While in Le Roy on a business trip,
we were indebted to J. W. Wyckofl
for an opportunity to look over the
new opera House just completed
there. It is known as Union Hall
because it was constructed by a union
of the chapter, the Blue Lodge of
Masons, the Odd Fellows and the
Grand Army post of tho placc, and Is
owned by these several orders. It is
50x90 feet on the ground and has on
the ground floor a vestibule and stair
way in front occupying some ton feot
in width, tho balance of the space
being occupied by tho hall and its
capacious stage, upon each side of
which aro two convenient dressing
'ooms. It is seated with 190 elegant
opera chairs and with common chairs.
Tho second floor has two halls for the
different orders with a large ante
room for each, and four side rooms as
a place of storage for tho special
furniture and fixtures belonging to
each. In addition to theso it has- a
large banquet hall with kitchen and
pantry in which is an ample supply
of crockery, a cook stove and every
thing in "apple pie order." The
building is a frame veneered with
brick from Chaska, Minnesota. The
cost of the building was $4,450.
The town, since its disastrous
cyclone, has more than recovered,
and solid brick structures now take
the place in most instances
of those then destroyed. Its
merchants carry line stocks and are
having a fine trade. *We dropped in
to see Wentworth Hayes who carries
an immense stock, and upon F. M.
Frisbee and son and found them with
a fine stock and an apparently prosper
ous trade. A pleasant hour was spent

finally cures the worst cases of
