Mr. Henderson named a nominal sum as the legal consideration, ageneious act which is undoubtedly ap­ preciated by the Seminary management. S ome days since Bessie Hayes, a little girl attending the Liberty street school, rode to that place upon her bicycle, which, as usual, was left outside. When the session of school was over it had dis­ appeared, and it was not discovered in whose possession it was until Saturday, when a wheel which answers the descrip­ tion was found to be in the possession of some youngsters. Some difficulty will be experienced in recovering it, owing to difficulty in identifying it. IT was reported last week that the as­ signees of Partridge’s Bank, at Oyid, had found, unexpectedly, assets amounting to $400,000, or more, which would en­ able this bank to pay its depositors at least 80 per cent, of their claims. If the report be true, it follows that without the unexpected find the depositors would have received substantially nothing. Fishing is unusually good this year, and marvellous fish stories abound.

A n exchange truly remarks that u the home-grown, hand spanked, bare-footed, hard fisted country boy, makes a much better fighter in the battle of life than does the pampered, high-collared, creased trousered youth of our towns and villag­ es, whose clothes have always been dust­ ed with a\ whisk broom instead of a shingle.” W il l i a m H, K in n e y , of Dundee, while recently assisting his men in blow­ ing out apple-tree stumps, had a narrow escape from instant death from the ex­ plosion of a dynamite cartridge.

A NEW LO T OF ried BEST QUALITY, at 15 cts. per M r . Frank Wristpin, of the Henry R. Worthington pump works, completed the repairs on the pumps at the water works pumping station last Thursday. The pumps were found somewhat worn, neces­ sitating some new parts. The four pumps had new brass linings and also new valves. The engines, valves, and rings were all refitted, valve rods and connection made new. They are considered now to be in as good condition as when new. It is predicted by those who claim to know that the coat of repairs will be saved in coal the first year. J une 14 n ext will be the one hundred and twenty-fourth anniversary of the Stars and Stripes, our national emblem. The Grand Army of the* Republic’s com­ mittee in charge of patriotic education is doing all it can to arouse an interest in that day. The State superintendent of public instruction advises that, wherever practical, the schools co operate with the Grand Army of the Republic in its efforts to secure a general observance of the day. As the day dawns on June 14th let the morning breeze kiss the fluttering flag from every house-top, and as the school bell sounds the assembly hour let there be glad hearts among the children, as it is made their festal day to sing praises to the Flag and to cheer it as it floats in the air above, a token of their noble birth. T he Fourth of July this year will be the 280th anniversary of the founding of the town of Natick, Mass., by John Eliot, the famous apostle to the Indians, and on July 3d, the day before the celebration, there is to be a grand gathering of the descend­ ants of John Eliot himself, who have scattered into many different and widely separated parts of the country, and call themselves, indifferently, Eliot, Elliot, and Elliott. This will be the second re­ union of the kind for the members of this family, and a number of New Yorkers are to attend. The first was held in 1875, at Guilford, Conn., where nearly 200 per­ sons bearing this name met and dined, and listened to addresses and various ex­ ercises. Our venerable and esteemed townsmen, Lambert V. Elliott, is undoubt­ edly a member of the family. His grand­ parents were early residents of Connecti­ cut. H erman B. M athews , Abe V.

DIstrict*Court, at Buffalo, on June 18, 1901, to show cause, if any they have, why the prayers of the said petitioners should not be granted. C harles C offin died at his residence on Head Street, in this village, on Satur­ day morning last, aged 65 years. The de­ ceased had been in poor health for some time, suffering from Brights disease. For several years he conducted a grocery store on Main Street, near Head. He had filled the office of village trustee and was a charter and honorary member of the Sheldon Hose Company. He leaves a a widow. T here are few, if any, in whom we cannot find something to esteem if we search for i t ; but we often allow their wrong doing to form so thick a cloud over their whole nature that all the bright spots are hidden from our view. If we had more of that charity which bclieveth all things and hopeth all things, we should be quicker to detect the .good, slower to mark the evil, anxious to bring out and develop the former, and glad to cast the mantle of silence over the latter.

B ecause you can see no tents in your trees, don’t jump at the conclusion that there are no caterpillars. The forest tree caterpillar doesn’t do business that way. If you see the end of a branch with the leaves partly eaten, examine it and you will find a long line of little caterpillars half an inch in length, or, perhaps, all bunched together somewhere on the limb, especially at evening, or early in the morning. A few drops of kerosene will quickly do them up. That is the sort that crawls over everything and makes all the trouble. They are worse than the tent caterpillars, as they are more difficult to locate while young. When they are dis­ turbed on the branch they begin, as young as they are, to swing of into the air, on a thread of their own manufac­ ture, and are, sometimes, blown off by the wind, and thus are scattered. You re­ member what a nuisance they were last year; be wise in time and go for them at once .—Dansville Breeze. WOODVILLE, on Canandaigua Lake, was named In honor of Captain Allen Wood, now living in retirement in this village. In 1856 Captain Wood and a younger brother, a locomotive engineer, built a steamboat for Canandaigua Lake, towards the cost of which Canandaigua citizens paid $1,000. They operated the boat very successfully for several years, when they sold it at a handsome advance. The name of the steamer was the “Joseph Wood,” in honor of the father of the owners, then a large and influential land owner at Farmington. Captain Wood came from Canandaigua Lake to Lake Keuka and built the “G. R. Youngs,” the name of which was changed to the “ Steuben,” which was worn out in ser­ vice. Mr. Wood also built the “ Keuka,” which was run on Lake Keuka for a few seasons and removed via Crooked Lake canal, then in operation, and returned a few years later as the “ Stranger.” The “ Stranger” was afterwards transferred to % other waters .—Hammondsport Herald .

The room was crowded to its fullest capacity, and some were unable to gain entrance. The stage was handsomely draped with the stars and stripes as a background, and on either end and on stands in front were large quantities of lilacs and palms. The programme, pub­ lished in the E xpress last week, was smoothly executed. The speaking was interspersed with music, finely rendered. The contestants were seven in number, as follows: William Barber Lown, Edith Julia Lockwood, Charles Edward Taylor, Castella Jeannette Hobart, Henry T. Markland, Elmira Isabel Barden, Mae Winship. The judges were H. B. Larra- bee, Dean of Keuka College; A. C. Sim­ mons, principal of Falrport High School; and H. J . Walker, principal of Waverly High School.

The follow-, ing is an extract from an Ithaca daily, of May 24: The funeral of Caroline Corson, wife of Prof. Hiram Corson, was held from the Church of the Immaculate Conception this morning. The ceremonies were most impressive, and the church was fill­ ed with the members of the university faculty and their families. Solemn high mass of Requium was celebrated, the Rev. Father Lapham, of St. Beuard’s Seminary, Rochester, aud a graduate of Cornell, class ’84, officiating. Father Lapham, as celebrant, was assisted by two priests and a deacon.

The County Treasurer will make the col­ lection and the Supervisors will apportion the tax among the tax districts contribut­ ing the funds. No district having no banking institution will receive any of the proceeds. The new law provides that on or before July ist of each year the of­ ficials of all State and National banking institutions shall file complete sworn statements with the local assessors and also with the State Board of Tax Commis­ sioners.

Hewson, whose flouring mill on Head Street was partially destroyed by fire on the morning of the 19th inst., has received an anonymous letter, a copy of which is as follows : Dear Old Bob: I am glad that your mill b u rned; but if you would act differ­ ently yon would save yourself more ser­ ious trouble. I will assure you that if you don’t, you will suffer a much greater loss in this world and a more serious one in the world hereafter—the loss of your soul. Believe me, what I say is true, old Bob. You have a great many enemies who hate you ; you are so mean. If you build your old mill again it will go clean to the ground next time. All that will burn, and your house, too. Believe me, what I say is true, old Bob. So good bye, dear old Bob. The letter was written in a irregular, back hand, the writer evidently having taken great pains to disguise his writing. It is reported, however, that Mr. Hewson thinks he knows who wrote it, and the matter may be investigated. The letter was enclosed in a plain, white envelope, and mailed at the local postoffice, with a penny stamp. A piece of ordinary Ma­ nila wrapping paper was folded around the letter before placing it in the en­ velope. T he school money for the town ot Jer­ usalem has been placed in the hands of the supervisor. T here are three great truths that the American people ought to have branded upon their breasts with a red hot iron, ■says an exchange. First, that education and talents are useless without character. Second, that happiness is attained by lim­ iting our wants rather than satisfying our desires. Third, that the mere possession of wealth does not entitle a man to re­ spectability. In almost every walk of life there have been great women. But has there ever been a woman who has reached the very highest pinnacle in any field ? In the June '^Cosmopolitan Ella Wheeler Wilcox answers this question in the negative, and declares that even in the essentially feminine vocations of cooking, dress­ making, and millinery, men excel wo­ men, “ Women,” says Mrs. Wilcox, “ have not the concentration which gives a clear perspective. They lack system and patience, and ate distracted by de­ tails or turned aside by vanity.” The Civil Service Commission is badly In need 0/ a number of women cooks for toe various Indian schools, the pay rang­ ing from $35 to $45 a month, and “ keep.” Tbere are now ninety cooks under civil service, and fifty assistant cooks. They cook for and instruct Indian girls in the art of civilized cookery. They manage the entire culinary department, attend to the buying, and so on. One of the chief requirements is that a woman shall have practical experience in managing a house­ hold, no education at all is required, the principal thing being to know what to cook, and how to cook it, and to be able to impart this knowledge to the young Indians.

McAdams’ Shoe Store. In spite of the rain the audience room of the Presbyterian church was comfort ably filled last Sunday evening, the occa­ sion of the Sunday memorial service. The altar was patriotically decorated with a number of American flags, the Post Sloan standard, and a stack of arms. The members of the G. A. R. were pres­ ent in a body, as were the sister organiza­ tions—Phil Sheridan Circle and Woman’s Relief Corps. The many gray heads among the veterans gave the impression that the perspective was a long looking back over many years and much experi­ ence, and that, for some of them at least, the promises for many anniversaries of Memorial Sunday in the future were un­ substantial. The musical numbers were with reference to the sentiment of the occasion. “ And the gentleness hath made me great,” from Psalm 18, verse 36, was the theme of a very able address by Rev. D. Henry Palmer to the veterans es­ pecially, in which he presented war with its horrors and its pathos, and the havoc made by war upon the character of those who have not the moral fibre to resist evil; and those upon whom eth environ­ ments of war have the effect of deaden­ ing the moral sense. Another point of the speaker was the crystalization which was the result when soldiers possessed the moral qualities which enabled them to rise above the sordidness and misery of their surroundings. That there some­ time comes a crisis in the affairs of a na­ tion which makes it a clear duty to en­ gage in war, was a strong point made by the speaker. The heroes of our Civil War and the patriotism which made men, regardless of personal ends, equal to any sacriBce, made a -splendid climax to Dr. Palmer’s every way interesting and ap­ propriate address. T h e Court. The May term of the Supreme Court, trial term, which convened on the 20th inst., adjourned on the 2ad. It was a re­ markably short and qniet term. The fol­ lowing cases of the civil calendar were disposed of since our last report: Hannah Johnson against Anna Denniston. Thomas Carmody for plaintiff; M. A. Leary for defendant. An action for alleged slander. Verdict for plaintiff in the sum of $145. The par­ ties live in Dresden. Sarah McReynolds against Sarah McReynolds. W. H. Flero for plaintiff; Thomas Carmody for defendant. Plaintiff non-suited. In this action the I plaintiff sought to establish ownership of certain property, the deed to which Is held by the defendant. The grand jury indictments were as fol­ lows; Against John Conroy, two indict­ ments; assault in first degree, and burg­ lary in third degree. Conroy is the man who was shot while mixed up with the re­ cent attempt to burglarize the store of D, C. Denniston & Son at Dresden. When arraigned he pleaded not guilty. Ball was fixed at $i,ooo, and Calvin J. Huson, E6q., was assigned to defend him. Against William I. Hubbard and Arthur Conklin, burglary in the third degree and larceny, it being alleged that they en­ tered George Smalley’s saloon and ab­ stracted money from the cash drawer. Hubbard was arraigned, pleaded not guilty, and was held in $500 ball. Calvin J. Huson, Esq., was also assigned as his counsel. Conklin, who has been out on , was not arraigned.

John Mosher, in the employ of the Potter Lumber company, sustained a se­ rious accident on Friday evening last. He was engaged in gathering kindling wood for a fire, and on breaking a cedar shingle over his knee a splinter flew into his right eye. At first he did not con­ sider the injury serious, but on Saturday the eye pained him considerably and he applied a wash. As the condition of the eye continued to grow worse he consult­ ed a local physician, who pronounced the eye blind. Sunday Mr. Mosher went to Rochester and consulted Dr. Bis- sell, a specialist in eye diseases, who ad­ vised him to go to the Homeopathic Hos­ pital for a few days' treatment, and he is now at that institution. The injury consisted of a puncture iu the outer sack, and the splinter also pierced the lens. By the use of a glass prescribed by the doctor sight is restored, but without it the eye is blind.

YOU HAVE TRIED A PAIR OF MINORS xx E A S Y S H O E S The Penn Yan Base Ball Club will play the Seneca Falls team two games of base ball on the Fair Ground on Decoration Day. The game in the forenoon will be called at 10 o’clock and the afternoon game at 3 o’clock. The grounds have been put in first-class condition by the management, and it is confidently ex­ pected that large crowds will witness both games. If they meet with support by the people of Penn Yan and vicinity, as is expected, it will be the beginning of some very interesting games which will continue throughout the summer. The home team will also play Canandai­ gua on the Fair Grounds here on Satur­ day, June ist, at 3 p. m. This is expect­ ed to be a fine game, as Canandaigua is reported to have a nine composed of very strong players. The management has concluded to make the admission 15 c e n ls ; ladies, free. The personnel of the Penn Yan nine is as follows: Garbns, c.; Hurshe, s. s., Mulve- hill, 2b.; McCauley, ib.; Costigan, 1 . f.; Pitch, 3b.; Wilson, c. f.; Stevens or Grant, r. f.; Davis, p.
