SUMMER ORGAN CONCERTS. On July the fifth at the Portland City hall the summer Organ concerts commenced. These concerts are held especially for the summer tourists who visit Portland and vicinity. The or gan which is considered among the finest in the world and of the first fivf» in respect to size is played by Mr. Will C. MacFarlane, America's premier organist. The concerts are held daily excepting Saturday and Sunday from three to four p. m. Last year these concerts were very popu lar, many hundred people enjoying them daily. Mr. MacFarlane will upon a written request, if possible, play se lections asked for on the date men tioned in the request. A unique fea ture of these concerts is that they are municipal. A commission ot" three prominent men is selected who serve without remuneration. The proposition is not to make money but to give to all appreciators of good music an hour of unparalelled musical uplift. No person should leave the bay, without hearing Mr. i MacFarlane render their favorite se-1 lections on this beautifully toned in strument. All is lost! The men are having fashion shows now. Neutrals are not halt so tired of j ■war as the men in the trenches. Scientists say that plants feel. Im agine the feelings of a mashed po tato! Doughnuts are to be made smaller in some cities. Why not make the hole larger? So far as the brass bands are con cerned, the elections do not come a bit too often A deadly parallel of the various of ficial war reports would be more dead ly than parallel. Rats that come from tropical coun tries on board steamers are highly undesirable aliens. Most European rulers will find their names prominently inscribed in the others' black books. Those all-wool suits made of vege tables ought to go nicely with a turn up nose and carroty hair. When a very eminent and respect able magazine begins to advertise "Nothing about the war," one almost suspects that other people are getting tired of it, too. As time goes on the number of men who are proud to have the bartender call them by their first name grows steadily smaller. Monte Carlo reports decreased rev enues as a result of the war, but this is a "horror of war" that the world views with equanimity. When our prominent writers are not advertising smoking tobacco they are purchasing particular kinds of auto mobiles. It is a hard life. The old-fashioned man who used to live seven laps, ahead of his Income has been forced by hard times to re duce the distance to three laps. One reason for calling womankind the "fickle" sex may be found in the changing waist line thereof. A man's waist line stays put in all but circum ferential measurement. It Is said that a motor car In Euro pean war service lasts only about ten days. Then it is ready for the scrap heap. Just think of that when you are struggling with your upkeep! The public is warned against wash ing its hair with soap. Sound advice. Always mix water with it, except when a thin quality of soap is at hand. Somebody says the women are going to wear high silk hats. This will re lieve mere man of a crushing respon sibility that he never really enjoyed. The Liberty bell is to be heard from coast to coast over the new long dis tance instead of being sent on a junk eting trip. These modern inventions do cut out some of tbe old abuses A dispatch states that China will give $25,000 for the murder of an American. She can get him murdered much cheaper than that in this coun try, if the old scale of thug prices 1b still in force. Live stock in the United States is increasing in numbers, according to the most recent government reports; and it is the privilege of every one to say it is high time. A million more beef cattle than a year ago is one en couraging item. The congress of tailors which has decreed the "Prince Albert" coat must go are very foolish if they think the young Daniel Websters and Henry Clays of the law schools of this coun try are going to accept any dictation of that kind. Bustins Island unce more Bustins stands in the limelight and gives her greeting to all who love her and would know her. A welcome, spicy with the bal sam's breath, staunch as the rock bound coast, and sweet as the songs of the thousands of birds that are nesting in her trees. She asks us to note a few changes and improve ments: One new cottage on the mid dle road; additions and changes to many others; a lavish use of paint and still other improvements; a new well for the cottagers on the south end, which it is hoped will prove adequate in a dry time and the im proved conditions of the roads un der the personal supervision of Mr. C. W. Newhall. who came to Bustins early in May and has been untiring in his efforts to make "good" on the roads and rid the Island of the "Browntail." She welcomes "home" all the old familiar friends and gives her heurti est greeting to the new ones, with the hope that when the summer ends they will feel "twice glad," glad that they have been here and glad to come again.

Up to the present mo ment, all reports have not been re ceived, hut we hear that cottages that have never leaked before proved to be sieves and homes that had been partially rain proof, proved shells for good sized lakes; with one member of a family asleep (?) in bed with an umbrella over head (whether inverted or not we cannot ascertain) another lloating around the dining room on chair rafts, and the maid in the kitchen washing dishes in rubber boots and oilers.
