B ig T itle Com p a n y Appoints L o c a l Representatives The New York Title and Mortgage Company, the largest title company in the world, having capital fund's of over thirty million dollars, has concluded negotiations and appointed Hon. Gil­ bert H. Baker as its local counsel in Yates county for title insurance. Simon C. Noot, field representative of the New York Company, has been in Penn Yan this week, malting the final agreements. In a discussion of title insurance, he said in part: “ The New York Title and Mortgage Com­ pany is the only company that is de­ veloping title insurance on a national scale, comparable in many respects with the expansion of liability insur­ ance. “Title insurance has, in large me­ tropolitan districts, become a stand­ ard real estate practice, and it is rare­ ly that any transaction affecting real estate is consummated without this pro­ tection. The marked real estate activ­ ity throughout the country has done much to bring title insurance into wide use by developers, mortgage com­ panies, realtors and land owners. The New York Title and Mortgage Com­ pany, has received many applications for title insurance throughout the state, and recognizing the demand, has taken steps to put title insurance with­ in reach of all, and during the past year the increase in the issuance of title insurance policies has been 90.7 per cent. “ It is believed that with the appoint­ ment of Judge Baker, the great need for guaranteed titles in selling real es­ tate in Yates county will be met. It is quite true that throughout the state, people have bought property without thoroughly investigating the title, fre­ quently to their sorrow. “ Title insurance begins where the abstract leaves off, and makes it pos: sible for the owner to pass on to the prospective purchaser the confidence which the property owner has in the title itself. Many property owners be­ lieve that after they have obtained an abstract of title and a lawyer's coun­ sel, there will be no uncertainty to the title. Yet after all this has been done and every knoAvn test applied, there is still a margin of uncertainty. An abstract is the history of the title and not a guaranteed title. Title in­ surance will correct any defect and will guarantee the owner against for­ geries, false representations, frauds, lost deeds, lost wills, undisclosed heirs, mistakes by law, misrepresenta­ tion of facts, defective acknowledge­ ments, after-born children, liens omit­ ted from searches, defective partition suits, mistakes in description, illegal trusts, undisclosed restrictions, copy­ ist’s errors, defective foreclosures, dower claims and the validity of mort­ gages and assignments. Unlike other insurance the sense of security of title policy affords is obtained for the payment of but one premium. Through the National Title Insurance Depart­ ment of the New York Title and Mort­ gage Company, titles are insured everywhere in the United States. In my work I find that one of the things that the average man is not familiar with is the importance of guaranteed title to the property he owns, and just what procedure to take in getting a guaranteed title. Nevertheless, it is rapidly becoming known through the country that it is the most important that property owners be protected by title insurance.” * Milfred Werley, a former resident ot Hall and now a student at. Cornell Uni versify, has been chosen captain of the cross country track team of that institution. On Thursday of next week he sails with the team for England where the Cornell harriers will com pete with the combined Oxford and Cambridge cross country team. ♦ ♦ * Three showers 'were held in Penn Yan last week in honor of Miss Marie Swarthout, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Swarthout, of Vine Valley, whose marriage to Albert Bolles, of Belfast, N.

Buckley is spending some time in New York City, where she has been attending the commence ment exercises at her alma mater, the College of Mount St. Vincent, these concluding with the senior dance a* the Hotel Plaza, and a reunion dinner of her class at the Brevoort, a week ago.

At the banquet in the evening there were 150 present. Dr. Summerbell was the principal speaker at the af fair.

According to the faded writing in ink on the inside of the cover it was used in school by Joseph Playsted in 1614 and later by a Daniel Rowland, related to Mr. Plaisted on his grandmother’s side, in 1787. Mr. Plaisted said that his family came from England to this country in 1828 when his grandfather, John Playsted, settled in Milo. The family in Eng­ land was of considerable repute, own­ ing the castle from which Charles I tried to escape his executors by jump­ ing out of a window. How the book got to this counft-y is not known. Charles Shaw gave Mr. Plaisted the book several years ago, before his death, Mr. Shaw having purchased It at an auction in New York-Qity some ten years before ♦ The June meeting of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union was held at the home of Mrs. Cole, Clinton street, Friday, the 11th.
