J Assembly Hall at Chebeague Com
s pletely Crowded.
\ The biggest crowd that has filled
i Assembly Hall at Great Chebeague in
J many a day gathered there last Sat
J urday night to witness the amateur
i minstrel show given by some of the
J summer residents. And they were
, not disappointed in their expecta
i tions, for from start to finish the per
• formance was a real success. A
{ large share of the credit in the per
l formance must be given to the two
I «nd-men, Messrs. J. Harris Newell
j and Fred Komiosy, who in addition
i to keeping their audience in a con
i tinued uproar of laughter with their
[ scintillating jokes, were enthusiastl
! cally received when they sang their
i specialties "You Can't Play Every In
' strument in the Band," and "Smother
i Me with Kisses." Mr. Jack Lambert
i as interlocutor did his work excel
1 lently and ran the proceedings in fine
order. The greatest applause of the
evening was received by Miss Isa
belle West and Miss Esther Cooke
and both were forced to respond to
repeated encores. tiotn sang witn
great brilliancy and artistic feeling
and there was "not a person in the
audience who did not show his ap
preciation by long continued clap
ping. Great credit for the excellence
of the entire performance is to be
given to Mrs. Max West, the accom
panist, who was largely responsible
for the success of the entertainment.

Scores and Accounts of Games of
Past Week.
■», In the first game for the champion
ship of the island between the East
and West End teams, the former
were victorious in a well-played and
exciting game by the score of 2-0.
The game was a pitcher's battle be
tween Mooney and Train, with both
working in topnotch form. Only nine
hits were made by both teams, the
East End gathering four and the West
End five. The winners scored their
fi;st run after two outs on hits by
Howell and Holly with a wild pitch
by Train, and their second when
Holly walked and stole second, third
and home in quick succession. Moon
e?, although not quite so effective as
hi.s opponent, kept the hits well scat
tered, only one opposing batter get
ting as far as third base. The game
whs full of sharp fielding, Whitcomb
and Hall starring for the winners,
with C. Doughty and E. Ross sharing
the honors on the West End team.
The score:
r h el
East End —0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 x—2 4 3
West End—0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0— 0 5 2
^Batteries: Mooney and Holly;
Train and Stanley.
The game on Saturday with the
strong Grossman team of Portland, al
though seemingly one-sided by the
score, was for eight innings as excit
ing and interesting as could well be
idfagined. For six innings neither
side could score but in the seventh
the Crossmans put over four runs, af
ter the side should have been retired.
In the ninth they pounded Whitcomb
and Howell hard and before the side
had been retired, three of the visitors
had been at bat twice. Chebeague
did not make a hit off Fox's delivery
until the ninth, when hits by Nedle
man and Whitcomb sent over their!
only run. The score:
Crossman's — 0 0000041 7—12
Chebeague — 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1—1
Batteries: Fox and Tilden; Whit
comb, Howell, and Holly.
i Peaks Island House
Many New Arrivals During the Past
Last week saw the biggest influx of
visitors at the house this season, over
120 new guests arriving for stays of
some duration, while counting in the
transient visitors, a number several
times the size of that figure was
reached. The season this year has
been very satisfactory in spite of the
discouraging weather through July
and tile first part of August and the
numbers of new arrivals have encour
aged Prop. R. E. Howe greatly. .Most
of those at the hotel now are plan
ning to remain for the rest of the
month or up to Labor Day, so that it
seems probable that the hotel will be
well filled until its close.
The usual Sunday evening concert
was given last week and proved a
most excellently rendered one. The
numbers, which were almost without
exception ones well-known by the
audience, were played with much ar
tistic feeling and understanding; and
the efforts of the musicians were
greatly appreciated by those fortunate
enough to hear them. Perhaps the
favorite among the numbers given was
the 'cello solo by .Miss Mary Martin,
the piece selected being Schumann's
"Traumerei." The complete program
was as follows:
Carmen, Bizet
Cavatina. Raff
Serenade, I'iernc
Traumerei, Schumann
('Cello solo)
Andante, Dancla
Czardas. (Conpclia) Dclilies
Among the guests to register here
last week were Mr. and Mrs. Arthur
Onptlll, of Brooklyn, N. Y. Mr. Oup
till was for several years connected
with the Peaks Island House and has
many friends here. He is a graduate
of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and is
an expert illustrator, It being under
the direction of Mr. Rowe that his at
tention was first turned to this line of
work. A very clever little specimen
of his work was the poster put tip last
week to advertise the mask ball
which is to be held in the hotel ball
room on Friday of this week.

News Notes and Comments of Live
At the invitation of Admiral Rob
ert E. Peary, Miss Maud M. Inger
soll of New York City, representative
of the Century Company, who id
spending the summer here, conduct
ed a party of twenty-three on Wed
nesday, August 5, to Eagle Island, the
summer home of Admiral Peai^T
They went in Captain Cleave's boar;
the "Spray", manned by Captaui
George Cleaves and Mr. M. S. Rose.
As they neared the island, the Ad
miral's boatman, Captain Curit,
came out to meet them in his motor
boat and escorted them to the cove
directly in front of the Admiral's
house, called "Ig-loo," the Esqui
mail lur iiome". 1 ne mansion pre
sented a fine apearance on the rocky
eminence, fortified as it is by the
parapet built to protect it from the
inroads of the sea. The guests were
warmly greeted by the Admiral as
they landed on the rocky shore, and
escorted to the veranda where they
were presented to Mrs. Peary. They
paused a few moments on the para
pet in front of the house while the
Admiral pointed out the features of
the landscape, emphasizing the
beauties of the sunsets in the White
Mountain range, behind Mt. Wash
ington. Two wings have been buili
of stone on either side of the house
for the exclusive use of the Admiral.
One of these contains his Arctic rel
ics, the other room Ls his library,
where, surrounded by his books and
maps, he writes anil studies. The
party was now contested along the
path that leads over the rugged is
land to the Southern End. On the
way they passed Miss Marie Peary's
old-fashioned flower garden, wliejre
they came upon and were introduced
to Miss Peary, known as -the "Snow
Baby". Passing through the woods
filled with woodland flowers and wild
raspberry bushes they finally reaclfc
| ed the southern end, where they
found the surf dashing upon the
*ocks from old ocean below. There
was spread before them the whole
expanse or casco Bay, ftoin Cape
. Small Point on the left to Cape EUz
' abeth on the right, with Hahvay Rock
; midway between. It was a rare de
light to pause a moment for rest in
the seat made from the inverted
prow of a dory. Retracing their
steps by the shore path they passed
through Miss Peary's fern valley to
the surrounding pool formed by a
i declivity in the rocks and further
j improved by a wall of stone built at
either end by the Admiral. Just
above this pool they paused again to
rest in the inverted prow of a dory
| used by the Admiral in the Arctic re
gions and showing the marks of the
teeth of the walrus. The last thing
before their return snap-shots were
i taken of the Admiral and his gMest«?,
and the Admiral's beautiful St. Ber
nard dog, Rex. The visiting party
I.was composed of Miss Maud M. In
