It is doubtful if any bill of more far reaching importance to the farm- ing interests ot the United States has ever been favorably considered, in congress than the rider which was at- tached to the agricultural appropria- tion bill which • extends to the migra- tory birds the protection or the federal government., As the McLean bill, this measure had passed the senate but in order to insure its passage by the house it was necessary to add it to one of the great appropriation bills, a method of legislation which is wrong in princi- pie but which was in this case, at least justifiable. Competent authorities have placed the annual loss to the country due to attacks of insect pests, at figures well up in the hundreds of millions of dol- lars. These pests can be controlled only by their natural enemies, the birds, and by reason of the slaughter of millions of inae.ctiverous birds in the southern states, the number which return to their northern habitats has prompt attention. Estimates furnish- ed on work of all kinds. ;•.-. : v TRIUMPHANT DEMOCRACY. Possibly the most appropriate com- ment which can be made at this time upon the passing ot the control of federal affairs to the hands of the De- mocracy lies in the Muotation of the following editorial from the current issue of the Commoner, Mr. Bryan's personal organ.. The Commoner says: \In control of both houses of con- gress, as well as the White House, the Democratic party will have a great opportunity. While Democrats have gone down to defeat repeatedly they may obtain satisfaction from the investigation of the record their party has made. In the first place the Dem- ocratic party is the only political or- ganization that ever reformed itself. In 1S96 the rank ana file of the party rose in protest against the policies of the Democratic national administra- tion and put the party in line with the progressive thought of the day. It is also gratifying to remember that al- though the party has not been in pow- er it has forced the Republican admin- istration to adopt some of its reforms and it has provided inspiration to men of all parties who would work for the public good, i In short, it is the only political party which, even in defeat, has been able to force its victorious opponent to adopt some of its leading reforms. The income tax and the election of senators by the people are Democratic measures. They were ,, practically accomplished under Repub- .. li'can administrations and won through ...:.th[e persistent championship of those :. tijeasures by the party which claims ' Thomas Jefferson as its leader. f .\.' V*;Now the Democratic party is about ... . t6|§iif er upon the administration of the 'jia'Sfipnal government. The new pres- v^jieiat has thje confidence of men of ^'^tpaTEieTaad he is recognized as the leader of progressive thought.\ The duty oil the all-the-y ear-round protection of these birds now devolves upon the department of agriculture, which may be depended upon to act with energy in the matter.

K^v\! , t fM ^r 1 THE STATE HIGHWAYS. Apropos of the removal of C. Gor- don Reel, state superintendent of Highways last week, it may be of in- terest to review briefly the present State of road building in the state. There are 80,000 miles of public roads in the state, 11,000 of which are -designated as state and county high- ways and the remainder as town high- ways, which fact emphasizes the rel- ative importance of the efficient ad- ministration of the latter roads. At the first of the year there were 3,578 miles of state roads completed, 1,627 miles under contract and money enough remained of the first big bond j incorporated. issue to complete these and 242 miles j March 22, additional. Or the 69,000 miles of town high- -ways, 3,500 miles are macadamized, 8,500 miles improved as gravel roads, MARCH IN EARLY HISTORY. March 1, 1828—Town of Branting- ham, now Greig, formed.

March 21, 180S—Lowville Academy Large Attendance From Lowville and\* Other Villages.—Odd Fellows Have Roll-Call and Banquet—Other Notes of the Week. Over fifty Masons from Lowville went to Port Leyden Sunday morning to hear the stirring and eloquent ad- dresses on Masonery which were de- livered .by William S. Farmer, junior warden of the Grand Lodge of Masons of New York State, and Willard A. Rill of Syracuse, to a large and en- thusiastic audience of Masons and their friends in the Congregational Church. Tbe meeting was held under the auspices of Port Leyden Lodge, No. 669, F. and A. M. Turin and Boon- ville also sent good sized delegations and a large number were present from the home lodge. The church was com- pletely filled in spite of the rain. R. J. Richardson of Lowville, deputy grand master of the 24th Masonic district presided. After the invoca- tion by Rev. W. H. Leach, pastor of the church, and a hymn by the con- gregation, Mr. Rill spoke on the sub- ject of \ Man, a Mason.\ Mr. Rill men- tioned the antiquity of the fraternity, its origin and development from oper- ative to speculative Masonry, the building of character it inculcates, the interdependence of church and the fraternity, and gave a striking analogy of the greatness of the Masonic order. Mr. Rill's address was very intere'st- ing and well delivered. Miss Kather- ine Hesler of Lowville rendered a solo in a very pleasing manner. Wil- liam S. Farmer gave a scolarly and in- spiring address on \What is Free Ma- sonry.\ He dwelt upon the splendid history of the fraternity, stating how the greatest and best men of all ages have been members oil the craft, and how the history of the United States is interwoven with the lives oil promi- nent Masons. In New York State alone there are 175,000 members of the fraternity. Mr. Fanner spoke of the universality of the Masonic order, and mentioned the tour of the travel- ing Masonic Bible, making the circle of the world, the Bible always being in friendly hands; such a trip would not be possible in any other fraternal or- der. Mr. Farmer charged the Masons present to remember the requirements of admission of new members, accept- ing only worthy men of high moral character, regardless of their wealth, class or condition. He emphasized al- so the belief of Masons in God and the tenets of the fraternity—friendship, morality and brotherly love. In con- clusion he exhorted the brothers to remain true to the high and noble ideals of the fraternity. Mr. Farmer's I presence is strong and imposing, and ! his address was delivered in splendid style and with choice diction riveting the interest of hearers to the end. I Clarence L. Fisher, master of Port i j Leyden Lodge, expressed the thanks of the lodge to the speakers and the \ representatives of the neighboring j lodges. Rev. Reuben Kline, chaplin • of the lodge, pronounced the benedic- tion. The meeting was a note-worthy 'Masonic event in the 23d Masonic dis- | tricl. The Dewey Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star attended the meeting in a body. Lowville Lodge, No. 134, F. and A. M., conferred the first degree Friday evening. New Company Will Develop Power on Beaver River. The Beaver Power Company of Bea- ver Falls, capitalized at $300,000, has filed articles of incorporation. The incorporators are Harry S. Lewis, Mrs. Harry S. Lewis and H. L. Van- Arnam, all of Beaver Falls. It is the purpose of the new company to engage in the manufacture of pulp and paper, to develop electrical energy on Beaver river and to supply electricity for the present mill at Beaver Falls owned and operated by the J. P. Lewis Com- pany. This company controls very val- uable water powers on Beaver river, the most extensive being at. Eagle Falls, three miles below Number Four, where operations are now in pro- gress. A concrete dam from 30 to 40 feet high will be built this season at Eagle Falls, for which cement is now being hauled from Croghan by teams. The power at this point is one of the best in northern New York and from 3,000 to 4,000 horse power will be gen- erated. Just what disposition will be made of all this power is not given out at this time, but quite a quantity will be required at the Beaver Falls mills. There has been some talk of running a line to Lowville to supply current for manufacturing purposes. LYONS FALLS SUFFRAGE AND MINIMUM WAGE. Topics Discussed by Current Events Club Last Monday Evening. The weekly meeting of the Current Events Club was held last Monday ev- ening at- the home of Mrs. Frank Bowman. One of the topics taken up was the treatment accoided the suffrage pa- rade, in Washington, wnen the women composing the parade were accorded no sort of police protection and were subjected to disgraceful indignities, all of which has since become a mat- ter of congressional investigation. Another matter considered was that of the minimum living wage for work- ing girls who are compelled to sup- port themselves in the cities and its relation to immorality. Mrs. McGovern also read one of Dr. Abbott's editorials from the Outlook. Ela Merriam 183 6—Gen. founded Port Leyden. March .25, 1830—Town Turin formed.

J. A large number of the members of Lowville Lodge. No. 34, F. and A. M., turned out Sunday morning upon the invitation of Re J. Morris Evans of the Baptist Church, who preached an able and very interesting sermon be- fore the members of the order. state is rapidly taking the lead in the good road movement. Nevertheless, the state, counties and towns are assuming enormous bur- dens of debts, which will have to be met through increased taxation. There is- no fault to be found with these increased taxes so long as the people get value received for their money. The impression has been very general that the cost of state roads was far too high, per mile, and the showing made by the stfate as compared with that made by the county of Lewis, at least, goes far to justify the criticism of tl):e state department. It is a source of satisfaction to Hoxow that the interests of the taxpay- ers will be safeguarded by the gov- ernor. March 30, 1821—Town of Watson formed. Named from James T. Wat- son, who owned 61,433 acres of land at that time. March 31, 1848—Town of New Bre- men formed from Watson and Cro- ghan. District Deputy Harold J. Richard- son of Lowville paid an official visit to Boonville Lodge, No. 53, F. & A. M., Tuesday evening. The invitation was extended Wednesday evening by Wil- liam Marian, master of the lodge at Watertown, who was in attendance at the communication of Watertown Lodge. No. 49, F. and A. M. That occasion was maked by an official visit of R. W. H. J. Ricnardson, who de- livered an interesting address to the (•.raft. Purchase of a Pure-Bred Sire Cheap- est Way to Improve Head. Interesting Letter. The following letter from Mr. Herb- ert H. Greene, of Copenhagen, pre- sents a little different view of the pure-bred stock question which Lewis county dairymen have been discussing in the columns of the Democrat. If there is another and less favorable side\ to this question, we wish some dairyman would develop it. The mat- ter lies at the basis of the success of the most important business of the county. Mr. Greene's letter is as follows: \In regard to pure-bred stock, the first cost is the main reason why more farmers do not raise them. But where the farmer cannot get a start with pure-bred stock the only way to improve the herd is to raise the heifer calves from the best cows. A few poor cows may do little harm in tue dairy herd, but a poor sire will do untold damage. It is the common experience of all dairymen who have really good improved dairy sires that the investment has made them royal returns. Many a dairyman might have reason to say that he cannot afford to pay a big price for a fine cow but the same argument might apply to the purchase of an Improved sire because the sii'e's influence spreads so much farther and faster than the cow. 1 think that more pure bloods should be raised in Lewis county but if any one cannot start with pure bloods let him by all means get a good dairy sire, if he has to sell two or three cows to do 1t.\ GOING TO EUROPE. I'i .. .. MORE MUNSEY POLITICS. In a new argument for a combina- tion of Progressives and Republicans * Mr. Munsey remarks that if the Pro- gressive party were to break up 85 per cent of them would go to the Democratic party, rather than to the Hepublican party. Will some one kindly rise up and explain why they all should not sup- port the Democratic party? Mr. Mun- sey admits that the Progressives are mot fighting for a cause but for poli- Icies, which, lie says will be carried out by the Democrats. Then why -worry about \solidified Democratic torces?\ The world's youngest licensed aero- plane pilot is a 14-year-pld English na- ral cadet. ~<» - ALL ROUND TOWN.

Fowler Plans Extensive Trip for Study. Though blind from his birth, John C. Fowler of this village is planning a tour of Europe with all the enthus- iasm of one who expects to go on a sight-seeing trip. Accompanied by J. Russell Paine of Syracuse, he will sail from New York for Naples next Tues- day and will remain abroad until July. In regard to the trip, Mr. Fowler says: \Sight-seeing is not the only pleasure in such a trip. I shall study the music of the various countries we visit. Eu- rope has an atmosphere for popular music, something entirely lacking in America. I want to find out what it is, and I hope to bring back that knowledge with me, and, if possible, to bring about changes at home. I Rev. Kittredge Receives Call. Rev. Charles P. Kittrdege, pastor of the Forest Presbyterian church of this village, was chosen Friday even- ing by the congregation of the Pres- byterian church of Whitesboro .to the vacancy caused by the resignation of Rev. Godfrey Chobot, who was call- ed to Albion the first of the year. The name of R-ev. Kittredge was presented to the meeting as the favorable one from among a number that the pulpit commifitee had heard preach and whose churches had -ieen visited. The committee consisting of Austin G. Warner, William G, >Stoner, Cyrus M. Waterbury, William Lamphere and George P. Morse, was appointed by the former pastor before his leaving, and they have labored earnestly in select- ing a man whom in their opinion will be capable of heading the church. Rev. Mr. Kittredge has served 12 years in the ministry and is at pres- ent pastor of a church that is the means of setting up a high moral and spiritual standing in the community. When the members learned of the vis- its of the Whitesboro committee it was with great regret, as it was al- ready known that the Whitesboro church was without a leader, and there was a possibility of their pas- tor receiving a call. He was consult- ed later and advised the committee that he would consider the call. It is now understood that lie will accept, and that he will take up the pastorate about the first of May. In Mr. Kit- tredge it is believed that -the com- mittee has made the, best selctlon. I-Ie is a young man and indefatigable in his efforts in advancing the cause of Christianity. He has been with the people of Lyons Falls church for the past five years and there he has built up a live and enthusiastic mem- bership, full of inspiration and earn- estness. Rev. Kittredge is the son of Rev. J. E. Kittredge, D. D., assistant pas- tor of the Central Presbyterian church of Rochester. He was born in Flor- ence, Italy, in 1875, while Dr. Kit- trdege was pastor of the English- speaking church of that city. His early education was received at the Geneseo Normal School, Geneseo, at which place for nearly 30 years was the family home. Graduating from there his college course was pursued at Cornell University from which in- stitution he graduated with the class of 1897. In 1900 he was ordained by the Rochester Presbytery as a gospel minister. His first pastorate of seven years' duration was at Knoxboro, from which place, in 1907, he came to Lyons Falls, his present charge. The entire 12 years of his ministry have been within the bounds of the Utica Presby- tery. In 1900 Mr. Kittrdege was mar- ried to Miss Margaret F. Hunt of Ithaca and to them has been born one daughter, now about 11 years of age. Born, Friday, 'March 8th, to Mr, and Mrs. Fred Shepard, a daughter.

E. Markham, Joe and William Hines, Willard Hartness, Roy Brooks, * Death of Donald Williams. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Dwight H. Williams will be pained to hear of the death of their youngest son, Donald, whose bright young life went out Sunday evening after an ill- ness of but four days. He was taken sick on Wednesday and on Thursday pneumonia was pronounced by Dr. Ritter, the attending physician. Lov-~ ing care and careful nursing was pro- vided but would not stay the hand of the messenger of death. Donald was an exceptionally bright and affectionate young lad and from infancy made friends with all whom he came in contact. In school he had endeared himself alike to teachers and playmates and the sudden taking away of one so beloved and promis- ing caused a pang of deepest sorrow throughout the whole community. Donald was born on Crofoot Hill, May 23, 1903, and was the youngest, son of Dwight H. and Laura Crofoot Williams, who with an older brother, Gerald, are left to mourn \his loss and to them is extended the deepest sym- pathy of ia large circle of friends-.

Nicholas N. VanKoughnet died at half past four o'clock, Tuesday morning at the Home of his nephew, Mr. C. Arthur Riggs with whom he had made his home for the past few years. Mr. VanKoughnet was one of our oldest residents and was in his usual good health and until about five weeks ago when tne final breaking down began. *iHe had no organic trou- ble, but grew Weaker day by day, until the end. Mr. VanKoughnet was the son of William and Betsey Goutremont-Van- Koughnet and was born near Johns- town, Jan. 28, 1823.'When about eight years old he came with the rest of his family to Constablev-ille, where they settled on a farm about one mile from the village, the trip from Johnstown being made with a team of oxen. His father died, Nov. 6th, 1879 at the aged of 84 years and his mother died on May 20, 1895 at the age of 95 years. One sister, Miss Nancy VanKoughnet also lived to the age of 84 years.- When about 23 years of age, Mr. VanKoughnet came to Turin, jvhere he was employed by John Woolworth for several years. He was united in matrimony with Miss Helen J. Riggs on April 15, 1855, who died in Novem- ber, 1900. After his marriage, he was associated in business for many years with his father-in-law, Mr. C. G. Riggs and will be always remembered as a friend to the needy, always ready to lend a helping hand and to do any fav- or for others. In spite of his advanced years his mind was clear and.his mental facul- ties especially keen and bright; his eye sight being wonderfully preserved and able to be about the streets until the final breakdown. He leaves one sister, Miss Margaret VanKoughnet of Constableville, and one brother, John VanKoughnet of Dakota, and two sons, William R. of New York and Fred M. of Darrinsburg, 111.
