The vote on the amended motion resulted the same and the bills were allowed in full. But they show a poor sense of harinony in color. Those who use paint for indoor and outdoor work like to know that the quality of paint is as represented. The paint we sell is the One claim for sheep killed by dogs was allowed, that of £. W. Walker for three head, which, according to his testimony and that of his witnesses were valued at |5 each, or $15 for the whole claim. The object in trying to mmke the cat was to discourage making Westfield a wholesale dumping ground for the arrest and punishment of that tramping vagabond claas who ride up and down the railroads. The expense for this whole line of road'in Chautauqua county seems to fall upon the towns of Hanover and Westfield. If there was any appreciable good coming from it there might be some excuse for it, bat there is no apparent good coming from it. DEVOE LEAD ZINC and PAINT. It is sold under the guarantee of the manufacturers, that it will last twice as long as White Lead when used alone. The Fall of the year is the best ser son for painting yoar buildings. Paint dries better and makes a harder and better surface to stand all kinds of weather. Yon pay no more by purchasing the Deroe paint of ns, which is warranted strictly pure, than for most of the cheap paints sold in the market. Yon of course prefer the best, then why not come to us and get it. Yon do not have to take our word for it, but the word of tlie state ohemist, and every one that has used it. We have White Lead, White Zino, Venetian Red, Yellow Oohre, Floor Paints, Carriage Paints and everything else in painters material. We sell you only tbe beet goods, that oan be depended upon at all times. The resignation of B. L. Harrington, as constable, was accepted. Dr. W.

MENS', WOMENS* AND The accounta of Erie Hall, overseer of the poor, showed that he has paid for maintaining the poor $264.88; that his personal account was $51.91, making a total on poor account of $316.79. The resignation of Dr, E. Rood as health physician for the Town Board of Health was accepted and Dr. W. Stuart was sppointed to fill the vacancy. CHILDRENS' FALL The accounts of Henry G. Miller showed that he had expended $4,189.17 on roads and bridges. UNDERWEAR... M. A. LYON. By a resolution the dog tax was fixed at 50c per head. The heaviest items in his account are $777.61 for opening the Jillson road, which, with the $900 awarded for damages, as shown in the abstract, makes that thoroughfare cost the town $1,677.61. The matter of settling the special election accounts was discussed and as the Supervisor had already had ample instruction from the board to collect the same, going to the extremity of a lawsuit, no action was taken, and it is expected by the board that he will push the collection as rapidly as possible.

Before the laying out of the Jillson road there was a line fence between R. Q. Wright and M. McGarrell that had to be moved. Mr. McGarrell's portion of the fence was against McGarrell's pasture and he had to move it back the distance of half the width of the road. As this old fence was not quite as good as he thought it should be, he briftt a new one, and then came before the board and pot in a claim against the town for $20 to build that fence. The board thought that as he had just been awarded $350 damages for going through his land, that sum ought to cover the moving of the fence; that it was his tault of the commissioners did not take that matter into consideration. The claim was not allowed. Ladies' fleeced underwear at 25c per garment. The clerk reported that J. F. Williams, of the printing firm that made the error which has caused the county clerk and this towa so much trouble and expense, wanted him to say to the board at its meeting, that he would like to meet them with a view of settling the accounts. The message was delivered and the board decided as they had had no dealing with Mr. Williams, nor his firm, there was no necenity tor the meeting. The board's dealings are whollv with the county clerk, and the matter had been put ia the supervisor's hands for settlement. Fleece lined Hosiery 15 and 25 cents per pair. E. J.

There has been around town for a few days a rather benevolent looking elderly gentleman, and many and various have been the guesses as to whom he is. Some say he only needs to be a little younger and have a red head to resemble County Judge Fisher. Sunday morning he was mistaken for a Methodist Bishop, bat when he was seen going to the Presbyterian church, that theory was knocked ont. Others thought he was a Senator on a visit to Hon. S. Fred Nixon. At last some of his intimate friends let ont the secret and told that it was Frank M. Wright with his whiskers shaved off.
