The local dog catcher has a very thankless task and those whose canines are found without tags usually pul up a louder howl than the dogs themselves. Nevertheless the ordinance is a salutary one and its enforcement is proper aud right. The number of worthless curs running about our streets is large and many of them can bo spared as well as not.

Howell have leased the bank building at Ovid and will lake possession of tho property on the first of September. Ic is g.iiio- rally understood that they will engage in the banking business, for which both the gentlemen named are especially well qualified by many years of busi ness experience. Mr. Post was for several years county clerk of this county and through his long public service won the respect and confidence of the public by his careful and thorough methods. Mr. Howell is also widely and favorably known in the south jury district for careful and consistent methods in ‘bnsiuess aud tho new bank will merit and enjoy the esteem and respect to which such an institution under conservative and prudent manage- ment is entitled. ft is claimed by the Democratic members of the board of trustees that the high tax rale is accounted for in part by the fact that it was necessary to mnke appropriations for fourteen months instead of a year and that tho balance of the increase goes for the extra expeiiso under the new charter, iidewalk apprepriations, the fire alarm system and other improvements. Tlio necessity for making appropri! tions for fourteen months i^istcad < thirteen is not apparent when wo con- charter ondled January 81st and under aider that the fiscal year under the old lanuary 8 tho now charter ends February 28tli.‘ Under former boards the total tax levy has averaged about $25 000 a year oven while we were paying $1,000 per year on bridge bonds, building sewers, paying for road roller, etc., and the levy this year in comparison seems ex- eo.ssive and i.s, moreover, a heavy bur- property owners. eelnred An enthusiastic meeting of tho vet erans of the Civil war was hold in Grand Army hall, Saturday evening, to consider plans of organiz.ation of a lociation of veterans. It was 'e that the association was dis linct from and entirely independent of other organizations and that all veteran soldiers, sailors and veterans’ sons are eligible to membership, the purpose being broader than has characterized any movement made to organize here tofore. in this county. It was decided to appoint a ccinmittee of two from each township in the county, to secure members and arrange the details for holding am annual encampment. An informal meeting was hold Saturday afternoon in the Stanton house parlour, which was attended by a number of old soldiers from the south end of the county and all present manifested great interest in the movement. Another meeting 1ms been called to be hold next Saturday afternoon at Grand Array hall IVaterloo. Miss Laura Phalon of this village, performed an act of heroism last Friday which showed groat presence of mind and resulted in saving the life of a child. She was riding clown Adams street in the fouriii ward on her bicycle to make call, when in passing the house occu pied by the family of John Hamilton, her altentiiiu was called to cries of dis tress from ehildren who Implored her to come in and save their li'.Uo brother from drowaiing. Miss riialon left her wheel and was directed by the excited and frightened cliildrcn to a cistern at the rear of the house, in which she found a liule two year old toy so ex hausted with struggling in the water that he could no longer cry out. There was nearly six feet of water in the cistern and tho child was supported by a piece of board but for which he would have been drowned. Miss Phalon with the assistance of one of the older child ren rescued the little boy, who was thoroughly saturated with water and chilled so^that he could not speak. Mrs. king away fi at the lime and the five children, one of whom a b 03 ’ was confined with a broken leg, were at home alone.

Sa go ye-wat-ha chapter Daughters of the American Revolution gave a very pleasant outing to their friends Monday. The party took the electric cars to Cayuga Lake Park where tliey boarded the steamer Mohawk for Fron- lenac Beach, 'riie day was all Ih.at could be asked for and a cool breeze over the lake that made the trip boat a most delightful one. An orchestra composed of some of the guests of the society rendered fine music and added to the sociability and gener al good feeling of all. The three hours run to the leach was altogether too ut did its work in giving every- rdveuous appetite. On arrival at tlie beacti the party were escorted by the Daughters to the Frontenac hotel short but did its work in giving every- Danghte; c the lat whore the land'ord had prepared a fine dinner consisting of broiled spring chicken, roast beef, fresh vegetables, fine desserts and the necessary emboli- ishmouts that go to mnke up a whol some dinner such as some of tors would have liked to indulge in. After dinner those who wished to go were taken in carriages to Taughannock Falls whore there is a fine hotel, fur nished with valuable ami interesting itiquities of tho revolutionary period id of special interest to the members of the society whose object is to perpet uate the reverance for such things aud hand down to posterity the rich legacies left to us by our forefathers, who were nursed in the cradle of Liberty. On the return of those who went to the Falls the whole party met in the grove adjoining the hotel for the purpose of story telling, speech making and to express their thanks to the society and especially to Mrs. E. W. Addison, the Regent, whose untiring work and good management had been the means of giving so much pleasure to so many. Doctor Elias Lester w.as in hij usual humorous strain and told some very interesting stories of army lil'e and at the same lime m.ade some very fitting remarks regarding the object of the society and what if stands for and was loudly applauded. Mr. Carmer told a interesting bit of unpablished history about the American how, having been wrapped i form of a man unjustly condemned to death in Cuba, it had prevented the Span ish soldiers from firing the fatal shot. A few remarks were made by others and a rising vote of thanks given to the Daughters for their kindness and courtesy when the meeting was brought to a close owing to the sound of the steamboat whistle which signaled the party to get aboard for the trip home. The boat left ot five p . 3i , and the run was made in about four hours which gave all an opportunity to enjoy a short moon light ride on the lake, the moon making its appearance when the boat reached Union Springs. On arrival at the Park the electric cars were in wait ing and the party brought to the village where they disbanded and left for their homes all feeling that they had been most delightfally entertained and hop ing that they might again be the gue::t3 of this most worthy 'society. Burglars Operated. Our village was visited Monday night by one or more gangs of burglars. Their presence was first indicated by the discovery made shortly after eleven o’clock that the front doors of Mrs. R. S. Allen’s millinery store on Fall street were wide open. Mrs. Allen was at once notified and an investi gation disclosed that the thieves had entered the basement by forcing a door at the bottom of a stairway ing from the street. From there en trance to tho store was easy. The doors to all the show cases were thrown open and it seemed to have been the plan of the thieves to return at a later hour of the night and cart away the entire stock. A portion of the board partition between Mrs. Allen’s and Mrs. Peltus’ basements, the latter one door west had been pried oil and it is likely that Mrs. Feltus, who carries a large line of ladies furnishings would have con tributed to the proposed robbery. Mrs. Feltus says that a slick and well dressed stranger came into her store Monday and after making an inspection of some silk waists, made a five cent purchase laid down a ten dollar bill and tried to work the old flim flam game. But Mrs. Feltus suspicions were aroused by the actions of tho man, who then laid down a one dollar bill that he had in his hand took his change and departed. Mrs. Feltus very naturally connects the stranger aud his visit with the .attempted burglary. During the same night burglars entered the meat market on West Fall street of which Solomon Sisco is proprietor, by smashing out a front window sash. Three hams, a quantity of dried beef, a Zeno gum machine containing a quantity of pen nies and about a dollar in small change in the money drawer were taken. The meat market of Albertus N. Maxson, nearly opposite Mr. Sisco’s place of business was also entered. The bur- glers got in through a rear window us ing a long ladder to roach the window. They opened and left open the door to the ice box but missed the cooler door in the darkness. They were unable to get into the front store or salesroom, Mr. Maxson having bolted that door on the inside, and disgusted probably with their fruitless eflorts, clambered down the ladder and walked away with the gum machine that stood in front of tho store. The burglers left no clue except a trail of pepsin gum papers showing that at least a portion of the party had gone in the direction.of Waterloo. The Water Question. toie board of trustees of tins village will hold a special meeting next Mon day evening for tho purpose of con sidering a request that has been made by the new water company for formal permission to incorporate, so that the company may be given a legal status. Messrs. Freek and Johnson, the pro- raotors and proposed builders of the new system, will be present. These gentlemen regard with well feigned surprise the proposition that the board have made, exacting from them bonds for the proper fulfilment of the terms of the water contract and say that dur- iriod of thirty years, in which constructed a large number of water systems throughout Pennsyl vania and this state, that they have never been asked to give security and are inclined to the opinion that the village is the one that should give bonds. If Messrs. Freck and Johnson mean business they should have no hesitation in complying fully with this reasonable demand made by the board of trustees, and if the latter have at heart the best interests of their eon- sliluenls in the village, they will not waver in their demands or recede from the posiiiou they have taken, but will require a proper guarantee that the water company will live up to the terms of its contract, before it is allowed the permission desired. The contract it self which the trustees show a disposi tion to favor will not give us a system such as we should have in order to get any concessions in insurance rates nor is it as far as the domestic rates are concerned any more favorable to con sumers than that oITdred by the old company. In fact there is nothing to recommend the new company to the consideration of the board except tho fact that it is new and something differ ent. If the permission to incorporate, which is asked of the village by Messrs. Freck and Johnson, is necessary to give the company legal standing it should be withheld until a contract favorable to the taxpayers is presented and the two could then be signed at the same time. A franchise such as is asked for is of considerable value to the company getting it and should not bo granted without adequate •compensation in the form of a better service and more equitable domestic rates. If it is given away now we shall be cut off from any prospect of relief in this direction for another five years. Bishop ncQuaid’s Anniversary. Saturday was the thirty-fourth anni versary of the consecration of Bishop McQuaid of the Diocese of Rochester and services in honor of the event were held in St. Patrick’s Cathedral Sunday at -which a large number of priests were present.
