Absolute Realism Demanded in Film I _ Monte Carlo Reproduced for “foolish Wives.” Probably never before in the history of moving pictures has a film been made which entailed such a vast amount of detail as "Foolish Wives," the super- ! feature produced under tne direction of Erich von Stroheim at Universal City, and which is to be shown at the Colonial Theatre Thursday and Friday of thi< 1 week. Eighteen volumes devoted to deicrip- : tion and illustrations of Monaco and I Monte Carlo were orought by LeRoy Armstrong, the studio librarian, from Nice, France, for reference in securing the minutest details of the picturesque principality which the outside world knows chiefly for its sumptuous gamb ling casino The picture called for work on a set representing a suite in the Hotel de Paris ] at Monte Carlo, for which the furniture and decorations were copied from actual j photographs, while the towels, bed spreads, napkins and other linens were embroidered with the crest and name of the hotel. This conformity to detail is typical of that observed for the entire film. In one particular set representing a view of Monte Carlo from the sea, it was necessary to have majestic rows of cy-j press trees to partly conceal the preten tious structures from the Mediterranean. To complete this scene eighty cypress trees were ordered by von Stroheim to be transplanted from Del Monte 10 Monte rey. Twenty tt ousand square feet of lawn were transplanted from the tront lawn of the [studio to the back ranch for the Monte Carlo set to lend general attrac tiveness to the scene. A caravan of 800 people journeyed from the studio to Monterey at one time, for the production of some of the most inter esting scenes in the whole film. Bridges, terraces, roads and woods were built up to make this gigantic scene true to the original. JAMES W. STEVENS James William Stevens of Bath died in this city May 10th of a complication of diseases following a brief illness with pneumonia. He was born in Georgetown, Maine, Jan. 16, 1872, the son of Alfred and Margaret (Hanna) Stevens. F*6r about ten years he had been employed by the Pejepscot Pulp & Paper Co. and was the mate of their steamer when taken ill. He was highly esteemed by all who knew him. His wife was with him when he died and he had a daughter living n Rockland. His remains were taken to Bath Thursday by William L. Cook and later were buried at Five Islands, where the funeral was held. ISR ALL W. PAKKtR After a long and painful illness Israel W. Parker died at his home, 27 High street. May 16th He was born in Blue hill, January 4, I8J2, the son of Isaac and narniati (Carter) Parker. He came here when a young man and has lived the greater part of his long life in this city. He was a contractor and builder and had worked on practically all of our modern business blocks, in many cases as the contractor. Some of the finest private residences are also a credit to his me chanical skill. During the period of the Carter Shipbuilding Co. he made the cabins and fine work on the many ves sels they launched. For this work he maintained a shop near their yard. He was also fond of the water and in later years built several handsome pleasure boats. In early lite he married Miss Sarah J. Stephenson, who died many years ago, leaving him with lour chil dren, one of whom survives, Nellie S., wife of Willis B. Fletcher; both of whom cared for him in his last days The fu neral will be held at Ins late home this, Thursday, afternoon at 2 o’clock, Kev. George C.

Mayo died at his home on Northport avenue May 16th after a long illness with cam er on the liver and few realized that he was in a critical conditon as he bore his troubles without com plaint. He was born in Belfast 65 years ago, the son of James and Isabel (Sever ance) Mayo. When a young man he was engaged in the gr eery business in Isles boro. While there he married Miss Co ra L. Coombs, who diei many years ago. He also became a member of Island Lodge, F. & A. M , and always retained the membership. For some time he con ducted a store in Belfast and for a num ber of years he w'as associated with Charle; Edward White and Ralph M. Carter in what is now the Belfast Candy Company. After retiring and when he could spare time he spent winters in the south. He had represented Belfast in the State Legislature and had always been prominent in city affairs. He en joyed the respect and esteem of many friends. His widow, formerly Miss Vio la Redman of this city, survives him with several nephews and a niece. For years he was a regular attendant at the Universalist Church and Rev. William Vaughan, its pastor, will officiate at his funeral .which will take place Friday at 1 o’clock. NATIONAL GUARD NEWS A military ball is to be given under the auspices of Co-. K, Thursday, May 18, at the Armory. A few weeks ago a ball of a similar nature was held an 1 proved a great success. Many officers of the National Guard will be present to inspect the company The company, under orders from Cap tain Foster, assembled at the firing range last Saturday evening. Tents were pitched and a huge camp fire built for the comfort of the soldiers. There is much enthusiasm at target practice and many are showing up to good a Wantage. A silver loving cup has been offered by Capt. Herbert Stevens to any enlisted man who wins it three times for excel ling in the manual of arms. This will undoubtedly stir up considerable rivalry among the men.

Every person influences other persons for good or for harm. There is a law of spiritual gravitation, as there is a law of physical gravitation. As every form of: matter attracts every other form with a force directly proportional to their m <sses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them, so every person exerts,an influence on other per sons. This influence is often strongest when the person is least conscious of it. As actions sometimes speak plainer than words, so unconscious actions and uncon sciously spoken words often reveal more than those conscious and premeditated. A well-known and successful man said: “When I was a young man facing for the first time the temptations of a great city, 1 used often, during the first few months, when both money and friends were scarce, to walk the streets of an evening, to get away from myself, to forget my loneliness and longing for companionship. I waslooking aseveryone is, though often he does not know it, for someone who understood, someone who had fought my battle and won One evening, amid the hurrying, restless crowd, ‘like sheep with out a shepherd,’ I heard a voice in front of me. It was soft and low, and thrilled me like a chance strain of rare music. The speaker was a small, elderly woman walk ing with a tall, gray man. Of what she was saying 1 caught few woids That did not matter. It was the voice that held me. It spoke to me, dimly and con lusedly perhaps, but truly enough, of such pain, grief, and conflict as a boy could have but little comprehension of; and a victory proportioned to its cost. In my eager hope and boyish curiosity I passed them to get a glimpse of the face. It was lined and sad, and of an ineffable sweet ness. It matched the voice 1 never saw her again. But I have never forgotten. In the weeks that fol lowed that voice was with me. It held me like an unseen hand; it led me; and even now, after forty years, its i flueuce remains.” i_ MONKOE ’Oscar Hawes of Bangor spent the week end in town. Mr. and Mrs. C. VV. Dickey of Sratton, Me., were recent guests of their parents. Rev. C. A. Purdy of Winterport will speak at the church Memorial Sunday at 1 o’clock, and Rev.

Waldo Trust Company (The Community’Bank) BELFAST BROOKS CA8TINE UNITY “Peacock Alley” Has Romance and Splendor “Peacock Alley," which opens for a two days’ run at the Colonial Theatre, ia one of the most delightful pictures of th« season. It is a ravishing, dazzling Mae Murray presentation with all that mil* nificance and splendor which mark the blonde atar’s offerings on the screen. It is gorgeously costumed and excellently directed, the story running smoothly to its romantic conclusion. It pictures the romance of a famed Parisian dancer, who falls in love with m small town American youth and then finds that his home folks will not accept her because she has been a dancer. Tbe couple go to New York, but troubles come thick and fast upon the two who, for a while, find life a very drab affair. As the dancer in this colorful produc tion, Mae Murray scored with the finest bit of characterization she has ever done. She is si pported by a notable cast head ed by Monte Blue as the youthful hus band, and this screen favorite brings to the part all that genins for which he is noted. Others in the cast are Edmund Lowe, W. J. Ferguson, Anders Randolf,. William Tooker, Howard Lang, William Frederick, M. Durant and Jeffrys Lewis. “Peacock Alley” presented by Robart Z.
