The stockholders prtsent discussed
at length the affairs of the associa
tion. They are planning to make this
year's fair bigger and a greater suc
cess than ever. It will be seen that
the affairs of the association are in
good order from the accompanying
figures of Treasurer Fred A. Sander
sen's report:
Receipts Balance on hand at the
beginning of the year, $156.14; 1907
appropriation from the state, $229.57;
1D08 appropriation from the state,
$208.M; admission fees, $2,928.40; en
try foes. $578.40; privileges, $653; ad
vertising, $151.40; insurance $500;
total. $5,397.30. '
Expenses Premiums, $2,306.60;
printing and advertising, $503.99; pre
paring grounds, $467.51; help, $310;
amusements. $870; running expenses,
$318.05; borrowed money, $500: bal
ance on hand. $121.15; total, $5,397.30.
In looking over the figures of the
treasurer's report it is seen that last
year s fair was not a paying one. The
uctual receipts of the fair were $4,521.
59. while the actual expenses were
$4,776.15. making a deficit, of $254.66.
This deficit was taken care of by the
plate appropriation for 1907 and the
balance on hand from the previous
year.

MYSTERIOUS PANTHER
Said to Be Rrowlino in the Woods
Near Westfield.
A story suggestive of early settle
ment days is being fold st a panther
that is said to have taken up its home
in the stretch of wooded land north of
the borough, around what is known a.1
the Peckham place. As the story goes,
this panther is no shambling, decrepit
bea;t. seeking the companionship of
civilization in his old age, lut a real,
active terror of the forest, with glit
tering eyes and a body of marvelous
agility, spotted with the markings of
the great cat tribe. The size of the
animal all depends on who tells the
story and varies in- different descrip
tions from three to eight feet in
length. How the animal came to be in
this stretch of woods not inhabited by
any more ferocious animal thp.n the
woodchuck for the past hundred years,
who has seen it and where the minute
descriptions of Its glossy skin, switch
ing tail and cruel claws were obtained
are questions shrouded in obscurity,
yet to many people the animal really
exists In the neighborhood of West
fteki. If this be true, the animal must
be a vegetarian or else exists on fleli
mice, for not a domestic animal is
known to' have been its prey, nor Is
any person to be found willing to ad
mit having personally seen it.

JEWETT CITY.
First Crop of 1909 Ice Cut Wednesday
Twenty-Two Local Farmers Have
Their Own Icehouses Five Mill Tax
Voted Berard-DesjaroHns Marriage.
Several of tha big meat refrigerator?
in the borough were filled for the first
time with new ice Wednesday. It was
cut by Shea Brothers at Kopevllle and
was line and clear, seven Inches thick.
The supply in the big Dorrville houses
has been exhausted for several days-
xne ice industry nas been a growing
one in Jewttt City. First the Email
house was, erected by Ira F. Lewis
thirty yoars ago. This was later
doubled. About twenty years ago G.
A. Haskell built an Icehouse of his own
on the famous old Beckey Tilt proper
ty in connection with his slaughter
house a few feet north of the Lewis
house. Later, after the introduction
of dressed beef made it impracticable
to slaughter local beef to a great ex
tent, the whole plant was converted
into an icehouse. A few years laier
Palmer & Wilkerson built a large
house. Three years ago Shea Brothers,
who now control the ice trade, built
another houfe, further north and of a
greater capacity than the Lewis and
Haskell houses combined. The four
large houses will accommodate a har
vest of about five hundred tons. They
were filled to the roof lust year, the
consumption being all in the borough
except that furnished to tiie Boston
milk car every morning about three
tons a day. One winter about fifteen
years since there was no ice cut on the
Ashland pond, as it did not freeze to
sufficient thickness to support a horse.
Several farmers got a half crop of ice.
What was moat remarkable at tnat
time was that A. F. Read of Lisbon cut
from his old sawmill pond a full har
vest of twelve inch ice. This pond a
small one. not over a half acre) lies
low at the foot of the Read 1.111 and is
surrounded by hills on all sides except
the north. It freezes In the fall and i?
not clear again until well into the
spring. Wednesday evening thi3 pond
had fine ten inch Ice which Mr. Read
will harvest at twelve inches. Twenty
years ago it was an unheard of thing
that a farmer should have an icehouse
of his own, but the building of the
Jewett City creamery and other neces
sary conditions caused farmers to
build, even when a dam had to be
made on some brook to make an arti
ficial pond and today there are twentv
two farmers in town who harvest their
own crop.
