'Abe cat was seen by a ti'-ayeling man\ who was making,the smaller villages between Philadelphia and Carthage with a team, owing' td.. the curtailed train service. The cat leaped through the snow from a .crabby woods by the roadside, appearing quite close to the drummer's rig and being distinctly visible in the moonlight. The horses to,say nothing pf the -salesman, took fright, and'-the -,cat followed for a q uarter .pf iv mile, uttering cries that '.made tlie;flasserige.r's hair stand'on end. ' '•-' '. - \ , - The unquestioned presence of a cat in Jefferson county, last fall adds credence to, the\ report.. . The- animal was seen on several occasions near .Theresa..and' Lafafpeville. 'it gave one farmer a hot chase from a corn field to his home and. worsted a dog in open combat. Hunting parties failed to. bag him. . Army officers entertained the be- lief that the atampeed of 500 horses from the Pino Plains artillery camp <last summer was occasioned by a wild animal approaching the corral. Tlie terrified horses broke a cable and poured, into \Watertown by ; d'roves r devastating 35 miles of higliwa5 r and wrecking several auto- mobiles and carriages. ; Many wild animals have come out of the woods this winter, supposedly •because of the freezing streams and J Swings and absence of available wa- ter.

Watertown, March 22. — Whiie city veliicles have been on wheels i'O'- more than two weeks, many farm- ers have used runners up to Wednes- day and in some of Jefferson county the sleighing has only recently be- come poor. A resident of the north- ern section of the county who was in the city this afternoon stated that he. had just shifted to wheels alter usinc; sleighs since December 8. By actual count this makes 101 days ol sleighing in Jefferson county. There is still much snow on the Rutland nills, and towards Lewis Co. the- fields are white. Taxis from the city cab stands are- juf.t beginning to venture into the country. The Sac- ket Haibor road it quite passable, for autos, altlio icy in a few places. ISXTERftD INTO REST.

The coming; exposition -of- the' association will mark its hundi-odth anniversary, and in commemoration of this and as a patriotic duty in stimulating agriculture, .plans for a banner exposition are being made. Realizing the need of horses to meet the necessities of the army and the requirements of industrial activ- ities, the directors added a third prize to classes in the horse depar't- mejit. Heretofore, there have been only two prizes in these events. The cash, prizes are also increased, being raised in most instances by several dollars, which with • the additional award will mean no small item. The usual spring repairs to build- ings and grounds Will be undertaken as soon as the weather permits. Last year the association adopted the pol icy of engagigno regular'superinten- dent, having work done under the supervision of the grounds commit- tee. It is probable that the same practice will be followed this year. The association saved much ex- pense by turning the track over to the Driving club last spring, the club taking over the control and mainten- ance of the track for its use by the club. Whether such an arrange- ment will be entertained this spring will not be known until after the semi-annual meeting of the Driving club, April 1. The club has held no racing this winter, but its future ac- tivity will probably be determined at that time. MAX ?K KILLED BY FALLING LOG Failed to Hear Warning.

In bis communication President Cooper notified the producers that their milk for April had not been sold end he advised them to prepare to manufacture or otherwise take, care of their output after March 31. The trouble seems to be that the market, is overstocked with condens- ed milk, which is being used, very treely in the cities where tlie price of fresh miik is higher than it is bora. In the. West and in Canada milk prices are from 50 to 75 cents per 100 pounds lower than here. With millions of-pounds of cheese in cold storage and the market over- stocked with condensed milk the outlook for the farmers is not en- couraging, but it is hoped that, some nrrangemont can bo made whereby (he- producers will not suffer aiiy treat loss. The Federal Milk Com- mission will meet next Simdnv aim It is hoped that a satisfactory adjust- ment will be reached. SKXTIONCJOD PO?l DISLOYAL WORD.S Rev. C.
