From Its situation it Is comparatively In

jars. If you wish to ride you must tako a

bitterly opposed by the summer residents,
Is the only modo of popular convvyiiuce.

An uuusual spectacle Is said to havo
been witnessed the other night by Captain
Otis Ingraham, of tho steamer Penobscot,
off tho Maine coast. The air was very
clear and the sky was cloudless. The cap
tain could see the lights on Thatcher's
Island, Isle of Shoals, Boone Island, York
harbor, Cape Elizabeth, Seguln island and
Monhegan something unprecedented In
his experience. As the distance from
Thatcher's Island to Monhegan Is eighty-
seven miles, the clearness of the atmos

when all these lights were reported to have
been seen beforo was by Captain Itolx a
number of years ago.
