The Mathews’ Mill Banquet.
Tendered by the Proprietor, O. E. Frost.
An Unqualified Success.
One of the unusual things in business
circles was the banquet given by O. E.
F rost to his employes, their ladies and a
few personal friends in Memorial Hall
last Wednesday evening. Covers were laid
for 100 people at long tables with the ladies
of the Baptist church catering. The menu
was varied, abundant and appetizing. It
eclipsed all efforts these ladies have made
m the past when they earned the reputa
tion of being excellent cooks. Their
motive was apparent, as the host on this
occasiou has also done more than they
have ever asked of him in cburch work
and they grasped the opportunity to get
even.
McKeen’s orchestra of six pieces, with
Charles B\ Hammons soloist, furnished
music for the banquet and during the
program that followed. William K. Keene
was a fine and witty master of ceremon
ies and Rev. lieorge C. Sauer asked
grace.
Mayor C. W. Wescott. gave an excel
lent address on work and it remunera
tions. He can speak from personal ex
perience, for those who know of his daily
life realize that few men work more
faithfully and conscientiously than Mayor
Wescott. He has little regard for his
personal comforts when there is work to
be done. He verifies the saying that labor
is humanity’s greatest blessing, and in
junctions coming from such a man have
unusual weight and influence. He is an
optimist and intends to be a “peptomist”
believing that a just solution of all threat
ening conditions will finally prevail. In
closing he said: “I tell you, ladies and
gentlemen, that Belfast has good reason
to be proud of her citizenship: one and all.
they are of a high order of education and
intelligence. We have no false prophets
or fanatical leaders. Such are not want
ed; neither would they be welcomed
among us. We are all laborers in the
true sense of the word, and individuality
of effort has full sway. May it ever be
thus.”
Ben L. Davis, president of the Belfast
Chamber of Commerce, spoke as an opti
mist in regard to Belfast; drawing for
material to substantiate his theory from
the city’s growth in recent years, and in
the fact that we have never known
what may be termed as “real hard
times.” He would not be a “knockto
mist” under any condition, but would
stand up for his city and its citizens. He
also had several bright stories to clinch
his arguments, as seems to be his habit.
Rev. H. E. Dunnack, State Librarian
of Augusta, and a personal friend of the
host, gave one of his characteristic
speeches, which he prefaced by a few re
marks on the value of our public library,
and whenever possible punctuated his
discourse with thoughts on libraries and
book. Another object lesson used re
peatedly was a dream of the culinary art
—a handsome cream pie that escaped the
speakers’ table. He told stories gilore
that brought smiles, as he believes in be
ing happy, and thinks “Belfast is mignty
matter of fact.” ’Ihe serious theme of
his discourse was ‘The Base of Achieve
ment in Business and Life,” to be artis
ans, citizens and men was the worth
while work. In his sub-divisions he
spoke of ethics or how to live with one
another; political economy, or how to do
business with one another; politics, or
how to make laws for one another. It is
a duty to live with our eyes open; to
think at all times, lest one original idea
unbalance us; to do things worth doing;
to be, that is the vital Question in life.
Mr. Frost in response to his name
spoke briefly on the pleasant relations at
the mill in the past twenty years, and ex
pressed his pleasure of meeting with the
ladies who had made their home associa
tions right. He urged all to take home
with them the thoughts Mr. Dunnack
had so ably presented. He urgrd as a
pirting request that all would in the fu
ture make as good workmen in some
| cuurcn as mey had at their daily tasks.
Clarence E. Frost in behalf of tne
workmen thanked their host for the good
| things provided by the banquet and pro
gram, but said they preferred to say it
with llowers in conveying best wishes
and continued success of the business,
and presented him with an immense bou
quet of carnations. Before the host
could collect his thoughts to respond B.
L. Robertson also expressed appreciation
for the guests, and proposed three cheers
for Mr. Frost, which were led with a vim
by Mr. Dunnack.
Waldo County Crange
Waldo County grange was entertained
by Riverside grange, Belfast, April 5th.
It was a fine day and alt roads, good, bad
and indifferent, seemed to* lead to that
cosy grange home, where a warm wel
come was accorded to all. Grange open
ed in form, B. L. Aborn in the chair, all
officers present save two.
After the usual business routine the
waiting time was taken up by instru
mental music by .Bernice Armstro.i/
Seven candidates received instruction in
tne fifth degree; then came the noon hour
devoted to feasting and sociability.
Called to order at 2 o’c'ock and pro
gram taken up. Music by choir, follow
ed by very fine address of welcome by
Cora Wilson, fittingly responded to by
Ada Sanborn of Silver Harvest grange,
Waldo; vocal duet, "Feather your Nest,"
by Maud Bryant and Freeman Wentworth.
Rev. Brother Torsleff of Bangor was
then introduced and gave a very interest
ing address on Baby Welfare. He said
the baby was the most wonderful put to
gether mechanism on the farm and the
most paying domestic animal on the
farm. The Chinese pay doctors in ad
vance to come so often and look over
their family, keep them alive and in
health, and he thought in time that
would be practiced everywhere. Large
sums are paid to keep up institutions for
little ones, but there seems to be no de
crease in the death rate of those institu
tions; a leak somewhere. He told some
stories illustrating the strange methods
of some parents. At a grange supper a
young couple with a baby were seated near
him. Jokingly, he said: “I suppose baby
will have some beans.” "Oh! yes,” they
said, "baby was ond of beans.” “And
coffee, too?” he asked. "Oh, yes, baby
liked r offe : and had some every morning.”
Another time a lady had a baby with her
and told him she had three children left
at home. He asked if she had some of
the neighbors stay with them. No, she
wouldn’t bother the neighbors. She gave
them a large dose of paregoric all around
and they wouid be all right until morning.
His address was very instructive and in
teresting. Later a vote of thanks was
given him.
Next a vpcal solo by Maud Bryant, then
the topic, Is Farm Labor More Efficient
or Less Efficient Than Factory Labor?
Opened by Lester Wilson and further dis
cussed by brothers L. C. Morse, Curtis,
Paul, and others. News clippings by Cora
Wilson.
A very interesting letter was read by
the lecturer from Past Pomona Master
Charles Howes, who passed the winter in
the South. Reading bf Grace Woods,
“The Bean Supper.”
At the census 11 granges responded and
one visitor from Penobscot county.
A rising vote of thanks was given host
grange for the courtesies of the day.
The lecturer gave an interesting report
of her attendance at the Lecturers’ Con
ference at Bangor.
Closed in form.
Patrons will please take notice that the
next meeting of Pomona at Dirigo Grange,
Freedom, is not on the first Tuesday of
the month as usual, but on the second
\ Tuesday, May 10.

j Charles Merriam and family of Presque
i Isle, a former prominent resident of Mor
rill. Last Wednesday he brought the re
mains of his second daughter, Ethel, foi
interment in Belfast cemetery. Funeral
, services were held at the chapel.
] At 2 o’clock Tuesday a. m. the fire alarm
sounded and roused the community to
the fact that John Vickery’s mill was
on fire. The fire was so far advanced
that nothing could be done to save the
mill or machinery, but thanks to the
efforts of a large force of men a quanti
ty of staves and heading was moved, the
grass fire controlled and the buildings of
Mrs, Ida Ellis and Mr. George Rose, very
| near the mill were saved, although they
i caught fire several times. Mr. Vickery
has certainly suffered from fire, having
lost two mills and a store in the past 20
years? Messrs. Leonard and Woodbury
also met with quite a loss as they had put
in machinery and were sawing out spool
wood. Mr. Vickery has a new mill in
process of erection and will soon be at
work again. '

The New Belfast Fair.
The directors of :he New Belfast Fail
have secured a sensational attraction for
the coming fair.
This year’s fair will be for a period of
four days, from Tuesday, August 16th to
Friday, the 19th. Friday will be Auto
mobile Day and a < ontract has been en
tered into for a con plete program of au
tomobile races and auto polo.
The contract was closed Friday be
tween Secretary Buzzell and Walter Hem
pel, manager for Wild Bill Endicott, and
assures the presence here of at least six
professional drivers of note, all driving
specially built racing cars capable of a
speed of 100 miles per hour.
Auto polo, something entirely ns.7,
will also be on the boards on Friday of
the fair. This game is played with four
cars and four malet men, and consists in
an effort to place the ball between the
goal posts, the players riding on the run -
ing gear of the cars, and assuring plenty
of action.
There will be no extra charge for this
adoed feature, the same prices usual to
other days of the fair prevailing.
This same attraction is booked for
Bangor and the State Fair at Lewiston
and at Waterville, and as nothing is too
good for Belfast, the fair directors made
every effort to add this strong card to
the coming season, and are to be congrat
ulated in their efforts to make the com
ing Belfast Fair one of the leaders in the
State. A four days fair will make possi
ble a much stronger program of events,
