Address. ^‘War Departin?Ht”, Herkimer Democrat ary work at home. Everyone is pleased that the com­ mittee in “ Post Offices and Post Eoads” in Congress has recommend­ ed that Rnral Preo delivery carriers receive $10 more per month. Afe the last meeting Com. Watkins introduced a resolution asking Our aa- semhlyman and senator to work for a $100,000 appropriation for district school libraries. The same was car­ ried. The following resolution was also unanimously aobpted: Whereas, Congressman Currier ,has introduced a bill in Congress to appropriate $34,000,000 for State aid, making $8,000,000 available each year to he apportioned to the states in the Union desiring to accept the same and apportioning the money to the states according to their population thus entitling the state of New York to $3,000,000 on condition that the state of New York raise an equal amount of money for road work and agree to maintain the roads When built, therefore he it Resolved; That East Schuyler Grange do hereby request and urge our represent­ ative in congress to use all honor­ able means in securing the passage of the “ Currier hill.” Farm and . . Grang'e N e w s Conducted hy *. JAS. a STEELE Hesrkxaaef, JST. Y, To whom aH correspoir:'- ^ ence for this department ^ should be addressed, The next meeting of Pomona Grange will be held in Grange Tem­ ple on Saturday next and an interest­ ing session is anticipated. Besides the usual order of business, delegates to the State Grange will render re­ ports from that body. This has long been the custom and sometimes it requxies two or more sessions to complete the work. Would not a better plan been which will stimulate the indus of their people. The contest between Russia and Japan is therefore watched with con­ siderable interest for the result v?ill either stimulate or embarass accord­ ing to which Power shall he vicror- Should victory perch on th^banner of Japan our opportunities'^in un­ developed Asiatic markets now moss select one of their number before ad- I attractive would be easily accessible journment furnishing their represcn- | owing to the foothold already estab- tative with such facts jis they deem ’ ' ’ essential and wish incorporated in the report. It would save valuable time and eliminate ranch that is re­ garded as prelude and posfiludo on account of its remoteness from the central thought. While it is evident that, the Grange is a large factor in legislative sug­ gestion and is influentiial in cultivat­ ing sentiment favorable to the en­ actment of helpful laws yet like many other associations it is liable to for get that it is sometmes best to adopt the old maxim and“ make haste slow­ ly.” The question of good roads has been a favorite theme for several years and thanks to grange effort has received several encouraging enact ments and is now in the experimental stage. A favorable public sentiment has been created and it seems unwise to tinker that sanbimanb until it shall defeat all opportunity for de­ velopment. The x\merican farmer in common with every commercial interests is directmg his attention to the clash of arms in the far East. While he may not be foremost in National Councils or entrasted with the art of diplomacy yet his interestS'are as vital as those of’the manufacturer, the speculator or the jobber who has invested in enterprises now endangered by the occupancy of contending armies. The Amercan people are produc­ ing much more than they consume and any disturbance that ^interferes with or destroys markets alro ;dy ac­ quired or prevents the openng of new channels of trade enfeebles our vi­ tality and lessens our’possibilities for growfa and achievement. The 'undeveloped markets of the world are a prize worth contending for and wa must remember that weave not alone in the race for commercial opportunities. E p ry prominent nation in Europe is making s efforts to establish the iish-'d in the Pacific, hnt in the event of Russian suprstaacy in the pouidiug conflict the rivalry among nations wonld be intensified and onr limit­ ations greatly reduced. There is now little difficulty in marketing our surplus crops hut when the great west becomes fully develop­ ed through modern methods we must have a ?are outlet for our wheat and other staples. Don’t get frightened; Pure water is still cheap. 'We learn that a farmer into the neighborhood of Malone has purchased thirty four pounds of Japan tea fearing a rise in that article in consequence of the Jappaning is evidently a favorite art with some people. EAST SOHDYLER GRANGE. The regular meeting was held Wednesday evening having been post­ poned one day on account of the storm. R. H. Smith spent a part of the weak in Syracuse in the interest of State Grange work. East Schuyler Grange is to have a new piano. ft was voted to rent one for the year with the privilege of buying. There is considerable talk in this vicinity of starting a Grange store in Frankfort. At the last meeting the lecturer’s hnur was devoted to the discussion of ‘ ’ Good Roads. ’ ’ Ec developed the fact that of the 40 path masters in town, only three had returned their warrants. It is claimed that not half of tlie road tax is worked out in the town. The Grange is going to appoint a committee to see that the law is enforced the coming year. On accontof the severe chid weather undoubtedly accounts for the advance in prices recently. We have finally got onr hens to lay­ ing We believe that the meat scraps and ground bone was largely responsible for the hens’ action into the matter. J. H. J. Watkins speaks on the subject of “ Good Roads” at Van Hornesville nest week. Our last Masonic Donations, The committees having in charge the soliciting, contests and other ar­ rangements or the coming Masonic fair continue to perfect the same and following each committee meeting favorable reports of progress are marie. In the various contests a large num­ ber have allready entered and there Will be many more. Toe contests grange meeting suggested that there ijviU be, the most exciting of any ever is a chance to do considerable mission- » held by a fair here. Herkimer Man’s Invention. A. W. Wilson of this village has perfected an invention to bo known as a wall protector and his application for a patent is now pending. The use of the invention as its name indicates is' to protect walls when cleaning them. It is constructed of fiber and rubber and those having seen it demonstrated consider it success. Mr. Wilson says he has refused large offer for a half interest in his invention. 0. E. Naugle Injured- O. E. Naugle one of the local letter carries was confined to his home the past week with severe in - juries. Mr. Naugle keeps fowls and had made a bone cutter to provide them with fresh bone. On the machine he had placed a heavy bal­ ance wheel and when operating the cutter his coat was oaugh t dragging his face down on the moving ma­ chine. He sustained a laceration under tlie left eye requiring six stitches and his coat was torn from his hack. How's Tliis?

THE BROWN CASE Continues to Occupy the Attention of Judge Devendorf—Testi­ mony About the Same The second trial of Bert G. Brown charged with causing an employe to commit arson continues to occupy tlie attention of Judge Devendorf in the county court. The second trial has now been iu progress for a week, and the defense is now on, commencing Tuesday afternoon. While the case is hsiiig more close­ ly contested this trial, the evidence is of the same nature with but few ex­ ceptions. as in tbe first trial. The people beside the book keeper mentioned in Saturday’s issue have called two other new witnesses, Thomas Burns another fireman and Walter Becker an insurance agent. Officer Long agai»'st whom Mr. Mills seems to turn loose all his sar- ■Wide Tires. Bitter complaint is coming in from many jiarts of the state that thought­ less men finding that the improved road will permit them to carry from, two to six tons on a wagon, will places this weiaht upon a narrovy-tired wagon and then proceed to go over the state, county and town roads and mutilate the road by cutting ruts; which could he avoided if the load were placed on broad-tired wagons. The sense of ownership in the reals' on the part of the residents of the county and town who paid for roads is incensed at the destruction of county and town property by thought­ less men of this character. Your Gommittee, therefore, recommend the introduction of the wide-tire bill, which was introduced a year ago, and which passed the Senate, but which failed of passage in tbe zis- sembly,and further recommend a res­ olution directing a change in the oasm was ebargd with adfliag to liis | nmsances as ap- avideDoe of the previous trial as was f » - Harry Becker ap msniauce ageat. f ’’f b/ John Crowley'; the witness with the carry an excessive load that injures the road, in order to punish a care­ less offender. Your Committee re­ alize that much of the harm done to abnormally developed sense of snaell testified Tuesday, and on his cross examination claimed to have smelled the odor of burning oil while running as fast as possoible in Second street, 100 feet from John street. He fixed the position on a map and said he was 75 feet from the fire. The distance between the two points given by witness would he the hypot­ enuse of a right angle 90 feet on one side, about 200- feet on the other. Fire Chief Cooney one of the people’s witnesses had been in tbe store since tbe last trial. He s.i,w the stove in the workshop when Morau had a fire in it. He said on cross examination that the sheet iron part contained holes and (he rigs of the base were warped. District Attorney Ward’s strenuous­ ly objectons that witness could not characterize the stove' were over ruled. Witness said smoke puffed from the stove into the room. Mr. Mills commenced his opening at 4:20 Tuesdav, occupying the rest of the day. The taking of evidence in the defense was commenced this morning. fWiiat SLall We Have for Dessert?
