Old Orchard Beach

The vacation question is one that comes up for discussion in the families of our city friends with the regularity of the seasons, and now that July has come and the display of charming light fabrics in the shop windows has grown to be an old story, it is time that the place where the summer vacation is to be spent shall be decided upon. In those homes where a wise father has provided a cottage by the sea, the question is settled, and settled right; but in the great majority of homes the question "Where shall we go?" is still unanswered. One of the many purposes of this article is to assist this latter class to a solution of this very important question.

It is readily admitted by the observing men and women of this country that Maine is, par excellence, the resort state of the nation, and it is easily demonstrable that Old Orchard is, to the average summer vacationist, the best of all the many admirable vacation centers— the "queen rose in Maine's fair garden of resorts".

In the first place, Old Orchard is a beautiful and healthy place, having the widest, firmest and smoothest beach on the coast, charming woodlands, beautiful drives, the longest ocean pier in the United States, perfectly safe surf bathing, besides the hundred and one attractions that may be found at some dozen or so of the most famous watering places combined. The air is delightful and the water pure and abundant, while the health of the place is something remarkable.

The accommodations for permanent and transient guests are ample and varied, beginning with the palatial hotel and running all the way down the line of the smaller hotels and boarding houses until the modest cottage with one or two boarders is reached. In connection with the accommodations offered by the hotels and boarding houses at Old Orchard, it is well to impress upon the tourist that he gets more for his money here than at any other resort in the world. Once in a while, it is true, you will hear of a complaint on the score of high prices, but when you trace these up to their source you will find that they come from that few who grumble because they love to grumble—who would kick at the pearly gates and the golden streets of Heaven, if St. Peter allowed them to slip by him as he nodded in his chair.

The best evidence of the popularity and economy of Old Orchard as a summer home is furnished in the constancy of its patrons and the growth of its patronage through the influence of its summer residents.

Year after year you see the same faces, with new ones added from the circle of acquaintances of the old faces, and these latter have increased so steadily that the business here has more than doubled during the past ten years. And this prosperity is due to the place, because it has steadily improved and bettered itself. All the hotels and boarding houses are constantly adding desirable features, and the town itself has been alive to the situation, as is evidenced by the improved roads and sidewalks, and a general assumption of cosmopolitanism in its deportment towards the "stranger within its gates," as well as towards its own business people. Within the past two years over one hundred new cottages and hotels have been built, and it is observable that these cottages are of a better class than formerly, while those in the Grand Beach section will compare favorably with like buildings anywhere in the country.

The new town house, just completed, is of handsome architecture, and most excellent and complete in its arrangements, affording the most ample accommodations for the town officers, public library, police station, fire apparatus and horses, besides having a grand assembly hall, capable of seating five hundred persons, with a fine stage 21x40 feet in size.

Town Topics

M. F. Porter has been making quite extensive repairs on the Hotel Everett.

Geo. E. Morrill of So. Berwick, who formerly worked here in the Postal Union Telegraph office, is back again this season, working as operator for the Western Union at the depot. Mr. Morrill has, for the past few years, been employed at Conway Junction, N. H.

Pierce Lombard is employed in the baggage department at the depot, this season. Mr. Lombard, who has read law in the office of Hon. J. O. Bradbury, attended the Boston University law school, this winter. Pierce is quite handy at a variety of things, not the least of which is his ability to play the cornet.

Mr. E. C. McDonough, of Portland, has returned to the beach and can be found at his large and well stocked drug store on the Alberta promenade. Mr. McDonough is a pleasing and agreeable gentleman to meet and do business with, and it is no conundrum that customers always return after once visiting his store. The proprietor, the clerks, the soda and the entire establishment are all that could be desired.

Fred Googins, brother of "Polly" and formerly of Old Orchard, recently came on a short visit to relatives and friends here. He has returned to Somerville, where for several years he has been a most efficient patrolman.

The summer schedule of time on the B. & M. R. R. went into effect Monday, June 25, and now we have trains galore, going and coming almost without interruption. But quick and frequent service is what we want, for this fin de siecle age is very rapid.

Miss Aimee Mason and her mother, formerly of Newport, R. I., returned this spring to remain for the summer with Miss M. C. Ricker, at the Hatch House. Mrs. Mason and daughter were in Boston during the winter, where the young lady pursued a course in elocution, in which study she shows marked talent. She will return to Boston in October and resume her studies.

John L. Scamman, who had the news stand in the station last year, has removed to the Leavitt block on Old Orchard street. Mr. Scamman has a nice and well stocked store, and would be pleased to meet all of his old customers and a great many new. His ad in the MIRROR tells what he sells.

It does not seem like the real Old Orchard until the dummy train puts in its appearance. It is a great little road, and is a most beautiful ride along the shore and through the beautiful country to the mouth of the historic Saco river, which rises just below the Crawford House in the White mountains.

The Abbott opened Friday, June 24, and will again this season be under the careful management of Misses Louise and Sarah Abbott. They have, in addition to the Abbott, acquired the adjoining property, formerly the Leavitt House. This is a commodious house and will be used for roomers in connection with the Abbott. Mrs. Maria H. Mason will have charge of the house.

Horgan & Abbott, the well known Portland pharmacists, have opened a branch store in the Day building on the railroad walk. This firm is well known for its large prescription business, of which it makes a specialty. Mr. Horgan says that he intends to continue the store here during the winter, believing, as we do, that there is certainly a demand for a drug store here at that time.

Given's orchestra, consisting of twelve pieces, Fred A. Given, of Portland, musical director, arrived Saturday, and gave their first concert on the pier last Sunday afternoon.

Baggage Master Johnson gives the following figures that he has kept for June, '99 and '00. Number of pieces of baggage for June, '99, 1,636; number for June, '00, 1,763; making a gain this year of 127.

Miss Ella Leavitt, who passed the winter in Boston, has returned, as has been her custom, to pass the summer months at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. W. Leavitt.

Miss Lillian Carllsmitli, the noted and talented singer, is at Old Orchard for the summer vacation, visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley G. Smith, at their beautiful home "The Terraces," located on the sea wall.

We intend to keep our readers thoroughly advised of all the good things to be obtained in the way of short trips of a pleasant and profitable nature, and in every other way cater to the full enjoyment of the summer visitor within our gates. Read the MIRROR regularly and you will find everything that a really up-to-date tourist wants.

Snap Shots from Ocean Park

The shriek of the surf-hopper already rends the air and it is difficult for dwellers upon the sea wall to decide whether the bathers are being drowned or are simply having a "perfectly elegant time."

The Fourth is not particularly explosive over here. The sometimes alarming combination of fire-cracker and small boy is not wanting, but the celebrations are rather gastronomic than pyrotechnic, consisting chiefly of special dinners and extra ice creams. Fireworks at night, of course.

Guests are beginning to arrive at the hotels. Curtis Home has opened its hospitable doors. Cottages are rapidly filling. With the possible exception of last year, there are more people on the grounds than ever before so early in the season. Mr. Demeritte is busy delivering groceries, and Blake Industrial furnishing cooked food to satisfy seaside appetites.

Summer loves are supposed to be swiftly chilled by winter frosts, but there is a widespread belief that matches made at Ocean Park were previously arranged in Heaven. This idea became fixed in the early days, when two young men entered the Temple during a service and a young woman was speaking upon the platform. One young man turned to the other and said seriously— referring to the unknown girl—"that is my future wife!" It proved to be true and—"they lived happy ever after."

Right here it seems apropos to speak of a very pleasant wedding which took place at the summer home of the bride on Randall Avenue, Thursday, June 28. Miss Clara ArCelia Perkins and Mr. Charles Frank Jordan, both of Boston, were married on that day, Rev. Charles Perkins performing the ceremony. Mr. Jordan is at the head of a department of Jordan and Marsh, and Miss Perkins was matron of the Home of the Children's Friend.

Well-known educators are always in evidence at Ocean Park. President Mosher of Hillsdale College, Mich., and his family are expected to open their cottage on the sea wall today. Mrs. Mosher is also a professor in the college. Professor Priest, Dean of St. Lawrence Aniversity, N. Y., is in Mrs. Brown's cottage on the beach. Professor McDonald, President of Storer College, West Virginia, Miss M. Jennie Baker, principal of the Domestic Science Department of the same college, and Miss Bessie Mosher, teacher in Henniker, N. H., are in Miss Baker's cottage in the grove. Prof. H. B. Davis of Wilbraham, academy, Mass., and family have come for the season. Prof. Davis is superintendent of the Ocean Park Chautauqua Assembly. He will be at the Billow House for the season.

Miss Staples superintendent of the Young Women's Home, Lewiston, is in Prof. Hayes' cottage with a party of young girls who could not have such an outing were it not for her kindness and that of other Lewiston ladies. They came provided with cooked food, but many persons have wished to help give them a happy time, so garden stuff, fruit and other things have been added to their store. Mrs. Kendrie invited them to dine at the Granite State one day, and one afternoon they were entertained with an exhibition of India costumes and curios at the sanctum of the Missionary Helper.

Ex-Mayor Drew and party, of Lewiston, are at Miss Lord's cottage on the sea wall. Rev. and Miss Wilson of Lowell, Mass., are opening their new cottage. Several new cottages have been opened this season. Other summer houses have been added to or beautified. More attention is paid to making the lawns attractive. Ex-Mayor Milliken of Augusta has an especially attractive lawn, with a profusion of flowers, about his "Tanglewood" cottage. It is a delight to have the summer folk take so much pleasure and pride in making the Park a place of beauty.

This is a happy hunting ground for botanist and bird lover. Guild Park yields many varieties of plant and blossom, among them several kinds of orchids, Indian pipe, and other quaint flowers. The hermit-thrush spills his sweet notes on the sunset air, the whippoor-will calls at night, and the dawn brings a tangle of delicious sounds. This is a good place to study or rest, or have a good time.

By the way, some people expect to sit still and have a "good time" come to them. At Ocean Park, or anywhere else, it is well to find out first of all what there is to see, and then see it at our leisure; what there is to do, and do it; who there is whom we would like to meet, and attend those social gatherings where they may be found; to attend the Sunday services, and occasionally to "loaf and invite our souls." Such a program faithfully followed will inevitably bring a good time.

Brilliant Social Event At the Old Orchard House

A charity whist party and dance for the benefit of the Old Ladies' Home Association of Old Orchard was given at the Old Orchard House Friday evening, June 29th, and proved to be one of the most pleasant and successful social events that has been held here for a long time.

The Old Orchard ladies certainly do understand how to manage these affairs, and they always attain a high standard of excellence.

This event was under the direction and able management of Mrs. H. W. Staples, Mrs. F. J. Dennett, Mrs. W. G. Smith, Mrs. R. A. Googins, the Misses Abbott, Mrs. H. H. Thomas, Mrs. E. H. Milliken, Mrs. E. C. McAllister, Mrs. W. J. C. Milliken, Miss Elizabeth Kelsea, Miss Leah Moses and Miss A. R. Brackett. These ladies worked industriously to make a financial and social success of the affair, and they are to be congratulated on the happy result.

The large office, dance hall and parlors were open wide for the enjoyment of those present, and every one took advantage of the opportunity to have a pleasant time. The rooms were decorated with a profusion of flowers, and presented a charming appearance. The entire entertainment was satisfactory from every standpoint.

In the spacious east parlor several games of whist were in progress during the evening for those who were not inclined to dance.

The large dance hall was just comfortably crowded, and the floor was simply superb. Excellent music was furnished by an orchestra composed of F. Glenn Harmon, violin, Perry Rombard, cornet, and H. T. Googins, piano.

Dancing continued until 12 o'clock.

Mr. Dixon, being introduced by Frank H. Colley Esq, rendered some humorous selections.

Refreshments consisting of ices and cake were served.

There were many people present from Saco and Biddeford, who returned on special electrics at midnight. There were also many present from other towns and cities. It was difficult to obtain the names of all who were present but it is safe to put the number at 175. It is impossible to minutely describe the appearance of all the ladies present, but there were many striking and handsome gowns. Among the most elaborate toilettes were those of Miss Rillian Carllsmith, Miss Katherine Moses, Miss Mollie Cole, Saco; Miss Maud Simpson, Portland, Miss Annie Westman, Rancaster, Mass, Mrs. H. W. Staples, Mrs. W. J. C. Milliken, Mrs. E. C. McAllister Miss Reah Moses, M. C. Ricker, Aimee Mason and A. R. Brackett.

Personal Mention

J. M. Whitman is driver of the American Express wagon.

A. M. Roberts, of South Berwick, is assistant baggage master at the depot, this season.

Miss Hattie Higgins is again in her accustomed place, clerking at Mrs. W. E. Leavitt's souvenir store.

Cutter Perkins is employed by American Express Agent H. T. Googins as his assistant in the office.

Mr. William Nichols and family of Brooklyn, N. Y., have returned, and are at their cottage on Camp Comfort avenue.

Mrs. Stephen G. Dorman and her daughter, Nora, are at their handsome residence on Union avenue, near Googins' Rocks.

Mrs. E. J. Hubbard has had constructed a building on Washington avenue, containing a roomy store on the first floor, and tenement above.

Mrs. S. D. Moulton, for many years the able manager of the Atlantic House, has built a pretty residence, just off Washington avenue, and opposite the new Methodist church.

Miss Annie Westman of Lancaster, Mass., and Mr. Percy Parsons, who has been a student at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Ct., have been visiting Miss Angie L. Brackett, at her beautiful home on Camp Comfort avenue.

Miss Ida F. Porter, who for many years has been a valued teacher in the primary department of the Biddeford schools, and her friend, Miss Helen S. Carleton, a teacher of Lynn, Mass., are stopping at Miss Porter's cottage on the sea wall, beyond Mrs. Greene's residence.

Miss Drusilla Haines, who was employed as bookkeeper in Boston during the winter, has returned to her home here for the summer, and has resumed her position as bookkeeper at F. H. Libby's store.

Miss Emma Haines, formerly a very popular teacher in the Old Orchard schools, is at the home of her father, John Haines, on Washington avenue, for the summer vacation, after having completed a very successful year's work as a teacher in the grammar school at Sharon, Mass.

George Wolcott has returned to the beach, where he was a school boy a few years ago, and is employed at the depot news stand. Since his leaving Old Orchard about two years ago, he has traveled extensively in the west and southwest, having been as far south as Texas. He says that Old Orchard is as good as any place on the map.


The Old Orchard local publication for the season of 1900 will appear under the short, euphonious and fairly suggestive name, "THE MIRROR." We do not know, positively, why we selected this name. It might be that we have come in contact with some very bright people lately; or that we have a growing habit of gazing in the mirror, not, of course, to see how handsome we are, but to note, at frequent intervals, the changes which Father Time is making in our visages; or because we have come to associate many ideas with this article of utility. We trust that it will not require a very wide stretch of the imagination to find something suggestive or appropriate in the name.

The publishers, believing that a summer paper at Old Orchard is a necessity, have entered upon this enterprise with the best intentions and the largest charity toward everyone, with the purpose in view of giving a clean and worthy paper which shall be an advocate of Old Orchard, true to the interests of its people, and such as will reflect the life, the incidents, the events, pertinent to this famous seaside resort.

We do not anticipate such good fortune as to be able to please every individual atom ; but, if we can merit the approval and support of the most charitable critics, and those disposed to judge our efforts in a spirit of generosity, making due allowance for our shortcomings we shall feel amply compensated for our trouble. A paper requires the support of public opinion, and the co-operation of its constituency. To secure this, it must be bright, interesting and worthy. It will be our constant aim and purpose to make THE MIRROR meet these requirements.

Among Our Friends

In this end-of-the-century age, with all its progress and the multiform methods of reaching the people. among the foremost developments is skill in advertising, which, verily, has become a fine art. Competition has become so sharp, and our society is so complex and diversified, that in the business world those who would enter the lists and keep pace with modern methods are compelled to give publicity to their business in order to secure the patronage of the public.

In respect to Old Orchard, the fact is that there are many people visiting here each year, for a longer or shorter period, who are strangers, unacquainted with the hotels and boarding houses, their size, location, rates, et cetera, and with the various places of business and amusement; in fact, they are ignorant of a multitude of things which they desire to know. Naturally, they turn to the local paper as the fountain-head of these various kinds of information.

A reference to our advertising columns will satisfy anyone that we have been liberally dealt with by our home people, which is, in itself, a substantial endorsement, of which we are justly proud, but we have found out, by experience, that it is as hard to convince some people of the benefits of advertising as it is to squeeze a yolk out of a china egg.

We wish to say to those who have assisted us by their patronage that we shall endeavor to assist them, also. We feel that our advertisers advertisers have shown public spirit in supporting THE MIRROR, and we believe they will reap an abundant harvest before the summer is over. They are of the best class, and we feel perfectly safe in assuring our readers that a visit to them will be met with great courtesy and most honorable dealing.

THE MIRROR desires to announce its intention of gathering news items from Ocean Park during this season, and publishing the same in a portion of the paper which shall be devoted to such matter. This may be an innovation, as we believe that such arrangement has not been made in relation to publications issued, heretofore, at Old Orchard, but we feel that it is deserved.

With its very notable development during the past few years, its summer schools, and Chautauqua Assembly, its religious organization, together with the high intellectual and literary prominence of the place, made so by the annual convention of men and women, eminent in religious, professional and literary pursuits, this Chautauqua-by-the-Sea is certainly a distinguished locality, and it is our purpose to give suitable recognition to it.

Concert on the Pier

On Sunday, July 1, the opening concert at the pier casino was given by the Mead Amusement Company, of Boston, assisted by Given's orchestra, Fred A. Given, director.

The program follows:

  • Overture—"In Gay New York," Kirker Given's Orchestra.
  • Grand Introduction of Minstrels, "The Ensemble," from "The Runaway Girl."
  • Song—"By the Suawnee River She Is at Rest," Clarence Prouty.
  • Original Recitation, G. Robert Donaldson.
  • Concert Piece—"Little Kinkies," Orchestra. Bendix
  • "The Blue and Gray," Andrew Brown.
  • Original Song—"The Sewing Machine," James Smith.
  • Concert Waltz—"The Fortune Teller," Orchestra. Peters
  • Song—"Love Will Find a Way," Charles Murphy.
  • Original Parodies, Williams & Lyons.
  • Medley Selection—"The Pacemaker," DeWitt
  • Selection, The Cosmopolitan Quartet.
  • Grand Finale—"The Absent Minded Beggar," Rudyard Kipling and Sir Arthur Sullivan's latest success.

There was a good attendance, both afternoon and evening, and very satisfactory to the management.

The Mead Amusement Company is an extensive theatrical combination, this theatre being number 23 in their circuit. Mr. Mead states that he regards this as the best summer theatre on his list.

The Brooks Party At the Old Orchard House

The arrival of the Brooks Party is one of the first and foremost events at the opening of the season. They arrived Monday on the afternoon train from Boston and are registered at the Old Orchard House where they have stopped for several years. This party is quite an historic organization.

Eighteen years ago Mr. and Mrs. P. H. M. Brooks of Springfield, Mass., originated the plan and made up the first party for Old Orchard, and they have been coming annually since that time, remaining for a period of two weeks. Mr, Brooks is the highest civil officer in the U. S. armory in Springfield.

Originally the members came entirely from Springfield, but of late residents of other Massachusetts towns and some from other states have been admitted. Mrs. Brooks has the party in charge.

This year the party was divided, about one hundred coming here and an equal number going to Block Island and Narragansett Pier, while last year the entire party of over two hundred came to Old Orchard.

A list of the names of the members of the party will be found in the Old Orchard House arrivals.

This party is a jolly crowd, away on a good time and they start the social life at Old Orchard, enjoying the surf bathing, getting up buckboard rides, bowling parties and holding nightly hops at the hotel.

It makes an early boom in the season to have the Brooks Party come annually and start the ball; we hope that they will continue to come in the future.

The Methodist Church

At the new Methodist Episcopal church, built last fall, with funds raised by popular subscription, there is a large assemblage of worshipers every Sunday, and the seating capacity of the building is taxed to its utmost.

Services will be held at this church every Sunday during the season, with possibly a few exceptions, but these meetings will not conflict with the other meetings on the campground.

Rev. Howard Clifford, the pastor of the church, who worked with so much energy and success to build this church, is a very gifted and eloquent preacher. He is a man of scholarly attainments, broad views of life and varied practical experience. Last Sunday he delivered a most helpful and beautiful sermon from Revelations 3: 20. The church was crowded with regular attendants and visitors.
