At Akron, ()., Tuesday January 81st, Judge Kohler granted a bill of absolute divorce to Jessie R. imrie on the ground of cruelty. The wife is given the custody of the one child and alimony. Mrs. Imrie is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. II. Roulston of Canton and was married in 185)7. Today is St Valentine's Day. The birds are supposed to choose their mates on this day, and every nice young man of good principles selects the best valen- tine he can rind for his best girl, while the son of Belial does quite the contrary, and buys the worse comic valentines ho can for somebody he wishes to get even with. In any ease don't forget that spring is coming, in spite of the Candle- mas Bear who is supposed to be engaged in another nap of six weeks. Alexander O. Brodie, governor of Ari- zona, is a lineal descendant of Robert 3rd, ivfng of Scotland. His great uncle. Alexander (). Brodie, wan connected with thu Pierreponts and McCormicks who once owned .so much of Northern New York, and he himself was born in St. Lawrence county. He has one son, seven years old, who is alno named Alexander (). Brodie. Recently he furn- ished the Franklin County Historical Society, by request of Secretary Collins, with an abstract of his fumily tree and also with a portrait of the original Alexander 0. Bradie who figured in the history ofthis section. The special services at Grace church commenced with the holding of Holy Communion Saturday evening. There was a large attendance Sunday morn- ing, when Rev. L. E. Sanford preached upon the subject, \The Christian's God.\ The sermon was much appreciated, Litany was held at 4:80 in theafternoon by Rev. Mr. Sanford, after which he delivered a sermon on the subject, \The Soul and ItsTJeed of God.\ Sunday eveu- ing was held tho evening prayer service, after which Mr. Sanford preached on \Action and Reaction in the Spiritual Life.\ Much interest is manifested in the meetings, which are held under the aus- pices of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew. George MovehoiiHe, aged 28 a quarry - man, was seriously ami perhaps fatally injured in the quarry of the Adams-Duford Co. at Chaumont shortly after 1 Monday afternoon, lie wascngagvd in quarrying stone in an embankment when he dis- lodged a piece of frozen earth weighing about three tons, which fell on him, seri- ously injuring him. fie was picked up unconscious and removed to his home, where he was attended by Dr. LaFon- tuine. Hin chest was crushed in, and he was bleeding internally. He was also badly injured about the face and head. He has recovered consciousness. His father. I'\rank Morehouse, was badly in jured in the same quarry by dynamite I about six weeks ago. I The N. P. L Benefit held at Canton opora house Wednesday evening was a success in every way, and Jere. S. Ken- nedy, an old time favorite under whose direction the entertainment was put on proved that like old wine he improves with age. \The Mayor's Reception,\ wan tiie title bill but aside from this there were one or two good farces, and considerable specialty work by local and Sandstone City talont. Mr. Kennedy has the show bunineHH at his finger tips Find ought to do n good business in towns of Northern Now York whore wo understand he intends appearing with amaturo talent. Tho entertainment was ropoated Monday evening 'or the benefit of Mr. Konnedy and notwithstanding tho heavy storm was fairly well patron- iwd. i One of the attractions of the Jefferson ! county centennial just decided upon is an bid-fashioned fair on the grounds of the agricultural society where there will be a plowing match with ox teams, old- 1 fashioned horse races, games and exhib- I tions of agricultural implements. Pre- miums will be given for the oldest exam- ples of ancient sickles, forks, mowers, vehicles, etc. Old spinning wheels and carding machines will be shown in oper- ation in the old exhibition halt, the old- est hall of its kind in the State. Opposite will be shown every manner of modern agricultural machinery. The celebration will open June 19th. The centennial oration will be made by E. M. Barton, of Chicago, who is president of the Western Electric Co. and a millionaire. He is a native of Adams. An effort is be- ing made to arrange for a special train from Chicago to bring east the Jefferson county people residing in that city. They number upwards of 2,000. It is announced on authority of Tim- othy L. Woodruff and the republican leaders of Fulton and Hamilton counties, Durey and Cole, that the two counties will be made one within a short time by legislative action. Hamilton county is to be wiped off the map, and its 1,100,- 000 acres will be merged into Fulton county upontbe solicitation of the heavy taxpayers—J. Pierpont Morgan, H. Wal- ter Webb, Alfred G. Vanderbilt, the W. C. W T hitrrey estate, Timothy L Wood- ruff, Lucy L. Carnegie, the CollisP. Hunt- ington estate, the Duranfc estate and many other large New York owners of Adirondack lauds. Tbe taxpayers com- plain of the extravagance of running a great county machine to accommodate five thousand inhabitants. The merger, Mr. Woodruff asserts, has the sanction of the state departments which have to do with taxation and the deal will be consummated without delay. The new county will be the largest in area in the state. A man who was formerly an under- taker iu this village recently came back to look over his'plantation. He pays he is still in the undertaking business but he has yet to find a man as menn as the Canton man who called a good many year© ago to buy a coffin for his dead wife. Everything was satisfactory after he was encouraged to secure the cheap- est thing possible in caskets, but as the stingy one left the rooms he called the undertaker out and whispered in his ear, \Say can't you take those handles off a t the grave and deduct it from the bill?\ The undertaker looked him over from top to toe and caustically replied. \Yes 1 can take the handles off, but I can't allow you anything on them but I can save them and, when you die .your relatives won't need to buy a coffin. We can ar- range to screw these handles onto your sides and handle you in that way. \ The man concluded he would leave the handles on the coffin. MEN HELD THE FORT Thursday evening February t)th the men of The First Presbyterian church gave a supper at the old Dr. Ebenezer Fisher place on Judson Street. From common report of late years it has been learned that Canton benedicts or bache- lors know little and care less about the cooking or serving of mea-ls, but if the supper served Thursday night is a sam- ple of failure some one might be inclined to remark deliver ns from etc. A very largo number were present to enjoy the delicacies set up on the occasion, and among these the full active chapter of A. T. (). were on the field. A forbidding placard over the kitchen door, gotten up through the devilish ingenuity of Attor- neys A. Z. Squires and Joseph F. Brown warned all of the gentler sex agairist visiting the kitchen and it is needless to say that the members of that persua- sion did not venture therein. Caterer (J. W. Jack and his assistent J. Gaiser are receiving much praise on account of the delectable repast set up. The re- ceipts were about forty dollars. JUVENU-E MINSTRELS The minstrel show given in Miner Hall hint Friday evening by some of the younger talent of Canton, was a. grand success. The hall was crowded to its fullest capacity ami the loud applause gave the boys and girls an impetus to do their best. The first part was the usual first part of a minstrel show. The in- terlocutor was Harry Eggleston and the endmen were Case, Bush, McAndrews and Smith. There were about thirty in the chorus and ihe scene was a very pleasing spectacle as the curtain went up. The endmen carried out their part to prelection. They acted more like pro- fessionals than boys of sixteen. The songs were new and well sung. \Shame on You\ was especially well rendered by Case. Smith hud a bad cold and al- though he sings naturally a high tenor he sang his Kong a little higher than usual. It took well. One of the features of the first part was the entrance of Will Johnston as a fisherman. He had a song for the occasion, \Fishing.'\ \Cleo\ sung by the \Seven Alabama COOUH\ took the house by storm and they had to return more than onoe. The specialties were a little tediouanot having been rehearsed together. The. act of Case and McAndrevvs was good Case made an excellent girl and \Mick 1 was a good mate The \Musical fun' 1 by Feickert. H. Bush and Tripp was one of the best things of the evening and in J'act better than is seen in the average show. The idea was a good one in the first place,of introducing the music and Bush as tbe instructor was graceful and easy. Feickert was an ideal \nigger\. Every motion was perfect. Tho entertainment concluded with a farce by some of tho young ladies. Dancing wan in order after the show and forty-five couple remained.

BEARD AND THE RING Now and theu one is apt to hear of the term\ring M when politics is broached and the above caption might lead one to believe that the ' ; ring\ was again getting in its work. This time however the act was entirely graceful and the ring referred to is a massive old gold one, handsomely wrought, and apparently fits very be- comingly the finger of Mr. Iieard who has so capably filled the office of super- visor of the town of Canton the past two years. Mr. Beard was agreeably surprised atthetneetingof thetownboard Tuesday to be presented with this token < f esteem from lire colleagues on the board, Mr. A. H. Wiggins being spokesman on the r casion. The dougty hanker was taken rather off his feet but quickly rallied and responded feelingly in his character- istically pleasing way. The inner surface of the ring bears the inscription, \are- sen ted by the town board of Canton, IS\. Y.. 190.\ or words to that effort. COLLEGE NOTES.
