\OPPORTUNITY DAYS\ START TODAY IN ARCADE! TRI- -« • ANGLES > ^ A Paul F. Poms During th e absence o f Paul F . Dorris, Harry S. Douglass of Ar­ cade, has very graciously con- •ented to furnish the material for the Tri-Angle s Colum n fo r several •weeks. Blackboards wer e simpl y paint­ ed wide boards . On e local school commissioner used t o carr y a po t of paint an d a brush under his •wagon seat, an d while inspecting the instruction o f the school, woul d refresh th e board . Erasers wer e wooden blocks covere d wit h sheep­ skin or rags . Globes, map s and library books wer e scarce. Th e water suppl y mor e often came from a neighborin g well , and there being \n o germs\ in those days, the bucket, with its common dip ­ per, was successively passe d from aisle to aisle at stated periods each session. One mino r health menac e is noted over and over as local school meeting s passed a rule that \itch shall not b e sent to school.\ The fuel problem wa s solved by requiring of parents one-half cord of seasoned wood per pupil, de ­ livered by Octobe r First. Th e word \seasoned \ wa s liberally interpreted, an d instances of com­ plaint are common; teachers wer e often require d to measure the wood upon deliver y Inasmuch as some patrons were sufficiently ex­ perienced in arranging wood so that a pile d \cord \ migh t have \spaces bi g enoug h to. thro w a cat through.\ Teachers were untrained and in some instances positively ignorant. The \inspector o f schools\ hired and fired and set a premiu m up ­ on a pedagogu e who could make and repair a quill pen an d main­ tain order Women taught sum­ mers when smal l children and girls were th e only pupils, while men were hire d winters when 60 to 70 wer e enrolled, including young me n up to age flwenty or more. Punishment s varie d but whipping was practiced, the dunce-stool occupie d a conspicuous spot, sitting unde r the teacher's desk, or the dreaded penalty o f a big boy being seated amon g the girls wer e common. All things considered, we of this later gen ­ eration canno t but admir e the beautiful penmanship , the ability to read an d spell, and the general educational attainment o f those who rose 'to place s o f eminenc e from the backgroun d of the \dis­ trict school.\ Frontier serenity in the Genesee Country wa s shattered after 1826 by the anti-Masoni c upheaval which followe d the mysterious dis­ appearance of \William Morga n of Batavia who ha d attempted to publish the secrets of the Order The fraternity wa s accused o f the murder althoug h to this da y the ultimate fate o f Morga n has never been determined. Th e whol e epi­ sode soon assume d a decidedly sordid complexio n as opportunists among the politicians o f that day fanned the passions o f voters, so much so that churches wer e split and State elections affected. The abolitionist movemen t very early attracted sympath y in Gene ­ see County. I n Novembe r 1839, Warsaw was hos t t o a convention of anti-slavery me n who nominat ­ ed James G. Birne y as President, and the followin g January a state convention assemble d in Arcad e to name a slate o f candidates. Local residents ha d a leading part in the birth o f th e Liberty Party, and were activ e \conductors\ on the Undergroun d Railroad. Through to Warsaw in 1843 came \Box Mary,\ whose real nam e was Mary Eliza Jones. The story is briefly this: She wa s du e to be sold into th e Deep South an d thus separated from he r mother, whe n two sympathetic Yanke e gentle­ men devised a plan o f secreting the pair in a larg e packin g case and heading North . Quietly leav­ ing Washington, D. C, wit h a team and wagon, an d mother an d child as cargo encased in the packing box in the rear , the men event ­ ually landed their unique load safely in Warsaw. Th e befriended girl, but not the mother, lon g sur­ vived the journey , and she gre w u p to womanhood , an honore d and respected citizen o f that village. One of the most spectacular epi ­ sodes in western New Yor k history wa s the bewilderin g appearance of the Silver Lake Sea Serpent in the summer of 1855. Makin g a nocturnal debut, th e creature dre w thousands to th e shores of the lake, manv believin g that a n ag e old Indian legen d to the effect ithat a large snak e inhabited those waters was true. A harpoonist wa s imported, a watch-towe r erected for a twenty-fou r hou r vigil, and elaborat e preparations wer e made t o confin e the denizen of the deep. Boardin g houses and a lakeside hotel did a thriving business as expectan t visitors gathered. The whole countryside talked of nothin g else for days. Even scientists were fooled and only a few newspape r editors sur­ mised it was a fraud. Occasionally the serpent would put in a brief night time appearance, but onl y once was it seen cavorting o n the surface o f the lake during daylight hours. It wa s then reported to have a body as \big aroun d as a barrel,\ colored a vivi d green and splashed with Irregular\ yellow spots. It ha d a hug e calf shaped head that moved majestically fro m side to sid e as it surveye d the landscape. Enormou s white teeth, set in a vermiUion colored mouth made the whole appearance absolutely appalling, even to the •bravest and most skeptical. As summer waned , the serpent dipped for the las t time beneath •the waters of Silver Lake. Late comers were disappointed, the various speculations agreeing that it had doubtless returned, via an underground river , to the depths of a distant ocean . In vain did nex t season's visitor s seek fo r a glimpse of the stranger He wa s neve r seen there again. The inci ­ dent might hav e remained on e of the Genesee Country' s major mys­ teries had not a fire in the attic of a Perry hotel revealed the truth. Firefighters there found a conglomeration of canvas and wire coil, the corpus delicti itself It was subsequently revealed that ARCADE HERALD • Member National Editorial Ass'n ONE OF THE FIVE TRI-COUNTY WEEKLY PUBLICATIONS Member New York Press Ass'n Volume LXVIII One Section-Twelve Pages Thursday, April 30, 1959 10c Copy; 15c By Mail $4 per Year Number 15 Delevan to Have New Fire Alarm System In Operation This Week The Public Emergency Report ­ in g Fir e Alar m system wil l be in operatio n in the Village o f Dele- van this week. This syste m is one of the most modern an d effi­ cient , perfected to insure quick and accurate response to fire and emergency calls, and has bee n installed by the Westinghous e Electri c Company, in cooperation with the Ne w York Telephon e Company. It involves fiv e tele­ phones located in various business establishments and private home s in th e Village, to insure bot h da y and night service, to residents o f th e Deleva n Fire District, an d is associated with the regular fire phone in the Fire Hall. The number remains the same, as in th e ol d system—9522. This is the wa y it operates: any ­ one desiring the fire apparatus or First Aid Squad, wil l dial the numbe r 9522, and som e on e of the phones will be answered. Give the person answering your call you r nam e and location of the fire or emergency . Th e per ­ son who answers will then trans­ mi t the message t o the first fireman who reaches the fire phon e in the Fire Hall thus eliminating con ­ fusion as has occurred In the past in determining fire location and equipment needed. Residents ca n b e assured much quicke r re­ sponse fro m the fireme n and greater fire protection. Chaffee - Sardinia, Bliss, Elli- cottville, and Westo n Mills all operate under this syste m and find that it has worked out ver y satisfactorily.
