The village election last Monday
passed olT very quietly. Although
there were two tickets in the field, and
a slight contest was on tap, yet there
was but little discussion, and the usual
large crowd about the voting place was
One feature connected with this
election is rather strange. The regis
tration of voters made on Saturday
previous, resulted in 02 additions to
the electoral roll. This may show two
things: That many have been careless
about recording themselves as voters;
or a great influx of voters has taken
place since the last registration. 1'er
haps the increase is due to both causes.
The poll list also showed an increase
of 121 votes over last year, when there
was only one ticket in the tield. In
IS'JS there were two tickets, yet thi3
year's votes wero 50 in excess of the
number then cast. The ollicial count
for 11)00 resulted a3 follows:

Of Interest to Parents.
Director Tappan has sent the follow
ing to the teachers of our schools.
We belieye that patrons will approve
of the course outlined.
To The Teacuers
At close of school last night while
the children were on the way home
from school, I saw a little boy about
8 years old, one of the pupils, attempt
to "catch on" a heavy pair of sleighs.
He slipped, was caught across the
small of his back by the heayy runner
and pushed along in that dangerous
Eosition a distance of 50 feet, a sight to
orrify and paralyze any parent. He
might have been crushed to death or
maimed for life.
I realize how difficult it is for you to
look after these pupils after they leave
your presence; but I thins the parents
of the commnity will uphold us in do
ing everything in our power to prevent
this dangerous practice, either during
school hours, or on the way to and
from school. Adopt your own meth
ods, but let us do something to stop it.
If necessary, the board will aid you in
every way possible.
Harvey Tappan, Director.
The fourth treat in the Yale High
School course occurred in Central Hall
Wednesday evening, and consisted of
a lecture by Key. D. E. Croft, of Bos
ton, who presented the topic of "King
dom IJeautiful." The speaker made
many good points and clinched them
with a wonderful array of anecdotes
and witty illustrations. The general
effect of the lecture upon the audience
was uplifting and an inspiration to
better thought and life. The hearers
came away with tho sense deeply im-
Eresscd upon them that the "Kingdom
cautiful" was not a far away fancy
land, which few could see, live in and
enjoy; but each one might bo kings
and queens in every day life, in the
soulful manner in which they might
do life's noble duties. There was an
immense audience present almost
every seat in both floor and galery be
ing filled. This speaks well for Yale's
taste for the higher classes of amuse
ment, and our people's appreciation
of the more solid form of mental food.

Died, at IJrockway, where he has
lived for about 13 years, on Sunday,
March 11, 11)00, Wm. Patterson, aged
72 years, 2 months, and 9 days. The
deceased had been in poor health for a
long time and his departure was not
unexpected by his friends.
Mr. Patterson was born in County
Down, Ireland, near Drommarra. He
came to this country in 1858, first tak
ing up his residence in St. Clair, Mich.
During the war he enlisted in the 1st
Michigan Engineers, in which regiment
he served about two years. For many
years he resided near Lakeport, in this
county, coming to Brockway in 1887.
lie was married about 33 years ago,
and his widow still survives. To this
union were born two children, John,
who resides at home, and Mrs. Wm.
Wilkes, who resides in Brockway town
ship. Mr. Patterson was for many years,
previous to his death, a member of the
M. E. church. He was a thorough
Biblo student, perhaps as well posted
on that book's teachings as any man in
tho county. lie was a great reader,
especially the older class of books. But
no class ot reading was so interesting
to him as works on theology and kin
lie was a man of strong and clear
cut-opinions. Neither his church or
political creed was obtained second
handed, but thought out for himself
and when adopted, openly avowed. He
was also a conservative man, making
few changes in his opinions and rela
tions, and as such was not liable to be
blown about by every wind of doctrine,
lie was. in spite of his conservatism, a
very radical man in views and policies.
It is to be regretted that the generation
of men, of whom he was a type, are
fast passing away from the earth.
The funeral services occurred on
Wednesday, the 14th, and the inter
ment made in Elmwood cemetery,
Kev. J. A. Uowe conducting the rites.
These obsequies wero attended by a
large company of friends and neighbors
who have long known and respected
Cakd of Thanks. We take this op
pertunity of thanking tho many kind
friends and neighbors for their sympa
thy and aid during the last illness and
death of our beloved husband and fa
ther, Wm. 1'aterson. Weare especially
grateful to the M. E. church and choir
for assistance in the funeral service.
Mrs. Wm. Patterson and family.
A Yale Man In It.
Wo clip the following from the Daily
Pioneer-Times, published at Dead
wood, South Dakota:
Isaac (Jibbard, of Rochester, N. Y.
and 15. It. Noble, of Yale, Mich., have
purchased thirteen claims near Custer,
containing the recent discoveries of ka
olin clay, marble, onyx lithograph
atone and mica, and have organized
the Black Hills Porcelain Clay and
Marble Co. Mr. Noble is president of
the company; Mr. Gibbard vice presi
dent, and Fred W. Wellington, of
Detroit, Mich., secretary and treasurer.
The company is capitalized at 3,000,000
shares of a par value of one dollar each.
It will begin operations at once upon
the marble, onyx, lithograph stone,
and kaolin clay, and it means the es
tablishment of a gigantic industry in
Custer county within a few months.
On the property that has been secur
ed there are also large ledges of varie
gated marble, gray marble, and a red
mottled marble. One of these marble
ledges is 40 feet wide. There is also
an immense body of tombstone gran
ite, that polishes finely, and would
make a fine stone for building purpos
es. In fact there is marble on the
property fit for any use to which mar
ble could be put. It has been stated
by competent critics that the white
marble would be equal to the finest
Italian marble, by getting down far
enough on it to be beyond the influ
ence of the weather.
There is a ledge of onyx 11 feet
across, and some elegant specimens
have been taken out. To all appear
ances it is equal to any that is used in
the country, and it has been opened
up sufficiently to demonstrate that it
can be worked commercially.
Kaolin clay is largely used in the man
ufacture of china and porcelain ware,
and in the manufacture of 'particularly
fine wedding paper. It is in big demand,
and seventy-five thousand tons of it are
imported annually to this country from
Paris, for the uso of the manufacturers.
On the property of this company, at
the base of Harney Peak, there is a vein
of it twelve and a half feet in width,
and going down into the - arth, there
is no telling how far, and analysis
proves it to be a first-class article.
Wm. Orr, Newark, O., says, "We
never feel safe without One Minute
Cough Cure in the house. It saved
my little boy's life when he had the
pneumonia. We think it is the best
medicine made." It cures coughs and
all lung diseases. Pleasant to take,
harmless and gives immediate results.
As many as 4,000 dates have been
found on a single palm.
"I used Kodol Dyspepsia Cure in my
family with wonderful results. It
gives immediate relief, is pleasent to
take and is truly the dyspeptic's best
friend," eays E. Hartgerink, Overisel,
