This represents 1,200,000 glasses of beer, at the regular retail price of 6 cents each. —Reveille. We have heard of men seeing double from the effect of the above mentioned beverage, but the statement quoted indicates a condition far worse. 1,200,000 glasses of beer would represent a much larger outlay than $6,000. 'The full text of the new bicycle side- path law may be found on the fourth page of to- days issue. Every wheel man and wheelwoman should read it. We have heard many cyclers disputing as to its provisions who gave evidence of knowing very little about the subject they presumed to discuss. A careful study of the law might prevent such persons from making themselves pub licly ridiculous. Speaking ot the sample road put down in that city last season the Geneva Advertiser says: The Castle street ma cadam wears a great deal better than people had any idea it would, being no drainage and no curb to it. Had there been both, with no possibility of drag ging any mud on it from tlie side, it would be as clean and smooth as any street in town, but we admit would not wear as long. We have rather out grown our antipathy to macadam. Tlic tonth anniversary of llio Ep- worth league of the Methodist church was celebrated last Sunday evening. Benjamin Andrews read a very inter esting pajier giving a historical sketch of the league from its conception. Frank B. Odell followed with a paper on the league of our church. Rev. Mr. Copeland closed the meeting with an address in which he paid a high tribute to the personal worth of the late Ros well P. Flower. A petition is being circulated in town to be presented to the state fish com mission asking that the local fisher men be allowed to take the bullheads, carp, dog fish and eels out of Cayuga lake with nets under the supervision of game protectors. Already about five hundred names have been signed to the paper. The fish above mentioned des troy the spawn of the game fish and this no doubt accounts in a measure for the shortage of game fish in the lake. All persons who ride bicycles should secure their sidepath numbers before the first of June, because after that date a fine of $25 will be imposed on every person riding on sidepaths with out a number. The new law has made a large demand for the numbers and as they are very slow in comeing should the present stock in Hull’s cigar store and at the repair shops run out many riders may have to lay away their wheels until a new lot of numbers can bo secured. The team belonging to Anthony Me Guan while coining out of the lane from Kellogg’s blacksmith shop yesterday became frightened and ran down State street toward the Hoag house at a terrific pace. Owen Burns’ baggage wagon stood opposite the eastern en trance of the hotel and the runaway team came crashing into it throwing the horses down and piling the wagon on top of them. Little damage was done except to Burns wagon whicli had the thills broken. The Iiome of Henry Smith situated on the swamp road about two miles north of Waterloo was destroyed by lire Saturday afteruoou. Mr. and Mrs. Smith were visiting their son, who lived but a short distance away, when they discovered that their own home was in flames, but little could be done to save the building or furniture. The barns just across the road were pre vented from burning by the aid of neighbors. Mr. Smith’s loss is said to be partly covered by insurance. How the fire originated is not known. The new lessee and manager of the restaurant and other privileges at Cayuga Lake Bark, Mr. Earl L. Brown of Syracuse, is a gentleman who has had considerable experience catering to the public and he is now busily en gaged getting everything in readiness for the opening of the season Deco ration day.

The members of Silsby Hose Com' pany have chartered the steamer “ Charles A. Domong” of Syracuse, and wil! have a;i excursion to Ithaca Decora tion day on the occasion of the Cornell- Pennsylvania and other rowing races to take place on that day. The steamer will leave the Park a t 8 o’clock and will accompany the boats over the course returning to this end of the lake as soon-as possible after the conclusion of the races. The price of tickets for the round trip on the lake is one dollar. No more than 150 tickets will be sold so that there will bo plenty of room for all oil the boat. The Riverside Gun Club, an organi zation recently formed here, held a trap shoot jnst east of Rumsey’s works last Saturday afternoon at four o’clock. The weather proved somewhat unfavor able but in spite of this 125 clay birds were disposed of and some good shoot ing was done. The next meet will be Saturday of this week at the same hour, at which time ollicers will be elected. The following are members of the club: Wm. GoU, S. A. Worm- stead, R. Miller, S. Woods, P. McNany, Jas. McNany, Wm. Harris, A. Z. Hurd, Edward Thorne, C. S. McBride, George Roseiiburg, A. H. Morden. It is almost impossible to take up a paper nowadays without reading of the discovery of some new disease germ or learning that articles in common use are lurking places of the deadly baecillus. It this thing keeps on people will have irear germ protectors over their mouths and nostrils, modelled after the smoke protectors of the fireman, and special antiseptic and! germ proof cloth ing or else give themselves up without reservation to the ravages o f the terrible monsters. The outlook is certainly very gloomy. The man who invented the bacillus ought to be caught and shut up in a cage with a few million of them for a period of silent meditation and repentance. ______ At the adjourned meeting of the board of trustees lastWednesday even ing the matter of additional lands for cemetery purposes was discussed and upon motion of Mr. Wellbery it was decided to secure an option on the Crane property, which Mr. Hawley had offered to sell to the village for the sum of $2,000 for the piece,> comprising about nine acres just west of and adjoining the present cemetery. The village is to pay §2,000 for the land, the lots to be sold by the village at not less than ten cents per square foot, and to pay Mr. Hawley eighty per cent of the pro ceeds of all sales until the tract is en tirely paid for. The matter of pur chasing crushed stone was referred to the street and bridge committee with power to act. An exchange says that gas consumers are very careless in the matter of meters. The mechanism of Ihese small sheet- iron arrangements is as delicate as the works of a watch and they ought to be inspected at least once a year to as certain whether they are running fast or slow. As a matter of fact, they are not inspected on an average of once in ten years. A meter is planted on its shelf in the cellar and that is very likely to be the last attention that is paid lo it by anyone but the man who comes around four times a year from company’s office to read it. It may be running fast or it may be running slow, but unless it should stop al together or grind out a whole year’s normal consumption in one quarter, no one is likely to think enough about the matter to call for an inspection. Epworth League Convention. The eighth annual convention of the Auburn district Epworth League will bo held in the Wall street Methodist church, Auburn, beginning Tuesday May 23d at 3:30 p. m ., and closing Wednesday at 4 p. M.
