DESERT ST., BAR HARBOR. ME.  Bar Harbor has many odd and pleasant entertaniments in the course of the winter season, but perhaps none is more unique or more enjoyed than the **Way Bale" ball which has been an annual event for eight years given by the "Way Bait fellers", P. W. Blanchfield, J. C. Farrell, E. J. Trussell, Lorenzo Stewart, Osmond Emery, Frank L. Brewer, Fred Small, T. C. Higgins, John Har-ris, G. £. Soper, Seth Hopkins, H. Martin Clark, W. H. Higgins, P. Fitzgerald, M. F. Richards, Robert Stanley, Charles Shann,'Arthur Partridge, Frank Leigh-ton, WnUam Jordan, C. E. Whitmore. Last Tuesday night the Casino was the scene of this social event.  Passing through the outer doors the atmosphere ot the twentieth century was left behind. Everything within brought memories of by-gone days. Ropes of rye straw were festooned from the balcony meeting higti in the center of the hall and from their point of union hung an ox yoke and a pair of balances. The front of the balcony was also festooned with the straw, which made the prettiest decoration imaginable.  Two "grandfathers clocks" were stationed in the corners at either side of the entrance, near the stage was a spinning wheel, and the back wall wgs ornamented with a rare piece of tapestry, a quilt made and "set" by Vesta Stubbs' great, great grandmother. The lower wall was a veritable picture gallery and from its white background showed forth to advantage the somber colored portraits of the forefathers of Mt. Desert island. There was Capt. James Hamor, the pioneer hotel keeper, and Mary, the wife of master Brewer, and Captain Eben Young with, Prudence, his'wife. Aunt Abbie Higgins' mother looked down upon children, grand children and great grandchildren. A quaint picture of Chester and Everett Brewer in their childish days caused much amusement. There were queer old pictures, vellow with age, of the Constitution and the Guerrière, and many of the familiar faces of the early presidents were in the company. There were large colored pictures, too, depicting beautiful maidens in gowns of wonderful hues walking amid gardens of impossible colored A Dwers:*inVact, !t seemed as if all the old pictures on the island were there, taken down from the walls of the old homesteads and brought from musty garrets.  The stage presented an old fashioned barn scene. The hay mow with its ladder and the old sleigh half buried in the hay looked familiar to many eyes. Below it were the stalls and the walls hung with barne&s and the implimeuts of the farm. 1 n one corner hung a dressed hog, lambs frisked about in their fold and geese eiiliveoed thp music by their hissing. In the center of the floor were the musicians,, dressed, in Way Bak attire and seajted on cl^airs ingeniously made from barrelsu  Those in costume assembled in the dressing rooms below the hall, and when the musit for the march sounded, the lon^f-column wound its way upstairs and Issued from the door at the left of the stage. Truly, it was a weird and wonderful prQCpssion, some of th« costumes grote^ye, n;)apy of them handsome, all sayoi.ing oi the days that are past and gone.  The march was,led by Mr. and Mrs. T. C Higginsj dressed as George and Martha Washlnjgton, and following them «were fuUf toùples.  There were seventeen numbers on the  agrees ailk dreu, white poke bonnet trimmrd with pink roses, cameo jewelry; Mr. Bird, old-fashioned dress suit  James Bernadini, old fashioned make up of village post master, Mrs. Harry Beswick, old-fashiSned country woman;  EDWARD B. fñEAM, Cottages for Rent or for Sale^  Mr. Beswjck, farmer, with wig and goatee.

TOWN MEETING.  m Votes Cast Aagbit 812 ol Last-Year and 8)8 of the Year Bdk>fe^  Monday mortiing dawned brlghtiaad'ii fair with the temperature just low enough ^ to make heavy wraps desirable. The wind > of the few days previous had been suffi*} dent to dry up most of the mud and whatt was not, was frozen hard enough to makè r wheeling good. As a result there were large number of ap-island people in town i drawn hither by that momentous occasion.> the annual town meeting.  As in previous years the preliminaries, for this annual gathering of the people had been well attended to. The usual curb^ stone caucuses and corner store meetings had' been held in due form. The fitness; of the candidates for the various position»-had been discussed, the ins and outs.fors-the various schemes for which appropriations were to be asked had been considered and prognostications of the outcome-oi the election were as plentiful as one could desire.  It was a surprise to many to see such % large gathering at the Casino. At times during the day every seat in the galleries.  the Casino was occupied, a large pro» portion of the audience being womem. The seats on the lower floor of the h^use had been removed and the floor covered with canvns on top of which was a thick layer of sawdust. Here were gathered the. forces which weie to decide the fate-o--the several candidates. So crowded was the hall that final electioneering was done with difficulty. While all were deeply interested in the outcome of the election, good nature was the prevailing characteristic and not a éiscordant note was struck.. The meeting was called to order at 10,15 by the town clerk, who proceededl to read the town warrant. Upon compie tion of the reading, the first article ^'as-. taken up.  Article I—To choose a Moderator t«> preside at said meeting.  Upon counting the ballots Blon- E. Whitney was declared unanimously elected and was sworn in by the clerk. "^T^e seco^B® article liTlhe warrant "wat; then taken up.  Article 2—To choose a town clerk for the ensuing year.  Whole number of votes cast 47 all for W. H. Sherman, who was declarecii elected and the oath administered by the moderator.  On motion ot Klihu 1'. Hamor articlc • three was laid on the table.  Article 4—To choose Selectmen aur.. Asse.s.sors for the en.suing year.  Dr. Robert Amory made a mc^tiop itia this article be divided and that action be taken ort'that portion relating to the election of selèctmen, the e'ection of .issess-ors to be left for later action.  Ebep-Hamor suggested that Llie assessors bfc-eHected by ballot alter the election of selectmen.  John E.Blinker, Jr.,said the law re<(uirer,, that the selectmen and assessors be elect ed bvt ballot, but that it is customary ic defer the election of a.ssessors until a latev period in thé meeting when the selectmen had been elected assessors.  l),r. .Ao^ory's motion was unanimously carried.  The moderator said that it had been cu^tQnû^ry (o use the check list, arid he called the four condidates to the troni and asked them to agree upon what ÎJbQU^d.bç.doïxe in re/ercnce thereto, their cecommeodation to be referred to the .mee.tjn^fqr ratifk:ation.
