Some of the business transacted by the Wyoming County Board of Supervisors: Seven' women representing 6\B7.| other women of the county, peti tioned the board last week for an appropriation \ of $3500 for the es tablishment of a Home Bureau.

No action was taken on the peti- Arcade for permission to borrow' $5,000.00 to pay the town's share of I the Punkshire town and county road. Permission was granted and Mr. Parker presented the resolution au thorizing the town to sell bonds to Pthe-amount=of—?5j000-for=the=pur^ pose named. During the past year a committee of the board of Supervisors has made a comprehensive survey of the towns of the County in an f ffort to obtain a fair equalization. The committee is composed of Davis, of Castile, Chairman, Hopkins of At tica; is'orih of Bennington; Tozier of Orangeville; and Parker of Arcade. They have gone into the matter thoroughly and have arrived at what they believe to be a just estimate of the values at which property is being assessed at in the various towns. The following list shows the per centage of real value at which prop-; erty in the several towns of the coun ty are being assessed at. In the re -adjuBtment Arcade is given credit for assessing at 74 per cent, whereas AUXILIARY ATJ0IIANI1I SOLDIERS GALLEftY The boys v,-ho stood by their Country in the World.

He told the tale of a lake. Trout lake in fact, in the northern part of Canada, where he cast his flies, having three on his leader, into th e lake six times and caught fifteen trout, each'weigh. ing from one to three poundB. And to make it more binding he said he did not care whether his hearers be' lieved it or not. All we have to say is that a fisherman who can 'land three trout, each from one to three pounds, on one leader, is a \Jim. dandy,\ if you know what that means. Mr. R. I. Cartwright of Arcade, and C.

ARCADIANS THIS YEAR. Mrs. John Miller entertained the LPhilathea Class, Friday evening. A partnership supper was served and the regular monthly business meeting was held. Final arrange ments were made tfor the annual Bazaar, which is t o be held Saturday Dec. 4. The. following were appointed chairmen: Fancy work, Mrs. A. F .

H. Moore. „ * Your attention is called to th e fi nancial report of the Community Chest which is published in this issue ' I t will be' noted that but $642 was received from pledges during the year, while the expenditures were $948. About $300 from the old Ely fund was thus used to meet the ex penses. • As this Ely 'fund, was raised years ago.'and^was intended to be used to meet a certain kind of cases, such as the treatment of crippled children, etc., thjs fund should be built up t o the original amount- Also ' it will be noted that the ex penditures for local cases that were helped amounted to but $93, which is'much .below the amount that or dinarily would arise. It is also very essential that a siz able emergency fund be established to meet unusual conditions that might arise at any time such as an epidemic. The committee that administers this fund is made up of the following men: Rev. George V. Callahan, chairman; D. C. Bentley, Rev. W. W. Dailey,* B. A. Hyland,' B. Jackson, Rev. Frank Meyer, Rev. Henry Mos ley, Rev, 'John R. Riley, J. S. Smith, and L. D. Spring. This committee has used the ut most care in handling the funds. They have also 'given considerable thought to the needs of the coming year and. have decided that not less, than $1500 should be raised at this coming drive which is to occur on Sunday afternoon, December 6th, when, as stated last week, each home in the town is to be called on for subscriptions. In the paper next week a budget for the coming year will be publish ed as will also the names of the so liciting committees and other details.

The community Chest Committee., has endeavored to make th e best use of the amount of money entrusted to it, and ye t much against it s desire was obliged to draw on the Ely fund which i t felt was all too small for an emergency reserve. Therefore they recommend that in the canvas bud get for 1927, in addition to other amounts, there should b e included a sufficient amount to assure an emer gency fund of at least $500, increas ing during the years until a consid erable fund should be built up. When we think of the emergency cases that have occurred in near by towns th e past year, < wo see what such a fund might mean t o us ot any moment.
