In the full meridian of his mental vigor and his ripe experience, our friend and brother, Frank C. Doig, haa passed from the light, the music, and the perfumes of earth to the world of eternal beauty beyond the sun. That summons to which every one shall harken and all mortality obey reached him in the zenith of his powers and with his plans of future work all spread out before him. We desire to place upon record this testimonial of our love and Regard for the departed, feeling asTTas beenT lo beautifully said: \When hearts, whose truth was proven, Like thine, are laid in earth, There should a wreath be woven To tell the world their worth. \ Frank C.

LOWVILLE OPERA HOUSE. \ The Thief Will be the Attraction To- Morrow Evening. \The Thief.\ the extraordinary French play by thatgreat dramatist, Henri Bernstein, which comes to the Lowville opera house to-morraw (Fri- day) evening is universally regarded as the best of his works. It is a tale of crime committed by a young wife greedy for her husband's love and who sees that the only one way of holding him to her heart is to dress beyond her means and his own. His salary com- pels her to dress inexpensively. She notes that he admires well-gowned women and she notes too that those women are attracted to him by his very love of feminine finery. Fearful of losing him she secretly orders gowns that cannot possibly be paid for by him. Hounded by the creditors she yields to temptation and systematically robs her friends in their houses during visits ~ „ , , A ,, i she makes them.

Miss Fearless & Co. The presentation of the comedy, \Miss Fearless & Co.,\ by the Delta Gamma Sorority at Virklers hall, Tues- day evening, pleased a large audience. We would hardly dare to say that one character was interpreted better than another, all the young ladies doing well, and showing the careful instructions of Mrs Perry G. Williams, under whose direction the play was given. Between the second and third acts the Sorority favored the audience with a fraternity song, which was greatly enjoyed. Valedictorian of His Class. \ LeRoy W. Doxtater, of Lowville, who will graduate from the Michigan College of Dental Surgery, Ann Arbor, Mich., in June, has been chosen vale- dictorian of his class, which numbers about seventy-five.

During this time he has never missed a class or failed in a sub- ject All his work has been above the honor mark, and he is considered one of the best workmen in his class.

Besides her parents, Miss Bibbins is survived by three brothers, Frank, of Morrison, III., and Fred and Clarence, of Rodman, and one sis- ter, Mrs. Lena M. Gummings, of Burrs Mills. Dropped Dead at Newark. Charles R. North, a well-known con- tractor and builder of Watertown, dropped dead at Newark, N. J., Fri- day, where he had been since December engaged in the construction of a large building. He was 38 years of age and had always enjoyed good health. Mr. North passed his younger years at Pulaski, where he was married to Stella Kellogg, who survives him, to- gether with two sons, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. .A North, all of Wa- tertown. her with attention.

The Jefferson county board of super- visros has authorized the building of a new jail in Watertown pnjthe plans pre- pared by Architect 0. D. Greene, Jr. The sum of $90,000 was authorized for the work, although Mr. Greene is of the opinion that from $72,000 to $73,000 will build it, exclusive of his fees, which will amount to about $4,000. It is to be built of light colored brick, faced on the inside with enameled brick, and a little over two stories in height, the idea being to provide for extending it up another story if there is a demand for additional accommoda- tions. and faithful member, deeply interested in the club, its social life and good fel- lowship, and will be sadly missed by us all. His useful public life, his ster- ling character, his kindly and friendly disposition, and his loyal devotion to the club and its interests, endeared him to his fellow members, and we feel that we do not overstate it when we say he was the best loved member of the club. So in the community in which his life was passed,no citizen was better liked or more generally respected and there has been none whose death was more universally regretted. To rugged honesty he added native good sense, and we all came to rely up- on his Judgment and friendly counsel. His charity was large, and with liberal hand and loyal heart he gave freely to every worthy object As a citizen he was always public spirited and active in everything that was for the public good. In the words of a great orator: \He added to the sum of human joy, and were everyone for whom he did some loving service to bring a blossom to his grave he would sleep to-night beneath a wilderness of flowers.\ \There was, there is, no stronger, gentler, manlier man.\ His home life was ideal; he was a loving and indulgent husband and father and an affectionate brother; his nature was such that his happiest mo- ments were spent in the sacred precincts of home, and in sweet association of those he loved, by whom he was loved and honored in an unusual degree, and his dying bed was rendered sweet by their loving ministrations. To the stricken family in this hour of their bereavement we can say but little; words are but idle at the best, but to them we extend our earnest prayerful sympathy, hoping, trusting, believing, that we shall be separated for but a little while, and that in the great be- yond, toward which we all hasten, the family shall be reunited, and that we shall all \meet him face to face.\ \Then be contentrpoor heart!

It was an action on alleged breach of a contract engaging Mr. Massa as gen- eral manager of the company on March 13, 1907. He claimed the contract con- tinued for 18 months at a salary of the ladder for the purpose of steadying it. As soon as Mr. Volk knocked out j the bolt a part of the tackle broke and ! the heater pitched forward, pinning, Mr. Bernhola to the floor, crushing his ' skull and breaking his left leg, and! other injuries were inflicted. Death < was instantaneous. , The deceased was well known and had a great many friends. He was born near Constableville and had sev- eral relatives-in Lewis county. His first wife was Mary-CooneyT-whadied-about- six years ago, and for his second wife he married Miss Marie Noon, of Utica, about three months ago. The follow- ing children survive : C. A.

The residents of Delta,Oneida county, are again disturbed with being served with notices by state officials to vacate their properties by May 1st, as they will be taken by the state at that time. These notices are served on the resi- dents in the lower part of the village, who were served blue prints two weeks ago, signifying to them that the state proposes to take their property. The blue prints were a surprise to the Del- taites as they did nr>t think they would be reqired to get out under two or three years if at all, and now that they are served with papers to get out at once, they really think something is doing. This is working a great hard- ship to some of the residents, as they have no money to get out with, and the state is not paying them anything on their property, and what is more the property owners do not know when they, will realize on their property.

At the old stand on Dayan street. F. J. Bowen & Son. I. Starkweather, a trustee of the vil- lage of West Carthage. He testified as to the present plans of taking the supply of water from the Vrooman springs in the town of Denmark, where a reservoir is—to-be-built. It is pro- posed to construct a standpipe about three-fourths of a mile from the head- springs. The pipe line will be about three miles in length. The taxpayers have already voted the sum of $30,000 for the construction of the system and can secure money on four per cent, bonds. Two objections had been filed. The objectors were Amorite Crook and Elizabeth and Emma Kelner, who claimed that their farm lands would be deprived of water if the system was constructed. The commission passed a resolution that the application of the village be granted. The commission held that the plans were just and equitable and that because of the notices that had been served upon them that a water supply from West Car- thage was a public necessity and that he determination of damages had been properly taken care of and that no municipalities would be affected by the execution of the lands. The trustees of the village have de- cided to spend about $6,000 upon the streets this summer, and will begin the work at once. Notice of Meeting to Hear Complaints. Take Notice: The assessors of the village of Lowville, N. Y., have pre- pared their assessment roll for the cur- rent year; that a copy thereof has been deposited with the village clerk, at his ffi in idd ill h itt be the term. Grace Cleveland against Clarence Cleveland; action for divorce; over the term. Taggart Paper Company against Cas- par Engert; over the term. The first case tried before a jury was that of Rose M. Urtz, as administra- trix, etc., of Richard M. Urtz, deceased, against the New York Central arid Hud- son River Railroad Company. The fol- lowing jurymen were accepted: Edwin Beach, Watson; CharlesO'Hara,Turin; Michael Fogarty, West Turin; Albert Klosner, West Turin; Jay Salsburg, Greig; Charles Boni, Denmark; Edgar Barker, Denmark ; William J. Hough- ton, Lowville; Nicholas Henry,Watson; James Roach, West Turin; Ward Higby, Highmarket; William Stafford, Mon-] tague. ! The action grows out of one of the many settlements made by Henry J. McCormick while claim agent for the R., W. & O. division. Richard Urtz' was killed at agradecrosssingat Boon- { ville, April 9, 1906, while returning to I his home in Lewis county, some 15 ] miles from Boonville. With him was one John Mattis. The accident occurred near Barber's mill and at apoint whe it is claimed the deceased did not have a clear and unobstructed view of the track. Urtz left surviving a widow and two little children. A third child was born soon after the father's death. The complaint alleges.that the train which struck decedent was run- ning at an excessive rate of speed and that proper signals of the approach j were not given. i It appears that -about a week Urtz 's death, Claim Agent McCormick called on the widow and prepared papers for her appointment as administratrix of her husband's estate, promising to investigate the case and call again in the hope of bringing abont a substantial settlement. Later he reported the acci- dent to his higher officials and obtained a check payable to Mrs. Urtz for $2,- 250. A few days after he called upon her again, stating that he had exam- ined the case and found she had little if any chance of recovery, but $hat the company had agreed to compensate her for the loss of the team and wagon and if she would accept $500 he was author- ized to effect a settlement at that figure. The complaint alleges that Mrs. ' Urtz was unadvised as to her legal] rights or the true circumstances of the accident and that, relying upon McCor- ick- 2 s^tatement& of-fact^and a& ta the^ attitude of the company, she finally signed a release and accepted what he told her correctly set forth the terms of the settlement. But since she has discovered that the terms as set forth in the release were $2,250, rather than the terms as set forth to her. After obtaining Mrs. Urtz's signa- ture to the release, McCormick forged her nlame to the back of the check and subsequently deposited it to his own credit in the Watertown National bank. The complaint alleges that after the railroad company learned of the fraud practiced upon Mrs. Urtz they received back from McCormick $1,750 which he had appropriated to his own use. Defendant's answer admits the killing but denies the company's liability on account thereof. It also admits that McCormick settled the claim as stated, and seta up a release executed by Mrs. Urtz as a defense to the action. It is claimed that McCormick misrepresented to and deceived defendant by stating that he had applied the check which they gave him to the purpose for which it was intended. The case will probably be com pie ted and given to the jury to-day. A case of somewhat simliar char- acter, brought by one John C. Duquette, was tried at the last term-of Jefferson county court before Judge Edgar C. Emerson and a jury, resulting in a verdict for plaintiff. years in prison for grand larceny.
