Sherman. Underdid', Cape Rosier, Maine March 19, 1921. Madam President, and Ladies cf The Alliance: in Hindustanee there is a word which travelers quickly adopt. It is “Dilcusha,” meaning “heart-expanding.” It is a glad j dening sort of word, and it comes to me as I begin this bit of a greeting to the Belfast Alliance, the unusual group of heart-ex pa tiding women, who gave the | stranger within their gates such coidial ! welcome and so many happy hours a year ago. Though I can never feel myself a j stranger in beautiful Belfast. The goiileu j days and glad memories of my girlhood | vacations spent there will always make I me feel that 1 “belong.” Perhaps it is atavism, too, for the sturdy pioneer whose 1 royal grant of land started the town, who named it, who was chairman of the first ! board of selectmen, who commenced the lirst town book—now in the City Hall | safe—and who led the refusal to take the ! oath of allegiance to the Crown, when the I Penobscot Expedition came up the Bay,— j that John Brown, “of the noble house of ! Gordon and Lennox,” was my maternal j great-great-grandfather, and always I’ve been proud of him for having had the good judgment to put Belfast on the map! It is no message from the Orient I send I to you today, no scent of sandal or tu | meric to recall memories of thronged ba I zaars or desert dunes. It is just Maine air which I’ve been breathing all winter, but the balsam of evergreens and the iodine of sea-weeds are incomparable tonics physically, and clean stimulants mentally, and the season nas gone all too speedily in this peaceful little valley on the Rosebush Cape. Imagination routs loneliness. I suppose the old French ex plorer who named the cape, rounded it on a June day when the wild roses were in bloom, but this winter, with one’s back to the Bay, it has been easy to fancy one’s self in some tiny Swiss valley, a snowy intervale walled by steep cliffs, stretches of unbroken forest, even a red-pointed church spire most picturesquely placed. And on the few mornings when there have been frosted window-panes, I’ve had tree ferns and white orchids on mine! “Why folks complain of loneliness is strange lo me, I must confess. W hy, every brook and every tree And every twinkling star I see, Hath something good to say to me ” 1 think it is a heritage both from my west of England father and my State of Maine mother, but it has often been em phasized to me that I am a truthful woman! So I am forced to admit that there is March mud, just now, on Cape Hosier roads—but the sky is June blue! You will remember that “ Two men looked out from prison bars, One saw1 mud, the other stars.” It seems to me a pretty good idea, to forget the mud and to remember the sky and stars. And to be thankful in these troubled days of turmoil ana famine and revolution and unrest, for our steady going old State of Maine, for its peace and its plentiful resources, its opportuni ties and solidarity. God bless it! So will you join me in this “Health” once proposed by Maine’s own Thomas B. Heed; “ Here’s to the State of Maine, I he laud of the bluest skies, The greenest earth, The richest air, The strongest, and what is better, the sturdiest men, The fairest, and what is best, the truest women under the sun!” My salaams and salutations. —Mary Fisher Bosson Miss Barker read the letter from Mrs. Augusta S. Frederick, the Alliance’s old est member, who is spending the winter in Daytona, Fla., making her 22nd season in the South. She said in part: “We left home Feb. 7th with every thing snow bound and the mercury in the thermometer in what might be called “low company” but a week’s journey found us in the midst of everything beau | tiful.” The immense crowds of people | were unparalelled in her 21 years o. southern travel and it seemed as if every body in the United States with all their , relatives had been seized with a desire to j go south. She went first to Orlando, but ; the party were unable to find accommo | dations That city was entertaining a ur Regular Prices ^8c lb. i Swift’s Pride Washing Powder, 5 pkgs„ ib.

The noise was deafenin'g, but her infirmity was a blessing for once as she could sleep. They went directly to Daytona, where they have the best of accommodations in a small bungalow with all modern con , veniences and good neighbors. Her de scriptions of the city, the climate, its i trees and flowers were vivid in word pic tures. bruit is very plentiful and cheap and as she says “if there is one thing in the world to eat that is cheap it is one’s duty to eat it even if obliged to sit up nights to accomplish it.” “We pay 25 cents per quart for milk which seems a little steep.” She closed with reference to the Alliance year’s work, its able presi dent, the new ticket, etc., and gave a general invitation for all to visit her on her birthday, March 26th. Miss Barker also read a short note from Miss Inez E. brawlord, now in Stillwa ter, enclosing an Easter offering for the Alliance. Mrs. Ben Hazeltine read several ex- i tracts from letters written by her daugh ter, Mrs. Richard E. Shaw, one from j Canton, China, and the other from Yok ohoma, Japan. While at the former city she and Mr Shaw were guests on the house boat of an English friend. She says: “It was the pleasantest party I have attended in the far East. Mr. Smythe, a young English bachelor, ask ed us out on Ins houseboat. The party consisted of five others besides Mr. Smythe and ourselves: A young Mr. and Mrs. Cadman, also English, Mr. May, a delightful young English bach elor, a Mr. Harrison, American, and Mr. Woodall, also American, and attach ed to the consulate Here. The houseboats are* white two-decked affairs, somewhat larger tffan the usual pleasure launch. In front below is a good-sized deck and be hind that a few steps down is a room with bunks and cupboards on either sid.-, beyond that an ice box and small kitch en. On some of them is a wheel which the coolies tread to move the boat. We were towed by a small launch, however. The upper deck has a lot of cushions and is used after dark. We started soon after six one hot afternoon, but before we had been gone very long we struck a bretze and kept in it the rest of the way. The sunset was lovely and a little later a new moou came up. Gradually the crowded houses of Canton dropped away on either i side and finally we were up among the : hills, where there were only a few huts and native boats. About eight we drop ped anchor and dinner was served, a real dinner in E glish style, no picnic. We ; had soup, fish, roast beef and vegetables, asparagus salad, ice cream, cake, coffee and fruit. Every one was so nice and we had such fun 1 think the people I have met in Canton were infinitely superior to those whom 1 met in Manila. These young men seemed so nice and clean and line, just like the boys at home. Mr. Cadman was in the British Navy and has been shot in both legs, so that he walks with a c&ne and looks much older than his young wife, who can hardly be more than twenty, 1 should say. She is very interesting. The kind of a person who talks about things you like to talk of. Alter dinner the men came up stairs and they played the Victrola and we all talk ed. The music on the water reminded me so much of the pond -in the old days and 1 thought of all of you. After a love ly sail home in the warm darkness we landed about 1 a. m. We were also re cently invited with friends one Sunday night for a New England supper for 12. We had beans, salad, sausage, cheese, biscuits, stuffed eggs, pie, ice cream and coffee. The best things you ever tasted and we had such a good time. I like our friends here, in her letter from Yoko hama Mrs. Shaw vividly described a visit to t.he Temples of Buddha just out side the city, but said they were too highly colored, ornate and smart for the American taste. She also criticised the manner in which the sacredness of such a spot had been commercialized by allow ing tourists to be present while prayers were being offered by the natives to their gods. Foreigners were even allowed to view the inner shrine where the priest was kneeling to present the supplications of the worshippers. Mrs. Shaw used her American mind to good effect in describ ing a visit to one of the prisons near Yokohama. Mrs. Sherman also read this most un usual and entertaining letter from Mrs. Walter B. Kelley of St. Paul, Minn.: Ever since you asked me last summer to write you a letter to be read some time in March before the Alliance, I have occasionally wondered what I could think of that would be of interest. Finally a thought came to me, to write you briefly regarding a young Tahitian Princess who came suddenly to live among us, and who took a great liking to Katherine. She lived here for two years and since returning to Tahiti has written Katherine some interesting letters In the first place I am going to give you a lesson in geography, and then I am sending you the Octcber National Geographic, which contains an interest ing article on Tahiti and the city of Papeeti, where our young princess lives. In the Pacific Ocean about half waV ; from San Francisco to Australia, lies a group of islands called the Society Is lands, and of these Tahiti is perhaps the j largest. It is of coral formation and 1 noted for its wonderful sea weeds. For that reason a triend and neighbor of 1 mine, Miss Josephine Tilden, was sent I there to specialize in her chosen field of l bota ly. The University of Minnesota j sent her there to bring back specimens of j sea weeds, many of them very rare. The chief of the island, a title corresponding ; to that of sing, was extremely kind to her and her aged mother, and it was through his interest and courtesy that she was able to do much of her work. His name was Salmon, mentioned in the National Geographic that I am sending, and he had a young daughter Ina Now, among other very interesting cus toms of these Polynesian people was one' of giving, or loaning, 10 a friend for whom they entertained a feeling of high est regard, one of their children. So the chief or king insisted on loaning his lit tle daughter Ina to Miss Tilden and her mother. Chief Salmon’s grandfather was Scotch-English so some English blood flowed in his veins, and he wished his daughter Ina to learn the English language. Now Miss Tilden was over- \ whelmed, but her mother felt they could I not be unkind enough to refuse, so when they returned to St. Paul little Ina was with them. Miss Tilden says there is no liner or more royal blood in all the Poly nesian peoples than that of the Salmon family. The newspapers made much of the Princess Ina, and Katherine came home from school in a most excited frame of mind stating that Princess Ina was to attend the Murray school. Now Ina spoke French like a Parisian, and the native Tahitian, but knew no Eng lish. Fortunately for her we had a de lightful French family living here, and a young daughter about Ina’s age acted as interpreter for Ina for the first few days. Ina was about 11 years of age and spent a few days in each of the lower grades finally staying in the 6th grade. She was dark with lovely black hair and quite full red lips, but in her American clothes looked quite like an ordinary brunette child. She had been used to about 25 servants at her home, and to consider all manual work degrading, but soon adapted herself to Miss Tilden’s household. They kept no servant and of course were not used to children, so it really was very hard for them. Finally Miss Tilden felt it was too hard for her mother, who was nearly 80 years of age, to have the care of Ina, so she put her in a Catholic convent. I appeared so shocked when she told me about it, espec ially when she told me that Ina’s family were not Catholic, that she invited me to go with her when she took Ina to the convent. It was a very fine place, but my heart went out to the little girl. She came to our house frequently and loved our player piano. When she stayed to a meal her table manners were very pleas ing, and she was so appreciative of a little loving interest. Chief Salmon fully in tended to pay Miss Tilden generously for Ina’s care, but the war broke out. Tahiti passed into the hands of Germany, so he had nothing but land. Miss Tilden spent $1,000 on Ina, and kept her two years, then her father sent some relative to San Francisco to meet her, and she returned to Tahiti. Her mother died while she was here, but Ina was not told about it until she was starting home. She has written Katherine many letters some of which 1 am enclosing. She has twice spoken of sending her picture, but it has not come. We do not know whether she forgot to enclose them, or whether they were censored and kept back. During the first terrihle wave of influenza Ina’s family nearly all died, and she was se- j nously ill. The people of Tahiti were greatly depleted by this disease, nearly every family losing several members, j Ina lost her father, and brothers and sis- ; ters at this time. You will notice by i Ina’s letters to Katherine, the warm hearted, affectionate spirit of her race. | Of course her English is imperfect, but j she does wonderfully well, considering the fact that she talks French exclusively I at home. We hope to see Ina again soon and ! hope she has fulfilled the promise of her girlhood. It really gave us all a few thrills to think we had a real princess among us, and one who was so loving and generous to the people who were kind to her. I must teil you about a salad that the Tahitian people love to eat. One kind of sea weed is carefully washed and cooked, then slightly resalted, raw fish is put on it, and another kind of sea weed with a decided peppery flavor add ed last. I doubt if we would like it, but it is a great delicacy with them. 1 do hope that these rambling statements may prove of some interest, and with my most cordial greetings to all. Considering the fact that little Prin cess Ina was only a sixth grade pupil when she left St, Paul after two years’ study of English her letters are simply remarkable and her writing excellent. The following is a verbatim copy of the first letter written from Papara, Tahiti, under date of Dec. 7, 1917: 1 have re i ceived your welcome letter and also the baby’s photograph. She is a very cun ning, dear little thing; how I would like to hold her in my arms. You don’t im agine how I love babies, oh! I’m just crazy about them. 1 can see now, why you have not writ ten. I would be just as happy as you are if I had a little baby sister; its true that I have sisters and brothers, but t .ey are all big now. I I must say you are getting along very I fine with your school, for I remember when I left you was still in the first grade, and you are telling me now that you are in 6th grade, why that’s wond erful, indeed; you’re doing fine work, keep on, and will soon be in the 8th grade and then to High school. The steamer has been here since this afternoon, and you see everybody is busy writing letters to their friends, relatives' etc. I must tell you that we only hava mails once a month. I mean from far off countries like America and Europe, so you see it will take about three weeks or even a month before iny letter reaches you, anyway I hope you will get it before that time. I just heard that the boat was going to leave tomorrow afternoon, so must hurry and finish my letters, for I have a lot to write yet. Well dearie, I wish you a Merry Christ mas and a happy New Year. I will send you my photo by the next boat, and Katherine, I would love to have a picture of you, please send me one will you. Well, how is Mr. your brother getting along with his French all right, remem ber me to him. I don’t go to school any more, I have passed all my examinations so I am staying home. I’m most of time out in the country.” In all of her other letters, the latest under date of Feb. 12, ’21, she urges ber little friend to study and enter the Uui i versity. She also cordially refers to a visit from her at the island home, men tioning .their life there in a very loyal way but gives the idea she would be happier in St. Paul. At the social hour which closed the program Mrs. McDonald was assisted in serving sherbert and fancy cakes by Mrs. H. H. Carter, Mrs. Charles R. Coombs, Mrs. Arthur E. Wilson and Mrs. George R. Doak. Miss Charlotte Odiorne of Bangor re turned home Friday, af'er a few days in Belfast, the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Bradbury. Last Thursday they gave a dinner for her, when covers were laid for ten. The other guests were the girls who took part on the program at the Japanese Tea Garden. Mrs. Hattie Stevens was called to Brooklyn, N. Y., last Friday by a tele gram from Rev. Thomas B Gregory on account of the illness of Mrs. Gregory, i who is nearly prostrated by the sudden i death of their daughter, Mrs. John C. ) Weir, formerly Miss Lee Gregory. ‘ The Japanese Garden Party Drew a Record Attendance and was a Suc cess in Every Particular. The Japanese garden party held in the Armory last Wednesday under the aus pices of the Universalist League was the most delightful of their many social suc cesses. It was generally conceded that the hall never before looked so artistic as it did in its transformation of a veritable garden scene in festive array. A , erfect canopy of Japanese lanterns were strung from the balcony rails to the center chandelier, from which hung inverted a large and beautiful Japanese umbrella. Umbrellas were spaced oh the balcony, while lanterns, fans, etc., were on the lockers. In the floor center was a large pale green lawn table with beautiful linen cover and centered with a rustic basket filled with cherry blossoms. The sales tables, including those of the boys and girls, an unusual innovation, were covered in white bunting decorated with sprays of pink roses and green leaves, while at either end were small cherry trees in full bloom. Each table also had a bunch of Easter lilies. The regular drop curtain on the stage with its white center panel formed a very fme back ground for a dado of cherry trees of a lighter tint. Trees galore were used on the stage, in front of it and at its sides. The most artistic feature of this veritable garden scene was the handsome white pagoda, having its frame completely en twined with wisteria sprays. The tea table service in this was perfectly ap pointed in real Japanese style and pie sided over by Mrs. Cecil Clay in costume. Ail who served at the tables or were on the program dressed in approved Japan- I ese style. The afternoon program opened with a piano duet by Misses Verna Jeliison and Margaret Eaton. Then came the cutest, dearest parade ever thougut of when twenty or more babies in their decorated doll carriages and strollers appeared, led by little Miss Martha Bowker, herself only a baby. Chrysanthemums were used, giving a fluffy effect, and the little ones seemed like kings and queens in their attitude of monarchs of all they surveyed. A few children in costume walked in the parade and added material ly to its effectiveness. It was greatly enjoyed and a very original and happy hit, under the direction of Mrs. Ralph D. ) Southworth. Mrs. Basil R. Allen, in a most becoming Japanese gown, sang a “Maid from Japan,” and was accompa nied in the chorus by a bevy of little Jap anese maids. The boys' carpentry class brought down the house with their mo tion song,and the surprise of the program, "Ten in One,” presented by Rev. Wm. Vaughan, in an appropriate and compli mentary speech, proved to be the family of John B. Chalmers, including Mrs. Chalmers with her youngest child in arms, her married daughter and the rest ranging to the smallest. All were in cos tume and their chorus was greeted with a cordial encore. The vocal duet by Misses hires Rogers and Henriella Coombs, two attractive little Japs, was cordially received. Miss Charlotte Odi orue of Bangor, the child solo dancer, gave a Japanese number and was greeted with storms of applause. She is a gteat favorite in Belfast, where she frequently appears, always in new solo dances. In the evening the booths, with the exception of two near the front of the hall, were removed to give extra seating capacity. At least an hour before the program began every available seat was occupied, leaving only standing room for the dancers, who came later. Mrs. Al ten’s number was repeated, but this time she came in a genuine jinricksha, which Mr. Horace Chenery brought as a souve nir of a trip he took to Japan some years ago. Miss Odiorrie also repeated her suc cess of the afternoon and the boys’ car penter class brought down the house by repeating their motion song. They were Eugene Hammons, Warren Southworth, Thomas Hoxie, Alfred Bradford, John and Henry Chalmers. The duet by Miss Katherine E. Brier and Harold ri.McKeen, the former in a becoming costume, was most enjoyable and greeted witii a cordial encore, to which they responded. The Kan dance by Miss Caroline Havener of Portland was as appropriate as it was picturesque, and she was really charm ing in her dainty Japanese gown. Al ways a favorite here for her natural grace and modest manner, she won Iresh lau rels and t he comment was frequently heard that a professional would have found it difficult to surpa s her efforts. The president of the League, Mrs. Chas. Braatiury, assisted by Mrs. Cecil Clay and Mrs. V. H. Rackliff, designed the decorations, and also did effective work in their preparation. Others who hao their share in the work, besides the girls and boys were Mrs. Vannie H. Rackliife, in charge of the distributing of the apron table; Mrs. J. G. Paul and Mrs. L. T. Shales, fancy articles; Mrs. Hattie L. Morse, candy; Mrs. J. Lee Patterson, Mrs. Albra J. Clary and Mrs. Elijah Ritchie, food table; Mrs. Cecil Clay, the cooking. The program closed with gen eral dancing by McKeen’s orchestra. The net proceeds were over $252. MRS. SARAH E. NORTON. The remains of Sarah E., wife of Al bert O. Norton, arrived in Belfast Satur day from Norfolk Downs, Quiney, Mass., where she died March 24th. They were placed in the receiving tomb at Grove Cemetery and later in the spring will be | taken to White's Corner, Montville, for i interment. Mr. Norton and C. V\. Ban ton of Boston accompanied the body here and remained ovei Sunday in Liberty,the guests of Mrs. Frank Sanford They re turned to Boston Tuesday. Mrs. Norton was 68 years old and had many friends in Montville, where she had lived many ! years and was highly respected.

The stockholders of the company feel that a statement to the public in regard to the situation is fitting at this time. Section 97 of Chapter 259 of the laws of 1917 of the State of Maine, reads as follows: “Sec. 97. Exemption from Taxation. All Armories, Drill-rooms, OfTices, Head quarters offices, and Target ranges, own ed by the State or by any municipality, or by any organization of the National Guard, and all buildings and land leased by the State, or by any municipality, or by an officer or organization of the Nat ional Guard, to be used as an Armory, Drill-room, Headquarters office, Target | range, or other military purposes, shall be exempt from taxation for all purposes during the period of such ownership, lease and use." The company consulted with the city assessors in regard to the application of this law to that part of their property under lease for an Armory. The Board of Assessors consulted with the City So licitor and also got an expression of opinion from the Board of State Asses sors. This opinion in their language stated that in their belief “the intent of the statute to which you refer was to provide for the exemption of such prop erty while leased.” Influenced by these decisions and also in accordance with their own judgment the local assessors made a correction in the tax assessed, and as recorded by them “to correct an error in the original assessment.” The total tax assessed against the Hay ford Block for 1920 was $1,153.45. The amount paid the Collector $867.08. The cash discount was $37.66. The amount corrected by reason of the statutory ex emption was $248.71; this latter amount being arrived at by figuring on a rental basis the proportion of the Armory to the whole Block. Respectfully submitted, Hayford Block Co. Belfast, March 30, 1921. --I PERSONAL Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Curtis spent Sunday ! in Portland. Herman O.
