Guest Day Attended by Many of the People Here. The Boy Scouts of Boothbay Har bor, Me., are camping on Ohebrague Inland, near Western Landing. They left their home town on Saturday, Aug. 2f*, in a driving rain storm and on arriving at the ramping grounds from the steamer "Mineola," went forth through the wind and rain cheer fully, raised their tents, made up the beds on the wet grass, served hot coffee and retired at an early hour. It is to be repiembered that one of the scout laws is as follows: "He smiles whenever he can. His obedience to orders is prompt and cheery. He never shirks nor grum bles at hardships." On the following day, Sunday, the weather was more favorable and a number of the scouts found their way to the church on the Island. The troop Is composed of boys of various religious convictions. Another of the scout laws reads as follows: "He Is reverent toward God. He Is faithful In his religious duties and respects the convictions of others In matters of custom and religion." On Monday the weather man. de cided to give the scouts a beautiful bright, day and haa continued to do «o throughout the week. The dally program was made up on Monday the first day of the week. 6.30 a. m., turn out; 7 a. m., break fast; 8 a. m., dishes washed and beds made; ft to 12 a. m., Rames, swim ming, etc.; 12 m., dinner; 1 p. m., dishes, base ball, etc.; f> p. m., sup per; 7.30 p. m., camn fire council, etc.; 9 p. m., lights out The reVlar night watchmen go on (lnty in liirs at 9 o'clork and are shifted atlcj hour intervals through out the nlfp/\ The lovejy moonlight nights have been appreciated by all and most es pecially by 1 tie scouts on guard duty at night. Tip to the present writing, the scouts have 'l.een defeated in two games of bai<? ball with the Che beague team, and It has been very noticeable hoV easily the scout can take defeat, pimply because he is taught that defiat does not down him. On Thursday? night, outsiders were given an invitation to visit the camp from 7.15 to 8 p^ m. The scouts were happily surprise*! to see so many guests inside thlir lines, and Mr. P. E. Hare, the Scdhit Master in charge called the boys all together inside the circle of hurting cat-tails which had previously beiin saturated In ker osene, and while the grounds were all lighted, he questioned the boy scouts In regard to the aim of tho Hoy Scout movement, the laws, vir tues, pledges, salute*, scout song, etc. The scouts' answers to the ques tions as asked by Mr. Hare brought forth much favorable comment from those present and gftve the visitors a clearer vision of scoutcraft. The scouts then escorted the vis itors through the camp, gave three rousing good cheers In honor of their guests and soon the light? were all out and everything quirt. On Monday the 7t'h, the scouts fold ed their tents, lowered their large American flag and reluctantly gave a parting salute to Chebcague In all her beauty and to their ndw friends and acquaintances. \ Visiting at Bettihl.

Articles to Appear in Magazines Later. Williams Haynes, the well known magazine writer who has been spend ing his second summer at Cliff Island, has just returned from a ten days' cruising and camping trip among the islands at the upper end of the Bay. Ml. Haynes is collecting material for a history of the islands of Casco Bay which will be published next spring, and he has been spending the past month interviewing "oldest inhabi tants," digging through the valuable manuscript collections of the Histor ical Society, and taking photographs of the glorious scenery of the bay and of the old houses and points of histor ic interest. The legends of the bay—and there are a host of them—and the histories of the different islands have never be Scene Back Shore at Peak's. wisnes or unassembled. • The groom'is a graduate .of (he In stitute of Technology and son °t the famous artist, Xanthus Smith, who has a delightful summer home and studio on Bailey.

The series betwen the East and West End teams of Chebeague was brought to a close on Labor Day with a double header, each team taking one game. The second game was late in starting owing to a heavy shower immediately after the finish of the opening contest, and was called at the end of the fifth because of darkness. In the first game the West End landed on Mooney in the first and third innings, scoring eight runs, but Allen, who suc ceeded him, held them safe. Sapiel was master of the situation at all times, Cooke being the only Che beague man to solve his delivery to any extent. Mooney came back for another try in the second game and pitched good ball. Chebeague scored three runs in the second and after the West End had tied the score in the third forged ahead again in the fifth, scoring two runs on Lambert's timely single lo left with men on second and third. The srorp: (First game.) West End 30501010 0—10 Chebeague ... 00000000 1— 1 Batteries, Sapiel and Stanley; Mooney, Allen, and Asli. (Second game.)

Has Been Victorious In Majority of Games. Tbe baseball team at Chebeague has had a good season this past sum mer winning 13 out of 20 games for a percentage of .frfiO. While the person nel of the team changed several times during the season, the majority of the players have been here the greater part of the summer. The team has defeated Llttlejohns, Bus tins, West End, Portland Y. M. C. A., Naval Reserves, Pine Tree Club, and several other teams of Portland and the vicinity. A large measure of the success of the tram has been due to Paul Holly and Trevor Mooney, the battery, from "the Littleton, N. H., high school team. Mooney, while bat ted hard In a couple of games, has pitched consistently good ball. In the fore been collected, and few even of ♦jVy. native stock know more tlian a bit of the story of their own Island. Jewell's, Pond, Ragged, Pole, and Great Chebeague Islands are all the rumored hiding place of pirate gold, while it is pretty well established that the late John Wilson of Bailey's Isl and actually did find a pot of hidden treasure on the Cedar Ledges near Orr's Island. This is but a bit of the vast mass of interesting material at the command of the historian of the Oasco .Islands. Mr. Haynes is also preparing arti cles on his camping and fishing trips for Outing Magazine and on the pic turesque features of Casco Ray for Travel. Mr. Haynes has an article en titled "A Wee Bit o' Scotch," in the September number of House and Garden. New Petition NOW BEING CIRCULATED AT BAILEY ISLAND For Bridge Between Orrs and Bailey Islands. , A new petition is being circulated at Bailey Island now for relaying out a bridge connecting Bailey and Orrs Island (over the narrow Will's Gut. It will be remembered that a few years ago a similar petition was drawn up and work was even started on building the bridge. An injunc tion was brought against this.however which was granted forcing the giving up of the work. The petition which is being brought up now is drawn up with the idea of making a new lay out for the bridge and has been signed by a large proportion of the people. It is expected that the matter will be brought before the selectmen of the town of Harpswell shortly, and given a hearing. Thirty days notice will then be given before any action on the matter is taken. The island resi dents feel that the construction of such a bridge, by which a direct con nection with the mainland would be made, would very much increase the business and general trade at the Island, and cite many advantages which the improved accessibility to the mainland would bring. gome with the Naval Reserves, he let them down with only two hits; while perhaps his beat achievement was against the West End team, when he won out In a fourteen innlnf? game, fanning 17 men and pitching beauti fully in the pinches with men on bases. Holly has held up his end of the battery work in splendid shape and has filled in several times very acceptably at other positions. Cap tain Allen Cooke has played a spec tacular game In the field and on the base-paths, while Howell and Lam bert have played consistent ball all through the season. The nominal leader in batting on the team is Sargent Eaton, who hit for .BOO but only took part in three games, The real leader is Roger Howell with a mark of ,33ft for 19 games, followed by Lambert, and Cooke, the latter of whom slumped recently after leading the team with the stick for the great er part of the season.
