The people living in the “Brooklyn” section of Herkimer’ village are very in­ dignant over the liberty taken by some person, Avho opened the flood gate lead­ ing from the West Canada creek into Little Lake, and caused the water ito flow over their land and into their cel­ lars. For several years the people liv­ ing in that section have been greatly inconvenienced by water flowing frolu the West Canada creek into Little Lake, thence over a low plot of ground, to the Brooklyn section. Receatly the village board authorized the building of a flood gate to be placed a t the mouth of the outlet of 'Little Lake to prevent the water from setting back during the high water period. Saturday after­ noon it was moticpd that more water than usual was flowing through the gate and when the cause was investi­ gated it was found that the gate had been opened and the water from the WestCanada creek allowed to flow into the lake until a section of its bank overflowed. Heretofore Little Lake has been used for an ice field, but with the gate closed no ice could be harvest­ ed from the little body of water. The ^ people of Herkimer are of the opinion that some one opened the gates who cared more for an ice field near his home tha^ he did for the comfort of his neighbors. LONDON ’WINE TASTERS, One of the out of the why modes of getting a living in London is that prac­ ticed .by the wine tasters of the London docks. These persons, who are sup­ posed to have palates of exquisite deli­ cacy, with much.knowledge of wines, hang about the docks, where they are hired by'both dealers'and buyers to accompany them to the vaults and give their opinions-of the various wines sub­ mitted to them forexamination.Though they carefully avoid swallowing the wines they taste, yet their calling slowly saps their health, and they be- Tne sensations wnicn they experience in sampling the wines are of the most delicate and subtle nature. It was one of these men who detected the flavor of iron lin a pipe of wine into which a shingle nail had fallen. The language da which they describe these sensations is altogether unique ^full, sometimes, of the subtlest allu­ sions and analogies. At a trial in which the quality of a cargo .of wine was In dispute one of these profession­ al! tasters, who had been summoned to appear as a witness, expressed the most positive conviction that, as itbe plain­ tiff contended, the wine that 'hiad been sent was wholly different from the sample. “And how do you know that?\ asked )'pposlng counsel.

D., spoke with reference to the life of Abraham Lincoln, in view o f the fact that to-day is the anniversary of his birth, and his remarks were of an interesting nature. His text Was taken-from Isaiah 44:28. In opening, the pastor said that if the pages of history were carefully ex­ amined it would be ascertained that in every great crisis the right man. ap-. peered at the opportune moment, and when it was necessary the Lord raised up a shepherd to lead the people. He called' attention to the selection of Cyrus as the great shepherd who saved the tribe of Israel, then referred to the troublous ■condition of the states o'f the Raman empire, and how all seemed to be about to be destroyed jjntil the raiglity Caesar appeared and succeeded in adjusting .the troubles and making the nation strong instead of weak. Then when the next great crisis arose, as. to whether Christianity or ^heathen­ ism should rule Europe, the mighty Constantine was prod.uced and Chris­ tianity won. When constitutional lib­ erty was endangered in'England Oliver Cromwell was the shepherd who led the people in the struggle for their rights, and afterwards when civilization had spread to the shores-of America and the colonii^s were oppi’essed the shep­ herd appeared in the aristocratic Vir­ ginian, George .'Washington. As to where the shepherds were to come from was a question which Las been and is still unanswered, however, and in il­ lustrating this fact the pastor called attention to the victory of a band of poor mounain whites over the -British at Kingis Mountain in the war of the revolution and which ultimately had the effect of -driving the British into surrender a t Yorktown. Then the poor mountain whites disappeared again, hut when the clouds of the re­ bellion were spreading about and a leader was looked for the poor moun­ tain whites again came to the front. A leader was not found in command of an army or in the ranks of the aristocracy, but in a rail splitter. Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin and his father was one of the most shiftless of the very lowest of the low types of mountain whites, but h}s mother was a woman of great natural understanding. Lincoln never amount­ ed to much in his early life and every­ thing he tried to do ended in failure. He had the povrer of expanding, how­ ever, and was capable of enlargement. Ho possessed Splendid moral and intel­ lectual powers and they were well bal­ anced. He 'had boundless confidence in 'the people and knew that thej-- Would not be mistaken all the time. He knew what was right and did It. >He excell­ ed in his marvelous perspic­ uity of speech, and in one or two sen­ tences he posed 'the iConfederates and prevented the European n ations from giving the aid which the southern states expected of them. \When Lin­ coln was a young man he saw -the slaves being sold a t public auction in New Orleans and he then made a re­ solve that if he over h ad a chance to strike that Institution h e would h it it hard, and he fulfilled h is resolve when he Issued ihls great emancipation proc­ lamation. The two great morals which may be learned from Lincoln’s life are that the choicest flowers some .time come from the worst places and lowliest surround­ ings, and thatby appreciating the great value of moral powers and sober sec­ ond thought a pereon will almost al­ ways be on the side of right, and a close study of the life and character qf the man will be helpful to everyone.

' Mrs. Henry Moeltzen, who resides on Temple 'sta'eet with ber huS^band and four children, produced a vei-y large pie for dinner yesterday, and as she was aware .that her husband’s pie appetite was something abnormal, 6he gave each of the children a very small piece and took a very small portion herself, over half the'pie was left for Moeltzen, but whe'n he came 'home he was intox­ icated and when offered bhe portion of pie saved for- him he ' Immediately threw it through a window, at' the same itime asserting th a t ' his wife should have saved the whole pie for his especial pleasure. Aftei’ the pie had gone through the window 'Moeltzen en­ larged the aperture toy throwing some dishes through the window glass and finally drove his Wife out of the 'h’ouse. Her shrieks alarmed the neighbors and a request was made for an officer. Chief SpeVber went to the locality, of the Moeltzen home and met the bead of the family on the sidewalk. He immedi­ ately placed him .under arrest and this morning he was arraigned before Re­ corder Wood on a charge of public in­ toxication. He pleaded guilty to the charge and was fined 510. He was also given a severe reprimand and warned that if he ever appeared in court again under a similar charge ,he would he sent to the'’penitentiary for the full limit. Moeltzen promised .to act in an , orderly manner in the future and also to treat his family with consideration. The trial of Richard 'Manzer on a charge of assault in 'the .third degree was called todfore 'Recorder W^ood this morning and as there was no appear­ ance on the part of the .complainant the defendant was discharged.

A few nights ago when I went home it was raining hard. My umbrella was wet, and I carried i t immediately to the kitchen to drain. Casting about for something to stand it in, my eye caught some sort of receptacle on the floor near the sove, which I took to he the coal hod, so I stood the umbrella in it and went to bed. The next morning the cook gave notice. She bad found my umbrella standing in her shoe.”— Syracuse Post Standard. CROSS,—A son to Mr. and Mrs. El­ ton Cross, Fremont street, Sunday, Fehruatj’ U. ■ E.
