With four other brothers and a sister, all of whom are now dead, they took the Forepaugh circus all over the United States and Europe. Charles Forepaugh, the first man to ever deliberately place his head in a lion's mouth, was among the pioneers of circus history. He was the young- est of the Forepaugh brothers, and was born August 27, 1837. The Forepaughs had always been interested in animals and for years previous to their circus career, Adam and Charles were engaged in horse trading in Philadelphia, where the family lived. Their interest in the circus began through their horse busi- ness, and they embarked in the circus business in 1863. Later«they pur- chased several wild animals and Charles became a -lion trainer. He had had no experience with lions but assumed this task merely because \somebody had to do it.\ According to his story, he stepped into the cage with the three lions and began to sweep the cage with his broom, al- ways moving toward them. He did this for ten days until the animals be- came used to him. Then • gradually he had them jumping over-a o gate, through a hoop, through a hoop cov- ered with paper and finally through a the burning hoop. i.

LIGHTNING BOLT STUNS MAN TALKING ON PHONE C. D. Walker Gets. Shock, and. Guy Wire Back of Floyd C. UUman Home In Natural Bridge is Struck at Same Time. Lightning played queer pranks in the vicinity of Natural Bridge during a severe electric storm. Although the the storm lasted for only a short time it resulted In considerable damage. A bolt struck a guy wire in the back yard of the home of Floyd C. Ullman. Main street, which was fastened to a popuar tree and held an aerial on the The lightning ar- current down- the time in doing ithis .trick, he did not hold the beast's jaws properly and that year Charles Forepaugh sucked his Christmas dinner through a glass tube. Adam was the daring member of the family who devised trick animal- acts. It was he who made such' cap- ital of the elephants, who killed, in- numerable horses before he got the famous horse, Blondin, to do the tight rope act and \who killed more beasts in his attempt to get a horse to work the trapeze. Adam also capitalized the death of the\ famous Jesse James. The Fore- paugh circus was in St. Joseph, Mo., when the famous bandit was killed there. Crowds flocked to St. Joseph to view the body. Adam Forepaugh stationed his ballyhoo men near the house of death and led the throngs away to the circus grounds. Charles Forepaugh spent 25 years with the circus and after leaving the ring seems never to have been inter- ested In returning to see what was going on under the big' tops of a later generation. He represented the hey- ihe roof of the house and \smashed Lday of the circus, the day wb.en the roof of his home, restor carried the ground wire, but It tore shingles from clapboards along the side. Although it did not reach the interior of the building a large window shade was thrown from the sill to the floor of the house by the force of the impact. The air was filled with the fumes of burning insulation and people who were near by thought that the house was on fire.and turned in an alarm. No blaze resulted. C. D. Walker, who was talking on e.phone in his garage nearly, re- ceived a severe shock and was thrown across the large room. Several phones were put out of order as a re- sult of the current. Mr. Walker was stunned, but was not seriously injur- ed. glitter and pomp of the show was the acme of what could be achieved in entertainment. Although now the cir- cuses may be bigger and perhaps a little better, the competition of other forms of amusement has stripped it of some of the glamor of those days when the ba g£ a & e **?* ca ™ e cree P- i«ff mto town through the early morn- m & mist - TRAFFIC JN 1929 FROM CANADA SHOWS GAINS Increase of 22,561 Over Previous Year Noted by Authorities at Ogdensburg. Ogdensburg, July 24.— Complete figures on travel across the interna- tional bqundary at this point for the immigration department's fiscal year ending July 1, were announced today and show that in the 12 months a total of 253,259 persons entered from Canada, as compared with 230,698 in the previous fiscal year, the increase being 22.561.

COUNTY JAIL OVERTAXED Transfers from Lockups Crowd County Bastile at Ma lone. The Franklin county jail at Malone is overcrowded during federal court, but jail officials are doing their utmost to care for the prisoners and at the same time accommodate the United States marshal's office in an attempt to clear other jails during the present term. Yesterday there were 65 men con- fined in cells designed for 49 and. it was necessary to double up in many instances. One day there were 21 ad- missions, mostly transfers from other northern jails, for arraignment. Yes- terday six men were admitted from Clinton county jail. The 65 inmates are not a record, for a few years ago before the new jail was built the old lockup with smaller accommodations housed about 85 prisoners for nearly a month. That year the jail congestion was so great prisoners were taken out into the broiling August sun to cool off 1>y walking about in the jail yard. HOTEL WILL BE RAZED Oswegatcbie House, Once City's __Ftnest, To Make Way for ci** Station. Ogdensburg, July 24. The 'Oswegnt- chie house, one of the oldest hotels in the north country, situated at Main and Lake streets, is to be razed, to give way tu a gasoline filling-station. Permission to erect gasoline pumps on the site of the Oswegatchle house was granted to Felix Boyer, owner of the establishment, at the meeting of the common council. The entire corner, consisting of several buildings, will be torn down along with fRe~ ho- tel, to make room for the new station. - The hotel was built by the late John. Steed, and was the finest in the city at the time.. In connection with it were livery stables and sheds on the site where the Frank Sharp garage now Btands, across the road. There were no buildings where the Ai Du- pont and Boyer stores adjoining the hotel at the present time, stand, and this section of the block was fenced off by a large bill board. Mr. Steed operated the hotel for many years and it was eventually pur- chased by the late Jesse Jillson, father of James JllLson, the present president of the rSt Lawrence County Savings bank. Mr. Jillson operated the hotel for 12 years after taking possession of It in 1875. In 1887 it passed into the hands of Edward Capron, who operated it until his disposal of it to Elmer McDougal. Felix Boyer pur- chased the hotel from Mr. McDougal who has sublet it since his owner- ship. News that the hotel was to be torn down was received with general sur- prise here. FARMERS ARE URGED TO CO- OPERATE BY FEDERAL BOARD Of 8,000,000 Farmers in the United States Only 2,000,000 Are Organized, Chairman of Belief Committee Re- ports. Chairman Alexander H. Legge has directed efforts of -the federal farm board toward) making the farmer \cooperatively minded.\ \ The education of the farmer on the capabilities of the board, as specifically outlined in the bill creating this or- ganization, must come first,\ he said. \This is evident from the many com- munications we have already at hand. The farmers, we find, are not organiz- ed, and those that are, are not proper- ly so. \The bill states that no, loans shall be made to any cooperative associa- tion unless, in the judgment of the board, the loan is in furtherance of the effective merchandising of agricul- tural commodities, and unless the as- sociation applying for the loan has an organization, management, and busi- ness policies of such character as to insure the reasonable safety of the loan. \There are 8,000,000 farmers in the United States and but 2,000,000 of them are organized In any way. They all must be organized under the provi- sions of the CappeY-Volstead act of 1923, an enabling act for farm organi- zations, and under the laws of their separate state statutes on the subject. Until they do this, the board can do nothing for them.\ 60 DAYS IN PENITENTIARY FOR RUM RING HEAD SUSPECT Uncle Ab says that some religions are like worn-out, broken spring, William H. Parisian Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy During Trial at Malone— Fined Total $13,098. , William H. Parisian, of Potsdam, regarded by government officials' as head of a bootleg ring in that village, was sentenced to serve 60 days in Onondaga penitentiary and to pay a fine of T $500 by Judge Frederick H. Bryant in federal court when he pleaded-guilty to conspiracy. , Francis Rogers, co-conspirator, was sentenced to pay a $1 fine and the case against Leon White was not pressed. The case grew out of \seizure of two beer- laden autos at Gouverneur last July. The court term ended last Thurs- 1 day afternoon. Fines totaling $13,098 were collected for Volsteadl violations and many alien cases were disposed of and prison sentences handed out to Jiootleggers. John Frank Chandley and Anthony Sakolofski were each given 20[days in jail for eluding inspection of immi- gration officers. Henry Ahsline, Plattsburg, was fined $100 for posses- sion; Edward J. Roach, Utlca, $200; James Lamay, Westville, sentenced to six months, operation* of which was suspended; Albert Gero, Hogansburg, $1; Elizabeth and Philip Delo, Syra- cuse, the former a mother of seven, fined each $25 for possession; Howard Durston, 419 South Salina street, Syracuse, possession, second offense, sale, and nuisance, sentenced to 24 days in Onondaga penitentiary.

According to official figures compil- ed by the U. S. customs officials in Clayton. 15,466 automobiles entered this country from Canada at that port during the fiscal year extending from June 30. 1928 to July 1, 1929. This Is a slight decrease from the official tabu- lations recorded last year'. W. H. Howe, collector of the port of Clayton, said that he contributed the decrease chiefly to the establish- ment of new provincial game laws in Ontario which change the opening of the fishing season for bass ln_th£jn- land lakes arid rivers of Ontario to July 1 from June 16. He says that with the opening of the season hund- reds of American fishermen cross the border into Canada. With the changes, this traffic subsided notice- ably. He says that so far in the month of July, official \figures show the traffic of transient had been much heavier than July last summer. ROAD OPENING SET FOR FALL Contractor on Watertown-Syracuse JLlnk on Trunk line Expects to Complete Job. Completion this season of the three- line six-mile stretch of concrete high- way on the Watertown-Syracuse state highway between Rice's turn and the village of Adams Center is predicted by the contractor, F. J. Downing of Buffalo. Work on the 30-foot wide highway is progressing rapidly. All culverts on the highway have been completed. Men are now work- ing on the three small concrete brid- ges. This work, it is said, will be finished within two weeks. Grading is being done quickly and the contrac- tor expects to start the pouring of concrete next week. Because of the width of the road, the pouring will take longer than on other highways. It is believed, concrete can be poured until November 1. By that time Mr. Downing believes the work will be finished, with the possible exception of grading the sides of the road. MODERN CONVENIENCE The American Kitchen, and Electric Refrigeration. • ' Electricity's conceded to be natures greatest contribution toward the elimi- nation of drudgery. \Electric power is reducing the bur- den of human toll,\ Herbert Hoover once said. -And this may be applied to our greatest institution, the Ameri- can Kitchen. Electricity has been ap'plied success- fully to every household task, minimi- zing the labor and giving more leisure hours to the homemaker. The newest convenience in this Great American Kitchen is the elec- tric refrigerator. A realization of necessity for a dependable means of refrigeration has swept the country. Government health authorities and refrigerator manufacturers have im- pressed upon the public the dangers lurking in spoiled foods. The electric refrigerator is the most satisfactory solution to the problem of food pre- servation. A constant temperature of less than 50 degree is maintained auto- matically, and the food kept In an electric refrigerator, will remain fresh and wholesome for days. Although electric refrigeration, ever •='nco its inception, off emu a. suluiiuir to the problem of keeping food whole- some, until recently (it was considered a luxury by many. People thought that only the wealthy could afford electric refrigerators. This attitude has changed. Every family* realizes the value of proper food preservation and its relation to health. Because of this realization, 468,000 electric refri- gerators were sold in 1928j represent- ing an amount of $128,700,000, as a- gainst 365,000 electric refrigerators for 1927, which represented a total of $82,125,000 according to figures com- piled by the Electrioal Merchandis- ing magazine. \Electric refrigeration is designed to play the part of servant in addition to that of health keeper,\ stated Howard Holt, of the Northern New York Utilities, Ine., distributors of General Electric Refrigerators.\ Only 6 per cent v of the.country's 27,300,000 homes employ servants. The ma- jority of housewives do their kitchen tasks unassisted. With electric re- frigeration the daily seven miles trac- ed on the kitchen floor is reduced to a minimum. The. electric refrigerator, range and kitchen cabinet are con- veniently arranged for combined beauty and efficiencyi ,., • ' \Meals can be planned in advance and the ingredients stored safely In the electric refrigerator. Vegetables and fruits can be bought at econocical prices, and none is wasted if kept at the proper cold temperature.\ Cheese Factory—Burned. The cheese factory owned by Walter Saunder, of Remington Corners, was completely destroyed by fire Monday evening. . The fire broke out just be- fore 9 p. tn. The* alarm was sounded In Harrlsville and many hastened to the scene, but were unable to sub- due the fire because of lack of water. The cause of the blaze was unknown. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH T. B. TEST IN LEWIS COUNTY Byron W. Trainor, West Leyden, Has Olvea the Test Thorough and Practical Trial and is Well Pleased With Results. MF. Editor: In 1926 my dairy consi- sted of 110 head of untested cattle. Of this number. 70 were milking, the bal- ance being young stock. . The best day's milk from thesfe cows was 24535 pounds. In September and \October a few of these cowf began to lose flesh and gave very little milk al- though fed the same as the rest of the herd. A Bhort time later these cows died and upon opening them, I found them badly affected With T3. In the spring of 1927 I raised twenty heifer calves, but even witfrthis addition my herd was growing smaller owing to losses. .;, From Jaun&ry 1st, 1927, to January 1st, 1928, I lost thirty head of cattle. In the spring of 192B I raised eleven calves, but was still \\losing cows with T.B. I decided that I would have to stop this disease or quit dairying. Therefore, in July, 1928, I canvassed the entire town of l*wl» In Lewis county, with a petition With the result that 95% of the dairymen of the town signed the petition to have their herds tested for T.B. Every Cow In Town Tested During the first part of September the testing was started ^and before these herds w#re all tested the bal- ance of the dairymen. In the town signed for the test,? With the result that every cow in Mf* town of Lewis has been tested. , Within one week from the time the reactors were shipped the farmers re- ceived a check for the amount for which the cows sold in Buffalo, N. Y. The balance was paid by the state within thirty days. v At the time the test was made, I had eighty-seven head and every one was a bad reactor. As soon as my barns had been disinfected I started buying a new herd. I purchased thiTty-nine cows~and one bull, part of these being-springera and part being booked to freshen through the winter and spring. After I had my new herd home I had them blood-tested for abortion. Two grade cows .reacted ttv this test and were *old at once. One cow died at time of freshing, thu^ leaving Tnynevherd at thirty- six cows. But although my new herd was greatly reduced In numbers, the figures that follow will show that my milk production increased. The best days milk record for April, 1928, with 55 cows showed a produc- tion of 1,080 pounds of milk. The beest day's record for November, 1928, with 15 TJB. tested cows milking showed a production of 958 pounds. But the best days milk record for April, 1929, with twenty-three T.B. tested cows ehowed a production of 1114 pounds of milk. I have not fed the new herd any more grain per head than I did the old herd. In conclusion. I believe few dairy- men in New York state have , had more direect experiencee with TJB. than myself. It is my opinion baaed on my actual experience that 20 cows free from TJ3. wgutifcibe naore profit- able for the farmer to keep ~ than 50 head affected with this diease as my dairy was affected- Byron W.

Suit is about to be started by the Farmers National Bank of Adams against 22 prominent Watertown res- idents, including a number of attor- neys, upon a joint note given a num- ber of years ago to finance the Golden West Oil Company. The note origin- ally was for $7,500. It was executed shortly after the formation of the Golden West Oil Company to aid in financing operations on the property in Montana. The Golden West Oil and Develop- ment Company, as it was entitled, was formed through the influence of Eu- gene Cobb, of Montana, a native of Jefferson county and brother of form- er Senator George H. Cobb, then a resident of Montana. Discovery of oil adjacent to the Cobb ranch led to plans for seeking oil on the Cobb and nearby property. , Owing to the large acquaintance- ship of Mr. Cobb in Watertown and vicinity, Jefferson country residents became prominent investors in the Golden. West oil Btock. A consider- able, sum was subscribed and holdings of the company, starting with the Cobb 10 acre ranch as a nucleus, were ex- panded. Drilling was started, and at least one well yielded rather abun- dantly. In ( financing their stock purchas- es, it appears that a number of Water- town subscribers gave personal notes, on which in the case of the joint note held by the Adams bank, the latter now seeks to collect. Attorney Earle Machold represents the banks. Six j'ears ago announcement was made of notion brought In the M tana courts by the Golden West Oil and Development Company against Eugene Cobb, its president, to rescind a contract for the purchase of a 10,-' 000 acre ranch, which it was alleged was sold by Cobb to the company for $102,600, the purchaser also assuming a 'mortgage of some $100,000. It was alleged that the price was in excess of the \actual value of the property . DEATH OF L. H. SHANKENBERY Well -Known Resident of Boonvllle Passes On—Married Mary Kras- back, Mohawk HU1. Lewis H. Shankenbery, well known resident .of Boonville, died last Thurs- day. He was born in Ava, September 29, 1859, the son of Lewis and Hen- rietta Lehr Shankenbery. On Novem ber 28, 1882, at St. Michael's church^ Mohawk' Hill, he was married to Mary Krasback, whose death occurred about two years ago. His early life was spent on a farm, and later he follow- ed the trade of mason. In. 1892 the family moved to Kan- sas City, Mo., where they resided for two years. Returning to Boonville, he conducted a bakery for six years. Mr. Shankenbery was a member of St. \Joseph's church. He is survived by twa children, Mrs. J. H. Hayes, Boonville, and Edwin C. Shankenbery, St. Petersburg, Fla.; three grandchil- dren, Zola, Dexter, and Harland Hayes, Boonville; one niece and one nephew, Miss Viola Shankenbery and Walter Shankenbery, Utica. Funeral services were held Monday. Australian schoolboys visiting in Toronto claimed that Australian girls are better looking than girls In the United States and Canada. But it is to be remembered that these boys have to go back to Australia to live.

Supreme Court Justice Valente has dented the application of the Order of the Eastern Star ot the State of New York for an injunction restraining Mrs. Annie M. Pond, Grand Secretary, from carrying on her duties on the ground that She has been suspended. The court ruled that the defendant Is an elective officer and that the Grand Chapter had no right to suspend her, but that the proper procedure would be to'calf-a new election. The court aaid that the cost of the election would be of less importance than the evils arising from attempt- ing to prevent the Grand Secretary from performing her duties through suspension, which the court said could be used indefinitely to keep an of- ficer properly elected from acting. Mrs. Amy Bishop Crocker, Grand Matron of the order, was the com- plainant against Mrs. Pond, and- al- leged abuse of authority. HEADS FOR CRYSTAL POND A. B, Weaver, Postmaster at New Bremen, Save* Life by Dodging Railroad Crossing. A B. Weaver, who conducts a gen- eral store and serves as postmaster at New Bremen, had a narrow escape at the Lowville and Beaver River rail- road crossing in that place Friday afternoon. Mr. Weaver was ap- proaching the crossing and did not notice an oncoming gasoline coach until about 25 feet from the railroad rails. He realized his inability to bring his automobile to a stop before reaching the track, so turned toward Crystal Pond beside the highway, and drove in. The car dropped four or five feet to the bottom in about five feet of water. Mr. Weaver, although considerably shaken up and somewhat bruised, had little difficulty in getting out of the sedan.
