ber of delightful musical selections. These
readings and recitations are the choicest
literature of the World War. Though
their theme is war, they do not glorify
war, as war. They glorify those high
qualities—which somehow war reveals in
an incomparable way—of courage and
endurance and devotion and self sacrifice
and consecration to an ideal, which found
daily expression in the spirit and conduct
of “those radiant boys, full of life, full of
love of home and kindred and country,
consenting so willingly to die.”

A most interesting and profitable hour
was spent at the North Church last Sun
day evening when a stereopticon lecture
on the subject, “From Alaska to the
Gulf,” was given by Rev. A. C. Eiliutt.
About ninety beautiful pictures were
thrown on tne screen showing the work
of the American Missionary Association
in Alaska, amongst the North American
Indians, the Chinese and Japanese in
California, in the Hawaiian Islands, in
Porto Rico, and amongst the American
Highlanders and the colored p ople of the
South. To hear such a lecture was cer
tainly to be impressed with the value of
the splendid work that is being done in
seeking to make these people loyal citi
zens of our great republic and good sol
diers of Jesus Christ.
me prayer meeting still continues to
grow. Last week we had a larger at
tendance than ever. This mid-week de
votional service meets a felt need in the
lives of our people, therefore they come.
The cultivation of the sou! life is a most
important matter especially in these days
of rush and strenuous endeavor. The
“Quiet Hour” on Thursday evening gives
us iucIi an opportunity. It is a “brook
by the wayside” from which we may
drink and refresh ourselves as we journey
along life’s dusty highway. It is a ‘ quiet
resting place” where for awhile we may
lay our bu.dens down. It is a season
wherein we renew our strength for the
battle of life, and find inspiration for the
common task. As next Sunday is “Holy
Communion” let our people plan to be
present on Thursday evening in large
, numbers and prepare themselves for the
hour . of sacred fellowship on Sunday
morning. We would like to see at least
12 more present. Will you be one of that
1 number?
All members of the North Church are
urged to be present at service next Sun
day morning, when there will be a recep
tion of new members, followed by Holv
Communion. This is a most important
service and the duty of attendance is
urged upon our people. Visitors who are
members of other churches are cordially
invited to attend and share with us in the
“breaking of bread.” "Do this in remem‘
brance of Me,” He said. Sermon by the
pastor. Soloist, Mrs. Leroy Paul. Or
ganist, Miss Amy Stoddard.
Don’t you hear us calling
down in Maine?
The summer dew is falling
down in Maine—
The latch-string’s hanging out
And the brooks are full of trout;
If you know what you’re about,
You’ll get your train.
You can cure your torpid liver,
down in Maine;
You can travel in your fliver,
down to Maine—
Crank her up and make her spit,
Make the old bird hit the grit—
in a week you’re feeling fit,
down in Maine.
Come to woods, and fields, and
shore, down in Maine.—
Eat a good, square meal once more,
down in Maine.
Bring the family—kids and all—
Don’t go back until next fall.
Listen! You can heal our call—
"uome to Maine!”
—Charles E. Rhoades
A telegram was received here last Sat
urday morning announcing the death of
William f'urber Bean at Kansas City,
Mo., Friday at 7 p. m, He had been ill
only a short time as his sister, Miss An
nie M. Bean, received a letter from him I
the previous Monday saying that he was
recovering from a very severe cold and
that the weather was excessively warm.
Mr. Bean was born in Belfast July 10,
1842, the son of Joseph and Maria A.
(White) Bean. He was an apt pupil and
completed his school life here, graduating
from the High school at the age of 17.
He became clerk for Daniel Faunce, who
conducted a grocery store in what is now
the Chase block on Main street. He be
came a member of the firm and later
bought Mr. Faunce’s interest. Some
years later he sold out and after an ex
tended visit in California he settled in
Bellville, Nev., where he was successful |
in mining operations. About 35 years
ago he returned to Belfast, but soon after 1
went to Kansas City, Mo., where he con
ducted a wholesale hat and cap business.
Several years ago he retired, but continu
ed his residence there at Hotel Victoria,
coming to Belfast every other summer.
He was a mail of genuine worth and was
highly esteemed in his home city. Only
a few knew how liberally he gave to
charities, etc. While here he was a con
stant attendant at the First Parish, Uni
tarian, Church. He was one of the own- j
ers for years in “The Pines” at Lake
Quantabacook. Few loved and knew the I
birds and flowers as well as Mr. Bean.
To reach home in apple blossom time was
a delight to him. His remains left Kan
sas City by express at 6 p. m., Saturday.
The funeral wdl be held at his late home
in this city today, Thursday, at 2.30 p.
m., with Rev. Harry Lutz officiating.
Mary Ann French, one of the oldest
residents of Lincolnville Beach, died at
her home Friday, June 18th. She was
born in Northport, January 1, 1825, the
daughter of George and Lucy (Drink
water) Turiel, and was the widow of
Philander S. Fiench, who has been dead
for many years. Mrs. French settled in
Lincolnville while a very young woman
and for nearly eighty years had been a
continuous resident of that town. She
had been very active until within the last
few years, possessing a remarkable mem
ory of ihe happenings and early residents
of her home town. She was the mothei
of eight children, four of whom survive,
Adelaide L., Edmund W., Walter R., and
Millard F. of this city. The funeral was
held at her late home Sunday, June 20, at
1 30 p. m., Rev. Horace Holt of Camden
officiating, the interment being in the
family lot at the Beach cemetery.
Cora N., wife of Frank B. Jackson,
died at their home in Montville, June
26th. She was born in Knox, Feb. 4,
1872, the daughter of John and Eliza
(Mixer) Mears. She had been a resident
of Montville the past thirty years. The
funeral took place at her late home Ti es
day at 10 a. m. \
Private Bert Harvey was called home

Special Features at Colonial Theatre Afternoon
and Evening—Tom Mix in “The Dare Devil.”
Colonial Theatre
Alice Brady, Gladys Leslie, Eugene
O’Brien, Tom Mix, Madlaine Creverse,
To Be Seen The Next Few Days.
“The Fear Market,” Thursday.
Realart’s six part feature, “The Fear
Market,” is the attraction for Thursday.
Alice Brady, the lilm fans’ favorite in
the part of Sylvia Stone, is called upon
to portray the gamut of human emotions
and does so with a tensity that is most
convincing and a subtlety which causes
the calloused critics to speak of her
work as ranking with the best ever seen
on the screen.
In no sense is “The Fear Market” a
preachment. It is an absorbing tale of
pathos and love which tugs at the heart
strings and keeps the spectator entranc
ed from start to finish.
The story is by Princess Troubetzkoy,
and when “The Fear Market” made its
appearance in print created a sensation
wherever English is read. It was ap
parent that the authoress based her
story on an expose which filled the front
pages of the press the world over.
Miss Brady is supported by a cast of
screen and stage actors well known to
theatre-goers for their histrionic ability.
“Too Many Crooks,” Friday.
Friday’s bill will be headed by “Too
Many Crooks,” featuring Gladys Leslie,
directed by Ralph Ince, supported by
Jean Paige, in an adaptation of E. J.
Rath’s popular novel by that name.
Charlotte houses a dozen crooks to get
“local color” for a play she is writing.
She gets the “color;” the crooks get
practically everything in the house, and
you get the heartiest laughs of a life
Eugene O’Brien, Saturday
In a play described as one of the most
lavishly produced pictures of the season,
Eugene O’Brien will again appear before
local patrons of the screen when his new
Selznick Picture, “The Broken Melody,”
opens a one-day engagement next Satur
“The Broken Melody” is a romantic
story of two young artists, a painter and
a singer, who att nipt to climb the ladder
of fame through the sacrifice of their
love for one another, only to find that
love is the force that drives all ambition
to success. It is a sympathetic tale of
bitter sacrifices and the unfaltering fidel
ity of two strong hearts, and is said to be
the most pleasing vehicle the popular
star has had.
Tom Miv, Monday
The big holiday program Monday will
be headef by Tom Mix in his greatest
stunt picture “The Dare Devil.” Others
on the bill include “Screen Smiles,” an
Outing Chester, and a Rolin comedy.
“Evangeline,” Tuesday
The mere mention that an elaborate
production of Henry W. Longfellow’s
immortal “Evangeline” is coming Tues
day should fill the theatre.
A Sunshine comedy also on Tuesday.
Madlaine t raverse, Wednesday
“The Hell Ship,” the William Fox pro
duction which comes Wednesday, is a big
tense, human drama, gripping and power
ful as it is appealing. Beautiful Madlaine
Traverse, the star, portrays the character
of a woman of the sea whose love for her
little sister surpasses love for self and for
the man who would give her the greatest
happiness in life. The play is filled with
big moments which hold the attention of
the audience from start to linish.
