W ednesday morning of last week a boatman discovered a human foot, badly decomposed and encased in a leather shoo, ffoating in the canal a short dis­ tance west of Mudlock. He informed the lock tender Edward Whitlock who notified Constable Newby, who in com­ pany with Coroner Peterson of Water­ loo, secured the foot and brought it to Undertaker Sanderson’s rooms giving him instructions to bury it. It will be remembered th.at in December last the body of Daniel Lyon was taken from the canal at Seneca Falls minus the loft foot and a portion of the leg.

A period, or rather tho lack of one caused quite a sensation in this village yesterday afternoon, giving rise to the story that George Lester, who is an torney in New York city and a son of Dr. and Mrs. Elias LestdT of this place, had been shot and killed.

Shortly after noon Dr. Fred Lester received fro clerk in the law office, .a dispatch word­ ed as follows: “Mr. Mettler accidently shot and killed George just heard the news.’’ There were no punctuation marks and naturally the conclusion was reached that George had been tho vic­ tim of an unfortunate accident. Anxi­ ous for further particulars Dr. Lester wired at once to obtain them and i received word that it was George’s part­ ner, Mr. Mettler who had been killed on a hunting expedition up the Hudson. This intelligence though sad was a great relief to Mr. Lester’s family and many friends here. Personals. —Miss Maud I.

Gould, of this place, Monday morn­ ing, was very sad and a great shock not only to her immediate family but to all those who have known her dur­ ing the long period of her residence here.

Until Sunday she was apparently in good health but during the day she began to feel ill and grew rapidly worse until midnight. Dr. F. Lester was hastily summoned and did his ut­ most for her relief, but his skill was in vein, the patient sinking rapidly until death ended her suffering with the dawn and she entered into that new life where rest is found. The deceased was born at Northampton, Mass., forty nine years ago. She was a woman of noble character, tender and considerate of others, devoted to her family and home and her death will bring sorrow to a wide circle of loving friends who found pleasure and enjoyment in her companionship. She is survived by her husband, two sons, Charles, of the Gould Drug Co., and Warren, who is employed in the Exchange National bank and one daughter, Ethel. Her other surviving relatives are two brothers, Frank and Warren Pearsall of Watkins, and one sister, Mrs. Adrian Onderdonk of Brooklyn.
