He said that on March 28, 1895, he and the late William Home attended the ice boat races at Kingston, the trip being made with horse and cutter, and the route was around Mile Tree -Point, where ice seldom forms. On April 24, in the same year, he and Mr. Horne drove from the island t\ the main land on the ice. This hap- pened thirty-five years ago, and never since then has there been ice strong enough to cross on at the late dace mentioned in 1895. MAY DANCE.

Grapotte is man- ager, has recently installed a new Stromberg Carlson switchboard. This >>iece of equipment is one of the latest iypes and will add much to the speed and service of the local company. Calls can now be put through quicker and the voices may be heard more clear and distinctly. The new switchboard is equipped so that by making a few minor changes central could be called by merely lifting the receiver from the hook, but as many of the company's sub- scribers reside in the country, which would necessitate • both systems, Mr. Grapotte has decided to continue the old method of calling central by ring- ing. Another addition to the service is about a mile of new cable, which will enable the local exchange to serve many more patrons in the village. FOR SALE.

The meeting, which will be the last one until after the summer months, was fairly well at- tended, and was a very pleasant affair. The program opened with a vocal solo by Mrs. Charles G.

Oongdon, publisher of the Watertown Times, and E. N.

SEEBER, Cashier MffIMM Uncle Philander, Jr. an in jog Steady •usy season Cold weather and snow prevented the practice games the Cape baseball team was to have played against Clarkson Tech. and St. Lawrence University last Friday and Saturday afternoons. The weather was better on Sunday, however, and Coach Gault had the squad at the fair grounds for a workout. About twenty players re- ported and after a warming up en- gaged in a practice game. The local team made a good show- ing in the county league last year, and from present indications will do even better this season. Besides the regulars of last year, manager Gerard has signed up several other players who will greatly strengthen the team and enable the Cape to make a serious bid for championship honors. To-day (Wednesday) the team is in Canton, where the postponed game with St. Lawrence will be played. The locals will be handicapped as several of their players will not be able to make the trip. However, it is expect- ed that the game will be a good one. On Sunday, May 4, the locals will play an exhibition practice game at Dexter. Dexter, winners in their division last year, has another strong team, and a good fast game can be expected. The team is greatly indebted to J. L. Johnstone for the new warm-up jackets he recently purchased foi them. These jackets are heavy, blue suede-cloth with a white monogram on the left side, and give the team a very pleasing appearance. With the addition of these jackets the Cape will not only be one of the strongest and best trained teams in the league, but they will also be the best dressed. ©siere new Mrs. Maurice Emory, of Cape Vin- cent, spent Saturday with Mrs. H.

ROSE SHOEMAKER Cape Vincent New York According to the report of the census,' just completed by Mrs. J. Harry Grapotte, the village of Cape Vincent has lost 15 inhabitants since January 1, 1920. The population ten years ago was 913, and at the present time it is 898. There were four farms included in the village enumeration, as follows: John L. Johnstone, Frank J. Wiley, Jacob Putnam and John E. Rieribeck. When the state census was taken in 1925'Cape Vincent had a population of 946. Since that time the loss has been 48. .The census for the district outside the town is being taken by Mrs. Roy Stanley and is not yet completed. £ Ire Department The annual meeting of the Cape Vincent fire department was held last Thursday evening with a fair at- tendance of the members. The re- ports of the secretary and treasurer were rendered, and showed that the department was in first-class shape. The officers elected to have charge of the department were as follows: Robert Gault, Chief Engineer. Harry I. Allen, First Assistant. \Ned\ Allen, Second Assistant. At the regular meeting of the board of directors, to be held Mon- day evening, May 12, a secretary and treasurer will be chosen. DEALER Mr. Farmer— We would like the opportunity to supply you with what SEED GRAINS you may need this season. We have seed of all kinds—all guaranteed to germinate—and can give you prompt service. Come in and let's talk it over. OUR GRIST MILL WILL OPERATE ON TUESDAYS AND SATURDAYS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. The local fire department held its annual meeting last Thursday eve- ning and selected Robert Gault chief engineer, and as his assistants Harry Allen and \Ned\ Allen were chosen. These men have seen service in the department for some time and are familiar with its workings,- and I for one can see no reason why, under their direction, the efficiency of the 'department should not be sustained. Of course, you are aware that the new officers can not do it all—they must have help. And to this end I say it is up to the residents to offer the firemen all. the assistance they can. The boys stand ready to do all they can if a fire occurs at your home •—-so it is up to you to help the fire- men in any way possible. Well, I noticed that the Franklin free show got away to a good start Tuesday night, the Firemen's hall be ing filled almost to capacity. The company will be here for two weeks, and I predict a record attendance each night. In Cape Vincent, as elsewhere, a free entertainment usually draws the crowd. The fact that this show is free, is not the drawing card. The real, honest-to-goodness attraction is Ed- ward White, the manager, who, when it comes to talking, has everything put in the discard. It is not merely talk that he deals out, but he gives some good, practical, every day, com- mon sense, and in a way that creates no offence. The object of the company is to sell the Franklin remedies, of course, but at the same time they give you an entertainment that is worth a half dollar of any man's money. They will sell you the medicine if you want it— if you don't, well, that's your busi- ness. You are invited to the enter- tainment, anyway. Ucticle Philander, Jr. LOCAL THESPIANS TO PRESENT PLAY Under the direction of Mrs. Charles G. Allen local talent is rehearsing the four-act play, \An Arizona Cowboy,\ which will be presented at the Fire- men's hall on May 20 and 21 for the benefit of the Presbyterian Sunday school. Full particulars will be given later. \HERE LIES—\ A newspaper, in speaking of a de- ceased citizen, said: \We knew him as Old Ten Per Cent, the more he had the less he spent; the more he got the less he lent; he's dead 1 —we don't know where he went—but if his sold to heaven is sent, he'll own the harp and charge 'em rent.\—Chicago Prini ing and Advertising News.
