VOL. XXXVI Cattaraugus, New York, February 13, 1920. No. 7 WORKS DRY HND NIGHT In the southwestern part of New York state, the nine Iniles of dir^ road -between Dayton and Cattarau­ gus is in a very poor condition. The other day a man in Gowanda was on his way home from Olean, when his autogot stalled in a mudhole, and while making a vain attempt to es­ cape, a boy appeared with a team of horses. The following conversa­ tion-took place: “ Haul you out Mister?” “ How much do you want?” “ Three, dollar».” After a long and fruitless argu­ ment the motorist was pulled to dry land. After handing over the money he said : “ Do you haul many cars out in a day?” , _ “ I have pulled out eleven today,” Replied the boy, with a brctad smile. — The Farm Journal DR. S.

He was born among the Shropshire hills'df Eng­ land in 1864. His collegiate course completed with honor and distinc­ tion at Richmond College, London ¡University, he at once came to America and' thus fulfilled the iir- tention of his life. When he landed in America a t the age of twenty-five he was without a friend on this side of the Atlantic. Not a great while after, to be exact about four years, he was made pas­ tor of the Metropolitan Temple, for­ merly the .church where Bishop John P. Newman had preached and Gen­ eral U. S.

No one ap­ peared in behalf of the contestant. A default was taken upon the issues and the matter again certified back to the Surrogate’s Court and a final to probate. , The real point of the litigation, however, regts in the fact that the will contains a provision that if eith­ er of the children of the deceased contest the will, then the ones so con­ testing shall receive only $5.00 The only ones to be benefitted by a suc­ cessful contest are the two daughters and they with their husbands-'and children are the active ones in* this application. The Old lady, the wid- ow, is apparently being used by them to promote a contest by which she cajt£ in no event gain anything, but which they are not courageous en­ ough to undertake for fear of for­ feiting their rights under the in case the contest is successful. i On the merits of the controversy the claim of the contestants is a very impfSfrable one. If the daughters who are the real contestants wish to' contest this will, theyr should come forward and do so in their ofrri right and In' their own name, and not ask to do so through the- medium of the widow, who has nothing to gain by such a contest. The motion should be denied with $10.00 costs. MRS. LONETTA M, CHASE . . Mrs. Lonetta M.

(After the business meeting and supper Mr.Dan Cunningham acted as Toastmaster and called on nearly every member of the Post for a short talk. Everyone responded with at least a story and to all appearances everyone seemed to have a regular honest to goodness good time. J. J. McCarthy and J.- F. Carroll attended the supper as guests of .the post and were both called on for short talks. The post wishes to take McCarthy and Mr. Carroll for their many kindnesses to the post. Mr. McCarthy has been coaching the characters who are to present “ The American Flag,” and it is largely thru his efforts that the post is able to put on this play. Mr. Carroll has been very kind to the post in the past and we wish to thank himfor every­ thing that he has' done for us. After the program was brought to a close, Mr. Cunningham requested Mr. Larsen and Mr. Marvin to favor the members with some music. This they proceeded to do, while most of the others eat around and smoked, and talked over old times. The cele­ bration broke up at about twelve o’clock and everyone went home feel­ ing that the Legion was made up of a bunch of good fellows, and voting the banquet a huge success. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE GIVES OUT REPORT During the war the < wholesale price of sugar was 9e and the whole­ saler was allowed 68c per hundred and the retailer was allowed a profit of lc per pound. The wholesale price of sugar is now frorh 15 to 19c per pound, and the wholesalerS^and retailers are required to invest ap­ proximately twice the amount of money which they formerly invested in sugar. - They are now also requir­ ed to pay for sugar before receiving same. In view of these facts, the dealers maintain they • should be allowed more profit than they received when sugar cost only 9c. This question has«' been taken up with the Department of Justice at Washington, and we have received a wire from them stating that the Department regards $1.00 per hun­ dred as maximum reasonable margin for wholesaling sugar arid ;2c 'per pound as maximum reasonable mar­ gin for retailing sugar. Dealers may govern «themselves accordingly. Prosecution will be instituted in all casos where tlua margin is* exceeded. Tho co-operation of wholesalers, re­ tailers and house wive» js requested in order to have food and clothing sold at fair prices, and they are re­ quested tp ¿report any sales o f sugar or offler commodities . at cxcelsive- pi’ices ip James B..

Offices have he eh provided for them at the following listed places, where they will be at the date set opposite each respective place, as follows: Gowanda P. O. Bldg., Feb. 10 to Feb. 14 Franklinville P.O. Bldg:, Feb.16 to Feb. 21. T* Olean Federal Bldg., Feb. .10 to Mar. 15. Salamanca P. O. Bldg., Feb.10 to Mar. 16. They will, be there every day read- y and willing to help persons, sub­ ject to the income tax, make out their returns, withojit any cost to them for their services. Returns ' o f income for the year 1919 must bèmnade on forms provid­ ed for the purpose on or hefove Mar. 15, 1920. Because a good many peo­ ple don’t understand «the Law and won’t know how to make out their returns,the Government is sending in this expert to do it for them. But the duty is on the taxpayer to make himself known to the Government. If he doesn’t make return, as^iequir- ed, before March 15, he may have to pay a civil penalty, pay a fine or go to jail. So if yob don’t want-to take chances qn going to Jail, you better call on the income tax man. If you are nOt sure about being subject to the tax, better ask him and male sure. Whether yon see the income tax nian or riot, you must make re­ turn,if yoq. were a married ijjan liv­ ing with your wife, and your 1919 income, equalled $2000 or more, or if you ar6 anyother person, whose income was$1000 or more. Of,, course, persons resident in other counties, may, if they want to, come and see the income tax man, who will be at thé places listed above. There will be no general extension of time to file returns, so that you should have your return drawn immediately. The Law provides that at'least one-quarter of your tax must be paid on or before March 15, 1920. This payment should accomp­ any your return when filed. There­ fore, when you call on the income tax man, you should be prepared to pay one-quarter of your total tax. MARY PICKFORD IN “ THE PRIDE OF-THE CLAN’ Mary Pickford’e appearance is al ways one of charm. No matter whether she is in rags, the silk kim- or.aJof Butterfly, the riot of .colors of far away India, the worn out home garments of Tess and the Foundling or the clattering wooden shoes of Hulda, there is always the same charm, the same sweetness and the wihsoinencss that makes her so appealing to everyone. In her latest Artcraft picture, “ The Pride of the Clan” ,to be seen at d ie Palace Tuesday and Wednes­ day,she portrays thcScqtcft Lassie and when clad in kilts and with her hair thrown about liar gracefully poised head she is more, beautiful than ever. It,is a character too that holds out ¿¡very opportunity to the star for making it one of the most popular parts she lias ever created. In other words-* it is ah’.ideal Mary Bickford part and that is just what- alj ° f the Mary Pictyford admirers most want.
