In order to receive the dividend, it will be necessary that certi­ ficate holders present to the First National Bank their certificates for the endorsement thereon of such payment. The action of the Trustees for the Waiving Depositors of the First National in declaring a ten per cent dividend at this particular time will doubtless be much appreciated by the depositors. in Sala­ manca and immediate* vicinity and is good news at a time when good news is about as scarce as the proverbial “hens teeth.” Approximately $31,800 will be dispersed in this first dividend and should help considerably at this season of the year.

O, P. Colunnn Judge Frederick C. Hill, C. S. of Los Angeles, California, a member of the Board of Lectureship of the Mother Church, The First Church of Christ Scit^ptist in Boston, delivered a lecture on Christian Science, en­ titled: “Christian Science, God’s Law of Progress’, at the high school auditorium last evening. The lec­ turer was introduced by Mrs. Helen Pickup, First Reader, of the local church. The lecture, sponsored by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Salamanca, was in part as follows: In presenting the subject of Chris­ tian Sceince to you I shall make an earnest endeavor to present its ob­ ject and purpose from the stand­ point of what it is and how it op­ erates, as distinguished from that which it is often erroneously believ­ ed to be. I can think of no better introduc­ tion in presenting the motive and purpose of Christian Science than to refer to a public declaration recent­ ly made by a clergyman who, in the course of a sermon is reported to have said “Christian Science sprang j eral, Bennett D, 1,907,022; Powers R, directly out of the Holy Scriptures ‘ 1,106,708; For Senator, Copeland D, for Christ introduced healing and the ^ 1,951,030; Cluett R, 1,219,751. Both New York state went heavily Demo»- cratic in th© election held Tuesday. All state officers runniug on the Democratic ticket were renamed and the Democrats gained a seat in the House of Representative in, an up­ state district, the 38th, where James L. Whitley, present Republican in­ cumbent was defeated hy James F . B. Duffey, his Democratic opponent. For the first time since 1913 the state legislature, both in the Assembly and the State; Senate is in the hands of the Democratic powers. In the Assembly, traditional strong hold of the Republicans the Democrats have a clear majority of foixr votes and in the state senate which has been closely contested for several years, th© majority party has a lead of at least nine. For the first time in the history of the state a woman ■will take a seat in the State Senate, Mrs. Rhoda Fox Graves of OgdensbUTg becoming the first . female state senator by defeating John L. O’Con­ nor, also of Ogdensburg, by a wide margin. ■‘^’’ote in State At a late hour Wednesday the figures on state officers v/ere as ■follows: For Governor, Lehman D, 2,342„104; Moses R, 1,681,148; For Lieutenant Governor, Bray D, 1,895,- 712; Douglas R, 1,162,921; For Comp­ troller, Tremaine D, 1,912,540'; Camp­ bell R, 1,106,708; 'For Attorney Gen- driving: out of superstition in hig O^Wn day.” From this declaration it should be plainly apparent that the religious world is beginning to recognize that Christian Science is a religion and that the fundamental purpose of this religion is to re-instate the es­ sential elements of primitive Christ­ ianity, including the element of spiritual healing. Christian Science is a discovery. It is the discovery of an absolute provable law. This dis­ covery was made in 1866 by a gentle Democratic Representative at Large were elected, Mrs. O’Day receiving 1,852,634 votes, Merritt, 1,828,201. Their Republican opponents. Couch and Groat receiving 1,226,312 and 1,- 198,201 votes respectively. For Associate Judge of the Court of Appeals, Lcughran supported by both Democrats and Republicans won and Finch, the Democratic candidate for the other position defeated Sears, Republican, 93,829 to 33,3J8. In The County In spit© of the general Democratic New England woman, Mary Baker , • Cattaraugus County re- Eddy. She defined Christian Science Republican oy substantial “As the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrat­ ing the de^vine Principle and rule of Universal harmony.” She wrote and published her book “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” which she designated the Christian Science Text Book. This book is not a Bible. It is not a substitute for the Bible, but it is just that which its name indicates, a Key to the Bible to aid and assist in discovering, and interpreting and appljdng the heal­ ing spiritual truths set forth in the great English classic the King James version of the Bible. The interest in this book has grown by leaps and bounds until it has become recognized and declared by many as the most important pro­ duction among religious ■writings with the exception of the Holy Bible. It is now more than fifty years since this book became public prop­ erty. The interest of the reading public therein contains unabated. - -------- oo --------- Will Observe Arm istice Day John D.

The average attend­ ance the past week has been sixty- one and the number is expected to reach and perhaps exceed seventy within the next fe^w ■weeks. Classes are being held in the high school, Jefferson street, in the after­ noon from 4:30 to 9 o’clock in the evening, five days each week. Stud­ ents are registered in four courses, which are English, History, Mathe­ matics, and' Langua^, with either German or French. This constitutes a full freshman course and any student who sii^cerely desires to advance himself can gain from 32 to 34 hours of college cred- / it by the completion of this program. These credits will be accepted at Al­ fred and other colleges. Several are taking courses simply for. the edu­ cational value and with no idea of gaining college credits. The permanent teaching staff has now been engaged, which includes: Miss Mary Brick of New York City, who received an A. B. degree at Hunter and an M. A. degree at Col­ umbia, will'\ teach mathematics; Ross G. FrounSwick, Attica, M. A. Syra­ cuse, and seven years of high school and nine years of college teaching experience, will 'teach French and German;. C. Duryea Smith, Brent­ wood, who has done work toward his Ph.

Text Books and Local Bond Issue Both Defeated The proposition for the city to buy text books for the use of pupils in the public schools and the proposi­ tion to issue bonds to the amount of $12,000 for the purpose of disposing of the sewage entering the Allegany river within the city limits were both defeated in Tuesday’s election. The text book proposition which seemed to be the more discussed one of the two was defeated by a vote of 110. There were cast in favor of the proposition 873, and against, 983. The wards voted on the text book proposition as follows: First Ward, district 1, for 47, against 79. Second district—^for 15, against 38. Second Ward—^for 216, against 279. Third Ward—^for 154, against 154 Fourth Ward, district 1—^for 165, against 171. Second district—^for 88, against 143. Fifth Ward—^for 188, against 119. The bonding proposition lost probably because of the fact that the program for the use of the $ 12,000 was rather indefinite and the aver­ age taxpayer nowadays, wants to know just how the money is going to be spent before he votes in favor of spending it. The bonding proposi­ tion lost by 291, 577 voting for the proposition and 868 against. The vote on the $12,000- bonding/ issue by wards was as follows: First Ward, district- —^fo r 94, against 115. Second district—^for 62, against 28.' Second Ward—^for 134, against 243. Third Ward—-for 85, against 108. Fourth Ward, district one-^for 72, against 128. Second district—^for 58, ■ against 100 . Fifth Ward—^for 72, against 146.

Cheese Week Mrs. Morris Visits Music Clubs Mrs. Etta Hamilton Morris of New York, president of the New York State Federation of Music clubs, was the guest of the Euterpean, Crescen­ do and Lily-Dunning clubs at a joint meeting in the library club rooms last Saturday evening. Mrs. Morris delivered an address on music, in which she told of a music festival held at Watertown last summer, and encouraged musical contests. The meeting was opened with the following program: piano duet, “Farfaletta” by Callista Blank and Helen Floetke; and a Beethoven piano solo by Janet Lowe. Light refreshments were served by a committee composed of Mrs. A. S. Carpenter, chairman, Mrs. Glenn Gates and Miss Wihna Landon. Mrs. Morris was the honor guest at a tea given by the Mozart club in Jamestown Sunday. In a world where it has become popular for many industries to rit back and cry for help, it is not with­ out significance that one of our major agricultural industries, cheese-making, is putting its faith in the old-time practice of helping it­ self. Confronted \with a 30,000,000 pound surplus of cheese, the dairy- farmer believes that if he himself eats an extra pound or so of cheese and he can eon-rince his city brother that he should go and do likewise the cheese surplus will be- taken care of. If this program of self-help suc­ ceeds, man’s best friend, the cow— who has grown rather lean amf lank these past days—^will once more be established on a paying basis. Na­ tional Cheese Week— to be held IMs year November 11 to 17-—^is- flkO dairyman’s and the cheese indh^^^^S answer to the surplus problem in the industry. It isn’t a case of the dairy farm­ er lifting himself entirely by his own well-worn bootstraps, for the success of the program depends up­ on the cooperation of the consum­ ing public. The goal is for each family in the United States to eat one pound more cheese than it would ordinarily consume during the week of November 11 to 17. This should prove to be no hardship; for cheese is one of the most economical staple commodities on the market today. Per pound i t > represents the. highest food value obtainable and at the low­ est cost. Because cheese is the most highly concentrated protein food known and contains in addition val­ uable milk minerals, its energy value is an eloquent inducement to house­ wives *to include an extra pound of it in the menu for November 11 ■to 17. This is the second National Cheese Week in the program of in­ creased consumption undertaken by the dairy farmers and the industry as a whole, bached by governors of those states in which eheesemaking is a ■vital factor in industry. Cheese Week was undertaken again this year largely because of ■the success of the week last year. That program definitely convinced the dairy farmer that it is possible for him to work out his own salvataon. In the course of Cheese Week in 1933, the industry succeeded in put­ ting into consumption the entire na­ tional surplus of cheese estimated at well over 30 million pounds. The effect upon prices paid the farmer for his milk extended far be­ yond the actual confines of the week itself and made possible the contin­ uance in business of thousands and thousands of dairy farmer. It had the further effect of per­ manently increasing our national per capi'ta cheese consumption to a noticeable degree. With the ground work of national education about cheese, its economy and high food value already laid, the dairy farmers and the industry as a whole believe that the second Na­ tional Cheese Week will prove even more successful. Certainly the spec­ tacle of an agricultural industry tak­ ing steps to construct its O'Wii fu­ ture along sound economic principles is an encouraging sign of better bus­ iness all along the line. So, “Lets have another cup of cof­ fee, let’s have another piece of cheese.” Station WHDL, Olean^ Now In Operation Southwestern New York’s newest broadcasting station, WHDL, is now on the air, making its debut, last Sunday morning.
