Maine's rapid growth as a summer resort state, until it is now known m '*the. summer pîay ground of the nation,** is due in a verV large measure to the extensive advertising given it by Col. ericE. Boothby, general passenger ijj^nt of the Maine Central railroad, with headquarters at Portland. How this has been accomplished can be best showfiln tbe story as told by the colonel to a repreaeo-tative of the Little Scboolmaaler In a recent ioterview. Jhe Printers* Ink man || always welcome to the "inner sanctuary,** as Col Boothby believes thoroughly in newspaper publicity for Maine and all that appertains to. her advancement and among his many duties as the head of one of the most important departments of one of the best managed, if not the laigeat, railniads in the United States, aa well as mayor of the city of Portland, he alwaya ânda time for a few minutes' chat with the "pencil pushers.*' "The first industrial advertlaing ever done of Maine was by a. little 24 page pamphlet which I had printed way back in the seventies soon aftçr I received. 0e appointment as general ticket agent of this company. It gave a l»rief dwcrip-tion of thé state, a list bf hotels whldi entertained tbe aummer boarders and list of special rate« for auniner toars. '*Ooe thousand copiea were ifsued and carefully mailed^to ticket agents in New England and the Middle States, located in the citie^ from which it aeèmed to me thl^ pages aod« ëTret^^dô-of ^«ooo-coples. From this germ InHl gréwa the advertising bureau of the general, passenger: department, which issuef each year a separate pubHoifon devoted to the M^e coast, another of the White Mountains, another of Maine's woods and lakes, each of Which conUin about 100 pages of standard railroad folder shce, 4x8 inches, made up of text and cuts and containing maps and lists of hotels, camps and boarding bouses in the section of which they treat, with an edition of ten to thirty thousand of each one per year. Besides these we issue many folders hi from four to sixteen pages, also, a pamphlet Riving, a list of all the hotels on or reached by this company's lines, another giving a list of summer tours, etc., until we now have in aur 'nature's play gr^ound scries*. publications, descriptive of Maine and her summer resorts. "We also, as you know, issue a monthly magazine. The Maine Central, with a circulation of from ten to thirty thousand copies and 20 to 50 pages a month, which goes to all parts of this country and to Americans in many foreign ciMes. "This monthly, for the modest subscrip. price of 50 cents a year, is filled each issue with descriptive and fine half-tones of interest to the traveler and summer tourist. ) "ThC~ phenomenal growth of Bar Harbor, the queen of all coast resorts, is due to the extensive advertising which we have given it, combined with its great scenic beauties, which hold the visitor when once he is induced to visit its shores and mountains. "On Waahiogton's binbilay in 1884, we opened our Mount Dessrt branch, which took the traveler to the shores of French-mans bay, from whence it was but a ahort ferry trip to Bar Harbor. "That year we commenced to advertise Bar Harbor, believing that thousands would visit it who had heretofore been debarred by the long, tedious trip from Boston by water, then the only means of jnoelalf I» ' I^iiii'isániwnif. s. t «iï froHn Mmâ along the achtis^r^ ilbp^]^ at ttf Àe rs ago 1 sent one of éy staff Lakes to see if there wai any rumors i^-had heatiil of the fiahing fherè.

' WeÎMw.have in conteifiplation the z4-verttefjlgof Maine's abandoned farms as <^^rftble places to be purchased by those who wish to establish a permanent aummer iooie. Secretary of Agricultural Wilson said Utat heknew of no better place fbcfiinneirs than the so-called 'abandoned ifirimrt of the Eastern Sutes, particularly New England. The farms were not abandoned because they were not produc-tltt; but because of the alluring cry of the^ltléaand of the big farms of the westi' ' Many who left these farms failed ignooMnlohsIy in tbe west and would be glad to get back again to the snug little hone with its big bams and blossoming C^tisrds which they threw away so reck* li^ljir in the pursuit ot riches which were never gained. Many have returned and these* &rms are being gradually re-'claitBéd^ What induced me to consider the; MT^ from the standpoint of the siimmar, tourist was the many letters 1 recdve^which asked fur ^ust such places. f^^other little dodge which I have adopted ia a series of inserts which now nqmber over one hundred, made up from dippiiuv which I have made from publi- eathmi iHbich have extolled the beauties «f I am about to publish in fbrm under the title '^"o'llwrs seeul*. 1b our monthly magazines we ha^iilifilfcslly given the hotel pro- rT'-^T his an- ......m i« «nd whitmA^vIa, m making-of half-toiics so wit tb^ would'get good photographs foim f^mb to work, and have in. duced theM to use miure cuts and less descriptive matter and everyone of these sent out has:ke^[ped to advertise Maine. As president of the Portland Board of Trade some few years ago, i caused to be issued an attractive book of 50 odd pages descripttveof Portland, Me., telling the visitors what they could take in trolley and steamtwat trips in and around the pty. The prominence which Maine men have attained in national affairs has done much to make her name well known and our annual old home week inovement and yearly reunions are doin^ much to advertise us. Wliat can be done in the future is hard to particularise. There are hundreds of ways iti which publicity has been obtained. but it seems to me that one of the best ways to advertise Maine or any oth» r state, is for the people to have faith in it and talk it on all occasions, socially, in business, individually and collectively. .Maine has unquestionably more to'do with the entertainment of the rest of the world than any other stale in the union." — Printers Ink Mm- ÜAlIMfÉ; ü4lÍlK.

An audience that nearly filled the spacious church gathered early, and from the organ prelude to the closing postlude the closest attention was given to the various numbers. The rector, Rev. W. O.
