| Raymond R. Sherman met with a seri
ous accident last Sunday at Swan Lake,
: where he and his father, Elmer A. Sher
j man, were spending the day at their cot
. tage. About noon Raymond took his
1 gun to shoot crows and was only a short
distance from the cottage when he dis
covere that some fishermen from Bel
J fast had met with an accident in their
j boat and went to their assistance after
| putting his gun on the ground. When he
returned to pick up his gun he caught
his foot and fell. The trigger of the gun
1 catching on the ground it was discharg
ed and entered the fleshy part of his
j right forearm. An artery was severed
1 and he bled profusely. The young men
; he had befriended came to his assistance
and he directed what he wished them to
1 do as lirst aid, for he realized that he
was in danger. His father went to
the nearest telephone and called Dr. Eu

Dr. Tapley says it will be several weeks
before he can use the arm.

I A Birthday in Florida, a friend
| of The Journal writes from Daytona, Flo
rida, concerning a recent incident in the
| lives of Belfast people visiting in that
; City, in part, as follows: A lady of our
party, who is supposed to be old, but in
reality is not, observed her birthday here
on Saturday, March 26th,being the twen
ty-first successive birthday passed in the
j Southland. On this occasion, with good
i health and beautiful August weather and
i surroundings all about, and with visiting
friends, the day was one of genuine pleas
ure. Old neighbors from St. Augustine
came down the intervening eight miles to
j fate dinner, bringing the best of wishes,
j candy and loads of flowers. The flower
j gifts would certainly be amply sufficient
i to decorate a church for Easter. In the
J afternoon the visitors’ suggestion of a
\ ride on the ocean beach was gladly adopt
ed. So in the afternoon, with our old
friend Joe at the lever, all hands first
rode up to Ormond on the Dixie High
way, then on the great ocean beach.
The course from Ormond to Mosquito In
let is about twenty miles or more, as fine
a speedway as the world can show. Not
much chance for collisions with a road
way four hundred feet wide. The ride
along the brink of the ocean was a de
lightful one and the speed of forty or
more miles an hour hardly noticeable.
Our new neighbors and friends here were
especially kind in remembrances of cards
and flowers, but the Belfast gifts of cards
were, as always, the sure sign of loyalty
and friendship of those good people at
home. These three cities of Daytona,
Daytona Beach and Seabreeze, always
much alive, are prospering as never be-'
fore. New homes of th e bungalow type
and larger are springing up all about,
and the dry, sunny land, apparently of
no earthly use, brings fabulous prices as
home sites. TJiere are many favored
spots in Florida, but, taken altogether,
the Triple Cities, with the Halifax river
and Atlantic ocean at their doors, are un
surpassed. So we think in winter and
spring; so they think here all the jear
round.
Aurora Rebekah Lodge will hold its
regular meeting next Tuesday evening,
when supper will be served at 6 o’clock
followed by degree work.
The North Church Guild was enter
tained Monday evening by Miss Florence
M. Dunton. Flans for the summer sale
were discussed and work for its fancy
table begun under the direction of a
committee consisting of Mrs. C. B.
Holmes, Mrs. Raymond R. Sherman,
Mrs. O. B. WilKins, Mrs. C. A. Rack
liife, Mrs. G. E. Kittredge, Mrs. W. H.
and Mrs. V. L. Hall, Mrs. Frank A.
Bramhall, Mrs. Z. D. Hartshorn, Mrs.
M. L. Slugg, Mrs. John C. Pillsbury,
Miss Louise Clement will be hostess at
the next meeting.
Alfred A. Cyr of Waterville, the jun- I
ior member of Cyr Brothers, contractors
of the new bridge building in Belfast,
met with a severe accident about 3 p. m.
Tuesday at the draw of the bridge. He
was on the barge going through the draw
when he stepped on a loose pla^k and
was thrown into the river. He received
a cut several inches long on the side of
his head and also fractured his right col
lar bone. He was taken to his room at
the Wayside Tea House and Dr. Harry
L. Kilgore called. The fracture was re
duced Wednesday morning and Mr. Cyr
thinks he had a fortunate escape as well
as a severe accident. Since work closed
on the bridge he had been in Boston with
his wife and daughter Gladys, the latter
a student at the New England Conserva
tory of Music He arrived here Monday
having returned from an auto trip to At
lantic City and Washington with his
family. Wednesday he was very com
fortable, apparently feeling no ill effects
from his salt water bath.

The Easter Recital and Ball.
One of the Season’s Most Fascinating Fea
tures.
Mrs. Sumner C.Pattee is receiving con
gratulations from eyery source for the
pronounced success of the recital given
by the junior classes of her dancing
school and also for the enjoyable ball that
followed in the Armory on March 30th.
The teacher’s personal grace and mod
est manners are genuine object lessons to
her pupiis, who adore her and very natur
ally desire to imitate her every character
istic. To the adult members present last
Wednesday evening her ability as a first
class teacher was most apparent, espec
ially in the solo dances of little children,
who have never had the experience of
appearing before an audience. With one
exception, the special numbers on the
program were original with the teacher.
The costumes were most appropriate,
indicating that the parents of the pupils
were also interested in the success of the
function and the opportunity of assisting
in its scenic effect. The two class num
bers Ace of Diamonds (Danish Folk
dance) and the closing march were most
pleasing.
A very pretty feature was the courte
ous attention paid the matrons, Mrs. Carl
H. Stevens, Mrs. William M Randall and
Mrs. Morris L. Slugg, who in full and
very becoming evening gowns, were ush
ered to the seats of honor by little lads
from four years up, Richard Sherman,
George Rogers, Thomas Parker, Henry
Ingersoll and John Stevens. Then the
dainty little flower girls appealing with
arm bouquets of snap dragons were Jane
Mudgett, Eva Mayo, Caroline Dolloff and
Arline Parker. After the march the en
tire class by couples courtesied to their
matrons.
Eugene, the little son of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles F. Hammons, comes naturally by
his ability to sing and dance and was
greeted with a very insistent encore as
hesang'Tm a Lonesome Little Raindrop”
from the Village Follies. The little girls
assisting him in the chorus were Elena
Shute, Doris Collins, Emily Raeklilfe,
Alice Banks and Fern Linnekin in storm
garments with bright umbrellas.
In the group folk dances by the class
the ball room decorum of even the small
est children surpassed that generally seen
from the spectators’ seats of many pub
lic alfairs.
borne ot the misses of the class, Eunice
Ames, Doris Wilson, Katrina Kelley,
Laura Beady, Virgie McDonald and Doro
thy Whitcomb as Highland lasses, did
the Scotch dance with ctediL to them
selves and to their teacher. Their cos
tumes were becoming and they were in
the spirit of the dance.
The Nature Dance, one of Mrs. Pat
tee’s best compositions, was done by Hil- !
degard, the little daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Levi L. Rogers, with a grace that
was appreciated by the public, who saw
her for the first time All unconscious
of the pretty picture she made in her
dainty and fluffy tulle lavender gown,
bare legs and feet she did the intricate
steps like a maid from Fairyland. Tile
encore was done with the same modest
and unassuming spirit that holds the at
tention of all.
Miss Oretchen, the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Edward H. Fletcher, wore a very
becoming ballet costume of pale green
tulle with hair bands of the same tone.
She is one of the older pupils of the class
and has appeared frequently in public in
solo work, but on this occasion did the
graceful and artistic Valse Impromptu in
a manner that called for only the most
favorable comment. She was also cor
dially encored.
Emily Rackliffe and Fern Limiekin, the
former in white and the latter in blue,
■.wearii g gownsof a century past, appeared
demure and stately in the slow but pret
ty dance of the Old Fashioned Maids.
Its direct contrast of all modern ideas
was a pleasing innovation. They re
sponded very sedately to their encore
repeating a few measures of the dance.
Miss Helen, the little daughter of Mr.
! and Mrs. Harry A. Foster, in an extreme
ly becoming gown of pale pink tulle with
shoulder garniture of pale roses reaching
to the waist and also a few of them hold
ing her pretty hair in place, danced the
i difficult and attractive solo, Columbine,
; like a princess of the art. She even ex
| ceeded her success in the Mignon so well
| presented at their Christmas dance.
Then floated upon the floor a bunch of
roses, as sweet and attractive as if fresh
| from the summer garden, Gretcheu
I Fletcher, Jane Tarabain, Dorothy Cham
j berlain, Doris Collins, Clarissa Harriman
I and Elena Shute. They danced very
creditably the new group measure—Les
Bouquetieres, and gracetuilv responded.
The anonymous number, Pierrette and
Pierrot, the boy and girl, the former in a
blgck and yellow domino land, thej latter
in a black evening gown, furnished one of
the most favorite attractions. In spite
of the mask Miss Clara Hammons was
readily recognized, but it was not until
the last march that the identity of Miss
Alice E. Southworth as a very graceful
boy became fully known.
It remained for Jane, the baby daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Benj H. Mudgett,
and Henry G., a three and one-half
years old young man, the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Henry G Ingersoll, to star the pro
gram and retire with its laurels, little
dreaming ihat they had danced them
selves into the hearts of thedarge crowd
present. It mattered little if they took
their cues a trifle late from their elders,
they were wonder.any sweet.
Inhere were guests present from Sears
port, Camden and Rockland. It is evi
f h ey appreciated the program as
Mrs. Pattee has been requested to repeat
it later in Searsport and Camden.
A general dance closed the pleasant
evening, with a crowd participating.
Mrs. Lloyd D. McReen was the accom
panist for the recital and McKeen’s or
chestra of seven pieces, with Charles F.
Hammons as vocal soloist, turnished the
best of music for the ball. t
