It is with regret that we announce the
resignation of George C. Thompson, the
local manager of the Colonial Theatre
which took place Saturday night. Mr.
Thompson is the son of Dr. and Mrs. W
S. Thompson of Augusta and came here
four years ago to manage the Opera
House, then under lease to William B.
Williamson of Augusta, and has since re
mained here, although r.here have been
several changes in theatre ownership. He
is not only popular wi h the theatre pat
rons, but is a most exemplary young man
and a desirable citizen. He married Miss
Amy P. Sholes of this city and they have
one little son. It is sincerely hoped they
will remain in Belfast, although Mr.
Thompson has not announced what his
future plans are. He is succeeded at the
Colonial by George Nealey of Lowell,
Mass., for several years manager of the
Jewel Theatre of that city. He was ac
companied by Mrs. Nealey and they have
taken rooms at the Colonial House
Camp Quantabacook Opened. Dr.
and Mrs. O. S. Vickery of this city open

that city, Massachusetts and Connecti
cut; while H. P. Hermansen, director of
physical education at the Tower Hill
school in Wilmington, Del., brought boys
from Delaware, New Jersey and New
York. These directors will remain for
the summer and other college men will
arrive later to assist. Wiere is not a
better location in Maine for boys to spend
the summer. They will have hikes and
sports as well as studies, etc. Monday
was spent in racing and jumping con
tests and in the evening with a display of
fireworks, music, camp songs and cheers
Dr. Vickery will spend his evenings and
Sundays at the camp, coming to Belfast
on week days for office hours.
We have heard your welcome call,
“Come to Maine, ’’
And to bring the kids and all
Down to Maine.
Summer now has come at last,
Eo we made the windows fast,
ocked the door, and swiftly passed
Off to Maine.
We headed the old fliver
Down towards Maine,
And we crossed o’er many a river
Down towards Maine;
Saw the fields bedecked with flowers,
Oft refreshed by summer showers,
Thus we rode on several hours
Down through Maine.
Now we’ve reached our journey’s end
Down fn Maine;
Where Penobscot waters wend
Down in Maine.
We have driven many a mile
To greet our old friends with a smile,
We have come to stay awhile
Here in Maine.

Alfred Hazen Stoddard, the noted psychic
and lecturer, appeared before a large and
appreciative audience. After a wonder
ful rendition of Sir Edwin Arnold’s po
em, “She and He,” the speaker deliv
ered a splendid discourse on “The Com
ing Religion.” During the message pe
riod which followed, the tests were phe
nomenal and one could readily under
stand why Mr. Stoddard is termed Am
erica’s foremost psychic.—Communicat
Sunday’s Showers. The electrical
showers Sunday were the most severe
for several seasons and did much dam
age to the trees, gardens and streets.
On some of the side streets the water
rushed in torrents down them the full
length leaving only rocks and small peb
bles on the surface. On Spring street
near the school house the sidewalk was
washed away, the drain pipes broken
and a gutter about eight inches deep cut
into the side of the roadway. Branches
were torn from the shade trees and
thrown into the street. The hail stones
were very large and the flashes of light
ning blinding. Many were unable to
sleep and remained up until after mid
night. At Lake Quantabacook the water
rose several feet and the wind swept
in waves against the cottage doors and
windows at the upper end of the lake.

"Twenty-three and a Half Hours’ Leave,”
Remember that del’ghtfully clever story
by Mary Roberts Rhinehart that appeared
some time ago in the Saturday Evening
Post? “Twenty-three and a Half Hours’
Leave” was the name of it. Sure you
remember it, for even if you didn’t read
it, you heard all your friends talking
about it
It was about a rookie sergeant who
made a bet that he would have breakfast
with the General. And he had twenty
three and a half hours to accomplish his
purpose. When he started he didn’t have
the faintest idea how he was going to get
away with it. But he did it, and won the
general’s daughter besides.
Well, Thomas H. Ince has made a cork
ing picture out of it. It is exactly the
right medium with which to introduce
his two new stars, Douglas MacLean and
Doris May, whom you have probably read
about. It gives them both excellent parts.
We’re showing it on Thursdav.
A two-reel comedy and the Screen
Magazine will complete Thursday’s bill.
Alice Joyce, Friday
Beautiful Alice Joyce appears Friday in
one of her greatest plays, “The Sporting
Duchess,” a Drury Lane melodrama which
created such a sensation on the stage a
few years ago.
“The Sporting Duchess” is replete with
many thrilling moments which end in a
tremendous race scene, the famous Eng
lish Derby.
Also on Friday the 5th Episode of “The
Moon Riders” and a Burton Holmes
"The Peddler of Lies,” Saturday
Theatregoers who remember the terrific
battle Frank Mayo fought in “The Brute
Breaker.” can see him in another fistic
combat in “The Peddler of Lies,” the
Universal photodrama which will be |
shown at the Colonial Theatre Saturday.
But in the present production, Mayo
has his light in the home of a millionaire
instead of the Canadian woods.
“Rehoe Reporter,” a two reel comedy,
and News No. 38 complete’s Saturday’s
bill. _
"Should a Husband Forgive?” Monday
A drama of high life and deep shadows,
love, horse racing, fighting, trickery and
other sensational issues are combined
convincingly in this picture.
The question asked by “Should a Hus
band Forgive?” is a big one. A shadow
is cast across some lives and over the
threshhold of others because a good wife
assumes that husbands do not forgive.
The shadow lengthens wjien years later
the woman’s son, infected with the com
mon virus of propaganda, gives up the
girl he loves because appearances are
against her. The happy end is logical.
The all-star cast is uniformly strong.
Mrs. James K. Hackett plays the woman,
and Miriam Cooper, well known as the
heroine of other big scale productions, is
seen as the girl.-.
Also on Monday will be shown the
“Chester Outing,” “Flat Broke” comedy
and “Screen Smiles.”
Douglas Fairbanks, Tuesday.
Douglas Fairbanks will be seen in
“When the Clouds Roll By.” Here’s
your chance to see a real flood. The
older people remember the Johnstown
flood. Some of the young folks remem
ber Galveston’s. We all know of the
great flood when Noah built his ark.
There’s just a few of us who ever saw a
real flood. Doug Fairbanks was caught
in a regular one during the making of his
next United Artists production, “When
the Clouds Roll By,” and it forms the
background for some of the most spec
tacular stunts the athlete ever dared and
the most unique setting for a romance
you can ever conceive. Be sure and see
this picture also the De Heven’s comedy,
“Spring,” with the magazine 3860.
William Russell, Wednesday.
Do you love horses? If so be sure and
see the “Shod with Fire,” a swiftly mov
ing photoplay of the William Fox pro
duction, starring William Russell. He
came to her on a stallion shod with fire.
The marvelous understanding of a horse
possessed with almost human intelligence
saves a girl from a life worse than death
in Harold Titus’ splendid story, “Shod
With Fire,” produced as a photoplay by
William Fox with William Russell as
the star. See this powerful play which
opens at this theatre on Wednesday and
be thrilled with its rapid fire action.
The serial, “Lost City,’’ 10th episode,
and News 39 will also be shown on

ing in the Chapin Agency for the past
