Maine has more natural resources de veloped and undeveloped than any sec tion of this great United States, and yet very few outside of the State real ize what opportunities her citizens have. A climate unexcelled for anyone with led blood in their veins; soil in which practically every crop can be raised; unlimited water power available for nduslry, a developed commerce with internationally distributed products; lakes, mountains, streams, a coastline, and summer resorts that are superior to any pace in the whole world; and yet comparatively few people know what we have because the State has lacked a sys tematic and continuous Advertising Cam paign. If all our citizens had the spirit which seems to be an attribute of most of the People of all of the western Statev, we would collectively tell the world that Maine is the finest spot on the Globe, in which to make a permanent home or spend a vacation Let us boost together and “sell Maine to the world.’’ Roy Mayo of Swanville was in Belfast last week on his way to Castme to spend a few days with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Mayo. _ Peirce School Entertainment A v. cck in Jiuobonnet Land. The entertainment given by the pupil* of the Peirce school in the Armory last Thursday evening was one of the best things of the season and the expression has frequently been heard that it was a genuine pleasure to see natural real life without paint, etc. The children oc cupied several rows of the front seats and all seemed filled with school pride and endeavor to do their parts. What errors occurred seemed only to add to the interest of the large audience. Supt. E. E Rodeiick thanked the audi ence and explained that the proceeds of the entertainment were to be used to place single seats and desks in one of the rooms of the building instead of thedou ble ones now m use. 1 be seats really needed for the entire building would cost i12.">0, but he admired the teachers’ cour age in taking the proposition room by room and thought they would succeed in time. He also referred to what the school has done in the past four years with money raised by these annual en tertainments, the purchase of playing ground apparatus, including a slippyslide, a giant stride, swings etc., also an Edison machine, a piano and twenty-five refer ence books for-the school library. At intermission the pupils sold candy throughout the audience and did a thriv ing business. Many parents and friends were espec ially interested in the display of number work, drawing, arts and crats work on display in the rear of the hall. Thr teachers, Mrs Maude E. Towns end, Mrs. Annie K. Adams, Mrs. Annie C. Black, Mrs. Ella R. Foster, Miss Mar ian Woodworth and Miss Mary Houston, worked untiringly for days for the suc cess of the affair and came in for their share of congratulations. The teachers have requested The Journal to thank the parents and friends for their encourage ment, for loaning articles and materials for the costumes and also for gifts of money for the purpose ot the affair.

Miss Eob White Speaking of fun, mixed with lots ol snappy music and dancing, just ask some of the cast of “Miss boh White” how they likethis musical extravaganzi which is to be staged at the Colonial Theatre on March » under the auspices of the B If. S. Senior Cl as. The rehearsals are com ing along fine and much enthusiasm is being displayed by every one who is in any way connected with the show. The principals all have been selected with special reference to their adaptability to their roles and all are working hard for this, the best show of its kind ever given in Belfast. Ermo Scott and Tolford Dur ham will be screams as trie two million aires who lose an election bet to the Duke of High Titles, Harold Staples, and have to be tramps for two months. The way in which they render their hunger and Weary Willy songs is almost professional and if you are looking for a good laugh, you should not miss this one feature of the show. Miss Helen Plaisted as Miss Bob White makes a very dainty and at tractive milk iaid as well as charming society maiden. Helen Rolerson makes a very successful Quaker maiden who will not marry Lord Bashful, Orland Orchard, because of her love for Jack, Donald Knowlton, whom she finally mar lies. In tact, all the principals will be unusually good and then the choruses must come in for their share of praise. You will like the lasting melody of the song which the large group of milkmaids and farmers sing and will also wonder how they could learn such an attractive dance in such a short time. The swing of the music for the Flirtation group and ■‘I Can’t Help Loving the Girls” chorus will make you enjoy their dances to the utmost, as will the dignity in the Jackie and Colonial Dame choruses. The Fox Hunters give a certain pep to the show that would be greatly missed if it were not for the enthusiasm of these twelve young men. The Spirit of the Rose is a graceful dance done by ten young ladies with a solo dancer. This dance is sure to be one of the In's Last but not least come the Bubble Kiddies, wdio open the show and their festive balloons add much to the success of the show There will be 7> of these youngsters and they are all doing their best to make their number one of the best parts of the production All the way through “Miss Bob White’’ has a smooth running plot and these songs and dances give the needed color and variety. Tickets are now on sale by any mem ber of the High school and the reserved seats will go on sale at the Colonial box Office at 9 o’clock Wednesday morning, March 8th. Get your tickets now and have your favorite seat reserved on or after that time. i he Chase-Chace Association Alfred L.

George Dod worth learned with regret of his death, which occurred Friday at his new winter home in Altadena, Los Angeles County, Calif. With Mrs. Dodworth he had been coming to Northport for about twenty five years and their summer home, one of the most attractive and convenient of the colony, was bought of the Roberts family ol Reading, Mass. Two years ago they went to California and built one of the finest bungalows is that famous win ter resort, tlis health began to fail in the early winter and his only daughter, Mrs. Seth M. Milliken of New York, was called there about Christmas and re mained with her mother until the last. Mr. Dodworth was very liberal and genial and those who knew him best found many characteristics that stand the test of years of friendship. Last October, just before leaving for Altadena, they sold their cottage on North Shore to Mr. J W. Dougan, a life-long friend in New York and Northport. Mr. Dodworth was a New York man and succeeded his fath er as owner and director of the Dodworth Dancing School at East 49th street, until he sold the business a few years ago. He loved to be at Northport and never tired of speaking of the beauty of the North Shore and its surrounding territory. His wife, formerly Miss Helen Nash of New York, and their daughter have the sym pathy of many in their bereavement. It is understood here that his remains are to be brought to New York for interment. The advices state that Mr. Dodworth was operated upon shortly before his death and that his disease had been of ! long standing. Capt. Milliken had re cently joined the family i i Altadena. MRS.

Hartshorn of Belfast, was called to Bangor Wednesday and re mained until her death. Mrs. Hartshorn was born in Swanville 66 years ago, the daughter of Zenas and Mary Jane (Mitch ell> Downs, and lived in that town until about six years ago when she went to Monroe to live with her daughter. One granddaughter, Miss Martha Hartshorn of Belfast, survives her. Capt. Cleveland Downs of Belfast was brought up in her parents’ home and seemed like a brother to her. In her earlier life she wasja mem ber of the Methodist church in North Searsport. At the time of her death she belonged to Loyal Lodge of Rebekahs in Monroe and the Arconian Chapter, O Ej S. of Dixmont. A most estimablcflyomau she will be missed by many outside of the family circle. Funeral services were held in the village church in Swanville Mon day at 2 p. m. with Rev. Wm.

The Bangor Commercial of laat Friday says of a favorite basket ball player: “Interest is very keen in the big basket ball event which is to be held in City hall, Thursday, March 2nd, when the famous New York Celtics will clash with a team composed of local basket ball stars, and there is a big demand fur seats for the game. Manager Smyth has signed a con tract with Ken White, a well known bas kett ball star, who formerly played with the Bangor Professionals and more re cently acted as coach for the Belfast team. Hillie Johnston has been secured to referee the Celtic game and this an nouncement should meet with the uanani mous approval of the basket ball fans.” The Belfast High run up a very large score of 42 to 7 against the Oakland High in a game here in the Armory last Friday night, refereed by Marriner.
