Hamlin &Co. P enn Y an , N. Y ., March 2 , 1903 . T he 108-acre farm a short distance north of Rnshville, known as the W. P. Bassett place, was sold under foreclosure last week. The claim against it aggregat­ ed $4 400, and it was bid in by the holder of the mortgage, D. H. Maxfield, of Nap­ les, for $2,300. It is estimated that it would cost more than the amount receiv­ ed to build the buildings on the place.

The score was as follows, the names of the Hooks appearing first: George Bassage tied Fred Foshay, 15-15; Hobart Yetterbeat Archie Dine®, 16 14; Warren Legg beat Ashton Bassage, 20 lor George Dubellbeat Guy Cadwell, 1812. Total balls for Hooks, 69, for Sheldons, 51. Ow­ ing to some internal difficulties the Hy­ drant Hose forfeited the game which they were to have played with the Ellsworths. T he fourth game of pool in the fire­ men’s series was played by the Hunter Hooks and Hydrants in the rooms of the latter Tuesday night, and proved a verit­ able Waterloo for the Hydrants, they be­ ing defeated by the following scores, their names appearing first: James Stark was beaten by Warren Legg, 10 20; George Vrooman was beaten by George Bassage, 6-24; George Klingman was beaten by Hobart Yetter, 12-18; Agustne Durnin was beaten by George Dubell, 5- 25, giving the Hooks a total of 87 balls to 33 for the hydrants.

A s s e m b l y m a n Moran has introduced a bill to discourage the building of spite fences in villages. The enactment of such a measure woifld stop the vent of the ugliness of some people. IT is estimated that in consequence of the increased price of labor and lumber, building now costs at least 40 per cent, more than it did a few years ago. No doubt the inevitable result will be a great curtailment in the construction of new buildings except in cities which are now booming more or less abnormally. In Canandaigua, where carpenters demand $3-oolper day on a ten-hoar a day basis, and masons $5, it is said that contractors ate discouraged and will make little effort to secure contracts this season.

She had been sick since last fall, being forced to leave her studies at Geneaeo Normal School, where she had been a student since September, 1901. She was taken to Kansas during the win­ ter, but found no relief, returning she pa­ tiently awaited the end. She is greatly mourned by a large circle of relatives and friends. Besides the parents she is survived by a brother, Melford J. Wilson, and a sister, Mrs. George Fitch, of Rush­ ville. T he Painters and Paper Hangers'Union of this village have resolved that, on and after April I, 1903, the standard rate of wages for painters, paper hangers, and decorators shall be $2.50 for nine hours. An interesting opinion was-recently handed down by the Appellate Court at Rochester in the case of a colored man who sued an Italian boot-black who re­ fused to shine his shoes. The decision is in favor of the former, who was alio suc­ cessful in the lower cour;. The appel­ lant is now seeking to secure sufficient funds to carry the case to the Court of Appeals.

A communication in last week's Sen­ eca Falls Reveille on the subject of the first mills built in this section, told of one erected in Seneca county In 1794, and adds; Before the erection of this mill, the nearest point at which they could get grinding done was at the village of Rome, and one other near Penn Yan. Thlr lat- tei mill was elected by the' followers ot Jemima Wilkinson, who left Connecticut in 1789, and arrived at Crooked Lake and made a permanent settlement there. The last named grist mill was erected in 1790. It was at this mill that the first bag of wheat was ground in Western New York, and it was at this mill that the first white settlers of Seneca county brought their grain to be ground, until Judge Hal­ sey built the one at Lodi Creek.

Superstition aaya that the prevailing wind during the vernal or autumnal equinox will be the prevailing wind for the fellowing three months. We have never heard any scientific ex planation o f this idea, but it is probable that the only foundation it has is that if conditions are well enough established at these periods to pro­ duce an excess o f polar or equatorial winds, the chances are that the influence will have ” lasting qualities ” sufficient to predominate for a consid­ erable period. We have known this to fail sev­ eral times, but must confess that the odds favor the fulfillment of the superstition. Conditions to-day (Tuesday) are easy, and sea­ sonable weather may be expected. A storm cen­ tral on the Gulf coast Saturday moved slowly northeast, and caused the rains of Sunday night and Monday. The center passed this section Monday night, and a run of cold air follows it. The Incoming coolness will probably cause misty showers or snow flurries, and the temperature will drop to the freezing point or lower by Wednesday morning. No severe cold weather is in sight.

R e leased on Bail. James Finger, formerly of Penn Yan, who has recently been employed by Francis E. Hoyt, who resides a few miles from this village, became apparently in­ sane on Thursday last and threatened Mr. Hoyt and his family with death. Mr. Hoyt came to town and secured a war­ rant for his arrest. He stated that he be­ lieved that Finger’s mind had become un­ balanced by reading the accounts of the horrible murder and suicide which oc­ curred at Yatesville on Tuesday. On Thursday Finger was arrested on the war­ rant sworn out by Mr. Hoyt, charging him as above stated, and when taken into cus­ tody by Constable Wadley it was found that he was armed with a razor. On Fri­ day Finger was examined at the jail by Drs. Allen W. Sampson and J. T. Cox, who pronounced him insane, and on Tuesday he was taken to Willard Asylum by attendants of that institution. Joslah Tubbs, who was recently arrested on the charge of bigamy, was released on Thursday last, having succeeded in se­ curing bail In the sum of $1,000, as fixed by County Judge John T. Knox. His bandsmen are John O'Neil, of this vil­ lage, the father of his second wife, and Mrs. Maria Simmons, of Wayne, his grandmother. This, however, is not like­ ly to end his troubles, as Miss Gage, whose infatuation for Tubbs was the cause of his arrest, is reported to have alleged that they were mairied in Elmira last fall, but it is said that there is no record of the marriage in that city.
