Miss Ruby Gray, who is teaching at Swans Island, arrived home Saturday for the Easter vacation. Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Cunningham spent the week-end in Prospect the guest of her sister, Miss H. K.. Marden. Chester Curtis of Searsport moved a camp first of the week to the lot he recently bought of W. N. Briggs on the west side of Swan Lake. iA. 1. Nickerson, who has been at Au gpta the past two weeks, arrived home Friday night and remained until after town meeting, tie returned to Augusta Tuesday morning accompanied by Mrs. Nickerson, who will spend the remain der of the week there. Her sister, Mrs. T. D. Nickerson, will be housekeeper during her absence. The remains of little Priscilla Nicker son, who died at her home in Everett, Mass., March 11th, were brought to Swanville Monday forenoon tor inter ment in Green Lawn Cemetery. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. E Nickerson, accompanied the remains and returned to Belfast to take the early train lues day morning. The entire community extend their sympathy to them in their great sorrow It is doubly hard for them as they have lost their two youngest children in less than ten months. Pris cilla spent last summer with her grand mother, Mrs. A J. Chase, and aunt Julia and was an unusually attractive child, always sunny and ladylike, the pet and pride of the family. She looked the picture of health and did not com plain of feeling ill even when taken to the hospital, but showed signs of hernia. The operation proved to be of a very serious and complicated nature, and was unusual in a child not yet six years old. Besides her parents, grandmother and aunt, she is survived by four sisters and one brother and a large circle of friends to mouru their loss. We have to think it’s better so And we can only say That God who gave this young life Hath taken her away. C. M. N.

THE CITY NATIONAL BANK OF BELFAST BELFAST, MAINE The Riorden Pulp and Paper Co. Moving Pictures Enjoyed by the Courtesy i of President Wescott of the The City Na tional Bank. ] There was a large and interested audi ence at the Colonial Theatre last Satur day at 4.15 to see the worth while pic tures of one of the largest pulp and paper concerns on this continent. Mayor Wes cott briefly explained the reason of show ing the pictures, as the City National Bank is handling and has advertised in The Journal its dealings with this im mense company. It. is situated in Onta rio on the Ottawa River and was founded in 1867 by John Riordon. In 1863 he was joined by his brother Charles and began in the manufacture of print paper, pro ducing one half a ton daily. In 1867 they built their first mill, at that time the best in America; and produced ten tons per day. In 1886 Charles Riordon and Governor Russell brought to this country the sulphite pulp process. Other prop erties were taken over in 1920 and they are now producing 132,000 tons per year. They sell 34 concerns in the United States and Canada over 50,000 tons each year. They own or control 12,105 square miles of timber land of seven and one half million acres. They have issued six and one-half million bonds, aad the cost of the property securing these bonds is over $14,250,000. The total properties and equities of the plant is estimated at $50,000,000. The Kipawa plant is said to produce sulphite paper at $10 per ton cheaper than other plants. The pictures showed the process from the rafting of the logs to the mill to the finished pro duct of the pulp wrapped in bundles and placed on the cars for shipment to the paper mills. It is all done by power with comparatively few workmen. The logs are barked in water saving all the wood, are separated by weight in almost a mag ical manner, cut in chips with lightning i rapidity, chips separated and then ground. The immensity and apparent value of the machinery from the sluices to the power house were a revelation to all, even those familiar with the history of paper making. The scenic views were greatly enjoyed especially those taken from the porch of the office quarters, [ The few dwellings showed a nucleus of a i future picturesque town. A human touch was added when the Riordon special train arrived with an excursion of hundreds of men from all over the country interested in this and like concerns. Human nature, courteous and otherwise, was seen as the men were presented with roses by two dainty little girls bearing baskets and garlands of flowers. All who saw the pictures felt indebted to Mayor Wescott for an hour of instruction on an^udustry which is a sealed book to the majority. ISLESBORO Two close and exciting games were ; played at Dark Harbor, March 12th, ] when the Islesboro High boys beat the i Castine Normal boys, 27 to 23, but the : Castine Normal girls won out over the : Islesboro girls by a single point, 11 to 10.

BELMONT Mystic Grange, Centre Belmont, met in regular session Saturday evening, March 12th. In spite of bad traveling, 51 members were present with 4 visitors. The first and second degrees were con ferred on six candidates and two applica tions received. After all business was ■ disposed of Miss Arline Morse in a few , well chosen words in behalf of the grange j presented Past Master Edmund Brewster j with a Past Master’s jewel, in apprecia ; tion of nine years of faithful service as master. Mr. Brewster was very much surprised, but responded feelingly, thank ing the grange for the gift. After closing ' in form all entered into the spirit of a social good time. What’s Doing at the Colonial TO-DAY Maine Transplanted When Maurice Tour neur Made his "Deep Waters-” Transplanting a New England fishing village to California was one of the tasks of Maurice Tourneur in producing his new Paramount picture, ‘‘Deep Waters,” which will be seen at the Colonial Thea tre. Those who have read F. tlopkinson Smith’s novel, “Caleb West, Master Diver,” from which the picture was adapted, will recall that the Beenes are laid on and under the Atlantic and on the rocky coast of Maine. Mr. Tourneur did not have the Atlantic Ocean handy, but he had the Pacific and also a section of California that to all in tents and purposes was the rockbound re plica of the New England shore. So the picture was “shot” there, with a real ship wrecked upon the rocks to provide the main thrill of the action. Barbara Bedford, Jack Gilbert and Broerken Christians are included in the cast of “Deep Waters.” FRIDAY KATCHA-KOO. SATURDAY It is a story of the California Red woods that is to be the attraction at the Colonial Theatre on Saturday. “The Man Who Dared” is the title, and the star is William Russell, one of the most virile and attractive of screen actors,who in Lhis story, which was written especial ly for him, is given every opportunity to impress, not only by his wonderful manly build and strength, but also by his re markable dramatic ability. In “The Man Who Dared,” Russell plays a rough and ready foreman of a lumber camp. He is the leader of a gang of hard drinking workmen who have never known a single good influence. There is a pretty and thoroughly interest ing romance woven in. MONDAY Special engagement for Monday, Tues day and Wednesday Lutringer Stock Co. in repertoire of popular plays. See adv. in other column for plays, dates and prices. If you care for the real human interest drama, the one that will grip you at the start and hold you until the last close-up, don't fail to see Hobart Bosworth in his latest production, “His Own Law,” pro duced by J. Parker Read and released by Goldwyn. “His Own Law” is a drama of friend ship between men and gives Hobart Bos worth one of the best roles that has fal len to his lot and he gets out of it every bit of entertainment and acting value that it contains. TUESDAY. “The Point of View.” This picturized play, with Elaine Ham merstein as its star, manages to hold the interest largely.because of its careful pro duction and good char cterizations on the part of the cast. It is a story of New Tfork life, full of interesting and real people, which may compensate for the lack of dramatic action. Its plot is large ly built upon the misunderstanding of two people, and with dialogue absent, it does not make a gripping screen drama. WEDNESDAY Tom Moore Has Funny Part in “Stop Thief” “Stop Thief!” the Goldwyn picture which comes Wednesday is said to be one of the best comedy vehicles ever in terpreted by Tom Moore. As a legiti mate stage offering, “Stop Thief!” made record runs and delighted audiences wherever it was presented. As a picture it has doubled its interest, and is a pro gression of ridiculous incidents from start to finish. BEAUTIFUL SETTINGS SEEN IN KISMET New Standard in Photo-Plays Set by Rob ertson-Cole in Otis Lkinner Film. One of the most striking things in con nection with the Robertson-Cole produc tion of “Kismet” with Otis Skinner play ing his celebrated role of Hajj the Beg gar and which opens at the Colonial ! Theatre on Thursday, April 7th, for a run of two days is the wealth of color, beauty and detail used in the making of it. An almost innumerable number of motion picture producers have taken op ; tions on filming “Kismet” but one by ’ one they were forced to drop the propo | sition due to the large amount of money necessary to make it, for each one real ized that it was an utter impossibility to film “Kismet” in a cheap way. When Robertson-Cole agreed to make the pic ture with Mr. Skinner they assured the latter that they would give the story the finest possible presentation. That they I did this is the unanimous opinion of | everyone who has seen the picture. Town Elections BELMONT.

In calling the meeting to order Emery B. Williams, moderator, requested that all bow their heads in silent prayer for the one who had been among them so many years and was now gone. The tribute was very touching, for Mr. Gilkey was beloved by all who knew him. CENTER MONTVILLE S. S. Erskine is very ill. Mrs. L. S. Moore is at home from Portland.
