I desire to call attention to the approaching celebration of the 100th anniversary of the settlement of Ohantauqna county to be held in Westfield on Jane 34 and 25, it is a moat extraordinary and important event, and will bring Westfield a large gathering of representative citizens from every part of Chautauqua county, including many people of note. Painstaking care and mncb expense has been incurred in providing a most interesting and instructive program of exercises. This event will afford the people of Westfield an opportunity and will also carry with it much responsibility. During the few intervening days every effort should be made to see that the lawns and roadsides and all the unoocupied ground practical be put in perfect order. If the weather should be favorable undoubtedly the resources of Westfield to provide for the comfortable entertainment of these people will be taxed to the utmost. All citizens who are in position to furnish rooms or take people into their homes should report at once to W. H. Walker, No. 7 Main St. And during these two dayt it would also seem desirable that not only all plaoes of business should decorate their buildings with flags and bunting but also, as many private citizens as possible, that Westfield may look her best.

His skeleton was unearthed last Saturday. No ooetly mausoleum marked his final resting plaoe. No solemn procession followed his body to the grave; no eloquent funeral oration was delivered at burial, but he went down to oblivion unwept, unhonored and unsung. He lived 5,000 years ago in the Past- Glacial Period of geological time and his name was Mastodon Gigantes. pay mere but you get more 8 womens'blank Cheviot Suite, reduoed from $18 and $20 to $13.50. 60 dozen Tin Top Jelly Glasses 23a 10 dozen house Brooms special 22c. 8 gr.

Y, Last Saturday some workmen were excavating in the swamp en Mrs. Peacock's property on Jefferson street and found some huge bones wbioh were later examined by Profa. Pattison and Hartel, Dr. Fenner and other scientific men, and pronounced them the bones of a Mastodon. Diligent search was then made for the rest of the skeleton, and on Monday many additional bones were found. So far two large bones, the shoulder-blade and hip-bone, twelve ribs which appear to belong to one side, ten vertebra, including those at the extremes of the back-bone, what seems to have been the oontents of the animal's stomach, one of the patellae, and several small bones wbioh are too badly worn for recognition—all this has been unearthed. By actual measurement the longest rib is 4 ft. 4 in. in length; the heaviest rib 4 in. in oiroumferenoe; the dimensions of the shoulder-blade are 16x26 in., while the hip bone measures 30x24 in. The search for the head, tusks and the rest of the skeleton is still moving forward, and it is hoped that the entire skeleton,or at least the essential parts, may be brought to light, so that the frame-work may be put together and the animal may be set upon exhibition. 7011 pay.

On complaint of the Village Improve* ment Society, Dr. Johnson of Albany, a representative of the State Board of Health, was in town last Wednesday and investigated the back alley and the laundry cesspool. He said the State Board had nothing to do with the matter as the Village Board of Health had jurisdiction in this case and had full power to abate all nuisances, and he left the matter in their hands.

The former was much larger than the largest species of the latter. It is likely that our present specimen was fifteen feet high and including the tusks, twenty-five feet long. The head, tusks, and in faot, the whole animal was unwieldly and cumbersome in its movements. On this account, he often became entangled in swamps or quicksand and so entombed alive. Fossils of the Msstodon are accordingly found eheifiy in swamps whioh also protect the remains from decay. Wooden Sbooa at County Centennial. GjTCome in and see for elf. yours Henry B.

Great enthusiasm has followed the discovery of the fossil and well ther may, for only a few places in oar state have been so fortunate. Particular interest has been shown by the young people, who have studied geology under Prof. Hartel and they number nearly 100. Tbeee pupils have long looked with envy upon the Jamestown High School which possesses a portion of the same kind of fossil, found a short distance north of the city about 25 years ago. Anacoountof the discovery would now be interesting reading and is found in the first ohapter of our "History of Chautauqua County." The finding of this fossil is specially apropos in view of our oomiog centennial oelebration. While other historic relies are being diligently sought for, it is eminently fitting that this comtemporaiy of prehistorio man should rise from the dead and assert his right to pre-eminence in the realm of antiquity. All hail to Mastodon Oigantes, the first inhabitants of the land of our fathers. The inspectors or agents of the postoffice department who have been at work in Cbautauqaa county for some weeks laying out new rural mail delivery routes have completed their labor and made their report to the department. According to the report made ereiy part of the country will be coTered by the rural delivery routes, 88 of which have been provided for. If the report is adopted, as is expected,the identtity of the old routes will be wiped out and the routes will be merged in the new ones. VOCAL AND INSTRUMENTAL KUSlO. We sell Groceries.
