A pilgrimage to one of the Many delightful haunt of it. Desert Laud. Quot Whannel that april with his shores sote. The drought of March hath pierced to the Rote. And bathed every Veine in so Che Lecour. Of which Vertue engendered is the flour and Smale fouls Maken Melodie that Sliepen All night with open Eye. So Prineth hem nature in her Coral than Longen Folk to gon on perchance it was something of this feeling that started the quartet Forth on their pilgrimage which was a most enjoyable one though the Road did not Lead to Canturbury. The seson Prineth every gentle Herte and Marketh him out of his sleep to Stert and say eth arise and do thine so Phoebus had but shortly started on his daily ride when a Distant rumble be Token the approach of our Chariot. Boxes and baskets were strapped aboard and gaily we started Forth Quot while All the world was sleeping Quot the drive to jor dans Pond is a Beautiful one at any time of year but particularly so in the Spring when the ardent rays of the Sun Are wooing the shy buds when the Birds Are caroling their first songs when All nature is Iresh and wide awake from its Long Winter sleep. Away to the South clattered the Wagon freighted with its Happy passengers coming first to the Village of Otter Creek. The giant hand of Progress has been Busy in this Little Hamlet of late. There Are seven or eight new houses looking neat and pretty with their fresh paint a new store and the Church which is As yet unfinished. The whole Community has Laboured hard to obtain this place of worship and when completed it will be a Monument to untiring Energy and perseverance. Otter Creek is essentially a fishing Hamlet and the implements of the Craft can be seen on every hand. Boats were being repaired and in the Yards of several of the houses were Large piles of nets and lobster traps. The last straggling House was past and we were once again on the open Highway. As Quot All roads Lead to Rome Quot so on the Way to Jordans Pond one can choose from a Large number of routes. In preference to the county Road we chose the sea Cliff drive. This bit of Road two Miles Long with its smooth bed and easy grades is a Model of modern Road building and one of the most Beautiful drives on the Island. In the dense Woods at its beginning we saw several partridges knowingly tame at this time of year and a sleepy owl sat stupidly on a tree. One s attention is attracted by the Beautiful Barcli Trees that grow in such profusion Here their whiteness set of distinctly by a dark background of evergreens. Somewhere i have read a legend of these Trees that runs in this Wise a thlire was to be a wedding among the Trees of the Forest and Mother nature had made All sorts of festive preparations pc r the event. The morning dawned dark and Lowery and Mother nature was called by her cares to another part of the Wood. Before setting out she called her Colony about her and pointing out the signs of the weather charged them not to Wear their new gowns. But the Birches were vain. They had Beautiful robes of White and they donned All their finery and trooped to the wedding. Busy with merry making the time passed unheeded and Ere they were aware Mother nature had returned. They tried to hide but in vain her Sharp eyes had selected them. Call ing them to her she lectured them severely for their disobedience and condemned them to Wear their White raiment for All time in punish neat. To continue along the drive coming from the Wood the Road runs along the Edge of a Steep Cliff and stretching off from its base into the hazy distance is the Broad Atlantic where father time Quot writes no wrinkle on its azure brow but As creation s Dawn beheld it Roll eth a tartly in demand by parties who sup and Atni at the House and fish in the Pond. Quot liw Ough the boats were not out for the sea Ibn a couple were brought Down from the Louse and we embarked. Jordans Pood is one of the most Beautiful sheets of Ater on the Island. Like a Gem it nestles at the toot of Jordan emetic and the two Bubble mountains at an Elevation of 20 feet its pure water giving an ample Supply to the Village of Seal Harbor. At this season of the year tourists Are few and a restful quiet broods o or the whole place broken Only by the Rustle of the Trees the Lap of the water and the twitter of the Birds. With every breath one draws in life and strength and after a Day spent on its bosom night finds the wanderer Happy hungry and tired ready to sleep Quot the innocent sleep. Sleep that knits up the travelled sleeve of care the death of each Day s life sore labour s Bath Balm of Hurt minds great nature s second course.

Massey of Philadelphia one familiar face that will be missed this summer by numbers of society Wom is Madam Sullivan of Washington who for Many years studied their wishes for imported gowns. Madam Sullivan died at Washington saturday february 14. I o. O. F. Anniversary. On the right As the Road curls its snakelike Way into the Village of Seal Harbor is the Rhodes House which Asa Hodg Kins amp sons have recently built. It is a pretty cottage set among the Trees on the High Bluff Overlook my the town. At its feet unceasingly thunders the Waves of the sea through Ravens Cleft. And now there is but a drive of a mile and a half before the Pond is reached. With the exception of the Cooksey this bit of Road is the smoothest of the whole drive the rest not having recovered from the havoc wrought by the heavy Rains. This Road has grown up wonderfully within the last two years and can boast of a Large number of pretty cottages with More in process of construction. We noted with Surprise that the electric Light poles which had marked our path All along thus far continued along the Road to the Jordan Pond House. On inquiry or. T. A. Mcintire the proprietor said that he was called upon to furnish quite As Many suppers As dinners and it was almost impossible to satisfactorily Light so Large a House. He had furnished the poles used from the main Road in and this year they were to have electricity. The House is not yet open for the season but think will soon be put in readiness for the summer. The House has lately been enlarged the stable moved and a Large amount of improving done. During the summer or. Mcintire s hospitality Iscoui never before has there been a season when it was necessary to chronicle the death of so Many of bar Harbor s summer residents As the one just closing. Each fall As the visitors wend their Way southward their departure is viewed by the people left behind with a feeling that they will be seen another summer. Many of them have been coming Here so Long their faces have become familiar to the residents who Are always glad to Welcome them Back again. The past Winter however has made sad ravages in the ranks of the summer contingent and Many a pleasant smile and kindly greeting will be missed.

His cottage built in tsp a is at Schooner head at the congregational Church last sunday morning the pastor Rev. A. M. Mcdonald gave an address to Odd Fellows of which order he is past grand on the anniversary of their institution in America. On either Side of the Pul it were potted plants and on the Wall at the Back of the speaker the three links made of Evergreen showed Forth in Strong Relief. Promptly at 10.30 the doors were thrown open and the Long line of men filed into the Church dividing to the right and left and occupy de the pews at the Center of the Church which had been reserved. Or. Mcdonald took his text from mat thew 23d chapter 8th and 9th verses Quot but be not be called rabbi for one is your master even Christ and Allye Are Quot and Call no Man your father upon the Earth for one is your father which is in the address was very interesting and held the closest attention of All present. In abstract the discourse was As follows Mankind May be regarded in two ways in relation to his Fellowmen and in relation to his god. In the one instance each Man is considered As a separate part and his particular characteristics Are studied in the other each Man is considered As a part of the great mass of humanity and the study is then to find out what he has in common with his Fellowmen. There was once a Young Man who entered a shop where stained Glass windows were made. He was Given All the implement placed at a Bench and told to make the Best window he could from his own design. He set to work and made what he considered a very Lair window. Calling the master of the shop he displayed his Handiwork As it Lay i on a Bench. The master lifted the Glass and held it up to the sunlight and immediately the apprentice was filled with shame to think he had considered his work Good. Third Man must give himself for the Good of his Fellowmen. There Are Manj things which wealth can buy but Thos it most productive of Good Are those freely Given. These principals were then applied to Odd Fellowship and the ordet was not found wanting. The Story was then told of a Man in poor health who it went to Jacksonville Fla. He was. A. Member of the three link fraternity and it asked work of some of his Brothers. They gave him work and As he failed guaranteed his expenses at the and finally when he died had the body embalmed and sent North paying All expenses. The Man was two weeks in arrears but the sum expended was collected from his own Lodge. No Church of the Many in Jacksonville could have done this and this shows the need of such benevolent societies. The Church has no such department As this but will have when its is fully accomplished. This is a wonderful age that we live in and the pulpit is its most potent Factor. Would that All could understand and practice the principals of brotherhood which the Odd Fellows a thoroughly feel. The discourse was listened to by about one Hundred and twelve Odd Fellows number of whom drove from Seal Harbor to be . Saviour s Church. There was a vast Dit Terence Between the appearance of tiie Glass when. Resting upon the Benzli and when it was held to the Light. So with Mankind his hit ions with his Fellowmen May seem \ nearly perfect until they Are Niue Stigalt a i y the get of iod when an i Congiu it a it mass 1� Icen. In their relation to each other Mankind May be Reg Ardeil As tie Sands on the sea Shore each a separate particle in relation to Lod like a growing Plant each tire distinct yet bound together. In brotherhood there Are Thiee fundamental principals first we Are All the children of of whether we recognise it or not. The fact of our being born into the Woi id is enough to prove that. The prodigal son was just As much the child of his father when wandering abroad As when Safe at Home. Second each Man is dependent up on every other Man. Strength wealth and knowledge cannot isolate a Man. Pursuant to notice according to the requirements of the Laws of the state o Maine and the canons of the Episcopa Church in the diocese of Maine a meeting of the members of st Saviour s Church was held in the choir room on Friday evening. May i for the purpose of Organ i Ising a Parish. The Rev. Stephen a. Green was elected chairman and or. Harry Conners Secretary. After a prayer for the guidance of the holy spirit or a.
