By request the Peirce school will re peat at the Colonial Theatre next Satur day afternoon the children’s operetta, ‘‘The Meeting of the Nations,” so well presented recently at the Armory. Those who attended before will want to see it again and all who did not have j that privilege should avai' themselves of ' this opportunity.

The admission is 25 cents with 15 cents ' for children under 12 years. Bert Canning, otherwise known as ' John Canning, was before Judge Clyde K. Chapman of the Municipal Court Tuesday, charged with assault and bat tery on his wife and children and also lor drunkenness.

When teachers of a school will get up entertainments for funds to buy new seats for the scholars, that they may be more elhcient and comfortable, it shows that their hearts are in the right place. So the teachers of the Peirce school have made arrangements with the manage ment of the Colonial to present the can tata the “Meeting of the Nations” next Saturday afternoon at 2.S0. They hope that the citizens will respond liberally. With one exception and that from one who does not care for vaudeville every one who saw the show at the Colonial Theatre on Wednesday, March 29th, said it was the best Show that had been seen in our city for years. The new policy of presenting vaudeville on Wednesdays at this popular Dlayhouse has met with ap proval, and many are the compliments paid Manager Clifford for the classy man ner in which they are presented.

He also took occasion to speak in the highes terms of the ability and excellent work a Belfast young lady.

Then came a most delightful talk on the Trench Cana dian, introducing a rapid run of bright and witty anecdotes and sayings. He read several of his original selections, which he had adapted to the dialect from amusing incidents picked up from every where including one from Belfast. A brief sketch *of the life of Dr. W. D.

Beginning Sunday, and continuing un til Easter Sunday night, this church will hold a series of Easter services with Rev , Benjamin Beatty as the preacher. Mr. Beatty is the pastor evangelist of the ' United Baptist Convention of Maine and has been withdrawn for the present from a very successful service as pastor of a flourishing city church, in order that he j may assist as many churches as possible in brief campaigns of community evan gelism. This church has been making preparation for the coming of Mr. Beatty for some time and looks forward with the hope that much good will be done beyond its own parish. Invitations have been sent to the churches of the city and county to join in these Easter week ser vices as much as their own services per mit. Mr. Beatty’a sermon themes are as follows: Palm Sunday, A Challenge to the Church. Afternoon, The Vafte oT Personal vVork. Evening, Personal Responsibility. Monday, So Near and Yet so Far. Tuesday, The Greatest Thing in the Universe. Wednesday, The Sources ot Joy Con trasted. Thursday, The Romance of the Gospel. Friday, The Great Crisis. Easter Sunday, The Ministry of the Holy Spirit. Afternoon, The Model Man Evening, The Opening of the Books. Owing to the storm the attendance at the Bible school last Sunday fell to 95. All the services were maintained with good attendance. Tne mid-week service this, Thursday, evening will be an attractive one, in which the young people will have a large part. It is an inspiration to hear their voices in song, experience and prayer. Miss Hopkins will be present and tell of the Princeton meetings, and there will be a message from Mr. Beatty. A final and most encouraging repo t will be given of all preparatory work for the Easter ser vices. All members should endeavor to be present. The Federated Church. Rev. w. I F. Skerrye, minister; residence. 26 High j St., telephone R6-4. Sunday morning service at 10.45* sermon topic, “Victory | or Defeat: the Day of Decision ” A cor dial invitation is extended to all. Benjamin Franklin never went to col lege yet became one of the most highly educated men of his day. He was en dowed with an unusual mind. This un known printer’s apprentice became a recognized leader in the world’s thought. The Royal Scientific Society of England admitted him to membership. He talked on terms of eauality with the wisest men of his day; he “walked with kings, nor lost the common touch.” To his vigor ous and far-seeing vision we are indebted for the formation of the first Fire Com pany, the first Public Library, and the first Street-Cleaning Organizition in the country, if not in the world. If, how ever, a young man were to say, “Since Benjamin Franklin became educated and famous without going to college, I can do the same, therefore, I’ll not go to col lege either,” we should laugh at him and feel sorry for him, knowing that Frank lins are very, very rare. Just as a man is found, rarely, who at tains to a liberal education by his cwn unusual powers or mind and will, so we find, here and there, a man of such poise of judgment, such steadfast strength of high purpose, that he continues to do justly, to love mercy, and walk humbly with God, without feeling the need of the good ofTices of the church. He wor ships God in nature, communes with Him in great literature, acknowledges Him in daily service for his fellow-men But such men are exceptional. Generally speaking all men need the inspiration of companionship in worship, as in work or play; they need the sympathy, the strength, that comes from numbers. This atmosphere the church provides; this is its function and purpose,—to serve the needs of the souls of men, as the col lege ministers to their minds. The Sunday School meets at the close of the morning service. The teachers of the school give cheerfully of their time and their strength to teach the children the fundamental things of Christian character and conduct. If all fathers and mothers will cooperate with them, a great service will be effected, the end of which no man can see PRAISE TO WHOM PRAISE IS DUE. At the time of the election of Hon. John E. Nelson of Augusta to Congress from the Third Maine District the Ban gor Commercial, one of the best Demo cratic papers in New England, gave him a fine editorial and extended congratula- : tions. In its issue of March 31st the same spirit is seen in the following edi torial: “In the month of February, 67 per cent, of our imports and 34 per cent, of our exports were carried in American bottoms. This is a considerable improve ment from the days beiore the war, when but about nine per cent of our foreign commerce was conveyed under the Amer ican flag, and yet it shows that there is still vast opportunity for future develop- [ ment. We have the ships but their op eration is far too expensive. The needed relief appears to be at hand in the move ment for a subsidy to our shipping as pro- : posed by President Harding.
