Rice's Thoroughbred Dairy of 32 Head is Briefing Him About P«>~VVeeJr7~ The price paid for milk delivered at the Lowville Milk and Cream Company station has been advanced from $1.65 to $1.76 per hundred, which i» equiva- lent to 3J cents per quart The milk is shipped to New York. The milk stations are certainly a great benefit to Lewis county farmers, nearly all of whom are engaged in dairying. A few years ago good farms could be pur- chased in Lewis county at from $26 to $30 per acre, but the milk stations and general advance in values of all kinds of farm produce has served to add to the value of farm lands and they do nojt go begging on the market In fact but few are offered for sale. The pre- vailing high prices for mi Ik. butter and cheese is also serving to inspire farm- ers to improve their, herds. Leonard C. Rice, of Lowville, is reaping a rich harvest from his efforts in this direc- tion. A few years ago he commenced to breed thoroughbred Holsteins and he now has a dairy of 32 head, from which be is delivering an average of 800 pounds daily to the Lowville Milk and Cream station, which at the pres- ent price of $1.76 per hundred brings him $14.08 per day, or $98.56 per week.' Mr. Rice receives the largest checks of any patron of the station, although there are several farmers who have much larger dairies in number of cows. It is conceded that Mr. Rice has one of the best dairies in the State for milk production. The daily re- ceipts of milk at the Lowville station average about 11,000 pounds. / Sal* of Bankrupt Stock. /Charles S. Mereness, Jr., trustee in ^bankruptcy of D.

Louis Bh \ Tempest and Sunshine\ Next Tuesday Evening, November 16th. \Tempest and Sunshine,\ a drama- tization of Mary J. Holmes' well-known and popular novel, will be presented at Lowville opera house next Tuesday evening, November 16th. The play has as its foundation, the contrasts of character in the two sisters, out of which grow naturally and inevitably the episodes and entanglements which combine to make the plot Dr. Lacey is, by virtue of his relations with them both; so involved in their interests as to become the central figure of the story. \Tempest's\ rather passionate nature leads her into mistakes which bring her the most serious conse- quences, though she is by no means the sort of woman whose conduct can be made the subject of reprobation. The villian of the play is personated by the village postmaster, Joseph Dunn, at first a mysterious individual but who afterwards turns out to be a rather common kind of criminal. —Cider barrels fo? sale.

Exploding Lamp Cause* Death of Mrs. John Dortey. Mrs. Barbara Dorsey, wife of John Dorsey, who lives on the Turnpike be- tween Carthage and Natural Bridge in the town of Wilna, was burned to death Monday evening at her home by the explosion of a lamp in the living room of the house. No one was present ex- cept her husband, who endeavored, un- successfully, to smother the flames. She was so terribly burned that her injuries proved fatal and~she died about midnight. The curtains and walls of the living room were set on fire, but the flames were extinguished by Mr. Dorsey before\ they did any great amount of damage. Mrs. Dorsey's clothing was almost burned from her body, which was charred from head to foot. Mrs. Dorsey was 35 years of ajre and was married to Justice-Elect Edgar S, K. Merreli the Guest of Honor of Watortowtt Produce Exchange. With~Judge Edgar 3. K. Merreli, of Lowville, the center of interest, 180 of the leading cheese makers and rep- resentative citizens of Jefferson and Lewis counties gathered around the banquet boatoUat the Hotel Le Ray in Watertown last Friday evening and in a manner fitting the occasion observed the fourteenth annual gathering of the Watertown Produce Exchange, a body famous the country over, controlling, aft it does, the cheese market of the United States and Canada. Previous to the banquet a reception took place in the hotel lobby, when an occasion was offered everyone to shake hands with the victor of the \recent judicial fight. For an hour the lobby waa thronged, many from town who had no intention of attending the ban- quet, calling to congratulate Judge Mer- rell. When President Phelps announced the names of those who should lead in entering the dining room the mention of Judge Merreli's name brought out applause that ta.sted fully two minutes. It was after 11 o'clock before Toast- master Harold J. Richardson, of Low-1 ville, arose and addressed the banquet- ers. His remarks werJ brief, intro- ducing President Phelps, who told Judge Merrell how glad everyone was thatfie was presehTand likewise-wel- coming and introducing Prof. Publow, of Cornell University, who spoke on the \Needs of the Dairy Industry in This State.\ The remarks of Senator George Cobb were devoted to a ten-minute talk on agricultural legislation. The Senator dwelt upon the effect that legislation had had in preventing adulterations and protecting the honest producer against the other class. S. B. Richardson, Harvey Steele and D. C. Douglass spoke, and at the con- clusion Judge Merreli was introduced amid much applause. Taking as his topic \Little \Lewis Judge Merreli spoke in a jocular vein, making only brief reference to politcal matters. Among those in attendance from Lowville were Hon. Edgar S. K. Mer- reli, Eugene Arthur, Henry Slack, George D. Jackson, Leon S Miller, George S. Reed, Harvey F. Farrington, S. Brown Richardson, Harold J. Rich- ardson, Rayomnd S. Richardson, How- ard C.

Thousands of buohels of potatoes were ruined in Lewis county by the heavy frosts that came on October 28th and 29th. Just how serious the damage is cannot be definitely determined at present, though the loss will run up into the thousands of bushels. The severity of the freeze may be understood when it is known that the thermometer registered as low as 19 dgrees, freezing the ground several inches in depth. Owing to the lateness of the crop digging was not completed as early as usual this fall, and even now some fields remain undug. Consequently when the heavy freeze came the last week in October there was a large acre- age of potatoes yet to be harvested. The potato crop in northern New York this season was one of the largest and finest ever produced, but the damage from the freeze will seriously reduce the yield. Death of Jacob Scherer. y/Jacob Scherer, who had been in poor *nealth for \a long time, and confined to his bed for several months, died Satur- day evening at the home of his daugh- ter, Mrs. Marian Feisthamel, in this village, aged nearly 86 years.

Th* work of removing 257 bodies of soldiers from the old to the new ceme- tery at Madison Barracks was begun Tuesday. The contract was let to Mr. Whitbeck, of Schenectady.who expects to accomplish the work without any difficulty. Among the bodies that will be re- moved is that of General Pike, the dis- coverer of Pike's Peak. In the ceme- tery are 114 graves of unidentified dead. The majority are graves of those who participated in the war of 1812, though the cemetery has served to receive all those who died at the post later on. In digging for the hos- pital basement graves were encoun- tered, and in one was\ discovered a skull, with a bit of gold lace uniform and British button's. Close by in an- other grave but a few bones, hardly enough to fill a shoe box, were found. Replacing the Mill Dam. The work of replacing the dam across Mill creek near Morrison's mill will be completed this week at an expense of about $250. Fortunately the timbers were not carried down stream below the railroad bridge, and all the material was recovered in good condition. A\ special effort is being made to securely anchor the dam to the end that it will not be carried out a second time by the, heavy pressure of water, \^ m. the local yards, was at the western limits of the yard. Smith was tempor- arily acting as fireman and Beels was at the throttle.. The engine was about to go to one of the quarries to do some work. Conductor James Murphy of the shifter was at the switch throwing it, while the shifter was stationary. East- bound freight train No. 95. came from Watertown, with about 40 cars. She was running about seven miles an hour and collided head on with the shifter. When the crash came the cab of the shifter was crushed. Smith was caught between the tender and the boiler head and was terribly crushed. Beels was hit on the head and his skull fractured, causing the brains to ooze from the wound. The tender of the shifter en- gine was derailed, but the engine re- i mained on the track Mrs. Charles Woodard, Mr*. Julia Grant and Mrs. Julia Thornhill Rendered Helpless at One Time. In lees than one hour's time three women, including Mrs, Charles Wood- ard, Mrs. Julia Grant and Mrs. Julia Thornhill, all in the eame house at the time, at Gonverneur, we^re stricken down in a peculiar and rather serious manner with what by the latest reports has been diagnosed as apoplexy of the stomach. For some time the unfortu- nates suffered intensely, but all have recovered.- It was first thought the three had fallen a prey to ptomaine poisoning, or that they had been seized by the dread infantile paralysis which haa scared the community lately. Mrs. Woodard, in whose house the sickness occurred, was the first to be Btricken, and her sister, Miss Viola Ware, who was with her, summoned Dr. Allen. When the physician arrived Mrs. Wood- ward was in a sort of a paralytic state, and waB able to move but a very little, complaining of a numbness all over her body. A few minutes after the doctor had left Miss Ware went into the other part of the house, and found Mrs. Thornhill lying prostrate on the floor, while Mrs. Grant, of Edwards, who was visiting at the house, was stretched out in a chair where she was sitting when she was stricken. The symptoms of the latter two patients were prac- tically the same aa-in Mrs. Woodatd!i m. case, both of them experiencing numb- ness, and being for some little time in a semi-paralytic state. The coincidence is a very peculiar one and the circum- stances surrounding it can harldy be accounted for. DIPHTHERIA IN HOSPITAL at Nine Case* in Institution but Efforts Are Being Made to SuppreM Disease. About two weekB ago a patient was received at the Sister's hospital in Watertown, and in a few days it was discovered that he war Buffering with diphtheria. Sister lola, the superin- tendent in charge of the hospital, im- mediately informed Health Officer E. S. Wi I lard of the presence of the case, and asked him to have the patient re- moved from the hospital. He informed her that he knew of no other place to take the patient, and, there being no other course up to the hospital authorities, the patient was allowed to remain in a back room as far remote from the other patients as possible, and all possible precaution waa used to prevent the spread of the disease. Another patient took the disease, and both have died Bince. At the present time there are nine cases of the disease at this hospital, seven of them the lay nurses and the other two being patients brought there for treatment. All the cases have been removed to the nurses home, which waa pressed into service for the use, after having been thoroughly prepared. The hospital has been thoroughly fumi- gated, and every medical effort pos- sible is being used to check the spread of the disease. Hirschey—Kohler. The marriage of John C. Hirschey, of Utica, and Miss Rose H. Kohler, of this village, was solemnized at 8 a. m. yesterday by Rev. Lester G.

Although the game laws as amended this year permit deer hunters to shoot bucks until sundown November 16, there have not been a great many of these animals killed Bince the general open season for deer terminated. Doubtless the main reason for this is to be found in the fact that Jhe con- ditions for hunting in the Adirondacks were very unfavorable last week. About three inches of snow fell early in the week, but speedily melted and then the ground froze. The result was that Btill hunting was practically out of the question, as the deer could hear a man walking through the woods a long distance away. Was Born in Carthage. ., Stevie D.
