To use a hackneyed term, the political pot is beginning to boil in Wolcott, but there is a lamentable lack of fuel. In other words, neither party knows for sure where it is at and when it comes to a nomination for supervisor, nobody wants to run.

The Republicans could find a candidate but for the fact that every man approached has a sneaking idea that Charlie Madan may run against him.

The Democrats could agree handily but for a sneaking fear that Mr. Madan will be as good as his word and flatly refuse to run even if nominated. Madan holds the key to the situation.

Two years ago he accepted a nomination rather unwillingly and with the express proviso that he would never run again. This was wholly voluntary on his part; nobody asked for or desired any such pledge from him. Now the rank and file of the party want him to run again-in which case it would be all over but the shouting,- but he has given no intimation that he will consent.

At least three well-known Republicans are said to have been approached, and one Democrat but all said "no" with great vehemence. The party leaders are up a tree.

A full ticket will be nominated this fall. Already conferences are in order, and some wise people look much wiser than they really are. But be not deceived; they know no more about what the outcome will be than you do.


A pretty wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Judson B. Morris, of Rose, at 5 o'clock last Saturday, Aug. 25, when their only daughter, Reva Pauline, became the bride of Douglas O. Scofield, of Rochester. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. L. J Reed, of Ilion, an uncle of the bride.

Miss Bessie McOmber, of Ontario, was maid of honor. the Misses Pauline Wilson of Wolcott, and Laura Wellott, of Red Creek, were bridesmaids. Master Giles Rolfe Scofield, Jr., a nephew of the groom was ring bearer, and little Virginia Armstrong was flower girl. The best man was Fred Lewis, of Rochester, the ushers being Ray McOmber, of Ontario and John Williams, of Wolcott.

Promptly at 5 o'clock Mrs. Iva Reed Gage, a cousin of the bride, sang "I Love You Truly." Then as the strains of the wedding chorus, played by Miss Anna Frances Valentine sounded, the ushers, descending from the house, opened gates leading into an aisle of pine and ribbon, through which the bridal party passed, to take their places before a beautiful alter of pine banked with golden glow, on the spacious lawn.

The bridesmaids were clad in faile taffeta gowns of changeable tomato and gold and changeable lemon and gold. They carried bouquets of pink roses. They were followed by the ring bearer, bearing the ring in the heart of a white rose. The little flower girl, who was dressed in white organdie, carried a basket of beautiful pin roses.

The maid of honor wore a gown of changeable green and gold taffeta and carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses and lilies of the valley.

The bride walked alone clad in an elaborately draped gown of white georgette crepe, with full tulle veil caught with orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses and lilies of the valley.

They were met at the alter by the groom and the best man.

The bride's mother was gowned in royal blue charmeuse satin and the mother of the groom in black brocaded satin.

The bride's traveling gown was cocoa brown canton crepe with hat and slippers to match.

The bride's gift to the maid of honor were pearl ear drops; to the bridesmaids, white gold bar pins, to the organist, a jeweled comb; to ring bearer and flower girls, gold rings.

Following the ceremony a five-course dinner was served by Caterer L. W. Knapp, of Wolcott, to 83 guests from Rochester, Rose, Red Creek, Albion, Lyndonville and North Rose.

Among the pre-nuptial events were a variety shower by the faculty of the Walden high school, of which the bride was a member; a variety shower by Mrs. Fowler and Mrs. Terbush; a variety shower by the Arethusa girls of the Geneseo normal school, and a kitchen shower by the Misses Frances Valentine and Bessie McOmber.

A dinner party was given for the groom by 65 women associates of the Crescent-Puritan laundry, They presented him with a mahogany clock. A stag dinner was given at the Hotel Manitou, Manitou Beach, by the men of the Crescent-Puritan laundry, who gave him a reading lamp.

The young couple were recipients of many lavish gifts.

The bride is a graduate of the Wolcott high school and the Geneseo normal school. She is a member of the Arethusa society. She has been a very successful teacher, having taught for three years, the past year at Walden.

Mr. Scofield is a partner with his father in the Crescent-Puritan laundry in Rochester.

Mr. and Mrs. Scofield left on a motor trip through the New England states. They will be at home after Sept. 4, at No 560 Flower City park, Rochester.


While going to Rochester on a shopping trip last Friday, Mrs. Fred W. King and Miss Florence King met with an unusual mishap. When near Ontario Center their car began to stagger, and they barely succeeded in getting it to one side of the road.

An investigation revealed the fact that the gasoline tank at the rear, supplied with fifteen gallons of fluid just before they started, had disappeared.

A kindly garage man helped them to run back to Williamson in search of the tank, but they found no trace of it. Someone had gathered it in for what it contained.

By filling and refilling the little vacuum feed tank, they contrived to limp into Rochester, where the Hupmobile service station supplied them with a new tank.

The most annoying feature of the whole misadventure to them was that everyone who heard of it at once grinned and remarked, " Now, ain't that funny?"

The ladies assert that it wasn't funny at all.


Mrs. Ruth Kelley Brannan, who resided at the family home south of the brick schoolhouse west of Resort in the town of Huron, was found dead in bed at about 6 a. m. last Friday, by her mother, who went to call her to breakfast. A clot of blood in the heart was found to have been the cause by Drs. Jones, Lewis and Houston, who were summoned and performed an autopsy. It is believed that she passed away in her sleep at about 5 o'clock.

She was apparently in good health, having visited Wolcott the evening before, and having planned an automobile trip through the southern part of the state, to start on the day she died. Mrs. Brannan was nearly 33 years of age, having been born in the house where she passed away, on Aug. 28, 1890.

She was a daughter of the late Robert Kelley and is survived by her aged mother, Mrs. Emogene J. Kelley; one brother, Ernest J. Kelley, and two children, Jay, aged 13, and Pearle, 11 years of age.

Mrs. Brannan was a cousin of Willis Michell, of this village, and former student of the Wolcott high school. She was well and favorably known here, having been a devoted mother, daughter and sister and a consistent member of the Alton M. P. church, always striving to do right.

The largely-attended funeral was held on Sunday afternoon, at 2 o'clock from the house and a half hour later from the Alton M. P. church. The Rev. H. N. Becker, of Rochester, a former pastor, officiated. Interment was made in the family plot in York Settlement cemetery.


The family of Adelbert Phillips, of the Furnace, were sorely afflicted on Monday of this week, when the wife and mother, Mrs. Anne Abrams Phillips, passed away at 10 a. m., following a stroke of apoplexy at 3 o'clock that morning. While her health had not been good for some time, owing to hardening of the arteries and other complications, yet she had been about, and there was nothing to indicate that the end was so near.

She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Abrams, of North Wolcott, and was 52 years of age on March 16, last. A son, George Phillips, of this village and a daughter, Leta, at home, survive in the immediate family, besides the bereaved husband. Mrs. Phillips was a sister of Mrs. Jasper Countryman, of this township, and also left a brother, Henry Abrams, of Auburn, and a half sister.

The deceased was a faithful member of the local M. E. church, a good neighbor and a good friend. She will be keenly missed by many, and much sympathy goes out to the immediate family.

The funeral was held from the house at 2 p. m., Wednesday, the Rev. S. G. Houghton officiating. Interment was made at North Wolcott.


Warren Seager a well-known resident of the town of Rose, was attacked by appendicitis last week Tuesday. By Thursday his condition became so grave that he was hurried to the York hospital, where he submitted to an operation in the afternoon. The appendix was found to have burst, and the abdominal cavity was flooded with pus, resulting in peritonitis, from which he passed away shortly before 1 p. m., Sunday.

Mr. Seager's death shocked the community, as only a comparatively few knew that he was ill till they learned of the fatal termination of the attack. He was a kind and indulgent husband and father, and had many friends.

His age was about 57 years. Surviving in his immediate family are his widow and six children, viz: Minnie, Edwin, Wesley, Russell, Olive and Glenn Seager, besides a grandchild, Willis Seager. He also left three brothers, George Seager, of Alton; Oscar and Norman Seager, of North Rose, and three sisters, Mrs. George Ball, Sr., Mrs. Walter Messenger and Mrs. William Green, all of North Rose.

The funeral was held from the house at 2 p. m., Tuesday, with interment in the Lovejoy cemetery. The Rev. F. W. Kneeland officiated.


The remains of Mrs. Blanche Bird Swearingen, wife of the Rev. C. E. Swearingen, pastor of the Ontario Congregational church, were brought to Wolcott last Sunday afternoon and laid to rest beside her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Bird, in Glenside cemetery.

Mrs. Swearingen, who attended school in Wolcott and had many friends here, died suddenly while in Detroit with her husband, who was taking his annual vacation. Death came with little warning, as she had appeared in her usual health the day before.

The deceased left an only sister, LouElla, now Mrs. Carl Ballard, of Mexico, N. Y. She attended the funeral, as did E. E. Winsor, of Rochester, a cousin of the deceased. A large delegation including members of the Eastern Star, accompanied the body from Ontario.


Mr. and Mrs. Albert Dobbin have received a telegram from their son, Dee, at Hodges, Mont., notifying them of the death of the latter's son, Edwin, aged 11 years. The only detail given was that the funeral was to be held last Saturday, but further facts were to follow by letter.


Dodge Brothers received a rather cool reception by the local Baptist church last Friday afternoon at about five-thirty. The church doors were closed when they attempted to enter. Being denied admittance and doubtless being rather peeved at such treatment, they scarred the side of the brick structure even at the cost of a crumpled mudguard and a sprung front axle.

The occasion of the above mentioned call was when the said Dodge Brothers became excited as they rolled west in Main street at the approach of Harry Shear and family in their touring car. The latter car was forced to change its course a few points to the westward, but the Dodge Brothers, chaperoned by a lady, accompanied by her husband, both strangers, sailed right up to the church.

Westfall & Fox rendered first aid and the brothers rolled on, perhaps much wiser, though less piously inclined.


A fair crowd witnessed last Thursday's baseball game at East Side park, when Wolcott won over Clyde by a score of 6 to 1. The visitors had been hailed as a winning combination, but if they were it was certainly their off day.

George "Beauty" Parsons pitched for the visitors, and had he received good support, would have given the Wolcott boys a stiff game. He pitched in good form. Ralph Phelps did the honors for Wolcott in first class style, Frank Oliver receiving behind the bat.

The local team has found it uphill work financing baseball this year. Fans have not turned out in numbers to warrant a continuance of the games this season and no more are scheduled according to present arrangements. Those who witnessed the last game, however, agreed that the home boys were well worth backing and it is hoped that next season will witness a series which will be successful financially as well as otherwise.

Last Thursday's game was marked by one incident more amusing to the spectators than to the victim. In running after a foul fly in the sixth inning, the third baseman collided violently with LaVerne Olmsted's hot-dog stand, which was set up on a row of shoe or cracker boxes, and great was the downfall of sizzling Coney Islands, ice-cream cones, soft-drinks and cigars. In fact, the emporium went, temporarily out of business in about a sixth of a second.

But LaVerne is a resourceful young man, and though shy about 30 cigars, which went into the pockets of volunteer helpers, was soon doing business again as briskly as before. He wishes it understood that Kenneth Streeter was a partner in his misfortunes, and divided with him the ten cents net profits of the day.

According to the Rome Daily Sentinel, Delos Hickok, of that city and formerly of Wolcott and Rose, has won for himself athletic honors in his home city. He and Virgil Gardinier, last week Monday, won the Rome city doubles tennis championship before a large crowd of fans.

The opposing combination was made up by Lester Lovier, the Notre Dame collegian, and Francis Allison. Losing the first set, which was the best and closest of the evening, the victors took the remaining sets in easy style. The scores were 6-8, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2. The winners hold their honors secure until next summer.

The Sunday school will meet immediately at the close of the morning service. The world is flooded with sex nastiness in novels and shows, and the results are most disgustingly seen in life. The cry of all foresighted people is "change this!" Why? Because God commands it. The strong literature depicts gender, but not sex.

The Block party, Tuesday night, was a huge success. In spite of the rain there was a big crowd present. The grab-bag was sold out early in the evening, while ice cream and popcorn, candy, punch and hot-dogs were selling at a lively rate all evening. When it rained, those present began playing games in the barn with the assistance of Scott Brothers' orchestra, or listened to Mrs. Ida Jones lecture on Czecho-Slovakia. Mrs. Jones has recently made a trip there and brought back some interesting costumes, pictures, etc. Following the lecture and games there was a concert on the porch of the Griswold home. We feel ourselves indebted to Mrs. Wodden and Mrs. Gillett, of Clyde, for their songs. We owe Seth Oaks, of North Rose, our gratitude for his help in the program with songs, beautifully sung, and the Scott Brothers' orchestra for being always ready with music to keep the ball rolling. The moon came out of hiding before long and the evening was pronounced a success by all there, even if some of the many Japanese lanterns were darkened by the rain. We cleared over one hundred dollars. The community spirit was fine. It looks as if the church and manse will soon have the lights the party helped to procure. Our community feels thankful to Miss Dowd and her assistants for her public spirited undertaking. Mr. Davis gave his time and truck to haul ice cream, tables and the piano which Mr. VanPatten so kindly loaned for the concert. We thank the many stores of Wolcott for their kindly donations to out party. With such public spirit and good will we are serene in the thought that big things lie before us in the future in the progress and development toward a well organized Christian neighborly community in Huron.

Next Sunday's sermon topic will be, "Stewardship." Everyone is cordially invited to attend and to remain for Sunday school immediately after.

After this week the Junior society will meet Saturday afternoons at 3 o'clock There were 23 present last week, but all who could come are not here yet. It is worth while. Let's make it grow.

The Senior C. E. topic is "Lessons from the Psalms." Lynn Wright will lead. Let us all turn out to help make the meeting a success.

The Teachers' Training class will meet, after this week, every Monday evening at 8 o'clock. Our study of the Bible and the life of Christ begins with the next lesson.

If anyone has borrowed one of the church's ice-cream freezers' please return it. It is a new one, and its loss is felt very much every time we have a social.

Let's all get together and boost Huron township-it's worth while.


A state mineral inspector named Weed from Central Square, N. Y., called on J. W. Galloway, Tuesday, accompanied by two oil men, and tested Mr. Galloway's gas well in the gorge. He found a pressure of 25 pounds to the square inch, and told the owner that the well was worth $15,000 just as it stood, and that the present flow would easily light and heat his buildings if piped to them.

It was the inspector's opinion that, if cleared out, the well would heat and light the village; and he also declared that deeper boring in this section would almost certainly result in the finding of oil.

Mr. Galloway is determined to find a way to go on with the enterprise in some manner in the near future.
