Emporium is being mapped out for the benefit of Fire Insurance Compan ies, who pay liberally for the service. The town has advanced in improve ments so rapidly during the past six years that it is necessary to make a new insurance map of the Borough and Mr. E. G. Chambers, of New York City, has been located here for the past two weeks engaged in the work. The last map of Emporium was made in 1903. As an illustration, the map now being made of Emporium will, at the outset, be a drawing to scale on a large sheet of paper, lined in small squares. The topography of the different town divisions is first drawn and the ground floor of each house or building is penciled in its appropriate place with marks which act to the initiated, as guides to the general character of each structure, the material entering into the construction of each building and other pointers for the benefit of those who fix the rates for the insurance companies. These drawings are made to scale, generally fifty feet to the inch. When completed, they are sent to the home office and litographed, being then bound in book form and sold to the fire insurance companies. The first map of this kind ever made dates back to 1871, when it was prepared in Boston by Mr. Sanborn, the founder of the company bearing his name. The com pany is heavily capitalized, and em ploys about 200 fieldman and a large office force and has prepared mapß of about 6000 town and cities, over almost the entire area of the United States. House Parties. The homes of W. G. Bair and wife and P. H. Burke and wife were the scenes of much merry making the first of the week. They entertained a party of friends from Olean and to say that they had a good time would be putting it mildly. The party arrived from Olean on the evening train on Monday and from that time until their depart ure on the noon train Wednesday, there was one continual round of pleasure. Tuesday was spent atKey stone Park and was a day that will be long remembered as a day of feasting and pleasure. The party was compos ed of the following: Mrs. Rose Lupoid, Mr. ar.d Mrs. Will Dodson and son, Mrs. Claud Mayer and son, Mrs. Wm. Hannifan, Mrs. Langford Rodgers, Mrs. Josephine Dunlavey and Miss Mayme Fitzpatrick. Cedar Shingles §4.50 per thousand at C. B. Howard & Co's. Opening of Schools. Tlio schools will open on Monday, 1 Sept. 6th.

PLASTERER, Principal. Olean Fair and Races. The Big Fair at Olean will start one week from Monday. At present the Association has in view a gigantic Automobile parade for the morning of Labor Day. In the? afternoon the many atheletic events scheduled will take place. This includes the much adver tised seven mile marathon, which will be a popular feature of the day. The inquires in the live stock de partment have been so numerous that the association has finally decided to keep the books open until Sept. 4, or when the capacity is reached. We trust that those who have not their cn tri js already in will attend to them at o> e, as space is going rapidly. In t' . Horse Department, the Asso ciation has decided to add a class for Standard Bred. This will be known as Sect. 6 and will have the same class divisions as Sect. 2, This will allow many horsemen compete who have not cared to enter their horses in the other clashes. The Do mestic Departmet entries are coming nicely and all women desiring to enter should do so at an early date. Tins will facilitate matters both for them selves and the office force. Between the heats of the races each day the Special Attractions will bo given in front of the Grand Stand. A large platform has been erected for this pur pose. Among the Attractions will be found The Great Huntley, the marvel ous high wire artist whose tricks of two years ago are still remembered, Mile. Emerie & Co., will present famous aer lel trapeze acts. This troupe comes directly from Europe, and this will be their first appearance this season in this country. Miss Tina Broakwiek with her father will perform many difficult aeriel feats. As Miss Tina i H only 14 years old, no one should miss the chance to see this child wonder. As previously announced Chamberlain's Baby Show will take place Tuesday morning of the Fair. The entries have been so numerous that it will necessitate using the Grand Stand for this exhibition. Miss Hazel Lewis of this city will have general supervision of the department, and will see that the babies are tagged, and in their re spective classes. The concessions are coming in, and Olean's Big Fair will have a midway that will surpass any heretofore at tempted in this vicinity. Come and meet your friends. The general ad mission is placed at 25 cents. As the | majority of Fair charge from 35 to 50 j cents, this should prove a great draw , ing card. Come. Sfx O'clock Dinner. Six o'clock dinners seem to be the one form of entertainment in vogue at | Emporium, at the present time. Miss j Carolyn Cox entertained eight young I ladies at her homo on Chestnut street, j last Thurday evening, in this popular way. The repast was sumptuous and ; was heartily enjoyed by all present.

The best mau was Mr. Wilber Roper of Augusta, Ga., brother of the groom. The parlor was beautifully decorated in white and green and the bridal party entered the room to the strains of the Mendelssohn wedding march, played by Miss Myrtle Olmsted, and took their places under a bower of fern and flowers, where the ceremony was performed. After receiving the congratulations of their relatives and friends an elaborate wedding break fast was served, covers being laid for over fifty guests who were waited up on by members of"The Ramblers" in a most delightful manner.
