One would natmrally have supposed that the op- ponents of this \addition\ plan would Th e Old Fftrk Ornamen t wil l Mow Hav e a <hanc o t o Aasert XtneK. When our public pari: in the centre of the village was graded up and made a thing of beauty through the efforts of the Village Improvement Society, dur- ing the summer of ,1898, it was decided to erect a fountain in the centre of the grounds, to add the cooling sp^ay of splashing watera to the sylvan beauty of the scene. - So a big iron fountain, severely plain and substantial, was pro- cured at an outlay of some hundreds of dollars, and was duly erected and supplied with aqha pnra from the to determine how the Toots oE Canton's i water mains. All had gone merrily 80 _' Tuesday evening and trialu were made quartet of three-Story buildings could best be mounted by its aid. It was not long enough to reaob to the -top of the battlement on Miner block or to the roof of the Conkey & Gulley block nejtf west oii Main street. Extended to its full length, however, it would just reach to be out in full force todefeat it, but they | - Q ^^ bniMingi failed to come to the polls. The -ad- dition\ scheme was a sort of a compro- mise measure, anyway; not entirely BatiBf actory to the board of education, who would probably have favored » L^.^ ow tha r00 f of the St. Law- primary building in the Miner street the St. Lawrence Bank block. In case, therefore, that it becomes necessary to mount the roof of Miner block or the Conkey & Gulley block, they must be quarter of the town, and not satisfactory to the opposition, who would have liked to see a separate naw building on the Union School grounds. As this scheme was probably the only one that stood a chance of being adopted, and as the need of ad litional facilities was urgent. the measure was evidently tacitly acqui- esced in by all factions, as the only way out of the difficulty. I The special meeting of Thursday even- ; img last was held pursuant to the f ol-' lowing notice, published in this paper • an d i n ou r loca l contemporary : '. Notic e i s hereb y give n pursuan t t o | statute , that a specia l schoo l distric t meetin g wil l b e hel d i n arid fo r Union ; Fre e Schoo l Distric t Number One , o f th e town of Canton , New York, a t th e ! schoo l buildin g i n sai d district , o n the | 118th da y of July , 189r>, a t ~ o'clock in renc e Ban k building . The only remain - ' in g three-stor y buildin g in th e busines s par t o f the town i s th e Haven House, and it was found by experiment with the extension ladder that the only way . to reach its main roof was via the roof 1 of the rear -annex, which could be far, but when the Water was turned on the trouble commenced. Whenever, under the influence of an unlimited supply of drink, the fountain got into a squirtive mood, a half-grown deluge inundated the park, for the largest basin was only about 15 feet in dia- meter and the height of the stream! when the fountain'was feeling well was | about twenty feet. As a consequence, 1 we had a nice dry iron ornament out in • the middle of the lawn most of tbe time,, for if .the wind blew the water had. to t be turned off so that the descending', shower wouldn't wash away the face of i natur%in the surrounding park. Major D. M. Robertson, under whose' direction the improvements on the park; were made, and several other members i of the Village Improvement Society,' Everybody Should Knoi That the latest novelties in Sterling Silverware eclipses anything ever before shown. To satisfy yourself of this all that is necessary is to ' examine the beautiful dis- play now made by J. F. Butler, scaled by means of the extension ladder. I were naturally much dissatisfied with ' All the three-story dwelling houses and other buildings in tbe village can be scale d easil y by means o f th e new ex - tensio n ladder , and now, i n cas e o f fire, the department knows exactly how. to \get there.\ The new extensio n ladder , togethe r with two ligh t singl e ladder s owned by th e department , ar e al l tha t ou r firemen need in the way of fire-scape apparatus in this two-story town; but they do need a truck , *o n which t o transpor t thei r the conduct of their three4mndred- dollar fountain, and looked about them for a remedy. They found that the old subscription paper for park improve- j ment showed a balance of $81 still un- j collected, and it was thought that with; this sum for a nest egg enough more: money could be collected to build a 1 large stone basin around the foot of the' fountain. The \peerless\ yellow marble | from the Canton Marble Company's i quarries, that was delivered for the new \ court house but never used, was pro-1 cured for the walls of the basin, and!

When the drives came down last spring the pressure of logs in the mill pond on the west side of the Island was too great for the old Bullis dam, and some forty feet of the eastern end of the old structure was swept down stream. The owners of the water privileges ap- pointed a committee some time ago to repair the broken dam, but there was a clash of interests and opinions and noth- ing so far has been done. Some of the parties interested want to remove what remains of the old dam and build an en- tirely new structure, while others think , this would be a useless expense. As there is a difference of opinion among the owners and users of the water priv- • ileges, as to how much each should pay toward the woik of reconstruction, the ; committee refuses to let the contract I until the money ia. forthcoming. The I interested parties will do well to stop ' quarreling erelong and go to work, as 1 their dam should' be finished before the heavy fall ranis set in. It 19 better to ' have any kind of a dam than to have a 1 dam quarrel. GONE TO HER REWARD. Death of th e YeneraUle O'DHHCOII. at Ht. Mnry Mrs. Abigail 4 HeeUiry.

During all these years all political patties have had the free use of- the cannon alike, and its voic e has bee n hear d i n many towns and in fac t al l ove r the county . Mr .

Canton needs a cannon. A town without a cannon is very much in the position of a boy withont a drum—it may be happy, but can't express its joy worth & cent. The war department don't wanit the old cannon, but itwduia take a epeeial act of oongresB to donate or sell the old howitzer to Canton. So the thing for our village fathers to do is to assume the bond and responsibility which Mr. Packard baa so long held, and take the old gun off his Tiands.

There is a young lady residing out on the Old DeKalb road who can discount anything in the way of leap-fpr-life business ever seen in Ringling's rings, and Saturday she gave a little exhibition of her abilities as a vaulter, on Hodskm street. About five o'clock that afternoon Nate Rawson, who lives out on the State road, drove up to tbe office or Butterfield's sheds, with a horse and a home-made sort of a buggy. In the carriage was Miss Maggie Smith. Jeremia h was standin g \on th e Nationa l Bank corner, leaning upon a pitchfork. Near him lounged his son-in-law, Weary Gib Graham. A Morley man named Mose Brown got into some words with Gib, when Jeremiah interferred, saying \I'll take care of him for you, Gib.\ and struck Moses over the head with the pitch fork. He didn't get any farther with his job of taking car e o f tbe Morleyite , however . I n fac t he -was unabl e to tak e car e o f himself , an d th e man fro m Morle y lent a help - ing hand. That hand caught Jeremia h just under the left ear and again under the left eye.
