SMALL POX SITUATION.
No New Cases In Wolcott From The Start, And None Looked For.
The small-pox situation in Wolcott is most encouraging. There have been no new cases, the disease, so far as this village is concerned, being held where it was on the start.
Miss Mabel Madan was released several days ago, and her home thoroughly fumigated.
The fumigation at Claude Quick's was begun last night and will be finished to-day.
The same is true at John Conway's.
George Curtis will be released the last of the week.
This leaves Guy Kellogg the sole case, and it will not be long before he can be released. His case is the last in Wolcott Village.
In Huron township Truman Warner's wife and four-year-old daughter have the disease. John Warner's wife has it, and there is another case under suspicion. It is early yet to form a positive opinion in this case but indications point that way.
Miss Mabel Madan, of Wolcott, was released last Saturday night after a thorough fumigation with sulphur and formaldehyde. Every trunk was opened and the goods given a through disinfection. The fumes of the sulphur were so strong Sunday night that the family could hardly stand it to sleep in the house.
Many persons in and about Wolcott have been made down sick by vaccination, a few being broken out with kinepox. In most instances such cases have been little children. In scores of cases people have been so sick that they were unable to work for a few days, while others have kept going who did not feel hardly able to crawl about.
School children have been sorely afflicted. The older ones have generally kept in school, but many of them were half sick and not able to do much with their studies and recitations.
On Monday out of a total membership of 317, there were 171 present. This was better than last week, when one day there were only 151 present.
The attendance on Tuesday was 175 present and 142 absent.
At Cato a death was reported last week, the victim being Mrs. Will Mosher, but in her case there were said to be complications.
Mrs. A.D. Sage, of Wolcott, will ship her furniture to-day to Canandaigua, and will move there to-morrow with her family, having rented a house at 13 Coy street.
Dr. G. B. Mack, who has been in New York since last October, arrived home Tuesday night, and will visit his people in Butler for a fortnight, when he will go to the Albany Homeopathic City hospital.
W. D. Campbell, of Wolcott, was back from Cato for a few hours last Saturday. His mother is steadily failing, having been much worse for the past week or two. It is not expected that she can live very long.
Miss Ida Milliman, of Red Creek, who for two years past has been a clerk in Thacker Bro's & Co's store, Wolcott, went home during the recent scare, and it is doubtful if she will return. Her place has been taken by Miss Eva Prevost.
Ed A. Wadsworth, Walter R. Strait, Milton E. Gates, Lester Caster and Porter Brockway, of Wolcott, went to Oswego on Monday, where they joined Shilling's Third Battalion band, and went to Kingston, Ont., to play at the Queen's-birthday celebration, returning home on Wednesday.
Arvin H. Creque, who left Wolcott several months ago, was in town last Saturday, returning to Fair Haven, where he is stopping at present. While here he made an offer of $2,200 for Mrs. H. C. Merrill's farm on East Port Bay street. The offer was declined, $2,500 being the price. The farm contains about 40 acres.
Moses P. Conner expects Charles J. Wangman, of Rochester, here this week to close the deal for Conner's hotel. Mr. Wangman stands six feet four inches, and weighs 270 lb. After moving out, Mr. Conner will visit his daughter, Mrs. Daniel E. Shea, of Watertown, for a couple of weeks. He expects to make his home in Wolcott.
Judson H. Dowd, a charter member of the Wolcott old soldiers, automobile club, got his wheel chair in order last Saturday for the first time since the first of April. His health has suffered for lack of outdoor exercise, but now he hopes to keep going until cold weather stops him. When he took his machine to be overhauled it was found that the cones were worn out, and only now has it been put in order for his use.
Lorenzo Hall, who for the last five weeks has been working with his team at the fort in Oswego, was home over Sunday and Monday. The government is removing the old buildings from the fort enclosure and leveling the grounds, preparatory to putting up new buildings. Mr. Hall says one of the buildings being taken down was put up only a few years ago at the cost of $35,000. Since going to work in Oswego Mr. Hall's big gray horse had died of indigestion.
George Quereau, of North Rose, who recently returned from an extended trip to California and Colorado, was in Wolcott on Tuesday. He thinks some of selling out and moving to California being much pleased with the climate there. He has a brother at San Diego in the hotel business. He also met Horace Hendrick, formerly of Wolcott, who is in the laundry business there, and found him prosperous and in good health. Mr. Quereau was not able to stay long in the high altitude of Colorado.
FRANK POTTER SENTENCED.
Frank Potter, the 18-year-old Huron farm hand who was indicted for grand larceny in the second degree, for stealing an Arabian stallion from Judson Jones last March, was sentenced on Monday to Elmira Reformatory under the provisions of the law applying in such cases. Potter was an inmate of the State Industrial School at Rochester up to last year, having been convicted once before on a similar charge.
HAIL AND HIGH WIND YESTERDAY.
Albert Wells's Silo Went Over and His Dryhouse Was Moved
The heat of yesterday morning was followed at noon by a thunder storm, with hail for about three minutes, and a high wind.
It is feared that the hailstones did some damage to the apple trees, which now are in full bloom.
The storm amounted to a tornado in parts of Butler and Rose townships. The northerly edge of the storm was between Morton Persons and Byron Southwick's, both in the corporation.
Considerable damage was done south of Rose Valley, one barn there being reported torn to pieces.
Irving Lash and Albert Drury each had one apple tree toppled over.
Four of Byron Southwick's maple trees were laid over, and he lost some apple trees.
The most damage was done at Albert Well's farm, a mile south of Wolcott on the Clyde road. He lost seven apple trees in his orchard.
His new silo went over and rolled back of the barn. It will have to be taken apart, but the lumber can be used in the construction of a new one.
His dry house, which stood on 14-inch posts, was moved four feet to the east and five feet to the south, the chimney being broken squarely off inside the building.
It is understood this morning that Charles Blake and others in that locality lost apple trees.
LADIES LITERARY CLASS.
The Ladies' Literary class, of Wolcott, met at the home of Mrs. E. H. Kellogg this week. Mrs. J. G. Strait was the reader. The following program was given: Selections from Mark Twain, Mrs. Curtis; sketches of Field and Riley, Mrs. J. Brewster; selection from Field and Riley, Mrs. Kellogg.
Then followed the election of officers for the coming year: President, Mrs. D. B. Horton; vice-president, Mrs. E. J. Lytle; secretary Mrs. T. G. Henderson, treasurer, Mrs. J. R. Waldorf.
It was decided to take up American authors during the coming year.
This was the last meeting this year with the exception of the banquet which will be held on the evening of June 7 at the house of Mrs. Bevier and Mrs. Latimer, the reception being held at Mrs. Bevier's and the refreshments served and toasts given at Mrs. Latimer's. As is their custom, the ladies will entertain their husbands at the annual banquet.
FARM SOLD ON A MORTGAGE.
De L. Stow, of Clyde, sold two parcels of land owned by Ira Drury, of Wolcott, at mortgage sale Monday afternoon from the steps of the Wolcott house. The foreclosure proceedings were begun by Mrs. John E. Hough, of South Butler, whose claim, including interest and costs, amounted to $2,100.
The property included a farm of 50 acres on the plank road, Wolcott township, and a tract of 16 acres, near where Mr. Drury lives, fronting on Cemetery street. Part of this land contains a berry patch and the Catchpole gun club's house stands on the lot.
The two parcels were sold at once and were bid in at $1,400 by George O. Baker of Clyde, who represented Mrs. Hough.
THE BEN BROWN PLACE SOLD.
The Ben Brown place, on East Port Bay street, Wolcott township, has been sold to William Lash. The papers have not passed yet, as the deed had to be sent to Colorado for the signature of a daughter, Hattie Brown. The farm consists of about fifty acres.
The consideration was $2,000.
CLAUDE T. METCALF'S NEW TEAM.
Claude T. Metcalf, of Wolcott, bought a new team in East Syracuse last week. They were delivered to him at Cato on Thursday, and he led them in from there. They weigh 2,100 pounds, are five and six years old, and of mouse color, looking like a black team that have been clipped. One is a horse and the other a mare. They came from the Kansas stock ranch of A. D. Ellis, Willis S. Roe's partner in the banking firm of Roe & Ellis, Wolcott.
WENT THROUGH 2 FEET OF IRON ORE.
Charles Demarest, of Fair Haven , recently finished drilling a well for the Sodus Co-operative skimming station at North Wolcott, on land owned by N. J. Field.

MRS. BRINK'S FINE OFFER.
Government Appointed Her to a Railroad Post Office Clerkship
Mrs. A. C. Brink, wife of the Wolcott postmaster, now has more than ever a right to be called "Aunt Sam," for the federal government, through its civil service commission, has appointed her to a government mail clerkship, and has designated her run as between Rochester and Albany, daily.
The mere fact that she doesn't intend to accept, and that her husband doesn't want to hear the subject talked about, has nothing to do with the case.
A long time ago-so long that she had forgotten all about it-while visiting her mother in Rochester, for the lack of something more interesting to do, Mrs. Brink tried the civil service examination.
The official who conducted the examination was gallant enough to compliment her dexterity in the sorting of mail matter, and she found out later that only one of those who tried stood higher than she.
On Thursday last she was notified that she had been appointed to a run on the main line of the New York Central. When she showed the notification to her husband he became somewhat excited, but became easier in his mind when he found she had no notion of accepting the offer.
Mail clerks start a $900 a year, and are advanced to $1,400 by slow degrees. There is only one lady clerk in the whole United States. It is from this corps that all the postal inspectors are appointed. But "Aunt Sam" will stand by the postmaster, though she may take advantage of this fine offer to strike him for an advance in salary.

Killed by Quick Consuption After an Illness of Seven Weeks.
Miss Bessie E. Barrick, who lived with her uncle, Charles Dean, near Richardson's corners, died at noon on Tuesday of quick consumption.
She had the measles three years ago, and the grip one year ago, but seemingly, had fully recovered her health, when she was taken down seven weeks ago.

Her age was 18 years, her birthday being the 17th of September. Her mother was Mrs. Dean's sister, and they had made it their home there for the last seventeen years, moving there from Sodus Center. For four years, while Bessie attended the Wolcott High-school, where she finished last June, they lived in this village.
The funeral will be held from the house at 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon, the interment being in the Leavenworth cemetery. It is expected that Rev. W. H. Latimer will officiate.

Mrs. G. W. Ball, of Hilton, arrived in Wolcott Monday noon. She had made arrangements to take her sister, Miss Beatrice Chapple, back with her. For the past few weeks, Miss Chapple had been at Andrew J. Kelly's house on East Port Bay street. For the last week they had been alarmed about her condition, and as a result Mrs. Ball was sent for.
The original plan was to take the 1:58 train west on Monday, Miss Chapple was placed on a cot and taken in a carriage. She rode very comfortably, and stood the trip well. The train was held for ten minutes, but they did not get there in time even with that delay, arriving about five minutes after the train had gone.
Miss Chapple was made comfortable at Connor's hotel until Tuesday morning, when they took the 7:12 train.
Miss Chapple was taken to Hilton on a cot in the baggage car. She was accompanied by Dr. R. H. Watkins and A. B. Sabin, Sr. who returned yesterday.
It is hoped that once rested from the trip, her condition may improve under the care of her sister.
Girl's Arm Broken In Runaway.
Serious Driving Accident to Irving Lash and family Last Friday.
Irving Lash and family, of Wolcott, had a runaway accident on West Port Bay street last Friday afternoon, in front of Fred Fox's tenant house. He had with him in the carriage his wife and two children, and was driving a team of colts. They had been to visit at Andrew J. Kelly's and were on their way home.
The horses saw colts running in the lot, and started to run with them, finally going so fast that Mr. Lash lost control of them.
They ran into an orchard and struck an apple tree, the team parting as they struck. The harness was torn apart and the wagon was broken so they could not use it to get home.
All were thrown out. One of the children, a girl nine years old, had an arm broken. Dr. J. J. Tillapaugh reduced the fracture at his office, where they all stopped on their way home. Mrs. Lash's back was somewhat bruised.
AMONG THE SICK
Willard, little son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Raynor, of Wolcott, was quite sick a couple of days last week with tonsillitis, and under the care of Dr. R. H. Watkins.
Dr. D. B. Horton, of Wolcott, went to Butler one day last week and cut off both tonsils for Miss Carrie Miller, whose parents live on the Patterson place.
Miss Ethel Pearsall, of Wolcott, who teaches the school at Stewart's corners, was taken ill Sunday night at the home of her father, William Pearsall. Dr. S. W. Houston, who is attending her, suspects that she has typhoid fever.
Mrs. T. J. Wise, of Wolcott, returned at 2 p.m. last Saturday from a visit to Fulton. Her daughter, aged thirteen months, was taken ill with pneumonia, and since her return has been seriously ill. Dr. J. J. Tillapaugh is in attendance. There has been no consolidation of the lung yet, and he is in hopes that there may not be.
Mrs. Kate Calkins, of West Butler, has been quite ill of liver trouble for the past week. Her sister, Mrs. Lucy Marble, died at her house a week ago to-day, and Mrs. Calkins was taken at about the same time, preventing the funeral being held there. Mrs. Calkins is 84 years old. She is being attended by Dr. J. J. Tillapaugh.
Raymond H. Kelly, of Wolcott, who has been laid up for the last month with imflammation of the knee joints, is gaining slowly. His physician keeps his knees blistered all the time, keeping on four that measure two by four inches. As fast as the old ones get so that he can live with them comfortably, they are taken off and new ones put on. [NOTE: this makes no sense, but this is the way it was written.]
Mrs. Leslie Brockway, of Wolcott, has not returned yet from Sterling Valley, where she is caring for her mother, Mrs. Belle Parish. When last heard from Mrs. Brockway said her mother was a trifle easier, and the trouble from gall stones was thought to have been passed. She was able, also to take a little nourishment which a week ago she was not about to do.
Charles H. Hurd, of Indianapolis, son-in-law of E. B. Dowd, of Wolcott, who is ill of typhoid fever, is doing fairly well. His physician has brought down his temperature nearly to the normal and is in hopes to hold it there. He looks to see the disease continue in its present mild form. Mr. Hurd had the disease once before, at Harrisburg, Pa., and it is thought he will not have it so hard on that account.
Drum Corps Rents a Hall.
The Wolcott drum corps, of which E. T. Phillips is the leader, have rented Wiltford's opera house for practice Wednesday nights. They have fourteen members.
The Rose drum corps of six have decided to join with them and will come here for practice twice a month, going away with them when they have a call.
There will be considerable business for bands and drum corps this fall, growing out of the presidential campaign.
The Wadsworth band, which has voted to disband, have money in their treasury to pay the little they owe.
Fishing at Port Bay.
Fine Strings of Pickerel Continue to Be Caught Every Day.
The pickerel continue to be greedy at Port bay. Generally speaking the greater part of the fishing is on the heads, and there the fish are not large, averaging from 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. The big fish seem to have gone into deep waters. A few pike are being taken. The bass fishing will begin the 15th of June, and by that time the mooneyes will have entered the bay, when the pickerel fishing will end.
Several parties were out last Thursday, C. E. Johnson, Rev. W. H. Latimer and Jay Salter took three small pickerel.
Lee VanValkenburg and Postmaster A. C. Brink got nine pickerel and two pike, averaging from 2 1/2 to 3 pounds. They had their best luck with a spinner sword on which they strung live minnows.
B. S. Wood and Roy Lefevre, who were working by the day at Russell's island, put in an hour fishing and landed two 3 pounders.
Micheal Sennett and Milton E. Gates got five, weighing from 2 to 4 pounds, in an hour. Herb. Wellington and Fred Green, who were in the same party, got two.
C. F. Van Valkenburg and John Otis went on Friday. Thye fished on the head, near Heald's, and took fourteen pickerel before 3 p.m. The fish averaged small, but there were four or five over four pounds. They think they would have broken the record had it not been for the rain in the afternoon. Once they took four in a row of less than a half mile.
The same day Joel Fanning got three pickerel, weighing 1 1/2, 4 and 4 1/2 pounds.
Charles S. Graves and W. V. Bidwell went to Loon Point late Friday afternoon. They got five fish in thirty minutes, and then it came on to rain and they quit.
There were several, other parties at the bay the first of this week. M. E. Gates and Clark Foster caught, fifteen pickerel, several of them very large ones.
Allie Westfall, Jesse Heit and C. H. Thomas took twelve.
The bay is full of shiners and the pickerel are following the bait. Most of the fishing is still on the heads. They do not take hold as they did last week. Mooneyes have been seen, the outlet is open, and the spring pickerel fishing soon will be at an end.
The lake perch are just beginning to take hold. After June 15 there amy be some good bass fishing.
Last Saturday E. J. Cornwell, Principle L. H. Carris and Master Ralph Paddock took fifteen pickerel, the boy catching his full share.
Joel Fanning and Edward T. Brown tried their luck Tuesday afternoon, getting three pickerel.
An agent of the state fish commission arrived here at 2 p. m. yesterday with 250,000 yellow pike fry, which were liberated in Port bay. Application was made for the fry by Milton E. Gates, who also asked for 300,000 maskinonge fry.

OF INTEREST TO APPLE MEN.
L. S. Towne Settles with a Man Who Owed Him a Carload of Chops.
[Transcriber's Note: I believe this is the same L. S. Town in the above ROSE column]
A suit at law of interest to apple men was settled out of court last Friday. In the fall of 1902, L. S. Towne, of Rose, brought a carload of chops from O. A. Huff, of Kent, Orleans county, to be delivered Nov. 1 that year.
Chops went up, and Huff didn't deliver the goods. Last summer Mr. Towne directed George S. Horton, of Wolcott, to sue. An offer to settle for $150 was refused by Huff, so an action was brought for failure to comply with the contract to sell, which was to have come on at the present term of court.
At the last moment Huff offered to pay $100 and cost, which offer was accepted.
Making Twelve Cheeses a Day.
Wesley Bird, cheese maker at the Cold Spring factory, Huron, made twelve cheeses a day all week, and within a week or ten days, if the feed continues to improve, expects to be making twenty cheese a day.
Twelve cheeses means 4,000 pounds of milk a day. The present price is 7 3/4 cents a pound. A year ago at this time cheese was worth about 9 cents, or perhaps a little more than that. The lower price is accounted for by the large quantity of cold-storage and hay cheese on the market. Higher prices are looked for later in the season.
Sharp Competition in Calf Buying.
There has been sharp competition in the buying of calves in the Wolcott market, so sharp that is understood that some money has been lost. Last Saturday a high as five cents a pound was paid, but since then 4 1/2 cents has been the top offer. Granville L. Armstrong is paying that figure.
James Stubley, who has been buying for Burke Bros., of Clyde, has had a misunderstanding with them, and on Tuesday was threatening to bring a lawsuit.
