Y FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1927 NUMBER 24 [CRYSTAL LAKE FISHING RIGHTS jM. W. BRACKETT AND ' F. O. PARKER INVESTIGATING SIT­ UATION AT CRYSTAL LAKE. 1' or several years there has seemed to 'M an inclination oxi the part ot tliuoi: in charge ot uie coy &cout v.aini' at crystal Lake to Keep the peui 'iu occupying cottages'there, and 'LLT !, Horn hsning ana boating pn i Lake A visit to Sco.ut head­ quarters in Buifalo has heretofore bCL-n sufficient ,to stop the discord, and peace and harmony has reigned. However, recently one of the own­ ers oi a cottage tnere was ordered oil the iako by one of the officers'in charge, and the matter has been taken up with the State\ Conserva­ tion Commission. Mr. M. \V. Bracketl, pf Buffalo, inspector of division No. 11, of the Conservation department, together with Mr. F. O. Parker, Wyoming County Game Warden, were at the litke Wednesday investigating the situation. It is pointed out that the lake has been stocked with state fish a num­ ber of \times and that fisherman have always enjoyed the privilege of \wetting a line\ in trying to entice an unwary bass to strike. Also that all the cottagers deeds carry their property a considerable distance out into the lake, and that there is a considerable portion of» the lake, or the land beneath it, not covered by any deeds. 1 t However, the cottage owners only wish to live in harmony, and have the kindliest feelings towards the Scouts and wish to do all they can to pro­ mote the g6od of this great move­ ment, so it is hoped the matter will be amicably adjusted. - DELE VAN MAN KILLED IN WEST WAYNE QUACKENBUSH'STRUCKJ 7 ON HEAD BY COMPANION AND DIED LATER IN HOSPITAL. BODY SENT TO DELEYAN FOR INTERMENT. Members;,of Arcade's New Business Firm The body of Wayne Quackenbush, son of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil ^Quacken­ bush of .-Delevan, arrived here to-day and was buried from the family home Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Wass offi­ ciating. | 'A letter accompanying the body | from New Rockford, North Dakota,! where he met his death, explained what took place. It seems he had i fallen in with a man about Jus own ' age, arojund 25 years or more, and they were bunking together. This pal hit him over the head with some- ; thing and young Quackenbush gave 1 chase, but he eluded him and got away. Quackenbush then went into a depot at New Rockf ord, s washed up, told the police,-and by that time he nad .become unconscious. Doctfirs and an ambulance were called and he was rushed to a hospital where every­ thing was done for hinvbut he only lived about forty-eight hours, never havirjg regained consciousness. The only clue they had of who he was or where he was from was his fathers name on an undergarment. ' He had ninety dollars sewed up in tne .seam of a shirt, but the assailant did not get it. . It was a shock to his family and friends, and why this fine , youth I should meet such an untimely death ] is a question, but his love for 1 adven- ture arid conquest must be the rea son.

TRI-COUNTY BASEBALL LEAGUE The Chafee Vigilance Society, or­ ganized i n »1904, with Edgar Blood (.deceased) as president;-A-_,L_0'I)ell, secretary and James Whgelock, treas­ urer, is to be disbanded at a meeting to be held -Saturday, August 20, at' 8 p. m., in the office of O'Dell & Eddy Company, Chafee. At the time of the organization there were seventy-five members, and twenty young men were selected as horse back riders in case of emer­ gency. Many horses were being stolen at •that time.' The thieves selected the best horses, and many times a. man would.go to bed with a team worth perhaps $400 in his barn, and when he awoke in the morning his team was. gone. : That the society did good work was evidenced by the, fact that the unknown. Eighteen of the original members are now dead. Mr. James Wheelock has been treasurer of the Society eyer since its organization. \ Each member con­ tributed $1.00. This money was de posited with the Citizens Batik of Arcade at 3 per cent. That money accumulates surprisingly at com­ pound interest, is shown from \hc fact that this $1 hps now grown, so that each member or his (family will receive $2.^2 when, the funds are distributed. 1 Probably most of the members have forgotten all about the matter years ago Mr. Seymour O'Dell has been sec­ retary of the Society for the past fifteen years, and with Mr. Wheelock has taken excellent care of the So ciety's Business.

The people of Sardinia have reason to be proud of their efforts to hold a two-day fair. -They have more than fulfilled''\all promises, and the fair was even bettor than the most san­ guine expectations'. This can all Be credited to the excellent management real hard work,.. splendid ability -to pick just the right person to have charge of each department, and the real earnest cooperation of the entire community. The interior of the Community Hall-presented, a beautiful appear-, ance with its elaborate decTSrations and splendid array of exhibits. The conservation exhibit was something that the very best fair in'the country might well be proud of. Mr. E. T. Miller had this in charge. The an­ tique exhibit. brought forth some most -interesting articles. Among 1 these\ was an\ ; instrumjsnt for pulling I teeth which certainly, i s a revelation i to modern, dentists.., *It i s the prop­ erty of Bert Dawley. The floral exhibit presented a beau­ tiful sight,- Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ru- beck and Mrsy- L.^ Oarlsen deserve much -credit for this^display. As a matter of fact every depart­ ment of-^the fair was. , splendidly handled,'and good exhibits were the order. For instance there were 'fifty head of live stock.

MALICIOUS, ALSO FALSE The Editor has been on a visit at his son's, in South Bend, Ind. During his absence, we are informed that interested parties have been circulate ing the report that the Herald- Office was offered for sale. The lie is malicious and undoubted ly intended to injure our business. The Herald Office is NOT for sale, nor has there been any thought of selling it. We like Arcade. We like the people. We like to d\ business with them. We like—to boost the town a\nd its industries. This has ever been a pleasure to do. We know there are no better people on earth square shooters, from beginning to end. More, we believe they like us—a few exceptions, perhaps, only prove the rule. The office has been favored by more job printing, more adver­ tising, and an increased number of subscribers the past year, so we feel -that our earnest efforts to give the LhfiSt_we.. have, is appreciated. Yes, folks, we are with- you and want- to do all we can to boost. MRS. WM. REYNOLDS BADLY INJURED FOOD SALE 5ATURDAY, AUG. 13 ~* The Ladies of SS.
