At the cemetery the regular exercises
were held at the G. A R. lot by their
Rost officers and also at the Legion lot by
their officers with regulation salutes at
each. The floral displays in each section
of the cemetery were unusually fine, con
sisting both of cultivated and wild flow
ers. For this season of the year there is
an abundance or the latter. The increa
ing number of flags and markers scatter
ed throughout the cemetery and also the
white crosses of the Legion are silent yet
impressive reminders of courage and sac
rifices.
On account of a misunderstanding of
the G. A. R. Post officers the regular hall
exercises were omitt d.
The absence of sport and the quiet dig

effect.

Annual Meeting of the Lincoln
United Baptist Association,
fT{jf ®apt'8t and Free Baptist churches
• and Kn°X counties associated
together in a union called Lincoln Asso
ciation met last Wednesday for an all
day conference with the First Baptist
anrtrC\°f Belfa8t The da* waa 'deal
nd auto parties came from many sec
1°£ tbe counties. There are 34
churches in the Association, and these
were represented by 68 delegates and
numerous visitors. Interesting and bope
ch..rohterS Wjre read fr0m m°st of the
churches—indicating that good work was
being done and much accomplished. In
some cases the note of discouragement
was present, because the church was
pastorless and the interest was waning
in the changes going on'in the commu
?‘ty* , many ^he communities
the churches were active and hopeful
and looking forward to greater accom
plishment. Revival interest was reported
{.^“t8 number o£ Sections and baptisms
had been numerous.
I he morning devotional service was
conducted by Rev. Nathan Huut. Rev.
a 4. Jurner Warren was moderator.
At the business session Rev. B. P. Browne
of Rockland was chosen moderator for
the ensuing year; Rev. T. M. Griffith of
Camden, c ierk and treasurer; Rev. Geo
C. Sauer, to represent the Association
upon the State nominating committee;
Rev- T. M. Griffith, to be a member of
the State Board of Managers.
Rev. G. G. Sauer gave the annual ser
mon. It was from text Rom. 1:15—‘ I
Am Debtor”—the theme being the Chris
tian’s unpayable debt.
The new pastors, Rev. Benj. P. Browne
of Rockland and Rev. Merriam Stewart
of Littlefield Memorial Church, were
welcomed to the Association by the mod
erator.
The ladies of the Baptist church served
dinner and supper under the direction of
Mrs. Benj. Robertson, Mrs. Mahoney,
Mrs. Clifford, Mrs. Perkins and Mrs.
Aborn. Their service was highly com
plimented.
me ariernoon service was opened by a
devotional service conducted by Rev/M.
S. Howes of St. George’s Church. He
was followed by stirring and informing
addresses from Miss Carrie B. Mastillar
working in Boston in the Baptist Syrian
Mission, from Dr. Whittemore, director
of Promotion for the state. He informed
the delegates that great advances had
been made the past year in the amount of
gifts, and baptisms as beyond that of for
mer years. The Churches of the State
had given since October last year about
$180,000 to the work of home missions,
foreign missions, education and evangel
ism. That the Baptists of the Northern
Baptist Convention had given ten and a
hall millions for the Home and Foreign
Mission program and that the Southern
Baptists had given $12,900,000. That en
thusiastic joy and thanksgiving were in
the hearts of millions of Baptists because
of this great accomplishment and this
financial showing was but an indication of
the more essential growth in the denomi
nation.
Dr. Mower also gave a characteristic
address and Dr. Stait of India proved an
impressive speaker with a fascinating
_story of 34 years in India. Once a trainer
of government elephants; later a medical
i studentjand then a Christian medical mis
sionary, he gave pictures of the rise of a
wonderful hospital, with its sixty beds,
where he and Mrs. Stait served tens
of thousands of natives as the only sur
geons for hundreds of miles around. He
showed the equipment built under his
direction, the furniture made by his own
hand and the surgical instruments con
trived in that far-oif spot, the native
young men and women with college edu
I cation carrying forward the work of this
mission and hospital with great success
during his absence. It was a thrilling
and gripping story of the work for hu
manity one consecrated man can ac
complish.
The afternoon closed with a commu
nion service conducted by Rev. G. C.
Sauer, assisted by Rev. T. M. Howes and
Rev. Alex. Henderson, deacons.
The evening session opened by a song
service conducted by J. A. Paquette and
the chorus choir. Devotion by Rev. E.
P. Kimball, Islesboro. Address on “A
Christian Education,” by Rev. Alex.
Henderson of W aterville, Sunday school
director for Baptist convention of Maine.
Illustrated lecture by Dr. Stait of India
showing nearly a hundred views taken by
him in the 34 years of service there. A
lecture never to be forgotten by those
who heard it. So closed a most success
ful meeting.
Waldo County Boys’ Convention
The last meeting of the executive com
mittee was held May 31st at which time
a report was made by each committee
chairman. Committee on entertainment
reported having secured places for 127
boys with board and room; 97 places for
room only and $127 in cash to pay for
board which means free entertainment
for not less than two hundred boys and
leaders.
The finance committee reported hav
ing secured funds amounting to about
$400 which will be sufficient to pay all
the bills necessary to give the boys one
of the be?t conventions they have ever
had.
The music committee have secured the
Belfast band to lead the parade on Friday
night just before the banquet, when the
boys will march from the Baptist church
down High to Church, up Church past
the Court House to High street and then
through the business section of the city
to Miller street, up Miller to the Metho
dist church, where the banquet will be
served and the first evening of the con
vention will be spent with speaking
around the tables. President Roberts of
Colby College and Ex-Gov. Milliken will
be the principal speakers.
Saturday morning the meeting will be
at the Uuiversalist church at which time
the convention officers will be elected.
Some boy will have the honor of becom
ing president of Waldo county’s first Boys’
Convention. Saturday afternoon a free
program of sports have been arranged
and it is planned to have ball games,
races, etc., something doing every min
ute. Saturday night supper will be serv
ed at the Methodist vestry for all boys
and leaders, not including those from
Belfast. In the evening the meeting will
be at the Congregational church, at
which time many new and interesting
features will be introduced.
Sunday morning the boys will attend
church with the people by whom they
are being entertained. Sunday afternoon
the meeting will be for men and boys
only and will be held in the Unitarian
church. Sunday evening, the last meet
ing of the convention, will be at the
Methodist church and it will be a mass
meeting for all who wish to attend. It
is expected that a large number will be
in attendance besides the two hundred
boys and leaders, who are registered d 1
egates. This church will seat about four
hundred.
As soon as the executive committee
can complete the registration people who
are to entertain will be notified as to the
number of boys to be sent them. At
present there seems to be an abundance
of room for these welcome guests, but the
committee in charge will do their best to
equalize the .matter of entertainiug
them.
The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. El
den H. Shute will be interested to learn
that Mr. Shute has been appointed Maine
Central agent at Phillips station. Mr.
Shute and his elder son Eldeu Jr., were
in town over Sunday at the home of his
parents, Capt. and Mrs. E. S. Shute.
