T h e B e a n M a r k e t , The market during the past week was somewhat livelier than it was the week previous, but decidedly dull in compari­ son with the corresponding week of last year. The only encouraging feature is the materially higher prices. It is now believed by good judges that the aggre­ gate crop of the Lake Keuka region will not teach 50 per cent, of an average. Some Hammondsport dealers are mak­ ing heavy purchases in the Pnlteney sec­ tion at $40 per ton for Concords, and $55 for Niagaras. Prices In Penn Yan are substantially as follows: Concords, 8c.; Delawares, 5c.; Niagaras, 13c. R a ilroad T im e T a b les .

BELL will open a meat market on Saturday next in the basement atore on Elm street occupied last winter by Owen Hoban. Mr. Bell announces that he will sell meats at aa low prices as possible. Beans that are pulled and have been lying on the ground during the recent heavy rains are rotting badly, and many farmers will lose heavily in consequence. Should dry weather come soon those that have not been pulled will be saved. Prices this week are somewhat higher than they were last week, and are as fol­ lows: Red kidneys, $235: marrows, $2 25; white kidneys, $2.00; mediums, $1.65 ; pea beans, $1.75. L e c tu r e s b y H o m e T a len t . K i l l e d by the Cars. Lawrence Laughtran was run over and killed by a passenger train on the N. Y . C. & H. R. R. on Saturday, about 6.30 p. m., three miles south of Dundee. Laugh­ tran was a single man, 55 years of age, a farm hand, and had worked for Lee Cran­ dall, of Dundee, about three years. It appears that while intoxicated ihe laid down on the track and went to sleep. Hie head was badly crushed on the left side. Dr. Joseph T. Cox, of this village, was summoned, and after a careful inves­ tigation decided not to hold an inquest. | The deceased Is survived by one brother. The remains were Interred in Dundee.

Connim, from Prattsburg, en­ tered Rnshvllle last week, connecting with Potter Center and points south. This line is used by many farmers, and will be a great convenience as soon as fully at work. T his year the Yates County Agricul­ tural Society inaugurated a change as to the manner of paying premiums. They are mailed by the treasurer of the Socie­ ty to the parties to whom they have been awarded, which saves not a little trouble to all concerned. E vrryonb should know that the use of kerosene on maple trees for the ex­ termination of caterpillars last summer has in almost every instance proved to be the death of the former. Quite a num­ ber of trees in this village are said to be dead from this cause. L a s t week Messrs Andrews & Gristock succeeded in getting a car load of chest­ nut coal, which they are selling at $15 per ton. Even at this high price, it is said that the local dealers paid so much for the coal that they are making only a reasonable profit. T h e Geneva Evening Review , the On­ tario County News-Letter . and the Sen­ eca County News Letter , all issued from the same office in Geneva, have been purchased by the Geneva Publishing Company, and will hereafter be Demo­ cratic journals, with A. M. Hall aa editor. L ast week a party of surveyors from the office of the State Superintendent of Public Works came to town for the pur­ pose of surveying the road from the end of Elm Street to Kinney’s Corners, that highway having been selected by the Board of Supervisors for the trial of the \good roads\ experiment. M eat prices, with the exception of pork, have gone down. Western cattle raisers have been shipping stock to mar­ ket in such quantities that it is possible | John H. Johnson, president; to buy now for two or three cents a pound less than Jnly and August. Pork, how­ ever, is said to be scarce, and higher In price than for five years past. J o h n H. V b b d b r , a carpenter of this village, had a bad fall in Geneva last week, where he has been working on the Y . M. C. A. building. While engaged in putting up a scaffold a board upon which he stepped broke, and he fell to the floor, a distance o f about fifteen feet. His left arm was broken below the elbow. The Chronicle correspondent at Gage says: \On Saturday William Sheehan, of this place, while engaged in cutting corn on the farm of the Platman Bros., met with a painful accident, which will be very liable to result in a stiff ankle. He and another man were using a one-horse corn cutter of the stone-boat patterns when, from some cause, hard to account for, his leg came in contact with the knife, which cut through to the bone and entirely severed the tendons of the back of his leg near the ankle. His compan­ ion corded his leg with a rope that chanced to be at hand to stay the bleed­ ing, which was profuse, and hurried him to Dr. Lott's office at Bellota, where the wound was dressed and the patient made comfortable. Mr, Sheehan, who is an in­ dustrious man, has the sympathy of the people.\ Y . M . C . A . A u x ilia r y . The time for the election of officers occurring September 4th, it was deemed best to defer this business till October ad, as only thirteen were in attendance, while the membership is seventy -five. A plan laid by the officers of last year, oi securing for the coming year new officials resulted fairly well. All who wished to retire were succeeded as follows : Mrs. Mrs. M. W. House, first vice-president; Mrs. A, La- Moreaux, second vice-president; Mrs. James Smith, third vice-president; Mrs. P. P. Curtis, fourth vice-president ; Mrs. William C. Taylor, secretary ; Mrs. M. Stark, treasurer. A showing of funds raised to the mount of $256.41, $100 of which was voted for gymnasium appa­ ratus, and $100 to be used by the Board of Managers as they choose, while $20.61 remain in the treasury for next year's use. It is expected that Saturday, October 20th, 1902, will be the red-letter day among the Masons of this village and sur­ rounding territory, as well as the mem­ bers of the various Grand bodies who contributed to its erection, as that is the date set for the dedication of the hand­ some monument erected to the memory of the late John L. Lewis. Most Wor­ shipful Elbert Crandall, Grand Master of Masons of the State of New York, assist­ ed by the several Grand Bodies, who con­ tributed to its erection, and Milo Lodge, No. 108, F. & A. M., of this village, will participate In the services attendant thereto. • It is expected that on this occasion that all the nearby lodges will be in attend- The quarterly report of Surrogate's Clerk J.

J u s t ice of the Peace Gilbert H. Baker has rendered a decision in favor of the defendant in the case of William Wells against Seneca Carroll, which was recent­ ly tried before him. The suit was brought to collect $75, wages alleged due, and the defense was a breach of contract, the p'aintiff having hired out for a stated period and then leaving the farm before the completion of the contract. G ym n a s iu m classes at the Y . M. C. A. have been arranged as follows. Mon­ days and Wednesday—Juniors, 4.15 to 5.15 p. m,; business men, 5.15 to 6.15 p. m.; general, 8.15.

O n e day last week Henry Walbridge, of Rusbville, received a dangerous cut by having the blade of a pair of sheep shears driven into his leg below the knee, sever­ ing the large artery. He was alone at the time on T. W. Blodgett’s farm, one mile south of that village. Not realizing the seriousness of the wound he started to walk home, but fainted from lose of blood when but half way there. He was found by a neighbor, who took him to Dr. J. H. Wilkins, and the artery was taken up. His condition is considered serious. D u r i n g the recent fire on Seneca St. $85 in bills were destroyed. This money was drawn from the bank the day pre­ vious by Mrs. Carlin and placed In a trunk for the purpose of buying furniture. When the building cooled off sufficiently, the trunk was taken out, but the bills crumbled into ashes when the lid was lifted. _____ _ _____ G il b e r t D.

About 250 mem­ bers of the fraternity residing in the counties of Schuyler and Yates were in attendance. The lodge proper was insti­ tuted at 2 o’clock In the afternoon by Dis­ trict Deputy Grand Master Bradley T. Mallory, of Penn Yan, and Staff. The several degrees were conferred by the various lodges in attendance, in full foim, as follows: Initiatory degree, Juanita Lodge, of Tyrone; first degree, Keuka Lodge, of Penn Yan; second degree, Wayne Lodge, of Wayne; third degree, Canandaigua Lodge, of Watkins. The ceremonies took place in the Maccabee Hall. At the conclusion of the conferring of the various degrees about midnight an elaborate banquet was served at the Keady House. A special train was run from Penn Yan to Dundee, returning to Penn Yan at 4 o'clock a. ra. The tew lodge consists of twenty-eight members. T h e G r a p e M a r k e t . In considering substitutes for hard coal there is one bit of advice that may be ab­ sorbed with profit by householders of all grades of income. Whatever one decides to buy as fuel for the winter, whether it be haid or soft coal, oil, gas, coke, or wood, buy just at present in small quanti­ ties and for immediate use. By this means will be prevented any sharp rise in prices, due to a strong demand for this or that commodity. Give the producers and carriers time to adjust themselves to the conditions resnlting from the coal strike, and the winter's prices will, in general, not depart so widely from the normal. The practice of a little self re­ straint will thus not only work out for the benefit of others of more slender means, but will also prevent one's own pocket- book from being squeezed as heavily as would be the case should many be in­ spired with a similar desire to lay in a winter's supply immediately. There is no reason to believe that any of the sub­ stitutes for anthracite suggested will be suddenly cut off or greatly diminished, and the advice aa to preventing extrava­ gant prices will prove to be the soundest economy if generally followed.— Seneca Falls Reveille . partly in the outlet. Both brakemen were thrown Into the water, Bishop es­ caping with a wetting, and Hawley fell on some rocks.

T he families on the outskirts of the village on Lake street have for a week past been disturbed by the presence in the neighbors of undesirable characters, who have several times attempted to force an entrance to some house. On Sunday night, September 28th, the home of Samuel Miller was entered. Mrs. Mil­ ler heard some person moving about and awoke Mr. Miller, who made somewhat of an investigation of the premises with­ out success, and returned to bed. Morn­ ing revealed the fact that a door that he had not examined had been opened by pulling a staple, and that'the intruder had undoubtedly been hidden in the house while he was searching. Nothing was stolen, however. A m a n giving hie name as H. Pokor- ney, and residence in Portland, Ore., re­ cently visited th a place and solicited sub­ scriptions for the publication of all the pare food lews of different States. He also claimed to be working in harmony with the New York State pure food com­ missioners to secure national legislation on the pure food question. The Empire State Wine Company subscribed $50, but before paying the same wrote the Depart­ ment of Agriculture concerning Mr. Pokorney and his work. Commissioner Flanders replied at once that no such per­ son was known to the department. There are some very smooth schemers abroad I in the land nowadays,— Democrat A n t h r a c i t e coal is selling in Buffalo in small quantities at $5 86 per ton. In other cities the prices range from $12 to 20 per too, according to the greed of re­ tail e r s E x p ress . The above will be good news to Buffalo people, many of whom have been trying hard all sum* mer to get a little coal, without success. Just now the price of coal Is highest in cities where it is to be had .—Democrat. The \ above \ is true according to Buf­ falo papers. It was not stated that there was an abundance of coal In Buffalo, or an amount approximating thereto. But the little that has been doled out has been sold for $5 85 per ton, the dealers having a sufficient regard for the eternal fitness of things not to resort to extortion. D a v id R a r r i c k , a well-known charac­ ter about town, was arrested Saturday forenoon in the neighborhood of Keuka Park by Deputy Sheriff Lamphier, on a charge of securing money under false pretenses. Rarrick, who has but one leg, the other having been taken off by the care while he was making the right of way his bed, has periodical attacks of begging mania, and sometimes poses as a veteran. This time he had provided himself with a paper, on which appeared the names of a number of bogus subscrib­ ers, on which he was described as a de­ serving man with a wife and,several chil­ dren depending on him, and this he was using to secure further assistance. He was brought to Penn Yan by the deputy, who was aware that the whole paper was a mass of falsehood, and was held for ex­ amination by Justice of the Peace Baker. On his way to the village he managed to throw away the paper, but on the return trip the deputy was given It by a lady [ aB noW. who picked it up. (From the Hammondsport Herald.) J. A. McMillan, representing the Hor- ton-Merganthaler Grape Basket company, who has been traveling through the grape growing aectione of the country collecting statistics was in Hammondsport over Sunday. He came from the Chautauqua- Erie district, where the grape hMyest has already begun. Pricea thus far InM ruled high. Many growers have contracted their entire crops of Concords on the vines at $30 per ton. Although the mark­ et prices thus far will not warrant these prices, yet there seems to be general be­ lief on the part ot growers that Concords will be worth $40 per ton. We understand that local wine men and speculators have offered $30 for choice Concords. Some, it is said, have sold at this price, but many prefer waiting furth­ er developments. While it is rather ear­ ly to prophesy definitely, at least it is quite reasonable to believe that the price of grapes will be high, as compared with many former years.
