ALVIN H. ELLIS
Alvin H. Ellis died May 6th at his home
in San Diego, Calif., but relatives have
received no particulars concerning it. Mr. 1
Ellis was born in Monroe, March 18, 1844.
After attending the public schools of his
home town he later graduated from the ;
Poughkeepsie, N. Y. Business College, j
While serving an enlistment during the
Civil War in Company B of the 19th
Maine Infantry he was severely wounded
July 3, 1863, at Gettysburg, and never
fully recovered from the effects of that
injury. In 1865 he married Fannie Pea
vey, who died in Swanville, Sept 23,
1893. Two daughters were born from
this union—Minnie who died Nov. 11,
1905, and Lillie, wife of Lewis F. Mardeu
of Pittsfield. The greater part of his life
was spent in Swanville, where he served
many years as clerk and selectman. For
a few years he lived in Belfast, where he
was a rural mail carrier until his eyesight
failed. While here he became a member
of Phoenix Lodge, F. & A. M., and held
that membership at the time of his death.
Later he went to San Diego, wl ere Oct.
28, 1916, he married Mrs. Dora Dutton,
who survives him. Besides his daughter
and wife one brother, E W. Ellis, and
one sister, Mrs. Sarah E. Peavey, both of
Chelmsford, Mass., survive. His remains
arrived here Monday and the funeral was
held at the Swanville churc h in th
afternoon under the auspices of Phoe
nix Lodge with Rev. William Vaughan
of Belfast officiating. The floral of
ferings were beautiful. The bearers
were from Phoenix Lodge, Messrs
Norman A. Read, Raymond B. Dyer,
Ralph D. Southworth and Morris L.
Slugg. The interment was in the family
lot in Swanville. His widow was unable
to accompany the remains here, but her
niece, Miss Carrie Dutton of Brattleboro,
Vt., was returning home from a visit in
San Diego and left with them on the
Grand Trunk line en route to Portland.
In Chicago she became insane. Without
the loss of a train the officials of the
Grand Trunk provided her with a care
taker to Portland and notified her rela
tives. Mr. Marden went to Portland Sat
urday on the receipt of the news of Miss
Dutton’s illness. There he was met by
the superintendent of the Grand Trunk,
who extended every favor possible to
him even to engaging hotel accommoda
tions at Yarmouth Junction. They were
equally courteous to Miss Dutton’s rela
tives, who met her. Mr. and Mrs. Mar
den, Mr. Ellis, Mrs. Peavey and her
niece, Mrs. George W. Day of Chelms
ford returned to their respective homes
Tuesday, after.coming to attend the fu
neral.
GEORGE T. SMALL
George T. Small dropped dead early
Friday afternoon while about his work as
usual at the yard of the Pejepscot Pulp &
Paper Co. He was not married and lived
alone on Water street near the railroad
depot. His early life was spent in Isles
boro, where he was born 64 years ago,
the son of Joel and Sarah (Harvey)
Small. One brother, Thomas Small of
this city, survives. Funeral services were
held at the chapel in Grove Cemetery
Tuesday afternoon, Rev. George C. Sauer

Rev. Thomas B. Gregory of Brooklyn,
N. Y., occupied the pulpit of the Univer
salist church last Sunday after an absence
of about 35 years. He came here in 1883
from Portland, Michigan, and resigned in
November, 1885, going to Biddeford, Me.
He preached for a time in Chicago, but
for several years he has resided in Brook
lyn devoting most of his time to literary
work for newspapers and magazines. He
also lectures frequently and on a recent
occasion was introduced as ‘ a man with
a million of friends.” His audience Sun
day morning was one of the largest to
convene in that church in recent years,
including a few of his former parishioners
and many of his personal friends of for
mer years. He took for his text,“Watch
man, tell us of the night.” Speaking
without notes he is eloquent, fearless in
expression, has an unusual amount of
ready wit, and without the least hesi
tancy hits the point with an apt illustra
tion. He asserted that “it is still night”
but recounted the progress made in many
ways since he last spoke to a Belfast
audience. He is an exponent of free
thought and gives every church and de
nomination credit for the good they ac
complish.

MRS. JULIA MEADER
The sudden death of Mrs. Julia B.
Meader at hei home, 8 Goff street,
Auburn, at 9:25, Friday morning, came
as a great surprise to her family and
friends. Altho she has been ill more or
less for the past three years, no one mis
trusted that the end was so near. Three
of her children were near by at the time
of her passing away and were summoned :
by telephone, but she was dead before
they could reach the house.
Mrs. Meader was born in the town of
Belmont, 58 years ago, and was the
daughter of Simon and Jane Jackson
Black, of an old and respected family of ■
that town. She remained under the
family roof until her marriage with i
William Oscar Meader of Belmont. Four j
children resulted from the union—Charles (
M. Meader, of Gardiner, Harriett A.,
William A. and George T. Meader, all of
Auburn.
Sixteen years ago the family came to
‘ Auburn and that city has since been
i their home. Mr. Meader has for a few
years been in the employ of the Huston
factory, while the children have been
connected with the different shoe shops;
and all stand high as citizens.
Mrs. Meader was a member of the
Court street Baptist church and one of
its greatest workers. Only yesterday
she entertained the cht rch sewing circle,
of which she was an active member, and
it was noticed that she looked ill; but no
one mistrusted the seriousness of her.
condition. This morning she arose and
seemed as well as usual until a few mo
ments before her death. Her son,
George, was with her at the time. Sud
denly he noticed a change in her appear
ance and even before he could summon
help she had passed away. The only
premonition of her death was a severe
pain in her elbow and side, Wednesday.
A physician was called and nothing seri
ous was discovered, as it was thought to
be a case of neuritis, from which she was
expected to recover.
Mrs. Meader was a woman of line in
telligence and character. Outside of her
church and the EfTie J. Preble Sunday
school and circle, she was a member of
but one organization, Auburn grange.
Although not as active in that society as
in her church work, she was always
ready to answer any call of duty'. Her
impulses were very generous, and she
was especially devoted to her family.
No better or kinder mother ever lived
than Mrs. Meader. She was ever ready
j to make any sacrifice for her family and
those whom she loved, and never turned
the needy unanswered from her, door.
Her |work among the suffering and the
poor was never ended. She was contin
ually searching for cases where she
could do some good. There has been
more than one moist eye today among
those who have received her benefac
tions.
In addition to her husband and children
Mrs. Meader leaves two sisters and one
brother. They are Mrs. C. S. Webber of
Belfast, Mrs. George Jackson of North
port, and Martin G. Black of Union. She
also leaves two grandchildren, Lawrence
Meader of Lewiston and Dorothy H. Mead
er of Gardiner. Several nieces and neph
; ews are also left to mourn the loss of one
who was indulgent and kind.
The death of this good woman came as
gently as she had lived. She simply fell !
asleep. Apparently t iere was no pain or
i indication of the grim messenger, save
the general weakening from a lingering
j disease. She had lived a life devoted to ;
others and one that has been a model for
others to^follow. The remains will be j
taken to Belfast for burial, as this has ;
always been her request.—Lewiston Jour
nal.
Mrs. Charles Dana Gibson has been at
j her summer home on Seven Hundred
Acre island the past week making ar
rangements for its opening later in the
season.
Mr. and Mrs. George G. Hall have
arrived from Pasadena, Calif., and are
at their summer home at Lincolnvil e

Herbert L. Gray, on the Belmont road.
She was born in Penobscot July 4, 1839,
the daughter of Ezra P. and Abbie (Her
rick) Gray, but for about 68 years had
lived in this vicinity. She had been ill
for several years with a complication,
but death resulted from Bright’s disease.
One brother, Herbert L. Gray of this

of Los Angeles, Calif., and Mrs. Lettie
Taber of Boston, survive. In former
years she was a member of Farmer’s
Pride Grange and took an active part in
the literary work. In time ot the war

and gracious, endearing her to people of
all ages. The funeral was held at her
late home Friday, Rev. William Vaughan
officiating. The floral offerings were un
usually beautiful. Mrs. Della Frisbee

The children of the Peirce school made
a very successful drive for clothing for
the Red Cross, which are to be sent to
needy children of Europe. The other
! schools will have drives a little later and
| it is hoped that they will be equally suc
! cessful. This is a good opportunity to
teach children of the conditions abroad
I and their chance to help the children of
| Europe.
200 Boys Expected

THE WALDO COUNTY BOYS* CON
VENTION JUNE 3, 4 AND 5.
This is an opportunity for the people
of Belfast to co-operate with tile towns

tunity for Belfast to show its co-opera
tive spirit in furthering the interests of
these boys and of the whole county.
Shall we shut ourselves up in a clam
shell and ignore the rest of the world, or
be public-spirited, broad guaged and
broad-minded, and do these things whicli
will help to push Belfast and the whole
County, not fearing a little extra effort
when it works to the good of all, our
selves individually included?
These boys will need lodging on Friday
night, breakfast and dinner on Saturday*
lodging Saturday night, breakfast and
dinner on Sunday.

We wish to have the boys both lodged
and fed, but if you cannot feed them,
lodging will help. Wil everyone who
will take some of thest boys report at
once to any member of the above Com
mittee? It is necessary that we have
these arrangements ma le immediately.
