The Sons of Veterans Auxiliary had a supper, program and Christmas tree last Monday evening with a large attendance including the children of the members. The remarks by Dr. George E. Morgan on the origin and significance of Christ mas were instructive and entertaining. Each child was given candy, pop corn and oranges which were delivered by a veritable Santa Claus. Later the older people were served candy and pop corn. News has been received here of the engagement of Miss Marian MacMullin and Henry Cameron Eldert, Esq., both ! i f New York city. Miss MacMullin is the daughter of the late Robert Burns and M. Belle MacMullin of 154 West 73rd street and the great-granddaughter of the late Charles Treadwell of Belfast, a former owner of the residence now the Wayside Tea House. She has been for years the summer guest of Miss Maude E. Barker. Mr. Eldert is a prominent New York lawyer. Thus far December has furnished weather more like April than mid winter. ! It is feared we may have a Christmas without snow, tut only time can tell : that. The Maine Farmers’ Almanac says that Tuesday, Dec. 21st, was the shortest day of the year and there will be no increase until Sunday, which will be only one minute longer. High-priced fuel and heavy clothing were easily placed on the conservable list giving all more faith in the adage that vox populi vox Dei. Our friends South and West for the winter send back glowing ac counts of conditions with them. From one on the Pacific coast we have the following delightful word picture: “We have a pleasant bungalow in a very charming locality quite close to the ocean. Huge palm and date trees line each side of the avenue while scarlet ger aniums and many tropical flowers make everything look bright and summery. We just love to watch the sunset over the Pacific as it is a very beautiful sight.” NEWS OF THE GRANGES Silver Harvest Grange, No. 66, of Waldo, elected officers for 1921 at their I regular meeting Dec. 16th, as follows: Master, Isaac G.

C Elliott, pastor; parsonage, 26 High street; telephone, 157-4. Morning worship at 10.45. Church school at noon. Men’s Forum at 12.15. Stereopticon lec ture at 7.30. Mid week devotional ser vice Thursday at 7.30 p. m The church was very prettily and artis tically decorated with wreaths and flow ers for the service last Sunday, and a very large congregation was present. The entire service was in keeping with the Chiistmas spirit which is moving in the hearts of the people and manifesting itself in so many ways. The solo, response, hymns, sermon and talk to the children were all appropriate to the gladsome sea son when the spirit of good will seems to possess the hearts of men. _ Christmas is the children’s time, and it was good to see so many young people present, and note their evident enjoyment of the pas tor’s talk specially prepared for them. It ] is to be suspectrd that the older folks— who after all are only children of a larger growth and a wider experience—also en- i joyed it, judging from the smiling faces seen on all sides. Well, it is good for us all to become children again in spirit, for we have sinned and grown old. But sure ly the Incarnation teaches us the wonder ful possibilities of Divine Personality, and opens up to us the opportunity of becom ing “as little children’’ and commencing life anew under our Heavenly Father’s love and care. Perhaps some of us long ing for “the dear dead days beyond re call” and sighing for the lost ideal of our childhood as we say: 0 to go back across the years long van ished, To have the words unsaid, the deeds undone, the errors banished; To be a little child again, whose page is yet undimmed, unblotted by a stain; And in the sunrise of primeval glory, to know That life has had its start again. ***** I may go back across the years long van ished, 1 may resume my childhood, Lord, in Thee, When in the shadew of Thy Cross are vanquished, All evils that encompass me.” Mr. A B. Stantial was the speaker at the Men’s Forum last Sunday and pre sented in a concise and admirable form the “Problems of the Farmers.” The discussion which followed brought out many interesting facts. One very no ticeable feature was the stress that was put upon service. We are learning in these days, as never before, the truth that we are all bound together in the bundle of life, and no man livelh to him self. The great test of life is to be, not how much money we can make, but how we can best serve the community. The speaker for next Sunday will be Edward Brassey-Brierly, subject: “The farmer in relation to the labor union and the con sumer.” Next Sunday evening there will be a stereopticon lecture on “TurKey and the Great War.” The pictures will be color ed, and the lecture promises to be one of the most interesting we have had. Every body should plan to be present. Strangers and visitors are cordially invited to the ! lecture and to all the services. The Christmas tree and Young People’s Sociable will be on Thursday afternoon and evening instead of Wednesday, as announced last week. All young people invited. Admission ten cents.

At 10.45 Sunday morning there will be a spec al program of music by the enlarged chorus, with Mr. Par quette, leader, and Mrs. Snow, organist. The children are greatly desired at this service and the public is cordially invited. At 7.30 a service that will delight every one has been prepared. The “Lovely Scenes of Bethlehem” will be presented with the aid of the chorus choir and or chestra. The story of Christmas will be ; told in living pictures and in Scripture and song. The first scene opens with the chorus, “Day is Dying in the West," and then is heard in the distance the duet, “We Would See Jesus,” expressive of the longing in many Hebrew hearts of old. The Scripture reading unfolds the story of the appearance of Joseph and Mary at Bethlehem for enrollment. They find no place in the inn, and the humble I stable is made to shelter the Madonna. In this scene a beautiful solo is sung, “No Room in the Inn,” by Mr. Parquette and a duet sung by Mary and Joseph: “My Father Knows.” The scene closes with the soft chanting: “Holy Night.” The second chapter of the story opens with the Bible story of Midnight on the plain of Bethlehem. The chorus sings “Joy to the World.” The shepherds ap pear and are seated on the ground. The descriptive choruses: “While Shepherds I Watched Their Flocks,” “Glory to God in the Highest,” and “Christians Awake” follow. While the shepherds go to find the Saviour then follows the number: 1 “O Little Town of Bethlehem." The third scene opens with a picture of the humble stable, Miss Morris taking the part of the Madonna. The Scripture story is recited and a number by the chorus follows: “Hail to the Lord’s An nointed.” A group cf children join the Christmas scene and sing: “Away in a Manger,” by Luther. Now comes the ladies’ quartette, “I Love Him,” by Fos ter. The shepherds enter and kneel, and rising tell their story of wonder. They return to their flocks glorifying God. The fourth scene depicts the coming of the wise men from the East. The Scrip ture story is read and the star flashes out. The chorus sings, “With Gladness Men of Old.” The wise men appear bearing gifts. A baritone solo is sung: “We Three Kings of the Orient.” They worship the Saviour, present their gifts ana wun appropriate solos tell their story. When they have finished there is heard the tender far off refrain, “Saviour, Thy Dying Love.” The scene closes with an inspiring chorus by the choir and orches tra, and the triumphant hymn, “O Come all ye Faithful.” The public is cordially invited. On Monday evening, Dec. 27th, there will be a festival for the boys of the church and Sunday school and on Satur day alternoon a festival for the children and their mothers.

JONES & WHITTIER, Proprietors. ' Colonial Theatre Those youthful rays of sunshine, Doug MacLean and Doris May, will be our at traction today, in their latest breezy comedy, “Let’s Be fashionable.’’ This time they are a pair of newlyweds and have an uproarious time tiering to keep up with the hot pace at a jazzy summer resort. Don’t miss this one. “Sooner or Later," with Owen Moore as the star, is the attraction Friday. Lo cal photoplay fans will find it much to their liking. The picture was made for laughing purposes only—and it is serving its purposes. A maze of cases of mis taken identity keep things moving rapid ly from the first scene to the last and through them all runs a pleasing little love story. Our bill for Saturday is a William S. Hart production, “Sand!” This is a Paramount-Artcraft picture, and shows Mr. Hart in one of the Western roles that have made him famous. It’s a mighty story of tbe struggle between two men—one who was all “Sand” and one who was all “dirt.” Cecil B. DeMille’s latest production, “Why Change Your Wife?” is coming Monday and Tuesday. If you have seen “Male and Female,” “For Better, For Worse,” ‘ Don’t Change Your Husband,” there is nothing that can be said that will not sound weak beside your own remem brance. -wny Gnange lour Wife?” is a story of married life. It is staged in the rich and lavish manner of all the DeMille pro ductions. Its leading players are Thomas Meighan and Gloria Swanson, who played the leading roles in “Male and Female.” Bebe Daniels, who scored such a hit in "Everywoman,” is also in the cast, as well as a host of other favorites, such as Theodore Kosloff, the famous Russian dancer, Sylvia Ashton, Clarence Geldart and Maym Kelso. The story was written by William DeMille, the scenario by Sada Cowan and Olga Printzlau. It is a Paramount Artcraft. Do you like Shirley Mason? If not, there can be only one reason—you never have seen her. The petite and pretty Fox star is to open at this theatre on Wednesday in "The Little Wanderer," described as the romance of a dainty girl from nowhere. And the photoplay is as dainty as the star. Don’t miss it—if you do you will regret the fact. KNOX Mrs. Cora Vose is sick with the measles. Mrs. Betsey Ingraham is in Lewiston attending the State Grange. Mr. and Mrs. W. K.

When a young girl she came to Belfast, where on Oct. 4, 1892, _ she married Mr. Stephenson and their wedded life has been prosperous and happy.
