The lines of the Pennsylvania System have determined to use all efforts to insure to their employees social justice, healthful sur- roundings 'in their work, and every safeguard against danger. Among the suggestions is the follow- ing: “It is a. recognized fact that the majority of injuries occur not as a result of serious accidents which at- tract public attention, but from the comparatively trivial occurrences of the daily -employment-icarelessness» in getting on and o moving trains, or in the useof tools, from reckless ex-« posure .to unnecessary risks or from sheer thoughtleesness. Youare urged, therefore, not only to. watch out for your own safety, but to warn other employees of danger, and to discourage any acts of recklessness on the part of those who, by reason either of their inexperience or their familiarity with their work, fail to take proper pre- Rev. William C. Maecarthy was born. at Litch Conn., March 11, 1835. He was the iirst son of Rev. William Mac a Baptist clergyman, and the oldest of eleven children. Shortly after his birth, his father removed to the vicinity of Utica, N. Y., where he grew up. He , was graduated from Madison now Colgate University, and entered upon his work in the ministry at Waverly, N. Y., later at Wyoming, then at Catskill, and then to a New York City pastorate.

West of Watkins, daughter of Rev. Hezekiah West. Complete unity of spirit and purpose and unalloy- ed happiness were the distinguishing marks of this most felicitous union. To them were born six children, and surviving are the wife and three chil- dren: Mrs. Grace Brown of Lawton, Mich.; Mrs. Ella Sams of Flag Pond. Tenn., and Charles E. MacCa.rthy of Auburn, N.. Y.

This action was tried at an equity term of court held in Penn Yan, No- vember 25, 1912. It was -brought to secure possession of the old Catholic Church on Keuka. Street, because of a. clause in the deed when the lot was. given for achurch by the late Abra- ham Wagener, on November 12. _ 1849. The deed of conveyance was delivered to Bishop John Timon of Buffalo. At that time the Rochester Diocese had‘ not been ‘formed, and Penn Yan was in the Bulfalo Diocese. The property conveyed has a frontage of 60 feet on Keuka Street, and a. depth of 160 feet. The clause read that in case’ the property» should ever be used for any other purpose than worship it should revert to the original owner or his heirs.

The Pike Farmhouse which stood on the Watkins?-Townsend Road near the tracks of the New York Central Rail- way, was destroyed by on the evening of Saturday. January 18', 1913, during the prevalence of a sudden gale of wind, that sprang up from the north at about six o’clock. The occupant of the dwelling, George Ma-in, was not at home when the names burst forth. The kitchen was on the north. side of the house; and the sudden wind from that direction, doubtless enlivened the tire and blew a spark against the roof. David Pike, who was of the pioneer families west of Watkins to the south- ward of the Glen, built this house over half a century ago, and at the time it was one of the farm resi- dences‘in' this section. It was one of the first square-roofed dwellings‘ erect- ed in this locality, and the best of workmanship and material entered in- to its construction. It was the home of Mr. and Mrs. David Pike during their declining years, and then passed into the possession of their‘ son. the late Hiram E. Pike, whose widow suc- ceeded to its ownership. \COST OF‘ THE WORK. Investigation a‘s~to‘ the probable cost of completion of _the work authorizing the impro;\g_et_I1ent o‘f\Cayuga and ‘Seneca Canal has been made along the same lines; as that. considered in connection with the Erie, Champlain and Oswego Canal improvement. In consid- ering_tl1e phase of this work, it. should be bornein mind that the enlargement of the Ithaca Inlet to Barge Canal dimensions, \while properly a part. of the Cayuga and. Seneca Canal, was not -‘contemplated at the time‘ of ' the preparation of estimate in 1909, and further . that byithe enactment of Chapter 453 of the Laws of 1911, an additional expense was added, in that it was ‘provided to improve the Canal to Barge Canal dimensions from‘ Watkins to Ayres Street in Montour Falls. The increased,,cost on_account of thesetwo-adda3—improvements—is-approximately-$423000;-exclns' - - of any cost to be incurred ‘in the appropriation of additional lands, making the amount under‘ contract, asjalfected by alterations and extra wolf-ilc orders to October I,‘ 1911, $2,234,II8aOO. ‘ 'Estimatedg cost of work remaining to be performed, which will be awarded in the immediate future‘, $3,2‘45.054.oo.
