The Glendale, Calif., Evening News of a recent date has the following interest ing article concerning Freeman McGil very Kelley, a former Stockton Springs boy and also well known in Belfast: “Many Glendale friends' attended the formal opening of the Glendale Florist Shop, 120 South Brand boulevard, on Saturday. Mr and Mrs. Kelly received many compliments and congratulations on the artistic arrangement of their dis play, in which the rich autumnal colors predominated. A climbing vine over the lattice separating the display room from the workroom reminded one of the vines ‘back East” when Jack Frost ar rays them in brilliant hues. The win dows were resplendent with masses of great shaggy chrysanthemums, one of royal purple, the other golden yellow. A number of fantail gold fish in an aquari um in the purple window were the touch that made a |Veasing note of contrast and happy canaries in golden cages above the flowers in each window sang solos, duets and choruses to entertain the guests. Beautiful varieties of cyclamen, pom pom chrysanthemums iu a variety of deep colorings, red cosmos and an unusual foliage plant, besides the usual roses, carnations and ferns were among the plants that attracted the attention of the guests. Mr. and Mrs. Kelly are well known in Glendale, their nursery and florist shop having been established here for some time. They had a display room next door to their present one, but mov ed to th s location in the Glendale Theatre building because of its greater attractiveness and suitability for their hue of w'ork. They promise that they will give Glendale a flower shop second to none in Los Angeles.” Our 1920 Christmas Club Members RECEIVE MORE THAN $19,000.00 A|: ' 'crease of $10,000 Over Our First Year — ■ 1921 ■?€* ^iub Membership Now Open URST PAYHENT DUE DEC. 20th h!

Mid week, devotional service Thursday at 7.30 p. m, I “The time draws near the birth of ; Christ,”.and the Christmas spirit is al ready in the air. Our homes, our stores and places of business already show signs of preparation for a fitting celebra tion of the auspicious day. Friends are thinking of each other and secretly pur chasing gifts to present as tangible evi deuce of their thought, and little chil dren are looking forward with impatient expectancy to the day which, to them, is “the gladdest day oi all the year.” Let us see to it that amid all the innocent mirth »f this “festive season,” we do not forget to pay our homage to the “new-bom Ring.” Not only the “wise men of the East,” but the greatest, the wisest, the best men of all ages have J counted Him worthy of worship and hon or. Let us then, as citizens of this great Christian country, and remembering that j all that is highest and best in our nation al life we owe to “the Babe of Bethelem,” plan to be present in the churches of our city on Christmas Sunday and thus seek to show that at heart we are still faith ful to the Christ-Child.

These lectures are free to the public and are greatly en joyed by those who attend. To hear such lectures is indeed a privilege which ought to be eagerly seized by our young people. It is to be hoped many of them will plan to be present during the winter. The subject of the stereopticon lecture next Sunday evening will be “Some Glimpses of the Frontier.” A very profitable time was spent last Sunday morning at the Men’s Forum in ! discussing “The City Man’s Obligations to the Farmer.” The subject was intro duced by Mr. alph Hayford who treated , it in a very exhaustive fashion. Many of the men present were practical far mers and their contributions to the dis cussion were of great interest 2nd value. It is felt that much good must come from the frank exchange of thought on these occasions. Dr. W. L. West pre [ sided in his usual efficient manner and dropped pearls of wisdom which enriched the minds of those present. The speaker for next Sunday is Mr. A. B.

Railroad Lease A committee consisting of President Selwyn Thompson, representing the Bel fast & Moosehead Lake Railroad Com pany; Alderman R. L. Cooper, Council man Ralph Ii. Howes, and myself, repre senting the city, were in conference in Portland on Saturday, December 11th, with Mr. Maurice McDonald, President of the Maine Central Railroad Company, regarding the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad Company lease situation. Mr. McDonald outlined to the com mittee very frankly and fully the operat ing, earning and financial conditions which confront the Maine Central at this time. He advised that the Maine Cen tral was in no situation at the moment to consider a permanent adjustment of the relations by either lease or purchase, but that it was the desire of the Maine Central, when conditions were ironed out, to purchase the road f. r cash or its equivalent. He suggested a temporary extension of the lease at the same price of $36,000 per year, either party having the option to discontinue the arrangement on six months’ notice. This suggestion appeal ed to the Committee as probably the most practical course to be followed at this time, and undoubtedly the City Gov ernment will recommend to the Direc tors of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad Company that such an exten sion of the present lease be made. The matter of obtaining appioximately the correct estimate of the earnings of our branch was also considered, and defi nite steps are to be taken to obtain that information. On behalf of the Belfast City Council, C. W. Wescott, Mayor. The regular meeting of the Women’s Alliance of the Unitarian church will be held this, Thursday, afternoon at the home of Mrs. George A.
