Now and then a word or some notice oon- oeruing the temperance movemeuX being heard we infer tbe wave is ttiil in motion, and perhaps a slight sketch of the various temperance organizations as taken from tbe history of Ticonderoga will be quite en rapport. A temperance wave had been slowly rising from the beginning of the present century and received an immense^ impetus in 1826 from the American Temperance so- ciety at Boston and in 1828 it reached Ticon- deroga. The first discussion of the kind in town was at the ordination of Re?. A. C. Tattle as pastor over the churcli on Mount Hope, That evening the ministers convened in a body at a school house near by and talked over the matter aud resolved to form temperance society under the old pledge of abilineuce from ardent spirits. Auaoug the number were two venerable pastors who had been in the habit of taking for temporary sfreshment after a hard day's wo»k for the Lord a glass of suthin 1 but on that night renounced for the sake of example the prac- tice. Some of the church members were backward in signing the pledge-as they thought the act eoustituted the signing away of their rights and privileges. But by earnest work of the leaders success attended them. The fir*t bribe offered aud earned was by Hon. Almiron Smith a resident of town and then a member of Legislature and devoted worker in the cause ; who offered a cow to a certain blacksmith of the village who was daily intoxicated if he would keep sober for 366 days. The man earned the cow and became a most zealous temperance worker. Temperance work now became a war carried into politics, business, church and society, then in time waned. During the activity of the lumber trade from 1628 to 1840 the ruin traffic was co-equal, hardly a family bat what suffered. Somewhat aroused in 1846 no license was uuauimeusly voted and good results found. Since 1849 several organizations Lave been conceived, born and their lives depending on the mem- bership and laws of their construction flour- ished for a greater or le«s period, then died a natural death. In 1849 the Sons of Tern perance was organized aud for four years was a staple society. Mr. I. N. Parker was the leader aud the society was known as the Mt. Defkuce division. There were 22 TAILORING!

Mr. Daniels was formerly proprietor of the Grand View house at Lake Placid. —The condttlca of the streets in conse- quence of the rain and snow it terrible The slush was over ankle deep, Wednes- day* and It was impossible for pedestrians to locomote comfortably witbont using rubber boots or stilts. — Kew Advertisements : We call special attention to the following new adv< rtise ments: Quackenbush & Co., Julius Saul F.

Without boasting one might say that the Star baae ball club of Ticonderoga was one of the most successful of Northern New York last season, having only sus tained one defeat in a series of eleven games witb other similar organizations It purposes to make the season of '84 atill taoce .interesting here to lovers of the national game by enclosing a ground iq the proper way for this purpose. To do this will require considerable outlay and the club have decided to raise fund by giving a superb entertainment at the close of the lenten season. This will consist of musical or dramatic features during the fore part of the evening followed by a grand hop and supper. It promises to be a brilliant affair and we have no doubt of its success, Among the Churches. Episcopal services will be held In Drake's •lock and 10:8C a. TO. and 7 o'clock in the evening.

We have had occasion to notice more than oue family made happy by the Horse Xotes. A. J. Hough of Orwell, Vt., upon going to the barn Sunday, March 9th, found his Lambert mare, Kit. Balcom, with one of her hiud legs broken twice between the hock and stifle-joint. It was decided necessary to kill her at once. She was running loose iu a box stall; about a half hour before tbe accident was discovered, the hired man had fed her aud everything was all right then. Mhe was a very promising youug mare, hav- ing beeu Bhown to parties in 2 52, tbe fourth time she was on the track wbicb was late in tbe fall. Mr. H. was confident be could show her better than 2 35 auy day. She was pronounced by parties from Conuecticut ae tbe finest driving horse they bad ever rode behind, being very high-spirited, yet afraid;of nothing, and very easily managed. This is quite a Joes to Mr. H M who was negotiating with said parties for the tale of ber and expected them here for her in a 6bovt time.

Joseph Cook) distiuguisbed himself in tbe way be defended tbe society from some charges brought against it, and remarks to ibe drunkards. Iu 1855 a reverse was keenly felt and rum beld sway, and in 1857,tbe ball where the meetings were held being \burnt and tbe society being reduced by death and emigration, became discouraged and expired* Later in 1857, F. J. Cook held a meeting at the Baptist church, Oct. 29, aud proposed the People's Temperance Alliance, carried, and soon 500 names were ou tbe roll. Vari • ous committees were appointed and tbe work planned. A sinking fund was soon raised and placed at tbe disposal of tbe com. initfee who would enforce tbe law and not make a farce aud boy's play of it. Three farmers gave $400 of the fund. The fol- lowing winter (1857-8) F. J. Cook gave a series of six lectures on various temperance subjects at the Baptist church and was at- tended with marked good. Hon. C. H. DeLano also lectured on temperance as his co> worker. Soon for want of sufficient stick-to-it-iveness tbe society died and not even ashes were left. Nothing of note was done till the organization of tbe Good Tern* plars lodge some 18 years ago, unless we except several spasmodic altempts to from a Band of Hope and Cold Water Brigade among the children. Tbe G. T.'s were at- tended with much that was good. Many hopeless cases was reformed and became good citizens.
