LILIAN ROBBINS CHASE The sudden death of Lilian Robbins, wife of F. Wallace Chase, at their sum mer home on Lincolnville avenue in this city Saturday at 8 p. m., caused universal sadness and regret. Her family and most intimate friends realized her serious con dition, but hoped that her life might be spared for years. Mrs. Chase was born Uec. 9, 1867, in the home in which she died, the daughter of Levi L. and Matilda (Wight) Robbins. She attended the city schools, graduating from the B. H. S. in 1884, and a few years later graduated from the Gorham Normal school. After teaching at Citypoint and the Hayford schools for some time she became an as sistant in the Belfast High schooi and was teaching there when Mr. Chase be came its principal. The friendship begun there culminated in their marriage July 5, 1893, at the home of her parents on Miller street. The first two years of their married life was spent in Lewiston and three in Lawrence,Mass., where Mr. Chase taught. Since then they have resided in Newtonville, Mass., while he is master of the Bigelow school in Newton. A life student, possessed of rare judgment and executive ability she was always a potent inuuence for high ideals particularly in the home and church circles. The friends of her early youth were as loyal to her as those formed in later years in her New tonville home. Never sparing herself she was anxious and ever ready to do her part in a womanly and helpful manner. She became a member of the Belfast Baptist church and later transferred her name to the Immanuel Baptist church of Newton. After organizing that church’s Woman’s Association she be came its first president. She was inter ested in and worked for the Red Cross and the Inter-church movement; an active member and former president of the Travelers’ Club and belonged to the Stearns Settlement Association. She had registered and was looking forward to the November election. It is in the fam ily circle her council and assistance will be sadly missed by her surviving husband, three children—Heloise, a student at Mt. Holyoke College, Elizabeth Files and Frederick Robbins Chase; two sis ters, Mrs. A. T. Ringold of Northboro, Mass., Mrs. Paul DeLaney of Brocton, N. Y.; one brother, Laforest L. Robbins of Belfast and an aged aunt, Miss Harriet N. Wight, who had lived with her several years. The funeral was held in the Bel fast Baptist church at 1.30 p. m. Tues day. Her pastor, Rev.

COOMBS CO., Masonic Temple, High 8treet, Belfast. A Munificent Gift Ralph Cross Johnson, a native and summer resident of Belfast, has present ed hia rare and valuable collection of pictures to the National Gallery of Art at Washington, D. C. While a resident of Washington, his early life and seasons of recreation have been spent in Belfast in the ancestral home on Primrose Hill, one of the most beautiful locations in the city by the sea. It has been suggested that these early associations with pictur esque surroundings laid the foundation for Mr. Johnson’s love for and conse quent knowledge of the genuine works of art he has for a life time been collecting. While there has never been a reference 10 the money value of his gift good judges have placed it at over a million dollars at the present time; and it will in crease rapidly with coming years. The September issue of Art and Archae ology, published at Washington by The Archaeological Institute of America, is devoted entirely to Mr. Johnson and his gift with twenty-four full-page illustra tions in doubletone. The text is by George B. Rose of Little Rock, Arkan sas, a life long student of Renaissance art, author of Renaissance Masters, The World’s Leading Painters and other booka of art and literature. The following quotation is from the magazine’s editorial note: “Mr. Johnson is a graduate of Harvard College and of Harvard Law School, has been admitted to the bar in the State of Maine and also in the District of Columbia. He has made numerous visits to Europe and has spent much time in the Art Museums of England, France, Germany, Russia, Italy ana spam, tiis collection has been acquired gradually and all bis later acquisitions have been of the old mas ters. Some were purchased in London and Paris; others in New York, where in many cases he was fortunate enough to have first choice of works arriving from Europe. His is not, therefore, what is called a ‘dealer's collection.’ He thor oughly agrees with the opinion of the late John G. Johnson of Philadelphia, who once remarked that he 'was ‘very careful to buy only what he considered a great work of art.’ In making purchases he has depended very largely on his own judgment as to the authenticity and art quality of the work offered. He has never been a buyer of more or less cele brated names. Few if any of his acces sions have been on public exhibition until installed in the National Gallery, where a choice room is devoted exclu sively to their display.” Mr. Rose says in his introduction: “It is easy for a man to leave his pictures to a public gallery after his death. He knows that he is thus erecting to his memory one of the noblest and mo„t enduring of monuments, and that he is insuring the beloved objects against destruction. But for the living art lover to part with his treasures is hard indeed. A thing of beauty is a joy forever, and the longer we own it the closer it twines itself about our hearts. A true lover of art is willing to lend his pictures to the public, that others may share his joy for a time. Occasionally, out of a large number, he will give one to some public gallery. But rarely indeed does he do more until forced by the hand of death to yield them up. The gift of Mr. Ralph Cross Johnson of twenty-four choice old masters to our National Gallery has been but seldom paralleled. They must be forever kept together as a memorial of such unex ampled generosity. It is a collection rare for its even excellence. Each picture is a good and, indeed, a notable specimen of the master’s style.” The frontispiece is an example of the British school, a portrait of Archibald Skirving, Esq., by Sir Henry Raeburn, R. A., 1756-1833. Among the most beau tiful are the Madonna and child with St. John and an angel, by Sebastiano Main ardi, who died in 1513, of the Florentine school; the mystic marriage of St. Cath erine of Alexandria by Giacomo Francia* 1486-1557, of the Bolognese school; por traits by Lotto and Titian from the Vel netian school; Lord Mulgrave, in naval uniform by Thomas Gainsborough, R. A., 1747-1788, of the British school; The Virgin and Child by Bernard Van Orley, 1493-1542, of the Flemish school; Madon na and Child by Govaert Flinck, 1615 1660, of the Dutch school; the Holy Fam ily with St. Elizabeth, by Peter |Pau Rubens, 1577-1640, of the Flemish school. I There are several most beautiful land scapes, ruins, etc., from the Britial school, notably "the family at the vil lage door” by Gainsborough, and the most exquisite "grand Italian landscape; Sunset Glow,” by Richard Wilson, R. A., 1714-1782; and “Edinburgh; a painting*ol sunlight and air” by J. M. W. Turner, R. A., 1775-1851. All these pictures were from the Wash ington residence of Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and they have superintended the banging of them in the Art Gallery. The Universalist State Convention. The first State convention to be held with the Belfast U niversalist church for at least twenty-five years, was opened Monday. The ladies of the parish fur nished a supper under the direction of the committee, Mrs. John A. Fogg, chair man, in the vestry at 6 p. m. Here the delegates and others taking part in the program were assigned to rooms, etc. It was a gathering marked with pleasant reunions and also of new acquaintances. Tuesday’s dinner was served in Red Men’s hall by the Daughters of Pocahon tas; supper Tuesday by Primrose Chapter, O. E. S., in the church vestry; dinner and supper Wednesday were served by the ladies of the Methodist church in the Methodist vestry. The opening session at 7.30 was under the direction of the Universalist Com rades, their new association composed of the men of the denomination. The church was decorated with large flags draped on either side of the rostrum with an abun dance of bright red dahlias combined with foliage in vases and jardinieres. The music was conducted by Rev. C. H. Temple of Biddeford with Mrs. Thomas E. Bowker of Belfast as organist. Rev. Arthur A. Blair of Livermore Falls, presi dent of the convention, had general super vision of the program, etc. The first address was delivered by Rev. Ashley A. Smith of Bangor on “The Chal lenge of the Manhood of Today” from the text, “man, stand on your feet, I have something to say to thee.” He was at his best, which means helpfulness, en thusiasm and needed criticism of the constructive kind. It was a look forward with the laymen of the denomination in the Murray Crusade, etc. Mr. Fred C. Carr of Providence, R. I., National Secretary of the Comrades, gave an excellent address on The Twentieth Century Limited. He was practical from first to last and was a fine example of the strong influence of the laymen of every religious denomination in the pres ent day forward movement. Tuesday morning was devoted to bus> ness including address of welcome; re sponse and president’s message; official reports of executive committee, superin tendents of churches, treasurer, auditors, trustees, coramiteee on Evangelism, and fellowship committee; pledges for con vention endowment; fraternal greetings, the Sunday School Association, West brook Seminary. Tuesday afternoon the 26th annual ses sion of the Women’s Universalist Mis sionary Society was held with an enthu siastic attendance and the usual routine work of encouraging reports and the election of officers, etc. The most interesting feature of the afternoon was the living and vital ex ample of what their church is doing in the Blackmere school in Tokio, Japan, when the dainty, intelligent and pleasing little Miss Matsu Yoyama of Japan gave a brief address. She wore a native dress of purple silk with girdle of black, orna mented with colored embroideries. She has been in ibis country since last May and has been attending the summer school at Smith’s College. Later she will take up settlement work in Boston and then go back to Tokio to do her part in Chris tianizing her people. She spoke of ihe bright little girl of 14 years, “Chegno,” whom the Universalists of Maine are educating and expressed the belief that she would be bright enough to profit by what was done for her. Only a slight accent marred her speech and her com mand of English is excellent. Once in a while in her enthusiasm in describing the school work and con ition of the children of Japan she would amuse her audience, but even then it was apparent that she was benefiting by her errors. The even ing session was more particularly on the Universalist belief and influence and the addresses were listened to with the clos est of attention. Wednesday forenoon was devoted to general conference, business and com mittee reports. The evening session was devoted to the work of the Y. P. C. U. with an address by Rev. Stanley Man ning of Boston, their National Director. Thursday forenoon will occur the fif teenth annual session of the Maine Y. P. C. U. Rev. and Mrs. A. T. Ringold of North boro, Mass., Mrs. Paul DeLaney and son Roderick of Brocton, N. Y., and the Chase children of Newtonville, Mass., were called to Belfast by the funeral of Mrs. F. Wallace Chase. Mrs. DeLaney and little son drove through in their car. The Newest and Most Attractive Apparel for Fall IS ARRIVING BY EVERY EXPRESS MRS.
