The committee in charge of the course is desirous of the co operation of all the townspeople, as it will be some­ thing of profit for the older ones, and of inspiration to the younger genera­ tion. The first number, Olivar’s Fili pino Orchestra, is an organization ol refined and cultured Filipino artists, presenting a program ranging from primitive to grand opera. The develop ment of music from the simple strains played on primitive Filipino instru­ ments to classical numbers rendered on the best instruments of today will be demonstrated by the Olivar’s Fili­ pino Orchestra on October 13th in the Presbyterian church, a group of four people born in the Philippines and ed­ ucated in the United States will ac­ complish this. They are musical wiz ards, with the ability to play almost any instrument. Senor Catalino Oli- var, an artist on the steel guitar and ukulele, organized the first Filipino orchestra in 1907. Senora Olivar has a beautiful soprano voice. There was to be a royal wedding in one of the tiny kingdoms of Europe, The king's daughter was to; become the'wife of a crown prince of the neighboring country. The wedding night arrived, the people were assembling; suddenly it was found that the members of the royal orchestra had imbibed a trifle too much, and were unable to play the wedding march; chaos reigned; after a hurried search for a group of native musicians of the ability of the royal orchestra, the lord chamberlain was forced to call upon musicians of an other race to fill their place. The wed­ ding was a success, and the little troupe were highly honored. Today Senor and Senora Olivar wear beauti* % e ful medals pinned upon them by the king of this little European country, for it was their company who so ably filled the shoes of the royal orchestra. W. G. Pridmore and Mr. Wadsworth, of Syracuse, spent Sunday with F. G. Hathaway and family. Professor W. A. McConnell, of Owe go, was home for the week-end. Fritz Simonsen and family motored to Alfred Sunday, Fenton Simonsen remaining in Alfred, where he will DUNDEE Dundee and vicinity will begin tc receive the benefit of the lower rates in electricity for this month. The new ; rate schedule will show on the bills sent out the first of next month. The ♦ lowering of the rates was due to the fact that the business men of the place made out a petition to the Public Service Commission, and they in turn notified the New York Central Elec­ tric Corporation of this fact and; ad­ vised them that if they could make satisfactory arrangements with the vil­ lage they would not interfere. The company at once sent a representative here to confer with a committee and together they made out a satisfactory rate schedule. The village was paying a higher rate than other places ob­ taining current from the same com­ pany and from the same power house on the outlet of Keuak Lake. The people using electricity for business purposes will have a special rate that will make it worth while to install the electric motors. Miss Ruth Sayre, daughter of Mrs. Frank Sayre, of this village, has writ ten a very interesting letter to her mother, telling of her experiences while in Hialeah, Florida, during the recent storm.

She has been doing bookkeeping work in Hialeah for the past year.

It is expected that a large number of the scouts will receive cred- Vineyards October 4 People drive many miles at this season of the year to see our vineyards with their ripened crops and to eat the red, white and purple clusters. Beautiful as they are, they are no happy-go-lucky pro­ duction. Years before we are permitted to eat the delicious fruit, roots must be grown, vines planted and tended; in short, there must be preparation and sacrifice for the good things to come. i So in financial affairs there must be prudence and foresight if the best results are to be achieved. Perhaps the money saved and deposited in the bank this year may prove to be the seed which will grow the crop of your hopes. i Baldwins Bank ol Penn Yan W take an agricultural course at the uni- it badges at this time.

HEN a man accumulates a surplus over and above his daily wants and which is not required in his ♦ business he is faced with the necessity of choosr m g between speculation and investment. Of course, his choice should be to invest bis savings, as the overwhelm­ ing weight o f evidence shows in the long run investment is more profitable than speculation. % Over a period of years good bonds have been proved to be one of the safest and most desirable forms of in­ vestment. As a class they are safer than stocks, are more readily converted into cash than real estate mortgages and require no attention other than the clipping coupons at the regular interest periods. Clipping coupons is a pleasant pastime. \ p \ H.W. Swarthout Company, lit !! PHONE 510 PENN YAN to the visiting ministers and the! wives.

Experiment Station at Geneva have tailed to pay for the time and labor (►of applying them, according to a re­ cent statement on the experiments made by the station authorities. “In Western New York apple or­ chards that are well drained, properly cultivated, and supplied with organic matter and humus by means of cover crops, commercial fertilizers are not need,” says Dr. U. P. Hedrick, station horticulturist, who lias directed the ex­ periments. “In sod orchards it has ben shown repeatedly that fertilizers containing nitrogen are decidedly beneficial,” nays Dr. Hedrick. “ Orchards on sandy, gravelly soil of low fertility or on shallow, drouthy ground may re­ spond to fertilizer treatment, and the station experiment would not be a safe guide under such conditions. For thti better fruit soils of Western New York, hdwever, it is evident that care­ ful cultivation and attention to prun­ ing, spraying, and other orchard opera­ tions will give more satisfaction and will be much more economical than the use of commercial fertilizers,” Fruit growers who are doubtful as to whether or not their orchards need fertilizers are advised to conduct their own fertilizer test, as only in this way can they be fully satisfied, it is said. A simple scheme for laying out and conducting such a test is given in Sta- Deaf children exclusively will be tion Bulletin No. 516 which is now taught in the handsome new Gallaudet available for free distribution upon re­ school which the board of education quest. ♦ Does your home have the benefit o f , of St. Louis, Mo., is erecting at a cost ♦ Prevent Wheat Smut By Dust Treatment Ordinary stinking smut of wheat, or bunt as it is called in the west, does not destroy the entire head, as does loose smut, but it attacks the interior of the seed and for this season is often overlooked.' The affected kernels are shorter, more plump, and darker than the healthy kernels. When such ker­ nels are crushed they are found to dontain a mass of black powder—the spores of the fungus that causes the smut. Wheat that is badly infected has a distinct fetid odor that :s notice­ able when it is threshed, according to a report from the St^te College of Agriculture at Ithaca. The treatment commonly used in the past for the control of this smut consisted in immersing the cleaned grain in a solution made by diluting one pint of commercial formaldehyde m 40. gallons ol1 water. The immersion continues not more than a few min­ utes, during which time the grain should be stirred and the light and the smutted kernels, which float to the top, should be skimmed off. The grain is then removed from the solu­ tion and should be placed in a pile and covered with sacks or blankets ♦ for two hours, after which time it must be spread out to dry. This method should be used if the grain is badly smutted, but where the smut is not bad, it may be controlled by dusting the seed with powdered copper carbonate. The clust method is more conven­ ient than the liquid’ method, and the grain is not injured by this treatment regardless of when it is done. The grain is mixed with the dust so that every kernel is coated, using two ounces of the dust to each bushel of grain. The dust should test at least 50 per cent metallic copper and should be fine enough so that 90 per cent of it will pass through a 200-mesh sieve. The mixing may be done with a shovel on a smooth floor; or a mixing machine, such as a concrete mixer or a barrel churn with baffle boards in it, will do the job.
