RAILROAD MEETING. complain so far that Westfield haa turned the cold shoulder on them. Pitts" Great Julv Depression Sale LYON'S CENTRAL DRUG STORE Everybody in Westfield is more or less interested in having the C. A L. £. road extended to Westfield, and will do everything they can to make it as easy as possible for the company to get here. The citizens expected, sooner or later, they would be called upon to help it in some way, and when the request did come it was much more modest than was expected. A conference between the committee and the railroad men this morning has resulted in a practical agreement that if the $2,500 is raised, they will accept it in lieu of titles, no money to be paid until after the first train is run. On their part, the railroad agrees to have a way station on Main street, to put in a switch South of the street that will accommodate the pulley i works, the grist mill and Nixon Bros', marble works. It will aUo be a good location for a coal yard. As no money is to be paid until the first train runs, no risks will be taken. THEY ASK HELP OF CITIZENS TO BUILD THE ROAD. Ends Aug. 1.

A Committee Appointed To Consider The Bequest.—Progress of The Work. —The Road Wants Some Bight of There's no time, and there will be none for many a day to come like the present to supply yourself with seasonable merchandise—hot weather goods—for immediate use. We have gone through our many liberal stock and radically reduced prices on goods already lower than the market, but this year we shall be more strict with ourselves than ever and the stockmen must be very sure not to hold on to a piece of goods at a price that would need reducing after September ist, the end of the season. A Paint Ad-srar\tage. Way There is a great advantage in knowing about paint qualities, lou can select the color on any paiut chart or sample card, but now about the quality ? How will it look next year and for years to come ? It is best to get the Last Saturday morning the railroad officials of the Chautauqua & Lake Erie railroad called a meeting of the Water Board and a few citizens, at their office on South Portage street, to whom they wished to make an appeal for help to build their road, and lessen the expenses of its opera- Lasting Quality ir>. Paint. It's the only kind that is a good investment. . Is made to last. You cannot afford to paint every season. It won't be necessary if you insist upon using the Devoe Paint. Ruskin has said: may be known by their houses." Get in \he front rank by using the Devoe Lead and Zinji Paint ? tion The expansion of the summer wardrobe is not handicapped by cost this season. There are dainty fabrics here that cost very little. Representing the railroad, were Messrs. Barrow, Harris and Ewing. There were present representing the village, Dr. T. D. Strong, Hon. S. Fred Nixon, Samuel C. Crandall, V. A. Kent, J. JC. Hale, R. G. Wright, F. \V, Crandall, E. A. Skinner, M. D. Tennant, and several others. Dr. T. D. Strong was chosen and J. C. Hale secretary. Superintendent Barrows stated that the company had on hand sufficient funds to build the road according to the estimates of their consulting engineer, but they found by making an actual survey aad making some changes they deemed essential, the road was going to cost about $60,- 000 more than the estimates. The estimated cost was about $220,000. Inasmuch as the road was going to be of considerable benefit to Westfield, they felt like asking the citizens to help them share part of that expense. One of the changes referred to that increased the cost is the putting in of a stone arch and a fill of earth over Chautauqua Creek, where at first an iron bridge was contemplated. This arch will be 120 feet long with a throat 16x20 feet in the clear. At this point the fill is 100 feet. The reason for the change is that if a .*v -> bridge were used trains would have to come on it at each end on a curve, which is very trying to any structure, and the strain can be successfully withstood only by a solid earth embankment. The principal Assistance asked is for the town to purchase the right of way from Main street to the Nickel Plate road. - The matter was discussed informally and the conference resulted in the appointment of the following committee to take the matter under consideration: Hon. S. Fred Nixon, E. A. Skinner, R. G. Wright, S. C. Crandall, Hermon L. Kent. The committee appointed to secure the right of way from Main street to the Nickel Plate land immediately called a public meeting to be held in Virginia Hall Tuesday night. It then went diligently at work to get -options on the right of way. There were only three pieces of real estate involved, that of J. H. Dann, F. W. Crandall and J. J. Johnston. To one piece of property only ;was the committee able to agree upon an option. It was that of F.' W. Crandall, which was agreed upon at $400. In the case of Mr. JohnstoD, he thought he should have $200, and the committee thought $100 ample compensation. In the case of Mr. Dann, his asking price was $3,000 and the committee offered him $2,000. Neither party would make any concessions. That is where the matter stood up to the time of the meeting. At the meeting in Virginia Hall, Hon. S. Fred Nixon was made chairman, and Samuel C. Crandall, secretary. The committee made its report embodying the facts related above. In order to bring the mat-, ter before the meeting E. A. Skinner made a motiou, declaring it to be the sense of the meeting that Westfield raise by subscription or otherwise, $2,500, and offer it to the railroad officials in lieu of the title to right of way which they asked, the money not to be paid until the road is built. The matter was thoroughly discussed. Dr. T. D. Strong made a strong speech in favor of the road, and showed clearly how and why it would be one of the best things for the village that could be secured. Robert Shaw also spoke in a similar vein, but urged the committees and officials having the matter in charge to look out for the safeguards to the Tillage while dealing generously by the railroads. In order to dispel any idea that might be entertained that the people, in raising this money, would be contributing to the treasury of the Lake Shore road, Hon. S. Fred Nixon gave some of the inside history of how the company raised the money for the extension. As he himself had greatly aided the railroad officials in raising the money, he was able to tell with considerable detail, where, when, how and with whom the bonds were floated to raise the THE DeVOE LEAD & ZINC Just One Week More of the Depression Sale Prices. ' (Jar PAINT, tramp who was asked what it cost to paint hie red nose, replied : " It isn't finished, it's only a sketch !" And yet he had been painting/it for years. Like others he undoubtedly used poor paint. If he had come to us we could have given his nose a better color in half a minute than he had made in half a lifetime. There is nothing equal to the Devoe Lead and Zinc Paint for all purposes where quality is necessary. The ragged tooth of time is unable to dim the luster of the colors, and the quantity required is far less than the streaised and soaky paints which are upon the market. 3 Pieces 36-inch Madras Shirting reduced from I2£c to 7c.

Water Bonds Being Paid Off. It has been generally supposed that the expense of maintaining the water plant, lighting law suits and extending the mains had been so great that the bonds maturing August 1, would have to be refunded. Fortunately such is not the case. Every year for the next ten years, $6,000 of the water bonds come due annually. The first lot mature this year August 1st and $3,000 of|them will be paid. The water works are now in good shape, consequently growing better, and as the service increases and the interest decreases, all payments will be met when due. 18c Fancy Cable Cord reduced to 10c, 10c Fancy Dimities reduced to 6|c. 50c and 60c Shirt Waists go at 38c. 75c and 80c Shirt Waists reduced to 59c. vl.25 and $2.26 Shirt Waists at $1.25. 50c and 69c Dressing Sarques, sale price 39c. 89c and $1 Dressing Sacques at 65o. $1 50 and $2.25 Dressing Sacques at $1. 3 Ladies' Bicycle Skirts, all wool marked $4,25 to $5.25, at $2.75.

She saw him first rang her bell and turned out to let him pass. By the time he saw her they were close together and he turned to the same side as she did and the result was a collision.

Geer and wife are walking and pushing a wheelbarrow from New York to San Francisco on a wager. They have two and one-half years to do it in. Their wager is to pay all expenses on their way and earn $1000. If they do that and make the journey they are to receive $5000. Their method of making a living is to sell their photographs. The wheelbarrow has on it a load of 160 pounds, which consists of a leather trunk, camping ntenBils, some clothing and a shepherd pup. Mr. Geer has seen service in the Spanish-American war, dresses like a cowboy and appears to be able to make the journey. The wife looks as if the journey was anything but pastime. They passed through here Tuesday and are several days ahead of time. Last Sunday Dr. Rodier expected them here and had agreed to meet them and present them with his big black dog to be hitched in front of the wheelbarrow, but on bis way down town the dog had a sunstroke from which he died.

On Thursday of last week, while attending the Baptist picnic, Carl Gibbs, who works for Chas. Bourne had an experience with a young eagle that he will never forget. While bathing in Lake Erie, near Bourne's beach, he saw a large bird floundering in the water unable to raise and fly. He went out to it and found it to be a young eagle. Taking a leg of the jbird in each hand he started for shore with it and got along all right until he got where the water was shallow, when he stepped on a stone and fell. This caused him to let go with one hand. .Nq. sooner was one foot liberated than the bird buried the free talons in the young man's arm. It hung on as if grappled to him by hooks of steel. No efforts of himself or companions could get it loose until the bird was struck on the head and rendered unconscious by some men in a sailboat who came to his assistance. Then his foot was pried open with a hammer, but in getting him loose on one side the talons on the other side of the arm were driven into the boy's flesh their full length. B ASKETS SUMMER A. S.
