A. KARL ARTHUR, Publisher. LQWVILLE, N. Y. f , AUGUST 22,1929. VOLUME 70. NO. GLENF1ELD SWEPT BY LIYEY BLAZE Michael J. Fries Hotel and Barn, Spencer Burdick and W. F, Herrtclr General Stores and Residence of Mrs. Nettie Betta Burned to the Foundation*. Glenfield eight railea south of Low- ville, was visited by the most destruc- tive fire in its history Tuesday morlng, wiping out the Michael J. Friee hotel, the hotel barn, general stores of W. F. Herrlck' and Spencer Buirdtek just west of the hotel, and the residence of Mrs. Nettie Betts, east of the hotel. The fire originated in the hotel barn and was discovered about 4 a. m. Its origin is-charged to a tramp, or tramps sleeping in the barn. The fire had gain- ed great headway before being discov- ered and spread rapidly to the hotel and other buildings, all of which were of wooden construction and were burned to the foundations. Further spread of the flames was prevented by the LowvlUe and Lyons Falls fire departments. Glenfleld has no fire equipment except the privately own- ed equipment of the Keystone Wood and Chemical and Lumber plant and the PaPro factory. Hawley hotel ad- joining the burned area on the west, was saved and the fire stopped at the Betts residence, not far removed from the Catholic church on the eastern ei»d. With the exception of a small quantity saved from the Herrlck store, all stock and furnishings of both the stores and hotel were destroyed and nothing remains of over half of Glen- fleld's business sect ion,but stone cellar walls and smouldering woodwork.

Rapid progress is being made on the village of the St. Joseph Lead Company, which is under construction tin the Sylvia Lake mining Bectlon of *he town of Fowler, St. Lawrence county. All operations are visible from the road leading from Fowler village to Balmafs Corners, and many auto- mobiles make the trip each day. Watchmen are stationed at all points on the grounds of the St. Joseph Lead Company and visitors are politely in- formed that tramping about the prem- ises is not allowed. All entrances are marked with no admission signs, but these are sometimes . disregarded on Sundays, when no work la carried on. The name of the new village Is be- ing publicly discussed. By common consent the village is known as St. Joe, altho many people feel that the name Balmat is more appropriate, commemorative of the well known Balmat family that formerly owned the farm where the village is being built and the mill erected.

The Black River Regulating Board has placed gauges at different points in Black river for the purpose of measuring the rise and fall of water. The location of the gauges are as fol- lows: Near the bridge above Greig, at the Glenfleld bridge, above and one below the Otter creek dam, above and below the Bush's Landing dam, at Beach's bridge, at Illlngsworth bridge, at the Castorland bridge, at the mouth of the creek near the Fred Binglfi farm, at the Carthage dam and near the mouth of Deer river. It is expected that the records obtained will be useful in determining how much rainfall is necessary to cause overflowing of the river flats. S. F. Virkler has volunteered to read, daily, the gauge at Castorland, George B. Wilder will record the river levels at Beach's bridge and Bush's Landing and Victor Virkler will take care of the gauge at the Illlngsworth bridge. The other gauges will be read at Intervals by representatives of the Black River Regulating Board or of the Farm Bureau.

Although the matter of parking has assumed the proportions of a problem in almost every city in this country, it is by no means a new worry for municipal powers that be. At least it is not in Watertown, where the vil- lage ordinances of 1855 contain this provision: \Any person who shall suffer, cause or permit his horse or ox, wagon or other carriage to stand on any cross x>r sidewalk within the said village of Watertown shall forfeit and pay a pen- alty of $1 for each offense.\ It will be observed that no time lim- it was set in the old ordinance, Today one may park ah automobile on the streets of Watertown for half an hour before he becomes subject to a $1 fine. Watertown also had a speed limit in 1855, and any person who drove thru the village streets faster than four «niles an hour could be fined $5. A similar penalty was exacted for leav- ing a horse untied in- the street. Rescued From Fourth Lake. Cyril Gushue, Utica, was rescued from Fourth Lake Friday evening about 9:80. He was picked up by a party of moonlight riders, as he was floundering about in the water, trying to tow a canoe. He had been paddling alone, having left the Minnowbrook dock about 8, and was overturned by waves from a passing motor boat. Mr. Gushue was atempting to swim to shore, but was entirely exhausted and stiff with the cold when taken into the motor boat, owned and oper- ated by Leon Burnap.

Lipe Craft Sinks Quickly Rogers said he felt certain all occu- pants of Lipe's speed craft were drowned. Members of the excursion party said that at the moment of the cra,sh of the crafts they saw a woman either hurled or leap from Lipe's craft. The Lipe boat went down almost at once. The Thousand Islander, one of sev- eral excursion boats operated „ by . its owners, was on Its return trip, and was anly a mile from its home dock when struck. Some few of the passengers tried to swim ashore. Most of those on this craft lost their money, luggage and much of their clothes when it went down. W.

The attendance on Tues- day, the opening day, was somewhat below that of last year, due to farm- ers being engaged In harvesting their\ crops, but yesterday they bid adieu to the call of the farm and with their families swarmed to Forest Park. All things considered the third week in August is too early for the .county fair and we believe it would be to the advantage of all concerned to return to the last week in August, regardless of conflicting with the State fair at Syracuse.
