DON ROBBINS INDIGNANT.
Don Robbing Belfast’s liitle man, t^s
been bristling with indignation because
he had been asked to act as groomsman
in a midget wedding is Manchester, N. H.
In speaking with his closest friend, City
Marshal M. R. Knowlton, he said: “I will
play second fiddle to no man.” This was
of course only on the side as Don has
sent a polite note to the little bride-to-be
saying that his many business engage
ments prevent his acceptance of the
pleasure she offers. The letter Don re
cently received reads in part:
Please do not think 1 am rude in writ
ing to you. You seel am a little Midget, '
about your height, but not of the male ;
sex. I am a female. I shall introduce !
myself as Miss Alice M. Lang, soon Mrs. i
Bourassa. I saw your picture in a Bos
ton paper about a year ago with a story
of your life. You may say it’s queer she
had my picture so long, but you see being
little, I love to see little ones like myself,
and have quite a collection of little folks.
You are wonderful to be able to reach
the pool table for my iiance, four feet
three inches, finds it very difficult to play
pool. It must be great living with the
chief of police. Perhaps your chief knows
ours, Chief Michael Healy, for he h .s
been chief a good many years,perhaps 25.
He has a son, Captain Charles. He is a
great man.
As you are the smallest man in Maine
and I am the smallest lady in Manches
ter and my fiance the smallest man in
Nashua. He has been on the stage, work
ed during the war in the cartridge plant
in Lowell and at present is a cigarmaker,
making cigars for the largest selling
brand in the world, the 7 24-4, R. G. Sul
livan Estate. He is 29 years old and I
am 22.
The reason why I wrote to you, it is
this, I’m to be married either the last
week of May or the second week in June
of 1921, and would like to know if I could
call upon you to be best man. Would you
favor me by your presence. I am a Cath
olic. As for a bridesmaid, I think there
is a little lady about four inches taller than
I and if lean get her I shall be glad, if not
I shall try somewhere else.
Trusting I shall hear from you soon, I
remain,
Respectfully yours,
Alice M. Lang, i

Civil Cases
The case of Jesse L. Staples vs. Wm.
H. Arnold, Belfast parties, was an action
to recover on the sale of a Ford car. It
was the first case to be opened to the jury
this term on Thursday. The jury return
ed a verd.ict at 4.15 p. m. for the plaintiff
with damages assessed at $152.
The case of Helen Curtis of Searsport
vs. George Peavey of Monroe was brought
to recover for the care and medicine the
plaintiff had provided for the defendant’s
wife, her daughter The evidence intro
duced indicated a family estrangement as
the real reason of the suit, as the plaintiff
admitted |she cared for her daughter on
her own accord, but later decided to col
lect. Judge Wilson or lered the case
withdrawn from the jury and the non
suit of plaintiff was entered on tbe docket.
Friday the case of Fred T. Parker vs.
Charles F. Drake, Frankfort parties and
brothers-in-law, occupied the court in a
case to recover $82 20 which was said to
be due the plaintiff for wood delivered
about two years ago. The case was heard
before the se ond jury composed of 11
men by agreement. The verdict was for
the plaintiff in the total amount sued for,
$87.20.
inuniais v^anun ui uoiuui
Thomas Shaw of Belfast received their
naturalization papers last Thursday. Both
were British subjects; the former coming
from Liverpool and the latter from Fal
mouth, England.
The case of Alvin F. Mitchell vs. Al
vina, widow of the late Charles H.
Mitchell of Monroe, occupied the Court
all day Saturday and up to 4.15 .Monday.
Robert F. Dunton and Arthur Ritchie ap
peared for the plaintiff, with Buzzell &
Thornton for the defendant. The action
was on a writ of entry to land in Monroe.
The plaintiff claimed that he had been de
frauded out of his share, a quarter inter
est in the estimated $12,000 estate ot his
late brother, Charles H. Mitchell; that
the defendant had taken advantage of
the impaired mental condition of the
plaintiff in persuading him to release his
claim on said estate, estimated at about
$3,000 for a deed of his farm on which he
owed his late brother $300 on a total
value of about $600. There was a large
array of witnesses including Sheriff Lit
tlefield and the opposing attorneys, Ritch
ie and Buzzell. Judge Wilson’s charge
was very fair, clear and comprehensive
as he had laid special stress on the ques
tions, were the papers in the transaction
delivered, was fraud or imposition prac
ticed on the plaintiff, and was he not of
sufficient mental capacity to transact
business? These questions must be an
swered in the affirmative to entitle him
to recover his share of the estate. The
jury took the charge at 4.15 and at 12 re
turned a verdict for the plaintiff. There
was a large attendance as the case in

The case of Lute F. Rogers of Troy vs. ,
John W. Hobbs of Brooks was to recover
on an apple deal and was decided in favor
of the plaintiff for $165.
The jury returned a verdict in favor of |
Edwin H. Rose vs. Percy Cilley, Brooks!
parties, in an action of replevin. The
former, about five years ago exchanged a
Hoover potato digger with the latter for
a Rice digger. Cilley claimed that the
deal was a genuine trade and refused to
make the change, hence the suit.
The criminal cases were called Wednes
day afternoon before a picked jury. It is
probable that court will be adjourned
Thursday afternoon.
Proclamation by the Governor
ARBOR DAY
Arbor Day has a special significance
for the State of Maine. Over fifteen
million acres of all the land in the State
out of the total of nineteen million acres
are covered with trees. These vast areas
on A were the property of our people.
This great inheritance was squandered
by our forefathers and Maine today owns
but a few thousand acres of forest from
which most of the timber has been sold.
The people of Maine, its men, women
and children, should take an interest in
trees, and should study and plant them.
Trees are blessings, beautiful to look
upon and useful to man, to birds and to
beasts. May the day come when for both
sentimental and practical reasons every
city, town and village shall line its streets
with shade trees, shall buy land for re
forestation and shall own public wood
lots.
Our State of Maine once again should
begin to acquire land for reforestation
that future generations may be supplied
with timber, and that Maine may con
tinue to be known the world over as the
Pine Tree State.
Now therefore, I, Percival P. Baxter,
Governor of Maine, do hereby proclaim
Saturday, May 14th, Arbor Day
in the State of Maine,
and I urge our citizens to observe the day
both at home and in the schools with fit
1 ting exercises. The planting of a tree is
a public service, for it benefits not only
those who plant it but also those who
pass it by.
Given at the Office of the Governor
at Augusta, and sealed with the
Great Seal of the State of Maine,
this Twenty-third Day of April, in
the year of our Lord One Thousand
Nine Hundred Twenty-one, and of
the Government of the State of
Maine the One Hundred and First.

Attest: Governor of Maine

Are You a Mason?
This Bright Comedy by Local Talent a
Pronounced Success, Socially
, and Financially.
Packed houses greeted the production
at the Colonial April 26th of the Frank
D. Hazeltine Post benefit, Are You a
Mason? under the personal direction and
coaching of James W. Flanders, a pro
fessional actor of merit, but now with
Leonard, Stevens & Bearce Co. The
Legion requests the Journal to thank Mr.
Flanders and all members of the cast,
Manager Clifford and the public, for th.ir
co-operation and interest.
There was not a dull moment from the
time the curtain came up after the fine
concert by McKeen’s orchestra, until it
went down at the close of the fourth act.
Mr. Flanders more than fulfilled what
had been claimed for him and only the
highest praise is heard on every hand.
The plot of the play is conglomerate
with intrigue, fun, blunders and wit. It
kept the audience guessing as to what
was coming next and the way out. The
thread of thought clustered around Frank
Perry—Mr. Flanders—a New York so
ciety sport, his private life at home and
out of it. Not for a second diet ^he drop
the part or fail to keep the lead of all in
the cast. His facial expressions of fear,
hate, ete., were apparently real with the
boys, when caught.unawares by his wife
and when dealing out fraud to his father
and mother-in-law, and the genuine re
lief look when all ended well. He will
always be a favorite in Belfast.
Miss Katherine E. Brier, as Perry’s
wife only added another laurel leaf to her
many public successes. She was equal
to every occasion without the slightest
knowledge of what was coming next.
She was fine in the fiery spirit in resent
ing the deceit of her better half and also
in standing up for her mother.
Mrs. Sumner C. Pattee as the mother
in-law, looked after her husband, and all
the rest of the family with a skill that was
equal to a professional and caused many
to say that she always does well what
ever she undertakes. Her gowns were
also very becoming,
Harold Ladd played opposite Mrs. Pat
tee, as a husband able to boast that he
had cheated his wife for twenty years,
but carried to the end with fine spirit
j many sudden surprises. His voice is ex
i ceptionally good.
Kalpn Clifford made his fust appear
ance in public, but became at once a
favorite. He was good from first to last
and had one of the most difficult parts to
support. As a girl he was bright, as a
young sport clever and as a friend loyal
to a reality.
Harold Stone and J. Earle Braley were
in minor parts, but supported Flanders
especially well when not looking after
the ladies in the cast—their chief con
cerns. Stone was good in love making
and Braley in theatricals.
Misses Alice Wardwell and Hazel
Heald, two young sisters of Mrs. Perry,
were supposed to be proficient in romance
and concerned mostly in looking pretty.
T. hey were good at the former and only
natural in the latter.
Elizabeth Doak as a French maid and
Doris Clifford as an Irish cook in the
Perry home, were equal to ail those try
ing parts required and actually seemed
the real articles.
Albert Miller, a policeman, had suffi
! cient dignity to be awe-inspiring to the
iadies of the Perry home as he summoned
! the man of the house to the court.
Iheodore Bramhall, a retired farmer in
New York on a visit, was a star. His
! disguise was complete with the exception
of that happy smile Ted always carries,
and on all sides were remarks in under
tones, “he is fine,” “who would know
him.” These were too mild; he was ex
cellent and able to carry out the spirit of
his part as well as the text.
Miss Elizabeth Clements, his wife,’was
m actual disguise and supported the'part
which required real acting, in a moat
commends Die manner.
The Post entertained the cast at an ex
cellent dinner at the Windsor Hotel Sun
day with Commander Ralph A. Bramhall
master of ceremonies. Covers were laid
*°r sixteen including Mrs. Flanders and
Mrs. Ladd. All were given a lunch at
the Dutch parlor restaurant after the
play Tuesday night It is hoped the net
proceeds may be near $300.
Daylight Saving.
Daylight-saving originated in Germany
as a war measure. It was later adopted
in this country by Congressional action,
tried and found wanting. Its effects were
so injurious to farmers that the food sup
ply of the country was curtailed many
times the value of the products grown in
the war gardens.
The extra hour was spent by the
younger workers, at least, in devising
short methods of wasting the abnormal
wages they were receiving. After the
daylight law was repealed by Congress, a
few city people in New England, headed
by the Boston Chamber of Commerce,
have made a determined effort to inflict
the nefarious schr me upon the people of
the eastern States. Outside of profes
sional and business men and the idle rich,
who wish longer afternoons for motoring
and golf playing, daylight saving benefits',
no one in this latitude.
It is of vast damage to the farmers and
a menace to the health of children, who
are forced to arise at an unseemly hour
to catch the school team. The whirl ami
rush of American life will all too soon
wreck their nervous systems, if they be
spared the loss of childhood sleep, which
is imposed by daylight saving. I fail tc
see any benefits that daylight saving
confers upon working people. A man
who has labored hard for nine hours will
find ample time after 5 o’clock p m. to
do all the garden work he needs to do, or
feels like doing. If business houses and
manufacturing plants wish to begin the
day’s work at six o’clock a. m. it is their
privilege to do so. But when they seek
to force every one else to hegin at the
same time by setting the clock ahead they
are proceeding contrary to the law of the
land and the rights of American citizens.
Leave the clock alone!
