By the boiling over of a kettle of lard at Jack Sackett's house one day last week a lot of clothes hanging about the stove took fire.

Rev. and Mrs. Seymour, and the Misses Cora Brackett, Jessie and Josie Slayton, all of Morrisville, were present at the Christian Lndeavor meeting last week and gave an in teresting account of the Montreal convention. The remodeling of the barn and the building of a new wood-shed have greatly improved the appearance of the jail premises. The substantial cellar wall under the barn was built by that superb knight of the trowel, Bert Backum. Mr. Anthony Gauthier, a younger brother of Joseph Gauthier, of this place, spent last week here with his brother. He resides in Lafayette, Ohio, and was accompanied by his wife. It was their first visit here in twenty-eight years. Now is a good time to save some thing with which to pay those taxes, which will become due soon. It will require a big effort on the part of many to "get there" on time, but there is great consolation that this is the last year of railroad taxes. The funeral of young George Gil more, whose untimely death was caused by drowning, occurred from his father's home last Thursday and was largely attended. Rev. Mr. Tay lor officiated and Col. E. B.

The damage to the building is estimated at $50. Chas. S. Raymond and Ephraim Crane, of Ludlow, bicycled over to this place from Ludlow last week, making the distance, 108 miles, in two days.

The docket for the August term of the Supreme court for this county is out. As it contains but eight cases it will probably last but a single day.

The final meeting of the creditors in the Boomhower insolvency case was held here last Friday before Judge White. It will be remembered that Boomhower was in the furni ture business in Wolcott and " cut a big swell " in driving his " Criterion " furniture wagon heavily loaded throughout the towns in the county, thus leading people to think he was doing an immense business. Like Davy Crockett's coon, however, he came down and his creditors are al lowed the handsome sum of 17 and 7-10ths per cent. Assignee Burnell, considering the case he had to han dle, did the best he could for the mourners.
