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.

Carver Endicott was a blue book. 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.
‘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
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.
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.
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
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
Besides Miss Dickson, the cast includes
Alma Tell, Rod LaRoque, Robert Schable,
George Fawcett and Reginald Denny.
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.
"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

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

by their example.
Resolved, that Liberty Lodge has lost a
worthy member and the world an honest
