His liabilities are about $i,000, with assets of stock and fixtures. .. Through the idea of a local .motorcycle' "enthusiast Warehouse " Point has been seeing some good sport this winter. Allen Pasco is the originator of the idea of having a-combination motor bob-sled. Last year Mr. Pasco conceived the idea of fixing his motorcycle so that he could use it on a bob-sled but the sled that he had then was not a success. In the spring he bought a new motorcycle equipped with three speeds. He built two bob-sleds after the style of the large bobs used by,the teamsters. He then took off the front wheel of the motorcycle and bolted the front forks to the framework. He left the back wheel equipped as it is in the summer, fastening a chain to the wheel over the tire. He then equipped the machine with a foot clutch and foot throttle and a speedometer. On his first trial, he found that the machine was capable of great speed for on the snow there is hardly any resistance. On the smooth ice fifty miles an hour were attained a week ago. He has averaged a speed of from fifty-five to sixty miles with himself and a passenger. The machine is equipped with two seats. The dimensions of the bobs are two feet wide, eight inches high and two feet long. Both bobs are the same size, so they track easy. The machine is attracting considerable attention, and opens up a new sport for motorcycle owners and another year will probably see several of them in- this vicinity.

First gentleman's prize, Fred Lyman; second gentleman's prize was a tie between J. Kennedy and George Crabtree, George Crab-tree won on the cut. The next wrist party and social will be held Friday evening, February 8 th. "Unquestionably the movement of most important in the gas industry of America just now is that looking to an advance in rates to consumers." Under the above heading a recent issue of the Gas Record goes at great length into the subject of rate increases in the gas industry In every part of the country gas companies have either secured higher rates already, in some cases by appeals to Utility Commissions, or their appeal is pending or ithey contemplate making the request for higher rates. Despite the advance in prices of raw materials and higher wages, gas companies by clean out economies have succeeded in holding down their operating costs so that the public is called upon to shoulder only a small part of the burden. In a summary of recent rate increases, which covers 52 cities scattered through 24 States and the Dominion of Canada, it is interesting to note that the largest increase comes in municipalities that have hitherto enjoyed a very low rate. Two towns stand out prominently in this summing up, two towns having the lowest per cent, of increase, Wakefield, Mass., and our own home town of Thompsonville. Thompsonville's increases was only 4% and Wakefield's the same; these two towns foot the list while Pittsburg, Pa., with 41% topped the list. Towns BIT IB JBp AT WOMAN'S CLUB MEETING.
