GILKEY Belfast friends of Lincoln N. Gilkey were shocked Saturday morning to learn that he had committed suicide Friday about noon at his home in Islesboro. His body was discovered hanging in the barn by his daughter Gladys. His life was extinct and there was no apparent cause for the act although he had suffered at times from the effects of an accident while working in the woods about a year ago, when a falling limb struck him on the head causing unconsciousness for some time. It is also thought that he had never fully recovered from the shock of the sudden death of his eldest daugh ter, Mrs. Jessie Rackliffe of Belfast. Mr. Gilkey was one of Islesboro’s most prom inent and popular residents, a general favorite with young and old. At the June primaries in 1920 he lacked only one vote of being the Republican nomi nee to represent his class in the State Legislature For years he had been tax collector and notary public for Islesboro, had been on the board of selectmen, was a member of Island Lodge, F. & A. M., of Lone Star Chapter, O. E. S., of the Islesboro Board of Trade and of its Im provement Society. At all times he could be depended on to do his part in whatever pertained to the welfare of his home town. Several years ago he retired from the grocery business in Dark Har bor undei the firm name of Gilkey & Hatch, and engaged in farming, con ducting a milk route in the summer for (the summer residents. Several years ago he built a very comfortable new house fand his home life was unusually happy and contented. His wife, formerly Miss Belle Farnsworth, and their two daugh ters, Mrs. Harry Pendleton of Islesboro and Miss Gladys, who lived at home; and one brother, Roscoe Gilkey of Brewer, survive. His age was about 60 years. The bearers were Messrs. Calvin Kim ball, W. E. Hatch, W. M. Coombs and Amasa Williams.

A. S. HEAL. Katcha-Koo Katcha-Koo, tbe production which is to be given March 18th afternoon and evening bv the Senior class of the High school, brings yie atmosphere of the far East. There is something doing every minute. Those who have seen the re hearsals declare that such a thing as a "dull spot" is positively unknown. In addition to the hilarious farce-comedy, the pageantry, tableau and scenic effects will leave nothing to be desired. And it is also said that the costuming is really superb. Mrs. Georgia S. Parker, at the head of the local committee, is working hard and her assistants, Verna Greenlaw', cnairman of the advertising committee; Bartlett Whiting of publicity; Principal Harry A.

The chorus comprises the following: Oriental Ladies—Charlotte Knowlton, Lillian Davis, Mildred Heal, Hazel Nick erson, Virginia Dutch, Marvel Orchard, Jennie Spear, Mona BurgeBS, Annie Omar and Idres Rogers.

The Columbia Trio, with Grace Thomp- ; son and Katherine Spear as Columbi-j ans, and James Morse as Uncle Sam, will lead the Sammies. This will be a most impressive spectacle, as there are over sixty children in this group. Musical numbers of exceptional inter est are “Susquehanna Sue,” with Char lotte Knowlton in the title role, and the ! Polo girls and boys including Agnes Chapmaa, Clara Edwards, Ruth Leman, Helen Plaisted, Susie Perkins, Louise! Gray, Gladys Keene, Alyce Cramer, Ker mit Nickerson, Orland Orchard, Everard Bailey.
