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

Monte Carlo reports decreased rev

The congress of tailors which has

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

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.
