The village of Branchport was visited by a terrible fire Tuesday morning. About 3 o’clock John Batteson, who has been In charge of the Swarta Hotel, discovered a fire in the northeast corner of the Weaver block, which had once been used as a drug store by Charles Bean, of Gen­ eva, but had been vacant for some time. He sounded the alarm, and the residents turned out en masse. A high wind pre­ vailed at the time, and but little could be done to check the flames. The entire block was soon destroyed, together with most of its contents. The flames also spread to the Commercial Hotel and the dwelling o f Edgar Matteson, which were also burned, with the greater part of their contents. In the Weaver Block, which was a wooden structure,!was the hardware store of Ed. C. Brown, the barber shop of Edgar Mothersill, and a number o f offices in the second story, including the tele­ phone office. Weaver’s Hall, or Opera House, occupied the third story of the Weaver block, at the south end of the structure. The Commercial Hotel, owned,by Mr. George Swarts, was closed for the season about six weeks ago, and was to have been remodeled and reopened about May 1st. The front portion of the hotel was used as a lunch room, but was not con­ ducted by Mr. Swarts. It was only by great effort that the flames were prevented from communi­ cating with the hotel barns and spreading to the mills on the east. It is said that in the vacant store were several carriages and buggies consigned to Edgar fcC. Brown by John iConklin & Son, of this village. A call for aid was sent, to the Penn Yan Fire Department, but they did not re­ ceive it in time to render any service. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is believed to have been of incendiary origin. As far as could be.ascertained last even­ ing, there was no insurance on the Weav­ er block, which was owned by George S. Weaver, of Branchport. Edward C. Brown, had an insurance of (3,000 on his stock, which was divided equally between thd insurance agencies of M. F. Hobart & Son and Bradley T. Mallory, of this village. Mr. Mallory also had (1,700 on the Commercial Hotel, and James C. Goodspeed, of Penn Yan had (500 on the furniture in the hotel.

A lbert E nos , aged 6 9 years, died at his home in the village of Branchport at an early hour Thursday morning, of heart disease. Thursday he drove to Pulteney and back. He formerly lived in Pratts- burg, and for many years he drove the stage from Prattsburg to Gibson’s land­ ing, on Keuka Lake. He is survived by his wife, Ella, and one son, Cyrus, who is one of the rural deliverymen out of Branchport. He also is survived by two brothers, Marcus, of Branchport, and Lu­ cas, of Wheeler. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, and the burial made at Prattsburg. T h e telephone which has been in the County Clerk’s office for a year or more was removed by the company on Satur­ day. The reason for the removal is that the Board of Supervisors have twice re­ fused to pay for ite use. During the past year it has been paid for by private sub­ scriptions. A telephone is a great con­ venience in the office and the county should pay for It. We believe in econo­ my in public affairs as well as in private, but there is such a thing as expensive economy, as paradoxical as the expres­ sion may seem. The Clerk’s office more than pays for itself. This does not justify extravagance in its management, but it does warrant expenditure for necessary and time-saving conveniences. T he P. Y .

SPRAGUE’S A F redonia correspondent of the Buf­ falo Express sums up this year’s grape harvest in the Chautauqua belt as fol­ lows : u In spite of the ravages of the leaf-hoppers, grapevine fidia, warm wea­ ther, cold weather, scarcity of help, and difficulty of getting cars, the grape sea­ son of 1901 passes into history as break­ ing all records for the last ten years in the Chautanqua grape belt. The»crop was abundant, prices were good, and sales easy to make. Speaking of the output for this year, a grower said he was quite sure that the 30,000 acres in the nine grape-growing towns had produced at least .192,000,000 pounds or. 8,coo car­ loads of grapes, in addition to 1,500,000! gallons of wine. That vast yield has. brought into the lake towns o f the county at least (2,500,000. Grape land has re­ covered from the slump it has experi­ enced for five years owing to the ex­ tremely low prices. Had not the year 1901 been extraordinarily good, bank­ ruptcy would now have been difficult to avoid. High prices, however, have saved the vineyardists, and the future never looked better.” More than 100 styles Rockers are1 shown at Knapp’s. ______ BASKETS /- BASKETS / •' U P - S T A I R S 99 DEPARTM ENT • • HOLLOWELL 6k WIS E . • 90c. buys one dollar’s worth of furni­ ture at Wagener Bros/ _____ Sewing machines, oreans, locks, keys, umbrellas, knives, scissors, or anything that needs repairing, done at Room 3, Arcade block.
