Next year a new steamer will be placed on Lake George by The Cham- plain Transportation Company. The Horicon will take the trip formerly performed by the Ticonderoga, which was recently burned, while the new boat will take the schedule formerly operated by the Horicon. As yet the name of the new boat has not been determined, but the con- tracts call for the completion of the boat for operation July 1, 1902. The boat will be constructed by The W. & A. Fletcher Company of Hoboken, N. J., the contract for the hull being sub-let to The Harlan & Hollingsworth Company of Wilming- ton, Del., and the joiner work to Job u Inglis & Son of Brooklyn. The Fletcher Company built the Fall River Line steamers, Plymouth and Priseilla, and is one of the best known aud most capable shipbuild- ing companies. The new boat will be li>5 feet long I the water line and 203 feet ovei all. The beam or width of the boat will bo thirty feet and fifty-nine feet over all. The depth of the hold will be ten feet six inches. The boat will be fitted with watertight bulkheads. It will have a vertical beam engine, forty-four-inch cylinder, ten feet stroke and two boilers of return tubular pattern, eight feet in di- ameter and twenty-three feet long. The wheels are of the patent feather- ing pattern, twenty-three feet in diameter, and the buckets work automatically to feather in leaving the water. This prevents much resistance and allows greater speed. The boat will be fitted with search- lights, steam steering gear and every modern convenience. The dining room will be on the main deck. The cost of the new steamer will be about $150,000. The Champlain Transportation Newman. Sept. 30.—Mr. aud Mrs. Harvey Randall and family of North Dakota arc visiting friends and relatives in town.

It is seldom that a death causes as luch surprise and sorrow as that of Lee Woodruff Sherman on Sept. 10th, 1901, aged eleven years, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred E. Sherman of Wadhams Mills, N. Y. The years of 1808 and 1890 were spent by Mr. and Mrs. Sherman at Elizabeth-towu where Lee attended school and made many friends; he had planned to visit his friends and schoolmates at that place the week of his death. Lee was taken ill on Saturday but was not considered to be in a dan- gerous condition until the day of his death which occurred on Tuesday evening. Just before his death he said: 'Papa am I going to die;\ his father answered, \I don't know, Lee;\ he then put his arms around his mother's neck and repeated the Lord's prayer, then kissed parents and in a short time his life in this rorld ended. The funeral was held at the home on Thursday after noon and although the day was a rainy one, the largo attendance and the number of flowers mowed the love of kiud friends. Rev. A. Dracas had charge of the service and preached a helpful ser- mon; the text was from Matthew, 18tb chapter, 10th verse. It was a sad sight to see the casket carried from the home by the youngcousins, Tom Sherman, Richard Woodruff, Roy Sherman and Robert Howard. Lee will be remembered as a boy of quiet and thoughtful nature, with a pleasiugface and gentlemanly man- Company will also construct a new boat for its Lake Champlain service.

Our own Ira Hall's Left Leg Broken. Saturday afternoon about four o'clock Ira Hall of this place, who was employed by CharlesOldruff on the new cottages up back of G. W.

After unloading the stone-boat he started up the horses, the stone-boat snub- bed against a small black cherry stump, bobbed up and hit him on the left leg so as to instantly break it as above noted. Dr. Thomas A. Wasson of this villageset the broken member and Mr. Hall is doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances. This is the second experience of the kind Mr.Hall has had, as he broke bis right leg just above the ankle carpenters, stone masons and painters and several additional incs from Lewis and Westport are constantly employed by local con- tractors.

Oct. 1.—James Henry McNeel, M. D., son of the late Mr. and Mrs. amesT.McNeel,former residents of the town ofLewis,accompanied by his sister-in-law, his daughter and her lady friend, all from Fon-Du-Lac, Wis., arrived at the home of his only surviving- Aunt, Mrs. Roger VanOrnum, in Whallonsburgh Fri- day, after an absence of 46 years, being 18 years old when he left the home of his youth, with his parents and other children and has since that date been a resident of Fon- Du-Lac. Very many readers of the town of Lewis will recall his par- ents, also the Dr. with many fond memories, as they were held in high esteem by a large circle of friends; he was in the employ of the late Gen. Wm. S. Merriam in Lewis for an iudefinate period and was also clerk one year in the store for Wm. P. Merriam in Westport and was a student in the academy at Keese- ville at one time, and like the most of our Essex County boys had a longing desire to behold the beauti- ful and majestic scenery of old Essex County once more, and visit these places that were so strongly endeared to him in his youth. Also to visit the remaining relatives in Potsdam, Whallonsburgh and Ti- conderoga, all of which he has been jermitted to enjoy, making \the present\ a bright spot in his life, that no oblivion can obscure from his memory. They spent a few days at the Pan-American, visited Niagara Falls, Montreal, Thousand Islands, aud many other points of interest; they went by boat to Ti conderoga Saturday and made a short visit and thence to New York, where they were booked for two days and then leave for their home in Wisconsin. Mr. McNeel prac- ticed his profession skillfully for 32 years and still has extensive prac- tice; he contemplates repeating his visit in future, showing the eher ished memories of his Essex County home and friends. All hope that providence will not order it other- wise. Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Sage went to Rutland Tuesday for a two weeks visit at the home of his son Willard Sage and family. Mrs. E. R. Mather and her three children after spending the summer with her people hero and her hus- band also returned to Clinton, Mass.. Thursday and will remain with his brother N. E.
