Catching up the new straw hats. To show which way it blows. Fruit trees are in blossom. ^ Now put on your straw bat. ■ Tbe ice business grows more brisk. Flies and mosquitoes are^already “ on tbe job. ” Farmers and gardeners are busy people these days. Studies were resumed at ; tbe Union school on Monday. Tbe whack of tbe carpet beater is still beard in tbe land. The street sprinkler was much appreci ­ ated by dusty villagers last week. Tbe appetizing asparagus is now at its best and tickles tbe palate of the epicure. If there is no killing frost this month tbe fruit crop ought to be a large one this year. There is trouble ahead for newspaper men. A counterfeit fifty-cent piece is in circulation. Tbe Literary Society will meet next Monday evening at tbe residence of Dr. J . T. Wheeler. Independence Day , is not far ahead. Does anybody make a motion that Chat ­ ham “ celebrate, ” this year? Chatham children who blow squeakers should'note that an eight years ’ old girl was recently chocked to death by one of' those toys lodging in her throat. The members of Ocean One will hold their annual reception this year in Cady ’ s Hall instead of at their own parlors. The affair occurs next Monday evening. At an adjourned meeting of the Chat-' ham excise board, last week, druggists ’ licenses were granted to Messrs. Wash- burn and Seymour and H. J. Barringer, Jr - ^0^- ^ 50 piHgler ’ s electric wires have already \ ’ burned several trees in the village streets. Either ’ the insulation of the-wires must be poor, or the wires have been carelessly strung at the points referred to. David H. Mallory, who has been em ­ ployed in Pennsylvania during the past few months, returned home last week, and will take his old position as book­ keeper at the furnace when operations are resumed there. Free-trade Wilson will have to attend to business as postmaster-general better than he is doing, or we shall “ call him down ” hard before long. .Our copy of the Al ­ bany Press of March 20 did not reach our table until May 8. An exchange says that a western editor has invited an infernal machine which he sends in an envelope to those who “ re ­ fuse ” the paper without paying for.it. The machine explodes and kills the whole family, and the fragments that fall in the yard kill the dog. A bill has passed the legislature which is of interest to volunteer firemen. It pro­ vides that if a volunteer firemen loses his life at a fire, or dies within a year from in ­ juries received, his heirs shall receive §500 from the city, incorporated village, or if neither, from the town in which the fire occurred, the same to be raised by a tax in a manner similar to other expenses. The newspaper car on the Hudson River railroad broke down at Cold Spring, near Poughkeepsie last Sunday, con­ sequently the New York .papers did not reach this village until 4 p. m. When Newsdealer Smith ’ s bundles were thrown from an eastbound flyer one of them rolled into a pool of muddy water and a iarge number ©f papers were spoiled. The result was that some of our villagers had to get along without their customary reading matter. It is expected that new time cards will go into effect on the Boston & Albany and Harlem railroads next Sunday. It is re ­ ported among the changes to be made for the summer months a new local train will be placed on the B. & A. road to run between Pittsfield and Albany, and that it will practically be a restoration of the “ Wilbur ” train that was so popular dur­ ing previous years. It is also said that the Sunday afternoon through trains up and down the Harlem road will have their runs extended to PittsfieldMKiil a ch in their time schedule. The two S ’ s and the two M ’ s engaged thenttention ” iof bur villagers yesterday. Rev. Dr. Miller ’ s'discourse'next Sun ­ dayevening will be of especial interest.to “ Railroad Men. ” IF' Recorder.George H. Shufelt qualified and entered upon the duties of his office^ Monday morning. Clarence Lowell, .who is working in a printing office at Slingerlands, N. Y., spent Sunday with his parents. Mrs. Henry Smith started on Monday for Lowell, Vermont, on a visit to her daughter. She expects to be absent two or three months. Superintendent W. S. Hallenbeck and the teachers of the Hudson schools at ­ tended the Institute last Wednesday. Several teachers from Philmont were also present. Panels of grand and trial j urors to serve at the June term of the Columbia County Court and Court of Sessions will be drawn at County Clerk Rockefeller ’ s office on Thursday of next week. The stallion Blue Blood, formerly owned by the late Charles Rosboro of this village, died on Monday at Niverville. Henry Van Hoesen recently purchased the stallion at an auction sale. J. W. Blunt and W. H. Flint are .repre ­ senting Gen. Logan Post, G. A. R. of this village at the twenty-ninth annual encampment of the Department of New York, now in session at Saratoga Springs. Lawrence J. Doyle of Albany, is assist ­ ing in the canvass for McCann ’ s “ Chat ­ ham Directory for 1895. ” According to the canvass, there are a vast number of changes and a considerable number of new names. A broken axle caused three freight cars to be derailed in the yard of the B. & A. road at East Albany, Sunday evening, and delayed traffic for some time while the tracks were being cleared. No one was hurt by the accident. There was no lecture before the teach ­ ers ’ institute last Thursday evening. The department at, Albany failed to furnish a speaker. Many of the teachers, con ­ sequently attended the dramatic . enter ­ tainment at Cady ’ s Hall. Rev. G. W. Fortney of Wurtemburg, N. Y., who formerly was principal of the Chatham public school and pastor of the Lutheran church, has accepted a call to Turbotville, Pennsylvania, and will return to his native State to reside. Mr. J. D. Kinsman was notified by tele ­ graph, Sunday night, that hjs mother was dead at her home at Font Hill, Canada. Mr. and Mrs. Kinsman started for that place on Monday in order to attend the funeral, which occurs to-day. George Boright of White Mills, a freight brakeman employed on the Boston & Albany railroad, while assisting to make up his train in the East Albany yard, Friday evening, had his right arm badly crushed between the bumpers of two cars. Chatham was a lively place yesterday with two circuses in town. Scribner & Smiths shows did a big business on the County Fair grounds. There was also a big attendance at the matinee in Village Hall under the auspices of Maxon & Marks. There will be a meeting of represen­ tatives of the different churches of Chat ­ ham in the Lutheran church on Friday afternoon at 8 o ’ clock, to devise some plan to help entertain the Free Air chil ­ dren to be sent from the city during the months of July and August. After September 1st masculine Chat- hamites will have to abandon their Sun ­ day morning trip to the barber ’ s shop. The bill prohibiting barbers from exer ­ cising their calling on Sunday has become a law without the governor ’ s signature, and the overworked tonsorial artist can now have one day in the week to rest — or to go a-fishing — just as some other people do. Saturday was a sweltering day, the thermometer registering as high as 94° during the afternoon. At midnight it stood at 78°, but shortly afterward the mercury began to slide down the tube and in a few hours dropped over 40 de grees. This phenomenal change in tem ­ perature was accompanied by a mean, disagreeable, cold rain and a bleak wind that appeared to come from all quarters of the compass simultaneously. Sunday the refrigerator weather continued, caus ing people to don their discarded winter clothing and to indulge in mean remarks concerning the clerk of the weather for monkeying with icebergs and cold waves at this season of the year. The much-talked-of “ Irish Politician ” was played at the Opera House, on Thurs ­ day and Friday evenings, by our local dramatic company under the direction of Harry LaTell. On Thursday evening the house was packed, and standing room was at a premium, .despite the fact that the thermometer must have been up al­ most out of sight. In addition to the singing and dancing by the little folks, and the clog dancing by Messrs. Kittell and Van Buren, there were, twenty-one speaking characters in the cast, and all took their parts admirably ’ Miss Dora Callender ’ s interpretation of the character of Polly was very pleasing and especially well received. Jack Ralston, the western scout and guide, was really the leading character, and was cleverly impersonated by John C. Dardess. Mr. LaTell is en ­ titled to great credit ior the success the play achiev^^atfi Ipr which he worked faithfullvilM^Mjbi Jtis _^dwfiorable fany- bn Mrs. E. A. Ostrander and children of New York city, are visiting in towiy for a few, days. Miss Della Briggs of Bennington, Vt., spent a portion of last week with her grandmother, Mrs. Kate Ford. Ike Sonn is the proud possessor of a new Cleveland bicycle, purchased through Agent C. M. Harmon. Mrs. Gertrude Boright and mother are spending a few weeks among friends at Hillsdale. Express Messenger Oscar Wilcox and Engineer John Hulbert are convalescing from their recent illness. , Chas. W. Phelps and family are visit- mng among friends at Franklin, in the western part of the state. The McGibney Family will give a vocal and instrumental concert in Cady ’ s Opera House next Saturday evening. Lumber for the new barrel factory of Haviland & Son has arrived. Work on the building will be commenced at once. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Marshall of New York, have been visiting at the home of his parents in this village the past week. R. W. Seymour and R. E. Shuphelt are representing the local Epworth League at the district convention in Poughkeepsie, to-day. The Miller residence at the corner of Lower Main and School streets is being enlarged by the addition of a wing on the east side. Scribner & Smith ’ s circus made a very creditable street parade yesterday, and gave two first-class performances after­ noon and evening. Mrs. John Sharp fell down a steep embankment at her home on High street, Monday. One of her arms was broken and she sustained other injuries. The mercury ranged between 80° and 90° during several days of the past week, and the nights were warm too, much warmer than usual for the early portion of May. Mrs.\ J. W. Blunt and Mrs. Geo. Gregory are in attendance at the W. R. C. convention being held at Saratoga this week, as delegates of the Relief Corps of this village. The new uniforms for the members of Ocean One have arrived. It is expected that the company will make a street parade at an early date in order to give the villagers an opportunity to inspect and admire the new “ togs. ” It is reported that Robert Boylan, formerly of this village, recently died after a very brief illness, in Ireland. The rumor is based on a letter said to have been received from the old country by some of his friends in Hillsdale. All candidates voted for at the charter election yesterday must within the next ten days file a sworn statement with the Village Clerk of all monies expended by them in connection with the election. The omission to make and file such a state ­ ment is a misdemeanor punishable by both fine and imprisonment. Assistant Postmaster-General Jones has issued an order specially cautioning post ­ masters that they must promptly return undelivered matter bearing the request of the sender in accordance therewith. Many complaints have been received at the post- office department of neglect on the part of postmasters in regard to this matter. An itinerant umbrella mender named Duffy took aboard too big a cargo of Bowery jag water, Friday night, and was hauled into the cooler because he was drunk and disorderly. On Saturday, Justice Page sent Duffy to the Hotel De Conner at Hudson, for ten days. Duffy ’ s partner in the j ag business was not so fortunate. He was arraigned Saturday morning before Justice Geo. H. Shufelt; said his name was Burns, and got 60 days in the Albany penitentiary. The opening ball game of the season, Saturday, between Chatham and Valatie, was won handily by the home team by score of 15 to 2. Beebe and Chase were the battery for Chatham, and Roach and Mesick for the visitors. Despite the one­ sided score, the game was interesting and abounding in good plays by both teams. Valatie looked very neat in their new uniforms, which are very similar to those of the Chatham team. The feature of the game was the batting of Chase for the home team. Umpire Mann ’ s decisions gave general satisfaction. CHARTER ELECTION, YESTERDAY,. Abxn. Marks Chosen as Trustee for a Second Term. The annual charter election was held yesterday and it was a quite exciting affair, no less than 418 voters depositing their ballots m the box during the four hours the polls were open at Village Hall. The contest was confined to the head of the ticket and Dr. F. G. Maxon, the regular citizens ’ caucus nominee for trus ­ tee, was defeated by Abm. Marks, the Independent candidate, by a majority of 189. The balance of the citizens ’ ticket was elected without opposition. The officers chosen are as follows: Trustee — Abm. Marks. Clerk — Wm. B. Daley. Treasurer — Jos. Summer. Collector — Thos. P. Gorman. Assessor — Wm. V. Reynolds. Poundmaster — Henry De Moran ville. A NEW CORONER APPOINTED. Governor Morton, last week, appointed Dr. Milford L. Bates,, of Canaan Four Corners, a coroner for this county, to fill the vacancy caused by the removal of-Dr, Geo. P. Bell, who has removed to Massa ­ chusetts. THE MAY ANNIVERSARIES. The Annual Sunday School %nd Bible Society Conventions to be Held in This Village Next Week — The Program.

They Raised a .Ruction at a Stockport Brickyard and Will Spend the Sum ­ mer in the Penitentiary. Sheriff Conner sent several deputy- sheriffs and special officers' to Walsh Bros, brickyard near Coxsackie Station, one day last week, to quell a riot in which a lot of drunken Italian brickmakers were indulging. The officers arrested two of the ringleaders and took them to the county jail, securely shackled. They were vicious looking vagabonds and when searched it was found that they were armed with loaded pistols. On Wednesday, the two Italians were taken to Stockport and arraigned before Justice Butler who sentenced each man to six months ’ in the Albany penitentiary. ANOTHER HUDSON RIVER MYSTERY. Was James McGuire Murdered by Italian Rioters at Walsh ’ s Brickyards .in Stockport? On Monday evening of last week the body of James McGuire, of Newburgh, a deck hand on a brick barge that had been loading at Walsh Bros, brickyard near Coxsackie Station, was found floating in the Hudson Eiver at that place. The barge started for New York on the previous Saturday and it is possible that McGuire fell overboard and was drowned. A belief is gaining ground, however, that the lawless and intoxicated Italian laborers who were on a strike got into an altercation with McGuire and threw him into the river, causing his .death. It is asserted that some of the men had been heard to threaten to harm him if they got an opportunity. Coroner Cochran is investigating the matter. A TERRIBLE DEATH- A Former Housekeeper of Dr. Talmage Burned at the Bedside of Her Sick Son in North Adams. Mrs. Edward Driscoll, who for many years was housekeeper for Rev. Dr. Tal- madge, in Brooklyn, was burned to death at her home in North Adams, Mass., last Wednesday, while sitting'^ the bedside of her sick son. - A lighted kerosene lamp exploded and set fire to her clothing, and her six children were severely burned while attempting to save her life. The house was saved from destruction only with great difficulty, and §400 in money, which the unfortunate woman had in the room in which the fire origi ­ nated, was consumed. DOSED WITH “ KNOCK-OUT DROPS. ” The Pittsfield Journal says that Brad, ford Crawford, of Lenoxdale,. who was missing from home for about ten days and was finally discovered in a freight car at this village, claims that after taking a drink in this place bn April 25 with a chance acquaintance, he went with his new found friend to Albany, and thence to Hudson the same day. He says he re ­ members nothing of what happened from that tiipe until the day before he was found by an officer in this village. When he did come to, he was in a room at Hud ­ son. He hadn ’ t a cent left of the $123 that he possessed when he went to Al ­ bany, and he thinks that he must have fallen among a gang of Hudson thieves who dosed him with “ knock-out drops ” and then robbed him. THE NEXT . CHATHAM FAIR Will Probably be Held During the Second Week of September. The date for holding the forthcoming annual fair of. the Columbia County Agricultural Society have not yet been definitely settled. President Reynolds, however, informed our reporter yesterday that it was probable that the big Chat ­ ham fair will be held this year a' week later than usual. The change in date is contemplated in order to enable the so ­ ciety to connect with a trotting circuit that will ensure specially attractive track Features during the fair.; Highest of all in Leavening Power. — Latest U. S. Gov ’ t Report Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE WANTED, A DIVORCE. Mrs. Annie E. Pulver, of Ghent, has commenced an action for a divorce from her husband, David Pulver. An applica ­ tion was made before Judge Barnard, by the plaintiffs ’ counsel, for alimony, last Saturday. The judge allowed $80 coun ­ sel fees, but declined to grant alimony pending the trial of the action. Prof. Sargent, the optician, will make his last visit to Chatham , Monday and Tuesday, May 27th and 28th. Will not visit here again until next August. Don ’ t fail to consult him on these dates. 33-34 The Butterworth Oat Thresher, with patent expanded feeding throat, which is ten inches wider than the length of the cylinder, is a wonderful invention which enables the feeder to put one-third more straw through the cylinder, especi ­ ally loose oats, than it is possible to do with the old-style narrow feeding throats, which are only the same width as the cyl ­ inders. We own and control the patent on the “ expanded feeding throat, ” and no other thresher made can use it. Write for catalogue. Address Butterworth Threshing Co., Trenton, N. J. We have not had anything to say about our business to you in some time and therefore feel you will give attention to the little we have to say now. We have met with good success of late and have placed several handsome Sterling pianos, also a few Krell pianos in different homes in Chatham, Ghent, Kinderhook, Mellen- ville and New York. We are not crying hard times and bargains. The public have had enough of that. We have simply reduced our prices to the very lowest point of ratio with our expenses. We fully realize that the day of exorbitant profits in the music trade has passed and 'that the percentage of profits must be in accordance withall other lines of business. In pursuance with this conclusion we have likewise red'uced our expenses, as you all know the buyer must pay the expenses incurred by the old city houses in our line, (to say nothing of the added interest on the old stock accumulated by years of trading and changing styles). We ask is it not decidedly to your advantage from a financial standpoint to patronize people of our ability in the business of an ex ­ perience in trade as regards wholesale purchase, and who are simply giving you a minimum of expense and a minimum of profit. If you believe in reciprocity, spend you money where people of this vicinity will be benefitted by it, instead of patronizing strangers who have no interest in you further than the dollar they can get out of you. We have a choice selected line of Sterling pianos and organs, Wil ­ cox & White organs, Krell pianos, James & Holstrom pianos and Sommer pianos; also, a few prizes in goods that have been used a little. It is for your interest to see us before going elsewhere, and an inter ­ view costs you nothing. M. V. Sprague Co., Park Row. J. T. Rider, Manager, Chatham, N. Y. Died.
