"Nigger Tom." The dog "Tom" the pie-faced but clever canine that has been the Com was the happiest dog in the country last mercial hotel mascot for many moons, Monday. Tom was promised to County Commissioner Deans' little girl some time ago, but he became such a prime favorite about the hotel that Manager Burrell was loth to part with Tom. Mr. Deans' little girl was down last week and Mr. Burrell made good his promise and gave Tom to the girl who took him home with her Saturday. But Tom did not like his new play ground and longed for his old beat at the Commercial hotel. He was so rest less and ill at ease that Mr. Deans con cluded to bring the dog back Monday and Manager Burrell was surprised to see Tom hop off the morning train, and make a bee line to the "bus like any old-time commercial traveler. Tom jumped onto the seat and placed his fore paws out the window with evident enjoyment and satisfaction, and when he reached the hotel he was perfectly delighted to be home again. Mr. Deans' little girl was compensated for her loss by being presented by Mr. Burrell with a handsome large doll, that certainly is the queen of dolldom. She returned home Monday with the doll, while '"Nigger Tom*' and his grinning mug fill a long-felt want at the Commercial hotel. Spanish War .Pensions. Sixty thousand claims for pensions have been filed by those who enlisted to light against Spain. It is probably a good thing that the question of these pensions should be raised at once and settled while the matter i- fresh, but it hurts one's idea of patriotism. Everyone wants justice for the victims of that unfortunate war, but of the 60.000 claimants only about 12,000 are worthy. Of the large number of beers on the market, golden grain belt beer is most worthy of your confidence. It's just what it tastes like, a pure refresh ing beverage that's good for hunger and thirst.

The Oneonta Daily Sun of July 14th, says: "'Some time ago the Resinol Chemical company of Baltimore offered prizes to the most handsome children the pictures of whom should be for warded to them.

We understand that proceedings have been commenced to dissolve the incorporation of the village of Grandy. This village was organized last winter but it seems that everything has not moved along pleasantly and that many believe that the additional expense of keeping up a village organization is not warranted, and an election will be held soon to see if a majority of the people are not in favor of dissolution.
