Lawson, will be launched At the Fore River shipyard at Quincy Point, Mass., on July 10. She takes her-tem from the Boston copper man, vboie family own a considerable share - in her; but she i the creation In reality of Capt. John G. Crowley, pioneer buld-er of large Bchooners, and she was Resigned by Bowdoin B. Crowlnshield, who plaflficd Mr. Lawsons yacht Independence a year ngt. - Capt. Crowley is a great beTTeVCt In the schooner as a carrier of ocean freight. He built, at Camden, Me., the John B. Prescott, one of the first of the large five-masters. The George W. Wells, the first six-master, was launched fof him at Camden In 1900. The Wells came up to expectations. It was found necessary, however, to Wore her Inside with a great keelson 5f timbers and much of the hold which .Yi,;ht have been given up to freight was by It. Besides, all this timber was n itself no inconsiderable burden for . he vessel to carry. The Lawson has benefited from all Vhe lessons taught by experience with her big predecessors. The keelson has been made unnecessary by constructing her bull of steel. Thns her carrying capacity has been Increased very considerably. She gains the additional stanchnoss and lightness which a steel hull of her size something more than 403 feet long over all and 50 feet wide has over a wooden one; she Is provided with a double bottom which is divided into watertight compartments as a protection apeinet accidents and which can be -Gllrfi with water ballast if she sails LCht; she is lighted by electricity and eteerrd by eteam. ''' The deck of the Lawson Is an interesting place. Away forward, almost at the bows. isa deckhouse of steel, as is practically everything else about her which covers a steam boiler and & forty horse power engine which will turn the windlass and handle the two stockless anthers, weighing 10,000 pounds apiece. On the after deck are two more houses, ode the galley, the other a second boiler room in which is a twenty-five horse power engine which tarnishes power to 3 8 electric dynamo and ta the steam steering gear, The other four members of this steam crew, each with twenty-five horse power, stand in the open air near he masts, so .that they eaa be used In hoisting sail and working cargo. . .The heads of the seven masts are 105 fett above the wood-covered steel deck, the topmast being Oregon pine spars, 5 feet long, and the lower masts steel cylinders, 32 Inches In diameter at the fctd, which te 30 feet below tb wooden ikking. Each mast weighs seventeen tons bare and will weigh nearly twenty when ful!' rigged. At either side are lighthouses like those on the biggest skips for showing the schooner's regular signals, which are a great improvement oVer the cld- -- j t fashioned light boxes with their oil lantern. A new name must he invented for the oevewth mast, of course, and CppL. Crowley lias .suggested pusher am must descriptive and , generally satisfactory. Fore, mala and mizzeu were the designation given the three sticks of the old-timers; then came the spanker and the jigger; the Wells Introduced the driver as the sixth mast, and now 'the Lawson has added still another word to a list which has perhaps not even' yet reached its limit. - The seven-master has two deck of steel covered with wood. Altogether her carrying capacity is 8100 tons, double that, of the ordinary steam freighters. Tier displacement Is 104HH) tons and she spread 43,000 square feet of sail; yet by the use of the engines, she seed have but sixteen men in her crew, including her master and her engineers.- , She will cost an even quarter of a million dollars, which is cot much more than a wooden vessel -of the same proportions would cost, and Capt. Crowley expects that the difference in cost will soon be eared on her repair account. Every device for convenience and safety will be on board, including, oe-sides electric lights, telephone connection between the deckhouses and a steam siren whistle. One of her boats will be a 30 -foot gasolene launch. Altogether, few steamships are better equipped than the schooner Thomas W. Lawson will be. . MARRIED. HATCH BOYLE In Bangor, June 30, by John F.

MORE G00DTHINGS AT RIVERSIDE Theatrical Banquet Spread Before Large Audience on Monday Night- "I consider this weeks bill to be one of the finest ever presented at a summer theatre, said a local play-goer to a Bangor Bally News reporter at Riverside park on Monday night "Every feature is much above the average, while the finish Is one of the most sensational and daring acts which can reasonably be Imagined. And this seemed but the Opinion -of the big audience which crowded the rustic theatre and applauded) every one of the five numbers upon the varied and interesting program. The performance opened with Rado and Bertman, the former in clever impersonations and the latter a contortionist, who seemed intimately related to the India-rubber man. Next came Ward Caulfield In a monologue which was distinctly new and altogether funny, and this was followed by Ray and Wood In songs and stories; May Bohee, billed aa the Cuban nightingale who proved to be a vocalist of ability; and Del more and Oneda, the latter in a fine acrobatic act upon the trapeze which served to put a finish to the evenings -entertainment and send the big audience home In. the very best of humor. The program will be repeated every afternoon End evening during the remainder of the week, and, with favorable weather, the attendance bids fair to be of interesting size. In response to the demand to reach Nonhport on Saturday night and return early Monday morning, the steamer M. and M. will begin on next Saturday evening, making trips to Northport, connecting with the lart traintr Bucksport - direct for " the campground. The boat leaves North-port on Monday morning, reaching Bucksport in time to connect with the train arriving at Bangor about nine oclock. This will give all who desire an opportunity to spend Sunday at Northport and lose very little time from business.

Wames of the Lynn boxing club, who Is the amateur middleweight champion. The American had all the advantage of the rapid exchanges at the opening but eventually Warnes acted on, the defensive and by the aid of & number of facial hits, be got a lead which enabled him to win comfortably. ' In the lightweight bout,' Cates of Columbia was fully twenty -pounds, lighter than his opponent, A. Warner of the Higbgate Barriers who is the amateur lightweight champion. In spite of the disproportion, however, Cates put up a plucky fight. .

Some of the youngsters who turned In caterpillars evidently were born with their eye teeth cut. They poured naptha over the caterpillars gathered. Increasing the amount In bulk. The city official who had been receiving tile caterpillars soon found pat the trick and offset it by estimating the quantity turned in instead of measuring in sealed vessels.

The sash and doors have been taken oat, and the roof will be off today. BREWER NEWS. Work i3 progressing quite rapidly on the new Sedgeunkedurk. building at South Brewer. The sills are on and the frame'. will be. well lip by Saturday night. It is expected that the game of Tuesday ndght between the Algonquin Club and. the Mofse & Co.s will be one of the warmest events seen on Rollins park this season. The Algonquin s have reorganized and are now .stronger than ever. The jnost of the club will accompany the team to Beach Grove casino on the Fourth to act as trainers, .coach-era and Toters. , , J It, is Intimated that the' victuallers wiirapply for licenses separately at the next meeting of the city council, and then If they, are turned, down they will know exactly th reason for the action. A amash-hp occurred about .1 o'clock Monday near. the railroad crossing at the end of the toll-bridge. A horse driven by Augustus B. Cook of Holden took fright at the Bar Harbor train and shied Into a post in front of MerrlUs drug store, throwing out Mr. and Mrs. Cook And demolishing the carriage. Tbe people were somewhat shaken up and bruised Lut nothing more serious. Mies Beryl Spencer haa returned to her home from Westbrook, where she was graduated from Westbrook seminary the last week with high honors, E. S. Rogers of Fatten is In the -city for a few days. THE SOUTH BREWER SCHOOL-HOUSE. The matter of tbe schoolhouse at South Brewer will come up before the next meeting of the council. The vigorous protest from Ward 5 seem to speak the mindg of the people on their preference in the matter and now people from other wards are beginning to. take an Interest upon the score of expense asd some cant see why It is policy to pay from 33000 to $4000 for a temporary arrangement when that amount would almost half build a new building such os the people down there say Is .needed. The matter seems to settle down to a difference of opinion. The up-town members of the committee, men of good judgment, say that they have looked the matter over carefully and think that the proposed alterations Will supply the room needed for from four to eight or ten years, and that it will be for the best interests of the city. The third and ward five member does not concur and claims that the arrangement will not be adequate, and will not be for tbe best Interests of tbe city. Then there are the people or the ward who think that they should be able to have what they are willing to pay for; that tbe larger proportion of the taxes will fall upon them and that they should have some voice in the matter and not be dictated from tbe upper end of the city Then the people of four wards think that one ward should not necessarily -have its way, and there it ts. Mayor Higgins seems anxious to avoid leaving any more monuments in bis administration than possible. Thus far Brewer has built too small. Every schoolhouse in the city is too email; tbe City. Hall is too small, and even the Dyer's cove bridge Is too narrow. Past experience would seem to advise the use of a little foresight along about this time. , Nothing definite has been done about the school house, more than lo accept the report of the committee and advertise for bide, yrfclch Action does not necessarily contemplate anything fa Ether. INVESTMENTS. A long list of July Investments, offered by Tyler, Fogg & Co., the Bangor bankers, may be found upon another page of this paper.

There were a few loads of late-cut oft (he second mow and this kind of bay, although sweet and Klee In every respect except that It was cut iate, caused a falling off of from 15 to 20 per cent In the milk. The cows regained the loss after we .drew the late-cut hay to the horse barn, and commenced feed, lng the cows on th early-cut down a little In the mow. It has been stated in reputable papers that the early-cut hay contains more protein than that cut later in the season. I asked the speaker at the Institute. , about that, and he said It was not true; that th early cut hay is more palatable and the cows eat more and do better, that is all. I presume he Is right. We were feeding a fair, amount of protein In the grain feed anyway. Palatability made a big difference, (and the cows told, us about it right along. t BUTTERMILK FOR PIGS. Buttctmllk should not be given In large quantities to a sow that Is nurs- -lng pigs. It may so affect her milk, by causing it to curdle prematurely In tbe stomachs of the young pigs, as to cause tbe death of -the latter. If fed at all, tbe quantity should not exceed forty pounds to a barrel of swill. If the buttermilk haa been obtained froipA a creamery and haa become an -ac before It can be fed, better, avoid feed-lng It, Buttermilk as obtained from creameries, even though fed to shoats or pigs, when fed single and alone, will, as a rule, cause tbe evil results above alluded to. And yet there Is no food that may be fed to such great ad van. tag In connection with other food aa the by-product of tbe dairy.
