PUBLIC SCHOOL MEETING. east of £he present building, $6,000, and the Brewer lot on Academy street at $2,000. The Holt lot seemed to be the favorite in the discussion. The only objections raised against it were that of title, that it was low and swampy and the price was too high. The discussion Seemed to turn on the idea that if acquired at all it would have to be taken by condemnation, and in that event the title would be made clear. As for ite being a swamp, that idea was not well sustained. From the formation of the lot and all the land adjoining, it was piainly the bed of a natural drainage for considerable territory. This is clearly shown, as Shoenfeld said, by the vegetation, by the lay of the land and the recollection of old inhabitants. But it being a natu.al drainage it was perfect, and unless a very deep cellar was dug it always would be dry. It being drained by nature this must be so. As to price, the people seemed willing to abide by the decision of a commission. EXHIBIT LYON'S CENTRAL DRUG STORE GREAT UNANIMITY SHOWN FOR A Telephone Call 2To. 80.

Prodigal in variety, prolific in beauty, yet marvelously modest in price. You will enjoy just as fully, perhaps appreciate m«re, the artistic hats made iu our own work room. When the meeting was called to order Arthur B. Ofctaway was elected chairman and G. S. Flagler secretary. The chairman explained the object of the meeting and called upon Prof. Pattison for further information. He suggested the action of this meeting be to prooeed to the discussion of a series of resolutions to be voted upon separately at the close of the meeting by a standing vote.. On being put to a vote a motion to so prooeed was oarried. After the discussion the rising vote provided for the first resolution showed almost a unanimous vote for the Holt lot. The Spring Wall Papering papers represent many beautiful designs, good enough for a parlor or any room in the house. Our 6c, 7c and 10c papers are as good as those we formerly sold for twioe that sum, Our 15o, 20o and 25o papers are rich in design and coloring, and represent great skill and painstaking In bringing out the best patterns possible for popular approval. Over The meeting was characterized by the greatest harmony. It was quite evident that no ooncerted plan of action had been taken by the board, so the meeting practically run itself and resulted iu a crystalization of publio sentimentlargely in favor of the various resolutions passed 500 Wall Paper Patterns town for goods. If you Jack a roll to finish your work we have more; if you have a roll left you can return it. You oannot do this if you send away for goods. If you purchase here you know what you are getting. We never talk wool and sell cotton, or, in other words, we do not give prices on white back goods and sell brown backs. No Tl\e To start the discussion Dr. 0. E. Welch offered the following: THE PECK FARM SALE. §P W '5 The Model Farm of this Section Sold to Whereas. It is obligatory noon this district to furnish by purchase or erection additional school buildings, therefore Dean Brothers of Portland. Clyde and Stewart Dean, constituting the firm of Dean Bros., grape raisers and shippers of Portland, N. Y., have bought the Peck farm of R. G. Wright, paying $20,000. This is considered the model large grape farm in this section, and it certainly has a reputation for profit making that is enviable. /T^retyapdije Resolved, That it is the sense of this meeting that a suitable building should be erected for the higher grades of our school. IA A- JB We have been trying for years to /i 18 SO With OUT paints, get the best paint in the market and have finally succeeded. You need not take our word for this, but that of the State Ohemist who has analyzed it and pronouuoes it perfectly pure. We have reference to 0FRW5 Dr. Strong was the first speaker, and he told how the present sohool building was built, what a benefit it was to the place, and urged that a new building be erected with the same objects in view that then prevailed. While the old building was all right for its time, and ample in size, the growth of the place, the new requirements and greater demand's of the present made it necessary for us to take advanoed grounds and build according to our needs. He made a strong argument for a thoroughly modern high school building, up to date in every respect and large enough for many years' growth. The Devoe Lead and Zinc Paint. £ white lead used alone. -If it fails to do so you get your building repainted for nothing. We keep all kinds of paints, if you want them. White Lead, White. Zinc, Floor Paints, Carriage Paints, etc., as well as an almost unlimited supply o Paint Brushes. * It consists of 150 acres, 100 of whioh are in grapes. It has a good orchard, good buildings, a wine cellar, accommodations for 40 grape hands, inoluding beds and bedding, and a full complement of farm machinery. All this goes in the bargain. Those who want the fullest selection from the highest merchandise beauty brought to Westfield can find it only here. Those who wish to get such beauty at its fairest price cannot do so outside of this store. Again "Economy with supremest elegance." The twin power that has placed the Pitts stores ih the broad public favor enjoyed today. The goods and their prices tell the story to all who can weigh the beauty of elegance, refinement aud style. We hope to have you view this display while it is fresh, full, and beautiful as now. Drmgs ar\d Medicir\es We probably have one of the largest and best selected lines of drugs and medicines in all Chautauqua county, and back of it all, the skill required to make your prescriptions safe in our hands, and the knowledge that makes the handling of drafts a matter of security to all our customers. That it has a good record is shown by the fact that last year R G. Wright sold his whole crop of grapes to the Welch Grape Juice Co., and they brought about $5,000 The total expense of raising and harvesting them was not far from $2,500, leaving about the same amount of profit, or about 12} per cent, on the investment. This is better than any general farming that we have heard any report from. Mr. Wright never thought of suoh a thing as pulling up his viueyard, and the Dean Bros, evidently never contemplate any such a thing. They now have 300 acres of vineyard and stand next to John Farel in acreage. This farm was once sold to the Interlake Vineyard Company for $37,500 by W. L. Minton. HI DITTQ 21' 22> 23 MA,N STREET, ■ T I I lO, WESTFIELD, NEW YORK. Store open till 8 p. m. after Harcb 25. M. A. LYON. John R. Fay, F. A. Hall, A. E. Peirce and A M. Tennant spoke on the abject. Mr. Hall brought up the proposition of tearing down the old building and from the material with enough new added make a single bnilding large enough to accommodate the entire sohool. Previous to that Prof. Pattison had explained that the present bnilding oould not be modeled into a high school, but could be nsed for the grades. The resolution to build was carried.

All the leading and best things in that line, and a drag stock of the pnrest and best materials, and competent pharmacists to put up prescriptions. Trustee Sckoenfeld oame in late and said that the real objeot of the board in oalling this meeting was to find out whether the people wanted a high sohool building, with all the modern appliances for teaehing, plain in architecture and situated on a oheap site on a side street, or whether they wanted a building with more beautiful appearanoe, situated on a more sightly looation on Main street. If the former proposition was what was wanted 920,000 Was sufficient. If the latter was their desire, it would cost from $10,000 to $16,000 more.

Wait for our opening on Saturday, March 30th, to which the Ladies are cordially invited. High School Orchestra. Last year the High School organized an orchestra under the leadership of Thayer Fenner. When Mr. Fenner entered the University of Michigan it appeared that the orchestra, after having filled with credit a decided need of the sohool, would fall to pieoes quietly and be heard of no more. But the High School boys have so much musical talent that like truth " when crushed to earth shall rise again." So under the leadership of Harry Usborne the following organization has been effected, Laban Jenks, piano; John Welch, first violin ; Guy Smith, first violin ; Leo Skidmore, second violin; Harry Usborne, first cornet; Albert Harris, second' ooraet]; Edwin Stritzinger, trombone.

Orandall said that as he under stood the facts the bequest of Mr. Voroe to the Towns of Ellery, Chautauqua and Westfield, when it became available in eighteen months or two years from date, would bring an income sufficient to not only pay the interest on the bonds for fe sohool, but create a sinking fund that would pay the entire cost, so in voting for a sohool building the people would not in reality be taxed at all R.
