Belfast friends received the sad news
Thursday of the death of Blanche Jordan,
wife of B. F. Wells, Jr., a former Belfast
man. She had many friends who extend
sympathy to the bereaved. The Port
land Sunday Telegram says:
“The death of Mrs. Blanche Jordan
Wells, wife of B. F. Wells, Jr., of Au
burn, occurred at her home at the Lenox
Apartments, shortly after noon Thurs
day April 28th. Death was due to tu
bercular mengitis, an attack of which
she suffered about two weeks ago.
Mrs. Wells sickness had been different
from any previously treated by any of the
11 physicians who have tried to diagnose
her case, She had been in perfect health
until last summer, when symptoms of
poisoningwere noticed during the summer,
but the cause could not be found Later,’
it grew worse and developed into rheu
matism, which continued until she suf
fered an attack of tubercular mengitis,
resulting in her death.
Mrs. Wells was born at Cape Elizabeth,
Nov. 24, 1886, the-daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Alvah Jordan. She was only two
years old when her parents moved to Au
burn, since which time she had lived iu
that city, where she graduated from the
Edward Little High school iu the class of
Alter Her graduation sue was employed
as stenographer by the Darling Automo
bile Co , and later by the Wells Sporting
Goods Co., her husband’s business, of
which company she had always been sec
retary since its incorporation 10 years
Mrs. Wells was married to Mr. Wells
December 25, 1909, and their married life
had been most happy and ideal. She was
a woman of pleasing personality, rare
business ability and had always been of
great assistance to her husband in his
business. While in school, Mrs. Wells
was a member of tne Nahant club, and
later of the Fiest club. She was also a
member of the Thalian club of the High
street Congregational church. She died
as she lived—a faithful, modest woman,
an affectionate wife, a kind neighbor and
a friendly friend, and her sudden death
comes as a great shock to her family and
wide circle of acquaintances. Mrs. Wells
was well and favorably known in Port
land on account of her many visits to
relatives and friends.
Besides her husband and parents, she
leaves two half-brothers, Howard C. Jor
d m of Auburn and Sewall Jordan of Cape
Elizabeth, two aunts, Mrs John Potts of
Grant street, Portland, Mrs. Parker Er
skine of Galvin street, East Deeriug, and
two uncles, Walter Maxwell of Cape
Elizabeth and Mr. Arthur Jordan of Riv
erton District.
The funeral was held Sunday after
noon at 2 o’clock at her late home. Rev.
Milo E. Pearson officiated and Mrs. Eva
Spear sang, “Saved by Grace.’’ The
home was filled with relatives, friends
and members of the clubs of which she
was a member. The casket was banked
with such a profusion of flowers that it
required two trucks to convey them to
Mt. Auburn. Automobiles supplied by
the V. S. Darling Co., carried many of
those present lo the yard. The bearers
were George C. Webber, Edward N.
fowles, J. B. Swett and John B. Nadeau.
Among the Masons attending the

Admiral Burd, Mrs. Burd and their
daughter, Mrs. Ethel B. Luck, plan to
spend the summer in Belfast and North
port. A recent issue of the Boston Herald
“Rear Admiral George E. Burd, for the
last 10 years industrial manager of the
Brooklyn navy yard, was officially re
tired from active service April 28th, when
he reached his 64th nirlhday. Belore his
assignment to Brooklyn, he was attached
for three years to the Boston navy yard
and has a wide acquaintance in this city.
He gained distinction during the war by
planning the repair of the interned Ger
man liners damaged by their crews before
their seizure by the government. In spite
of the dissenting opinion of prominent
naval authorities, he insisted Fiat these
steamships could be repaired by an elec
tric welding prnces-. By applying this
idea, he got the vessels in shape to trans
port American troops a year in advance
of the time it was calculated they would
be ready. During the war 950 vessels of
all classes were sent to his district for ]
overhauling. Admiral Burd was born in '
Belfast, Me., and was graduated from the I
United States Naval Academy in 1878. |
During his course at Annapolis he spec- j
lalized in steam engineering. His wife |
was a Boston girl, Miss Frances A. Good- i
win. He was stationed in Boston from I
1907 to 1910 and served at practically all I
of the navy yards in the country during
his long period of service. He plans to
make his home on the Pacific coast, prob
ably in Seattle.”
Mr. and Mrs. Emery O. Pendleton re- |
turned home Thursday from St. Cloud,
Fla., where they spent the winter. They
are very enthusiastic about the climate
the flowers, the people and the opportun
ities offered for the winter season, partic
ularly to the Grand Army and their allied
bodies. Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Russ
who have been at St. Cloud the past
winter, will return home as soon as they
j can secure transportation.

The following letter was received:
Belfast, Maine, May 2, 1921.
1 hereby hand you my resignation as
minister of the First Parish of Belfast, !
to take effect August first, this year. ;
I give you this three months’ notice so
that you may know my intentions and
act upon them at the annual meeting of
the parish.
On August first I shall have served
six and a half years, a time full of in
teresting experiences and many pleasant
memories and always with only the
friendliest relations between parish and
minister. It is not easy to sever such
relations with the parish and the com
munity, yei I feel that it should be done.
With all best wishes for the welfare of
the First Parish and with kindliest re
gards toward ail of its members, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Arthur E. Wilson
After reading the letter a committee
consisting of Mr. James H. Howes, Mrs.
James C. Durham and Miss Charlotte W.
Colburn was appointed to confer with
Mr. Wilson and ask him to reconsider
and remain as pastor of the First Parish
church. While appreciating the good ,
feeling that prompted the endeavor Mr.
Wilson very courteously declined to re- :
His pastorate here will close August
lirst and liiB new pastorate at the Third
Religious church of Dorchester, Mass.*
will begin September 1st.
Mr. and Mrs. Wilson will leave Belfast
with the love and esteem of many out
side their own church circle and will take
with them the best wishes of all. Both
have had a part in the city’s public life
since coming here. Mrs. Wilson has es
pecially endeared herself to the children ;
and young people. Mr. Wilson has been
for some time known as “Belfast’s Bird
Man” and more recently lias been called
to larger cities for lectures. The Worces
ter, Mass., Telegram of April 23rd in part
i says of his visit:
i Listeners at the lecture of the Bird Fes
| tival yesteruay afternoon and evening at
| Tie North High school could have shut
| their eyes and believed they were far out
in the country. V- hen Arthur E. Wilson,
whistler, gave imitations of various bird
songs and calls one was tempted to think
r.ne oiras were concealed on me piauorm.
(The meadow lark, the red winged black
bird, the flicker, the song sparrow, the
gold finch, the chewink followed in quick
succession. The robin and the bluebird,
the chickadee and white throated sparrow
were among the most friendly. Mr. Wil
son spoke of the sand piper{ as the rag
time walker among birds, because of its
queer patter along the sands. Its call he
suggested, might be translated as “wet
feet, wet feet.”
In the afternoon the enthusiasm of the
children over the bird calls knew no
bounds, and during the moving picture
most of the small boys in the hall had al
ready begun to practice.
The San Jose, Calif., Mercury Herald
of April 24th, gives the following notice
of Helen Oaks Angier, daughter of Fred
W. Angier, a former Belfast boy:
“The friends of Miss Helen Oaks An
gier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs- F. W.
Angier, are rejoicing with her over the
wonderful journey she is about to enjoy.
On Thursday morning Miss Angier de
parted from her San Jose home for the
east, stopping en route at Denver and
Boston, where she will be the house guest
of relatives, and then on to New York,
from where she will sail on The Emperor
of India on June 25 for a tour of the
world. Her charming companion upon
the trip will be Mrs. Allen Danforth of
Boston, a close personal friend. The
North Cape cruise will be enjoyed at the
beginning of the voyage, which will take
them to Iceland, Newfoundland, Norway,
Holland, Belgium, and then to England
and Scotland. From England the plans
are rather indefinite, but it is hoped that
passports can be secured and their de
lightful experiences continued in a com
plete tour of the world, with special time
spent in India and Java.
^ very joveiy anair or weunesuay
afternoon was a bridge tea presided over
by Mrs. Albert Dutton and compliment
ing Miss Helen Angier, who departed on
Thursday for a tour of t.ie world. Quan
tities of gorgeous roses graced the recep
tion rooms and before the guests departed
each presented a pretty handkerchief to
the honored guest.” 9
Mrs. Annie_.M. Simmons arrived Fri
day on her way to her home in Morrill.
Mrs. Simmons spent the winter with her
five sons and two daughters in Massa

been employed as an expert chemist by a
syndicate of manufacturers.3

Mr Charles Seeley came near meeting
a tragic death last Thursday afternoon by
| being gassed in a most unusual way. He
| went to the home of Mr. George Seekins
for some apple pomace. Mr. Seekins
went to the barn across the road and his
j young son was watching Mr. Seeley who
shoveled into the pomace and the boy
1 says he leanea on his shovel, looked up
j and then fell forward burying his face
i in it. He ran for his father who came
! at once to his assistance and notified Mr,
i Seeley’s father, who came with Mr.
I Spearing. Mr. Seeley was taken home
I and Dr. F. C. Small, who fortunately
happened to be near, was summoned and
I it was an hour before he became con
scious. Mr. Seeley at this writing is ap
j parentiy all right and says he remembers
nothing after shoveling into the pomace,
j which Mr. Seekins savs had been there
nearly two years and the fumes were so
i strong as to make your eyes smart if you
got very near. In a few minutes Mr.
Seekins would have been away and Mr
Seeley would have been beyond medical
; help. •
