Immense butter flies were spaced around the balcony rail ing. Lanterns shaded the globes around the hall and two floor lamps with pink shades gave a soft tint to the lights. Tall branches of Japanese cherries alter nating with long sprays of pink roses ornamented the iockers around the hall. The floral effect on the stage was unus ually good. White bunting covered the railing, relieved with loops of climbing pink roses, garden clematis and rock ferns.

Briefly summarized they are as follows: To draw together Maine’s agricultural, industrial, commercial, educational, professional or ganizations, labor and women’s activities, the American Legion and, as far as pos sible, every citizen of the State, for the purpose of directing a strong and effective co-operation of all these forces for the benefit of the commonwealth. Mr. George S. Hobbs, Vice President of the M. C. R. R., spoke of the railroad problems of the State, particularly of those which that company is trying to solve. He presented his views in a clear and interesting address, which eonvinced his hearers that a further increase of freights was the only means of averting congestion of terminals, a poorer service and great danger of bankruptcy. He stated that the coal bill of the Maine Central last year was about $1,000,000, while eight or ten years ago the coal bill was about one-third that sum, and that wages, cost of equipment and other charges, had advanced in the same pro portion. In answer to questions he said ours was the most profitable of their leased branches, that its value to the company was greater than any other, that the revenue derived from it had in creased about 100 per cent in the last six years and about 200 per cent in the last fifteen, and that the owners of our road would be treated fairly when the present lease expires.
