BALDWIN HELD ON TUESDAY 93 Year Old Physician Died on Saturday, October 17, at Pinney Home, Jay Housewives Advised To Check on Prices Dr. Gilmau Baldwin, a former well known physician of An Sable Forks, died hist Saturday (October 17, 1942) at the advanced age of 93. He was the son of the late Levi and Ruth (White) Baldwin, and was born al the Baldwin farm on Green Street in the town of Jay, August 22, 1S49. He received his early schooling at the old Keeseville Academy, and later', en- tered the University of Vermont Col- lege of Medicine at Burlington. There he received his medical degree in 1S7L>. He had the distinction of be- ing the oldest living alumnus of that institution, and, as such, received the honors of his college at the annual class day services last summer. In .1S75, he married Anna Spier of Geneva, and began the practice of Homeopathic medicine at Gouverneur, , N. Y., where he lived many years, : and was very popular, and built up j a large business and a comfortable ' fortune. There his two sons, Doctors . Harold and Frank, were born. In ' after years, he moved to Syracuse where he rapidly established fame as a cancer specialist. Later, for rest and recuperation, he retired to his ' \Stone\ farm in Jay, which he soon sold to the Lake Placid Club. He , then purchased the Frank Kemp ', home in Au Sable Forks, where he • practiced his profession for several ; years. Having many cancer patients ' in Southern New York and Northern . Pennsylvania, he found it necessary ' to live nearer to them, and so, moved to Elmira, and sold his handsome residence here for the Episcopal par- sonage. Mrs. Baldwin died in 1935. ( This broke up his home, and he spent '• the following winter with his son Dr. Frank Baldwin, in Manila, P. I. Af- •. ter his return from the Philippines . the following spring, he made his • home with his niece, Mrs. N. S. Pin-. ney, in Jay, where everything pos- sible was done for his happiness and , comfort. He was quite active and alert almost to the last. The sud- den death of his son Harold last July, and the incarceration of his • son Frank by the Nipponese in Manila proved an inconsolable tribulation, ! and without doubt, hastened his ; death. He was the last leaf on his j sturdy and prolific ancestral tree. ; His funeral was held last Tuesday \ at the Pinney home, and was well at-: tencied. The services were ably and ; sympathetically conducted by Dr. Charles Seabury Robertson, pastor of . the Jay Methodist church. Mr. Christ j of Wilmington sang two appropriate! .selections. Interment was in the fam- I ily lot in the Upper Jay cemetery. ' Dr. Baldwin was a gentleman of the old school, always fine looking and . •well groomed. He took great pride ; in his profession, and in his success' in relieving human suffering through- out a long practice. Even in his ad- vanced years, when he was low in the ' tallow and long on the wick his su- preme pleasure was the care of pa- tients. He was a devoted member of the Methodist church, and a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellow lodges and in sympathy with every good en- deavor having lor its aim right and justice. He was always clean in character and upright in business matters. He ardently loved life, and fought off the angel of death as long as he could. However, when the last clear call came, he ralmiy obeyed the summon, cheerfully surrendered his •early cringings, and without, strife or complaint sweetly and gently passed away from ;he dim twilight of this world to the glorious light of eternal day. Local housewives are advised by Claude A. Otis, chairman of the Es- sex county war price and rationing board No. 15-0-2, to make a list of the prices they paid from September 28 through October 2 for poultry, dairy products and other important foods which came under price-control ! on October 5. j He pointed out that with such a ! list, it will be a simple matter to ! check the prices now being charged i for those items and make sure that I they are no higher than the ceilings. I \Prices on poultry, mutton, butter, ; cheese, ege;s, canned milk, onions, white potatoes, dried beans, cornmeal, fresh citrus fruits and canned'citrus • fruits and juices,\ Mr. Otis said, j \should be no higher than the high- ! est price your store charged for these I items in the five days between Sep- | tember 2S and October 2. I \Placing of these latest ceilings | brings under price-coin rol ninety per l cent of the foods used in the aver- i age home. Many of the foods in this 'group are those which had been add- ing substantially to , grocery bills every month.\ New York Times Urges Election of John J. Bennett, Jr. For Governor WILLSBORO YOUTH GIVEN SENTENCE AT KSEX COURT Bowen Receives 7 to 10 Years at Dannemora—Special Term November 9 John J. Bennett, Jr., Democratic nominee for governor of the State ] I of New York, has received the un- j qualified endorsement of the iniiuen- i tial New York Times, which in a lead editorial October 13th urged the voters to elect Mr. Bennett governor. The Times highly praised Mr. Ben- nett's record of twelve years as at- ! torney general and emphasized the l ellicient manner in which he conduct- • ed his oilice. . The editorial follows: j i \Three weeks from today the peo- 'looking i pie of New York will elect a gover- ! nor. This newspaper, which in the , ; past has given its support successive- jthe | ly to Alfred E. Smith, to Franklin D. .vote j Roosevelt and to Herbert Lehman, j now recommends to its readers the , j candidacy of John Bennett. \Two major reasons underlie this ' choice. First, we believe that the | Democratic party in this state rich- • ! ly deserves a vote of confidence on ! I the record it has made in oilice. j Second, we believe that Mr. Bennett, ' if elected, will make an able, consci- . entious and hard-working executive, whose energy and interest during the ' whole of the next four years wiil be devoted exclusively to the governor- ship oi' New York. \Let us begin by asking what good reason can be offered for a change of administrations at this time. Has the space of twenty years and under tne leadership of three forward-look- ing governors, the Democratic party at Albany has written a chapter of in- telligent and humane social legisla- tion unmatched in brilliance in any state in the Union. During the same twenty years the Republican party at Albany has been run by local party bosses with no apparent knowledge oi the fact that they are living in a changing world and a record of per- sistent opposition to all forward- measures which amounts al- most to genius. \There are good reasons for giving Democratic party in this state a of confidence. There are also good reasons for believing that Mr. Bennett would make a successful gov- ernor. He is certainly experienced. He has served for twelve consecutive years in a highly responsible state otlice and there is no man in Albany who has a better first-hand knowl- edge of the business of New York. He is enough of a liberal to have served successfully in two strongly liberal state administrations, and he is enough of a conservative to be a steadying iniiuence in a time of risk. \For these reasons and on these grounds we endorse his candidacy. \Furthermore we believe that those Democrats and those independents who may now be planning to vote LOUIS P. ROBARE CAPABLE NOMINEE FOR COMM. WEFARE Au Sable Forks Business Man Well Qualified for Essex County Post Want Information On Vital War MetalsMORE MEN NEEDED TO TRAIN AS RADIO MECHANICS IN ARMY Pleading guilty to a charge of rape, first degree, Leon Rossie Bowen, .19, of Wiilsboro was sentenced to serve not less than seven and a half nor more than 10 years in Clinton prison, Dannemora, by Essex County Judge Elmer J. Vincent of Ticonderoga in county court at Elizabethtown on Monday. Boweu was indicted on Oc- tober 2 on charges of rape, £rst and second degree; assault, second de- gree; and injuring the health of a seven-year-old child. Pleading guilty to a charge of un- lawful use of an automobile, Leda St. John, 17, of Keeseville, was given a suspended sentence and placed on probation for three years. Clayton N. Cooper of Winooski, Vt, a second offender, pleaded guilty to burglary, third degree, and petit lar- ceny, and was sentenced to serve not less than five nor more than 10 years in Clinton prison. William Doty, 21, of Keeseville, was sentenced to serve not less than one and a half nor more than three years in Clinton prison after pleading guil- ty to burglary, second degree. The case of Gerald P. Patenode of Schroon Lake, indicted for burglary, third degree, and petit larceny was sent over to a special term to be con- vened November 9 at 1:30 p. m. at Elizabethtown before Judge Vincent and court was adjourned. i the Democratic party, as represented : in. the state government at Albany, : been incompetent, dishonest, hesitant, • indifferent to the needs of the peo- i pie, out of touch with the temper of ' the times? In an effort to make a case for a change of administrations, . the .Republican candidate pictures the state government as 'loaded with political incompetents,' its agencies ! 'sunk ever lower under political doin- ; ination,' while 'the cobwebs have • grown thicker in every corner of the state administration.' | \This is a picture which can strike '. few independent voters as bearing S much relation to the facts. The rec- : ord of the Democratic party at Al- • bany, from the days of Al Smith for- •• ward, has been a record of success-possible ful service to the people of the state. The public business of a great com- monwealth has been handled elfici- ' ently. Standards of honesty have been high. Administrators of the ability of Robert Moses have been ; developed and given an opportunity ' to do good work. Meanwhile, over Louis P. Robare, prominent Au i Sable Forks business man, is the | Democratic nominee for the oilice of • Commissioner of Public Welfare in > Essex County, and with his back- • ground is exceptionally well qualified ; for this important position. \ A native of Au Sable Forks, Mr. < Robare is one of the outstanding in- surance men of the North Country I having entered the field after several i years spent as an invstmeut counsel- I or. He was educated in the Au Sable i Forks schools, after which he studied 'at the American Institute of Banking, I Pace Institute and Columbia Univer- i sity. j In 1937, after a career in real es- ! tate and insurance in New York City, ! Mr. Robare established the Robare I Agency in Au Sable Forks. This : has since become one of the most ; enterprising insurance and real es- 1 tate houses in Essex and Clinton . counties. Mr. Robare has always been inter- i ested in community and political problems and is exceedingly ac;ive in civic life. He is a member oL the National, State and Adirondack Asso- fersons knowing of mineral de- ! posits in Northern New York Slate : that seem possible of development for ! war use are asked by Commerce.

A vote for Mr. Dewey will 'repudi- ate' nothing but a record of good gov- ernment at Albany. A vote for Mr. Alfange will not only be a wasted vote, cast for a candidate who can- not win and whom the president him- self does not support; from the lib- eral's point of view it will also be a destructive vote, with no other consequence than helping to throw out of oilice at Albany the par- ty that has made New York a model of progressive and intelligently so- cial-minded government. \We believe that the right choice is a show oi confidence in the Dem- ocratic party on its record and a vote for Mr. Bennett.\ | ciations of Insurance Agents, Past i Grand Knight of Au Sable Forks • Council K. of C, the Au Sable Forks i Rotary Club anil is a \veteran of the i Seventh Regiment Veierans Associa- tion having served thief years in the i luTih Infantry New York National : Guard, an organization which was ior- merly the 7th Regiment oi New York : State Militia.
