There were vehicles of all kinds, a large train excur sion and autos galore from Belfast. Wal do always stands bacn of her reputation for good horse racing, but this season she surprised herself.

Each race was run twice around the track making the heats 2-3 of a mile. The 2.27 class was started in two divisions on account of the large number starting and 1 the dusty track. There, were five heats in the 2.18 class. 2.18 CLASS—PURSE $100 Domino, bl g, (Marden).3 3 111 Ada F., bs, (Farwell).1 12 2 2 Toss Boy, bg, ( Walton).2 2 3 4 ro Bingo, bg, (Flagg).4 4 4 3 ro Altissimus and Sir Ambulator also started.

An Important Business Deal One of the most important real estate deals in Belfast which has taken place, in a long time, was the transfer in the past week of the 400 acres of land on Congress street and the buildings thereon, with the complete wireless station and. outfit, from The International Radio Tele graph Company to the Radio Corporation of America. With the acquisition by the Radio Corporation of America, the largest in the world, of the International Radic and Telegraph Company, the Westing, house Electric Company becomes a sub stantial stockholder in the former cor poration, it has been announced at the Radio Corporation offices. . Before the merger was elf acted, the General Electric and the American Telephone and Tele graph Companies held large blocks of stock in the Radio Corporation of Ameri ca, and many of the Geneial Electric’s patents were in use at the Radlb’s sta tions. Now that the Westinghouse has become a stockholder, the Radio Cor poration will have the use of other wire less apparatus, hitherto used by the In ternational Radio and Telegraph Com pany. This transfer of the Belfast prop erty is of national importance for it also carries with it the stations of the Inter national Radio and Telegraph Company located at the Bush Terminal, New Lon don, Conn.; Newport, R. 1 ; Nantucket Island and Cape May, N. J These sta tions are mainly for communication with steamships on the Atlantic ( oasr. Under the merger plans it was esiimated, as it is believed, that the plants taken over together with those already operated by the Radio Corporation of America, will be more than sufficient for present needs. Just what disposition will be made with the Belfast property has not yet been decided, but it is known that the station here will be completed and that the pres ent investment made by the International Radio and Telegraph Company of $60,000 on Congress street will not be abandoned. Orrin J. Dickey of this city, who has been associated with the International and Westinghouse companies since their advent here, will continue with the Radio Corporation of America, in the same ca pacity, as the Belfast representative, and it is expected that within a short time representatives of the Radio Corporation will be in the city and arrange plans for the continuance of the work on the Con gress street grounds, in increasing the equipment and bringing the station tc early completion and use. LINDLEY M. STAPLES. The death of Hon. Lindley M. Staples of Washington, Maine, Tuesday, Aug. 30th, removes a well known Maine man. He was born in Swanville in July 1840, received his education in that town, in the East Corinth Academy and the East Maine Conference Seminary in Bucks port. After studying law in the office of James B. Murch in Belfast he was admit ted to the Waldo County Bar, but soon moved to Washington, where he practic ed for over 50 years. During that long period he frequently was employed in the Waldo County Courts. He was a man of firm ideas, legal, political and religious, and engaged in his farming with as much enthusiasm as in his profession. He en tered politics in 1864, and was a life-long Democrat. He served his town and his county in many positions of trust. In 1890, he was elected to the State Senate and attracted a great deal of attention as “the lone Democrat in the Senate.” Few politicians were better liked than Mr Staples and few men have a record of more kind deeds. For many years he was master of Medomak Grange, was a past master of Riverside Lodge, F. & A M. of Jefferson and of Mt. Olivet Lodge of Washington. fie was a member of Claremont Commandery, K. of P.5 and was an Odd Fellow,and was also & past master of Washington Lodge of United Workmen. His unbounded good nature made him welcome everywhere. He never lost his interest in his home town and was a prominent ligure iu its centennial celebration a few years ago, and gave an address. Mr. Staples was twice married and is survived by one son; William M. Staples of Washington, by one sister and one brother, Mrs M. A Barker of Salem, Mass., and Francis M Staples of Belfast. The funeral services were held in the Union church with a sermon by Rev. Mr. Mason and a duet by Rev. and Mrs. George B. Davis of North Waidoboro. • There was a large attend ance and the floral display was beautiful. CHEAP Is a word of very relative importance. Nothing in fact is cheap unless it serves a useful purpose. The means by which we sell everything so cheap ON SPRING STREET is the fact that we buy things cheap and buy for cash, save all discounts, turn over (goods for a limited salts profit, do all the work ourselves, hence save money for you and I. Ford cars are a good example of cheapness with utility, and they are becoming cheaper, but no matter how much or how fast the price on new ones are reduced we can keep ahead in our reductions on used ones Come on and see us and ask prices. We will prove it to you With last week’s (wheels) ad. was nearly cleaned out of them, hut. we have just a few left at your price. Come and buy them TIRES are very cheap. They are the new fresh stock, of good ones, and we sell them so cheap that, we are now doing the leading tire business. (There’s a reason.) Come in and inquire the price on your size Last week we sold wheels in Hancock County, Tires in Knox Coun ty and all sorts of things in Waldo and this week we will increase our territory. If you need or want anything, no matter what, ask us about it and we will make a price for you which will save you money and we will buy anything at our price. W. L. West, on Spring Street. IN THE MIND Saving money, like every other good act, BEGINS IN THE MIND. Set it down as a principle from which you will never depart that a certain portion of all you make shall be saved. Cultivate this habit of thought. Thoughts are things. And the most fruitlul seed in the efficient mind is the constant thought of thrift. 4% PAID ON SAVINGS ACCOUNTS Waldo Trust Company BELFAST BROOKS CASTINE UNITY
