Not Only in the Price, but where Real Value Lies, in the Quality. $3,500 OFFER REJECTED. LAKE SHORE FARM Th« Holt Site Hay Yet Have To Be Our Towns woman, Mrs. A. BK. Peacock, LYON'S CENTRAL DRUG STORE Condemned. Is Establishing a Fine Stock Farm, A special meeting of the Board of Education was held May 5, 1901, and the following trustees were present, Fenner, Peirce, Douglas, Ard, La Due, Schoenfeld, Weaver, Flagler. Mr. Fanner was elected chairman pro tem. • Our readers are well aware of the enterprise that Mrs, A. M. Peacock is showing in establishing in our midst a first-class stock farm, and will be pleased to read the following from the pen of D. R. Cushman, of North East, as it shows how her efforts are appreciated by those of other towns: Telephone Call No. 80. Hen's and Women's Seasonable a sublime lesson nature MM teaches us at this time of the ff|§ year, when forest and field are putting on their coat of green. There is freshaess and beauty everywhere. Why not imitate nature and put a fresh coat of paint upon the worn and faded buildings ? It is economy to do it, for a building will soon go to decay unltss kept freahly painted. When buying paint why not get the best ? •'Mrs. Alice M. Peacock, Westfield, N. Y., has a tine stock farm at that place. She is breeding along the lines of the Hamlin's • efforts at the Village Farm at East Aurora, near Buffalo. The' Village Farm is now acknowledged to stand at the head of the similar breeding establishments of this country. During the past decade they have produced more extremely fast horses than any other breeding farm, including the Abbot, the champion racer of 1900. This farm has been remarkably successful and Mrs. Peacock was wise in recognizing this and breeding along the lines of recognized success, instead of experimenting in theories of her own and probably making a failure as so many have done heretofore. Her motto evidently is in this respect 'nothing succeeds like success.' Her Westfield venture is known as the Lake Shore Farm. Her farm is headed by a four-year-old black colt, The Greek, by Athanio, 2:10, dam, Tansy, by Mambrino King. Athanio, the sire of The Greek, was purchased of the Hamlins by European parties, who won many races with him across the water. She has a number of gilt edged brood mares, one of which is Lucretia Chimes, by Chimes, dam, Lucretia 2:20, by Almont Jr. Another is Dora Chimes, by Chimes, dam, Daphne by Almont Jr. She soon expects a colt from each of these mares by the $10,000 Direct Hal. As Chimes is the greatest sire at the Village Farm these colts, with good luck, and barring accidenta, should make whirlwinds on the race tracks. Another of her matrons is Golden Robin, by Golden Gateway, son of Guy Wilkes, dam, Oriole by Chimes, Becond dam, Aurelia by Mambrino King. How is that for breeding ? Golden Kobin will soon have a colt by her side by Dare Devil, 2:09. This colt should be a peacock and Dare the Devil, or any other animal on the track. Among her youngsters are The Niece, by Athanio, 2:10 out of Katydid, a sister to Globe, 2:14$, by Almont (fr. Gold Hill, by Golden Gateway, dam, Chiming Bells, sister to Ed Easton, 2:09£, by Chimes, is five years old. She also has a two-year-old colt by Dare Devil, dam, Silvia Chimes by Chimes, and a yearling filly by Rex Americus, dam Gloria Chimes by ChimeB. Very few, if any, breeding farms in this country were ever started with as fine breeding stock as Mrs. Peacock has secured. If she continues to follow along the Village Farm breeding lines, she will have a success from the start, «nd the Peacock colors will soon be seen in the lead on our prominent race tracks. Wise people often achieve success by following along successful beaten paths while cranks often make great failures in efforts to work out visionary theories of their own. This applies perhaps more forcibly to the breeding of fast horses than to many other kinds of business. Mrs. Peacock is evidently one of the wise ones and we predict success for the Lake Shore Stock Farm, which might perhaps have been more appropriately named The Peacock Premier Farm." It was the colt of Lucretia Chimes that died last week, and was valued at $1,000. The other mares have foaled and the colts are doing nicely, and promise to make a sensation on the track, barring accidents. We understand that next year Mrs. Peacock's horses will appear on the track and will be driven by Geer's, Hamlin's noted driver. E. W. Holt was present and made the statement that the owner of the Holt lot was willing to sell it at $5,000. On motion of Peirce, seconded by Schoenfeld, that the Board offer him $3,- 000 for the property. Underwear. Mr. Holt rejected the offer Mr. Peirce then moved that the Board offer the owner $3,500, which was seconded by Mr. Ard. The resolution was carried. Mr. La Due voted in the negative. This offer Mr. Holt rejected, taking until the next day to consider the matter.Time is ripe for a change in undergarments, and we have a most interesting stock to show the particular buyer.
