At home, and you well know if you bought a pair and they were no good that we would make it right, for that is the only way we do business. We don’t want your cash unless we give your money’s worth, and hundreds o f customers tell us that our children's shoes wear longer than two pairs bought in other stores, but that is easy to guess because we make them of leather and make them for ser­ vice. It won't cost you much to try one pair and see for yourself. Price is from 65 c. up. The contest is still raging. The ques­ tion Is for you to settle. Decide to join the blue. * M e s s r s .

Cornwell, chairman Republican county committee, Peon Yan, N. Y. W hile picking apples on Monday of last week, Will Reed, of Bellona, fell over twenty feet from a ladder, striking his side on a bag of apples. The liga­ ments of some of his ribs were torn apart, but, aside from soreness and a gen­ eral shaking up, he feels none the worse for the fall. I t is reported that Warren Amidon, of Crosby, m e night recently had six rows of grapes stripped of their fruit by thieves. It is also said that Isaac Crosby lost several bushels of peaches in a sim­ ilar way. R a y B a l l a r d , a son of Mr. and Mis. M. L. Ballaid, died at the family resi­ dence on Stark avenue in this village, October 22, 1902. Besides his parents the deceased is survived by four sisters— Lena, Jennie, Azora, and Edna—ard two brothers—Howard and Frank. A n d r e w L o n g w b l l , of Second Milo, took a half teaspoonful of fluid extract of veratrum vinde on Wednesday last, having mistaken it for syrup of chloride of iron. Realizing his mistake he came to Penn Yan, and Dr. J. L. Van Bender adminis­ tered the necessary antidotes. H on . William H. Adams, presiding justice of the Appellate Court of this de­ partment, returned on Monday, October 2d, from his European trip, after an ab­ sence o f several months. He spent some time at the German watering places, and was greatly benefitted by the treatment. N o t i c e of pendency has been filed in Yates County Clerk's office in this village in an action entitled Maurice B. Andrews against Mary Farrell et al. The property in question is situated in this village. The action is to foreclose on two mortgages, one bearing date of April 6, 1898, and the other June 6, 1895. A pparently Yates county is to have quite a southern colony this winter. Prof. Berlin H. Wright has left for his winter home, and before snow flies Mrs. Homer Martinet and Mrs. Timothy Costello of Benton, and William Buxton and William Coon o f Milo, intend to start. These are in addition to those from this section who usually winter there. A ny registered voter is entitled to ab­ sent himself from his place o f employ­ ment for two hours during the time the polls ate open, and no deduction can be made from his salary. However, the law provides that on the previous day the employer must be notified of the desire and mnst designate the time for him to go. Undoubtedly the law is unconstitu­ tional, bnt it is not likely that it will ever be tested in the courts. A pple shippers in this section are com­ plaining that prices are being gieatly re­ duced by a practice of some evaporator T h e r e ATI* S w p II G a r m p n t * l owner8of picking over the piles o f drop nieie are oweii uarmenisifraitwhlchig sold lhem and placingln barrels that fiuit which is of the fairest appearance, this fruit afterward being placed on the market in competition with choice hand-picked apples.

S. deposit fund o f this county are likely to have two or three pieces of property in the town of Italy on their hands, because of default in the payment o f interest by the mortgagors, due to the great damage to their property by the floods a few months ago. T he First Assistant Postmaster General has issued a circular letter to postmasters of the rural free delivery post-offices, in­ structing them that postmasters and rural free delivery carriers are not permitted to condemn the letter boxes used by pat­ rons. That duty rests with the route in­ spectors and special agents. A n o t i c e of pendency in County Court of a foreclosure action entitled Maurice B. Andrews against Mary Parrel and oth­ ers has been filed with the county clerk. Two mortgages are involved, the first having been given June 6, 1895, and the second April 1, 1898. Both are on a house and lot located on Jacob street in this village. T he rush o f drop apples, caused by the heavy wind of the latter part o f last week, has made it necessary for the evaporators at Branchport and Middlesex to add another kiln to those they already had in operation. These plants now handle nearly 1,000 bushels of fruit per week, and have pay rolls aggregating about $100. All the evaporators in the county are running full time, and are handling a great deal of fruit. R o b e r t G r i f f i n , of Wayne, was ar­ rested in Penn Yan on Thursday for dis­ orderly conduct, in driving bis horses on Main street in a reckless manner while intoxicated. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced by Police Justice Baker to spend eight days In the county jail. There has been not a little o f reckless driving Ion Main street, and it is high time it were stopped, regardless of the age, rank, or residence of the offenders. Personal .

He was an old man and in poor health and it was feared he had met with an accident. One of his eons, it is said, consulted a clairvoyant, who made the following statement: “ Your father is old and has lately suffer­ ed a severe illness. You will find him in a thick clump of bushes in a body of wa­ ter not far from home dead.\ On Monday o f last week the body of the missing man was found in Onondaga creek, where it had lodged under a clump of bushes, and now the coroner is making an investigation, which will include the “ second-sight\ of the medium, with a view of ascertaining where she got her In­ formation.

O n Sunday last Miss Alice Carroll, of this village, died In Dr. Whitbeck’s Hos­ pital, Rochester, where she had under gone a surgical operation, aged 40 years. The deceased Is survived by three sisters, Margaret, Nellie, and Mrs. William Fo- shay, and one brother, Thomas Carroll. The receiver of the First National Bank of Penn Yan, insolvent, has completed the labors o f his trust. There will be no further dividends to depositors. Instead a rebate o f 38.3 pet cent, will be paid to stockholders who paid the 100 per cent, assessment in full. The rebate will be paid by the Comptroller of the Currency direct from his office. The bank failed September 16, 1899. The first dividend, 70 per cent., was de­ clared March 9, 1900, a little over five months after its suspension ; the second dividend, 7 pet cent., April 23, 1900 ; the third dividend, 20 per cent., September 17, 1901, making a total of 97 per cent. After the payment of the rebates to stockholders a small balance will be left, which will be retained by the comptroller to meet contingencies. Teachers’ Examinations. M rs .

Wood answers very well in the kitchen range, but it ia far from a success in a furnace, while soft coal can­ not be burned at all In some furnaces, as the soot it forms quickly clogs the flues and draft pipes. As about 90 per cent, o f the mines are now in running order, coal in small quantities, to be doled out by the quarter or half ton, ought to be ob­ tainable in most villages in a week or two. As to the price, more will be known later on. A paper in Golden, Colo., raked in many delinquents on the ground of this eloquent appeal: “ Yon may approximate the stars in a nail keg, hang the ocean on a grapevine to dry, wipe the nose off a cyclone with a towel, cut off the tall end of a tornado for a keepsake, put the sky in the ground to soak, unbuckle the belly- band o f eternity and open up the sun and moon as health resorts, but never be de­ luded with the idea that you can escape the other side of purgatory if you don’t pay for your paper.\ S ome time Saturday night burglars made an entrance into the meat market of George H. Sisco, on Jacob street. En­ trance was gained by palling the bars from a small window opening into a dark alley, and the burglars removed the cash register from its place to a cornet behind a meat block, where, by use of a cleaver, it was broken open and about #6 in cash taken therefrom. The damage to the register entails a greater loss to Mr. Sisco than does the amount taken. The burg­ lary waa committed by local talent. 1902.

It appears to be more than probable that there will be a contest over the es­ tate o f the late Mrs. Leonore Post Banks, formerly o f this place, who died in a hos­ pital at Canandaigua some months ago. The deceased was survived by her hus­ band, Wilbur Banks, of Bellona; a daugh­ ter, Grace ; and a brother, C. Clint Post, of this village. Shortly after her death letters of administration were issued to John S. Sheppard, Esq., and to her hus­ band. Subsequently the brother, through his attorneys, brought an action to estab­ lish a will, which, he alleged, had been made in the fore part of 1891. Several hearings were had and another was set down for Monday last, but previous to that time the will was placed in the hands of the surrogate. The amount of the estate is said to be upwards of #60,000, and by the terms o f the will the entire property, after the payment of #icoo each to the five daughters of John Robson, of Gor­ ham, is given to the brother, and he is named as executor. The daughter, through her attorney, makes the allegation that this Is not the last will of her mother; that several other wills were made since the date thereof, and that at that time and subse­ quently the testatrix, by reason o f mental alienation, was not competent to make a will. ________ ____ ________ New L a r d , ................................. \2 % c . lb.
