Malone, August 6.—Adolph Corrow, Lower Constable street, claims the un- ique distinction of having raised more children than any other man in the county.

Mr. Corrow boasts he has brought up 42 children, 12 of whom were his own, 28 of whom were adopted, and the remaining two the children of his second wife. Of his own children, all but two have died. He educated the eritire brood and feels proud of the feat. TURTLE WAS FAR FROM HOME Labeled by Ed. Smith at Raquette Lake in 1902—Picked Up at Tsatasa- wassa Lake. Arthur C. Ferguson, of West Sand Lake, while fishing at Tdatasawaasa lake in Rensselaer county caught a barge snapping turtle that had a brass plate riveted to his shell inscribed: \Ed. Smith, Raquette Lake, N.. Y., 1902.\ Raquette Lake in the heart of the Adirondacks and is nearly 200 miles from Tsataswassa lake. How much ground the turtle has covered since he was tagged in 1902, whether he made the entire trip under his own power or got a lift from time to time from friendly automojbillsts, probably never will be known. It Is not un- common to see turtles on the highway and, while dead woodchucks, rabbits, eats and other animals are frequently seen,•• there are no dead turtles; possi- bly because they move along at an even gait and are about as easy to dodge as e^ rock. Mr. Ferguson liberated the turtle again at Cooper pond, Sycaway, Rens- &elaer county, and notified Llewellyn Legge, chief of the division of fish and game of the Conservation Department. The conservation law prohibits the taking/ killing, or exposing for sale of all land turtles or tortoises, includ- ing the box turtle or wood turtle.

Justice Wihaui#i JQMuyiing, in his decision on the application of Franklin C. Sbafer, 22, Mount Vernon, for a certificate of reasonable doubt in his convietion of manslaughter, second de- gree, denies the application. Shafer was convicted June 28 of having caused the death of-Frank Hoffman, Utica, by striking him with an auto- mobile, \driven by defendant in an unlawful, reckless, dangerous and culp- ably negigent manner, while under the influence of liquor.\ The accident oc- curred near Boonville.

Justice Dowling in his decision says: \The claim is made the verdict of guilty was contrary to law, contrary to and against the weight of evidence. In this very distressing case I would be most happy If I could reach that conclusion.\ The court commends Lloyd P. Btry- ker, New York, for the manner in which he defended his client, and District Attorney, Charles L. De- Angelis, who appeared for the people in the trial,, and who opposed the granting of the certificate of reason- able doubt. Had it been granted Shaf- er could have applied for release on bail pending the final determination of the Appellate Dlvison, Rochester, on the appeal taken there by-Mr. Stryker for the defendant. CARS CRASH AT ROAD JUNCTION Mrs. John MaeDonald, of Potsdam, Dies Instantly When Head Hits Large Rock. Her head crushed against a targe rock when her car was thrown from the highway three miles north of Potsdam on the Potsdam-Norwood road, Mrs. John MaeDonald, 60, of of that village, was killed instantly. Her husband, John MaeDonald, who was riding with her, was cut on the head and back, but escaped serious injury. The MaeDonald machine, with Mrs. MaeDonald driving, was struck by a car driven by Samuel Katzman, 1151 Academy street, Watertown. The cars came together as Mrs. MaeDonald was turning Into the state road off a side road leading to the plant of the Raquette River Paper Company. Her car was turned around' and tossed against a roadbank by the crash, and she 'and her husband thrown out. Mrs. MaeDonald is be- lieved to have ^died almost Instantly. Nobody waB held for the death of Mrs. MaeDonald. She is survived by her husband, employe of the paper company, and a daughter In Norwood. MaeDonald had gone to the plant to draw his wages, it being pay day. Taxes Paid by Power Compaines. Taxes paid by the eletrjc light and power companies In 1928 were the highest on record, making.a total of $165,000,000, according to the National {Electric Light Association. . This is about ten per cent of the aniount col- lectedly .the companies from their customers, so that ten cents out. of every dollar paid by the customer goes to the government, local, >.state or national, and not to the companies. During the past fifteen years taxes have Increased almost twice as rapidly, for the utilities as have their revenues from customers.. In 1928,. revenues were approximately seven times as great as they were in 1912, but taxes were nearly thirteen times as large. This rate of increase la more than three and one-half times that of the steam railroad, whose taxes are now only three and a half times what they were in 1912. The taxes that wiir be paid during 1929 are estimated as follows: electric light and power. $172,000,000; electric railways. $62,000,000; manufactured gas, J54.000.000 and telephone and* tele- garpb, $100,000,000. \The Donovan Affair,\ Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with Satur- day Matinee. Another of those mystery stories that keeps everyone on edge until the final turn of the curtain is on the program for the last of the week at the Opera House. It is a feature that has met with the approval of the theatre-going people wherever played. The story in brief is Jack Donovan, a well-known gambler and man of af- fairs has gotten himself deeply in debt, and ia also mixed up with several women, and ha« made a host of en- emies. At the moment he is having several affairs, and one of the fair ladles whom he has compelled to give him considerable money, refuses. A birthday party is being held and when the lights are turned off he is found mysteriously murdered. To make the problem more difficult, the detectives compel a reproduction of the scene at the dinner party, and at this there is another of the party killed. The un- ravelling of this mixture proves very Interesting. The cast is in the hands of Jack Holt, who has the leading role, Dorothy Revier, Willie Collier, Jr., John Roche, Agnes Ayres, Wheeler Oakman, Ethel Wales, and other strong members of the Columbia Pic- tures, all-talking staff. There are twelve famous stars In the cast. Rem- ember the matinee Saturday. \Noah'» Ark\ Four days Next Week, One of the Greatest Pictures Put Out This Year. The coming of \Noah's Ark,\ the screen's most collosal spectacle, re- vives interest in the Deluge, found among primitive peoples. By deluge is meant a great flood or submersion of (he earth and the various leg- ends are centnallzed in one great story. The autnor says that, \More than the art, more than the spectac- le, I hope it shall be found there is a great spiritual message in \Noah's Ark.\ The picture in its ancient se- quences goes back to the time of Noah. In its modern scenes it in- cludes the recent thrilling events of the world war, accompaning a tra- dition representing thousands of years of its earliest to its latest devel- opments. In a unique manner a thrill- ing love story is interwoven-through- out the unfolding of the massive spec- tacles uniting the two great disasters of the world's history. At the head of the cast is George O'Brien, Dolores Costello, Noah Berry and Louise Fazenda, More than 10,000 extras were used in presenting the revels of the ancients and the Deluge itself. It is a Warner production, which is a guaran- tee of the excellence of the talking end of the play, and the Bibical texts and selections of history are a liberal edu- cation for the people of to-day, who are not as familiar with the history of two of the greatest'events of the world as they should be. It is a four-day pro- gram, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 12, IS, 14 and 15. This Is a production that Is now being played In New York at $2.00 a seat and Is down for an indefinite run, with v the critics praising it to the ekies, olalmlnjT that patrons should atHHt two BIJOU THEATRE, LOWVILLE, PROGRAMME FOR THE WE£K \Fashion In Love,\ with Adolphe Men- jou To-Night For the Last Time One of the most popular of the lovers on the scenic stage—Adolpbe Menjou, will be seen here to-night at the Bijou in \Fa*htons in Love,\ a' play which fits him admirably. The character is that of a popular musi- cian, whom the ladies all fall for, and have as a craze. They flock around him and at last he loses his head, until brought back to earth by bis wife, who awakens him from his temporary lapse of memory. He is admirably sup- ported. Friday and Saturday, August 9 and 10 \The Girl Overboard\ It Is seldom that Mary Philpin has such a part given her as the one she takes in her latest picture, \The Girl Overboard.\ It is taken from the real life of the dock hahitutes of the larger cities, and shows a new form of the underworld that has not been depleted by the writers. The story is one that will keep you on edge from the first to the last turn of the wheel. She is admirably supported by such good actors as Otis Harlan, Edmund Breese, Mary Alden, Fred McKaye and others. Remember the matinee on Saturday, and a full show after the band concert. The usual ccmedy and the new serial will be on these nights. Monday and Tuesday, August 12 and 1$ jrh* Duke Steps Out,\ with William f Haines and Joan Crawford These two popular movie stars jtfave a play that is especially fitted to their talents. It is the story of a prize fight- er who is attending college and desires to keep his real profession from his fellow students, but in doing so he gets into more scrapes than usual and gets out of them in the usual Haines way— creating a laugh and an interest that is worth white. There are several good boxing matches that will keep the young atheletes on their toes until the final ring of the curtain. Joan Craw- ford, as the supporting star, has one of the best characters of her career, and this pair are admirably supported by that king of comedians, Karl Dane, who has a style ail his own that no one yet has been able to imitate. Remem- ber the special matinees on Monday. BASE BALL AT COUNTY FAIR Tuesday, August 20th, 2 p. m.—Car- thage vs. Brown-Llpe Chapin, Syra- cuse. .

TIGHTENS UP ON BONDS Bootteggers Who Try to Put Up \Straw Bonds\ WUl be Blocked by Federal Court. Bootleggers who try to put up \straw bonds\ for their release in Federal courts of this district are go- ing to find it more difficult. Judge Frank Cooper and Judge Frederick H. Bryant have issued an order to the U. S. commissioners about the district requiring more strict qualifications for persona] bonds. This is because a number of bonds heretofore have proved valueless. The court now requires that per- sons desiring to become sureties shall prove their title by submitting the original deed, or certified copy, or other paper, like a will, to prove they own the real estate.

Visions of great hydroelectric plants, all over the na- tion, are conjured up, based on the theory that the coal supply, in the not distant future, will be. exhausted, or that coal will be abandoned as an economic expediency for water power,\ says Thomas A. Edison in Nation's Business, % \Now the fact is that this country has merely scratched the surface of its coal deposits. The coal supply will last indefinitely. It is nothing to bother about. \Another fact is that hydroelectria power will never supplant fuel as a generator, since water power, In order to be utilized to its greatest efficiency,, is generally dependent upon operating in a network system, linked witb fuel burning plants. \Developed water power today is but a small fraction of the power re- quired in the country, the balance being essentially generated from fo«l- burning plant*. Approximately 80 per cent or the undeveloped water rtower of the country lies in the Rocky Mountains and in the Pacific Opast^ regten,. The large market for unfortunately, is east of the sippl. Great as have been the vances 'in trasmlssion of electricity; the art has not yet reached a stage- that makes it probable, or even possi- ble, for electrical energy to be trans- mitted from the Pacific to the Atlantic \The charge has been made that when coal has been exhausted the- country will be dependent upon wat«r power alone. The coal mined to date is less than one per cent of the avail-; able, supply. On the other hand, the efficiency of coal utilisation is low and has steadily increased with the de- velopment of the art to about 20 per cent, with the possibility of this goring- still higher. Water power now-«per»» i ates at over 90 per cent and has about reached perfection in its utilisation;.' \With the continued Improvements in the burning of fuels yet to come t& offset the increased power demands; the coal supply will carry us Indefi- nitely into the future, water powers then as now, will be quite inadequate, to meet the.jcUm&ficis for electrical power, and posterity will have to de- velop other substitutes. But that ia so far in the future that it is a matter of small concern today.\ - \'3k .1* :\& '••*:;? -3f if Local Man Appointed Flyin Repveseav taUve.
