The eighth annual grange fair, which was rightly billed as a "general good time," look place Wednesday evening in grange hall with an attend ance as large as the most sanguine granger could hope for. From 6 until 8 o'clock, Mrs. Harriet Dearborn and her large corps of assistants were kept busy In the banquet hall stuffing the hungry multitude with chicken pie and all sorts of other good things. The upper hall was handsomely decorated with evergreen and Incandescent fights of many colors. All sorts of articles were on sa,le and to the satisfaction of those In charge most of them were sold. In a miniature country store equipped with the usual number of boxes, bar rels and Improperly printed signs, Mrs. Carl Hopkins and Mrs. VV. H. Haywood disposed of all sorts of useful articles. The floral booth, trimmed with yellow and white bunting and running ptne, was looked out for by Miss Gertrude Barker and Miss Rita Eckels. Vege tables great and small were dispensed by Philip Franklin and George Barker from a large evergreen booth, while Misses Clara Eames and Eloine Frank lin served lemonade from a dainty bower of red and white. The fancy work booth was a delicate creation of artificial apple blossoms over white crepe paper, being in charge of Miss Zclia Johnson, Mrs. Lois Clark and Mrs. A. J. Currier. The little folks were delighted with "plums from Jack Horner's pie," which Mrs. Maverette Fisher carved with wonderful results. Miss Bessie Hop kins and Mrs. Cora Harris sold home made candy from a handsome booth trimmed in red nnd white bunting which stood in the center of the hall. The evening's entertainment con sisted of a farce "Aunt Jerusha's Quilt ing Parly" presented by the following caste: Mrs. H. W. Sargent, Mrs. Bert Miller. Mrs. W. H. Haywood. Mrs. E. L. Knowlton, Miss Myrtle Knowlton, Miss Bessie Hopkins, Mrs. Maverette Fisher, Mrs. W. H. Mixer. Miss Blanche Drown, Mrs. Harry Spauldlng, Mrs. Cora Harris, Mrs. Wilson Brown, Aus tin E. Miller, Alson Dugan, Philip Franklin, Carl Leltsinger and Alfred Trendall. David Harum at tha Auditorium. A dramatization of Edward Noyes Westcott's famous "David Harum" with William II. Turner In the title role furnished an evening of refreshing amusement at the auditorium last Friday evening. The plots of book and play necessarily differ somewhat, but the atmosphere Is exceedingly well kept and most of the Important situa tions retained. The play Is divided Into three acts, the first containing the re nowned "hoss" trade between David and Deacon Perkins and the second a tab leau showing the deacon and his balky horse caught In a thunder shower. The final act takes place in' David Hurum's homo on Christmas day when David gladdens the heart of Widow Cullum by presenting her with the mortgage on her house which he bought from Zeke Swinney, the town usurer. The company which supported Mr. Turner was extremely well balanced and the production was un usually good. Starr King Walker as John Lennox, the hero of the narrative, acted well and looked the part; Wil liam Henderson did excellently well as 55eke Swinney; Pliny F. Rutledge as Hnrum's officious clerk was amusing without overdoing his role; while Wal ter P. Lewis and Harry Lovian were acceptable In the roles of Deacon Per kins and Amos Elrlght, the hotel pro prietor. The three feminine parts were well taken care of by Katheryn Morse, Effle Germon and Mary B. Hen derson. To Mr. Turner's work in the title role nothing but praise can be given. Without exaggerating the ec centricities of the character he gave it a decidedly intelligent portrayal such as could be gained only from a careful study of the book and a thorough knowledge of character Impersonation. Three Left in the Golf Tournament. Only three men are left In the an nual tournament for the Fall cup of the Wantastlquet golf club. They are C. Menzles Miner, tjnanes j. Bingham, winner of the cup for the past two seasons, and Dr. L. . to wards. The last named two will meet In the semi final round, Edwards hav ing a handicap of 10 strokes over Bing ham, and the winner of that match will meet Miller, who drew the bye, In the final round. The matches In the sec ond round resulted as follows: Miller, scratch, beat White, 15, seven up and six to play; Tasker, scratch, beat Har ris, 6, one up (19 holes); Edwards. 10, beat DeWltt, 18, five up and four to play; Adams, 8, beat Holbrook, 10, five up and four to play; Bingham, scratch, beat Hubbard, 6, three up and two to play. In the third round Mil ler defeated Tasker six up and Ave to play In a match which brought out the best golf of the tournament. Tasker's driving was exceptionally long but he could not equal Miller's brilliant work in putting and approaching. The other match In this round was between Crosby Adams and C. F. Bingham, be-. Ing won by the latter 3 up and one to play. Adams's long game was as good as any seen on the course this year but he lost to Bingham by be ing erratic on his putts. Edvards drew the bye in this round.

Worden, with a pair of the most beautiful "goo goo" eyes that have ever been seen In town since last year's football season, appeared before Justice Newton yesterday morn ing as complainant against John Moore of Worcester, Mass., whom he arrest ed Wednesday evening for drunken ness. The respondent pleaded guilty to the charge and was fined 15 and costs. This he was unable to pay and consequently went to Newfane to work out the amount. Officer Worden tells a stirring tale of the encounter he went through Wednesday night. It seems that he arrested Moore on Flat street, the latter apparently so drunk that he could not stand. By the time the offi cer and his charge reached the lockup, however, Moore began to show signs of consciousness and was giving Wor den quite a little to attend to when Pe ter Deyo came up In the rear and dealt Worden a blow on the back of the neck. This so staggered Worden that he lost his grip on Moore who squared off and began to Illustrate a few pugilistic manoeuvres. At length he caught Worden squarely under the left eye and floored him completely for a second or two. When he arose Deyo tried It on the other eye and Mr. Wor den nearly took the count a second time. Finally the latter succeeded In getting in one with his billy on the top of Moore's head, putting him out of business long enough for Worden to get the prisoner In the lockup. Deyo meantime stepped out and bus not been seen since. A Serious Problem Indeed.

AN UNFORTUNATE NAME. Pius Has a Bad Record in the History of the Papacy. The new pope, in deciding to be known as Pius, has assumed a name which has anything but a fortunate record In the history of the papacy. The first Pius, who ruled in the second century, was martyred. No DODe took eral days at his home In Skowhegan, the name again for 1200 years. The second Plus was somewhat of an ad venturer in his lay days, and was poet Maine, Mrs. Phoebe LIndsey and Mrs. G. W. Burnett went to Bridgeport, Conn., Tuesday to attend the funeral of Daniel McLaughlin. Mrs. Wirt D. Walker and Miss Mad ellne Cushing of Plttsfleld, Mass., were laureate at Vienna.
