An beam had smashed her solid door, passed through her room, through the dining room and crashed into the fram e o f the guest room , broken doors, chair, and an enorm ous amount of de­ bris follow ing it. The wind that had hurled these things into the house had to have a way out and wrenched one side o f our back door off, so that it had full sway after that. I thought that part of the house had collapsed. Had we known that those beams and other lumber had been part of our chicken roo^t which had been m ore than 300 ft. to the east of our house, we would not have had to be quite so fearful but we did not know that. At the same time one of our heavy porch Radio reception is often hin­ dered by bare electric wires scrubbing against trees. Gener­ ally such “ shorts” can be seen especially on rainy and windy nights sparking and burning the limbs. Through the efforts of the New York Central Electric Corp., the Municipal Board and Bush’s Mu­ sic and Radio House all these disturbing noises are being eliminated. Anyone noticing'wires burning or ^sparking in the trees will help in this effort to clear up radio reception in and around Penn Yan by notifying the elec­ tric light, companies or Bush’s Music and Radio House.

Every soul laced death from 1 o’clock till after day-break, probably 8 o’clock. Nearly all the houses 'went down. The few that are standing are badly damaged. Around Santa Fe Mrs. Felton’s house seems least damaged and ours next. Fortun­ ately only one life was lost in Santa Fe, a little Hungarian girl, daughter of the cornet player. The entire col­ ored and Cuban section of Santa Fe was down within twenty minutes after the beginning of the storm, which left hundreds homeless, exposed to the terrible driving rain and wind, such as I never dreamed possible, but worst of all, the debris nvas flying everywhere, trees, enormous branches, tiling from roofs, beams of every size, so that no one knew when they would be struck. Tuesday, the 19tli, the government sent warning to the Isle of Pines by radio that a hurricane was raging 200 miles south of us and, unless it chang­ ed its course, would reach us in the afternoon. At noon the weather got real bad and the telephone operator advised every one she could reach, kept getting 'worse and as for some reason we could not get the mill on - the telephone any more, Edgar started 1 come in at the back door, which out to tell them to shut down so that |had been blown off. They had tied no fire could start, but he was forced Anderson and the two grandchild- to return as he feared that by the time jren *° *rees 80 that they could not be he could get back the river would be l^town away. We told them to get above our last high bridge, and pos-jtkem during the lull, which they did. i The American Consul asked Edgar ;and Mr. Manent of Gerona to go to ! Batabano and Havana officially, in i the name of the American Govern- jment. I guess, and they have not come [back yet. They left yesterday, Satur- place .for wind to get in. About 11:30 ‘ day» at noon on a Cuban gun boat we woke up; the storm had increased, j wliicli had come in in the morning. We nailed up the back window of the !

If the house had collapsed we would have been in a sort of a trap as there is no outside door from the bath-room and the 'win­ dows are too small and high for any­ one to crawl through. We could do nothing but pray for our lives and for the lives of our, friends and we have much to thank God for, as he heard our prayer. None of us even hurt and all our friends here survived, at least with their lives. The hurricane was in two sections; it blew with tremendous force in ter­ rible gusts that, I thought, no house could withstand, from about 1 to 3 o’clock. Then there 'was a lull for about an hour. From about 4 to 6 o’clock the storm blew directly from the west, aliwest as severe as the storm from the east a short time be­ fore. During the lull of the storm the Anderson’s, colored people living a quarter mile beyond us, came rushing, It Icalling, “ Bullock, Bullock.” Even then the wind howled so that they could not hear Edgar answering telling the sibly take the bridge, so that he would not be able to get home. Then we closed, bolted and barred the garage doors and all the solid, wooden doors and blinds of the house and kitchen so that there was not a STMT WORK ON NEW PENN TAN DIRECTORY The Ladies’ Aid Society , The Ladies’ Aid Society o f the Dan- 'ie(i St. Paul Lutherian church will Experienced Sales Force Coming Survey For Complete Record of City Residents and Business hold their annual bazar and chicken supper at the church basement Nov. to j 20, from 5:30 p. m. until all are served. ------- — ♦ -------------- To Present “ Mikado” i The H.

EENT0N FARMER HAS SHOT 1010 66 CHUCKS ss Lee Edmonds With Help of Sons Has Killed Record Number of Wood­ chucks in Past Few Years Lee Edmunds, a well-known citizen in Benton, during the.past year and so far into the present year, has shot 1010 woodchucks. In the past eight or ten years he has usually killed from two to three hundred each twelve months; In this he lias usually been assisted by one or both of his sons, Stewart land Robert, and it has been a recre- iation for them while at the same time they hate helped to rid the county of what has become a grave pest. Mr. Edmunds and his boys have -no set time for doing this work nor are they confined to any particular locality. Whenever the spirit moves them to I hunt they set forth in whatever direc- ! lion their business or their fancy On Friday evening, Novi 12, a hearing was held before the village trustees on the charges preferred against Fred H. Lynn in proceedings to remove him for misconduct as a member of the municipal board of this village. Mr. Lynn did not: ap­ pear in person or by' attorney to answer the chargds which had been made against him by the four other members of the board, but sent a long communication in writing, in an attempt to- justify his conduct. A large amount of testimony was taken in support of the charges against Mr. Lynn, and was particularly directed to the charge that Mr. Lynn is al­ leged to have received funds of the village amounting to about $1,500. unlawfully, since the year 1914, by orders signed by himself as president of the municipal board for services claimed to have been rendered by him, in spite of the fact that the law prohibits members of the municipal board from receiving compensation for their services. Orders signed by Mr. Lynn, vouchers, books and other papers were put in Evidence before the Roiard of Trustees in proof of this particular charge. Evidence was also given that Mr. Lynn had ceased to act as a member of the. board and had failed to at­ tend six meetings of the board held since June 1st, 1926, and that he had pursued a line of conduct detri­ mental to the best interests of the village, and had put various obstacles in the way of the board carrying out its general policy of betterment and improvement of the municipal plant, and many specific instances of such acts were testified to by the various witnesses who were sworn and ex­ amined. The taking of testimony was concluded and the hearing closed, but inasmuch as the testimony was taken by ak stenographer and will require several days to transcribe, the trustees adjourned to Saturday, Nov. 20, at 3 o’clock, when they will render their decision. It is quite# probable that an action will be brought against Mr. Lynn to recover the amount which it is al­ leged he has drawn from the village treasury, unlawfully, under the pre­ text of receiving compensation for his services which it is alleged wa§ contrary to law and constitutes mis­ appropriation of funds of the village. Notice of Charges Sent Mr. Lynn To Fred H. Lynn: You will please-take notice, that charges have been preferred -against you as a member of the Municipal Board of the Village of .Penn Yan by H. A. Wagener, E. J. Walker, Jr., F. M. McNiff and Charles A. Kelly, asking that you be removed from office by the Board of Trustees, -a copy of said charges are hereto annexed and serv­ ed upon you, .and also a copy of the resolution of the Board of Trustees based thereon, -passed at -a regular meeting of said Board held on -the 1st day of November, 1926, and You will further take notice, that you are required to answer said charges before said Board of Trustees at a meeting of said Board to ibe held on the 12th day of November, 1926. in the Trustees' Rooms, in Maiden Lane in said village of Penn Yan at 7 o’clock P. M., and that a hearing will then be had upon said charges. November 3rd, 1926. A Dodge sedan owned Randall, of Penn Yan, and the barn of the Ketchum on Flat Street, Oct. 2, 1925, was re­ covered from the sand bank on the Frank Collin farm, just west of Ben­ ton Center, early Sunday, after it had been discovered by hunters Friday aft­ ernoon. The car had apparently been buried in the sand for some 13 months. It was covered with two sheets of can­ vas and the windshield was protected against the pressure of the sand by pieces of floor-board from the car, as if those who backed the car into the sand pit intended to remove it at some future date. Walter On* and Howard Rolfe, of Benton while hunting Friday afternoon were walking over the sand bank, which is now owned by Everet Rolfe, when one of them dropped into a sus­ picious hole, which upon investiga­ tion turned out to be a cavity between the rear of the isedan top and the solid bank of sand. Saturday night about 12 b'clock, ac­ cording to Sheriff Milton Rapalee, the hunters notified him of their discovery. Sunday morning the under-sheriff and a deputy with a gang of men tackled the job of shoveling out the auto. After much hard work and .with the help of a wrecking car they pulled from the pit a 1924 model sedan, the top and upholstery of which were bad­ ly rotted since the two pieces of can­ vas spread over it were not sufficient to protect it for over a year. The bat tery had been removed, but the 1925 license plates and the driver’s license certificate in the car made identifica­ tion or the owner easy. The speedo­ meter registered 16,461 miles, after it had been towed to the sheriff’s barn in this village. Charles Randall purchased the car on Nov. 14, 1923, from Ed. Geer, of Penn Yan. For a time Mr. Randall used it in the taxi business. After the car was reported stolen, some $800 was paid the owner for his loss, after every effort to locate it had failed. What remains of the car now, there fore belongs to the insurance com­ pany rather than to Mr. Randall. A curious coincidence in the case is that the auto was uncovered at the' sand pit exactly three years from the day it was purchased in Penn Yan. ------------------ — + — i » . . f i .»■ ■ - ■ * . __ 0 . - f . - t . . t __ A A A J . . f . - t .

Realizing the need of a place for community gatherings, a house and lot adjacent to the church property was bought and used for that pur­ pose. The building proved unsuit­ able so it was decided to sell ahd erect a building especially adapted to community needs. This new1 hall is a firy proof struc­ ture with a seating capacity of about 300. It has a well equipped stage, kitchen and cloak room on the main floor. The building is well ventilated and electrically lighted. Parking places for some 200 cars will be pro­ vided.
