T he Dundee Observer says; “ It is pos­ sible that no fair will be held this year, because of the Pan-American Exposition. It is quite certain, too, that unless the race track is improved, future fairs in Dundee may be postponed indefinitely, as the leading horse owners have declined to enter the racing events while the track exists in its present condition.” T he Geneva Gazette has changed hands.

After a short stop at Fort Niag­ ara he went directly to the Philippines, where he served for about eight months, being invalided home In October last, and soon after received his discharge. Dys- intery, which he had contracted in the service, was complicated with other trou­ bles, and all that medicine could do, either here or at Rochester hospitals, was of no avail. William Sanderson, of Friend, was prostrated by the extreme heat on Friday last. He wai unconscious for several hours, and at first hie condition was con­ sidered critical. At last accounts he was reported to be recovering. On the same day Herbert Blood, of this village, sus­ tained a sunstroke, but was soou relieved by prompt medical attention. George Titus .

Irving Dean, ag2d 17 years, son of Mrs. Eugene Hyatt, who resides about one atd one-half miles north of Benton Center, was drowned on the aficrnoon of the 30th u l t , while bathing with companions iu South­ erland’s mill pond in that vicinity. Get­ ting into a deep place beyond his depth and being unable to swim, he sank to the bottom before his companions could res­ cue him. About an hour elapsed from the time of the accident before the body was taken from the water. Surrogate's Coart. The Weather. The weather during the past week has been blisteringly hot— unprecedently so for late June and early July, During the daytime the mercury has ranged from 8o° to 100 in the shade, and has fallen but little at night. Sleep under the most favorable circumstances has been well nigh impossible. Humanity has contin­ ually sweltered, while there has been great suffering in the cities, with many resulting deaths. The weather observers, who have always given us more or less of “ mean ” temperature, have broken the record in that line during the past week, aud are not inclined to make any prom­ ises of immediate better behavior. Daring the past quarter the Surrogate's Court has passed upon the following es­ tates : Ichabod Andrews, Starkey, real estate, (7.000, peisonal (iS.ooo; Stephen W.

The daisies and ferns which decorated the platform were in harmony with the green of the floor covering, and the combination gave a most refreshing suggestion of Loolness, though as a matter of fact the evening was stiflingly hot. At the right of the stage were seated the faculty of the Aca­ demy and the Board of Education. The chairs on the left were occupied by mem­ bers o f the class as each finished hie or her oration. 1900 claims to have taken the lead of any class before graduated from Penn Yan Academy in regard to numbers and scholarship, but ’01 outnum­ bers the preceding class by two members and its record for scholarship is of a high order. Of the 25 members of the class, 21 delivered orations. Much can be said in praise of the orations, both as to sub­ ject matter aud composition. Without exception the delivery was easy and with­ out embarrassment or affectation. Some of them are particularly worthy of men­ tion, on account of originality of thought and expression. After the valedictory, Superintendent Jay Crlssey, in a short address to the class, said that the valedictorian had well ex­ pressed his thoughts ; that parting with promise of meeting in the near future was sad enough, but that the patting which came with the finishing of the school years, with the certainty that the ways of the class will be widely parted, and that the bond of mutual endeavor which for the past four years has united teachers aud scholars has now to be broken, is altogether sad. With au ex­ pression of pride in this, his youngest class, and words of praise and admoni­ tion, Mr. Crissey commended *oi to the president o f the board, Hon. John S. Shep­ pard. After a few preliminary remarks, Mr. Sheppard said that the class of *oi might claim the honor of having been the first class to graduate from the Penn Yan Academy in the twentieth century ; that commencement, though it meant the end of school life to a few, it meant to all the beginning of life in real earnest. To those who intended to pass on to institu­ tions of higher education their high school attainments were only a founda­ tion. That probably there were mem­ bers of the class who would be less for­ tunate than their fellows who, perhaps, iu after years, in their struggle for exist­ ence, would not be able to stand intel­ lectually with those who, through favor­ ing circumstances, had been able to avail themselves of the broadening advantages of college life. Mr. Sheppard counseled that the class ties and the closer ties of (r endship should not be broken on that account. Wishing the members o f class '01 a good-bye and a God-speed, Mr. Sheppard announced that the diploma8 would be presented by the president of the class, Mr. M. Vincent Quinn. Pleas­ ant interruptions during the evening were a violin solo by Mr. Bert Hopkins, and a vocal duet by Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Matsh. The social gaieties of the class during commencement week were a lawn party given in honor of class '01 by Mrs. Anna Briggs Wheeler at her home on East Main street on Thursday evening; the Junior Promenade on Friday evening, and the class picnic, which was held at Elect ric Park on Saturday.

The Board of Village Trustees are con­ sidering the advisability of the village owning its own electric light plant. At a meeting of the Board on Friday evening last the representative of a firm engaged in constructing electric light plants was present and addressed the meeting. He stated that a plant could be constructed which would give as good service as that the village is now receiving for (20,000, this estimate including the necessary building, a new one hundred horse power boiler, large dynamo, etc. Some years ago, in favoring municipal lighting, the E xpress gave the results of such lighting in several villages and small cities, the cost per arc light ranging from (40 to (60. Should the taxpayers of Penn Yan decide in favor of the scheme, the plant would probably be erected near the waterworks pump house, on the premises owned by We Sell Pianos and Organs. Our stock is veiy complete. Indeed, we believe that we have a better line of high grade Pianos to give our customers the choice of than any firm in Western New York. This is saying a lot, hut if you investigate you will find that it is true. At present we have some square pianos at very low prices. CORNWELL BROTHERS. N. S.

Y . 1 Board of Trustees. Jefferson Crosier, one of the oldest and best known residents of the town of Sen­ eca, Ontario County, was killed on Thurs­ day morning at the Northern Central railroad crossing at Hall’s Corners, near No. Niue. Dr. Weyburn, coroner of Ge -1 neva, was notified, and repaired, at once, to the spot and returned to Geneva with the body about noon. After making ex­ amination, the coroner decided that death was caused by accident and was un­ avoidable. It seems that Mr. Crosier, who was about 80 years of age, and very deaf, was driving across the track when a sgecial, containing the general manager, superintendent, and other officials of the road, reached there at a high rate of speed. It was found that the whistle was blown properly, but the old gentleman either did not hear it or thought he could cross the track in time to avoid the train. The buggy and horse were both struck by the pilot. Mr. Crosier’s body was carried a long distance, about 125 feet, and was thrown to one side. The head was crushed, and death must have been in­ stantaneous. The horse was killed aud the buggy completely demolished. Mr. Crosier was born about one mile from Hall’s Corners, and his entire life has been spent at or near No. Nine. He was a member of the Baptist Church at Gor­ ham, and besides his widow he leaves one daughter, Mrs. J. S. Whitney, two sons, William and Frank, of California, three brothers, T. Wilson Crosier, Adam and Henderson Crosier, and one sister, Mrs. E. S. Dixon, of Hall’s Corners. O U R Cut Price Sale of S H O E S «:.i 01 •:» •-.I ♦ > R0ENKE \ commences 9 Friday, July 5th.
