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.
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.
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
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.

j Mrs. Luther A. 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.

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
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
