Having resided in the beautiful village of Madrid several weeks, it became apparent to us that a local newspaper was greatly needed here. Therefore, after consulting the business and professional men of the place upon the subject and re_ ceiving encouragement on every side, we concluded to make the venture, and thus appear this week in the form of a seven column folio paper entitled The Madrid Herald. The Herald will be an independent (not neutral) miscellaneous family journal, devoted to the local inter, eats of the town and community. It wiSl hot be confined strictly to the local field for news, but will also contain foreign news in & con_ densed form that will enable its readers to keep in touch with the outside world on the leading news and general topics of the day. The paper will be published every Thursdayat jjl.00 per year in ad_ vance. Experience has taught us that it is better to refrain from attempting to publish a large paper at first. Far better to begin at the bottom and work one's way to the top of the ladder round by round, than to attempt to light at the top in a spead eagle style and fall far short, making a dismal fail- ure of the whole project. We feel confident that every citizen will appreciate the local paper and ten_ der their hearty support in every way possible. Certainly the busi. ness men will not fail to grasp the opportunity of using the paper as an advertising medium. Every firm doing business here should be represented, not as a matter of charity, but as a sound business proposition. One has only to ob_ servejread and think to be convinc ed of the practical value of adver- tising. William J. Bryan states that the Kansas city platform will be re- ^ farmed by the Democrats at tW*® fte \' r St. Louis convention. Rather doubtful, William. Mrs. A. D. Fisher passed Satur- day in Ogdensburg. Mrs. George Wears passed part of last week in Massena. J. A. Meeker visited his sister at Aultsville last week. Cheese was sold at Tc per pound on the Watertown market Saturday. Mrs. W. H. Buftham is visiting her parents and relatives at Low- vine. Rev. E, M. Crandall is passing a few days at Newport, N. Y., his former charge. •—We are paying the market price for Wool. Bring it in.

The Republican County Con- vention will be held in Canton on Tuesday, June 7 at 1:30 p. m. Boyington's \creamery is doing its usual amount of business for the season of the year, making 11,000 lbs. of butter per week.

Debs has been nom- inated for president by the socialists. He accepts feluetantly but shyly remarks that they ought to have nominated a less distinguished man. The New York Tribune says that Belmont, Hill, McCarren and Sheeham have planned to raise five million dollars for the Democratic campaign fund. That will be $1,. 500,000 larger than the campaign fund of 1895. There is much clamor in the Methodist church for the restora- tion* of timelimit to pastorates, so that laymen who do not like their pastors can have the benefit of a change, and pastors who have a soft thing may not keep it over long to themselves, but share with some less fortunate brother. The smart and brilliant clergy should be sent to poor churches, and the dull and sop6rific should be preach- ing from the pulpits of the rich and self supporting churches. The ef- fect may be wonderful. NORWOOD, K.T. SUMMER INSTITUTES, • Commissioner of Education, An- drew S. Draper, announces three summer institutes of four weeks' duration each, at the following; places: Chautauqua, Thousand Is- land Park and Cliff Haven will op m Wednesday jMy 6 and close Tuesday August 8.

Governor Odell has signed the Newcomb Anti-Trading Stamp bill, which was frankly admitted as Intended to curtail radically the trading stamp business as widely carried on in this State. The trad- ing stamp companies fought it to the last day of the session, and be- fore the Governor. The bill re- quires every trading stamp, except those issued by individual mer- chants or manufacturers, to bear a stated face value in terms of money And to be redeemable in cash or merchandise at the option of the holder. 7 Governor Odell vetoed the Thompson Niagara Power bill, basing his action upon the prin- ciple that such valuable privileges '•''. as were proposed by the bill should '\ not ha given without compensation. The danger to the beauty of. Ni- Sgara&llsis pointed out by the Governor. —SSurt Waists at Algie & Tyo's in White Muslin at J&1.00, $1.25 and $1.50.

The fant^-biscturah^tcT'creani demonstration given at Horsford's store last Saturday by the National Biscuit Co|, t was a fine success. It was conducted by Mr, Doyle, repre- sentative ojfthe company, assisted by Mrs. Dpyle. • The object was to advertise- and place before the public the goods sold by that com- pany, therefore ice cream and fancy biscuit were served free.

Vrooman ofSyra- cuse, who has a job printing press in town, is contemplating starting a weekly newspaper. Our towns- people ought to do everything in their power to assist him in his undertaking.\ That is the right spirit and no doubt voices the senti- ment of the entire town. —If in need of Wall Papers or Carpets be sure to attend the great Special Sale now going on at Nathan Frank's Sons,Ogdensburg's Largest and Leading Dry Goods Store. In numerous places the side- walks of our village need repairing. It is much less expensive to repair a walk as soon as needed than to allow it to breakypentifdy. Then you know the convenience to the general public a«d$ie aigdedivtfUi.. ation to ones property should -bus considered. The shipment of butter from the local station at Gouverneur last- week amounted to fifteen tons. The American Express company made all the shipments. Most of the butter was from creameries within a radius of a few miles of Gouvern- eur. The shipment of last week exceeded that of the previous week! by nearly, five tons. Jtimit of Tall Buildings. In discussing the subject of tall build- ings in the Architectural Record George .Hill says; The height is to a certain ex- tent unlimited, but probably 26 stories I® likely to be the average of the high building. The writer ma.y be la error, for thasre are many Influences to be con- sidered; but so far ae he has been able £o discover absolutely no engineering or economic limit of height below about Bight stories, provided' the area of the !ot be sufficient. Taking into consider- ation, however, the ethical or senti- mental side of human nature, it Is the writer's belief that, while many build- ings will exceed 25 stories, many more, sufficient at least to establish a gener- al practice, will be kept flown to 16 or 20 stories, if left free from municipal in- terference. On the other hand, the writer believes that the Interests of the municipality would be best served by es- tablishing height limits in certain dis- tricts, so that the population by day in iuch areas will not be too large for easy •transportation and wholesome Hying, and so that some regularity of skyline may be secured. The typical plan will naturally tend toward a V-form, open to the south. Just received from New York. Try Palace Car Canned Goods, Cupon Rolled Oats. •t-JS] «&iBKBiiJUelN A New Charity. Prof. Hyslop's plan of \treating the poor by hypnotism\ seems to speak for the largest possibilities. Koswell Field says our treatment of the poor has not been characterized of late years by re- markable philanthropy, and in these days of food trusts and high prices some- thing must be done to relieve the situa- tion. Hypnotism is a wonderful science, and if we can employ a competent corps of experts to visit the poor quarters ev- ery morning and make a few efficacious passes a problem will be solved. If through hypnotism we can seemingly transform a barrel hoop into a ton of coal and a piece of scrap iron into a sir- loin roast, we have made such progress as cannot be overestimated. For hunger and cold are purely mental conditions, as hypnotists have often proved, and may be thus easily remedied. But is this exactly fair to the trusts, which should receive our distinguished,consideration, and which constitute the bulwark of our prosperity? Should we thus hinder them from making an honest and adequate living? ^ Fresh line of Lowney's Candies, All kinds of Breakfast Foods. Gr©©a,i3 ^Delivered,* •3?ele:p2a*©n.e UTonax Ea^Ia.

The way the average American strives after the extremes was illustrated the o'fher day \to a\ .party otfighTse'erTftrtter 1 financial district of New York, who asked permission of the hall man in one of the sky scrapersto go on the roof for the sake of the fine view it affords. 'Ta sorry, gents,\ eaid the man In charge of the elevators; \but the roof is not open to visitors to-day. A man was up there the other day who was not satisfied with the fat-I that he was on top of a 27-story building, but got a ladder and tried to clamber on top of the water tank on the roof, presumably so he could see-better. But he was clumsy, and fell, breaking his leg. We had a hard time getting him down to the street and) to a hospital. Now he is suing the owners of the building for damages!\ Chantilly and Oriental Laces Made Over Everything in the Millinery line at McCormick's, The members of the graduating class at the West Point Military academy lately received the usual gift at Bibles from the American Tract society. Tha Rev. Dr. Stevenson, of the Fifth Ave- nue Presbyterian cfcsurch. New York city, made an address, and handed the Bibles with a personal word to each of the cadets as they passed before him. Unless special preference had been indicated, says the Churchman, the version presented was the Ameri- caa Revision.

He swore vengeanee, and when he grew to be a rich man he bought the schoolhouse and demolished it, according to Youth's Companion, no further proof is needed that ho deserved the whipping. The growth of the gulf porta as export- ing points is one of the marked develop- ments of the day. But it is not more re- markable than the groat growth of tha south as a manufacturing community. An Anglo-Russian friendship is a beautiful and touching spectacle and it will last right up to the time when one or the other of the nations interested has no further use tor it. It it be true that the Jap troops in Korea are suffering from herl-berl, ft is possible that beri-heri has been misrep- resented audi is something that ought to he cultivated.
