H.-Enright carried #7,000 on his . - . stock, which inventoried at §10,«OQ. There Dr. J . B. Ifichols, one of * the oldest was no insurance on Ms household goods! dentist* in Northern New York, died at in flames. Quickly the alarm was given but the flames had gained too great a start to be subdued, with no facilities ex- cept pails and wells for fighting a blaze. The north-west wind was blowing gently or much more serious damage would have been done. Nothing was saved from the Sayles store or living apartments over- head,' Mrs. Sayles having only time to throw agolf cape over her shoulders and escape. The flames soon communicated with other buildings on both sidfe on the #rest- ern side of the street and cat a clean swatb to the corner on the south and to Clark's brick store on the north which was next to a little barber shop that men with ropes succeeded in hauling away. The build- ings consumed comprised the Say Fes drug tore, Bodge meat market, Manchester boot and shoe and feed store and Grand all's and Euright's general stores. The latter building was owned by A- L. Sayles and H. M. Stevens. Besides Mr. Sajles,Me<i3rs. En right, Manchester and Crandall resided over^hefr plaee§ of business. The brick hotel and hardware store of W. S. Law- rence, across the street was badly scorched and came dangerously near going up in smoke, together with Asbton 'Hall, Mr. Lawrence's handsome residence. All the m on the street side of the hardware eewas broken by the heat, the wood- work was blistered and the gable was several times ablaze, but the building was saved by a bucket brigade. Mr. Lawrence saved his house with a force pump by wfei&h he pumped water on the woodwork from his eistern. Some goods were saved from several of the stores and living rooms, but the total loss is estimated at $25,000, with insur- • his store furniture and fixtures. Some of the store furuiture and eome of the stock were saved. A. L. Sayles had $2,000 on his drug store building, $850 on stock and $000 on household goods. His stock is estimated f at about f 1,600. The loss was total. The stock of the Bodge meat mat kef was insured for $300. Nothing was saved. Manchester's store and oat buildings were insured for f2,800 and stock for$50O. The loss on stock-is estimated at $1,600- Crandall'a store was insured for f 1,500 and stock-lor $1,^K). The loss ^prac- tically total. ' The En right store building was insured fot$%O90. The damage to the Lawrence hotel and hardware store and stock, part Q£ which was hurt by moving, is fully covered by insurance. The goods were also moved from the Clark store and the damage is fully covered. The insurance was divided among the verai county agencies as follows: O'Neil Sc Hale^OQO; F. S. Channel!, $4,250: S. B. Skinner, $4,100: D. D. D. Dewey, $3^500; Mutual, $3,000. This is the third time within the mem- ory of the middle aged that there has bees a conflagration on the corner burned. Babcock's tin and hardware stores-was burned some 30 years or more ago near where the Eimgbt store stood, but the old white.hotel adjoining, though badly- blistered, was saved by covering the sides with blankets and keeping them soaked with water turned on by a pail brigade. Later the white hotel building was burn- ed, on the site of which severaLof the stores stood which were destroyed Wednes- day nigh& The village has never had any water supply adequate for fighting fire, though a plan of providing wells and cisterns and a band engine was discussed some time ago, but without results. It is probable that the burned section will be quickly rebuilt better than before. It is a good plan in small villages to build business houses with outside walls of brick and roofs of tin, leaving some space between the building* and providing the structures with iron shutters that can be closed in case of emergency.

A week or two ago we noted the fact that the widow of the late Christopher F. Norton had returned from Florida and was looking up her dower rights in thous- saods of acres of valuable laad-m Franklin, Clinton and Essex counties. Since then a large number of suite to determine, her rights have been** instituted and Sheriff Douglass alone, of thia county, has served ten or twelve complaints upon the present owners and holders of valuable tracts and properties in Franklin county. Numerous actions have also been started in Clinton. The late Christopher F. Norton owned at one time over 100,000 acres of Adiron- dack land. Much of it was then still un- improved and of nominal value. He was engaged in the lumber and iron business in the Saranac valley, and becoming bad- ly involved, lost his extensive holdings of land by sheriff sales and mortgage fore- closures in the *1Qa. Norton died in 188), and his widow, who in most of the cases did not sign the mortgages and performed no act to convey away her dower Interests, now comes forward to have those interests determined and for an accounting of the rents and profits which have accumulated on the several properties. The salts num- ber sixty or seventy in all, the lands hav- ing passed from hand to hand, and the most extensive litigation ever known hi this section seems likely to resnlt there- from. Foster, Kelly & Isenberg, of Troy, N. Y., are Mrs. Norton's attorneys and great haste was made to secure ser- vice of the papers starting the several pro- ceedings before the expiration of 20^years from the death of Mr. Norton, which oc- curred May 6th, 1880. The lands have since been wonderfully improved, some of our county's finest summer resorts having sprang np upon them. Immense sums have been Expended in hotels and manu- factories which now utilize the water privileges once owned by Norton* r A few^ days more would have barred Mrs. Norton from making her claim on account of the statute of limitations.

She demands that this be don«» and that one-third of all the rents and profits of the property since Mr. Norton's death be accounted for and paid toiler.r d his Lome in Potsdam May 6th.

The vil- lage fathers have purchased 30 gasolene lamps at $6 each, which the company guarantees to run as well in cold ~ &a in \warm weather.

An Indian by the name of Skin waa re- r, an employe of the Racket River Paper Co. 's big mill near Potsdam, caught the collar of his coat on a set screw in a revolving shaft early Wednesday morning and was carried around the shaft three or four times. He was adjusting a belt at the time and the shaft was turning slowly. It was stopped as quickly as possible, bat his arm was mutilated, his neck bruised and his cloth- ing stripped from his person. He died about 36 hours after the accident. After the cold weather that has prevailed in Northern New York thus far this spring a trip to New York and warmer weather is inviting.

Lee Van Wert; o r this village, who has been working for Babbitt & Co., of New York,and boarded at the home of a widow lady nat&ed Mrs. Gumbart, at No. 134 West 15th St., has been through a shock ing experience the past week. Another fellow named Roland Mason boarded at the same place, and, coming in late on Thursday night,or early Friday morning, he found Katie, the fouryear-^old : daugh- ter of Mrs. Gumbart, crying in the parlor in her night clothes. When asked what s the matter she said: \Mamma gave some bitter medicinetit made me sick; I spit it out\ -When asked where her mother was the child r&rinted to a bed room, and Mason, on entering the room, found her lying^on the floor partly dress- ed, dead. On the bed was the body of her daughter Annie, seven or eight years old. The woman had given the children poison and token it herself witb. suicidal intent. She had succeeded, except in the case of the younger child. Mason in great alarm awakened Van Wert, who was sleeping in the house and who ran to the street at once to summon medical help. He noti fled a policeman who summoned an am balance and a physician pronounced the motherland older daughter dead. Mason took the younger child to the hose of relatives OB West 32nd street and hurried to the W«rt 30th street police station and told of the tragedy. It was said at first that Mrs, Gumbart was a consumptive, had been warned that she could not live long and in her despair had done the fear- ful deed, but the,coroner's physician ex- amined tbe body and found no signs of consumption. Mason said he knew of no reason why she should have done such a y thing. Th tba$ Mason , paid the rent and passed as her husband. This be stoutly denied. That the act was premeditated is known from the #tory of-the older girl, told be- fore her death to the children of the street of how her mother had tried to hire her to take some medicine, which looked «% nasty taat efce would a 1 1 do it. The other children said they would and boy candy with the money. The thought of'the undoubtedly led her to consent to poteoa.

Hugh McGfill, of Chateaugay, met with a painful accident at his home a week ago while drawing stone. \'jThe team was drawing on a large rock when one of the inside tugs broke, allowing the whiffletree to fly back, striking and breaking Mr. MeGi]Ps.rigot leg just below the knee. Dr. Harrigan dressed the fractured limb. The funeral of Mr. Whby Koory, who died Monday morning at the home at his son, in Malone, will take place Wednes- day morning at 10 A. M. in St. Mark's Episcopal church. Rev. Ebrau Dibes; a priest of the Greek Church of Montreal, will have charge of the services, the deceased having been a member of tbe Greek Church. This probably is the first service of that denomination ever held in Malone or in this part of the state. Although the board of education has voted to re-engage Prof. Burritt for tbe ensuing year, he has not yet fully decided on his coarse, as intimated last week in one of the local papers. The people of Orange, N. J., have been looking to him as one of several candidates for a fine po- sition there, and last week he went to Utica to consult regarding the matter. He will not leave his pleasant school work here unless he secures a considerable raise in salary, and our people would regret ex- ceedingly to lose him, for he has been one of the most successful principals ever con- nected with Franklin Academy; but, his friends, of course, realize that if he can better himself materially he ought not to throw a \good thing\ over his shoulder. The Malone Opera Company, will pre- sent \ Erminie \ at Saracae Lake next Monday evening and tbe New York Cen- tral people are tbiafc^ng of putting on a special train to Saran&c Lake and return, leaving Malone Monday about o.OO P.

This will be done provided a sufficient number will sub- scribe before Friday noon for excursion tickets at fl.00ejac.Jbfor the round trip, good going anoTreturniag on the special .train. If it is decided not to do this, ex- cursion tickets will be sold at $1.25 each, good going on the mornfng train (10:30) Monday and returning on j the early morn- ing train leaving Sarana© Lake 5:40 A. M. Tuesday. The decision will be announced by the distribution of hand bills on Satni- urday. These rates do not include ad- mission to the opera. The talk of the town this week is Erminie,and lovers of music and the stage are looking forward to its presentation with happy expectancy. Mr. Vance has put life into the choruses and the young eople are sure to win approval. Miss food, of Potsdam, who takes the part of Erminie can sing (there is no doubt about it.) Her vocal scores are executed with remarkable ease and perfection and her voice is true and sweet. AH our people will want to hear her. Sayles and McGue make a capital pair of robbers, and the oth^r members of the cast are well adapted to their several parts and have all had ex- perience oa the stage.

But to show that he is contiaually ad- vancing, if possible for one -m skilled to improve on tbe bacjo, we quote the fol- lowing from the Cincinnati Tribune of last spring:—\Mr. Farland astonished his auditors with the most brilliant flights of virtuosity ever heard here on a stringed instrument.'- His reputation is as wide as the nation. The New Orleans Picayune *ays» **Fariand is a marvel,\ and the San Jfr&neised Examiner calls him \ the banjo's Ole Bull.'' These expressions are not overdrawn, for the world has never had such a ban joist.-. Those who have not heard him will not miss this ehance, and those who have will certainly want to hear him The time was when Arsenal Green was a beautiful velvety lawn, a pride to the village; but now the grass is worn, off in dozens of places and beaten paths like cow paths cross it in innumerable direc- tions, making it an eye-sore instead of a thing of beauty. This should be rem- edied. It is a poor advertisemeat to the town. Tbejhade is growing thick there and once apgrass is killed out it will be difficult ttfstart it again. It would not coela great deal to lay the necessary walks in the sod, re-seed that which is killed ont and trim up tbe trees, if neces- sary, enough %p make the grass grow. Signs should then be put up on short posts at frequent intervals where every- body can see them warning all to keep off the grass. It is, of course, a pleasure to walk and play on tire grass, but where an army indulge in it there is^Kkra no grassfWplay on. The part of the park reserved for base ball for the children should be the only part allowed to be used for play or.sports, including tennis* If tennis and grass are incompatible thea the base ball ground ought to be goodt enough for the sport. When the sign^ are ug the teachers of the Bates school can kefep the children in the space reserved for |hein, and other people will generally observe tbe signs when they see new grass coming up. The memory of the former beauty of the park, when its lawns were* cared-for, and the present condition are enough to warrant the change. Now is the time, before the extreme dry, hot weather, to attend to it. INrath of Jlltm Jennie Sheard. Miss Jennie E.
