®he HUfntblttm I A,. » v NO. 45. u VOL. XLV. WESTFIELD, CHAUTAUQUA CO., N. Y.. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1900. A MILITARY FUNERAL- THE GRAPE UNION-SO CALLED. IN MEMORIAM. Westfield Gas. LYOH'S CENTRAL DRUG STORE Mrs. J. H. Dann. Years ago there used to be gas springs near the lake which the Westfield Gas Light Co. piped to Westfield and supplied a great deal of gas to the village. For some reason these springs have not been utilized for several years. The place of this has been, to some extent, taken by private wells. R. G. Wright and Mrs. Peacock have had wells for quite a number of years, G. W. Patterson has one, and last fall J. H. Dann drilled a well that is now supplying three fires and nine lights. Remains of Soldiers Who Died at Santia- Its Annual Meeting Held Tuesday At The Home Office —No Special Change Mrs. Mary Elizsibeth Van Leuven Dann was the daughter of Martin P. and Elizabeth Van Leaven, aod was born in Portland, N. Y., June 5, 1849, and died January 26, 1900, at the age of 50 years, 7 months and 21 days. go to Rest at Arlington. Except That The Matter Of Salaries Tbe remains of forty-four soldiers who died in the province of Santiago of yellow fever last spring, and which arrived at New York, Saturday on the transport Mc- Clellan, arrived at Rosslyn, Va., today and were removed to the National cemetery at Arlington, where they will be interred tomorrow at 11 o'cleck with appropiiate military ceremonies. All but fifteen of the bodies hate been fully identified, and the caskets containing the remains properly marked. Most of the men were attached t> the 33d Michigan Volunteers, the 7th Regular Infantry, the 24th Regular Infantry, the 34th Michigan Volunteers, the 2d Regular Cavalry and the 10th Regular Cavalry. The only Washingtonian known to be included in this list is Eben Brewer, whose home was at 1636 Rhode Island avenue, and who died at Santiago, August 14 1898, while serving in the capacity of military postal officer. Are To Be Fixed By The Board Of Telephone Call XTo. 80. Directors. The annual meeting of the Chautauqua & Erie Grape Co. was held at the company's office hire Tuesday afternoon. The attendance was not large in numbers but a large majority of the stock was.represented. v CELERY NERVINE. November 20, 1867, 6he was married to James H. Dann, and with her husband went to live in Rouseville, Pa., where they resided until August 1873, when they returned to Portland, and lived until they came to Westfield in the spring of 1890, when they bought the Abbott place where they have since resided. The Great Blood and Nerve Tonic, has taken its place among the best remedies for all nervous disorders, as well as being a Scientifically prepared Blood Purifier. It stands at the head of the list of Celery preparations, is a larger bottle and costs less than any other upon the market. Price 75c. per Bottle. The point of greatest interest was the changes in the by-laws. After a thorough discnssion they were left substantially as they were last year. All the difference is that tbe fixing of salaries of local managers is now taken away from the town and vested in the board of directors. This is thought to be necessary, as there is such a difference in the judgment of the different town boards as to the value of the same services performed in the different towns. Hereafter the directors will fix the price according to the amount of work done in the different towns. Frank W. Crandall has got a gas well said to be the best one yet struck in Westfield. It is so good that it has stimulated others to put down wells. The rig has been taken to Samuel C. Crandall's where one will be put down at once. After that the same parties will drill another for Frank. Frank's well.is 430 feet deep. She lived a life of quiet retirement and of perfect devotion tj her husband, children and aged mother. Little was known of her inner life except by a few chosen friends. It might truly be said that she found her greatest happiness by making others happy. She will be most deeply missed by the home circle, of which she was the life, always unselfishly looking out for the comforts of others. It seems very sad that she should be taken when others at her age are at the prime of life. It is a great preventative of the La Grippe, from the fact that it tones up the system, and puts it in a condition to resist disease. One bottle will convince any person of its great value as a remedy for all Nervous Troubles and disorders of the Blood. Special Meetings. The special meetings at the M E. church are increasing in attendance and interest. A number have already gone forward and there is every indication of a good work being done. Services are being held every evening this week, at 7:30 o'clock, and a cordial invitation is extended to alt. The funeral services at the cemetery tomorrow morning will be of the simplest character, and will include the reading of the burial service by a clergyman not yet selected, the firing of a salute over the graves and the sounding of "taps," Appropriate music will be rendered by the Cavalry Band from Fort Myer, and a troop of cavalry from that post will serve as a military escort. Inasmuch as the President and the Secretary of War attended the funerals at Arlington of the other soldiers and sailors who lost their lives in Cuba and Porto Rico, including the victims of the Maine disaster, it is not improbable that they will also lend the honor of their presence to the ceremonies at Arlington tomorrow morning—Washington, D.

While her sphere was the home, she took delight in traveling, and greatly enjoyed, in the summer of 1887, a trip to England with her husband and oldest daughter, where she visited the scenes of her husband's childhood and spent considerable time visiting places of historic interest in L6ndon and other places in England, and last April, with her husband took a trip to Washington and Vir- On next Sunday services will be held at 10:30 a. m., and 7 p. m , and the subject for both sermons will be: ''Whatis Man."

" He who would through ignorance, or otherwise, cause the loss of a Patient's Vision, is little less than a Criminal." As the town of Harbor Creek made no nomination, the directors were empowered by vote to elect a director as soon as one was elected. The size of basket adopted was the 8- gima pound size. During her last sickness, which lasted nearly six months, she was at times a great sufferer, but bore the ordeal uncomplainingly and with resignation. Daring it all she retained her faculties unimpaired up to within a few minutes of her death. At all times she took a great interest in all things pertaining to the dai-iy lite of the household. She was constantly attended by her husband and children, but her thoughts were more for them, than for h;reelf. M n r times during her illness she has made the remark, especially to her daughters: "1 am not afraid to die, but I do hate to leave you, I love you all so much."

JOHN L. WHITE.

Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast, We have kissed thy marble brow, And in our aching hearts we know We have no mother now." G. W. Sawin, Spencer Skinner. ICE CREAM. SWEET CREAM. FURNITURE The Town Grape Co. Sleeting. (Telephone No. 94.) At the same time a movement was on foot at Amherst to provide a Memorial window to be placed tn the Chapter House of the same Fraternity. A description of it sent from Amherst is as follows: "The Memorial window is now in place. It stands, in all its beauty, at the end of the main hall, directly opposite the entrance. The design is a very appropriate one. A Greek philosopher sits on a marble bench, scroll in hand, teaching a noble youth. Back of the bench two gloriously colored marble pillars rise as supports of the structure. The background shows a line of purple hills, temple-crowned, rising above a bay whose waters reflect the purple of the hills and sky. The Philosopher has, thrown about him, a royal purple mantle falling to the sandaled feet. His face is that of a man in the prime of manhood, about fifty years of age, and interests the gazer at once. A youth, wear; ing a white tunic, belt-bound, with a goldcolored robe which he has tossed aside, leans forward listening with eager attention. He has a face of high hope, strong color, and inspires one with belief in his possibilities. Another mantle of gold is on the bench and trails to the floor. The purple and gold, the Fraternity colors are thus shown to great advantage. At the bottom of the window is an inscription telling of Professor Frink's birth at Amherst; hiB College and Fraternity career; his titles and professorships at Hamilton and Amherst Colleges; and his death at Amherst. No words can describe the color values of this beautiful window and the foliated border surrounding it is, particularly pleasing. The annual town meeting of the Westfield town association was held in Ogle's Hall Friday afternoon. There was a good attendance. For the finest Ice Cream and Water Ices and Sherbets call on J. R.

Douglas occupied the chair and secretary Fred R. Thompson kept the minutes. Mrs. Elizabeth Winsor Phillips died on I the morning of January 28, 1900, after an illness extending over a year, daring part of which time she was a great sufferer. About a year ago a cancer began to develop and relief was sought from a surgical operation at the Buffalo hospital. At the start the operation promised to bring about the desired result, but it appears to have had so firm a root in the system that she soon became a great sufferer and so continued to the end.
