The “ grandfather clause** in some of the Southern State coustitutioos is to be tested before the United States Supreme Court. That it will be knocked out there is little doubt. F o o d Staffs. T h e B a t t l e o i A n t t e t a C o c a l . The papers generally announce the fact of the recent failure of a daughter of Booker T. Washington to pass the exam­ inations at Wellesley College. It is not the first failure of the kind. Can any body see in the results of the recent elections of the South any evi­ dences that the wholesale disfranchise­ ment of the negroes is likely to disinte­ grate the Democratic patty ? Count Boni de Castellane has been ex­ pelled from the French Chamber of Dep­ uties by a vote of 278 to 235, on the charge of having used too freely Gould money to secure his election, after the American fashion. It is said that Bryan is making about $20.coo yearly out of his paper, the “ Commoner,” and is already worth up­ wards of $100,000. He ought to be rea­ sonably contented, therefore, although he failed to secure the Presidency. It just begins to dawn upon the mlucla of obtuse city editors that they did not make a ten-strike among their rural sub­ scribers when they claimed, before elec­ tion, that Republican rule had advanced the price of food stuffs. With few ex­ ceptions such prices are no higher than they should be to afford reasonable prof- fits to producers. For years, even in good times otherwise, farm products sold so low that farmers could make nothing, and in consequence farm values greatly decreased. Indeed there was no market for farms, for no one wanted to invest in them. At the same time farm labor in­ creased because of scarcity and other reasons. While the tariff has been of great posi­ tive benefit to most industries, It has helped the farmers comparatively little. There is little sense, therefore, in bewail­ ing the advance in the price of food stuffs, and the sooner the people in cities become reconciled to the now prevailing prices the better it will be for them, as it not likely that there will ever be a reduc­ tion to former starvation rates. The men who provide the food that goes into din­ ner pails are entitled to some considera­ tion, and it is well for political leaders to bear this fact in mind. ** Cereals*” The coal strikers in France have re­ fused to accept the judgment of the arbi­ tration commission agreed upon by the operators and strikers, because it did not favor an increase of wages for the reason that the price of coal did not warrant it. It is about time to get excited again over Cub in reciprocity. The Cubans have behaved so well lately, they have shown so much appreciation of the aids they have already received from this country, that we should be willing to reciprocate most generously, even to the extent of destroying one of the most important of our developing industries. Considerable excitement prevails near the dividing line between Susquehanna and Bradford counties, Pennsylvania, where a certain religious sect predict that the world will come to an end before the close of the present month. A number of farmers have left their homes, turned their stock out on the commons, and are living in camp. Many of them will not sow iheir fall grain or seed in the ground, as the Lord is certainly coming this year. ‘ ifrnfi made ascension robes. The coal strike arbitrators have com­ pleted their inspection of the mines and of the homes of miners, and will soon commence the taking of testimony. They undoubtedly found varying conditions, particularly with reference to the latter. They saw.homes evidencing neatness and thrift, and others, improvidence, squalor, and wretchedness. And so it is every­ where and in every relation of life. Some make the most of the least, and some the least of the most. Some rise while others sink, according as they are willing or un­ willing to pay the 'price o f success. The Democrats were cock sure that they would make a great deal out o f the coal strike, and so they made the most of it in a demagogical way. They know better now. In fact they ought to have known better before. To hold the Re­ publican patty responsible for calamities because it claims credit for prosperity is an insult to intelligence, and working­ men have a great deal more intelligence than those who would use them politically give them credit for. They have not for­ gotten the distressing conditions eight or nine years ago, and they are not likely to forget them very soon. _______ The Rochester H e r a ld says that farmers are not disturbed by the clamor as to trusts. It says: “ Tell him that the poorer classes in the cities have to go without meet because of the extortion of the beef trust, and he will kill a chicken for dinner or order lamb roast from his coun­ try butcher at twelve cents a pound.” If the newspapers in cities had the courage to tell the truth by stating that the high prices of meat in cities is more due to re­ tailers than to the beef trust they might accomplish something for the relief of the oppressed, though some Democratic votes might be lost. Beef should be but a trifle higher in cities than it is in the country, and in some cities it is. In Rochester roasts can be bought for 12c per lb. The official vote on Attorney General is not yet known, but it is generally be­ lieved that Judge Cunneen has been elected by about 3,oco plurality. He ran behind on the Democratic ticket, but the loss was more than made good by the Prohibition votes be received, It is ru­ mored that Coman, the Republican can­ didate, may contest the election. Cun­ neen was not nominated by the Prohibi­ tion convention, but was placed on the ticket by a committee appointed to fill vacancies. It is claimed that the con­ vention not having made any nomination for Attorney General, Cunneen*e name could not legally be placed on the ticket by a committee. Secretary of State Mc- D >nough held that it was illegal to do ao, but he was overruled by a New York City Supreme Court Judge. The modern, up-to-date housekeeper wants flour that will make white bread, ♦ and she will use no other. To meet this demand millers have to eliminate, in the grinding o f wheat, about all of the nutritial elemen's But white bread has been se­ cured, and black bread is no longer toler­ ated outside o f the old country. This af­ fords a fine apportunity for inventive geniuses, and they have taken advantage of it in the manufacture of numberless kinds of “ cereals,” known as “ flakes,” “ wheatlets,” “ whole wheat,” etc., etc. Taste for most of these preparations has to be cultivated, for it cannot be said in truth that they are altogether toothsome unless smothered with cream, syrup, or something else, and their use at breakfast has come to be considered as an evidence of advanced cultivation or refinement—a departure from the custom of our fore­ fathers and foremothers of reveling in flapjacks and buckwheat cakes. And so the result is that through the deterioration of wheat flmr, as stated, we are enabled to use the discarded elements in other forms at 100 to 1000 per cent. adyg-g^o_ gn at $ould bQ the. cost if sr,^ constitu- tuents were allowed to remain in wheat flour. Barnum, the prince of showmen, as the result of many years of personal ex­ perience and observation, declared that the American public liked to be hum­ bugged. He was right, and the more ex­ pensive the bnmbugging is the better they like it. T h e B e e t T r u s t . The beef trust does not appear to affect all sections alike. In some places there has been little or no advance in the retail prices of meat; in others, the advance has been more than 50 per cent. Below we give Albany and Rochester quotations. ALBANY. Beef, porterhouse, 30c. per lb ; sirloin, 25c.; round, 20c.; shoulder, 16c.; corned oeet, rump, 15c.; navel and plate, 8c.; rib roast, 20c.; roast, Boston cuts, 16c ; liver, ioc.; pork, fresh, 162.; salt, 18c.; lard, 16c ; ham, whole, 16c.; sliced, 25c.; bacon, 20c ; bologna, 16c ; sausage, 16c.

Certain­ ly it cannot be that the trust discriminates against some cities and in favor of others. Is it not more probable that retailers, un­ der the cover of the “ beef trust” clamor, are robbing the people ? It is not generally known, but it is a fact, that of all the great battles during the war for the preservation of the Union that fought at Antietam, Md., on Sept. 17th, 1862, was, all things considered, the most desperate and sacrificial. It lasted less than a day—indeed the greater part of the fighting was done in five or six hours, yet the total of killed and wound­ ed was neatly as great as that sustained in the three days* fight at Gettysburg. The 34th N. Y. V. was an active partic­ ipant in the contest, and on the 17th of September last, the 40th anniversary of the battle, a number of the survivors met on the battlefield and were addressed by Gen, Carman, who spoke in part as fol­ lows : 'We stand upon one o f the great battle­ fields o f the civil war; in some respects the greatest and most momentous one. Gettysburg only exceeded it in the num­ ber killed and wounded, but that was a three days fight. Antietam was but one day, and on this one day as many men were killed and wounded as were killed and wounded in any two of the three days at Gettysburg. Cbickama- uga, the greatest battle of the west, does not show the loss, killed and wounded, for its two days’ fighting that Antietam does for one. The true test o f the sever­ ity of a battle la the per centage o f loss o f those engaged. The percentage o f loss here for one day, on the Union side, was 20 64-100, or nearly 21 for every 100 en­ gaged; Chickamauga, 19 60-100 for two days, and Gettysbury 21 20 100 per cent, for three days. Reducing the equation to one day, we have 20 64-100 per cent, for Antietam, 9 8 10 per cent, for Chickama­ uga and 7 7 100 per cent, for Gettysburg. This shows the relative or comparative severity o f the fighting, that it was more than twice as desperate as it was at Chick­ amauga, and three times as desperate as it was at Gettysburg. The Confederate loss, killed and wounded, was 24 65 100 per cent, of those engaged. There were more men killed and wounded on the Union side in the one day at Antietam than in the two days* battle of Shiloh, Corinth, Stone River and Chickamauga, mote than in the three days’ battles of Fredericksburg, Chancel- lorsvllle and Cold Harbor, more than in the five days of Groveton, Second Manas­ sas and Chantilly, more than in the seven days on the peninsula, more than in the eleveadaya’ campaign ending at Appom­ attox, more than in all the battles around Atlanta and more than in all the opera­ tions around Vicksburg, including the seige from May 1st tojuly 4th, 1863. Between daybreak and the setting sun of September 17th, 1862, forty years ago this day, over 93,000 men of kindred blood (56,300 Union and 37,300 Confed­ erate) and 520 cannon, engaged on this field in a desperate stryggfe, afld wfien went clown and mercifully put an end to the strife 3.634 were dead and 17,- 222 wounded, an aggregate of 20 856; Un­ ion 11.648, Confederate 9,208. About i,- 770 were missing, some of whom were dead, but most of whom were carried as prisoners from the field. It was the blood iest days of American history. Every state from the great lakes, on the north to the Gulf of Mexico, on the south, from the Atlantic to the Mississippi, and, with the exception of Iowa and Missouri, every state watered by the Mississippi, contrib­ uted to this carnival of death and suffer­ ing. The most desperate fighting and the greatest part o f tne loss was in this vicin­ ity. Here, within 1,200 yards o f the Dun- kard church, 55,728 infantry (Union and Confedeiate) were engaged with a loss of 2,854 killed and 13,661 wounded, an ag­ gregate of 16,515, or nearly 30 per cent, of the number engaged. All this loss oc­ curred before 1 p. m., more than three- fourths of it in the little over four hours from 6 o’clock to half-past ten, and on a field not over 1,500 yards from north to south, with an average width, east and west, o f 900 yards, an area of about 300 acres. No oiher equal area on the Amer­ ican continent has been so drenched in human blood. T h e C h a u t a u q u a G r a p e C r o p . Growers whose percentage of yield did not run too low are feeling very well over the result. Whereas, in some cases, 60 per cent, of a crop was harvested, more money was taken In than in 1901. Some yards report as low as 25 per cent, of an average crop, which, of course, means a loss. “ Bulk grapes at $30 per ton for the run of the vineyard is a good price,” said a leading grower. In a few instances $31 has been paid for bulk stock. To-day, October 27, the union is shipping car lots at fourteen cents for eight-pound baskets. The call for red and white varieties is far in excess of any supply. Delawares and Niagaras are not to be had. We need vastly more acreage of these varletiep. Altogether, the grape season of 1902 gives the Chautauqua grape industry a decided boom. At $30 per ton it stands to day probably without a rival among the small fruit products. Peaches in Michigan may make a better showing, but it is quite doubtful if that is true . — G r a p e B e lt . K a l l r o a d A c c i d e n t . T h a n k s g i v i n g P r o c l a m a t i o n . BY GOVERNOR ODELL. Our country has been blessed with peace, prosperity, and happineas, and our people are respected for their conserva­ tism, for their enlightenment and their progress. The benificent influences of our institutions have been exerted for the advancement of civilization, and to us have come problems which required not only patriotism in their solution, butfai h In God, who has placed upon us the re­ sponsibility for this advancement of His work. For all of these blessings wc should render homage to Him. I, therefore, designate Thursday, No­ vember 27, 1902, as a day of thanksgiving and praise. Let us, on that day, put aside the cares of life and in our homes and in our respective places of worship, with hearts full of thanksgiving and with a faith in our future which can only come through a firm reliance upon Almighty God, offer up prayers of thankfulness and supplications for a continuation of divine favor.

It is claimed that out present cuirency is too rigid to meet especial emergencies. It should be more elastic, so that it can be contracted or expanded as necessities may demand. This may be true, but it should be re­ membered that it were better to have a rigid currency that is absolutely safe and sound than one of great elasticity with wild-cat featm cl And in securing cur­ rency there should be no weakness o f the security of bank depositors. The latter now have less protection than they ought to have. In fact there is greater need of bank reform .than there is of currency re­ form. The currency is increasing now in greater ratio than the Increase o f the business of the country, being about three times what it was less than a quarter of a century ago. The stove is a method of schools that is now confined al clusively to the country towns, and is no longer used in the city and village. And yet the school stove is endeared to a cer­ tain extent by pleasant memory, and it often figures amusingly in the pages of domestic fiction. The cold winter days, the storm at the windows, the young lady teacher, and the iboys bringing in the bucketfuls cf fuel—all this is familiar enough—to many from description and to others from experience. In the city and village schools, however, the furnace, for many reasons, is much better. There is a raving of time and labor, to say nothing of he assurances of sufficient heat, and something to be said also on the score of economy .— S eneca F a lls R e v e ille. Editor Stowell is frequently “ off” in his political utterances, but his admirable moralizations have generally been “ true to nature,” to disposition, and to facts, and have also been interesting, instruct­ ive, and reformatory. Therefore it is sur­ prising and painful to note that he would i have his readers believe that because of his age his memoiy does not go back to the time when, in most school houses, box wool stoves were used, which were supplied with wood from three to four feet in length. The “ cold winter days, the storm at the windows, the young lady teacher,” is all right, but in those days fuel was not brought in in buckets The preliminary estimate of the aver­ age yield of corn, as published in the onthly report o f the statistician of the Department of Agriculture, Is 26.8 bush­ els as compared with an average yield of 16 7 busheis in 1901, 25.3 bushels in 1900 and 1899, and a ten-year average of 23 4 bnshelb. An average as to quality is 80.7 per cent, as compared with 73 7 per cent, last year, and 85.5 per cent, in 1900. It is estimated that about 1 9 per cent, of the corn crop of 1901 was still the hands o f farmers on November 1, 1902, as compared with 4 5 per cent, of the crop of 1900 in farmers' hands on November i, 1901. The preliminary estimate of the aver­ age yield per acre of buckwheat is 18.1 bushels against 18 6 bushels in 1901 and ten-year average of 17.6. The seven States having 20,000 acres or upwards un­ der this product, including New York and Pennsylvania, which together contain about three-fourths of the entire buck­ wheat acreage of the country, five report a yield per acre in excess o f their respect- iue ten-year averages. The general aver­ age as to quality is 88.1 per cent, against 93.3 per cent, last year. The preliminary estimate of the yield per acre o f potatoes is 95.4 bushels,against an average yield per acre of 65 5 bushels m 1901, and a ten-year average of 75.9 bushels. Of the States having 100,000 acres or upwards in potatoes, all except New York and Michigan report a yield per acre considerably above their ten- year averages. The average as to quality is 904 per cent., as compared with 78 4 per cent, in November last. The preliminary estimate of the aver­ age yield per ac<e of hay is 1.51 tons against an average yield of 1 28 tons in 1901 and 1900 and a ten-year average of 1 29 tons. The present yield is, with the exception of 1898, the highest ever re­ ported by the Department of Agriculture, and each of the eleven principal hay pro­ ducing States report an average yield in excess o f that ot last year and aleo in ex­ cess o f the ten-year average. The aver­ age as to quality is 83 7 per cent, against 91 3 per cent, in November last. The apple and ppar crops are consid­ erably above the ten-year average in neatly all the States in which the raising of these fruits is of any importance and the grape crop is slightly below such av­ erage. John Strong, a well known engineer on the Northern Central road, and his fire­ man, Lott, brought in their train on time last evening. In attempting to run the engine back to the round house it collided with a freight car which was standing on an intersecting track. The corner o f the freight car struck the cab of the engine with great force, knocking Mr. Strong over. In falling he clung to the throttle, thereby accidentally opening it wide. This increased the backward speed o f the engine, and it started rapidly down into the yard. It collided with another engine, pushing the latter with great force into a third engine, which stood in the vicinity of the turn table. The table was in the wrong position, so that the third engine was derailed. Engineer Strong was badly though not seriourly injured. He sustained several cuts about his face and had his cheat bad­ ly squeezed. Fireman Lott jumped from the engine and sprained his ankle. The third engine, which was pushed over the turn table, was badly damaged. T h e V i n t a g e o i 1 9 0 2 . The grape market o f the present season his been a very p€cuiiflf ana unusual on£. There was evidently a far smaller crop than was figured upon by the most skep tical. This is apparent in the amount of grapes shipped away. The wineries here have all bought heavily, securing some of the largest and finest crops to be had ear- a ly in the season. The Ohio wineries, represented by Charles Laughlin and H. O. Fairchild, have each consumed in the neighborhood of twenty carloads, and Randall Lougwell and James Faucett, private speculators, have shippedas many more, L. Wiesmann has shipped to New York in the neighbor­ hood of seven cars. It is possible that five or ten carloads may yet be shipped, but hardly probable. This does not represent anywhere near the usual amount o f grapes sent from this place each year. It is authcritively stated that the amount o f shipments in baskets via Penn Yan is smaller than ever before known, barely a car load a day. These are not selling in the city markets at prices that would guarantee the amount paid by the wineries. The lowest prices paid this year for grapes in bulk have been equal to the highest prices paid for the best grapes In many past years. The Chautauqua product is said to be practically out o f the market, which will doubtless assure reasonable prospects for the marketing o f the Concords being held. The large packing houses at this place have purchased sparingly, perhaps not more than half the amount of past years. Consequently, it is safe to say that the crop could not have been more than half the average. While this is quite apparent, it is also reasonable to assume that the amount of money received is equal if not greater than that realized from the average season .— H a m m o n d s p o r t H e r a ld * Under gray skies and gowned in neu­ tral brown, enters November. Frost waits upon her and strews her path with mem­ ories o f summer days. The bugle o f the north wind proclaims her coming. A Brooding silence reigns in thickets, where the mighty feathered chorus poured forth a welcome to her sister months. Gone are the flowers, save that in some shelter­ ed retreat still lingers the blossoms of the skies, the beautiful fringed gentian, or mayhap a sunflower or late goldenrod lends of its gold yet a little while. But from stark bare treetops comes the bark of squirrels, fat with much feeding, and it Is answered by the merry shout of nut- gatberers gleaming among the thickly strewn brown leaves.

The prosecution in the civil courts of the private of the Pennsylvania National Guard, who, in obedience to orders, shot and killed a striker, is continuing, not­ withstanding the vigorous protests that have been made against it. The accused is defended by the Attorney General of the State, who has declared that the con­ viction and punishment of the man for obeying military orders will result in the disbandment o f the National Guard o f the State. It should, for if a soldier, on duty, is liable to be punished by civil authority for doing his duty, and by military au­ thority for not doing it, very few will be foolish enough to enlist. Gov. Stone should give the outrage a pause by sum­ marily removing the district attorney who is conducting the prosecution. M e m o r i a l .

SPECIAL NOTES, —The first well defined cold wave of the season appeared in the British Northwest last Friday, showing temperatures ranging from io° to 20° below zero. It progressed steadily eastward and was central in the upper lake region last night, but its energy had materially lessened. Alow area o f great energy and magnitude is advancing from the West, and should cause warmer weath. er, with rain, Tuesday night and Wednesday. When this storm gets well east of this station, cold weather is quite likely to advance, but it is impossible to make any prediction regarding the extent or degree of the cold. RALPH L.

On motion, carried : That report of committee on repairing engine house roof be accepted and committee dis­ charged. That we reconsider the claim of Milton M. Rose. That Milton M. Rose be requested to furnish an itemized bill for services rendered. William T. Morris appeared before the Board T h e N e x t H o u s e o t R e p r e s e n t s - t t v e s . A Democratic tpsaket in Rochester, a few days before election, claimed that many articles manufactured in this coun­ try under tariff protection are sold abroad much cheaper than they ere sold here. Among other things he aald that type wrlteis which sell here for about $100 can. be purchased in England for $45. This may be true, but we greatly doubt ft. It le easy to account for some difference on reasonable grounds, but the one noted is highly improbable. If the claim were] trne, money could be made by buying typewriters in E igland-and bringing them back to this country. It ought to be easy to disprove all such charges, and they should be disproved, not in the heat of a political campaign, but when the people are anxious to learn and accept the truth. And there is another claim made by the Democrats just before election, that sav­ ing bank depositors are taxed, that should be met now and effectually disposed of, bo that it may never be renewed. The Republicans will have about 25 majority in the next House of Represent- atices. The exact number is not yet known, as there are a few districts in doubt. Twenty-five will do. It is a fair working majority. It is enough to carry measures worthy of the united support of the party, and other measures should fail. Large party majorities in legislat­ ive bodies tend to indifference, teckless- nesg, and worse. The Republican major­ ity in the present H< use is too large for the good of the party and o f the country, and had it been smaller several bills which have become laws would never have been passed. With 25 majority it would hardly be safe to attempt to run through “ without debate” a $70,000,000 river and harbor grab or an omnibus public buildings bill. The election returns show that abobt 80,000 Republicans failed to vote in New York City. Where were they ? Were they playing ping-pong or golf, ot did many stay away, as is claimed, to accen­ tuate their disapproval of the “ reform” administration of Mayor Low? Perhaps both contributed to the abstentions. Cer­ tain it ia that Mayor Low has not been a blooming success. His reforms have been few and far between, while what he has sought to accomplish and failed would have made his administration even more unpopular. Hia effort for wide-open Sun­ days was shocking even to Boss Croker. Adjutant General Corbin, in his annual report, favors the restoration of the army canteen, claiming that its abolishment tms proved to be very demoralizing to the army, increasing discontent, drunken­ ness, and desertions. Great advance has been made during the past few years in methods o f trans­ planting trees of large growth. The chief trouble has heretolore been that devices for lifting the tree injured the bark, which is the most tender and most vital pert of the tree. The invention of John A. Wil­ kins of Indianopolls obviates this. Briefly he surrounds the tree to be moved with a steel platform, to which curved steel shev els are hinged. These ate driven into the ground, previously softened by copious wetting, so that they eurround and firmly Inclose a globe of earth containing the tree roots. By screw power the platform bold­ ing the earth ball and tree is then lifted clear of the ground and laid upon a cush­ ioned skeleton wagon, which carries it to its destination,whe e it U lowered into tfce hole prepared for it When tamped in place the shovels are with drawn. This method renders summer transplanting safer than the old way of freezing the earth around the roots of the tree in win­ ter. WHOLBaALB Butter, pertt> Eggs, per doz.

Bruns- kill, November 7,1902, a daughter. a Hinging Noises In the ears (how disagreeable they are!) become chronic and cause much un­ easiness and even temporary distraction. They are signs o f catarrh; other signs are droppings in the throat, nasal sounds o f the voice, impaired taste, smell and hearing. Catarrh is a constitutional disease, originating in impure blood, and re­ quires a constitutional remedy. “ I suffered from catnrrh in the head and loss of appetite and sleep. My blood was thin and I felt bad all over most of the time. I decided to try Hood’s Sarsaparilla and now have no symptoms of catarrh, have a good appetite, and sleep well. I heartily recommend Hood’s Sarsaparilla to all m y friends.” R. L o n g , California Junc­ tion, Iowa.
