If we had the time : \ -RICHARD BURTON. The Latit Moose In the Adirondacks. The last number of the Elizabethtown from IJeorge Last Saturday evlning about sixty of herons of Franklin county sat dpwn tfea mnquet at Delmooieo's, New York city. 'he gathering was the result of a growing lesire among men identified with Frank- in county to meet occasionally for the pro- aotion of fellowship. Hon. Ashbet P. Fitch presided and in a most^ genial and felicitous manner introduced tbe toasts. There sat with him at the table of honor Hon. F. D. Kilburn, Judge Truax, Job E. Hedges, James C, Spencer,Col. James, Fred J. leaver, Francis Lynde Stetson md Col.-yobn B. Van Wormer. A place lad been reserved thereat for Edward L. Stevens, but he was unable to b£ present. Besides those residing in the city there were present Hon. F. D. Kilburn, Leslie C. Wead, Fred J. Seaver, M. E. McClary and Mr. William E. Hall, of Burlington, The superb menu was of a kind to ^ -aettfer »tT JNGS NATURALLY WEAK, iQgs sore or weakened by the grip, or by pneu- .- onia or successive colds, and throats raw or in- aned from colds and coughing, need the balmy : -othing and healing influence of TOLUIA EMULSION, is grand for tbe ehildrea. it is grand for the ^ iiflwn foMt».-'.:It-is Very palatable, aud ast jtt*|m* *s as honey. Abottie of this fltae pireparatioii .. is often saved a child's life by obviating the . -nditions leading to croup and diphtheria, while i r adults it is a great protector against Asthm wjtftes that the last moose killed in jgartof the AdiroTtdacks came to its death through the instrumentality of his broth er Phineas. He could not recollect tbe ex- act date but as Phineas died in the Union ,&rmy during the war, it must have been some time in the early 60's. Pbineas was hunting on Bog River be- low Mud Lake and bad two men by the name of Bullard and Leonard from Ma- lone with him. JEhile jacking one night he paddled Bullard up to a big cow moose. Bollard had a single barrel rifle carrying a ball larger than a man's thumb, but he lost confidence in the gun when the moose walked up to the boat and stuck her head over the jack almost into his face and not till she turned to go away could he mus- ter up courage to shoot. The shot was effective, however, and the moose was se- cured. I have heard the late Harvey Holt of Keene Valley tell the story of how his party killed the cow and calf moose which are among the last if not the very last killed in Essex County. Tbe moose were run with dogs and the cow eventually :rapped by breaking through the snow jver a slash with her lore legs on one side af a fallen tree'and her hind legs the other, near the inlet of Boreas Ponds. The calf was shot tlfe day following on Sand Point, Upper Ausable Lake. There eeeins to be a pretty general be- lief that the moose—and wolves as well— were not exterminated in the Adirondacks ut migrated to Canada. Madison Grant expressed the idea in an article in the \Century\ magazine, \The Vanishing Moose,\ printed several years ago. In Maine and other countries where moose still are found there is evidence to show that migrations of equal magnitude have taken place. It is hard to see, however, just what- route the moose could have taken to reach Canada from Northern New York without being observed and though such a migration may have taken place, it must be admitted that it is not probable It would be interesting to know if any of your readers Jkete information as to hether caribou ever -existed in the Adi- rondacks.

MTJJ Kilburn, a free lance in such mattery led off, and in the course of his forays into the affairs and history and relative merits of Franklin, Clinton and St. Lawrence, as well as in his narration of certain a^toriishing experiences in tbe south woods, furnished much good-na- tured provocation for the ready retort of Col. .lames, Judge Truax, Mr. Stetsor and Mr. Hedges. It was diamond cut diamond aud all of it fun for the listeners A pleasant interlude was a mandolin duet by John A. LaBarge and S. Sumner Shears which was exquisitely rendered.

During the progress of the evening the company was honored with a brief visit by Gav. Roosevelt. • It was announced that the governor bad snatched a few momenta from another banquet then in progress and had dropped in on the Frank- lin feast largely out of personal compli- ment to Mr. Kilburn. Without making any allusion to thQ attacks made by a certain New Yorkpaper, he stated that he had come in with the purpose of saying to-Franklin county men that in the duties :hat devolved on himself as chief execu- tive of this commonwealth there bad been no man who rendered him more efficient service, or in whom be had rtposed fuller confidence than Mr. Kilburn, and that in every instance the latter had d&ore .than met his expectations. Tbis was said in but few words but with a warmth - and deep sincerity tbat excited tbe company to a high pitch of enthusiasm and the governor's remarks were received with spontaneous outburst of applause. It was, a magnificent and well-deserved tribute of which Mr. Kilburn and his friends may well be proud. It was in the wee sma' hours wbeu the gathering broke up.
