CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, NORTH BELFAST. Wherever there is a com munity that has lost interest in its church or churches, there is almost certainly a community that is on the down grade. Without the church services, community life does not find its highest expression, and decadence has already set in. That the people of North Belfast are interested in the material and moral welfare of their village is seen in the interest they take in their church. The church hell does not call the people to worship in vain. They respond in such a way as indicates that the service meets a real need in their lives. The children listen with profound attention to the talks given by Rev. A. C. Elliott for their especial benefit, and the older folks appreciate the portion pro vided for them. Everybody is cordially invited to attend the service on Sunday evening at 7.30, when Mr. Elliott will again preach. MRS, EMMA B. BARRETT The Skowhegan News in the Kennebec Journal of June 25th has the following obituary of a highly esteemed former resident of Belfast: Mrs. Emma Bowen Barrett, widow of the late Timothy Barrett, died Friday afternoon at 1.30 o’clock at the Kennebec Valley hospital, where she had been a patient for a few weeks. Mrs. Barrett’s health had been failing since last winter. She was born in Waldo and was the daughter of Washington and Mary (Ham ilton) Bowen. She was 71 years of age the seventh of this month. Mrs. Barrett was twice married. Her first husband was Hanson Young and they were the parents of four children, only one of whom is living, Roy E. Young of Belfast. Her husband died nearly 45 years ago. About 15 years ago Mrs. Young was mar ried to Timothy Barrett, a lawyer of Canaan, where they resided until his death, which occurred several years ago. For some time, until her health failed, Mrs. Barrett lived with Mrs. Fannie Wildes at her home on Madison avenue. Mrs. Barrett is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Martin of Winterport and Mrs. Esther Jackson of Whitman, Mass., and two brothers, Eslie and Jacob Bowen, both of Belfast. Mrs. Barret formerly belonged to the Canaan Grange and was a member of the Federated church at the time of her death. She was a woman much respected and loved by all who knew her. The funeral service will be held Monday afternoon at 1.30 o’clock at the home of Mrs. Fannie Wildes. BLN AMES WILLIAMS’ bVERED The Bookish Chat and Comment by John Clair Minot in the Saturday issue of the Boston Herald gives an excellent synopsis of Ben Ames Williams’ Evered, the scene of which is laid in Searsmont. In general comment Mr. Minot says: “In this story Mr. Williams uses such material as Edwin Arlington Robinson delights in. In its impressive picture of the play of elemental passions there is something in the novel very suggestive of Mr. Robinson’s “Avon’s Harvest.” Even the setting of both is in Maine, though each deals with things that are universal rather than peculiar to any locality. Mr. Williams places the hap penings in a Maine coast county, if we may judge by the names of the towns and by other allusions, but he is hardly true to the Maine type either in his char acters or in their language, and his nat ural history is open to criticism. But the story itself, which is not a long or com plicated one, is a work of art—a hard and J haunting story, a grim and gripping story.” MRS. HELEN M. SANBORN. Mrs. Helen M. (Aldus) Sanborn, widow of the late William H. Sanborn, a cap tain in the Civil War, died Tuesday in Bangor at the age of 79 years. She was born and until within a few years made her home in Belfast, where she was well known and highly esteemed for her many womanly qualities. One son, Ropcoe Sanborn of Bangor, with whom she lived, survives her. The funeral will be held at the L'niversalist church Friday at 2 p. m. and the interment will be in the fam ily lot.

Hammons was hostess at j a charming party given Monday evening ! at her attractive home on Cedar street j Its purpose was to formally announce the i engagement uf Miss Florence Marie • Brown of this city and Malcolm Dins more Billington of Lynn, Mass. The decorations were in pink and green; the parlor with roses and the dining room in carnations, most artistically arranged. The dining table with covers for sixteen was a picture in old ivory dishes and dainty sterling service. The centrepiece was an immense Jack Horner pie of pink tissue filled with unique favors attached to pink ribbons extending to each plate and surmounted by a large engagement ring holding a dainty bride with her groom. Surrounding the cake were min iature candelabra with pink candles. The favors were soldier cupids. The place cards were dainty brides and cupids standing in hearts. The nut baskets were also pretty pink and white crea tions. Under each plate was an imita tion magnifying glass which was a source of wonderment to the guests, who soon realized that their hostess was to use hers in reading a telegram to announce the engagement. It was a pleasant and complete surprise to all the guests. Anotner surprise was the presence of Mrs. George G. McClellan of Washing ton, D. C., who assisted the hostess in receiving.

Waldo Trust Company BELFAST BROOKS CASTINE UNITY J Girl Works in Circus as Aid to Career by Sketching Characters The Boston Sunday Post has this to say of one of the young ladies traveling with Sparks Circus, which exhibited in Belfast June 25th: Her uncle owns the circus, and when she graduated from a Southern girls* school this month, Miss Beatrice Sparks declined a tour of Europe with two of her classmates in order lhat she might travel with the show and gather material for a career as a magazine illustrator and cari caturist. Beatrice has been with the circus just two weeks — two weeks “ trouping” through Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine—and she adores the life. She's not just a visitor, either, for she varies her activities with her sketch book by riding high school and jumping horses in the big show arena. Fact is, this girl of 18 puts “Sam,” a 16-hand, rangy hunter, over a live-fcot hurdle in the hippodrome track twice each day. To the members of the younter set in Macon, Ga., the winter quart: rs of the Sparks' circus and Sparks* horn 3 town, this equestrian feat of Beatrice’s is nothing unusual—for her. The Macon youngsters pride themselves on their horse activities, and it is smarter there to be a finished horsewoman than to drive a h gh-powered car or to swank it as a ballrc >m belle. And Beatrice has a name in vlacon as a fearless, light handed rider of jumpers. Her aunt, Mrs. Charles Sparks, has received a letter from a debutante: “We’re not at all sur prised at Bes's putting the jumper over the bars foi the entertainment of the great American public,” wrote the girl, "but we really expected to hear that she is out-wild Westing your broncho busters and bull-doggers.” But Miss Sparks’ appearance ir. the ring is merely a lark. She’s very busy each day in sketching about the show lot. She’s not an amateur, at all, for she is ranked high in exhibitions of black and white work at the Chicago Art Institute, where she has studied several summers. It has been stated that Beatrice adores the circus, and one may wonder what the circus thinks of her. Well, Horn Charles Sparks, her uncle andjjhe owner, down to the last elephant man—to the last pony boy—“Mis’ Bee” is literally worshipped. She’s never too tired to do a sketch of the most humble of the 300 people with the troupe. IRVIN G l. knowlton Irvine L. Knowlton died at the Waldo County Hospital Thursday, June 23rd, ol tuberculosis, with which he had been ill for some time. He was born in Belfast, Dec. 29, 1866, the son of Martin V. B and Mercy (Dunbar) Knowlton. His early life was spent in Belfast, but for many years he went to sea, making his home in Rockland. About a week before Ins death he came to the home of his sister, Mrs John A. Fogg, High street. Besides his sister, one brother, E. Augustus Knowl ton of Brunswick, survives him. The funeral was held at the Fogg home at S p m. Friday with Rev. William Vaughan officiating. The bearers were Messrs. I T. Clough, Eben M. Hatch, Arthur Ham ilton and Henry Brown. Prof, and Mrs. Charles D Cool and children, Robert and Elizabeth ot Madi son, Wis., arrived Monday to spend the summer at the Battery. Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Starrett o.v Springfield, Mass., are guests o the for - mer’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank J, Starrett, at the Battery.
