successful term. Follow ing are the names of the pupils who were not absent a day for the entire term: Grammar, Gardiner Hemenway, Drum mond Hemenway, Leland Cushman, Ar chie Plaisted, Mildred'' Packard, Ruth Miller; Primary, Russell Buck, Elmor Babcock, Elizabeth Craig, Lawrence Cushman, Ralph Heal, Cora Plaisted, Ira Packard, Louise Sproul, Forest Smith. KNua. Mr. and Mrs. Clark of Aroostook are in town holding meetings at the school bouse. Mrs. Sarah Boulter has returned home from Dennysville, where she has been visiting relatives. Her aunt, Mrs. Page returned home with her. John Ingraham drove some young stock to Belfast recen ly which he had sold to parties ther,-. Leon Whitten and Porter Ingraham went with him. Goldie (Patterson) Tyler passed away Tuesday, Felg'10th, at her home after a short ilin ss from influenza, and althcu ;h she had beeg in poor health for some time, her death came as a great shuck to her friends. The funeral services were heid Feb. 13th, Rev. William Ber/yman of Unity officiating. The beautiful floral offerings showed the love and esteem in which she was held. The remains were placed in the receivinir tomb at Freedom. REAL COMMUNITY BUILDING Consider the tumbleweed and the oak. For a season the tumbleweed grows green. It flourishes in spring and summer. Then come the fall and the early gales of winter. What of the tumbleweed? Hither and yon it flies across the prairies, the sport of ever/ vagrant breeze. No wind is too light to stir it, no obstruction too small to halt it. But, does the oak go swirling around, a moving part of the autumnal landscape? Not that any one has noticed. The oak stays put. It roots deep in the soil. It is a member of a colony of oaks that have grown up together, that have weath ered the winds of winter together. The tumbleweed serves a purpose if it calls attention to the permanence of the oak, and if it drives home the fact that the practice of rooting deep into the soil has its virtues. In these times there seem to be a great many men of the tumbleweed variety being swept hither and thither. There are so many tumbleweeds scurrying about that the oaks may be overlooked. Start to count them though and there are plenty of oaks—men who have struck their roots deep into their home soil. One of the present day problems is whether it is worth while to attempt the task of increasing the number of oaks and decreasing the number of tumbleweeds. The first thing to be noticed about the oak is that it is of slow growth. It does not spring up in a day. The next thing is that it es tablishes itself by taking root. Community building is oak growing. Raising colonies of tumbleweeds will not do the trick. Before men begin to root deeply in a community they must have an abiding interest in it. That community must be more than a chance fence corner into which they have been whirled. Too many communities are simply stopping places for the people that live in them. In driving home the fact that community building brought about by a real community life is a constructive work, the present day Community Service movement has performed a distinct service. Com munity building means more oaks. A lack of it means more tumbleweeds. Hear it for yourself —the phonograph which amazed all Belfast A RE you one of those who believe that no phonograph can match the voice of the living human ? An aston ishing discovery awaits you—like the thousand Belfasters who attended the Marie. Morrisey recital. Thomas A. Edison gave his famous Tone-Test last Septem ber in the Colonial Theatre. He had Mme. Morrisey sing in di rect comparison with the RE CREATION of her voice by the New Edison.* Music lovers were completely baffled. Their eats were unable to distinguish the RE ChEA I ED voice from the living, ^ou have never heard any phc nograph that approaches the New Edison. It RE-CRE ATES not only the musical notes, but every elusive quality of tone and color which identify the original artist. “The phonograph vith a soul” Come in and hear the identical instrument*-*^, ; ' which was used last September. Make the ^ great discovery for yourself. :. jj£” UG.U FRED D. JONES, Belfast *The instrument used in last September’s Tore-test is the rejular n cdel which sells for $285. It is an exact duplicate of the Laboratory Model which Mr.,Edison perfected after spending Three Million Dollars in experiments. SANDYPOINT. Mrs. Luke Chaissen spent the week-end in Bangor. Miss Mary French has gone to Medford for a visit. ; The traveling is very bad here, the roads being badly drifted. Several men and boys from here are employed at Northern Maine Junction shoveling snow. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Snow have gone to Clinton where Mr. Snow is principal of the High school. Mrs. Asa Styles and baby are here for a visit with J. W. Styles and family. Mr. Styles spent Feb. 15 here, returning to Stockton village early Monday. In old times fox hunting used to be done for the fun of it. Now fox pells are worth something, says the Fort Fairfie.d Review. “In the good old days’’ fox pelts around here usually brought from 75 cents to $1.75 each. A man living ne r here sold one last December for $33 He has now sent another one to market, and expects about $fiO for it Some differencn from old times. Muskrat hides will tins spring be worth from $5 to $7 each, where they used to be worth from 20 to 35 cent.-. SWANVlLLE CENTER. 'Lew Murphy has the grip. Mr. and Mrs. E H. Littlefield and two children, Elma and Sarah, have been very ill with influenza. Comet Grange has been unable to hold a meeting for several weeks on account of inclement weather. The snow has been deep and so much stormy weather that Mr. Ellis discharged his teams and postponed logging business for a time. Dr. Fairchild of Searsport is the attend ing physician at Lewis Murphy’s and E H. Littlefield’s a trained nurse, fs also in attendance. / All schools in Winterport village have been clos d on account of influenza, and Ruby Gray, who teaches there, is at home and has just recovered from the mumps.
