Among the property changes made during the past week on the Old Dekalb road were the sale of the farm of Charles Stacey to Williams Brow, of this village, and the sale of the E. S. Balcome farm to Mr. Stacey. During the past week the embryo poker rooms and brothels that were being cod- dled in this village were broken up. There may have been a time when this kind of thing was allowed in this village but — that is another story.

Saturday while a gang of prisoners were working on the ball diamond at college campus, in charge of a couple of students, Ernest Wilcox, one of the number, took leg bail and \they haven't seen him since. If he will only stay away it will be a relief to the authorities as he has been a nuisance in the com- munity for several years back. A Madrid man blew into town Sunday and made several attempts to sell ahorse and wagon he had in his possession. Fortunately for him he didn't succeed in doing it for that evening he was inter- cepted by an officer bearing information that a chattel mortgage lay against the animal. He gave up tne goods and was allowed to go. Charles R. Cook met with an unfortun- ate aeident Saturday morning while working on the new boiler at the con- densary, which he was placing in posi- tion. He slipped and fell on his right side breaking the right pelvic bone and one rib. He was taken to his Pine Street home and Dr. F. F. Williams reduced the frac- tures. Mr. Cook is doing as well as one could wish and it is hoped that his re- covery will be speedy. Invitations are out announcing the approaching marriage of Charles Elgin Runions, one of the hustling Runions photo men of Canton, and Eva Mae, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dele van Chase, of Theresa, N.

For the first time this season Co. E. lost a basket ball game on the local court last Friday. The victors were the St. Lawrence University five, and the game a \strenuous\ one from start to finish. Co. E. had all kind* of hard luck in shoot- ing baskets, time and again the ball would roll around the rim of the basket and fall to the floor, and with anything like luck to aid them would have landed a winner. The St. Lawrence boys played a great game and are entitled to the credit of a fairly won victory, their con- duct on the floor being a marked contrast to the \rough house\ work of the All- St. Lawrence team.—Malone Palladium. We congratulate the \Palladium\ on its write up of the game in which it shows so much fairness and true sportsmanship. TKe several other Malone papers never mentioned the game at all where in some of the games wh«re Co. E. have won they have been exceedingly profuse in their descriptions. The game was a good fair game to watch, but S. L. U. almost immediately went into the lead and easily kept it. There was nothing \strenuous\ about it, and as stated there was little or no \rough house\ work, nor was there any cause for such. There was not a single minute of as \fast\ ball as in every min- ute of the Syracuse—S. L. U. game. One of the commendable features of the game was the improved behavior of the spect- ators over that of a year ago. There was very little-of that hissing, howling, cat calling of which Malone has become famous throughout the game, while last year it was thoroughly disgusting. After the game an informal dance was held which several members of the team at- tended but after \holding up\ the east end of the hall for an hour or more they withdrew and went to their hotel. While there frequent remarks were made by the young men about what fine dancers there were m the town especially among the young ladies with whom they did not — G.

However feelings retained over it, for they readily perceived that were they given a chance to participate, the high standing of the town's social af- fairs might be jeopardized. THE SPHINX. Everyone enjoyed the production of the Sphinx. The'musical talent of that good, live St. Lawrence county town Gouverneur, presented at the opera house %t Canton Friday evening of last week, in a most delightful manner the comic opera \The Sphinx, or a Crisis in Egypt.\ The opera was under the management and,leadership of Charles M. Tait. The cast consisted of an unusually strong, well balanced chorus of twenty-five voices with eight very good soloists. The music was bright and catchy. The dan- ces and drills were apt and pleasing and in ev,evy sense it was one of the best amateur affairs ever presented to a Can- ton audience. Mr. Geo. L. Tait as an all around hobo was all right and his jokes and take-offs were very funny. Mr. Chas. M. Tait as Papyrus. P. H. D.. a young Chicago swell on a trip around the world was fine. His wooing of Hathor, the soul of the Sphinx, whose character was beautifully portrayed by Miu Jennie-Phelps Corby, was very amusing and decidedly unique in the way of love-making. Mrs. Corby's acting and singing was also enjoyed by the audience. Miss Adelaide Bouck in her portrayal of Amasis showed splendid talent in both her singing and acting, as did also Miss Jessie I>ee as Barmeda. The star of the company in the vocal music line was Miss Jean Bignall, who assumed the character of Shafre, the leader of the school girls. Her solos were exceedingly well rendered. Daphne, aa taken by Miss Ruth Henderson and Miss Vaughn Goodnough as Pteechia,the pre- ceptress of the seminary were each su- perb in their respective parts. W.R. Connor as Neferkira, O. W. Hes- selgrave as Erosthenes, Forest Brown as Dioconious, delighted the audience in their various songs, which were good. Will King and Elisha Cameron did a little act at Sheldon Falls, Grasse River, last week, while on the drive, that would be jacks and aces to most of Ringling Bros, ring performers. The two were at the head of the falls at work on the slippery forest giants that were a little refractory in agreeing to get out of the eddies. Without warning the logs they were on made a rush for the falls and over they went with their human freight. They struck below without injury, to be confronted by a jam of logs. They couldn't go over it HO with the surging undertow they went under it to come out far below in the open, where they succeeded in getting out without injury. A local wag on bearing this story, face- tiously inquired whether they \got wet.\ Attention is called to Section 6, Chapter 1, of the ordinances of the villageillage off Can-- That the practical results of laziness and inability to work are a toss up— they're \sixes.\ That it's human nature for us to believe that reform should begin with the chap across the road. That the street corner fiend in Canton is liable to have to die a violent death before the year is out. That the man who wants the whole community to know all he knows never knows any too much. That if most people -would burn their own smoke, this world would be nearer that Paradise you and I read about. That Hplarnm is the Greek for the name of a certain well known Canton man. Translate and call this an April fool joke. That give some men an inch of the highway and they immediately assume that they are entitled to the entire road and forthwith take it. That the youth who succeeds in sling- ing a dollar's worth of style on a ten cent capital may be classed uuder the caption \dead beat.\ That a certain Canton celebrity has become so impoverished that he has to forage his chicken feed from the railway cars that stop near his door. HAWAII, THE PEARL OF THE PACIFIC- The last lecture in the course for the benefit of the football management will be given at the Opera House Friday evening, April 8, by Mr. John H. Corwin, New York City. This lecture is as g^od as those delivered by Mr. Skinner and Mr. Black. The subject is Hawaii, and as Mr. Corwin resided in Honolulu for seven years he is particularly qualified to present the subject. The illustrations are numerous and the best obtainable. Mr. Corwin is one of New York's suc- cessful lawyers and has a well deserved reputation as a lecturer. He will be re- membered as the father of Howard Corwin, formely of the class of 1905. Tickets at Conkey's. Admission 25c. An interesting habeas corpus case came up before Judge Hale last Friday. The application wus made by Charles Mc- Mahon. through his attorney, G. W. Hurlbut, to obtain his discharge from the county jail, where he was held upon a body execution issued upon a judgement obtained against him several months ago for watering his milk. McManus resides at Pyrites, and has a large family which has been a charge upon the town since his incarceration, involving much expense. The application was oppoeed by D. W. Mulligan of Ogdensburg. George H. Bowers appeared to represent the sheriff. It appears that McManus was confined in tne jail 18 days before procuring a bond which allowed him to go on the limits. He has been on the limits about four months and 24 days. The law requires that he shall serve six months on the limits, or three months in confine- ment. Mr. Hurlbnt contended that Mc- Manus had served an equivalent of six months on the limits, since the 18 days served in confinement should count for 86 days on the limits. The point is not clear. Judge Hale gave McManus the benefit of the doubt, and ordered his dis- charge from custody. The annual election of officers of Canton Branch No. 555 of the National Protec- tive Legion was held Friday evening March 27th. The officers elected for the ensuing year are as follows—:Past Presi- dent, Mrs. Clinton Risley; President, Fred McCartney; Vice President, A. E. Frank; Secretary, F. M. Wellington: Treasurer, Miss Sybel Tuttle; Chaplain, Mrs.Celestia Powell; Conductor, Mrs. A. Herrick; Inside Guard, Carrol Cook; Outside Sentinel, E. E. Gibbons; Trustees, Arthur V. Olin, Duane Tuttle, Ira Broeffle. The installation of the above officers will occur April 10th, and immediately after a dance will be held in Donihee & Baker's Hall, refreshments will be served. A large attendance of the members is desired. Secretary H. W. S. Knox, of The Patrons' Fire Relief Association, reports a wonderful* increase in the amount of property insured by the company during the past three months. Since January 1st, 1903 new insurance to the amount of $614,000 has been written, and the company has policies to-date covering property in the excess of $5,600,000. Compare this with the fact that during the first ten years of the existence of the company the policies issued by the com- pany were never at any one time in excess of $500,000. Low rates, prompt pay- ments of losses and cutting outall chance for fault-finding are beginning to have their effect. 1 Offer You — A FIRST — ton: \No o Can to rate upon t l door-step, bulkhead or stairway adjacent j to the sidewalk, or cast or throw thereon ' any fruit skins, peanut shells or other refuse, under a penalty of five dollars for each offense; and in addition to the penalty a violation of this ordinance shall constitute disorderly condnct and the person violating the same shall be a disorderly person./ If some of the hood- lums who congregate on street corners and make themselves public nuisances from early morning till late at night would clip the above out and preserve they might save trouble.
