The trustees of the M. E. society have, sold a portion of the church lot to George Britton, who will erect a house thereon. The creditors of the defunct Cole & Lockwood circus company, of Potsdam, will receive in all about forty cents on the dollar. Allen Williams, of Grantville, ex- hibited some onions of the \Yel- low Denver\ variety of which 36 made half a bushel. Who can beat this. The St. Lawrence Countryman, published at Ogdensburg, is the title of a new paper devoted to farmers. It is a monthly, and the second num- ber appeared this month. Albert Whiting, of Louisville, has just returned from Fort Wayne, Imt. where he purchased real estate to the value of $3,000. He reports apples and potatoes very scarce in that section, the latter selling at 65 cents per bushel. About twenty new houses are in process of construction at the present time. The majority of these are on the north side of Grasse river. These residences together with the two business blocks now heing erected, make business quite lively in that line. During these warm Indian summer evenings the villagers are enjoying numerous seranades by local talent. Mr. H. Mandeville acts as musical director and under his able instruc- tion the class has become so skilled that the townspeople are loath to re- tire until after the nocturnal concerts are over. Receiver VanVranken, of Potsdam and his attorney, Thomas Spratt. of Ogdensburg, purchased 30,000 acres of land for $20,000 at a mortgage foreclosure sale. The sale was bro't by the Third National Bank of New York city, against Luke Usher and others. It is one of the echoes of the recent bank failure at Potsdam. Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company will have constructed two - palace boats of 271 feet in length at a cost <Jl *250 000, to* run between Toronto and Prescott. Montreal and Tronto capitalists will enter the R. & O. directorate and a line of com- munication will be established from Buffalo to the Saguenay under one management. Wesley Brouse, at trustee of school district No. 11, town of Norfolk has appealed to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction from the de- cision bf School Commissioner W. E. Andrews in placing the John Brouse and Stephen Bush farms into school district No. 6. Mr. Brouse claims these two pieces of property right- fully belong in district No. 11. R. W. & O baggagemen and sta tion agents have received the follow- ing: \Hereafter when bicycles are presented for checking to which lamps, cyclometers, bells, tool bags or other articles are attached, you will please inform passengers present- ing the wheel that such articles must -be removed before checking, other- wise owner will be required to sign release of liability for any such at- tachments.\ The long dry spell has lowered the water in the streams having their aource on the western slope of the Adirondacks until at present there is scarcely water enough to cover the fishes. Most of the manufacturing plants along these rivers are com- pelled to use steam or shut down whole or part of the time. In this connection it is gratifying to note that the old St. Lawrence, which is to turn the myriad wheels of the future Massena,\ flows on forever with unabated force and volume. The big gongs placed by the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg railroads at city crossings in place of flagmen are not giving satisfaction. In Os- wego the common council has pro- tested against the bells as a nuisance and ordered their discontinuance. The company is putting them in at Ogdensburg, notwithstanding that Oswego dosen't like them. They are put on danger signs near crossings and when a train comes within a given distance the gong begins to ring hv electrical force and continues •to rin^ until the train has passed over the street. —F\. E. Everett has ordered an- other car load of pianos. Mrs. Ever- ett assisted in selecting them while in New York city recently. 2w Visitors and Visiting People lo Whom All Are Interested. B. M.

Only thirteen voters were present at the special school meeting held on Thursday evening the 21st inst. The meeting was called to order by clerk L. S. Dominy. L. C. Sutton was named as chair- man, G. W. Ball and A. B. Cook as tellers. President Allen Babcock explained the object of the meeting stating ihat it was proposed to raise $1,000 to be used in purchasing fuel, engaging a music teacher and for incidentals. The proposition was carried, twelve votes being cast in favor and one against. Miss Gertrude Erwin has been engaged as Music teacher thus making the faculty consist of ten teachers. NO CHANGE IN VOTING. Two Ways of Voting a Split Ticket as Heretofore. Attorney General Handcock has written an opinion stating that there is no change in the election law from last year, giving his opinion as to the intention of the law, which after say- ing that there is only one way to vote a split ticket, that is, to put a cross mark opposite the name of every candidate, gives instructions to election officeis to count ballots where the voter has put a cross mark in the circle at the top of his party column and then put cross marks opposite the names of candidates of other parties for whom he desired to vote. In that case the election officers are to count the ballot for all the candidates in the column at the top of which the voter put the cross, except those candidates for each of whose opponents the voter expressed a preference by putting a mark op- posite his name. The Attorney Gen. says that a split ticket can be voted by making a cross mark in the circle above the name of the party, some of whose candidates he desires to vote for, and also making cross marks before the name or names of bther candidates in other party columns for whom the elector wishes to vote. ii.n II . -.)
