The New Belfast Fair Auto races at the New Belfast Fair. The announcement that Friday, August 19th, has been set aside as auto day, and that a program of sensational auto races will be offered, has aroused a great deal of interest. We are fortunate indeed, said Mr. Buzzell, secretary of the fair, yester day, in offering the visitors to our fair a high class program of races, and we are assured of entries from at least six of the most famous pilots of racing cars now available. Music, free acts, the Midway and other attractions will of course be in evidence on Friday, the 19th, said Mr. Buzzell. H ut the real thrillers will be witnessed on the track. Thousands of people gather yearly at the leading fairs and the New Belfast Fair will not fail to give the public what they want, regard- j less of expense. The Belfast track will permit of plenty of speed by the dirt ; track champions who will furnish the entire afternoon program. Some of the j greatest drivers have already been signed j for the speed carnival, best known per- I haps, is “Wild” Bill Endicott, the deau ! of dirt track drivers, holder of all New j England records from one to 25 miles. “Wild Bill will drive his famous Hud- j son Special, the car that has helped him to shatter all track records, and is cap I able of doing 110 miles per hour on a straight away. Another famous driver will please the ladies. Miss Zenita Ne ville, tvorld’s champion lady driver will match her skill and daring with the best of the men, will not drive just an exhi bition, but compete in two or more races, and asks no favors, but a clear Mack and a fair start. The auto races will offer a program of eight events, with races of from three to ten laps, and from three to six starters in each race. The events will be open only to professional drivers, as the man agement will not assume the risk of per mitting amateur drivers threatening the spectators with sudden death. At least six entries are assured, more than enough to make Friday, Aug. 19th, the red letter day at the New Belfast Fair. Friday is auto race day, so all you speed fans take notice, and save this day for a feast of thrills. CLASS RACES No. 1—2.16 Pace, 2.13 Trot. The Belfast Merchants and Manufacturers Race.

Hart, who has been a semi invalid for some time, from a series of slight sho ks, died Monday at his home on River avenue. He was born m Bel fast lifty years ago, the son of Gilbert M. and Josephine (Carter) Hart. With the exception of a few years spent in Law rence, > Mass., he has lived in Belfast, where he was employed practically all of his life in the Mathews Mill. He was a very Quiet man and unusually fond of his home and friends. For some years he was a member of^the Lodge of Mac cabees. Oct. 6, 1888, he married Flora D. Sawyer, who survives him with their two daughters, Mrs. Florence E. Bur gess of Augusta and Mrs. Clara L. Cun ningham of this city. Several grand children and the following brothers and sisters also survive him: Capt. Justin G. Hart of Philadelphia, Mrs. Josephine E. Gray and Lewis H. Hart of this city, Mrs. Annie H. Albee of Tremont, Alonzo C. Hart of Lawrence, Mass., and Ralph H. Hart 01 Los Angeles, Calif. The fu neral will be held at the chape! in Grove cemetery Thursday at 2 p. m., with Rev. \ William Vaughan of East Belfast offici ating. The bearers will be Beni. L. Rob ! ertson, Wm. L. Keene, S. D. Flood and j Albert L. Cuzner. TFlOMAS-ElXlS. — ; Pearl Thomas and Miss Sadie Ellis, both of this city were married at the Methodist parsonage, Court street at 8 p. m. Saturday, July 23rd. Rev.

He was so blue and his love making was of such a lukewarm nature that his best girl went back on him. For even among the elite of Boston a girl likes kisses with a little pep. So Cirver Endicott (Bryant Washburn is Carver) decides to be devil ish even if he has to disgrace the proud name he bears. But Carver hag had little experience and so he was very much of an "Amateur Devil.” And this is the name of the entertaining comedy which will be the feature attraction at the Co onial Theatre today. “An Amateur Devil” is Bryant, Washburn’s latest Paramount Production and one that ia just as funny as its predecessors. FRIDAY. i ‘The Stealers” Has Soul-Stirring Theme. A drama which pleases the eye and stirs the soul is "The Stealers,” William Christy Cabanne’s powerful human docu ment, a Robertson - Cole super-special which will be shown at the Colonial Theatre Friday. The appealing story'of the picture re volves about a clergyman who under the cloak of his avocation sins and causes others to sin in a deliberate effort to re venge himself against God. The picture sets a new mark in the art of the screen, all of the titles and many of the big scenes being in colors, made possible by a new process. This feature alone, aside from the tremendous appeal of the story, makes the film worth seeing. SATURDAY. Pearl White, undoubtedly one of the greatest stars of the picture world, will be the attraction at the Colonial Theatre on -Saturday in “Tiger’s Cub,” her second feature production. Miss White won her fame in the world-famous serials in which she first appeared. In “The White Moll," her first feature production, she showed herself to be a real dramatic actress, and she has followed this up with her “Tiger’s Cub,” a gripping story of Alaska, which gives her a role that suits her admirably. 1 he story is from the pen of George Good • child and is one of the most thrilling va riety. It deals with a young girl born and brought up in Alaska, the daughter of an unscrupulous gambler. Around her Fate weaves a net that seems to cut her off from love and happiness. The picture works up to a sweeping climax and event ual unraveling of the circumstances. MONDAY. The fourth and pgrhaps greatest George Fitzmaurice Paramount picture, “Paying the Piper,” by Ouida Bergere, will be the attraction at the Colonial Theatre Mon nay. This possesses the same meritorious points that have placed the Fitzmaurice production of “On With the Dance,” “The Right to Love” and “Idols of Clay” among the best pictures recently pro duced. The theme of the picture is based on the thought that in the mad scramble for wealth, people are blind to the finer things of life, and that the world of possession does not bring enduring happi ness of contentment. The principal char acters are. finally regenerated when, thru the loss of their riches, they realize that real living is not measured by dollars and cents. Besides Miss Dickson, the cast includes Alma Tell, Rod LaRoque, Robert Schable, George Fawcett and Reginald Denny. TUESDAY. Fretful porcupines, mild-eyed deer, nosey coons, chattering squirrels, rabbits and birds combine with babbling brooks, leaping waterfalls, towering peaks and monarchs of the forest in supplying at mosphere for "The Call from the Wild,” the great scenic drama ot thrills and throbs, to be presented at the Colonial Theatre next Tuesday. If you are a lover of the great outdoors and the starry can opy you will like this picture, which sweetly tells a simple story of human in terest in a most charming manner. WEDNESDAY. "The Courage of Marge O’Doone," By James Oliver Curwood. The story begins on a transcontinental train snow-bound on the edge of the arc tic. A young man who has "lost him self,” is running away from the misery and tragedy of a shattered romance. Then follows thrill on thrill, adventure topping on adventure iu that vast white arena of the frozen north that breaks the hearts and sinews of men. It is a smash ing story of surprise and suspense, of primitive men, beautiful, courageous women, fierce huskies and malemutes, a thrilling light between two grizzly bears, a grueling battle between men for the possession of a woman, the flight with the girl, the last stand—and then a thun dering climax beyond all anticipation. A masterpiece of fiction writing turned into a masterpiece picture play. Niles Welch and Pauling Storkeliave the leading roles Seven reels. MAINb DOCTORS’ ANNUAL CLINIC Fairfield, Maine, July 26.

Resolutions of Respect. Volney Thompson received the degrees of Masonry in Liberty Lodge, No. Ill, and was raised to the sublime degree Nov. 18, 1867, and passed to that higher life April 28, 1921. Brother Thompson was a man that his neighbors honored, as well as the whole community. He had filled the various offices in his town and was County Commissioner six years. Brother Thompson was, everywhere he was known, liked and respected as an honest man, and as an “Honest man is the noblest work of Goa’’ what can we add. Ail such men are seemingly a less to the community and we can only profit by their example. Resolved, that Liberty Lodge has lost a worthy member and the world an honest man. Resolved, that we extend to the be reaved family our heartfelt sympathy in this their greatest bereavement. Resolved, that there be set apart in our records a page for the record of his death and a copy of these resolutions be for warded to his family, and a copy sent to the Republican Journal for publication.
