CHEESE $.18 – Cheese prices were again advanced on Saturday in Watertown. The salesmen were expecting a slight increase owing to the fact that the other markets of the week were a trifle higher. The price committee had very little trouble on Saturday in reaching a basic price. R.F. Baker announced that cheese was worth 18 cents. A year ago the price paid was 13-½ cents. Only once last year did the price get up to 18 cents and that was the last session of the Board in November.

THE STEUBEN MONUMENT – The monument to the memory of Baron Steuben and designed through coming years to mark the spot where he rests has been completed and put in place. It is 25 feet in height and is said to be a fine specimen of tombstone architecture. It will soon be dedicated to its sacred purpose by appropriate and imposing ceremonies. It will doubtless become a favorite resort for all who are familiar with the life and services of the patriot hero who rests beneath the monumental pile of marble.
