Interesting Meetings That Have Brought -Wealt h and Honor to the Southern States—Eminent Ken Inter ­ esting Themselve e in the Hatter. (Special Correspondence.) \Talloaks from little acorns grow.\ From a little acorn of an apparently •unsueeessful effort of a few earnest men .begun in 1884 has grown the tree of the present, which now is rooted in every -Southern State, has spread its boughs into nearly every state in the Union; •and already dropped valuable results upon the land from which it-grows. In December 1888, a semi-official conven­ tion was held and an organization effect­ ed under the title of the Southern It- .ter-State Immigration Association. The words, and Industrial Congress, .bavo since been added. At that con­ vention an Executive Committee con­ sisting of one man from seventeen Southtern States were elected and a General Manager appointed. Various plans were\ tried and efforts made to get the idea of the work into the minds of the people of the South, and circular matter for information m-as scattered through the North. In December of 1890, a convention •was held at Ashville, N. C, by that •convention, new plans were laid strong resolutions were adopted, some changes jnade in the arrangements, and a gen­ eral forward impulse given to the work. In October of 1893 a meeting of the . .Executive Committee was held at •Chicago. 'From, that meeting ernan. .ated the following.'

The next section gives .the official-endorse­ ment, and a promise of the. character of the men who are -to -compose the con­ vention. We say, .right here, as to the personal of the convention the .promise was fully met. The object of the Con- gress is as fully set forth in the call. We will now show the res.ponse to the call, and then attempt .to show the work of the Congress.

And that these advan­ tages, products and resources must be shown by State Expositions, a Perma­ nent Exposition at Washington, D. C, temporary Expositions at State and County Fairs in tho Northern States; and by trains of cars carrying an Ex­ position to the doors of the citizens of the larger towns at the North. The summer meeting of this Con­ gress ended with a grand barbecue at tho locks of the canal which gives Au­ gusta her vast water power. We say the meeting came to an end. Not the Congress; that advanced. All previ­ ous conventions have died with the end of tho last meeting; to be called to life again only when one or two persons whose heart and life are in the work, could induce the Governors of the States interested to appoint delegates to a new Congress. This Congress is still alive, adjourned to meet again within a year: possibly in some Northern city. The work Of immigration has now the continuous support of official and popular life. This Congress will push the woi'k, unless cliques of men and selfish interests, envious, and jealous of wiser and more successful men. shall succeed in wresting it from a wise man­ agement, and in placing it in the hands of unwise, inexperienced and selfish ambition. A DB8PBKATB BATTLE. An Infuriate d Stallion Nearly Kill* Hie Owner at Varysburg- . Orla Lawrence of Varysburg, while at work with bis team mowing grass one day last week, had an experience with a stallion that he will always remember, and those who witnessed' the fight will not want to see such a sight again. The stallion had behaved more or less badly all day. About 4 p. m. Mr. Law- rence.unhitched the, horses- from the mower .and soon, after, they both got away and ran a short distance. ,-Mr.Law- rence soon caught up. wltjhi tho. horses and undertook to teach .the.stallion'the difference \irhenthe ( fteepenta^httootpli after'biting, the man two brihreei ^g^m^-^*^ r between^ right ; aa (T r wrongj animal turned on/him and v a' Then,the .hbra^eWdown an; keeping his hold on :'tae' prwtrato^mani He 'then-shook \his . victlmWt) Internals of a few seconds, the man -lying on ^ the ground.'' The ' horse maintained his hold > of the man's arm, under heavy blows from stones and sticks, until James Barns with a well directed blow over the ear stunned the horse and he let go. The horse during \the > fight never offered to use his feet. Dr. S. S. Kennedy was called and dressed the arm. There were eight deep holes in the arm. Into some of them one or two fingers could be inserted at a time. Mr. Lawrence is resting well at present and if blood-poisoning does not set in he may in two or three weeks be able to use his arm again. HIS LIFE WORKENDED Sudden Death of Doctor Eugene B. Freudenthal. Out Sown in the Prune of Manhood — A Skillful Practitione r Who Will be Greatly Missed by the Entire Com­ munity—The Funeral Held Honday. Eugene B. Freudenthal, one of the most prominent, widely known,, and respected citizens of Bliss died at his residence, Saturday morning at seven o'clock. He had been in poor health for some time, being subject to attacks of neural, gia of the heart, but appeared as well as usual Friday evening. He told several friends a few weeks ago that he could not live through many more of these spells, but nothing was thought of the remark at the time, yet it ap­ pears that he knew his condition better than anybody else. About 12 o'clock he complained that he did not feel well, and sank rapidly becoming unconscious for nearly two hours before ho died. Cut down in the prime of life, with a brilliant future before him, surrounded by everything that went to make life pleasant, his death has cast a gloom over the entire community,' and those who knew him best have lost a true and consistent friend and a skilled physi­ cian. He leaves a wife, (nee Miss Olive Charles of Sandusky,)whom he married less than a year ago; two sons, Almond and Harold; a father, mother, and one brother, residing in Albany, and a host of friends throughout the community. our moat useful and respected members. Resolved, That not. only .will our order miss our departed brother Sir Knight, but the coiu- rnuqfcy at lai ^ffihefr 'fcsV^^rlend, one who wiiajjways ready to mini.-'ter\'to of nelj^bors and friends, never thinking -about himself. That cheering greeting, as we have assembled in our Tent will be heard no more, but his memory will live as long as Bliss Lodge and its members shall exist. Keeolded, That we extend to the family, the relatives and friends of our Brother Sir Knight our deepest sympathy, and especially does our sympathy go out to tho Uttlo^amily, left alone^ wltlfho husband and father. ** -Resolved, That our Charter be draped lu mourning for thirty days, and that a copy of theae resolutions be posted In our lodge rooms and] published in the Wyoming County HER­ ALD,:'and the Bee Hive, and that a copy be sent to the widow of our deceased Brother Sir Knleht. j ^ )' MAX CAUSE HIS DEATH.

Wil­ liams of Poughkeespie, J .Li .Woodworth of Warsaw, A. B. Bradley of Wyoming, and E. G. Matthews of Perry, met in LeRoy to consider action in the matter of equalization 'by their respective towns. Mr. Williams is one of the state assessors. LeRoy was chosen as a place of meeting on accountof conven­ ience of location. Qot the Wrong Bottle. Joseph Sullivan, of Arcade, by mis­ take gave his seven-year-old boy a dose of a solution of corrosive sublimate Sun­ day evening and then to show the child that it was not as unpleasant to the taste as the child pretended, took some of the poison himself. An emetic soon relieved the boy but the father remained in a critical condition until Monday, when it was thought that the chances were good of his recovery un­ less inflammation of the internal or­ gans set in. The boy had complained of being unwell and the father went to a pantry to secure some liquor. Upon a shelf were two bottles, one in which was the liquor and another of the same size in whksh was the corrosive subli­ mate. The room being quite dark Mr. Sullivan did not notice his mistake un­ til he himself had tasted of the liquor. Xt. Xorris Will Celebrate. Representative business men of Mt. Morris held aineetirig Monday evening to take measures looking' to-a proper celebration of the 100th anniversary 'of the settlement of Mt. Morris. It was largely attended and much interest was manifested. Committees were appointed to look after details. Nothing will be left undone to make the celebration a DR. E. S. FREUDENTHAL.. Dr. Freudenthal was in his thirty- sixth year. He was born in Albany, and lived there to early manhood, when taking a deep interest in medical matters, determined to pursue a,regu lar course of study. Accordingly he entered the Lewiston (Maine) College of Medicine and Surgery and graduated with high honors. In 1880 he married Miss Jessie E, Hunt of Lewiston, Maine, and practiced his profession in various parts of the state, finally locating in Bliss in 188\ where he had built up a progressive practice, and was regarded as an ex­ ceptionally successful practitioner The funeral was held at his late home Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and was largely attended; Rev. A. H. Mason of the M. E. Church, conducting the services, taking for his text, the 16th verse of chapter four of 11 Corin_ thians; \For which cause we faint not. but though our outward man perish, yet tho inward man is renewed day by day.\ He gave an excellent sermon- The Kbightsof the Maccabees of which the deceased was a member, and the Ladies of the Maccabees attended the funeral in a body. There was a profusion of floral trib­ utes, one, a pillow from the K. O. T. M. with the insignia of the order in tlie center, and many other handsome pieces. Dr. Freudenthal was a charter -mem­ ber of Bliss Tent No. W0, K. O. T. M., a member of the Bliss Board of Trade, and had held the position of Assis{ant Foreman of Eagle Hose Company until recently, when he resigned tho office. Thfere was no person in our town who took a greater interest in the building up of the village than he. Outspoken with the courage of his convictions of right, he made many warm and stead­ fast friends, who sincerely regret his death. He left a policy of insurance in the Knights of the Maccabees,\ for 91,000, and it is regretted by everybody, that he allowed his other insurance of $2,000 to lapse.

Tuesday was the opening day of the Grand Assemby at Silver Lake, for 1894. Tho attendance was large, the exer­ cises full of enthusiasm and interest and the weather of that kind needed to make an outing at tho lake sido enjoy­ able. Several large excursion trains arrived in the morning, crowded with young people wearing the badge of the Y. P. S. C. ~E., for the opening day was devoted to a mass meoting of tho En­ deavor societies. When the hour ar­ rived at which the platform exercises were to open, fully 1,500 peoplo were on the grounds. The principal meeting of the day was the mass convention held at 2 p. m William A. Walker, of Warsaw, Presi­ dent of the Wyoming County Y. P. S C. E., presided. The exercises consist­ ed of singing by the choir, scripture reading by Rev. Mr. Rico, Gainesville; prayer, by Rev. J. C. Long, Bergen: choir, and entertaining address by Rev C. A. Dickinson, of Boston, Vice-Presi­ dent of the order in America. Ho spoke of the great success of the con­ vention held at Cleveland last week, which he said was the largest and best of the thirteen annual meetings yet held since the organization of tho Y, P. S. C. E. The meeting was full of enjoyment to the large audience. At 4 p. m. the dedication exercises of the now chapel at the head of Wesley Avenue were held. Rev. J. T. Can- leld, of Perry, presided. There was music by an improvised choir under Rev. J. F.- Whitney, of Castile. Short addresses were made by Rev. A. F. Colburn, of Perry; Rev. George M. Harris, of Le Roy, and Rev. Ward Piatt, of Rochester. The expenses of building the church had been met by popular subscriptions, but a liberal collection taken up at the dedication will go far towards providing for the furnishing of. the edifice with chairs, matting and pulpit fixtures. Services will be held daily in charge of various pastors on the'grounds. The^ evening programme consisted of the first concert given by the Silver Lake.

An The Bradley Will Case, i n Middlebury th e Bon e of Contention—Many Be­ quest * to Baptist Institutions—Hla - ' tory of the Hatter. Spencer H. Bradley, a wealthy resi­ dent of Middlebury; died threo yeai-s ago, leaving by his will a number of1 charitable bequests to Baptist Church institutions. Allen W. Smith, of Web­ ster, was named as executor. Several irregularities were found to exist in the will and the court was asked to in­ terpret it. The case was referred to Judge Isaac S. Signor, of Albion, who has handed down an exhaustive opinion in which ho says: \This action is brought for the con­ struction of tho will of Spencer H. Bradley, who was a resident of Middle­ bury, Wyoming County. Ho executed his will March 13, 1885', and died Aug­ ust 24, 1891. The will was admitted to probato December 8, 1891. Tho testa­ tor gave his entire ostato to his wifo, subject to certain conditions, to hold during her natural life. Ho also gavo to his mother her support during life. Tho mother has since diod. Ho also directed that $1,000 should be placed in tho hands of a trustee to bo appoint­ ed by his executor, or tho surrogate of Wyoming County, for tho benefit of 'the Baptist Church in Wyoming, Wyoming County, N. Y.,' intorest to bo used, fivo-sixths for pastor's salary and one-sixth for incidental expenses, so long as said church should exist, or in tho words of the will 'This logacy to bo hold in perpetuity, or until said church becomes extinct as a Baptist church organization, in'which case the legacy shall be-.paid.'to. thojBaptist So­ ciety lor Ministerial ^Education located at Rochester,.N..Y.'' ->«;*\&W -• .''•'.'•;• i\ ;'j \After the death 'of t testator>'i>rife, the widow under the statute of distri­ bution should bo paid over to her at once by the executor, although this court has no authority to direct such paymont. \I think that this case is a proper one for awarding costs to all pai'tics, payable from tho estato, as the diffi­ culties arising from tho will has pro­ duced this litigation. Costs should bo awarded to all parties, but where several have appeared by the same at­ torneys only one bill should be allowod.\ The Kyaok Band Fair. osje.year/after, taV tteath oTibe wMow, ^ly:p.\'Bradiey'. f'TjUFJfi |SnW '<^6l «f' estate' he .directs shall, with; the excep­ tion of certain household . effects given to his wife, be paid oyer •' within eigh­ teen months after the decease of his wife as follows, viz: One-third 'to tho Baptist Missionary Union for Foroign Missions with office located in Boston, State of Massachusetts; one-third, to tho Baptist Home Mission Society, with ofllco in New Yoi'k, State of New York and one-third to the Baptist Publication Society, with ofllco in Phil adelphia, State of Pennsylvania.' \I am of tho opinion that, while none of the defendant societies wore cor rectly named in tho will, that they were the parties intended, and that tho legacies should not fail by Voason of any misnomer. \Tho residuary legatees named in the will have all released thoir claims to this bequest, and consented that it may be held to be an absolute gift to the church. They are, however, only residuary legatees as to the remainder, after paying the other legacies, and this being one of tho other logacies, is excluded, and as to this $1,000 he diod intestate. \There was undevised to these socio tics the sum of $150 set apart for tho widow, $1,000 attorapted to bo bequeath ed to the church, but which failed by reason of the illegal suspension, and tho $1,500 legacy which lapsed, mak ing in all undisposed of by tho will the sum of $2,650. The sum necessary to have purchased at the death of the testator the $2,000 logacy payable at the death of the wife computed by tbo an­ nuity tables and found by obtaining tho present worth of $1 at 5 per cent, pay­ able in 6.787 years, which is decimal $.74603, and multiplying this by $2,000 is $1,493.26. Tho sum necessary to havo purchased the life estato of the wife computed by the annuity 'table is $0,- \76.63. \I think that by tho provisions of the will and from the fact that the possession of the real estate may be necessary for the full and complete en­ joyment, that the widow should retain its possession and enjoyment during her lifetime, but I am also of the opin­ ion, especially in view of the decision in re* Mc Dougall, 141 N. Y., 21, and cases there cited, it being: apparent that' the : testator did not intend > that the widow should have the- disposal of any portion of the personal estate,' thai should remain in the hands of and un­ der the control and management of the executor, he receiving and paying over the income to the widow so long as she lives. The two legacies which have failed are held by the executor as trus- For some time past it has been in the minds of the members of tho Nyack Band of Warsaw totakesomo measures to increase their bank account, as well as to provido means wheroby they might purchaso new uniforms andmoro instruments. They accordingly some two months ago, sent out circulars to their friends, and also had tho patrons of the band send them to thoir friends, soliciting contributions, of anything that would be of value which would be sold in due time by. them at a fair, subsequently to be held. The response to those circulars hav°.ooon very gon- erous and as a result they havo a valu­ able collection Of artiolos which will bring quite a revenue when they are disposed of at tho fair. Among tha many things sont them is a beautiful card rocoivor by Sonator Prootor of Vermont, carved from tho very finest marbles in his extensive quarries and said by those acquainted with difforont marbles to bo very valuable. Then again there are a hundred and one things that aro not only of much value but somo of thom quite, unique and will bring monoy when offered for sale.
